Our dear MS you see I'm not done with you

and for both sexes; The BEST garment is righteousness and modest conduct (7:26).

Oh this is what I call the "underwear" verse and so Muslims cannot say that we kuffar do not check an d here is what al-Tabari says about this embarrassing verse

{ يَا بَنِي آدَم قَدْ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ لِبَاسًا } : يَعْنِي بِإِنْزَالِهِ عَلَيْهِمْ ذَلِكَ : خَلْقه لَهُمْ , وَرِزْقه إِيَّاهُمْ . وَاللِّبَاس : مَا يَلْبَسُونَ مِنْ الثِّيَاب. { يُوَارِي سَوْآتكُمْ } يَقُول : يَسْتُر عَوْرَاتكُمْ عَنْ أَعْيُنكُمْ. وَكَنَّى بِالسَّوْآتِ عَنْ الْعَوْرَات , وَاحِدَتهَا سَوْأَة , وَهِيَ فَعْلَة مِنْ السُّوء , وَإِنَّمَا سُمِّيَتْ سَوْأَة لِأَنَّهُ يَسُوء صَاحِبهَا اِنْكِشَافهَا مِنْ جَسَده

What a disaster: Allah invented the underwear so it can cover al-siwa or the pubic area and el-3awra or the genital area so is that true our dear MS?

Oh and the feathers of the underwear? it was too embarrasing for Muslims as how can Muslim men and women be wearing underwear made of feathers?

So al-Tabari tells us that wa ikhtalafa ahl al-ta'weel! What a disaster the Muslim masorites cannot even agree on reading of this very bizarre word and this is what he says

الْقَوْل فِي تَأْوِيل قَوْله تَعَالَى : { وَرِيشًا } اِخْتَلَفَ الْقُرَّاء فِي قِرَاءَة ذَلِكَ , فَقَرَأَتْهُ عَامَّة قُرَّاء الْأَمْصَار : { وَرِيشًا } بِغَيْرِ أَلِف. وَذُكِرَ عَنْ زِرّ بْن حُبَيْش وَالْحَسَن الْبَصْرِيّ أَنَّهُمَا كَانَا يَقْرَآنِهِ : " وَرِيَاشًا ". 11220 - حَدَّثَنَا اِبْن وَكِيع , قَالَ : ثنا عَبْد الصَّمَد بْن عَبْد الْوَارِث , عَنْ أَبَان الْعَطَّار , قَالَ : حَدَّثَنَا عَاصِم , أَنَّ زِرّ بْن حُبَيْش قَرَأَهَا : " وَرِيَاشًا "

What a disaster Muslims do not even know what the Qur'an says and you our dear MS think that you know? Masha'allah

See what happens when you cannot read Arabic and defend an alien culture and alien language to you our dear MS who lives in Wahhabi land?
