    Correct, David spoke clear King James English with a British accent.

    For the sarcastically impaired the following is said in jest

    You never know. Maybe David DID speak in Arabic, but the nefarious Jews changed it to Hebrew when they corrupted the text.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Wait.. can we get back to the idea that Muslims think Allah can only answer prayers in Arabic? Isn't God omniscient? That's a rather finite view of the ultimate Being! Mere mortals can learn more than one language!
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Christianity is about what Christ did for us. Islam is about what Muslims can do for Allah.

    Christ died for His followers - Allah wants his followers to die for him.

    God can hear us in any language - Allah wants us to learn Arabic for him.

    I also heard that Allah can't see muslims when they are not in the middle east so they can do whatever they want like whore and drink and sin.

    Not sure if that is true or just a rumor someone told me.

    I can find pretty good substantiation for Arabic to be necessary for prayers to Allah, but I don't find anything about him not seeing Muslims outside the Middle East. In fact, it appears that Allah is claimed to be both omnipotent and omniscient.

    The explanation for why it's necessary to pray in Arabic reminds me a lot of the 'explanations' on FairMormon.org.
