Surah As-Saaffat (Those Ranges in Ranks) - Aya count 182

وَٱلصَّـٰۤفَّـٰتِ صَفࣰّا ﴿١﴾

By those [angels] lined up in rows

فَٱلزَّ ٰ⁠جِرَ ٰ⁠تِ زَجۡرࣰا ﴿٢﴾

And those who drive [the clouds]

فَٱلتَّـٰلِیَـٰتِ ذِكۡرًا ﴿٣﴾

And those who recite the message,

إِنَّ إِلَـٰهَكُمۡ لَوَ ٰ⁠حِدࣱ ﴿٤﴾

Indeed, your God is One,

رَّبُّ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَ ٰ⁠تِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَمَا بَیۡنَهُمَا وَرَبُّ ٱلۡمَشَـٰرِقِ ﴿٥﴾

Lord of the heavens and the earth and that between them and Lord of the sunrises.

إِنَّا زَیَّنَّا ٱلسَّمَاۤءَ ٱلدُّنۡیَا بِزِینَةٍ ٱلۡكَوَاكِبِ ﴿٦﴾

Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars

وَحِفۡظࣰا مِّن كُلِّ شَیۡطَـٰنࣲ مَّارِدࣲ ﴿٧﴾

And as protection against every rebellious devil

لَّا یَسَّمَّعُونَ إِلَى ٱلۡمَلَإِ ٱلۡأَعۡلَىٰ وَیُقۡذَفُونَ مِن كُلِّ جَانِبࣲ ﴿٨﴾

[So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side,

دُحُورࣰاۖ وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابࣱ وَاصِبٌ ﴿٩﴾

Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment,

إِلَّا مَنۡ خَطِفَ ٱلۡخَطۡفَةَ فَأَتۡبَعَهُۥ شِهَابࣱ ثَاقِبࣱ ﴿١٠﴾

Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].

فَٱسۡتَفۡتِهِمۡ أَهُمۡ أَشَدُّ خَلۡقًا أَم مَّنۡ خَلَقۡنَاۤۚ إِنَّا خَلَقۡنَـٰهُم مِّن طِینࣲ لَّازِبِۭ ﴿١١﴾

Then inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Are they a stronger [or more difficult] creation or those [others] We have created?" Indeed, We created men from sticky clay.

بَلۡ عَجِبۡتَ وَیَسۡخَرُونَ ﴿١٢﴾

But you wonder, while they mock,

وَإِذَا ذُكِّرُواْ لَا یَذۡكُرُونَ ﴿١٣﴾

And when they are reminded, they remember not.

وَإِذَا رَأَوۡاْ ءَایَةࣰ یَسۡتَسۡخِرُونَ ﴿١٤﴾

And when they see a sign, they ridicule

وَقَالُوۤاْ إِنۡ هَـٰذَاۤ إِلَّا سِحۡرࣱ مُّبِینٌ ﴿١٥﴾

And say, "This is not but obvious magic.

أَءِذَا مِتۡنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابࣰا وَعِظَـٰمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَبۡعُوثُونَ ﴿١٦﴾

When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?

أَوَءَابَاۤؤُنَا ٱلۡأَوَّلُونَ ﴿١٧﴾

And our forefathers [as well]?"

قُلۡ نَعَمۡ وَأَنتُمۡ دَ ٰ⁠خِرُونَ ﴿١٨﴾

Say, "Yes, and you will be [rendered] contemptible."

فَإِنَّمَا هِیَ زَجۡرَةࣱ وَ ٰ⁠حِدَةࣱ فَإِذَا هُمۡ یَنظُرُونَ ﴿١٩﴾

It will be only one shout, and at once they will be observing.

وَقَالُواْ یَـٰوَیۡلَنَا هَـٰذَا یَوۡمُ ٱلدِّینِ ﴿٢٠﴾

They will say, "O woe to us! This is the Day of Recompense."

هَـٰذَا یَوۡمُ ٱلۡفَصۡلِ ٱلَّذِی كُنتُم بِهِۦ تُكَذِّبُونَ ﴿٢١﴾

[They will be told], "This is the Day of Judgement which you used to deny."

۞ ٱحۡشُرُواْ ٱلَّذِینَ ظَلَمُواْ وَأَزۡوَ ٰ⁠جَهُمۡ وَمَا كَانُواْ یَعۡبُدُونَ ﴿٢٢﴾

[The angels will be ordered], "Gather those who committed wrong, their kinds, and what they used to worship

مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ فَٱهۡدُوهُمۡ إِلَىٰ صِرَ ٰ⁠طِ ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿٢٣﴾

Other than Allah, and guide them to the path of Hellfire

وَقِفُوهُمۡۖ إِنَّهُم مَّسۡـُٔولُونَ ﴿٢٤﴾

And stop them; indeed, they are to be questioned."

مَا لَكُمْ لَا تَنَاصَرُونَ ﴿٢٥﴾

[They will be asked], "What is [wrong] with you? Why do you not help each other?"

بَلْ هُمُ الْيَوْمَ مُسْتَسْلِمُونَ ﴿٢٦﴾

But they, that Day, are in surrender.

وَأَقْبَلَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ يَتَسَاءَلُونَ ﴿٢٧﴾

And they will approach one another blaming each other.

قَالُوا إِنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ تَأْتُونَنَا عَنِ الْيَمِينِ ﴿٢٨﴾

They will say, "Indeed, you used to come at us from the right."

قَالُوا بَل لَّمْ تَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿٢٩﴾

The oppressors will say, "Rather, you [yourselves] were not believers,

وَمَا كَانَ لَنَا عَلَيْكُم مِّن سُلْطَانٍ ۖ بَلْ كُنتُمْ قَوْمًا طَاغِينَ ﴿٣٠﴾

And we had over you no authority, but you were a transgressing people.

فَحَقَّ عَلَيْنَا قَوْلُ رَبِّنَا ۖ إِنَّا لَذَائِقُونَ ﴿٣١﴾

So the word of our Lord has come into effect upon us; indeed, we will taste [punishment].

فَأَغْوَيْنَاكُمْ إِنَّا كُنَّا غَاوِينَ ﴿٣٢﴾

And we led you to deviation; indeed, we were deviators."

فَإِنَّهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ فِي الْعَذَابِ مُشْتَرِكُونَ ﴿٣٣﴾

So indeed they, that Day, will be sharing in the punishment.

إِنَّا كَذَٰلِكَ نَفْعَلُ بِالْمُجْرِمِينَ ﴿٣٤﴾

Indeed, that is how We deal with the criminals.

إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ ﴿٣٥﴾

Indeed they, when it was said to them, "There is no deity but Allah," were arrogant

وَيَقُولُونَ أَئِنَّا لَتَارِكُو آلِهَتِنَا لِشَاعِرٍ مَّجْنُونٍ ﴿٣٦﴾

And were saying, "Are we to leave our gods for a mad poet?"

بَلْ جَاءَ بِالْحَقِّ وَصَدَّقَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ ﴿٣٧﴾

Rather, the Prophet has come with the truth and confirmed the [previous] messengers.

إِنَّكُمْ لَذَائِقُو الْعَذَابِ الْأَلِيمِ ﴿٣٨﴾

Indeed, you [disbelievers] will be tasters of the painful punishment,

وَمَا تُجْزَوْنَ إِلَّا مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿٣٩﴾

And you will not be recompensed except for what you used to do -

إِلَّا عِبَادَ اللَّهِ الْمُخْلَصِينَ ﴿٤٠﴾

But not the chosen servants of Allah.

أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ رِزْقٌ مَّعْلُومٌ ﴿٤١﴾

Those will have a provision determined -

فَوَاكِهُ ۖ وَهُم مُّكْرَمُونَ ﴿٤٢﴾

Fruits; and they will be honored

فِي جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ ﴿٤٣﴾

In gardens of pleasure

عَلَىٰ سُرُرٍ مُّتَقَابِلِينَ ﴿٤٤﴾

On thrones facing one another.

يُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِكَأْسٍ مِّن مَّعِينٍ ﴿٤٥﴾

There will be circulated among them a cup [of wine] from a flowing spring,

بَيْضَاءَ لَذَّةٍ لِّلشَّارِبِينَ ﴿٤٦﴾

White and delicious to the drinkers;

لَا فِيهَا غَوْلٌ وَلَا هُمْ عَنْهَا يُنزَفُونَ ﴿٤٧﴾

No bad effect is there in it, nor from it will they be intoxicated.

وَعِندَهُمْ قَاصِرَاتُ الطَّرْفِ عِينٌ ﴿٤٨﴾

And with them will be women limiting [their] glances, with large, [beautiful] eyes,

كَأَنَّهُنَّ بَيْضٌ مَّكْنُونٌ ﴿٤٩﴾

As if they were [delicate] eggs, well-protected.

فَأَقْبَلَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ يَتَسَاءَلُونَ ﴿٥٠﴾

And they will approach one another, inquiring of each other.

قَالَ قَائِلٌ مِّنْهُمْ إِنِّي كَانَ لِي قَرِينٌ ﴿٥١﴾

A speaker among them will say, "Indeed, I had a companion [on earth]

یَقُولُ أَءِنَّكَ لَمِنَ ٱلۡمُصَدِّقِینَ ﴿٥٢﴾

Who would say, 'Are you indeed of those who believe

أَءِذَا مِتۡنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابࣰا وَعِظَـٰمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَدِینُونَ ﴿٥٣﴾

That when we have died and become dust and bones, we will indeed be recompensed?'"

قَالَ هَلۡ أَنتُم مُّطَّلِعُونَ ﴿٥٤﴾

He will say, "Would you [care to] look?"

فَٱطَّلَعَ فَرَءَاهُ فِی سَوَاۤءِ ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿٥٥﴾

And he will look and see him in the midst of the Hellfire.

قَالَ تَٱللَّهِ إِن كِدتَّ لَتُرۡدِینِ ﴿٥٦﴾

He will say, "By Allah, you almost ruined me.

وَلَوۡلَا نِعۡمَةُ رَبِّی لَكُنتُ مِنَ ٱلۡمُحۡضَرِینَ ﴿٥٧﴾

If not for the favor of my Lord, I would have been of those brought in [to Hell].

أَفَمَا نَحۡنُ بِمَیِّتِینَ ﴿٥٨﴾

Then, are we not to die

إِلَّا مَوۡتَتَنَا ٱلۡأُولَىٰ وَمَا نَحۡنُ بِمُعَذَّبِینَ ﴿٥٩﴾

Except for our first death, and we will not be punished?"

إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَهُوَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡعَظِیمُ ﴿٦٠﴾

Indeed, this is the great attainment.

لِمِثۡلِ هَـٰذَا فَلۡیَعۡمَلِ ٱلۡعَـٰمِلُونَ ﴿٦١﴾

For the like of this let the workers [on earth] work.

أَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ خَیۡرࣱ نُّزُلًا أَمۡ شَجَرَةُ ٱلزَّقُّومِ ﴿٦٢﴾

Is Paradise a better accommodation or the tree of zaqqum?

إِنَّا جَعَلۡنَـٰهَا فِتۡنَةࣰ لِّلظَّـٰلِمِینَ ﴿٦٣﴾

Indeed, We have made it a torment for the wrongdoers.

إِنَّهَا شَجَرَةࣱ تَخۡرُجُ فِیۤ أَصۡلِ ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿٦٤﴾

Indeed, it is a tree issuing from the bottom of the Hellfire,

طَلۡعُهَا كَأَنَّهُۥ رُءُوسُ ٱلشَّیَـٰطِینِ ﴿٦٥﴾

Its emerging fruit as if it was heads of the devils.

فَإِنَّهُمۡ لَـَٔاكِلُونَ مِنۡهَا فَمَالِـُٔونَ مِنۡهَا ٱلۡبُطُونَ ﴿٦٦﴾

And indeed, they will eat from it and fill with it their bellies.

ثُمَّ إِنَّ لَهُمۡ عَلَیۡهَا لَشَوۡبࣰا مِّنۡ حَمِیمࣲ ﴿٦٧﴾

Then indeed, they will have after it a mixture of scalding water.

ثُمَّ إِنَّ مَرۡجِعَهُمۡ لَإِلَى ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿٦٨﴾

Then indeed, their return will be to the Hellfire.

إِنَّهُمۡ أَلۡفَوۡاْ ءَابَاۤءَهُمۡ ضَاۤلِّینَ ﴿٦٩﴾

Indeed they found their fathers astray.

فَهُمۡ عَلَىٰۤ ءَاثَـٰرِهِمۡ یُهۡرَعُونَ ﴿٧٠﴾

So they hastened [to follow] in their footsteps.

وَلَقَدۡ ضَلَّ قَبۡلَهُمۡ أَكۡثَرُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِینَ ﴿٧١﴾

And there had already strayed before them most of the former peoples,

وَلَقَدۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا فِیهِم مُّنذِرِینَ ﴿٧٢﴾

And We had already sent among them warners.

فَٱنظُرۡ كَیۡفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلۡمُنذَرِینَ ﴿٧٣﴾

Then look how was the end of those who were warned -

إِلَّا عِبَادَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡمُخۡلَصِینَ ﴿٧٤﴾

But not the chosen servants of Allah.

وَلَقَدۡ نَادَىٰنَا نُوحࣱ فَلَنِعۡمَ ٱلۡمُجِیبُونَ ﴿٧٥﴾

And Noah had certainly called Us, and [We are] the best of responders.

وَنَجَّیۡنَـٰهُ وَأَهۡلَهُۥ مِنَ ٱلۡكَرۡبِ ٱلۡعَظِیمِ ﴿٧٦﴾

And We saved him and his family from the great affliction.

وَجَعَلۡنَا ذُرِّیَّتَهُۥ هُمُ ٱلۡبَاقِینَ ﴿٧٧﴾

And We made his descendants those remaining [on the earth]

وَتَرَكۡنَا عَلَیۡهِ فِی ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِینَ ﴿٧٨﴾

And left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:

سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَىٰ نُوحࣲ فِی ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ ﴿٧٩﴾

"Peace upon Noah among the worlds."

إِنَّا كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ نَجۡزِی ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِینَ ﴿٨٠﴾

Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

إِنَّهُۥ مِنۡ عِبَادِنَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِینَ ﴿٨١﴾

Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.

ثُمَّ أَغۡرَقۡنَا ٱلۡـَٔاخَرِینَ ﴿٨٢﴾

Then We drowned the disbelievers.

۞ وَإِنَّ مِن شِیعَتِهِۦ لَإِبۡرَ ٰ⁠هِیمَ ﴿٨٣﴾

And indeed, among his kind was Abraham,

إِذۡ جَاۤءَ رَبَّهُۥ بِقَلۡبࣲ سَلِیمٍ ﴿٨٤﴾

When he came to his Lord with a sound heart

إِذۡ قَالَ لِأَبِیهِ وَقَوۡمِهِۦ مَاذَا تَعۡبُدُونَ ﴿٨٥﴾

[And] when he said to his father and his people, "What do you worship?

أَىِٕفۡكًا ءَالِهَةࣰ دُونَ ٱللَّهِ تُرِیدُونَ ﴿٨٦﴾

Is it falsehood [as] gods other than Allah you desire?

فَمَا ظَنُّكُم بِرَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ ﴿٨٧﴾

Then what is your thought about the Lord of the worlds?"

فَنَظَرَ نَظۡرَةࣰ فِی ٱلنُّجُومِ ﴿٨٨﴾

And he cast a look at the stars

فَقَالَ إِنِّی سَقِیمࣱ ﴿٨٩﴾

And said, "Indeed, I am [about to be] ill."

فَتَوَلَّوۡاْ عَنۡهُ مُدۡبِرِینَ ﴿٩٠﴾

So they turned away from him, departing.

فَرَاغَ إِلَىٰۤ ءَالِهَتِهِمۡ فَقَالَ أَلَا تَأۡكُلُونَ ﴿٩١﴾

Then he turned to their gods and said, "Do you not eat?

مَا لَكُمۡ لَا تَنطِقُونَ ﴿٩٢﴾

What is [wrong] with you that you do not speak?"

فَرَاغَ عَلَیۡهِمۡ ضَرۡبَۢا بِٱلۡیَمِینِ ﴿٩٣﴾

And he turned upon them a blow with [his] right hand.

فَأَقۡبَلُوۤاْ إِلَیۡهِ یَزِفُّونَ ﴿٩٤﴾

Then the people came toward him, hastening.

قَالَ أَتَعۡبُدُونَ مَا تَنۡحِتُونَ ﴿٩٥﴾

He said, "Do you worship that which you [yourselves] carve,

وَٱللَّهُ خَلَقَكُمۡ وَمَا تَعۡمَلُونَ ﴿٩٦﴾

While Allah created you and that which you do?"

قَالُواْ ٱبۡنُواْ لَهُۥ بُنۡیَـٰنࣰا فَأَلۡقُوهُ فِی ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿٩٧﴾

They said, "Construct for him a furnace and throw him into the burning fire."

فَأَرَادُواْ بِهِۦ كَیۡدࣰا فَجَعَلۡنَـٰهُمُ ٱلۡأَسۡفَلِینَ ﴿٩٨﴾

And they intended for him a plan, but We made them the most debased.

وَقَالَ إِنِّی ذَاهِبٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّی سَیَهۡدِینِ ﴿٩٩﴾

And [then] he said, "Indeed, I will go to [where I am ordered by] my Lord; He will guide me.

رَبِّ هَبۡ لِی مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِینَ ﴿١٠٠﴾

My Lord, grant me [a child] from among the righteous."

فَبَشَّرۡنَـٰهُ بِغُلَـٰمٍ حَلِیمࣲ ﴿١٠١﴾

So We gave him good tidings of a forbearing boy.

فَلَمَّا بَلَغَ مَعَهُ ٱلسَّعۡیَ قَالَ یَـٰبُنَیَّ إِنِّیۤ أَرَىٰ فِی ٱلۡمَنَامِ أَنِّیۤ أَذۡبَحُكَ فَٱنظُرۡ مَاذَا تَرَىٰۚ قَالَ یَـٰۤأَبَتِ ٱفۡعَلۡ مَا تُؤۡمَرُ ۖ سَتَجِدُنِیۤ إِن شَاۤءَ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰبِرِینَ ﴿١٠٢﴾

And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, "O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think." He said, "O my father, do as you are commanded. You will find me, if Allah wills, of the steadfast."

فَلَمَّاۤ أَسۡلَمَا وَتَلَّهُۥ لِلۡجَبِینِ ﴿١٠٣﴾

And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead,

وَنَـٰدَیۡنَـٰهُ أَن یَـٰۤإِبۡرَ ٰ⁠هِیمُ ﴿١٠٤﴾

We called to him, "O Abraham,

قَدۡ صَدَّقۡتَ ٱلرُّءۡیَاۤۚ إِنَّا كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ نَجۡزِی ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِینَ ﴿١٠٥﴾

You have fulfilled the vision." Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَهُوَ ٱلۡبَلَـٰۤؤُاْ ٱلۡمُبِینُ ﴿١٠٦﴾

Indeed, this was the clear trial.

وَفَدَیۡنَـٰهُ بِذِبۡحٍ عَظِیمࣲ ﴿١٠٧﴾

And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice,

وَتَرَكۡنَا عَلَیۡهِ فِی ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِینَ ﴿١٠٨﴾

And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:

سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَىٰۤ إِبۡرَ ٰ⁠هِیمَ ﴿١٠٩﴾

"Peace upon Abraham."

كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ نَجۡزِی ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِینَ ﴿١١٠﴾

Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

إِنَّهُۥ مِنۡ عِبَادِنَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِینَ ﴿١١١﴾

Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.

وَبَشَّرۡنَـٰهُ بِإِسۡحَـٰقَ نَبِیࣰّا مِّنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِینَ ﴿١١٢﴾

And We gave him good tidings of Isaac, a prophet from among the righteous.

وَبَـٰرَكۡنَا عَلَیۡهِ وَعَلَىٰۤ إِسۡحَـٰقَۚ وَمِن ذُرِّیَّتِهِمَا مُحۡسِنࣱ وَظَالِمࣱ لِّنَفۡسِهِۦ مُبِینࣱ ﴿١١٣﴾

And We blessed him and Isaac. But among their descendants is the doer of good and the clearly unjust to himself.

وَلَقَدۡ مَنَنَّا عَلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ وَهَـٰرُونَ ﴿١١٤﴾

And We did certainly confer favor upon Moses and Aaron.

وَنَجَّیۡنَـٰهُمَا وَقَوۡمَهُمَا مِنَ ٱلۡكَرۡبِ ٱلۡعَظِیمِ ﴿١١٥﴾

And We saved them and their people from the great affliction,

وَنَصَرۡنَـٰهُمۡ فَكَانُواْ هُمُ ٱلۡغَـٰلِبِینَ ﴿١١٦﴾

And We supported them so it was they who overcame.

وَءَاتَیۡنَـٰهُمَا ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَبِینَ ﴿١١٧﴾

And We gave them the explicit Scripture,

وَهَدَیۡنَـٰهُمَا ٱلصِّرَ ٰ⁠طَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقِیمَ ﴿١١٨﴾

And We guided them on the straight path.

وَتَرَكۡنَا عَلَیۡهِمَا فِی ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِینَ ﴿١١٩﴾

And We left for them [favorable mention] among later generations:

سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ وَهَـٰرُونَ ﴿١٢٠﴾

"Peace upon Moses and Aaron."

إِنَّا كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ نَجۡزِی ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِینَ ﴿١٢١﴾

Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

إِنَّهُمَا مِنۡ عِبَادِنَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِینَ ﴿١٢٢﴾

Indeed, they were of Our believing servants.

وَإِنَّ إِلۡیَاسَ لَمِنَ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِینَ ﴿١٢٣﴾

And indeed, Elias was from among the messengers,

إِذۡ قَالَ لِقَوۡمِهِۦۤ أَلَا تَـتَّـقُونَ ﴿١٢٤﴾

When he said to his people, "Will you not fear Allah?

أَتَدۡعُونَ بَعۡلࣰا وَتَذَرُونَ أَحۡسَنَ ٱلۡخَـٰلِقِینَ ﴿١٢٥﴾

Do you call upon Ba'l and leave the best of creators -

ٱللَّهَ رَبَّكُمۡ وَرَبَّ ءَابَاۤىِٕكُمُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِینَ ﴿١٢٦﴾

Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers?"

فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَإِنَّهُمۡ لَمُحۡضَرُونَ ﴿١٢٧﴾

And they denied him, so indeed, they will be brought [for punishment],

إِلَّا عِبَادَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡمُخۡلَصِینَ ﴿١٢٨﴾

Except the chosen servants of Allah.

وَتَرَكۡنَا عَلَیۡهِ فِی ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِینَ ﴿١٢٩﴾

And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations:

سَلَـٰمٌ عَلَىٰۤ إِلۡ یَاسِینَ ﴿١٣٠﴾

"Peace upon Elias."

إِنَّا كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ نَجۡزِی ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِینَ ﴿١٣١﴾

Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.

إِنَّهُۥ مِنۡ عِبَادِنَا ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِینَ ﴿١٣٢﴾

Indeed, he was of Our believing servants.

وَإِنَّ لُوطࣰا لَّمِنَ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِینَ ﴿١٣٣﴾

And indeed, Lot was among the messengers.

إِذۡ نَجَّیۡنَـٰهُ وَأَهۡلَهُۥۤ أَجۡمَعِینَ ﴿١٣٤﴾

[So mention] when We saved him and his family, all,

إِلَّا عَجُوزࣰا فِی ٱلۡغَـٰبِرِینَ ﴿١٣٥﴾

Except his wife among those who remained [with the evildoers].

ثُمَّ دَمَّرۡنَا ٱلۡـَٔاخَرِینَ ﴿١٣٦﴾

Then We destroyed the others.

وَإِنَّكُمۡ لَتَمُرُّونَ عَلَیۡهِم مُّصۡبِحِینَ ﴿١٣٧﴾

And indeed, you pass by them in the morning

وَبِٱلَّیۡلِۚ أَفَلَا تَعۡقِلُونَ ﴿١٣٨﴾

And at night. Then will you not use reason?

وَإِنَّ یُونُسَ لَمِنَ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِینَ ﴿١٣٩﴾

And indeed, Jonah was among the messengers.

إِذۡ أَبَقَ إِلَى ٱلۡفُلۡكِ ٱلۡمَشۡحُونِ ﴿١٤٠﴾

[Mention] when he ran away to the laden ship.

فَسَاهَمَ فَكَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُدۡحَضِینَ ﴿١٤١﴾

And he drew lots and was among the losers.

فَٱلۡتَقَمَهُ ٱلۡحُوتُ وَهُوَ مُلِیمࣱ ﴿١٤٢﴾

Then the fish swallowed him, while he was blameworthy.

فَلَوۡلَاۤ أَنَّهُۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُسَبِّحِینَ ﴿١٤٣﴾

And had he not been of those who exalt Allah,

لَلَبِثَ فِی بَطۡنِهِۦۤ إِلَىٰ یَوۡمِ یُبۡعَثُونَ ﴿١٤٤﴾

He would have remained inside its belly until the Day they are resurrected.

۞ فَنَبَذۡنَـٰهُ بِٱلۡعَرَاۤءِ وَهُوَ سَقِیمࣱ ﴿١٤٥﴾

But We threw him onto the open shore while he was ill.

وَأَنۢبَتۡنَا عَلَیۡهِ شَجَرَةࣰ مِّن یَقۡطِینࣲ ﴿١٤٦﴾

And We caused to grow over him a gourd vine.

وَأَرۡسَلۡنَـٰهُ إِلَىٰ مِاْئَةِ أَلۡفٍ أَوۡ یَزِیدُونَ ﴿١٤٧﴾

And We sent him to [his people of] a hundred thousand or more.

فَـَٔامَنُواْ فَمَتَّعۡنَـٰهُمۡ إِلَىٰ حِینࣲ ﴿١٤٨﴾

And they believed, so We gave them enjoyment [of life] for a time.

فَٱسۡتَفۡتِهِمۡ أَلِرَبِّكَ ٱلۡبَنَاتُ وَلَهُمُ ٱلۡبَنُونَ ﴿١٤٩﴾

So inquire of them, [O Muhammad], "Does your Lord have daughters while they have sons?

أَمۡ خَلَقۡنَا ٱلۡمَلَـٰۤىِٕكَةَ إِنَـٰثࣰا وَهُمۡ شَـٰهِدُونَ ﴿١٥٠﴾

Or did We create the angels as females while they were witnesses?"

أَلَاۤ إِنَّهُم مِّنۡ إِفۡكِهِمۡ لَیَقُولُونَ ﴿١٥١﴾

Unquestionably, it is out of their [invented] falsehood that they say,

وَلَدَ ٱللَّهُ وَإِنَّهُمۡ لَكَـٰذِبُونَ ﴿١٥٢﴾

" Allah has begotten," and indeed, they are liars.

أَصۡطَفَى ٱلۡبَنَاتِ عَلَى ٱلۡبَنِینَ ﴿١٥٣﴾

Has He chosen daughters over sons?

مَا لَكُمۡ كَیۡفَ تَحۡكُمُونَ ﴿١٥٤﴾

What is [wrong] with you? How do you make judgement?

أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ ﴿١٥٥﴾

Then will you not be reminded?

أَمۡ لَكُمۡ سُلۡطَـٰنࣱ مُّبِینࣱ ﴿١٥٦﴾

Or do you have a clear authority?

فَأۡتُواْ بِكِتَـٰبِكُمۡ إِن كُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِینَ ﴿١٥٧﴾

Then produce your scripture, if you should be truthful.

وَجَعَلُواْ بَیۡنَهُۥ وَبَیۡنَ ٱلۡجِنَّةِ نَسَبࣰاۚ وَلَقَدۡ عَلِمَتِ ٱلۡجِنَّةُ إِنَّهُمۡ لَمُحۡضَرُونَ ﴿١٥٨﴾

And they have claimed between Him and the jinn a lineage, but the jinn have already known that they [who made such claims] will be brought to [punishment].

سُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱللَّهِ عَمَّا یَصِفُونَ ﴿١٥٩﴾

Exalted is Allah above what they describe,

إِلَّا عِبَادَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡمُخۡلَصِینَ ﴿١٦٠﴾

Except the chosen servants of Allah [who do not share in that sin].

فَإِنَّكُمۡ وَمَا تَعۡبُدُونَ ﴿١٦١﴾

So indeed, you [disbelievers] and whatever you worship,

مَاۤ أَنتُمۡ عَلَیۡهِ بِفَـٰتِنِینَ ﴿١٦٢﴾

You cannot tempt [anyone] away from Him

إِلَّا مَنۡ هُوَ صَالِ ٱلۡجَحِیمِ ﴿١٦٣﴾

Except he who is to [enter and] burn in the Hellfire.

وَمَا مِنَّاۤ إِلَّا لَهُۥ مَقَامࣱ مَّعۡلُومࣱ ﴿١٦٤﴾

[The angels say], "There is not among us any except that he has a known position.

وَإِنَّا لَنَحۡنُ ٱلصَّاۤفُّونَ ﴿١٦٥﴾

And indeed, we are those who line up [for prayer].

وَإِنَّا لَنَحۡنُ ٱلۡمُسَبِّحُونَ ﴿١٦٦﴾

And indeed, we are those who exalt Allah."

وَإِن كَانُواْ لَیَقُولُونَ ﴿١٦٧﴾

And indeed, the disbelievers used to say,

لَوۡ أَنَّ عِندَنَا ذِكۡرࣰا مِّنَ ٱلۡأَوَّلِینَ ﴿١٦٨﴾

"If we had a message from [those of] the former peoples,

لَكُنَّا عِبَادَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡمُخۡلَصِینَ ﴿١٦٩﴾

We would have been the chosen servants of Allah."

فَكَفَرُواْ بِهِۦۖ فَسَوۡفَ یَعۡلَمُونَ ﴿١٧٠﴾

But they disbelieved in it, so they are going to know.

وَلَقَدۡ سَبَقَتۡ كَلِمَتُنَا لِعِبَادِنَا ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِینَ ﴿١٧١﴾

And Our word has already preceded for Our servants, the messengers,

إِنَّهُمۡ لَهُمُ ٱلۡمَنصُورُونَ ﴿١٧٢﴾

[That] indeed, they would be those given victory

وَإِنَّ جُندَنَا لَهُمُ ٱلۡغَـٰلِبُونَ ﴿١٧٣﴾

And [that] indeed, Our soldiers will be those who overcome.

فَتَوَلَّ عَنۡهُمۡ حَتَّىٰ حِینࣲ ﴿١٧٤﴾

So, [O Muhammad], leave them for a time.

وَأَبۡصِرۡهُمۡ فَسَوۡفَ یُبۡصِرُونَ ﴿١٧٥﴾

And see [what will befall] them, for they are going to see.

أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا یَسۡتَعۡجِلُونَ ﴿١٧٦﴾

Then for Our punishment are they impatient?

فَإِذَا نَزَلَ بِسَاحَتِهِمۡ فَسَاۤءَ صَبَاحُ ٱلۡمُنذَرِینَ ﴿١٧٧﴾

But when it descends in their territory, then evil is the morning of those who were warned.

وَتَوَلَّ عَنۡهُمۡ حَتَّىٰ حِینࣲ ﴿١٧٨﴾

And leave them for a time.

وَأَبۡصِرۡ فَسَوۡفَ یُبۡصِرُونَ ﴿١٧٩﴾

And see, for they are going to see.

سُبۡحَـٰنَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ ٱلۡعِزَّةِ عَمَّا یَصِفُونَ ﴿١٨٠﴾

Exalted is your Lord, the Lord of might, above what they describe.

وَسَلَـٰمٌ عَلَى ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِینَ ﴿١٨١﴾

And peace upon the messengers.

وَٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ ﴿١٨٢﴾

And praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
