Sura 15
Aya 3
ذَرهُم يَأكُلوا وَيَتَمَتَّعوا وَيُلهِهِمُ الأَمَلُ ۖ فَسَوفَ يَعلَمونَ

Yusuf Ali

Leave them alone, to enjoy1 (the good things of this life) and to please themselves: let (false) hope amuse them: soon will knowledge (undeceive them).2
  • Literally, “to eat”, Cf. 5:66 and n. 776.
  • The foolish and the wicked set great store by the pleasures of this world. In their pride they think they have all knowledge. In the fullness of knowledge they will see how wrong they were. Meanwhile those who have received the Light should not for a single moment wonder at the apparent prosperity of the ungodly in this world. They should leave them alone, confident in the goodness and justice of God.
