ALLAH in the
name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
'O beloved prophet! (Alif Lam, Mim, Saad.)
A Book has been sent to you, so let there be no
impediment in your heart because of it, so that you
may warn therewith and an admonition to the muslims.
'O people! Follow what has been sent down to you
from your Lord, and do not go behind other masters
leaving Him. Very little you understand.
And many a town We have destroyed then Our torment
came upon them by night or while they slept in the
Then nothing came out from their mouths when Our
torment came upon them but they said, 'we were
Then undoubtedly, We are necessarily to ask from
those to whom Messengers were sent and undoubtedly,
We are necessarily to ask from the Messengers.
Then surely We shall tell them with Our knowledge
and We were not absent.
And the weighing on that day is sure then those
whoso scales are heavy, they are to attain their
And those whose scales are light, then they are the
persons who have put their souls in loss, the
recompense of those excesses which they used to do
with Our signs.
And undoubtedly, We established you in the earth,
and have made therein the means of your livelihood.
How little thanks you give.
And undoubtedly, We created you, then made your
shapes, then We said to the angels, 'prostrate
before Adam then all those fell prostrate, but Iblis
(devil); he was not of those who prostrated.
He said, 'what prevented you that you did not fall
prostrate when I ordered you? Said he, I am better
than him, You created me of fire and made him of
He said 'get you down from here, it is not for you
that you may behave proudly living here, get out,
you are amongst the degraded ones.
Said, he' give me time till the day they are raised
He said, 'you are given time.'
Said he, I swear that because You have seduced me, I
shall necessarily sit on Your straight path in wait
Then, surely I will come near them, from before them
and from behind them, and from their right and from
their left. And You will not find most of them
He said, 'get out from here rejected, banished.
Surely those of them who will follow you, I will
fill Hell with you all."
And O Adam! Dwell you and your mate in the Paradise
then eat there from where so ever you will, and
approach not this tree, otherwise you will be among
Then the devil (Satan) put evil suggestion in their
hearts, so that he might open to them the things of
their shame which were hidden from them and said,
'your Lord has for bidden you from this tree only
because you may not become two angels or become
And he swore to them both that, I am well wisher of
Then he caused them to fall with delusion, then when
they tasted that tree, the things of their shame
became manifest to them, and they began to stick the
leaves of the Paradise on their bodies. And their
Lord said to them, 'Did I not forbid you from that
tree and tell you that the Devil (Satan) is your
Both of them submitted, 'O Our Lord! We have wronged
ourselves, if You forgive us not and have not mercy
on us, then certainly we are among losers.'
He said, 'Get down, in you one is enemy of the
another and you are to stay in earth till a fixed
time and there is provision for a time.
He said, 'you will be alive in it, and will die in
it, and therefrom you will be raised.'
'O children of Adam! Undoubtedly, We have sent down
towards you a dress that may cover your shameful
parts and one that be an adornment to you; and the
dress of righteousness, that is the best. This is
one of Allah's signs, that I they may be
'O children of Adam! Beware! Let not the devil
(Satan) tempts you, as he brought your parents out
from the paradise, stripping them of their dress
that they may see their shameful parts. Undoubtedly,
he and his tribe see you whence you see them not.
Undoubtedly, We have made the devils friends of
those who do not believe.
And when they commit any indecency, they say, 'we
found our forefathers on it and Allah commanded us
so. Then say, 'undoubtedly Allah commands not acts
of indecency.' Do you allege against Allah what you
Say you, My Lord has commanded justice and set your
faces aright at the time of each prayer, and worship
Him being exclusively His bondmen. As He originated
you so you will return.'
A party He has shown path and the error of a party
has been proved. They have taken the devils (Satan)
as guardians leaving Allah and they think that they
'O children of Adam! Take your adornment whenever
you go to mosque and eat and drink and do not cross
the limit. Undoubtedly, the persons crossing the
limit are not liked by Him.
Say you, 'who has forbidden the adornment of Allah,
which He brought forth for His bondmen and the pure
foods? Say you. 'That is for the believers in the
world and is exclusively for them on the Day of
Resurrection. Thus We explain fully the signs for
the people who have knowledge.
Say you, 'My Lord has forbidden the indecencies,
which of them are open and which are hidden. And
sin, and unjust excesses, and that you associate
with Allah that for which He has not sent down any
warrant and that you say of Allah what you know not.
And for every people there is a promise (been), then
when their term will come, they cannot remain behind
for an hour nor they get ahead of it.
'O children of Adam! If the Messengers come to you
from among you, reciting to you My signs! Then whoso
refrains from evil and amends, on them there is
neither any fear nor any grief.
And those who have belied Our signs and waxed proud
against them, they are the people of Hell, in it
they are to abide.
Then who is more unjust than he who has forged lie
against Allah or has belied His signs? They will
receive what is written in their lot till when Our
Messengers came to them for taking away their souls,
then they say to them, 'where are those whom you
used to worship beside Allah.' They say, 'they are
lost from us.' and they bear witness against their
own souls that they were infidels.
Allah says to them, enter the same Fire where other
communities of Jinn and mankind went before you when
a community enters it, it curses the other; until
when all have arrived therein, then the last will
say to the first, 'O our Lord, these led us astray,
then award them double torment Of the Fire. He will
say, 'all have double, but you know not.'
And the first will say to the last, 'you have then
not been anyhow better than us, taste therefore the
torment the recompense of what you did'.
Those who belied Our signs and waxed proud against
them, the gates of heaven will not be opened for
them, nor they will enter the paradise until the
camel enters-through the eye of a needle. And thus
We requite the guilty.
To them Fire will be the bed and Fire will be the
covering. And thus We requite the unjust.
And those who accepted faith and did good deeds to
their strength. We put not burden on anyone beyond
his strength. They are companions of Paradise; they
are to abide therein.
And We have taken out the rancours from their
breasts. Beneath them will low rivers and they will
say. 'all praise belong to Allah Who has guided us
to this, and we could not have found the way, if
Allah had not guided us, undoubtedly, the Messengers
of our Lord brought truth And it was proclaimed that
this is the paradise you have inherited the reward
of your doings.
And the companions of the Heaven called the
companions of the Hell, 'We have found what our Lord
promised us to be true, then have you too found what
your Lord promised you to be true? They said, 'yes,'
and in between them a caller called out: 'the curse
of Allah be upon the unjust.'
Who bar from the path of Allah and desire to make it
Crooked and dis-believe in the Hereafter.
And between Heaven and Hell there is a veil and on
the Heights, there shall be some men who will
recognise both groups by their fore-heads' and call
the people of Heaven, '(saying) peace be upon you,
'these have not entered into the Heaven but are
greedy for it.
And when their eyes will turn towards the people of
the Hell, they will say 'O' Our Lord! Keep us not
with the unjust people.
And the people of the heights will call to certain
men whom they recognise by their foreheads, and will
say, 'what did your multitude avail you and that in
which you took pride'?
Are these the people on whom you used to swear that
Allah would not amend His mercy a least to them?
They were rather told, enter Paradise, no fear upon
you nor any grief.'
And the companions of the Fire will call the
companions of the Heaven that give us some benefit
of your water or of that Allah has provided for you
as food. They will say 'undoubtedly, Allah has for
bidden these both to the infidels.'
Those who made their religion as a plaything and
amusement and the life of the world has deceived
them. Therefore to day We shall leave them as they
had left the conception of meeting of this Day and
as they used to deny Our signs.
And surely We have brought them a Book which We have
detailed with great knowledge, a guidance and mercy
to the people who believe.
What they are looking for, but only this that the
result of the sayings of the Book should come
before. The day when the foretold result will occur,
those who had forgotten it before will say.
'Undoubtedly the Messengers of our Lord had brought
the truth, then, is there any intercessor for us who
could intercede on our behalf? Or could We be sent
back so that we might do deeds other than that we
did before. Surely they put their souls at a loss,
and I have been lost from those who used to
Undoubtedly, your Lord is Allah, Who created the
heavens and earth in six days, then established
Himself on the Throne befitting to His Dignity. He
covers the night and day by each other following it
swiftly, and made the sun and moon and stars all
subservient to His command. Behold! His is the
creation and command. Blessed is Allah, the Lord of
Call on your Lord humbly and secretly. Undoubtedly,
He likes not those who cross the limit.
And spread not mischief in the earth after it has
been set right and call on Him fearing and longing.
Surely the mercy of Allah is nigh to the good doers.
It is He who sends forth winds bearing good tidings
before His mercy till they have carried heavy
clouds, We drive it towards any dead land, then send
down water therewith. Then caused to grow varied
fruits there with. Thus shall We bring forth the
dead, haply you may accept admonition.
And the land, which is good, its vegetation comes
forth with the command of Allah and from that which
is bad comes forth nothing but very little. Thus we
explain signs variedly for those who are grateful.
Undoubtedly, We sent Nuh towards his people then he
said. 'O my people! Worship Allah, you have no God
other than He. Surely I fear for you the torment of
the Mighty Day.'
The leaders of his people said, 'undoubtedly, we see
you in apparent error.
Said he, 'O my people no error is in me; but I am
Messenger of the Lord of the Worlds'.
I deliver to you the messages of my Lord and wish
your good and I know that from Allah, which you know
And have this surprised you that an admonition has
come to you from your Lord through a man from
amongst you, so that he may warn you and you be
god-fearing and haply you may be shown mercy?
Then they belied him, so We delivered him and those
with him in the Ark and drowned those who belied Our
signs, certainly that was a blind group.
And to Aad send Hud from their brethren. He said, `O
my people! worship Allah, you have no god other than
He.' Then do you not fear?
The leaders of his people said, 'surely, we find you
foolish and we surely think you to be one of the
Said he, 'O my people there is no concern of
foolishness with me, I am indeed a Messenger from
the Lord of the worlds.
I deliver to you the messages of my Lord and I am
your trustworthy well wisher.
And have this surprised you that an admonition has
come to you from your Lord through a man from
amongst you, so that he may warn you? And remember
when He appointed you as successors of the people of
Huh and increased the stature of your body; then
remember the bounties of Allah that haply you may
They said, 'Have you come to us that we should
worship Allah alone and leave what our fathers used
to worship, then bring you that you are promising
for us if you are truthful.
He said, 'surely there have befallen you the torment
and wrath of Lord. Are you disputing with me only
about those names which you and your fathers have
named for which Allah has sent down no authority?
Wait then; I also wait with you.
Then We delivered him and those with him by showing
a great mercy from Us and cut off the roots of those
who used to belie Our signs and they were not
And to Thamud We sent, Saleh from their brethren. He
said. 'O my people! worship Allah, you have no God
other than He. Undoubtedly, there has come to you
bright proof from your Lord, this is a she-camel of
Allah a sign for you. So leave her that she may eat
in Allah's earth and touch her not with evil lest a
painful torment will overtake you.
And remember when He made you successors of Aad, and
assigned you a place in the land that you build
palaces in its plains, and hew out houses in its
mountains. Then remember the bounties of Allah and
wander not in the earth spreading mischief.
The proud leaders of his people said, 'to the weak
Muslims, 'do you know that Saleh is a Messenger of
his Lord'? They said, 'We believe in what has been
sent with him.
The proud ones said, 'in that which you belied we
Then they hamstrung the she-camel and rebelled
against the command of their Lord and said, 'O
Saleh, 'bring upon ' us that which you are promising
for, if you are a Messenger.
Then the earthquake took them so in the morning they
lay prostrate in their homes.
Then Saleh turned back his face from them and said,
'O my people! Undoubtedly, I did deliver to you the
messages of my Lord, and wished your good, but you
do not approve the well wishers.
And sent Lut, when he said to his people, do you
commit that indecency which was ' not committed by
any one in, the world before you?
You rather approach men lustily instead of women on
the contrary you people have crossed the limit.
And there was no answer of his people but this: They
said, 'turn them out of your town, these people
aspire to be pure.'
Then We delivered him and his family saves his wife,
she was of those who remained behind.
And We rained down upon them a rain, then behold how
was the end of the sinners?
And to Madyan We sent Shuaib from there brethren. He
said, 'O my people worship Allah, there is no God
for you other than He Undoubtedly, there has come to
you bright proof from your Lord, then fill up the
measure and weight, and give not the people goods
after diminishing and spread not mischief in the
earth after fair ordering This is good for you, if
And sit not on every path threatening and barring
from Allah's way to the wayfarers who have believed
in Him, and desiring crookedness in it: and
remember, when you were few. He multiplied you, and
beholds how was the end of the mischief-makers.
And if there is a party of you who believe in that
with which I have been sent and a party who believe
not, then wait till Allah decides between us; and
Allah's decision is the
The proud Chiefs of his people said, 'O Shoaib, we
swear that we will drive you out and the Muslims who
are with you from our town or you come back to our
faith'. He said. What, even though we hate it?
Certainly we shall forge a lie against Allah, if we
returned to your faith after Allah has delivered us
from it. And it is not for we Muslims that we should
come back in your faith but that Allah Who is our
Lord so willed. The knowledge of our Lord
comprehends everything. We have relied on Allah. O
our Lord! Decide between us and our people with
truth and Your decision is the best.
And the infidel chiefs of his people said, 'if you
follow Shoaib, you shall certainly be the losers.'
Then an earthquake over took them; so in the morning
they fell prostrate in their homes,
Those who belied Shoaib as if they had never been
dwelling in those homes. Those who belied Shoaib
were the people who were ruined.
Then Shoaib turned his face from them and said,' O
my people, I have already delivered to you the
messages of my Lord and admonished for your good,
how then should I lament over infidels.
And We have not sent any prophet in any town but We
seized the people thereof with adversity and
suffering that anyhow they might lament.
Then We changed the place of evil with good until
they became numerous and said, "no doubt, sufferings
and comforts visited our fathers," then We seized
them suddenly while they were unmindful.
And if the people of the towns had believed and
feared, then We would surely have opened upon them
blessings from heavens and earth but they belied,
then We arrested them on account of their doings.
Do the people of the towns not fear that Our torment
might come upon them at night while they are
Or do the people of the towns not fear that Our
torment might come upon them in daylight while they
Are they unaware of the secret devise of Allah? And
none becomes fearless against the secret devise of
Allah but the losers.
And do those who inherited the land after the owners
of it not get so much guidance that if We please, We
would have afflicted them for their sins? And We put
a seal upon their hearts so that they hear nothing.
These are the towns the stories of which We relate
to you, and undoubtedly, there came to them their
Messengers with bright proofs, but they were not
able to believe what they had first rejected. Thus
Allah put a seal upon the, hearts of the infidels.
And We found not most ' of them true to their words,
and necessarily, We found most of them disobedient.
Then, after them, We sent Moses towards Firawn
(Pharaoh) and his Chiefs with Our Signs, but they
did injustice to those signs, see then how was the
end of the mischief
And Moses said, 'O, Firawn! I am a Messenger from
the Lord of the Worlds.
It is my duty not to say anything about Allah but
the truth. I have come to you all with sign from
your Lord, then let the children of Israel go with
He said, 'If you have come with any Sign, then bring
forth if you are truthful.
Then Moses cast his staff, it atonce became a
And he drew forth his hand after putting it into his
collar, then it began to shine before the beholders.
The Chiefs of the people of Pharaoh said, 'this is
indeed a magician knowing.'
He desires to turn you out from your land, what is
your advice then?
They said, 'put him off and his brother, and send
into the city men to collect.
That they may bring to you every magician having
And the magicians came to Pharaoh (Firawn) and said,
we shall get some reward if we win.'
Firawn said, 'yes', and then you shall be near ones.
They said, 'O Musa, either you throw first or we be
Musa said, 'you throw,' when they threw, they
enchanted the eyes of the people and frightened them
and brought forth a great magic.
And We revealed to Musa, throw your staff, then
suddenly it began to swallow their lying shows.
Then the truth was established and their works
Then they were laid vanquished here and returned
And the magicians were made to prostrate.
They said, 'We believe in the Lord of the World.'
Who is the Lord of Musa and Haroon?
Firawn said, 'you have believed in Him before I gave
you leave. This is indeed a big plot which you all
have plotted in the city that you may drive forth
its people therefrom; so now you shall know.'
I shall assuredly cut off your hands and your feet
on alternate sides, and then I shall hang you all.
They said, 'We are to return towards our Lord.
And what looked you bad of us, save this that we
have believed in the signs of our Lord, when they
came to us, O our Lord pour upon us patience and
cause us die as Muslims.
And the Chiefs of the people of Firawn said, 'Do you
leave Musa and his people for this that they may
spread mischief in the land and leave you and your
gods? He said, 'now we shall kill their sons and let
live their daughters and surely we are dominant over
Musa said to his people, 'seek the help of Allah and
have patience, no doubt, Allah is the owner of the
earth. Makes successor whomsoever He pleases of His
bondmen. And the end is in the hand of the
They said, 'We were oppressed before your coming to
us and since you have come to us', He said, 'it is
near that your Lord may destroy your foe and make
you successor in the land to see then how you act.
And no doubt, We seized the people of Firawn with
years of dearth and scarcity of fruits, haply they
may accept admonition.
Then whenever, they pot good, they used to say,
'this is for us', and whenever evil smote them they
took it as bad omen with Musa and those with him.
Behold!, their ill fortune is with Allah, but most
of them do not know.
And they said, 'whatever the nature of a Sign you
may bring to us to enchant us therewith, we are in
no way to believe you.
Then We sent upon them the flood, and the locusts
and the lice, and the frogs and the blood - distinct
signs, then they waxed proud and they were a sinful
And whenever the torment fell upon them, they used
to say, 'O Musa, pray for us to your Lord because of
that covenant of His which is with you. No doubt, if
you would remove from us the torment, we would
certainly believe in you and will send with you the
children of Israel.
But whenever We removed the torment from them for a
term to which they were to reach, they retracted.
We then took vengeance on them, therefore We drowned
them in the river, because they belied Our Signs and
were unaware of them.
And We made a people who were already suppressed,
inheritors of the eastern and western parts of that
land in which We put Our blessings And the gracious
promise of your Lord was fulfilled for the children
of Israel, the recompense of their patience. And We
destroyed whatever Firawn and his people made and
what they used to erect.
And We brought the children of Israel across the
river, and then they came upon a people sitting
devotedly before their idols. They said, 'O Musa,
make for us a God just as they have so many gods. He
said, 'Surely you are an ignorant people'.
This condition in which they are, is of destruction
and whatever they are doing is fully void.
He said, "Shall I seek for you a God other than
Allah whereas He has exalted you above all peoples.
And remember, when We delivered you from the people
of Firawn who afflicted you with evil punishment,
slaughtering your sons and letting your daughters
live. And therein was the great bounty of your Lord.
And We made Musa a promise of thirty nights and
completed adding ten more in them, so the promise of
his Lord was completed by forty nights. And Musa
said to his brother, Haroon, 'be my vicegerent among
my people and do right and follow not the way of
And when Musa came to Our appointed time and his
Lord spoke to him, he submitted, 'O my Lord! Show me
Your sight that I may behold You, Said He, you shall
never see me; but look towards this mountain, if it
remains standing at its place, then soon you will
see Me. Then when his Lord made His light shine on
the mountain, He broke it into pieces; and Musa fell
down unconscious. Then when he came to senses, he
said, hollowed be you turn towards you and I am the
first of the Muslims.
Said Allah, 'O Musa, I have chosen you from amongst
the people by My Messages and by My word. Take then
what I have given you and be of the grateful.
And We wrote for him on the Tablets of everything an
admonition, and details of everything, and said, 'O
Musa, take it with firmness and bid your people to
follow the best of it. Soon I shall show you the
abode of the dis-obedients.
And I shall turn from My Signs those who wish
greatness in the earth unjustly, And even if they
see all the signs, they will not believe therein,
and if they see the path of guidance, they will not
like to walk in it; and if they see the path of
error, they will be ready to adopt it. This is so
because they belied Our Signs and posed themselves
And those who have belied Our Signs and the meeting
of the Hereafter their all deeds are wasted. What
they will get in recompense but, the same which,
they used to do.
And after Musa, his people made a calf out of their
ornaments, a lifeless body, producing a lowing
sound. Did they not see that neither it talked to
them and nor guided them to any way? They took it,
and they were unjust.
And when they regretted and understood that they had
strayed, they said, 'If our Lord have not mercy upon
us and forgives us not, then we are ruined'.
And Musa returned to his people full of anger,
peeved, he said, that 'how badly you acted in my
place after me'? 'Did you hasten from the Commends
of your Lord'? And he threw down the tablets and
began to pull his brother (Haroon) towards him
catching hold of the hair of his brother head. He
said, 'O son of my mother, the people deemed me week
and were about to kill me, so do not make the
enemies laugh over me and place me not with the
He submitted, 'O my Lord, forgive my brother, and me
and cause us to enter Your mercy and You are the
most Merciful of the merciful.
Undoubtedly, those who had already taken the calf
for themselves, soon the wrath and disgrace of their
Lord are to reach them in the life of the world. And
thus we recompense those who cast aspersions,
And those who committed evils and thereafter
repented and accepted faith, then after that your
Lord is Forgiving, Merciful.
And when the anger of Musa was appeased, he took up
the tablets, and in their writing there is guidance
and mercy for those who fear their Lord.
And Musa chose seventy men of his people for Our
promised appointment, then when earthquake overtook
them, Musa submitted, 'O my Lord, had You wished,
then You would have destroyed them and me before.
Will you kill us for what our foolish ones have
done'? That is not but your test, whereby you, cause
astray whom you will, and guide whom you will. You
are our Protector, You forgive us and have mercy
upon us, and you are the best of the forgivers.
And prescribe for us in this world good and in the
Hereafter, no doubt, we have returned to You. He
said, 'My punishment, I inflict whom I will, and My
mercy encompasses all things. Then soon I shall
prescribe it for those who fear God and pay the poor
due and believe in Our Signs.
Those who will serve the Messenger, unlettered the,
Communicator of hidden news when they will find with
them have written in the Taurat and Injeel. He will
bid them to do good and will forbid them from doing
evil, and will make lawful for them clean things and
will forbid for them unclean things, and will take
off from them that burden and shackles which were
upon them. Then those who believe in him and honour
him and help him and follow that light which has
been sent down with him, they are the persons who
attained their objects.
Say you, 'O mankind'; I am Messenger to you all from
Allah to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and
of the earth. None is to be worshiped except He, He
gives life and causes death, believe then in Allah
and His Messenger the unlettered, the Communicator
of hidden news that he believes in Allah and His
words; and serve him so that you may be guided.'
And of the people of Musa, there is a community that
tells the path of truth and does justice therewith.
And We divided them in twelve tribes, various
communities. And We revealed to Musa, when his
people asked him for water that strike with your
staff this rock, then there gushed forth from it
twelve Springs. Every community recognised its
drinking place. And We made clouds as shades over
them, and sent down Manna and Salwa upon them. Eat
of the clean things We provided for you, and they
harmed Us not, but they harmed their own souls.
And remember when it was said to them, "Dwell in
this town and eat from it whatever you like, and
say, 'our sins may be removed and enter the gate,
prostrating, We shall forgive you yours sins. Soon
We shall give more to righteous ones.
Then the unjust of them changed the word contrary to
that what was ordered to them, then We sent down
upon them torment from the heaven, the recompense of
And ask them the condition of the town that was on
the seashore; when they crossed the limit in the
matter of sab-bath, when on the day of Sab-bath
their fish came swimming before them, and the day
that was not of Sabbath, they did not come. Thus, We
used to try them on account of their dis-obedience.
When a group among them said, 'Why do you admonish
those whom Allah is to kill or to chastise with a
severe torment'. They said, 'as an excuse before
your Lord, and that haply they may fear'.
Then when they forgot what they had been admonished,
We rescued those who forbade from evil, and caught
the unjust in a vile torment the recompense of their
Then again when they rebelled against the Command of
prohibition, We said to them, 'be you apes, driven
And when your Lord proclaimed that necessarily till
the Day of Resurrection, He would continue to send
such against them who would make them taste evil
punishment. Undoubtedly, your Lord necessarily, is
swift in retribution, and undoubtedly. He is
And We scattered them into communities in the earth,
some of them are righteous and some of them
otherwise and We tried them with good things and
evil that haply they nay return.
Then after them came such degenerate successors who
inherited the Book. They take the goods of this
world and say, 'now we shall be for given'. And if
more goods the like of them came to them, they would
take them. Was not the covenant of the Book taken
from them, that they should say nothing concerning
Allah but the truth, and they have read that? And
undoubtedly, the last abode is better for the
God-fearing. Have you then no wisdom?
And those who hold fast to the Book and establish
prayer. We waste not the reward of the righteous.
And when We raised mountain over them as that is a
canopy and they thought that it will fall upon them,
hold fast what We have given to you and remember
what is therein, that haply you may be God-fearing.
And O beloved Prophet remember, when your Lord
brought forth from the loin of Adam's children their
seed and made themselves witnesses against own
selves,' 'Am not your Lord? All said, 'Why not we
all bear witness', lest you should say on the Day of
Resurrection, that we were not aware of it.
Or lest you should say, Polytheism was committed by
our forefathers before, and we were their offspring!
Will you then destroy us for what was done by
And thus We explain Our; signs variedly and in order
that, they may return.
And O beloved Prophet! Relate to them the story of
him to whom We gave Our signs then he stepped away
clearly from them, then Satan followed him and he
became of the misguided.
And if We had willed, We would have lifted him on
account of Our Signs, but he, clung to the earth and
followed his desires, then his condition is like a
dog, if you attack him, he brings his tongue out and
if you leave him, he brings his tongue out. This is
the condition of those who belied Our Signs. So you
recount them the admonition haply they may ponder.
What a bad example is of those who belied Our Signs,
and they did wrong their own souls.
Whom so Allah guides, he is on the right path, and
whom so Allah leads astray, those, they remained in
Undoubtedly, We have created for Hell many jinn and
men, they have hearts, but understand not therewith
and the eyes, they see not there with and the ears,
they hear not therewith. They are like cattle, nay,
more misguided. They are indeed lying heedless.
And to Allah belongs all the best names, so call Him
by them, and leave those who go out from truth with
regard to His names, they will soon get for what
they have done.
And out of Our making are a community who tell the
truth and do justice therewith.
And those who belied Our Signs, soon We shall carry
them gradually towards torment whence they will know
And I will let loose them. Undoubtedly, My secret
plan is the firmest.
Do they not ponder that there is no relation of
insanity to their companion? He is only a warner
Do they not look into the kingdom of the heavens and
the earth, and what things that Allah has made, and
that perhaps their term may have come night? Then in
what discourse they will believe thereafter
Whomsoever Allah leads astray none is to guide him.
And He leaves them to wander in their Contumacy.
They ask you concerning the Hour that when it is to
come, Say you 'the knowledge of it is only with my
Lord, He alone will disclose it at its proper time'.
It is lying heavy on the heavens and earth; it shall
not come upon you but of a sudden. They ask you, as
you have already investigated it well say you, 'the
knowledge of it is only with Allah', but most people
do not know.
Say you, 'I am not independent for doing good and
bad to my own self, but as Allah please. And if I
would have known Unseen, then I would have gathered
ample good, and no evil would have touched me, I am
only a warner and giver of glad tidings to a people
It is He Who created you from a single soul, and
made therefrom his mate that he may find rest in
her, then when the male covered her, she bore a
light burden, then carried it about, then when she
grew heavy, both prayed to their Lord, "necessarily
if You would give us a child befitting, then
undoubtedly, we shall be grateful."
Then when He gave them a befitting child, they
ascribed His associates, in respect of His bestowal
but Allah is exalted above from their polytheism.
Do they associate those who make nothing and they
are themselves created?
And neither they can give any help to them, nor can

And if you call them towards guidance, they will not
follow you. It is same to you whether you call them
or you remain silent.
Undoubtedly, those! Whom you worship besides Allah,
are bondsmen like you, then call upon them and they
respond to you, if you are truthful.

Book and He befriends the righteous.
And those, whom you worship besides Him, can not

(O beloved Prophet)! Adopt forgiveness and bid to
good and turn away from the Ignorant.
And (O listener!) if the evil-one (Satan) give you
any pricking, then seek refuge of Allah.
Undoubtedly, it is He Who is Hearing, Knowing.
Undoubtedly, those who fear Allah, when a thought of
Satan touches them, become careful, at the same time
their eyes are opened.
And those who are brothers of Satan, they drag them
on towards error, then they relax not.
And (O beloved Prophet)! When you bring not to them
any Sign, they say, 'Why have you not made it
yourself? Say you, 'I follow only what is revealed
to me from my Lord; This is an eye opener from your
Lord and guidance and mercy for the Muslims.
And when the Quran is recited, hear it patiently and
be silent so that you may have mercy.
And remember, your Lord within yourself, humbly and

to Him they prostrate. [^] (SAJDA) 1
