وَمَنْ اَضَلُّ مِمَّنْ يَّدْعُوْا مِنْ دُوْنِ اللہِ مَنْ لَّا يَسْتَجِيْبُ لَہٗۗ اِلٰى يَوْمِ الْقِيٰمَۃِ وَہُمْ عَنْ دُعَاۗىِٕہِمْ غٰفِلُوْنَ۝۵
Waman adallu mimman yadAAoo min dooni Allahi man la yastajeebu lahu ila yawmi alqiyamati wahum AAan duAAaihim ghafiloona


Ahmed Ali

Who is more astray than he who calls on those, apart from God, who cannot answer their prayers till the Day of Resurrection, and are even unaware of being called.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and who is further astray) from the truth and guidance (than those who, instead of allah) i.e. the disbeliever, (pray unto) worship (such as hear not their prayer) such as respond not to his supplication (until the day of resurrection) i.e. the idols, (and are unconscious of their prayer) and are unaware of the prayers of those who worship them,

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and who is (man here is interrogative but meant [rhetorically] as a negation: in other words, ‘no one is’) further astray than him who invokes, [him who] worships, besides god, that is to say, other than him, such as would not respond to him [even] until the day of resurrection — these are the idols, who never answer those who worship them in anything that they ask for — and who are heedless of their supplication?, their worship, because they are inanimates that possess no [faculty of] comprehension.
