بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ اقتَرَبَ لِلنّاسِ حِسابُهُم وَهُم فى غَفلَةٍ مُعرِضونَ(1)
Nigh unto men has drawn their reckoning, while they in heedlessness are yet turning away;(1)
ما يَأتيهِم مِن ذِكرٍ مِن رَبِّهِم مُحدَثٍ إِلَّا استَمَعوهُ وَهُم يَلعَبونَ(2)
no Remembrance from their Lord comes to them lately renewed, but they listen to it yet playing,(2)
لاهِيَةً قُلوبُهُم ۗ وَأَسَرُّوا النَّجوَى الَّذينَ ظَلَموا هَل هٰذا إِلّا بَشَرٌ مِثلُكُم ۖ أَفَتَأتونَ السِّحرَ وَأَنتُم تُبصِرونَ(3)
diverted their hearts. The evildoers whisper one to another, 'Is this aught but a mortal like to yourselves? What, will you take to sorcery with your eyes open?'(3)
قالَ رَبّى يَعلَمُ القَولَ فِى السَّماءِ وَالأَرضِ ۖ وَهُوَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ(4)
He says: 'My Lord knows what is said in the heavens and the earth, and He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.'(4)
بَل قالوا أَضغٰثُ أَحلٰمٍ بَلِ افتَرىٰهُ بَل هُوَ شاعِرٌ فَليَأتِنا بِـٔايَةٍ كَما أُرسِلَ الأَوَّلونَ(5)
Nay, but they say: 'A hotchpotch of nightmares! Nay, he has forged it; nay, he is a poet! Now therefore let him bring us a sign, even as the ancient ones were sent as Messengers.'(5)
ما ءامَنَت قَبلَهُم مِن قَريَةٍ أَهلَكنٰها ۖ أَفَهُم يُؤمِنونَ(6)
Not one city that We destroyed before them believed; what then, will they not believe?(6)
وَما أَرسَلنا قَبلَكَ إِلّا رِجالًا نوحى إِلَيهِم ۖ فَسـَٔلوا أَهلَ الذِّكرِ إِن كُنتُم لا تَعلَمونَ(7)
And We sent none before thee, but men to whom We made revelation -- question the People of the Remembrance, if you do not know --(7)
وَما جَعَلنٰهُم جَسَدًا لا يَأكُلونَ الطَّعامَ وَما كانوا خٰلِدينَ(8)
nor did We fashion them as bodies that ate not food, neither were they immortal;(8)
ثُمَّ صَدَقنٰهُمُ الوَعدَ فَأَنجَينٰهُم وَمَن نَشاءُ وَأَهلَكنَا المُسرِفينَ(9)
then We made true the promise We gave them and We delivered them, and whomsoever We would; and We destroyed the prodigal.(9)
لَقَد أَنزَلنا إِلَيكُم كِتٰبًا فيهِ ذِكرُكُم ۖ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ(10)
Now We have sent down to you a Book wherein is your Remembrance; will you not understand?(10)
وَكَم قَصَمنا مِن قَريَةٍ كانَت ظالِمَةً وَأَنشَأنا بَعدَها قَومًا ءاخَرينَ(11)
How many a city that was evildoing We have shattered, and set up after it another people!(11)
فَلَمّا أَحَسّوا بَأسَنا إِذا هُم مِنها يَركُضونَ(12)
Then, when they perceived Our might, behold, they ran headlong out of it.(12)
لا تَركُضوا وَارجِعوا إِلىٰ ما أُترِفتُم فيهِ وَمَسٰكِنِكُم لَعَلَّكُم تُسـَٔلونَ(13)
'Run not! Return you unto the luxury that you exulted in, and your dwelling-places; haply you shall be questioned.'(13)
قالوا يٰوَيلَنا إِنّا كُنّا ظٰلِمينَ(14)
They said, 'Alas for us! We have been evildoers.'(14)
فَما زالَت تِلكَ دَعوىٰهُم حَتّىٰ جَعَلنٰهُم حَصيدًا خٰمِدينَ(15)
So they ceased not to cry, until We made them stubble, silent and still.(15)
وَما خَلَقنَا السَّماءَ وَالأَرضَ وَما بَينَهُما لٰعِبينَ(16)
We created not the heaven and the earth, and whatsoever between them is, as playing;(16)
لَو أَرَدنا أَن نَتَّخِذَ لَهوًا لَاتَّخَذنٰهُ مِن لَدُنّا إِن كُنّا فٰعِلينَ(17)
had We desired to take to Us a diversion We would have taken it to Us from Ourselves, had We done aught.(17)
بَل نَقذِفُ بِالحَقِّ عَلَى البٰطِلِ فَيَدمَغُهُ فَإِذا هُوَ زاهِقٌ ۚ وَلَكُمُ الوَيلُ مِمّا تَصِفونَ(18)
Nay, but We hurl the truth against falsehood and it prevails over it, and behold, falsehood vanishes away. Then woe to you for that you describe!(18)
وَلَهُ مَن فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ وَمَن عِندَهُ لا يَستَكبِرونَ عَن عِبادَتِهِ وَلا يَستَحسِرونَ(19)
To Him belongs whosoever is in the heavens and the earth; and those who are with Him wax not too proud to do Him service neither grow weary,(19)
يُسَبِّحونَ الَّيلَ وَالنَّهارَ لا يَفتُرونَ(20)
glorifying Him by night and in the daytime and never failing.(20)
أَمِ اتَّخَذوا ءالِهَةً مِنَ الأَرضِ هُم يُنشِرونَ(21)
Or have they taken gods out of the earth who raise the dead?(21)
لَو كانَ فيهِما ءالِهَةٌ إِلَّا اللَّهُ لَفَسَدَتا ۚ فَسُبحٰنَ اللَّهِ رَبِّ العَرشِ عَمّا يَصِفونَ(22)
Why, were there gods in earth and heaven other than God, they would surely go to ruin; so glory be to God, the Lord of the Throne, above that they describe!(22)
لا يُسـَٔلُ عَمّا يَفعَلُ وَهُم يُسـَٔلونَ(23)
He shall not be questioned as to what He does, but they shall he questioned.(23)
أَمِ اتَّخَذوا مِن دونِهِ ءالِهَةً ۖ قُل هاتوا بُرهٰنَكُم ۖ هٰذا ذِكرُ مَن مَعِىَ وَذِكرُ مَن قَبلى ۗ بَل أَكثَرُهُم لا يَعلَمونَ الحَقَّ ۖ فَهُم مُعرِضونَ(24)
Or have they taken gods apart from Him? Say: 'Bring your proof! This is the Remembrance of him who is with me, and the Remembrance of those before me. Nay, but the most part of them know not the truth, so therefore they are turning away.(24)
وَما أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ مِن رَسولٍ إِلّا نوحى إِلَيهِ أَنَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا أَنا۠ فَاعبُدونِ(25)
And We sent never a Messenger before thee except that We revealed to him, saying, 'There is no god but I; so serve Me.'(25)
وَقالُوا اتَّخَذَ الرَّحمٰنُ وَلَدًا ۗ سُبحٰنَهُ ۚ بَل عِبادٌ مُكرَمونَ(26)
They say:' 'The All-merciful has taken to Him a son.' Glory be to Him! Nay, but they are honoured servants(26)
لا يَسبِقونَهُ بِالقَولِ وَهُم بِأَمرِهِ يَعمَلونَ(27)
that outstrip Him not in speech, and perform as He commands.(27)
يَعلَمُ ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم وَلا يَشفَعونَ إِلّا لِمَنِ ارتَضىٰ وَهُم مِن خَشيَتِهِ مُشفِقونَ(28)
He knows what is before them and behind them, and they intercede not save for him with whom He is well-pleased, and they tremble in awe of Him.(28)
۞ وَمَن يَقُل مِنهُم إِنّى إِلٰهٌ مِن دونِهِ فَذٰلِكَ نَجزيهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى الظّٰلِمينَ(29)
If any of them says, 'I am a god apart from Him', such a one We recompense with Gehenna; even so We recompense the evildoers.(29)
أَوَلَم يَرَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا أَنَّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ كانَتا رَتقًا فَفَتَقنٰهُما ۖ وَجَعَلنا مِنَ الماءِ كُلَّ شَيءٍ حَىٍّ ۖ أَفَلا يُؤمِنونَ(30)
Have not the unbelievers then beheld that the heavens and the earth were a mass all sewn up, and then We unstitched them and of water fashioned every living thing? Will they not believe?(30)
وَجَعَلنا فِى الأَرضِ رَوٰسِىَ أَن تَميدَ بِهِم وَجَعَلنا فيها فِجاجًا سُبُلًا لَعَلَّهُم يَهتَدونَ(31)
And We set in the earth firm mountains lest it should shake with them, and We set in it ravines to serve as ways, that haply so they may be guided;(31)
وَجَعَلنَا السَّماءَ سَقفًا مَحفوظًا ۖ وَهُم عَن ءايٰتِها مُعرِضونَ(32)
and We set up the heaven as a roof well-protected; yet still from Our signs they are turning away.(32)
وَهُوَ الَّذى خَلَقَ الَّيلَ وَالنَّهارَ وَالشَّمسَ وَالقَمَرَ ۖ كُلٌّ فى فَلَكٍ يَسبَحونَ(33)
It is He who created the night and the day, the sun and the moon, each swimming in a sky.(33)
وَما جَعَلنا لِبَشَرٍ مِن قَبلِكَ الخُلدَ ۖ أَفَإِي۟ن مِتَّ فَهُمُ الخٰلِدونَ(34)
We have not assigned to any mortal before thee to live forever; therefore, if thou diest, will they live forever?(34)
كُلُّ نَفسٍ ذائِقَةُ المَوتِ ۗ وَنَبلوكُم بِالشَّرِّ وَالخَيرِ فِتنَةً ۖ وَإِلَينا تُرجَعونَ(35)
Every soul shall taste of death; and We try you with evil and good for a testing, then unto Us you shall be returned.(35)
وَإِذا رَءاكَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا إِن يَتَّخِذونَكَ إِلّا هُزُوًا أَهٰذَا الَّذى يَذكُرُ ءالِهَتَكُم وَهُم بِذِكرِ الرَّحمٰنِ هُم كٰفِرونَ(36)
When the unbelievers behold thee, they take thee only for mockery: 'Ha, is this the one who makes mention of your gods?' Yet they in the Remembrance of the All-merciful are unbelievers.(36)
خُلِقَ الإِنسٰنُ مِن عَجَلٍ ۚ سَأُو۟ريكُم ءايٰتى فَلا تَستَعجِلونِ(37)
Man was created of haste. Assuredly I shall show you My signs; so demand not that I make haste.(37)
وَيَقولونَ مَتىٰ هٰذَا الوَعدُ إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(38)
They say, 'And when shall the promise come to pass, if you speak truly?'(38)
لَو يَعلَمُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا حينَ لا يَكُفّونَ عَن وُجوهِهِمُ النّارَ وَلا عَن ظُهورِهِم وَلا هُم يُنصَرونَ(39)
If the unbelievers but knew when that they shall not ward off the Fire from their faces nor from their backs, neither shall they be helped!(39)
بَل تَأتيهِم بَغتَةً فَتَبهَتُهُم فَلا يَستَطيعونَ رَدَّها وَلا هُم يُنظَرونَ(40)
Nay, but it shall come upon them suddenly, dumbfounding them, and they shall not be able to repel it, nor shall they be respited.(40)
وَلَقَدِ استُهزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِن قَبلِكَ فَحاقَ بِالَّذينَ سَخِروا مِنهُم ما كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(41)
Messengers indeed were mocked at before thee, but those that scoffed at them were encompassed by that they mocked at.(41)
قُل مَن يَكلَؤُكُم بِالَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ مِنَ الرَّحمٰنِ ۗ بَل هُم عَن ذِكرِ رَبِّهِم مُعرِضونَ(42)
Say: 'Who shall guard you by night and in the daytime from the All-merciful?' Nay, but from the Remembrance of their Lord they are turning away.(42)
أَم لَهُم ءالِهَةٌ تَمنَعُهُم مِن دونِنا ۚ لا يَستَطيعونَ نَصرَ أَنفُسِهِم وَلا هُم مِنّا يُصحَبونَ(43)
Or have they gods that shall defend them apart from Us? Why, they are not able to help themselves, nor shall they be guarded in safety from Us.(43)
بَل مَتَّعنا هٰؤُلاءِ وَءاباءَهُم حَتّىٰ طالَ عَلَيهِمُ العُمُرُ ۗ أَفَلا يَرَونَ أَنّا نَأتِى الأَرضَ نَنقُصُها مِن أَطرافِها ۚ أَفَهُمُ الغٰلِبونَ(44)
Nay, but Ourselves gave these and their fathers enjoyment of days, until their life had lasted long while upon them. What, do they not see how We come to the land, diminishing it in its extremities? Or are they the victors?(44)
قُل إِنَّما أُنذِرُكُم بِالوَحىِ ۚ وَلا يَسمَعُ الصُّمُّ الدُّعاءَ إِذا ما يُنذَرونَ(45)
Say: 'I warn you only by the Revelation'; but they that are deaf do not hear the call when they are warned.(45)
وَلَئِن مَسَّتهُم نَفحَةٌ مِن عَذابِ رَبِّكَ لَيَقولُنَّ يٰوَيلَنا إِنّا كُنّا ظٰلِمينَ(46)
If but a breath of thy Lord's chastisement touched them, they would surely say, 'Alas for us! We were evildoers.'(46)
وَنَضَعُ المَوٰزينَ القِسطَ لِيَومِ القِيٰمَةِ فَلا تُظلَمُ نَفسٌ شَيـًٔا ۖ وَإِن كانَ مِثقالَ حَبَّةٍ مِن خَردَلٍ أَتَينا بِها ۗ وَكَفىٰ بِنا حٰسِبينَ(47)
And We shall set up the just balances for the Resurrection Day, so that not one soul shall be wronged anything; even if it be the weight of one grain of mustard-seed We shall produce it, and sufficient are We for reckoners.(47)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا موسىٰ وَهٰرونَ الفُرقانَ وَضِياءً وَذِكرًا لِلمُتَّقينَ(48)
We gave Moses and Aaron the Salvation and a Radiance, and a Remembrance for the godfearing(48)
الَّذينَ يَخشَونَ رَبَّهُم بِالغَيبِ وَهُم مِنَ السّاعَةِ مُشفِقونَ(49)
such as fear God in the Unseen, trembling because of the Hour.(49)
وَهٰذا ذِكرٌ مُبارَكٌ أَنزَلنٰهُ ۚ أَفَأَنتُم لَهُ مُنكِرونَ(50)
And this is a blessed Remembrance that We have sent down; so are you now denying it?(50)
۞ وَلَقَد ءاتَينا إِبرٰهيمَ رُشدَهُ مِن قَبلُ وَكُنّا بِهِ عٰلِمينَ(51)
We gave Abraham aforetime his rectitude -- for We knew him --(51)
إِذ قالَ لِأَبيهِ وَقَومِهِ ما هٰذِهِ التَّماثيلُ الَّتى أَنتُم لَها عٰكِفونَ(52)
when he said to his father and his people, 'What are these statues unto which you are cleaving?'(52)
قالوا وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا لَها عٰبِدينَ(53)
They said, 'We found our fathers serving them.'(53)
قالَ لَقَد كُنتُم أَنتُم وَءاباؤُكُم فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(54)
He said, 'Then assuredly you and your fathers have been in manifest error.'(54)
قالوا أَجِئتَنا بِالحَقِّ أَم أَنتَ مِنَ اللّٰعِبينَ(55)
They said, 'What, hast thou come to us with the truth, or art thou one of those that play?'(55)
قالَ بَل رَبُّكُم رَبُّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ الَّذى فَطَرَهُنَّ وَأَنا۠ عَلىٰ ذٰلِكُم مِنَ الشّٰهِدينَ(56)
He said, 'Nay, but your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth who originated them, and I am one of those that bear witness thereunto.(56)
وَتَاللَّهِ لَأَكيدَنَّ أَصنٰمَكُم بَعدَ أَن تُوَلّوا مُدبِرينَ(57)
And, by God, I shall assuredly outwit your idols, after you have gone away turning your backs.'(57)
فَجَعَلَهُم جُذٰذًا إِلّا كَبيرًا لَهُم لَعَلَّهُم إِلَيهِ يَرجِعونَ(58)
So he broke them into fragments, all but a great one they had, for haply they would return to it.(58)
قالوا مَن فَعَلَ هٰذا بِـٔالِهَتِنا إِنَّهُ لَمِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ(59)
They said, 'Who has. done this with our gods? Surely he is one of the evildoers.'(59)
قالوا سَمِعنا فَتًى يَذكُرُهُم يُقالُ لَهُ إِبرٰهيمُ(60)
They said, 'We heard a young man making mention of them, and he was called Abraham.'(60)
قالوا فَأتوا بِهِ عَلىٰ أَعيُنِ النّاسِ لَعَلَّهُم يَشهَدونَ(61)
They said, 'Bring him before the people's eyes; haply they shall bear witness.'(61)
قالوا ءَأَنتَ فَعَلتَ هٰذا بِـٔالِهَتِنا يٰإِبرٰهيمُ(62)
They said, 'So, art thou the man who did this unto our gods, Abraham?'(62)
قالَ بَل فَعَلَهُ كَبيرُهُم هٰذا فَسـَٔلوهُم إِن كانوا يَنطِقونَ(63)
He said, 'No; it was this great one of them that did it. Question them; if they are able to speak!'(63)
فَرَجَعوا إِلىٰ أَنفُسِهِم فَقالوا إِنَّكُم أَنتُمُ الظّٰلِمونَ(64)
So they returned one to another, and they said, 'Surely it is you who are the evildoers.'(64)
ثُمَّ نُكِسوا عَلىٰ رُءوسِهِم لَقَد عَلِمتَ ما هٰؤُلاءِ يَنطِقونَ(65)
Then they were utterly put to confusion saying, 'Very well indeed thou knowest these do not speak.'(65)
قالَ أَفَتَعبُدونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ما لا يَنفَعُكُم شَيـًٔا وَلا يَضُرُّكُم(66)
He said, 'What, and do you serve, apart from God, that which profits you nothing; neither hurts you?(66)
أُفٍّ لَكُم وَلِما تَعبُدونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ۖ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ(67)
Fie upon you and that you serve apart from God! Do you not understand?'(67)
قالوا حَرِّقوهُ وَانصُروا ءالِهَتَكُم إِن كُنتُم فٰعِلينَ(68)
They said, 'Burn him, and help your gods, if you would do aught.'(68)
قُلنا يٰنارُ كونى بَردًا وَسَلٰمًا عَلىٰ إِبرٰهيمَ(69)
We said, 'O fire, be coolness and safety for Abraham!'(69)
وَأَرادوا بِهِ كَيدًا فَجَعَلنٰهُمُ الأَخسَرينَ(70)
They desired to outwit him; so We made them the worse losers,(70)
وَنَجَّينٰهُ وَلوطًا إِلَى الأَرضِ الَّتى بٰرَكنا فيها لِلعٰلَمينَ(71)
and We delivered him, and Lot, unto the land that We had blessed for all beings.(71)
وَوَهَبنا لَهُ إِسحٰقَ وَيَعقوبَ نافِلَةً ۖ وَكُلًّا جَعَلنا صٰلِحينَ(72)
And We gave him Isaac and Jacob in superfluity, and every one made We righteous(72)
وَجَعَلنٰهُم أَئِمَّةً يَهدونَ بِأَمرِنا وَأَوحَينا إِلَيهِم فِعلَ الخَيرٰتِ وَإِقامَ الصَّلوٰةِ وَإيتاءَ الزَّكوٰةِ ۖ وَكانوا لَنا عٰبِدينَ(73)
and appointed them to be leaders guiding by Our command, and We revealed to them the doing of good deeds, and to perform the prayer, and to pay the alms, and Us they served.(73)
وَلوطًا ءاتَينٰهُ حُكمًا وَعِلمًا وَنَجَّينٰهُ مِنَ القَريَةِ الَّتى كانَت تَعمَلُ الخَبٰئِثَ ۗ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومَ سَوءٍ فٰسِقينَ(74)
And Lot -- to him We gave judgment and knowledge; and we delivered him from the city that had been doing deeds of corruption; they were an evil people, truly ungodly;(74)
وَأَدخَلنٰهُ فى رَحمَتِنا ۖ إِنَّهُ مِنَ الصّٰلِحينَ(75)
and We admitted him into Our mercy; he was of the righteous.(75)
وَنوحًا إِذ نادىٰ مِن قَبلُ فَاستَجَبنا لَهُ فَنَجَّينٰهُ وَأَهلَهُ مِنَ الكَربِ العَظيمِ(76)
And Noah -- when he called before, and We answered him, and delivered him and his people from the great distress,(76)
وَنَصَرنٰهُ مِنَ القَومِ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومَ سَوءٍ فَأَغرَقنٰهُم أَجمَعينَ(77)
and We helped him against the people who cried lies to Our signs; surely they were an evil people, so We drowned them all together.(77)
وَداوۥدَ وَسُلَيمٰنَ إِذ يَحكُمانِ فِى الحَرثِ إِذ نَفَشَت فيهِ غَنَمُ القَومِ وَكُنّا لِحُكمِهِم شٰهِدينَ(78)
And David and Solomon -- when they gave judgment concerning the tillage, when the sheep of the people strayed there, and We bore witness to their judgment;(78)
فَفَهَّمنٰها سُلَيمٰنَ ۚ وَكُلًّا ءاتَينا حُكمًا وَعِلمًا ۚ وَسَخَّرنا مَعَ داوۥدَ الجِبالَ يُسَبِّحنَ وَالطَّيرَ ۚ وَكُنّا فٰعِلينَ(79)
and We made Solomon to understand it, and unto each gave We judgment and knowledge. And with David We subjected the mountains to give glory, and the birds, and We were doers.(79)
وَعَلَّمنٰهُ صَنعَةَ لَبوسٍ لَكُم لِتُحصِنَكُم مِن بَأسِكُم ۖ فَهَل أَنتُم شٰكِرونَ(80)
And We taught him the fashioning of garments for you, to fortify you against your violence; then are you thankful?(80)
وَلِسُلَيمٰنَ الرّيحَ عاصِفَةً تَجرى بِأَمرِهِ إِلَى الأَرضِ الَّتى بٰرَكنا فيها ۚ وَكُنّا بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عٰلِمينَ(81)
And to Solomon the wind, strongly blowing, that ran at his command unto the land that We had blessed; and We had knowledge of everything;(81)
وَمِنَ الشَّيٰطينِ مَن يَغوصونَ لَهُ وَيَعمَلونَ عَمَلًا دونَ ذٰلِكَ ۖ وَكُنّا لَهُم حٰفِظينَ(82)
and of the Satans some dived for him and did other work besides; and We were watching over them.(82)
۞ وَأَيّوبَ إِذ نادىٰ رَبَّهُ أَنّى مَسَّنِىَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنتَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(83)
And Job -- when he called unto his Lord, 'Behold, affliction has visited me, and Thou art the most merciful of the merciful.'(83)
فَاستَجَبنا لَهُ فَكَشَفنا ما بِهِ مِن ضُرٍّ ۖ وَءاتَينٰهُ أَهلَهُ وَمِثلَهُم مَعَهُم رَحمَةً مِن عِندِنا وَذِكرىٰ لِلعٰبِدينَ(84)
So We answered him, and removed the affliction that was upon him, and We gave his people, and the like of them with them, mercy from Us, and a Reminder to those who serve.(84)
وَإِسمٰعيلَ وَإِدريسَ وَذَا الكِفلِ ۖ كُلٌّ مِنَ الصّٰبِرينَ(85)
And Ishmael, Idris, Dhul Kifl -- each was of the patient,(85)
وَأَدخَلنٰهُم فى رَحمَتِنا ۖ إِنَّهُم مِنَ الصّٰلِحينَ(86)
and We admitted them into Our mercy; they were of the righteous.(86)
وَذَا النّونِ إِذ ذَهَبَ مُغٰضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَن لَن نَقدِرَ عَلَيهِ فَنادىٰ فِى الظُّلُمٰتِ أَن لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا أَنتَ سُبحٰنَكَ إِنّى كُنتُ مِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ(87)
And Dhul Nun -- when he went forth enraged and thought that We would have no power over him; then he called out in the darkness, 'There is no god but Thou. Glory be to Thee! I have done evil.'(87)
فَاستَجَبنا لَهُ وَنَجَّينٰهُ مِنَ الغَمِّ ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نُۨجِى المُؤمِنينَ(88)
So We answered him, and delivered him out of grief; even so do, We deliver the believers.(88)
وَزَكَرِيّا إِذ نادىٰ رَبَّهُ رَبِّ لا تَذَرنى فَردًا وَأَنتَ خَيرُ الوٰرِثينَ(89)
And Zachariah -- when he called unto his Lord, 'O my Lord, leave me not solitary; though Thou art the best of inheritors.'(89)
فَاستَجَبنا لَهُ وَوَهَبنا لَهُ يَحيىٰ وَأَصلَحنا لَهُ زَوجَهُ ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا يُسٰرِعونَ فِى الخَيرٰتِ وَيَدعونَنا رَغَبًا وَرَهَبًا ۖ وَكانوا لَنا خٰشِعينَ(90)
So We answered him, and bestowed on him John, and We set his wife right for him; truly they vied with one another, hastening to good works, and called upon Us out of yearning and awe; and they were humble to Us.(90)
وَالَّتى أَحصَنَت فَرجَها فَنَفَخنا فيها مِن روحِنا وَجَعَلنٰها وَابنَها ءايَةً لِلعٰلَمينَ(91)
And she who guarded her virginity, so We breathed into her of Our spirit and appointed her and her son to be a sign unto all beings.(91)
إِنَّ هٰذِهِ أُمَّتُكُم أُمَّةً وٰحِدَةً وَأَنا۠ رَبُّكُم فَاعبُدونِ(92)
'Surely this community of yours is one community, and I am your Lord; so serve Me.'(92)
وَتَقَطَّعوا أَمرَهُم بَينَهُم ۖ كُلٌّ إِلَينا رٰجِعونَ(93)
But they split up their affair between them; all shall return to Us.(93)
فَمَن يَعمَل مِنَ الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَهُوَ مُؤمِنٌ فَلا كُفرانَ لِسَعيِهِ وَإِنّا لَهُ كٰتِبونَ(94)
And whosoever does deeds of righteousness, being a believer, no unthankfulness shall befall his endeavour; We Ourselves write it down for him.(94)
وَحَرٰمٌ عَلىٰ قَريَةٍ أَهلَكنٰها أَنَّهُم لا يَرجِعونَ(95)
There is a ban upon any city that We have destroyed; they shall not return(95)
حَتّىٰ إِذا فُتِحَت يَأجوجُ وَمَأجوجُ وَهُم مِن كُلِّ حَدَبٍ يَنسِلونَ(96)
till, when Gog and Magog are unloosed, and they slide down out of every slope,(96)
وَاقتَرَبَ الوَعدُ الحَقُّ فَإِذا هِىَ شٰخِصَةٌ أَبصٰرُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا يٰوَيلَنا قَد كُنّا فى غَفلَةٍ مِن هٰذا بَل كُنّا ظٰلِمينَ(97)
and nigh has drawn the true promise, and behold, the eyes of the unbelievers staring: 'Alas for us! We were heedless of this; 'nay, we were evildoers.'(97)
إِنَّكُم وَما تَعبُدونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ حَصَبُ جَهَنَّمَ أَنتُم لَها وٰرِدونَ(98)
'Surely you, and that you were serving apart from God, are fuel for Gehenna; you shall go down to it.'(98)
لَو كانَ هٰؤُلاءِ ءالِهَةً ما وَرَدوها ۖ وَكُلٌّ فيها خٰلِدونَ(99)
If those had been gods, they would never have gone down to it; yet every one of them shall therein abide forever;'(99)
لَهُم فيها زَفيرٌ وَهُم فيها لا يَسمَعونَ(100)
there shall be sighing for them therein, and naught they shall hear.(100)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ سَبَقَت لَهُم مِنَّا الحُسنىٰ أُولٰئِكَ عَنها مُبعَدونَ(101)
But as for those unto whom already the reward most fair has gone forth from Us,(101)
لا يَسمَعونَ حَسيسَها ۖ وَهُم فى مَا اشتَهَت أَنفُسُهُم خٰلِدونَ(102)
they shall be, kept far from it neither shall they hear any whisper of it, and they shall dwell forever in that their souls desired;(102)
لا يَحزُنُهُمُ الفَزَعُ الأَكبَرُ وَتَتَلَقّىٰهُمُ المَلٰئِكَةُ هٰذا يَومُكُمُ الَّذى كُنتُم توعَدونَ(103)
the greatest terror shall not grieve them, and the angels shall receive them: 'This is your day that you were promised.'(103)
يَومَ نَطوِى السَّماءَ كَطَىِّ السِّجِلِّ لِلكُتُبِ ۚ كَما بَدَأنا أَوَّلَ خَلقٍ نُعيدُهُ ۚ وَعدًا عَلَينا ۚ إِنّا كُنّا فٰعِلينَ(104)
On the day when We shall roll up heaven as a scroll is rolled for the writings; as We originated the first creation, so We shall bring it back again -- a promise binding on Us; so We shall do.(104)
وَلَقَد كَتَبنا فِى الزَّبورِ مِن بَعدِ الذِّكرِ أَنَّ الأَرضَ يَرِثُها عِبادِىَ الصّٰلِحونَ(105)
For We have written in the Psalms, after the Remembrance, 'The earth shall be the inheritance of My righteous servants.'(105)
إِنَّ فى هٰذا لَبَلٰغًا لِقَومٍ عٰبِدينَ(106)
Surely in this is a Message delivered unto a people who serve.(106)
وَما أَرسَلنٰكَ إِلّا رَحمَةً لِلعٰلَمينَ(107)
We have not sent thee, save as a mercy unto all beings.(107)
قُل إِنَّما يوحىٰ إِلَىَّ أَنَّما إِلٰهُكُم إِلٰهٌ وٰحِدٌ ۖ فَهَل أَنتُم مُسلِمونَ(108)
Say: 'It is revealed unto me only that your God is One God; do you then surrender?'(108)
فَإِن تَوَلَّوا فَقُل ءاذَنتُكُم عَلىٰ سَواءٍ ۖ وَإِن أَدرى أَقَريبٌ أَم بَعيدٌ ما توعَدونَ(109)
Then, if they should turn their backs, say: 'I have proclaimed to you all equally, even though I know not whether near or far is that you are promised.'(109)
إِنَّهُ يَعلَمُ الجَهرَ مِنَ القَولِ وَيَعلَمُ ما تَكتُمونَ(110)
Surely He knows what is spoken aloud and He knows what you hide.(110)
وَإِن أَدرى لَعَلَّهُ فِتنَةٌ لَكُم وَمَتٰعٌ إِلىٰ حينٍ(111)
I know not; haply it is a trial for you and an enjoyment for a time.(111)
قٰلَ رَبِّ احكُم بِالحَقِّ ۗ وَرَبُّنَا الرَّحمٰنُ المُستَعانُ عَلىٰ ما تَصِفونَ(112)
He said: 'My Lord, judge Thou with truth! And our Lord is the All-merciful; His succour is ever to be sought against that you describe.'(112)
