Our dear Amin whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and who thinks that he knows Arabic garnmmar and his source of such knowledge is a non Arabic source called Shirah jami right our dear Amin?

> Classical is ancient Arabic of the Quran and Hadith.

Do you have any clue of something called the Muslim masora? You have no clue do you? then read about it

For the readers: There really are very few literary sources in Arabic before 642CE (see the 642CE papyri from Egypt) and the chances are the arabs used Syriac or garshouni (Arabic written using Syriac abgad) for their literary texts and not much is known about such spoken language.and what is most striking is that the Arabic language became Middle Arabic right away because the languages of the civlized in Iran and Syria and Mesopotamia affected the then spoken the Arabic language of the Arab invaders

The Qur'an as has been described as text with no context as we really do not know very much about how it came about. Now Quranic Arabic is still used today in spoken modern Arabic so is the likes of Allah descrbing himself as makkar so is the word makkar ancient Arabic? let me help you: No it is still used in today's Arabic so is this ancient Arabic Mr Einstein?

Now al-ahadith were written starting in the 3rd century which makes their Arabic not "ancient" Arabic but middle Arabic! How come you did not know that our dear Amin?

Oh and you can read al-Tabari in Arabic? really? why the delusions?
