26:1  Ta. Sin. Mim
26:2  These are the Revelations of the Book clear in itself and clearly showing the truth
26:3  It may be that you (O Messenger) will torment yourself to death because they refuse to believe
26:4  If We will, We can send down a (compelling) sign on them from heaven, so that they are forced to bow their necks before it (in humility)
26:5  Whenever a new Revelation comes to them from the All-Merciful (to warn and enlighten them), they but turn away from it in aversion
26:6  So they have obstinately denied (this Message). But soon they will come to understand what it was that they were mocking
26:7  Have they not considered the earth, how many of every noble kind We have caused to grow therein in pairs
26:8  Surely in this there is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:9  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:10  (Remember) when your Lord called Moses, saying: "Go to the wrongdoing people
26:11  "The people of the Pharaoh. Will they not give up their way in fear of Me and take the way of piety?"
26:12  Moses replied: "My Lord! I fear that they will deny me
26:13  "And my breast will be constricted (so that I fail to show the necessary perseverance and tolerance), and my tongue will not be free (to convey Your Message with the right fluency), so appoint Aaron as a Messenger beside me
26:14  "They also have a charge of crime against me, so I fear that they will kill me (and not let me convey Your Message)."
26:15  (God) said: "Not so, indeed! Go forth, then, the two of you, with Our miraculous signs (with which I have provided you). We will surely be with you all (you and them), listening attentively (to all that is to happen between you)
26:16  "So go, both of you, to the Pharaoh and say: ‘We have come with a message from the Lord of the worlds (He Who has created and sustains everything)
26:17  ‘Let the Children of Israel go with us!’ "
26:18  (When Moses delivered his message, the Pharaoh) said: "Did we not bring you up among us (in our palace) when you were a child? And you spent many years of your life among us
26:19  "Then you committed that heinous deed of yours which you did, (proving thereby that) you are indeed one of the ungrateful."
26:20  (Moses) said: "I committed that deed unintentionally when I did not know (it would end in the way it did.
26:21  "Then I fled from you when I feared (living together with) you (any longer), but (since then) my Lord has granted to me sound, wise judgment, and has made me one of His Messengers
26:22  "As for that favor you taunt me with: (it is owed to the fact) that you have enslaved the Children of Israel."
26:23  (The Pharaoh) said: "What (and who) is that, ‘the Lord of the worlds’?"
26:24  (Moses) answered: "The Lord (Creator, Sustainer, and sole Ruler) of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if you would but (let yourselves be) convinced!"
26:25  (The Pharaoh) said to those around him: "Do you not hear (what he is saying)?"
26:26  (Moses) continued: "Your Lord, and the Lord of your forefathers."
26:27  (The Pharaoh) exclaimed: "See! This Messenger of yours who has been sent to you is assuredly a madman."
26:28  (Moses) went on: "He is the Lord of the east and the west and all that is between them, if you would but reason and understand!"
26:29  (The Pharaoh) threatened: "If you, (O Moses,) take any deity other than me (to worship, to offer your prayer and sacrifices to, and to seek help from), I will most certainly make you one of those imprisoned."
26:30  (Moses) said: "Even if I have brought you something clear (which demonstrates that I am speaking the truth)?"
26:31  (The Pharaoh) answered: "Then, produce it if you are truthful (in your claim)!"
26:32  Thereupon Moses threw down his staff, and it was manifestly a serpent
26:33  And he drew forth his (right) hand (from his armpit where he had put it), and thereupon it was shining white to those looking on
26:34  (The Pharaoh) said to the chiefs around him: "This is indeed a learned, skillful sorcerer
26:35  "Who seeks to drive you out from your land by his sorcery. What, then, do you advise (me to do)?"
26:36  They said: "Put him and his brother off for a while, and (in the meantime) send forth heralds to all cities
26:37  "To bring to your presence every learned, skillful sorcerer."
26:38  So the sorcerers were assembled (to contend with Moses) at the appointed time on a day (made) well-known (to all)
26:39  And it was said to the people: "Will you not assemble (and attend also)
26:40  "We are expecting that the sorcerers will triumph and we will follow them (in their religion)."
26:41  So then the sorcerers came forth (for the encounter) and said to the Pharaoh: "We shall surely have a reward, if we are the victors, shall we?"
26:42  (The Pharaoh) answered: "Yes, indeed. And you will then be among those near-stationed to me."
26:43  Moses said to them (the sorcerers): "Throw whatever you are going to throw!"
26:44  So they threw their ropes and staffs, saying: "By the might and glory of Pharaoh, we will surely be the victors."
26:45  Thereafter, Moses threw his staff, and behold, it swallowed up their false devices
26:46  The sorcerers threw themselves down, prostrating
26:47  And they said: "We have come to believe in the Lord of the worlds
26:48  "The Lord of Moses and Aaron!"
26:49  (The Pharaoh) said: "What! Do you believe in Him before I give you permission? For sure he is your chief who has taught you sorcery. But in time you will certainly come to know. I will most certainly have your hands and feet cut off alternately, and then I will most certainly have you crucified all together."
26:50  They responded: "There is no hurt (in what you threaten us with). For surely to our (true and everlasting) Lord we are bound to return."
26:51  "We ardently desire that our Lord will forgive us our sins for we are the first to believe."
26:52  (Events developed to the point that) We revealed to Moses: "Set forth with My servants by night: surely, you will be pursued."
26:53  Then the Pharaoh sent heralds to the cities (to mobilize his troops)
26:54  (Saying:) "Those people are indeed a paltry band
26:55  "And (forgetting their lack in numbers and power), they have offended against us (and so provoked our wrath)
26:56  "As for us, we are assuredly a numerous host, ever on guard."
26:57  Thus did We drive them out of (all that they had enjoyed of) gardens and springs
26:58  And treasures, excellent dwellings, and noble status
26:59  Things happened thus, and We made the Children of Israel survive them and inherit (the same kind of bounties)
26:60  At sunrise, the Pharaoh set off in pursuit of them. tyrant tyrannica
26:61  When the two hosts came in view of each other, the companions of Moses said: "We are certainly overtaken!"
26:62  He replied: "Certainly not. My Lord is surely with me; He will guide me (to deliverance)."
26:63  We revealed to Moses: "Strike the sea with your staff." Thereupon the sea split, and each part became like a towering mountain
26:64  We brought the others (the Pharaoh and his host) close to the same spot
26:65  And We saved Moses and all those who were with him
26:66  Afterwards, We caused the others to drown
26:67  Surely in that (which took place between Moses and Pharaoh) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them (the Pharaoh’s people) were not believers
26:68  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:69  Now recite to them this exemplary history of Abraham
26:70  When he said to his father and his people: "What is it that you worship?"
26:71  They said: "We worship idols; and (even though they are made of wood and stone) we are ever devoted to them (as they are our deities)."
26:72  (Abraham) said: "Do they hear you when you invoke them
26:73  "Or do they benefit you (when you worship them) or harm (you when you do not)
26:74  They replied: "But we found our forefathers doing the same."
26:75  (Abraham) said: "So, have you considered what you have been worshipping
26:76  "You and all your forefathers that have passed (before you)
26:77  "I see that they (all that you worship) are enemies to me, but the Lord of the worlds is not
26:78  "He Who has created me and so guides me (to whatever is to my benefit in both this world and the next)
26:79  "And He it is Who gives me food and drink
26:80  "And Who, when I fall ill, heals me
26:81  "And Who will make me die and then will give me life again
26:82  "And Who, I hope, will forgive me my faults on Judgment Day."
26:83  "My Lord! Grant me true, wise judgment, and join me with the righteous
26:84  "And grant me a most true and virtuous renown among posterity
26:85  "And make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of bounty and blessing
26:86  "And forgive my father, for he is among those who have gone astray
26:87  "And do not disgrace me on the Day when all people will be raised up to life
26:88  "The Day when neither wealth will be of any use, nor offspring
26:89  "But only he (will prosper) who comes before God with a sound heart (free of all kinds of unbelief, hypocrisy, and associating partners with God)."
26:90  And Paradise (on that Day) will be brought near for the God-revering, pious
26:91  And the Blazing Flame will be laid open before those who rebelled (against God) and went astray
26:92  They will be asked: "Where are all those (idols or revered human beings, or angels, or jinn) that you used to worshi
26:93  "Apart from God? Can they be of any help to you, or even to themselves?"
26:94  Then they will be hurled into the Flame headlong, one upon another – they (the idols), and the rebellious (who worship them)
26:95  And so too the hosts of Iblis, all together
26:96  Blaming one another therein, they (the rebellious) will say (to the others)
26:97  "By God, assuredly, we were lost in obvious error
26:98  "When we held you as equals (in worship and obedience) to the Lord of the worlds
26:99  "It is none but the criminals (the leaders in associating partners with God) who led us astray
26:100  "And now we have none to intercede (on our behalf)
26:101  "Nor any intimate friend
26:102  "If only we had a second chance (in the world), so that we might be among the believers!"
26:103  Surely in that (which took place between Abraham and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:104  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:105  The people of Noah denied (Noah and thereby meant to deny all) the Messengers
26:106  (Recall) when their brother Noah said to them (by way of timely warning): "Will you not keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and seek refuge with His protection
26:107  "Surely I am a Messenger to you, trustworthy
26:108  "So keep form disobedience to God in reverence for Him, and obey me
26:109  "I ask of you no wage for that (for conveying God’s Message); my wage is due only from the Lord of the worlds
26:110  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him, and obey me."
26:111  They responded: "Shall we believe in you, when the lowliest (among the people) follow you!"
26:112  (Noah) said: "What knowledge could I have about what they were engaged in doing (before they became believers)
26:113  "Indeed their reckoning rests with none but my Lord; if only you could understand
26:114  "And it is not expected of me that I should repel the believers
26:115  "I am but a plain warner (responsible for no other duty than the duty to warn)."
26:116  They said: "If you do not desist, O Noah, you will certainly be stoned to death in utter abjection."
26:117  (After ages of struggle) he said (in supplication): "My Lord! Indeed, my people have denied me
26:118  "So judge between me and them a conclusive (and everlasting) separation, and save me and the believers in my company."
26:119  So We saved him and those who were with him in the laden Ark
26:120  And then, following their rescue, We caused the rest to drown
26:121  Surely in that (which took place between Noah and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:122  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:123  The ‘Ad denied (Hud and thereby meant to deny all) the Messengers
26:124  (Recall) when their brother Hud said to them (by way of timely warning): "Will you not keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and seek refuge with His protection
26:125  "Surely I am a Messenger to you, trustworthy
26:126  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:127  "I ask of you no wage for that (for conveying God’s Message); my wage is only due from the Lord of the worlds
26:128  "Will you continue to build on every high spot monumental buildings for fun and show
26:129  "And make for yourselves great castles (as if) hoping that you might live for ever
26:130  "And when you strike and seize (others and their goods), strike and seize in the style of tyrants
26:131  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:132  "Keep from disobedience to Him Who has amply provided you with (all that) you are well-aware of
26:133  "Amply provided you with flocks and herds and children
26:134  "And gardens and springs
26:135  "Indeed I fear for you the punishment of an awesome Day."
26:136  They responded: "It is all the same to us whether you preach or are not of those who preach
26:137  "This (what we do) is the pattern of conduct of (all our) predecessors
26:138  "And (so) we are not going to be subject to any punishment."
26:139  So they denied him and, in consequence, We destroyed them. Surely in that (which took place between Hud and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:140  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:141  The Thamud denied (Salih and thereby meant to deny all) the Messengers
26:142  (Recall) when their brother Salih said to them (by way of timely warning): "Will you not keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and seek refuge with His protection
26:143  "I am indeed a Messenger to you, trustworthy
26:144  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:145  "I ask of you no wage for that (for conveying God’s Message); my wage is only due from the Lord of the worlds
26:146  "(Do you think) you will be left secure forever in what is here before us
26:147  "Amidst gardens and springs
26:148  "Cornfields and date-palms with heavy bunches (of dates)
26:149  "And that you will (continue to) skillfully hew dwellings out of mountains
26:150  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:151  "And do not follow the commands of those who are wasteful (of God-given faculties) and commit excesses
26:152  "Those who cause disorder and corruption on the earth, without setting things right."
26:153  They responded: "You are only one of those who are bewitched
26:154  "You are but a mortal like us, so produce a sign if you are truthful (in your claim of Messengership)."
26:155  (Salih) said: "This is a she-camel, one day is for her to drink and one day is for you to get water
26:156  "Do not touch her with evil lest the punishment of an awesome Day should seize you."
26:157  But (after a time, being unable to put up with it any longer,) they cruelly slaughtered her, and then became regretful
26:158  For the (shocking) punishment seized them. Surely in that (which took place between Salih and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:159  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:160  The people of Lot denied (Lot and thereby meant to deny all) the Messengers
26:161  (Recall) when their brother Lot said to them (by way of timely warning): "Will you not keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and seek refuge with His protection
26:162  "I am indeed a Messenger to you, trustworthy
26:163  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:164  I ask of you no wage for that (for conveying God’s Message); my wage is only due from the Lord of the worlds
26:165  "What! Do you, of all the world’s people, approach men (with lust)
26:166  "And leave aside what your Lord has created (and made lawful) for you in your wives? No, indeed! you are a people exceeding all bounds (of decency)."
26:167  They responded: "If you do not desist, you will most certainly be cast out (from our land)."
26:168  (Lot) said: "I am indeed one who abhors your practice."
26:169  (And he prayed:) "My Lord! Save me and my family from (the consequences of) what they have been doing."
26:170  So We saved him and his family, all of them
26:171  Except an old woman, who was among those who stayed behind (and were destroyed)
26:172  Then We annihilated the others
26:173  We poured upon them a (destructive) rain (of stones). How evil was the rain of those who had been warned
26:174  Surely in that (which took place between Lot and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:175  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:176  The dwellers of al-Aykah denied (Shu‘ayb and thereby meant to deny all) the Messengers
26:177  (Recall) when Shu‘ayb said to them (by way of timely warning): "Will you not keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and seek refuge with His protection
26:178  "I am indeed a Messenger to you, trustworthy
26:179  "So keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and obey me
26:180  "I ask of you no wage for that (for conveying God’s Message); my wage is only due from the Lord of the worlds
26:181  "Give full measure (in all your dealings) and be not one of those who (by cheating and giving less) cause loss to others
26:182  "And weigh with the straighta true, accurate balance
26:183  "Do not wrong people by depriving them of what is rightfully theirs, and do not go about acting wickedly in the land, causing disorder and corruption
26:184  "Keep from disobedience to Him in reverence for Him Who has created you and all the earlier generations."
26:185  They responded: "You are only one of those who are bewitched
26:186  "You are but a mortal like us, and we have become convinced that you are certainly one of the liars
26:187  "So cause lumps from the sky to fall down upon us, if you are truthful in your claim (of Messengership)."
26:188  (Shu‘ayb) said: "My Lord knows well all that you do." (Thus he referred their matter to God.
26:189  So they denied him and in consequence, the punishment of the Day of the Overshadowing seized them. It surely was the punishment of an awesome day
26:190  Surely in that (which took place between Shu‘ayb and his people) there is a sign (a great, important lesson). Most of them were not believers
26:191  And surely your Lord is indeed the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to punish whoever goes against His Glory), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:192  This (Qur’an) is indeed the Book of the Lord of the worlds being sent down by Him (in parts)
26:193  The Trustworthy Spirit brings it dow
26:194  On your heart, so that you may be one of the warners (entrusted with the Divine Revelation)
26:195  In clear Arabic tongue
26:196  It has certainly been (prefigured) in the previous Scriptures
26:197  Is it not an evidence enough for them that the scholars of the Children of Israel know it (to be so)
26:198  But even if We had sent it down on any of the non-Arabs
26:199  And he had recited it to them, they would still not have believed in it
26:200  Thus (because of their willful persistence in unbelief and injustices) have We caused it (the Qur’an) to pass unheeded through the hearts of the disbelieving criminals
26:201  (Despite irrefutable proofs of its truth,) they will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment
26:202  So it will come on them all of a sudden, when they are unaware (and incapable of awareness) of its coming
26:203  Then they say: "Are we to be granted some respite (so that we might reform ourselves?"
26:204  (This being so,) do they still wish for Our punishment to be hastened
26:205  Have you considered that, if We let them enjoy life for many (more) years (– something they will desperately wish for when they face the punishment)
26:206  And the punishment they were promised comes upon them after that
26:207  It will be of no avail to them at all (that their lives of enjoyment were prolonged)
26:208  We have never destroyed any township except that it had warners (sent to it)
26:209  To remind and admonish them. We have never been unjust
26:210  It is not the satans who have brought down this (Book)
26:211  It is neither (permitted nor proper) for them, nor is it within their power (to do that)
26:212  Indeed they are utterly debarred even from hearing it (during its Revelation)
26:213  Hence, never take to you any other deity to invoke besides God, lest you should become of those condemned to the punishment
26:214  And (O Messenger) warn your nearest kinsfolk
26:215  Spread your wings (to provide care and shelter) over the believers who follow you (in practicing God’s commandments in their lives)
26:216  But if they disobey you (your kinsfolk by refusing your call, or those who have newly believed by not giving up their former way of life), then say (to them): "I am free of (responsibility for) what you do."
26:217  And (taking no account of any earthly power in performing your mission) put your trust in the All-Glorious with irresistible might (able to do whatever He wills), the All-Compassionate (especially towards His believing servants)
26:218  He Who sees you when you rise (in the Prayer, and in readiness to carry out Our commands)
26:219  As well as your strenuous efforts in prostration among those who prostrate (to be able to fulfill your duty of servanthood and help the believer to reform their lives)
26:220  Surely, He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing
26:221  (O people!) Shall I inform you upon whom the satans descend
26:222  They descend upon everyone addicted to inventing falsehoods, addicted to sinning
26:223  They (the satans) give ear eagerly (to the conversations of the angels, and whisper to every forger lost in sin as if they received something), but they (both the satans and their sinful agents) are liars in most of their words
26:224  As for poets, only the misguided follow them
26:225  Do you not see that they roam confusedly through all the valleys (of falsehoods, thoughts, and currents)
26:226  And they say what they themselves do not do
26:227  Except those who believe and do good, righteous deeds, and remember God much, and vindicate themselves when they have been wronged. The wrongdoers will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned
