in response to reader comment: Adna means low

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Dec 1, 2019 at 08:39

Here is a link to al-Tabari's Tafsir of Qur'an 30:3

http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=30&verse=3

And here is a link to translations of the Qur'an

http://corpus.quran.com/translation.jsp?chapter=30&verse=3

1. Sahih International translates the word Adna as: Nearest

2. Pickthall: Nearer

3. Yusuf Ali: Close by

4. Shakir: Near land

5. Mohsin Khan: Nearer land

6. Arberry: Nearer land

I do not see any "lowest"

But again Muslims from India and Pakistan try very hard to convince themselves that the Qur'an is a book of science when the author of the book tells us that the earth is flat!

So are all of them Mossad agents and CIA operatives and islamophobes?
