38:1  S??d (s?). By the Qur ?n, full of admonition,
38:2  Nay, those who disbelieve are in false pride and opposition.
38:3  How many a generation We destroyed before them, then they cried, but time was none to escape.
38:4  And they did wonder that a Warner from among themselves came to them, and the disbelievers said: This is a lying sorcerer .
38:5  Has he made gods (all) into One God? This is indeed a strange thing!
38:6  And the chiefs from them departed, (saying:) Go! and be steadfast to your gods; this is a thing to be desired.
38:7  We never heard (the like) of this in the former creed; this is nothing but a made up tale.
38:8  Has the Reminder been sent down (only) on him out of us all? Nay, they are in doubt about My Reminder, nay, they have not yet tasted My chastisement.
38:9  Or have they the treasures of the Mercy of your Lord, the Mighty, the Greater Bestower?
38:10  Or is theirs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them? Then let them ascend by any means.
38:11  A defeated host are the factions that are there.
38:12  Before them, the people of Noah, and ?d, and Pharaoh, the lord of stakes, belied (messengers),
38:13  And Tham?d and the people of Lot, and the dwellers of the Thicket, these were the parties (who also rejected the messengers).
38:14  There was none of them but belied the messengers, so just was My retribution.
38:15  And these (infidels) do not wait aught but a single blast, which (when it comes) will brook no delay.
38:16  And they (ridiculously) say: O our Lord! Hasten on to us our portion before the Day of Reckoning.
38:17  Bear patiently what they say, and remember Our servant David, the possessor of power, verily he ever turned (to Allah).
38:18  Verily We subjected the mountains to give glory with him at the evening and the sunrise,
38:19  And the birds assemble together, every one to him reverting;
38:20  And We strengthened his kingdom, and gave him wisdom and a clear judgment.
38:21  And has the story of the litigants come to you when they climbed the wall into the (David s) prayer chamber?
38:22  When they entered to David, and he was frightened of them, they said: Fear not, (we are) two litigants, one of us has exceeded against the other, so decide between us with truth, and treat not unjustly, and guide us unto the right way.
38:23  Verily this my brother has ninety nine ewes, and I have (only) one ewe, but he says: Give her into my charge and he overcame me in the argument.
38:24  (David) said: Indeed he has been unjust to you in demanding your ewe to add her to his own ewes; and verily many of the associates are wrongfully unto one another, save those who believe and do good deeds, and few are they! And David perceived that We had tried him, so he sought forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down bowing, and he repented.
38:25  So We forgave him that (lapse), and verily for him, with Us is a nearness and an excellent resort.
38:26  ODavid! Verily We have appointed you a vicegerent in the earth, so judge between the people with justice and do not follow (vain) desire for it will mislead you from the way of Allah; (as for) those who go astray from the path of Allah, they shall surely have a severe punishment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.
38:27  And We did not create the heaven and the earth and what is between them in vain; that is the opinion of those who disbelieve; then woe to those who disbelieve on account of the Fire (of Hell)!
38:28  Shall We treat those who believe and do righteous deeds like the mischief makers in the earth? Or shall We treat the pious like the wicked?
38:29  (The Qur ?n) is a blessed Book which We have sent down unto you, that they may meditate on its verses and that men of understanding may receive admonition.
38:30  And We gave to David Solomon, an excellent servant (he was)! Verily he was a penitent.
38:31  When there were brought before him in the evening light-footed courses,
38:32  Then he said: Verily I love the love of good things, (these horses), for the sake of the remembrance of my Lord, (the watching of parade continued) until they (the horses) got hidden in the veil.
38:33  (Then he ordered:) Bring them (horses) back to me . And he began to rub (their) legs and necks.
38:34  And certainly We did try Solomon, and We cast on his throne a (mere) body; then he repented.
38:35  He said: My Lord! Forgive me and grant me a dominion such as shall not be fit anyone after me, verily You are the Bounteous (without measure).
38:36  So We made subservient unto him the wind; that it ran at his command, softly, wherever he desired,
38:37  And the Satans, every builder and diver,
38:38  And others (of the Satans) fettered in chains.
38:39  (We said:) This is Our free gift, therefore bestow or withhold without reckoning.
38:40  And verily for him unto Us is a nearness and an excellent resort.
38:41  And remember Our servant Job, when he called to his Lord Verily, Satan has afflicted me with toil and torment .
38:42  (We told him:) Stamp with your foot, here is a cool washing-place and a drink .
38:43  And we gave him his family and the like of them with them as a mercy from Us, and a reminder for those with understanding.
38:44  And (We said to him:) Take in your hand a bunch of (thin) stick and strike (your wife) with it, and do not break your oath. Verily We found him patient, an excellent servant. Verily he was a penitent.
38:45  And remember Our servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, men of might and insight.
38:46  Verily We purified them by a pure quality, the remembrance of the Abode.
38:47  And truly they are with Us of the elect, the good ones.
38:48  And remember Ishmael and Elisha and Zulkifl, they all were of the good ones.
38:49  This is a reminder; and verily for the pious there is an excellent resort.
38:50  Gardens of perpetuity, whereof the gates are open to them.
38:51  Wherein they recline, and wherein they call for fruits abundant, and drink.
38:52  And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances, (companions) of equal age.
38:53  This is what you are promised for the Day of Reckoning.
38:54  Verily this is Our sustenance for which there is no end.
38:55  This (for the righteous), and verily for the wicked ones there is an evil resort.
38:56  Hell, wherein they enter, an evil is the place,
38:57  This water is boiling and pus, so let them taste it.
38:58  And other punishments of a similar kind to match them!
38:59  (To their leaders it shall be said:) This is a group (of your followers) rushing in with you. (They say:) There is no welcome for them! Verily they shall enter the Fire !
38:60  They say: No, it is you have no welcome: you forwarded it for us; how evil is the abode .
38:61  They say: Our Lord! Whoever has forwarded this for us, increase him a twofold chastisement in the Fire .
38:62  And they say: What has happened to us that we do not see the men whom we counted among the wicked ones?
38:63  Did we take them (wrongly) for a laughing-stock or have our eyes missed them?
38:64  Verily the disputing of the inhabitants of the Fire is a Fact.
38:65  Say: I am only a Warner and there is no god but Allah, the One, the Almighty ,
38:66  Lord of the heavens and the earth, and what is between them two, the Almighty, the Most Forgiving.
38:67  Say: It is a message of (great) importance,
38:68  From which you are turning away .
38:69  I had no knowledge of the High Council when they disputed.
38:70  Naught is revealed to me save that I am a clear Warner.
38:71  When your Lord said to the angels: I am about to create a mortal out of mire.
38:72  When I have completed him and breathed into him of My spirit, fall you down in prostration unto him.
38:73  Then the angels did fall prostrating all together,
38:74  Save Iblis, he was proud and he was of the disbelievers.
38:75  (Allah) said: O Iblis! What prevented you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with My hands? Are you proud or are you of the exalted ones?
38:76  (Iblis) said: I am better than he: You created me from fire and You created him from clay .
38:77  (Allah) said: Then get out of it for verily you are driven away .
38:78  And verily on you shall be My Curse till the Day of Judgment.
38:79  He said: O Lord! Then respite me till the Day they shall be raised,
38:80  (Allah) said: Verily you are of the respited ones.
38:81  Until the day of the known time .
38:82  (Iblis) said: Then by Your glory, I shall pervert them all together ,
38:83  Except Your servants among them that are sincere.
38:84  (Allah) said: Then it is the truth; and the truth do I speak,
38:85  Certainly I will fill Hell with you, and with whoever of them follows you, all together .
38:86  (O Prophet!) say: No reward do I ask of you for it, nor am I of the impostors.
38:87  It is naught but a Reminder unto the Worlds,
38:88  And you shall certainly know its tiding after a while .
