For the readers our dear Deb is told by his masters the Arabs 200-300 years after the death of Muhammad that he wrote letters to the Negus of al-Habasha wa Herqil (read this as Heraclius) and malik al-majus (read this as Khusro) and also to a certain al-Muqawaqas who was Malik Bilad al-Qibt (sic) or the king of Egypt asking them to convert to islam a religion that did not exist for 2-3 more centuries!

Now the story of the letter to al-Muqawqas is grounded in the Qur'an as you shall see and we do have the most to prove that such story is no more than a bogus story and their is nothing historical about it

1. The source of such qissa (read this as a story of fiction) is Surat al-Tahreem or Q66 and if you read the first few lines they just do not make any sense but this did not stop the Ulama from telling us that this is the story of a certain Mariyya al-Qibtiyya (Mary the Copt) a slave that was sent to Muhammad as a gift by a certain al-Muqawqas of Malik bilad al-qibt (read this as Egypt) and that Muhammad sent a letter to him asking him to covert to Islam!. Now for the readers: You will not find either the name of a Mariyya al-Qibtiyya or al-Muqawqas and nothing not even a word about such bogus letters in such sura period. Which means that the ulama were making things up. We can stop here and say so much for the bogus story or Mariyya al-Qibtiyya but I will continue

2. Notice that the words QBT or Qibti (male Copt) and Qibtiyya (female Copt) and Bilad al-Qibt (the countries but read as country of the Copts) did not exist before 642CE as they are the Arabized Greek word for Egyptian Aegyptios and Muhammad and his Allah never use such words in the Qur'an because Muhammad would have known Egypt in its Semitic name Masr/Misr and Egyptian would be al-Masriyuun and he would have called her Mariyya al-Masriyya and not Mariyya al-Qibtiyya so it is very clear that the fact that the tradition uses the word qibtiyya a word that had no meaning to Muhammad that this is a very late story that is all made up

3. But if we turn to Ibn Kathir we discover that the Quranic allusions in surat al-tahreem are about Muhammad eating some bad 3asal nahl (read this as honey) and that he had bad breath and this why we have this little drama in his little abode. So should we believe Ibn kathir that tells us that there really was no such character as Mariyya or should we believe the likes of the other Ulama that tell us that there really was a Mariiya al-Qibtiyya and how about this honey story should we believe?so was it honey or was it a story about a certain Mariyya and it cannot be both? so which one is it our dear deb as it cannot be both

So much for the Quranic claim that it is a kitab mubeen

4. Now this is not all as the qassas of such fable that al-Muqawqas received the letter of Muhammad asking him to convert to islam and he sent him a gift that included this Mariyya and her sister and her name is Sirin (read this as Shirin) but this is not a Egyptian/Coptic name and it is clearly a persian name which means that the hands of the Persians were involved in the composition of such fable. And now to add spice to the story al-Muqawqas not only sent Mariyya and her sister as gifts but he sent food and two jahshan (the dual case for jahsh or ass which were creatures that did not exist at that time in Mecca and Medina) and they are given the funny names of names of Daldul wa Zarzur and to add to the mess there is a castrated male slave from Egypt! Typical qissa and no more

5. Now the islamic historical tradition that is the biggest literary fraud in the history of humanity tells us that al-Muqawqas was the king of Egypt but if you turn to the Egyptian sources in the late antique period there was no such ruler of Egypt called al-Muqawqas but through great scholarship by Alfred Butler the so called al-Muqawqas must have been Cyrus the melkite patriarch in Alexandria and he is the one that surrendered Egypt to your maters the Arabs our dear deb! Now we know who is really al-Muqawqas!

6. Now we are told by the islamic historical tradition that Muhammad sent such letter to Cyrus aka al-Muqawqas in 627CE! right our dear deb? But wait Cyrus was not in Egypt in 627CE as the Egypt was still occupied by the Persians who invaded Egypt (see Surat al-Ruum) in 616CE and did not leave until 628CE! So you tell us our dear deb how can cyrus recieve such letter when he was not in Egypt at that time? He returned to Egypt in 633CE or after the death of your so called prophet! And he left Egypt again after surrendering it to your masters the Arabs in 642CE (oh darn it I must be a Zionist as I use the CE thing)

So much for the letter of Muhammad to Cyrus but this is not all

7. We are told that Muhammad's letter must have been in Arabic but the reality is Arabic was very defective as a language up to about the time of the Muslim masora in the 3rd century of islam! So you tell us how can anyone read a letter in defective a defective language? and did Cyrus read Arabic? the answer is no and did he have anyone who reads Arabic? the the answer is no! So how was he able to understand such letter? Oh did Muhammad have anyone who speak Coptic or Greek? we are told that Muhammad told his minions to learn and speak Syriac but not Coptic or Greek a language which Cyrus did not know! Could it be that Muhammad sent such letter in Garshouni (Arabic rexts written using Syriac alphabet) well if so Cyrus did not know any Syriac for him to be able to read such letter and he did not know any Arabic either

And how did Cyrus coomunicate with Muhammad little agent that carried the letter to him let me guess in sign language?

So much for the bogus letter thing

8. So who composed such letter? The tardition tells us that Muhammad is the one who composed it and wrote it! But he was ummi which was read by the ulama as jahil or cannot read or write!

But if you read Q96 it syas iqra' bi ismi rabak or READ in the name of your God and it does not say recite as in talawi so it means that he was able to read. As for the word ummi if you read the Quranic al-rasul al-nabi al-ummi one must read it as the messenger/prophet (that belongs to the Arabs) the prophet (nabi is a loan word from Hebrew) the GENTILE (and not the jahil) and the word ummi is really a loan word from Hebrew 'am ha-ares or common folk or gentiles

So much for the Qur"an a book that even Muslims have no clue about what it really says

But wait: We are also told that in Mu3ahadat al-Hudaybiyya (treaty of al-Hudaybiyya) that Muhammad was told that he should not sign it as Muhammad rasul allah. We are told that he took a pen and crossed the word rasul allah and wrote instead Muhammad ibn Abd allah which means that he was able to read and write! So much for the uneducated rasul but again he must have been a jahil as the Qur'an is no more than poor literature

So is Muhammad the the writer of such letter? It seems that he could be but in this case how come Allah cannot protect such a letter? and how come Muslims do not have such copy still extant? Let me help you: because it never existed

9. This is what i call "old civilizations are not conjured away" the beauty of Egypt and Egyptians is that they they wrote a lot and with the fact that you have great climate with very low humidity papyri and other literary sources can survive for ever and as a matter of fact the first extant papyri in defective Arabic come to us from Egypt in 642CE but the letter of Muhammad to al-Muqaqqas is just not there and if we read Yuhanna of Pishati (aka John of Nikiu) chronicle (he was an Egyptian priest that wrote his chronicle from 640CE until 690CE) or at the time of the arab invasion you will never read him saying: "oh those Arab barbarians are the followers of Muhammad that sent a letter to Cyrus"! and you know what? the silence of the extant Coptic sources about such fable s very significant

10. Oh more from such qissa so we are told that Mariyya al-Qibtiyya had a boy and his daddy was Muhammad and his name was Ibrahim and who died at age 18 months or is it 3 years and only allahu a3lam and that he died in 636CE! Can you imagine the son of Abul Qasim aka Muhammad and not a single word about him that is extant? and you know what? this is no more than part of such fable and that Ibrahim is no more than another imaginary son as the little Qasim in the Kunya of Muhammad!

11. What is most amzaing about such fable is that later writers seem to know more details that earlier writers did not seem to know which means that no one in sane mind should believe such story

12. Oh last? We are also told by your maters the Turks that you can find such letter in an ivory box and it is at the Topkapi Museum! Another bogus claim as such extant letter would have made it to Hoyland's survey

So you tell us our dear deb do you still believe that Muhammad send a letter to Cyrus?
