Ayat [1-5] IN the name of the merciful and compassionate God.
Ayat [6-10] the Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between the two, and the Lord of the sunrises!'
Ayat [11-15] save such as snatches off a word, and there follows him a darting flame!
Ayat [16-20] and say, 'This is naught but obvious sorcery. What! when we are dead, and have become earth and bones, shall we then be raised? what! and our fathers of yore?'
Ayat [21-25] and they shall say, 'O, woe is us! this is the day of judgment, this is the day of decision, which ye did call a lie!' Gather ye together, ye who were unjust, with their mates and what they used to serve beside God, and guide them to the way of hell, and stop them; verily, they shall be questioned.
Ayat [26-30] 'Why do ye not help each other?' nay, on that day they shall resign themselves, and some shall draw near to others, to question each other, and they shall say, 'Verily, ye came to us from the right 1.' They shall say, 'Nay, ye were not believers, nor had we any authority over you; nay, ye were an outrageous people.
Ayat [31-35] And the sentence of our Lord shall be due for us; verily, we shall surely taste thereof; we did seduce you--verily, we were erring too!' therefore, verily, on that day they shall share the torment: thus it is that we will do with the sinners.
Ayat [36-40] What! shall we leave our gods for an infatuated poet?' Nay, he came with the truth, and verified the apostles; verily, ye are going to taste of grievous woe, nor shall ye be rewarded save for that which ye have done!
Ayat [41-45] these shall have a stated provision of fruits, and they shall be honoured in the gardens of pleasure, upon couches facing each other 2; they shall be served all round with a cup from a spring,
Ayat [46-50] white and delicious to those who drink, wherein is no insidious spirit, nor shall they
Ayat [51-55] who used to say, "Art thou verily of those who credit? What! when we are dead, and have become earth and bones, shall we be surely judged?"' He will say, 'Are ye looking down?' and he shall look down and see him in the midst of hell. He shall say, 'By God, thou didst nearly ruin me!
Ayat [56-60] And had it not been for the favour of my Lord, I should have been among the arraigned.'--'What! shall we not die save our first death? and shall we not be tormented?--Verily, this is mighty bliss! for the like of this then let the workers work.'
Ayat [61-65] Is that better as an entertainment, or the tree of Ez ZaqqÃ»m 1? Verily, we have made it a trial to the unjust 2. Verily, it is a tree that comes forth from the bottom of hell; its spathe is as it were the heads of devils; verily, they shall eat therefrom, and fill their bellies therefrom.
Ayat [66-70] Then shall they have upon it a mixture of boiling water; then, verily, their return shall be to hell.
Ayat [71-75] and we had sent warners amongst them. Behold, then, what was the end of those who were warned, save God's sincere servants!
Ayat [76-80] and we made his seed to be the survivors; and we left for him amongst posterity 'peace upon Noah in the worlds; verily; thus do we reward those who do well; verily, he was of our believing servants.'
Ayat [81-85] Then we drowned the others.
Ayat [86-90] What then is your thought respecting the Lord of the worlds?'
Ayat [91-95] What ails you that ye will not speak?' And he went aside to them smiting with the right hand.
Ayat [96-100] Said they, 'Build for him a pyre, and throw him into the flaming hell!' They desired to plot against him, but we made them inferior. Said he, 'Verily, I am going to my Lord, He will guide me. My Lord! grant me (a son), one of the
Ayat [101-105] And when he reached the age to work with him, he said, 'O my boy! verily, I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice thee 1, look then what thou seest right.'
Ayat [106-110] thou hast verified the vision; verily, thus do we reward those who do well. This is surely an obvious trial.' And we ransomed him with a mighty victim; and we left for him amongst posterity, 'Peace upon Abraham;
Ayat [111-115] thus do we reward those who do well; verily, he was of our servants who believe!' And we gave him glad tidings of Isaac, a prophet among the righteous; and we blessed him and Isaac;--of their seed is one who does well, and one who obviously wrongs himself.
Ayat [116-120] We saved them and their people from mighty trouble, and we helped them and they had the upper hand; and we gave them both the perspicuous Book; and we guided them to the right way; and we left for them amongst posterity,
Ayat [121-125] 'Peace upon Moses and Aaron; verily, thus do we reward those who do well; verily, they were both of our servants who believe!'
Ayat [126-130] do ye call upon Baal and leave the best of Creators, God your Lord and the Lord of your fathers of yore?'
Ayat [131-135] Peace upon ElyÃ¢sÃ®n 2; verily, thus do we reward those who do well; verily, he was of our servants who believe!'
Ayat [136-140] except an old woman amongst those who lingered; then we destroyed the others; verily, ye pass by them in the morning and at night; have ye then no sense?
Ayat [141-145] when he ran away 3 into the laden ship; and he cast lots and was of those who lost; and a fish swallowed him, for he was to be blamed; and had it not been that he was of those who celebrated
Ayat [146-150] But we cast him on to the barren shore; and he was sick; and we made to grow over him a gourd tree; and we sent him to a hundred thousand or more, and they believed; and we gave them enjoyment for a season.
Ayat [151-155] or have we created the angels females while they were witnesses?' is it not of their lie that they say, 'God has begotten?' verily, they are liars.
Ayat [156-160] will ye not be mindful, or have ye obvious authority? then bring your Book if ye do speak the truth.
Ayat [161-165] save God's sincere servants.
Ayat [166-170] verily, we are ranged, and, verily, we celebrate His praises 3.'
Ayat [171-175] But they misbelieved in it 4; but soon shall they know.
Ayat [176-180] and look upon them, for soon they too shall look.Ayat [181-185] Celebrated be the praises of thy Lord, the Lord of glory, above what they attribute! and peace be upon the apostles and praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds!
