1 . By the angels ranged in ranks.
2 . By the angels driving away.
3 . By the angels reciting the praise.
4 . Verily your God is One.
5 . Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatsoever is in- between the twain, and Lord of the easts.
6 . Verily We! We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment: the stars.
7 . And have placed therein a guard against any Satan froward.
8 . They cannot listen to the exalted assembly, and they are darted at from every side.
9 . With a driving fusillade, and theirs shall be a torment perpetual;
10 . Except him who snatcheth away a word by stealth, and him then pursueth a glowing flame.
11 . Ask them thou: are they stronger in structure or those others whom We have created? Verily We! We have created them of a sticky clay.
12 . Aye! thou marvellest, and they scoff.
13 . And when they are admonished, they receive not admcnition.
14 . And when they behold a sign, they turn to scoffing.
15 . And they say: this Qur´an is naught but magic manifest.
16 . When we have become dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then verily be raised?
17 . And also our forefathers?
18 . Say thou: and verily ye; shall then be despicable.
19 . It shall be but one shout, lo! they shall be staring.
20 . And they will say: Ah! woe be Unto us! this is the Day of Requital.
21 . This is the Day of Judgment which ye were wont to belie.
22 . Gather together those who did wrong and their comrades and that which they were wont to worship
23 . Beside Allah, and lead them on to the path of the Flaming Fire.
24 . And stop them; verily they are to be questioned:
25 . What aileth you that ye succour not one another?
26 . Nay! on that Day they will be entirely submissive.
27 . And they will advance toward each other mutually questioning.
28 . They will say: verily ye! ye were wont to come Unto us Imposing.
29 . They will say: nay! ye yourselves were not believers.
30 . And we had over you no authority, but ye were a people exorbitant.
31 . So on us hath been justified the sentence of our Lord: verily we are to taste.
32 . We seduced you astray; verily we were ourselves the seduced ones.
33 . So verily on that Day they all in the torment will be sharers.
34 . Verily We! in this wise We deal with the culprits.
35 . Verily when it was said Unto them: there is no god but Allah, they ever grew stiff-necked.
36 . And they said: are we going to abandon our gods on account of a Poet distracted?
37 . Aye! he hath come with the truth, and he confesseth to the sent ones.
38 . Verily ye are going to taste a torment afflictive.
39 . And ye shall be required not except for that which ye have been doing;
40 . But the bondmen of Allah, the sincere ones -
41 . Those! theirs shall be a provision known:
42 . Fruits! And they shall be honoured.
43 . In Gardens of Delight.
44 . On couches, facing one another.
45 . Round shall be passed a cup Unto them filled with limpid drink:
46 . White, a pleasure Unto the drinkers.
47 . No headiness there shall be therein, nor shall they be therewith Inebriated.
48 . And with them shall be damsels of refraining looks, large- eyed
49 . As though they were eggs hidden.
50 . Then they will advance Unto each other, mutually questioning.
51 . And a speaker from among them will say: verily there was Unto me a mate.
52 . Who said: art thou of those who confess to the doctrine of Resurrection:
53 . When we are dead and have become dust and bones, are we indeed going to be requited?
54 . Allah will say: will ye look down?
55 . Then he will look down and see him in the midst of the Flaming Fire.
56 . And he will say: by Allah, thou hadst wellnigh causedest me to perish.
57 . And but for the favourcf my lord, I should have been of those brought forward.
58 . Are we not then to die
59 . Save our first death, and are we not to be tormented?
60 . Verily this! that is the supreme achievement.
61 . For the like of this, then, let the workers work.
62 . Is this better as an entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum?
63 . Verily We! We have made it a temptation for the wrong- doers.
64 . Verily it is a tree that springeth forth in the bottom of Flaming Fire.
65 . The fruit thereof is as though the hoods of the serpents.
66 . And verily they must eat thereof and fill their bellies therewith.
67 . And thereafter verily they shall have thereon a draught of balling water.
68 . And thereafter verily their return is Unto the Flaming Fire.
69 . Verily they found their fathers gone astray.
70 . So they in their footsteps are rushing.
71 . And assuredly there went stray before them many of the ancients.
72 . And assuredly We sent among them warners.
73 . So behold what wise hath been the end of those who were warned.
74 . Save the bondmen of Allah sincere.
75 . And assuredly Nuh cried Unto us; and We are the Best of answerers!
76 . And We delivered him and his people from the great affliction.
77 . And his offspring! them We made the survivors.
78 . And We left for him among the posterity.
79 . Peace be on Nuh among the worlds.
80 . Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
81 . Verily he was of Our bondmen believing.
82 . Then We drowned the others.
83 . And verily of his sect was Ibrahim.
84 . Recall what time he came Unto his lord with a heart whole.
85 . Recall what time he said Unto his father and his people: What is it that ye worship?
86 . Is it a falsehood-god beside Allah - that ye desire?
87 . what, then, is your opinion of the Lord of the worlds?
88 . Then he glanced a glance on the stars.
89 . And he said: verily I am about to be sick.
90 . So they departed from him turning their backs.
91 . Then he slipped Unto their gods and said: eat ye not
92 . What aileth ye that ye speak not?
93 . Then he slipped Unto them striking them with the right hand.
94 . Then they advanced toward him, hastening.
95 . He said: worship ye that which carve.
96 . Whereas Allah hath created you and that which ye make?
97 . They said. build for him a building and cast him into the flaming fire.
98 . And they devised a plot for him, but We made them the humble.
99 . And he said: verily I am going to my Lord who will guide me.
100 . My Lord! Bestow on me a son who will be of the righteous.
101 . Wherefore We gave him the glad tidings of a boy gentle.
102 . And when he attained the age of, running with him, he said: O my son! verily I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering thee; so look, what considerest thou? He said: O my father! do that which thou art commanded; thou shalt find me, Allah willing, of the patients.
103 . Then when the twain had submitted themselves and he had prostrated him upon his temple.
104 . We cried Unto him: O Ibrahim
105 . Of a surety thou hast fulfilled the vision. Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
106 . Verily that! that was a trial manifest.
107 . And We ransomed him with a mighty victim.
108 . And We left for him among the posterity:
109 . Peace be Unto Ibrahim:
110 . Verily We! thus We compense the well-doers.
111 . Verily he was one of Our believing bondmen.
112 . And We gave him the glad tidings of Is-haq, a prophet, and of the righteous.
113 . And We blessed him and Is-haq; and of their offspring are some well-doers and some who wrong themselves manifestly.
114 . And assuredly We gave grace Unto Musa and Harun.
115 . And delivered them and their people from the great affliction.
116 . And We succoured them so that they became overcomers.
117 . And We vouchsafed Unto the twain a Book luminous.
118 . And We led the twain on Unto the straight path.
119 . And We left for the twain among the posterity:
120 . Peace be Unto Musa and Harun.
121 . Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
122 . Verily the twain were of Our bondmen believing.
123 . And verily, llyas was one of the sent ones.
124 . Recall what time he said Unto his people: fear ye not?
125 . Call ye upon Bal and forsake the Best of creators.
126 . Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers?
127 . Then they belied him, so verily they are to be brought up.
128 . Except the bondmen of Allah sincere.

131 . Verily We! thus We recompense the well-doers.
132 . Verily he was one of Our bondmen believing.
133 . And verily Lut was of the sent ones.
134 . Recall what time We delivered him and his household, all.
135 . Save an old woman among the lingerers.
136 . Then We annihilated the others.
137 . And surely ye pass by them in the morning.
138 . And at night. Will ye not therefore reflect?
139 . And verily Yunus was Of the sent ones.
140 . Recall what time he ran away Unto a laden ship.
141 . Then he joined the lots, and was of the condemned.
142 . And a fish swallowed him, and he was reproaching himself.
143 . And had he not been of those who hallow Him,
144 . He would have tarried in the belly thereof till the Day when they are raised.
145 . Then We cast him on a bare desert whilst he was sick.
146 . And We caused to grow over him a tree, a gourd.
147 . And We had sent him to a hundred thousand: rather they exceeded.
148 . And they believed, whrefore We let them enjoy life for a season.
149 . Now ask thou them: there for thy Lord daughters and for them sons?
150 . Or created We the angels females while they were witnesses?
151 . Lo! verily it is of their falsehood that they say:
152 . God hath begotten. Verily they are the liars.
153 . Hath He chosen daughters above sons?
154 . What aileth you? How judge ye?
155 . Will ye not then be admonished?
156 . Or, is there for you a clear warranty
157 . Then bring your book, if ye say sooth.
158 . And they have made a kinship between Him and the jinn a kinship whereas the jinn assuredly know that they are to be brought up
159 . Hallowed be Allah from that which they ascribe to Him.
160 . Except the bondmen of Allah sincere.
161 . Wherefore verily neither ye nor that which ye worship,
162 . Can tempt anyone to rebel against Him.
163 . Save him Who is to roast in the Flaming Fire.
164 . Of us there is none but hath a station assigned.
165 . And verily we! we are ranged in ranks.
166 . And verily we! we halloW.
167 . And they surely were wont to say:
168 . Had we but an admonition as had the ancients.
169 . Surefy we would have been the bondmen of God sincere.
170 . Yet they disbelieve therein. Presently they shall come to know.
171 . And assuredly Our word hath already gone forth Our bondmen, the sent ones:
172 . That verily they! they shall be made triumphant.
173 . And verily Our host! they are to be overcome.
174 . So turn thou aside from them for a season.
175 . And see them thou; they themselves shall presently see.
176 . Our torment seek they to hasten on!
177 . Then when it descendeth Unto them face to, face, a hapless morn that shall be for those who were Warned.
178 . And turn thou aside from them for a season.
179 . And see thou: they themselves shall presently see.
180 . Hallowed be thine Lord, the Lord of Majesty, from that which they ascribe!
181 . And peace be Unto the sent ones.
182 . And all praise Unto Allah the Lord of the worlds.
