In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful

1. Certainly will the believers have succeeded:

ٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ فِى صَلَاتِهِمْ خَـٰشِعُونَ

2. They who are during their prayer humbly submissive

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ عَنِ ٱللَّغْوِ مُعْرِضُونَ

Wallazeena hum ‘anillaghwimu’ridoon

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ لِفُرُوجِهِمْ حَـٰفِظُونَ

5. And they who guard their private parts

إِلَّا عَلَىٰٓ أَزْوَ‌ٰجِهِمْ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـٰنُهُمْ فَإِنَّهُمْ غَيْرُ مَلُومِينَ

Illaa ‘alaaa azwaajihim aw maa malakat aimaanuhum fa innahum ghairu maloomeen
6. Except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed –

فَمَنِ ٱبْتَغَىٰ وَرَآءَ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْعَادُونَ

Famanib taghaa waraaa’a zaalika fa ulaaa’ika humul ‘aadoon
7. But whoever seeks beyond that, then those are the transgressors –

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ لِأَمَـٰنَـٰتِهِمْ وَعَهْدِهِمْ رَ‌ٰعُونَ

Wallazeena hum li amaanaatihim wa ‘ahdihim raa’oon

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُمْ عَلَىٰ صَلَوَ‌ٰتِهِمْ يُحَافِظُونَ

9. And they who carefully maintain their prayers –

أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْوَ‌ٰرِثُونَ

Ulaaa’ika humul waarisoon
10. Those are the inheritors

Allazeena yarisoonal Firdawsa hum feehaa khaalidoon
11. Who will inherit al-Firdaus. They will abide therein eternally.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ مِن سُلَـٰلَةٍۢ مِّن طِينٍۢ

Wa laqad khalaqnal insaana min sulaalatim minteen
12. And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.

ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَـٰهُ نُطْفَةًۭ فِى قَرَارٍۢ مَّكِينٍۢ

Summa ja’alnaahu nutfatan fee qaraarim makeen
13. Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.

ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا ٱلنُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةًۭ فَخَلَقْنَا ٱلْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةًۭ فَخَلَقْنَا ٱلْمُضْغَةَ عِظَـٰمًۭا فَكَسَوْنَا ٱلْعِظَـٰمَ لَحْمًۭا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَـٰهُ خَلْقًا ءَاخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ ٱلْخَـٰلِقِينَ

14. Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُم بَعْدَ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَمَيِّتُونَ

Summa innakum ba’da zaalika la maaiyitoon
15. Then indeed, after that you are to die.

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَـٰمَةِ تُبْعَثُونَ

Summa innakum Yawmal Qiyaamati tub’asoon
16. Then indeed you, on the Day of Resurrection, will be resurrected.

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا فَوْقَكُمْ سَبْعَ طَرَآئِقَ وَمَا كُنَّا عَنِ ٱلْخَلْقِ غَـٰفِلِينَ

Wa laqad khalaqnaa fawqakum sab’a taraaa’iqa wa maa kunnaa ‘anil khalqi ghaafileen
17. And We have created above you seven layered heavens, and never have We been of [Our] creation unaware.

وَأَنزَلْنَا مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءًۢ بِقَدَرٍۢ فَأَسْكَنَّـٰهُ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ ۖ وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰ ذَهَابٍۭ بِهِۦ لَقَـٰدِرُونَ

Wa anzalnaa minas samaaa’i maaa’am biqadarin fa-askannaahu fil ardi wa innaa ‘alaa zahaabim bihee laqaa diroon
18. And We have sent down rain from the sky in a measured amount and settled it in the earth. And indeed, We are Able to take it away.

فَأَنشَأْنَا لَكُم بِهِۦ جَنَّـٰتٍۢ مِّن نَّخِيلٍۢ وَأَعْنَـٰبٍۢ لَّكُمْ فِيهَا فَوَ‌ٰكِهُ كَثِيرَةٌۭ وَمِنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ

Fa anshaanaa lakum bihee Jannaatim min nakheelinw wa a’naab; lakum feehaa fawaakihu kaseeratunw wa minhaa taakuloon
19. And We brought forth for you thereby gardens of palm trees and grapevines in which for you are abundant fruits and from which you eat.

وَشَجَرَةًۭ تَخْرُجُ مِن طُورِ سَيْنَآءَ تَنۢبُتُ بِٱلدُّهْنِ وَصِبْغٍۢ لِّلْءَاكِلِينَ

Wa shajaratan takhruju min Toori Sainaaa’a tambutu bidduhni wa sibghil lil aakileen
20. And [We brought forth] a tree issuing from Mount Sinai which produces oil and food for those who eat.

وَإِنَّ لَكُمْ فِى ٱلْأَنْعَـٰمِ لَعِبْرَةًۭ ۖ نُّسْقِيكُم مِّمَّا فِى بُطُونِهَا وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَـٰفِعُ كَثِيرَةٌۭ وَمِنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ

Wa inna lakum fil an’aami la’ibrah; nusqeekum mimmaa fee butoonihaa wa lakum feehaa manaafi’u kaseeratunw wa minhaa taakuloon
21. And indeed, for you in livestock is a lesson. We give you drink from that which is in their bellies, and for you in them are numerous benefits, and from them you eat.

وَعَلَيْهَا وَعَلَى ٱلْفُلْكِ تُحْمَلُونَ

Wa ‘alaihaa wa’alal fulki tuhmaloon (section 1)
22. And upon them and on ships you are carried.

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِۦ فَقَالَ يَـٰقَوْمِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُۥٓ ۖ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

Wa laqad arsalnaa Noohan ilaa qawmihee faqaala yaa qawmi’budul laaha maa lakum min ilahin ghairuhoo afalaa tattaqoon
23. And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, and he said, “O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?”

فَقَالَ ٱلْمَلَؤُا۟ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ مِن قَوْمِهِۦ مَا هَـٰذَآ إِلَّا بَشَرٌۭ مِّثْلُكُمْ يُرِيدُ أَن يَتَفَضَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَلَوْ شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ لَأَنزَلَ مَلَـٰٓئِكَةًۭ مَّا سَمِعْنَا بِهَـٰذَا فِىٓ ءَابَآئِنَا ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

24. But the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, “This is not but a man like yourselves who wishes to take precedence over you; and if Allah had willed [to send a messenger], He would have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our forefathers.

إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا رَجُلٌۢ بِهِۦ جِنَّةٌۭ فَتَرَبَّصُوا۟ بِهِۦ حَتَّىٰ حِينٍۢ

In huwa illaa rajulum bihee jinnatun fatarabbasoo bihee hattan heen
25. He is not but a man possessed with madness, so wait concerning him for a time.”

قَالَ رَبِّ ٱنصُرْنِى بِمَا كَذَّبُونِ

Qaala Rabbin surnee bimaa kazzaboon
26. [Noah] said, “My Lord, support me because they have denied me.”

فَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْهِ أَنِ ٱصْنَعِ ٱلْفُلْكَ بِأَعْيُنِنَا وَوَحْيِنَا فَإِذَا جَآءَ أَمْرُنَا وَفَارَ ٱلتَّنُّورُ ۙ فَٱسْلُكْ فِيهَا مِن كُلٍّۢ زَوْجَيْنِ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَأَهْلَكَ إِلَّا مَن سَبَقَ عَلَيْهِ ٱلْقَوْلُ مِنْهُمْ ۖ وَلَا تُخَـٰطِبْنِى فِى ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ ۖ إِنَّهُم مُّغْرَقُونَ

27. So We inspired to him, “Construct the ship under Our observation, and Our inspiration, and when Our command comes and the oven overflows, put into the ship from each [creature] two mates and your family, except those for whom the decree [of destruction] has proceeded. And do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are to be drowned.

فَإِذَا ٱسْتَوَيْتَ أَنتَ وَمَن مَّعَكَ عَلَى ٱلْفُلْكِ فَقُلِ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى نَجَّىٰنَا مِنَ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

Fa izas tawaita ata wa mam ma’aka ‘alal fulki faqulil hamdu lillaahil lazee najjaanaa minal qawmiz zalimeen
28. And when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you, then say, ‘Praise to Allah who has saved us from the wrongdoing people.’

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَنزِلْنِى مُنزَلًۭا مُّبَارَكًۭا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلْمُنزِلِينَ

Wa qur Rabbi anzilnee munzalam mubaarakanw wa Anta khairul munzileen
29. And say, ‘My Lord, let me land at a blessed landing place, and You are the best to accommodate [us].’ “

إِنَّ فِى ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَءَايَـٰتٍۢ وَإِن كُنَّا لَمُبْتَلِينَ

Inna fee zaalika la Aayaatinw wa in kunnaa lamubtaleen
30. Indeed in that are signs, and indeed, We are ever testing [Our servants].

ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَا مِنۢ بَعْدِهِمْ قَرْنًا ءَاخَرِينَ

Summaa anshaana mim ba’dihim qarnan aakhareen
31. Then We produced after them a generation of others.

فَأَرْسَلْنَا فِيهِمْ رَسُولًۭا مِّنْهُمْ أَنِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ مَا لَكُم مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرُهُۥٓ ۖ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

Fa arsalnaa feehim Rasoolam minhum ani’budul laaha maa lakum min ilaahin ghairuhoo afalaa tattaqoon (section 2)
32. And We sent among them a messenger from themselves, [saying], “Worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him; then will you not fear Him?”

وَقَالَ ٱلْمَلَأُ مِن قَوْمِهِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ وَكَذَّبُوا۟ بِلِقَآءِ ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ وَأَتْرَفْنَـٰهُمْ فِى ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا مَا هَـٰذَآ إِلَّا بَشَرٌۭ مِّثْلُكُمْ يَأْكُلُ مِمَّا تَأْكُلُونَ مِنْهُ وَيَشْرَبُ مِمَّا تَشْرَبُونَ

Wa qaalal mala-u min qawmihil lazeena kafaroo wa kazzaboo bi liqaaa’il Aakhirati wa atrafnaahum fil hayaatid dunyaa maa haazaaa illaa basharum mislukum yaakulu mimmaa taakuloona minhu wa yashrabu mimmaa tashraboon
33. And the eminent among his people who disbelieved and denied the meeting of the Hereafter while We had given them luxury in the worldly life said, “This is not but a man like yourselves. He eats of that from which you eat and drinks of what you drink.

وَلَئِنْ أَطَعْتُم بَشَرًۭا مِّثْلَكُمْ إِنَّكُمْ إِذًۭا لَّخَـٰسِرُونَ

Wa la’in at’atum basharam mislakum innakum izal lakhaasiroon
34. And if you should obey a man like yourselves, indeed, you would then be losers.

أَيَعِدُكُمْ أَنَّكُمْ إِذَا مِتُّمْ وَكُنتُمْ تُرَابًۭا وَعِظَـٰمًا أَنَّكُم مُّخْرَجُونَ

A-Ya’idukum annakum izaa mittum wa kuntum turaabanw wa izaaman annakum mukhrajoon
35. Does he promise you that when you have died and become dust and bones that you will be brought forth [once more]?

۞ هَيْهَاتَ هَيْهَاتَ لِمَا تُوعَدُونَ

Haihaata haihaata limaa too’adoon
36. How far, how far, is that which you are promised.

إِنْ هِىَ إِلَّا حَيَاتُنَا ٱلدُّنْيَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحْيَا وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمَبْعُوثِينَ

In hiya illaa hayaatunad dunyaa namootu wa nahyaa wa maa nahnu bimab’ooseen
37. Life is not but our worldly life – we die and live, but we will not be resurrected.

إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا رَجُلٌ ٱفْتَرَىٰ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ كَذِبًۭا وَمَا نَحْنُ لَهُۥ بِمُؤْمِنِينَ

In huwa illaa rajulunif taraa ‘alal laahi kazibanw wa maa nahnuu lahoo bimu’mineen
38. He is not but a man who has invented a lie about Allah, and we will not believe him.”

قَالَ رَبِّ ٱنصُرْنِى بِمَا كَذَّبُونِ

Qaala Rabbin surnee bimaa kazzaboon
39. He said, “My Lord, support me because they have denied me.”

قَالَ عَمَّا قَلِيلٍۢ لَّيُصْبِحُنَّ نَـٰدِمِينَ

Qaala ‘ammaa qaleelil la yusbihunna naadimeen
40. [ Allah ] said, “After a little, they will surely become regretful.”

فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ ٱلصَّيْحَةُ بِٱلْحَقِّ فَجَعَلْنَـٰهُمْ غُثَآءًۭ ۚ فَبُعْدًۭا لِّلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

Fa akhazat humus saihatu bilhaqqi faja’alnaahum ghusaaa’aa; fabu;dal lilqaw miz zaalimeen
41. So the shriek seized them in truth, and We made them as [plant] stubble. Then away with the wrongdoing people.

43. No nation will precede its time [of termination], nor will they remain [thereafter].

ثُمَّ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا تَتْرَا ۖ كُلَّ مَا جَآءَ أُمَّةًۭ رَّسُولُهَا كَذَّبُوهُ ۚ فَأَتْبَعْنَا بَعْضَهُم بَعْضًۭا وَجَعَلْنَـٰهُمْ أَحَادِيثَ ۚ فَبُعْدًۭا لِّقَوْمٍۢ لَّا يُؤْمِنُونَ

44. Then We sent Our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe.

ثُمَّ أَرْسَلْنَا مُوسَىٰ وَأَخَاهُ هَـٰرُونَ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا وَسُلْطَـٰنٍۢ مُّبِينٍ

Summa arsalnaa Moosaa wa akhaahu Haaroona bi Aayaatinaa wa sultaanim mubeen
45. Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority

إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِۦ فَٱسْتَكْبَرُوا۟ وَكَانُوا۟ قَوْمًا عَالِينَ

Ilaa Fir’awna wa mala’ihee fastakbaroo wa kaanoo qawman ‘aaleem
46. To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were arrogant and were a haughty people.

فَقَالُوٓا۟ أَنُؤْمِنُ لِبَشَرَيْنِ مِثْلِنَا وَقَوْمُهُمَا لَنَا عَـٰبِدُونَ

Faqaaloo annu’minu libasharaini mislinaa wa qawmuhumaa lanaa ‘aabidoon
47. They said, “Should we believe two men like ourselves while their people are for us in servitude?”

فَكَذَّبُوهُمَا فَكَانُوا۟ مِنَ ٱلْمُهْلَكِينَ

Fakazzaboohumaa fakaanoo minal mmuhlakeen
48. So they denied them and were of those destroyed.

وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا مُوسَى ٱلْكِتَـٰبَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَهْتَدُونَ

Wa laqad aatainaa Moosal Kitaaba la’allahum yahtadoon
49. And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided.

وَجَعَلْنَا ٱبْنَ مَرْيَمَ وَأُمَّهُۥٓ ءَايَةًۭ وَءَاوَيْنَـٰهُمَآ إِلَىٰ رَبْوَةٍۢ ذَاتِ قَرَارٍۢ وَمَعِينٍۢ

Wa ja’alnab na Maryama wa ummahooo aayatannw wa aawainaahumaaa ilaa rabwatin zaati qaraarinw wa ma’een (section 3)
50. And We made the son of Mary and his mother a sign and sheltered them within a high ground having level [areas] and flowing water.

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلرُّسُلُ كُلُوا۟ مِنَ ٱلطَّيِّبَـٰتِ وَٱعْمَلُوا۟ صَـٰلِحًا ۖ إِنِّى بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ عَلِيمٌۭ

51. [ Allah said], “O messengers, eat from the good foods and work righteousness. Indeed, I, of what you do, am Knowing.

وَإِنَّ هَـٰذِهِۦٓ أُمَّتُكُمْ أُمَّةًۭ وَ‌ٰحِدَةًۭ وَأَنَا۠ رَبُّكُمْ فَٱتَّقُونِ

Wa inna haaziheee ummatukum ummatanw waahidatanw wa Ana Rabbukum fattaqoon
52. And indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so fear Me.”

فَتَقَطَّعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَهُم بَيْنَهُمْ زُبُرًۭا ۖ كُلُّ حِزْبٍۭ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُونَ

Fataqatta’ooo amrahum bainahum zuburaa; kullu hizbim bimaa ladaihim farihoon
53. But the people divided their religion among them into sects – each faction, in what it has, rejoicing.

فَذَرْهُمْ فِى غَمْرَتِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ حِينٍ

Fazarhum fee ghamratihim hattaa heen
54. So leave them in their confusion for a time.

أَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّمَا نُمِدُّهُم بِهِۦ مِن مَّالٍۢ وَبَنِينَ

A-yahsaboona annnamaa numiduhum bihee mimmaalinw wa baneen
55. Do they think that what We extend to them of wealth and children

نُسَارِعُ لَهُمْ فِى ٱلْخَيْرَ‌ٰتِ ۚ بَل لَّا يَشْعُرُونَ

Nusaari’u lahum fil khairaat; bal laa yash’uroon
56. Is [because] We hasten for them good things? Rather, they do not perceive.

إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ هُم مِّنْ خَشْيَةِ رَبِّهِم مُّشْفِقُونَ

Innal lazeena hum min khashyati Rabbihim mushfiqoon
57. Indeed, they who are apprehensive from fear of their Lord

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِـَٔايَـٰتِ رَبِّهِمْ يُؤْمِنُونَ

وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِرَبِّهِمْ لَا يُشْرِكُونَ

Wallazeena hum bi Rabbihim laa yushrikoon
59. And they who do not associate anything with their Lord

وَٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْتُونَ مَآ ءَاتَوا۟ وَّقُلُوبُهُمْ وَجِلَةٌ أَنَّهُمْ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ رَ‌ٰجِعُونَ

Wallazeena yu’toona maaa aataw wa quloobuhum wajilatun annahum ilaa Rabbihim raaji’oon
60. And they who give what they give while their hearts are fearful because they will be returning to their Lord –

أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ يُسَـٰرِعُونَ فِى ٱلْخَيْرَ‌ٰتِ وَهُمْ لَهَا سَـٰبِقُونَ

Ulaaa’ika yusaari’oona fil khairaati wa hum lahaa saabiqoon
61. It is those who hasten to good deeds, and they outstrip [others] therein.

وَلَا نُكَلِّفُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۖ وَلَدَيْنَا كِتَـٰبٌۭ يَنطِقُ بِٱلْحَقِّ ۚ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ

Wa laa nukallifu nafsan illaa wus’ahaa wa ladainaa kitaabuny yantiqu bilhaqqi wa ahum la yuzlamoon
62. And We charge no soul except [with that within] its capacity, and with Us is a record which speaks with truth; and they will not be wronged.

بَلْ قُلُوبُهُمْ فِى غَمْرَةٍۢ مِّنْ هَـٰذَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْمَـٰلٌۭ مِّن دُونِ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ هُمْ لَهَا عَـٰمِلُونَ

Bal quloobuhum fee ghamratim min haazaa wa lahum a’maalum min dooni zaalika hum lahaa ‘aamiloon
63. But their hearts are covered with confusion over this, and they have [evil] deeds besides disbelief which they are doing,

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَآ أَخَذْنَا مُتْرَفِيهِم بِٱلْعَذَابِ إِذَا هُمْ يَجْـَٔرُونَ

Hattaaa izaaa akhaznaa mutrafeehim bil’azaabi izaa hum yaj’aroon
64. Until when We seize their affluent ones with punishment, at once they are crying [to Allah ] for help.

لَا تَجْـَٔرُوا۟ ٱلْيَوْمَ ۖ إِنَّكُم مِّنَّا لَا تُنصَرُونَ

Laa taj’arul yawma innakum minnaa laa tunsaroon
65. Do not cry out today. Indeed, by Us you will not be helped.

قَدْ كَانَتْ ءَايَـٰتِى تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰٓ أَعْقَـٰبِكُمْ تَنكِصُونَ

Qad kaanat Aayaatee tutlaa ‘alaikum fakuntum ‘alaaa a’qaabikum tankisoon
66. My verses had already been recited to you, but you were turning back on your heels

مُسْتَكْبِرِينَ بِهِۦ سَـٰمِرًۭا تَهْجُرُونَ

Mustakbireena bihee saamiran tahjuroon
67. In arrogance regarding it, conversing by night, speaking evil.

أَفَلَمْ يَدَّبَّرُوا۟ ٱلْقَوْلَ أَمْ جَآءَهُم مَّا لَمْ يَأْتِ ءَابَآءَهُمُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

Afalam yaddabbarrul qawla am jaaa’ahum maa lam yaati aabaaa’ahumul awwaleen
68. Then have they not reflected over the Qur’an, or has there come to them that which had not come to their forefathers?

أَمْ لَمْ يَعْرِفُوا۟ رَسُولَهُمْ فَهُمْ لَهُۥ مُنكِرُونَ

Am lam ya’rifoo Rasoolahum fahum lahoo munkiroon
69. Or did they not know their Messenger, so they are toward him disacknowledging?

أَمْ يَقُولُونَ بِهِۦ جِنَّةٌۢ ۚ بَلْ جَآءَهُم بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ لِلْحَقِّ كَـٰرِهُونَ

Am yaqooloona bihee jinnnah; bal jaaa’ahum bilhaqqi wa aksaruhum lil haqqi kaarihoon
70. Or do they say, “In him is madness?” Rather, he brought them the truth, but most of them, to the truth, are averse.

وَلَوِ ٱتَّبَعَ ٱلْحَقُّ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ لَفَسَدَتِ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَ‌ٰتُ وَٱلْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ ۚ بَلْ أَتَيْنَـٰهُم بِذِكْرِهِمْ فَهُمْ عَن ذِكْرِهِم مُّعْرِضُونَ

Wa lawit taba’al haqqu ahwaaa’ahum lafasadatis samaawaatu wal ardu wa man feehinnn; bal atainaahum bizikrihim fahum ‘an zikrihim mu’ridoon
71. But if the Truth had followed their inclinations, the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them would have been ruined. Rather, We have brought them their message, but they, from their message, are turning away.

أَمْ تَسْـَٔلُهُمْ خَرْجًۭا فَخَرَاجُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌۭ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّ‌ٰزِقِينَ

Am tas’aluhum kharjan fakharaaju Rabbika khairunw wa Huwa khairur raaziqeen
72. Or do you, [O Muhammad], ask them for payment? But the reward of your Lord is best, and He is the best of providers.

وَإِنَّكَ لَتَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَىٰ صِرَ‌ٰطٍۢ مُّسْتَقِيمٍۢ

Wa innaka latad’oohum ilaa Siraatim Mustaqeem
73. And indeed, you invite them to a straight path.

وَإِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلْءَاخِرَةِ عَنِ ٱلصِّرَ‌ٰطِ لَنَـٰكِبُونَ

Wa innnal lazeena laa yu’minoona bil Aakhirati ‘anis siraati lanaakiboon
74. But indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter are deviating from the path.

۞ وَلَوْ رَحِمْنَـٰهُمْ وَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِم مِّن ضُرٍّۢ لَّلَجُّوا۟ فِى طُغْيَـٰنِهِمْ يَعْمَهُونَ

Wa law rahimnaahum wa kashafnaa maa bihim min durril lalajjoo fee tughyaanihim ya’mahoon
75. And even if We gave them mercy and removed what was upon them of affliction, they would persist in their transgression, wandering blindly.

وَلَقَدْ أَخَذْنَـٰهُم بِٱلْعَذَابِ فَمَا ٱسْتَكَانُوا۟ لِرَبِّهِمْ وَمَا يَتَضَرَّعُونَ

Wa laqad akhaznaahum bil’azaabi famastakaanoo li Rabbihim wa maa yatadarra’oon
76. And We had gripped them with suffering [as a warning], but they did not yield to their Lord, nor did they humbly supplicate, [and will continue thus]

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِم بَابًۭا ذَا عَذَابٍۢ شَدِيدٍ إِذَا هُمْ فِيهِ مُبْلِسُونَ

Hattaaa izaa fatahnaa ‘alaihim baaban zaa ‘azaabin shadeedin izaa hum feehi mublisoon (section 4)
77. Until when We have opened before them a door of severe punishment, immediately they will be therein in despair.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنشَأَ لَكُمُ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلْأَبْصَـٰرَ وَٱلْأَفْـِٔدَةَ ۚ قَلِيلًۭا مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ

Wa Huwal lazeee ansha a-lakumus sam’a wal absaara wal af’idah; qaleelam maa tashkuroon
78. And it is He who produced for you hearing and vision and hearts; little are you grateful.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى ذَرَأَكُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَإِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

Wa Huwal lazee zara akum fil ardi wa ilaihi tuhsharoon
79. And it is He who has multiplied you throughout the earth, and to Him you will be gathered.

وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى يُحْىِۦ وَيُمِيتُ وَلَهُ ٱخْتِلَـٰفُ ٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

Wa Huwal lazee yuhyee wa yumeetu wa lahukh tilaaful laili wannahaar; afalaa ta’qiloon
80. And it is He who gives life and causes death, and His is the alternation of the night and the day. Then will you not reason?

بَلْ قَالُوا۟ مِثْلَ مَا قَالَ ٱلْأَوَّلُونَ

Bal qaaloo misla maa qaalal awwaloon
81. Rather, they say like what the former peoples said.

قَالُوٓا۟ أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًۭا وَعِظَـٰمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ

Qaalooo ‘a-izaa mitnaa wa kunnaa turaabanw wa ‘izaaman ‘a-innaa lamab ‘oosoon
82. They said, “When we have died and become dust and bones, are we indeed to be resurrected?

لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا نَحْنُ وَءَابَآؤُنَا هَـٰذَا مِن قَبْلُ إِنْ هَـٰذَآ إِلَّآ أَسَـٰطِيرُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

Laqad wu’idnaa nahnu wa aabaaa’unaa haazaa min qablu in haazaaa illaaa asaateerul awwaleen
83. We have been promised this, we and our forefathers, before; this is not but legends of the former peoples.”

قُل لِّمَنِ ٱلْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهَآ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

Qul limanil ardu wa man feehaaa in kuntum ta’lamoon
84. Say, [O Muhammad], “To whom belongs the earth and whoever is in it, if you should know?”

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ

Sa-yaqooloona lillaah; qul afalaa tazakkkaroon
85. They will say, “To Allah .” Say, “Then will you not remember?”

قُلْ مَن رَّبُّ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَ‌ٰتِ ٱلسَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

Qul mar Rabbus samaawaatis sab’i wa Rabbul ‘Arshil ‘Azeem
86. Say, “Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the Great Throne?”

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ أَفَلَا تَتَّقُونَ

Sa yaqooloona lillaah; qul afalaa tattaqoon
87. They will say, “[They belong] to Allah .” Say, “Then will you not fear Him?”

قُلْ مَنۢ بِيَدِهِۦ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ وَهُوَ يُجِيرُ وَلَا يُجَارُ عَلَيْهِ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

Qul mam bi yadihee malakootu kulli shai’inw wa Huwa yujeeru wa laa yujaaru ‘alaihi in kuntum ta’lamoonm
88. Say, “In whose hand is the realm of all things – and He protects while none can protect against Him – if you should know?”

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ ۚ قُلْ فَأَنَّىٰ تُسْحَرُونَ

Sa yaqooloona lillaah; qul fa annaa tus haroon
89. They will say, “[All belongs] to Allah .” Say, “Then how are you deluded?”

بَلْ أَتَيْنَـٰهُم بِٱلْحَقِّ وَإِنَّهُمْ لَكَـٰذِبُونَ

Bal atainaahum bil haqqi wa innahum lakaaziboon
90. Rather, We have brought them the truth, and indeed they are liars.

مَا ٱتَّخَذَ ٱللَّهُ مِن وَلَدٍۢ وَمَا كَانَ مَعَهُۥ مِنْ إِلَـٰهٍ ۚ إِذًۭا لَّذَهَبَ كُلُّ إِلَـٰهٍۭ بِمَا خَلَقَ وَلَعَلَا بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍۢ ۚ سُبْحَـٰنَ ٱللَّهِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ

Mat takhazal laahu minw waladinw wa maa kaana ma’ahoo min ilaah; izal lazahaba kullu ilaahim bimaa khalaqa wa la’alaa ba’duhum ‘alaa ba’d; Subhaannal laahi ‘ammaa yasifoon
91. Allah has not taken any son, nor has there ever been with Him any deity. [If there had been], then each deity would have taken what it created, and some of them would have sought to overcome others. Exalted is Allah above what they describe [concerning Him].

عَـٰلِمِ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَـٰدَةِ فَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

‘Aalimil Ghaibi wash shahhaadati fata’aalaa ‘ammaa yushrikoon (section 5)
92. [He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, so high is He above what they associate [with Him].

قُل رَّبِّ إِمَّا تُرِيَنِّى مَا يُوعَدُونَ

Qur Rabbi immmaa turiyannee maa yoo’adoon
93. Say, [O Muhammad], “My Lord, if You should show me that which they are promised,

رَبِّ فَلَا تَجْعَلْنِى فِى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

Rabbi falaa taj’alnee fil qawmiz zaalimeen
94. My Lord, then do not place me among the wrongdoing people.”

وَإِنَّا عَلَىٰٓ أَن نُّرِيَكَ مَا نَعِدُهُمْ لَقَـٰدِرُونَ

Wa innaa ‘alaaa an nuriyaka maa na’iduhum laqaadiroon
95. And indeed, We are able to show you what We have promised them.

ٱدْفَعْ بِٱلَّتِى هِىَ أَحْسَنُ ٱلسَّيِّئَةَ ۚ نَحْنُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَصِفُونَ

Idfa’ billate hiya ahsanus saiyi’ah; nahnu a’lamu bimaa yasifoon
96. Repel, by [means of] what is best, [their] evil. We are most knowing of what they describe.

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَ‌ٰتِ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينِ

Wa qur Rabbi a’oozu bika min hamazaatish Shayaateen
97. And say, “My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils,

وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ رَبِّ أَن يَحْضُرُونِ

Wa a’oozu bika Rabbi ai-yahduroon
98. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they be present with me.”

حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءَ أَحَدَهُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ٱرْجِعُونِ

Hattaaa izaa jaaa’a ahada humul mawtu qaala Rabbir ji’oon
99. [For such is the state of the disbelievers], until, when death comes to one of them, he says, “My Lord, send me back

لَعَلِّىٓ أَعْمَلُ صَـٰلِحًۭا فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ ۚ كَلَّآ ۚ إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَآئِلُهَا ۖ وَمِن وَرَآئِهِم بَرْزَخٌ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ

La’alleee a’malu saalihan feemaa taraktu kallaa; innahaa kalimatun huwa qaaa’iluhaa wa minw waraaa’him barzakhun ilaa Yawmi yub’asoon
100. That I might do righteousness in that which I left behind.” No! It is only a word he is saying; and behind them is a barrier until the Day they are resurrected.

فَإِذَا نُفِخَ فِى ٱلصُّورِ فَلَآ أَنسَابَ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍۢ وَلَا يَتَسَآءَلُونَ

Fa izaa nufikha fis Soori falaaa ansaaba bainahum yawma’izinw wa laa yatasaaa’aloon
101. So when the Horn is blown, no relationship will there be among them that Day, nor will they ask about one another.

فَمَن ثَقُلَتْ مَوَ‌ٰزِينُهُۥ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ

Faman saqulat mawaazee nuhoo fa ulaaa’ika humul muflihoon
102. And those whose scales are heavy [with good deeds] – it is they who are the successful.

وَمَنْ خَفَّتْ مَوَ‌ٰزِينُهُۥ فَأُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ خَسِرُوٓا۟ أَنفُسَهُمْ فِى جَهَنَّمَ خَـٰلِدُونَ

Wa man khaffat mawaa zeenuhoo fa ulaaa’ikal lazeena khasiroon anfusahum fee Jahannnama khaalidoon
103. But those whose scales are light – those are the ones who have lost their souls, [being] in Hell, abiding eternally.

تَلْفَحُ وُجُوهَهُمُ ٱلنَّارُ وَهُمْ فِيهَا كَـٰلِحُونَ

Talfahu wujoohahumun Naaru wa hum feehaa kaalihoon
104. The Fire will sear their faces, and they therein will have taut smiles.

أَلَمْ تَكُنْ ءَايَـٰتِى تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَكُنتُم بِهَا تُكَذِّبُونَ

Alam takun Aayaatee tutlaa ‘alaikum fakuntum bihaa tukazziboon
105. [It will be said]. “Were not My verses recited to you and you used to deny them?”

قَالُوا۟ رَبَّنَا غَلَبَتْ عَلَيْنَا شِقْوَتُنَا وَكُنَّا قَوْمًۭا ضَآلِّينَ

Qaaloo Rabbanaa ghalabat ‘alainaa shiqwatunaa wa kunnaa qawman daaalleen
106. They will say, “Our Lord, our wretchedness overcame us, and we were a people astray.

رَبَّنَآ أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْهَا فَإِنْ عُدْنَا فَإِنَّا ظَـٰلِمُونَ

Rabbanaa akhrijnaa minhaa fa in ‘udnaa fa innaa zaalimoon
107. Our Lord, remove us from it, and if we were to return [to evil], we would indeed be wrongdoers.”

قَالَ ٱخْسَـُٔوا۟ فِيهَا وَلَا تُكَلِّمُونِ

Qaalakh sa’oo feehaa wa laa tukallimoon
108. He will say, “Remain despised therein and do not speak to Me.

إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فَرِيقٌۭ مِّنْ عِبَادِى يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا فَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّ‌ٰحِمِينَ

Innahoo kaana fareequm min ‘ibaadee yaqooloona Rabbanaaa aamannaa faghfir lanaa warhamnaa wa Anta khairur raahimeen
109. Indeed, there was a party of My servants who said, ‘Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us and have mercy upon us, and You are the best of the merciful.’

فَٱتَّخَذْتُمُوهُمْ سِخْرِيًّا حَتَّىٰٓ أَنسَوْكُمْ ذِكْرِى وَكُنتُم مِّنْهُمْ تَضْحَكُونَ

Fattakhaztumoohum sikhriyyan hattaaa ansawkum zikree wa kuntum minhum tadhakoon
110. But you took them in mockery to the point that they made you forget My remembrance, and you used to laugh at them.

إِنِّى جَزَيْتُهُمُ ٱلْيَوْمَ بِمَا صَبَرُوٓا۟ أَنَّهُمْ هُمُ ٱلْفَآئِزُونَ

Inee jazaituhumul Yawma bimaa sabarooo annahum humul faaa’izoon
111. Indeed, I have rewarded them this Day for their patient endurance – that they are the attainers [of success].”

قَـٰلَ كَمْ لَبِثْتُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ عَدَدَ سِنِينَ

Qaala kam labistum fil ardi ‘adada sineen
112. [ Allah ] will say, “How long did you remain on earth in number of years?”

قَالُوا۟ لَبِثْنَا يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْمٍۢ فَسْـَٔلِ ٱلْعَآدِّينَ

Qaaloo labisnaa yawman aw ba’da yawmin fas’alil ‘aaaddeen
113. They will say, “We remained a day or part of a day; ask those who enumerate.”

قَـٰلَ إِن لَّبِثْتُمْ إِلَّا قَلِيلًۭا ۖ لَّوْ أَنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

Qaala il labistum illaa qaleelal law annakum kuntum ta’lamoon
114. He will say, “You stayed not but a little – if only you had known.

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَـٰكُمْ عَبَثًۭا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ

Afahsibtum annamaa khalaqnaakum ‘abasanw wa annakum ilainaa laa turja’oon
115. Then did you think that We created you uselessly and that to Us you would not be returned?”

فَتَعَـٰلَى ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْحَقُّ ۖ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱلْكَرِيمِ

Fata’aalal laahul Malikul Haqq; laaa ilaaha illaa Huwa Rabbul ‘Arshil Kareem
116. So exalted is Allah, the Sovereign, the Truth; there is no deity except Him, Lord of the Noble Throne.

وَمَن يَدْعُ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَـٰهًا ءَاخَرَ لَا بُرْهَـٰنَ لَهُۥ بِهِۦ فَإِنَّمَا حِسَابُهُۥ عِندَ رَبِّهِۦٓ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يُفْلِحُ ٱلْكَـٰفِرُونَ

Wa mai yad’u ma’allaahi ilaahan aakhara laa burhaana lahoo bihee fa innnamaa hisaabuhoo ‘inda Rabbih; innahoo laa yuflihul kaafiroon
117. And whoever invokes besides Allah another deity for which he has no proof – then his account is only with his Lord. Indeed, the disbelievers will not succeed.

وَقُل رَّبِّ ٱغْفِرْ وَٱرْحَمْ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّ‌ٰحِمِينَ

Wa qul Rabbigh fir warham wa Anta khairur raahimeen (section 6)
118. And, [O Muhammad], say, “My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the best of the merciful.”
