Sura 16
Aya 86
وَإِذا رَأَى الَّذينَ أَشرَكوا شُرَكاءَهُم قالوا رَبَّنا هٰؤُلاءِ شُرَكاؤُنَا الَّذينَ كُنّا نَدعو مِن دونِكَ ۖ فَأَلقَوا إِلَيهِمُ القَولَ إِنَّكُم لَكاذِبونَ

Yusuf Ali

When those who gave partners to God will see their “partners”, they will say: “Our Lord! these are our ###?partners,?### those whom we used to invoke1 besides Thee.” But they will throw back their word at them (and say): “Indeed ye are liars!”That Day shall they (openly) show2125 (their) submission to God. and all their inventions shall leave them in the lurch.
  • The worshippers of false gods will try to shift the responsibility from their own shoulders to that of the false gods. They will suggest (though they will not have the courage for such a bare-faced lie) that they were misled by the false gods. But their lying suggestions will be contradicted and thrown back at them as explained in the next note.
