For the readers: there is a vocalization rule in Arabic where the letter lam will not be vocalized as in the word the sun which is written as; al-Shams but vocalized as a-Shams but again our dear Issam is clueless about the difference between TRANSLITERATION v. VOCALIZATION and bel taqrib as his Hijazi masters would say he does not realize that the word al-ruum or the Romans would be written as: al-Ruum or el-Ruum but it is vocalized as e-Ruum or a-Ruum

But again our dear issam or is it hava or is it ashley is really ignorant

" [...] el-ruum el-ortodox [...] el-ruum el-catoleek [...] " What a rubbish Arabic pronunciation! Ya wldl9a7ba, we say "a'rum alurtodux" and "a'rum alcatuliik". Get some courses on Arabic before taking part with your masters

This post is more evidence to me that you have no clue about the difference between what is really transliteration and what is really vocalization of Arabic words
