In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far Distant Place of Worship the neighborhood whereof We have blessed , that We might show him of Our tokens! Lo! He , only He , is the Nearer , the Seer .
2 . We gave unto Moses the Scripture , and We appointed it a guidance for the Children of Israel , saying : Choose no guardian beside Me .
3 . ( They were ) the seed of those whom We carried ( in the ship ) along with Noah . Lo! he was a grateful slave .
4 . And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the scripture : Ye verily will work corruption in the earth twice , and ye will become great tyrants .
5 . So when the time for the first of the two came , We roused against you slaves of Ours of great might who ravaged ( your ) country , and it was a threat performed .
6 . Then we gave you once again your turn against them , and We aided you with wealth and children and made you more in soldiery ,
7 . ( Saying ) : If ye do good , ye do good for your own souls , and if ye do evil , it is for them ( in like manner ) . So , when the time for the second ( of the judgments ) came ( We roused against you others of Our slaves ) to ravage you , and to enter the Temple even as they entered it the first time , and to lay waste all that they conquered with an utter wasting .
8 . It may be that your Lord will have mercy on you , but if ye repeat ( the crime ) We shall repeat ( the punishment ) , and We have appointed hell a dungeon for the disbelievers .
9 . Lo! this Quran guideth unto that which is straightest , and giveth tidings unto the believers who do good works that theirs will be a great reward .
10 . And that those who believe not in the Hereafter , for them We have prepared a painful doom .
11 . Man prayeth for evil as he prayeth for good ; for man was ever hasty .
12 . And we appoint the night and the day two portents . Then We make dark the portent of the night , and We make the portent of the day sight giving , that ye may seek bounty from your Lord , and that ye may know the computation of the years , and the reckoning ; and everything have We expounded with a clear expounding .
13 . And every man ' s augury have We fastened to his own neck , and We shall bring forth for him on the Day of Resurrection a book which he will find wide open .
14 . ( And it will be said unto him ) : Read thy book . Thy soul sufficeth as reckoner against thee this day .
15 . Whosoever goeth right , it is only for ( the good of ) his own soul that he goeth right , and whosoever erreth , erreth only to its hurt . No laden soul can bear another ' s load . We never punish until We have sent a messenger .
16 . And when We would destroy a township We send commandment to its folk who live at ease , and afterward they commit abomination therein , and so the Word ( of doom ) hath effect for it , and We annihilate it with complete annihilation .
17 . How many generations have we destroyed since Noah! And Allah sufficeth as knower and Beholder of the sins of His slaves .
18 . Whoso desireth that ( life ) which hasteneth away , We hasten for him therein that We will for whom We please . And afterward We have appointed for him hell ; he will endure the heat thereof , condemned , rejected .
19 . And whoso desireth the Hereafter and striveth for it with the effort necessary , being a believer ; for such , their effort findeth favor ( with their Lord ) .
20 . Each do We supply , both these and those , from the bounty of thy Lord . And the bounty of thy Lord can never be walled up .
21 . See how We prefer one above another , and verily the Hereafter will be greater in degrees and greater in preferment .
22 . Set not up with Allah any other god ( O man ) lest thou sit down reproved , forsaken .
23 . Thy Lord hath decreed , that ye worship none save Him , and ( that ye show ) kindness to parents . If one of them or both of them to attain old age with thee , say not "Fie" unto them nor repulse them , but speak unto them a gracious word .
24 . And lower unto them the wing of submission through mercy , and say : My Lord! Have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I was little .
25 . Your Lord is best aware of what is in your minds . If ye are righteous , then lo! He was ever Forgiving unto those who turn ( unto Him ) .
26 . Give the kinsman his due , and the needy , and the wayfarer , and squander not ( thy wealth ) in wantonness .
27 . Lo! the squanderers were ever brothers of the devils , and the devil was ever an ingrate to his Lord .
28 . But if thou turn away from them , seeking mercy from thy Lord , for which thou hopest , then speak unto them a reasonable word .
29 . And let not thy hand be chained to thy neck nor open it with a complete opening , lest thou sit down rebuked , denuded .
30 . Lo! thy Lord enlargeth the provision for whom He will , and straiteneth ( it for whom He will ) . Lo , He was ever Knower , Seer of His slaves .
31 . Slay not your children , fearing a fall to poverty , We shall provide for them and for you . Lo! the slaying of them is great sin .
32 . And come not near unto adultery . Lo! it is an abomination and an evil way .
33 . And slay not the life which Allah hath forbidden save with right . Whoso is slain wrongfully , We have given power unto his heir , but let him not commit excess in slaying . Lo! he will be helped .
34 . Come not near the wealth of the orphan save with that which is better till he come to strength ; and keep the covenant . Lo! of the covenant it will be asked .
35 . Fill the measure then ye measure , and weigh with a right balance ; that is meet , and better in the end .
36 . ( O man ) , follow not that whereof thou hast no knowledge . Lo! the hearing and the sight and the heart of each of these it will be asked .
37 . And walk not in the earth exultant . Lo! thou canst not rend the earth , nor canst thou stretch to the height of the hills .
38 . The evil of all that is hateful in the sight of thy Lord .
39 . This is ( part ) of that wisdom wherewith thy Lord hath inspired thee ( O Muhammad ) . And set not up with Allah any other god , lest thou be cast into hell , reproved , abandoned .
40 . Hath your Lord then distinguished you ( O men of Mecca ) by giving you sons , and hath chosen for Himself females from among the angels? Lo! verily ye speak an awful word!
41 . We verily have displayed ( Our warnings ) in this Quran that they may take heed , but it increaseth them in naught save aversion .
42 . Say ( O Muhammad , to the disbelievers ) : If there were other gods along with Him , as they say , then had they sought a way against the Lord of the Throne .
43 . Glorified is He , and High Exalted above what they say!
44 . The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein praise Him , and there is not a thing but hymneth his praise ; but ye understand not their praise . Lo! He is ever Clement , Forgiving .
45 . And when thou recitest the Quran We place between thee , and those who believe not in the Hereafter a hidden barrier ;
46 . And We place upon their hearts veils lest they should understand it , and in their ears a deafness ; and when thou makest mention of thy Lord alone in the Quran , they turn their backs in aversion .
47 . We are best aware of what they wish to hear when they give ear to thee and when they take secret counsel , when the evil doers say : Ye follow but a man bewitched .
48 . See what similitudes they coin for thee , and thus are all astray , and cannot find a road!
49 . And they say : When we are bones and fragments , shall we , forsooth , be raised up as a new creation?
50 . Say : Be ye stones or iron
51 . Or some created thing that is yet greater in your thoughts! Then they will say : Who shall bring us back ( to life ) . Say : He who created you at the first . Then will they shake their heads at thee , and say : When will it be? Say : It will perhaps be soon ;
52 . A day when He will call you and ye will answer with His praise , and ye will think that ye have tarried but a little while .
53 . Tell My bondmen to speak that which is kindlier . Lo! the devil soweth discord among them . Lo! the devil is for man an open foe .
54 . Your Lord is best aware of you . If He will , He will have mercy on you , or if He will , He will punish you . We have not sent thee ( O Muhammad ) as a warden over them .
55 . And thy Lord is best aware of all who are in the heavens and the earth . And we preferred some of the Prophets above others , and unto David We gave the Psalms .
56 . Say : Cry unto those ( saints and angels ) whom ye assume ( to be gods ) beside Him , yet they have no power to rid you of misfortune nor to change .
57 . Those unto whom they cry seek the way of approach to their Lord , which of them shall be the nearest ; they hope for His mercy and they fear His doom . Lo! the doom of thy Lord is to be shunned .
58 . There is not a township but We shall destroy it ere the Day of Resurrection , or punish it with dire punishment . That is set forth in the Book ( of Our decrees ) .
59 . Naught hindereth Us from sending portents save that the folk of old denied them . And We gave Thamud the she camel a clear portent but they did wrong in respect of her . We send not portents save to warn .
60 . And ( it was a warning ) when We told thee : Lo! thy Lord encompasseth mankind , and We appointed the vision which We showed thee as an ordeal for mankind , and ( likewise ) the Accursed Tree in the Quran . We warn them , but it increaseth them in naught save gross impiety .
61 . And when We said unto the angels : Fall down prostrate before Adam and they fell prostrate all save Ibis , he said : Shall I fall prostrate before that which Thou hast created of clay?
62 . He said : Seest Thou this ( creature ) whom Thou hast honored above me , if Thou give me grace until the Day of Resurrection I verily will seize his seed , save but a few .
63 . He said : Go , and whosoever of them followeth thee lo! your payment , ample payment .
64 . And excite any of them whom thou canst with thy voice , and urge thy horse and foot against them , and be a partner in their wealth and children , and promise them . Satan promiseth them only to deceive .
65 . Lo! My ( faithful ) bondmen over them thou hast no power , and thy Lord sufficeth as ( their ) guardian .
66 . ( O mankind ) , your Lord is He Who driveth for you the ship upon the sea that ye may seek of His bounty . Lo! He was ever Merciful toward you .
67 . And when harm toucheth you upon the sea , all unto whom ye cry ( for succour ) fail save Him ( alone ) , but when He bringeth you safe to land , ye turn away , for man was ever thankless .
68 . Feel ye then secure that He will not cause a slope of the land to engulf you , or send a sandstorm , upon you , and then ye will find that ye have no protector?
69 . Or feel ye secure that He will not return you to that ( plight ) a second time , and send against you a hurricane of wind and drown you for your thanklessness , and then ye will not find therein that ye have any avenger against Us?
70 . Verily We have honored the children of Adam . We carry them on the land and the sea , and have made provision of good things for them , and have preferred them above many of those whom We created with a marked preferment .
71 . On the day when We shall summon ill men with their record , whoso is given his book in his right hand such will read their book and they will not be wronged a shred .
72 . Whoso is blind here wilt be blind in the Hereafter , and yet further from the road .
73 . And they indeed strove hard to beguile thee ( Muhammad ) away from that wherewith We have inspired thee , that thou shouldst invent other than it against Us ; and then would they have accepted thee as a friend .
74 . And if We had not made thee wholly firm thou mightest almost have inclined unto them a little .
75 . Then had We made thee taste a double ( punishment ) of living and a double ( punishment ) of dying , then hadst thou found no helper against Us .
76 . And they indeed wished to scare thee from the land that they might drive thee forth from thence , and then they would have stayed ( there ) but a little after thee .
77 . ( Such was Our ) method in the case of those whom We sent before thee ( to mankind ) , and thou wilt not find for Our method aught of power to change .
78 . Establish worship at the going down of the sun until the dark of night , and ( the recital of ) the Quran at dawn . Lo! ( the recital of ) the Quran at dawn is ever witnessed .
79 . And some part of the night awake for it , a largess for thee . It may be that thy Lord will raise thee to a praised estate .
80 . And say : My Lord! Cause me to come in with a firm incoming and to go out with a firm outgoing . And give me from Thy presence a sustaining Power .
81 . And say : Truth hath come and falsehood hath vanished away . Lo! falsehood is ever bound to vanish .
82 . And We reveal of the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy for believers though it increase the evil doers in naught save ruin .
83 . And when We make life pleasant unto man , he turneth away and is averse ; and when ill toucheth him he is in despair .
84 . Say : Each one doth according to his rule of conduct , and thy Lord is best aware of him whose way is right .
85 . They will ask thee concerning the Spirit . Say : The Spirit is by command of my Lord , and of knowledge ye have been vouchsafed but little .
86 . And if We willed We could withdraw that which We have revealed unto thee , then wouldst thou find no guardian for thee against Us in respect thereof .
87 . ( It is naught ) save mercy from thy Lord . Lo! His kindness unto thee was ever great .
88 . Say : Verily , though mankind and the Jinn should assemble to produce the like of this Quran , they could not produce the like thereof though they were helpers one of another .
89 . And verity We have displayed for mankind in this Quran all kids or similitudes , but most of mankind refuse aught save disbelief .
90 . And they say : We will not put faith in thee till thou cause a spring to gush forth from the earth for us ;
91 . Or thou have a garden of date palms and grapes , and cause rivers to gush forth therein abundantly ;
92 . Or thou cause the heaven to fall upon us piecemeal , as thou hast pretended , or bring Allah and the angels as a warrant ;
93 . Thou have a house of gold ; or thou ascend up into heaven , and even then we will put no faith in thine ascension till thou bring down for us a book that we can read . Say ( O Muhammad ) : My Lord be glorified! Am I naught save a mortal messenger?
94 . And naught prevented mankind from believing when the guidance came unto them save that they said : Hath Allah sent a mortal as ( His ) messenger?
95 . Say : If there were in the earth angels walking secure , We had sent down for them from heaven an angel as messenger .
96 . Say : Allah sufficeth for a witness between me and you Lo! He is . Knower , Seer of His slaves .
97 . And he whom Allah guideth , he is led aright ; while , as for him whom He sendeth astray , for them thou wilt find no protecting friends beside Him , and We shall assemble them on the Day of Resurrection on their faces , blind , dumb and deaf ; their habitation will be hell ; whenever it abateth , We increase the flame for them .
98 . That is their reward because they disbelieved Our revelations and said : When we are bones and fragments shall we , forsooth , be raised up as a new creation?
99 . Have they not seen that Allah Who created the heavens and the earth is Able to create the like of them , and hath appointed for them an end whereof there is no doubt? But the wrong doers refuse aught save disbelief .
100 . Say ( unto them ) : If ye possessed the treasures of the mercy of my Lord , ye would surely hold them back for fear of spending , for man was ever grudging .
101 . And verily We gave unto Moses nine tokens , clear proofs ( of Allah ' s Sovereignty ) . Do but ask the Children of Israel how he came unto them , then Pharaoh said unto him : Lo! I deem thee one bewitched , O Moses .
102 . He said : In truth thou knowest that none sent down these ( portents ) save the Lord of the heavens and the earth as proofs , and lo! ( for my part ) I deem thee lost , O Pharaoh .
103 . And he wished to scare them from the land , but We drowned him and those with him , all together .
104 . And We said unto the Children of Israel after him : Dwell in the land ; but when the promise of the Hereafter cometh to pass we shall bring you as a crowd gathered out of various nations . '
105 . With truth have We sent it down , and with truth hath it descended . And We have sent thee as naught else save a bearer of good tidings and a warner .
106 . And ( it is ) a Quran that We have divided , that thou mayest recite it unto mankind at intervals , and We have revealed it by ( successive ) revelation .
107 . Say : Believe therein or believe not , lo! those who were given knowledge before it , when it is read unto them , fall down prostrate on their faces , adoring ,
108 . Saying : Glory to our Lord! Verily the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled .
109 . They fall down on their faces , weeping , and it increaseth humility in them .
110 . Say ( unto mankind ) : Cry unto Allah , or cry unto the Beneficent , unto whichsoever ye cry ( it is the same ) . His are the most beautiful names . And thou ( Muhammad ) , be not loud voiced in thy worship nor yet silent therein , but follow a way between .
111 . And say : Praise be to Allah , Who hath not taken unto Himself a son , and Who hath no partner in the Sovereignty , nor hath He any protecting friend through dependence . And magnify Him with all magnificence .
