11:1  A. L. R.       A Book — its Statements are given an established meaning, further on (these) have been provided with full details from the One Who is All-Wise, All-Aware —
11:2  that you must not pay obedience but to Allah. Verily I am unto you, from Him, a warner and a bringer of glad tidings
11:3  And that you should seek the forgiveness of your Nourisher-Sustainer, then turn to Him in repentance. He will provide you good provision for a term appointed, and He will bestow His Grace on all those who are in possession of (any) grace. But if you turned away, then I fear for you the punishment of a Great Day
11:4  To Allah is your returning place, and He is All-Capable over all things
11:5  Beware! They surely fold their chests so that they may hide (even further the position of their hearts) from Him. Behold! (Even) while they cover up (over them) their garments, He (still) knows what they hide and what they reveal. Verily, He is All-Knower of the condition of the chests
11:6  And there is not of a moving/living creature on earth but on Allah (lies the responsibility) of its provision. And He knows its dwelling place and its place for getting finally disposed off: All this is in a manifest record
11:7  And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six aeons and His Throne was on the water so that He may try you, which of you is better in deeds. And if you said to them, surely, you will be the Resurrected people after death, surely will say those who have disbelieved, 'this is nothing but obvious magic.
11:8  And if We had delayed from them the torment till a determined term, they will surely say: “What keeps it back?” Beware! The Day it approaches them, then (it will) not (become) detached from them; and engulfed them that at which they used to mock
11:9  And if We made the man taste from Us Mercy, and then We withdrew it from him, verily, he is indeed despairing, ungrateful
11:10  And certainly, if We made him taste bounties after helplessness (in poverty and/or illness that) has touched him, he is sure to say: “The ills have departed from me.” Surely, he is indeed jubilant (and) boastful
11:11  except those who remained perseverant and did righteous deeds, those: for them is forgiveness and a great reward
11:12  So perchance you may be one who disowns some of what has been revealed to you, and one who makes burdened his chest thereby, because they say: “Why not a treasure has been sent down unto him, or an angel came with him?” But you are (only) a warner. And Allah is over all things a Wakil
11:13  Or they say: “He has forged it.” Say: “Then come with ten Surahs similar to it which could be forged by you and you may call whomsoever you could besides Allah (as your helpers in this attempt for forgery) if you happen to be those who speak the truth.
11:14  Then if they did not give you any response, then know that surely, it has been revealed with the Knowledge coming from Allah and that La-ilaha-illa-Huwa! Will you then be Muslims
11:15  Whosoever used to desire the life of this world and its glitter, We shall allot in full to them (the rewards of) their deeds therein, and they therein will not be paid any less than due
11:16  They are those, there is nothing for them in the Hereafter except the Fire. And stood lost what they invented therein and (becomes) vain what they used to practice
11:17  So, whether that who is on Bayyinah from his Nourisher-Sustainer, and he recites it becoming a Witness from within it- and (even) since before this (era) Kitab-o-Musa (had been ordained as) Imam and Rahmah — those people (who study, ponder and become a witness from within) are the ones who develop Faith in it; and whoever disbelieves in it out of the various sects, then the Fire is the promised abode for him. Fa-la-Tako-fi-miryatin-minho (so be not in doubt about it). Definitely it is Al-Haqq coming from your Nourisher-Sustainer. But most of the mankind Believe not
11:18  And who is one who does more wrong than that who invented against Allah a lie? Such people will be produced before their Nourisher-Sustainer and the Witnesses will say: ''These are those who lied against their Nourisher-Sustainer!” Behold! The curse of Allah is on the Zalimun
11:19  those who hinder from the Path of Allah and seek therein crookedness and they, about the Hereafter, they are disbelievers
11:20  Those people: they shall not be those who can frustrate (Allah) on the earth. And there is not for them besides Allah any one out of the protectors. The punishment shall be enhanced for them. They had not been capable of hearing and they had not been such that they may be seeing (the reality)
11:21  They are those who damaged their selves; and vanished from them whatever they used to invent in falsehood
11:22  No doubt! That they, in the Hereafter: they are the greatest losers
11:23  Certainly, those who have Believed and did righteous deeds and humbled (themselves) before their Nourisher-Sustainer — they are the companions of the Garden, they are dwellers therein
11:24  The like of (such) two groups (is) as the more blind and more deaf; and one who (is) deep in sight and deep in hearing. Are the two equal when compared? Will you then not take heed
11:25  And indeed, We sent Nuh to his nation (and he addressed them thus): “Certainly, I am unto you a plain warner
11:26  that you do not pay obedience except to Allah; surely, I fear for you the torment of a painful Day.”
11:27  So said the representatives of those who had disbelieved in his nation: “We don’t mark (any thing in) you except (being) a man like us; and we don’t mark (any one) follow you except those: they are the meanest amongst us having only superficial opinions, not based on thinhead of state. And we do not see in you any merit above us; in fact we regard you as liars.”
11:28  (Nuh) said: “O my nation! Have you pondered, if I am on Bayyinah from my Nourisher-Sustainer and He has bestowed on me Mercy from Him but it stood obscured from you people — shall we impose it over you people while you are, unto it, as those who develop hatred against some thing
11:29  And O my nation! I do not ask you for it [i.e., for propagating the Statements of Al-Kitab to you direct (any of your)] possessions or wealth (as a worldly benefit). (There is) not a reward for me (with any one) except upon Allah, and I am not one who drives away those who have developed Faith. Surely, they are those who shall meet their Nourisher-Sustainer. Rather I mark you people as a nation who commit ignorance
11:30  And O my nation! Who will provide me assistance against Allah if I drove them away? Will you not then give a thought
11:31  And I do not say to you that with me are the treasures of Allah, and I am not aware of the unseen or the hidden; and I do not say that I am indeed an angel, and I do not say of those whom your eyes look down upon (as an inferior people) that Allah will never bestow over them any good. Allah knows better what is in their inner selves. Definitely I, in such a situation (if I drive away those whom you feel inferior), will surely be out of the transgressors.”
11:32  They said: “O Nuh! Indeed, you have indulged in arguments with us, then you have extended (beyond expectations) our disputes: so approach us with what you have promised us if you are out of those who speak the truth.”
11:33  (Nuh) said: “Definitely it is that Allah will come to you with it if He thought proper and you are not those who can frustrate (Allah’s plans)
11:34  And my advice will not give you (any) benefit if I wished that I give you sincere advice, if Allah is (the One Who) intends that He may make you go astray. He is your Nourisher-Sustainer, and to Him you shall return
11:35  Do they say: “He has fabricated it (i.e., Al-Kitab)?” Say: “If I have fabricated it then upon me be my crimes and I am absolved of what you commit in crimes.”
11:36  And inspiration was sent to Nuh that it (i.e., the situation is): “Never will Believe any of your nation except one who has already Believed. So be not sad because of what they had been doing (in their deeds)
11:37  And construct the Ark under Our Eyes and under Our Inspiration, and address Me not on behalf of those who have transgressed; surely they stand drowned.”
11:38  And he constructs the Ark; and whenever passed by him the representatives of his nation, they ridiculed him. He said: “If you ridicule us, so definitely we will mock at you in the same way as you mock (at us)
11:39  Then very soon you will know on whom comes a torment that covers him with disgrace, and a lasting punishment overpowers him.”
11:40  Till when Our Command came, and the hidden treasure of stored water gushed forth as a fountain, We said: “Embark therein from each (kind of useful animals) both types (male and female genders), two (pairs) and your family members — except that against whom the statement (about punishment) has already been issued, and those who have accepted Faith.” And did not Believe with him except a minority
11:41  And (Nuh) said: “Embark therein. With the name of Allah is its voyage and its anchorage. Surely, my Nourisher-Sustainer is indeed Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful.
11:42  And it sails with them over the waves (high enough) like mountains, and Nuh called out to his son, and he was at an isolated place, “O my son! Embark with us and be not alongwith the disbelievers.”
11:43  (The son replied and) said: “Soon I shall seek shelter towards a mountain, it will protect me from the (waves of the) water.” (Nuh counselled his son and) said: “This Day there is no saviour against the Decree of Allah, except that (on whom) He bestowed mercy.” And the wave became a barrier in between those two, so he (i.e., the son) was amongst the drowned
11:44  And it was said: “O earth! Swallow in your water, and O sky! Withhold (your rain).” And the water was made to recede and subside and the Decree (of Allah) was implemented (and all the disbelievers perished in the deluge), and it (i.e., the Ark) anchored at judi [the word refers to a (comparatively) green and fertile land] and it was said: “Barrier (to mercy) for the nation of the transgressors!”
11:45  And Nuh called upon his Nourisher-Sustainer and said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Verily, my son is of my family, and certainly Your promise is true and You are More Just of the judges.”
11:46  (Allah) said: “O Nuh! Certainly, he is not of your own; without doubt he (is involved in) action which is not righteous. So ask Me not that for which there is not any knowledge with you. Surely, I admonish you, otherwise you will become out of those who remain in ignorance.”
11:47  (Nuh) said: “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Surely, I seek protection in You that I may (ever) ask You that for which there is no knowledge with me. And if You do not forgive me and do not have mercy on me, I would be of those who lose.'
11:48  It was said: “O Nuh! Disembark (from the Ark) in peace and tranquility from Us, and blessings on you and on the communities proceeding from that who is with you. And the communities (who deviate from Islam or rebel against Al-Kitab) soon We shall grant them pleasures and glitter (of this worldly life); afterwards, will seize them a painful torment proceeding from Us.'
11:49  This is the news of the unseen which We send as inspiration towards you. You were not, (that) you may know it, (neither) you and nor your nation before this. So show patience. Surely, the end result is in favour of the Muttaqun
11:50  And to ’Ad (the word refers to a particular Arab nation) their brother Hud (was sent as a Messenger). He said: “O my nation! Pay obedience to Allah. (There is) not for you, out of a god, other than Him. You are not, except (of) those who invent lies
11:51  O my nation! I do not ask you for this (propagation) a reward. My reward is not (with any one) except on Him Who created me. Would you then not use your intellect
11:52  And O my nation! Ask forgiveness from your Nourisher-Sustainer, then repent and turn to Him, He will direct to you the sky, raining abundantly and He will increase you in strength, in addition to the strength (already present) in you; and do not turn away as Mujrimun.”
11:53  They said: “O Hud! You have not approached us with something manifest, and we are not those who leave our gods on your statement, and we are not (becoming) Believers for your sake
11:54  We do not say, except that some of our deities have approached you with an evil touch.” (Hud) said: “I make Allah as the Witness, and I give evidence that I am free from that which you ascribe as partners (in the Dominion of Allah)
11:55  besides Him. So plot against me altogether, then allow me no respite
11:56  I have put my trust in Allah, my Nourisher-Sustainer, and your Nourisher-Sustainer. (There is) not out of a living/moving creature but He is the One Who holds in firm control her forelock. Certainly, my Nourisher-Sustainer commends the Permanent Path
11:57  So if you turn away, so without any doubt I have conveyed you (the Message) that I have been sent therewith to you. And my Nourisher-Sustainer will bring as successors a nation other than you, and you will not harm Him in the least. Surely, my Nourisher-Sustainer is All-Protector over all things.'
11:58  And as and when Our Command came, We saved Hud and those who Believed with him in mercy proceeding from Us and We rescued them from a severe torment
11:59  And these (were) ’Ad. They showed arrogance against the Ayaat of their Nourisher-Sustainer and they disobeyed His Messengers and followed the command of every oppressor deeply enemical (to the ordainments of Allah)
11:60  And they were made attached to a curse in this world as well as on the Day of Resurrection. Behold! Verily, ’Ad disbelieved in their Nourisher-Sustainer. Beware! Barrier (to mercy) for ’Ad, the nation of Hud
11:61  And to Samud (the word refers to a particular Arab nation) their brother Salih (was sent as a Messenger). He said: “O my nation! Pay obedience to Allah. (There is) not for you out of a god other than Him. He brought you forth from the earth and settled you therein; then ask forgiveness of Him, then turn to Him in repentance. Certainly, my Nourisher-Sustainer is Near (to all by His love), Responsive.”
11:62  They said: “O Salih! Indeed, you have been amongst us a symbol of hope till before this. Do you (now) forbid us that we obey what our fathers (ancestors) pay obedience to? And surely we, indeed, are in grave doubt about that which you invite us to.”
11:63  He said: “O my nation! Have you (ever) pondered, if I (stand) on a clear proof from my Nourisher-Sustainer and there has come to me from Him mercy, so who will help me against Allah if I disobeyed Him? So you increase me not (in a thing) other than going in loss
11:64  And O my nation! This she-camel from Allah is a sign to you, so keep her in liberty, she will graze on the land of Allah, and do not touch her with any hurt, lest an approaching torment will seize you.”
11:65  But they incapacitated her. So (Salih) said: “Enjoy (yourselves) in your home for three days. This is a promise (as an advance warning), without (going down in history as) a denied one.”
11:66  So as and when Our command came, We rescued Salih and those who Believed with him in Mercy proceeding from Us; and (We saved them) from the disgrace of that Day. Verily, your Nourisher-Sustainer: He is the All-Powerful, the All-Mighty
11:67  And As-Saiha seized the wrong-doers, so they saw the morning, in their homes, falling dead/motionless —
11:68  as if they never lived therein. Behold! Verily, Samud disbelieved in their Nourisher-Sustainer. Beware! Barrier (to mercy) for Samud
11:69  And surely, indeed, Our messengers came to Ibrahim with the good news. They said: Salam [Peace and tranquility (on you people)]. He answered: Salam. So he did not wait much as he came with (a piece of) a roasted calf
11:70  But as and when he noticed their hands do not move towards it, he felt mistrust in them, and developed against them (a sort of) fear. They said: “Fear not, we have been sent to the nation of Lout.”
11:71  And his wife was standing and she laughed [at the statement given by the angel-messengers (Note the remaining portion of the verse, the next Verse, and also Verse No. 51/29)]. Then We gave her good news about Ishaque, and after Ishaque, of Yaqub
11:72  (When she received the news of such a late pregnancy) she said (in extreme astonishment): “Woe unto me! Shall I deliver a child while I am barren due to age and this, my husband, is an old man? Verily! This is a very strange thing!”
11:73  (The angel-messengers) said: “Do you wonder at the Verdict of Allah? The Mercy of Allah and His Blessings be on you (O) Ahl–Al-Baiyt [‘one who confines herself to the house (of the Prophet).’] Surely He (Allah) is All-Praiseworthy, All-Glorious
11:74  So as and when the confusion and astonishment had gone away from (the mind of) Ibrahim, and the good news reached him, he began to plead with Us for the nation of Lout
11:75  Verily, Ibrahim was indeed clement, tender-hearted and oft-turning (to Allah)
11:76  O Ibrahim! Forsake this. Certainly, it (is that) the command of your Nourisher-Sustainer has surely gone forth, and certainly, they: is coming to them a torment not being that (which could be one) which has been turned back
11:77  And when Our messengers came to Lout, he felt burdened because of them and felt confused because of them in distress (lest the gay-people of the town may snatch them from him), and he said: “This is a distressful day.”
11:78  And his nation came to him: they are being rushed towards him; and since aforetime they used to commit crimes of a sinful nature. He said: “O my nation! All these (women whom you could marry are as if) my daughters, they are purer for you. So pay obedience to Allah, and disgrace me not as regards my guests. Is there not out of you a single right-minded man?”
11:79  They said: “Surely you knew, there is not for us in your ‘daughters’ any of a desire; and indeed you surely know what we desire!”
11:80  (Lout) said: “Would that there be strength in me to face you or I betake myself to a powerful support (to overpower you and drive you out)
11:81  (The angels) said: “O Lout! Verily, we are the messengers from your Nourisher-Sustainer. They shall never reach you. So move with your family-members in the (terminal) part of the night, and must not any of you stay back, except your wife. Certainly, it (i.e., the punishment is) the one which is reaching her (also) what has reached them. Surely, the appointed time for them is the morning. Is not the morning very near?”
11:82  So when Our command came We turned the elevated things of that (habitation) to submerged things of that (habitation); and We rained on that (place) stones from the fully recorded, piled up (and) —
11:83  specifically marked, and kept with your Nourisher-Sustainer; and this sort of a punishment is not very far away from the Zalimun
11:84  And to Madyan, their brother Shuaib (was sent as the Messenger). He said: “O my nation! Pay obedience to Allah. There is not for you out of a god besides Him. And do not make less the measure and the weight; surely I see you in prosperity, and verily I fear over you a torment of a Day which overwhelms (the wrong-doers)
11:85  And O my nation! Make fully and correctly the measure and the weight based on justice and reduce not the things that are due to the people and do not roam on the land as mischief-mongers
11:86  That which is left by Allah (for you, in a lawful and desirable way of dealings) is better for you, if you are Believers. And I am not set over you as a guardian.”
11:87  They said: “O Shuaib! Does your Salat command you that we leave off what our fathers obey or that we may (not) do with our possessions what we desire? Verily, (only) you: surely, you are the clement and right-minded!”
11:88  He said: “O my nation! Have you pondered if I am on Bayyinah) from my Nourisher-Sustainer and He has provided me sustenance from Himself — a palatable and lawful provision — (shall I corrupt it by mixing it with illegally and immorally earned money)? And I do not intend that I may go against you, to that which I forbid you there unto. I do not intend except reform whatever I had the capacity. And there is no capacity (or ability) in me except through Allah. In Him I put my trust and unto Him I turn (for help and guidance)
11:89  And O my nation! My opposition may not lead you to commit (further) crimes (and the result be) that may reach you (a torment) similar to that what reached the nation of Nuh, or the nation of Hud, or the nation of Salih. And the nation of Lout is not far off from you (in history)
11:90  And ask forgiveness of your Nourisher-Sustainer, then turn unto Him in repentance. Surely, my Nourisher-Sustainer is continuously Merciful, Most Loving.”
11:91  They said: “O Shuaib! We do not understand a major portion of what you say and surely, we: indeed, we see you among us a weak person (who is neither rich nor well protected), and if there is no family with you, surely, we would have expelled you and you are not very powerful against us.'
11:92  He said: “O my nation! Is my family more honourable with you than Allah? And you have kept Him behind you, to the back. Verily, my Nourisher-Sustainer is All-Comprehending and All-Surveilant over what you do
11:93  And O my people! Act at your position (in accordance with your wish and capacity); surely, I am (also) one who is in action. Soon you come to know that one, on whom comes the torment which will disgrace him, and that one: he is a liar. And wait; surely, I am one who waits alongwith you.”
11:94  And when Our command wentforth We rescued Shuaib and those who Believed alongwith him in Mercy proceeding from Us and As-Saiha seized those who had transgressed, so they faced the morning in their homes falling dead/motionless —
11:95  as if they never lived therein. Behold! (There is) barrier (to mercy) for Madyan in the same way as became barred (from mercy, the nation, called) Samud
11:96  And indeed We sent Musa with Ayaatina (‘Our Signs.’) and Sultanum Mobin
11:97  to Firaun and his representatives, so they followed the command of Firaun, and the command of Firaun was not just
11:98  He will move ahead of his nation on the Day of Resurrection, so he made them enter the Fire. And evil is the entry of the one who is made to enter
11:99  And they were made attached in this (worldly life) to a curse, and (also on) the Day of Resurrection. Evil is the gift of that who is gifted (with curse)
11:100  These are some of the news about the habitations which We relate unto you. Some of them are standing (in ruins) and (some) have been mown down like the harvest
11:101  And We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves, so became of no benefit to them their deities whom they invoke besides Allah, in any way — when came the command of your Nourisher-Sustainer. And they increased them not except in destruction
11:102  And such is the Seizure by your Nourisher-Sustainer when He caught the habitations while these are involved in transgression. Surely His Seizure is painful as well as severe
11:103  Indeed, in this is a sure lesson for that who felt afraid about the punishment in the Hereafter. This is the Day the mankind shall stand gathered for its sake and this is the Day brought as evidence
11:104  And We do not delay it except till an appointed term
11:105  The day it comes, no Nafs shall talk except under His permission. So out of them is one who is extremely disturbed and one who is happily satisfied
11:106  As for those who felt extremely disturbed, so (they will be) in the Fire. For them, therein (will be) sighing and sobbing —
11:107  dwellers therein — so long as the heavens and the earth continued except what your Nourisher-Sustainer thought proper. Verily your Nourisher-Sustainer is the Sure-Accomplisher of what He intends
11:108  And as for those who were regarded happily satisfied, so (they will be) in Paradise, abiders therein — so long as the heavens and the earth continued, except what your Nourisher-Sustainer thought proper, a gift— not diminished
11:109  So be not in doubt about (the ineffectiveness of) what these (misguided people) pay obedience to. They do not pay allegiance except as pay allegiance their fathers (and ancestors) since before. And verily, We: surely, (are) those who pay fully to them their portion — not made reduced
11:110  And indeed, We delivered to Musa Al-Kitab, then difference of opinion was created in it. And if a statement was not already issued from your Nourisher-Sustainer, the decision would have been pronounced amongst them. And indeed, they are surely in grave doubt concerning it
11:111  And verily, to all (of them), when surely, repays in full, Your Nourisher-Sustainer, their works: definitely He is All-Aware of what they do
11:112  So be steadfast as you are commanded and (also) that one who has taken a turn (to Islam) with you and transgress not. Certainly, He is All-Seer of what you do
11:113  And incline not towards those who have transgressed, otherwise the Fire shall touch you, and (there is) not for you, out of ‘besides Allah’ from protectors. So then you will not be provided help
11:114  And establish Salat at the two ends of the day [the day-break (Fajr-Prayer), and the Zenith of the day (Zuhr-Prayer)] and the earliest portion of the night [just after sunset (Maghrib-Prayer)]. Surely, the good deeds neutralise the evil deeds. This is Zikrah for those who remind
11:115  And be patient; then, verily, Allah does not allow to go in vain the reward of those who do good in perfection
11:116  Then why not there became out of the generations before you (who were) custodians of Baqiyyatin, (as those who were) prohibiting against Al-Fasad in the land? The majority did not do it except a very few out of those whom We saved from amongst them. And the wrong doers remained attached (to) whatever fun and enjoyment they were provided in this (worldly life); and they remained Mujrimun
11:117  And your Nourisher-Sustainer was not (such) that He may destroy the habitations in (a rage of) injustice while their citizens may be such that they counsel people towards reform
11:118  And if your Nourisher-Sustainer had willed He could have surely made mankind one homogenous community (under compulsion. But He Himself granted them the liberty of choice). And they will not cease of being those who remain in disagreement and under disputes —
11:119  except that one upon whom your Nourisher-Sustainer has bestowed mercy, and for this He has created them. And the word of your Nourisher-Sustainer got fulfilled: “Surely, I shall fill Hell with jinns and mankind all-together.”
11:120  And all that we relate to you of the news of the Messengers is that (through which) we make strong and firm your heart thereby; and has come to you in this (Al-Kitab) the truth and admonition and a reminder for the Believers
11:121  And say to those who do not Believe: “Act at your position (in accordance with your whims and desires). Surely we are acting (according to our standards)
11:122  And you wait, surely we are those who wait.”
11:123  And to Allah belongs what is hidden or unseen in the heavens and the earth; and to Him is made to return (every) affair — the total of it. So pay obedience to Him and put the trust in Him. And your Nourisher-Sustainer is not unaware of what you people do
