Ahmed Ali

Do not utter the lies your tongues make up: "This is lawful, and this is forbidden," in order to impute lies to God; for they who impute lies to God will not find fulfilment.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and speak not, concerning that which your own tongues qualify (as clean or unclean), the falsehood: “this) crop and cattle (is lawful) for men, (and this is forbidden”,) for women (so that ye invent a lie against allah) by means of it. (lo! those who invent a lie against allah will not succeed) they will neither be safe nor escape allah's chastisement.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and do not say, concerning that which your own tongues qualify, falsehood [such as] ‘this is lawful, and this is unlawful’, for what god [respectively] has not made lawful, and what he has not made unlawful, in order to invent lies against god, by attributing such [claims] to him. truly those who invent lies against god will not prosper.
