Chapter of Ta Ha

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- T (Ta), H (Ha).

2- We have not sent the Qur’an down upon you that you may suffer hardships.

3- But only as a reminder to those who fear (Allah).

4- (It is) A revelation sent down from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens.

5- The All-Merciful (who) is firmly established on the Throne.

6- To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and on earth, and whatever is between them, and whatever is beneath the soil.

7- And whether you speak out loudly (or not), He knows the secret and what is most hidden.

8- Allah, there is no god but He. To Him belongs the Fairest Names.

9- And has the story of Moses come to you?

10- When he saw a fire, and said to his family, “Stay, for I perceive a fire; perhaps I can bring you some ember from it, or find some guidance at the fire.”

11- And when he came to it (the fire), he was called, “O Moses,

12- Verily I am your Lord! So (in My presence) take off your shoes: you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.

13- For I have chosen you, so hearken to what is revealed (to you).

14- Indeed I am Allah! There is no god but I, so worship Me, and establish proper prayer for My remembrance.

15- The Hour (of Judgement) is surely coming, I almost conceal it (but I reveal its signs to those who understand), so that every soul shall be rewarded for what it has done.

16- So, do not let those who do not believe in it (the Hour), but (only) follow their own lusts, turn you away from (believing in) it lest you should fall (into error).

17- And what is that in your right hand, Moses?”

18- He said, “It is my staff: on which I lean, and with which I beat down fodder for my sheep; and I have other purposes in it.”

19- He (Allah) said, “Cast it down, Moses!”

20- And he (Moses) cast it down, and behold, it turned into a slithering serpent!

21- He (Allah) said, “Take it, and do not fear! We shall return it to its former state.

22- And (now) press your hand to your side (under your arm): It shall come out (brightly) white, without harm, as another sign.

23- That We may show you (some) of Our great signs (miracles).

24- Go to Pharaoh, for he has, indeed, transgressed all bounds.”

25- He (Moses) said, “My Lord, lay open my chest (to accept Your Commands),

26- And ease my task for me,

27- and loosen the tie of my tongue,

28- That they may understand my words,

29- And give me an assistant from my own family,

30- Aaron, my brother,

31- to brace with him my back,

32- And to share with him my task,

33- That we may glorify You frequently,

34- And remember You a lot,

35- For indeed You have full-knowledge of us.”

36- He (Allah) said, “You are granted your request, O Moses!

37- And indeed We have bestowed favours upon you another time,

38- When We inspired your mother with (Our) revelation:

39- That you put him (the child Moses) into the chest, and throw it (the chest) into the river: the river shall cast him up on the bank, and he shall be taken by an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his. And I bestowed upon you love from Me, that you may be brought up under My eye.

40- When your sister walked by, and said, “Shall I direct you to someone who can nurse and rear him?” And so We returned you to your mother that she might be of good cheer, and that she might not grieve. And you killed a person, but We saved you from grief, and We tried you with many trials. For you stayed for years with the people of Madyan, and then you came for your ordained destiny, O Moses, (see 28:15-29)

41- for I have chosen you for Myself.

42- Go, you and your brother, with My signs, and do not slacken, either of you, in remembering Me.

43- Go, both of you, to Pharaoh for he has transgressed all bounds,

44- And say to him mild words; perchance he may remember (Allah’s bounties) or fear (Allah’s wrath).”

45- Both said, “O our Lord, we fear lest he should hasten with punishment against us, or that he may transgress all bounds.”

46- He (Allah) said, “Do not fear! I shall be with you both, I shall hear and see.

47- So, go to him (Pharaoh), and say, ‘We are both the Messengers of your Lord, so let the Children of Israel go with us, and do not punish them. Verily we have brought you a sign from your Lord. And peace shall be with those who follow guidance.

48- Indeed it has been revealed to us that punishment shall fall upon those who reject (Allah’s signs), and turn away (from them).'”

49- He (Pharaoh) said, “Then who is your Lord, Moses?”

50- He (Moses) said, “Our Lord is He Who gave everything (needed) to His creatures, and then He guided them.”

51- He (Pharaoh) said, “What then is the state of the earlier generations?”

52- He (Moses) said, “The knowledge of that is in a record with my Lord; my Lord never errs or forgets.

53- It is He Who has made the earth a cradle for you, and has put pathways in it for you, and He has sent down water from the sky with which We produce pairs of diverse plants.

54- So, eat and send your cattle to pasture; in that are signs for people of reason.

55- From it (earth) We did create you, and into it We shall return you (when you die), and from it We shall bring you out once more (for judgement).”

56- And indeed We showed him all Our Signs, but he rejected them and refused (to believe).

57- He (Pharaoh) said, “Have you come to drive us out of our land with your sorcery, O Moses?

58- We shall indeed bring you equal sorcery, so make an appointment between us and you, which (both) we and you shall not fail to keep, in an impartial place.”

59- He (Moses) said, “Your appointment shall be on the Day of the Festival, and let the people be assembled in broad daylight.”

60- So Pharaoh turned away, and put his schemes together, and then he came (to the appointment).

61- Moses said to them (Pharaoh and his chiefs), “Woe to you! Do not forge lies against Allah, lest He eradicates you by some punishment. For indeed those who forge falsehoods shall be frustrated.”

62- So, they debated their affairs among themselves, and they conferred secretly.

63- They said, “These two are certainly (expert) sorcerers: who desire to drive you out of your land with their magic, and to do away with your most eminent way (of life).

64 So, put your schemes together, and then come in ranks: for indeed he prospers today who gains the upper hand.”

65- They said, “O Moses, will you throw (first) or shall we be the first to throw?”

66- He said, “Nay, you throw (first)!” And behold: their ropes and their rods were made to appear to him, on account of their sorcery, to move along!

67- So Moses entertained a fear within himself.

68- We (Allah) said, “Do not fear! You shall be the uppermost!

69- And throw that which is in your right hand (your staff), and it shall swallow up what they have made: for they have only made a sorcerer’s trick: and the sorcerer never prospers wherever he goes.”

70- So, the sorcerers were impelled (by the truth) to fall down in prostration. They said, “We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses!”

71- He (Pharaoh) said, “Would you believe in Him (Allah) before I gave you permission? Surely he (Moses) must be your master, who has taught you magic! I will surely cut off your hands and legs from opposite sides, and I will crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and you shall certainly know which of the two of us (Allah or Pharaoh) is the most severe in punishment, and the most lasting!”

72- They (the sorcerers) said, “We shall not prefer you over the Clear Signs that have come to us, or over Him Who created us! So decree whatever you are desirous of decreeing: for you can only decree during life of this world.

73- We do believe in our Lord, that He may forgive us our sins, and what you compelled us to do of magic, for Allah is indeed best and most lasting.

74- Verily whoever comes to his Lord as a malefactor, then for him shall be Hell in which he shall never die (and be done with) or live (without pain).

75- And whoever comes to Him as a believer who has already done good deeds: those shall have the highest ranks.

76- (In) The Gardens of Eternity, beneath which rivers flow, to abide in them for ever, for that is the reward of those who purified themselves.

77- And We did indeed inspire Moses to travel by night with My servants, and strike a dry pathway for them through the sea, not fearing being overtaken (by Pharaoh) and not dreading (anything else).

78- And then Pharaoh pursued them with his hosts, and there came upon them of the waters that which overwhelmed them.

79- For indeed Pharaoh led his people astray and he did not guide them.

80- “O Children of Israel, We have certainly delivered you from your enemy, and We made with you an appointment at the right side of the mount (to give Moses the tablets), and We sent down upon you Manna and quails (for food in the wilderness).

81- Eat of the good things We have provided for your sustenance, but commit no excess in it (by hoarding or squandering it), lest My Wrath should (justly) fall upon you: for he upon whom My wrath falls shall certainly fall down (into Hell).

82- And indeed I am Ever-Forgiving towards him who repents (his past ill-deeds), believes (in Allah), and does good deeds, and then keep rightly-guided (to the straight path).

83- And what caused you to hasten (to the appointment) before your people, O Moses?”

84- He (Moses) said, “They are close on my footsteps: and I hastened to You, O my Lord, to please You.”

85- He (Allah) said, “We have put your people to the test after you (left), and the Samiri has led them astray.”

86- So Moses returned to his people, angry and sorrowful! He said, “O my people! did not your Lord promise you a handsome promise? Did then the time seem too long to you? Or did you desire that wrath from your Lord should descend upon you, and so you failed to keep your appointment with me?”

87- They said, “We did not fail to keep your appointment of our free will: but we were made to bear burdens of the ornaments of the people (of Pharaoh), and we cast them (into the fire), for thus did the Samiri suggest.”

88- So he produced for them (from the ornaments cast into the fire) an embodied image of a calf that made a lowing sound (through the passage of wind in it), and they said, “This is your god, and the god of Moses.” And so he (the Samiri) forgot (that a statue can never be a god).

89- Can they not see that it does not respond to their words, nor does it have power to harm or benefit them?

90- And before that Aaron had indeed said to them, “O my people, you are tried (for your faith) by it (the statue of the calf), for your Lord is the All-Merciful, so follow me, and obey my command.”

91- They said, “We will not cease worshipping it assiduously till Moses returns to us.”

92- He (Moses) said, “O Aaron, what prevented you, when you saw that they had gone astray?

93- Would you not follow me? Would you disobey my commands?”

94- He (Aaron) said, “O son of my mother, do not seize me by my beard or by (the hair of) my head: I feared lest you should say that I had divided up the Children of Israel, and that I did not wait for your word (on this matter).”

95- He (Moses) said, “What is the matter with you, O Samiri?”

96- He (the Samiri) said, “I knew what they did not know of (the art of sculpture): so I took a handful of what the Messenger left behind (the oneness of Allah in his teachings), and cast it away, for thus did my self prompt me.”

97- He (Moses) said, “Be gone then! but verily, for you in this life (your punishment is that) you shall say, ‘Touch me not (being fearful of punishment)!’; and you shall have an appointment (on the Day of Judgement) that you shall not fail to keep. And look at your god that you continued to worship assiduously. We shall burn it up, and we shall grind and scatter it utterly into the sea.”

98- For indeed, your God is Allah: there is no god but He. He has comprehensive knowledge of everything.”

99- Thus do We narrate to you (O Muhammad) of the tidings that happened before, for indeed We have given you from Our Own Presence a Reminder (the Qur’an).

100- Whoever turns away from it (the Qur’an) he shall carry, on the Day of Resurrection, a burden (of sins).

101- Abiding under it (and its punishment) for ever, and what an evil burden for them on the Day of Resurrection!

102- The day when the trumpet shall be sounded: We shall gather the malefactors, bleary-eyed (with terror).

103- They shall whisper to one another, “You have stayed (alive on earth) for only ten (days).”

104- We know best what they shall say when the one with the best opinion among them shall say, “Indeed, you have stayed only for a day! (for so it seemed to him)”

105- And they ask you about the mountains: say, “My Lord shall grind and scatter them utterly;

106- and then He shall leave them (the mountains) as a desolate plain.

107- You shall see no depression or elevation in it.

108- On that Day, they shall follow the Summoner unswervingly, and all voices shall be hushed in humbleness before the All-Merciful, for nothing shall you hear but the shuffling (of their feet as they march).

109- On that day, intercession shall be of no avail except for those whom the All-Merciful shall grant leave, and accept their words.

110- He (Allah) knows what is before them (their future), and what is behind them (their past), while they can never have full knowledge of Him.

111- And all faces shall be humbled before (Allah) the Ever-Living, the Eternal Guardian, for indeed those who are burdened by wrong-doing shall come to no good.

112- But whoever does any of the good deeds, and is a believer, he shall have no fear of injustice or of withholding (his due reward).

113- And thus have We sent it (the Qur’an) down: an Arabic Recitation, and displayed in it a variety of warnings, in order that they may fear Allah, or that it may bring about their remembrance (of Allah).

114- So, Exalted be Allah, the True Sovereign King. And do not hasten with (reciting) the Qur’an before its revelation is completed for you, and say, “O my Lord, give me more knowledge!”

115- And indeed We made a covenant with Adam long before, but he forgot (Allah’s warning against Iblees), and We did not find constancy of purpose in him. (see 20:117)

116- And when We said to the angels, “Prostrate yourselves in front of Adam (acknowledging Allah’s handiwork and his superior knowledge), they prostrated themselves except Iblees, he refused. (see 38:75 and 2:31-34)

117- And so We said, “O Adam, this is an enemy for you and for your wife, so let him not drive you out of the Garden lest you should suffer hardships.

118- In it, be sure that you will not go hungry or go naked,

119- And that you will never suffer from thirst in it, or from the sun’s heat.”

120- But Satan whispered evil to him: he said, “O Adam! shall I guide you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that will never decay?”

121- So they both ate from it, and their shameful parts (genitalia) appeared to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the Garden over their bodies. And Adam disobeyed his Lord, for he was seduced.

122- And then his Lord chose drew him near, relented towards him, and guided him (to repentance). (see 2:37 and 7:23)

123- He (Allah) said, “Get ye down, both of you, from it (the Garden), all of you (with Iblees too), some of you shall be enemies to the others, Then if there comes to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My guidance shall neither go astray, nor suffer hardships. (see 2:38)

124- But whosoever turns away from My remembrance, he shall surely have a straitened life, and We shall gather him blind on the Day of Resurrection.”

125- He (the disbeliever) shall say, “O my Lord, why have you gathered me blind when I was able to see (before)?”

126- He (Allah) shall say, “For thus did Our revelations come to you, but you disregarded them, and likewise you shall be disregarded this day.”

127- For thus do We punish him who transgressed and did not believe in the revelations of his Lord. For indeed, the punishment of the Hereafter is severer and more lasting.

128- Is it not clear to them how many generations before them We had destroyed, in whose dwellings they (now) walk? Verily, in that are lessons for people of reason.

129- For had it not been for a Word that had already been given by your Lord (postponing their punishment to the Hereafter), it would have been inevitable and an appointed term (for punishing them in this life).

130- So patiently endure what they say (of lies against you), and glorify and praise your Lord before sun-rise and before its setting, and glorify Allah during the hours of the night, and at the ends of the day, that you may be well-pleased (with whatever Allah shall give you).

131- And do not cast your eyes longingly at what We made some parties among them enjoy of the flowery splendour of worldly life, for We try them by it; and (know that) your Lord’s provisions (in Paradise) are better and more lasting.

132- And enjoin your family with prayer, and persevere patiently in performing it. We do not ask you for provision; it is We Who provide you. And the final reward is for piety (which is the best provision for the Hereafter). (see 2:197)

133- And they (the disbelievers) say, “Why does not he (Muhammad) bring us a sign (a miracle) from his Lord?” Has not a clear proof come to them of what is in the earlier revealed books (that when a people do not believe in Allah’s miracles, He destroys them forthwith)? (see 17:59, 5:112-115, 21:6)

134- And had We destroyed them by a punishment before him (Muhammad), they would have said, “O our Lord, why have not You sent us a Messenger that we may follow Your revelations before being humbled and disgraced?”

135- Say, “All are waiting, so wait, for you shall know who are the followers of the straight and even path, and those who are rightly-guided.”

Chapter of Mary

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- K (Kaf), H (Ha’), Y (Ya’), A (Ain), S (Sad) (by such letters of the alphabet is this inimitable book written).

2- An account of the mercy of your Lord upon His servant Zechariah (Zakariyah).

3- Behold! He called out to his Lord in secret supplication.

4- He said, “O my Lord, I have become weak of bones, and my head is ablaze with white hairs; and I have never been unhappy by invoking You.

5- Now, I fear (for) my dependants after me: and my wife is barren: so grant me, from Your Own Presence, an heir,

6- who shall inherit me, and inherit of (the knowledge of) the house of Jacob, and make him, O my Lord, well-pleasing (to you).

7- “O Zechariah (Zakariya)! We give you good news of a son: His name shall be John (Yahya): none have We created with the same name before.”

8- He said, “O my Lord, how can I have a boy, when my wife is barren, and I have reached extreme old age?”

9- He (the angel) said, “It shall be so! Your Lord says, ‘It is easy to Me, for indeed I created you before, when you were nothing.'”

10- He (Zechariah) said, “O My Lord, make me a sign.” He (Allah) said, “Your sign shall be that you, while perfectly sound, will not be able to speak to the people for three days.”

11- So he (Zechariah) came out to his people from the praying chamber, and told them by signs to glorify Allah in the early morning and at eventide.

12- “O John, hold fast to the Book (the Torah).” And We endowed him with: wisdom while still a child,

13- and kind-heartedness from Our Own, and exalting virtue, for he was pious (God-fearing),

14- and dutiful to his parents, And he was not overbearing or rebellious.

15- Peace be upon him: the day he was born, and the day he died, and the day he shall be resurrected to life.

16- And mention in the Book (the Qur’an) Mary (Maryam), when she retired away from her family to an easterly place.

17- And then she screened herself from them, and We sent Our Spirit (the angel Gabriel) to her, and he appeared before her as a perfectly-moulded man.

18- She (Mary) said, “I seek refuge in the All-Merciful (Allah) from you if you are God-Fearing.”

19- He (Gabriel) said, “I am only the Messenger of your Lord, to confer upon you (the gift of) a virtuous son.”

20- She said, “How can I have a boy when no man has ever touched me, nor am I a whore?”

21- He (Gabriel) said, “It shall be so! Your Lord says, ‘It is easy to Me, for We shall make him a sign to mankind, and a mercy from Us.’ for it is a matter already decreed (by your Lord).”

22- So she bore him (in her womb), and she retired with him to a remote place.

23- And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree: She said (in her anguish), “Ah! would that I had died before this, and had been a thing neglected and forgotten!”

24- But he (the angel) called her from below her, “Grieve not! for your Lord has provided a rivulet beneath you;

25- and shake towards yourself the trunk of the palm tree: it will let fall upon you fresh ripe dates, fit for harvesting.

26- So eat and drink and be of good cheer, and if you see any human being, say (by signs), ‘I have vowed a fast to the All-Merciful, and today I shall not talk to any human being.'”

27- And then she came to her people carrying him (Jesus). They said, “O Mary! Truly, you have done an astoundingly vile thing!

28- O sister of Aaron (descendant of Aaron), your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother a whore.”

29- So, she pointed at him. They said, “How could we talk to one who is a babe in the cradle?”

30- He (Jesus) said, “I am the servant of Allah, He gave me the Book (the Gospel), and He made me a Prophet,

31- and He made me blessed wherever I am, and He enjoined prayer and the exalting virtues upon me as long as I live.

32- And (He enjoined me) to be dutiful to my mother, and He did not make me an overbearing wretch.

33- Peace be upon me: the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be resurrected to life.”

34- That was Jesus the son of Mary, a statement of truth about which they doubt.

35- It is not for Allah to beget a son. Glory be to Him! Whenever He decrees a matter, He only says, “Be!” and it is!

36- (Jesus said,) “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. This is a straight path (leading to happiness in this world and in the Hereafter).”

37- And then the parties differed among themselves (some claiming that Jesus is the son of Allah, and others denying it). So woe to those who disbelieve (in the oneness of Allah) from the sight of a great day (the Day of Resurrection).

38- How clearly shall they hear and see on that day when they come to Us! But indeed, the wrong-doers today have strayed into evident error.

39- And warn them of the Day of Regret when the matter shall be decided; while (now) they wallow in heedlessness for they would not believe.

40- Indeed We shall inherit the earth and whoever is on it, and to Us they shall be returned (for judgement).

41- And mention in the Book (the Qur’an) Abraham. Indeed he was a truthful believer, a Prophet.

42- When he said to his father, “O father, why do you worship that which can not hear, or see, or avail you anything?

43- O father, there has come to me of knowledge that which has not come to you, so follow me and I shall guide you to a path that is straight and even.

44- O father, do not worship the Evil One (by obeying his commands), for indeed the Evil One has always been rebellious against the All-Merciful.

45- O father, I fear lest you should be touched with punishment from the All-Merciful, and become a follower of the Evil One.”

46- He (Abraham’s father) said, “Are you rejecting my gods, Abraham? If you do not desist, I will certainly stone you, so (now) leave me for a long time.”

47- He (Abraham) said, “Peace be upon you: I will ask my Lord to forgive you: for He was Most Gracious towards me.

48- And I will keep myself away from you (all) and from what you invoke instead of Allah, and I will call upon my Lord for perhaps by calling upon my Lord I will not be unhappy.”

49- And when he kept himself away from them and from what they worship instead of Allah, We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob, and We made both of them Prophets.

50- And We granted them of Our mercy, and We ordained for them sublime tongues that speak the truth about them (among all nations and for all time).

51- And mention Moses in the Book, for he was purified (for Our service), and he was a Messenger (of Allah), a Prophet.

52- And We called him from the right side of the mount, and drew him near Us for private conference.

53- And We granted him, out of Our mercy, his brother Aaron as a Prophet (to help him).

54- And mention in the Book Ishmael (Ismail)). He was true to his promises, and he was a Messenger (from Allah), a Prophet.

55- And he used to enjoin his people with prayers, and the exalting virtues, and his Lord was well-pleased with him.

56- And mention in the Book Idrees. Indeed he was a truthful believer, a Prophet.

57- And We raised him to a sublime place.

58- Those (mentioned above) are they upon whom Allah had bestowed his grace of the Prophets from among the offspring of Adam, and from among those that We carried with Noah (in the ark), and from among the offspring of Abraham and Israel (Jacob), and from among those that We guided and chose. Whenever the revelations of the All-Merciful were recited upon them, they fell down, prostrating themselves and weeping.

59- But after them there followed wicked descendants who neglected prayers, and followed their lusts. Indeed they shall face the reward of wrong-doing.

60- Except those who repented and did good deeds, for they shall enter the Garden, and they shall not be wrongfully deprived of anything (of their rights).

61- (They shall enter) The Gardens of Eternity which the All-Merciful has promised to His servants while yet unseen (but believed in): for His promise must come to pass.

62- There, they shall hear no vain talk, but only: “Peace!” and they shall have their sustenance (of whatever they desire) in it in the early morning and at eventide.

63- That is the Garden which We shall make its inheritors those of Our servants who were god-fearing.

64- And we (the God-fearing) do not take our proper places (in the Garden) except by the command of your Lord, for He knows all that is before us (the future), and all that was behind us (the past), and all that is in between (the present) for your Lord is never forgetful (of anything that we do or of anything that He promises). (see 4:95-96, 6:83, 6:132, etc.)

65- (He is) The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and what is between them: so worship Him, and persevere patiently in worshipping Him: do you know anyone beside Him worthy of His name?

66- And man says, “Shall I, when I am already dead, be brought out alive?”

67- Does not man remember that We created him before when he was nothing?

68- By your Lord, We shall certainly gather them all together as well as the evil ones, and then We shall bring them around Hell on their knees.

69- And then We certainly shall tear out from each group those who were worst in insolent rebellion against the All-Merciful.

70- And besides, We certainly know best those who are most deserving of being burned in it.

71- And indeed, not one of you but shall arrive at it (kneeling around Hell), an inevitable event decreed by your Lord. (see 19: 68 and 21:101)

72- And then We shall safely deliver those who feared Allah, and We shall leave the wrong-doers on their knees in it.

73- For when Our revelations were clearly recited to them (the disbelievers), they said to those who believed, “Which of the two groups (the believers and the disbelievers) is better in status, or has better assemblies?”

74- But how many generations before them have We destroyed, who had even more imposing furnishings and looks!

75- Say, “Those who wallow in misguidance, the All-Merciful shall extend (the rope) fully to them, until, when they see what they were promised: either the punishment (in this world) or the Hour (of Judgement) they shall at length realize who has the worst position and the weakest troops!”

76- For Allah gives more guidance to those who are guided (thus strengthening their faith) for the enduring good deeds (which they did) shall have the best reward with your Lord, and are the best in their hoped-for returns.

77- Have you seen him, who disbelieved in Our revelations, and said, “I shall certainly be given wealth and children!”?

78- Has he had a look at the unseen (future), or has he made a covenant with the All-Merciful?

79- Nay! We shall record what he says, and We shall greatly extend his punishment.

80- For We shall inherit that which he claimed (of wealth and children), and (on the Day of Judgement,) he shall come before Us alone.

81- And they (the polytheists) have taken (for worship) gods other than Allah, to be their power and support!

82- Nay, they (their alleged gods) shall reject their worship, and shall be their adversaries (on the Day of Judgement).

83- Have you not seen that We have sent the evil ones against the disbelievers, to incite them with such a fury (towards committing more sins)?

84- So, do not seek to hasten (Allah’s punishment) against them, for We are indeed counting (their evil deeds) against them fully.

85- The Day when We shall gather the God-fearing to the All-Merciful as an honoured company.

86- And We shall drive the malefactors to hell, like thirsty cattle driven to water.

87- None shall have the power of intercession (on the Day of Judgement) except him who has made a covenant with the All-Merciful (being a true believer).

88- And they say, “The All-Merciful has begotten a son!”

89- You have indeed come with a most heinous thing (a terrible allegation).

90- At it, the heavens could almost burst, the earth could split open, and the mountains could break down in utter ruin,

91- That they attributed a son to the All-Merciful.

92- For it does not become the All-Merciful to beget a son!

93- Indeed, all that are in the heavens or the earth shall only approach the All-Merciful as servants.

94- He has indeed counted them, and enumerated them exactly.

95- And each one of them shall come to Him singly on the Day of Resurrection.

96- Indeed, upon those who believe and do good deeds, Allah shall bestow (His) love.

97- For indeed We have made it (the Qur’an) easy on your tongue that you may give a message of good cheer to the God-fearing, and to warn by it a contentious people.

98- But how many (countless) generations before them have We destroyed? Can you feel a single one of them (now) or hear (so much as) a whisper from them?

Chapter of the Cave

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- Praise be to Allah Who has sent the Book (the Qur’an) down to His servant, and He has allowed in it no crookedness (deviation from the truth).

2- (And He has made it) Upright! To warn about a dreadful punishment from His Own Presence, and to give a message of good cheer to the believers who do good deeds that they shall have a good reward (the Garden),

3- abiding in it for ever.

4- And to warn those who say, “Allah has begotten a son.”

5- They do not have any knowledge of such a thing (that Allah has begotten a son), nor did their fathers. What a grievous word that issues from their mouths! Verily, they say nothing but lies.

6- For you may only fret yourself to death, grieving after them, if they do not believe in this saying (the Qur’an).

7- Surely We have made whatever is on earth an adornment for it, that We may test which of them does the best deeds.

8- And indeed, We shall make what is on it a parched topping (of desiccated vegetation and dried bones on the Day of Resurrection).

9- Or did you (O Muhammad) reckon that the companions of the cave and of the inscribed tablet (bearing their names and their story) were wonders among Our signs?

10- When the young men betook themselves to the cave for safety they said, “Our Lord, bestow on us mercy from Your Own Presence, and make it easy for us to have guidance in our affair.”

11- And so, We let sleep overcome them in the cave for a number of years.

12- And then We woke them up, in order to know which of the two parties (disputing about them) was best at calculating the time they had stayed (asleep in the cave).

13- We narrate to you their story with truthfulness, for they were certainly young men who believed in their Lord, and We gave them more guidance.

14- And We strengthened their hearts, when they stood up (against their people), and they said, “Our Lord is the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth, and we shall never call, other than Him, upon any (other) god, for then we would be saying an outrageous lie.

15- These, our people, have taken other gods than Him. Why do not they bring a clear argument on their behalf? For indeed, who is then more wrong than he who fabricates lies and attributes them to Allah?

16- And now that you have turned away from them and that which they worship other than Allah, then seek shelter in the cave: your Lord will extend some of his mercy to you, and prepare for your sakes some means of livelihood.”

17- And you might have seen the sun when it rose inclining away to the right of their cave, and when it set turning away from them to the left, while they lay in a recess of it (the cave). That is of the signs of Allah. Whomever Allah guides is rightly-guided; but he whom Allah leaves to stray, you will not find for him a guiding friend.

18- And you would have reckoned them awake while they were asleep, for We turned them on their right and on their left sides, while their dog lay stretching its two forelegs on the threshold. Had you seen them, you would certainly have turned your back on them in flight, and you would have been filled with terror.

19- And thus did We awaken them that they may question one another. One of them said, “How long did you stay?” They said, “We stayed a day or a part of a day.” (And as they were unsure) They said, “Allah knows best how long we stayed, so send one of you with these silver pieces of yours to the town, and let him find out which is the best food (to be had) and bring to you sustenance from it, and let him behave with courtesy, and let him not inform any one about you.

20- For if they should gain the upper hand over you, they will stone you to death, or return you to their religion; and then you shall never prosper (in this life or in the Hereafter).”

21- And thus did We let them be found, that they might know that the promise of Allah (about resurrection) is true, and that there is no doubt about the Hour (of Resurrection). When they (the town’s people) disputed among themselves about their affair (after the young men died), they said, “Build a wall over them (to close the cave), for their Lord knows best about them.” Those who prevailed over their affair said, “We shall raise over them a place of worship.”

22- They will say they were three, their fourth being their dog; and they will say they were five, their sixth being their dog, conjecturing about the unknown; and they will say they were seven, their eighth being their dog. Say, “My Lord knows best their number, for no one knows about them but a few.” Therefore, do not argue about them, except for (telling) the clear argument (that has been revealed to you), nor consult any of them about them (the Companions of the Cave).

23- And never say about anything, “I shall do that tomorrow,

24- except (following it with:) if Allah wills!” And remember your Lord when you forget, and say, “May be my Lord shall guide me nearer to the right way.”

25- And they stayed in their cave for three hundred (solar) years, and are increased by nine (to become 309 lunar years).

26- Say, “Allah knows best how long they stayed, for to Him belongs the unseen (secrets) of the heavens and the earth. How clearly does He see and hear (everything)! They have no protector other than Him, and He does not share His command with anyone.”

27- And recite (O Muhammad) that which has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord: for no one can change His words, and you can never find a refuge with anyone but Him (if you do not deliver the message).

28- And keep yourself constantly with those who call on their Lord in the morning and at eventide, seeking (their Lord) Himself; and let not your eyes pass beyond them, seeking the pomp and glitter of this life; nor obey anyone whose heart We have permitted to neglect the remembrance of Us, one who follows his own vain desires, and whose case is lost.

29- And say (O Muhammad), “The truth (the Qur’an) is from your Lord; so whoever wills let him believe, and whoever wills let him disbelieve.  We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire that shall surround them like a pavilion, and when they cry for succouring rain, they shall be succoured with water like boiling oil, that shall roast their faces. What an evil drink, and what an evil reclining place!

30- As for those who believe and do righteous deeds, indeed, We shall never allow the reward of those who did good deeds to be lost.

31- Those (believers) shall have the Gardens of Eternity, beneath which rivers flow, and they shall be adorned in them with bracelets of gold, and they shall wear green garments of fine silk and brocade; reclining in them on (soft) couches. How good the reward, and what an excellent reclining place!

32- And set forth for them the example of two men: We granted one of them two gardens of vines which We surrounded with palm-trees, and We made between them a cultivated field.

33- Both gardens brought forth their fruits, and did not fail in (producing) any of it; and We caused a river to gush forth through it.

34- And he had (abundant) produce, so he said to his friend while conversing with him, “I have more money than you and mightier followers.”

35- And he entered his garden, having wronged himself by saying, “I do not think that this (garden) will ever perish,

36- Nor do I think that the Hour (of Judgement) is coming, and even if I should return to my Lord, I shall surely find a better place of return than it.”

37- His friend said to him while he was conversing with him, “Would you disbelieve in Him Who created you from dust (as He created Adam), and then from a drop (of your father’s semen), and then He moulded you perfectly into a man?

38- But indeed He is Allah, my Lord, and I associate no one as partner to my Lord.

39- Why do you not, when you enter your garden, say, ‘Whatever Allah wills (shall be); there is no power save by Allah!’? If you regard me as less than you in wealth and children,

40- It may be that my Lord will give me something better than your garden, and that He will send on it a punishing thunderbolt from heaven, turning it into a slippery topping (of destroyed vegetation).

41- Or its (the garden’s) water may be deeply-sunken underground so that you will never be able to find it!”

42- So his fruits were blighted, and he remained twisting his hands in grief over what he had spent on it (of money and effort), for it was (then) devastated with tumbled trellis-works; and he kept saying, “Would that I never associated any one with my Lord!”

43- And he had no party to help him against Allah, and he could never be helped.

44- There (in the Hereafter), the only succour comes from Allah, the True One; He (Allah) is the Best to reward, and the Best to give a successful outcome.

45- And set forth for them the example of this worldly life, for it is like the water (rain) which We send down from they sky, and the plants of earth mingle with it (and become green and luxuriant), but soon it becomes chaff, which the winds do scatter: for Allah is Omnipotent over all things.

46- Wealth and sons are the adornments of this worldly life, but enduring good deeds have the best reward with your Lord, and have a far better expectation.

47- On the day when We shall set the mountains in motion, and you shall see the earth standing bare, and We shall gather them all together, and We shall not leave a single one of them.

48- And they shall be brought up before your Lord in rows, (and it shall be said to them,) “You have come to Us (single, naked, and helpless) as We had created you the first time! Nay, you claimed that We shall never appoint a meeting for you (with Us for Judgement).”

49- And the Book (of one’s record) shall be placed (in the right hand of the good, and in the left hand of the evil), and you shall see the malefactors fearful of what is in it, and saying, “Woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or big but it counts it?!” And they shall find all that they had done present (before their eyes); for your Lord does not wrong anyone!

50- Behold, We said to the angels, “Prostrate yourselves in front of Adam (acknowledging Allah’s handiwork and Adam’s superior knowledge).” And they prostrated themselves except Iblees, who was one of the Jinn, and he disobeyed the command of his Lord. Would you take him and his offspring as protectors instead of Me, while they are your enemies? What an evil substitute for the wrong-doers!

51- I did not call them (Iblees and his offspring) to witness the creation of heavens and the earth, nor (even) their own creation: for it is not for Me to take as supporter such as those who lead (men) astray.

52- And on the Day (of Judgement) He shall say, “Call on those whom you claimed to be My partners, and they will call on them, but they will not respond to them; for We shall make between them a place of perdition.

53- And the malefactors shall see the Fire and then they shall know for certain that they shall be falling in it: and they shall find no place to turn away to from it.

54- And We have indeed fully explained in this Qur’an, for the benefit of mankind, all kinds of examples; but Man is the most argumentative of beings (always denying the obvious truth).

55- And nothing prevents mankind  from believing, now that guidance (the Qur’an) has come to them, or from praying their Lord for forgiveness, unless they are waiting for Allah’s way with earlier generations (of destroying the disbelievers) to come to them, or for the punishment to be brought before them!

56- And We never send the Messengers except as heralds of good cheer (to the believers) or as warners (to the disbelievers), but those who disbelieve dispute with falsehoods in order to refute the truth; for they used My revelations and what they were warned about as an object of ridicule.

57- And who is more wrong than he who is reminded of his Lord’s revelations, and then he turns away from them, and forgets that which his hands has advanced (of evil deeds) on his behalf (for the Day of Judgement). Indeed, We have put veils on their hearts, so that they can not understand it, and (We have put) deafness in their ears. And if you call them to guidance, they shall never be guided.

58- And your Lord, the Ever-Forgiving, the Lord of Mercy, if He should call them to account for what they have earned (of evil deeds), He would hasten the punishment for them. Nay, they shall have their appointed time (of punishment), beyond which they shall find no retreat.

59- And those communities (that We told you about), We destroyed them when they did wrong, and We made an appointed time for their destruction.

60- Behold, Moses said to his boy-servant, “I will not quit until I reach the junction of the two seas even if I have to spend ages (in travel).”

61- But when they reached their junction, they forgot their fish, and it took off, burrowing directly into the sea.

62- And when they had gone beyond (the junction), he (Moses) said to his boy, “Bring us our early meal; truly we have suffered much fatigue in this journey.”

63- He (Moses’ boy-servant) said, “Do you remember when we took refuge at the rock? For I forgot the fish, and only Satan could have caused me to forget and not to remember it, and strangely enough, it took its way into the sea!”

64- Moses said, “That is what we were seeking after.” So they went back on their tracks, retracing their footsteps.

65- And they found one of Our servants whom We have granted mercy from Us, and whom We have taught knowledge from Our Own Presence.

66- Moses said to him, “May I follow you, provided that you teach me, out of what you have been taught, true guidance?”

67- He (the man of knowledge) said, “Indeed you will never be able to be patient with me;

68- For how can you have patience with things about which you have no comprehension?”

69- He (Moses) said, “You shall find me, If Allah wills it, patient, and I shall not disobey any of your commands.”

70- He said, “Well then, if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I start mentioning it to you.”

71- So they took off: until, when they boarded a ship, he made a hole in it. He (Moses) said, “Have you made a hole in it to drown its people? You have indeed done a dreadful thing!”

72- He said, “Have I not said that you could never have patience with me?”

73- He (Moses) said, “Do not call me to account for having forgot, and do not make it hard on me.”

74- And then they went forth: until, when they met a young man, he slew him. Moses said, “Have you slain an innocent person without his having slain anyone? Indeed, you have done an awful thing!”

75- He said, “Have I not said to you that you could never have patience with me?”

76- He (Moses) said, “If I ever ask you about anything after this, do not accompany me: you have certainly received (full) excuses from me.”

77- And then they went forth: until, when they came to the people of a certain town, they asked them for food, but they refused to give them their hospitality. And they found there a wall on the point of falling down, but he (the man of knowledge) set it up straight. He (Moses) said, “Had you wished it, surely, you could have taken wages for it!”

78- He (the man of knowledge) said, “This is (the time of) parting between you and me! I shall tell you the interpretation of that with which you could have no patience.

79- As for the ship, it belonged to some needy men who worked in the sea: so I wanted to render it (temporarily) unserviceable, for there was after them a certain king who seized on every (working) ship by force.

80- As for the youth, his parents were believers, and we (Allah and I) feared that he would overburden them by rebellious transgressing and disbelief.

81- So we desired that their Lord would give them in exchange (a son) more blessed with exalting virtue than him and more prone to kindness.

82- As for the wall: it belonged to two orphan youths in the town, and beneath it was a treasure intended for them, and as their father was righteous, your Lord desired that they should attain their full maturity, and bring out their treasure as a mercy from your Lord. And indeed I did not do it out of my own accord (it was so ordered by Allah). That is the interpretation of that which you could have no patience with.”

83- And they ask you about Him of the Two Horns (Zul-Qarnain, a God-fearing king whose identity is controversial). Say (O Muhammad), “I shall recite to you some account of him.

84- Verily, We endowed him with power on earth, and We gave him of everything a way (to achieve it).

85- So he followed a way,

86- Until, when he came to the setting of the sun, he found it (seemingly) setting in a well of dark muddy water, and he found near it a people. We said, “O Ye of the Two Horns, either punish them (for their wrong-doing), or use kindliness with them (by teaching them true religion).”

87- He said, “As for him who does wrong, we shall punish him, and then he shall be brought back to his Lord, Who shall punish him an awful punishment!

88- But he who believes (in Allah) and does good deeds, he shall be rewarded with the best reward, and we shall tell him of our commands that which is easy.

89- And then he followed a (different) way,

90- Until, when he came to the rising of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We had provided no cover (or clothes to protect them) against it (the sun).

91- Likewise (he treated them), for indeed We have full knowledge of what he had (of abilities).

92- And then he followed a (third) way,

93- Until, when he reached (a place) between two towering mountains, he found, below them, a people who scarcely understood (his) words.

94- They said (through interpreters), “O Ye of the Two Horns, Gog and Magog are indeed making mischief in the land. Shall we then make a recompense for you in order to make a barrier between us and them?”

95- He said, “What Allah has endowed me of power is better (than what you offer me), so help me with strength (and labour): I will erect a filled-up barrier between you and them:

96- Bring me blocks of iron.” At length, when he had leveled up (the space) between the two (steep) mountain sides, he said, blow (with your bellows)! And when he had made it (as red) as fire, he said, “Bring me molten brass to pour over it.”

97- And so, they (Gog and Magog) were unable to scale it, nor had they the power of cutting through it.

98- He said, “This (barrier) is a mercy from my Lord, but when the promise of my Lord comes to pass (on the Day of Resurrection), He shall cause it to be crushed into dust; for my Lord’s promise is ever true.”

99- On that day, We shall leave them to surge tumultuously against one another: and the trumpet shall be blown, and We shall gather them all together.

100- And we shall set Hell that day before the disbelievers, visibly displayed,

101- (For) Those whose eyes had been under a cover (of disbelief preventing them) from My remembrance, and who had been unable even to hear.

102- Do those who disbelieve think that they can take My servants as protectors instead of Me? Verily, We have prepared Hell for the disbelievers as their dwelling place.

103- Say (O Muhammad), “Shall We tell you who lost most of their deeds?”

104- Those are they whose efforts have been in vain in this life, while they think that they are doing good.

105- They are those who deny the revelations of their Lord and their meeting of Him (for judgement in the Hereafter): their works shall come to nothing, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall not give them any weight (or importance).

106- That is their punishment, Hell, for they disbelieved and they used My revelations and My Messengers as objects of ridicule.

107- Verily, those who believe, and do righteous deeds, they shall have the Gardens of Paradise as their dwelling place.

108- They shall abide in them for ever; no turning away from them shall they wish for themselves.

109- Say, “If the sea were ink for the words of my Lord, sooner would the sea be exhausted before the words of my Lord, even if we added another sea like it for its replenishment.”

110- Say, “I am a human being, just like you. It is revealed to me that your Lord is only One God. So, whoever hopes to meet his Lord, let him do righteous deeds, and let him associate no one in worship with his Lord.”

Chapter of the Night Journey

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- Glory be to Him (Allah) who took His servant (Muhammad) for a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque (at Makkah) to the Farthest Mosque, whose precincts we did bless in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing. (see 53:13-18)

2- And We gave Moses the Book (the Torah), and We made it a guidance to the Children of Israel, (saying), “Do not take a Guardian other than Me.”

3- (For you are) The offspring of those whom We carried with Noah (in the ark). Indeed he was a grateful servant.

4- And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the Book that you shall make mischief in the land twice, and that you shall become haughty and greatly arrogant.

5- And when the promised first punishment of the two came to pass, We sent against you servants of Ours (The Babylonians in 586 BC) accustomed to violent warfare: They ravaged the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a promise fulfilled.

6- Then We returned to you the upper hand over them: and We provided you with wealth and sons, and We made you more numerous in fighting men.

7- If you do good, then you do good to yourselves, and if you do evil, it is against yourselves. And when the promise of the latter punishment came to pass, they (Our servants the Romans in 70 AD) were to shame your faces, and to enter the mosque (the Temple) as they had entered it the first time, and to annihilate whatever they conquered completely.

8- It may be that your Lord will have mercy upon you, but if you return (to evil) We shall return (with punishment); for We have made Hell a prison for the disbelievers.

9- Verily this Qur’an guides to that which is most proper, and it gives a message of good cheer to the believers who do good deeds that they shall have a great reward.

10- And that for those who do not believe in the Hereafter (and scornfully pray for its coming), We have prepared a painful punishment.

11- For man prays for evil as he prays for good; for man has ever been hasty! (see 42:18)

12- And We have made the Night and the Day as two (of Our) signs; then We blotted out the sign of the night, and We made the sign of the day illuminating; that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and that you may know the number of years and the reckoning (of time); for indeed We have created everything perfectly to the last detail.

13- And to every man We have fastened his own deeds to his own neck: and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall bring out for him a record (of his deeds) which he shall find wide open.

14- (And it shall be said to him,) “Read your record! Today, you are reckoner enough against yourself.”

15- Whoever is rightly-guided, he is guided for his own good: but whoever strays, he only errs against himself. Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another’s burden (of sin), nor would we punish (anyone) until We send a messenger (to give warning). (see 16:25)

16- And when We decide to destroy a community, We command its people who live in luxury (to obey Allah), but they transgress in it; so they justly deserve the word (of punishment) against them: then we destroy them utterly.

17- And how many generations after Noah did We destroy! For your Lord is Aware and All-Seeing enough of the sins of His servants.

18- Whoever desires the fleeting worldly life We give him in advance whatever We desire to whomever We please, and then We ordain for him Hell to be burnt in it disgraced and rejected (from Allah’s mercy).

19- And whoever desires (the reward of) the Hereafter, and diligently strives for (gaining) it, and he is a believer, then those are the ones whose endeavours are worthy of reward (by Allah).

20- Both these (the believers) and those (the disbelievers) do We bestow of the bounty of your Lord (in this world), for your Lord’s bounty is never forbidden.

21- Look how We have endowed some with more favours than others! But verily the Hereafter has greater ranks and greater preferment.

22- Do not associate another god with Allah lest you should become disgraced and forsaken.

23- For your Lord has decreed that you should not worship any but Him, and that you should show kindness to (your) parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age, do not say, “Fie!” to them, nor scold them, but address them in honourable terms.

24- And humbly take them under your wing in mercy, and say, “My Lord, bestow on them Your mercy even as they raised me when I was young.”

25- Your Lord knows best what is in your hearts. If you are righteous, then He shall be All-Forgiving towards those who always return to Allah in repentance.

26- And give the near of kin his rights (in your charity), as well as the needy, and the wayfarer, and do not squander your wealth wastefully.

27- For verily the squanderers are the brothers of the evil ones (by heeding their evil whisperings); for the Evil One was ever ungrateful to His Lord.

28- And if you have to turn away from them (having nothing to give) and if you are still seeking mercy from your Lord which you hope for, then tell them comforting words.

29- And let not your hand be tied to your neck (so as not to spend), nor be extravagantly open-handed, so that you become blameworthy and regretful.

30- Verily your Lord expands the sustenance to whomsoever He pleases or constricts it; for surely of His servants He is All-Aware and All-Seeing.

31- And do not kill your children for fear of falling into poverty: We shall provide for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin. (see 6:137)

32- And do not approach fornication for it is an obscenity, and an evil way.

33- And do not kill any soul, that Allah has forbidden you to, except with justice; for whoever is slain wrongfully, we have given his heir authority (to demand retribution, accept blood-money or to forgive): but let him not exceed the limits of justice in taking life; for indeed he is supported (by the Law within these limits). (see 5:45 and4:92)

34- And do not approach the orphan’s wealth except in the most beneficial way (for him), until he attains full maturity. And fulfil your covenants; for covenants are a great responsibility (for which you shall be held accountable on the Day of Judgement).

35- And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with a straight just balance: that is best, and has a better outcome (for you).

36- And do not follow that of which you have no knowledge; for indeed (the blessings of) hearing, seeing and the heart; all those you shall be responsible for (how you use them).

37- And do not walk through the land swaggering insolently: for you can never penetrate the earth (by the strength of your step), nor can you reach the height of mountains.

38- The evil of all such things is hateful to your Lord.

39- That (the above-mentioned) is some of the wisdom that your Lord has revealed to you. So do not set up another god with Allah lest you should be cast in Hell, blameworthy and rejected (from Allah’s mercy).

40- Has Allah favoured you with sons, and taken for Himself females from among the angels (as daughters as you claim)? You certainly utter a heinous saying. (see 53:21-27)

41- And indeed We have fully explained (everything needed for man to prosper in this life and in the Hereafter) in this Qur’an, in order that they (the disbelievers) may take heed, but it only increases their repugnance.

42- Say (O Muhammad), “Had there been (other) gods with Him as they say, they would have sought a way to (overthrow) the Lord of the Throne.”

43- Glory be to Him, and exalted be He to great eminence above all that they say.

44- The seven heavens and the earth, and all that are in them glorify Him: there is not a thing but glorifies His praises; but you do not understand their glorification of Allah; surely Allah is Ever-Forbearing, All-Forgiving.

45- And when you recite the Qur’an, We put, between you and those who would not believe in the Hereafter, an invisible barrier.

46- And We put veils on their hearts so that they do not understand it, and (We put) deafness in their ears; for when you mention your Lord alone (without mentioning their false gods), they turn their backs in revulsion.

47- And We know best with what (mockery) they listen when they listen to you, for when they are privately talking, behold, the wrongdoers would say, “You only follow a bewitched man!” (see 6:10, 21:41, and 37:12-14)

48- Look how they set forth examples for you (likening you to a bewitched man, a priest or a poet)? For then they have strayed and could never find a way.

49- And they say, “What! Are we when we are reduced to bones and ashes, are we really going to be resurrected into a new creation?”

50- Say (O Muhammad), “Be ye stones or iron,

51- or some creation that your minds consider too great (to be given life, Allah can do it).” And then they shall say, “Who will cause us to return (to life)?” Say, “He Who created you the first time.” for then they shall wag their heads in wonderment at you, and say, “When will that be?” Say, “May be it will be quite soon,

52- on the Day (of Resurrection) when He shall summon you, and you shall respond, praising Him!” and you shall think that you have only stayed a little while (in your graves).”

53- And tell My servants to say that which is most gracious, for Satan is wont to incite evil among them; for indeed Satan is an avowed enemy to Man!

54- Your Lord knows you best; if He wills He shall have mercy on you, or if He wills He shall punish you. For indeed We have not sent you (O Muhammad) as their guardian (but only as a warner).

55- And your Lord knows best those who are in the heavens and the earth (and He chooses from among them those best suited for the job). And indeed We have favoured some of the Prophets above the others; for We gave David the Psalms (The Zabour or the Book of David).

56- Say, “Call upon those, besides Him, whom you claim (as gods): they have neither the power to relieve you from distress nor to transfer it (from you).”

57- Those (such as Jesus, Mary, the angels, the saints, etc.) whom they call upon, they themselves seek means of gaining favour; (vying) whoever of them shall be nearest (Allah), and they hope for His mercy, and fear His punishment. Indeed the punishment of your Lord is something to beware of!

58- And surely no community but We shall destroy before the Day of Resurrection or We shall punish it a grievous punishment (because of their evil doings); for that has indeed been written in the Book (the Preserved Tablet of Allah’s Decrees).

59- And indeed nothing prevents Us from sending the signs (miracles) except that the earlier generations rejected them, for We gave Thamud the she-camel as an eye-opening sign, but they wrongfully rejected her; for indeed We do not send signs except as a fearful warning (before utter destruction).

60- Behold! We told you that your Lord holds mankind in His power (so have no fear): for We did not grant you the vision (the night-journey) which We showed you but as a trial for men, as well as the cursed tree (the zaqqoum tree) in the Qur’an: for We frighten them (to repent), but it only increases their inordinate transgression. (see 37:62-67, 44:43-46)

61- And (remember) when We said to the angels, “Prostrate yourselves before Adam!” And they (all) prostrated themselves except Iblees who said, “Would I prostrate myself before that whom You have created from clay?”

62- He (Iblees) said, “Do You see this one whom You have honoured above me? If You but respite me to the Day of Resurrection, I will surely lead his descendants by the bridle, all but a few (the true believers)!”

63- He (Allah) said, “Go! Whoever follows you of them; verily, Hell shall be your reward, a full recompense.

64- And provoke any of them that you can with your voice; and urge against them your cavalry and your infantry; and share with them (their ill-gotten) wealth and children; and make promises to them (that there is no resurrection). But Satan promises them nothing but deceit.

65- Indeed, My servants (the true believers), you have no authority over them; for your Lord is All-Sufficient as a Guardian.”

66- Your Lord is He Who drives the ships gently for you through the sea in order that you may seek of His bounty; surely He is Ever-Merciful towards you.

67- And when you are afflicted with distress upon the sea, those whom you call upon will forsake you except Him (Allah), and when He delivers you to dry land you turn away (from Allah); for indeed mankind is ever ungrateful.

68- Do you feel so secure that He will not cause the shoreline to cave in with you, or that He may not send upon you a storm of stones? For then you shall not find a protector for you.

69- Or do you feel so secure that He will not send you back a second time to it (the sea) and send against you a thundering wind to drown you because of your ingratitude? For then you will not find there an avenging follower for you against Us!

70- And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, for We provided them with mounts on land and sea, and We provided them of (numerous) good things, for indeed have We favoured them greatly above many of those We created.

71- On the Day (of Judgement) when We shall call each people by (the name of) their guide (such as: O People of Muhammad or O People of the Qur’an), and whoever is given his record in his right hand (having more good deeds than bad), they shall read it (with pleasure), and they shall not be wronged of even (such a tiny thing as) a filament of a date stone.

72- And whoever was in this (world) blind (to the truth), he shall be blind in the Hereafter, and farther astray from the path (to the Garden).

73- And indeed they (the disbelievers) were about to tempt you (O Muhammad) away from what We have revealed to you (of Qur’an), to fabricate something else and ascribe it to Us, and then they would have taken you as a friend.

74- And had We not kept you steady, you would have inclined to them a little bit.

75- For then We would have made you taste a double portion (of punishment) in this life, and a double portion after death (in the Hereafter): and moreover you would not have found anyone to help you against Us.

76- And indeed they were about to provoke you to leave the land (Makkah), in order to expel you from it; but in that case they would not have stayed (in it) after you, except for a little while.

77- (For this is) The way with the messengers We sent before you (to destroy the people who expelled their Messenger): and you shall not find any change in Our Way.

78- Establish proper prayers from the setting of the sun till dusk (evening prayer), and the dawn recitation of the Qur’an (which is prolonged during the dawn prayer), for indeed the dawn recitation of the Qur’an is witnessed (by the worshippers and by the angels).

79- And keep vigil praying at night as a voluntary additional worship for you: for perhaps your Lord will raise you to a praiseworthy station.

80- And say, “O my Lord let my entry (into anything) be an entrance of truth, and let my exit (out of anything) be an exit of truth; and grant me from Your Presence an authority to help me.”

81- And say, “Truth has (now) arrived, and falsehood has expired: for indeed, falsehood is bound to expire.”

82- And We send down in the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: and to the wrong-doers it only augments their loss.

83- Yet when We bestow Our favours on Man, he turns away and withdraws aside, and when evil touches him he is hopeless (of Our mercy).

84- Say, “Everyone acts according to his own disposition: but your Lord knows full-well which of you is better guided in their way.”

85- And they ask you about the enlivening revelation (the Qur’an which enlivens the believers’ souls). Say, “The enlivening revelation is (sent) by command of my Lord; for what you have been given of knowledge is only little. (see 42:52, 16:2, 8:24 and 6:122)

86- And had We willed it, We could eliminate what We had inspired you with (the Qur’an), and then you shall not find for yourself a guardian against Us.

87- But (We allowed the Qur’an to stay) as a mercy from your Lord; for indeed His bounty upon you is great.”

88- Say (O Muhammad), “Even if Mankind and the Jinn gathered together to bring the like of this Qur’an, they could never bring its like, even if they helped one another.

89- And indeed, We did explain fully for man, in this Qur’an, all kinds of arguments; yet the majority of men refuse (to accept them) except with disbelief.

90- And they said, “We shall not believe in you, until you cause a spring to gush forth for us from the ground, 91- or (until) you have a garden of date trees and vines, and cause rivers to gush forth in their midst abundantly,

92- or (until) you cause the sky to fall, as you claimed, upon us in chunks, or (until) you bring Allah and the angels before our eyes,

93- or (until) you have a house of gold, or (until) you ascend to heaven; and we will not believe your ascent until you bring down to us a book that we could read.” Say, “Glory be to my Lord! Am I anything but a human Messenger?”

94- And nothing prevented mankind from believing when the guidance (the Qur’an) came to them, except that they said, “Would Allah have sent a human Messenger?”

95- Say, “Had there been angels walking about in safety and security on earth, We would have sent down from heaven an angel as a messenger to them.”

96- Say, “Allah is all-sufficient as a witness between me and you; for indeed Allah is All-Aware of His servants and All-Seeing.

97- For whomever Allah guides then he is rightly-guided; but he whom Allah leaves to stray, you will not find for them protectors against Him, and on the Day of Resurrection We shall gather them together (dragged) on their faces, blind, dumb, and deaf. Their home shall be Hell: whenever it abates (its burning), We shall give them more of its blazing fire.

98- That shall be their punishment for having disbelieved in our revelations, for they said, “What! Are we when we are reduced to bones and ashes, are we really going to be resurrected into a new creation?”

99- Could they not understand that Allah Who created the heavens  and the earth is capable of creating the likes of them? (So how could He not be capable of recreating them?) And He has appointed for them a term (for death and for resurrection) about which there is no doubt, yet the wrong-doers refuse (any argument) except with disbelief.

100- Say (O Muhammad), “If you possessed the treasures of the mercy of my Lord, behold, you would hold them back, for fear of spending them: for man is (ever) niggardly!”

101- And indeed We gave Moses nine clear signs (or miracles, which were:1- the white hand, 2- the staff, 3- the flood, 4- the locusts, 5- the ticks, 6- the frogs, 7- the blood, 8- years of draught and the diminution of produce, 9- obliteration of wealth), so ask the Children of Israel when he (Moses) came to them (before the Exodus for there were other miracles then), for Pharaoh said to him, “Verily I think that you, Moses, are bewitched.” (see 27:10, 7:117, 20:22, 7:133, 7:130 and10:88)

102- He (Moses) said, “You certainly know that no one sent these (signs) down except the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth as an eye-opening evidence, and I think that you, O Pharaoh, are certainly doomed to destruction.”

103- So, he (Pharaoh) wanted to provoke them to leave the land, but We drowned him and all who were with him, all together.

104- And We said after that to the Children of Israel, “Dwell in the land (of promise): but when the promise of the Hereafter comes to pass, We shall bring you all (you and the people of Pharaoh) in a mingled crowd.”

105- And by the truth (justice), We have sent it (the Qur’an) down, and with the truth it has come down: for We have not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a messenger of good cheer (to the believers) and a warner (to the disbelievers).

106- For it is a Recitation (Qur’an) which We have divided into parts, so that you might recite it to men at easy intervals: and We did certainly send it down one revelation after another.

107- Say, “Believe it (the Qur’an) or do not believe it. Verily those who were given knowledge before it (was sent down) fall down in prostration till their chins approach the ground when it is recited to them (in recognition of the truth).

108- And they say, ‘Glory be to our Lord, for surely His promise shall be fulfilled.’

109- And they do fall down till their chins approach the ground weeping, and it increases their humility.”

110- Say, “Call upon Allah (in prayer), or call upon the All-Merciful, for by whatever name you call upon Him (He is One), to Him belong the Fairest Names. And neither say your prayer loudly, nor say it in a low voice, but seek a middle course in between.”

111- And say, “Praise be to Allah, who has begotten no son, nor has He a partner in (His) dominion: nor needs He any protector to protect Him from humiliation: so magnify Him utterly (for He is the Greatest).”

Chapter of the Bees

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- The command of Allah (of punishment for the disbelievers) shall come, so do not seek to hasten it. Glory be to Him, and Exalted is He far above what they ascribe to Him of partners. (see 13:6, 22:47 and 29:53-54)

2- He sends down the angels by His command with the enlivening revelation (that enlivens the hearts of men with the truth) to whom He desires of His servants that they may warn: “There is no god but I, so fear Me (that you may guard yourselves against My wrath)!” (see 8:24, : 6:122 and 42:52)

3- He created the heavens and the earth for a true purpose (not in play). Exalted is He far above whom they ascribe to Him of partners. (see 21:16 and 44:38)

4- He (Allah) has created man from a drop (of semen); and behold he has become an eloquent adversary (saying for example: “Who can give life to bones when they are decomposed?”). (see 36:78)

5- And the livestock He has created for you: from them you derive warmth (warm clothes), and (numerous) benefits, and from it you eat.

6- And in them there is beauty for you as you bring them home (in the evening), and as you lead them to pasture (in the morning).

7- And they carry your burdens to a country that you could not reach except with great personal hardship; indeed Allah is Compassionate, Ever Merciful.

8- And horses, mules and donkeys (He also created for you) to ride and as an ornament (for show), and He creates what you do not know (or even imagine).

9- And showing the straight path is upon Allah, for some (paths) are crooked: and had Allah willed it, He would have guided you all (but He did not because He had granted you free will). (see 18:29)

10- It is He Who sends water (rain) down from the sky; from it you have your drink, and from it (grows) plants through which you let your cattle graze.

11- He causes with it (water) cultivated plants to grow, as well as olives, palm trees, vines, and all kinds of fruits. Surely in that is a sign for people who contemplate (them).

12- And He subjected for your sake the night, the day, the sun, the moon, and the stars: they are (all) subjected by His command. Surely in that are signs (proofs) for a people who understand.

13- And (He also subjected for your sake) whatever He created and multiplied for you in earth of different kinds (of plants and animals). Surely in that is a sign for a people who remember (Allah’s bounties).

14- And It is He Who subjected the sea, that you may eat from it tender flesh, and extract from it ornaments that you may wear, and you see the ships in it ploughing the waves, so that you may seek of His bounty, and that you may be grateful.

15- And He set up on earth mountains standing firm; lest it should wobble with you, and rivers and roads; that you may be guided.

16- And landmarks, and by the stars they guide themselves.

17- Is He Who creates (everything) like him who does not create (anything)? Will you not then remember?

18- And if you enumerate the blessings of Allah, you will never be able to count them. Indeed, Allah is All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful.

19- And Allah knows whatever you conceal and whatever you reveal.

20- As for those (idols) whom they (the disbelievers) call upon other than Allah: they can create nothing, indeed they are themselves created.

21- They (those that they worship) are dead, not living, and they are not aware of when they shall be resurrected.

22- (Know that) Your God is One God: as to those who do not believe in the Hereafter, their hearts reject it being arrogant.

23- There is no doubt that Allah knows whatever they conceal and whatever they reveal. Indeed, He does not like those who are arrogant.

24- And when it is said to the, “What did your Lord send down?” They would say, “(Only) The legends of the ancients.”

25- Let them bear, on the Day of Resurrection, their own burdensome sins in full, and also some of the sins of those whom they misled without knowledge. How evil indeed is that which they shall bear!

26- Verily, those who were before them schemed (against Allah’s religion), but Allah demolished their building (their schemes) from the foundations, and the ceiling toppled upon them from above, and the punishment came to them from where they were not aware.

27- And then, on the Day of Resurrection, He (Allah) shall shame them, and He shall say, “Where are My (so-called) partners for whom you used to defy (Me)?” Those who were given knowledge shall say, “Surely shame and evil are this day upon the disbelievers.”

28- Those whom the angels receive having wronged themselves, they shall submit (saying), “We were not doing any evil.” (The angels shall say), “Nay, Allah has full-knowledge of what you used to do.

29- So enter the gates of Hell to abide in it forever. Evil indeed is the abode of the haughty!”

30- For it was said to the God-fearing, “What did your Lord send down (to you)?” They said, “That which is good (as the Qur’an).” For those who do good in this world is a good reward, but surely the abode of the Hereafter is best. Indeed how excellent shall be the abode of the God-fearing!

31- They shall enter the Gardens of Eternal Abode, beneath which rivers flow, and they shall have in it whatever they desire; for thus does Allah reward the God-fearing!

32- Those whom the angels receive having been good, they (the angels) shall say, “Peace be upon you! Enter the Garden because of what you used to do (of good deeds).” (see 39:71-73)

33- Are they (the disbelievers) waiting for anything other than that the angels should come to them (to take their lives), or that the decree of your Lord (with punishment) should come to pass? For thus did those who were before them. Indeed, Allah did not wrong them, but they used to wrong themselves (by their disbelief and evil ways). (see 25:22)

34- So, (the outcome of) the evil that they did overtook them, and that (punishment), which they used to mock at, beset them.

35- And those who associated partners with Allah shall say, “Had Allah willed it, we would not have worshipped anything other than Him, neither we nor our fathers, nor would we have prohibited anything.” And thus did those who were before them (they disobeyed their Messengers and claimed that they had no free will). But is anything required from the Messengers other than the clear delivery of the message?

36- For We certainly did send for each people a Messenger, (commanding them:) to worship Allah (alone), and to shun the idolized tyrants; and among them are some that Allah rightly-guided, and some rightly deserved misguidance (because of their obstinacy and arrogance). So, travel through the land, and see how the end of those who rejected the truth was.

37- Even if you are full of care for their guidance, Allah shall not guide those whom He sends astray (because they repelled against guidance), and they shall have no helpers. (2:258, 2:264, 5:108, 16:104, etc.)

38- And they (the disbelievers) swear by Allah their most solemn oaths, that Allah will not resurrect those who die: nay, but it is a promise (binding) on Him in truth: but most people do not know (that).

39- So that He (Allah) may show them (the truth of) what they differed about, and that those who disbelieved (in the oneness of Allah and in the resurrection) may know that they were liars.

40- Verily! (resurrection is not difficult for Us, for) Our Word to a thing that We intend (to be) is only to say to it, “Be!” and it is!

41- As for those who emigrated in the cause of Allah after they had been wronged (by the disbelievers’ oppression), We shall make a good abode for them in this world, but surely the reward of the Hereafter is much greater if they but knew.

41- Those (are they) who patiently persevere and who put their trust in Allah.

43- And We have never sent before you (O Muhammad) except men (not angels) whom We inspired (with our Messages). So ask the people of the Reminding Messages (the Torah and the Gospel) if you (O disbelievers) do not know

44- of the clear proofs and Sacred Books. And We sent down to you the Reminding Message (the Qur’an) to make clear to mankind that (religion) which was sent down to them, and that they may contemplate (the Qur’an).

45- Do those who scheme evil feel secure that Allah shall not cause the ground to cave in with them? or that the punishment shall not overtake them from where they are not aware?

46- Or that He may seize them during their going about through the land (for trade and profit) for indeed, they can not thwart Allah (if He wants to punish them)?

47- Or that He may seize them (with punishment) while they are in a state of fear (because of gradual loss of possession and child)? Indeed Allah is Compassionate and Ever-Merciful (for giving them forewarning).

48- Or do they not look at what Allah has created of things; how their shadows turn about, from the right and the left, prostrating themselves to Allah, being humbly submissive?

49- And to Allah whatever is in the heavens and the earth of living creatures prostrate themselves, as well as the angels, for they are not haughty.

50- They (the angels) fear their Lord above them, and they do whatever they are commanded (to do).

51- And Allah said, “Do not take (for worship) two gods, for He (Allah) is only One God, so fear Me (alone)!

52- And to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth, and to Him submission is always due. Will you then fear other than Allah?

53- And whatever blessings you have they are from Allah, and when you are afflicted with distress, to him (alone) you will groan for help.

54- And then when He relieves you of distress, behold! A party of you will associate partners with their Lord.

55- Let them be ungrateful for whatever We bestowed upon them (of blessings), so enjoy yourselves for you shall soon know (the consequences of your deeds).

56- And they assign a share of what We have provided them with to those whom they do not know (of false gods). By Allah! You shall be called upon to answer for what you used to fabricate (of lies).

57- And they assign daughters (for thus did they deem the angels) to Allah! Glory be to Him! And they assign to themselves what they desire (of sons).

58- And when the glad tidings is brought to one of them of (the birth of) a female (child), his face darkens, and he is choked with restrained grief!

59- He hides himself from people; because of the evil tidings that he has received. Shall he retain it (the new-born) with shame, or bury it in the dust? Evil indeed is what they judge!

60- To those who do not believe in the Hereafter, applies the attributes of evil: and to Allah applies the highest attributes: for He is the Exalted in Power, the All-Wise.

61- And were Allah to call mankind to account for their wrong-doing (immediately), He would not leave upon it (earth) any living creature, but He reprieves them to a definite time (time of their death), and when their appointed term arrives, they cannot put it back for an hour nor hasten it forward.

62- For they attribute to Allah what they hate for themselves (such as girls and partnerships), and their tongues falsely allege that the best reward will be theirs (in the Hereafter). No doubt that the Fire shall be for them, and that they shall be abandoned (there).

63- By Allah! We have indeed sent (Messengers) to nations before you, but Satan made their (evil) deeds attractive to them, and today he is their patron, and they shall have a painful punishment.

64- And We have not sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you except to make clear to them that which they differed about, and as a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe.

65- And Allah sends down water (rain) from the sky, by which He revives the earth after its death (barrenness). In that is indeed a sign for those who hearken (to the truth).

66- And in live-stock there is indeed a lesson for you: We give you to drink from what is within their bellies, between stomach-contents and blood, pure milk that is agreeable to those who drink it.

67- And from the fruits of the date-palm and the vine, you get out (evil) intoxicating drinks and good provisions (wholesome food). In that is indeed a sign for people who understand.

68- And your Lord has inspired the bees to: “Take your homes in mountains, trees and in what they (people) trellis.

69- And then eat of all fruits, and follow the pathways that your Lord has made easy (instinctive for you).” From their bellies comes a drink of various colours, in which there is healing for mankind. In that is indeed a sign for people who contemplate (Allah’s creation).

70- And It is Allah Who created you, and then He takes your souls (on reaching the end of one’s allotted life-span); and of you are some who are left to senile old age, so that they know nothing after (having gained much) knowledge: indeed Allah is Omniscient, All-Potent.

71- And Allah has favoured some of you above others in wealth; but those who are favoured will not hand over their wealth to those (slaves) whom their right hands possess so that they may be equal with them in it (then how do you ascribe partners to Allah when you do not accept them for yourselves?). Will you deny Allah’s favours? (see 30:28)

72- And Allah has made for you, from your own kind, wives, and He has made for you, from your wives, sons and grandchildren, and He has provided you with (plenty of) good things. Will you then believe in falsehoods (false gods), and deny Allah’s blessings (by associating partners to Him)?

73- Yet they worship, other than Allah, those who have nothing to provide them with from the heavens and the earth, nor have they any ability.

74- So do not set examples for Allah (like saying that Allah is too great to be addressed directly, and they need their idols as intercessors); for indeed, He knows (everything), and you do not know. (see 39:3, 40:60 and 50:16)

75- Allah sets forth an example (comparing their false gods with Allah): an owned slave who is not capable of doing anything; and a man on whom We have bestowed good provisions from Our own, and he spends from it in private and in public: are the two equal? Praise be to Allah! But most of them do not know.

76- And Allah sets forth an example of two men: one of them dumb, with no power over anything; being wholly dependant upon his master; wherever he sends him, he brings no good. Is he equal to one who enjoins justice, and is on a straight path?

77- And to Allah belongs the unseen (secrets) of the heavens and the earth, and the command (of Allah) for the Hour (the Day of Resurrection) is but as the twinkling of an eye, or even quicker (for He has only to say, “Be!” and it is). Truly, Allah has full-power over everything. (see 6:73 and 16:40)

78- And it is Allah who brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers knowing nothing, and He gave you hearing and sight and (reasoning) minds: that you may show gratitude.

79- Do they not see the birds, adapted (by Allah to fly) in the air of the sky? Nothing keeps them (aloft) except Allah; surely in that are signs for a people who believe.

80- And Allah has made for you, out of your homes, places of rest, and He has made for you, out of the hides of livestock, tents (for dwelling) which you find easily portable on the day of your travel and on the day of your abiding (in one place); and from their wool (of sheep), and fuzz (of camels), and hairs (of goats) furnishings and passing comforts (such as carpets, coverings, tents, and clothes) for a time.

81- And Allah has made for you, out of the things He created, sunshades; and He has made for you shelters in the mountains, and He has made for you garments to protect you from heat, and garments (coats of mail) to protect you from your (mutual) violence. Thus does He complete His favours upon you, that you may submit yourselves to Allah (in Islam).

82- But if they turn away (from Islam), (do not grieve O Muhammad) for your duty is only the clear delivery of the message.

83- They know well the favour of Allah, yet they deny it (by associating partners with Allah), for indeed, most of them are ingrates.

84- And on the Day (of Judgement) when We shall raise up from every nation a witness (their Messenger), for then they shall not be given leave (to excuse themselves), nor shall they be allowed to beg for forgiveness (for by then it shall be too late).

85- And when the wrongdoers see the punishment, it shall not be lightened for them, nor shall they be reprieved.

86- And when those who associated partners with Allah see their partners (of Allah whom they invented), they shall say, “Our Lord, these are our partners that we used call upon instead of You!” And then they (the partners) shall retort, “Indeed you are liars!”

87- And on that day they (the disbelievers) shall submit to Allah, and those that they invented (as partners to Allah) shall forsake them.

88- Those who disbelieved, and turned people away from Allah’s path, We shall give them more punishment above their punishment because of the mischief they used to make (in the land).

89- And on the Day (of Judgement) when We shall raise up in every nation a witness against them from among themselves, and We shall bring you (O Muhammad) as a witness against these (your own people). For indeed We have sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you as: a clarification of everything, a guidance, a mercy and a message of good cheer to the Muslims (who surrender themselves wholly to Allah).

90- Verily Allah enjoins justice, doing one’s best deeds, and being generous towards one’s kin, and He forbids obscenities, evil deeds, and transgression. He advises you that you may remember (His commandments).

91- And fulfil the covenant of Allah when you make a covenant (with anyone), and do not break (your) oaths after its confirmation; for indeed you have made Allah your guarantor. Indeed Allah knows all that you do.

92- And do not be like her who untwisted her yarn, after being strongly spun, into frayed filaments; using your oaths as a means of deception among yourselves because one nation is more numerous than a nation (thus breaking your oaths to the weaker party). Indeed Allah is only testing you by it (your constancy in your oaths), and He shall make clear to you, on the Day of Resurrection, that about which you differed.

93- And had Allah willed it, He would have made you one nation, but (by giving you guidance and the freedom of choice) He leaves to stray whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases; for you shall be called upon to answer for what you used to do (of good or evil).

94- And do not use your oaths as a means of deception among yourselves, with the result that someone’s foot may slip after it was firmly planted, and that you may suffer evil because you turned people away from the path of Allah, and (then) you shall have a great punishment.

95- And do not trade Allah’s covenant for a paltry price (of the passing comforts of worldly life) for that which is with Allah (of reward) is better for you if you but knew (it).

96- What is with you must come to an end: but what is with Allah is enduring. And We shall certainly reward those who patiently persevere with their recompense according to the best of what they used to do.

97- Whoever does good deeds, whether male or female, and is a believer, We shall certainly give him a good Life, and We shall pay them their reward according to the best of what they used to do.

98- So, when you recite the Qur’an seek refuge in Allah from the accursed Satan (to guard yourself against his evil whisperings).

99- For indeed, he (Satan) has no authority over those who believe, and put their trust in Allah.

100- His authority is only over those who turn to him in friendship, and on those who associate him as a partner (with Allah).

101- And when we substitute a sign (in this Qur’an) for another (of those mentioned in the earlier scriptures), and Allah knows best what He sends down, they say, “You are a fabricator of lies!” Nay, but most of them do not know (that they all come from the same authoritative source which is the Mother Book). (see 2:106, 80:11-16 and 13:39)

102- Say (O Muhammad), “The Holy Spirit (Gabriel) has brought it (the Qur’an) down from your Lord with the truth, to keep those who believe steady (in their faith), and as a guidance, and a message of good cheer for those who submit themselves wholly to Allah (Muslims).

103- We certainly know that they say, “It is only a man who teaches him.” The tongue of him they falsely allude to is foreign, while this (Qur’an) is (in) a lucid Arabic tongue.

104- Indeed those who do not believe in the revelations of Allah, Allah shall not guide them, and they shall have a painful punishment.

105- Those who fabricate lies are only those who do not believe in Allah’s revelations, and those are indeed the liars.

106- Whoever disbelieves in Allah after having believed, except those who are coerced (to reject faith with their lips) while their hearts are serenely-contented with faith, but those who lay open their breasts to disbelief, they shall have the wrath of Allah upon them, and they shall have a great punishment.

107- That is because they prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter: verily Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.

108- Those are the ones upon whose hearts, hearing and eyesight Allah has put a seal; for they are the heedless (who do not accept any guidance).

109- No doubt they shall be the losers in the Hereafter.

110- And then your Lord, towards those who emigrated after being persecuted, and then strived (in the cause of Allah), and patiently persevered, shall surely afterwards be All-Forgiving, and Ever Merciful.

111- On a day (Day of Judgement) when every one shall come to plead for himself, and every one shall be paid in full for what he had done (of good or evil), and they shall not be wronged.

112- And Allah sets forth an example: a township that was safe and secure, with its provisions coming to it bountifully from everywhere, but they were ungrateful for the blessings of Allah, so Allah made it (the township) taste hunger and fear enveloping them like garments for what they used to do (of evil).

113- And indeed a Messenger, from among themselves, came to them, but they rejected him, so the punishment seized them being wrongdoers.

114- So eat of what is lawful and good of what Allah has provided you with, and be grateful for Allah’s blessings if you worship Him (alone).

115- For He has only forbidden you: dead meat (unlawfully slaughtered), (spilt) blood, the flesh of swine, and that (food) over which the name of other than Allah has been invoked. But whoever is forced by necessity, without being wilfully disobedient or transgressing, then (he shall find that) Allah is All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful. (see 5:3-4 and 6:145)

116- And do not say what your tongues (in haste) falsely allege, “This is lawful and this is forbidden.” to fabricate lies against Allah; for indeed those who fabricate lies against Allah shall never prosper.

117- A little passing comfort (shall be theirs in this life), and they shall have a painful punishment (in the Hereafter).

118- And upon those who followed Judaism We forbade what We related to you before, for indeed We did not wrong them but they used to wrong themselves (by their wilful disobedience). (see 6:146)

119- And then Your Lord, to those who did evil in ignorance and then they repented after that and did good (deeds), indeed after that your Lord shall be All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful.

120- Verily, Abraham was a righteous leader, devoutly obedient to Allah, truly faithful, and he was not of the polytheists.

121- He was grateful for His (Allah’s) favours for He (Allah) had chosen him and He had guided him to a straight path (true religion).

122- And We granted him a good reward in this world, and in the Hereafter, he shall be among the righteous.

123- And then We inspired you to follow the religion of Abraham, the truly faithful to Allah, for he was not of the polytheists.

124- The Sabbath was only ordained (as a punishment) for those who differed concerning it (claiming that Allah rested on that day). Indeed, your Lord shall judge among them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they differed about. (see 50:38-39)

125- Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and sound advice, and reason with them in the most gracious way. Indeed, your Lord knows best who strays from His way, and He knows best those who are guided (to the straight path).

126- And if you punish (in retaliation), then punish to the same extent that you were punished with, but if you are patient, then it shall be best for those who are patient.

127- And be patient for your patience is only (possible) with the help of Allah. And do not grieve over them, and do not be in distress about what they are scheming.

128- Indeed Allah is with those who fear Allah, and those who do their best (of good deeds).

Chapter of the Rocky Tract

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- A (Alif), L (lam), R (Ra’). These are the revelations of the Book, and a clear reading (Qur’an).

2- Often (on the Day of Judgement) will the disbelievers wish that they were Muslims (submitting to Allah).

3- Let them eat, enjoy themselves, and be deluded by hope (that there is no God or judgement), for they shall surely know.

4- And indeed We have never destroyed a town without its having a known (and predetermined) judgement.

5- No nation can hasten its appointed term (of punishment), nor can it postpone it.

6- And they (the disbelievers) said, “O you, to whom the Reminding Message (the Qur’an) has being sent down, truly you are insane!

7- Why do you not bring the angels before us if you are of the truthful?”

8- We do not send the angels down except with the truth (Their punishment after sending messengers), for then they shall not be granted respite. (see 15:64 and 17:15)

9- We have indeed sent down the Reminding Message (the Qur’an), and We shall indeed be its Keepers (from any corruption, and for all time).

10- And indeed We did send (Messengers) before you among the parties of the ancients,

11- And never did a Messenger come to them but they mocked him.

12- Thus do We cause it (disbelief) to enter into the hearts of the malefactors,

13- That they would never believe in it (the Reminding Message) although Allah’s way with the earlier generations has already preceded them.

14- And had We opened for them a gate of heaven through which they continued to ascend,

15- Then they would only say, “Our sight has been obstructed: nay, we are a bewitched people!”

16- And We made constellations in the heaven, and We made it attractive to the beholders.

17- And We preserved it (the heaven) from every accursed devil,

18- Except him who eavesdrops, and then a plainly visible flaming meteor shall pursue him.

19- And the earth, We stretched it out, and We set upon it mountains standing firm, and We caused to grow in it of all kinds of things in due balance.

20- And We provided you in it with means of life, as well as for those whom you do not provide for (all other creatures).

21- And there is not a thing but We have its stores with Us, and We do not send it down except in specified amounts.

22- And We send the winds that fecundate (the clouds and the plants), then We cause the rain to descend from the sky, and We give it to you to drink, for verily you are not its treasurers.

23- And it is We Who give life and ordain death, and We are the Inheritors (of everything).

24- And We already know the generations preceding you, and We already know the coming generations.

25- And It is your Lord Who shall gather them (on the Day of Judgement), for He is indeed All-Wise, Omniscient.

26- And We have already created man from sounding clay, from dark mud moulded into shape.

27- And the Jinn, We had created before, from the scorching fire.

28- And remember when your Lord said to the Angels, “I shall create a human being from sounding clay, from dark mud moulded into shape.

29- So when I mould him perfectly, and breathe into it of My Spirit, fall down in prostration to him (acknowledging Allah’s handiwork and knowledge which He taught Adam).” (see 38:75 and 2:30-34)

30- And then the Angels prostrated themselves, all of them, together!

31- Except Iblees (Satan), he refused to be among those prostrating. (see 18:50)

32- He (Allah) said, “O Iblees, why are you not among those prostrating?”

33- He (Iblees) said, “I am not one to prostrate myself to a human being whom You created from sounding clay, from dark mud moulded into shape.” (see 7:12 and 38:76)

34- He (Allah) said, “Then get out of it (the Sublime Company) for you are an outcast! (see 38:77)

35- And the curse shall be upon you till the Day of Judgement!”

36- He (Iblees) said, “O my Lord, grant me respite till the day when they are resurrected.”

37- He (Allah) said, “You are granted respite

38- till the day of the appointed time.”

39- He (Iblees) said, “O my Lord, since You tempted me to go astray (by commanding me to prostrate myself to Adam who is inferior to me),I shall make (evil) attractive to them on earth, and I shall lead them all astray,

40- excepting those of your servants that are purified.”

41- He (Allah) said, “This is My Path, leading straight to Me,

42- For indeed you have no authority over My servants except those who follow you of those who are seduced (away from the truth).

43- For indeed Hell shall be the promised place for them all.

44- It (Hell) has seven gates, and for each gate a predetermined portion of them is assigned.”

45- Indeed, the God-fearing shall be amid Gardens and fountains.

46- (And it shall be said to them,) “Enter it (the Garden) in peace and security.”

47- For We shall pluck out from their hearts any (lingering) rancour (against one another), (they shall be) brothers facing each other on couches (of honour).

48- There, no fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be driven away from it.

49- Tell My servants that I am the All-Forgiving, the Ever-Merciful.

50- And that My punishment is the painful punishment.

51- And tell them about the guests of Abraham.

52- Behold! They entered before him, and said, “Peace!” He said, “We (Abraham and his wife) are afraid of you!” (see 11:70)

53- They said, “Do not be afraid! We give you glad tidings of a knowledgeable son (Isaac)!”

54- He said, “Would give me glad tidings after being afflicted by old age? What (kind of) glad tidings is this?”

55- They said, “We gave you glad tidings of the truth, so do not be of those who despair (of Allah’s mercy).”

56- He said, “And who despairs of his Lord’s mercy except those who go astray?”

57- He (Abraham) said, “What then is your business, O Messengers?”

58- They said, “We have been sent to a sinful people (to punish them),

59- with the exception of the family of Lot for we shall save them all,

60- except his wife!” For We ordained that she be of those who will lag behind (with the sinners).

61- So when the Messengers came to Lot’s family,

62- He said, “O you people are unknown (to me)!”

63- They said, “Nay (you shall know us), for we have come to you about that which they were in doubt about (the punishment of Allah),

64- and we have came to you with the truth (the punishment of the disbelievers), for we are indeed truthful!

65- So travel during the remaining portion of the night with your family, and do you follow in their rear (that no one lags behind), and let no one look back (lest he should be delayed), and go on where you are commanded.”

66- And We made known this decree to him: that the last remnants of those (sinners) would be cut off by the morning.

67- And the town’s people came (to Lot’s house) rejoicing (anticipating sodomy).

68- He (Lot) said, “These are my guests: so do not disgrace me!

69- And fear Allah, and do not shame me!”

70- They said, “Did we not forbid you from interfering with the people?”

71- He (Lot) said, “These are my daughters (to marry) if you must do something!”

72- By your life (O Muhammad), in their befuddlement, they wandered blindly to and fro.

73- But the blast (of punishment) caught up with them at sunrise;

74- And We turned it (the city) upside down, and We rained down on them stones of baked clay.

75- Verily, in this are signs for the discerning.

76- And it (the city of Lot) is on a well-travelled road.

77- In that there is indeed a sign for the believers.

78- And indeed, the people of the grove were certainly wrong-doers;

79- And We exacted retribution from them, and they (the cities of Lot and of the people of the grove) are on an open road (for everyone to see).

80- The people of Al-Hijr (Thamood of the Rocky Tract) rejected the messengers:

81- We brought them Our signs but they turned away from them.

82- For they used to carve out of the mountains homes (caves in which they lived), in security. (see 89:9)

83- But the Blast (of doom) seized them at day-break,

84- And what they earned (and accomplished) did not avail them (anything).

85- Verily, We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them except with justice. For indeed, the Hour (of Judgement) is coming, so turn away from them (the disbelievers) in gracious disregard (of their offence).

86- For verily it is your Lord Who is the All-Creator, the Omniscient.

87- And We have indeed given you the seven oft-repeated verses (the Opening chapter) and the Great Qur’an (and that makes you very rich and strong).

88- (So) Do not cast your eyes longingly at what We made some parties among them enjoy; nor grieve for them (because of their disbelief), and take the believers under your wing (in compassion).

89- And say, “I am indeed a frank warner.”

90- As those (warners) We sent down upon the partitioners (who divided the Scriptures into believable and unbelievable parts),

91- Those who made the Qur’an into separate parts (some they accept, and some they do not).

92- By your Lord, We shall call them all to account

93- for what they used to do.

94- Therefore expound openly what you are commanded, and turn away from the polytheists.

95- We have saved you from the scoffers,

96- who set up another god with Allah, for they shall know (the punishment for that).

97- And We do indeed know that your heart is vexed at what they say.

98- So glorify and praise your Lord, and be among those who prostrate themselves (to Allah in submission).

99- And worship your Lord until the absolute certainty (death) comes to you. (see 74:47)

Chapter of Abraham

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- A (Alif), L (Lam), R (Ra’). A book (the Qur’an) that We have sent down upon you to lead mankind, by leave of their Lord, out of darkness into the light to the path of the Exalted in Power, the Praiseworthy.

2- Allah Who has whatever is in the heavens and in the earth. And woe to the disbelievers from a severe punishment.

3- Those who: prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter, and turn away from the (straight) path of Allah, seeking to make it crooked; those are far into error.

4- And We have never sent a Messenger except in the language of his people that he may explain (the message) clearly to them, and then Allah leaves astray whomever He pleases, and guides whomever He pleases; for He is the Exalted in Power, the All-Wise. (see 18:29 and 19:75)

5- And indeed We did send Moses with Our revelations (saying), “Bring your people out of the darkness into the light, and remind them of the Days of Allah (of favour and retribution). Verily, in that are lessons for every one who patiently perseveres and is grateful.

6- And (remember) when Moses said to his people, “Remember Allah’s favour upon you when He delivered you from the people of Pharaoh: they were inflicting dreadful torture upon you, for they slaughtered your sons, and let your women folk live (as slaves), and in that was a great trial from your Lord.

7- And (remember) when Allah declared: “If you are grateful, I shall give you more (of My bounty), but if you prove ungrateful, then My punishment shall indeed be harsh.”

8- And Moses said, “If you prove ungrateful, you and all who are in earth, then (know that) Allah is Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy.”

9- Have not the stories of those who were before you reached you? The people of Noah, Aad, and Thamood, and those who came after them, whom none knows save Allah? To them came Messengers with clear signs; but they put their hands in their mouths (biting them in rage), and said, “We do reject what you have been sent with, and indeed, we feel a disturbing doubt about what you are inviting us to.”

10- Their Messengers said, “Is there any doubt in Allah, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth? He is inviting you to forgive you your sins, and to reprieve you to a predetermined time (the Day of Judgement).” They said, “You are only human beings like us who want to turn us away from what our fathers used to worship. So bring us a clear proof!”

11- Their Messengers said to them, “Indeed we are only human beings like you, but Allah bestows (His) favours upon whom He desires of His servants. And it is not for us to bring you a proof except by Allah’s leave. So let the believers put their trust in Allah.

12- And why should we not put our trust in Allah when He has already guided us to our pathways (of true religion), and we shall patiently persevere in spite of the harm that you cause us; for upon Allah let all who trust (Him) put their trust.”

13- And those who disbelieved said to their Messengers, “We shall surely drive you out of our land, or you shall return to our religion!” But their Lord inspired them (with this message), “Verily, we shall destroy the wrong-doers!

14- And We shall lodge you in the land after them; but that (reward) is for him who fears his standing before his Lord (for Judgement) and who fears (Allah’s) warning.”

15- And they (the believers) asked for Allah’s judgement, and every obstinate overbearing transgressor was frustrated.

16- For Hell is before him (waiting), and he shall be given purulent water to drink,

17- (which) he shall gulp down but it will hardly be palatable to him, and death shall reach for him from everywhere, but he shall never be dead (and done with), and before him there shall (still) be a harsh punishment. (see 4:56 and 6:93)

18- The example of those who disbelieve in their Lord: their (good) deeds are like ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a tempestuous day: they shall not be able to get anything of that which they had earned, and indeed that is the extreme error!

19- Do you not see that Allah has in truth created the heavens and the earth? If He wills it, He can eliminate you and bring a new creation (in your place),

20- and that is not so hard on Allah.

21- And they all shall stand forth in front of Allah, and then the helpless shall say to those who had assumed supremacy, “Verily, we were but your followers, will you avail us anything against Allah’s punishment?” They shall say, “Had Allah guided us, we would have guided you. It is the same whether we panic or be resigned (to Allah’s punishment); we shall have no escape!”

22- And when the matter has been settled (and Allah’s judgement has been passed), Satan shall say, “Allah promised you the true promise, and I promised you then failed to keep my promise to you; but I had no authority over you; I merely called upon you and you hearkened to me. So blame yourselves and do not blame me; for I can not be your rescuer, nor can you be my rescuers; indeed I deny your associating me as partner to Allah before (by obeying my commands instead of Allah’s). Indeed, the wrong-doers shall have a painful punishment!

23- And those who believed and did good deeds shall be admitted to Gardens beneath which rivers flow, to abide in them for ever by their Lord’s leave; and their greeting in them shall be: “Peace!”

24- Do you not see how Allah sets forth an example? A good word is like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are (reaching) to the sky.

25- It (the tree) gives its produce every season by leave of its Lord (as does the good words). Allah sets example to people that they may remember.

26- And the example of an evil word is like an evil tree that has been uprooted from the earth having no permanence.

27- Allah keeps those who believe steady by (His true) unchangeable words in this world as well as in the Hereafter, and He leads astray the wrong-doers; for indeed Allah does whatever He wills.

28- Have you not seen those who substituted Allah’s bounty (His Message) with disbelief, and settled their people into the house of perdition?

29- Hell where they shall be burned; and what an evil place of permanent stay!

30- And they set up equals to Allah to mislead (men) from His (straight) path. Say, “Enjoy yourselves (in this life), for your final destiny is to the Fire (of Hell).”

31- Say to My servants who believe: to establish proper prayers, and to spend of what We have provided them with in secret and in public before a day comes on which there shall be no bargaining or friendship (to benefit them).

32- Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth, and from the sky He sends down water by which He brings forth fruits for your sustenance, and He subjects the ships for you to sail in the sea by His command, and He subjects the rivers for your service.

33- And He subjected for your sake the sun and the moon, both diligently pursuing their courses; and He subjected to you the night and the day.

34- And He gives you of all that you ask for (and even of all that you do not ask for). And indeed, if you enumerate the blessings of Allah, you can never count them. Verily, man is extremely unjust and ungrateful.

35- And Remember when Abraham said, “O my Lord make this town (Makkah) safe, and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols.

36- My Lord, they (the idols) have led a lot of mankind astray! So, whoever follows me he surely belongs to me, but whoever disobeys me, then surely You are All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful.

37- Our Lord, I have settled some of my offspring in an uncultivated valley, by Your Sacred House; in order, O our Lord, that they may establish proper prayer: so make the hearts of some among men incline in affection towards them, and provide them with fruits: so that they may show gratitude.

38- Our Lord, You know whatever we conceal and whatever we reveal; for nothing can be hidden from Allah in earth or in the heavens.

39- Praise be to Allah Who has given me, in my old age, Ishmael and Isaac. Indeed, Allah is the Hearer of Prayers.

40- Our Lord, make me one who establishes proper prayers, as well as from my offspring. Our Lord, do accept my prayer!

41- Our Lord, forgive me, and my parents, and the believers on the day (of Judgement) when the reckoning shall come to pass!” (see 9:114)

42- And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrong-doers do; He only respites them till a day when the eyes shall stare unblinkingly (in terror).

43- They shall be rushing madly with necks outstretched, heads uplifted, unable to see anything, and their hearts an empty void.

44- And warn mankind of a day when punishment shall come to them, when those who did wrong shall say, “Our Lord, respite us for a little while, and we shall hearken to Your call, and follow the Messengers.” Did you not swear previously that there shall never be a departure for you (from earth to the Hereafter)? (see 6:29, 23:37 and 45:24)

45- And you dwelt into the dwellings of those who had wronged themselves, and it became clear to you how We dealt with them, for We set up examples for you (that you may understand).

46- For indeed they did scheme their schemes, but Allah was well aware of their schemes, even though their schemes were such as to make the mountains cease to exist.

47- So do not think that Allah shall break His promise to His Messengers (to punish the disbelievers); for indeed, Allah is Exalted in Power, Exactor of Retribution.

48- Upon the day (of Resurrection) when the earth shall be changed into a different earth, as shall the heavens, and they shall go forth before Allah, the One and Only, the Ever-Conquering.

49- And on that day, you shall see the criminals bound together in fetters.

50- Their garments of pitch, and their faces covered with fire.

51- That Allah may reward everyone according to what he earned (of good or evil in this world); for indeed, Allah is Swift in Reckoning.

52- This (Qur’an) is a proclamation for mankind, that they may be warned by it, and that they may know that there is only one God, so that people of understanding may remember.

Chapter of Thunder

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- A (Alif), L (Lam), M (Meem), R (Ra’). These are the revelations of the Book (the Qur’an); for that which has been sent down to you is the truth, but most people will not believe.

2- Allah is He Who raised the heavens without pillars that you (can) see, and then He firmly established Himself upon the throne; and He subjected (for you) the sun and the moon: each running its course for an appointed term. He directs (all) affairs, and He explains the revelations in detail that you may believe with certainty in your meeting with your Lord (on the Day of Judgement).

3- And it is He who stretched out the earth, and set in it mountains standing firm, and (flowing) rivers; and of all fruits He set out two kinds. He makes the night to cover up the day. Indeed, in all that there are proofs for a people who contemplate (them).

4- And in the land there are: adjoining areas and gardens of grapes, and plantations, and palm trees: twinned and non-twinned, (they are all) watered with one water, and (yet) We favour some over others in eating: indeed in that are proofs for people who understand.

5- And if you marvel (O Muhammad at their lack of faith), then the (really) wondrous thing is their saying, “Are we indeed, when we have become dust, to go through a new creation?” Those are they who disbelieve in their Lord, and those shall have fetters in their necks, and those are the dwellers of the Fire in which they shall abide forever.

6- And they ask you to hasten on the evil (the punishment) rather than the good (the guidance of Allah), although there have been exemplary punishments before them! But indeed, your Lord is full of forgiveness for mankind in spite of their wrongdoing, and indeed, He is Strict in Punishment!

7- And those who disbelieve say, “Why has not a sign been sent down to him from his Lord?” Indeed, you are only a warner, and for every people there is a guide.

8- Allah knows what every female bears, and what decreases or increases in the wombs; and everything with Him is in due proportion.

9- It is He Who knows the Unseen (secrets of the universe) and the Seen, He is the Grand, the Transcendent.

10- It is the same (to Him) whether some of you conceal (your) words or speak them out loudly, and whether one is lying hidden by night or is walking forth openly by day.

11- For each (person) there are angels who succeed one another, before and behind him; they guard him (and record his deeds) by command of Allah: for indeed, Allah does not change the condition of a people (of prosperity or distress) until they change what is within themselves (to obedience or disobedience). And whenever Allah intends evil for a people, there is no averting it, for they have no protector other than Him.

12- It is He Who shows you the lightening causing fear (of thunderbolts) and longing (for succouring rain), and it is He Who creates the rain-laden clouds.

13- And the thunder glorifies His praises, as do the angels out of awe of Him, and He sends the thunderbolts to strike with them whom He pleases. Yet, they (the disbelievers dare to) dispute about Allah, while He is Almighty in Power.

14- To Him alone goes the true invocation: for those they invoke other than Him do not respond to them with anything, they are only like one stretching forth his hands to water (begging it) to reach his mouth but it reaches it not: for indeed, the invocation of the disbelievers only goes astray.

15- And to Allah, all that is in the Heavens and the earth prostrate themselves willingly or unwillingly, as do their shadows in the early mornings and in the late afternoons.

16- Say, “Who is the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth?” Say, “Allah!” Say, “Would you then take others than Him as protectors who have no power of benefit or harm for themselves?” Say, “Are the blind and the one who can see equal? Or can the shrouds of darkness and the light be equal? Or would they ascribe partners to Allah that have created a creation like His, so that all creation appears similar to them?” Say, “Allah is the Creator of everything, and He is the One (and only God), the Ever-Conquering.

17- He sends down water (guidance) from the sky, and the valleys (the hearts of believers) flow, each according to its capacity: and then the torrent bears away mounting scum (falsehoods). And from that which they kindle fire upon, desiring ornaments or utensils (from it), there is scum like it. Thus does Allah set forth examples for the truth and the falsehood. As for the scum, it is cast off to dry out; but what is useful for mankind stays in the ground; for thus does Allah set forth (His) examples.

18- For those who hearken to their Lord is the best reward, but those who do not hearken to Him, even if they have all that is in earth, and its equivalent with it, to ransom themselves with, (it shall not be accepted); those shall have an evil reckoning, and their abode shall be in Hell, and what an evil bed (to lie in)!

19- Is he who knows that what has been sent down upon you from your Lord is the truth, the same as he who is blind (to it)? Indeed, only people with understanding will remember.

20- Those who keep Allah’s covenant, and do not break their commitment,

21- and those who maintain what Allah has commanded to be maintained (as family ties, and obedience to Allah), for they dread their Lord, and fear the evil reckoning (of the Day of Judgement),

22- and those who: patiently persevere in seeking their Lord Himself, establish proper prayers, spend of what We have provided them with secretly and in public, and avert evil by good deeds; those shall have the reward of the Hereafter.

23- The Gardens of Eternal Abode; which they shall enter with those who were righteous among their parents, their spouses, and their offspring, and the angels shall enter upon them from every gate.

24- (Saying,) “Peace be upon you for having patiently persevered. Now, how excellent is the reward of the Hereafter!”

25- But those who: break Allah’s covenant after having pledged their word to it, sever what Allah has commanded to be maintained (as family ties, and obedience to Allah), and make mischief in the land; those shall have the curse (of Allah), and they shall have the worst of homes (in Hell).

26- Allah expands and constricts the sustenance to whomsoever He pleases (whether he is a believer or a disbeliever). And they (the disbelievers) exult in this worldly life although this worldly life compared to the Hereafter is nothing but a passing comfort.

27- And those who disbelieve say, “Why has a sign not been sent down upon him?” Say, “Allah leads astray whom He pleases, and He guides to Himself those who turn to Him in repentance.

28- Those who believe, and whose hearts feel safe and at ease by remembering Allah: Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts feel safe and secure.

29- Those who believe and do good deeds, bliss shall be theirs, as well as a beautiful place of (final) return.”

30- Thus have We sent you to a nation before which other nations had passed away, to recite upon them that which We revealed to you, yet they disbelieve in the All-Merciful. Say, “He is my Lord, there is no god but He, in Him I put my trust, and to Him is my repentance!”

31- And if there is a Qur’an with which mountains could be moved (from their places), or the earth could be cloven asunder, or the dead could be spoken to (they still will not believe). Nay, the decision of all affairs rests with Allah. Have those who believe not yet given up all hope (of their believing)? For indeed, had Allah willed it, He could have guided all mankind. But the disbelievers will never cease to be struck with some calamity for what they did, or it will fall close to their homes (as a warning), until the promise of Allah comes to pass, for indeed, Allah never breaks His promise.

32- And indeed, Messengers before you were mocked, but I granted respite to those who disbelieved, and then I punished them, and what a punishment that was!

33- Is He Who stands watch over every soul for what it earns, (like any other)? Yet they attribute partners to Allah! Say, “Name them! Or will you inform Him of that which He does not know exists in earth? Or (will you tell Him) just empty words?” Nay, it was made attractive to those who disbelieve their own scheming, and they were turned away from the (straight) path. Indeed, whomever Allah leads astray shall never have a guide!

34- For them is a punishment in this worldly life, but harder indeed, is the punishment of the Hereafter: and they shall have no preserver against Allah.

35- The description of the Garden which is promised to the God-fearing (is that): beneath it rivers flow, its produce is eternal as well as its shade. That is the reward of those who fear Allah, and the reward of the disbelievers is the Fire (of Hell).

36- And those whom We had given the Book (the Torah and the Gospel) rejoice in that (Qur’an) which has been sent down to you, while among the (contentious) factions are some who deny some of it. Say, “Indeed, I am commanded: to worship Allah (alone), and not to associate partners with Him! To Him (alone) I call (people), and to Him is the return (for Judgement).”

37- And thus have We sent it (the Qur’an) down as a (final) judgement in Arabic, but if you follow their vain desires after the knowledge that has come to you, then you shall have no protector or preserver against Allah.

38- And indeed We sent Messengers before you, and We gave them spouses and offspring (being men not angels). And it is not for a Messenger to bring a sign (on his own) except by Allah’s leave, for each era has its own book. (see 5:48)

39- Allah blots out or confirms whatever (laws, signs or revelations) He pleases: for He has the Mother Book (the authoritative source of all Divine Books).

40- And whether We show you a part of that which We have promised them (of punishment) or whether We take your soul (before that), upon you is only the delivery of the message, and upon Us is the Reckoning (the Judgement).

41- Do not they see that We come to the land (of the disbelievers) and take away from it its outlying borders (giving them to the believers)? Whatever Allah decides, none can reverse His decision: for He is Swift in Reckoning.

42- And indeed those who were before them (the disbelievers) schemed; but all (effective) scheming belongs only to Allah: He knows whatever every person earns (of good or evil), and the disbelievers shall surely know to whom shall be the reward of the Hereafter.

43- And those who disbelieve say, “You are not a Messenger!” Say, “Allah is all-sufficient as a witness between me and you, as well as those who have knowledge of the Book.”

Chapter of Joseph

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- A (Alif), L (Lam), R (Ra’). These are the revelations of the Perspicuous Book.

2- We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an (reading) that you may understand.

3- We narrate to you the best stories (about the previous generations) by inspiring you this Qur’an, for indeed, you were before it of those who were unaware (of the truth about them).

4- When Joseph said to his father, “O father, I saw (in a dream) eleven stars, and the sun, and the moon; indeed I saw them prostrating themselves to me.”

5- He (his father, Jacob) said, “O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers for they may scheme a plot against you, for surely Satan is an avowed enemy of man.

6- For thus Allah shall choose you, and He shall teach you of the interpretation of dreams and visions, and He shall complete His favour upon you and upon the family of Jacob as He had completed it before upon your two (fore)fathers: Abraham and Isaac; for indeed, Allah is Omniscient, All-Wise.”

7- Surely in (the story of) Joseph and his brothers are lessons for those who inquire (about Joseph).

8- When they (Joseph’s brothers) said, “Joseph and his (full) brother (Benjamin) are certainly more beloved by our father than us although we are a (strong) band (and more useful to him); indeed, our father is in manifest error (by preferring them)!

9- (So) Kill Joseph, or cast him away in some (far) land so that your father’s favours may be yours alone, and then after it (the crime) you can become righteous people (again).”

10- One among them said, “Do not kill Joseph, but throw him into the dark bottom of the well; for he will be picked up by some caravan of travellers if you must do something.”

11- They said, “O our father, why do you not trust us with Joseph, for we are his sincere well-wishers?

12- Send him with us tomorrow to feast himself and play, and we shall take very good care of him.”

13- He (Jacob) said, “It really grieves me that you take him away with you, for I fear that the wolf may eat him while you are heedless of him.”

14- They said, “Surely, if the wolf were to eat him, while we are a (strong) band, then surely we should be losers (and useless).”

15- So, when they went away with him, and they unanimously agreed to cast him (Joseph) into the dark bottom of the well, We inspired him (to ease his mind), “You shall (later) tell them of this deed of theirs while they are not aware of you (your true identity).”

16- And they came to their father in the early part of the night, weeping.

17- They said, “O our father, we went to race each other, and we left Joseph with our belongings, and the wolf ate him! Bur you will not believe us even when we are truthful!”

18- And they came with false blood on his shirt. He (Jacob said), “Nay, your own selves prompted you to some (evil) deed, so (for me) patience is most fitting, for Allah is the One sought for help against what you falsely claim.”

19- And a caravan of travellers came, and they sent their water-seeker, and he let down his bucket (into the well). He said: “What glad tidings, it is a youth!” And they concealed him (from the others, to be sold) as merchandise; but Allah knew full-well all that they did.

20- And they (who held him) traded him for a cheap price, a few drachmas: for they deemed him worthless!

21- And the one who bought him in Egypt, said to his wife, “Make his stay (among us) honourable: maybe he will benefit us, or we can adopt him as a son.” And thus did We endow Joseph with power in the land, and in order to teach him of the interpretation of dreams and visions; for indeed Allah had full power and control over His affairs; but most people do not know (that).

22- And when he (Joseph) attained his full strength (and maturity), We bestowed upon him (Our boon of) sound judgement and knowledge; for thus do We reward the good-doers.

23- But she, in whose house he was, sought to seduce him: she bolted the doors, and said, “Hey you, come on!” He said, “Allah forbid! For he (your husband) is my master, who made my stay agreeable; indeed, the wrongdoers never prosper!”

24- And she was about to have him, and he was about to have her, but he saw a sign from his Lord; for thus did We turn evil and obscenity away from him, for he is of Our purified servants.

25- So they both raced one another to the door (Joseph to escape, and she to prevent him), and she tore his shirt from behind, but they found her master at the door. She said, “What is the penalty for him who desires evil for you wife except to be imprisoned or (to have) a painful punishment?”

26- He (Joseph) said, “She solicited me for myself.” And a far-seeing man from her people said (gave his expert opinion) that if his (Joseph’s) shirt had been ripped from the front, then her tale was true, and he was among the liars;

27- but if his shirt had been torn from behind, then she lied, and he is among the truthful.”

28- And when he (their master) saw that his shirt had been torn from behind, he said, “Surely this is of your guile (O women), indeed your guile is great!

29- O Joseph, leave and forget this (matter), and (you woman) ask forgiveness for your sin for you were among the sinners!”

30- And some women in the city said, “The wife of the Exalted One (the Aziz) is soliciting her slave for himself; truly he has smitten her with love: and indeed, we see that she is in manifest error!”

31- And when she heard of their malicious gossip, she sent to them, and she prepared couches for them, and gave each one of them a knife, and she said, “Come out to them!” And when they saw him (Joseph), they glorified him, and (in their amazement) chopped their hands: and they said, “No imperfection can be ascribed to Allah! This is no mortal! Indeed this is a noble angel!”

32- She said, “This is he about whom you blamed me, and I have already solicited him for his person but he preserved himself guiltless, so if he does not do what I command him to do, he will certainly be imprisoned, and shall be of the disgraced!”

33- He said, “My Lord, prison is more to my liking than what they call me to; and unless You turn their guile away from me, I may (in my youthful folly) be attracted to them, and join the ranks of the ignorant.”

34- So Allah answered his prayer, and turned their guile away from him, for He is the All-Hearing, the Omniscient.

35- Then it occurred to them (the Exalted One and his counsellors), after they had seen the signs (of his innocence), (that it was best) to imprison him for a time (to get him away from his wife and to stop gossip).

36- And two young men entered prison with him. One of them said, “I saw myself (in my dream) pressing (grapes to make) wine,” and the other said, “I saw myself carrying bread, on my head, from which birds were eating.” (Both said,)”Tell us its interpretation for we see that you are of the good-doers!”

37- He said, “No food shall you be provided with, but I shall tell you of its interpretation before it comes to you, for that is of what my Lord has taught me. For indeed, I have forsaken the religion of a people who do not believe in Allah, and they are indeed disbelievers in the Hereafter.

38- And I have followed the religion of my fathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, for in no way can we associate anything with Allah. And that is from the grace of Allah upon us and upon mankind, but most people are not grateful.

39- O my two fellows in prison (I ask you), ‘Are diverse lords (differing among themselves) better, or Allah, the One, the Ever-Conquering?’

40- You do not worship, other than Him, except (mere) names that you have devised, you and your fathers, for which Allah has not sent down any authority. Indeed, judgement belongs only to Allah, He decreed that you do not worship other than Him; for that is the upright religion, but most people do not know (that).

41- O my two fellows in prison, as for one of you, he shall give wine to his master to drink, as for the other, he shall be crucified, and the birds shall eat of his head. The matter you both consulted (me) about is settled.”

42- And he said to the one whom he thought shall survive, “Mention me to your master.” But the Evil One made him forget reminding his master, and so, he (Joseph) stayed in prison for several years.

43- And the king said, “I saw (in my dream) seven fat cows that were devoured by seven lean cows, and seven green ears of wheat, and another seven withered ears. O chiefs of the people, give me your opinion of my vision if you can interpret visions.

44- They said, “(They are probably only) Jumbled dreams, and we have no knowledge of the interpretation of dreams.”

45- Then the one, of the two (fellow prisoners), who survived (prison), and remembered after a time, said, “I can tell you its interpretation, so send me (to Joseph).”

46- (He said,) “Joseph, O man of truth, give us your considered opinion about seven fat cows that are devoured by seven lean ones, and seven green ears (of wheat), and other withered ones, that I might return to the people that they may know.”

47- He (Joseph) said, “For seven years you shall diligently sow, and whatever (harvest) you reap, you shall leave in the ear, except a little, of which you shall eat.

48- Then there will come after that seven hard ones (years), which shall devour what you have laid by in advance for them, (all) except a little of what you have (specially) guarded.

49- After that will come a year during which the people shall be succoured (by rain or the flood of the Nile), and during which they shall press (fruits and olives for wine and oil).”

50- The king said, “Bring him to me!” But when the messenger (of the king) came to him, he (Joseph) said, “Return to your master, and ask him what was the matter with the women who chopped their hands, for my master (the exalted one) knows full-well about their guile.”

51- He (the king) said (to the women), “What is the matter with you that you solicited Joseph for himself?” They said, “No imperfection can be ascribed to Allah! We know of him (Joseph) no evil!” And the wife of the exalted one said, “Now the truth is revealed! I solicited him, and indeed he is among the truthful (men)!”

52- (And then Joseph said), “That (enquiry that I asked for) is to make him (the exalted one) know that I did not betray him in his absence, and that Allah does not guide the guile of the treacherous.

53- Nor do I absolve my own self (of blame): for the (human) soul is certainly prone to evil, except those upon whom my Lord has bestowed His Mercy: for surely my Lord is All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful.”

54- And the king said, “Bring him to me; I shall secure him for my own (service),” and when he talked to him (Joseph), he said, “Surely, you are with us this day of high rank, and (fully) trusted.”

55- He (Joseph) said, “Appoint me over the storehouses of the land, for I am a knowledgeable keeper.”

56- And thus did We endow Joseph with power in the land, to abide in it wherever he desires (after being imprisoned), for We bestow Our mercy upon whom We please, and We do not allow the reward of the good-doers to be lost.

57- And indeed, the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believed and used to fear Allah.

58- And Joseph’s brothers came (because of the famine), and they entered his presence, and he knew them but they did not recognise him.

59- And when he (Joseph) provided them with their provisions, he said, “Bring me a brother of yours, from your father; do you not see that I give full measure, and that I am the best of hosts?

60- But if do not bring him to me, then there shall be no (more) provisions for you with me, nor shall you (even) approach me.”

61- They said, “We will try to convince our father about him: this we shall certainly do!”

62- He (Joseph) said to his servants, “Put their merchandise (that they came with) into their saddles that they may recognize it when they go back so that they may return.”

63- And when they returned to their father, they said, “O our father, (more) provisions are denied us (unless we take our brother), so send our brother with us to get provisions, and we shall certainly take good care of him.”

64- He (Jacob) said, “Can I entrust him with you, except as I had entrusted you before with his brother? But indeed Allah is the Best of Keepers, and He is the Most Merciful of the Merciful.”

65- And when they opened their baggage, they found that their merchandise had been returned to them. They said, “O our father what (more) can we desire? This, our merchandise, has been returned to us: so we shall get provisions for our family, and we shall take good care of our brother, and (at the same time) be richer by a camel’s load of provisions. That is but an easily-acquired quantity.”

66- He (Jacob) said, “I will not send him with you until you give me a binding oath, in the name of Allah, that you will bring him back to me; unless you are prevented by force.” And when they gave him their binding oath, he said, “May Allah be Trustee over what we have just been saying.”

67- And he said, “O my sons, do not enter from one gate, and enter through separate gates (as a precaution) as I can not avail you anything against (the will of) Allah; for verily, the decision belongs only to Allah: on Him I put my trust: and on Him let all who trust (Allah) put their trust.”

68- And when they entered from where their father had commanded them, nothing would have availed them anything against (the will of) Allah for it was but a desire of Jacob’s soul (to protect his sons), which he fulfilled. Indeed, Jacob was endowed with knowledge for We taught him (that one must do all that he can, and trust to the rest with Allah), but most people do not know.

69- And when they entered before Joseph, he sheltered his brother with him, and said, “I am your brother, so do not grieve over what they used to do.”

70- And when he (Joseph) provided them with their provisions, he put the drinking cup (of the king) in his brother’s saddle. And then a crier called out, “O you (of the) caravan behold, you are certainly thieves!”

71- And they said, as they drew near, “What is it that you miss?”

72- They said, “We miss the drinking cup of the king; and whoever brings it will have (the reward of) a camel’s load (of provisions); and I will be guarantor of that.”

73- They said, “By Allah, you know that we did not come to make mischief in the land, and certainly we are no thieves!”

74- They said, “Then what should be his (the thief’s) punishment if you are lying?”

75- They (the brothers) said, “The punishment of him in whose saddle it (the drinking cup) is found is that he himself be its repayment (to be enslaved), for thus do we punish the wrongdoers.”

76- So he started (the search) with their bags, before (he came to) the bag of his brother: at length he brought it out from his brother’s bag. Thus did We scheme for Joseph for he could not have taken his brother according to the king’s law, unless Allah had willed it. We raise the rank of whom We please (like Joseph) for indeed above every one with knowledge there is one who is more knowledgeable (up to Allah who is the Omniscient).

77- They (the brothers) said, “If he (Benjamin) stole, then indeed a (full-)brother of his had stolen before (implying that they inherited the tendency to stealing from their mother). So Joseph concealed it (his anger) within himself, and did not reveal it to them. He said (to himself), “Your situation is evil indeed, but Allah knows full-well all that you falsely allege!”

78- They said, “O exalted one, he (Benjamin) has a father who is a very old man (and dotes on him), so take one of us in his place, for we see that you are of the good-doers!”

79- He (Joseph) said, “Allah forbid that we take other than him with whom we found our property: for then indeed, we would be wrongdoers.”

80- So, when they saw no hope of him (Joseph), they went aside to confer privately. Their elder said, “Do you not know that your father has taken from you a binding oath in the name of Allah, and before that you neglected your duty towards Joseph? I shall not quit the land till my father gives me leave, or till Allah judges for me, for He is the Best of Judges.

81- So return to your father, and say, ‘O our father, Your son has stolen, and we testify only about what we know for we are no keepers of the unseen (secrets).

82- And ask the (people of) the town we were in, and the (people of) the caravan in which we came, for indeed we are truthful.'”

84- He (Jacob) said, “Nay, your own selves prompted you to some (evil) deed, so patience is most fitting (for me), for it may be that Allah shall bring them all back to me. He is indeed the Omniscient, the All-Wise.”

85- And he turned away from them, and said, “How great is my sorrow!” And his eyes turned white from sorrow for he choked with restrained grief.

86- They said, “By Allah, you will persist in remembering Joseph till you become worn out, or be one of those who perish.”

97- He said, “I only complain of my anguish and grief to Allah, for I know from Allah that which you do not know.

87- O my sons, go and enquire secretly after Joseph and his brother, and never give up hope of Allah’s soothing mercy: truly no one despairs of Allah’s mercy, except the disbelieving people.”

88- Then, when they entered into his (Joseph’s) presence they said, “O exalted one, we and our family have been afflicted with distress, and we have (now) brought but unwanted merchandise (for you previously returned it to us): but pay us full measure, and give it to us as charity: for Allah does reward the charitable.”

89- He (Joseph) said, “Do you know what you have done with Joseph and his (full-)brother when you were ignorant?”

90- They said, “Are you indeed Joseph?” He said, “I am Joseph, and this is my brother (Benjamin); for indeed Allah has bestowed His bounties upon us. Verily, he who fears Allah and patiently perseveres, then surely Allah shall not allow the reward of the good-doers to be lost.”

91- They said, “By Allah, Allah has indeed favoured you over us, for indeed, we were sinners.”

92- He (Joseph) said, “This day, there shall be no blame upon you. May Allah forgive you, for He is the Most Merciful of the Merciful.

93- Go with this shirt of mine, and throw it upon my father’s face, and he shall recover his sight, and bring to me all your family.”

94- And when the caravan left (Egypt), their father (Jacob) said, “I do indeed detect the scent of Joseph: unless you think me a dotard.”

95- They (Jacob’s family) said, “By Allah, you are still (lost) in your old delusion!”

96- And then, when the bearer of glad tidings arrived, he cast it (the shirt) upon his face, and he recovered his sight. He (Jacob) said, “Did I not tell you that I know from Allah that which you do not know?”

97- They (his sons) said, “O our father, ask forgiveness (from Allah), on our behalf, for our sins; for we were indeed sinners!”

98- He said, “I shall ask forgiveness on your behalf from our Lord, for He is indeed, the All-Forgiving, the Ever-Merciful!”

99- And when they (Jacob and his family) entered before Joseph, he sheltered his parents with him, and he said, “Enter Egypt, by Allah’s will, safe and secure!”

100- And he raised his parents (with him) upon the throne, and they (his brothers) fell down in prostration before him, and he said, “O my father, this is the interpretation of my vision (that I saw) before, Allah has made it come true! And He was indeed good to me when He took me out of prison, and brought you (all here) out of the desert, after Satan had incited evil between me and my brothers. Verily, Allah is gracious towards whom He pleases, for He is the Omniscient, the All-Wise.

101- My Lord! You have bestowed upon me some sovereignty, and You taught me the interpretation of dreams. O Creator of Heavens and Earth, You are my protector in this world and in the Hereafter, (please), take my soul as a Muslim (one who submits wholly to Allah), and join me with the doers of good!”

102- That (story) is of the news of the unseen that We have inspired you (O Muhammad) with, for were you not present with them when they concerted their plans together as they schemed.

103- For indeed, most people will not be believers, even if you are full of care for them.

104- And you (Muhammad) do not ask them (the disbelievers) for any reward for it (the Qur’an); for indeed, it is only a reminder for all creation.

105- And how many a sign in the heavens and the earth that they pass by; yet they turn away from it!

106- And indeed, most of them do not believe in Allah (alone) without their associating partners with Him.

107- Do they then feel secure against the coming upon them of an overwhelming veil of Allah’s punishment, or that the Hour (of Judgement) may come upon them suddenly while they are unaware?

108- Say (O Muhammad), “This is my pathway (the Straight Path of Allah), I call (mankind) to Allah with eye-opening evidence, I and whoever follows me (do that); Glory be to Allah, for indeed, I am not of those who associate partners with Allah!”

109- And indeed, We did not send to the people of the communities any but men (not angels) that We inspired. Have they not traveled through the land, and seen the final reward of those who were before them. Verily, the abode of the Hereafter is better for those who fear Allah! Will you not then understand?

110- At length, when the Messengers saw no hope (of their people believing), and (some irresolute Messengers) thought that they were denied what they had been promised (of Allah’s help), Our help came to them, and We safely delivered whom We pleased; for Our punishing power can not be turned back from the wrongdoing people. (see 21:87)

111- Verily, in their (the Messengers’) narratives is a lesson for people with understanding, for it is not a fabricated story, but it is a confirmation of that which went before it (of Scriptures), a detailed explanation of everything (needed for religion), a guide, and a mercy for people who believe.

Chapter of Hood

[In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful.]

1- Alif (A), Lam (L), Ra’ (R), (this is) a Book, whose verses are made perfect, then explained in detail, from One Who is All-Wise and All-Aware.

2- (Teaching) That you should not worship anyone but Allah. Indeed, I (Muhammad) come to you from Him as a warner (of punishment to the disbelievers) and a bringer of good news (to the believers).

3- That you should ask forgiveness from your Lord, and then you should turn to Him in repentance, and He shall let you enjoy the good pleasures (of this world) for an appointed time, and He shall bestow upon everyone deserving of grace from His bounty. But if they turn away (from His commandments), then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a Great Day (Day of Judgement).

4- Indeed, to Allah is your final return (for judgement), for He has full power over everything.

5- Behold! they bend their chests low to conceal themselves from Him. Behold! when they cover themselves with their clothes, He (still) knows that which they conceal and that which they reveal; for indeed, He knows full-well the secrets of your hearts.

6- Indeed, there is no living creature in earth but its sustenance rests with Allah; and He knows its place of settling (while alive) and its place of storing (when dead); all that is (recorded) in a clear record.

7- And It is He Who created the Heavens and the earth in six days; and (before that) His Throne was upon the water; (He did that) to test which of you is the best in deeds. And if you (O Muhammad) say, “You shall be resurrected after death!” Those who disbelieve will say, “Indeed, this is evident sorcery (having no base of truth)!”

8- And if We delay the punishment for them for a definite term, they are sure to say “What holds it (the punishment) back?” Behold! On the day it (actually) comes to them, it will not be turned away from them, and they shall be beset by that (punishment) which they used to mock.

9- And if We give man a taste of Our mercy, and then pluck it away from him, he will turn into a hopeless, blasphemous ingrate.

10- And if We give him a taste of (Our) favour after adversity has touched him, He is sure to say, “All evil has departed from me!” Behold, he is exultant and boastful.

11- (All men do so) Except those who patiently persevere (in spite of adversity), and do good deeds; for them, there shall be forgiveness and a great reward.

12- Perhaps you may (feel inclined to) neglect some of what is revealed to you (because of the disbelievers’ mockery), and your chest may feel constrained by it lest they should say, “Why has not a treasure been sent down upon him, or an angel has come down with him?” Surely, you are only a warner (sent to warn them, and not their guardian); for indeed, Allah is Guardian over everything.

13- Or would they say, “He has fabricated it (the Qur’an).” Say, “Then bring ten fabricated Surahs (chapters) like it (in truth and eloquence), and call whomever you can (of humans and Jinn to help you), other than Allah, if you are truthful.”

14- But if they do not respond to you, then know that it has been sent down by Allah’s knowledge, and that there is no god but He; will you then surrender yourselves wholly to Allah (be Muslims)?

15- Whoever desires the life of this world, with its pomp and glitter, We shall pay them in full for their deeds in it, and in it they shall not receive short measure.

16- Those are they who shall have nothing in the Hereafter but Fire, and what they did in it (this worldly life) shall come to nothing for what they used to do in it was wrong.

17- Can he (the believer) who relies upon a clear proof (the Qur’an) from his Lord, and which is recited by a witness (Muhammad) from Him (be equal to the disbeliever)?  And before it (the Qur’an) was the book of Moses, a guide and a mercy. Those (believers) believe in it (the Qur’an), but whoever of the factions (of disbelievers) disbelieves in it, then the Fire (of Hell) shall be his appointed place. So, do not be in doubt of it (the Qur’an), for it is the truth from your Lord, but most people would not believe.

18- And who is more wrong than he who fabricates a lie and falsely ascribes it to Allah? Those shall be brought before their Lord (for judgement), and the witnesses shall say, “Those are they who fabricated lies against their Lord.” Behold! the curse of Allah shall be upon the wrongdoers!

19- Who turn (people) away from the (straight) path of Allah, seeking to make it crooked for they are themselves disbelievers in the Hereafter.

20- Those cannot thwart Allah on earth (by escaping Him), and it is not for them to have other protectors than Allah. They shall have the punishment doubled for them for they (were so contrary that they) would not hear (the truth) nor would they see (it).

21- Those are they who have lost themselves (to Hell), and those whom they fabricated (as partners to Allah) shall forsake them.

22- No question that in the Hereafter they shall be the greatest losers!

23- Verily, those who believe, do good deeds, and humble themselves in contentment before their Lord, those shall be the Dwellers of the Garden, to abide in it forever.

24- The example of the two parties (disbelievers and believers) is like the blind and deaf, and the one who can see and hear; are they equal compared to one another? Will you not then take heed?

25- And indeed We sent Noah to his people (saying), “I am a frank warner to you,

26- that you should worship none but Allah, for I fear for you the punishment of a painful day.”

27- The chiefs of those who disbelieved among his people said, “We do not see that you are more than a man like us, nor do we see that any follow you but the basest among us, without mature thinking, nor do we think that you have any priority above us; indeed, we think you are liars.”

28- He (Noah) said, “O my people, tell me, if I rely upon a clear proof from my Lord, and He has granted me mercy (Prophethood) from His own presence, but it has been hidden from your sight: shall we compel you to accept it when you are averse to it?

29- And O my people, I ask you no money for it, for my reward rests only with Allah. And I am not one who drives away the believers, for they shall meet their Lord (and He shall avenge them of those who wronged them), but I see that you are an ignorant people.

30- And O my people, who will help me against Allah if I drive them away? Will you not remember (Allah’s omnipotence and justice)?

31- Nor do I tell you that I have the treasuries of Allah, nor do I know the unseen (secrets), nor do I say, ‘I am an angel.’, nor yet do I say, of those whom your eyes despise, that Allah will not grant them any good, for Allah knows best what is in their hearts, for then I would be of the wrongdoers.”

32- They (the disbelievers) said, “O Noah, you have disputed with us, and you have prolonged the dispute with us, so bring us what you promised us (of punishment) if you are of the truthful (ones).”

33- He (Noah) said, “Indeed, only Allah can bring it to you if He wills, for you can not thwart Allah (by escaping Him).

34- And if Allah wills to tempt you into straying (because you will not be guided), my advice cannot benefit you even if I give you sincere advice; for He is your Lord, and to Him you shall return (for judgement).”

35- Or would they (the disbelievers) say, “He (Muhammad) has fabricated it (the Qur’an) himself!” Say (O Muhammad), “If I have indeed fabricated it, then let my criminal deeds be upon me, for I am guiltless of what you commit of crimes.”

36- And it was revealed to Noah (that), “No one shall believe from your people except those who have already believed, so do not grieve over what they do.

37- And so, build the ark under Our eyes, and by Our inspiration, and do not address Me on behalf of those who did wrong: for they are destined for drowning.”

38- And he started to build the ark, and whenever chiefs of his people passed him, they mocked him. He (Noah) said, “If you mock us, we shall mock you as you used to mock us.

39- For you shall know to whom shall come a punishment that shall disgrace him, and upon whom shall fall an enduring punishment.”

40- At length, when Our command arrived, and the face of earth gushed forth (with water), We said, “Carry in it (the ark), of each kind two spouses (male and female), and your family, except those against whom the Word (of punishment) has already been given, and (also) those who believe; but (alas!) nobody believed with him except a few.

41- And he (Noah) said, ““Embark in it (the Ark), its sailing and its landing are in the name of Allah! Indeed, my Lord is All-Forgiving, Ever-Merciful!”

42- And it sailed with them amid waves like mountains, and Noah called out to his son, who was in an isolated place, “O my son, embark with us, and be not with the disbelievers.”

43- He (the son) said, “I will betake myself to a mountain that will preserve me from the water.” He (Noah) said, “There is no preserver, this day, from the command of Allah, except those upon whom He has bestowed mercy.” And the waves interposed between them, and he (the son) was among those who drowned.

44- And it was proclaimed, “O earth, swallow up your water, and O sky, desist (from raining); and the water ebbed, and the matter was ended. And it (the ark) came to rest upon the (mount) Judi, and it was proclaimed, “Away (to perdition) with the wrongdoers!”

45- And Noah called upon his Lord and said, “O my Lord, verily, my son is of my family! And certainly, Your promise is true, for You are the Wisest of Judges.” (see 11:40)

46- He (Allah) said, “O Noah, he is not of your family (for he was among those upon whom the word had already been given: see verse 40). It is not a righteous deed (to ask for saving a disbeliever), so do not ask that about which you have no knowledge. I advise you lest you should be of the ignorant!”

47- He (Noah) said, “O my Lord, I seek refuge with you from asking You that of which I have no knowledge, and unless You forgive me, and have mercy upon me, I shall be among the losers!”

48- It was proclaimed, “O Noah, disembark from it (the ark) with peace from Us and blessings upon you and some people (that will spring) from those with you. But (there will be) other people whom We shall grant pleasurable things (for a time) and then they will be afflicted with a painful punishment from Us.

49- Such are the news from the unseen that We reveal to you. You did not know it or your people before this, so patiently persevere (in spreading the word of Allah) for the final reward is for the God-fearing.

50- And to (the people of) Aad (We sent) their brother Hood. He said, “O my people, worship Allah for you have no god but Him; indeed, you are only fabricating lies (that you worship).

51- And O my people, I ask you no reward for it (my guiding you) for my reward is with Him Who created me; would you not understand?

52- And O my people, ask forgiveness from your Lord, and then turn to Him in repentance, and He will release (rain from) the sky upon you in abundance, and He shall add strength to your strength, so do not turn away as malefactors.”

53- They said, “O Hood, you have not brought us any clear proof, and we will not leave our gods because of what you say, for we do not believe in you.

54- We can only say that (perhaps) some of our gods have afflicted you with evil!” He (Hood) said, “I call Allah to witness, and you bear witness that I am guiltless of what you associate with Allah of partners

55- other than Him. So, concoct your plans against me, all of you, and do not give me respite.

56- I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord, for there is no living creature but He is seizing it by the forelock (having complete control over it). Verily, my Lord is on a straight path (commanding truth and justice).

57- So, if you turn away, then indeed, I have delivered to you what I have been sent with, and Allah shall appoint other people as successors(on earth), and you shall not be able to harm Him in the least. Indeed, my Lord is Supreme Keeper over everything!”

58- And when Our command (of punishment) came to pass, We safely delivered Hood and those who believed with him by a mercy from Us, and We saved them from a harsh punishment (that afflicted the disbelievers).

59- And such were (the people of) Aad, they rejected the revelations of their Lord and disobeyed His Messengers, and they followed the command of every obstinate, overbearing transgressor.

60- And they shall be followed by a curse in this world (for the believers shall always curse them), and on the Day of Resurrection (they shall be cursed too). Indeed, (the people of) Aad disbelieved in their Lord, so away (to perdition) with Aad, the (disbelieving) people of Hood!

61- And to Thamood, (We sent) their brother Salih. He said, “O my people, worship Allah for you have no god but Him; It is He who has created you from the earth and settled you in it: so ask Him forgiveness, and then return in repentance to Him, for indeed, My Lord is near, and responsive (to prayer).”

62- They said, “O Salih, you have been the centre of our hope before this. Would you forbid us from worshipping what our fathers used to worship? Indeed, we feel a disturbing doubt about what you are inviting us to.

63- He (Salih) said, “O my people, tell me, if I rely upon a clear proof from my Lord, and He has granted me mercy (Prophethood) from His own presence, then who would help me against Allah if I disobeyed Him? You will only augment my loss!

64- O my people, this she-camel of Allah is a sign for you, so let it feed in the land of Allah, and do not touch it with any evil lest a swift punishment should seize you.”

65- But they did hamstring it (and killed the she-camel). So he (Salih) said, “Enjoy yourselves in your homes for three days (before your punishment arrives). That is a promise that is far from false!”

66- And when Our command (of punishment) came to pass, We safely delivered Salih, and those who believed with him, by a mercy from Us, from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, your Lord is the Almighty, the Exalted in Power.

67- And those who did wrong were overtaken by the (awful) Cry, and by morning, they were lying prostrate (dead) in their homes,

68- as if they had never flourished in it! Indeed, (the people of) Thamood disbelieved in their Lord, so away (to perdition) with Thamood!

69- And indeed, Our Messengers (angels) came to Abraham with a message of good cheer. They said, “Peace!” He (Abraham) said, “Peace!” and did not tarry in bringing a roasted calf.

70- But when he saw their hands did not reach it (the food), he felt they were beyond his knowledge, and he entertained a fear of them. They said, “Do not be frightened! We have been sent to the people of Lot!”

71- And his (Abraham’s) wife was standing by, and she laughed (pleased for their help to Lot), so We (through the angels) gave her the good news about Isaac (her coming son), and after Isaac (a grandson,) Jacob.

72- She said, “O woe to me! Will I give birth while I am old, and this husband of mine is an old man? This is indeed a marvelous thing!”

73- They said, “Would you marvel at Allah’s command? May the mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you people of the House (of Abraham), for indeed, He (Allah) is Praiseworthy, and Glorious!”

74- And when dismay departed from Abraham, and the good news came to him, he started arguing with Us (through the angels) concerning the people of Lot.

75- Indeed, Abraham was forbearing, ever-invoking Allah’s forgiveness (for himself and others) and repentant.

76- (Allah said, through His angels),”O Abraham, turn away from this (arguing). The decree of your Lord has arrived, and for them, there shall come a punishment that cannot be turned back!”

77- And when our Messengers came to Lot (looking like comely young men), he was distressed on their behalf, and felt unable to protect them, and he said, “This is a distressful day!”

78- And his people came rushing towards him; for previously they were used to do evil deeds (sodomy). He (Lot) said, “O my people, these are my daughters, they are purer for you (to marry), so fear Allah, and do not shame me in my guests. Is there not among you a reasonable man?”

79- They said, “You surely know that we have no right (or desire) to your daughters, and you surely know what we desire!”

80- He (Lot) said, “Would that I had power over you, or that I could betake myself to some powerful support (to resist you).”

81- They (the angels) said, “O Lot, we are the Messengers of you Lord. They shall never get to you, so travel during the remaining portion of the night with your household, and let no one of you turn around, excepting your wife for she shall be stricken with whatever strikes them. Indeed, their appointed time (for punishment) is on the morning. Is the morning not near enough?”

82- So, when our decree came to pass, We turned it (the city of Lot) upside down, and We rained down on them well-arrayed (showers of) backed clay,

83- marked as from your Lord: nor is it (the city of Lot) far from the wrongdoers (of Makkah).

84- And to Madyan (people, We sent) their brother Shuaib. He said, “O my people, worship Allah for you have no other god but He, and do not give short measure and weight, for I see that you are in prosperity (and in no need of such dealings). Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a beleaguering day (Day of Judgement).

85- And O my people, give full measure and weight justly, and do not diminish the value of people’s things, and do not perpetrate evil in the land causing mischief.

86- An enduring good deed (to your account) with Allah is better for you if you are believers. Indeed, I am not a keeper over you (for everyone is his own keeper).” (see 18:46, 19:76 and 75:14)

87- They said, “O Shuaib, do your prayers (that addled your brains) command you that we leave off what our fathers worship, or that we leave off doing whatever we desire with our wealth? (Come on! for we though that) You are forbearing and reasonable!”

88- He (Shuaib) said, “O my people, tell me, if I rely upon a clear proof from my Lord, and (if) He has provided me with good provision (shall I corrupt it with ill-gains?) Nor do I wish, to oppose you, and do that which I forbid you to do. I only desire (your) betterment to the best of my ability. Indeed, my success (in my task) can only come from Allah. In Him I put my trust, and to Him I turn in repentance.”

89- And O my people, let not your disagreement with me cause you to be stricken with the like of that which had struck the people of Noah, or the people of Salih, or the people of Hood. And indeed, the people of Lot are not far from you!

90- So, ask forgiveness from your Lord, and then return to Him in repentance, for indeed, my Lord is All-Forgiving, Affectionate!”

91- They said, “O Shuaib, we do not understand much of what you say; in fact, we see that you are weak among us, and but for your family, we would certainly have stoned you for you are not too exalted with us.”

92- He (Shuaib) said, “O my people, is then my family more exalted with you than Allah that you cast Him away behind your backs (heedless of Him)? Indeed, Allah has comprehensive knowledge of all that you do.

93- And O my people, do your best effort: for I shall do so, and you shall (soon) know upon whom will come a punishment that shall disgrace him, and who (among us) is a liar. So watch out, for indeed, I shall be a watcher with you.”

94- And when Our command (of punishment) came to pass, We saved, by a mercy from Our Own, Shuaib and those who believed with him; and those who did wrong were overtaken by the (awful) Cry, and by morning, they were lying prostrate (dead) in their homes,

95- As if they had never flourished in it! So away (to perdition) with Madyan as Thamud were sent away (to perdition)!

96- And indeed, We sent Moses with Our revelations and a clear argument,

97- to Pharaoh and his chiefs, but they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh was not reasonable.

98- He shall precede his people on the Day of Resurrection, and lead them into the Fire (of Hell): and what an evil destination to arrive at!

99- And they shall be followed by a curse in this (life) and on the Day of Resurrection: and woeful indeed is the gift which shall be granted (them)!

100- These are some of the stories of communities which We relate to you: of them some are (still) standing, and some have been mown down (by the sickle of time).

101- Verily, We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves, and those gods, that they called upon instead of Allah, did not avail them anything when the command of your Lord came to pass, for they did not give them anything but perdition.

102- And likewise is the chastisement of your Lord when He chastises communities that are wrongdoers: His chastisement is indeed painful and stern.

103- Indeed, there is a lesson in that (story) for those who fear the punishment of the Hereafter. That (Day of Judgement) is a day on which mankind shall be gathered together, and that is a day that shall be witnessed (by all).

104- And We but defer it for a definite term.

105- The day it comes, no soul shall talk except by His leave; some among them shall be wretched, and some shall be happy.

106- As for those who are wretched, they shall be in the Fire, where there shall be for them (much) groaning and sobbing.

107- Abiding in it for as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except as your Lord pleases. Verily, your Lord is He Who accomplishes what He decides upon.

108- As for those who are blessed with happiness, they shall be in the Garden, abiding in it forever, as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except as your Lord pleases, an uninterrupted bounty.

109- So, do not be in doubt (O Muhammad) as to what these (disbelievers) worship; they only worship as their fathers worshipped before (blindly and without guidance). And indeed, We shall pay them in full their share (of punishment), undiminished.

110- And We have indeed given Moses the Book (the Torah), but disputes (in its interpretation) arose regarding it; and had not a word been already given (by Allah to defer their punishment), the matter would have been decided among them (in this worldly life); for indeed they (the Jews) have disturbing doubts regarding it (the Qur’an).

111- And indeed, your Lord shall pay both (disputing parties) in full for their deeds; for He is All-Aware of what they do.

112- Therefore, act uprightly as you, and those who repented with you, have been commanded to, and do not transgress all bounds; for He sees full-well what you do.

113- And do not incline towards those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you; for having no protectors against Allah, you shall not be helped.

114- And establish proper prayers at the two ends of day and during portions of the night, for indeed, the good deeds (as praying) remove the evil deeds (or sins), and that is a reminder for the mindful (who accepts good advice).

115- And patiently persevere (in obeying Allah) for Allah does not allow the reward of those who do their best to be wasted.

116- Why was there not, among the generations before you, people of good sense who forbade mischief in the land, with the exception of a few of them whom We saved? But those who did wrong pursued that (life) in which they indulged themselves in luxury (and the satisfaction of their desires) for they were criminals.

117- And indeed, Allah would never wrongfully destroy any community, while their people are good-doers.

118- And had your Lord willed it, He would have made mankind one nation (of one religion), but they continue to be different (because many follow their vain desires).

119- Except those upon whom Your Lord bestowed His mercy (for they used their minds and knew the truth), and that is why He created them (having free will, and thus eligible for reward and punishment). And the word of your Lord shall be fulfilled: “I shall fill Hell with the Jinn and mankind, all together!”

120- And all that We relate to you of the stories of the Messengers is to make your heart steady. And in this (chapter), there has come to you: the truth, an advice, and a reminder to the believers.

121- And say to those who do not believe, “Do your best effort: for we shall do (so)!”

122- And wait (for judgement), for we too are waiting!”

123- For to Allah belongs the unseen (secrets) of the heavens and the earth, and to Him all matters are returned (for decision). So, worship Him, and put your trust in Him, for Allah in not unaware of what you do.
