Shakir rendition of Surah The Poets(ash-Shu`ara`)
---
26:1 Ta Sin Mim.
26:2 These are the verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.
26:3 Perhaps you will kill yourself with grief because they do not believe.
26:4 If We please, We should send down upon them a sign from the heaven so that their necks should stoop to it.
26:5 And there does not come to them a new reminder from the Beneficent Allah but they turn aside from it.
26:6 So they have indeed rejected (the truth), therefore the news of that which they mock shall soon come to them.
26:7 Do they not see the earth, how many of every noble kind We have caused to grow in it?
26:8 Most surely there is a sign in that, but most of them will not believe.
26:9 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:10 And when your Lord called out to Musa, saying: Go to the unjust people,
26:11 The people of Firon: Will they not guard (against evil)?
26:12 He said: O my Lord! surely I fear that they will reject me;
26:13 And by breast straitens, and my tongue is not eloquent, therefore send Thou to Haroun (to help me);
26:14 And they have a crime against me, therefore I fear that they may slay me.
26:15 He said: By no means, so go you both with Our signs; surely We are with you, hearing;
26:16 Then come to Firon and say: Surely we are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds:
26:17 Then send with us the children of Israel.
26:18 (Firon) said: Did we not bring you up as a child among us, and you tarried among us for (many) years of your life?
26:19 And you did (that) deed of yours which you did, and you are one of the ungrateful.
26:20 He said: I did it then while I was of those unable to see the right course;
26:21 So I fled from you when I feared you, then my Lord granted me wisdom and made me of the messengers;
26:22 And is it a favor of which you remind me that you have enslaved the children of Israel?
26:23 Firon said: And what is the Lord of the worlds?
26:24 He said: The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you would be sure.
26:25 (Firon) said to those around him: Do you not hear?
26:26 He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old.
26:27 Said he: Most surely your Messenger who is sent to you is mad.
26:28 He said: The Lord of the east and the west and what is between them, if you understand.
26:29 Said he: If you will take a god besides me, I will most certainly make you one of the imprisoned.
26:30 He said: What! even if I bring to you something manifest?
26:31 Said he: Bring it then, if you are of the truthful ones.
26:32 So he cast down his rod, and lo! it was an obvious serpent,
26:33 And he drew forth his hand, and lo! it appeared white to the onlookers.
26:34 (Firon) said to the chiefs around him: Most surely this is a skillful magician,
26:35 Who desires to turn you out of your land with his magic; what is it then that you advise?
26:36 They said: Give him and his brother respite and send heralds into the cities
26:37 That they should bring to you every skillful magician.
26:38 So the magicians were gathered together at the appointed time on the fixed day,
26:39 And it was said to the people: Will you gather together?
26:40 Haply we may follow the magicians, if they are the vanquishers.
26:41 And when the magicians came, they said to Firon: Shall we get a reward if we are the vanquishers?
26:42 He said: Yes, and surely you will then be of those who are made near.
26:43 Musa said to them: Cast what you are going to cast.
26:44 So they cast down their cords and their rods and said: By Firon's power, we shall most surely be victorious.
26:45 Then Musa cast down his staff and lo! it swallowed up the lies they told.
26:46 And the magicians were thrown down prostrate;
26:47 They said: We believe in the Lord of the worlds:
26:48 The Lord of Musa and Haroun.
26:49 Said he: You believe in him before I give you permission; most surely he is the chief of you who taught you the magic, so you shall know: certainly I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and certainly I will crucify you all.
26:50 They said: No harm; surely to our Lord we go back;
26:51 Surely we hope that our Lord will forgive us our wrongs because we are the first of the believers.
26:52 And We revealed to Musa, saying: Go away with My servants travelling by night, surely you will be pursued.
26:53 So Firon sent heralds into the cities;
26:54 Most surely these are a small company;
26:55 And most surely they have enraged us;
26:56 And most surely we are a vigilant multitude.
26:57 So We turned them out of gardens and springs,
26:58 And treasures and goodly dwellings,
26:59 Even so. And We gave them as a heritage to the children of Israel.
26:60 Then they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 So when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Musa cried out: Most surely we are being overtaken.
26:62 He said: By no means; surely my Lord is with me: He will show me a way out.
26:63 Then We revealed to Musa: Strike the sea with your staff. So it had cloven asunder, and each part was like a huge mound.
26:64 And We brought near, there, the others.
26:65 And We saved Musa and those with him, all of them.
26:66 Then We drowned the others.
26:67 Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:68 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:69 And recite to them the story of Ibrahim.
26:70 When he said to his father and his people: What do you worship?
26:71 They said: We worship idols, so we shall be their votaries.
26:72 He said: Do they hear you when you call?
26:73 Or do they profit you or cause you harm?
26:74 They said: Nay, we found our fathers doing so.
26:75 He said: Have you then considered what you have been worshipping:
26:76 You and your ancient sires.
26:77 Surely they are enemies to me, but not (so) the Lord of the worlds;
26:78 Who created me, then He has shown me the way:
26:79 And He Who gives me to eat and gives me to drink:
26:80 And when I am sick, then He restores me to health
26:81 And He Who will cause me to die, then give me life;
26:82 And Who, I hope, will forgive me my mistakes on the day of judgment.
26:83 My Lord: Grant me wisdom, and join me with the good
26:84 And ordain for me a goodly mention among posterity
26:85 And make me of the heirs of the garden of bliss
26:86 And forgive my father, for surely he is of those who have gone astray;
26:87 And disgrace me not on the day when they are raised
26:88 The day on which property will not avail, nor sons
26:89 Except him who comes to Allah with a heart free (from evil).
26:90 And the garden shall be brought near for those who guard (against evil),
26:91 And the hell shall be made manifest to the erring ones,
26:92 And it shall be said to them: Where are those that you used to worship;
26:93 Besides Allah? Can they help you or yet help themselves?
26:94 So they shall be thrown down into it, they and the erring ones,
26:95 And the hosts of the Shaitan, all.
26:96 They shall say while they contend therein:
26:97 By Allah! we were certainly in manifest error,
26:98 When we made you equal to the Lord of the worlds;
26:99 And none but the guilty led us astray;
26:100 So we have no intercessors,
26:101 Nor a true friend;
26:102 But if we could but once return, we would be of the believers.
26:103 Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:104 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:105 The people of Nuh rejected the messengers.
26:106 When their brother Nuh said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?
26:107 Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;
26:108 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me
26:109 And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds:
26:110 So guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me.
26:111 They said: Shall we believe in you while the meanest follow you?
26:112 He said: And what knowledge have I of what they do?
26:113 Their account is only with my Lord, if you could perceive
26:114 And I am not going to drive away the believers;
26:115 I am naught but a plain warner.
26:116 They said: If you desist not, O Nuh, you shall most certainly be of those stoned to death.
26:117 He said: My Lord! Surely my people give me the lie!
26:118 Therefore judge Thou between me and them with a (just) judgment, and deliver me and those who are with me of the believers.
26:119 So We delivered him and those with him in the laden ark.
26:120 Then We drowned the rest afterwards
26:121 Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:122 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:123 Ad gave the lie to the messengers.
26:124 When their brother Hud said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?
26:125 Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;
26:126 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:
26:127 And I do not ask you any reward for it; surely my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds
26:128 Do you build on every height a monument? Vain is it that you do:
26:129 And you make strong fortresses that perhaps you may
26:130 And when you lay hands (on men) you lay hands (like) tyrants;
26:131 So guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me
26:132 And be careful of (your duty to) Him Who has given you abundance of what you know.
26:133 He has given you abundance of cattle and children
26:134 And gardens and fountains;
26:135 Surely I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous day
26:136 They said: It is the same to us whether you admonish or are not one of the admonishers
26:137 This is naught but a custom of the ancients;
26:138 And we are not going to be punished.
26:139 So they gave him the lie, then We destroyed them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:140 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:141 Samood gave the lie to the messengers
26:142 When their brother Salih said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?
26:143 Surely I am a faithful messenger to you
26:144 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:
26:145 And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds:
26:146 Will you be left secure in what is here;
26:147 In gardens and fountains,
26:148 And cornfields and palm-trees having fine spadices?
26:149 And you hew houses out of the mountains exultingly;
26:150 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me;
26:151 And do not obey the bidding of the extravagant,
26:152 Who make mischief in the land and do not act aright.
26:153 They said: You are only of the deluded ones;
26:154 You are naught but a mortal like ourselves; so bring a sign if you are one of the truthful.
26:155 He said: This is a she-camel; she shall have her portion of water, and you have your portion of water on an appointed time;
26:156 And do not touch her with evil, lest the punishment of a grievous day should overtake you.
26:157 But they hamstrung her, then regretted;
26:158 So the punishment overtook them. Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:159 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:160 The people of Lut gave the lie to the messengers.
26:161 When their brother Lut said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?
26:162 Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;
26:163 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:
26:164 And I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds;
26:165 What! do you come to the males from among the creatures
26:166 And leave what your Lord has created for you of your wives? Nay, you are a people exceeding limits.
26:167 They said: If you desist not, O Lut! you shall surely be of those who are expelled.
26:168 He said: Surely I am of those who utterly abhor your
26:169 My Lord! deliver me and my followers from what they do.
26:170 So We delivered him and his followers all,
26:171 Except an old woman, among those who remained behind.
26:172 Then We utterly destroyed the others.
26:173 And We rained down upon them a rain, and evil was the rain on those warned.
26:174 Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:175 And most surely your Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:176 The dwellers of the thicket gave the lie to the messengers.
26:177 When Shu'aib said to them: Will you not guard (against evil)?
26:178 Surely I am a faithful messenger to you;
26:179 Therefore guard against (the punishment of) Allah and obey me:
26:180 And I do not ask you any reward for it, my reward is only with the Lord of the worlds;
26:181 Give a full measure and be not of those who diminish;
26:182 And weigh (things) with a right balance,
26:183 And do not wrong men of their things, and do not act corruptly in the earth, making mischief.
26:184 And guard against (the punishment of) Him who created you and the former nations.
26:185 They said: You are only of those deluded;
26:186 And you are naught but a mortal like ourselves, and we know you to be certainly of the liars.
26:187 Therefore cause a portion of the heaven to come down upon us, if you are one of the truthful.
26:188 He said: My Lord knows best what you do.
26:189 But they called him a liar, so the punishment of the day of covering overtook them; surely it was the punishment of a grievous day.
26:190 Most surely there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:191 And most surely your Lord is Mighty, the Merciful.
26:192 And most surely this is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
26:193 The Faithful Spirit has descended with it,
26:194 Upon your heart that you may be of the warners
26:195 In plain Arabic language.
26:196 And most surely the same is in the scriptures of the ancients.
26:197 Is it not a sign to them that the learned men of the Israelites know it?
26:198 And if we had revealed it to any of the foreigners
26:199 So that he should have recited it to them, they would not have believed therein.
26:200 Thus have We caused it to enter into the hearts of the guilty.
26:201 They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment.
26:202 And it shall come to them all of a sudden, while they shall not perceive;
26:203 Then they will say: Shall we be respited?
26:204 What! do they still seek to hasten on Our punishment?
26:205 Have you then considered if We let them enjoy themselves for years,
26:206 Then there comes to them that with which they are threatened,
26:207 That which they were made to enjoy shall not avail them?
26:208 And We did not destroy any town but it had (its) warners,
26:209 To remind, and We are never unjust.
26:210 And the Shaitans have not come down with it.
26:211 And it behoves them not, and they have not the power to do (it).
26:212 Most surely they are far removed from the hearing of it.
26:213 So call not upon another god with Allah, lest you be of those who are punished.
26:214 And warn your nearest relations,
26:215 And be kind to him who follows you of the believers.
26:216 But if they disobey you, then say: Surely I am clear of what you do.
26:217 And rely on the Mighty, the Merciful,
26:218 Who sees you when you stand up.
26:219 And your turning over and over among those who prostrate themselves before Allah.
26:220 Surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
26:221 Shall I inform you (of him) upon whom the Shaitans descend?
26:222 They descend upon every lying, sinful one,
26:223 They incline their ears, and most of them are liars.
26:224 And as to the poets, those who go astray follow them.
26:225 Do you not see that they wander about bewildered in every valley?
26:226 And that they say that which they do not do,
26:227 Except those who believe and do good and remember Allah much, and defend themselves after they are oppressed; and they who act unjustly shall know to what final place of turning they shall turn back.
