Asad Quran Translation
YOU ARE OBSESSED by greed for more and more
Malik Quran Translation
O mankind, you have been distracted by the rivalry of piling up worldly gains against one another.
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things) 6257
Acquisitiveness, that is, the passion for seeking an increase in wealth, position, the number of adherents or followers or supporters, mass production and mass organisation, may affect an individual as such, or it may affect whole societies or nations. Other people's example or rivalry in such things may aggravate the situation. Up to a certain point it may be good and necessary. But when it becomes inordinate and monopolises attention, it leaves no time for higher things in life, and a clear warning is here sounded from a moral point of view. Man may be engrossed in these things till death approaches, and he looks back on a wasted life, as far as the higher things are concerned.
Piktal Quran Translation
Rivalry in worldly increase distracteth you
