14:1  Alif. Lam. Ra. [This is] a Book that We have sent down unto thee, that thou mightest bring forth mankind out of darkness into light, by the leave of their Lord, unto the path of the Mighty, the Praised
14:2  God, unto Whom belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. Woe unto the disbelievers for a severe punishment
14:3  Those who prefer the life of this world over the Hereafter, and who turn from the way of God and seek to make it crooked; it is they who are far astray
14:4  And We have sent no messenger, save in the language of his people, that he might make clear unto them. Then God leads astray whomsoever He will and guides whomsoever He will. And He is the Mighty, the Wise
14:5  We indeed sent Moses with Our signs, “Bring thy people out of darkness into light, and remind them of the Days of God. Truly in that are signs for all who are patient, thankful.
14:6  And [remember] when Moses said unto his people, “Remember God’s Blessing upon you, when He saved you from the House of Pharaoh, who inflicted terrible punishment upon you, slaying your sons and sparing your women—and in that was a great trial from your Lord
14:7  and when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you give thanks, I shall surely grant you increase, but if you are ungrateful, truly My Punishment is severe!’
14:8  And Moses said, “If you are ungrateful—you and whosoever is on the earth all together—[know that] verily God is Self-Sufficient, Praised.
14:9  Has not the account come to you of those who came before you—the people of Noah, and ?Ad, and Thamud, and those who came after them? None knows them but God. Their messengers brought them clear proofs, but they thrust their hands into their mouths and said, “Verily we disbelieve in that wherewith you have been sent, and we are in grave doubt about that to which you call us.
14:10  Their messengers said, “Is there any doubt concerning God, the Originator of the heavens and the earth? He calls you that He might forgive some of your sins and grant you reprieve till a term appointed.” They said, “You are but human beings like us. You desire to turn us away from that which our fathers used to worship. So bring us a manifest authority!
14:11  Their messengers said unto them, “We are but human beings like yourselves, but God is gracious unto whomsoever He will among His servants. And it is not for us to bring you an authority, save by God’s Leave; so in God let the believers trust
14:12  And why should we not trust in God, when He has guided us in our ways? And we shall surely endure patiently, however you may torment us. And let those who trust, trust in God.
14:13  But those who disbelieved said to their messengers, “We shall surely expel you from our land, or you shall revert to our creed.” So their Lord revealed unto them, “We shall surely destroy the wrongdoers
14:14  And We shall surely make you to dwell in the land after them. This is for those who fear My Station and fear My Threat.
14:15  And they sought victory, and every stubborn tyrant fails
14:16  Beyond him lies Hell; and he shall be given to drink of oozing pus
14:17  which he will gulp down, but can scarcely swallow. Death shall come upon him from every side; yet he will not die, and before him lies a grave punishment
14:18  The parable of those who disbelieve in their Lord: their deeds are as ashes that the wind blows hard on a stormy day. They have no power over aught they have earned. That is extreme error
14:19  Hast thou not considered that God created the heavens and the earth in truth? If He wills, He can remove you and bring a new creation
14:20  and that is no great matter for God
14:21  They will appear before God all together, and the weak will say to those who waxed arrogant, “Truly we were your followers; so can you avail us in any way against the Punishment of God?” They will say, “Had God guided us, we would have guided you. It is the same for us whether we are anxious or patient; for us there is no refuge.
14:22  And Satan will say, when the matter has been decreed, “Verily God made you the Promise of truth; and I made you a promise, but I failed you. And I had no authority over you, save that I called you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me, but blame yourselves. I cannot respond to your cries for help; nor can you respond to my cries for help. Truly I disbelieved in your ascribing me as partner aforetime. As for the wrongdoers, surely theirs shall be a painful punishment.
14:23  Those who believe and perform righteous deeds shall be made to enter Gardens with rivers running below, abiding therein by the leave of their Lord. Their greeting therein shall be, “Peace!
14:24  Hast thou not considered how God sets forth a parable? A good word is as a good tree: its roots firm and its branches in the sky
14:25  It brings forth fruit in every season, by the Leave of its Lord. God sets forth parables for mankind, that haply they may remember
14:26  And the parable of a bad word is a bad tree: uprooted from the face of the earth; it has no stability
14:27  God makes firm those who believe with firm speech in the life of this world and in the Hereafter. And God leads the wrongdoers astray; God does whatsoever He wills
14:28  Hast thou not considered those who exchanged the Blessing of God for ingratitude and caused their people to dwell in the abode of perdition
14:29  Hell, wherein they shall burn. What an evil dwelling place
14:30  They set up equals unto God, that they might lead astray from His Way. Say, “Enjoy yourselves! For truly your journey is unto the Fire!
14:31  Tell My servants who believe to perform the prayer and to spend from that which We have provided them, secretly and openly, before a day comes wherein there shall be neither bargaining nor befriending
14:32  God it is Who created the heavens and the earth, and sent down water from the sky, then brought forth fruits thereby for your provision. He has made the ships subservient unto you, so that they sail upon the sea by His Command, and has made the rivers subservient unto you
14:33  And He has made the sun and the moon subservient unto you, constant, and He made the night and the day subservient unto you
14:34  And He gives you something of all that you ask of Him, and were you to count the Blessings of God, you could not number them. Truly mankind is wrongdoing, ungrateful
14:35  And [remember] when Abraham said, “My Lord! Make this land secure, and keep me and my children from worshipping idols
14:36  My Lord! Surely they have led astray many among mankind. So whosoever follows me, he is of me. And whosoever disobeys me, surely Thou art Forgiving, Merciful
14:37  Our Lord! Verily I have settled some of my progeny in a valley without cultivation by Thy Sacred House, our Lord, that they might perform the prayer. So cause the hearts of some men to incline toward them, and provide them with fruits, that haply they may give thanks
14:38  Our Lord! Surely Thou knowest what we hide and what we disclose. And naught is hidden from God, on earth or in Heaven
14:39  Praise be to God, Who bestowed upon me Ishmael and Isaac, in my old age. Truly my Lord is the Hearer of supplications
14:40  My Lord! Make me a performer of prayer, and my progeny. Our Lord! Accept my supplication
14:41  Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents and the believers on the Day when the Reckoning is come.
14:42  Do not suppose that God is heedless of the deeds of the wrongdoers; He merely grants them reprieve till a day when eyes will stare, transfixed
14:43  running with necks outstretched and heads upraised, their glance returning not to them, their hearts vacant
14:44  And warn mankind of the Day when the punishment shall come upon them, whereupon those who did wrong will say, “Our Lord! Grant us reprieve for a term nigh, that we might respond to Thy Call and follow the messengers.” [It will be said unto them], “Did you not earlier swear that there would be no end for you?
14:45  And you settled in the dwellings of those who had wronged themselves, though it was made clear to you how We dealt with them, and We set forth for you the parables
14:46  And they devised their plot, but their plot lies with God, though their plotting be such as to move mountains
14:47  So do not suppose that He would fail to keep His Promise unto His messengers. Truly God is Mighty, Possessor of Vengeance
14:48  On that Day the earth shall be changed into other than the earth, and the heavens [too], and they will appear before God, the One, the Paramount
14:49  On that Day thou wilt see the guilty bound together in fetters
14:50  their garments made of pitch, and the Fire covering their faces
14:51  that God may recompense every soul for that which it has earned; surely God is swift in reckoning
14:52  This is a proclamation unto mankind, that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is the One God, and that the possessors of intellect might be reminded
