1Certainly will the believers have succeeded:
2They who are during their prayer humbly submissive
3And they who turn away from ill speech
4And they who are observant of zakah
5And they who guard their private parts
6Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed -
7But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors -
8And they who are to their trusts and their promises attentive
9And they who carefully maintain their prayers -
10Those are the inheritors
11Who will inherit al-Firdaus. They will abide therein eternally.
12And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.
13Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.
14Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.
15Then indeed, after that you are to die.
16Then indeed you, on the Day of Resurrection, will be resurrected.
17And We have created above you seven layered heavens, and never have We been of [Our] creation unaware.
18And We have sent down rain from the sky in a measured amount and settled it in the earth. And indeed, We are Able to take it away.
19And We brought forth for you thereby gardens of palm trees and grapevines in which for you are abundant fruits and from which you eat.
20And [We brought forth] a tree issuing from Mount Sinai which produces oil and food for those who eat.
21And indeed, for you in livestock is a lesson. We give you drink from that which is in their bellies, and for you in them are numerous benefits, and from them you eat.
22And upon them and on ships you are carried.
23And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, and he said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?"
24But the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, "This is not but a man like yourselves who wishes to take precedence over you; and if Allah had willed [to send a messenger], He would have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our forefathers.
25He is not but a man possessed with madness, so wait concerning him for a time."
26[Noah] said, "My Lord, support me because they have denied me."
27So We inspired to him, "Construct the ship under Our observation, and Our inspiration, and when Our command comes and the oven overflows, put into the ship from each [creature] two mates and your family, except those for whom the decree [of destruction] has proceeded. And do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are to be drowned.
28And when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you, then say, 'Praise to Allah who has saved us from the wrongdoing people.'
29And say, 'My Lord, let me land at a blessed landing place, and You are the best to accommodate [us].' "
30Indeed in that are signs, and indeed, We are ever testing [Our servants].
31Then We produced after them a generation of others.
32And We sent among them a messenger from themselves, [saying], "Worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?"
33And the eminent among his people who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the Hereafter while We had given them luxury in the worldly life said, "This is not but a man like yourselves. He eats of that from which you eat and drinks of what you drink.
34And if you should obey a man like yourselves, indeed, you would then be losers.
35Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones that you will be brought forth [once more]?
36How far, how far, is that which you are promised.
37Life is not but our worldly life - we die and live, but we will not be resurrected.
38He is not but a man who has invented a lie about Allah, and we will not believe him."
39He said, "My Lord, support me because they have denied me."
40[Allah] said, "After a little, they will surely become regretful."
41So the shriek seized them in truth, and We made them as [plant] stubble. Then away with the wrongdoing people.
42Then We produced after them other generations.
43No nation will precede its time [of termination], nor will they remain [thereafter].
44Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe.
45Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority
46To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were arrogant and were a haughty people.
47They said, "Should we believe two men like ourselves while their people are for us in servitude?"
48So they denied them and were of those destroyed.
49And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided.
50And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign and sheltered them within a high ground having level [areas] and flowing water.
51[Allah said], "O messengers, eat from the good foods and work righteousness. Indeed, I, of what you do, am Knowing.
52And indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so fear Me."
53But the people divided their religion among them into sects - each faction, in what it has, rejoicing.
54So leave them in their confusion for a time.
55Do they think that what We extend to them of wealth and children
56Is [because] We hasten for them good things? Rather, they do not perceive.
57Indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord
58And they who believe in the signs of their Lord
59And they who do not associate anything with their Lord
60And they who give what they give while their hearts are fearful because they will be returning to their Lord -
61It is those who hasten to good deeds, and they outstrip [others] therein.
62And We charge no soul except [with that within] its capacity, and with Us is a record which speaks with truth; and they will not be wronged.
63But their hearts are covered with confusion over this, and they have [evil] deeds besides disbelief which they are doing,
64Until when We seize their affluent ones with punishment, at once they are crying [to Allah] for help.
65Do not cry out today. Indeed, by Us you will not be helped.
66My verses had already been recited to you, but you were turning back on your heels
67In arrogance regarding it, conversing by night, speaking evil.
68Then have they not reflected over the Qur'an, or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers?
69Or did they not know their Messenger, so they are toward him disacknowledging?
70Or do they say, "In him is madness?" Rather, he brought them the truth, but most of them, to the truth, are averse.
71But if the Truth had followed their inclinations, the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them would have been ruined. Rather, We have brought them their message, but they, from their message, are turning away.
72Or do you, [O Muhammad], ask them for payment? But the reward of your Lord is best, and He is the best of providers.
73And indeed, you invite them to a straight path.
74But indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter are deviating from the path.
75And even if We gave them mercy and removed what was upon them of affliction, they would persist in their transgression, wandering blindly.
76And We had gripped them with suffering [as a warning], but they did not yield to their Lord, nor did they humbly supplicate, [and will continue thus]
77Until when We have opened before them a door of severe punishment, immediately they will be therein in despair.
78And it is He who produced for you hearing and vision and hearts; little are you grateful.
79And it is He who has multiplied you throughout the earth, and to Him you will be gathered.
80And it is He who gives life and causes death, and His is the alternation of the night and the day. Then will you not reason?
81Rather, they say like what the former peoples said.
82They said, "When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
83We have been promised this, we and our forefathers, before; this is not but legends of the former peoples."
84Say, [O Muhammad], "To whom belongs the earth and whoever is in it, if you should know?"
85They will say, "To Allah." Say, "Then will you not remember?"
86Say, "Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the Great Throne?"
87They will say, "[They belong] to Allah." Say, "Then will you not fear Him?"
88Say, "In whose hand is the realm of all things - and He protects while none can protect against Him - if you should know?"
89They will say, "[All belongs] to Allah." Say, "Then how are you deluded?"
90Rather, We have brought them the truth, and indeed they are liars.
91Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have sought to overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him].
92[He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, so high is He above what they associate [with Him].
93Say, [O Muhammad], "My Lord, if You should show me that which they are promised,
94My Lord, then do not place me among the wrongdoing people."
95And indeed, We are able to show you what We have promised them.
96Repel, by [means of] what is best, [their] evil. We are most knowing of what they describe.
97And say, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils,
98And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they be present with me."
99[For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, "My Lord, send me back
100That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind." No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected.
101So when the Horn is blown, no relationship will there be among them that Day, nor will they ask about one another.
102And those whose scales are heavy [with good deeds] - it is they who are the successful.
103But those whose scales are light - those are the ones who have lost their souls, [being] in Hell, abiding eternally.
104The Fire will sear their faces, and they therein will have taut smiles.
105[It will be said]. "Were not My verses recited to you and you used to deny them?"
106They will say, "Our Lord, our wretchedness overcame us, and we were a people astray.
107Our Lord, remove us from it, and if we were to return [to evil], we would indeed be wrongdoers."
108He will say, "Remain despised therein and do not speak to Me.
109Indeed, there was a party of My servants who said, 'Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You are the best of the merciful.'
110But you took them in mockery to the point that they made you forget My remembrance, and you used to laugh at them.
111Indeed, I have rewarded them this Day for their patient endurance - that they are the attainers [of success]."
112[Allah] will say, "How long did you remain on earth in number of years?"
113They will say, "We remained a day or part of a day; ask those who enumerate."
114He will say, "You stayed not but a little - if only you had known.
115Then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?"
116So exalted is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth; there is no deity except Him, Lord of the Noble Throne.
117And whoever invokes besides Allah another deity for which he has no proof - then his account is only with his Lord. Indeed, the disbelievers will not succeed.
118And, [O Muhammad], say, "My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful."
