أَوَلَمْ يَرَ الْإِنْسَانُ أَنَّا خَلَقْنَاهُ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ فَإِذَا هُوَ خَصِيمٌ مُبِينٌ

Asad : IS MAN, then, not aware that it is We who create him out of [mere] drop of sperm-whereupon, lo! he shows himself endowed with the power to think and to argue?45
Khattab :

Do people not see that We have created them from a sperm-drop, then—behold!—they openly challenge ˹Us˺?

Malik : Does not man see that We have created him from a sperm? Yet he stands up as an open adversary.
Pickthall : Hath not man seen that We have created him from a drop of seed? Yet lo! he is an open opponent.
Yusuf Ali : Doth not man see that it is We Who created Him from sperm? Yet behold! He (stands forth) as an open adversary! 4023
Transliteration : Awalam yara alinsanu anna khalaqnahu min nutfatin faitha huwa khaseemun mubeenun

Asad 45 See similar passage in 16:4, as well as the corresponding note [5]. Completing the interpretation advanced in his (and Zamakhshari's) commentary on the above-mentioned verse, Razi equates here the term khasim (lit., "contender in argument") with the highest manifestation of what is described as natiq ("articulate [or "rational"] being").

Yusuf Ali

Yusuf Ali 4023 Man's disobedience and folly are all the more surprising, seeing that-apart from Allah's greatness and mercy-man is himself such a puny creature, created out of something that is less than a drop in the vast ocean of Existence. Yet man has the hardihood to stand out and dispute with his Maker, and institute idle comparisons as in the next verse!
