Pickthall:   For the taming of Qureysh.
Yusufali:    Their covenants (covering) journeys by winter and summer,-
Pickthall:   For their taming (We cause) the caravans to set forth in winter and summer.
Yusufali:    Let them adore the Lord of this House,
Pickthall:   So let them worship the Lord of this House,
Yusufali:    Who provides them with food against hunger, and with security against fear (of danger).
Pickthall:   Who hath fed them against hunger and hath made them safe from fear.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
