In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Ta Sin! These are the verses of the Quran and the Book that makes (things) clear
[27.2] A guidance and good news for the believers,
keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and of the hereafter, they are sure.
[27.4] 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.
These are they who shall have an evil punishment, and in the hereafter they shall
be the greatest losers.
[27.6] And most surely you are made to receive
the Quran from the Wise, the Knowing God.
[27.7] 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 yourselves.
[27.8] 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
[27.9] O Musa! surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise;
[27.10] 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;
he who has been unjust, then he does good instead after evil, for surely I am
the Forgiving, the Merciful:
[27.12] 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 people.
when Our clear signs came to them, they said: This is clear enchantment.
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.
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.
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.
[27.17] And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were gathered
to him, and they were formed into groups.
[27.18] 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.
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.
[27.20] And he reviewed the birds,
then said: How is it I see not the hoopoe or is it that he is of the absentees?
[27.21] 1 will most certainly punish him with a severe punishment, or kill
him, or he shall bring to me a clear plea.
[27.22] 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.
[27.23] Surely I found a woman
ruling over them, and she has been given abundance and she has a mighty throne:
[27.24] 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 aright
[27.25] 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:
[27.26] Allah, there is no
god but He: He is the Lord of mighty power.
[27.27] He said: We will
see whether you have told the truth or whether you are of the liars:
Take this my letter and hand it over to them, then turn away from them and see
what (answer) they return.
[27.29] She said: O chief! surely an honorable
letter has been delivered to me
[27.30] Surely it is from Sulaiman,
and surely it is in the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful;
Saying: exalt not yourselves against me and come to me in submission.
She said: O chiefs! give me advice respecting my affair: I never decide an affair
until you are in my presence.
[27.33] They said: We are possessors
of strength and possessors of mighty prowess, and the command is yours, therefore
see what you will command.
[27.34] 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;
[27.35] And surely I am going to send a present to
them, and shall wait to see what (answer) do the messengers bring back.
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 your present;
[27.37] 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
[27.38] He said: O chiefs! which of you can bring to me
her throne before they come to me in submission?
[27.39] 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.
[27.40] 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 Self-sufficient, Honored.
[27.41] He said: Alter
her throne for her, we will see whether she follows the right way or is of those
who do not go aright.
[27.42] 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.
[27.43] And what she worshipped
besides Allah prevented her, surely she was of an unbelieving people.
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 worlds.
certainly We sent to Samood their brother Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo!
they became two sects quarrelling with each other.
[27.46] 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?
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 tried.
[27.48] And there were in the city nine persons
who made mischief in the land and did not act aright.
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.
And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan while they perceived not.
See, then, how was the end of their plan that We destroyed them and their people,
all (of them).
[27.52] So those are their houses fallen down because
they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a people who know.
[27.53] .And We delivered those who believed and who guarded (against evil).
[27.54] And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people: What! do you commit
indecency while you see?
[27.55] What! do you indeed approach men lustfully
rather than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly.
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!
But We delivered him and his followers except his wife; We ordained her to be
of those who remained behind.
[27.58] And We rained on them a rain,
and evil was the rain of those who had been warned.
[27.59] Say: Praise
be to Allah and peace on His servants whom He has chosen: is Allah better, or
what they associate (with Him)?
[27.60] 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.
[27.61] 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!
[27.62] 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
[27.63] 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).
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 truthful.
[27.65] Say: No one in the heavens and the earth
knows the unseen but Allah; and they do not know when they shall be raised.
[27.66] Nay, their knowledge respecting the hereafter is slight and hasty;
nay, they are in doubt about it; nay, they are quite blind to
And those who disbelieve say: What! when we have become dust and our fathers (too),
shall we certainly be brought forth?
[27.68] We have certainly been
promised this, we and our fathers before; these are naught but stories of the
[27.69] Say: Travel in the earth, then see how was the end
of the guilty.
[27.70] And grieve not for them and be not distressed
because of what they plan.
[27.71] And they say: When will this threat
come to pass, if you are truthful?
[27.72] Say: Maybe there may have
drawn near to you somewhat of that which you seek to hasten on.
And surely your Lord is the Lord of grace to men, but most of them are not grateful.
[27.74] And most surely your Lord knows what their breasts conceal and
what they manifest.
[27.75] And there is nothing concealed in the heaven
and the earth but it is in a clear book.
[27.76] Surely this Quran
declares to the children of Israel most of what they differ in.
And most surely it is a guidance and a mercy for the believers.
Surely your Lord will judge between them by his judgment, and He is the Mighty,
[27.79] Therefore rely on Allah; surely you are on the
[27.80] 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.
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.
[27.82] 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 communications.
[27.83] 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.
[27.84] 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?
[27.85] And the word shall come
to pass against them because they were unjust, so they shall not speak.
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
[27.87] 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.
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.
[27.89] Whoever brings
good, he shall have better than it; and they shall be secure from terror on the
[27.90] 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?
[27.91] 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;
[27.92] 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.
[27.93] 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.
