18:1  All Praise (is) for Allah the One Who (has) revealed to His slave the Book, and not (has) made in it any crookedness.
18:2  Straight, to warn (of) a punishment severe, from near Him, and give glad tidings (to) the believers, those who do righteous deeds, that for them (is) a reward good
18:3  (They will) abide in it forever.
18:4  And to warn those who say, "Has taken Allah a son."
18:5  Not they have about it any knowledge and not their forefathers. Mighty (is) the word (that) comes out of their mouths. Not they say except a lie.
18:6  Then perhaps you would (be) the one who kills yourself over their footsteps, if not they believe in this [the] narration, (in) grief.
18:7  Indeed, We We have made what (is) on the earth adornment for it, that We may test [them] which of them (is) best (in) deed.
18:8  And indeed, We (will) surely make what (is) on it soil barren.
18:9  Or you think that (the) companions (of) the cave and the inscription were, among Our Signs, a wonder?
18:10  When retreated the youths to the cave, and they said, "Our Lord! Grant us from Yourself Mercy, and facilitate for us [from] our affair (in the) right way."
18:11  So We cast over their ears in the cave years - a number.
18:12  Then We raised them up that We make evident which (of) the two parties best calculated for what (they had) remained (in) time.
18:13  We narrate to you their story in truth. Indeed, they (were) youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them (in) guidance.
18:14  And We made firm [on] their hearts when they stood up and said, "Our Lord (is) the Lord (of) the heavens and the earth. Never we will invoke from besides Him any god. Certainly, we would have said, then, an enormity.
18:15  These, our people, have taken from besides Him gods. Why not they come to them with an authority clear? And who (is) more wrong than (one) who invents against Allah a lie?
18:16  And when you withdraw from them and what they worship except Allah, then retreat to the cave. Will spread for you your Lord of His Mercy and will facilitate for you [from] your affair (in) ease."
18:17  And you (might) have seen the sun, when it rose, inclining away from their cave to the right, and when it set, passing away from them to the left while they (lay) in the open space thereof. That (was) from (the) Signs (of) Allah. Whoever guides Allah and he (is) the guided one, and whoever He lets go astray then never you will find for him a protector, a guide.
18:18  And you (would) think them awake while they (were) asleep. And We turned them to the right and to the left, while their dog stretched his two forelegs at the entrance. If you had looked at them, you (would) have surely turned back from them (in) flight and surely you would have been filled by them (with) terror.
18:19  And similarly, We raised them that they might question among them. Said a speaker among them, "How long have you remained?" They said, "We have remained a day or a part (of) a day." They said, "Your Lord knows best how long you have remained. So send one of you with silver coin of yours this to the city, and let him see which is the purest food, and let him bring to you provision from it, and let him be cautious. And not make aware about you anyone."
18:20  "Indeed, [they] if they come to know about you, they will stone you or return you to their religion. And never will you succeed then - ever."
18:21  And similarly, We made known about them that they might know that (the) Promise (of) Allah (is) true, and that (about) the Hour (there is) no doubt in it. When they disputed among themselves about their affair and they said, "Construct over them a structure. Their Lord knows best about them." Said those who prevailed in their matter, "Surely we will take over them a place of worship."
18:22  They say, (they were) three, the forth of them their dog; and they say (they were) five the sixth of them their dog - guessing about the unseen; and they say, (they were) seven and the eight of them their dog. Say, "My Lord, knows best their number. None knows them except a few. So (do) not argue about them except (with) an argument obvious, and (do) not inquire about them among them (from) anyone."
18:23  And (do) not say of anything, "Indeed, I will do that tomorrow."
18:24  Except, "If wills Allah." And remember your Lord when you forget and say, "Perhaps [that] will guide me my Lord to a nearer (way) than this right way."
18:25  And they remained in their cave (for) three hundred years and add nine.
18:26  Say, "Allah knows best about what (period) they remained. For Him (is the) unseen (of) the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees! [of it] And how clearly He hears! Not for them from besides Him any protector, and not He shares [in] His Commands (with) anyone."
18:27  And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book (of) your Lord. None can change His Words and never you will find from besides Him a refuge.
18:28  And be patient, yourself, with those who call their Lord in the morning and the evening desiring His Face. And (let) not pass beyond your eyes over them, desiring adornment (of) the life (of) the world, and (do) not obey whom We have made heedless his heart of Our remembrance, and follows his desires and is his affair (in) excess.
18:29  And say, "The truth (is) from your Lord, so whoever wills - let him believe and whoever wills - let him disbelieve." Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a Fire, will surround them its walls. And if they call for relief, they will be relieved with water like molten brass, (which) scalds the faces. Wretched (is) the drink, and evil (is) the resting place.
18:30  Indeed, those who believed and did the good deeds, indeed, We not will let it go waste (the) reward (of one) who does good deeds.
18:31  Those, for them (are) Gardens of Eden, flows from underneath them the rivers. They will be adorned therein [of] (with) bracelets of gold and will wear garments, green, of fine silk and heavy brocade, reclining therein on adorned couches. Excellent (is) the reward, and good (is) the resting place.
18:32  And set forth to them the example of two men: We provided for one of them two gardens of grapes, and We bordered them with date-palms, and We placed between both of them crops.
18:33  Each (of) the two gardens brought forth its produce and not did wrong of it anything. And We caused to gush forth within them a river.
18:34  And was for him fruit, so he said to his companion while he (was) talking with him, "I am greater than you (in) wealth and stronger (in) men."
18:35  And he entered his garden while he (was) unjust to himself. He said, "Not I think that will perish this ever.
18:36  And not I think the Hour will occur. And if I am brought back to my Lord, I will surely find better than this (as) a return."
18:37  Said to him his companion while he was talking to him, "Do you disbelieve in One Who created you from dust then from a minute quantity of semen. then fashioned you (into) a man?
18:38  But as for me, He (is) Allah, my Lord, and not I associate with my Lord anyone.
18:39  And why (did you) not, when you entered your garden say, "What wills Allah; (there is) no power except with Allah." If you see me lesser than you (in) wealth and children,
18:40  It may be my Lord that will give me better than your garden and will send upon it a calamity from the sky, then it will become ground slippery,
18:41  Or will become, its water, sunken, so never you will be able it to find."
18:42  And were surrounded his fruits, so he began twisting his hands over what he (had) spent on it, while it (had) collapsed on its trellises, and he said, "Oh! I wish not had I associated with my Lord anyone."
18:43  And not was for him a group (to) help him from other than Allah, and not was (he) supported.
18:44  There, the protection (is) from Allah the True. He (is the) best (to) reward and (the) best (for) the final end.
18:45  And present to them the example (of) the life (of) the world, like water which We send down from the sky, then mingles with it (the) vegetation (of) the earth then becomes dry stalks, it (is) scattered (by) the winds. And Allah over every thing (is) All Able.
18:46  The wealth and children (are) adornment (of) the life (of) the world. But the enduring good deeds (are) better near your Lord (for) reward and better (for) hope.
18:47  And the Day We will cause (to) move the mountains and you will see the earth (as) a leveled plain and We will gather them and not We will leave behind from them anyone.
18:48  And they will be presented before your Lord (in) rows, "Certainly, you have come to Us as We created you the first time. Nay, you claimed that not We made for you an appointment."
18:49  And (will) be placed the Book and you will see the criminals fearful of what (is) in it, and they will say, "Oh, woe to us! What (is) for this [the] Book, not leaves a small and not a great except has enumerated it?" And they will find what they did presented. And not deals unjustly your Lord (with) anyone.
18:50  And when We said to the Angels, "Prostrate to Adam," so they prostrated except Iblis. (He) was of the jinn, and he rebelled against the Command (of) his Lord. Will you then take him and his offspring (as) protectors from other than Me, while they (are) to you enemies? Wretched for the wrongdoers (is) the exchange.
18:51  Not I made them witness the creation (of) the heavens and the earth and not the creation (of) themselves and not I Am the One to take the misleaders (as) helper(s).
18:52  And the Day He will say, "Call My partners, those who you claimed," then they will call them but not they will respond to them. And We will make between them a barrier.
18:53  And will see the criminals the Fire, and they (will be) certain that they are to fall in it. And not they will find from it a way of escape.
18:54  And certainly, We have explained in this the Quran for mankind of every example. But is the man (in) most things quarrelsome.
18:55  And nothing prevents men that they believe when has come to them the guidance and they ask forgiveness (of) their Lord, except that comes to them (the) way (of) the former (people) or comes to them the punishment before (them)?
18:56  And not We send the Messengers except (as) bearers of glad tidings and (as) warners. And dispute those who disbelieve with falsehood, to refute thereby the truth. And they take My Verses and what they are warned (in) ridicule.
18:57  And who (is) more wrong than (he) who is reminded of the Verses (of) his Lord, but turns away from them, and forgets what have sent forth his hands? Indeed, We [We] have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it and in their ears (is) deafness. And if you call them to the guidance, then never they will be guided then ever.
18:58  And your Lord (is) the Most Forgiving, Owner (of) the Mercy. If He were to seize them for what they have earned, surely, He (would) have hastened for them the punishment. But for them (is) an appointment, never they will find from other than it an escape.
18:59  And these [the] towns, We destroyed them when they wronged, and We made for their destruction an appointed time.
18:60  And when said Musa to his boy, "Not I will cease until I reach the junction (of) the two seas or I continue (for) a long period."
18:61  But when they reached the junction between them, they forgot their fish, and it took its way into the sea, slipping away.
18:62  Then when they had passed beyond he said to his boy, "Bring us our morning meal. Certainly we have suffered in our journey this, fatigue."
18:63  He said, "Did you see, when we retired to the rock? Then indeed, I [I] forgot the fish. And not made me forget it except the Shaitaan that I mention it. And it took its way into the sea amazingly."
18:64  He said, "That (is) what we were seeking." So they returned on their footprints, retracing.
18:65  Then they found a servant from Our servants, whom We had given mercy from Us, and We had taught him from Us a knowledge.
18:66  Said to him Musa, "May, I follow you on that you teach me of what you have been taught (of) right guidance?"
18:67  He said, "Indeed, you never will be able, with me, (to have) patience.
18:68  And how can you have patience for what not you encompass of it any knowledge."
18:69  He said, "You will find me, if wills Allah, patient, and not I will disobey your order."
18:70  He said, "Then if you follow me, (do) not ask me about anything until I present to you of it a mention."
18:71  So they both set out until when they had embarked on the ship he made a hole in it. He said, "Have you made a hole in it, to drown its people? Certainly, you have done a thing grave."
18:72  He said, "Did not I say, indeed, you never will be able with me (to have) patience?"
18:73  He said, "(Do) not, blame me for what I forgot and (do) not be hard (upon) me in my affair (raising) difficulty."
18:74  Then they both set out until when they met a boy, then he killed him. He said, "Have you killed a soul, pure, for other than a soul? Certainly, you have done a thing evil."
18:75  He said, "Did not I say to you that you, never will be able with me (to have) patience?"
18:76  He said, "If I ask you about anything after it, then (do) not keep me as a companion. Verily, you have reached from me (another) an excuse."
18:77  So they set out until when they came (to the) people (of) a town, they asked for food (from) its people, but they refused to offer them hospitality. Then they found in it a wall (that) want(ed) to collapse, so he set it straight. He said, "If you wished surely you (could) have taken for it a payment."
18:78  He said, "This (is) parting between me and between you. I will inform you of (the) interpretation (of) what not you were able on it (to have) patience.
18:79  As for the ship, it was of (the) poor people working in the sea. So I intended that I cause defect (in) it (as there) was after them a king who seized every ship (by) force.
18:80  And as for the boy were his parents believers, and we feared that he would overburden them (by) transgression and disbelief.
18:81  So we intended that would change for them their Lord, a better than him (in) purity and nearer (in) affection.
18:82  And as for the wall, it was for two boys orphan, in the town, and was underneath it a treasure for them and was their father righteous. So intended your Lord that they reach their maturity, and bring forth their treasure (as) a mercy from your Lord. And not I did it on my (own) accord. That (is the) interpretation (of) what not you were able on it (to have) patience."
18:83  And they ask you about Dhul (Possessor) Qarnain (two horns) Say, "I will recite to you about him a remembrance."
18:84  Indeed, We [We] established [for] him in the earth, and We gave him of every thing a means.
18:85  So he followed a course
18:86  Until, when he reached (the) setting place (of) the sun, he found it setting in a spring (of) dark mud, and he found near it a community. We said, "O Dhul-qarnain (Possessor of two horns)! Either [that] you punish or [that] you take [in] them (with) goodness."
18:87  He said, "As for (one) who wrongs, then soon we will punish him. Then he will be returned to his Lord, and He will punish him (with) a punishment terrible.
18:88  But as for (one) who believes and does righteous (deeds), then for him (is) a reward good. And we will speak to him from our command (with) ease."
18:89  Then he followed (a) course
18:90  Until, when he reached (the) rising place (of) the sun, and he found it rising on a community not We made for them from against it any shelter.
18:91  Thus. And verily, We encompassed of what (was) with him (of the) information.
18:92  Then he followed a course
18:93  Until, when he reached between the two mountains, he found from besides them a community, not who would almost understand (his) speech.
18:94  They said, "O Dhul-qarnain (Possessor of two horns)! Indeed, Yajuj and Majuj (are) corrupters in the land. So may we make for you an expenditure [on] that you make between us and between them a barrier?"
18:95  He said, "What has established me [in it] my Lord (is) better, but assist me with strength, I will make between you and between them a barrier.
18:96  Bring me sheets (of) iron" until, when he (had) leveled between the two cliffs, he said, "Blow," until when he made it fire, he said, "Bring me, I pour over it molten copper."
18:97  So not they were able to scale it and not they were able in it (to do) any penetration.
18:98  He said, "This (is) a mercy from my Lord. But when comes (the) Promise (of) my Lord, He will make it level. And is (the) Promise (of) my Lord true."
18:99  And We (will) leave some of them (on) that Day to surge over others, and (will be) blown in the trumpet, then We (will) gather them all together.
18:100  And We (will) present Hell (on) that Day to the disbelievers, (on) display
18:101  Those had been their eyes within a cover from My remembrance, and were not able (to) hear.
18:102  Do then think those who disbelieve that they (can) take My servants from besides Me (as) protectors? Indeed, We - We have prepared Hell for the disbelievers (as) a lodging.
18:103  Say, "Shall We inform you of the greatest losers (as to their) deeds?
18:104  Those - is lost their effort in the life (of) the world, while they think that they (were) acquiring good (in) work."
18:105  Those (are) the ones who disbelieve in the Verses (of) their Lord, and the meeting (with) Him. So (are) vain their deeds, so not We will assign for them (on) the Day (of) the Resurrection any weight.
18:106  That (is) their recompense - Hell - because they disbelieved, and took My Verses and My Messengers (in) ridicule.
18:107  Indeed, those who believed and did righteous deeds, will be for them Gardens (of) the Paradise (as) a lodging,
18:108  Abiding forever in it. Not they will desire from it any transfer.
18:109  Say, "If were the sea ink, for (the) Words (of) my Lord, surely (would be) exhausted the sea before [that] (were) exhausted (the) Words (of) my Lord, even if We brought (the) like (of) it (as) a supplement."
18:110  Say, "Only I (am) a man like you. Has been revealed to me that your God (is) God One. So whoever is hoping (for the) meeting (with) his Lord, let him do deeds righteous and not associate in (the) worship (of) his Lord anyone."
