Surah Ta-Ha Ayat 16 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 16
So do not let one avert you from it who does not believe in it and follows his desire, for you [then] would perish.
“Therefore let not such as believe not therein but follow their own lusts, divert thee therefrom, lest thou perish!”..
Let him who does not believe in it and follows his lust not turn your thought away from it, lest you are ruined.
“Therefore, let not the one who believes not therein (i.e. in the Day of Resurrection, Reckoning, Paradise and Hell, etc.), but follows his own lusts, divert you therefrom, lest you perish.
Therefor, let not him turn thee aside from (the thought of) it who believeth not therein but followeth his own desire, lest thou perish.
So definitely do not let him who does not believe in it and closely follows his (own) prejudices bar you from it (and) then you will topple down.
Do not let anyone who does not believe in it and follows his own desires distract you from it, and so bring you to ruin.’
پس اب اس کے یقین سے تجھے کوئی ایسا شخص روک نہ دے جو اس پر ایمان نہ رکھتا ہو اور اپنی خواہش کے پیچھے پڑا ہو، ورنہ تو ہلاک ہوجائے گا
