The believers have succeeded:
those who are humbly focused in their prayer;
who turn away from meaningless activities;
who guard their modesty and sexual purity,
except from their spouses or their slaves, in which case they are free from blame –
but whoever desires sexual gratification
beyond that are transgressors –
honour trusts placed in them and their contract;
and regularly perform their prayers.
Such people are the true
they will inherit Paradise, living in it forever
created humanity from an extract of clay.
, We placed him as a drop of semen in the stable environment of the womb
The drop of semen turned to a blood-like clot; and, from the blood-like clot, We made the fleshy lump into bones and covered them with flesh; then We produce from it another created being. Blessed is Allah, the best Creator.
After all that, you will die,
and on Judgement Day you will be resurrected
We created seven orbits of the Heavens above you; and We never neglected Our
We send rain from the sky in exact
measure, and We hold it in the Earth; and We are equally
capable of taking it away.
, We produce gardens of date palms and grape vines. There is plenty of fruit for you to eat.
We produced a
tree that grows on the side of
Mount Sinai, it produces olive
oil, a seasoning for people to eat.
The livestock offer you a lesson; We give you to drink from what is in their bellies, not to mention
the many other benefits in them, and you eat their meat,
and they carry you across the land
. And you’re transported by the ships
We sent Nuh to his people, he preached: “My people, worship Allah; you have no other god beside Him. Won’t you be mindful of Him
The leaders of disbelievers of his community said, “He is only a mortal like yourselves, who wants dominance over you. If Allah so wished, He would have sent angels. Never have we heard the like of
this from our forefathers.
He’s just a man who’s mad, so bear with him a while till he recovers
said, “My Lord, help me, they’ve denied me.
We inspired him: “Build a ship under Our supervision and according to Our instructions; then, when Our command comes, and the geysers begin to
flood, then take aboard two of every kind of creature
and your family, except those who’ve already been condemned. And do not speak to me about the evildoers. They are as good as
Then, once you and your followers are onboard the ship, say: ‘Praise be to Allah, Who has rescued us from the wrongdoers,’
and say: ‘My Lord, settle me in a blessed place, for You are the best provider of a home.’”
In this are signs. We have always put people
to the test
We raised another generation after them,
and sent a messenger from themselves, who said
: “Worship Allah; you have no other god beside Him. Will you not be mindful of Him
The leaders of disbelievers from his community who denied meeting Allah
in the Hereafter, and those We lavished with luxuries
in this worldly life, said
, “He’s only a human like yourselves; he eats what you eat and drinks what you drink.
If you were to obey a human like yourselves, you would be losers.
“Does he promise that, when you die and turn to dust and bones, you will be brought out of your graves
What you are promised is utter nonsense!
This worldly life of ours is it! We will live, die, and we will not be resurrected.
He is only a man who has made up lies about Allah, so
we won’t believe him.”
said, “My Lord, help me because they’ve denied me.”
said, “They will regret, soon.”
The Blast took them by surprise
; and We turned them into dust. So away with the evildoers!
We raised other generations after them.
No community can bring forward or delay its fixed lifespan
We continued sending Our messengers, one after another. Each time their messenger came to a community, they denied him. So, We made one community succeed another, and We made of them tales to be told
. So away with people who do not believe!
After that We sent Musa and his brother, Harun, with Our signs and a clear proof
to Pharaoh and his court, but they were arrogant and too proud.
They said, “Should we believe two men like ourselves, whose people are our slaves?”
So they denied them and were destroyed.
We gave Musa the Book so they may be guided.
We made the son of Maryam and his mother a sign; We gave them refuge on a hilltop, a peaceful place with a natural
Messengers, eat of what is pure wholesome and do good deeds; I know well what you do.
This community of yours is a single community, and I am your Lord, so be mindful of Me
split up into sects, each sect pleased with itself.
So leave them wallowing
in their confusion for a while.
Do they reckon We granted them wealth and children because
We are in a rush to do whatever is good for them? On the contrary, they have no sense of what is coming
, those who fear their Lord;
believe in the signs of their Lord;
don’t associate partners
with their Lord;
give charity from what they have been given, while their hearts tremble at the thought
that they will be returning to their Lord;
they rush to do whatever is good, they are the high fliers
We don’t task anyone beyond their capacity, and We keep
a Book with Us that speaks the truth; so
they shall not be wronged.
However, there’s confusion in their minds about this; and the wrongdoers
have even worse deeds than this, which they continue to do
until We seize their well-off for punishment; then they will cry out.
“Don’t cry today,” they will be told
, “You will find no help against Us.
When My verses were recited, you turned on your heels and walked away
arrogantly talking nonsense late into the night.”
Haven’t they reflected on what is said in the Quran
? Or has something come to them that never came to their forefathers?
Or is it that they don’t recognise their messenger, and so they reject him?
Or do they say that he’s possessed? On the contrary, he has come to them with the truth, but most of them hate it
the truth was to follow their whims, then the Heavens and the Earth and whatever exists in them would have fallen into ruin. We brought them a reminder, but they turned away from their reminder.
Or did you ask them to pay you something? The payment of your Lord is better by far; and He is the best Provider.
At the same time as
you are calling them to the straight path,
those who deny the Hereafter have turned away from the path
If We were kind to them and removed all
hardship from them, they would still wander about disobediently.
We punished them once before
, and they didn’t surrender to their Lord, nor showed humility
until We opened the gate of punishment on them, and they fell into despair.
He gave you hearing, sight and mind. How little did you thank Him!
He scattered you all over the Earth, and eventually you will be gathered before Him.
He grants life and death, and His is the cycle of night and day. Don’t you understand
On the contrary, the Makkans
say the same as their
They said: “When we are dead and turned to dust and bones, will we be resurrected?
We and our forefathers were promised this before. These are mere tales of the past.”
: “To Whom does the Earth and whoever lives
on it belong, if you have knowledge?”
They will say, “To Allah!” Say: “Why then don’t you pay attention?”
Say: “Who is the Lord of the Seven Heavens and the Lord of the Mighty Throne?”
they will say, “Allah!” Say: “Why aren’t you mindful of Him
Say: “In Whose hand lies the control over everything, He protects, but against Him there is no protection, if you have knowledge?”
They will say, “Allah!” Say: “So why are you bewitched?”
On the other hand, We brought them the truth, but they deny it
Allah has not taken a son, nor is there any other god with Him. If it had been so, each god would have gone off with what it had created, and some of them would be superior to others. Glory to Allah, Who is far removed
from what they ascribe to Him
The Knower of all that is seen and unseen, Sublimely exalted above whatever they associate with Him
Say: “My Lord, if You must show me what they’ve been promised
then, My Lord, don’t include me among the wrongdoers.”
We are quite capable of showing you what We promised them.
Repel evil with good. We know well what they ascribe to Us
And say: “My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the murmurings of devils;
and I seek Your refuge from harm they may cause me.”
Only when death comes to one of them will he say, “My Lord, let me return to my life on Earth
so that I may act righteously in whatever I previously
omitted.” Never! What he is saying are empty
words; and before them lies a vast barrier, uncrossable
till the day they are resurrected
When the mighty
Trumpet is blown, that Day there will be no kinship left
between them, nor will they ask about each other.
Anyone whose scales weigh heavy, will be successful;
but anyone whose scales are light will be the loser, staying in Hell forever.
The Fire will scorch their faces, leaving them grinning like skulls
“Were My verses not recited to you,” they will be asked
, “and you rejected them.”
They will say, “Our Lord, misfortune overwhelmed us, and so
we went astray.
Our Lord, get us out of here; if we return to acting sinfully
, we shall only
be wronging ourselves
will say, “May you be driven ever deeper
into the Fire
. Don’t speak to Me.
There was once
a group of My servants who used to say, ‘Our Lord, we believe; forgive us and be kind to us, for You are the most Kind.’
However, you took them as a laughing stock, your laughing at them made you forget My remembrance.
This day I shall reward them for their patience. They are the victors.”
will ask, “How long did you live on Earth?”
They will say, “We spent a day or so. Ask those who keep count.”
will say, “You spent but a short while, if only you knew.
Did you reckon We created you without a purpose and you wouldn’t be returned to Us?
Allah is the exalted, the True King! There is no god beside Him, Lord of the Honoured Throne.
Anyone who worships another god for which he has no proof, His Lord will bring him to account. The disbelievers shall never succeed.
say: “My Lord, forgive and be kind, for You are the Most Kind.
