My dear phonetics let us talk about your poor Arabic

you wrote:

>again sunnah (not sunna)

Bogus. And let me help you: there is neither a letter heh or even a letter hah at the end of the word sunna. And do you really know what is really transliteration? And do you really know what is really a teh marbouta? I doubt it very much.

The word is sunna (see Hans Wehr Dictionary page 433B) is written as

1. Seen with a damma and this is transliterated as: SU

2. Nuun with a shadda is transliterated as: NN

3. Teh marbouta which would be vocalized (the teh marbouta vocalized as "at" as is sunnat al-Nabi) here as an alif sound and transliterated as: A

et voila we have SUNNA and not your bogus sunnah!


Bogus again. The word is ustaz.

>maut and ziina (matn isnad?)

No I'm not asking you about "death" and "fornication" I guess with so much death in the cult of death called Islam and so much fornication with the 72 virgins and the ghulman in your Allah's little paradise the word zinna is on your mind. So much for the muslim mind!

Oh and you have no clue what "al-matn wa al-isnad" really mean? I see.

>ya ayyuhalladziina

Two words: Bogus Arabic by a wannabe Arab!


Bogus Arabic by a wannabe Arab. You will be even confusing your Arabic Allah. The Arabic greeting is tranasliterated as: al-sallam 3alikum and vocalaized as: as-sallamu 3alaikum.

>uasing the "Al-" is haram in today's Arabic

Says who? you? you know no Arabic and you live in your little fantasy world.

I have here infront of me the 1923 copy of the Cairo edition of the Qur'an and it says on the cover:

al-Qur'an al-Kareem! (this can be vocalized in modern Egyptian Arabic as: el-Qur'an el-Kereem so is the word el also haram in your little fantasy world?)

So go and tell the shiuukh at al-Azhar (oh I forgot that the word al is haram!) that the Arabic definite article "al" is Haram. They will think that you are ignorant and funny our dear phonetics. So are you ignorant and funny our dear phonetics?

So much for wannabe Arabs.
