In 30:4, Surah Al-Rum Ayah 4, the word بضع is translated to "three to nine" in Saheeh International.
Within three to nine years. To Allah belongs the command [i.e., decree] before and after. And that day the believers will rejoice
The word seems to mean "a few". I want to know the basis of translating it to "three to nine", with primary sources.
