21:1  There hath approached unto mankind their reckoning, while they in neglect are turning away
21:2  There cometh not unto them a fresh admonition from their Lord but they listen to it while they are playing
21:3  In sport being their hearts. And those who do wrong keep secret their private discourse this is but a human being like unto yourselves; will ye then betake yourselves to magic while ye know
21:4  The Prophet said: my Lord knoweth the word in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Hearer, the Knower
21:5  Aye! they say: a medley of dreams; aye! he hath fabricated it; aye! he is a poet; so let him bring us a sign even as the ancients were sent with
21:6  Not a city before them which We destroyed believed; will they then believe
21:7  And We sent not before thee but men unto whom We revealed; so ask the people of the Admonition if ye know not
21:8  And We made them not bodies not eating food; nor were they to be abiders
21:9  Then We made good unto them the premise; so We delivered them and those whom We willed, and We destroyed the extravagant
21:10  And assuredly We have sent down unto you a Book wherein is admonition for you; will ye not then reflect
21:11  And how many a city have We overthrown which were doing wrong, and We caused to grow up thereafter anot her nation
21:12  Then when they perceived Our violence, lo! they were from it fleeing
21:13  Flee not, and return unto that wherein ye luxuriated and your habitations, haply ye will be questioned
21:14  They said: woe unto us! verily we have been wrong-doers
21:15  And this ceased not to be their cry until We made them a harvestreaped, extinguished
21:16  And We created not the heaven and the earth and that which is in between in play
21:17  Had We intended that We should choose a sport, surely We would choose it from before Us--if We were ever going to do that
21:18  Aye! We hurl truth against false hood, so that it braineth it, and lo! it vanisheth; and to you be the woe for that which ye utter
21:19  And His is whosoever is in the heavens and the earth; and those nigh unto Him are not too stiff-necked for His worship nor are they weary
21:20  And they hallow Him night and day, and they flag not
21:21  Have they taken gods from the earth who raise the deed
21:22  Had there been in between the twain gods except Allah surely the twain would have gone to ruin. Hallowed be Allah, the Lord of the Throne, from that which they utter
21:23  He shall be questioned not as to that which He doth, while they shall be questioned
21:24  Have they taken gods beside Him? Say thou: forth with your proof This is an admonition unto those with me and an admonition unto those before me. But most of them knew not the truth, and so they are averters
21:25  And We sent not before thee an apostle but We revealed unto him that there is no god but I, so worship Me
21:26  And they say; the Compaionate hath taken a son. Hallowed be He! aye! they are bondmen honoured
21:27  They precede Him not in words, and by His command they work
21:28  He knoweth whatsoever is before them and whatsoever is behind them; and they intercede not except for him whom He approveth, and in awe of Him they are fearful
21:29  And whosoever of them should say: verily I am a god beside Him, such a one We shall requite with Hell; Thus We requite the wrong- doers
21:30  Have not these who disbelieve considered that the heavens and the earth were closed up, then We rent them? And We have made of water everything living; will they not then believe
21:31  And We have placed in the earth firm mountains lest it should move away with them, and We placed therein Passages for paths, that haply they may be guided
21:32  And We have made the heaven a roof, safe, and from the signs there of they are averters
21:33  And He it is Who hath created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, each in an orb floating
21:34  And We appointed not for any human being before thee immortality; if thou then diest, are they to be immortals
21:35  Every soul is going to taste of death, and We shall prove you with evil and good as a temptation; and unto Us ye shall be returned
21:36  And when those who disbelieve behold thee they only take thee up for mockery: is this he who mentioneth your gods? while in the mention of the compassionate they are themselves blasphemers
21:37  Man was created of hast, surely I shall show you MY signs, so ask Me not to hasten
21:38  And they say: when cometh this torment if ye are truth- tellers
21:39  If only those who disbelieve have known of the time when they shall not be able to ward off from their faces the Fire nor from their backs, nor shall they be succoured
21:40  Aye! it would come upon them on a sudden and shall dumbfound them; they shall not be able to avert it, nor shall they be respited
21:41  And assuredly mocked were the apostles before thee, then there surrounded those of them Who scoffed that whereat they had been mocking
21:42  Say thou: who guardeth you by night and by day from the Compassionate! O Yet from the remembrance of their Lord they avert themselves
21:43  Have they gods who defend them beside Us? They are not able to succour themselves, and against Us they cannot be kept company with
21:44  Aye! We let these people and their fathers enjoy until there grew long upon them the life. Behold they not that We come unto the land diminishing it by the borders thereof? Shall they then be the victors
21:45  Say thou: I only warn you by the revelation; and the deaf hearken not unto the call when they are warned
21:46  And if a breath of the torment of thy Lord were to touch them, they will say: woe unto us! we have been wrong-doers
21:47  And We shall set balances of justice for the Day of Judgment; then no soul shall be wronged at all; and if it be but the weight of a grain of mustard-seed We shall bring it; and We suffice as Reckoners
21:48  And assuredly We vcuchsafed unto Musa and Harun the distinction and illumination and an admonition for the God-fearing
21:49  These who fear their Lord unseen, and who are of the Hour fearful
21:50  And this is an admonition blest, which We have sent down! will ye then be the rejectors thereof
21:51  And assuredly We vouchsafed un to lbrahim his rectitude aforetime, and him We had ever known
21:52  Recall what time he said unto his father and his people what are these images to which ye are cleaving
21:53  They said: we found our fathers the worshippers thereof
21:54  He said: assuredlY ye, ye and your fathers, have been in error manifest
21:55  They said: hast thou come unto us with the truth, or art thou of those who sport
21:56  He said: Aye! your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth Who created them, and as to that I am of the witnesses
21:57  And by Allah I shall surely devise a plot against your idols after ye turned away backward
21:58  Then he made them fragments, all except the big one of them, that haply unto it they may return
21:59  They said: who hath wrought this to our gods? verily he is of the wrong-doers
21:60  They said: We heard a youth speak of them, who is called Ibrahim
21:61  They said: bring him then before the eyes of the people, haply they may bear witness
21:62  They said: art thou the one who hath wrought this unto our gods, O Ibrahim
21:63  He said: rather he hath wrought it: this big one of them: so question them, if they ever speak
21:64  They then turned to themselves, and said: verily ye it is who are the wrong-doers
21:65  Thereafter they were made to turn over upon their heads, saying, assuredly thou knowest that they speak not
21:66  He said: worship ye, then, beside Allah, that which profiteth you not at all, nor it hurteth yo
21:67  Fie upon you and upon that which ye worship beside Allah! Will ye not then reflect
21:68  They said: burn him, and succour your gods, if ye will be doing
21:69  We said: O fire! be thou cool and peace unto Ibrahi
21:70  And they intended to do him an evil, but We made them the worst losers
21:71  And We delivered him and Lut to the land wherein We had placed Our blessings for the worlds
21:72  And We bestowed upon him ls-haq and Ya qub as a grandson; and each one We made righteous
21:73  And We made them leaders, guiding by Our command; and We revealed unto them the doing of good deeds and the establishment of prayer, and the giving of poor-rate; and of Us they were the worshippers
21:74  And Lut! We vouchsafed unto him judgment and knowledge, and We delivered him out of the city which had been working foul deeds; verily they were a people evil, wicked
21:75  And We caused him to enter into Our mercy; verily he was of the righteous
21:76  And Nuh! recall what time he cried aforetime; so we answered him and delivered him and his house hold from a calamity mighty
21:77  And We succoured him against the people who belied Our signs; verily they were a people evil, so we drowned them all
21:78  And Daud and Sulaiman! recall what time they gave judgment regarding the tillage when certain people's sheep had pastured therein at night; and of the judgment concerning them We were the Witnesses
21:79  So We gave the understanding thereof unto Sulaiman; and unto each We vouchsafed judgment and knowledge. And We so subjected the mountains that they shall hallow us along with Daud, and also the birds; and We were the doers
21:80  And We taught him the art of making the coats of mail for you that it may protect you from your violence; are ye then thankful
21:81  And unto Sulaiman We subjected the wind, strongly raging, running at his command toward the land wherein We had placed Our blessing; and of evrything We are the knowers
21:82  And of the satans were some who dove for him, and worked a work beside that; and of them We were the Watchers
21:83  And Ayyub! recall what time he cried unto his Lord: verily hurt hath touched me, and Thou art the Most Merciful of the mercifuls
21:84  So We answered him and We removed that which was with him of the hurt, and We vouchsafed unto him his household and the like thereof along with them, as a mercy from us and a remembrance unto the worshippers
21:85  And Isma'il and ldris and Zul-Kifl! each were of the patient
21:86  And We caused them to enter into our mercy, verily they are of the righteous
21:87  And Zun-nun! recall what time he departed in anger and imagined that We could not straiten him, then he cried in the darknesses, that: there is no god but Thou! hallowed be Thou! verily I have been of the wrong-doers
21:88  So We answered him, and We delivered him from the distress, and Thus do We deliver the believers
21:89  And Zakariyya! recall what time he cried unto his Lord: my Lord! leave me not solitary, though Thou art the best of heirs
21:90  So We answered him, and We bestowed on him Yahya and We made sound for him his spouse. Verily they Were wont to vie with one anot her in good deeds and to call upon us with longing and dread, and they were ever before us meek
21:91  And she who guarded her chastity! Then We breathed into her of Our spirit, and made her and her son a sign unto the worlds
21:92  Verily this community of yours is a single community, and I am your Lord; so worship Me
21:93  And they cut up their affair among them: , all are unto Us returners
21:94  Whosoever worketh righteous works, and he is a believer, there shall be no denial of his endeavour; and We are for him the Writers
21:95  And a ban is laid on every town which We have destroyed, that they Shall not return
21:96  Until when Ya'juj and Ma'juj are let out, and from every mound they are trickling down
21:97  And there shall approach the true promise; and lo! the eyes of those who disbelieved shall be staring: woe unto us! surely we have been in neglect thereof; aye! we have been the wrong-doers
21:98  Verily ye and whatsoever ye worship beside Allah shall be firewood for Hell: thereunto ye shall go down
21:99  Had these been gods, they would not have gone down thereunto; and all of them therein shall be abiders
21:100  Theirs therein shall be roaring, and therein they shall hear not
21:101  Verily those for whom the good reward hath preceded from Us, they therefrom shall be kept far away
21:102  They shall not hear the least sound thereof, and in that felicity which their souls desire they shall be abiders
21:103  The Great Terror shall grieve them not, and the angels will meet them: this is Your Day which ye were ever promised
21:104  The Day whereon We shall roll up the heaven like as the rolling up of a scroll for books. Even as We began the first creation, We shall restore it: a promise binding upon Us; verily We have been the Doers
21:105  And assuredly We have prescribed in the Scripture after the admonition, that: the land! there shall inherit it My bondmen righteous
21:106  Verily in this in a preaching for a people who are worshippers
21:107  And We have not sent thee except as a mercy unto the Worlds
21:108  Say thou: this only hath been revealed unto me, that your god is only One God. submit ye then?
21:109  Then if they turn away, say thou: I have proclaimed unto you all alike, and I know not whether nigh or far is that which ye are promised
21:110  Verily He knoweth that which is public in speech, and He knoweth that which ye hide
21:111  And know not; haply it may be a trial for you, and an enjoyment for a season
21:112  He saith: my Lord! judge Thou with truth. And our Lord is the Compassionate Whose help is to be sought against that which ye utter
