الادنis different than الادنا the former means lowest the later means nearest. full stop, what is written in the Quran is الادنى that mean lowest -

Our dear Samer who pretends to be an Arab wrote the above gem and sorry that i deleted by accident the last letter of the word al-adna

Now here is my answer to the above: Bogus. The word in the Qur'an is ADNA and Not your bogus al-adna and it is alif dal nuun and alif maksura as in al-sharq al-adna or the near east and for this see Hans Wehr dictionary page 295A. You can also write it if you are ignorant of what is an alif maksura with an alif at the end. So are you that ignorant?

Now if you turn to page Hans Wehr page 294A you will find the word ADNA' and it is;

1. alif

2. dal

3. nuun

4. alif

5. hamza and this hamza makes all the differnce and you are ignorant

Now the word Adna' means viler, lower, meaner, more inferior

The word Dana'a means lowness, vileness, inferiority

Shame on you for debating a language that you do not know. So are you another tablighee who is debating issues beyond his level of education?

The word al-adna with the alif maksura means the nearer as in al-sharq al-adna. You are ignorant

> besides there are other lands that are in similar distance as Palestine, you cannot say that palestine is the nearest. such as Etheopia, Yemen, Sudan, Eritrea

Hello: the Persians did not invade Ethiopia or Sudan or Eritrea (sic) Shame on you

Read Edward William Lane Lexicon

Really? ... I suggest that you stick to urdu
