Lo! We have put on their necks carcans reaching unto the chins, so that they are made stiff-necked.
- Pickthall, Marmaduke
Indeed We have put iron collars around their necks, which are up to the chins, so their heads are upturned.
- Qarai, Ali Quli
We have enchained their necks up to their chins. Thus, they cannot bend their heads (to find their way).
- Sarwar, Shaykh
Surely We have placed chains on their necks, and these reach up to their chins, so they have their heads raised aloft.

ہم نے ان کی گردن میں طوق ڈال دیئے ہیں جو ان کی ٹھڈیوں تک پہنچے ہوئے ہیں اور وہ سر اٹھائے ہوئے ہیں
- Jawadi, Zeeshan Haider
ہم نے اُن کی گردنوں میں طوق ڈال دیے ہیں جن سے وہ ٹھوڑیوں تک جکڑے گئے ہیں، اس لیے وہ سر اٹھائے کھڑے ہیں
- Maududi, Abul A'ala
ہم نے ان کی گردنو ں میں طوق کردیے ہیں کہ وہ ٹھوڑیوں تک ہیں تو یہ اوپر کو منہ اٹھائے رہ گئے
- Ahmed Raza
ہم نے (ان کے پیہم کفر و عناد کی وجہ سے گویا) ان کی گردنوں میں (گمراہی اور شیطان کی غلامی کے) طوق ڈال دیئے ہیں جو ان کی ٹھوڑیوں تک آگئے ہیں اس لئے وہ سر اوپر اٹھائے ہوئے ہیں (لہٰذا وہ سر جھکا نہیں سکتے)۔
This website is a work of passion. It exists only for a couple of reasons:
1) I wanted to understand the Book without involving any second-party sources of guidance i.e. exegesis, or asbab-e-nuzul, or extra-Quranic ahadith, etc. 2) You must also know what the bare truth is so we can work together.
Because the process must be transparent, the entire website is available for you to download. You can go through the code, and if you can make any improvements to this process, you are most welcome to. It is a humble request to update me regarding the improvements so I can also update myself.
This website was possible by help of many people and forums who helped me to learn Arabic, Philosophy, Law, Psychology, and PHP and other Web scripts. To be honest, I do not even know the names of many but I did learn from them. Some of these people were already dead by the time I read their input.
The entire code of this website is availble for the same reason, that what they taught me, I can only pay it forward.
The Arabic text of the Quran was obtained from Tanzil. The additional translations were also obtained from Tanzil from this link.
The social-sharing images of verses were obtained from Legacy Quran.com, and were then resized for proper social-media display.
