They will say, “Glory be to You! It was not right for ˹others like˺ us to take any lords besides You,1 but You allowed enjoyment for them and their forefathers ˹for so long˺ that they forgot ˹Your˺ remembrance and became a doomed people.”
— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
They will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for us to take besides You any allies [i.e., protectors]. But You provided comforts for them and their fathers until they forgot the message and became a people ruined."
— Saheeh International
