Our dear Amin who was told in his madrassa that the Qur'an is written in perfect Arabic and it has no foreign words in it and not he is realizing that it is all lies

So Sheikh al-Azhar is telling that indeed the following words in the Qur'an are not Arabic words

1 The word منسأة in سورة سبا or Q34:14 which was read by the ulama as stick but here is the disaster the word stick in Arabic is عصى او عصاية and the good ole sheikh is telling us that this is a foreign word! Oh I'm shocked

2. The word اليم in سورة القصص or Q28:40 which was read by the ulama as river or may be sea or may be ocean but these words in Arabic are نهر بحر محيط and the good ole sheikh is telling us that it is a foreign word! and what a disaster

Now guess what is the source of these non Arabic words? Any guesses?
