Shakir

For his sake there are angels following one another, before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's commandment; surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition; and when Allah intends evil to a people, there is no averting it, and besides Him they have no protector.

Yusuf Ali

For each (such person) there are (angels) in succession, before and behind him: They guard him by command of Allah. Allah does not change a people's lot unless they change what is in their hearts. But when (once) Allah willeth a people's punishment, there can be no turning it back, nor will they find, besides Him, any to protect.

Abubakar Mahmoud Gumi

(Kowannenku) Yanã da waɗansu malã'iku mãsu maye wa jũna a gaba gare shi da bãya gare shi, sunã tsare shi daga umurnin Allah. Lalle ne Allah bã Ya canja abin da yake ga, mutãne sai sun canja abin da yake ga zukatansu. Kuma idan Allah Ya yi nufin wata azãba game da mutãne, to, bãbu mai mayar da ita, kuma bã su da wani majiɓinci baicin Shi.

Indonesian

Baginya (manusia) ada malaikat-malaikat yang selalu menjaganya bergiliran, dari depan dan belakangnya. Mereka menjaganya atas perintah Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan mengubah keadaan suatu kaum sebelum mereka mengubah keadaan diri mereka sendiri. Dan apabila Allah menghendaki keburukan terhadap suatu kaum, maka tak ada yang dapat menolaknya dan tidak ada pelindung bagi mereka selain Dia.

Polish

Człowiek ma idących bezpośrednio i przed sobą, i za sobą, którzy go ochraniają na rozkaz Boga. Zaprawdę, Bóg nie zmienia tego, co jest w ludziach, dopóki oni sami nie zmienią tego, co jest w nich! A kiedy Bóg chce jakiegoś zła dla ludzi, to nie ma możliwości odwrócenia tego i nie ma dla nich opiekuna poza Nim.

Turkish

Her insan için önünden ve arkasindan takip edenler vardir. Allah'in emrinden dolayi onu gözetirler. Allah bir kavme verdigini, o kavim kendisini bozup degistirmedikçe degistirmez. Allah bir kavme de kötülük murad etti mi, artik onun geri çevrilmesine de imkan yoktur. Onlar için Allah'dan baska bir veli de bulunmaz.

Sahih International

For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah . Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron.

Muhsin Khan

For each (person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him. They guard him by the Command of Allah. Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah). But when Allah wills a people's punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector.

Bubenheim & Elyas

Er hat vor sich und hinter sich Begleiter, die ihn auf Allahs Befehl beschützen. Allah ändert nicht den Zustand eines Volkes, bis sie das ändern, was in ihnen selbst ist. Und wenn Allah einem Volk Böses will, so kann es nicht zurückgewiesen werden. Und sie haben außer Ihm keinen Schutzherrn.

Dr. Ghali

For him are (angels) taking turns (on end) even before him (Literally: between his two hands) and even behind him, preserving him from the Command of Allah. Surely Allah does not change what is in a people until they change what is in themselves; and when Allah wills (to inflict) an odious (treatment) on a people, then there is no turning back for it; and apart from Him, in no way do they have any patron.

Pickthall

For him are angels ranged before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's command. Lo! Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts; and if Allah willeth misfortune for a folk there is none that can repel it, nor have they a defender beside Him.

Azerbaijani

(İnsan üçün) onu öndən və arxadan tə’qib edənlər (mələklər) vardır. Onu (insanı) Allahın əmri ilə qoruyurlar. Hər hansı bir tayfa öz tövrünü (nəfsində olanları) dəyişmədikcə (pozmadıqca), Allah da onun tövrünü (onda olanları, onun əhvalını) dəyişməz. Əgər Allah hər hansı bir qövmə bir pislik yetirmək istəsə, onun qarşısı heç cür alına biməz və Ondan başqa onların heç bir hamisi də olmaz.

Bosnian

Uz svakog od vas su meleki, ispred njega i iza njega – po Allahovu naređenju nad njim bdiju. Allah neće izmijeniti jedan narod dok on sam sebe ne izmijeni. A kad Allah hoće jedan narod kazniti, niko to ne može spriječiti; osim Njega nema mu zaštitnika.

Abul Ala Maududi(With tafsir)

(13:11) There are guardians over everyone, both before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's command.8 Verily Allah does not change a people's condition unless they change their inner selves. And when Allah decides to make a people suffer punishment, no one can avert it. Nor can any be of help to such a people against Allah.9

Alikhan Musayev

Allahın əmri ilə insanın həm önündə, həm də arxasında daim onunla birlikdə olub onu qoruyan mələklər vardır. Həqiqətən də, insanlar nəfslərində olanı dəyişmədikcə, Allah da onlarda olanı dəyişməz. Əgər Allah hər hansı bir qövmə pislik etmək istəsə, heç nə onun qarşısını ala bilməz. Onların Ondan başqa ixtiyar sahibi yoxdur.

Diyanet Isleri

Ardında ve önünde insanoğlunu takip edenler vardır; Allah'ın emriyle onu gözetirler. Bir millet kendini bozmadıkça Allah onların durumunu değiştirmez. Allah bir milletin fenalığını dileyince artık onun önüne geçilmez. Onlar için Allah'tan başka hamide bulunmaz.

Mufti Taqi Usmani

For every one (from among you) there are angels replacing one another, in front of him and behind him, who guard him under the command of Allah. Surely, Allah does not change the condition of a people unless they change themselves. When Allah intends evil for a people, there is no way to turn it back, and for them there is no patron other than Him.

Muhammad Hamidullah

Il [l'homme] a par devant lui et derrière lui des Anges qui se relaient et qui veillent sur lui par ordre d'Allah. En vérité, Allah ne modifie point l'état d'un peuple, tant que les [individus qui le composent] ne modifient pas ce qui est en eux-mêmes. Et lorsqu'Allah veut [infliger] un mal à un peuple, nul ne peut le repousser: ils n'ont en dehors de Lui aucun protecteur.

Hamza Roberto Piccardo

Ci sono [angeli] davanti e dietro [ogni uomo] e vegliano su di lui, per ordine di Allah. In verità, Allah non modifica la realtà di un popolo, finché esso non muta nel suo intimo. Quando Allah vuole un male per un popolo, nessuno può allontanarlo; né avranno, all'infuori di Lui, alcun protettore.

Maranao

Abdullah Muhammad Basmeih

Bagi tiap-tiap seorang ada malaikat penjaganya silih berganti dari hadapannya dan dari belakangnya, yang mengawas dan menjaganya (dari sesuatu bahaya) dengan perintah Allah. Sesungguhnya Allah tidak mengubah apa yang ada pada sesuatu kaum sehingga mereka mengubah apa yang ada pada diri mereka sendiri. Dan apabila Allah menghendaki untuk menimpakan kepada sesuatu kaum bala bencana (disebabkan kesalahan mereka sendiri), maka tiada sesiapapun yang dapat menolak atau menahan apa yang ditetapkanNya itu, dan tidak ada sesiapapun yang dapat menolong dan melindungi mereka selain daripadaNya.

Abdul Haleem

each person has guardian angels before him and behind, watching over him by God’s command. God does not change the condition of a people [for the worse] unless they change what is in themselves, but if He wills harm on a people, no one can ward it off–– apart from Him, they have no protector.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab, The Clear Quran

For each one there are successive angels before and behind, protecting them by Allah’s command. Indeed, Allah would never change a people’s state ˹of favour˺ until they change their own state ˹of faith˺. And if it is Allah’s Will to torment a people, it can never be averted, nor can they find a protector other than Him.
