We have spread out the Earth, set mountains on it, and grew all kinds of plants and animals in a balanced ecosystem,
and We made livelihood on Earth
for you and others you don’t provide for.
There is no living
thing for which We don’t have storehouses, which We release in known quantities.
We send winds to cross-pollinate the flowers
,rain from the sky which you drink; you have no control over the water wells.
We give life and death, and We are the heirs of all things
We know those who went before you; We know those who will come after you;
and He’s Your Lord, Who will gather all, the Wise, the Knower
We created the first
human from dried clay out of dark mud,
before which We created the jinn from smokeless fire.
when Your Lord said to the angels, “I am creating a human with dried clay out of dark mud.
Once I have shaped and blown My spirit into him, then prostrate before him.”
So all the angels prostrated,
except Iblis,who refused to prostrate.
Allah said, “Iblis, why didn’t you prostrate?”
He replied, “I’m not prepared to prostrate before a human You created with dried clay out of dark mud.”
said, “Then leave, you shall be pelted with stones
curse will be on you until Judgement Day.”
asked, “My Lord, grant me respite until the day they are resurrected.”
said, “You are granted respite
until the date of appointed time.”
said, “My Lord, since You have left me to go astray, I will make life
on Earth attractive to them and lead them astray,
except some of Your chosen servants.
said, “This is a straight path that leads
You shall have no control over My servants, except the misled ones who chose to
The promised destiny for all of them is Hell
with its seven gates, each gate receiving its allotted share.”
The mindful will be in gardens with fountains.
They will be invited
: “Enter Paradise
in peace and safety.”
We shall remove any grudges they had
in their hearts towards others ,
making them brothers, relaxing
on sofas face-to-face.
They will never feel tired nor be expelled from it.

Tell them about Ibrahim’s guests,
when they came to him, saying, “Peace!” He answered, “We’re afraid of you.”
said, “Don’t be afraid. We bring you good news of a scholarly son.”
He said, “You’ve brought me good news when old age has caught up with me? What good news have you brought me?”
They said, “Don’t despair, we bring you good news.”
He said, “Only the misguided despair of the Lord’s kindness.”
asked, “Messengers, what’s your mission?”
They told him, “We’ve been sent to destroy
the sinners’ community,
but we’ll save Lut’s family
except his wife, who’ll remain behind.
When the angels came to Lut’s home,
he said, “You’re strangers for me.”
They said, “We’ve brought you what they doubt.
We’ve brought the truth, and we are the truthful.
Tonight set off with your family, following behind them. Let no one look back, but continue as you are told.”
We decided this for him; all traces of the sinners
will be smashed when they wake up at dawn
The people of the town came excitedly to Lut’s home
Lut told them, “These are my guests, so don’t shame me.
Fear Allah and don’t disgrace me.”
They said, “Haven’t we told you not to interfere in our affairs

when the Blast overtook them at sunrise;
and We turned their town

In this are signs for the intelligent people.
It is still visible
along one of the established trade
Here are signs for the believers
The people of the woodlandwere evil,
so We took vengeance on them, and both towns remain
easily visible off an open highway.
The people of the Hijr region
called the messengers liars.
We brought them Our signs, but they turned away from them.
They carved houses in the mountains, living safely
the Blast overtook them at dawn;
and their wealth didn’t benefit them in any way.
We created the Heavens, the Earth and what lies between them for a true

Don’t look longingly at worldly pleasures
We gave some
of their groups to enjoy, and don’t be unhappy about them; instead
take the believers under your wing,
and say: “I’m, a clear warner.
We have already spoken regarding those who divided the scripture
and those who abused the Quran;
by your Lord, Messenger

and continue to worship your Lord until you die.In the name of Allah, the Kind the Caring
