Qarib: And so they departed, whispering to one another:
Sarwar: They all left, whispering to one another,
Shakir: So they went, while they consulted together secretly,
Pickthall: So they went off, saying one unto another in low tones:
Yusufali: So they departed, conversing in secret low tones, (saying)-
أَنْ لَا يَدْخُلَنَّهَا الْيَوْمَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِسْكِينٌ ﴿۲۴﴾

Qarib: (Whereupon) the best among them said: 'Did I not say to you to exalt (Allah)? '
Sarwar: A reasonable one among them said, "Did I not tell you that you should glorify God?"
Shakir: The best of them said: Did I not say to you, Why do you not glorify (Allah)?

عَسَى رَبُّنَا أَنْ يُبْدِلَنَا خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِنَّا إِلَى رَبِّنَا رَاغِبُونَ ﴿۳۲﴾
Qarib: It may be that our Lord will give us better than it in exchange. To our Lord we humbly turn. '

Shakir: That you have surely therein what you choose?
Pickthall: That ye shall indeed have all that ye choose?

أَمْ لَكُمْ أَيْمَانٌ عَلَيْنَا بَالِغَةٌ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّ لَكُمْ لَمَا تَحْكُمُونَ ﴿۳۹﴾

خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ وَقَدْ كَانُوا يُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ وَهُمْ سَالِمُونَ ﴿۴۳﴾
Qarib: Their eyes will be humbled, and humiliation shall spread over them for they were already ordered to prostrate themselves when they were undiminished.
Sarwar: Their eyes will be lowered and disgrace will cover them. They had certainly been told to prostrate themselves before God when they were safe and sound.
Shakir: Their looks cast down, abasement shall overtake them; and they were called upon to make obeisance indeed while yet they were safe
Pickthall: With eyes downcast, abasement stupefying them. And they had been summoned to prostrate themselves while they were yet unhurt.

فَذَرْنِي وَمَنْ يُكَذِّبُ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُمْ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿۴۴﴾
Qarib: Therefore, leave Me with he who belied this discourse. We will draw them on little by little from where they do not know.

Shakir: So leave Me and him who rejects this announcement; We will overtake them by degrees, from whence they perceive not:
Pickthall: Leave Me (to deal) with those who give the lie to this pronouncement. We shall lead them on by steps from whence they know not.
Yusufali: Then leave Me alone with such as reject this Message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not.
وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ ﴿۴۵﴾
Qarib: I shall respite them, My stratagem is firm.
Sarwar: I shall give them respite, however, My plan is so strong that they will never be able to escape from it.
Shakir: And I do bear with them, surely My plan is firm
Pickthall: Yet I bear with them, for lo! My scheme is firm.
Yusufali: A (long) respite will I grant them: truly powerful is My Plan.
أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ أَجْرًا فَهُمْ مِنْ مَغْرَمٍ مُثْقَلُونَ ﴿۴۶﴾
Qarib: Or, do you ask them for a wage, so that they are burdened with debt?
Sarwar: (Muhammad), do you ask for your preaching any recompense which is too heavy a price for them to pay?

Pickthall: Or is the Unseen theirs that they can write (thereof)?
Yusufali: Or that the Unseen is in their hands, so that they can write it down?
فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تَكُنْ كَصَاحِبِ الْحُوتِ إِذْ نَادَى وَهُوَ مَكْظُومٌ ﴿۴۸﴾
Qarib: So be patient with the judgement of your Lord and do not be like the Companion of the Whale (Jonah), when he called out choking inwardly.
Sarwar: Exercise patience until the promise of your Lord (to punish the unbelievers) comes true. Do not be like Jonah (who left his people without the permission of God; he wanted them to be punished immediately),
Shakir: So wait patiently for the judgment of your Lord, and be not like the companion of the fish, when he cried while he was in distress
Pickthall: But wait thou for thy Lord's decree, and be not like him of the fish, who cried out in despair.
Yusufali: So wait with patience for the Command of thy Lord, and be not like the Companion of the Fish,- when he cried out in agony.
لَوْلَا أَنْ تَدَارَكَهُ نِعْمَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ لَنُبِذَ بِالْعَرَاءِ وَهُوَ مَذْمُومٌ ﴿۴۹﴾
Qarib: Had the favor of his Lord not come upon him, he would have been blamed, cast upon the shore.
Sarwar: and who cried (for help) to his Lord, while imprisoned and helpless inside the fish. Had it not been for a favor from his Lord, he would have been left out in the open, deserving blame for his shortcomings.
Shakir: Were it not that favor from his Lord had overtaken him, he would certainly have been cast down upon the naked Found while he was blamed
Pickthall: Had it not been that favour from his Lord had reached him he surely had been cast into the wilderness while he was reprobate.
Yusufali: Had not Grace from his Lord reached him, he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore, in disgrace.
فَاجْتَبَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَجَعَلَهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ ﴿۵۰﴾
Qarib: But his Lord had chosen him and He placed him among the righteous.
Sarwar: But his Lord chose him as His Prophet and made him one of the righteous ones.
Shakir: Then his Lord chose him, and He made him of the good
Pickthall: But his Lord chose him and placed him among the righteous.
Yusufali: Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the Company of the Righteous.
وَإِنْ يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ ﴿۵۱﴾
Qarib: When the unbelievers hear the Reminder, they nearly strike you down with their glances, and say: 'Surely, he is mad! '
Sarwar: When the disbelievers listen to you reciting the Quran they almost try to destroy you with their piercing eyes. Then they say, "He is certainly insane".
Shakir: And those who disbelieve would almost smite you with their eyes when they hear the reminder, and they say: Most surely he is mad
Pickthall: And lo! those who disbelieve would fain disconcert thee with their eyes when they hear the Reminder, and they say: Lo! he is indeed mad;
Yusufali: And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the Message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!"
وَمَا هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِلْعَالَمِينَ ﴿۵۲﴾
Qarib: But it is nothing other than a Reminder for all the worlds.
Sarwar: The Quran is nothing but a reminder from God to mankind.
Shakir: And it is naught but a reminder to the nations
Pickthall: When it is naught else than a Reminder to creation.
Yusufali: But it is nothing less than a Message to all the worlds.
