In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Ta'. Sin. Mim. طسٓمٓ۝۱
These are the verses of the Clear Book. تِلْكَ ءَايَٰتُ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ ٱلْمُبِينِ ۝۲
(O Muhammad), you will perhaps grieve yourself to death because these people do not believe. لَعَلَّكَ بَٰخِعٌ نَّفْسَكَ أَلَّا يَكُونُوا۟ مُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۳
If We will, We can send down a Sign to them from heaven, so their necks will be humbled to it. إِن نَّشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ ءَايَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَٰقُهُمْ لَهَا خَٰضِعِينَ ۝۴
Never does there come to them an admonition from the Merciful Lord but they turn away from it. وَمَا يَأْتِيهِم مِّن ذِكْرٍ مِّنَ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا۟ عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ ۝۵
They will soon come to know the truth of that which they have been scoffing at. فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا۟ فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنۢبَٰٓؤُا۟ مَا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ ۝۶
Do they not look at the earth, how We caused a variety of fine vegetation to grow from it (in abundance)? أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا۟ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ كَمْ أَنۢبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍ كَرِيمٍ ۝۷
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۸
Verily Your Lord is Infinitely Mighty, Most Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۹
(Recount to them about the time) when Your Lord called Moses: "Go to the wrong-doing people, وَإِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبُّكَ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنِ ٱئْتِ ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ ۝۱۰
the people of Pharaoh: do they have no fear?" قَوْمَ فِرْعَوْنَ ۚ أَلَا يَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۱
He said: "My Lord! I fear that they will brand me a liar. قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّىٓ أَخَافُ أَن يُكَذِّبُونِ ۝۱۲
My breast is constricted and my tongue is not fluent, so endow Messengership on Aaron. وَيَضِيقُ صَدْرِى وَلَا يَنطَلِقُ لِسَانِى فَأَرْسِلْ إِلَىٰ هَٰرُونَ ۝۱۳
As for me, they hold the charge of a crime against me. I fear they will put me to death." وَلَهُمْ عَلَىَّ ذَنۢبٌ فَأَخَافُ أَن يَقْتُلُونِ ۝۱۴
He said: "Certainly not! So go both of you with Our Signs. We shall be with you listening to everything. قَالَ كَلَّا ۖ فَٱذْهَبَا بِـَٔايَٰتِنَآ ۖ إِنَّا مَعَكُم مُّسْتَمِعُونَ ۝۱۵
Go, then, to Pharaoh and say to him: 'The Lord of the Universe has sent us فَأْتِيَا فِرْعَوْنَ فَقُولَآ إِنَّا رَسُولُ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۶
that you let the Children of Israel go with us.'" أَنْ أَرْسِلْ مَعَنَا بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ ۝۱۷
Pharaoh said: "Did we not bring you up among us when you were a child? قَالَ أَلَمْ نُرَبِّكَ فِينَا وَلِيدًا وَلَبِثْتَ فِينَا مِنْ عُمُرِكَ سِنِينَ ۝۱۸
You spent many years of your life among us and then you committed that deed of yours. You are very ungrateful indeed." وَفَعَلْتَ فَعْلَتَكَ ٱلَّتِى فَعَلْتَ وَأَنتَ مِنَ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ ۝۱۹
Moses replied: "I committed that act erringly. قَالَ فَعَلْتُهَآ إِذًا وَأَنَا۠ مِنَ ٱلضَّآلِّينَ ۝۲۰
Then I fled for fear of you. Then my Lord bestowed wisdom and authority on me and made me one of the Messengers. فَفَرَرْتُ مِنكُمْ لَمَّا خِفْتُكُمْ فَوَهَبَ لِى رَبِّى حُكْمًا وَجَعَلَنِى مِنَ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۲۱
Now this is the favour that you tauntingly remind me of: that you enslaved the Children of Israel!" وَتِلْكَ نِعْمَةٌ تَمُنُّهَا عَلَىَّ أَنْ عَبَّدتَّ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ ۝۲۲
Pharaoh said: "And who is this Lord of the Universe?" قَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَمَا رَبُّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۲۳
Moses answered: "The Lord of the heavens and the earth and of all that is between them, if you were only to believe." قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ ۖ إِن كُنتُم مُّوقِنِينَ ۝۲۴
Pharaoh said to those around him: "Do you hear (what he says)?" قَالَ لِمَنْ حَوْلَهُۥٓ أَلَا تَسْتَمِعُونَ ۝۲۵
Moses said: "(He is) Your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers of yore." قَالَ رَبُّكُمْ وَرَبُّ ءَابَآئِكُمُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ ۝۲۶
Pharaoh said to the audience: "This Messenger of yours who has been sent to you is simply mad." قَالَ إِنَّ رَسُولَكُمُ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُرْسِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ لَمَجْنُونٌ ۝۲۷
Moses continued: "(He is) the Lord of the east and the west, and all between them. If you only had any understanding!" قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْمَشْرِقِ وَٱلْمَغْرِبِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ ۝۲۸
Pharaoh said: "If you take any god other than me, I will certainly make you one of those (who are rotting) in prison." قَالَ لَئِنِ ٱتَّخَذْتَ إِلَٰهًا غَيْرِى لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلْمَسْجُونِينَ ۝۲۹
Moses said: "Even if I were to bring a Clear Sign to you?" قَالَ أَوَلَوْ جِئْتُكَ بِشَىْءٍ مُّبِينٍ ۝۳۰
Pharaoh said: "Then bring it if you are truthful at all." قَالَ فَأْتِ بِهِۦٓ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ ۝۳۱
(No sooner had he said this than) Moses threw down his rod and behold, it was a veritable serpent, فَأَلْقَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِىَ ثُعْبَانٌ مُّبِينٌ ۝۳۲
and he drew his hand (out of his armpit) and lo! it had become a shining object to the beholders. وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُۥ فَإِذَا هِىَ بَيْضَآءُ لِلنَّٰظِرِينَ ۝۳۳
Pharaoh said to the nobles around him: "Surely this man is a skilled magician قَالَ لِلْمَلَإِ حَوْلَهُۥٓ إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَسَٰحِرٌ عَلِيمٌ ۝۳۴
who wants to drive you out of your land by his magic. Tell us, what do you advise us?" يُرِيدُ أَن يُخْرِجَكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِكُم بِسِحْرِهِۦ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ ۝۳۵
They said: "Detain him and his brother for a while and send forth heralds to the cities قَالُوٓا۟ أَرْجِهْ وَأَخَاهُ وَٱبْعَثْ فِى ٱلْمَدَآئِنِ حَٰشِرِينَ ۝۳۶
to mobilise all skilled magicians." يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحَّارٍ عَلِيمٍ ۝۳۷
So the magicians were brought together on a particular day at a set time فَجُمِعَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ لِمِيقَٰتِ يَوْمٍ مَّعْلُومٍ ۝۳۸
and the people were told: "Will you join the assembly? وَقِيلَ لِلنَّاسِ هَلْ أَنتُم مُّجْتَمِعُونَ ۝۳۹
We may perhaps follow the religion of the magicians if they triumph." لَعَلَّنَا نَتَّبِعُ ٱلسَّحَرَةَ إِن كَانُوا۟ هُمُ ٱلْغَٰلِبِينَ ۝۴۰
When the magicians came forth (for the encounter) they said to Pharaoh: "Is there a reward for us if we triumph?" فَلَمَّا جَآءَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ قَالُوا۟ لِفِرْعَوْنَ أَئِنَّ لَنَا لَأَجْرًا إِن كُنَّا نَحْنُ ٱلْغَٰلِبِينَ ۝۴۱
He said: "Yes, you will then become those near-stationed to me." قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإِنَّكُمْ إِذًا لَّمِنَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبِينَ ۝۴۲
Moses said to them: "Throw down whatever you wish to throw." قَالَ لَهُم مُّوسَىٰٓ أَلْقُوا۟ مَآ أَنتُم مُّلْقُونَ ۝۴۳
Thereupon they threw down their ropes and their rods, and said: "By the glory of Pharaoh, we shall prevail." فَأَلْقَوْا۟ حِبَالَهُمْ وَعِصِيَّهُمْ وَقَالُوا۟ بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ ٱلْغَٰلِبُونَ ۝۴۴
Thereafter, Moses threw down his rod and behold, it went about swallowing up all the false devices they had contrived. فَأَلْقَىٰ مُوسَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِىَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ ۝۴۵
Thereupon the magicians fell down in prostration, فَأُلْقِىَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ سَٰجِدِينَ ۝۴۶
saying: "We (now) believe in the Lord of the Universe, قَالُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا بِرَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۴۷
the Lord of Moses and Aaron." رَبِّ مُوسَىٰ وَهَٰرُونَ ۝۴۸
Pharaoh said: "You accepted the word of Moses even before I granted you the leave to do so. Surely he is your chief who has taught you magic. Soon shall you come to know. I shall cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides and shall crucify all of you." قَالَ ءَامَنتُمْ لَهُۥ قَبْلَ أَنْ ءَاذَنَ لَكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ ٱلَّذِى عَلَّمَكُمُ ٱلسِّحْرَ فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ ۚ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَٰفٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ ۝۴۹
They said: "We do not care, for we are bound to return to our Lord, قَالُوا۟ لَا ضَيْرَ ۖ إِنَّآ إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا مُنقَلِبُونَ ۝۵۰
and we surely expect that Our Lord will forgive us our sins for we are the first ones to believe." إِنَّا نَطْمَعُ أَن يَغْفِرَ لَنَا رَبُّنَا خَطَٰيَٰنَآ أَن كُنَّآ أَوَّلَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۵۱
We revealed to Moses: "Set forth with My servants by night for you will be pursued." وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِىٓ إِنَّكُم مُّتَّبَعُونَ ۝۵۲
Then Pharaoh sent heralds to the cities (to mobilise troops) فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ فِى ٱلْمَدَآئِنِ حَٰشِرِينَ ۝۵۳
saying: "These (Israelites) are only a small band of people إِنَّ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ لَشِرْذِمَةٌ قَلِيلُونَ ۝۵۴
who have certainly provoked our wrath. وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَآئِظُونَ ۝۵۵
But we are a numerous host, ever on guard." وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَٰذِرُونَ ۝۵۶
Thus did We drive them out of their gardens and springs فَأَخْرَجْنَٰهُم مِّن جَنَّٰتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ۝۵۷
and their treasures and excellent dwellings. وَكُنُوزٍ وَمَقَامٍ كَرِيمٍ ۝۵۸
This happened with them; (but on the other hand), We enabled the Children of Israel to inherit those bounties. كَذَٰلِكَ وَأَوْرَثْنَٰهَا بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ ۝۵۹
At sunrise they set off in pursuit of them فَأَتْبَعُوهُم مُّشْرِقِينَ ۝۶۰
and when the groups came face to face, the companions of Moses cried out: "We are overtaken!" فَلَمَّا تَرَٰٓءَا ٱلْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَٰبُ مُوسَىٰٓ إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ ۝۶۱
Moses said: "Certainly not. My Lord is with me; He will direct me." قَالَ كَلَّآ ۖ إِنَّ مَعِىَ رَبِّى سَيَهْدِينِ ۝۶۲
Then We revealed to Moses, (commanding him): "Strike the sea with your rod." Thereupon the sea split up, and then each became like the mass of a huge mount. فَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنِ ٱضْرِب بِّعَصَاكَ ٱلْبَحْرَ ۖ فَٱنفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍ كَٱلطَّوْدِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ ۝۶۳
We also brought the other party close to the same spot, وَأَزْلَفْنَا ثَمَّ ٱلْءَاخَرِينَ ۝۶۴
and We delivered Moses and his companions, all of them, وَأَنجَيْنَا مُوسَىٰ وَمَن مَّعَهُۥٓ أَجْمَعِينَ ۝۶۵
then We drowned the others. ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا ٱلْءَاخَرِينَ ۝۶۶
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۶۷
Verily your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Ever Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۶۸
And recount to them the story of Abraham: وَٱتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ ۝۶۹
when he asked his father and his people: "What do you worship?" إِذْ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوْمِهِۦ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ ۝۷۰
They answered: "There are some idols that we worship and are devoted to them with constancy." قَالُوا۟ نَعْبُدُ أَصْنَامًا فَنَظَلُّ لَهَا عَٰكِفِينَ ۝۷۱
He asked: "Do they hear you when you call them قَالَ هَلْ يَسْمَعُونَكُمْ إِذْ تَدْعُونَ ۝۷۲
or do they cause you any benefit or harm?" أَوْ يَنفَعُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَضُرُّونَ ۝۷۳
They answered: "No; but we found our forefathers doing so." قَالُوا۟ بَلْ وَجَدْنَآ ءَابَآءَنَا كَذَٰلِكَ يَفْعَلُونَ ۝۷۴
Thereupon, Abraham said: "Have you seen (with your eyes) those whom you have been worshipping, قَالَ أَفَرَءَيْتُم مَّا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ ۝۷۵
you and your forefathers of yore? أَنتُمْ وَءَابَآؤُكُمُ ٱلْأَقْدَمُونَ ۝۷۶
They are all enemies to me; all, except the Lord of the Universe فَإِنَّهُمْ عَدُوٌّ لِّىٓ إِلَّا رَبَّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۷۷
Who created me and Who guides me; ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَنِى فَهُوَ يَهْدِينِ ۝۷۸
Who gives me food and drink, وَٱلَّذِى هُوَ يُطْعِمُنِى وَيَسْقِينِ ۝۷۹
and Who, when I am ill, heals me; وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ ۝۸۰
Who will cause me to die and then will again restore me to life; وَٱلَّذِى يُمِيتُنِى ثُمَّ يُحْيِينِ ۝۸۱
Who, I hope, will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgement." وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَطْمَعُ أَن يَغْفِرَ لِى خَطِيٓـَٔتِى يَوْمَ ٱلدِّينِ ۝۸۲
(And then Abraham prayed): "My Lord, endow me with knowledge and wisdom and join me with the righteous, رَبِّ هَبْ لِى حُكْمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِى بِٱلصَّٰلِحِينَ ۝۸۳
and grant me an honourable reputation among posterity, وَٱجْعَل لِّى لِسَانَ صِدْقٍ فِى ٱلْءَاخِرِينَ ۝۸۴
and make me of those who will inherit the Garden of Bliss, وَٱجْعَلْنِى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ ۝۸۵
and forgive my father for he is among those who strayed, وَٱغْفِرْ لِأَبِىٓ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلضَّآلِّينَ ۝۸۶
and disgrace me not on the Day when people will be raised to life, وَلَا تُخْزِنِى يَوْمَ يُبْعَثُونَ ۝۸۷
the Day when nothing will avail, neither wealth nor offspring, يَوْمَ لَا يَنفَعُ مَالٌ وَلَا بَنُونَ ۝۸۸
but only he that brings to Allah a sound heart will (attain to success)." إِلَّا مَنْ أَتَى ٱللَّهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ ۝۸۹
(On that Day) the Garden will be brought near to the God-fearing, وَأُزْلِفَتِ ٱلْجَنَّةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ ۝۹۰
and the Fire will be uncovered for those who strayed, وَبُرِّزَتِ ٱلْجَحِيمُ لِلْغَاوِينَ ۝۹۱
and they will be asked: "Where are the gods that you worshipped وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ ۝۹۲
beside Allah? Can they be of any help to you, or even be of any help to themselves?" مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ هَلْ يَنصُرُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَنتَصِرُونَ ۝۹۳
Then the idols and those who strayed will be hurled into the Fire headlong, one upon another, فَكُبْكِبُوا۟ فِيهَا هُمْ وَٱلْغَاوُۥنَ ۝۹۴
and so too the hosts of Iblis, all of them. وَجُنُودُ إِبْلِيسَ أَجْمَعُونَ ۝۹۵
There they will quarrel with one another and the erring ones will say (to their deities): قَالُوا۟ وَهُمْ فِيهَا يَخْتَصِمُونَ ۝۹۶
"By Allah, we were surely in clear error تَٱللَّهِ إِن كُنَّا لَفِى ضَلَٰلٍ مُّبِينٍ ۝۹۷
when we assigned to you a position equal to that of the Lord of the Universe. إِذْ نُسَوِّيكُم بِرَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۹۸
It is none but those steeped in guilt who led us into this error, وَمَآ أَضَلَّنَآ إِلَّا ٱلْمُجْرِمُونَ ۝۹۹
and now we have none to intercede on our behalf, فَمَا لَنَا مِن شَٰفِعِينَ ۝۱۰۰
nor do we have a truly sincere friend. وَلَا صَدِيقٍ حَمِيمٍ ۝۱۰۱
If only we could return we would be among the believers." فَلَوْ أَنَّ لَنَا كَرَّةً فَنَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۰۲
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۰۳
Verily Your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Ever Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۰۴
The people of Noah gave the lie to the Messengers. كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۱۰۵
Recall when their brother Noah said to them: "Do you have no fear? إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ نُوحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۰۶
I am a trustworthy Messenger to you; إِنِّى لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ۝۱۰۷
so fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۰۸
I seek of you no reward for this: my reward is with none except the Lord of the Universe. وَمَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۰۹
So fear Allah and obey me." فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۱۰
They answered: "Shall we accept you even though it is the meanest of people who follow you?" قَالُوٓا۟ أَنُؤْمِنُ لَكَ وَٱتَّبَعَكَ ٱلْأَرْذَلُونَ ۝۱۱۱
Noah said: "What knowledge do I have about their deeds? قَالَ وَمَا عِلْمِى بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَعْمَلُونَ ۝۱۱۲
It is only for my Lord to take account of them. Would that you made use of your understanding! إِنْ حِسَابُهُمْ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّى ۖ لَوْ تَشْعُرُونَ ۝۱۱۳
It is not for me to repel those who choose to believe. وَمَآ أَنَا۠ بِطَارِدِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۱۴
I am none but a plain warner." إِنْ أَنَا۠ إِلَّا نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ ۝۱۱۵
They said: "O Noah! If you do not desist, you will certainly become one of the accursed." قَالُوا۟ لَئِن لَّمْ تَنتَهِ يَٰنُوحُ لَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلْمَرْجُومِينَ ۝۱۱۶
He said: "My Lord! My people have branded me a liar. قَالَ رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِى كَذَّبُونِ ۝۱۱۷
So pass a clear judgement between me and them and rescue me and the believers with me." فَٱفْتَحْ بَيْنِى وَبَيْنَهُمْ فَتْحًا وَنَجِّنِى وَمَن مَّعِىَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۱۸
Thereafter We rescued him and those who were with him in the laden Ark فَأَنجَيْنَٰهُ وَمَن مَّعَهُۥ فِى ٱلْفُلْكِ ٱلْمَشْحُونِ ۝۱۱۹
and drowned the rest. ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا بَعْدُ ٱلْبَاقِينَ ۝۱۲۰
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۲۱
Verily Your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Ever Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۲۲
The Ad gave the lie to the Messengers. كَذَّبَتْ عَادٌ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۱۲۳
Recall, when their brother Hud said to them: "Have you no fear? إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ هُودٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۲۴
I am a trustworthy Messenger to you. إِنِّى لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ۝۱۲۵
So fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۲۶
I seek of you no reward for this; my reward is with none but the Lord of the Universe. وَمَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۲۷
What, you build a monument on every hill merely for fun أَتَبْنُونَ بِكُلِّ رِيعٍ ءَايَةً تَعْبَثُونَ ۝۱۲۸
and erect huge palaces as though you will live for ever, وَتَتَّخِذُونَ مَصَانِعَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَخْلُدُونَ ۝۱۲۹
and when you strike you strike like tyrants? وَإِذَا بَطَشْتُم بَطَشْتُمْ جَبَّارِينَ ۝۱۳۰
So fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۳۱
Have fear of Him Who has provided you with all the (good) things you know; وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَمَدَّكُم بِمَا تَعْلَمُونَ ۝۱۳۲
Who has provided you with flocks and children أَمَدَّكُم بِأَنْعَٰمٍ وَبَنِينَ ۝۱۳۳
and with gardens and springs. وَجَنَّٰتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ۝۱۳۴
I fear for you the chastisement of an Awesome Day." إِنِّىٓ أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ۝۱۳۵
They replied: "It is all the same for us whether you admonish us or not. قَالُوا۟ سَوَآءٌ عَلَيْنَآ أَوَعَظْتَ أَمْ لَمْ تَكُن مِّنَ ٱلْوَٰعِظِينَ ۝۱۳۶
This has been happening all along. إِنْ هَٰذَآ إِلَّا خُلُقُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ ۝۱۳۷
We will not be subjected to any chastisement." وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمُعَذَّبِينَ ۝۱۳۸
Eventually they gave the lie to him and We destroyed them. Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَأَهْلَكْنَٰهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۳۹
Verily your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Most Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۴۰
The Thamud gave the lie to the Messengers. كَذَّبَتْ ثَمُودُ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۱۴۱
Recall when their brother Salih said to them: "Have you no fear?" إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ صَٰلِحٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۴۲
"I am a trustworthy Messenger to you. إِنِّى لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ۝۱۴۳
So fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۴۴
I ask of you no reward. My reward is with none but the Lord of the Universe. وَمَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۴۵
Do you believe that you will be left here to live securely in the present state أَتُتْرَكُونَ فِى مَا هَٰهُنَآ ءَامِنِينَ ۝۱۴۶
amidst gardens and springs فِى جَنَّٰتٍ وَعُيُونٍ ۝۱۴۷
and cornfields and date-palms laden with juicy fruits? وَزُرُوعٍ وَنَخْلٍ طَلْعُهَا هَضِيمٌ ۝۱۴۸
You hew dwellings in mountains and exult in that. وَتَنْحِتُونَ مِنَ ٱلْجِبَالِ بُيُوتًا فَٰرِهِينَ ۝۱۴۹
Fear Allah and obey me فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۵۰
and do not follow the biddings of those that go to excesses وَلَا تُطِيعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَ ٱلْمُسْرِفِينَ ۝۱۵۱
and spread mischief in the land rather than set things right." ٱلَّذِينَ يُفْسِدُونَ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَا يُصْلِحُونَ ۝۱۵۲
They replied: "You are nothing but one of those who are bewitched; قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّمَآ أَنتَ مِنَ ٱلْمُسَحَّرِينَ ۝۱۵۳
you are no different from a mortal like us. So produce a sign if you are truthful." مَآ أَنتَ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا فَأْتِ بِـَٔايَةٍ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ ۝۱۵۴
Salih said: "This is a she-camel. There is a day set for her to drink and there is a day set for you to drink. قَالَ هَٰذِهِۦ نَاقَةٌ لَّهَا شِرْبٌ وَلَكُمْ شِرْبُ يَوْمٍ مَّعْلُومٍ ۝۱۵۵
Do not molest her lest the chastisement of an Awesome Day should seize you." وَلَا تَمَسُّوهَا بِسُوٓءٍ فَيَأْخُذَكُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ۝۱۵۶
But they hamstrung her and then regretted it. فَعَقَرُوهَا فَأَصْبَحُوا۟ نَٰدِمِينَ ۝۱۵۷
So the chastisement seized them. Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. فَأَخَذَهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ ۗ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۵۸
Verily Your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Most Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۵۹
The people of Lot rejected the Messengers, branding them liars. كَذَّبَتْ قَوْمُ لُوطٍ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۱۶۰
Recall, when their brother Lot said to them: "Have you no fear? إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ أَخُوهُمْ لُوطٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۶۱
I am a trustworthy Messenger to you. إِنِّى لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ۝۱۶۲
So fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۶۳
I seek of you no reward. My reward is with none but the Lord of the Universe. وَمَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۶۴
What, of all creation will you go to (fornicate with) the males, أَتَأْتُونَ ٱلذُّكْرَانَ مِنَ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۶۵
leaving aside those whom Allah has created for you as your mates. Nay, you are a people that has transgressed all limits." وَتَذَرُونَ مَا خَلَقَ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُم مِّنْ أَزْوَٰجِكُم ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ عَادُونَ ۝۱۶۶
They said: "O Lot! If you do not desist, you will be one of those expelled (from our towns)." قَالُوا۟ لَئِن لَّمْ تَنتَهِ يَٰلُوطُ لَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلْمُخْرَجِينَ ۝۱۶۷
He said: "I am one of those who abhor your practice. قَالَ إِنِّى لِعَمَلِكُم مِّنَ ٱلْقَالِينَ ۝۱۶۸
My Lord, deliver me and my family from their wicked deeds." رَبِّ نَجِّنِى وَأَهْلِى مِمَّا يَعْمَلُونَ ۝۱۶۹
Then We delivered him and all his family فَنَجَّيْنَٰهُ وَأَهْلَهُۥٓ أَجْمَعِينَ ۝۱۷۰
except an old woman who was among those that stayed behind. إِلَّا عَجُوزًا فِى ٱلْغَٰبِرِينَ ۝۱۷۱
Thereafter, We utterly destroyed the rest, ثُمَّ دَمَّرْنَا ٱلْءَاخَرِينَ ۝۱۷۲
and We sent upon them a rain, an evil rain that fell on those who had been warned. وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِم مَّطَرًا ۖ فَسَآءَ مَطَرُ ٱلْمُنذَرِينَ ۝۱۷۳
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۷۴
Verily Your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Most Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۷۵
The people of Aykah also gave the lie to the Messengers. كَذَّبَ أَصْحَٰبُ لْـَٔيْكَةِ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ ۝۱۷۶
Recall, when Shuayb said to them: "Have you no fear? إِذْ قَالَ لَهُمْ شُعَيْبٌ أَلَا تَتَّقُونَ ۝۱۷۷
I am a trustworthy Messenger to you. إِنِّى لَكُمْ رَسُولٌ أَمِينٌ ۝۱۷۸
So fear Allah and obey me. فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ ۝۱۷۹
I ask of you no reward for this. My reward is with none but the Lord of the Universe. وَمَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أَجْرٍ ۖ إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَىٰ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۸۰
Fill up the measure and do not diminish the goods of people, أَوْفُوا۟ ٱلْكَيْلَ وَلَا تَكُونُوا۟ مِنَ ٱلْمُخْسِرِينَ ۝۱۸۱
weigh with an even balance وَزِنُوا۟ بِٱلْقِسْطَاسِ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمِ ۝۱۸۲
and do not deliver short, and do not go about creating mischief in the land, وَلَا تَبْخَسُوا۟ ٱلنَّاسَ أَشْيَآءَهُمْ وَلَا تَعْثَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ ۝۱۸۳
and have fear of Him Who created you and the earlier generations." وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ وَٱلْجِبِلَّةَ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ ۝۱۸۴
They said: "You are no more than one of those who have been bewitched, قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّمَآ أَنتَ مِنَ ٱلْمُسَحَّرِينَ ۝۱۸۵
you are only a mortal like us. Indeed we believe that you are an utter liar. وَمَآ أَنتَ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُنَا وَإِن نَّظُنُّكَ لَمِنَ ٱلْكَٰذِبِينَ ۝۱۸۶
So cause a piece of the sky to fall upon us if you are truthful." فَأَسْقِطْ عَلَيْنَا كِسَفًا مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰدِقِينَ ۝۱۸۷
Shuayb said: "My Lord knows well all what you do." قَالَ رَبِّىٓ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ ۝۱۸۸
Then they branded him a liar, whereupon the chastisement of the Day of Canopy overtook them. It was the chastisement of a very awesome day. فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَأَخَذَهُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمِ ٱلظُّلَّةِ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ ۝۱۸۹
Surely there is a Sign in this, but most of them would not believe. إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۹۰
Verily Your Lord is Immensely Mighty, Most Compassionate. وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ ۝۱۹۱
Indeed this is a revelation from the Lord of the Universe; وَإِنَّهُۥ لَتَنزِيلُ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ ۝۱۹۲
which the truthful spirit has carried down نَزَلَ بِهِ ٱلرُّوحُ ٱلْأَمِينُ ۝۱۹۳
to your heart that you might become one of those who warn (others on behalf of Allah), عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ لِتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُنذِرِينَ ۝۱۹۴
(a revelation) in clear Arabic language, بِلِسَانٍ عَرَبِىٍّ مُّبِينٍ ۝۱۹۵
(a revelation embodied) in the scriptures of the ancients. وَإِنَّهُۥ لَفِى زُبُرِ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ ۝۱۹۶
Is it not a Sign to them - (to wit, the Makkans) - that the learned men of the Children of Israel know that? أَوَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُمْ ءَايَةً أَن يَعْلَمَهُۥ عُلَمَٰٓؤُا۟ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ ۝۱۹۷
(But such is their adamance) that had We revealed it to one of the non-Arabs and even if he had recited (this clear Arabic discourse) to them وَلَوْ نَزَّلْنَٰهُ عَلَىٰ بَعْضِ ٱلْأَعْجَمِينَ ۝۱۹۸
they would still not have believed in it. فَقَرَأَهُۥ عَلَيْهِم مَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ مُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۱۹۹
Thus have We caused this (Admonition) to penetrate the hearts of the culprits (like a hot rod). كَذَٰلِكَ سَلَكْنَٰهُ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ ۝۲۰۰
They will not believe in it until they clearly see the grievous chastisement. لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِۦ حَتَّىٰ يَرَوُا۟ ٱلْعَذَابَ ٱلْأَلِيمَ ۝۲۰۱
But when it comes upon them suddenly, taking them unawares, فَيَأْتِيَهُم بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ ۝۲۰۲
they say: "Can we be granted some respite?" فَيَقُولُوا۟ هَلْ نَحْنُ مُنظَرُونَ ۝۲۰۳
Do they really want Our chastisement to be expedited? أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونَ ۝۲۰۴
Did you consider that if We were to let them enjoy life for many years أَفَرَءَيْتَ إِن مَّتَّعْنَٰهُمْ سِنِينَ ۝۲۰۵
and then the chastisement of which they were being warned were to come upon them, ثُمَّ جَآءَهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُوعَدُونَ ۝۲۰۶
of what avail will be the provisions of life which they have been granted to enjoy? مَآ أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُمَتَّعُونَ ۝۲۰۷
We never destroyed any habitation but that it had warners وَمَآ أَهْلَكْنَا مِن قَرْيَةٍ إِلَّا لَهَا مُنذِرُونَ ۝۲۰۸
to admonish them. We have never been unjust. ذِكْرَىٰ وَمَا كُنَّا ظَٰلِمِينَ ۝۲۰۹
The satans did not bring down this (Clear Book), وَمَا تَنَزَّلَتْ بِهِ ٱلشَّيَٰطِينُ ۝۲۱۰
nor does it behove them, nor does it lie in their power. وَمَا يَنۢبَغِى لَهُمْ وَمَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ ۝۲۱۱
Indeed they are debarred from even hearing it. إِنَّهُمْ عَنِ ٱلسَّمْعِ لَمَعْزُولُونَ ۝۲۱۲
So do not call any other god beside Allah lest you become of those who will be punished, فَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا ءَاخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُعَذَّبِينَ ۝۲۱۳
and warn your nearest kinsmen; وَأَنذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ ٱلْأَقْرَبِينَ ۝۲۱۴
and be meek to the believers who follow you. وَٱخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۝۲۱۵
Then if they disobey you say to them: "I am quit of what you do." فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّى بَرِىٓءٌ مِّمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ ۝۲۱۶
And put your trust in Him Who is Immensely Mighty, Most Compassionate, وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ۝۲۱۷
Who observes you when you rise (to pray) ٱلَّذِى يَرَىٰكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ ۝۲۱۸
and observes your movements among those who prostrate themselves. وَتَقَلُّبَكَ فِى ٱلسَّٰجِدِينَ ۝۲۱۹
He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ ۝۲۲۰
O people, shall I tell you on whom it is that satans descend? هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ عَلَىٰ مَن تَنَزَّلُ ٱلشَّيَٰطِينُ ۝۲۲۱
They descend on every forgerer steeped in sin, تَنَزَّلُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍ ۝۲۲۲
on those who whisper hearsay in the ears of people; and most of them are liars. يُلْقُونَ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ كَٰذِبُونَ ۝۲۲۳
As for poets, only the wayward follow them. وَٱلشُّعَرَآءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ ٱلْغَاوُۥنَ ۝۲۲۴
Do you not see that they wander about in every valley أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّهُمْ فِى كُلِّ وَادٍ يَهِيمُونَ ۝۲۲۵
and say things which they do not act upon, وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لَا يَفْعَلُونَ ۝۲۲۶
except those who believed and acted righteously and remembered Allah much, and when they themselves were subjected to wrong, they exacted retribution no more than to the extent of the wrong? Soon will the wrong-doers know the end that they shall reach. إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ وَذَكَرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَٱنتَصَرُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُوا۟ ۗ وَسَيَعْلَمُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ أَىَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ ۝۲۲۷
