Qaaloo maaa antum illaa basharum mislunaa wa maaa anzalar Rahmaanu min shai'in in antum illaa takziboon(QS. Yāʾ Sīn:15)
English / Sahih Translation:
They said, "You are not but human beings like us, and the Most Merciful has not revealed a thing. You are only telling lies." (QS. Ya-Sin, ayah 15)
They (the people of the Town) said, “You are no more than human beings like us, and the RaHmān (the All-Merciful Allah) has not sent down any thing. You are but telling a lie.”
The people replied, “You are only humans like us, and the Most Compassionate has not revealed anything. You are simply lying!”
They said, “You are no more than human beings like us, and the Most Compassionate has not sent down anything. You are simply lying.”
They said, 'You are naught but mortals like us; the All-merciful has not sent down anything. You are speaking only lies.'
They said, ‘Truly, we are messengers to you,’
They said: ye are but human beings like ourselves; the Compassionate hath not sent down aught; ye are only lying.
The (people) said; "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (Allah) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation; ye do nothing but lie."
They said: “We have been sent to you as Messengers.” The people of the town said: “You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Merciful Lord has revealed nothing. You are simply lying.”
"You are only men like us," they replied; "Ar-Rahman has not sent down any thing. You are speaking only lies."
They said, “You are nothing but mortals like us; the Most Gracious has not sent down anything – you are nothing but liars.”
They said, ‘You are no other than human beings like us, and the All-beneficent has not sent down anything, and you are only lying.’
They said: "You are but mortals like us. The All-Merciful has never sent down anything (by way of Book, as you claim). You are only telling lies."
They (- the contemporaries of the Messengers) gave (a general) reply, `You are only human beings like ourselves. The Most Gracious (God) has revealed nothing (to you). You are simply telling lies.´
They said: "You are not except humans equal/alike to us , and the merciful did not descend from a thing, that truly you are except lying/denying/falsifying."
They said, “You are nothing but mortals like us; the Most Gracious has not sent down anything - you are nothing but liars.”
When We sent to them two, they rejected both of them, then We strengthened (them) with a third, and they said, "Surely we are messengers to you."
They (people of the town) said: "You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Most Beneficent (Allah) has revealed nothing, you are only telling lies."
When We sent to them two, they rejected them both; then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are sent to you.
They said: You are naught but mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent Allah revealed anything; you only lie.
They said: Ye are but mortals like unto us. The Beneficent hath naught revealed. Ye do but lie!
The people said, "You are mere mortals like us and the Beneficent God has sent nothing. You are only liars."
But they said: 'You are only humans like ourselves. The Merciful has not sent down anything, your speech is but lies'
They said: "You are only human beings like ourselves, and the Most Gracious has revealed nothing. You are only telling lies."
They replied, "You are nothing but mortal men like us and the Merciful God has not revealed anything. You are surely lying."
They said, “You are nothing but humans like us, and the Gracious did not send down anything; you are only lying.”
They said, `You are nothing but humans like us, and the Compassionate One has revealed nothing. You are only lying!'
قَالُوا مَا أَنتُمْ إِلاَّ بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا
They said;"You are only human beings like ourselves..."
means, `so how could you receive revelation when you are human beings and we are human beings, so why do we not receive revelation like you If you are Messengers, you should be angels.'
This is like what many of the nations said who disbelieved, as Allah has told us in the Ayah;
ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُ كَانَت تَّأْتِيهِمْ رُسُلُهُم بِالْبَيِّنَـتِ فَقَالُواْ أَبَشَرٌ يَهْدُونَنَا
That was because there came to them their Messengers with clear proofs, but they said;"Shall mere men guide us!" (64;6)
meaning that they were amazed by that and they denied it.
And Allah says;
قَالُواْ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلاَّ بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا تُرِيدُونَ أَن تَصُدُّونَا عَمَّا كَانَ يَعْبُدُ ءَابَأوُنَا فَأْتُونَا بِسُلْطَـنٍ مُّبِينٍ
They said;"You are no more than human beings like us! You wish to turn us away from what our fathers used to worship. Then bring us a clear authority." (14;10)
And Allah tells us that they said;
وَلَيِنْ أَطَعْتُمْ بَشَراً مِّثْلَكُمْ إِنَّكُمْ إِذاً لَّخَـسِرُونَ
"If you were to obey a human being like yourselves, then verily, you indeed would be losers." (23;34)
And Allah says;
وَمَا مَنَعَ النَّاسَ أَن يُوْمِنُواْ إِذْ جَأءَهُمُ الْهُدَى إِلاَّ أَن قَالُواْ أَبَعَثَ اللَّهُ بَشَرًا رَّسُولاً
And nothing prevented men from believing when the guidance came to them, except that they said;"Has Allah sent a man as (His) Messenger!" (17;94)
These people said;
قَالُوا مَا أَنتُمْ إِلاَّ بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا وَمَا أَنزَلَ الرَّحْمن مِن شَيْءٍ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلاَّ تَكْذِبُونَ
قَالُوا رَبُّنَا يَعْلَمُ إِنَّا إِلَيْكُمْ لَمُرْسَلُونَ
