Ha ha ha ..... denying Arabic grammar AGAIN!

And why is that you cannot answer ....?

These are more of the same assertion.... without any proof whatsoever. To compensate for any lack of proof - dhimmi falls back on - denying Arabic grammar. So if Arabic grammar does not exist and is false ... then how and where is the alleged mistake?

ha ha ha


Let us see what your Allah says in Arabic وجعل القمر فيهن نورا وجعل الشمس سراجا

Oh let me fix this poor Quranic Arabic it should be وجعل القمر فيهن نور وجعل الشمس سراج

All Arabic nouns in the accusative form that are indefinite and not concrete then they take an alif to show their diacritical mark.

That is according to actual Arabic.


"For singular nouns and broken plurals, it is marked as a fatḥah (-a) for the definite or fatḥah + nunation (-an) for the indefinite. For the indefinite accusative, the fatḥah + nunation is added to an ʼalif e.g. ـًا, which is added to the ending of all nouns (e.g. كان تعباناً kāna taʻbāna(n) "he was tired") not ending with a ʼalif followed by hamzah or a tāʼ marbūṭah. The dual and regular masculine plural are formed by adding -ayn(i) and -īn(a) (both spelled ـين in Arabic) respectively (-ay and -ī in the construct state, both spelled ـي in Arabic). The regular feminine plural is formed by adding -āt(i) in the definite and -āt(in) in the indefinite, both spelled ـات in Arabic."

For Dhimmi's fictional Arabic that exists in his mind - I cannot answer for that.

For the readers the alifs at the end of both words nur and sarag/saraj is really not Arabic but Arabized Syriac

Ah...... dhimmi has no evidence other than keep repeating BS.

And when he cannot answer for his lack of knowing Arabic rules- simple just call whole Arabic Grammar made up! So if no one knows Arabic.... how is the above a mistake?

Which Arabic is he using to judge the Quran? The one in his mind or the language of Arabs?
