Malik : Lest someone should say: 'Alas! I neglected my duty towards Allah and I was one of those who mocked at His revelations.'

so that no ˹sinful˺ soul will say ˹on Judgment Day˺, ‘Woe to me for neglecting ˹my duties towards˺ Allah, while ridiculing ˹the truth˺.’

Pickthall : Lest any soul should say Alas, my grief that I was unmindful of Allah, and I was indeed among the scoffers!

Asad 60 Whenever there is no clear indication that the term nafs has another meaning, it signifies a "human being"; hence, the personal pronouns relating to this term (which is feminine in Arabic) are masculine in my rendering.

Yusuf Ali 4327 Many kinds of sighs and regrets will then assail us. In the first place, we shall see our shortcomings: we were negligent when we should have been serious: we mocked when we should have tried to learn and understand. But it will be too late then to retrieve our position.
