بسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

قَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ {1}

[Pickthal 23:1] Successful indeed are the believers

الَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي صَلَاتِهِمْ خَاشِعُونَ {2}

[Pickthal 23:2] Who are humble in their prayers,

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَنِ اللَّغْوِ مُعْرِضُونَ {3}

[Pickthal 23:3] And who shun vain conversation,

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِلزَّكَاةِ فَاعِلُونَ {4}

[Pickthal 23:4] And who are payers of the poor-due;

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَافِظُونَ {5}

[Pickthal 23:5] And who guard their modesty –

إِلَّا عَلَىٰ أَزْوَاجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ {6}

[Pickthal 23:6] Save from their wives or the (slaves) that their right hands possess, for then they are not blameworthy,

فَمَنِ ابْتَغَىٰ وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْعَادُونَ {7}

[Pickthal 23:7] But whoso craveth beyond that, such are transgressors –

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَانَاتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَاعُونَ {8}

[Pickthal 23:8] And who are shepherds of their pledge and their covenant,

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَوَاتِهِمْ يُحَافِظُونَ {9}

[Pickthal 23:9] And who pay heed to their prayers.

أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْوَارِثُونَ {10}

[Pickthal 23:10] These are the heirs

الَّذِينَ يَرِثُونَ الْفِرْدَوْسَ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ {11}

[Pickthal 23:11] Who will inherit paradise. There they will abide.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ سُلَالَةٍ مِنْ طِينٍ {12}

[Pickthal 23:12] Verily We created man from a product of wet earth;

ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَكِينٍ {13}

[Pickthal 23:13] Then placed him as a drop (of seed) in a safe lodging;

ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ {14}

[Pickthal 23:14] 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 as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators!

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ لَمَيِّتُونَ {15}

[Pickthal 23:15] Then lo! after that ye surely die.

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ تُبْعَثُونَ {16}

[Pickthal 23:16] Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection ye are raised (again).

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا فَوْقَكُمْ سَبْعَ طَرَائِقَ وَمَا كُنَّا عَنِ الْخَلْقِ غَافِلِينَ {17}

[Pickthal 23:17] And We have created above you seven paths, and We are never unmindful of creation.

وَأَنْزَلْنَا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً بِقَدَرٍ فَأَسْكَنَّاهُ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۖ وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰ ذَهَابٍ بِهِ لَقَادِرُونَ {18}

[Pickthal 23:18] 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.

فَأَنْشَأْنَا لَكُمْ بِهِ جَنَّاتٍ مِنْ نَخِيلٍ وَأَعْنَابٍ لَكُمْ فِيهَا فَوَاكِهُ كَثِيرَةٌ وَمِنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ {19}

[Pickthal 23:19] Then We produce for you therewith gardens of date-palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you and whereof ye eat;

وَشَجَرَةً تَخْرُجُ مِنْ طُورِ سَيْنَاءَ تَنْبُتُ بِالدُّهْنِ وَصِبْغٍ لِلْآكِلِينَ {20}

[Pickthal 23:20] And a tree that springeth forth from Mount Sinai that groweth oil and relish for the eaters.

وَإِنَّ لَكُمْ فِي الْأَنْعَامِ لَعِبْرَةً ۖ نُسْقِيكُمْ مِمَّا فِي بُطُونِهَا وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَافِعُ كَثِيرَةٌ وَمِنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ {21}

[Pickthal 23:21] 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;

وَعَلَيْهَا وَعَلَى الْفُلْكِ تُحْمَلُونَ {22}

[Pickthal 23:22] And on them and on the ship ye are carried.

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ فَقَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُمْ مِنْ إِلَٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ ۖ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ {23}

[Pickthal 23:23] And We verily sent Noah unto his folk, and he said: O my people! Serve Allah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?

فَقَالَ الْمَلَأُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ قَوْمِهِ مَا هَٰذَا إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ يُرِيدُ أَنْ يَتَفَضَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَلَوْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَأَنْزَلَ مَلَائِكَةً مَا سَمِعْنَا بِهَٰذَا فِي آبَائِنَا الْأَوَّلِينَ {24}

[Pickthal 23:24] 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.

إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا رَجُلٌ بِهِ جِنَّةٌ فَتَرَبَّصُوا بِهِ حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ {25}

[Pickthal 23:25] He is only a man in whom is a madness, so watch him for a while.

قَالَ رَبِّ انْصُرْنِي بِمَا كَذَّبُونِ {26}

[Pickthal 23:26] He said: My Lord! Help me because they deny me.

فَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْهِ أَنِ اصْنَعِ الْفُلْكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا وَوَحْيِنَا فَإِذَا جَاءَ أَمْرُنَا وَفَارَ التَّنُّورُ ۙ فَاسْلُكْ فِيهَا مِنْ كُلٍّ زَوْجَيْنِ اثْنَيْنِ وَأَهْلَكَ إِلَّا مَنْ سَبَقَ عَلَيْهِ الْقَوْلُ مِنْهُمْ ۖ وَلَا تُخَاطِبْنِي فِي الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا ۖ إِنَّهُمْ مُغْرَقُونَ {27}

[Pickthal 23:27] 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.

فَإِذَا اسْتَوَيْتَ أَنْتَ وَمَنْ مَعَكَ عَلَى الْفُلْكِ فَقُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي نَجَّانَا مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ {28}

[Pickthal 23:28] 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!

وَقُلْ رَبِّ أَنْزِلْنِي مُنْزَلًا مُبَارَكًا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الْمُنْزِلِينَ {29}

[Pickthal 23:29] And say: My Lord! Cause me to land at a blessed landing-place, for Thou art Best of all who bring to land.

إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ وَإِنْ كُنَّا لَمُبْتَلِينَ {30}

[Pickthal 23:30] Lo! herein verily are portents, for lo! We are ever putting (mankind) to the test.

ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ قَرْنًا آخَرِينَ {31}

[Pickthal 23:31] Then, after them, We brought forth another generation;

فَأَرْسَلْنَا فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِنْهُمْ أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مَا لَكُمْ مِنْ إِلَٰهٍ غَيْرُهُ ۖ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ {32}

[Pickthal 23:32] And we sent among them a messenger of their own, saying: Serve Allah, Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?

وَقَالَ الْمَلَأُ مِنْ قَوْمِهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَكَذَّبُوا بِلِقَاءِ الْآخِرَةِ وَأَتْرَفْنَاهُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا مَا هَٰذَا إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ يَأْكُلُ مِمَّا تَأْكُلُونَ مِنْهُ وَيَشْرَبُ مِمَّا تَشْرَبُونَ {33}

[Pickthal 23:33] 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.

وَلَئِنْ أَطَعْتُمْ بَشَرًا مِثْلَكُمْ إِنَّكُمْ إِذًا لَخَاسِرُونَ {34}

[Pickthal 23:34] If ye were to obey a mortal like yourselves, then, lo! ye surely would be losers.

أَيَعِدُكُمْ أَنَّكُمْ إِذَا مِتُّمْ وَكُنْتُمْ تُرَابًا وَعِظَامًا أَنَّكُمْ مُخْرَجُونَ {35}

[Pickthal 23:35] Doth he promise you that you, when ye are dead and have become dust and bones, will (again) be brought forth?

هَيْهَاتَ هَيْهَاتَ لِمَا تُوعَدُونَ {36}

[Pickthal 23:36] Begone, begone, with that which ye are promised!

إِنْ هِيَ إِلَّا حَيَاتُنَا الدُّنْيَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحْيَا وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَبْعُوثِينَ {37}

[Pickthal 23:37] There is naught but our life of the world; we die and we live, and we shall not be raised (again).

إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا رَجُلٌ افْتَرَىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا وَمَا نَحْنُ لَهُ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ {38}

[Pickthal 23:38] He is only a man who hath invented a lie about Allah. We are not going to put faith in him.

قَالَ رَبِّ انْصُرْنِي بِمَا كَذَّبُونِ {39}

[Pickthal 23:39] He said: My Lord! Help me because they deny me.

قَالَ عَمَّا قَلِيلٍ لَيُصْبِحُنَّ نَادِمِينَ {40}

[Pickthal 23:40] He said: In a little while they surely will become repentant.

فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ الصَّيْحَةُ بِالْحَقِّ فَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ غُثَاءً ۚ فَبُعْدًا لِلْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ {41}

[Pickthal 23:41] So the (Awful) Cry overtook them rightfully, and We made them like as wreckage (that a torrent hurleth). A far removal for wrongdoing folk!

ثُمَّ أَنْشَأْنَا مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ قُرُونًا آخَرِينَ {42}

[Pickthal 23:42] Then after them We brought forth other generations.

مَا تَسْبِقُ مِنْ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلَهَا وَمَا يَسْتَأْخِرُونَ {43}

[Pickthal 23:43] No nation can outstrip its term, nor yet postpone it.

ثُمَّ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا تَتْرَىٰ ۖ كُلَّ مَا جَاءَ أُمَّةً رَسُولُهَا كَذَّبُوهُ ۚ فَأَتْبَعْنَا بَعْضَهُمْ بَعْضًا وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَحَادِيثَ ۚ فَبُعْدًا لِقَوْمٍ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ {44}

[Pickthal 23:44] 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!

ثُمَّ أَرْسَلْنَا مُوسَىٰ وَأَخَاهُ هَارُونَ بِآيَاتِنَا وَسُلْطَانٍ مُبِينٍ {45}

[Pickthal 23:45] Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our tokens and a clear warrant

إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ وَمَلَئِهِ فَاسْتَكْبَرُوا وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا عَالِينَ {46}

[Pickthal 23:46] Unto Pharaoh and his chiefs, but they scorned (them) and they were despotic folk.

فَقَالُوا أَنُؤْمِنُ لِبَشَرَيْنِ مِثْلِنَا وَقَوْمُهُمَا لَنَا عَابِدُونَ {47}

[Pickthal 23:47] And they said: Shall we put faith in two mortals like ourselves, and whose folk are servile unto us?

فَكَذَّبُوهُمَا فَكَانُوا مِنَ الْمُهْلَكِينَ {48}

[Pickthal 23:48] So they denied them, and became of those who were destroyed.

وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْكِتَابَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَهْتَدُونَ {49}

[Pickthal 23:49] And We verily gave Moses the Scripture, that haply they might go aright.

وَجَعَلْنَا ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَأُمَّهُ آيَةً وَآوَيْنَاهُمَا إِلَىٰ رَبْوَةٍ ذَاتِ قَرَارٍ وَمَعِينٍ {50}

[Pickthal 23:50] 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 watersprings.

يَا أَيُّهَا الرُّسُلُ كُلُوا مِنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَاعْمَلُوا صَالِحًا ۖ إِنِّي بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌ {51}

[Pickthal 23:51] O ye messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right. Lo! I am Aware of what ye do.

وَإِنَّ هَٰذِهِ أُمَّتُكُمْ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَأَنَا رَبُّكُمْ فَاتَّقُونِ {52}

[Pickthal 23:52] And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me.

فَتَقَطَّعُوا أَمْرَهُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ زُبُرًا ۖ كُلُّ حِزْبٍ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُونَ {53}

[Pickthal 23:53] But they (mankind) have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its tenets.

فَذَرْهُمْ فِي غَمْرَتِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ {54}

[Pickthal 23:54] So leave them in their error till a time.

أَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّمَا نُمِدُّهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ مَالٍ وَبَنِينَ {55}

[Pickthal 23:55] Think they that in the wealth and sons wherewith We provide them

نُسَارِعُ لَهُمْ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ ۚ بَلْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ {56}

[Pickthal 23:56] We hasten unto them with good things? Nay, but they perceive not.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ هُمْ مِنْ خَشْيَةِ رَبِّهِمْ مُشْفِقُونَ {57}

[Pickthal 23:57] Lo! those who go in awe for fear of their Lord.

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ يُؤْمِنُونَ {58}

[Pickthal 23:58] And those who believe in the revelations of their Lord,

وَالَّذِينَ هُمْ بِرَبِّهِمْ لَا يُشْرِكُونَ {59}

[Pickthal 23:59] And those who ascribe not partners unto their Lord,

وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْتُونَ مَا آتَوْا وَقُلُوبُهُمْ وَجِلَةٌ أَنَّهُمْ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ رَاجِعُونَ {60}

[Pickthal 23:60] And those who give that which they give with hearts afraid because they are about to return unto their Lord,

أُولَٰئِكَ يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَهُمْ لَهَا سَابِقُونَ {61}

[Pickthal 23:61] These race for the good things, and they shall win them in the race.

وَلَا نُكَلِّفُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۖ وَلَدَيْنَا كِتَابٌ يَنْطِقُ بِالْحَقِّ ۚ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ {62}

[Pickthal 23:62] 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.

بَلْ قُلُوبُهُمْ فِي غَمْرَةٍ مِنْ هَٰذَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْمَالٌ مِنْ دُونِ ذَٰلِكَ هُمْ لَهَا عَامِلُونَ {63}

[Pickthal 23:63] Nay, but their hearts are in ignorance of this (Qur’an), and they have other works, besides, which they are doing;

حَتَّىٰ إِذَا أَخَذْنَا مُتْرَفِيهِمْ بِالْعَذَابِ إِذَا هُمْ يَجْأَرُونَ {64}

[Pickthal 23:64] Till when We grasp their luxurious ones with the punishment, behold! they supplicate.

لَا تَجْأَرُوا الْيَوْمَ ۖ إِنَّكُمْ مِنَّا لَا تُنْصَرُونَ {65}

[Pickthal 23:65] Supplicate not this day! Assuredly ye will not be helped by Us.

قَدْ كَانَتْ آيَاتِي تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَكُنْتُمْ عَلَىٰ أَعْقَابِكُمْ تَنْكِصُونَ {66}

[Pickthal 23:66] My revelations were recited unto you, but ye used to turn back on your heels,

مُسْتَكْبِرِينَ بِهِ سَامِرًا تَهْجُرُونَ {67}

[Pickthal 23:67] In scorn thereof. Nightly did ye rave together.

أَفَلَمْ يَدَّبَّرُوا الْقَوْلَ أَمْ جَاءَهُمْ مَا لَمْ يَأْتِ آبَاءَهُمُ الْأَوَّلِينَ {68}

[Pickthal 23:68] Have they not pondered the Word, or hath that come unto them which came not unto their fathers of old?

أَمْ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا رَسُولَهُمْ فَهُمْ لَهُ مُنْكِرُونَ {69}

[Pickthal 23:69] Or know they not their messenger, and so reject him?

أَمْ يَقُولُونَ بِهِ جِنَّةٌ ۚ بَلْ جَاءَهُمْ بِالْحَقِّ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ لِلْحَقِّ كَارِهُونَ {70}

[Pickthal 23:70] 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.

وَلَوِ اتَّبَعَ الْحَقُّ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ لَفَسَدَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ ۚ بَلْ أَتَيْنَاهُمْ بِذِكْرِهِمْ فَهُمْ عَنْ ذِكْرِهِمْ مُعْرِضُونَ {71}

[Pickthal 23:71] 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.

أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ خَرْجًا فَخَرَاجُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ {72}

[Pickthal 23:72] 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.

وَإِنَّكَ لَتَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ {73}

[Pickthal 23:73] And lo! thou summonest them indeed unto a straight path.

وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ عَنِ الصِّرَاطِ لَنَاكِبُونَ {74}

[Pickthal 23:74] And lo! those who believe not in the Hereafter are indeed astray from the path.

وَلَوْ رَحِمْنَاهُمْ وَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِمْ مِنْ ضُرٍّ لَلَجُّوا فِي طُغْيَانِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ {75}

[Pickthal 23:75] Though We had mercy on them and relieved them of the harm afflicting them, they still would wander blindly on in their contumacy.

وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَاهُمْ بِالْعَذَابِ فَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ {76}

[Pickthal 23:76] Already have We grasped them with punishment, but they humble not themselves unto their Lord, nor do they pray,

حَتَّىٰ إِذَا فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ بَابًا ذَا عَذَابٍ شَدِيدٍ إِذَا هُمْ فِيهِ مُبْلِسُونَ {77}

[Pickthal 23:77] Until, when We open for them the gate of extreme punishment, behold! they are aghast thereat.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَنْشَأَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ ۚ قَلِيلًا مَا تَشْكُرُونَ {78}

[Pickthal 23:78] He it is Who hath created for you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye!

وَهُوَ الَّذِي ذَرَأَكُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَإِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ {79}

[Pickthal 23:79] And He it is Who hath sown you broadcast in the earth, and unto Him ye will be gathered.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَلَهُ اخْتِلَافُ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ {80}

[Pickthal 23:80] And He it is Who giveth life and causeth death, and His is the difference of night and day. Have ye then no sense?

بَلْ قَالُوا مِثْلَ مَا قَالَ الْأَوَّلُونَ {81}

[Pickthal 23:81] Nay, but they say the like of that which said the men of old;

قَالُوا أَإِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًا وَعِظَامًا أَإِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ {82}

[Pickthal 23:82] They say: When we are dead and have become (mere) dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again?

لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا نَحْنُ وَآبَاؤُنَا هَٰذَا مِنْ قَبْلُ إِنْ هَٰذَا إِلَّا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ {83}

[Pickthal 23:83] We were already promised this, we and our forefathers. Lo! this is naught but fables of the men of old.

قُلْ لِمَنِ الْأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهَا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ {84}

[Pickthal 23:84] Say: Unto Whom (belongeth) the earth and whosoever is therein, if ye have knowledge?

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ {85}

[Pickthal 23:85] They will say: Unto Allah. Say: Will ye not then remember?

قُلْ مَنْ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ {86}

[Pickthal 23:86] Say: Who is Lord of the seven heavens, and Lord of the Tremendous Throne?

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ {87}

[Pickthal 23:87] They will say: Unto Allah (all that belongeth). Say: Will ye not then keep duty (unto Him)?

قُلْ مَنْ بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ يُجِيرُ وَلَا يُجَارُ عَلَيْهِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ {88}

[Pickthal 23:88] Say: In Whose hand is the dominion over all things and He protecteth, while against Him there is no protection, if ye have knowledge?

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ فَأَنَّىٰ تُسْحَرُونَ {89}

[Pickthal 23:89] They will say: Unto Allah (all that belongeth). Say: How then are ye bewitched?

بَلْ أَتَيْنَاهُمْ بِالْحَقِّ وَإِنَّهُمْ لَكَاذِبُونَ {90}

[Pickthal 23:90] Nay, but We have brought them the Truth, and lo! they are liars.

مَا اتَّخَذَ اللَّهُ مِنْ وَلَدٍ وَمَا كَانَ مَعَهُ مِنْ إِلَٰهٍ ۚ إِذًا لَذَهَبَ كُلُّ إِلَٰهٍ بِمَا خَلَقَ وَلَعَلَا بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ ۚ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ {91}

[Pickthal 23:91] 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.

عَالِمِ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ فَتَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ {92}

[Pickthal 23:92] Knower of the Invisible and the Visible! and Exalted be He over all that they ascribe as partners (unto Him)!

قُلْ رَبِّ إِمَّا تُرِيَنِّي مَا يُوعَدُونَ {93}

[Pickthal 23:93] Say: My Lord! If Thou shouldst show me that which they are promised.

رَبِّ فَلَا تَجْعَلْنِي فِي الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ {94}

[Pickthal 23:94] My Lord! then set me not among the wrongdoing folk.

وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰ أَنْ نُرِيَكَ مَا نَعِدُهُمْ لَقَادِرُونَ {95}

[Pickthal 23:95] And verily We are Able to show thee that which We have promised them.

ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ السَّيِّئَةَ ۚ نَحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَصِفُونَ {96}

[Pickthal 23:96] Repel evil with that which is better. We are Best Aware of that which they allege.

وَقُلْ رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِينِ {97}

[Pickthal 23:97] And say: My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones,

وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ رَبِّ أَنْ يَحْضُرُونِ {98}

[Pickthal 23:98] And I seek refuge in Thee, my Lord, lest they be present with me,

حَتَّىٰ إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدَهُمُ الْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ارْجِعُونِ {99}

[Pickthal 23:99] Until, when death cometh unto one of them, he saith: My Lord! Send me back,

لَعَلِّي أَعْمَلُ صَالِحًا فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ ۚ كَلَّا ۚ إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَائِلُهَا ۖ وَمِنْ وَرَائِهِمْ بَرْزَخٌ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ {100}

[Pickthal 23:100] 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.

فَإِذَا نُفِخَ فِي الصُّورِ فَلَا أَنْسَابَ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ وَلَا يَتَسَاءَلُونَ {101}

[Pickthal 23:101] And when the trumpet is blown there will be no kinship among them that day, nor will they ask of one another.

فَمَنْ ثَقُلَتْ مَوَازِينُهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ {102}

[Pickthal 23:102] Then those whose scales are heavy, they are the successful.

وَمَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَازِينُهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ خَسِرُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ فِي جَهَنَّمَ خَالِدُونَ {103}

[Pickthal 23:103] And those whose scales are light are those who lose their souls, in hell abiding.

تَلْفَحُ وُجُوهَهُمُ النَّارُ وَهُمْ فِيهَا كَالِحُونَ {104}

[Pickthal 23:104] The fire burneth their faces, and they are glum therein.

أَلَمْ تَكُنْ آيَاتِي تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَكُنْتُمْ بِهَا تُكَذِّبُونَ {105}

[Pickthal 23:105] (It will be said): Were not My revelations recited unto you, and then ye used to deny them?

قَالُوا رَبَّنَا غَلَبَتْ عَلَيْنَا شِقْوَتُنَا وَكُنَّا قَوْمًا ضَالِّينَ {106}

[Pickthal 23:106] They will say: Our Lord! Our evil fortune conquered us, and we were erring folk.

رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْهَا فَإِنْ عُدْنَا فَإِنَّا ظَالِمُونَ {107}

[Pickthal 23:107] Our Lord! Oh, bring us forth from hence! If we return (to evil) then indeed we shall be wrong-doers.

قَالَ اخْسَئُوا فِيهَا وَلَا تُكَلِّمُونِ {108}

[Pickthal 23:108] He saith: Begone therein, and speak not unto Me.

إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَرِيقٌ مِنْ عِبَادِي يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا آمَنَّا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِينَ {109}

[Pickthal 23:109] 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;

فَاتَّخَذْتُمُوهُمْ سِخْرِيًّا حَتَّىٰ أَنْسَوْكُمْ ذِكْرِي وَكُنْتُمْ مِنْهُمْ تَضْحَكُونَ {110}

[Pickthal 23:110] But ye chose them for a laughing-stock until they caused you to forget remembrance of Me, while ye laughed at them.

إِنِّي جَزَيْتُهُمُ الْيَوْمَ بِمَا صَبَرُوا أَنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْفَائِزُونَ {111}

[Pickthal 23:111] Lo! I have rewarded them this day forasmuch as they were steadfast in that they, even they, are the triumphant.

قَالَ كَمْ لَبِثْتُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ عَدَدَ سِنِينَ {112}

[Pickthal 23:112] He will say: How long tarried ye in the earth, counting by years?

قَالُوا لَبِثْنَا يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْمٍ فَاسْأَلِ الْعَادِّينَ {113}

[Pickthal 23:113] They will say: We tarried by a day or part of a day. Ask of those who keep count!

قَالَ إِنْ لَبِثْتُمْ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا ۖ لَوْ أَنَّكُمْ كُنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ {114}

[Pickthal 23:114] He will say: Ye tarried but a little if ye only knew.

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ {115}

[Pickthal 23:115] Deemed ye then that We had created you for naught, and that ye would not be returned unto Us?

فَتَعَالَى اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ ۖ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ {116}

[Pickthal 23:116] Now Allah be Exalted, the True King! There is no Allah save Him, the Lord of the Throne of Grace.

وَمَنْ يَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا آخَرَ لَا بُرْهَانَ لَهُ بِهِ فَإِنَّمَا حِسَابُهُ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُفْلِحُ الْكَافِرُونَ {117}

[Pickthal 23:117] 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.

وَقُلْ رَبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّاحِمِينَ {118}

[Pickthal 23:118] And (O Muhammad) say: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.
