Ibn Kathir and al-Tabari tell us that the one who spoke to Muhammad in Q53 is Gabriel

Our dear GoD did not answer my questions:

1. Is it true that the Arabs despise Indian and Pakistani Muslims and call them names the likes of masakeen men el-hind?

2. Allah spoke to Moses right? Then this means that Allah has mouth and teeth and lips and vocal cords and trachea and he also speaks Hebrew right?

What a disaster Allah seems to be a Hebrew speaking man.

God spoke to Muhammad, even better He brought him nearest to Him in Sidrat Al-Muntaha سدرة المنتهى

How come al-Tabari tells us in surat al-nijm or Q53 that واختلف اهل التأويل which means that no one had a clue if this charcater was Gabriel or not and you think that you have the asnwer? Mash'allah

But it seems that Ibn Kathir has the answer and he tells us in regard to Q53:10

فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ مَا أَوْحَىٰ

And here is his tafseer of the identity of this character

مَعْنَاهُ فَأَوْحَى جِبْرِيلُ إِلَى عَبْد اللَّه مُحَمَّد مَا أَوْحَى أَوْ فَأَوْحَى اللَّه إِلَى عَبْده مُحَمَّد مَا أَوْحَى بِوَاسِطَةِ جِبْرِيل وَكِلَا الْمَعْنَيَيْنِ صَحِيح

Or and the meaning is Gabriel revealed to the slave of Allah Muhammad what was revealed or Allah revealed to his slave Muhammad what he revealed via Gabriel and both meanings are correct

This means that Ibn Kathir is saying that Gabriel spoke to Muhammad and it is not your Allah that spoke to him

It is your sources that tell us about this disaster

How come you did not know that?

Why the lies?

For the readers in Q53 it says that Muhammad did see someone (the Qur'an does not tell us who is that someone and the Ulama had to guess and guessing they did) that was revealing the Qur'an to him but this someone must be Gabriel

As for سدرة المنتهى no one has a clue and for sure not al-Tabari what is really سدرة المنتهى or where is its location and you think you have the answer? What a disaster

SoGod spoketo Muhammad directly in Heavens and in Arabic (The language of the people of Paradise)

Really? so where would i find in the Qur'an anything close to والله تكلم مع محمد في الجنة you will not find it and where would I find in the Qur'an anything close to اهل الجنة يتكلموا اللغة العربية فقط you will not find it. Why the lies you tell me

Oh and while waiting for your reply here is another Quranic disaster in Q2:218 it says

يرجون رحمت الله

Tsk....tsk...tsk poor Arabic so let me fix this poor Arabic

يرجون رحمة الله

What a disaster Allah cannot tell the difference between the letters ت and ة

For the readers this is another spelling mistake in the Qur'an and there is no doubt the Quranic spelling of the word means that it is the Syriac form of the word or ܪܚܡܬܐ or Rahmata and the clue is that there is no Ta Marbouta in Syriac and here is more information on the Syriac word ܪܚܡܬܐ or Rahmata and the Quranic word رحمت or Rahmat and the correct Arabic word رحمة or Rahma


And so much for the Quranic claim that it is written in pure Arabic
