In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . By those who set the ranks in battle order

2 . And those who drive away ( the wicked ) with reproof

3 . And those who read ( the Word ) for a reminder ,

4 . Lo! thy Lord is surely One .

5 . Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them , and Lord of the sun ' s risings .

6 . Lo! We have adorned the lowest heaven with an ornament , the planets :

7 . With security from every froward devil .

8 . They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs for they are pelted from every side ,

9 . Outcast , and theirs is a perpetual torment ;

10 . Save him who snatcheth a fragment , and there pursueth him a piercing flame .

11 . Then ask them ( O Muhammad ) : Are they stronger as a creation , or those ( others ) whom We have created? Lo! We created them of plastic clay .

12 . Nay , but thou dost marvel when they mock

13 . And heed not when they are reminded ,

14 . And seek to scoff when they behold a portent

15 . And they say : lo! this is mere magic ;

16 . When we are dead and have become dust and bones , shall we then , forsooth , be raised ( again ) ?

17 . And our forefathers?

18 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Yea , in truth ; and ye will be brought low .

19 . There is but one Shout , and lo! they behold

20 . And say : Ah , woe for us! This is the Day of Judgment .

21 . This is the Day of Separation , which ye used to deny .

22 . ( And it is said unto the angels ) : Assemble those who did wrong , together with their wives and what they used to worship

23 . Instead of Allah , and lead them to the path to hell ;

24 . And stop them , for they must be questioned .

25 . What aileth you that ye help not one another?

26 . Nay , but this day they make full submission .

27 . And some of them draw near unto others , mutually questioning .

28 . They say : Lo! ye used to come unto us , imposing , ( swearing that ye spoke the truth ) .

29 . They answer : Nay , but ye ( yourselves ) were not believers .

30 . We had no power over you , but ye were wayward folk .

31 . Now the Word of our Lord hath been fulfilled concerning us . Lo! we are about to taste ( the doom ) .

32 . Thus we misled you . Lo! we were ( ourselves ) astray .

33 . Then lo! this day they ( both ) are sharers in the doom .

34 . Lo! thus deal We with the guilty .

35 . For when it was said unto them , There is no god save Allah , they were scornful

36 . And said : Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet?

37 . Nay , but he brought the Truth , and he confirmed those sent ( before him ) .

38 . Lo! ( now ) verily ye taste the painful doom

39 . Ye are requited naught save what ye did

40 . Save single minded slaves of Allah ;

41 . For them there is a known provision ,

42 . Fruits . . And they will be honored

43 . In the Gardens of delight ,

44 . On couches facing one another

45 . A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them ,

46 . White , delicious to the drinkers ,

47 . Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby .

48 . And with them are those of modest gaze , with lovely eyes ,

49 . ( Pure ) as they were hidden eggs ( of the ostrich ) .

50 . And some of them draw near unto others , mutually questioning .

51 . A speaker of them saith : Lo! I had a comrade

52 . Who used to say : Art thou in truth of those who put faith ( in his words ) ?

53 . Can we , when we are dead and have become mere dust and bones , can we ( then ) verily be brought to book?

54 . He saith : Will ye look?

55 . Then looketh he and seeth him in the depth of hell .

56 . He saith : By Allah , thou verily didst all but cause my ruin ,

57 . And had it not been for the favor of my Lord , I too had been of those haled forth ( to doom ) .

58 . Are we then not to die

59 . Saving our former death , and are we not to he punished?

60 . Lo! this is the supreme triumph .

61 . For the like of this , then , let the workers work .

62 . Is this better as a welcome , or the tree of Zaqqam?

63 . Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong doers .

64 . Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell

65 . Its crop is as it were the heads of devils

66 . And lo! they verily must eat thereof , and fill ( their ) bellies therewith .

67 . And afterward , lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling water

68 . And afterward , lo! their return is surely unto hell .

69 . They indeed found their fathers astray ,

70 . But they make haste ( to follow ) in their footsteps .

71 . And verily most of the men of old went astray before them ,

72 . And verily We sent among them warners .

73 . Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned ,

74 . Save singled minded slaves of Allah .

75 . And Noah verily prayed unto Us , and gracious was the Hearer of his prayer

76 . And We saved him and his household from the great distress ,

77 . And made his seed the survivors ,

78 . And left for him among the later folk ( the salutation ) :

79 . Peace be unto Noah among the peoples!

80 . Lo! thus do We reward the good .

81 . Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves .

82 . Then We did drown the others .

83 . And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraham

84 . When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart ;

85 . When he said unto his father and his folk : What is it that ye worship?

86 . Is it a falsehood gods beside Allah that ye desire?

87 . What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds?

88 . And he glanced a glance at the stars

89 . Then said : Lo! I feel sick!

90 . And they turned their backs and went away from him

91 . Then turned he to their gods and said : Will ye not eat?

92 . What aileth you that ye speak not?

93 . Then he attacked them , striking with his right hand .

94 . And ( his people ) came toward him , hastening .

95 . He said : Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carve

96 . When Allah hath created you and what ye make?

97 . They said : Build for him a building and fling him in the red hot fire .

98 . And they designed a snare for him , but We made them the undermost .

99 . And he said : Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me

100 . My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous .

101 . So We gave him tidings of a gentle son .

102 . And when ( his son ) was old enough to walk with him , ( Abraham ) said : O my dear son , I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee . So look , what thinkest thou? He said : O my father! Do that which thou art commanded . Allah willing , thou shalt find me of the steadfast .

103 . Then , when they had both surrendered ( to Allah ) , and he had flung him down upon his face ,

104 . We called unto him : O Abraham :

105 . Thou hast already fulfilled the vision . Lo! thus do We reward the good .

106 . Lo! that verily was a clear test .

107 . Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim .

108 . And We left for him among the later folk ( the salutation ) :

109 . Peace be unto Abraham!

110 . Thus do We reward the good .

111 . Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves .

112 . And We gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac , a Prophet of the righteous .

113 . And We blessed him and Isaac . And of their seed are some who do good , and some who plainly wrong themselves .

114 . And We verily gave grace unto Moses and Aaron ,

115 . And saved them and their people from the great distress ,

116 . And helped them so that they became the victors .

117 . And We gave them the clear Scripture

118 . And showed them the right path .

119 . And We left for them , among the later folk ( the salutation ) :

120 . Peace be unto Moses and Aaron!

121 . Lo! thus do We reward the good .

122 . Lo! they are two of our believing slaves .

123 . And lo! Elias was of those sent ( to warn )

124 . When he said unto his folk : Will ye not ward off ( evil ) ?

125 . Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the best of Creators ,

126 . Allah , your Lord and Lord of your forefathers?

127 . But they denied him , so they surely will be haled forth ( to the doom )

128 . Save single minded slaves of Allah .

129 . And we left for him among the later folk ( the salutation ) :

130 . Peace be unto Elias!

131 . Lo! thus do We reward the good .

132 . Lo! he is one of our believing slaves .

133 . And lo! Lot verily was of those sent ( to warn ) ,

134 . When We saved him and his household , every one ,

135 . Save an old woman among those who stayed behind ;

136 . Then We destroyed the others .

137 . And Lo! ye verily pass by ( the ruin of ) them in the morning

138 . And at night time ; have ye then no sense?

139 . And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent ( to warn )

140 . When he fled unto the laden ship ,

141 . And then drew lots and was of those rejected ;

142 . And the fish swallowed him while be was blameworthy ;

143 . And had he not been one of those who glorify ( Allah )

144 . He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised ;

145 . Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick ;

146 . And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him ;

147 . And We sent him to a hundred thousand ( folk ) or more

148 . And they believed , therefor We gave them comfort for a while .

149 . Now ask them ( O Muhammad ) : Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons?

150 . Or created We the angels females while they were present?

151 . Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say :

152 . Allah hath begotten . And lo! verily they tell a lie .

153 . ( And again of their falsehood ) : He hath preferred daughters to sons

154 . What aileth you? How judge ye?

155 . Will ye not then reflect?

156 . Or have ye a clear warrant?

157 . Then produce your writ , if ye are truthful .

158 . And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn , whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before ( Him ) .

159 . Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute ( unto Him ) ,

160 . Save single minded slaves of Allah .

161 . Lo! verily , ye and that which ye worship ,

162 . Ye cannot excite ( anyone ) against Him

163 . Save him who is to burn in hell .

164 . There is not one of Us but hath his known position .

165 . Lo! We , even We are they who set the ranks .

166 . Lo! We , even We are they who hymn His praise

167 . And indeed they used to say :

168 . If we had but a reminder from the men of old

169 . We would be single minded slaves of Allah .

170 . Yet ( now that it is come ) the , disbelieve therein : but they will come to know .

171 . And verily Our word went forth of old unto Our bondmen sent ( to warn )

172 . That they verily would be helped ,

173 . And that Our host , they verily would be the victors .

174 . So withdraw from them ( O Muhammad ) awhile ,

175 . And watch , for they will ( soon ) see .

176 . Would they hasten on Our doom?

177 . But when it cometh home to them , then it will be a hapless morn for those who have been warned .

178 . Withdraw from them awhile

179 . And watch , for they will ( soon ) see .

180 . Glorified be thy Lord , the Lord of Majesty , from that which they attribute ( unto Him )

181 . And peace be unto those sent ( to warn ) .

182 . And praise be to Allah , Lord of the Worlds!
