كَذَٰلِكَ سَلَكْنَـٰهُ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ

200 Thus have We put1 it in the hearts of the lawbreakers:

لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِۦ حَتَّىٰ يَرَوُا۟ ٱلْعَذَابَ ٱلْأَلِيمَ

201 “They will not believe in1 it until they see the painful punishment,

فَيَأْتِيَهُم بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ

202 “And it will come upon them unexpectedly, when they perceive not,”

فَيَقُولُوا۟ هَلْ نَحْنُ مُنظَرُونَ

203 Then will they say: “Can we be granted respite?”

أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونَ

204 Is it then Our punishment they seek to hasten?1

أَفَرَءَيْتَ إِن مَّتَّعْنَـٰهُمْ سِنِينَ

205 Hast thou then considered: if We give them enjoyment for years,

ثُمَّ جَآءَهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُوعَدُونَ

206 Then there comes to them what they were promised,

مَآ أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُمَتَّعُونَ

207 What will it avail them, what they enjoyed?

وَمَآ أَهْلَكْنَا مِن قَرْيَةٍ إِلَّا لَهَا مُنذِرُونَ

208 And We destroyed no city save it had warners

ذِكْرَىٰ وَمَا كُنَّا ظَـٰلِمِينَ

209 As a reminder; and We were not wrongdoers.1

وَمَا تَنَزَّلَتْ بِهِ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينُ

210 And the satans1 did not bring it2 down;

وَمَا يَنۢبَغِى لَهُمْ وَمَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ

211 And it does not behove them, nor are they able.

إِنَّهُمْ عَنِ ٱلسَّمْعِ لَمَعْزُولُونَ

212 They are excluded from hearing.

فَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ ٱللَّـهِ إِلَـٰهًا ءَاخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُعَذَّبِينَ

213 And call thou not, with God, to another god lest thou be of those punished.

وَأَنذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ ٱلْأَقْرَبِينَ

214 And warn thou thy relatives.

وَٱخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

215 And lower thou thy wing1 to those who follow thee among the believers.2

فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّى بَرِىٓءٌ مِّمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

216 And if they oppose thee, say thou: “I am quit of what you do.”

وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

217 And place thou thy trust in the Exalted in Might, the Merciful:

ٱلَّذِى يَرَىٰكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ

218 Who sees thee when thou arisest,

وَتَقَلُّبَكَ فِى ٱلسَّـٰجِدِينَ

219 And thy going to and fro among those who submit;1

إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ

220 He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ عَلَىٰ مَن تَنَزَّلُ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينُ

221 Shall I inform you upon whom the satans1 descend?

تَنَزَّلُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍ

222 They descend upon every sinful deceiver:1

يُلْقُونَ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ كَـٰذِبُونَ

223 They give ear,1 and most of them are liars.

وَٱلشُّعَرَآءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ ٱلْغَاوُۥنَ

224 And the poets:1 those who err follow them.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّهُمْ فِى كُلِّ وَادٍ يَهِيمُونَ

225 Dost thou not see1 that they wander in every valley,2

وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لَا يَفْعَلُونَ

226 And that they say what they do not?

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ وَذَكَرُوا۟ ٱللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا وَٱنتَصَرُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُوا۟ وَسَيَعْلَمُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ أَىَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ

227 Save those who heed warning1 and do righteous deeds, and remember God much, and help themselves after they have been wronged;2 and those who do wrong will come to know to what final destination they will be returned.
