1Successful indeed are the believers
2Who are humble in their prayers,
3And who shun vain conversation,
4And who are payers of the poor-due;
5And who guard their modesty -
6Save from their wives or the (slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy,
7But whoso craveth beyond that, such are transgressors -
8And who are shepherds of their pledge and their covenant,
9And who pay heed to their prayers.
10These are the heirs
11Who will inherit paradise. There they will abide.
12Verily We created man from a product of wet earth;
13Then placed him as a drop (of seed) in a safe lodging;
14Then fashioned We the drop a clot, then fashioned We the clot a little lump, then fashioned We the little lump bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators!
15Then lo! after that ye surely die.
16Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection ye are raised (again).
17And We have created above you seven paths, and We are never unmindful of creation.
18And we send down from the sky water in measure, and We give it lodging in the earth, and lo! We are Able to withdraw it.
19Then We produce for you therewith gardens of date-palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you and whereof ye eat;
20And a tree that springeth forth from Mount Sinai that groweth oil and relish for the eaters.
21And lo! in the cattle there is verily a lesson for you. We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies, and many uses have ye in them, and of them do ye eat;
22And on them and on the ship ye are carried.
23And We verily sent Noah unto his folk, and he said: O my people! Serve Allah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?
24But the chieftains of his folk, who disbelieved, said: This is only a mortal like you who would make himself superior to you. Had Allah willed, He surely could have sent down angels. We heard not of this in the case of our fathers of old.
25He is only a man in whom is a madness, so watch him for a while.
26He said: My Lord! Help me because they deny me.
27Then We inspired in him, saying: Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration. Then, when Our command cometh and the oven gusheth water, introduce therein of every (kind) two spouses, and thy household save him thereof against whom the Word hath already gone forth. And plead not with Me on behalf of those who have done wrong. Lo! they will be drowned.
28And when thou art on board the ship, thou and whoso is with thee, then say: Praise be to Allah Who hath saved us from the wrongdoing folk!
29And say: My Lord! Cause me to land at a blessed landing-place, for Thou art Best of all who bring to land.
30Lo! herein verily are portents, for lo! We are ever putting (mankind) to the test.
31Then, after them, We brought forth another generation;
32And we sent among them a messenger of their own, saying: Serve Allah, Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?
33And the chieftains of his folk, who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the Hereafter, and whom We had made soft in the life of the world, said: This is only a mortal like you, who eateth of that whereof ye eat and drinketh of that ye drink.
34If ye were to obey a mortal like yourselves, then, lo! ye surely would be losers.
35Doth he promise you that you, when ye are dead and have become dust and bones, will (again) be brought forth?
36Begone, begone, with that which ye are promised!
37There is naught but our life of the world; we die and we live, and we shall not be raised (again).
38He is only a man who hath invented a lie about Allah. We are not going to put faith in him.
39He said: My Lord! Help me because they deny me.
40He said: In a little while they surely will become repentant.
41So the (Awful) Cry overtook them rightfully, and We made them like as wreckage (that a torrent hurleth). A far removal for wrongdoing folk!
42Then after them We brought forth other generations.
43No nation can outstrip its term, nor yet postpone it.
44Then We sent our messengers one after another. Whenever its messenger came unto a nation they denied him; so We caused them to follow one another (to disaster) and We made them bywords. A far removal for folk who believe not!
45Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our tokens and a clear warrant
46Unto Pharaoh and his chiefs, but they scorned (them) and they were despotic folk.
47And they said: Shall we put faith in two mortals like ourselves, and whose folk are servile unto us?
48So they denied them, and became of those who were destroyed.
49And We verily gave Moses the Scripture, that haply they might go aright.
50And We made the son of Mary and his mother a portent, and We gave them refuge on a height, a place of flocks and watersprings.
51O ye messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right. Lo! I am Aware of what ye do.
52And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me.
53But they (mankind) have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its tenets.
54So leave them in their error till a time.
55Think they that in the wealth and sons wherewith We provide them
56We hasten unto them with good things? Nay, but they perceive not.
57Lo! those who go in awe for fear of their Lord.
58And those who believe in the revelations of their Lord,
59And those who ascribe not partners unto their Lord,
60And those who give that which they give with hearts afraid because they are about to return unto their Lord,
61These race for the good things, and they shall win them in the race.
62And we task not any soul beyond its scope, and with Us is a Record which speaketh the truth, and they will not be wronged.
63Nay, but their hearts are in ignorance of this (Qur'an), and they have other works, besides, which they are doing;
64Till when We grasp their luxurious ones with the punishment, behold! they supplicate.
65Supplicate not this day! Assuredly ye will not be helped by Us.
66My revelations were recited unto you, but ye used to turn back on your heels,
67In scorn thereof. Nightly did ye rave together.
68Have they not pondered the Word, or hath that come unto them which came not unto their fathers of old?
69Or know they not their messenger, and so reject him?
70Or say they: There is a madness in him? Nay, but he bringeth them the Truth; and most of them are haters of the Truth.
71And if the Truth had followed their desires, verily the heavens and the earth and whosoever is therein had been corrupted. Nay, We have brought them their Reminder, but from their Reminder they now turn away.
72Or dost thou ask of them (O Muhammad) any tribute? But the bounty of thy Lord is better, for He is Best of all who make provision.
73And lo! thou summonest them indeed unto a straight path.
74And lo! those who believe not in the Hereafter are indeed astray from the path.
75Though We had mercy on them and relieved them of the harm afflicting them, they still would wander blindly on in their contumacy.
76Already have We grasped them with punishment, but they humble not themselves unto their Lord, nor do they pray,
77Until, when We open for them the gate of extreme punishment, behold! they are aghast thereat.
78He it is Who hath created for you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye!
79And He it is Who hath sown you broadcast in the earth, and unto Him ye will be gathered.
80And He it is Who giveth life and causeth death, and His is the difference of night and day. Have ye then no sense?
81Nay, but they say the like of that which said the men of old;
82They say: When we are dead and have become (mere) dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again?
83We were already promised this, we and our forefathers. Lo! this is naught but fables of the men of old.
84Say: Unto Whom (belongeth) the earth and whosoever is therein, if ye have knowledge?
85They will say: Unto Allah. Say: Will ye not then remember?
86Say: Who is Lord of the seven heavens, and Lord of the Tremendous Throne?
87They will say: Unto Allah (all that belongeth). Say: Will ye not then keep duty (unto Him)?
88Say: In Whose hand is the dominion over all things and He protecteth, while against Him there is no protection, if ye have knowledge?
89They will say: Unto Allah (all that belongeth). Say: How then are ye bewitched?
90Nay, but We have brought them the Truth, and lo! they are liars.
91Allah hath not chosen any son, nor is there any god along with Him; else would each god have assuredly championed that which he created, and some of them would assuredly have overcome others. Glorified be Allah above all that they allege.
92Knower of the Invisible and the Visible! and Exalted be He over all that they ascribe as partners (unto Him)!
93Say: My Lord! If Thou shouldst show me that which they are promised.
94My Lord! then set me not among the wrongdoing folk.
95And verily We are Able to show thee that which We have promised them.
96Repel evil with that which is better. We are Best Aware of that which they allege.
97And say: My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones,
98And I seek refuge in Thee, my Lord, lest they be present with me,
99Until, when death cometh unto one of them, he saith: My Lord! Send me back,
100That I may do right in that which I have left behind! But nay! It is but a word that he speaketh; and behind them is a barrier until the day when they are raised.
101And when the trumpet is blown there will be no kinship among them that day, nor will they ask of one another.
102Then those whose scales are heavy, they are the successful.
103And those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls, in hell abiding.
104The fire burneth their faces, and they are glum therein.
105(It will be said): Were not My revelations recited unto you, and then ye used to deny them?
106They will say: Our Lord! Our evil fortune conquered us, and we were erring folk.
107Our Lord! Oh, bring us forth from hence! If we return (to evil) then indeed we shall be wrong-doers.
108He saith: Begone therein, and speak not unto Me.
109Lo! there was a party of My slaves who said: Our Lord! We believe, therefor forgive us and have mercy on us for Thou art Best of all who show mercy;
110But ye chose them for a laughing-stock until they caused you to forget remembrance of Me, while ye laughed at them.
111Lo! I have rewarded them this day forasmuch as they were steadfast in that they, even they, are the triumphant.
112He will say: How long tarried ye in the earth, counting by years?
113They will say: We tarried by a day or part of a day. Ask of those who keep count!
114He will say: Ye tarried but a little if ye only knew.
115Deemed ye then that We had created you for naught, and that ye would not be returned unto Us?
116Now Allah be Exalted, the True King! There is no Allah save Him, the Lord of the Throne of Grace.
117He who crieth unto any other god along with Allah hath no proof thereof. His reckoning is only with his Lord. Lo! disbelievers will not be successful.
118And (O Muhammad) say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.
