أَفَرَأَيْتُمُ اللَّاتَ وَالْعُزَّىٰ

Sahih International

So have you considered al-Lat and al-'Uzza?

وَمَنَاةَ الثَّالِثَةَ الْأُخْرَىٰ

And Manat, the third - the other one?

أَلَكُمُ الذَّكَرُ وَلَهُ الْأُنثَىٰ

Is the male for you and for Him the female?

تِلْكَ إِذًا قِسْمَةٌ ضِيزَىٰ

That, then, is an unjust division.

إِنْ هِيَ إِلَّا أَسْمَاءٌ سَمَّيْتُمُوهَا أَنتُمْ وَآبَاؤُكُم مَّا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ بِهَا مِن سُلْطَانٍ ۚ إِن يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَمَا تَهْوَى الْأَنفُسُ ۖ وَلَقَدْ جَاءَهُم مِّن رَّبِّهِمُ الْهُدَىٰ

Sahih International

They are not but [mere] names you have named them - you and your forefathers - for which Allah has sent down no authority. They follow not except assumption and what [their] souls desire, and there has already come to them from their Lord guidance.
