Alif. Lam. Ra! These are the (Holy) ‘Verses’ of the (comprehensive) Book, and of a manifest Qur’ān
It may be that those who excessively indulge in disbelief in Allâh will wish ardently that they had submitted (themselves completely to the Authority of Allâh).
Let them eat, enjoy, and be engrossed in (false) hope. Soon they will come to know (the truth)!
We never destroyed a township but there was a known decree for it.
No nation can precede its term, neither can they postpone it.
They say: "O’ you, (‘Muhammad;), to whom the ‘'Revealer of Truth'’, (the Qur'ân), has been sent down. You are absolutely insane.
Why do you not bring the ‘Angels’ to us if you are (really) of the truthful?"
We do not send down angels except for a genuine reason; and they would not then be reprieved.
It is We Who have sent down the ‘'Revealer of Truth'’, (the Qur'ân), and certainly We are it's Guardian.
Verily, We sent ‘Messengers’ before you, (O’ Muhammad), among the sects of yore.
There never came a ‘Messenger’ to them but they scoffed at him.
This is how We let (the habit of mocking the ‘Messenger’) flourish in the hearts of the ungodly sinners.
They believe not in It, (the ‘Qur'ân’), though the example of the ancients has gone before.
Even if we opened for them a gate into the sky and they keep on ascending into it,
They would definitely say: “Our eyes have been deprived of sight, nay, We have been bewitched."
Verily, We made constellations in the heavens, adorned it for the beholders.
And guarded it from every outcast devil,
Except he who steals a hearing is pursued by a fiery meteor.
As for the earth, We spread it out, placed in it firm hills, and caused to grow in it all kinds of things in due proportion.
We have made for you therein means of livelihood and for those (animals, birds, fish, etc.) whom you are not providers.
There is not a thing but with Us are the treasures of it, and We send it not down except in a known measure.
We send the winds fertilizing, and cause water to to descend from the sky, so We give it to you to drink. Lo! You are not its storekeepers.
Indeed, it is We Who give life and cause death, and We are the Inheritors.
Indeed, We know those among you who go forward; and We definitely know those who regress.
Verily, your Lord will gather them together. Absolutely, He is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
Verily, We created man from sounding clay of altered black mud.
As for the jinn, we created them, before that, from the smokeless flame of fire.
(Recall) when your Lord said unto the ‘Angels’: "I am going to create a man, (‘Adam’), from sounding clay of altered black mud.
So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall (ye) down prostrating yourselves to him."
So the ‘Angels’ prostrated themselves, all of them together
Except ‘Satan’. He refused to be among those who prostrated themselves.
(Allâh) said: "O’ Iblīs (-Satan-), what is the reason that you are not among those who prostrated themselves?"
Iblīs said: "It would not be possible for me to prostrate myself to a mortal, whom You created from sounding clay of altered black mud."
(Allâh) said: "Then get out of it! Surely you are expelled!
Verily, the curse will abide in you till the ‘Day of Judgment’."
Iblīs said: “My Lord, then reprieve me till the day when they are raised."
(Allâh) said: "Surely, you are among those who are reprieved
Till the day of the appointed time."
Iblīs said: “My Lord, as You mislead me, I will definitely adorn (the path of evil ) from them ; and I will definitely mislead them all.
Except for your faithful servants among them.”
(Allâh) said: "This is the path which leads straight to Me.
Verily, You have no power to enforce obedience over My servants except for those who fall into temptation and follow you.
Certainly, ‘Gehenna’ is the promised place for them all.
It has seven gates; each gate is designated for a specific group of people.”
Indeed, the Pious (or those who show honor and reverence for Allâh/ or those who guard themselves against falling into sin and temptation) will be in gardens and springs.
(It will be said unto them): “Enter it in peace and security.”
We shall remove from their breasts any sense of resentment, (so they will be like) brothers facing each other on raised couches.
No lassitude will ever touch them therein, neither will they be expelled from it.
Inform My servants that I am the Oft-Forgiving, the Most-Merciful,
And that My Chastisement is definitely the most painful torment.
Inform them about the guests of ‘Abraham’
When they entered upon him, saying: "Peace." He said: "Indeed, "We are afraid of you."
They, (the ‘Angels’), said: "Do not be afraid! For behold, I announce to you the joyful news of a boy endowed with wisdom."
He said: “Do you give me joyful news (of a boy) when old age has touched me? Of what then do you give me joyful news?
They said: "We announce to you the joyful news in truth. Thus don't be of those who despair."
He said: "No one despairs of the Mercy of his Lord except for those who are astray?”
He said: "What then is your mission, O’ ‘Messengers’?"
They said: "We have been sent to a folk of ungodly sinners.
Except for the family of Lot’. We will definitely save them all,
Except for his wife." We decreed that she should be of those who remain behind.
Thus, when the ‘Messengers’ came to the family of Lot’ ,
He said: “Certainly you are people unknown ( here)."
They said: "Nay, we have come to you with that about which they were disputing.
We have come to you with the truth, and we are absolutely truthful.
Thus, go forth with your family in a part of the night, and you follow them in the rear, and let no one among you look back. But keep going to where you are commanded."
We decreed for him that commandment, that the root of those (sinners) shall be uprooted by early morning.
The people of the city came rejoicing.
Lot’ said: “Indeed, these are my guests, thus, do not disgrace me.
Act piously towards Allâh (or show honor and reverence for Allâh) and do not humiliate me."
They said: "Did we not forbid you to entertain anyone?"
Lot’ said: "These are my daughters if you intend to do."
By your life, (O’ ‘Muhammad’), they were definitely, in their state of inebriation, wandering blindly.
Thus, the (dreadful) cry seized them at sunrise.
We turned (the city) , and poured down upon them stones of baked clay.
Indeed, in this are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for those who discern.
Indeed, (the ruin of that city) is on a road that still exists.
indeed , in this is a sign ( of Allâh’s power & glory) for those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism.
The ‘Companions of the Thicket’ were definitely iniquitous,
So We inflicted retribution on them. Both towns are on a conspicuous highway.
Indeed, the ‘Companions (of) the Rocky Tract’ (-the tribe of ‘Thamūd’) belied Our ‘Messengers’.
We brought them Our Signs but they insisted on turning away from them in a repulsive manner.
They used to grave houses out of the mountains, therein dwelling safely;
Thus, the (dreadful) cry seized them at sunrise in the early morning.
Thus nothing availed them from what they used to gain.
We created not the heavens, the earth and all that is between them (for naught) but with genuine reason. The ‘(Inevitable) Hour’ is absolutely coming. Thus, forgive with gracious forgiveness.
Your Lord is definitely the All-knowing Creator.
Indeed, We have bestowed upon you seven of the oft-repeated (Verses) and the Glorious Qur'ân.
Extend not your eyes toward what We have bestowed on certain classes of them (of the Unbelievers), neither do you grieve over them. Lower your wing to the ‘Monotheistic Believers’,
And say: “I am truly ‘the perspicuous warner’ ( giving humanity sufficient warning about how to avoid ‘Hellfire’).”
Like as We sent down on the dividers,
Who have made the ‘Qur'ân’ into segments.
Thus, by Your Lord, We will definitely question them all
About what they used to do.
Then proclaim what you are commanded and turn away from the ‘Polytheists’.
We will definitely suffice you against the scoffers,
Who set up along with Allâh another god. They will come to know (the truth).
Verily, We certainly know that your breast is straitened by what they say.
Thus, glorify the praise of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him).
Worship (& venerate) your Lord until there comes to you the certainty (i.e. death)!.
