26:1  T. S. M. (Ta. Sin. Mim.)
26:2  These are verses of the clear (and clarifying) book.
26:3  You may kill yourself with grief because they do not become believers.
26:4  If We want, We send down a sign to them from the sky so their necks bend in humility before it.
26:5  Whenever a new reminder comes to them from the beneficent, they turn away from it.
26:6  They have denied, so the news of what they used to ridicule is going to come to them.
26:7  Or have they not looked at the earth (to see) how many of every kind of splendid plants We grew in it?
26:8  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:9  And indeed your Lord, He is the powerful and the merciful.
26:10  And (remember) when your Lord called Moses: “Go to the wrongdoing people,
26:11  people of Pharaoh, (and ask) why are you not cautious (of God)?”
26:12  He said: “My Lord, I am afraid that they deny me,
26:13  and my chest tightens (or I get upset) and my tongue stutters, so send (this message) to Aaron,
26:14  and they have a charge against me, so I am afraid that they will kill me.”
26:15  He (God) said: “No way, you two go with Our signs, We are with you, listening,
26:16  so you two go to Pharaoh and say: “Indeed we are messengers of the Lord of humankind,
26:17  send the children of Israel with us.””
26:18  He (Pharaoh) said: “Did we not bring you up among us as a child, and you stayed among us for years of your life?
26:19  And you did your deed that you did (and committed murder), and you are of the ungrateful ones.”
26:20  He (Moses) said: “I did it while I was of the misguided,
26:21  then I ran away from you because I was afraid of you, then my Lord gave me wisdom and made me of the messengers.
26:22  And that is a favor that you tell me off about it, that you enslaved children of Israel (and you did not enslave or kill me)?”
26:23  Pharaoh said: “And what is the Lord of humankind?”
26:24  He (Moses) said: “The Lord of the skies and the earth and whatever between them, if you are sure.”
26:25  He said to those around him: “Do you not hear (what he is saying)?”
26:26  He (Moses) said: “Your Lord and the Lord of your forefathers.”
26:27  He said (to the others): “Your messenger, the one who was sent to you is certainly crazy.”
26:28  He (Moses) said: “The Lord of the east and the west and whatever between them, if you understand.”
26:29  He said: “If you take any god other than me, I shall make you of the prisoners.”
26:30  He (Moses) said: “Even if I bring you something obvious?”
26:31  He said: “Then bring it, if you are of the truthful ones.”
26:32  So he threw his cane and it immediately became a visible serpent.
26:33  And he took out his hand, and it was white to the viewers.
26:34  He said to the assembly around him: “Indeed this is a knowledgeable (and skillful) magician.
26:35  He wants to drive you out of your land with his magic, so what do you instruct?”
26:36  They said: “Put him and his brother off (for a while) and send gatherers to the cities
26:37  to bring you every skillful magician.”
26:38  So the magicians were collected for an appointment on a known day.
26:39  And people were told: “Would you come together?
26:40  That we may follow the magicians if they are the winners.”
26:41  So when the magicians came, they said to Pharaoh: “Is there a reward for us if we are the winners?”
26:42  He said: “Yes, then you will certainly be among the close ones.”
26:43  Moses said to them: “Throw what you are going to throw.”
26:44  So they threw their ropes and their canes and they said: “By Pharaoh’s power, we shall be the winners.”
26:45  Then Moses threw his cane, and it immediately swallowed whatever they had faked.
26:46  So the magicians fell, prostrating (and showing humbleness).
26:47  They said: “We believe in the Lord of humankind,
26:48  Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
26:49  He (Pharaoh) said: “Did you believe in him before I give you permission? He is certainly your superior, the one who taught you the magic, and you will certainly know that I shall cut off your hands and feet on opposite side, and I shall crucify you all.”
26:50  They said: “No problem, indeed we are returners to our Lord.
26:51  Indeed we hope that our Lord will forgive us our mistakes because we are the first of the believers.”
26:52  And We revealed to Moses: “Travel with My servants by night, indeed you will be followed.”
26:53  So Pharaoh sent gatherers to the cities,
26:54  (saying:) “Indeed these are a small group,
26:55  and they have certainly angered us
26:56  and we are all certainly alert (and ready).”
26:57  So We drove them out of gardens and springs,
26:58  and treasures and honorable position.
26:59  That is how it was, and We left them as inheritance for children of Israel.
26:60  So they (Pharaoh’s army) followed them at sunrise.
26:61  So when the two crowds saw each other, companions of Moses said: “We shall be caught.”
26:62  He (Moses) said: “No way, indeed my Lord is with me, He is going to guide me.”
26:63  And We revealed to Moses: “Strike the sea with your cane.” So it opened up, and each side became like a great mountain.
26:64  And We brought the others (Pharaoh’s army) near there.
26:65  And We saved Moses and those with him altogether.
26:66  Then We drowned the others.
26:67  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:68  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:69  And read Abraham’s story to them.
26:70  When he said to his father and his people: “What do you serve?”
26:71  They said: “We serve idols, and we continue to be devoted to them.”
26:72  He said: “Do they hear you when you call on them?
26:73  Or do they benefit you or harm you?”
26:74  They said: “No, but we found our fathers doing like this.”
26:75  He said: “Have you thought about what you have been serving,
26:76  you and your forefathers?
26:77  Indeed they are my enemies, except the Lord of humankind,
26:78  the One Who created me, and He guides me,
26:79  and the One Who gives me food and gives me drink,
26:80  and when I get sick, He heals me,
26:81  and the One Who makes me die, then He makes me alive,
26:82  and the One Who I hope will forgive my mistakes on the Judgment Day.
26:83  My Lord, give me wisdom and join me with the righteous,
26:84  and give me a good name on the tongue of the later ones (and future generations),
26:85  and make me among inheritors of garden of the delight,
26:86  and forgive my father, indeed he is of the misguided
26:87  and do not humiliate me on a day that they are raised,
26:88  a day that wealth and children have no benefit,
26:89  except anyone who brings a sound (and pure) heart to God.”
26:90  And (on that day) the garden is brought near for those who are cautious (of God),
26:91  and the hellfire is made apparent to the misled ones.
26:92  And it is said to them: “Where are what you were serving
26:93  besides God? Can they help you or help themselves?”
26:94  So they and the misled ones are thrown headfirst into it (hellfire)
26:95  and troops of Iblis (Satan), altogether.
26:96  And while they dispute about it, they say:
26:97  ”By God, we were in an obvious error,
26:98  when we made you equal to the Lord of humankind.
26:99  And no one misguided us except the guilty ones.
26:100  So, we do not have any mediators
26:101  and no true friend.
26:102  And if there was a return for us (to live again), then we would become of the believers.”
26:103  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:104  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:105  People of Noah denied the messengers.
26:106  When their brother Noah said to them: “Why won’t you be cautious (of God)?
26:107  I am an honest messenger for you,
26:108  so be cautious of God and obey me.
26:109  And I do not ask you for any wage, for my wage is only responsibility of the Lord of humankind,
26:110  so be cautious of God and obey me.”
26:111  They said: “Should we believe in you while the meanest (and the worst) follow you?”
26:112  He said: “I have no knowledge of what they used to do.
26:113  Their account is only upon my Lord, if you realize.
26:114  And I do not drive away the believers.
26:115  I am only a clear warner.”
26:116  They said: “Noah, if you do not stop, you shall become among the stoned ones.”
26:117  He said: “My Lord, indeed my people have denied me,
26:118  so judge decisively (or open a space) between me and them, and save me and anyone who is with me of the believers.”
26:119  So We saved him and anyone with him in the loaded Ark,
26:120  and We drowned the rest.
26:121  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:122  And your Lord is certainly powerful and merciful.
26:123  (People of) Aad denied the messengers,
26:124  when their brother Hud said to them: “Why won’t you be cautious (of God)?
26:125  I am an honest messenger for you,
26:126  so be cautious of God and obey me.
26:127  And I do not ask you for any wage, for my wage is only responsibility of the Lord of humankind.
26:128  Do you build a sign on every high place to fool around?
26:129  And you take up castles that you may live forever?
26:130  And when you attack, you attack as tyrants?
26:131  So be cautious of God and obey me.
26:132  And be cautious of the One Who helped you with what you know.
26:133  He helped you with livestock and children
26:134  and gardens and springs.
26:135  Indeed I am afraid of the punishment of a great day upon you.”
26:136  They said: “It is the same to us whether you advise or are not of the advisers,
26:137  this is only the character (way of life) of the earlier ones,
26:138  and we will not be punished.”
26:139  So they denied him, then We destroyed them. Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:140  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:141  (People of) Thamud denied the messengers,
26:142  when their brother Salih said to them: “Why won’t you be cautious (of God)?
26:143  I am an honest messenger for you,
26:144  so be cautious of God and obey me.
26:145  And I do not ask you for any wage, for my wage is only responsibility of the Lord of humankind.
26:146  Would you be left safe (and secure) in what is here?
26:147  In gardens and springs
26:148  and plantations and a date palms with their ripe (and delicious) fruit clusters
26:149  and houses you skillfully carve out of the mountains.
26:150  So be cautious of God and obey me,
26:151  and do not obey the order of the excessive ones,
26:152  those who commit corruption on the earth and do not reform.”
26:153  They said: “You are only of the bewitched ones,
26:154  you are only a human being like us, so bring a miracle if you are of the truthful ones.”
26:155  He said: “This is a (female) camel, she has (a portion of) drink and you have your (portion of) drink, on a specific day.
26:156  And do not touch her with harm otherwise the punishment of a great day will take you.”
26:157  So they killed her, then they became regretful.
26:158  Then the punishment took them. Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:159  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:160  People of Lot denied the messengers,
26:161  when their brother Lot said to them: “Why won’t you be cautious (of God)?
26:162  I am an honest messenger for you,
26:163  so be cautious of God and obey me.
26:164  And I do not ask you for any wage, for my wage is only responsibility of the Lord of humankind.
26:165  Do you approach the males among humankind,
26:166  and you leave what your Lord created for you as your wives? No, but you are people who exceed the limits.”
26:167  They said: “Lot, if you do not stop, you shall be of those driven out.”
26:168  He said: “Indeed I am of those who despise your action.
26:169  My Lord, save me and my family from what they do.”
26:170  So We saved him and his family altogether,
26:171  except an old woman (his wife who was) among those staying behind.
26:172  and We destroyed the others.
26:173  And We poured down a rain on them, and it was an awful rain on those who were warned.
26:174  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:175  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:176  The inhabitants of the woods (people of Midian) denied the messengers,
26:177  when Shu'aib (Jethro) said to them: “Why won’t you be cautious (of God)?
26:178  I am an honest messenger for you,
26:179  so be cautious of God and obey me.
26:180  And I do not ask you for any wage, for my wage is only responsibility of the Lord of humankind.
26:181  Give the full measure, and do not be of those who give less (than due),
26:182  and weigh with accurate scale,
26:183  and do not shortchange people their things and do not do mischief on the earth as corruptors.
26:184  And be cautious of the One Who created you and the earlier generations.”
26:185  They said: “Indeed you are of the bewitched ones,
26:186  you are only a human being like us, and we think you are among the liars.
26:187  So, make pieces of the sky fall on us, if you are of the truthful ones.”
26:188  He said: “My Lord knows best what you do.”
26:189  So they denied him, then the punishment of a cloudy day (of fire) took them. Indeed it was the punishment of a great day.
26:190  Indeed there is a sign in that, and most of them are not believers.
26:191  And indeed your Lord is the powerful and the merciful.
26:192  And it (Quran) is certainly a revelation by the Lord of humankind.
26:193  The honest spirit (Gabriel) came down with it
26:194  to your heart so that you be of the warners,
26:195  in clear Arabic language.
26:196  And indeed it is in the scriptures of the earlier ones.
26:197  Is it not a sign for them that the knowledgeable children of Israel know it?
26:198  And if We had sent it down to someone of the non-Arabs,
26:199  and he had read it to them, they would not have been believers in it.
26:200  That is how We insert/pass it through the hearts of the guilty ones,
26:201  they would not believe in it until they see the painful punishment.
26:202  And it comes to them suddenly while they do not realize.
26:203  Then they say: “May we be given a delay?”
26:204  Do they still want to rush Our punishment?
26:205  Have you considered that if We make them enjoy for some years,
26:206  then what they were promised (the punishment) comes to them,
26:207  what they were made to enjoy will not be of any use to them?
26:208  We did not destroy any town (or population) unless there were warners for it
26:209  to remind, and We were not unjust.
26:210  And the devils did not come down with it (Quran).
26:211  It is not appropriate for them, and they can not.
26:212  Indeed they are blocked from hearing (it).
26:213  So (Muhammad,) do not call on another god with God, otherwise you become of the punished ones.
26:214  And warn your closest family,
26:215  and lower your wing (and be nice) for anyone who follows you among the believers.
26:216  And If they disobey you, then say: “I am clear of what you do.”
26:217  And put your trust in the powerful, the merciful.
26:218  The One Who sees you when you stand (for prayer)
26:219  and your movement among those who prostrate (and show humbleness).
26:220  Indeed He hears all and knows all.
26:221  Should I inform you of whom the devils come down on?
26:222  They come down on every lying sinner,
26:223  who gives ear (and listens to the devils), and most of them are liars.
26:224  And the poets, the misled ones (those who lost the right way) follow them.
26:225  Have you not seen that they drift into every valley (and subject),
26:226  and they say what they do not do?
26:227  Except those (poets) who believe and do good and often remember God and help/defend themselves after they are wronged. And those who do wrong are going to know to what return they will return.
