Oh I forgot to mention so who is really the soucre of the tradition quoted in al-Tabari's exegesis of the Quranic disaster bism and to remind the readers that the tradition says that Jesus said that he does not know what the word bism means (very bizarre for a man whose first language was Syriac!) and that it is a mistake and it is an acronym and not a real word and that it is not an Arabic word known by the Arabs or their grammarians.

What a disaster the word bism in the basmala is not really an Arabic word!

Oh the source of the tradition? Oh al-Tabari tells us that it is Muhammad!

What a disaster

So you see our dear Amin who lives among kuffar it is your sources that tell us that and if you do not like it then destroy them and good riddance
