Here is another lesson for you - just because something is "published" does not mean that said published item is true or accepted as true. Also "publishing" something does not mean anyone has been convinced by your logic (or lack thereof).
But they survived your objections.
Same thing with all your arguments so far whether it is 111 or 105 or any other.
As we have seen idhrib is used many times in quran as "strike". Thus using some stray meaning of the word to argue that the word means something else can hardly convince anybody - especially when the new meaning make absolutely no sense and only end up with you striking the air.
Because “strike” was inferred. Unfortunately the word never actually means "strike", as can be seen from this sample:
“And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, "Set forth (idhrib) (by hitting) with your staff the stone."” (2:6o) Notice where hitting is involved, an weapon is identified.
“And they were set forth (duribat) with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger” (2:61) (commonly translated as “strike”)
“So, We said, "Set forth (idhrib) (moving or bringing to life by hitting) the slain man with part of it." Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.” (2:73) Notice where hitting is involved, a weapon is identified.
“Abasement is set forth over them (duribat) wherever they are found…” (3:112)
“Men are in charge of women by
what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and set forth (idhrib) them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.” (4:34)
“[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so set forth (strike) (idhrib) upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."” (8:12) Their weapons are already known.
“And if you could but see when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieved... They are setting forth (to Hell) their faces and their backs and [saying], "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.” (8:50) (for comparison, see 4:47, 8:50, 33:66, 54:48, 75:23-35)
“And present (idhrib)to them an example of two men: We granted to one of them two gardens of grapevines, and We bordered them with palm trees and placed between them [fields of] crops.” (18:32)
“And present (idhrib) to them the example of the life of this world,” (18:45)
“And We had inspired to Moses, "Travel by night with My servants and set forth (idhrib) for them a dry path through the sea” (20:77)
“and to set forth (adhrib) their covers over their chests” (24:31)
“And let them not stamp (set forth) (adhrib) their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment.” (24:31)
“Then We inspired to Moses, "Set forth (possibly by striking) (idhrib) with your staff the sea," and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.” (26:63) Notice where hitting MAY BE involved, weapon is identified.
“And set forth (idhrib) to them an example: the people of the city, when the messengers came to it.” (36:13)
“Then did he turn upon them, setting forth (darban) with the right hand.” (37:93)
“Then how [will it be] when the angels take them in death, setting forth (to hell) (idhrib) their faces and their backs?” (47:27) (for comparison, see 4:47, 8:50, 33:66, 54:48, 75:23-35)
I will take your point about "softly" as evidence that the ahadith are wrong. Thus, they are inconsequential.
