Let those (disposing of an estate) have the same fear in their minds as they would have for their own if they had left a helpless family behind: Let them fear Allah, and speak words of appropriate (comfort).
And let them fear, those who, if they would themselves leave behind helpless offspring, they would surely have been fearful on their account. Let them, then, fear Allah and make the right statement.

And let the ones be apprehensive (of Allah), who, if ever they left behind them weak offspring, would fear (poverty) for them. So let them be pious to Allah, and let them say a befitting saying.

اور چاہئے کہ وه اس بات سے ڈریں کہ اگر وه خود اپنے پیچھے (ننھے ننھے) ناتواں بچے چھوڑ جاتے جن کے ضائع ہو جانے کا اندیشہ رہتا ہے، (تو ان کی چاہت کیا ہوتی) پس اللہ تعالیٰ سے ڈر کر جچی تلی بات کہا کریں
