তারা জোর দিয়ে আল্লাহর কসম খায় যে, যদি তাদের কাছে কোন নিদর্শন আসে, তবে অবশ্যই তারা বিশ্বাস স্থাপন করবে। আপনি বলে দিনঃ নিদর্শনাবলী তো আল্লাহর কাছেই আছে। হে মুসলমানগণ, তোমাদেরকে কে বলল যে, যখন তাদের কাছে নিদর্শনাবলী আসবে, তখন তারা বিশ্বাস স্থাপন করবেই ?
And they swear their strongest oaths by Allâh, that if there came to them a sign, they would surely believe therein. Say: ”Signs are but with Allâh and what will make you (Muslims) perceive that (even) if it (the sign) came, they will not believe?”

YUSUFALI: They swear their strongest oaths by Allah, that if a (special) sign came to them, by it they would believe. Say: “Certainly (all) signs are in the power of Allah: but what will make you (Muslims) realise that (even) if (special) signs came, they will not believe.”?
PICKTHAL: And they swear a solemn oath by Allah that if there come unto them a portent they will believe therein. Say; Portents are with Allah and (so is) that which telleth you that if such came unto them they would not believe.
SHAKIR: And they swear by Allah with the strongest of their oaths, that if a sign came to them they would most certainly believe in it. Say: Signs are only with Allah; and what should make you know that when it comes they will not believe?
KHALIFA: They swore by GOD, solemnly, that if a miracle came to them, they would surely believe. Say, “Miracles come only from GOD.” For all you know, if a miracle did come to them, they would continue to disbelieve.
