بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1.

حمٓ 

Ha Mim.

2.

وَٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ ٱلۡمُبِينِ 

By the Book that makes things clear --

3.

إِنَّا جَعَلۡنَـٰهُ قُرۡءَٲنًا عَرَبِيًّ۬ا لَّعَلَّڪُمۡ تَعۡقِلُونَ 

We have made it a Qur'án in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand (and learn wisdom).

4.

وَإِنَّهُ ۥ فِىٓ أُمِّ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ لَدَيۡنَا لَعَلِىٌّ حَكِيمٌ 

And verily, it is in the Mother of the Book, in Our Presence, high (in dignity), full of wisdom.

5.

أَفَنَضۡرِبُ عَنكُمُ ٱلذِّڪۡرَ صَفۡحًا أَن ڪُنتُمۡ قَوۡمً۬ا مُّسۡرِفِينَ 

Shall We then take away the Message from you and repel (you), for that ye are a people transgressing beyond bounds?

6.

وَكَمۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مِن نَّبِىٍّ۬ فِى ٱلۡأَوَّلِينَ 

But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old?

7.

وَمَا يَأۡتِيهِم مِّن نَّبِىٍّ إِلَّا كَانُواْ بِهِۦ يَسۡتَہۡزِءُونَ 

And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him.

8.

فَأَهۡلَكۡنَآ أَشَدَّ مِنۡہُم بَطۡشً۬ا وَمَضَىٰ مَثَلُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِينَ 

So We destroyed (them) -- stronger in power than these -- and (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old.

9.

وَلَٮِٕن سَأَلۡتَهُم مَّنۡ خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ

If thou wert to question them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?'

لَيَقُولُنَّ خَلَقَهُنَّ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ 

They would be sure to reply, 'They were created by (Him), the Exalted in Power, Full of knowledge' --

10.

ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ لَڪُمُ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ مَهۡدً۬اوَجَعَلَ لَكُمۡ فِيہَا سُبُلاً۬ لَّعَلَّكُمۡ تَهۡتَدُونَ 

(Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way);

11.

وَٱلَّذِى نَزَّلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءَۢ بِقَدَرٍ۬فَأَنشَرۡنَا بِهِۦ بَلۡدَةً۬ مَّيۡتً۬ا‌ۚ

That sends down (from time to time) rain from the sky in due measure; and We raise to life therewith a land that is dead;

كَذَٲلِكَ تُخۡرَجُونَ   

even so will ye be raised (from the dead) --

12.

وَٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلۡأَزۡوَٲجَ كُلَّهَا

That has created pairs in all things,

وَجَعَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلۡفُلۡكِ وَٱلۡأَنۡعَـٰمِ مَا تَرۡكَبُونَ   

and has made for you ships and cattle on which ye ride,

13.

لِتَسۡتَوُ ۥاْ عَلَىٰ ظُهُورِهِۦثُمَّ تَذۡكُرُواْ نِعۡمَةَ رَبِّكُمۡ إِذَا ٱسۡتَوَيۡتُمۡ عَلَيۡهِ وَتَقُولُواْ

In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favor of your Lord, and say,

سُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱلَّذِى سَخَّرَ لَنَا هَـٰذَا وَمَا ڪُنَّا لَهُ ۥ مُقۡرِنِينَ   

"Glory to Him Who has subjected these to Our (use), for We could never have accomplished this (by ourselves).

14.

وَإِنَّآ إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا لَمُنقَلِبُونَ 

"And to Our Lord, surely, Must We turn back!"

15.

وَجَعَلُواْ لَهُ ۥ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِۦ جُزۡءًا‌ۚ

Yet they attribute to some of His servants a share with Him (in His godhead)!

إِنَّ ٱلۡإِنسَـٰنَ لَكَفُورٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ 

Truly is man a blasphemous ingrate avowed!

16.

أَمِ ٱتَّخَذَ مِمَّا يَخۡلُقُ بَنَاتٍ۬ وَأَصۡفَٮٰكُم بِٱلۡبَنِينَ   

What! Has He taken Daughters out of what He Himself creates, and granted to you sons for choice?

17.

وَإِذَا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُم بِمَا ضَرَبَ لِلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ مَثَلاً۬ ظَلَّ وَجۡهُهُ ۥ مُسۡوَدًّ۬ا وَهُوَ كَظِيمٌ   

When news is brought to one of them of (the birth of) what he sets up as a likeness to (Allah) Most Gracious, his face darkens, and he is filled with inward grief!

18.

أَوَمَن يُنَشَّؤُاْ فِى ٱلۡحِلۡيَةِ وَهُوَ فِى ٱلۡخِصَامِ غَيۡرُ مُبِينٍ۬ 

Is then one brought up among trinkets, and unable to give a clear account in a dispute (to be associated with Allah)?

19.

وَجَعَلُواْ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ هُمۡ عِبَـٰدُ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ إِنَـٰثًا‌ۚ

And they make into females angels who themselves serve Allah.

أَشَهِدُواْ خَلۡقَهُمۡ‌ۚ

Did they witness their creation?

سَتُكۡتَبُ شَهَـٰدَتُہُمۡ وَيُسۡـَٔلُونَ   

Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be called to account!

20.

وَقَالُواْ لَوۡ شَآءَ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنُ مَا عَبَدۡنَـٰهُم‌ۗ

("Ah!") they say, "If it had been the will of (Allah) Most Gracious, We should not have worshipped such (deities)!"

مَّا لَهُم بِذَٲلِكَ مِنۡ عِلۡمٍ‌ۖ

of that they have no knowledge!

إِنۡ هُمۡ إِلَّا يَخۡرُصُونَ 

They Do nothing but lie!

21.

أَمۡ ءَاتَيۡنَـٰهُمۡ ڪِتَـٰبً۬ا مِّن قَبۡلِهِۦ فَهُم بِهِۦ مُسۡتَمۡسِكُونَ   

What! have We given them a Book before this, to which they are holding fast?

22.

بَلۡ قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا وَجَدۡنَآ ءَابَآءَنَا عَلَىٰٓ أُمَّةٍ۬ وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰٓ ءَاثَـٰرِهِم مُّهۡتَدُونَ   

Nay!

they say: "We found Our fathers following a certain religion, and We do guide ourselves by their footsteps."

23.

وَكَذَٲلِكَ مَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مِن قَبۡلِكَ فِى قَرۡيَةٍ۬ مِّن نَّذِيرٍإِلَّا قَالَ مُتۡرَفُوهَآ

Just in the same way, whenever We sent a Warner before thee to any people, the wealthy ones among them said:

إِنَّا وَجَدۡنَآ ءَابَآءَنَا عَلَىٰٓ أُمَّةٍ۬ وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰٓ ءَاثَـٰرِهِم مُّقۡتَدُونَ   

"We found Our fathers following a certain religion, and We will certainly follow in their footsteps."

24.

قَـٰلَ أَوَلَوۡ جِئۡتُكُم بِأَهۡدَىٰ مِمَّا وَجَدتُّمۡ عَلَيۡهِ ءَابَآءَكُمۡ‌ۖ

He said: "What! even if I brought you better guidance than that which ye found your fathers following?"

قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا بِمَآ أُرۡسِلۡتُم بِهِۦ كَـٰفِرُونَ   

They said: "For us, We deny that ye (prophets) are sent (on a mission at all)."

25.

فَٱنتَقَمۡنَا مِنۡہُمۡ‌ۖ

So We exacted retribution from them:

فَٱنظُرۡ كَيۡفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلۡمُكَذِّبِينَ   

now see what was the end of those who rejected (Truth)!

26.

وَإِذۡ قَالَ إِبۡرَٲهِيمُ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوۡمِهِۦۤ

Behold! Abraham said to his father and his people:

إِنَّنِى بَرَآءٌ۬ مِّمَّا تَعۡبُدُونَ   

"I do indeed clear myself of what ye worship:

27.

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِى فَطَرَنِى فَإِنَّهُ ۥ سَيَہۡدِينِ 

"(I worship) only Him Who made me, and He will certainly guide me."

28.

وَجَعَلَهَا كَلِمَةَۢ بَاقِيَةً۬ فِى عَقِبِهِۦ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ 

And he left it as a Word to endure among those who came after him, that they may turn back (to Allah).

29.

بَلۡ مَتَّعۡتُ هَـٰٓؤُلَآءِ وَءَابَآءَهُمۡ حَتَّىٰ جَآءَهُمُ ٱلۡحَقُّ وَرَسُولٌ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬ 

Yea, I have given the good things of this life to these (men) and their fathers, until the Truth has come to them, and a Messenger making things clear.

30.

وَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلۡحَقُّ قَالُواْ هَـٰذَا سِحۡرٌ۬ وَإِنَّا بِهِۦ كَـٰفِرُونَ   

But when the Truth came to them, they said:

"This is sorcery, and We do reject it."

31.

وَقَالُواْ لَوۡلَا نُزِّلَ هَـٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ عَلَىٰ رَجُلٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡقَرۡيَتَيۡنِ عَظِيمٍ 

Also, they say:

"Why is not this Qur'án sent down to some leading man in either of the two (Chief) cities?"

32.

أَهُمۡ يَقۡسِمُونَ رَحۡمَتَ رَبِّكَ‌ۚ

Is it they who would portion out the Mercy of thy Lord?

نَحۡنُ قَسَمۡنَا بَيۡنَہُم مَّعِيشَتَہُمۡ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا‌ۚ

It is We Who portion out between them their livelihood in the life of this world:

وَرَفَعۡنَا بَعۡضَہُمۡ فَوۡقَ بَعۡضٍ۬ دَرَجَـٰتٍ۬ لِّيَتَّخِذَ بَعۡضُہُم بَعۡضً۬ا سُخۡرِيًّ۬ا‌ۗ

and We raise some of them above others in ranks, so that some may command work from others.

وَرَحۡمَتُ رَبِّكَ خَيۡرٌ۬ مِّمَّا يَجۡمَعُونَ   

But the Mercy of thy Lord is better than the (wealth) which they amass.

33.

وَلَوۡلَآ أَن يَكُونَ ٱلنَّاسُ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ لَّجَعَلۡنَا لِمَن يَكۡفُرُ بِٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ

لِبُيُوتِہِمۡ سُقُفً۬ا مِّن فِضَّةٍ۬ وَمَعَارِجَ عَلَيۡہَا يَظۡهَرُونَ  

And were it not that (all) men might become of one (evil) way of life, We would provide, for everyone that blasphemes against (Allah) Most Gracious, silver roofs for their houses and (silver) stair-ways on which to go up.

34.

وَلِبُيُوتِہِمۡ أَبۡوَٲبً۬ا وَسُرُرًا عَلَيۡہَا يَتَّكِـُٔونَ   

And (silver) doors to their houses, and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline,

35.

وَزُخۡرُفً۬ا‌ۚ

And also adornments of gold.

وَإِن ڪُلُّ ذَٲلِكَ لَمَّا مَتَـٰعُ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا‌ۚ

But all this were nothing but conveniences of the present life:

وَٱلۡأَخِرَةُ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلۡمُتَّقِينَ 

the Hereafter, in the sight of thy Lord, is for the Righteous.

36.

وَمَن يَعۡشُ عَن ذِكۡرِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ نُقَيِّضۡ لَهُ ۥ شَيۡطَـٰنً۬ا فَهُوَ لَهُ ۥ قَرِينٌ۬   

If anyone withdraws himself from remembrance of (Allah) Most Gracious, We appoint for him an evil one, to be an intimate companion to him.

37.

وَإِنَّہُمۡ لَيَصُدُّونَہُمۡ عَنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ وَيَحۡسَبُونَ أَنَّہُم مُّهۡتَدُونَ 

Such (evil ones) really hinder them from the Path, but they think that they are being guided aright!

38.

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءَنَا قَالَ يَـٰلَيۡتَ بَيۡنِى وَبَيۡنَكَ بُعۡدَ ٱلۡمَشۡرِقَيۡنِ

At length, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says (to his evil companion):

"Would that between me and thee were the distance of East and West!"

فَبِئۡسَ ٱلۡقَرِينُ  

Ah! Evil is the companion (indeed)!

39.

وَلَن يَنفَعَڪُمُ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ إِذ ظَّلَمۡتُمۡ أَنَّكُمۡ فِى ٱلۡعَذَابِ مُشۡتَرِكُونَ 

When ye have done wrong, it will avail you nothing, that day, that ye shall be partners in punishment!

40.

أَفَأَنتَ تُسۡمِعُ ٱلصُّمَّ

Canst thou then make the deaf to hear,

أَوۡ تَہۡدِى ٱلۡعُمۡىَ

or give direction to the blind

وَمَن كَانَ فِى ضَلَـٰلٍ۬ مُّبِينٍ۬ 

or to such as (wander) in manifest error?

41.

فَإِمَّا نَذۡهَبَنَّ بِكَ فَإِنَّا مِنۡہُم مُّنتَقِمُونَ   

Even if We take thee away, We shall be sure to exact retribution from them.

42.

أَوۡ نُرِيَنَّكَ ٱلَّذِى وَعَدۡنَـٰهُمۡ

Or We shall show thee that (accomplished) which We have promised them:

فَإِنَّا عَلَيۡہِم مُّقۡتَدِرُونَ   

for verily We shall prevail over them.

43.

فَٱسۡتَمۡسِكۡ بِٱلَّذِىٓ أُوحِىَ إِلَيۡكَ‌ۖ

So hold thou fast to the Revelation sent down to thee:

إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ صِرَٲطٍ۬ مُّسۡتَقِيمٍ۬   

verily thou art on Straight Way.

44.

وَإِنَّهُ ۥ لَذِكۡرٌ۬ لَّكَ وَلِقَوۡمِكَ‌ۖ

The (Qur'án) is indeed the Message, for thee and for thy people;

وَسَوۡفَ تُسۡـَٔلُونَ

and soon shall ye (all) be brought to account.

45.

وَسۡـَٔلۡ مَنۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مِن قَبۡلِكَ مِن رُّسُلِنَآ

And question thou Our messengers whom We sent before thee;

أَجَعَلۡنَا مِن دُونِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ءَالِهَةً۬ يُعۡبَدُونَ 

did We appoint any deities other than (Allah) Most Gracious, to be worshipped?

46.

وَلَقَدۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مُوسَىٰ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَآ إِلَىٰ فِرۡعَوۡنَ وَمَلَإِيْهِۦ

We did send Moses aforetime, with Our Signs, to Pharaoh and his Chiefs:

فَقَالَ إِنِّى رَسُولُ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ   

he said, "I am an messenger of the Lord of the Worlds."

47.

فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَآ إِذَا هُم مِّنۡہَا يَضۡحَكُونَ 

But when he came to them with Our Signs, behold, they ridiculed them.

48.

وَمَا نُرِيهِم مِّنۡ ءَايَةٍ إِلَّا هِىَ أَڪۡبَرُ مِنۡ أُخۡتِهَا‌ۖ

We showed them Sign after Sign, each grater then its fellow,

وَأَخَذۡنَـٰهُم بِٱلۡعَذَابِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ   

and We seized them with Punishment, in order that they might turn (to Us).

49.

وَقَالُواْ يَـٰٓأَيُّهَ ٱلسَّاحِرُ

And they said, "O thou Sorcerer!

ٱدۡعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِندَكَ إِنَّنَا لَمُهۡتَدُونَ   

invoke thy Lord for us according to His covenant with thee; for We shall truly accept guidance."

50.

فَلَمَّا كَشَفۡنَا عَنۡہُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابَ إِذَا هُمۡ يَنكُثُونَ 

But when We removed the Penalty from them, behold, they broke their word.

51.

وَنَادَىٰ فِرۡعَوۡنُ فِى قَوۡمِهِۦ قَالَ يَـٰقَوۡمِ

And Pharaoh proclaimed among his people, saying: "O my people!

أَلَيۡسَ لِى مُلۡكُ مِصۡرَ

does not the dominion of Egypt belong to me,

وَهَـٰذِهِ ٱلۡأَنۡهَـٰرُ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِىٓ‌ۖ

(witness) these streams flowing underneath my (palace)?

أَفَلَا تُبۡصِرُونَ   

What! see ye not then?

52.

أَمۡ أَنَا۟ خَيۡرٌ۬ مِّنۡ هَـٰذَا ٱلَّذِى هُوَ مَهِينٌ۬ وَلَا يَكَادُ يُبِينُ 

"Am I not better than this (Moses), who is a contemptible wretch and can scarcely express himself clearly?

53.

فَلَوۡلَآ أُلۡقِىَ عَلَيۡهِ أَسۡوِرَةٌ۬ مِّن ذَهَبٍ

"Then why are not gold bracelets bestowed on him

أَوۡ جَآءَ مَعَهُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕڪَةُ مُقۡتَرِنِينَ   

or (why) come (not) with him angels accompanying him in procession?"

54.

فَٱسۡتَخَفَّ قَوۡمَهُ ۥ فَأَطَاعُوهُ‌ۚ

Thus did he make fools of his people, and they obeyed him:

إِنَّهُمۡ كَانُواْ قَوۡمً۬ا فَـٰسِقِينَ   

Truly were they a people rebellious (against Allah).

55.

فَلَمَّآ ءَاسَفُونَا ٱنتَقَمۡنَا مِنۡهُمۡ فَأَغۡرَقۡنَـٰهُمۡ أَجۡمَعِينَ 

When at length they provoked Us, We exacted retribution from them, and We drowned them all --

56.

فَجَعَلۡنَـٰهُمۡ سَلَفً۬ا وَمَثَلاً۬ لِّلۡأَخِرِينَ

And We made them (a people) of the Past and an Example to later ages.

57.

وَلَمَّا ضُرِبَ ٱبۡنُ مَرۡيَمَ مَثَلاً إِذَا قَوۡمُكَ مِنۡهُ يَصِدُّونَ 

When (Jesus) the son of Mary is held up as an example, behold, thy people raise a clamor thereat (in ridicule)!

58.

وَقَالُوٓاْ ءَأَٲلِهَتُنَا خَيۡرٌ أَمۡ هُوَ‌ۚ

And they say, "Are Our gods best, or He?"

مَا ضَرَبُوهُ لَكَ إِلَّا جَدَلاَۢ‌ۚ

This they set forth to thee, only by way of disputation:

بَلۡ هُمۡ قَوۡمٌ خَصِمُونَ   

yea, they are a contentious people.

59.

إِنۡ هُوَ إِلَّا عَبۡدٌ أَنۡعَمۡنَا عَلَيۡهِ

He was no more than a servant: We granted Our favor to him,

وَجَعَلۡنَـٰهُ مَثَلاً۬ لِّبَنِىٓ إِسۡرَٲٓءِيلَ   

and We made him an example to the Children of Israel.

60.

وَلَوۡ نَشَآءُ لَجَعَلۡنَا مِنكُم مَّلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةً۬ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ يَخۡلُفُونَ   

And if it were Our Will, We could make angels from amongst you, succeeding each other on the earth.

61.

وَإِنَّهُ ۥ لَعِلۡمٌ۬ لِّلسَّاعَةِ فَلَا تَمۡتَرُنَّ بِہَا وَٱتَّبِعُونِ‌ۚ

And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me:

هَـٰذَا صِرَٲطٌ۬ مُّسۡتَقِيمٌ۬ 

this is a Straight Way.

62.

وَلَا يَصُدَّنَّكُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنُ‌ۖإِنَّهُ ۥ لَكُمۡ عَدُوٌّ۬ مُّبِينٌ۬ 

Let not the Evil One hinder you: for he is to you an enemy avowed.

63.

وَلَمَّا جَآءَ عِيسَىٰ بِٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ قَالَ

When Jesus came with Clear Signs, he said:

قَدۡ جِئۡتُكُم بِٱلۡحِكۡمَةِ وَلِأُبَيِّنَ لَكُم بَعۡضَ ٱلَّذِى تَخۡتَلِفُونَ فِيهِ‌ۖ

"Now have I come to you with Wisdom, and in order to make clear to you some of the (points) on which ye dispute:

فَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُونِ   

therefore fear Allah and obey me.

64.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ رَبِّى وَرَبُّكُمۡ فَٱعۡبُدُوهُ‌ۚ

"For Allah; He is my Lord and your Lord: so worship ye Him:

هَـٰذَا صِرَٲطٌ۬ مُّسۡتَقِيمٌ۬ 

this is a Straight Way."

65.

فَٱخۡتَلَفَ ٱلۡأَحۡزَابُ مِنۢ بَيۡنِہِمۡ‌ۖ

But sects from among themselves fell into disagreement:

فَوَيۡلٌ۬ لِّلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنۡ عَذَابِ يَوۡمٍ أَلِيمٍ 

then woe to the wrongdoers, from the Penalty of a Grievous Day!

66.

هَلۡ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا ٱلسَّاعَةَ أَن تَأۡتِيَهُم بَغۡتَةً۬ وَهُمۡ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ 

Do they only wait for the Hour -- that it should come on them all of a sudden, while they perceive not?

67.

ٱلۡأَخِلَّآءُ يَوۡمَٮِٕذِۭ بَعۡضُهُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ

Friends on that Day will be foes, one to another, except the Righteous.

68.

يَـٰعِبَادِ لَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَيۡكُمُ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ وَلَآ أَنتُمۡ تَحۡزَنُونَ 

My devotees! no fear shall be on you that Day, nor shall ye grieve --

69.

ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا وَڪَانُواْ مُسۡلِمِينَ 

(Being) those who have believed in Our Signs and bowed (their wills to Ours) in Islam.

70.

ٱدۡخُلُواْ ٱلۡجَنَّةَ أَنتُمۡ وَأَزۡوَٲجُكُمۡ تُحۡبَرُونَ 

Enter ye the Garden, ye and your wives, in (beauty and) rejoicing.

71.

يُطَافُ عَلَيۡہِم بِصِحَافٍ۬ مِّن ذَهَبٍ۬ وَأَكۡوَابٍ۬‌ۖ

To them will be passed round, dishes and goblets of gold:

وَفِيهَا مَا تَشۡتَهِيهِ ٱلۡأَنفُسُ وَتَلَذُّ ٱلۡأَعۡيُنُ‌ۖ

there will be there all that the souls could desire, all that the eyes could delight in:

وَأَنتُمۡ فِيهَا خَـٰلِدُونَ   

and ye shall abide therein (for aye).

72.

وَتِلۡكَ ٱلۡجَنَّةُ ٱلَّتِىٓ أُورِثۡتُمُوهَا بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَ 

Such will be the Garden of which ye are made heirs for your (good) deeds (in life).

73.

لَكُمۡ فِيہَا فَـٰكِهَةٌ۬ كَثِيرَةٌ۬ مِّنۡهَا تَأۡكُلُونَ 

Ye shall have therein abundance of fruit, from which ye shall have satisfaction.

74.

إِنَّ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمِينَ فِى عَذَابِ جَهَنَّمَ خَـٰلِدُونَ 

The Sinners will be in the Punishment of Hell, to dwell therein (for aye):

75.

لَا يُفَتَّرُ عَنۡهُمۡ وَهُمۡ فِيهِ مُبۡلِسُونَ 

Nowise will the (punishment) be lightened for them, and in despair will they be there overwhelmed.

76.

وَمَا ظَلَمۡنَـٰهُمۡ وَلَـٰكِن كَانُواْ هُمُ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ 

Nowise shall We be unjust to them: but it is they who have been unjust themselves.

77.

وَنَادَوۡاْ يَـٰمَـٰلِكُ لِيَقۡضِ عَلَيۡنَا رَبُّكَ‌ۖ

They will cry: "O Malik! would that thy Lord put and end to us!"

قَالَ إِنَّكُم مَّـٰكِثُونَ 

He will say, "Nay, but ye shall abide!"

78.

لَقَدۡ جِئۡنَـٰكُم بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَكُمۡ لِلۡحَقِّ كَـٰرِهُونَ 

Verily We have brought the truth to you: but most of you have a hatred for Truth.

79.

أَمۡ أَبۡرَمُوٓاْ أَمۡرً۬ا فَإِنَّا مُبۡرِمُونَ 

What! have they settled some Plan (among themselves)?

But it is We Who settle things.

80.

أَمۡ يَحۡسَبُونَ أَنَّا لَا نَسۡمَعُ سِرَّهُمۡ وَنَجۡوَٮٰهُم‌ۚ

Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private counsels?

بَلَىٰ وَرُسُلُنَا لَدَيۡہِمۡ يَكۡتُبُونَ 

Indeed (We do), and Our Messengers are by them, to record.

81.

قُلۡ إِن كَانَ لِلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ وَلَدٌ۬ فَأَنَا۟ أَوَّلُ ٱلۡعَـٰبِدِينَ 

Say: "If (Allah) Most Gracious had a son, I would be the first to worship."

82.

سُبۡحَـٰنَ رَبِّ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَرۡشِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ 

Glory to the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne (of Authority)! (He is free) from the things they attribute (to Him)!

83.

فَذَرۡهُمۡ يَخُوضُواْ وَيَلۡعَبُواْ حَتَّىٰ يُلَـٰقُواْ يَوۡمَهُمُ ٱلَّذِى يُوعَدُونَ 

So leave them to babble and play (with vanities) until they meet that Day of theirs, which they have been promised.

84.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ إِلَـٰهٌ۬ وَفِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ إِلَـٰهٌ۬‌ۚ

It is He Who is Allah in heaven and Allah on earth;

وَهُوَ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ 

and He is full of Wisdom and Knowledge.

85.

وَتَبَارَكَ ٱلَّذِى لَهُ ۥ مُلۡكُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَمَا بَيۡنَهُمَا

And blessed is He to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all between them:

وَعِندَهُ ۥ عِلۡمُ ٱلسَّاعَةِ وَإِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ 

with Him is the knowledge of the Hour (of Judgment): And to Him shall ye be brought back.

86.

وَلَا يَمۡلِكُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَدۡعُونَ مِن دُونِهِ ٱلشَّفَـٰعَةَ

And those whom they invoke besides Allah have no power of intercession;

إِلَّا مَن شَہِدَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَهُمۡ يَعۡلَمُونَ   

only he who bears witness to the Truth, and they know (him).

87.

وَلَٮِٕن سَأَلۡتَهُم مَّنۡ خَلَقَهُمۡ لَيَقُولُنَّ ٱللَّهُ‌ۖ

If thou ask them, Who Created them, they will certainly say, Allah:

فَأَنَّىٰ يُؤۡفَكُونَ   

how then are they deluded away (from the Truth)?

88.

وَقِيلِهِۦ يَـٰرَبِّ إِنَّ هَـٰٓؤُلَآءِ قَوۡمٌ۬ لَّا يُؤۡمِنُونَ 

(Allah has knowledge) of the (Prophet's) cry,

"O my Lord! truly these are a people who will not believe!"

89.

فَٱصۡفَحۡ عَنۡہُمۡ وَقُلۡ سَلَـٰمٌ۬‌ۚ

But turn away from them, and say "Peace!"

فَسَوۡفَ يَعۡلَمُونَ 

but soon shall they know!
