  • @Remenkimi, well there's nothing concrete about this, and I just threw my two pence worth.. I still don't think it's hundred gods or ask of God although I agree with you that names are not just based on religious words.. lastly shannowfi is a compou…
  • Unfortunately I cannot use the unicode text, so I will try to be clear, and if I am not please let me know. It makes perfect sense for shanouda to be "son of God", or "belongs to God". None of the other six meanings of "sha" would fit (except maybe …
  • @Remenkimi, you said "We are not hear to pass microphones around for solo performances and esthetics. We are here to sing to God for forgiveness - not to amuse people - and this is the narrow road that leads to life." Fantastic, very well said.. tha…
  • Dear @icowrich, I believe you are mistaken, howa in Arabic or in the qur'an refers to the pronoun he and isn't related near or far to Jehovah. Unless you give me an example that I am not aware of.. @mabsoota, first time I notice the comment you made…
  • @Remenkimi, extremely and exquisitely said.. bravo.. oujai khan ebshois
  • @minatasgeel, what are you saying? I don't expect that from you dear @minatasgeel.. I believe you know what the definition of dogma is. Also remember that Christ has done innumerable things, if all were written St John believed that the books of the…
  • @qawe, I'm sorry I don't understand why you used the present perfect and past tenses talking about the nativity liturgy. It's happening in the future.. or because some people may read this after a while? oujai khan ebshois
  • Matins is baker which is the morning counterpart to vespers. I don't think it's wise to skip beginmisi as it is the signature hymn for the feast.. please check the lyrics.. literally 45 seconds and it's much nicer than abartanos.. indeed it's a bit…
  • @minatasgeel, ok first things first, it's going to be a piece of cake to do that research.. I'm glad you assigned it to me but these days I'm only logging on and off interruptedly, so give me another week or so. But quickly scrolling through the Cop…
  • @minatasgeel, Thank you for your detailed reply and educating me too, I'm not being sarcastic.. but why does it have to be 2013, or 14 for the change to take effect.. what are the readings on any other prophet's departure commemoration? What are tho…
  • I find the argument the holy synod is absurd doesn't make sense.. if many people come to the liturgy on these special days it's a bigger reason to keep the readings the same for a whole host of reasons.. and who divides the word of God into more pal…
  • Fixed. Thank you @minatasgeel.. Happy New year.. nofri romba emwari.. oujai khan ebshois
  • http://tasbeha.org/hymn_library/view/1497 I wonder where did the tune come from. The first paragraph is the fast way for most hymns like Pi-epnevma and Oran enshosho. Anyone recognizes this way for the second paragraph? i hear a lot of hazzat from h…
  • Dear @qawe, please explain more the terms liturgies vs extra-liturgical.. I'd like to understand that better please.. oujai khan ebshois
  • Dear @Tobit, I cannot agree more.. God bless us all and help us all, all the time oujai khan ebshois
  • Dear @Tobit, I completely agree with you and your position on this.. you helped to remind me personally of the need to be extra careful until the day of my judgment.. however let's not forget that some members wrote from experience and these kind of…
  • Ja ebmawi and Di shoria? Why is there always confusion about this? Some people advise it's bai ba biahow and tai shoria instead.. why is there this discrepancy? oujai khan ebshois
  • Dear @justpraybro, first of all let me commend you on mustering up your courage to write such an important and sensitive issue in your life on this forum.. that to me proves you live more as Americanized than Egyptian. Egyptians are rubbish to talk …
  • @FaithfullServant1, The thing to say about hymns is that excepting a few they all contain passages from the Holy Bible.. indeed in tasbeha there are whole hymns dedicated to chapters from the Holy Bible and in the liturgy too. This is not common wi…
  • @minafayik and @minatasgeel, how is this pronounced evshe then? Or even efshe! Here the shei is in An originally Coptic word so it's pronounced as 'k'.. seriously those Arabic melodies did so much damage to the Coptic orthodox church but not the Ara…
  • @minatasgeel very surprised Of your stance.. you've always been the one telling me to search and research.. cannot understand how this destroys the unity and the spirit of unison. Did somebody complain to you of me? oujai khan ebshois
  • @minatasgeel, great responses Mina thank you very much. Cantor Towfik's reasoning is not perfect because we have in tasbeha dehey enhikanos, hos arof, and big hoses, to name a few in addition to the vast number in the liturgy that one verse is chant…
  • @Amoussa01, That's what I mean.. oujai khan ebshois
  • Cleanse sometimes pronounced as clean-z oujai khan ebshois
  • But take care blessed should be pronounced as bless-id when it's An adjective rather than a participle.. people make the opposite mistake.. oujai
  • @minasoliman and @Kahan, minasoliman does certainly have a tone of a know-it-all and strongly sticks up for what he believes, which is certainly commendable, but I don't think in that particular case he came across as or even sounded as though he wa…
  • @TITL, oh those Americans! Oops.. are you too? Sorry.. :D oujai
  • Hasten: sometimes said haste-n, t is silent Nehemiah mostly pronounced according to its Arabic counterpart.. Thomas sometimes pronounced according to its Coptic counterpart, unless of course it's meant to be that way.. oujai
  • @TITL prophecy is the noun and prophesy is the verb oujai
  • @TITL, are you Canadian or British? Apparently the Americans pronounce it "ar" in the quick day to day language and our As @Remenkimi says only to stress the word out in speech.. oujai
