So let me help our dear Amin whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and here is what al-Tabari says about this Quranic disaster where the author of the Qur'an is making mistakes in gender and it is Q51:58

58} إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الرَّزَّاقُ ذُو الْقُوَّةِ الْمَتِينُ

الْقَوْل فِي تَأْوِيل قَوْله تَعَالَى : { إِنَّ اللَّه هُوَ الرَّزَّاق ذُو الْقُوَّة الْمَتِين } يَقُول تَعَالَى ذِكْرُهُ : إِنَّ اللَّه هُوَ الرَّزَّاق خَلْقَهُ , الْمُتَكَفِّل بِأَقْوَاتِهِمْ , ذُو الْقُوَّة الْمَتِين . اخْتَلَفَتِ الْقُرَّاء فِي قِرَاءَة قَوْله : { الْمَتِين } , فَقَرَأَتْهُ عَامَّة قُرَّاء الْأَمْصَار خَلَا يَحْيَى بْن وَثَّاب وَالْأَعْمَش : { ذُو الْقُوَّة الْمَتِين } رَفْعًا , بِمَعْنَى : ذُو الْقُوَّة الشَّدِيد , فَجَعَلُوا الْمَتِين مِنْ نَعْت ذِي , وَوَجَّهُوهُ إِلَى وَصْف اللَّه بِهِ , وَقَرَأَهُ يَحْيَى وَالْأَعْمَش " الْمَتِين " خَفْضًا , فَجَعَلَاهُ مِنْ نَعْت الْقُوَّة , وَإِنَّمَا اسْتَجَازَ خَفْض ذَلِكَ مَنْ قَرَأَهُ بِالْخَفْضِ , وَيُصَيِّرهُ مِنْ نَعْت الْقُوَّة , وَالْقُوَّة مُؤَنَّثَة , وَالْمَتِين فِي لَفْظ مُذَكَّر ; لِأَنَّهُ ذَهَبَ بِالْقُوَّةِ مِنْ قُوَى الْحَبْل وَالشَّيْء , الْمُبْرَم الْفَتْل , فَكَأَنَّهُ قَالَ عَلَى هَذَا الْمَذْهَب : ذُو الْحَبْل الْقَوِيّ , وَذَكَرَ الْفَرَّاء أَنَّ بَعْض الْعَرَب أَنْشَدَهُ : لِكُلِّ دَهْر قَدْ لَبِسْت أَثْؤُبَا مِنْ رَيْطَةٍ وَالْيُمْنَةَ الْمُعَصَّبَا فَجَعَلَ الْمُعَصَّب نَعْت الْيُمْنَة , وَهِيَ مُؤَنَّثَة فِي اللَّفْظ ; لِأَنَّ الْيُمْنَة ضَرْب وَصِنْف مِنْ الثِّيَاب , فَذَهَبَ بِهَا إِلَيْهِ . وَالصَّوَاب مِنَ الْقِرَاءَة فِي ذَلِكَ عِنْدَنَا { ذُو الْقُوَّة الْمَتِينُ } رَفْعًا عَلَى أَنَّهُ مِنْ صِفَة اللَّه جَلَّ ثَنَاؤُهُ ; لِإِجْمَاعِ الْحُجَّة مِنَ الْقُرَّاء عَلَيْهِ , وَأَنَّهُ لَوْ كَانَ مِنْ نَعْت الْقُوَّة لَكَانَ التَّأْنِيث بِهِ أَوْلَى , وَإِنْ كَانَ لِلتَّذْكِيرِ وَجْه . وَبِنَحْوِ الَّذِي قُلْنَا فِي ذَلِكَ قَالَ أَهْل التَّأْوِيل . ذِكْرُ مَنْ قَالَ ذَلِكَ : 24983 - حَدَّثَنِي عَلِيّ قَالَ : ثنا أَبُو صَالِح , قَالَ : ثني مُعَاوِيَة , عَنْ عَلِيّ , عَنِ ابْن عَبَّاس , قَوْله : { ذُو الْقُوَّة الْمَتِين } يَقُول : الشَّدِيد .

So can you tell us kuffar what does this very sophisticated Persian is saying? Let me guess you have no clue right? Hint: he is telling us that the word mateen (sic) really should be mu'anath but it is here mudhakar and he is trying every trick in the book to explain this big time fadiha

What a disaster
