You are one of the messengers.
A revelation from the mighty and merciful.
To warn people whose fathers had not been warned and they were careless.
The word has already come to pass against most of them, so they don´t believe.
For We have placed cuffs around their necks and they reach up to their chins so they are stiffened.
And We placed a barrier before them and a barrier behind them and sealed them in, so they don´t see.
It makes no difference to them whether you warn them or warn them not, they will not believe.
For you warn only who follows the reminder and fears the Merciful in secret, so give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward.
For We revive the dead and record what they have sent ahead and their traces, and We list everything in a clear ledger.
And coin for them the likeness of the inhabitants of the town when the messengers came to it.
When We sent two to them but they denied them, so We added a third, and they said: we have been sent to you.
They said, you are only humans like us, and the Merciful has not sent anything, for you are only lying.
They said: our Lord knows that we were indeed sent to you.
And our duty is only to convey clearly.
They said: we see a bad omen in you, if you do not stop we will stone you and a painful punishment from us will afflict you.
They said: your bad omen is with you once you have been reminded, but you are wasteful people.
And a man came running from the far end of the town saying: oh my people, follow the messengers.
Follow those who do not ask you for a reward and are guided.
And how should I not serve the One who originated me and you return to Him?
Should I take gods besides Him? If the Merciful wants harm for me, their intercession does not benefit me the least and they don´t save me.
I would then be in clear error.
I surely believe in your Lord, so listen to me.
He was told: enter the garden (of paradise); he said: if only my people knew.
How my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honoured.
And We did not send soldiers from the sky against his people after him, and We never send them.
For it was only a single scream and they were extinct.
What loss for My servants: never does a messenger reach them but they make fun of him.
Do they not see how many towns We destroyed before them and that they do not return to them?
And that they will altogether be presented before Us?
And a sign for them is the dead earth. We revive it and grow from it seed crops from which they eat.
And We place gardens of palm trees and grapes on it and make springs gush out from it.
So that they eat from its fruit whilst they did not produce it themselves. Will they not be grateful?
Glorified is He who created all pairs of that which the earth grows and of themselves and of what they do not (yet) know.
And a sign for them is the night. We remove the day from it and they are in darkness.
And the sun travels to its destination, that is the arrangement of the mighty and knowing.
And for the moon We have arranged phases until it returns like a withered palm leaf.
It is not befitting for the sun to overtake the moon nor for the night to precede the day, and each travels in an orbit.
And a sign for them is that We carried their descendants on the laden ship.
And created something similar for them which they board.
And if We please, We drown them, and there will be no one to call for help and they will not be saved.
Except by a mercy from Us and as a provision for a while.
And when they are told: beware of what is ahead of you and what is behind you so that you find mercy;
And whenever one of the signs of their Lord comes to them, they tend to turn away from it.
And when they are told: spend of what Allah has provided you with, those who reject (the truth) say to those who believe: should we feed whom Allah would have fed if He pleased? You are surely in clear error.
And they say: when will this promise happen if you are truthful?
They are only waiting for a single scream to overtake them, yet they argue.
Then they cannot raise a warning nor return to their families.
And the horn will be blown and they will stream to their Lord from the graves.
They will say: woe to us, who has dispatched us from our resting place? This is what the Merciful did promise and the messengers were truthful.
For it was only a single scream and they all are presented before Us.
Then today no soul will be wronged the least and you will only be rewarded for what you did.
The inhabitants of the garden will be happily busy today.
They and their partners will be reclining on couches in the shade.
They will have fruit there and have whatever they ask for.
Peace offered by a merciful Lord.
And keep away today oh sinners.
Did I not take your promise, oh children of Adam, not to serve the devil, for he is a clear enemy to you?
And to serve Me, that is a straight path?
And he had already led astray a large group of you, so did you not understand?
This is hell which you were promised.
Enter it today on account of having rejected (the truth).
Today We seal their mouths, and their hands will talk to Us and their feet will give evidence of what they used to commit.
And if We pleased We would have obliterated their eyesight, so they search for a path but how can they see?
And if We pleased We would have frozen them on the spot, so they could neither go forward nor back.
And whomever We give long life, We reverse his development, so do they not understand?
And We did not teach him poetry, nor would it befit him, for it is only a reminder and a clear reading (Qur´an).
To warn whoever is alive and so that the word comes to pass against those who reject (the truth).
Do they not consider that We created for them from Our handiwork cattle, so they own it?
And We made them submissive to them, and they are carried by them and they eat from them.
And they have benefits and drink from the, so are they not grateful?
And they adopt gods besides Allah so they would help them.
They cannot help them but they are ever ready to defend them.
So do not worry about what they say, for We know what they conceal and what they disclose.
Does man not see that We created him from a sperm, then he argues openly.
And he coins a likeness for Us and forgets his creation; he says: who will revive the bones when they decayed?
Say: the One who brought them into existence the first time will revive them, and He knows all creation.
The One who gave you fire from a green tree, so that you kindle with it.
Is not the One who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? For sure, He is the knowing creator.
For His command whenever He wants something is to say to it: Be, then it is.
So glorified is the One in whose hand rests the kingdom of everything and to whom you will return.
