36:1  Ya Sin
36:2  By the Qur'an, full of wisdom
36:3  Thou art, indeed, one of the Messengers
36:4  On the right path
36:5  This is a revelation from the Mighty, the Merciful
36:6  That thou mayest warn a people whose fathers were not warned, and so they are heedless
36:7  Surely, the word has proved true against most of them, for they believe not
36:8  WE have put round their necks collars reaching unto their chins, so that their heads are raised up
36:9  And WE have set a barrier before them and a barrier behind them, and have covered them over, so that they cannot see
36:10  Alike it is to them whether thou warn them or warn them not; they will not believe
36:11  Thou canst warn only him who would follow the Reminder and fear the Gracious God in secret. So give him the glad tidings of forgiveness and a noble reward
36:12  Surely, WE alone give life to the dead, and WE write down that which they send forward and that which they leave behind; and all things WE have recorded in a clear Book
36:13  And set forth to them the parable of a people of the town, when the Messengers came to it
36:14  When WE sent to them two Messengers they rejected them both; so WE strengthened them by a third; and they said, `Verily, we have been sent to you as Messengers.
36:15  They replied, `You are only human beings like us and the Gracious God has not revealed anything. You are only lying.
36:16  They said, `Our Lord knows that we are, indeed HIS Messengers to you
36:17  `And our duty is only plain delivery of the Message.
36:18  The disbelievers said, `Surely, we augur evil fortune from you; if you desist not, we will, certainly, stone you, and a painful punishment will, surely, befall you at our hands.
36:19  The Messengers replied, `Your evil fortune is with your ownselves. Do you say this because you have been admonished? Nay, you are a people transgressing all bounds.
36:20  And from the farthest part of the town there came a man running. He said, `O my People, follow the Messengers
36:21  `Follow those who ask of you no reward, and who are rightly guided
36:22  `And why should I not worship HIM Who has created me, and unto Whom you will be brought back
36:23  `Shall I take others beside HIM as gods? If the Gracious God should intend me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they rescue me
36:24  `In that case I should, indeed, be in manifest error
36:25  `I believe in your Lord; so listen to me.
36:26  It was said to him, Do thou enter Paradise.' He said, `O, would that my people knew
36:27  `How graciously my Lord has granted me forgiveness and has made me of the honoured ones !
36:28  And WE sent not down against his people, after him, any host from heaven, nor do WE send down any such
36:29  It was but a single blast and lo ! they were extinct
36:30  Alas for my servants ! there comes not a Messenger to them but they mock at him
36:31  Do they not see how many generations WE have destroyed before them, and that they never come back to them
36:32  And all of them, gathered together, will certainly be brought before US
36:33  And the dead earth is a Sign for them; WE quicken it and bring forth therefrom grain, of which they eat
36:34  And WE have placed in it Gardens of date-palms and grapes, and WE have caused springs to gush forth therein
36:35  That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and it was not there hands that made them grow up. Will they not then be grateful
36:36  Holy is HE Who created all things in pairs, of what the earth grows and of themselves, and of what they know not
36:37  And a Sign for them is the night from which WE strip off the day, and lo ! they are left in darkness
36:38  And the sun is moving on to its determined goal. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing God
36:39  And for the moon WE have appointed stages, till it becomes again like an old dry twig of a palm-tree
36:40  It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day. All of them float smoothly in an orbit
36:41  And a Sign for them is that WE carry their offspring in the laden ships
36:42  And WE will create for them the like thereof whereon they will ride
36:43  And if WE so willed, WE could drown them; then they would have no one to succour them, nor would they be rescued
36:44  Except through mercy from US and a provision for a time
36:45  And when it is said to them, `Guard yourselves against that which is before you through Prayer and that which is behind you through repentance, that you may receive mercy,' they turn away
36:46  And there comes not to them any Sign out of the Signs 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 ALLAH would have fed, if HE had so willed? You are but in manifest error.
36:48  And they say, `When will this promise of punishment be fulfilled, if you are truthful?
36:49  They are waiting only for a single blast which will seize them while they are still disputing
36:50  And they will not be able to make a will nor will they return to their families
36:51  And the trumpet shall be blown, and lo ! from the graves they will hasten on to their Lord
36:52  They will say to one another, `O woe to us ! who has raised us from our place of sleep? This is what the Gracious God had promised, and the Messengers, indeed, spoke the truth.
36:53  It will be one blast and lo ! they will all be brought before US
36:54  And on that day no soul will be wronged in aught; nor will you be requited but for what you used to do
36:55  Verily, the inmates of heaven will, on that day, be happy in their occupation
36:56  They and their wives will be in pleasant shades, reclining on raised couches
36:57  They will have fruits therein, and they will have whatever they call for
36:58  They will be greeted with Peace - a word of greeting from the Merciful Lord
36:59  And God will say, `Separate yourselves from the righteous this day, O ye guilty ones
36:60  `Did I not enjoin on you, O ye sons of Adam, that you worship not Satan - for he is to you an open enemy
36:61  `And that you worship ME? This is the right path
36:62  `And he did lead astray a great multitude of you. Why did you not then understand
36:63  `This is Hell which you were promised
36:64  `Enter it this day because you disbelieved.
36:65  This day we shall put a seal on their mouths, and their hands will speak to US, and their feet will bear witness to what they had earned
36:66  And if WE had so willed, WE could have put out their eyes, then they would have rushed unseeing to find the way. But, how could they see
36:67  And if WE had so willed, WE could have transformed them in their places, then they would not be able to move forward or turn back
36:68  And him whom WE grant long life - WE revert him to a weak state in creation. Will they not then understand
36:69  And WE have not taught him poetry, nor does it behove him to be a poet. It is but a reminder and a Qur'an that expounds and makes things plain
36:70  That it may warn all who are alive, and that the decree of ALLAH may be fulfilled concerning the disbelievers
36:71  Do they not see that, among the things which Our hands have wrought, WE have created for them cattle of which they are masters
36:72  And WE have subjected the same to them, so that some of them they use for riding, and of the flesh of some they eat
36:73  And in them they have other uses, and also drinks. Will they not, then, be grateful
36:74  And they have taken other gods beside ALLAH that they might be helped
36:75  But they are not able to help them. On the contrary, they will be brought before God in a body to bear witness against them
36:76  So let not their speech grieve thee. Verily, WE know what they conceal and what they proclaim
36:77  Does not man see that WE have created him from a mere sperm-drop? Then lo ! he is an open quarreler
36:78  And he coins similitudes for US and forgets his own creation. He says, `Who can quicken the bones when they are decayed?
36:79  Say, `HE, Who created them the first time, will quicken them; and HE knows well the condition of every created thing
36:80  HE Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, and behold, you kindle from it
36:81  Has not HE who created the heavens and the earth the power to create the like of them?' Yea, and HE is, indeed, the Supreme Creator, the All-Knowing
36:82  Verily, HIS command, when HE intends a thing, is only that HE says concerning it, `Be,' and it comes into being
36:83  So Holy is HE, in Whose hand is the dominion of all things. And to HIM will you be brought back
