Surah Zukhruf Ayat 17 in Arabic Text
Here you can read various translations of verse 17
And when one of them is given good tidings of that which he attributes to the Most Merciful in comparison, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.
When news is brought to one of them of (the birth of) what he sets up as a likeness to (Allah) Most Gracious, his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief!
(They believe so although when) any of them is given tidings of the birth of a female child the like of which he assigns to the Merciful One, his countenance darkens and he is choked with grief.
And if one of them is informed of the news of (the birth of) that which he set forth as a parable to the Most Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. of a girl), his face becomes dark, gloomy, and he is filled with grief!
And if one of them hath tidings of that which he likeneth to the Beneficent One, his countenance becometh black and he is full of inward rage.
And when one of them is given the good tidings of what he struck (i.e., cited) as a likeness to The AllMerciful, (i.e., he is given the news of the birth of a daughter) his face lingers blackened, and he is constantly repressing anguish inwardly.
When one of them is given news of the birth of a daughter, such as he so readily ascribes to the Lord of Mercy, his face grows dark and he is filled with gloom-
(حاﻻنکہ) ان میں سے کسی کو جب اس چیز کی خبر دی جائے جس کی مثال اس نے (اللہ) رحمٰن کے لیے بیان کی ہے تو اس کا چہره سیاه پڑ جاتا ہے اور وه غمگین ہو جاتا ہے
