My dear Ramses, the plural for the word nabi is anbiya (see Hans Wehr page 941B) and also see Lisan al-3Arab. The word nabiyuun is also plural for a nabi because of the fact that it is in the Qur'an. But you tell me ya ayha al-fahlawi al-kabeer: when was the last time you used the word: nabiyuun? Let me help you: never. But you use the word anbiya right? and why is that?

This word indeed puzzled Suyuti in his exmaination of the masora (no this does nor mean a pipe. So what is the Muulim masora ya ayuha al-faylasoof wa 3lim al-nahw al-kabeer? You do not know do you? And do you know why? because you know Arabic grammar only by pure fahlawa). Suyuti declared (see Itiqan) that because this is in the Qur'an is must be the correct it must be correct and good Arabic. And my dear ramses you ani't Suyuti!

As for your rather poor Arabic that Nabi Allah would be voclaized with a kasra is just poor Arabic. It would be: nabiyoo llah as in the shihada where it says: blah...blah...blah Muhammadan rasulullah. It does not say: Muhammadan rasulillah. There is a damma there.
