23:1  Successful indeed are the believers
23:2  Who are humble in their prayers
23:3  And those who keep aloof from (what is) vain
23:4  And those who are active in giving the poor due (zakat)
23:5  And those who guard their private parts
23:6  Save from their wives or the (slaves) that their right hands possess, for then verily they are not blameworthy
23:7  But whoso craves beyond that, such are transgressors
23:8  And those who are keepers of their trusts and their covenant
23:9  And those who take care of their prayers
23:10  These, they are the heirs
23:11  Those who will inherit the Paradise: Therein they will abide
23:12  And certainly We created man from an extract of clay
23:13  Then We placed him (as a drop of) sperm in a safe lodging
23:14  Then We created of the sperm a clot, then We made the clot a lump of flesh, then We made the lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh; thereafter We produced it as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of the creators
23:15  Then verily after that you shall die
23:16  Then verily on the Day of Resurrection you will beraised, (again)
23:17  And We have created above you seven paths, and We are never unmindful of (Our) creation
23:18  And We sent down water from the sky in measure, and We lodged it in the earth, and verily We are able to take it awa
23:19  Then We produced for you therewith gardens of date palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you and whereof you eat
23:20  And a tree springing out of Mount Sinai, which produces oil and seasoning for those who eat
23:21  And verily there is a lesson for you in the cattle. We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies, and you have many benefits in them, and of them you eat
23:22  And on them, and on the ships, advantages you are carried
23:23  And indeed We sent Noah unto his folk, and he said: �O� my people! Worship Allah. You have no other god save Him. Will you not keep from evil?�
23:24  But the chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: 'This is nothing but a mortal like you who intends to gain superiority over you. And if Allah had pleased (to send any prophet), He surely could have sent down angels. We have not heard of this (invitation) among our ancestors of old'
23:25  He is just a man in whom is a madness, so bear with him for a while
23:26  He (Noah) said: 'My Lord! help me against what they Belie'
23:27  Then We revealed unto him: 'Build the Ark before Our eyes and (according to) Our revelation. Then, when Our command comes and the oven gushes (water), take into it a pair of every kind (of animal) and (also) your family, except those of them against whom the word has already gone forth. And plead not with Me on behalf of those who are unjust, for verily they shall be drowned
23:28  And when you, and those with you, are settled on the Ark, say: 'all praise belongs to Allah Who has delivered us from the unjust people!'
23:29  And say: 'My Lord! Cause me to land with a blessed landing, for You are the Best to cause to land'
23:30  Verily in this there are signs; and indeed We put (men) to test
23:31  Then, after them, We produced another generation
23:32  And We sent among them a messenger from among themselves (saying): 'Worship Allah. You have no other god besides Him. Will you not keep from evil?'
23:33  The chiefs of his people, who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the Hereafter, and whom We had given affluence in the life of the world, (said): �This is nothing but a mortal like you, he eats of what you eat from and drinks of what you drink.�
23:34  And if you obey a mortal like yourselves, verily then you will be losers
23:35  Does he promise you that when you are dead and have become dust and bones, you will indeed be raised (from the dead)
23:36  Far, very far is what you are promised
23:37  There is nothing but our life in this world: we die and we live, and we shall not be raised agai
23:38  He is naught but a man who has forged a lie about Allah, and we will not believe him
23:39  (Their prophet) said: 'My Lord! Help me against what they belie!'
23:40  (Allah) said: 'In a little while they will be remorseful'
23:41  Then the Blast overtook them with justice, and We made them into a scum. So away with the unjust people
23:42  Then after them We brought forth other generations
23:43  No nation may outstrip its term, nor do they postpone (it)
23:44  Then We sent Our messengers one after another. Whenever there came unto a people their messenger, they belied him, so We caused some of them to follow others (in disaster) and We made them stories. So away with a people that do not believe
23:45  Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a manifest authority
23:46  Unto Pharaoh and his chiefs, but they behaved insolently and they were an arrogant people
23:47  And they said: 'Shall we believe in two humans like ourselves while their people are our slaves?
23:48  So they belied both of them and became of those who were destroyed
23:49  And certainly We gave Moses the Book, that they may be rightly guided
23:50  And We made the son of Mary and his mother a Sign, and We sheltered them upon a height quiet, secure and watered by a stream
23:51  O messengers! Eat of the good things and act righteously. Verily I know best what you do
23:52  And verily this Ummah of yours is a single Ummah, and I am your Lord, so fear Me
23:53  But people have cut off their affair (of unity) between them, into sects: each party rejoicing in that which is with them
23:54  But leave them in their overwhelming ignorance for a time
23:55  Do they think that what We aid them with wealth and children
23:56  We are hasting unto them of good things? Nay, they do not perceive
23:57  Verily those, who from fear of their Lord are cautious
23:58  And those who believe in the Signs of their Lord
23:59  And those who do not associate (aught) with their Lord
23:60  And those who give what they give (in charity) while their hearts are full of fear that they must (finally) return unto their Lord
23:61  These (are they who) hasten in good things and they are the foremost to (attain) them
23:62  And We do not task a soul but to the extent of its ability, and with Us is Record which clearly speaks the truth, and they will not be dealt with unjustly
23:63  But their hearts are in overwhelming ignorance of this (Record), and they have, besides that, other deeds which they are doing
23:64  Until, when We seize the luxurious ones of them with punishment, behold, they groan
23:65  (It will be said to them:) 'Groan not this day! Surely you will not be helped by Us
23:66  In deed My Signs used to be rehearsed to you, but you used to turn back on your heels
23:67  In arrogance: talking nonsense about it (the Qur'an), discoursing foolishly by night
23:68  Have they not pondered over the statement (of the Qur'an), or has anything come to them that did not come to their fathers of old
23:69  Or do they not recognize their Messenger, that they reject him
23:70  Or do they say: 'There is a madness in him'? Rather he has brought them the Truth, but most of them hate the Truth
23:71  And if the Truth had followed their low desires, certainly the heavens and the earth, and whoever therein would have perished! Rather, We have sent them their Reminder (the Qur'an), but they turn away from their Reminder
23:72  Or is it that you ask them a recompense? But the recompense of your Lord is the best: He is the Best of the sustainers
23:73  And verily you call them unto the Straight Way
23:74  And verily those who do not believe in the Hereafter are deviating from the Way
23:75  If We had mercy on them and removed the distress which is on them, they would obstinately persist in their transgression, blindly wandering on
23:76  And indeed We inflicted chastisement on them, but they were not submissive unto their Lord, nor do they humble themselves
23:77  Until, when We open against them a gate of severe chastisement, behold! They will get into despair at it
23:78  He it is Who produced for you hearing, and eyes, and hearts (minds);(very) little it is what you give thanks
23:79  And He it is Who multiplied you in the earth, and unto Him you shall be mustered
23:80  And He it is Who gives life and death, and to Him belongs the alternation of the night and the day. Have you then no sense
23:81  Nay, but they say the like of what the ancients said
23:82  They say: 'What! When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then be raised up again
23:83  Certainly we and our fathers have been promised this aforetime; this is naught but fables of the ancient
23:84  Say: 'Whose is the earth and whosoever is in it, if you have knowledge?
23:85  They will say: 'Allah's'. Say: 'Will you not then remember?
23:86  Say: 'Who is the Lord of the Seven Heavens, and the Lord of the Mighty Throne?
23:87  They will say: 'Allah's'. Say: 'Will you not then keep from evil?
23:88  Say: 'In Whose hand is the dominion of all things, and Who protects (all), but is never protected, if you have knowledge?
23:89  They will say: '(It belongs) to Allah.' Say: 'How then are you bewitched?
23:90  Nay, We have brought them the Truth, and verily they are liars
23:91  No son has Allah begot, nor is there any god along with Him, else each god would have certainly taken off that which he had created, and some of them would certainly have risen up over others. Glorified be Allah above what they describe
23:92  (He is) the Knower of the Unseen and the Visible! So exalted be He, above what they ascribe as partners (unto Him)
23:93  Say: �My Lord! If You show me what (chastisement) they are promised,
23:94  My Lord! Then set me, not among the unjust people
23:95  And verily We are able to show you that which We promise them
23:96  Repel evil with that which is best. We know best what they describe
23:97  And say: 'My Lord! I seek refuge in You from the suggestions of Satans
23:98  And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they attend me'
23:99  Until, when death conies unto one of them, he says: 'My Lord! Send me back again
23:100  That I might do righteousness in that which I have left behind!' Nay! It is but a(mere) word that he says; and, behind them, is a partition until the Day when they shall be raised up
23:101  And when the Trumpet is blown there will be no relationship between them that day, nor will they ask of one another
23:102  Then whoever' s scale be heavy, those are they who shall be prosperous
23:103  And whoever's scale be light, those are they who have ruined their souls, in Hell will they abide
23:104  The Fire will burn their faces, and they are glum therein (with the.ir lips displaced)
23:105  (They will be told:) Were not My Signs recited to you, then you used to belie them
23:106  They will say: 'Our Lord! Our adversity conquered us, and we were a people gone astray
23:107  Our Lord! bring us forth out of it! Then if we return (to evil) then verily we shall be unjust
23:108  He will say: 'Be you driven into it, and speak not to Me
23:109  Verily there was a party among My servants who used to say: 'Our Lord! We believe, therefore forgive us and have mercy on us for You are the Best of the mercifulness
23:110  But you took them with ridicule, until they made you forget My remembrance and you were laughing at them
23:111  Verily I have recompensed them this day for they were patient and steadfast, (that) they are indeed the triumphant
23:112  He will say: 'How many years did you tarry in the earth?
23:113  They will say: 'We tarried but a day or part of a day; but ask those who keep account'
23:114  He will say: 'You tarried but a little if you had only known'
23:115  What! Do you then think that We created you aimlessly and that you shall not be returned to Us
23:116  Therefore, high exalted is Allah, the King of the Truth! There is no god but He, the Lord of 'Arsh (the Throne) of Grace
23:117  And whoever invokes with Allah another god, he has no proof there of; therefore his reckoning is only with his Lord. Verily, the disbelievers will not prosper
23:118  And (O Muhammad) say: 'My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, (for) You are the best of the merciful ones'
