The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Rock, Stoneland, Rock City(al-Hijr)
15:1 Alif. Lam. Ra. These are the signs of the Book and a clear Quran.
15:2 It may be that those who disbelieve will wish that they had submitted.
15:3 Leave them to eat and enjoy themselves and to be beguiled by hopes, for soon they will know.
15:4 Never did We destroy a town, but that it had a known decree.
15:5 No community can hasten its term, nor delay it.
15:6 And they say, “O you unto whom the Reminder has been sent down, truly you are possessed.
15:7 Why do you not bring us the angels, if you are among the truthful?”
15:8 We do not send down the angels, save in truth, and were We to do so, they would be granted no respite.
15:9 Truly it is We Who have sent down the Reminder, and surely We are its Preserver.
15:10 We indeed sent [messengers] before thee to communities among those of old.
15:11 And never did a messenger come unto them, but that they mocked him.
15:12 Thus do We place it into the hearts of the guilty.
15:13 They believe not in it, though the wont of those of old has already passed away.
15:14 Were We to open for them a gate unto Heaven, that they might continue to ascend through it,
15:15 they would say, “Our eyes are merely spellbound. Nay, we are a people bewitched!”
15:16 We have set constellations in the sky, and We have adorned them for the onlookers.
15:17 And We have preserved them from every satan outcast,
15:18 save he who gains a hearing by stealth, and then a manifest flaming star pursues him.
15:19 And the earth We spread out, and cast therein firm mountains, and We caused to grow therein all manner of things in due balance.
15:20 And We placed therein means of livelihood for you and for those for whom you provide not.
15:21 Naught is there, but that its treasuries lie with Us, and We do not send it down, save in a known measure.
15:22 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.
15:23 Surely it is We Who give life and cause death, and We are the Inheritor.
15:24 We indeed know those among you who advance, and We indeed know those who lag behind,
15:25 and verily it is thy Lord who will gather them. Truly He is Wise, Knowing.
15:26 And We indeed created man from dried clay, made of molded mud,
15:27 and the jinn We created earlier from scorching fire.
15:28 And [remember] when thy Lord said unto the angels, “Behold! I am creating a human being from dried clay, made of molded mud;
15:29 so when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, fall down before him prostrating.”
15:30 Thereupon the angels prostrated, all of them together,
15:31 save Iblis. He refused to be with those who prostrated.
15:32 He said, “O Iblis! What ails you that you are not with those who prostrate?”
15:33 He said, “I am not one to prostrate to a human being whom Thou hast created from dried clay, made of molded mud.”
15:34 He said, “Go forth from it! Surely thou art outcast,
15:35 and surely the curse shall be upon thee till the Day of Judgment!”
15:36 He said, “My Lord! Grant me respite till the Day they are resurrected.”
15:37 He said, “Then verily thou art among those granted respite
15:38 till the Day of the Moment Known.”
15:39 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,
15:40 save Thy sincere servants among them.”
15:41 He said, “This is a straight path unto Me.
15:42 As for My servants, truly thou hast no authority over them, save for those in error who follow thee.
15:43 And verily Hell shall be their tryst, all together.”
15:44 Seven gates it has, and for each gate is appointed a separate portion of them.
15:45 Truly the reverent shall be amidst gardens and springs:
15:46 “Enter them in peace, secure”—
15:47 We shall remove whatever rancor lies within their breasts—“as brothers, upon couches, facing one another.”
15:48 No weariness shall befall them therein; nor shall they be expelled therefrom.
15:49 Tell My servants that I am indeed the Forgiving, the Merciful,
15:50 and that My Punishment is the painful punishment.
15:51 And tell them of the guests of Abraham,
15:52 when they entered upon him and said, “Peace!” He said, “Verily of you we are afraid.”
15:53 They said, “Be not afraid. Truly we bring thee glad tidings of a knowing son.”
15:54 He said, “Do you bring me glad tidings when old age has befallen me? So of what do you bring me glad tidings?”
15:55 They said, “We bring thee glad tidings in truth; so be not among those who despair.”
15:56 He said, “Who despairs of the Mercy of his Lord, save those who are astray?”
15:57 He said, “What is your errand,
15:58 messengers?”
15:59 They said, “We have been sent unto a guilty people,
15:60 save for the family of Lot. We shall surely save them, all together,
15:61 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,
15:62 he said, “Verily you are an unfamiliar folk.”
15:63 They said, “Nay, but we bring thee that which they used to doubt.
15:64 And we bring thee the truth, and surely we are truthful.
15:65 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.”
15:66 And We decreed this matter unto him: that the last remnant of those people will be rooted out in the morning.
15:67 And the people of the city came, rejoicing.
15:68 He said, “Truly these are my guests; so dishonor me not!
15:69 Reverence God, and disgrace me not.”
15:70 They said, “Did we not forbid you from [providing protection] to all the people?”
15:71 He said, “These are my daughters, if you must act.”
15:72 By thy life, they wandered confused in their drunkenness.
15:73 So the Cry seized them at sunrise,
15:74 then We made its uppermost to be its lowermost, and We rained down upon them stones of baked clay.
15:75 Truly in that are signs for those who discern,
15:76 and verily they are on a path still standing.
15:77 Truly in that is a sign for the believers.
15:78 And verily the inhabitants of the thicket were wrongdoers.
15:79 So We took vengeance upon them. Truly the two of them are on a clear road.
15:80 And indeed the inhabitants of al-?ijr denied the messengers.
15:81 And We gave them Our signs, but they used to turn away therefrom.
15:82 And they would hew dwellings in the mountains, [feeling] secure.
15:83 Yet the Cry seized them in the morning,
15:84 and that which they used to earn availed them not.
15:85 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.
15:86 Truly thy Lord is the knowing Creator.
15:87 And We have indeed given thee the seven oft-repeated, and the Mighty Quran.
15:88 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,
15:89 and say, “Truly I am the clear warner.”
15:90 Such as We have sent down for those who make division,
15:91 who made the Quran into fragments.
15:92 So by thy Lord, We shall question them all
15:93 concerning that which they used to do.
15:94 So proclaim as thou hast been commanded, and turn away from the idolaters.
15:95 Truly We shall suffice thee against those who mock,
15:96 those who set up another god along with God; yet soon they will know.
15:97 And certainly We know that thy breast is straitened because of what they say.
15:98 So hymn the praise of thy Lord, and be among those who prostrate.
15:99 And worship thy Lord, till certainty comes unto thee.
