Sura 10
Aya 33
كَذٰلِكَ حَقَّت كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ عَلَى الَّذينَ فَسَقوا أَنَّهُم لا يُؤمِنونَ

Muhammad Asad

Thus is thy Sustainer's word proved true with regard to such as are bent on sinful doings: they will not believe.1
  • See surah 2, note 7, as well as 8:55 and the corresponding note 58. In this particular context, "the Sustainer's word" seems to be synonymous with "the way of God" (sunnat Allah) concerning deliberate sinners and deniers of the truth (Manor XI, 359). The particle anna in annahum (lit., "that they") is, thus, indicative of the purport of the divine "word" referred to, and is best expressed by a colon.
