In The Name Of Allah The Entirely Merciful The Especially Merciful
26:1 Ta, Seen, Meem.
26:2 These are the verses of the clear Book.
26:3 Perhaps, [O Muhammad], you would kill yourself with grief that they will not be believers.
26:4 If We willed, We could send down to them from the sky a sign for which their necks would remain humbled.
26:5 And no revelation comes to them anew from the Most Merciful except that they turn away from it.
26:6 For they have already denied, but there will come to them the news of that which they used to ridicule.
26:7 Did they not look at the earth - how much We have produced therein from every noble kind?
26:8 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:9 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:10 And [mention] when your Lord called Moses, [saying], "Go to the wrongdoing people –
26:11 The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear Allah ?"
26:12 He said, "My Lord, indeed I fear that they will deny me
26:13 And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron.
26:14 And they have upon me a [claim due to] sin, so I fear that they will kill me."
26:15 [ Allah ] said, "No. Go both of you with Our signs; indeed, We are with you, listening.
26:16 Go to Pharaoh and say, 'We are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds,
26:17 [Commanded to say], "Send with us the Children of Israel."'"
26:18 [Pharaoh] said, "Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you remained among us for years of your life?
26:19 And [then] you did your deed which you did, and you were of the ungrateful."
26:20 [Moses] said, "I did it, then, while I was of those astray.
26:21 So I fled from you when I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and prophethood and appointed me [as one] of the messengers.
26:22 And is this a favor of which you remind me - that you have enslaved the Children of Israel?"
26:23 Said Pharaoh, "And what is the Lord of the worlds?"
26:24 [Moses] said, "The Lord of the heavens and earth and that between them, if you should be convinced."
26:25 [Pharaoh] said to those around him, "Do you not hear?"
26:26 [Moses] said, "Your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers."
26:27 [Pharaoh] said, "Indeed, your 'messenger' who has been sent to you is mad."
26:28 [Moses] said, "Lord of the east and the west and that between them, if you were to reason."
26:29 [Pharaoh] said, "If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned."
26:30 [Moses] said, "Even if I brought you proof manifest?"
26:31 [Pharaoh] said, "Then bring it, if you should be of the truthful."
26:32 So [Moses] threw his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent manifest.
26:33 And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white for the observers.
26:34 [Pharaoh] said to the eminent ones around him, "Indeed, this is a learned magician.
26:35 He wants to drive you out of your land by his magic, so what do you advise?"
26:36 They said, "Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers
26:37 Who will bring you every learned, skilled magician."
26:38 So the magicians were assembled for the appointment of a well-known day.
26:39 And it was said to the people, "Will you congregate
26:40 That we might follow the magicians if they are the predominant?"
26:41 And when the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, "Is there indeed for us a reward if we are the predominant?"
26:42 He said, "Yes, and indeed, you will then be of those near [to me]."
26:43 Moses said to them, "Throw whatever you will throw."
26:44 So they threw their ropes and their staffs and said, "By the might of Pharaoh, indeed it is we who are predominant."
26:45 Then Moses threw his staff, and at once it devoured what they falsified.
26:46 So the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah ].
26:47 They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,
26:48 The Lord of Moses and Aaron."
26:49 [Pharaoh] said, "You believed Moses before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic, but you are going to know. I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all."
26:50 They said, "No harm. Indeed, to our Lord we will return.
26:51 Indeed, we aspire that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we were the first of the believers."
26:52 And We inspired to Moses, "Travel by night with My servants; indeed, you will be pursued."
26:53 Then Pharaoh sent among the cities gatherers
26:54 [And said], "Indeed, those are but a small band,
26:55 And indeed, they are enraging us,
26:56 And indeed, we are a cautious society... "
26:57 So We removed them from gardens and springs
26:58 And treasures and honorable station –
26:59 Thus. And We caused to inherit it the Children of Israel.
26:60 So they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 And when the two companies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, "Indeed, we are to be overtaken!"
26:62 [Moses] said, "No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me."
26:63 Then We inspired to Moses, "Strike with your staff the sea," and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.
26:64 And We advanced thereto the pursuers.
26:65 And We saved Moses and those with him, all together.
26:66 Then We drowned the others.
26:67 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:68 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:69 And recite to them the news of Abraham,
26:70 When he said to his father and his people, "What do you worship?"
26:71 They said, "We worship idols and remain to them devoted."
26:72 He said, "Do they hear you when you supplicate?
26:73 Or do they benefit you, or do they harm?"
26:74 They said, "But we found our fathers doing thus."
26:75 He said, "Then do you see what you have been worshipping,
26:76 You and your ancient forefathers?
26:77 Indeed, they are enemies to me, except the Lord of the worlds,
26:78 Who created me, and He [it is who] guides me.
26:79 And it is He who feeds me and gives me drink.
26:80 And when I am ill, it is He who cures me
26:81 And who will cause me to die and then bring me to life
26:82 And who I aspire that He will forgive me my sin on the Day of Recompense."
26:83 [And he said], "My Lord, grant me authority and join me with the righteous.
26:84 And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations.
26:85 And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure.
26:86 And forgive my father. Indeed, he has been of those astray.
26:87 And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected –
26:88 The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children
26:89 But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart."
26:90 And Paradise will be brought near [that Day] to the righteous.
26:91 And Hellfire will be brought forth for the deviators,
26:92 And it will be said to them, "Where are those you used to worship
26:93 Other than Allah ? Can they help you or help themselves?"
26:94 So they will be overturned into Hellfire, they and the deviators
26:95 And the soldiers of Iblees, all together.
26:96 They will say while they dispute therein,
26:97 "By Allah , we were indeed in manifest error
26:98 When we equated you with the Lord of the worlds.
26:99 And no one misguided us except the criminals.
26:100 So now we have no intercessors
26:101 And not a devoted friend.
26:102 Then if we only had a return [to the world] and could be of the believers... "
26:103 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:104 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:105 The people of Noah denied the messengers
26:106 When their brother Noah said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?
26:107 Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger.
26:108 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:109 And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:110 So fear Allah and obey me."
26:111 They said, "Should we believe you while you are followed by the lowest [class of people]?"
26:112 He said, "And what is my knowledge of what they used to do?
26:113 Their account is only upon my Lord, if you [could] perceive.
26:114 And I am not one to drive away the believers.
26:115 I am only a clear warner."
26:116 They said, "If you do not desist, O Noah, you will surely be of those who are stoned."
26:117 He said, "My Lord, indeed my people have denied me.
26:118 Then judge between me and them with decisive judgement and save me and those with me of the believers."
26:119 So We saved him and those with him in the laden ship.
26:120 Then We drowned thereafter the remaining ones.
26:121 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:122 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:123 'Aad denied the messengers
26:124 When their brother Hud said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?
26:125 26:125 Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger.
26:126 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:127 And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:128 Do you construct on every elevation a sign, amusing yourselves,
26:129 And take for yourselves palaces and fortresses that you might abide eternally?
26:130 And when you strike, you strike as tyrants.
26:131 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:132 And fear He who provided you with that which you know,
26:133 Provided you with grazing livestock and children
26:134 And gardens and springs.
26:135 Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a terrible day."
26:136 They said, "It is all the same to us whether you advise or are not of the advisors.
26:137 This is not but the custom of the former peoples,
26:138 And we are not to be punished."
26:139 And they denied him, so We destroyed them. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:140 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:141 Thamud denied the messengers
26:142 When their brother Salih said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?
26:143 Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger.
26:144 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:145 And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:146 Will you be left in what is here, secure [from death],
26:147 Within gardens and springs
26:148 And fields of crops and palm trees with softened fruit?
26:149 And you carve out of the mountains, homes, with skill.
26:150 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:151 And do not obey the order of the transgressors,
26:152 Who cause corruption in the land and do not amend."
26:153 They said, "You are only of those affected by magic.
26:154 You are but a man like ourselves, so bring a sign, if you should be of the truthful."
26:155 He said, "This is a she-camel. For her is a [time of] drink, and for you is a [time of] drink, [each] on a known day.
26:156 And do not touch her with harm, lest you be seized by the punishment of a terrible day."
26:157 But they hamstrung her and so became regretful.
26:158 And the punishment seized them. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:159 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:160 The people of Lot denied the messengers
26:161 When their brother Lot said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?
26:162 Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger.
26:163 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:164 And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:165 Do you approach males among the worlds
26:166 And leave what your Lord has created for you as mates? But you are a people transgressing."
26:167 They said, "If you do not desist, O Lot, you will surely be of those evicted."
26:168 He said, "Indeed, I am, toward your deed, of those who detest [it].
26:169 My Lord, save me and my family from [the consequence of] what they do."
26:170 So We saved him and his family, all,
26:171 Except an old woman among those who remained behind.
26:172 Then We destroyed the others.
26:173 And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned.
26:174 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:175 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:176 The companions of the thicket denied the messengers
26:177 When Shu'ayb said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?
26:178 Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger.
26:179 So fear Allah and obey me.
26:180 And I do not ask you for it any payment. My payment is only from the Lord of the worlds.
26:181 Give full measure and do not be of those who cause loss.
26:182 And weigh with an even balance.
26:183 And do not deprive people of their due and do not commit abuse on earth, spreading corruption.
26:184 And fear He who created you and the former creation."
26:185 They said, "You are only of those affected by magic.
26:186 You are but a man like ourselves, and indeed, we think you are among the liars.
26:187 So cause to fall upon us fragments of the sky, if you should be of the truthful."
26:188 He said, "My Lord is most knowing of what you do."
26:189 And they denied him, so the punishment of the day of the black cloud seized them. Indeed, it was the punishment of a terrible day.
26:190 Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
26:191 And indeed, your Lord - He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
26:192 And indeed, the Qur'an is the revelation of the Lord of the worlds.
26:193 The Trustworthy Spirit has brought it down
26:194 Upon your heart, [O Muhammad] - that you may be of the warners –
26:195 In a clear Arabic language.
26:196 And indeed, it is [mentioned] in the scriptures of former peoples.
26:197 And has it not been a sign to them that it is recognized by the scholars of the Children of Israel?
26:198 And even if We had revealed it to one among the foreigners
26:199 And he had recited it to them [perfectly], they would [still] not have been believers in it.
26:200 Thus have We inserted disbelief into the hearts of the criminals.
26:201 They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment.
26:202 And it will come to them suddenly while they perceive [it] not.
26:203 And they will say, "May we be reprieved?"
26:204 So for Our punishment are they impatient?
26:205 Then have you considered if We gave them enjoyment for years
26:206 And then there came to them that which they were promised?
26:207 They would not be availed by the enjoyment with which they were provided.
26:208 And We did not destroy any city except that it had warners
26:209 As a reminder; and never have We been unjust.
26:210 And the devils have not brought the revelation down.
26:211 It is not allowable for them, nor would they be able.
26:212 Indeed they, from [its] hearing, are removed.
26:213 So do not invoke with Allah another deity and [thus] be among the punished.
26:214 And warn, [O Muhammad], your closest kindred.
26:215 And lower your wing to those who follow you of the believers.
26:216 And if they disobey you, then say, "Indeed, I am disassociated from what you are doing."
26:217 And rely upon the Exalted in Might, the Merciful,
26:218 Who sees you when you arise
26:219 And your movement among those who prostrate.
26:220 Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
26:221 Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend?
26:222 They descend upon every sinful liar.
26:223 They pass on what is heard, and most of them are liars.
26:224 And the poets - [only] the deviators follow them;
26:225 Do you not see that in every valley they roam
26:226 And that they say what they do not do? –
26:227 Except those [poets] who believe and do righteous deeds and remember Allah often and defend [the Muslims] after they were wronged. And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned.
