15:1  Alif L'am Ra. These are the verses of the Divine Book, the Glorious Qur’an which makes the things clear
15:2  The Day will come when the unbelievers will wish that they were Muslims
15:3  Leave them alone to eat and enjoy themselves and be deluded by false hopes, for soon they will find out the Truth
15:4  Never did We destroy a town whose term of life was not ordained beforehand
15:5  No people can forestall their doom, nor can they postpone it
15:6  They say: "O you to whom the reminder (The Qur'an) is being revealed! You are surely insane
15:7  Why don’t you bring us the angels, if you are of the truthful ones?"
15:8  O Muhammad, tell them: "We do not send down the angels except for just cause (to execute Our scourge), and when they come, people are not given respite
15:9  Surely We have revealed this reminder (The Qur'an); and We will surely preserve it Ourself
15:10  Certainly We sent Messengers before you among the early nations
15:11  but whenever a Messenger came to them, they mocked him
15:12  Thus do We let doubt creep into the hearts of the criminals
15:13  that they do not believe in it (The Qur'an), despite the examples of the people who passed before them
15:14  Even if we had opened a gate in Heaven and they ascend through it and keep on ascending
15:15  still they would have said, 'Our eyes have been dazzled; rather we have been bewitched.'"
15:16  It is We who have decked the heavens with constellations and made them fair- seeming for the beholders
15:17  and We have guarded them from every accursed Satan
15:18  Any Satan that steals a hearing, there follows him a fiery comet
15:19  We have spread out the earth and set mountains upon it; and caused to grow every suitable thing therein
15:20  and We provided therein means of sustenance for you and many other creatures to whom you do not provide
15:21  There is nothing which is not in Our inexhaustible treasure and sent down in appropriate measure
15:22  We send the fertilizing winds and send down water from the sky for you to drink; it is not you who hold the storage of this wealth
15:23  Certainly it is We who give life and cause to die, and We are the inheritors of all
15:24  Certainly We have full knowledge of those who have gone before you and certainly We know those who will come later
15:25  Surely your Lord will gather them together; surely He is Wise, Knowledgeable
15:26  We created man from sounding clay, black mud moulded into shape
15:27  while before him We had created Jinn from smokeless fire
15:28  Remember when your Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create a man from sounding clay, black mud moulded into shape
15:29  when I complete his moulding and breath into him of My spirit, kneel down and prostrate before him."
15:30  Accordingly the angels prostrated altogether
15:31  except Iblees (The Satan); he refused to join those who prostrated
15:32  Allah asked: "O Iblees! What is the matter with you that you did not join those who prostrated?"
15:33  He replied: "It does not behoove me to prostrate myself to this man whom You have created from sounding clay, black mud moulded into shape."
15:34  Allah said: "Get out of here, you are accursed
15:35  The curse will remain on you till the Day of Judgement."
15:36  At this Iblees requested: "Lord! Give me respite till the Day of Resurrection."
15:37  Allah said: "All right! You are given the respit
15:38  till the Day of appointed time."
15:39  Iblees said: "Lord! Since You let me go astray, I will make evil fair-seeming to them on earth and I will seduce them al
15:40  except those of them who are Your sincere devotees."
15:41  Allah said: "This course of action is all right with M
15:42  - you will not have any authority over My devotees except those misguided ones who follow you
15:43  They will be all destined for Hell
15:44  which has seven gates, each gate will be assigned to a separate group from among them."
15:45  The righteous will be in the midst of the gardens and fountains of paradis
15:46  and it will be said to them: "Enter into these in peace and security."
15:47  We shall remove all hatred from their hearts -they will become like brothers and sit on couches face to face
15:48  No fatigue will touch them in there, nor will they ever be asked to leave
15:49  O Prophet! Tell My devotees that I am indeed the Forgiving, the Merciful
15:50  but at the same time My punishment is also the most painful punishment
15:51  Tell them about the guests of Abraham
15:52  They entered upon them and said: "Peace be upon you!" But he replied: "Surely we are afraid of you."
15:53  They answered: "Do not be afraid of us! We have come to you with good news of a son endowed with knowledge."
15:54  He said: "Are you giving me the good news of a son when I have become old? What kind of good news you are giving?"
15:55  They replied: "We are giving you true good news; you should not be of those who despair."
15:56  He said: "Who would despair of the mercy of his Lord except one who goes astray?"
15:57  Then he asked: "On what expedition you have been sent, O emissaries of Allah?"
15:58  They replied: "We have been sent to punish a criminal nation
15:59  with the exception of Lot’s (Lot's) family; we will certainly rescue them al
15:60  except his wife, who, Allah says, has been destined to remain with those who will stay behind."
15:61  So when the emissaries came to the family of Lot
15:62  he said: " You appear to be strangers."
15:63  They said: "We have come to you with that concerning which these people had doubts
15:64  We have come to you with the Truth of Allah’s decree and we are telling you the truth
15:65  You should, therefore, depart with your family during the last hours of the night and you yourself should follow them at their rear; let no one of you look back, keep on going where you are commanded to go."
15:66  We informed him about this decree of Ours that the roots of the sinners of his city would be cut off by the morning
15:67  The people of the town came rejoicing to the house of Lot when they heard the news of those two young male visitors
15:68  Lot said: "They are my guests, so do not disgrace me
15:69  Have fear of Allah and do not put me to shame."
15:70  They said: "Have we not forbidden you to plead for the rest of the world?"
15:71  He said: "Here are my daughters, if you must act."
15:72  By your life, O Prophet Muhammad, they were madly blundering in their intoxication of lust
15:73  So the mighty blast overtook them at sunrise
15:74  Thus We turned the town upside down and rained down on them brimstones of baked clay
15:75  Surely there are major lessons in this for those who investigate
15:76  and this smitten town still lies right on the permanent highway on which the unbelievers travel during their business trips
15:77  Indeed there is a sign in this for the true believers
15:78  The people of Al- Aikah (the nation of Prophet Shu’aib) were also wrongdoers
15:79  So We inflicted retribution on them. The ruined towns of these two nations are lying on an open road
15:80  The people of Hijr also denied their Messenger
15:81  We gave them Our signs, but they ignored them
15:82  They hewed their homes in the mountains for safety
15:83  But the mighty blast seized them one morning, and all their labor of building their homes through carving the rocks did not avail them
15:84  We have not created the Heavens and the Earth, and all that lies between them but to manifest the Truth
15:85  The Hour of Doom is sure to come, so overlook their misbehavior in a gracious manner
15:86  Surely your Lord is the All-Knowing Creator
15:87  We have given you the Seven Verses that are worthy of recitation over and over again (Surah Al-Fatiha) and the Glorious Qur'an
15:88  Do not look at the worldly wealth which We have given to different people among them, nor grieve at their condition. Leave them alone, attend to the believers in kindness
15:89  and tell the unbelievers: "Surely I am only a plain Warner."
15:90  This warning is like the warning which We sent down to the schismatics
15:91  the one who divided their Qur’an into separate parts, believing in some and denying others
15:92  So by your Lord! We will question them al
15:93  about their doings
15:94  Therefore, proclaim publicly what you are commanded and turn away from the pagans
15:95  Surely We Ourself will suffice you against the scoffers
15:96  those who place other deities alongside Allah, will soon come to know their folly
15:97  We know that your heart is distressed by what they say against you
15:98  The cure of your heart’s distress is that you should celebrate the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves before Him
15:99  and worship your Lord until there comes to you which is certain (death)
