By the Judicious Qur’ān
That you are indeed one of the Messengers
(This Glorious Qur’ān) is the Revelation in the Knowledge of Almighty, the Most Merciful
So that you may admonish a people whose forefathers were not admonished, and hence they are quite heedless (of truth).
And Verily, the Word, for punishment, has already proved true against most of them, so they will never adhere to Faith.
Surely We had bound their hands to their necks with shackles reaching up to their chins so that they cannot bend their heads.
And We have set before them a barrier and a barrier behind them, then We have blinded their eyes and so they do not see.
Whether you admonish them or not, they have no tendency to live by Faith.
You can only admonish the one who follows the Qur'an, and shows honor and reverence for the True Merciful (God), (even) in secret. So give to him the glad tidings of Forgiveness and an extraordinary reward.
Most surely it is We Who revive the dead and record whatever they send before and whatever they leave behind. And We keep everything recorded in a clear writing.
And strike for them as a similitude: the people of the town, when Messengers (of Allâh) came to it:
When We sent to them two (Messengers), but they were inclined to deny both of them. Then We strengthened them with a third one who said to them: “We are indeed Messengers (of Allâh) to you”.
They said: “You are no more than human beings like us, and the True Merciful (God) has revealed nothing. You are only lying”.
The Messengers said: “Our Lord knows well that we are indeed (His) Messengers to you”.
Our mission is only to convey ( His Message) clearly".
They said: “We prognosticate an evil omen coming from you. And If it happens that you don’t put an end to (this nonsense), we will surely stone you (to death), and a painful punishment will definitely touch you from us”.
The Messengers replied: ”Your evil omen is with yourselves. Is it because you are admonished? Nay, but you are prodigals”.
There came from the furthermost part of the town a man running. He said: “O’ my people, follow the Messengers.
Follow those who ask no reward of you and are on the right path.
Why should I not worship the One who created me and to whom you shall all be returned?
Will I take others besides Him as gods? If the True Merciful (God) was to afflict me with harm, their intercession won’t profit me at all, nor will they be able to save me?
Surely, I should then be in utter deception.
Indeed, I affirm my Faith in your Lord, so hear me”.
It was said (to him after they had murdered him), "Enter Al-Jannah!" He said: "Ah, would that my people had known
That my Lord has forgiven me and that He has placed me among the honored ones!”
And We didn’t send down against his people an army (of Angels) from the heaven (to destroy them) after his death, nor do We ever send down.
It was but a single Cry and lo! they were all extinguished.
Woe betide the servants! Whenever a Messenger comes to them, they poke fun at him.
Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them? Indeed, they shall never return to them.
And all of them will definitely be brought before Us.
And a Sign for them is the dead land: We revive it and bring forth grain from which they eat.
We make therein gardens of date-palms and grapes and cause the springs of the great deep to burst forth therein
So that they may eat of the fruit thereof. But it was not their hands that made it. Will they not then be grateful?
All Glory Be To Him Who has created pairs of all things - of what the earth grows, of their own species and other creations that they don’t encompass in Knowledge.
Another sign for them is the night. We pull off the day from it, and behold they are left in darkness.
And the sun runs on its destination. That is the ordinance of the Almighty, the All-Knowing.
And the moon, We have ordained for it specific phases until it ends up looking like an old date branch.
It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. Each one is swimming in a sphere.
Another sign for them is that we carried their offspring in the laden Ark.
And We have created for them similar things on which they ride.
And if We will, We can (easily) drown them. Then there will be no salvage for them, nor can they be rescued-
Except as a Mercy from Us and provision for a while.
And When it is said to them: "Beware of that which is that which is before you and behind you in order that you may obtain Mercy”.
And whenever a Sign of the Signs of their Lord is shown to them, they turn away from it.
And When it is said to them: “Spend from that which Allâh has provided for you", those who voluntarily and consciously refuse to Yield to the Truth say to those who adhere to Faith: “What! Shall we feed those whom Allâh, if he willed, He would feed? Most surely you are in naught but utter deception.
And they say: "When will this promise be if you are truthful?”
They await but a single Cry, which will overtake them while they are yet quarrelling with each other.
Then they won’t be able to make bequest or return to their family.
And the Trumpet will be blown. Then behold, they will hasten on from their sepulchers to their Lord.
They will say: "Woe betide us! Who has raised us up from our resting place?” (It will be said to them): "This is what the True Merciful (God) promised, and the Messengers spoke the truth!"
It will be but a single Cry. Then behold, they are all brought before Us.
So today, none will be wronged in the least, and you shall be requited only for what you were inclined to do.
Verily the Denizens of Al-Jannah shall be on that day in utter delight.
They and their spouses will be in delightful shades, reclining on couches.
They will have therein (different types of) fruits and whatever they desire.
“Peace”: A word from the Lord, the Most Merciful.
(The Lord will command): “As for you, O’ Ungodly Sinners, stand apart from the others on this day!"
Did I not make a covenant with you, O’ Children of Adam, that you should not worship the Devil - surely He is your open enemy -
And that you should worship Me (in the way I want you to worship Me)? That is the straight path.
And most certainly he deceived a large number of people. Didn't you have conscious thoughts at least in this sense?
This, then, is Gehenna which you were promised!
Burn therein today for your persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth.
This day We set a seal on their mouths, letting their hands speak to Us and their feet testify to what they were inclined to do.
And had We willed, We would surely have obliterated their eyesight, then they would struggle to find the path, but how would they see?
And had We willed, We would surely have transformed them (into animals or objects) in their place. So they would not be able to precede or turn back.
And whomever We give long life, We cause him to revert to weakness. Didn't you have conscious thoughts at least in this sense?
And We have not taught him the (art of) poetry. It is not appropriate for him (to be a poet). It is not but a Scripture and irrefutable Qur’ān
So that he may admonish whoever is alive, and that the Word may be fulfilled against those who have no tendency to live by Faith.
Have they not seen that We created cattle for them, out of what Our hands have wrought, and then they are their owners?
And We have subjected the cattle to them. Some of them they ride and others they eat.
They have other advantages from them, as well as beverages. Will they not then show gratitude?
Yet they have taken gods, other than Allâh, haply they might be helped.
In fact, they are incapable of helping them even though they made themselves soldiers serving them.
So don’t let their words sadden you. Most certainly We have full knowledge of whatsoever they hide and whatsoever they disclose.
Doesn’t man see that We have created him from a semen-drop? Then lo! He is a compulsive conversationalist!
And he strikes for Us a similitude and forgets his own creation. He says: "Who will give life to these bones when they have disintegrated to dust?"
Say: "The one who will give life to them is the One who initiated them in the first time. He has full knowledge of all creation.
The one Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, and then from it you kindle.
Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the like of them? Yea! He is indeed the Supreme Creator, the Omniscient.
Verily, His Command, when He intends to create a thing, is only to say to it, ‘Be’, and there it is.
So All Glory Be To Him in Whose Hand is the sovereignty of all things, and to Whom you will be all returned."
