MARYAM (61-70)

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.  


YUSUFALI: Gardens of Eternity, those which (Allah) Most Gracious has promised to His servants in the Unseen: for His promise must (necessarily) come to pass.
PICKTHAL: Gardens of Eden, which the Beneficent hath promised to His slaves in the unseen. Lo! His promise is ever sure of fulfilment -
SHAKIR: The gardens of perpetuity which the Beneficent Allah has promised to His servants while unseen; surely His promise shall come to pass.


YUSUFALI: They will not there hear any vain discourse, but only salutations of Peace: And they will have therein their sustenance, morning and evening.
PICKTHAL: They hear therein no idle talk, but only Peace; and therein they have food for morn and evening.
SHAKIR: They shall not hear therein any vain discourse, but only: Peace, and they shall have their sustenance therein morning and evening.


YUSUFALI: Such is the Garden which We give as an inheritance to those of Our servants who guard against Evil.
PICKTHAL: Such is the Garden which We cause the devout among Our bondmen to inherit.
SHAKIR: This is the garden which We cause those of Our servants to inherit who guard (against evil).


YUSUFALI: (The angels say:) "We descend not but by command of thy Lord: to Him belongeth what is before us and what is behind us, and what is between: and thy Lord never doth forget,-
PICKTHAL: We (angels) come not down save by commandment of thy Lord. Unto Him belongeth all that is before us and all that is behind us and all that is between those two, and thy Lord was never forgetful -
SHAKIR: And we do not descend but by the command of your Lord; to Him belongs whatever is before us and whatever is behind us and whatever is between these, and your Lord is not forgetful.


YUSUFALI: "Lord of the heavens and of the earth, and of all that is between them; so worship Him, and be constant and patient in His worship: knowest thou of any who is worthy of the same Name as He?"
PICKTHAL: Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them! Therefor, worship thou Him and be thou steadfast in His service. Knowest thou one that can be named along with Him?
SHAKIR: The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, so serve Him and be patient in His service. Do you know any one equal to Him?


YUSUFALI: Man says: "What! When I am dead, shall I then be raised up alive?"
PICKTHAL: And man saith: When I am dead, shall I forsooth be brought forth alive?
SHAKIR: And says man: What! when I am dead shall I truly be brought forth alive?


YUSUFALI: But does not man call to mind that We created him before out of nothing?
PICKTHAL: Doth not man remember that We created him before, when he was naught?
SHAKIR: Does not man remember that We created him before, when he was nothing?


YUSUFALI: So, by thy Lord, without doubt, We shall gather them together, and (also) the Evil Ones (with them); then shall We bring them forth on their knees round about Hell;
PICKTHAL: And, by thy Lord, verily We shall assemble them and the devils, then We shall bring them, crouching, around hell.
SHAKIR: So by your Lord! We will most certainly gather them together and the Shaitans, then shall We certainly cause them to be present round hell on their knees.


YUSUFALI: Then shall We certainly drag out from every sect all those who were worst in obstinate rebellion against (Allah) Most Gracious.
PICKTHAL: Then We shall pluck out from every sect whichever of them was most stubborn in rebellion to the Beneficent.
SHAKIR: Then We will most certainly draw forth from every sect of them him who is most exorbitantly rebellious against the Beneficent Allah.


YUSUFALI: And certainly We know best those who are most worthy of being burned therein.
PICKTHAL: And surely We are Best Aware of those most worthy to be burned therein.
SHAKIR: Again We do certainly know best those who deserve most to be burned therein.
