    Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday approved a summary prohibiting the English translation of Islamic terms, which means that the word “masjid” cannot be substituted with the English word “mosque”.

    Sacred Arabic names and words like Allah, masjid, sala’at and Rasool are now forbidden to be translated in English as God, mosque, prayer and prophet, respectively, as per the summary approved by the Prime Minister. Religious scholars have appreciated the government’s move and stressed the need to implement the decision.

    Prominent cleric Mufti Naeem said that the decision is commendable but it should be enforced in letter and spirit. He lauded the Prime Minister for taking the decision in the holy month of Ramzan.

    Mufti Muneebur Rehman also lauded the move, saying some religious terms and names are best described in Arabic and they couldn’t be translated in English.

    The word Mosque (from mosquitoes) has a derogatory meaning and used to describe Muslims by Spaniards when they went to the Masjid!

    Edit: I was hoping you would research before discounting it. I don't like to spoon feed people, however here is the link:

    not sure if serious or not :undecided:

    The word "mosquito" (formed by mosca and diminutive ito) is Spanish for "little fly"


    are you a islamist shill?

    Hi,

    That is a surprising news----. If it s true then this moron has has taken another step in the direction of his mentor Zia ul Haq----what a moron.

    Now can these words be translated to any other language----.

    I looked through the link you pasted on ''Moors'', it is what the Crusaders used to call us. We never called ourselves ''Moors''.
