043:000                   In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

043:001

043:001                   Section 1: Revelation is a Divine Favour

043:001 Khan          Ha-Mim. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings].

043:001 Maulana     Beneficent God!

043:001 Pickthal      Ha. Mim.

043:001 Rashad       H. M.

043:001 Sarwar       Ha. Mim.

043:001 Shakir        Ha Mim.

043:001 Sherali       Há Mím.

043:001 Yusufali     Ha-Mim

043:002

043:002 Khan          By the manifest Book (that makes things clear, i.e. this Qur'an).

043:002 Maulana     By the Book that makes manifest!

043:002 Pickthal      By the Scripture which maketh plain,

043:002 Rashad       And the enlightening scripture.

043:002 Sarwar       I swear by the illustrious Book.

043:002 Shakir        I swear by the Book that makes things clear:

043:002 Sherali       WE cite as evidence this perspicuous Book,

043:002 Yusufali     By the Book that makes things clear,-

043:003

043:003 Khan          We verily, have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions).

043:003 Maulana     Surely We have made it an Arabic Qur’an that you may understand.

043:003 Pickthal      Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may understand.

043:003 Rashad       We have rendered it an Arabic Quran, that you may understand.

043:003 Sarwar       We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand.

043:003 Shakir        Surely We have made it an Arabic Quran that you may understand.

043:003 Sherali       WE have made it a Book to be oft read in clear, eloquent language that you may understand.

043:003 Yusufali     We have made it a Qur'an in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom).

043:004

043:004 Khan          And Verily, it (this Qur'an) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom.

043:004 Maulana     And it is in the Original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom.

043:004 Pickthal      And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive.

043:004 Rashad       It is preserved with us in the original master, honorable and full of wisdom.

043:004 Sarwar       It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures).

043:004 Shakir        And surely it is in the original of the Book with Us, truly elevated, full of wisdom.

043:004 Sherali       And, surely, it is safe with US in the Mother of the Book, exalted and full of wisdom.

043:004 Yusufali     And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom.

043:005

043:005 Khan          Shall We then (warn you not and) take away the Reminder (this Qur'an) from you, because you are a people Musrifun.

043:005 Maulana     Shall We then turn away the Reminder from you altogether because you are a prodigal people?

043:005 Pickthal      Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk?

043:005 Rashad       Should we just ignore the fact that you have transgressed the limits?

043:005 Sarwar       Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people?.

043:005 Shakir        What! shall We then turn away the reminder from you altogether because you are an extravagant people?

043:005 Sherali       Shall WE then take away the reminder from you, leaving you without guidance because you are an extravagant people?

043:005 Yusufali     Shall We then take away the Message from you and repel (you), for that ye are a people transgressing beyond bounds?

043:006

043:006 Khan          And how many a Prophet have We sent amongst the men of old.

043:006 Maulana     And how many a prophet did We send among the ancients!

043:006 Pickthal      How many a prophet did We send among the men of old!

043:006 Rashad       We have sent many a prophet to the previous generations.

043:006 Sarwar       How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people?.

043:006 Shakir        And how many a prophet have We sent among the ancients.

043:006 Sherali       And how many a Prophet did WE send among the earlier peoples !

043:006 Yusufali     But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old?

043:007

043:007 Khan          And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him.

043:007 Maulana     And no prophet came to them but they mocked him.

043:007 Pickthal      And never came there unto them a prophet but they used to mock him.

043:007 Rashad       Every time a prophet went to them, they ridiculed him.

043:007 Sarwar       No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock.

043:007 Shakir        And there came not to them a prophet but they mocked at him.

043:007 Sherali       But there never came to them a Prophet but they mocked at him.

043:007 Yusufali     And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him.

043:008

043:008 Khan          Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them).

043:008 Maulana     Then We destroyed those stronger than these in prowess, and the example of the ancients has gone before.

043:008 Pickthal      Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them).

043:008 Rashad       Consequently, we annihilated people who were even more powerful than these. We thus set the examples from the previous communities.

043:008 Sarwar       We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned.

043:008 Shakir        Then We destroyed those who were stronger than these in prowess, and the case of the ancients has gone before,

043:008 Sherali       And WE destroyed those who were mightier in power than these, and the example of the earlier peoples has gone before.

043:008 Yusufali     So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old.

043:009

043:009 Khan          And indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them."

043:009 Maulana     And if thou ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them,

043:009 Pickthal      And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower created them;

043:009 Rashad       If you asked them, "Who created the heavens and the earth," they would say, "The Almighty, the Omniscient has created them."

043:009 Sarwar       (Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them".

043:009 Shakir        And if you should ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? they would most certainly say: The Mighty, the Knowing One, has created them;

043:009 Sherali       And if thou ask them, `Who created the heavens and the earth?'  they will, surely, say `The Mighty, the All-Knowing God created them,'

043:009 Yusufali     If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' They would be sure to reply, 'they were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of Knowledge';-

043:010

043:010 Khan          Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way,

043:010 Maulana     Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and made in it ways for you that you might go aright.

043:010 Pickthal      Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way;

043:010 Rashad       He is the One who made the earth habitable for you, and created for you roads therein, that you may follow the right way.

043:010 Sarwar       It is He who has made the earth for you as a cradle and has made roads therein so that you will perhaps seek guidance.

043:010 Shakir        He Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and made in it ways for you that you may go aright;

043:010 Sherali       HE, Who has made the earth for you a cradle and has made pathways for you therein, that you may follow the right way;

043:010 Yusufali     (Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way);

043:011

043:011 Khan          And Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the dead),

043:011 Maulana     And Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead land; even so will you be brought forth.

043:011 Pickthal      And Who sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth;

043:011 Rashad       He is the One who sends down from the sky water, in exact measure, to revive dead lands therewith. Similarly, you will be resurrected.

043:011 Sarwar       It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected.

043:011 Shakir        And He Who sends down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We raise to life thereby a dead country, even thus shall you be brought forth;

043:011 Sherali       And Who sends down water from the clouds in proper measure, and WE, thereby, quicken a dead land - even so will you be raise -

043:011 Yusufali     That sends down (from time to time) rain from the sky in due measure;- and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead; even so will ye be raised (from the dead);-

043:012

043:012 Khan          And Who has created all the pairs and has appointed for you ships and cattle on which you ride,

043:012 Maulana     And Who created pairs of all things, and made for you ships and cattle on which you ride,

043:012 Pickthal      He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride.

043:012 Rashad       He is the One who created all kinds, in pairs (male and female), and He created for you ships and livestock to ride.

043:012 Sarwar       It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to ride,

043:012 Shakir        And He Who created pairs of all things, and made for you of the ships and the cattle what you ride on,

043:012 Sherali       And Who has created pairs of all things, and has made for you ships and cattle whereon you ride,

043:012 Yusufali     That has created pairs in all things, and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye ride,

043:013

043:013 Khan          In order that you may mount firmly on their backs, and then may remember the Favour of your Lord when you mount thereon, and say: "Glory to Him who has subjected this to us, and we could never have it (by our efforts)."

043:013 Maulana     That you may sit firm on their backs, then remember the favour of your Lord, when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it,

043:013 Pickthal      That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them);

043:013 Rashad       As you rest on top of them, you shall appreciate such a blessing from your Lord, and say, "Glory be to the One who subdued this for us. We could not have controlled them by ourselves.

043:013 Sarwar       so that perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves.

043:013 Shakir        That you may firmly sit on their backs, then remember the favor of your Lord when you are firmly seated thereon, and say: Glory be to Him Who made this subservient to us and we were not able to do it

043:013 Sherali       That you may sit firmly upon their backs, and, then, when you are firmly seated thereon, you may remember the favour of your Lord, and say, `Holy is HE Who has subjected these to us, and we were not capable of subduing them ourselves,

043:013 Yusufali     In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favour of your Lord, and say, "Glory to Him Who has subjected these to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves),

043:014

043:014 Khan          And verily, to Our Lord we indeed are to return!

043:014 Maulana     And surely to our Lord we must return.

043:014 Pickthal      And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning.

043:014 Rashad       "We ultimately return to our Lord."

043:014 Sarwar       To our Lord we shall all return".

043:014 Shakir        And surely to our Lord we must return.

043:014 Sherali       `And to our Lord, surely, shall we return.'

043:014 Yusufali     "And to our Lord, surely, must we turn back!"

043:015

043:015 Khan          Yet they assign to some of His slaves a share with Him (by pretending that He has children, and considering them as equals or co-partners in worship with Him). Verily, man is indeed a manifest ingrate!

043:015 Maulana     And they assign to Him a part of His servants. Man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful.

043:015 Pickthal      And they allot to Him a portion of His bondmen! Lo! man is verily a mere ingrate.

043:015 Rashad       They even assigned for Him a share from His own creation! Surely, the human being is profoundly unappreciative.

043:015 Sarwar       The pagans have considered some of His servants as His children. There is no doubt that the human being is simply ungrateful.

043:015 Shakir        And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful.

043:015 Sherali       And they assign to HIM a part of HIS servants as HIS children. Indeed man is manifestly ungrateful.

043:015 Yusufali     Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in his godhead)! truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed!

043:016

043:016                   Section 2: Polytheism condemned

043:016 Khan          Or has He taken daughters out of what He has created, and He has selected for you sons?

043:016 Maulana     Or has He taken daughters to Himself of what He creates and chosen you to have sons?

043:016 Pickthal      Or chooseth He daughters of all that He hath created, and honoureth He you with sons?

043:016 Rashad       Has He chosen from among His creations daughters for Himself, while blessing you with sons?

043:016 Sarwar       Has God chosen some of His own creatures as daughters for Himself and has given you the preference of having sons?.

043:016 Shakir        What! has He taken daughters to Himself of what He Himself creates and chosen you to have sons?

043:016 Sherali       Has HE taken daughters from what HE has created, and favoured you with sons?

043:016 Yusufali     What! has He taken daughters out of what He himself creates, and granted to you sons for choice?

043:017

043:017 Khan          And if one of them is informed of the news of (the birth of) that which he set forth as a parable to the Most Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. of a girl), his face becomes dark, gloomy, and he is filled with grief!

043:017 Maulana     And when one of them is given news of that of which he sets up a likeness for the Beneficent his face becomes black and he is full of rage.

043:017 Pickthal      And if one of them hath tidings of that which he likeneth to the Beneficent One, his countenance becometh black and he is full of inward rage.

043:017 Rashad       When one of them is given news (of a daughter) as they claimed for the Most Gracious, his face is darkened with misery and anger!

043:017 Sarwar       When one of them is given the glad news of the birth of a daughter, which they believe to be the only kind of child that the Beneficent God can have, his face blackens with anger.

043:017 Shakir        And when one of them is given news of that of which he sets up as a likeness for the Beneficent Allah, his face becomes black and he is full of rage.

043:017 Sherali       Yet when the tidings are given to one of them of that the like of which he ascribes to the Gracious God, his face becomes dark and he is choked with inward grief.

043:017 Yusufali     When news is brought to one of them of (the birth of) what he sets up as a likeness to (Allah) Most Gracious, his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief!

043:018

043:018 Khan          (Do they then like for Allah) a creature who is brought up in adornments (wearing silk and gold ornaments, i.e. women), and in dispute cannot make herself clear?

043:018 Maulana     Is one decked with ornaments and unable to make plain speech in disputes (a partner with God)?

043:018 Pickthal      (Liken they then to Allah) that which is bred up in outward show, and in dispute cannot make itself plain?

043:018 Rashad       (They say,) "What is good about an offspring that is brought up to be beautiful, and cannot help in war?"

043:018 Sarwar       Does God choose for Himself the kind of children who grow up wearing ornaments and who are not strong enough to defend their rights?.

043:018 Shakir        What! that which is made in ornaments and which in contention is unable to make plain speech!

043:018 Sherali       Do they assign to ALLAH one who is nurtured among ornaments, and who is not able to give clear expression to an argument in disputation?

043:018 Yusufali     Is then one brought up among trinkets, and unable to give a clear account in a dispute (to be associated with Allah)?

043:019

043:019 Khan          And they make the angels who themselves are slaves to the Most Beneficent (Allah) females. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be questioned!

043:019 Maulana     And they make the angels who are the servants of the Beneficent, females. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded and they will be questioned.

043:019 Pickthal      And they make the angels, who are the slaves of the Beneficent, females. Did they witness their creation? Their testimony will be recorded and they will be questioned.

043:019 Rashad       They claimed that the angels, who are servants of the Most Gracious, are females! Have they witnessed their creation? Their claims are recorded, and they will be asked.

043:019 Sarwar       Do they say that the angels, who are the servants of the Beneficent God, are females? Have they witnessed their creation? Their words as such will be recorded and they will be questioned for it.

043:019 Shakir        And they make the angels-- them who are the servants of the Beneficent Allah-- female (divinities). What! did they witness their creation? Their evidence shall be written down and they shall be questioned.

043:019 Sherali       And they regard as females the angels who are the servants of the Gracious God. Did they witness their creation? Then their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned.

043:019 Yusufali     And they make into females angels who themselves serve Allah. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be called to account!

043:020

043:020 Khan          And they said: "If it had been the Will of the Most Beneficent (Allah), we should not have worshipped them (false deities)." They have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They do nothing but lie!

043:020 Maulana     And they say: If the Beneficent had pleased, we should not have worshipped them. They have no knowledge of this; they only lie.

043:020 Pickthal      And they say: If the Beneficent One had (so) willed, we should not have worshipped them. They have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They do but guess.

043:020 Rashad       They even said, "If the Most Gracious willed, we would not have worshipped them." They have no basis for such a claim; they only conjecture.

043:020 Sarwar       The pagans say, "Had the Beneficent God wanted, we would not have worshipped them (idols)." Whatever they say is not based on knowledge. It is only a false conjecture.

043:020 Shakir        And they say: If the Beneficent Allah had pleased, we should never have worshipped them. They have no knowledge of this; they only lie.

043:020 Sherali       And they say, `If the Gracious God had so willed, we should not have worshiped them.' They have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They do nothing but conjecture.

043:020 Yusufali     ("Ah!") they say, "If it had been the will of (Allah) Most Gracious, we should not have worshipped such (deities)!" Of that they have no knowledge! they do nothing but lie!

043:021

043:021 Khan          Or have We given them any Book before this (the Qur'an), to which they are holding fast?

043:021 Maulana     Or have We given them a Book before it so that they hold fast to it?

043:021 Pickthal      Or have We given them any scripture before (this Qur'an) so that they are holding fast thereto?

043:021 Rashad       Have we given them a book before this, and they are upholding it?

043:021 Sarwar       Had We, before sending the Quran, given them a book to which they now refer as an authority?.

043:021 Shakir        Or have We given them a book before it so that they hold fast to it?

043:021 Sherali       Have WE given them a Scripture before this, so that they are holding fast to it?

043:021 Yusufali     What! have We given them a Book before this, to which they are holding fast?

043:022

043:022 Khan          Nay! They say: "We found our fathers following a certain way and religion, and we guide ourselves by their footsteps."

043:022 Maulana     Nay, they say: We found our fathers on a course, and surely we are guided by their footprints.

043:022 Pickthal      Nay, for they say only: Lo! we found our fathers following a religion, and we are guided by their footprints.

043:022 Rashad       The fact is that: they said, "We found our parents carrying on certain practices, and we are following in their footsteps."

043:022 Sarwar       In fact, they say, "We found our fathers following a certain belief and we now follow in their footsteps for our guidance".

043:022 Shakir        Nay! they say: We found our fathers on a course, and surely we are guided by their footsteps.

043:022 Sherali       Nay, but they say, `We found our fathers following a certain course, and we are guided by their footsteps.'

043:022 Yusufali     Nay! they say: "We found our fathers following a certain religion, and we do guide ourselves by their footsteps.”

043:023

043:023 Khan          And similarly, We sent not a warner before you (O Muhammad SAW) to any town (people) but the luxurious ones among them said: "We found our fathers following a certain way and religion, and we will indeed follow their footsteps."

043:023 Maulana     And thus, We sent not before thee a warner in a town, but its wealthy ones said: Surely we found our fathers following a religion, and we follow their footsteps.

043:023 Pickthal      And even so We sent not a warner before thee (Muhammad) into any township but its luxurious ones said: Lo! we found our fathers following a religion, and we are following their footprints.

043:023 Rashad       Invariably, when we sent a warner to any community, the leaders of that community would say, "We found our parents following certain practices, and we will continue in their footsteps."

043:023 Sarwar       In the same way, whenever We had sent a Messenger before you to warn a town, the rich ones therein said, "We found our fathers following a certain belief and we follow in their footsteps.

043:023 Shakir        And thus, We did not send before you any warner in a town, but those who led easy lives in it said: Surely we found our fathers on a course, and surely we are followers of their footsteps.

043:023 Sherali       Even so WE never sent any Warner before thee to any township, but the wealthy ones among them said, `We found our fathers following a certain course, and we are following in their footsteps.'

043:023 Yusufali     Just in the same way, whenever We sent a Warner before thee to any people, the wealthy ones among them said: "We found our fathers following a certain religion, and we will certainly follow in their footsteps.”

043:024

043:024 Khan          (The warner) said: "Even if I bring you better guidance than that which you found your fathers following?" They said: "Verily, We disbelieve in that with which you have been sent."

043:024 Maulana     (The warner) said: And even if I bring to you a better guide than that which you found your fathers following? They said: We surely disbelieve in that with which you are sent.

043:024 Pickthal      (And the warner) said: What! Even though I bring you better guidance than that ye found your fathers following? They answered: Lo! in what ye bring we are disbelievers.

043:024 Rashad       (The messenger) would say, "What if I brought to you better guidance than what you inherited from your parents?" They would say, "We are disbelievers in the message you brought."

043:024 Sarwar       The Messengers would say, "Would you still follow in the footsteps of your fathers even if I was to bring you better guidance?" They would say, "We have no faith in your message".

043:024 Shakir        (The warner) said: What! even if I bring to you a better guide than that on which you found your fathers? They said: Surely we are unbelievers in that with which you are sent.

043:024 Sherali       Their Messenger said, `What !  even though I bring you a better guidance than that which you found your fathers following?' They said, `Certainly we disbelieve in that which you are sent with.'

043:024 Yusufali     He said: "What! Even if I brought you better guidance than that which ye found your fathers following?" They said: "For us, we deny that ye (prophets) are sent (on a mission at all).”

043:025

043:025 Khan          So We took revenge of them, then see what was the end of those who denied (Islamic Monotheism).

043:025 Maulana     So We exacted retribution from them, then see what was the end of the rejectors!

043:025 Pickthal      So We requited them. Then see the nature of the consequence for the rejecters!

043:025 Rashad       Consequently, we requited them. Note the consequences for the rejectors.

043:025 Sarwar       We took revenge on them. See how terrible the end of those who rejected (Or revelations) was!

043:025 Shakir        So We inflicted retribution on them, then see how was the end of the rejecters.

043:025 Sherali       So WE exacted retribution from them. Then see what was the end of those who rejected the Prophets !

043:025 Yusufali     So We exacted retribution from them: now see what was the end of those who rejected (Truth)!

043:026                   Section 3: Allah’s Choice of a Prophet

043:026 Khan          And (remember) when Ibrahim (Abraham) said to his father and his people: "Verily, I am innocent of what you worship,

043:026 Maulana     And when Abraham said to his sire and his people: I am clear of what you worship,

043:026 Pickthal      And when Abraham said unto his father and his folk: Lo! I am innocent of what ye worship

043:026 Rashad       Abraham said to his father and his people, "I disown what you worship.

043:026 Sarwar       When Abraham said to his father and his people, "I boldly renounce what you worship

043:026 Shakir        And when Ibrahim said to his father and his people: Surely I am clear of what you worship,

043:026 Sherali       And call to mind when Abraham said to his father, and his people, `I do, indeed, disown what you worship,

043:026 Yusufali     Behold! Abraham said to his father and his people: "I do indeed clear myself of what ye worship:

043:027

043:027 Khan          "Except Him (i.e. I worship none but Allah Alone) Who did create me, and verily, He will guide me."

043:027 Maulana     Save Him Who created me, for surely He will guide me.

043:027 Pickthal      Save Him Who did create me, for He will surely guide me.

043:027 Rashad       "Only the One who initiated me can guide me."

043:027 Sarwar       except for the One who has created me and will guide me".

043:027 Shakir        Save Him Who created me, for surely He will guide me.

043:027 Sherali       `Except HIM Who created me, and HE will, surely, guide me.'

043:027 Yusufali     "(I worship) only Him Who made me, and He will certainly guide me.”

043:028

043:028 Khan          And he made it [i.e. La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah Alone)] a Word lasting among his offspring (True Monotheism), that they may turn back (i.e. to repent to Allah or receive admonition).

043:028 Maulana     And he made it a word to continue in his posterity that they might return.

043:028 Pickthal      And he made it a word enduring among his seed, that haply they might return.

043:028 Rashad       This example (of Abraham) was rendered an everlasting lesson for subsequent generations; perhaps they redeem their souls.

043:028 Sarwar       God made (belief in one God) an everlasting task for his successors, so that perhaps they would return (to Him).

043:028 Shakir        And he made it a word to continue in his posterity that they may return.

043:028 Sherali       And he left this as a permanent legacy among his posterity, that they might turn to God.

043:028 Yusufali     And he left it as a Word to endure among those who came after him, that they may turn back (to Allah).

043:029 Khan          Nay, but I gave (the good things of this life) to these (polytheists) and their fathers to enjoy, till there came to them the truth (the Qur'an), and a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) making things clear.

043:029 Maulana     Nay! I let these and their fathers enjoy till there came to them the Truth and a Messenger making manifest.

043:029 Pickthal      Nay, but I let these and their fathers enjoy life (only) till there should come unto them the Truth and a messenger making plain.

043:029 Rashad       Indeed, I have given these people and their ancestors sufficient chances, then the truth came to them, and a clarifying messenger.

043:029 Sarwar       In fact, We allowed them and their fathers to enjoy themselves until the truth and a strong Messenger came to them.

043:029 Shakir        Nay! I gave them and their fathers to enjoy until there came to them the truth and a Messenger making manifest (the truth).

043:029 Sherali       Nay, but I bestowed upon these disbelievers and their fathers worldly provision until there comes to them the truth and a Messenger who makes his Message clear.

043:029 Yusufali     Yea, I have given the good things of this life to these (men) and their fathers, until the Truth has come to them, and a messenger making things clear.

043:030

043:030 Khan          And when the truth (this Qur'an) came to them, they (the disbelievers in this Qur'an) said: "This is magic, and we disbelieve therein."

043:030 Maulana     And when the Truth came to them they said: This is enchantment, and surely we are disbelievers in it.

043:030 Pickthal      And now that the Truth hath come unto them they say: This is mere magic, and lo! we are disbelievers therein.

043:030 Rashad       When the truth came to them, they said, "This is magic, and we are disbelievers therein."

043:030 Sarwar       When the truth came to them, they said, "This is magic and we have no faith in it".

043:030 Shakir        And when there came to them the truth they said: This is magic, and surely we are disbelievers in it.

043:030 Sherali       But when the truth came to them they said, `This is sorcery and we do reject it.'

043:030 Yusufali     But when the Truth came to them, they said: "This is sorcery, and we do reject it.”

043:031

043:031 Khan          And they say: "Why is not this Qur'an sent down to some great man of the two towns (Makkah and Ta'if)?"

043:031 Maulana     And they say: Why was not this Qur’an revealed to a man of importance in the two towns?

043:031 Pickthal      And they say: If only this Qur'an had been revealed to some great man of the two towns?

043:031 Rashad       They said, "If only this Quran was sent down through another man from the two communities (Mecca or Yathrib) who is prominent!"

043:031 Sarwar       Then they said, "Why this Quran had not been revealed to a man from either of the two great towns".

043:031 Shakir        And they say: Why was not this Quran revealed to a man of importance in the two towns?

043:031 Sherali       And they say, `Why has not the Qur'an been sent to some great man of the two towns?'

043:031 Yusufali     Also, they say: "Why is not this Qur'an sent down to some leading man in either of the two (chief) cities?”

043:032

043:032 Khan          Is it they who would portion out the Mercy of your Lord? It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in this world, and We raised some of them above others in ranks, so that some may employ others in their work. But the Mercy (Paradise) of your Lord (O Muhammad SAW) is better than the (wealth of this world) which they amass.

043:032 Maulana     Do they apportion the mercy of thy Lord? We portion out among them their livelihood in the life of this world and We exalt some of them above others in rank, that some of them may take others in service. And the mercy of thy Lord is better than that which they amass.

043:032 Pickthal      Is it they who apportion thy Lord's mercy? We have apportioned among them their livelihood in the life of the world, and raised some of them above others in rank that some of them may take labour from others; and the mercy of thy Lord is better than (the wealth) that they amass.

043:032 Rashad       Are they the ones who assign your Lord's mercy? We have assigned their shares in this life, raising some of them above others in ranks, in order to let them serve one another. The mercy from your Lord is far better than any material they may hoard.

043:032 Sarwar       Do they distribute the mercy of your Lord? It is We who have distributed their sustenance in this world and raised the positions of some of them above the others so that they would mock each other. The mercy of your Lord is better than what they can amass.

043:032 Shakir        Will they distribute the mercy of your Lord? We distribute among them their livelihood in the life of this world, and We j have exalted some of them above others in degrees, that some of them may take others in subjection; and the mercy of your Lord is better than what they amass.

043:032 Sherali       Are they then the distributors of the mercy of thy Lord?  It is WE Who distribute among them their livelihood in the present life, and WE exalt some of them above others in degrees of rank, so that some of them may make others subservient to themselves. And the mercy of thy Lord is better than that which they amass.

043:032 Yusufali     Is it they who would portion out the Mercy of thy Lord? It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in the life of this world: and We raise some of them above others in ranks, so that some may command work from others. But the Mercy of thy Lord is better than the (wealth) which they amass.

043:033 Khan          And were it not that all mankind would have become of one community (all disbelievers, desiring worldly life only), We would have provided for those who disbelieve in the Most Beneficent (Allah), silver roofs for their houses, and elevators (and stair-ways, etc. of silver) whereby they ascend,

043:033 Maulana     And were it not that all people would become one (disbelieving) community, We would provide for those who disbelieve in the Beneficent, roofs of silver for their houses and stairs (of silver) by which they ascend,

043:033 Rashad       If it were not that all the people might become one (disbelieving) congregation, we would have granted everyone who disbelieves in the Most Gracious mansions with silver roofs, and stairs upon which they could climb.

043:033 Sarwar       Were it not for the fear that all people would become one in disbelief, We would have made for the disbelievers in the Beneficent God ceilings out of silver and ladders by which they would climb up,

043:033 Shakir        And were it not that all people had been a single nation, We would certainly have assigned to those who disbelieve in the Beneficent Allah (to make) of silver the roofs of their houses and the stairs by which they ascend.

043:033 Sherali       And were it not that all mankind would have become one type of people, WE would have given to those who disbelieve in the Gracious God roofs of silver for their houses, and silver stairways by which they could ascend;

043:033 Yusufali     And were it not that (all) men might become of one (evil) way of life, We would provide, for everyone that blasphemes against (Allah) Most Gracious, silver roofs for their houses and (silver) stair-ways on which to go up,

043:034 Khan          And for their houses, doors (of silver), and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline,

043:034 Pickthal      And for their houses doors (of silver) and couches of silver whereon to recline,

043:034 Yusufali     And (silver) doors to their houses, and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline,

043:035

043:035 Khan          And adornments of gold. Yet all this (i.e. the roofs, doors, stairs, elevators, thrones etc. of their houses) would have been nothing but an enjoyment of this world. And the Hereafter with your Lord is only for the Muttaqun.

043:035 Maulana     And of gold. And all this is naught but a provision of this world’s life; and the Hereafter is with thy Lord only for the dutiful.

043:035 Pickthal      And ornaments of gold. Yet all that would have been but a provision of the life of the world. And the Hereafter with your Lord would have been for those who keep from evil.

043:035 Rashad       Also many ornaments. All these are the temporary materials of this lowly life. The Hereafter - at your Lord - is far better for the righteous.

043:035 Sarwar       and other ornament of gold. All these are only the means of enjoyment in this world, but the pious will receive their reward from your Lord in the life hereafter.

043:035 Shakir        And (other) embellishments of gold; and all this is naught but provision of this world's life, and the hereafter is with your Lord only for those who guard (against evil).

043:035 Sherali       And even of gold, but all that is nothing but a temporary provision of the present life. And the comfort of the Hereafter with thy Lord is for the righteous.

043:035 Yusufali     And also adornments of gold. But all this were nothing but conveniences of the present life: The Hereafter, in the sight of thy Lord is for the Righteous.

043:037 Rashad       Such companions will divert them from the path, yet make them believe that they are guided.

043:037 Sarwar       Satan will prevent them from the right path while they think that they have the right guidance.
