in response to reader comment: query or two to dhimmi no more reg. soorat al isra'

I wonder why do Muslims post under non Muslim names right our dear SF?

(i) Is there a difference in meaning between 'subhaan' with your added alif above the 'ha' and the 'subhaan' in the Koran

Ask a silly question and you will get a silly answer

1. If a grade 6 child learning Arabic spells the word word سبحان as we have the spelling as in the Quranic rasm as سبحن he will flunk and you know what? the first version is the correct classical Arabic the language of the Qur'an as we are told

2. Is it ان هذان لاساحران as you will find it in the Qur'an or is it ان هذين لاساحران the correct Arabic but with your flawed logic they have the same meaning and most Arabs would have no clue but is it not us kuffar that decide what is CA is all about it al-Mufasereen

3. This is clear evidence that CA is not Quranic Arabic and it is a derivative of Quranic Arabic did you get this one?

which has alif khanjariyya above the 'ha'?

Wrong again the Quranic rasm does not have the tablighee اليف خنجرية or what the Arabs call اليف قصيرة in actual fact it is an اليف that did not exist in the Quranic rasm how come you did know that?

Oh you do not believe me? Here compare the word سبحن edited by adding an alif (call it what you want to call it)

http://quran.com/17

Compare this with the Saudi copy of the Qur'an where the word becomes سبحان and notice that al-Tabari's tafseer spells the word as سبحان and no mention of an alif qasira and why is that? Let me help you because al-Tabari realized that this is an embarrassing mistake

So next time you tell us not a single word in the Qur'an has been changed think of Subhan

Oh there will be more
