بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ المص(1)
Alif Lam Mim Sad.(1)
كِتٰبٌ أُنزِلَ إِلَيكَ فَلا يَكُن فى صَدرِكَ حَرَجٌ مِنهُ لِتُنذِرَ بِهِ وَذِكرىٰ لِلمُؤمِنينَ(2)
This Book has been sent down to you; so do not hesitate to warn (the unbelievers) through it, and remind the faithful.(2)
اتَّبِعوا ما أُنزِلَ إِلَيكُم مِن رَبِّكُم وَلا تَتَّبِعوا مِن دونِهِ أَولِياءَ ۗ قَليلًا ما تَذَكَّرونَ(3)
Follow what has been revealed to you by your Lord, and do not follow any other lord apart from Him. Yet little do you care to remember.(3)
وَكَم مِن قَريَةٍ أَهلَكنٰها فَجاءَها بَأسُنا بَيٰتًا أَو هُم قائِلونَ(4)
Many a habitation have We laid low before: Our retribution came upon them in the night or in the midst of siesta at noon.(4)
فَما كانَ دَعوىٰهُم إِذ جاءَهُم بَأسُنا إِلّا أَن قالوا إِنّا كُنّا ظٰلِمينَ(5)
And when Our punishment overtook them they had nothing to say except crying out: "We have indeed been sinners."(5)
فَلَنَسـَٔلَنَّ الَّذينَ أُرسِلَ إِلَيهِم وَلَنَسـَٔلَنَّ المُرسَلينَ(6)
(On the Day of Reckoning) We shall question the people to whom We had sent Our apostles, (if they followed their teachings), and will question the apostles.(6)
فَلَنَقُصَّنَّ عَلَيهِم بِعِلمٍ ۖ وَما كُنّا غائِبينَ(7)
We shall recount (their deeds) to them with knowledge, for We were never absent (and saw all they did).(7)
وَالوَزنُ يَومَئِذٍ الحَقُّ ۚ فَمَن ثَقُلَت مَوٰزينُهُ فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ(8)
And the weighing will be just on that Day. Then those whose (deeds) are heavier in the balance will find fulfilment,(8)
وَمَن خَفَّت مَوٰزينُهُ فَأُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم بِما كانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَظلِمونَ(9)
And those whose (deeds) are lighter in the scale shall perish for violating Our signs.(9)
وَلَقَد مَكَّنّٰكُم فِى الأَرضِ وَجَعَلنا لَكُم فيها مَعٰيِشَ ۗ قَليلًا ما تَشكُرونَ(10)
We settled you on the earth, and provided means of livelihood for you in it; but little are the thanks you give.(10)
وَلَقَد خَلَقنٰكُم ثُمَّ صَوَّرنٰكُم ثُمَّ قُلنا لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ اسجُدوا لِءادَمَ فَسَجَدوا إِلّا إِبليسَ لَم يَكُن مِنَ السّٰجِدينَ(11)
Verily We created you and gave you form and shape, and ordered the angels to bow before Adam in homage; and they all bowed but Iblis who was not among those who bowed.(11)
قالَ ما مَنَعَكَ أَلّا تَسجُدَ إِذ أَمَرتُكَ ۖ قالَ أَنا۠ خَيرٌ مِنهُ خَلَقتَنى مِن نارٍ وَخَلَقتَهُ مِن طينٍ(12)
"What prevented you" (said God), "from bowing (before Adam) at My bidding?" "I am better than him," said he. "You created me from fire, and him from clay."(12)
قالَ فَاهبِط مِنها فَما يَكونُ لَكَ أَن تَتَكَبَّرَ فيها فَاخرُج إِنَّكَ مِنَ الصّٰغِرينَ(13)
So God said: "Descend. You have no right to be insolent here. Go, and away; you are one of the damned."(13)
قالَ أَنظِرنى إِلىٰ يَومِ يُبعَثونَ(14)
"Grant me respite," said he, "till the raising of the dead."(14)
قالَ إِنَّكَ مِنَ المُنظَرينَ(15)
And God said: "You have the respite."(15)
قالَ فَبِما أَغوَيتَنى لَأَقعُدَنَّ لَهُم صِرٰطَكَ المُستَقيمَ(16)
"Since You led me into error," said Iblis, "I shall lie in wait for them along Your straight path.(16)
ثُمَّ لَءاتِيَنَّهُم مِن بَينِ أَيديهِم وَمِن خَلفِهِم وَعَن أَيمٰنِهِم وَعَن شَمائِلِهِم ۖ وَلا تَجِدُ أَكثَرَهُم شٰكِرينَ(17)
And I shall come upon them from the front and behind, right and left; and You will not find among them many who would give thanks."(17)
قالَ اخرُج مِنها مَذءومًا مَدحورًا ۖ لَمَن تَبِعَكَ مِنهُم لَأَملَأَنَّ جَهَنَّمَ مِنكُم أَجمَعينَ(18)
"Begone," said (God), "contemptible and rejected! As for those who follow you, I shall fill up Hell with all of you.(18)
وَيٰـٔادَمُ اسكُن أَنتَ وَزَوجُكَ الجَنَّةَ فَكُلا مِن حَيثُ شِئتُما وَلا تَقرَبا هٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةَ فَتَكونا مِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ(19)
And you, O Adam, and your spouse, live in the Garden and eat your fill wheresoever you like, but do not approach this tree, or you will become iniquitous."(19)
فَوَسوَسَ لَهُمَا الشَّيطٰنُ لِيُبدِىَ لَهُما ما وۥرِىَ عَنهُما مِن سَوءٰتِهِما وَقالَ ما نَهىٰكُما رَبُّكُما عَن هٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ إِلّا أَن تَكونا مَلَكَينِ أَو تَكونا مِنَ الخٰلِدينَ(20)
But Satan suggested (evil) to them, in order to reveal their hidden parts of which they were not aware (till then), and said: "Your Lord has forbidden you (to go near) this tree that you may not become angels or immortal."(20)
وَقاسَمَهُما إِنّى لَكُما لَمِنَ النّٰصِحينَ(21)
Then he said to them on oath: "I am your sincere friend;"(21)
فَدَلّىٰهُما بِغُرورٍ ۚ فَلَمّا ذاقَا الشَّجَرَةَ بَدَت لَهُما سَوءٰتُهُما وَطَفِقا يَخصِفانِ عَلَيهِما مِن وَرَقِ الجَنَّةِ ۖ وَنادىٰهُما رَبُّهُما أَلَم أَنهَكُما عَن تِلكُمَا الشَّجَرَةِ وَأَقُل لَكُما إِنَّ الشَّيطٰنَ لَكُما عَدُوٌّ مُبينٌ(22)
And led them (to the tree) by deceit. When they tasted (the fruit) of the tree their disgrace became exposed to them; and they patched the leaves of the Garden to hide it. And the Lord said to them: "Did I not forbid you this tree? And I told you that Satan was your open enemy.(22)
قالا رَبَّنا ظَلَمنا أَنفُسَنا وَإِن لَم تَغفِر لَنا وَتَرحَمنا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(23)
They said: "O our Lord, we have wronged ourselves. If You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we shall certainly be lost."(23)
قالَ اهبِطوا بَعضُكُم لِبَعضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۖ وَلَكُم فِى الأَرضِ مُستَقَرٌّ وَمَتٰعٌ إِلىٰ حينٍ(24)
"Go," said God, "one the antagonist of the other, and live on the earth for a time ordained, and fend for yourselves.(24)
قالَ فيها تَحيَونَ وَفيها تَموتونَ وَمِنها تُخرَجونَ(25)
You will live there, and there will you die," He said, "and be raised from there (On the Day of Doom)."(25)
يٰبَنى ءادَمَ قَد أَنزَلنا عَلَيكُم لِباسًا يُوٰرى سَوءٰتِكُم وَريشًا ۖ وَلِباسُ التَّقوىٰ ذٰلِكَ خَيرٌ ۚ ذٰلِكَ مِن ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُم يَذَّكَّرونَ(26)
O sons of Adam, We have revealed to you a dress that would both hide your nakedness and be an adornment, but the raiment of piety is best. This is one of the tokens of God: You may haply reflect.(26)
يٰبَنى ءادَمَ لا يَفتِنَنَّكُمُ الشَّيطٰنُ كَما أَخرَجَ أَبَوَيكُم مِنَ الجَنَّةِ يَنزِعُ عَنهُما لِباسَهُما لِيُرِيَهُما سَوءٰتِهِما ۗ إِنَّهُ يَرىٰكُم هُوَ وَقَبيلُهُ مِن حَيثُ لا تَرَونَهُم ۗ إِنّا جَعَلنَا الشَّيٰطينَ أَولِياءَ لِلَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ(27)
O sons of Adam, let not Satan beguile you as he did your parents out of Eden, and made them disrobe to expose their disgrace to them. For he and his host can see you from where you cannot see them. We have made the devils the friends of those who do not believe,(27)
وَإِذا فَعَلوا فٰحِشَةً قالوا وَجَدنا عَلَيها ءاباءَنا وَاللَّهُ أَمَرَنا بِها ۗ قُل إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَأمُرُ بِالفَحشاءِ ۖ أَتَقولونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(28)
Who say when they commit shameful acts: "Our ancestors used to do so, and God has enjoined us to do the same." Say to them: "God never enjoins a conduct that is shameful. You impute such lies to God as you do not know."(28)
قُل أَمَرَ رَبّى بِالقِسطِ ۖ وَأَقيموا وُجوهَكُم عِندَ كُلِّ مَسجِدٍ وَادعوهُ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ ۚ كَما بَدَأَكُم تَعودونَ(29)
Tell them: "My Lord has enjoined piety, devotion in all acts of worship, and calling upon Him with exclusive obedience. For you will be reverted back to what you were (when) created first."(29)
فَريقًا هَدىٰ وَفَريقًا حَقَّ عَلَيهِمُ الضَّلٰلَةُ ۗ إِنَّهُمُ اتَّخَذُوا الشَّيٰطينَ أَولِياءَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ وَيَحسَبونَ أَنَّهُم مُهتَدونَ(30)
A Section (among them) were guided, a section were bound to go astray, (for) instead of God they took the devils as their friends; yet they think they are on the right path.(30)
۞ يٰبَنى ءادَمَ خُذوا زينَتَكُم عِندَ كُلِّ مَسجِدٍ وَكُلوا وَاشرَبوا وَلا تُسرِفوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ المُسرِفينَ(31)
O sons of Adam, attire yourselves at every time of worship; eat and drink, but do not be wasteful, for God does not like the prodigals.(31)
قُل مَن حَرَّمَ زينَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتى أَخرَجَ لِعِبادِهِ وَالطَّيِّبٰتِ مِنَ الرِّزقِ ۚ قُل هِىَ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا خالِصَةً يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ ۗ كَذٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الءايٰتِ لِقَومٍ يَعلَمونَ(32)
Ask them: "Who forbids you attire that God has given to His creatures, and the good things that He has provided?" Tell them: "They are (meant) for believers in the world, and will be theirs on the Day of Judgement." That is how We explain Our signs to those who know.(32)
قُل إِنَّما حَرَّمَ رَبِّىَ الفَوٰحِشَ ما ظَهَرَ مِنها وَما بَطَنَ وَالإِثمَ وَالبَغىَ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ وَأَن تُشرِكوا بِاللَّهِ ما لَم يُنَزِّل بِهِ سُلطٰنًا وَأَن تَقولوا عَلَى اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(33)
Tell them: "My Lord has forbidden repugnant acts, whether open or disguised, sin and unjust oppression, associating others with God, of which He has sent down no authority, and saying things of God of which you have no knowledge."(33)
وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلٌ ۖ فَإِذا جاءَ أَجَلُهُم لا يَستَأخِرونَ ساعَةً ۖ وَلا يَستَقدِمونَ(34)
A term is fixed for every people; and when their appointed time is come there will neither be a moment's delay nor haste.(34)
يٰبَنى ءادَمَ إِمّا يَأتِيَنَّكُم رُسُلٌ مِنكُم يَقُصّونَ عَلَيكُم ءايٰتى ۙ فَمَنِ اتَّقىٰ وَأَصلَحَ فَلا خَوفٌ عَلَيهِم وَلا هُم يَحزَنونَ(35)
O sons of Adam, when apostles come to you from among you, who convey My messages, then those who take heed and amend will have neither fear nor regret.(35)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَاستَكبَروا عَنها أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ النّارِ ۖ هُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(36)
But those who deny Our signs and disdain them, shall belong to Hell, where they will abide for ever.(36)
فَمَن أَظلَمُ مِمَّنِ افتَرىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَو كَذَّبَ بِـٔايٰتِهِ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ يَنالُهُم نَصيبُهُم مِنَ الكِتٰبِ ۖ حَتّىٰ إِذا جاءَتهُم رُسُلُنا يَتَوَفَّونَهُم قالوا أَينَ ما كُنتُم تَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ۖ قالوا ضَلّوا عَنّا وَشَهِدوا عَلىٰ أَنفُسِهِم أَنَّهُم كانوا كٰفِرينَ(37)
Who could be more wicked than he who imputes lies to God or denies His revelations? Such as these will receive what is declared in the Book, and when Our angels come to draw out their souls and ask: "Where are they you worshipped other than God?" They will answer: "They have left us and fled;" and bear witness against themselves for being infidels.(37)
قالَ ادخُلوا فى أُمَمٍ قَد خَلَت مِن قَبلِكُم مِنَ الجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ فِى النّارِ ۖ كُلَّما دَخَلَت أُمَّةٌ لَعَنَت أُختَها ۖ حَتّىٰ إِذَا ادّارَكوا فيها جَميعًا قالَت أُخرىٰهُم لِأولىٰهُم رَبَّنا هٰؤُلاءِ أَضَلّونا فَـٔاتِهِم عَذابًا ضِعفًا مِنَ النّارِ ۖ قالَ لِكُلٍّ ضِعفٌ وَلٰكِن لا تَعلَمونَ(38)
"Enter then the Fire," will God say, "with the past generations of jinns and men." On entering each batch will condemn the other; and when all of them shall have entered one after the other, the last to come will say of those who had come before them: "O our Lord, they are the ones who led us astray; so give them double chastisement in the Fire." He will answer: "For all it will be double; but this you do not know."(38)
وَقالَت أولىٰهُم لِأُخرىٰهُم فَما كانَ لَكُم عَلَينا مِن فَضلٍ فَذوقُوا العَذابَ بِما كُنتُم تَكسِبونَ(39)
Then the former will say to the latter: "You have no privilege over us. So taste the punishment for what you had done."(39)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَاستَكبَروا عَنها لا تُفَتَّحُ لَهُم أَبوٰبُ السَّماءِ وَلا يَدخُلونَ الجَنَّةَ حَتّىٰ يَلِجَ الجَمَلُ فى سَمِّ الخِياطِ ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى المُجرِمينَ(40)
Verily for those who deny Our signs and turn away in haughtiness from them, the gates of heaven shall not be opened, nor will they enter Paradise, not till the camel passes through the needle's eye. That is how We requite the transgressors:(40)
لَهُم مِن جَهَنَّمَ مِهادٌ وَمِن فَوقِهِم غَواشٍ ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى الظّٰلِمينَ(41)
For them is a flooring of Hell and a covering (of fire). That is how We requite the iniquitous.(41)
وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لا نُكَلِّفُ نَفسًا إِلّا وُسعَها أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ الجَنَّةِ ۖ هُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(42)
As for those who believe and do good, We never burden a soul beyond capacity. They are men of Paradise where they will abide for ever.(42)
وَنَزَعنا ما فى صُدورِهِم مِن غِلٍّ تَجرى مِن تَحتِهِمُ الأَنهٰرُ ۖ وَقالُوا الحَمدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذى هَدىٰنا لِهٰذا وَما كُنّا لِنَهتَدِىَ لَولا أَن هَدىٰنَا اللَّهُ ۖ لَقَد جاءَت رُسُلُ رَبِّنا بِالحَقِّ ۖ وَنودوا أَن تِلكُمُ الجَنَّةُ أورِثتُموها بِما كُنتُم تَعمَلونَ(43)
Whatever the rancour they may have in their hearts We shall (cleanse and) remove. Streams of running water shall ripple at their feet, and they will say: "We are grateful to God for guiding us here. Never would we have been guided if God had not shown us the way. The apostles of our Lord had indeed brought the truth." And the cry shall resound: "This is Paradise you have inherited as meed for your deeds."(43)
وَنادىٰ أَصحٰبُ الجَنَّةِ أَصحٰبَ النّارِ أَن قَد وَجَدنا ما وَعَدَنا رَبُّنا حَقًّا فَهَل وَجَدتُم ما وَعَدَ رَبُّكُم حَقًّا ۖ قالوا نَعَم ۚ فَأَذَّنَ مُؤَذِّنٌ بَينَهُم أَن لَعنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَى الظّٰلِمينَ(44)
And the inmates of Paradise will call to the residents of Hell: "We have found that the promise made to us by our Lord was true. Have you also found the promise of your Lord to be true?" They will answer: "Yes (it is so)." Then a crier will call from among them: "The curse of God be on the vile,(44)
الَّذينَ يَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَيَبغونَها عِوَجًا وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ كٰفِرونَ(45)
"Who obstruct those who follow the path of God and try to make it oblique, who do not believe in the life to come."(45)
وَبَينَهُما حِجابٌ ۚ وَعَلَى الأَعرافِ رِجالٌ يَعرِفونَ كُلًّا بِسيمىٰهُم ۚ وَنادَوا أَصحٰبَ الجَنَّةِ أَن سَلٰمٌ عَلَيكُم ۚ لَم يَدخُلوها وَهُم يَطمَعونَ(46)
There will be a veil between them, and on the wall will be the men (of al-A'raf) who will recognise everyone by their distinguishing marks, and will call to the inmates of Paradise: "Peace on you," without having entered it themselves though hoping to do so.(46)
۞ وَإِذا صُرِفَت أَبصٰرُهُم تِلقاءَ أَصحٰبِ النّارِ قالوا رَبَّنا لا تَجعَلنا مَعَ القَومِ الظّٰلِمينَ(47)
When their eyes fall on the inmates of Hell they will say: "O Lord, do not place us in the crowd of the vile."(47)
وَنادىٰ أَصحٰبُ الأَعرافِ رِجالًا يَعرِفونَهُم بِسيمىٰهُم قالوا ما أَغنىٰ عَنكُم جَمعُكُم وَما كُنتُم تَستَكبِرونَ(48)
Recognising them by their marks the men of al-A'raf will call (to the inmates of Hell): "Of what use was your amassing (of wealth) of which you were proud?"(48)
أَهٰؤُلاءِ الَّذينَ أَقسَمتُم لا يَنالُهُمُ اللَّهُ بِرَحمَةٍ ۚ ادخُلُوا الجَنَّةَ لا خَوفٌ عَلَيكُم وَلا أَنتُم تَحزَنونَ(49)
(Then pointing to the inmates of Paradise, they will say): "Are they not those of whom you had sworn and said: 'God will not have mercy on them?' (And yet they have been told,) 'Enter Paradise where you will have no fear or regret.'"(49)
وَنادىٰ أَصحٰبُ النّارِ أَصحٰبَ الجَنَّةِ أَن أَفيضوا عَلَينا مِنَ الماءِ أَو مِمّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ ۚ قالوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ حَرَّمَهُما عَلَى الكٰفِرينَ(50)
Those in Hell will call to the inmates of Paradise: "Pour a little water over us, or give us a little of what God has given you." They will answer: "God has verily forbidden these to those who denied the truth.(50)
الَّذينَ اتَّخَذوا دينَهُم لَهوًا وَلَعِبًا وَغَرَّتهُمُ الحَيوٰةُ الدُّنيا ۚ فَاليَومَ نَنسىٰهُم كَما نَسوا لِقاءَ يَومِهِم هٰذا وَما كانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَجحَدونَ(51)
"Who made a sport and frolic of their faith and were lured by the life of the world." As they had forgotten the meeting of this Day so shall We neglect them today for having rejected Our signs.(51)
وَلَقَد جِئنٰهُم بِكِتٰبٍ فَصَّلنٰهُ عَلىٰ عِلمٍ هُدًى وَرَحمَةً لِقَومٍ يُؤمِنونَ(52)
Indeed We had brought to them a Book distinct, replete with knowledge, and guidance and grace for men who believe.(52)
هَل يَنظُرونَ إِلّا تَأويلَهُ ۚ يَومَ يَأتى تَأويلُهُ يَقولُ الَّذينَ نَسوهُ مِن قَبلُ قَد جاءَت رُسُلُ رَبِّنا بِالحَقِّ فَهَل لَنا مِن شُفَعاءَ فَيَشفَعوا لَنا أَو نُرَدُّ فَنَعمَلَ غَيرَ الَّذى كُنّا نَعمَلُ ۚ قَد خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم وَضَلَّ عَنهُم ما كانوا يَفتَرونَ(53)
Are they waiting for the exposition of what it speaks of? The day that (Reality) is unravelled, the people who had lost sight of it will say: "The apostles of our Lord had indeed brought the truth. Do we have any one to intercede for us? If only we could go back to the world, we would act otherwise." Indeed they have caused themselves harm, and the lies they concocted did not help.(53)
إِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ اللَّهُ الَّذى خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ فى سِتَّةِ أَيّامٍ ثُمَّ استَوىٰ عَلَى العَرشِ يُغشِى الَّيلَ النَّهارَ يَطلُبُهُ حَثيثًا وَالشَّمسَ وَالقَمَرَ وَالنُّجومَ مُسَخَّرٰتٍ بِأَمرِهِ ۗ أَلا لَهُ الخَلقُ وَالأَمرُ ۗ تَبارَكَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ العٰلَمينَ(54)
Surely your Lord is God who created the heavens and the earth in six spans of time, then assumed all power. He covers up the day with night which comes chasing it fast; and the sun and moon and the stars are subject to His command. It is His to create and enjoin. Blessed be God, the Lord of all the worlds.(54)
ادعوا رَبَّكُم تَضَرُّعًا وَخُفيَةً ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ المُعتَدينَ(55)
Pray to your Lord in humility and unseen. He does not love the iniquitous.(55)
وَلا تُفسِدوا فِى الأَرضِ بَعدَ إِصلٰحِها وَادعوهُ خَوفًا وَطَمَعًا ۚ إِنَّ رَحمَتَ اللَّهِ قَريبٌ مِنَ المُحسِنينَ(56)
And do not corrupt the land after it has been reformed; and pray to Him in awe and expectation. The blessing of God is at hand for those who do good.(56)
وَهُوَ الَّذى يُرسِلُ الرِّيٰحَ بُشرًا بَينَ يَدَى رَحمَتِهِ ۖ حَتّىٰ إِذا أَقَلَّت سَحابًا ثِقالًا سُقنٰهُ لِبَلَدٍ مَيِّتٍ فَأَنزَلنا بِهِ الماءَ فَأَخرَجنا بِهِ مِن كُلِّ الثَّمَرٰتِ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نُخرِجُ المَوتىٰ لَعَلَّكُم تَذَكَّرونَ(57)
Indeed it is He who sends the winds as harbingers of auspicious news announcing His beneficence, bringing heavy clouds which We drive towards a region lying dead, and send down rain, and raise all kinds of fruits. So shall We raise the dead that you may think and reflect.(57)
وَالبَلَدُ الطَّيِّبُ يَخرُجُ نَباتُهُ بِإِذنِ رَبِّهِ ۖ وَالَّذى خَبُثَ لا يَخرُجُ إِلّا نَكِدًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نُصَرِّفُ الءايٰتِ لِقَومٍ يَشكُرونَ(58)
The soil that is good produces (rich) crops by the will of its Lord, and that which is had yields only what is poor. So do We explain Our signs in different ways to people who give thanks.(58)
لَقَد أَرسَلنا نوحًا إِلىٰ قَومِهِ فَقالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ إِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم عَذابَ يَومٍ عَظيمٍ(59)
We sent Noah to his people, and he said: "O people worship God; you have no other god but He; for I fear the retribution of the great Day may fall on you."(59)
قالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِهِ إِنّا لَنَرىٰكَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(60)
The elders of his people replied: "We see clearly that you have gone astray."(60)
قالَ يٰقَومِ لَيسَ بى ضَلٰلَةٌ وَلٰكِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(61)
"I have not gone astray, O my people," he said, "but have been sent by my Lord, the creator of all the worlds.(61)
أُبَلِّغُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَأَنصَحُ لَكُم وَأَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(62)
I bring to you the messages of my Lord, and give you sincere advice, for I know from God what you do not know.(62)
أَوَعَجِبتُم أَن جاءَكُم ذِكرٌ مِن رَبِّكُم عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ مِنكُم لِيُنذِرَكُم وَلِتَتَّقوا وَلَعَلَّكُم تُرحَمونَ(63)
Do you wonder that a warning has come to you from your Lord through a man who is one of you, and warns you to take heed for yourselves and fear God? You might be treated with mercy."(63)
فَكَذَّبوهُ فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَالَّذينَ مَعَهُ فِى الفُلكِ وَأَغرَقنَا الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومًا عَمينَ(64)
But they called him a liar, and We saved him and those with him in the Ark, and drowned the others who rejected Our signs, for they were a people purblind.(64)
۞ وَإِلىٰ عادٍ أَخاهُم هودًا ۗ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۚ أَفَلا تَتَّقونَ(65)
And We sent Hud, their brother, to the people of 'Ad. He said: "O you people, worship God, for you have no other god but He. Will you not take heed for yourselves?"(65)
قالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا مِن قَومِهِ إِنّا لَنَرىٰكَ فى سَفاهَةٍ وَإِنّا لَنَظُنُّكَ مِنَ الكٰذِبينَ(66)
The chiefs of his people who were infidels replied: "We find you full of folly, and a liar to boot."(66)
قالَ يٰقَومِ لَيسَ بى سَفاهَةٌ وَلٰكِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(67)
"I am not a fool, O people," he answered, "but have been sent by the Lord of all the worlds.(67)
أُبَلِّغُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَأَنا۠ لَكُم ناصِحٌ أَمينٌ(68)
I bring to you the messages of my Lord. I am your sincere friend.(68)
أَوَعَجِبتُم أَن جاءَكُم ذِكرٌ مِن رَبِّكُم عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ مِنكُم لِيُنذِرَكُم ۚ وَاذكُروا إِذ جَعَلَكُم خُلَفاءَ مِن بَعدِ قَومِ نوحٍ وَزادَكُم فِى الخَلقِ بَصۜطَةً ۖ فَاذكُروا ءالاءَ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّكُم تُفلِحونَ(69)
Do you wonder that a warning has come to you from your Lord through a man who is one of you and warns you? Remember, He made you leaders after the people of Noah, and gave you a greater increase in your stature. So think of the favours of God; you may haply be blessed."(69)
قالوا أَجِئتَنا لِنَعبُدَ اللَّهَ وَحدَهُ وَنَذَرَ ما كانَ يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُنا ۖ فَأتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(70)
They answered: "Have you come to say to us that we should worship only one God, abandoning those our ancestors had worshipped? If so, bring on us what you threaten us with, if what you say is true."(70)
قالَ قَد وَقَعَ عَلَيكُم مِن رَبِّكُم رِجسٌ وَغَضَبٌ ۖ أَتُجٰدِلونَنى فى أَسماءٍ سَمَّيتُموها أَنتُم وَءاباؤُكُم ما نَزَّلَ اللَّهُ بِها مِن سُلطٰنٍ ۚ فَانتَظِروا إِنّى مَعَكُم مِنَ المُنتَظِرينَ(71)
He replied: "You have already been beset with punishment and the wrath of God. Why dispute with me about names invented by you and your ancestors for which no sanction was sent down? So wait (for what is to come), I am waiting with you."(71)
فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَالَّذينَ مَعَهُ بِرَحمَةٍ مِنّا وَقَطَعنا دابِرَ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۖ وَما كانوا مُؤمِنينَ(72)
Then We saved him and those on his side by Our grace, and destroyed to the very last those who rejected Our signs and denied the truth.(72)
وَإِلىٰ ثَمودَ أَخاهُم صٰلِحًا ۗ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۖ قَد جاءَتكُم بَيِّنَةٌ مِن رَبِّكُم ۖ هٰذِهِ ناقَةُ اللَّهِ لَكُم ءايَةً ۖ فَذَروها تَأكُل فى أَرضِ اللَّهِ ۖ وَلا تَمَسّوها بِسوءٍ فَيَأخُذَكُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(73)
We sent to Thamud their brother Saleh. "O you people," said he, "worship God, for you have no other god but He. Clear proof has come to you already from your Lord, and this she-camel of God is the token for you. Leave her free to graze upon God's earth, and do not molest her lest a grievous punishment should befall you.(73)
وَاذكُروا إِذ جَعَلَكُم خُلَفاءَ مِن بَعدِ عادٍ وَبَوَّأَكُم فِى الأَرضِ تَتَّخِذونَ مِن سُهولِها قُصورًا وَتَنحِتونَ الجِبالَ بُيوتًا ۖ فَاذكُروا ءالاءَ اللَّهِ وَلا تَعثَوا فِى الأَرضِ مُفسِدينَ(74)
Remember, how you were made leaders after the people of 'Ad, and were settled on the land so that you could construct on the plains palaces, and carve dwellings out of mountains. So think of the favours of God, and do not act with corruption in the land."(74)
قالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا مِن قَومِهِ لِلَّذينَ استُضعِفوا لِمَن ءامَنَ مِنهُم أَتَعلَمونَ أَنَّ صٰلِحًا مُرسَلٌ مِن رَبِّهِ ۚ قالوا إِنّا بِما أُرسِلَ بِهِ مُؤمِنونَ(75)
The chiefs among the people who were arrogant towards the weaker ones among them who believed, asked: "Do you really know that Saleh has been sent by his Lord?" They said: "Indeed we believe in the message he has brought."(75)
قالَ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا إِنّا بِالَّذى ءامَنتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(76)
Those who were arrogant answered: "We do not believe in what you believe."(76)
فَعَقَرُوا النّاقَةَ وَعَتَوا عَن أَمرِ رَبِّهِم وَقالوا يٰصٰلِحُ ائتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ المُرسَلينَ(77)
Then they hamstrung the she-camel and rebelled against the command of their Lord, and said: "Bring, O Saleh, on us the affliction you promise, if you are one of the sent ones."(77)
فَأَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دارِهِم جٰثِمينَ(78)
Then they were seized by an earthquake, and lay overturned on the ground in their homes in the morning.(78)
فَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰقَومِ لَقَد أَبلَغتُكُم رِسالَةَ رَبّى وَنَصَحتُ لَكُم وَلٰكِن لا تُحِبّونَ النّٰصِحينَ(79)
Saleh turned away from them and said: "O my people, I conveyed to you the message of my Lord and warned you; but you do not like those who wish you well."(79)
وَلوطًا إِذ قالَ لِقَومِهِ أَتَأتونَ الفٰحِشَةَ ما سَبَقَكُم بِها مِن أَحَدٍ مِنَ العٰلَمينَ(80)
And We sent Lot, who said to his people: "Why do you commit this lecherous act which none in the world has committed before?(80)
إِنَّكُم لَتَأتونَ الرِّجالَ شَهوَةً مِن دونِ النِّساءِ ۚ بَل أَنتُم قَومٌ مُسرِفونَ(81)
In preference to women you satisfy your lust with men. Indeed you are a people who are guilty of excess."(81)
وَما كانَ جَوابَ قَومِهِ إِلّا أَن قالوا أَخرِجوهُم مِن قَريَتِكُم ۖ إِنَّهُم أُناسٌ يَتَطَهَّرونَ(82)
His people made no answer, and only said: "Drive them out of the city. They profess to be pure."(82)
فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَأَهلَهُ إِلَّا امرَأَتَهُ كانَت مِنَ الغٰبِرينَ(83)
But We saved him and his family, except for his wife who was one of those who stayed behind.(83)
وَأَمطَرنا عَلَيهِم مَطَرًا ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُجرِمينَ(84)
And We rained down on them a shower (of Stones). So witness the end of sinners!(84)
وَإِلىٰ مَديَنَ أَخاهُم شُعَيبًا ۗ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۖ قَد جاءَتكُم بَيِّنَةٌ مِن رَبِّكُم ۖ فَأَوفُوا الكَيلَ وَالميزانَ وَلا تَبخَسُوا النّاسَ أَشياءَهُم وَلا تُفسِدوا فِى الأَرضِ بَعدَ إِصلٰحِها ۚ ذٰلِكُم خَيرٌ لَكُم إِن كُنتُم مُؤمِنينَ(85)
Remember, We sent to Midian their brother Shu'aib. "O you people," he said, "worship God, for you have no other god but He. Clear proof has come to you from your Lord; so give in full measure and full weight; do not keep back from people what is theirs, and do not corrupt the land after it has been reformed. This is best for you if you believe.(85)
وَلا تَقعُدوا بِكُلِّ صِرٰطٍ توعِدونَ وَتَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ مَن ءامَنَ بِهِ وَتَبغونَها عِوَجًا ۚ وَاذكُروا إِذ كُنتُم قَليلًا فَكَثَّرَكُم ۖ وَانظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُفسِدينَ(86)
Do not lie in ambush to intimidate and divert from the path of God those who believe in Him, nor seek obliquity in it. Remember the day when you were few and He increased your numbers. So consider the fate of those who were evil.(86)
وَإِن كانَ طائِفَةٌ مِنكُم ءامَنوا بِالَّذى أُرسِلتُ بِهِ وَطائِفَةٌ لَم يُؤمِنوا فَاصبِروا حَتّىٰ يَحكُمَ اللَّهُ بَينَنا ۚ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الحٰكِمينَ(87)
If some of you believe what has been sent through me, and some of you do not, have patience until God decide between us, for He is the best of all judges."(87)
۞ قالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا مِن قَومِهِ لَنُخرِجَنَّكَ يٰشُعَيبُ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَكَ مِن قَريَتِنا أَو لَتَعودُنَّ فى مِلَّتِنا ۚ قالَ أَوَلَو كُنّا كٰرِهينَ(88)
The arrogant leaders of the people replied: "We shall drive you away from our land, O Shu'aib, and those who are with you, unless you come back to your faith." But he remarked: "Even if we are disgusted with it?(88)
قَدِ افتَرَينا عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا إِن عُدنا فى مِلَّتِكُم بَعدَ إِذ نَجّىٰنَا اللَّهُ مِنها ۚ وَما يَكونُ لَنا أَن نَعودَ فيها إِلّا أَن يَشاءَ اللَّهُ رَبُّنا ۚ وَسِعَ رَبُّنا كُلَّ شَيءٍ عِلمًا ۚ عَلَى اللَّهِ تَوَكَّلنا ۚ رَبَّنَا افتَح بَينَنا وَبَينَ قَومِنا بِالحَقِّ وَأَنتَ خَيرُ الفٰتِحينَ(89)
We shall only be guilty of blaspheming God if we accept your way after the people of Noah, and gave you a greater increase in your stature. So think of the favours of God; you may haply be blessed."(89)
وَقالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا مِن قَومِهِ لَئِنِ اتَّبَعتُم شُعَيبًا إِنَّكُم إِذًا لَخٰسِرونَ(90)
The chiefs among his people who did not believe said (to them): "If you follow Shu'aib and his way you will surely be ruined."(90)
فَأَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دارِهِم جٰثِمينَ(91)
Then they were seized by an earthquake, and lay overturned on the ground in their homes in the morning.(91)
الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا شُعَيبًا كَأَن لَم يَغنَوا فيهَا ۚ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا شُعَيبًا كانوا هُمُ الخٰسِرينَ(92)
They who called Shu'aib a liar (disappeared) as though they had never existed; and those who called Shu'aib a liar were the ones who were ruined!(92)
فَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰقَومِ لَقَد أَبلَغتُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَنَصَحتُ لَكُم ۖ فَكَيفَ ءاسىٰ عَلىٰ قَومٍ كٰفِرينَ(93)
So Shu'aib turned away from them and said: "O people, I conveyed to you the message of my Lord, and warned you. (But you paid no heed). How can I grieve for a people who do not believe?"(93)
وَما أَرسَلنا فى قَريَةٍ مِن نَبِىٍّ إِلّا أَخَذنا أَهلَها بِالبَأساءِ وَالضَّرّاءِ لَعَلَّهُم يَضَّرَّعونَ(94)
There is not a region to which We sent a prophet and did not inflict upon its people adversity and hardship so that they may submit.(94)
ثُمَّ بَدَّلنا مَكانَ السَّيِّئَةِ الحَسَنَةَ حَتّىٰ عَفَوا وَقالوا قَد مَسَّ ءاباءَنَا الضَّرّاءُ وَالسَّرّاءُ فَأَخَذنٰهُم بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(95)
But when We changed hardship to ease, and they rose and prospered, (they forgot Our favours) and said: "Our ancestors had also known suffering and joy." So We caught them unawares.(95)
وَلَو أَنَّ أَهلَ القُرىٰ ءامَنوا وَاتَّقَوا لَفَتَحنا عَلَيهِم بَرَكٰتٍ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَالأَرضِ وَلٰكِن كَذَّبوا فَأَخَذنٰهُم بِما كانوا يَكسِبونَ(96)
But if the people of these regions had believed and feared God, We would surely have showered on them blessings of the heavens and the earth; but they only denied, and We punished them for their deeds.(96)
أَفَأَمِنَ أَهلُ القُرىٰ أَن يَأتِيَهُم بَأسُنا بَيٰتًا وَهُم نائِمونَ(97)
Are the people of the region so secure that they lie asleep unaware as Our punishment overtakes them?(97)
أَوَأَمِنَ أَهلُ القُرىٰ أَن يَأتِيَهُم بَأسُنا ضُحًى وَهُم يَلعَبونَ(98)
Or, are the people of the towns so unafraid that (even when) Our retribution comes upon them in the hours of the morning they remain engrossed in sport and play?(98)
أَفَأَمِنوا مَكرَ اللَّهِ ۚ فَلا يَأمَنُ مَكرَ اللَّهِ إِلَّا القَومُ الخٰسِرونَ(99)
Can they remain secure against the plan of God? Only they feel secure against the plan of God who are certain of being ruined.(99)
أَوَلَم يَهدِ لِلَّذينَ يَرِثونَ الأَرضَ مِن بَعدِ أَهلِها أَن لَو نَشاءُ أَصَبنٰهُم بِذُنوبِهِم ۚ وَنَطبَعُ عَلىٰ قُلوبِهِم فَهُم لا يَسمَعونَ(100)
Do not the people who inherited the earth from the (earlier) inhabitants perceive that We could afflict them too for their sins if We pleased, and put seals on their hearts that they may not hear (the voice of truth)?(100)
تِلكَ القُرىٰ نَقُصُّ عَلَيكَ مِن أَنبائِها ۚ وَلَقَد جاءَتهُم رُسُلُهُم بِالبَيِّنٰتِ فَما كانوا لِيُؤمِنوا بِما كَذَّبوا مِن قَبلُ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ يَطبَعُ اللَّهُ عَلىٰ قُلوبِ الكٰفِرينَ(101)
These were the (earlier) habitations whose accounts We have given to you. Their apostles came with clear proofs, but they did not believe what they once denied. That is how God seals the hearts of those who do not believe.(101)
وَما وَجَدنا لِأَكثَرِهِم مِن عَهدٍ ۖ وَإِن وَجَدنا أَكثَرَهُم لَفٰسِقينَ(102)
We did not find many of them faithful to their promises, and found many of them disobedient.(102)
ثُمَّ بَعَثنا مِن بَعدِهِم موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِ فَظَلَموا بِها ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُفسِدينَ(103)
So We sent Moses with miracles after (these apostles) to the Pharaoh and his nobles, but they behaved with them high-handedly. See then the end of the authors of evil.(103)
وَقالَ موسىٰ يٰفِرعَونُ إِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(104)
Moses said: "O Pharaoh, I have been sent by the Lord of all the worlds;(104)
حَقيقٌ عَلىٰ أَن لا أَقولَ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِلَّا الحَقَّ ۚ قَد جِئتُكُم بِبَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبِّكُم فَأَرسِل مَعِىَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(105)
"I am duty bound to speak nothing of God but the truth I have brought from your Lord a clear sign; so let the people of Israel depart with me."(105)
قالَ إِن كُنتَ جِئتَ بِـٔايَةٍ فَأتِ بِها إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(106)
He said: "If you have brought a sign then display it, if what you say is true."(106)
فَأَلقىٰ عَصاهُ فَإِذا هِىَ ثُعبانٌ مُبينٌ(107)
At this Moses threw down his staff, and lo, it became a live serpent.(107)
وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُ فَإِذا هِىَ بَيضاءُ لِلنّٰظِرينَ(108)
And he drew forth his hand, and behold, it looked white to those who beheld it.(108)
قالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِ فِرعَونَ إِنَّ هٰذا لَسٰحِرٌ عَليمٌ(109)
The nobles of Pharaoh said: "He surely is a clever magician.(109)
يُريدُ أَن يُخرِجَكُم مِن أَرضِكُم ۖ فَماذا تَأمُرونَ(110)
"He wishes to drive you away from the land. So what do you advise?"(110)
قالوا أَرجِه وَأَخاهُ وَأَرسِل فِى المَدائِنِ حٰشِرينَ(111)
They said: "Put him and his brother off (awhile) and send out heralds to the cities(111)
يَأتوكَ بِكُلِّ سٰحِرٍ عَليمٍ(112)
"To bring all the wise magicians to you."(112)
وَجاءَ السَّحَرَةُ فِرعَونَ قالوا إِنَّ لَنا لَأَجرًا إِن كُنّا نَحنُ الغٰلِبينَ(113)
The magicians came to the Pharaoh and said: "Is there reward for us if we succeed?"(113)
قالَ نَعَم وَإِنَّكُم لَمِنَ المُقَرَّبينَ(114)
"Yes," said he, "you will be among the honoured."(114)
قالوا يٰموسىٰ إِمّا أَن تُلقِىَ وَإِمّا أَن نَكونَ نَحنُ المُلقينَ(115)
So they said: "O Moses, you may cast your spell first, or we shall cast ours."(115)
قالَ أَلقوا ۖ فَلَمّا أَلقَوا سَحَروا أَعيُنَ النّاسِ وَاستَرهَبوهُم وَجاءو بِسِحرٍ عَظيمٍ(116)
"You cast it first," answered Moses. When they cast their spell, they bewitched the eyes of the people and petrified them by conjuring up a great charm.(116)
۞ وَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ أَن أَلقِ عَصاكَ ۖ فَإِذا هِىَ تَلقَفُ ما يَأفِكونَ(117)
We said to Moses: "Throw down your staff;" and it swallowed up their conjurations in no time.(117)
فَوَقَعَ الحَقُّ وَبَطَلَ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(118)
Thus the truth was upheld, and the falsehood that they practised was exposed.(118)
فَغُلِبوا هُنالِكَ وَانقَلَبوا صٰغِرينَ(119)
Thus there and then they were vanquished and overthrown, humiliated.(119)
وَأُلقِىَ السَّحَرَةُ سٰجِدينَ(120)
The sorcerers fell to the ground in homage,(120)
قالوا ءامَنّا بِرَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(121)
And said: "We have come to believe in the Lord of all the worlds,(121)
رَبِّ موسىٰ وَهٰرونَ(122)
"The Lord of Moses and Aaron."(122)
قالَ فِرعَونُ ءامَنتُم بِهِ قَبلَ أَن ءاذَنَ لَكُم ۖ إِنَّ هٰذا لَمَكرٌ مَكَرتُموهُ فِى المَدينَةِ لِتُخرِجوا مِنها أَهلَها ۖ فَسَوفَ تَعلَمونَ(123)
But Pharaoh said: "You have come to accept belief in Him without my permission! This surely is a plot you have hatched to expel the people from the land. You will soon come to know.(123)
لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيدِيَكُم وَأَرجُلَكُم مِن خِلٰفٍ ثُمَّ لَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُم أَجمَعينَ(124)
"I will have your hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, and have you all crucified."(124)
قالوا إِنّا إِلىٰ رَبِّنا مُنقَلِبونَ(125)
They answered: "We have (in any case) to go back to our Lord.(125)
وَما تَنقِمُ مِنّا إِلّا أَن ءامَنّا بِـٔايٰتِ رَبِّنا لَمّا جاءَتنا ۚ رَبَّنا أَفرِغ عَلَينا صَبرًا وَتَوَفَّنا مُسلِمينَ(126)
"The only reason you have to hate us is that we believed in the signs of our Lord as they came to us. O our Lord, give us sufficient endurance that we may die submitting (to You)."(126)
وَقالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِ فِرعَونَ أَتَذَرُ موسىٰ وَقَومَهُ لِيُفسِدوا فِى الأَرضِ وَيَذَرَكَ وَءالِهَتَكَ ۚ قالَ سَنُقَتِّلُ أَبناءَهُم وَنَستَحيۦ نِساءَهُم وَإِنّا فَوقَهُم قٰهِرونَ(127)
And the leaders of Pharaoh's people said to him: "Would you allow Moses and his people to create disorder in the land and discard you and your gods?" He replied: "We shall now slay their sons and spare their women, and subdue them."(127)
قالَ موسىٰ لِقَومِهِ استَعينوا بِاللَّهِ وَاصبِروا ۖ إِنَّ الأَرضَ لِلَّهِ يورِثُها مَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ ۖ وَالعٰقِبَةُ لِلمُتَّقينَ(128)
Said Moses to his people: "Invoke the help of God and be firm. The earth belongs to God: He can make whom He wills among His creatures inherit it. The future is theirs who take heed for themselves."(128)
قالوا أوذينا مِن قَبلِ أَن تَأتِيَنا وَمِن بَعدِ ما جِئتَنا ۚ قالَ عَسىٰ رَبُّكُم أَن يُهلِكَ عَدُوَّكُم وَيَستَخلِفَكُم فِى الأَرضِ فَيَنظُرَ كَيفَ تَعمَلونَ(129)
They said: "We were oppressed before you came, and have been since you have come to us." He answered: "It may well be that soon God may destroy your enemy and make you inherit the land, and then see how you behave."(129)
وَلَقَد أَخَذنا ءالَ فِرعَونَ بِالسِّنينَ وَنَقصٍ مِنَ الثَّمَرٰتِ لَعَلَّهُم يَذَّكَّرونَ(130)
We afflicted the people of Pharaoh with famine and dearth of everything that they might take heed.(130)
فَإِذا جاءَتهُمُ الحَسَنَةُ قالوا لَنا هٰذِهِ ۖ وَإِن تُصِبهُم سَيِّئَةٌ يَطَّيَّروا بِموسىٰ وَمَن مَعَهُ ۗ أَلا إِنَّما طٰئِرُهُم عِندَ اللَّهِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَهُم لا يَعلَمونَ(131)
Yet when good came their way they said: "It is our due;" but when misfortune befell them they put the omen down to Moses and those who were with him. But surely the omen was with God, yet most of them did not understand.(131)
وَقالوا مَهما تَأتِنا بِهِ مِن ءايَةٍ لِتَسحَرَنا بِها فَما نَحنُ لَكَ بِمُؤمِنينَ(132)
They said: "Whatsoever the sign you have brought to deceive us, we shall not believe in you."(132)
فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِمُ الطّوفانَ وَالجَرادَ وَالقُمَّلَ وَالضَّفادِعَ وَالدَّمَ ءايٰتٍ مُفَصَّلٰتٍ فَاستَكبَروا وَكانوا قَومًا مُجرِمينَ(133)
So We let loose on them floods and locusts, and vermin, frogs and blood -- how many different signs. But they still remained arrogant, for they were a people full of sin.(133)
وَلَمّا وَقَعَ عَلَيهِمُ الرِّجزُ قالوا يٰموسَى ادعُ لَنا رَبَّكَ بِما عَهِدَ عِندَكَ ۖ لَئِن كَشَفتَ عَنَّا الرِّجزَ لَنُؤمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(134)
Yet when punishment overtook them, they said: "O Moses, invoke your Lord for us as you have been enjoined. If the torment is removed, we shall certainly believe in you and let the people of Israel go with you."(134)
فَلَمّا كَشَفنا عَنهُمُ الرِّجزَ إِلىٰ أَجَلٍ هُم بٰلِغوهُ إِذا هُم يَنكُثونَ(135)
But no sooner was the punishment withdrawn for a time to enable them to make good their promise than they broke it.(135)
فَانتَقَمنا مِنهُم فَأَغرَقنٰهُم فِى اليَمِّ بِأَنَّهُم كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَكانوا عَنها غٰفِلينَ(136)
So We took vengeance on them, and drowned them in the sea for rejecting Our signs and not heeding them.(136)
وَأَورَثنَا القَومَ الَّذينَ كانوا يُستَضعَفونَ مَشٰرِقَ الأَرضِ وَمَغٰرِبَهَا الَّتى بٰرَكنا فيها ۖ وَتَمَّت كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ الحُسنىٰ عَلىٰ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ بِما صَبَروا ۖ وَدَمَّرنا ما كانَ يَصنَعُ فِرعَونُ وَقَومُهُ وَما كانوا يَعرِشونَ(137)
We then made the people who were weak (and oppressed) successors of the land to the East and the West which We had blessed. Thus the fair promise of your Lord to the children of Israel was fulfilled, for they were patient in adversity; and whatsoever the Pharaoh and his people had fashioned, and the structures they had raised, were destroyed.(137)
وَجٰوَزنا بِبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ البَحرَ فَأَتَوا عَلىٰ قَومٍ يَعكُفونَ عَلىٰ أَصنامٍ لَهُم ۚ قالوا يٰموسَى اجعَل لَنا إِلٰهًا كَما لَهُم ءالِهَةٌ ۚ قالَ إِنَّكُم قَومٌ تَجهَلونَ(138)
When We brought the children of Israel across the sea, and they came to a people who were devoted to their idols, they said: "O Moses, make us also a god like theirs." "You are ignorant," he replied.(138)
إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ مُتَبَّرٌ ما هُم فيهِ وَبٰطِلٌ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(139)
"These people and their ways will surely be destroyed, for false is what they practise.(139)
قالَ أَغَيرَ اللَّهِ أَبغيكُم إِلٰهًا وَهُوَ فَضَّلَكُم عَلَى العٰلَمينَ(140)
"Do you want me to seek for you," he said, "a god other than God, when He has exalted you over all the nations of the world?(140)
وَإِذ أَنجَينٰكُم مِن ءالِ فِرعَونَ يَسومونَكُم سوءَ العَذابِ ۖ يُقَتِّلونَ أَبناءَكُم وَيَستَحيونَ نِساءَكُم ۚ وَفى ذٰلِكُم بَلاءٌ مِن رَبِّكُم عَظيمٌ(141)
"Remember (the day) when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh who oppressed and afflicted you, and slew your sons and spared your women. In this was a great trial from your Lord."(141)
۞ وَوٰعَدنا موسىٰ ثَلٰثينَ لَيلَةً وَأَتمَمنٰها بِعَشرٍ فَتَمَّ ميقٰتُ رَبِّهِ أَربَعينَ لَيلَةً ۚ وَقالَ موسىٰ لِأَخيهِ هٰرونَ اخلُفنى فى قَومى وَأَصلِح وَلا تَتَّبِع سَبيلَ المُفسِدينَ(142)
We made an appointment of thirty nights with Moses (On Mount Sinai) to which We added ten more; so the term set by the Lord was completed in forty nights. Moses said to Aaron, his brother: "Deputise for me among my people. Dispose rightly, and do not follow the way of the authors of evil."(142)
وَلَمّا جاءَ موسىٰ لِميقٰتِنا وَكَلَّمَهُ رَبُّهُ قالَ رَبِّ أَرِنى أَنظُر إِلَيكَ ۚ قالَ لَن تَرىٰنى وَلٰكِنِ انظُر إِلَى الجَبَلِ فَإِنِ استَقَرَّ مَكانَهُ فَسَوفَ تَرىٰنى ۚ فَلَمّا تَجَلّىٰ رَبُّهُ لِلجَبَلِ جَعَلَهُ دَكًّا وَخَرَّ موسىٰ صَعِقًا ۚ فَلَمّا أَفاقَ قالَ سُبحٰنَكَ تُبتُ إِلَيكَ وَأَنا۠ أَوَّلُ المُؤمِنينَ(143)
When Moses arrived at the appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said: "O Lord, reveal Yourself to me that I may behold You." "You cannot behold Me," He said. "But look at the mountain: If it remains firm in its place you may then behold Me." But when his Lord appeared on the mountain in His effulgence, it crumbled to a heap of dust, and Moses fell unconscious. When he came to, he said: "All glory to You. I turn to You in repentance, and I am the first to believe."(143)
قالَ يٰموسىٰ إِنِّى اصطَفَيتُكَ عَلَى النّاسِ بِرِسٰلٰتى وَبِكَلٰمى فَخُذ ما ءاتَيتُكَ وَكُن مِنَ الشّٰكِرينَ(144)
Said (the Lord): "O Moses, I raised you above all men by sending My messages and speaking to you; so receive what I give you, and be grateful."(144)
وَكَتَبنا لَهُ فِى الأَلواحِ مِن كُلِّ شَيءٍ مَوعِظَةً وَتَفصيلًا لِكُلِّ شَيءٍ فَخُذها بِقُوَّةٍ وَأمُر قَومَكَ يَأخُذوا بِأَحسَنِها ۚ سَأُو۟ريكُم دارَ الفٰسِقينَ(145)
And We wrote down on tablets admonitions and clear explanations of all things for Moses, and ordered him: "Hold fast to them, and command your people to observe the best in them. I will show you the abode of the wicked.(145)
سَأَصرِفُ عَن ءايٰتِىَ الَّذينَ يَتَكَبَّرونَ فِى الأَرضِ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ وَإِن يَرَوا كُلَّ ءايَةٍ لا يُؤمِنوا بِها وَإِن يَرَوا سَبيلَ الرُّشدِ لا يَتَّخِذوهُ سَبيلًا وَإِن يَرَوا سَبيلَ الغَىِّ يَتَّخِذوهُ سَبيلًا ۚ ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُم كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَكانوا عَنها غٰفِلينَ(146)
I will turn those away from My signs who behave unjustly with arrogance in the land so that even though they see all the signs they will not believe in them; and if they see the path of rectitude, will not take it to be a way; and if they see the way of error take it to be the (right) path. This is so for they have called Our messages lies, and have been heedless of them."(146)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَلِقاءِ الءاخِرَةِ حَبِطَت أَعمٰلُهُم ۚ هَل يُجزَونَ إِلّا ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(147)
Vain are the acts of those who deny Our signs and the meeting in the Hereafter. Can they ever be rewarded for anything but what they did?(147)
وَاتَّخَذَ قَومُ موسىٰ مِن بَعدِهِ مِن حُلِيِّهِم عِجلًا جَسَدًا لَهُ خُوارٌ ۚ أَلَم يَرَوا أَنَّهُ لا يُكَلِّمُهُم وَلا يَهديهِم سَبيلًا ۘ اتَّخَذوهُ وَكانوا ظٰلِمينَ(148)
In the absence of Moses his people prepared the image of a calf from their ornaments, which gave out the mooing of a cow. Yet they did not see it could neither speak to them nor guide them to the right path. Even then they took it (for a deity) and did wrong.(148)
وَلَمّا سُقِطَ فى أَيديهِم وَرَأَوا أَنَّهُم قَد ضَلّوا قالوا لَئِن لَم يَرحَمنا رَبُّنا وَيَغفِر لَنا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(149)
Then they were filled with remorse and saw that they had erred and said: "If our Lord does not forgive us we will surely be lost."(149)
وَلَمّا رَجَعَ موسىٰ إِلىٰ قَومِهِ غَضبٰنَ أَسِفًا قالَ بِئسَما خَلَفتُمونى مِن بَعدى ۖ أَعَجِلتُم أَمرَ رَبِّكُم ۖ وَأَلقَى الأَلواحَ وَأَخَذَ بِرَأسِ أَخيهِ يَجُرُّهُ إِلَيهِ ۚ قالَ ابنَ أُمَّ إِنَّ القَومَ استَضعَفونى وَكادوا يَقتُلونَنى فَلا تُشمِت بِىَ الأَعداءَ وَلا تَجعَلنى مَعَ القَومِ الظّٰلِمينَ(150)
When Moses returned to his people, indignant and grieved, he said: "How wickedly you behaved in my absence. Why must you hasten the decree of your Lord?" And he cast aside the tablets, and pulled his brother by the hair. "O son of my mother," said (Aaron), "these people took advantage of my weakness and almost killed me. Do not let my enemies rejoice at my plight, and do not put me down among transgressors."(150)
قالَ رَبِّ اغفِر لى وَلِأَخى وَأَدخِلنا فى رَحمَتِكَ ۖ وَأَنتَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(151)
(Moses) said: "O Lord, forgive me and my brother, and admit us to Your grace, for You are the most compassionate of all."(151)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ اتَّخَذُوا العِجلَ سَيَنالُهُم غَضَبٌ مِن رَبِّهِم وَذِلَّةٌ فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى المُفتَرينَ(152)
Surely those who have taken the calf (as a god) will suffer the anger of their Lord, and disgrace in the world. That is how We requite those who fabricate lies.(152)
وَالَّذينَ عَمِلُوا السَّيِّـٔاتِ ثُمَّ تابوا مِن بَعدِها وَءامَنوا إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِن بَعدِها لَغَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(153)
Yet those who do wrong, then repent and believe, are forgiven, for your Lord is forgiving and kind.(153)
وَلَمّا سَكَتَ عَن موسَى الغَضَبُ أَخَذَ الأَلواحَ ۖ وَفى نُسخَتِها هُدًى وَرَحمَةٌ لِلَّذينَ هُم لِرَبِّهِم يَرهَبونَ(154)
When his anger subsided Moses picked up the tablets. Inscribed on them was guidance and grace for those who fear their Lord.(154)
وَاختارَ موسىٰ قَومَهُ سَبعينَ رَجُلًا لِميقٰتِنا ۖ فَلَمّا أَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ قالَ رَبِّ لَو شِئتَ أَهلَكتَهُم مِن قَبلُ وَإِيّٰىَ ۖ أَتُهلِكُنا بِما فَعَلَ السُّفَهاءُ مِنّا ۖ إِن هِىَ إِلّا فِتنَتُكَ تُضِلُّ بِها مَن تَشاءُ وَتَهدى مَن تَشاءُ ۖ أَنتَ وَلِيُّنا فَاغفِر لَنا وَارحَمنا ۖ وَأَنتَ خَيرُ الغٰفِرينَ(155)
Moses chose seventy of his people for the appointment (on Mount Sinai). When they arrived they were seized by a tremor. (Moses) said: "O Lord, if You had so pleased You could have annihilated them and me before this. Will You destroy us for something the foolish among us have done? This is but a trial from You whereby You will lead whom You will astray and guide whom You please. You are our saviour, so forgive us and have mercy on us, for You are the best of forgivers.(155)
۞ وَاكتُب لَنا فى هٰذِهِ الدُّنيا حَسَنَةً وَفِى الءاخِرَةِ إِنّا هُدنا إِلَيكَ ۚ قالَ عَذابى أُصيبُ بِهِ مَن أَشاءُ ۖ وَرَحمَتى وَسِعَت كُلَّ شَيءٍ ۚ فَسَأَكتُبُها لِلَّذينَ يَتَّقونَ وَيُؤتونَ الزَّكوٰةَ وَالَّذينَ هُم بِـٔايٰتِنا يُؤمِنونَ(156)
Enjoin for us good in the world, and good in the world to come. We turn to You alone." And the Lord said: "I punish only those whom I will, but My mercy enfolds everything. I shall enjoin it for those who take heed for themselves, who pay the zakat and believe in My signs,(156)
الَّذينَ يَتَّبِعونَ الرَّسولَ النَّبِىَّ الأُمِّىَّ الَّذى يَجِدونَهُ مَكتوبًا عِندَهُم فِى التَّورىٰةِ وَالإِنجيلِ يَأمُرُهُم بِالمَعروفِ وَيَنهىٰهُم عَنِ المُنكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبٰتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيهِمُ الخَبٰئِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنهُم إِصرَهُم وَالأَغلٰلَ الَّتى كانَت عَلَيهِم ۚ فَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا بِهِ وَعَزَّروهُ وَنَصَروهُ وَاتَّبَعُوا النّورَ الَّذى أُنزِلَ مَعَهُ ۙ أُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ(157)
Who follow the messenger, the gentile Prophet, described in the Torah and the Gospel, who bids things noble and forbids things vile, makes lawful what is clean, and prohibits what is foul, who relieves them of their burdens, and the yoke that lies upon them. Those who believe and honour and help him, and follow the light sent with him, are those who will attain their goal."(157)
قُل يٰأَيُّهَا النّاسُ إِنّى رَسولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيكُم جَميعًا الَّذى لَهُ مُلكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۖ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ يُحيۦ وَيُميتُ ۖ فَـٔامِنوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسولِهِ النَّبِىِّ الأُمِّىِّ الَّذى يُؤمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَكَلِمٰتِهِ وَاتَّبِعوهُ لَعَلَّكُم تَهتَدونَ(158)
Say: "O men, I am verily the apostle of God to you all. His whose kingdom extends over the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He, the giver of life and death. So believe in God and the messenger, the gentile Prophet, sent by Him, who believes in God and His messages. Obey him; you may haply be guided aright."(158)
وَمِن قَومِ موسىٰ أُمَّةٌ يَهدونَ بِالحَقِّ وَبِهِ يَعدِلونَ(159)
Among the people of Moses is a section that shows the way to the truth, and deals justly in accordance with it.(159)
وَقَطَّعنٰهُمُ اثنَتَى عَشرَةَ أَسباطًا أُمَمًا ۚ وَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ إِذِ استَسقىٰهُ قَومُهُ أَنِ اضرِب بِعَصاكَ الحَجَرَ ۖ فَانبَجَسَت مِنهُ اثنَتا عَشرَةَ عَينًا ۖ قَد عَلِمَ كُلُّ أُناسٍ مَشرَبَهُم ۚ وَظَلَّلنا عَلَيهِمُ الغَمٰمَ وَأَنزَلنا عَلَيهِمُ المَنَّ وَالسَّلوىٰ ۖ كُلوا مِن طَيِّبٰتِ ما رَزَقنٰكُم ۚ وَما ظَلَمونا وَلٰكِن كانوا أَنفُسَهُم يَظلِمونَ(160)
We divided them into twelve (different) tribes. When his people asked for water, We said to Moses: "Strike the rock with your staff;" and behold, twelve springs of water gushed forth, so that each of the tribes had a place of its own to drink; and We made the clouds spread shade over them and sent for them manna and quails (and said): "Eat of the good things We have provided for you." But (by disobeying) they did not harm Us, they harmed themselves.(160)
وَإِذ قيلَ لَهُمُ اسكُنوا هٰذِهِ القَريَةَ وَكُلوا مِنها حَيثُ شِئتُم وَقولوا حِطَّةٌ وَادخُلُوا البابَ سُجَّدًا نَغفِر لَكُم خَطيـٰٔتِكُم ۚ سَنَزيدُ المُحسِنينَ(161)
And when it was said to them: "Live in this land and eat of its produce wheresoever you like, and ask for remission of your sins, but pass through the gates with submission (and not pride), We shall forgive your trespasses, and give to those who are righteous abundance,"(161)
فَبَدَّلَ الَّذينَ ظَلَموا مِنهُم قَولًا غَيرَ الَّذى قيلَ لَهُم فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم رِجزًا مِنَ السَّماءِ بِما كانوا يَظلِمونَ(162)
The wicked among them changed and perverted the word We had spoken to a word unpronounced; so We sent from heaven retribution on them for all their wickedness.(162)
وَسـَٔلهُم عَنِ القَريَةِ الَّتى كانَت حاضِرَةَ البَحرِ إِذ يَعدونَ فِى السَّبتِ إِذ تَأتيهِم حيتانُهُم يَومَ سَبتِهِم شُرَّعًا وَيَومَ لا يَسبِتونَ ۙ لا تَأتيهِم ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نَبلوهُم بِما كانوا يَفسُقونَ(163)
Enquire of them about the town situated by the sea where, when they did not keep the Sabbath, the fish came up to the surface of the water for them; but on days other than the Sabbath the fish did not come. We tried them in this way, for they were disobedient.(163)
وَإِذ قالَت أُمَّةٌ مِنهُم لِمَ تَعِظونَ قَومًا ۙ اللَّهُ مُهلِكُهُم أَو مُعَذِّبُهُم عَذابًا شَديدًا ۖ قالوا مَعذِرَةً إِلىٰ رَبِّكُم وَلَعَلَّهُم يَتَّقونَ(164)
When a Section of them said: "Why do you admonish a people whom God is about to destroy or to punish severely?" They replied: "To clear ourselves of blame before your Lord, and that they may fear God.(164)
فَلَمّا نَسوا ما ذُكِّروا بِهِ أَنجَينَا الَّذينَ يَنهَونَ عَنِ السّوءِ وَأَخَذنَا الَّذينَ ظَلَموا بِعَذابٍ بَـٔيسٍ بِما كانوا يَفسُقونَ(165)
But when they forgot to remember the warning, We saved those who prohibited evil, but inflicted on the wicked a dreadful punishment -- requital for their disobedience.(165)
فَلَمّا عَتَوا عَن ما نُهوا عَنهُ قُلنا لَهُم كونوا قِرَدَةً خٰسِـٔينَ(166)
When they persisted in doing what they had been forbidden, We said to them: "Become (like) apes despised."(166)
وَإِذ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكَ لَيَبعَثَنَّ عَلَيهِم إِلىٰ يَومِ القِيٰمَةِ مَن يَسومُهُم سوءَ العَذابِ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَسَريعُ العِقابِ ۖ وَإِنَّهُ لَغَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(167)
And your Lord declared He would send men against them who would inflict dreadful suffering on them till the Day of Doom, for your Lord is swift in retribution, though He is certainly forgiving and kind.(167)
وَقَطَّعنٰهُم فِى الأَرضِ أُمَمًا ۖ مِنهُمُ الصّٰلِحونَ وَمِنهُم دونَ ذٰلِكَ ۖ وَبَلَونٰهُم بِالحَسَنٰتِ وَالسَّيِّـٔاتِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(168)
We dispersed them in groups over the earth, some righteous, some otherwise; and We tried them with good things and bad, that they may haply turn back.(168)
فَخَلَفَ مِن بَعدِهِم خَلفٌ وَرِثُوا الكِتٰبَ يَأخُذونَ عَرَضَ هٰذَا الأَدنىٰ وَيَقولونَ سَيُغفَرُ لَنا وَإِن يَأتِهِم عَرَضٌ مِثلُهُ يَأخُذوهُ ۚ أَلَم يُؤخَذ عَلَيهِم ميثٰقُ الكِتٰبِ أَن لا يَقولوا عَلَى اللَّهِ إِلَّا الحَقَّ وَدَرَسوا ما فيهِ ۗ وَالدّارُ الءاخِرَةُ خَيرٌ لِلَّذينَ يَتَّقونَ ۗ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ(169)
Then after them a new generation inherited the Book. They took to the things of this base world, and said: "We shall (surely) be forgiven this." Yet they will accept similar things if they came their way again. Had they not been covenanted in the Book to say nothing in the name of God but the truth? And they have read this in it. The abode of the life to come is better for those who fear God. Can they not comprehend?(169)
وَالَّذينَ يُمَسِّكونَ بِالكِتٰبِ وَأَقامُوا الصَّلوٰةَ إِنّا لا نُضيعُ أَجرَ المُصلِحينَ(170)
As for those who adhere to the Book and are firm in devotion, We shall certainly not let the wages of those who are upright to go waste.(170)
۞ وَإِذ نَتَقنَا الجَبَلَ فَوقَهُم كَأَنَّهُ ظُلَّةٌ وَظَنّوا أَنَّهُ واقِعٌ بِهِم خُذوا ما ءاتَينٰكُم بِقُوَّةٍ وَاذكُروا ما فيهِ لَعَلَّكُم تَتَّقونَ(171)
The day We shook the mountain above them like an awning, and they feared it would fall over them, (We said): "Hold fast to what We have given you, and bear in mind what is (said) therein so that you may take heed."(171)
وَإِذ أَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِن بَنى ءادَمَ مِن ظُهورِهِم ذُرِّيَّتَهُم وَأَشهَدَهُم عَلىٰ أَنفُسِهِم أَلَستُ بِرَبِّكُم ۖ قالوا بَلىٰ ۛ شَهِدنا ۛ أَن تَقولوا يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ إِنّا كُنّا عَن هٰذا غٰفِلينَ(172)
When your Lord brings forth from their loins the offspring of the children of Adam, He makes them witnesses over themselves, (and asks): "Am I not your Lord?" 'Indeed,' they reply. 'We bear witness,' -- lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "We were not aware of this;"(172)
أَو تَقولوا إِنَّما أَشرَكَ ءاباؤُنا مِن قَبلُ وَكُنّا ذُرِّيَّةً مِن بَعدِهِم ۖ أَفَتُهلِكُنا بِما فَعَلَ المُبطِلونَ(173)
Or, lest they should say: "It were our fathers who had ascribed compeers to God; we are only their offspring. Will You destroy us for the deeds of those who dealt in vanities?"(173)
وَكَذٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الءايٰتِ وَلَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(174)
That is how We explain Our signs distinctly so that they may come back (to the right path).(174)
وَاتلُ عَلَيهِم نَبَأَ الَّذى ءاتَينٰهُ ءايٰتِنا فَانسَلَخَ مِنها فَأَتبَعَهُ الشَّيطٰنُ فَكانَ مِنَ الغاوينَ(175)
Relate to them the plight of the man whom We gave Our signs, but he passed them by, so that Satan came after him, and he went astray.(175)
وَلَو شِئنا لَرَفَعنٰهُ بِها وَلٰكِنَّهُ أَخلَدَ إِلَى الأَرضِ وَاتَّبَعَ هَوىٰهُ ۚ فَمَثَلُهُ كَمَثَلِ الكَلبِ إِن تَحمِل عَلَيهِ يَلهَث أَو تَترُكهُ يَلهَث ۚ ذٰلِكَ مَثَلُ القَومِ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۚ فَاقصُصِ القَصَصَ لَعَلَّهُم يَتَفَكَّرونَ(176)
We wished to exalt him, but he loved baseness and followed his lust. His likeness is that of a dog who hangs out his tongue if you drive him away, and still hangs it out if you leave him alone. Such is the case of the people who deny Our signs. Narrate this history to them; they may haply reflect.(176)
ساءَ مَثَلًا القَومُ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَأَنفُسَهُم كانوا يَظلِمونَ(177)
Evil is the case of those who deny Our signs and wrong themselves.(177)
مَن يَهدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ المُهتَدى ۖ وَمَن يُضلِل فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الخٰسِرونَ(178)
He alone is guided whom God shows the way; and whom He leads astray is surely lost.(178)
وَلَقَد ذَرَأنا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثيرًا مِنَ الجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ ۖ لَهُم قُلوبٌ لا يَفقَهونَ بِها وَلَهُم أَعيُنٌ لا يُبصِرونَ بِها وَلَهُم ءاذانٌ لا يَسمَعونَ بِها ۚ أُولٰئِكَ كَالأَنعٰمِ بَل هُم أَضَلُّ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الغٰفِلونَ(179)
Many of the jinns and human beings have We destined for Hell, who possess hearts but do not feel, have eyes but do not see, have ears but do not hear, like cattle, even worse than them. They are people unconcerned.(179)
وَلِلَّهِ الأَسماءُ الحُسنىٰ فَادعوهُ بِها ۖ وَذَرُوا الَّذينَ يُلحِدونَ فى أَسمٰئِهِ ۚ سَيُجزَونَ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(180)
All the names of God are beautiful, so call Him by them; and leave those alone who act profanely towards His names: They will be retributed for their deeds.(180)
وَمِمَّن خَلَقنا أُمَّةٌ يَهدونَ بِالحَقِّ وَبِهِ يَعدِلونَ(181)
Yet there are among those We have created people who lead (others) to the truth, and act justly in its light(181)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا سَنَستَدرِجُهُم مِن حَيثُ لا يَعلَمونَ(182)
We shall punish those who deny Our revelations slowly in a way that they will not know.(182)
وَأُملى لَهُم ۚ إِنَّ كَيدى مَتينٌ(183)
I will just give them respite. My plan is certainly invincible.(183)
أَوَلَم يَتَفَكَّروا ۗ ما بِصاحِبِهِم مِن جِنَّةٍ ۚ إِن هُوَ إِلّا نَذيرٌ مُبينٌ(184)
Have they not bethought themselves their companion is not mad? He is only a plain admonisher.(184)
أَوَلَم يَنظُروا فى مَلَكوتِ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَما خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِن شَيءٍ وَأَن عَسىٰ أَن يَكونَ قَدِ اقتَرَبَ أَجَلُهُم ۖ فَبِأَىِّ حَديثٍ بَعدَهُ يُؤمِنونَ(185)
Have they not contemplated the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything created by God, (to educe) that perhaps their own term is drawing to a close? In what lore after this would they then believe?(185)
مَن يُضلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلا هادِىَ لَهُ ۚ وَيَذَرُهُم فى طُغيٰنِهِم يَعمَهونَ(186)
Whosoever God allows to go astray has none to show him the way, for He leaves them to wander perplexed in their wickedness.(186)
يَسـَٔلونَكَ عَنِ السّاعَةِ أَيّانَ مُرسىٰها ۖ قُل إِنَّما عِلمُها عِندَ رَبّى ۖ لا يُجَلّيها لِوَقتِها إِلّا هُوَ ۚ ثَقُلَت فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ لا تَأتيكُم إِلّا بَغتَةً ۗ يَسـَٔلونَكَ كَأَنَّكَ حَفِىٌّ عَنها ۖ قُل إِنَّما عِلمُها عِندَ اللَّهِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(187)
They ask you about the Hour: "When is its determined time?" Say: "Only my Lord has the knowledge. No one can reveal it except He. Oppressive will it be for the heavens and the earth. When it comes, it will come unawares." They ask you about it as if you were in the know. You tell them: "Only God has the knowledge." But most people do not know.(187)
قُل لا أَملِكُ لِنَفسى نَفعًا وَلا ضَرًّا إِلّا ما شاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَو كُنتُ أَعلَمُ الغَيبَ لَاستَكثَرتُ مِنَ الخَيرِ وَما مَسَّنِىَ السّوءُ ۚ إِن أَنا۠ إِلّا نَذيرٌ وَبَشيرٌ لِقَومٍ يُؤمِنونَ(188)
Tell them: "I am not master of my own gain or loss but as God may please. If I had the knowledge of the Unknown I would have enjoyed abundance of the good, and no evil would have touched me. I am only a bearer of warnings and bringer of happy news for those who believe."(188)
۞ هُوَ الَّذى خَلَقَكُم مِن نَفسٍ وٰحِدَةٍ وَجَعَلَ مِنها زَوجَها لِيَسكُنَ إِلَيها ۖ فَلَمّا تَغَشّىٰها حَمَلَت حَملًا خَفيفًا فَمَرَّت بِهِ ۖ فَلَمّا أَثقَلَت دَعَوَا اللَّهَ رَبَّهُما لَئِن ءاتَيتَنا صٰلِحًا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الشّٰكِرينَ(189)
It is He who created you from a single cell, and from it created its mate, that you may live as companions. When the man covered the woman she conceived a light burden and carried it about. And when she was heavy (with child) they prayed together to their Lord: "If You bestow a healthy son on us we shall truly be grateful."(189)
فَلَمّا ءاتىٰهُما صٰلِحًا جَعَلا لَهُ شُرَكاءَ فيما ءاتىٰهُما ۚ فَتَعٰلَى اللَّهُ عَمّا يُشرِكونَ(190)
But when they were given a healthy son, they started ascribing to other powers a share in what God had bestowed on them. But God is above what they ascribe to Him.(190)
أَيُشرِكونَ ما لا يَخلُقُ شَيـًٔا وَهُم يُخلَقونَ(191)
Do they associate those with Him who cannot create a thing, and are themselves created,(191)
وَلا يَستَطيعونَ لَهُم نَصرًا وَلا أَنفُسَهُم يَنصُرونَ(192)
Who can neither help them, nor help themselves?(192)
وَإِن تَدعوهُم إِلَى الهُدىٰ لا يَتَّبِعوكُم ۚ سَواءٌ عَلَيكُم أَدَعَوتُموهُم أَم أَنتُم صٰمِتونَ(193)
If you call them to guidance they will not follow you. It is all the same if you call them or hold your tongue.(193)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ تَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ عِبادٌ أَمثالُكُم ۖ فَادعوهُم فَليَستَجيبوا لَكُم إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(194)
Those whom you invoke besides God are created beings like you. So call on them and let them answer your call, if what you say is true.(194)
أَلَهُم أَرجُلٌ يَمشونَ بِها ۖ أَم لَهُم أَيدٍ يَبطِشونَ بِها ۖ أَم لَهُم أَعيُنٌ يُبصِرونَ بِها ۖ أَم لَهُم ءاذانٌ يَسمَعونَ بِها ۗ قُلِ ادعوا شُرَكاءَكُم ثُمَّ كيدونِ فَلا تُنظِرونِ(195)
Do they have feet to walk on, or hands to hold with, or eyes to see and ears to hear with? Say to them: "Call your compeers, and work out a plot against me, and do not give me time.(195)
إِنَّ وَلِۦِّىَ اللَّهُ الَّذى نَزَّلَ الكِتٰبَ ۖ وَهُوَ يَتَوَلَّى الصّٰلِحينَ(196)
My saviour is God who has revealed this Book; and He protects those who are upright;(196)
وَالَّذينَ تَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ لا يَستَطيعونَ نَصرَكُم وَلا أَنفُسَهُم يَنصُرونَ(197)
While those you beseech apart from Him cannot help you or even help themselves.(197)
وَإِن تَدعوهُم إِلَى الهُدىٰ لا يَسمَعوا ۖ وَتَرىٰهُم يَنظُرونَ إِلَيكَ وَهُم لا يُبصِرونَ(198)
When you call upon them for guidance, they do not hear. When you think they are looking at you, (in fact) they cannot see."(198)
خُذِ العَفوَ وَأمُر بِالعُرفِ وَأَعرِض عَنِ الجٰهِلينَ(199)
Cultivate tolerance, enjoin justice, and avoid the fools.(199)
وَإِمّا يَنزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيطٰنِ نَزغٌ فَاستَعِذ بِاللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ سَميعٌ عَليمٌ(200)
If you are instigated by the Devil to evil seek refuge in God, for God hears all and knows everything.(200)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ اتَّقَوا إِذا مَسَّهُم طٰئِفٌ مِنَ الشَّيطٰنِ تَذَكَّروا فَإِذا هُم مُبصِرونَ(201)
Verily those who fear God think of Him when assailed by the instigations of Satan, and lo! they begin to understand,(201)
وَإِخوٰنُهُم يَمُدّونَهُم فِى الغَىِّ ثُمَّ لا يُقصِرونَ(202)
Even though their (devilish) brothers would like them to continue in error, and would not desist.(202)
وَإِذا لَم تَأتِهِم بِـٔايَةٍ قالوا لَولَا اجتَبَيتَها ۚ قُل إِنَّما أَتَّبِعُ ما يوحىٰ إِلَىَّ مِن رَبّى ۚ هٰذا بَصائِرُ مِن رَبِّكُم وَهُدًى وَرَحمَةٌ لِقَومٍ يُؤمِنونَ(203)
And when you do not bring a (Qur'anic) verse to them, they say: "Why don't you make one up?" Say: "I follow only what my Lord reveals to me." These (revelations) are an evident proof from your Lord, and a guidance and grace for those who believe.(203)
وَإِذا قُرِئَ القُرءانُ فَاستَمِعوا لَهُ وَأَنصِتوا لَعَلَّكُم تُرحَمونَ(204)
When the Qur'an is recited listen to it in silence. You may perhaps be blessed.(204)
وَاذكُر رَبَّكَ فى نَفسِكَ تَضَرُّعًا وَخيفَةً وَدونَ الجَهرِ مِنَ القَولِ بِالغُدُوِّ وَالءاصالِ وَلا تَكُن مِنَ الغٰفِلينَ(205)
Meditate on your Lord inwardly with humility and trepidation, reciting His Book softly, morning and evening, and be not negligent.(205)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لا يَستَكبِرونَ عَن عِبادَتِهِ وَيُسَبِّحونَهُ وَلَهُ يَسجُدونَ ۩(206)
Verily those who are in the presence of your Lord are never too proud to worship and celebrate His praises, and bow in homage to Him'.(206)
