Abdul Majid Daryabadi rendition of Surah The Poets(ash-Shu`ara`)
---
26:1 Ta. Sin Mim.
26:2 These are the verses of a Book luminous.
26:3 Belike thou shalt kill thyself with grief because they become not believers.
26:4 If We list, We can send down unto them a sign from the heaven so that their necks would became to it submissive.
26:5 And there cometh not unto them any fresh admonition from the Compassionate but they are wont to be there from backsliders.
26:6 So they have surely belied; wherefore anon there shall come unto them the truth of that whereat they were wont to mock.
26:7 Observe they not the earth, how much We make to grow therein of every fruitful kind?
26:8 Verily therein is a sign; yet most of them are not believers.
26:9 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:10 And recall what time thy Lord called unto Musa, saying: go thou unto the wrong-doing people.
26:11 The people of Fir'awn; fear they Me not?
26:12 He said: my Lord! verily I fear they shall belie me.
26:13 And my breast straiteneth, and my tongue moveth not quickly: so send for Harun.
26:14 And they have a crime against me, so I fear that they shall slay me.
26:15 He said: by no means. so go ye twain with Our signs; verily We shall be with you listening.
26:16 So go ye twain unto Fir'awn and say: verily we are the apostles of the Lord of the Worlds,
26:17 Send with us the Children of Isra'il?
26:18 Fir'awn said: brought we not thee up amongst us as a child? And thou tarriedst amongst us for many years of thy life?
26:19 And thou didst that thy deed which thou didst; and thou art of the ingrates.
26:20 He said: I did it then when I was mistaken.
26:21 Then I fled from you when I feared you, and my Lord bestowed on me wisdom and made me one of the sent ones.
26:22 And that favour wherewith thou didst oblige me was that thou hadst enslaved the Children of Isra'il?
26:23 Fir'awn said. and what is the Lord of the worlds?
26:24 He said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in-between, if ye seek to be convinced.
26:25 Fir'awn said unto those around him: hear ye not?
26:26 He said: your Lord and the Lord of your ancient fathers.
26:27 Fir'awn said: verily your apostle who hath been sent unto you is mad.
26:28 He said: Lord of the east and the west and whatsoever is in-between, if ye understand.
26:29 Fir'awn said: if thou wilt take a god other than me, I shall surely place thee among the prisoners.
26:30 He said: even though I bring unto thee something manifest?
26:31 Fir'awn said: forth with it then, if thou art of the truth- tellers.
26:32 Then he cast down his staff, and lo! it was a serpent manifest.
26:33 And he drew forth his hand, and lo! it was white unto the beholders.
26:34 Fir'awn said unto the chiefs around him: verily this is a magician knowing.
26:35 He would drive you out of your land through his magic; what then is it ye command?
26:36 They said: put off him and his brother, and send unto the cities callers.
26:37 Thot they may bring to thee every magician knowing.
26:38 So the magicians were assembled at a set time on a day made known.
26:39 And it was said unto the people: are ye going to assemble.
26:40 Belike we may follow the magicians if they are the winners?
26:41 Then when the magicians came, they said unto Fir'awn: will there surely be a big hire for us if we are the winners?
26:42 He said: yea; and ye shall verily then be of those brought nigh.
26:43 Musa said unto them: cast whatsoever ye have to cast.
26:44 Then they cast their cords and their staves, and said: by the might of Fir'awn, verily we! we shall be the winners.
26:45 Then Musa cast down his staff, and lo! it swallowed up that which they had devised.
26:46 Then the magicians flung themselves prostrate.
26:47 They said: we believe in the Lord of the worlds.
26:48 The Lord of Musa and Harun.
26:49 Fir'awn said: ye believed in him ere I gave you leave. Verily he is your chief who hath taught you magic, so ye shall surely come to know. Surely I shall cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides and surely I shall crucify you all.
26:50 They said: no harm! verily unto our Lord we are to return.
26:51 Verily we long that our Lord shall forgive us our faults because we have been the first of the believers
26:52 And We revealed unto Musa saying: go by night with My bondmen verily ye shall be pursued.
26:53 Then Fir'awn sent unto the cities callers:
26:54 Verily these are but a band small.
26:55 And verily they have enraged US.
26:56 And verily we are host well-provided.
26:57 Then We drave them forth from gardens and springs.
26:58 And treasures and a station noble.
26:59 Even so. And We caused the Children of Isra'il to inherit them.
26:60 Then they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 And when the two parties saw each other, the companions of Musa said: verily we are overtaken.
26:62 Musa said: by no means; verily with me is my Lord; He shall guide me.
26:63 Then We revealed unto Musa, saying: smite thou the sea with thy staff. So it became separated, and each part was like unto a cliff mighty.
26:64 And We brought near thither the others.
26:65 And We delivered Musa and those with him together.
26:66 Then We drowned the others.
26:67 Verily herein is a sign; but most of them are not believers.
26:68 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:69 And recite unto them the story of Ibrahim.
26:70 When he said unto his father and his people: what worship ye?
26:71 They said: we worship idols, and we are unto them ever devoted
26:72 He said: hearken they unto you when ye cry?
26:73 Or, benefit they you or hurt they you?
26:74 They said: nay; but we found our fathers doing in this wise.
26:75 He said: have ye observed that which ye worship
26:76 Ye and your fathers of old?
26:77 Verily they are an enemy unto me, save the Lord of the worlds.
26:78 Who hath created me, and He guideth me.
26:79 He Who feedeth me and giveth me to drink.
26:80 And when I sicken, then He healeth me.
26:81 And He Who shall cause me to die, and then shall quicken me.
26:82 And He Who, long, shall forgive me my faults, on the Day of Requital.
26:83 My Lord! bestow on me wisdom and join me with the righteous.
26:84 And appoint for me an honourable mention among the posterity
26:85 And make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Delight.
26:86 And forgive my father; verily he is of the erring.
26:87 And humiliate me not on the Day whereon people shall be raised.
26:88 The Day whereon will profit neither substance nor sons.
26:89 Unless it be he, who shall bring unto Allah a whole heart,
26:90 And the Garden shall be brought nigh to the God, fearing.
26:91 And the Fierce Fire shall be made apparent unto the seduced ones.
26:92 And it shall be said unto them where is that which ye were wont to worship?
26:93 Beside Allah? Can they succour you or succour themselves?
26:94 Then they shall be hurled therein, they and the seduced ones.
26:95 And the hosts of Iblis together.
26:96 And they, While contending therein, shall say:
26:97 By Allah, we have indeed been in an error manifest.
26:98 When we equalled you with the Lord of the worlds.
26:99 And none led us astray except the Culprits.
26:100 So none we have as intercessors.
26:101 Nor any loving friend.
26:102 Were there for us a return, we would be of the believers.
26:103 Verily herein is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:104 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:105 And Nuh's people belied the sent ones.
26:106 When their brother Nuh said Unto them: fear ye not?
26:107 Verily I am unto you an apostle trusted.
26:108 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:109 And I ask of you no hire therefor; my hire is but with the Lord of the worlds.
26:110 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:111 They said: shall We believe in thee when the meanest follow thee?
26:112 He said: I have no knowledge of that which they have been Working.
26:113 Their reckoning is upon my Lord, if ye but knew.
26:114 And I am not to drive away the believers.
26:115 I am naught but a warner manifest.
26:116 They said: if thou desistest not, thou shalt surely be of those stoned.
26:117 He said: my Lord! verily my people have belied me.
26:118 So decide Thou between me and them with a decision, and deliver me and those who are with me of the believers.
26:119 Wherefore We delivered him and those with him in the laden ark.
26:120 Then We drowned the rest thereafter.
26:121 Verily herein is a sign, yet most of them are not believers.
26:122 And thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:123 The'Aad belied the sent ones.
26:124 When their brother Hud said Unto them: fear ye not?
26:125 Verily I am unto you an apostle trusted.
26:126 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:127 And I ask of you no hire therefor: my hire is but with the Lord of the worlds.
26:128 Build ye on every eminence a landmark in vanity?
26:129 And take ye for yourselves castles that haply ye may abide.
26:130 And when ye seize, ye seize like unto tyrants.
26:131 So fear Allah, and obey me.
26:132 And fear Him Who hath aided you with that which ye know.
26:133 He hath aided you With Cattle and sons.
26:134 And gardens and springs.
26:135 Verily I fear for you the torment of a Mighty Day.
26:136 They said: it is equal unto us whether thou admonishest or art not of the admonishers.
26:137 This in but a custom of the ancients.
26:138 And we are not going to be tormented.
26:139 And they belied him; so We destroyed them. Verily herein is a sign, yet most of them are not believers.
26:140 And verily thy Lord? He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:141 The Thamud belied the sent ones
26:142 When their brother Salih said unto them: fear ye not?
26:143 Verily I am unto you an apostle trusted.
26:144 So fear Allah, and obey me.
26:145 And I ask of you no hire therefor; MY hire is but with the Lord of the worlds.
26:146 Shall ye be left secure in that which is here before us.
26:147 In gardens and springs.
26:148 And corn-fields and palm-trees whereof the spathes are fine?
26:149 And hew ye out houses in the mountains skilfully! g
26:150 So fear Allah, and obey me.
26:151 And obey not the command of the extravagant.
26:152 Who work corruption in the land and rectify not.
26:153 They said: thou art but one of the bewitched;
26:154 Thou art but a human being like unto us. So bring thou a sign if thou art of the truth-tellers.
26:155 He said: yonder is a she-camel; to her a drink, and to you a drink, each on a day known.
26:156 And touch her not with ill, lest there take hold of you the torment of a Mighty Day.
26:157 Then they hamstrung her; and then they became regretful.
26:158 So the torment took hold of them: verily herein is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:159 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:160 The people of Lut belied the sent ones.
26:161 When their brother Lut said unto them: fear ye not?
26:162 Verily I am unto you an apostle trusted.
26:163 So fear Allah, and obey me.
26:164 And I ask of you no hire there for; my hire is but with the Lord of the worlds.
26:165 Go ye in, of all creatures, unto the males?
26:166 And leave ye your spouses your Lord hath created for you? Aye! ye are a people trespassing.
26:167 They said: if thou desistest not, O Lut! thou shalt surely be of those driven forth.
26:168 He said: verily I am of those who abhor your work.
26:169 My Lord! deliver me and my household from that which they work.
26:170 So We delivered him and his household all.
26:171 Save an old woman among the lingerers.
26:172 Thereafter We annihilated the rest.
26:173 And We rained on them a rain. So ill was the rain on those warned?
26:174 Verily herein is a sign, yet most of them are not believers.
26:175 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:176 The dwellers of the wood belied the sent ones.
26:177 What time Shu'aib , said unto them: fear ye not?
26:178 Verily I am unto you an apostle trusted.
26:179 So fear Allah, and obey me.
26:180 And ask of you no hire therefor; and my hire is but with the Lord of the worlds.
26:181 Give full measure, and be not of those who cause others to lose.
26:182 And weigh with a balance straight.
26:183 And defraud not people of their things, and commit not corruption on the earth.
26:184 So fear Him Who created you and the former generations.
26:185 They said: thou art but of the bewitched;
26:186 And thou art but a human being like unto us, and we deem thee to be of the liars.
26:187 So cause thou a fragment of the heaven to fall upon us, if thou art of the truth-tellers.
26:188 He.said: My Lord is the Best Knower of that which ye work.
26:189 Thenn they belied him; wherefore there laid hold of -them the torment of day of shadow. Verily it was the torment of a Mighty Day.
26:190 Verily herein is a sign; but most of them are not believers.
26:191 And verily thy Lord! He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:192 And verily it is a revelation of the Lord of the worlds.
26:193 The Trusted spirit hath brought it down.
26:194 Upon thy heart, that thou mayest be of the warners,
26:195 In plain Arabic speech.
26:196 And verily it is in the Scriptures of the ancients.
26:197 Is it not a sign unto them that the learned among the Children of Isra'il know it?
26:198 And had We revealed it unto any of the ncn-Arabs,
26:199 And he had-read it unto them, even then they would not have been believers therein.
26:200 In this wise have We made way for it into the hearts of the culprits.
26:201 They will not believe therein until they behold the torment afflictive.
26:202 It shall come unto them on a sudden, and they shall not perceive.
26:203 Then they will say: are we to be respited?
26:204 Seek haste then they with our torment?
26:205 Beholdest thou? - if We let them enjoy for years.
26:206 And then there cometh unto them that which they had been promised.
26:207 What shall that which they enjoyed avail them?
26:208 And We destroyed not a city but it had its warners.
26:209 By way of admonition, and We have never been oppressors.
26:210 And the satans have not brought it down.
26:211 It behoveth them not, nor they can.
26:212 Verily far from hearing are they removed.
26:213 So call not thou unto anot her god along with Allah, lest thou be of the doomed.
26:214 And warn thou thy clan, the nearest ones.
26:215 And lower thou thy Wlng Unto those who follow thee as believers.
26:216 And if they disobey thee, say thou: verily I am quit of that which ye work.
26:217 And rely thou upon the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:218 Who seeth thee when thou standest up
26:219 And thy movements among those who fall prostrate.
26:220 Verily He! He is the Hearer, the Knower.
26:221 Shall declare unto you upon whom the satans descend!
26:222 They descend upon every calumniator, sinner.
26:223 Who give ear, and most of them are liars.
26:224 As for the poets -it is the seduced who follow them.
26:225 Observest thou not, that they Wander about every vale.
26:226 And that they say that which they do not?
26:227 Save those who believed and worked righteous works and remembered Allah much, and vindicated themselves after they had been wronged. And anon those who do wrong shall come to know with what a translating they shall be translated.
