15:4  Whenever We destroyed a town, there was a known decree for it.
15:5  No community precedes its fixed term nor do they delay it.
15:6  And they say: oh you whom the reminder has been revealed to, you are possessed.
15:7  Why don´t you bring us the angels if you are truthful?
15:8  We only send the angels with the truth, and then they will not be spared.
15:9  For We have revealed the reminder and We guard it.
15:10  And before you We sent to the earliest communities.
15:11  And whenever a messenger came to them, they made fun of him.
15:12  This is how We let it pass through the hearts of the sinful.
15:13  They do not believe in it, and the example of the earliest communities has already gone before.
15:14  And even if We opened a door of heaven for them so they could climb up through it,
15:15  They would say: our eyesight has been fooled, no we have been bewitched as people.

15:22  And We sent the pollinating wind, then sent down from the sky water to give you to drink from it and it is not you who keep its reserves.
15:23  And indeed We give life and give death and We are the inheritors.
15:24  We already know those of you who go ahead and those who stay behind.

15:26  And We created man from a cement of altered mud.
15:27  And the Jinn We created before from dry hot fire.
15:28  And when your Lord said to the angels: I am creating a human from a cement of altered mud.
15:29  Then when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of My spirit, fall prostate before him.
15:30  Then all the angels prostrated.
15:31  Except Iblis (the devil), he refused to be with those who prostrated.
15:32  He said: oh Iblis, what is the matter with you that you were not with those who prostrated.
15:33  He said: I am not going to prostrate to a human whom You created from a cement of altered mud.
15:34  He said: then get out of here, for you are cursed.
15:35  And the curse will be upon you until the day of repayment.
15:36  He said: my Lord, then give me time till the day when they are resurrected.
15:37  He said: then you are given time.
15:38  Till the day of the time known.
15:39  He said: my Lord, because You allowed me to stray I shall make it appealing for them on earth and lead them all astray.
15:40  Except Your sincere servants amongst them.
15:41  He said: this is a straight path for Me.
15:42  You have no authority over My servants except those who follow you of the misguided.
15:43  And hell is the abode for all of them.
15:44  It has seven gates, for each gate a portion of them will be assigned.
15:45  Those who beware (of Allah) will be in gardens and springs.
15:46  Enter safely with peace.
15:47  And We remove what is within them of ill feeling, they accept each other happily as brothers.
15:48  No hardship afflicts them there and they will not be expelled from there.
15:49  Inform My servants that I am the forgiving and merciful.
15:50  And that My punishment is a painful punishment.
15:51  And inform them of the guests of Ibrahim (Abraham).
15:52  When they entered upon him and said: peace. He said: we are afraid of you.
15:53  They said: don´t be afraid, for we give you good news of a knowledgeable boy.
15:54  He said: do you give me good news after old age has afflicted me? On what account do you give me good news?
15:55  They said: we give you good news based on the truth, so do not be of those who despair.
15:56  He said: and who would despair of the mercy of his Lord except those in error?
15:57  He said: So what have you come for, oh messengers?
15:58  They said: we were sent to the sinful people.
15:59  Except the family of Lut (Lot), we will rescue all of them.
15:60  Except his wife, we have decided that she is of those who stay behind.
15:61  Then when the messengers came to the family of Lut (Lot),
15:62  He said: you are unfamiliar people.
15:63  They said: but we have come to you with what they were in doubt of.
15:64  And we have reached you with the truth and we tell the truth.
15:65  So travel with your family part of the night and follow behind them and let not any of them look back and go to where you have been commanded.
15:66  And We decided for him in this matter that the remainder of these will be cut off in the morning.
15:67  And the people of the town came rejoicing.
15:68  He said: these are my guests, so do not dishonour me.
15:69  And beware of Allah and do not disgrace me.
15:70  They said: did we not forbid you contact with everybody else?
15:71  He said: these are my daughters if you have to do it.
15:72  By your life, they were blind in their intoxication.
15:73  Then the roar overtook them at sunrise.
15:74  Then We turned them upside down and rained upon them hardened stones.
15:75  In this are indeed signs for those who observe.
15:76  And they are on an established route.
15:77  In this is indeed a sign for the believers.
15:78  And the inhabitants of the woodlands were wrongdoers.
15:79  So we took revenge on them and they are clearly visible ahead.
15:80  And the inhabitants of the stone dwellings denied the messengers.
15:81  And they brought them Our signs, but they turned away from them.
15:82  And they carved out safe homes from the mountains.
15:83  Then the roar overtook them in the morning.
15:84  And what they had gathered did not benefit them.
15:85  And We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them except with truth, and the hour will come, so leave them nicely alone.
15:86  For your Lord is the knowledgeable creator.
15:87  And We gave you seven of the repeated (verses) and the great Qur´an.
15:88  Do not extend your eyes to the enjoyment We have given some couples of them and do not worry about them and give comfort to the believers.
15:89  And say: I am the clear warner.
15:90  Like We sent to those who like to cause division.
15:91  Those who are selective about the Qur´an.
15:92  By your Lord, We will ask them all.
15:93  About what they used to do.
15:94  So declare what you have been commanded with and turn away from the idolaters.
15:95  We suffice you against those who mock you.
15:96  Those who claim there is another god with Allah, they will soon know.
15:97  And We know that what they say makes you uptight.
15:98  So glorify the praise of your Lord and be of those who prostrate.
15:99  And serve your Lord until the inevitable reaches you.
