36. Ya Sin

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

1 <section begin="36:1"/>O man, <section end="36:1"/>

2 <section begin="36:2"/>By the Qur'an, full of wisdom! <section end="36:2"/>

3 <section begin="36:3"/>Surely thou art one of the messengers, <section end="36:3"/>

4 <section begin="36:4"/>On a right way. <section end="36:4"/>

5 <section begin="36:5"/>A revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful, <section end="36:5"/>

6 <section begin="36:6"/>That thou mayest warn a people whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless. <section end="36:6"/>

7 <section begin="36:7"/>The word has indeed proved true of most of them, so they believe not, <section end="36:7"/>

8 <section begin="36:8"/>Surely We have placed on their necks chains reaching up to the chins, so they have their heads raised aloft. <section end="36:8"/>

9 <section begin="36:9"/>And We have set a barrier before them and a barrier behind them, thus We have covered them, so that they see not. <section end="36:9"/>

10 <section begin="36:10"/>And it is alike to them whether thou warn them or warn them nor -- they believe not. <section end="36:10"/>

11 <section begin="36:11"/>Thou canst warn him only who follows the Reminder and fears the Beneficent in secret; so give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward. <section end="36:11"/>

12 <section begin="36:12"/>Surely We give life to the dead, and We write down that which they send before and their footprints, and We record everything in a clear writing. <section end="36:12"/>

* * *

13 <section begin="36:13"/>And set out to them a parable of the people of the town when apostles came to it. <section end="36:13"/>

14 <section begin="36:14"/>When We sent to them two, they rejected them both; then We strengthened (them) with a third, so they said: Surely we are sent to you. <section end="36:14"/>

15 <section begin="36:15"/>They said: You are only mortals like ourselves, nor has the Beneficent revealed anything -- you only lie. <section end="36:15"/>

16 <section begin="36:16"/>They said: Our Lord knows that we are surely sent to you. <section end="36:16"/>

17 <section begin="36:17"/>And our duty is only a clear deliverance (of the message). <section end="36:17"/>

18 <section begin="36:18"/>They said: Surely we augur evil from you. If you desist not, we will surely stone you, and a painful chastisement from us will certainly afflict you. <section end="36:18"/>

19 <section begin="36:19"/>They said: Your evil fortune is with you. What! If you are reminded! Nay, you are an extravagant people. <section end="36:19"/>

20 <section begin="36:20"/>And from the remote part of the city there came a man running. He said: O my people, follow the apostles. <section end="36:20"/>

21 <section begin="36:21"/>Follow him who asks of you no reward, and they are on the right course. <section end="36:21"/>

* * *

22 <section begin="36:22"/>And what reason have I that I should not serve Him Who created me and to Whom you will be brought back. <section end="36:22"/>

23 <section begin="36:23"/>Shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession, if the Beneficent should desire to afflict me with harm, will avail me naught, not can they deliver me? <section end="36:23"/>

24 <section begin="36:24"/>Then I shall surely be in clear error. <section end="36:24"/>

25 <section begin="36:25"/>Surely I believe in your Lord, so hear me. <section end="36:25"/>

26 <section begin="36:26"/>It was said: Enter the Garden. He said: Would that my people knew, <section end="36:26"/>

27 <section begin="36:27"/>How my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honoured ones! <section end="36:27"/>

28 <section begin="36:28"/>And We sent not down upon his people after him any host from heaven, nor do We ever send. <section end="36:28"/>

29 <section begin="36:29"/>It was naught but a single cry, and lo! they were still. <section end="36:29"/>

30 <section begin="36:30"/>Alas for the servants! Never does a messenger come to them but they mock him. <section end="36:30"/>

31 <section begin="36:31"/>See they not how many generations We destroyed before them, that they return not to them? <section end="36:31"/>

32 <section begin="36:32"/>And all -- surely all -- will be brought before Us. <section end="36:32"/>

* * *

33 <section begin="36:33"/>And a sign to them is the dead earth: We give life to it and bring forth from it grain so they eat of it. <section end="36:33"/>

34 <section begin="36:34"/>And We make therein gardens of date-palms and grapes and We make springs to flow forth therein, <section end="36:34"/>

35 <section begin="36:35"/>That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hands made it not. Will they not then give thanks? <section end="36:35"/>

36 <section begin="36:36"/>Glory be to Him Who created pairs of all things, of what the earth grows, and of their kind and of what they know not! <section end="36:36"/>

37 <section begin="36:37"/>And a sign to them is the night: We draw forth from it the day, then lo! they are in darkness; <section end="36:37"/>

38 <section begin="36:38"/>And the sun moves on to its destination. That is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knower. <section end="36:38"/>

39 <section begin="36:39"/>And the moon, We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old dry palm-branch. <section end="36:39"/>

40 <section begin="36:40"/>Neither is it for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day. And all float on in an orbit. <section end="36:40"/>

41 <section begin="36:41"/>And a sign to them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship, <section end="36:41"/>

42 <section begin="36:42"/>And We have created for them the like thereof, whereon they ride. <section end="36:42"/>

43 <section begin="36:43"/>And if We please, We may drown them, then there is no succour for them, nor can they be rescued -- <section end="36:43"/>

44 <section begin="36:44"/>But by mercy from Us and for enjoyment till a time. <section end="36:44"/>

45 <section begin="36:45"/>And when it is said to them Guard against that which is before you and that which is behind you, that mercy may be shown to you. <section end="36:45"/>

46 <section begin="36:46"/>And there comes to them no message of the messages of their Lord but they turn away from it. <section end="36:46"/>

47 <section begin="36:47"/>And when it is said to them: Spend out of that which Allah has given you, those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Shall we feed him whom, if Allah please, He could feed? You are in naught but clear error. <section end="36:47"/>

48 <section begin="36:48"/>And they say: When will this promise come to pass, if you are truthful? <section end="36:48"/>

49 <section begin="36:49"/>They await but a single cry, which will overtake them while they contend. <section end="36:49"/>

50 <section begin="36:50"/>So they will not be able to make a bequest, nor will they return to their families. <section end="36:50"/>

* * *

51 <section begin="36:51"/>And the trumpet is blown, when lo! from their graves they will hasten on to their Lord. <section end="36:51"/>

52 <section begin="36:52"/>They will say: O woe to us Who has raised us up from our sleeping-place? This is what the Beneficent promised and the messengers told the truth. <section end="36:52"/>

53 <section begin="36:53"/>It is but a single cry, when lo! they are all brought before Us. <section end="36:53"/>

54 <section begin="36:54"/>So this day no soul is wronged in aught and you are not rewarded aught but for what you did. <section end="36:54"/>

55 <section begin="36:55"/>Surely the owners of the Garden are on that day in a happy occupation. <section end="36:55"/>

56 <section begin="36:56"/>They and their wives are in shades, reclining on raised couches. <section end="36:56"/>

57 <section begin="36:57"/>They have fruits therein, and they have whatever they desire. <section end="36:57"/>

58 <section begin="36:58"/>Peace! A word from a Merciful Lord. <section end="36:58"/>

59 <section begin="36:59"/>And withdraw to-day, O guilty ones! <section end="36:59"/>

60 <section begin="36:60"/>Did I not charge you, O children of Adam, that you serve not the devil? Surely he is your open enemy. <section end="36:60"/>

61 <section begin="36:61"/>And that you serve Me. This is the right way. <section end="36:61"/>

62 <section begin="36:62"/>And certainly he led astray numerous people from among you. Could you not then understand? <section end="36:62"/>

63 <section begin="36:63"/>This is the hell which you were promised. <section end="36:63"/>

64 <section begin="36:64"/>Enter it this day because you disbelieved. <section end="36:64"/>

65 <section begin="36:65"/>That day We shall seal their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness as to what they earned. <section end="36:65"/>

66 <section begin="36:66"/>And if We pleased, We would put out their eyes, then they would strive to get first to the way, but how should they see? <section end="36:66"/>

67 <section begin="36:67"/>And if We pleased, We would transform them in their place, then they would not be able to go on, or turn back. <section end="36:67"/>

* * *

68 <section begin="36:68"/>And whomsoever We cause to live long, We reduce to an abject state in creation. Do they not understand? <section end="36:68"/>

69 <section begin="36:69"/>And We have not taught him poetry, nor is it meet for him. This is naught but a Reminder and a plain Qur'an, <section end="36:69"/>

70 <section begin="36:70"/>To warn him who would have life, and (that) the word may prove true against the disbelievers. <section end="36:70"/>

71 <section begin="36:71"/>See they not that We have created cattle for them, out of what Our hands have wrought, so they are their masters? <section end="36:71"/>

72 <section begin="36:72"/>And We have subjected them to them, so some of them they ride, and some they eat. <section end="36:72"/>

73 <section begin="36:73"/>And therein they have advantages and drinks. Will they not then give thanks? <section end="36:73"/>

74 <section begin="36:74"/>And they take gods besides Allah that they may be helped. <section end="36:74"/>

75 <section begin="36:75"/>They are not able to help them, and they are a host brought up before them. <section end="36:75"/>

76 <section begin="36:76"/>So let not their speech grieve thee. Surely We know what they do in secret and what they do openly. <section end="36:76"/>

77 <section begin="36:77"/>Does not man see that We have created him from the small life germ? Then lo! he is an open disputant. <section end="36:77"/>

78 <section begin="36:78"/>And he strikes our a likeness for Us and forgets his own creation. Says he: Who will give life to the bones, when they are rotten? <section end="36:78"/>

79 <section begin="36:79"/>Say He will give life to them, Who brought them into existence at first, and He is Knower of all creation, <section end="36:79"/>

80 <section begin="36:80"/>Who produced fire for you out of the green tree, so that with it you kindle. <section end="36:80"/>

81 <section begin="36:81"/>Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? Yea! And He is the Creator (of all), the Knower. <section end="36:81"/>

82 <section begin="36:82"/>His command, when He intends anything, is only to say to it, Be, and it is. <section end="36:82"/>

83 <section begin="36:83"/>So glory be to Him in Whose hand is the kingdom of all things and to Him you will be returned. <section end="36:83"/>
