بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ المص(1)
Lam. Mim. Sad.(1)
كِتٰبٌ أُنزِلَ إِلَيكَ فَلا يَكُن فى صَدرِكَ حَرَجٌ مِنهُ لِتُنذِرَ بِهِ وَذِكرىٰ لِلمُؤمِنينَ(2)
A book has been revealed to you, (Muhammad). You should not hesitate to convey its warning and its good advice to the believers.(2)
اتَّبِعوا ما أُنزِلَ إِلَيكُم مِن رَبِّكُم وَلا تَتَّبِعوا مِن دونِهِ أَولِياءَ ۗ قَليلًا ما تَذَكَّرونَ(3)
(People), follow whatever is revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other guardians besides Him. However, you pay very little attention (to Our words)(3)
وَكَم مِن قَريَةٍ أَهلَكنٰها فَجاءَها بَأسُنا بَيٰتًا أَو هُم قائِلونَ(4)
How many cities have We destroyed! Our wrath struck their people at night or during their midday siesta.(4)
فَما كانَ دَعوىٰهُم إِذ جاءَهُم بَأسُنا إِلّا أَن قالوا إِنّا كُنّا ظٰلِمينَ(5)
When Our wrath struck them, they could do nothing but confess to their sins.(5)
فَلَنَسـَٔلَنَّ الَّذينَ أُرسِلَ إِلَيهِم وَلَنَسـَٔلَنَّ المُرسَلينَ(6)
We will certainly question the people and the Messengers sent to them.(6)
فَلَنَقُصَّنَّ عَلَيهِم بِعِلمٍ ۖ وَما كُنّا غائِبينَ(7)
We will tell them with absolute certainty (what they had done) for We had never been absent from them (during their lifetime).(7)
وَالوَزنُ يَومَئِذٍ الحَقُّ ۚ فَمَن ثَقُلَت مَوٰزينُهُ فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ(8)
(Everyone's deeds) will certainly be weighed (and evaluated) on the Day of Judgment. Those whose good deeds weigh heavier than their bad deeds will have everlasting happiness.(8)
وَمَن خَفَّت مَوٰزينُهُ فَأُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم بِما كانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَظلِمونَ(9)
As for those whose bad deeds weigh heavier, they will lose their souls for their injustice to Our revelations.(9)
وَلَقَد مَكَّنّٰكُم فِى الأَرضِ وَجَعَلنا لَكُم فيها مَعٰيِشَ ۗ قَليلًا ما تَشكُرونَ(10)
We have made you inhabit the land and provided you with the means of sustenance. Only a few of you give thanks.(10)
وَلَقَد خَلَقنٰكُم ثُمَّ صَوَّرنٰكُم ثُمَّ قُلنا لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ اسجُدوا لِءادَمَ فَسَجَدوا إِلّا إِبليسَ لَم يَكُن مِنَ السّٰجِدينَ(11)
We created and shaped you, then told the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam. All the angels obeyed except Satan who did not.(11)
قالَ ما مَنَعَكَ أَلّا تَسجُدَ إِذ أَمَرتُكَ ۖ قالَ أَنا۠ خَيرٌ مِنهُ خَلَقتَنى مِن نارٍ وَخَلَقتَهُ مِن طينٍ(12)
God asked, "What made you disobey Me?" Satan replied, "I am better than Adam, for You have created me out of fire and Adam out of clay."(12)
قالَ فَاهبِط مِنها فَما يَكونُ لَكَ أَن تَتَكَبَّرَ فيها فَاخرُج إِنَّكَ مِنَ الصّٰغِرينَ(13)
The Lord ordered Satan to get out (of Paradise) saying, "This is no place for you to be proud. Get out of this place, for you are worthless".(13)
قالَ أَنظِرنى إِلىٰ يَومِ يُبعَثونَ(14)
Satan asked the Lord to give him respite (keep him alive) until the Day of Resurrection.(14)
قالَ إِنَّكَ مِنَ المُنظَرينَ(15)
The Lord told him, "We will grant you this respite."(15)
قالَ فَبِما أَغوَيتَنى لَأَقعُدَنَّ لَهُم صِرٰطَكَ المُستَقيمَ(16)
Then Satan said, "Because you have made me go astray, I shall certainly try to seduce people into straying from the right path.(16)
ثُمَّ لَءاتِيَنَّهُم مِن بَينِ أَيديهِم وَمِن خَلفِهِم وَعَن أَيمٰنِهِم وَعَن شَمائِلِهِم ۖ وَلا تَجِدُ أَكثَرَهُم شٰكِرينَ(17)
I shall attack them from all directions and You will not find many of them giving You thanks".(17)
قالَ اخرُج مِنها مَذءومًا مَدحورًا ۖ لَمَن تَبِعَكَ مِنهُم لَأَملَأَنَّ جَهَنَّمَ مِنكُم أَجمَعينَ(18)
The Lord told Satan, "Get out of this garden, for you are banished and despised. Hell will be filled with all of those who follow you."(18)
وَيٰـٔادَمُ اسكُن أَنتَ وَزَوجُكَ الجَنَّةَ فَكُلا مِن حَيثُ شِئتُما وَلا تَقرَبا هٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةَ فَتَكونا مِنَ الظّٰلِمينَ(19)
Then the Lord said, "Adam, stay in the garden with your spouse and eat whatever you want therein, but do not go near this tree lest you transgress".(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)
Satan tempted them to reveal that which was kept private from them and said, "Your Lord has not prohibited you (to eat the fruits of this tree) unless you want to be angels or immortal."(20)
وَقاسَمَهُما إِنّى لَكُما لَمِنَ النّٰصِحينَ(21)
Satan swore before them that he was giving them good advice.(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)
Thus, he deceitfully showed them (the tree). When they had tasted (fruits) from the tree, their private parts became revealed to them and they began to cover their private parts with leaves from the garden. Their Lord then called out to them saying, "Did I not forbid you to eat (fruits) from the tree and tell you that Satan was your sworn enemy?"(22)
قالا رَبَّنا ظَلَمنا أَنفُسَنا وَإِن لَم تَغفِر لَنا وَتَرحَمنا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(23)
They replied, "Lord, we have done injustice to our souls. If You will not forgive us and have mercy on us, we shall certainly have incurred a great loss."(23)
قالَ اهبِطوا بَعضُكُم لِبَعضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۖ وَلَكُم فِى الأَرضِ مُستَقَرٌّ وَمَتٰعٌ إِلىٰ حينٍ(24)
The Lord told them to leave the garden as each other's enemies and go to earth to dwell and benefit from the means therein for an appointed time.(24)
قالَ فيها تَحيَونَ وَفيها تَموتونَ وَمِنها تُخرَجونَ(25)
He told them that, on earth, they would live, die, and be resurrected.(25)
يٰبَنى ءادَمَ قَد أَنزَلنا عَلَيكُم لِباسًا يُوٰرى سَوءٰتِكُم وَريشًا ۖ وَلِباسُ التَّقوىٰ ذٰلِكَ خَيرٌ ۚ ذٰلِكَ مِن ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ لَعَلَّهُم يَذَّكَّرونَ(26)
Children of Adam, We have given you clothing to cover your private parts and for beauty, but the robe of piety is the best. Thus is the guidance of God so that you may take heed.(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)
Children of Adam, do not let Satan seduce you, as he caused your parents to be expelled from the garden and made them take off their clothes in order to show them their private parts. Satan and those like him see you but you do not see them. We have made the Satans as friends for those who have no faith.(27)
وَإِذا فَعَلوا فٰحِشَةً قالوا وَجَدنا عَلَيها ءاباءَنا وَاللَّهُ أَمَرَنا بِها ۗ قُل إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَأمُرُ بِالفَحشاءِ ۖ أَتَقولونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(28)
When (The faithless) commit indecent acts they say, "We found our fathers doing this and God has commanded us to do the same." (Muhammad) tell them that God does not command anyone to commit indecency. Do you speak for God, saying things of which you have no knowledge?(28)
قُل أَمَرَ رَبّى بِالقِسطِ ۖ وَأَقيموا وُجوهَكُم عِندَ كُلِّ مَسجِدٍ وَادعوهُ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ ۚ كَما بَدَأَكُم تَعودونَ(29)
Say, "My Lord has ordered me to maintain justice. (People), pay due attention (when worshipping God). Pray to Him sincerely and be devoted in your religion. Just as He gave you life, He will bring you back to life again (after you die.)"(29)
فَريقًا هَدىٰ وَفَريقًا حَقَّ عَلَيهِمُ الضَّلٰلَةُ ۗ إِنَّهُمُ اتَّخَذُوا الشَّيٰطينَ أَولِياءَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ وَيَحسَبونَ أَنَّهُم مُهتَدونَ(30)
He has guided one group (of people) and the other group go is doomed to astray; the latter group took Satan as their guardian instead of God and thought that they were rightly guided.(30)
۞ يٰبَنى ءادَمَ خُذوا زينَتَكُم عِندَ كُلِّ مَسجِدٍ وَكُلوا وَاشرَبوا وَلا تُسرِفوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ المُسرِفينَ(31)
Children of Adam, dress well when attending the mosques, eat and drink but do not be excessive for God does not love those who are excessive (in what they do).(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)
(Muhammad), ask them, "Who has made it unlawful to maintain beauty and to eat the pure foods which God has created for His servants? They are made for the believers in this world and are exclusively for them in the life hereafter." Thus do We explain Our revelations to the people who have knowledge.(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)
(Muhammad), tell them, "My Lord has only prohibited indecent acts committed in public or in secret, all sins, unjust rebellion, considering things equal to God without any heavenly authority, and speaking for God without having any knowledge (of what He has said)."(33)
وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلٌ ۖ فَإِذا جاءَ أَجَلُهُم لا يَستَأخِرونَ ساعَةً ۖ وَلا يَستَقدِمونَ(34)
All people can only live for an appointed time. When their term ends, they will not remain (alive) even for a single hour, nor will they die before the appointed time.(34)
يٰبَنى ءادَمَ إِمّا يَأتِيَنَّكُم رُسُلٌ مِنكُم يَقُصّونَ عَلَيكُم ءايٰتى ۙ فَمَنِ اتَّقىٰ وَأَصلَحَ فَلا خَوفٌ عَلَيهِم وَلا هُم يَحزَنونَ(35)
Children of Adam, when Messengers from among your own people come to you to preach My revelations, those who choose piety and reform themselves will have nothing to fear nor will they be grieved.(35)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَاستَكبَروا عَنها أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ النّارِ ۖ هُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(36)
But those who have rejected Our revelations out of pride will be the dwellers of hell fire wherein they will live forever.(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 are more unjust than those who invent falsehoods against God and reject His revelations? These will have their share (of torment) which is ordained for them and when Our (angelic) Messengers come to them to cause them to die and ask them, "Where are those whom you had been worshipping besides God?" they will reply, "We had gone astray from the path of God." Thus, they will testify against their own souls by confessing their disbelief.(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)
(On the Day of Judgment) the Lord will say to them, "Join the group of jinn and people who lived before you, in hell." Each group, on entering hell, will curse the other dwellers, until all of them are brought together therein. The last group will accuse the first saying, "Lord, they made us go astray. Therefore, double their torment in the Fire." The Lord will reply, "For everyone of you there is a double torment, but you do not know it".(38)
وَقالَت أولىٰهُم لِأُخرىٰهُم فَما كانَ لَكُم عَلَينا مِن فَضلٍ فَذوقُوا العَذابَ بِما كُنتُم تَكسِبونَ(39)
The first will then say, "You are no better than us; suffer the torment as the result of your deeds.(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)
For those who have rejected Our revelations out of pride, no door to the heavens will be opened, nor will they be admitted into Paradise until a camel passes through the eye of a sewing needle. Thus do We recompense the criminals.(40)
لَهُم مِن جَهَنَّمَ مِهادٌ وَمِن فَوقِهِم غَواشٍ ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى الظّٰلِمينَ(41)
For them, hell will be both a cradle and a blanket. Thus do We punish the unjust.(41)
وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لا نُكَلِّفُ نَفسًا إِلّا وُسعَها أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ الجَنَّةِ ۖ هُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(42)
The righteously striving believers - We do not impose on any soul that which is beyond its ability - are the dwellers of Paradise wherein they will live forever.(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)
We shall remove all grudges from their hearts. They will enjoy the flowing streams in the garden and will say, "God who guided us to this, deserves all praise. Had He not guided us, we would never have been able to find the right direction. The (angelic) Messengers of our Lord came to us with the Truth." They shall be told, 'This is the Paradise which you have inherited because of your good 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)
The people of Paradise will say to the dwellers of the fire, "We have found whatever our Lord promised has come true. Have you found whatever the Lord promised you to be true?" They will reply, "Yes, we have also found it to be true." Thereupon, someone will cry out, "God has condemned the unjust,(44)
الَّذينَ يَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَيَبغونَها عِوَجًا وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ كٰفِرونَ(45)
who prevented others from the way of God, sought to make (the path) appear crooked, and had no belief in the Day of Judgment."(45)
وَبَينَهُما حِجابٌ ۚ وَعَلَى الأَعرافِ رِجالٌ يَعرِفونَ كُلًّا بِسيمىٰهُم ۚ وَنادَوا أَصحٰبَ الجَنَّةِ أَن سَلٰمٌ عَلَيكُم ۚ لَم يَدخُلوها وَهُم يَطمَعونَ(46)
There will be a barrier between the people of Paradise and hell. There will be people on the heights who know everyone by their faces and who will say to the people of Paradise, "Peace be upon you." They hope to enter Paradise but are not yet therein.(46)
۞ وَإِذا صُرِفَت أَبصٰرُهُم تِلقاءَ أَصحٰبِ النّارِ قالوا رَبَّنا لا تَجعَلنا مَعَ القَومِ الظّٰلِمينَ(47)
When their eyes turn to the dwellers of hell, they will pray, "Lord, do not place us among the unjust."(47)
وَنادىٰ أَصحٰبُ الأَعرافِ رِجالًا يَعرِفونَهُم بِسيمىٰهُم قالوا ما أَغنىٰ عَنكُم جَمعُكُم وَما كُنتُم تَستَكبِرونَ(48)
The people of the Heights will say to those (in hell) whose faces they recognize, "Why did your supporters and your pride not help you?"(48)
أَهٰؤُلاءِ الَّذينَ أَقسَمتُم لا يَنالُهُمُ اللَّهُ بِرَحمَةٍ ۚ ادخُلُوا الجَنَّةَ لا خَوفٌ عَلَيكُم وَلا أَنتُم تَحزَنونَ(49)
They will also say, "Are these (the people of Paradise) the ones of whom you swore would receive no mercy from God?" They will continue, " People of Paradise, live therein without any fear or grief."(49)
وَنادىٰ أَصحٰبُ النّارِ أَصحٰبَ الجَنَّةِ أَن أَفيضوا عَلَينا مِنَ الماءِ أَو مِمّا رَزَقَكُمُ اللَّهُ ۚ قالوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ حَرَّمَهُما عَلَى الكٰفِرينَ(50)
The dwellers of the fire will ask the people of Paradise to give them some water or other things which God has granted to them. They will reply, "God has deprived the unbelievers of the blessings of Paradise."(50)
الَّذينَ اتَّخَذوا دينَهُم لَهوًا وَلَعِبًا وَغَرَّتهُمُ الحَيوٰةُ الدُّنيا ۚ فَاليَومَ نَنسىٰهُم كَما نَسوا لِقاءَ يَومِهِم هٰذا وَما كانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَجحَدونَ(51)
On that Day We will neglect those who were deceived by the worldly life and who treated their religion as a useless game, because they had forgotten such a day and rejected Our revelations.(51)
وَلَقَد جِئنٰهُم بِكِتٰبٍ فَصَّلنٰهُ عَلىٰ عِلمٍ هُدًى وَرَحمَةً لِقَومٍ يُؤمِنونَ(52)
We have revealed the Book of guidance and mercy to the believers and We know all of its details.(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)
(Despite the clear details of Our guidance in the Book) do they still wait for further interpretations? On the Day (of Judgment) when its interpretations will be revealed, those who had ignored its guidance will confess, saying, "The Messengers of our Lord had certainly come to us with the Truth. Will anyone intercede for us or send us back (to life) so that we would be able to act in a different manner to that which we had done before?" These people have certainly lost their souls and their evil inventions (which they had used for false excuses) will vanish.(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)
Your Lord is God who established His dominion over the Throne (of the realm) after having created the heavens and the earth in six days. He made the night darken the day which it pursues at a (considerable) speed and He made the sun and the moon submissive to His command. Is it not He Who creates and governs all things? Blessed is God, the Cherisher of the Universe.(54)
ادعوا رَبَّكُم تَضَرُّعًا وَخُفيَةً ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ المُعتَدينَ(55)
Pray to your Lord humbly and privately. God does not love the transgressors.(55)
وَلا تُفسِدوا فِى الأَرضِ بَعدَ إِصلٰحِها وَادعوهُ خَوفًا وَطَمَعًا ۚ إِنَّ رَحمَتَ اللَّهِ قَريبٌ مِنَ المُحسِنينَ(56)
Do not destroy the land after it has been well established but pray to God, have fear of Him, and hope to receive His mercy. God's mercy is close to the righteous people.(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)
God sends the wind bearing the glad news of His mercy. When heavy clouds are formed, We drive them unto a barren country and rain down on it water to cause all kinds of fruits to grow. In the same way do We bring the dead to life again. Perhaps you would take heed.(57)
وَالبَلَدُ الطَّيِّبُ يَخرُجُ نَباتُهُ بِإِذنِ رَبِّهِ ۖ وَالَّذى خَبُثَ لا يَخرُجُ إِلّا نَكِدًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نُصَرِّفُ الءايٰتِ لِقَومٍ يَشكُرونَ(58)
A good land produces plants, by the permission of its Lord, but a wicked land produces only miserable, bitter plants. Thus do We show a variety of evidence for those 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. He told them, "Worship God for He is your only Lord. I am afraid of the punishment that you might suffer on the great Day (of Judgment)".(59)
قالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِهِ إِنّا لَنَرىٰكَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(60)
A group of his people said to him, "You are absolutely wrong."(60)
قالَ يٰقَومِ لَيسَ بى ضَلٰلَةٌ وَلٰكِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(61)
(Noah) said, "My people, I am not in any error, rather I am a Messenger from the Lord of the Universe,(61)
أُبَلِّغُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَأَنصَحُ لَكُم وَأَعلَمُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ما لا تَعلَمونَ(62)
sent to preach to you the message of my Lord and to give you good advice. I know what you do not know about God.(62)
أَوَعَجِبتُم أَن جاءَكُم ذِكرٌ مِن رَبِّكُم عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ مِنكُم لِيُنذِرَكُم وَلِتَتَّقوا وَلَعَلَّكُم تُرحَمونَ(63)
Does it seem strange to you that a reminder from your Lord should be sent to a man, from among you, to warn you so that you might receive mercy?"(63)
فَكَذَّبوهُ فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَالَّذينَ مَعَهُ فِى الفُلكِ وَأَغرَقنَا الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومًا عَمينَ(64)
They accused him of telling lies. So We saved him and his companions in an ark and drowned those who called Our revelations mere lies. They were, no doubt, a blind people.(64)
۞ وَإِلىٰ عادٍ أَخاهُم هودًا ۗ قالَ يٰقَومِ اعبُدُوا اللَّهَ ما لَكُم مِن إِلٰهٍ غَيرُهُ ۚ أَفَلا تَتَّقونَ(65)
We sent Hud to his brethren, the tribe of `Ad, who told them, "Worship God for He is your only Lord. Will you not become pious?"(65)
قالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا مِن قَومِهِ إِنّا لَنَرىٰكَ فى سَفاهَةٍ وَإِنّا لَنَظُنُّكَ مِنَ الكٰذِبينَ(66)
A group of the unbelievers among his people said, "You look to us like a fool and we think that you are a liar".(66)
قالَ يٰقَومِ لَيسَ بى سَفاهَةٌ وَلٰكِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(67)
He replied, "My people, I am not a fool but a Messenger of the Lord of the Universe.(67)
أُبَلِّغُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَأَنا۠ لَكُم ناصِحٌ أَمينٌ(68)
I preach the message of my Lord to you and am a trustworthy advisor for you.(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)
Does it seem strange to you that a reminder from your Lord should be sent to a man among you so that He may warn you? Recall when God appointed you as successors of the people of Noah and increased your power over other people. Give thanks to God for His blessings so that perhaps you will have everlasting happiness."(69)
قالوا أَجِئتَنا لِنَعبُدَ اللَّهَ وَحدَهُ وَنَذَرَ ما كانَ يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُنا ۖ فَأتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(70)
They said, "Have you come to make us worship God alone and give up what our fathers worshipped? If you are truthful, let the torment with which you have threatened us, strike us".(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 will certainly be afflicted by wickedness and the wrath of God. Do you dispute with me about the names of that which you and your fathers have invented? God has given no authority to those names. Wait for God's decree and I, too, am waiting with you."(71)
فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَالَّذينَ مَعَهُ بِرَحمَةٍ مِنّا وَقَطَعنا دابِرَ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا ۖ وَما كانوا مُؤمِنينَ(72)
Through Our mercy, We saved him and his companions and destroyed the unbelievers who called Our revelations mere lies.(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 Salih to his brethren, the tribe of Thamud, who told them, "Worship God your only Lord. Authoritative evidence has come to you from your Lord and this she-camel is the evidence for you from God. Let her graze in the land of God. Do not give her any trouble lest a painful torment will strike 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)
Recall (the time) when We settled you in the land as the heirs of the tribe of Ad and how you established mansions in the plains and carved homes out of the mountains. Give thanks to God for His favors and do not commit evil 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 proud ones among Salih's people asked his oppressed followers, "Do you (really) know that Salih is a Messenger of his Lord?" They replied, "We have faith in the Message which he preaches".(75)
قالَ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا إِنّا بِالَّذى ءامَنتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(76)
The proud oppressors said, "We reject that which you believe in".(76)
فَعَقَرُوا النّاقَةَ وَعَتَوا عَن أَمرِ رَبِّهِم وَقالوا يٰصٰلِحُ ائتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ المُرسَلينَ(77)
They then slew the camel and rebelled against the orders of their Lord saying, " Salih, if you are truly a Messenger, let that torment with which you have threatened us come to pass."(77)
فَأَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دارِهِم جٰثِمينَ(78)
Suddenly, an earthquake jolted them and they were left motionless in their homes.(78)
فَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰقَومِ لَقَد أَبلَغتُكُم رِسالَةَ رَبّى وَنَصَحتُ لَكُم وَلٰكِن لا تُحِبّونَ النّٰصِحينَ(79)
He turned away from them saying, "My people, I preached the Message of my Lord to you and gave you good advice, but you do not love advisors."(79)
وَلوطًا إِذ قالَ لِقَومِهِ أَتَأتونَ الفٰحِشَةَ ما سَبَقَكُم بِها مِن أَحَدٍ مِنَ العٰلَمينَ(80)
Lot told his people, "Why do you commit such indecent acts that have never been committed by anyone before?(80)
إِنَّكُم لَتَأتونَ الرِّجالَ شَهوَةً مِن دونِ النِّساءِ ۚ بَل أَنتُم قَومٌ مُسرِفونَ(81)
You engage in lustful activities with people instead of women. You have become transgressing people.(81)
وَما كانَ جَوابَ قَومِهِ إِلّا أَن قالوا أَخرِجوهُم مِن قَريَتِكُم ۖ إِنَّهُم أُناسٌ يَتَطَهَّرونَ(82)
His people had no answer to his remarks but to tell one another, "Expel him from our town; he and his people want to purify themselves."(82)
فَأَنجَينٰهُ وَأَهلَهُ إِلَّا امرَأَتَهُ كانَت مِنَ الغٰبِرينَ(83)
We saved (Lot) and his family except his wife who remained with the rest.(83)
وَأَمطَرنا عَلَيهِم مَطَرًا ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُجرِمينَ(84)
We sent a torrential rain unto the (unbelievers). Consider how disastrous the end of the criminals was!(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)
We sent to the people of Midian their brother Shu'ayb who also told his people to worship God their only Lord. He said, "A guidance has come to you from your Lord. Maintain proper measures and weights in trade. Do not cause any deficiency in people's property or destroy the land after it has been reformed. This is for your own good, if you have any faith.(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 ambush the believers or hinder them from every path that leads them to God just because you wish to make such ways seem crooked. Recall the time when you were just a few in number and God multiplied you. Consider how terrible the end of the evil-doers was!(86)
وَإِن كانَ طائِفَةٌ مِنكُم ءامَنوا بِالَّذى أُرسِلتُ بِهِ وَطائِفَةٌ لَم يُؤمِنوا فَاصبِروا حَتّىٰ يَحكُمَ اللَّهُ بَينَنا ۚ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الحٰكِمينَ(87)
If there are some of you who believe in the Message that I have been commanded to preach and there are others who do not, exercise patience until God judges among us. He is the best Judge."(87)
۞ قالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا مِن قَومِهِ لَنُخرِجَنَّكَ يٰشُعَيبُ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَكَ مِن قَريَتِنا أَو لَتَعودُنَّ فى مِلَّتِنا ۚ قالَ أَوَلَو كُنّا كٰرِهينَ(88)
A proud group among Shu'ayb's people said, "We must expel you (Shu'ayb) and your followers from our town unless you give-up your faith and live as our own people." Shu'ayb asked them, "Will you use force against us?(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 would certainly be inventing falsehoods against God if we were to accept your way of life, when God has already saved us from it. We do not have to accept it unless God, our Lord, wills it. Our Lord's knowledge covers all things. We trust in Him and ask Him to judge among us and our people, for He is the best Judge."(89)
وَقالَ المَلَأُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا مِن قَومِهِ لَئِنِ اتَّبَعتُم شُعَيبًا إِنَّكُم إِذًا لَخٰسِرونَ(90)
A group of the unbelievers among his people told the others, "If you follow Shu'ayb, you will certainly lose a great deal."(90)
فَأَخَذَتهُمُ الرَّجفَةُ فَأَصبَحوا فى دارِهِم جٰثِمينَ(91)
Suddenly, an earthquake struck them and left them motionless in their homes.(91)
الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا شُعَيبًا كَأَن لَم يَغنَوا فيهَا ۚ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا شُعَيبًا كانوا هُمُ الخٰسِرينَ(92)
Those who called Shu'ayb a liar were destroyed as though they never existed. They certainly were the ones to lose a great deal.(92)
فَتَوَلّىٰ عَنهُم وَقالَ يٰقَومِ لَقَد أَبلَغتُكُم رِسٰلٰتِ رَبّى وَنَصَحتُ لَكُم ۖ فَكَيفَ ءاسىٰ عَلىٰ قَومٍ كٰفِرينَ(93)
He turned away from them saying, "My people, I preached the Message of my Lord to you and gave you good advice. How could I be sorry for the unbelievers?"(93)
وَما أَرسَلنا فى قَريَةٍ مِن نَبِىٍّ إِلّا أَخَذنا أَهلَها بِالبَأساءِ وَالضَّرّاءِ لَعَلَّهُم يَضَّرَّعونَ(94)
To every town that We sent a Prophet, We tested its inhabitants through distress and adversity so that perhaps they would submit themselves to Us.(94)
ثُمَّ بَدَّلنا مَكانَ السَّيِّئَةِ الحَسَنَةَ حَتّىٰ عَفَوا وَقالوا قَد مَسَّ ءاباءَنَا الضَّرّاءُ وَالسَّرّاءُ فَأَخَذنٰهُم بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(95)
We then replaced their misfortune with well-being until they were relieved and began saying, "Our fathers had also experienced good and bad days." Suddenly, We struck them (with torment) while they were all unaware (of what was happening).(95)
وَلَو أَنَّ أَهلَ القُرىٰ ءامَنوا وَاتَّقَوا لَفَتَحنا عَلَيهِم بَرَكٰتٍ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَالأَرضِ وَلٰكِن كَذَّبوا فَأَخَذنٰهُم بِما كانوا يَكسِبونَ(96)
Had the people of the towns believed (in Our revelations) and maintained piety, We would have certainly showered on them Our blessings from the sky and the earth. But they called Our revelations lies, thus Our torment struck them for their evil deeds.(96)
أَفَأَمِنَ أَهلُ القُرىٰ أَن يَأتِيَهُم بَأسُنا بَيٰتًا وَهُم نائِمونَ(97)
Did the people of the towns think themselves secure from Our wrath that could strike them at night during their sleep(97)
أَوَأَمِنَ أَهلُ القُرىٰ أَن يَأتِيَهُم بَأسُنا ضُحًى وَهُم يَلعَبونَ(98)
or that which could seize them during their busy hours of the day?(98)
أَفَأَمِنوا مَكرَ اللَّهِ ۚ فَلا يَأمَنُ مَكرَ اللَّهِ إِلَّا القَومُ الخٰسِرونَ(99)
Did they consider themselves secure from the retribution of God? No one can have such attitude except those who are lost.(99)
أَوَلَم يَهدِ لِلَّذينَ يَرِثونَ الأَرضَ مِن بَعدِ أَهلِها أَن لَو نَشاءُ أَصَبنٰهُم بِذُنوبِهِم ۚ وَنَطبَعُ عَلىٰ قُلوبِهِم فَهُم لا يَسمَعونَ(100)
Is it not a lesson for the successors of the past generations that had We wanted, We could have punished them for their sins, sealed their hearts and deprived them of hearing?(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)
(Muhammad), such were the stories of the people who lived in (different) towns in the past. We had sent Our Messengers to them with (certain) miracles but the people still did not believe in what they had rejected before. Such is how God seals the hearts of the unbelievers.(101)
وَما وَجَدنا لِأَكثَرِهِم مِن عَهدٍ ۖ وَإِن وَجَدنا أَكثَرَهُم لَفٰسِقينَ(102)
We did not find many among them keeping their promises. However, We did find many evil-doers among them.(102)
ثُمَّ بَعَثنا مِن بَعدِهِم موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِ فَظَلَموا بِها ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُفسِدينَ(103)
After the time of those people, We sent Moses with Our miracles to Pharaoh and his people, but they too rejected Our miracles. Consider, how terrible the end of the evil-doers is!(103)
وَقالَ موسىٰ يٰفِرعَونُ إِنّى رَسولٌ مِن رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(104)
Moses told the Pharaoh, "I am a Messengers from the Lord of the Universe.(104)
حَقيقٌ عَلىٰ أَن لا أَقولَ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِلَّا الحَقَّ ۚ قَد جِئتُكُم بِبَيِّنَةٍ مِن رَبِّكُم فَأَرسِل مَعِىَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(105)
I must only speak what is true about God. I have brought you miracles from your Lord; therefore, let the children of Israel go free".(105)
قالَ إِن كُنتَ جِئتَ بِـٔايَةٍ فَأتِ بِها إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(106)
The Pharaoh asked Moses to show his miracles if he was telling the truth.(106)
فَأَلقىٰ عَصاهُ فَإِذا هِىَ ثُعبانٌ مُبينٌ(107)
So Moses threw down his staff and suddenly it turned into a real serpent.(107)
وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُ فَإِذا هِىَ بَيضاءُ لِلنّٰظِرينَ(108)
Then he uncovered his hand and it appeared sheer white to the onlookers.(108)
قالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِ فِرعَونَ إِنَّ هٰذا لَسٰحِرٌ عَليمٌ(109)
Some of the Pharaoh's nobles considered him to be no more than a skillful magician(109)
يُريدُ أَن يُخرِجَكُم مِن أَرضِكُم ۖ فَماذا تَأمُرونَ(110)
and said, "He wants to expel you from your land." They asked (others), " what is your opinion in the matter?(110)
قالوا أَرجِه وَأَخاهُ وَأَرسِل فِى المَدائِنِ حٰشِرينَ(111)
The others suggested holding Moses and his brother off and sending to all the cities(111)
يَأتوكَ بِكُلِّ سٰحِرٍ عَليمٍ(112)
to bring together at the Pharaohs court all the skillful magicians.(112)
وَجاءَ السَّحَرَةُ فِرعَونَ قالوا إِنَّ لَنا لَأَجرًا إِن كُنّا نَحنُ الغٰلِبينَ(113)
The magicians came to the Pharaoh and said, "We must have our reward if we are to gain a victory over him (Moses)".(113)
قالَ نَعَم وَإِنَّكُم لَمِنَ المُقَرَّبينَ(114)
The Pharaoh replied, "In addition to your rewards, you will become my close friends thereafter."(114)
قالوا يٰموسىٰ إِمّا أَن تُلقِىَ وَإِمّا أَن نَكونَ نَحنُ المُلقينَ(115)
The magicians asked Moses, "Will you throw your staff first or shall we?"(115)
قالَ أَلقوا ۖ فَلَمّا أَلقَوا سَحَروا أَعيُنَ النّاسِ وَاستَرهَبوهُم وَجاءو بِسِحرٍ عَظيمٍ(116)
He replied, "Throw yours first." Their great magic bewitched people's eyes and terrified them.(116)
۞ وَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ أَن أَلقِ عَصاكَ ۖ فَإِذا هِىَ تَلقَفُ ما يَأفِكونَ(117)
We inspired Moses to throw his staff, and suddenly it began to swallow-up all that the magicians had (falsely) invented.(117)
فَوَقَعَ الحَقُّ وَبَطَلَ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(118)
Thus the Truth prevailed and their false art was banished.(118)
فَغُلِبوا هُنالِكَ وَانقَلَبوا صٰغِرينَ(119)
The magicians who were defeated on the spot and were proved to be worthless,(119)
وَأُلقِىَ السَّحَرَةُ سٰجِدينَ(120)
threw themselves down in prostration(120)
قالوا ءامَنّا بِرَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(121)
saying, "We declare our belief in the Lord of the Universe,(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)
The Pharaoh said to the magicians, "You declared your belief in him (Moses) without my permission. This is a plot to throw my people out of their city. But you will soon know.(123)
لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيدِيَكُم وَأَرجُلَكُم مِن خِلٰفٍ ثُمَّ لَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُم أَجمَعينَ(124)
I will cut off your hands and feet on the alternate sides and crucify you all."(124)
قالوا إِنّا إِلىٰ رَبِّنا مُنقَلِبونَ(125)
The magicians said, "We will certainly return to Our Lord.(125)
وَما تَنقِمُ مِنّا إِلّا أَن ءامَنّا بِـٔايٰتِ رَبِّنا لَمّا جاءَتنا ۚ رَبَّنا أَفرِغ عَلَينا صَبرًا وَتَوَفَّنا مُسلِمينَ(126)
You only take revenge on us because we believed in the Lord when we saw His miracles. Lord, grant us patience and let us die Muslims (submitted to God)."(126)
وَقالَ المَلَأُ مِن قَومِ فِرعَونَ أَتَذَرُ موسىٰ وَقَومَهُ لِيُفسِدوا فِى الأَرضِ وَيَذَرَكَ وَءالِهَتَكَ ۚ قالَ سَنُقَتِّلُ أَبناءَهُم وَنَستَحيۦ نِساءَهُم وَإِنّا فَوقَهُم قٰهِرونَ(127)
Some of the Pharaohs people said, "Will you let Moses and his people destroy the land and disregard you and your gods?" The Pharaoh said, "We will kill their sons and leave their women alive; they are under our domination."(127)
قالَ موسىٰ لِقَومِهِ استَعينوا بِاللَّهِ وَاصبِروا ۖ إِنَّ الأَرضَ لِلَّهِ يورِثُها مَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ ۖ وَالعٰقِبَةُ لِلمُتَّقينَ(128)
Moses told his people to seek help from God and exercise patience. The earth belongs to Him and He has made it the heritage of whichever of His servants He chooses. The final victory is for the pious ones.(128)
قالوا أوذينا مِن قَبلِ أَن تَأتِيَنا وَمِن بَعدِ ما جِئتَنا ۚ قالَ عَسىٰ رَبُّكُم أَن يُهلِكَ عَدُوَّكُم وَيَستَخلِفَكُم فِى الأَرضِ فَيَنظُرَ كَيفَ تَعمَلونَ(129)
His people said, "We suffered a great deal before you came and we are still suffering even after you have come." Moses (tried to encourage them) by saying, "There is hope that your Lord will destroy your enemies and make you (their) successors in the land. So consider how you act."(129)
وَلَقَد أَخَذنا ءالَ فِرعَونَ بِالسِّنينَ وَنَقصٍ مِنَ الثَّمَرٰتِ لَعَلَّهُم يَذَّكَّرونَ(130)
For years We afflicted Pharaoh's people with shortages in food so that perhaps they would 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)
But they would always ascribe their well-being to themselves and the misfortunes that they would experience to Moses and his people. Their fate is certainly in the hands of God but many of them do not know.(131)
وَقالوا مَهما تَأتِنا بِهِ مِن ءايَةٍ لِتَسحَرَنا بِها فَما نَحنُ لَكَ بِمُؤمِنينَ(132)
They said to Moses, "No matter what miracle you show to bewitch us, we will not believe you."(132)
فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِمُ الطّوفانَ وَالجَرادَ وَالقُمَّلَ وَالضَّفادِعَ وَالدَّمَ ءايٰتٍ مُفَصَّلٰتٍ فَاستَكبَروا وَكانوا قَومًا مُجرِمينَ(133)
We sent upon them widespread calamities: floods of locusts, lice, frogs, and blood. All were distinct miracles but these criminals all the time remained proud.(133)
وَلَمّا وَقَعَ عَلَيهِمُ الرِّجزُ قالوا يٰموسَى ادعُ لَنا رَبَّكَ بِما عَهِدَ عِندَكَ ۖ لَئِن كَشَفتَ عَنَّا الرِّجزَ لَنُؤمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(134)
When the torment would strike them, they would ask Moses, "Pray for us to your Lord through your covenant with Him. If He saves us from the torment, we shall certainly believe in you and permit you and the children of Israel to leave".(134)
فَلَمّا كَشَفنا عَنهُمُ الرِّجزَ إِلىٰ أَجَلٍ هُم بٰلِغوهُ إِذا هُم يَنكُثونَ(135)
But when We relieved them from the torment for a given time, they again broke their promise.(135)
فَانتَقَمنا مِنهُم فَأَغرَقنٰهُم فِى اليَمِّ بِأَنَّهُم كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَكانوا عَنها غٰفِلينَ(136)
We took revenge on them for their rejecting Our miracles, by drowning them in the sea, but they were not aware of (reality).(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 gave the suppressed people the blessed eastern and western regions as their inheritance. Thus, the promises of your Lord to the children of Israel all came true because of the patience which they exercised. He destroyed all the establishments of the Pharaoh and his people.(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)
We helped the children of Israel to cross the sea. They came to a people who worshipped idols. The Israelites demanded Moses to make gods for them like those of the idol-worshippers. Moses told them, "You are an ignorant people.(138)
إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ مُتَبَّرٌ ما هُم فيهِ وَبٰطِلٌ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(139)
What these people worship is doomed to be destroyed and their deeds are based on falsehood.(139)
قالَ أَغَيرَ اللَّهِ أَبغيكُم إِلٰهًا وَهُوَ فَضَّلَكُم عَلَى العٰلَمينَ(140)
Should I choose for you a lord other than God who has favored you above all other people?(140)
وَإِذ أَنجَينٰكُم مِن ءالِ فِرعَونَ يَسومونَكُم سوءَ العَذابِ ۖ يُقَتِّلونَ أَبناءَكُم وَيَستَحيونَ نِساءَكُم ۚ وَفى ذٰلِكُم بَلاءٌ مِن رَبِّكُم عَظيمٌ(141)
"Children of Israel, when I saved you from the Pharaoh and his people who made you suffer the worst kinds of torment, killing your sons and keeping your women alive, it was a great trial for you 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 told Moses to stay with Us for thirty nights (in the mountains) but added ten nights more so his appointment with his Lord came to an end after forty nights. Moses had appointed his brother Aaron as his deputy among his people during his absence saying, "Try to reform them and do not follow the way of the evil-doers."(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)
During the appointment, the Lord spoke to Moses. He asked the Lord to show Himself so that he could look at Him. The Lord replied, "You can never see Me. But look at the mountain. If the mountain remains firm only then will you see Me." When the Lord manifested His Glory to the mountain, He turned it into dust and Moses fell down upon his face senseless. After regaining his senses, Moses said, "Lord, You are all Holy. I repent for what I asked you to do and I am the first to believe in You."(143)
قالَ يٰموسىٰ إِنِّى اصطَفَيتُكَ عَلَى النّاسِ بِرِسٰلٰتى وَبِكَلٰمى فَخُذ ما ءاتَيتُكَ وَكُن مِنَ الشّٰكِرينَ(144)
The Lord said to Moses, "I have given you distinction above the people by speaking to you and giving you My Message. Receive what I have given to you and give Us thanks."(144)
وَكَتَبنا لَهُ فِى الأَلواحِ مِن كُلِّ شَيءٍ مَوعِظَةً وَتَفصيلًا لِكُلِّ شَيءٍ فَخُذها بِقُوَّةٍ وَأمُر قَومَكَ يَأخُذوا بِأَحسَنِها ۚ سَأُو۟ريكُم دارَ الفٰسِقينَ(145)
We wrote advice and laws for him on Tablets about all kinds of things, saying, "Follow them and command your people to follow the good advice therein, and I will show you the dwellings of the evil-doers."(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)
We will deprive those who are wrongly proud in the land of the blessing of revelations. Even if they would see all kinds of miracles, they would not have faith, or even to see the right path, they would not follow it. They would follow the rebellious way if they were to find one; in their ignorance, they have called Our revelations mere lies.(146)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَلِقاءِ الءاخِرَةِ حَبِطَت أَعمٰلُهُم ۚ هَل يُجزَونَ إِلّا ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(147)
The deeds of those who have called Our revelations and belief in the Day of Judgment mere lies, will be turned devoid of all virtue. Can they expect to receive a reward for their deeds other than that which is the result of their deeds?(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 Moses' absence, his people manufactured a hollow sounding calf out of their ornaments. Could they not see that it could not speak to them or provide them with any guidance? They gained only evil by worshipping the calf.(148)
وَلَمّا سُقِطَ فى أَيديهِم وَرَأَوا أَنَّهُم قَد ضَلّوا قالوا لَئِن لَم يَرحَمنا رَبُّنا وَيَغفِر لَنا لَنَكونَنَّ مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(149)
When they found that they had believed in the wrong thing, they regretfully said, "If our Lord will not have mercy on us and forgive us, we will certainly 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 with anger and sorrow, he said, "What you have done in my absence is certainly evil. Why were you hasty about the commandments of your Lord?" He threw away the Tablets (which contained the commandments of God), grabbed his brother and started to pull him to himself. His brother begged him saying, "Son of my mother, the people suppressed me and almost killed me. Do not humiliate me before the enemies or call me unjust".(150)
قالَ رَبِّ اغفِر لى وَلِأَخى وَأَدخِلنا فى رَحمَتِكَ ۖ وَأَنتَ أَرحَمُ الرّٰحِمينَ(151)
Moses prayed, "Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy; you are the most Merciful."(151)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ اتَّخَذُوا العِجلَ سَيَنالُهُم غَضَبٌ مِن رَبِّهِم وَذِلَّةٌ فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى المُفتَرينَ(152)
(The Lord said), "Those who worshipped the calf will be afflicted by the wrath of their Lord and disgraced in their worldly life. Thus, We will recompense those who invent falsehood.(152)
وَالَّذينَ عَمِلُوا السَّيِّـٔاتِ ثُمَّ تابوا مِن بَعدِها وَءامَنوا إِنَّ رَبَّكَ مِن بَعدِها لَغَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(153)
To those who commit bad deeds, but, then, repent and believe (in God), Your Lord will certainly be All-forgiving and All-merciful."(153)
وَلَمّا سَكَتَ عَن موسَى الغَضَبُ أَخَذَ الأَلواحَ ۖ وَفى نُسخَتِها هُدًى وَرَحمَةٌ لِلَّذينَ هُم لِرَبِّهِم يَرهَبونَ(154)
When Moses' anger calmed down, he collected the Tablets. On one of them was written, "God's mercy and guidance are for those who have fear of Him."(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 selected seventy men from his people to attend Our appointment. (In Our presence). When an earthquake jolted them to death, Moses said, "Lord, had You wanted to destroy them, why did You not destroy them and me before. Are You destroying us for what the fools among us have done? This (destruction) is only a trial through which You cause some to go astray and guide others. You are our Guardian. Forgive us and have mercy on us; You are the best of those who forgive.(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)
"Grant us well-being in this life and in the life hereafter for we have turned ourselves to You." The Lord replied, "My torment only afflicts those whom I want to punish, but My mercy encompasses all things. I shall grant mercy to those who maintain piety, pay their religious tax, and those who have faith in Our revelations."(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)
There are those who follow the Messengers, the illiterate Prophet (not conventionally educated), whose description they find written in the Torah and the Gospel. [He (the Messengers) enjoins them to do good and forbids them to do all that is unlawful, makes lawful for them all that is pure and unlawful all that is filthy, removes their burdens and the entanglements in which they are involved]. Those who believe in him, honor and help him, and follow the light which is sent down to him, will have everlasting happiness.(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)
(Muhammad), tell them, "People, I have come to you all as the Messengers of God, to whom the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs. There is no God but He. In His hands are life and death. Have faith in God and His Messengers, the unlettered Prophet who believes in God and His words. Follow him so that you will perhaps have guidance."(158)
وَمِن قَومِ موسىٰ أُمَّةٌ يَهدونَ بِالحَقِّ وَبِهِ يَعدِلونَ(159)
Among the people of Moses are some whose guidance and Judgment are based on the Truth.(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 the descendants of Israel into twelve tribes and told Moses to strike the rock with his staff to let twelve fountains gush out therefrom; his people had asked him to supply them with water. The twelve flowing springs were divided among them (a spring for each tribe) and each tribe knew its drinking place well. We provided them with shade from the clouds, sent down manna and quails to them for food, and told them to eat the pure things which We had given them. They did not do injustice to Us but they wronged themselves.(160)
وَإِذ قيلَ لَهُمُ اسكُنوا هٰذِهِ القَريَةَ وَكُلوا مِنها حَيثُ شِئتُم وَقولوا حِطَّةٌ وَادخُلُوا البابَ سُجَّدًا نَغفِر لَكُم خَطيـٰٔتِكُم ۚ سَنَزيدُ المُحسِنينَ(161)
When they were told, "Settle down in this town, eat as you wish, seek forgiveness and enter the gate prostrating yourselves (in obedience to the Lord) and We will forgive you your sins and increase the reward of the righteous people,(161)
فَبَدَّلَ الَّذينَ ظَلَموا مِنهُم قَولًا غَيرَ الَّذى قيلَ لَهُم فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم رِجزًا مِنَ السَّماءِ بِما كانوا يَظلِمونَ(162)
the unjust among them changed the words which they were told to say (in the prayer). Therefore, We sent upon them torment from the sky for their wrong deeds.(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)
(Muhammad), ask them about the (people of the) towns on the seashore. They had transgressed by catching fish on the Sabbath. Each Sabbath the fish came openly within their reach but not so on other days. Thus, We were testing them because of their evil deeds.(163)
وَإِذ قالَت أُمَّةٌ مِنهُم لِمَ تَعِظونَ قَومًا ۙ اللَّهُ مُهلِكُهُم أَو مُعَذِّبُهُم عَذابًا شَديدًا ۖ قالوا مَعذِرَةً إِلىٰ رَبِّكُم وَلَعَلَّهُم يَتَّقونَ(164)
When a group of them questioned another group saying, "Why do you preach to those whom God has decided to destroy or punish by a severe torment?" they replied, "We preach to them for we are responsible in the sight of your Lord and so that perhaps they may have fear of God."(164)
فَلَمّا نَسوا ما ذُكِّروا بِهِ أَنجَينَا الَّذينَ يَنهَونَ عَنِ السّوءِ وَأَخَذنَا الَّذينَ ظَلَموا بِعَذابٍ بَـٔيسٍ بِما كانوا يَفسُقونَ(165)
When they (the unjust people) forgot what was preached to them, We saved the preachers from evil and afflicted the unjust for their evil deeds, with a dreadful torment.(165)
فَلَمّا عَتَوا عَن ما نُهوا عَنهُ قُلنا لَهُم كونوا قِرَدَةً خٰسِـٔينَ(166)
When they crossed the limit of the prohibition, We made them turn into detested apes.(166)
وَإِذ تَأَذَّنَ رَبُّكَ لَيَبعَثَنَّ عَلَيهِم إِلىٰ يَومِ القِيٰمَةِ مَن يَسومُهُم سوءَ العَذابِ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَسَريعُ العِقابِ ۖ وَإِنَّهُ لَغَفورٌ رَحيمٌ(167)
(Muhammad), consider, when your Lord declared to the (Israelites) His decision to raise a people above them who would make them suffer the worst kinds of torments until the Day of Judgment. Certainly your Lord's retribution is swift. He is All-forgiving and All-merciful.(167)
وَقَطَّعنٰهُم فِى الأَرضِ أُمَمًا ۖ مِنهُمُ الصّٰلِحونَ وَمِنهُم دونَ ذٰلِكَ ۖ وَبَلَونٰهُم بِالحَسَنٰتِ وَالسَّيِّـٔاتِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(168)
We divided them into nations on the earth; some are righteous and others are not. We tested them with well-being and hardship so that they might return (to the right path).(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)
Their descendants who inherited the Book gained (by bribery only) worthless things from the worldly life saying, "We shall be forgiven (for what we have done). They would have even doubled such gains if they could have received more. Did they not make a covenant (with God) in the Book not to speak any thing other than the Truth about God and to study its contents well? The life hereafter is much better for the pious ones. Will you not then think?(169)
وَالَّذينَ يُمَسِّكونَ بِالكِتٰبِ وَأَقامُوا الصَّلوٰةَ إِنّا لا نُضيعُ أَجرَ المُصلِحينَ(170)
Those who devote themselves to the teachings of the Book and are steadfast in prayer (should know that) the reward of those who reform themselves will not be lost.(170)
۞ وَإِذ نَتَقنَا الجَبَلَ فَوقَهُم كَأَنَّهُ ظُلَّةٌ وَظَنّوا أَنَّهُ واقِعٌ بِهِم خُذوا ما ءاتَينٰكُم بِقُوَّةٍ وَاذكُروا ما فيهِ لَعَلَّكُم تَتَّقونَ(171)
When We raised the mount above them as a shadow and made it speak to them, they thought that it would fall on them. We told them to devote themselves decisively to what was given to them and follow its guidance so that they would have fear of God.(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 asked all the offspring of Adam (before their birth), "Am I not your Lord?" All of them testified and bore witness to their testimony that on the Day of Judgment they would not say, "We were not aware of this (fact),"(172)
أَو تَقولوا إِنَّما أَشرَكَ ءاباؤُنا مِن قَبلُ وَكُنّا ذُرِّيَّةً مِن بَعدِهِم ۖ أَفَتُهلِكُنا بِما فَعَلَ المُبطِلونَ(173)
or say, "Our fathers worshipped idols before us and we as their descendants followed them. Would you then destroy us because of what the followers of falsehood have done?"(173)
وَكَذٰلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ الءايٰتِ وَلَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(174)
Thus do We explain Our revelations so that they might return to (the right path).(174)
وَاتلُ عَلَيهِم نَبَأَ الَّذى ءاتَينٰهُ ءايٰتِنا فَانسَلَخَ مِنها فَأَتبَعَهُ الشَّيطٰنُ فَكانَ مِنَ الغاوينَ(175)
(Muhammad), tell them the story of the person whom We inspired with Our guidance, but who detached himself from it and who was then pursued by Satan until he turned into a rebel.(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)
Had We wanted, We could have raised him to an exalted position but he clung to his earthly life and followed his own (evil) desires. Such person's bad habits are like those of a lazy dog (in a warm climate) who always has its tongue hanging out whether you chase it away or leave it alone. Such are the people who have called Our revelations mere lies. (Muhammad), tell them such stories so that perhaps they will think.(176)
ساءَ مَثَلًا القَومُ الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَأَنفُسَهُم كانوا يَظلِمونَ(177)
How terrible is the example of those who have rejected Our revelations and have done injustice only to themselves!(177)
مَن يَهدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ المُهتَدى ۖ وَمَن يُضلِل فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الخٰسِرونَ(178)
Those whom God has guided have the true guidance, but those whom He has caused to go astray are certainly 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)
We have destined many men and jinn for hell. They have hearts but do not understand, eyes but do not see. They have ears but do not hear. They are worse than lost cattle. These are the heedless ones.(179)
وَلِلَّهِ الأَسماءُ الحُسنىٰ فَادعوهُ بِها ۖ وَذَرُوا الَّذينَ يُلحِدونَ فى أَسمٰئِهِ ۚ سَيُجزَونَ ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(180)
God has the most blessed Names. You should address Him in your worship by these Names and keep away from those who pervert them. They will be recompensed for their (evil) deeds.(180)
وَمِمَّن خَلَقنا أُمَّةٌ يَهدونَ بِالحَقِّ وَبِهِ يَعدِلونَ(181)
Among Our creatures are a group who guide and judge with the Truth.(181)
وَالَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِـٔايٰتِنا سَنَستَدرِجُهُم مِن حَيثُ لا يَعلَمونَ(182)
We gradually lead those who have called Our revelations mere lies, to destruction. Their destruction will be such that they will not even notice how it seized them.(182)
وَأُملى لَهُم ۚ إِنَّ كَيدى مَتينٌ(183)
Though I have given them a respite, My plan against them is well established.(183)
أَوَلَم يَتَفَكَّروا ۗ ما بِصاحِبِهِم مِن جِنَّةٍ ۚ إِن هُوَ إِلّا نَذيرٌ مُبينٌ(184)
Why will they not understand that their companion (Muhammad) is not possessed by jinn. (Muhammad) is only a (Divinely) authorized preacher.(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 considered the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth and everything that God has created? Perhaps death approaches them. In what kind of guidance can they have faith besides that of the Quran?(185)
مَن يُضلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلا هادِىَ لَهُ ۚ وَيَذَرُهُم فى طُغيٰنِهِم يَعمَهونَ(186)
No one can guide those whom God has caused to go astray and has left to continue blindly in their rebellion.(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 (Muhammad), "When will the Day of Judgment be?" Tell them, "My Lord knows best. It is He who has appointed its time. It will be a grave hour both in the heavens and the earth. It will only approach you suddenly." They say, "It seems that you know about the coming of the Day of Judgment." Tell them, "Only God knows about it and 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)
(Muhammad), say, "I have no control over my benefits or sufferings, without the will of God. Had I known about the unseen, I would have gained much good and would have faced no suffering. I am only a warner and I preach the glad news to the believing people."(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 God Who created you from a single soul and out of it made its spouse to bring it comfort. When he (man) engaged in carnal relations with her, she conceived a light burden which she had to carry. When the baby grew in her womb, they (husband and wife) both prayed to their Lord, "If You grant us a healthy son we shall certainly give you thanks."(189)
فَلَمّا ءاتىٰهُما صٰلِحًا جَعَلا لَهُ شُرَكاءَ فيما ءاتىٰهُما ۚ فَتَعٰلَى اللَّهُ عَمّا يُشرِكونَ(190)
When they were given a healthy son, they began to love him as much as they loved God. God is too exalted to be loved equally to anything else.(190)
أَيُشرِكونَ ما لا يَخلُقُ شَيـًٔا وَهُم يُخلَقونَ(191)
Do they (the pagans) consider things that do not create anything but are themselves created equal to God?(191)
وَلا يَستَطيعونَ لَهُم نَصرًا وَلا أَنفُسَهُم يَنصُرونَ(192)
The idols are things that are not able to help others or even themselves.(192)
وَإِن تَدعوهُم إِلَى الهُدىٰ لا يَتَّبِعوكُم ۚ سَواءٌ عَلَيكُم أَدَعَوتُموهُم أَم أَنتُم صٰمِتونَ(193)
Believers, even if you invite them to true guidance, they will not follow you. It makes no difference whether you invite them or whether you keep quiet.(193)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ تَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ عِبادٌ أَمثالُكُم ۖ فَادعوهُم فَليَستَجيبوا لَكُم إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(194)
Those whom you (pagans) worship besides God, are themselves servants just like yourselves. If your claim was true, they should answer your prayers.(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 (the idols) have feet to walk, hands to hold things, eyes to see, and ears to hear? (Muhammad), tell them (the pagans) to call on their idols for help and to plan against Me without delay.(195)
إِنَّ وَلِۦِّىَ اللَّهُ الَّذى نَزَّلَ الكِتٰبَ ۖ وَهُوَ يَتَوَلَّى الصّٰلِحينَ(196)
The (true) Guardian is certainly God who has revealed the Book and is the Guardian of the righteous ones.(196)
وَالَّذينَ تَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ لا يَستَطيعونَ نَصرَكُم وَلا أَنفُسَهُم يَنصُرونَ(197)
The idols which you (the pagans) worship besides God can neither help you nor themselves.(197)
وَإِن تَدعوهُم إِلَى الهُدىٰ لا يَسمَعوا ۖ وَتَرىٰهُم يَنظُرونَ إِلَيكَ وَهُم لا يُبصِرونَ(198)
(Muhammad), if you invite them to the right guidance, they will not listen to you. You will see them looking at you but they do not really see.(198)
خُذِ العَفوَ وَأمُر بِالعُرفِ وَأَعرِض عَنِ الجٰهِلينَ(199)
Have forgiveness, preach the truth, and keep away from the ignorant ones.(199)
وَإِمّا يَنزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيطٰنِ نَزغٌ فَاستَعِذ بِاللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ سَميعٌ عَليمٌ(200)
If Satan will try to seduce you, seek refuge from God. God is All-hearing and All-knowing.(200)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ اتَّقَوا إِذا مَسَّهُم طٰئِفٌ مِنَ الشَّيطٰنِ تَذَكَّروا فَإِذا هُم مُبصِرونَ(201)
When a satanic thought starts to bother the pious ones, they understand and see the light(201)
وَإِخوٰنُهُم يَمُدّونَهُم فِى الغَىِّ ثُمَّ لا يُقصِرونَ(202)
while their brethren ceaselessly try to drag them into error.(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)
If you, (Muhammad), do not show them a miracle, they will keep on insisting that you must show them one. Say, "I only follow what is revealed to me from my Lord. This (Quran) contains wisdom for you from your Lord. It contains guidance and mercy for those who have faith.(203)
وَإِذا قُرِئَ القُرءانُ فَاستَمِعوا لَهُ وَأَنصِتوا لَعَلَّكُم تُرحَمونَ(204)
Whenever the Quran is recited (to you), listen to it quietly so that you may receive mercy.(204)
وَاذكُر رَبَّكَ فى نَفسِكَ تَضَرُّعًا وَخيفَةً وَدونَ الجَهرِ مِنَ القَولِ بِالغُدُوِّ وَالءاصالِ وَلا تَكُن مِنَ الغٰفِلينَ(205)
Remember your Lord deep within yourselves, humbly and privately - instead of shouting out loud - (in prayer) in the mornings and evenings and do not be of the heedless ones.(205)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لا يَستَكبِرونَ عَن عِبادَتِهِ وَيُسَبِّحونَهُ وَلَهُ يَسجُدونَ ۩(206)
Those who are near to your Lord do not disdain from worshipping Him. They glorify Him and prostrate themselves (in obedience to Him).(206)
