You're kidding right

You proved nothing. Your examples again had nothing to do with the issue raised between the author and myself. I held that it is not a part of the religion as based in the Koran. Which it is not. You select some random items from Hadith which I view as purely cultural and historical additions. You have proved nothing. I can well read and write arabic but what is your point in doing it. Are you attempting to impress me or someone else, because it doesn't. I can write and speak in Turkish also, so what? Okay I'll add Indonesians, Malaysians, throw in some of the "stans" all people you have a problem with and oppose on the simple grounds of what they believe although they all may believe it differently.

The fact remains the author is incorrect and you are blinded by prejudice. I would add that this is one of the things the author does that irritates me. ... By the way I'm not "Dear" I'm a man and am only addressed as "Dear" by my female friends. Others call me by my Christian name or Sir. I also am not impressed by false usage of colloquial language sets.

However, if it makes you feel better you can just believe you got it right and know all about Islam and arabic and the rest of the world is clueless.
