1. Ta Sin! These are the verses of the Quran and the Book
that makes (things) clear
2. A guidance and good news for the believers,
3. Who keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and of the
hereafter, they are sure.
4. As to those who do not believe in the hereafter, We have
surely made their deeds fair-seeming to them, but they
blindly wander on.
S. These are they who shall have an evil punishment, and in
the hereafter they shall be the greatest losers.
6. And most surely you are made to receive the Quran from
the Wise, the Knowing God.
7. When Musa said to his family: Surely I see fire; I will
bring to you from it some news, or I will bring to you
therefrom a burning firebrand so that you may warm
8. So when he came to it a voice was uttered saying: Blessed
is Whoever is in the fire and whatever is about it; and
glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds;
9. O Musa! surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise;
10. And cast down your staff. So when he saw it in motion as
if it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and did not
return: O Musa! fear not; surely the apostles shall not fear
in My presence;
11. Neither he who has been unjust, then he does good
instead after evil, for surely I am the Forgiving, the
12. And enter your hand into the opening of your bosom, it
shall come forth white without evil; among nine signs to
Firon and his people, surely they are a transgressing
13. So when Our clear signs came to them, they said: This is
14. And they denied them unjustly and proudly while their
soul had been convinced of them; consider, then how was the
end of the mischief-makers.
15. And certainly We gave knowledge to Dawood and Sulaiman,
and they both said: Praise be to Allah, Who has made us to
excel many of His believing servants.
16. And Sulaiman was Dawood's heir, and he said: O men! we
have been taught the language of birds, and we have been
given all things; most surely this is manifest grace.
17. And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were
gathered to him, and they were formed into groups.
18. Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a
Namlite said: O Naml! enter your houses, (that) Sulaiman and
his hosts may not crush you while they do not know.
19. So he smiled, wondering at her word, and said: My Lord!
grant me that I should be grateful for Thy favor which Thou
hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I should do
good such as Thou art pleased with, and make me enter, by
Thy mercy, into Thy servants, the good ones.
20. And he reviewed the birds, then said: How is it I see
not the hoopoe or is it that he is of the absentees?
21. 1 will most certainly punish him with a severe
punishment, or kill him, or he shall bring to me a clear
22. And he tarried not long, then said: I comprehend that
which you do not comprehend and I have brought to you a sure
information from Sheba.
23. Surely I found a woman ruling over them, and she has
been given abundance and she has a mighty throne:
24. 1 found her and her people adoring the sun instead of
Allah, and the Shaitan has made their deeds fair-seeming to
them and thus turned them from the way, so they do not go
25. That they do not make obeisance to Allah, Who brings
forth what is hidden in the heavens and the earth and knows
what you hide and what you make manifest:
26. Allah, there is no god but He: He is the Lord of mighty
27. He said: We will see whether you have told the truth or
whether you are of the liars:
28. Take this my letter and hand it over to them, then turn
away from them and see what (answer) they return.
29. She said: O chief! surely an honorable letter has been
delivered to me
30. Surely it is from Sulaiman, and surely it is in the name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful;
31. Saying: exalt not yourselves against me and come to me
32. She said: O chiefs! give me advice respecting my affair:
I never decide an affair until you are in my presence.
33. They said: We are possessors of strength and possessors
of mighty prowess, and the command is yours, therefore see
what you will command.
34. She said: Surely the kings, when they enter a town, ruin
it and make the noblest of its people to be low, and thus
they (always) do;
35. And surely I am going to send a present to them, and
shall wait to see what (answer) do the messengers bring
36. So when he came to Sulaiman, he said: What! will you
help me with wealth? But what Allah has given me is better
than what He has given you. Nay, you are exultant because of
37. Go back to them, so we will most certainly come to them
with hosts which they shall have no power to oppose, and we
will most certainly expel them therefrom in abasement, and
they shall be in a state of ignominy.
38. He said: O chiefs! which of you can bring to me her
throne before they come to me in submission?
39. One audacious among the jinn said: I will bring it to
you before you rise up from your place; and most surely I am
strong (and) trusty for it.
40. One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I will bring
it to you in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he saw it
settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my Lord
that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful; and
whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul,
and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is
41. He said: Alter her throne for her, we will see whether
she follows the right way or is of those who do not go
42. So when she came, it was said: Is your throne like this?
She said: It is as it were the same, and we were given the
knowledge before it, and we were submissive.
43. And what she worshipped besides Allah prevented her,
surely she was of an unbelieving people.
44. It was said to her: Enter the palace; but when she saw
it she deemed it to be a great expanse of water, and bared
her legs. He said: Surely it is a palace made smooth with
glass. She said: My Lord! surely I have been unjust to
myself, and I submit with Sulaiman to Allah, the Lord of the
45. And certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih,
saying: Serve Allah; and lo! they became two sects
quarrelling with each other.
46. He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the
evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of
Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully?
47. They said: We have met with ill luck on account of you
and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your
evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are
48. And there were in the city nine persons who made
mischief in the land and did not act aright.
49. They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we will
certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by
night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the
destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful.
50. And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan while
they perceived not.
51. See, then, how was the end of their plan that We
destroyed them and their people, all (of them).
52. So those are their houses fallen down because they were
unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who
53. .And We delivered those who believed and who guarded
54. And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do
you commit indecency while you see?
SS. What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather than
women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly.
56. But the answer of his people was no other except that
they ~s said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town;
surely they are a people who would keep pure!
57. But We delivered him and his followers except his wife;
We ordained her to be of those who remained behind.
58. And We rained on them a rain, and evil was the rain of
those who had been warned.
59. Say: Praise be to Allah and peace on His servants whom
He has chosen: is Allah better, or what they associate (with
60. Nay, He Who created the heavens and the earth, and sent
down for you water from the cloud; then We cause to grow
thereby beautiful gardens; it is not possible for you that
you should make the trees thereof to grow. Is there a god
with Allah? Nay! they are people who deviate.
61. Or, Who made the earth a restingplace, and made in it
rivers, and raised on it mountains and placed between the
two seas a barrier. Is there a god with Allah? Nay! most of
them do not know!
62. Or, Who answers the distressed one when he calls upon
Him and removes the evil, and He will make you successors in
the earth. Is there a god with Allah? Little is it that you
63. Or, Who guides you in utter darkness of the land and the
sea, and Who sends the winds as good news before His mercy.
Is there a god with Allah? Exalted by Allah above what they
associate (with Him).
64. Or, Who originates the creation, then reproduces it and
Who gives you sustenance from the heaven and the earth. Is
there a god With Allah? Say: Bring your proof if you are
65. Say: No one in the heavens and the earth knows the
unseen but Allah; and they do not know when they shall be
66. Nay, their knowledge respecting the hereafter is slight
and hasty; nay, they are in doubt about it; nay, they are
quite blind to
67. And those who disbelieve say: What! when we have become
dust and our fathers (too), shall we certainly be brought
68. We have certainly been promised this, we and our fathers
before; these are naught but stories of the ancients
69. Say: Travel in the earth, then see how was the end of
70. And grieve not for them and be not distressed because of
what they plan.
71. And they say: When will this threat come to pass, if you
72. Say: Maybe there may have drawn near to you somewhat of
that which you seek to hasten on.
73. And surely your Lord is the Lord of grace to men, but
most of them are not grateful.
74. And most surely your Lord knows what their breasts
conceal and what they manifest.
75. And there is nothing concealed in the heaven and the
earth but it is in a clear book.
76. Surely this Quran declares to the children of Israel
most of what they differ in.
77. And most surely it is a guidance and a mercy for the
78. Surely your Lord will judge between them by his
judgment, and He is the Mighty, the knowing.
79. Therefore rely on Allah; surely you are on the clear
80. Surely you do not make the dead to hear, and you do not
make the deaf to hear the call when they go back retreating.
81. Nor can you be a guide to the blind out of their error;
you cannot make to bear (any one) except those who believe
in Our communications, so they submit.
82. And when the word shall come to pass against them, We
shall bring forth for them a creature from the earth that
shall i wound them, because people did not believe in Our
83. And on the day when We will gather from every nation a
party from among those who rejected Our communications,
then they shall be formed into groups.
84. Until when they come, He will say: Did you reject My
communications while you had no comprehensive knowledge of
them? Or what was it that you did?
85. And the word shall come to pass against them because
they were unjust, so they shall not speak.
86. Do they not consider that We have made the night that.
they may rest therein, and the day to give light? Most
surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.
87. And on the day when the trumpet shall be blown, then
those who are in the heavens and those who are in the earth
shall be terrified except such as Allah please, and all
shall come to him abased.
88. And you see the mountains, you think them to be solid,
and they shall pass away as the passing away of the
cloud-- the handiwork of Allah Who has made every thing
thoroughly; surely He is Aware of what you do.
89. Whoever brings good, he shall have better than it; and
they shall be secure from terror on the day.
90. And whoever brings evil, these shall be thrown down on
their faces into the fire; shall you be rewarded (for) aught
except what you did?
91. I am commanded only that I should serve the Lord of this
city, Who has made it sacred, and His are all things; and I
am commanded that I should be of these who submit;
92. And that I should recite the Quran. Therefore whoever
goes aright, he goes aright for his own soul, and whoever
goes ' astray, then say: I am only one of the warners.
93. And say: Praise be to Allah, He will show you His signs
so that you shall recognize them; nor is your Lord heedless
of what you do.
