in response to reader comment: Is the Qur'an a plagiarism of the Bible

Our dear Awang wrote this little gem

Being an illiterate, he can't even read or write the Arabic

Now I left the best for last it says in the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic and a book that says that islam is really the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only and you will find this verse in سورة العلق and this is what it says اقرأ باسم ربك and the word اقرأ really means READ so you tell us how could an illiterate read? More damaging to your case is that your so called Allah orders your so called prophet to قل or say but he told him in this verse to اقرأ and straight from Syriac and it means read what you see as for qul it means recite what you hear

But again your so called prophet was a plagiarist

Here in your bonus for today how come the author of the Qur'an spells the word Bism as the correct Arabic باسم but he spells it as the incorrect بسم in al-basmala any guesses our dear Awang
