11:1  Alif.Lam.Ra. A book whose signs are confirmed then detailed, from one wise, aware:
11:2  That you not worship except God, - indeed, I am to you from Him a warner and a herald of glad tidings;
11:3  And that you seek forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him. He will cause you to enjoy a good provision to a named term, and will give His grace to every one endowed with grace; but if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great day.
11:4  To God is your return, and He is powerful over everything.
11:5  Lo, indeed they fold up their breasts, that they may hide from Him. Lo, when they cover themselves with their garments, He knows what they conceal and what they display. Indeed, He is knower of what the breasts own.
11:6  And there is no creature in the earth but upon God is its provision. And He knows its settlement and its resting-place; all is in a clear Book.
11:7  And He is the one who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and His throne was on the water - that He might try you, which of you is best in deeds. But if you say, 'Indeed, you will be raised up after death,' Those who disbelieve will surely say, 'This is not except clear magic.'
11:8  And surely if We keep back from them the punishment to a numbered nation, they will surely say, 'What detains it?' - Lo, the day it comes to them there is no turning it away from them, and what they mocked at will encompass them.
11:9  And if We made man taste mercy from us then We removed it from him, indeed, he is despairing, ungrateful;
11:10  And if We make him taste favour after distress has touched him, he will surely say, 'The evils have gone from me;' Indeed, he is exultant, boastful.
11:11  Except those who are patient and do good works; those - for them is forgiveness and a great reward.
11:12  Then perhaps you are leaving some of what is inspired to you and your breast is straitened by it that they say, 'Why is not a treasure sent down on him? Or an angel come with him? - You are only a warner, and God is over everything a trustee.
11:13  Or they say, 'He has forged it.' Say, 'Then bring ten forged chapters like it; and call upon whom you can beside God, if you are truthful.'
11:14  And if they do not answer you, then know that it is revealed by the knowledge of God, and that there is no god but He - so are you those who submit?
11:15  Whoever desires the worldly life and its adornment, We will pay them in full their works therein, and they therein shall have no diminution.
11:16  Those are the ones for whom there is nothing in the hereafter except the fire; and void is what they made therein and vain is what they were doing.
11:17  Then is he who is upon a clear proof from his Lord, and a witness from Him recites it, and before it is the book of Moses, a model and a mercy? Those believe in it; and whoever disbelieves in it of the confederates, then the fire is his promise. So do not be in doubt of it; indeed, it is the truth from your Lord, but most of mankind do not believe.
11:18  And who is more unjust than he who forges against God a lie? Those shall be set before their Lord, and the witnesses shall say, 'These are those who lied against their Lord.' Lo, God's curse is on the unjust
11:19  Those who turn away from the path of God, and seek to make it crooked, and they are disbelievers in the hereafter.
11:20  Those cannot escape in the earth, and they have no patrons beside God. Doubled for them is the punishment. They could not hear, nor did they see.
11:21  Those are those who lose themselves; and what they forged has gone astray from them.
11:22  No doubt that in the hereafter, they are those who lose most.
11:23  Indeed, those who believed and did good works, and humbled themselves to their Lord, those are the fellows of the Garden; they shall dwell therein forever.
11:24  The likeness of the two parties is as the blind and the deaf, and the seeing and the hearing; Are they equal in likeness? Then will you not remember?
11:25  And certainly We sent Noah to his people, 'Indeed, I am to you a clear warner;
11:26  That you not worship except God. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a painful day.'
11:27  But the chiefs of those who disbelieved of his people said, 'We see you not but a mortal like us, and we do not see any follow you except those who they are the reprobates amongst us by a rash judgment; and we do not see you have any grace over us; nay, we think you are liars.'
11:28  He said, 'O my people! Have you seen if I am on a clear proof from my Lord, and He has given me mercy from Him, but you are blinded to it; shall we force you to it while you are averse to it?
11:29  O my people! I ask of you no wealth for it; my reward is only upon God. And I will not drive away those who believe. Indeed, they shall meet their Lord. But I see you a people who are ignorant.
11:30  And, O my people! Who would help me against God if I drive them away? Then will you not remember?
11:31  I do not say to you, "With me are the treasures of God," nor "I know the unseen," and I do not say, "Indeed, I am an angel;" nor do I say for those whom your eyes despise, "God will not give them good;" - God is most knowing of what is in their souls - indeed, I then will surely be of the unjust.'
11:32  They said, 'O Noah! Certainly you have wrangled with us, and multiplied wranglings with us; so bring us what you threaten us with, if you are of the truthful.'
11:33  He said, 'God will only bring it on you if He will, and you cannot escape;
11:34  And my advice will not profit you, should I desire to advise you, if God desires to lead you into error. He is your Lord, and to Him you shall be returned.'
11:35  Or do they say, 'He has forged it'? Say, 'If I have forged it, then on me is my sin. But I am clear of what sins you do.'
11:36  And it was inspired to Noah that, 'None shall believe from your people except he who has believed already; so do not sorrow for what they do.
11:37  And make the ship under Our eyes, and Our inspiration; and do not address me concerning those who have done wrong; indeed, they shall be drowned.'
11:38  And he made the ship, and everytime the chiefs of his people passed by him, they jested at him. He said, 'If you jest at us, then indeed, we shall jest at you as you jest,
11:39  And soon you shall know to whom a punishment will come which shall shame him, and on whom there shall alight a lasting punishment.'
11:40  Until when Our command came, and the oven boiled, We said, 'Load in it two of every pair, and your family - except him against whom the saying has preceded, and whoever believes.' And there believed not with him except a few.
11:41  And he said, 'Ride in it; In the name of God is its course, and its anchorage. Indeed, my Lord is certainly forgiving, compassionate.'
11:42  And it sailed with them in waves like mountains; and Noah cried to his son - and He was apart, 'O my son! Ride with us and do not be with the disbelievers.'
11:43  He said, 'I will soon take refuge to a mountain which shall defend me from the water.' He said, 'There is no defender today from the command of God, except him on whom He has mercy.' And the waves came between them, and he was of the drowned.
11:44  And it was said, 'O earth! Swallow your water!' And, 'O heaven! Hold!' And the water abated; and the affair was decided, and it settled on Al-Judi, and it was said, 'Away with the unjust people!'
11:45  And Noah called to his Lord and said, 'My Lord! Indeed, my son is of my family, and indeed, your promise is true, and you are the wisest of the wise ones.'
11:46  He said, 'O Noah! Indeed, he is not of your family; indeed, it is a deed not right. So do not ask Me what you have no knowledge of. Indeed, I admonish you lest you be of the ignorant.'
11:47  He said, 'My Lord! Indeed, I seek refuge with you from asking you what I do not have knowledge of. And unless you forgive me and have mercy on me, I will be of the losers.'
11:48  It was said, 'O Noah! Go down with peace from Us and blessings on you and on the nations of those with you; and nations We will soon give enjoyment, then there shall touch them from Us a painful punishment.'
11:49  That is of the news of the unseen, which We inspire to you. You did not know it, nor did your people, before this. So be patient; indeed, the end is for those who fear.
11:50  And to 'Ad their brother Hud. He said, 'O my people! Serve God; you have no god other than Him. You are not except forgers.
11:51  O my people! I ask you no reward for it; my reward is only from Him who originated me; have you then no sense?
11:52  And O my people! Ask forgiveness of your Lord; then turn to Him; He will send the sky upon you pouring abundantly; and He will increase you in strength to your strength; And do not then turn away, sinners.'
11:53  They said, 'O Hud! You have not come to us with a clear proof; and we will not leave our gods for your saying, and we are not believers in you.
11:54  We only say some of our gods have attacked you with evil.' He said, 'Indeed, I call God to witness, and you bear witness that I am free from what you associate
11:55  Besides Him. So plot against me all together, then give me no respite.
11:56  Indeed, I rely upon God, my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature He takes it by its forelock. Indeed, my Lord is on a straight path.
11:57  So if you turn away, then verily I conveyed to you what I was sent to you with; and my Lord will give succession to a people other than you, and you cannot harm Him at all; Indeed, my Lord is guardian over everything.'
11:58  And when Our command came, We saved Hud and those who believed with him, by a mercy from Us; and We saved them from a harsh punishment.
11:59  And that was 'Ad; they denied the signs of their Lord, and rebelled against His messengers, and followed the command of every obstinate tyrant.
11:60  And they were followed in this world by a curse, and on the Day of Resurrection. Lo, indeed, 'Ad disbelieved their Lord. Lo, away with 'Ad, the people of Hud.'
11:61  And to Thamud their brother Salih. He said, 'O my people! Worship God; you have no god other than Him. He produced you from the earth, and made you live in it. So ask forgiveness of Him then turn to Him; indeed, my Lord is near, answers.
11:62  They said, 'O Salih! Verily you were amongst us one we hoped in before this. Do you forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? And indeed, we surely are in hesitating doubt concerning what you call us to.
11:63  He said, 'O my people! Have you seen; if I am on a clear proof from my Lord, and He has given me mercy from Him, then who will help me against God if I rebel against Him? Then you would not increase me other than in loss.
11:64  And O my people! This she-camel of God is a sign for you; so leave her to eat in God's earth, and do not touch her with evil, then a near punishment will take you.'
11:65  But they hamstrung her, so he said, 'Enjoy in your home three days; - that is a promise not to be belied.'
11:66  So when Our command came, We saved Salih and those who believed with him, by a mercy from us, and from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, your Lord, He is the Strong, the Mighty.
11:67  And the noise took those who had done wrong; and in the morning they lay prone in their dwellings.
11:68  As though they had not dwelt therein. Lo, indeed, Thamud disbelieved their Lord. Lo, away with Thamud.
11:69  And certainly Our messengers came to Abraham with glad tidings; they said, 'Peace,' He said, 'Peace,' And he did not delay to bring a roasted calf.
11:70  But when he saw their hands reached not to it, he knew them not, and felt a fear of them. They said, 'Fear not. Indeed, we are sent to the people of Lot.'
11:71  And his wife was standing, and she laughed. Then We gave her glad tidings of Isaac and after Isaac, Jacob.
11:72  She said, 'O woe is me! Shall I bear a son while I am an old woman, and this my husband is an old man? Indeed, this is surely a wonderful thing.'
11:73  They said, 'Do you wonder at the command of God? God's mercy and His blessings be upon you, people of the house. Indeed, He is praiseworthy, glorious.'
11:74  And when the terror had gone from Abraham, and the glad tidings came to him, he wrangled with us about the people of Lot;
11:75  Indeed, Abraham was certainly clement, compassionate, penitent.
11:76  O Abraham! Turn away from this; indeed, the command of your Lord has already come; and indeed, there is coming to them a punishment not to be turned back.'
11:77  And when Our messengers came to Lot, he was grieved for them; and he was straitened for them, and he said, 'This is a troublesome day.'
11:78  And his people came to him, rushing to him, and before they used to do evil deeds. He said, 'O my people! These are my daughters, they are purer for you; so fear God, and do not disgrace me in my guests; - is there not among you a rightly directed man?'
11:79  They said, 'Certainly you already know we have no right in your daughters; and indeed, you surely know what we desire.'
11:80  He said, 'Would that I had strength against you; or I could take refuge in a strong support.'
11:81  They said, 'O Lot! Indeed, we are messengers of your Lord, they shall not reach you; so travel with your people in a part of the night, and let none of you turn round except your wife; indeed, it shall befall her what befalls them. Indeed, their appointment is the morning. Is not the morning near?'
11:82  So when Our command came, We made its high parts its low parts. And We rained upon them stones of baked clay, one upon another,
11:83  Marked with your Lord, and it is not far from the wrongdoers.
11:84  And to Midian their brother Shuaib. He said, 'O my people! Serve God; you have no God other than Him. And do not diminish the measure and the weight. Indeed, I see you with good; and indeed, I fear for you the punishment of an encompassing day.
11:85  And O my people! Fulfill the measure and the weight with justice, and do not diminish the people of their things; and do not mischief in the earth, working corruption.
11:86  God's residue is better for you, if you are believers. And I am not a guardian over you.'
11:87  They said, 'O Shuaib! Does your prayer command you that we should leave what our fathers served, or that we leave doing, concerning our wealth, what we will? Indeed you, surely you are the clement, the rightly directed.'
11:88  He said, 'O my people! Have you seen if I am on a clear proof from my Lord, and He has provided me with a good provision from Him? And I do not desire that I come behind you to that which I forbid you from; I desire nothing except reformation, so far as I am able. And my success is not except with God; on Him do I rely, and to Him I turn.
11:89  And O my people! Let not my schism make you definitely sin that there befall you the like of what befell the people of Noah, or the people of Hud or the people of Salih; and the people of Lot are not far off from you.
11:90  And ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him; indeed, my Lord is compassionate, loving.'
11:91  They said, 'O Shuaib! We do not understand much of what you say, and indeed, we surely see you weak amongst us; and if not for your tribe surely we would have stoned you, and you are not mighty against us.'
11:92  He said, 'O my people! Is my tribe mightier against you than God? And you have taken Him behind your backs. Indeed, my Lord encompasses what you do.
11:93  And O my people! Work according to your position; indeed, I am working. Soon you will know to whom will come a punishment disgracing him, and who is a liar. And watch; indeed, I am with you a watcher.'
11:94  And when Our command came We saved Shuaib, and those who believed with him, by a mercy from Us; and the noise seized those who had done wrong, and they became prone in their homes,
11:95  As though they had not dwelt therein. Lo, away with Midian. As Thamud was done away.
11:96  And certainly We already sent Moses with Our signs and a clear authority
11:97  To Pharaoh and his chiefs; but they followed Pharaoh's command, and Pharaoh's command was not rightly directed.
11:98  He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and take them down to water at the fire, - and evil is the watering place to water at.
11:99  And they were followed in this by a curse, and on the Day of Resurrection - evil is the gift which they will be given.
11:100  That is of the news of the cities. We relate it to you; - some of them are standing and some mown down.
11:101  We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves. And their gods which they called upon besides God did not avail them anything when the command of your Lord came; And they did not increase them other than in ruin.
11:102  And thus is the seizing of your Lord when He seizes the cities while they are unjust; indeed, His seizing is painful, severe.
11:103  Indeed, in that is surely a sign to him who fears the punishment of the hereafter. That is a day for which mankind will be gathered, and that is a witnessed day.
11:104  We will not delay it, except to a numbered term.
11:105  The day it shall come no soul shall speak except by His permission, and amongst them the unhappy and the happy.
11:106  And as for those who are unhappy, then in the fire. For them therein is groaning and sobbing.
11:107  To dwell therein for ever, so long as the heavens and the earth endure; except what your Lord willed. Indeed, your Lord is doer of what He desires.
11:108  As for those who are made happy, then in the Garden, to dwell therein for ever, so long as the heavens and the earth endure; except what your Lord willed - a gift without break.
11:109  So do not be in doubt concerning what these serve; - they only serve as their fathers served before; and indeed, We will surely pay them in full their portion undiminished.
11:110  And certainly We already gave Moses the Book; then it was disagreed about, and if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, surely it would have been decided between them; and indeed, they surely are in hesitating doubt of it.
11:111  And indeed, each your Lord will surely pay them in full for their works; indeed, He is aware of what they do.
11:112  So go straight, as you are commanded, and whosoever turns with you; and do not be immoderate; - indeed, He is seer of what you do.
11:113  And do not lean unto those who do wrong lest the fire touch you, and you have no patrons besides God, then you shall not be helped.
11:114  And be steadfast in prayer at the two ends of the day, and near of the night; indeed, the good works remove the evil works; - that is a reminder to the mindful.
11:115  And be patient, then indeed, God does not waste the reward of the good-doers.
11:116  And why were there not of the generations before you those endowed with a remnant, forbidding corruption in the earth - except a few of those whom We saved of them? But those who did wrong followed what they enjoyed therein, and were sinners.
11:117  And your Lord would not destroy the cities unjustly while its people are those who do well.
11:118  And if your Lord had willed, surely He would have made mankind one nation; but they will not cease to differ.
11:119  Except him on whom your Lord has mercy on. And for that He created them. And the word of your Lord is fulfilled, 'I will surely fill Hell with jinns and mankind all together.'
11:120  And all We relate to you of the news of the messengers is that with which We make firm your heart. And there has come to you, in this, the truth and an admonition and a reminder to the believers.
11:121  And say to those who do not believe, 'Work according to your position; indeed, we are working.
11:122  And wait; indeed, we are those who wait.'
11:123  And God's is the unseen of the heavens and the earth; and to Him the affair will be returned, all of it. So serve Him and rely on Him; and your Lord is not heedless of what you do.
