بِسْمِ ٱللَّـهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

In the name of God, the Almighty,1 the Merciful.

الٓر تِلْكَ ءَايَـٰتُ ٱلْكِتَـٰبِ وَقُرْءَانٍ مُّبِينٍ

152

1 alif lām rā1 Those2 are the proofs3 of the Writ4 and of a clear recitation.5

رُّبَمَا يَوَدُّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَوْ كَانُوا۟ مُسْلِمِينَ

2 Perchance those who ignore warning1 will wish they were submitting;2

ذَرْهُمْ يَأْكُلُوا۟ وَيَتَمَتَّعُوا۟ وَيُلْهِهِمُ ٱلْأَمَلُ فَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ

3 Leave thou them to eat and enjoy themselves while hope diverts them;1 and they will come to know.

وَمَآ أَهْلَكْنَا مِن قَرْيَةٍ إِلَّا وَلَهَا كِتَابٌ مَّعْلُومٌ

4 And We destroyed no city save it had a known1 writ;2

مَّا تَسْبِقُ مِنْ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلَهَا وَمَا يَسْتَـْٔخِرُونَ

5 No community outstrips its term, nor will they defer.

وَقَالُوا۟ يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِى نُزِّلَ عَلَيْهِ ٱلذِّكْرُ إِنَّكَ لَمَجْنُونٌ

6 And they say: “O thou upon whom the remembrance1 has been sent down: thou art possessed.

لَّوْ مَا تَأْتِينَا بِٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةِ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰدِقِينَ

7 “Why bringest thou not the angels to us, if thou be of the truthful?”

مَا نُنَزِّلُ ٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةَ إِلَّا بِٱلْحَقِّ وَمَا كَانُوٓا۟ إِذًا مُّنظَرِينَ

8 We send down the angels only with justice,1 and then are they not granted respite.

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا ٱلذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ لَحَـٰفِظُونَ

9 We sent down the remembrance,1 and We are its custodian.2

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ فِى شِيَعِ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

10 And We sent before thee, among the sects of the former peoples,

وَمَا يَأْتِيهِم مِّن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ

11 And there came not to them any messenger but they mocked him;

كَذَٰلِكَ نَسْلُكُهُۥ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ

12 Thus do We insert it1 in the hearts of the lawbreakers:

لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِۦ وَقَدْ خَلَتْ سُنَّةُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

13 They believe not in1 it; and the practice2 of the former peoples has passed away.3

وَلَوْ فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَابًا مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ فَظَلُّوا۟ فِيهِ يَعْرُجُونَ

14 And had We opened above them a gate of the sky and they continued ascending therein

لَقَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّمَا سُكِّرَتْ أَبْصَـٰرُنَا بَلْ نَحْنُ قَوْمٌ مَّسْحُورُونَ

15 They would say: “Our sight is but intoxicated;1 nay,2 we are a people taken by sorcery.”3

وَلَقَدْ جَعَلْنَا فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ بُرُوجًا وَزَيَّنَّـٰهَا لِلنَّـٰظِرِينَ

16 And We have set in the sky constellations, and made them fair for the beholders,

وَحَفِظْنَـٰهَا مِن كُلِّ شَيْطَـٰنٍ رَّجِيمٍ

17 And guarded them from every accursed satan1

إِلَّا مَنِ ٱسْتَرَقَ ٱلسَّمْعَ فَأَتْبَعَهُۥ شِهَابٌ مُّبِينٌ

18 Save such as steals a hearing; and a clear flame follows1 him.2

وَٱلْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنَـٰهَا وَأَلْقَيْنَا فِيهَا رَوَٰسِىَ وَأَنۢبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ شَىْءٍ مَّوْزُونٍ

19 And the earth, We spread it out and cast therein firm mountains, and caused to grow therein every1 balanced thing,

وَجَعَلْنَا لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَعَـٰيِشَ وَمَن لَّسْتُمْ لَهُۥ بِرَٰزِقِينَ

20 And We made therein livelihoods, for you and those for whom you are not providers.

وَإِن مِّن شَىْءٍ إِلَّا عِندَنَا خَزَآئِنُهُۥ وَمَا نُنَزِّلُهُۥٓ إِلَّا بِقَدَرٍ مَّعْلُومٍ

21 And of any thing, with Us only are the treasuries thereof; and We send it down only in known1 measure.

وَأَرْسَلْنَا ٱلرِّيَـٰحَ لَوَٰقِحَ فَأَنزَلْنَا مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَسْقَيْنَـٰكُمُوهُ وَمَآ أَنتُمْ لَهُۥ بِخَـٰزِنِينَ

22 And We sent the fecundating winds, and sent down water from the sky, and gave it to you to drink; and it is not you who are its treasurers.

وَإِنَّا لَنَحْنُ نُحْىِۦ وَنُمِيتُ وَنَحْنُ ٱلْوَٰرِثُونَ

23 And We give life, and We give death; and We are the inheritor.1

وَلَقَدْ عَلِمْنَا ٱلْمُسْتَقْدِمِينَ مِنكُمْ وَلَقَدْ عَلِمْنَا ٱلْمُسْتَـْٔخِرِينَ

24 And We know those who press forward among you; and We know those who lag behind.1

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ يَحْشُرُهُمْ إِنَّهُۥ حَكِيمٌ عَلِيمٌ

25 And thy Lord, He will gather them; He is wise and knowing.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ مِن صَلْصَـٰلٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

26 And We created man from sounding clay, from dark slime transmuted.1

وَٱلْجَآنَّ خَلَقْنَـٰهُ مِن قَبْلُ مِن نَّارِ ٱلسَّمُومِ

27 And the demon dominus1 created We before of the fire of scorching wind.

وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةِ إِنِّى خَـٰلِقٌۢ بَشَرًا مِّن صَلْصَـٰلٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

28 And when thy Lord said to the angels: “I am creating a mortal from sounding clay, from dark slime transmuted,

فَإِذَا سَوَّيْتُهُۥ وَنَفَخْتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِى فَقَعُوا۟ لَهُۥ سَـٰجِدِينَ

29 “And when I have formed him and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall down,1 to him in submission,”2

فَسَجَدَ ٱلْمَلَـٰٓئِكَةُ كُلُّهُمْ أَجْمَعُونَ

30 Then the angels submitted,1 all of them together.

إِلَّآ إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰٓ أَن يَكُونَ مَعَ ٱلسَّـٰجِدِينَ

31 Not so1 Iblīs; he refused to be with those who submit.2

قَالَ يَـٰٓإِبْلِيسُ مَا لَكَ أَلَّا تَكُونَ مَعَ ٱلسَّـٰجِدِينَ

32 He said: “O Iblīs: what ails thee that thou art not with those who submit?”1

قَالَ لَمْ أَكُن لِّأَسْجُدَ لِبَشَرٍ خَلَقْتَهُۥ مِن صَلْصَـٰلٍ مِّنْ حَمَإٍ مَّسْنُونٍ

33 Said he: “I am not one to submit1 to a mortal whom Thou hast created from sounding clay, from dark slime transmuted.”

قَالَ فَٱخْرُجْ مِنْهَا فَإِنَّكَ رَجِيمٌ

34 He said: “Then go thou forth from it,1 for thou art accursed.2

وَإِنَّ عَلَيْكَ ٱللَّعْنَةَ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ ٱلدِّينِ

35 “And the curse is upon thee until the Day of Judgment.”1

قَالَ رَبِّ فَأَنظِرْنِىٓ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ

36 Said he: “My Lord: grant Thou me respite until the day they are raised.”

قَالَ فَإِنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُنظَرِينَ

37 He said: “Thou art of those granted respite

إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ ٱلْوَقْتِ ٱلْمَعْلُومِ

38 “Until the day of the known1 time.”

قَالَ رَبِّ بِمَآ أَغْوَيْتَنِى لَأُزَيِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَأُغْوِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

39 Said he: “My Lord: because Thou hast caused me to err, I will make it fair to them in the earth;1 and I will cause them to err all together,

إِلَّا عِبَادَكَ مِنْهُمُ ٱلْمُخْلَصِينَ

40 “Save Thy sincere servants among them.”

قَالَ هَـٰذَا صِرَٰطٌ عَلَىَّ مُسْتَقِيمٌ

41 He said: “This is a straight path to1 Me:2

إِنَّ عِبَادِى لَيْسَ لَكَ عَلَيْهِمْ سُلْطَـٰنٌ إِلَّا مَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ ٱلْغَاوِينَ

42 “My servants — thou hast no authority over them save those who follow thee among those who err,

وَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ لَمَوْعِدُهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

43 “And Gehenna is their promised place1 all together.

لَهَا سَبْعَةُ أَبْوَٰبٍ لِّكُلِّ بَابٍ مِّنْهُمْ جُزْءٌ مَّقْسُومٌ

44 “It has seven gates; and for each gate is a portion assigned.”

إِنَّ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ فِى جَنَّـٰتٍ وَعُيُونٍ

45 Those who are in prudent fear1 will be among gardens and springs:

ٱدْخُلُوهَا بِسَلَـٰمٍ ءَامِنِينَ

46 “Enter therein in peace, secure!”

وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِى صُدُورِهِم مِّنْ غِلٍّ إِخْوَٰنًا عَلَىٰ سُرُرٍ مُّتَقَـٰبِلِينَ

47 And We will remove what is in their hearts of rancour — as brethren, upon couches1 facing one another;

لَا يَمَسُّهُمْ فِيهَا نَصَبٌ وَمَا هُم مِّنْهَا بِمُخْرَجِينَ

48 Weariness will not touch them therein, nor will they be removed therefrom.

نَبِّئْ عِبَادِىٓ أَنِّىٓ أَنَا ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

49 Inform thou My servants that I am the Forgiving, the Merciful,
