Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translations

Surah Maa-'uun: Small Kindness

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    Seest thou one who denies the Judgment (to come)?
Pickthall:   Hast thou observed him who belieth religion?
Yusufali:    Then such is the (man) who repulses the orphan (with harshness),
Pickthall:   That is he who repelleth the orphan,
Yusufali:    And encourages not the feeding of the indigent.
Pickthall:   And urgeth not the feeding of the needy.
Yusufali:    So woe to the worshippers
Pickthall:   Ah, woe unto worshippers
Yusufali:    Who are neglectful of their prayers,
Pickthall:   Who are heedless of their prayer;
Yusufali:    Those who (want but) to be seen (of men),
Pickthall:   Who would be seen (at worship)
Yusufali:    But refuse (to supply) (even) neighbourly needs.
Pickthall:   Yet refuse small kindnesses!


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
