Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah The Poets(ash-Shu`ara`)
26:1 T?. S?n. M?m.
26:2 These are verses of the Book (that makes the truth) clear.
26:3 Perhaps you will kill yourself with grief, for that they do not become Believers.
26:4 If We please, We should send down upon them a sign from the heaven to which they would bend their necks in humility.
26:5 And never comes there to them a new reminder from the Beneficent (Allah), but they turn away from it.
26:6 So they have indeed rejected (it), therefore the news of that which they used to mock shall soon come to them.
26:7 7. Do they not look at the earth - how many of every noble kind We have caused to grow in it?
26:8 Verily in that there is a sign, but most of them do not believe.
26:9 And verily, your Lord certainly is He the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:10 10. And when your Lord called out to Moses (saying): �Go to the unjust people,
26:11 The people of pharaoh; will they not fear (Allah)?�
26:12 Said (Moses): �O my Lord! Surely I fear that they will reject me?�
26:13 And my breast straitens, and my tongue is not eloquent, therefore sent for Aaron (to help me).
26:14 And they have a crime against me, therefore I fear that they may slay me.
26:15 Said (Allah): 'By no means, so go you both with Our signs, surely We are with you, hearing'.
26:16 So go to Pharaoh and say: 'Verily we (two) are the Messengers of the Lord of the worlds!
26:17 Send you with us the Children of Israel'.
26:18 Said (Pharaoh): 'Did we not cherish you as a child among us, and you tarried among us for (many) years of your life?
26:19 And you did that your deed which you did, and you are one of the ungrateful.
26:20 Said (Moses): 'I did it then, when I was (as you think) in error'.
26:21 So I fled from you when I feared you, then my Lord granted me wisdom and made me of the messenger.
26:22 And is it a favour with which you reproach me that you have enslaved the Children of Israel?
26:23 Pharaoh said: 'And what is the Lord of the woilds?'
26:24 He said: '(He is) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, if you have faith'.
26:25 Pharaoh said to those around him: 'Do you not hear (what he says)?'
26:26 (Moses) said: 'Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of old'.
26:31 (Pharaoh) said: 'Bring it then, if you are of the truthful ones'.
26:32 So he cast down his rod, and behold, it was a clear serpent.
26:33 And he drew out his hand, then behold, it was radiant white to the beholders!
26:34 (Pharaoh) said to the chiefs around him: �Verily this is a skilled sorcerer,
26:35 Who intends to drive you out of your land with his sorcery, what do you command?�
26:36 They said: 'Give him (Moses) and his brother respite, and send heralds into the cities to collect',
26:37 (That) they bring to you all skilful sorcerers.
26:38 So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a day well-known.
26:39 And it was said to the people: 'Will you assemble?'
26:40 Haply we may follow the sorcerers if they are victors.
26:41 Then, when the sorcerers came, they said to Pharaoh: 'Shall we have a reward if we should be the victors?'
26:42 (Pharaoh) said: 'Yes, and surely you will then be among the near-stationed'.
26:43 Moses said to them: 'Cast what you are going to Cast'.
26:44 So they cast down their ropes and their rods, and said: 'By Pharaoh's dignity we shall certainly be the victors'.
26:45 Then Moses cast down his rod, when, behold, it swallowed up that which they falsely displayed.
26:46 Then the sorcerers were flung prostrate.
26:47 They said: 'We believe in the Lord of the worlds'!
26:48 The Lord of Moses and Aaron'.
26:49 (Pharaoh) said: 'You have believed in him before I give you leave. Verily,he is the chief of you who taught you the sorcery; so, soon shall you know! Certainly I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and certainly I will crucify you all'.
26:50 They said: 'No matter! Verily we unto our Lord shall Return'.
26:51 Verily we hope that our Lord will forgive us our faults, since we are the first of the believers'.
26:52 And We revealed unto Moses (saying): �Go you forth with My servants by night, for verily you will be pursued�.
26:53 Then Pharaoh sent heralds into the cites.
26:54 Verily these (Israelites) are only a small group,
26:55 And verily they have enraged us.
26:56 And verily we are a host on our guard.
26:57 So We expelled them from the gardens and the springs,
26:58 And treasures and a goodly dwelling,
26:59 Thus (did We drown them) and We made the Children of Israel the inheritors to them.
26:60 Then they (Pharaoh's host) pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 So when the two parties saw each other, the companions of Moses said: 'Indeed we are overtaken'!
26:62 (Moses) said: ' By no means! Verily my Lord is with me, soon will He gtiide me (to safety)'.
26:63 Then We revealed to Moses: 'Strike the sea with your staff', then it clove asunder and each part became like a huge mountain.
26:64 Then We made the other party approach thither.
26:65 And We saved Moses and those with him all together.
26:66 Then We drownedthe others.
26:67 Verily in this is a sign, yet most of them do not believe.
26:68 And verily your Lord, certainly He is 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 ever devoted unto them�.
26:72 Said (Abraham): 'Do they hear you when you call (them)?'
26:73 Or do they profit you, or harm?
26:74 They said: 'Nay, but we found our fathers so doing'.
26:75 He said: 'Have you then considered what you have been worshipping?
26:76 You and your fathers before you?'
26:77 Surely they are enemies to me, save the Lord of the Worlds,
26:78 Who created me, and Himself guides me,
26:79 And Himself feeds me and provides me to drink;
26:80 And whenever I am sick, then He heals me,
26:81 And Who caused me to die, then gives me life,
26:82 And Who, I hope, will forgive me my mistakes on the Day of Judgment.
26:83 My Lord! Bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous!
26:84 And ordain for me a goodly mention among posterity;
26:85 And make me of the heirs of the garden of bliss;
26:86 And forgive my father, verily, he is of those astray.
26:87 And abase me not on the Day when (men) will be raised up;
26:88 The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail,
26:89 Except for him who comes to Allah with a pure heart.
26:90 And the Paradise shall be brought near for the pious.
26:91 And the Hell shall appear plainly to the erring ones,
26:92 And it shall be said to them: 'Where are those that you used to worship,
26:93 Besides Allah? Do they help you or help themselves?'
26:94 So they shall be thrown into it, - they and the erring ones,
26:95 And the hosts of 'Iblis, all together.
26:96 And they will say, when they are mutually quarrelling therein:
26:97 By Allah! We were certainly in manifest error,
26:98 When we made you equal to the Lord of the worlds.
26:99 And none but the guilty ones led us astray.
26:100 Now, then we have no intercessors,
26:101 Nor a single intimate friend,
26:102 Now if we only had a chance of return, we would be of the believers.
26:103 Verily in this is a sign but most of them do not believe.
26:104 And verily your Lord is He the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:109 And do not ask you any recompense for it, my recompense is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:110 Then be in awe of Allah and obey me.
26:111 They said: 'Shall we believe in you while the meanest follow you?'
26:112 He said: 'No knowledge have I of what they were doing;
26:113 Their reckoning is only on my Lord, if you could (but) perceive;
26:114 And I am not going to drive away the believers;
26:115 I am naught but a plain warner.
26:116 They said: 'If you desist not, O Noah! you shall surely be one of the stoned (to death)'.
26:117 Said (Noah): 'My Lord! Verily my people have belied me,
26:118 Judge You, then, between me and them, and deliver me and the believers that are with me'.
26:119 So We delivered him, and those with him, in the laden Ark.
26:120 Then We drowned the rest afterwards.
26:121 Verily in that is a sign, but most of them do not believe.
26:122 And verily your Lord, He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:123 The �?d (people) belied the messengers.
26:124 When their brother Hud said to them: �Will you not fear (Allah)?
26:125 Verily I am unto you a trustworthy messenger.
26:126 Then be in awe of Allah and obey me.
26:127 And I do not ask you any recompense for it, my recompense is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:128 Do you build a landmark on every height for vain delight?
26:129 And you get strong buildings in the hope of living therein for ever.
26:130 When you assault, you assault like tyrants!
26:131 Then be in awe of Allah and obey me.
26:132 And be in awe of Him Who has succoured you with what you know.
26:133 He has succoured you with cattle and Children,
26:134 And gardens and springs.
26:135 Verily I fear for you the chastisement of a Great Day.
26:136 They said: 'It is the same to us whether you admonish or be not of the admonishers.
26:137 This (preaching) is naught but a custom of the ancients.
26:138 And we are not going to be punished.
26:139 So they belied him, then We destroyed them; verily in this is a sign; but most of them do not believe.
26:140 And verily your Lord, certainly He is the Mighty,the Merciful.
26:151 And do not obey the bidding of the extravagant,
26:152 Those who make mischief in the earth, and amend not.
26:153 They said: 'You are only of the bewitched ones',
26:154 You are no more than a mortal, like us, so bring you a sign if you are one of the truthful.
26:155 He said: 'Here is a she-camel; she shall have her portion of water (one day), and you have your portion of water on an appointed day',
26:156 And do not touch her with evil, least the punishment of a grievous day should overtake you.
26:157 Then they hamstrung her, and became regretful.
26:158 So the punishment overtook them; verily in this there is sign, but most of them do not believe.
26:159 And verily your Lord, He is certainly the Mighty,the Merciful.
26:165 Of all the creatures in the world, do you come to the males?
26:166 And leave what your Lord has created for you of your wives? Nay, you are a people transgressing (the limits)
26:167 They said: 'If you desist not, O L?t! you shall surely be of those who are expelled'.
26:168 He said: 'I do detest your doings'.
26:169 My Lord! deliver me and my family from (the vice of) what they do.
26:170 So, We did deliver him and his family all.
26:171 Except an old woman who remained behind.
26:172 Then We destroyed the others.
26:173 We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone),and evil is the rain of them that were warned.
26:174 Verily in this is a sign, but most of them do not believe.
26:175 And verily your Lord, certainly He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:176 The dwellers of the Forest belied the messengers.
26:177 When Shu�ayb said to them: �Will you not fear (Allah)?
26:178 Verily I am unto you a trustworthy messenger.
26:179 Then be in awe of Allah and obey me.
26:180 And I do not ask you any recompense for it, myrecompense is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:181 Fill up the measure, and be not of the cheaters,
26:182 And weigh (things) with a right balance,
26:183 And do not defraud people in their (due) goods, and do not act corruptly in the earth, making mischief.
26:184 And fear Him Who created you and the former generations.
26:185 They said: 'Verily you are only of those bewitched'.
26:186 And you are naught but a mortal like us; and we think that you are of the liars.
26:187 Therefore cause a piece of the sky to fall on us, if you are one of the truthful.
26:188 He (Shu'ayb) said: 'My Lord knows best what you do'.
26:189 But they belied him, then there seized them the chastisement of the Day of Shadow. Verily it was a chastisement of a grievous day.
26:190 Verily there is a sign in this, but most of them do not believe.
26:191 And verily your Lord, certainly He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
26:192 And verily this (Qur�?n) is from the Lord of the Worlds.
26:193 The Faithful Spirit has descended with it.
26:194 Upon your heart that you may be of the warners.
26:195 In the perspicuous Arabic language.
26:196 And verily it is (foretold) in the (heavenly) Books of the ancients.
26:197 Is it not a sign to them that the learned of the Children of Israel know it (as true)?
26:198 And if We had sent it down to any of the non-Arabs,
26:199 And he had recited it to them, they would not have believed in it.
26:200 Thus We caused it passing into the hearts of the sinners,
26:201 (But) they will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment.
26:202 And it shall come upon them all of a sudden, while they are not aware.
26:203 Then they will say: 'Shall we be respited?'
26:204 Do they then ask for Our Chastisement to be hastened on?
26:205 Have you then considered if We let them enjoy themselves for years,
26:206 Then there comes to them that (punishment) which they were promised?
26:207 That which they were made to enjoy shall not avail them.
26:208 And We did not destroy any town but it had its warners,
26:209 To remind (them) and never are We unjust.
26:210 And the Satans have not bring it down.
26:211 And it behooves them not, nor they can do (it).
26:212 Verily they are banished from hearing it.
26:213 So call you not upon another god with Allah, lest you will be one of the chastised (ones).
26:218 He Who sees you when you stand up (in prayer),
26:219 And your movements among those who prostrate themselves.
26:220 Verily He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.
26:224 And the poets, follow them the erring ones,
26:225 Do you not see that they wander about be wildered in every valley?
26:226 And that they say that which they do not do.
26:227 Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and remember Allah much, and defend themselves after being wronged; and soon those who act unjustly shall know to what final place of turning they shall turn back.
