By the judicious 'Qur’ān'
That you are, absolutely, without question, of the ‘Messengers’
(This Glorious 'Qur’ān') is a ‘Revelation’ of the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful
So that you may be able to warn a people whose fathers were not warned, so they are inattentive.
Certainly the Word (i.e Verdict of your Lord) has proved true against most of them, so they are not inclined to believe (in Allâh).
We have placed manacles around their necks reaching up to the chins. Thus, they are forced to keep their heads up.
We have set a barrier before them and a barrier behind them, and thus, We have covered them up, so that they may not be able to see.
It is all the same for them whether you forewarn them or not, they are not prepared to profess a belief (in the Omnipotence & Omnipresence of Allâh).
You can only admonish the one who follows the Reminder, (the Glorious Qur'an), and shows honor and reverence for Most Beneficent God, (even) in secret. Thus, give him the joyful news of forgiveness and a generous reward.
Indeed, We resuscitate the dead, We record whatever they send before them, and their footprints. We keep everything recorded in a clear writing.
Set forth for them a parable, the (tale of) the companions of the town, when there came ‘Messengers’ to them.
We sent to them two ‘Messengers’, but they denied both of them. Then We strengthened them with a third one who said unto them: “We are indeed ‘Messengers’ (of Allâh) to you.”
They said: “You are not more than human beings like us, neither has the Most Beneficent (Allâh) revealed anything. You are only lying.”
The ‘Messengers’ said: “Our Lord knows perfectly well that we are indeed ‘Messengers’(of Allâh) to you.”
Our mission is only to convey (& promulgate the message of Allâh) in intelligible way to you."
They said: “We prognosticate an evil omen coming from you. If it happens that you refrain not (from this nonsense), we will definitely stone you (to death), and certainly an agonizing chastisement from us would touch you.”
The ‘Messengers’ replied: “Your evil omen is with you. (Do you consider this an evil omen) when you are admonished? Nay, but you are prodigals.”
There came from the furthermost part of the town a man running. He said: “O’ my people, follow the ‘Messengers’.
Follow those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received the revelation in the knowledge of Allâh.
Why should I not worship (& venerate) the One who created me? Unto Him, you are destined to return.
Will I take others besides Him as gods? If the Most Beneficent God intends me any harm, their intercession will not avail me at all, nor will they be capable of saving me?
Definitely in that case I should be in utter deception.
Indeed, I believe in your Lord, thus, hear me.”
It was said (unto him after they had murdered him), "Enter ‘Al-Jannah’!" He said: "Ah, would that my people had known
That my Lord has forgiven and made me of the honored ones!”
We sent not down upon his people after him any soldiers from the sky, nor do We ever send!
It was not more than one single blast. Thus, they were lifeless.
Woe unto the servants! Never comes to them a ‘Messenger’, but they mock at him.
Have they not seen how many generations We annihilated before them? Indeed, they will not be able to return to them.
Indeed, all of them are destined to be brought before Us.
One sign for them is the dead land: We resuscitate it and bring forth from it grain so that they may eat of it.
We make therein gardens of date-palms and grapes, and We cause the springs of the great deep to burst forth therein
So that they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands made it not. Will they not then be grateful?
Glory be to Him Who created pairs of all things, of what the earth grows, as well as themselves, and other creations that they know not.
Another sign for them is the night; We pull off the day from it. Subsequently, they are left in darkness.
And the sun runs on its destination. That is the ordinance of the All- Mighty, the All-Knowing.
And the moon, We have ordained for it specific phases until it ends up looking like an old date branch.
It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day; each one is swimming in a sphere.
Another sign for them is that we carried their offspring in the laden ship.
We have created for them similar things on which they ride.
If We will, We can (easily) drown them. Then there will be no salvage for them, nor can they be rescued.
But by mercy from Us and as an enjoyment for a while.
When it is said unto them: "Beware of that which is before you and that which is behind you, so that you may attain mercy,"
Never any sign of the signs of their Lord came to them, but they did turn away from it, refusing to accept it.
When it is said unto them: "Expend from that which Allâh has provided for you," those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) say unto those who adhere to Faith: “What! Shall we feed those whom if Allâh willed, He could feed? You are in naught but in manifest deception.
They say: "When will this promise come to pass, if you are truthful?”
They await but a single cry, which will overtake them while they are yet quarrelling.
Then they will not be capable of making bequest, nor they will return to their family.
The Trumpet will be blown; then behold, they will hasten on from their sepulchers to their Lord.
They will say: "Woe unto us! Who has raised us up from our resting place?” (It will be said unto them): "This is what the Most Beneficent (God) promised, and the ‘Messengers’ spoke the truth!"
It will be but a single cry; then behold; they are all brought before Us.
This day, none will be wronged in anything, nor will be remunerated aught but for what you used to do.
Indeed, the ‘Companions of Al-Jannah’, that day, will be too busy to enjoy themselves.
They and their spouses will be in delightful shades, reclining on couches.
They will have therein fruits and whatever they desire.
‘Peace’! A word from the Lord, the Most Merciful.
(The Lord will command): “As for you, O’ ungodly sinners, stand apart from the others on this day!"
Did I not make a covenant with you, O’ Children of ‘Adam’, that you should not worship (& venerate) the Devil - certainly, He is an obvious enemy to you-
And that you should worship (& venerate) Me Alone? This is the straight path.
Indeed, he led astray numerous people from among you. Did you not possess self- awareness that allowed you to understand?
This is ‘Gehenna’ which you were promised!
Burn therein this day, as an outcome of your constant refusal to accept Islamic monotheism."
On that day, We shall seal up their mouths, letting their hands speak to Us and their feet testify to what they used to do.
If We had willed, We would surely have obliterated their eyes, so that they should struggle for the way, but how would they see?
If We had willed, We would surely have transformed them (into animals or objects) in their place. Thus, they would not be able to precede or turn back.
The one whom We cause to live long life; We reverse in creation. Do they not possess self- awareness that allows them to understand?
We have not taught him the (art) of poetry, it is not appropriate for him. This is naught but a ‘Reminder’ and incontrovertible 'Qur’ān',
So as to forewarn those who are alive, and to allow the word to come true against those who lack Faith in (Allâh).
Have they not seen that we created livestock for them, out of what Our hands have wrought, and then they are their owners?
We have subjected the livestock to them. Some they ride, and some they eat.
They have other advantages from them, as well as beverages. Will they not then be grateful?
They have taken (for worship mythological) deities besides Allâh so that they may be helped.
In fact, they are incapable of helping them. They made themselves soldiers serving and helping (their mythological deities).
Therefore, let not their words sadden you. We certainly know whatever they hide and whatever they disclose.
Does not man see that We have created him from a semen-drop? Then lo! He is a compulsive conversationalist!
He sets forth for us a similitude, and forgets his own creation. He says: "Who will give life to these bones, when they disintegrate and fall lifeless into the ashes."
Say: "The one who will give life to them is the One who initiated them in the first place. He is the All-Knowing of every creation.
The One Who produces for you fire out of the green tree, and then from it you kindle.
Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth capable of creating the like of them? Yea! He is indeed the Supreme Creator, the Omniscient.
Verily, His Command, when He intends to create a thing, is only to say unto it, "Be," consequently, there it is.
Therefore, Glory be unto Him in Whose Hand is the sovereignty of all things, and to Him, you are destined to be brought back."
