Book 36


Yasin

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

[36.1]

Ya Seen.

[36.2]
I swear by the Quran full of wisdom

[36.3]
Most surely you are one of the apostles

[36.4]

On a right way.

[36.5]

A revelation of the Mighty,
the Merciful.

[36.6]

That you may warn a people whose fathers were not warned,
so they are heedless.

[36.7]

Certainly the word has proved true of most of them,
so they do not believe.

[36.8]

Surely We have placed chains on their necks,
and these reach up to their chins,
so they have their heads raised aloft.

[36.9]

And We have made before them a barrier and a barrier behind them,
then We have covered them over so that they do not see.

[36.10]

And it is alike to them whether you warn them or warn them not:
they do not believe.

[36.11]

You can only warn him who follows the reminder and fears the Beneficent God in secret;
so announce to him forgiveness and an honorable reward.

[36.12]

Surely We give life to the dead,
and We write down what they have sent before and their footprints,
and We have recorded everything in a clear writing.

[36.13]

And set out to them an example of the people of the town,
when the messengers came to it.

[36.14]

When We sent to them two,
they rejected both of them,
then We strengthened (them) with a third,
so they said:
Surely we are messengers to you.

[36.15]

They said:
You are naught but mortals like ourselves,
nor has the Beneficent God revealed anything;
you only lie.

[36.16]

They said:
Our Lord knows that we are most surely messengers to you.

[36.17]

And nothing devolves on us but a clear deliverance (of the message).

[36.18]

They said:
Surely we augur evil from you;
if you do not desist,
we will certainly stone you,
and there shall certainly afflict vou a painful chastisement from us.

[36.19]

They said:
Your evil fortune is with you;
what!
if you are reminded!
Nay,
you are an extravagant people.

[36.20]

And from the remote part of the city there came a man running,
he said:
O my people!
follow the messengers;

[36.21]

Follow him who does not ask you for reward,
and they are the followers of the right course;

[36.22]

And what reason have I that I should not serve Him Who brought me into existence?
And to Him you shall be brought back;

[36.23]

What!
shall I take besides Him gods whose intercession,
If the Beneficent God should desire to afflict me with a harm,
shall not avail me aught,
nor shall they be able to deliver me?

[36.24]

In that case I shall most surely be in clear error:

[36.25]

Surely I believe in your Lord,
therefore hear me.

[36.26]

It was said:
Enter the garden.
He said: O would that my people had known

[36.27]

Of that on account of which my Lord has forgiven me and made me of the honored ones!

[36.28]

And We did not send down upon his people after him any hosts from heaven,
nor do We ever send down.

[36.29]

It was naught but a single cry,
and lo!
they were still.

[36.30]

Alas for the servants!
there comes not to them an apostle but they mock at him.

[36.31]

Do they not consider how many of the generations have We destroyed before them,
because they do not turn to them?

[36.32]

And all of them shall surely be brought before Us.

[36.33]

And a sign to them is the dead earth:
We give life to it and bring forth from it grain SQ they eat of it.

[36.34]

And We make therein gardens of palms and grapevines and We make springs to flow forth in it,

[36.35]

That they may eat of the fruit thereof,
and their hands did not make it;
will they not then be grateful?

[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 do not know.

[36.37]

And a sign to them is the night:
We draw forth from it the day,
then lo!
they are in the dark;

[36.38]

And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it;
that is the ordinance of the Mighty,
the Knowing.

[36.39]

And (as for) the moon,
We have ordained for it stages till it becomes again as an old dry palm branch.

[36.40]

Neither is it allowable to the sun that it should overtake the moon,
nor can the night outstrip the day;
and all float on in a sphere.

[36.41]

And a sign to them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship.

[36.42]

And We have created for them the like of it,
what they will ride on.

[36.43]

And if We please,
We can drown them,
then there shall be no succorer for them, nor shall they be rescued

[36.44]

But (by) mercy from Us and for enjoyment till a time.

[36.45]

And when it is said to them:
Guard against what is before you and what is behind you,
that mercy may be had on you.

[36.46]

And there comes not to them a communication of the communications of their Lord but they turn aside from it.

[36.47]

And when it is said to them:
Spend out of what 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.

[36.48]

And they say:
When will this threat come to pass,
if you are truthful?

[36.49]

They wait not for aught but a single cry which will overtake them while they yet contend with one another.

[36.50]

So they shall not be able to make a bequest,
nor shall they return to their families.

[36.51]

And the trumpet shall be blown,
when lo !
from their graves they shall hasten on to their Lord.

[36.52]

They shall say:
O woe to us!
who has raised us up from our sleeping-place?
This is what the Beneficent God promised and the apostles told the truth.

[36.53]

There would be naught but a single cry,
when lo !
they shall all be brought before Us;

[36.54]

So this day no soul shall be dealt with unjustly in the least;
and you shall not be rewarded aught but that which you did.

[36.55]

Surely the dwellers of the garden shall on that day be in an occupation quite happy.

[36.56]

They and their wives shall be in shades,
reclining on raised couches.

[36.57]

They shall have fruits therein,
and they shall have whatever they desire.

[36.58]

Peace:
a word from a Merciful Lord.

[36.59]

And get aside today,
O guilty ones!

[36.60]

Did I not charge you,
O children of Adam !
that you should not serve the Shaitan?
Surely he is your open enemy,

[36.61]

And that you should serve Me;
this is the right way.

[36.62]

And certainly he led astray numerous people from among you.
What!
could you not then understand?

[36.63]

This is the hell with which you were threatened.

[36.64]

Enter into it this day because you disbelieved.

[36.65]

On that day We will set a seal upon their mouths,
and their hands shall speak to Us,
and their feet shall bear witness of what they earned.

[36.66]

And if We please We would certainly put out their eyes,
then they would run about groping for the way,
but how should they see?

[36.67]

And if We please We would surely transform them in their place,
then they would not be able to go on,
nor will they return.

[36.68]

And whomsoever We cause to live long,
We reduce (him) to an abject state in constitution;
do they not then understand?

[36.69]

And We have not taught him poetry,
nor is it meet for him;
it is nothing but a reminder and a plain Quran,

[36.70]

That it may warn him who would have life,
and (that) the word may prove true against the unbelievers.

[36.71]

Do they not see that We have created cattle for them,
out of what Our hands have wrought,
so they are their masters?

[36.72]

And We have subjected them to them,
so some of them they have to ride upon,
and some of them they eat.

[36.73]

And therein they have advantages and drinks;
will they not then be grateful?

[36.74]

And they have taken gods besides Allah that they may be helped.

[36.75]

(But) they shall not be able to assist them,
and they shall be a host brought up before them.

[36.76]

Therefore let not their speech grieve you;
surely We know what they do in secret and what they do openly.

[36.77]

Does not man see that We have created him from the small seed?
Then lo!
he is an open disputant.

[36.78]

And he strikes out a likeness for Us and forgets his own creation.
Says he:
Who will give life to the bones when they are rotten?

[36.79]

Say:
He will give life to them Who brought them into existence at first, and He is cognizant of all creation

[36.80]

He Who has made for you the fire (to burn) from the green tree,
so that with it you kindle (fire).

[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.

[36.82]

His command,
when He intends anything,
is only to say to it:
Be,
so it is.

[36.83]

Therefore glory be to Him in Whose hand is the kingdom of all things,
and to Him you shall be brought back.
