Dear Nuray:

I noticed that you did not answer all my questions! Did you notice that too, stone kissing and all? You think that I did not notice? So I'm waiting for the rest of your answers. In the meantime we need to talk:

You wrote: "Yajtahid also means ijtihad"

No it does not. Hint: it is all in the grammar.

Then you wrote: "Yujahid also means participating in a jihad (holy war)".

Wrong again. Hint: do you really know what is the difference between a fi3l and what is a verbal noun? I do not think that you do.

You also wrote: "Mujtahid means those who can understand the language of Holy Qur'an completely."

If you ever utter this to even a child in let us say Cairo or Damascus, they will think that your command of Arabic is and I'm afarid to say: poor and incomplete.

It seems that google did not help you that much in this case. Now you google again and tell us what you find, and let me tell it is all in the Arabic _nahw_ (do you know what this word means?) that through these above statements you did prove to me that your command of Arabic is not the best. But I will give you the benefit of the doubt: could you provide us with references from Arabic ma'ajim that would support what you are saying?

You wrote that you are no Arab (gasp!!), and there is nothing wrong with that, but do not pretend that you know your Arabic because as I have proven so far that your command of Arabic is poor. I do not think you would even pass a high school Arabic exam.

And while we are at it stop inserting poor transliterations as in in the case of "as sabirin" or was it "as sabirun"? and do you know what is the difference between these two words? ( do you realize that you are copyediting your Alllah? and do you know the difference between a lam shamsiya and lam qamariya? If you would have known the difference you would have used the definite article instead of the foolish As) And because your Arabic is poor and your transliteration is just as poor, when you provide us with a translation of a verse from the Qur'an, provide us with your source, otherwise this is called: Plagiarism.

Then you wrote: "But I never claimed that I am an Arab."

And I never did ask you such a question, and I care less if you are or you are not. I just wanted to prove to you and to the readers that your Arabic language as well as your transliteration of Arabic is poor.

Then you wrote: "I don't know how you reached such a conclusion."

You do not seem to read with care Nuray. You go back and check what I wrote and nowhere you would find that I reached such a conclusion or any conclusion for this matter!!!

Now promise me in the future that you would not insert poor transliterations, and when you quote a verse from the Qur'an that you provide us readers with your the source of the translations.

Then you wrote: "All Muslims pray in Arabic. They listen to Qur'an in Arabic. This is the unity among Muslims.'

Or most likely that the unity of Muslims is that they listen and pray in a language that they do not understand, and this seems to include you Nuray.

Then you wrote: "Haven't you heard of google yet?"

Google wow, this is really wahy (so what is wahy Nuray?). Do you really think before you write?

Then you wrote: "We are at (sic) the internet age."

Wow you are just amazing, and I'm being very sarcastic here.
