Nabeel gave us some interesting information, such as the Mihna – المحنه – the Muslim “Inquisition”. I recognize that word, because we have it in Farsi, محنت , meaning “trial”, “testing”, even “suffering”. (Farsi does not have the Arabic definite article “The” ال ; and the last letter becomes a t ت in Farsi, as in Arabic it is pronounced “t” when connected to another word and has two dots over the ؛h” ه, at the end.
The Controversy over whether the Qur’an is created or eternal is a very interesting issue in Islamic history and theology. How could God be without His word in eternity past? The concept of the logos / λογος in John 1:1 and 1:14 = “mind that expresses itself in words”, shows that God has always existed with His word / mind into eternity past.
Background on the Mu’tazili school of Islamic theology. “The adherents of the Mu`tazili school are best known for their denying the status of the Qur’an as uncreated and co-eternal with God.”
Also interesting was the phrase, “Bela Kaif” بلاکیف = “without knowing how”.
I will comment, Lord willing on more of this later and do a fuller article with the video.
