038.000 Sad

 

038.001

Sad. By the renowned Qur'an,

038.002

Nay, but those who disbelieve are in false pride and schism.

038.003

How many a generation We destroyed before them, and they cried out when it was no longer the time for escape!

038.004

And they marvel that a warner from among themselves hath come unto them, and the disbelievers say: This is a wizard, a charlatan.

038.005

Maketh he the gods One God ? Lo! that is an astounding thing.

038.006

The chiefs among them go about, exhorting: Go and be staunch to your gods! Lo! this is a thing designed.

038.007

We have not heard of this in later religion. This is naught but an invention.

038.008

Hath the reminder been unto him (alone) among us ? Nay, but they are in doubt concerning My reminder; nay but they have not yet tasted My doom.

038.009

Or are theirs the treasures of the mercy of thy Lord, the Mighty, the Bestower ?

038.010

Or is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them theirs ? Then let them ascend by ropes!

038.011

A defeated host are (all) the factions that are there.

038.012

The folk of Noah before them denied (their messenger) and (so did the tribe of) A'ad, and Pharaoh firmly planted,

038.013

And (the tribe of) Thamud, and the folk of Lot, and the dwellers in the wood: these were the factions.

038.014

Not one of them but did deny the messengers, therefor My doom was justified,

038.015

These wait for but one Shout, there will be no second thereto.

038.016

They say: Our Lord! Hasten on for us our fate before the Day of Reckoning.

038.017

Bear with what they say, and remember Our bondman David, lord of might, Lo! he was ever turning in repentance (toward Allah).

038.018

Lo! We subdued the hills to hymn the praises (of their Lord) with him at nightfall and sunrise,

038.019

And the birds assembled; all were turning unto Him.

038.020

We made his kingdom strong and gave him wisdom and decisive speech.

038.021

And hath the story of the litigants come unto thee ? How they climbed the wall into the royal chamber;

038.022

How they burst in upon David, and he was afraid of them. They said: Be not afraid! (We are) two litigants, one of whom hath wronged the other, therefor judge aright between us; be not unjust; and show us the fair way.

038.023

Lo! this my brother hath ninety and nine ewes while I had one ewe; and he said: Entrust it to me, and he conquered me in speech.

038.024

(David) said: He hath wronged thee in demanding thine ewe in addition to his ewes, and lo! many partners oppress one another, save such as believe and do good works, and they are few. And David guessed that We had tried him, and he sought forgiveness of his Lord, and he bowed himself and fell down prostrate and repented.

038.025

So We forgave him that; and lo! he had access to Our presence and a happy journey's end.

038.026

(And it was said unto him): O David! Lo! We have set thee as a viceroy in the earth; therefor judge aright between mankind, and follow not desire that it beguile thee from the way of Allah. Lo! those who wander from the way of Allah have an awful doom, forasmuch as they forgot the Day of Reckoning.

038.027

And We created not the heaven and the earth and all that is between them in vain. That is the opinion of those who disbelieve. And woe unto those who disbelieve, from the Fire!

038.028

Shall We treat those who believe and do good works as those who spread corruption in the earth; or shall We treat the pious as the wicked ?

038.029

(This is) a Scripture that We have revealed unto thee, full of blessing, that they may ponder its revelations, and that men of understanding may reflect.

038.030

And We bestowed on David, Solomon. How excellent a slave! Lo! he was ever turning in repentance (toward Allah).

038.031

When there were shown to him at eventide lightfooted coursers

038.032

And he said: Lo! I have preferred the good things (of the world) to the remembrance of my Lord; till they were taken out of sight behind the curtain.

038.033

(Then he said): Bring them back to me, and fell to slashing (with his sword their) legs and necks.

038.034

And verily We tried Solomon, and set upon his throne a (mere) body. Then did he repent.

038.035

He said: My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me sovereignty such as shall not belong to any after me. Lo! Thou art the Bestower.

038.036

So We made the wind subservient unto him, setting fair by his command whithersoever he intended.

038.037

And the unruly, every builder and diver (made We subservient),

038.038

And others linked together in chains,

038.039

(Saying): This is Our gift, so bestow thou, or withhold, without reckoning.

038.040

And lo! he hath favour with Us, and a happy journey's end.

038.041

And make mention (O Muhammad) of Our bondman Job, when he cried unto his Lord (saying): Lo! the devil doth afflict me with distress and torment.

038.042

(And it was said unto him): Strike the ground with thy foot. This (spring) is a cool bath and a refreshing drink.

038.043

And We bestowed on him (again) his household and therewith the like thereof, a mercy from Us, and a memorial for men of understanding.

038.044

And (it was said unto him): Take in thine hand a branch and smite therewith, and break not thine oath. Lo! We found him steadfast, how excellent a slave! Lo! he was ever turning in repentance (to his Lord).

038.045

And make mention of Our bondmen, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, men of parts and vision.

038.046

Lo! We purified them with a pure thought, remembrance of the Home (of the Hereafter).

038.047

Lo! in Our sight they are verily of the elect, the excellent.

038.048

And make mention of Ishmael and Elisha and Dhu'l-Kifl. All are of the chosen.

038.049

This is a reminder. And lo! for those who ward off (evil) is a happy journey's end,

038.050

Gardens of Eden, whereof the gates are opened for them,

038.051

Wherein, reclining, they call for plenteous fruit and cool drink (that is) therein.

038.052

And with them are those of modest gaze, companions.

038.053

This it is that ye are promised for the Day of Reckoning.

038.054

Lo! this in truth is Our provision, which will never waste away.

038.055

This (is for the righteous). And lo! for the transgressors there with be an evil journey's end,

038.056

Hell, where they will burn, an evil resting-place.

038.057

Here is a boiling and an ice-cold draught, so let them taste it,

038.058

And other (torment) of the kind in pairs (the two extremes)!

038.059

Here is an army rushing blindly with you. (Those who are already in the Fire say): No word of welcome for them. Lo! they will roast at the Fire.

038.060

They say: Nay, but you (misleaders), for you there is no word of welcome. Ye prepared this for us (by your misleading). Now hapless is the plight.

038.061

They say: Our Lord! Whoever did prepare this for us, oh, give him double portion of the Fire!

038.062

And they say: What aileth us that we behold not men whom we were wont to count among the wicked ?

038.063

Did we take them (wrongly) for a laughing-stock, or have our eyes missed them ?

038.064

Lo! that is very truth: the wrangling of the dwellers in the Fire.

038.065

Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I am only a warner, and there is no God save Allah, the One, the Absolute,

038.066

Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Mighty, the Pardoning.

038.067

Say: It is tremendous tidings

038.068

Whence ye turn away!

038.069

I had no knowledge of the Highest Chiefs when they disputed;

038.070

It is revealed unto me only that I may be a plain warner.

038.071

When thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to create a mortal out of mire,

038.072

And when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, then fall down before him prostrate,

038.073

The angels fell down prostrate, every one,

038.074

Saving Iblis; he was scornful and became one of the disbelievers.

038.075

He said: O Iblis! What hindereth thee from falling prostrate before that which I have created with both My hands ? Art thou too proud or art thou of the high exalted ?

038.076

He said: I am better than him. Thou createdst me of fire, whilst him Thou didst create of clay.

038.077

He said: Go forth from hence, for lo! thou art outcast,

038.078

And lo! My curse is on thee till the Day of Judgment.

038.079

He said: My Lord! Reprieve me till the day when they are raised.

038.080

He said: Lo! thou art of those reprieved

038.081

Until the day of the time appointed.

038.082

He said: Then, by Thy might, I surely will beguile them every one,

038.083

Save Thy single-minded slaves among them.

038.084

He said: The Truth is, and the Truth I speak,

038.085

That I shall fill hell with thee and with such of them as follow thee, together.

038.086

Say (O Muhammad, unto mankind): I ask of you no fee for this, and I am no simulating.

038.087

Lo! it is naught else than a reminder for all peoples

038.088

And ye will come in time to know the truth thereof.
