Our dear Amin does not really know what the word salvation really means read and laugh

>I am here as the Saviour. The Salvation :-)

Oh Allah spoke to you too? masha'allah I thought that he only speak to Arabian warlord and caravan riaders so are you an Arabian warlord and caravan riader? and he spoke to you in which lnaguage? the guy is an Arab or did you forget?so do you hear voices too? and do you see Jinn too? and what does Gabriel look like? and will there be a hadith too? You think may be you need to go and see your GP and demand to see a tabib nafsi after all we here in the west regard people that hear vioces and claim that Allah spoke to them to be nuts!

Oh al-Furqan? let me help you and help your deobandi/tablighee masters that cannot speak read or write Arabic

The Quranic word al-Furqan puzzled the ulama that worked on the Muslim masora in the 3rd century of islam and this is how the ulama worked on words that did not have clear meaning

1. They reduced the word to its jizr or root and in the case of al-furqan the logical root would be FRQ

2, And the word would be yufariq or he divides, al-farq (the differnece) , mufariq (he who yufariq)

3. So you can see that the word al-furqan would not fit here

4. The logic would have been to look into Syriac and indeed in Syriac we have the word Purqan(a) and because there is no P in Arabic it becomes Arabized as Furqan where the letter feh replaced the Syriac P

5. So what does the word Furqan realy means? It means salvation which is a Christian concept and for sure not an islamic one so congratulations our dear Amin but you are Christian! You think i should tell your deobandi/tablighee pals that you are Christian? Tsk....tsk...tsk...

So much for the bogus claim that Muslims really know what the Qur'an says
