Our dear Samer and his bogus Arabic and the word al-adna

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Sara - there is difference in Arabic in writing Low or near

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), May 3, 2008 at 18:50

Our dear samer who either flunked his Arabic nahw wa al-qawa3id class or he is beyond help wrote

>Arabic lexicon shows that there is a distinct difference between

So which little 'lexicon" is this our dear samer as in name and page?

>: dany with Ya' and dana with A; making the former to

Well let us see what the Qur'an says:

the word is al-adna and the rasm is:

1. alif

2. dal

3. nuun

4. alif maksura which has the same morphology as a yeh but with no two dots under the slope as in the word al-sahara and the last alif is an alif maksura and no it is not an alif or a yeh and you are ignorant

Now the 3Ulama edited the book of your Allah as follows and so much for the unedited Qur'an:

1. alif with a madda

2. dal with a sukun

3. nuun with a fatha

4. Alif maksura

and the word adana means the near as in al-sharq al-adna or the near east

Your claim is bogus so far

I urge the readers to check Hans Wehr dictionary page 295A and the word adna means near as in al-sharq al-adna or the near east and you will find it with an alif at the end and not a yeh or with an alif maksura as you will find it in the Qur'an

The lowest land means al-ard al-khafida but this is not what this aya says

>signify "low, ignoble, or mean;"

Bogus the word adna is written in the book of your Arabian Allah with an alif maksura could mean closer, lower, inferior, lowlier, smaller (see Hans Wehr) but in the aya it means the nearer

Now if you check Pickthall he translates it as nearer and Dawood whose mother tongue was Arabic translates it as: neighbouring

>latter,-; with a [app. as meaning

' ;) and thenear].

You must pardon me our dear samer but your Arabic is bogus

>The word used in the Quran is the former word with Ya

Bogus. the word used in the Qur'an has no two dots under the slope which makes it an alif maskura your claim is bogus and shame on you for posting this drivel

But again the arabs and their imperialism brutalized your ancestors and for this I say: shame
