In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Successful indeed are the believers
2 . Who are humble in their prayers ,
3 . And who shun vain conversation ,
4 . And who are payers of the poor due ;
5 . And who guard their modesty
6 . Save from their wives or the ( slaves ) that their right hands possess , for then they are not blameworthy ,
7 . But whoso craveth beyond that , such are transgressors ,
8 . And who are shepherds of thee pledge and their covenant ,
9 . And who pay heed to their prayers .
10 . These are the heirs
11 . Who will inherit Paradise : There they will abide .
12 . Verily We created man from a product of wet earth ;
13 . Then placed him as a drop ( of seed ) in a safe lodging ;
14 . Then fashioned We the drop a clot , then fashioned We the clot a little lump , then fashioned We the little lump bones , then clothed the bones with flesh , and then produced it another creation . So blessed be Allah , the Best of Creators!
15 . Then lo! after that ye surely die .
16 . Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection ye are raced ( again ) .
17 . And We have created above you seven paths , and We are never unmindful of creation .
18 . And We send down from the sky water in measure , and We give it lodging in the earth , and lo! We are able to withdraw It .
19 . Then We produce for you therewith gardens of date palms and grapes , wherein is much fruit for you and whereof ye eat ;
20 . And a tree that springeth forth from Mount Sinai that groweth oil and relish for the eaters .
21 . And lo! in the cattle there is verily a lesson for you . We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies , and many uses have ye in them , and of them do ye eat ;
22 . And on them and on the ship ye are carried .
23 . And We verily sent Noah unto his folk , and he said : O my people! Serve Allah . Ye have no other god save Him . Will ye not ward off ( evil ) ?
24 . But the chieftains of his folk , who disbelieved , said : This is only a mortal like you who would make himself superior to you . Had Allah willed , He surely could have sent down angels . We heard not of this in the case of our fathers of old .
25 . He is only a man in whom is a madness , so watch him for a while .
26 . He said : My Lord! Help me because they deny me .
27 . Then We inspired in him , saying : Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration . Then , when Our command cometh and the oven gusheth water , introduce therein of every ( kind ) two spouses , and thy household save him thereof against whom the Word hath already gone forth . And plead not with Me on behalf of those who have done wrong : Lo! they will be drowned .
28 . And when thou art on board the ship , thou and whoso is with thee , then say : Praise be to Allah Who hath saved us from the wrongdoing folk!
29 . And say : My Lord! Cause me to land at a blessed landing place , for Thou art best of all who bring to land .
30 . Lo! herein verily are portents , for lo! We are ever putting ( mankind ) to the test .
31 . Then , after them , We brought forth another generation ;
32 . And We sent among them a messenger of their own saying : Serve Allah . Ye have no other god save Him . Will ye not warn off ( evil ) ?
33 . And the chieftains of his folk , who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the Hereafter , and whom We had made soft in the life of the world , said : This is only a mortal like you , who eateth of that whereof ye eat and drinketh of that ye drink .
34 . If ye were to obey a mortal like yourselves , ye surely would be losers .
35 . Doth he promise you that you , when ye are dead and have become dust and bones , will ( again ) be brought forth?
36 . Begone , begone , with that which ye are promised!
37 . There is naught but our life of the world ; we die and we live , and we shall not be raised ( again ) .
38 . He is only a man who hath invented a lie about Allah . We are not going to put faith in him .
39 . He said : My Lord! Help me because they deny me ,
40 . He said : In a little while they surely will become repentant .
41 . So the ( Awful ) Cry overtook them rightfully , and We made them like as wreckage ( that a torrent hurleth ) . A far removal for wrongdoing folk!
42 . Then after them We brought forth other generations .
43 . No nation can outstrip its term , nor yet postpone it .
44 . Then We sent our messengers one after another . Whenever its messenger came unto a nation they denied him ; so We caused them to follow one another ( to disaster ) and We made them bywords . A far removal for folk who believe not!
45 . Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our tokens and a clear warrant
46 . Unto Pharaoh and his chiefs , but they scorned ( them ) and they were despotic folk .
47 . And they said : Shall we put faith in two mortals like ourselves , and whose folk are servile unto us?
48 . So they denied them , and became of those who were destroyed .
49 . And we verily gave Moses the Scripture , that haply they might go aright .
50 . And We made the son of Mary and his mother a portent , and We gave them refuge on a height , a place of flocks and water springs .
51 . O ye messengers! Eat of the good thing , and do right . Lo! I am Aware of what ye do .
52 . And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord , so keep your duty unto Me .
53 . But they ( mankind ) have broken their religion among them into sects , each sect rejoicing in its tenets .
54 . So leave them in their error till a time .
55 . Think they that in the wealth and sons wherewith We provide them
56 . We hasten unto them with good things? Nay , but they perceive not .
57 . Lo! those who go in awe for fear of their Lord ,
58 . And those who believe in the revelations of their Lord ,
59 . And those who ascribe not partners unto their Lord ,
60 . And those who give that which they give with hearts afraid because they are about to return unto their Lord ,
61 . These race for the good things , and they shall win them in the race .
62 . And We task not any soul beyond its scope , and with Us is a Record which speaketh the truth , and they will not be wronged .
63 . Nay , but their hearts are in ignorance of this ( Quran ) , and they have other works , besides , which they are doing ;
64 . Till when We grasp their luxurious ones with the punishment , behold! they supplicate .
65 . Supplicate not this day! Assuredly ye will not be helped by Us .
66 . My revelations were recited unto you , but ye used to turn back on your heels ,
67 . In scorn thereof . Nightly did ye rave together .
68 . Have they not pondered the Word , or hath that come unto them which came not unto their fathers of old?
69 . Or know they not their messenger , and so reject him?
70 . Or say they : There is a madness in him? Nay , but he bringeth them the Truth ; and most of them are haters of the Truth .
71 . And if the Truth had followed their desires , verily the heavens and the earth and whosoever is therein had been corrupted . Nay , We have brought them their Reminder , but from their Reminder they now turn away .
72 . Or dost thou ask of them ( O Muhammad ) any tribute? But! the bounty of thy Lord is better , for He is best of all who make provision .
73 . And lo! thou summonest them indeed unto a right path .
74 . And lo! those who believe not in the Hereafter are indeed astray from the path .
75 . Though We had mercy on them and relieved them of the harm afflicting them , they still would wander blindly on in their contumacy .
76 . Already have We grasped them with punishment , but they humble not themselves unto their Lord , nor do they pray ,
77 . Until , when We open for them the gate of extreme punishment , behold! they are aghast thereat .
78 . He it is Who hath created for you ears and eyes and hearts . Small thanks give ye!
79 . And He it is Who hath sown you broadcast in the earth , and unto Him ye will be gathered .
80 . And He it is Who giveth life and causeth death , and His is the difference of night and day . Have ye then no sense?
81 . Nay , but they say the like of that which said the men of old ;
82 . They say : When we are dead and have become ( mere dust and bones , shall we then , forsooth , be raised again?
83 . We were already promised this , we and our forefathcrs . Lo! this is naught but fables of the men of old .
84 . Say : Unto Whom ( belongeth ) the earth and whosoever is therein , if ye have knowledge?
85 . They will say : Unto Allah . Say : Will ye not then remember?
86 . Say : Who is Lord of the seven heavens , and Lord of the Tremendous Throne?
87 . They will say : Unto Allah ( all that belongeth ) . Say : Will ye not then keep duty ( unto Him ) ?
88 . Say : In Whose hand is the dominion over all things and He protecteth , while against Him there is no protection , if ye have knowledge?
89 . They will say : Unto Allah ( all that belongeth ) . Say : How then are ye bewitched?
90 . Nay , but We have brought them the Truth , and lo! they are liars .
91 . Allah hath not chosen any son , nor is there any God along with Him ; else would each God have assuredly championed that which he created , and some of them would assuredly have overcome others . Glorified be Allah above all that they allege .
92 . Knower of the invisible and the visible! and exalted be He over all that they ascribe as partners ( unto Him ) !
93 . Say : My Lord! If thou shouldst show me that which they are promised ,
94 . My Lord! then set me not among the wrongdoing folk .
95 . And verily We are Able to show thee that which We have promised them .
96 . Repel evil with that which is better . We are best Aware of that which they allege .
97 . And say : My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones ,
98 . And I seek refuge in Thee , my Lord , lest they be present with me ,
99 . Until , when death cometh unto one of them , he saith : My Lord! Send me back ,
100 . That I may do right in that which I have left behind! But nay! It is but a word that he speaketh ; and behind them is a barrier until the day when they are raised .
101 . And when the trumpet is blown there will be no kinship among them that day , nor will they ask of one another .
102 . Then those whose scales are heavy , they are the successful .
103 . And those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls , in hell abiding .
104 . The fire burneth their faces , and they are glum therein .
105 . ( It will be said ) : Were not My revelations recited unto you , and then ye used to deny them?
106 . They will say : Our Lord! Our evil fortune conquered us , and we were erring folk .
107 . Our Lord! Oh , bring us forth from hence! If we return ( to evil ) then indeed we shall be wrong doers .
108 . He saith : Begone therein , and speak not unto Me .
109 . Lo! there was a party of My slaves who said : Our Lord! We believe , therefor forgive us and have mercy on us for Thou art best of all who show mercy ;
110 . But ye chose them from a laughing stock until they caused you to forget remembrance of Me , while ye laughed at them .
111 . Lo! I have rewarded them this day forasmuch as they were steadfast ; and they verily are the triumphant .
112 . He will say : How long tarried ye in the earth , counting by years?
113 . They will say : We tarried but a day or part of a day . Ask of those who keep count!
114 . He will say : Ye tarried but a little if ye only knew .
115 . Deemed ye then that We had created you for naught , and that ye would not be returned unto Us?
116 . Now Allah be exalted , the True King! There is no God save Him , the Lord of the Throne of Grace .
117 . He who crieth unto any other god along with Allah hath no proof thereof . His reckoning is only with his Lord . Lo! disbelievers will not be successful .
118 . And ( O Muhammad ) say : My Lord! Forgive and have mercy , for Thou art best of all who show mercy .
