In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

1Alif. Lám. Rá. These are the Ayats of Revelation,- of a Quran that makes things clear.
2Often will those who disbelieve, wish that they had been Muslims.
3Leave them alone, to eat and enjoy, and let (false) hope distract them soon. For they will soon know.
4Never did We destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned beforehand.
5Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it.
6They say: "O thou to whom the Message is being revealed! truly thou art mad (or possessed)!
7"Why bringest thou not angels to us if it be that thou hast the Truth?"
8We send not the angels down except for just cause: if they came (to the ungodly), behold! no respite would they have!
9We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).
10We did send messengers before thee amongst the sects of old:
11But never came a messenger to them but they mocked him.
12Even so do we let it creep into the hearts of the sinners -
13They do not believe in the Message, such has been the way of those who went before them.
14Even if We opened out to them a gate from heaven, and they were to continue (all day) ascending therein,
15They would only say: "Our eyes have been intoxicated: Nay, we have been bewitched by sorcery."
16It is We Who have set out constellations signs in the heavens, and made them fair-seeming to (all) beholders;
17And (moreover) We have guarded them from every accursed Satan.
18But any that gains a hearing by stealth, is pursued by a fiery comet, bright (to see).
19And the earth We have spread out (like a carpet); set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.
20And We have provided therein means of subsistence,- for you and for those for whose sustenance ye are not responsible.
21And there is not a thing but its (sources and) treasures (inexhaustible) are with Us; but We only send down thereof in due and ascertainable measures.
22And We send the fecundating winds, then cause the rain to descend from the sky, therewith providing you with water (in abundance), though ye are not the guardians of its stores.
23And verily, it is We Who give life, and Who give death: it is We Who remain inheritors (after all else passes away).
24To Us are known those of you who hasten forward, and those who lag behind.
25Assuredly it is thy Lord Who will gather them together: for He is Perfect in Wisdom and Knowledge.
26We created man from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape;
27And the Jinn race, We had created before, from the fire of a scorching wind.
28Behold! thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man, from sounding clay from mud molded into shape;
29"When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him."
30So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them together:
31Not so Iblis: he refused to be among those who prostrated themselves.
32(Allah) said: "O Iblis! what is your reason for not being among those who prostrated themselves?"
33(Iblis) said: "I am not one to prostrate myself to man, whom Thou didst create from sounding clay, from mud molded into shape."
34(Allah) said: "Then get thee out from here; for thou art rejected, accursed.
35"And the Curse shall be on thee till the day of Judgment."
36(Iblis) said: "O my Lord! give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are raised."
37(Allah) said: "Respite is granted thee -
38"Till the Day of the Time Appointed."
39(Iblis) said: "O my Lord! because Thou hast put me in the wrong, I will make (wrong) fair-seeming to them on the earth, and I will put them all in the wrong,-
40"Except Thy chosen servants among them."
41(Allah) said: "This is for me a Straight Path.
42"For over My servants no authority shalt thou have, except such as put themselves in the wrong and follow thee."
43And verily, Hell is the promised abode for them all!
44To it are seven Gates: for each of those Gates is a (special) class (of sinners) assigned.
45The righteous (will be) amid Gardens and fountains (of clear-flowing water).
46(Their greeting will be): "Enter ye here in peace and security."
47And We shall remove from their hearts any lurking sense of injury: (they will be) brothers (joyfully) facing each other on raised couches.
48There no sense of fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be asked to leave.
49Tell My servants that I am indeed the Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;
50And that My Chastisement will be indeed the most grievous Chastisement.
51Tell them about the guests of Abraham.
52When they entered his presence and said, "Peace!" He said, "We feel afraid of you!"
53They said: "Fear not! We give thee glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge."
54He said: "Do ye give me glad tidings even though old age has seized me? Of what, then, is your good news?"
55They said: "We give thee glad tidings in truth: be not then in despair!"
56He said: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord, but such as go astray?"
57Abraham said: "What then is the business on which ye (have come), O ye messengers (of Allah)?"
58They said: "We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin,
59"Excepting the adherents of Lüt: them We are certainly (charged) to save (from harm),- All -
60"Except his wife, who, We have ascertained, will be among those who will lag behind."
61At length when the messengers arrived among the adherents of Lüt,
62He said: "Ye appear to be uncommon folk."
63They said: "Yea, we have come to thee to accomplish that of which they doubt.
64"We have come to thee with the truth, and assuredly we tell the truth.
65"Then travel by night with thy household, when a portion of the night (yet remains), and do thou go behind them: let no one amongst you look back, but pass on whithe f64 r ye are ordered."
66And We made known this decree to him, that the last remnants of those (sinners) should be cut off by the morning.
67The inhabitants of the City came in (mad) joy (at news of the young men).
68Lüt said: "These are my guests: disgrace me not:
69"But fear Allah, and shame me not."
70They said: "Did we not forbid thee (to speak) for all and sundry?"
71He said: "There are my daughters (to marry), if ye must act (so)."
72Verily, by thy life (O Prophet), in their wild intoxication, they wander in distraction, to and fro.
73But the (mighty) Blast overtook them at sunrise,
74And We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay.
75Behold! in this are Signs for those who by tokens do understand.
76And the (cities were) right on the high-road.
77Behold! in this is a sign for those who believed.
78And the Companions of the Wood were also wrong-doers;
79So We exacted retribution from them. They were both on an open highway, plain to see.
80The Companions of the Rocky Tract also rejected the messengers:
81We sent them Our Sings, but they persisted in turning away from them.
82Out of the mountains did they hew (their) edifices, (feeling themselves) secure.
83But the (mighty) Blast seized them of a morning,
84And of no avail to them was all that they did (with such art and care)!
85We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, but for just ends. And the Hour is surely coming (when this will be manifest). So overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.
86For verily it is thy Lord Who is the All-Creator, knowing all things.
87And We have bestowed upon thee the Seven Oft-repeated (verses) and the Grand Quran.
88Strain not thine eyes. (Wistfully) at what We have bestowed on certain classes of them, nor grieve over them: but lower thy wing (in gentleness) to the believers.
89And say: "I am indeed he that warneth openly and without ambiguity,"-
90(Of just such wrath) as We sent down on those who divided (Scripture into arbitrary parts),-
91(So also on such) as have made Quran into shreds (as they please).
92Therefore, by thy Lord, We will, of a surety, call them to account,
93For all their deeds.
94Therefore expound openly what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with Allah.
95For sufficient are We unto thee against those who scoff,-
96Those who adopt, with Allah, another god: but soon will they come to know.
97We do indeed know how thy heart is distressed at what they say.
98But celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and be of those who prostrate themselves in adoration.
99And serve thy Lord until there come unto thee the Hour that is Certain.
