as rendered by Muhammad Sarwar

Muhammad Sarwar rendition of Surah The Rock, Stoneland, Rock City(al-Hijr)
---
15:1 Alif. Lam. Ra. These are the verses of the Book and the glorious Quran.
15:2 How strongly the unbelievers will wish that they had been Muslims.
15:3 (Muhammad), leave them alone to eat and enjoy themselves and let their desires deceive them; they will soon know (the Truth).
15:4 We never destroyed any town without pre-ordaining the fate of its people.
15:5 Every nation can only live for the time appointed for it.
15:6 (The unbelievers have said), "You to whom the Quran has been revealed are insane.
15:7 Why do you not bring down the angels if what you say is true".
15:8 We do not send down angels except for a genuine purpose, at which time none will be given any further respite.
15:9 We Ourselves have revealed the Quran and We are its Protectors.
15:10 We sent Messengers to the ancient people who lived before you.
15:11 No Messenger went to them whom they did not mock.
15:12 This is how We cause the hearts of the guilty ones to behave.
15:13 They do not believe in the Truth and they exactly follow the tradition of the ancient (unbelievers)
15:14 Had We opened a door for them in the sky through which they could easily pass,
15:15 they would have said, "Our eyes are bewildered and we have been affected by magic."
15:16 We have made constellations in the sky and decorated them for the onlookers.
15:17 We have protected them from every condemned devil,
15:18 except for those who stealthily try to listen to the heavens, but who are chased away by a bright flame.
15:19 We have spread out the earth, fixed mountains thereupon and caused everything to grow to its proper weight
15:20 to provide you and those for whose sustenance you are not responsible, with the necessities of life.
15:21 With Us is the source of everything and We do not send it down except in a known quantity.
15:22 We send impregnating winds and send down water from the sky for you to drink and you have no (control over its) storage.
15:23 It is We who give life and cause things to die and We are the sole Heirs.
15:24 We know the people who lived before you and those who will come into existence after you.
15:25 Your Lord will resurrect them all; He is All-wise and All-knowing.
15:26 We have created the human being out of pure mud-moulded clay
15:27 and the jinn before (the human being) of smokeless fire.
15:28 When your Lord said to the angels, "I will create the human being out of pure mud-moulded clay.
15:29 When it is properly shaped and I have blown My Spirit into it, you should then bow down in prostration".
15:30 All the angels prostrated before Adam
15:31 except Iblis who refused to join with the others in prostration.
15:32 God asked Iblis, "What made you not join the others in prostration?"
15:33 Iblis replied, "I did not want to prostrate before a human being whom You have created out of mud-moulded clay".
15:34 God told him, "Get out of the garden; you are rejected
15:35 and will be subjected to condemnation until the Day of Judgment."
15:36 Iblis prayed, "Lord, grant me respite until the Day of Judgment".
15:37 The Lord said, "Your request is granted
15:38 for an appointed time."
15:39 Iblis said, "Lord, because you have caused me to go astray, I shall make earthly things attractive to (people) and mislead all of them
15:40 except Your sincere servants".
15:41 God said, "The path which leads to Me is a straight
15:42 and you have no authority over My servants except the erring ones who follow you.
15:43 Hell is the promised place for them all.
15:44 It has seven gates and each gate is assigned for a certain group of people.
15:45 The pious will live in gardens with streams
15:46 and they will be told to enter there in peace and safety.
15:47 We shall remove all hatred from their breasts and make them as brothers reclining on thrones facing one another.
15:48 No fatigue will touch them nor will they be expelled therefrom."
15:49 (Muhammad), tell My servants that I am All-forgiving and All-merciful
15:50 and that My punishment is a painful one.
15:51 Tell them about the guests of Abraham
15:52 who came to him saying, "Peace be with you." Abraham said, "We are afraid of you".
15:53 They replied, "Do not be afraid. We have brought you the glad news of (the birth) of a learned son".
15:54 Abraham asked, "Are you giving me the glad news of a son in my old age? What reason can you give for such glad news?"
15:55 They said, "We have given you the glad news for a true reason so do not despair".
15:56 He said, "No one despairs of the mercy of his Lord except those who are in error.
15:57 Messengers, what is your task?"
15:58 They said, "We are sent to a sinful people.
15:59 Only the family of Lot will all be saved,
15:60 except his wife who is doomed to be left behind."
15:61 When the Messengers came to the family of Lot,
15:62 he said, "You seem to be strangers".
15:63 They replied, "We have come to you about the matter which the (unbelievers) have rejected.
15:64 We have come to you for a genuine purpose and We are true in what we say.
15:65 Leave the town with your family sometime during the night. Walk behind them and let no one turn around. Proceed as you are commanded."
15:66 We informed him that the unbelievers would be utterly destroyed.
15:67 The people of the town rejoicingly
15:68 rushed towards the house of Lot. Lot said to them, "These are my guests. Do not disgrace me.
15:69 Have fear of God and do not humiliate me".
15:70 They replied, "Did we not forbid you to bring anyone to your house?"
15:71 Lot said, "These are my daughters if you want them."
15:72 By your life! In their drunkenness they were truly blind.
15:73 An explosion struck them at sunrise.
15:74 We turned the town upside-down and showered on them lumps of baked clay.
15:75 In this there is evidence (of the Truth) for the prudent ones.
15:76 That town lies on a road which still exists.
15:77 In this there is evidence (of the Truth) for the believers.
15:78 Since the People of the Forest were unjust,
15:79 We afflicted them with punishment. Both people had clear (divine) authority among them.
15:80 People of Hijr rejected the Messengers.
15:81 We showed them miracles but they ignored them.
15:82 They would carve secure houses out of the mountains.
15:83 An explosion struck them in the morning.
15:84 Out of what they had gained, nothing proved to be of any benefit to them.
15:85 We have created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, for a genuine purpose. The Day of Judgment will certainly approach, so (Muhammad) forgive them graciously.
15:86 Your Lord is certainly the All-knowing Creator.
15:87 (Muhammad), We have given you the seven most repeated (verses) and the great Quran.
15:88 Do not yearn for other people's property and wives and do not grieve (that they do not believe). Be kind to the believers.
15:89 Say, "Indeed, I am simply one who warns."
15:90 (We have given you the Quran) as We had given (the Bible) to those who divided themselves into groups
15:91 and also divided the Quran believing in some parts and rejecting others.
15:92 By the Lord, We will hold them all responsible
15:93 for what they have done
15:94 Preach what you have been commanded to and stay away from the pagans.
15:95 We shall help you against those who mock you
15:96 and believe other things to be equal to God. They will soon know the truth.
15:97 We certainly know that you feel sad about what they say against you.
15:98 Glorify and praise your Lord and be with those who prostrate themselves before God.
15:99 Worship your Lord until you achieve the ultimate certainty.
