    Don't worry, Korben. Just use exxcéntrica's version and you'll be fine.

    Sorry, Kloben, that was a very "weird" translation " ...so I corrected it for you.

    Especially the stem changing verbs...that was funny.

    Use my version and it will be ok.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Tallo = stem in flowers. Rosas de tallo largo = Long stemmed roses.

    Stem for verbs = raíz

    In Spanish, verbs haven't got stems nor leaves, flowers or fruits BUT they have raíces (roots).

    Don't worry it's the kind of hilarious mistakes we all make when learning a language and making too literal translations.
