16:1  Allah’s command has come, so do not hasten it. Glorified is Him; and exalted about what they are associating.
16:2  He sends down the angels with the Spirit among His command, upon whoever He wills among His slaves: “Surely warn that there is no God except Me, so show the piety of Me.”
16:3  He created the skies and the earth with the right. He is exalted about what they are associating.
16:4  He created the human from a sperm-drop, so behold he is an obvious opponent.
16:5  And the livestock, He created them for you. Within them are warmth and benefits, and from it you are eating.
16:6  And for you within them a beauty, when you are resting, and when you are sending them out.
16:7  And they carry your heavy loads to a town you could not have reached except with the breath's exertion. Surely Your Lord is A Clement, Merciful.
16:8  And the horses, and the mules, and the donkeys, to ride them, and for adornment. And He creates what you are not knowing.
16:9  And upon Allah the pathway’s endeavor, and from them are inequitable. And had He willed; He would have guided you all.
16:10  He is the one Who sends down for you from the sky water. From it for you is a drink, and from it trees within it you are pasturing.
16:11  He plants for you the vegetation by it, and the olives, and the date-palms, and the grapes, and from all the fruitage. Surely, within that is a verse for a kinfolk who think.
16:12  And He subserviated for you the night and the day; and the sun, and the moon, and the stars are subservient with His command. Surely, within that is verses for a reasoning kinfolk.
16:13  And whatsoever He produces for you in the earth different its colors. Surely, within that is a verse for a kinfolk who remember.
16:14  And He is the one who subserviated the sea for you, to eat from it, soft meat, and to exit out ornaments from it, you wear them. And you see the arks cleaving, through it and to seek from His bounty, and perhaps you may be thankful.
16:15  And he threw stabilizers mountains in it, lest it be shaken by you; and rivers, and pathways, perhaps you may guide.
16:16  And landmarks, and by the stars they find guidance.
16:17  So is He who creates, like him who does not create? So, will yourselves not be remembering?
16:18  And if you count Allah’s graces, you will not enumerate them. Surely Allah is Forgiver, Merciful.
16:19  And Allah knows what you are secreting and what you are announcing.
16:20  And those who are being called without Allah are not creating a thing, and they are created.
16:21  They are dead, not alive; and they are unaware when they will be raised.
16:22  Your God is one God. So, those who are not believing in the Hereafter, their cores are in denial, and they are arrogant.
16:23  Assuredly that Allah knows what they are secreting, and what they are announcing. Surely, He doesn't love the arrogant.
16:24  And if it is said to them, “What has your Lord sent down?” They say, “The formers’ Legends.”
16:25  To carry their burdens completely on The Resurrection Day, and among the burdens of those whom they are straying (them), without a knowledge. Verily wicked is what they are bearing.
16:26  Already those before them were guiled, so Allah came to their buildings from the foundations, so the roof collapsed upon them from above them. And the torment came at them from where they do not feel.
16:27  Then, on The Resurrection Day, He will disgrace them, and say, “Where are my associates those who you were opposing within them?” Those who were given the knowledge said, “Surely the disgrace Today and the badness are upon the infidels.”
16:28  Those whom the angels decease (them) oppressing themselves, so they cast the surrender: “We were not working the bad.” Yes, surely Allah is Knowledgeable with what you were working on.”
16:29  So, enter Gohanam’s doors (Hell), immortals therein. So wicked is the arrogant’ dwell.
16:30  And it was said for those who showed piety, “What has your Lord sent down?” They said, “Goodness.” For those who excelled in this Dunya (world) an excellence, and The Hereafter Home is a goodness. And gracious is the pious’ home.
16:31  Eden paradises, which they will enter them, beneath which the rivers are running, they have therein whatever they are wishing. Thus, Allah recompenses the pious.
16:32  Those whom the angels decease them, Good. They (The angels) are saying, “Peace be upon you enter, The Paradise, with what you were working.”
16:33  Are they waiting except that the angels should come to them, or your Lord’s command should come? Thus, those before them were done. And Allah did not oppress them, but themselves they were oppressing.
16:34  So it was inflicting them, the badness of what they worked, and banded with them what they were ridiculing with it.
16:35  And those who associated said, “If Allah willed, we would not have worshiped without Him, of a thing neither of us, nor our parents, nor would we have forbidden without Him, of a thing.” Thus, those before them did. So is there upon the messengers except the obvious notification?
16:36  And already We missioned a messenger in every community: “That worship Allah and avoid the false god.” So, from them who Allah guided, and from them who the straying was truthed upon him. So, walk on the earth, so observe how it was the falsifiers consequence.
16:37  If you are eager upon their guidance, then Allah does not guide those whoever He strays. And none for them from supporters.
16:38  And they swore by Allah with their most effort oaths, “Allah is not arising whoever dies.” Yes, it is a promise upon Him truly, (to arise who dies) but most people are not knowing.
16:39  To demonstrate for them which they are differing within it, and let the disbelievers know that they were liars.
16:40  It is only our say for a thing when We wanted it, “Be,” so it is.
16:41  And Those who emigrated in Allah, after being oppressed, We will good settle on them in The Dunya (this world), an excellence; and the Hereafter wage is bigger, if they are knowing.
16:42  Those who are patient, and upon their Lord, they are relying.
16:43  And We did not send before you except men whom We revealed to them. So, ask the reminder’s people, if you were not knowing.
16:44  With the proofs and the Zaboors. And We sent down to you the Reminder, that you demonstrate to the people what was sent down to them, and perhaps they may be thinking.
16:45  So are those who are guiling the bad deeds, secured that Allah will collapse down the earth with them, or the torment comes to them from where they do not feel.
16:46  Or will he take them in their daily activity fluctuation? So, they will not cause its incapacitation.
16:47  Or He will take them upon fear? So, surely Your Lord is Kind, Merciful.
16:48  Have they not seen what Allah has created among a thing? It shades its shadows, about the right and the lefts, prostrating for Allah while they are degrading.
16:49  And for Allah prostrates whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth, among a moving creature, and the angels, and they are not arrogant.
16:50  They are fearing their Lord from above them, and they are doing whatever they are commanded. ۩
16:51  And Allah has said: “Do not take two Gods, Tow! He, just only, One God; so, be from me be terrifying.”
16:52  And for Him whatever is in the skies and the earth; and for Him the religion is constantly. So, are you showing piety, to others than Allah?
16:53  And whatever among grace with you is from Allah. Then if the harm touches you, so to Him you are groaning.
16:54  Then if He uncovers the harm about you, behold! a team among you with their Lord are associating.
16:55  To disbelieve with what We have given them. So, enjoy. So, you will know.
16:56  And they set up, for what they do not know, a share among what we had livelihood them. By Allah, you will be questioned about what you have been slandering.
16:57  And they set up for Allah the daughters, glorified is Him, and for themselves what they are desiring.
16:58  And when one of them is preaching with the female, his face stays blackish, and he is a suppressor (His rage).
16:59  He disappears from the kinfolk, from a bad of what he preached with it. Shall he withhold it in humiliation, or bury it secretly in the dust? Verily, bad was what they were judging.
16:60  For those who are not believing in the Hereafter, is the badness example, and for Allah is the Highest Example. And He is Al-Aziz (The Almighty), Al-Hakeem (The Wise).
16:61  And if Allah is taking the people with their oppression, He would not quit upon it a moving creature, but He postpones them until a named term. So, when their term comes, they will neither be delaying one hour, nor will they be advancing.
16:62  And they set for Allah what they are hating, and their tongues describe the lie, that for them is the excellency. Assuredly, that for them is the Fire, and that they will be over-neglected.
16:63  By Allah, We already sent (Messengers) to communities before you, so Satan prettified their works for them. So, he is their guardian Today, and for them a painful torment.
16:64  And We did not send down upon you the Book except to demonstrate for them what they are differing within it, and a guidance and a mercy for a kinfolk who believe.
16:65  And Allah sent down water from the sky, so with which He gives the earth life after its death. Surely, within that is a verse for a kinfolk who listen.
16:66  And surely there is an admonition lesson for you in the livestock: We water you from what is within their bellies, between excretion and blood, unmixed milk, palatable for the drinkers.
16:67  And from the date-palms fruitage and the grapevines, you are taking from it an intoxicant and a fine livelihood. Surely, within that is a verse for a kinfolk who reason.
16:68  And your Lord revealed to the bee: “That takes homes from the mountains, and from the trees, and from what they are trellising.”
16:69  Then eat from all the fruitage, so go within your Lord’s pathways, smoothly. Exit out from their bellies a varying color syrup, within it a healing for the people. Surely, within that is a verse for a kinfolk who think.
16:70  And Allah created you; then He will decease you. And from you who is reversed to the oldest age, so that he will no longer know a thing, after his knowledge. Surely Allah is Knowledgeable, Competent.
16:71  Allah has favored some of you over some others in livelihood. So, those who are favored would not hand over their livelihood to those whom their right hands are possessing, so that they would be equal in it. So, is it with Allah’s graces they are denying?
16:72  And Allah has set up for you among yourselves spouses; and set up for you from your spouses, sons and grandchildren; and had livelihood for you among the good things. So will they by the invalid they are believing, and by Allah’s grace disbelieving?
16:73  And they worshiped without Allah what does not own for them a livelihood from the skies, and the earth of a thing, and they are unable.
16:74  So do not cite the examples for Allah. Surely Allah knows, and you are not knowing.
16:75  Allah cites an example of an owned slave, who is unable upon a thing; and whom We had livelihood from Us a finest livelihood, so he spends from it secretly and publicly. Are they equal? All praise for Allah nay, but most of them are not knowing.
16:76  And Allah cited an example of two men: one of them dumb, is unable upon a thing, and he is a burden on his guardian; whichever way he directs him, he does not come with a goodness. Is he equal with him who commands, with justice, and is on a straight path?
16:77  And for Allah is the skies’ unseen and the earth. And the Hour’s command is not except, like the sight’s glance, or even nearer. Surely Allah is over everything competent.
16:78  And Allah exited you out from your mothers’ bellies, not knowing a thing; and He set up for you the hearing, and the sight, and the hearts; perhaps you may be thanking.
16:79  Have they not seen the birds, subservient in the sky’s atmosphere? None withholds them except Allah. Surely, within that is verses for a kinfolk who believe.
16:80  And Allah has set up for you from your homes a calmness and has set up for you from the livestock’s leathers homes, would be light on you on your travel day, and on your staying day; and among their wool, and fur, and hair, furnishings and enjoyment till a while.
16:81  And Allah has set up for you shade from what He has created and has set up for you from the mountains’ stashes, and has set up for you garments to protect you from the hotness, and garments to protect you from your violence. Thus, He completes His graces upon you, perhaps you may be submitting.
16:82  So, if they turned away, it was only upon you the obvious notification.
16:83  They recognize Allah’s graces, then they deny it, and most of them are the infidels.
16:84  And on a Day when We will mission a witness from every community, then those who disbelieved will not be permitted (excuse), nor they be admonished (to appease God).
16:85  And if those who oppressed saw the torment, so it will not be lightened about them, nor respited.
16:86  And if those who are associating saw their associates, they said, “Our Lord, these are our associates whom we were calling without You.” So, they threw back to them the saying, “You are liars.”
16:87  And they threw to Allah on that Day the submission, and strayed from them what they were slandering.
16:88  Those who disbelieved and hindered Allah's pathway, We increased them a torment over the torment, with what they were spoiling.
16:89  And on a Day when We will raise in every community a witness against them, among themselves, and brought with you as a witness against these. And We sent down upon you the Book, as a declaration for everything, and a guidance, and a mercy and preach (good tidings) for the Muslims.
16:90  Surely Allah commands with the justice, and the excellence conduct, and giving the possessors of consanguinity. And He prohibits obscenity, and the denial, and the transgressing. He exhorts you, perhaps you may be remembering.
16:91  And fulfill Allah's covenant if you covenant and do not break the oaths after emphasizing them. And you already have set up Allah upon you as sponsor, surely Allah knows what you are doing.
16:92  And do not be like her who unravels her yarn, after it was strong in renege. You are taking your oaths as deception between you, to be one community is more growing than another community. Surely Allah is trying you with it. And He will demonstrate for you, on The Resurrection Day, what you were within it differing.
16:93  And if Allah willed, He would set up you one community, but He strays whom He wills, and He guides whom He wills. And you will be questioned about what you were working on.
16:94  And do not take your oaths as deception between you, so a foot will slip after its firming, and taste the badness with what you avert from Allah’s pathway, and for you a great torment.
16:95  And do not purchase with Allah’s covenant for a little price. Surely what is with Allah is a goodness for you, if you are knowing.
16:96  What you have would be depleted, but what is with Allah remains. And We will recompense those who are patient, their wages with the best of what they were working.
16:97  Whoever worked righteous, whether male or female, while being a believer, We will give him a good life, and We will recompense them their wage with the best of what they were working.
16:98  So, if you read the Quran. So, seek incantation with Allah from the outcast Satan.
16:99  Surely, he has no Sultan over those who believed, and, on their Lord, they are relying.
16:100  Surely His Sultan is only upon those who ally him and those who by him (Allah) are associating.
16:101  And if We substituted a verse in place of a verse, and Allah is knower with what He sends down, they said, “You are only a slanderer.” Nay, but most of them are not knowing.
16:102  Say, “The holy Spirit has descended it down from your Lord, with the right, to stabilize those who believed, and a guidance and a preach (good tidings) for the Muslims.”
16:103  And We already have knowledge that they are saying, “Surely he teaches him only humankind.” The tongue of the one whom they atheist to, him is a foreigner and this is an obvious Arabic tongue.
16:104  Surely those who are not believing with Allah’s verses, Allah does not guide them, and for them is a painful torment.
16:105  Surely, they are only slandering the lie, those who are not believing with Allah’s verses. And those are the liars.
16:106  Whoever disbelieved with Allah after his believing, except who is forced, while his core was tranquilized by the faith. But, whoever his chest was enraptured by the infidelity, so upon them anger from Allah, and for them is a great torment.
16:107  That is because they have loved the Dunya (worldly) life more than the Hereafter, and surely Allah does not guide the infidel kinfolk.
16:108  Those are whom Allah has imprinted on, their cores and their hearings, and their sights. And those are the inattentive ones.
16:109  Assuredly that they are in The Hereafter, the losers.
16:110  Then surely your Lord, for those who emigrated after being infatuated, then efforted and be patient, surely your Lord thereafter is Forgiver, Merciful.
16:111  On a Day when every soul will come arguing about itself, and every soul will fulfill what it has worked for, and they are not being oppressed.
16:112  And Allah cited an example of a village that was secured and tranquil, its livelihood coming to it abundantly from every place. So, it disbelieved with Allah’s grace, so Allah made them taste the hunger’s apparel and the fear, with what they were making.
16:113  And already a messenger among them had come to them, but they falsified him, so the torment took them while they were oppressors.
16:114  So, eat among what Allah had livelihood for you Halal and good things, and be thankful for Allah’s graces, if you are to Him worshiping.
16:115  Surely, He has only forbidden upon you the dead, and the blood, and the swine flesh, and what was dedicated with it to rather than Allah. So, whoever is compelled neither a transgressor nor exceeder, So, surely Allah is Forgiver, Merciful.
16:116  And do not say for what your tongues describe, the lie, “This is Halal, and this is forbidden,” to slander the lies upon Allah. Surely those who are slandering upon Allah the lie, are not gaining.
16:117  A little enjoyment, and for them a painful torment.
16:118  And upon those who are Jews, We have forbidden what We storified upon you before. And We did not oppress them, but themselves they were oppressing.
16:119  Then your Lord for those who worked the bad with ignorance, then they repented after that and repaired, surely your Lord thereafter is Forgiver, Merciful.
16:120  Surely Abraham was an Ummah (Goodness Leader), devoutly obedient to Allah, a monotheist, and was not among the polytheists.
16:121  Thankful of His graces. He elected him and guided him to a straight path.
16:122  And We gave him in the Dunya (world) an excellence, and he is in the Hereafter be among the righteous.
16:123  Then We revealed to you: “That follows Abraham’s creed, Monotheist. He was not among the polytheists.”
16:124  Surely the Sabbath was set up only upon those who differed within it. And Your Lord will judge between them on The Resurrection Day in what they within it were differing.
16:125  Call to your Lord’s pathway with wisdom and the excellent exhortation and argue with them by which it is best. Surely Your Lord is knower with whoever astray about His pathway, and He is knower with the guided ones.
16:126  And if you punish, so punish with the like of what you were punished with. And if you are patient, it is good for the patient ones.
16:127  And be patient. And your patience is only with Allah. And do not grieve upon them, and not be in distress with what they are guiling.
16:128  Surely Allah is with those who show piety and those who are benefactors.
