Sahih International

It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.

Abdul Haleem

The sun cannot overtake the moon, nor can the night outrun the day: each floats in [its own] orbit.

Mohsin Khan/Hilali

It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit.

Taqi Usmani

Neither it is for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night outpace the day. Each one is floating in an orbit.

Pickthall

It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.

Pickthall

It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law).
