Project: 'Root List'

Peace.

I want to get into this project right now, but I don't have access to a lexicon. Which lexicon would you recommend I buy, so that I can participate in this project?

I have worked out that you don't really need to learn Arabic to be able to hold a discussion (salat  :wink: ) with confidence, all you need is some kind of knowledge of sentence structure and access to a lexicon. Since this project is not yet complete, I would like to offer my time to help get this complete so that many more brothers and sisters can have a decent opportunity to discuss things on free minds using the specific Arabic involved. I am very grateful to those who began this project for coming up with such a good idea. God willing, I will attempt to contribute as much as I can.

I tried to download release 3, but the zip file seems to be corrupt, I have tried several times to the same result. Is there something wrong with the zip file or my computer? Release 2 works, so it is likely that the zip file for release 3 is corrupt. Please look into it. Thanks.

peace brother Natu,

Well, if you do not read Arabic, it looks like Lane's Lexicon is your best bet, as its in English. The CD Rom is pretty cheap, especially with the current exchange rate ($150~?85). I dont mind helping out with cost, if its a problem.

I know brother Aaron downloaded PRLr3.zip about 8 days ago, he had no problems. I tried it just now and it worked for me. If no-one else comes forth with a problem, its likely its your PC. How about trying other zip programs?

PM me with any problems.

Salam  Wakas

Is the root word ?J N B? (junub) on verse 4:43 the same as verse 28:11?

Regards

peace,

Jiim-Nun-Ba taken from openburhan
http://www.irreduciblefifth.force9.co.uk/burhan/b.x.440.htm

Yes, JuNuB (noun masculine) occurs in 4:36, 4:43, 5:6, 28:11. The following additional notes are taken from CofQ: adjective - defiled, (with preposition 'an') - from afar.

peace be upon you all,

I am pleased to announce, PRL will go live online by late summer (and will be updated more frequently), unless The God wills otherwise.
