Reader comment on item: MPAC Calls Me an "Expert on Islam"
in response to reader comment: This is the same argument: Read Qur'an!

"But when you ask what is really a scholar of islam? is he someone that can read the sources in Arabic and has great command of the Arabic language... this would get rid of most so called scholars of Islam that are Muslims." [Insert ithna' ashariyya Marja' here]

"And yes it is Read THE Qur'an but again tablighees have no clue about the definite article in Arabic as well as English"

(قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا) Only, the "Arabic" Qur'an. That not even Arabic scholar al-Tabari knows of the meaning. Why is there a difference in Ta'weel? This is because the "Ulama" just take guesses and then call it an "interpretation".
