How did I miss this little gem from our dear Simha who ran away when I provided him with Islamic sources that tell us that the word Allah is a loan word from Syriac

The first part of your post is probably correct -


about Muhammad having had a different name before.

Oh is this Quthm Bin Abd Allat? Or is it Abul Qasim you tell me

Now, Muhammad itself is, of course, Arabic.

Really? let me help you your Arab masters have realized long time ago that a مصدر ميمي or a masdar with an M prefix is usually not Arabic but Syriac unless it is a مفعول and if your so called prophet was indeed the praiseworthy then in Arabic it would be محمود and not محمد

I'm not the one who is saying that it is your Muslim grammarians that said that

The word is amply attested in Arabic and even in old inscriptions from long before the Qur'an.

Really? well "amply attested"? Are you for real? Can you provide us kuffar with references where we can find the Name Muhammad in pre-Islamic Arabic language inscriptions? Hint: you will not find it

Why the delusions and why do you not do your own research before posting?

What some have claimed is,

Who are the "some? Let me guess your Mullah right?

that MHMD be a rendering of Syriac MSHBH

And yes the word ܡܫܒܚ means praise and commend but so what?

And here is the word ܡܗܡܕ and here is the meaning of the word


What a disaster Muhammad is not an Arabic word

but that is another matter altogether. Syriac doesn't employ the root H.-M-D, so it cannot be Syriac.

Really? Let us see what Arabic Translators International Tell us just paste the link in google search engine et voila


Well let me help you they tell us that there is indeed a Syriac as well as Hebrew root H-M-D and in Syriac here is the word ܚܡܕ or HMD and in Hebrew חמד or HMD and in both languages the word mean Love and Desire not in Arabic and why is that our dear Simha? and how come you did not know? Could it because you are and you must pardon me ignorant?

Moreover, your statement about muhammad - mahmud is, of course, quite incorrect.

Really? why? Well the following would not be accepted as evidence

1. My Mullah told me so

2. I Simha say so

3. Zakir Naik says so

4. The ignorant Ahmad Deedat said so

Now it is your chance to either shine or sink

Derivatives of both the 1. and 2. stem are possible.

I really feel sorry for you
