;

1 . Ya Sin.

2 . By the wise Qur´an,

3 . Lo! thou art of those sent

4 . On a straight path,

5 . A revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful,

6 . That thou mayst warn a folk whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless.

7 . Already hath the judgment, (for their infidelity) proved true of most of them, for they believe not.

8 . Lo! We have put on their necks carcans reaching unto the chins, so that they are made stiff-necked.

9 . And We have set a bar before them and a bar behind them, and (thus) have covered them so that they see not.

10 . Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not, it is alike for them, for they believe not.

11 . Thou warnest only him who followeth the Reminder and feareth the Beneficent in secret. To him bear tidings of forgiveness and a rich reward.

12 . Lo! We it is Who bring the dead to life. We record that which they send before (them, and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear Register.

13 . Coin for them a similitude: The people of the city when those sent (from Allah) came unto them;

14 . When We sent unto them twain, and they denied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said: Lo! we have been sent unto you.

15 . They said: Ye are but mortals like unto us. The Beneficent hath naught revealed. Ye do but lie!

16 . They answered: Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you,

17 . And our duty is but plain conveyance (of the message).

18 . (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands.

19 . They said: Your evil augury be with you! Is it because ye are reminded (of the truth)? Nay, but ye are froward folk!

20 . And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent!

21 . Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided.

22 . For what cause should I not serve Him Who hath created me, and unto Whom ye will be brought back?

23 . Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me naught, nor can they save?

24 . Then truly I should be in error manifest.

25 . Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me!

26 . It was said (unto him): Enter paradise. He said: Would that my people knew

27 . With what (munificence) my Lord hath pardoned me and made me of the honoured ones!

28 . We sent not down against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We ever send.

29 . It was but one Shout, and lo! they were extinct.

30 . Ah, the anguish for the bondmen! Never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him!

31 . Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which indeed returned not unto them;

32 . But all, without exception, will be brought before Us.

33 . A token unto them is the dead earth. We revive it, and We bring forth from it grain so that they eat thereof;

34 . And We have placed therein gardens of the date-palm and grapes, and We have caused springs of water to gush forth therein,

35 . That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands made it not. Will they not, then, give thanks?

36 . Glory be to Him Who created all the sexual pairs, of that which the earth groweth, and of themselves, and of that which they know not!

37 . A token unto them is night. We strip it of the day, and lo! they are in darkness.

38 . And the sun runneth on unto a resting-place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.

39 . And for the moon We have appointed mansions till she return like an old shrivelled palm-leaf.

40 . It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.

41 . And a token unto them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship,

42 . And have created for them of the like thereof whereon they ride.

43 . And if We will, We drown them, and there is no help for them, neither can they be saved;

44 . Unless by mercy from Us and as comfort for a while.

45 . When it is said unto them: Beware of that which is before you and that which is behind you, that haply ye may find mercy (they are heedless).

46 . Never came a token of the tokens of their Lord to them, but they did turn away from it!

47 . And when it is said unto them: Spend of that wherewith Allah hath provided you, those who disbelieve say unto those who believe: Shall we feed those whom Allah, if He willed, would feed? Ye are in naught else than error manifest.

48 . And they say: When will this promise be fulfilled, if ye are truthful?

49 . They await but one Shout, which will surprise them while they are disputing.

50 . Then they cannot make bequest, nor can they return to their own folk.

51 . And the trumpet is blown and lo! from the graves they hie unto their Lord,

52 . Crying: Woe upon us! Who hath raised us from our place of sleep? This is that which the Beneficent did promise, and the messengers spoke truth.

53 . It is but one Shout, and behold them brought together before Us!

54 . This day no soul is wronged in aught; nor are ye requited aught save what ye used to do.

55 . Lo! those who merit paradise this day are happily employed,

56 . They and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining;

57 . Theirs the fruit (of their good deeds) and theirs (all) that they ask;

58 . The word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace!

59 . But avaunt ye, O ye guilty, this day!

60 . Did I not charge you, O ye sons of Adam, that ye worship not the devil - Lo! he is your open foe! -

61 . But that ye worship Me? That was the right path.

62 . Yet he hath led astray of you a great multitude. Had ye then no sense?

63 . This is hell which ye were promised (if ye followed him).

64 . Burn therein this day for that ye disbelieved.

65 . This day We seal up their mouths, and their hands speak out to Us and their feet bear witness as to what they used to earn.

66 . And had We willed, We verily could have quenched their eyesight so that they should struggle for the way. Then how could they have seen?

67 . And had We willed, We verily could have fixed them in their place, making them powerless to go forward or turn back.

68 . He whom we bring unto old age, We reverse him in creation (making him go back to weakness after strength). Have ye then no sense?

69 . And We have not taught him (Muhammad) poetry, nor is it meet for him. This is naught else than a Reminder and a Lecture making plain,

70 . To warn whosoever liveth, and that the word may be fulfilled against the disbelievers.

71 . Have they not seen how We have created for them of Our handiwork the cattle, so that they are their owners,

72 . And have subdued them unto them, so that some of them they have for riding, some for food?

73 . Benefits and (divers) drinks have they from them. Will they not then give thanks?

74 . And they have taken (other) gods beside Allah, in order that they may be helped.

75 . It is not in their power to help them; but they (the worshippers) are unto them a host in arms.

76 . So let not their speech grieve thee (O Muhammad). Lo! We know what they conceal and what proclaim.

77 . Hath not man seen that We have created him from a drop of seed? Yet lo! he is an open opponent.

78 . And he hath coined for Us a similitude, and hath forgotten the fact of his creation, saying: Who will revive these bones when they have rotted away?

79 . Say: He will revive them Who produced them at the first, for He is Knower of every creation,

80 . Who hath appointed for you fire from the green tree, and behold! ye kindle from it.

81 . Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the like of them? Aye, that He is! for He is the All-Wise Creator,

82 . But His command, when He intendeth a thing, is only that He saith unto it: Be! and it is.

83 . Therefor Glory be to Him in Whose hand is the dominion over all things! Unto Him ye will be brought back.
