    LOL! Indeed! Whether its Akkadian, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, Persian/Parsi, Ethiopic, Syriac etc, the erudite philologist, linguist and theologian, Arthur Jeffery has listed comprehensively almost all (99%) of the the foreign and loan words that were borrowed by the Quran and used by it all over the place in its pages, here:

    If they magically transformed into Arabic, "a heavenly language" it must have gone around the world first, before landing in the minds, words and pens of the Quran's writers, compilers and composers! It certainly does show that Arabic was such an inadequate and incomplete language, & FAR from a perfect and even "clear" (mubin) one for the readers and composers of the day.
