Sura 5
Aya 104
وَإِذا قيلَ لَهُم تَعالَوا إِلىٰ ما أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ وَإِلَى الرَّسولِ قالوا حَسبُنا ما وَجَدنا عَلَيهِ آباءَنا ۚ أَوَلَو كانَ آباؤُهُم لا يَعلَمونَ شَيئًا وَلا يَهتَدونَ

Yusuf Ali

When it is said to them: “Come to what God hath revealed; come to the Messenger.: They say: “Enough for us1 are the ways we found our fathers following.” what! even though their fathers were void of knowledge and guidance?
  • Cf. 2:170. Where a Messenger of Truth comes to teach us the better way, it is foolish to say: “What our ancestors did is good enough for us.”
