Al-Hijr (The Stoneland)
(15:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.
(15:1) A1L30R200 these are the signs of the book, and a clear Quran.
(15:2) Those who have rejected will often wish they were of those who peacefully surrendered!
(15:3) Leave them to eat and enjoy, and let them be preoccupied with hope. They will come to know.
(15:4) We have not destroyed any town except that it had an appointed time.
(15:5) No nation can quicken its fate, nor can they delay.
(15:6) They said, "O you upon whom the Reminder has been sent down, you are crazy."
(15:7) "Why not bring us the angels if you are of the truthful ones?"
(15:8) We do not send down the angels except with truth, and then they would have no more respite.
(15:9) We, indeed We, it is We who have sent down the Reminder, and indeed it is We who will preserve it.
(15:10) We have sent before you to the factions of old.
(15:11) Any messenger that came to them, they would mock him.
(15:12) We thus let it sneak into the hearts of the criminals.
(15:13) They do not acknowledge it, while the examples of the early generations has been brought to them.
(15:14) If We opened for them a gate in the sky and they were to continue ascending to it,
(15:15) They would have said, "Our eyes are hallucinating. No, we are a people who are being bewitched!"
(15:17) We have guarded them from every outcast devil.
(15:18) Except he who manages to eavesdrop, he will be pursued clearly by a flaming meteor.
(15:19) As for the land, We have stretched it, placed stabilizers in it, and We have planted in it everything in balance.
(15:20) We made for you in it a habitat, as well as those whom you are not required to provide for.
(15:21) There is not a thing, except that We have vaults of it, yet We only send it down in a measured amount.
(15:22) We have sent the winds to pollinate, and We sent down water from the sky for you to drink. It is not you who store it up.
(15:23) It is indeed We who give life and death, and We are the inheritors.
(15:24) Certainly We know those among you who are progressive, and We know those of you who are regressive.
(15:25) It is your Lord that will gather them. He is Wise, Knowledgeable.
(15:26) We have created the human being from hardened clay of aged mud.
(15:27) The Jinn, We created him before that from the flames of fire.
(15:28) Your Lord said to the angels: "I am creating a human from hardened clay of aged mud."
(15:29) "So when I perfect him, and blow of My Spirit in him, you shall fall prostrate to him."
(15:30) Thus, all of the angels fell prostrate to him,
(15:31) Except for Satan, he refused to be with those who prostrated.
(15:32) He said, "O Satan, what is the matter that you are not with the prostrators?"
(15:33) He said, "I am not to prostrate to a human You have created from a hardened clay of aged mud."
(15:34) He said, "Exit from here, you are cast out."
(15:35) "A curse shall be upon you until the day of judgment."
(15:36) He said, "My Lord, respite me until the day they are resurrected."
(15:37) He said, "You are given respite,"
(15:38) "Until the day of the appointed time."
(15:39) He said, "My Lord, you sent me astray, I will make the earth appear beautiful for them, and I will mislead them all,"
(15:40) "Except Your devoted servants."
(15:41) He said, "This is a straight path to Me."
(15:42) "For My servants, you shall have no authority over them, except those who are misled and follow you."
(15:43) "Hell, shall be the appointed place for them all."
(15:44) "It has seven gates, for every gate will be an assigned segment from them."
(15:45) The righteous will be in paradises and springs.
(15:46) "Enter it in peace and security."
(15:47) We removed all negative feelings in their chests; they are brothers in quarters facing one another.
(15:48) No fatigue shall touch them, nor will they be made to leave from it. (15:49) Inform My servants that I am the
(15:50) That My punishment is a painful retribution.
(15:52) That they entered upon him, they said, "Peace." He said, "We are worrisome of you."
(15:53) They said, "Do not worry, we bring you good news of a knowledgeable son."
(15:54) He said, "What good news can you bring me when old age has come upon me? Is that your good news?"
(15:55) They said, "We have brought you good news with truth, so do not be of those in denial."
(15:56) He said, "Who would deny the mercy of his Lord except the misguided ones!"
(15:57) He said, "What then is your business here, O messengers?"
(15:58) They said, "We have been sent to a people who are criminals;"
(15:59) "Except for the family of Lot, we will save them all;"
(15:60) "Except for his wife, we have measured that she will be with those destroyed."
(15:61) So when the messengers came to the family of Lot.
(15:62) He said, "You are a people unknown to me."
(15:63) They said, "Alas, we have come to you with what they are in doubt."
(15:64) "We have come to you with the truth, and we are forthcoming."
(15:65) "So let your family leave during the last moments of the night, and you follow just behind them, and do not let any of you look back, and go to where you are commanded."
(15:66) We conveyed him the decree, that the remnants of these people will be cut off in the morning.
(15:67) The people of the city came seeking good news.
(15:68) He said, "These are my guests, so do not embarrass me!"
(15:69) "Be aware of God, and do not disgrace me!"
(15:70) They said, "Did we not forbid you from outsiders?"
(15:71) He said, "Here are my daughters if you are going to act."
(15:72) By your life, they are in their drunkenness, blundering.
(15:73) So the scream took them at sunrise.
(15:74) Thus We turned it upside down, and rained upon them with fiery projectiles.
(15:75) In this are signs for those who distinguish.
(15:76) It is on an established path.
(15:77) In that is a sign for those who acknowledge.
(15:78) The dwellers of the forest were wicked.
(15:79) So, We sought revenge from them. They were both on an open plain.
(15:80) The dwellers of the cavern rejected the messengers.
(15:81) We gave them Our signs, but they turned away from them.
(15:82) They used to sculpt from the mountains dwellings that were secure.
(15:83) But the blast took them in the morning.
(15:84) What they earned did not benefit them.
(15:85) We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is in between except with the truth. The moment is coming, so overlook their faults gracefully.
(15:86) Your Lord is the Creator, the Knower.
(15:88) So do not linger with your eyes on what We have bestowed upon some couples from them, do not grieve for them, and lower your wing for those who acknowledge.
(15:89) Say, "I am a manifest warner."
(15:90) As We have sent down on the dividers.
(15:91) The ones who have taken the Quran apart.
(15:92) By your Lord, We will ask them all.
(15:93) Regarding what they used to do.
(15:94) So proclaim what you have been commanded and turn away from those who set up partners.
(15:95) We will relieve you from the mockers.
(15:96) Those who sat up with God another god; they will come to know.
(15:97) We know that your chest is strained by what they say.
(15:98) So glorify with the praise of your Lord, and be of those who prostrate.
(15:99) Serve your Lord until certainty comes to you.
