Sūra XVI.: Naḥl or The Bee.

Section 3

22. Ilahukum ilahun wahidun faallatheena la yu/minoona bial-akhirati quloobuhum munkiratun wahum mustakbiroona

22. Your God is One God:
As to those who believe not
In the Hereafter, their hearts
Refuse to know, and they
Are arrogant.

23. La jarama anna Allaha yaAAlamu ma yusirroona wama yuAAlinoona innahu la yuhibbu almustakbireena

23. Undoubtedly God doth know
What they conceal,
And what they reveal:
Verily He loveth not the arrogant.

24. Wa-itha qeela lahum matha anzala rabbukum qaloo asateeru al-awwaleena

24. When it is said to them,
"What is it that your Lord
Has revealed?" they say,
"Tales of the ancients!"

25. Liyahmiloo awzarahum kamilatan yawma alqiyamati wamin awzari allatheena yudilloonahum bighayri AAilmin ala saa ma yaziroona

25. Let them bear, on the Day
Of Judgment, their own burdens
In full, and also (something)
Of the burdens of those
Without knowledge, whom they
Misled. Alas, how grievous
The burdens they will bear!
