1By those [angels] lined up in rows
2And those who drive [the clouds]
3And those who recite the message,
4Indeed, your God is One,
5Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises.
6Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars
7And as protection against every rebellious devil
8[So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side,
9Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment,
10Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].
11Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay.
12But you wonder, while they mock,
13And when they are reminded, they remember not.
14And when they see a sign, they ridicule
15And say, "This is not but obvious magic.
16When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?
17And our forefathers [as well]?"
18Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible."
19It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing.
20They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense."
21[They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny."
22[The angels will be ordered], "Gather those who committed wrong, their kinds, and what they used to worship
23Other than Allah, and guide them to the path of Hellfire
24And stop them; indeed, they are to be questioned."
25[They will be asked], "What is [wrong] with you? Why do you not help each other?"
26But they, that Day, are in surrender.
27And they will approach one another blaming each other.
28They will say, "Indeed, you used to come at us from the right."
29The oppressors will say, "Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers,
30And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people.
31So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment].
32And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators."
33So indeed they, that Day, will be sharing in the punishment.
34Indeed, that is how We deal with the criminals.
35Indeed they, when it was said to them, "There is no deity but Allah," were arrogant
36And were saying, "Are we to leave our gods for a mad poet?"
37Rather, the Prophet has come with the truth and confirmed the [previous] messengers.
38Indeed, you [disbelievers] will be tasters of the painful punishment,
39And you will not be recompensed except for what you used to do -
40But not the chosen servants of Allah.
41Those will have a provision determined -
42Fruits; and they will be honored
43In gardens of pleasure
44On thrones facing one another.
45There will be circulated among them a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring,
46White and delicious to the drinkers;
47No bad effect is there in it, nor from it will they be intoxicated.
48And with them will be women limiting [their] glances, with large, [beautiful] eyes,
49As if they were [delicate] eggs, well-protected.
50And they will approach one another, inquiring of each other.
51A speaker among them will say, "Indeed, I had a companion [on earth]
52Who would say, 'Are you indeed of those who believe
53That when we have died and become dust and bones, we will indeed be recompensed?'"
54He will say, "Would you [care to] look?"
55And he will look and see him in the midst of the Hellfire.
56He will say, "By Allah, you almost ruined me.
57If not for the favor of my Lord, I would have been of those brought in [to Hell].
58Then, are we not to die
59Except for our first death, and we will not be punished?"
60Indeed, this is the great attainment.
61For the like of this let the workers [on earth] work.
62Is Paradise a better accommodation or the tree of zaqqum?
63Indeed, We have made it a torment for the wrongdoers.
64Indeed, it is a tree issuing from the bottom of the Hellfire,
65Its emerging fruit as if it was heads of the devils.
66And indeed, they will eat from it and fill with it their bellies.
67Then indeed, they will have after it a mixture of scalding water.
68Then indeed, their return will be to the Hellfire.
69Indeed they found their fathers astray.
70So they hastened [to follow] in their footsteps.
71And there had already strayed before them most of the former peoples,
72And We had already sent among them warners.
73Then look how was the end of those who were warned -
74But not the chosen servants of Allah.
75And Noah had certainly called Us, and [We are] the best of responders.
76And We saved him and his family from the great affliction.
77And We made his descendants those remaining [on the earth]
78And left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:
79"Peace upon Noah among the worlds."
80Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
81Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
82Then We drowned the disbelievers.
83And indeed, among his kind was Abraham,
84When he came to his Lord with a sound heart
85[And] when he said to his father and his people, "What do you worship?
86Is it falsehood [as] gods other than Allah you desire?
87Then what is your thought about the Lord of the worlds?"
88And he cast a look at the stars
89And said, "Indeed, I am [about to be] ill."
90So they turned away from him, departing.
91Then he turned to their gods and said, "Do you not eat?
92What is [wrong] with you that you do not speak?"
93And he turned upon them a blow with [his] right hand.
94Then the people came toward him, hastening.
95He said, "Do you worship that which you [yourselves] carve,
96While Allah created you and that which you do?"
97They said, "Construct for him a furnace and throw him into the burning fire."
98And they intended for him a plan, but We made them the most debased.
99And [then] he said, "Indeed, I will go to [where I am ordered by] my Lord; He will guide me.
100My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous."
101So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.
102And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, "O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think." He said, "O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast."
103And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead,
104We called to him, "O Abraham,
105You have fulfilled the vision." Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
106Indeed, this was the clear trial.
107And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice,
108And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:
109"Peace upon Abraham."
110Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
111Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
112And We gave him good tidings of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous.
113And We blessed him and Isaac. But among their descendants is the doer of good and the clearly unjust to himself.
114And We did certainly confer favor upon Moses and Aaron.
115And We saved them and their people from the great affliction,
116And We supported them so it was they who overcame.
117And We gave them the explicit Scripture,
118And We guided them on the straight path.
119And We left for them [favorable mention] among later generations:
120"Peace upon Moses and Aaron."
121Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
122Indeed, they were of Our believing servants.
123And indeed, Elias was from among the messengers,
124When he said to his people, "Will you not fear Allah?
125Do you call upon Ba'l and leave the best of creators -
126Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers?"
127And they denied him, so indeed, they will be brought [for punishment],
128Except the chosen servants of Allah.
129And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:
130"Peace upon Elias."
131Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
132Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.
133And indeed, Lot was among the messengers.
134[So mention] when We saved him and his family, all,
135Except his wife among those who remained [with the evildoers].
136Then We destroyed the others.
137And indeed, you pass by them in the morning
138And at night. Then will you not use reason?
139And indeed, Jonah was among the messengers.
140[Mention] when he ran away to the laden ship.
141And he drew lots and was among the losers.
142Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy.
143And had he not been of those who exalt Allah,
144He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.
145But We threw him onto the open shore while he was ill.
146And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine.
147And We sent him to [his people of] a hundred thousand or more.
148And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment [of life] for a time.
149So inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?
150Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses?"
151Unquestionably, it is out of their [invented] falsehood that they say,
152" Allah has begotten," and indeed, they are liars.
153Has He chosen daughters over sons?
154What is [wrong] with you? How do you make judgement?
155Then will you not be reminded?
156Or do you have a clear authority?
157Then produce your scripture, if you should be truthful.
158And they have claimed between Him and the jinn a lineage, but the jinn have already known that they [who made such claims] will be brought to [punishment].
159Exalted is Allah above what they describe,
160Except the chosen servants of Allah [who do not share in that sin].
161So indeed, you [disbelievers] and whatever you worship,
162You cannot tempt [anyone] away from Him
163Except he who is to [enter and] burn in the Hellfire.
164[The angels say], "There is not among us any except that he has a known position.
165And indeed, we are those who line up [for prayer].
166And indeed, we are those who exalt Allah."
167And indeed, the disbelievers used to say,
168"If we had a message from [those of] the former peoples,
169We would have been the chosen servants of Allah."
170But they disbelieved in it, so they are going to know.
171And Our word has already preceded for Our servants, the messengers,
172[That] indeed, they would be those given victory
173And [that] indeed, Our soldiers will be those who overcome.
174So, [O Muhammad], leave them for a time.
175And see [what will befall] them, for they are going to see.
176Then for Our punishment are they impatient?
177But when it descends in their territory, then evil is the morning of those who were warned.
178And leave them for a time.
179And see, for they are going to see.
180Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of might, above what they describe.
181And peace upon the messengers.
182And praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
