36:1  Ya Sin
36:2  By the wise Qur'an
36:3  Lo! thou art of those sen
36:4  On a straight path
36:5  A revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful
36:6  That thou mayst warn a folk whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless
36:7  Already hath the judgment, (for their infidelity) proved true of most of them, for they believe not
36:8  Lo! We have put on their necks carcans reaching unto the chins, so that they are made stiff-necked
36:9  And We have set a bar before them and a bar behind them, and (thus) have covered them so that they see not
36:10  Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not, it is alike for them, for they believe not
36:11  Thou warnest only him who followeth the Reminder and feareth the Beneficent in secret. To him bear tidings of forgiveness and a rich reward
36:12  Lo! We it is Who bring the dead to life. We record that which they send before (them, and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear Register
36:13  Coin for them a similitude: The people of the city when those sent (from Allah) came unto them
36:14  When We sent unto them twain, and they denied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: Lo! we have been sent unto you
36:15  They said: Ye are but mortals like unto us. The Beneficent hath naught revealed. Ye do but lie
36:16  They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you
36:17  And our duty is but plain conveyance (of the message)
36:18  (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands
36:19  They said: Your evil augury be with you! Is it because ye are reminded (of the truth)? Nay, but ye are froward folk
36:20  And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent
36:21  Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided
36:22  For what cause should I not serve Him Who hath created me, and unto Whom ye will be brought back
36:23  Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they save
36:24  Then truly I should be in error manifest
36:25  Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me
36:26  It was said (unto him): Enter paradise. He said: Would that my people kne
36:27  With what (munificence) my Lord hath pardoned me and made me of the honoured ones
36:28  We sent not down against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We ever send
36:29  It was but one Shout, and lo! they were extinct
36:30  Ah, the anguish for the bondmen! Never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him
36:31  Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which indeed returned not unto them
36:32  But all, without exception, will be brought before Us
36:33  A token unto them is the dead earth. We revive it, and We bring forth from it grain so that they eat thereof
36:34  And We have placed therein gardens of the date-palm and grapes, and We have caused springs of water to gush 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 all the sexual pairs, of that which the earth groweth, and of themselves, and of that which they know not
36:37  A token unto them is night. We strip it of the day, and lo! they are in darkness
36:38  And the sun runneth on unto a resting-place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise
36:39  And for the moon We have appointed mansions till she return like an old shrivelled palm-leaf
36:40  It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit
36:41  And a token unto them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship
36:42  And have created for them of the like thereof whereon they ride
36:43  And if We will, We drown them, and there is no help for them, neither can they be saved
36:44  Unless by mercy from Us and as comfort for a while
36:45  When it is said unto them: Beware of that which is before you and that which is behind you, that haply ye may find mercy (they are heedless)
36:46  Never came a token of the tokens of their Lord to them, but they did turn away from it
36:47  And when it is said unto them: Spend of that wherewith Allah hath provided you, those who disbelieve say unto those who believe: Shall we feed those whom Allah, if He willed, would feed? Ye are in naught else than error manifest
36:48  And they say: When will this promise be fulfilled, if ye are truthful
36:49  They await but one Shout, which will surprise them while they are disputing
36:50  Then they cannot make bequest, nor can they return to their own folk
36:51  And the trumpet is blown and lo! from the graves they hie unto their Lord
36:52  Crying: Woe upon us! Who hath raised us from our place of sleep? This is that which the Beneficent did promise, and the messengers spoke truth
36:53  It is but one Shout, and behold them brought together before Us
36:54  This day no soul is wronged in aught; nor are ye requited aught save what ye used to do
36:55  Lo! those who merit paradise this day are happily employed
36:56  They and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining
36:57  Theirs the fruit (of their good deeds) and theirs (all) that they ask
36:58  The word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace
36:59  But avaunt ye, O ye guilty, this day
36:60  Did I not charge you, O ye sons of Adam, that ye worship not the devil - Lo! he is your open foe!
36:61  But that ye worship Me? That was the right path
36:62  Yet he hath led astray of you a great multitude. Had ye then no sense
36:63  This is hell which ye were promised (if ye followed him)
36:64  Burn therein this day for that ye disbelieved
36:65  This day We seal up their mouths, and their hands speak out to Us and their feet bear witness as to what they used to earn
36:66  And had We willed, We verily could have quenched their eyesight so that they should struggle for the way. Then how could they have seen
36:67  And had We willed, We verily could have fixed them in their place, making them powerless to go forward or turn back
36:68  He whom we bring unto old age, We reverse him in creation (making him go back to weakness after strength). Have ye then no sense
36:69  And We have not taught him (Muhammad) poetry, nor is it meet for him. This is naught else than a Reminder and a Lecture making plain
36:70  To warn whosoever liveth, and that the word may be fulfilled against the disbelievers
36:71  Have they not seen how We have created for them of Our handiwork the cattle, so that they are their owners
36:72  And have subdued them unto them, so that some of them they have for riding, some for food
36:73  Benefits and (divers) drinks have they from them. Will they not then give thanks
36:74  And they have taken (other) gods beside Allah, in order that they may be helped
36:75  It is not in their power to help them; but they (the worshippers) are unto them a host in arms
36:76  So let not their speech grieve thee (O Muhammad). Lo! We know what they conceal and what proclaim
36:77  Hath not man seen that We have created him from a drop of seed? Yet lo! he is an open opponent
36:78  And he hath coined for Us a similitude, and hath forgotten the fact of his creation, saying: Who will revive these bones when they have rotted away
36:79  Say: He will revive them Who produced them at the first, for He is Knower of every creation
36:80  Who hath appointed for you fire from the green tree, and behold! ye kindle from it
36:81  Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the like of them? Aye, that He is! for He is the All-Wise Creator
36:82  But His command, when He intendeth a thing, is only that He saith unto it: Be! and it is
36:83  Therefor Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the dominion over all things! Unto Him ye will be brought back
