Dr. Munir Munshey rendition of Surah The Rock, Stoneland, Rock City(al-Hijr)
---
15:1 Alif, Laam, Ra. These are the verses of the book, a clear lucid Qur´an.
15:2 There will come a time when the unbelievers would look back and yearn to have lived as obedient ones!
15:3 So leave them alone. Let them eat and enjoy! Let their hopes distract and perplex them. They will soon come to know!
15:4 We never destroy any locality except in accordance with a preordained scheme and time-plan.
15:5 No generation shall hasten or delay the term fixed for it!
15:6 They (the unbelievers) said, "Oh you, upon whom this reminder is revealed! You are really insane!"
15:7 "Wouldn´t you have come to us with angels, had you been truthful?"
15:8 We dispatch the angels only with the final judgment. In that case, they would have no respite!
15:9 Indeed it is We Who revealed this Qur´an, and of course We are its guardian!
15:10 Indeed, prior to you too, We sent (messengers) __ even to ancient tribes!
15:11 They mocked every messenger that ever came to them!
15:12 Thus We let this (mockery) pass through the hearts of the criminals!
15:13 They do not believe! This has been the tradition of their ancestors!
15:14 Even if We were to fling open a door in the sky, and they were actually climbing up through it,
15:15 They would say, "Our sights fail us, we are drugged. Rather, we are a nation bewitched!"
15:16 And surely, We created fortified spheres in the sky, and for the viewers We decorated it!
15:17 And We have secured it against every cursed Shaitan!
15:18 Occasionally, one of them eavesdrops, and a bright blazing meteor streaks after him.
15:19 We spread out the land and pitched mountains on it, firm and immovable. In the land, We grew all kinds of things in a perfect balance.
15:20 Out of the land, We provide livelihood for you, and other creations, too. You are not their providers!
15:21 We have all things in infinite quantities. We mete them out in measured amounts!
15:22 We circulate the winds full of moisture. We send rain down from the sky, and We have you drink that water. You could not hold that (much water) in reservoirs!
15:23 We, indeed, grant life as well as death! And We are the (ultimate) Receiver and Inheritor!
15:24 We surely know those who have gone by before you, just as We know those who have yet to come!
15:25 Your Lord will, indeed, gather them all. Verily, He is the Wisest and all-Knowing!
15:26 Surely, We have molded the humans from the dried-out stinking clay!
15:27 And We had earlier fashioned jinn from a hot sultry flame!
15:28 Your Lord said to the angels, "I am going to bring a man into existence from the dried-out stinking clay."
15:29 When I put him in order and breathe my spirit into him, you must fall prostrate before him!
15:30 The angels fell prostrate! All of them!
15:31 Except Ibleees! He refused to be among those who fell prostrate!
15:32 (Allah) said, "Oh Iblees! What is the matter? Why did you not fall prostrate?"
15:33 He said, "I am not the one to prostrate myself before a man! You have fashioned him from the dried-out stinking clay!"
15:34 (Allah) said, "Get out of here! You, surely, are damned!"
15:35 "Curse will loom over you till the Day of Judgment!"
15:36 He (Iblees) said, "Oh my Lord, grant me a moratorium till the day You raise them again!"
15:37 (Allah) said, "you have been granted the stay!"
15:38 "Till that appointed day!"
15:39 (Iblees) said, "My Lord, since You led me astray, I will definitely embellish the allure of this world for them. I will fascinate and entice them all away!"
15:40 "Except the sincere ones among Your servants!"
15:41 (Allah) said, "This Qur´an is, indeed, the path straight towards Me!"
15:42 "You shall have no hold over My servants except those who follow you and stray from the path!"
15:43 "And verily, hell is the promised place for them all!"
15:44 It has seven gates, each for a different class of sinners.
15:45 The pious shall be in paradise, amid its fountains.
15:46 (They shall be told to) enter it in peace and security!
15:47 We will rid their hearts of the residual rancor and resentment. Seated on couches and facing each other, they will live there like brothers!
15:48 There, they will encounter no hardship, and they will never be asked to leave!
15:49 (Oh Mohammed, SAW), inform My servants that I am the most Forgiving. Indeed, I am the most Kind!
15:50 The punishment I inflict is really very painful!
15:51 And inform them about Ibraheem´s guests!
15:52 They came to him and said, "Peace!" He said, "We feel afraid of you!"
15:53 They said, "Don´t be afraid! In fact, we give you the good news of a son endowed with wisdom!"
15:54 "Do you give me this news even though I have attained an old age? What kind of good news is that?"
15:55 They said, "We bring you this good news with certainty. So, do not be pessimistic!"
15:56 He (Ibraheem) said, "Only the misguided abandon hope in the mercy of their Lord!"
15:57 Said, "What is your mission, Oh angels?"
15:58 They said, "We have been dispatched towards a nation of criminals!"
15:59 "Other than the family of Loot. For, we will rescue them all!"
15:60 "With the exception of his wife who, it is decreed, will be among those who shall lag behind."
15:61 And when they came to visit the family of Loot,
15:62 He (Loot) said, "You appear to be strangers here!"
15:63 They replied, "Rather, we come to accomplish that about which they were in doubt!"
15:64 "We bring you the infallible certainty! What we say is really the truth!"
15:65 "Let your family slip away under the cover of darkness. You follow them closely and let none of you glance back! Continue on towards the directed spot!"
15:66 We conveyed to him Our decision that by dawn those people will be completely annihilated.
15:67 The people of the town came (to Loot) rejoicing!
15:68 He said, "They are my guests. Do not disgrace me!"
15:69 "Fear Allah and do not humiliate me!"
15:70 They said, "Did we not forbid you to stand up for the whole world?"
15:71 He said, "Here are my daughters. If you follow my advice!"
15:72 (I swear) upon your life, (oh Mohammed, SAW) they were intoxicated _ rampaging and out of control.
15:73 So at the crack of dawn, a blast grabbed them!
15:74 We flipped them upside down! We rained upon them stones made of baked clay!
15:75 Herein are the signs for those who scrutinize closely!
15:76 That town happens to be located along a main thoroughfare.
15:77 In this are signs for the believers!
15:78 And the people (living in the town) of ´Aika´ were evildoers.
15:79 We breathed vengeance upon them. Those (two settlements) existed on the main travel routes!
15:80 The people of (the town) of ´Hijr´ too, had rejected the messengers.
15:81 We sent the messengers with Our signs, but they ignored!
15:82 They used to carve safe and secure homes in the mountains.
15:83 A mighty blast grabbed them in the morning!
15:84 None of what they used to gain and gather could offer them any security or protection!
15:85 We created the heavens and the earth, and all else in between, with a specific purpose! The hour (of Judgment) is sure to arrive! So, forgive and forget with grace!
15:86 Surely, your Lord is the Omniscient, the ingenious Creator!
15:87 We have bestowed seven verses upon you, (the Surah Fatiha), worthy of being recited repeatedly, and the Majestic Qur´an!
15:88 Do not covet the temporary enjoyment We have bestowed upon certain groups of them. Do not grieve for them. Rather, be considerate to the believers!
15:89 Tell them, "I am truly an obvious warner for you!"
15:90 Like the one We sent to those who split into groups!
15:91 Those who separated the Qur´an into fragments!
15:92 By your Lord! We will definitely call them all to accounts,
15:93 About what they used to do!
15:94 So, proclaim as commanded, and ignore the idol worshippers!
15:95 We are more than sufficient against those who scoff.
15:96 Those assigning other gods besides Allah will soon come to know!
15:97 Of course, We know that their remarks sting your heart!
15:98 Chant the praises of your Lord! Be among those who fall prostrate!
15:99 And remain obedient to your Lord, right until your death!
