Meaning of Ashab
« on: February 21, 2017, 01:39:13 AM »

What does the word ashab mean there are different Translation for this word but in my understanding it is sometimes wrong translated by the author for example 13:36
Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came messengers to it.
Coin for them a similitude: The people of the city when those sent (from Allah) came unto them;

translated by pickethall and jusuf ali

All Translation are switsching betwenn Companion or dwellers for the word ashab

what do you guys find the proper Translation and when?
