Khattab :

Or ˹is it because˺ the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything in between belongs to them? Let them then climb their way ˹to heaven, if their claim is true˺.

Malik : Or do they have sovereignty over the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them? If so, let them ascend by any means to be in a position of dictating Allah according to their wishes.
Pickthall : Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them theirs? Then let them ascend by ropes!

Asad 14 I.e., "Do they think that human beings are so highly endowed that they are bound to attain, some day, to mastery over the universe and all nature, and thus to God-like power?" Cf. in this connection {96:6-8} and the corresponding note [4]. - As regards my rendering of al-asbab as "all [conceivable] means", see note [82] on 18:84.

Yusuf Ali 4157 Weak and puny creatures though they are, they dare to raise their heads against the Omnipotent, as if they had dominion over Creation and not He! If they had any power, let them mount up to heaven and use all the means they have to that end, and see how they can frustrate Allah's Purpose!
