    It actually doesn't matter. If there's an "ad" in the middle and an "fi" on the end, everyone knows who we're talking about.

    There is no standard guide for translating Arabic words so when you look at an Arabic word written in English, it's actually not a translation, but a transliteration which is only a representation of how the Arabic word would sound if it was written in the Latin alphabet. Sounds can be interpreted different ways which is why you get so many different variations on the spelling of his name.

    Same thing with the Qur’an.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
