وَتَأْكُلُونَ ٱلتُّرَاثَ أَكْلًا لَّمًّا
Asad Quran Translation
and you devour the inheritance [of others] with devouring greed,
Malik Quran Translation
Greedily you lay your hands on the inheritance of the weak,
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
And ye devour inheritance all with greed. 6123
Inheritance is abused in two ways. (1) Guardians and trustees for the inheritance of minors or women or persons unable to look after their own interests should fulfil their trusts with even more care than they devote to their own interests. Instead of that they selfishly "devour" the property. (2) Persons who inherit property in their own rights should remember that in that case, too, it is a sacred trust. They must use it for the purposes, objects, and duties which they also inherit. It gives them no licence to live in idleness or waste their days in riotous show.
Mustafa Khattab Quran Translation
And you devour ˹others’˺ inheritance greedily,1
They take over the inheritance of orphans and women.
Piktal Quran Translation
And ye devour heritages with devouring greed
