How come Allah seems to have had no clue about Arabic numerals? Care to explain our dear "Robert"?

in response to reader comment: Our dear "Robert" who is lost in time and space: Hieratic (Egyptian) numerals predate the Arab numerals by thousands of years

Our dear "Robert" how come your Allah had no clue about the Arabic numeral system? Oh Muhammad? He must have used the Syriac numeral system after all he used to be a تاجر in Syria and there was no Arabic numerals back then.

Oh تاجر? ask your Mullah to translate it for you

Oh you don't believe me? Check سورة المدثر tsk tsk tsk let me fix this poor Arabic المتدثر now we fixed Allah's poor Arabic

Back to the verse it says: عليها تسعة عشر

This can be rendered as: Upon it (number) nineteen

And now all Muslim tablighees tell us: This is a miracle brother! (which is a big fat lie)

Not realizing that this is a disaster

How come your Allah (who should have known about so called Arabic numerals) not have it in his al-Lawh al-Mahfuz as عليها ١٩ or upon it 19!

Why is that our dear "Robert"? Let me help you because the Arabs plagiarized using numerals from the old civilizations of the Middle East and these numerals were introduced after the stabilization of the Qur'an in the 9th-10th century. More evidence? very early Quanic manuscripts lack numbers not just for verses but also for Suras! This is why the Arabs use the name of the Sura not the number of the Sura then they recite the verse without providing the number. More? al-Mufasereen had no clue if Q112:1 and Q112:2 are one or two verses and who is that our dear "Robert"?

Now repeat after me: Numbers and numerals do not drop from the sky! And stop watching the moron Zakir Naik and videos of the ignorant Ahmad Deedat (sp?)

See? I told you you will be embarrassing yourself
