M.Pickthall
20. Know that the life of this world is only play, and idle talk, and pageantry, and 
boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children; as the likeness of 
vegetation after rain, whereof the growth is pleasing to the husbandman, but afterward 
it drieth up and thou seest it turning yellow then it becometh straw. And in the 
Hereafter there is grievous punishment, and (also) forgiveness from Allah and His 
good pleasure, whereas the life of the world is but matter of illusion.
Yusuf Ali
20. Know ye (all) that the life of this world is but play and amusement pomp and 
mutual boasting and multiplying (in rivalry) among yourselves riches and children: 
Here is a similitude: How rain and the growth which it brings forth delight (the 
hearts of) the tillers; soon it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then it 
becomes dry and crumbles away.  But in the Hereafter is a Penalty severe (for the 
devotees of wrong) and Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the 
devotees of Allah).  And what is the life of this world but goods and chattels 
of deception?





M.Pickthall
21. Race one with another for forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whereof the 
breadth is as the breadth of the heavens and the earth, which is in store for 
those who believe in Allah and His messengers. Such is the bounty of Allah, which 
He bestoweth upon whom He will, and Allah is of infinite bounty.
Yusuf Ali
21. Be ye foremost (in seeking) forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden (of Bliss) 
the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth prepared for those who 
believe in Allah and His apostles: that is the Grace of Allah which He bestows 
on whom He pleases: and Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding.
