Surah Fussilat Ayat 22 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 22
And you were not covering yourselves, lest your hearing testify against you or your sight or your skins, but you assumed that Allah does not know much of what you do.
“Ye did not seek to hide yourselves, lest your hearing, your sight, and your skins should bear witness against you! But ye did think that Allah knew not many of the things that ye used to do!
When you used to conceal yourselves (while committing misdeeds) you never thought that your ears or your eyes or your skins would ever bear witness against you; you rather fancied that Allah does not know a great deal of what you do.
And you have not been hiding against yourselves, lest your ears, and your eyes, and your skins testify against you, but you thought that Allah knew not much of what you were doing.
Ye did not hide yourselves lest your ears and your eyes and your skins should testify against you, but ye deemed that Allah knew not much of what ye did.
And in no way did you take to screening yourselves that neither your hearing, nor your beholdings, (i.e., eyesight (s) nor your skins should testify against you; but you surmised that Allah does not know much of whatever you did.
yet you did not try to hide yourselves from your ears, eyes, and skin to prevent them from testifying against you. You thought that God did not know about much of what you were doing,
اور تم (اپنی بداعمالیاں) اس وجہ سے پوشیده رکھتے ہی نہ تھے کہ تم پر تمہارے کان اور تمہاری آنکھیں اور تمہاری کھالیں گواہی دیں گی، ہاں تم یہ سمجھتے رہے کہ تم جو کچھ بھی کر رہے ہو اس میں سے بہت سےاعمال سے اللہ بےخبر ہے
