26:1  ?a. Sin. Mim
26:2  These are the signs of the clear Book
26:3  Perhaps thou dost torment thyself that they are not believers
26:4  If We will, We will send down a sign from Heaven and their heads would remain bowed before it in humility
26:5  Yet no new reminder comes to them from the Compassionate, but that they turn away from it
26:6  Indeed, they have denied it, but there shall come to them the tidings of that which they used to mock
26:7  Have they not considered the earth, how much of every noble kind We have caused to grow therein
26:8  Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:9  And truly thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful
26:10  And [remember] when thy Lord called out to Moses, “Go to the wrongdoing people
26:11  the people of Pharaoh. Will they not be reverent?
26:12  He said, “My Lord, truly I fear that they will deny me
26:13  And my breast will be straitened, and my tongue will not be unfettered; so send unto Aaron
26:14  And they have a crime against me; thus I fear that they will slay me.
26:15  He said, “Nay! Go forth, then, with Our signs. We shall be with you, listening
26:16  So go to Pharaoh and say, ‘Verily we are sent by the Lord of the worlds
26:17  that you may send with us the Children of Israel.’
26:18  He said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and did you not stay among us for years of your life
26:19  And you did your deed which you did, and you are one of the ingrates.
26:20  He said, “I did it then, when I was one of those who are astray
26:21  So I fled from you when I was afraid of you. Then my Lord granted me judgment and placed me among the messengers
26:22  And that blessing you recount to me is that you have enslaved the Children of Israel.
26:23  Pharaoh said, “And what is the Lord of the worlds?
26:24  He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is between them—would that you were certain.
26:25  He said to those around him, “Do you not hear?
26:26  He said, “Your Lord, and the Lord of your fathers of old.
26:27  He said, “Truly your messenger who has been sent to you is possessed!
26:28  He said, “The Lord of the East and the West and whatsoever is between them, if you understand.
26:29  He said, “Truly if you take a god apart from me, I shall place you among the imprisoned!
26:30  He said, “And if I bring you something manifest?
26:31  “Bring it, then, if you are among the truthful.
26:32  So Moses cast his staff, and behold, it was a serpent manifest
26:33  Then he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to the beholders
26:34  He said to the notables around him, “Truly this is a knowing sorcerer
26:35  who desires to expel you from your land with his sorcery. What would you command?
26:36  They said, “Leave him and his brother a while, and send marshalers to the citie
26:37  to bring to you every knowing sorcerer.
26:38  So the sorcerers were brought together for the tryst of an appointed day
26:39  And it was said unto the people, “Will you gather
26:40  that haply we may follow the sorcerers if they are the victors?
26:41  Then, when the sorcerers came, they said to Pharaoh, “Shall we truly have a reward if we are the victors?
26:42  He said, “Yes, and you shall then be among those brought nigh.
26:43  Moses said to them, “Cast what you would cast!
26:44  So they cast their ropes and staffs and said, “By the might of Pharaoh, we shall surely be the victors!
26:45  Then Moses cast his staff, and behold, it devours what they make falsely
26:46  Then were the sorcerers cast down, prostrating
26:47  They said, “We believe in the Lord of the worlds
26:48  the Lord of Moses and Aaron.
26:49  He said, “Do you believe in Him before I give you leave? He is indeed your chief, who has taught you sorcery. You will surely know! I shall surely cut off your hands and your feet from opposite sides, and I shall surely crucify you all!
26:50  They said, “It is no harm. Truly unto our Lord do we turn
26:51  Truly we hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins for our having been the first of the believers.
26:52  Then We revealed unto Moses, “Set forth with My servants by night; you shall indeed be pursued.
26:53  Then Pharaoh sent marshalers to the cities [saying]
26:54  “These indeed are a small band
26:55  and indeed they have enraged us
26:56  and we are a host at the ready!
26:57  So We expelled them from gardens and springs
26:58  and treasures and a noble station
26:59  So it was, and We made the Children of Israel to inherit them
26:60  Then they pursued them at sunrise
26:61  And when the two hosts saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “We are overtaken!
26:62  He said, “Nay! Truly my Lord is with me; He will guide me.
26:63  Then We revealed unto Moses, “Strike the sea with thy staff!” and it parted, and each part was as a great mountain
26:64  And thither We brought the others nigh
26:65  And We delivered Moses and those with him all together
26:66  Then We drowned the others
26:67  Truly in that is a sign, though most of them are not believers
26:68  And truly thy Lord 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 are you worshipping?
26:71  They said, “We worship idols, and we remain ever devoted to them.
26:72  He said, “Do they hear you when you call
26:73  Or do they benefit or harm you?
26:74  They said, “Nay, but we found our fathers doing so.
26:75  He said, “Have you considered what you worship
26:76  you and your ancestors
26:77  For they are all enemies unto me, save the Lord of the worlds
26:78  Who created me, and guides me
26:79  and Who feeds me and gives me drink
26:80  and Who, when I am ill, heals me
26:81  and Who causes me to die, then gives me life
26:82  and Who I hope will forgive me my sins on the Day of Judgment
26:83  My Lord! Grant me judgment, and bind me to the righteous
26:84  And make for me faithful renown among later generations
26:85  And place me among the heirs of the Garden of bliss
26:86  And forgive my father—he is one of those who are astray
26:87  And disgrace me not on the Day they are resurrected
26:88  the Day when neither wealth nor children avail
26:89  save for him who comes to God with a sound heart.
26:90  And the Garden will be brought nigh unto the reverent
26:91  and Hellfire will become apparent to the errant
26:92  And it will be said unto them, “Where is that which you worshippe
26:93  apart from God? Are they helping you or helping themselves?
26:94  Then they shall be toppled into it, they and the errant
26:95  and the hosts of Iblis all together
26:96  They will say, as they dispute with one another therein
26:97  “By God, indeed we were in manifest error
26:98  when we made you equal with the Lord of the worlds
26:99  And none caused us to go astray but the guilty
26:100  So now we have no intercessors
26:101  nor any loyal friend
26:102  If we had another turn, we would be among the believers.
26:103  Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:104  And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:105  The people of Noah denied the messengers
26:106  when their brother Noah said unto them, “Will you not be reverent
26:107  Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
26:108  So reverence God and obey me
26:109  And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds
26:110  So reverence God and obey me.
26:111  They said, “Shall we believe you, when the lowliest follow you?
26:112  He said, “What knowledge have I of what they used to do
26:113  Their reckoning is only by my Lord, were you but aware
26:114  And I shall not drive away the believers
26:115  I am but a clear warner.
26:116  They said, “Truly if you cease not, O Noah, you shall indeed be among the stoned.
26:117  He said, “My Lord, verily my people have denied me
26:118  So decide between me and them, and deliver me and the believers who are with me!
26:119  So We delivered him and those who were with him in the full-laden Ark
26:120  Then afterwards We drowned those who remained
26:121  Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:122  And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:123  ?Ad denied the messengers
26:124  when their brother Hud said unto them, “Will you not be reverent
26:125  Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
26:126  So reverence God and obey me
26:127  And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds
26:128  Do you frivolously build on every high place a sign
26:129  And do you occupy castles, that haply you may ever abide
26:130  And when you strike, do you strike as tyrants
26:131  So reverence God and obey me
26:132  And reverence Him who has succored you with what you know
26:133  succored you with cattle and children
26:134  and gardens and springs
26:135  Truly I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous day!
26:136  They said, “It is the same to us whether you exhort us or whether you are not among those who exhort
26:137  This is naught but the ethos of those of old
26:138  and we shall not be punished.
26:139  So they denied him, and We destroyed them. Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:140  And truly thy Lord is, indeed, the Mighty, the Merciful
26:141  The Thamud denied the messengers
26:142  when their brother ?ali? said unto them, “Will you not be reverent
26:143  Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
26:144  So reverence God and obey me
26:145  And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds
26:146  Will you be left among that which is here, secure
26:147  amid gardens and springs
26:148  sown fields, date palms with ripe stalks
26:149  And you skillfully hew dwellings in the mountains
26:150  So reverence God and obey me
26:151  And obey not the commands of the prodigal
26:152  who work corruption upon the earth, and do not set matters aright.
26:153  They said, “You are but one of the bewitched
26:154  You are naught but a human being like us; so bring a sign, if you are among the truthful.
26:155  He said, “This is a she-camel; she shall have drink and you shall drink on an appointed day
26:156  And touch her not with harm, lest you be taken by the punishment of a tremendous day.
26:157  But they hamstrung her, and then became remorseful
26:158  So the punishment seized them. Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:159  And truly thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful
26:160  The people of Lot denied the messengers
26:161  when their brother Lot said unto them, “Will you not be reverent
26:162  Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
26:163  so reverence God and obey me
26:164  And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds
26:165  Among all creatures do you come unto males
26:166  leaving your spouses your Lord created for you? Nay, but you are a transgressing people.
26:167  They said, “If you cease not, O Lot, you will be among those who are expelled.
26:168  He said, “Truly I am of those who detest what you do
26:169  My Lord! Deliver me and my family from what they do.
26:170  So We delivered him and his family all together
26:171  save for an old woman among those who lagged behind
26:172  Then We destroyed the others
26:173  And We rained a rain upon them. Evil was the rain of the warned
26:174  Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:175  And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:176  The inhabitants of the thicket denied the messengers
26:177  when Shu?ayb said unto them, “Will you not be reverent
26:178  Truly I am a trustworthy messenger unto you
26:179  So reverence God and obey me
26:180  And I ask not of you any reward for it; my reward lies only with the Lord of the worlds
26:181  Give full measure, and be not among those who fall short
26:182  Weigh with the right balance
26:183  and diminish not people’s goods, nor behave wickedly upon the earth, working corruption
26:184  And reverence Him Who created you and the generations of old.
26:185  They said, “You are but one of the bewitched
26:186  You are naught but a human being like us, and indeed we deem you to be among the liars
26:187  so make fragments from the sky fall upon us, if you are among the truthful.
26:188  He said, “My Lord knows best what you do.
26:189  So they denied him, and the punishment of the day of gloom seized them. Truly it was the punishment of a tremendous day
26:190  Truly in that is a sign, but most of them are not believers
26:191  And truly thy Lord is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful
26:192  And truly it is a revelation of the Lord of the worlds
26:193  brought down by the Trustworthy Spirit
26:194  upon thine heart—that thou mayest be among the warners
26:195  in a clear, Arabic tongue
26:196  It is indeed in the scriptures of those of old
26:197  Is it not a sign for them that the learned of the Children of Israel know it
26:198  And had We sent it down upon some non-Arab
26:199  and he recited it unto them, they would not have believed in it
26:200  Thus do We place it into the hearts of the guilty
26:201  they will not believe in it till they see the painful punishment
26:202  so it will come upon them suddenly, while they are unaware
26:203  Then they will say, “Will we be granted respite?
26:204  Do they seek to hasten Our Punishment
26:205  Consider: if We grant them enjoyment for years
26:206  and there comes upon them that which they were promised
26:207  of what avail to them will be that which they were made to enjoy
26:208  And never did We destroy a town save that it had warners
26:209  as a reminder; and We did no wrong
26:210  And the satans did not descend with it
26:211  nor is it fitting for them, nor are they able
26:212  Indeed, they are debarred from hearing [it]
26:213  So call not upon another god along with God, lest thou be among the punished
26:214  And warn thy tribe, thy nearest kin
26:215  and lower thy wing to the believers who follow thee
26:216  And should they disobey thee, say, “Truly I am quit of that which you do.
26:217  And trust in the Mighty, the Merciful
26:218  Who sees thee when thou standest [to pray]
26:219  and thy movement amid those who prostrate
26:220  Truly He is the Hearing, the Knowing
26:221  Shall I inform thee of those upon whom the satans descend
26:222  They descend upon every sinful liar
26:223  eavesdropping, and most of them are liars
26:224  And as for the poets, the errant follow them
26:225  Hast thou not considered that they wander in every valley
26:226  and that they say what they do not do
26:227  Not so those who believe and perform righteous deeds, and remember God much, and help one another after having been wronged. And those who do wrong shall know to what homecoming they will return
