Our dear "really" aka CLdwards wrote

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

These are the first 5 verses of Qur'an 100

1. والعاديات ضبحا
2. فالموريات قدحا
3. فالمغيرات صبحا
4. فاثرن به نقعا
5. فوسطن به جمعا

And here the disaster: al-Mufasereen had no clue what these 5 verses mean! Here is al-Tabari

http://quran.ksu.edu.sa/tafseer/tabary/sura100-aya1.html

And here is what Pickthall wrote about these 5 verses:

"The meaning of the first five verses is by no means clear. The above is probable rendering"

This means Pickthall does not know and he is only guessing!

However, the translators at Sahih know what these 5 verses mean! Sobhanallah!

Here is their bogus translation Notice they don't even admit that the meaning of these 5 verses is not clear!

https://quran.com/100/1-5

Oh no brackets? Were they eaten by the hungry goat too?

Now, Care to explain to us our dear "Really"?
