and the Quran, the Book of wisdom
that you (Muhammad) are a Messenge
and that you follow the right path
This is a revelation sent down from the Majestic and All-merciful
so that you may warn a people who are unaware because their fathers were not warned
(I swear) that most of them are doomed to be punished. They have no faith
We have enchained their necks up to their chins. Thus, they cannot bend their heads (to find their way)
We have set-up a barrier in front of and behind them and have made them blind. Thus, they cannot see
Whether you warn them or not, they will not believe
You should only warn those who follow the Quran and have fear of the Beneficent God without seeing Him. Give them the glad news of their receiving forgiveness and an honorable reward (from God)
It is We who bring the dead to life and records the deeds of human beings and their consequences (of continual effects). We keep everything recorded in an illustrious Book
Tell them the story of the people of the town to whom Messengers came
We sent them two Messengers whom they rejected. We supported them by sending a third one who told the people, "We are the Messengers (of God) who have been sent to you"
The people said, "You are mere mortals like us and the Beneficent God has sent nothing. You are only liars."
They said, "Our Lord knows that We are Messenger
who have been sent to you. Our only duty is to preach clearly to you"
The people said, "We have ill omens about you. If you will not desist, we shall stone you and make you suffer a painful torment"
The Messengers said, "This ill omen lies within yourselves. Will you then take heed? In fact, you are a transgressing people."
A man came running from the farthest part of the city saying, "My people, follow the Messengers
Follow those who do not ask you for any reward and who are rightly guided
"Why should I not worship God who has created me? To him you will all return
Should I worship other gods besides Him? If the Beneficent God was to afflict me with hardship, the intercession of the idols can be of no benefit to me nor could it rescue me from hardship
(Had I worshipped things besides God, I would have been in manifest error)
Messengers, listen to me. I believe in your Lord."
(Having been murdered by the disbelievers) he was told to enter paradis
(wherein he said), "Would that people knew how my Lord has granted me forgiveness and honor"
We did not send an army against his people from the heaven after his death nor did We need to send one
It was only a single blast which made them extinct
Woe to human beings! Whenever a Messenger came to them, they mocked him
Have they not seen how many generations, living before them, had We destroyed and they cannot ever come back to them
They will all be brought into Our presence together
Evidence (of the truth) for them is how We revived the dead eart
and produced therein grains from which they eat and established therein gardens of palms trees and vineyards and have made streams flow therei
so that they may consume the fruits and whatever their hands prepare. Will they not then be grateful
All glory belongs to the One Who has created pairs out of what grow from the earth, out of their soul and out of that which they do not know
Of the signs for them is how We separated the day from the night and thus they remained in darkness
how the sun moves in its orbit and this is the decree of the Majestic and All-knowing God
how We ordained the moon to pass through certain phases until it seems eventually to be like a bent twig
how the sun is not supposed to catch-up with the moon, nor is the night to precede the day. All of them are to float in a certain orbit
how We carried them and their offspring inside the laden Ar
and created for them similar things to ride
Had We wanted, We could have drowned them and nothing would have been able to help or rescue the
except Our mercy which could enable them to enjoy themselves for an appointed time
Whenever they are told to guard themselves against sin and the forth coming torment so that perhaps they could receive merc
and whenever a revelation out of their Lord's revelations comes to them, they ignore it
When they are told to spend for the cause of God out of what He has provided for them for their sustenance, the disbelievers say to the believers, "Should we feed those whom God has decided to feed? You are in plain error."
The unbelievers say, "When will the Day of Judgment come if what you say is at all true?"
They will not have to wait long. When the Day of Judgment comes, it will only take a single blast of sound to strike them while they are quarrelling with one another
Then they will not be able to make a will or return to their families
When the trumpet is sounded, they will be driven out of their grave into the presence of their Lord
They will say, "Woe to us! Who has raised us up from our graves? This is what the Beneficent God has promised. The Messengers have also spoke the truth"
Only after a single blast of sound, they will all be brought into Our presence
No soul will be in the least bit wronged on that Day and no one will receive any recompense other than what he deserves for his deeds
The dwellers of Paradise on that day will enjoy themselves
They and their spouses will recline on couches in the shade therein
They will have fruits and whatever they desire
"Peace be with you," will be a greeting for them from the Merciful Lord
(The Lord will command), "Criminals, stand away from the others on this day."
Children of Adam, did We not command you not to worship satan. He was your sworn enemy
Did We not command you to worship Me and tell you that this is the straight path?"
Satan misled a great multitude of you. Did you not have any understanding
This is hell with which you were threatened
Suffer therein on this day for your disbelief
We shall seal your mouths on that Day, let your hands speak to us and your feet testify to what you had achieved
We could have blinded them had We wanted. Then they would have raced along to cross the Bridge but how could they have seen (their way)
We could have turned them into other creatures on the spot had We wanted and they would not have been able to precede or turn back
The physical growth of those whom We grant a long life will be reversed. Will you then not understand
We did not teach him (Muhammad) poetry, nor was he supposed to be a poet. It is only the word (of God) and the illustrious Qura
by which he may warn those who are living and may let the words of God come true against the unbelievers
Have they not seen what We have created from the labor of Our own hands? We have given them cattle
We have made the cattle subservient to them so they ride and consume them
From cattle they get milk and other benefits. Will they not then give thanks
They chose idols besides God in the hope of receiving help from them, but they will not be able to help them
Instead, the disbelievers will be brought into the presence of God as the soldiers of the idols
Muhammad, let not their words annoy you. We certainly know whatever they conceal or reveal
Has the human being not considered that We have created him from a drop of fluid. He is openly quarrelsome
He questions Our Resurrection of him, but has forgotten his own creation. He has said, "Who will give life to the bones which have become ashes?"
(Muhammad), tell him, "He who gave them life in the first place will bring them back to life again. He has the best knowledge of all creatures
He has created fire for you out of the green tree from which you can kindle other fires
Is the One who has created the heavens and the earth not able to create another creature like the human being? He certainly has the power to do so. He is the Supreme Creator and is All-knowing
Whenever He decides to create something He has only to say, "Exist," and it comes into existence
All glory belongs to the One in whose hands is the control of all things. To Him you will all return
