In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Ha . Mim .
2 . The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah , the Mighty , the Knower ,
3 . The Forgiver of sin , the Acceptor of repentance , the Stern in punishment , the Bountiful . There is no God save Him . Unto Him is the journeying .
4 . None argue concerning the revelations of Allah save those who disbelieve , so let not their turn of fortune in the land deceive thee ( O Muhammad ) .
5 . The folk of Noah and the factions after them denied ( their messengers ) before these , and every nation purposed to seize their messenger and argued falsely , ( thinking ) thereby to refute the Truth . Then I seized them , and how ( awful ) was My punishment .
6 . Thus was the word of thy Lord concerning those who disbelieve fulfilled : that they are owners of the Fire .
7 . Those who bear the Throne , and all who are round about it , hymn the praises of their Lord and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who believe ( saying ) : Our Lord! Thou comprehendest all things in mercy and knowledge , therefor forgive those who repent and follow Thy way . Ward of from them the punishment of hell .
8 . Our Lord! And make them enter the Gardens of Eden which thou hast promised them , with such of their fathers and their wives and their descendants as do right . Lo! Thou , only Thou , art the Mighty , the Wise .
9 . And ward off from them ill deeds ; and he from whom Thou wardest off ill deeds that day , him verily hast Thou taken into mercy . That is the supreme triumph .
10 . Lo! ( on that day ) those who disbelieve are informed by proclamation : Verily Allah ' s abhorrence is more terrible than your abhorrence one of another , when ye were called unto the faith but did refuse .
11 . They say : Our Lord! Twice hast Thou made us die , and twice hast Thou made us live . Now we confess our sins . Is there any way to go out?
12 . ( It is said unto them ) : This is ( your plight ) because , when Allah only was invoked , ye disbelieved , but when some partner was ascribed to Him ye were believing . But the command belongeth only to Allah , the Sublime , the Majestic .
13 . He it is who showeth you His portents , and sendeth down for you provision from the sky . None payeth heed save him who turneth ( unto Him ) repentant .
14 . Therefor ( O believers ) pray unto Allah , making religion pure for Him ( only ) , however much the disbelievers be averse
15 . The Exalter of Ranks , the Lord of the Throne . He casteth the Spirit of His command upon whom He will of His slaves , that He may warn of the Day of Meeting ,
16 . The day when they come forth , nothing of them being hidden from Allah . Whose is the sovereignty this day? It is Allah ' s , the One , the Almighty .
17 . This day is each soul requited that which it hath earned ; no wrong ( is done ) this day . Lo! Allah is swift at reckoning .
18 . Warn them ( O Muhammad ) of the Day of the approaching ( doom ) , when the hearts will be choking the throats , ( when ) there will be no friend for the wrong doers , nor any intercessor who will be heard .
19 . He knoweth the traitor of the eyes , and that which the bosoms hide .
20 . Allah judgeth with truth , while those to whom they cry instead of Him judge not at all . Lo! Allah , He is the Nearer , the Seer .
21 . Have they not travelled in the land to see the nature of the consequence for those who disbelieved before them? They were mightier than these in power and ( in the ) traces ( which they left behind them ) in the earth . Yet Allah sewed them for their sins , and they had no protector from Allah .
22 . That was because their messengers kept bringing them clear proofs ( of Allah ' s sovereignty ) but they disbelieved ; so Allah seized them . Lo! He is Strong , Severe in punishment .
23 . And verily We sent Moses with Our revelations and a clear warrant
24 . Unto Pharaoh and Haman and Korah , but they said : A lying sorcerer!
25 . And when he brought them the Truth from Our presence , they said : Slay the sons of those who believe with him , and spare their women . But the plot of disbelievers is in naught but error .
26 . And Pharaoh said : Suffer me to kill Moses , and let him cry unto his Lord . Lo! I fear that he will alter your religion or that he will cause confusion in the land .
27 . Moses said : Lo! I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every scorner who believeth not in a Day of Reckoning .
28 . And a believing man of Pharaoh ' s family , who hid his faith , said : Would ye kill a man because he saith : My Lord is Allah , and hath brought you clear proofs from your Lord? If he is lying , then his lie is upon him ; and if he is truthful then some of that wherewith he threateneth you will strike you . Lo! Allah guideth not one who is a prodigal , a liar .
29 . O my people! Yours is the kingdom today , ye being uppermost in the land . But who would save us from the wrath of Allah should it reach us? Pharaoh said : I do but show you what I think , and I do but guide you to wise policy .
30 . And he who believed said : O my people! Lo! I fear for you a fate like that of the factions ( of old ) ;
31 . A plight like that of Noah ' s folk , and Aad and Thamud , and those after them , and Allah willeth no injustice for ( His ) slaves .
32 . And , O my people! Lo! I fear for a Day of Summoning ,
33 . A day when ye will turn to flee , having no preserver from Allah : and he whom Allah sendeth astray , for him there is no guide .
34 . And verily Joseph brought you of old clear proofs , yet ye ceased not to be in doubt concerning what be brought you till , when he died , he said : Allah will not send any messenger after him . Thus Allah deceiveth him who is a prodigal , a doubter .
35 . Those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah without any warrant that hath come unto them , it is greatly hateful in the sight of Allah and in the sight of those who believe . Thus doth Allah print on every arrogant , disdainful heart .
36 . And Pharaoh said : O Haman! Build for me a tower that haply I may reach the roads ,
37 . The roads of the heavens , and may look upon the God of Moses , though verily I think him a liar . Thus was the evil that he did made fair seeming unto Pharaoh , and he was debarred from the ( right ) way . The plot of Pharaoh ended but in ruin .
38 . And he who believed said : O my people! Follow , me . I will show you the way of right conduct .
39 . O my people! Lo! this life of the world is but a passing comfort , and lo! the Hereafter , that is the enduring home .
40 . Whoso doeth an ill deed , he will be repaid the like thereof , while whoso doeth right , whether male or female , and is a believer , ( all ) such will enter the Garden , where they will be nourished without stint .
41 . And , O my people! What aileth me that I call you unto deliverance when ye call me unto the Fire?
42 . Ye call me to disbelieve in Allah and ascribe unto Him as partners that whereof I have no knowledge , while I call you unto the Mighty , the Forgiver .
43 . Assuredly that whereunto ye call me hath no claim in the world or in the Hereafter , and our return will be unto Allah , and the prodigals will be owners of the fire .
44 . And ye will remember what I say unto you . I confide my cause unto Allah . Lo! Allah is Seer of ( His ) slaves .
45 . So Allah warded off from him the evils which they plotted , while a dreadful doom encompassed Pharaoh ' s folk .
46 . The Fire ; they are exposed to it morning and evening ; and on the day when the Hour upriseth ( it is said ) : Cause Pharaoh ' s folk to enter the most awful doom .
47 . And when they wrangle in the fire , the weak say unto those who were proud : Lo! we were a following unto you : will ye therefor rid us of a portion of the Fire?
48 . Those who were proud say : Lo! we are all ( together ) herein . Lo! Allah hath judged between ( His ) slaves .
49 . And those in the Fire say unto the guards of hell : Entreat your Lord that He relieve us of a day of the torment .
50 . They say : Came not your messengers unto you with clear proofs? They say : Yea , verily . They say : Then do ye pray , although the prayer of disbelievers is in vain .
51 . Lo! We verily do help Our messengers , and those who believe , in the life of the world and on the day when the witnesses arise ,
52 . The day when their excuse availeth not the evil doers , and theirs is the curse , and theirs the ill abode .
53 . And we verily gave Moses the guidance , and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture ,
54 . A guide and a reminder for men of understanding .
55 . Then have patience ( O Muhammad ) . Lo! the promise of Allah is true . And ask forgiveness of thy sin , and hymn the praise of thy Lord at fall of night and in the early hours .
56 . Lo! those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah without a warrant having come unto them , there is naught else in their breasts save pride which they will never attain . So take thou refuge in Allah . Lo! He , only He , is the Hearer , the Seer .
57 . Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind ; but most of mankind know not .
58 . And the blind man and the seer are not equal , neither are those who believe and do good works ( equal with ) the evil doer . Little do ye reflect!
59 . Lo! the Hour is surely coming , there is no doubt thereof ; yet most of mankind believe not .
60 . And your Lord hath said : Pray unto me and I will hear your prayer . Lo! those who scorn My service , they will enter hell , disgraced .
61 . Allah it is Who hath appointed for you night that ye may rest therein , and day for seeing . Lo! Allah is a Lord of bounty for mankind , yet most of mankind give not thanks .
62 . Such is Allah , your Lord , the Creator of all things . There is no God save Him . How then are ye perverted?
63 . Thus are they perverted who deny the revelations of Allah .
64 . Allah it is Who appointed for you the earth for a dwelling place and the sky for a canopy , and fashioned you and perfected your shapes , and hath provided you with good things . Such is Allah , your Lord . Then blessed be Allah , the Lord of the Worlds!
65 . He is the Living One . There is no God save Him . So pray unto Him , making religion pure for Him ( only ) . Praise be to Allah , the Lord of the Worlds!
66 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : I am forbidden to worship those unto whom ye cry beside Allah since there have come unto me clear proofs from my Lord , and I am commanded to surrender to the Lord of the Worlds .
67 . He it is Who created you from dust , then from a drop ( of seed ) then from a clot , then bringeth you forth as a child , then ( ordaineth ) that ye attain full strength and afterward that ye become old men though some among you die before and that ye reach an appointed term , that haply ye may understand .
68 . He it is who quickeneth and giveth death . When He ordaineth a thing , He saith unto it only : Be! and it is .
69 . Hast thou not seen those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah , how they are turned away?
70 . Those who deny the Scripture and that wherewith we send Our messengers . But they will come to know ,
71 . When carcans are about their necks and chains . They are dragged
72 . Through boiling waters ; then they are thrust into the Fire .
73 . Then it is said unto them : Where are ( all ) that ye used to make partners ( in the Sovereignty )
74 . Beside Allah? They say : They have failed us : but we used not to pray to anything before . Thus doth Allah send astray the disbelievers ( in His guidance ) .
75 . ( And it is said unto them ) : This is because ye exulted in the earth without right , and because ye were petulant .
76 . Enter ye the gates of hell , to dwell therein . Evil is the habitation of the scornful .
77 . Then have patience ( O Muhammad ) . Lo! the promise of Allah is true . And whether we let thee see a part of that which We promise them , or ( whether ) We cause thee to die , still unto us they will be brought back .
78 . Verily We sent messengers before thee , among them those of whom We have told thee , and some of whom We have not told thee ; and it was not given to any messenger that he should bring a portent cave by Allah ' s leave , but when Allah ' s commandment cometh ( the cause ) is judged aright , and the followers of vanity will then be lost .
79 . Allah it is Who hath appointed for you cattle , that ye may ride on some of them , and eat of some
80 . ( Many ) benefits ye have from them and that ye may satisfy by their means a need that is in your breasts , and may be borne upon them as upon the ship .
81 . And He showeth you His tokens . Which , then , of the tokens of Allah do ye deny?
82 . Have they not travelled in the land to see the nature of the consequence for those before them? They were more numerous than these , and mightier in power and ( in the ) traces ( which they left behind them ) in the earth . But all that they used to earn availed them not .
83 . And when their messengers brought them clear proofs ( of Allah ' s Sovereignty ) they exulted in the knowledge they ( themselves ) possessed . And that which they were wont to mock befell them .
84 . Then , when they saw Our doom , they said : We believe in Allah only and reject ( all ) that we used to associate ( with Him ) .
85 . But their faith could not avail them when they saw Our doom . This is Allah ' s law which hath ever taken course for his Bondsmen . And then the disbelievers will be ruined .
