23:1  The believers are indeed successful
23:2  Those who are humble in their contact-method
23:3  And they abstain from vain talk
23:4  And they are active towards betterment
23:5  And they cover their private parts
23:6  Except around their mates, or those who are their dependants, they are free from blame
23:7  But whosoever seeks anything beyond this, then these are the transgressors
23:8  And those who are true to what they have been entrusted and their pledges
23:9  And those who maintain the contact-methods
23:10  These are the inheritors
23:11  The ones who shall inherit Paradise, in it they will abide
23:12  We have created mankind from a structure derived from mud
23:13  Then We made him a seed in a safe lodging
23:14  Then We created the seed into an embryo, then We created the embryo into a fetus, then We created the fetus into bone, then We covered the bone with flesh, then We brought forth a new creation. So glory be to God, the best of creators
23:15  Then after that, you will die
23:16  Then you will be resurrected on the Day of Resurrection
23:17  And We have created above you seven passageways, and We were never unaware of the creations
23:18  And We sent down from the sky water in due measure, then We let it reside in the land, and We are capable of taking it away
23:19  So We brought forth for you gardens of palm trees and grapes, for which you will find many fruits and from it you will eat
23:20  And a tree which emerges from the mount of Sinai, it grows oil and is a relish for those who eat
23:21  And in the livestock are lessons for you. We give you to drink from what is in its bellies, and you have many other benefits from them, and of them you eat
23:22  And on them and on the ships you are carried
23:23  And We have sent Noah to his people, so he said: "O my people, serve God, you have no other god besides Him. Will you not take heed"
23:24  But the leaders who rejected from among his people said: "What is this but a human like you He wants to make himself better than you! And if it was indeed God's will, He would have sent down Angels. We did not hear such a thing among our fathers of old."
23:25  "He is no more than a man who has madness in him. So keep watch on him for a while."
23:26  He said: "My Lord, grant me victory for what they denied me."
23:27  So We inspired him: "Construct the Ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration. Then, when Our command comes and the volcano erupts, then you shall take on the Ship two from every pair and your family, except for those of them upon whom the word has come. And do not address Me regarding those who have done wrong, for they will be drowned."
23:28  So when you and those who are with you have embarked on the ship, then Say: "All praise is due to God who has saved us from the wicked people."
23:29  And Say: "My Lord, cause me to embark upon a blessed place, for You are the best for those who embark."
23:30  In this are signs, and We will always test
23:31  Then We raised after them a different generation
23:32  So We sent a messenger to them from amongst them: "Serve God, you have no other god besides Him. Will you not take heed"
23:33  And the leaders from amongst his people who rejected and denied the meeting of the Hereafter; and We indulged them in this worldly life; said: "What is this but a human like you He eats from what you eat and he drinks from what you drink."
23:34  "And if you obey a human like you, then you will indeed be losers."
23:35  "Does he promise you that if you die and become dust and bones that you will be brought out"
23:36  "Far fetched is what you are being promised."
23:37  "There is nothing but our worldly life, we die and we live, and we will not be resurrected."
23:38  "He is but a man who has invented a lie against God, and we will not believe in him."
23:39  He said: "My Lord, grant me victory for what they denied me."
23:40  He replied: "In a little while they will be in regret."
23:41  So the scream took them with justice, and We made them as dead plants. So away with the wicked people
23:42  Then We raised after them different generations
23:43  No nation can hasten its appointed time, nor can it delay
23:44  Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation their messenger, they denied him. So We made them follow one another, and We made them history. So away with a people who do not believe
23:45  Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority
23:46  To Pharaoh and his leaders. But they became arrogant, for they were a high and mighty people
23:47  So they said: "Shall we believe to two humans like us, while their people are servants to us"
23:48  So they denied them, and they became of those who were destroyed
23:49  And We have given Moses the Scripture, so that they may be guided
23:50  And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign, and We gave them refuge on high ground, a place for resting and with a flowing stream
23:51  "O messengers, eat from what is good, and do righteous work. I am aware of what you do."
23:52  "And this is your nation, one nation, and I am your Lord so be aware."
23:53  But the affair was disputed between them into segments. Every group happy with what it had
23:54  So leave them in their error until a time
23:55  Do they not think why We are extending them with wealth and childre
23:56  We are quick to give them the good things. But they do not perceive
23:57  As for those who are in reverence from the awareness of their Lord
23:58  And they believe in the revelations of their Lord
23:59  And they do not set up anything with their Lord
23:60  And they give of what they were given, and their hearts are full of reverence that they will return to their Lord
23:61  These are the ones who race in doing good, and they are the first to it
23:62  And We do not burden a soul except with what it can bare. And We have a record that speaks with the truth, they will not be wronged
23:63  No, their hearts are unaware of this! And they have deeds besides this which they are doing
23:64  Until We take their carefree people with the retribution, then they will shout for help
23:65  Do not shout for help today, for you will not be helped against Us
23:66  My revelations were recited to you, but you used to turn back on your heels
23:67  You were too proud from it, talking evil about it; and you defiantly disregarded it
23:68  Did they not ponder the words, or has what come to them not come to their fathers of ol
23:69  Or did they not know their messenger For they are in denial of him
23:70  Or do they say that there is a madness in him No, he has come to them with the truth, but most of them are hateful of the truth
23:71  And if the truth were to follow their desires, then the heavens and the Earth and all who are in them would have been corrupted. No, We have come to them with their reminder, but from their reminder they are turning away
23:72  Or do you ask them for a wage The wage of your Lord is best, and He is the best of providers
23:73  And you are inviting them to a Straight Path
23:74  And those who do not believe in the Hereafter, they are deviating away from the path
23:75  And if We were to have mercy on them and remove what distress was upon them, they would still return to persist in their transgression, wandering blindly
23:76  And when We seized them with the punishment, they did not humble themselves to their Lord nor did they invoke Him
23:77  Until We open for them a door of immense retribution, then they become in sorrow and despair
23:78  And He is the One who established for you the hearing, and the sight, and the hearts. Little do you give thanks
23:79  And He is the One who multiplied you on the Earth, and to Him you will be returned
23:80  And He is the One who gives life and brings death, and to Him is the alteration of the night and the day. Do you not comprehen
23:81  No, they have said the same as what the people of old had said
23:82  They said: "If we are dead and become dust and bones, will we then be resurrected"
23:83  "We, as well as our fathers, have been promised this from before. This is nothing but the tales of the ancients."
23:84  Say: "To whom is the Earth and whosoever is in it if you know"
23:85  They will Say: "To God" Say: "Will you then not remember!"
23:86  Say: "Who is the Lord of the seven universes and the Lord of the great throne"
23:87  They will Say: "To God." Say: "Will you then not take heed"
23:88  Say: "In whose hand is the sovereignty of all things, and He protects while there is no protector against Him, if you know"
23:89  They will Say: "To God." Say: "Then why are you deceived"
23:90  No, We have come to them with the truth, and they are truly liars
23:91  God has not taken a son, nor is there with Him any god. If it were so, then every god would have taken what He created and they would have tried to overtake each other. God be glorified against what they describe
23:92  The knower of the unseen and the seen. Be He exalted above what they set up
23:93  Say: "My Lord, if You show me what they are promised."
23:94  "My Lord, then do not leave me amongst the wicked people."
23:95  And We are able to show you what We promise them
23:96  Push away evil with that which is better. We are better aware of what they describe
23:97  And Say: "My Lord, I seek refuge with you from the whispers of the devils."
23:98  "And I seek refuge with you O Lord that they should come near."
23:99  Until death comes to one of them, he says: "My Lord, send me back."
23:100  "So that I may do good in that which I have left behind." No, it is but a word he is speaking. And there is a barrier to prevent them from going back until the Day they are all resurrected
23:101  So when the horn is blown, then there will be no kinship between them on that Day, nor will they ask for one another
23:102  So, those whose weight is heavy on the scales, then those are the successful ones
23:103  And those whose weight is light on the scales, those are the ones who lost their souls, in Hell they will abide
23:104  The Fire will scorch their faces, and in it their grin will be with displaced lips
23:105  "Were My revelations not recited to you, then you denied them"
23:106  They said: "Our Lord, our wickedness overcame us, and we were a misguided people."
23:107  "Our Lord, bring us out of it, and if we return to this then we are wicked."
23:108  He said: "Be humiliated therein and do not speak to Me."
23:109  There was a group from among My servants who used to Say: "Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us, and have mercy upon us, for You are the best of those who show mercy."
23:110  But you mocked them, so much so that they made you forget My remembrance, and you used to laugh at them
23:111  I have rewarded them today for their patience, they are indeed the winners
23:112  Say: "How long have you stayed on Earth in terms of years"
23:113  They said: "We remained for a day, or for part of a day. So ask those who kept count."
23:114  He said: "You have remained for very little, if you knew."
23:115  "Did you think that We have created you without purpose, and that you would not return to Us"
23:116  So, exalted is God, the true King, there is no god but He, the Lord of the supreme throne
23:117  And whosoever calls on another god with God when he has no proof for such, then his judgment is with his Lord. The rejecters will never succeed
23:118  And Say: "My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and you are the best of those who are merciful."
