Blatant mistranslation of Fatawa Abdul Hai to attack Caliph Umar

Answering-Ansar says:

Twenty third example of Sunni morality – Hadhrath Umar’s special male ‘assistance’ with ablution

We read in Ahl’ul Sunnah’s authentic, Fatawa Abdul Hai, Volume 1 page 154:

“The Servant of Hadhrath Umar narrates when Umar would urinate he would call out to me to bring something with which he could clean himself, I would bring him a piece of wood or a stone, would hold Hadhrath Umar’s penis and rub it against a wall or on the ground, Behaqi stated that this is the most Sahih tradition in this chapter and so has been narrated by Muhadith Dehalwi [rh]”
 Fatawa Abdul Hai, Volume 1 page 154

Comment

If this is the way that Hadhrath Umar would clean himself, then we poor Shi’a have every right to ask how a simple man who hasn’t got an understanding of urinating and cleaning his backside would be able to go to his wives at night for more complex matters? Would he also keep his Servants at his side to aid him on these occasions? What can we say about this great Khalifa, who would even turn to his Servants to clean him, we ask for forgiveness with regards to the level of immorality that exists in this narration – one wherein a Servant would take a hold of Umar’s penis before the people and place it on a wall!

Any Shia can save their esteemed website from shame by telling us the underlined text in Fatawa Abdul Hai. Here is the highlighted text from the Fatawa Abdul Hai which Answering-Ansar has uploaded.

The correct translation is as following.

The Servant of Hadhrath Umar narrates when Umar would urinate he would call out to me to bring something with which he could clean himself, I would bring him a piece of wood or a stone, or he would go towards a wall, or he would and rub it against the ground.

The poor Shias have every right to ask Answering-Ansar, don’t you feel any shame in deceiving the people?
