For Waell and the glorious Qur'an? really?Part deux!

Reader comment on item: Walid Shoebat: "Palestinian turns from radical Muslim to true Zionist"
in response to reader comment: understanding Arabic

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Feb 25, 2007 at 06:23

My dear Waell I read your reply as:

1. You know no Arabic. But Islam is really the religion of the Arabs only and you ani't one. Wanna know more?

2. I challenge you to prove me wrong.

The Qur'an is the most edited of books and I will give you an example one more time:

The rasm of the word MLK in Surat al-Fatiha is read in the 1923-1924 the Cairo edition of the Qur'an as: Maaliki or the "owner of." Notice that the 3Ulama in the 3rd century (the masorites) edited the rasm MLK be adding:

1. an alif that did not exist in the rasm after the meem.

2. a kasra under the lam

3. and another kasra under the kaf

The same rasm is read in the 1969 Tunisian edition of the Qur'an as: Maliki or the "king of."

And here the 3Ulama _edited_ the book of your Allah as follows:

1. They added a fatha bove the meem

2. then they added a kasra under the lam.

3. then they added another kasra under the kaf.

So which one is it maaliki or maliki? It cannot be both. It is either that Muhammad heard it as maaliki or maliki? So which on eis it ya ayuha al-faylasoof al-kabeer?

So much for the unedited Qur'an.
