وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ لَوْلَا يُكَلِّمُنَا اللَّهُ أَوْ تَأْتِينَا آيَةٌ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ قَالَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِثْلَ قَوْلِهِمْ ۘ تَشَابَهَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ ۗ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ

Quran surah Al Baqarah 118 in english translation

Sahih International

(2:118) Those who do not know say, “Why does Allah not speak to us or there come to us a sign?” Thus spoke those before them like their words. Their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to a people who are certain [in faith].

Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali and Muhammad Muhsin Khan,

(2:118) And those who have no knowledge say: “Why does not Allah speak to us (face to face) or why does not a sign come to us?” So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty.

Mohammed Marmaduke William Pickthall

(2:118) And those who have no knowledge say: Why doth not Allah speak unto us, or some sign come unto us? Even thus, as they now speak, spake those (who were) before them. Their hearts are all alike. We have made clear the revelations for people who are sure.

Abdullah Yusuf Ali

(2:118) Say those without knowledge: “Why speaketh not Allah unto us? or why cometh not unto us a Sign?” So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike. We have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith (in their hearts).

Mohammad Habib Shakir

(2:118) And those who have no knowledge say: Why does not Allah speak to us or a sign come to us? Even thus said those before them, the like of what they say; their hearts are all alike. Indeed We have made the communications clear for a people who are sure.

Dr. Ghali

(2:118) And they that do not know have said, “if (only) Allah had spoken to us or a sign had come up to us.” Thus did the ones even before them say the like of their saying. Their hearts resemble each other. We have already made evident the signs for a people that have certitude.

Ali Unal

(2:118) Those who have no knowledge (from Him, those who do not recognize God, and therefore lead an ignorant life) say: “Why does not God speak to us (directly) or a manifest sign (a miracle) come to us?” So spoke those before them, a word like theirs. Their hearts are alike. Yet We have made clear the signs (the Revelations establishing the Unity and Sovereignty of God, the Messengership of Muhammad, and the Divine authorship of the Qur’an,) to a people who seek certainty (with open, inquiring minds).

Amatul Rahman Omar

(2:118) And those who do not know (the wisdom implied in Divine revelation) say, `Why does not Allâh (Himself) speak to us or give us a (convincing) sign?´ That is exactly what their predecessors had said. Their hearts have become very much alike. We have certainly made (Our) signs explicitly clear for a people who wish to be convinced.

Literal

(2:118) And those who do not know said: “If only God converses/speaks (to) us or a sign/verse/evidence comes to us.” Like that those from before them said alike/similar/equal (to) their saying. Their hearts/minds resembled (each other), We had clarified/explained the signs/verses/evidences to a nation being sure/certain .

Ahmed Ali

(2:118) But those who are ignorant say: “Why does God not speak or show us a sign?” The same question had been asked by men before them, who were like them in their hearts. But to those who are firm in their faith We have shown Our signs already.

A. J. Arberry

(2:118) And they that know not say, ‘Why does God not speak to us? Why does a sign not come to us?’ So spoke those before them as these men say; their hearts are much alike. Yet We have made clear the signs unto a people who are sure

Abdul Majid Daryabadi

(2:118) And those who know not, say: Wherefore speakest not God unto us? or cometh not unto us a sign? Thus aid those before them the like of their saying: consimilar are their hearts. We have already manifested the signs unto the people who would be convinced.

Maulana Mohammad Ali

(2:118)-

Muhammad Sarwar

(2:118) The ignorant have asked, “Why does He not speak to us and why has no evidence come to show us (that He exists)?” People before them had also asked such questions. They all think in the same way. We have already made the evidence very clear for those who have certainty.

Hamid Abdul Aziz

(2:118) And those without knowledge say, “Why does not Allah speak to us?” or “Why does no sign come to us?”. So spoke those before them in words of similar meaning. Their hearts are all alike. We have made manifest the signs unto a people that are sure.

Faridul Haque

(2:118) And the ignorant people said, Why does not Allah speak to us, or some sign come to us? Those before them had also spoken in the same way as they speak

Talal Itani

(2:118) Those who do not know say, “If only God would speak to us, or a sign would come to us.” Thus said those who were before them. Their hearts are alike. We have made the signs clear for people who are certain.

Ahmed Raza Khan

(2:118) And the ignorant people said, “Why does not Allah speak to us, or some sign come to us?” Those before them had also spoken in the same way as they speak; their hearts (and of those before them) are all alike; undoubtedly, We have made the signs clear for the people who have faith.

Wahiduddin Khan

(2:118) Those who are devoid of knowledge say, “Why does God not speak to us or show us a sign?” The same demand was made by those before them; their hearts are all alike. We have made the signs clear to those whose faith is firm.

Safi-ur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri

(2:118) And those who have no knowledge say: “Why does not Allah speak to us (face to face) or why does not a sign come to us” So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike, We have indeed made plain the signs for people who believe with certainty.

Ali Quli Qarai

(2:118) Those who have no knowledge say, ‘Why does not Allah speak to us, or come to us a sign?’ So said those who were before them, [words] similar to what they say. Alike are their hearts. We have certainly made the signs clear for a people who have certainty.

Hasan al-Fatih Qaribullah and Ahmad Darwish

(2:118) And those who do not know say: ‘Why does not Allah speak to us or a sign come to us’ Likewise, those who were before them said similar to their saying. Their hearts are alike. Indeed, We have clarified the signs to a nation who are certain.   That is translated surah Al Baqarah ayat 118 (QS 2: 118) in arabic and english text, may be useful.
