S', and the Quran that contains the remembrance
Indeed, those who have disbelieved are in false pride and defiance
How many a generation have We destroyed before them. And they called out when it was far too late
And they were surprised that a warner has come to them from among themselves. And the rejecters said: "This is a magician, a liar."
"Has he made the gods into One god This is indeed a strange thing!"
And the leaders among them went out: "Walk away, and remain patient to your gods. This thing can be turned back."
"We never heard of this from the people before us. This is but an innovation."
"Has the remembrance been sent down to him, from between all of us!" Indeed, they are doubtful of My reminder. Indeed, they have not yet tasted My retribution
Or do they have the treasures of mercy of your Lord, the Noble, the Grantor
Or do they possess the dominion of the heavens and the Earth, and all that is between them Then let them bring their own solutions
The opposing troops they have gathered will be defeated
Disbelieving before them were the people of Noah, 'Aad, and Pharaoh with the planks
And Thamud, and the people of Lot, the dwellers of the Woods; such were the opponents
Each of them disbelieved the messengers, therefore My retribution came to be
And what these people are waiting for is a single scream, from which they will not recover
And they said: "Our Lord, hasten for us our punishment, before the Day of Reckoning."
Be patient to what they say, and recall Our servant David, the resourceful. He was obedient
We committed the mountains to glorify with him, during dusk and dawn
And the birds were gathered; all were obedient to him
And We strengthened his kingship, and We gave him the wisdom and the ability to make sound judgement
Did the news come to you of the disputing party who came over into the temple enclosur
When they entered upon David, he was startled by them. They said: "Have no fear. We are two who have disputed, and one has wronged the other, so judge between us with truth, and do not wrong us, and guide us to the right path."
"This is my brother and he owns ninety nine lambs, while I own one lamb; so he said to me: 'Let me take care of it' and he pressured me."
He said: "He has wronged you by asking to combine your lambs with his lambs. And many who mix their properties take advantage of one another, except those who believe and do good works, and these are very few." And David guessed that We had tested him, so he sought forgiveness from his Lord, and fell down kneeling, and repented
So We forgave him in this matter. And for him with Us is a near position, and a beautiful abode
O David, We have made you a successor on Earth. Therefore, you shall judge among the people with truth, and do not follow desire, lest it diverts you from the path of God. Indeed, those who stray off the path of God will have a severe retribution for forgetting the Day of Reckoning
And We did not create the heaven and the Earth, and everything between them, in vain. Such is the thinking of those who rejected. Therefore, woe to those who have rejected from the Fire
Or shall We treat those who believe and do good works as We treat those who make corruption on Earth Or shall We treat the righteous as the wicke
A Scripture that We have sent down to you, that is blessed, so that they may reflect upon its verses, and so that those with intelligence will take heed
And to David We granted Solomon. What an excellent and obedient servant
When, during sunset, well trained horses were displayed before him
He said: "I enjoyed the good of materialism more than I enjoyed remembering my Lord, until it became totally dark!"
"Send them back." He then rubbed their legs and necks
And We tested Solomon and placed a corpse on his throne, but he then repented
He said: "My Lord, forgive me, and grant me a kingship that will never be attained by anyone after me. You are the Grantor."
So, We committed the wind to run by his command, raining gently where he directed it
And the devils, building and diving
And others, held by restraints
"This is Our gift, so you may spend or withhold, without any repercussions."
And he has deserved a near position with Us, and a wonderful abode
And recall Our servant Job, when he called upon his Lord: "The devil has afflicted me with an illness and pain."
"Strike with your foot, here is a cold spring to wash with and to drink."
And We restored his family to him along with a group like them, as a mercy from Us; and a reminder for those who possess intelligence
"And take in your hand a bundle and travel with it, and do not break your oath." We found him steadfast. What a good servant! He was obedient
And recall Our servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They were resourceful, and with vision
We had chosen them to enforce awareness of the Hereafter
And they are with Us of the elite, the best
And recall Ishmael, Elisha, and Isaiah; all are among the best
This is a reminder, and the righteous will have a wonderful abode
The gardens of Eden, whose gates will be open for them
Reclining therein, they will be invited to many fruits and drinks
And with them are attendants with a splendid look and of equal age
This is what you have been promised for the Day of Reckoning
Such is Our provisions, it does not run out
This is so, and for the transgressors is a miserable destiny
Hell is where they burn. What a miserable abode
This is so, and let them taste a boiling drink and bitter food
And other multitudes that are similar to that
Here is another group to be thrown into Hell with you. "We have no welcome for them, for they shall burn in the Fire."
They said: "No, you are the ones without welcome. It was you who misled us, so here is the result!"
They said: "Our Lord, whoever brought this upon us, then double their retribution in the Fire!"
And they said: "Why do we not see some men whom we used to count among the wicked"
"Did we mock them erroneously, or have our eyes failed to find them"
Surely, this is in truth the feuding of the people of Hell
Say: "I am but a warner; and there is no god besides God, the One, the Supreme."
"The Lord of the heavens and the Earth, and everything between them; the Noble, the Forgiving."
Say: "It is an awesome news."
"From which you turn away."
"I had no knowledge of the command up high, that they had quarrelled."
"It is only inspired to me that I am a clear warner."
For your Lord said to the Angels: "I am creating a human being from clay."
"So when I have evolved him, and breathed into him from My spirit, then you shall submit to him."
The Angels submitted, all of them
Except Satan; he turned arrogant, and became one of the rejecters
He said: "O Satan, what prevented you from submitting to what I have created by My hands Are you too arrogant Or are you one of those exalted"
He said: "I am better than he; You created me from fire, and created him from clay."
He said: "Therefore exit from it, you are outcast."
"And My curse will be upon you until the Day of Judgment."
He said: "My Lord, respite me till the Day they are resurrected."
He said: "You are respited."
"Until the appointed Day."
He said: "By Your majesty, I will mislead them all."
"Except for Your servants who are loyal."
He said: "The truth, and the truth is what I say"
"That I will fill Hell with you and all those who follow you."
Say: "I do not ask you for any wage, nor am I a fraud."
"It is but a reminder for the worlds."
"And you will come to know its news after awhile."
