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.
