Surah 108: 1 إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ

Indeed, we will become most excellent by blending in the abundance of virtues.

Syntactic Explanation:

This is a nominal sentence.  It has Inna  إِنَّ at the start.  This imparts certain changes in iraab إعراب of its subject and predicate.  Its subject gets نَصب or accusative case and predicate رَفع or nominative case. 


إِنَّا
It is a combination of particle إنَّ and first personal plural pronoun نا.  This first person plural noun is the subject of this sentence.
Any idea why first person plural is used and not first person singular?
And who is this first person plural? The reader?


Quote
أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ This whole part is the predicate of the sentence or  خَبر .

أَعْطَيْنَاكَ  This realistically is a combination of two words.  Traditionally it is claimed that it is a verb  أَعْطَي  a verb of IV form, there are two pronouns attached at the end.  A subject and an object pronoun, this is an absurd explanation, why would any language use same pronoun again which is نا or “we “ already used at the start of the sentence as subject?  This is ineloquent, grammatically wrong by any measure, if the narrator really meant to say “we gave you”.  The correct way of saying it would be إنَّا إعْطَيْكَ.  However, this is not the case in this verse. Additionally, no modern speaker of language uses this pattern to best my knowledge.

Please contemplate, ask questions, critique, correct or agree before proceeding further.

Regards,

ok, so what part of your translation is exactly "أَعْطَيْنَاكَ " and what part is "الْكَوْثَرَ" and how did you come to such translations?

tbh with you, it really surprises me that someone with such an unorthodox way of translating is still using schoolgrammar and dictionaries.
I think the quran is not based on some dictionary and schoolgrammar so I think whatever you do, you will always find contradictions and weird stuff which you can not solve with this approach of you.
What I am saying is that maybe it's a good idea to go all in, 50-50 will not work.

So I created a Discord server, it's a free vocal/chat server that let's you create an account for free (no phone numbers involved), add your friends that you can keep contact with them and mention them in your discussions by tagging them (they get notified in their phone/PC). It's also cross platform and you can get the app for free for both iOS/Android or a PC app or just use the browser to browse it as a Web app.

Discord is originaly for gamers, quiet sophisticated and might need sometime to get used to. Though it will do the job if you want to have a group chat (text or vocal), anonymously, for free, on either your pc or phone.

Not sure if I was invited, but looks nice!

49:11 O you who believe, let not any people ridicule other people, for
they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other
women,  for  they  may  be  better  than  they.  Nor  shall  you  mock 
one  another
,  or  call  each  other  names;  miserable  indeed  is  the 
name of wickedness after attaining faith. And anyone who does
not repent, then these are the transgressors.

Salam

Can you please quote me where I was mocking.

Brother, I wasn't addressing you only, but everyone who participated.
If you were also referring to my "FE-er" then you could tell me how I should call a random person who believes in a flat earth.

I don't know much regarding the shape of Earth in Quran, but why would the shape matter?
Is it worth to break God's laws because some believe earth is round or flat? If Quran doesn't mention it, then let's all agree that the Earth is flat and round; both sides will be happy.

If anyone has anything from Quran regarding the shape of Earth, please post them...

Salam
Lets all agree that gras is green, red and white because the quran doesn't mention it.

Matrimony / Re: The marriage certificate
« on: Today at 05:26:13 AM »
So how would a marriage be officiated by Quran alone standards. Like the actual ceremony.  It is an oath, so I believe something might be necessary along he lines of witnesses and a contract, but let me know what you guys think or what the Quran might say on oaths.
Hi,

I think a marriage is an agreement between 2 individuals with God as their witness, rest is formalities and a lot of culture.

Why not be amicale with someone who claims malaika are females?

Wrong or right, why must one be unfriendly to them?

If I understood him correctly then it's not such a big deal if you claim that a couple of malaikats are female, but it's totally not ok if you claim all are females.

Wakas is serious about music
Please by all means do not add those whack 4 bars to your works lol

Don't you have anything better to do with your spare time instead of digging in 9 years old threads in hope to find something to use for personal "attacks".

Would you be amicable with one who claims to be Muslimin who has read The Quran, but also claims that all Malaika are females?

This is to deep for me

The day a FE-er comes with a workable 2D world-map (distances between places accurate on scale) I will believe the earth is flat.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Re: How naïve are Muslims?
« on: Yesterday at 12:46:53 PM »
That might be your perception.  But rules given in explanation were not.  I made a mistake in meanings of wazaan. 
I have no idea what wazaan means.

Why rules are from other world?
Because they generate translations from another world.

Questions/Comments on the Quran / Re: Preservation of the Qur'an
« on: Yesterday at 12:39:59 PM »
Hello & Salam!


I am very confused and I'm not sure what to believe anymore.
My questions are:

1) Why are there differences between ancient Qur'an manuscripts and today's Qur'an?

Salaam and welcome to the forum  :handshake:

Humans make mistakes

2) How can we reconcile the Dead Sea Scrolls with the Qur'an?
Why is this important?

Quote
3) Is it possible that the Dead Sea Scrolls were corrupted somehow?
Yes that is possible

Quote
4) Where do we get the certainty that the Qur'an was never altered?
Digging up old qurans and compare them with what we got now is no proof at all.
