al-Maghazi means the invasions and your Arabic is just as bogus as it can get

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: To dhimmi: Fundamentals of Islam are written in Quran and not in al-Maghazi by Waqidi

You give me a reference that is no reference and you think that i did not notice?

For the readers the root GhZW and the word al-ghazwa means the invasion the plural is al-maghazi or the invasions

(see Hans Wehr dictionary page 673A)

Your claim is bogus... I suggest that you stick to Urdu.
