Ask The Nuwaupians, Did Dr. York learn Arabic at the State Street Mosque, Brooklyn, New York or did he speak Arabic as his native language before learning English?

Answer: I don't know, I never heard about this. 

Malachi York then known as Imaam Isa says this about his language of Arabic,

"When I was asked who taught me Arabic, I said a Syrian, when I was in State Street Mosque, a Syrian named Ghalib taught us Arabic."

-The Ansar Cult: Rebuttal to the Slanderers pg. 576


York is clarifying exactly where he was taught Arabic, which was by way of a Syrian, yet he says... 

"Ana atakalam lugha arabiyya fusha .... that was my language before English"

-Existence of The Most High video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfPnpuE2JDg

Those are York's words and his apparent translation of the Arabic statement. 

How is it that he was taught Arabic at age 12 when he lived in the State Street Mosque in 1957, yet Arabic was his language before English?

York contradicts both statements by saying,

In 1973 A.D. I became a student of the University of Khartoum in Sudan by way of an arrangement established by Dr. Awan Shariff, the Head of the Ministry of Religious Affairs in Sudan.  This was done under the coordination of the Prime Minister of the country for me to improve my Arabic language.  After having lived in the United States for a while, I lost a lot of my language.

-The Ansar Cult: Rebuttal to the Slanderers pg.115

So which is it?

1. Did he first learn Arabic in State Street?

2. Was it his language before learning English?

3. He had to go to Sudan to learn it because after living in America for so long, he lost the ability to speak it effectively?  How could he have lost his language when he claimed that he lived in the State Street Mosque from age 12 and continued to assist Shaikh Daoud from 1967 on through the 1970's until his death in 1980?
