My dear the avenger we need to talk about your poor Arabic

1.You wrote:

Ah'lul Kitab (sic)

No it is transliterated as: Ahl al-kitab and vocalized in let us say modern Egyptian Arabic as: ahlel kitab

And do you really know what is really Ahl al-Kitab? And what is this "ul" thing with tablighees? It is either "al" or "el" but it is not "ul"!

Your command of Arabic is bogus!

2. You also wrote: Qu'ran (sic)

No it is: al-Qur'an and why do you tablighees do not include the definite article "al"?

3. Then you have the little gem: Mu'azzi

What on earth is this word? Do you mean the word: Mu3azzi or he who conveys his codoleneces (in case of death of a loved one)? And was Muhammad a mu3azzi? This is the mother of all gems!

4. The Quranic al-ruh al-qudus means the the holy spirit (ghost if you wish) whatever that is, and in Christian Arabic the Holy Spirit/Ghost of the Trinity is: al-ruh al-qudus! Your knowledge of arabic is bogus

But wait in extant (do you know what this word means?) translations of the Bible to Arabic as early as the 10th century the holy spirit/ghost of the Trinity is tranaslated as: al-ruh al-qudus which makes me suspect that Muslims early on had no difficulty with such translation. Do you get it?

Shame on you for pretending to know a language that you really do not know!

Stay tuned for more.
