So our dear CLDwards al-tablighee and his bogus "argument from brackets"

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

Now check Sahih International translation of Surat al-Furqan 52 here is the link


"Do not believe the disbelievers, and strive against them with the Quran a great striving"

So you tell us:

1. Where can we find the word القران in the verse? Let me help you: It is not in the verse! It is a big fat lie.

2. How come the translators at Sahih International did not place the word Qur'an between brackets?

3. So were the brackets in this case eaten by a hungry goat too like the one that ate the Qur'an?

4. And if we turn to al-Qurtubi we discover that the word به or "with it" refers to السيف or the sword! So was he a liar or was he ignorant?

5. Where are the "brackets"? What a disaster

And I only just started

It is shameful to lie in a translation!
