Instead of writing a whole lot, I am explaining in my own words the origin of the Arabic scripture. As it turns out, the Arabs living in Mekka and Medina could choose between two distinct lettering systems for Arabic. A highly deficient and moronic system derived from Aramaic and a fairly complete and beautiful scripture from Arabia felix, that is Jemen. Although Jemen is much closer to Mekka and Medina, they chose the far inferior letters, in which the quran was originally written. Why? Because the quran was not written in Mekka or Medina. It was written by Arabs who had close contact with Arameans, Arabs from Iraq, Iran or Syria.
