আপনি বলে দিনঃ যদি আমার কাছে তা থাকত, যা তোমরা শীঘ্র দাবী করছ, তবে আমার ও তোমাদের পারস্পরিক বিবাদ কবেই চুকে যেত। আল্লাহ জালেমদের সম্পর্কে যথেষ্ট পরিমাণে অবহিত।
Say: ”If I had that which you are asking for impatiently (the torment), the matter would have been settled at once between me and you, but Allâh knows best the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.).”
قُل لَّوْ أَنَّ عِندِي مَا تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ بِهِ لَقُضِيَ الأَمْرُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ وَاللّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِالظَّالِمِينَ
Qul law anna AAindee ma tastaAAjiloona bihi laqudiya al-amru baynee wabaynakum waAllahu aAAlamu bialththalimeena
YUSUFALI: Say: “If what ye would see hastened were in my power, the matter would be settled at once between you and me. But Allah knoweth best those who do wrong.”
PICKTHAL: Say: If I had that for which ye are impatient, then would the case (ere this) have been decided between me and you. Allah is Best Aware of the wrong-doers.
SHAKIR: Say: If that which you desire to hasten were with me, the matter would have certainly been decided between you and me; and Allah best knows the unjust.
KHALIFA: Say, “If I controlled the retribution you challenge me to bring, the whole matter would have been terminated long ago. GOD knows best who the wicked are.”
