وَتَضْحَكُونَ وَلَا تَبْكُونَ
Asad Quran Translation
And do you laugh instead of weeping,
Malik Quran Translation
and laugh instead of weeping?
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
And will ye laugh and not weep 5125
The higher issues of Life and the Hereafter are serious, and therefore all that we do in this life is serious and important. We must shun inanities and frivolities. It is no laughing time. If we only realised our own shortcomings, we should weep. But weeping by itself will not help. We must try and understand Allah and adore Him. Thus shall we be able to understand ourselves and our fellow-men.
Mustafa Khattab Quran Translation
laughing ˹at it˺ and not weeping ˹in awe˺,
Piktal Quran Translation
And laugh and not weep,
Watadhakoona wala tabkoona
