Ummah

The variations of the word "mother" across the world: [Q30:22]
umm. ima. aem. emak. umma. amma. mae. me. mam. mama. mummy
mata. mutter. mother. madar. madre. mère. mitéra. maty. maci. matka. matushka

For "mother", is it possible that it starts with "umm أم אֵם". & then it varies into "umma, amma, mama, mummy". Then the "ma" adds with the "ta" & varies into another set "mutter, mother, madre, mère".

We could do that with father as well. Does it starts with "ab أب אב". & then it varies into "abah, abu, abeoji, baba, papa". Then the "pa" adds with the "ta" & varies into another set "pater, pedar, padre, father"... Hmmm... ماشاء الله و الله أعلم

The universe is "cakerawala" in Malay. It roots from the word "cakera (disc)" or the sanskrit "चक्र (wheel)", which can describes its circular motions.

Isn't it amazing - it has words from the East to the West.

Still, I do feel the Malay language is under appreciated as people seem to prefer english, as if the malay language is less civilized? But it's actually rich in vocabulary - it may even explain human migration by the language transfer. ماشاء الله
Anyway. May I share that, it's amazing that sometimes I can understand foreign languages simply bcoz it's in the Malay language. Seriously. E.g:

I saw Khawateer Shaab. & the arab guy was teaching the white guy how to say "Qumrah (قمرة)" - the origin of the word "camera" (as in camera obscura, which means "darkened chamber/room"). But it's a thick "Q" that comes deep from the throat, ha ha.

Next time, the white guy can teach the arab how to write "Pepsi". It's not "Bibsi"!
You can imagine what iPad is...

& yes, malays have that word -"kamar (room)".
It's like the hindi "kamara कमरा (room)", hebrew "kimur קמור (vault)".
I feel I'm going to be Mr Portokalos...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
ربنا واجعلنا مسلمين لك ومن ذريتنا أمة مسلمة لك وأرنا مناسكنا وتب علينا إنك أنت التواب الرحيم
Our Lord, and make us Muslims (in submission) to You, and from our descendants a Muslim nation (in submission) to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
[Quran 2:128]

This is the prayer of Prophet Abraham (PBUH) when he built the Holy Kaaba. He was praying for guidance & direction on how to worship Allah SWT. & he was praying for it to be shown, evident (وأرنا مناسكنا : and show us our rites). الحمد لله

In hebrew, "Torah" (תורה) roots from the word "yareh" (ירה). It's "yara" in arabic - both "yara" (يرى : see) & "arina" (أرنا : show us) root from the same word "ra'a" (رأي : see, evident). So, is the Torah like light entering the qumrah - that's how we see. "Yareh" is also used in archery, it seems like the Jerusalem Temple directing towards the Kaaba like an archer. [The End] ماشاء الله (◠oo◠)

In malay "rah" (רה) is like "arah" (direction), "arahan" (commandment).
