Hello: the word istilam means RECEVING and paper receipt means wasl or isal oh and you can write to el-maany and tell them to fix their mistake but you know what? they will laugh at you


Really? where? In your dreams? oh I see that he says that bism is really an acronym? or is it that the word mateen should be mu'anath?

For the readers: there is no doubt that al-Tabari had no like for the book of Allah as he must have discovered that it is no more than poor literature that is full of mistakes in Arabic grammar as well spelling of perfect Arabic words and that it had its share of foreign words and is no match to the great literature of the people of Persia. al-Tabari and the people of Persia were dragged into islam and I suspect that the first real nation to leave Islam will be Iran

And you know what they say he who laughs last laughs best and I'm very sure that al-Tabari is turning in his grave
