We have sent forth before you Messengers among the factions of the ancients
But no Messenger came to them except he was mocked

We send the winds fertilizing, and We send down out of heaven water, from which you drink and you are not its treasurers
And surely, it is We who give life and make to die. We are the Inheritor
We know those of you who press forward, and We know the laggards
and it is your Lord who will gather them. He is Wise, Knowing
We created mankind from clay, molded from mud
and before him We created the jinn from smokeless fire
When your Lord said to the angels: 'See, I am creating a mortal from clay of molded mud

All the angels prostrated themselves

except the devoted amongst Your worshippers
He (Allah) said: 'This is for Me the Right Pat
over My worshipers you have no authority, except the perverse that follow you
Gehenna (Hell) will be the promise for all of them
It has seven gates, and through each gate a portion of them belong
But the cautious shall live amongst gardens and fountains

'Do not be afraid, ' they answered. 'We come to give you glad tidings of a knowledgeable child.
He said: 'What is this, do you bring me glad tidings even though I am old? ' Of what do you give me glad tidings?
They replied: 'In truth we have given you glad tidings, do not be one of those who despair.
He replied: 'And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord, except those that are astray

Except Lot's family, of whom we shall save all
but his wife. We decreed that she should be amongst those who remain behind
And when the envoys came to the family of Lot
he said to them: 'I do not know you.
'No, ' they replied: 'We bring you (news) of that concerning which they were doubting

He said: 'Here are my daughters; take them (in marriage), if you would be doing.
By your life, they wandered blindly in their dazzlement
At sunrise a dreadful Shout seized them
We laid it (the city) upside down and rained stones of baked clay upon them
Surely, in that there are signs for those who contemplate
Indeed, it is on a way which still exists
Surely, in that there is a sign for those who believe
The dwellers of the Thicket were harmdoers
On them, too, We took vengeance, and they are both on a clear roadway

But the Shout seized them in the morning
and that which they had earned did not help them
We did not create the heavens and the earth, and what is between them except in truth. The Hour is sure to come, therefore, forgive them with a graciouspardon
Your Lord is the Creator, the Knower
We have given you the seven dual (verses, Al Fatihah) and the Mighty Holy Reading (Koran)
Do not stretch your eyes to that We have given pairs of them to enjoy, nor sorrow for them, and lower your wing to the believers

and those who set up other gods with Allah, indeed, they will soon know
Indeed, We know your chest is straitened by that they say
Exalt with the praise of your Lord and be one of those who prostrate
Worship your Lord till the certainty (death) comes to you
