Sura 6
Aya 20
الَّذينَ آتَيناهُمُ الكِتابَ يَعرِفونَهُ كَما يَعرِفونَ أَبناءَهُمُ ۘ الَّذينَ خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم فَهُم لا يُؤمِنونَ

Yusuf Ali

Those to whom We have given the Book know this as they know1 their own sons. Those who have lost their own souls refuse therefore to believe.
  • Cf. 2:146 and n. 151. In both passages the pronoun translated “this” may mean “him” and refer to Muḥammad the Messenger of God, as some Commentators think.
