In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Ta . Sin . These are revelations of the Quran and a Scripture that maketh plain ;
2 . A guidance and good tidings for believers
3 . Who establish worship and pay the poor due and are sure of the Hereafter .
4 . Lo! as for those who believe not in the Hereafter , We have made their works fair seeming unto them so that they are all astray .
5 . Those are they for whom is the worst of punishment , and in the Hereafter they will be the greatest losers .
6 . Lo! as for thee ( Muhammad ) , thou verily receivest the Quran from the presence of One Wise , Aware .
7 . ( Remember ) when Moses said unto his household : Lo! I spy afar off a fire ; I will bring you tidings thence , or bring to you a borrowed flame that ye may warm yourselves .
8 . But when he reached it , he was called , saying : Blessed is whosoever is in the fire and whosoever is round about it! And glorified be Allah , the Lord of the Worlds!
9 . O Moses! Lo! it is I , Allah , the Mighty , the Wise .
10 . And throw down thy staff! But when he saw it writhing as it were a demon , he turned to flee headlong ; ( but it was said unto him ) : O Moses! Fear not! Lo! the emissaries fear not in My presence ,
11 . Save him who hath done wrong and afterward hath changed evil for good . And lo! I am Forgiving , Merciful .
12 . And put thy hand into the bosom of thy robe , it will come forth white but unhurt . ( This will be one ) among name tokens unto Pharaoh and his people . Lo! they were ever evil living folk .
13 . But when Our tokens came unto them , plain to see , they said : This is mere magic ,
14 . And they denied them , though their souls acknowledged them , for spite and arrogance . Then see the nature of the consequence for the wrong doers!
15 . And We verily gave knowledge unto David and Solomon , and they said : Praise be to Allah , Who hath preferred us above many of His believing slaves!
16 . And Solomon was David ' s heir . And he said : O mankind! Lo! we have been taught the language of birds , and have been given ( abundance ) of all things . This surely is evident favor .
17 . And there were gathered together unto Solomon his armies of the jinn and humankind , and of the birds , and they were set in battle order ;
18 . Till , when they reached the Valley of the Ants , an ant exclaimed : O ants! Enter your dwellings lest Solomon and his armies crush you , unperceiving .
19 . And ( Solomon ) smiled , laughing at her speech , and said : My Lord , arouse me to be thankful for Thy favor wherewith Thou hast favored me and my parents , and to do good that shall be pleasing unto Thee , and include me in ( the number of ) Thy righteous staves .
20 . And he sought among the birds and said : How is it that I see not the hoopoe , or is he among the absent?
21 . I verily will punish him with hard punishment or I verily will slay him , or he verily shall bring me a plain excuse .
22 . But he was not long in coming , and he said : I have found out ( a thing ) that thou apprehendest not , and I come unto thee from Sheba with sure tidings .
23 . Lo! I found a woman ruling over them , and she hath been given ( abundance ) of all things , and hers is a mighty throne .
24 . I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah ; and Satan maketh their works fair seeming unto them , and debarreth them from the way ( of Truth ) , so that they go not aright :
25 . So that they worship not Allah , Who bringeth forth the hidden in the heavens and the earth , and knoweth what ye hide and what ye proclaim ,
26 . Allah ; there is no God save Him , the Lord of the tremendous Throne .
27 . ( Solomon ) said : We shall see whether thou speakest truth or whether thou art of the liars .
28 . Go with this my letter and throw it down unto them ; then turn away and see what ( answer ) they return ,
29 . ( The Queen of Sheba ) said ( when she received the letter ) : O chieftains! Lo! there hath been thrown unto me a noble letter .
30 . Lo! it is from Solomon , and lo! it is : In the name of Allah the Beneficent , the Merciful ;
31 . Exalt not yourselves against me , but come unto me as those who surrender .
32 . She said : O chieftains! Pronounce for me in my case . I decide no case till ye are present with me .
33 . They said : We are lords of might and lords of great prowess , but it is for thee to command ; so consider what thou wilt command .
34 . She said : Lo! kings , when they enter a township , ruin it and make the honor of its people shame . Thus will they do .
35 . But lo! I am going to send a present unto them , and to see with what ( answer ) the messengers return .
36 . So when ( the envoy ) came unto Solomon , ( the King ) said : What! Would ye help me with wealth? But that which Allah hath given me is better than that which He hath given you . Nay it is ye ( and not I ) who exult in your gift .
37 . Return unto them . We verily shall come unto them with hosts that they cannot resist , and we shall drive them out from thence with shame , and they will be abased .
38 . He said : O chiefs! Which of you will bring me her throne before they come unto me , surrendering?
39 . A stalwart of the Jinn said : I will bring it thee before thou canst rise from thy place . Lo! I verily am strong and trusty for such work .
40 . One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said : I will bring it thee before thy gaze returneth unto thee . And when he saw it set in his presence , ( Solomon said : This is of the bounty of my Lord , that He may try me whether I give thanks or am ungrateful . Whosoever giveth thanks he only giveth thanks for ( the good of ) his own soul : and whosoever is ungrateful ( is ungrateful only to his own soul ' s hurt ) . For lo! my Lord is Absolute in independence , Bountiful .
41 . He said : Disguise her throne for her that we may see whether she will go aright or be of those not rightly guided .
42 . So , when she came , it was said ( unto her ) : Is thy throne like this? She said : ( It is ) as though it were the very one . And ( Solomon said ) : We were given the knowledge before her and we had surrendered ( to Allah ) .
43 . And ( all ) that she was wont to worship instead of Allah hindered her , for she came of disbelieving folk .
44 . It was said unto her : Enter the hall . And when she saw it she deemed it a pool and bared her legs . ( Solomon ) said : Lo! it is a hall , made smooth , of glass . She said : My Lord! Lo! I have wronged myself , and I surrender with Solomon unto Allah , the Lord of the Worlds .
45 . And We verily sent until Thamud their brother Salih , saying : Worship Allah . And lo! they ( then ) became two parties quarrelling .
46 . He said : O my people! Why will ye hasten on the evil rather than the good? Why will ye not ask pardon of Allah , that ye may receive mercy .
47 . They said : We augur evil of thee and those with thee . He said : Your evil augury is with Allah . Nay , but ye are folk that are being tested .
48 . And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not .
49 . They said : Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night , and afterward we will surely say unto his friend : We witnessed not the destruction of his household . And lo! we are truthtellers .
50 . So they plotted a plot : and We plotted a plot , while they perceived not .
51 . Then see the nature of the consequence of their plotting , for lo! We destroyed them and their people , every one .
52 . See , yonder are their dwellings empty and in ruins because they did wrong . Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a people who have knowledge .
53 . And we saved those who believed and used to ward off ( evil ) .
54 . And Lot! when he said unto his folk : will ye commit abomination knowingly?
55 . Must ye needs lust after men instead of women? Nay , but ye are folk who act senselessly .
56 . But the answer of his folk was naught save that they said : Expel the household of Lot from your township , for they ( forsooth ) are folk who would keep clean!
57 . Then we saved him and his household save his wife ; We destined her to be of those who stayed behind .
58 . And We rained a rain upon them . Dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned .
59 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Praise be to Allah , and peace be on His slaves whom He hath chosen! Is Allah best , or ( all ) that ye ascribe as partners ( unto Him ) ?
60 . Is not He ( best ) who created the heavens and the earth , and sendeth down for you water from the sky wherewith We cause to spring forth joyous orchards , whose trees it never hath been yours to cause to grow . Is there any God beside Allah? Nay , but they are folk who ascribe equals ( unto Him ) !
61 . Is not He ( best ) Who made the earth a fixed abode , and placed rivers in the folds thereof , and placed firm hills therein , and hath set a barrier between the two seas? Is there any God beside Allah? Nay , but most of them know not!
62 . Is not He ( best ) who answereth the wronged one when he crieth unto Him and removeth the evil , and hath made you viceroys of the earth? Is there any God beside Allah? Little do they reflect!
63 . Is not He ( best ) Who guideth you in the darkness of the land and the sea , He Who sendeth the winds as heralds of His mercy? Is there any God beside Allah? High exalted be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner ( unto Him ) !
64 . Is not He ( best ) , Who produceth creation , then reproduceth it , and Who provideth for you from the heaven and the earth? Is there any God beside Allah? Say : Bring your proof , if ye are truthful!
65 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : None in the heavens and the earth knoweth the Unseen save Allah ; and they know not when they will be raised ( again ) .
66 . Nay , but doth their knowledge reach to the Hereafter? Nay , for they are in doubt concerning it . Nay , for they cannot see It .
67 . Yet those who disbelieve say : when we have become dust like our fathers , shall we verily be brought forth ( again ) ?
68 . We were promised this , forsooth , we and our fathers . ( All ) this is naught but fables of the men of old .
69 . Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Travel in the land and see the nature of the sequel for the guilty!
70 . And grieve thou not for them , nor be in distress because of what they plot ( against thee ) .
71 . And they say : When ( will ) this promise ( be fulfilled ) , if ye are truthful?
72 . Say : It may be that a part of that which ye would hasten on is close behind you .
73 . Lo! thy Lord is full of bounty for mankind , but most of them do not give thanks .
74 . Lo! thy Lord knoweth surely all that their bosoms hide , and all that they proclaim .
75 . And there is nothing hidden in the heaven or the earth but it is in a clear Record .
76 . Lo! this Quran narrateth unto the Children of Israel most of that concerning which they differ .
77 . And lo! it is a guidance and a mercy for believers .
78 . Lo! thy Lord will judge between them of His wisdom , and He is the Mighty , the Wise .
79 . Therefor ( O Muhammad ) put thy trust in Allah , for thou ( standest ) on the plain Truth .
80 . Lo! thou canst not make the dead to hear , nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call when they have turned to flee ;
81 . Nor canst thou lead the blind out of their error . Thou canst make none to hear , save those who believe Our revelations and who have surrendered .
82 . And when the word is fulfilled concerning them , We shall bring forth a beast of the earth to speak unto them because mankind had not faith in Our revelations .
83 . And ( remind them of ) the Day when We shall gather out of every nation a host of those who denied Our revelations , and they will be set in array ;
84 . Till , when they come ( before their Lord ) , He will say : Did ye deny My revelations when ye could not compass them in knowledge , or what was it that ye did?
85 . And the Word will be fulfilled concerning them because they have done wrong , and they will not speak .
86 . Have they not seen how We have appointed the night that they may rest therein , and the day sight giving? Lo! therein verily are portents for a people who believe .
87 . And ( remind them of ) the Day when the Trumpet will be blown , and all who are in the heavens and the earth will start in fear , save him whom Allah willeth . And all come unto Him , humbled .
88 . And thou seest the hills thou deemest solid flying with the flight of clouds : the doing of Allah Who perfecteth all things . Lo! He is Informed of what ye do .
89 . Whoso bringeth a good deed will have better than its worth ; and such are safe from fear that Day .
90 . And whoso bringeth an ill deed , such will be flung down on their faces in the Fire . Are ye rewarded aught save what ye did?
91 . ( Say ) : I ( Muhammad ) am commanded only to serve the Lord of this land which He hath hallowed , and unto Whom all things belong . And I am commanded to be of those who surrender ( unto Him ) ,
92 . And to recite the Quran . And whoso goeth right , goeth right only for ( the good of ) his own soul ; and as for him who goeth astray ( Unto him ) say : Lo! I am only a warner .
93 . And say : Praise be to Allah who will show you His portents so that ye shall know them . And thy Lord is not unaware of what ye ( mortals ) do .
