In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . Alif . Lam . Ra . These are verses of the Scripture and a plain Reading .

2 . It may be that those who disbelieve wish ardently that they were Muslims .

3 . Let them eat and enjoy life , and let ( false ) hope beguile them . They will come to know!

4 . And We destroyed no township but there was a known decree for it .

5 . No nation can outstrip its term nor can they lag behind .

6 . And they say : O thou unto whom the Reminder is revealed , lo! thou art indeed a madman!

7 . Why bringest thou not angels unto Us , if thou art of the truthful?

8 . We send not down the angels save with the Fact , and that case ( the disbelievers ) would not be tolerated .

9 . Lo! We , even We , reveal the Reminder , and lo! We verily are it ' s Guardian .

10 . We verily sent ( messengers ) before thee among the factions of the men of old .

11 . And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him .

12 . Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty :

13 . They believe not therein , though the example of the men of old hath gone before .

14 . And even if We opened unto them a Gate of Heaven and they kept mounting through it .

15 . They would say : Our sight is wrong nay , but we are folk bewitched .

16 . And verily in the heaven We have set mansions of the stars , and We have beautified it for beholders .

17 . And We have guarded it from every outcast devil ,

18 . Save him who stealeth the hearing , and them doth a clear flame pursue .

19 . And the earth have We spread out , and placed therein firm hills , and caused each seemly thing to grow therein .

20 . And We have given unto you livelihoods therein , and unto those for whom ye provide not .

21 . And there is not a thing but with Us are the stores thereof . And We send it not down save in appointed measure .

22 . And We send the winds fertilizing , and cause water to descend from the sky , and give it you to drink . It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof .

23 . Lo! and it is We , even We , Who quicken and give death , and We are the Inheritor .

24 . And verily We know the eager among you and verily We know the laggards .

25 . Lo! thy Lord will gather them together . Lo! He is Wise , Aware .

26 . Verily We created man of potter ' s clay of black mud altered ,

27 . And the jinn did We create aforetime of essential fire .

28 . And ( remember ) when thy Lord said unto the angels : Lo! I am creating a mortal out of potter ' s clay of black mud altered .

29 . So , when I have made him and have breathed into him of My spirit , do ye fall down , prostrating yourselves unto him .

30 . So the angels fell prostrate , all of them together

31 . Save Iblis . He refused to be among the prostrate .

32 . He said : O Iblis! What aileth thee that thou art not among the prostrate?

33 . He said : Why should I prostrate myself unto a mortal whom Thou hast created out of potter ' s clay of black mud altered?

34 . He said : Then go thou forth from hence , for verily thou art outcast .

35 . And lo! the curse shall be upon thee till the Day of Judgment .

36 . He said : My Lord! Reprieve me till the day when they are raised .

37 . He said : Then lo! thou art of those reprieved

38 . Till an appointed time .

39 . He said : My Lord , Because Thou has sent me astray , I verily shall adorn the path of error for them in the earth , and shall mislead them every one .

40 . Save such of them as are Thy perfectly devoted slaves .

41 . He said : This is a right course incumbent upon Me :

42 . Lo! as for My slaves , thou hast no power over any of them save such of the froward as follow thee ,

43 . And lo! for all such , hell will be the promised place .

44 . It hath seven gates , and each gate hath an appointed portion .

45 . Lo! those who ward off ( evil ) are among gardens and watersprings .

46 . ( And it is said unto them ) : Enter them in peace , secure .

47 . And We remove whatever rancor may be in their breasts . As brethren , face to face , ( they rest ) on couches raised .

48 . Toil cometh not unto them there , nor will they be expelled from thence .

49 . Announce , ( O Muhammad ) unto My slaves that verily I am the Forgiving , the Merciful .

50 . And that My doom is the dolorous doom .

51 . And tell them of Abraham ' s guests ,

52 . ( How ) when they came in unto him , and said : Peace . He said : Lo! we are afraid of you .

53 . They said : Be not afraid! Lo! we bring thee good tidings of a boy possessing wisdom .

54 . He said : Bring ye me good tidings ( of a son ) when old age hath overtaken me? Of what then can ye bring good tidings?

55 . They said : We bring thee good tidings in truth . So be not thou of the despairing .

56 . He said : And who despaireth not the mercy of his Lord save those who are astray?

57 . He said : And afterward what is your business , O ye messengers ( of Allah ) ?

58 . They said : We have been sent unto a guilty folk .

59 . ( All ) save the family of Lot . Them we shall deliver everyone ,

60 . Except his wife , of whom We had decreed that she should be of those who stay behind .

61 . And when the messengers came unto the family of Lot ,

62 . He said : Lo! ye are folk unknown ( to me ) .

63 . They said : Nay , but we bring thee that concerning which they keep disputing ,

64 . And bring thee the Truth , and lo! we are truth tellers .

65 . So travel with thy household in a portion of the night , and follow thou their backs . Let none of you turn round , but go whither ye are commanded .

66 . And We made plain the case to him , that the root of them ( who did wrong ) was to be cut at early morn .

67 . And the people of the city came , rejoicing at the news ( of new arrivals ) .

68 . He said : Lo! they are my guests . Affront me not!

69 . And keep your duty to Allah , and shame me not!

70 . They said : Have we not forbidden you from ( entertaining ) anyone?

71 . He said : Here are my daughters , if ye must be doing ( so ) .

72 . By thy life ( O Muhammad ) they moved blindly in the frenzy of approaching death .

73 . Then the ( Awful ) Cry overtook them at the sunrise .

74 . And We utterly confounded them , and We rained upon them stones of heated clay .

75 . Lo! therein verily are portents for those who read the signs .

76 . And lo! it is upon a road still uneffaced .

77 . Lo! therein is indeed a portent for believers .

78 . And the dwellers in the wood indeed were evil doers .

79 . So . We took vengeance on them ; and lo! they both are on a high road plain to see .

80 . And the dwellers in Al-Hijr indeed denied ( Our ) messengers .

81 . And We gave them Our revelations , but they were averse to them .

82 . And they used to hew out dwellings from the hills , ( wherein they dwelt ) secure .

83 . But the ( Awful ) Cry overtook them at the morning hour ,

84 . And that which they were wont to count as gain availed them not .

85 . We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them save with truth , and lo! the Hour is surely coming . So forgive , O Muhammad , with a gracious forgiveness .

86 . Lo! Thy Lord! He is the All Wise Creator .

87 . We have given thee seven of the oft repeated ( verses ) and the great Quran .

88 . Strain not thine eyes toward that which We cause some wedded pairs among them to enjoy , and be not grieved on their account , and lower thy wing ( in tenderness ) for the believers .

89 . And say : Lo! I , even I , am a plain warner ,

90 . Such as We send down for those who make division ,

91 . Those who break the Quran into parts .

92 . Them , by thy Lord , We shall question , every one ,

93 . Of what they used to do .

94 . So proclaim that which thou art commanded , and withdraw from the idolaters .

95 . Lo! We defend thee from the scoffers ,

96 . Who set some other god along with Allah . But they will come to know .

97 . Well know We that thy bosom is at times oppressed by what they say ,

98 . But hymn the praise of thy Lord , and be of those who make prostration ( unto Him ) .

99 . And serve thy Lord till the inevitable cometh unto thee .
