people of Nooh (Noah) and the confederates after them denied (their
Messengers) before these, and every (disbelieving) nation plotted
against their Messenger to seize him, and disputed by means of falsehood
to refute therewith the truth. So I seized them (with punishment), and
how (terrible) was My punishment!

(angels) who bear the Throne (of Allah) and those around it glorify the
praises of their Lord, and believe in Him, and ask forgiveness for
those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah) (saying): "Our Lord! You
comprehend all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who
repent and follow Your Way, and save them from the torment of the
Lord! And make them enter the Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens)

and whomsoever You save from (the punishment, because of what they did
of) the sins (i.e. excuse them) that Day, him verily, You have taken

who disbelieve will be addressed (at the time of entering into the
Fire): "Allahs aversion was greater towards you (in the worldly life
when you used to reject the Faith) than your aversion towards one
another (now in the Fire of Hell, as you are now enemies to one
another), when you were called to the Faith but you used to refuse."
will say: "Our Lord! You have made us to die twice (i.e. we were dead
in the loins of our fathers and dead after our deaths in this world),
and You have given us life twice (i.e. life when we were born and life
when we are Resurrected)! Now we confess our sins, then is there any way
to get out (of the Fire)?"
will be said): "This is because, when Allah Alone was invoked (in
worship, etc.) you disbelieved, but when partners were joined to Him,
you believed! So the judgement is only with Allah, the Most High, the
is He, Who shows you His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,

worshipping and obeying Him Alone and none else).

Allah. Whose is the kingdom this Day? (Allah Himself will reply to His
Question): It is Allahs the One, the Irresistible!

warn them (O Muhammad SAW) of the Day that is drawing near (i.e. the
Day of Resurrection), when the hearts will be choking the throats, and
they can neither return them (hearts) to their chests nor can they throw
them out. There will be no friend, nor an intercessor for the Zalimoon
(polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.), who could be given heed to.

Allah judges with truth, while those to whom they invoke besides Him,
cannot judge anything. Certainly, Allah! He is the All-Hearer, the

were before them? They were superior to them in strength, and in the

punishment for their sins. And none had they to protect them from Allah.
was because there came to them their Messengers with clear evidences,
proofs and signs but they disbelieved (in them). So Allah seized them
with punishment. Verily, He is All-Strong, Severe in punishment.
indeed We sent Moosa (Moses) with Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses,
lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), and a manifest authority,
|24||To Firaun (Pharaoh), Haman and Qaroon (Korah), but they called (him): "A sorcerer, a liar!"
when he brought them the Truth from Us, they said: "Kill the sons of
those who believe with him and let their women live", but the plots of
disbelievers are nothing but errors!
(Pharaoh) said: "Leave me to kill Moosa (Moses), and let him call his
Lord (to stop me from killing him)! I fear that he may change your
religion, or that he may cause mischief to appear in the land!"
(Moses) said: "Verily, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from
every arrogant who believes not in the Day of Reckoning!"
a believing man of Firauns (Pharaoh) family, who hid his faith said:
"Would you kill a man because he says: My Lord is Allah, and he has come
to you with clear signs (proofs) from your Lord? And if he is a liar,
upon him will be (the sin of) his lie; but if he is telling the truth,
then some of that (calamity) wherewith he threatens you will befall on
you." Verily, Allah guides not one who is a Musrif (a polytheist, or a
murderer who shed blood without a right, or those who commit great sins,
oppressor, transgressor), a liar!
my people! Yours is the kingdom this day, you are uppermost in the
land. But who will save us from the Torment of Allah, should it befall
us?" Firaun (Pharaoh) said: "I show you only that which I see (correct),
and I guide you only to the path of right policy!"
|30||And he who believed said: "O my people! Verily, I fear for you a fate like that day (of disaster) of the Confederates (of old)!
the fate of the people of Nooh (Noah), and Ad, and Thamood and those
who came after them. And Allah wills no injustice for (His) slaves.
O my people! Verily! I fear for you the Day when there will be mutual
calling (between the people of Hell and of Paradise)."
Day when you will turn your backs and flee having no protector from
Allah, And whomsoever Allah sends astray, for him there is no guide.
indeed Yoosuf (Joseph) did come to you, in times gone by, with clear
signs, but you ceased not to doubt in that which he did bring to you,
till when he died you said: "No Messenger will Allah send after him."
Thus Allah leaves astray him who is a Musrif (a polytheist, oppressor, a
criminal, sinner who commit great sins) and a Murtab (one who doubts
Allahs Warning and His Oneness).
who dispute about the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs,
revelations, etc.) of Allah, without any authority that has come to
them, it is greatly hateful and disgusting to Allah and to those who
believe. Thus does Allah seal up the heart of every arrogant, tyrant.
(So they cannot guide themselves to the Right Path).
|36||And Firaun (Pharaoh) said: "O Haman! Build me a tower that I may arrive at the ways,
ways of the heavens, and I may look upon the Ilah (God) of Moosa
(Moses) but verily, I think him to be a liar." Thus it was made
fair-seeming, in Firauns (Pharaoh) eyes, the evil of his deeds, and he
was hindered from the (Right) Path, and the plot of Firaun (Pharaoh) led
to nothing but loss and destruction (for him).
the man who believed said: "O my people! Follow me, I will guide you to
the way of right conduct (i.e. guide you to Allahs religion of Islamic
Monotheism with which Moosa (Moses) has been sent).
my people! Truly, this life of the world is nothing but a (quick
passing) enjoyment, and verily, the Hereafter that is the home that will

whosoever does a righteous deed, whether male or female and is a true
believer (in the Oneness of Allah), such will enter Paradise, where they
will be provided therein (with all things in abundance) without limit.
|41||"And O my people! How is it that I call you to salvation while you call me to the Fire!
invite me to disbelieve in Allah (and in His Oneness), and to join
partners in worship with Him; of which I have no knowledge, and I invite
you to the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving!
doubt you call me to (worship) one who cannot grant (me) my request (or
respond to my invocation) in this world or in the Hereafter. And our
return will be to Allah, and Al-Musrifoon (i.e. polytheists and
arrogants, those who commit great sins, the transgressors of Allahs set
limits)! They shall be the dwellers of the Fire!
you will remember what I am telling you, and my affair I leave it to
Allah. Verily, Allah is the All-Seer of (His) slaves."

when the Hour will be established (it will be said to the angels):
"Cause Firauns (Pharaoh) people to enter the severest torment!"
when they will dispute in the Fire, the weak will say to those who were
arrogant; "Verily! We followed you, can you then take from us some
portion of the Fire?"
|48||Those who were arrogant will say: "We are all (together) in this (Fire)! Verily Allah has judged between (His) slaves!"
|49||And those in the Fire will say to the keepers (angels) of Hell: "Call upon your Lord to lighten for us the torment for a day!"
will say: "Did there not come to you, your Messengers with (clear)
evidences and signs? They will say: "Yes." They will reply: "Then call

the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) in this worlds life and on the
Day when the witnesses will stand forth, (i.e. Day of Resurrection),

wrong-doers and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah). Theirs will be

Ibkar (i.e. the time period from early morning or sunrise till before

Salat (prayers) or the Asr and Fajr prayers).
those who dispute about the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, without any authority having come to
them, there is nothing else in their breasts except pride (to accept
you (Muhammad SAW) as a Messenger of Allah and to obey you). They will
never have it (i.e. Prophethood which Allah has bestowed upon you). So
seek refuge in Allah (O Muhammad SAW from the arrogants). Verily, it is

Monotheism)) (and ask Me for anything) I will respond to your

and do not believe in My Oneness, (Islamic Monotheism)) they will
surely enter Hell in humiliation!"

Messengers (i.e. to worship none but Allah Alone sincerely, and to

indeed We have sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad SAW); of some of
them We have related to you their story and of some We have not related
