Teaching me Arabic? You better go learn some more.

in response to reader comment: Teaching Arabic to our dear Hussam

I can sense a pattern here. The ignorance doesn't stop. First of all, I have no Hindu ancestors, I'm an Arab. I'm from Saudi Arabia, my ancestors are from Yemin. I'm from an ancient Arabic tribe called Hashid "حاشد" (which has been around centuries before the birth of Christ). Hashid's ancestor is a tribe called Hamdan (همدان) which is obviously even more ancient. Granted, like most Arabic tribes back then they were pagans, but as soon as they heard of Islam when Ali bin Abi Talib was sent to them by Mohammed, PBUH, they embraced Islam, all of them. There was no invasion nor any fights.

Jahil doesn't translate to can't read nor write. I speak Arabic, it's my first language. A person who can't read nor write is called "أمي". Sure, not reading nor writing can be considered a kind of Ignorance (نوع من أنواع الجهل), but that doesn't make the person Jahil in general. If you're ignorant about something then you're a Jahil in that subject, but that doesn't mean you're a Jahil. Stop taking things out of context. Tell me, are you an Arab? Is Arabic your first language? Well, I am an Arab and Arabic is my first language.

You don't know me, why do assume that I can't speak nor write in Arabic? You're an Ignorant, a Jahil when it comes to me and my religion. See, does this make you a Jahil in general? From what I see, you seem to be ignorant in every aspect, so I'd say, yes, it makes you a Jahil, at least when it comes to Arabic and Islam.

Okay, as I said in my previous reply... don't you know what figuratively speaking means?? What's in the vagina? The womb. Vagina was mentioned only to state that she protected it, she was a virgin. When it says we blew into it, it just means that the spirit of Jesus, PBUH, was put in her womb. Blew into it? Well, do you know how blowing kisses work? When it says blowing, it doesn't say it in a dirty context, your mind is dirty to think that way. Blowing can be an innocent act, like blowing bubbles or blowing kisses, all things that don't need contact to be done. Go read some tfseer, because you're not qualified enough to interpret anything on your own. All your posts are big messes. Disasters, if you will.

Do you know what figuratively speaking mean? When God says He did something, it doesn't mean he did it himself. He doesn't have to do anything, he just says what shall happen and it does.

Okay, when you say then he must be God's son if he "blew" from his spirit into her. This argument can be also beaten with simple Arabic knowledge. Muslims believe that God is the creator of everything, thus everything belongs to Him. So, when He says "فنفخنا فيه من روحنا" that soul belongs to him. Also, if you read Sourat Adam, you'd know that it says the same thing about Adam, PBUH, when it says "فإذا سويته ونفخت فيه من روحي". Souls are created before the bodies, and they all belong to God. That's why self harm and suicide are big offences in Islam. The Qur'an is flawless, it's just your interpretation and your Arabic that are crooked.

Now lets go to Mohammed's, PBUH, name. What proof do you have that Quthm ibn Abd Allat was his real name, huh? Don't you think if that was true then it would have come out a lot sooner? He had a lot of haters at his time and still has, why never make that argument until the 21st century? Other than that, Abu Al-Qassim isn't his name, it's what he was called because in Arabic, the person is usually called after their oldest son. His oldest son was called Al-Qassim, and Abu means father of. My mother and father for example call each other Um Hussam "mother of Hussam" and Abu Hussam "father of Hussam". I'm guessing you're not an Arab now, cause Arabs wouldn't make that mistake, or most of the others you made. Unless you're lying to make a point and thinking that I was Indian with limitted Arabic knowledge, you thought I wouldn't notice. Either ways, you just keep making mistakes.

See those 6 points you mentioned? All of them are examples of where you've been wrong. (even though 2 of them are repeated)

But, I give you one thing that holds true. "Sometimes silence is golden". You should follow that rule until you've really educated yourself in Islam. If you haven't studied about Islam in an Arab country or from a trusted Islamic scholar, you should at least read more from people who Muslims consider trusted before dissing it, so you could at least have the true meaning behind what you're saying. Islam is the hardest to try to prove wrong, that's why people who try to do that, go ahead and take words out of context and interpret things they have no business interpreting the way they want. Come with better arguments next time, if there is a next time. Remember, silence is your friend. I always say before you try to disprove something, at least study it and understand it from the other point of view to be able to make compelling, educated arguments.

At the end, I don't need an Arabic lesson as I can school you in it all day long, apparently. Feel free to go take up some Arabic classes to improve yours, though. Even if you're an Arab, you need them.

Have a nice day! :)
