    In Surat Al-Baqarah, two different words are used for sexual relations; one is rafath, and the other is baashiroohunna. Why were two different words used for the same act in the same verse? Or do they have different meanings, like one reffering to foreplay and the other to the actual act? .. More

  • Dialect of Quraysh best of Arab dialects Date: 3-1-2018

    Was the dialect of Quraysh or of the Prophet, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam,the best and most beautiful Arabic dialect at that time?
