    USMAN is a sanskrit word and a lot of arabic words are from Sanskrit . Usman means heat in sanskrit.

  13. on Sunday 16th of May 2021 11:32:49 PM

    Yes it is right .. i just researched. lots of islam stuff are borrowed from sanskrit and hebrew. they didnt have diacritical marks up to later .. wonder why it is called the last scripture when it is not even Godsent or perfect with many iterations along the way. Hope this forum doesnt ban the infidels.
