    Yeah I originally thought up of this because i noticed when someone has a better set of vocab they are more articulate and thy are able to speak more elegantly. They can explain themselves more, they sound sophisticated, and more intelligent. i mean have you ever seen the Khalid Yasin videos, whoo check out his vocab!

    well heres the game I will list the first set of words which will all begin with A and you have to define the words and use one or more in a sentence. the more you use the better. the person that can use the most in ONE sentence is the winner! Better if sentence connects with islam but not a neccesity!

    Rules: sentence has to be appropriate
    it cannot be runon
    you have to use correct punctuation
    in order for the word to count you have to define it correctly
    and oh yeah it has to make SENSE (not logially but rather grammatically)
