M. H. Shakir, The Holy Quran; Arabic Text and English Translation; Foot-notes by M. H. Shakir (1974)
168. Had we a reminder from those of yore,
169. We would certainly have been the servants of Allah — the purified ones.
170. But (now) they disbelieve in it, so they will come to know.
171. And certainly Our word has already gone forth in respect of Our servants, the apostles:
172. Most surely they shall be the assisted ones,
173. And most surely Our host alone shall be the victorious ones.
174. Therefore turn away from them till a time,
175. And (then) see them, so they too shall see.
176. What! would they then hasten on Our chastisement?
177. But when it shall descend in their court, evil shall then be the morning of the warned ones.
178. And turn away from them till a time,
179. And (then) see, for they too shall see.
180. Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honour, above what they describe.
181. And peace be on the apostles.
182. And all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1. Suad, I swear by the Quran, full of admonition.
2. Nay! those who disbelieve are in self-exaltation and opposition.
