21:1  People´s reckoning is coming close and they are turning away carelessly.
21:2  Whenever a new reminder comes to them from their Lord, they listen to it whilst playing.
21:3  Their hearts are distracted and the wrongdoers meet secretly saying: is this not a human like you? Are you going to give in to the spell when you can see?
21:4  He said: my Lord knows what is spoken in the heaven and on earth and He listens and knows.
21:5  But they said: confused dreams, rather he invented it, rather he is a poet, so let him bring us a sign like the messengers sent before.
21:6  No town which We destroyed before them believed, so are they going to believe?
21:7  And before you We only sent men to whom We gave revelation, so ask those who keep the reminder if you don´t know.
21:8  And We did not give them bodies which do not consume food nor were they immortal.
21:9  Then We fulfilled the promise and rescued whom We please and destroyed the wasteful.
21:10  We have revealed to you a book containing your reminder, so will you not understand?
21:11  How often did We crush a town who did wrong and brought into existence other people after them?
21:12  Then when they felt our adversity, they ran away from it.
21:13  Don´t run away but return to the luxury you were in and your homes so you can be questioned!
21:14  They said: woe to us, we were wrongdoers.
21:15  And this call of theirs did not stop until We cut them down completely.
21:16  And We did not create the heaven and earth and what is between as a pastime.
21:17  Had We wanted to find amusement, We could have found that with Ourselves if We were to do so.
21:18  But We pour the truth over falsehood so it repels it and it vanishes, and you will suffer for what you make out.
21:19  And to Him belongs what is in the heavens and on earth, and those near him are not too arrogant to serve Him and do not tire of it.
21:20  They glorify night and day without slowing down.
21:21  Or do they adopt gods from the earth who resurrect the dead?
21:22  If there were gods other than Allah in them (the heavens and the earth), they would have been corrupted, so glorified is Allah, the Lord of the throne, above what they make out.
21:23  He is not questioned about what He does, and they are questioned.
21:24  Or do they adopt gods besides Him? Say: bring your proof! This is the reminder for those who are with me and was the reminder for those before me, but most of them don´t know the truth and turn away.
21:25  And whenever We sent a messenger before you We revealed to him that there is no god but I, so serve Me.
21:26  And they say: the Merciful has adopted a son; glorified is He, but they are honoured servants.
21:27  They do not precede Him in speech and carry out His command.
21:28  He knows what lies before them and behind them and they do not intercede except for whom it is accepted and they are anxious out of fear of Him.
21:29  And if any of them says: I am a god besides Allah, We will punish him with hell, this is how We punish the wrongdoers.
21:30  Do those who reject (the truth) not see that the heavens and the earth were a continuous canvas, then We separated them and made from water every living thing, do they then not believe?
21:31  And We placed stabilisers on earth to support it with and cut paths through them so that you are guided.
21:32  And We placed the sky as a protected ceiling whilst they turn away from Our signs.
21:33  And He is who created the night and the day and the sun and the moon, each travels in an orbit.
21:34  And We did not give eternity to any human before you, so when you die, will they live forever?
21:35  Every soul will taste death, and We test them with bad and good as a trial and they return to Us.
21:36  And when those who reject (the truth) see you, they only take you as a joke: is this the one who mentions your gods? And they reject the remembrance of the Merciful.
21:37  Man was created impatient; I will show you My signs, so do not be in a hurry.
21:38  And they say: when will this promise happen if you are truthful?
21:39  If those who reject (the truth) knew the time when they cannot keep the fire off their faces nor off their backs and they will not be helped.
21:40  But it will reach them suddenly and startle them, so they cannot avert it nor will they be given time.
21:41  And messengers before you were made fun of, and those who laughed at them were met with what they made fun of.
21:42  Say: who guards you night and day against the Merciful? But they turn away from the remembrance of their Lord.
21:43  Or do they have gods who protect them against Us? They cannot help themselves nor are they assisted by Us.
21:44  But We gave enjoyment to these and their fathers until they grew old. Do they not see that we reduce the earth from its ends, so will they be the winners?
21:45  Say: I only warn you with the revelation, and the deaf do not hear the call when they are warned.
21:46  And when a hint of the punishment of your Lord touches them, they say, woe to us, we were wrongdoers.
21:47  And We set down the scales of justice on the day of resurrection so that no soul will be wronged the least, and if it is the weight of a mustard seed We will bring it out, and We are sufficient in counting.
21:48  And We gave Musa (Moses) and Harun (Aaron) the distinction (between right and wrong) and a light and reminder for those who beware (of Allah).
21:49  Those who fear their Lord in secret and are anxious about the hour.
21:50  And this is a blessed reminder which We have revealed, so do you dislike it?
21:51  And We gave Ibrahim (Abraham) his good sense before, and We knew all about him.
21:52  When he said to his father and his people: what are these images you are devoted to?
21:53  They said: we found our fathers serving them.
21:54  He said: you and your fathers were in clear error.
21:55  They said: did you bring us the truth or are you messing about?
21:56  He said: but your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the One who originated you, and I am a witness to that.
21:57  And by Allah, I will plot against your idols after you have turned your backs.
21:58  Then he cut them into pieces except for their chief so that they would return to him.
21:59  They said: who did this to our gods, for he is a wrongdoer.
21:60  They said: we heard a youth mention them, he is called Ibrahim (Abraham).
21:61  They said: then bring him before the people so that they are witnesses.
21:62  They said: did you do this to our gods, oh Ibrahim (Abraham)?
21:63  He said: but this chief of theirs did it, so ask them if they speak.
21:64  Then they turned back to themselves and said: you yourselves are the wrongdoers.
21:65  Then they shook their heads; you know that these don´t speak.
21:66  He said: do you then serve besides Allah what does not benefit you the least nor help you?
21:67  Worthless is what you serve besides Allah, do you not then understand?
21:68  They said: burn him and help your gods if you want to act.
21:69  We said: oh fire, be coolness and peace for Ibrahim (Abraham).
21:70  And they wanted to plot against him, but we made them the losers.
21:71  And We rescued him and Lut (Lot) to the land which We have blessed for all the world.
21:72  And We gave him Ishaq (Isaac) and Ya´qub (Jacob) in addition and made each of the righteous.
21:73  And We made them into leaders who guide by Our command and revealed to them to do good and to keep up prayer and give Zakat, and they served Us.
21:74  And Lut (Lot) We gave the ability to judge and knowledge and rescued him from the town which committed obscenities, for they were a bad and sinful people.
21:75  And We admitted him into Our mercy, for he is of the righteous.
21:76  And Nuh (Noah), when he called Us before and We responded to him and rescued him and his family from the tremendous distress.
21:77  And We helped him against the people who denied Our signs, for they were a bad people, so We downed them altogether.
21:78  And Dawud (David) and Sulayman (Solomon), when they judged about the harvest, when the sheep of the people strayed into it, and We witnessed their judgement.
21:79  And We let Sulayman (Solomon) understand it, and each of them We gave the ability to judge and knowledge, and We made the mountains and the birds subservient to glorify with Dawud (David), and this is what We did.
21:80  And We taught him the manufacture of armour for you to protect you against your harm, so will you be grateful?
21:81  And for Sulayman (Solomon) We made the strong wind travel by his command to the land the surroundings of which We have blessed, and We knew about everything.
21:82  And of the devils were those who dived for him and did other work, and We guarded them.
21:83  And Ayyub (Job), when he called his Lord: harm has befallen me and You are the most merciful of all.
21:84  So We responded to him and removed all harm from him and gave him his family and the like of it in addition as a mercy from Us and a reminder to those who serve.
21:85  And Isma´il (Ishmael) and Idris (Enoch) and Dhu-l-Kifl (Ezekiel), each were of the patient.
21:86  And We admitted them into Our mercy, for they are of the righteous.
21:87  And the one in the fish (Jonah), when he went angrily and thought that We had no control over him, then he called in the dark that there is no god but You, glorified are You, I was of the wrongdoers.
21:88  So We responded to him and rescued him from the grief, and this is how we rescue the believers.
21:89  And Zakariya (Zacharias), when he called his Lord: my Lord, do not leave me on my own, and you are the best of inheritors.
21:90  So We responded to him and gave him Yahya (John) and healed his wife for him, for they strived for good deeds and called Us in hope and in awe and were humble before Us.
21:91  And the one who guarded her chastity, so We blew into her of Our spirit and made her and her son a sign for all the world.
21:92  This is your community, a single community, and I am your Lord, so serve Me.
21:93  And they divided their affairs amongst them; each will return to Us.
21:94  Then whoever does good work and is a believer, his effort will not be rejected and We will write it down.
21:95  And it is forbidden for a town which We destroyed that they should come back.
21:96  Until Ya´juj and Ma´juj (Gog and Magog) are let loose and appear from everywhere.
21:97  And the true promise has come close, then the eyes of those who reject (the truth) will be glazed over: woe to us, we were careless about this, but we were wrongdoers.
21:98  You and what you serve besides Allah are the fuel of hell, you will be led to it.
21:99  If these were gods, they would not be led to it, and they will all remain in it.
21:100  There will be sighing for them in it, yet they will not hear in it.
21:101  Those whom We have given good before will be far removed from it.
21:102  They will not hear its hissing and will remain in what their souls long for.
21:103  The great terror will not worry them and the angels will welcome them: this is the day you were promised.
21:104  On the day We roll up the sky like a scroll for writing. As We began the first creation We will bring it back, a promise upon Us, We will do it.
21:105  And We previously wrote in the Psalms after the reminder that Our righteous servants will inherit the earth.
21:106  In that is a declaration for people who serve.
21:107  And We only sent you as a mercy for all the world.
21:108  Say: it has been revealed to me that your god is a single god, so will you submit?
21:109  Then if they turn away, say: I told you anyway, and I have no idea whether what you have been promised is close or far off.
21:110  He knows what is said openly and knows what you hide.
21:111  And I have no idea whether it may be a trial for you and a provision for a while.
21:112  He said: Lord, judge with the truth! And our Lord is the Merciful, who is to be implored against what you make out.
