15:1  Alif. Lam. Ra. These are the verses of the Book and the glorious Quran
15:2  How strongly the unbelievers will wish that they had been Muslims
15:3  (Muhammad), leave them alone to eat and enjoy themselves and let their desires deceive them; they will soon know (the Truth)
15:4  We never destroyed any town without pre-ordaining the fate of its people
15:5  Every nation can only live for the time appointed for it
15:6  (The unbelievers have said), "You to whom the Quran has been revealed are insane
15:7  Why do you not bring down the angels if what you say is true"
15:8  We do not send down angels except for a genuine purpose, at which time none will be given any further respite
15:9  We Ourselves have revealed the Quran and We are its Protectors
15:10  We sent Messengers to the ancient people who lived before you
15:11  No Messenger went to them whom they did not mock
15:12  This is how We cause the hearts of the guilty ones to behave
15:13  They do not believe in the Truth and they exactly follow the tradition of the ancient (unbelievers
15:14  Had We opened a door for them in the sky through which they could easily pass
15:15  they would have said, "Our eyes are bewildered and we have been affected by magic."
15:16  We have made constellations in the sky and decorated them for the onlookers
15:17  We have protected them from every condemned devil
15:18  except for those who stealthily try to listen to the heavens, but who are chased away by a bright flame
15:19  We have spread out the earth, fixed mountains thereupon and caused everything to grow to its proper weigh
15:20  to provide you and those for whose sustenance you are not responsible, with the necessities of life
15:21  With Us is the source of everything and We do not send it down except in a known quantity
15:22  We send impregnating winds and send down water from the sky for you to drink and you have no (control over its) storage
15:23  It is We who give life and cause things to die and We are the sole Heirs
15:24  We know the people who lived before you and those who will come into existence after you
15:25  Your Lord will resurrect them all; He is All-wise and All-knowing
15:26  We have created the human being out of pure mud-moulded cla
15:27  and the jinn before (the human being) of smokeless fire
15:28  When your Lord said to the angels, "I will create the human being out of pure mud-moulded clay
15:29  When it is properly shaped and I have blown My Spirit into it, you should then bow down in prostration"
15:30  All the angels prostrated before Ada
15:31  except Iblis who refused to join with the others in prostration
15:32  God asked Iblis, "What made you not join the others in prostration?"
15:33  Iblis replied, "I did not want to prostrate before a human being whom You have created out of mud-moulded clay"
15:34  God told him, "Get out of the garden; you are rejecte
15:35  and will be subjected to condemnation until the Day of Judgment."
15:36  Iblis prayed, "Lord, grant me respite until the Day of Judgment"
15:37  The Lord said, "Your request is grante
15:38  for an appointed time."
15:39  Iblis said, "Lord, because you have caused me to go astray, I shall make earthly things attractive to (people) and mislead all of the
15:40  except Your sincere servants"
15:41  God said, "The path which leads to Me is a straigh
15:42  and you have no authority over My servants except the erring ones who follow you
15:43  Hell is the promised place for them all
15:44  It has seven gates and each gate is assigned for a certain group of people
15:45  The pious will live in gardens with stream
15:46  and they will be told to enter there in peace and safety
15:47  We shall remove all hatred from their breasts and make them as brothers reclining on thrones facing one another
15:48  No fatigue will touch them nor will they be expelled therefrom."
15:49  (Muhammad), tell My servants that I am All-forgiving and All-merciful
15:50  and that My punishment is a painful one
15:51  Tell them about the guests of Abraha
15:52  who came to him saying, "Peace be with you." Abraham said, "We are afraid of you"
15:53  They replied, "Do not be afraid. We have brought you the glad news of (the birth) of a learned son"
15:54  Abraham asked, "Are you giving me the glad news of a son in my old age? What reason can you give for such glad news?"
15:55  They said, "We have given you the glad news for a true reason so do not despair"
15:56  He said, "No one despairs of the mercy of his Lord except those who are in error
15:57  Messengers, what is your task?"
15:58  They said, "We are sent to a sinful people
15:59  Only the family of Lot will all be saved
15:60  except his wife who is doomed to be left behind."
15:61  When the Messengers came to the family of Lot
15:62  he said, "You seem to be strangers"
15:63  They replied, "We have come to you about the matter which the (unbelievers) have rejected
15:64  We have come to you for a genuine purpose and We are true in what we say
15:65  Leave the town with your family sometime during the night. Walk behind them and let no one turn around. Proceed as you are commanded."
15:66  We informed him that the unbelievers would be utterly destroyed
15:67  The people of the town rejoicingl
15:68  rushed towards the house of Lot. Lot said to them, "These are my guests. Do not disgrace me
15:69  Have fear of God and do not humiliate me"
15:70  They replied, "Did we not forbid you to bring anyone to your house?"
15:71  Lot said, "These are my daughters if you want them."
15:72  By your life! In their drunkenness they were truly blind
15:73  An explosion struck them at sunrise
15:74  We turned the town upside-down and showered on them lumps of baked clay
15:75  In this there is evidence (of the Truth) for the prudent ones
15:76  That town lies on a road which still exists
15:77  In this there is evidence (of the Truth) for the believers
15:78  Since the People of the Forest were unjust
15:79  We afflicted them with punishment. Both people had clear (divine) authority among them
15:80  People of Hijr rejected the Messengers
15:81  We showed them miracles but they ignored them
15:82  They would carve secure houses out of the mountains
15:83  An explosion struck them in the morning
15:84  Out of what they had gained, nothing proved to be of any benefit to them
15:85  We have created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, for a genuine purpose. The Day of Judgment will certainly approach, so (Muhammad) forgive them graciously
15:86  Your Lord is certainly the All-knowing Creator
15:87  (Muhammad), We have given you the seven most repeated (verses) and the great Quran
15:88  Do not yearn for other people's property and wives and do not grieve (that they do not believe). Be kind to the believers
15:89  Say, "Indeed, I am simply one who warns."
15:90  (We have given you the Quran) as We had given (the Bible) to those who divided themselves into group
15:91  and also divided the Quran believing in some parts and rejecting others
15:92  By the Lord, We will hold them all responsibl
15:93  for what they have don
15:94  Preach what you have been commanded to and stay away from the pagans
15:95  We shall help you against those who mock yo
15:96  and believe other things to be equal to God. They will soon know the truth
15:97  We certainly know that you feel sad about what they say against you
15:98  Glorify and praise your Lord and be with those who prostrate themselves before God
15:99  Worship your Lord until you achieve the ultimate certainty
