Then you wrote: "The holy Quran has since thrown a challenge to everyone that can point to fault in it"

The Qur'an is full of mistakes in grammar, syntax and spelling. Get over it And how can your defend this allegation when you cannot read, write or vocalize Arabic? So much for Arabian imperialism.

The most celebrated mistake ni the Qur'an, which was even examined by Suyuti in his Itiqan is: "ina hadhan la sahiran." This is very poor Arabic grammar. So do I win, albeit with the help of Suyuti, of your Allah's little and lame challenge?

And early on Muslims realized that there were serious grammatical mistakes in the Qur'an, and what was the answer? Generate fake ahadith and link it to the likes of 'Ai'sha as in her quoted as saying: "hadha 'amal al-kuttab 'akhta'oo fi al-kitab" ( and see I'm using the primary language of the quote so no one can say that I'm misreading it) This would translate as: "this is the make (the mistakes) of the scribes thay (are the ones) who made the mistakes in the book (the Qur'an." (see QS page 223)

Oh I forgot that 'Uthman the source of the 'Uthmanic recenscion after discovering the mistakes in the Qur'an was quoted as saying: "la tooghayiroha fa inna al-'Arab satughayiruha." or "do not change it (the mistakes in the Qur'an) because the Arabs will change it (the mistakes that is). (ibid)

So much for the perfect Qur'an the kitab mubeen bi Arabi faseeh!!!

For readers another mistakes in the grammar of the Qur'an:

1. Q22:5: Tiflan should be atfalan.

2. Q20:69: innama sana'uuo should be 'ina sanii'hum. (see QS page 220)

If you need more examples just let me know.

As for foreign words in the Qur'an: your explanation is lame. Your Allah claims that the Qur'an is written in Arabi faseeh period. He does not say anything about foreign in the Qur'an!!! The words Ruum, Tur, Sarat, ababeel, sijeel, kalala, Ilaf are for sure not Arabi faseeh which means that the calim by your Allah cannot be believed.

If you find a mistake in my Arabic feel free to correct me. I can always learn! You?...

I will disregard your final vitriolic remark, but you must realize that you are defending a religion that brutalized your ancestors. Shame.
