Yes, I can see one obvious grammar error in the following ... sura 3.45

http://www.islamicity.com/mosque/ara..._9/3_45-48.htm

Here, let me elaborate for the Arabic speaking people

Iz kalati lmala2ikatou ya maryamou inna llaha youbasshirouki bikalimatin minhou smouhou lmasee7ou 3eesa bnou maryama wajeehan fee ddonya wal2akhirati wa mina lmoukarrabeena

Notice the bolded part

hou is erroneously a masculine pronoun when it should be feminine since it's referring to "kalima" which is feminine not masculine.

Oh, and no cheap replies, like "the Quran can never have grammar mistakes" because, unlike you, I don't assume that the Quran is perfect and that the Quran is exactly the same as the original. So spare me such replies, and just refute my point.

It is clearly a grammar mistake (probably a copyist error). Do you agree or not?

nor would i (personally) wish for anyone to 'assume' it is perfect, i would advise trying a scientific approach and acting upon its message.......

if you do not wish to believe its authenticity, then no amount of refutation will suffice.

Yes, it will suffice ... just simply explain why it's not a grammar error

Kalima is a feminine term, which means "word" in Arabic.

Note: This could be just a copyist error, and not an error in the original.

 

But, either way, I am open to all corrections ... just as long as they are corrections.

Salaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatuhu,

No.  You're just wrong.  Do you like Bush too?  Why do you go around wasting your time slinging false accusations like this?  Are you like a two year old who thinks he knows everything when he doesn't? 

The grammar is correct.  The "Ismoohoo" refers to Prophet Issa, may Allah Listen to him, his name, and he are masculine.

How silly of you to use something that you are completely wrong in to attack Islaam.  You need to take up crochet and send socks to earthquake victims and leave the grammar to experts, or even people as simple as me who know that your attack is foolish.

 

Al-Hamdulillah (From a Married Muslimah) La Howla Wa La Quwata Illa BiLLah - There is no Effort or Power except with Allah's Will.
