36:1  YA SIN
36:2  I call to witness the Qur'an, custodian of all laws, -
36:3  That you are indeed one of those sen
36:4  On a path that is straight, -
36:5  A revelation from the mighty, ever-merciful (God)
36:6  That you may warn a people whose ancestors had never been warned, who are therefore heedless
36:7  The sentence is surely justified against most of them, for they do not believe
36:8  We will certainly put iron collars on their heel's which will come up to their chins, so that they will not be able to raise their heads
36:9  And We shall raise a barrier in front of them and a barrier behind them, and cover them over so that they will not be able to see
36:10  Whether you warn them or do not warn, it is all the same; they will not believe
36:11  You can only warn him who listens to the warning and fears Ar-Rahman secretly. So give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward
36:12  It is We indeed who bring back the dead to life, and write down what they send ahead (of their deeds), and traces that they leave behind. We keep an account of all things in a lucid register
36:13  Narrate to them the example of the people of the city when the messengers came to it
36:14  When We sent two of them they called them liars; so We sent a third to strengthen them. "We have been sent to you," they said
36:15  "You are only men like us," they replied; "Ar-Rahman has not sent down any thing. You are speaking only lies."
36:16  (The messengers) said: "Our Lord knows that we have been sent to you
36:17  Our duty is to convey the message clearly."
36:18  They rejoined: "We feel you augur ill. If you do not desist, we shall stone you to death, and inflict a grievous punishment on you."
36:19  (The messengers) said: "The augury is within your own selves. Do you (consider it a bad omen) that you should be warned? You are a people guilty of excess."
36:20  Then a man came running from the other side of the city. "O my people," he said, "follow the messengers
36:21  Follow those who do not ask for any recompense of you, and are rightly guided
36:22  Why should I not worship Him who brought me into being, to whom you will be brought back in the end
36:23  Should I take other gods apart from Him, who would neither be able to intercede for me nor save me if Ar-Rahman brings me harm
36:24  In that case I would surely be in clear error
36:25  I believe in your Lord, so listen to me."
36:26  (But they stoned him to death.) It was said to him: "Enter Paradise;" and he said: "If only my people kne
36:27  How my Lord has forgiven me and made me one of those who are honoured!"
36:28  We did not send down any army against his people from heaven, nor did We have to send one
36:29  There was just one blast, and they were extinguished
36:30  Alas for men! No apostle ever came to them but they made fun of him
36:31  Have they not seen how many generations have We destroyed before them who will not return again
36:32  They will all be brought together before Us
36:33  There is a sign in the dead earth for them which We quicken, and produce from it grain which they eat
36:34  We have laid out gardens of dates and grapes upon it, and made springs of water flow
36:35  So that they may eat of its fruit; yet it was not done by their hands. Then why do they not acknowledge thanks
36:36  All glory to Him who created pairs of everything that grows from the earth, and out of themselves, and other things they do not know
36:37  And there is a sign in the night for them. We strip off the day from it and they are left in darkness
36:38  While the sun keeps revolving in its orbit. This is the dispensation of the mighty, all-knowing (God)
36:39  We have determined the stations of the moon, so that (after its wanderings) it returns as a dried up inflorescent spike of dates
36:40  Neither can the sun overtake the moon, nor the night outpace the day: Each of them keeps coursing in its orbit
36:41  That We bore their progeny in the laden ark is a sign for them
36:42  And We made similar vessels for them to ride
36:43  We could have drowned them if We pleased, and none would have answered their cry for help, nor would they have been saved
36:44  Unless by Our benevolence, to reap advantage for a time
36:45  When it is said to them: "Beware of what is before you and what is past, that you may be treated with kindness;"
36:46  None of the signs of their Lord ever comes to them but they turn away from it
36:47  When they are told: "Spend of what God has given you," the unbelievers say to those who believe: "Why should we feed those whom God should have fed if He pleased?" You are only in palpable error
36:48  And they say: "When will this promise come to pass, if what you say is true?"
36:49  They are only waiting for a single blast that will seize them, but they will go on contending
36:50  Then they would not be able to make a will, or go back to their people
36:51  When the trumpet blast is sounded they will come out of their graves and hasten to their Lord
36:52  Saying: "Ah woe, who has roused us from our sleep?" This is what Ar-Rahman had promised, and whose truth the apostles had affirmed
36:53  It would be but a single blast of the trumpet, and they would all be arraigned before Us
36:54  No soul will be wronged the least that Day, nor would be recompensed but only for what it had done
36:55  Surely the inmates of Paradise will be engaged in pastimes
36:56  They and their companions will recline on couches in the shade
36:57  For them will be fruits and whatever they ask
36:58  "Peace" shall be the greeting from the merciful Lord
36:59  (And the guilty will be told:) "O sinners, separate yourselves this day
36:60  Did I not commit you, O children of Adam, not to worship Satan who is your acknowledged foe
36:61  But to serve Me; (that) this is the straight path
36:62  But he beguiled a great many of you. Why did you not then understand
36:63  This is the Hell that you were promised
36:64  Roast in it now for having disbelieved."
36:65  We shall seal their lips that day; and their hands will speak, their feet testify to what they had done
36:66  We could take away their sight if We pleased; then they would run around to find the way: But how then would they see
36:67  And if We pleased We could paralyse them in their tracks, and they would not be able to move forward or turn back
36:68  Whoever reaches old age, We reverse in natural disposition. Do they not have sense (to see)
36:69  We have not taught (Muhammad) to versify, nor is it worthy of him. This is nothing but a reminder and illuminating discourse
36:70  So that he may warn him who is alive and feels, and justify the word against those who do not believe
36:71  Do they not see the cattle among things We have fashioned by Our power, which they own
36:72  Whom We made subservient to them so that some of them they ride and some they eat
36:73  And they derive other advantages and drinks from them. Even then they do not offer thanks
36:74  And take other gods apart from God that they may perhaps give them help
36:75  They will not be able to help them and will be brought (to Us) as their levied troops
36:76  So be not grieved by what they say. We certainly know what they hide and disclose
36:77  Does not man see We created him from a drop of semen? Even then he becomes an open contender
36:78  And applies comparisons to Us, having forgotten his origin, and says: "Who can put life into decayed bones?"
36:79  Say: "He who created you the first time. He has knowledge of every creation
36:80  Who gave you fire from a green tree, with which you ignite the flame."
36:81  How can He who created the heavens and the earth not be able to create others like them? Why not? He is the real creator all-knowing
36:82  When He wills a thing He has only to say: "Be," and it is
36:83  So all glory to Him who holds all power over everything, to whom you will go back in the end
