Still the pagans have made some of His creation out to be a part of Him.1 Indeed, humankind is clearly ungrateful.

And they argue, “Had the Most Compassionate willed, we would have never worshipped them.” They have no knowledge ˹in support˺ of this ˹claim˺. They do nothing but lie.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they said, "If the Most Merciful had willed, we would not have worshipped them." They have of that no knowledge. They are not but misjudging.

— Saheeh International

Or have We given them a Book ˹for proof˺, before this ˹Quran˺, to which they are holding firm?

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Or have We given them a book before it [i.e., the Qur’ān] to which they are adhering?

— Saheeh International

In fact, they say, “We found our forefathers following a ˹particular˺ way, and we are following in their footsteps.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Rather, they say, "Indeed, we found our fathers upon a religion, and we are in their footsteps [rightly] guided."
