>>This transliteration is more evidence to me that you are a Pakistani (and there is nothing wrong with that) that pretends to be someone that he is not which means that you have no credibility<

>Now, I suggest

Suggest what? that you are no more than a demagogue

>ou re-look and see that there is a vowel at the end of al-Hayyu so the a in al in the following word is dropped and pronounced l-qayyum since there is a vowel at the end of the following word so put that together in transliteration and you have al-Hayyu l-qayyum. It is still written out al-Hayyu al-qayyum but pronounced al-Hayyu l-qayyum.

You wrote al-hayyul qayyum and you think that i did not notice?

>I thought you said you can read arabic???

Read? so is it vocalizing or transliterating? Which one is it? you have no clue do you? so which one is it ? We are talking about transliteration here mr ignorant and it is al-hayy al-qayyum and get over it. Oh the short vowels? they do not exist in your Allah's rasm
