1By those who set the ranks in battle order
2And those who drive away (the wicked) with reproof
3And those who read (the Word) for a reminder,
4Lo! thy Lord is surely One;
5Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them, and Lord of the sun's risings.
6Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament, the planets;
7With security from every froward devil.
8They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side,
9Outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment;
10Save him who snatcheth a fragment, and there pursueth him a piercing flame.
11Then ask them (O Muhammad): Are they stronger as a creation, or those (others) whom we have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay.
12Nay, but thou dost marvel when they mock
13And heed not when they are reminded,
14And seek to scoff when they behold a portent.
15And they say: Lo! this is mere magic;
16When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised (again)?
17And our forefathers?
18Say (O Muhammad): Ye, in truth; and ye will be brought low.
19There is but one Shout, and lo! they behold,
20And say: Ah, woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment.
21This is the Day of Separation, which ye used to deny.
22(And it is said unto the angels): Assemble those who did wrong, together with their wives and what they used to worship
23Instead of Allah, and lead them to the path to hell;
24And stop them, for they must be questioned.
25What aileth you that ye help not one another?
26Nay, but this day they make full submission.
27And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning.
28They say: Lo! ye used to come unto us, imposing, (swearing that ye spoke the truth).
29They answer: Nay, but ye (yourselves) were not believers.
30We had no power over you, but ye were wayward folk.
31Now the Word of our Lord hath been fulfilled concerning us. Lo! we are about to taste (the doom).
32Thus we misled you. Lo! we were (ourselves) astray.
33Then lo! this day they (both) are sharers in the doom.
34Lo! thus deal We with the guilty.
35For when it was said unto them, There is no Allah save Allah, they were scornful
36And said: Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet?
37Nay, but he brought the Truth, and he confirmed those sent (before him).
38Lo! (now) verily ye taste the painful doom -
39Ye are requited naught save what ye did -
40Save single-minded slaves of Allah;
41For them there is a known provision,
42Fruits. And they will be honoured
43In the Gardens of delight,
44On couches facing one another;
45A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them,
46White, delicious to the drinkers,
47Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby.
48And with them are those of modest gaze, with lovely eyes,
49(Pure) as they were hidden eggs (of the ostrich).
50And some of them draw near unto others, mutually questioning.
51A speaker of them saith: Lo! I had a comrade
52Who used to say: Art thou in truth of those who put faith (in his words)?
53Can we, when we are dead and have become mere dust and bones - can we (then) verily be brought to book?
54He saith: Will ye look?
55Then looketh he and seeth him in the depth of hell.
56He saith: By Allah, thou verily didst all but cause my ruin,
57And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I too had been of those haled forth (to doom).
58Are we then not to die
59Saving our former death, and are we not to be punished?
60Lo! this is the supreme triumph.
61For the like of this, then, let the workers work.
62Is this better as a welcome, or the tree of Zaqqum?
63Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong-doers.
64Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell.
65Its crop is as it were the heads of devils
66And lo! they verily must eat thereof, and fill (their) bellies therewith.
67And afterward, lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling water
68And afterward, lo! their return is surely unto hell.
69They indeed found their fathers astray,
70But they make haste (to follow) in their footsteps.
71And verily most of the men of old went astray before them,
72And verily We sent among them warners.
73Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned,
74Save single-minded slaves of Allah.
75And Noah verily prayed unto Us, and gracious was the Hearer of his prayer
76And We saved him and his household from the great distress,
77And made his seed the survivors,
78And left for him among the later folk (the salutation):
79Peace be unto Noah among the peoples!
80Lo! thus do We reward the good.
81Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves.
82Then We did drown the others.
83And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraham
84When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart;
85When he said unto his father and his folk: What is it that ye worship?
86Is it a falsehood - gods beside Allah - that ye desire?
87What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds?
88And he glanced a glance at the stars
89Then said: Lo! I feel sick!
90And they turned their backs and went away from him.
91Then turned he to their gods and said: Will ye not eat?
92What aileth you that ye speak not?
93Then he attacked them, striking with his right hand.
94And (his people) came toward him, hastening.
95He said: Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carve
96When Allah hath created you and what ye make?
97They said: Build for him a building and fling him in the red-hotfire.
98And they designed a snare for him, but We made them the undermost.
99And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me.
100My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous.
101So We gave him tidings of a gentle son.
102And when (his son) was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee. So look, what thinkest thou? He said: O my father! Do that which thou art commanded. Allah willing, thou shalt find me of the steadfast.
103Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face,
104We called unto him: O Abraham!
105Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good.
106Lo! that verily was a clear test.
107Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim.
108And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation):
109Peace be unto Abraham!
110Thus do We reward the good.
111Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves.
112And we gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac, a prophet of the righteous.
113And We blessed him and Isaac. And of their seed are some who do good, and some who plainly wrong themselves.
114And We verily gave grace unto Moses and Aaron,
115And saved them and their people from the great distress,
116And helped them so that they became the victors.
117And We gave them the clear Scripture
118And showed them the right path.
119And We left for them among the later folk (the salutation):
120Peace be unto Moses and Aaron!
121Lo! thus do We reward the good.
122Lo! they are two of Our believing slaves.
123And lo! Elias was of those sent (to warn),
124When he said unto his folk: Will ye not ward off (evil)?
125Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the Best of creators,
126Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers?
127But they denied him, so they surely will be haled forth (to the doom)
128Save single-minded slaves of Allah.
129And we left for him among the later folk (the salutation):
130Peace be unto Elias!
131Lo! thus do We reward the good.
132Lo! he is one of our believing slaves.
133And lo! Lot verily was of those sent (to warn).
134When We saved him and his household, every one,
135Save an old woman among those who stayed behind;
136Then We destroyed the others.
137And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning
138And at night-time; have ye then no sense?
139And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent (to warn)
140When he fled unto the laden ship,
141And then drew lots and was of those rejected;
142And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy;
143And had he not been one of those who glorify (Allah)
144He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised;
145Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick;
146And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him;
147And We sent him to a hundred thousand (folk) or more
148And they believed, therefor We gave them comfort for a while.
149Now ask them (O Muhammad): Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons?
150Or created We the angels females while they were present?
151Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say:
152Allah hath begotten. Allah! verily they tell a lie.
153(And again of their falsehood): He hath preferred daughters to sons.
154What aileth you? How judge ye?
155Will ye not then reflect?
156Or have ye a clear warrant?
157Then produce your writ, if ye are truthful.
158And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn, whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before (Him).
159Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute (unto Him),
160Save single-minded slaves of Allah.
161Lo! verily, ye and that which ye worship,
162Ye cannot excite (anyone) against Him.
163Save him who is to burn in hell.
164There is not one of us but hath his known position.
165Lo! we, even we are they who set the ranks,
166Lo! we, even we are they who hymn His praise
167And indeed they used to say:
168If we had but a reminder from the men of old
169We would be single-minded slaves of Allah.
170Yet (now that it is come) they disbelieve therein; but they will come to know.
171And verily Our word went forth of old unto Our bondmen sent (to warn)
172That they verily would be helped,
173And that Our host, they verily would be the victors.
174So withdraw from them (O Muhammad) awhile,
175And watch, for they will (soon) see.
176Would they hasten on Our doom?
177But when it cometh home to them, then it will be a hapless morn for those who have been warned.
178Withdraw from them awhile
179And watch, for they will (soon) see.
180Glorified be thy Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they attribute (unto Him)
181And peace be unto those sent (to warn).
182And praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds!
