Our dear Laila el-fahlawiyya el-kabeera whose ancestors the Copts were, and still are, brutalized by islam but does she care?

>I've also seen him speak in several local tongues as well (Egyptian, Saudi....)

Really? he can speak Egyptian Arabic (el-lugha el-3amiyya) ? really? masha'allah

Or bi sahih? huwa biyikalim el-lugha el-3amiyya ya roh baba? fen inti shufteeh biyit kalimha? sobhan allah

And for those of you that cannot understand Egyptian Arabic the above sentence would be in modern classical Arabic

Ya roh aboukee Hal al-Sheikh hamza Yusuf yatakalm al-lugha al-3amiyya al-masriyya wa hal sami3ti al-skeikh Hamaza Yusuf yatakal al-lugha al-3amiyya? Sbhan allah

But again your likes believe that an Arabian warlord and caravan raider spoke to an Arabian deity via an angel! How pathetic

So where is your evidence? and do you know what? we kuffar say that if anyone makes a claim then it is he/she that has to provide evidence to support such claim so where is your evidence that the so called Shiekh Hamza Yusuf can speak flunet and clear Egyptian Arabic? and all we kuffar have to do is to watch you making a fool of yourslef

And why would he sepak Egyptian Arabic which is the language of Egypt now when islamists and wannabe Arabs in Egypt would want to distance themselves from their mother tongue or Egyptian Arabic you tell us ya ayuha al-falyasoofa al-kabeera

For the readers Egyptian Arabic is a real language (lugha) and it is not just a dialect (lahja) of Arabic and it is the mother tongue of our dear laila but does she know that? I doubt it very much

And what is most amazing is that even islamists like her would have no clue that Egyptian Arabic is their mother tongue and not modern classical Arabic

For the readers: Hamza Yusuf' babbles the usual Quranic and the usual Islamic gobbledygook Arabic which our dear Laila would be able to understand but can he have a conversation in Arabic? I really doubt it very much as he seems to swtich to English once he ends his Quranic and islamic Arabic and the real issue is he has a real strange hybrid accent in Arabic

As for gyptian Arabic there is not reason for this wannabe Arab to learn it after all it is not the language of his Arabian Allah
