In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Alif . Lam . Ra . These are verses of the wise Scripture .
2 . Is it a wonder for mankind that We have inspired a man among them , saying : Warn mankind and bring unto those who believe the good tidings that they have a sure footing with their Lord? The disbelievers say : Lo! this is a mere wizard .
3 . Lo! your Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six days , then He established Himself upon the Throne , directing all things . There is no intercessor ( with Him ) save after His permission . That is Allah , your Lord , so worship Him . Oh , will ye not remind?
4 . Unto Him is the return of all of you ; it is a promise of Allah in truth . Lo! He produceth creation , then reproduceth it , that He may reward those who believe and do good works with equity ; while , as for those who disbelieve , theirs will be a boiling drink and painful doom because they disbelieved .
5 . He it is who appointed the sun a splendor and the moon a light , and measured for her stages , that ye might know the number of the years , and the reckoning . Allah created not ( all ) that save in truth . He detaileth the revelations for people who have knowledge .
6 . Lo! in the difference of day and night and all that Allah hath created in the heavens and the earth are portents , verily , for folk who ward off ( evil ) .
7 . Lo! those who expect not the meeting with Us but desire the life of the world and feel secure therein , and those who are neglectful of Our revelations ,
8 . Their home will be the Fire because of what they used to earn .
9 . Lo! those who believe and do good works , their Lord guideth them by their faith . Rivers will flow beneath them in the Gardens of Delight ,
10 . Their prayer therein will be : Glory be to Thee , O Allah! and their greeting therein will be : Peace . And the conclusion of their prayer will be : Praise be to Allah , Lord of the Worlds!
11 . If Allah were to hasten on for men the ill ( that they have earned ) as they would hasten on the good , their respite would already have expired . But We suffer those who look not for the meeting with Us to wander blindly on in their contumacy .
12 . And if misfortune touch a man he crieth unto Us , ( while reclining ) on his side , or sitting or standing , but when We have relieved him of the misfortune he goeth his way as though he had not cried unto Us because of a misfortune that afflicted him . Thus is what they do made ( seeming ) fair unto the prodigal .
13 . We destroyed the generations before you when they did wrong ; and their messengers ( from Allah ) came unto them with clear proofs ( of His Sovereignty ) but they would not believe . Thus do We reward the guilty folk :
14 . Then We appointed you viceroys in the earth after them , that We might see how ye behave .
15 . And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them they who look not for the meeting with Us say : Bring a Lecture other than this , or change it . Say ( O Muhammad ) : It is not for me to change it of my own accord . I only follow that which is inspired in me . Lo! If I disobey my Lord I fear the retribution of an awful Day .
16 . Say : If Allah had so willed I should not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you . I dwelt among you a whole lifetime before it ( came to me ) . Have ye then no sense?
17 . Who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah and denieth His revelations? Lo! the guilty never are successful .
18 . They worship beside Allah that which neither hurteth them nor profiteth them , and they say : These are our intercessors with Allah . Say : Would ye inform Allah of ( something ) that He knoweth not in the heavens or in the earth? Praised be He and high exalted above all that ye associate ( with Him ) !
19 . Mankind were but one community ; then they differed ; and had it not been for a word that had already gone forth from thy Lord it had been judged between them in respect of that wherein they differ .
20 . And they will say : If only a portent were sent down upon him from his Lord! Then say ( O Muhammad ) : The Unseen belongeth to Allah . So wait! Lo , I am waiting with you .
21 . And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy after some adversity which had afflicted them , behold! they have some plot against Our revelations . Say : Allah is more swift in plotting . Lo! Our messengers write down that which ye plot .
22 . He it is Who maketh you to go on the land and the sea till , when ye are in the ships and they sail with them with a fair breeze and they are glad therein , a storm wind reacheth them and the wave cometh unto them from every side and they deem that they are overwhelmed therein ; ( then ) they cry unto Allah , making their faith pure for Him only ; If Thou deliver us from this , we truly will be of the thankful .
23 . Yet when He hath delivered them , behold! they rebel in the earth wrongfully . O mankind! Your rebellion is only against yourselves . ( Ye have ) enjoyment of the life of the world ; then unto Us is your return and We shall proclaim unto you what ye used to do .
24 . The similitude of the life of the world is only as water which We send down from the sky , then the earth ' s growth of that which men and cattle eat mingleth with it till , when the earth hath taken on her ornaments and is embellished , and her people deem that they are masters of her , Our commandment cometh by night or by day and we make it as reaped corn as if it had not flourished yesterday . Thus do We expound the revelations for people who reflect .
25 . And Allah summoneth to the abode of peace , and leadeth whom He will to a straight path .
26 . For those who do good is the best ( reward ) and more ( thereto ) . Neither dust nor ignominy cometh near their faces . Such are rightful owners of the Garden ; they will abide therein .
27 . And those who earn ill deeds , ( for them ) requital of each ill deed by the like thereof ; and ignominy overtaketh them . They have no protector from Allah . As if their faces had been covered with a cloak of darkest night . Such are rightful owners of the Fire ; they will abide therein
28 . On the day when We gather them all together , then We say unto those who ascribed partners ( unto Us ) : Stand back , ye and your ( pretended ) partners ( of Allah ) ! And We separate them , the one from the other , and their ( pretended ) partners say : It was not us ye worshipped .
29 . Allah sufficeth as a witness between us and you , that we were unaware of your worship .
30 . There doth every soul experience that which it did aforetime , and they are returned unto Allah , their rightful Lord , and that which they used to invent hath failed them .
31 . Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Who provideth for you from the sky and the earth , or Who owneth hearing and sight ; and Who bringeth forth the living from the dead and bringeth forth the dead from the living ; and Who directeth the course? They will say : Allah . Then say : Will ye not then keep your duty ( unto Him ) ?
32 . Such then is Allah , your rightful Lord . After the Truth what is there saving error? How then are ye turned away!
33 . Thus is the Word of thy Lord justified concerning those who do wrong : that they believe not .
34 . Say : Is there of your partners ( whom ye ascribe unto Allah ) one that produceth Creation and then reproduceth it? Say : Allah produceth creation , then reproduceth it . How then , are ye misled!
35 . Say : Is there of your partners ( whom ye ascribe unto Allah ) one that leadeth to the Truth? Say : Allah leadeth to the Truth . Is He Who leadeth to the Truth more deserving that He should be followed , or he who findeth not the way unless he ( himself ) be guided . What aileth you? How judge ye?
36 . Most of them follow naught but conjecture . Assuredly conjecture can by no means take the place of truth . Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do .
37 . And this Quran is not such as could ever be invented in despite of Allah ; but it is a confirmation of that which was before it and an exposition of that which is decreed for mankind . Therein is no doubt from the Lord of the Worlds .
38 . Or say they : He hath invented it? Say : Then bring a surah like unto it , and call ( for help ) on all ye can besides Allah , if ye are truthful .
39 . Nay , but they denied that , the knowledge whereof they could not compass , and whereof the interpretation ( in events ) hath not yet come unto them . Even so did those before them deny . Then see what was the consequence for the wrongdoers!
40 . And of them is he who believeth therein , and of them is he who believeth not therein , and thy Lord is best aware of the corrupters .
41 . And if they deny thee , say : Unto me my work , and unto you your work . Ye are innocent of what I do , and I am innocent of what ye do .
42 . And of them are some who listen unto thee . But canst thou make the deaf to hear even though they apprehend not?
43 . And of them is he who looketh toward thee . But canst thou guide the blind even though they see not?
44 . Lo! Allah wrongeth not mankind in aught ; but mankind wrong themselves .
45 . And on the day when He shall gather them together , ( when it will seem ) as though they had tarried but an hour of the day , recognizing one another , those will . verily have perished who denied the meeting with Allah and were not guided .
46 . Whether We let thee ( O Muhammad ) behold something of that which We promise them or ( whether We ) cause thee to die , still unto Us is their return , and Allah , moreover , is Witness over what they do .
47 . And for every nation there is a messenger . And when their messenger cometh ( on the Day of Judgment ) it will be judged between them fairly , and they will not be wronged .
48 . And they say : When will this promise be fulfilled , if ye are truthful?
49 . Say : I have no power to hurt or benefit myself , save that which Allah willeth . For every nation there is an appointed time . When their time cometh , then they cannot put it off an hour , nor hasten ( it ) .
50 . Say : Have ye thought : When His doom cometh unto you as a raid by night , or in the ( busy ) day ; what is there of it that the guilty ones desire to hasten?
51 . Is it ( only ) then , when it hath befallen you , that ye will believe? What! ( Believe ) now , when ( until now ) ye have been hastening it on ( through disbelief ) ?
52 . Then will it be said unto those who dealt unjustly : Taste the torment of eternity . Are ye requited aught save what ye used to earn?
53 . And they ask thee to inform them ( saying ) : Is it true? Say : Yea , by my Lord , verity it is true , and ye cannot escape .
54 . And if each soul that doeth wrong had all that is in the earth it would seek to ransom itself therewith ; and they will feel remorse within them , when they see the doom . But it hath been judged between them fairly and they are not wronged .
55 . Lo! verily all that is in the heavens and the earth is Allah ' s . Lo! verity Allah ' s promise is true . But most of them know not .
56 . He quickeneth and giveth death , and unto Him ye will be returned .
57 . O mankind! There hath come unto you an exhortation from your Lord , a balm for that which is in the breasts , a guidance and a mercy for believers .
58 . Say : In the bounty of Allah and in His mercy : therein let them rejoice . It is better than what they hoard .
59 . Say : Have ye considered what provision Allah hath sent down for you , how ye have made of it lawful and unlawful? Say : Hath Allah permitted you , or do ye invent a lie concerning Allah?
60 . And what think those who invent a lie concerning Allah ( will be their plight ) upon the Day of Resurrection? Lo! Allah truly is Bountiful toward mankind , but most of them give not thanks .
61 . And thou ( Muhammad ) art not occupied with any business and thou recitest not a lecture from this ( Scripture ) , and ye ( mankind ) perform no act , but We are Witness of you when ye are engaged therein . And not an atom ' s weight in the earth or in the sky escapeth your Lord , nor what is less than that or greater than that , but it is ( written ) in a clear Book .
62 . Lo! verily the friends of Allah are ( those ) on whom fear ( cometh ) not , nor do they grieve .
63 . Those who believe and keep their duty ( to Allah ) ,
64 . Theirs are good tidings in the life of the world and in the Hereafter . There is no changing the Words of Allah that is the Supreme Triumph .
65 . And let not their speech grieve thee ( O Muhammad ) . Lo! power belongeth wholly to Allah . He is the Hearer , the Knower .
66 . Lo! is it not unto Allah that belongeth whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth? Those who follow aught instead of Allah follow not ( His ) partners . They follow only a conjecture . and they do but guess .
67 . He it is who hath appointed for you the night that ye should rest therein and the day giving sight . Lo! herein verily are portents for a folk that heed .
68 . They say : Allah hath taken ( unto Him ) a son . Glorified be He! He hath no needs! His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth . Ye have no warrant for this . Tell ye concerning Allah that which ye know not?
69 . Say : Verily those who invent a lie concerning Allah will not succeed .
70 . This world ' s portion ( will be theirs ) , then unto Us is their return . Then We make them taste a dreadful doom because they used to disbelieve .
71 . Recite unto them the story of Noah , when he told his people : O my people! If my sojourn ( here ) and my reminding you by Allah ' s revelations are an offence unto you , in Allah have I put my trust , so decide upon your course of action , you and your partners . Let not your course of action be in doubt , for you . Then have at me , give me no respite .
72 . But if ye are averse I have asked of you no wage . My wage is the concern of Allah only , and I am commanded to be of those who surrender ( unto Him ) .
73 . But they denied him , so We saved him and those with him in the ship , and made them viceroys ( in the earth ) , while We drowned those who denied Our revelations . See then the nature of the consequence for those who had been warned .
74 . Then , after him , We sent messengers unto their folk , and they brought them clear proofs . But they were not ready to believe in that which they before denied . Thus print We on the hearts of the transgressors .
75 . Then , after them , We sent Moses and Aaron unto Pharaoh and his chiefs with Our revelations , but they were arrogant and were a guilty folk .
76 . And when the Truth from Our presence came unto them , they said : This is mere magic .
77 . Moses said : Speak ye ( so ) of the Truth when it hath come unto you? Is this magic? Now magicians thrive not .
78 . They said : Hast thou come unto us to pervert us from that ( faith ) in which we found our fathers , and that you two may own the place of greatness in the land? We will not believe you two .
79 . And Pharaoh said : Bring every cunning wizard unto me .
80 . And when the wizards came , Moses said unto them : Cast your cast!
81 . And when they had cast , Moses said : That which ye have brought is magic . Lo! Allah will make it vain . Lo! Allah upholdeth not the work of mischief makers .
82 . And Allah will vindicate the Truth by His words , however much the guilty be averse .
83 . But none trusted Moses , save some scions of his people , ( and they were ) in fear of Pharaoh and their chiefs , that they would persecute them . Lo! Pharaoh was verily a tyrant in the land , and Lo! he verily was of the wanton .
84 . And Moses said : O my people! If ye have believed in Allah then put trust in Him , if ye have indeed surrendered ( unto Him ) !
85 . They said : In Allah we put trust . Our Lord! Oh , make us not a lure for the wrongdoing folk ;
86 . And , of Thy mercy , save us from the folk that disbelieve .
87 . And We inspired Moses and his brother , ( saying ) : Appoint houses for your people in Egypt and make your houses oratories , and establish worship . And give good news to the believers .
88 . And Moses said : Our Lord! Lo! Thou hast given Pharaoh and his chiefs splendor and riches in the life of the world , Our Lord! that they may lead men astray from Thy way . Our Lord! Destroy their riches and harden their hearts so that they believe not till they see the painful doom .
89 . He said : Your prayer is heard . Do ye twain keep to the straight path , and follow not the road of those who have no knowledge .
90 . And We brought the Children of Israel across the sea , and Pharaoh with his hosts pursued them in rebellion and transgression , till , when the ( fate of ) drowning overtook him , he exclaimed : I believe that there is no God save Him in whom the Children of Israel believe , and I am of those who surrender ( unto Him ) .
91 . What! Now! When hitherto thou hast rebelled and been of the wrong doers?
92 . But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayest be a portent for those after thee . Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents .
93 . And We verify did allot unto the Children of Israel a fixed abode , and did provide them with good things ; and they differed not until knowledge came unto them . Lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ .
94 . And if thou ( Muhammad ) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee , then question those who read the Scripture ( that was ) before thee . Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee . So be not thou of the waverers .
95 . And be not thou of those who deny the revelations of Allah , for then wert thou of the losers .
96 . Lo! those for whom the word of thy Lord ( concerning sinners ) hath effect will not believe ,
97 . Though every token come unto them , till they see the painful doom .
98 . If only there had been a community ( of all those that were destroyed of old ) that believed and profited by its belief as did the folk of Jonah . When they believed We drew off from them the torment of disgrace in the life of the world and gave them comfort for a while .
99 . And if thy Lord willed , all who are in the earth would have believed together . Wouldst thou ( Muhammad ) compel men until they are believers?
100 . It is not for any soul to believe save by the permission of Allah . He hath set uncleanness upon those who have no sense .
101 . Say : Behold what is in the heavens and the earth! But revelations and warnings avail not folk who will not believe .
102 . What expect they save the like of the days of those who passed away before them? Say : Expect then! I am with you among the expectant .
103 . Then shall We save Our messengers and the believers , in like manner ( as of old ) . It is incumbent upon Us to save believers .
104 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : O mankind! If ye are in doubt of my religion , then ( know that ) I worship not those whom ye worship instead of Allah , but I worship Allah who causeth you to die , and I have been commanded to be of the believers .
105 . And , ( O Muhammad ) set thy purpose resolutely for religion , as a man by nature upright , and be not of those who ascribe partners ( to Allah ) .
106 . And cry not , beside Allah , unto that which cannot profit thee nor hurt thee , for if thou didst so then wert thou of the wrong-doers .
107 . If Allah aflicteth thee with some hurt , there is none who can remove it save Him ; and if He desireth good for thee ,
108 . Say : O mankind! Now hath the Truth from your Lord come unto you . So whosoever is guided , is guided only for ( the food of ) his soul , and whosoever erreth erreth only against it . And I am not a warder over you .
109 . And ( O Muhammad ) follow that which is inspired in thee , and forbear until Allah give judgment . And He is the Best of Judges .
