015:008 Maulana     We send not angels but with truth, and then they would not be respited.

015:010

015:010 Khan          Indeed, We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad SAW) amongst the sects (communities) of old.

015:010 Maulana     And certainly We sent (messengers) before thee among the sects of yore.

015:010 Pickthal      We verily sent (messengers) before thee among the factions of the men of old.

015:010 Rashad       We have sent (messengers) before you to the communities in the past.

015:010 Sarwar       We sent Messengers to the ancient people who lived before you.

015:010 Shakir        And certainly We sent (messengers) before you among the nations of yore.

015:010 Sherali       And WE sent Messengers before thee among parties of ancient people.

015:010 Yusufali     We did send messengers before thee amongst the religious sects of old:

015:011

015:011 Khan          And never came a Messenger to them but they did mock him.

015:011 Maulana     And there never came a messenger to them but they mocked him.

015:011 Pickthal      And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him.

015:011 Rashad       Every time a messenger went to them, they ridiculed him.

015:011 Sarwar       No Messenger went to them whom they did not mock.

015:011 Shakir        And there never came a messenger to them but they mocked him.

015:011 Sherali       And there never came to them a Messenger but they mocked at him.

015:011 Yusufali     But never came a messenger to them but they mocked him.

015:012

015:012 Khan          Thus do We let it (polytheism and disbelief) enter into the hearts of the Mujrimun [criminals, polytheists, pagans, etc. (because of their mockery at the Messengers)].

015:012 Maulana     Thus do We make it enter the hearts of the guilty --

015:012 Pickthal      Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty:

015:012 Rashad       We thus control the minds of the guilty.

015:012 Sarwar       This is how We cause the hearts of the guilty ones to behave.

015:012 Shakir        Thus do We make it to enter into the hearts of the guilty;

015:012 Sherali       Thus do WE cause this habit of mocking to enter into the hearts of the sinful people.

015:012 Yusufali     Even so do we let it creep into the hearts of the sinners -

015:013

015:013 Khan          They would not believe in it (the Qur'an), and already the example of (Allah's punishment of) the ancients (who disbelieved) has gone forth.

015:013 Maulana     They believe not in it; and the example of the ancients has gone before.

015:013 Pickthal      They believe not therein, though the example of the men of old hath gone before.

015:013 Rashad       Consequently, they cannot believe in him. This has been the system since the past generations.

015:013 Sarwar       They do not believe in the Truth and they exactly follow the tradition of the ancient (unbelievers)

015:013 Shakir        They do not believe in it, and indeed the example of the former people has already passed.

015:013 Sherali       They believe not in this Qur'an, though the example of the former peoples have gone before them.

015:013 Yusufali     That they should not believe in the (Message); but the ways of the ancients have passed away.

015:014

015:014 Khan          And even if We opened to them a gate from the heaven and they were to continue ascending thereto,

015:014 Maulana     And even if We open to them a gate of heaven, and they keep on ascending into it,

015:014 Pickthal      And even if We opened unto them a gate of heaven and they kept mounting through it,

015:014 Rashad       Even if we opened for them a gate into the sky, through which they climb;

015:014 Sarwar       Had We opened a door for them in the sky through which they could easily pass,

015:014 Shakir        And even if We open to them a gateway of heaven, so that they ascend into it all the while,

015:014 Sherali       And even if WE open to them a gate in heaven, and they kept ascending through it,

015:014 Yusufali     Even if We opened out to them a gate from heaven, and they were to continue (all day) ascending therein,

015:015

015:015 Khan          They would surely say: "Our eyes have been (as if) dazzled. Nay, we are a people bewitched."

015:015 Maulana     They would say: Only our eyes have been covered over, rather we are an enchanted people.

015:015 Pickthal      They would say: Our sight is wrong - nay, but we are folk bewitched.

015:015 Rashad       they will say, "Our eyes have been deceived. We have been bewitched."

015:015 Sarwar       they would have said, "Our eyes are bewildered and we have been affected by magic."

015:015 Shakir        They would certainly say: Only our eyes have been covered over, rather we are an enchanted people.

015:015 Sherali       They would surely say, `Only our eyes are dazed; rather we are a bewitched people'

015:015 Yusufali     They would only say: "Our eyes have been intoxicated: Nay, we have been bewitched by sorcery.”

015:016

015:016                   Section 2: Forces of Evil will be destroyed

015:016 Khan          And indeed, We have put the big stars in the heaven and We beautified it for the beholders.

015:016 Maulana     And certainly We have made strongholds in the heaven, and We have made it fair-seeming to the beholders,

015:016 Rashad       We placed galaxies in the sky, and adorned it for the beholders.

015:016 Sarwar       We have made constellations in the sky and decorated them for the onlookers.

015:016 Shakir        And certainly We have made strongholds in the heaven and We have made it fair seeming to the beholders.

015:016 Sherali       And WE have, indeed, made mansions of stars in the heaven and have adorned it for beholders.

015:016 Yusufali     It is We Who have set out the zodiacal signs in the heavens, and made them fair-seeming to (all) beholders;

015:017

015:017 Rashad       And we guarded it against every rejected devil.

015:017 Sarwar       We have protected them from every condemned devil,

015:017 Shakir        And We guard it against every accursed Shaitan,

015:017 Sherali       And WE have guarded it against the intrusion of every rejected Satan.

015:017 Yusufali     And (moreover) We have guarded them from every cursed devil:

015:018

015:018 Khan          Except him (devil) that gains hearing by stealing, he is pursued by a clear flaming fire.

015:018 Maulana     But he who steals a hearing; so there follows him a visible flame.

015:018 Pickthal      Save him who stealeth the hearing, and them doth a clear flame pursue.

015:018 Rashad       If any of them sneaks around to listen, a mighty projectile will chase him back.

015:018 Sarwar       except for those who stealthily try to listen to the heavens, but who are chased away by a bright flame.

015:018 Shakir        But he who steals a hearing, so there follows him a visible flame.

015:018 Sherali       But if anyone hears stealthily something of revelation and distorts it, there pursues him a bright flame.

015:018 Yusufali     But any that gains a hearing by stealth, is pursued by a flaming fire, bright (to see).

015:019

015:019 Khan          And the earth We spread out, and placed therein firm mountains, and caused to grow therein all kinds of things in due proportion.

015:022

015:022 Khan          And We send the winds fertilizing (to fill heavily the clouds with water), then caused the water (rain) to descend from the sky, and We gave it to you to drink, and it is not you who are the owners of its stores [i.e. to give water to whom you like or to withhold it from whom you like].

015:022 Maulana     And We send the winds fertilizing, then send down water from the clouds, so We give it to you to drink; not is it you who store it up.

015:022 Pickthal      And We send the winds fertilising, and cause water to descend from the sky, and give it you to drink. It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof.

015:022 Rashad       And we send the winds as pollinators, and cause water to come down from the sky for you to drink. Otherwise, you could not keep it palatable.

015:022 Sarwar       We send impregnating winds and send down water from the sky for you to drink and you have no (control over its) storage.

015:022 Shakir        And We send the winds fertilizing, then send down water from the cloud so We give it to you to drink of, nor is it you who store it up.

015:022 Sherali       And WE send fecundating winds, then WE send down water from the clouds, then WE give it to you to drink, and you could not yourselves store it.
