My dear mahfooz rabina yihfazak akthar wa akthar and as for my screen name like I said: I like it and get over it. And do you know what "Get over it" really means?

Your screen name? It should be: Mahfooz al-Rahman! (hint: lam shamsiya wa lam qamariya wa nattq aw kitaba.). Oh well silly me what is the use as you know no Arabic!. And i'm not even interested in the least if your name is really mahfooz or whatever.

So you call me "my dear"! My dear mahfooz: tsk....tsk...tsk... you are not very original.

So what did we learn from your your and you must pardon me: Let me help you: Nothing. Not a thing.

You must pardon me but you live in a little fantasy world.

Oh I forgot and your foray in Benghali-3Arabi and al-Lugha (oh the ghain letter again) al-3Arabia is just pathetic, And it is al-Rasul al-Karim and it is not Rsul e-akram. And it is khutbat al-wada3 and not khutabul wada. You are even confusing your Allah.

Your funny remarks about Syro-Aramaic betrays your total ignorance of what is really Syro-Aramiac, It is for sure not a dead language in the Middle East. There are about between 1-2 million Syro-Aramiac speakers in the Middle East in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, and check out the Chladeans. It is also preserves in the liturgy of many Christians in the Middle East. But wait: do you really know what is Syro-Aramaic? I very much doubt it. You do not know even your arabic.

Now as for Syriac/ Aramaic the Qur'an preserves many Syro-Aramaic words including (see Mingana and I'm using his classification):

1. Religious terms:

Kahin, masih, qissis, diin (oh this is the favorite word of ignorant tableghees and their funny thing about Islam is the only diin), safar, mathal, _Furqan_ (oh this one again), taghut, rabbani, qurban, qiyama, malakut, janna, malak/malaak, _Ruh al-Qudus_, nafs, waqqara, aya, salla, sama, khat iya, kafara (oh the kafir word), dhabaha, tajalla, sabbaha, qaddasa, hub, tuba.

2. The word Allah is from Syro-Aramaic: Alaha or Allaha (Nestorian) and no I do not believe that it is a contraction of al-Ilah!

3. Qur'an! this is vey much a Syriac word and it means: reading. Notice that the word: Arabic word Iqra' means to read!

4. Common words:

Husban, muhaymin, nuun, _Tur_ (this is indeed the locus classicus of Syriac in the Qur'an. The arabs have the word jabal which means mountain. The Egyptians used to have a qurantine station in the Gulf of Suez for pilgrims arriving form the Hijaz Remember: Tur Sinnin wa al-balad al-ameen? and because of this little Quranic aya they called the quarantine station: Jabal al-Tur or the mountain of the mountain! as they could not recongnize the word: Tur as an Arabic word that means jabal) tabara, shaani'a, bariyya, 'aqns, hanan, 'umm, abb, misk, maqalid, istabraq.majus is very clearly from Syriac mgws.

5. As for the infleunce of Syro-Aramaic on orthography and construction of sentences in the Qur'an this is beyond you as you know no Arabic but there are numerous words, grammatical constructions and sentences in the Qur'an that by their orthography and or structure "betray Syriac infleunce."

But this is not all your allah also preserves the literary works of the Syrians and the Greeks, fiction and all, in the following examples in the Qur'an:

1. "The seven sleepers of Ephesus" and we have it in the Qur'an as Qisat ahl al-Kahf and your "rasul e-akram" has the audacity to call it the words of his allah. So much for the bizarre.

What is most funny here is that the brazen Muslim 3Ulama read the name of Decius (DQS in Syriac) as al-Raqeem (remember the little dog?). So much for Muslim fantasy.

2. "The Romance of Alexander" and this is the story of Dhul Qarnain, and your "rasul e-akram" calls it the words of his Allah.

So you can see my dear mahfooz you seem to have no clue what is really Syro-Aramiac and you seem to be unaware that every time you recite something in your allah's book you might be reciting some Syro-Aramiac word or sentence. So much for a dead language and so much for wannabe Arabs that know nothing about the Middle East.

One can almost re-write the Qur'an in Syro-Aramaic! So much for the bogus claim that the Qur'an is writeen in 3Arabi faseeh. (oh silly me I forgot that you do not know any Arabic, but you have a degree in English but such degree would not help you in such a topic).

And you want me to debate religion with you? Why? for starters you cannot even understand what the Qur'an really says _IN ARABIC_! Oh I forgot that you are a hafiz. Do not make me laugh. Big deal!!!

But like I said: You are out to spread the religion of Islam that brutlalized your ancestors. Shame.

PS: It is Masr (Egyptian Arabic) or Misr (Classical Arabic) and it is not Mis'r as you claim!
