Yunus (Jonah)
as rendered by Bakhtiari Nejad

Ali Bakhtiari Nejad rendition of Surah Jonah(Yunus)
---
10:1 A.L.R. (Alif. Lam. Ra.). These are the verses of the wise book.
10:2 Is it a surprise to the people that We revealed to a man among them to warn the people, and to give good news to those who believed that they have a true footing with their Master? The disbelievers said: this is certainly an obvious magician.
10:3 Indeed your Master is God the One who created the skies and the earth in six days (stages), then He settled on the throne directing the affair. There is no mediator except after His permission. That is God your Master, so serve Him. Do you not take notice?
10:4 Return of all of you is to Him. God’s promise is true. He begins the creation then brings it back to justly reward those who believed and did good works, and those who disbelieved have a drink of boiling water and a painful punishment for what they used to disbelieve.
10:5 He is the One who made the sun shine and the moon a (reflection of) light and determined its positions so you know the number of years and the count (of days and time). God rightfully created that. He explains the signs for people who know.
10:6 Indeed in the alternation (and the difference) of the night and the day and what God created in the skies and the earth there are signs for people who control themselves.
10:7 Indeed those who do not expect to meet Us and are happy with this world’s life and are satisfied with it, and those who are negligent of Our signs,
10:8 their housing is the fire, for what they were doing.
10:9 Indeed those who believed and did good works, their Master guides them to gardens of delight which rivers flow through them, because of their belief.
10:10 Their prayer in it is: God, glory to You. And their greeting in it is: peace (and well-being). And the end of their prayer is that all praise belongs to God, Master of humankind.
10:11 If God rushes to the badness (and punishment) for the people as much as they want to rush to the good, their term would be complete (and they would be punished). So We leave those who do not expect to meet Us, blindly wandering in their rebellion.
10:12 And when the harm happens to the human being, he calls on Us (lying) on his side or sitting or standing, but when We remove his harm from him, he moves on as if he did not call on Us for harm that happened to him. That is how what they were doing was beautified for the excessive ones.
10:13 And We have certainly destroyed the generations before you when they did wrong, while their messenger brought them the clear proofs and they would not believe. That is how We payback the guilty people.
10:14 Then We made you successors on the earth after them to see how you do.
10:15 When Our clear signs are read to them, those who do not expect to meet Us, say: bring a Quran other than this or change it. Say: it is not for me to change it on my own accord, I only follow what is revealed to me, indeed I am afraid of the punishment of a great day if I disobey my Master.
10:16 Say: if God wanted, I would not have read it to you, and He would not have made you know it, and I have stayed among you a lifetime before that, do you not understand?
10:17 Who is more wrong than someone who makes up a lie (and attributes it) to God or denies His signs? Indeed the guilty ones do not succeed.
10:18 And they serve, other than God, that which does not harm them and does not benefit them, and they say: these are our mediators before God. Say: do you inform God of something that He does not know in the skies or on the earth? He is flawless and is above what they associate (with Him).
10:19 People were only a single community then they disagreed, and if it was not for a word that previously issued from your Master, it would have been judged between them about what they disagreed about it.
10:20 And they say: why a miracle was not send down to him from his Master? Say: the unseen is only for God (to know), so wait and I am with you among those who wait.
10:21 And when We make people taste a mercy after a harm happened to them, they immediately have a plot against Our signs. Say: God is faster in planning. Indeed Our messengers (angels) write down what you plot.
10:22 He is the One who makes you go in the land and the sea until when you were on board the ships and they sailed with them with a nice wind and they were happy with it, then a strong wind came to it and the waves came to them from every side and they thought they were surrounded by it, they called on God being sincere to Him in the religion (saying): if You save us from this, we shall be of the thankful ones.
10:23 But when He saved them, they immediately wronged on the earth unjustifiably. People, your wrong (actions) for enjoyment of this world's life is only against yourselves, then your return is to Us and We inform you of what you were doing.
10:24 The example of this world's life is indeed like a rain that We sent it down from the sky, then the plants of the earth from which the people and the livestock eat, mixes with it, until when the earth takes its decoration and is beautified, and its inhabitants think that they have power over it, then Our command comes to it by night or day and We make it as a mowed down field as if it did not exist the day before. That is how We explain the signs for people who think.
10:25 And God invites to the house of peace (and well-being) and He guides anyone He wants to a straight path.
10:26 For those who did good, is the good (reward) and more, and neither darkness nor humiliation covers their faces. They are inhabitants of the garden remaining in there forever.
10:27 And those who did the bad, payback of bad is equal to it, and humiliation covers them. They have no defender against God, as if their faces are covered with pieces of the night's darkness. They are inhabitants of the fire remaining in there forever.
10:28 On a day that We gather them all, then We say to those who associated (partners with God): at your place, you and your partners. Then We separate them from one another. And their partners say: it was not us that you were serving,
10:29 and God is enough as witness between us and between you, that we were unaware of your servitude.
10:30 There, every person examines what it did before, and they are returned to God, their rightful protector/master, and what they used to make up abandons them.
10:31 Say: who provides you from the sky and the earth, or who owns the hearing and the eyesight, and who brings out the living from the dead and brings out the dead from the living, and who regulates the affairs? They are going to say: God. Then say: will you not be cautious (of Him)?
10:32 This is God, your true Master. What is there after the truth except the error (and lie)? Then, how are you turned away (from the truth).
10:33 That is how your Master's word proved true against those who disobeyed, for indeed they do not believe.
10:34 Say: does any of your partners (of God) initiate the creation then brings it back? Say: God initiates the creation and then brings it back, so how do you deviate?
10:35 Say: does any of your partners (of God) guides to the truth? Say: God guides to the truth, is one who guides to the truth more deserving to be followed or one who does not guide (or does not find the way) unless he is guided, then what is the matter with you? What is your opinion?
10:36 And most of them only follow guess. Indeed the guess has no use against the truth at all. God knows what they do.
10:37 And this Quran is not made up by anyone other than God, and it is a confirmation of what is before it, and an explanation of the book, no doubt about it (that it is) from the Master of Human kind.
10:38 Or do they say: he (Muhammad) made it up? Say: if you are truthful, then bring a chapter like it, and call on anyone you can (for help) other than God.
10:39 No, but they denied that which they did not have knowledge of it, and its interpretation (of its events) have not come to them. Those before them also denied like that. So see what the end of the wrongdoers was.
10:40 And some of them believe in it and some of them do not believe in it, and Your Master best knows the corruptors.
10:41 And if they denied you, then say: my work is for me and your work is for you, you are clear of what I do and I am clear of what you do.
10:42 And some of them listen to you. Can you make the deaf listen even though they do not understand?
10:43 And some of them look at you. Can you guide the blind (by showing the way) even though they do not see?
10:44 Indeed God does not wrong the people at all, but people wrong themselves.
10:45 And a day He gathers them, (will be) as if they only stayed for only an hour of the day. They recognize each other. Those who denied meeting of God have lost and they were not guided.
10:46 And whether We show you some of what We promised them or We make you die (before that), their return is to Us, then God is witness over what they do.
10:47 And for every community is a messenger. So when their messenger comes, it would be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged.
10:48 And they say: when is this promise, if you are truthful?
10:49 Say: I have no power of harm or benefit for myself except what God wants. For every community there is a period (to believe), When their time comes, they cannot delay for an hour or put it forward.
10:50 Say: what do you think, if His punishment comes to you by night or day, what part of it do the guilty ones want to be rushed?
10:51 Would you believe in it when it occurs? Why (believe) now, while you wanted it to be rushed.
10:52 Then it is said to those who did wrong: taste the eternal punishment, are you being punished for (anything) other than what you used to do?
10:53 And they want you to tell if it (the punishment) is true. Say: yes, by my Master, it is indeed true and you cannot disable/escape it.
10:54 And if each person that did wrong, had all that is on the earth, he would have ransomed with it, and he would hide the regret when he sees the punishment. And it will be judged between them with justice and they will not be wronged.
10:55 Know that whatever is in the skies and the earth belongs to God. Know that God’s promise is true, but most of them do not know.
10:56 He gives life and causes death, and you are returned to Him.
10:57 People, an advice has come to you from your Master, and a healing for what is in the chests and a guidance and a mercy for the believers.
10:58 Say: they should be happy with God’s grace and His mercy. That is better than what they accumulate.
10:59 Say: what do you think that God sent down some provisions to you, then you made some of it unlawful and some lawful. Say: did God permit you or you made up lies (and attributed them) to God?
10:60 What do those who make up lies (and attribute them) to God think about the resurrection day? God is indeed gracious to people, but most of them do not thank.
10:61 You are not in any situation/affair, and you do not read any part of Quran, and you do not do any action except We are witness over you when you engage in it. Not even a tiny particle in the earth or in the sky, and not smaller or larger than that, escapes your Master, but it is in a clear book.
10:62 Know that God's friends have no fear and no sadness,
10:63 those who believed and were controlling themselves,
10:64 they have the good news in this world’s life and in the hereafter. There is no change in God's words. That is the great victory.
10:65 And their talk should not make you sad. Indeed all the honor (and power) belongs to God. He hears all and knows all.
10:66 Know that indeed everyone in the skies and on the earth, and whatever partners they follow besides God, belongs to God. They only follow the speculation, and they only guess.
10:67 He is the One who made the night for you to rest in it and the day to see. There are signs in that for people who listen.
10:68 They said: God took a child. He is flawless, He has no need, everything in the skies and on the earth belongs to Him. You have no reason for this. Do you say about God what you do not know?
10:69 Say: those who make up lies (and attribute them) to God do not succeed.
10:70 A little enjoyment in this world, then their return is to Us, then We make them taste the severe punishment for what they used to disbelieve.
10:71 And read them story of Noah, when he said to his people: people, if my position and my reminding you of God's signs is hard on you, I put my trust in God, so you and your partners (of God) get your affair together, so your affair should be clear to you, then carry it out against me and do not wait.
10:72 But if you turn away, (then remember that) I did not ask you for any wage, my wage is upon God, and I have been ordered to be of the submitted.
10:73 They denied him, so We saved him and those with him in the Ark, and We made them successors, and We drowned those who denied Our signs. So see what the end of those who were warned was?
10:74 Then after him We sent messengers to their people, and they brought them the clear proofs, but they were not to believe in what they denied it in the past. That is how We seal the heart of those who exceed the limits.
10:75 Then after them, We sent Moses and Aaron with Our signs to Pharaoh and his assembly, but they acted arrogantly and they were guilty people.
10:76 When the truth came to them from Us, they said: this is an obvious magic.
10:77 Moses said: do you say about the truth that came to you, that is this magic? And the magicians do not succeed.
10:78 They said: did you come to us to turn us away from what we found our fathers upon it, and you two become great in the land? We are not believers in you two.
10:79 And Pharaoh said: bring me every knowledgeable magician.
10:80 And when the magicians came, Moses told them: throw what you want to throw.
10:81 When they threw, Moses said: what you brought is the magic, indeed God is going to make it useless. Indeed God does not improve the work of the corruptors.
10:82 God proves the truth with His words, even if the guilty ones dislike it.
10:83 No one believed in Moses except a group of descendants of his people, because of fear of Pharaoh and his assembly that they persecute them. Indeed Pharaoh was powerful on the earth and he was among the excessive ones.
10:84 And Moses said: my people, if you believe in God, then put your trust in Him if you are submitted.
10:85 Then they said: we put our trust in God, our Master, do not make us a test for the wrongdoing people,
10:86 and save us from the disbelieving people by Your mercy.
10:87 And We revealed to Moses and his brother: settle your people in Egypt's houses, and make your houses face each other (or make them places of worship) and perform the mandatory prayer, and give good news to the believers.
10:88 And Moses said: our Master, you gave Pharaoh and his assembly luxury and wealth in this world’s life; our Master, they misguide (people) from your way; our Master, destroy their wealth and harden their hearts for they will not believe until they see the painful punishment.
10:89 He (God) said: prayer of you two has been answered, so stay on course (and persevere) and do not follow the way of those who do not know.
10:90 And We made the children of Israel cross the sea, then Pharaoh and his troops followed them aggressively and with hatred, until when the drowning overtook him, he said: I believe that there is no god except the One that the children of Israel believed in Him, and I am of the submitted.
10:91 (He was told:) now!? while you have disobeyed in the past and you were of the corruptors.
10:92 Today, We save your (dead) body so that you may be a sign for those who succeed you. Indeed a lot of people are negligent of Our signs.
10:93 And We settled down the children of Israel in an excellent settlement, and provided them with the good things, and they only disagreed after the knowledge came to them. Indeed on the resurrection day your Master judges between them regarding what they used to disagree about it.
10:94 (Muhammad,) if you are in doubt about what We sent down to you, then ask those who read the book (that was sent down) before you. Indeed the truth has come to you from your Master, so do not be of the doubters.
10:95 And do not be among those who denied God's signs, for you would become of the losers.
10:96 Indeed those whom the word of your Master proved against them would not believe,
10:97 even if every sign (miracle) comes to them, until they see the painful punishment.
10:98 Why there was no town that believed and their belief benefited them except the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed the humiliating punishment in this world’s life from them, and We let them enjoy for a while (in their lifetime).
10:99 And if your Master wanted, everyone on the earth would have believed altogether. Do you then force the people to become believers?
10:100 No one is to believe except with God’s permission (according to His laws), and He puts the filth on those who do not understand.
10:101 Say: look at what is in the skies and the earth. But the signs and the warnings is of no use to people who do not believe.
10:102 Are they waiting for days like those who passed before them? Say: wait and I am with you among the waiters.
10:103 Then (at the end) We save our messengers and those who believe. It is Our responsibility to save the believers.
10:104 Say: people, if you are in doubt about my way of life (religion), then (know that) I do not serve those you serve other than God, but I serve God, the One who makes you die, and I am ordered to be of the believers,
10:105 and (I am also ordered) that: set your course (and purpose) to the way of life of monotheism and do not be of the polytheists,
10:106 and do not call on other than God, that which does not benefit you or harm you, and if you do, then you are indeed of the wrongdoers,
10:107 and if God afflicts you with harm, no one can remove it except Him, and if He wants good for you, no one can hold back His grace, He allocates it to any of His servants He wants, and He is the forgiving and the merciful.
10:108 Say: people, the truth has come to you from your Master, so anyone who is guided then he is only guided for himself, and whoever lost (the right path) then he has only erred against himself, and I am not your advocate.
10:109 And follow what is revealed to you and persevere (and be patient) until God judges. He is the best of the judges.
