Oh and here is the evidence from no other than your master Sheikh al-Azhar web site about the many foreign words in the Qur'an and if you can read Arabic can you tell the readers what is he saying

4- الكلام الأعجمى

جاء فى سورة الشعراء:(نزل به الروح الأمين * على قلبك لتكون من المنذرين * بلسان عربى مبين) (1). وجاء فى سورة الزمر:(قرآنا عربياً غير ذى عوج ) (2). وجاء فى سورة الدخان: (فإنما يسرناه بلسانك لعلهم يتذكرون) (3). وجاء فى سورة النحل: (ولقد نعلم أنهم يقولون إنما يعلمه بشر لسان الذى يلحدون إليه أعجمى وهذا لسان عربى مبين) (4).

ونحن نسأل: " كيف يكون القرآن عربيًّا مبينًا ، وبه كلمات أعجمية كثيرة ، من فارسية ، وآشورية ، وسريانية ، وعبرية ، ويونانية ، ومصرية ، وحبشية ، وغيرها ؟ ".

هذا نص الشبهة الواردة فى هذا الصدد ، وتأكيدا لهذه الشبهة ذكروا الكلمات الأعجمية حسب زعمهم التى وردت فى القرآن الكريم وهى:

آدم أباريق إبراهيم أرائك استبرق إنجيل تابوت توراة جهنم حبر حور زكاة زنجبيل سبت سجيل سرادق سكينة سورة صراط طاغوت عدن فرعون فردوس ماعون مشكاة مقاليد ماروت هاروت الله.

Let me help you he is saying that there are indeed foreign words in the Qur'an the likes of Adam, Aabreeq, Ibrahim, Arank, istabraq, injiil, tabut, tawra, juhanam, hibr, hur (what a disaster the 72 virgins thing is a foreign word) Zakat (so next time you pay your zakat remember it is a loan word from Hebrew!) zanjibeel, sabt, sijiil, saradiq, sakina, sura (oh darn it the word sura is a foreign word and guess what? It is a Syriac word) sarat (oh we talked about this one already right our dear Amin?) taghut, 3adan, fara3oon, mashkat, maqalid maruut, haruut and last but not least ALLAH is a foreign word

You see our dear Amin if you do not like what Shiekh al-Azhar is saying then write him and tell him and he will think that you are out of your mind

Oh there is more

- ونحن من اليسير علينا أن نذكر كلمات أخرى وردت فى القرآن غير عربية الأصل ، مثل: مِنْسَأَة بمعنى عصى فى سورة " سبأ " ومثل " اليم " بمعنى النهر فى سورة " القصص " وغيرها.

Here is your evidence that sheikh al-azhar is saying and it is not me who is making this up that the words aleem and mansa'a are foreign words

Now and you must pardon me put up oh you know the rest of the sentence
