Ali Quli Qara'i rendition of Surah The Poets(ash-Shu`ara`)
---
26:1 Ta, Sa«n, Ma«m.
26:2 These are the signs of the Manifest Book.
26:3 You are liable to imperil your life [out of distress] that they will not have faith.
26:4 If We wish We will send down to them a sign from the sky before which their heads will remain bowed in humility.
26:5 There would not come to them any new reminder from the All-beneficent but that they used to disregard it.
26:6 They have certainly denied [the truth], but soon there will come to them the news of what they have been deriding.
26:7 Have they not regarded the earth, how many We have caused to grow in it of every splendid kind [of vegetation]?
26:8 There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:9 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:10 When your Lord called out to Moses: [saying,] ‘Go to the wrongdoing people,
26:11 the people of Pharaoh. Will they not be wary [of Allah]?’
26:12 He said, ‘My Lord! I fear they will impugn me,
26:13 and I will become upset, and my tongue will fail me. So send [Your messenger] to Aaron.
26:14 Also they have a charge against me, and I fear they will kill me.’
26:15 He said, ‘Certainly not! Let the two of you go with Our signs: We will indeed be with you, hearing [everything].
26:16 So approach Pharaoh and say, ‘‘We are indeed envoys of the Lord of the worlds
26:17 that you let the Children of Israel go with us.’’ ’
26:18 He said, ‘Did we not rear you as a child among us, and did you not stay with us for years of your life?
26:19 Then you committed that deed of yours, and you are an ingrate.’
26:20 He said, ‘I did that when I was astray.
26:21 So I fled from you, as I was afraid of you. Then my Lord gave me judgement and made me one of the apostles.
26:22 As for that favour, you remind me of it reproachfully because you have enslaved the Children of Israel.’
26:23 He said, ‘And what is ‘‘the Lord of all the worlds?’’ ’
26:24 He said, ‘The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, —should you have conviction.’
26:25 He said to those who were around him, ‘Don’t you hear?!’
26:26 He said, ‘Your Lord, and the Lord of your forefathers!’
26:27 He said, ‘Indeed your messenger, who has been sent to you, is surely crazy!’
26:28 He said, ‘The Lord of the east and the west and whatever is between them —should you apply reason.’
26:29 He said, ‘If you take up any god other than me, I will surely make you a prisoner!’
26:30 He said, ‘What if I bring you something manifest?’
26:31 He said, ‘Then bring it, should you be truthful.’
26:32 Thereat he threw down his staff, and behold, it was a manifest python.
26:33 Then he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to the onlookers.
26:34 He said to the elite [who stood] around him, ‘This is indeed an expert magician
26:35 who seeks to expel you from your land with his magic. So what do you advise?’
26:36 They said, ‘Put him and his brother off for a while, and send heralds to the cities
26:37 to bring you every expert magician.’
26:38 So the magicians were gathered for the tryst of a known day,
26:39 and the people were told: ‘Will you gather?!’
26:40 ‘Maybe we will follow the magicians, should they be the victors!’
26:41 So when the magicians came, they said to Pharaoh, ‘Shall we indeed have a reward if we were to be the victors?’
26:42 He said, ‘ Of course; and indeed you shall be among those near [to me].’
26:43 Moses said to them, ‘Throw down what you have to throw!’
26:44 So they threw down their sticks and ropes, and said, ‘By the might of Pharaoh, we shall surely be the victors!’
26:45 Thereat Moses threw down his staff, and behold, it was swallowing what they had faked.
26:46 Thereat the magicians fell down prostrating.
26:47 They said, ‘We believe in the Lord of all the worlds,
26:48 the Lord of Moses and Aaron.’
26:49 He said, ‘Do you profess faith in Him before I permit you? He is indeed your chief who has taught you magic! Soon you will surely know! Surely I will cut off your hands and feet from opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all.’
26:50 They said, ‘[There is] no harm [in that]! Indeed we shall return to our Lord.
26:51 Indeed we hope our Lord will forgive us our iniquities for being the first to believe.’
26:52 Then We revealed to Moses, [saying], ‘Take My servants on a journey by night, for you will be pursued.’
26:53 Then Pharaoh sent heralds to the cities,
26:54 [announcing:] ‘These are indeed a small gang.
26:55 They have surely aroused our wrath,
26:56 and indeed we are all on our guard.’
26:57 So We expelled them from gardens and springs,
26:58 and [from] treasures and splendid places.
26:59 So it was; and We bequeathed them to the Children of Israel.
26:60 Then they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 When the two hosts sighted each other, the companions of Moses said, ‘Indeed we have been caught up.’
26:62 He said, ‘Certainly not! Indeed my Lord is with me. He will guide me.’
26:63 Thereupon We revealed to Moses: ‘Strike the sea with your staff!’ Whereupon it parted, and each part was as if it were a great mountain.
26:64 There, We brought the others near.
26:65 And We delivered Moses and all those who were with him.
26:66 Then We drowned the others.
26:67 There is indeed a sign in that, but most of them do not have faith.
26:68 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:69 Relate to them the account of Abraham
26:70 when he said to his father and his people, ‘What is it that you are worshiping?!’
26:71 They said, ‘We worship idols, and we will go on clinging to them.’
26:72 He said, ‘Do they hear you when you call them?
26:73 Or do they bring you any benefit, or cause you any harm?’
26:74 They said, ‘Rather we found our fathers acting likewise.’
26:75 He said, ‘Have you regarded what you have been worshipping,
26:76 you and your ancestors?
26:77 They are indeed hateful to me, but the Lord of all the worlds,
26:78 who created me, it is He who guides me,
26:79 and provides me with food and drink,
26:80 and when I get sick, it is He who cures me;
26:81 who will make me die, then He will bring me to life,
26:82 and who, I hope, will forgive me my iniquities on the Day of Retribution.’
26:83 ‘My Lord! Grant me [unerring] judgement, and unite me with the Righteous.
26:84 Confer on me a worthy repute among the posterity,
26:85 and make me one of the heirs to the paradise of bliss.
26:86 Forgive my father, for he is one of those who are astray.
26:87 Do not disgrace me on the day that they will be resurrected,
26:88 the day when neither wealth nor children will avail,
26:89 except him who comes to Allah with a sound heart,’
26:90 and paradise will be brought near for the Godwary,
26:91 and hell will be brought into view for the perverse,
26:92 and they shall be told: ‘Where is that which you used to worship
26:93 besides Allah? Do they help you, or do they help each other?’
26:94 Then they will be cast into it on their faces —they and the perverse,
26:95 and the hosts of Iblis all together.
26:96 They will say, as they wrangle in it [together],
26:97 ‘By Allah, we had indeed been in manifest error,
26:98 when we equated you with the Lord of all the worlds!
26:99 And no one led us astray except the guilty.
26:100 Now we have no intercessors,
26:101 nor do we have any sympathetic friend.
26:102 Had there been another turn for us, we would be among the faithful.’
26:103 There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:104 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:105 The people of Noah impugned the apostles
26:106 when Noah, their brother, said to them, ‘Will you not be wary [of Allah]?
26:107 Indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you.
26:108 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:109 I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of all the worlds.
26:110 So be wary of Allah and obey me.’
26:111 They said, ‘Shall we believe in you, when it is the riffraff who follow you?’
26:112 He said, ‘What do I know as to what they used to do?
26:113 Their reckoning is only with my Lord, should you be aware.
26:114 I will not drive away the faithful.
26:115 I am just a manifest warner.’
26:116 They said, ‘Noah, if you do not relinquish, you will certainly be stoned [to death].’
26:117 He said, ‘My Lord! Indeed my people have impugned me.
26:118 So judge conclusively between me and them, and deliver me and the faithful who are with me.’
26:119 Thereupon We delivered him and those who were with him in the laden ark.
26:120 Then We drowned the rest.
26:121 There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:122 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:123 [The people of] ‘a€d impugned the apostles,
26:124 when Hud, their brother, said to them, ‘Will you not be wary [of Allah]?
26:125 Indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you.
26:126 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:127 I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of all the worlds.
26:128 Do you futilely build a sign on every prominence?
26:129 You set up structures as if you will be immortal,
26:130 and when you seize [someone for punishment], you seize [him] like tyrants.
26:131 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:132 And be wary of Him who has provided you with what you know,
26:133 and aided you with sons and with cattle,
26:134 gardens and springs.
26:135 Indeed I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous day.’
26:136 They said, ‘It is the same to us whether you advise us or not.
26:137 These are nothing but the traditions of the ancients,
26:138 and we will not be punished.’
26:139 So they impugned him, whereupon We destroyed them. There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:140 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:141 [The people of] Thamud impugned the apostles
26:142 when á¹¢aliḥ, their brother, said to them, ‘Will you not be wary [of Allah]?
26:143 Indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you.
26:144 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:145 I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of all the worlds.
26:146 Will you be left secure in that which is here
26:147 —amid gardens and springs,
26:148 farms and date palms with dainty spathes?
26:149 And you hew houses out of the mountains skillfully.
26:150 So be wary of Allah and obey me,
26:151 and do not obey the dictates of the profligate,
26:152 who cause corruption in the land and do not bring about reform.’
26:153 They said, ‘Indeed you are one of the bewitched.
26:154 You are just a human being like us. So bring us a sign, should you be truthful.’
26:155 He said, ‘This is a she-camel; she shall drink and you shall drink on known days.
26:156 Do not cause her any harm, for then you shall be seized by the punishment of a terrible day.’
26:157 But they hamstrung her, whereupon they became regretful.
26:158 So the punishment seized them. There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:159 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:160 The people of Lot impugned the apostles
26:161 when Lot, their brother, said to them, ‘Will you not be wary [of Allah]?
26:162 Indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you.
26:163 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:164 I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of all the worlds.
26:165 What! Of all people do you come to males,
26:166 abandoning your wives your Lord has created for you? Rather you are a transgressing lot.’
26:167 They said, ‘Lot, if you do not relinquish, you will surely be banished.’
26:168 He said, ‘Indeed I detest your conduct.’
26:169 ‘My Lord! Deliver me and my family from what they do.’
26:170 So We delivered him and all his family,
26:171 except an old woman who remained behind.
26:172 Then We destroyed [all] the others,
26:173 and rained down upon them a rain [of stones]. Evil was the rain of those who were warned!
26:174 There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:175 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:176 The inhabitants of Aykah impugned the apostles,
26:177 when Shu‘ayb said to them, ‘Will you not be wary [of Allah]?
26:178 Indeed I am a trusted apostle [sent] to you.
26:179 So be wary of Allah and obey me.
26:180 I do not ask you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of all the worlds.
26:181 Observe fully the measure, and do not be of those who give short measure.
26:182 Weigh with an even balance,
26:183 and do not cheat the people of their goods. Do not act wickedly on the earth, causing corruption.
26:184 Be wary of Him who created you and the earlier generations.’
26:185 They said, ‘Indeed you are one of the bewitched.
26:186 You are just a human being like us, and we indeed consider you to be a liar.
26:187 Then make a fragment fall upon us from the sky, should you be truthful.’
26:188 He said, ‘My Lord knows best what you are doing.’
26:189 So they impugned him, and then they were overtaken by the punishment of the day of the overshadowing cloud. It was indeed the punishment of a tremendous day.
26:190 There is indeed a sign in that; but most of them do not have faith.
26:191 Indeed your Lord is the All-mighty, the All-merciful.
26:192 This is indeed [a Book] sent down by the Lord of all the worlds,
26:193 brought down by the Trustworthy Spirit
26:194 upon your heart (so that you may be one of the warners),
26:195 in a clear Arabic language.
26:196 It is indeed [foretold] in the scriptures of the ancients.
26:197 Is it not a sign for them that the learned of the Children of Israel recognize it?
26:198 Had We sent it down upon some non-Arab
26:199 and had he recited it to them, they would not have believed in it.
26:200 This is how We let it pass through the hearts of the guilty:
26:201 they do not believe in it until they sight the painful punishment.
26:202 It will overtake them suddenly while they are unaware.
26:203 Thereupon they will say, ‘Shall we be granted any respite?’
26:204 So do they seek to hasten on Our punishment?
26:205 Do you see, should We let them enjoy for some years,
26:206 then there comes to them what they have been promised,
26:207 of what avail to them will be that which they were given to enjoy?
26:208 We have not destroyed any town without its having warners,
26:209 for the sake of admonition, and We were not unjust.
26:210 It has not been brought down by the devils.
26:211 Neither does it behoove them, nor are they capable [of doing that].
26:212 Indeed they are kept at bay [even] from hearing it.
26:213 So do not invoke any god besides Allah, lest you should be among the punished.
26:214 Warn the nearest of your kinsfolk,
26:215 and lower your wing to the faithful who follow you.
26:216 But if they disobey you, say, ‘I am absolved of what you do.’
26:217 And put your trust in the All-mighty, the All-merciful,
26:218 who sees you when you stand [for prayer],
26:219 and your going about among those who prostrate.
26:220 Indeed He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.
26:221 Should I inform you on whom the devils descend?
26:222 They descend on every sinful liar.
26:223 They eavesdrop, and most of them are liars.
26:224 As for the poets, [only] the perverse follow them.
26:225 Have you not regarded that they rove in every valley,
26:226 and that they say what they do not do?
26:227 Barring those who have faith and do righteous deeds and remember Allah greatly, and aid each other after they have been wronged. And the wrongdoers will soon know at what goal they will end up.
