Yusuf Ali (The answer will be:) "This is because, when Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship), ye did reject Faith, but when partners were joined to Him, ye believed! the Command is with Allah, Most High, Most Great!"
Sahih International [They will be told], "That is because, when Allah was called upon alone, you disbelieved; but if others were associated with Him, you believed. So the judgement is with Allah, the Most High, the Grand."
Shakir That is because when Allah alone was called upon, you disbelieved, and when associates were given to Him, you believed; so judgment belongs to Allah, the High, the Great.
Pickthall (It is said unto them): This is (your plight) because, when Allah only was invoked, ye disbelieved, but when some partner was ascribed to Him ye were believing. But the command belongeth only to Allah, the Sublime, the Majestic.
محمد جالندھری یہ اس لئے کہ جب تنہا خدا کو پکارا جاتا تھا تو تم انکار کردیتے تھے۔ اور اگر اس کے ساتھ شریک مقرر کیا جاتا تھا تو تسلیم کرلیتے تھے تو حکم تو خدا ہی کا ہے جو (سب سے) اوپر اور (سب سے) بڑا ہے
