Sahih International:

Then have they not reflected over the word [i.e., the Quran], or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers?

1 Mufti Taqi Usmani

Then, is it that they did not ponder over the Word (of Allah), or there has come to them something that did not come to their forefathers?
