Our dear mansoor and his Arabic language lesson for the day

>Quran the glorious is also called Furqan which means standard.

So the word al-Furqan means the standard? Really? Well the Arabic word standard means: miqyas and qa3ida (see Wortabet dictionary page 356A). Pickthall translates it as the criterion but he is also wrong as the Arabic word for the criterion is al-daleel or al-miqyas (see Wortabet dictionary page 99B) so wher did you get your bogus translation from? Let me guess: your glorious madrassa!

The Arabic word al-Furqan was a linguistic puzzle to the Muslim masorites and based on Sibawaye's F3L one can say that the root of the word could be from FRQ and the word was read as: the destinction between the right and wrong and not your bogus standard.

It is safe to say that the word al-Furqan is the Syriac word: pwrqn' or furqan which means salvation (see Mingana) and so much for the claim by the author(s) of the Quran that it is a kitab mubeen maktub bi 3Arabi faseeh

Now do you see what happens when you become the slave of a foreign culture and language?

>For Muslims any body who claims the book he is following is believed to be the Word of God then it should be compared with Quran and those statements which contradict Quranic teachings and information are believed not to be the Word of God.

Really? How about the fact that your Allah has this little funny al-nasikh wa al-mansukh thing? do you know what this means? It means that your Allah cannot even make up his mind.

>Most of the so called divine revelations are believed to be the mixture of God and Human words as in Bible Gospels are believed to be Word of God and other texts are related to Jesus's words and teachings thus forming complete Bible.

The Qur'an is the word of a God? really? how do you know that? Oh because the Qur'an says so!

> In Islam Quran and Ahadiths are in different books not mixed up as done with Bible

So there are Christian and Jewsih adadith? Are you for real?.

SNIP Pakistani web site

>For Vedas and other books, those statements which are in conformity to Quran are assumed to be of divine nature...

Really? and how do you know that? The Qur'an is silent about Hinduism our dear mansoor, and why is that? could it be because Allah is an Arabian deity who knew about nothing beyond Arabia?

>but there is no strong evidence that Vedas are the words of God, who received it and on whom it was revealed. However there is a general understanding that this could be "Suhuf-e-Ibrahim" the Scrolls revealed to Prophet Abraham (Hazrat Ibrahim A.S) and the word Brahama is derived from the name of Prophet Abraham. This is a deep subject and you can see several websites to confirm it.

Wow I'm so impressed. Suhuf e Ibrahim? ROTFL Pakistani Arabic it is called suhuf Ibrahim that e thing is Paki

As for the Hazrat thing are you aware that the arabic word Hazrat means I will pass gas? See what happnes when you become the slave of a foreign language and culture?

So Ibraham was really a Brahman? really? But wait: How did Ibraham get to Mecca? Which travel agency did he use to book his travel? and did he travel first class or tourist class? and did he use Visa or Amercian express to book for his travel to Mecca?and did he stot on his way to Mecca and where did he stop? and where did he stay in Mecca? as in the name of the hotel? and did the hotel have sauna and hot tub and a bar? after all these were the good old days when you still can have a glass of wine in mecca! But wait Jews are not supposed to go to Mecca. So much for ibraham little trip to Mecca!

>Plato, we are lucky we have the extra ordinary treasure of information on our finger tips through worldwide web, we should seek knowledge and pray to our Lord that he may guide us towards the truth and make us understand what he wants us to understand.

What truth? that you do not know any Arabic? or that you are a wannabe arab? or that islam brutalized your Hindu ancestors? or that you are here defending Arabian imperilaism? so which one is it?
