لَأَخَذْنَا مِنْهُ بِٱلْيَمِينِ
Asad Quran Translation
We would indeed have seized him by his right hand,22
I.e., deprived him of all ability to act - the "right hand" symbolizing power.
Malik Quran Translation
We would certainly have seize him by his right hand
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
We should certainly seize him by his right hand 5669
The right hand is the hand of power and action. Any one who is seized by his right hand is prevented from acting as he wishes or carrying out his purpose. The argument is that if an impostor were to arise, he would soon be found out. He could not carry out his fraud indefinitely. But the prophets of Allah, however much they are persecuted, gain more and more power every day, as did the holy Prophet, whose truth, earnestness, sincerity, and love for all, were recognised as his life unfolded itself.
Mustafa Khattab Quran Translation
We would have certainly seized him by his right hand,
Piktal Quran Translation
We assuredly had taken him by the right hand
