Sahih International: They will say there were three, the fourth of them being their dog; and they will say there were five, the sixth of them being their dog - guessing at the unseen; and they will say there were seven, and the eighth of them was their dog.

So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument and do not inquire about them among [the speculators] from anyone."
