 #26. Shuaraa *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. Ta Sin Mim.

2. These are Verses of the Book that makes (things) clear

3. It may be thou frettest thy soul with grief that they do not
become Believers

4. If (such) were Our Will We could send down to them from the
sky a Sign to which they would bend their necks in humility

5. But there comes not to them a newly-revealed message from
(Allah) Most Gracious but they turn away therefrom

6. They have indeed rejected (the Message): so they will know
soon (enough) the truth of what they mocked at!

7. Do they not look at the earth how many noble things of all
kinds we have produced therein?

8. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe

9. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

10. Behold thy Lord called Moses: "Go to the people of iniquity

11. "The people of Pharaoh: will they not fear Allah?"

12. He said: "O my Lord! I do fear that they will charge me with

13. "My breast will be straitened and my speech may not go
(smoothly): so send unto Aaron

14. "And (further) they have a charge of crime against me; and I
fear they may slay me."

15. Allah said: "By no means! proceed then both of you with Our
Signs; We are with you and will listen (to your call)

16. "So go forth both of you to Pharaoh and say: `We have been
sent by the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds

17. " `Send thou with us the Children of Israel.'"

18. (Pharaoh) said: "Did we not cherish thee as a child among us
and did thou not stay in our midst many years of thy life?

19. "And thou didst a deed of thine which (thou knowest) thou
didst and thou art an ungrateful (wretch)!"

20. Moses: "I did it then when I was in error"

21. "So I fled from you (all) when I feared you; but my Lord has
(since) invested me with judgment (and wisdom) and appointed me
as one of the apostles

22. "And this is the favor with which thou dost reproach me that
thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel"

23. Pharaoh said: "And what is the `Lord and Cherisher of the

24. (Moses) said: "The Lord and Cherisher of the heavens and the
earth and all) between if ye want to be quite sure."

25. (Pharaoh) said to those around: "Do ye not listen (to what he

26. (Moses) said: "Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers from
the beginning!"

27. (Pharaoh) said: "Truly your apostle who has been sent to you
is a veritable madman!"

28. (Moses) said: "Lord of the East and the West and all between!
If ye only had sense!"

29. (Pharaoh) said: "If thou dost put forward any god other than
me I will certainly put thee in prison!"

30. (Moses) said: "Even if I showed you something clear (and)

31. (Pharaoh) said: "Show it then if thou tellest the truth!"

32. So (Moses) threw his rod and behold it was a serpent plain
(for all to see)!

33. And he drew out his hand and behold it was white to all

34. (Pharaoh) said to the Chiefs around him: "This is indeed a
sorcerer well-versed

35. "His plan is to get you out of your land by his sorcery; then
what is it ye counsel?"

36. They said: "Keep him and his brother in suspense (for a
while) and dispatch to the Cities heralds to collect

37. "And bring up to thee all (our) sorcerers well-versed."

38. So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a
day well-known

39. And the people were told: "Are ye (now) assembled?

40. "That we may follow the sorcerers (in religion) if they win?"

41. So when the sorcerers arrived they said to Pharaoh: "Of
course shall we have a (suitable) reward if we win?"

42. He said: "Yea (and more) for ye shall in that case be (raised
to posts) nearest (to my person)."

43. Moses said to them: "Throw ye that which ye are about to

44. So they threw their ropes and their rods and said: "By the
might of Pharaoh it is we who will certainly win!"

45. Then Moses threw his rod when behold it straightway swallows
up all the falsehoods which they fake!

46. Then did the sorcerers fall down prostrate in adoration

47. Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds"

48. "The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

49. Said (Pharaoh): "Believe ye in him before I give you
permission? Surely he is your leader who has taught you sorcery!
But soon shall ye know! "But sure I will cut off your hands and
your feet on opposite sides and I will cause you all to die on
the cross!"

50. They said: "No matter! for us we shall but return to our

51. "Only our desire is that our Lord will forgive us our faults
that we may become foremost among the Believers!"

52. By inspiration We told Moses: "Travel by night with My
servants; for surely ye shall be pursued."

53. Then Pharaoh sent heralds to (all) the Cities

54. (Saying): "These (Israelites) are but a small band

55. "And they are raging furiously against us

56. "But we are a multitude amply fore-warned."

57. So We expelled them from gardens springs

58. Treasures and every kind of honorable position

59. Thus it was but We made the Children of Israel inheritors of
such things

60. So they pursued them at sunrise

61. And when the two bodies saw each other the people of Moses
said: "We are sure to be overtaken."

62. (Moses said: "By no means! my Lord is with me! Soon will He
guide me!

63. Then We told Moses by inspiration: "Strike the sea with thy
rod." So it divided and each separate part become like the huge
firm mass of a mountain

64. And We made the other party approach thither

65. We delivered Moses and all who were with him

66. But We drowned the others

67. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe

68. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

69. And rehearse to them (something of) Abraham's story

70. Behold he said to his father and his people: "What worship

71. They said: "We worship idols and we remain constantly in
attendance on them."

72. He said: "Do they listen to you when ye call (on them)

73. "Or do you good or harm?"

74. They said: "Nay but we found our fathers doing thus (what we

75. He said: "Do ye then see whom ye have been worshipping"

76. "Ye and your fathers before you?"

77. "For they are enemies to me; not so the Lord and Cherisher of
the Worlds"

78. "Who created me and it is He Who guides me"

79. "Who gives me food and drink"

80. "And when I am ill it is He Who cures me"

81. "Who will cause me to die and then to live (again)"

82. "And Who I hope will forgive me my faults on the Day of

83. O my Lord! bestow wisdom on me and join me with the righteous

84. "Grant me honorable mention on the tongue of truth among the
latest (generations)

85. "Make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Bliss

86. "Forgive my father for that he is among those astray

87. "And let me not be in disgrace on the Day when (men) will be
raised up

88. The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail

89. "But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound

90. "To the righteous the Garden will be brought near

91. "And to those straying in Evil the Fire will be placed in
full view;

92. "And it shall be said to them: `Where are the (gods) ye

93. " `Besides Allah? Can they help you or help themselves?'

94. "Then they will be thrown headlong into the (Fire) they and
those straying in Evil

95. "And the whole hosts of Iblis together

96. "They will say there in their mutual bickerings

97. " `By Allah we were truly in an error manifest

98. " `When we held you as equals with the Lord of the Worlds

99. " `And our seducers were only those who were steeped in

100. " `Now then we have none to intercede (for us)

101. " `Nor a single friend to feel (for us)

102. " `Now if we only had a chance of return we shall truly be
of those who believe!' "

103. Verily in this is a Sign but most of them do not believe

104. And verily the Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

105. The people of Noah rejected the apostles

106. Behold their brother Noah said to them: "Will ye not fear

107. "I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust:

108. "So fear Allah and obey me

109. "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from
the Lord of the Worlds

110. "So fear Allah and obey me."

111. They said: "Shall we believe in thee when it is the meanest
that follow thee?"

112. He said: "And what do I know as to what they do?

113. "Their account is only with my Lord if ye could (but)

114. "I am not one to drive away those who believe

115. "I am sent only to warn plainly in public."

116. They said: "If thou desist not O Noah! thou shalt be stoned
(to death)."

117. He said: "O my Lord! truly my people have rejected me

118. "Judge thou then between me and them openly and deliver me
and those of the Believers who are with me."

119. So we delivered him and those with him in the Ark filled
(with all creatures)

120. Thereafter We drowned those who remained behind

121. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe

122. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

123. The `Ad (people) rejected the apostles

124. Behold their brother Hud said to them: "Will ye not fear

125. "I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust

126. "So fear Allah and obey me

127. "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from
the Lord of the Worlds

128. "Do ye build a landmark on every high place to amuse

129. "And do ye get for yourselves fine buildings in the hope of
living therein (forever)?

130. "And when ye exert your strong hand do ye do it like men of
absolute power?

131. "Now fear Allah and obey me

132. "Yea fear Him Who has bestowed on you freely all that ye

133. "Freely has He bestowed on you cattle and sons

134. And Gardens and Springs

135. "Truly I fear for you the Penalty of a Great Day."

136. They said: "It is the same to us whether thou admonish us or
be not among (our) Admonishers!

137. "This is no other than a customary device of the ancients

138. "And we are not the ones to receive Pains and Penalties!"

139. So they rejected him and We destroyed them verily in this is
a Sign: but ! most of them do not believe.

140. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

141. The Thamud (people) rejected the apostles.

145. "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from
the Lord of the Worlds

146. "Will ye be left secure in (the enjoyment of) all that ye
have here?

147. "Gardens and Springs

148. "And corn-fields and date-palms with spathes near breaking
with the weight of fruit)?

149. "And ye carve house out of (rocky) mountains with great

150. "But fear Allah and obey me

151. "And follow not the bidding of those who are extravagant?

152. "Who make mischief in the land and mend not (their ways)."

153. They said: "Thou art only the of those bewitched!

154. "Thou art no more than a mortal like us: then bring us a
Sign if thou tellest the truth!"

155. He said: "Here is a she-camel: she has a right of watering
and ye have a right of watering (severally) on a day appointed

156. "Touch her not with harm lest the Penalty of a Great Day
seize you."

157. But they hamstrung her: then did they become full of regrets

158. But the Penalty seized them. Verily in this is a Sign: but
most of them do not believe

159. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

160. The people of Lut rejected the apostles

161. Behold their brother Lut said to them: "Will ye not fear

162. "I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust

163. "So fear Allah and obey me

164. "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from
the Lord of the Worlds

165. "Of all the creatures in the world will ye approach males

166. "And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your
mates? Nay ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!"

167. They said: "If thou desist not O Lut! thou wilt assuredly be
cast out!"

168. He said: "I do detest your doings."

169. "O my Lord! deliver me and my family from such things as
they do!"

170. So We delivered him and his family all

171. Except an old woman who lingered behind

172. But the rest We destroyed utterly

173. We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was
the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!?"

174. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe

175. And verily thy Lord is He the Exalted in Might Most Merciful

176. The Companions of the Wood rejected the apostles

177. Behold Shuaib said to them: "Will ye not fear (Allah)?

178. "I am to you an apostle worthy of all trust

179. "So fear Allah and obey me

180. "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from
the Lord of the Worlds

181. "Give just measure and cause no loss (to others by fraud)

182. "And weigh with scales true and upright

183. "And withhold not things justly due to men nor do evil in
the land working mischief

184. "And fear Him Who created you and (Who created) the
generations before (you)

185. They said: "Thou art only one of those bewitched!

186. "Thou art no more than a mortal like us and indeed we think
thou art a liar!

187. "Now cause a piece of the sky to fall on us if thou art

188. He said: "My Lord knows best what ye do."

189. But they rejected him. Then the punishment of a day of
overshadowing gloom seized them and that was the Penalty of a
Great Day

190. Verily in that is a Sign: but most of them do not believe

191. And verily thy Lord is He. The Exalted in Might Most

192. Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds

193. With it came down the Spirit of Faith and Truth

194. To thy heart and mind that thou mayest admonish

195. In the perspicuous Arabic tongue

196. Without doubt it is (announced) in the mystic Books of
former peoples

197. Is it not a Sign to them that the learned of the Children of
Israel knew it (as true)?

198. Had We revealed it to any of the non-Arabs

199. And had he recited it to them they would not have believed
in it

200. Thus have We caused it to enter the hearts of the Sinners

201. They will not believe in it until they see the grievous

202. But the (Penalty) will come to them of a sudden while they
perceive it not;

203. Then they will say: "Shall we be respited?"

204. Do they then ask for Our Penalty to be hastened on?

205. Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few

206. Yet there comes to them at length the (Punishment) which
they were promised!

207. It will profit them not that they enjoyed (this life)!

208. Never did We destroy a population but had its warners

209. By way of reminder; and We never are unjust

210. No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation):

211. It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to
produce it)

212. Indeed they have been removed far from even (a chance of)
hearing it

213. So call not on any other god with Allah or thou wilt be
among those underthe Penalty

214. And admonish thy nearest kinsmen

215. And lower thy wing to the Believers who follow thee

216. Then if they disobey thee say: "I am free (of
responsibility) for what ye do!"

217. And put thy trust on the Exalted in Might the Merciful

218. Who seeth thee standing forth (in prayer)

219. And thy movements among those who prostrate themselves

220. For it is He Who heareth and knoweth all things

221. Shall I inform you (O people!) on whom it is that the evil
ones descend?

222. They descend on every lying wicked person

223. (Into whose ears) they pour hearsay vanities and most of
them are liars

224. And the Poets it is those straying in Evil who follow them:

225. Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?

226. And that they say what they practice not?

227. Except those who believe work righteousness engage much in
the remembrance of Allah and defend themselves only after they
are unjustly attacked. And soon will the unjust assailants know
what vicissitudes their affairs will take!
