Alif. Lam. Ra. These are the signs of the Book and a clear Quran
It may be that those who disbelieve will wish that they had submitted
Leave them to eat and enjoy themselves and to be beguiled by hopes, for soon they will know
Never did We destroy a town, but that it had a known decree
No community can hasten its term, nor delay it
And they say, “O you unto whom the Reminder has been sent down, truly you are possessed
Why do you not bring us the angels, if you are among the truthful?
We do not send down the angels, save in truth, and were We to do so, they would be granted no respite
Truly it is We Who have sent down the Reminder, and surely We are its Preserver
We indeed sent [messengers] before thee to communities among those of old
And never did a messenger come unto them, but that they mocked him
Thus do We place it into the hearts of the guilty
They believe not in it, though the wont of those of old has already passed away
Were We to open for them a gate unto Heaven, that they might continue to ascend through it
they would say, “Our eyes are merely spellbound. Nay, we are a people bewitched!
We have set constellations in the sky, and We have adorned them for the onlookers
And We have preserved them from every satan outcast
save he who gains a hearing by stealth, and then a manifest flaming star pursues him
And the earth We spread out, and cast therein firm mountains, and We caused to grow therein all manner of things in due balance
And We placed therein means of livelihood for you and for those for whom you provide not
Naught is there, but that its treasuries lie with Us, and We do not send it down, save in a known measure
And We sent forth the winds, fertilizing. And We sent down water from the sky, providing you with sufficient drink thereby, and you are not the keepers of its stores
Surely it is We Who give life and cause death, and We are the Inheritor
We indeed know those among you who advance, and We indeed know those who lag behind
and verily it is thy Lord who will gather them. Truly He is Wise, Knowing
And We indeed created man from dried clay, made of molded mud
and the jinn We created earlier from scorching fire
And [remember] when thy Lord said unto the angels, “Behold! I am creating a human being from dried clay, made of molded mud
so when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, fall down before him prostrating.
Thereupon the angels prostrated, all of them together
save Iblis. He refused to be with those who prostrated
He said, “O Iblis! What ails you that you are not with those who prostrate?
He said, “I am not one to prostrate to a human being whom Thou hast created from dried clay, made of molded mud.
He said, “Go forth from it! Surely thou art outcast
and surely the curse shall be upon thee till the Day of Judgment!
He said, “My Lord! Grant me respite till the Day they are resurrected.
He said, “Then verily thou art among those granted respit
till the Day of the Moment Known.
He said, “My Lord! Since Thou hast caused me to err, I shall surely make things seem fair unto them on earth, and I shall cause them to err all together
save Thy sincere servants among them.
He said, “This is a straight path unto Me
As for My servants, truly thou hast no authority over them, save for those in error who follow thee
And verily Hell shall be their tryst, all together.
Seven gates it has, and for each gate is appointed a separate portion of them
Truly the reverent shall be amidst gardens and springs
“Enter them in peace, secure”
We shall remove whatever rancor lies within their breasts—“as brothers, upon couches, facing one another.
No weariness shall befall them therein; nor shall they be expelled therefrom
Tell My servants that I am indeed the Forgiving, the Merciful
and that My Punishment is the painful punishment
And tell them of the guests of Abraham
when they entered upon him and said, “Peace!” He said, “Verily of you we are afraid.
They said, “Be not afraid. Truly we bring thee glad tidings of a knowing son.
He said, “Do you bring me glad tidings when old age has befallen me? So of what do you bring me glad tidings?
They said, “We bring thee glad tidings in truth; so be not among those who despair.
He said, “Who despairs of the Mercy of his Lord, save those who are astray?
He said, “What is your errand
They said, “We have been sent unto a guilty people
save for the family of Lot. We shall surely save them, all together
except for his wife; We have determined that she is indeed among those who lagged behind.” a So when the messengers came to the family of Lot
he said, “Verily you are an unfamiliar folk.
They said, “Nay, but we bring thee that which they used to doubt
And we bring thee the truth, and surely we are truthful
So set out with thy family during the night, and follow behind them, and let not any of you turn around, but go forth wheresoever you are commanded.
And We decreed this matter unto him: that the last remnant of those people will be rooted out in the morning
And the people of the city came, rejoicing
He said, “Truly these are my guests; so dishonor me not
Reverence God, and disgrace me not.
They said, “Did we not forbid you from [providing protection] to all the people?
He said, “These are my daughters, if you must act.
By thy life, they wandered confused in their drunkenness
So the Cry seized them at sunrise
then We made its uppermost to be its lowermost, and We rained down upon them stones of baked clay
Truly in that are signs for those who discern
and verily they are on a path still standing
Truly in that is a sign for the believers
And verily the inhabitants of the thicket were wrongdoers
So We took vengeance upon them. Truly the two of them are on a clear road
And indeed the inhabitants of al-?ijr denied the messengers
And We gave them Our signs, but they used to turn away therefrom
And they would hew dwellings in the mountains, [feeling] secure
Yet the Cry seized them in the morning
and that which they used to earn availed them not
And We did not create the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them, save in truth. And surely the Hour is coming; so forbear with beautiful forbearance
Truly thy Lord is the knowing Creator
And We have indeed given thee the seven oft-repeated, and the Mighty Quran
Strain not thine eyes toward the enjoyments We have bestowed upon certain classes of them, and grieve not for them, and lower thy wing unto the believers
and say, “Truly I am the clear warner.
Such as We have sent down for those who make division
who made the Quran into fragments
So by thy Lord, We shall question them al
concerning that which they used to do
So proclaim as thou hast been commanded, and turn away from the idolaters
Truly We shall suffice thee against those who mock
those who set up another god along with God; yet soon they will know
And certainly We know that thy breast is straitened because of what they say
So hymn the praise of thy Lord, and be among those who prostrate
And worship thy Lord, till certainty comes unto thee
