1 1 The Opening 1 In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
2 1 The Opening 2 [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds -
3 1 The Opening 3 The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,
4 1 The Opening 4 Sovereign of the Day of Recompense.
5 1 The Opening 5 It is You we worship and You we ask for help.
6 1 The Opening 6 Guide us to the straight path -
7 1 The Opening 7 The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
8 2 The Cow 1 Alif, Lam, Meem.
9 2 The Cow 2 This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah -
10 2 The Cow 3 Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
11 2 The Cow 4 And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].
12 2 The Cow 5 Those are upon [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful.
13 2 The Cow 6 Indeed, those who disbelieve - it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them - they will not believe.
14 2 The Cow 7 Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.
15 2 The Cow 8 And of the people are some who say, "We believe in Allah and the Last Day," but they are not believers.
16 2 The Cow 9 They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.
17 2 The Cow 10 In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease; and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie.
18 2 The Cow 11 And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers."
19 2 The Cow 12 Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not.
20 2 The Cow 13 And when it is said to them, "Believe as the people have believed," they say, "Should we believe as the foolish have believed?" Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.
21 2 The Cow 14 And when they meet those who believe, they say, "We believe"; but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say, "Indeed, we are with you; we were only mockers."
22 2 The Cow 15 [But] Allah mocks them and prolongs them in their transgression [while] they wander blindly.
23 2 The Cow 16 Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided.
24 2 The Cow 17 Their example is that of one who kindled a fire, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness [so] they could not see.
25 2 The Cow 18 Deaf, dumb and blind - so they will not return [to the right path].
26 2 The Cow 19 Or [it is] like a rainstorm from the sky within which is darkness, thunder and lightning. They put their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps in dread of death. But Allah is encompassing of the disbelievers.
27 2 The Cow 20 The lightning almost snatches away their sight. Every time it lights [the way] for them, they walk therein; but when darkness comes over them, they stand [still]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken away their hearing and their sight. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
28 2 The Cow 21 O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous -
29 2 The Cow 22 [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him].
30 2 The Cow 23 And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful.
31 2 The Cow 24 But if you do not - and you will never be able to - then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers.
32 2 The Cow 25 And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, "This is what we were provided with before." And it is given to them in likeness. And they will have therein purified spouses, and they will abide therein eternally.
33 2 The Cow 26 Indeed, Allah is not timid to present an example - that of a mosquito or what is smaller than it. And those who have believed know that it is the truth from their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, they say, "What did Allah intend by this as an example?" He misleads many thereby and guides many thereby. And He misleads not except the defiantly disobedient,
34 2 The Cow 27 Who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and cause corruption on earth. It is those who are the losers.
35 2 The Cow 28 How can you disbelieve in Allah when you were lifeless and He brought you to life; then He will cause you to die, then He will bring you [back] to life, and then to Him you will be returned.
36 2 The Cow 29 It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. Then He directed Himself to the heaven, [His being above all creation], and made them seven heavens, and He is Knowing of all things.
37 2 The Cow 30 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority." They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know."
38 2 The Cow 31 And He taught Adam the names - all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, "Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful."
39 2 The Cow 32 They said, "Exalted are You; we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Indeed, it is You who is the Knowing, the Wise."
40 2 The Cow 33 He said, "O Adam, inform them of their names." And when he had informed them of their names, He said, "Did I not tell you that I know the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth? And I know what you reveal and what you have concealed."
41 2 The Cow 34 And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate before Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He refused and was arrogant and became of the disbelievers.
42 2 The Cow 35 And We said, "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat therefrom in [ease and] abundance from wherever you will. But do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers."
43 2 The Cow 36 But Satan caused them to slip out of it and removed them from that [condition] in which they had been. And We said, "Go down, [all of you], as enemies to one another, and you will have upon the earth a place of settlement and provision for a time."
44 2 The Cow 37 Then Adam received from his Lord [some] words, and He accepted his repentance. Indeed, it is He who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
45 2 The Cow 38 We said, "Go down from it, all of you. And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
46 2 The Cow 39 And those who disbelieve and deny Our signs - those will be companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally."
47 2 The Cow 40 O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and fulfill My covenant [upon you] that I will fulfill your covenant [from Me], and be afraid of [only] Me.
48 2 The Cow 41 And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and fear [only] Me.
49 2 The Cow 42 And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it].
50 2 The Cow 43 And establish prayer and give zakah and bow with those who bow [in worship and obedience].
51 2 The Cow 44 Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture? Then will you not reason?
52 2 The Cow 45 And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah]
53 2 The Cow 46 Who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him.
54 2 The Cow 47 O Children of Israel, remember My favor that I have bestowed upon you and that I preferred you over the worlds.
55 2 The Cow 48 And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided.
56 2 The Cow 49 And [recall] when We saved your forefathers from the people of Pharaoh, who afflicted you with the worst torment, slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
57 2 The Cow 50 And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on.
58 2 The Cow 51 And [recall] when We made an appointment with Moses for forty nights. Then you took [for worship] the calf after him, while you were wrongdoers.
59 2 The Cow 52 Then We forgave you after that so perhaps you would be grateful.
60 2 The Cow 53 And [recall] when We gave Moses the Scripture and criterion that perhaps you would be guided.
61 2 The Cow 54 And [recall] when Moses said to his people, "O my people, indeed you have wronged yourselves by your taking of the calf [for worship]. So repent to your Creator and kill yourselves. That is best for [all of] you in the sight of your Creator." Then He accepted your repentance; indeed, He is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
62 2 The Cow 55 And [recall] when you said, "O Moses, we will never believe you until we see Allah outright"; so the thunderbolt took you while you were looking on.
63 2 The Cow 56 Then We revived you after your death that perhaps you would be grateful.
64 2 The Cow 57 And We shaded you with clouds and sent down to you manna and quails, [saying], "Eat from the good things with which We have provided you." And they wronged Us not - but they were [only] wronging themselves.
65 2 The Cow 58 And [recall] when We said, "Enter this city and eat from it wherever you will in [ease and] abundance, and enter the gate bowing humbly and say, 'Relieve us of our burdens.' We will [then] forgive your sins for you, and We will increase the doers of good [in goodness and reward]."
66 2 The Cow 59 But those who wronged changed [those words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them, so We sent down upon those who wronged a punishment from the sky because they were defiantly disobeying.
67 2 The Cow 60 And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, "Strike with your staff the stone." And there gushed forth from it twelve springs, and every people knew its watering place. "Eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption."
68 2 The Cow 61 And [recall] when you said, "O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions." [Moses] said, "Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked." And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing.
69 2 The Cow 62 Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] - those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
70 2 The Cow 63 And [recall] when We took your covenant, [O Children of Israel, to abide by the Torah] and We raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that perhaps you may become righteous."
71 2 The Cow 64 Then you turned away after that. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have been among the losers.
72 2 The Cow 65 And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the sabbath, and We said to them, "Be apes, despised."
73 2 The Cow 66 And We made it a deterrent punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded [them] and a lesson for those who fear Allah.
74 2 The Cow 67 And [recall] when Moses said to his people, "Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow." They said, "Do you take us in ridicule?" He said, "I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant."
75 2 The Cow 68 They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is." [Moses] said, "[Allah] says, 'It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,' so do what you are commanded."
76 2 The Cow 69 They said, "Call upon your Lord to show us what is her color." He said, "He says, 'It is a yellow cow, bright in color - pleasing to the observers.' "
77 2 The Cow 70 They said, "Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is. Indeed, [all] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if Allah wills, will be guided."
78 2 The Cow 71 He said, "He says, 'It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.' " They said, "Now you have come with the truth." So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.
79 2 The Cow 72 And [recall] when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring out that which you were concealing.
80 2 The Cow 73 So, We said, "Strike the slain man with part of it." Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.
81 2 The Cow 74 Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
82 2 The Cow 75 Do you covet [the hope, O believers], that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah and then distort the Torah after they had understood it while they were knowing?
83 2 The Cow 76 And when they meet those who believe, they say, "We have believed"; but when they are alone with one another, they say, "Do you talk to them about what Allah has revealed to you so they can argue with you about it before your Lord?" Then will you not reason?
84 2 The Cow 77 But do they not know that Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare?
85 2 The Cow 78 And among them are unlettered ones who do not know the Scripture except in wishful thinking, but they are only assuming.
86 2 The Cow 79 So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from Allah," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.
87 2 The Cow 80 And they say, "Never will the Fire touch us, except for a few days." Say, "Have you taken a covenant with Allah? For Allah will never break His covenant. Or do you say about Allah that which you do not know?"
88 2 The Cow 81 Yes, whoever earns evil and his sin has encompassed him - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.
89 2 The Cow 82 But they who believe and do righteous deeds - those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.
90 2 The Cow 83 And [recall] when We took the covenant from the Children of Israel, [enjoining upon them], "Do not worship except Allah; and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, and the needy. And speak to people good [words] and establish prayer and give zakah." Then you turned away, except a few of you, and you were refusing.
91 2 The Cow 84 And [recall] when We took your covenant, [saying], "Do not shed each other's blood or evict one another from your homes." Then you acknowledged [this] while you were witnessing.
92 2 The Cow 85 Then, you are those [same ones who are] killing one another and evicting a party of your people from their homes, cooperating against them in sin and aggression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their eviction was forbidden to you. So do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part? Then what is the recompense for those who do that among you except disgrace in worldly life; and on the Day of Resurrection they will be sent back to the severest of punishment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
93 2 The Cow 86 Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world [in exchange] for the Hereafter, so the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be aided.
94 2 The Cow 87 And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.
95 2 The Cow 88 And they said, "Our hearts are wrapped." But, [in fact], Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so little is it that they believe.
96 2 The Cow 89 And when there came to them a Book from Allah confirming that which was with them - although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved - but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers.
97 2 The Cow 90 How wretched is that for which they sold themselves - that they would disbelieve in what Allah has revealed through [their] outrage that Allah would send down His favor upon whom He wills from among His servants. So they returned having [earned] wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers is a humiliating punishment.
98 2 The Cow 91 And when it is said to them, "Believe in what Allah has revealed," they say, "We believe [only] in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them. Say, "Then why did you kill the prophets of Allah before, if you are [indeed] believers?"
99 2 The Cow 92 And Moses had certainly brought you clear proofs. Then you took the calf [in worship] after that, while you were wrongdoers.
100 2 The Cow 93 And [recall] when We took your covenant and raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and listen." They said [instead], "We hear and disobey." And their hearts absorbed [the worship of] the calf because of their disbelief. Say, "How wretched is that which your faith enjoins upon you, if you should be believers."
101 2 The Cow 94 Say, [O Muhammad], "If the home of the Hereafter with Allah is for you alone and not the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.
102 2 The Cow 95 But they will never wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers.
103 2 The Cow 96 And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life - [even] more than those who associate others with Allah. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
104 2 The Cow 97 Say, "Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel - it is [none but] he who has brought the Qur'an down upon your heart, [O Muhammad], by permission of Allah, confirming that which was before it and as guidance and good tidings for the believers."
105 2 The Cow 98 Whoever is an enemy to Allah and His angels and His messengers and Gabriel and Michael - then indeed, Allah is an enemy to the disbelievers.
106 2 The Cow 99 And We have certainly revealed to you verses [which are] clear proofs, and no one would deny them except the defiantly disobedient.
107 2 The Cow 100 Is it not [true] that every time they took a covenant a party of them threw it away? But, [in fact], most of them do not believe.
108 2 The Cow 101 And when a messenger from Allah came to them confirming that which was with them, a party of those who had been given the Scripture threw the Scripture of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know [what it contained].
109 2 The Cow 102 And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, "We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic]." And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah. And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew.
110 2 The Cow 103 And if they had believed and feared Allah, then the reward from Allah would have been [far] better, if they only knew.
111 2 The Cow 104 O you who have believed, say not [to Allah 's Messenger], "Ra'ina" but say, "Unthurna" and listen. And for the disbelievers is a painful punishment.
112 2 The Cow 105 Neither those who disbelieve from the People of the Scripture nor the polytheists wish that any good should be sent down to you from your Lord. But Allah selects for His mercy whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty.
113 2 The Cow 106 We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?
114 2 The Cow 107 Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and [that] you have not besides Allah any protector or any helper?
115 2 The Cow 108 Or do you intend to ask your Messenger as Moses was asked before? And whoever exchanges faith for disbelief has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way.
116 2 The Cow 109 Many of the People of the Scripture wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed, out of envy from themselves [even] after the truth has become clear to them. So pardon and overlook until Allah delivers His command. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
117 2 The Cow 110 And establish prayer and give zakah, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves - you will find it with Allah. Indeed, Allah of what you do, is Seeing.
118 2 The Cow 111 And they say, "None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian." That is [merely] their wishful thinking, Say, "Produce your proof, if you should be truthful."
119 2 The Cow 112 Yes [on the contrary], whoever submits his face in Islam to Allah while being a doer of good will have his reward with his Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
120 2 The Cow 113 The Jews say "The Christians have nothing [true] to stand on," and the Christians say, "The Jews have nothing to stand on," although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus the polytheists speak the same as their words. But Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.
121 2 The Cow 114 And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment.
122 2 The Cow 115 And to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah. Indeed, Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
123 2 The Cow 116 They say, "Allah has taken a son." Exalted is He! Rather, to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him,
124 2 The Cow 117 Originator of the heavens and the earth. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.
125 2 The Cow 118 Those who do not know say, "Why does Allah not speak to us or there come to us a sign?" Thus spoke those before them like their words. Their hearts resemble each other. We have shown clearly the signs to a people who are certain [in faith].
126 2 The Cow 119 Indeed, We have sent you, [O Muhammad], with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner, and you will not be asked about the companions of Hellfire.
127 2 The Cow 120 And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, "Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance." If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.
128 2 The Cow 121 Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital. They [are the ones who] believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it - it is they who are the losers.
129 2 The Cow 122 O Children of Israel, remember My favor which I have bestowed upon you and that I preferred you over the worlds.
130 2 The Cow 123 And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, and no compensation will be accepted from it, nor will any intercession benefit it, nor will they be aided.
131 2 The Cow 124 And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [Allah] said, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people." [Abraham] said, "And of my descendants?" [Allah] said, "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers."
132 2 The Cow 125 And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], "Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer]."
133 2 The Cow 126 And [mention] when Abraham said, "My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day." [Allah] said. "And whoever disbelieves - I will grant him enjoyment for a little; then I will force him to the punishment of the Fire, and wretched is the destination."
134 2 The Cow 127 And [mention] when Abraham was raising the foundations of the House and [with him] Ishmael, [saying], "Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing.
135 2 The Cow 128 Our Lord, and make us Muslims [in submission] to You and from our descendants a Muslim nation [in submission] to You. And show us our rites and accept our repentance. Indeed, You are the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
136 2 The Cow 129 Our Lord, and send among them a messenger from themselves who will recite to them Your verses and teach them the Book and wisdom and purify them. Indeed, You are the Exalted in Might, the Wise."
137 2 The Cow 130 And who would be averse to the religion of Abraham except one who makes a fool of himself. And We had chosen him in this world, and indeed he, in the Hereafter, will be among the righteous.
138 2 The Cow 131 When his Lord said to him, "Submit", he said "I have submitted [in Islam] to the Lord of the worlds."
139 2 The Cow 132 And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], "O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen for you this religion, so do not die except while you are Muslims."
140 2 The Cow 133 Or were you witnesses when death approached Jacob, when he said to his sons, "What will you worship after me?" They said, "We will worship your God and the God of your fathers, Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac - one God. And we are Muslims [in submission] to Him."
141 2 The Cow 134 That was a nation which has passed on. It will have [the consequence of] what it earned, and you will have what you have earned. And you will not be asked about what they used to do.
142 2 The Cow 135 They say, "Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided." Say, "Rather, [we follow] the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists."
143 2 The Cow 136 Say, [O believers], "We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him."
144 2 The Cow 137 So if they believe in the same as you believe in, then they have been [rightly] guided; but if they turn away, they are only in dissension, and Allah will be sufficient for you against them. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
145 2 The Cow 138 [And say, "Ours is] the religion of Allah. And who is better than Allah in [ordaining] religion? And we are worshippers of Him."
146 2 The Cow 139 Say, [O Muhammad], "Do you argue with us about Allah while He is our Lord and your Lord? For us are our deeds, and for you are your deeds. And we are sincere [in deed and intention] to Him."
147 2 The Cow 140 Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants were Jews or Christians? Say, "Are you more knowing or is Allah?" And who is more unjust than one who conceals a testimony he has from Allah? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
148 2 The Cow 141 That is a nation which has passed on. It will have [the consequence of] what it earned, and you will have what you have earned. And you will not be asked about what they used to do.
149 2 The Cow 142 The foolish among the people will say, "What has turned them away from their qiblah, which they used to face?" Say, "To Allah belongs the east and the west. He guides whom He wills to a straight path."
150 2 The Cow 143 And thus we have made you a just community that you will be witnesses over the people and the Messenger will be a witness over you. And We did not make the qiblah which you used to face except that We might make evident who would follow the Messenger from who would turn back on his heels. And indeed, it is difficult except for those whom Allah has guided. And never would Allah have caused you to lose your faith. Indeed Allah is, to the people, Kind and Merciful.
151 2 The Cow 144 We have certainly seen the turning of your face, [O Muhammad], toward the heaven, and We will surely turn you to a qiblah with which you will be pleased. So turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] are, turn your faces toward it [in prayer]. Indeed, those who have been given the Scripture well know that it is the truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do.
152 2 The Cow 145 And if you brought to those who were given the Scripture every sign, they would not follow your qiblah. Nor will you be a follower of their qiblah. Nor would they be followers of one another's qiblah. So if you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, indeed, you would then be among the wrongdoers.
153 2 The Cow 146 Those to whom We gave the Scripture know him as they know their own sons. But indeed, a party of them conceal the truth while they know [it].
154 2 The Cow 147 The truth is from your Lord, so never be among the doubters.
155 2 The Cow 148 For each [religious following] is a direction toward which it faces. So race to [all that is] good. Wherever you may be, Allah will bring you forth [for judgement] all together. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
156 2 The Cow 149 So from wherever you go out [for prayer, O Muhammad] turn your face toward al- Masjid al-Haram, and indeed, it is the truth from your Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
157 2 The Cow 150 And from wherever you go out [for prayer], turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] may be, turn your faces toward it in order that the people will not have any argument against you, except for those of them who commit wrong; so fear them not but fear Me. And [it is] so I may complete My favor upon you and that you may be guided.
158 2 The Cow 151 Just as We have sent among you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses and purifying you and teaching you the Book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know.
159 2 The Cow 152 So remember Me; I will remember you. And be grateful to Me and do not deny Me.
160 2 The Cow 153 O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.
161 2 The Cow 154 And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.
162 2 The Cow 155 And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient,
163 2 The Cow 156 Who, when disaster strikes them, say, "Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return."
164 2 The Cow 157 Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided.
165 2 The Cow 158 Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah. So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs 'umrah - there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good - then indeed, Allah is appreciative and Knowing.
166 2 The Cow 159 Indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture - those are cursed by Allah and cursed by those who curse,
167 2 The Cow 160 Except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those - I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
168 2 The Cow 161 Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers - upon them will be the curse of Allah and of the angels and the people, all together,
169 2 The Cow 162 Abiding eternally therein. The punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.
170 2 The Cow 163 And your god is one God. There is no deity [worthy of worship] except Him, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
171 2 The Cow 164 Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.
172 2 The Cow 165 And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah. But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah. And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment.
173 2 The Cow 166 [And they should consider that] when those who have been followed disassociate themselves from those who followed [them], and they [all] see the punishment, and cut off from them are the ties [of relationship],
174 2 The Cow 167 Those who followed will say, "If only we had another turn [at worldly life] so we could disassociate ourselves from them as they have disassociated themselves from us." Thus will Allah show them their deeds as regrets upon them. And they are never to emerge from the Fire.
175 2 The Cow 168 O mankind, eat from whatever is on earth [that is] lawful and good and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
176 2 The Cow 169 He only orders you to evil and immorality and to say about Allah what you do not know.
177 2 The Cow 170 And when it is said to them, "Follow what Allah has revealed," they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?
178 2 The Cow 171 The example of those who disbelieve is like that of one who shouts at what hears nothing but calls and cries cattle or sheep - deaf, dumb and blind, so they do not understand.
179 2 The Cow 172 O you who have believed, eat from the good things which We have provided for you and be grateful to Allah if it is [indeed] Him that you worship.
180 2 The Cow 173 He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
181 2 The Cow 174 Indeed, they who conceal what Allah has sent down of the Book and exchange it for a small price - those consume not into their bellies except the Fire. And Allah will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them. And they will have a painful punishment.
182 2 The Cow 175 Those are the ones who have exchanged guidance for error and forgiveness for punishment. How patient they are in pursuit of the Fire!
183 2 The Cow 176 That is [deserved by them] because Allah has sent down the Book in truth. And indeed, those who differ over the Book are in extreme dissension.
184 2 The Cow 177 Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
185 2 The Cow 178 O you who have believed, prescribed for you is legal retribution for those murdered - the free for the free, the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But whoever overlooks from his brother anything, then there should be a suitable follow-up and payment to him with good conduct. This is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy. But whoever transgresses after that will have a painful punishment.
186 2 The Cow 179 And there is for you in legal retribution [saving of] life, O you [people] of understanding, that you may become righteous.
187 2 The Cow 180 Prescribed for you when death approaches [any] one of you if he leaves wealth [is that he should make] a bequest for the parents and near relatives according to what is acceptable - a duty upon the righteous.
188 2 The Cow 181 Then whoever alters the bequest after he has heard it - the sin is only upon those who have altered it. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
189 2 The Cow 182 But if one fears from the bequeather [some] error or sin and corrects that which is between them, there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
190 2 The Cow 183 O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous -
191 2 The Cow 184 [Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] - then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess - it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.
192 2 The Cow 185 The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
193 2 The Cow 186 And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.
194 2 The Cow 187 It has been made permissible for you the night preceding fasting to go to your wives [for sexual relations]. They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He accepted your repentance and forgave you. So now, have relations with them and seek that which Allah has decreed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread [of night]. Then complete the fast until the sunset. And do not have relations with them as long as you are staying for worship in the mosques. These are the limits [set by] Allah, so do not approach them. Thus does Allah make clear His ordinances to the people that they may become righteous.
195 2 The Cow 188 And do not consume one another's wealth unjustly or send it [in bribery] to the rulers in order that [they might aid] you [to] consume a portion of the wealth of the people in sin, while you know [it is unlawful].
196 2 The Cow 189 They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the new moons. Say, "They are measurements of time for the people and for Hajj." And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back, but righteousness is [in] one who fears Allah. And enter houses from their doors. And fear Allah that you may succeed.
197 2 The Cow 190 Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.
198 2 The Cow 191 And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
199 2 The Cow 192 And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
200 2 The Cow 193 Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah. But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.
201 2 The Cow 194 [Fighting in] the sacred month is for [aggression committed in] the sacred month, and for [all] violations is legal retribution. So whoever has assaulted you, then assault him in the same way that he has assaulted you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who fear Him.
202 2 The Cow 195 And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
203 2 The Cow 196 And complete the Hajj and 'umrah for Allah. But if you are prevented, then [offer] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place of slaughter. And whoever among you is ill or has an ailment of the head [making shaving necessary must offer] a ransom of fasting [three days] or charity or sacrifice. And when you are secure, then whoever performs 'umrah [during the Hajj months] followed by Hajj [offers] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And whoever cannot find [or afford such an animal] - then a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned [home]. Those are ten complete [days]. This is for those whose family is not in the area of al-Masjid al-Haram. And fear Allah and know that Allah is severe in penalty.
204 2 The Cow 197 Hajj is [during] well-known months, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself therein [by entering the state of ihram], there is [to be for him] no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do - Allah knows it. And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah. And fear Me, O you of understanding.
205 2 The Cow 198 There is no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord [during Hajj]. But when you depart from 'Arafat, remember Allah at al- Mash'ar al-Haram. And remember Him, as He has guided you, for indeed, you were before that among those astray.
206 2 The Cow 199 Then depart from the place from where [all] the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
207 2 The Cow 200 And when you have completed your rites, remember Allah like your [previous] remembrance of your fathers or with [much] greater remembrance. And among the people is he who says, "Our Lord, give us in this world," and he will have in the Hereafter no share.
208 2 The Cow 201 But among them is he who says, "Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire."
209 2 The Cow 202 Those will have a share of what they have earned, and Allah is swift in account.
210 2 The Cow 203 And remember Allah during [specific] numbered days. Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days - there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays [until the third] - there is no sin upon him - for him who fears Allah. And fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered.
211 2 The Cow 204 And of the people is he whose speech pleases you in worldly life, and he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart, yet he is the fiercest of opponents.
212 2 The Cow 205 And when he goes away, he strives throughout the land to cause corruption therein and destroy crops and animals. And Allah does not like corruption.
213 2 The Cow 206 And when it is said to him, "Fear Allah," pride in the sin takes hold of him. Sufficient for him is Hellfire, and how wretched is the resting place.
214 2 The Cow 207 And of the people is he who sells himself, seeking means to the approval of Allah. And Allah is kind to [His] servants.
215 2 The Cow 208 O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
216 2 The Cow 209 But if you deviate after clear proofs have come to you, then know that Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
217 2 The Cow 210 Do they await but that Allah should come to them in covers of clouds and the angels [as well] and the matter is [then] decided? And to Allah [all] matters are returned.
218 2 The Cow 211 Ask the Children of Israel how many a sign of evidence We have given them. And whoever exchanges the favor of Allah [for disbelief] after it has come to him - then indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.
219 2 The Cow 212 Beautified for those who disbelieve is the life of this world, and they ridicule those who believe. But those who fear Allah are above them on the Day of Resurrection. And Allah gives provision to whom He wills without account.
220 2 The Cow 213 Mankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it - after the clear proofs came to them - out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.
221 2 The Cow 214 Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said, "When is the help of Allah?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.
222 2 The Cow 215 They ask you, [O Muhammad], what they should spend. Say, "Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it."
223 2 The Cow 216 Fighting has been enjoined upon you while it is hateful to you. But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.
224 2 The Cow 217 They ask you about the sacred month - about fighting therein. Say, "Fighting therein is great [sin], but averting [people] from the way of Allah and disbelief in Him and [preventing access to] al-Masjid al-Haram and the expulsion of its people therefrom are greater [evil] in the sight of Allah. And fitnah is greater than killing." And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your religion if they are able. And whoever of you reverts from his religion [to disbelief] and dies while he is a disbeliever - for those, their deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and those are the companions of the Fire, they will abide therein eternally.
225 2 The Cow 218 Indeed, those who have believed and those who have emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah - those expect the mercy of Allah. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
226 2 The Cow 219 They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, "In them is great sin and [yet, some] benefit for people. But their sin is greater than their benefit." And they ask you what they should spend. Say, "The excess [beyond needs]." Thus Allah makes clear to you the verses [of revelation] that you might give thought.
227 2 The Cow 220 To this world and the Hereafter. And they ask you about orphans. Say, "Improvement for them is best. And if you mix your affairs with theirs - they are your brothers. And Allah knows the corrupter from the amender. And if Allah had willed, He could have put you in difficulty. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
228 2 The Cow 221 And do not marry polytheistic women until they believe. And a believing slave woman is better than a polytheist, even though she might please you. And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. And a believing slave is better than a polytheist, even though he might please you. Those invite [you] to the Fire, but Allah invites to Paradise and to forgiveness, by His permission. And He makes clear His verses to the people that perhaps they may remember.
229 2 The Cow 222 And they ask you about menstruation. Say, "It is harm, so keep away from wives during menstruation. And do not approach them until they are pure. And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you. Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves."
230 2 The Cow 223 Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you, so come to your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth [righteousness] for yourselves. And fear Allah and know that you will meet Him. And give good tidings to the believers.
231 2 The Cow 224 And do not make [your oath by] Allah an excuse against being righteous and fearing Allah and making peace among people. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
232 2 The Cow 225 Allah does not impose blame upon you for what is unintentional in your oaths, but He imposes blame upon you for what your hearts have earned. And Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.
233 2 The Cow 226 For those who swear not to have sexual relations with their wives is a waiting time of four months, but if they return [to normal relations] - then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
234 2 The Cow 227 And if they decide on divorce - then indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
235 2 The Cow 228 Divorced women remain in waiting for three periods, and it is not lawful for them to conceal what Allah has created in their wombs if they believe in Allah and the Last Day. And their husbands have more right to take them back in this [period] if they want reconciliation. And due to the wives is similar to what is expected of them, according to what is reasonable. But the men have a degree over them [in responsibility and authority]. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
236 2 The Cow 229 Divorce is twice. Then, either keep [her] in an acceptable manner or release [her] with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them unless both fear that they will not be able to keep [within] the limits of Allah. But if you fear that they will not keep [within] the limits of Allah, then there is no blame upon either of them concerning that by which she ransoms herself. These are the limits of Allah, so do not transgress them. And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah - it is those who are the wrongdoers.
237 2 The Cow 230 And if he has divorced her [for the third time], then she is not lawful to him afterward until [after] she marries a husband other than him. And if the latter husband divorces her [or dies], there is no blame upon the woman and her former husband for returning to each other if they think that they can keep [within] the limits of Allah. These are the limits of Allah, which He makes clear to a people who know.
238 2 The Cow 231 And when you divorce women and they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or release them according to acceptable terms, and do not keep them, intending harm, to transgress [against them]. And whoever does that has certainly wronged himself. And do not take the verses of Allah in jest. And remember the favor of Allah upon you and what has been revealed to you of the Book and wisdom by which He instructs you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is Knowing of all things.
239 2 The Cow 232 And when you divorce women and they have fulfilled their term, do not prevent them from remarrying their [former] husbands if they agree among themselves on an acceptable basis. That is instructed to whoever of you believes in Allah and the Last Day. That is better for you and purer, and Allah knows and you know not.
240 2 The Cow 233 Mothers may breastfeed their children two complete years for whoever wishes to complete the nursing [period]. Upon the father is the mothers' provision and their clothing according to what is acceptable. No person is charged with more than his capacity. No mother should be harmed through her child, and no father through his child. And upon the [father's] heir is [a duty] like that [of the father]. And if they both desire weaning through mutual consent from both of them and consultation, there is no blame upon either of them. And if you wish to have your children nursed by a substitute, there is no blame upon you as long as you give payment according to what is acceptable. And fear Allah and know that Allah is Seeing of what you do.
241 2 The Cow 234 And those who are taken in death among you and leave wives behind - they, [the wives, shall] wait four months and ten [days]. And when they have fulfilled their term, then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable manner. And Allah is [fully] Acquainted with what you do.
242 2 The Cow 235 There is no blame upon you for that to which you [indirectly] allude concerning a proposal to women or for what you conceal within yourselves. Allah knows that you will have them in mind. But do not promise them secretly except for saying a proper saying. And do not determine to undertake a marriage contract until the decreed period reaches its end. And know that Allah knows what is within yourselves, so beware of Him. And know that Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.
243 2 The Cow 236 There is no blame upon you if you divorce women you have not touched nor specified for them an obligation. But give them [a gift of] compensation - the wealthy according to his capability and the poor according to his capability - a provision according to what is acceptable, a duty upon the doers of good.
244 2 The Cow 237 And if you divorce them before you have touched them and you have already specified for them an obligation, then [give] half of what you specified - unless they forego the right or the one in whose hand is the marriage contract foregoes it. And to forego it is nearer to righteousness. And do not forget graciousness between you. Indeed Allah, of whatever you do, is Seeing.
245 2 The Cow 238 Maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers and [in particular] the middle prayer and stand before Allah, devoutly obedient.
246 2 The Cow 239 And if you fear [an enemy, then pray] on foot or riding. But when you are secure, then remember Allah [in prayer], as He has taught you that which you did not [previously] know.
247 2 The Cow 240 And those who are taken in death among you and leave wives behind - for their wives is a bequest: maintenance for one year without turning [them] out. But if they leave [of their own accord], then there is no blame upon you for what they do with themselves in an acceptable way. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
248 2 The Cow 241 And for divorced women is a provision according to what is acceptable - a duty upon the righteous.
249 2 The Cow 242 Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you might use reason.
250 2 The Cow 243 Have you not considered those who left their homes in many thousands, fearing death? Allah said to them, "Die"; then He restored them to life. And Allah is full of bounty to the people, but most of the people do not show gratitude.
251 2 The Cow 244 And fight in the cause of Allah and know that Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
252 2 The Cow 245 Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.
253 2 The Cow 246 Have you not considered the assembly of the Children of Israel after [the time of] Moses when they said to a prophet of theirs, "Send to us a king, and we will fight in the way of Allah "? He said, "Would you perhaps refrain from fighting if fighting was prescribed for you?" They said, "And why should we not fight in the cause of Allah when we have been driven out from our homes and from our children?" But when fighting was prescribed for them, they turned away, except for a few of them. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers.
254 2 The Cow 247 And their prophet said to them, "Indeed, Allah has sent to you Saul as a king." They said, "How can he have kingship over us while we are more worthy of kingship than him and he has not been given any measure of wealth?" He said, "Indeed, Allah has chosen him over you and has increased him abundantly in knowledge and stature. And Allah gives His sovereignty to whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing [in favor] and Knowing."
255 2 The Cow 248 And their prophet said to them, "Indeed, a sign of his kingship is that the chest will come to you in which is assurance from your Lord and a remnant of what the family of Moses and the family of Aaron had left, carried by the angels. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers."
256 2 The Cow 249 And when Saul went forth with the soldiers, he said, "Indeed, Allah will be testing you with a river. So whoever drinks from it is not of me, and whoever does not taste it is indeed of me, excepting one who takes [from it] in the hollow of his hand." But they drank from it, except a [very] few of them. Then when he had crossed it along with those who believed with him, they said, "There is no power for us today against Goliath and his soldiers." But those who were certain that they would meet Allah said, "How many a small company has overcome a large company by permission of Allah. And Allah is with the patient."
257 2 The Cow 250 And when they went forth to [face] Goliath and his soldiers, they said, "Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people."
258 2 The Cow 251 So they defeated them by permission of Allah, and David killed Goliath, and Allah gave him the kingship and prophethood and taught him from that which He willed. And if it were not for Allah checking [some] people by means of others, the earth would have been corrupted, but Allah is full of bounty to the worlds.
259 2 The Cow 252 These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you, [O Muhammad], in truth. And indeed, you are from among the messengers.
260 2 The Cow 253 Those messengers - some of them We caused to exceed others. Among them were those to whom Allah spoke, and He raised some of them in degree. And We gave Jesus, the Son of Mary, clear proofs, and We supported him with the Pure Spirit. If Allah had willed, those [generations] succeeding them would not have fought each other after the clear proofs had come to them. But they differed, and some of them believed and some of them disbelieved. And if Allah had willed, they would not have fought each other, but Allah does what He intends.
261 2 The Cow 254 O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you before there comes a Day in which there is no exchange and no friendship and no intercession. And the disbelievers - they are the wrongdoers.
262 2 The Cow 255 Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
263 2 The Cow 256 There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
264 2 The Cow 257 Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve - their allies are Taghut. They take them out of the light into darknesses. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
265 2 The Cow 258 Have you not considered the one who argued with Abraham about his Lord [merely] because Allah had given him kingship? When Abraham said, "My Lord is the one who gives life and causes death," he said, "I give life and cause death." Abraham said, "Indeed, Allah brings up the sun from the east, so bring it up from the west." So the disbeliever was overwhelmed [by astonishment], and Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
266 2 The Cow 259 Or [consider such an example] as the one who passed by a township which had fallen into ruin. He said, "How will Allah bring this to life after its death?" So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years; then He revived him. He said, "How long have you remained?" The man said, "I have remained a day or part of a day." He said, "Rather, you have remained one hundred years. Look at your food and your drink; it has not changed with time. And look at your donkey; and We will make you a sign for the people. And look at the bones [of this donkey] - how We raise them and then We cover them with flesh." And when it became clear to him, he said, "I know that Allah is over all things competent."
267 2 The Cow 260 And [mention] when Abraham said, "My Lord, show me how You give life to the dead." [Allah] said, "Have you not believed?" He said, "Yes, but [I ask] only that my heart may be satisfied." [Allah] said, "Take four birds and commit them to yourself. Then [after slaughtering them] put on each hill a portion of them; then call them - they will come [flying] to you in haste. And know that Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise."
268 2 The Cow 261 The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
269 2 The Cow 262 Those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah and then do not follow up what they have spent with reminders [of it] or [other] injury will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
270 2 The Cow 263 Kind speech and forgiveness are better than charity followed by injury. And Allah is Free of need and Forbearing.
271 2 The Cow 264 O you who have believed, do not invalidate your charities with reminders or injury as does one who spends his wealth [only] to be seen by the people and does not believe in Allah and the Last Day. His example is like that of a [large] smooth stone upon which is dust and is hit by a downpour that leaves it bare. They are unable [to keep] anything of what they have earned. And Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
272 2 The Cow 265 And the example of those who spend their wealth seeking means to the approval of Allah and assuring [reward for] themselves is like a garden on high ground which is hit by a downpour - so it yields its fruits in double. And [even] if it is not hit by a downpour, then a drizzle [is sufficient]. And Allah, of what you do, is Seeing.
273 2 The Cow 266 Would one of you like to have a garden of palm trees and grapevines underneath which rivers flow in which he has from every fruit? But he is afflicted with old age and has weak offspring, and it is hit by a whirlwind containing fire and is burned. Thus does Allah make clear to you [His] verses that you might give thought.
274 2 The Cow 267 O you who have believed, spend from the good things which you have earned and from that which We have produced for you from the earth. And do not aim toward the defective therefrom, spending [from that] while you would not take it [yourself] except with closed eyes. And know that Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.
275 2 The Cow 268 Satan threatens you with poverty and orders you to immorality, while Allah promises you forgiveness from Him and bounty. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
276 2 The Cow 269 He gives wisdom to whom He wills, and whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given much good. And none will remember except those of understanding.
277 2 The Cow 270 And whatever you spend of expenditures or make of vows - indeed, Allah knows of it. And for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.
278 2 The Cow 271 If you disclose your charitable expenditures, they are good; but if you conceal them and give them to the poor, it is better for you, and He will remove from you some of your misdeeds [thereby]. And Allah, with what you do, is [fully] Acquainted.
279 2 The Cow 272 Not upon you, [O Muhammad], is [responsibility for] their guidance, but Allah guides whom He wills. And whatever good you [believers] spend is for yourselves, and you do not spend except seeking the countenance of Allah. And whatever you spend of good - it will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
280 2 The Cow 273 [Charity is] for the poor who have been restricted for the cause of Allah, unable to move about in the land. An ignorant [person] would think them self-sufficient because of their restraint, but you will know them by their [characteristic] sign. They do not ask people persistently [or at all]. And whatever you spend of good - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
281 2 The Cow 274 Those who spend their wealth [in Allah 's way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
282 2 The Cow 275 Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah. But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.
283 2 The Cow 276 Allah destroys interest and gives increase for charities. And Allah does not like every sinning disbeliever.
284 2 The Cow 277 Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds and establish prayer and give zakah will have their reward with their Lord, and there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
285 2 The Cow 278 O you who have believed, fear Allah and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers.
286 2 The Cow 279 And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal - [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged.
287 2 The Cow 280 And if someone is in hardship, then [let there be] postponement until [a time of] ease. But if you give [from your right as] charity, then it is better for you, if you only knew.
288 2 The Cow 281 And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.
289 2 The Cow 282 O you who have believed, when you contract a debt for a specified term, write it down. And let a scribe write [it] between you in justice. Let no scribe refuse to write as Allah has taught him. So let him write and let the one who has the obligation dictate. And let him fear Allah, his Lord, and not leave anything out of it. But if the one who has the obligation is of limited understanding or weak or unable to dictate himself, then let his guardian dictate in justice. And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses - so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her. And let not the witnesses refuse when they are called upon. And do not be [too] weary to write it, whether it is small or large, for its [specified] term. That is more just in the sight of Allah and stronger as evidence and more likely to prevent doubt between you, except when it is an immediate transaction which you conduct among yourselves. For [then] there is no blame upon you if you do not write it. And take witnesses when you conclude a contract. Let no scribe be harmed or any witness. For if you do so, indeed, it is [grave] disobedience in you. And fear Allah. And Allah teaches you. And Allah is Knowing of all things.
290 2 The Cow 283 And if you are on a journey and cannot find a scribe, then a security deposit [should be] taken. And if one of you entrusts another, then let him who is entrusted discharge his trust [faithfully] and let him fear Allah, his Lord. And do not conceal testimony, for whoever conceals it - his heart is indeed sinful, and Allah is Knowing of what you do.
291 2 The Cow 284 To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it. Then He will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.
292 2 The Cow 285 The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination."
293 2 The Cow 286 Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people."
294 3 The Family of Imraan 1 Alif, Lam, Meem.
295 3 The Family of Imraan 2 Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence.
296 3 The Family of Imraan 3 He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.
297 3 The Family of Imraan 4 Before, as guidance for the people. And He revealed the Qur'an. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of Allah will have a severe punishment, and Allah is exalted in Might, the Owner of Retribution.
298 3 The Family of Imraan 5 Indeed, from Allah nothing is hidden in the earth nor in the heaven.
299 3 The Family of Imraan 6 It is He who forms you in the wombs however He wills. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
300 3 The Family of Imraan 7 It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise - they are the foundation of the Book - and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah. But those firm in knowledge say, "We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord." And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.
301 3 The Family of Imraan 8 [Who say], "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower.
302 3 The Family of Imraan 9 Our Lord, surely You will gather the people for a Day about which there is no doubt. Indeed, Allah does not fail in His promise."
303 3 The Family of Imraan 10 Indeed, those who disbelieve - never will their wealth or their children avail them against Allah at all. And it is they who are fuel for the Fire.
304 3 The Family of Imraan 11 [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and those before them. They denied Our signs, so Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is severe in penalty.
305 3 The Family of Imraan 12 Say to those who disbelieve, "You will be overcome and gathered together to Hell, and wretched is the resting place."
306 3 The Family of Imraan 13 Already there has been for you a sign in the two armies which met - one fighting in the cause of Allah and another of disbelievers. They saw them [to be] twice their [own] number by [their] eyesight. But Allah supports with His victory whom He wills. Indeed in that is a lesson for those of vision.
307 3 The Family of Imraan 14 Beautified for people is the love of that which they desire - of women and sons, heaped-up sums of gold and silver, fine branded horses, and cattle and tilled land. That is the enjoyment of worldly life, but Allah has with Him the best return.
308 3 The Family of Imraan 15 Say, "Shall I inform you of [something] better than that? For those who fear Allah will be gardens in the presence of their Lord beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and purified spouses and approval from Allah. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants -
309 3 The Family of Imraan 16 Those who say, "Our Lord, indeed we have believed, so forgive us our sins and protect us from the punishment of the Fire,"
310 3 The Family of Imraan 17 The patient, the true, the obedient, those who spend [in the way of Allah], and those who seek forgiveness before dawn.
311 3 The Family of Imraan 18 Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge - [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
312 3 The Family of Imraan 19 Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah, then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account.
313 3 The Family of Imraan 20 So if they argue with you, say, "I have submitted myself to Allah [in Islam], and [so have] those who follow me." And say to those who were given the Scripture and [to] the unlearned, "Have you submitted yourselves?" And if they submit [in Islam], they are rightly guided; but if they turn away - then upon you is only the [duty of] notification. And Allah is Seeing of [His] servants.
314 3 The Family of Imraan 21 Those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and kill the prophets without right and kill those who order justice from among the people - give them tidings of a painful punishment.
315 3 The Family of Imraan 22 They are the ones whose deeds have become worthless in this world and the Hereafter, and for them there will be no helpers.
316 3 The Family of Imraan 23 Do you not consider, [O Muhammad], those who were given a portion of the Scripture? They are invited to the Scripture of Allah that it should arbitrate between them; then a party of them turns away, and they are refusing.
317 3 The Family of Imraan 24 That is because they say, "Never will the Fire touch us except for [a few] numbered days," and [because] they were deluded in their religion by what they were inventing.
318 3 The Family of Imraan 25 So how will it be when We assemble them for a Day about which there is no doubt? And each soul will be compensated [in full for] what it earned, and they will not be wronged.
319 3 The Family of Imraan 26 Say, "O Allah, Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will. In Your hand is [all] good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.
320 3 The Family of Imraan 27 You cause the night to enter the day, and You cause the day to enter the night; and You bring the living out of the dead, and You bring the dead out of the living. And You give provision to whom You will without account."
321 3 The Family of Imraan 28 Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination.
322 3 The Family of Imraan 29 Say, "Whether you conceal what is in your breasts or reveal it, Allah knows it. And He knows that which is in the heavens and that which is on the earth. And Allah is over all things competent.
323 3 The Family of Imraan 30 The Day every soul will find what it has done of good present [before it] and what it has done of evil, it will wish that between itself and that [evil] was a great distance. And Allah warns you of Himself, and Allah is Kind to [His] servants."
324 3 The Family of Imraan 31 Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful."
325 3 The Family of Imraan 32 Say, "Obey Allah and the Messenger." But if they turn away - then indeed, Allah does not like the disbelievers.
326 3 The Family of Imraan 33 Indeed, Allah chose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of 'Imran over the worlds -
327 3 The Family of Imraan 34 Descendants, some of them from others. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
328 3 The Family of Imraan 35 [Mention, O Muhammad], when the wife of 'Imran said, "My Lord, indeed I have pledged to You what is in my womb, consecrated [for Your service], so accept this from me. Indeed, You are the Hearing, the Knowing."
329 3 The Family of Imraan 36 But when she delivered her, she said, "My Lord, I have delivered a female." And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, "And the male is not like the female. And I have named her Mary, and I seek refuge for her in You and [for] her descendants from Satan, the expelled [from the mercy of Allah]."
330 3 The Family of Imraan 37 So her Lord accepted her with good acceptance and caused her to grow in a good manner and put her in the care of Zechariah. Every time Zechariah entered upon her in the prayer chamber, he found with her provision. He said, "O Mary, from where is this [coming] to you?" She said, "It is from Allah. Indeed, Allah provides for whom He wills without account."
331 3 The Family of Imraan 38 At that, Zechariah called upon his Lord, saying, "My Lord, grant me from Yourself a good offspring. Indeed, You are the Hearer of supplication."
332 3 The Family of Imraan 39 So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, "Indeed, Allah gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from Allah and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous."
333 3 The Family of Imraan 40 He said, "My Lord, how will I have a boy when I have reached old age and my wife is barren?" The angel said, "Such is Allah; He does what He wills."
334 3 The Family of Imraan 41 He said, "My Lord, make for me a sign." He Said, "Your sign is that you will not [be able to] speak to the people for three days except by gesture. And remember your Lord much and exalt [Him with praise] in the evening and the morning."
335 3 The Family of Imraan 42 And [mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.
336 3 The Family of Imraan 43 O Mary, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer]."
337 3 The Family of Imraan 44 That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Mary. Nor were you with them when they disputed.
338 3 The Family of Imraan 45 [And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah].
339 3 The Family of Imraan 46 He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous."
340 3 The Family of Imraan 47 She said, "My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is Allah; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is.
341 3 The Family of Imraan 48 And He will teach him writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel
342 3 The Family of Imraan 49 And [make him] a messenger to the Children of Israel, [who will say], 'Indeed I have come to you with a sign from your Lord in that I design for you from clay [that which is] like the form of a bird, then I breathe into it and it becomes a bird by permission of Allah. And I cure the blind and the leper, and I give life to the dead - by permission of Allah. And I inform you of what you eat and what you store in your houses. Indeed in that is a sign for you, if you are believers.
343 3 The Family of Imraan 50 And [I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me.
344 3 The Family of Imraan 51 Indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is the straight path."
345 3 The Family of Imraan 52 But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah?" The disciples said, "We are supporters for Allah. We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].
346 3 The Family of Imraan 53 Our Lord, we have believed in what You revealed and have followed the messenger Jesus, so register us among the witnesses [to truth]."
347 3 The Family of Imraan 54 And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.
348 3 The Family of Imraan 55 [Mention] when Allah said, "O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you [in submission to Allah alone] superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ.
349 3 The Family of Imraan 56 And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers."
350 3 The Family of Imraan 57 But as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, He will give them in full their rewards, and Allah does not like the wrongdoers.
351 3 The Family of Imraan 58 This is what We recite to you, [O Muhammad], of [Our] verses and the precise [and wise] message.
352 3 The Family of Imraan 59 Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was.
353 3 The Family of Imraan 60 The truth is from your Lord, so do not be among the doubters.
354 3 The Family of Imraan 61 Then whoever argues with you about it after [this] knowledge has come to you - say, "Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then supplicate earnestly [together] and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liars [among us]."
355 3 The Family of Imraan 62 Indeed, this is the true narration. And there is no deity except Allah. And indeed, Allah is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
356 3 The Family of Imraan 63 But if they turn away, then indeed - Allah is Knowing of the corrupters.
357 3 The Family of Imraan 64 Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]."
358 3 The Family of Imraan 65 O People of the Scripture, why do you argue about Abraham while the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed until after him? Then will you not reason?
359 3 The Family of Imraan 66 Here you are - those who have argued about that of which you have [some] knowledge, but why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows, while you know not.
360 3 The Family of Imraan 67 Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah]. And he was not of the polytheists.
361 3 The Family of Imraan 68 Indeed, the most worthy of Abraham among the people are those who followed him [in submission to Allah] and this prophet, and those who believe [in his message]. And Allah is the ally of the believers.
362 3 The Family of Imraan 69 A faction of the people of the Scripture wish they could mislead you. But they do not mislead except themselves, and they perceive [it] not.
363 3 The Family of Imraan 70 O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah while you witness [to their truth]?
364 3 The Family of Imraan 71 O People of the Scripture, why do you confuse the truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know [it]?
365 3 The Family of Imraan 72 And a faction of the People of the Scripture say [to each other], "Believe in that which was revealed to the believers at the beginning of the day and reject it at its end that perhaps they will abandon their religion,
366 3 The Family of Imraan 73 And do not trust except those who follow your religion." Say, "Indeed, the [true] guidance is the guidance of Allah. [Do you fear] lest someone be given [knowledge] like you were given or that they would [thereby] argue with you before your Lord?" Say, "Indeed, [all] bounty is in the hand of Allah - He grants it to whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Wise."
367 3 The Family of Imraan 74 He selects for His mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty.
368 3 The Family of Imraan 75 And among the People of the Scripture is he who, if you entrust him with a great amount [of wealth], he will return it to you. And among them is he who, if you entrust him with a [single] silver coin, he will not return it to you unless you are constantly standing over him [demanding it]. That is because they say, "There is no blame upon us concerning the unlearned." And they speak untruth about Allah while they know [it].
369 3 The Family of Imraan 76 But yes, whoever fulfills his commitment and fears Allah - then indeed, Allah loves those who fear Him.
370 3 The Family of Imraan 77 Indeed, those who exchange the covenant of Allah and their [own] oaths for a small price will have no share in the Hereafter, and Allah will not speak to them or look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them; and they will have a painful punishment.
371 3 The Family of Imraan 78 And indeed, there is among them a party who alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "This is from Allah," but it is not from Allah. And they speak untruth about Allah while they know.
372 3 The Family of Imraan 79 It is not for a human [prophet] that Allah should give him the Scripture and authority and prophethood and then he would say to the people, "Be servants to me rather than Allah," but [instead, he would say], "Be pious scholars of the Lord because of what you have taught of the Scripture and because of what you have studied."
373 3 The Family of Imraan 80 Nor could he order you to take the angels and prophets as lords. Would he order you to disbelief after you had been Muslims?
374 3 The Family of Imraan 81 And [recall, O People of the Scripture], when Allah took the covenant of the prophets, [saying], "Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him." [Allah] said, "Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?" They said, "We have acknowledged it." He said, "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."
375 3 The Family of Imraan 82 And whoever turned away after that - they were the defiantly disobedient.
376 3 The Family of Imraan 83 So is it other than the religion of Allah they desire, while to Him have submitted [all] those within the heavens and earth, willingly or by compulsion, and to Him they will be returned?
377 3 The Family of Imraan 84 Say, "We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [submitting] to Him."
378 3 The Family of Imraan 85 And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.
379 3 The Family of Imraan 86 How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and had witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
380 3 The Family of Imraan 87 Those - their recompense will be that upon them is the curse of Allah and the angels and the people, all together,
381 3 The Family of Imraan 88 Abiding eternally therein. The punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.
382 3 The Family of Imraan 89 Except for those who repent after that and correct themselves. For indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
383 3 The Family of Imraan 90 Indeed, those who reject the message after their belief and then increase in disbelief - never will their [claimed] repentance be accepted, and they are the ones astray.
384 3 The Family of Imraan 91 Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers - never would the [whole] capacity of the earth in gold be accepted from one of them if he would [seek to] ransom himself with it. For those there will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers.
385 3 The Family of Imraan 92 Never will you attain the good [reward] until you spend [in the way of Allah] from that which you love. And whatever you spend - indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.
386 3 The Family of Imraan 93 All food was lawful to the Children of Israel except what Israel had made unlawful to himself before the Torah was revealed. Say, [O Muhammad], "So bring the Torah and recite it, if you should be truthful."
387 3 The Family of Imraan 94 And whoever invents about Allah untruth after that - then those are [truly] the wrongdoers.
388 3 The Family of Imraan 95 Say, "Allah has told the truth. So follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of the polytheists."
389 3 The Family of Imraan 96 Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah - blessed and a guidance for the worlds.
390 3 The Family of Imraan 97 In it are clear signs [such as] the standing place of Abraham. And whoever enters it shall be safe. And [due] to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the House - for whoever is able to find thereto a way. But whoever disbelieves - then indeed, Allah is free from need of the worlds.
391 3 The Family of Imraan 98 Say, "O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah while Allah is Witness over what you do?"
392 3 The Family of Imraan 99 Say, "O People of the Scripture, why do you avert from the way of Allah those who believe, seeking to make it [seem] deviant, while you are witnesses [to the truth]? And Allah is not unaware of what you do."
393 3 The Family of Imraan 100 O you who have believed, if you obey a party of those who were given the Scripture, they would turn you back, after your belief, [to being] unbelievers.
394 3 The Family of Imraan 101 And how could you disbelieve while to you are being recited the verses of Allah and among you is His Messenger? And whoever holds firmly to Allah has [indeed] been guided to a straight path.
395 3 The Family of Imraan 102 O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims [in submission to Him].
396 3 The Family of Imraan 103 And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.
397 3 The Family of Imraan 104 And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.
398 3 The Family of Imraan 105 And do not be like the ones who became divided and differed after the clear proofs had come to them. And those will have a great punishment.
399 3 The Family of Imraan 106 On the Day [some] faces will turn white and [some] faces will turn black. As for those whose faces turn black, [to them it will be said], "Did you disbelieve after your belief? Then taste the punishment for what you used to reject."
400 3 The Family of Imraan 107 But as for those whose faces will turn white, [they will be] within the mercy of Allah. They will abide therein eternally.
401 3 The Family of Imraan 108 These are the verses of Allah. We recite them to you, [O Muhammad], in truth; and Allah wants no injustice to the worlds.
402 3 The Family of Imraan 109 To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And to Allah will [all] matters be returned.
403 3 The Family of Imraan 110 You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. If only the People of the Scripture had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient.
404 3 The Family of Imraan 111 They will not harm you except for [some] annoyance. And if they fight you, they will show you their backs; then they will not be aided.
405 3 The Family of Imraan 112 They have been put under humiliation [by Allah] wherever they are overtaken, except for a covenant from Allah and a rope from the Muslims. And they have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah and have been put under destitution. That is because they disbelieved in the verses of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That is because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.
406 3 The Family of Imraan 113 They are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of Allah during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer].
407 3 The Family of Imraan 114 They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and hasten to good deeds. And those are among the righteous.
408 3 The Family of Imraan 115 And whatever good they do - never will it be removed from them. And Allah is Knowing of the righteous.
409 3 The Family of Imraan 116 Indeed, those who disbelieve - never will their wealth or their children avail them against Allah at all, and those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.
410 3 The Family of Imraan 117 The example of what they spend in this worldly life is like that of a wind containing frost which strikes the harvest of a people who have wronged themselves and destroys it. And Allah has not wronged them, but they wrong themselves.
411 3 The Family of Imraan 118 O you who have believed, do not take as intimates those other than yourselves, for they will not spare you [any] ruin. They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the signs, if you will use reason.
412 3 The Family of Imraan 119 Here you are loving them but they are not loving you, while you believe in the Scripture - all of it. And when they meet you, they say, "We believe." But when they are alone, they bite their fingertips at you in rage. Say, "Die in your rage. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts."
413 3 The Family of Imraan 120 If good touches you, it distresses them; but if harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allah, their plot will not harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do.
414 3 The Family of Imraan 121 And [remember] when you, [O Muhammad], left your family in the morning to post the believers at their stations for the battle [of Uhud] - and Allah is Hearing and Knowing -
415 3 The Family of Imraan 122 When two parties among you were about to lose courage, but Allah was their ally; and upon Allah the believers should rely.
416 3 The Family of Imraan 123 And already had Allah given you victory at [the battle of] Badr while you were few in number. Then fear Allah; perhaps you will be grateful.
417 3 The Family of Imraan 124 [Remember] when you said to the believers, "Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should reinforce you with three thousand angels sent down?
418 3 The Family of Imraan 125 Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allah and the enemy come upon you [attacking] in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels having marks [of distinction]
419 3 The Family of Imraan 126 And Allah made it not except as [a sign of] good tidings for you and to reassure your hearts thereby. And victory is not except from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise -
420 3 The Family of Imraan 127 That He might cut down a section of the disbelievers or suppress them so that they turn back disappointed.
421 3 The Family of Imraan 128 Not for you, [O Muhammad, but for Allah], is the decision whether He should [cut them down] or forgive them or punish them, for indeed, they are wrongdoers.
422 3 The Family of Imraan 129 And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
423 3 The Family of Imraan 130 O you who have believed, do not consume usury, doubled and multiplied, but fear Allah that you may be successful.
424 3 The Family of Imraan 131 And fear the Fire, which has been prepared for the disbelievers.
425 3 The Family of Imraan 132 And obey Allah and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy.
426 3 The Family of Imraan 133 And hasten to forgiveness from your Lord and a garden as wide as the heavens and earth, prepared for the righteous
427 3 The Family of Imraan 134 Who spend [in the cause of Allah] during ease and hardship and who restrain anger and who pardon the people - and Allah loves the doers of good;
428 3 The Family of Imraan 135 And those who, when they commit an immorality or wrong themselves [by transgression], remember Allah and seek forgiveness for their sins - and who can forgive sins except Allah? - and [who] do not persist in what they have done while they know.
429 3 The Family of Imraan 136 Those - their reward is forgiveness from their Lord and gardens beneath which rivers flow [in Paradise], wherein they will abide eternally; and excellent is the reward of the [righteous] workers.
430 3 The Family of Imraan 137 Similar situations [as yours] have passed on before you, so proceed throughout the earth and observe how was the end of those who denied.
431 3 The Family of Imraan 138 This [Qur'an] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah.
432 3 The Family of Imraan 139 So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you are [true] believers.
433 3 The Family of Imraan 140 If a wound should touch you - there has already touched the [opposing] people a wound similar to it. And these days [of varying conditions] We alternate among the people so that Allah may make evident those who believe and [may] take to Himself from among you martyrs - and Allah does not like the wrongdoers -
434 3 The Family of Imraan 141 And that Allah may purify the believers [through trials] and destroy the disbelievers.
435 3 The Family of Imraan 142 Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while Allah has not yet made evident those of you who fight in His cause and made evident those who are steadfast?
436 3 The Family of Imraan 143 And you had certainly wished for martyrdom before you encountered it, and you have [now] seen it [before you] while you were looking on.
437 3 The Family of Imraan 144 Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all; but Allah will reward the grateful.
438 3 The Family of Imraan 145 And it is not [possible] for one to die except by permission of Allah at a decree determined. And whoever desires the reward of this world - We will give him thereof; and whoever desires the reward of the Hereafter - We will give him thereof. And we will reward the grateful.
439 3 The Family of Imraan 146 And how many a prophet [fought and] with him fought many religious scholars. But they never lost assurance due to what afflicted them in the cause of Allah, nor did they weaken or submit. And Allah loves the steadfast.
440 3 The Family of Imraan 147 And their words were not but that they said, "Our Lord, forgive us our sins and the excess [committed] in our affairs and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people."
441 3 The Family of Imraan 148 So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the good reward of the Hereafter. And Allah loves the doers of good.
442 3 The Family of Imraan 149 O you who have believed, if you obey those who disbelieve, they will turn you back on your heels, and you will [then] become losers.
443 3 The Family of Imraan 150 But Allah is your protector, and He is the best of helpers.
444 3 The Family of Imraan 151 We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.
445 3 The Family of Imraan 152 And Allah had certainly fulfilled His promise to you when you were killing the enemy by His permission until [the time] when you lost courage and fell to disputing about the order [given by the Prophet] and disobeyed after He had shown you that which you love. Among you are some who desire this world, and among you are some who desire the Hereafter. Then he turned you back from them [defeated] that He might test you. And He has already forgiven you, and Allah is the possessor of bounty for the believers.
446 3 The Family of Imraan 153 [Remember] when you [fled and] climbed [the mountain] without looking aside at anyone while the Messenger was calling you from behind. So Allah repaid you with distress upon distress so you would not grieve for that which had escaped you [of victory and spoils of war] or [for] that which had befallen you [of injury and death]. And Allah is [fully] Acquainted with what you do.
447 3 The Family of Imraan 154 Then after distress, He sent down upon you security [in the form of] drowsiness, overcoming a faction of you, while another faction worried about themselves, thinking of Allah other than the truth - the thought of ignorance, saying, "Is there anything for us [to have done] in this matter?" Say, "Indeed, the matter belongs completely to Allah." They conceal within themselves what they will not reveal to you. They say, "If there was anything we could have done in the matter, some of us would not have been killed right here." Say, "Even if you had been inside your houses, those decreed to be killed would have come out to their death beds." [It was] so that Allah might test what is in your breasts and purify what is in your hearts. And Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts.
448 3 The Family of Imraan 155 Indeed, those of you who turned back on the day the two armies met, it was Satan who caused them to slip because of some [blame] they had earned. But Allah has already forgiven them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.
449 3 The Family of Imraan 156 O you who have believed, do not be like those who disbelieved and said about their brothers when they traveled through the land or went out to fight, "If they had been with us, they would not have died or have been killed," so Allah makes that [misconception] a regret within their hearts. And it is Allah who gives life and causes death, and Allah is Seeing of what you do.
450 3 The Family of Imraan 157 And if you are killed in the cause of Allah or die - then forgiveness from Allah and mercy are better than whatever they accumulate [in this world].
451 3 The Family of Imraan 158 And whether you die or are killed, unto Allah you will be gathered.
452 3 The Family of Imraan 159 So by mercy from Allah, [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided, then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him].
453 3 The Family of Imraan 160 If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely.
454 3 The Family of Imraan 161 It is not [attributable] to any prophet that he would act unfaithfully [in regard to war booty]. And whoever betrays, [taking unlawfully], will come with what he took on the Day of Resurrection. Then will every soul be [fully] compensated for what it earned, and they will not be wronged.
455 3 The Family of Imraan 162 So is one who pursues the pleasure of Allah like one who brings upon himself the anger of Allah and whose refuge is Hell? And wretched is the destination.
456 3 The Family of Imraan 163 They are [varying] degrees in the sight of Allah, and Allah is Seeing of whatever they do.
457 3 The Family of Imraan 164 Certainly did Allah confer [great] favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error.
458 3 The Family of Imraan 165 Why [is it that] when a [single] disaster struck you [on the day of Uhud], although you had struck [the enemy in the battle of Badr] with one twice as great, you said, "From where is this?" Say, "It is from yourselves." Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
459 3 The Family of Imraan 166 And what struck you on the day the two armies met was by permission of Allah that He might make evident the [true] believers.
460 3 The Family of Imraan 167 And that He might make evident those who are hypocrites. For it was said to them, "Come, fight in the way of Allah or [at least] defend." They said, "If we had known [there would be] fighting, we would have followed you." They were nearer to disbelief that day than to faith, saying with their mouths what was not in their hearts. And Allah is most Knowing of what they conceal -
461 3 The Family of Imraan 168 Those who said about their brothers while sitting [at home], "If they had obeyed us, they would not have been killed." Say, "Then prevent death from yourselves, if you should be truthful."
462 3 The Family of Imraan 169 And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision,
463 3 The Family of Imraan 170 Rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty, and they receive good tidings about those [to be martyred] after them who have not yet joined them - that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
464 3 The Family of Imraan 171 They receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty and [of the fact] that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost -
465 3 The Family of Imraan 172 Those [believers] who responded to Allah and the Messenger after injury had struck them. For those who did good among them and feared Allah is a great reward -
466 3 The Family of Imraan 173 Those to whom hypocrites said, "Indeed, the people have gathered against you, so fear them." But it [merely] increased them in faith, and they said, "Sufficient for us is Allah, and [He is] the best Disposer of affairs."
467 3 The Family of Imraan 174 So they returned with favor from Allah and bounty, no harm having touched them. And they pursued the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty.
468 3 The Family of Imraan 175 That is only Satan who frightens [you] of his supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers.
469 3 The Family of Imraan 176 And do not be grieved, [O Muhammad], by those who hasten into disbelief. Indeed, they will never harm Allah at all. Allah intends that He should give them no share in the Hereafter, and for them is a great punishment.
470 3 The Family of Imraan 177 Indeed, those who purchase disbelief [in exchange] for faith - never will they harm Allah at all, and for them is a painful punishment.
471 3 The Family of Imraan 178 And let not those who disbelieve ever think that [because] We extend their time [of enjoyment] it is better for them. We only extend it for them so that they may increase in sin, and for them is a humiliating punishment.
472 3 The Family of Imraan 179 Allah would not leave the believers in that [state] you are in [presently] until He separates the evil from the good. Nor would Allah reveal to you the unseen. But [instead], Allah chooses of His messengers whom He wills, so believe in Allah and His messengers. And if you believe and fear Him, then for you is a great reward.
473 3 The Family of Imraan 180 And let not those who [greedily] withhold what Allah has given them of His bounty ever think that it is better for them. Rather, it is worse for them. Their necks will be encircled by what they withheld on the Day of Resurrection. And to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. And Allah, with what you do, is [fully] Acquainted.
474 3 The Family of Imraan 181 Allah has certainly heard the statement of those [Jews] who said, "Indeed, Allah is poor, while we are rich." We will record what they said and their killing of the prophets without right and will say, "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.
475 3 The Family of Imraan 182 That is for what your hands have put forth and because Allah is not ever unjust to [His] servants."
476 3 The Family of Imraan 183 [They are] those who said, "Indeed, Allah has taken our promise not to believe any messenger until he brings us an offering which fire [from heaven] will consume." Say, "There have already come to you messengers before me with clear proofs and [even] that of which you speak. So why did you kill them, if you should be truthful?"
477 3 The Family of Imraan 184 Then if they deny you, [O Muhammad] - so were messengers denied before you, who brought clear proofs and written ordinances and the enlightening Scripture.
478 3 The Family of Imraan 185 Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection. So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained [his desire]. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.
479 3 The Family of Imraan 186 You will surely be tested in your possessions and in yourselves. And you will surely hear from those who were given the Scripture before you and from those who associate others with Allah much abuse. But if you are patient and fear Allah - indeed, that is of the matters [worthy] of determination.
480 3 The Family of Imraan 187 And [mention, O Muhammad], when Allah took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture, [saying], "You must make it clear to the people and not conceal it." But they threw it away behind their backs and exchanged it for a small price. And wretched is that which they purchased.
481 3 The Family of Imraan 188 And never think that those who rejoice in what they have perpetrated and like to be praised for what they did not do - never think them [to be] in safety from the punishment, and for them is a painful punishment.
482 3 The Family of Imraan 189 And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and Allah is over all things competent.
483 3 The Family of Imraan 190 Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.
484 3 The Family of Imraan 191 Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], "Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.
485 3 The Family of Imraan 192 Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire - You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.
486 3 The Family of Imraan 193 Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, [saying], 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous.
487 3 The Family of Imraan 194 Our Lord, and grant us what You promised us through Your messengers and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, You do not fail in [Your] promise."
488 3 The Family of Imraan 195 And their Lord responded to them, "Never will I allow to be lost the work of [any] worker among you, whether male or female; you are of one another. So those who emigrated or were evicted from their homes or were harmed in My cause or fought or were killed - I will surely remove from them their misdeeds, and I will surely admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow as reward from Allah, and Allah has with Him the best reward."
489 3 The Family of Imraan 196 Be not deceived by the [uninhibited] movement of the disbelievers throughout the land.
490 3 The Family of Imraan 197 [It is but] a small enjoyment; then their [final] refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.
491 3 The Family of Imraan 198 But those who feared their Lord will have gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein, as accommodation from Allah. And that which is with Allah is best for the righteous.
492 3 The Family of Imraan 199 And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in Allah and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, [being] humbly submissive to Allah. They do not exchange the verses of Allah for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
493 3 The Family of Imraan 200 O you who have believed, persevere and endure and remain stationed and fear Allah that you may be successful.
494 4 The Women 1 O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah, through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer.
495 4 The Women 2 And give to the orphans their properties and do not substitute the defective [of your own] for the good [of theirs]. And do not consume their properties into your own. Indeed, that is ever a great sin.
496 4 The Women 3 And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].
497 4 The Women 4 And give the women [upon marriage] their [bridal] gifts graciously. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease.
498 4 The Women 5 And do not give the weak-minded your property, which Allah has made a means of sustenance for you, but provide for them with it and clothe them and speak to them words of appropriate kindness.
499 4 The Women 6 And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, [anticipating] that they will grow up. And whoever, [when acting as guardian], is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor - let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.
500 4 The Women 7 For men is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, and for women is a share of what the parents and close relatives leave, be it little or much - an obligatory share.
501 4 The Women 8 And when [other] relatives and orphans and the needy are present at the [time of] division, then provide for them [something] out of the estate and speak to them words of appropriate kindness.
502 4 The Women 9 And let those [executors and guardians] fear [injustice] as if they [themselves] had left weak offspring behind and feared for them. So let them fear Allah and speak words of appropriate justice.
503 4 The Women 10 Indeed, those who devour the property of orphans unjustly are only consuming into their bellies fire. And they will be burned in a Blaze.
504 4 The Women 11 Allah instructs you concerning your children: for the male, what is equal to the share of two females. But if there are [only] daughters, two or more, for them is two thirds of one's estate. And if there is only one, for her is half. And for one's parents, to each one of them is a sixth of his estate if he left children. But if he had no children and the parents [alone] inherit from him, then for his mother is one third. And if he had brothers [or sisters], for his mother is a sixth, after any bequest he [may have] made or debt. Your parents or your children - you know not which of them are nearest to you in benefit. [These shares are] an obligation [imposed] by Allah. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
505 4 The Women 12 And for you is half of what your wives leave if they have no child. But if they have a child, for you is one fourth of what they leave, after any bequest they [may have] made or debt. And for the wives is one fourth if you leave no child. But if you leave a child, then for them is an eighth of what you leave, after any bequest you [may have] made or debt. And if a man or woman leaves neither ascendants nor descendants but has a brother or a sister, then for each one of them is a sixth. But if they are more than two, they share a third, after any bequest which was made or debt, as long as there is no detriment [caused]. [This is] an ordinance from Allah, and Allah is Knowing and Forbearing.
506 4 The Women 13 These are the limits [set by] Allah, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger will be admitted by Him to gardens [in Paradise] under which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein; and that is the great attainment.
507 4 The Women 14 And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger and transgresses His limits - He will put him into the Fire to abide eternally therein, and he will have a humiliating punishment.
508 4 The Women 15 Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women - bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.
509 4 The Women 16 And the two who commit it among you, dishonor them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is ever Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
510 4 The Women 17 The repentance accepted by Allah is only for those who do wrong in ignorance [or carelessness] and then repent soon after. It is those to whom Allah will turn in forgiveness, and Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
511 4 The Women 18 But repentance is not [accepted] of those who [continue to] do evil deeds up until, when death comes to one of them, he says, "Indeed, I have repented now," or of those who die while they are disbelievers. For them We have prepared a painful punishment.
512 4 The Women 19 O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them - perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.
513 4 The Women 20 But if you want to replace one wife with another and you have given one of them a great amount [in gifts], do not take [back] from it anything. Would you take it in injustice and manifest sin?
514 4 The Women 21 And how could you take it while you have gone in unto each other and they have taken from you a solemn covenant?
515 4 The Women 22 And do not marry those [women] whom your fathers married, except what has already occurred. Indeed, it was an immorality and hateful [to Allah] and was evil as a way.
516 4 The Women 23 Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
517 4 The Women 24 And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
518 4 The Women 25 And whoever among you cannot [find] the means to marry free, believing women, then [he may marry] from those whom your right hands possess of believing slave girls. And Allah is most knowing about your faith. You [believers] are of one another. So marry them with the permission of their people and give them their due compensation according to what is acceptable. [They should be] chaste, neither [of] those who commit unlawful intercourse randomly nor those who take [secret] lovers. But once they are sheltered in marriage, if they should commit adultery, then for them is half the punishment for free [unmarried] women. This [allowance] is for him among you who fears sin, but to be patient is better for you. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
519 4 The Women 26 Allah wants to make clear to you [the lawful from the unlawful] and guide you to the [good] practices of those before you and to accept your repentance. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
520 4 The Women 27 Allah wants to accept your repentance, but those who follow [their] passions want you to digress [into] a great deviation.
521 4 The Women 28 And Allah wants to lighten for you [your difficulties]; and mankind was created weak.
522 4 The Women 29 O you who have believed, do not consume one another's wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent. And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.
523 4 The Women 30 And whoever does that in aggression and injustice - then We will drive him into a Fire. And that, for Allah, is [always] easy.
524 4 The Women 31 If you avoid the major sins which you are forbidden, We will remove from you your lesser sins and admit you to a noble entrance [into Paradise].
525 4 The Women 32 And do not wish for that by which Allah has made some of you exceed others. For men is a share of what they have earned, and for women is a share of what they have earned. And ask Allah of his bounty. Indeed Allah is ever, of all things, Knowing.
526 4 The Women 33 And for all, We have made heirs to what is left by parents and relatives. And to those whom your oaths have bound [to you] - give them their share. Indeed Allah is ever, over all things, a Witness.
527 4 The Women 34 Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.
528 4 The Women 35 And if you fear dissension between the two, send an arbitrator from his people and an arbitrator from her people. If they both desire reconciliation, Allah will cause it between them. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Acquainted [with all things].
529 4 The Women 36 Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him, and to parents do good, and to relatives, orphans, the needy, the near neighbor, the neighbor farther away, the companion at your side, the traveler, and those whom your right hands possess. Indeed, Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful.
530 4 The Women 37 Who are stingy and enjoin upon [other] people stinginess and conceal what Allah has given them of His bounty - and We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment -
531 4 The Women 38 And [also] those who spend of their wealth to be seen by the people and believe not in Allah nor in the Last Day. And he to whom Satan is a companion - then evil is he as a companion.
532 4 The Women 39 And what [harm would come] upon them if they believed in Allah and the Last Day and spent out of what Allah provided for them? And Allah is ever, about them, Knowing.
533 4 The Women 40 Indeed, Allah does not do injustice, [even] as much as an atom's weight; while if there is a good deed, He multiplies it and gives from Himself a great reward.
534 4 The Women 41 So how [will it be] when We bring from every nation a witness and we bring you, [O Muhammad] against these [people] as a witness?
535 4 The Women 42 That Day, those who disbelieved and disobeyed the Messenger will wish they could be covered by the earth. And they will not conceal from Allah a [single] statement.
536 4 The Women 43 O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body]. And if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it]. Indeed, Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving.
537 4 The Women 44 Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Scripture, purchasing error [in exchange for it] and wishing you would lose the way?
538 4 The Women 45 And Allah is most knowing of your enemies; and sufficient is Allah as an ally, and sufficient is Allah as a helper.
539 4 The Women 46 Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] usages and say, "We hear and disobey" and "Hear but be not heard" and "Ra'ina," twisting their tongues and defaming the religion. And if they had said [instead], "We hear and obey" and "Wait for us [to understand]," it would have been better for them and more suitable. But Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.
540 4 The Women 47 O you who were given the Scripture, believe in what We have sent down [to Muhammad], confirming that which is with you, before We obliterate faces and turn them toward their backs or curse them as We cursed the sabbath-breakers. And ever is the decree of Allah accomplished.
541 4 The Women 48 Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.
542 4 The Women 49 Have you not seen those who claim themselves to be pure? Rather, Allah purifies whom He wills, and injustice is not done to them, [even] as much as a thread [inside a date seed].
543 4 The Women 50 Look how they invent about Allah untruth, and sufficient is that as a manifest sin.
544 4 The Women 51 Have you not seen those who were given a portion of the Scripture, who believe in superstition and false objects of worship and say about the disbelievers, "These are better guided than the believers as to the way"?
545 4 The Women 52 Those are the ones whom Allah has cursed; and he whom Allah curses - never will you find for him a helper.
546 4 The Women 53 Or have they a share of dominion? Then [if that were so], they would not give the people [even as much as] the speck on a date seed.
547 4 The Women 54 Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of His bounty? But we had already given the family of Abraham the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom.
548 4 The Women 55 And some among them believed in it, and some among them were averse to it. And sufficient is Hell as a blaze.
549 4 The Women 56 Indeed, those who disbelieve in Our verses - We will drive them into a Fire. Every time their skins are roasted through We will replace them with other skins so they may taste the punishment. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted in Might and Wise.
550 4 The Women 57 But those who believe and do righteous deeds - We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide forever. For them therein are purified spouses, and We will admit them to deepening shade.
551 4 The Women 58 Indeed, Allah commands you to render trusts to whom they are due and when you judge between people to judge with justice. Excellent is that which Allah instructs you. Indeed, Allah is ever Hearing and Seeing.
552 4 The Women 59 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.
553 4 The Women 60 Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray.
554 4 The Women 61 And when it is said to them, "Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger," you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion.
555 4 The Women 62 So how [will it be] when disaster strikes them because of what their hands have put forth and then they come to you swearing by Allah, "We intended nothing but good conduct and accommodation."
556 4 The Women 63 Those are the ones of whom Allah knows what is in their hearts, so turn away from them but admonish them and speak to them a far-reaching word.
557 4 The Women 64 And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. And if, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, [O Muhammad], and asked forgiveness of Allah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Accepting of repentance and Merciful.
558 4 The Women 65 But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission.
559 4 The Women 66 And if We had decreed upon them, "Kill yourselves" or "Leave your homes," they would not have done it, except for a few of them. But if they had done what they were instructed, it would have been better for them and a firmer position [for them in faith].
560 4 The Women 67 And then We would have given them from Us a great reward.
561 4 The Women 68 And We would have guided them to a straight path.
562 4 The Women 69 And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger - those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions.
563 4 The Women 70 That is the bounty from Allah, and sufficient is Allah as Knower.
564 4 The Women 71 O you who have believed, take your precaution and [either] go forth in companies or go forth all together.
565 4 The Women 72 And indeed, there is among you he who lingers behind; and if disaster strikes you, he says, "Allah has favored me in that I was not present with them."
566 4 The Women 73 But if bounty comes to you from Allah, he will surely say, as if there had never been between you and him any affection. "Oh, I wish I had been with them so I could have attained a great attainment."
567 4 The Women 74 So let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter. And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or achieves victory - We will bestow upon him a great reward.
568 4 The Women 75 And what is [the matter] with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and [for] the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, "Our Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper?"
569 4 The Women 76 Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.
570 4 The Women 77 Have you not seen those who were told, "Restrain your hands [from fighting] and establish prayer and give zakah"? But then when fighting was ordained for them, at once a party of them feared men as they fear Allah or with [even] greater fear. They said, "Our Lord, why have You decreed upon us fighting? If only You had postponed [it for] us for a short time." Say, The enjoyment of this world is little, and the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah. And injustice will not be done to you, [even] as much as a thread [inside a date seed]."
571 4 The Women 78 Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction. But if good comes to them, they say, "This is from Allah "; and if evil befalls them, they say, "This is from you." Say, "All [things] are from Allah." So what is [the matter] with those people that they can hardly understand any statement?
572 4 The Women 79 What comes to you of good is from Allah, but what comes to you of evil, [O man], is from yourself. And We have sent you, [O Muhammad], to the people as a messenger, and sufficient is Allah as Witness.
573 4 The Women 80 He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah; but those who turn away - We have not sent you over them as a guardian.
574 4 The Women 81 And they say, "[We pledge] obedience." But when they leave you, a group of them spend the night determining to do other than what you say. But Allah records what they plan by night. So leave them alone and rely upon Allah. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.
575 4 The Women 82 Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.
576 4 The Women 83 And when there comes to them information about [public] security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the Messenger or to those of authority among them, then the ones who [can] draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have followed Satan, except for a few.
577 4 The Women 84 So fight, [O Muhammad], in the cause of Allah; you are not held responsible except for yourself. And encourage the believers [to join you] that perhaps Allah will restrain the [military] might of those who disbelieve. And Allah is greater in might and stronger in [exemplary] punishment.
578 4 The Women 85 Whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward therefrom; and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden therefrom. And ever is Allah, over all things, a Keeper.
579 4 The Women 86 And when you are greeted with a greeting, greet [in return] with one better than it or [at least] return it [in a like manner]. Indeed, Allah is ever, over all things, an Accountant.
580 4 The Women 87 Allah - there is no deity except Him. He will surely assemble you for [account on] the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt. And who is more truthful than Allah in statement.
581 4 The Women 88 What is [the matter] with you [that you are] two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them fall back [into error and disbelief] for what they earned. Do you wish to guide those whom Allah has sent astray? And he whom Allah sends astray - never will you find for him a way [of guidance].
582 4 The Women 89 They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.
583 4 The Women 90 Except for those who take refuge with a people between yourselves and whom is a treaty or those who come to you, their hearts strained at [the prospect of] fighting you or fighting their own people. And if Allah had willed, He could have given them power over you, and they would have fought you. So if they remove themselves from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has not made for you a cause [for fighting] against them.
584 4 The Women 91 You will find others who wish to obtain security from you and [to] obtain security from their people. Every time they are returned to [the influence of] disbelief, they fall back into it. So if they do not withdraw from you or offer you peace or restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you overtake them. And those - We have made for you against them a clear authorization.
585 4 The Women 92 And never is it for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake. And whoever kills a believer by mistake - then the freeing of a believing slave and a compensation payment presented to the deceased's family [is required] unless they give [up their right as] charity. But if the deceased was from a people at war with you and he was a believer - then [only] the freeing of a believing slave; and if he was from a people with whom you have a treaty - then a compensation payment presented to his family and the freeing of a believing slave. And whoever does not find [one or cannot afford to buy one] - then [instead], a fast for two months consecutively, [seeking] acceptance of repentance from Allah. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
586 4 The Women 93 But whoever kills a believer intentionally - his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment.
587 4 The Women 94 O you who have believed, when you go forth [to fight] in the cause of Allah, investigate; and do not say to one who gives you [a greeting of] peace "You are not a believer," aspiring for the goods of worldly life; for with Allah are many acquisitions. You [yourselves] were like that before; then Allah conferred His favor upon you, so investigate. Indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.
588 4 The Women 95 Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] - other than the disabled - and the mujahideen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahideen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward -
589 4 The Women 96 Degrees [of high position] from Him and forgiveness and mercy. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
590 4 The Women 97 Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves - [the angels] will say, "In what [condition] were you?" They will say, "We were oppressed in the land." The angels will say, "Was not the earth of Allah spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?" For those, their refuge is Hell - and evil it is as a destination.
591 4 The Women 98 Except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan nor are they directed to a way -
592 4 The Women 99 For those it is expected that Allah will pardon them, and Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving.
593 4 The Women 100 And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many [alternative] locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him - his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
594 4 The Women 101 And when you travel throughout the land, there is no blame upon you for shortening the prayer, [especially] if you fear that those who disbelieve may disrupt [or attack] you. Indeed, the disbelievers are ever to you a clear enemy.
595 4 The Women 102 And when you are among them and lead them in prayer, let a group of them stand [in prayer] with you and let them carry their arms. And when they have prostrated, let them be [in position] behind you and have the other group come forward which has not [yet] prayed and let them pray with you, taking precaution and carrying their arms. Those who disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one [single] attack. But there is no blame upon you, if you are troubled by rain or are ill, for putting down your arms, but take precaution. Indeed, Allah has prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.
596 4 The Women 103 And when you have completed the prayer, remember Allah standing, sitting, or [lying] on your sides. But when you become secure, re-establish [regular] prayer. Indeed, prayer has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times.
597 4 The Women 104 And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering - so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they expect not. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
598 4 The Women 105 Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth so you may judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you. And do not be for the deceitful an advocate.
599 4 The Women 106 And seek forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
600 4 The Women 107 And do not argue on behalf of those who deceive themselves. Indeed, Allah loves not one who is a habitually sinful deceiver.
601 4 The Women 108 They conceal [their evil intentions and deeds] from the people, but they cannot conceal [them] from Allah, and He is with them [in His knowledge] when they spend the night in such as He does not accept of speech. And ever is Allah, of what they do, encompassing.
602 4 The Women 109 Here you are - those who argue on their behalf in [this] worldly life - but who will argue with Allah for them on the Day of Resurrection, or who will [then] be their representative?
603 4 The Women 110 And whoever does a wrong or wrongs himself but then seeks forgiveness of Allah will find Allah Forgiving and Merciful.
604 4 The Women 111 And whoever commits a sin only earns it against himself. And Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
605 4 The Women 112 But whoever earns an offense or a sin and then blames it on an innocent [person] has taken upon himself a slander and manifest sin.
606 4 The Women 113 And if it was not for the favor of Allah upon you, [O Muhammad], and His mercy, a group of them would have determined to mislead you. But they do not mislead except themselves, and they will not harm you at all. And Allah has revealed to you the Book and wisdom and has taught you that which you did not know. And ever has the favor of Allah upon you been great.
607 4 The Women 114 No good is there in much of their private conversation, except for those who enjoin charity or that which is right or conciliation between people. And whoever does that seeking means to the approval of Allah - then We are going to give him a great reward.
608 4 The Women 115 And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers - We will give him what he has taken and drive him into Hell, and evil it is as a destination.
609 4 The Women 116 Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray.
610 4 The Women 117 They call upon instead of Him none but female [deities], and they [actually] call upon none but a rebellious Satan.
611 4 The Women 118 Whom Allah has cursed. For he had said, "I will surely take from among Your servants a specific portion.
612 4 The Women 119 And I will mislead them, and I will arouse in them [sinful] desires, and I will command them so they will slit the ears of cattle, and I will command them so they will change the creation of Allah." And whoever takes Satan as an ally instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss.
613 4 The Women 120 Satan promises them and arouses desire in them. But Satan does not promise them except delusion.
614 4 The Women 121 The refuge of those will be Hell, and they will not find from it an escape.
615 4 The Women 122 But the ones who believe and do righteous deeds - We will admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. [It is] the promise of Allah, [which is] truth, and who is more truthful than Allah in statement.
616 4 The Women 123 Paradise is not [obtained] by your wishful thinking nor by that of the People of the Scripture. Whoever does a wrong will be recompensed for it, and he will not find besides Allah a protector or a helper.
617 4 The Women 124 And whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while being a believer - those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged, [even as much as] the speck on a date seed.
618 4 The Women 125 And who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while being a doer of good and follows the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth? And Allah took Abraham as an intimate friend.
619 4 The Women 126 And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And ever is Allah, of all things, encompassing.
620 4 The Women 127 And they request from you, [O Muhammad], a [legal] ruling concerning women. Say, "Allah gives you a ruling about them and [about] what has been recited to you in the Book concerning the orphan girls to whom you do not give what is decreed for them - and [yet] you desire to marry them - and concerning the oppressed among children and that you maintain for orphans [their rights] in justice." And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is ever Knowing of it.
621 4 The Women 128 And if a woman fears from her husband contempt or evasion, there is no sin upon them if they make terms of settlement between them - and settlement is best. And present in [human] souls is stinginess. But if you do good and fear Allah - then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.
622 4 The Women 129 And you will never be able to be equal [in feeling] between wives, even if you should strive [to do so]. So do not incline completely [toward one] and leave another hanging. And if you amend [your affairs] and fear Allah - then indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
623 4 The Women 130 But if they separate [by divorce], Allah will enrich each [of them] from His abundance. And ever is Allah Encompassing and Wise.
624 4 The Women 131 And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And We have instructed those who were given the Scripture before you and yourselves to fear Allah. But if you disbelieve - then to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And ever is Allah Free of need and Praiseworthy.
625 4 The Women 132 And to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.
626 4 The Women 133 If He wills, He can do away with you, O people, and bring others [in your place]. And ever is Allah competent to do that.
627 4 The Women 134 Whoever desires the reward of this world - then with Allah is the reward of this world and the Hereafter. And ever is Allah Hearing and Seeing.
628 4 The Women 135 O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.
629 4 The Women 136 O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.
630 4 The Women 137 Indeed, those who have believed then disbelieved, then believed, then disbelieved, and then increased in disbelief - never will Allah forgive them, nor will He guide them to a way.
631 4 The Women 138 Give tidings to the hypocrites that there is for them a painful punishment -
632 4 The Women 139 Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honor [through power]? But indeed, honor belongs to Allah entirely.
633 4 The Women 140 And it has already come down to you in the Book that when you hear the verses of Allah [recited], they are denied [by them] and ridiculed; so do not sit with them until they enter into another conversation. Indeed, you would then be like them. Indeed Allah will gather the hypocrites and disbelievers in Hell all together -
634 4 The Women 141 Those who wait [and watch] you. Then if you gain a victory from Allah, they say, "Were we not with you?" But if the disbelievers have a success, they say [to them], "Did we not gain the advantage over you, but we protected you from the believers?" Allah will judge between [all of] you on the Day of Resurrection, and never will Allah give the disbelievers over the believers a way [to overcome them].
635 4 The Women 142 Indeed, the hypocrites [think to] deceive Allah, but He is deceiving them. And when they stand for prayer, they stand lazily, showing [themselves to] the people and not remembering Allah except a little,
636 4 The Women 143 Wavering between them, [belonging] neither to the believers nor to the disbelievers. And whoever Allah leaves astray - never will you find for him a way.
637 4 The Women 144 O you who have believed, do not take the disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do you wish to give Allah against yourselves a clear case?
638 4 The Women 145 Indeed, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire - and never will you find for them a helper -
639 4 The Women 146 Except for those who repent, correct themselves, hold fast to Allah, and are sincere in their religion for Allah, for those will be with the believers. And Allah is going to give the believers a great reward.
640 4 The Women 147 What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing.
641 4 The Women 148 Allah does not like the public mention of evil except by one who has been wronged. And ever is Allah Hearing and Knowing.
642 4 The Women 149 If [instead] you show [some] good or conceal it or pardon an offense - indeed, Allah is ever Pardoning and Competent.
643 4 The Women 150 Indeed, those who disbelieve in Allah and His messengers and wish to discriminate between Allah and His messengers and say, "We believe in some and disbelieve in others," and wish to adopt a way in between -
644 4 The Women 151 Those are the disbelievers, truly. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.
645 4 The Women 152 But they who believe in Allah and His messengers and do not discriminate between any of them - to those He is going to give their rewards. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.
646 4 The Women 153 The People of the Scripture ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. But they had asked of Moses [even] greater than that and said, "Show us Allah outright," so the thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the calf [for worship] after clear evidences had come to them, and We pardoned that. And We gave Moses a clear authority.
647 4 The Women 154 And We raised over them the mount for [refusal of] their covenant; and We said to them, "Enter the gate bowing humbly", and We said to them, "Do not transgress on the sabbath", and We took from them a solemn covenant.
648 4 The Women 155 And [We cursed them] for their breaking of the covenant and their disbelief in the signs of Allah and their killing of the prophets without right and their saying, "Our hearts are wrapped". Rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.
649 4 The Women 156 And [We cursed them] for their disbelief and their saying against Mary a great slander,
650 4 The Women 157 And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.
651 4 The Women 158 Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.
652 4 The Women 159 And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness.
653 4 The Women 160 For wrongdoing on the part of the Jews, We made unlawful for them [certain] good foods which had been lawful to them, and for their averting from the way of Allah many [people],
654 4 The Women 161 And [for] their taking of usury while they had been forbidden from it, and their consuming of the people's wealth unjustly. And we have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
655 4 The Women 162 But those firm in knowledge among them and the believers believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you. And the establishers of prayer [especially] and the givers of zakah and the believers in Allah and the Last Day - those We will give a great reward.
656 4 The Women 163 Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the book [of Psalms].
657 4 The Women 164 And [We sent] messengers about whom We have related [their stories] to you before and messengers about whom We have not related to you. And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech.
658 4 The Women 165 [We sent] messengers as bringers of good tidings and warners so that mankind will have no argument against Allah after the messengers. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.
659 4 The Women 166 But Allah bears witness to that which He has revealed to you. He has sent it down with His knowledge, and the angels bear witness [as well]. And sufficient is Allah as Witness.
660 4 The Women 167 Indeed, those who disbelieve and avert [people] from the way of Allah have certainly gone far astray.
661 4 The Women 168 Indeed, those who disbelieve and commit wrong [or injustice] - never will Allah forgive them, nor will He guide them to a path.
662 4 The Women 169 Except the path of Hell; they will abide therein forever. And that, for Allah, is [always] easy.
663 4 The Women 170 O Mankind, the Messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord, so believe; it is better for you. But if you disbelieve - then indeed, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth. And ever is Allah Knowing and Wise.
664 4 The Women 171 O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.
665 4 The Women 172 Never would the Messiah disdain to be a servant of Allah, nor would the angels near [to Him]. And whoever disdains His worship and is arrogant - He will gather them to Himself all together.
666 4 The Women 173 And as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, He will give them in full their rewards and grant them extra from His bounty. But as for those who disdained and were arrogant, He will punish them with a painful punishment, and they will not find for themselves besides Allah any protector or helper.
667 4 The Women 174 O mankind, there has come to you a conclusive proof from your Lord, and We have sent down to you a clear light.
668 4 The Women 175 So those who believe in Allah and hold fast to Him - He will admit them to mercy from Himself and bounty and guide them to Himself on a straight path.
669 4 The Women 176 They request from you a [legal] ruling. Say, "Allah gives you a ruling concerning one having neither descendants nor ascendants [as heirs]." If a man dies, leaving no child but [only] a sister, she will have half of what he left. And he inherits from her if she [dies and] has no child. But if there are two sisters [or more], they will have two-thirds of what he left. If there are both brothers and sisters, the male will have the share of two females. Allah makes clear to you [His law], lest you go astray. And Allah is Knowing of all things.
670 5 The Table 1 O you who have believed, fulfill [all] contracts. Lawful for you are the animals of grazing livestock except for that which is recited to you [in this Qur'an] - hunting not being permitted while you are in the state of ihram. Indeed, Allah ordains what He intends.
671 5 The Table 2 O you who have believed, do not violate the rites of Allah or [the sanctity of] the sacred month or [neglect the marking of] the sacrificial animals and garlanding [them] or [violate the safety of] those coming to the Sacred House seeking bounty from their Lord and [His] approval. But when you come out of ihram, then [you may] hunt. And do not let the hatred of a people for having obstructed you from al-Masjid al-Haram lead you to transgress. And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.
672 5 The Table 3 Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah, and [those animals] killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by the goring of horns, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you [are able to] slaughter [before its death], and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and [prohibited is] that you seek decision through divining arrows. That is grave disobedience. This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin - then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
673 5 The Table 4 They ask you, [O Muhammad], what has been made lawful for them. Say, "Lawful for you are [all] good foods and [game caught by] what you have trained of hunting animals which you train as Allah has taught you. So eat of what they catch for you, and mention the name of Allah upon it, and fear Allah." Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
674 5 The Table 5 This day [all] good foods have been made lawful, and the food of those who were given the Scripture is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you, when you have given them their due compensation, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse or taking [secret] lovers. And whoever denies the faith - his work has become worthless, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.
675 5 The Table 6 O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful.
676 5 The Table 7 And remember the favor of Allah upon you and His covenant with which He bound you when you said, "We hear and we obey"; and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts.
677 5 The Table 8 O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.
678 5 The Table 9 Allah has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds [that] for them there is forgiveness and great reward.
679 5 The Table 10 But those who disbelieve and deny Our signs - those are the companions of Hellfire.
680 5 The Table 11 O you who have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you when a people determined to extend their hands [in aggression] against you, but He withheld their hands from you; and fear Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely.
681 5 The Table 12 And Allah had already taken a covenant from the Children of Israel, and We delegated from among them twelve leaders. And Allah said, "I am with you. If you establish prayer and give zakah and believe in My messengers and support them and loan Allah a goodly loan, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But whoever of you disbelieves after that has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way."
682 5 The Table 13 So for their breaking of the covenant We cursed them and made their hearts hard. They distort words from their [proper] usages and have forgotten a portion of that of which they were reminded. And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.
683 5 The Table 14 And from those who say, "We are Christians" We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded. So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do.
684 5 The Table 15 O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our Messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much. There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book.
685 5 The Table 16 By which Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darknesses into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path.
686 5 The Table 17 They have certainly disbelieved who say that Allah is Christ, the son of Mary. Say, "Then who could prevent Allah at all if He had intended to destroy Christ, the son of Mary, or his mother or everyone on the earth?" And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them. He creates what He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.
687 5 The Table 18 But the Jews and the Christians say, "We are the children of Allah and His beloved." Say, "Then why does He punish you for your sins?" Rather, you are human beings from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, and to Him is the [final] destination.
688 5 The Table 19 O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our Messenger to make clear to you [the religion] after a period [of suspension] of messengers, lest you say, "There came not to us any bringer of good tidings or a warner." But there has come to you a bringer of good tidings and a warner. And Allah is over all things competent.
689 5 The Table 20 And [mention, O Muhammad], when Moses said to his people, "O my people, remember the favor of Allah upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds.
690 5 The Table 21 O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back [from fighting in Allah 's cause] and [thus] become losers."
691 5 The Table 22 They said, "O Moses, indeed within it is a people of tyrannical strength, and indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it; but if they leave it, then we will enter."
692 5 The Table 23 Said two men from those who feared [to disobey] upon whom Allah had bestowed favor, "Enter upon them through the gate, for when you have entered it, you will be predominant. And upon Allah rely, if you should be believers."
693 5 The Table 24 They said, "O Moses, indeed we will not enter it, ever, as long as they are within it; so go, you and your Lord, and fight. Indeed, we are remaining right here."
694 5 The Table 25 [Moses] said, "My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother, so part us from the defiantly disobedient people."
695 5 The Table 26 [Allah] said, "Then indeed, it is forbidden to them for forty years [in which] they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people."
696 5 The Table 27 And recite to them the story of Adam's two sons, in truth, when they both offered a sacrifice [to Allah], and it was accepted from one of them but was not accepted from the other. Said [the latter], "I will surely kill you." Said [the former], "Indeed, Allah only accepts from the righteous [who fear Him].
697 5 The Table 28 If you should raise your hand against me to kill me - I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds.
698 5 The Table 29 Indeed I want you to obtain [thereby] my sin and your sin so you will be among the companions of the Fire. And that is the recompense of wrongdoers."
699 5 The Table 30 And his soul permitted to him the murder of his brother, so he killed him and became among the losers.
700 5 The Table 31 Then Allah sent a crow searching in the ground to show him how to hide the disgrace of his brother. He said, "O woe to me! Have I failed to be like this crow and hide the body of my brother?" And he became of the regretful.
701 5 The Table 32 Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
702 5 The Table 33 Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,
703 5 The Table 34 Except for those who return [repenting] before you apprehend them. And know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
704 5 The Table 35 O you who have believed, fear Allah and seek the means [of nearness] to Him and strive in His cause that you may succeed.
705 5 The Table 36 Indeed, those who disbelieve - if they should have all that is in the earth and the like of it with it by which to ransom themselves from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection, it will not be accepted from them, and for them is a painful punishment
706 5 The Table 37 They will wish to get out of the Fire, but never are they to emerge therefrom, and for them is an enduring punishment.
707 5 The Table 38 [As for] the thief, the male and the female, amputate their hands in recompense for what they committed as a deterrent [punishment] from Allah. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
708 5 The Table 39 But whoever repents after his wrongdoing and reforms, indeed, Allah will turn to him in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
709 5 The Table 40 Do you not know that to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth? He punishes whom He wills and forgives whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent.
710 5 The Table 41 O Messenger, let them not grieve you who hasten into disbelief of those who say, "We believe" with their mouths, but their hearts believe not, and from among the Jews. [They are] avid listeners to falsehood, listening to another people who have not come to you. They distort words beyond their [proper] usages, saying "If you are given this, take it; but if you are not given it, then beware." But he for whom Allah intends fitnah - never will you possess [power to do] for him a thing against Allah. Those are the ones for whom Allah does not intend to purify their hearts. For them in this world is disgrace, and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.
711 5 The Table 42 [They are] avid listeners to falsehood, devourers of [what is] unlawful. So if they come to you, [O Muhammad], judge between them or turn away from them. And if you turn away from them - never will they harm you at all. And if you judge, judge between them with justice. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.
712 5 The Table 43 But how is it that they come to you for judgement while they have the Torah, in which is the judgement of Allah? Then they turn away, [even] after that; but those are not [in fact] believers.
713 5 The Table 44 Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which was guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah, and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers.
714 5 The Table 45 And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is legal retribution. But whoever gives [up his right as] charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
715 5 The Table 46 And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.
716 5 The Table 47 And let the People of the Gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.
717 5 The Table 48 And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.
718 5 The Table 49 And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away - then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient.
719 5 The Table 50 Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].
720 5 The Table 51 O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.
721 5 The Table 52 So you see those in whose hearts is disease hastening into [association with] them, saying, "We are afraid a misfortune may strike us." But perhaps Allah will bring conquest or a decision from Him, and they will become, over what they have been concealing within themselves, regretful.
722 5 The Table 53 And those who believe will say, "Are these the ones who swore by Allah their strongest oaths that indeed they were with you?" Their deeds have become worthless, and they have become losers.
723 5 The Table 54 O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
724 5 The Table 55 Your ally is none but Allah and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed - those who establish prayer and give zakah, and they bow [in worship].
725 5 The Table 56 And whoever is an ally of Allah and His Messenger and those who have believed - indeed, the party of Allah - they will be the predominant.
726 5 The Table 57 O you who have believed, take not those who have taken your religion in ridicule and amusement among the ones who were given the Scripture before you nor the disbelievers as allies. And fear Allah, if you should [truly] be believers.
727 5 The Table 58 And when you call to prayer, they take it in ridicule and amusement. That is because they are a people who do not use reason.
728 5 The Table 59 Say, "O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in Allah and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?"
729 5 The Table 60 Say, "Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way."
730 5 The Table 61 And when they come to you, they say, "We believe." But they have entered with disbelief [in their hearts], and they have certainly left with it. And Allah is most knowing of what they were concealing.
731 5 The Table 62 And you see many of them hastening into sin and aggression and the devouring of [what is] unlawful. How wretched is what they have been doing.
732 5 The Table 63 Why do the rabbis and religious scholars not forbid them from saying what is sinful and devouring what is unlawful? How wretched is what they have been practicing.
733 5 The Table 64 And the Jews say, "The hand of Allah is chained." Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say. Rather, both His hands are extended; He spends however He wills. And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. And We have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war [against you], Allah extinguished it. And they strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters.
734 5 The Table 65 And if only the People of the Scripture had believed and feared Allah, We would have removed from them their misdeeds and admitted them to Gardens of Pleasure.
735 5 The Table 66 And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them - evil is that which they do.
736 5 The Table 67 O Messenger, announce that which has been revealed to you from your Lord, and if you do not, then you have not conveyed His message. And Allah will protect you from the people. Indeed, Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
737 5 The Table 68 Say, "O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord." And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
738 5 The Table 69 Indeed, those who have believed [in Prophet Muhammad] and those [before Him] who were Jews or Sabeans or Christians - those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness - no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
739 5 The Table 70 We had already taken the covenant of the Children of Israel and had sent to them messengers. Whenever there came to them a messenger with what their souls did not desire, a party [of messengers] they denied, and another party they killed.
740 5 The Table 71 And they thought there would be no [resulting] punishment, so they became blind and deaf. Then Allah turned to them in forgiveness; then [again] many of them became blind and deaf. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
741 5 The Table 72 They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.
742 5 The Table 73 They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
743 5 The Table 74 So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
744 5 The Table 75 The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded.
745 5 The Table 76 Say, "Do you worship besides Allah that which holds for you no [power of] harm or benefit while it is Allah who is the Hearing, the Knowing?"
746 5 The Table 77 Say, "O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the soundness of the way."
747 5 The Table 78 Cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of David and of Jesus, the son of Mary. That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.
748 5 The Table 79 They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did. How wretched was that which they were doing.
749 5 The Table 80 You see many of them becoming allies of those who disbelieved. How wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves in that Allah has become angry with them, and in the punishment they will abide eternally.
750 5 The Table 81 And if they had believed in Allah and the Prophet and in what was revealed to him, they would not have taken them as allies; but many of them are defiantly disobedient.
751 5 The Table 82 You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, "We are Christians." That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.
752 5 The Table 83 And when they hear what has been revealed to the Messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of what they have recognized of the truth. They say, "Our Lord, we have believed, so register us among the witnesses.
753 5 The Table 84 And why should we not believe in Allah and what has come to us of the truth? And we aspire that our Lord will admit us [to Paradise] with the righteous people."
754 5 The Table 85 So Allah rewarded them for what they said with gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. And that is the reward of doers of good.
755 5 The Table 86 But those who disbelieved and denied Our signs - they are the companions of Hellfire.
756 5 The Table 87 O you who have believed, do not prohibit the good things which Allah has made lawful to you and do not transgress. Indeed, Allah does not like transgressors.
757 5 The Table 88 And eat of what Allah has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And fear Allah, in whom you are believers.
758 5 The Table 89 Allah will not impose blame upon you for what is meaningless in your oaths, but He will impose blame upon you for [breaking] what you intended of oaths. So its expiation is the feeding of ten needy people from the average of that which you feed your [own] families or clothing them or the freeing of a slave. But whoever cannot find [or afford it] - then a fast of three days [is required]. That is the expiation for oaths when you have sworn. But guard your oaths. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be grateful.
759 5 The Table 90 O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful.
760 5 The Table 91 Satan only wants to cause between you animosity and hatred through intoxicants and gambling and to avert you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So will you not desist?
761 5 The Table 92 And obey Allah and obey the Messenger and beware. And if you turn away - then know that upon Our Messenger is only [the responsibility for] clear notification.
762 5 The Table 93 There is not upon those who believe and do righteousness [any] blame concerning what they have eaten [in the past] if they [now] fear Allah and believe and do righteous deeds, and then fear Allah and believe, and then fear Allah and do good; and Allah loves the doers of good.
763 5 The Table 94 O you who have believed, Allah will surely test you through something of the game that your hands and spears [can] reach, that Allah may make evident those who fear Him unseen. And whoever transgresses after that - for him is a painful punishment.
764 5 The Table 95 O you who have believed, do not kill game while you are in the state of ihram. And whoever of you kills it intentionally - the penalty is an equivalent from sacrificial animals to what he killed, as judged by two just men among you as an offering [to Allah] delivered to the Ka'bah, or an expiation: the feeding of needy people or the equivalent of that in fasting, that he may taste the consequence of his deed. Allah has pardoned what is past; but whoever returns [to violation], then Allah will take retribution from him. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution.
765 5 The Table 96 Lawful to you is game from the sea and its food as provision for you and the travelers, but forbidden to you is game from the land as long as you are in the state of ihram. And fear Allah to whom you will be gathered.
766 5 The Table 97 Allah has made the Ka'bah, the Sacred House, standing for the people and [has sanctified] the sacred months and the sacrificial animals and the garlands [by which they are identified]. That is so you may know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and what is in the earth and that Allah is Knowing of all things.
767 5 The Table 98 Know that Allah is severe in penalty and that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
768 5 The Table 99 Not upon the Messenger is [responsibility] except [for] notification. And Allah knows whatever you reveal and whatever you conceal.
769 5 The Table 100 Say, "Not equal are the evil and the good, although the abundance of evil might impress you." So fear Allah, O you of understanding, that you may be successful.
770 5 The Table 101 O you who have believed, do not ask about things which, if they are shown to you, will distress you. But if you ask about them while the Qur'an is being revealed, they will be shown to you. Allah has pardoned that which is past; and Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.
771 5 The Table 102 A people asked such [questions] before you; then they became thereby disbelievers.
772 5 The Table 103 Allah has not appointed [such innovations as] bahirah or sa'ibah or wasilah or ham. But those who disbelieve invent falsehood about Allah, and most of them do not reason.
773 5 The Table 104 And when it is said to them, "Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger," they say, "Sufficient for us is that upon which we found our fathers." Even though their fathers knew nothing, nor were they guided?
774 5 The Table 105 O you who have believed, upon you is [responsibility for] yourselves. Those who have gone astray will not harm you when you have been guided. To Allah is you return all together; then He will inform you of what you used to do.
775 5 The Table 106 O you who have believed, testimony [should be taken] among you when death approaches one of you at the time of bequest - [that of] two just men from among you or two others from outside if you are traveling through the land and the disaster of death should strike you. Detain them after the prayer and let them both swear by Allah if you doubt [their testimony, saying], "We will not exchange our oath for a price, even if he should be a near relative, and we will not withhold the testimony of Allah. Indeed, we would then be of the sinful."
776 5 The Table 107 But if it is found that those two were guilty of perjury, let two others stand in their place [who are] foremost [in claim] from those who have a lawful right. And let them swear by Allah, "Our testimony is truer than their testimony, and we have not transgressed. Indeed, we would then be of the wrongdoers."
777 5 The Table 108 That is more likely that they will give testimony according to its [true] objective, or [at least] they would fear that [other] oaths might be taken after their oaths. And fear Allah and listen; and Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.
778 5 The Table 109 [Be warned of] the Day when Allah will assemble the messengers and say, "What was the response you received?" They will say, "We have no knowledge. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen"
779 5 The Table 110 [The Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, "This is not but obvious magic."
780 5 The Table 111 And [remember] when I inspired to the disciples, "Believe in Me and in My messenger Jesus." They said, "We have believed, so bear witness that indeed we are Muslims [in submission to Allah]."
781 5 The Table 112 [And remember] when the disciples said, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, can your Lord send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven? [Jesus] said," Fear Allah, if you should be believers."
782 5 The Table 113 They said, "We wish to eat from it and let our hearts be reassured and know that you have been truthful to us and be among its witnesses."
783 5 The Table 114 Said Jesus, the son of Mary, "O Allah, our Lord, send down to us a table [spread with food] from the heaven to be for us a festival for the first of us and the last of us and a sign from You. And provide for us, and You are the best of providers."
784 5 The Table 115 Allah said, "Indeed, I will sent it down to you, but whoever disbelieves afterwards from among you - then indeed will I punish him with a punishment by which I have not punished anyone among the worlds."
785 5 The Table 116 And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, 'Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?'" He will say, "Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.
786 5 The Table 117 I said not to them except what You commanded me - to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness.
787 5 The Table 118 If You should punish them - indeed they are Your servants; but if You forgive them - indeed it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
788 5 The Table 119 Allah will say, "This is the Day when the truthful will benefit from their truthfulness." For them are gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever, Allah being pleased with them, and they with Him. That is the great attainment.
789 5 The Table 120 To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is within them. And He is over all things competent.
790 6 The Cattle 1 [All] praise is [due] to Allah, who created the heavens and the earth and made the darkness and the light. Then those who disbelieve equate [others] with their Lord.
791 6 The Cattle 2 It is He who created you from clay and then decreed a term and a specified time [known] to Him; then [still] you are in dispute.
792 6 The Cattle 3 And He is Allah, [the only deity] in the heavens and the earth. He knows your secret and what you make public, and He knows that which you earn.
793 6 The Cattle 4 And no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord except that they turn away therefrom.
794 6 The Cattle 5 For they had denied the truth when it came to them, but there is going to reach them the news of what they used to ridicule.
795 6 The Cattle 6 Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them which We had established upon the earth as We have not established you? And We sent [rain from] the sky upon them in showers and made rivers flow beneath them; then We destroyed them for their sins and brought forth after them a generation of others.
796 6 The Cattle 7 And even if We had sent down to you, [O Muhammad], a written scripture on a page and they touched it with their hands, the disbelievers would say, "This is not but obvious magic."
797 6 The Cattle 8 And they say, "Why was there not sent down to him an angel?" But if We had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided; then they would not be reprieved.
798 6 The Cattle 9 And if We had made him an angel, We would have made him [appear as] a man, and We would have covered them with that in which they cover themselves.
799 6 The Cattle 10 And already were messengers ridiculed before you, but those who mocked them were enveloped by that which they used to ridicule.
800 6 The Cattle 11 Say, "Travel through the land; then observe how was the end of the deniers."
801 6 The Cattle 12 Say, "To whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth?" Say, "To Allah." He has decreed upon Himself mercy. He will surely assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt. Those who will lose themselves [that Day] do not believe.
802 6 The Cattle 13 And to Him belongs that which reposes by night and by day, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
803 6 The Cattle 14 Say, "Is it other than Allah I should take as a protector, Creator of the heavens and the earth, while it is He who feeds and is not fed?" Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, I have been commanded to be the first [among you] who submit [to Allah] and [was commanded], 'Do not ever be of the polytheists.' "
804 6 The Cattle 15 Say, "Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day."
805 6 The Cattle 16 He from whom it is averted that Day - [Allah] has granted him mercy. And that is the clear attainment.
806 6 The Cattle 17 And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him. And if He touches you with good - then He is over all things competent.
807 6 The Cattle 18 And He is the subjugator over His servants. And He is the Wise, the Acquainted [with all].
808 6 The Cattle 19 Say, "What thing is greatest in testimony?" Say, "Allah is witness between me and you. And this Qur'an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches. Do you [truly] testify that with Allah there are other deities?" Say, "I will not testify [with you]." Say, "Indeed, He is but one God, and indeed, I am free of what you associate [with Him]."
809 6 The Cattle 20 Those to whom We have given the Scripture recognize it as they recognize their [own] sons. Those who will lose themselves [in the Hereafter] do not believe.
810 6 The Cattle 21 And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies His verses? Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.
811 6 The Cattle 22 And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will gather them all together; then We will say to those who associated others with Allah, "Where are your 'partners' that you used to claim [with Him]?"
812 6 The Cattle 23 Then there will be no [excuse upon] examination except they will say, "By Allah, our Lord, we were not those who associated."
813 6 The Cattle 24 See how they will lie about themselves. And lost from them will be what they used to invent.
814 6 The Cattle 25 And among them are those who listen to you, but We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. Even when they come to you arguing with you, those who disbelieve say, "This is not but legends of the former peoples."
815 6 The Cattle 26 And they prevent [others] from him and are [themselves] remote from him. And they do not destroy except themselves, but they perceive [it] not.
816 6 The Cattle 27 If you could but see when they are made to stand before the Fire and will say, "Oh, would that we could be returned [to life on earth] and not deny the signs of our Lord and be among the believers."
817 6 The Cattle 28 But what they concealed before has [now] appeared to them. And even if they were returned, they would return to that which they were forbidden; and indeed, they are liars.
818 6 The Cattle 29 And they say, "There is none but our worldly life, and we will not be resurrected."
819 6 The Cattle 30 If you could but see when they will be made to stand before their Lord. He will say, "Is this not the truth?" They will say, "Yes, by our Lord." He will [then] say, "So taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve."
820 6 The Cattle 31 Those will have lost who deny the meeting with Allah, until when the Hour [of resurrection] comes upon them unexpectedly, they will say, "Oh, [how great is] our regret over what we neglected concerning it," while they bear their burdens on their backs. Unquestionably, evil is that which they bear.
821 6 The Cattle 32 And the worldly life is not but amusement and diversion; but the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah, so will you not reason?
822 6 The Cattle 33 We know that you, [O Muhammad], are saddened by what they say. And indeed, they do not call you untruthful, but it is the verses of Allah that the wrongdoers reject.
823 6 The Cattle 34 And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over [the effects of] denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the [previous] messengers.
824 6 The Cattle 35 And if their evasion is difficult for you, then if you are able to seek a tunnel into the earth or a stairway into the sky to bring them a sign, [then do so]. But if Allah had willed, He would have united them upon guidance. So never be of the ignorant.
825 6 The Cattle 36 Only those who hear will respond. But the dead - Allah will resurrect them; then to Him they will be returned.
826 6 The Cattle 37 And they say, "Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?" Say, "Indeed, Allah is Able to send down a sign, but most of them do not know."
827 6 The Cattle 38 And there is no creature on [or within] the earth or bird that flies with its wings except [that they are] communities like you. We have not neglected in the Register a thing. Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.
828 6 The Cattle 39 But those who deny Our verses are deaf and dumb within darknesses. Whomever Allah wills - He leaves astray; and whomever He wills - He puts him on a straight path.
829 6 The Cattle 40 Say, "Have you considered: if there came to you the punishment of Allah or there came to you the Hour - is it other than Allah you would invoke, if you should be truthful?"
830 6 The Cattle 41 No, it is Him [alone] you would invoke, and He would remove that for which you invoked Him if He willed, and you would forget what you associate [with Him].
831 6 The Cattle 42 And We have already sent [messengers] to nations before you, [O Muhammad]; then We seized them with poverty and hardship that perhaps they might humble themselves [to Us].
832 6 The Cattle 43 Then why, when Our punishment came to them, did they not humble themselves? But their hearts became hardened, and Satan made attractive to them that which they were doing.
833 6 The Cattle 44 So when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We opened to them the doors of every [good] thing until, when they rejoiced in that which they were given, We seized them suddenly, and they were [then] in despair.
834 6 The Cattle 45 So the people that committed wrong were eliminated. And praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
835 6 The Cattle 46 Say, "Have you considered: if Allah should take away your hearing and your sight and set a seal upon your hearts, which deity other than Allah could bring them [back] to you?" Look how we diversify the verses; then they [still] turn away.
836 6 The Cattle 47 Say, "Have you considered: if the punishment of Allah should come to you unexpectedly or manifestly, will any be destroyed but the wrongdoing people?"
837 6 The Cattle 48 And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. So whoever believes and reforms - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
838 6 The Cattle 49 But those who deny Our verses - the punishment will touch them for their defiant disobedience.
839 6 The Cattle 50 Say, [O Muhammad], "I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of Allah or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me." Say, "Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Then will you not give thought?"
840 6 The Cattle 51 And warn by the Qur'an those who fear that they will be gathered before their Lord - for them besides Him will be no protector and no intercessor - that they might become righteous.
841 6 The Cattle 52 And do not send away those who call upon their Lord morning and afternoon, seeking His countenance. Not upon you is anything of their account and not upon them is anything of your account. So were you to send them away, you would [then] be of the wrongdoers.
842 6 The Cattle 53 And thus We have tried some of them through others that the disbelievers might say, "Is it these whom Allah has favored among us?" Is not Allah most knowing of those who are grateful?
843 6 The Cattle 54 And when those come to you who believe in Our verses, say, "Peace be upon you. Your Lord has decreed upon Himself mercy: that any of you who does wrong out of ignorance and then repents after that and corrects himself - indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful."
844 6 The Cattle 55 And thus do We detail the verses, and [thus] the way of the criminals will become evident.
845 6 The Cattle 56 Say, "Indeed, I have been forbidden to worship those you invoke besides Allah." Say, "I will not follow your desires, for I would then have gone astray, and I would not be of the [rightly] guided."
846 6 The Cattle 57 Say, "Indeed, I am on clear evidence from my Lord, and you have denied it. I do not have that for which you are impatient. The decision is only for Allah. He relates the truth, and He is the best of deciders."
847 6 The Cattle 58 Say, "If I had that for which you are impatient, the matter would have been decided between me and you, but Allah is most knowing of the wrongdoers."
848 6 The Cattle 59 And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.
849 6 The Cattle 60 And it is He who takes your souls by night and knows what you have committed by day. Then He revives you therein that a specified term may be fulfilled. Then to Him will be your return; then He will inform you about what you used to do.
850 6 The Cattle 61 And He is the subjugator over His servants, and He sends over you guardian-angels until, when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they do not fail [in their duties].
851 6 The Cattle 62 Then they His servants are returned to Allah, their true Lord. Unquestionably, His is the judgement, and He is the swiftest of accountants.
852 6 The Cattle 63 Say, "Who rescues you from the darknesses of the land and sea [when] you call upon Him imploring [aloud] and privately, 'If He should save us from this [crisis], we will surely be among the thankful.' "
853 6 The Cattle 64 Say, "It is Allah who saves you from it and from every distress; then you [still] associate others with Him."
854 6 The Cattle 65 Say, "He is the [one] Able to send upon you affliction from above you or from beneath your feet or to confuse you [so you become] sects and make you taste the violence of one another." Look how We diversify the signs that they might understand.
855 6 The Cattle 66 But your people have denied it while it is the truth. Say, "I am not over you a manager."
856 6 The Cattle 67 For every happening is a finality; and you are going to know.
857 6 The Cattle 68 And when you see those who engage in [offensive] discourse concerning Our verses, then turn away from them until they enter into another conversation. And if Satan should cause you to forget, then do not remain after the reminder with the wrongdoing people.
858 6 The Cattle 69 And those who fear Allah are not held accountable for the disbelievers at all, but [only for] a reminder - that perhaps they will fear Him.
859 6 The Cattle 70 And leave those who take their religion as amusement and diversion and whom the worldly life has deluded. But remind with the Qur'an, lest a soul be given up to destruction for what it earned; it will have other than Allah no protector and no intercessor. And if it should offer every compensation, it would not be taken from it. Those are the ones who are given to destruction for what they have earned. For them will be a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve.
860 6 The Cattle 71 Say, "Shall we invoke instead of Allah that which neither benefits us nor harms us and be turned back on our heels after Allah has guided us? [We would then be] like one whom the devils enticed [to wander] upon the earth confused, [while] he has companions inviting him to guidance, [calling], 'Come to us.' " Say, "Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance; and we have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds.
861 6 The Cattle 72 And to establish prayer and fear Him." And it is He to whom you will be gathered.
862 6 The Cattle 73 And it is He who created the heavens and earth in truth. And the day He says, "Be," and it is, His word is the truth. And His is the dominion [on] the Day the Horn is blown. [He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed; and He is the Wise, the Acquainted.
863 6 The Cattle 74 And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham said to his father Azar, "Do you take idols as deities? Indeed, I see you and your people to be in manifest error."
864 6 The Cattle 75 And thus did We show Abraham the realm of the heavens and the earth that he would be among the certain [in faith]
865 6 The Cattle 76 So when the night covered him [with darkness], he saw a star. He said, "This is my lord." But when it set, he said, "I like not those that disappear."
866 6 The Cattle 77 And when he saw the moon rising, he said, "This is my lord." But when it set, he said, "Unless my Lord guides me, I will surely be among the people gone astray."
867 6 The Cattle 78 And when he saw the sun rising, he said, "This is my lord; this is greater." But when it set, he said, "O my people, indeed I am free from what you associate with Allah.
868 6 The Cattle 79 Indeed, I have turned my face toward He who created the heavens and the earth, inclining toward truth, and I am not of those who associate others with Allah."
869 6 The Cattle 80 And his people argued with him. He said, "Do you argue with me concerning Allah while He has guided me? And I fear not what you associate with Him [and will not be harmed] unless my Lord should will something. My Lord encompasses all things in knowledge; then will you not remember?
870 6 The Cattle 81 And how should I fear what you associate while you do not fear that you have associated with Allah that for which He has not sent down to you any authority? So which of the two parties has more right to security, if you should know?
871 6 The Cattle 82 They who believe and do not mix their belief with injustice - those will have security, and they are [rightly] guided.
872 6 The Cattle 83 And that was Our [conclusive] argument which We gave Abraham against his people. We raise by degrees whom We will. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing.
873 6 The Cattle 84 And We gave to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - all [of them] We guided. And Noah, We guided before; and among his descendants, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the doers of good.
874 6 The Cattle 85 And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elias - and all were of the righteous.
875 6 The Cattle 86 And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot - and all [of them] We preferred over the worlds.
876 6 The Cattle 87 And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers - and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.
877 6 The Cattle 88 That is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whomever He wills of His servants. But if they had associated others with Allah, then worthless for them would be whatever they were doing.
878 6 The Cattle 89 Those are the ones to whom We gave the Scripture and authority and prophethood. But if the disbelievers deny it, then We have entrusted it to a people who are not therein disbelievers.
879 6 The Cattle 90 Those are the ones whom Allah has guided, so from their guidance take an example. Say, "I ask of you for this message no payment. It is not but a reminder for the worlds."
880 6 The Cattle 91 And they did not appraise Allah with true appraisal when they said, "Allah did not reveal to a human being anything." Say, "Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not - neither you nor your fathers." Say, "Allah [revealed it]." Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.
881 6 The Cattle 92 And this is a Book which We have sent down, blessed and confirming what was before it, that you may warn the Mother of Cities and those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are maintaining their prayers.
882 6 The Cattle 93 And who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah or says, "It has been inspired to me," while nothing has been inspired to him, and one who says, "I will reveal [something] like what Allah revealed." And if you could but see when the wrongdoers are in the overwhelming pangs of death while the angels extend their hands, [saying], "Discharge your souls! Today you will be awarded the punishment of [extreme] humiliation for what you used to say against Allah other than the truth and [that] you were, toward His verses, being arrogant."
883 6 The Cattle 94 [It will be said to them], "And you have certainly come to Us alone as We created you the first time, and you have left whatever We bestowed upon you behind you. And We do not see with you your 'intercessors' which you claimed that they were among you associates [of Allah]. It has [all] been severed between you, and lost from you is what you used to claim."
884 6 The Cattle 95 Indeed, Allah is the cleaver of grain and date seeds. He brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living. That is Allah; so how are you deluded?
885 6 The Cattle 96 [He is] the cleaver of daybreak and has made the night for rest and the sun and moon for calculation. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.
886 6 The Cattle 97 And it is He who placed for you the stars that you may be guided by them through the darknesses of the land and sea. We have detailed the signs for a people who know.
887 6 The Cattle 98 And it is He who produced you from one soul and [gave you] a place of dwelling and of storage. We have detailed the signs for a people who understand.
888 6 The Cattle 99 And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees - of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.
889 6 The Cattle 100 But they have attributed to Allah partners - the jinn, while He has created them - and have fabricated for Him sons and daughters. Exalted is He and high above what they describe
890 6 The Cattle 101 [He is] Originator of the heavens and the earth. How could He have a son when He does not have a companion and He created all things? And He is, of all things, Knowing.
891 6 The Cattle 102 That is Allah, your Lord; there is no deity except Him, the Creator of all things, so worship Him. And He is Disposer of all things.
892 6 The Cattle 103 Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision; and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted.
893 6 The Cattle 104 There has come to you enlightenment from your Lord. So whoever will see does so for [the benefit of] his soul, and whoever is blind [does harm] against it. And [say], "I am not a guardian over you."
894 6 The Cattle 105 And thus do We diversify the verses so the disbelievers will say, "You have studied," and so We may make the Qur'an clear for a people who know.
895 6 The Cattle 106 Follow, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you from your Lord - there is no deity except Him - and turn away from those who associate others with Allah.
896 6 The Cattle 107 But if Allah had willed, they would not have associated. And We have not appointed you over them as a guardian, nor are you a manager over them.
897 6 The Cattle 108 And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they used to do.
898 6 The Cattle 109 And they swear by Allah their strongest oaths that if a sign came to them, they would surely believe in it. Say, "The signs are only with Allah." And what will make you perceive that even if a sign came, they would not believe.
899 6 The Cattle 110 And We will turn away their hearts and their eyes just as they refused to believe in it the first time. And We will leave them in their transgression, wandering blindly.
900 6 The Cattle 111 And even if We had sent down to them the angels [with the message] and the dead spoke to them [of it] and We gathered together every [created] thing in front of them, they would not believe unless Allah should will. But most of them, [of that], are ignorant.
901 6 The Cattle 112 And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy - devils from mankind and jinn, inspiring to one another decorative speech in delusion. But if your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them and that which they invent.
902 6 The Cattle 113 And [it is] so the hearts of those who disbelieve in the Hereafter will incline toward it and that they will be satisfied with it and that they will commit that which they are committing.
903 6 The Cattle 114 [Say], "Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?" And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.
904 6 The Cattle 115 And the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can alter His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
905 6 The Cattle 116 And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah. They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying.
906 6 The Cattle 117 Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who strays from His way, and He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided.
907 6 The Cattle 118 So eat of that [meat] upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned, if you are believers in His verses.
908 6 The Cattle 119 And why should you not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has been mentioned while He has explained in detail to you what He has forbidden you, excepting that to which you are compelled. And indeed do many lead [others] astray through their [own] inclinations without knowledge. Indeed, your Lord - He is most knowing of the transgressors.
909 6 The Cattle 120 And leave what is apparent of sin and what is concealed thereof. Indeed, those who earn [blame for] sin will be recompensed for that which they used to commit.
910 6 The Cattle 121 And do not eat of that upon which the name of Allah has not been mentioned, for indeed, it is grave disobedience. And indeed do the devils inspire their allies [among men] to dispute with you. And if you were to obey them, indeed, you would be associators [of others with Him].
911 6 The Cattle 122 And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in darkness, never to emerge therefrom? Thus it has been made pleasing to the disbelievers that which they were doing.
912 6 The Cattle 123 And thus We have placed within every city the greatest of its criminals to conspire therein. But they conspire not except against themselves, and they perceive [it] not.
913 6 The Cattle 124 And when a sign comes to them, they say, "Never will we believe until we are given like that which was given to the messengers of Allah." Allah is most knowing of where He places His message. There will afflict those who committed crimes debasement before Allah and severe punishment for what they used to conspire.
914 6 The Cattle 125 So whoever Allah wants to guide - He expands his breast to [contain] Islam; and whoever He wants to misguide - He makes his breast tight and constricted as though he were climbing into the sky. Thus does Allah place defilement upon those who do not believe.
915 6 The Cattle 126 And this is the path of your Lord, [leading] straight. We have detailed the verses for a people who remember.
916 6 The Cattle 127 For them will be the Home of Peace with their Lord. And He will be their protecting friend because of what they used to do.
917 6 The Cattle 128 And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when He will gather them together [and say], "O company of jinn, you have [misled] many of mankind." And their allies among mankind will say, "Our Lord, some of us made use of others, and we have [now] reached our term, which you appointed for us." He will say, "The Fire is your residence, wherein you will abide eternally, except for what Allah wills. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing."
918 6 The Cattle 129 And thus will We make some of the wrongdoers allies of others for what they used to earn.
919 6 The Cattle 130 "O company of jinn and mankind, did there not come to you messengers from among you, relating to you My verses and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" They will say, "We bear witness against ourselves"; and the worldly life had deluded them, and they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
920 6 The Cattle 131 That is because your Lord would not destroy the cities for wrongdoing while their people were unaware.
921 6 The Cattle 132 And for all are degrees from what they have done. And your Lord is not unaware of what they do.
922 6 The Cattle 133 And your Lord is the Free of need, the possessor of mercy. If He wills, he can do away with you and give succession after you to whomever He wills, just as He produced you from the descendants of another people.
923 6 The Cattle 134 Indeed, what you are promised is coming, and you will not cause failure [to Allah].
924 6 The Cattle 135 Say, "O my people, work according to your position; [for] indeed, I am working. And you are going to know who will have succession in the home. Indeed, the wrongdoers will not succeed.
925 6 The Cattle 136 And the polytheists assign to Allah from that which He created of crops and livestock a share and say, "This is for Allah," by their claim, "and this is for our partners [associated with Him]." But what is for their "partners" does not reach Allah, while what is for Allah - this reaches their "partners." Evil is that which they rule.
926 6 The Cattle 137 And likewise, to many of the polytheists their partners have made [to seem] pleasing the killing of their children in order to bring about their destruction and to cover them with confusion in their religion. And if Allah had willed, they would not have done so. So leave them and that which they invent.
927 6 The Cattle 138 And they say, "These animals and crops are forbidden; no one may eat from them except whom we will," by their claim. And there are those [camels] whose backs are forbidden [by them] and those upon which the name of Allah is not mentioned - [all of this] an invention of untruth about Him. He will punish them for what they were inventing.
928 6 The Cattle 139 And they say, "What is in the bellies of these animals is exclusively for our males and forbidden to our females. But if it is [born] dead, then all of them have shares therein." He will punish them for their description. Indeed, He is Wise and Knowing.
929 6 The Cattle 140 Those will have lost who killed their children in foolishness without knowledge and prohibited what Allah had provided for them, inventing untruth about Allah. They have gone astray and were not [rightly] guided.
930 6 The Cattle 141 And He it is who causes gardens to grow, [both] trellised and untrellised, and palm trees and crops of different [kinds of] food and olives and pomegranates, similar and dissimilar. Eat of [each of] its fruit when it yields and give its due [zakah] on the day of its harvest. And be not excessive. Indeed, He does not like those who commit excess.
931 6 The Cattle 142 And of the grazing livestock are carriers [of burdens] and those [too] small. Eat of what Allah has provided for you and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
932 6 The Cattle 143 [They are] eight mates - of the sheep, two and of the goats, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Inform me with knowledge, if you should be truthful."
933 6 The Cattle 144 And of the camels, two and of the cattle, two. Say, "Is it the two males He has forbidden or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when Allah charged you with this? Then who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about Allah to mislead the people by [something] other than knowledge? Indeed, Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people."
934 6 The Cattle 145 Say, "I do not find within that which was revealed to me [anything] forbidden to one who would eat it unless it be a dead animal or blood spilled out or the flesh of swine - for indeed, it is impure - or it be [that slaughtered in] disobedience, dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], then indeed, your Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."
935 6 The Cattle 146 And to those who are Jews We prohibited every animal of uncloven hoof; and of the cattle and the sheep We prohibited to them their fat, except what adheres to their backs or the entrails or what is joined with bone. [By] that We repaid them for their injustice. And indeed, We are truthful.
936 6 The Cattle 147 So if they deny you, [O Muhammad], say, "Your Lord is the possessor of vast mercy; but His punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals."
937 6 The Cattle 148 Those who associated with Allah will say, "If Allah had willed, we would not have associated [anything] and neither would our fathers, nor would we have prohibited anything." Likewise did those before deny until they tasted Our punishment. Say, "Do you have any knowledge that you can produce for us? You follow not except assumption, and you are not but falsifying."
938 6 The Cattle 149 Say, "With Allah is the far-reaching argument. If He had willed, He would have guided you all."
939 6 The Cattle 150 Say, [O Muhammad], "Bring forward your witnesses who will testify that Allah has prohibited this." And if they testify, do not testify with them. And do not follow the desires of those who deny Our verses and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, while they equate [others] with their Lord.
940 6 The Cattle 151 Say, "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. [He commands] that you not associate anything with Him, and to parents, good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has He instructed you that you may use reason."
941 6 The Cattle 152 And do not approach the orphan's property except in a way that is best until he reaches maturity. And give full measure and weight in justice. We do not charge any soul except [with that within] its capacity. And when you testify, be just, even if [it concerns] a near relative. And the covenant of Allah fulfill. This has He instructed you that you may remember.
942 6 The Cattle 153 And, [moreover], this is My path, which is straight, so follow it; and do not follow [other] ways, for you will be separated from His way. This has He instructed you that you may become righteous.
943 6 The Cattle 154 Then We gave Moses the Scripture, making complete [Our favor] upon the one who did good and as a detailed explanation of all things and as guidance and mercy that perhaps in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord they would believe.
944 6 The Cattle 155 And this [Qur'an] is a Book We have revealed [which is] blessed, so follow it and fear Allah that you may receive mercy.
945 6 The Cattle 156 [We revealed it] lest you say, "The Scripture was only sent down to two groups before us, but we were of their study unaware,"
946 6 The Cattle 157 Or lest you say, "If only the Scripture had been revealed to us, we would have been better guided than they." So there has [now] come to you a clear evidence from your Lord and a guidance and mercy. Then who is more unjust than one who denies the verses of Allah and turns away from them? We will recompense those who turn away from Our verses with the worst of punishment for their having turned away.
947 6 The Cattle 158 Do they [then] wait for anything except that the angels should come to them or your Lord should come or that there come some of the signs of your Lord? The Day that some of the signs of your Lord will come no soul will benefit from its faith as long as it had not believed before or had earned through its faith some good. Say, "Wait. Indeed, we [also] are waiting."
948 6 The Cattle 159 Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects - you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah; then He will inform them about what they used to do.
949 6 The Cattle 160 Whoever comes [on the Day of Judgement] with a good deed will have ten times the like thereof [to his credit], and whoever comes with an evil deed will not be recompensed except the like thereof; and they will not be wronged.
950 6 The Cattle 161 Say, "Indeed, my Lord has guided me to a straight path - a correct religion - the way of Abraham, inclining toward truth. And he was not among those who associated others with Allah."
951 6 The Cattle 162 Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.
952 6 The Cattle 163 No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first [among you] of the Muslims."
953 6 The Cattle 164 Say, "Is it other than Allah I should desire as a lord while He is the Lord of all things? And every soul earns not [blame] except against itself, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you concerning that over which you used to differ."
954 6 The Cattle 165 And it is He who has made you successors upon the earth and has raised some of you above others in degrees [of rank] that He may try you through what He has given you. Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.
955 7 The Heights 1 Alif, Lam, Meem, Sad.
956 7 The Heights 2 [This is] a Book revealed to you, [O Muhammad] - so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom - that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.
957 7 The Heights 3 Follow, [O mankind], what has been revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow other than Him any allies. Little do you remember.
958 7 The Heights 4 And how many cities have We destroyed, and Our punishment came to them at night or while they were sleeping at noon.
959 7 The Heights 5 And their declaration when Our punishment came to them was only that they said, "Indeed, we were wrongdoers!"
960 7 The Heights 6 Then We will surely question those to whom [a message] was sent, and We will surely question the messengers.
961 7 The Heights 7 Then We will surely relate [their deeds] to them with knowledge, and We were not [at all] absent.
962 7 The Heights 8 And the weighing [of deeds] that Day will be the truth. So those whose scales are heavy - it is they who will be the successful.
963 7 The Heights 9 And those whose scales are light - they are the ones who will lose themselves for what injustice they were doing toward Our verses.
964 7 The Heights 10 And We have certainly established you upon the earth and made for you therein ways of livelihood. Little are you grateful.
965 7 The Heights 11 And We have certainly created you, [O Mankind], and given you [human] form. Then We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam"; so they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was not of those who prostrated.
966 7 The Heights 12 [Allah] said, "What prevented you from prostrating when I commanded you?" [Satan] said, "I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay."
967 7 The Heights 13 [Allah] said, "Descend from Paradise, for it is not for you to be arrogant therein. So get out; indeed, you are of the debased.
968 7 The Heights 14 [Satan] said, "Reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected."
969 7 The Heights 15 [Allah] said, "Indeed, you are of those reprieved."
970 7 The Heights 16 [Satan] said, "Because You have put me in error, I will surely sit in wait for them on Your straight path.
971 7 The Heights 17 Then I will come to them from before them and from behind them and on their right and on their left, and You will not find most of them grateful [to You]."
972 7 The Heights 18 [Allah] said, "Get out of Paradise, reproached and expelled. Whoever follows you among them - I will surely fill Hell with you, all together."
973 7 The Heights 19 And "O Adam, dwell, you and your wife, in Paradise and eat from wherever you will but do not approach this tree, lest you be among the wrongdoers."
974 7 The Heights 20 But Satan whispered to them to make apparent to them that which was concealed from them of their private parts. He said, "Your Lord did not forbid you this tree except that you become angels or become of the immortal."
975 7 The Heights 21 And he swore [by Allah] to them, "Indeed, I am to you from among the sincere advisors."
976 7 The Heights 22 So he made them fall, through deception. And when they tasted of the tree, their private parts became apparent to them, and they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise. And their Lord called to them, "Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that Satan is to you a clear enemy?"
977 7 The Heights 23 They said, "Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers."
978 7 The Heights 24 [Allah] said, "Descend, being to one another enemies. And for you on the earth is a place of settlement and enjoyment for a time."
979 7 The Heights 25 He said, "Therein you will live, and therein you will die, and from it you will be brought forth."
980 7 The Heights 26 O children of Adam, We have bestowed upon you clothing to conceal your private parts and as adornment. But the clothing of righteousness - that is best. That is from the signs of Allah that perhaps they will remember.
981 7 The Heights 27 O children of Adam, let not Satan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies to those who do not believe.
982 7 The Heights 28 And when they commit an immorality, they say, "We found our fathers doing it, and Allah has ordered us to do it." Say, "Indeed, Allah does not order immorality. Do you say about Allah that which you do not know?"
983 7 The Heights 29 Say, [O Muhammad], "My Lord has ordered justice and that you maintain yourselves [in worship of Him] at every place [or time] of prostration, and invoke Him, sincere to Him in religion." Just as He originated you, you will return [to life] -
984 7 The Heights 30 A group [of you] He guided, and a group deserved [to be in] error. Indeed, they had taken the devils as allies instead of Allah while they thought that they were guided.
985 7 The Heights 31 O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.
986 7 The Heights 32 Say, "Who has forbidden the adornment of Allah which He has produced for His servants and the good [lawful] things of provision?" Say, "They are for those who believe during the worldly life [but] exclusively for them on the Day of Resurrection." Thus do We detail the verses for a people who know.
987 7 The Heights 33 Say, "My Lord has only forbidden immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed - and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know."
988 7 The Heights 34 And for every nation is a [specified] term. So when their time has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].
989 7 The Heights 35 O children of Adam, if there come to you messengers from among you relating to you My verses, then whoever fears Allah and reforms - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
990 7 The Heights 36 But the ones who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.
991 7 The Heights 37 And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie or denies His verses? Those will attain their portion of the decree until when Our messengers come to them to take them in death, they will say, "Where are those you used to invoke besides Allah?" They will say, "They have departed from us," and will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
992 7 The Heights 38 [Allah] will say, "Enter among nations which had passed on before you of jinn and mankind into the Fire." Every time a nation enters, it will curse its sister until, when they have all overtaken one another therein, the last of them will say about the first of them "Our Lord, these had misled us, so give them a double punishment of the Fire. He will say, "For each is double, but you do not know."
993 7 The Heights 39 And the first of them will say to the last of them, "Then you had not any favor over us, so taste the punishment for what you used to earn."
994 7 The Heights 40 Indeed, those who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter Paradise until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do We recompense the criminals.
995 7 The Heights 41 They will have from Hell a bed and over them coverings [of fire]. And thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.
996 7 The Heights 42 But those who believed and did righteous deeds - We charge no soul except [within] its capacity. Those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally.
997 7 The Heights 43 And We will have removed whatever is within their breasts of resentment, [while] flowing beneath them are rivers. And they will say, "Praise to Allah, who has guided us to this; and we would never have been guided if Allah had not guided us. Certainly the messengers of our Lord had come with the truth." And they will be called, "This is Paradise, which you have been made to inherit for what you used to do."
998 7 The Heights 44 And the companions of Paradise will call out to the companions of the Fire, "We have already found what our Lord promised us to be true. Have you found what your Lord promised to be true?" They will say, "Yes." Then an announcer will announce among them, "The curse of Allah shall be upon the wrongdoers."
999 7 The Heights 45 Who averted [people] from the way of Allah and sought to make it [seem] deviant while they were, concerning the Hereafter, disbelievers.
1000 7 The Heights 46 And between them will be a partition, and on [its] elevations are men who recognize all by their mark. And they call out to the companions of Paradise, "Peace be upon you." They have not [yet] entered it, but they long intensely.
1001 7 The Heights 47 And when their eyes are turned toward the companions of the Fire, they say, "Our Lord, do not place us with the wrongdoing people."
1002 7 The Heights 48 And the companions of the Elevations will call to men [within Hell] whom they recognize by their mark, saying, "Of no avail to you was your gathering and [the fact] that you were arrogant."
1003 7 The Heights 49 [Allah will say], "Are these the ones whom you [inhabitants of Hell] swore that Allah would never offer them mercy? Enter Paradise, [O People of the Elevations]. No fear will there be concerning you, nor will you grieve."
1004 7 The Heights 50 And the companions of the Fire will call to the companions of Paradise, "Pour upon us some water or from whatever Allah has provided you." They will say, "Indeed, Allah has forbidden them both to the disbelievers."
1005 7 The Heights 51 Who took their religion as distraction and amusement and whom the worldly life deluded." So today We will forget them just as they forgot the meeting of this Day of theirs and for having rejected Our verses.
1006 7 The Heights 52 And We had certainly brought them a Book which We detailed by knowledge - as guidance and mercy to a people who believe.
1007 7 The Heights 53 Do they await except its result? The Day its result comes those who had ignored it before will say, "The messengers of our Lord had come with the truth, so are there [now] any intercessors to intercede for us or could we be sent back to do other than we used to do?" They will have lost themselves, and lost from them is what they used to invent.
1008 7 The Heights 54 Indeed, your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds.
1009 7 The Heights 55 Call upon your Lord in humility and privately; indeed, He does not like transgressors.
1010 7 The Heights 56 And cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. And invoke Him in fear and aspiration. Indeed, the mercy of Allah is near to the doers of good.
1011 7 The Heights 57 And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy until, when they have carried heavy rainclouds, We drive them to a dead land and We send down rain therein and bring forth thereby [some] of all the fruits. Thus will We bring forth the dead; perhaps you may be reminded.
1012 7 The Heights 58 And the good land - its vegetation emerges by permission of its Lord; but that which is bad - nothing emerges except sparsely, with difficulty. Thus do We diversify the signs for a people who are grateful.
1013 7 The Heights 59 We had certainly sent Noah to his people, and he said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous Day.
1014 7 The Heights 60 Said the eminent among his people, "Indeed, we see you in clear error."
1015 7 The Heights 61 [Noah] said, "O my people, there is not error in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds."
1016 7 The Heights 62 I convey to you the messages of my Lord and advise you; and I know from Allah what you do not know.
1017 7 The Heights 63 Then do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you and that you may fear Allah so you might receive mercy."
1018 7 The Heights 64 But they denied him, so We saved him and those who were with him in the ship. And We drowned those who denied Our signs. Indeed, they were a blind people.
1019 7 The Heights 65 And to the 'Aad [We sent] their brother Hud. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. Then will you not fear Him?"
1020 7 The Heights 66 Said the eminent ones who disbelieved among his people, "Indeed, we see you in foolishness, and indeed, we think you are of the liars."
1021 7 The Heights 67 [Hud] said, "O my people, there is not foolishness in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds."
1022 7 The Heights 68 I convey to you the messages of my Lord, and I am to you a trustworthy adviser.
1023 7 The Heights 69 Then do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you? And remember when He made you successors after the people of Noah and increased you in stature extensively. So remember the favors of Allah that you might succeed.
1024 7 The Heights 70 They said, "Have you come to us that we should worship Allah alone and leave what our fathers have worshipped? Then bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the truthful."
1025 7 The Heights 71 [Hud] said, "Already have defilement and anger fallen upon you from your Lord. Do you dispute with me concerning [mere] names you have named them, you and your fathers, for which Allah has not sent down any authority? Then wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait."
1026 7 The Heights 72 So We saved him and those with him by mercy from Us. And We eliminated those who denied Our signs, and they were not [at all] believers.
1027 7 The Heights 73 And to the Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of Allah [sent] to you as a sign. So leave her to eat within Allah 's land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful punishment.
1028 7 The Heights 74 And remember when He made you successors after the 'Aad and settled you in the land, [and] you take for yourselves palaces from its plains and carve from the mountains, homes. Then remember the favors of Allah and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption."
1029 7 The Heights 75 Said the eminent ones who were arrogant among his people to those who were oppressed - to those who believed among them, "Do you [actually] know that Salih is sent from his Lord?" They said, "Indeed we, in that with which he was sent, are believers."
1030 7 The Heights 76 Said those who were arrogant, "Indeed we, in that which you have believed, are disbelievers."
1031 7 The Heights 77 So they hamstrung the she-camel and were insolent toward the command of their Lord and said, "O Salih, bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the messengers."
1032 7 The Heights 78 So the earthquake seized them, and they became within their home [corpses] fallen prone.
1033 7 The Heights 79 And he turned away from them and said, "O my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the message of my Lord and advised you, but you do not like advisors."
1034 7 The Heights 80 And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds?
1035 7 The Heights 81 Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people."
1036 7 The Heights 82 But the answer of his people was only that they said, "Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure."
1037 7 The Heights 83 So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; she was of those who remained [with the evildoers].
1038 7 The Heights 84 And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.
1039 7 The Heights 85 And to [the people of] Madyan [We sent] their brother Shu'ayb. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfill the measure and weight and do not deprive people of their due and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. That is better for you, if you should be believers.
1040 7 The Heights 86 And do not sit on every path, threatening and averting from the way of Allah those who believe in Him, seeking to make it [seem] deviant. And remember when you were few and He increased you. And see how was the end of the corrupters.
1041 7 The Heights 87 And if there should be a group among you who has believed in that with which I have been sent and a group that has not believed, then be patient until Allah judges between us. And He is the best of judges."
1042 7 The Heights 88 Said the eminent ones who were arrogant among his people, "We will surely evict you, O Shu'ayb, and those who have believed with you from our city, or you must return to our religion." He said, "Even if we were unwilling?"
1043 7 The Heights 89 We would have invented against Allah a lie if we returned to your religion after Allah had saved us from it. And it is not for us to return to it except that Allah, our Lord, should will. Our Lord has encompassed all things in knowledge. Upon Allah we have relied. Our Lord, decide between us and our people in truth, and You are the best of those who give decision."
1044 7 The Heights 90 Said the eminent ones who disbelieved among his people, "If you should follow Shu'ayb, indeed, you would then be losers."
1045 7 The Heights 91 So the earthquake seized them, and they became within their home [corpses] fallen prone.
1046 7 The Heights 92 Those who denied Shu'ayb - it was as though they had never resided there. Those who denied Shu'ayb - it was they who were the losers.
1047 7 The Heights 93 And he turned away from them and said, "O my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the messages of my Lord and advised you, so how could I grieve for a disbelieving people?"
1048 7 The Heights 94 And We sent to no city a prophet [who was denied] except that We seized its people with poverty and hardship that they might humble themselves [to Allah].
1049 7 The Heights 95 Then We exchanged in place of the bad [condition], good, until they increased [and prospered] and said, "Our fathers [also] were touched with hardship and ease." So We seized them suddenly while they did not perceive.
1050 7 The Heights 96 And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, We would have opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers], so We seized them for what they were earning."
1051 7 The Heights 97 Then, did the people of the cities feel secure from Our punishment coming to them at night while they were asleep?
1052 7 The Heights 98 Or did the people of the cities feel secure from Our punishment coming to them in the morning while they were at play?
1053 7 The Heights 99 Then did they feel secure from the plan of Allah? But no one feels secure from the plan of Allah except the losing people.
1054 7 The Heights 100 Has it not become clear to those who inherited the earth after its [previous] people that if We willed, We could afflict them for their sins? But We seal over their hearts so they do not hear.
1055 7 The Heights 101 Those cities - We relate to you, [O Muhammad], some of their news. And certainly did their messengers come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe in that which they had denied before. Thus does Allah seal over the hearts of the disbelievers.
1056 7 The Heights 102 And We did not find for most of them any covenant; but indeed, We found most of them defiantly disobedient.
1057 7 The Heights 103 Then We sent after them Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were unjust toward them. So see how was the end of the corrupters.
1058 7 The Heights 104 And Moses said, "O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds
1059 7 The Heights 105 [Who is] obligated not to say about Allah except the truth. I have come to you with clear evidence from your Lord, so send with me the Children of Israel."
1060 7 The Heights 106 [Pharaoh] said, "If you have come with a sign, then bring it forth, if you should be of the truthful."
1061 7 The Heights 107 So Moses threw his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent, manifest.
1062 7 The Heights 108 And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white [with radiance] for the observers.
1063 7 The Heights 109 Said the eminent among the people of Pharaoh, "Indeed, this is a learned magician
1064 7 The Heights 110 Who wants to expel you from your land [through magic], so what do you instruct?"
1065 7 The Heights 111 They said, "Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers
1066 7 The Heights 112 Who will bring you every learned magician."
1067 7 The Heights 113 And the magicians came to Pharaoh. They said, "Indeed for us is a reward if we are the predominant."
1068 7 The Heights 114 He said, "Yes, and, [moreover], you will be among those made near [to me]."
1069 7 The Heights 115 They said, "O Moses, either you throw [your staff], or we will be the ones to throw [first]."
1070 7 The Heights 116 He said, "Throw," and when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them, and they presented a great [feat of] magic.
1071 7 The Heights 117 And We inspired to Moses, "Throw your staff," and at once it devoured what they were falsifying.
1072 7 The Heights 118 So the truth was established, and abolished was what they were doing.
1073 7 The Heights 119 And Pharaoh and his people were overcome right there and became debased.
1074 7 The Heights 120 And the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah].
1075 7 The Heights 121 They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,
1076 7 The Heights 122 The Lord of Moses and Aaron."
1077 7 The Heights 123 Said Pharaoh, "You believed in him before I gave you permission. Indeed, this is a conspiracy which you conspired in the city to expel therefrom its people. But you are going to know.
1078 7 The Heights 124 I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides; then I will surely crucify you all."
1079 7 The Heights 125 They said, "Indeed, to our Lord we will return.
1080 7 The Heights 126 And you do not resent us except because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims [in submission to You]."
1081 7 The Heights 127 And the eminent among the people of Pharaoh said," Will you leave Moses and his people to cause corruption in the land and abandon you and your gods?" [Pharaoh] said, "We will kill their sons and keep their women alive; and indeed, we are subjugators over them."
1082 7 The Heights 128 Said Moses to his people, "Seek help through Allah and be patient. Indeed, the earth belongs to Allah. He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous."
1083 7 The Heights 129 They said, "We have been harmed before you came to us and after you have come to us." He said, "Perhaps your Lord will destroy your enemy and grant you succession in the land and see how you will do."
1084 7 The Heights 130 And We certainly seized the people of Pharaoh with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded.
1085 7 The Heights 131 But when good came to them, they said, "This is ours [by right]." And if a bad [condition] struck them, they saw an evil omen in Moses and those with him. Unquestionably, their fortune is with Allah, but most of them do not know.
1086 7 The Heights 132 And they said, "No matter what sign you bring us with which to bewitch us, we will not be believers in you."
1087 7 The Heights 133 So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.
1088 7 The Heights 134 And when the punishment descended upon them, they said, "O Moses, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel."
1089 7 The Heights 135 But when We removed the punishment from them until a term which they were to reach, then at once they broke their word.
1090 7 The Heights 136 So We took retribution from them, and We drowned them in the sea because they denied Our signs and were heedless of them.
1091 7 The Heights 137 And We caused the people who had been oppressed to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which We had blessed. And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel because of what they had patiently endured. And We destroyed [all] that Pharaoh and his people were producing and what they had been building.
1092 7 The Heights 138 And We took the Children of Israel across the sea; then they came upon a people intent in devotion to [some] idols of theirs. They said, "O Moses, make for us a god just as they have gods." He said, "Indeed, you are a people behaving ignorantly.
1093 7 The Heights 139 Indeed, those [worshippers] - destroyed is that in which they are [engaged], and worthless is whatever they were doing."
1094 7 The Heights 140 He said, "Is it other than Allah I should desire for you as a god while He has preferred you over the worlds?"
1095 7 The Heights 141 And [recall, O Children of Israel], when We saved you from the people of Pharaoh, [who were] afflicting you with the worst torment - killing your sons and keeping your women alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
1096 7 The Heights 142 And We made an appointment with Moses for thirty nights and perfected them by [the addition of] ten; so the term of his Lord was completed as forty nights. And Moses said to his brother Aaron, "Take my place among my people, do right [by them], and do not follow the way of the corrupters."
1097 7 The Heights 143 And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, "My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You." [Allah] said, "You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me." But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, "Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers."
1098 7 The Heights 144 [Allah] said, "O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words [to you]. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful."
1099 7 The Heights 145 And We wrote for him on the tablets [something] of all things - instruction and explanation for all things, [saying], "Take them with determination and order your people to take the best of it. I will show you the home of the defiantly disobedient."
1100 7 The Heights 146 I will turn away from My signs those who are arrogant upon the earth without right; and if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see the way of consciousness, they will not adopt it as a way; but if they see the way of error, they will adopt it as a way. That is because they have denied Our signs and they were heedless of them.
1101 7 The Heights 147 Those who denied Our signs and the meeting of the Hereafter - their deeds have become worthless. Are they recompensed except for what they used to do?
1102 7 The Heights 148 And the people of Moses made, after [his departure], from their ornaments a calf - an image having a lowing sound. Did they not see that it could neither speak to them nor guide them to a way? They took it [for worship], and they were wrongdoers.
1103 7 The Heights 149 And when regret overcame them and they saw that they had gone astray, they said, "If our Lord does not have mercy upon us and forgive us, we will surely be among the losers."
1104 7 The Heights 150 And when Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved, he said, "How wretched is that by which you have replaced me after [my departure]. Were you impatient over the matter of your Lord?" And he threw down the tablets and seized his brother by [the hair of] his head, pulling him toward him. [Aaron] said, "O son of my mother, indeed the people oppressed me and were about to kill me, so let not the enemies rejoice over me and do not place me among the wrongdoing people."
1105 7 The Heights 151 [Moses] said, "My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy, for You are the most merciful of the merciful."
1106 7 The Heights 152 Indeed, those who took the calf [for worship] will obtain anger from their Lord and humiliation in the life of this world, and thus do We recompense the inventors [of falsehood].
1107 7 The Heights 153 But those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed - indeed your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful.
1108 7 The Heights 154 And when the anger subsided in Moses, he took up the tablets; and in their inscription was guidance and mercy for those who are fearful of their Lord.
1109 7 The Heights 155 And Moses chose from his people seventy men for Our appointment. And when the earthquake seized them, he said, "My Lord, if You had willed, You could have destroyed them before and me [as well]. Would You destroy us for what the foolish among us have done? This is not but Your trial by which You send astray whom You will and guide whom You will. You are our Protector, so forgive us and have mercy upon us; and You are the best of forgivers.
1110 7 The Heights 156 And decree for us in this world [that which is] good and [also] in the Hereafter; indeed, we have turned back to You." [Allah] said, "My punishment - I afflict with it whom I will, but My mercy encompasses all things." So I will decree it [especially] for those who fear Me and give zakah and those who believe in Our verses -
1111 7 The Heights 157 Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him - it is those who will be the successful.
1112 7 The Heights 158 Say, [O Muhammad], "O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death." So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided.
1113 7 The Heights 159 And among the people of Moses is a community which guides by truth and by it establishes justice.
1114 7 The Heights 160 And We divided them into twelve descendant tribes [as distinct] nations. And We inspired to Moses when his people implored him for water, "Strike with your staff the stone," and there gushed forth from it twelve springs. Every people knew its watering place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and quails, [saying], "Eat from the good things with which We have provided you." And they wronged Us not, but they were [only] wronging themselves.
1115 7 The Heights 161 And [mention, O Muhammad], when it was said to them, "Dwell in this city and eat from it wherever you will and say, 'Relieve us of our burdens,' and enter the gate bowing humbly; We will [then] forgive you your sins. We will increase the doers of good [in goodness and reward]."
1116 7 The Heights 162 But those who wronged among them changed [the words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them. So We sent upon them a punishment from the sky for the wrong that they were doing.
1117 7 The Heights 163 And ask them about the town that was by the sea - when they transgressed in [the matter of] the sabbath - when their fish came to them openly on their sabbath day, and the day they had no sabbath they did not come to them. Thus did We give them trial because they were defiantly disobedient.
1118 7 The Heights 164 And when a community among them said, "Why do you advise [or warn] a people whom Allah is [about] to destroy or to punish with a severe punishment?" they [the advisors] said, "To be absolved before your Lord and perhaps they may fear Him."
1119 7 The Heights 165 And when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.
1120 7 The Heights 166 So when they were insolent about that which they had been forbidden, We said to them, "Be apes, despised."
1121 7 The Heights 167 And [mention] when your Lord declared that He would surely [continue to] send upon them until the Day of Resurrection those who would afflict them with the worst torment. Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.
1122 7 The Heights 168 And We divided them throughout the earth into nations. Of them some were righteous, and of them some were otherwise. And We tested them with good [times] and bad that perhaps they would return [to obedience].
1123 7 The Heights 169 And there followed them successors who inherited the Scripture [while] taking the commodities of this lower life and saying, "It will be forgiven for us." And if an offer like it comes to them, they will [again] take it. Was not the covenant of the Scripture taken from them that they would not say about Allah except the truth, and they studied what was in it? And the home of the Hereafter is better for those who fear Allah, so will you not use reason?
1124 7 The Heights 170 But those who hold fast to the Book and establish prayer - indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of the reformers.
1125 7 The Heights 171 And [mention] when We raised the mountain above them as if it was a dark cloud and they were certain that it would fall upon them, [and Allah said], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that you might fear Allah."
1126 7 The Heights 172 And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam - from their loins - their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we have testified." [This] - lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, "Indeed, we were of this unaware."
1127 7 The Heights 173 Or [lest] you say, "It was only that our fathers associated [others in worship] with Allah before, and we were but descendants after them. Then would You destroy us for what the falsifiers have done?"
1128 7 The Heights 174 And thus do We [explain in] detail the verses, and perhaps they will return.
1129 7 The Heights 175 And recite to them, [O Muhammad], the news of him to whom we gave [knowledge of] Our signs, but he detached himself from them; so Satan pursued him, and he became of the deviators.
1130 7 The Heights 176 And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he [still] pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought.
1131 7 The Heights 177 How evil an example [is that of] the people who denied Our signs and used to wrong themselves.
1132 7 The Heights 178 Whoever Allah guides - he is the [rightly] guided; and whoever He sends astray - it is those who are the losers.
1133 7 The Heights 179 And We have certainly created for Hell many of the jinn and mankind. They have hearts with which they do not understand, they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear. Those are like livestock; rather, they are more astray. It is they who are the heedless.
1134 7 The Heights 180 And to Allah belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.
1135 7 The Heights 181 And among those We created is a community which guides by truth and thereby establishes justice.
1136 7 The Heights 182 But those who deny Our signs - We will progressively lead them [to destruction] from where they do not know.
1137 7 The Heights 183 And I will give them time. Indeed, my plan is firm.
1138 7 The Heights 184 Then do they not give thought? There is in their companion [Muhammad] no madness. He is not but a clear warner.
1139 7 The Heights 185 Do they not look into the realm of the heavens and the earth and everything that Allah has created and [think] that perhaps their appointed time has come near? So in what statement hereafter will they believe?
1140 7 The Heights 186 Whoever Allah sends astray - there is no guide for him. And He leaves them in their transgression, wandering blindly.
1141 7 The Heights 187 They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? Say, "Its knowledge is only with my Lord. None will reveal its time except Him. It lays heavily upon the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except unexpectedly." They ask you as if you are familiar with it. Say, "Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most of the people do not know."
1142 7 The Heights 188 Say, "I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what Allah has willed. And if I knew the unseen, I could have acquired much wealth, and no harm would have touched me. I am not except a warner and a bringer of good tidings to a people who believe."
1143 7 The Heights 189 It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her. And when he covers her, she carries a light burden and continues therein. And when it becomes heavy, they both invoke Allah, their Lord, "If You should give us a good [child], we will surely be among the grateful."
1144 7 The Heights 190 But when He gives them a good [child], they ascribe partners to Him concerning that which He has given them. Exalted is Allah above what they associate with Him.
1145 7 The Heights 191 Do they associate with Him those who create nothing and they are [themselves] created?
1146 7 The Heights 192 And the false deities are unable to [give] them help, nor can they help themselves.
1147 7 The Heights 193 And if you [believers] invite them to guidance, they will not follow you. It is all the same for you whether you invite them or you are silent.
1148 7 The Heights 194 Indeed, those you [polytheists] call upon besides Allah are servants like you. So call upon them and let them respond to you, if you should be truthful.
1149 7 The Heights 195 Do they have feet by which they walk? Or do they have hands by which they strike? Or do they have eyes by which they see? Or do they have ears by which they hear? Say, [O Muhammad], "Call your 'partners' and then conspire against me and give me no respite.
1150 7 The Heights 196 Indeed, my protector is Allah, who has sent down the Book; and He is an ally to the righteous.
1151 7 The Heights 197 And those you call upon besides Him are unable to help you, nor can they help themselves."
1152 7 The Heights 198 And if you invite them to guidance, they do not hear; and you see them looking at you while they do not see.
1153 7 The Heights 199 Take what is given freely, enjoin what is good, and turn away from the ignorant.
1154 7 The Heights 200 And if an evil suggestion comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge in Allah. Indeed, He is Hearing and Knowing.
1155 7 The Heights 201 Indeed, those who fear Allah - when an impulse touches them from Satan, they remember [Him] and at once they have insight.
1156 7 The Heights 202 But their brothers - the devils increase them in error; then they do not stop short.
1157 7 The Heights 203 And when you, [O Muhammad], do not bring them a sign, they say, "Why have you not contrived it?" Say, "I only follow what is revealed to me from my Lord. This [Qur'an] is enlightenment from your Lord and guidance and mercy for a people who believe."
1158 7 The Heights 204 So when the Qur'an is recited, then listen to it and pay attention that you may receive mercy.
1159 7 The Heights 205 And remember your Lord within yourself in humility and in fear without being apparent in speech - in the mornings and the evenings. And do not be among the heedless.
1160 7 The Heights 206 Indeed, those who are near your Lord are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, and they exalt Him, and to Him they prostrate.
1161 8 The Spoils of War 1 They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the bounties [of war]. Say, "The [decision concerning] bounties is for Allah and the Messenger." So fear Allah and amend that which is between you and obey Allah and His Messenger, if you should be believers.
1162 8 The Spoils of War 2 The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely -
1163 8 The Spoils of War 3 The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend.
1164 8 The Spoils of War 4 Those are the believers, truly. For them are degrees [of high position] with their Lord and forgiveness and noble provision.
1165 8 The Spoils of War 5 [It is] just as when your Lord brought you out of your home [for the battle of Badr] in truth, while indeed, a party among the believers were unwilling,
1166 8 The Spoils of War 6 Arguing with you concerning the truth after it had become clear, as if they were being driven toward death while they were looking on.
1167 8 The Spoils of War 7 [Remember, O believers], when Allah promised you one of the two groups - that it would be yours - and you wished that the unarmed one would be yours. But Allah intended to establish the truth by His words and to eliminate the disbelievers
1168 8 The Spoils of War 8 That He should establish the truth and abolish falsehood, even if the criminals disliked it.
1169 8 The Spoils of War 9 [Remember] when you asked help of your Lord, and He answered you, "Indeed, I will reinforce you with a thousand from the angels, following one another."
1170 8 The Spoils of War 10 And Allah made it not but good tidings and so that your hearts would be assured thereby. And victory is not but from Allah. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1171 8 The Spoils of War 11 [Remember] when He overwhelmed you with drowsiness [giving] security from Him and sent down upon you from the sky, rain by which to purify you and remove from you the evil [suggestions] of Satan and to make steadfast your hearts and plant firmly thereby your feet.
1172 8 The Spoils of War 12 [Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."
1173 8 The Spoils of War 13 That is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger - indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.
1174 8 The Spoils of War 14 "That [is yours], so taste it." And indeed for the disbelievers is the punishment of the Fire.
1175 8 The Spoils of War 15 O you who have believed, when you meet those who disbelieve advancing [for battle], do not turn to them your backs [in flight].
1176 8 The Spoils of War 16 And whoever turns his back to them on such a day, unless swerving [as a strategy] for war or joining [another] company, has certainly returned with anger [upon him] from Allah, and his refuge is Hell - and wretched is the destination.
1177 8 The Spoils of War 17 And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
1178 8 The Spoils of War 18 That [is so], and [also] that Allah will weaken the plot of the disbelievers.
1179 8 The Spoils of War 19 If you [disbelievers] seek the victory - the defeat has come to you. And if you desist [from hostilities], it is best for you; but if you return [to war], We will return, and never will you be availed by your [large] company at all, even if it should increase; and [that is] because Allah is with the believers.
1180 8 The Spoils of War 20 O you who have believed, obey Allah and His Messenger and do not turn from him while you hear [his order].
1181 8 The Spoils of War 21 And do not be like those who say, "We have heard," while they do not hear.
1182 8 The Spoils of War 22 Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason.
1183 8 The Spoils of War 23 Had Allah known any good in them, He would have made them hear. And if He had made them hear, they would [still] have turned away, while they were refusing.
1184 8 The Spoils of War 24 O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.
1185 8 The Spoils of War 25 And fear a trial which will not strike those who have wronged among you exclusively, and know that Allah is severe in penalty.
1186 8 The Spoils of War 26 And remember when you were few and oppressed in the land, fearing that people might abduct you, but He sheltered you, supported you with His victory, and provided you with good things - that you might be grateful.
1187 8 The Spoils of War 27 O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence].
1188 8 The Spoils of War 28 And know that your properties and your children are but a trial and that Allah has with Him a great reward.
1189 8 The Spoils of War 29 O you who have believed, if you fear Allah, He will grant you a criterion and will remove from you your misdeeds and forgive you. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty.
1190 8 The Spoils of War 30 And [remember, O Muhammad], when those who disbelieved plotted against you to restrain you or kill you or evict you [from Makkah]. But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners.
1191 8 The Spoils of War 31 And when Our verses are recited to them, they say, "We have heard. If we willed, we could say [something] like this. This is not but legends of the former peoples."
1192 8 The Spoils of War 32 And [remember] when they said, "O Allah, if this should be the truth from You, then rain down upon us stones from the sky or bring us a painful punishment."
1193 8 The Spoils of War 33 But Allah would not punish them while you, [O Muhammad], are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.
1194 8 The Spoils of War 34 But why should Allah not punish them while they obstruct [people] from al-Masjid al- Haram and they were not [fit to be] its guardians? Its [true] guardians are not but the righteous, but most of them do not know.
1195 8 The Spoils of War 35 And their prayer at the House was not except whistling and handclapping. So taste the punishment for what you disbelieved.
1196 8 The Spoils of War 36 Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah. So they will spend it; then it will be for them a [source of] regret; then they will be overcome. And those who have disbelieved - unto Hell they will be gathered.
1197 8 The Spoils of War 37 [This is] so that Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers.
1198 8 The Spoils of War 38 Say to those who have disbelieved [that] if they cease, what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them. But if they return [to hostility] - then the precedent of the former [rebellious] peoples has already taken place.
1199 8 The Spoils of War 39 And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do.
1200 8 The Spoils of War 40 But if they turn away - then know that Allah is your protector. Excellent is the protector, and Excellent is the helper.
1201 8 The Spoils of War 41 And know that anything you obtain of war booty - then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the [stranded] traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion - the day when the two armies met. And Allah, over all things, is competent.
1202 8 The Spoils of War 42 [Remember] when you were on the near side of the valley, and they were on the farther side, and the caravan was lower [in position] than you. If you had made an appointment [to meet], you would have missed the appointment. But [it was] so that Allah might accomplish a matter already destined - that those who perished [through disbelief] would perish upon evidence and those who lived [in faith] would live upon evidence; and indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
1203 8 The Spoils of War 43 [Remember, O Muhammad], when Allah showed them to you in your dream as few; and if He had shown them to you as many, you [believers] would have lost courage and would have disputed in the matter [of whether to fight], but Allah saved [you from that]. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.
1204 8 The Spoils of War 44 And [remember] when He showed them to you, when you met, as few in your eyes, and He made you [appear] as few in their eyes so that Allah might accomplish a matter already destined. And to Allah are [all] matters returned.
1205 8 The Spoils of War 45 O you who have believed, when you encounter a company [from the enemy forces], stand firm and remember Allah much that you may be successful.
1206 8 The Spoils of War 46 And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.
1207 8 The Spoils of War 47 And do not be like those who came forth from their homes insolently and to be seen by people and avert [them] from the way of Allah. And Allah is encompassing of what they do.
1208 8 The Spoils of War 48 And [remember] when Satan made their deeds pleasing to them and said, "No one can overcome you today from among the people, and indeed, I am your protector." But when the two armies sighted each other, he turned on his heels and said, "Indeed, I am disassociated from you. Indeed, I see what you do not see; indeed I fear Allah. And Allah is severe in penalty."
1209 8 The Spoils of War 49 [Remember] when the hypocrites and those in whose hearts was disease said, "Their religion has deluded those [Muslims]." But whoever relies upon Allah - then indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1210 8 The Spoils of War 50 And if you could but see when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieved... They are striking their faces and their backs and [saying], "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.
1211 8 The Spoils of War 51 That is for what your hands have put forth [of evil] and because Allah is not ever unjust to His servants."
1212 8 The Spoils of War 52 [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and of those before them. They disbelieved in the signs of Allah, so Allah seized them for their sins. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and severe in penalty.
1213 8 The Spoils of War 53 That is because Allah would not change a favor which He had bestowed upon a people until they change what is within themselves. And indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
1214 8 The Spoils of War 54 [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and of those before them. They denied the signs of their Lord, so We destroyed them for their sins, and We drowned the people of Pharaoh. And all [of them] were wrongdoers.
1215 8 The Spoils of War 55 Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe -
1216 8 The Spoils of War 56 The ones with whom you made a treaty but then they break their pledge every time, and they do not fear Allah.
1217 8 The Spoils of War 57 So if you, [O Muhammad], gain dominance over them in war, disperse by [means of] them those behind them that perhaps they will be reminded.
1218 8 The Spoils of War 58 If you [have reason to] fear from a people betrayal, throw [their treaty] back to them, [putting you] on equal terms. Indeed, Allah does not like traitors.
1219 8 The Spoils of War 59 And let not those who disbelieve think they will escape. Indeed, they will not cause failure [to Allah].
1220 8 The Spoils of War 60 And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.
1221 8 The Spoils of War 61 And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing.
1222 8 The Spoils of War 62 But if they intend to deceive you - then sufficient for you is Allah. It is He who supported you with His help and with the believers
1223 8 The Spoils of War 63 And brought together their hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have brought their hearts together; but Allah brought them together. Indeed, He is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1224 8 The Spoils of War 64 O Prophet, sufficient for you is Allah and for whoever follows you of the believers.
1225 8 The Spoils of War 65 O Prophet, urge the believers to battle. If there are among you twenty [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you one hundred [who are] steadfast, they will overcome a thousand of those who have disbelieved because they are a people who do not understand.
1226 8 The Spoils of War 66 Now, Allah has lightened [the hardship] for you, and He knows that among you is weakness. So if there are from you one hundred [who are] steadfast, they will overcome two hundred. And if there are among you a thousand, they will overcome two thousand by permission of Allah. And Allah is with the steadfast.
1227 8 The Spoils of War 67 It is not for a prophet to have captives [of war] until he inflicts a massacre [upon Allah 's enemies] in the land. Some Muslims desire the commodities of this world, but Allah desires [for you] the Hereafter. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1228 8 The Spoils of War 68 If not for a decree from Allah that preceded, you would have been touched for what you took by a great punishment.
1229 8 The Spoils of War 69 So consume what you have taken of war booty [as being] lawful and good, and fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1230 8 The Spoils of War 70 O Prophet, say to whoever is in your hands of the captives, "If Allah knows [any] good in your hearts, He will give you [something] better than what was taken from you, and He will forgive you; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful."
1231 8 The Spoils of War 71 But if they intend to betray you - then they have already betrayed Allah before, and He empowered [you] over them. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1232 8 The Spoils of War 72 Indeed, those who have believed and emigrated and fought with their wealth and lives in the cause of Allah and those who gave shelter and aided - they are allies of one another. But those who believed and did not emigrate - for you there is no guardianship of them until they emigrate. And if they seek help of you for the religion, then you must help, except against a people between yourselves and whom is a treaty. And Allah is Seeing of what you do.
1233 8 The Spoils of War 73 And those who disbelieved are allies of one another. If you do not do so, there will be fitnah on earth and great corruption.
1234 8 The Spoils of War 74 But those who have believed and emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah and those who gave shelter and aided - it is they who are the believers, truly. For them is forgiveness and noble provision.
1235 8 The Spoils of War 75 And those who believed after [the initial emigration] and emigrated and fought with you - they are of you. But those of [blood] relationship are more entitled [to inheritance] in the decree of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of all things.
1236 9 The Repentance 1 [This is a declaration of] disassociation, from Allah and His Messenger, to those with whom you had made a treaty among the polytheists.
1237 9 The Repentance 2 So travel freely, [O disbelievers], throughout the land [during] four months but know that you cannot cause failure to Allah and that Allah will disgrace the disbelievers.
1238 9 The Repentance 3 And [it is] an announcement from Allah and His Messenger to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah is disassociated from the disbelievers, and [so is] His Messenger. So if you repent, that is best for you; but if you turn away - then know that you will not cause failure to Allah. And give tidings to those who disbelieve of a painful punishment.
1239 9 The Repentance 4 Excepted are those with whom you made a treaty among the polytheists and then they have not been deficient toward you in anything or supported anyone against you; so complete for them their treaty until their term [has ended]. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].
1240 9 The Repentance 5 And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1241 9 The Repentance 6 And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah. Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.
1242 9 The Repentance 7 How can there be for the polytheists a treaty in the sight of Allah and with His Messenger, except for those with whom you made a treaty at al-Masjid al-Haram? So as long as they are upright toward you, be upright toward them. Indeed, Allah loves the righteous [who fear Him].
1243 9 The Repentance 8 How [can there be a treaty] while, if they gain dominance over you, they do not observe concerning you any pact of kinship or covenant of protection? They satisfy you with their mouths, but their hearts refuse [compliance], and most of them are defiantly disobedient.
1244 9 The Repentance 9 They have exchanged the signs of Allah for a small price and averted [people] from His way. Indeed, it was evil that they were doing.
1245 9 The Repentance 10 They do not observe toward a believer any pact of kinship or covenant of protection. And it is they who are the transgressors.
1246 9 The Repentance 11 But if they repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, then they are your brothers in religion; and We detail the verses for a people who know.
1247 9 The Repentance 12 And if they break their oaths after their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, there are no oaths [sacred] to them; [fight them that] they might cease.
1248 9 The Repentance 13 Would you not fight a people who broke their oaths and determined to expel the Messenger, and they had begun [the attack upon] you the first time? Do you fear them? But Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are [truly] believers.
1249 9 The Repentance 14 Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people
1250 9 The Repentance 15 And remove the fury in the believers' hearts. And Allah turns in forgiveness to whom He wills; and Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1251 9 The Repentance 16 Do you think that you will be left [as you are] while Allah has not yet made evident those among you who strive [for His cause] and do not take other than Allah, His Messenger and the believers as intimates? And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.
1252 9 The Repentance 17 It is not for the polytheists to maintain the mosques of Allah [while] witnessing against themselves with disbelief. [For] those, their deeds have become worthless, and in the Fire they will abide eternally.
1253 9 The Repentance 18 The mosques of Allah are only to be maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and establish prayer and give zakah and do not fear except Allah, for it is expected that those will be of the [rightly] guided.
1254 9 The Repentance 19 Have you made the providing of water for the pilgrim and the maintenance of al-Masjid al-Haram equal to [the deeds of] one who believes in Allah and the Last Day and strives in the cause of Allah? They are not equal in the sight of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
1255 9 The Repentance 20 The ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of Allah. And it is those who are the attainers [of success].
1256 9 The Repentance 21 Their Lord gives them good tidings of mercy from Him and approval and of gardens for them wherein is enduring pleasure.
1257 9 The Repentance 22 [They will be] abiding therein forever. Indeed, Allah has with Him a great reward.
1258 9 The Repentance 23 O you who have believed, do not take your fathers or your brothers as allies if they have preferred disbelief over belief. And whoever does so among you - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
1259 9 The Repentance 24 Say, [O Muhammad], "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people."
1260 9 The Repentance 25 Allah has already given you victory in many regions and [even] on the day of Hunayn, when your great number pleased you, but it did not avail you at all, and the earth was confining for you with its vastness; then you turned back, fleeing.
1261 9 The Repentance 26 Then Allah sent down His tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers and sent down soldiers angels whom you did not see and punished those who disbelieved. And that is the recompense of the disbelievers.
1262 9 The Repentance 27 Then Allah will accept repentance after that for whom He wills; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1263 9 The Repentance 28 O you who have believed, indeed the polytheists are unclean, so let them not approach al-Masjid al-Haram after this, their [final] year. And if you fear privation, Allah will enrich you from His bounty if He wills. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1264 9 The Repentance 29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
1265 9 The Repentance 30 The Jews say, "Ezra is the son of Allah "; and the Christians say, "The Messiah is the son of Allah." That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?
1266 9 The Repentance 31 They have taken their scholars and monks as lords besides Allah, and [also] the Messiah, the son of Mary. And they were not commanded except to worship one God; there is no deity except Him. Exalted is He above whatever they associate with Him.
1267 9 The Repentance 32 They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.
1268 9 The Repentance 33 It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.
1269 9 The Repentance 34 O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert [them] from the way of Allah. And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah - give them tidings of a painful punishment.
1270 9 The Repentance 35 The Day when it will be heated in the fire of Hell and seared therewith will be their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, [it will be said], "This is what you hoarded for yourselves, so taste what you used to hoard."
1271 9 The Repentance 36 Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve [lunar] months in the register of Allah [from] the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them. And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous [who fear Him].
1272 9 The Repentance 37 Indeed, the postponing [of restriction within sacred months] is an increase in disbelief by which those who have disbelieved are led [further] astray. They make it lawful one year and unlawful another year to correspond to the number made unlawful by Allah and [thus] make lawful what Allah has made unlawful. Made pleasing to them is the evil of their deeds; and Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
1273 9 The Repentance 38 O you who have believed, what is [the matter] with you that, when you are told to go forth in the cause of Allah, you adhere heavily to the earth? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But what is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter except a [very] little.
1274 9 The Repentance 39 If you do not go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allah is over all things competent.
1275 9 The Repentance 40 If you do not aid the Prophet - Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, "Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us." And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah - that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1276 9 The Repentance 41 Go forth, whether light or heavy, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah. That is better for you, if you only knew.
1277 9 The Repentance 42 Had it been an easy gain and a moderate trip, the hypocrites would have followed you, but distant to them was the journey. And they will swear by Allah, "If we were able, we would have gone forth with you," destroying themselves [through false oaths], and Allah knows that indeed they are liars.
1278 9 The Repentance 43 May Allah pardon you, [O Muhammad]; why did you give them permission [to remain behind]? [You should not have] until it was evident to you who were truthful and you knew [who were] the liars.
1279 9 The Repentance 44 Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day would not ask permission of you to be excused from striving with their wealth and their lives. And Allah is Knowing of those who fear Him.
1280 9 The Repentance 45 Only those would ask permission of you who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and whose hearts have doubted, and they, in their doubt, are hesitating.
1281 9 The Repentance 46 And if they had intended to go forth, they would have prepared for it [some] preparation. But Allah disliked their being sent, so He kept them back, and they were told, "Remain [behind] with those who remain."
1282 9 The Repentance 47 Had they gone forth with you, they would not have increased you except in confusion, and they would have been active among you, seeking [to cause] you fitnah. And among you are avid listeners to them. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers.
1283 9 The Repentance 48 They had already desired dissension before and had upset matters for you until the truth came and the ordinance of Allah appeared, while they were averse.
1284 9 The Repentance 49 And among them is he who says, "Permit me [to remain at home] and do not put me to trial." Unquestionably, into trial they have fallen. And indeed, Hell will encompass the disbelievers.
1285 9 The Repentance 50 If good befalls you, it distresses them; but if disaster strikes you, they say, "We took our matter [in hand] before," and turn away while they are rejoicing.
1286 9 The Repentance 51 Say, "Never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us; He is our protector." And upon Allah let the believers rely.
1287 9 The Repentance 52 Say, "Do you await for us except one of the two best things while we await for you that Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or at our hands? So wait; indeed we, along with you, are waiting."
1288 9 The Repentance 53 Say, "Spend willingly or unwillingly; never will it be accepted from you. Indeed, you have been a defiantly disobedient people."
1289 9 The Repentance 54 And what prevents their expenditures from being accepted from them but that they have disbelieved in Allah and in His Messenger and that they come not to prayer except while they are lazy and that they do not spend except while they are unwilling.
1290 9 The Repentance 55 So let not their wealth or their children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in worldly life and that their souls should depart [at death] while they are disbelievers.
1291 9 The Repentance 56 And they swear by Allah that they are from among you while they are not from among you; but they are a people who are afraid.
1292 9 The Repentance 57 If they could find a refuge or some caves or any place to enter [and hide], they would turn to it while they run heedlessly.
1293 9 The Repentance 58 And among them are some who criticize you concerning the [distribution of] charities. If they are given from them, they approve; but if they are not given from them, at once they become angry.
1294 9 The Repentance 59 If only they had been satisfied with what Allah and His Messenger gave them and said, "Sufficient for us is Allah; Allah will give us of His bounty, and [so will] His Messenger; indeed, we are desirous toward Allah," [it would have been better for them].
1295 9 The Repentance 60 Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1296 9 The Repentance 61 And among them are those who abuse the Prophet and say, "He is an ear." Say, "[It is] an ear of goodness for you that believes in Allah and believes the believers and [is] a mercy to those who believe among you." And those who abuse the Messenger of Allah - for them is a painful punishment.
1297 9 The Repentance 62 They swear by Allah to you [Muslims] to satisfy you. But Allah and His Messenger are more worthy for them to satisfy, if they should be believers.
1298 9 The Repentance 63 Do they not know that whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger - that for him is the fire of Hell, wherein he will abide eternally? That is the great disgrace.
1299 9 The Repentance 64 They hypocrites are apprehensive lest a surah be revealed about them, informing them of what is in their hearts. Say, "Mock [as you wish]; indeed, Allah will expose that which you fear."
1300 9 The Repentance 65 And if you ask them, they will surely say, "We were only conversing and playing." Say, "Is it Allah and His verses and His Messenger that you were mocking?"
1301 9 The Repentance 66 Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after your belief. If We pardon one faction of you - We will punish another faction because they were criminals.
1302 9 The Repentance 67 The hypocrite men and hypocrite women are of one another. They enjoin what is wrong and forbid what is right and close their hands. They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them [accordingly]. Indeed, the hypocrites - it is they who are the defiantly disobedient.
1303 9 The Repentance 68 Allah has promised the hypocrite men and hypocrite women and the disbelievers the fire of Hell, wherein they will abide eternally. It is sufficient for them. And Allah has cursed them, and for them is an enduring punishment.
1304 9 The Repentance 69 [You disbelievers are] like those before you; they were stronger than you in power and more abundant in wealth and children. They enjoyed their portion [of worldly enjoyment], and you have enjoyed your portion as those before you enjoyed their portion, and you have engaged [in vanities] like that in which they engaged. [It is] those whose deeds have become worthless in this world and in the Hereafter, and it is they who are the losers.
1305 9 The Repentance 70 Has there not reached them the news of those before them - the people of Noah and [the tribes of] 'Aad and Thamud and the people of Abraham and the companions of Madyan and the towns overturned? Their messengers came to them with clear proofs. And Allah would never have wronged them, but they were wronging themselves.
1306 9 The Repentance 71 The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those - Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.
1307 9 The Repentance 72 Allah has promised the believing men and believing women gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence; but approval from Allah is greater. It is that which is the great attainment.
1308 9 The Repentance 73 O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.
1309 9 The Repentance 74 They swear by Allah that they did not say [anything against the Prophet] while they had said the word of disbelief and disbelieved after their [pretense of] Islam and planned that which they were not to attain. And they were not resentful except [for the fact] that Allah and His Messenger had enriched them of His bounty. So if they repent, it is better for them; but if they turn away, Allah will punish them with a painful punishment in this world and the Hereafter. And there will not be for them on earth any protector or helper.
1310 9 The Repentance 75 And among them are those who made a covenant with Allah, [saying], "If He should give us from His bounty, we will surely spend in charity, and we will surely be among the righteous."
1311 9 The Repentance 76 But when he gave them from His bounty, they were stingy with it and turned away while they refused.
1312 9 The Repentance 77 So He penalized them with hypocrisy in their hearts until the Day they will meet Him - because they failed Allah in what they promised Him and because they [habitually] used to lie.
1313 9 The Repentance 78 Did they not know that Allah knows their secrets and their private conversations and that Allah is the Knower of the unseen?
1314 9 The Repentance 79 Those who criticize the contributors among the believers concerning [their] charities and [criticize] the ones who find nothing [to spend] except their effort, so they ridicule them - Allah will ridicule them, and they will have a painful punishment.
1315 9 The Repentance 80 Ask forgiveness for them, [O Muhammad], or do not ask forgiveness for them. If you should ask forgiveness for them seventy times - never will Allah forgive them. That is because they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger, and Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.
1316 9 The Repentance 81 Those who remained behind rejoiced in their staying [at home] after [the departure of] the Messenger of Allah and disliked to strive with their wealth and their lives in the cause of Allah and said, "Do not go forth in the heat." Say, "The fire of Hell is more intensive in heat" - if they would but understand.
1317 9 The Repentance 82 So let them laugh a little and [then] weep much as recompense for what they used to earn.
1318 9 The Repentance 83 If Allah should return you to a faction of them [after the expedition] and then they ask your permission to go out [to battle], say, "You will not go out with me, ever, and you will never fight with me an enemy. Indeed, you were satisfied with sitting [at home] the first time, so sit [now] with those who stay behind."
1319 9 The Repentance 84 And do not pray [the funeral prayer, O Muhammad], over any of them who has died - ever - or stand at his grave. Indeed, they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger and died while they were defiantly disobedient.
1320 9 The Repentance 85 And let not their wealth and their children impress you. Allah only intends to punish them through them in this world and that their souls should depart [at death] while they are disbelievers.
1321 9 The Repentance 86 And when a surah was revealed [enjoining them] to believe in Allah and to fight with His Messenger, those of wealth among them asked your permission [to stay back] and said, "Leave us to be with them who sit [at home]."
1322 9 The Repentance 87 They were satisfied to be with those who stay behind, and their hearts were sealed over, so they do not understand.
1323 9 The Repentance 88 But the Messenger and those who believed with him fought with their wealth and their lives. Those will have [all that is] good, and it is those who are the successful.
1324 9 The Repentance 89 Allah has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide eternally. That is the great attainment.
1325 9 The Repentance 90 And those with excuses among the bedouins came to be permitted [to remain], and they who had lied to Allah and His Messenger sat [at home]. There will strike those who disbelieved among them a painful punishment.
1326 9 The Repentance 91 There is not upon the weak or upon the ill or upon those who do not find anything to spend any discomfort when they are sincere to Allah and His Messenger. There is not upon the doers of good any cause [for blame]. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1327 9 The Repentance 92 Nor [is there blame] upon those who, when they came to you that you might give them mounts, you said, "I can find nothing for you to ride upon." They turned back while their eyes overflowed with tears out of grief that they could not find something to spend [for the cause of Allah].
1328 9 The Repentance 93 The cause [for blame] is only upon those who ask permission of you while they are rich. They are satisfied to be with those who stay behind, and Allah has sealed over their hearts, so they do not know.
1329 9 The Repentance 94 They will make excuses to you when you have returned to them. Say, "Make no excuse - never will we believe you. Allah has already informed us of your news. And Allah will observe your deeds, and [so will] His Messenger; then you will be taken back to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you of what you used to do."
1330 9 The Repentance 95 They will swear by Allah to you when you return to them that you would leave them alone. So leave them alone; indeed they are evil; and their refuge is Hell as recompense for what they had been earning.
1331 9 The Repentance 96 They swear to you so that you might be satisfied with them. But if you should be satisfied with them - indeed, Allah is not satisfied with a defiantly disobedient people.
1332 9 The Repentance 97 The bedouins are stronger in disbelief and hypocrisy and more likely not to know the limits of what [laws] Allah has revealed to His Messenger. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1333 9 The Repentance 98 And among the bedouins are some who consider what they spend as a loss and await for you turns of misfortune. Upon them will be a misfortune of evil. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
1334 9 The Repentance 99 But among the bedouins are some who believe in Allah and the Last Day and consider what they spend as means of nearness to Allah and of [obtaining] invocations of the Messenger. Unquestionably, it is a means of nearness for them. Allah will admit them to His mercy. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1335 9 The Repentance 100 And the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct - Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment.
1336 9 The Repentance 101 And among those around you of the bedouins are hypocrites, and [also] from the people of Madinah. They have become accustomed to hypocrisy. You, [O Muhammad], do not know them, [but] We know them. We will punish them twice [in this world]; then they will be returned to a great punishment.
1337 9 The Repentance 102 And [there are] others who have acknowledged their sins. They had mixed a righteous deed with another that was bad. Perhaps Allah will turn to them in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1338 9 The Repentance 103 Take, [O, Muhammad], from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and invoke [Allah 's blessings] upon them. Indeed, your invocations are reassurance for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
1339 9 The Repentance 104 Do they not know that it is Allah who accepts repentance from His servants and receives charities and that it is Allah who is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful?
1340 9 The Repentance 105 And say, "Do [as you will], for Allah will see your deeds, and [so, will] His Messenger and the believers. And you will be returned to the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, and He will inform you of what you used to do."
1341 9 The Repentance 106 And [there are] others deferred until the command of Allah - whether He will punish them or whether He will forgive them. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1342 9 The Repentance 107 And [there are] those [hypocrites] who took for themselves a mosque for causing harm and disbelief and division among the believers and as a station for whoever had warred against Allah and His Messenger before. And they will surely swear, "We intended only the best." And Allah testifies that indeed they are liars.
1343 9 The Repentance 108 Do not stand [for prayer] within it - ever. A mosque founded on righteousness from the first day is more worthy for you to stand in. Within it are men who love to purify themselves; and Allah loves those who purify themselves.
1344 9 The Repentance 109 Then is one who laid the foundation of his building on righteousness [with fear] from Allah and [seeking] His approval better or one who laid the foundation of his building on the edge of a bank about to collapse, so it collapsed with him into the fire of Hell? And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
1345 9 The Repentance 110 Their building which they built will not cease to be a [cause of] skepticism in their hearts until their hearts are stopped. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
1346 9 The Repentance 111 Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.
1347 9 The Repentance 112 [Such believers are] the repentant, the worshippers, the praisers [of Allah], the travelers [for His cause], those who bow and prostrate [in prayer], those who enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong, and those who observe the limits [set by] Allah. And give good tidings to the believers.
1348 9 The Repentance 113 It is not for the Prophet and those who have believed to ask forgiveness for the polytheists, even if they were relatives, after it has become clear to them that they are companions of Hellfire.
1349 9 The Repentance 114 And the request of forgiveness of Abraham for his father was only because of a promise he had made to him. But when it became apparent to Abraham that his father was an enemy to Allah, he disassociated himself from him. Indeed was Abraham compassionate and patient.
1350 9 The Repentance 115 And Allah would not let a people stray after He has guided them until He makes clear to them what they should avoid. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of all things.
1351 9 The Repentance 116 Indeed, to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He gives life and causes death. And you have not besides Allah any protector or any helper.
1352 9 The Repentance 117 Allah has already forgiven the Prophet and the Muhajireen and the Ansar who followed him in the hour of difficulty after the hearts of a party of them had almost inclined [to doubt], and then He forgave them. Indeed, He was to them Kind and Merciful.
1353 9 The Repentance 118 And [He also forgave] the three who were left behind [and regretted their error] to the point that the earth closed in on them in spite of its vastness and their souls confined them and they were certain that there is no refuge from Allah except in Him. Then He turned to them so they could repent. Indeed, Allah is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
1354 9 The Repentance 119 O you who have believed, fear Allah and be with those who are true.
1355 9 The Repentance 120 It was not [proper] for the people of Madinah and those surrounding them of the bedouins that they remain behind after [the departure of] the Messenger of Allah or that they prefer themselves over his self. That is because they are not afflicted by thirst or fatigue or hunger in the cause of Allah, nor do they tread on any ground that enrages the disbelievers, nor do they inflict upon an enemy any infliction but that is registered for them as a righteous deed. Indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of the doers of good.
1356 9 The Repentance 121 Nor do they spend an expenditure, small or large, or cross a valley but that it is registered for them that Allah may reward them for the best of what they were doing.
1357 9 The Repentance 122 And it is not for the believers to go forth [to battle] all at once. For there should separate from every division of them a group [remaining] to obtain understanding in the religion and warn their people when they return to them that they might be cautious.
1358 9 The Repentance 123 O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.
1359 9 The Repentance 124 And whenever a surah is revealed, there are among the hypocrites those who say, "Which of you has this increased faith?" As for those who believed, it has increased them in faith, while they are rejoicing.
1360 9 The Repentance 125 But as for those in whose hearts is disease, it has [only] increased them in evil [in addition] to their evil. And they will have died while they are disbelievers.
1361 9 The Repentance 126 Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice but then they do not repent nor do they remember?
1362 9 The Repentance 127 And whenever a surah is revealed, they look at each other, [saying], "Does anyone see you?" and then they dismiss themselves. Allah has dismissed their hearts because they are a people who do not understand.
1363 9 The Repentance 128 There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful.
1364 9 The Repentance 129 But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, "Sufficient for me is Allah; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne."
1365 10 Jonas 1 Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the wise Book
1366 10 Jonas 2 Have the people been amazed that We revealed [revelation] to a man from among them, [saying], "Warn mankind and give good tidings to those who believe that they will have a [firm] precedence of honor with their Lord"? [But] the disbelievers say, "Indeed, this is an obvious magician."
1367 10 Jonas 3 Indeed, your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne, arranging the matter [of His creation]. There is no intercessor except after His permission. That is Allah, your Lord, so worship Him. Then will you not remember?
1368 10 Jonas 4 To Him is your return all together. [It is] the promise of Allah [which is] truth. Indeed, He begins the [process of] creation and then repeats it that He may reward those who have believed and done righteous deeds, in justice. But those who disbelieved will have a drink of scalding water and a painful punishment for what they used to deny.
1369 10 Jonas 5 It is He who made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light and determined for it phases - that you may know the number of years and account [of time]. Allah has not created this except in truth. He details the signs for a people who know
1370 10 Jonas 6 Indeed, in the alternation of the night and the day and [in] what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth are signs for a people who fear Allah
1371 10 Jonas 7 Indeed, those who do not expect the meeting with Us and are satisfied with the life of this world and feel secure therein and those who are heedless of Our signs
1372 10 Jonas 8 For those their refuge will be the Fire because of what they used to earn.
1373 10 Jonas 9 Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds - their Lord will guide them because of their faith. Beneath them rivers will flow in the Gardens of Pleasure
1374 10 Jonas 10 Their call therein will be, "Exalted are You, O Allah," and their greeting therein will be, "Peace." And the last of their call will be, "Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds!"
1375 10 Jonas 11 And if Allah was to hasten for the people the evil [they invoke] as He hastens for them the good, their term would have been ended for them. But We leave the ones who do not expect the meeting with Us, in their transgression, wandering blindly
1376 10 Jonas 12 And when affliction touches man, he calls upon Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove from him his affliction, he continues [in disobedience] as if he had never called upon Us to [remove] an affliction that touched him. Thus is made pleasing to the transgressors that which they have been doing
1377 10 Jonas 13 And We had already destroyed generations before you when they wronged, and their messengers had come to them with clear proofs, but they were not to believe. Thus do We recompense the criminal people
1378 10 Jonas 14 Then We made you successors in the land after them so that We may observe how you will do.
1379 10 Jonas 15 And when Our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, those who do not expect the meeting with Us say, "Bring us a Qur'an other than this or change it." Say, [O Muhammad], "It is not for me to change it on my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me. Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day."
1380 10 Jonas 16 Say, "If Allah had willed, I would not have recited it to you, nor would He have made it known to you, for I had remained among you a lifetime before it. Then will you not reason?"
1381 10 Jonas 17 So who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah or denies His signs? Indeed, the criminals will not succeed
1382 10 Jonas 18 And they worship other than Allah that which neither harms them nor benefits them, and they say, "These are our intercessors with Allah " Say, "Do you inform Allah of something He does not know in the heavens or on the earth?" Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him
1383 10 Jonas 19 And mankind was not but one community [united in religion], but [then] they differed. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them [immediately] concerning that over which they differ.
1384 10 Jonas 20 And they say, "Why is a sign not sent down to him from his Lord?" So say, "The unseen is only for Allah [to administer], so wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait."
1385 10 Jonas 21 And when We give the people a taste of mercy after adversity has touched them, at once they conspire against Our verses. Say, "Allah is swifter in strategy." Indeed, Our messengers record that which you conspire
1386 10 Jonas 22 It is He who enables you to travel on land and sea until, when you are in ships and they sail with them by a good wind and they rejoice therein, there comes a storm wind and the waves come upon them from everywhere and they assume that they are surrounded, supplicating Allah, sincere to Him in religion, "If You should save us from this, we will surely be among the thankful."
1387 10 Jonas 23 But when He saves them, at once they commit injustice upon the earth without right. O mankind, your injustice is only against yourselves, [being merely] the enjoyment of worldly life. Then to Us is your return, and We will inform you of what you used to do.
1388 10 Jonas 24 The example of [this] worldly life is but like rain which We have sent down from the sky that the plants of the earth absorb - [those] from which men and livestock eat - until, when the earth has taken on its adornment and is beautified and its people suppose that they have capability over it, there comes to it Our command by night or by day, and We make it as a harvest, as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus do We explain in detail the signs for a people who give thought.
1389 10 Jonas 25 And Allah invites to the Home of Peace and guides whom He wills to a straight path
1390 10 Jonas 26 For them who have done good is the best [reward] and extra. No darkness will cover their faces, nor humiliation. Those are companions of Paradise; they will abide therein eternally
1391 10 Jonas 27 But they who have earned [blame for] evil doings - the recompense of an evil deed is its equivalent, and humiliation will cover them. They will have from Allah no protector. It will be as if their faces are covered with pieces of the night - so dark [are they]. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.
1392 10 Jonas 28 And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will gather them all together - then We will say to those who associated others with Allah, "[Remain in] your place, you and your 'partners.' " Then We will separate them, and their "partners" will say, "You did not used to worship us,
1393 10 Jonas 29 And sufficient is Allah as a witness between us and you that we were of your worship unaware."
1394 10 Jonas 30 There, [on that Day], every soul will be put to trial for what it did previously, and they will be returned to Allah, their master, the Truth, and lost from them is whatever they used to invent.
1395 10 Jonas 31 Say, "Who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Or who controls hearing and sight and who brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and who arranges [every] matter?" They will say, "Allah," so say, "Then will you not fear Him?"
1396 10 Jonas 32 For that is Allah, your Lord, the Truth. And what can be beyond truth except error? So how are you averted?
1397 10 Jonas 33 Thus the word of your Lord has come into effect upon those who defiantly disobeyed - that they will not believe.
1398 10 Jonas 34 Say, "Are there of your 'partners' any who begins creation and then repeats it?" Say, "Allah begins creation and then repeats it, so how are you deluded?"
1399 10 Jonas 35 Say, "Are there of your 'partners' any who guides to the truth?" Say, "Allah guides to the truth. So is He who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed or he who guides not unless he is guided? Then what is [wrong] with you - how do you judge?"
1400 10 Jonas 36 And most of them follow not except assumption. Indeed, assumption avails not against the truth at all. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what they do.
1401 10 Jonas 37 And it was not [possible] for this Qur'an to be produced by other than Allah, but [it is] a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of the [former] Scripture, about which there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds.
1402 10 Jonas 38 Or do they say [about the Prophet], "He invented it?" Say, "Then bring forth a surah like it and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful."
1403 10 Jonas 39 Rather, they have denied that which they encompass not in knowledge and whose interpretation has not yet come to them. Thus did those before them deny. Then observe how was the end of the wrongdoers.
1404 10 Jonas 40 And of them are those who believe in it, and of them are those who do not believe in it. And your Lord is most knowing of the corrupters
1405 10 Jonas 41 And if they deny you, [O Muhammad], then say, "For me are my deeds, and for you are your deeds. You are disassociated from what I do, and I am disassociated from what you do."
1406 10 Jonas 42 And among them are those who listen to you. But can you cause the deaf to hear, although they will not use reason?
1407 10 Jonas 43 And among them are those who look at you. But can you guide the blind although they will not [attempt to] see?
1408 10 Jonas 44 Indeed, Allah does not wrong the people at all, but it is the people who are wronging themselves.
1409 10 Jonas 45 And on the Day when He will gather them, [it will be] as if they had not remained [in the world] but an hour of the day, [and] they will know each other. Those will have lost who denied the meeting with Allah and were not guided
1410 10 Jonas 46 And whether We show you some of what We promise them, [O Muhammad], or We take you in death, to Us is their return; then, [either way], Allah is a witness concerning what they are doing
1411 10 Jonas 47 And for every nation is a messenger. So when their messenger comes, it will be judged between them in justice, and they will not be wronged
1412 10 Jonas 48 And they say, "When is [the fulfillment of] this promise, if you should be truthful?"
1413 10 Jonas 49 Say, "I possess not for myself any harm or benefit except what Allah should will. For every nation is a [specified] term. When their time has come, then they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it]."
1414 10 Jonas 50 Say, "Have you considered: if His punishment should come to you by night or by day - for which [aspect] of it would the criminals be impatient?"
1415 10 Jonas 51 Then is it that when it has [actually] occurred you will believe in it? Now? And you were [once] for it impatient
1416 10 Jonas 52 Then it will be said to those who had wronged, "Taste the punishment of eternity; are you being recompensed except for what you used to earn?"
1417 10 Jonas 53 And they ask information of you, [O Muhammad], "Is it true?" Say, "Yes, by my Lord. Indeed, it is truth; and you will not cause failure [to Allah]."
1418 10 Jonas 54 And if each soul that wronged had everything on earth, it would offer it in ransom. And they will confide regret when they see the punishment; and they will be judged in justice, and they will not be wronged
1419 10 Jonas 55 Unquestionably, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Unquestionably, the promise of Allah is truth, but most of them do not know
1420 10 Jonas 56 He gives life and causes death, and to Him you will be returned
1421 10 Jonas 57 O mankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers.
1422 10 Jonas 58 Say, "In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy - in that let them rejoice; it is better than what they accumulate."
1423 10 Jonas 59 Say, "Have you seen what Allah has sent down to you of provision of which you have made [some] lawful and [some] unlawful?" Say, "Has Allah permitted you [to do so], or do you invent [something] about Allah?"
1424 10 Jonas 60 And what will be the supposition of those who invent falsehood about Allah on the Day of Resurrection? Indeed, Allah is full of bounty to the people, but most of them are not grateful."
1425 10 Jonas 61 And, [O Muhammad], you are not [engaged] in any matter or recite any of the Qur'an and you [people] do not do any deed except that We are witness over you when you are involved in it. And not absent from your Lord is any [part] of an atom's weight within the earth or within the heaven or [anything] smaller than that or greater but that it is in a clear register.
1426 10 Jonas 62 Unquestionably, [for] the allies of Allah there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve
1427 10 Jonas 63 Those who believed and were fearing Allah
1428 10 Jonas 64 For them are good tidings in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. No change is there in the words of Allah. That is what is the great attainment.
1429 10 Jonas 65 And let not their speech grieve you. Indeed, honor [due to power] belongs to Allah entirely. He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
1430 10 Jonas 66 Unquestionably, to Allah belongs whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth. And those who invoke other than Allah do not [actually] follow [His] "partners." They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying
1431 10 Jonas 67 It is He who made for you the night to rest therein and the day, giving sight. Indeed in that are signs for a people who listen.
1432 10 Jonas 68 They have said, "Allah has taken a son." Exalted is He; He is the [one] Free of need. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. You have no authority for this [claim]. Do you say about Allah that which you do not know?
1433 10 Jonas 69 Say, "Indeed, those who invent falsehood about Allah will not succeed."
1434 10 Jonas 70 [For them is brief] enjoyment in this world; then to Us is their return; then We will make them taste the severe punishment because they used to disbelieve
1435 10 Jonas 71 And recite to them the news of Noah, when he said to his people, "O my people, if my residence and my reminding of the signs of Allah has become burdensome upon you - then I have relied upon Allah. So resolve upon your plan and [call upon] your associates. Then let not your plan be obscure to you. Then carry it out upon me and do not give me respite.
1436 10 Jonas 72 And if you turn away [from my advice] then no payment have I asked of you. My reward is only from Allah, and I have been commanded to be of the Muslims."
1437 10 Jonas 73 And they denied him, so We saved him and those with him in the ship and made them successors, and We drowned those who denied Our signs. Then see how was the end of those who were warned.
1438 10 Jonas 74 Then We sent after him messengers to their peoples, and they came to them with clear proofs. But they were not to believe in that which they had denied before. Thus We seal over the hearts of the transgressors
1439 10 Jonas 75 Then We sent after them Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh and his establishment with Our signs, but they behaved arrogantly and were a criminal people
1440 10 Jonas 76 So when there came to them the truth from Us, they said, "Indeed, this is obvious magic."
1441 10 Jonas 77 Moses said, "Do you say [thus] about the truth when it has come to you? Is this magic? But magicians will not succeed."
1442 10 Jonas 78 They said, "Have you come to us to turn us away from that upon which we found our fathers and so that you two may have grandeur in the land? And we are not believers in you."
1443 10 Jonas 79 And Pharaoh said, "Bring to me every learned magician."
1444 10 Jonas 80 So when the magicians came, Moses said to them, "Throw down whatever you will throw."
1445 10 Jonas 81 And when they had thrown, Moses said, "What you have brought is [only] magic. Indeed, Allah will expose its worthlessness. Indeed, Allah does not amend the work of corrupters.
1446 10 Jonas 82 And Allah will establish the truth by His words, even if the criminals dislike it."
1447 10 Jonas 83 But no one believed Moses, except [some] youths among his people, for fear of Pharaoh and his establishment that they would persecute them. And indeed, Pharaoh was haughty within the land, and indeed, he was of the transgressors
1448 10 Jonas 84 And Moses said, "O my people, if you have believed in Allah, then rely upon Him, if you should be Muslims."
1449 10 Jonas 85 So they said, "Upon Allah do we rely. Our Lord, make us not [objects of] trial for the wrongdoing people
1450 10 Jonas 86 And save us by Your mercy from the disbelieving people."
1451 10 Jonas 87 And We inspired to Moses and his brother, "Settle your people in Egypt in houses and make your houses [facing the] qiblah and establish prayer and give good tidings to the believers."
1452 10 Jonas 88 And Moses said, "Our Lord, indeed You have given Pharaoh and his establishment splendor and wealth in the worldly life, our Lord, that they may lead [men] astray from Your way. Our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts so that they will not believe until they see the painful punishment."
1453 10 Jonas 89 [Allah] said, "Your supplication has been answered." So remain on a right course and follow not the way of those who do not know."
1454 10 Jonas 90 And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, "I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims."
1455 10 Jonas 91 Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters?
1456 10 Jonas 92 So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless
1457 10 Jonas 93 And We had certainty settled the Children of Israel in an agreeable settlement and provided them with good things. And they did not differ until [after] knowledge had come to them. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ
1458 10 Jonas 94 So if you are in doubt, [O Muhammad], about that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who have been reading the Scripture before you. The truth has certainly come to you from your Lord, so never be among the doubters.
1459 10 Jonas 95 And never be of those who deny the signs of Allah and [thus] be among the losers.
1460 10 Jonas 96 Indeed, those upon whom the word of your Lord has come into effect will not believe,
1461 10 Jonas 97 Even if every sign should come to them, until they see the painful punishment.
1462 10 Jonas 98 Then has there not been a [single] city that believed so its faith benefited it except the people of Jonah? When they believed, We removed from them the punishment of disgrace in worldly life and gave them enjoyment for a time.
1463 10 Jonas 99 And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed - all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers?
1464 10 Jonas 100 And it is not for a soul to believe except by permission of Allah, and He will place defilement upon those who will not use reason.
1465 10 Jonas 101 Say, "Observe what is in the heavens and earth." But of no avail will be signs or warners to a people who do not believe
1466 10 Jonas 102 So do they wait except for like [what occurred in] the days of those who passed on before them? Say, "Then wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait."
1467 10 Jonas 103 Then We will save our messengers and those who have believed. Thus, it is an obligation upon Us that We save the believers
1468 10 Jonas 104 Say, [O Muhammad], "O people, if you are in doubt as to my religion - then I do not worship those which you worship besides Allah; but I worship Allah, who causes your death. And I have been commanded to be of the believers
1469 10 Jonas 105 And [commanded], 'Direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth, and never be of those who associate others with Allah;
1470 10 Jonas 106 And do not invoke besides Allah that which neither benefits you nor harms you, for if you did, then indeed you would be of the wrongdoers.'"
1471 10 Jonas 107 And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful
1472 10 Jonas 108 Say, "O mankind, the truth has come to you from your Lord, so whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul, and whoever goes astray only goes astray [in violation] against it. And I am not over you a manager."
1473 10 Jonas 109 And follow what is revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and be patient until Allah will judge. And He is the best of judges.
1474 11 Hud 1 Alif, Lam, Ra. [This is] a Book whose verses are perfected and then presented in detail from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted.
1475 11 Hud 2 [Through a messenger, saying], "Do not worship except Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a warner and a bringer of good tidings,"
1476 11 Hud 3 And [saying], "Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.
1477 11 Hud 4 To Allah is your return, and He is over all things competent."
1478 11 Hud 5 Unquestionably, they the disbelievers turn away their breasts to hide themselves from Him. Unquestionably, [even] when they cover themselves in their clothing, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.
1479 11 Hud 6 And there is no creature on earth but that upon Allah is its provision, and He knows its place of dwelling and place of storage. All is in a clear register.
1480 11 Hud 7 And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days - and His Throne had been upon water - that He might test you as to which of you is best in deed. But if you say, "Indeed, you are resurrected after death," those who disbelieve will surely say, "This is not but obvious magic."
1481 11 Hud 8 And if We hold back from them the punishment for a limited time, they will surely say, "What detains it?" Unquestionably, on the Day it comes to them, it will not be averted from them, and they will be enveloped by what they used to ridicule.
1482 11 Hud 9 And if We give man a taste of mercy from Us and then We withdraw it from him, indeed, he is despairing and ungrateful.
1483 11 Hud 10 But if We give him a taste of favor after hardship has touched him, he will surely say, "Bad times have left me." Indeed, he is exultant and boastful -
1484 11 Hud 11 Except for those who are patient and do righteous deeds; those will have forgiveness and great reward.
1485 11 Hud 12 Then would you possibly leave [out] some of what is revealed to you, or is your breast constrained by it because they say, "Why has there not been sent down to him a treasure or come with him an angel?" But you are only a warner. And Allah is Disposer of all things.
1486 11 Hud 13 Or do they say, "He invented it"? Say, "Then bring ten surahs like it that have been invented and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful."
1487 11 Hud 14 And if they do not respond to you - then know that the Qur'an was revealed with the knowledge of Allah and that there is no deity except Him. Then, would you [not] be Muslims?
1488 11 Hud 15 Whoever desires the life of this world and its adornments - We fully repay them for their deeds therein, and they therein will not be deprived.
1489 11 Hud 16 Those are the ones for whom there is not in the Hereafter but the Fire. And lost is what they did therein, and worthless is what they used to do.
1490 11 Hud 17 So is one who [stands] upon a clear evidence from his Lord [like the aforementioned]? And a witness from Him follows it, and before it was the Scripture of Moses to lead and as mercy. Those [believers in the former revelations] believe in the Qur'an. But whoever disbelieves in it from the [various] factions - the Fire is his promised destination. So be not in doubt about it. Indeed, it is the truth from your Lord, but most of the people do not believe.
1491 11 Hud 18 And who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah? Those will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, "These are the ones who lied against their Lord." Unquestionably, the curse of Allah is upon the wrongdoers.
1492 11 Hud 19 Who averted [people] from the way of Allah and sought to make it [seem] deviant while they, concerning the Hereafter, were disbelievers.
1493 11 Hud 20 Those were not causing failure [to Allah] on earth, nor did they have besides Allah any protectors. For them the punishment will be multiplied. They were not able to hear, nor did they see.
1494 11 Hud 21 Those are the ones who will have lost themselves, and lost from them is what they used to invent.
1495 11 Hud 22 Assuredly, it is they in the Hereafter who will be the greatest losers.
1496 11 Hud 23 Indeed, they who have believed and done righteous deeds and humbled themselves to their Lord - those are the companions of Paradise; they will abide eternally therein.
1497 11 Hud 24 The example of the two parties is like the blind and deaf, and the seeing and hearing. Are they equal in comparison? Then, will you not remember?
1498 11 Hud 25 And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, [saying], "Indeed, I am to you a clear warner
1499 11 Hud 26 That you not worship except Allah. Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a painful day."
1500 11 Hud 27 So the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, "We do not see you but as a man like ourselves, and we do not see you followed except by those who are the lowest of us [and] at first suggestion. And we do not see in you over us any merit; rather, we think you are liars."
1501 11 Hud 28 He said, "O my people have you considered: if I should be upon clear evidence from my Lord while He has given me mercy from Himself but it has been made unapparent to you, should we force it upon you while you are averse to it?
1502 11 Hud 29 And O my people, I ask not of you for it any wealth. My reward is not but from Allah. And I am not one to drive away those who have believed. Indeed, they will meet their Lord, but I see that you are a people behaving ignorantly.
1503 11 Hud 30 And O my people, who would protect me from Allah if I drove them away? Then will you not be reminded?
1504 11 Hud 31 And I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of Allah or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel, nor do I say of those upon whom your eyes look down that Allah will never grant them any good. Allah is most knowing of what is within their souls. Indeed, I would then be among the wrongdoers."
1505 11 Hud 32 They said, "O Noah, you have disputed us and been frequent in dispute of us. So bring us what you threaten us, if you should be of the truthful."
1506 11 Hud 33 He said, "Allah will only bring it to you if He wills, and you will not cause [Him] failure.
1507 11 Hud 34 And my advice will not benefit you - although I wished to advise you - If Allah should intend to put you in error. He is your Lord, and to Him you will be returned."
1508 11 Hud 35 Or do they say [about Prophet Muhammad], "He invented it"? Say, "If I have invented it, then upon me is [the consequence of] my crime; but I am innocent of what [crimes] you commit."
1509 11 Hud 36 And it was revealed to Noah that, "No one will believe from your people except those who have already believed, so do not be distressed by what they have been doing.
1510 11 Hud 37 And construct the ship under Our observation and Our inspiration and do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are [to be] drowned."
1511 11 Hud 38 And he constructed the ship, and whenever an assembly of the eminent of his people passed by him, they ridiculed him. He said, "If you ridicule us, then we will ridicule you just as you ridicule.
1512 11 Hud 39 And you are going to know who will get a punishment that will disgrace him [on earth] and upon whom will descend an enduring punishment [in the Hereafter]."
1513 11 Hud 40 [So it was], until when Our command came and the oven overflowed, We said, "Load upon the ship of each [creature] two mates and your family, except those about whom the word has preceded, and [include] whoever has believed." But none had believed with him, except a few.
1514 11 Hud 41 And [Noah] said, "Embark therein; in the name of Allah is its course and its anchorage. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."
1515 11 Hud 42 And it sailed with them through waves like mountains, and Noah called to his son who was apart [from them], "O my son, come aboard with us and be not with the disbelievers."
1516 11 Hud 43 [But] he said, "I will take refuge on a mountain to protect me from the water." [Noah] said, "There is no protector today from the decree of Allah, except for whom He gives mercy." And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned.
1517 11 Hud 44 And it was said, "O earth, swallow your water, and O sky, withhold [your rain]." And the water subsided, and the matter was accomplished, and the ship came to rest on the [mountain of] Judiyy. And it was said, "Away with the wrongdoing people."
1518 11 Hud 45 And Noah called to his Lord and said, "My Lord, indeed my son is of my family; and indeed, Your promise is true; and You are the most just of judges!"
1519 11 Hud 46 He said, "O Noah, indeed he is not of your family; indeed, he is [one whose] work was other than righteous, so ask Me not for that about which you have no knowledge. Indeed, I advise you, lest you be among the ignorant."
1520 11 Hud 47 [Noah] said, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers."
1521 11 Hud 48 It was said, "O Noah, disembark in security from Us and blessings upon you and upon nations [descending] from those with you. But other nations [of them] We will grant enjoyment; then there will touch them from Us a painful punishment."
1522 11 Hud 49 That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient; indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous.
1523 11 Hud 50 And to 'Aad [We sent] their brother Hud. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. You are not but inventors [of falsehood].
1524 11 Hud 51 O my people, I do not ask you for it any reward. My reward is only from the one who created me. Then will you not reason?
1525 11 Hud 52 And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals."
1526 11 Hud 53 They said, "O Hud, you have not brought us clear evidence, and we are not ones to leave our gods on your say-so. Nor are we believers in you.
1527 11 Hud 54 We only say that some of our gods have possessed you with evil." He said, "Indeed, I call Allah to witness, and witness [yourselves] that I am free from whatever you associate with Allah
1528 11 Hud 55 Other than Him. So plot against me all together; then do not give me respite.
1529 11 Hud 56 Indeed, I have relied upon Allah, my Lord and your Lord. There is no creature but that He holds its forelock. Indeed, my Lord is on a path [that is] straight."
1530 11 Hud 57 But if they turn away, [say], "I have already conveyed that with which I was sent to you. My Lord will give succession to a people other than you, and you will not harm Him at all. Indeed my Lord is, over all things, Guardian."
1531 11 Hud 58 And when Our command came, We saved Hud and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us; and We saved them from a harsh punishment.
1532 11 Hud 59 And that was 'Aad, who rejected the signs of their Lord and disobeyed His messengers and followed the order of every obstinate tyrant.
1533 11 Hud 60 And they were [therefore] followed in this world with a curse and [as well] on the Day of Resurrection. Unquestionably, 'Aad denied their Lord; then away with 'Aad, the people of Hud.
1534 11 Hud 61 And to Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. He has produced you from the earth and settled you in it, so ask forgiveness of Him and then repent to Him. Indeed, my Lord is near and responsive."
1535 11 Hud 62 They said, "O Salih, you were among us a man of promise before this. Do you forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? And indeed we are, about that to which you invite us, in disquieting doubt."
1536 11 Hud 63 He said, "O my people, have you considered: if I should be upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has given me mercy from Himself, who would protect me from Allah if I disobeyed Him? So you would not increase me except in loss.
1537 11 Hud 64 And O my people, this is the she-camel of Allah - [she is] to you a sign. So let her feed upon Allah 's earth and do not touch her with harm, or you will be taken by an impending punishment."
1538 11 Hud 65 But they hamstrung her, so he said, "Enjoy yourselves in your homes for three days. That is a promise not to be denied."
1539 11 Hud 66 So when Our command came, We saved Salih and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us, and [saved them] from the disgrace of that day. Indeed, it is your Lord who is the Powerful, the Exalted in Might.
1540 11 Hud 67 And the shriek seized those who had wronged, and they became within their homes [corpses] fallen prone
1541 11 Hud 68 As if they had never prospered therein. Unquestionably, Thamud denied their Lord; then, away with Thamud.
1542 11 Hud 69 And certainly did Our messengers come to Abraham with good tidings; they said, "Peace." He said, "Peace," and did not delay in bringing [them] a roasted calf.
1543 11 Hud 70 But when he saw their hands not reaching for it, he distrusted them and felt from them apprehension. They said, "Fear not. We have been sent to the people of Lot."
1544 11 Hud 71 And his Wife was standing, and she smiled. Then We gave her good tidings of Isaac and after Isaac, Jacob.
1545 11 Hud 72 She said, "Woe to me! Shall I give birth while I am an old woman and this, my husband, is an old man? Indeed, this is an amazing thing!"
1546 11 Hud 73 They said, "Are you amazed at the decree of Allah? May the mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, people of the house. Indeed, He is Praiseworthy and Honorable."
1547 11 Hud 74 And when the fright had left Abraham and the good tidings had reached him, he began to argue with Us concerning the people of Lot.
1548 11 Hud 75 Indeed, Abraham was forbearing, grieving and [frequently] returning [to Allah].
1549 11 Hud 76 [The angels said], "O Abraham, give up this [plea]. Indeed, the command of your Lord has come, and indeed, there will reach them a punishment that cannot be repelled."
1550 11 Hud 77 And when Our messengers, [the angels], came to Lot, he was anguished for them and felt for them great discomfort and said, "This is a trying day."
1551 11 Hud 78 And his people came hastening to him, and before [this] they had been doing evil deeds. He said, "O my people, these are my daughters; they are purer for you. So fear Allah and do not disgrace me concerning my guests. Is there not among you a man of reason?"
1552 11 Hud 79 They said, "You have already known that we have not concerning your daughters any claim, and indeed, you know what we want."
1553 11 Hud 80 He said, "If only I had against you some power or could take refuge in a strong support."
1554 11 Hud 81 The angels said, "O Lot, indeed we are messengers of your Lord; [therefore], they will never reach you. So set out with your family during a portion of the night and let not any among you look back - except your wife; indeed, she will be struck by that which strikes them. Indeed, their appointment is [for] the morning. Is not the morning near?"
1555 11 Hud 82 So when Our command came, We made the highest part [of the city] its lowest and rained upon them stones of layered hard clay, [which were]
1556 11 Hud 83 Marked from your Lord. And Allah 's punishment is not from the wrongdoers [very] far.
1557 11 Hud 84 And to Madyan [We sent] their brother Shu'ayb. He said, "O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. And do not decrease from the measure and the scale. Indeed, I see you in prosperity, but indeed, I fear for you the punishment of an all-encompassing Day.
1558 11 Hud 85 And O my people, give full measure and weight in justice and do not deprive the people of their due and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.
1559 11 Hud 86 What remains [lawful] from Allah is best for you, if you would be believers. But I am not a guardian over you."
1560 11 Hud 87 They said, "O Shu'ayb, does your prayer command you that we should leave what our fathers worship or not do with our wealth what we please? Indeed, you are the forbearing, the discerning!"
1561 11 Hud 88 He said, "O my people, have you considered: if I am upon clear evidence from my Lord and He has provided me with a good provision from Him...? And I do not intend to differ from you in that which I have forbidden you; I only intend reform as much as I am able. And my success is not but through Allah. Upon him I have relied, and to Him I return.
1562 11 Hud 89 And O my people, let not [your] dissension from me cause you to be struck by that similar to what struck the people of Noah or the people of Hud or the people of Salih. And the people of Lot are not from you far away.
1563 11 Hud 90 And ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. Indeed, my Lord is Merciful and Affectionate."
1564 11 Hud 91 They said, "O Shu'ayb, we do not understand much of what you say, and indeed, we consider you among us as weak. And if not for your family, we would have stoned you [to death]; and you are not to us one respected."
1565 11 Hud 92 He said, "O my people, is my family more respected for power by you than Allah? But you put Him behind your backs [in neglect]. Indeed, my Lord is encompassing of what you do.
1566 11 Hud 93 And O my people, work according to your position; indeed, I am working. You are going to know to whom will come a punishment that will disgrace him and who is a liar. So watch; indeed, I am with you a watcher, [awaiting the outcome]."
1567 11 Hud 94 And when Our command came, We saved Shu'ayb and those who believed with him, by mercy from Us. And the shriek seized those who had wronged, and they became within their homes [corpses] fallen prone
1568 11 Hud 95 As if they had never prospered therein. Then, away with Madyan as Thamud was taken away.
1569 11 Hud 96 And We did certainly send Moses with Our signs and a clear authority
1570 11 Hud 97 To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh was not [at all] discerning.
1571 11 Hud 98 He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire; and wretched is the place to which they are led.
1572 11 Hud 99 And they were followed in this [world] with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection. And wretched is the gift which is given.
1573 11 Hud 100 That is from the news of the cities, which We relate to you; of them, some are [still] standing and some are [as] a harvest [mowed down].
1574 11 Hud 101 And We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves. And they were not availed at all by their gods which they invoked other than Allah when there came the command of your Lord. And they did not increase them in other than ruin.
1575 11 Hud 102 And thus is the seizure of your Lord when He seizes the cities while they are committing wrong. Indeed, His seizure is painful and severe.
1576 11 Hud 103 Indeed in that is a sign for those who fear the punishment of the Hereafter. That is a Day for which the people will be collected, and that is a Day [which will be] witnessed.
1577 11 Hud 104 And We do not delay it except for a limited term.
1578 11 Hud 105 The Day it comes no soul will speak except by His permission. And among them will be the wretched and the prosperous.
1579 11 Hud 106 As for those who were [destined to be] wretched, they will be in the Fire. For them therein is [violent] exhaling and inhaling.
1580 11 Hud 107 [They will be] abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what your Lord should will. Indeed, your Lord is an effecter of what He intends.
1581 11 Hud 108 And as for those who were [destined to be] prosperous, they will be in Paradise, abiding therein as long as the heavens and the earth endure, except what your Lord should will - a bestowal uninterrupted.
1582 11 Hud 109 So do not be in doubt, [O Muhammad], as to what these [polytheists] are worshipping. They worship not except as their fathers worshipped before. And indeed, We will give them their share undiminished.
1583 11 Hud 110 And We had certainly given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been judged between them. And indeed they are, concerning the Qur'an, in disquieting doubt.
1584 11 Hud 111 And indeed, each [of the believers and disbelievers] - your Lord will fully compensate them for their deeds. Indeed, He is Acquainted with what they do.
1585 11 Hud 112 So remain on a right course as you have been commanded, [you] and those who have turned back with you [to Allah], and do not transgress. Indeed, He is Seeing of what you do.
1586 11 Hud 113 And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire, and you would not have other than Allah any protectors; then you would not be helped.
1587 11 Hud 114 And establish prayer at the two ends of the day and at the approach of the night. Indeed, good deeds do away with misdeeds. That is a reminder for those who remember.
1588 11 Hud 115 And be patient, for indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.
1589 11 Hud 116 So why were there not among the generations before you those of enduring discrimination forbidding corruption on earth - except a few of those We saved from among them? But those who wronged pursued what luxury they were given therein, and they were criminals.
1590 11 Hud 117 And your Lord would not have destroyed the cities unjustly while their people were reformers.
1591 11 Hud 118 And if your Lord had willed, He could have made mankind one community; but they will not cease to differ.
1592 11 Hud 119 Except whom your Lord has given mercy, and for that He created them. But the word of your Lord is to be fulfilled that, "I will surely fill Hell with jinn and men all together."
1593 11 Hud 120 And each [story] We relate to you from the news of the messengers is that by which We make firm your heart. And there has come to you, in this, the truth and an instruction and a reminder for the believers.
1594 11 Hud 121 And say to those who do not believe, "Work according to your position; indeed, we are working.
1595 11 Hud 122 And wait, indeed, we are waiting."
1596 11 Hud 123 And to Allah belong the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth and to Him will be returned the matter, all of it, so worship Him and rely upon Him. And your Lord is not unaware of that which you do.
1597 12 Joseph 1 Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the clear Book.
1598 12 Joseph 2 Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand.
1599 12 Joseph 3 We relate to you, [O Muhammad], the best of stories in what We have revealed to you of this Qur'an although you were, before it, among the unaware.
1600 12 Joseph 4 [Of these stories mention] when Joseph said to his father, "O my father, indeed I have seen [in a dream] eleven stars and the sun and the moon; I saw them prostrating to me."
1601 12 Joseph 5 He said, "O my son, do not relate your vision to your brothers or they will contrive against you a plan. Indeed Satan, to man, is a manifest enemy.
1602 12 Joseph 6 And thus will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretation of narratives and complete His favor upon you and upon the family of Jacob, as He completed it upon your fathers before, Abraham and Isaac. Indeed, your Lord is Knowing and Wise."
1603 12 Joseph 7 Certainly were there in Joseph and his brothers signs for those who ask,
1604 12 Joseph 8 When they said, "Joseph and his brother are more beloved to our father than we, while we are a clan. Indeed, our father is in clear error.
1605 12 Joseph 9 Kill Joseph or cast him out to [another] land; the countenance of your father will [then] be only for you, and you will be after that a righteous people."
1606 12 Joseph 10 Said a speaker among them, "Do not kill Joseph but throw him into the bottom of the well; some travelers will pick him up - if you would do [something]."
1607 12 Joseph 11 They said, "O our father, why do you not entrust us with Joseph while indeed, we are to him sincere counselors?
1608 12 Joseph 12 Send him with us tomorrow that he may eat well and play. And indeed, we will be his guardians.
1609 12 Joseph 13 [Jacob] said, "Indeed, it saddens me that you should take him, and I fear that a wolf would eat him while you are of him unaware."
1610 12 Joseph 14 They said, "If a wolf should eat him while we are a [strong] clan, indeed, we would then be losers."
1611 12 Joseph 15 So when they took him [out] and agreed to put him into the bottom of the well... But We inspired to him, "You will surely inform them [someday] about this affair of theirs while they do not perceive [your identity]."
1612 12 Joseph 16 And they came to their father at night, weeping.
1613 12 Joseph 17 They said, "O our father, indeed we went racing each other and left Joseph with our possessions, and a wolf ate him. But you would not believe us, even if we were truthful."
1614 12 Joseph 18 And they brought upon his shirt false blood. [Jacob] said, "Rather, your souls have enticed you to something, so patience is most fitting. And Allah is the one sought for help against that which you describe."
1615 12 Joseph 19 And there came a company of travelers; then they sent their water drawer, and he let down his bucket. He said, "Good news! Here is a boy." And they concealed him, [taking him] as merchandise; and Allah was knowing of what they did.
1616 12 Joseph 20 And they sold him for a reduced price - a few dirhams - and they were, concerning him, of those content with little.
1617 12 Joseph 21 And the one from Egypt who bought him said to his wife, "Make his residence comfortable. Perhaps he will benefit us, or we will adopt him as a son." And thus, We established Joseph in the land that We might teach him the interpretation of events. And Allah is predominant over His affair, but most of the people do not know.
1618 12 Joseph 22 And when Joseph reached maturity, We gave him judgment and knowledge. And thus We reward the doers of good.
1619 12 Joseph 23 And she, in whose house he was, sought to seduce him. She closed the doors and said, "Come, you." He said, "[I seek] the refuge of Allah. Indeed, he is my master, who has made good my residence. Indeed, wrongdoers will not succeed."
1620 12 Joseph 24 And she certainly determined [to seduce] him, and he would have inclined to her had he not seen the proof of his Lord. And thus [it was] that We should avert from him evil and immorality. Indeed, he was of Our chosen servants.
1621 12 Joseph 25 And they both raced to the door, and she tore his shirt from the back, and they found her husband at the door. She said, "What is the recompense of one who intended evil for your wife but that he be imprisoned or a painful punishment?"
1622 12 Joseph 26 [Joseph] said, "It was she who sought to seduce me." And a witness from her family testified. "If his shirt is torn from the front, then she has told the truth, and he is of the liars.
1623 12 Joseph 27 But if his shirt is torn from the back, then she has lied, and he is of the truthful."
1624 12 Joseph 28 So when her husband saw his shirt torn from the back, he said, "Indeed, it is of the women's plan. Indeed, your plan is great.
1625 12 Joseph 29 Joseph, ignore this. And, [my wife], ask forgiveness for your sin. Indeed, you were of the sinful."
1626 12 Joseph 30 And women in the city said, "The wife of al-'Azeez is seeking to seduce her slave boy; he has impassioned her with love. Indeed, we see her [to be] in clear error."
1627 12 Joseph 31 So when she heard of their scheming, she sent for them and prepared for them a banquet and gave each one of them a knife and said [to Joseph], "Come out before them." And when they saw him, they greatly admired him and cut their hands and said, "Perfect is Allah! This is not a man; this is none but a noble angel."
1628 12 Joseph 32 She said, "That is the one about whom you blamed me. And I certainly sought to seduce him, but he firmly refused; and if he will not do what I order him, he will surely be imprisoned and will be of those debased."
1629 12 Joseph 33 He said, "My Lord, prison is more to my liking than that to which they invite me. And if You do not avert from me their plan, I might incline toward them and [thus] be of the ignorant."
1630 12 Joseph 34 So his Lord responded to him and averted from him their plan. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
1631 12 Joseph 35 Then it appeared to them after they had seen the signs that al-'Azeez should surely imprison him for a time.
1632 12 Joseph 36 And there entered the prison with him two young men. One of them said, "Indeed, I have seen myself [in a dream] pressing wine." The other said, "Indeed, I have seen myself carrying upon my head [some] bread, from which the birds were eating. Inform us of its interpretation; indeed, we see you to be of those who do good."
1633 12 Joseph 37 He said, "You will not receive food that is provided to you except that I will inform you of its interpretation before it comes to you. That is from what my Lord has taught me. Indeed, I have left the religion of a people who do not believe in Allah, and they, in the Hereafter, are disbelievers.
1634 12 Joseph 38 And I have followed the religion of my fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And it was not for us to associate anything with Allah. That is from the favor of Allah upon us and upon the people, but most of the people are not grateful.
1635 12 Joseph 39 O [my] two companions of prison, are separate lords better or Allah, the One, the Prevailing?
1636 12 Joseph 40 You worship not besides Him except [mere] names you have named them, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. Legislation is not but for Allah. He has commanded that you worship not except Him. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.
1637 12 Joseph 41 O two companions of prison, as for one of you, he will give drink to his master of wine; but as for the other, he will be crucified, and the birds will eat from his head. The matter has been decreed about which you both inquire."
1638 12 Joseph 42 And he said to the one whom he knew would go free, "Mention me before your master." But Satan made him forget the mention [to] his master, and Joseph remained in prison several years.
1639 12 Joseph 43 And [subsequently] the king said, "Indeed, I have seen [in a dream] seven fat cows being eaten by seven [that were] lean, and seven green spikes [of grain] and others [that were] dry. O eminent ones, explain to me my vision, if you should interpret visions."
1640 12 Joseph 44 They said, "[It is but] a mixture of false dreams, and we are not learned in the interpretation of dreams."
1641 12 Joseph 45 But the one who was freed and remembered after a time said, "I will inform you of its interpretation, so send me forth."
1642 12 Joseph 46 [He said], "Joseph, O man of truth, explain to us about seven fat cows eaten by seven [that were] lean, and seven green spikes [of grain] and others [that were] dry - that I may return to the people; perhaps they will know [about you]."
1643 12 Joseph 47 [Joseph] said, "You will plant for seven years consecutively; and what you harvest leave in its spikes, except a little from which you will eat.
1644 12 Joseph 48 Then will come after that seven difficult [years] which will consume what you saved for them, except a little from which you will store.
1645 12 Joseph 49 Then will come after that a year in which the people will be given rain and in which they will press [olives and grapes]."
1646 12 Joseph 50 And the king said, "Bring him to me." But when the messenger came to him, [Joseph] said, "Return to your master and ask him what is the case of the women who cut their hands. Indeed, my Lord is Knowing of their plan."
1647 12 Joseph 51 Said [the king to the women], "What was your condition when you sought to seduce Joseph?" They said, "Perfect is Allah! We know about him no evil." The wife of al-'Azeez said, "Now the truth has become evident. It was I who sought to seduce him, and indeed, he is of the truthful.
1648 12 Joseph 52 That is so al-'Azeez will know that I did not betray him in [his] absence and that Allah does not guide the plan of betrayers.
1649 12 Joseph 53 And I do not acquit myself. Indeed, the soul is a persistent enjoiner of evil, except those upon which my Lord has mercy. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful."
1650 12 Joseph 54 And the king said, "Bring him to me; I will appoint him exclusively for myself." And when he spoke to him, he said, "Indeed, you are today established [in position] and trusted."
1651 12 Joseph 55 [Joseph] said, "Appoint me over the storehouses of the land. Indeed, I will be a knowing guardian."
1652 12 Joseph 56 And thus We established Joseph in the land to settle therein wherever he willed. We touch with Our mercy whom We will, and We do not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good.
1653 12 Joseph 57 And the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believed and were fearing Allah.
1654 12 Joseph 58 And the brothers of Joseph came [seeking food], and they entered upon him; and he recognized them, but he was to them unknown.
1655 12 Joseph 59 And when he had furnished them with their supplies, he said, "Bring me a brother of yours from your father. Do not you see that I give full measure and that I am the best of accommodators?
1656 12 Joseph 60 But if you do not bring him to me, no measure will there be [hereafter] for you from me, nor will you approach me."
1657 12 Joseph 61 They said, "We will attempt to dissuade his father from [keeping] him, and indeed, we will do [it]."
1658 12 Joseph 62 And [Joseph] said to his servants, "Put their merchandise into their saddlebags so they might recognize it when they have gone back to their people that perhaps they will [again] return."
1659 12 Joseph 63 So when they returned to their father, they said, "O our father, [further] measure has been denied to us, so send with us our brother [that] we will be given measure. And indeed, we will be his guardians."
1660 12 Joseph 64 He said, "Should I entrust you with him except [under coercion] as I entrusted you with his brother before? But Allah is the best guardian, and He is the most merciful of the merciful."
1661 12 Joseph 65 And when they opened their baggage, they found their merchandise returned to them. They said, "O our father, what [more] could we desire? This is our merchandise returned to us. And we will obtain supplies for our family and protect our brother and obtain an increase of a camel's load; that is an easy measurement."
1662 12 Joseph 66 [Jacob] said, "Never will I send him with you until you give me a promise by Allah that you will bring him [back] to me, unless you should be surrounded by enemies." And when they had given their promise, he said, "Allah, over what we say, is Witness."
1663 12 Joseph 67 And he said, "O my sons, do not enter from one gate but enter from different gates; and I cannot avail you against [the decree of] Allah at all. The decision is only for Allah; upon Him I have relied, and upon Him let those who would rely [indeed] rely."
1664 12 Joseph 68 And when they entered from where their father had ordered them, it did not avail them against Allah at all except [it was] a need within the soul of Jacob, which he satisfied. And indeed, he was a possessor of knowledge because of what We had taught him, but most of the people do not know.
1665 12 Joseph 69 And when they entered upon Joseph, he took his brother to himself; he said, "Indeed, I am your brother, so do not despair over what they used to do [to me]."
1666 12 Joseph 70 So when he had furnished them with their supplies, he put the [gold measuring] bowl into the bag of his brother. Then an announcer called out, "O caravan, indeed you are thieves."
1667 12 Joseph 71 They said while approaching them, "What is it you are missing?"
1668 12 Joseph 72 They said, "We are missing the measure of the king. And for he who produces it is [the reward of] a camel's load, and I am responsible for it."
1669 12 Joseph 73 They said, "By Allah, you have certainly known that we did not come to cause corruption in the land, and we have not been thieves."
1670 12 Joseph 74 The accusers said, "Then what would be its recompense if you should be liars?"
1671 12 Joseph 75 [The brothers] said, "Its recompense is that he in whose bag it is found - he [himself] will be its recompense. Thus do we recompense the wrongdoers."
1672 12 Joseph 76 So he began [the search] with their bags before the bag of his brother; then he extracted it from the bag of his brother. Thus did We plan for Joseph. He could not have taken his brother within the religion of the king except that Allah willed. We raise in degrees whom We will, but over every possessor of knowledge is one [more] knowing.
1673 12 Joseph 77 They said, "If he steals - a brother of his has stolen before." But Joseph kept it within himself and did not reveal it to them. He said, "You are worse in position, and Allah is most knowing of what you describe."
1674 12 Joseph 78 They said, "O 'Azeez, indeed he has a father [who is] an old man, so take one of us in place of him. Indeed, we see you as a doer of good."
1675 12 Joseph 79 He said, "[I seek] the refuge of Allah [to prevent] that we take except him with whom we found our possession. Indeed, we would then be unjust."
1676 12 Joseph 80 So when they had despaired of him, they secluded themselves in private consultation. The eldest of them said, "Do you not know that your father has taken upon you an oath by Allah and [that] before you failed in [your duty to] Joseph? So I will never leave [this] land until my father permits me or Allah decides for me, and He is the best of judges.
1677 12 Joseph 81 Return to your father and say, "O our father, indeed your son has stolen, and we did not testify except to what we knew. And we were not witnesses of the unseen,
1678 12 Joseph 82 And ask the city in which we were and the caravan in which we came - and indeed, we are truthful,"
1679 12 Joseph 83 [Jacob] said, "Rather, your souls have enticed you to something, so patience is most fitting. Perhaps Allah will bring them to me all together. Indeed it is He who is the Knowing, the Wise."
1680 12 Joseph 84 And he turned away from them and said, "Oh, my sorrow over Joseph," and his eyes became white from grief, for he was [of that] a suppressor.
1681 12 Joseph 85 They said, "By Allah, you will not cease remembering Joseph until you become fatally ill or become of those who perish."
1682 12 Joseph 86 He said, "I only complain of my suffering and my grief to Allah, and I know from Allah that which you do not know.
1683 12 Joseph 87 O my sons, go and find out about Joseph and his brother and despair not of relief from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs of relief from Allah except the disbelieving people."
1684 12 Joseph 88 So when they entered upon Joseph, they said, "O 'Azeez, adversity has touched us and our family, and we have come with goods poor in quality, but give us full measure and be charitable to us. Indeed, Allah rewards the charitable."
1685 12 Joseph 89 He said, "Do you know what you did with Joseph and his brother when you were ignorant?"
1686 12 Joseph 90 They said, "Are you indeed Joseph?" He said "I am Joseph, and this is my brother. Allah has certainly favored us. Indeed, he who fears Allah and is patient, then indeed, Allah does not allow to be lost the reward of those who do good."
1687 12 Joseph 91 They said, "By Allah, certainly has Allah preferred you over us, and indeed, we have been sinners."
1688 12 Joseph 92 He said, "No blame will there be upon you today. Allah will forgive you; and He is the most merciful of the merciful."
1689 12 Joseph 93 Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will become seeing. And bring me your family, all together."
1690 12 Joseph 94 And when the caravan departed [from Egypt], their father said, "Indeed, I find the smell of Joseph [and would say that he was alive] if you did not think me weakened in mind."
1691 12 Joseph 95 They said, "By Allah, indeed you are in your [same] old error."
1692 12 Joseph 96 And when the bearer of good tidings arrived, he cast it over his face, and he returned [once again] seeing. He said, "Did I not tell you that I know from Allah that which you do not know?"
1693 12 Joseph 97 They said, "O our father, ask for us forgiveness of our sins; indeed, we have been sinners."
1694 12 Joseph 98 He said, "I will ask forgiveness for you from my Lord. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."
1695 12 Joseph 99 And when they entered upon Joseph, he took his parents to himself and said, "Enter Egypt, Allah willing, safe [and secure]."
1696 12 Joseph 100 And he raised his parents upon the throne, and they bowed to him in prostration. And he said, "O my father, this is the explanation of my vision of before. My Lord has made it reality. And He was certainly good to me when He took me out of prison and brought you [here] from bedouin life after Satan had induced [estrangement] between me and my brothers. Indeed, my Lord is Subtle in what He wills. Indeed, it is He who is the Knowing, the Wise.
1697 12 Joseph 101 My Lord, You have given me [something] of sovereignty and taught me of the interpretation of dreams. Creator of the heavens and earth, You are my protector in this world and in the Hereafter. Cause me to die a Muslim and join me with the righteous."
1698 12 Joseph 102 That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal, [O Muhammad], to you. And you were not with them when they put together their plan while they conspired.
1699 12 Joseph 103 And most of the people, although you strive [for it], are not believers.
1700 12 Joseph 104 And you do not ask of them for it any payment. It is not except a reminder to the worlds.
1701 12 Joseph 105 And how many a sign within the heavens and earth do they pass over while they, therefrom, are turning away.
1702 12 Joseph 106 And most of them believe not in Allah except while they associate others with Him.
1703 12 Joseph 107 Then do they feel secure that there will not come to them an overwhelming [aspect] of the punishment of Allah or that the Hour will not come upon them suddenly while they do not perceive?
1704 12 Joseph 108 Say, "This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah; and I am not of those who associate others with Him."
1705 12 Joseph 109 And We sent not before you [as messengers] except men to whom We revealed from among the people of cities. So have they not traveled through the earth and observed how was the end of those before them? And the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah; then will you not reason?
1706 12 Joseph 110 [They continued] until, when the messengers despaired and were certain that they had been denied, there came to them Our victory, and whoever We willed was saved. And Our punishment cannot be repelled from the people who are criminals.
1707 12 Joseph 111 There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur'an a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
1708 13 The Thunder 1 Alif, Lam, Meem, Ra. These are the verses of the Book; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, but most of the people do not believe.
1709 13 The Thunder 2 It is Allah who erected the heavens without pillars that you [can] see; then He established Himself above the Throne and made subject the sun and the moon, each running [its course] for a specified term. He arranges [each] matter; He details the signs that you may, of the meeting with your Lord, be certain.
1710 13 The Thunder 3 And it is He who spread the earth and placed therein firmly set mountains and rivers; and from all of the fruits He made therein two mates; He causes the night to cover the day. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.
1711 13 The Thunder 4 And within the land are neighboring plots and gardens of grapevines and crops and palm trees, [growing] several from a root or otherwise, watered with one water; but We make some of them exceed others in [quality of] fruit. Indeed in that are signs for a people who reason.
1712 13 The Thunder 5 And if you are astonished, [O Muhammad] - then astonishing is their saying, "When we are dust, will we indeed be [brought] into a new creation?" Those are the ones who have disbelieved in their Lord, and those will have shackles upon their necks, and those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally.
1713 13 The Thunder 6 They impatiently urge you to bring about evil before good, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments [to what they demand]. And indeed, your Lord is full of forgiveness for the people despite their wrongdoing, and indeed, your Lord is severe in penalty.
1714 13 The Thunder 7 And those who disbelieved say, "Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?" You are only a warner, and for every people is a guide.
1715 13 The Thunder 8 Allah knows what every female carries and what the wombs lose [prematurely] or exceed. And everything with Him is by due measure.
1716 13 The Thunder 9 [He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted.
1717 13 The Thunder 10 It is the same [to Him] concerning you whether one conceals [his] speech or one publicizes it and whether one is hidden by night or conspicuous [among others] by day.
1718 13 The Thunder 11 For each one are successive [angels] before and behind him who protect him by the decree of Allah. Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. And when Allah intends for a people ill, there is no repelling it. And there is not for them besides Him any patron.
1719 13 The Thunder 12 It is He who shows you lightening, [causing] fear and aspiration, and generates the heavy clouds.
1720 13 The Thunder 13 And the thunder exalts [Allah] with praise of Him - and the angels [as well] from fear of Him - and He sends thunderbolts and strikes therewith whom He wills while they dispute about Allah; and He is severe in assault.
1721 13 The Thunder 14 To Him [alone] is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water [from afar, calling it] to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it [thus]. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error [i.e. futility].
1722 13 The Thunder 15 And to Allah prostrates whoever is within the heavens and the earth, willingly or by compulsion, and their shadows [as well] in the mornings and the afternoons.
1723 13 The Thunder 16 Say, "Who is Lord of the heavens and earth?" Say, "Allah." Say, "Have you then taken besides Him allies not possessing [even] for themselves any benefit or any harm?" Say, "Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Or is darkness equivalent to light? Or have they attributed to Allah partners who created like His creation so that the creation [of each] seemed similar to them?" Say, "Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Prevailing."
1724 13 The Thunder 17 He sends down from the sky, rain, and valleys flow according to their capacity, and the torrent carries a rising foam. And from that [ore] which they heat in the fire, desiring adornments and utensils, is a foam like it. Thus Allah presents [the example of] truth and falsehood. As for the foam, it vanishes, [being] cast off; but as for that which benefits the people, it remains on the earth. Thus does Allah present examples.
1725 13 The Thunder 18 For those who have responded to their Lord is the best [reward], but those who did not respond to Him - if they had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby. Those will have the worst account, and their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the resting place.
1726 13 The Thunder 19 Then is he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding -
1727 13 The Thunder 20 Those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the contract,
1728 13 The Thunder 21 And those who join that which Allah has ordered to be joined and fear their Lord and are afraid of the evil of [their] account,
1729 13 The Thunder 22 And those who are patient, seeking the countenance of their Lord, and establish prayer and spend from what We have provided for them secretly and publicly and prevent evil with good - those will have the good consequence of [this] home -
1730 13 The Thunder 23 Gardens of perpetual residence; they will enter them with whoever were righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their descendants. And the angels will enter upon them from every gate, [saying],
1731 13 The Thunder 24 "Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home."
1732 13 The Thunder 25 But those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting it and sever that which Allah has ordered to be joined and spread corruption on earth - for them is the curse, and they will have the worst home.
1733 13 The Thunder 26 Allah extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]. And they rejoice in the worldly life, while the worldly life is not, compared to the Hereafter, except [brief] enjoyment.
1734 13 The Thunder 27 And those who disbelieved say, "Why has a sign not been sent down to him from his Lord?" Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, Allah leaves astray whom He wills and guides to Himself whoever turns back [to Him] -
1735 13 The Thunder 28 Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah. Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured."
1736 13 The Thunder 29 Those who have believed and done righteous deeds - a good state is theirs and a good return.
1737 13 The Thunder 30 Thus have We sent you to a community before which [other] communities have passed on so you might recite to them that which We revealed to you, while they disbelieve in the Most Merciful. Say, "He is my Lord; there is no deity except Him. Upon Him I rely, and to Him is my return."
1738 13 The Thunder 31 And if there was any qur'an by which the mountains would be removed or the earth would be broken apart or the dead would be made to speak, [it would be this Qur'an], but to Allah belongs the affair entirely. Then have those who believed not accepted that had Allah willed, He would have guided the people, all of them? And those who disbelieve do not cease to be struck, for what they have done, by calamity - or it will descend near their home - until there comes the promise of Allah. Indeed, Allah does not fail in [His] promise.
1739 13 The Thunder 32 And already were [other] messengers ridiculed before you, and I extended the time of those who disbelieved; then I seized them, and how [terrible] was My penalty.
1740 13 The Thunder 33 Then is He who is a maintainer of every soul, [knowing] what it has earned, [like any other]? But to Allah they have attributed partners. Say, "Name them. Or do you inform Him of that which He knows not upon the earth or of what is apparent of speech?" Rather, their [own] plan has been made attractive to those who disbelieve, and they have been averted from the way. And whomever Allah leaves astray - there will be for him no guide.
1741 13 The Thunder 34 For them will be punishment in the life of [this] world, and the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe. And they will not have from Allah any protector.
1742 13 The Thunder 35 The example of Paradise, which the righteous have been promised, is [that] beneath it rivers flow. Its fruit is lasting, and its shade. That is the consequence for the righteous, and the consequence for the disbelievers is the Fire.
1743 13 The Thunder 36 And [the believers among] those to whom We have given the [previous] Scripture rejoice at what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], but among the [opposing] factions are those who deny part of it. Say, "I have only been commanded to worship Allah and not associate [anything] with Him. To Him I invite, and to Him is my return."
1744 13 The Thunder 37 And thus We have revealed it as an Arabic legislation. And if you should follow their inclinations after what has come to you of knowledge, you would not have against Allah any ally or any protector.
1745 13 The Thunder 38 And We have already sent messengers before you and assigned to them wives and descendants. And it was not for a messenger to come with a sign except by permission of Allah. For every term is a decree.
1746 13 The Thunder 39 Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with Him is the Mother of the Book.
1747 13 The Thunder 40 And whether We show you part of what We promise them or take you in death, upon you is only the [duty of] notification, and upon Us is the account.
1748 13 The Thunder 41 Have they not seen that We set upon the land, reducing it from its borders? And Allah decides; there is no adjuster of His decision. And He is swift in account.
1749 13 The Thunder 42 And those before them had plotted, but to Allah belongs the plan entirely. He knows what every soul earns, and the disbelievers will know for whom is the final home.
1750 13 The Thunder 43 And those who have disbelieved say, "You are not a messenger." Say, [O Muhammad], "Sufficient is Allah as Witness between me and you, and [the witness of] whoever has knowledge of the Scripture."
1751 14 Abraham 1 Alif, Lam, Ra. [This is] a Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], that you might bring mankind out of darknesses into the light by permission of their Lord - to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy -
1752 14 Abraham 2 Allah, to whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And woe to the disbelievers from a severe punishment
1753 14 Abraham 3 The ones who prefer the worldly life over the Hereafter and avert [people] from the way of Allah, seeking to make it (seem) deviant. Those are in extreme error.
1754 14 Abraham 4 And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people to state clearly for them, and Allah sends astray [thereby] whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
1755 14 Abraham 5 And We certainly sent Moses with Our signs, [saying], "Bring out your people from darknesses into the light and remind them of the days of Allah." Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.
1756 14 Abraham 6 And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, "Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
1757 14 Abraham 7 And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, 'If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.' "
1758 14 Abraham 8 And Moses said, "If you should disbelieve, you and whoever is on the earth entirely - indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy."
1759 14 Abraham 9 Has there not reached you the news of those before you - the people of Noah and 'Aad and Thamud and those after them? No one knows them but Allah. Their messengers brought them clear proofs, but they returned their hands to their mouths and said, "Indeed, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent, and indeed we are, about that to which you invite us, in disquieting doubt."
1760 14 Abraham 10 Their messengers said, "Can there be doubt about Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth? He invites you that He may forgive you of your sins, and He delays your death for a specified term." They said, "You are not but men like us who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority."
1761 14 Abraham 11 Their messengers said to them, "We are only men like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely.
1762 14 Abraham 12 And why should we not rely upon Allah while He has guided us to our [good] ways. And we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us. And upon Allah let those who would rely [indeed] rely."
1763 14 Abraham 13 And those who disbelieved said to their messengers, "We will surely drive you out of our land, or you must return to our religion." So their Lord inspired to them, "We will surely destroy the wrongdoers.
1764 14 Abraham 14 And We will surely cause you to dwell in the land after them. That is for he who fears My position and fears My threat."
1765 14 Abraham 15 And they requested victory from Allah, and disappointed, [therefore], was every obstinate tyrant.
1766 14 Abraham 16 Before him is Hell, and he will be given a drink of purulent water.
1767 14 Abraham 17 He will gulp it but will hardly [be able to] swallow it. And death will come to him from everywhere, but he is not to die. And before him is a massive punishment.
1768 14 Abraham 18 The example of those who disbelieve in their Lord is [that] their deeds are like ashes which the wind blows forcefully on a stormy day; they are unable [to keep] from what they earned a [single] thing. That is what is extreme error.
1769 14 Abraham 19 Have you not seen that Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth? If He wills, He can do away with you and produce a new creation.
1770 14 Abraham 20 And that is not difficult for Allah.
1771 14 Abraham 21 And they will come out [for judgement] before Allah all together, and the weak will say to those who were arrogant, "Indeed, we were your followers, so can you avail us anything against the punishment of Allah?" They will say, "If Allah had guided us, we would have guided you. It is all the same for us whether we show intolerance or are patient: there is for us no place of escape."
1772 14 Abraham 22 And Satan will say when the matter has been concluded, "Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me; but blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. Indeed, I deny your association of me [with Allah] before. Indeed, for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment."
1773 14 Abraham 23 And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, "Peace!"
1774 14 Abraham 24 Have you not considered how Allah presents an example, [making] a good word like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches [high] in the sky?
1775 14 Abraham 25 It produces its fruit all the time, by permission of its Lord. And Allah presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded.
1776 14 Abraham 26 And the example of a bad word is like a bad tree, uprooted from the surface of the earth, not having any stability.
1777 14 Abraham 27 Allah keeps firm those who believe, with the firm word, in worldly life and in the Hereafter. And Allah sends astray the wrongdoers. And Allah does what He wills.
1778 14 Abraham 28 Have you not considered those who exchanged the favor of Allah for disbelief and settled their people [in] the home of ruin?
1779 14 Abraham 29 [It is] Hell, which they will [enter to] burn, and wretched is the settlement.
1780 14 Abraham 30 And they have attributed to Allah equals to mislead [people] from His way. Say, "Enjoy yourselves, for indeed, your destination is the Fire."
1781 14 Abraham 31 [O Muhammad], tell My servants who have believed to establish prayer and spend from what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, before a Day comes in which there will be no exchange, nor any friendships.
1782 14 Abraham 32 It is Allah who created the heavens and the earth and sent down rain from the sky and produced thereby some fruits as provision for you and subjected for you the ships to sail through the sea by His command and subjected for you the rivers.
1783 14 Abraham 33 And He subjected for you the sun and the moon, continuous [in orbit], and subjected for you the night and the day.
1784 14 Abraham 34 And He gave you from all you asked of Him. And if you should count the favor of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, mankind is [generally] most unjust and ungrateful.
1785 14 Abraham 35 And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham said, "My Lord, make this city [Makkah] secure and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols.
1786 14 Abraham 36 My Lord, indeed they have led astray many among the people. So whoever follows me - then he is of me; and whoever disobeys me - indeed, You are [yet] Forgiving and Merciful.
1787 14 Abraham 37 Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated valley near Your sacred House, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people incline toward them and provide for them from the fruits that they might be grateful.
1788 14 Abraham 38 Our Lord, indeed You know what we conceal and what we declare, and nothing is hidden from Allah on the earth or in the heaven.
1789 14 Abraham 39 Praise to Allah, who has granted to me in old age Ishmael and Isaac. Indeed, my Lord is the Hearer of supplication.
1790 14 Abraham 40 My Lord, make me an establisher of prayer, and [many] from my descendants. Our Lord, and accept my supplication.
1791 14 Abraham 41 Our Lord, forgive me and my parents and the believers the Day the account is established."
1792 14 Abraham 42 And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror].
1793 14 Abraham 43 Racing ahead, their heads raised up, their glance does not come back to them, and their hearts are void.
1794 14 Abraham 44 And, [O Muhammad], warn the people of a Day when the punishment will come to them and those who did wrong will say, "Our Lord, delay us for a short term; we will answer Your call and follow the messengers." [But it will be said], "Had you not sworn, before, that for you there would be no cessation?
1795 14 Abraham 45 And you lived among the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it had become clear to you how We dealt with them. And We presented for you [many] examples."
1796 14 Abraham 46 And they had planned their plan, but with Allah is [recorded] their plan, even if their plan had been [sufficient] to do away with the mountains.
1797 14 Abraham 47 So never think that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution.
1798 14 Abraham 48 [It will be] on the Day the earth will be replaced by another earth, and the heavens [as well], and all creatures will come out before Allah, the One, the Prevailing.
1799 14 Abraham 49 And you will see the criminals that Day bound together in shackles,
1800 14 Abraham 50 Their garments of liquid pitch and their faces covered by the Fire.
1801 14 Abraham 51 So that Allah will recompense every soul for what it earned. Indeed, Allah is swift in account.
1802 14 Abraham 52 This [Qur'an] is notification for the people that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is but one God and that those of understanding will be reminded.
1803 15 The Rock 1 Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the Book and a clear Qur'an.
1804 15 The Rock 2 Perhaps those who disbelieve will wish that they had been Muslims.
1805 15 The Rock 3 Let them eat and enjoy themselves and be diverted by [false] hope, for they are going to know.
1806 15 The Rock 4 And We did not destroy any city but that for it was a known decree.
1807 15 The Rock 5 No nation will precede its term, nor will they remain thereafter.
1808 15 The Rock 6 And they say, "O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad.
1809 15 The Rock 7 Why do you not bring us the angels, if you should be among the truthful?"
1810 15 The Rock 8 We do not send down the angels except with truth; and the disbelievers would not then be reprieved.
1811 15 The Rock 9 Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian.
1812 15 The Rock 10 And We had certainly sent [messengers] before you, [O Muhammad], among the sects of the former peoples.
1813 15 The Rock 11 And no messenger would come to them except that they ridiculed him.
1814 15 The Rock 12 Thus do We insert denial into the hearts of the criminals.
1815 15 The Rock 13 They will not believe in it, while there has already occurred the precedent of the former peoples.
1816 15 The Rock 14 And [even] if We opened to them a gate from the heaven and they continued therein to ascend,
1817 15 The Rock 15 They would say, "Our eyes have only been dazzled. Rather, we are a people affected by magic."
1818 15 The Rock 16 And We have placed within the heaven great stars and have beautified it for the observers.
1819 15 The Rock 17 And We have protected it from every devil expelled [from the mercy of Allah]
1820 15 The Rock 18 Except one who steals a hearing and is pursued by a clear burning flame.
1821 15 The Rock 19 And the earth - We have spread it and cast therein firmly set mountains and caused to grow therein [something] of every well-balanced thing.
1822 15 The Rock 20 And We have made for you therein means of living and [for] those for whom you are not providers.
1823 15 The Rock 21 And there is not a thing but that with Us are its depositories, and We do not send it down except according to a known measure.
1824 15 The Rock 22 And We have sent the fertilizing winds and sent down water from the sky and given you drink from it. And you are not its retainers.
1825 15 The Rock 23 And indeed, it is We who give life and cause death, and We are the Inheritor.
1826 15 The Rock 24 And We have already known the preceding [generations] among you, and We have already known the later [ones to come].
1827 15 The Rock 25 And indeed, your Lord will gather them; indeed, He is Wise and Knowing.
1828 15 The Rock 26 And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered black mud.
1829 15 The Rock 27 And the jinn We created before from scorching fire.
1830 15 The Rock 28 And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "I will create a human being out of clay from an altered black mud.
1831 15 The Rock 29 And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration."
1832 15 The Rock 30 So the angels prostrated - all of them entirely,
1833 15 The Rock 31 Except Iblees, he refused to be with those who prostrated.
1834 15 The Rock 32 [Allah] said, O Iblees, what is [the matter] with you that you are not with those who prostrate?"
1835 15 The Rock 33 He said, "Never would I prostrate to a human whom You created out of clay from an altered black mud."
1836 15 The Rock 34 [Allah] said, "Then get out of it, for indeed, you are expelled.
1837 15 The Rock 35 And indeed, upon you is the curse until the Day of Recompense."
1838 15 The Rock 36 He said, "My Lord, then reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected."
1839 15 The Rock 37 [Allah] said, "So indeed, you are of those reprieved
1840 15 The Rock 38 Until the Day of the time well-known."
1841 15 The Rock 39 [Iblees] said, "My Lord, because You have put me in error, I will surely make [disobedience] attractive to them on earth, and I will mislead them all
1842 15 The Rock 40 Except, among them, Your chosen servants."
1843 15 The Rock 41 [Allah] said, "This is a path [of return] to Me [that is] straight.
1844 15 The Rock 42 Indeed, My servants - no authority will you have over them, except those who follow you of the deviators.
1845 15 The Rock 43 And indeed, Hell is the promised place for them all.
1846 15 The Rock 44 It has seven gates; for every gate is of them a portion designated."
1847 15 The Rock 45 Indeed, the righteous will be within gardens and springs.
1848 15 The Rock 46 [Having been told], "Enter it in peace, safe [and secure]."
1849 15 The Rock 47 And We will remove whatever is in their breasts of resentment, [so they will be] brothers, on thrones facing each other.
1850 15 The Rock 48 No fatigue will touch them therein, nor from it will they [ever] be removed.
1851 15 The Rock 49 [O Muhammad], inform My servants that it is I who am the Forgiving, the Merciful.
1852 15 The Rock 50 And that it is My punishment which is the painful punishment.
1853 15 The Rock 51 And inform them about the guests of Abraham,
1854 15 The Rock 52 When they entered upon him and said, "Peace." [Abraham] said, "Indeed, we are fearful of you."
1855 15 The Rock 53 [The angels] said, "Fear not. Indeed, we give you good tidings of a learned boy."
1856 15 The Rock 54 He said, "Have you given me good tidings although old age has come upon me? Then of what [wonder] do you inform?"
1857 15 The Rock 55 They said, "We have given you good tidings in truth, so do not be of the despairing."
1858 15 The Rock 56 He said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?"
1859 15 The Rock 57 [Abraham] said, "Then what is your business [here], O messengers?"
1860 15 The Rock 58 They said, "Indeed, we have been sent to a people of criminals,
1861 15 The Rock 59 Except the family of Lot; indeed, we will save them all
1862 15 The Rock 60 Except his wife." Allah decreed that she is of those who remain behind.
1863 15 The Rock 61 And when the messengers came to the family of Lot,
1864 15 The Rock 62 He said, "Indeed, you are people unknown."
1865 15 The Rock 63 They said, "But we have come to you with that about which they were disputing,
1866 15 The Rock 64 And we have come to you with truth, and indeed, we are truthful.
1867 15 The Rock 65 So set out with your family during a portion of the night and follow behind them and let not anyone among you look back and continue on to where you are commanded."
1868 15 The Rock 66 And We conveyed to him [the decree] of that matter: that those [sinners] would be eliminated by early morning.
1869 15 The Rock 67 And the people of the city came rejoicing.
1870 15 The Rock 68 [Lot] said, "Indeed, these are my guests, so do not shame me.
1871 15 The Rock 69 And fear Allah and do not disgrace me."
1872 15 The Rock 70 They said, "Have we not forbidden you from [protecting] people?"
1873 15 The Rock 71 [Lot] said, "These are my daughters - if you would be doers [of lawful marriage]."
1874 15 The Rock 72 By your life, [O Muhammad], indeed they were, in their intoxication, wandering blindly.
1875 15 The Rock 73 So the shriek seized them at sunrise.
1876 15 The Rock 74 And We made the highest part [of the city] its lowest and rained upon them stones of hard clay.
1877 15 The Rock 75 Indeed in that are signs for those who discern.
1878 15 The Rock 76 And indeed, those cities are [situated] on an established road.
1879 15 The Rock 77 Indeed in that is a sign for the believers.
1880 15 The Rock 78 And the companions of the thicket were [also] wrongdoers.
1881 15 The Rock 79 So We took retribution from them, and indeed, both [cities] are on a clear highway.
1882 15 The Rock 80 And certainly did the companions of Thamud deny the messengers.
1883 15 The Rock 81 And We gave them Our signs, but from them they were turning away.
1884 15 The Rock 82 And they used to carve from the mountains, houses, feeling secure.
1885 15 The Rock 83 But the shriek seized them at early morning.
1886 15 The Rock 84 So nothing availed them [from] what they used to earn.
1887 15 The Rock 85 And We have not created the heavens and earth and that between them except in truth. And indeed, the Hour is coming; so forgive with gracious forgiveness.
1888 15 The Rock 86 Indeed, your Lord - He is the Knowing Creator.
1889 15 The Rock 87 And We have certainly given you, [O Muhammad], seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Qur'an.
1890 15 The Rock 88 Do not extend your eyes toward that by which We have given enjoyment to [certain] categories of the disbelievers, and do not grieve over them. And lower your wing to the believers
1891 15 The Rock 89 And say, "Indeed, I am the clear warner" -
1892 15 The Rock 90 Just as We had revealed [scriptures] to the separators
1893 15 The Rock 91 Who have made the Qur'an into portions.
1894 15 The Rock 92 So by your Lord, We will surely question them all
1895 15 The Rock 93 About what they used to do.
1896 15 The Rock 94 Then declare what you are commanded and turn away from the polytheists.
1897 15 The Rock 95 Indeed, We are sufficient for you against the mockers
1898 15 The Rock 96 Who make [equal] with Allah another deity. But they are going to know.
1899 15 The Rock 97 And We already know that your breast is constrained by what they say.
1900 15 The Rock 98 So exalt [Allah] with praise of your Lord and be of those who prostrate [to Him].
1901 15 The Rock 99 And worship your Lord until there comes to you the certainty (death).
1902 16 The Bee 1 The command of Allah is coming, so be not impatient for it. Exalted is He and high above what they associate with Him.
1903 16 The Bee 2 He sends down the angels, with the inspiration of His command, upon whom He wills of His servants, [telling them], "Warn that there is no deity except Me; so fear Me."
1904 16 The Bee 3 He created the heavens and earth in truth. High is He above what they associate with Him.
1905 16 The Bee 4 He created man from a sperm-drop; then at once, he is a clear adversary.
1906 16 The Bee 5 And the grazing livestock He has created for you; in them is warmth and [numerous] benefits, and from them you eat.
1907 16 The Bee 6 And for you in them is [the enjoyment of] beauty when you bring them in [for the evening] and when you send them out [to pasture].
1908 16 The Bee 7 And they carry your loads to a land you could not have reached except with difficulty to yourselves. Indeed, your Lord is Kind and Merciful.
1909 16 The Bee 8 And [He created] the horses, mules and donkeys for you to ride and [as] adornment. And He creates that which you do not know.
1910 16 The Bee 9 And upon Allah is the direction of the [right] way, and among the various paths are those deviating. And if He willed, He could have guided you all.
1911 16 The Bee 10 It is He who sends down rain from the sky; from it is drink and from it is foliage in which you pasture [animals].
1912 16 The Bee 11 He causes to grow for you thereby the crops, olives, palm trees, grapevines, and from all the fruits. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought.
1913 16 The Bee 12 And He has subjected for you the night and day and the sun and moon, and the stars are subjected by His command. Indeed in that are signs for a people who reason.
1914 16 The Bee 13 And [He has subjected] whatever He multiplied for you on the earth of varying colors. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who remember.
1915 16 The Bee 14 And it is He who subjected the sea for you to eat from it tender meat and to extract from it ornaments which you wear. And you see the ships plowing through it, and [He subjected it] that you may seek of His bounty; and perhaps you will be grateful.
1916 16 The Bee 15 And He has cast into the earth firmly set mountains, lest it shift with you, and [made] rivers and roads, that you may be guided,
1917 16 The Bee 16 And landmarks. And by the stars they are [also] guided.
1918 16 The Bee 17 Then is He who creates like one who does not create? So will you not be reminded?
1919 16 The Bee 18 And if you should count the favors of Allah, you could not enumerate them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
1920 16 The Bee 19 And Allah knows what you conceal and what you declare.
1921 16 The Bee 20 And those they invoke other than Allah create nothing, and they [themselves] are created.
1922 16 The Bee 21 They are, [in fact], dead, not alive, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected.
1923 16 The Bee 22 Your god is one God. But those who do not believe in the Hereafter - their hearts are disapproving, and they are arrogant.
1924 16 The Bee 23 Assuredly, Allah knows what they conceal and what they declare. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant.
1925 16 The Bee 24 And when it is said to them, "What has your Lord sent down?" They say, "Legends of the former peoples,"
1926 16 The Bee 25 That they may bear their own burdens in full on the Day of Resurrection and some of the burdens of those whom they misguide without knowledge. Unquestionably, evil is that which they bear.
1927 16 The Bee 26 Those before them had already plotted, but Allah came at their building from the foundations, so the roof fell upon them from above them, and the punishment came to them from where they did not perceive.
1928 16 The Bee 27 Then on the Day of Resurrection He will disgrace them and say, "Where are My 'partners' for whom you used to oppose [the believers]?" Those who were given knowledge will say, "Indeed disgrace, this Day, and evil are upon the disbelievers" -
1929 16 The Bee 28 The ones whom the angels take in death [while] wronging themselves, and [who] then offer submission, [saying], "We were not doing any evil." But, yes! Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what you used to do.
1930 16 The Bee 29 So enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein, and how wretched is the residence of the arrogant.
1931 16 The Bee 30 And it will be said to those who feared Allah, "What did your Lord send down?" They will say, "[That which is] good." For those who do good in this world is good; and the home of the Hereafter is better. And how excellent is the home of the righteous -
1932 16 The Bee 31 Gardens of perpetual residence, which they will enter, beneath which rivers flow. They will have therein whatever they wish. Thus does Allah reward the righteous -
1933 16 The Bee 32 The ones whom the angels take in death, [being] good and pure; [the angels] will say, "Peace be upon you. Enter Paradise for what you used to do."
1934 16 The Bee 33 Do the disbelievers await [anything] except that the angels should come to them or there comes the command of your Lord? Thus did those do before them. And Allah wronged them not, but they had been wronging themselves.
1935 16 The Bee 34 So they were struck by the evil consequences of what they did and were enveloped by what they used to ridicule.
1936 16 The Bee 35 And those who associate others with Allah say, "If Allah had willed, we would not have worshipped anything other than Him, neither we nor our fathers, nor would we have forbidden anything through other than Him." Thus did those do before them. So is there upon the messengers except [the duty of] clear notification?
1937 16 The Bee 36 And We certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying], "Worship Allah and avoid Taghut." And among them were those whom Allah guided, and among them were those upon whom error was [deservedly] decreed. So proceed through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers.
1938 16 The Bee 37 [Even] if you should strive for their guidance, [O Muhammad], indeed, Allah does not guide those He sends astray, and they will have no helpers.
1939 16 The Bee 38 And they swear by Allah their strongest oaths [that] Allah will not resurrect one who dies. But yes - [it is] a true promise [binding] upon Him, but most of the people do not know.
1940 16 The Bee 39 [It is] so He will make clear to them [the truth of] that wherein they differ and so those who have disbelieved may know that they were liars.
1941 16 The Bee 40 Indeed, Our word to a thing when We intend it is but that We say to it, "Be," and it is.
1942 16 The Bee 41 And those who emigrated for [the cause of] Allah after they had been wronged - We will surely settle them in this world in a good place; but the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if only they could know.
1943 16 The Bee 42 [They are] those who endured patiently and upon their Lord relied.
1944 16 The Bee 43 And We sent not before you except men to whom We revealed [Our message]. So ask the people of the message if you do not know.
1945 16 The Bee 44 [We sent them] with clear proofs and written ordinances. And We revealed to you the message that you may make clear to the people what was sent down to them and that they might give thought.
1946 16 The Bee 45 Then, do those who have planned evil deeds feel secure that Allah will not cause the earth to swallow them or that the punishment will not come upon them from where they do not perceive?
1947 16 The Bee 46 Or that He would not seize them during their [usual] activity, and they could not cause failure?
1948 16 The Bee 47 Or that He would not seize them gradually [in a state of dread]? But indeed, your Lord is Kind and Merciful.
1949 16 The Bee 48 Have they not considered what things Allah has created? Their shadows incline to the right and to the left, prostrating to Allah, while they are humble.
1950 16 The Bee 49 And to Allah prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth of creatures, and the angels [as well], and they are not arrogant.
1951 16 The Bee 50 They fear their Lord above them, and they do what they are commanded.
1952 16 The Bee 51 And Allah has said, "Do not take for yourselves two deities. He is but one God, so fear only Me."
1953 16 The Bee 52 And to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth, and to Him is [due] worship constantly. Then is it other than Allah that you fear?
1954 16 The Bee 53 And whatever you have of favor - it is from Allah. Then when adversity touches you, to Him you cry for help.
1955 16 The Bee 54 Then when He removes the adversity from you, at once a party of you associates others with their Lord
1956 16 The Bee 55 So they will deny what We have given them. Then enjoy yourselves, for you are going to know.
1957 16 The Bee 56 And they assign to what they do not know a portion of that which We have provided them. By Allah, you will surely be questioned about what you used to invent.
1958 16 The Bee 57 And they attribute to Allah daughters - exalted is He - and for them is what they desire.
1959 16 The Bee 58 And when one of them is informed of [the birth of] a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.
1960 16 The Bee 59 He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide.
1961 16 The Bee 60 For those who do not believe in the Hereafter is the description of evil; and for Allah is the highest attribute. And He is Exalted in Might, the Wise.
1962 16 The Bee 61 And if Allah were to impose blame on the people for their wrongdoing, He would not have left upon the earth any creature, but He defers them for a specified term. And when their term has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].
1963 16 The Bee 62 And they attribute to Allah that which they dislike, and their tongues assert the lie that they will have the best [from Him]. Assuredly, they will have the Fire, and they will be [therein] neglected.
1964 16 The Bee 63 By Allah, We did certainly send [messengers] to nations before you, but Satan made their deeds attractive to them. And he is the disbelievers' ally today [as well], and they will have a painful punishment.
1965 16 The Bee 64 And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
1966 16 The Bee 65 And Allah has sent down rain from the sky and given life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who listen.
1967 16 The Bee 66 And indeed, for you in grazing livestock is a lesson. We give you drink from what is in their bellies - between excretion and blood - pure milk, palatable to drinkers.
1968 16 The Bee 67 And from the fruits of the palm trees and grapevines you take intoxicant and good provision. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who reason.
1969 16 The Bee 68 And your Lord inspired to the bee, "Take for yourself among the mountains, houses, and among the trees and [in] that which they construct.
1970 16 The Bee 69 Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you]." There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought.
1971 16 The Bee 70 And Allah created you; then He will take you in death. And among you is he who is reversed to the most decrepit [old] age so that he will not know, after [having had] knowledge, a thing. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Competent.
1972 16 The Bee 71 And Allah has favored some of you over others in provision. But those who were favored would not hand over their provision to those whom their right hands possess so they would be equal to them therein. Then is it the favor of Allah they reject?
1973 16 The Bee 72 And Allah has made for you from yourselves mates and has made for you from your mates sons and grandchildren and has provided for you from the good things. Then in falsehood do they believe and in the favor of Allah they disbelieve?
1974 16 The Bee 73 And they worship besides Allah that which does not possess for them [the power of] provision from the heavens and the earth at all, and [in fact], they are unable.
1975 16 The Bee 74 So do not assert similarities to Allah. Indeed, Allah knows and you do not know.
1976 16 The Bee 75 Allah presents an example: a slave [who is] owned and unable to do a thing and he to whom We have provided from Us good provision, so he spends from it secretly and publicly. Can they be equal? Praise to Allah! But most of them do not know.
1977 16 The Bee 76 And Allah presents an example of two men, one of them dumb and unable to do a thing, while he is a burden to his guardian. Wherever he directs him, he brings no good. Is he equal to one who commands justice, while he is on a straight path?
1978 16 The Bee 77 And to Allah belongs the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. And the command for the Hour is not but as a glance of the eye or even nearer. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
1979 16 The Bee 78 And Allah has extracted you from the wombs of your mothers not knowing a thing, and He made for you hearing and vision and intellect that perhaps you would be grateful.
1980 16 The Bee 79 Do they not see the birds controlled in the atmosphere of the sky? None holds them up except Allah. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.
1981 16 The Bee 80 And Allah has made for you from your homes a place of rest and made for you from the hides of the animals tents which you find light on your day of travel and your day of encampment; and from their wool, fur and hair is furnishing and enjoyment for a time.
1982 16 The Bee 81 And Allah has made for you, from that which He has created, shadows and has made for you from the mountains, shelters and has made for you garments which protect you from the heat and garments which protect you from your [enemy in] battle. Thus does He complete His favor upon you that you might submit [to Him].
1983 16 The Bee 82 But if they turn away, [O Muhammad] - then only upon you is [responsibility for] clear notification.
1984 16 The Bee 83 They recognize the favor of Allah; then they deny it. And most of them are disbelievers.
1985 16 The Bee 84 And [mention] the Day when We will resurrect from every nation a witness. Then it will not be permitted to the disbelievers [to apologize or make excuses], nor will they be asked to appease [Allah].
1986 16 The Bee 85 And when those who wronged see the punishment, it will not be lightened for them, nor will they be reprieved.
1987 16 The Bee 86 And when those who associated others with Allah see their "partners," they will say," Our Lord, these are our partners [to You] whom we used to invoke besides You." But they will throw at them the statement, "Indeed, you are liars."
1988 16 The Bee 87 And they will impart to Allah that Day [their] submission, and lost from them is what they used to invent.
1989 16 The Bee 88 Those who disbelieved and averted [others] from the way of Allah - We will increase them in punishment over [their] punishment for what corruption they were causing.
1990 16 The Bee 89 And [mention] the Day when We will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves. And We will bring you, [O Muhammad], as a witness over your nation. And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims.
1991 16 The Bee 90 Indeed, Allah orders justice and good conduct and giving to relatives and forbids immorality and bad conduct and oppression. He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded.
1992 16 The Bee 91 And fulfill the covenant of Allah when you have taken it, [O believers], and do not break oaths after their confirmation while you have made Allah, over you, a witness. Indeed, Allah knows what you do.
1993 16 The Bee 92 And do not be like she who untwisted her spun thread after it was strong [by] taking your oaths as [means of] deceit between you because one community is more plentiful [in number or wealth] than another community. Allah only tries you thereby. And He will surely make clear to you on the Day of Resurrection that over which you used to differ.
1994 16 The Bee 93 And if Allah had willed, He could have made you [of] one religion, but He causes to stray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And you will surely be questioned about what you used to do.
1995 16 The Bee 94 And do not take your oaths as [means of] deceit between you, lest a foot slip after it was [once] firm, and you would taste evil [in this world] for what [people] you diverted from the way of Allah, and you would have [in the Hereafter] a great punishment.
1996 16 The Bee 95 And do not exchange the covenant of Allah for a small price. Indeed, what is with Allah is best for you, if only you could know.
1997 16 The Bee 96 Whatever you have will end, but what Allah has is lasting. And We will surely give those who were patient their reward according to the best of what they used to do.
1998 16 The Bee 97 Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.
1999 16 The Bee 98 So when you recite the Qur'an, [first] seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the expelled [from His mercy].
2000 16 The Bee 99 Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.
2001 16 The Bee 100 His authority is only over those who take him as an ally and those who through him associate others with Allah.
2002 16 The Bee 101 And when We substitute a verse in place of a verse - and Allah is most knowing of what He sends down - they say, "You, [O Muhammad], are but an inventor [of lies]." But most of them do not know.
2003 16 The Bee 102 Say, [O Muhammad], "The Pure Spirit has brought it down from your Lord in truth to make firm those who believe and as guidance and good tidings to the Muslims."
2004 16 The Bee 103 And We certainly know that they say, "It is only a human being who teaches the Prophet." The tongue of the one they refer to is foreign, and this Qur'an is [in] a clear Arabic language.
2005 16 The Bee 104 Indeed, those who do not believe in the verses of Allah - Allah will not guide them, and for them is a painful punishment.
2006 16 The Bee 105 They only invent falsehood who do not believe in the verses of Allah, and it is those who are the liars.
2007 16 The Bee 106 Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah, and for them is a great punishment;
2008 16 The Bee 107 That is because they preferred the worldly life over the Hereafter and that Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.
2009 16 The Bee 108 Those are the ones over whose hearts and hearing and vision Allah has sealed, and it is those who are the heedless.
2010 16 The Bee 109 Assuredly, it is they, in the Hereafter, who will be the losers.
2011 16 The Bee 110 Then, indeed your Lord, to those who emigrated after they had been compelled [to renounce their religion] and thereafter fought [for the cause of Allah] and were patient - indeed, your Lord, after that, is Forgiving and Merciful
2012 16 The Bee 111 On the Day when every soul will come disputing for itself, and every soul will be fully compensated for what it did, and they will not be wronged.
2013 16 The Bee 112 And Allah presents an example: a city which was safe and secure, its provision coming to it in abundance from every location, but it denied the favors of Allah. So Allah made it taste the envelopment of hunger and fear for what they had been doing.
2014 16 The Bee 113 And there had certainly come to them a Messenger from among themselves, but they denied him; so punishment overtook them while they were wrongdoers.
2015 16 The Bee 114 Then eat of what Allah has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And be grateful for the favor of Allah, if it is [indeed] Him that you worship.
2016 16 The Bee 115 He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit] - then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.
2017 16 The Bee 116 And do not say about what your tongues assert of untruth, "This is lawful and this is unlawful," to invent falsehood about Allah. Indeed, those who invent falsehood about Allah will not succeed.
2018 16 The Bee 117 [It is but] a brief enjoyment, and they will have a painful punishment.
2019 16 The Bee 118 And to those who are Jews We have prohibited that which We related to you before. And We did not wrong them [thereby], but they were wronging themselves.
2020 16 The Bee 119 Then, indeed your Lord, to those who have done wrong out of ignorance and then repent after that and correct themselves - indeed, your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful.
2021 16 The Bee 120 Indeed, Abraham was a [comprehensive] leader, devoutly obedient to Allah, inclining toward truth, and he was not of those who associate others with Allah.
2022 16 The Bee 121 [He was] grateful for His favors. Allah chose him and guided him to a straight path.
2023 16 The Bee 122 And We gave him good in this world, and indeed, in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous.
2024 16 The Bee 123 Then We revealed to you, [O Muhammad], to follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of those who associate with Allah.
2025 16 The Bee 124 The sabbath was only appointed for those who differed over it. And indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.
2026 16 The Bee 125 Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.
2027 16 The Bee 126 And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed. But if you are patient - it is better for those who are patient.
2028 16 The Bee 127 And be patient, [O Muhammad], and your patience is not but through Allah. And do not grieve over them and do not be in distress over what they conspire.
2029 16 The Bee 128 Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who are doers of good.
2030 17 The Night Journey 1 Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
2031 17 The Night Journey 2 And We gave Moses the Scripture and made it a guidance for the Children of Israel that you not take other than Me as Disposer of affairs,
2032 17 The Night Journey 3 O descendants of those We carried [in the ship] with Noah. Indeed, he was a grateful servant.
2033 17 The Night Journey 4 And We conveyed to the Children of Israel in the Scripture that, "You will surely cause corruption on the earth twice, and you will surely reach [a degree of] great haughtiness.
2034 17 The Night Journey 5 So when the [time of] promise came for the first of them, We sent against you servants of Ours - those of great military might, and they probed [even] into the homes, and it was a promise fulfilled.
2035 17 The Night Journey 6 Then We gave back to you a return victory over them. And We reinforced you with wealth and sons and made you more numerous in manpower
2036 17 The Night Journey 7 [And said], "If you do good, you do good for yourselves; and if you do evil, [you do it] to yourselves." Then when the final promise came, [We sent your enemies] to sadden your faces and to enter the temple in Jerusalem, as they entered it the first time, and to destroy what they had taken over with [total] destruction.
2037 17 The Night Journey 8 [Then Allah said], "It is expected, [if you repent], that your Lord will have mercy upon you. But if you return [to sin], We will return [to punishment]. And We have made Hell, for the disbelievers, a prison-bed."
2038 17 The Night Journey 9 Indeed, this Qur'an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.
2039 17 The Night Journey 10 And that those who do not believe in the Hereafter - We have prepared for them a painful punishment.
2040 17 The Night Journey 11 And man supplicates for evil as he supplicates for good, and man is ever hasty.
2041 17 The Night Journey 12 And We have made the night and day two signs, and We erased the sign of the night and made the sign of the day visible that you may seek bounty from your Lord and may know the number of years and the account [of time]. And everything We have set out in detail.
2042 17 The Night Journey 13 And [for] every person We have imposed his fate upon his neck, and We will produce for him on the Day of Resurrection a record which he will encounter spread open.
2043 17 The Night Journey 14 [It will be said], "Read your record. Sufficient is yourself against you this Day as accountant."
2044 17 The Night Journey 15 Whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] his soul. And whoever errs only errs against it. And no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. And never would We punish until We sent a messenger.
2045 17 The Night Journey 16 And when We intend to destroy a city, We command its affluent but they defiantly disobey therein; so the word comes into effect upon it, and We destroy it with [complete] destruction.
2046 17 The Night Journey 17 And how many have We destroyed from the generations after Noah. And sufficient is your Lord, concerning the sins of His servants, as Acquainted and Seeing.
2047 17 The Night Journey 18 Whoever should desire the immediate - We hasten for him from it what We will to whom We intend. Then We have made for him Hell, which he will [enter to] burn, censured and banished.
2048 17 The Night Journey 19 But whoever desires the Hereafter and exerts the effort due to it while he is a believer - it is those whose effort is ever appreciated [by Allah].
2049 17 The Night Journey 20 To each [category] We extend - to these and to those - from the gift of your Lord. And never has the gift of your Lord been restricted.
2050 17 The Night Journey 21 Look how We have favored [in provision] some of them over others. But the Hereafter is greater in degrees [of difference] and greater in distinction.
2051 17 The Night Journey 22 Do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity and [thereby] become censured and forsaken.
2052 17 The Night Journey 23 And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word.
2053 17 The Night Journey 24 And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, "My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small."
2054 17 The Night Journey 25 Your Lord is most knowing of what is within yourselves. If you should be righteous [in intention] - then indeed He is ever, to the often returning [to Him], Forgiving.
2055 17 The Night Journey 26 And give the relative his right, and [also] the poor and the traveler, and do not spend wastefully.
2056 17 The Night Journey 27 Indeed, the wasteful are brothers of the devils, and ever has Satan been to his Lord ungrateful.
2057 17 The Night Journey 28 And if you [must] turn away from the needy awaiting mercy from your Lord which you expect, then speak to them a gentle word.
2058 17 The Night Journey 29 And do not make your hand [as] chained to your neck or extend it completely and [thereby] become blamed and insolvent.
2059 17 The Night Journey 30 Indeed, your Lord extends provision for whom He wills and restricts [it]. Indeed He is ever, concerning His servants, Acquainted and Seeing.
2060 17 The Night Journey 31 And do not kill your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Indeed, their killing is ever a great sin.
2061 17 The Night Journey 32 And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way.
2062 17 The Night Journey 33 And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden, except by right. And whoever is killed unjustly - We have given his heir authority, but let him not exceed limits in [the matter of] taking life. Indeed, he has been supported [by the law].
2063 17 The Night Journey 34 And do not approach the property of an orphan, except in the way that is best, until he reaches maturity. And fulfill [every] commitment. Indeed, the commitment is ever [that about which one will be] questioned.
2064 17 The Night Journey 35 And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with an even balance. That is the best [way] and best in result.
2065 17 The Night Journey 36 And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart - about all those [one] will be questioned.
2066 17 The Night Journey 37 And do not walk upon the earth exultantly. Indeed, you will never tear the earth [apart], and you will never reach the mountains in height.
2067 17 The Night Journey 38 All that - its evil is ever, in the sight of your Lord, detested.
2068 17 The Night Journey 39 That is from what your Lord has revealed to you, [O Muhammad], of wisdom. And, [O mankind], do not make [as equal] with Allah another deity, lest you be thrown into Hell, blamed and banished.
2069 17 The Night Journey 40 Then, has your Lord chosen you for [having] sons and taken from among the angels daughters? Indeed, you say a grave saying.
2070 17 The Night Journey 41 And We have certainly diversified [the contents] in this Qur'an that mankind may be reminded, but it does not increase the disbelievers except in aversion.
2071 17 The Night Journey 42 Say, [O Muhammad], "If there had been with Him [other] gods, as they say, then they [each] would have sought to the Owner of the Throne a way."
2072 17 The Night Journey 43 Exalted is He and high above what they say by great sublimity.
2073 17 The Night Journey 44 The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.
2074 17 The Night Journey 45 And when you recite the Qur'an, We put between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter a concealed partition.
2075 17 The Night Journey 46 And We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And when you mention your Lord alone in the Qur'an, they turn back in aversion.
2076 17 The Night Journey 47 We are most knowing of how they listen to it when they listen to you and [of] when they are in private conversation, when the wrongdoers say, "You follow not but a man affected by magic."
2077 17 The Night Journey 48 Look how they strike for you comparisons; but they have strayed, so they cannot [find] a way.
2078 17 The Night Journey 49 And they say, "When we are bones and crumbled particles, will we [truly] be resurrected as a new creation?"
2079 17 The Night Journey 50 Say, "Be you stones or iron
2080 17 The Night Journey 51 Or [any] creation of that which is great within your breasts." And they will say, "Who will restore us?" Say, "He who brought you forth the first time." Then they will nod their heads toward you and say, "When is that?" Say, "Perhaps it will be soon -
2081 17 The Night Journey 52 On the Day He will call you and you will respond with praise of Him and think that you had not remained [in the world] except for a little."
2082 17 The Night Journey 53 And tell My servants to say that which is best. Indeed, Satan induces [dissension] among them. Indeed Satan is ever, to mankind, a clear enemy.
2083 17 The Night Journey 54 Your Lord is most knowing of you. If He wills, He will have mercy upon you; or if He wills, He will punish you. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], over them as a manager.
2084 17 The Night Journey 55 And your Lord is most knowing of whoever is in the heavens and the earth. And We have made some of the prophets exceed others [in various ways], and to David We gave the book [of Psalms].
2085 17 The Night Journey 56 Say, "Invoke those you have claimed [as gods] besides Him, for they do not possess the [ability for] removal of adversity from you or [for its] transfer [to someone else]."
2086 17 The Night Journey 57 Those whom they invoke seek means of access to their Lord, [striving as to] which of them would be nearest, and they hope for His mercy and fear His punishment. Indeed, the punishment of your Lord is ever feared.
2087 17 The Night Journey 58 And there is no city but that We will destroy it before the Day of Resurrection or punish it with a severe punishment. That has ever been in the Register inscribed.
2088 17 The Night Journey 59 And nothing has prevented Us from sending signs except that the former peoples denied them. And We gave Thamud the she-camel as a visible sign, but they wronged her. And We send not the signs except as a warning.
2089 17 The Night Journey 60 And [remember, O Muhammad], when We told you, "Indeed, your Lord has encompassed the people." And We did not make the sight which We showed you except as a trial for the people, as was the accursed tree [mentioned] in the Qur'an. And We threaten them, but it increases them not except in great transgression.
2090 17 The Night Journey 61 And [mention] when We said to the angles, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He said, "Should I prostrate to one You created from clay?"
2091 17 The Night Journey 62 [Iblees] said, "Do You see this one whom You have honored above me? If You delay me until the Day of Resurrection, I will surely destroy his descendants, except for a few."
2092 17 The Night Journey 63 [Allah] said, "Go, for whoever of them follows you, indeed Hell will be the recompense of you - an ample recompense.
2093 17 The Night Journey 64 And incite [to senselessness] whoever you can among them with your voice and assault them with your horses and foot soldiers and become a partner in their wealth and their children and promise them." But Satan does not promise them except delusion.
2094 17 The Night Journey 65 Indeed, over My [believing] servants there is for you no authority. And sufficient is your Lord as Disposer of affairs.
2095 17 The Night Journey 66 It is your Lord who drives the ship for you through the sea that you may seek of His bounty. Indeed, He is ever, to you, Merciful.
2096 17 The Night Journey 67 And when adversity touches you at sea, lost are [all] those you invoke except for Him. But when He delivers you to the land, you turn away [from Him]. And ever is man ungrateful.
2097 17 The Night Journey 68 Then do you feel secure that [instead] He will not cause a part of the land to swallow you or send against you a storm of stones? Then you would not find for yourselves an advocate.
2098 17 The Night Journey 69 Or do you feel secure that He will not send you back into the sea another time and send upon you a hurricane of wind and drown you for what you denied? Then you would not find for yourselves against Us an avenger.
2099 17 The Night Journey 70 And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.
2100 17 The Night Journey 71 [Mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will call forth every people with their record [of deeds]. Then whoever is given his record in his right hand - those will read their records, and injustice will not be done to them, [even] as much as a thread [inside the date seed].
2101 17 The Night Journey 72 And whoever is blind in this [life] will be blind in the Hereafter and more astray in way.
2102 17 The Night Journey 73 And indeed, they were about to tempt you away from that which We revealed to you in order to [make] you invent about Us something else; and then they would have taken you as a friend.
2103 17 The Night Journey 74 And if We had not strengthened you, you would have almost inclined to them a little.
2104 17 The Night Journey 75 Then [if you had], We would have made you taste double [punishment in] life and double [after] death. Then you would not find for yourself against Us a helper.
2105 17 The Night Journey 76 And indeed, they were about to drive you from the land to evict you therefrom. And then [when they do], they will not remain [there] after you, except for a little.
2106 17 The Night Journey 77 [That is Our] established way for those We had sent before you of Our messengers; and you will not find in Our way any alteration.
2107 17 The Night Journey 78 Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur'an of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed.
2108 17 The Night Journey 79 And from [part of] the night, pray with it as additional [worship] for you; it is expected that your Lord will resurrect you to a praised station.
2109 17 The Night Journey 80 And say, "My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit and grant me from Yourself a supporting authority."
2110 17 The Night Journey 81 And say, "Truth has come, and falsehood has departed. Indeed is falsehood, [by nature], ever bound to depart."
2111 17 The Night Journey 82 And We send down of the Qur'an that which is healing and mercy for the believers, but it does not increase the wrongdoers except in loss.
2112 17 The Night Journey 83 And when We bestow favor upon the disbeliever, he turns away and distances himself; and when evil touches him, he is ever despairing.
2113 17 The Night Journey 84 Say, "Each works according to his manner, but your Lord is most knowing of who is best guided in way."
2114 17 The Night Journey 85 And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about the soul. Say, "The soul is of the affair of my Lord. And mankind have not been given of knowledge except a little."
2115 17 The Night Journey 86 And if We willed, We could surely do away with that which We revealed to you. Then you would not find for yourself concerning it an advocate against Us.
2116 17 The Night Journey 87 Except [We have left it with you] as a mercy from your Lord. Indeed, His favor upon you has ever been great.
2117 17 The Night Journey 88 Say, "If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants."
2118 17 The Night Journey 89 And We have certainly diversified for the people in this Qur'an from every [kind] of example, but most of the people refused [anything] except disbelief.
2119 17 The Night Journey 90 And they say, "We will not believe you until you break open for us from the ground a spring.
2120 17 The Night Journey 91 Or [until] you have a garden of palm tress and grapes and make rivers gush forth within them in force [and abundance]
2121 17 The Night Journey 92 Or you make the heaven fall upon us in fragments as you have claimed or you bring Allah and the angels before [us]
2122 17 The Night Journey 93 Or you have a house of gold or you ascend into the sky. And [even then], we will not believe in your ascension until you bring down to us a book we may read." Say, "Exalted is my Lord! Was I ever but a human messenger?"
2123 17 The Night Journey 94 And what prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them except that they said, "Has Allah sent a human messenger?"
2124 17 The Night Journey 95 Say, "If there were upon the earth angels walking securely, We would have sent down to them from the heaven an angel [as a] messenger."
2125 17 The Night Journey 96 Say, "Sufficient is Allah as Witness between me and you. Indeed he is ever, concerning His servants, Acquainted and Seeing."
2126 17 The Night Journey 97 And whoever Allah guides - he is the [rightly] guided; and whoever He sends astray - you will never find for them protectors besides Him, and We will gather them on the Day of Resurrection [fallen] on their faces - blind, dumb and deaf. Their refuge is Hell; every time it subsides We increase them in blazing fire.
2127 17 The Night Journey 98 That is their recompense because they disbelieved in Our verses and said, "When we are bones and crumbled particles, will we [truly] be resurrected [in] a new creation?"
2128 17 The Night Journey 99 Do they not see that Allah, who created the heavens and earth, is [the one] Able to create the likes of them? And He has appointed for them a term, about which there is no doubt. But the wrongdoers refuse [anything] except disbelief.
2129 17 The Night Journey 100 Say [to them], "If you possessed the depositories of the mercy of my Lord, then you would withhold out of fear of spending." And ever has man been stingy.
2130 17 The Night Journey 101 And We had certainly given Moses nine evident signs, so ask the Children of Israel [about] when he came to them and Pharaoh said to him, "Indeed I think, O Moses, that you are affected by magic."
2131 17 The Night Journey 102 [Moses] said, "You have already known that none has sent down these [signs] except the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Pharaoh, that you are destroyed."
2132 17 The Night Journey 103 So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together.
2133 17 The Night Journey 104 And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, "Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering."
2134 17 The Night Journey 105 And with the truth We have sent the Qur'an down, and with the truth it has descended. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner.
2135 17 The Night Journey 106 And [it is] a Qur'an which We have separated [by intervals] that you might recite it to the people over a prolonged period. And We have sent it down progressively.
2136 17 The Night Journey 107 Say, "Believe in it or do not believe. Indeed, those who were given knowledge before it - when it is recited to them, they fall upon their faces in prostration,
2137 17 The Night Journey 108 And they say, "Exalted is our Lord! Indeed, the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled."
2138 17 The Night Journey 109 And they fall upon their faces weeping, and the Qur'an increases them in humble submission.
2139 17 The Night Journey 110 Say, "Call upon Allah or call upon the Most Merciful. Whichever [name] you call - to Him belong the best names." And do not recite [too] loudly in your prayer or [too] quietly but seek between that an [intermediate] way.
2140 17 The Night Journey 111 And say, "Praise to Allah, who has not taken a son and has had no partner in [His] dominion and has no [need of a] protector out of weakness; and glorify Him with [great] glorification."
2141 18 The Cave 1 [All] praise is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance.
2142 18 The Cave 2 [He has made it] straight, to warn of severe punishment from Him and to give good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a good reward
2143 18 The Cave 3 In which they will remain forever
2144 18 The Cave 4 And to warn those who say, "Allah has taken a son."
2145 18 The Cave 5 They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers. Grave is the word that comes out of their mouths; they speak not except a lie.
2146 18 The Cave 6 Then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them, [O Muhammad], if they do not believe in this message, [and] out of sorrow.
2147 18 The Cave 7 Indeed, We have made that which is on the earth adornment for it that We may test them [as to] which of them is best in deed.
2148 18 The Cave 8 And indeed, We will make that which is upon it [into] a barren ground.
2149 18 The Cave 9 Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were, among Our signs, a wonder?
2150 18 The Cave 10 [Mention] when the youths retreated to the cave and said, "Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance."
2151 18 The Cave 11 So We cast [a cover of sleep] over their ears within the cave for a number of years.
2152 18 The Cave 12 Then We awakened them that We might show which of the two factions was most precise in calculating what [extent] they had remained in time.
2153 18 The Cave 13 It is We who relate to you, [O Muhammad], their story in truth. Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance.
2154 18 The Cave 14 And We made firm their hearts when they stood up and said, "Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. Never will we invoke besides Him any deity. We would have certainly spoken, then, an excessive transgression.
2155 18 The Cave 15 These, our people, have taken besides Him deities. Why do they not bring for [worship of] them a clear authority? And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie?"
2156 18 The Cave 16 [The youths said to one another], "And when you have withdrawn from them and that which they worship other than Allah, retreat to the cave. Your Lord will spread out for you of His mercy and will prepare for you from your affair facility."
2157 18 The Cave 17 And [had you been present], you would see the sun when it rose, inclining away from their cave on the right, and when it set, passing away from them on the left, while they were [laying] within an open space thereof. That was from the signs of Allah. He whom Allah guides is the [rightly] guided, but he whom He leaves astray - never will you find for him a protecting guide.
2158 18 The Cave 18 And you would think them awake, while they were asleep. And We turned them to the right and to the left, while their dog stretched his forelegs at the entrance. If you had looked at them, you would have turned from them in flight and been filled by them with terror.
2159 18 The Cave 19 And similarly, We awakened them that they might question one another. Said a speaker from among them, "How long have you remained [here]?" They said, "We have remained a day or part of a day." They said, "Your Lord is most knowing of how long you remained. So send one of you with this silver coin of yours to the city and let him look to which is the best of food and bring you provision from it and let him be cautious. And let no one be aware of you.
2160 18 The Cave 20 Indeed, if they come to know of you, they will stone you or return you to their religion. And never would you succeed, then - ever."
2161 18 The Cave 21 And similarly, We caused them to be found that they [who found them] would know that the promise of Allah is truth and that of the Hour there is no doubt. [That was] when they disputed among themselves about their affair and [then] said, "Construct over them a structure. Their Lord is most knowing about them." Said those who prevailed in the matter, "We will surely take [for ourselves] over them a masjid."
2162 18 The Cave 22 They will say there were three, the fourth of them being their dog; and they will say there were five, the sixth of them being their dog - guessing at the unseen; and they will say there were seven, and the eighth of them was their dog. Say, [O Muhammad], "My Lord is most knowing of their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument and do not inquire about them among [the speculators] from anyone."
2163 18 The Cave 23 And never say of anything, "Indeed, I will do that tomorrow,"
2164 18 The Cave 24 Except [when adding], "If Allah wills." And remember your Lord when you forget [it] and say, "Perhaps my Lord will guide me to what is nearer than this to right conduct."
2165 18 The Cave 25 And they remained in their cave for three hundred years and exceeded by nine.
2166 18 The Cave 26 Say, "Allah is most knowing of how long they remained. He has [knowledge of] the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone."
2167 18 The Cave 27 And recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord. There is no changer of His words, and never will you find in other than Him a refuge.
2168 18 The Cave 28 And keep yourself patient [by being] with those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His countenance. And let not your eyes pass beyond them, desiring adornments of the worldly life, and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance and who follows his desire and whose affair is ever [in] neglect.
2169 18 The Cave 29 And say, "The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills - let him believe; and whoever wills - let him disbelieve." Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a fire whose walls will surround them. And if they call for relief, they will be relieved with water like murky oil, which scalds [their] faces. Wretched is the drink, and evil is the resting place.
2170 18 The Cave 30 Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds - indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of any who did well in deeds.
2171 18 The Cave 31 Those will have gardens of perpetual residence; beneath them rivers will flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining therein on adorned couches. Excellent is the reward, and good is the resting place.
2172 18 The Cave 32 And present to them an example of two men: We granted to one of them two gardens of grapevines, and We bordered them with palm trees and placed between them [fields of] crops.
2173 18 The Cave 33 Each of the two gardens produced its fruit and did not fall short thereof in anything. And We caused to gush forth within them a river.
2174 18 The Cave 34 And he had fruit, so he said to his companion while he was conversing with him, "I am greater than you in wealth and mightier in [numbers of] men."
2175 18 The Cave 35 And he entered his garden while he was unjust to himself. He said, "I do not think that this will perish - ever.
2176 18 The Cave 36 And I do not think the Hour will occur. And even if I should be brought back to my Lord, I will surely find better than this as a return."
2177 18 The Cave 37 His companion said to him while he was conversing with him, "Have you disbelieved in He who created you from dust and then from a sperm-drop and then proportioned you [as] a man?
2178 18 The Cave 38 But as for me, He is Allah, my Lord, and I do not associate with my Lord anyone.
2179 18 The Cave 39 And why did you, when you entered your garden, not say, 'What Allah willed [has occurred]; there is no power except in Allah '? Although you see me less than you in wealth and children,
2180 18 The Cave 40 It may be that my Lord will give me [something] better than your garden and will send upon it a calamity from the sky, and it will become a smooth, dusty ground,
2181 18 The Cave 41 Or its water will become sunken [into the earth], so you would never be able to seek it."
2182 18 The Cave 42 And his fruits were encompassed [by ruin], so he began to turn his hands about [in dismay] over what he had spent on it, while it had collapsed upon its trellises, and said, "Oh, I wish I had not associated with my Lord anyone."
2183 18 The Cave 43 And there was for him no company to aid him other than Allah, nor could he defend himself.
2184 18 The Cave 44 There the authority is [completely] for Allah, the Truth. He is best in reward and best in outcome.
2185 18 The Cave 45 And present to them the example of the life of this world, [its being] like rain which We send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and [then] it becomes dry remnants, scattered by the winds. And Allah is ever, over all things, Perfect in Ability.
2186 18 The Cave 46 Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one's] hope.
2187 18 The Cave 47 And [warn of] the Day when We will remove the mountains and you will see the earth prominent, and We will gather them and not leave behind from them anyone.
2188 18 The Cave 48 And they will be presented before your Lord in rows, [and He will say], "You have certainly come to Us just as We created you the first time. But you claimed that We would never make for you an appointment."
2189 18 The Cave 49 And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, "Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?" And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one.
2190 18 The Cave 50 And [mention] when We said to the angels, "Prostrate to Adam," and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.
2191 18 The Cave 51 I did not make them witness to the creation of the heavens and the earth or to the creation of themselves, and I would not have taken the misguiders as assistants.
2192 18 The Cave 52 And [warn of] the Day when He will say, "Call 'My partners' whom you claimed," and they will invoke them, but they will not respond to them. And We will put between them [a valley of] destruction.
2193 18 The Cave 53 And the criminals will see the Fire and will be certain that they are to fall therein. And they will not find from it a way elsewhere.
2194 18 The Cave 54 And We have certainly diversified in this Qur'an for the people from every [kind of] example; but man has ever been, most of anything, [prone to] dispute.
2195 18 The Cave 55 And nothing has prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them and from asking forgiveness of their Lord except that there [must] befall them the [accustomed] precedent of the former peoples or that the punishment should come [directly] before them.
2196 18 The Cave 56 And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule.
2197 18 The Cave 57 And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord but turns away from them and forgets what his hands have put forth? Indeed, We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if you invite them to guidance - they will never be guided, then - ever.
2198 18 The Cave 58 And your Lord is the Forgiving, full of mercy. If He were to impose blame upon them for what they earned, He would have hastened for them the punishment. Rather, for them is an appointment from which they will never find an escape.
2199 18 The Cave 59 And those cities - We destroyed them when they wronged, and We made for their destruction an appointed time.
2200 18 The Cave 60 And [mention] when Moses said to his servant, "I will not cease [traveling] until I reach the junction of the two seas or continue for a long period."
2201 18 The Cave 61 But when they reached the junction between them, they forgot their fish, and it took its course into the sea, slipping away.
2202 18 The Cave 62 So when they had passed beyond it, [Moses] said to his boy, "Bring us our morning meal. We have certainly suffered in this, our journey, [much] fatigue."
2203 18 The Cave 63 He said, "Did you see when we retired to the rock? Indeed, I forgot [there] the fish. And none made me forget it except Satan - that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea amazingly".
2204 18 The Cave 64 [Moses] said, "That is what we were seeking." So they returned, following their footprints.
2205 18 The Cave 65 And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.
2206 18 The Cave 66 Moses said to him, "May I follow you on [the condition] that you teach me from what you have been taught of sound judgement?"
2207 18 The Cave 67 He said, "Indeed, with me you will never be able to have patience.
2208 18 The Cave 68 And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge?"
2209 18 The Cave 69 [Moses] said, "You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order."
2210 18 The Cave 70 He said, "Then if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mention."
2211 18 The Cave 71 So they set out, until when they had embarked on the ship, al-Khidh r tore it open. [Moses] said, "Have you torn it open to drown its people? You have certainly done a grave thing."
2212 18 The Cave 72 [Al-Khidh r] said, "Did I not say that with me you would never be able to have patience?"
2213 18 The Cave 73 [Moses] said, "Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty."
2214 18 The Cave 74 So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidh r killed him. [Moses] said, "Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing."
2215 18 The Cave 75 [Al-Khidh r] said, "Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?"
2216 18 The Cave 76 [Moses] said, "If I should ask you about anything after this, then do not keep me as a companion. You have obtained from me an excuse."
2217 18 The Cave 77 So they set out, until when they came to the people of a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them hospitality. And they found therein a wall about to collapse, so al-Khidh r restored it. [Moses] said, "If you wished, you could have taken for it a payment."
2218 18 The Cave 78 [Al-Khidh r] said, "This is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience.
2219 18 The Cave 79 As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working at sea. So I intended to cause defect in it as there was after them a king who seized every [good] ship by force.
2220 18 The Cave 80 And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief.
2221 18 The Cave 81 So we intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy.
2222 18 The Cave 82 And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience."
2223 18 The Cave 83 And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about Dhul-Qarnayn. Say, "I will recite to you about him a report."
2224 18 The Cave 84 Indeed We established him upon the earth, and We gave him to everything a way.
2225 18 The Cave 85 So he followed a way
2226 18 The Cave 86 Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it [as if] setting in a spring of dark mud, and he found near it a people. Allah said, "O Dhul-Qarnayn, either you punish [them] or else adopt among them [a way of] goodness."
2227 18 The Cave 87 He said, "As for one who wrongs, we will punish him. Then he will be returned to his Lord, and He will punish him with a terrible punishment.
2228 18 The Cave 88 But as for one who believes and does righteousness, he will have a reward of Paradise, and we will speak to him from our command with ease."
2229 18 The Cave 89 Then he followed a way
2230 18 The Cave 90 Until, when he came to the rising of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We had not made against it any shield.
2231 18 The Cave 91 Thus. And We had encompassed [all] that he had in knowledge.
2232 18 The Cave 92 Then he followed a way
2233 18 The Cave 93 Until, when he reached [a pass] between two mountains, he found beside them a people who could hardly understand [his] speech.
2234 18 The Cave 94 They said, "O Dhul-Qarnayn, indeed Gog and Magog are [great] corrupters in the land. So may we assign for you an expenditure that you might make between us and them a barrier?"
2235 18 The Cave 95 He said, "That in which my Lord has established me is better [than what you offer], but assist me with strength; I will make between you and them a dam.
2236 18 The Cave 96 Bring me sheets of iron" - until, when he had leveled [them] between the two mountain walls, he said, "Blow [with bellows]," until when he had made it [like] fire, he said, "Bring me, that I may pour over it molten copper."
2237 18 The Cave 97 So Gog and Magog were unable to pass over it, nor were they able [to effect] in it any penetration.
2238 18 The Cave 98 [Dhul-Qarnayn] said, "This is a mercy from my Lord; but when the promise of my Lord comes, He will make it level, and ever is the promise of my Lord true."
2239 18 The Cave 99 And We will leave them that day surging over each other, and [then] the Horn will be blown, and We will assemble them in [one] assembly.
2240 18 The Cave 100 And We will present Hell that Day to the Disbelievers, on display -
2241 18 The Cave 101 Those whose eyes had been within a cover [removed] from My remembrance, and they were not able to hear.
2242 18 The Cave 102 Then do those who disbelieve think that they can take My servants instead of Me as allies? Indeed, We have prepared Hell for the disbelievers as a lodging.
2243 18 The Cave 103 Say, [O Muhammad], "Shall we [believers] inform you of the greatest losers as to [their] deeds?
2244 18 The Cave 104 [They are] those whose effort is lost in worldly life, while they think that they are doing well in work."
2245 18 The Cave 105 Those are the ones who disbelieve in the verses of their Lord and in [their] meeting Him, so their deeds have become worthless; and We will not assign to them on the Day of Resurrection any importance.
2246 18 The Cave 106 That is their recompense - Hell - for what they denied and [because] they took My signs and My messengers in ridicule.
2247 18 The Cave 107 Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds - they will have the Gardens of Paradise as a lodging,
2248 18 The Cave 108 Wherein they abide eternally. They will not desire from it any transfer.
2249 18 The Cave 109 Say, "If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as a supplement."
2250 18 The Cave 110 Say, "I am only a man like you, to whom has been revealed that your god is one God. So whoever would hope for the meeting with his Lord - let him do righteous work and not associate in the worship of his Lord anyone."
2251 19 Mary 1 Kaf, Ha, Ya, 'Ayn, Sad.
2252 19 Mary 2 [This is] a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah
2253 19 Mary 3 When he called to his Lord a private supplication.
2254 19 Mary 4 He said, "My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy.
2255 19 Mary 5 And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir
2256 19 Mary 6 Who will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You]."
2257 19 Mary 7 [He was told], "O Zechariah, indeed We give you good tidings of a boy whose name will be John. We have not assigned to any before [this] name."
2258 19 Mary 8 He said, "My Lord, how will I have a boy when my wife has been barren and I have reached extreme old age?"
2259 19 Mary 9 [An angel] said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, for I created you before, while you were nothing.' "
2260 19 Mary 10 [Zechariah] said, "My Lord, make for me a sign." He said, "Your sign is that you will not speak to the people for three nights, [being] sound."
2261 19 Mary 11 So he came out to his people from the prayer chamber and signaled to them to exalt [Allah] in the morning and afternoon.
2262 19 Mary 12 [Allah] said, "O John, take the Scripture with determination." And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy
2263 19 Mary 13 And affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of Allah
2264 19 Mary 14 And dutiful to his parents, and he was not a disobedient tyrant.
2265 19 Mary 15 And peace be upon him the day he was born and the day he dies and the day he is raised alive.
2266 19 Mary 16 And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east.
2267 19 Mary 17 And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man.
2268 19 Mary 18 She said, "Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah."
2269 19 Mary 19 He said, "I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy."
2270 19 Mary 20 She said, "How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?"
2271 19 Mary 21 He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.' "
2272 19 Mary 22 So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place.
2273 19 Mary 23 And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree. She said, "Oh, I wish I had died before this and was in oblivion, forgotten."
2274 19 Mary 24 But he called her from below her, "Do not grieve; your Lord has provided beneath you a stream.
2275 19 Mary 25 And shake toward you the trunk of the palm tree; it will drop upon you ripe, fresh dates.
2276 19 Mary 26 So eat and drink and be contented. And if you see from among humanity anyone, say, 'Indeed, I have vowed to the Most Merciful abstention, so I will not speak today to [any] man.' "
2277 19 Mary 27 Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, "O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented.
2278 19 Mary 28 O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste."
2279 19 Mary 29 So she pointed to him. They said, "How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?"
2280 19 Mary 30 [Jesus] said, "Indeed, I am the servant of Allah. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet.
2281 19 Mary 31 And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah as long as I remain alive
2282 19 Mary 32 And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant.
2283 19 Mary 33 And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive."
2284 19 Mary 34 That is Jesus, the son of Mary - the word of truth about which they are in dispute.
2285 19 Mary 35 It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.
2286 19 Mary 36 [Jesus said], "And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path."
2287 19 Mary 37 Then the factions differed [concerning Jesus] from among them, so woe to those who disbelieved - from the scene of a tremendous Day.
2288 19 Mary 38 How [clearly] they will hear and see the Day they come to Us, but the wrongdoers today are in clear error.
2289 19 Mary 39 And warn them, [O Muhammad], of the Day of Regret, when the matter will be concluded; and [yet], they are in [a state of] heedlessness, and they do not believe.
2290 19 Mary 40 Indeed, it is We who will inherit the earth and whoever is on it, and to Us they will be returned.
2291 19 Mary 41 And mention in the Book [the story of] Abraham. Indeed, he was a man of truth and a prophet.
2292 19 Mary 42 [Mention] when he said to his father, "O my father, why do you worship that which does not hear and does not see and will not benefit you at all?
2293 19 Mary 43 O my father, indeed there has come to me of knowledge that which has not come to you, so follow me; I will guide you to an even path.
2294 19 Mary 44 O my father, do not worship Satan. Indeed Satan has ever been, to the Most Merciful, disobedient.
2295 19 Mary 45 O my father, indeed I fear that there will touch you a punishment from the Most Merciful so you would be to Satan a companion [in Hellfire]."
2296 19 Mary 46 [His father] said, "Have you no desire for my gods, O Abraham? If you do not desist, I will surely stone you, so avoid me a prolonged time."
2297 19 Mary 47 [Abraham] said, "Peace will be upon you. I will ask forgiveness for you of my Lord. Indeed, He is ever gracious to me.
2298 19 Mary 48 And I will leave you and those you invoke other than Allah and will invoke my Lord. I expect that I will not be in invocation to my Lord unhappy."
2299 19 Mary 49 So when he had left them and those they worshipped other than Allah, We gave him Isaac and Jacob, and each [of them] We made a prophet.
2300 19 Mary 50 And We gave them of Our mercy, and we made for them a reputation of high honor.
2301 19 Mary 51 And mention in the Book, Moses. Indeed, he was chosen, and he was a messenger and a prophet.
2302 19 Mary 52 And We called him from the side of the mount at [his] right and brought him near, confiding [to him].
2303 19 Mary 53 And We gave him out of Our mercy his brother Aaron as a prophet.
2304 19 Mary 54 And mention in the Book, Ishmael. Indeed, he was true to his promise, and he was a messenger and a prophet.
2305 19 Mary 55 And he used to enjoin on his people prayer and zakah and was to his Lord pleasing.
2306 19 Mary 56 And mention in the Book, Idrees. Indeed, he was a man of truth and a prophet.
2307 19 Mary 57 And We raised him to a high station.
2308 19 Mary 58 Those were the ones upon whom Allah bestowed favor from among the prophets of the descendants of Adam and of those We carried [in the ship] with Noah, and of the descendants of Abraham and Israel, and of those whom We guided and chose. When the verses of the Most Merciful were recited to them, they fell in prostration and weeping.
2309 19 Mary 59 But there came after them successors who neglected prayer and pursued desires; so they are going to meet evil -
2310 19 Mary 60 Except those who repent, believe and do righteousness; for those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged at all.
2311 19 Mary 61 [Therein are] gardens of perpetual residence which the Most Merciful has promised His servants in the unseen. Indeed, His promise has ever been coming.
2312 19 Mary 62 They will not hear therein any ill speech - only [greetings of] peace - and they will have their provision therein, morning and afternoon.
2313 19 Mary 63 That is Paradise, which We give as inheritance to those of Our servants who were fearing of Allah.
2314 19 Mary 64 [Gabriel said], "And we [angels] descend not except by the order of your Lord. To Him belongs that before us and that behind us and what is in between. And never is your Lord forgetful -
2315 19 Mary 65 Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them - so worship Him and have patience for His worship. Do you know of any similarity to Him?"
2316 19 Mary 66 And the disbeliever says, "When I have died, am I going to be brought forth alive?"
2317 19 Mary 67 Does man not remember that We created him before, while he was nothing?
2318 19 Mary 68 So by your Lord, We will surely gather them and the devils; then We will bring them to be present around Hell upon their knees.
2319 19 Mary 69 Then We will surely extract from every sect those of them who were worst against the Most Merciful in insolence.
2320 19 Mary 70 Then, surely it is We who are most knowing of those most worthy of burning therein.
2321 19 Mary 71 And there is none of you except he will come to it. This is upon your Lord an inevitability decreed.
2322 19 Mary 72 Then We will save those who feared Allah and leave the wrongdoers within it, on their knees.
2323 19 Mary 73 And when Our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, those who disbelieve say to those who believe, "Which of [our] two parties is best in position and best in association?"
2324 19 Mary 74 And how many a generation have We destroyed before them who were better in possessions and [outward] appearance?
2325 19 Mary 75 Say, "Whoever is in error - let the Most Merciful extend for him an extension [in wealth and time] until, when they see that which they were promised - either punishment [in this world] or the Hour [of resurrection] - they will come to know who is worst in position and weaker in soldiers."
2326 19 Mary 76 And Allah increases those who were guided, in guidance, and the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for recourse.
2327 19 Mary 77 Then, have you seen he who disbelieved in Our verses and said, "I will surely be given wealth and children [in the next life]?"
2328 19 Mary 78 Has he looked into the unseen, or has he taken from the Most Merciful a promise?
2329 19 Mary 79 No! We will record what he says and extend for him from the punishment extensively.
2330 19 Mary 80 And We will inherit him [in] what he mentions, and he will come to Us alone.
2331 19 Mary 81 And they have taken besides Allah [false] deities that they would be for them [a source of] honor.
2332 19 Mary 82 No! Those "gods" will deny their worship of them and will be against them opponents [on the Day of Judgement].
2333 19 Mary 83 Do you not see that We have sent the devils upon the disbelievers, inciting them to [evil] with [constant] incitement?
2334 19 Mary 84 So be not impatient over them. We only count out to them a [limited] number.
2335 19 Mary 85 On the Day We will gather the righteous to the Most Merciful as a delegation
2336 19 Mary 86 And will drive the criminals to Hell in thirst
2337 19 Mary 87 None will have [power of] intercession except he who had taken from the Most Merciful a covenant.
2338 19 Mary 88 And they say, "The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son."
2339 19 Mary 89 You have done an atrocious thing.
2340 19 Mary 90 The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation
2341 19 Mary 91 That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son.
2342 19 Mary 92 And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son.
2343 19 Mary 93 There is no one in the heavens and earth but that he comes to the Most Merciful as a servant.
2344 19 Mary 94 He has enumerated them and counted them a [full] counting.
2345 19 Mary 95 And all of them are coming to Him on the Day of Resurrection alone.
2346 19 Mary 96 Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds - the Most Merciful will appoint for them affection.
2347 19 Mary 97 So, [O Muhammad], We have only made Qur'an easy in the Arabic language that you may give good tidings thereby to the righteous and warn thereby a hostile people.
2348 19 Mary 98 And how many have We destroyed before them of generations? Do you perceive of them anyone or hear from them a sound?
2349 20 Taa-Haa 1 Ta, Ha.
2350 20 Taa-Haa 2 We have not sent down to you the Qur'an that you be distressed
2351 20 Taa-Haa 3 But only as a reminder for those who fear [Allah] -
2352 20 Taa-Haa 4 A revelation from He who created the earth and highest heavens,
2353 20 Taa-Haa 5 The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established.
2354 20 Taa-Haa 6 To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is on the earth and what is between them and what is under the soil.
2355 20 Taa-Haa 7 And if you speak aloud - then indeed, He knows the secret and what is [even] more hidden.
2356 20 Taa-Haa 8 Allah - there is no deity except Him. To Him belong the best names.
2357 20 Taa-Haa 9 And has the story of Moses reached you? -
2358 20 Taa-Haa 10 When he saw a fire and said to his family, "Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire; perhaps I can bring you a torch or find at the fire some guidance."
2359 20 Taa-Haa 11 And when he came to it, he was called, "O Moses,
2360 20 Taa-Haa 12 Indeed, I am your Lord, so remove your sandals. Indeed, you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.
2361 20 Taa-Haa 13 And I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed [to you].
2362 20 Taa-Haa 14 Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.
2363 20 Taa-Haa 15 Indeed, the Hour is coming - I almost conceal it - so that every soul may be recompensed according to that for which it strives.
2364 20 Taa-Haa 16 So do not let one avert you from it who does not believe in it and follows his desire, for you [then] would perish.
2365 20 Taa-Haa 17 And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?"
2366 20 Taa-Haa 18 He said, "It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses."
2367 20 Taa-Haa 19 [Allah] said, "Throw it down, O Moses."
2368 20 Taa-Haa 20 So he threw it down, and thereupon it was a snake, moving swiftly.
2369 20 Taa-Haa 21 [Allah] said, "Seize it and fear not; We will return it to its former condition.
2370 20 Taa-Haa 22 And draw in your hand to your side; it will come out white without disease - another sign,
2371 20 Taa-Haa 23 That We may show you [some] of Our greater signs.
2372 20 Taa-Haa 24 Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed."
2373 20 Taa-Haa 25 [Moses] said, "My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance]
2374 20 Taa-Haa 26 And ease for me my task
2375 20 Taa-Haa 27 And untie the knot from my tongue
2376 20 Taa-Haa 28 That they may understand my speech.
2377 20 Taa-Haa 29 And appoint for me a minister from my family -
2378 20 Taa-Haa 30 Aaron, my brother.
2379 20 Taa-Haa 31 Increase through him my strength
2380 20 Taa-Haa 32 And let him share my task
2381 20 Taa-Haa 33 That we may exalt You much
2382 20 Taa-Haa 34 And remember You much.
2383 20 Taa-Haa 35 Indeed, You are of us ever Seeing."
2384 20 Taa-Haa 36 [Allah] said, "You have been granted your request, O Moses.
2385 20 Taa-Haa 37 And We had already conferred favor upon you another time,
2386 20 Taa-Haa 38 When We inspired to your mother what We inspired,
2387 20 Taa-Haa 39 [Saying], 'Cast him into the chest and cast it into the river, and the river will throw it onto the bank; there will take him an enemy to Me and an enemy to him.' And I bestowed upon you love from Me that you would be brought up under My eye.
2388 20 Taa-Haa 40 [And We favored you] when your sister went and said, 'Shall I direct you to someone who will be responsible for him?' So We restored you to your mother that she might be content and not grieve. And you killed someone, but We saved you from retaliation and tried you with a [severe] trial. And you remained [some] years among the people of Madyan. Then you came [here] at the decreed time, O Moses.
2389 20 Taa-Haa 41 And I produced you for Myself.
2390 20 Taa-Haa 42 Go, you and your brother, with My signs and do not slacken in My remembrance.
2391 20 Taa-Haa 43 Go, both of you, to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.
2392 20 Taa-Haa 44 And speak to him with gentle speech that perhaps he may be reminded or fear [Allah]."
2393 20 Taa-Haa 45 They said, "Our Lord, indeed we are afraid that he will hasten [punishment] against us or that he will transgress."
2394 20 Taa-Haa 46 [Allah] said, "Fear not. Indeed, I am with you both; I hear and I see.
2395 20 Taa-Haa 47 So go to him and say, 'Indeed, we are messengers of your Lord, so send with us the Children of Israel and do not torment them. We have come to you with a sign from your Lord. And peace will be upon he who follows the guidance.
2396 20 Taa-Haa 48 Indeed, it has been revealed to us that the punishment will be upon whoever denies and turns away.' "
2397 20 Taa-Haa 49 [Pharaoh] said, "So who is the Lord of you two, O Moses?"
2398 20 Taa-Haa 50 He said, "Our Lord is He who gave each thing its form and then guided [it]."
2399 20 Taa-Haa 51 [Pharaoh] said, "Then what is the case of the former generations?"
2400 20 Taa-Haa 52 [Moses] said, "The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord neither errs nor forgets."
2401 20 Taa-Haa 53 [It is He] who has made for you the earth as a bed [spread out] and inserted therein for you roadways and sent down from the sky, rain and produced thereby categories of various plants.
2402 20 Taa-Haa 54 Eat [therefrom] and pasture your livestock. Indeed, in that are signs for those of intelligence.
2403 20 Taa-Haa 55 From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.
2404 20 Taa-Haa 56 And We certainly showed Pharaoh Our signs - all of them - but he denied and refused.
2405 20 Taa-Haa 57 He said, "Have you come to us to drive us out of our land with your magic, O Moses?
2406 20 Taa-Haa 58 Then we will surely bring you magic like it, so make between us and you an appointment, which we will not fail to keep and neither will you, in a place assigned."
2407 20 Taa-Haa 59 [Moses] said, "Your appointment is on the day of the festival when the people assemble at mid-morning."
2408 20 Taa-Haa 60 So Pharaoh went away, put together his plan, and then came [to Moses].
2409 20 Taa-Haa 61 Moses said to the magicians summoned by Pharaoh, "Woe to you! Do not invent a lie against Allah or He will exterminate you with a punishment; and he has failed who invents [such falsehood]."
2410 20 Taa-Haa 62 So they disputed over their affair among themselves and concealed their private conversation.
2411 20 Taa-Haa 63 They said, "Indeed, these are two magicians who want to drive you out of your land with their magic and do away with your most exemplary way.
2412 20 Taa-Haa 64 So resolve upon your plan and then come [forward] in line. And he has succeeded today who overcomes."
2413 20 Taa-Haa 65 They said, "O Moses, either you throw or we will be the first to throw."
2414 20 Taa-Haa 66 He said, "Rather, you throw." And suddenly their ropes and staffs seemed to him from their magic that they were moving [like snakes].
2415 20 Taa-Haa 67 And he sensed within himself apprehension, did Moses.
2416 20 Taa-Haa 68 Allah said, "Fear not. Indeed, it is you who are superior.
