al-Tabari defines the word Adna! More disasters for our dear Fork who needs to stick to Urdu!

Dear Readers: Tafsir al-Tabari is the earliest extant Tafsir of the Qur'an (this is as close as we can get to Muhammad's time) and it is really the foundation for understanding the confused and confusing book of Allah and with regard to Qur'an 30:3 it says:

في ادنى الارض

Or In the nearest earth (read this as land)

This is what al-Tabari wrote:

من ارض الشام الى ارض فارس

Or from the Land of al-Sham (The Levant) to the Land of Fars (Persia)

I don't see anything about lowest or the area of البحر الميت (the dead sea)

So was al-Tabari ignorant of the Arabic language or was he a liar

But again Surat al-Ruum is a disaster

So go and ask one of your Arab masters to translate الشرق الادنى: Hint: The nearest East (aka the Middle East) not the lowest East!

Do you see? Tablighees like you do not speak read or write Arabic and many of them are ignorant and liars and you are no more than another victim of lies

Next? Translations of the Qur'an by Muslims!
