More disasters for our dear Fork and this time from Tafsir al-Jalalyin and Q7:169

Reader comment on item: Developments in Syria and Turkey
in response to reader comment: Adna has two meanings like I said before

Our dear Fork is not aware that تفسير الجلالين or Tafsir al-Jalalayin says that the Quranic verse:

Q7:169: يأخذون عرض هذا الادنى

It has no clear meaning but this what the Tafsir says:

اي حطام هذا الشيء الدنيء اي الدنيا من حلال وحرام

This can be rendered as:

Or the wreckage of this sordid thing/vile/despicable!

And the word here is and you guessed it الدنيء not الادنى which makes me suspect that this could very will be a Quranic mistake and this is the source of this bogus claim that al-Adna or the NEAREST means al-Danee' or Vile/Despicable/Low life)!

Again: الدنيء means: Vile/Low life/Despicable

الادنى (notice the similarity between both words) means: Nearest

I can stop here and tell you that your claim is bogus that the word Adna means LOWEST not back and not now

Here is the translation of the rest of the text:

ي الدنيا من حلال وحرام

Or the world from allowed and forbidden

Nothing about Lowest!

See? You need to stick to Urdu

Dear readers: I suspected that the source of this bogus claim that Q30:3 says that the Greeks were defeated in the Lowest land not in the Nearest land must have poor command of the Arabic alphabet and grammar and therefore mixed the word الدنيء (Low life/despicable) and read it as الادنى or the NEAREST et voila another lie is spread by other tablighees who cannot speak read or write Arabic

Did you get it our dear Fork? Let me guess: No?
