'Alif 'A', Lam 'L', Ra 'R'.(This is)a Book whose verses are set firmly, then explained in detail, from One All- Wise, All- Aware.
(It teaches)that you should worship none but Allah. Verily, I am for you from Him, a warner and a bearer of glad tidings.
And that you seek the forgiveness of Allah and turn unto Him in repentance so that He may provide you with a goodly provision to an appointed term, and bestow His abounding grace on everyone endowed with grace. But if you turn away(from serving Him), then I fear for you the Penalty of a Great Day.
To Allah is your return and He is All- Powerful over everything.
Behold! They fold up their breasts to hide them from him(the Prophet)! Behold! Even when they cover themselves with their garments, He knows what they conceal and what they reveal: Verily He is aware of what is in the hearts.
And there is no moving creature on the earth but its sustenance is on Allah, and He knows its resting place and its depository. All is(recorded)in a clear Book.
And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth within Six Days(periods), and His Throne was over the water so that He might try you, which of you is best in conduct. And, if you were to say to them: 'Verily you shall be raised up after death', the unbelievers would surely say: 'This is(not)but a manifest sorcery'.
And if We postpone the penalty from them until a limited period of time, they will surely say: 'What prevents it ' Beware! On the day it will come to them it shall not be turned aside from them, and they will be encompassed by that which they used to mock at.
If We make man taste mercy from Ourselves,(and)then take it off from him, verily he is despairing ungrateful.
And if We make him taste(Our)favors after adversity has afflicted him, he will say, 'The evils have departed from me'. Verily he is joyous, boastful.
Except those who are patient and constant, and do deeds of righteousness; for them is forgiveness and a great reward.
So perhaps you may(be inclined)to give up a part of what is revealed unto thee, and your breast becomes straitened by it lest they say, 'Why has not a treasure been sent down unto him or an angel not come with him ' Verily you are only a warner, and Allah is custodian over everything.
Or do they say: 'He has forged it' Say, 'Bring you then ten suras forged, like unto it, and call(to your aid)whomsoever you can, other than Allah, if you are truthful!
If then they do not answer your(call), know that it is sent down by the knowledge of Allah, and that there is no Allah but He! Will you then submit(to Islam
Whoever desires the life of this world and its adornment, We shall pay them in full(the recompense for)their deeds therein, and they will not be defrauded therein.
(But)these are they for whom there is naught in the hereafter but the Fire: and what they have wrought in it shall fail, and vain shall be what they were doing.
Is he then(like unto him)who has a clear proof from his Lord and follows him a witness from Him, and before it(is)the Book of Moses, a guide and a mercy(testifying it)These believe in it; but whoever of the(different)parties disbelieves in it, the(Hell)Fire is the promised place; so be you not in doubt of it; verily it(the Qur'an)is the truth from your Lord, but most of the people do not believe.
And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah?(On the Day of Resurrection)these will be presented before their Lord and the witnesses( the prophets and angels)will say: 'These are those who lied against their Lord! ' Beware! the curse of Allah is on the unjust.
Those who hinder(people)from the path of Allah and seek to make it crooked, and they are themselves unbelievers as to the hereafter.
They will in no wise frustrate(His design)on the earth, nor shall there be for them any protectors besides Allah! The penalty will be doubled for them. They could not bear to hear(the truth), and they used not to see(it).
These are they who have lost their own selves, and that which they used to invent has failed them.
Assuredly, they will be the greatest losers in the Hereafter.
Verily those who believe and work righteousness, and humble themselves before their Lord, they will be Companions of the Garden,(paradise), they will abide therein for ever.
The similitude the two parties is like the blind and the deaf, and the seeing(ones)and the hearing(ones). Are they equal in likeness ?Will you not then admonish
And verily, We sent Noah to his people,(saying:)'I am a plain warner for you'.
That you serve none but Allah; verily, I do fear for you the penalty of a painful day.
Then the chiefs of those who disbelieved among his people said: 'We do not see(in)you but a man like ourselves, nor do we see that any follow you but those who are the meanest among us, at first thought, nor do we see(in)you any excellence over us; nay, we think you are liars!
He said: O my People! Bethink you, if I be upon a clear proof from my Lord, and He has grant me mercy from His Presence, but has been obscured for you; shall we compel you to(accept)it while you are averse to it
And O' my People! I ask you no wealth for it. My reward is only upon Allah, and I will not drive away those who believe,(for)verily they shall meet their Lord, but I see you are an ignorant people.
And O my people! Who will help me against Allah if I drove them away Will you not then reflect
And I do not say to you(that)Allah's treasures are with me; nor do I know the Unseen, nor do I claim to be an angel; nor do I say, about those whom your eyes do despise,(that)Allah will never grant them any good. Allah is well aware of what is in their hearts;(for)verily then I should be of the unjust.
They said: 'O' Noah! You have disputed with us and multiplied disputation with us. Bring us then what you have promised us(of divine punishment), if you are truthful.
He said: 'Verily Allah will bring it to you, if He wills, and you will not be able to frustrate(it).
And my advice will not profit you, should I intend to give you advice, if Allah wills to lead you astray. He is your Lord and unto Him you will be returned.
Or they say: 'He has forged it. ' Say: 'If I have forged it, upon me is my sin, and I am quit of the sins you commit'.
And it was revealed unto Noah: 'None of your people will believe except those who have already believed, so do not grieve as to what they used to do'.
And make you the Ark under Our eyes, and as We reveal; and address Me not about those who are unjust; verily they shall be drowned.
And he began making the Ark; and whenever the chiefs of his people passed by him they scoffed at him. He said:'If you scoff at us, we(too)shall surely scoff at you, as you scoff '
So you shall know soon to whom a Penalty(that)will confound him comes, and upon whom there shall fall a lasting Penalty.
(Thus it was)till, when Our Command came, and the oven gushed forth( water)! We said: Embark therein, of each kind a pair, and your family(apart from your wife and a son)except for those him against whom the Word has already passed and whoever believed. But there believed not with him but a few.
And he(Noah)said: 'Embark in it! In Allah's Name shall be its sailing and its berthing. Verily my Lord is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
So, it sailed with them amid waves like mountains. And Noah called out to his son and he was aloof: 'O my son! Embark with us and be not with the unbelievers.
He said: 'I will take refuge in a mountain; it will save me from the water. ' Said he(Noah): 'Today, there is no protector from Allah's decree but( of whom)He has mercy. ' And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned.
And it was said: 'O earth! Swallow down your water, and O sky! Withhold(your rain)! ' And the water abated, and the matter was ended, and it(the Ark)rested on the(Mount)Judi, and it was said: 'Away with the unjust people!
And Noah called unto his Lord, and said: O my Lord! Verily, my son is of my family, and certainly Your promise is true and You are the Most just of Judges.
He(Allah)said: 'O' Noah! Verily he is not of your family. Verily he is(of)conduct other than righteous. So do not ask of Me that of which you have no knowledge! I admonish you, lest you should be among the ignorant.
He(Noah)said: 'O my Lord! Verily I seek refuge in You, lest I should ask You(for)that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have Mercy on me I should be of the losers'.
It was said: 'O Noah! Debark in peace from Us, and blessings upon you and on the nations of those with you; and nations whom We shall afford provision, then there shall afflict them from Us a painful chastisement'.
(O Prophet!)these are of the tidings of the Unseen which We reveal unto you. Before this, neither you nor your people knew them. Therefore, be you patient, verily the end is for the pious ones.
And unto(the people of)'Ad(We sent)their brother Hud; he said: 'O my people! Worship Allah! You have no god other than He. You are only forgers(of calumnies)'.
(Hud said)'O' my people! I ask you no reward for it. My reward is only upon Him Who created me. Have you then no sense
And O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn unto Him repentant. He will send you the sky pouring abundant rain, increasing you strength unto your strength; and do not you turn back(from the Truth)as sinners.
They said: 'O Hud! You have brought us no clear proof, and we shall not abandon our gods for your word, nor are we believers in you!
We say nothing but that some of our gods have smitten you with evil. He said: 'Verily I call Allah to witness and bear you(also)witness that I am quit of what you associate(with Allah).
Besides Him,(I am quit of everything you worship), therefore, scheme (your worst)against me, all together, and give me no respite.
Verily, I have put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord!(For)there is no moving creature but He holds it(in His control)by its forelock. Verily my Lord is on a Straight Path.
But if you turn away(from my call), I have conveyed the Message with which I was sent to you and my Lord will make another People to succeed you, and you will not harm Him in the least. Verily my Lord is Guardian over everything.
And when Our decree came, We saved Hud and those who believed with him, by a Mercy from Us and delivered them from a harsh chastisement.
And this was(the people of)'Ad; they rejected the Signs of their Lord, and disobeyed His Messengers, and followed the command of every obstinate tyrant.
And they were pursued by a curse in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection. Behold! the 'Ad disbelieved in their Lord: so away with 'Ad, the people of Hud.
And unto(the people of)Thamoud(We sent)their brother S alih, He said: 'O my people! Worship Allah! You have no god other than He. It is He Who produced you from the earth and settled you therein: so ask forgiveness of Him, and turn unto Him in repentance: surely my Lord is Nigh, Responsive'.
They said: 'O Salih! You have hitherto been a source of hope among us. Do you(now)forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped Truly we are in disquieting doubt as to that unto which you invite us'.
He(Salih)said: 'O' my people! Bethink you if I be upon a clear proof from my Lord and He hath sent Mercy unto me from Himself, who will then help me against Allah if I(were to)disobey Him So you do not add to me other than loss.
O my People! This she camel of Allah is a Sign for you. So leave her alone to graze in Allah's earth, and do not touch her with any harm, lest a swift chastisement will seize you!
So they hamstrung her. Then he said: 'Enjoy yourselves in your abode for three days, (then will be your ruin). That is a promise not to be belied.
And when Our Decree came(to pass), We saved Salih and those who believed with him by a Mercy from Us, and(delivered them)from the ignominy of that day. Verily, your Lord is the All- strong, the All- mighty.
And the(mighty)Blast overtook those who were unjust, so they became motionless corpses in their abodes.
As if they had never dwelt there. Behold! Verily Thamoud rejected their Lord. Behold! away with Thamoud!
And certainly Our messengers(the angels)came to Abraham with glad tidings. They said 'Peace! ' He answered 'Peace! ' and he did not delay to bring a roasted calf.
But when he saw their hands extended not towards it, he mistrusted them, and conceived a fear of them. They said: 'Fear not; we have been sent against the people of Lot'.
And his wife was standing(by)and she laughed when We gave her the glad tidings(of the birth)of Isaac, and after Isaac, of Jacob.
She said: 'Voe is me! Shall I bear a child when I am an old woman, and this my husband is an old man Verily this is a wonderful thing!
They said: Do you wonder at Allah's decree The grace of Allah and His blessings on you, O people of the House! Verily He is Praise worthy, Glorious.
So when fear had passed from Abraham and the glad tidings reached him, he began disputing with Us concerning the people of Lot.
Verily Abraham was indeed for bearing, tender- hearted, penitent.
O Abraham! Forsake this! Indeed the decree of your Lord has come to pass and surely there is coming(upon)them an irreversible chastisement.
And when Our messengers(the angels)came to Lot, he was grieved for them and felt straitened to protect them. He said: 'This is a distressful day'.
And his people came rushing towards him, And aforetime they had been practicing abominations. He said: 'O my people, here are my daughters they are purer for you. So fear Allah, and do no degrade me with my guests! Is there not among you one upright man
They said: 'You know we have no right to your daughters, and verily you know well what we desire'.
He said: 'Would that I had the power against you or I might take refuge in a strong support'.
They(the guests)said: 'O Lot! Verily we are messengers of your Lord! Never shall they reach you! So travel with your family in a part of the night, and let none of you look back, but your wife. Surely she shall be smitten by that which smites them. Verily their appointed time is the morning: Is not the morning nigh ?
When Our command came, We turned it(their township)upside down, and rained on it stones of baked clay, layer on layer.
Marked with your Lord, and it is not far off from the unjust ones.
And to(the people of)Madyan(We sent)their brother Shu'ayb. He said: 'O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Allah than He. And do not give short measure and weight. Verily I see you in prosperity and I fear for you the punishment of an all- encompassing Day'.
And O my people! Fill up the measure and the balance in justice, and do not diminish the people their things: and do not mischief in the land, working corruption.
(The lawful wealth)which is left by Allah is better for you, if you be believers. And I am not a guardian over you.
They said: 'O Shu'ayb! Does your prayer command you that we should leave off that our fathers worshipped, or we(should forsake to do)what we like with our property Truly you are the forbearing, the right minded'.
He said: 'O My people! Bethink you' If I be upon a clear proof from my Lord, and He has provided me with fair sustenance from Him And I desire not, in opposition to you, to do that which I forbid you from it. I desire naught save reform so far as I am able. My success is only with Allah. On Him do I rely and unto Him I turn(repentant)'.
And O My people! Let not(your)breach with me cause you to sin, lest befalls you the like of what befell the people of Noah, or the people of Hud or the people of Salih; and the people of Lot are not far off from you.
(Then come)and ask forgiveness of your Lord, and turn unto Him(in repentance): Verily my Lord is Merciful, Loving.
They said: 'O Shu'ayb! We do not understand much of what you say; and most surely we see you weak among us. Were it not for your family, we would certainly stone you; and you are not mighty against us'.
He said: 'O my people! Is then my family more esteemed with you than Allah And you cast Him behind your back, with neglect. Verily my Lord encompasses what you do'.
And O my people! Act according to your ability. I will do(my part). Soon you will know on whom comes the Penalty disgracing him, and who it is a liar. And watch you; Verily I(too)am watching with you.
And when Our Command came, We saved Shu'ayb and those who believed with him by a mercy from Us, and the(heavenly)Blast overtook those who were unjust, so they become motionless corpses in their abodes.
As if they had never dwelt there. Behold! Away with(people of) Madyan, even as were cast away(the people of)Thamoud.
And indeed We sent Moses with Our Signs and a manifest authority,
Unto Pharaoh and his chiefs; but they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh was not rightly guided.
He shall go before his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire, and evil is the place(they will be)led to.
And they are followed by a curse in this world and on the Day of Judgment, and woeful is the gift which shall be given(them).
(O' Our Apostle!)This is of the tidings of the towns(which)We relate to you; some of them are still standing and some have been mown down.
And We did no injustice unto them, but they were unjust unto themselves. When the decree of your Lord came, their gods, whom they invoked other than Allah, availed them not anything and they increased them naught but perdition.
And such is the grasp(of punishment)of your Lord when He grasps the townships that are unjust. Verily His grasp(punishment)is painful, severe.
Surely in that is a sign for him who fears the chastisement in the Hereafter, that is a Day(when)mankind are to be gathered to, and that Day witnessed(by all).
And We do not postpone it, but to an appointed term.
The day(when)it comes, no soul shall speak but by His leave. Then some of them shall be wretched, and some happy.
Then as for those who are wretched(they)shall be in the Fire, for them therein will be moaning and sighing.
They will abide therein so long as the heavens and the earth endure, except as your Lord pleases. Verily your Lord is the(Mighty)Doer of what He intends.
108 And as for those who are happy, they shall be in Paradise, abiding therein, so long as the heavens and the earth endure, except as your Lord pleases: a gift without a break.(1
So be not then in doubt as to what these(men)worship. They worship nothing but what their fathers worshipped before(them), and verily We shall pay them back(in full)their portion undiminished.
And We certainly gave Moses the Book, then variance was(created)in it, and had not a Word gone forth before from your Lord, the matter would have been decided between them: but they are in grave doubt concerning it.
And certainly, to all will your Lord recompense them their deeds in full; verily He is aware of what they do.
Therefore stand firm(O Prophet)as you are commanded, and(also)he who has turned(unto Allah)with you, and(O' men)do not transgress(from the Path ); verily He sees well what you do.
And do not incline to those who are unjust, lest the Fire will touch you; and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor shall you be helped
And establish the prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approaches of the night; verily the good deeds remove evil deeds. That is a reminder for the mindful.
And be patient(and steadfast); for verily Allah does not waste the reward of the righteous(ones).
But why were there not, among the generations before you, persons possessed understanding(and authority), prohibiting(people)from mischief in the earth, except a few whom We saved from among them And those who were unjust pursued what they were made to enjoy and they were guilty.
Nor would your Lord destroy the townships unjustly while their people acted well.
And had your Lord willed, He would have made mankind a single people: yet they cease not differing.
Except those on whom your Lord has Mercy; and for that(mercy)did He create them. And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled: 'Certainly I will fill Hell with jinn and the mankind together'.
And all that We relate to you of the account of the messengers is something in order that with it We make firm your heart and in this there has come to you the Truth, and an admonition and a reminder to the believers.
And say to those who do not believe: 'Act according to your ability; we shall do(our part)';
And wait you! We too are surely waiting.
And to Allah(alone)belong the Unseen of the heavens and the earth, and to Him the whole affairs will be returned; Then worship Him, and put(all)your trust in Him, and your Lord is not heedless of what you do.
