Translation

Their hearts toying as with trifles. The wrong-doers conceal their private counsels, (saying), "Is this (one) more than a man like yourselves? Will ye go to witchcraft with your eyes open?"

Tafsir

with their hearts preoccupied, heedless of its meanings. And they are secret in [their] conference, [their] speech, [they] the evildoers (alladheena zalamoo, a substitution for the [third person plural indicator] waaw of wa-asarroo'l-najwaa, 'and they are secret in conference') 'Is this, namely, Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, other than a [mortal] human being like yourselves?, and so what he produces is [mere] sorcery. Will you then take [to] sorcery, [will] you [succumb and] follow it, even though you are able to see?', [even though] you know that it is sorcery?
