Our dear Nasr who lives among kuffar Hindus Buddhists Christians and Chinese and without them Malaysia would be a basket case not unlike Pakistan

So what do you do for living our dear Nasr? Oh read the Qur'an and nothing more.

I really feel sorry for you

Its good that you wish to study about signs from the Creator

Really? Is this Allah? Then prove to us that he is the creator as in hard and solid evidence and the following will not be accepted as evidence: Bacasue the Qur'an says so!

mentioned in His revelations being the final covenant for mankind.

Not true the Qur'an makes it very clear that Islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only so who was the rasul that was sent to your people in Malaysia because he is not Abul Qasim oh would you like to know more?

I posed the following questions for our dear Nasr the lost tablighee

1. Is it true that the Qur'an says that the earth is flat in Qur'an 79:30? So is the earth flat our dear Nasr? Or was al-Tabari an Islamophobe or may be he was ignorant because this is what he says in his tafseer of the Quranic disaster of 79:30!

2. Is it true that as per al-Tabari's exegesis Allah was really confused about the sequence of his own creation and this is why al-Tabari tells us that the word بعد should be مع? What a disaster Allah cannot tell the difference so was al-Tabari a liar or was he an Islamophobe enlighten us our dear Nasr who is a lost tablighee!

And this is his answer so I tell the readers read and laugh

Answer to (1),(2)
Read http://beta.quran.com/79/30 for more translations of Quran 79:30.

I can read the Qur'an is Arabic something that you cannot do so do me a favor I do not use translations and I do not use the bogus Ahadith deal?

There are many by scholars based on how they interpret the verses, as for Tafsir Tabari

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic it is Tafseer al-Tabari! See? you need to know Arabic

written in 10th century.

Wrong it is the 9th century CE

It is not that you are ill informed you do not even do your research before posting your and you must pardon me drivel

If he interpreted the earth as flat,

Wrong al-Tabari tells us what Allah is saying and the one to be blamed is your so called Allah

that means the knowledge about earth in that era was still about earth being flat. Only in late centuries ago, earth is accepted as sphere.

Wrong again it is your Allah who did not know that the earth is not flat and I must conclude that your are saying that al-Tabari was ignorant and his tafseer is not trustworthy you think that I should tell your Saudi masters that you are saying that their idol al-Tabari was ignorant and not trustworthy? What do you think would happen to you? You will get a fatwa of takfeer?

But let us see what Qur'an 79:30 says

So let us concentrate on this little gem

وَالْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ دَحَاهَا ﴿٣٠

(79:30) And the earth after that he made it flat

What a disaster Allah is saying that the earth is flat and all al-Tabari did was to tell us that the earth is flat

Oh al-Qurtubi? He tells us that

اي بسطها

Or he made it flat oh you do not believe me? Here in Arabic what al-Qurtubi wrote if you can read Arabic which I doubt very much right Mr wannabe Arab?


So was al-Qurtubi ignorant and not trustworthy too?

Oh Ibn Kathir says the same


So was Ibn Kathir also ignorant and not trustworthy?

The ignorant is he who says that the earth if flat and put it in writing

What a disaster and we have three types of mistakes in this little gem and let me repeat them one more time

1. Mistakes in spelling of perfecr Arabic words as in spelling of the word دحها had to be edited by the ulama and it is now دحاها

And if we kuffar read your aya in Arabic we can find that you are using the EDITED دحاها and not Allah's word دحها do you know whatt his means ya ayuha al-ghabi al-kabeer? It means that you are EDITING Allah's little book

What a disaster the Qur'an is a corrupted book

2. Mistakes in chronology as was pointed out by al-Tabari, oh I forgot that our dear Nasr the wannabe Arab is saying that al-Tabari is ignorant, but if you can read it and that بعد should have been مع and what a disaster Allah does not seem to be aware of the chronology his own creation

3. The word دحها ooops let me fix this poor Arabic دحاها means HE MADE IT FLAT so is the earth flat our dear Nasr?

Oh you do not believe me here is the dictionary meaning of the word دحاها from no other than Lisan al-Arab and Ibn Manzur makes it very clear that

دحا الله الارض: بسطها ومدها

Oh Allah DAHA the earth means he made it flat and streched it

It is as clear as it can get that the one who is saying that the earth is flat is Allah! al-Tabari and al-Qurtubi and Ibn Kathir were only telling us what Allah was saying

And here is the word Dahaha in Lisan al-Arab


Now you tell us why did your ancestors convert to Islam? Was it the sword as per Q9:5 or ayat al-sayf or was it because they were BRIBED in-order to convert to Islam as per Q9:60? so which one is it?

And if your Allah would have said that

والارض مع ذلك جعلها كروية

Or The earth with this (creation) he made it like a ball (round)

Then your Allah would have been right but he was in the habit of reading Ptolemy what can I tell you

Leave Islam and get a real job and stop being a victim of the Arabs and their cultural imperialism

Oh there will be more
