26:1 Ṭā. Sīn. Mīm.
26:2 These are the signs of the clear Book.
26:3 Perhaps thou dost torment thyself that they are not believers.
26:4 If We will, We will send down a sign from Heaven and their heads would remain bowed before it in humility.
26:5 Yet no new reminder comes to them from the Compassionate, but that they turn away from it.
26:6 Indeed, they have denied it, but there shall come to them the tidings of that which they used to mock.
26:7 Have they not considered the earth, how much of every noble kind We have caused to grow therein?
26:8 Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:9 And truly thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:10 And [remember] when thy Lord called out to Moses, “Go to the wrongdoing people,
26:11 the people of Pharaoh. Will they not be reverent?”
26:12 He said, “My Lord, truly I fear that they will deny me.
26:13 And my breast will be straitened, and my tongue will not be unfettered; so send unto Aaron.
26:14 And they have a crime against me; thus I fear that they will slay me.”
26:15 He said, “Nay! Go forth, then, with Our signs. We shall be with you, listening.
26:16 So go to Pharaoh and say, ‘Verily we are sent by the Lord of the worlds,
26:17 that you may send with us the Children of Israel.’”
26:18 He said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and did you not stay among us for years of your life?
26:19 And you did your deed which you did, and you are one of the ingrates.”
26:20 He said, “I did it then, when I was one of those who are astray.
26:21 So I fled from you when I was afraid of you. Then my Lord granted me judgment and placed me among the messengers.
26:22 And that blessing you recount to me is that you have enslaved the Children of Israel.”
26:23 Pharaoh said, “And what is the Lord of the worlds?”
26:24 He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them—would that you were certain.”
26:25 He 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 He said, “Truly your messenger who has been sent to you is possessed!”
26:28 He said, “The Lord of the East and the West and whatsoever is between them, if you understand.”
26:29 He said, “Truly if you take a god apart from me, I shall place you among the imprisoned!”
26:30 He said, “And if I bring you something manifest?”
26:31 “Bring it, then, if you are among the truthful.”
26:32 So Moses cast his staff, and behold, it was a serpent manifest.
26:33 Then he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to the beholders.
26:34 He said to the notables around him, “Truly this is a knowing sorcerer,
26:35 who desires to expel you from your land with his sorcery. What would you command?”
26:36 They said, “Leave him and his brother a while, and send marshalers to the cities
26:37 to bring to you every knowing sorcerer.”
26:38 So the sorcerers were brought together for the tryst of an appointed day.
26:39 And it was said unto the people, “Will you gather,
26:40 that haply we may follow the sorcerers if they are the victors?”
26:41 Then, when the sorcerers came, they said to Pharaoh, “Shall we truly have a reward if we are the victors?”
26:42 He said, “Yes, and you shall then be among those brought nigh.”
26:43 Moses said to them, “Cast what you would cast!”
26:44 So they cast their ropes and staffs and said, “By the might of Pharaoh, we shall surely be the victors!”
26:45 Then Moses cast his staff, and behold, it devours what they make falsely!
26:46 Then were the sorcerers cast down, prostrating.
26:47 They said, “We believe in the Lord of the worlds,
26:48 the Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
26:49 He said, “Do you believe in Him before I give you leave? He is indeed your chief, who has taught you sorcery. You will surely know! I shall surely cut off your hands and your feet from opposite sides, and I shall surely crucify you all!”
26:50 They said, “It is no harm. Truly unto our Lord do we turn.
26:51 Truly we hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins for our having been the first of the believers.”
26:52 Then We revealed unto Moses, “Set forth with My servants by night; you shall indeed be pursued.”
26:53 Then Pharaoh sent marshalers to the cities [saying],
26:54 “These indeed are a small band,
26:55 and indeed they have enraged us,
26:56 and we are a host at the ready!”
26:57 So We expelled them from gardens and springs,
26:58 and treasures and a noble station.
26:59 So it was, and We made the Children of Israel to inherit them.
26:60 Then they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 And when the two hosts saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “We are overtaken!”
26:62 He said, “Nay! Truly my Lord is with me; He will guide me.”
26:63 Then We revealed unto Moses, “Strike the sea with thy staff!” and it parted, and each part was as a great mountain.
26:64 And thither We brought the others nigh.
26:65 And We delivered Moses and those with him all together.
26:66 Then We drowned the others.
26:67 Truly in that is a sign, though most of them are not believers.
26:68 And truly thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:69 And recite unto them the story of Abraham,
26:70 when he said to his father and his people, “What are you worshipping?”
26:71 They said, “We worship idols, and we remain ever devoted to them.”
26:72 He said, “Do they hear you when you call?
26:73 Or do they benefit or harm you?”
26:74 They said, “Nay, but we found our fathers doing so.”
26:75 He said, “Have you considered what you worship,
26:76 you and your ancestors?
26:77 For they are all enemies unto me, save the Lord of the worlds,
26:78 Who created me, and guides me,
26:79 and Who feeds me and gives me drink,
26:80 and Who, when I am ill, heals me,
26:81 and Who causes me to die, then gives me life,
26:82 and Who I hope will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment.
26:83 My Lord! Grant me judgment, and bind me to the righteous!
26:84 And make for me faithful renown among later generations.
26:85 And place me among the heirs of the Garden of bliss.
26:86 And forgive my father—he is one of those who are astray.
26:87 And disgrace me not on the Day they are resurrected,
26:88 the Day when neither wealth nor children avail,
26:89 save for him who comes to God with a sound heart.”
26:90 And the Garden will be brought nigh unto the reverent,
26:91 and Hellfire will become apparent to the errant.
26:92 And it will be said unto them, “Where is that which you worshipped
26:93 apart from God? Are they helping you or helping themselves?”
26:94 Then they shall be toppled into it, they and the errant,
26:95 and the hosts of Iblīs all together.
26:96 They will say, as they dispute with one another therein,
26:97 “By God, indeed we were in manifest error,
26:98 when we made you equal with the Lord of the worlds.
26:99 And none caused us to go astray but the guilty.
26:100 So now we have no intercessors,
26:101 nor any loyal friend.
26:102 If we had another turn, we would be among the believers.”
26:103 Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:104 And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:105 The people of Noah denied the messengers,
26:106 when their brother Noah said unto them, “Will you not be reverent?
26:107 Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you.
26:108 So reverence God and obey me.
26:109 And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds.
26:110 So reverence God and obey me.”
26:111 They said, “Shall we believe you, when the lowliest follow you?”
26:112 He said, “What knowledge have I of what they used to do?
26:113 Their reckoning is only by my Lord, were you but aware.
26:114 And I shall not drive away the believers.
26:115 I am but a clear warner.”
26:116 They said, “Truly if you cease not, O Noah, you shall indeed be among the stoned.”
26:117 He said, “My Lord, verily my people have denied me.
26:118 So decide between me and them, and deliver me and the believers who are with me!”
26:119 So We delivered him and those who were with him in the full-laden Ark.
26:120 Then afterwards We drowned those who remained.
26:121 Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:122 And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:123 ʿĀd denied the messengers,
26:124 when their brother Hūd said unto them, “Will you not be reverent?
26:125 Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you.
26:126 So reverence God and obey me.
26:127 And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds.
26:128 Do you frivolously build on every high place a sign?
26:129 And do you occupy castles, that haply you may ever abide?
26:130 And when you strike, do you strike as tyrants?
26:131 So reverence God and obey me.
26:132 And reverence Him who has succored you with what you know,
26:133 succored you with cattle and children,
26:134 and gardens and springs.
26:135 Truly I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous day!”
26:136 They said, “It is the same to us whether you exhort us or whether you are not among those who exhort.
26:137 This is naught but the ethos of those of old,
26:138 and we shall not be punished.”
26:139 So they denied him, and We destroyed them. Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:140 And truly thy Lord is, indeed, the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:141 The Thamūd denied the messengers,
26:142 when their brother Ṣāliḥ said unto them, “Will you not be reverent?
26:143 Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you.
26:144 So reverence God and obey me.
26:145 And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds.
26:146 Will you be left among that which is here, secure,
26:147 amid gardens and springs,
26:148 sown fields, date palms with ripe stalks?
26:149 And you skillfully hew dwellings in the mountains.
26:150 So reverence God and obey me.
26:151 And obey not the commands of the prodigal,
26:152 who work corruption upon the earth, and do not set matters aright.”
26:153 They said, “You are but one of the bewitched.
26:154 You are naught but a human being like us; so bring a sign, if you are among the truthful.”
26:155 He said, “This is a she-camel; she shall have drink and you shall drink on an appointed day.
26:156 And touch her not with harm, lest you be taken by the punishment of a tremendous day.”
26:157 But they hamstrung her, and then became remorseful.
26:158 So the punishment seized them. Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:159 And truly thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:160 The people of Lot denied the messengers,
26:161 when their brother Lot said unto them, “Will you not be reverent?
26:162 Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you,
26:163 so reverence God and obey me.
26:164 And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds.
26:165 Among all creatures do you come unto males,
26:166 leaving your spouses your Lord created for you? Nay, but you are a transgressing people.”
26:167 They said, “If you cease not, O Lot, you will be among those who are expelled.”
26:168 He said, “Truly I am of those who detest what you do.
26:169 My Lord! Deliver me and my family from what they do.”
26:170 So We delivered him and his family all together,
26:171 save for an old woman among those who lagged behind.
26:172 Then We destroyed the others.
26:173 And We rained a rain upon them. Evil was the rain of the warned!
26:174 Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:175 And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:176 The inhabitants of the thicket denied the messengers,
26:177 when Shuʿayb said unto them, “Will you not be reverent?
26:178 Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you.
26:179 So reverence God and obey me.
26:180 And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds.
26:181 Give full measure, and be not among those who fall short.
26:182 Weigh with the right balance,
26:183 and diminish not people’s goods, nor behave wickedly upon the earth, working corruption.
26:184 And reverence Him Who created you and the generations of old.”
26:185 They said, “You are but one of the bewitched.
26:186 You are naught but a human being like us, and indeed we deem you to be among the liars,
26:187 so make fragments from the sky fall upon us, if you are among the truthful.”
26:188 He said, “My Lord knows best what you do.”
26:189 So they denied him, and the punishment of the day of gloom seized them. Truly it was the punishment of a tremendous day.
26:190 Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.
26:191 And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:192 And truly it is a revelation of the Lord of the worlds,
26:193 brought down by the Trustworthy Spirit,
26:194 upon thine heart—that thou mayest be among the warners—
26:195 in a clear, Arabic tongue.
26:196 It is indeed in the scriptures of those of old.
26:197 Is it not a sign for them that the learned of the Children of Israel know it?
26:198 And had We sent it down upon some non-Arab,
26:199 and he recited it unto them, they would not have believed in it.
26:200 Thus do We place it into the hearts of the guilty;
26:201 they will not believe in it till they see the painful punishment;
26:202 so it will come upon them suddenly, while they are unaware.
26:203 Then they will say, “Will we be granted respite?”
26:204 Do they seek to hasten Our Punishment?
26:205 Consider: if We grant them enjoyment for years,
26:206 and there comes upon them that which they were promised,
26:207 of what avail to them will be that which they were made to enjoy?
26:208 And never did We destroy a town save that it had warners,
26:209 as a reminder; and We did no wrong.
26:210 And the satans did not descend with it,
26:211 nor is it fitting for them, nor are they able.
26:212 Indeed, they are debarred from hearing [it].
26:213 So call not upon another god along with God, lest thou be among the punished.
26:214 And warn thy tribe, thy nearest kin,
26:215 and lower thy wing to the believers who follow thee.
26:216 And should they disobey thee, say, “Truly I am quit of that which you do.”
26:217 And trust in the Mighty, the Merciful,
26:218 Who sees thee when thou standest [to pray],
26:219 and thy movement amid those who prostrate.
26:220 Truly He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
26:221 Shall I inform thee of those upon whom the satans descend?
26:222 They descend upon every sinful liar,
26:223 eavesdropping, and most of them are liars.
26:224 And as for the poets, the errant follow them.
26:225 Hast thou not considered that they wander in every valley,
26:226 and that they say what they do not do?
26:227 Not so those who believe and perform righteous deeds, and remember God much, and help one another after having been wronged. And those who do wrong shall know to what homecoming they will return!
