in response to reader comment: Bogus one more time

Hello dhimmi,

I am not writing Arabic script here. I am writing here English alphabet.

As you say, Bashar means mankind, I agree. You say, Bashar means human, I agree, but when you say, Bashar means humanity, I disagree.

Also Naas means people in general; it does not mean people of particular place like Arabia.

If Quran was for Arabs, it will use the term Ahl-ul-Arab rather than saying Al-Naas.
