Surah Al-Imran Ayat 120 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 120
If good touches you, it distresses them; but if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allah, their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do.
If aught that is good befalls you, it grieves them; but if some misfortune overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if ye are constant and do right, not the least harm will their cunning do to you; for Allah Compasseth round about all that they do.
If anything good happens to you they are grieved; if any misfortune befalls you they rejoice at it. But if you remain steadfast and mindful of Allah their designs will not cause you harm. Allah surely encompasses all that they do.
If a good befalls you, it grieves them, but if some evil overtakes you, they rejoice at it. But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V. 2:2), not the least harm will their cunning do to you. Surely, Allah surrounds all that they do.
If a lucky chance befall you, it is evil unto them, and if disaster strike you they rejoice thereat. But if ye persevere and keep from evil their guile will never harm you. Lo! Allah is Surrounding what they do.
In case a fair (reward) touches you, (i.e. the believers) it vexes them; and in case an odious (disadvantage) afflicts you, they exult with it. And in case you are patient and pious, their plotting will harm you nothing. Surely Allah is Supremely Encompassing of whatever they do.
They grieve at any good that befalls you [believers] and rejoice at your misfortunes. But if you are steadfast and conscious of God, their scheming will not harm you in the least: God encircles everything they do.
تمہیں اگر بھلائی ملے تو یہ ناخوش ہوتے ہیں ہاں! اگر برائی پہنچے تو خوش ہوتے ہیں، تم اگر صبر کرو اور پرہیزگاری کرو تو ان کا مکر تمہیں کچھ نقصان نہ دے گا۔ اللہ تعالیٰ نے انکے اعمال کا احاطہ کر رکھا ہے
