|Abdullah Yusuf Ali's Translation
||Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthall's
|067.001. Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power;-
||067.001. Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things.
|067.002. He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving;-
||067.002. Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving,
|067.003. He Who created the seven heavens one above another: No want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (God) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw?
||067.003. Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts ?
|067.004. Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out.
||067.004. Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim.
|067.005. And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.
||067.005. And verily We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame.
|067.006. For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such), Destination.
||067.006. And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey's end!
|067.007. When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth,
||067.007. When they are flung therein they hear its roaring as it boileth up,
|067.008. Almost bursting with fury: Every time a Group is cast therein, its Keepers will ask, "Did no Warner come to you?"
||067.008. As it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there unto you no warner ?
|067.009. They will say: "Yes indeed; a Warner did come to us, but we rejected him and said, 'God never sent down any (Message): ye are nothing but an egregious delusion!'"
||067.009. They say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error.
|067.010. They will further say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!"
||067.010. And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames.
