Poor translations of the Qur'an by the ignorant Yusuf Ali

Reader comment on item: Mocking Muhammad Is Not Hate Speech
in response to reader comment: Quran and logic of behaving

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Sep 26, 2012 at 09:32

Our dear Your whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and who lives among kuffar and who like all tablighees have no clue about when and how to use the definite article this one is really beyond you but read and enjoy

For the readers: In Q8:65 we have the embarrassing problem that Allah is inciting Muhammad and Muslims to violence and war and the word in question is حرض or incite as how can Allah preach war and mayhem?

Now enter the liar Yusuf Ali and this is his translation for the word harrad: ROUSE

But the word rouse in Arabic is really yusahhi or يصحي and here is the Arabic/Arabic dixtionary http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A&word=%D9%8A%D8%B5%D8%AD%D9%8A

Which you would not find it in the above verse. This means that Yusuf Ali was either a liar or ignorant

Oh Pickthall? He is not any better he translates the word as exhort! But the word exhortation in Arabic is وعظ and here is the meaning in an Arabic/Arabic dictionary http://www.almaany.com/home.php?language=arabic&lang_name=%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A8%D9%8A&word=%D9%88%D8%B9%D8%B8 which makes him less ignorant then the big time liar Yusuf Ali

Oh the religion of peace
