    We have already asked in some places and with cd's and no way, almost nobody has this record any more. It is difficult to find. We are sorry. Friendly greetings to all of you.
    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)

    Thank you for your help exxcéntrica!
    Could compas mean CD, or was it more "freely" translated in this particular context?

    COMPAS means "friends" "pals" "buddies" , it is a common slang in some Latinoamerican countries, it is a short form for "compañeros" o "compadres" so the sentences could mean:
    I have already asked some friends (people) and nobody has de CD
