For the readers as this would be beyond our dear GoD and his poor education I stated that the Qur'an is a confused, confusing book that does not make sense most of the time and it has its share of mistakes in grammar and spelling of perfect Arabic words and has its share of foreign words and words that have no meaning

And Muslims have no idea what the Qur'an really says and it is all guessing and I will give you an example about strange words in the Qur'an that have no meaning

The word عسعس in Q81:17 or

واليل اذا عسعس

Or the night when (it) 3as3as

The disaster here is there is no Arabic word called 3as3as

No one has a clue not back then or now about how to read this very strange word or what it means and it has no root and it does not sound like a Syriac word and the end result is the ulama EDITED it by adding short vowels and now it is

عَسْعَسَ

Or 3as3asa

And therefore the word is really عَسْعَس or 3as3as and here is what Ibn Kathir and al-Tabari and al-Qurtubi al-Jalalayan tell us about this disaster

Now Ibn Kathir tells us that it means the stars in the night sky and al-Jalalayn tell us that it means the darkness of night or darkness gone fast! What a disaster

Then al-Qurtubi is not sure but he believes that it has something to do with darkness or may be gone fast or may with clouds and only Allahu a3lam

Then al-Tabari is honest enough to tell us اختلف اهل التأويل or the masorites (read this as ulama that wrote the Quranic exegesis and when ever he used such term he was making it very clear that no one has a clue but this did not stop the ulama from guessing) and that it could mean gone fast or may be the time before sun rise and much more guesses

What a disaster

And here is the exegesis of the word from the above sources

http://www.alro7.net/ayaq.php?sourid=81&aya=17

So you see our dear GoD whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam it is not me who is saying that there are words in the Qur'an that have no meaning and no one has a clue how to read them but it is your ulama and Sheikh al-Azhar and if you do not like what they are saying then destroy your Islamic literary sources and good riddance (and this would not be something new after all Uthman was the first one to destroy Islamic sources when he did burn copies of the Qur;an right our dear GoD?)
