14:1  Alif, 'A' Lam, 'L' Ra, 'R'. (This is) a Book which We have sent down to you so that, by their Lord's permission, you lead out the people from the darkness (of ignorance) into the light (of faith) , into the way of the Mighty, the Praised (One) .
14:2  Allah, unto Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and woe to the unbelievers for severe chastisement.
14:3  Those who prefer the life of the world to the Hereafter, and hinder (others) from the path of Allah, and seek to make it crooked. They are in far error.
14:4  And We never sent a messenger except with the language of his people, so that he might explain (Our Message) to them clearly; then Allah leads astray whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
14:5  And indeed We sent Moses with Our Signs (saying) : 'Bring forth your people from the darkness into the light and remind them of the days of Allah. Verily there are signs in this for every patient, grateful (one) '.
14:6  And (remember) when Moses said to his people: 'Remember Allah's favour to you when He delivered you from Pharaoh's people. They afflicted you with evil chastisement, slaughtering your sons, and sparing your women; and in this was a great trial from your Lord.
14:7  And (remember) when your Lord declared: 'If you be thankful I will certainly increase you (your blessings) and if you be ungrateful, verily My chastisement is indeed severe'.
14:8  And Moses said: 'If you be ungrateful, you and whoso is on the earth, all together, verily Allah is Self- Sufficient, Praiseworth
14:9  Has not the account of those before you reach you of the people of Noah, and 'Ad, and Thamoud and those who (came) after them None knows them but Allah. Their messengers came to them with clear signs (miracles) while they thrust their hands into their mouths, and they said: 'Verily we disbelieve in (that )which you have been sent with, and verily we are in doubt about that unto which you invite us'.
14:10  Their messenger said: 'Is there any doubts about Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth ' He calls you to forgive for you of your sins and respite you till an appointed term. They said: 'You are nothing but mortals like us; you intend that you turn us away from what our ancestors used to worship. Then bring us some clear authority'.
14:11  Their messengers said (answering) them: 'We are nothing but mortals like you, but Allah bestows (His) favour on whomever He pleases of His servants; and it is not for us that we bring unto you any authority except by Allah's permission. And on Allah should the believers rely.
14:12  And why should we not rely on Allah while He has guided us to our ways (of happiness) And certainly we will bear patiently whatever hurt you inflict on us; and on Allah (alone) should the reliant rely.
14:13  And those who disbelieved told their messengers: 'We will certainly expel you from our land, or else you return to our creed. ' Then their Lord revealed to them: 'Certainly We will perish the unjust'.
14:14  And, certainly, We shall settle you in the land after them. This is for him who fears My Majesty and fears My threat.
14:15  And they (the prophets as well as the believers) sought victory, but every obstinate oppressor remained deprived
14:16  Hell is before him, and he will be given to drink of festering fluid.
14:17  He will drink it little by little which he can hardly swallow agreeably, and death will come to him from every side, while he will not be about to die, and there will be a vehement chastisement before him.
14:18  The parable of those who disbelieve in their Lord, their deeds are like ashes on which the wind blows severely on a stormy day; they will have no power over any thing out of what they have earned; that is the very straying, far (and deep) .
14:19  Did you not see that Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth If He wills He will take you away and bring (in your place) a new creation.
14:20  And this is not difficult for Allah.
14:21  And they shall come forth in front of Allah all together. Then the week shall say to those who were the arrogant: 'Verily we were your followers (in the world) . Can you avert from us any part of the chastisement of Allah They would say: 'If Allah had guided us we too would have definitely guided you. It is all the same to us whether we cry or we are patient; there is no way for us to escape.
14:22  And Satan says, when the affair is decided: 'Verily Allah promised you the promise of truth; I also promised you but I failed to keep them to you, and I did not have any authority over you except that I called you and you responded me. Therefore, do not blame me, but blame yourselves. I cannot help you, nor can you help me. Verily I disbelieved in your associating me with Allah from before. Verily the unjust, for them shall be a painful chastisement'.
14:23  And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to Gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein shall they abide for ever by their Lord's permission; their greetings therein is: 'Peace! '.
14:24  Have you not seen how Allah sets forth a parable A good word is like a good tree, the roots of which are fixed and its branches are in heaven,
14:25  (The good tree) yields its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord, and Allah sets forth parables for the people that they may reflect.
14:26  And the parable of an evil word is like an evil tree rooted upon the surface of the earth; it has naught of stability.
14:27  Allah confirms those who believe by a firm saying in the life of the world and in the Hereafter, and Allah leaves the unjust to stray; and Allah does what He pleases.
14:28  Have you not seen those who changed Allah's favour for ingratitude, and caused their people to alight into the abode of perdition
14:29  Hell! They shall enter into it; and (what) a bad place it is!
14:30  And they set up (idols as) equals to Allah that they might mislead (the people) from His path. Say: 'Enjoy yourselves, for verily your journey's end will be the Fire'.
14:31  O' Prophet! Say to My servants who have believed, to perform the prayers and to spend (in charity) out of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day in which there shall be neither bartering nor befriending.
14:32  Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth, and sent down water from the sky; then brought forth fruits with it to be sustenance for you; and He has made the ships subservient to you that they might run through the sea by His command; and He has made the rivers subservient to you.
14:33  And He has made the constantly moving sun and the moon subservient to you, and He has made the night and the day subservient to you.
14:34  And He has given you whatever you have asked Him; and if you count Allah's blessings, you are unable to number them. Verily, man is very unjust, very ungrateful.
14:35  And (remember) when Abraham said: 'My Lord, make this city secure and distance me and my children from worshipping the idols'.
14:36  My Lord, verily, they (idols) have misled many of the people. Then, whoever follows me, he is definitely of me, and whoever disobeys me; then verily you are Forgiving, Merciful.
14:37  Our Lord! Verily I have settled (a part) of my offspring in a valley without cultivation near Your Sacred House, in order, Our Lord! that they may establish prayer; therefore, make the hearts of some people yearn towards them, and provide them with fruits so that they may be grateful.
14:38  Our Lord! Verily, You know whatever we hide and whatever we manifest, and nothing in the earth nor anything in the heaven is hidden from Allah.
14:39  Praise be to Allah, Who has granted me in old age Ishmael and Isaac. Verily my Lord is the Hearer of the petition;
14:40  My Lord! Make me a performer of the prayer, and of my offspring (too) : Our Lord! and accept my petitio
14:41  Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents, and the believers on the Day when the reckoning shall come to pass.
14:42  And do not regard Allah to be heedless of what the unjust do. He only respite them (their punishment) to a day on which the eyes shall stare (of terror) ,
14:43  Hastening forward, their heads upraised, their eyes (and eyelids) not blinking and their hearts void.
14:44  And warn the people as to the day when the chastisement comes to them; then those who did injustice will say: 'Our Lord, defer us to a near term, (that) we will answer Your call and follow the messengers'. (They will be told:) 'Did you not swear before that there would be no end for you '
14:45  And you dwelt in the abodes of those who did injustice to themselves oppression on yourself in the houses of those who preceded you, and it became clear for you how we did with them, and We set forth (may) parables for you.
14:46  And indeed they have devised their devising, and their devising is with Allah, though their devising were such as to remove the mountains thereby.
14:47  So do not think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Verily Allah is Mighty, the Lord of Retribution.
14:48  On the day when the earth shall be changed into other than the earth and (so will be) the heavens, and (all men) shall come forth before Allah, the One, the All- Dominant.
14:49  And you will see the guilty on that day bound together in chains.
14:50  Their robes (shall be) of pitch, and their faces covered with Fire,
14:51  That Allah may requite everyone what he has earned, verily Allah is swift at reckoning.
14:52  This is a clear message for mankind and that they may be warned by it, and that they may know that He is God (the only) One, and that those possessors of intellects may take admonition.
