You are making a fool of yourself again

>I confirm. 3 : 96, with the word Bakka, referring the psalm 84. Bakka is Jerusalem. Mecca didn't exist at this time (695). The caliph Al-Mamun wrote his name over the Abd Al-Malik name on the Dome of the Rock. In the 830, Mekka remained unknown.

Then show me from Tafsir al-Tabari ( the earliest extant tafsir). In actual fact al-Tabari has no clue as you shall see below. He starts by saying واختلف اهل التأويل or al-Mufasereen had no clue what this whole verse means. He also tells us that بكة means مكة he does not say that it means al-Quds. As a matter of fact al-Tabari very often uses the Roman name of Jerusalem and in Arabic it is الياء or Aelia. Stop making things up and BTW the word بكة is edited by al-mufasereen as بكّة or بككة . Compare with weeping or بكاء or Buka' and the word Bakka has nothing to do with the word بكاء. Your command of Arabic is big zero

Oh and in Syriac the word weeping is ܒܟܐ or Bukha and nothing in common with your little cockamamie claims

Here is Tafsir al-Tabari in Arabic

Now prove him wrong and make a fool of yourself again

For your Allah's sake stop reading tablighee web sites it will ruin your brain
