Sura 16
Aya 87
وَأَلقَوا إِلَى اللَّهِ يَومَئِذٍ السَّلَمَ ۖ وَضَلَّ عَنهُم ما كانوا يَفتَرونَ

Yusuf Ali

That Day shall they (openly) show1 (their) submission to God. and all their inventions shall leave them in the lurch.
  • Insofar as the false gods were real things, such as deified men or forces of nature, they will openly disclaim them and then (as always) show their submission to God. Insofar as the false gods were the inventions of the fancy of the idolaters, they will leave worshippers in the lurch, for they will be shown as non-existent
