Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: In Hadhan lasahiran is a grammatical mistake in the Qur'an

Submitted by Abdelrahman (Egypt), Dec 18, 2012 at 02:31

I seriously am not free to reply to everything and though I asked you to check it yourself because it exists all around the internet you wanted to hear it from me

"In hadhan lasahiran", there are many faces of grammetical use for this sentence and here are 3 of them

1- the word "in" is for confirmation and the it's pronoun is "mansoob belalef" as they it was used in the old poets at the days of the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and afterwards specifically the tribe of Harith Ibn Ka'b where they used to "yolzem almothana belalef" in all cases as in the next verse of poem for the poet Howayir Alharithy

تزود منا بين أذناه طعنة *** دعته إلى هابي التراب عقيم

where the underlined word (Mothana) should have been "magroora belya' " but instead it was obligated to use the " alef " instead so it works fine

2- the word "in" is for confirmation and its pronoun is " dameer alsha'n" removed and the word Hadhan is a " mobtada' marfoo' belalef " and the whole sentence "hadhan lasahiran" is "fi mahal raf' khabar in"

3- the word " in" is for confirmation but with the meaning of " na'am" (yes) which invalidates its work and it doesn't affect the next sentence and that the word "hadhan" is " mobtada' marfoo' belalef"

There you go my friend I proved you wrong and that you lack knowledge but Im expecting you to try and sneak around and change the subject to something else.

"Our dear Abd el-Rahman who is here to do a little da3wa islamiyya" but sorry my friend Im not her to do da3wa islamiyya although it would be an honour for me to do so but Im not prepared to do so but Im merely trying to clarify things for people with wrong knowledge, you are free to choose whatever to believe but my advice is that you better choose carefully.
