truly, thou art
among the ones who are sent
sent down successively by The Almighty, The Compassionate that
thou warnest a folk whose fathers were
not warned, so they were ones who were heedless.
Certainly, the saying was realized against most of them for they believe not.
We laid yokes on their necks up to the chins, so that they are
ones who are stiff-necked.
And We laid in advance of them an embankment and behind them an embankment. Then, We covered them so they perceive not.
And equal it is
to them whether thou warn them, or thou warn them not. They will not believe.
Thou hast only warned whoever followed the Remembrance and dreaded The Merciful in the unseen, so give him good tidings of forgiveness and a generous compensation.
Truly, We give life to the dead and We write down what they put forward and their effects. We counted everything in a clear record.
And propound a parable for them: The Companions of the Town when ones who were sent drew near them.
When We sent to them two, they denied them both, so We replenished them with the third. And they said: Truly, We are
ones who are sent to you.
They said: You are
nothing but mortals like ourselves and The Merciful caused not to descend anything. You are but lying!
They said: Our Lord knows that we are
ones who are sent to you.
On us is
only the delivering of the clear message.
They said: Truly, we augured ill of you. If you refrain not yourselves, we will, certainly, stone you. Certainly, a painful punishment will afflict you from us.
They said: Ones who auger ill will be
with you! Is it
because you were reminded? Nay! You are
a folk, ones who are excessive.
A man drew near from the farther part of the city, coming eagerly. He said: O my folk! Follow the ones who are sent!
Follow whoever asks not of you any compensation and they are
ones who are truly guided.
What is it
for me that I worship not Him Who originated me and to Whom you will be returned?
Will I take gods to myself other than He when, if The Merciful wants any harm for me, their intercession will not avail me at all nor will they save me.
Truly, I would, then, be clearly going astray.
Truly, I believed in your Lord so hear me!
It was said: Enter the Garden. He said: O would that my folk know
that my Lord forgave me and made me one who is honored!
After him We caused not to descend on his folk an army from heaven, nor had We been ones who need to cause to descend again.
It would be but one Cry and that is when they were
ones who are silent and still.
O how regrettable of the servants! A Messenger approaches them not, but they had been ridiculing him.
Consider they not how many generations We caused to perish before them who, truly, return not to them.
And, truly, all of them will be altogether, ones who are charged in Our Presence.
And a sign for them is
the dead body of the earth. We gave life to it and We brought out grain from it so that they eat from it.
We made in them gardens of date palm trees and grapevines and We caused a spring to gush forth in it
so that they may eat of the fruit from there that are not what their hands did. Will they, then, not give thanks?
Glory be to Him Who created pairs, all of them, of what the earth causes to develop as well as of themselves and of what they know not!
And a sign for them is the nighttime. We pluck the daytime from it and that is when they are ones in darkness!
And the sun runs to a resting place for it. That is foreordained by The Almighty, The Knowing.
And for the moon We ordained mansions until it reverted like an ripe aged, dry, date stalk.
It is not fit and proper for the sun to overtake the moon nor the nighttime one to take the lead over
the daytime. They each swim in an orbit.
A sign for them is that We carried their offspring in a laden boat.
And We created for them of its like that they ride.
And if We will, We drown them with
none for them to whom they cry aloud for help nor will they be saved
unless it be a mercy from Us and as an enjoyment for a while.
And when it was said to them: Be Godfearing of what is
in advance of you and what is
behind you, so that perhaps you will find mercy,
there never approaches them any sign from the signs of their Lord, but they had been ones who turn aside from it.
And when it was said to them: Spend of whatever God provided you, those who were ungrateful said to those who believed: Will we feed him whom He would have fed, if He wills? You are nothing, but in a clear going astray.
And they say: When is
this promise if you had been ones who are sincere?
They expect but one Cry which will take them while they strive against one another.
Then, they will not be able to leave a legacy nor will they return to their people.
And the trumpet would be blown! That is when they will be sliding down to their Lord from their tombs.
They would say: Woe on us! Who raised us up from our place of sleep? This is what The Merciful promised and the ones who are sent were sincere.
It would be but one Cry. That is when they will be in Our Presence altogether, ones who are charged.
This Day no soul will be
wronged at all nor will you be given recompense but for what you had been doing.
Truly, the Companions of the Garden that Day are
ones who are joyful in their
They and their spouses, in shade on raised benches, ones who are reclining.
They will have
in it sweet fruits and they will have
whatever they call for:
Peace! A saying from the Compassionate Lord.
And be separated on this Day, O ones who sin!
Make I not a compact with you, O Children of Adam, that you not worship Satan? Truly, he is a clear enemy
and that you should worship Me. This is a straight path.
And, certainly, He caused to go astray many an array of you. Be you not, then, reasonable?
This is hell which you had been promised.
Roast in it this Day because you had been ungrateful.
On this Day We will seal over their mouths and their hands will speak to Us and their feet will bear witness to what they had been earning.
And if We will, We would, certainly, have obliterated their eyes. Then, they would race towards the path. How would they have perceived?
And if We will, We would, certainly, have transformed their ability. Then, they would not have been able to pass on, nor would they return.
And he to whom We give a long life, We bend him over in his constitution. Will they not, then, be reasonable?
We taught him not poetry, nor is it fit and proper for him. It is but a Remembrance and a clear Recitation
to warn whoever had been living and that the saying be realized against the ones who are ungrateful.
Consider they not how We created for them—out of what Our hands did— flocks, so they were of them ones who are owners?
And We subdued them for them so that of them, some are
riding animals and some of them, they eat.
And they have
profits from them and providing a place from which to drink. Will they not, then, give thanks?
And they took to themselves gods other than God so that perhaps they will be helped.
They are not able to help them while they are
to them as a charged army.
So let not their saying dishearten thee.• Truly, We know what they keep secret and what they speak openly.
Consider not the human being that We created him from seminal fluid? That is when he is a clear adversary.
He propounded parables for Us and forgot his own creation. He said: Who will give life to these bones when they decayed?
Say: He will give life to them Who caused them to grow the first time and He is
The Knowing of every creation.
He Who made for you fire out of a green tree. That is when you kindle from it.
Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth One Who Has Power to create the like of them? Yea! And He is
The Knowing Creator.
Truly, His command when He wanted a thing is
but to say to it: Be! Then, it is!
Then, Glory be to Him in whose hand is
the Kingdom of everything! And to Him you will be returned.
