Ignorant friend

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?
in response to reader comment: The Qur'an is full of mistakes in grammar and syntax and spelling or perfect Arabic words

You see my dear friend your ignorance of the very wide literature in the arabic language and the old history is such a proof with all the poets and poems that used to be written at those times all proves the real wide use of the language and the very different structures of it unlike the poor language you speak (English) which is very limited and that's why it's so easy to learn that even someone like me didn't have to take an courses or special education to know how to speak with it.

To make things clear one of the miracles of the Quran is that it was revealed with such structure to challenge the best poets and language experts of that time who always bragged about their control over the poets they write and how noone can compete them because after all the arabic lands had no other special thing to compete at so the poem was their only shelter that most of the poets used it for living.

The next thing you should know that the grammatical rules of the arabic language were put after the Quran was revealed (of course they were used but not known as grammatical rules instead they were used naturally in the course of thei everyday spoken language) when other nations from other origins started to enter islam and don't know how to speak arabic or how to pronounce the words correctly so all rules were collected and studied well and then the Quran scriptures began to include those accents all over them to help the readers pronounce the verses correctly.

The answer to your so called mistake and still you use the same attitude that you know everything which is not right. I know you know arabic obviously so I found no need to translate for you read the next paragraph about the plurals in arabic (alhaqeeqy wa almajazy) and know that the word Alana'am is not (moa'nath haqeeqy) a real feminine word and can indeed be used as a masculine.

الحقيقيّ والمجازيّ

ولأجل ما سلف من اختلاف بين الذكر والمذكر وبين الأنثى والمؤنث كان من التذكير أو التأنيث ما هو حقيقيّ وما هو مجازي. أما الحقيقي فهو ما كان فيه اتفاق بين المذكر والذكر الفرد وما كان فيه اتفاق بين المؤنث والأنثى من الإنسان أو الحيوان. قال الدماميني:"وكل منهما أي من المذكر والمؤنث حقيقي وهو ما له زوج من الحيوان كامرأة ورجل وناقة وجمل فكل من الرجل والجمل مذكر حقيقي وكل من المرأة والناقة مؤنث حقيقي. ومن النحويين كأبي البركات بن الأنباري وابن مالك من صرح بربط دلالة اللفظ المؤنث على الحقيقة التأنيثية بدلالته على ما له جهاز تأنيث

ومتى انفكت هذه العلاقة خرجت الظاهرة إلى دائرة المجاز. فالتذكير أو التأنيث في غير الإنسان والحيوان مجاز. وهو مجاز في اسم الحيوان المحتمل للدلالة على الذكر أو الأنثى. وهو في الجموع مجاز. ويثير الرضي قضية مجازية التأنيث في الجموع فيستثني منها جمع المذكر السالم، قال: وكل جمع غير ما على حد التثنية، وهو جمع المذكر السالم، مؤنث غير حقيقي فحكمه حكمه على نحو ما مرّ ولو كان جمع مؤنث حقيقي كالهندات إذ للجمعية تأنيثه أي لأن تأنيثه إنما هو بالتأويل لكونه جماعة ولم يعتبر التأنيث الحقيقي الذي كان في المفرد لأن المجاز الطارئ أزاله كما أزال التذكير الحقيقي في رجال وإنما لم يبطل الجمع بالواو والنون التذكير الحقيقي في الزيدون، لبقاء لفظ المفرد فيه فاحترموه

you still think I'm a victim of ignorance? well Im have to tell you that you are the real victim of ignorance because as it seems you don't know alot of things and still argue with such severe tone trying to impose your idea as the right ones but they are not.
