36:1  Y. S
36:2  By the wise Qur'an
36:3  verily, thou art of the apostle
36:4  upon a right way
36:5  The revelation of the mighty, the merciful
36:6  That thou mayest warn a people whose fathers were not warned, and who themselves are heedless
36:7  Now is the sentence due against most of them, for they will not believe
36:8  Verity, we will place upon their necks fetters, and they shall reach up to their chins, and they shall have their heads forced back
36:9  and we will place before them a barrier, and behind them a barrier; and we will cover them and they shall not see
36:10  and it is all, the same to them if thou dost warn them or dost warn them not, they will not believe
36:11  Thou canst only warn him who follows the reminder, and fears the Merciful in the unseen; but give him glad tidings of forgiveness and a noble hire
36:12  Verily, we quicken the dead, and write down what they have done before, and what vestiges they leave behind; and everything have we counted in a plain model
36:13  Strike out for them a parable: the fellows of the city when there came to it the apostles
36:14  when we sent those two and they called them both liars, and we strengthened them with a third; and they said, 'Verily, we are sent to you.
36:15  They said, 'Ye are only mortals like ourselves, nor has the Merciful sent down aught; ye are naught but liars.
36:16  They said, 'Our Lord knows that we are sent to you
36:17  and we have only our plain message to preach.
36:18  They said, 'Verily, we have augured concerning you, and if ye do not desist we will surely stone you, and there shall touch you from us a grievous woe.
36:19  Said they, 'Your augury is with you; what! if ye are reminded -? Nay, ye are an extravagant people!
36:20  And there came from the remote part of the city a man hastening up. Said he, 'O my people! follow the apostles
36:21  follow those who do not ask you a hire, and who are guided
36:22  What ails me that I should not worship Him who originated me, and unto whom I must return
36:23  Shall I take gods beside Him? If the Merciful One desires harm for me, their intercession cannot avail me at all, nor can they rescue me.
36:24  Verily, I should then be in obvious error
36:25  verily, I believe in your Lord, then listen ye to me!
36:26  It was said, 'Enter thou into Paradise!' said he, 'O, would that my people did but know
36:27  for that my Lord has forgiven me, and has made me of the honoured.
36:28  And we did send down upon his people no hosts from heaven, nor yet what we were wont to send down
36:29  it was but a single noise, and lo! they were extinct
36:30  Alas for the servants! there comes to them no apostle but they mock at him
36:31  Have they not seen how many generations we have, destroyed before them
36:32  verily, they shall not return to them; but all of them shall surely altogether be arraigned
36:33  And a sign for them is the dead earth which we have quickened and brought forth therefrom seed, and from it do they eat
36:34  and we made therein gardens and palms and grapes, and we have caused fountains to gush forth therein
36:35  that they may eat from the fruit thereof, and of what their hands have made; will they not then give thanks
36:36  Celebrated be the praises of Him who created all kinds, of what the earth brings forth, and of themselves, and what they know not of
36:37  And a sign to them is the night, from which we strip off the day, and lo! they are in the dark
36:38  and the sun runs on to a place of rest for it; that is the ordinance of the mighty, the wise
36:39  And the moon, we have ordered for it stations, until it comes again to be like an old dry palm branch
36:40  Neither is it proper for it to catch up the moon, nor for the night to outstrip the day, but each one floats on in its sky
36:41  And a sign for them is that we bear their seed in a laden ship
36:42  and we have created for them the like thereof whereon to ride
36:43  and if we please, we drown them, and there is none for them to appeal to; nor are they rescued
36:44  save by mercy from us, as a provision for a season
36:45  And when it is said to them, 'Fear what is before you and what is behind you, haply ye may obtain mercy;
36:46  and thou bringest them not any one of the signs of their Lord, but they turn away therefrom
36:47  and when it is said to them, 'Expend in alms of what God has bestowed upon you,' those who misbelieve say to those who believe, 'Shall we feed him whom, if God pleased, He would feed? ye are only in an obvious error.
36:48  They say, 'When shall this promise come to pass, if ye do tell the truth?
36:49  They await but a single noise, that shall seize them as they are contending
36:50  And they shall not be able to make a bequest; nor to their people shall they return
36:51  but the trumpet shall be blown, and, behold, from their graves unto their Lord shall they slip out
36:52  They shall say, 'O, woe is us! who has raised us up from our sleeping-place? this is what the Merciful promised, and the apostles told the truth!
36:53  It shall be but a single noise, and lo! they are all arraigned before us
36:54  And on that day no soul shall be wronged at all, nor shall ye be rewarded for aught but that which ye have done
36:55  Verily, the fellows of Paradise upon that day shall be employed in enjoyment
36:56  they and their wives, in shade upon thrones, reclining
36:57  therein shall they have fruits, and they shall have what they may call for
36:58  'Peace!' - a speech from the merciful Lord
36:59  'Separate yourselves today, O ye sinners
36:60  Did I not covenant with you, O children of Adam! that ye should not serve Satan? verily, he is to you an open foe
36:61  but serve ye me, this is the right way
36:62  But he led astray a numerous race of you; what! had ye then no sense
36:63  this is hell, which ye were threatened
36:64  broil therein today, for that ye misbelieved!
36:65  On that day we will seat their mouths, and their hands shall speak to us, and their feet shall bear witness of what they earned
36:66  And if we please we could put out their eyes, and they would race along the road; and then how could they see
36:67  And if we pleased we would transform them in their places, and they should not be able to go on, nor yet to return
36:68  And him to whom we grant old age, we bow him down in his form; have they then no sense
36:69  We have not taught him poetry, nor was it proper for him; it is but a reminder and a plain Qur'an
36:70  to warn him who is living; but the sentence is due against the misbelievers
36:71  Have they not seen that we have created for them of what our hands have made for them, cattle, and they are owners thereof
36:72  and we have tamed them for them, and of them are some to ride, and of them are what they eat
36:73  and therein have they advantages and beverages; will they not then give thanks
36:74  But they take, beside God, gods that haply they may be helped
36:75  They cannot help them; yet are they a host ready for them
36:76  But let not their speech grieve thee: verily, we know what they conceal and what they display
36:77  Has not man seen that we have created him from a clot? and lo! he is an open opponent
36:78  and he strikes out for us a likeness; and forgets his creation; and says, 'Who shall quicken bones when they are rotten?
36:79  Say, 'He shall quicken them who produced them at first, for every creation does He know
36:80  who has made for you fire out of a green tree, and lo! ye kindle therewith.
36:81  Is not He who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like thereof? yea! He is the knowing Creator
36:82  His bidding is only, when He desires anything to say to it, 'BE,' and it is
36:83  Then celebrated be the praises of Him in whose hands is the kingdom of everything! and unto Him shall ye return
