And the ignorance goes on and on and this is what our dear GoD who knows no Arabic is telling us that:

. ADNA means lowest point on Earth.

You are really and you must pardon me ignorant

And this time this is from al-Qurtubi's tafseer of the word adna and this is what he says about adna al-ard

يَعْنِي أَرْض الشَّام

It means the land of al-sham or today's Syria and Lebanon and Jordan (see al-Tabari's tafseer)

Nothing about the dead sea ...

I do not see anything about even close to يعني ارض البحر الميت or it means the land of the dead sea

See what happens when you pretend to know something when you are and you must pardon me ignorant?

Oh there is more then al-Qurtubi tells that the meaning of the word ادنى or adna

وَ " أَدْنَى " مَعْنَاهُ أَقْرَب

Now can you tell the readers what al-Qurtubi is saying about the meaning of the word adna?

Oh I forgot you cannot read Arabic right? Let me help you he is saying

wa adna means and the word adna means AQRAB or NEAR

Oh you want to be sure that al-Qurtubi did not make a mistake? well let us check the dictionary for the meaning of the word Aqrab

nearer اقرب

And here is the link and it is Arabic English for ignorant wannabe Arabs like you


I do not see anything about your bogus claim that the word has anything to to with lowest

So you tell me was al-Qurtubi wrong or was he an islamophobe?

You know what? I'm not done with you

Oh do not go away our dear GoD the wannabe Arab because we kuffar need to expose your likes for what you are...
