The Qur'an is the most preserved work of literature? really? and how about the adding of the long vowels and short vowels to the rasm (oh I forgot that you know no Arabic but may be you can ask your Mullah to tell you what it really means) by the 3Ulma and how about adding the consonants shadda and hamza? and how about the seven variant readings of the Qur'an?

If this is not editing I have no idea what is really editing. And how come we can read the word MLK in surat al-fatiha as either Maaliki or owner of (the Cairo Qur'an) or Maliki or king of (the Tunisian Qur'an)? and how come no one seems to know what the words: ilaf, kalala, ababeel and sijeel really mean? and why would your Allah uses Syriac words instead of perfect Arabic words eg: tur instead of jabal? and why would the God of the universe select an Arabian warlord and caravan raider to be his rasul? And are you aware that islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only (see Q14:4) and you ain't no Hijazi Arab? Pakistani may be? And did anyone ask you if you really did study anthropology?As if any one cares. And no we are not interested in your funny story about your conversion to the religion of the Arabs!

There is no doubt that who ever put the Qur'an in the way we have it now was very conservative and that is really good for those of us that study such text. As for the literary style of the Qur'an is it very clear that there is no one literary style in the Qur'an. You know what this means? it means that you could have more than one author. And how do you explain the so called "variant traditions" (eg: the two gardens tradition)? This could also mean that we have more than one auhtor of the Quranic logias and pericopes. And how do you explain the Syriac words and grammar in the Qur'an? Unless there were indeed multiple hands writing this confused and confusing kitab (the Qur'an that is) which is supposed to be a kitab mubeen maktub bi 3Arabi faseeh (oh silly me I forgot that you know no arabic. Urdu? but your Allah does not know any Urdu)

Now was Muhammad really uneducated? a strange pre-occupation by tablighees for reasons that I do not understand. So are you a Paki/tablighee who pretends to be some one else?

Well the clear answer is if you read Q96 it says: Iqra' or read which would really mean that Muhammad was able to read. If your Arabian Allah would have said: qul or say you would have a case. So much for Abul Qasim al-jahil

So what does the word ummi really mean (oh I forgot again you do not know any Arabic well the word means uneducated)? If you read Q7:157-158:

al-rasul al-nabi al-ummi

1. The word al-rasul means the porphet

2. The word al-nabi means the (Biblical) prophet and it is a loan word from Hebrew ooops so much for the claim that the Qur'an was written in 3Arabi faseeh!

3. As for the word Ummi we are told by Muslims that it measn uneducated. Which is far from the truth

And do you knwo why? and yes the Qur'an is nothing but poor literature but it is funny if your Allah is saying:

The prophet the prophet the uneducated.

The reading of this aya should be

The prophet (who belongs to the Jewish/Biblical prophets) prophet, the gentile (or non-Jewish)

and nothing about being uneducated. The word ummi really means the gentile ot non-Jewsih

So was Abul Qasim aka Qutham aka Muahmmad aka Ahmad really uneducated or is he just described as the gentile (Biblical) prophet? What do you think ya ayuha al-faylasoof al-kabeer?

Your claims are bogus

Now here is your bonus for today:

wa ma arsalan rasulan ila bilisani qawmuhu

You need to get your money back from your madrassa. And see what happens when you become the slave of a foreign language and culture that more likely than not brutalized your Hindu ancestors? Oh I forgot that you are an Arthur! Shame
