According to my dictionary, the al–ommiyaa referenced above can mean a variety of things: “My mother; Belonging to mother; Unlettered; Arab; Who have no revealed Scripture of his own.”

The verse actually closer to the last part of that explanation:

The verse was discussing some Ummis who had no revealed scripture of their own. It does not mean they were unlettered.

You have got it right and the second part of your quote is correct, Pazuzu.

For a person his mother Umm becomes Ummi for that person. Likewise Ain is eye and my daughter becomes Aini for me.

The Arabs had never received any Scripture from God before. Thus they were the Ummis, while Jews were not Ummis, since they had the Scriptures for a thousand over years. This Ummi has nothing to do with my mother, Ummi!

Hi BMZ

It seems you agree that the quran does not state that muhammad was illiterate. Have I got this right?

Cheers

Hi Tvebak,

No, I have not agreed. Yes, Qur'aan does state clearly that Muhammad could neither read nor write. Please refer to Ahmed's post on page 1 about 29:48 which is self-explanatory. It is just that Baal has a fear and cannot break the chains of his ignorance. lol!  Very Happy

Cheers & Good night

Hi BMZ

I feel I already gave a reasonable answer to that verse, also on page 1.

Cheers.
