026.000 The Poets

 

026.001

Ta. Sin. Mim.

026.002

These are revelations of the Scripture that maketh plain.

026.003

It may be that thou tormentest thyself (O Muhammad) because they believe not.

026.004

If We will, We can send down on them from the sky a portent so that their necks would remain bowed before it.

026.005

Never cometh there unto them a fresh reminder from the Beneficent One, but they turn away from it.

026.006

Now they have denied (the Truth); but there will come unto them tidings of that whereat they used to scoff.

026.007

Have they not seen the earth, how much of every fruitful kind We make to grow therein ?

026.008

Lo! herein is indeed a portent; yet most of them are not believers.

026.009

And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.010

And when thy Lord called Moses, saying: Go unto the wrongdoing folk,

026.011

The folk of Pharaoh. Will they not ward off (evil) ?

026.012

He said: My Lord! Lo! I fear that they will deny me,

026.013

And I shall be embarrassed, and my tongue will not speak plainly, therefor send for Aaron (to help me).

026.014

And they have a crime against me, so I fear that they will kill me.

026.015

He said: Nay, verily. So go ye twain with Our tokens. Lo! We shall be with you, Hearing.

026.016

And come together unto Pharaoh and say: Lo! we bear a message of the Lord of the Worlds,

026.017

(Saying): Let the Children of Israel go with us.

026.018

(Pharaoh) said (unto Moses): Did we not rear thee among us as a child ? And thou didst dwell many years of thy life among us,

026.019

And thou didst that thy deed which thou didst, and thou wast one of the ingrates.

026.020

He said: I did it then, when I was of those who are astray.

026.021

Then I fled from you when I feared you, and my Lord vouchsafed me a command and appointed me (of the number) of those sent (by Him).

026.022

And this is the past favour wherewith thou reproachest me: that thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel.

026.023

Pharaoh said: And what is the Lord of the Worlds ?

026.024

(Moses) said: Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if ye had but sure belief.

026.025

(Pharaoh) said unto those around him: Hear ye not ?

026.026

He said: Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers.

026.027

(Pharaoh) said: Lo! your messenger who hath been sent unto you is indeed a madman!

026.028

He said: Lord of the East and the West and all that is between them, if ye did but understand.

026.029

(Pharaoh) said: If thou choosest a god other than me, I assuredly shall place thee among the prisoners.

026.030

He said: Even though I show thee something plain ?

026.031

(Pharaoh) said: Produce it then, if thou art of the truthful!

026.032

Then he flung down his staff and it became a serpent manifest,

026.033

And he drew forth his hand and lo! it was white to the beholders.

026.034

(Pharaoh) said unto the chiefs about him: Lo! this is verily a knowing wizard,

026.035

Who would drive you out of your land by his magic. Now what counsel ye ?

026.036

They said: Put him off, (him) and his brother, and send into the cities summoners

026.037

Who shall bring unto thee every knowing wizard.

026.038

So the wizards were gathered together at a set time on a day appointed.

026.039

And it was said unto the people: Are ye (also) gathering ?

026.040

(They said): Aye, so that we may follow the wizards if they are the winners.

026.041

And when the wizards came they said unto Pharaoh: Will there surely be a reward for us if we are the winners ?

026.042

He said: Aye, and ye will then surely be of those brought near (to me).

026.043

Moses said unto them: Throw what ye are going to throw!

026.044

Then they threw down their cords and their staves and said: By Pharaoh's might, lo! we verily are the winners.

026.045

Then Moses threw his staff and lo! it swallowed that which they did falsely show.

026.046

And the wizards were flung prostrate,

026.047

Crying: We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,

026.048

The Lord of Moses and Aaron.

026.049

(Pharaoh) said: Ye put your faith in him before I give you leave. Lo! he doubtless is your chief who taught you magic! But verily ye shall come to know. Verily I will cut off your hands and your feet alternately, and verily I will crucify you every one.

026.050

They said: It is no hurt, for lo! unto our Lord we shall return.

026.051

Lo! we ardently hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we are the first of the believers.

026.052

And We inspired Moses, saying: Take away My slaves by night, for ye will be pursued.

026.053

Then Pharaoh sent into the cities summoners,

026.054

(Who said): Lo! these indeed are but a little troop,

026.055

And lo! they are offenders against us.

026.056

And lo! we are a ready host.

026.057

Thus did We take them away from gardens and watersprings,

026.058

And treasures and a fair estate.

026.059

Thus (were those things taken from them) and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit them.

026.060

And they overtook them at sunrise.

026.061

And when the two hosts saw each other, those with Moses said: Lo! we are indeed caught.

026.062

He said: Nay, verily! for lo! my Lord is with me. He will guide me.

026.063

Then We inspired Moses, saying: Smite the sea with thy staff. And it parted, and each part was as a mountain vast.

026.064

Then brought We near the others to that place.

026.065

And We saved Moses and those with him, every one;

026.066

And We drowned the others.

026.067

Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.

026.068

And lo, thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.069

Recite unto them the story of Abraham:

026.070

When he said unto his father and his folk: What worship ye ?

026.071

They said: We worship idols, and are ever devoted unto them.

026.072

He said: Do they hear you when ye cry ?

026.073

Or do they benefit or harm you ?

026.074

They said: Nay, but we found our fathers acting on this wise.

026.075

He said: See now that which ye worship,

026.076

Ye and your forefathers!

026.077

Lo! they are (all) an enemy unto me, save the Lord of the Worlds,

026.078

Who created me, and He doth guide me,

026.079

And Who feedeth me and watereth me.

026.080

And when I sicken, then He healeth me,

026.081

And Who causeth me to die, then giveth me life (again),

026.082

And Who, I ardently hope, will forgive me my sin on the Day of Judgment.

026.083

My Lord! Vouchsafe me wisdom and unite me to the righteous.

026.084

And give unto me a good report in later generations.

026.085

And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Delight,

026.086

And forgive my father. Lo! he is of those who err.

026.087

And abase me not on the day when they are raised,

026.088

The day when wealth and sons avail not (any man)

026.089

Save him who bringeth unto Allah a whole heart.

026.090

And the Garden will be brought nigh for those who ward off (evil).

026.091

And hell will appear plainly to the erring.

026.092

And it will be said unto them: Where is (all) that ye used to worship

026.093

Instead of Allah ? Can they help you or help themselves ?

026.094

Then will they be hurled therein, they and the seducers

026.095

And the hosts of Iblis, together.

026.096

And they will say, when they are quarrelling therein:

026.097

By Allah, of a truth we were in error manifest

026.098

When we made you equal with the Lord of the Worlds.

026.099

It was but the guilty who misled us.

026.100

Now we have no intercessors

026.101

Nor any loving friend.

026.102

Oh, that we had another turn (on earth), that we might be of the believers!

026.103

Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers!

026.104

And lo, thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.105

Noah's folk denied the messengers (of Allah),

026.106

When their brother Noah said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

026.107

Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,

026.108

So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.

026.109

And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.

026.110

So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.

026.111

They said: Shall we put faith in thee, when the lowest (of the people) follow thee ?

026.112

He said: And what knowledge have I of what they may have been doing (in the past) ?

026.113

Lo! their reckoning is my Lord's concern, if ye but knew;

026.114

And I am not (here) to repulse believers.

026.115

I am only a plain warner.

026.116

They said: If thou cease not, O Noah, thou wilt surely be among those stoned (to death).

026.117

He said: My Lord! Lo! my own folk deny me.

026.118

Therefor judge Thou between us, a (conclusive) judgment, and save me and those believers who are with me.

026.119

And We saved him and those with him in the laden ship.

026.120

Then afterward We drowned the others.

026.121

Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.

026.122

And lo, thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.123

(The tribe of) A'ad denied the messengers (of Allah).

026.124

When their brother Hud said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

026.125

Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,

026.126

So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.

026.127

And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.

026.128

Build ye on every high place a monument for vain delight ?

026.129

And seek ye out strongholds, that haply ye may last for ever ?

026.130

And if ye seize by force, seize ye as tyrants ?

026.131

Rather keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.

026.132

Keep your duty toward Him Who hath aided you with (the good things) that ye know,

026.133

Hath aided you with cattle and sons.

026.134

And gardens and watersprings.

026.135

Lo! I fear for you the retribution of an awful day.

026.136

They said: It is all one to us whether thou preachest or art not of those who preach;

026.137

This is but a fable of the men of old,

026.138

And we shall not be doomed.

026.139

And they denied him; therefor We destroyed them. Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.

026.140

And lo! thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.141

(The tribe of) Thamud denied the messengers (of Allah)

026.142

When their brother Salih said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

026.143

Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,

026.144

So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.

026.145

And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.

026.146

Will ye be left secure in that which is here before us,

026.147

In gardens and watersprings.

026.148

And tilled fields and heavy-sheathed palm-trees,

026.149

Though ye hew out dwellings in the mountain, being skilful ?

026.150

Therefor keep your duty to Allah and obey me,

026.151

And obey not the command of the prodigal,

026.152

Who spread corruption in the earth, and reform not.

026.153

They said: Thou art but one of the bewitched;

026.154

Thou art but a mortal like us. So bring some token if thou art of the truthful.

026.155

He said: (Behold) this she-camel. She hath the right to drink (at the well), and ye have the right to drink, (each) on an appointed day.

026.156

And touch her not with ill lest there come on you the retribution of an awful day.

026.157

But they hamstrung her, and then were penitent.

026.158

So the retribution came on them. Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.

026.159

And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.160

The folk of Lot denied the messengers (of Allah),

026.161

When their brother Lot said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

026.162

Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,

026.163

So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.

026.164

And I ask of you no wage therefor; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.

026.165

What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males,

026.166

And leave the wives your Lord created for you ? Nay, but ye are froward folk.

026.167

They said: If thou cease not, O Lot, thou wilt soon be of the outcast.

026.168

He said: I am in truth of those who hate your conduct.

026.169

My Lord! Save me and my household from what they do.

026.170

So We saved him and his household, every one,

026.171

Save an old woman among those who stayed behind.

026.172

Then afterward We destroyed the others.

026.173

And We rained on them a rain. And dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned.

026.174

Lo! herein is indeed a portent, yet most of them are not believers.

026.175

And lo! thy Lord, He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.176

The dwellers in the wood (of Midian) denied the messengers (of Allah),

026.177

When Shu'eyb said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil) ?

026.178

Lo! I am a faithful messenger unto you,

026.179

So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.

026.180

And I ask of you no wage for it; my wage is the concern only of the Lord of the Worlds.

026.181

Give full measure, and be not of those who give less (than the due).

026.182

And weigh with the true balance.

026.183

Wrong not mankind in their goods, and do not evil, making mischief, in the earth.

026.184

And keep your duty unto Him Who created you and the generations of the men of old.

026.185

They said: Thou art but one of the bewitched;

026.186

Thou art but a mortal like us, and lo! we deem thee of the liars.

026.187

Then make fragments of the heaven fall upon us, if thou art of the truthful.

026.188

He said: My Lord is Best Aware of what ye do.

026.189

But they denied him, so there came on them the retribution of the day of gloom. Lo! it was the retribution of an awful day.

026.190

Lo! herein is indeed a portent; yet most of them are not believers.

026.191

And lo! thy Lord! He is indeed the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.192

And lo! it is a revelation of the Lord of the Worlds,

026.193

Which the True Spirit hath brought down

026.194

Upon thy heart, that thou mayst be (one) of the warners,

026.195

In plain Arabic speech.

026.196

And lo! it is in the Scriptures of the men of old.

026.197

Is it not a token for them that the doctors of the Children of Israel know it ?

026.198

And if We had revealed it unto one of any other nation than the Arabs,

026.199

And he had read it unto them, they would not have believed in it.

026.200

Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty.

026.201

They will not believe in it till they behold the painful doom,

026.202

So that it will come upon them suddenly, when they perceive not.

026.203

Then they will say: Are we to be reprieved ?

026.204

Would they (now) hasten on Our doom ?

026.205

Hast thou then seen, if We content them for (long) years,

026.206

And then cometh that which they were promised,

026.207

(How) that wherewith they were contented naught availeth them ?

026.208

And We destroyed no township but it had its warners

026.209

For reminder, for We never were oppressors.

026.210

The devils did not bring it down.

026.211

It is not meet for them, nor is it in their power,

026.212

Lo! verily they are banished from the hearing.

026.213

Therefor invoke not with Allah another god, lest thou be one of the doomed.

026.214

And warn thy tribe of near kindred,

026.215

And lower thy wing (in kindness) unto those believers who follow thee.

026.216

And if they (thy kinsfolk) disobey thee, say: Lo! I am innocent of what they do.

026.217

And put thy trust in the Mighty, the Merciful.

026.218

Who seeth thee when thou standest up (to pray)

026.219

And (seeth) thine abasement among those who fall prostrate (in worship).

026.220

Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Knower.

026.221

Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend ?

026.222

They descend on every sinful, false one.

026.223

They listen eagerly, but most of them are liars.

026.224

As for poets, the erring follow them.

026.225

Hast thou not seen how they stray in every valley,

026.226

And how they say that which they do not ?

026.227

Save those who believe and do good works, and remember Allah much, and vindicate themselves after they have been wronged. Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!
