1I swear by those who draw themselves out in ranks
2Then those who drive away with reproof,
3Then those who recite, being mindful,
4Most surely your Allah is One:
5The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and Lord of the easts.
6Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars,
7And (there is) a safeguard against every rebellious Shaitan.
8They cannot listen to the exalted assembly and they are thrown at from every side,
9Being driven off, and for them is a perpetual chastisement,
10Except him who snatches off but once, then there follows him a brightly shining flame.
11Then ask them whether they are stronger in creation or those (others) whom We have created. Surely We created them of firm clay.
12Nay! you wonder while they mock,
13And when they are reminded, they mind not,
14And when they see a sign they incite one another to scoff,
15And they say: This is nothing but clear magic:
16What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then certainly be raised,
17Or our fathers of yore?
18Say: Aye! and you shall be abject.
19So it shall only be a single cry, when lo! they shall see.
20And they shall say: O woe to us! this is the day of requital.
21This is the day of the judgment which you called a lie.
22Gather together those who were unjust and their associates, and what they used to worship
23Besides Allah, then lead them to the way to hell.
24And stop them, for they shall be questioned:
25What is the matter with you that you do not help each other?
26Nay! on that day they shall be submissive.
27And some of them shall advance towards others, questioning each other.
28They shall say: Surely you used to come to us from the right side.
29They shall say: Nay, you (yourselves) were not believers;
30And we had no authority over you, but you were an inordinate people;
31So the sentence of our Lord has come to pass against us: (now) we shall surely taste;
32So we led you astray, for we ourselves were erring.
33So they shall on that day be sharers in the chastisement one with another.
34Surely thus do We deal with the guilty.
35Surely they used to behave proudly when it was said to them: There is no god but Allah;
36And to say: What! shall we indeed give up our gods for the sake of a mad poet?
37Nay: he has come with the truth and verified the apostles.
38Most surely you will taste the painful punishment.
39And you shall not be rewarded except (for) what you did.
40Save the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
41For them is a known sustenance,
42Fruits, and they shall be highly honored,
43In gardens of pleasure,
44On thrones, facing each other.
45A bowl shall be made to go round them from water running out of springs,
46White, delicious to those who drink.
47There shall be no trouble in it, nor shall they be exhausted therewith.
48And with them shall be those who restrain the eyes, having beautiful eyes;
49As if they were eggs carefully protected.
50Then shall some of them advance to others, questioning each other.
51A speaker from among them shall say: Surely I had a comrade of mine,
52Who said: What! are you indeed of those who accept (the truth)?
53What! when we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then be certainly brought to judgment?
54He shall say: Will you look on?
55Then he looked down and saw him in the midst of hell.
56He shall say: By Allah! you had almost caused me to perish;
57And had it not been for the favor of my Lord, I would certainly have been among those brought up.
58Is it then that we are not going to die,
59Except our previous death? And we shall not be chastised?
60Most surely this is the mighty achievement.
61For the like of this then let the workers work.
62Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?
63Surely We have made it to be a trial to the unjust.
64Surely it is a tree that-grows in the bottom of the hell;
65Its produce is as it were the heads of the serpents.
66Then most surely they shall eat of it and fill (their) bellies with it.
67Then most surely they shall have after it to drink of a mixture prepared in boiling water.
68Then most surely their return shall be to hell.
69Surely they found their fathers going astray,
70So in their footsteps they are being hastened on.
71And certainly most of the ancients went astray before them,
72And certainly We sent among them warners.
73Then see how was the end of those warned,
74Except the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
75And Nuh did certainly call upon Us, and most excellent answerer of prayer are We.
76And We delivered him and his followers from the mighty distress.
77And We made his offspring the survivors.
78And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later generations.
79Peace and salutation to Nuh among the nations.
80Thus do We surely reward the doers of good.
81Surely he was of Our believing servants.
82Then We drowned the others
83And most surely Ibrahim followed his way.
84When he came to his Lord with a free heart,
85When he said to his father and his people: What is it that you worship?
86A lie-- gods besides Allah-- do you desire?
87What is then your idea about the Lord of the worlds?
88Then he looked at the stars, looking up once,
89Then he said: Surely I am sick (of your worshipping these).
90So they went away from him, turning back.
91Then he turned aside to their gods secretly and said: What! do you not eat?
92What is the matter with you that you do not speak?
93Then he turned against them secretly, smiting them with the right hand.
94So they (people) advanced towards him, hastening.
95Said he: What! do you worship what you hew out?
96And Allah has created you and what you make.
97They said: Build for him a furnace, then cast him into the burning fire.
98And they desired a war against him, but We brought them low.
99And he said: Surely I fly to my lord; He will guide me.
100My Lord! grant me of the doers of good deeds.
101So We gave him the good news of a boy, possessing forbearance.
102And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones.
103So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead,
104And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim!
105You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good:
106Most surely this is a manifest trial.
107And We ransomed him with a Feat sacrifice.
108And We perpetuated (praise) to him among the later generations.
109Peace be on Ibrahim.
110Thus do We reward the doers of good.
111Surely he was one of Our believing servants.
112And We gave him the good news of Ishaq, a prophet among the good ones.
113And We showered Our blessings on him and on Ishaq; and of their offspring are the doers of good, and (also) those who are clearly unjust to their own souls.
114And certainly We conferred a favor on Musa and Haroun.
115And We delivered them both and their people from the mighty distress.
116And We helped them, so they were the vanquishers.
117And We gave them both the Book that made (things) clear.
118And We guided them both on the right way.
119And We perpetuated (praise) to them among the later generations.
120Peace be on Musa and Haroun.
121Even thus do We reward the doers of good.
122Surely they were both of Our believing servants.
123And Ilyas was most surely of the apostles.
124When he said to his people: Do you not guard (against evil)?
125What! do you call upon Ba'l and forsake the best of the creators,
126Allah, your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore?
127But they called him a liar, therefore they shall most surely be brought up.
128But not the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
129And We perpetuated to him (praise) among the later generations.
130Peace be on Ilyas.
131Even thus do We reward the doers of good.
132Surely he was one of Our believing servants.
133And Lut was most surely of the apostles.
134When We delivered him and his followers, all--
135Except an old woman (who was) amongst those who tarried.
136Then We destroyed the others.
137And most surely you pass by them in the morning,
138And at night; do you not then understand?
139And Yunus was most surely of the apostles.
140When he ran away to a ship completely laden,
141So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast off.
142So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which he blamed himself
143But had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Us),
144He would certainly have tarried in its belly to the day when they are raised.
145Then We cast him on to the vacant surface of the earth while he was sick.
146And We caused to grow up for him a gourdplant.
147And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.
148And they believed, so We gave them provision till a time.
149Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons.
150Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses?
151Now surely it is of their own lie that they say:
152Allah has begotten; and most surely they are liars.
153Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons?
154What is the matter with you, how is it that you judge?
155Will you not then mind?
156Or have you a clear authority?
157Then bring your book, if you are truthful.
158And they assert a relationship between Him and the jinn; and certainly the jinn do know that they shall surely be brought up;
159Glory be to Allah (for freedom) from what they describe;
160But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones.
161So surely you and what you worship,
162Not against Him can you cause (any) to fall into trial,
163Save him who will go to hell.
164And there is none of us but has an assigned place,
165And most surely we are they who draw themselves out in ranks,
166And we are most surely they who declare the glory (of Allah).
167And surely they used to say:
168Had we a reminder from those of yore,
169We would certainly have been the servants of Allah-- the purified ones.
170But (now) they disbelieve in it, so they will come to know.
171And certainly Our word has already gone forth in respect of Our servants, the apostles:
172Most surely they shall be the assisted ones
173And most surely Our host alone shall be the victorious ones.
174Therefore turn away from them till a time,
175And (then) see them, so they too shall see.
176What! would they then hasten on Our chastisement?
177But when it shall descend in their court, evil shall then be the morning of the warned ones.
178And turn away from them till a time
179And (then) see, for they too shall see.
180Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of Honor, above what they describe.
181And peace be on the apostles.
182And all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
