15:1  Alif, Lam, Ra. These are verses of the Book and the enlightening Qur‘an
15:2  On many occasions, the disbelievers will wish that they were Muslims
15:3  Let them eat and enjoy, and let (their) fancy make them neglectful, for they shall soon come to know (their ultimate end)
15:4  We did not destroy any town without having a pre-determined time for it
15:5  No people can precede their appointed time, nor can they exceed it
15:6  They say, .O you to whom the Dhikr (the Qur‘an) has been revealed, you are surely insane
15:7  Why do you not bring the angels to us, if you are one of the truthful?
15:8  We do not send down the angels except with truth, and then they shall be given no respite
15:9  We, Ourselves, have sent down the Dhikr (the Qur‘an), and We are there to protect it
15:10  We did send the messengers before you among the groups of earlier peoples
15:11  No messenger came to them but they used to mock at him
15:12  Likewise, We make it (i.e. disbelief) enter into the hearts of the sinners
15:13  (whereby) they do not believe in it (the Qur‘an), and this has been the way of earlier people
15:14  Even if We open a gate in the sky and they keep ascending through it
15:15  still they will say, .In fact our eyes have been deluded; rather we are enchanted people
15:16  We have created stellar formations in the sky and have beautified them for onlookers
15:17  and have protected them from every outcast devil
15:18  but the one who tries to eavesdrop is chased by a clearly visible flame
15:19  As for the earth, We have stretched it out and placed on it firm mountains, and We have caused to grow in it everything well-balanced
15:20  and created in it sources of sustenance for you and those (creatures) for whom you are not the sustainers
15:21  We have treasures of every thing, but We send it down only in a determined quantity
15:22  And We sent forth winds carrying the clouds, then sent down water from the sky and gave it to you to drink, and you are not able to store it
15:23  It is indeed We, and only We, who give life and bring death, and We are the ultimate inheritor (of everything)
15:24  We know those of you who went ahead, and We know those who remained late
15:25  Surely, your Lord will gather all of them together. Indeed He is All-Wise, All-Knowing
15:26  Indeed We created man from a ringing clay made of decayed mud
15:27  As for the Jann (the first Jinn), We had created him earlier from the fire of the scorching wind
15:28  Recall when your Lord said to the angels, .I am going to create a human being from a ringing clay made of decayed mud
15:29  When I form him perfect, and blow in him of My spirit, then you must fall down before him in prostration
15:30  So the angels prostrated themselves, all together
15:31  except Iblis (Satan). He refused to join those who prostrated
15:32  He (Allah) said, .O Iblis, what is the matter with you that you did not join those who prostrated?
15:33  He said, .I am not such that I should prostrate myself before a mortal whom You have created from a ringing clay made of decayed mud
15:34  He said, .Then, get out of here, for you are an outcast
15:35  and upon you is the curse up to the Day of Judgment
15:36  He said, .My Lord, then give me respite up to the day they (the dead) shall be raised
15:37  He (Allah) said, .Well, respite is given to yo
15:38  till the day of the Appointed Time
15:39  He said, .My Lord, since You made me go astray, I swear that I shall beautify for them (evils) on the earth, and shall lead all of them astray
15:40  except those of Your servants from among them who are chosen (by You)
15:41  He (Allah) said, .This is the straight path leading to Me (that a person is chosen by Me through his good deeds)
15:42  My servants are such that you have no power over them except those of the deviators who will follow you
15:43  And Jahannam (Hell) is the promised place for them all
15:44  It has seven gates. For each gate there is a group apportioned from them
15:45  Surely, the God-fearing will be in gardens and streams
15:46  .Enter here in peace, free of fear
15:47  We shall have removed whatever grudge they had in their hearts, (thus making them) brothers, sitting on couches, face to face
15:48  No weariness shall touch them nor will they be expelled from there
15:49  Tell My servants that I am the Most-Forgiving, the Very-Merciful
15:50  and that My punishment is the painful punishment
15:51  and tell them about the guests of Ibrahim
15:52  When they visited him, they greeted him with Salam (peace on you). He said, .We are scared of you
15:53  They said, .Do not be scared. We give you good news of a boy who will be knowledgeable
15:54  He said, .Do you give me the good news despite the old age has befallen me? So what good news you are giving to me?
15:55  They said, .We have given to you the good news of a fact. So do not be one of those who lose hope
15:56  He said, .Who can lose hope in the mercy of his Lord except those who have lost the straight path?
15:57  He said, .Then, what is your mission, O messengers?
15:58  They said, .We have been sent to a sinful people
15:59  except the family of LuT - all of whom we shall save
15:60  but his wife. We have ordained that she will be among those who will remain behind
15:61  So when the messengers came to the family of LuT
15:62  he said, .You are an unfamiliar people
15:63  They said, .No, but we have brought to you that (scourge) in which they have been doubting
15:64  and we have come to you with a definite matter and surely we are truthful
15:65  So, carry your family after a part of the night (has passed), and follow them at the rear (to make sure that all of your family has joined you), and no one from you should look back; and keep going to where you are commanded
15:66  We conveyed to him Our decision that they (the unbelievers) were to be totally uprooted when they would see the morning
15:67  And the people of the city came rejoicing
15:68  He (LuT) said, .They are my guests; so do not put me to shame
15:69  and fear Allah and do not disgrace me
15:70  They said, .Had we not forbidden you from (being the guardian of) the whole world?
15:71  He said, .These are my daughters, if you are to do something
15:72  By your life, (O prophet) they were wandering blindly in their intoxication (misguidance)
15:73  So, they were seized by the Cry at sunrise
15:74  Then, We turned it (the city) upside down and rained down upon them stones of baked clay
15:75  Surely, in that there are signs for those who read signs
15:76  Surely, it (their city) is located on the straight road
15:77  Surely, in it there is a sign for the believers
15:78  And the people of Aikah were (also) transgressors
15:79  So, We punished them in retribution, and both of them are (situated) by a highway, clearly visible
15:80  And the people of Al-Hijr gave the lie to the messengers
15:81  We provided them with Our signs, yet they kept turning away from them
15:82  They used to hew out houses from the hills peacefully
15:83  Then, the Cry seized them by the morning
15:84  So, whatever they earned did not come to their help
15:85  We did not create the heavens and the earth and all that is in between them without a truthful purpose. The Hour is sure to come. Therefore, overlook (their evil behavior) in a gracious manner
15:86  Surely, your Lord is the Creator of all, the All-Knowing
15:87  We have given you the seven oft-repeated verses and the glorious Qur‘an
15:88  Never stretch your eyes towards what We have given to groups of them to enjoy, and do not grieve for them, and be kind to believers in humbleness
15:89  and say, .I am a plain warner indeed
15:90  (to warn them that We may send down the scourge upon them) as We sent down upon the dividers
15:91  who had split the divine recitation (Scriptures) into bits
15:92  So, by your Lord, We shall question all of them
15:93  about what they have been doing
15:94  Now, proclaim what you are commanded to, and turn away from those who ascribe partners to Allah
15:95  Surely, We are sufficient for you against those who deride
15:96  __ those who believe in any other god along with Allah. So, they shall soon learn (the reality)
15:97  We know that your heart feels distressed for what they say
15:98  So, proclaim the purity and glory of your Lord, and be among those who prostrate themselves (before Allah)
15:99  and worship your Lord until comes to you that which is certain
