Sura 17
Aya 48
انظُر كَيفَ ضَرَبوا لَكَ الأَمثالَ فَضَلّوا فَلا يَستَطيعونَ سَبيلًا

Yusuf Ali

See what similes they strike for thee: but they have gone astray, and never can they find a way.1
  • Note that the word used is “Sabilan” “a way”, not “the way”. In going astray they have lost the way: but never can they find any means of getting back to that way, or of justifying themselves or making good their wicked similes.
