Yusuf Ali The chiefs of the Unbelievers among his people said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves: his wish is to assert his superiority over you: if Allah had wished (to send messengers), He could have sent down angels; never did we hear such a thing (as he says), among our ancestors of old."
Sahih International But the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, "This is not but a man like yourselves who wishes to take precedence over you; and if Allah had willed [to send a messenger], He would have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our forefathers.
Shakir And the chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: He is nothing but a mortal like yourselves who desires that he may have superiority over you, and if Allah had pleased, He could certainly have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our fathers of yore:
Pickthall But the chieftains of his folk, who disbelieved, said: This is only a mortal like you who would make himself superior to you. Had Allah willed, He surely could have sent down angels. We heard not of this in the case of our fathers of old.
محمد جالندھری تو ان کی قوم کے سردار جو کافر تھے کہنے لگے کہ یہ تو تم ہی جیسا آدمی ہے۔ تم پر بڑائی حاصل کرنی چاہتا ہے۔ اور اگر خدا چاہتا تو فرشتے اُتار دیتا۔ ہم نے اپنے اگلے باپ دادا میں تو یہ بات کبھی سنی نہیں تھی
