Alif-Lam-Raa. These are the verses of a Book and of a Bright Quran.
The infidels would desire ardently that they had been Muslims.
Leave them to eat and enjoy and let the hope may amuse them now then they are about to know.

And not any messenger came to them, but they mocked at him.
In the same way, We make a way for this mockery in the hearts of the culprits.
They believe not therein. and already the example of the ancients has gone forth.
And if We open any door for them in the heaven that they may ascend through it in the day.
Even then they would say, 'Our sights have been tied, rather we have been mesmerized.'
And We have indeed made constellations in the heaven and have adorned it for the beholders.
And We have guarded it from every accursed Satan.
But whoever goes to hear stealthily, then he is pursued by a bright flame.
And We have stretched the earth and put therein anchors, and caused to grow therein everything proportionately.

And verily it is We, Who give life, and We Who cause death and We Who are Inheritor.
And We do know those who went ahead among you and We do know those who remained behind among you.

And verily We have made man from ringing clay, which was in reality black smelling mud.
And We have made Jinns before from the smokeless fire.
And recall when your Lord said to the angels, "1 am about to create human-being from the ringing clay which is of the black smelling mud."
Then when, I had formed him and have breathed into him of My special esteemed spirit, then fall down for him prostrate.
Then all the angels fell down prostrate together.
Save Iblis. He refused to be with the prostate.
Allah said `O Iblis, what happened to you that you did remain aloof from the prostate.'
He said 'It is not befitting me that I should prostrate myself before a human being whom You have made from the ringing clay which was of the black smelling mud.'

Till the Known Day.
He said 'O my Lord, I swear of that. You led me astray, I will deceive them in the earth, and certainly I will mislead all of them.
But those of them who are Your selected bondmen.
Allah said, 'This path leads to me straight.'
Verily, over My bondmen you have no control, save those misguided ones who follow you.
And verily, Hell is the promised place of them all.
It has seven entrances. For each entrance there is an appointed portion of them.
No doubt, the God-fearing are in the gardens and fountains.
Enter them with peace, in security.
And We took out whatever rancorous were there in their breasts, they are brothers among each other, sitting upon couches facing each other.
Neither any fatigue touches them, nor shall they be driven out there from.
Inform My bondmen that undoubtedly, I am the Forgiving, the Merciful.
And that the torment of Mine is the torment painful.
And tell them about Ibrahim's guests.
When they came to him, they said 'peace'. He said 'We feel afraid of you.'
They said 'do not fear, we give you glad tidings of a son possessing knowledge.'
He said, 'Do you give me glad tidings inspite of the fact that old age has touched me.' of what then you give me the glad tidings'?
They said 'We have given you the glad tidings with truth be not disappointed.'
He said, 'Who is disappointed of the Mercy of his Lord but those who have gone astray.'
He said 'What now is your business O Messenger.
They said 'We have been sent towards a guilty people.
But the family of Lut We shall save them all.
But his wife, We have decided that she will be among those who remains, behind.
Then when the messengers came to the household of Lut.
He said, 'Verily, you are a people stranger.'
They said 'Nay, we have brought to you that in which they were doubting.
And We have brought to you the true Command and we are surely truthful.
Therefore go away with your family whilst a portion of night is left and you yourself follow then and let no one of you look back and go straight whither you are Commanded.

'O beloved' by your life, verily they are wandering about in their intoxication.

Then We made the upper side of that town lower side and rained upon them stones of baked clay.
No doubt, in that are signs for men of sagacity.
And obviously that town is on the road that still exists.
No doubt, in that are signs for the believers.
And no doubt, the dwellers of the thicket were assuredly unjust.
Then We took vengeance on them; and no doubt both these towns lie on a manifest way.
And no doubt, the people of Hijr belied the messengers.
And We gave them Our signs, but they kept their faces away from them.
And they used to hew out houses in the mountains without fear.
Then the roaring voice overtook them in the morning.

And no doubt, We gave you seven verses, which are being repeated. And the Grand Quran.

What they used to do.
Therefore say them openly what you have been Commanded, and turn away your faces from the polytheists.
No doubt, We suffice you against those mockers.
Those who set up another deity against Allah, then they will now know.
And We do indeed know that your heart straitens at what they say.
Then praising your Lord, speak glory of Him and be of those who prostrate.
And remains worshipping your Lord till death comes to you.
