In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Allah created the heavens, earth and all that lies between them to manifest the truth and Those deities to whom Mushrikin invoke are not even aware that they are being invoked
1 Ha Mim. 4774
2 The revelation of the Book is from Allah the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom. 4775
3 We created not the heavens and the earth and all between them but for just ends and for a term appointed: but those who reject Faith turn away from that whereof they are warned. 4776
4 Say: "Do ye see what it is ye invoke besides Allah? Show me what it is they have created on earth or have they a share in the heavens? Bring me a Book (revealed) before this or any remnant of knowledge (ye may have) if ye are telling the truth!" 4777 4778
5 And who is more astray than one who invokes besides Allah such as will not answer him to the Day of Judgement and who (in fact) are unconscious of their call (to them)? 4779
6 And when mankind are gathered together (at the Resurrection) they will be hostile to them and reject their worship (altogether)!
Al-Quran is the word of Allah, not the Prophet and Prophet is but a plain Warner
7 When Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them the Unbelievers say of the Truth when it comes to them: "This is evident sorcery!" 4780
8 Or do they say "He has forged it"? Say: "Had I forged it then can ye obtain no single (blessing) for me from Allah. He knows best of that whereof ye talk (so glibly)! Enough is He for a witness between me and you! And He is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful." 4781
9 Say: "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the apostles nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that which is revealed to me by inspiration: I am but a Warner open and clear." 4782
10 Say: "See ye? If (this teaching) be from Allah and ye reject it and a witness from among the Children of Israel testifies to its similarity (with earlier scriptures) and has believed while ye are arrogant (how unjust ye are!) truly Allah guides not a people unjust." 4783 4784
Al-Quran conforms the revelation of Torah given to Prophet Musa
11 The Unbelievers say of those who believe: "If (this Message) were a good thing (such men) would not have gone to it first before us!" and seeing that they guide not themselves thereby they will say "This is an (old) old falsehood!" 4785
12 And before this was the Book of Moses as a guide and a mercy; and this Book confirms (it) in the Arabic tongue; to admonish the unjust and as Glad Tidings to those who do right. 4786
13 Verily those who say "Our Lord is Allah" and remain firm (on that Path) on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve. 4787 4788
14 Such shall be Companions of the Garden dwelling Therein (for aye): a recompense for their (good) deeds.
Those who treat their parents with kindness shall be rewarded and those who rebuke their parents shall be punished
15 We have enjoined on man Kindness to his parents: in pain did his mother bear him and in pain did she give him birth. The carrying of the (child) to his weaning is (a period of) thirty months. At length when he reaches the age of full strength and attains forty years he says "O my Lord! grant me that I may be grateful for Thy favor which Thou hast bestowed upon me and upon both my parents and that I may work righteousness such as Thou mayest approve; and be gracious to me in my issue. Truly have I turned to Thee and truly do I bow (to Thee) in Islam." 4789 4790 4791
16 Such are they from whom We shall accept the best of their deeds and pass by their ill deeds: (they shall be) among the Companions of the Garden: a promise of truth which was made to them (in this life). 4792
17 But (there is one) who says to his parents "Fie on you! Do ye hold out the promise to me that I shall be raised up even though generations have passed before me (without rising again)? " And they two seek Allah's aid (and rebuke the son): "Woe to thee! have Faith! For the promise of Allah is true." But he says "This is nothing but tales of the ancients!" 4793
18 Such are they against whom is proved the Sentence among the previous generations of Jinns and men that have passed away; for they will be (utterly) lost. 4794
19 And to all are (assigned) degrees according to the deeds which they (have done) and in order that (Allah) may recompense their deeds and no injustice be done to them. 4795
20 And on the Day that the Unbelievers will be placed before the Fire (it will be said to them): "Ye received your good things in the life of the world and ye took your pleasure out of them: but today shall ye be recompensed with a Penalty of humiliation: for that ye were arrogant on earth without just cause and that ye (ever) transgressed." 4796 4797
Nation of A'd rejected Allah's message, as a result she faced destruction
21 Mention (Hud) one of `Ad's (own) brethren: behold he warned his people about the winding Sand-tracts: but there have been Warners before him and after him: "Worship ye none other than Allah: truly I fear for you the Penalty of a Mighty Day." 4798 4799
22 They said: "Hast thou come in order to turn us aside from Our gods? Then bring upon us the (calamity) with which thou dost threaten us if thou art telling the truth!" 4800
23 He said: "The Knowledge (of when it will come) is only with Allah: I proclaim to you the mission on which I have been sent: but I see that ye are a people in ignorance!"... 4801
24 Then when they saw the (Penalty in the shape of ) a cloud traversing the sky coming to meet their valleys they said "This cloud will give us rain!" "Nay it is the (calamity) ye were asking to be hastened! a wind wherein is a Grievous Penalty! 4802
25 "Everything will it destroy by the command of its Lord!" Then by the morning they nothing was to be seen but (the ruins of) their houses! Thus do We recompense those given to sin! 4803
26 And We had firmly established them in a (prosperity and) power which We have not given to you (ye Quraish!) and We had endowed them with (faculties of) hearing seeing heart and intellect: but of no profit to them were their (faculties of) hearing sight and heart and intellect when they went on rejecting the Signs of Allah; and they were (completely) encircled by that which they used to mock at! 4804 4805 4806
No deity can save people from the wrath of Allah
27 We destroyed aforetime populations round about you; and We have shown the Signs in various ways that they may turn (to Us). 4807
28 Why then was no help forthcoming to them from those whom they worshipped as gods besides Allah as a means of access (to Allah)? Nay they left them in the lurch: but that was their Falsehood and their invention. 4808
A group of jinns embraced Islam after hearing Al-Quran and became the preachers to their folk
29 Behold We turned towards thee a company of Jinns (quietly) listening to the Qur'an: when they stood in the presence thereof they said "Listen in silence!" When the (reading) was finished they returned to their people to warn (them of their sins). 4809
30 They said "O our people! We have heard a Book revealed after Moses confirming what came before it: it guides (men) to the Truth and to a Straight Path.
31 "O our people hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah and believe in him: He will forgive you your faults and deliver you from a Penalty Grievous. 4810
32 "If any does not hearken to the one who invites (Us) to Allah he cannot frustrate (Allah's Plan) on earth and no protectors can he have besides Allah such men (wander) in manifest error." 4811
33 See they not that Allah Who created the heavens and the earth and never wearied with their creation is able to give life to the dead? Yea verily He has power over all things. 4812
34 And on the Day that the Unbelievers will be placed before the Fire (they will be asked) "Is this not the Truth? " They will say "Yea by our Lord!" (One will say:) "Then taste ye the Penalty for that ye were wont to deny (Truth)!" 4813 4814
Keep on passing the message of Allah and bear the disbelievers with patience
35 Therefore patiently persevere as did (all) apostles of inflexible purpose; and be in no haste about the (Unbelievers). On the Day that they see the (Punishment) promised them (it will be ) as if they had not tarried more than an hour in a single day. (Thine but) to proclaim the Message: but shall any be destroyed except those who transgress? 4815 4816
