Abdul Hye rendition of Surah The Prophets(al-Anbiya`)
21:1 (The Day of) their reckoning draws near for mankind, yet they are heedless and turn away (from warning).
21:2 (Every time) an admonition from their Lord comes to them as a recent revelation, but they listen to it while they play.
21:3 In a light mood their hearts are occupied (with evil things), and they conceal the private counsels, those who do wrong (say): “Is this (Muhammad) but a human being like you? Will you submit to magic while you see it?”
21:4 He (Muhammad) said: “My Lord knows every word spoken in the heavens and the earth. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.”
21:5 Nay, they say: “(These revelations of the Qur’an are) strange false dreams! Nay, he (Muhammad) has invented it! Nay, he is a poet! Let him then bring us a sign as the ancients (previous prophets) did!”
21:6 Not one town (people) before them believed (though Allah sent signs), which We destroyed. Will they then believe?
21:7 And We did not send before you (O Muhammad) but human to whom We revealed. So you ask the people of the reminder (Scripture - the Torah and the Gospel) if you don’t know.
21:8 And We did not create them (the Messengers with) bodies which did not eat food, nor they were immortals.
21:9 Then We fulfilled to them the promise. We saved them, and those whom We willed, but We destroyed the extravagant.
21:10 Indeed, We have sent down for you (O mankind) a book (the Qur’an) in which there is your reminder (to follow). Will you not then understand?
21:11 How many nations have We destroyed who were wrongdoers and raised up (replaced) them with other nations!
21:12 When they perceived that Our Punishment was coming, behold, they fled from it.
21:13 (They were told): “Don’t flee but return to your luxurious life and to your homes so that you may be questioned.
21:14 They said: “Woe to us! Surely we were wrongdoers.”
21:15 And then their cry did not cease till We made them as a field that was reaped (all dead).
21:16 We have not created the heavens, the earth, and all that lies between them as a game.
21:17 Had We intended to take a pastime, surely We could have taken it from Us, if We were going to do that.
21:18 Nay, We have sent down the truth (this Qur’an) against the falsehood so it destroys it, and then it (falsehood) is vanished. Woe to you for that (false deity) which you ascribe.
21:19 To Him belongs whoever is in the heavens and on earth. And those who are near Him (the angels), are neither proud from worshiping Him, nor they are tired (of His worship).
21:20 They (the angels) glorify Him night and day, they never pause.
21:21 Or have they taken ones worthy of worship from the earth who (has the power to) raise the dead?
21:22 Had there been ones worthy of worship besides Allah in it (heavens and the earth), surely both would have been ruined (by disorder). Glory be to Allah, the Lord of the Throne (high above all falsehood) that they attribute (to Him)!
21:23 He cannot be questioned as to what He does, while they will be questioned.
21:24 Or have they taken other deities for worship besides Him? Say: “Bring your proof. This (the Qur’an) is a reminder for those who are with me and reminder for those before me.” But most of them don’t know the truth, so they are reluctant.
21:25 And We did not send any Messenger before you (O Muhammad) but We revealed to him (every one saying) that: “There is no one worthy of worship but I, so worship Me (alone).”
21:26 And (after receiving message still) they say: “The Gracious (Allah) has begotten a son.” Glory to Him! They (angels) are but honored servants.
21:27 They don’t speak until He has spoken and they act on His Command.
21:28 He knows what is before them, what is behind them, and they don’t intercede except for the one with whom He is pleased. They stand in awe from the fear of Him.
21:29 And if anyone of them should say: “Surely I am one worthy of worship besides Him,” then We would recompense to hell. Thus We recompense the wrongdoers.
21:30 Have not the disbelievers known that the heavens and the earth were once joined together (as one piece) and then We parted them? And We have made every living thing from water. Will they still not believe?
21:31 And We have placed firm mountains on the earth lest it should shake with them and We placed in them broad passages so that they may be guided.
21:32 And We have made the heaven a roof, safe, and well guarded. Yet they turn away from its signs.
21:33 And it is He Who has created the night, the day, the sun, and the moon, each in a floating orbit (of their own).
21:34 And We have not granted immortality to any human being before you (Muhammad), then if you die, will they (disbelievers) live forever?
21:35 Everyone is going to taste death, and We shall test all of you with evil and with good as a temptation. And to Us you will be returned.
21:36 And when you (Muhammad) see those who disbelieve, they don’t take you except for mockery (saying): “Is this the one who talks against your deity?” They disbelieve at the mention of the Gracious (Allah).
21:37 Man is a creature of haste (impatient). I will show you My Signs, so don’t ask Me to hasten.
21:38 And they ask: “When will this promise (be fulfilled) if you are truthful?”
21:39 (They would not ask) if the disbelievers knew the time when they will neither be able to protect their faces from the fire nor their backs, and they will not be helped.
21:40 Nay, it (the fire) will come to them all of a sudden and will perplex them, so they will neither be able to avert it nor they will get any respite.
21:41 Indeed Messengers were mocked before you (O Muhammad), but those who mocked were surrounded by what they used to mock at.
21:42 Say: “Who can protect you in the night and the day from the (punishment of) the Gracious?” Nay, but they turn away from the remembrance of their Lord.
21:43 Or do they have (ones worthy of worship) who can guard them from Us? They have neither any power to help themselves, nor can they be protected from Us (punishment).
21:44 Nay, We gave luxuries (of this life to) these people and their forefathers until the life grew long for them. Don’t they then see how We (gradually) reduce the land (their control) from its all sides? Is it then they who will overcome (be victorious)
21:45 Say (O Muhammad): “I warn you only by the revelation (from Allah).” But the deaf will not hear the call when they are warned.
21:46 And if a breath (minor calamity) of punishment of your Lord touches them, surely they will cry: “Woe to us! Surely, we were wrongdoers.”
21:47 And We shall set up the balances of justice on the Day of Resurrection so that no one will be dealt with unjustly at all. If there is (an act as small as the) weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it (to account). And We are sufficient as Reckoner (accountant).
21:48 And indeed We granted to Moses and Aaron the criterion (of right and wrong), a shining light (Torah), and a reminder for the pious
21:49 those who fear their Lord with unseen while they are afraid of the Hour (of Judgment).
21:50 And this is a blessed reminder (the Qur’an) which We have sent down. Will you then deny it?
21:51 And indeed We gave Abraham his guidance from before and We were Well-Acquainted with him.
21:52 When he said to his father and his people: “What are these images which you are devoted to?”
21:53 They said: “We found our forefathers worshipping to them.”
21:54 He said: “Indeed you and your forefathers have been in clear error.”
21:55 They said: “Have you brought us the truth, or are you one of those who play?”
21:56 He replied: “Nay, your Lord is the Owner of the heavens and the earth, Who has created them, and I am one of the witnesses to that.
21:57 And by Allah, surely I will plot a plan against your idols after you go away and turn your backs.”
21:58 So he made them fragments, except the biggest of them so that they might turn to it.
21:59 (When they retuned and saw their idols) some said: “Who has done this to our deity? Surely he is among the wrongdoers.”
21:60 Others said: “We heard a young man talking against them who is called Abraham.”
21:61 They said: “Then bring him before the eyes of the people, so that they may testify.”
21:62 They asked: “Have you done this to our deity, O Abraham?”
21:63 (Abraham) said: “Nay, this one, the biggest of them did it. Ask them, if they can speak!”
21:64 So they turned to themselves and said: “Surely you are the wrongdoers.”
21:65 Then they turned to themselves (and said): “Indeed you (Abraham) know that these (idols) cannot speak!”
21:66 (Abraham) said: “Do you then worship these deities besides Allah, who can neither profit you nor harm you?
21:67 Shame on you and on those deities which you worship besides Allah! Don’t you think?”
21:68 They said: “Burn him and help your deity, if you will be doing (any action).”
21:69 (When he was thrown in the fire) We commanded: “O fire! Be cool and safe for Abraham!”
21:70 And they wanted to harm him, but We made them the worst losers.
21:71 And We rescued him and (his nephew) Lot to the land which We have blessed for the worlds.
21:72 And We bestowed upon him a (son) Isaac and a (grandson) Jacob as an extra. We made each one righteous.
21:73 And We made them leaders to guide (mankind) by Our Command, We revealed to them (how to) do good deeds, establish prayer, give obligatory charity, and they were the worshippers of Us.
21:74 And (remember) Lot, We gave him right judgment, knowledge, and We saved him from the town (people) who were doing wicked and filthy deeds. Surely, they were people of evil, wicked.
21:75 And We admitted him to Our Mercy; surely he was of the righteous.
21:76 And (remember) Noah, when he cried (to Us) previously. We answered to him, then saved him, and his family from the great distress.
21:77 We helped him against those people who denied Our Verses. Surely they were an evil people. So We drowned (in the great flood) them all.
21:78 And (remember) David and Solomon, when they gave judgment in the case of the field in which the sheep of certain people had pastured (at night) and We were witness to their judgment,
21:79 so We made Solomon to understand it, We gave right judgment, and knowledge. And We subjected the mountains and the birds to glorify Our Praises along with David. We Who were the doer (of all these things).
21:80 And We taught him to make metal coats of mail (for battles) for you to protect you in your fighting. Yet, are you grateful?
21:81 And to Solomon (We subjected) the strongly raging wind, running by his command towards the land which We had blessed. We know everything.
21:82 And some of the devils dived for him (into the sea), did other work besides that, and We Who guarded over them (for him).
21:83 And (remember) Job, when he cried to his Lord: “Surely the distress (disease) has seized me and You are the Merciful of all those who show mercy.”
21:84 We answered to him, then We removed the distress that was with him, We restored his family to him (that he lost) and many more with them as a Mercy from Us, and as a reminder for those who worship (Us).
21:85 And (remember) Ishmael, Enoch, and Isaiah: all were from among the patient ones.
21:86 And We admitted them to Our Mercy. Surely, they were of the righteous.
21:87 And (remember) Jonah, when he departed in anger and thought that We shall not punish him! Then he cried in the darkness (saying): “There is no one worthy of worship but You, You are glorified. Truly, I have been from the wrongdoers.”
21:88 So We answered to him and delivered him from the distress. And thus We deliver the believers.
21:89 And (remember) Zachariah, when he cried to his Lord: “O My Lord! Don’t leave me single (childless) and You are the best of the inheritors.”
21:90 So We answered him, We bestowed on him John, and cured his wife (to bear a child) for him. Surely, they used to hasten to do good deeds, they used to call on Us with hope and fear, and they were humble before Us.
21:91 And (remember) her (Mary) who guarded her chastity, then We breathed into her through Our spirit (Gabriel), and We made her and her son (Jesus) a sign for the worlds.
21:92 Truly! This brotherhood of yours is one religion and I am your Lord, so worship Me (alone).
21:93 But they have broken up their religion (into sects) among all of them. They shall return to Us.
21:94 Whoever shall do righteous deeds and is a believer, then those efforts will not be rejected. Surely We record all for him.
21:95 And a ban is laid on town (those people) which We have destroyed, they shall not return again.
21:96 Until, when Gog and Magog are let loose (from their barrier) and they swiftly swarm down from every mound,
21:97 and the true Promise (Day of Resurrection) shall draw near (of fulfillment). Then it will be fixed gazes (staring with horror) of the disbelievers. (They will say): “Woe to us! Indeed we were heedless from this; nay we were wrongdoers.”
21:98 Certainly! You (disbelievers) and your deities whom you worship besides Allah, shall be fuel for hell! You all will enter it.
21:99 If these (deities) were worthy of worship, they would not have entered it (hell), and all of them will abide in it.
21:100 They will be breathing out with deep sighs and roaring in it. They will not hear (anything else) in it.
21:101 Surely, those for whom the good (reward) has preceded from Us, they will be removed far away from it (hell).
21:102 They shall not hear even the slightest sound of it (hell) and they will abide in the middle of what their souls desire.
21:103 The greatest terror (on the Day of Resurrection) will not grieve them, and the angels will meet them (with the greeting): “This is your Day which you were promised.”
21:104 And (remember) the Day when We shall roll up the heavens like a rolled up scroll for books, just as We began the first creation, We shall repeat it again, and it is a Promise upon Us. Truly, We shall fulfill it.
21:105 And indeed We have written this in the Psalms after the book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz, which is in the heaven with Allah) that My righteous servants shall inherit the land.
21:106 Surely, in this (the Qur’an) indeed there is a plain message for people who worship Allah.
21:107 And We have not sent you (O Muhammad) but as a Mercy for the worlds.
21:108 Say (O Muhammad): “It is revealed only to me that your one worthy of worship is One (Allah). Will you then submit (to His Will and become Muslim)?”
21:109 But if they (disbelievers) turn away (from Islam), then say (to them O Muhammad): “I give you a notice (warning) all alike. I don’t know whether what you are promised (punishment) is near or far
21:110 (Say O Muhammad) Surely, He (Allah) knows from the spoken loud word and knows that which you conceal.
21:111 And I don’t know, perhaps it (the delay) may be a trial for you, and an enjoyment for a while.”
21:112 He (Muhammad) said: “My Lord, judge us in truth! (O people) our Lord is the Gracious whose help is sought against that which you attribute!”
