23:1  Successful! Indeed must be the believers
23:2  Those who make themselves humble in their prayer
23:3  And those who avoid useless talk
23:4  And those who are give (the due) charity
23:5  And those who guard their chastity, (And their private parts from immoral acts of sex)
23:6  Except with those united to them by the bond of marriage, or (those) whom their right hands possess— For them, they are free from blame
23:7  But those whose desires are beyond such limits— (They) are the transgressors—
23:8  Those who truly keep their trusts and their promises
23:9  And who (strictly ensure and) guard their prayers—
23:10  These are indeed, the heirs
23:11  Who will inherit the Paradise: They will live in there forever
23:12  And indeed, We created man from purest (of the clay)
23:13  Then We placed him like (a drop of) semen firmly fixed, in a place of (its) rest
23:14  Then We made the semen into a mass of half-solidified blood; Then from that mass We made an (early embryonic baby-like) lump: Then We made from the lump bones and covered the bones with flesh; Then We developed from it another creature, so blessed be Allah, the Best to create
23:15  After that, at length, surely you will die
23:16  Then again, surely, on the Day of Judgment, you will be raised up
23:17  And above you, We have made seven heavens; And We are never unmindful of (Our) Creation
23:18  And We send down water from the sky in (proper) quantity, and We make it sink (deep) in the soil; And truly We are able to drain it off
23:19  Then with it (the water) We grow gardens of date—palms and vines for you; In them you have plenty of fruits; And from them you eat (and you rejoice)—
23:20  And also a tree that grows from Mount Sinai, which produces oil and relish for those who use it for food
23:21  And truly, (also) in cattle you have an example to learn from: From inside their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink: (In addition), from them there are many (other) benefits for you: And you eat from their (meat)
23:22  And on them, as in ships, you ride
23:23  (For your guidance, We sent many prophets). And indeed, We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people: (To them) he said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no god except Him. Then will you not fear (Him)?"
23:24  The leaders of the disbelievers from his people said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves; His wish is to make his superiority over you: If Allah had wished, He could have sent down angels: We never heard any such thing (like he says), from our forefathers of the old."
23:25  (And some said): "He is only a man in madness: So wait (and be patient) with him for a while."
23:26  He (Nuh) said: "O my Lord! Help me; Because they deny me (and blame me of lying!)"
23:27  So, We revealed to him (this command): "Build the Ark within Our view and under Our guidance: Then when Our command comes (true), and the fountains of the earth open up, you take (into the Ark) pairs of every species, male and female, and your family— Except those of them against whom the word has already gone out: And do not ask Me for favor to the wrongdoers; Surely, they will be drowned (in the flood)
23:28  "And when you have climbed onto the Ark— You and those with you— Then say: ‘All the Praises (and thanks) be to Allah, Who has saved us from the people who do wrong.’
23:29  "And say: ‘O my Lord! Cause me to land (the Ark) at a blessed place for landing: Because You are the best of those to bring (us back) to land.’ "
23:30  Surely, in this, there are Signs (from Us for men to understand: And so) do We try (them)
23:31  Then, We raised after them another generation
23:32  And We sent to them a messenger from among themselves, (saying). "Worship Allah! You have no god except Him. Then will you not fear (Him)?"
23:33  And the leaders of his people, who disbelieved and denied the meeting in the Hereafter, and to whom We had granted the good things of this life, said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves: He eats from that of which you eat, and drinks from what you drink
23:34  "If you obey a man like yourselves, then verily it is certain that you will be lost
23:35  "Does he promise you that when you die and become dust and bones, you will be brought up (again)
23:36  "Far, very far is that which you are promised
23:37  "There is nothing except our life in this world! We shall die and (now) we live! And we shall never be raised up again
23:38  "He is only a man who makes up a lie against Allah, but we are not the ones to believe in him!"
23:39  (The prophet) said: "O my Lord! Help me; Because they deny me (and blame me of lying)."
23:40  (Allah) said: "In only a little while, they are sure to be sorry!"
23:41  Then the blast (an awful cry) came to them with justice, and We made them like rubbish of dead leaves so, away with the wrongdoers
23:42  Then, after them, We raised other generations
23:43  No nation can quicken its term, nor can it delay (it)
23:44  Then We sent Our messengers one after another: Every time there came to a people their messenger, they denied him (and blamed him of lying): So, We made them follow each other (with punishment): And We made them like a tale (that is told): So away with the a people who will not believe
23:45  Then We sent Musa (Moses) and his brother Haroon (Aaron), with Our Signs and clear authority
23:46  To Firon (Pharaoh) and his chiefs: But these acted with insolence and disrespect: And they were an arrogant people
23:47  They said: "Shall we believe in two men like ourselves? And their people are obedient to us in humility!"
23:48  So they denied them both (and accused them of lying), and they became of those who were destroyed
23:49  And indeed, We gave Musa (Moses) the Book (Torah), that they might receive guidance
23:50  And We made (Isa or Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary) and his mother like a Sign: And We gave them both protection on high ground, offering rest and security and gave them springs (for water)
23:51  O you messengers (of Allah)! Eat (all) the good and the pure things, and carry out righteousness: Verily, I am Well Acquainted with what (ever) you do
23:52  And surely, this Religion (brotherhood of Islam) of yours is One single Religion (Islam), and I am your Lord and Cherisher: Therefore fear Me (Allah, Alone)
23:53  But people have broken their feelings (for Unity), between them, into (different) groups: Each group rejoices in what is with itself
23:54  So, leave them in their error (unclear and uninformed condition) for a while
23:55  Do they think that because We have granted them plenty of wealth and sons
23:56  We would quicken every good (thing) upon them? No! They do not understand
23:57  Surely those who live in reverence for the fear of their Lord
23:58  And those who believe in the Signs of their Lord
23:59  And those who do not join partners with their Lord
23:60  And those who give out their charity with their hearts full of fear, because they will return to their Lord—
23:61  It is these who are quick in every good work, and these who are first among them (who are good)
23:62  And We place not a burden upon anyone except according to the capacity of the person: And with Us is a record clearly showing the truth: And they will never be wronged
23:63  But (for some) their hearts are unclear and uninformed about this; And therein lie their (evil) actions, which they will (continue) to do—
23:64  Till (that time), when We grip in Punishment those of them who received the good things of this world, behold! They will groan (in pain and) in hurt
23:65  (It will be said ): "Do not groan in (pain and) hurt today; Certainly, you will not be helped by Us
23:66  "Indeed, My (Allah’s) Signs used to be recited to you, but you used to go back (running) on your heels—
23:67  "In defiance, (while) talking nonsense about (the Quran), like someone is saying (false) stories by night."
23:68  Do they not think deeply over the Word (of Allah), or has anything (new) come to them (now) that did not already come to their fathers of old
23:69  Or do they not recognize their Messenger (Muhammad) that they reject him
23:70  Or do they say: "Is there madness (deep) in him?" No! He has brought them the truth, but most of them hate the truth
23:71  And if the truth was according to their desires, surely, the heavens and the earth, and all the beings in there will be in confusion and ruin! No! We have sent them their reminder (and guidance), but they turn away from their warning
23:72  Or is it that you ask them for wages or reward? But the repayment of your Lord is best: He is the Best of those who give livelihood (Khair-ur-Razikeen)
23:73  But surely you call them to the Straight Way
23:74  And certainly, those who do not believe in the Hereafter are wandering away from that Path (Seerath)
23:75  And even though We had mercy on them and removed the difficulty that is on them, still they would stubbornly continue to exceed their limits, wandering here and there being diverted
23:76  And indeed, We seized them with Punishment, still they did not humble themselves to their Lord, and they do not humbly receive (Him)
23:77  Till We open on them a gate of a harsh Punishment: Then listen! They will be drowned in pain (and sorrow) in there
23:78  It is He Who has made for you (the faculties of) hearing, sight, feeling and understanding: (Yet) it is that you give little thanks
23:79  And He has spread you throughout the earth, and you will be gathered back to Him
23:80  And it is He Who gives life and causes death, and to Him (is due) the exchange (alternation) of night and day: Then will you not understand
23:81  To the opposite (effect), they say things similar to what the olden (people) said
23:82  They said: "What! When we die and become dust and bones, can we really be raised up again
23:83  "Verily, such things have been promised to us and our fathers before! This is nothing but the stories of the ancient!"
23:84  Say: "To whom belong the earth and all beings in there? (Answer) if you know!"
23:85  They will say: "To Allah!" Say: "Yet will you not take warning (and guidance)?"
23:86  Say: "Who is the Lord of the seven heavens, and the Lord of the Throne Supreme (Rab-ul-Arsh-ul-Azeem)?"
23:87  They will say: "(They belong) to Allah." Say: "Then will you not be filled with fear (and respect)?"
23:88  Say: "Who is it in whose hands is the sovereignty (and order) of all things— Who protects (all), but is not protected: (Answer) if you know."
23:89  They will say: "(It belongs) to Allah." Say: "How, then are you deceived away from truth?"
23:90  We have sent them the truth: And verily, they practice lies
23:91  Allah fathered no son, and there is not any god alongside with Him: (If there were many gods), then, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some (of them) would have lorded it over the others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him
23:92  He knows what is hidden and what is open: Very high above is He for the partners they attribute to Him
23:93  Say: "O my Lord! If You will (ever) show me that, with which they are threatened (as the Hellfire)—
23:94  "Then, O my Lord! Do not put me amongst the people who do wrong!"
23:95  And surely, We are able to show you that, with which We have threatened them
23:96  Put off evil with that which is best: We are very familiar with the things they say
23:97  And say: "O my Lord! I seek protection with You from the whisperings of the Satans'
23:98  "And I seek protection with You O my Lord! In case they should come near me."
23:99  (In lies will they be) till death comes to one of them, he says: "O my Lord! Send me back (again to life)—
23:100  "So that I may work rightfully the things that I neglected." — "By no means! It is only a word that he says." — Before them is a partition till the Day they are raised up
23:101  Then, when the Trumpet is blown, there will be no relations between them that day, and they will not ask after another
23:102  Then, those whose balance (of good deeds) is heavy— These, they will be successful
23:103  And those whose balance (of good) is light, will be those who have lost their souls; They will live in Hell
23:104  The Fire will burn their faces, and therein they will smile (in ugliness) with their lips displaced
23:105  "Were My Signs not recited to you, and you only treated them as lies?"
23:106  They will say: "O Lord! Our bad luck overtook us, and we became a people who had lost our way
23:107  "Our Lord! Bring us out from this: If we ever return (to evil), then truly we shall be wrongdoers!"
23:108  He (Allah) will say: "Remain you in it! (With worst shame)— And you do not speak to M
23:109  "Verily, there was a party of My servants who used to Pray, ‘Our Lord! We believe; Then You do forgive us, and have mercy upon us: For You are the Best of those who show mercy (Khair-ur-Rahameen)!’
23:110  "But you made fun of them to the extent that (it) made you forget My Message while you were laughing at them
23:111  "Verily, I (Allah) have gifted them this Day for their patience and constancy: Really, they are the ones who are successful."
23:112  He will say: "How many years did you stay on earth?"
23:113  They will say: "We stayed a day or part of a day: But ask those who keep account."
23:114  He will say: "You stayed only for a little (while)— If you had only known
23:115  "Then did you think that We had created you for a joke, and that you will not be brought back to Us?"
23:116  So, Allah be Exalted, the King (Malik) of Truth (Haqq): There is no god except He, the Lord of the Throne of Mercy (Rab-ul-Arsh-ul-Kareem)
23:117  And if anyone calls besides Allah, any other god when he has no authority for it; And his accounting will be only with his Lord! And surely the disbelievers will not win through
23:118  And say: "O my Lord! You grant forgiveness and mercy! Because You are the Best of those who show mercy (Khair-ur-Rahimeen)!"
