Original Book

وَلَوْلَا كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَتْ مِنْ رَبِّكَ لَكَانَ لِزَامًا وَأَجَلٌ مُسَمًّى


Bubenheim - Elyas

Wenn es nicht ein schon früher ergangenes Wort von deinem Herrn und eine festgesetzte Frist gäbe, wäre (die sofortige Strafe) fürwahr unabwendbar.



Und gäbe es nicht einen früher ergangenen Spruch deines Herrn und eine festgesetzte Frist, wäre dieses Los (auch jetzt) unabwendbar.


Ahmed Ali

If the decree (of respite) had not been pronounced by your Lord, (the inevitable judgement would have ensued); but a term is fixed (for everything).


Ali Ünal

Had it not been for a decree already issued by your Lord, and for a term already appointed (by Him), the judgment (against them) would certainly have been given and executed.


Amatul Rahman Omar

But for a word (of promise) already made by your Lord and the term (already) fixed (for them), the inevitable would surely have befallen them by now.



Now were it not for a decree that has already gone forth from thy Sustainer, setting a term 112  [for each sinner's repentance], it would inescapably follow [that all who sin must be doomed at once]. 113 



And had not a word from thy Lord gone forth, and a term determined, it must necessarily have come.


Faridul Haque

And had not a command of your Lord been passed, then the punishment would have gripped them - and had a term not been appointed.


Hamid S. Aziz

Is it not guidance for them to know how many generations We have destroyed before them, amidst whose dwelling-places they walk? Verily, in that are signs to men of thought (or intelligence).



And was it not for a word/sermon preceded from your Lord, (it) would have been necessity/obligation and (a) named/identified term/time.



Had it not been already decreed by your Rabb and a term for respite been appointed, they would have been punished.


Maulana Mohammad Ali

Does it not manifest to them how many of the generations, in whose dwellings they go about, We destroyed before them? Surely there are signs in this for men of understanding.


Muhammad Sarwar

Had not the word of your Lord been decreed (otherwise), the unbelievers deserved immediate punishment. The appointed time for their punishment will inevitably come.



And but for a decree that had already gone forth from thy Lord, and a term already fixed, the judgment would have been inevitable (in this world).



And had there not been a word (that had) already gone forth from your Lord and an appointed term, it would surely have been made to cleave (to them).


The Noble Koran

And had it not been for a Word that went forth before from your Lord, and a term determined, (their punishment) must necessarily have come (in this world).


Yusuf Ali

Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy Lord, (their punishment) must necessarily have come; but there is a Term appointed (for respite).
