Now put your hand through ˹the opening of˺ your collar, it will come out ˹shining˺ white, unblemished.1 ˹These are two˺ of nine signs for Pharaoh and his people.2 They have truly been a rebellious people.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But when Our enlightening signs came to them, they said, “This is pure magic.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But when there came to them Our visible signs, they said, "This is obvious magic."

— Saheeh International

And, although their hearts were convinced the signs were true, they still denied them wrongfully and arrogantly. See then what was the end of the corruptors!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they rejected them, while their [inner] selves were convinced thereof, out of injustice and haughtiness. So see how was the end of the corrupters.

Solomon’s forces of jinn, humans, and birds were rallied for him, perfectly organized.

So Solomon smiled in amusement at her words, and prayed, “My Lord! Inspire me to ˹always˺ be thankful for Your favours which You have blessed me and my parents with, and to do good deeds that please you. Admit me, by Your mercy, into ˹the company of˺ Your righteous servants.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So [Solomon] smiled, amused at her speech, and said, "My Lord, enable me1 to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to do righteousness of which You approve. And admit me by Your mercy into [the ranks of] Your righteous servants."2

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And he took attendance of the birds and said, "Why do I not see the hoopoe - or is he among the absent?

— Saheeh International

I will surely subject him to a severe punishment, or ˹even˺ slaughter him, unless he brings me a compelling excuse.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

I will surely punish him with a severe punishment or slaughter him unless he brings me clear authorization."1
