23:1  The believers have truly prospered.
23:2  Those are humbled in their prayers.
23:3  And those who turn away from idle talk.
23:4  And those who practice the paying of sanctifying dues.
23:5  And those who guard their chastities
23:6  except with their marital conjoints or with that their right hands possess, for they truly are not susceptible to blame.
23:7  But those who seek what is beyond that [out of lust], they truly are the transgressors.
23:8  And those who watch closely over their trusts and their covenants.
23:9  And those who keep their prayers.
23:10  These are those who will be the inheritors.
23:11  Those who will inherit the garden of Firdaus to abide therein forever.
23:12  And indeed We created the human being out of a substance from clay.
23:13  Then We caused him to be a drop of liquid in a resting place firmly secured.
23:14  Then We created the drop of liquid into a clot of blood, then We created the clot of blood into a piece of flesh, then We created the piece of flesh into bones, then We covered the bones with skin, then We raised him up into a different creature. So blessed is Allah the best of the creators
23:15  Then after that you certainly are going to die.
23:16  Then on the day of resurrection, you will be resurrected.
23:17  And indeed We have created above you seven causeways and We are never oblivious about the creation.
23:18  And We sent down water from the heaven in due measure and then We gave it a tranquil place to stay in the earth and We are surely able to make it disappear.
23:19  And with it We raised for you gardens of date trees and of grapes wherein for you are lots of fruits and from which you eat.
23:20  And a tree that grows forth from the Mount Sinai, it produces the oil and a condiment for the eaters.
23:21  And truly in the cattle there is for you a lucid lesson. We make you drink from what comes from their bellies and in them for you are numerous benefits and from them you eat.
23:22  And on them and on the vessels you are carried.
23:23  And indeed We sent Noah to his people and he said, “O my people! Serve Allah. There is no deity for you other than He. Will you not then guard your own souls?”
23:24  So the chieftains who disbelieved from his people said, “This is no other than a human like you. He intends to place himself above you. Had Allah willed, He would have sent down angels. We never heard about this in our forefathers.”
23:25  He is not but a man who is possessed [by daemon] so bear with him for a little while.
23:26  He said, “O my Lord! Grant me victory for that they belied me.”
23:27  So We inspired him saying, “Build an ark under Our eyes and under Our divine instruction and when Our commandment comes and the spring of water gushes forth, make enter therein from every kind two pairs and all are going to perish except the ones among them on whom Our word of sentence [to survive] has been passed and do not address Me on behalf of those who have wronged their own souls. They certainly are going to drown.”
23:28  Once you and those with you settle in the ark then say, “The praise is for Allah the one who saved us from the people who wrong their own souls.”
23:29  And say, “O my Lord! Let me land at a blessed place of landing and you are the best of those who give a place of landing.”
23:30  Truly in this surely are the signs and We were only trying them.
23:31  Then after them We raised another generation.
23:32  And We sent among them a messenger from them [and he said] that, “Worship Allah, you have no other deity beside Him. Will you then not revere [Him]?”
23:33  And the chieftains from his people who disbelieved and belied the meeting of the hereafter and whom We had made affluent in the life of this world said, “He is no more than a human like you. He eats of that which you eat and he drinks of that which you drink.
23:34  And if you obey a human like yourselves, truly then you are ones who are going to be in loss.
23:35  Does he promise you that when you had died and you became dust and bones, you indeed are going to be brought forth?
23:36  Far and far is that what you are promised.
23:37  It is but our life of this world. We die and we live and we are not going to be resurrected.
23:38  He is but a man who has contrived a lie against Allah and we are not going to believe him.”
23:39  He said, “O my Lord! Help me because they belied me.”
23:40  He said, “In a little while, they will certainly become those who are stricken with regret.”
23:41  So the awful shriek seized them by the truth and We reduced them into a stubble. Far away [from Allah’s mercy] are the people who wrong their own souls.
23:42  Then after them We raised other generations.
23:43  No nation can advance their appointed term nor can they be late for it.
23:44  Then We sent down messengers one after another. Every time came to a nation their messenger, they belied him. So We made them follow one another and We made them into news [for others]. Far removed [from Allah’s mercy] are people who do not believe.
23:45  Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and with a manifest authority
23:46  unto Pharaoh and his chieftains but they held themselves as great ones and they were a people who held themselves high [in the earth]
23:47  and they said, “Should we believe in two humans like us when their people are but slaves for us.”
23:48  And they belied the two of them so they became of those who were caused to perish.
23:49  And We indeed gave the book to Moses so that they may find guidance.
23:50  And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign and We brought the two of them for shelter to an elevated land which is a good resting place and is furnished with springs of water.
23:51  “O you the messengers! Eat from the things that are clean and work righteous deeds. Truly I am All-knowing about all that you do.”
23:52  And truly this is your nation, one nation and I am your Lord so revere Me.
23:53  But they tore their affair among them into pieces. Each party happy with the piece that they have.
23:54  So abandon them in their deep darkness for a while.
23:55  Do they think then that We bestow upon them from wealth and children is only because
23:56  We are eager to serve them with all kinds of good things? Nay! They are not aware [of Our true intention].
23:57  Truly those who are concerned for themselves due to the deference of their Lord.
23:58  And those who believe through the signs of their Lord.
23:59  And those who do not ascribe partners to their Lord.
23:60  And those who give what they give while their hearts are in tremor [knowing] that they are going to return to their Lord.
23:61  These are those who race with one another in good things and it is they who will take the lead in attaining that.
23:62  And We do not charge a soul with more than its capacity and with Us is a book that speaks in the truth and they will not be wronged [in the least].
23:63  Nay their hearts are in deep darkness about this [the book] and besides this they have other practices which they continue to practice.
23:64  Until when We seized those who were affluent among them with the punishment, Lo! They are imploring.
23:65  [It will be said to them], “Do not implore today. Truly you will not be given a help against Us.”
23:66  Indeed My signs used to be related to you but you used to turn back on your heels.
23:67  Holding yourself arrogant against it [the book] you continue to spend your nights in idle talk thereby abandoning [the book].
23:68  Do they not truly appreciate the word or is it that something has come to them that never came to their forefathers?
23:69  Or is it that they have not recognized their messenger so they are in denial of him?
23:70  Or do they say that he is possessed? Nay he has come to them with the truth but most of them are averse to the truth.
23:71  Had the truth followed their vain desires, most certainly the heavens and the earth and whosoever is in them would have fallen in disorder. Nay We have brought unto them their remembrance but they have turned away [with arrogance] from their remembrance.
23:72  Or do you ask them for any remuneration? Surely the remuneration of your Lord is best and He is the best of those who give sustenance.
23:73  And Lo! You surely are calling them to a most upright way.
23:74  And truly those who do not believe in the hereafter are going to depart from the way.
23:75  Even if We had mercy on them and We had removed from them that which afflicted them, they would still have obstinately persisted in their transgression wandering about blindly.
23:76  And We did indeed seize them with the punishment but they did not humble themselves for their Lord nor did they plead with Him.
23:77  Until when We open upon them a door of a mighty punishment, behold! They are therein in absolute despair.
23:78  He it is who has raised for you the hearing, the sight and the perception of the heart. How little is the gratitude that you offer.
23:79  And it is He who has caused you to proliferate in the earth and it is He unto Whom you shall be gathered.
23:80  And it is He who gives life and causes death and for Him is the alternation of the night and of the day. Will you not then understand?
23:81  Rather they said the like of that which was said by people before them.
23:82  They said, “What! If we died and we were dust and bones, are we truly going to be raised?
23:83  Indeed we were promised this and so were our fathers aforetime but this is nothing but the tales of the people of the past.”
23:84  Say, “For whom is the earth and whosoever is in it if you do know?”
23:85  They will say, “For Allah.” Say, “Will you then not remember?”
23:86  Say, “Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the magnificent throne?”
23:87  They will say, “For Allah.” Say, “Will you not then revere [Him]?”
23:88  Say, “Who is it in whose hand rests the inner dominion of everything and who can give refuge [against anyone else] but none can give refuge [to anyone else] against Him if you do know?”
23:89  They will say, “For Allah.” Say, “How then could you be spellbound?”
23:90  Nay! We have brought unto them the truth but truly they are indeed liars.
23:91  Allah has not taken any son [for Himself] nor is there any deity with Him for surely then each deity would appropriate unto himself that which he had created and some of them certainly will over power others. Glorified be Allah from all that they attribute to Him.
23:92  Knower of that which is hidden and of that which is witnessed. Far exalted is He above all that they ascribe as partners to Him.
23:93  Say, “O my Lord, if you do show me that which they are promised [in my life in this world]
23:94  Then my Lord, do not put me with the people who wrong their own souls”
23:95  And We most certainly are able to show you [while you are alive in this world] that which We promise them.
23:96  Repel the evil with that which is most excellent. We truly know that which they describe with their tongue.
23:97  And say, “O my Lord! I seek refuge with You from the promptings of the devils
23:98  And I seek refuge with You, O my Lord, lest they be present with me.”
23:99  Until such a time when the death will come to one of them, then he will say, “O my Lord! Send me back [in the earth].”
23:100  Perhaps that I may do righteous deeds within the time which is given to me as a delay. Nay! That is just a word that he is saying it [he will not do it even if he is sent back] and behind them there is a boundary until the day that they will be resurrected.
23:101  And when the trumpet is blown then there will be no ties of family between them on that day nor will they be asking about one another [out of concern].
23:102  Whosoever’s balance [of good deeds] is heavy, it is they who will be the prosperers.
23:103  And whosoever’s balance [of good deeds] is light, it is they who have put their own souls in loss and will abide forever in the hellfire.
23:104  The fire will scorch their faces and they will look grimly therein.
23:105  Were not my signs related to you but you used to belie them.
23:106  They will say, “O our Lord! Our ill luck had overtaken us and we were a people who had gone astray.
23:107  O our Lord! Take us out of it [the hell fire] and if we return back to our former ways, then it will be us who will have done wrong to our own souls.
23:108  He will say, “Be there in abject and vile and do not speak to Me.”
23:109  Indeed there used to be a group of my slaves who used to say, “O our Lord, we believe so forgive us and have mercy on us, for You truly are the best of those who are merciful.”
23:110  But you took them for a jest so much so that they made you forget My remembrance and you used to laugh at them.
23:111  Truly I have rewarded them for what they were patient, that today they are the successful ones.
23:112  He will say, “How many numbers of years did you stay in the earth?”
23:113  They will say, “We stayed a day or part of a day, ask those who know how to count.”
23:114  He will say, “You stayed only a little only if you did know.
23:115  Did you then think that We only created you for sport and that you will not be brought back to Us?”
23:116  Therefore exalted is Allah, the King, the Truth. There is no deity save He. Lord of the gracious throne.
23:117  And whoever invokes any other deity along with Allah, he has no proof thereby and then his reckoning is only with his Lord. Truly the disbelievers will not prosper.
23:118  And say, “O my Lord! Forgive and bestow mercy, for You truly are the best of those who are merciful.”
