      [MUST READ] Welcome to LOLScans! [CLICK ME!]   11/13/2016

      We have removed the 5 post count policy! The public download is now officially open without the need of 5 posts.    Q: Why? A: We are now stopping the upload in any online reader aside from ours.   Leechers (those who like stealing and uploading elsewhere) can still get their chapters if they want by grabbing it there:https://forum.lolscans.com/index.php?/forum/13-ongoing/    However, watermark and ads applies (as respect for us at the very least.) And because we all know that it's not hard to grab our works from our online reader (despite finding ways to make it impossible or if not impossible very hard and annoying) we have decided to leave tiny watermarks in our releases. Don't worry, the placing and the size should not affect your reading experience and convenience. (It's also because we really can't stop people from stealing if they really want to... might as well, steal the version we are fine being stolen.)   If you want to get access to our clean (ads-free and watermark-free) version, all you have to do is donate (any amount will do.)   We made a VIP Lounge in our discord server and here in our forum. All you have to do is show us the proof of your donation transaction and give us your username in the forum and discord to give you full access to our clean releases. Follow the instructions here: https://forum.lolscans.com/index.php?/topic/530-to-our-supporters/   Contest winners will be given clean version of 2 projects of their choice for 2 months. (So, what are you waiting for? Join our open community contests!)   Q: What are the limitations? A: All we ask of you is to not upload nor share the clean version elsewhere. We don't care if you share the available chapters in our public download or by stripping it out of our online reader, but keep the clean version to yourself. It is specifically ONLY for all of our supporters. Thank you!     If you have any questions/concerns, don't hesitate to make a topic in our Feedback and Suggestion forum: https://forum.lolscans.com/index.php?/forum/5-feedback-and-suggestions/   Before you start your posting galore, please make sure to read our Forum Rules: https://forum.lolscans.com/index.php?/forum/3-forum-rules/   If you want to mingle with us, join us on discord: https://discord.gg/cQSS3hn   Have fun! ^^

Wow. It's been a long time since I've seen a manga with Middle East background.

 

 

For Trivia though, Abu Aqro means Father of Books/Father of Reading. Not Akr, Aqro (or maybe Aquro?). Arabic's grammar is way stricter than English'. Different Arabic alphabets have different pronunciations, that is either with the lower throat, the middle throat, the upper throat, nasal, jaw (?) (How do you call that place right at the tongue's base again?), tongue, etc. And of course, with they go different meanings. If my memory serves me right, Akr/Karo'a/Yakri'u means (to) promise, while Aqro/Quro'a/Yaqro'u means (to) read. In a more simple way to understand, Qur'an was derived from Quro'a, meaning "Something to read/learn of".

 

Just like my name. Not Fakri, it's Fakhri. Fakri means poor, beggarly, indigent. While Fakhri means Our pride/Our boastful (son). Now consider how different is that. And my feelings when they call me beggar the whole year around...

Hey Mabbo, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'll let the translator know about the Aqro and we'll make changes accordingly after. Thank you for the trivia, it is quite interesting and helpful. :crabokay:

Hey, I'm the translator for MotL, and was just looking at the conjugations of Iqra here: https://cooljugator.com/ar/قرأ Which tense should we be looking at?

Don't ask me. It's been, like,6 years since I part myself from those Arabic whatnot. All I know is that you wrote it wrong.

 

Ah, but, I think you should use Aqro (Jussive tense of Ana). It's written Aqra, but you read it Aqro. Abu here is a name that given to you after your first son ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kunya_(Arabic) ), so I don't know why a City was named as Abu Aqro. Though, if we following that pattern, Aqro here is a name, and you name your child with a Jussive Tense.

What about making it Aphu Aqra? That was suggested to me from a different source.

On other note, do you use discord? It should be easier than the forums for conversations, and I would love to have someone around well versed in the intricacies of arabic,~ xD especially in a series with heavy arabic reference.

But there's no "P" in Hijaiya (Arabic Alphabet)... Well, that's for you to decide, I think.

 

Also, I do use Discord, but I don't think I can be of use? I mean, I was just suggesting a little change in the translation. Arabic is already way out of my league, all I know was just some little bit of things. My knowledge of it is not only limited, it's scarce. Just like how you sister likes K-Pop so you know "Saranghaeyo" means "I love you", but limited only to that. Or like how you browse 9gag so you know Guten Morgen is Good Morning in Germany, but you yourself not really sure about that.

 

But, nonetheless, thanks for the offer. I'll check the discord, and help if I can.

But yea, when you get on LOLscan's discord, just ask for Huapollon.
