23:1  Indeed, prosperous are the believers
23:2  Those who - they are humble in their prayer,
23:3  And those who - they turn away from idle speech,
23:4  And those who - they are doers of the almsgiving.
23:5  And those who - they are guardians of their private parts -
23:6  Except from their spouses or what their right hands possess. Then indeed, they are not to be blamed; -
23:7  But whoever seeks beyond that, then those, they are the transgressors -
23:8  And those who - they are observers of their trusts and their promise,
23:9  And those who - they guard over their prayers.
23:10  Those - they are the inheritors
23:11  Those who will inherit Al Firdaus; they shall dwell therein.
23:12  And indeed, We created man from an extract of clay;
23:13  Then We placed him as a sperm in an established resting place;
23:14  Then We created the sperm a clot, then We created the clot a lump, then We created the lump bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, then We produced it another creation; So blessed is God, the best of creators.
23:15  Then indeed, after that you surely die;
23:16  Then indeed, on the Day of Resurrection you shall be raised.
23:17  And indeed, We created above you seven roads; and We are not heedless of the creation.
23:18  And We send down from the heaven water by measure, and We make it rest in the earth; and indeed, We are surely able to take it away.
23:19  And We produce for you thereby gardens of palms and grapes wherein are many fruits for you, and from which you eat.
23:20  And a tree growing out of Mount Sinai which produces oil, and a condiment for those who eat.
23:21  And indeed, in the cattle there is surely a lesson for you; We give you to drink of what is in their bellies; and you have therein many advantages, and of them you eat,
23:22  And on them and on the ships you are carried.
23:23  And certainly We sent Noah to his people, and he said, 'O my people! Worship God, you have no god other than Him; will you then not fear?'
23:24  But the chiefs of those who disbelieved among his people said, 'This is not except a mortal like you, he wishes to gain superiority over you, and had God willed surely He would have sent angels; we have not heard of this amongst our fathers, the former people.
23:25  He is not except a man possessed; so wait with him until a time.'
23:26  He said, 'My Lord! Help me because they call me liar.'
23:27  So We inspired to him, 'Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration; then when Our command comes and the oven boils over, then conduct into it two of every pair, and your family, except those against whom the word has passed; and do not address Me for those who do wrong, indeed, they are to be drowned.
23:28  And when you are settled, you and those with you in the ship, then say, "Praise be to God, who saved us from the unjust people."
23:29  And say, "My Lord! Make me alight in a blessed alighting-place, for you are the best of those who cause to alight."'
23:30  Indeed, in that surely are signs, and indeed, We are surely testing.
23:31  Then We raised up after them another generation;
23:32  And We sent amongst them a messenger of themselves, 'Serve God, you have no god other than He; will you then not fear?'
23:33  And the chiefs of his people who disbelieved and called the meeting of the hereafter a lie, and to whom We gave enjoyment in the worldly life said, 'This is not except a mortal like you, he eats of what you eat and drinks of what you drink.
23:34  And surely if you obey a mortal like you, indeed, you will then surely be losers.
23:35  Does he promise you that when you are dead, and have become dust and bones, that you will be brought forth?
23:36  Away, away with what you are promised, -
23:37  There is nothing but our life of the world. We die and we live, and we shall not be raised.
23:38  He is not except a man who forges against God a lie. And we will not believe him.'
23:39  He said, 'My Lord! Help me, because they call me liar.'
23:40  He said, 'Within a little they will surely, definitely awake repenting.'
23:41  And the noise seized them in truth; and We made them as rubbish borne by a torrent; so away with the unjust people.
23:42  Then We raised after them other generations.
23:43  No nation can anticipate its time, nor can they delay.
23:44  Then We sent Our messengers one after another. Whenever its messenger came to a nation they called him a liar, so we made some of them to follow others; and We made them stories; 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 chiefs, but they were proud, and were a haughty people.
23:47  And they said, 'Shall we believe two mortals like ourselves, and their people are servants of ours?'
23:48  So they called them liars, and were of those destroyed.
23:49  And certainly We gave Moses the Book, that perhaps they might be guided.
23:50  And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign; and We lodged them both on a high place, furnished with security and a spring.
23:51  O messengers! Eat of the good things and do right; indeed, what you do I know.
23:52  And indeed, this nation of yours is one nation, and I am your Lord; so fear Me.
23:53  And they cut their affair between them into books, each party rejoicing in what is with them.
23:54  So leave them in their flood until a time.
23:55  Do they think that what We extend to them of wealth and children,
23:56  We hasten to them in good? - nay, they do not perceive.
23:57  Indeed, those who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord,
23:58  And those who believe in the signs of their Lord,
23:59  And those who with their Lord join none,
23:60  And those who give what they give while their hearts are afraid that they unto their Lord will return, -
23:61  These hasten in good deeds and they are foremost in them.
23:62  And We will not task a soul except its capacity; and with Us is a book that speaks the truth, and they shall not be wronged.
23:63  Nay, their hearts are in a flood at this, and they have works beside that which they do
23:64  Until when We seize the affluent ones amongst them with the punishment; behold, they cry for help.
23:65  Do not cry for help today, indeed, from Us you will not be helped.
23:66  Certainly My signs were recited to you, but you used to turn back on your heels,
23:67  Big with pride at it, in vain discourse by night.
23:68  Have they not pondered the word, or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers?
23:69  Or do they not know their messenger, so they deny him?
23:70  Or do they say, 'In him is madness?' Nay, he came to them with the truth, and most of them are averse to the truth.
23:71  And if the truth had followed their desires, surely the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them would have been corrupted. - Nay, We brought them their reminder, but they from their reminder turn aside.
23:72  Or do you ask them for a tribute? But the tribute of your Lord is better, and He is the best of those who provide.
23:73  And indeed, you certainly call them to a straight path;
23:74  And indeed, those who do not believe in the hereafter surely are deviating from the path.
23:75  And if We had mercy on them, and removed what was upon them of the distress, surely they would persist in their immoderation, blindly wandering.
23:76  And indeed We seized them with the punishment, but they did not abase themselves to their Lord, nor did they humble themselves;
23:77  Until when We opened for them a door with severe punishment, behold, they are in despair.
23:78  And He is the one who produced for you hearing, and sight, and minds, - little is what you thank.
23:79  And He is the one who scattered you in the earth, and to Him you shall be gathered.
23:80  And He is the one who gives life and causes death; and His is the alternation of the night and the day; Have you then no sense?
23:81  Nay, they say like what the former people said.
23:82  They said, 'When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we surely be raised up?
23:83  Surely, certainly we have been promised this, we and our forefathers, before; - this is not except legends of the former people.'
23:84  Say, 'Whose is the earth and whoever is in it, if you know?'
23:85  Soon they will say, 'God's.' Say, 'Then will you not remember?'
23:86  Say, 'Who is the Lord of the seven heavens, and the Lord of the great throne?'
23:87  Soon they will say, 'God's.' Say, 'Will you not then fear?'
23:88  Say, 'In whose hand is the kingdom of everything; and He protects and none is protected against Him, - if you know?'
23:89  Soon they will say, 'God's.' Say, 'Then how are you bewitched?'
23:90  Nay, We have brought them the truth, but indeed, they surely are liars.
23:91  God has not taken any son, nor is there any god with Him; - then each god surely would have taken away what he created, and some of them surely would have risen up over others, - Glory be to God above what they attribute.
23:92  Knower of the unseen and the seen, exalted is He above what they associate.
23:93  Say, 'My Lord! If you should show me what they are threatened with, -
23:94  My Lord! Then do not place me among the unjust people.'
23:95  And indeed, We are surely able to show you what We threaten them with.
23:96  Repel evil by what is better. We know best of what they attribute.
23:97  And say, 'My Lord! I seek refuge with You from the incitings of the devils;
23:98  And I seek refuge with You, my Lord! Lest they be present with me.'
23:99  Until when death comes to one of them, he says, 'My Lord, send me back,
23:100  That I may do right in what I left behind.' Nay, indeed, it is a word he speaks; and behind them is a barrier until the day they are raised.
23:101  And when the horn is blown in, and there shall be no relationship between them on that day, nor shall they question one another.
23:102  And he whose scales are heavy, then those - they are the prosperous.
23:103  But he whose scales are light, - then those are the ones who have lost their souls, in Hell, to dwell forever.
23:104  The fire shall scorch their faces, and they shall grin with displaced lips in it.
23:105  Were My signs not recited to you, and you used to deny them?
23:106  They say, 'Our Lord! Our misery overcame us, and we were a people astray.
23:107  Our Lord! Take us out from it, and if we return, then indeed, we shall be wrongdoers.'
23:108  He will say, 'Go away into it and do not speak to Me.
23:109  Indeed, there was a party of my servants who said, "Our Lord! We believe, so forgive us, and have mercy on us, and you are the best of the merciful ones."
23:110  And you took them for a laughing-stock until they made you forget my remembrance, and you used to laugh at them.
23:111  Indeed, I have recompensed them this day because they were patient; indeed they, they are the successful.'
23:112  He will say, 'How long did you tarry in the earth, by number of years?'
23:113  They will say, 'We tarried a day or part of a day, but ask those who keep count.'
23:114  He will say, 'You tarried not except a little, did you know.
23:115  Did you then think that We created you for sport, and that you would not be returned to Us?'
23:116  So exalted be God, the King, the True. There is no god but He, the Lord of the noble throne.
23:117  And whoever calls upon another god with God has no proof of it, but his account is only with his Lord; indeed, the disbelievers shall not prosper.
23:118  And say, 'My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful ones.'
