Surah al-Mursalat (77:30)
|Pickthall||Yusuf Ali||Shakir||Sher Ali|
|Depart unto the shadow falling threefold,||Depart ye to a Shadow (of smoke ascending) in three columns,||Walk on to the covering having three branches,||`Aye, move on towards a three-pronged shadow,|
|Hilali/Khan||Rashad Khalifa||A.J. Arberry||J.M. Rodwell|
|Depart you to a shadow (of Hell-fire smoke ascending) in three columns,||Go to a shade of three different densities.||Depart to a triple-massing shadow||Begone to the shadows that lie in triple masses;|
