in response to reader comment: $1 million for Finding "Jerusalem" in the Koran

Our dear Clyde al-munafiq al-kabeer (oh the Arabic? You told us that your Lebanese mother speaks five languages so she can help you with the translation) who is really another tablighee right our dear Clyde? Oh and you told me that you will check Arabic dictionaries and you will prove me wrong. I'm still waiting

>First, Arabs were in Jerusalem BEFORE the Jews- Islam came HUNDREDS of years AFTER the Arabs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem

The Arabs were in Jerusalem before the Jews? Really?

So in your own words you tell us about those Arabs! I will be waiting for you to make a fool of yourself again

>Second, if you only have a description of the place you are looking for, most people of a small community would recognize it, especially in that time period,

Bogus. al-Tabari himself had no clue what is al-masjad al-aqsa wa al-masjad al-haram and you think that you know? Oh and did you check Father Zakaria Botros review of the early islamic sources about this funny story? Let me guess you did not because you do not know any Arabic!

So let me ask you again: where would i find the name of Jerusalem or even Urshalem or Iliya or even al-Qudus in the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic ?

Oh it is all in the Golden Arches! Even al-Tabari did not recognize those goledn arches

>when they did NOT have the technology we have today.Like I said, most people know the Golden Arches, so that is a good identifying marker for McDonald's if the name can not be remembered.

And who are these people? Let me guess one of this cannot be al-Tabati right? And you think you know? What a fake

And for the readers: Our dear Clyde the fake is not telling us anymore tha you can find the name of Jerusalem in the Qur'an right?

>Same with a Mosque -where exactly do you think the followers of Mohammad worshiped?

Worshiped what? The moon god? The Byzantine structure built on top of thr Temple Mount and now is called al-Masjad al-Aqsa was built by the Umayyads who were really Christian Arabs period!

>The CURRENT DOME OF THE ROCK lies on, and, is a part of, the Farthest Mosque:

Then where would i find in the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic

ina qubat al-sakhra mawjuda wa inaha jiz'an men al-msjad al-aqsa

You will not find it and you will not even find the word al-Qudus in the Quran and even al-Tabari had no clue what is really al-masjad al-aqsa and you think that you know? shame on you

>Al-Aqsa Mosque (Arabic:المسجد الاقصى, Arabic pronunciation: [ʔæl'mæsʒɪd æl'ʔɑqsˁɑ], al-Masjid al-Aqsa (help·info) translit:

Bogus transliteration in modern Arabic it is el-msjad el-aqsa

How come you did not know that? And do you know what we call those that do not give credit to their sources? We call them plagiarists but why should you care

>"the Farthest Mosque"), also known as al-Aqsa, is an Islamic holy place in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Really? when where does it say in the Qur'an

ina al-masjad al-aqsa aw al-aqsa inahu makan islami muqaddas mawjud fi al-balad al-qadima fi al-qudus

You will not find it

For the readers: The islamic tradition did not fix the site of al-masjad al-aqsa as that Umayyads chruch located on top of the temple Mount until the 11the century CE

How come you did not know that our dear Clyde ?

>The site that includes the mosque (along with the Dome of the Rock) is also referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif or "Sacred Noble Sanctuary", a site also known as the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, the place where the First and Second Temples are generally accepted to have stood.[1][2] Widely considered as the third holiest site in Islam, Muslims believe that Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to al-Aqsa during the Night Journey.[3] Islamic tradition holds that Muhammad led prayers towards this site until the seventeenth month after the emigration, when God ordered him to turn towards the Ka'aba.[4]:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Aqsa_Mosque

Really? The where would I find in the Qur'an

1. al-masjad al-aqsa is this Byzantine Chruch bulit by abd al-malik of the Umayyads and is located in al-qudus?

2. Muhammad the Arabian warlord and caravan raider flew via al-buraq (so was it business class and did he enjoy a glass on chamapagne during his little flight, after all alcohol was still allowed)

Your claims are ridiculous

>"Jerusalem is considered Islam's third holiest city after Mecca and Medina.

So?

And are you aware that the author of the Qur'an plagiarized such story from the Zoroastrains story in the Arta Viraf Buraq and all?

>Among Muslims of an earlier era it was referred to as Bayt al-Maqdes; later it became known as al-Quds al-Sharif. In 638 the Islamic Caliphate extended its dominion to Jerusalem.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem

So where would i find any of this nonsense in the Qur'an? You will not find it

>It is YOUR logic that is faulty.

No and you must padon me the ignorant and the fake is you

Shame on you
