Surah Ibrahim Ayat 43 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 43
Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void.
They running forward with necks outstretched, their heads uplifted, their gaze returning not towards them, and their hearts a (gaping) void!
when they shall keep pressing ahead in haste, their heads lifted up, their gaze directed forward, unable to look away from what they behold, their hearts utterly void.
(They will be) hastening forward with necks outstretched, their heads raised up (towards the sky), their gaze returning not towards them and their hearts empty (from thinking because of extreme fear).
As they come hurrying on in fear, their heads upraised, their gaze returning not to them, and their hearts as air.
Hurrying with their heads protruding, their glances not returning towards them, and their heart-sights (as) air.
They will rush forward, craning their necks, unable to divert their eyes, a gaping void in their hearts.
وه اپنے سر اوپر اٹھائے دوڑ بھاگ کر رہے ہوں گے، خود اپنی طرف بھی ان کی نگاہیں نہ لوٹیں گی اور ان کے دل خالی اور اڑے ہوئے ہوں گے
