 In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

 1. Alif Lam Ra. These are the verses of the Book and (of) a 
 Quran that makes (things) clear.

 2. Often will those who disbelieve wish that they had been 

 3. Leave them that they may eat and enjoy themselves and 
 (that) hope may beguile them, for they will soon know.

 4. And never did We destroy a town but it had a term made 

 5. No people can hasten on their doom nor can they postpone 

 6. And they say: O you to whom the Reminder has been 
 revealed! you are most surely insane: 

 7. Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the 
 truthful ones?

 8. We do not send the angels but with truth, and then they 
 would not be respited.

 9 Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most 
 surely be its guardian.

 10. And certainly We sent (apostles) before you among the 
 nations of yore.

 11. And there never came an apostle to them but they mocked 

 12. Thus do We make it to enter into the hearts of the 

 13. They do not believe in it, and indeed the example of the 
 former people has already passed.

 14. And even if We open to them a gateway of heaven, so that 
 they ascend into it all the while,

 15. They would certainly say: Only our eyes.have been 
 covered over, rather we are an enchanted people.

 16. And certainly We have made strongholds in the heaven and 
 We have made it fair seeming to the beholders.

 17. And We guard it against every accursed Shaitan,

 18. But he who steals a hearing, so there follows him a 
 visible flame.

 19. And the earth-- We have spread it forth and made in it 
 firm mountains and caused to grow in it of every suitable 

 20. And We have made in it means of subsistence for you and 
 for him for whom you are not the suppliers.

 21. And there is not a thing but with Us are the treasures 
 of it, and We do not send it down but in a known measure.

 22. And We send the winds fertilizing, then send down water 
 from the cloud so We give it to you to drink of, nor is it 
 you who store it up.

 23. And most surely We bring to life and cause to die and We 
 are the heirs.

 24. And certainly We know those of you who have gone before 
 and We certainly know those who shall come later.

 25. And surely your Lord will gather them together; surely 
 He is Wise, Knowing.

 26. And certainly We created man of clay that gives forth 
 sound, of black mud fashioned in shape.

 27. And the jinn We created before, of intensely hot fire.

 28. And when your Lord said to the angels: Surely I am going 
 to create a mortal of the essence of black mud fashioned in 

 29. So when I have made him complete and breathed into him 
 of My spirit, fall down making obeisance to him.

 30. So the angels made obeisance, all of them together,

 31. But Iblis (did it not); he refused to be with those who 
 made obeisance.

 32. He said: O Iblis! what excuse have you that you are not 
 with those who make obeisance?

 33. He said: I am not such that I should make obeisance to a 
 mortal whom Thou hast created of the essence of black mud 
 fashioned in shape.

 34. He said: Then get out of it, for surely you are driven 

 35. And surely on you is curse until the day of judgment.

 36. He said: My Lord! then respite me till the time when 
 they are raised.

 37. He said: So surely you are of the respited ones

 38. Till the period of the time made known.

 39. He said: My Lord! because Thou hast made life evil to 
 me, I will certainly make (evil) fair-seeming to them on 
 earth, and I will certainly cause them all to deviate

 40. Except Thy servants from among them, the devoted ones.

 41. He said: This is a right way with Me:

 42. Surely. as regards My servants, you have no authority 
 ,over them except those who follow you of the deviators.

 43. And surely Hell is the promised place of them all:

 44. It has seven gates; for every gate there shall be a 
 separate party of them.

 45. Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in the 
 midst of gardens and fountains:

 46. Enter them in peace, secure.

 47. And We will root out whatever of rancor is in their 
 breasts-- (they shall be) as brethren, on raised couches, face 
 to face.

 48. Toil shall not afflict them in it, nor shall they be 
 ever ejected from it.

 49. Inform My servants that I am the Forgiving, the 

 50. And that My punishment-- that is the painful punishment.

 51. And inform them of the guests of Ibrahim:

 52. When they entered upon him, they said, Peace. He said: 
 Surely we are afraid of you.

 53. They said: Be not afraid, surely we give you the good 
 news of a boy, possessing knowledge.

 54. He said: Do you give me good news (of a son) when old 
 age has come upon me?-- Of what then do you give me good 
 news! SS. They said: We give you good news with truth, 
 therefore be not of the despairing.

 56. He said: And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord but 
 the erring ones?

 57. He said: What is your business then, O messengers?

 58. They said: Surely we are sent towards a guilty people,

 59. Except Lut's followers: We will most surely deliver them 

 60. Except his wife; We ordained that she shall surely be of 
 those who remain behind.

 61. So when the messengers came to Lut's followers,

 62. He said: Surely you are an unknown people.

 63. They said: Nay, we have come to you with that about 
 which they disputed.

 64. And we have come to you with the truth, and we are most 
 surely truthful.

 65. Therefore go forth with your followers in a part of the 
 night and yourself follow their rear, and let not any one of 
 you turn round, and go forth whither you are commanded.

 66. And We revealed to him this decree, that the roots of 
 these shall be cut off in the morning.

 67. And the people of the town came rejoicing.

 68. He said: Surely these are my guests, therefore do not 
 disgrace me,

 69. And guard against (the punishment of) Allah and do not 
 put me to shame.

 70. They said: Have we not forbidden you from (other) 

 71. He said: These are my daughters, if you will do (aught).

 72. By your life! they were blindly wandering on in their 

 73. So the rumbling overtook them (while) entering upon the 
 time of sunrise;

 74. Thus did We turn it upside down, and rained down upon 
 them stones of what had been decreed.

 75. Surely in this are signs for those who examine.

 76. And surely it is on a road that still abides.

 77. Most surely there is a sign in this for the believers.

 78. And the dwellers of the thicket also were most surely 

 79. So We inflicted retribution on them, and they are both, 
 indeed, on an open road (still) pursued.

 80. And the dwellers of the Rock certainly rejected the 

 81. And We gave them Our communications, but they turned 
 aside from them;

 82. And they hewed houses in the mountains in security.

 83. So the rumbling overtook them in the morning;

 84. And what they earned did not avail them.

 85. And We did not create the heavens and the earth and what 
 is between them two but in truth; and the hour is most 
 surely coming, so turn away with kindly forgiveness.

 86. Surely your Lord is the Creator of all things, the 

 87. And certainly We have given you seven of the 
 oft-repeated (verses) and the grand Quran.

 88. Do not strain your eyes after what We have given certain 
 classes of them to enjoy, and do not grieve for them, and 
 make yourself gentle to the believers.

 89. And say: Surely I am the plain warner.

 90. Like as We sent down on the dividers

 91. Those who made the Quran into shreds.

 92. So, by your Lord, We would most certainly question them 

 93. As to what they did.

 94. Therefore declare openly what you are bidden and turn 
 aside from the polytheists.

 95. Surely We will suffice you against the scoffers

 96. Those who set up another god with Allah; so they shall 
 soon know.

 97. And surely We know that your breast straitens at what 
 they say;

 98. Therefore celebrate the praise of your Lord, and be of 
 those who make obeisance.

 99. And serve your Lord until there comes to you that which 
 is certain.
