Teaching Arabic to wannabe Arabs

Reader comment on item: Friendless in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: Difference between hafida and ahsana

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Aug 30, 2012 at 07:40

So our dear Haim is wondering about the meaning of the word hesn and it really means fortress http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&word=%D8%AD%D8%B5%D9%86&lang_name=English and the Quranic word احصنت means protected/guarded and no it does not mean عفة or chastity as the liar Yusuf Ali tells us

But wait it seems that Allah went through the "fortifications" which means that Mary was subjected to a sexual act aganist her will do you know what this means? any guesses?do you want me to tell you?

What a disaster

Oh it must be the rhetoric sobhanallah!

Oh the word حفظت which is not the word in this little gem means http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=English&word=%D8%AD%D9%81%D8%B8 so you tell us O paragon of wisdom what is the difference between both words and if you have a direct phone line connection could you ask him why he selected ahsana instead any guesses?

What a disaster...

Submitting....
