Alif. Lam. Ra! These are the Verses of the Book, and the indisputable Qur’ān
(On the Day of Resurrection) those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth will ardently wish they had submitted (to Allâh in their life time).
Let them eat and enjoy themselves, and be engrossed in (false) hope. Soon they will come to know (the truth which they denied)!
And never did We destroy a town but there was a known decree for it.
No people can precede their doom, neither can they postpone it.
And they say: ‘O' you to whom the Book of Enlightenment has been revealed! you are most surely insane:
Why do you not bring the Angels to us if you are of the truthful?’
We don’t send down Angels except for a genuine reason, and then they will not be reprieved.
It is We Who have revealed the Book of Enlightenment and surely it is incumbent on us to guard it (against falsehood).
Verily, We sent Messengers before you, among the sects of yore.
And never did a Messenger come to them but that they mocked at him.
This is how We let (the habit of mocking) flourish in the hearts of the Ungodly Sinners.
They don’t have Faith in the Qur'ân though the example of the ancients has gone before.
Even if we were to open for them a gateway to the sky and they were to continue ascending through it,
They would surely say:“’Our eyes have been deprived of sight. Nay, but we have been bewitched’.
Verily, We have placed constellations in the sky and adorned it (with magnificent shining stars) for all to see.
And We protected it from every outcast devil,
Except for the one secretly listening, who is then pursued by a fiery meteor.
As for the earth, We spread it out, placed therein firm hills and caused to grow therein all kinds of things in perfect balance.
We have made for you therein means of livelihood and for those (animals, birds, fish, etc.) whom you don't provide.
There is not a thing, but with Us are the treasures of it. And We don’t send it down except in a known measure.
And We send the winds fertilizing, and cause water to descend from the sky for you to drink, and you are not owners of its stores.
Indeed, it is We Who give life and cause death. And We are the Inheritors.
Indeed, We have complete knowledge of those who have gone before you and those who will come after you.
Verily, your Lord will gather them together. And He is truly All-Wise, All-Knowing.
Verily, We created man from sounding clay of altered black mud.
As for the jinn, we created them aforetime from smokeless fire.
And (recall) when your Lord said unto the Angels: "I am going to create a man from sounding clay of altered black mud.
So, when I have fashioned him completely and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall (ye) down prostrating yourselves to him."
So, the Angels prostrated themselves, all of them together
Except Iblīs. He refused to be of those who prostrated themselves.
(Allâh) said: ‘O’ Iblīs, what is the reason that prevented you form joining others in prostration?’
Iblīs said: ‘It would not be possible for me to prostrate myself to a mortal, whom You created from sounding clay of altered black mud’.
(Allâh) said: ‘Then get out from here! Surely you are expelled!
Verily, the curse will abide in you till the Day of Judgment.’
Iblīs said: ‘My Lord, then reprieve me till the day when they are raised’.
(Allâh) said: ‘Surely, you are among those who are reprieved
Till the day of the appointed time’.
Iblīs said: ‘My Lord, as You have allowed me to be tempted, I shall indeed adorn (the path of error) for them, and tempt everyone of them
Except for your faithful servants among them’.
(Allâh) said: ‘This is the path which leads straight to Me.
Verily, You have no power to enforce obedience over My servants except those who fall into temptation and follow you.
Indeed, Gehenna is the promised place for them all’.
It has seven gates: each gate is designated for a specific group of people.
Indeed, the Pious will be in gardens and springs.
(They will be told): ‘Enter it in peace and security’.
We shall remove from their hearts any sense of resentment, (so they will be like) brothers facing each other on raised couches.
No lassitude will ever touch them therein, neither will they be expelled from it.
Inform My servants that I am truly the Oft-Forgiving, the Most-Merciful,
That My torment is indeed the most sever one.
Tell them about the guests of Abraham
When they entered upon him, saying: ‘Peace’. He said: ‘Indeed, We are afraid of you’.
The Angels said: ‘Do not be afraid! For behold, We announce to you the glad tidings of a boy endowed with wisdom’.
He said: ‘Do you give me the glad tidings (of a boy) when old age has touched me? Of what then do you give me glad tidings?
They said: ‘We announce to you the glad tidings in truth. Thus don't be of those who despair’.
He said: ‘None despairs of the Mercy of his Lord except those who fall far way from the Faith?’
He said: ‘What then is your mission, O’ Messengers?’
They said: ‘We have been sent to a folk of Ungodly Sinners’.
As for the family of Lot. We will definitely save them all,
Except for his wife. We decreed that she should be of those who remain behind.
So when the Messengers came to the family of Lot,
He said: ‘Surely you are strangers here’.
They said: ‘Nay, but we have come to you with (the news of) that (torment) which they have been doubting.
We have come to you with the truth, and we are indeed truthful.
So go forth with your family in a part of the night, and you follow them in the rear, and let none among you look back. But keep going to where you are commanded’.
We decreed for him that commandment, that the root of those (Ungodly sinners) shall be uprooted by early morning.
The people of the city came rejoicing.
‘Lot said: ‘Indeed, these are my guests, thus, don’t disgrace me
And act piously towards Allâh and don’t humiliate me’.
They said: ‘Did we not forbid you to entertain anyone?’
‘Lot said: ‘These are my daughters if you intend to do’.
Verily, by your life, (O’ Muhammad), they were definitely in their state of inebriation, wandering blindly.
So the (dreadful) cry seized them at sunrise.
We turned (the city) and poured down upon them stones of baked clay.
Surely in this there are Signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for those who discern.
Verily, (the ruin of that city) is on a road that still exists.
Surely in this there is a Sign for those who live by Faith.
The Companions of the Thicket were indeed iniquitous people
So We inflicted retribution on them. Both towns are on an open highway.
Indeed, the Companions (of) the Rocky Tract-(the tribe of Thamūd)- denied Our Messengers.
We brought them Our Signs but they persist in turning away from them in a repulsive manner.
They used to grave houses out of the mountains, therein dwelling safely;
So the (dreadful) cry seized them at sunrise in the early morning.
So nothing availed them from what they used to gain.
We didn’t created the heavens, the earth and all that is between them (for naught) but with genuine reason. The Hour is definitely coming. Now, therefore, forgive with gracious forgiveness.
Your Lord is most assuredly the All-knowing Creator.
Indeed, We have bestowed upon you seven of the oft-repeated (Verses) and the Glorious Qur'ân.
Don’t extend your eyes toward what We have bestowed upon certain classes of them, neither do you grieve over them. Lower your wing to those who live by Faith
And say: ‘I am truly sent (by my Lord) to warn (of the severe torment of Hellfire)’.
Like as We sent down on the dividers,
Who have made the Qur'ân into segments.
So, by Your Lord, We will definitely question them all
About what they used to do.
Now, therefore, proclaim what you are commanded and walk away from the Polytheists.
We will definitely suffice you against the scoffers,
Who set up along with Allâh another god. Soon they will come to know (the truth which they denied)!
We certainly know that your heart is seriously affected by what they say.
Now, therefore, glorify the praise of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him).
And worship your Lord (in the way He wants you to worship Him) until there comes to you the certainty (- death)!.
