Why testimony of one men is equal to that of 2 womens?
« on: September 19, 2012, 02:36:50 PM »
Pickthall's translation 2:282 (part) -
.....And call to witness, from among your men,
two witnesses. And if two men be not (at hand) then a man and two women, of
such as ye approve as witnesses, so that if the one erreth (through
forgetfulness) the other will remember. And the witnesses must not refuse
when they are summoned......
