Again you really do not know what you are talking about because you do not know Arabic and in this case Syriac

The word Hanif is a loan word from Syriac and the word HNPE (notice that the p becomes f in Arabic) and do you know what the Syriac word HNPE really means? It means pagan! So congratulations our dear Shakeel but Muhammad was indeed a pagan!

Now it is very clear that the 3Ulama and the Muslim masorites in the 3rd century of Islam had no clue what this opaque revelation the Qur'ab that is was saying and the Arabic word HNF is a case in point.

Now your excuse is that we really do not understand what you are really saying. Bogus again. Could it be that you are discovering that you are debating a subject that is far above your level of education? You cannot debate islam without knowing Arabic and Syriac and Hebrew and Greek. Urdu? No you do not need it.
