26:1  TA SIN MIM
26:2  26:2.These are the verses of the Book that clarifies (illuminates)
26:3  It may be that you are tormenting your soul that they will not be believers
26:4  If We will, We can send down upon them from heaven a sign which would bend their necks in humility
26:5  But there comes not to them a fresh Reminder from the Beneficent that they did not turn away from
26:6  They have indeed rejected the message, but soon enough will come to them the truth of that at which they mocked
26:7  Have they not looked to the earth, how We caused to grow therein of every noble kind
26:8  Verily, in that is indeed a sign; but most of them are not believers
26:9  Lo! Your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:10  And when your Lord called Moses, saying, "Go to the iniquitous people
26:11  To the people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear (Allah or doing evil)?"
26:12  Said he, "My Lord! Verily, I fear that they will call me liar
26:13  "And my breast will be straitened, and my tongue is not fluent; so send then unto Aaron (or send them Aaron)
26:14  "For they have a crime against me. And I fear that they may kill me."
26:15  Said He, "Not so; but go, both, with Our signs; verily, We are with you listening
26:16  "And go to Pharaoh and say, ´Verily, we bear a message from the Lord of the World
26:17  "(saying) Send you with us the children of Israel.´"
26:18  And he said, "Did we not cherish you as a child amongst us? And did you not dwell amongst us for many years of your life
26:19  "And you did do a deed which you know you did do (he slew an Egyptian), and you are of the ungrateful!"
26:20  Moses said, "I did commit this, and I was of those who erred
26:21  "And I fled from you when I feared you. But my Lord granted me better judgment, and made me one of His messengers
26:22  "And this is the favour you have reproached me with, that you have enslaved the children of Israel!"
26:23  Said Pharaoh, "Who is the Lord of the Worlds? "
26:24  Said he, "The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between the two, if you want certainty."
26:25  Said he (Pharaoh) to those about him, "Do you not hear?"
26:26  Moses said, "(He is) your Lord and the Lord of your fathers from the beginning."
26:27  Said he (Pharaoh), "Verily, the messenger who is sent to you is surely mad!"
26:28  Moses said, "(He is) The Lord of the East and of the West, and of all that is between the two, if you did but understand."
26:29  Said he (Pharaoh), "If you do take a god besides me I will surely place you among the prisoners."
26:30  Moses said, "What, if I come to you with something obvious (to the senses)?"
26:31  Said he, "Bring it, if you are of those who tell the truth."
26:32  And he threw down his rod, and, behold, it was an obvious serpent
26:33  And he plucked out his hand, and, behold, it was white to the spectators
26:34  He (Pharaoh) said to the chiefs around him, "Verily, this is a knowing (expert) magician (sorcerer, wizard)
26:35  "He desires to turn you out of your land. What is it then you counsel (advise, suggest)"
26:36  They said, "Put him off a while, him and his brother, and send into the citie
26:37  "To collect and bring to you every knowing (expert) magician."
26:38  And the magicians assembled at the appointed time on a well-known day (a festival day)
26:39  And it was said to the people, "Are you assembling?"
26:40  (They said), "Aye, so that we may follow the magicians if they win."
26:41  And when the sorcerers came they said unto Pharaoh, "Will we have a sure reward if we win?"
26:42  He said, "Yes; and, verily, you shall then be of those who are brought nigh to me (or to my throne in affection and rank)."
26:43  And Moses said to them, "Throw down what you have to throw."
26:44  So they threw down their ropes and their rods and said, "By Pharaoh´s might, verily, it is we who shall be the winners."
26:45  And Moses threw down his rod, and, lo, it swallowed up what they had falsely devised
26:46  And the magicians threw themselves down, in obeisance
26:47  Saying, "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds
26:48  "The Lord of Moses and Aaron."
26:49  Said Pharaoh, "Do you believe in Him ere I give you permission? Surely, he is your leader (in a conspiracy) who has taught you sorcery. But soon you shall know. I will surely cut off your hands and your feet from opposite sides, and I will crucify y
26:50  They said, "No matter! Verily, unto our Lord do we (or "will we" or "in any case") return
26:51  "Verily, we ardently hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins, for we are the foremost of believers!"
26:52  And We inspired Moses, saying, "Journey by night with my servants; verily, you are pursued."
26:53  And Pharaoh sent into the cities summoners
26:54  (Who said) "Verily, these are a small company
26:55  "And, verily, they are offenders against us
26:56  "But we are a multitude and wary
26:57  (") So we (or We) expelled them out of gardens and springs
26:58  (") And treasures, and noble positions.("
26:59  Thus it was, but We made the children of Israel inheritors of these things
26:60  And they pursued them at dawn
26:61  And when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Moses said, "Verily, we are overtaken!"
26:62  Said he, "Not so; verily, my Lord is with me. He will guide me."
26:63  And We inspired Moses, saying, "Strike the sea with your rod." And it was cleft asunder, and each part was like a mighty mountain
26:64  And then We brought the others thither
26:65  And We saved Moses and those with him, every one
26:66  We drowned the others
26:67  Lo! Herein is indeed a sign: but most of them are not believers
26:68  And, verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:69  And recite unto them the story of Abraham
26:70  When he said to his father and his people, "What do you worship?"
26:71  They said, "We worship idols, and we are devoted to them."
26:72  He said, "Can they hear you when you call
26:73  "Or benefit you, or harm you?"
26:74  They said, "No; but we found our fathers doing thus."
26:75  He said, "Have you considered that which you worship (or serve)
26:76  "You  and your forefathers
26:77  "Verily, they are foes unto me, save only the Lord of the Worlds
26:78  "Who created me and does guide me
26:79  "And who feeds me food and waters me
26:80  "And when I am sick He heals me
26:81  "He who causes me to die, and then gives me life again
26:82  "And who, I ardently hope, will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment
26:83  "My Lord, grant me wisdom (or judgment), and let me join the righteous
26:84  "And give me a good report amongst the later generations
26:85  "And place me among the heirs of the Garden of Delight
26:86  "And forgive my father. Verily, he is of those who err
26:87  "And disgrace me not on the Day when they are raised
26:88  "The Day when wealth shall profit not, nor sons
26:89  "But only he who comes to Allah with a whole (sound) heart
26:90  "And the Garden will be brought near to the righteous
26:91  "And Hell shall be brought forth plainly to those who go astray
26:92  "And it will be said unto them, ´Where is all that you used to worshi
26:93  "Beside Allah? Can they help you, or help themselves?´
26:94  "Then they shall be hurled therein, they and the seducers
26:95  "And the hosts of Iblis all together
26:96  "They shall say, while they quarrel therein
26:97  "´By Allah! In truth, we were in manifest error
26:98  "´When we made you equal to the Lord of the Worlds
26:99  "´It was only the guilty who led us astray
26:100  "´But now we have no intercessor
26:101  "´And no loving friend
26:102  "´Oh, that we had another turn on earth, that we might be of the believers.´"
26:103  Verily, in this is indeed a sign, yet most of them are not believers
26:104  And, verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:105  The people of Noah denied the messengers
26:106  When their brother Noah said to them, "Will you not fear (Allah and avoid evil)
26:107  "Verily, I am a faithful messenger to you
26:108  "So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me
26:109  "I ask you for it no wages; my wage is only the concern of the Lord of the Worlds
26:110  "So fear Allah and obey me."
26:111  They said, "Shall we believe in you, when the meanest follow you?"
26:112  He said, "What knowledge have I of what they were doing
26:113  "Their account is only with my Lord, if you but understood
26:114  "And I am not here to drive away the believers
26:115  "I am only a plain Warner."
26:116  They said, "Verily, if you desist not, O Noah! you shall surely be of those who are stoned!"
26:117  Said he, "My Lord! Verily, my own people reject me
26:118  "Judge you between us openly, and deliver me and those of the believers who are with me."
26:119  So We saved him and those with him in the laden ark
26:120  Then We drowned the rest
26:121  Verily, in this indeed is a sign, yet most of them are not believers
26:122  And, verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:123  And (the people of) A´ad denied the messengers
26:124  When their brother Hud said to them, "Will you not fear
26:125  "Verily, I am to you a faithful messenger
26:126  "So keep your duty to Allah and obey me
26:127  "I ask of you no fee for it; my wage is only the concern of the Lord of the Worlds
26:128  "Do you build on every height a monument of vain delight
26:129  "And build you fine strong buildings that per chance (or possibly) you may be immortal
26:130  "And when you seize by force, assault you like tyrants
26:131  "Rather fear Allah and obey me
26:132  And keep your duty to Him who has bestowed on you freely all that you know
26:133  And has aided you with cattle and son
26:134  And gardens and springs
26:135  Verily, I fear for you the retribution of an awful day!"
26:136  They said, "It is the same to us if you admonish or are not of those who admonish
26:137  "This is nothing but the fable of men of old
26:138  "For we are not the ones to be doomed (or tormented)."
26:139  And they denied him; therefore, We destroyed them. Verily, in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:140  And, verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:141  (The tribe of) Thamud denied the messengers
26:142  When their brother Salih said to them, "Will you not fear
26:143  "Verily, I am to you a faithful messenger
26:144  "So keep your duty to Allah and obey me
26:145  "I ask not of you any wages; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds
26:146  "Shall you be left here secure in that which is before u
26:147  "In gardens and springs
26:148  "And tilled fields and heavily sheathed palm
26:149  "Though you hew out dwellings in the mountain skillfully
26:150  "But keep your duty to Allah and obey me
26:151  "And obey not the bidding of the extravagant (profligate, wasters)
26:152  "Who spread corruption in the earth and mend not their ways."
26:153  They said, "You art only of the bewitched
26:154  "You art but mortal like us; so bring us a sign, if you are truthful."
26:155  He said, "Behold this she-camel (a test of faith). She has the right to drink, and you have a right to drink, each on an appointed day
26:156  "Touch her not with evil, lest there seize you the retribution of an awful day."
26:157  But they hamstrung her, and on the morrow they repented
26:158  So the retribution seized them; verily, in this is a sign; but most of them are not believers
26:159  And verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:160  The people of Lot denied the messengers
26:161  When their brother Lot said to them, "Will you not fear (Allah or evil)
26:162  "Verily, I am to you a faithful messenger
26:163  "So keep your duty to Allah and obey me
26:164  "I ask you not for it any wages; my wage is only the concern of the Lord of the Worlds
26:165  "Do you approach the males of all creatures of the world
26:166  "And leave the mates your Lord has created for you? Nay, but you are people who transgress."
26:167  They said, "Surely, if you do not desist, O Lot! you shall be of those who are expelled!"
26:168  Said he, "I am, in truth, of those who hate your conduct
26:169  "My Lord! Save me and my people from what they do."
26:170  So We saved him and his people, every one
26:171  Except an old woman (Lot´s wife) amongst those who lingered behind
26:172  Then We destroyed the others
26:173  We rained down upon them a shower (of brimstone); and dreadful was the rain for those who had been warned
26:174  Verily, in this is a sign; yet most of them are not believers
26:175  And, verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:176  The Dwellers of the Grove (Midianites) denied the messengers
26:177  Shu´eyb said unto them, "Will you not fear
26:178  "Verily, I am to you a faithful messenger
26:179  "So do your duty to Allah and obey me
26:180  "I ask not of you for it any wages; my wage is only the concern of the Lord of the Worlds
26:181  "Give full measure, and be not of those who diminish (give less than due)
26:182  "And weigh with a true balance
26:183  "And wrong (or cheat) not mankind of their goods; and waste not the land, despoiling it
26:184  "And keep your duty unto Him who created you and the generations of the past!"
26:185  Said they, "You art only of the bewitched
26:186  "And you are only a mortal like ourselves; and, verily, we think that you are surely of the liars
26:187  "So make portions of the heaven fall down upon us, if you are of the truthful!"
26:188  Said he, "My Lord knows best what you do!"
26:189  But they rejected him, so the torment of the day of gloom (Ashes from a volcanic eruption?) seized them. Lo! It was the retribution of an awful day
26:190  Verily, in this is a sign; but most of them are not believers
26:191  26:191.Verily, your Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:192  And, verily, it is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds
26:193  Which the Faithful Spirit of Truth (Gabriel) has brought dow
26:194  Upon your heart, that you may be one of the Warners
26:195  In plain Arabic language
26:196  And, verily, it is also in the scriptures of the past
26:197  26:197.Is it not a sign for them that the learned men of the children of Israel recognize it
26:198  Had We sent it down to any one of any other nation but the Arabs
26:199  And he had read it unto them, they would not have believed therein
26:200  26:200.Thus have We made for it a way into the heart of the guilty
26:201  But they will not believe therein until they see the painful doom
26:202  And it shall come to them suddenly when they perceive not
26:203  They will say, "Shall we be reprieved?"
26:204  What! Do they wish to hasten on Our penalty
26:205  What think you? If We let them enjoy life for years
26:206  And then there comes to them that which they are promised
26:207  That which they had to enjoy will avail them not
26:208  But We destroy not any population but it had its Warner
26:209  For reminder, for We are never unjust
26:210  No devils (or evil ones) brought down this revelation (the Quran)
26:211  It is not fit work for them; nor is it in their power to do so
26:212  Verily, they are banished from listening
26:213  Therefore, call not upon gods other than Allah, lest you be of the doomed
26:214  But warn your people who are near of kin
26:215  And lower your wing (in kindness and protection as the hen does over its chicks) to those of the believers who follow you
26:216  But if they rebel against you, say, "Verily, I am innocent of what you do,"
26:217  And put your trust (rely) upon the Mighty, the Merciful
26:218  Who sees you when you do stand up (to pray)
26:219  And your postures (or movements) among those who prostrate themselves (in obeisance)
26:220  Verily, He, only He, is the Hearer, the Knower
26:221  Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend
26:222  They descend upon every wicked liar
26:223  And impart what they have heard; but most of them are liars
26:224  As for poets, those follow them who are astray
26:225  Have you not seen how they wander confused in every valley (or by way)
26:226  And that they say that which they do not do
26:227  Save those who believe and do good works, and remember Allah much, and defend themselves after they are wronged. Those who do wrong will come to know with what a turn they shall be turned
