English Translation
Until, when he comes to Us [at Judgement], he says [to his companion], "Oh, I wish there was between me and you the distance between the east and west - how wretched a companion."
Until when he comes before Us he will say (to the devil): "Would to God there was a distance of the East and West between you and me, for you were an evil companion!"
To the extent that when the disbeliever will be brought to Us, he will say to his devil, Alas – if only there was the distance* of east and west, between you and me! – so what an evil companion** he is! (* Had I not listened to you. **They will be bound together in chains.)
till, when he comes to Us, he says, 'Would there had been between me and thee the distance of the two Easts!' An evil comrade!
Until when he cometh Unto Us, he will say. Ah! would that there had been between me and thee, the distance of the east and the west an evil companion
Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says [to his Qarin (Satan / devil companion)] Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west) a worst (type of) companion (indeed)!
Until, when He comes to Us, he will say, “If only there were between me and you the distance of the two Easts.” What an evil companion!
But when he comes to Us, he will say (to his satan): “Would that there had been between me and you the distance as between the East and the West. How evil a companion you were!”
Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says, Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west) a worst companion (indeed)!
Till, when he cometh unto Us, he saith (unto his comrade): Ah, would that between me and thee there were the distance of the two horizons - an evil comrade!
When he comes to Us, he will say, ‘I wish there had been between me and you the distance between the east and the west! What an evil companion [you are]!’
And when he comes before Us, he shall say: 'Would that there had been between me and you, the distance of the two Easts' Evil is the companion.
When he returns to us, he will say (to satan), "Would that there had been as long a distance between me and you as that between the East and West. What a terrible companion you have been".
Until when he comes to Us, he says: O would that between me and you there were the distance of the East and the West; so evil is the associate!
When such a person comes to Us, he will say [to his comrade], "If only you had been as far away from me as east is from west. What an evil comrade!"
At length, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says (to his evil companion): "Would that between me and thee were the distance of East and West!" Ah! evil is the companion (indeed)!
