Pickthal: And if misfortune touch a man he crieth unto Us, (while reclining) on his side, or sitting or standing, but when We have relievedhim of the misfortune he goeth his way as though he had not cried unto Usbecause of a misfortune that afflicted him.

Shakir: And when affliction touches a man, he calls on Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove hisaffliction from him, he passes on as though he had never calledon Us on account of an affliction that touched him; thus thatwhich they do is made fair-seeming to the extravagant.
Yusuf Ali: When trouble toucheth a man, He crieth unto Us (in all postures)- lying down on his side, or sitting, or standing.

Pickthal: And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say: Bring a Lecture other than this, orchange it.

Shakir: And when Our clear communications are recited to them, those who hope not for Our meeting say: Bring a Quran otherthan this or change it. Say: It does not beseem me that I shouldchange it of myself; I follow naught but what is revealed to me;surely I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the punishment of a mightyday.
Yusuf Ali: But when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, Say: "Bring us a readingother than this, or change this," Say: "It is not for me, of my own accord,to change it: I follow naught but what is revealed unto me: if I were todisobey my Lord, I should myself fear the penalty of a Great Day (tocome)."

Ayah: 16
Arabic: قُل لَّوْ شَاء اللّهُ مَا تَلَوْتُهُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَلاَ أَدْرَاكُم بِهِ فَقَدْ لَبِثْتُ فِيكُمْ عُمُرًا مِّن قَبْلِهِ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ
Pickthal: Say: If Allah had so willed I should not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you. I dwelt among you a wholelifetime before it (came to me). Have ye then no sense?
Shakir: Say: If Allah had desired (otherwise) I would not have recited it to you, nor would He have taught it to you; indeed Ihave lived a lifetime among you before it; do you not thenunderstand?
Yusuf Ali: Say: "If Allah had so willed, I should not have rehearsed it to you, nor would He have made it known to you. A whole life-time before thishave I tarried amongst you: will ye not then understand?"

Ayah: 17
Arabic: فَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللّهِ كَذِبًا أَوْ كَذَّبَ بِآيَاتِهِ إِنَّهُ لاَ يُفْلِحُ الْمُجْرِمُونَ
Pickthal: Who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah and denieth His revelations? Lo! the guilty never are successful.
Shakir: Who is then more unjust than who forges a lie against Allah or (who) gives the lie to His communications? Surely theguilty shall not be successful.
Yusuf Ali: Who doth more wrong than such as forge a lie against Allah, or deny His Signs? But never will prosper those who sin.

Ayah: 18
Arabic: وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللّهِ مَا لاَ يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلاَ يَنفَعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ هَـؤُلاء شُفَعَاؤُنَا عِندَ اللّهِ قُلْ أَتُنَبِّئُونَ اللّهَ بِمَا لاَ يَعْلَمُ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَلاَ فِي الأَرْضِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
Pickthal: They worship beside Allah that which neither hurteth them nor profiteth them, and they say: These are our intercessors with Allah. Say:Would ye inform Allah of (something) that He knoweth not in the heavens orin the earth? Praised be He and High Exalted above all that ye associate(with Him)!
Shakir: And they serve beside Allah what can neither harm them nor profit them, and they say: These are our intercessors withAllah. Say: Do you (presume to) inform Allah of what Heknows not in the heavens and the earth? Glory be to Him, andsupremely exalted is He above what they set up (with Him).
Yusuf Ali: They serve, besides Allah, things that hurt them not nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allah." Say: "Do yeindeed inform Allah of something He knows not, in the heavens or on earth?-Glory to Him! and far is He above the partners they ascribe (to Him)!"

Ayah: 19
Arabic: وَمَا كَانَ النَّاسُ إِلاَّ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً فَاخْتَلَفُواْ وَلَوْلاَ كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَتْ مِن رَّبِّكَ لَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُمْ فِيمَا فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ
Pickthal: Mankind were but one community; then they differed; and had it not been for a word that had already gone forth from thy Lord it had beenjudged between them in respect of that wherein they differ.
Shakir: And people are naught but a single nation, so they disagree; and had not a word already gone forth from your Lord,the matter would have certainly been decided between them inrespect of that concerning which they disagree.
Yusuf Ali: Mankind was but one nation, but differed (later). Had it not been for a word that went forth before from thy Lord, their differenceswould have been settled between them.

Ayah: 20
Arabic: وَيَقُولُونَ لَوْلاَ أُنزِلَ عَلَيْهِ آيَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ فَقُلْ إِنَّمَا الْغَيْبُ لِلّهِ فَانْتَظِرُواْ إِنِّي مَعَكُم مِّنَ الْمُنتَظِرِينَ
Pickthal: And they will say: If only a portent were sent down upon him from his Lord! Then say, (O Muhammad): The Unseen belongeth to Allah. Sowait! Lo! I am waiting with you.
Shakir: And they say: Why is not a sign sent to him from his Lord? Say: The unseen is only for Allah; therefore wait-- surely Itoo, with you am of those who wait.
Yusuf Ali: They say: "Why is not a sign sent down to him from his Lord?" Say: "The Unseen is only for Allah (to know), then wait ye: I too will waitwith you."

Ayah: 21
Arabic: وَإِذَا أَذَقْنَا النَّاسَ رَحْمَةً مِّن بَعْدِ ضَرَّاء مَسَّتْهُمْ إِذَا لَهُم مَّكْرٌ فِي آيَاتِنَا قُلِ اللّهُ أَسْرَعُ مَكْرًا إِنَّ رُسُلَنَا يَكْتُبُونَ مَا تَمْكُرُونَ
Pickthal: And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy after some adversity which had afflicted them, behold! they have some plot against Ourrevelations. Say: Allah is more swift in plotting. Lo! Our messengers writedown that which ye plot.
Shakir: And when We make people taste of mercy after an affliction touches them, lo ! they devise plans against Our communication. Say: Allah is quicker to plan; surely Our messengers writedown what you plan.
Yusuf Ali: When We make mankind taste of some mercy after adversity hath touched them, behold! they take to plotting against Our Signs! Say:"Swifter to plan is Allah!" Verily, Our messengers record all the plots thatye make!

Ayah: 22
Arabic: هُوَ الَّذِي يُسَيِّرُكُمْ فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ حَتَّى إِذَا كُنتُمْ فِي الْفُلْكِ وَجَرَيْنَ بِهِم بِرِيحٍ طَيِّبَةٍ وَفَرِحُواْ بِهَا جَاءتْهَا رِيحٌ عَاصِفٌ وَجَاءهُمُ الْمَوْجُ مِن كُلِّ مَكَانٍ وَظَنُّواْ أَنَّهُمْ أُحِيطَ بِهِمْ دَعَوُاْ اللّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ لَئِنْ أَنجَيْتَنَا مِنْ هَـذِهِ لَنَكُونَنِّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ
Pickthal: He it is Who maketh you to go on the land and the sea till, when ye are in the ships and they sail with them with a fair breeze andthey are glad therein, a storm-wind reacheth them and the wave cometh untothem from every side and they deem that they are overwhelmed therein;(then) they cry unto Allah, making their faith pure for Him only: If Thoudeliver us from this, we truly will be of the thankful.
Shakir: He it is Who makes you travel by land and sea; until when you are in the ships, and they sail on with them in a pleasantbreeze, and they rejoice, a violent wind overtakes them and thebillows surge in on them from all sides, and they become certainthat they are encompassed about, they pray to Allah, beingsincere to Him in obedience: If Thou dost deliver us from this,we will most certainly be of the grateful ones.
Yusuf Ali: He it is Who enableth you to traverse through land and sea; so that ye even board ships;- they sail with them with a favourable wind, andthey rejoice thereat; then comes a stormy wind and the waves come to themfrom all sides, and they think they are being overwhelmed: they cry untoAllah, sincerely offering (their) duty unto Him saying, "If thou dost deliverus from this, we shall truly show our gratitude!"

Ayah: 23
Arabic: فَلَمَّا أَنجَاهُمْ إِذَا هُمْ يَبْغُونَ فِي الأَرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا بَغْيُكُمْ عَلَى أَنفُسِكُم مَّتَاعَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا ثُمَّ إِلَينَا مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَنُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
Pickthal: Yet when He hath delivered them, behold! they rebel in the earth wrongfully. O mankind! Your rebellion is only against yourselves. (Yehave) enjoyment of the life of the world; then unto Us is your return andWe shall proclaim unto you what ye used to do.
Shakir: But when He delivers them, lo! they are unjustly rebellious in the earth. O men! your rebellion is against your ownsouls-- provision (only) of this world's life-- then to Us shall beyour return, so We will inform you of what you did.
Yusuf Ali: But when he delivereth them, behold! they transgress insolently through the earth in defiance of right! O mankind! yourinsolence is against your own souls,- an enjoyment of the life of thepresent: in the end, to Us is your return, and We shall show you the truthof all that ye did.

Ayah: 24
