Our dear "really: aka CLdwards wrote this little gem

>I am trying to figure how the author of this post doesn't understand that words in brackets are translators notes.

Maududi and the demagogue Ahmad Deedat said that not a single word in the Qur'an has been altered! This is another big fat lie

Here is Surat al-Nur 56 (you can check the Arabic text in Yusuf Ali's translation)

واقيموا الصلوة واتوا الزكوة

However, there is no such words as الصلوة and الزكوة in Arabic. It is either Allah made two mistakes in spelling or these are loan words from Syriac ܨܳܠܰܝܬܳܐ and ܙܶܕܩܬܳܐ but this would be strange because the author of the Qur'an claims that the Qur'an is an Arabic book! So which one is it our dear "Really" aka CLdwards?

More disasters? If you check the 1923-1924 Cairo Qur'an you will discover that these two words have been edited yes edited and now they are the Arabic الصلاة and الزكاة and this is how you will find the EDITED verse:

واقيموا الصلاة واتوا الزكاة

This only means that the words of your Allah have been edited and Muslims hope that we kuffar will not discover this disaster

So what does this have to do with the poor translation of Sahih? Here is their Arabic text

واقيموا الصلوة واتوا الزكوة

Which is not the text one would find in the Cairo Qur'an! What a disaster

And here is their bogus translation

"and establish prayer and give zakah"

However, there is no Arabic word called Salwa (they translate it as prayer BTW prayer in Arabic is Salat) and their in no Arabic word called Zakwa and this is what is their text (They don't even translate the word Zakwa and inform the readers that this is not an Arabic word. They only sneak in the Arabic equivalent which Zakat and not their bogus zakah) Oh the Ta marbouta at the end of both words? The translators at Sahih have no clue how to transliterate it!

So what do we have here?

1. Muslims are editing the Qur'an proving that both Maududi (sp?) and Deedat were either lairs or ignorant

2. Translators that are not honest enough to tell the readers that these two words الصلوة and الزكوة are not Arabic words

Here is a link to this disaster from Sahih translation

https://quran.com/24/56

And here is a link the KSA Quranic text and Tafsir where you will find that both words have been edited!

http://quran.ksu.edu.sa/tafseer/tabary/sura24-aya56.html

So you see our dear "really" aka CLdwards you need to stick to Urdu.
