Some said, “We heard a young man, called Abraham, speaking ˹ill˺ of them.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, "We heard a young man mention them who is called Abraham."

— Saheeh International

They demanded, “Bring him before the eyes of the people, so that they may witness ˹his trial˺.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people that they may testify."1

— Saheeh International

They asked, “Was it you who did this to our gods, O  Abraham?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, "Have you done this to our gods, O Abraham?"

He replied ˹sarcastically˺, “No, this one—the biggest of them—did it! So ask them, if they can talk!”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He said, "Rather, this - the largest of them - did it, so ask them, if they should [be able to] speak."

— Saheeh International

So they came back to their senses, saying ˹to one another˺, “You yourselves are truly the wrongdoers!”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So they returned to [blaming] themselves and said [to each other], "Indeed, you are the wrongdoers."

— Saheeh International

Then they ˹quickly˺ regressed to their ˹original˺ mind-set, ˹arguing,˺ “You already know that those ˹idols˺ cannot talk.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Then they reversed themselves,1 [saying], "You have already known that these do not speak!"

— Saheeh International

He rebuked ˹them˺, “Do you then worship—instead of Allah—what can neither benefit nor harm you in any way?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

He said, "Then do you worship instead of Allah that which does not benefit you at all or harm you?

— Saheeh International

Shame on you and whatever you worship instead of Allah! Do you not have any sense?”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Uff1 to you and to what you worship instead of Allah. Then will you not use reason?"

— Saheeh International

They concluded, “Burn him up to avenge your gods, if you must act.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, "Burn him and support your gods - if you are to act."

— Saheeh International

We ordered, “O fire! Be cool and safe for Abraham!”1

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

We [i.e., Allah] said, "O fire, be coolness and safety upon Abraham."

— Saheeh International

They had sought to harm him, but We made them the worst losers.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they intended for him a plan [i.e., harm], but We made them the greatest losers.

— Saheeh International
