Yusuf Ali They ask thee to hasten on the evil in preference to the good: Yet have come to pass, before them, (many) exemplary punishments! But verily thy Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind for their wrong-doing, and verily thy Lord is (also) strict in punishment.
Sahih International They impatiently urge you to bring about evil before good, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments [to what they demand]. And indeed, your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing, and indeed, your Lord is severe in penalty.
Shakir And they ask you to hasten on the evil before the good, and indeed there have been exemplary punishments before them; and most surely your Lord is the Lord of forgiveness to people, notwithstanding their injustice; and most surely your Lord is severe in requiting (evil).
Pickthall And they bid thee hasten on the evil rather than the good, when exemplary punishments have indeed occurred before them. But lo! thy Lord is rich in pardon for mankind despite their wrong, and lo! thy Lord is strong in punishment.
محمد جالندھری اور یہ لوگ بھلائی سے پہلے تم سے برائی کے جلد خواستگار یعنی (طالب عذاب) ہیں حالانکہ ان سے پہلے عذاب (واقع) ہوچکے ہیں اور تمہارا پروردگار لوگوں کو باوجود ان کی بےانصافیوں کے معاف کرنے والا ہے۔ اور بےشک تمہارا پروردگار سخت عذاب دینے والا ہے
