Sura 10
Aya 69
قُل إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَفتَرونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ الكَذِبَ لا يُفلِحونَ

Yusuf Ali

Say: “Those who invent a lie against God will never prosper.”1
  • In Qur-ānic language “prosperity” refers both to our everyday life and to the higher life within us?to the Present and the Future?health and strength, opportunities and resources, a spirit of contentment and the power of influencing others. Here there seems to be an extra touch of meaning. A liar not only deprives himself of prosperity in all senses, but his “lie” itself against God will not succeed: it will and must be found out.
