Quran English Translation Sura 52-72 P4
[68:22] “Let us harvest the crop.”
[68:23] On their way, they confided to each other.
[68:24] That from then on, none of them would be poor.
[68:25] They were so absolutely sure of their harvest.
[68:26] But when they saw it, they said, “We were so wrong!
[68:27] “Now, we have nothing!”
[68:28] The righteous among them said, “If only you had glorified (God)!”
[68:29] They said, “Glory be to our Lord. We have transgressed.”
[68:30] They started to blame each other.
[68:31] They said, “Woe to us. We sinned.
[68:32] “May our Lord grant us a better one. We repent to our Lord.”
[68:33] Such was the requital. But the retribution of the Hereafter is far worse, if they only knew.
[68:34] The righteous have deserved, at their Lord, gardens of bliss.
[68:35] Shall we treat the Submitters like the criminals?
[68:36] What is wrong with your logic?
[68:37] Do you have another book to uphold?
[68:38] In it, do you find anything you want?
[68:39] Or, have you received solemn assurances from us that grant you whatever you wish on the Day of Resurrection?
[68:40] Ask them, “Who guarantees this for you?”
[68:41] Do they have idols? Let their idols help them, if they are truthful.
[68:42] The day will come when they will be exposed, and they will be required to fall prostrate, but they will be unable to.
[68:43] With their eyes subdued, humiliation will cover them. They were invited to fall prostrate when they were whole and able.
[68:44] Therefore, let Me deal with those who reject this Hadith; we will lead them on whence they never perceive.
[68:45] I will give them enough rope; My scheming is formidable.
[68:46] Are you asking them for money, so they are burdened by the fine?
[68:47] Do they know the future? Do they have it recorded?
[68:48] You shall steadfastly persevere in carrying out the commands of your Lord. Do not be like (Jonah) who called from inside the fish.
[68:49] If it were not for his Lord’s grace, he would have been ejected into the desert as a sinner.
[68:50] But his Lord blessed him, and made him righteous.
[68:51] Those who disbelieved show their ridicule in their eyes when they hear the message and say, “He is crazy!”
[68:52] It is in fact a message to the world.
Sura 69: Incontestable (Al-Haaqqah)
Number of verses in sura: 52
Order of revelation: 78
[69:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[69:1] The incontestable (event).
[69:2] What an incontestable (event)!
[69:3] It is truly incontestable.
[69:4] Thamoud and `Aad disbelieved in the Shocker.
[69:5] As for Thamoud, they were annihilated by the devastating (quake).
[69:6] As for `Aad, they were annihilated by a persistent, violent storm.
[69:7] He unleashed it upon them for seven nights and eight days, violently. You could see the people tossed around like decayed palm trunks.
[69:8] Can you find any trace of them?
[69:9] Pharaoh, others before him, and the sinners (of Sodom) were wicked.
[69:10] They disobeyed the messenger of their Lord. Consequently, He requited them a devastating requital.
[69:11] The flood was devastating, so we carried you on the floating (ark).
[69:12] We rendered it a lesson for you, that any listening ear may understand.
[69:13] When the horn is blown once.
[69:14] The earth and the mountains will be carried off and crushed; utterly crushed.
[69:15] That is the day when the inevitable event will come to pass.
[69:16] The heaven will crack, and fall apart.
[69:17] The angels will be all around, and Your Lord’s dominion will then encompass eight (universes).
[69:18] On that day, you will be exposed, nothing of you can be hidden.
[69:19] As for the one who receives his record with his right hand, he will say, “Come read my record.
[69:20] “I did believe that I was going to be held accountable.”
[69:21] He has deserved a happy life.
[69:22] In an exalted Paradise.
[69:23] Its fruits are within reach.
[69:24] Eat and drink happily in return for your works in days past.
[69:25] As for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, “Oh, I wish I never received my record.
[69:26] “I wish I never knew my account.
[69:27] “I wish my death was eternal.
[69:28] “My money cannot help me.
[69:29] “All my power is gone.”
[69:30] Take him and shackle him.
[69:31] Burn him in Hell.
[69:32] In a chain that is seventy arms long, tie him up.
[69:33] For he did not believe in GOD, Most Great.
[69:34] Nor did he advocate the feeding of the poor.
[69:35] Consequently, he has no friend here.
[69:36] Nor any food, except the bitter variety.
[69:37] Food for the sinners.
[69:38] I swear by what you see.
[69:39] And what you do not see.
[69:40] This is the utterance of an honorable messenger.
[69:41] Not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe.
[69:42] Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed.
[69:43] A revelation from the Lord of the universe.
[69:44] Had he uttered any other teachings.
[69:45] We would have punished him.
[69:46] We would have stopped the revelations to him.
[69:47] None of you could have helped him.
[69:48] This is a reminder for the righteous.
[69:49] We know; some of you are rejectors.
[69:50] It is but sorrow for the disbelievers.
[69:51] It is the absolute truth.
[69:52] Therefore, you shall glorify the name of your Lord, Most Great.
Sura 70: The Heights (Al-Ma’aarej)
Number of verses in sura: 44
Order of revelation: 79
[70:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[70:1] A questioner may question the inevitable retribution.
[70:2] For the disbelievers, none can stop it.
[70:3] From GOD; Possessor of the highest Height.
[70:4] The angels, with their reports, climb to Him in a day that equals fifty thousand years.
[70:5] Therefore, you shall resort to a gracious patience.
[70:6] For they see it far away.
[70:7] While we see it very close.
[70:8] The day will come when the sky will be like molten rocks.
[70:9] The mountains will be like fluffy wool.
[70:10] No friend will care about his close friend.
[70:11] When they see them, the guilty will wish he could give his own children as ransom, to spare him the retribution of that day.
[70:12] Also his spouse, and his brother.
[70:13] Even his whole tribe that raised him.
[70:14] Even all the people on earth, if it would save him.
[70:15] No; it is aflame.
[70:16] Eager to burn.
[70:17] It calls on those who turned away.
[70:18] Those who hoarded and counted.
[70:19] Indeed, the human being is anxious.
[70:20] If touched by adversity, despondent.
[70:21] If blessed by wealth, stingy.
[70:22] Except for the worshipers.
[70:23] Who always observe their contact prayers (Salat).
[70:24] Part of their money is set aside.
[70:25] For the poor and the needy.
[70:26] They believe in the Day of Judgment.
[70:27] They reverence their Lord’s requital.
[70:28] Their Lord’s requital is not taken for granted.
[70:29] They keep their chastity.
[70:30] (They have relations) only with their spouses, or what is legally theirs –
[70:31] anyone who transgresses these limits is a sinner.
[70:32] And the believers keep their word; they are trustworthy.
[70:33] Their testimony is truthful.
[70:34] They consistently observe their contact prayers (Salat) on time.
[70:35] They have deserved a position of honor in Paradise.
[70:36] What is keeping those who disbelieved from joining you?
[70:37] To the right, and to the left, they flee.
[70:38] How can any of them expect to enter the blissful Paradise?
[70:39] Never; we created them, and they know from what.
[70:40] I solemnly swear by the Lord of the easts and the wests; we are able –
[70:41] to substitute better people in your place; we can never be defeated.
[70:42] Therefore, let them blunder and play, until they meet the day that is awaiting them.
[70:43] That is the day they come out of the graves in a hurry, as if herded to the (sacrificial) altars.
[70:44] With their eyes subdued, shame will cover them. That is the day that is awaiting them.
Sura 71: Noah (Noah)
Number of verses in sura: 28
Order of revelation: 71
[71:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[71:1] We sent Noah to his people: “You shall warn your people before a painful retribution afflicts them.”
[71:2] He said, “O my people, I am a manifest warner to you.
[71:3] “To alert you that you shall worship GOD, reverence Him, and obey me.
[71:4] “He will then forgive you your sins and respite you for a predetermined period. Most assuredly, GOD‘s appointment can never be delayed, once it is due, if you only knew.”
[71:5] He said, “My Lord, I have invited my people night and day.
[71:6] “But my invitation only increased their aversion.
[71:7] “Whenever I invited them to be forgiven by You, they placed their fingers in their ears, covered themselves with their clothes, insisted, and turned arrogant.
[71:8] “Then I invited them publicly.
[71:9] “Then I proclaimed to them loudly, and I spoke to them privately.
[71:10] “I said, `Implore your Lord for forgiveness; He is Forgiving.
[71:11] ” `He will then shower you generously with rain.
[71:12] ” `And provide you with money and children, and orchards, and streams.’ ”
[71:13] Why should you not strive to reverence GOD?
[71:14] He is the One who created you in stages.
[71:15] Do you not realize that GOD created seven universes in layers?
[71:16] He designed the moon therein to be a light, and placed the sun to be a lamp.
[71:17] And GOD germinated you from the earth like plants.
[71:18] Then He returns you into it, and He will surely bring you out.
[71:19] GOD made the earth habitable for you.
[71:20] That you may build roads therein.
[71:21] Noah said, “My Lord, they disobeyed me, and followed those who were even more corrupted when blessed with money and children.
[71:22] “They schemed terrible schemes.
[71:23] “They said, `Do not abandon your gods. Do not abandon Wadd, Suwaa`, Yaghouth, Ya`ooq, and Nasr.’
[71:24] “They misled many. Therefore, let the wicked plunge deeper into loss.”
[71:25] Because of their sins they were drowned and assigned to the hellfire. They found no helpers to protect them from GOD.
[71:26] Noah also said, “My Lord, do not leave a single disbeliever on earth.
[71:27] “For if you let them, they will only mislead your servants and give birth to nothing but wicked disbelievers.
[71:28] “My Lord, forgive me and my parents, and anyone who enters my home as a believer, and all the believing men and women. But do not give the disbelievers anything but annihilation.”
Sura 72: Jinns (Al-Jinn)
Number of verses in sura: 28
Order of revelation: 40
[72:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[72:1] Say, “I was inspired that a group of jinns listened, then said, `We have heard a wonderful Quran.
[72:2] ” `It guides to righteousness, and we have believed in it; we will never set up any idols beside our Lord.
[72:3] ” `The Most High is our only Lord. He never had a mate, nor a son.
[72:4] ” `It is the foolish among us who used to utter such nonsense about GOD.
[72:5] ” `We thought that neither the humans, nor the jinns, could possibly utter lies about GOD.
[72:6] ” `Human beings used to seek power through jinn beings, but they only afflicted them with a lot of adversity.
[72:7] ” `They thought, just like you thought, that GOD would not send another (messenger).
[72:8] ” `We touched the heaven and found it filled with formidable guards and projectiles.
[72:9] ” `We used to sit there in order to spy. Anyone who listens is pursued by a powerful projectile.
[72:10] ” `We have no idea if something bad is intended for the inhabitants of Earth, or if their Lord wills to redeem them.
[72:11] ” `Some of us are righteous, and some are less than righteous; we follow various paths.
[72:12] ” `We knew full well that we can never run away from GOD on Earth; we can never run away and escape.
[72:13] ” `When we heard the guidance, we believed therein. Anyone who believes in his Lord will never fear any injustice, nor any affliction.
[72:14] ” `Among us are the submitters, and among us are the compromisers.’ ” As for those who submitted, they are on the right path.
[72:15] As for the compromisers, they will be fuel for Gehenna.
[72:16] If they remain on the right path, we will bless them with abundant water.
[72:17] We will surely test them all. As for him who disregards the message of his Lord, He will direct him to ever increasing retribution.
[72:18] The places of worship belong to GOD; do not call on anyone else beside GOD.
[72:19] When GOD‘s servant advocated Him alone, almost all of them banded together to oppose him.
[72:20] Say, “I worship only my Lord; I never set up any idols beside Him.”
[72:21] Say, “I possess no power to harm you, nor to guide you.”
[72:22] Say, “No one can protect me from GOD, nor can I find any other refuge beside Him.
[72:23] “I deliver GOD‘s proclamations and messages.” Those who disobey GOD and His messenger incur the fire of Hell, wherein they abide forever.
[72:24] Once they see what is awaiting them, they will find out who is really weaker in power, and fewer in number.
[72:25] Say, “I do not know if what is promised to you will happen soon, or if my Lord will delay it for awhile.”
[72:26] He is the Knower of the future; He does not reveal the future to anyone.
[72:27] Only to a messenger that He chooses,* does He reveal from the past and the future, specific news.
[72:28] This is to ascertain that they have delivered their Lord’s messages. He is fully aware of what they have. He has counted the numbers of all things.
