1-30 | 31-60 | 61-90 | 91-112

1. There hath approached unto mankind their reckoning, while they in neglect are turning away.
2. There cometh not unto them a fresh admonition from their Lord but they listen to it while they are playing.
3. In sport being their hearts. And those who do wrong keep secret their private discourse this is but a human being like unto yourselves; will ye then betake yourselves to magic while ye know?
4. The Prophet said: my Lord knoweth the word in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Hearer, the Knower.
5. Aye! they say: a medley of dreams; aye! he hath fabricated it; aye! he is a poet; so let him bring us a sign even as the ancients were sent with.
6. Not a city before them which We destroyed believed; will they then believe?
7. And We sent not before thee but men unto whom We revealed; so ask the people of the Admonition if ye know not.
8. And We made them not bodies not eating food; nor were they to be abiders.
9. Then We made good unto them the premise; so We delivered them and those whom We willed, and We destroyed the extravagant.
10. And assuredly We have sent down unto you a Book wherein is admonition for you; will ye not then reflect?
11. And how many a city have We overthrown which were doing wrong, and We caused to grow up thereafter anot her nation!
12. Then when they perceived Our violence, lo! they were from it fleeing.
13. Flee not, and return unto that wherein ye luxuriated and your habitations, haply ye will be questioned.
14. They said: woe unto us! verily we have been wrong-doers.
15. And this ceased not to be their cry until We made them a harvestreaped, extinguished.
16. And We created not the heaven and the earth and that which is in between in play.
17. Had We intended that We should choose a sport, surely We would choose it from before Us--if We were ever going to do that.
18. Aye! We hurl truth against false hood, so that it braineth it, and lo! it vanisheth; and to you be the woe for that which ye utter!
19. And His is whosoever is in the heavens and the earth; and those nigh unto Him are not too stiff-necked for His worship nor are they weary.
20. And they hallow Him night and day, and they flag not.
21. Have they taken gods from the earth who raise the deed?
22. Had there been in between the twain gods except Allah surely the twain would have gone to ruin. Hallowed be Allah, the Lord of the Throne, from that which they utter!
23. He shall be questioned not as to that which He doth, while they shall be questioned.
24. Have they taken gods beside Him? Say thou: forth with your proof This is an admonition unto those with me and an admonition unto those before me. But most of them knew not the truth, and so they are averters.
25. And We sent not before thee an apostle but We revealed unto him that there is no god but I, so worship Me.
26. And they say; the Compaionate hath taken a son. Hallowed be He! aye! they are bondmen honoured.
27. They precede Him not in words, and by His command they work.
28. He knoweth whatsoever is before them and whatsoever is behind them; and they intercede not except for him whom He approveth, and in awe of Him they are fearful.
29. And whosoever of them should say: verily I am a god beside Him, such a one We shall requite with Hell; Thus We requite the wrong-doers.
30. Have not these who disbelieve considered that the heavens and the earth were closed up, then We rent them? And We have made of water everything living; will they not then believe?
