Surah Al-A’raf Ayat 139 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 139
Indeed, those [worshippers] – destroyed is that in which they are [engaged], and worthless is whatever they were doing.”
“As to these folk,- the cult they are in is (but) a fragment of a ruin, and vain is the (worship) which they practise.”
The way these people follow is bound to lead to destruction; and all their works are vain.
[Musa (Moses) added:] “Verily, these people will be destroyed for that which they are engaged in (idols-worship). And all that they are doing is in vain.”
Lo! as for these, their way will be destroyed and all that they are doing is in vain.
Surely, whatever (idols) these (people consecrated themselves to) will be completely annihilated, and whatever they were doing is untrue.”.
[the cult] these people practise is doomed to destruction, and what they have been doing is useless.
یہ لوگ جس کام میں لگے ہیں یہ تباه کیا جائے گا اور ان کا یہ کام محض بےبنیاد ہے
