A Book has been sent to you, so let there be no impediment in your heart because of it, so that you may warntherewith and an admonition to the muslims.
‘O people! Follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not go behind other masters leavingHim. Very little you understand.
And many a town We have destroyed then Our torment came upon them by night or while they slept in thenoon.
Then nothing came out from their mouths when Our torment came upon them but they said, ‘we were unjustpeople.’
Then undoubtedly, We are necessarily to ask from those to whom Messengers were sent and undoubtedly, Weare necessarily to ask from the Messengers.
Then surely We shall tell them with Our knowledge and We were not absent.
And the weighing on that day is sure then those whoso scales are heavy, they are to attain their objects.
And those whose scales are light, then they are the persons who have put their souls in loss, the recompenseof those excesses which they used to do with Our signs.
And undoubtedly, We established you in the earth, and have made therein the means of your livelihood. Howlittle thanks you give.
And undoubtedly, We created you, then made your shapes, then We said to the angels, ‘prostrate before Adamthen all those fell prostrate, but Iblis (devil); he was not of those who prostrated.
He said, ‘what prevented you that you did not fall prostrate when I ordered you? Said he, I am better than him,You created me of fire and made him of clay.’
He said ‘get you down from here, it is not for you that you may behave proudly living here, get out, you areamongst the degraded ones.
Said, he’ give me time till the day they are raised up’.
He said, ‘you are given time.’
Said he, I swear that because You have seduced me, I shall necessarily sit on Your straight path in wait forthem.
Then, surely I will come near them, from before them and from behind them, and from their right and fromtheir left. And You will not find most of them thankful.
He said, ‘get out from here rejected, banished. Surely those of them who will follow you, I will fill Hell with youall.”
And O Adam! Dwell you and your mate in the Paradise then eat there from where so ever you will, andapproach not this tree, otherwise you will be among transgressors.
Then the devil (Satan) put evil suggestion in their hearts, so that he might open to them the things of theirshame which were hidden from them and said, ‘your Lord has for bidden you from this tree only because youmay not become two angels or become immortals.
And he swore to them both that, I am well wisher of you both.
Then he caused them to fall with delusion, then when they tasted that tree, the things of their shame becamemanifest to them, and they began to stick the leaves of the Paradise on their bodies. And their Lord said tothem, ‘Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that the Devil (Satan) is your manifest enemy’.
Both of them submitted, ‘O Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves, if You forgive us not and have not mercy onus, then certainly we are among losers.’
He said, ‘Get down, in you one is enemy of the another and you are to stay in earth till a fixed time and thereis provision for a time.
He said, ‘you will be alive in it, and will die in it, and therefrom you will be raised.’
‘O children of Adam! Undoubtedly, We have sent down towards you a dress that may cover your shamefulparts and one that be an adornment to you; and the dress of righteousness, that is the best. This is one ofAllah’s signs, that I they may be admonished.
‘O children of Adam! Beware! Let not the devil (Satan) tempts you, as he brought your parents out from theparadise, stripping them of their dress that they may see their shameful parts. Undoubtedly, he and his tribesee you whence you see them not. Undoubtedly, We have made the devils friends of those who do not believe.
And when they commit any indecency, they say, ‘we found our forefathers on it and Allah commanded us so.Then say, ‘undoubtedly Allah commands not acts of indecency.’ Do you allege against Allah what you knownot?
Say you, My Lord has commanded justice and set your faces aright at the time of each prayer, and worshipHim being exclusively His bondmen. As He originated you so you will return.’
A party He has shown path and the error of a party has been proved. They have taken the devils (Satan) asguardians leaving Allah and they think that they are guided.
‘O children of Adam! Take your adornment whenever you go to mosque and eat and drink and do not cross thelimit. Undoubtedly, the persons crossing the limit are not liked by Him.
Say you, ‘who has forbidden the adornment of Allah, which He brought forth for His bondmen and the purefoods? Say you. ‘That is for the believers in the world and is exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection.Thus We explain fully the signs for the people who have knowledge.
Say you, ‘My Lord has forbidden the indecencies, which of them are open and which are hidden. And sin, andunjust excesses, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down any warrant and thatyou say of Allah what you know not.
And for every people there is a promise (been), then when their term will come, they cannot remain behind foran hour nor they get ahead of it.
‘O children of Adam! If the Messengers come to you from among you, reciting to you My signs! Then whosorefrains from evil and amends, on them there is neither any fear nor any grief.
And those who have belied Our signs and waxed proud against them, they are the people of Hell, in it they areto abide.
Then who is more unjust than he who has forged lie against Allah or has belied His signs? They will receivewhat is written in their lot till when Our Messengers came to them for taking away their souls, then they say tothem, ‘where are those whom you used to worship beside Allah.’ They say, ‘they are lost from us.’ and theybear witness against their own souls that they were infidels.
Allah says to them, enter the same Fire where other communities of Jinn and mankind went before you when acommunity enters it, it curses the other; until when all have arrived therein, then the last will say to the first, ‘Oour Lord, these led us astray, then award them double torment Of the Fire. He will say, ‘all have double, butyou know not.’
And the first will say to the last, ‘you have then not been anyhow better than us, taste therefore the tormentthe recompense of what you did’.
Those who belied Our signs and waxed proud against them, the gates of heaven will not be opened for them,nor they will enter the paradise until the camel enters-through the eye of a needle. And thus We requite theguilty.
To them Fire will be the bed and Fire will be the covering. And thus We requite the unjust.
And those who accepted faith and did good deeds to their strength. We put not burden on anyone beyond hisstrength. They are companions of Paradise; they are to abide therein.
And We have taken out the rancours from their breasts. Beneath them will low rivers and they will say. ‘allpraise belong to Allah Who has guided us to this, and we could not have found the way, if Allah had not guidedus, undoubtedly, the Messengers of our Lord brought truth And it was proclaimed that this is the paradise youhave inherited the reward of your doings.
And the companions of the Heaven called the companions of the Hell, ‘We have found what our Lord promisedus to be true, then have you too found what your Lord promised you to be true? They said, ‘yes,’ and inbetween them a caller called out: ‘the curse of Allah be upon the unjust.’
Who bar from the path of Allah and desire to make it Crooked and dis-believe in the Hereafter.
And between Heaven and Hell there is a veil and on the Heights, there shall be some men who will recogniseboth groups by their fore-heads’ and call the people of Heaven, ‘(saying) peace be upon you, ‘these have notentered into the Heaven but are greedy for it.
And when their eyes will turn towards the people of the Hell, they will say ‘O’ Our Lord! Keep us not with theunjust people.
And the people of the heights will call to certain men whom they recognise by their foreheads, and will say,’what did your multitude avail you and that in which you took pride’?
Are these the people on whom you used to swear that Allah would not amend His mercy a least to them? Theywere rather told, enter Paradise, no fear upon you nor any grief.’
And the companions of the Fire will call the companions of the Heaven that give us some benefit of your wateror of that Allah has provided for you as food. They will say ‘undoubtedly, Allah has for bidden these both to theinfidels.’
Those who made their religion as a plaything and amusement and the life of the world has deceived them.Therefore to day We shall leave them as they had left the conception of meeting of this Day and as they usedto deny Our signs.
And surely We have brought them a Book which We have detailed with great knowledge, a guidance andmercy to the people who believe.
What they are looking for, but only this that the result of the sayings of the Book should come before. The daywhen the foretold result will occur, those who had forgotten it before will say. ‘Undoubtedly the Messengers ofour Lord had brought the truth, then, is there any intercessor for us who could intercede on our behalf? Orcould We be sent back so that we might do deeds other than that we did before. Surely they put their souls ata loss, and I have been lost from those who used to calumniate.
Undoubtedly, your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and earth in six days, then established Himself onthe Throne befitting to His Dignity. He covers the night and day by each other following it swiftly, and madethe sun and moon and stars all subservient to His command. Behold! His is the creation and command. Blessedis Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
Call on your Lord humbly and secretly. Undoubtedly, He likes not those who cross the limit.
And spread not mischief in the earth after it has been set right and call on Him fearing and longing. Surely themercy of Allah is nigh to the good doers.
It is He who sends forth winds bearing good tidings before His mercy till they have carried heavy clouds, Wedrive it towards any dead land, then send down water therewith. Then caused to grow varied fruits there with.Thus shall We bring forth the dead, haply you may accept admonition.
And the land, which is good, its vegetation comes forth with the command of Allah and from that which is badcomes forth nothing but very little. Thus we explain signs variedly for those who are grateful.
Undoubtedly, We sent Nuh towards his people then he said. ‘O my people! Worship Allah, you have no Godother than He. Surely I fear for you the torment of the Mighty Day.’
The leaders of his people said, ‘undoubtedly, we see you in apparent error.
Said he, ‘O my people no error is in me; but I am Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds’.
I deliver to you the messages of my Lord and wish your good and I know that from Allah, which you know not.
And have this surprised you that an admonition has come to you from your Lord through a man from amongstyou, so that he may warn you and you be god-fearing and haply you may be shown mercy?
Then they belied him, so We delivered him and those with him in the Ark and drowned those who belied Oursigns, certainly that was a blind group.
And to Aad send Hud from their brethren. He said, `O my people! worship Allah, you have no god other thanHe.’ Then do you not fear?
The leaders of his people said, ‘surely, we find you foolish and we surely think you to be one of the liars.
Said he, ‘O my people there is no concern of foolishness with me, I am indeed a Messenger from the Lord ofthe worlds.
I deliver to you the messages of my Lord and I am your trustworthy well wisher.
And have this surprised you that an admonition has come to you from your Lord through a man from amongstyou, so that he may warn you? And remember when He appointed you as successors of the people of Huh andincreased the stature of your body; then remember the bounties of Allah that haply you may fare well.
They said, ‘Have you come to us that we should worship Allah alone and leave what our fathers used toworship, then bring you that you are promising for us if you are truthful.
He said, ‘surely there have befallen you the torment and wrath of Lord. Are you disputing with me only aboutthose names which you and your fathers have named for which Allah has sent down no authority? Wait then; Ialso wait with you.
Then We delivered him and those with him by showing a great mercy from Us and cut off the roots of thosewho used to belie Our signs and they were not believers.
And to Thamud We sent, Saleh from their brethren. He said. ‘O my people! worship Allah, you have no Godother than He. Undoubtedly, there has come to you bright proof from your Lord, this is a she-camel of Allah asign for you. So leave her that she may eat in Allah’s earth and touch her not with evil lest a painful tormentwill overtake you.
And remember when He made you successors of Aad, and assigned you a place in the land that you buildpalaces in its plains, and hew out houses in its mountains. Then remember the bounties of Allah and wandernot in the earth spreading mischief.
The proud leaders of his people said, ‘to the weak Muslims, ‘do you know that Saleh is a Messenger of hisLord’? They said, ‘We believe in what has been sent with him.
The proud ones said, ‘in that which you belied we disbelieve.’
Then they hamstrung the she-camel and rebelled against the command of their Lord and said, ‘O Saleh, ‘bringupon ‘ us that which you are promising for, if you are a Messenger.
Then the earthquake took them so in the morning they lay prostrate in their homes.
Then Saleh turned back his face from them and said, ‘O my people! Undoubtedly, I did deliver to you themessages of my Lord, and wished your good, but you do not approve the well wishers.
And sent Lut, when he said to his people, do you commit that indecency which was ‘ not committed by any onein, the world before you?
You rather approach men lustily instead of women on the contrary you people have crossed the limit.
And there was no answer of his people but this: They said, ‘turn them out of your town, these people aspire tobe pure.’
Then We delivered him and his family saves his wife, she was of those who remained behind.
And We rained down upon them a rain, then behold how was the end of the sinners?
And to Madyan We sent Shuaib from there brethren. He said, ‘O my people worship Allah, there is no God foryou other than He Undoubtedly, there has come to you bright proof from your Lord, then fill up the measureand weight, and give not the people goods after diminishing and spread not mischief in the earth after fairordering This is good for you, if you believe.
And sit not on every path threatening and barring from Allah’s way to the wayfarers who have believed in Him,and desiring crookedness in it: and remember, when you were few. He multiplied you, and beholds how wasthe end of the mischief-makers.
And if there is a party of you who believe in that with which I have been sent and a party who believe not,then wait till Allah decides between us; and Allah’s decision is the
The proud Chiefs of his people said, ‘O Shoaib, we swear that we will drive you out and the Muslims who arewith you from our town or you come back to our faith’. He said. What, even though we hate it?
Certainly we shall forge a lie against Allah, if we returned to your faith after Allah has delivered us from it. Andit is not for we Muslims that we should come back in your faith but that Allah Who is our Lord so willed. Theknowledge of our Lord comprehends everything. We have relied on Allah. O our Lord! Decide between us andour people with truth and Your decision is the best.
And the infidel chiefs of his people said, ‘if you follow Shoaib, you shall certainly be the losers.’
Then an earthquake over took them; so in the morning they fell prostrate in their homes,
Those who belied Shoaib as if they had never been dwelling in those homes. Those who belied Shoaib were thepeople who were ruined.
Then Shoaib turned his face from them and said,’ O my people, I have already delivered to you the messagesof my Lord and admonished for your good, how then should I lament over infidels.
And We have not sent any prophet in any town but We seized the people thereof with adversity and sufferingthat anyhow they might lament.
Then We changed the place of evil with good until they became numerous and said, “no doubt, sufferings andcomforts visited our fathers,” then We seized them suddenly while they were unmindful.
And if the people of the towns had believed and feared, then We would surely have opened upon themblessings from heavens and earth but they belied, then We arrested them on account of their doings.
Do the people of the towns not fear that Our torment might come upon them at night while they are sleeping?
Or do the people of the towns not fear that Our torment might come upon them in daylight while they areplaying?
Are they unaware of the secret devise of Allah? And none becomes fearless against the secret devise of Allahbut the losers.
And do those who inherited the land after the owners of it not get so much guidance that if We please, Wewould have afflicted them for their sins? And We put a seal upon their hearts so that they hear nothing.
These are the towns the stories of which We relate to you, and undoubtedly, there came to them theirMessengers with bright proofs, but they were not able to believe what they had first rejected. Thus Allah put aseal upon the, hearts of the infidels.
And We found not most ‘ of them true to their words, and necessarily, We found most of them disobedient.
Then, after them, We sent Moses towards Firawn (Pharaoh) and his Chiefs with Our Signs, but they didinjustice to those signs, see then how was the end of the mischief
And Moses said, ‘O, Firawn! I am a Messenger from the Lord of the Worlds.
It is my duty not to say anything about Allah but the truth. I have come to you all with sign from your Lord,then let the children of Israel go with me.
He said, ‘If you have come with any Sign, then bring forth if you are truthful.
Then Moses cast his staff, it atonce became a serpent manifest.
And he drew forth his hand after putting it into his collar, then it began to shine before the beholders.
The Chiefs of the people of Pharaoh said, ‘this is indeed a magician knowing.’
He desires to turn you out from your land, what is your advice then?
They said, ‘put him off and his brother, and send into the city men to collect.
That they may bring to you every magician having knowledge.
And the magicians came to Pharaoh (Firawn) and said, we shall get some reward if we win.’
Firawn said, ‘yes’, and then you shall be near ones.
They said, ‘O Musa, either you throw first or we be the throwers’.
Musa said, ‘you throw,’ when they threw, they enchanted the eyes of the people and frightened them andbrought forth a great magic.
And We revealed to Musa, throw your staff, then suddenly it began to swallow their lying shows.
Then the truth was established and their works proved vain.
Then they were laid vanquished here and returned humiliated.
And the magicians were made to prostrate.
They said, ‘We believe in the Lord of the World.’
Who is the Lord of Musa and Haroon?
Firawn said, ‘you have believed in Him before I gave you leave. This is indeed a big plot which you all haveplotted in the city that you may drive forth its people therefrom; so now you shall know.’
I shall assuredly cut off your hands and your feet on alternate sides, and then I shall hang you all.
They said, ‘We are to return towards our Lord.
And what looked you bad of us, save this that we have believed in the signs of our Lord, when they came tous, O our Lord pour upon us patience and cause us die as Muslims.
And the Chiefs of the people of Firawn said, ‘Do you leave Musa and his people for this that they may spreadmischief in the land and leave you and your gods? He said, ‘now we shall kill their sons and let live theirdaughters and surely we are dominant over them.
Musa said to his people, ‘seek the help of Allah and have patience, no doubt, Allah is the owner of the earth.Makes successor whomsoever He pleases of His bondmen. And the end is in the hand of the God-fearing
They said, ‘We were oppressed before your coming to us and since you have come to us’, He said, ‘it is nearthat your Lord may destroy your foe and make you successor in the land to see then how you act.
And no doubt, We seized the people of Firawn with years of dearth and scarcity of fruits, haply they mayaccept admonition.
Then whenever, they pot good, they used to say, ‘this is for us’, and whenever evil smote them they took it asbad omen with Musa and those with him. Behold!, their ill fortune is with Allah, but most of them do not know.
And they said, ‘whatever the nature of a Sign you may bring to us to enchant us therewith, we are in no way tobelieve you.
Then We sent upon them the flood, and the locusts and the lice, and the frogs and the blood -distinct signs,then they waxed proud and they were a sinful people.
And whenever the torment fell upon them, they used to say, ‘O Musa, pray for us to your Lord because of thatcovenant of His which is with you. No doubt, if you would remove from us the torment, we would certainlybelieve in you and will send with you the children of Israel.
But whenever We removed the torment from them for a term to which they were to reach, they retracted.
We then took vengeance on them, therefore We drowned them in the river, because they belied Our Signs andwere unaware of them.
And We made a people who were already suppressed, inheritors of the eastern and western parts of that landin which We put Our blessings And the gracious promise of your Lord was fulfilled for the children of Israel, therecompense of their patience. And We destroyed whatever Firawn and his people made and what they used toerect.
And We brought the children of Israel across the river, and then they came upon a people sitting devotedlybefore their idols. They said, ‘O Musa, make for us a God just as they have so many gods. He said, ‘Surely youare an ignorant people’.
This condition in which they are, is of destruction and whatever they are doing is fully void.
He said, “Shall I seek for you a God other than Allah whereas He has exalted you above all peoples.
And remember, when We delivered you from the people of Firawn who afflicted you with evil punishment,slaughtering your sons and letting your daughters live. And therein was the great bounty of your Lord.
And We made Musa a promise of thirty nights and completed adding ten more in them, so the promise of hisLord was completed by forty nights. And Musa said to his brother, Haroon, ‘be my vicegerent among my peopleand do right and follow not the way of mischief makers.’
And when Musa came to Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he submitted, ‘O my Lord! Show meYour sight that I may behold You, Said He, you shall never see me; but look towards this mountain, if itremains standing at its place, then soon you will see Me. Then when his Lord made His light shine on themountain, He broke it into pieces; and Musa fell down unconscious. Then when he came to senses, he said,hollowed be you turn towards you and I am the first of the Muslims.
Said Allah, ‘O Musa, I have chosen you from amongst the people by My Messages and by My word. Take thenwhat I have given you and be of the grateful.
And We wrote for him on the Tablets of everything an admonition, and details of everything, and said, ‘OMusa, take it with firmness and bid your people to follow the best of it. Soon I shall show you the abode of thedis-obedients.
And I shall turn from My Signs those who wish greatness in the earth unjustly, And even if they see all thesigns, they will not believe therein, and if they see the path of guidance, they will not like to walk in it; and ifthey see the path of error, they will be ready to adopt it. This is so because they belied Our Signs and posedthemselves unaware.
And those who have belied Our Signs and the meeting of the Hereafter their all deeds are wasted. What theywill get in recompense but, the same which, they used to do.
And after Musa, his people made a calf out of their ornaments, a lifeless body, producing a lowing sound. Didthey not see that neither it talked to them and nor guided them to any way? They took it, and they wereunjust.
And when they regretted and understood that they had strayed, they said, ‘If our Lord have not mercy upon usand forgives us not, then we are ruined’.
And Musa returned to his people full of anger, peeved, he said, that ‘how badly you acted in my place afterme’? ‘Did you hasten from the Commends of your Lord’? And he threw down the tablets and began to pull hisbrother (Haroon) towards him catching hold of the hair of his brother head. He said, ‘O son of my mother, thepeople deemed me week and were about to kill me, so do not make the enemies laugh over me and place menot with the unjust people’.
He submitted, ‘O my Lord, forgive my brother, and me and cause us to enter Your mercy and You are the mostMerciful of the merciful.
Undoubtedly, those who had already taken the calf for themselves, soon the wrath and disgrace of their Lordare to reach them in the life of the world. And thus we recompense those who cast aspersions,
And those who committed evils and thereafter repented and accepted faith, then after that your Lord isForgiving, Merciful.
And when the anger of Musa was appeased, he took up the tablets, and in their writing there is guidance andmercy for those who fear their Lord.
And Musa chose seventy men of his people for Our promised appointment, then when earthquake overtookthem, Musa submitted, ‘O my Lord, had You wished, then You would have destroyed them and me before. Willyou kill us for what our foolish ones have done’? That is not but your test, whereby you, cause astray whomyou will, and guide whom you will. You are our Protector, You forgive us and have mercy upon us, and you arethe best of the forgivers.
And prescribe for us in this world good and in the Hereafter, no doubt, we have returned to You. He said, ‘Mypunishment, I inflict whom I will, and My mercy encompasses all things. Then soon I shall prescribe it for thosewho fear God and pay the poor due and believe in Our Signs.
Those who will serve the Messenger, unlettered the, Communicator of hidden news when they will find withthem have written in the Taurat and Injeel. He will bid them to do good and will forbid them from doing evil,and will make lawful for them clean things and will forbid for them unclean things, and will take off from themthat burden and shackles which were upon them. Then those who believe in him and honour him and help himand follow that light which has been sent down with him, they are the persons who attained their objects.
Say you, ‘O mankind’; I am Messenger to you all from Allah to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens andof the earth. None is to be worshiped except He, He gives life and causes death, believe then in Allah and HisMessenger the unlettered, the Communicator of hidden news that he believes in Allah and His words; andserve him so that you may be guided.’
And of the people of Musa, there is a community that tells the path of truth and does justice therewith.
And We divided them in twelve tribes, various communities. And We revealed to Musa, when his people askedhim for water that strike with your staff this rock, then there gushed forth from it twelve Springs. Everycommunity recognised its drinking place. And We made clouds as shades over them, and sent down Mannaand Salwa upon them. Eat of the clean things We provided for you, and they harmed Us not, but they harmedtheir own souls.
And remember when it was said to them, “Dwell in this town and eat from it whatever you like, and say, ‘oursins may be removed and enter the gate, prostrating, We shall forgive you yours sins. Soon We shall give moreto righteous ones.
Then the unjust of them changed the word contrary to that what was ordered to them, then We sent downupon them torment from the heaven, the recompense of their injustice.
And ask them the condition of the town that was on the seashore; when they crossed the limit in the matter ofsab-bath, when on the day of Sab-bath their fish came swimming before them, and the day that was not ofSabbath, they did not come. Thus, We used to try them on account of their dis-obedience.
When a group among them said, ‘Why do you admonish those whom Allah is to kill or to chastise with a severetorment’. They said, ‘as an excuse before your Lord, and that haply they may fear’.
Then when they forgot what they had been admonished, We rescued those who forbade from evil, and caughtthe unjust in a vile torment the recompense of their disobedience.
Then again when they rebelled against the Command of prohibition, We said to them, ‘be you apes, drivenaway.’
And when your Lord proclaimed that necessarily till the Day of Resurrection, He would continue to send suchagainst them who would make them taste evil punishment. Undoubtedly, your Lord necessarily, is swift inretribution, and undoubtedly. He is Forgiving, Merciful.
And We scattered them into communities in the earth, some of them are righteous and some of themotherwise and We tried them with good things and evil that haply they nay return.
Then after them came such degenerate successors who inherited the Book. They take the goods of this worldand say, ‘now we shall be for given’. And if more goods the like of them came to them, they would take them.Was not the covenant of the Book taken from them, that they should say nothing concerning Allah but thetruth, and they have read that? And undoubtedly, the last abode is better for the God-fearing. Have you thenno wisdom?
And those who hold fast to the Book and establish prayer. We waste not the reward of the righteous.
And when We raised mountain over them as that is a canopy and they thought that it will fall upon them, holdfast what We have given to you and remember what is therein, that haply you may be God-fearing.
And O beloved Prophet remember, when your Lord brought forth from the loin of Adam’s children their seedand made themselves witnesses against own selves,’ ‘Am not your Lord? All said, ‘Why not we all bear witness’,lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection, that we were not aware of it.
Or lest you should say, Polytheism was committed by our forefathers before, and we were their offspring! Willyou then destroy us for what was done by wrongdoers?
And thus We explain Our; signs variedly and in order that, they may return.
And O beloved Prophet! Relate to them the story of him to whom We gave Our signs then he stepped awayclearly from them, then Satan followed him and he became of the misguided.
And if We had willed, We would have lifted him on account of Our Signs, but he, clung to the earth andfollowed his desires, then his condition is like a dog, if you attack him, he brings his tongue out and if you leavehim, he brings his tongue out. This is the condition of those who belied Our Signs. So you recount them theadmonition haply they may ponder.
What a bad example is of those who belied Our Signs, and they did wrong their own souls.
Whom so Allah guides, he is on the right path, and whom so Allah leads astray, those, they remained in loss.
Undoubtedly, We have created for Hell many jinn and men, they have hearts, but understand not therewithand the eyes, they see not there with and the ears, they hear not therewith. They are like cattle, nay, moremisguided. They are indeed lying heedless.
And to Allah belongs all the best names, so call Him by them, and leave those who go out from truth withregard to His names, they will soon get for what they have done.
And out of Our making are a community who tell the truth and do justice therewith.
And those who belied Our Signs, soon We shall carry them gradually towards torment whence they will knownot.
And I will let loose them. Undoubtedly, My secret plan is the firmest.
Do they not ponder that there is no relation of insanity to their companion? He is only a warner manifests.
Do they not look into the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and what things that Allah has made, and thatperhaps their term may have come night? Then in what discourse they will believe thereafter
Whomsoever Allah leads astray none is to guide him. And He leaves them to wander in their Contumacy.
They ask you concerning the Hour that when it is to come, Say you ‘the knowledge of it is only with my Lord,He alone will disclose it at its proper time’. It is lying heavy on the heavens and earth; it shall not come uponyou but of a sudden. They ask you, as you have already investigated it well say you, ‘the knowledge of it isonly with Allah’, but most people do not know.
Say you, ‘I am not independent for doing good and bad to my own self, but as Allah please. And if I wouldhave known Unseen, then I would have gathered ample good, and no evil would have touched me, I am only awarner and giver of glad tidings to a people who believe.
It is He Who created you from a single soul, and made therefrom his mate that he may find rest in her, thenwhen the male covered her, she bore a light burden, then carried it about, then when she grew heavy, bothprayed to their Lord, “necessarily if You would give us a child befitting, then undoubtedly, we shall be grateful.”
Then when He gave them a befitting child, they ascribed His associates, in respect of His bestowal but Allah isexalted above from their polytheism.
Do they associate those who make nothing and they are themselves created?
And neither they can give any help to them, nor can they help themselves.
