Surah Al-Ahqaf

Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem

وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَوْ كَانَ خَيْرًا مَّا سَبَقُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَإِذْ لَمْ يَهْتَدُوا بِهِ فَسَيَقُولُونَ هَذَا إِفْكٌ قَدِيمٌ ﴿١١﴾
46/Al-Ahqaf-11: Va kealallazeena kafaroo lillazeena eamanoolav keana haayran mea sabakoonea ilayh(ilayhi), va iz lam yahtadoo bihee fa sayakooloona heazea ifkun kaadeem(kaadeemun).

Imam Iskender Ali Mihr

And those who disbelieved said to those who believed: “If it had been good, they would not have gone ahead of us in it (in respecting it and in believing in it)”. As they fail to reach Hidayet with it (the Qur’ân), they shall say: “This is an ancient lie”.

Abdul Majid Daryabadi

Ali Unal

Those who disbelieve say of those who believe (as another pretext for their rejection of faith in the Qur’an): "If it (the Qur’an) had been something good and useful, those people would not have preceded us in accepting it." And as they (having refused it) have not found guidance through it, they say: "This is a fabrication from ancient times."

Ahmed Ali

Those who deny say of those who believe: "Had there been any good in it they would not have preceded us in coming to it." Since they have not taken guidance from it, they will say: "This is the same old lie."

Ahmed Raza Khan

And the disbelievers said regarding the Muslims, “If there were any good in it, the Muslims would not have surpassed us in achieving it!”; and since they did not receive guidance with it, they will now say, “This is an old slander.”

Amatul Rahman Omar

And those who disbelieve say of those who believe, `If these (- the Qur´ânic doctrines) were any good they would not have taken precedence over us in believing in it.´ Since they themselves have received no guidance from it they say (out of malice), `It is an old lie.´

Arthur John Arberry

The unbelievers say, as regards the believers, 'If it had been aught good, they had not outstripped us to it.' And since they are not guided by it, certainly they will say, 'This is an old calumny!'

Hamid Aziz

And those who disbelieve say concerning those who believe, "If it had been good, they would not have accepted it ahead of us." And as they do not seek to be rightly directed thereby, they say, “It is an old lie".

Hilali & Khan

And those who disbelieve (strong and wealthy) say of those who believe (weak and poor): "Had it (Islamic Monotheism to which Muhammad SAW is inviting mankind) been a good thing, they (weak and poor) would not have preceded us thereto!" And when they have not let themselves be guided by it (this Quran), they say: "This is an ancient lie!"

Maulana Muhammad Ali

Say: See you if it is from Allah, and you disbelieve in it, and a witness from among the Children of Israel has borne witness of one like him, so he believed, while you are big with pride. Surely Allah guides not the iniquitous ones.

Mohammed Habib Shakir

And those who disbelieve say concerning those who believe: If it had been a good, they would not have gone ahead of us therein. And as they do not seek to be rightly directed thereby, they say: It is an old lie.

Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall

And those who disbelieve say of those who believe: If it had been (any) good, they would not have been before us in attaining it. And since they will not be guided by it, they say: This is an ancient lie;

Muhammad Sarwar

The disbelievers have said about the believers, "Had there been anything good in it (Quran), they could not have accepted it before us" Since they do not benefit from its guidance, they say, "It (Quran) is only a fabricated legend".

Qaribullah & Darwish

The unbelievers say of the believers: 'Had it been any good they would not have believed in it before us' And because they are not guided by it they say: 'This is an ancient falsehood'

Yusuf Ali

The Unbelievers say of those who believe: "If (this Message) were a good thing, (such men) would not have gone to it first, before us!" And seeing that they guide not themselves thereby, they will say, "this is an (old,) falsehood!"
