Ya Sin (Ya Sin)
(36:0) In the name of God, the Gracious, the Compassionate.
(36:2) By the wise Quran.
(36:3) You are one of the messengers.
(36:4) Upon a straight path.
(36:5) The revelation of the Honorable, the Compassionate.
(36:6) To warn a people whose fathers were not warned, for they are unaware.
(36:7) The retribution has been deserved by most of them, for they do not acknowledge.
(36:8) We have placed shackles around their necks, up to their chins, so that they are forced in direction.
(36:9) We have placed a barrier in front of them, and a barrier behind them, thus We shielded them so they cannot see.
(36:10) Whether you warn them or do not warn them, they will not acknowledge.
(36:11) You can only warn him who follows the reminder, and reverences the Gracious while unseen. Give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward.
(36:12) It is indeed Us who resurrect the dead, and We record what they have done and left behind. Everything We have counted in a clear ledger.
(36:13) Cite for them the example of the people of the town, when the messengers came to it.
(36:14) Where We sent two to them, but they rejected them, so We supported them with a third one, thus they said, "We are messengers to you."
(36:15) They replied: "You are but human beings like us, and the Gracious did not send down anything, you are only telling lies."
(36:16) They said, "Our Lord knows that we have been sent to you."
(36:17) "We are only required to give a clear delivery."
(36:18) They replied: "We have welcomed you better than you deserve. If you do not cease, we will stone/excommunicate you, and you will receive a painful retribution from us!"
(36:19) They said, "Keep your welcome with you, for you have been reminded. Indeed, you are transgressing people."
(36:20) A man came running from the farthest part of the city, saying: "O my people, follow the messengers."
(36:21) "Follow those who do not ask you for any wage, and are guided."
(36:22) "Why should I not serve the One who initiated me, and to Him is your ultimate return?"
(36:23) "Shall I take gods besides Him? If the Gracious intends any harm for me, their intercession cannot help me in the least, nor can they save me."
(36:24) "Then I would be clearly astray."
(36:25) "I have acknowledged your Lord, so listen to me!"
(36:26) It was said, "Enter Paradise." He said "Oh, how I wish my people only knew!"
(36:27) "Of what my Lord has forgiven me, and made me of the honored ones."
(36:28) We did not send down upon his people after him soldiers from the sky; for there was no need to send them down.
(36:29) For all it took was one scream, whereupon they were stilled.
(36:30) Alas for the servants. For every time a messenger went to them, they would ridicule him.
(36:31) Did they not see how many generations We destroyed before them; do they not go back to them?
(36:32) How every one of them will be summoned before Us.
(36:33) A sign for them is the dead land, We revive it and produce from it seeds from which they eat.
(36:34) We made in it gardens of date palms, and grapes, and We cause springs to gush forth therein.
(36:35) So that they may eat from its fruits, and what they manufacture with their own hands. Would they be thankful?
(36:36) Praise be to the One who created all pairs from what the earth sprouts out and from themselves, and from what they do not know.
(36:37) A sign for them is the night, We remove the daylight from it, whereupon they are in darkness.
(36:38) The sun runs to a specific destination, such is the design of the Noble, the Knowledgeable.
(36:39) The moon: We have measured it to appear in stages, until it returns to being like an old curved sheath.
(36:40) The sun is not required to overtake the moon, nor will the night precede the day; each of them is swimming in its own orbit.
(36:41) A sign for them is that We carried their ancestors on the charged Ship.
(36:42) We created for them of its similarity, to ride in.
(36:43) If We wished, We could drown them, so that their screaming would not be heard, nor could they be saved.
(36:44) Except through a mercy from Us, and as an enjoyment for awhile.
(36:45) When they are told: "Be aware of your present and your past, that you may attain mercy."
(36:46) No matter what sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, they turn away from it.
(36:47) When they are told: "Spend from what God has provisioned you." Those who reject say to those who acknowledge: "Shall we feed those whom God could feed, if He so willed? You are clearly misguided!"
(36:48) They say, "When is this promise to come, if you are truthful?"
(36:49) They will not realize it when one scream overwhelms them, while they dispute.
(36:50) They will not even be able to leave a will, nor will they be able to return to their people.
(36:51) The horn will be blown, whereupon they will rise from the graves rushing towards their Lord.
(36:52) They will say, "Woe to us. Who has resurrected us from our resting place? This is what the Gracious had promised. The messengers were truthful!"
(36:53) It only took one scream, whereupon they are summoned before Us.
(36:54) On this day, no person will be wronged in the least. You will be recompensed precisely for whatever you did.
(36:55) The dwellers of Paradise will be, on that day, joyfully busy.
(36:56) They and their spouses, both will be shaded, reclining on high furnishings.
(36:57) They will have fruits therein; they will have in it whatever they ask for.
(36:58) "Peace," a word from a Compassionate Lord.
(36:59) "As for you, O criminals, you are singled out."
(36:61) "That you should serve Me? That is a straight path."
(36:62) "He has misled mountain loads of you. Did you not possess any understanding?"
(36:63) "This is hell that you have been promised!"
(36:64) "Burn in it today, as a consequence of your rejection."
(36:65) Today, We shall seal their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness to everything they had done.
(36:66) If We wished, We can blind their eyes, and they would race towards the path, but how would they see?
(36:67) If We wished, We can freeze them in their place; thus, they can neither move forward, nor go back.
(36:68) For whomever We grant a long life, We weaken him in body. Do they not understand?
(36:69) We did not teach him poetry, nor does he need it. This is a reminder and a clear Quran.
(36:70) To warn those who are alive, and so that the retribution will be deserved by the ingrates.
(36:71) Did they not see that We created for them with Our own hands livestock which they own?
(36:72) They were subdued by Us for them. So some they ride, and some they eat.
(36:73) They have in them other benefits, as well as drinks. Would they not be appreciative?
(36:74) They have taken besides God other gods, perhaps they will help them!
(36:75) They cannot help them. They become to them as foot-soldiers.
(36:76) So do not be saddened by what they say. We are fully aware of what they conceal and what they declare.
(36:78) He cites an example for Us, while forgetting his own creation! He says: "Who can resurrect the bones while they are dust?"
(36:79) Say, "The One who made them in the first place will resurrect them. He is fully aware of every creation."
(36:80) The One who produces for you a fire from the green tree, which you burn.
(36:81) Is not the One who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? Yes indeed; He is the Creator, the Knowledgeable.
(36:82) His command, when He wants anything, is to say to it: "Be" and it is!
(36:83) Therefore, praise be to the One in whose Hand is the sovereignty of all things, and to Him you will be returned.
