For the readers: The word Bism is not an Arabic word for sure as the correct Arabic word is really B'ism which means that the Quranic rasm could be read as bishm (and in this case it is a loan word from Syriac) or it is a mistake and I happen to believe that it is a loan word from Syriac

Now enter our dear Amin al-tablighee who does not know how to use Syriac dicionaries otherwise he would have realized that you look under SHM (Also SHMA) or name and here is thw word not just in Syriac but the word in Arabic and Hebrew

ܫܡܐ

Contents

[hide]

[edit]Classical Syriac

[edit]Etymology

From Proto-Semitic *šim-. Cognates include Arabic اِسْم (ʾism), Hebrew שֵׁם (šēm).

[edit]Pronunciation

  • IPA: [ʃ(ə)mɑ(ʔ)]

[edit]Noun

ܫܡܐ m (emphatic plural ܫܡܗܬܐ ,ܫܡܗܐ)

  1. name
  2. appellation, title
  3. fame, reputation, renown, glory
  4. (grammar) word; part of speech; noun
  5. person
  6. rumor/rumour, suspicion
  7. pretense, pretext

This means that SHM or SHMA in Syriac is Arabic 'Ism and that the bogus Quranic BISM should have been B'ism

Now you either put up or and you must pardon me shut up
