 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. Ha Mim.

 2. The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the 

 3. The Forgiver of the faults and the Acceptor of 
 repentance, Severe to punish, Lord of bounty; there is no 
 god but He; to Him is the eventual coming.

 4. None dispute concerning the communications of Allah but 
 those who disbelieve, therefore let not their going to and 
 fro in the cities deceive you.

 5. The people of Nuh and the parties after them rejected 
 (prophets) before them, and every nation purposed against 
 their apostle to destroy him, and they disputed by means of 
 the falsehood that they might thereby render null the truth, 
 therefore I destroyed them; how was then My retribution!

 6. And thus did the word of your Lord prove true against 
 those who disbelieved that they are the inmates of the fire.

 7. Those who bear the power and those around Him celebrate 
 the praise of their Lord and believe in Him and ask 
 protection for those who believe: Our Lord! Thou embracest 
 all things in mercy and knowledge, therefore grant 
 protection to those who turn (to Thee) and follow Thy way, 
 and save them from the punishment of the hell:

 8. Our Lord! and make them enter the gardens of perpetuity 
 which Thou hast promised to them and those who do good of 
 their fathers and their wives and their offspring, surely 
 Thou are the Mighty, the Wise.

 9. And keep them from evil deeds, and whom Thou keepest from 
 evil deeds this day, indeed Thou hast mercy on him, and that 
 is the mighty achievement.

 10. Surely those who disbelieve shall be cried out to: 
 Certainly Allah's hatred (of you) when you were called upon 
 to the faith and you rejected, is much greater than your 
 hatred of yourselves.

 11. They shall say: Our Lord! twice didst Thou make us 
 subject to death, and twice hast Thou given us life, so we 
 do confess our faults; is there then a way to get out?

 12. That is because when Allah alone was called upon, you 
 disbelieved, and when associates were given to Him, you 
 believed; so judgment belongs to Allah, the High, the Great.

 13. He it is Who shows you His signs and sends down for you 
 sustenance from heaven, and none minds but he who turns (to 
 Him) again and again.

 14. Therefore call upon Allah, being sincere to Him in 
 obedience, though the unbelievers are averse:

 15. Possessor of the highest rank, Lord of power: He makes 
 the inspiration to light by His command upon whom He pleases 
 of His servants, that he may warn (men) of the day of 

 16. (Of) the day when they shall come forth, nothing 
 concerning them remains hidden to Allah. To whom belongs the 
 kingdom this day? To Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all).

 17. This day every soul shall be rewarded for what it has 
 earned; no injustice (shall be done) this day; surely Allah 
 is quick in reckoning.

 18. And warn them of the day that draws near, when hearts 
 shall rise up to the throats, grieving inwardly; the unjust 
 shall not have any compassionate friend nor any intercessor 
 who should be obeyed.

 19. He knows the stealthy looks and that which the breasts 

 20. And Allah judges with the truth; and those whom they 
 call upon besides Him cannot judge aught; surely Allah is 
 the Hearing, the Seeing.

 21. Have they not travelled in the earth and seen how was 
 the end of those who were before them? Mightier than these 
 were they in strength-- and in fortifications in the land, but 
 Allah destroyed them for their sins; and there was not for 
 them any defender against Allah.

 22. That was because there came to them their apostles with 
 clear arguments, but they rejected (them), therefore Allah 
 destroyed them; surely He is Strong, Severe in retribution.

 23. And certainly We sent Musa with Our communications and 
 clear authority,

 24. To Firon and Haman and Qaroun, but they said: A lying 

 25. So when he brought to them the truth from Us, they said: 
 Slay the sons of those who believe with him and keep their 
 women alive; and the struggle of the unbelievers will only 
 come to a state of perdition.

 26. And Firon said: Let me alone that I may slay Musa and 
 let him call upon his Lord; surely I fear that he will 
 change your religion or that he will make mischief to appear 
 in the land.

 27. And Musa said: Surely I take refuge with my Lord and-- 
 your Lord from every proud one who does not believe in the 
 day of reckoning.

 28. And a believing man of Firon's people who hid his faith 
 said: What! will you slay a man because he says: My Lord is 
 Allah, and indeed he has brought to you clear arguments from 
 your Lord? And if he be a liar, on him will be his lie, and 
 if he be truthful, there will befall you some of that which 
 he threatens you (with); surely Allah does not guide him who 
 is extravagant, a liar:

 29. O my people! yours is the kingdom this day, being 
 masters in the land, but who will help us against the 
 punishment of Allah if it come to us? Firon said: I do not 
 show you aught but that which I see (myself), and I do not 
 make you follow any but the right way.

 30. And he who believed said: O my people! surely I fear for 
 you the like of what befell the parties:

 31. The like of what befell the people of Nuh and Ad and 
 Samood and those after them, and Allah does not desire 
 injustice for (His) servants;

 32. And, O my people! I fear for you the day of calling out,

 33. The day on which you will turn back retreating; there 
 shall be no savior for you from Allah, and whomsoever Allah 
 causes to err, there is no guide for him:

 34. And certainly Yusuf came to you before with clear 
 arguments, but you ever remained in doubt as to what he 
 brought; until when he died, you said: Allah will never 
 raise an apostle after him. Thus does Allah cause him to err 
 who is extravagant, a doubter

 35. Those who dispute concerning the communications of Allah 
 without any authority that He has given them; greatly hated 
 is it by Allah and by-those who believe. Thus does Allah set 
 a seal over the heart of every proud, haughty one.

 36. And Firon said: O Haman! build for me a tower that I may 
 attain the means of access,

 37. The means of access to the heavens, then reach the God 
 of Musa, and I surely think him to be a liar. And thus the 
 evil of his deed was made fairseeming to Firon, and he was 
 turned away from the way; and the struggle of Firon was not 
 (to end) in aught but destruction.

 38. And he who believed said: O my people! follow me, I will 
 guide you to the right course;

 39. O my people! this life of the world is only a (passing) 
 enjoyment, and surely the hereafter is the abode to settle;

 40. Whoever does an evil, he shall not be recompensed (with 
 aught) but the like of it, and whoever does good, whether 
 male or female, and he is a believer, these shall enter the 
 garden, in which they shall be given sustenance without 

 41. And, O my people! how is it that I call you to salvation 
 and you call me to the fire?

 42. You call on me that I should disbelieve in Allah and 
 associate with Him that of which I have no knowledge, and I 
 call you to the Mighty, the most Forgiving;

 43. No doubt that what you call me to has no title to be 
 called to in this world, nor in the hereafter, and that our 
 turning back is to Allah, and that the extravagant are the 
 inmates of the fire;

 44. So you shall remember what I say to you, and I entrust 
 my affair to Allah, Surely Allah sees the servants.

 45. So Allah protected him from the evil (consequences) of 
 what they planned, and the most evil punishment overtook 
 Firon's people:

 46. The fire; they shall be brought before it (every) 
 morning and evening and on the day when the hour shall come 
 to pass: Make Firon's people enter the severest 

 47. And when they shall contend one with another in the 
 fire, then the weak shall say to those who were proud: 
 Surely we were your followers; will you then avert from us a 
 portion of the fire?

 48. Those who were proud shall say: Surely we are all in it: 
 surely Allah has judged between the servants.

 49. And those who are in the fire shall say to the keepers 
 of hell: Call upon your Lord that He may lighten to us one 
 day of the punishment.

 50. They shall say: Did not your apostles come to you with 
 clear arguments? They shall say: Yea. They shall say: Then 
 call. And the call of the unbelievers is only in error.

 51 . Most surely We help Our apostles, and those who 
 believe, in this world's life and on the day when the 
 witnesses shall stand

 52. The day on which their excuse shall not benefit the 
 unjust, and for them is curse and for them is the evil 

 53. And certainly We gave Musa the guidance, and We made the 
 children of Israel inherit the Book,

 54. A guidance and a reminder to the men of understanding.

 55. Therefore be patient; surely the promise of Allah is 
 true; and ask protection for your fault and sing the praise 
 of your Lord in the evening and the morning.

 56. Surely (as for) those who dispute about the 
 communications of Allah without any authority that has come 
 to them, there is naught in their breasts but (a desire) to 
 become great which they shall never attain to; Therefore 
 seek refuge in Allah, surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.

 57. Certainly the creation of the heavens and the earth is 
 greater than the creation of the men, but most people do not 

 58. And the blind and the seeing are not alike, nor those 
 who believe and do good and the evil-doer; little is it that 
 you are mindful.

 59. Most surely the hour is coming, there is no doubt 
 therein, but most people do not believe.

 60. And your Lord says: Call upon Me, I will answer you; 
 surely those who are too proud for My service shall soon 
 enter hell abased.

 61. Allah is He Who made for you the night that you may rest 
 therein and the day to see; most surely Allah is Gracious to 
 men, but most men do not give thanks. 

 62. That is Allah, your Lord, the Creator of everything; 
 there is no God but He; whence are you then turned away? 

 63. Thus were turned away those who denied the 
 communications of Allah. 

 64. Allah is He Who made the earth a resting-place for you 
 and the heaven a canopy, and He formed you, then made goodly 
 your forms, and He provided you with goodly things; that is 
 Allah, your Lord; blessed then is Allah, the Lord of the 

 65. He is the Living, there is no god but He, therefore call 
 on Him, being sincere to Him in obedience; (all) praise is 
 due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. 

 66. Say: I am forbidden to serve those whom you call upon 
 besides Allah when clear arguments have come to me from my 
 Lord, and I am commanded that I should submit to the Lord of 
 the worlds. 

 67. He it is Who created you from dust, then from a small 
 lifegerm, then from a clot, then He brings you forth as a 
 child, then that you may attain your maturity, then that you 
 may be old-- and of you there are some who are caused to die 
 before-- and that you may reach an appointed term, and that 
 you may understand. 

 68. He it is Who gives life and brings death, so when He 
 decrees an affair, He only says to it: Be, and it is. 

 69. Have you not seen those who dispute with respect to the 
 communications of Allah: how are they turned away?

 70. Those who reject the Book and that with which We have 
 sent Our Apostle; but they shall soon come to know, 

 71. When the fetters and the chains shall be on their necks; 
 they shall be dragged 72. Into boiling water, then in the 
 fire shall they be burned; 

 73. Then shall it be said to them: Where is that which you 
 used to set up 

 74. Besides Allah? They shall say: They are gone away from 
 us, nay, we used not to call upon anything before. Thus does 
 Allah confound the unbelievers. 

 75. That is because you exulted in the land unjustly and 
 because you behaved insolently.

 76. Enter the gates of hell to abide therein, evil then is 
 the abode of the proud.

 77. So be patient, surely the promise of Allah is true. So 
 should We make you see part of what We threaten them with, 
 or should We cause you to die, to Us shall they be returned.

 78. And certainly We sent apostles before you: there are 
 some of them that We have mentioned to you and there are 
 others whom We have not mentioned to you, and it was not 
 meet for an apostle that he should bring a sign except with 
 Allah's permission, but when the command of Allah came, 
 judgment was given with truth, and those who treated (it) as 
 a lie were lost.

 79. Allah is He Who made the cattle for you that you may 
 ride on some of them, and some of them you eat.

 80. And there are advantages for you in them, and that you 
 may attain thereon a want which is in your breasts, and upon 
 them and upon the ships you are borne.

 81. And He shows you His signs: which then of Allah's signs 
 will you deny?

 82. Have they not then journeyed in the land and seen how 
 was the end of those before them? They were more (in 
 numbers) than these and greater in strength and in 
 fortifications in the land, but what they earned did not 
 avail them.

 83. Then when their apostles came to them with clear 
 arguments, they exulted in what they had with them of 
 knowledge, and there beset them that which they used to 

 84. But when they saw Our punishment, they said: We believe 
 in Allah alone and we deny what we used to associate with 

 85. But their belief was not going to profit them when they 
 had seen Our punishment; (this is) Allah's law, which has 
 indeed obtained in the matter of His servants, and there the 
 unbelievers are lost.
