Why do you keep mistaking me for someone else?

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: Guiding the Perplexed our dear Matta aka Matthew al-Tablighee and the trouble with Tablighees and Ta Marbouta

I never said that al-maktaba should be al-maktabah, someone else said it and you are doing nothing but ranting on me for the mistake of someone else.

In the page you sent me, Al-Azhar is talking about how a novel had accusations on Umar Ibn Al-Khattab and Ibn Abbas of how they were ignorant when it came to Qur'anic Arabic. But he said that the sheer presence and reputation of these two figures can refute the novel.

He also talks about how Qur'an has a lot of strange words that were actually from other languages but became Arabic and even got included in the Qur'an as they were words used so often, they come to be known as Arabic.

I would tell you again, that it is Tablighi, and not tablighee.

And everything I explained in this message about the page you sent me won't be present and won't be understood well if you use a translator; so yeah.
