(Word by Word) rendition of Surah The Heights, The Elevated Places(al-A`raf)
7:1  Alif Laam Meem Saad.
7:2  A Book revealed to you so (let) not be in your breast any uneasiness from it that you warn with it, and a reminder for the believers.
7:3  Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord, and (do) not follow besides Him any allies. Little (is) what you remember.
7:4  And how many of a city We destroyed it, and came to it Our punishment (at) night or (while) they were sleeping at noon.
7:5  Then not was their plea when came to them Our punishment except that they said, "Indeed, we were wrongdoers."
7:6  Then surely We will question those (to) whom were sent to them (Messengers), and surely We will question the Messengers.
7:7  Then surely We will narrate to them with knowledge, and not We absent.
7:8  And the weighing that day (will be) the truth. So whose - (will be) heavy his scales, then those [they] (will be) the successful ones.
7:9  And (for) those (will be) light his scales, so those (will be) the ones who lost, themselves because they were to Our Verses (doing) injustice.
7:10  And certainly We established you in the earth and We made for you in it livelihood. Little (is) what you (are) grateful.
7:11  And certainly We created you then We fashioned you. Then We said to the Angels, "Prostrate to Adam," So they prostrated, except Iblees. He was not of those who prostrated.
7:12  (Allah) said, "What prevented you that not you prostrate when I commanded you?" (Shaitaan) said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and You created him from clay."
7:13  (Allah) said, "Then go down from it, for not it is for you that you be arrogant in it. So get out; indeed, you (are) of the disgraced ones."
7:14  (Shaitaan) said, "Give me respite till (the) Day they are raised up."
7:15  (Allah) said, "Indeed, you (are) of the ones given respite."
7:16  (Shaitaan) said, "Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit for them (on) Your straight path.
7:17  Then surely, I will come to them from before them and from behind them and from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them grateful."
7:18  (Allah) said, "Get out of it disgraced and expelled. Certainly, whoever follows you among them, surely, I will fill Hell with you all.
7:19  And O Adam! Dwell, you and your wife, (in) the Garden, and you both eat from wherever you both wish, but (do) not approach [both of you] this [the] tree lest you both be among the wrongdoers."
7:20  Then whispered to both of them the Shaitaan to make apparent to both of them what was concealed from both of them of their shame. And he said, "(Did) not forbid you both your Lord from this [the] tree except that you two become Angels or you two become of the immortals."
7:21  And he swore (to) both of them, "Indeed, I am to both of you among the sincere advisors."
7:22  So he made both of them fall by deception. Then when they both tasted the tree, became apparent to both of them their shame, and they began (to) fasten over themselves from (the) leaves (of) the Garden. And called them both their Lord, "Did not I forbid you both from this [the] tree and [I] say to both of you, that [the] Shaitaan (is) to both of you an open enemy?"
7:23  Both of them "Our Lord we have wronged ourselves, and if not You forgive [for] us and have mercy (on) us, surely, we will be among the losers."
7:24  (Allah) said, "Get down some of you to some others (as) enemy. And for you in the earth (is) a dwelling place and livelihood for a time."
7:25  He said, "In it you will live and in it you will die and from it you will be brought forth."
7:26  O Children (of) Adam! Verily We have sent down to you clothing, it covers your shame and (as) an adornment. But the clothing (of) [the] righteousness - that (is) best. That (is) from (the) Signs of Allah so that they may remember.
7:27  O Children (of) Adam! (Let) not tempt you [the] Shaitaan as he drove out your parents from Paradise, stripping from both of them their clothing to show both of them their shame. Indeed, he sees you - he and his tribe from where not you see them. Indeed, We have made the devils friends of those who (do) not believe.
7:28  And when they do immorality they say, "We found on it our forefathers and Allah (has) ordered us of it." Say, "Indeed, Allah (does) not order immorality. Do you say about Allah what you (do) not know?"
7:29  Say, "My Lord has ordered justice and set your faces at every masjid and invoke Him (being) sincere to Him (in) the religion. As He originated you (so) will you return."
7:30  A group He guided and a group deserved - [on] they the astraying. Indeed, they take the devils (as) allies besides Allah while they think that they (are the) guided-ones.
7:31  O Children (of) Adam! Take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink but (do) not be extravagant. Indeed, He (does) not love the extravagant ones.
7:32  Say, "Who has forbidden (the) adornment (from) Allah which He has brought forth for His slaves, and the pure things of sustenance?" Say, "They (are) for those who believe during the life (of) the world, exclusively (for them) (on the) Day (of) Resurrection. Thus We explain the Signs for (the) people who know."
7:33  Say, "Only (had) forbidden my Lord the shameful deeds what (is) apparent of it and what is concealed, and the sin, and the oppression without [the] right, and that you associate (others) with Allah what not He (has) sent down of it any authority, and that you say about Allah what you (do) not know."
7:34  And for every nation (is a fixed) term. So when comes their term, (they can) not seek to delay an hour, and not seek to advance (it).
7:35  O Children (of) Adam! If come to you Messengers from you relating to you My Verses, then whoever fears Allah, and reforms, then no fear on them and not they will grieve.
7:36  But those who deny Our Verses and (are) arrogant towards them those (are the) companions (of) the Fire, they in it will abide forever.
7:37  Then who (is) more unjust than (one) who invented against Allah a lie or denies His Verses? Those - will reach them their portion from the Book, until when comes to them Our messengers (Angels) (to) take them in death they say, "Where are those (whom) you used to invoke besides Allah?" They say, "They strayed from and they (will) testify against themselves that they were disbelievers.
7:38  He (will) say, "Enter among (the) nations (who) passed away before you of the jinn and the men in the Fire." Every time entered a nation it cursed its sister (nation) until when they had overtaken one another in it all, (will) say (the) last of them about the first of them, "Our Lord, these misled us so give them double punishment of the Fire." He (will) say, "For each (is) a double [and] but not you know."
7:39  And (will) say (the) first of them to (the) last of them, "Then not is for you upon us any superiority, so taste the punishment for what you used to earn."
7:40  Indeed, those who denied Our Verses and (were) arrogant towards them, (will) not be opened for them (the) doors (of) the heaven, and not they will enter Paradise until passes the camel through (the) eye (of) the needle. And thus We recompense the criminals.
7:41  For them of (the) Hell (is) a bed and over them coverings. And thus We recompense the wrongdoers.
7:42  But those who believe and do [the] righteous deeds not We burden any soul except (to) its capacity. Those (are the) companions (of) Paradise, they in it (will) abide forever.
7:43  And We will remove whatever (is) in their breasts of malice. Flows from underneath them the rivers. And they will say, "All the praise (is) for Allah, the One Who guided us to this, and not we were to receive guidance if not [that] Allah (had) guided us. Certainly, came Messengers (of) our Lord with the truth." And they will be addressed, [that] "This (is) Paradise, you have been made to inherit it for what you used to do."
7:44  And will call out (the) companions (of) Paradise (to the) companions (of) the Fire that, "Indeed, we found what our Lord had promised us true. So have you found what your Lord promised (to be) true?" They will say, "Yes." Then will announce an announcer among them, [that] "(The) curse (of) Allah (is) on the wrongdoers,
7:45  Those who hinder from (the) way (of) Allah and seek in it crookedness while they (are) concerning the Hereafter, disbelievers."
7:46  And between them (will be) a partition, and on the heights (will be) men recognizing all by their marks. And they will call out (to the) companions (of) Paradise that "Peace (be) upon you." Not they have entered it but they hope.
7:47  And when are turned their eyes towards (the) companions (of) the Fire, they (will) say, "Our Lord! (Do) not place us with the people - the wrongdoers."
7:48  And (will) call out (the) companions (of) the heights (to) men whom they recognize by their marks saying, "Not (has) availed [to] you your gathering and what you were arrogant (about)."
7:49  Are these the ones whom you had sworn that Allah (will) not grant them Mercy? "Enter Paradise. (There will be) no fear upon you and not you will grieve."
7:50  And (will) call out (the) companions (of) the Fire (to the) companions (of) Paradise [that], "Pour upon us [of] (some) water or of what Allah has provided you." They (will) say, "Indeed, Allah has forbidden both to the disbelievers,
7:51  Those who took their religion (as) an amusement and play and deluded them the life (of) the world." So today We forget them as they forgot (the) meeting (of) this Day of theirs, and [what] (as) they used to reject Our Verses.
7:52  And certainly We had brought (to) them a Book which We have explained with knowledge - a guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
7:53  Do they wait except (for) its fulfillment (The) Day (will) come its fulfillment, will say those who had forgotten it before, "Verily had come (the) Messengers (of) our Lord with the truth, so are (there) for us any intercessors so (that) they intercede for us or we are sent back so (that) we do (deeds) other than that which we used to do." Verily, they lost themselves, and strayed from them what they used to invent.
7:54  Indeed, your Lord (is) Allah the One Who created the heavens and the earth in six epochs, then He ascended on the Throne. He covers the night (with) the day seeking it rapidly and the sun and the moon and the stars - subjected by His command. Unquestionably for Him (is) the creation and the command, blessed (is) Allah, Lord (of) the worlds.
7:55  Call upon your Lord humbly and privately. Indeed, He (does) not love the transgressors.
7:56  And (do) not cause corruption in the earth after its reformation. And call Him (in) fear and hope. Indeed, (the) Mercy of Allah (is) near for the good-doers.
7:57  And He (is) the One Who sends the winds (as) glad tidings before His Mercy, until, when they have carried clouds - heavy, We drive them to a dead land then We send down from it the water then We bring forth from it all (kinds) of [the] fruits. Thus We will bring forth the dead so that you may take heed.
7:58  And the land - [the] pure, comes forth its vegetation by (the) permission (of) its Lord, but which is bad - (does) not come forth except (with) difficulty. Thus We explain the Signs for a people who are grateful.
7:59  Certainly, We sent Nuh to his people and he said, "O my people! Worship Allah, not for you any god other than Him. Indeed, I [I] fear for you punishment (of the) Day Great."
7:60  Said the chiefs of his people, "Indeed, we surely see you in clear error."
7:61  He said, "O my people! (There is) no error in me, but I am a Messenger from (the) Lord (of) the worlds.
7:62  I convey to you the Messages (of) my Lord and [I] advise [to] you, and I know from Allah what you (do) not know.
7:63  Do you wonder that has come to you a reminder from your Lord on a man among you, that he may warn you and that you may fear, and so that you may receive mercy."
7:64  But they denied him, so We saved him and those who (were) with him in the ship. And We drowned those who denied Our Verses. Indeed, they were a people blind.
7:65  And to Aad (We sent) their brother Hud. He said, "O my people! Worship Allah, not for you any god other than Him. Then will not you fear (Allah)?"
7:66  Said the chiefs (of) those who disbelieved from his people, "Indeed, we surely, see you in foolishness and indeed, we [we] think you (are) of the liars."
7:67  He said, "O my people! (There is) no foolishness in me but I am a Messenger from (the) Lord (of) the worlds.
7:68  I convey to you Messages (of) my Lord and I am to you an adviser - trustworthy.
7:69  Do you wonder that has come to you a reminder from your Lord on a man among you that he may warn you? And remember when He made you successors after (the) people (of) Nuh, and increased you in the stature extensively. So remember (the) Bounties (of) Allah so that you may succeed."
7:70  They said, "Have you come to us that we (should) worship Allah Alone and we forsake what used to worship our forefathers? Then bring us of what you promise us, if you are of the truthful."
7:71  He said, "Verily has fallen upon you from your Lord punishment and anger. Do you dispute w concerning names you have named them - you and your forefathers Allah (has) not sent down for it any authority? Then wait, indeed, I am with you of the ones who wait.
7:72  So We saved him and those with him by Mercy from Us. And We cut off the roots (of) those who denied Our Signs, and they were not believers.
7:73  And to Thamud (We sent) their brother Salih. He said, "O my people! Worship Allah, not for you any god other than Him. Verily has come to you a clear proof from your Lord, This (is) a she-camel (of) Allah (as) a Sign for you. So you leave her (to) eat on (the) earth (of) Allah, and (do) not touch her with harm, lest seizes you a punishment painful."
7:74  And remember when He made you successors after Aad, and settled you in the earth. You take from its plains palaces and you carve out the mountains (as) homes. So remember (the) Bounties (of) Allah and (do) not act wickedly in (the) earth spreading corruption.
7:75  Said the chiefs (of) those who were arrogant among his people to those who were oppressed - [to] those who believed among them, "Do you know that Salih (is the) one sent from his Lord?" They said, "Indeed, we in what he has been sent with [it] (are) believers."
7:76  Said those who were arrogant, "Indeed we, in that which you believe in it (are) disbelievers."
7:77  Then they hamstrung the she-camel and (were) insolent towards (the) command (of) their Lord and they said, "O Salih! Bring us what you promise us if you are of the Messengers."
7:78  So seized them the earthquake, then they became in their homes fallen prone.
7:79  So he turned away from them and he said, "O my people! Verily, I have conveyed to you (the) Message (of) my Lord and [I] advised [to] you but not you like the advisers."
7:80  And Lut, when he said to his people, "Do you commit (such) immorality not has preceded you therein any one of the worlds?
7:81  Indeed, you you approach the men lustfully instead of the women. Nay, you (are) a people (who) commit excesses."
7:82  And not was (the) answer (of) his people except that they said, "Drive them out of your town. Indeed, they (are) people who keep themselves pure."
7:83  So We saved him and his family except his wife, she was of those who stayed behind.
7:84  And We showered upon them a rain. So see how was (the) end (of) the criminals.
7:85  And to Madyan, his brother Shuaib. He said, "O my people! Worship Allah, not for you any god other than Him. Verily, has came to you a clear proof from your Lord. So give full [the] measure and the weight and (do) not deprive [the] people in their things and (do) not cause corruption in the earth after its reformation. That (is) better for you if you are believers.
7:86  And (do) not sit on every path threatening and hindering from (the) way (of) Allah (those) who believe in Him, and seeking (to make) it crooked. And remember when you were few and He increased you. And see how was (the) end (of) the corrupters.
7:87  And if (there) is a group among you (who has) believed in that which I have been sent with [it], and a group not they believe, then be patient until Allah judges between us. And He (is the) Best (of) [the] Judges."
7:88  Said the chiefs (of) those who were arrogant among his people, "We will surely drive you out O Shuaib! And those who (have) believed with you from our city, or you must return to our religion." He said, "Even if we are (the) ones who hate (it)?
7:89  Verily, we would have fabricated against Allah a lie if we returned in your religion after [when] Allah saved us from it. And not it is for us that we return in it except that wills Allah - our Lord. Our Lord Encompasses every thing (in) knowledge. Upon Allah we put our trust. Our Lord! Decide between us and between our people in truth and You (are the) Best (of) those who Decide."
7:90  And said the chiefs (of) those who disbelieved among his people, "If you follow Shuaib, indeed, you then (will be) certainly losers."
7:91  Then seized them the earthquake, then they became in their home(s) fallen prone.
7:92  Those who denied Shuaib (became) as if not they (had) lived therein. Those who denied Shuaib, they were the losers.
7:93  So he turned away from them and said, "O my people! Verily, I (have) conveyed to you (the) Messages (of) my Lord and advised [to] you. So how could I grieve for a people (who are) disbelievers?"
7:94  And not We sent in a city any Prophet except We seized its people with adversity and hardship, so that they may (become) humble.
7:95  Then We changed (in) place (of) the bad the good, until they increased and said, "Verily, (had) touched our forefathers the adversity and the ease." So We seized them suddenly, while they (did) not perceive.
7:96  And if [that] people (of) the cities (had) believed and feared Allah surely We (would have) opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth but they denied. So We seized them for what they used to earn.
7:97  Then did feel secure (the) people (of) the cities that comes to them Our punishment (at) night while they (were) asleep?
7:98  Or felt secure (the) people (of) the cities that comes to them Our punishment (in) daylight while they (were) playing?
7:99  Then did they feel secure (from the) plan (of) Allah? But not feel secure (from the) plan (of) Allah except the people (who are) the losers.
7:100  Would it not guide [for] those who inherit the land after its people that if We willed, We (could) afflict them for their sins and We put a seal over their hearts so they (do) not hear?
7:101  These (were) the cities - We relate to you of their news. And certainly came to them their Messengers with clear proofs, but not they were to believe in what they (had) denied before. Thus Allah put a seal on (the) hearts (of) the disbelievers.
7:102  And not We found for most of them any covenant. But We found most of them certainly, defiantly disobedient.
7:103  Then We sent after them Musa with Our Signs to Firaun and his chiefs, But they were unjust to them. So see how was (the) end (of) the corrupters.
7:104  And Musa said, "O Firaun! Indeed, I am a Messenger from (the) Lord (of) the worlds
7:105  Obligated on that not I say about Allah except the truth. Verily, I (have) come to you with a clear Sign from your Lord, so send with me (the) Children (of) Israel."
7:106  He said, "If you have come with a Sign, then bring it if you are of the truthful."
7:107  So he threw his staff, and suddenly it (was) a serpent, manifest.
7:108  And he drew out his hand and suddenly it (was) white for the observers.
7:109  Said the chiefs of (the) people (of) Firaun, "Indeed, this (is) surely a magician - learned.
7:110  He wants to drive you out from your land, so what (do) you instruct?"
7:111  They said, "Postpone him and his brother, and send in the cities gatherers.
7:112  They (will) bring to you [with] every learned magician."
7:113  So the magicians came (to) Firaun. They said, "Indeed, for us surely (will be) a reward if we are the victors."
7:114  He said, "Yes, and indeed you surely (will be) of the ones who are near."
7:115  They said, "O Musa! Whether [that] you throw or [that] we will be the ones to throw?"
7:116  He said, "Throw." Then when they threw, they bewitched (the) eyes (of) the people, and terrified them and came (up) with a magic great.
7:117  And We inspired to Musa that, "Throw your staff," and suddenly it swallow(ed) what they (were) falsifying.
7:118  So was established the truth, and became futile what they used to do.
7:119  So they were defeated there and returned humiliated.
7:120  And fell down the magicians prostrate.
7:121  They said, "We believe in (the) Lord (of) the worlds
7:122  Lord (of) Musa and Harun."
7:123  Said Firaun, "You believed in him before [that] I give permission to you. Indeed, this (is) surely a plot you have plotted it in the city so that you may drive out from it its people. But soon you will know.
7:124  I will surely cut off your hands and your feet of opposite (sides). Then I will surely crucify you all."
7:125  They said, "Indeed, we to our Lord (will) return.
7:126  And not you take revenge from us except that we believed in (the) Signs (of) our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord! Pour upon us patience and cause us to die (as) Muslims."
7:127  And said the chiefs of (the) people (of) Firaun, "Will you leave Musa and his people so that they cause corruption in the earth and forsake you and your gods?" He said, "We will kill their sons and we will let live their women, and indeed, we over them (are) subjugators."
7:128  Musa said to his people, "Seek help from Allah and be patient. Indeed, the earth (belongs) to Allah. He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the end (is) for the righteous."
7:129  They said, "We have been harmed before [that] you came to us and after [what] you have come to us." He said, "Perhaps your Lord [that] will destroy your enemy and make you successors in the earth, then see how you will do."
7:130  And certainly, We seized (the) people (of) Firaun with years (of famine) and a deficit of [the] fruits, so that they may receive admonition.
7:131  But when came to them the good they said, "This is for us." And if afflicts them bad, they ascribe evil omens to Musa and who (were) with him. Behold! Only their evil omens (are) with Allah but most of them (do) not know.
7:132  And they said, "Whatever you bring us therewith of (the) sign so that you bewitch us with it, then not we (will be) in you believers."
7:133  So We sent on them the flood and the locusts and the lice and the frogs and the blood (as) signs manifest, but they showed arrogance and they were a criminal people.
7:134  And when fell on them the punishment, they said, "O Musa! Invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised to you. If you remove from us the punishment surely, we will believe [for] you and surely, we will send with you (the) Children (of) Israel."
7:135  But when We removed from them the punishment till a (fixed) term (which) they were to reach [it], then, they broke (the word).
7:136  So We took retribution from them and We drowned them in the sea because they denied Our Signs, and they were to them heedless.
7:137  And We made inheritors the people those who were considered weak - (the) eastern (parts) (of) the land and the western (parts) of it, which We blessed [in it]. And was fulfilled (the) word (of) your Lord - the best for (the) Children (of) Israel because they were patient. And We destroyed what used to make Firaun and his people, and what they used to erect.
7:138  And We led across (the) Children of Israel the sea. Then they came upon a people devoted to idols of theirs. They said, "O Musa! Make for us a god like what they have gods. He said, "Indeed, you (are) a people ignorant.
7:139  Indeed these, destroyed (is) what they (are) in it and vain (is) what they used to do."
7:140  He said, "Should other than Allah I seek for you a god, while He has preferred you over the worlds?"
7:141  And when We saved you from (the) people (of) Firaun who were afflicting you (with) worst (of) torment, they were killing your sons and letting live your women. And in that (was) a trial from your Lord great.
7:142  And We appointed (for) Musa thirty nights and We completed them with ten (more), so was completed (the) set term (of) his Lord (of) forty night(s). And said Musa to his brother Harun, "Take my place in my people, and do right and (do) not follow (the) way (of) the corrupters."
7:143  And when Musa came to Our appointed place and spoke to him his Lord, he said, "O my Lord! Show me (that) I may look at You." He said, "Never you (can) see Me, but look at the mountain [then] if it remains in its place then you will see Me." But when revealed (His) Glory his Lord to the mountain, He made it crumbled to dust and Musa fell down unconscious. And when he recovered he said, "Glory be to You! I turn (in repentance) to you, and I am (the) first (of) the believers."
7:144  He said, "O Musa! Indeed, I have chosen you over the people with My Messages and with My words. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful."
7:145  And We ordained (laws) for him in the tablets - of every thing, an instruction and explanation for every thing, "So take them with firmness and order your people (to) take (the) best of it. I will show you (the) home (of) the defiantly disobedient."
7:146  I will turn away from My Signs those who are arrogant in the earth without [the] right; and if they see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see (the) way (of) the righteousness, they will not take it (as) a way, but if they see (the) way (of) [the] error, they will take it (as) a way. That (is) because they denied Our Signs and they were of them heedless.
7:147  And those who denied Our Signs and (the) meeting (of) the Hereafter - worthless (are) their deeds. Will they be recompensed except (for) what they used to do?
7:148  And took (the) people (of) Musa, after him from their ornaments an image (of) a calf [for] it (had) a lowing sound. Did not they see that it (could) not speak to them and not guide them (to) a way? They took it (for worship) and they were wrongdoers.
7:149  And when they were regretful and they saw that they (had) indeed gone astray, they said, "If Our Lord does not have Mercy on us and forgive [for] us, we will surely be among the losers."
7:150  And when Musa returned to his people - angry, and grieved, he said, "Evil is what you have done in my place after me. Were you impatient (over the) matter (of) your Lord?" And he cast down the tablets and seized by head, his brother dragging him to himself. He said, "O son (of) my mother! Indeed, the people considered me weak and were about to kill me. So (let) not rejoice over me the enemies, and (do) not place me with the wrongdoing people."
7:151  He said, "O my Lord! Forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your Mercy, for You (are) the Most Merciful (of) the merciful."
7:152  Indeed, those who took the calf, will reach them wrath from their Lord, and humiliation in the life (of) the world. And thus We recompense the ones who invent (falsehood).
7:153  And those who do the evil deeds then repented after that and believed, indeed, your Lord after that (is) surely Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
7:154  And when was calmed from Musa the anger, he took (up) the tablets and in their inscription (was) guidance and mercy for those who [they] (are) fearful of their Lord.
7:155  And chose Musa (from) his people seventy men for Our appointment. Then when seized them the earthquake he said, "O my Lord! If You (had) willed, You (could) have destroyed them before and me. Would You destroy us for what did the foolish among us? Not it (was) but Your trial, You let go astray by it whom You will and You guide whom You will. You (are) our Protector, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You (are) Best (of) Forgivers.
7:156  And ordain for us in this [the] world, good and in the Hereafter. Indeed, we we have turned to You." He said, "My punishment - I afflict with it whom I will, but My Mercy encompasses every thing. So I will ordain it for those who (are) righteous and give zakah and those who [they] believe in Our Verses.
7:157  Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find him written with them in the Taurat and the Injeel. He commands them to the right and forbids them from the wrong, and he makes lawful for them the pure things and makes unlawful for them the impure things and he relieves from them their burden and the fetters which were upon them. So those who believe in him and honor him, and help him and follow the light which has been sent down with him. Those (are) [they] the successful ones."
7:158  Say, "O mankind! Indeed I am (the) Messenger (of) Allah to you all, the One for Whom (is the) dominion (of) the heavens and the earth. (There is) no god except Him, He gives life and causes death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered [the] Prophet the one who believes in Allah and His Words, and follow so that you may (be) guided."
7:159  And among (the) people (of) Musa (is) a community (which) guides with truth and by it establishes justice.
7:160  And We divided them (into) twelve tribes (as) communities. And We inspired to Musa, when asked him for water his people, [that] "Strike with your staff the stone." Then gushed forth from it twelve springs. Certainly, knew each people their drinking place. And We shaded [on] them (with) the clouds and We sent down upon them, the and the quails. "Eat from (the) good things which We have provided you." And not they wronged Us but they were (to) themselves doing wrong.
7:161  And when it was said to them, "Live (in) this city and eat from it wherever you wish and say, "Repentance," and enter the gate prostrating, We will forgive for you your sins. We will increase (reward) (of) the good-doers."
7:162  But changed those who wronged among them word other than (that) which was said to them. So We sent upon them torment from the sky because they were doing wrong.
7:163  And ask them about the town which was situated (by) the sea, when they transgressed in the (matter of) Sabbath, when came to them their fish (on the) day (of) their Sabbath visibly and (on the) day not they had Sabbath (they did) not come to them. Thus We test them because they were defiantly disobeying.
7:164  And when said a community among them, "Why (do) you preach a people, (whom) Allah (is going to) destroy them or punish them (with) a punishment severe?" They said, "To be absolved before your Lord and that they may become righteous."
7:165  So when they forgot what they had been reminded with [it], We saved those who forbade [from] the evil, and We seized those who wronged with a punishment wretched, because they were defiantly disobeying.
7:166  So when they exceeded all bounds about what they were forbidden from it, We said to them, "Be apes, despised."
7:167  And when declared your Lord that He would surely send upon them till (the) Day (of) the Resurrection (those) who would afflict them (with) a grievous [the] punishment. Indeed, your Lord (is) surely swift (in) the retribution, but indeed, He (is) surely Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
7:168  And We divided them in the earth (as) nations. Among them (are) the righteous and among them (are) other than that. And We tested them with the good and the bad, so that they may return.
7:169  Then succeeded [after] them successors (who) inherited the Book taking goods (of) this the lower (life) and they say, "It will be forgiven for us." And if comes to them goods similar to it they will take it. Was not taken on them Covenant (of) the Book that not they will say about Allah except the truth while they studied what (is) in it? And the home (of) the Hereafter (is) better for those who fear Allah. So will not you use intellect?
7:170  And those who hold fast to the Book, and establish the prayer, indeed, We (will) not [We] let go waste (the) reward (of) the reformers.
7:171  And when We raised the mountain above them as if it was a canopy and they thought that it (would) fall upon them, (We said), "Take what We have given you with strength and remember what (is) in it so that you may fear Allah."
7:172  And when your Lord took from (the) Children (of) Adam - from their loins - their descendants and made them over themselves, "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes we have testified." Lest you say (on the) Day (of) the Resurrection, "Indeed, we were about this unaware."
7:173  Or you say, "Only our forefathers associated partners (with Allah) before (us) and we are descendants after them. So will You destroy us for what did the falsifiers?"
7:174  And thus We explain the Verses so that they may return.
7:175  And recite to them (the) story (of the) one whom We gave [him] Our Verses, but he detached [from] them, so followed him the Shaitaan and he became of those gone astray.
7:176  And if We willed surely, We (could) have raised him with these [and] but he adhered to the earth and followed his (vain) desires. So his example (is) like (the) example (of) the dog, if you attack [on] him, he lolls out his tongue or if you leave him, he lolls out his tongue. That (is the) example (of) the people who denied [in] Our Signs. So relate the story so that they may reflect.
7:177  Evil (as) an example (are) the people those who denied Our Signs and themselves they used to wrong.
7:178  Whoever Allah guides then he (is) the guided one while whoever He lets go astray then those [they] (are) the losers.
7:179  And certainly We have created for Hell many of the jinn and men. For them (are) hearts (but) not they understand with them, and for them (are) eyes (but) not they see with them, and for them (are) ears (but) not they hear with them. Those (are) like cattle, nay they (are) more astray. Those - they (are) the heedless.
7:180  And for Allah (are) the names - the most beautiful, so invoke Him by them. And leave those who deviate concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they used to do.
7:181  And of (those) whom We have created (is) a nation, who guides with the truth and thereby they establish justice.
7:182  But those who denied Our Signs, We will gradually lead them from where not they know.
7:183  And I will give respite to them. Indeed, My plan (is) firm.
7:184  Do not they reflect? Not in their companion [of] (is) any madness. Not he (is) but a clear warner.
7:185  Do not they look in (the) dominion (of) the heavens and the earth and what Allah has created of (every)thing and that perhaps [that] has verily come near - their term? So in what statement after this will they believe?
7:186  Whoever Allah lets go astray then (there is) no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression wandering blindly.
7:187  They ask you about the Hour, when will be its appointed time? Say, "Only its knowledge (is) with my Lord, no (one) can reveal [it] its time except Him. It lays heavily in the heavens and the earth. Not will it come to you but suddenly." They ask you as if you (were) well informed about it. Say, "Only its knowledge (is) with Allah, but most (of) the people (do) not know."
7:188  Say, "I have no power for myself (to) benefit and no (power to) harm, except what Allah wills. And if I would know (of) the unseen surely I could have multiplied of the good and not (could) have touched me the evil. I am not except a warner and a bearer of good tidings to a people who believe."
7:189  He (is) the One Who created you from a single soul and made from it its mate that he might live with her. And when he covers her, she carries a burden light and continues with it. But when she grows heavy, they both invoke Allah, their Lord, "If You give us a righteous (child), surely we will be among the thankful."
7:190  But when He gives them a good, (child) they make for Him partners in what He has given them. But exalted (is) Allah above what they associate (with Him).
7:191  Do they associate what (can) not create anything and they are created?
7:192  And not they are able to (give) them any help and not they can help themselves.
7:193  And if you call them to the guidance, they will not follow you. (It is) same for you whether you call them or you remain silent.
7:194  Indeed, those whom you call besides Allah (are) slaves like you. So invoke them and let them respond to you, if you are truthful.
7:195  Are for them feet (to) walk with [it], or for them hands (to) hold with [it], or for them eyes (to) see with [it], or for them ears (to) hear with [it]? Say, "Call your partners, then scheme against me and (do) not give me respite."
7:196  Indeed, my protector (is) Allah the One Who revealed the Book. And He protects the righteous.
7:197  And those whom you invoke besides Him, not they are able (to) help you and not they can help themselves.
7:198  And if you call them to the guidance they do not hear. And you see them looking at you but they (do) not see.
7:199  Hold (to) forgiveness and enjoin the good, and turn away from the ignorant.
7:200  And if an evil suggestion comes to you from [the] Shaitaan [an evil suggestion], then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He (is) All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
7:201  Indeed, those who fear (Allah) when touches them an evil thought from the Shaitaan, they remember (Allah) and then they (are) those who see (aright).
7:202  But their brothers they plunge them in the error, then not they cease.
7:203  And when not you bring them a Sign they say, "Why (have) not you devised it?" Say, "Only I follow what is revealed to me from my Lord. This (is) enlightenment from your Lord and guidance and mercy for a people who believe."
7:204  And when is recited the Quran, then listen to it and pay attention so that you may receive mercy.
7:205  And remember your Lord in yourself humbly and (in) fear and without the loudness of [the] words, in the mornings and (in) the evenings. And (do) not be among the heedless.
7:206  Indeed, those who (are) near your Lord, they (do) not turn away in pride from His worship. And they glorify Him and to Him they prostrate.
