Surah Ash-Shu’ara (“The Poets”) is the 26th chapter of the Quran. It consists of 227 ayats or verses. 

The background of the Surah is that the non-believers of Makkah were skeptics and rejected the message of Islam. They would say Muhammad (pbuh) did not show any sign to convince them of his Prophethood. They label him as just a poet and mocked his message. Sometimes they would ridicule his mission, believing his followers were few foolish youth, poor people and slaves. They argued, if his Mission had really some value for the people, the nobles and the elders would have accepted it first.

The non-believers were asking for signs to prove that the Qur’an was the word of Allah. Allah mentioned many signs both in nature and in history. 

Notable Quote:

 “[And he said], “My Lord, grant me authority and join me with the righteous. And grant me a reputation of honor among later generations. And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure.”
– Surah Ash Shu’ara Ayat 83-85 –

1. Ta, Seen, Meem.

تِلْكَ ءَايَـٰتُ ٱلْكِتَـٰبِ ٱلْمُبِينِ

Tilka Aayaatul Kitaabil Mubeen
2. These are the verses of the clear Book.

لَعَلَّكَ بَـٰخِعٌۭ نَّفْسَكَ أَلَّا يَكُونُوا۟ مُؤْمِنِينَ

La’allaka baakhi’un nafsaka allaa yakoonoo mu’mineen
3. Perhaps, [O Muhammad], you would kill yourself with grief that they will not be believers.

إِن نَّشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ ءَايَةًۭ فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَـٰقُهُمْ لَهَا خَـٰضِعِينَ

In nashaa nunazzil ‘alaihim minas samaaa’i Aayatan fazallat a’naaquhum lahaa khaadi’een
4. If We willed, We could send down to them from the sky a sign for which their necks would remain humbled.

وَمَا يَأْتِيهِم مِّن ذِكْرٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا۟ عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ

Wa maa yaateehim min zikrim minar Rahmaani muhdasin illaa kaanoo ‘anhu mu’rideen
5. And no revelation comes to them anew from the Most Merciful except that they turn away from it.

فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا۟ فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنۢبَـٰٓؤُا۟ مَا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ

Faqad kazzaboo fasa yaateehim ambaaa’u maa kaanoo bihee yastahzi’oon
6. For they have already denied, but there will come to them the news of that which they used to ridicule.

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا۟ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ كَمْ أَنۢبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍۢ كَرِيمٍ

Awa lam yaraw ilal ardi kam ambatnaa feehaa min kulli zawjin kareem
7. Did they not look at the earth – how much We have produced therein from every noble kind?

إِنَّ فِى ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَءَايَةًۭ ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

Inn fee zaalika la Aayah; wa maa kaana aksaruhum mu’mineen
8. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

Wa inna Rabbaka la Huwal ‘Azeezur Raheem (section 1)
9. And indeed, your Lord – He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

وَإِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبُّكَ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنِ ٱئْتِ ٱلْقَوْمَ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ

Wa iz naadaa Rabbuka Moosaaa ani’-til qawmaz zaalimeen
10. And [mention] when your Lord called Moses, [saying], “Go to the wrongdoing people –

قَوْمَ فِرْعَوْنَ ۚ أَلَا يَتَّقُونَ

Qawma Fir’awn; alaa yattaqoon
11. The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear Allah ?”

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّىٓ أَخَافُ أَن يُكَذِّبُونِ

Qaala Rabbi inneee akhaafu ai yukazziboon
12. He said, “My Lord, indeed I fear that they will deny me

وَيَضِيقُ صَدْرِى وَلَا يَنطَلِقُ لِسَانِى فَأَرْسِلْ إِلَىٰ هَـٰرُونَ

Wa yadeequ sadree wa laa yantaliqu lisaanee fa arsil ilaa Haaroon
13. And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron.

وَلَهُمْ عَلَىَّ ذَنۢبٌۭ فَأَخَافُ أَن يَقْتُلُونِ

Wa lahum ‘alaiya zambun fa akhaafu ai yaqtuloon
14. And they have upon me a [claim due to] sin, so I fear that they will kill me.”

قَالَ كَلَّا ۖ فَٱذْهَبَا بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَآ ۖ إِنَّا مَعَكُم مُّسْتَمِعُونَ

Qaala kallaa fazhabaa bi Aayaatinaaa innaa ma’akum mustami’oon
15. [ Allah ] said, “No. Go both of you with Our signs; indeed, We are with you, listening.

فَأْتِيَا فِرْعَوْنَ فَقُولَآ إِنَّا رَسُولُ رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ

Faatiyaa Fir’awna faqoolaaa innaa Rasoolu Rabbil ‘aalameen
16. Go to Pharaoh and say, ‘We are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds,

أَنْ أَرْسِلْ مَعَنَا بَنِىٓ إِسْرَ‌ٰٓءِيلَ

An arsil ma’anaa Baneee Israaa’eel
17. [Commanded to say], “Send with us the Children of Israel.”‘”

قَالَ أَلَمْ نُرَبِّكَ فِينَا وَلِيدًۭا وَلَبِثْتَ فِينَا مِنْ عُمُرِكَ سِنِينَ

Qaala alam nurabbika feenaa waleedanw wa labista feenaa min ‘umurika sineen
18. [Pharaoh] said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you remained among us for years of your life?

وَفَعَلْتَ فَعْلَتَكَ ٱلَّتِى فَعَلْتَ وَأَنتَ مِنَ ٱلْكَـٰفِرِينَ

Wa fa’alta fa’latakal latee fa’alta wa anta minal kaafireen
19. And [then] you did your deed which you did, and you were of the ungrateful.”

قَالَ فَعَلْتُهَآ إِذًۭا وَأَنَا۠ مِنَ ٱلضَّآلِّينَ

Qaala fa’altuhaaa izanw wa ana minad daaaleen
20. [Moses] said, “I did it, then, while I was of those astray.

فَفَرَرْتُ مِنكُمْ لَمَّا خِفْتُكُمْ فَوَهَبَ لِى رَبِّى حُكْمًۭا وَجَعَلَنِى مِنَ ٱلْمُرْسَلِينَ

Fafarartu minkum lam maa khiftukum fawahaba lee Rabbee hukmanw wa ja’alanee minal mursaleen
21. So I fled from you when I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and prophethood and appointed me [as one] of the messengers.

وَتِلْكَ نِعْمَةٌۭ تَمُنُّهَا عَلَىَّ أَنْ عَبَّدتَّ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَ‌ٰٓءِيلَ

Wa tilka ni’matun tamun nuhaa ‘alaiya an ‘abbatta Baneee Israaa’eel
22. And is this a favor of which you remind me – that you have enslaved the Children of Israel?”

قَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ وَمَا رَبُّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ

Qaala Fir’awnu wa maa Rabbul ‘aalameen
23. Said Pharaoh, “And what is the Lord of the worlds?”

قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَ‌ٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ ۖ إِن كُنتُم مُّوقِنِينَ

Qaala Rabbus samaawaati wal ardi wa maa bainahumaa in kuntum mooqineen
24. [Moses] said, “The Lord of the heavens and earth and that between them, if you should be convinced.”

قَالَ لِمَنْ حَوْلَهُۥٓ أَلَا تَسْتَمِعُونَ

Qaala liman hawlahooo alaa tastami’oonm
25. [Pharaoh] said to those around him, “Do you not hear?”

قَالَ رَبُّكُمْ وَرَبُّ ءَابَآئِكُمُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

Qaala Rabbukum wa Rabbu aabaaa’ikumul awwaleen
26. [Moses] said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers.”

قَالَ إِنَّ رَسُولَكُمُ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُرْسِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ لَمَجْنُونٌۭ

Qaala inna Rasoolakumul lazee ursila ilaikum lamajnoon
27. [Pharaoh] said, “Indeed, your ‘messenger’ who has been sent to you is mad.”

قَالَ رَبُّ ٱلْمَشْرِقِ وَٱلْمَغْرِبِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَآ ۖ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

Qaala Rabbul mashriqi wal maghribi wa maa baina humaa in kuntum ta’qiloon
28. [Moses] said, “Lord of the east and the west and that between them, if you were to reason.”

قَالَ لَئِنِ ٱتَّخَذْتَ إِلَـٰهًا غَيْرِى لَأَجْعَلَنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلْمَسْجُونِينَ

Qaala la’init takhazta ilaahan ghairee la aj’alannaka minal masjooneen
29. [Pharaoh] said, “If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned.”

قَالَ أَوَلَوْ جِئْتُكَ بِشَىْءٍۢ مُّبِينٍۢ

Qaala awalaw ji’tuka bishai’im mubeenm
30. [Moses] said, “Even if I brought you proof manifest?”

قَالَ فَأْتِ بِهِۦٓ إِن كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰدِقِينَ

Qaala faati biheee in kunta minas saadiqeen
31. [Pharaoh] said, “Then bring it, if you should be of the truthful.”

فَأَلْقَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِىَ ثُعْبَانٌۭ مُّبِينٌۭ

Fa alqaa ‘asaahu fa izaaa hiya su’baanum mubeen
32. So [Moses] threw his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent manifest.

وَنَزَعَ يَدَهُۥ فَإِذَا هِىَ بَيْضَآءُ لِلنَّـٰظِرِينَ

Wa naza’a yadahoo faizaa hiya baidaaa’u linnaa zireen (section 2)
33. And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white for the observers.

قَالَ لِلْمَلَإِ حَوْلَهُۥٓ إِنَّ هَـٰذَا لَسَـٰحِرٌ عَلِيمٌۭ

Qaala lilmala-i hawlahooo inna haazaa lasaahirun ‘aleem
34. [Pharaoh] said to the eminent ones around him, “Indeed, this is a learned magician.

يُرِيدُ أَن يُخْرِجَكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِكُم بِسِحْرِهِۦ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ

Yureedu ai yukhrijakum min ardikum bisihrihee famaazaa taamuroon
35. He wants to drive you out of your land by his magic, so what do you advise?”

قَالُوٓا۟ أَرْجِهْ وَأَخَاهُ وَٱبْعَثْ فِى ٱلْمَدَآئِنِ حَـٰشِرِينَ

Qaalooo arjih wa akhaahu wab’as filmadaaa’ini haashireen
36. They said, “Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers

يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحَّارٍ عَلِيمٍۢ

Yaatooka bikulli sah haarin ‘aleem
37. Who will bring you every learned, skilled magician.”

فَجُمِعَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ لِمِيقَـٰتِ يَوْمٍۢ مَّعْلُومٍۢ

Fa jumi’as saharatu limeeqaati Yawmim ma’loom
38. So the magicians were assembled for the appointment of a well-known day.

وَقِيلَ لِلنَّاسِ هَلْ أَنتُم مُّجْتَمِعُونَ

Wa qeela linnaasi hal antum mujtami’oon
39. And it was said to the people, “Will you congregate

لَعَلَّنَا نَتَّبِعُ ٱلسَّحَرَةَ إِن كَانُوا۟ هُمُ ٱلْغَـٰلِبِينَ

La’allanaa nattabi’us saharata in kaanoo humul ghaalibeen
40. That we might follow the magicians if they are the predominant?”

فَلَمَّا جَآءَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ قَالُوا۟ لِفِرْعَوْنَ أَئِنَّ لَنَا لَأَجْرًا إِن كُنَّا نَحْنُ ٱلْغَـٰلِبِينَ

Falammaa jaaa’as saharatu qaaloo li Fir’awna a’inna lanaa la ajjran in kunnaa nahnul ghaalibeen
41. And when the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, “Is there indeed for us a reward if we are the predominant?”

قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإِنَّكُمْ إِذًۭا لَّمِنَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبِينَ

Qaala na’am wa innakum izal laminal muqarrabeen
42. He said, “Yes, and indeed, you will then be of those near [to me].”

قَالَ لَهُم مُّوسَىٰٓ أَلْقُوا۟ مَآ أَنتُم مُّلْقُونَ

Qaala lahum Moosaaa alqoo maaa antum mulqoon
43. Moses said to them, “Throw whatever you will throw.”

فَأَلْقَوْا۟ حِبَالَهُمْ وَعِصِيَّهُمْ وَقَالُوا۟ بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ ٱلْغَـٰلِبُونَ

Fa alqaw hibaalahum wa ‘isiyyahum wa qaaloo bi’izzati Fir’awna innaa lanahnul ghaaliboon
44. So they threw their ropes and their staffs and said, “By the might of Pharaoh, indeed it is we who are predominant.”

فَأَلْقَىٰ مُوسَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِىَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ

Fa alqaa Moosaa ‘asaahu fa izaa hiya talqafu maa yaafikoonm
45. Then Moses threw his staff, and at once it devoured what they falsified.

فَأُلْقِىَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ سَـٰجِدِينَ

Fa ulqiyas saharatu saajideen
46. So the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah ].

قَالُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا بِرَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ

Qaalooo aamannaa bi Rabbil ‘aalameen
47. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,

رَبِّ مُوسَىٰ وَهَـٰرُونَ

Rabbi Moosaa wa Haaroon
48. The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”

قَالَ ءَامَنتُمْ لَهُۥ قَبْلَ أَنْ ءَاذَنَ لَكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ ٱلَّذِى عَلَّمَكُمُ ٱلسِّحْرَ فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ ۚ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَـٰفٍۢ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

Qaala aamantum lahoo qabla an aazana lakum innahoo lakabeerukumul lazee ‘alla makumus sihra falasawfa ta’lamoon; la uqatti’anna aidiyakum wa arjulakum min khilaafinw wa la usallibanna kum ajma’een
49. [Pharaoh] said, “You believed Moses before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic, but you are going to know. I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all.”

قَالُوا۟ لَا ضَيْرَ ۖ إِنَّآ إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا مُنقَلِبُونَ

Qaaloo la daira innaaa ilaa Rabbinaa munqalliboon
50. They said, “No harm. Indeed, to our Lord we will return.

إِنَّا نَطْمَعُ أَن يَغْفِرَ لَنَا رَبُّنَا خَطَـٰيَـٰنَآ أَن كُنَّآ أَوَّلَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Innaa natma’u ai yaghfira lanaa Rabbunna khataa yaanaaa an kunnaaa awwalal mu’mineen (section 3)
51. Indeed, we aspire that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we were the first of the believers.”

۞ وَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِىٓ إِنَّكُم مُّتَّبَعُونَ

Wa awhainaaa ilaa Moosaaa an asri bi’ibaadeee innakum muttaba’oon
52. And We inspired to Moses, “Travel by night with My servants; indeed, you will be pursued.”

فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ فِى ٱلْمَدَآئِنِ حَـٰشِرِينَ

Fa arsala Fir’awnu filmadaaa’ini haashireen
53. Then Pharaoh sent among the cities gatherers

إِنَّ هَـٰٓؤُلَآءِ لَشِرْذِمَةٌۭ قَلِيلُونَ

Inna haaa’ulaaa’i lashir zimatun qaleeloon
54. [And said], “Indeed, those are but a small band,

وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَآئِظُونَ

Wa innahum lanaa laghaaa’izoon
55. And indeed, they are enraging us,

وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَـٰذِرُونَ

Wa innaa lajamee’un haaziroon
56. And indeed, we are a cautious society… “

فَأَخْرَجْنَـٰهُم مِّن جَنَّـٰتٍۢ وَعُيُونٍۢ

Fa akhrajnaahum min Jannaatinw wa ‘uyoon
57. So We removed them from gardens and springs

وَكُنُوزٍۢ وَمَقَامٍۢ كَرِيمٍۢ

Wa kunoozinw wa ma qaamin kareem
58. And treasures and honorable station –

كَذَ‌ٰلِكَ وَأَوْرَثْنَـٰهَا بَنِىٓ إِسْرَ‌ٰٓءِيلَ

Kazaalika wa awrasnaahaa Baneee Israaa’eel
59. Thus. And We caused to inherit it the Children of Israel.

فَأَتْبَعُوهُم مُّشْرِقِينَ

Fa atba’oohum mushriqeen
60. So they pursued them at sunrise.

فَلَمَّا تَرَ‌ٰٓءَا ٱلْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَـٰبُ مُوسَىٰٓ إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ

Falammaa taraaa’al jam’aani qaala as haabu Moosaaa innaa lamudrakoon
61. And when the two companies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “Indeed, we are to be overtaken!”

قَالَ كَلَّآ ۖ إِنَّ مَعِىَ رَبِّى سَيَهْدِينِ

Qaala kallaaa inna ma’iya Rabbee sa yahdeen
62. [Moses] said, “No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me.”

فَأَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنِ ٱضْرِب بِّعَصَاكَ ٱلْبَحْرَ ۖ فَٱنفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍۢ كَٱلطَّوْدِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

Fa awhainaaa ilaa Moosaaa anidrib bi’asaakal bahra fanfalaqa fakaana kullu firqin kattawdil ‘azeem
63. Then We inspired to Moses, “Strike with your staff the sea,” and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.

وَأَزْلَفْنَا ثَمَّ ٱلْءَاخَرِينَ

Wa azlafnaa sammal aakhareen
64. And We advanced thereto the pursuers.

وَأَنجَيْنَا مُوسَىٰ وَمَن مَّعَهُۥٓ أَجْمَعِينَ

Wa anjainaa Moosaa wa mam ma’ahooo ajma’een
65. And We saved Moses and those with him, all together.

ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا ٱلْءَاخَرِينَ

Summa aghraqnal aakhareen
66. Then We drowned the others.

إِنَّ فِى ذَ‌ٰلِكَ لَءَايَةًۭ ۖ وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

Inna fee zaalika la Aayaah; wa maa kaana aksaru hu mu’mineen
67. Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ ٱلْعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

Wa inna Rabbaka la Huwal ‘Azeezur Raheem (section 4)
68. And indeed, your Lord – He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.

وَٱتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ إِبْرَ‌ٰهِيمَ

Watlu ‘alaihim naba-a Ibraaheem
69. And recite to them the news of Abraham,

إِذْ قَالَ لِأَبِيهِ وَقَوْمِهِۦ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ

Iz qaala li abeehi wa qawmihee maa ta’budoon
70. When he said to his father and his people, “What do you worship?”

قَالُوا۟ نَعْبُدُ أَصْنَامًۭا فَنَظَلُّ لَهَا عَـٰكِفِينَ

Qaaloo na’budu asnaaman fanazallu lahaa ‘aakifeen

قَالَ هَلْ يَسْمَعُونَكُمْ إِذْ تَدْعُونَ

Qaala hal yasma’oona kum iz tad’oon
72. He said, “Do they hear you when you supplicate?

أَوْ يَنفَعُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَضُرُّونَ

Aw yanfa’oonakum aw yadurroon
73. Or do they benefit you, or do they harm?”

قَالُوا۟ بَلْ وَجَدْنَآ ءَابَآءَنَا كَذَ‌ٰلِكَ يَفْعَلُونَ

Qaaloo bal wajadnaaa aabaaa ‘anaa kazaalika yaf’aloon
74. They said, “But we found our fathers doing thus.”

قَالَ أَفَرَءَيْتُم مَّا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ

Qaala afara ‘aitum maa kuntum ta’budoon
75. He said, “Then do you see what you have been worshipping,

أَنتُمْ وَءَابَآؤُكُمُ ٱلْأَقْدَمُونَ

Antum wa aabaaa’ukumul aqdamoon
76. You and your ancient forefathers?

فَإِنَّهُمْ عَدُوٌّۭ لِّىٓ إِلَّا رَبَّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ

Fa innahum ‘aduwwwul leee illaa Rabbal ‘aalameen
77. Indeed, they are enemies to me, except the Lord of the worlds,

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَنِى فَهُوَ يَهْدِينِ

Allazee khalaqanee fa Huwa yahdeen
78. Who created me, and He [it is who] guides me.

وَٱلَّذِى هُوَ يُطْعِمُنِى وَيَسْقِينِ

وَإِذَا مَرِضْتُ فَهُوَ يَشْفِينِ

80. And when I am ill, it is He who cures me

وَٱلَّذِى يُمِيتُنِى ثُمَّ يُحْيِينِ

Wallazee yumeetunee summa yuhyeen
81. And who will cause me to die and then bring me to life

وَٱجْعَل لِّى لِسَانَ صِدْقٍۢ فِى ٱلْءَاخِرِينَ

Waj’al lee lisaana sidqin fil aakhireen

وَٱجْعَلْنِى مِن وَرَثَةِ جَنَّةِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ

Waj’alnee minw warasati Jannnatin Na’eem

وَٱغْفِرْ لِأَبِىٓ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلضَّآلِّينَ

Waghfir li abeee innahoo kaana mind daalleen
86. And forgive my father. Indeed, he has been of those astray.

وَلَا تُخْزِنِى يَوْمَ يُبْعَثُونَ

Wa laa tukhzinee Yawma yub’asoon
87. And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected –

وَأُزْلِفَتِ ٱلْجَنَّةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ

وَبُرِّزَتِ ٱلْجَحِيمُ لِلْغَاوِينَ

Wa burrizatil Jaheemu lilghaaween
91. And Hellfire will be brought forth for the deviators,

وَقِيلَ لَهُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْبُدُونَ

Wa qeela lahum aina maa kuntum ta’budoon
92. And it will be said to them, “Where are those you used to worship

مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ هَلْ يَنصُرُونَكُمْ أَوْ يَنتَصِرُونَ

Min doonil laahi hal yansuroonakum aw yantasiroon

نَزَلَ بِهِ ٱلرُّوحُ ٱلْأَمِينُ

Nazala bihir Roohul Ameen
193. The Trustworthy Spirit has brought it down

عَلَىٰ قَلْبِكَ لِتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُنذِرِينَ

‘Alaa qalbika litakoona minal munzireen
194. Upon your heart, [O Muhammad] – that you may be of the warners –

بِلِسَانٍ عَرَبِىٍّۢ مُّبِينٍۢ

Bilisaanin ‘Arabiyyim mubeen
195. In a clear Arabic language.

وَإِنَّهُۥ لَفِى زُبُرِ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ

Wa innahoo lafee Zuburil awwaleen
196. And indeed, it is [mentioned] in the scriptures of former peoples.

أَوَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُمْ ءَايَةً أَن يَعْلَمَهُۥ عُلَمَـٰٓؤُا۟ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَ‌ٰٓءِيلَ

Awalam yakul lahum Aayatan ai ya’lamahoo ‘ulamaaa’u Baneee Israaa’eel
197. And has it not been a sign to them that it is recognized by the scholars of the Children of Israel?

وَلَوْ نَزَّلْنَـٰهُ عَلَىٰ بَعْضِ ٱلْأَعْجَمِينَ

Wa law nazzalnaahu ‘alaa ba’dil a’jameen
198. And even if We had revealed it to one among the foreigners

فَقَرَأَهُۥ عَلَيْهِم مَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ مُؤْمِنِينَ

Faqara ahoo ‘alaihim maa kaanoo bihee mu’mineen
199. And he had recited it to them [perfectly], they would [still] not have been believers in it.

كَذَ‌ٰلِكَ سَلَكْنَـٰهُ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلْمُجْرِمِينَ

Kazaalika salaknaahu fee quloobil mujrimeen
200. Thus have We inserted disbelief into the hearts of the criminals.

لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِۦ حَتَّىٰ يَرَوُا۟ ٱلْعَذَابَ ٱلْأَلِيمَ

Laa yu’minoona bihee hattaa yarawul ‘azaabal aleem
201. They will not believe in it until they see the painful punishment.

فَيَأْتِيَهُم بَغْتَةًۭ وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ

Fayaatiyahum baghtatanw wa hum laa yash’uroon
202. And it will come to them suddenly while they perceive [it] not.

فَيَقُولُوا۟ هَلْ نَحْنُ مُنظَرُونَ

Fa yaqooloo hal nahnu munzaroon
203. And they will say, “May we be reprieved?”

أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونَ

Aafabi ‘azaabinaa yasta’jiloon
204. So for Our punishment are they impatient?

أَفَرَءَيْتَ إِن مَّتَّعْنَـٰهُمْ سِنِينَ

Aara’aita im matta’naahum sineen
205. Then have you considered if We gave them enjoyment for years

ثُمَّ جَآءَهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُوعَدُونَ

Summa jaaa’ahum maa kaanoo yoo’adoon
206. And then there came to them that which they were promised?

مَآ أَغْنَىٰ عَنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا۟ يُمَتَّعُونَ

Maaa aghnaaa ‘anhum maa kaanoo yumaatoo’oon
207. They would not be availed by the enjoyment with which they were provided.

وَمَآ أَهْلَكْنَا مِن قَرْيَةٍ إِلَّا لَهَا مُنذِرُونَ

Wa maaa ahlaknaa min qaryatin illaa lahaa munziroon
208. And We did not destroy any city except that it had warners

ذِكْرَىٰ وَمَا كُنَّا ظَـٰلِمِينَ

Zikraa wa maa kunnaa zaalimeen
209. As a reminder; and never have We been unjust.

وَمَا تَنَزَّلَتْ بِهِ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينُ

Wa maa tanazzalat bihish Shayaateen
210. And the devils have not brought the revelation down.

وَمَا يَنۢبَغِى لَهُمْ وَمَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ

Wa maa yambaghee lahum wa maa yastatee’oon
211. It is not allowable for them, nor would they be able.

إِنَّهُمْ عَنِ ٱلسَّمْعِ لَمَعْزُولُونَ

Innahum ‘anis sam’i lama’zooloon
212. Indeed they, from [its] hearing, are removed.

فَلَا تَدْعُ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَـٰهًا ءَاخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُعَذَّبِينَ

Falaa tad’u ma’al laahi ilaahan aakhara fatakoona minal mu’azzabeen
213. So do not invoke with Allah another deity and [thus] be among the punished.

وَأَنذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ ٱلْأَقْرَبِينَ

Wa anzir ‘asheeratakal aqrabeen
214. And warn, [O Muhammad], your closest kindred.

وَٱخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Wakhfid janaahaka limanit taba ‘aka minal mu’mineen
215. And lower your wing to those who follow you of the believers.

فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّى بَرِىٓءٌۭ مِّمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

Fa in asawka faqul innee bareee’um mimmmaa ta’maloon
216. And if they disobey you, then say, “Indeed, I am disassociated from what you are doing.”

وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Wa tawakkal alal ‘Azeezir Raheem
217. And rely upon the Exalted in Might, the Merciful,

ٱلَّذِى يَرَىٰكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ

Allazee yaraaka heena taqoom
218. Who sees you when you arise

وَتَقَلُّبَكَ فِى ٱلسَّـٰجِدِينَ

Wa taqallubaka fis saajideen
219. And your movement among those who prostrate.

إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ

Innahoo Huwas Samee’ul ‘Aleem
220. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ عَلَىٰ مَن تَنَزَّلُ ٱلشَّيَـٰطِينُ

Hal unabbi’ukum ‘alaa man tanazzalush Shayaateen
221. Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend?

تَنَزَّلُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍۢ

Tanazzalu ‘alaa kulli affaakin aseem
222. They descend upon every sinful liar.

يُلْقُونَ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ كَـٰذِبُونَ

Yulqoonas sam’a wa aksaruhum aaziboon
223. They pass on what is heard, and most of them are liars.

وَٱلشُّعَرَآءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ ٱلْغَاوُۥنَ

Washshu ‘araaa’u yattabi ‘uhumul ghaawoon
224. And the poets – [only] the deviators follow them;

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّهُمْ فِى كُلِّ وَادٍۢ يَهِيمُونَ

Alam tara annahum fee kulli waadiny yaheemoon
225. Do you not see that in every valley they roam

وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لَا يَفْعَلُونَ

Wa annahum yaqooloona ma laa yaf’aloon
226. And that they say what they do not do? –

إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ وَذَكَرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيرًۭا وَٱنتَصَرُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُوا۟ ۗ وَسَيَعْلَمُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓا۟ أَىَّ مُنقَلَبٍۢ يَنقَلِبُونَ

Illal lazeena aamanoo w a’amilus saalihaati wa zakarul laaha kaseeranw wantasaroo mim ba’di maa zulimoo; wa saya’lamul lazeena zalamooo aiya munqalbiny yanqaliboon (section 11)
227. Except those [poets] who believe and do righteous deeds and remember Allah often and defend [the Muslims] after they were wronged. And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned.
