This is what al-Tabari tells us about the meaning of the word Deen and Islam

Reader comment on item: Arabist Snobs
in response to reader comment: Islam and Peace

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Aug 18, 2014 at 09:00

Our dear Amin should be consulting his Muslims sources and if he did he would have discovered that in Q3:19 or آل عمران ١٩ his so called Allah says ان الدين عند الله الاسلام and this is the translation of Yusuf Ali (the big time fake): The religion before God is Islam

Well if we read al-Tabari we get the following

ومعنى الدين في هذا الوضع الطاعة والذلة

This means that the word Deen does not mean religion and it means obedience and submission this means that Yusuf Ali was either ignorant like you or he was a liar

So can you tell us kuffar what how does al-Tabari define the word deen here?

Oh it gets worse

Then al-Tabari writes

وكذلك الاسلام وهو النقياد بالتذلل والخشوع

Nothing about peace so far so can you tell us kuffar how does al-Tabari define the word Islam?

Then he wrote

والفعل منه أسلَمَ

Or and the verb from it is ASLAMA or he became Muslim

Now you tell me how come al-Tabari is not usuing derived forms? Hint: It is a kafir invention by kuffar for other kuffar

Then he wrote

بمعنى دخل في السّلم

Or the meaning (of ASLAMA) he entered al-Salm

This means that David is right

Then al-Tabari wrote

وهو النقياد بالخضوع وترك الممانعة

Or al-Salm means to be led to submission and to leave any opposition

Nothing about peace do you see why you need to read your sources first before you make a fool of yourself

For the readers the term Deen al-islam really means to agree on what it true and right

Nothing to do with the word peace or Salam

Oh so tell us more about Mirza Ghulam the plagiarist
