>The "dahu" in the Arabic Language means to extend and even out. It is said: "daha" the thing; "yad'hu dahwan".

This above little gem was written by our dear Mansoor who knows no Arabic and has to depend on a bogus translation now he is alluding to Q79:30 where his Allah says:

wa al-arda ba3da dhalika dahaahaa


1. wa al-arda or and the earth

2. ba3da dhalika or after that

2. dahaahaa or he made it FLAT

OR: And after that (he) made the earth flat

Now the word dahaahaa is from the root DHW which means: to spread out, flatten, level, unroll (see hans Wehr page 273A

The word dahaahaa has nothing to do with the word egg or the shape of an egg.

Only those ignorants wannabe Arabs would claim that the word dahaahaa means anything but he made it flat

So congratulations our dear mansoor but your Allah really says that the earth is flat and more voodoo science
