Yusuf Ali Is it not to Allah that sincere devotion is due? But those who take for protectors other than Allah (say): "We only serve them in order that they may bring us nearer to Allah." Truly Allah will judge between them in that wherein they differ. But Allah guides not such as are false and ungrateful.
Sahih International Unquestionably, for Allah is the pure religion. And those who take protectors besides Him [say], "We only worship them that they may bring us nearer to Allah in position." Indeed, Allah will judge between them concerning that over which they differ. Indeed, Allah does not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever.
Shakir Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a liar, ungrateful.
Pickthall Surely pure religion is for Allah only. And those who choose protecting friends beside Him (say): We worship them only that they may bring us near unto Allah. Lo! Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Lo! Allah guideth not him who is a liar, an ingrate.
محمد جالندھری دیکھو خالص عبادت خدا ہی کے لئے (زیبا ہے) اور جن لوگوں نے اس کے سوا اور دوست بنائے ہیں۔ (وہ کہتے ہیں کہ) ہم ان کو اس لئے پوجتے ہیں کہ ہم کو خدا کا مقرب بنادیں۔ تو جن باتوں میں یہ اختلاف کرتے ہیں خدا ان میں ان کا فیصلہ کردے گا۔ بےشک خدا اس شخص کو جو جھوٹا ناشکرا ہے ہدایت نہیں دیتا
