In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Allah testifies that your God is one God and that shaitans do not have and excess to the exalted assembly of angels
1 By those who range themselves in ranks. 4030 4031
2 And so are strong in repelling (evil) 4032
3 And thus proclaim the message (of Allah)!
4 Verily verily your Allah is One! 4033
5 Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them and Lord of every point at the rising of the sun! 4034
6 We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars 4035 4036
7 (For beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious evil spirits. 4037
8 (So) they should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly but be cast away from every side. 4038
9 Repulsed for they are under a perpetual penalty.
10 Except such as snatch away something by stealth and they are pursued by a flaming fire of piercing brightness. 4039
11 Just ask their opinion: are they the more difficult to create or the (other) beings We have created? Them have We created out of a sticky clay! 4040 4041
Life in the Hereafter and the Day of Judgement are real
12 Truly dost thou marvel while they ridicule 4042
13 And when they are admonished pay no heed
14 And when they see a Sign turn it to mockery
15 And say "This is nothing but evident sorcery!
16 "What! when we die and become dust and bones shall we (then) be raised up (again)?
17 "And also our fathers of old?" 4043
18 Say thou: "Yea and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)." 4044
19 Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold they will begin to see! 4045 4056
20 They will say "Ah! woe to us! This is the Day of Judgement!"
21 (A voice will say) "This is the Day of Sorting Out whose truth ye (once) denied!" 4047
A scene from the Day of Judgement and a treatment for the wrongdoers and A dialogue between the followers and the leaders who mislead them
22 -Bring ye up" it shall be said "The wrongdoers and their wives and the things they worshipped 4048
23 "Besides Allah and lead them to the Way to the (Fierce) Fire!
24 "But stop them for they must be asked: 4049
25 " `What is the matter with you that ye help not each other?' " 4050
26 Nay but that day they shall submit (to Judgment); 4051
27 And they will turn to one another and question one another.
28 They will say: "It was ye who used to come to us from the right hand (of power and authority)!" 4052
29 They will reply: "Nay ye yourselves had no faith! 4053
30 "Nor had we any authority over you. Nay it was ye who were a people in obstinate rebellion!
31 "So now has been proved true against us the Word of our Lord that we shall indeed (have to) taste (the punishment of our sins): 4054
32 "We led you astray: for truly we were ourselves astray." 4055
33 Truly that day they will (all) share in the Penalty.
34 Verily that is how We shall deal with Sinners.
35 For they when they were told that there is no god except Allah would puff themselves up with Pride. 4056
36 And say: "What! shall we give up our gods for the sake of a Poet possessed?" 4057
37 Nay! He has come with the (very) Truth and he confirms (the Message of) the apostles (before Him). 4058
38 Ye shall indeed taste of the Grievous Penalty
39 But it will be no more than the retribution of (the Evil) that ye have wrought 4059
A scene from the scenes of Paradise and And example of conversation from a resident of Paradise
40 But the sincere (and devoted) servants of Allah
41 For them is a Sustenance Determined 4060 4061
42 Fruits (Delights) and they (shall enjoy) honor and dignity. 4062
43 In Gardens of Felicity.
44 Facing each other on Thrones (of dignity):
45 Round will be passed to them a Cup from a clear-flowing fountain
46 Crystal-white of a taste delicious to those who drink (thereof)
47 Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom. 4063
48 And beside them will be chaste women; restraining their glances with big eyes (of wonder and beauty). 4064
49 As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded. 4065
50 Then they will turn to one another and question one another. 4066
51 One of them will start the talk and say: "I had an intimate companion (on the earth) 4067
52 "Who used to say `What! art thou amongst those who bear witness to the truth (of the Message)?
53 " `When we die and become dust and bones shall we indeed receive rewards and punishments?' "
54 (A voice) said: "Would ye like to look down?"
55 He looked down and saw him in the midst of the Fire. 4068
56 He said: "By Allah! thou wast little short of bringing me to perdition!
57 "Had it not been for the Grace of my Lord I should certainly have been among those brought (there)! 4069
58 "Is it (the case) that we shall not die
59 "Except our first death and that we shall not be punished?" 4070
60 Verily this is the supreme achievement! 4071
61 For the like of this let all strive who wish to strive.
A scene from the scenes of Hell
62 Is that the better entertainment or the Tree of Zaqqum? 4072
63 For We have truly made it (as) a trial for the wrongdoers. 4073
64 For it is a tree that springs out of the bottom of Hell Fire:
65 The shoots of its fruit-stalks are like the heads of devils:
66 Truly they will eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith. 4074
67 Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water.
68 Then shall their return be to the (Blazing) Fire. 4075
69 Truly they found their fathers on the wrong Path;
70 So they (too) were rushed down on their footsteps! 4076
71 And truly before them many of the ancients went astray
72 But We sent aforetime among them (apostles) to admonish them 4077
73 Then see what was the end of those who were admonished (but heeded not) 4078
74 Except the sincere (and devoted) servants of Allah. 4079
Prophet Nuh prayed and Allah respond to his prayers
75 (In the days of old) Noah cried to Us and We are the Best to hear prayer. 4080
76 And We delivered him and his people from the Great Calamity. 4081
77 And made his progeny to endure (on this earth); 4082
78 And We left (this blessing) for him among generations to come in later times: 4083
79 "Peace and salutation to Noah among the nations!" 4084
80 Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
81 For he was one of Our believing Servants.
82 Then the rest We overwhelmed in the Flood.
Story of Prophet Ibrahim, "The Friend of Allah"
83 Verily among those who followed his Way was Abraham. 4085
84 Behold He approached his Lord with a sound heart. 4086
85 Behold he said to his father and to his people "What is that which ye worship?
86 "Is it a Falsehood gods other than Allah that ye desire? 4087
87 "Then what is your idea about the Lord of the Worlds?" 4088
88 Then did he cast a glance at the stars.
89 And he said "I am indeed sick (at heart)!" 4089
90 So they turned away from him and departed.
91 Then did he turn to their gods and said "Will ye not eat (of the offerings before you)?...
92 "What is the matter with you that ye speak not (intelligently)?"
93 Then did he turn upon them striking (them) with the right hand. 4090 4091
94 Then came (the worshippers) with hurried steps and faced (him).
95 He said: "Worship ye that which ye have (yourselves) carved? 4092
96 "But Allah has created you and your handiwork!"
97 They said: "Build him a furnace and throw him into the blazing fire!" 4093
98 (This failing) they then sought a stratagem against him but We made them the ones most humiliated! 4094
Prophet Ibrahim was asked to offer his only son in sacrifice as a test and he fulfilled it
99 He said: "I will go to my Lord! He will surely guide me! 4095
100 "O my Lord! grant me a righteous (son)!"
101 So We gave him the good news of a boy ready to suffer and forbear. 4096 4097
102 Then when (the son) reached (the age of) (serious) work with him he said: "O my son! I see in vision that I offer thee in sacrifice: now see what is thy view!" (The son) said: "O my father! do as thou art commanded: thou will find me if Allah so wills one practicing Patience and Constancy!" 4098 4099
103 So when they had both submitted their wills (to Allah) and He had laid Him prostrate on his forehead (for sacrifice) 4100 4101
104 We called out to him "O Abraham! 4102
105 "Thou hast already fulfilled the vision!" thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
106 For this was obviously a trial
107 And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice: 4103
108 And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times: 4104
109 "Peace and salutation to Abraham!"
110 Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
111 For he was one of Our believing Servants.
112 And We gave him the good news of Isaac a prophet one of the Righteous. 4105
113 We blessed him and Isaac: but of their progeny are (some) that do right and (some) that obviously do wrong to their own souls. 4106
Allah bestowed His favors on Prophets Musa and Haroon
114 Again (of old) We bestowed Our favor on Moses and Aaron. 4107
115 And We delivered them and their people from (their) Great Calamity; 4108
116 And We helped them so they overcame (their troubles); 4109
117 And We gave them the Book which helps to make things clear; 4110
118 And We guided them to the Straight Way.
119 And We left (this blessing) for them among generations (to come) in later times: 4111
120 "Peace and salutation to Moses and Aaron!"
121 Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
122 For they were two of Our believing Servants.
Ilyas (Elias) was one of the Rasools of Allah
123 So also was Elias among those sent (by us). 4112
124 Behold he said to his people "Will ye not fear (Allah)?
125 "Will ye call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators 4113
126 "Allah your Lord and Cherisher and the Lord and Cherisher of your fathers of old?"
127 But they rejected him and they will certainly be called up (for punishment) 4114
128 Except the sincere and devoted Servants of Allah (among them).
129 And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times: 4115
130 "Peace and salutation to such as Elias!"
Lut was also a Rasool of Allah
131 Thus indeed do We reward those who do right.
132 For He was one of Our believing Servants.
133 So also was Lut among those sent (by us). 4116
134 Behold We delivered him and his adherents all
135 Except an old woman who was among those who lagged behind: 4117
136 Then We destroyed the rest.
137 Verily ye pass by their (sites) by day 4118
138 And by night: will ye not understand?
Story of Prophet Yunus (Jonah)
139 So also was Jonah among those sent (by us). 4119
140 When he ran away (like slave from captivity) to the ship (fully) laden 4120
141 He (agreed to) cast lots and he was condemned: 4121
142 Then the big Fish did swallow him and he had done acts worthy of blame. 4122 4123
143 Had it not been that he (repented and) glorified Allah 4124
144 He would certainly have remained inside the Fish till the Day of Resurrection. 4125
145 But We cast him forth on the naked shore in a state of sickness 4126
146 And We caused to grow over him a spreading plant of the Gourd kind
147 And We sent him (on a mission) to a hundred thousand (men) or more. 4127
148 And they believed; so We permitted them to enjoy (their life) for a while. 4128
Mushrik's claim of Angels being daughters of Allah and Jinns having blood relations with Allah are utterly false
149 Now ask them their opinion: is it that thy Lord has (only) daughters and they have sons? 4129
150 Or that We created the angels female and they are witnesses (thereto)?
151 Is it not that they say from their own invention
152 "Allah has begotten children"? But they are liars! 4130
153 Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons? 4131
154 What is the matter with you? How judge ye?
155 Will ye not then receive admonition?
156 Or have ye an authority manifest?
157 Then bring ye your Book (of authority) if ye be truthful!
158 And they have invented a blood-relationship between Him and the Jinns: but the Jinns know (quite well) that they have indeed to appear (before His judgment-seat)! 4132
159 Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the things they ascribe (to Him)!
160 Not (so do) the servants of Allah sincere and devoted. 4133
161 For verily neither ye nor those ye worship
162 Can lead (any) into temptation concerning Allah 4134
163 Except such as are (themselves) going to the blazing Fire!
164 (Those ranged in ranks say): "Not one of us but has a place appointed 4135
165 "And we are verily ranged in ranks (for service):
166 "And we are verily those who declare (Allah's) glory!"
Allah has promised to help His Rasools and His devotees
167 And there were those who said 4136
168 "If only we had had before us a message from those of old.
169 "We should certainly have been servants of Allah sincere (and devoted)!" 4137
170 But (now that the Qur'an has come) they reject it: but soon will they know! 4138
171 Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to Our Servants sent (by Us)
172 That they would certainly be assisted
173 And that Our forces they surely must conquer. 4139
174 So turn thou away from them for a little while 4140
175 And watch them (how they fare) and they soon shall see (how thou farest)! 4141
176 Do they wish (indeed) to hurry on Our Punishment? 4142
177 But when it descends into the open space before them evil will be the morning for those who were warned (and heeded not)! 4143
178 So turn thou away from them for a little while 4144
179 And watch (how they fare) and they soon shall see (how thou farest)!
180 Glory to thy Lord the Lord of Honor and Power! (He is free) from what they ascribe (to Him)! 4145
181 And Peace on the Apostles!
182 And praise to Allah the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds.
