Syed Vickar Ahamed rendition of Surah The Poets(ash-Shu`ara`)
26:1 Ta Sin Mim
26:2 These are verses of the Book that clarifies (all the many things)
26:3 It may be that you upset your soul with sorrow, because they do not become believers
26:4 If (it) was Our Will, We can send down a Sign from the heaven to them, to which they will bow their necks in humility
26:5 But to them, there does not come (even) one new revelation from (Allah,) the Most Gracious (Ar-Rahman), but they (already) turn away from it
26:6 Truly, they have rejected (the Message): So they will soon know the truth about that which they made fun
26:7 Do they not look at the earth— How many noble things of all types We have produced in there
26:8 Surely, there is a Sign in this: But most of them do not believe
26:9 And surely, your Lord is He, (Who is) Exalted in Might (Aziz), Most Merciful (Raheem)
26:10 And (remember) when, your Lord called unto Musa (and said): "Go to the people who are wrongdoers&mdash
26:11 "The people of Firon (Pharaoh): Will they not fear Allah?"
26:12 Said (Musa): "O my Lord! I fear that they may deny me (and accuse me of falsehood)
26:13 "My chest may become strained: And my speech may not go smoothly; So send forth (with me) Haroon (Aaron)
26:14 "And they have a charge of crime against me; And I fear that they may kill me."
26:15 Said (Allah): "Not at all! Now both of you go with Our Signs; Verily, We are with you, and (We) will listen (to you)
26:16 "So both of you, go forth to Firon (Pharaoh), and say: ‘We are the messengers of the Lord (and Cherisher) of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:17 "‘You send with us the Children of Israel.’"
26:18 (Firon) said (to Musa): "Did we not cherish you as a child with us, and did you not stay many years of your life amidst us
26:19 "And you did an act that which you did (killed an Egyptian) and you are a thankless (wretch)!"
26:20 Musa (Moses) said: "I did it then, when I was wrong
26:21 "So, I ran away from (all of) you, when I feared you; But (after that) my Lord has granted me judgment (and wisdom) and made me one of the messengers
26:22 "And this is the old favor with which you put me to shame— That you have made the Children of Israel, (your) slaves!"
26:23 Firon (Pharaoh) said: "And what is the ‘Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)’?"
26:24 Said (Musa): "The Lord and Cherisher (Rab) of the heavens and the earth, and all between— If you want to be quite sure."
26:25 Said (Pharaoh) to those around: "Do you not listen (to what he says)?"
26:26 Musa (Moses) said: "Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers (right) from the beginning!"
26:27 Said (Firon): "Truly, your messenger who has been sent to you is undeniably a madman!"
26:28 Said (Musa): "Lord of the East and the West, and all between! If you only had the sense (to understand)!"
26:29 Said (Firon): "If you bring forward any god other than me, I will really put you in prison!"
26:30 Said (Musa): "Even if I showed you something clear (enough) to make you believe?"
26:31 Said (Firon): "Show it then, if you tell the truth!"
26:32 So (Musa) threw his rod, and look, it was a (huge) snake, clearly (for all to see)
26:33 And he drew out his hand, and look! It was white (and bright) to the seers
26:34 (Firon) said to the chiefs around him: "This is truly a magician of high skill."
26:35 His plan is to get you out of your land by his magic; Then what is it (that you) command
26:36 They said: "Keep him and his brother in suspense, and send out the callers to the cities to collect&mdash
26:37 "And bring to you all magicians of high skill."
26:38 So, the magicians were brought together for the event on a well known day
26:39 And the people were told: “Are you (all now) gathered
26:40 That we may follow (the religion of) the magicians, if they win?&rdquo
26:41 So, when the magicians arrived, they said to Firon (Pharaoh): "Truly— Shall we have a (worthy) reward if we win?"
26:42 Said (Firon): "Yes, (and more)— Because, in that case (if you win), you will be (given positions) near (to me)."
26:43 Said Musa (Moses) to them: "You throw— Whatever you are about to throw!"
26:44 So, they threw their ropes and their rods, and said: "By the might of Firon (Pharaoh), it is we who will really win!"
26:45 Then (Musa) threw his rod, when, look! It right away swallows up all the lies that they make up
26:46 Then the magicians fell down, prostrate in praise
26:47 Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:48 "The Lord of Musa (Moses) and Haroon (Aaron)."
26:49 Said (Firon): "Will you believe in Him (Allah) before I give you permission? Surely, he (Musa) is your chief, who has taught you magic! But you will know soon! Be sure I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will cause you all to die on the cross!"
26:50 They said: "(That) does not matter! About us, we shall only go back to our Lord
26:51 Verily, our desire is that our Lord will forgive us for our mistakes, that we may become first among the believers!"
26:52 By inspiration We revealed to Musa (Moses): "Go (away from Firon) by night with My servants; Because surely, you will be chased."
26:53 Then Firon (Pharaoh) sent news to (all) the Cities
26:54 "These (people) are only a small group
26:55 "And they are very angry against us
26:56 "But we are a many more with enough warning."
26:57 So We expelled them from gardens, springs
26:58 Treasures, and every kind of honorable position
26:59 It was like this, that We made the Children of Israel inheritors of these things
26:60 So they (Firon) chased them (Musa and the Israelites) at sunrise
26:61 And when the two groups saw each other, the Musa's (Moses’) people said: "We are sure to be overtaken (and overrun)."
26:62 (Musa) said: "Not at all! My Lord is with me! He will soon guide me!"
26:63 Then We told Musa (Moses) by revelation: "Strike the sea with your rod." And so, it (the sea) divided, and each separate part became like the huge, firm part of a mountain
26:64 And We made the other people come there
26:65 We saved Musa (Moses) and all who were with him
26:66 Then We drowned the others
26:67 Surely, there is a Sign in this: But most of them do not believe
26:68 And surely your Lord is He (Who is), the Exalted in Might (Al-Aziz), Most Merciful (Raheem)
26:69 And recite to them Ibrahim (Abraham)’s story
26:70 When he said to his father and his people "What do you worship?"
26:71 They said: "We worship idols, and we remain attending to them always."
26:72 He said: "Do they listen to you when you call unto (them
26:73 "Or do (they) cause (any) good or harm to you?"
26:74 They said: "No, but we found our fathers doing like this (what we do)."
26:75 He said: "Then do you see what you have been worshipping&mdash
26:76 "You and your fathers before you
26:77 "Verily, they are enemies to me; except the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:78 "Who created me, and it is He Who guides me
26:79 "And it is He Who gives me food and gives me drink
26:80 "And when I am ill, it is He Who cures me
26:81 "And it is He Who will cause me to die, and then bring me to life (again)
26:82 "And Who, I hope, will forgive me for my mistakes on the Day of Resurrection.
26:83 "O my Lord! Give me wisdom, and join me with the righteous (people)
26:84 "And give me honorable saying on the tongue of truth of the later (generations) to come
26:85 "And make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of (Eternal) Joy (the Paradise)
26:86 "And forgive my father, verily, he is among those who go astray
26:87 "And let me not be in disgrace on the Day when (men) will be raised up;"&mdash
26:88 The Day when neither wealth nor sons will be of (any) use
26:89 Except only he who brings to Allah a good heart (will be treated well)
26:90 The Garden will be brought near to the righteous
26:91 And the Fire will be placed in full sight to those lost in evil
26:92 And it shall be said to them: "Where are the (gods that) you worshipped&mdash
26:93 "Besides Allah? Can they help you or help themselves?"
26:94 Then they will be cast right into the (Fire)— They and those lost in evil
26:95 And the whole groups from (the race of) Satan altogether
26:96 They will say, while they quarrel in there
26:97 " ‘By Allah, truly, we were in a clear error
26:98 " ‘When we held you (Satan) as equal to the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:99 " ‘And none has led us astray except those who were criminals, (deeply) soaked in sin
26:100 " ‘Then, we have none to intercede (for us) now
26:101 " ‘Nor a close single friend to feel (sorry for us now)
26:102 "Now if we only had a chance to return, we shall truly be of those who believe!’ "
26:103 Surely in this is a Sign but most of them do not believe
26:104 And surely your Lord is He (Who is) the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:105 The people of Nuh (Noah) denied the messengers
26:106 When their brother Nuh (Noah) said to them: "Will you not fear and obey (Allah, in total trust or Taq'wa)
26:107 "I am to you a messenger fit for all trust
26:108 "So fear Allah, and obey me
26:109 "I do not ask for any reward for it from you: My reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds
26:110 "So fear Allah, and obey me."
26:111 They said: "Shall we believe in you when it is the lowliest who follow you?"
26:112 He (Noah) said: "And what do I know about what they do
26:113 "Their account is only with my Lord, if you can (only) understand
26:114 "I am not one to drive away those who believe
26:115 "I am only a plain Warner (to warn you clearly)."
26:116 They said: "O Nuh (Noah)! If you do no stop, you will be stoned (to death)."
26:117 He said: "O my Lord! Truly my people have rejected me
26:118 Then, You judge between me and them openly, and save me and those of the believers who are with me."
26:119 And We saved him and those with him, in the Ark full of (all of creatures)
26:120 After that We drowned those who remained behind
26:121 Surely in this is a Sign but most of them do not believe
26:122 And surely your Lord is He (Who is) the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:123 The ‘Ad (people) rejected the messengers
26:124 When their brother Hud said to them; "Will you not fear (Allah)
26:125 "Verily, I am to you a messenger fit for all trust
26:126 "So fear Allah and obey me
26:127 "I do not ask for any reward for it from you: My reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:128 "Do you build an important place on every high place to bring joy to yourselves
26:129 And do you get for yourselves fine buildings with the hope of living in there (for ever)
26:130 "And when you play your strong hand (with force), do you act like cruel men with absolute power
26:131 "Now fear Allah, and obey me
26:132 "Yes, fear Him Who has given you freely all that you know
26:133 "He has freely given you cattle and sons&mdash
26:134 "And gardens and springs
26:135 "Truly, I fear the Penalty of a Great Day for you."
26:136 They said: "It is the same for us if you preach (warn) us or do not be among (our) warners
26:137 "This is nothing different from the customary actions of the ancient (people)
26:138 "And we are not the ones to take pains and penalties!"
26:139 So they rejected him, and We destroyed them. Surely there is a Sign in this but most of them do not believe
26:140 And surely your Lord is He (Who is) the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:141 The Samood (Thamud people) rejected the messengers
26:142 When their brother Salih said to them: "Will you not fear (Allah)
26:143 "I am to you a messenger fit for all trust
26:144 "So fear Allah, and obey m
26:145 "I do not ask for any reward for it from you: My reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:146 "Will you be left safe (for ever), in (the enjoyment of) all that you have here
26:147 "In gardens and springs
26:148 "And corn-fields and date palms with their (leafy) covers almost breaking (with the weight of fruit
26:149 "And you dig out houses out of (rocky) mountains with high skill
26:150 "But fear Allah and obey me
26:151 "And do not follow the call of those who are wasteful&mdash
26:152 "Who do mischief in the land, and do not correct (their ways)."
26:153 They said: "You are only one of those under a (magical) spell
26:154 "You are no more than a human like us: "Then bring us a Sign, if you tell the truth!"
26:155 He said: "Here is a she-camel: She has a right to (come to the) water, and you have a right to (come to the) water, on a day appointed
26:156 "And do not touch her with harm, or the penalty of the Great Day seize you."
26:157 But they killed her (by cutting the hamstrings): Then they became full of sorrow
26:158 But the penalty seized them, surely there is indeed a Sign in this but most of them do not believe
26:159 And surely your Lord is He (Who is), the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:160 The people of Lut (Lot) rejected the messengers
26:161 When their brother Lut (Lot) said to them: "Will you not fear (Allah)
26:162 "Verily, I am to you a messenger fit for all trust
26:163 "So, fear Allah and obey me
26:164 "I do not ask for any reward for it from you: My reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:165 "Will you run after males, of all creation (made) in the worlds
26:166 "And leave those (the females) whom Allah has made for you to be your wives? No! You are a people exceeding (all moral limits)!"
26:167 They said: "O Lut (Lot)! If you do not stop, you will surely be one of those driven out!"
26:168 He said: "I am one of those who disapproves your acts (of sodomy) with severe hate and anger
26:169 "O my Lord! Save me and my family from such things like what they do!"
26:170 So, We saved him and his family— All
26:171 Except an old woman who kept behind
26:172 But the rest We destroyed totally
26:173 And, We rained down on them a shower (of hard clay-stone): And evil was the shower on those who were warned (but did not listen)
26:174 Surely there is a Sign in this but most of them do not believe
26:175 And surely your Lord is He (Who is) the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:176 The companions of the Wood rejected the messengers
26:177 When Shu’aib said to them: "Will you not fear (Allah)
26:178 "I am to you a messenger fit for all trust
26:179 "So fear Allah and obey me
26:180 "I do not ask for any reward for it from you: My reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:181 "Give proper measure (to others) and do not make loss (for others by cheating)
26:182 "And weigh with true and upright scales
26:183 "And do not defraud (hold back) things that are truly due to men, and do no evil in the land, by making mischief
26:184 "And fear Him Who created you and the generations before (you)."
26:185 They said: "You are only one of those under a (magical) spell
26:186 "You are no more than a human like us: And really, we think that you one of the liars
26:187 "Now make a piece of the sky to fall on us, if you are truthful!"
26:188 He said: "My Lord knows well what you do."
26:189 But they denied him. Then the punishment of a day of great sorrow seized them, indeed that was the penalty of a Great Day
26:190 Surely, in that, there is a Sign but most of them do not believe
26:191 And surely your Lord is He (Who is) the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:192 And Truly, this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds (Rab-ul-'Ala'meen)
26:193 With this (the Quran), the Spirit [Gabriel] of truth came down (to bring it)&mdash
26:194 To your heart and (to your) mind that you (O Prophet) may warn and guid
26:195 In clear (and easily understood) Arabic tongue
26:196 And without doubt it is (from) the mystic Books of the earlier peoples
26:197 Is it not a Sign to them that the learned from the Children of Israel knew it (as true)
26:198 If We had revealed it to any of the non-Arabs
26:199 And if he read it to them, they would not have believed in it
26:200 Like this We have made it enter the hearts (and minds) of the criminals
26:201 They will not believe in it until they see the painful penalty
26:202 But the (penalty) will come to them swiftly, when they are not aware of it
26:203 Then they will say: Will we be given some relief
26:204 Then do they ask them for Our Penalty to be hurried on
26:205 Do you see? (Even) if We let them enjoy (this life) for a few years
26:206 And still at the end, there will come to them (the punishment) that they were promised
26:207 It will not help them that they enjoyed (this life)
26:208 And We never ruined a population that did not have its warners&mdash
26:209 As a reminder (to mankind); And We never are unjust
26:210 And no Satans' (or the Evil ones) have brought down this (Message)
26:211 It would not befit them, and they would not be able (to produce it)
26:212 As a fact, they have been removed far away from even hearing it
26:213 So do not call on any other god with Allah, or you will be from those under the penalty
26:214 And advise and warn your nearest relatives
26:215 And lower you arms (as greetings) to the believers who follow you
26:216 Even then, if they disobey you, say: I am free (of responsibility) for what you do
26:217 And place your trust on the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
26:218 Who sees you standing up (in prayer)
26:219 And (sees) your movements among those who prostrate themselves
26:220 Verily, it is He Who hears and knows all things
26:221 (O my people!) Shall I inform you, on whom it is that Satans' (or the Evil ones) come down
26:222 They come down on every lying, sinful person
26:223 (In their ears) they fill half-true, worthless things, and most of them are liars
26:224 As for the poets— Those astray (in evil) who follow them
26:225 Do you not see that they (anxiously) speak about every subject (of lies and sin) in their poetry
26:226 And that they say what they do not do
26:227 Except those who believe and work rightfully, and do much in the remembering of Allah, and (act to) defend themselves only after they are wrongly attacked. And soon will the unjust attackers know what sudden changes their actions will take
