Great quiz. Very good work on the type-ins. I can't believe I missed Noah - didn't even read the clue. Maybe you could add Zachariah or Zacheriah for spellings for that one? That's the only one I missed on account of spelling. And I tried "Israel" but not Jacob... didn't read the clue for that one, either. d'oh.

Actually I guess I was trying mostly Christian and Jewish spellings as I went back and tried more popular Muslim spellings of these names and most weren't accepted. Some suggestions?

Lud for Lot

Yousaf, Yusef, Yusaf, Yousef... the first one is how my Pakistani roommate in Saudi Arabia spelled it

Muse for Moses... I think that's the Sudanese spelling

Hahrun for Aaron. Yaya for Yahya. I've seen it that way in Turkey or India I think.

and then of course there are a billion spellings of Muhammad... Mohamed, Mohamad, Mohammed, Muhamad, Muhamed, Mohamet, Mehmet, Hamed, Mohd, etc etc etc.

Thanks for your praise and inputs, Kal! I will consider these spellings on my next update. I tried to limit type-ins to the correct transcription of the standard Arabic pronunciations, so that with some effort quiztakers will learn the accurate spellings, but I will definitely expand some of them. Sorry about Zacheriah!

Hamed is not spelling of Muhammad, It is another name "Hamid or Hamed" Of Prophet Muhammad
Level 73
Apr 29, 2021
Actually it's not a name of prophet Muhammad at all, as far as I know. It does come from the same root (H-M-D), meaning something like "praise", or "thanks". The name Hamid (or Hamed) means someone who is a continuous giver of thanks or praise to someone or something (normally to God). Muhammad means someone or something that is praiseworthy.

However, Muhammad was also named once in the Qur'an as "Ahmad" (or Ahmed), which is the comparative form of the H-M-D root, meaning something or someone more praiseworthy (than something or someone else).

Absolutely awesome quiz!!! 10/10 for work and effort.

I may add a slight request that you add "shoaib" as a type-in for "Shuaib".
