053:006 Yusufali Endued with Wisdom: for he appeared (in stately form);
053:007 Khan While he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] was in the highest part of the horizon,
053:007 Maulana And he is in the highest part of the horizon.
053:007 Pickthal When he was on the uppermost horizon.

053:007 Sherali And HE revealed His Word when he was on the uppermost horizon.
053:007 Yusufali While he was in the highest part of the horizon:
053:008 Khan Then he [Jibrael (Gabriel)] approached and came closer,
053:008 Maulana Then he drew near, drew nearer yet,
053:008 Pickthal Then he drew nigh and came down
053:008 Rashad He drew nearer by moving down.
053:008 Sarwar He (Gabriel) then came nearer and nearer.
053:008 Shakir Then he drew near, then he bowed

053:008 Yusufali Then he approached and came closer,
053:009 Khan And was at a distance of two bows' length or (even) nearer,

053:009 Yusufali And was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer;
053:010 Khan So did (Allah) convey the Inspiration to His slave [Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)].
053:010 Maulana So He revealed to His servant what He revealed.

053:012 Khan Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad SAW) about what he saw [during the Mi'raj: (Ascent of the Prophet SAW over the seven heavens)].
053:012 Maulana Do you then dispute with him as to what he saw?
053:012 Pickthal Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he seeth?
053:012 Rashad Are you doubting what he saw?
053:012 Sarwar Will you then argue with him about what he saw?.
053:012 Shakir What! do you then dispute with him as to what he saw?
053:012 Sherali Will you, then, dispute with him about what he saw?
053:012 Yusufali Will ye then dispute with him concerning what he saw?
053:013 Khan And indeed he (Muhammad SAW) saw him [Jibrael (Gabriel)] at a second descent (i.e. another time).
053:013 Maulana And certainly he saw Him in another descent,
053:013 Pickthal And verily he saw him yet another time
053:013 Rashad He saw him in another descent.
053:013 Sarwar He certainly saw him (Gabriel) during his other ascent
053:013 Shakir And certainly he saw him in another descent,
053:013 Sherali And, certainly, he saw him a second time;
053:013 Yusufali For indeed he saw him at a second descent,
053:014 Khan Near Sidrat-ul-Muntaha [lote-tree of the utmost boundary (beyond which none can pass)],
053:014 Maulana At the farthest lote-tree.
053:014 Pickthal By the lote-tree of the utmost boundary,

053:015 Sherali Near which is the Garden of Eternal abode.
053:015 Yusufali Near it is the Garden of Abode.
053:016 Khan When that covered the lote-tree which did cover it!
053:016 Maulana When that which covers covered the lote-tree;
053:016 Pickthal When that which shroudeth did enshroud the lote-tree,
053:016 Rashad The whole place was overwhelmed.
053:016 Sarwar When the tree was covered with a covering,
053:016 Shakir When that which covers covered the lote-tree;
053:016 Sherali This was when that, which covers, covered the lote-tree.
053:016 Yusufali Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded (in mystery unspeakable!)
053:017 Khan The sight (of Prophet Muhammad SAW) turned not aside (right or left), nor it transgressed beyond (the) limit (ordained for it).
053:017 Maulana The eye turned not aside, nor did it exceed the limit.
053:017 Pickthal The eye turned not aside nor yet was overbold.
053:017 Rashad The eyes did not waver, nor go blind.
053:017 Sarwar (Muhammad's) eyes did not deceive him, nor did they lead him to falsehood.
053:017 Shakir The eye did not turn aside, nor did it exceed the limit.
053:017 Sherali The eye deviated not, nor did it wander.
053:017 Yusufali (His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong!
053:018 Khan Indeed he (Muhammad SAW) did see, of the Greatest Signs, of his Lord (Allah).
053:018 Maulana Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord.
053:018 Pickthal Verily he saw one of the greater revelations of his Lord.
053:018 Rashad He saw great signs of his Lord.
053:018 Sarwar He certainly saw the greatest (signs) of the existence of his Lord.
053:018 Shakir Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord.
053:018 Sherali Surely, he saw the greatest of the Signs of his Lord.
053:018 Yusufali For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest!
053:019 Khan Have you then considered Al-Lat, and Al-'Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs)
053:019 Maulana Have you then considered Lat and ‘Uzza,
053:019 Pickthal Have ye thought upon Al-Lat and Al-'Uzza
053:019 Rashad Compare this with the female idols Allaat and Al-`Uzzah.
053:019 Sarwar (Can anything as such be considered true) of al-Lat, al-Uzza,
053:019 Shakir Have you then considered the Lat and the Uzza,
053:019 Sherali Now tell me about Lát and Uzzú;
053:019 Yusufali Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza,
053:020 Khan And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?
053:020 Maulana And another, the third, Manat?
053:020 Pickthal And Manat, the third, the other?
053:020 Rashad And Manaat, the third one.
053:020 Sarwar and your third idol al-Manat (whom you considered as God's daughters)?.
053:020 Shakir And Manat, the third, the last?
053:020 Sherali And Manát, the third one, another goddess.
053:020 Yusufali And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
053:021 Khan Is it for you the males and for Him the females?
053:021 Maulana Are the males for you and for Him the females?
053:021 Pickthal Are yours the males and His the females?
053:021 Rashad Do you have sons, while He has these as daughters?
053:021 Sarwar Do sons belong to you and daughters to God?.
053:021 Shakir What! for you the males and for Him the females!
053:021 Sherali `What ! for you the males and for Him the females?'
053:021 Yusufali What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female?
053:022 Khan That indeed is a division most unfair!
053:022 Maulana This indeed is an unjust division!
053:022 Pickthal That indeed were an unfair division!
053:022 Rashad What a disgraceful distribution!
053:022 Sarwar This is an unfair distinction!
053:022 Shakir This indeed is an unjust division!
053:022 Sherali That, indeed is an unfair division.
053:022 Yusufali Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair!
053:023 Khan They are but names which you have named, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow but a guess and that which they themselves desire, whereas there has surely come to them the Guidance from their Lord!
053:023 Maulana They are naught but names which you have named, you and your fathers -- Allah has sent no authority for them. They follow but conjecture and what (their) souls desire. And certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord.
053:023 Pickthal They are but names which ye have named, ye and your fathers, for which Allah hath revealed no warrant. They follow but a guess and that which (they) themselves desire. And now the guidance from their Lord hath come unto them.
053:023 Rashad These are but names that you made up, you and your forefathers. GOD never authorized such a blasphemy. They follow conjecture, and personal desire, when the true guidance has come to them herein from their Lord.
053:023 Sarwar These are only names given by yourselves and your fathers. God has not given them any authority. They, (unbelievers), only follow mere conjecture and the desires of their souls, even though guidance has already come to them from their Lord.
053:023 Shakir They are naught but names which you have named, you and your fathers; Allah has not sent for them any authority. They follow naught but conjecture and the low desires which (their) souls incline to; and certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord.
053:023 Sherali These are but names which you have named - you and your fathers - for which ALLAH has sent down no authority. They follow naught but conjecture and what their souls desire, while there has already come to them guidance from their Lord.
053:023 Yusufali These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord!
053:024 Khan Or shall man have what he wishes?
053:024 Maulana Or shall man have what he wishes?
053:024 Maulana So they said: What! A single mortal from among us! Shall we follow him? We shall then be in sure error and distress.
053:024 Pickthal Or shall man have what he coveteth?
053:024 Rashad What is it that the human being desires?
053:024 Sarwar Can the human being have whatever he wishes?.
053:024 Shakir Or shall man have what he wishes?
053:024 Sherali Can man have whatever he desires?
053:024 Yusufali Nay, shall man have (just) anything he hankers after?
053:025 Khan But to Allah belongs the last (Hereafter) and the first (the world).
053:025 Maulana But for Allah is the Hereafter and the former (life).
053:025 Maulana Has the reminder been sent to him from among us? Nay, he is an insolent liar!
053:025 Pickthal But unto Allah belongeth the after (life), and the former.
053:025 Rashad To GOD belongs both the Hereafter, and this world.
053:025 Sarwar All that is in the life to come and all that is in this life belongs only to God.
053:025 Shakir Nay! for Allah is the hereafter and the former (life).
053:025 Sherali Nay, to ALLAH belong the Hereafter and this world.
053:025 Yusufali But it is to Allah that the End and the Beginning (of all things) belong.
053:026 Section 2: Nothing avails against Truth
053:026 Khan And there are many angels in the heavens, whose intercession will avail nothing except after Allah has given leave for whom He wills and pleases.
053:026 Maulana And how many angels are in the heavens, whose intercession avails naught except after Allah gives permission to whom He pleases and chooses.
053:026 Pickthal And how many angels are in the heavens whose intercession availeth naught save after Allah giveth leave to whom He chooseth and accepteth.
053:026 Rashad Not even the angels in heaven possess authority to intercede. The only ones permitted by GOD are those who act in accordance with His will and His approval.
053:026 Sarwar There are many angels in the heavens whose intercession will be of no benefit unless God grants such permission to whichever of them He wants.
053:026 Shakir And how many an angel is there in the heavens whose intercession does not avail at all except after Allah has given permission to whom He pleases and chooses.
053:026 Sherali And how many an angel is there in the heavens, but their intercession shall be of no avail, except after ALLAH gives permission to whomsoever HE wills and pleases.
053:026 Yusufali How many-so-ever be the angels in the heavens, their intercession will avail nothing except after Allah has given leave for whom He pleases and that he is acceptable to Him.
053:027 Khan Verily, those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.
053:027 Maulana Surely those who believe not in the Hereafter name the angels with female names.
053:027 Pickthal Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter who name the angels with the names of females.
053:027 Rashad Those who disbelieve in the Hereafter have given the angels feminine names.
053:027 Sarwar Only those who do not believe in the life hereafter call the angels, females. They have no knowledge about it.
053:027 Shakir Most surely they who do not believe in the hereafter name the angels with female names.
053:027 Sherali Those, who believe not in the Hereafter, give the angels female names;
053:027 Yusufali Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names.
053:028 Khan While they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and verily, guess is no substitute for the truth.
053:028 Maulana And they have no knowledge of it. They follow but conjecture, and surely conjecture avails naught against Truth.
053:028 Pickthal And they have no knowledge thereof. They follow but a guess, and lo! a guess can never take the place of the truth.
053:028 Rashad They had no knowledge about this; they only conjectured. Conjecture is no substitute for the truth.
053:028 Sarwar They only follow mere conjecture which can never sufficiently replace the Truth.
053:028 Shakir And they have no knowledge of it; they do not follow anything but conjecture, and surely conjecture does not avail against the truth at all.
053:028 Sherali But they have no knowledge thereof. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails naught against truth.
053:028 Yusufali But they have no knowledge therein. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails nothing against Truth.
053:029 Khan Therefore withdraw (O Muhammad SAW) from him who turns away from Our Reminder (this Qur'an) and desires nothing but the life of this world.
053:029 Maulana So shun him who turns his back upon Our Reminder, and desires nothing but this world’s life.
053:029 Pickthal Then withdraw (O Muhammad) from him who fleeth from Our remembrance and desireth but the life of the world.
053:029 Rashad You shall disregard those who turn away from our message, and become preoccupied with this worldly life.
053:029 Sarwar (Muhammad), stay away from those who turn away from Our guidance and who do not desire anything except the worldly life.
053:029 Shakir Therefore turn aside from him who turns his back upon Our reminder and does not desire anything but this world's life.
053:029 Sherali So turn away from him who turns his back upon Our remembrance, and seeks nothing but the life of this world.
053:029 Yusufali Therefore shun those who turn away from Our Message and desire nothing but the life of this world.
053:030 Khan That is what they could reach of knowledge. Verily, your Lord it is He Who knows best him who goes astray from His Path, and He knows best him who receives guidance.
053:030 Maulana That is their goal of knowledge. Surely thy Lord knows best him who strays from His path and He knows best him who goes aright.
053:030 Pickthal Such is their sum of knowledge. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth, and He is Best Aware of him whom goeth right.
053:030 Rashad This is the extent of their knowledge. Your Lord is fully aware of those who strayed away from His path, and He is fully aware of those who are guided.
053:030 Sarwar This is what the extent of their knowledge amounts to. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His path and who has been rightly guided.
053:030 Shakir That is their goal of knowledge; surely your Lord knows best him who goes astray from His path and He knows best him who follows the right direction.
053:030 Sherali That is the utmost limit of their knowledge. Verily, thy Lord knows best him who strays away from His way, and HE knows best him who follows guidance.
053:030 Yusufali That is as far as knowledge will reach them. Verily thy Lord knoweth best those who stray from His Path, and He knoweth best those who receive guidance.
053:031 Khan And to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, that He may requite those who do evil with that which they have done (i.e. punish them in Hell), and reward those who do good, with what is best (i.e. Paradise).
053:031 Maulana And Allah’s is whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil for that which they do, and reward those who do good with goodness.
053:031 Pickthal And unto Allah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil with that which they have done, and reward those who do good with goodness.
053:031 Rashad To GOD belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. He will requite those who commit evil for their works, and will reward the righteous for their righteousness.
053:031 Sarwar To God belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. In the end God will re-compense the evil doers for their deeds and reward the righteous ones for their deeds.
053:031 Shakir And Allah's is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, that He may reward those who do evil according to what they do, and (that) He may reward those who do good with goodness.
053:031 Sherali And to ALLAH belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, that HE may requite those who do evil according to what they have wrought and reward those who do good with what is best;
053:031 Yusufali Yea, to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: so that He rewards those who do evil, according to their deeds, and He rewards those who do good, with what is best.
053:032 Khan Those who avoid great sins (see the Qur'an, Verses: 6:153) and Al-Fawahish (illegal sexual intercourse, etc.) except the small faults, verily, your Lord is of vast forgiveness. He knows you well when He created you from the earth (Adam), and when you were fetuses in your mothers' wombs. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows best him who fears Allah and keep his duty to Him [i.e. those who are Al- Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2)].
053:032 Maulana Those who avoid the great sins and the indecencies, but the passing idea -- surely thy Lord is Liberal in Forgiving. He knows best when He brings you forth from the earth and when you are embryos in the wombs of your mothers; so ascribe not purity to yourselves. He knows him best who guards against evil.
053:032 Pickthal Those who avoid enormities of sin and abominations, save the unwilled offences - (for them) lo! thy Lord is of vast mercy. He is Best Aware of you (from the time) when He created you from the earth, and when ye were hidden in the bellies of your mothers. Therefor ascribe not purity unto yourselves. He is Best Aware of him who wardeth off (evil).
053:032 Rashad They avoid gross sins and transgressions, except for minor offenses. Your Lord's forgiveness is immense. He has been fully aware of you since He initiated you from the earth, and while you were embryos in your mothers' bellies. Therefore, do not exalt yourselves; He is fully aware of the righteous.
053:032 Sarwar Those who stay away from grave sins and indecency (should know that) for their trivial sins your Lord's forgiveness is vast. He knows best about you. When He created you from the earth and when you were embryos in your mother's wombs. Do not consider yourselves very great. God knows best who is the most righteous person.
053:032 Shakir Those who keep aloof from the great sins and the indecencies but the passing idea; surely your Lord is liberal in forgiving. He knows you best when He brings you forth from the earth and when you are embryos in the wombs of your mothers; therefore do not attribute purity to your souls; He knows him best who guards (against evil).
053:032 Sherali Those who shun the grave sins and all indecencies except minor faults. Verily, thy Lord is Master of vast forgiveness. HE knows you well from the time when HE created you from the earth, and when you were embryos in the bellies of your mothers. So ascribe not purity to yourselves. HE knows him best who is truly righteous.
053:032 Yusufali Those who avoid great sins and shameful deeds, only (falling into) small faults,- verily thy Lord is ample in forgiveness. He knows you well when He brings you out of the earth, And when ye are hidden in your mothers' wombs. Therefore justify not yourselves: He knows best who it is that guards against evil.
053:033 Section 3: Allah’s Power manifested in destruction of Falsehood
053:033 Khan Did you (O Muhammad SAW) observe him who turned away (from Islam).
053:033 Maulana Seest thou him who turns back,
053:033 Pickthal Didst thou (O Muhammad) observe him who turned away,
053:033 Rashad Have you noted the one who turned away?
053:033 Sarwar (Muhammad), have you ever seen the one who has turned away (from guidance),
053:033 Shakir Have you then seen him who turns his back?
053:033 Sherali Seest thou him who turns away from guidance,
053:033 Yusufali Seest thou one who turns back,
053:034 Khan And gave a little, then stopped (giving)?
053:034 Maulana And gives a little, then withholds?
053:034 Pickthal And gave a little, then was grudging?
053:034 Rashad Rarely did he give to charity, and then very little.
053:034 Sarwar and grudgingly spends very little for the cause of God?.
053:034 Shakir And gives a little and (then) withholds.
