Dear readers: Many non Arabic speaking Muslims the likes of our dear Fork read posts in tablighee web sites that tell us that Q30:3 really says that: Fi Adna al-Ard means: In the lowest land. Therefore, the Qur'an must be saying that the Persians must have been defeated in the area of the Dead Sea in today's Israel. And how can an illiterate Arab be aware of such fact unless the Qur'an is from Allah and Allah is the real God!

How do we refute this nonsense?

1. The timeline of the war between the Greeks and the Persians started in 614-616 AD and the Persians invaded the Levant, Mesopotamia, most of Asia Minor and Egypt. It was a very bloody war and in 622 AD the Persians lost the war following their defeats in battles in Upper Mesopotamia. And it was the beginning of the end and the Persians left Egypt in 627 AD and that was it.

Historians both Muslims and non Muslims do not mention any battles in the area of the Dead Sea, although it is very close to Jerusalem.

I can stop here and say that this is enough to refute this nonsense

So the question now is: Why do Tablighees and non Arabic speaking Muslims tell us the word Adna means lowest? My answer is because they do not know the Arabic language

1. The word ادنى in the Qur'an is: Alif (A) Dal (D) Nuun (N) and Alif Maksura (which is really the letter Alif)

2. So some ignorant tablighee found the word دنيء which means: Despicable/LOW life. Et voila Adna becomes Lowest. Well the word دنيء spells as: Dal (D) Nuun (N) Ya (Y) AND the Letter Hamza it is a very different word from a very different root

Very different word but if you are ignorant of the Arabic alphabet then it is very easy to read an alif maksura or ى (notice the absence of the two dots below the slope) as ي Ya (notice the two dots below the slope)

More? Notice that there is a Hamza ء and this is enough to refute the nonsense that Adna means Lowest

More disasters? Muslims that have no clue about what is in their books: Muhammad must have predicted the outcome of the Persian/Greek war. I will refute this nonsense in the next post.

So did you learn something our dear Fork? Let me guess: No

Do yourself a favor stop reading Tablighee nonsense it is ruining your brian
