36:1  O man
36:2  By the Qur’an, full of wisdom
36:3  Surely thou art one of the messengers
36:4  On a right way
36:5  A revelation of the Mighty
36:6  That thou mayest warn a people whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless
36:7  The word has indeed proved true of most of them, so they believe not
36:8  Surely We have placed on their necks chains reaching up to the chins, so they have their heads raised aloft
36:9  And We have set a barrier before them and a barrier behind them, thus We have covered them, so that they see not
36:10  And it is alike to them whether thou warn them or warn them not -- they believe not
36:11  Thou canst warn him only who follows the Reminder and fears the Beneficent in secret; so give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward
36:12  Surely We give life to the dead, and We write down that which they send before and their footprints, and We record everything in a clear writing
36:13  And set out to them a parable of the people of the town, when apostles came to it
36:14  When We sent to them two, they rejected them both; then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are sent to you
36:15  They said: You are only mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent revealed anything -- you only lie
36:16  They said: Our Lord knows that we are surely sent to you
36:17  And our duty is only a clear deliverance (of the message)
36:18  They said: Surely we augur evil from you. If you desist not, we will surely stone you, and a painful chastisement from us will certainly afflict you
36:19  They said: Your evil fortune is with you. What! If you are reminded! Nay, you are an extravagant people
36:20  And from the remote part of the city there came a man running. He said: O my people, follow the apostles
36:21  Follow him who asks of you no reward, and they are on the right course
36:22  And what reason have I that I should not serve Him Who created me and to Whom you will be brought back
36:23  Shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, if the Beneficent should desire to afflict me with harm, will avail me naught, nor can they deliver me
36:24  Then I shall surely be in clear error
36:25  Surely I believe in your Lord, so hear me
36:26  It was said: Enter the Garden. He said: Would that my people knew
36:27  How my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honoured ones
36:28  And We sent not down upon his people after him any host from heaven, nor do We ever send
36:29  It was naught but a single cry, and lo! they were still
36:30  Alas for the servants! Never does a messenger come to them but they mock him
36:31  See they not how many generations We destroyed before them, that they return not to them
36:32  And all -- surely all -- will be brought before Us
36:33  And a sign to them is the dead earth: We give life to it and bring forth from it grain so they eat of it
36:34  And We make therein gardens of date-palms and grapes and We make springs to flow forth therein
36:35  That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands made it not. Will they not then give thanks
36:36  Glory be to Him Who created pairs of all things, of what the earth grows, and of their kind and of what they know not
36:37  And a sign to them is the night: We draw forth from it the day, then lo! they are in darkness
36:38  And the sun moves on to its destination. That is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knower
36:39  And the moon, We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old dry palm-branch
36:40  Neither is it for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day. And all float on in an orbit
36:41  And a sign to them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship
36:42  And We have created for them the like thereof, whereon they ride
36:43  And if We please, We may drown them, then there is no succour for them, nor can they be rescued -
36:44  But by mercy from Us and for enjoyment till a time
36:45  And when it is said to them: Guard against that which is before you and that which is behind you, that mercy may be shown to you
36:46  And there comes to them no message of the messages of their Lord but they turn away from it
36:47  And when it is said to them: Spend out of that which Allah has given you, those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Shall we feed him whom, if Allah please, He could feed? You are in naught but clear error
36:48  And they say: When will this promise come to pass, if you are truthful
36:49  They await but a single cry, which will overtake them while they contend
36:50  So they will not be able to make a bequest, nor will they return to their families
36:51  And the trumpet is blown, when lo! from their graves they will hasten on to their Lord
36:52  They will say: O woe to us! Who has raised us up from our sleeping-place? This is what the Beneficent promised and the messengers told the truth
36:53  It is but a single cry, when lo! they are all brought before Us
36:54  So this day no soul is wronged in aught; and you are not rewarded aught but for what you did
36:55  Surely the owners of the Garden are on that day in a happy occupation
36:56  They and their wives are in shades, reclining on raised couches
36:57  They have fruits therein, and they have whatever they desire
36:58  Peace! A word from a Merciful Lord
36:59  And withdraw to-day, O guilty ones
36:60  Did I not charge you, O children of Adam, that you serve not the devil? Surely he is your open enemy
36:61  And that you serve Me. This is the right way
36:62  And certainly he led astray numerous people from among you. Could you not then understand
36:63  This is the hell which you were promised
36:64  Enter it this day because you disbelieved
36:65  That day We shall seal their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness as to what they earned
36:66  And if We pleased, We would put out their eyes, then they would strive to get first to the way, but how should they see
36:67  And if We pleased, We would transform them in their place, then they would not be able to go on, or turn back
36:68  And whomsoever We cause to live long, We reduce to an object state in creation. Do they not understand
36:69  And We have not taught him poetry, nor is it meet for him. This is naught but a Reminder and a plain Qur’an
36:70  To warn him who would have life, and (that) the word may prove true against the disbelievers
36:71  See they not that We have created cattle for them, out of what Our hands have wrought, so they are their masters
36:72  And We have subjected them to them, so some of them they ride, and some they eat
36:73  And therein they have advantages and drinks. Will they not then give thanks
36:74  And they take gods besides Allah and they may be helped
36:75  They are not able to help them, and they are a host brought up before them
36:76  So let not their speech grieve thee. Surely We know what they do in secret and what they do openly
36:77  Does not man see that We have created him from the small life-germ? Then lo! he is an open disputant
36:78  And he strikes out a likeness for Us and forgets his own creation. Says he: Who will give life to bones, when they are rotten
36:79  Say: He will give life to them, Who brought them into existence at first, and He is Knower of all creation
36:80  Who produced fire for you out of the green tree, so that with it you kindle
36:81  Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? Yea! And He is the Creator (of all), the Knower
36:82  His command, when He intends anything, is only to say to it, Be, and it is
36:83  So glory be to Him in Whose hand is the kingdom of all things! and to Him you will be returned
