Sura 10
Aya 40
وَمِنهُم مَن يُؤمِنُ بِهِ وَمِنهُم مَن لا يُؤمِنُ بِهِ ۚ وَرَبُّكَ أَعلَمُ بِالمُفسِدينَ

Muhammad Asad

And there are among them such as will in time come to believe in this [divine writ], just as there are among them such as will never believe in it;1 and thy Sustainer is fully aware as to who are the spreaders of corruption.
  • The verb yu'minun, which occurs twice in this verse, can be understood as connoting either the present tense - "[such as] believe", resp. "[such as] do not believe" - or the future tense. The future tense (adopted by me) is the meaning unequivocally attributed to it by Tabari and Ibn Kathir; some of the other authorities, like Zamakhshari and Razi, prefer the present tense, but nevertheless regard the other interpretation as legitimate. (See also Manar XI, 380.)
