And now that We replace one message by another -since God is fully aware of what He bestows from on high, step by step - they [who deny the truth] are wont to say, "Thou but inventest it!" Nay, but most of them do not understand it!
If We happen to exchange a revelation which has already served its purpose for another revelation appropriate for the new circumstance, and Allah knows exactly what to reveal and when, they -the infidels- accuse your O Muhammad of forgery. Indeed, most of them do not know the facts nor do they reflect.
When We put a Revelation in place of another Revelation (in the course of perfecting the Religion and completing Our favor upon you), – and God knows best what He sends down – they say: "You are but a forger!" No, rather, most of them do not know.
And when We substitute a verse (Literally; a sign "ayat) in the place of (another) verse-and Allah best knows what He is sending down-they say, "Surely you are only a fabricator!" No indeed, (but) most of them do not know.
And now that We replace one Message by another, for Allah is fully Aware of what He reveals in stages, some people say, "You are an inventor." (But, human civilization has evolved sufficiently to be given the perfect Divine System. This Qur'an will remain a watcher over previous Scriptures (5:48)). But most of them do not know this fact.
When We substitute one verse in favor of another to elaborate with different examples - and Allah knows best what He reveals in stages - they say: "You are but a forger." The fact is that most of them do not understand.
Dr. Munir Munshey
And when We bring a verse in place of another __ Allah knows best what He reveals __ they say, "Surely, you have made it up." Most of them in fact do not understand!
And when We substitute some Verse in place of another Verse, and Allah (alone) knows best whatever He sends down, (then) the disbelievers say: ‘You are but a forger!’ But most of them do not know (the rationale of sending down and substituting the Verses).
Dr. Kamal Omar
And when We replaced an Ayat at the place of (another) Ayat,and Allah knows better what He delivers (on a person, from His Al-Kitab), the people said: “Surely, what (is the situation is that) you are a Muftari [one who forges (statements in the name of Allah)]. “Nay! The majority of them do not know. [It is only the Divine Scripture which has scattered the teachings on any particular subject throughout its Text. This style is not found in any human book. Therefore when one delivers the statements to his pupil on one particular subject-matter, he delivers them collectively. The teacher has to pick up the Verses from different places to make the student understand the matter. The people who are ignorant in this matter apply a charge of forgery to the teacher who teaches in this manner.]
Whenever We replace one verse by another verse - and Allah knows what He should reveal - they are wont to say: "You are nothing but a fabricator (who has invented the Qur´an)." The fact is that most of them are ignorant of the Truth.
God knows what He is revealing to you. Yet when a subject is being elaborated in different chapters [or when an issue (such as the prohibition of drinking alcoholic beverages) is being scrutinized,] the disbelievers say: “You have made this one up!” The fact of the matter is, they simply do not get it.
And when We replace a verse * by another - and Allah well knows what He sends down - the disbelievers say, "You are just fabricating"; in fact most of them do not know. (* The command of one verse by another.)
Hasan Al-Fatih Qaribullah
When We exchange a verse for another and Allah knows best what He is sending down they say: 'You are but a forger. ' No, most of them do not know.
And when We change a message for a message -- and Allah knows best what He reveals -- they say: Thou art only a forger. Nay, most of them know not.
Muhammad Ahmed - Samira
And if We exchanged/replaced/substituted a verse in place (of) a verse , and God is more knowledgeable with what He descends, they said: "But you are a fabricator/cutter and splitter." Rather most of them do not know.
When we substitute one revelation in place of another, and GOD is fully aware of what He reveals, they say, "You made this up!" Indeed, most of them do not know.
Ahmed Raza Khan (Barelvi)
And when We replace a verse* by another – and Allah well knows what He sends down – the disbelievers say, “You are just fabricating”; in fact most of them do not know. (* The command of one verse by another.)
And Allah knows very well the need of what He reveals, yet when We replace a revelation with another revelation they say (to you), `You are only a fabricator (of lies).' The truth is, however, that most of them know nothing.
And when We change a Verse (of the Quran, i.e. cancel (abrogate) its order) in place of another, and Allah knows the best of what He sends down, they (the disbelievers) say: "You (O Muhammad SAW) are but a Muftari! (forger, liar)." Nay, but most of them know not.
When We substitute in the Koran an abrogating verse in lieu of a verse abrogated, -- and God best knoweth the fitness of that which He revealeth, -- the infidels say, thou art only a forger of these verses: But the greater part of them know not truth from falsehood.
