Surah Al-Kahf Ayat 39 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 39
And why did you, when you entered your garden, not say, ‘What Allah willed [has occurred]; there is no power except in Allah ‘? Although you see me less than you in wealth and children,
“Why didst thou not, as thou wentest into thy garden, say: ‘Allah’s will (be done)! There is no power but with Allah!’ If thou dost see me less than thee in wealth and sons,
When you entered your vineyard, why did you not say: ‘Whatever Allah wills shall come to pass, for there is no power save with Allah!’ If you find me less than yourself in wealth and children
It was better for you to say, when you entered your garden: ‘That which Allah wills (will come to pass)! There is no power but with Allah ‘. If you see me less than you in wealth, and children.
If only, when thou enteredst thy garden, thou hadst said: That which Allah willeth (will come to pass)! There is no strength save in Allah! Though thou seest me as less than thee in wealth and children,
And if you had said as you entered your garden, cWhatever Allah decides (will be); there is no power except with Allah, (i.e., say: ma sha ” ⊃ ” Allah La hawla wala quwwata ⊃ illa billah) (it would have been better for you.) In case you see me that I am less than you in wealth and children,
If only, when you entered your garden, you had said, “This is God’s will. There is no power not [given] by God.” Although you see I have less wealth and offspring than you,
تو نے اپنے باغ میں جاتے وقت کیوں نہ کہا کہ اللہ کا چاہا ہونے واﻻ ہے، کوئی طاقت نہیں مگر اللہ کی مدد سے، اگر تو مجھے مال واوﻻد میں اپنے سے کم دیکھ رہا ہے
