Sad. By the Qur'an full of Admonition: (this is the Truth). 4146 4147
But the Unbelievers (are steeped) in Self-glory and Separatism. 4148
How many generations before them did We destroy? In the end they cried (for mercy) when there was no longer time for being saved! 4149
So they wonder that a Warner has come to them from among themselves! And the Unbelievers say "This is a sorcerer telling lies! 4150
"Has he made the gods (all) into one Allah? Truly this is a wonderful thing!" 4151
And the leaders among them go away (impatiently) (saying) "Walk ye away and remain constant to your gods! For this is truly a thing designed (against you)! 4152
"We never heard (the like) of this among the people of these latter days: this is nothing but a made-up tale! 4153
"What! Has the Message been sent to him (of all persons) among us?" But they are in doubt concerning My (own) Message! Nay they have not yet tasted My Punishment! 4154 4155
Or have they the Treasures of the Mercy of thy Lord the Exalted in Power the Grantor of Bounties without measure! 4156
Or have they the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all between? If so let them mount up with the ropes and means (to reach that end)! 4157
But there will be put to flight even a host of confederates. 4158
Before them (were many who) rejected apostles the People of Noah and `Ad and Pharaoh the Lord of Stakes. 4159 4160
And Thamud and the People of Lut and the Companions of the Wood; such were the Confederates. 4161 4162
Not one (of them) but rejected the apostles but My Punishment came justly and inevitably (on them). 4163
These (to-day) only wait for a single mighty Blast which (when it comes) will brook no delay. 4164 4165
They say: "Our Lord! Hasten to us our sentence (even) before the Day of Account!" 4166
Have patience at what they say and remember Our Servant David the man of strength: for he ever turned (to Allah). 4167
It was We that made the hills declare in unison with him Our Praises at eventide and at break of day. 4168
And the birds gathered (in assemblies): all with him did turn (to Allah). 4169
We strengthened his kingdom and gave him wisdom and sound judgment in speech and decision. 4170
Has the Story of the Disputants reached thee? Behold they climbed over the wall of the private chamber; 4171
When they entered the presence of David and he was terrified of them they said: "Fear not: We are two disputants one of whom has wronged the other: decide now between us with truth and treat us not with injustice but guide us to the even Path. 4172
"This man is my brother; he has nine and ninety ewes and I have (but) one: Yet he says `Commit her to my care' and is (moreover) harsh to me in speech." 4173
(David) said: "He has undoubtedly wronged thee in demanding thy (single) ewe to be added to his (flock of) ewes: truly many are the Partners (in business) who wrong each other: not so do those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and how few are they?"... And David gathered that We had tried him: he asked forgiveness of his Lord fell down bowing (in prostration) and turned (to Allah in repentance). 4174 4175 4176
So We forgave him this (lapse): he enjoyed indeed a Near Approach to Us and a beautiful place of (final) Return.
O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth: so judge thou between men in truth (and justice): nor follow thou the lusts (of thy heart) for they will mislead thee from the Path of Allah: for those who wander astray from the Path of Allah is a Penalty Grievous for that they forget the Day of Account. 4177 4178
Not without purpose did We create heaven and earth and all between! That were the thought of Unbelievers! But woe to the Unbelievers because of the Fire (of Hell)! 4179
Shall We treat those who believe and work deeds of righteousness the same as those who do mischief on earth? Shall We treat those who guard against evil the same as those who turn aside from the right? 4180
(Here is) a Book which We have sent down unto thee full of blessings that they may meditate on its Signs and that men of understanding may receive admonition. 4181
To David We gave Solomon (for a son) how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn (to Us)! 4182
Behold there were brought before him at eventide coursers of the highest breeding; and swift of foot; 4183 4184
And he said "Truly do I love the love of Good with a view to the glory of my Lord" until (the sun) was hidden in the veil (of Night): 4185 4186
"Bring them back to me." Then began he to pass his hand over (their) legs and their necks. 4187
And We did try Solomon: We placed on his throne a body (without life): but he did turn (to Us in true devotion): 4188 4189
He said "O my Lord! Forgive me and grant me a Kingdom which (it may be) suits not another after me: for Thou art the Grantor of Bounties (without measure)." 4190 4191 4192
Then We subjected the Wind to his power to flow gently to his order whithersoever he willed 4193
As also the evil ones (including) every kind of builder and diver 4194
As also others bound together in fetters. 4195
"Such are Our Bounties: whether thou bestow them (on others) or withhold them no account will be asked." 4196
And he enjoyed indeed a Near Approach to Us and a beautiful Place of (final) Return. 4197
Commemorate Our servant Job behold he cried to his Lord: "The Evil One has afflicted me with distress and suffering"! 4198 4199
(The command was given:) "Strike with thy foot: here is (water) wherein to wash cool and refreshing and (water) to drink." 4200
And We gave him (back) his people and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves and a thing for commemoration for all who have Understanding. 4201
"And take in thy hand a little grass and strike therewith: and break not (thy oath)." Truly We found him full of patience and constancy: how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn (to Us)! 4202 4203
And commemorate Our servants Abraham Isaac and Jacob possessors of Power and Vision. 4204
Verily We did chose them for a special (purpose) proclaiming the Message of the Hereafter.
They were in Our sight truly of the company of the Elect and the Good.
And commemorate Ismail Elisha and Zul-Kifl: each of them was of the company of the Good. 4205
This is a message (of admonition): and verily for the Righteous is a beautiful place of (final) Return) 4206
Gardens of Eternity whose doors will (ever) be open to them; 4207
Therein will they recline (at ease); therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance and (delicious) drink; 4208
And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances (companions) of equal age. 4209 4210
Such is the promise made to you for the Day of Account!
Truly such will be Our Bounty (to you); it will never fail
Yea such! But for the wrongdoers will be an evil place of (final) Return! 4211
Hell! They will burn therein an evil bed (indeed to lie on)! 4212
Yea such! Then shall they taste it a boiling fluid and a fluid dark murky intensely cold! 4213
And other Penalties of a similar kind to match them!
Here is a troop rushing headlong with you! No welcome for them! Truly they shall burn in the Fire! 4214
(The followers shall cry to the misleaders:) "Nay ye (too)! No welcome for you! It is ye who have brought this upon us! Now evil is (this) place to stay in!" 4215
They will say: "Our Lord! Whoever brought this upon us add to him a double Penalty in the fire!" 4216
And they will say: "What has happened to us that we see not men whom we used to number among the bad ones? 4217
"Did we treat them (as such) in ridicule or have (our) eyes failed to perceive them?"
Truly that is just and fitting the mutual recriminations of the People of the Fire! 4218
Say: "Truly am I a Warner: no god is there but the One Allah Supreme and Irresistible 4219
"The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between Exalted in Might Able to enforce His will forgiving again and again." 4220 4221
Say: "That is a message supreme (above all)
"From which ye do turn away! 4222
"No knowledge have I of the Chiefs on high when they discuss (matters) among themselves. 4223
"Only this has been revealed to me: that I am to give warning plainly and publicly." 4224
Behold thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man from clay: 4225 4226
"When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit fall ye down in obeisance unto him." 4227
So the angels prostrated themselves all of them together;
Not so Iblis: he was haughty and became one of those who reject Faith. 4228
(Allah) said: "O Iblis! what prevents thee from prostrating thyself to one whom I have created with My hands? Art thou haughty? Or art thou one of the high (and mighty) ones?" 4229 4230
(Iblis) said: "I am better than he: Thou createdst me from fire and him Thou createdst from clay."
(Allah) said: "Then get thee out from here: for thou art rejected accursed.
"And My Curse shall be on thee till the Day of Judgement." 4231
(Iblis) said: "O my Lord! give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are raised." 4232
(Allah) said: "Respite then is granted thee
"Till the day of the Time Appointed." 4233
(Iblis) said: "Then by Thy power I will put them all in the wrong 4234 4235
"Except Thy Servants amongst them sincere and purified (by Thy grace)."
(Allah) said: "Then it is just and fitting and I say what is just and fitting 4236
"That I will certainly fill Hell with thee and those that follow thee--every one." 4237
Say: "No reward do I ask of you for this (Qur'an) nor am I a pretender. 4238 4239
"This is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds. 4240
"And ye shall certainly know the truth of it (all) after a while." 4241
