"Caleb" - simply wanted to attribute a lie to me - yeah, woo, go boy! .

He forgot to mention what the lie attributed to me is. Without that. remains any ones guess. Also how exactly is this article an evidence against me? A few choice quotes would have been nice.

----------

Quran does have word that are non-Arabic. The names of Hebrew/Jewish Prophets for example. They Arabized versions of Hebrew names.

This is also indicated by how how Arabic treats these names. They referred as Ism Ghair Munsarif. Foreign names are generally placed in this category.

Arabic is also a Semitic language - with many common words with other Semitic languages. Especially Aramaic.

--------------

Alcohol is an English word. But of Arabic origin. It will always be an English word. And its origin will always be Arabic.

Hopefully this simplifies things for you.
