|6||And how many a Prophet have We sent amongst the men of old.
|7||And never came there a Prophet to them but they used to mock at him.
|8||Then We destroyed men stronger (in power) than these, and the example of the ancients has passed away (before them).
indeed if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?"
They will surely say: "The All-Mighty, the All-Knower created them."
|10||Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way,
Who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure. Then We revive
a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the

He has children, and considering them as equals or co-partners in

|16||Or has He taken daughters out of what He has created, and He has selected for you sons?
if one of them is informed of the news of (the birth of) that which he
set forth as a parable to the Most Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. of a girl),
his face becomes dark, gloomy, and he is filled with grief!
they then like for Allah) a creature who is brought up in adornments
(wearing silk and gold ornaments, i.e. women), and in dispute cannot
make herself clear?
they make the angels who themselves are slaves to the Most Beneficent
(Allah) females. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be
recorded, and they will be questioned!
they said: "If it had been the Will of the Most Beneficent (Allah), we
should not have worshipped them (false deities)." They have no knowledge
whatsoever of that. They do nothing but lie!
|21||Or have We given them any Book before this (the Quran), to which they are holding fast?
|22||Nay! They say: "We found our fathers following a certain way and religion, and we guide ourselves by their footsteps."
similarly, We sent not a warner before you (O Muhammad SAW) to any town
(people) but the luxurious ones among them said: "We found our fathers
following a certain way and religion, and we will indeed follow their
warner) said: "Even if I bring you better guidance than that which you
found your fathers following?" They said: "Verily, We disbelieve in that
with which you have been sent."
|25||So We took revenge of them, then see what was the end of those who denied (Islamic Monotheism).
|26||And (remember) when Ibraheem (Abraham) said to his father and his people: "Verily, I am innocent of what you worship,
|27||"Except Him (i.e. I worship none but Allah Alone) Who did create me, and verily, He will guide me."
he made it (i.e. La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be
worshipped but Allah Alone)) a Word lasting among his offspring (True
Monotheism), that they may turn back (i.e. to repent to Allah or receive
but I gave (the good things of this life) to these (polytheists) and
their fathers to enjoy, till there came to them the truth (the Quran),
and a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) making things clear.
when the truth (this Quran) came to them, they (the disbelievers in
this Quran) said: "This is magic, and we disbelieve therein."
|31||And they say: "Why is not this Quran sent down to some great man of the two towns (Makkah and Taif)?"
it they who would portion out the Mercy of your Lord? It is We Who
portion out between them their livelihood in this world, and We raised
some of them above others in ranks, so that some may employ others in
their work. But the Mercy (Paradise) of your Lord (O Muhammad SAW) is
better than the (wealth of this world) which they amass.
were it not that all mankind would have become of one community (all
disbelievers, desiring worldly life only), We would have provided for
those who disbelieve in the Most Beneficent (Allah), silver roofs for
their houses, and elevators (and stair-ways, etc. of silver) whereby
|34||And for their houses, doors (of silver), and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline,

elevators, thrones etc. of their houses) would have been nothing but an
enjoyment of this world. And the Hereafter with your Lord is only for
whosoever turns away (blinds himself) from the remembrance of the Most
Beneficent (Allah) (i.e. this Quran and worship of Allah), We appoint
for him Shaitan (Satan devil) to be a Qareen (an intimate companion) to

when (such a one) comes to Us, he says (to his Qareen (Satan / devil
companion)) "Would that between me and you were the distance of the two
easts (or the east and west)" a worst (type of) companion (indeed)!
will profit you not this Day (O you who turn away from Allahs
remembrance and His worship, etc.) as you did wrong, (and) that you will
be sharers (you and your Qareen) in the punishment.
|40||Can you (O Muhammad SAW) make the deaf to hear, or can you guide the blind or him who is in manifest error?
|41||And even if We take you (O Muhammad SAW) away, We shall indeed take vengeance on them.
|42||Or (if) We show you that wherewith We threaten them, then verily, We have perfect command over them.
|43||So hold you (O Muhammad SAW) fast to that which is inspired in you. Verily, you are on a Straight Path.
verily, this (the Quran) is indeed a Reminder for you (O Muhammad SAW)
and your people (Quraish people, or your followers), and you will be
questioned (about it).
ask (O Muhammad SAW) those of Our Messengers whom We sent before you:
"Did We ever appoint aliha (gods) to be worshipped besides the Most
indeed We did send Moosa (Moses) with Our Ayat (proofs, evidences,
verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) to Firaun (Pharaoh) and his
chiefs (inviting them to Allahs Religion of Islam) He said: "Verily, I
am a Messenger of the Lord of the Alameen (mankind, jinns and all that
when he came to them with Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.) behold! They laughed at them.
not an Ayah (sign, etc.) We showed them but it was greater than its
fellow, and We seized them with torment, in order that they might turn
(from their polytheism to Allahs Religion (Islamic Monotheism)).
they said (to Moosa (Moses)): "O you sorcerer! Invoke your Lord for us
according to what He has covenanted with you. Verily, We shall guide
when We removed the torment from them, behold! They broke their
covenant (that they will believe if We remove the torment for them).
Firaun (Pharaoh) proclaimed among his people, saying: "O my people! Is
not mine the dominion of Egypt, and these rivers flowing underneath me.
See you not then?
I not better than this one (Moosa (Moses)), who is Maheen (has no
honour nor any respect, and is weak and despicable) and can scarcely
express himself clearly?
|53||"Why then are not golden bracelets bestowed on him, or angels sent along with him?"
he (Firaun (Pharaoh)) befooled and misled his people, and they obeyed
him. Verily, they were ever a people who were Fasiqoon (rebellious,
disobedient to Allah).
|55||So when they angered Us, We punished them, and drowned them all.
|56||And We made them a precedent (as a lesson for those coming after them), and an example to later generations.
when the son of Maryam (Mary) is quoted as an example (i.e. Iesa
(Jesus) is worshipped like their idols), behold! Your people cry aloud
(laugh out at the example).
say: "Are our aliha (gods) better or is he (Iesa (Jesus))?" They quoted
not the above example except for argument. Nay! But they are a
quarrelsome people. ((See VV. 21:97-101) - The Quran.)
(Iesa (Jesus)) was not more than a slave. We granted Our Favour to him,
and We made him an example to the Children of Israel (i.e. his creation
without a father).
if it were Our Will, We would have (destroyed you (mankind) all, and)
made angels to replace you on the earth. (Tafsir At-Tabaree, Vol:25,
he (Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)) shall be a known sign for (the
coming of) the Hour (Day of Resurrection) (i.e. Iesas (Jesus) descent on
the earth) . Therefore have no doubt concerning it (i.e. the Day of
Resurrection). And follow Me (Allah) (i.e. be obedient to Allah and do
what He orders you to do, O mankind)! This is the Straight Path (of
Islamic Monotheism, leading to Allah and to His Paradise).
let not Shaitan (Satan) hinder you (from the right religion, i.e.
Islamic Monotheism), Verily, he (Satan) to you is a plain enemy.
when Iesa (Jesus) came with (Our) clear Proofs, he said: "I have come
to you with Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and in order to make clear to you
some of the (points) in which you differ, therefore fear Allah and obey
Allah! He is my Lord (God) and your Lord (God). So worship Him (Alone).
This is the (only) Straight Path (i.e. Allahs religion of true Islamic
the sects from among themselves differed. So woe to those who do wrong
(by ascribing things to Iesa (Jesus) that are not true) from the torment
of a painful Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)!
|66||Do they only wait for the Hour that it shall come upon them suddenly, while they perceive not?
|67||Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqoon (pious - see V.2:2).
will be said to the true believers of Islamic Monotheism): My
worshippers! No fear shall be on you this Day, nor shall you grieve,
who believed in Our Ayat (proofs, verses, lessons, signs, revelations,
etc.) and were Muslims (i.e. who submit totally to Allahs Will, and
believe in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism).

of gold and cups will be passed round them, (there will be) therein all
that the ones inner-selves could desire, all that the eyes could
delight in, and you will abide therein forever.
|72||This is the Paradise which you have been made to inherit because of your deeds which you used to do (in the life of the world).
|73||Therein for you will be fruits in plenty, of which you will eat (as you desire).
|74||Verily, the Mujrimoon (criminals, sinners, disbelievers, etc.) will be in the torment of Hell to abide therein forever.
torment) will not be lightened for them, and they will be plunged into
destruction with deep regrets, sorrows and in despair therein.
|76||We wronged them not, but they were the Zalimoon (polytheists, wrong-doers, etc.).
|77||And they will cry: "O Malik (Keeper of Hell)! Let your Lord make an end of us." He will say: "Verily you shall abide forever."
|78||Indeed We have brought the truth (Muhammad SAW with the Quran), to you, but most of you have a hatred for the truth.
|79||Or have they plotted some plan? Then We too are planning.
do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private counsel?
(Yes We do) and Our Messengers (appointed angels in charge of mankind)
are by them, to record.
(O Muhammad SAW): "If the Most Beneficent (Allah) had a son (or
children as you pretend), then I am the first of Allahs worshippers (who
deny and refute this claim of yours (and the first to believe in Allah
Alone and testify that He has no children))." (Tafsir At-Tabaree).
|82||Glorified be the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne! Exalted be He from all that they ascribe (to Him).
|83||So leave them (alone) to speak nonsense and play until they meet the Day of theirs, which they have been promised.
is He (Allah) Who is the only Ilah (God to be worshipped) in the heaven
and the only Ilah (God to be worshipped) on the earth. And He is the
All-Wise, the All-Knower.
blessed be He to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth,
and all that is between them, and with Whom is the knowledge of the
Hour, and to Whom you (all) will be returned.
those whom they invoke instead of Him have no power of intercession;
except those who bear witness to the truth (i.e. believed in the Oneness
of Allah, and obeyed His Orders), and they know (the facts about the
Oneness of Allah) .
if you ask them who created them, they will surely say: "Allah". How
then are they turned away (from the worship of Allah, Who created them)?
|88||(Allah has knowledge) of (Prophet Muhammads) saying: "O my Lord! Verily, these are a people who believe not!"
|89||So turn away from them (O Muhammad SAW), and say: Salam (peace)! But they will come to know.
