Our dear Amin who tells us that he knows "ancient" Arabic and that he earned not one but three imaginary degrees in Arabic! Masha'allah

if so then he must be aware that the Quranic word bism or بسم is poor Arabic and it should be b'ism or بإسم and this is indeed good Arabic and this is the Arabic that our dear Amin Arab masters seem to use and here is an example from the web http://www.facebook.com/pages/%D8%A7%D9%81%D9%88%D8%B6-%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%A6%D9%84-%D8%BA%D9%86%D9%8A%D9%85-%D9%84%D9%84%D8%AA%D8%AD%D8%AF%D8%AB-%D8%A8%D8%A5%D8%B3%D9%85-%D8%AB%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%B1-%D9%85%D8%B5%D8%B1/180974741937973

And this is the title افوض واءل غنيم للتحدث بإسم ثوار مصر or I elect Wael Ghonim as the speaker IN THE NAME (B'ism) the revolution in Egypt

I do not see bism here? how come it is not used here? and do you know why? because bism is poor Arabic that no one seems to use beyond the recitation of the basmala

So where does bism come from? It is from Syriac Bism or ܒܫܡ

But again this is what islam is all about lies and more lies and delusions

Oh there will be three more parts about such little gem al-basmala
