Indeed, We have tested those ˹Meccans˺ as We tested the owners of the garden—when they swore they would surely harvest ˹all˺ its fruit in the early morning,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Indeed, We have tried them as We tried the companions of the garden, when they swore to cut its fruit in the [early] morning

— Saheeh International

leaving no thought for Allah’s Will.1

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Without making exception.1

— Saheeh International

Then it was struck by a torment from your Lord while they slept,

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

So there came upon it [i.e., the garden] an affliction from your Lord while they were asleep.

— Saheeh International

so it was reduced to ashes.

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And it became as though reaped.

— Saheeh International

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they called one another at morning,

— Saheeh International

˹saying,˺ “Go early to your harvest, if you want to pick ˹all˺ the fruit.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

[Saying], "Go early to your crop if you would cut the fruit."

— Saheeh International

“Do not let any poor person enter your garden today.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

[Saying], "There will surely not enter it today upon you [any] poor person."

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they went early in determination, [assuming themselves] able.1

— Saheeh International

But when they saw it ˹devastated˺, they cried, “We must have lost ˹our˺ way!

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

But when they saw it, they said, "Indeed, we are lost;

— Saheeh International

In fact, we have been deprived ˹of our livelihood˺.”

— Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Rather, we have been deprived."

— Saheeh International
