Hi Sara

You know what is really funny is that the likes of Esq cannot read speak or write Arabic but this does not stop him from commenting on the language of a book that he cannot read! I call this delusional

And the funny thing is the word Ahad in surat al-ikhlas is clearly not an Arabic word (I believe that it is from Syriac and not from Hebrew although it is a perfect Arabized Hebrew word for one as the dead give away is the following word is Allah which is a loan word from Syriac Alaha or Allaha) as the author of the Qur'an wanted to say that Allah is one and in Arabic it should have been

qul huwa allahu WAHID (and not ahad) instead of the Quranic Qul huwa allahu ahad (or one of)

The reason is the word Wahid in Arabic means One however the Syriac/Hebrew word for one which is Ahad (when Arabized) means ONE OF and not one, So who are the other Allahs?

Oh are you reading this Esq?
