36: Ya-Sin (يس)

Audio Surah: YA-SIN

1:  Ya Seen.

2:  I swear by the Quran full of wisdom

3:  Most surely you are one of the messengers

4:  On a right way.

5:  A revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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;

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

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

25:  Surely I believe in your Lord, therefore hear me.

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

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

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

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

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

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

32:  And all of them shall surely be brought before Us.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

58:  Peace: a word from a Merciful Lord.

59:  And get aside today, O guilty ones!

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

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

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

63:  This is the hell with which you were threatened.

64:  Enter into it this day because you disbelieved.

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.

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?

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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.

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

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