For the readers: any Muslim who tells us that the Qur'an has no foreign loan words in it is either ignorant or a liar or is making things up.

And this time I will go after the word al-zakat which you can find in Q98:5 and it is written in the rasm as الزكوة and edited yes edited by the masorites as الزِّكاوةَ and we are told that this word means charity one of the pillars of the religion of the Arabs

Oh and we are told by the masorites that the etymology of this word is from Zaki زكي which is far from the truth as the word charity in Arabic is really al-sadaqa or الصدقة which is a loan word from Syriac Eastern Syriac : ܙܹܕܩܬܵܐ Western Syriac : ܙܶܕܩܬܳܐ Eastern phonetic : ' zid qta

What a disaster another loan word from Syriac

Oh the word al-zakat? It is a loan word from Hebrew Tzedakah: Charity

See what happens when your so called prophet "borrows" ideas from far superior civilizations and then incorporates them in his little book and then has the audacity to tell us that the Qur'an is a Qurana 3arabiyya or Arabic Qur'an! so who is the liar here our dear Amin?

What a disaster
