بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الر ۚ كِتٰبٌ أُحكِمَت ءايٰتُهُ ثُمَّ فُصِّلَت مِن لَدُن حَكيمٍ خَبيرٍ(1)
ALIF LAM RA. This is a Book whose verses are indeclinable and distinct, which comes from One who is most wise and all-knowing,(1)
أَلّا تَعبُدوا إِلَّا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّنى لَكُم مِنهُ نَذيرٌ وَبَشيرٌ(2)
(Proclaiming) that you should worship none but God. Verily I bring to you from Him a message of warning and rejoicing,(2)
وَأَنِ استَغفِروا رَبَّكُم ثُمَّ توبوا إِلَيهِ يُمَتِّعكُم مَتٰعًا حَسَنًا إِلىٰ أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى وَيُؤتِ كُلَّ ذى فَضلٍ فَضلَهُ ۖ وَإِن تَوَلَّوا فَإِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم عَذابَ يَومٍ كَبيرٍ(3)
And that you should seek His forgiveness and turn towards Him. He will bestow the best things of life on you for a time ordained, and favour those with blessings who are worthy of grace. But if you turn away, I fear the punishment of a terrible Day for you.(3)
إِلَى اللَّهِ مَرجِعُكُم ۖ وَهُوَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ(4)
To God have you to go back, and He has power over everything.(4)
أَلا إِنَّهُم يَثنونَ صُدورَهُم لِيَستَخفوا مِنهُ ۚ أَلا حينَ يَستَغشونَ ثِيابَهُم يَعلَمُ ما يُسِرّونَ وَما يُعلِنونَ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَليمٌ بِذاتِ الصُّدورِ(5)
Look, how they double up their breasts in order to hide from Him. But when they cover themselves up with their garments, He knows what they hide and what they expose. Indeed, He knows the secrets of the hearts.(5)
۞ وَما مِن دابَّةٍ فِى الأَرضِ إِلّا عَلَى اللَّهِ رِزقُها وَيَعلَمُ مُستَقَرَّها وَمُستَودَعَها ۚ كُلٌّ فى كِتٰبٍ مُبينٍ(6)
There is not a creature that moves on the earth whose nourishment is not provided by God, whose place of sojourning and depositing is not known to Him. All things conform to a manifest law.(6)
وَهُوَ الَّذى خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ فى سِتَّةِ أَيّامٍ وَكانَ عَرشُهُ عَلَى الماءِ لِيَبلُوَكُم أَيُّكُم أَحسَنُ عَمَلًا ۗ وَلَئِن قُلتَ إِنَّكُم مَبعوثونَ مِن بَعدِ المَوتِ لَيَقولَنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا إِن هٰذا إِلّا سِحرٌ مُبينٌ(7)
It is He who created the heavens and the earth In six spans, and has control over the waters (of life) so that he may bring out the best that everyone of you could do. Yet if you said to them: "You shall certainly be raised from the dead," the unbelievers will say: "This will be nothing but sorcery."(7)
وَلَئِن أَخَّرنا عَنهُمُ العَذابَ إِلىٰ أُمَّةٍ مَعدودَةٍ لَيَقولُنَّ ما يَحبِسُهُ ۗ أَلا يَومَ يَأتيهِم لَيسَ مَصروفًا عَنهُم وَحاقَ بِهِم ما كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(8)
If We defer their punishment for a certain time, they will say: "What is keeping it back?" And yet, the day it comes, they will not be able to avert it; and what they used to laugh at will encompass them.(8)
وَلَئِن أَذَقنَا الإِنسٰنَ مِنّا رَحمَةً ثُمَّ نَزَعنٰها مِنهُ إِنَّهُ لَيَـٔوسٌ كَفورٌ(9)
If We allow man to enjoy Our favours, and then take them away from him, he becomes despondent and ungrateful.(9)
وَلَئِن أَذَقنٰهُ نَعماءَ بَعدَ ضَرّاءَ مَسَّتهُ لَيَقولَنَّ ذَهَبَ السَّيِّـٔاتُ عَنّى ۚ إِنَّهُ لَفَرِحٌ فَخورٌ(10)
If We let him taste Our favours after adversity, he says: "Misfortune has left me," and begins to brag and exult,(10)
إِلَّا الَّذينَ صَبَروا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم مَغفِرَةٌ وَأَجرٌ كَبيرٌ(11)
Except those who endure with patience and do the right, who will have pardon and a great reward.(11)
فَلَعَلَّكَ تارِكٌ بَعضَ ما يوحىٰ إِلَيكَ وَضائِقٌ بِهِ صَدرُكَ أَن يَقولوا لَولا أُنزِلَ عَلَيهِ كَنزٌ أَو جاءَ مَعَهُ مَلَكٌ ۚ إِنَّما أَنتَ نَذيرٌ ۚ وَاللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ وَكيلٌ(12)
You may haply omit some of what has been revealed to you, and may be disheartened because they say: "Why was no treasure sent down to him, or an angel accompanied him?" Yet you have been sent to warn alone, for God takes care of everything.(12)
أَم يَقولونَ افتَرىٰهُ ۖ قُل فَأتوا بِعَشرِ سُوَرٍ مِثلِهِ مُفتَرَيٰتٍ وَادعوا مَنِ استَطَعتُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(13)
Do they say (of the Prophet): "He has forged (the Qur'an)?" Say: "Then bring ten Surahs like it, and call anyone except God to help you, if what you say is true."(13)
فَإِلَّم يَستَجيبوا لَكُم فَاعلَموا أَنَّما أُنزِلَ بِعِلمِ اللَّهِ وَأَن لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ ۖ فَهَل أَنتُم مُسلِمونَ(14)
If they do not answer you, then know it has been revealed with the knowledge of God, and that there is no god but He. (And say:) "Will you now submit?"(14)
مَن كانَ يُريدُ الحَيوٰةَ الدُّنيا وَزينَتَها نُوَفِّ إِلَيهِم أَعمٰلَهُم فيها وَهُم فيها لا يُبخَسونَ(15)
To those who desire the life of this world and its many allures, We shall pay them in full for their acts herein and will not withold any thing.(15)
أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ لَيسَ لَهُم فِى الءاخِرَةِ إِلَّا النّارُ ۖ وَحَبِطَ ما صَنَعوا فيها وَبٰطِلٌ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(16)
Yet these are the people for whom there is nothing but Fire in the world to come. Fruitless will be what they have fashioned, and whatever they have done will perish.(16)
أَفَمَن كانَ عَلىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبِّهِ وَيَتلوهُ شاهِدٌ مِنهُ وَمِن قَبلِهِ كِتٰبُ موسىٰ إِمامًا وَرَحمَةً ۚ أُولٰئِكَ يُؤمِنونَ بِهِ ۚ وَمَن يَكفُر بِهِ مِنَ الأَحزابِ فَالنّارُ مَوعِدُهُ ۚ فَلا تَكُ فى مِريَةٍ مِنهُ ۚ إِنَّهُ الحَقُّ مِن رَبِّكَ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يُؤمِنونَ(17)
Will he who has a clear proof from his Lord, which acts as evidence from Him, before which the Book of Moses was a way-giver and a grace, (not believe in it)? Whoever among the partisans does not believe in it shall have Hell as the promised award. So have no doubt about it, for surely it's the truth from your Lord, though most men may not believe.(17)
وَمَن أَظلَمُ مِمَّنِ افتَرىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا ۚ أُولٰئِكَ يُعرَضونَ عَلىٰ رَبِّهِم وَيَقولُ الأَشهٰدُ هٰؤُلاءِ الَّذينَ كَذَبوا عَلىٰ رَبِّهِم ۚ أَلا لَعنَةُ اللَّهِ عَلَى الظّٰلِمينَ(18)
Who is more wicked than he who invents lies about God? Such men shall be arraigned before their Lord, and the witnesses will testify: "These are those who imputed lies to God." Beware! The scourge of God will fall on the unjust,(18)
الَّذينَ يَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَيَبغونَها عِوَجًا وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ هُم كٰفِرونَ(19)
Who obstruct others from the way of God and seek obliquity in it, and do not believe in the life to come.(19)
أُولٰئِكَ لَم يَكونوا مُعجِزينَ فِى الأَرضِ وَما كانَ لَهُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ مِن أَولِياءَ ۘ يُضٰعَفُ لَهُمُ العَذابُ ۚ ما كانوا يَستَطيعونَ السَّمعَ وَما كانوا يُبصِرونَ(20)
They shall not weaken (the power of) God on earth, nor find any other protector but God. Their punishment will be doubled, for they could neither hear nor see.(20)
أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم وَضَلَّ عَنهُم ما كانوا يَفتَرونَ(21)
They are verily those who exceeded themselves, and the (gods) they invented abandoned them.(21)
لا جَرَمَ أَنَّهُم فِى الءاخِرَةِ هُمُ الأَخسَرونَ(22)
Undoubtedly they will be losers in the life to come.(22)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَأَخبَتوا إِلىٰ رَبِّهِم أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ الجَنَّةِ ۖ هُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(23)
But those who believe and do things good, and are humble before their Lord, are men of Paradise where they will abide for ever.(23)
۞ مَثَلُ الفَريقَينِ كَالأَعمىٰ وَالأَصَمِّ وَالبَصيرِ وَالسَّميعِ ۚ هَل يَستَوِيانِ مَثَلًا ۚ أَفَلا تَذَكَّرونَ(24)
The semblance of these two groups is that of a man who is deaf and blind, and the other who can hear and see. Can they be equal? Why do you not reflect?(24)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا نوحًا إِلىٰ قَومِهِ إِنّى لَكُم نَذيرٌ مُبينٌ(25)
We sent Noah to his people (and he said): "I give you a clear warning.(25)
أَن لا تَعبُدوا إِلَّا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم عَذابَ يَومٍ أَليمٍ(26)
Do not worship anyone but God; for I fear the punishment of a dreadful day for you."(26)
فَقالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا مِن قَومِهِ ما نَرىٰكَ إِلّا بَشَرًا مِثلَنا وَما نَرىٰكَ اتَّبَعَكَ إِلَّا الَّذينَ هُم أَراذِلُنا بادِىَ الرَّأىِ وَما نَرىٰ لَكُم عَلَينا مِن فَضلٍ بَل نَظُنُّكُم كٰذِبينَ(27)
The leaders of the people who were unbelievers, replied: "We see that you are but a man like us, and see that none among us follows you but the meanest and immature of judgement, and do not see any excellence in you above us. In fact, we think you are a liar."(27)
قالَ يٰقَومِ أَرَءَيتُم إِن كُنتُ عَلىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبّى وَءاتىٰنى رَحمَةً مِن عِندِهِ فَعُمِّيَت عَلَيكُم أَنُلزِمُكُموها وَأَنتُم لَها كٰرِهونَ(28)
He said: "O my people, think. If I have a clear proof from my Lord, and He has bestowed on me His grace, though unknown to you, can we force it upon you when you are averse?(28)
وَيٰقَومِ لا أَسـَٔلُكُم عَلَيهِ مالًا ۖ إِن أَجرِىَ إِلّا عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ وَما أَنا۠ بِطارِدِ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا ۚ إِنَّهُم مُلٰقوا رَبِّهِم وَلٰكِنّى أَرىٰكُم قَومًا تَجهَلونَ(29)
I do not demand for it any wealth from you, O my people. My reward is with God. And I will not drive those away who believe. They have also to meet their Lord. But I see you are an ignorant people.(29)
وَيٰقَومِ مَن يَنصُرُنى مِنَ اللَّهِ إِن طَرَدتُهُم ۚ أَفَلا تَذَكَّرونَ(30)
O my people, who will save me from God if I drive them away? Do you not understand?(30)
وَلا أَقولُ لَكُم عِندى خَزائِنُ اللَّهِ وَلا أَعلَمُ الغَيبَ وَلا أَقولُ إِنّى مَلَكٌ وَلا أَقولُ لِلَّذينَ تَزدَرى أَعيُنُكُم لَن يُؤتِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ خَيرًا ۖ اللَّهُ أَعلَمُ بِما فى أَنفُسِهِم ۖ إِنّى إِذًا لَمِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ(31)
I say not that I have the treasures of God, or that I possess the knowledge of the unknown. I do not claim to be an angel, nor can I say that God will not bestow any good on those you disdain, for God is cognisant of what is in their hearts. If I say this, I will surely be unjust."(31)
قالوا يٰنوحُ قَد جٰدَلتَنا فَأَكثَرتَ جِدٰلَنا فَأتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(32)
They said: "O Noah, you have argued with us, and disputed at length; so bring that (retribution) you promise, if you speak the truth."(32)
قالَ إِنَّما يَأتيكُم بِهِ اللَّهُ إِن شاءَ وَما أَنتُم بِمُعجِزينَ(33)
He replied: "Only God will bring it on you if He please, and you cannot prevail against Him.(33)
وَلا يَنفَعُكُم نُصحى إِن أَرَدتُ أَن أَنصَحَ لَكُم إِن كانَ اللَّهُ يُريدُ أَن يُغوِيَكُم ۚ هُوَ رَبُّكُم وَإِلَيهِ تُرجَعونَ(34)
Even if I wish to advise you aright, my counsel will not profit you if God intend that you go astray, for He is your Lord and to Him you will return."(34)
أَم يَقولونَ افتَرىٰهُ ۖ قُل إِنِ افتَرَيتُهُ فَعَلَىَّ إِجرامى وَأَنا۠ بَريءٌ مِمّا تُجرِمونَ(35)
Do they say you have fabricated it? Tell them: "If I have fabricated it, then mine is the guilt; but I am clear of what you are guilty."(35)
وَأوحِىَ إِلىٰ نوحٍ أَنَّهُ لَن يُؤمِنَ مِن قَومِكَ إِلّا مَن قَد ءامَنَ فَلا تَبتَئِس بِما كانوا يَفعَلونَ(36)
And Noah was informed through revelation: "Apart from those who have come to believe already not one of your people is going to believe. So grieve not for what they are doing.(36)
وَاصنَعِ الفُلكَ بِأَعيُنِنا وَوَحيِنا وَلا تُخٰطِبنى فِى الَّذينَ ظَلَموا ۚ إِنَّهُم مُغرَقونَ(37)
Build an ark under Our eye and as We instruct. Do not plead for those who have been wicked, for they shall certainly be drowned."(37)
وَيَصنَعُ الفُلكَ وَكُلَّما مَرَّ عَلَيهِ مَلَأٌ مِن قَومِهِ سَخِروا مِنهُ ۚ قالَ إِن تَسخَروا مِنّا فَإِنّا نَسخَرُ مِنكُم كَما تَسخَرونَ(38)
So he built the ark; and when groups of his people passed by him, they scoffed at him. He said to them: "Though you laugh at us (now), we shall laugh at you, as you are laughing at us.(38)
فَسَوفَ تَعلَمونَ مَن يَأتيهِ عَذابٌ يُخزيهِ وَيَحِلُّ عَلَيهِ عَذابٌ مُقيمٌ(39)
You will soon come to know who suffers the punishment that would put him to shame, and who suffers lasting torment."(39)
حَتّىٰ إِذا جاءَ أَمرُنا وَفارَ التَّنّورُ قُلنَا احمِل فيها مِن كُلٍّ زَوجَينِ اثنَينِ وَأَهلَكَ إِلّا مَن سَبَقَ عَلَيهِ القَولُ وَمَن ءامَنَ ۚ وَما ءامَنَ مَعَهُ إِلّا قَليلٌ(40)
When Our command was issued and the waters gushed forth from the source, We said: "Take into (the ark) a pair of every species, and members of your family other than those against whom the sentence has been passed already, and those who come to believe." But only a few believed in him.(40)
۞ وَقالَ اركَبوا فيها بِسمِ اللَّهِ مَجر۪ىٰها وَمُرسىٰها ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى لَغَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(41)
And (Noah) said: "Embark. In the name of God be its course and mooring. My Lord is surely forgiving and kind."(41)
وَهِىَ تَجرى بِهِم فى مَوجٍ كَالجِبالِ وَنادىٰ نوحٌ ابنَهُ وَكانَ فى مَعزِلٍ يٰبُنَىَّ اركَب مَعَنا وَلا تَكُن مَعَ الكٰفِرينَ(42)
It sailed on waves like mountains (high), and Noah called to his son who was separated from him: "Embark with us, O my son, and be not one of those who do not believe."(42)
قالَ سَـٔاوى إِلىٰ جَبَلٍ يَعصِمُنى مِنَ الماءِ ۚ قالَ لا عاصِمَ اليَومَ مِن أَمرِ اللَّهِ إِلّا مَن رَحِمَ ۚ وَحالَ بَينَهُمَا المَوجُ فَكانَ مِنَ المُغرَقينَ(43)
"I shall go up a mountain," he said, "which will keep me from the water." "There is no getting away," said Noah, "from the decree of God today, except for those on whom be His mercy." And a wave came between them, and he was among those who were drowned.(43)
وَقيلَ يٰأَرضُ ابلَعى ماءَكِ وَيٰسَماءُ أَقلِعى وَغيضَ الماءُ وَقُضِىَ الأَمرُ وَاستَوَت عَلَى الجودِىِّ ۖ وَقيلَ بُعدًا لِلقَومِ الظّٰلِمينَ(44)
Then it was said: "O earth, swallow back your water; and, O sky, desist." And the water subsided, and the decree was accomplished. The ark came to rest on Judi (Mount Ararat), and it was said: "Away with the cursed people!"(44)
وَنادىٰ نوحٌ رَبَّهُ فَقالَ رَبِّ إِنَّ ابنى مِن أَهلى وَإِنَّ وَعدَكَ الحَقُّ وَأَنتَ أَحكَمُ الحٰكِمينَ(45)
Noah called on his Lord and said: "O Lord, my son is surely a member of my family, and verily Your promise is true, as You are the most just of all judges."(45)
قالَ يٰنوحُ إِنَّهُ لَيسَ مِن أَهلِكَ ۖ إِنَّهُ عَمَلٌ غَيرُ صٰلِحٍ ۖ فَلا تَسـَٔلنِ ما لَيسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلمٌ ۖ إِنّى أَعِظُكَ أَن تَكونَ مِنَ الجٰهِلينَ(46)
"O Noah", He answered, "truly he is not of your family. He is surely the outcome of an unrighteous act. So ask Me not of what you do not know. I warn you not to be one of the ignorant."(46)
قالَ رَبِّ إِنّى أَعوذُ بِكَ أَن أَسـَٔلَكَ ما لَيسَ لى بِهِ عِلمٌ ۖ وَإِلّا تَغفِر لى وَتَرحَمنى أَكُن مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(47)
"Preserve me, O Lord," said (Noah), "from asking You that of which I have no knowledge. If You do not forgive me and have mercy on me I shall be among those who perish."(47)
قيلَ يٰنوحُ اهبِط بِسَلٰمٍ مِنّا وَبَرَكٰتٍ عَلَيكَ وَعَلىٰ أُمَمٍ مِمَّن مَعَكَ ۚ وَأُمَمٌ سَنُمَتِّعُهُم ثُمَّ يَمَسُّهُم مِنّا عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(48)
(And the Lord) said: "O Noah, disembark with peace and safety from Us and blessings on you and the people with you. As for some (of them), We shall bestow advantages for a time, then send a grievous punishment on them."(48)
تِلكَ مِن أَنباءِ الغَيبِ نوحيها إِلَيكَ ۖ ما كُنتَ تَعلَمُها أَنتَ وَلا قَومُكَ مِن قَبلِ هٰذا ۖ فَاصبِر ۖ إِنَّ العٰقِبَةَ لِلمُتَّقينَ(49)
This is news of the Unknown We reveal to you, which neither you nor your people knew before. So endure with patience. The future is for those who keep away from evil and follow the straight path.(49)
وَإِلىٰ عادٍ أَخاهُم هودًا ۚ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۖ إِن أَنتُم إِلّا مُفتَرونَ(50)
We sent to the people of 'Ad their brother Hud, who said: "O my people, worship God; you have no other god but He. (As for the idols,) you are only inventing lies.(50)
يٰقَومِ لا أَسـَٔلُكُم عَلَيهِ أَجرًا ۖ إِن أَجرِىَ إِلّا عَلَى الَّذى فَطَرَنى ۚ أَفَلا تَعقِلونَ(51)
O my people, I ask no recompense of you for it: My reward is with Him who created me. Will you not, therefore, understand?(51)
وَيٰقَومِ استَغفِروا رَبَّكُم ثُمَّ توبوا إِلَيهِ يُرسِلِ السَّماءَ عَلَيكُم مِدرارًا وَيَزِدكُم قُوَّةً إِلىٰ قُوَّتِكُم وَلا تَتَوَلَّوا مُجرِمينَ(52)
O my people, beg your Lord to forgive you, and turn to Him in repentance. He will send down rain in torrents for you from the shies, and give you added strength. So do not turn away from Him as sinners."(52)
قالوا يٰهودُ ما جِئتَنا بِبَيِّنَةٍ وَما نَحنُ بِتارِكى ءالِهَتِنا عَن قَولِكَ وَما نَحنُ لَكَ بِمُؤمِنينَ(53)
They said: "O Hud, you have come to us with no proofs. We shall not abandon our gods because you say so, nor believe in you.(53)
إِن نَقولُ إِلَّا اعتَرىٰكَ بَعضُ ءالِهَتِنا بِسوءٍ ۗ قالَ إِنّى أُشهِدُ اللَّهَ وَاشهَدوا أَنّى بَريءٌ مِمّا تُشرِكونَ(54)
All we can say is that some of our gods have smitten you with evil." He replied:" I call God to witness, and you be witness too, that I am clear of what you associate (in your affairs)(54)
مِن دونِهِ ۖ فَكيدونى جَميعًا ثُمَّ لا تُنظِرونِ(55)
Apart from Him. Contrive against me as much as you like, and give me no respite.(55)
إِنّى تَوَكَّلتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ رَبّى وَرَبِّكُم ۚ ما مِن دابَّةٍ إِلّا هُوَ ءاخِذٌ بِناصِيَتِها ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى عَلىٰ صِرٰطٍ مُستَقيمٍ(56)
I place my trust in God who is my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature that moves on the earth who is not held by the forelock firmly by Him. Verily the way of my Lord is straight.(56)
فَإِن تَوَلَّوا فَقَد أَبلَغتُكُم ما أُرسِلتُ بِهِ إِلَيكُم ۚ وَيَستَخلِفُ رَبّى قَومًا غَيرَكُم وَلا تَضُرّونَهُ شَيـًٔا ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ حَفيظٌ(57)
If you turn away, then (remember) I have delivered to you the message I was sent with. My Lord will put other people in your place, and you will not be able to prevail against Him. Indeed my Lord keeps a watch over all things."(57)
وَلَمّا جاءَ أَمرُنا نَجَّينا هودًا وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَهُ بِرَحمَةٍ مِنّا وَنَجَّينٰهُم مِن عَذابٍ غَليظٍ(58)
So, when Our command was issued We rescued Hud by Our grace, and those who believed, with him, and saved them from a dreadful doom.(58)
وَتِلكَ عادٌ ۖ جَحَدوا بِـٔايٰتِ رَبِّهِم وَعَصَوا رُسُلَهُ وَاتَّبَعوا أَمرَ كُلِّ جَبّارٍ عَنيدٍ(59)
These were the people of 'Ad who denied the word of their Lord and rebelled against His apostles, and followed the bidding of every perverse tyrant.(59)
وَأُتبِعوا فى هٰذِهِ الدُّنيا لَعنَةً وَيَومَ القِيٰمَةِ ۗ أَلا إِنَّ عادًا كَفَروا رَبَّهُم ۗ أَلا بُعدًا لِعادٍ قَومِ هودٍ(60)
So they were accursed in the world, and they will be damned on the Day of Doom. Beware! The 'Ad turned away from their Lord.(60)
۞ وَإِلىٰ ثَمودَ أَخاهُم صٰلِحًا ۚ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۖ هُوَ أَنشَأَكُم مِنَ الأَرضِ وَاستَعمَرَكُم فيها فَاستَغفِروهُ ثُمَّ توبوا إِلَيهِ ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى قَريبٌ مُجيبٌ(61)
Be warned! Accursed are the people of 'Ad who were Hud's. To Thamud We Sent their brother Saleh. "O my people," he said, "worship God; you have no other god but He. It is He who raised you from the earth and settled you upon it. So beg your Lord to forgive you, and turn to Him in repentance. Surely my Lord is near and answers."(61)
قالوا يٰصٰلِحُ قَد كُنتَ فينا مَرجُوًّا قَبلَ هٰذا ۖ أَتَنهىٰنا أَن نَعبُدَ ما يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُنا وَإِنَّنا لَفى شَكٍّ مِمّا تَدعونا إِلَيهِ مُريبٍ(62)
They said: "O Saleh, we had placed our hopes in you, but you forbid us from worshipping that which our fathers worshipped, and we are suspicious of what you are calling us to."(62)
قالَ يٰقَومِ أَرَءَيتُم إِن كُنتُ عَلىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبّى وَءاتىٰنى مِنهُ رَحمَةً فَمَن يَنصُرُنى مِنَ اللَّهِ إِن عَصَيتُهُ ۖ فَما تَزيدونَنى غَيرَ تَخسيرٍ(63)
He said: "O my people, have you considered that if my Lord has clearly shown me the way, and I have His blessings too, who will save me then from God if I disobey? You will only add to my ruin.(63)
وَيٰقَومِ هٰذِهِ ناقَةُ اللَّهِ لَكُم ءايَةً فَذَروها تَأكُل فى أَرضِ اللَّهِ وَلا تَمَسّوها بِسوءٍ فَيَأخُذَكُم عَذابٌ قَريبٌ(64)
O my people, this she-camel of God is a token for you. So leave her alone to graze on God's earth, and do not molest her, otherwise the swiftest punishment would befall you."(64)
فَعَقَروها فَقالَ تَمَتَّعوا فى دارِكُم ثَلٰثَةَ أَيّامٍ ۖ ذٰلِكَ وَعدٌ غَيرُ مَكذوبٍ(65)
But they hamstrung her. Then (Saleh) said: "You have but three days to enjoy life in your homes. Infallible is this promise.(65)
فَلَمّا جاءَ أَمرُنا نَجَّينا صٰلِحًا وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَهُ بِرَحمَةٍ مِنّا وَمِن خِزىِ يَومِئِذٍ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ القَوِىُّ العَزيزُ(66)
So, when Our command (of punishment) came We delivered Saleh by Our grace, and those who believed, with him, from the disgrace of that day. Verily your Lord is mighty and powerful.(66)
وَأَخَذَ الَّذينَ ظَلَمُوا الصَّيحَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دِيٰرِهِم جٰثِمينَ(67)
The sinners were seized by a blast from heaven, and lay overturned in their homes in the morning,(67)
كَأَن لَم يَغنَوا فيها ۗ أَلا إِنَّ ثَمودَا۟ كَفَروا رَبَّهُم ۗ أَلا بُعدًا لِثَمودَ(68)
As though they had never lived there at all. Beware! The people of Thamud turned away from their Lord. Beware! Accursed are the people of Thamud.(68)
وَلَقَد جاءَت رُسُلُنا إِبرٰهيمَ بِالبُشرىٰ قالوا سَلٰمًا ۖ قالَ سَلٰمٌ ۖ فَما لَبِثَ أَن جاءَ بِعِجلٍ حَنيذٍ(69)
Our angels came to Abraham with good news, and said: "Peace on you. "Peace on you too," said Abraham, and hastened to bring a roasted calf.(69)
فَلَمّا رَءا أَيدِيَهُم لا تَصِلُ إِلَيهِ نَكِرَهُم وَأَوجَسَ مِنهُم خيفَةً ۚ قالوا لا تَخَف إِنّا أُرسِلنا إِلىٰ قَومِ لوطٍ(70)
When they did not stretch their hands towards it he became suspicious and afraid of them. They said: "Do not be afraid. We have been sent to the people of Lot."(70)
وَامرَأَتُهُ قائِمَةٌ فَضَحِكَت فَبَشَّرنٰها بِإِسحٰقَ وَمِن وَراءِ إِسحٰقَ يَعقوبَ(71)
His wife who stood near, laughed as We gave her the good news of Isaac, and after Isaac of Jacob.(71)
قالَت يٰوَيلَتىٰ ءَأَلِدُ وَأَنا۠ عَجوزٌ وَهٰذا بَعلى شَيخًا ۖ إِنَّ هٰذا لَشَيءٌ عَجيبٌ(72)
She said: "Woe betide me! Will I give birth when I am old and this my husband be aged? This is indeed surprising!"(72)
قالوا أَتَعجَبينَ مِن أَمرِ اللَّهِ ۖ رَحمَتُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكٰتُهُ عَلَيكُم أَهلَ البَيتِ ۚ إِنَّهُ حَميدٌ مَجيدٌ(73)
"Why are you surprised at the command of God? God's mercy and blessings be upon you, O members of this household," they said. "Verily He is worthy of praise and glory."(73)
فَلَمّا ذَهَبَ عَن إِبرٰهيمَ الرَّوعُ وَجاءَتهُ البُشرىٰ يُجٰدِلُنا فى قَومِ لوطٍ(74)
When Abraham's fear was dispelled, and the good news had come to him, he pleaded for the people of Lot with Us.(74)
إِنَّ إِبرٰهيمَ لَحَليمٌ أَوّٰهٌ مُنيبٌ(75)
Abraham was kind, compassionate, and penitent.(75)
يٰإِبرٰهيمُ أَعرِض عَن هٰذا ۖ إِنَّهُ قَد جاءَ أَمرُ رَبِّكَ ۖ وَإِنَّهُم ءاتيهِم عَذابٌ غَيرُ مَردودٍ(76)
"Desist from pleading, O Abraham," (they said). "Your Lord's command has verily been issued, and a punishment that cannot be averted is bound to fall on them."(76)
وَلَمّا جاءَت رُسُلُنا لوطًا سيءَ بِهِم وَضاقَ بِهِم ذَرعًا وَقالَ هٰذا يَومٌ عَصيبٌ(77)
So when Our angels came to Lot, he grieved for them, and felt powerless to help them, and said: "This is a day of sorrow.(77)
وَجاءَهُ قَومُهُ يُهرَعونَ إِلَيهِ وَمِن قَبلُ كانوا يَعمَلونَ السَّيِّـٔاتِ ۚ قالَ يٰقَومِ هٰؤُلاءِ بَناتى هُنَّ أَطهَرُ لَكُم ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلا تُخزونِ فى ضَيفى ۖ أَلَيسَ مِنكُم رَجُلٌ رَشيدٌ(78)
His people came excited to him. They were addicted to sin already. Said (Lot): "O my people, these daughters of mine are cleaner (and lawful) for you. Have fear of God, and do not shame me before my guests. Is there no man of discernment among you?"(78)
قالوا لَقَد عَلِمتَ ما لَنا فى بَناتِكَ مِن حَقٍّ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَعلَمُ ما نُريدُ(79)
They said: "You know we have no need for your daughters, and know well what we want."(79)
قالَ لَو أَنَّ لى بِكُم قُوَّةً أَو ءاوى إِلىٰ رُكنٍ شَديدٍ(80)
"I wish I had the power to resist you," said (Lot), "or powerful support."(80)
قالوا يٰلوطُ إِنّا رُسُلُ رَبِّكَ لَن يَصِلوا إِلَيكَ ۖ فَأَسرِ بِأَهلِكَ بِقِطعٍ مِنَ الَّيلِ وَلا يَلتَفِت مِنكُم أَحَدٌ إِلَّا امرَأَتَكَ ۖ إِنَّهُ مُصيبُها ما أَصابَهُم ۚ إِنَّ مَوعِدَهُمُ الصُّبحُ ۚ أَلَيسَ الصُّبحُ بِقَريبٍ(81)
(The angels) said: "O Lot, we have verily been sent by your Lord. They will never be able to harm you. So, leave late at night with your family, and none of you should turn back to look; but your wife will suffer (the fate) they are going to suffer. Their hour of doom is in the morning: Is not the morning nigh?"(81)
فَلَمّا جاءَ أَمرُنا جَعَلنا عٰلِيَها سافِلَها وَأَمطَرنا عَلَيها حِجارَةً مِن سِجّيلٍ مَنضودٍ(82)
So when the decreed moment arrived, We turned the habitations upside down, and rained upon them stones of hardened lava in quick succession,(82)
مُسَوَّمَةً عِندَ رَبِّكَ ۖ وَما هِىَ مِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ بِبَعيدٍ(83)
Impressed with (the signs) of your Lord. And such (punishment) is not far for the (other) transgressers.(83)
۞ وَإِلىٰ مَديَنَ أَخاهُم شُعَيبًا ۚ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۖ وَلا تَنقُصُوا المِكيالَ وَالميزانَ ۚ إِنّى أَرىٰكُم بِخَيرٍ وَإِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم عَذابَ يَومٍ مُحيطٍ(84)
We sent to Midian their brother Shu'aib. He said: "O my people, worship God; you have no other god but He. So do not give in short measure nor underweigh. I see you are prosperous, but I fear the doom of an overwhelming Day for you.(84)
وَيٰقَومِ أَوفُوا المِكيالَ وَالميزانَ بِالقِسطِ ۖ وَلا تَبخَسُوا النّاسَ أَشياءَهُم وَلا تَعثَوا فِى الأَرضِ مُفسِدينَ(85)
So, O my people, weigh and measure with justness, and do not withhold things due to men, and do not spread corruption in the land, despoiling it.(85)
بَقِيَّتُ اللَّهِ خَيرٌ لَكُم إِن كُنتُم مُؤمِنينَ ۚ وَما أَنا۠ عَلَيكُم بِحَفيظٍ(86)
That which is left to you by God is better, if you are true believers; yet I am not a warden over you."(86)
قالوا يٰشُعَيبُ أَصَلوٰتُكَ تَأمُرُكَ أَن نَترُكَ ما يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُنا أَو أَن نَفعَلَ فى أَموٰلِنا ما نَشٰؤُا۟ ۖ إِنَّكَ لَأَنتَ الحَليمُ الرَّشيدُ(87)
They said: "O Shu'aib, does your piety teach that we should abandon what our fathers worshipped, or desist from doing what we like with our goods? How gracious a man of discernment you are indeed!"(87)
قالَ يٰقَومِ أَرَءَيتُم إِن كُنتُ عَلىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبّى وَرَزَقَنى مِنهُ رِزقًا حَسَنًا ۚ وَما أُريدُ أَن أُخالِفَكُم إِلىٰ ما أَنهىٰكُم عَنهُ ۚ إِن أُريدُ إِلَّا الإِصلٰحَ مَا استَطَعتُ ۚ وَما تَوفيقى إِلّا بِاللَّهِ ۚ عَلَيهِ تَوَكَّلتُ وَإِلَيهِ أُنيبُ(88)
He said: "O my people, think. I have a clear sign from my Lord, who has also given me a goodly provision, and I do not wish for myself what I forbid you: I only wish to reform you as best I can. My success is from God alone. In Him I have placed my trust, and to Him I turn.(88)
وَيٰقَومِ لا يَجرِمَنَّكُم شِقاقى أَن يُصيبَكُم مِثلُ ما أَصابَ قَومَ نوحٍ أَو قَومَ هودٍ أَو قَومَ صٰلِحٍ ۚ وَما قَومُ لوطٍ مِنكُم بِبَعيدٍ(89)
"O my people (I fear) lest your opposition to me should bring you the like of what befell the people of Noah or Hud or Saleh; and the people of Lot are not distant from you.(89)
وَاستَغفِروا رَبَّكُم ثُمَّ توبوا إِلَيهِ ۚ إِنَّ رَبّى رَحيمٌ وَدودٌ(90)
"Beg your Lord to forgive you, and turn to Him. Indeed my Lord is compassionate and loving."(90)
قالوا يٰشُعَيبُ ما نَفقَهُ كَثيرًا مِمّا تَقولُ وَإِنّا لَنَرىٰكَ فينا ضَعيفًا ۖ وَلَولا رَهطُكَ لَرَجَمنٰكَ ۖ وَما أَنتَ عَلَينا بِعَزيزٍ(91)
They said: "O Shu'aib, much of what you say is meaningless to us, and then (for sure) you are powerless among us. But for your clan we would have stoned you to death. You have no power over us.(91)
قالَ يٰقَومِ أَرَهطى أَعَزُّ عَلَيكُم مِنَ اللَّهِ وَاتَّخَذتُموهُ وَراءَكُم ظِهرِيًّا ۖ إِنَّ رَبّى بِما تَعمَلونَ مُحيطٌ(92)
He said: "My clan seems mightier to you than God whom you neglect and push behind your backs. Surely what you do is within the power of my Lord.(92)
وَيٰقَومِ اعمَلوا عَلىٰ مَكانَتِكُم إِنّى عٰمِلٌ ۖ سَوفَ تَعلَمونَ مَن يَأتيهِ عَذابٌ يُخزيهِ وَمَن هُوَ كٰذِبٌ ۖ وَارتَقِبوا إِنّى مَعَكُم رَقيبٌ(93)
Do on your part what you can, O people, I will do what I will. You will come to know who suffers the punishment that would put him to shame, and who is the liar. So watch; I am watching with you."(93)
وَلَمّا جاءَ أَمرُنا نَجَّينا شُعَيبًا وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَهُ بِرَحمَةٍ مِنّا وَأَخَذَتِ الَّذينَ ظَلَمُوا الصَّيحَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دِيٰرِهِم جٰثِمينَ(94)
And when Our word came to pass, We rescued Shu'aib and those who believed, with him, by Our grace, but those who were wicked were seized by a punishment from heaven, and lay overturned in their homes in the morning.(94)
كَأَن لَم يَغنَوا فيها ۗ أَلا بُعدًا لِمَديَنَ كَما بَعِدَت ثَمودُ(95)
As though they had not dwelt there at all. Beware! Condemmed were the people of Midian as those of Thamud had been before them!(95)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا وَسُلطٰنٍ مُبينٍ(96)
We sent Moses with Our signs and full authority(96)
إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِ فَاتَّبَعوا أَمرَ فِرعَونَ ۖ وَما أَمرُ فِرعَونَ بِرَشيدٍ(97)
To the Pharaoh and his nobles, but they followed the bidding of Pharaoh, though the bidding of Pharaoh was unrightful.(97)
يَقدُمُ قَومَهُ يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ فَأَورَدَهُمُ النّارَ ۖ وَبِئسَ الوِردُ المَورودُ(98)
He shall be at the head of his people on the Day of Resurrection, and drive them into Hell like cattle driven to water -- what an evil watering-place to reach!(98)
وَأُتبِعوا فى هٰذِهِ لَعنَةً وَيَومَ القِيٰمَةِ ۚ بِئسَ الرِّفدُ المَرفودُ(99)
Damned will they be in this world, and on the Day of Doom how evil the gift that they will receive!(99)
ذٰلِكَ مِن أَنباءِ القُرىٰ نَقُصُّهُ عَلَيكَ ۖ مِنها قائِمٌ وَحَصيدٌ(100)
These are a few accounts of settlements that We narrate to you. Some still survive, and some have been mowed down.(100)
وَما ظَلَمنٰهُم وَلٰكِن ظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم ۖ فَما أَغنَت عَنهُم ءالِهَتُهُمُ الَّتى يَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ مِن شَيءٍ لَمّا جاءَ أَمرُ رَبِّكَ ۖ وَما زادوهُم غَيرَ تَتبيبٍ(101)
We did not wrong them; they wronged themselves. When your Lord's chastisement descended upon them, their gods, on whom they called apart from God, were not of the least avail, and all they did was only to add to their destruction.(101)
وَكَذٰلِكَ أَخذُ رَبِّكَ إِذا أَخَذَ القُرىٰ وَهِىَ ظٰلِمَةٌ ۚ إِنَّ أَخذَهُ أَليمٌ شَديدٌ(102)
Such is the punishment of your Lord when He seizes human settlements in the acts of wickedness. Surely His hold is grievous and terrible.(102)
إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايَةً لِمَن خافَ عَذابَ الءاخِرَةِ ۚ ذٰلِكَ يَومٌ مَجموعٌ لَهُ النّاسُ وَذٰلِكَ يَومٌ مَشهودٌ(103)
In this surely is a sign for him who fears the torment of the Hereafter, the day when mankind will be assembled together, which will be a day when all things would become evident.(103)
وَما نُؤَخِّرُهُ إِلّا لِأَجَلٍ مَعدودٍ(104)
We are deferring it only for a time ordained.(104)
يَومَ يَأتِ لا تَكَلَّمُ نَفسٌ إِلّا بِإِذنِهِ ۚ فَمِنهُم شَقِىٌّ وَسَعيدٌ(105)
The day it comes no soul will dare say a word but by His leave; and some will be wretched, some will be blessed.(105)
فَأَمَّا الَّذينَ شَقوا فَفِى النّارِ لَهُم فيها زَفيرٌ وَشَهيقٌ(106)
And those who are doomed, will be in Hell: For them will be sighing and sobbing,(106)
خٰلِدينَ فيها ما دامَتِ السَّمٰوٰتُ وَالأَرضُ إِلّا ما شاءَ رَبُّكَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ فَعّالٌ لِما يُريدُ(107)
Where they will dwell so long as heaven and earth endure, unless your Lord will otherwise. Verily your Lord does as He wills.(107)
۞ وَأَمَّا الَّذينَ سُعِدوا فَفِى الجَنَّةِ خٰلِدينَ فيها ما دامَتِ السَّمٰوٰتُ وَالأَرضُ إِلّا ما شاءَ رَبُّكَ ۖ عَطاءً غَيرَ مَجذوذٍ(108)
Those who are blessed will be in Paradise, where they will dwell so long as heaven and earth survive, unless your Lord wills otherwise: This will be a gift uninterrupted.(108)
فَلا تَكُ فى مِريَةٍ مِمّا يَعبُدُ هٰؤُلاءِ ۚ ما يَعبُدونَ إِلّا كَما يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُهُم مِن قَبلُ ۚ وَإِنّا لَمُوَفّوهُم نَصيبَهُم غَيرَ مَنقوصٍ(109)
So, you should not entertain any doubt about those whom they worship: They only worship what their fathers had worshipped before them. We shall verily give them their meed without diminution.(109)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا موسَى الكِتٰبَ فَاختُلِفَ فيهِ ۚ وَلَولا كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَت مِن رَبِّكَ لَقُضِىَ بَينَهُم ۚ وَإِنَّهُم لَفى شَكٍّ مِنهُ مُريبٍ(110)
Verily We gave to Moses the Book, but there was disagreement about it. Had the decree of your Lord (delaying it) not been issued the matter would have been settled between them. They are still suspicious of it and in doubt.(110)
وَإِنَّ كُلًّا لَمّا لَيُوَفِّيَنَّهُم رَبُّكَ أَعمٰلَهُم ۚ إِنَّهُ بِما يَعمَلونَ خَبيرٌ(111)
Surely your Lord will reward everyone in accordance with his deeds. He is certainly aware of all they do.(111)
فَاستَقِم كَما أُمِرتَ وَمَن تابَ مَعَكَ وَلا تَطغَوا ۚ إِنَّهُ بِما تَعمَلونَ بَصيرٌ(112)
So, you and those who turned to God with you, should walk along the straight path as you have been commanded, and do not transgress, for He verily sees whatsoever you do.(112)
وَلا تَركَنوا إِلَى الَّذينَ ظَلَموا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النّارُ وَما لَكُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ مِن أَولِياءَ ثُمَّ لا تُنصَرونَ(113)
Do not lean towards the wicked, or you will be caught in the flames of Hell, and have none to befriend you other than God, nor will you be given help.(113)
وَأَقِمِ الصَّلوٰةَ طَرَفَىِ النَّهارِ وَزُلَفًا مِنَ الَّيلِ ۚ إِنَّ الحَسَنٰتِ يُذهِبنَ السَّيِّـٔاتِ ۚ ذٰلِكَ ذِكرىٰ لِلذّٰكِرينَ(114)
Stand up for the service of prayer at the two ends of day and the first watch of night. Remember that good deeds nullify the bad. This is a reminder for those who are observant.(114)
وَاصبِر فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُضيعُ أَجرَ المُحسِنينَ(115)
Be steadfast, for verily God does not let the reward of those who are upright and do good to go waste.(115)
فَلَولا كانَ مِنَ القُرونِ مِن قَبلِكُم أُولوا بَقِيَّةٍ يَنهَونَ عَنِ الفَسادِ فِى الأَرضِ إِلّا قَليلًا مِمَّن أَنجَينا مِنهُم ۗ وَاتَّبَعَ الَّذينَ ظَلَموا ما أُترِفوا فيهِ وَكانوا مُجرِمينَ(116)
If only there had been men endued with virtue in the ages before you, who could preserve men from doing evil in the world, other than the few We saved from among them. Those who were wicked followed that which made them dissolute, and became sinners.(116)
وَما كانَ رَبُّكَ لِيُهلِكَ القُرىٰ بِظُلمٍ وَأَهلُها مُصلِحونَ(117)
Your Lord would not surely destroy unjustly human habitations so long as the people are righteous.(117)
وَلَو شاءَ رَبُّكَ لَجَعَلَ النّاسَ أُمَّةً وٰحِدَةً ۖ وَلا يَزالونَ مُختَلِفينَ(118)
But if your Lord had pleased He could have made all human beings into one community of belief. But they would still have differed from one another,(118)
إِلّا مَن رَحِمَ رَبُّكَ ۚ وَلِذٰلِكَ خَلَقَهُم ۗ وَتَمَّت كَلِمَةُ رَبِّكَ لَأَملَأَنَّ جَهَنَّمَ مِنَ الجِنَّةِ وَالنّاسِ أَجمَعينَ(119)
Except those on whom your Lord had mercy for which He has created them. But fulfilled shall be the word of your Lord. "I will fill up Hell with jinns and men."(119)
وَكُلًّا نَقُصُّ عَلَيكَ مِن أَنباءِ الرُّسُلِ ما نُثَبِّتُ بِهِ فُؤادَكَ ۚ وَجاءَكَ فى هٰذِهِ الحَقُّ وَمَوعِظَةٌ وَذِكرىٰ لِلمُؤمِنينَ(120)
The histories of apostles that We relate to you are (meant) to strengthen your heart. Through them has the truth come to you, and guidance, and reminder to those who believe.(120)
وَقُل لِلَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ اعمَلوا عَلىٰ مَكانَتِكُم إِنّا عٰمِلونَ(121)
Say to the infidels. "Act as best you can, we are acting too;(121)
وَانتَظِروا إِنّا مُنتَظِرونَ(122)
And wait (for what is to come), we are also waiting (to see)."(122)
وَلِلَّهِ غَيبُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَإِلَيهِ يُرجَعُ الأَمرُ كُلُّهُ فَاعبُدهُ وَتَوَكَّل عَلَيهِ ۚ وَما رَبُّكَ بِغٰفِلٍ عَمّا تَعمَلونَ(123)
To God belong the secrets of the heavens and the earth, and all things will go back to Him. So worship Him and put your trust in Him; your Lord is not heedless of what you do.(123)
