Fixing our dear Ajda poor Arabic: Salaam Alaikum (sic) it is السلام عليكم

in response to reader comment: Salaam Alaikum!

Dear Readers, notice that Ajda tries to impress the readers by transliterating an Arabic language expression and in this case "Salaam Alaikum" which is poor Arabic grammar and poor transliteration. I wonder why!

> It is the women who teaches the children she is the first contact with the children who go out in the world as Muslim men and women representing our religion our culture and our values.

Our dear Ajda is clearly not an Arab (and nothing is wrong with that) and has clearly no clue about the Arabic language or the culture of the Arabs. He/She does not realize that Muslim Arabs have much more in common (culture and language) with non Muslims living in the Arab world than with Indian and Pakistani Muslims like her/him. I hate to tell you our dear Ajda you have much more in common with the culture of the rest of non Muslim India than you have with the Arab culture. Did you get this?

>So Muslim men must be very very careful with their women, with whom they take as their wives.

So let me see, and Muslim men can marry three more wives, and allow their women as in the case of the Bohra Muslims of India, to be subjected to FGM, and they are OK with child marriages, and with beating women, and forcing their wives to have sex even if they do not feel like it, and in a court of law the testimony of a woman is not equal to the testimony of a man, and calling a woman عورة and forcing women to ware not what they like to ware but what dirty old men tell them to ware. So much for "Muslim men are very very careful with their women."

Why do you not tell the truth?

Last, here is your Arabic language lesson for today: Ma'aasalaama (sic) is bogus transliteration of مع السلامة or Ma'a al-Salama.

Do your self and us a favor and stick to Urdu

PS: Our dear Ajda are you aware that the Qur'an says that Islam is the religion of the Arabs only?
