11:1  Alif Lam Ra. A book of which the verses have been compounded and thereafter expounded from the presence of one who is All-wise, All-acquainted
11:2  [proclaiming] that you should worship none other than Allah, for I surely am for you a warner and a bringer of glad tidings from Him.
11:3  And that you should seek forgiveness from your Lord and then turn to Him in repentance and He will grant you a goodly enjoyment up to an appointed term and give unto everyone who is worthy of favor a full measure of His favor. And if you turn away, Lo! I indeed fear on your account the punishment of an awful day.
11:4  To Allah is your place of return and it is He who has power over all things.
11:5  Lo! They indeed fold up their breasts in order to hide from Him but Lo! He knows what they keep secret and what they make public at the moment when they cover themselves with their garments for He indeed is the Knower of the essence of the bosoms.
11:6  There is no creature that moves in the earth but surely its sustenance is binding upon Allah and He knows its place and time of rest and its place and time of motion all in a clear book.
11:7  And He it is who created the heavens and the earth in six periods while His throne was on the water [before that] so as to try you to see who among you is excellent in action. And if you were to say [to them] that you indeed are going to be raised after the death surely those who disbelieve will say, “This is nothing but manifest sorcery.”
11:8  If We were to postpone the punishment from them till a term well counted, they would surely say, “What is holding it back?” Lo! On the day it will come to them it shall not be averted from them and [the thing] that which they used to deride will befall them.
11:9  And if We give man a taste of mercy from Us and then We withdraw it from him he indeed turns despairing, thankless.
11:10  But if We give him a taste of blessings after adversity touched him, he is sure to say, “All the woes have gone from me” and there he indeed becomes over joyous, boastful.
11:11  Excepted are those who exercise patience and act righteous deeds. They are the ones for whom there will be forgiveness and a great reward.
11:12  Could it come to pass that you are going to abandon some of what has been revealed unto you and your breast is going to be constrained lest they say, “Why has a treasure not been sent down on him or an angel come with him?” [No] you are but a warner and Allah is trustee over all things.
11:13  Or they say that he has contrived it say, “Bring then ten surahs [chapters] contrived like it and call whomever you can besides Allah [to help you] if you are sincere [in your claim].
11:14  If they have not responded to your call then know that [this revelation] has been sent down by the knowledge of Allah and that there is no deity except He. Are you then going to be those who have submitted?
11:15  Whoever wants the life of this world and its ornament, We will pay them [the reward of] their deeds in full therein and therein they will not be cheated in aught.
11:16  They are the ones for whom there is nothing in the life of the hereafter except the fire and all they had wrought came to naught therein and in vain was all that they used to do.
11:17  As for one who was on a clear proof from his Lord and a witness from Him follows him and before him was the book of Moses, a guide and a mercy. They do believe in it and whosoever disbelieves in it from among the factions, then the fire indeed is his place of appointment. Therefore do not be in confusion about it for surely it is the truth from your Lord however most people do not believe.
11:18  Who does more wrong to his own soul than someone who contrives a lie against Allah. These are the one who will be brought in front of their Lord and the witnesses will say, “These are those who have lied against their Lord” Lo! The curse of Allah is on those who wrong their own souls.
11:19  They who hinder (people) from the way of Allah and seek to make it crooked while it is they who are disbelievers in the life of the hereafter.
11:20  Those will never go beyond the reach [of Allah] in the earth and there will be no allies for them besides Allah. The punishment will be doubled for them. They never had the ability to hear nor did they use to see.
11:21  They are the ones who have squandered their lives and what they used to contrive is gone amiss from them.
11:22  For no doubt these indeed will be the greatest losers in the life of the hereafter.
11:23  Indeed those who believe and do righteous deeds and humble themselves for their Lord, it is they who will be companions of the garden to dwell therein forever.
11:24  The likeness of the two groups is like the blind and the deaf and the seeing and the hearing. Are the two equal in likeness? Will you not then remember?
11:25  And indeed we sent Noah to his people. [He said] I indeed am a manifest warner for you.
11:26  [I warn you] that you should not worship anyone except Allah. Truly I fear on your account, the punishment of a day full of pain.
11:27  The chieftains who disbelieved among his people said, “We do not see you except to be a human like us and we do not see you being followed except by those simpletons among us naïve in views and we do not see you having any advantage over us. Rather we think that you are liars.”
11:28  He said, “O my people do you see that if I were on a clear proof from my Lord and He granted me mercy from His presence, yet it was made obscure from you, should we compel you to accept it even though you are averse to it?”
11:29  O my people I ask you no money for it. My reward is but on Allah. I am not going to chase away those who have believed. They surely are going to meet their Lord but I see you to be a people who are ignorant.
11:30  O my people who will help me from Allah if I were to chase them away. Will you then not remember?
11:31  And I tell you not that Allah’s treasures are with me nor that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel, nor do I tell those that you look upon with disdain that Allah will never grant them good. Allah alone knows what is within their soul. I then indeed will be among those who wrong their own souls.
11:32  They said O Noah. You’ve argued with us and you have persevered in your argument with us. Then bring unto us what you promise us if you indeed are among those who are sincere [in their promise].
11:33  He said only Allah can bring it to you if He wills and you will in no way be out of reach.
11:34  And my good counsel will not benefit you even if I will to give you good counsel if Allah wills to take you astray. It is He who is your Lord and unto Him you will be returned.
11:35  Or say they that he contrived it. Say, “If I did contrive it, my evil-doing is upon me and I am guiltless from all evil that you perpetrate.”
11:36  And it was revealed unto Noah that none else is going to believe from among your people except the ones who have already believed. Therefore do not be dismayed because of what they used to do.
11:37  So build the ark under Our supervision and under Our inspiration and do not address Me on the matter of those who have wronged their own souls for surely they are going to drown.
11:38  As he built the ark and each time a group from his people passed by him, they mocked at him. He said if you mock at us, we too will mock at you as you mock.
11:39  But soon you will know on whom will come a punishment that will cover him with humiliation and on whom will come down a lasting punishment.
11:40  Thus it was until Our commandment came and the fountains [of the earth] gushed forth [with water] then we said [to Noah] “Take on board of everything a pair of male and female as well as your family, except those for whom a judgment has been pronounced, and [take on board] those who have believed.” And none believed with him except a few.
11:41  And he said, “Embark therein, by the name of Allah is its sailing and [by the name of Allah] is its coming to port. Indeed my Lord is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
11:42  And it sailed on with them amidst waves (towering) like mountains and Noah called out to his son who had kept himself aloof, “O my son! embark with us and be not with those who are the disbelievers.”
11:43  He [the son] said, “I will seek refuge in a mountain that will protect me from the water.” He [Noah] said, “None can protect today from the commandment of Allah except the one whom He has graced with mercy” and the wave interposed between them and he was among the drowned.
11:44  It was said, “O earth! Swallow up your water and O heaven! Hold up [your water]” and the water was made to subside and the commandment was decreed and it [the ark] came to rest on the Judi and it was said, “Away with the people who wrong their own souls.”
11:45  And Noah called unto his Lord and said, “O Lord! My son was indeed of my family and truly your promise is the truth and you are the wisest of the dispensers.”
11:46  He [Allah] said, “O Noah he was not of your family and truly what he did was not a righteous deed therefore ask me not about something of which you have no knowledge. Lo! I admonish you lest you be of those who do not know their boundary.”
11:47  He said, “O my Lord! I seek refuge with you that I ask you something of which I have no knowledge and unless You forgive me and You grant me mercy, I will be of the ones in loss.”
11:48  Thereupon it was proclaimed, “O Noah! Disembark with peace from Us and with blessings upon you and upon generations from those who are with you. And there are other generations whom We will grant a temporary enjoyment of this world and then a painful punishment from Us will touch them.”
11:49  That is part of the tidings of the unseen which We reveal unto you, you didn’t know it nor did your people [know it] before this, therefore be patient. For the ending belongs to those who revere Allah.
11:50  And to the people of ‘Ad [we sent] their brother Hud. He said, “O my people worship Allah for you have no other deity except He. As is you are only contriving.
11:51  O my people! I ask you no recompense for it for my recompense is binding only on the one who originated my creation. Will you not then understand?”
11:52  And, “O my people seek forgiveness from your Lord and then turn to Him in repentance then He will send [His blessings] on you pouring down from the heavens and He will increase you in strength upon your strength so do not turn your back as evildoers.
11:53  They said, “O Hud, you have brought us no clear sign and we are not going to forsake our deities on the strength of your word and therefore we are not going to believe in you.”
11:54  All we can say is that perhaps some of our gods have stricken you. He said indeed I call Allah to witness and you also witness that I am a disclaimer of all that you ascribe as partners to Allah
11:55  except Him let all of you together plot against me and then give me no respite.
11:56  I indeed have put my trust in Allah my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature but He it is who holds it by its forelock. Lo! My Lord is on a path most upright.
11:57  But if they turn away [say] “I have indeed conveyed unto you that which I was sent with to you. And in time my Lord will cause other people to be vicegerents instead of you and you will not harm Him in the least. Lo! My Lord indeed keeps guard over everything.
11:58  And when our judgment came to pass, we took Hud and those who believed with him to salvation through a mercy from Us and it was from a tough punishment that We saved them.
11:59  Such was the case of ‘Ad who denied the signs of their Lord and disobeyed His messengers and followed the command of everyone who is peremptory and wayward.
11:60  And they were caused to be pursued by a curse in the life of this world and on the day of resurrection. Lo! The people of ‘Ad disbelieved in their Lord. Lo! Away with ‘Ad the people of Hud.
11:61  And to the [people of] Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, “O my people worship Allah you have no other deity except Him. It is He who created you out of the earth and He caused you to populate it therefore seek forgiveness from Him and then turn to Him in repentance Lo! My Lord is indeed All-near, Oft-Responsive.”
11:62  They said, “O Salih you used to be a source of hope among us before this. Are you now forbidding us from worshipping that which our forefathers [used to] worship. Lo! We indeed are in doubtful incredulity about that which you are calling us to.”
11:63  He said, “O my people do you see if I were on a clear sign from my Lord and He granted me mercy from Himself, who then can help me against Allah if I disobeyed Him? Therefore all you will do is to increase me in loss.”
11:64  And [he said] “O my people this She-camel of Allah is for you as a sign. Therefore leave her to feed in the earth of Allah and do not touch her with harm otherwise an immediate punishment will seize you.”
11:65  But they hamstrung [and killed] her so he [Salih] said, “Enjoy in your homes for three days [only] That is a promise not to be proven a lie.”
11:66  So when Our commandment came to pass We took Salih and those who believed with him to salvation through a mercy from Us [and we saved them also] from the disgrace of that day. Lo! Your Lord is He who is The All-strong, The All-mighty.
11:67  And the mighty shriek seized those who used to wrong their own souls so they lay lifeless by morning in their homes.
11:68  As though they had never dwelled therein. Lo! Thamud indeed disbelieved in their Lord. Lo! Away with Thamud.
11:69  And indeed Our messengers came to Abraham with glad tidings. They said, “Peace.” He said, “Peace.” Without delay he brought [unto them] a roasted calf.
11:70  But when he saw their hands did not reach out towards it, he deemed them strange and he conceived fear from them. They said, ”Don’t be afraid. Lo! We have been sent to the people of Lot.”
11:71  And his wife stood by so she laughed. We therefore gave her glad tidings of Isaac and after Isaac of Jacob.
11:72  She said wow me! Shall I bear a child when I am an old woman and this my husband an old man. This indeed would be a thing most wonderful.
11:73  They said, “Do you wonder at the commandment of Allah? The mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, O people of the house. He indeed is All-praiseworthy, All-Glorious.
11:74  When the fright had departed from Abraham and the glad tidings came to him, he began to plead with Us on behalf of the people of Lot.
11:75  Lo! Abraham was indeed magnanimous, oft-imploring and oft-returning to God.
11:76  [They said] O Abraham. Turn away from this. Truly your Lord’s commandment has already been passed and truly a punishment is coming to them that cannot be turned back.
11:77  And when our messengers came to Lot, he felt grief and constriction on their account in his heart and he said, “This is a difficult day.”
11:78  And his people came to him hastening towards him and before then they used to commit abominations. He said, “O my people, these daughters of mine, they are purer for you. Safeguard yourself in reverence to Allah and do not disgrace me in the matter of my guests. Is there not among you one man who is guided [to the right way]?
11:79  They said, “You know well that there is no part for us in your daughters and well you know what we want.”
11:80  He said, “If only I had the strength to overpower you or if I could betake myself to a mighty stronghold.”
11:81  They said, “O Lot, we are your Lord’s messengers [so] they will never reach at you. Therefore set out with your family in a portion of the night and let no one among you look back except your wife. Lo! What will befall them is going to befall her. Their appointed time is the daybreak. Is the daybreak not near?”
11:82  So when Our commandment came, We turned [the city] upside down and We rained upon it stones made of baked clay all set in full array.
11:83  Marked out from your Lord’s presence and it is not far from those who wrong their own souls.
11:84  And to Madian We sent their brother Shoaib. He said, “O my people worship Allah. For you there is no deity except He. And cheat not in the measurement and the weight. I indeed see that you are well off and I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing day.”
11:85  and O my people! Give full measure and full weight in all equity and do not rob people of their property and do not go about in the earth spreading corruption.
11:86  The good things that remain with Allah are better for you if you were believers however I am not appointed a guardian over you.
11:87  They said, “O Shoaib is it your prayer that commands you that we should forsake that which our forefathers worshipped or that we may not do with our property what we like. You indeed [pretend to be] the only magnanimous, the only one guided [to the right way].”
11:88  He said, “O my people! Suppose I were on a clear sign from my Lord and He provided me from Himself an excellent provision [and you denied it]. For it is not my desire to merely disagree with you in regards to that from which I prohibit you. All I want is to set things right to the best of my ability. And my concordance only comes from Allah. In Him only I put my trust and only unto Him I turn back.”
11:89  O my people! Do not let your desire to dissent from me sway you to evil doing lest befalls you a like of what befell on the people of Noah or the people of Hud or the people of Salih and the people of Lot are not far from you.
11:90  And seek forgiveness from your Lord and then turn to Him in repentance. Truly my Lord is All-merciful, All-affectionate.
11:91  They said, “O Shoaib! We do not discern much of what you say. And we surely see that you are a weak one among us. If it was not for your clan we would have certainly stoned you and after all you do not hold a position of significance among us.”
11:92  He said, “O my people! Is my family of more significance to you than Allah and you have placed Him behind your back neglected. But Lo! My Lord is All-encompassing of what you do.”
11:93  He said, “O my people! Act from your position to the best of your ability I too am acting [the same]. In the time to come you will know upon whom there comes a punishment that will humiliate him and who is a liar. Watch out I too with you am watching.”
11:94  And when Our commandment came to pass, We took Shoaib and those who believed with him to salvation through a mercy from Us and the mighty shriek seized those who wronged their own souls and by morning they laid lifeless in their homes.
11:95  As though they never dwelt therein. Lo! Away with Madian as Thamud were done away with.
11:96  And indeed We sent Moses with Our signs and with a manifest authority.
11:97  Unto Pharaoh and his chieftains but they followed the command of Pharaoh and Pharaoh’s command was not rightly guided.
11:98  He will lead his people on the day of resurrection and bring them as flocks to the fire but Alas what a woeful place to seek for water.
11:99  They are pursued in this [life] by a curse and also on the day of resurrection. Alas! How woeful a disbursement are they disbursed with.
11:100  And that is part of the news of the townships which We related unto you. Of them some are still standing and some have been mowed down.
11:101  And We did not wrong them but they wronged their own souls and their deities whom they used to call instead of Allah were of no avail to them in aught when your Lord’s commandment came to pass and they did not increase them in anything but destruction.
11:102  Such is the seizing of your Lord when He seizes the townships as they wrong their own souls. Lo! His seizing is painful, severe.
11:103  In that there is surely a sign for anyone who fears the punishment of the hereafter. That is a day on which the mankind is going to be assembled for Him and that day is going to be witnessed.
11:104  And We only defer it till a term which is reckoned.
11:105  The day it comes, no soul shall speak except by His leave. Some among them will be wretched and some happy.
11:106  As for those who are wretched, they will be in the fire. There is nothing for them therein except sighing and sobbing
11:107  to abide therein forever as long as the heavens and the earth last except aught what your Lord wills. For your Lord is irresistible doer of what He wills.
11:108  As for those who are good-fortuned, they will be in the garden to abide therein forever as long as the heavens and the earth last except aught that your Lord wills that is a gift that is not going to be cut short.
11:109  Therefore be not in confusion as to what these [people] worship. They only worship as their forefathers worshipped before them. And truly We are going to give them their portion in full without any diminution.
11:110  And We indeed gave the book to Moses but disagreements arose about it. Had it not been for a sentence that was passed from your Lord, the matter would have been decreed between them. And truly they were in doubtful incredulity about it.
11:111  And there is none amongst them but that your Lord shall certainly recompense them for their deeds in full. For He indeed is All acquainted of all that they do.
11:112  Thus be as upright as you have been commanded, you and those who have turned with you [to Allah] in repentance and do not transgress. For He truly is a Seer of all that you do.
11:113  And do not lean towards those who have wronged their own souls lest the fire touches you and you have no other allies besides Allah and then you will not be helped.
11:114  And establish the prayer at the two ends of the day and the extremities of the night. Lo! The good deeds expunge the bad deeds. That is a reminder for those who are open to remembrance.
11:115  And be patient. For truly Allah does not allow the rewards of those who act in excellence to go to waste.
11:116  Had it not been for righteous remnants from the generations before you who engaged in prohibiting from corruption in the land, except a few from whom We had saved among them. For those who wronged their souls went on the pursuit of the pleasures wherein they were indulged and so they were indeed evildoers.
11:117  It is not for your Lord to destroy a township on the mere account of the wrongdoing [shirk] as long as its people practice righteousness [among themselves].
11:118  Had your Lord so willed, He would indeed have made mankind one nation but however they continue to disagree.
11:119  Except those on whom your Lord has bestowed mercy. For that end He created them [to disagree] and your Lord’s sentence has been fulfilled that I indeed will fill hell with the Jinns and the Human beings altogether.
11:120  And We relate unto you from the news of the messengers all that wherewith We strengthen your heart and in this [the book] has come to you the truth and an admonition and a remembrance for the believers.
11:121  And say unto those who do not believe, “Work hard from your position and we also are working.”
11:122  And wait, we also are waiting.
11:123  For Allah belongs the [knowledge of the] unknown in the heavens and in the earth and to Him is returned the affair all of it. Therefore worship Him and put your trust in Him and your Lord is not unmindful of what you do.
