1. Alif-Lam-Mim-Suad,
2. This is a Book sent down toward thee: so let there be no straitness in thy breast therefor: that thou mayest warn thereby! and this is an admonition unto the believers.
3. Follow that which is sent down toward you from your Lord, and follow not any patrons beside Him; yet little ye are admonished.
4. And how many a township We have destroyed, upon them Our violence came at night or while they were taking their midday rest.
5. Then naught was their cry a when Our violence came upon them save that they said: verily we have been the wrong-doers.
6. Then We will surely question those to whom were the messengers sent, and We will surely question the sent ones.
7. Then surely We will recount unto them with knowledge, and We have not been absent.
8. And the weighing on that Day is certain, then whosesoever balances will be heavy, those! they shall fare well.
9. And whosesoever balances will be light - those are they who have lost themselves in respect of Our signs.
10. And assuredly We established you in the earth and appointed for you livelihoods therein; yet little thanks ye return.
11. And assuredly We created you, thereafter We fashioned you, and thereafter We said to the angels: prostrate yourselves before Adam; then they fell prostrate; not so Iblis: he was not of those who fell prostrate.
12. Allah said: what prevented thee, that thou shouldst not prostrate thyself, when I bade thee? He said. I am better than he; me Thou createdest me from fire, and him Thou createdest from clay.
13. Allah said: then get thee down from hence; not for thee is it to be stiff-necked herein. So go thou forth; verily thou art of the abject ones.
14. He said: respite me till the Day they shall be raised up.
15. Allah said: verily thou art of the respited.
16. He said: because Thou hast seduced me, I will beset for them Thy straight path.
17. Then surely I will come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right and from their left, and Thou shalt not find the most of them thankful.
18. Allah said: go thou forth from hence, scorned, driven away. Whosoever of them followeth thee, I will of a surety fill Hell with you all.
19. And: O Adam: dwell thou and thy spouse in the Garden and eat ye twain thereof Whence ye will, and approach not yonder tree lest ye twain become of the wrong-doers.
20. Then the Satan whispered unto the twain in order that he might discover unto the twain that which lay hidden from the twain of their shame, and said: your Lord forbade you not vender tree but lest ye twain should become angels or become of the abiders.
21. And he sware unto them both: verily I am unto you of your good counsellors.
22. Thus with guile he caused the twain to fall. Then when the twain had tasted of the tree, their shame was discovered to them, and the twain began to cover themselves with leaves from the Garden; and their Lord called out unto the twain: forbade I not ye twain yonder tree, and said I not unto you, verily the Satan is unto you twain a manifest enemy?
23. The twain said. our Lord! we have wronged our souls, and if Thou forgivest us not and hath not mercy on us, we shall of a surety be of the losers.
24. Allah said: get ye down, one of you an enemy unto anot her; and for you on the earth there shall be a habitation and provision for a season.
25. Allah said: therein ye shall live and therein ye shall die, and therefrom ye shall be brought forth.
26. O Children of Adam! verily We have sent down unto you a garment covering your shame and as an adornment; and the garment of piety --that is the best. That is of the signss of Allah, that haply they may be admonished.
27. O Children of Adam! let not the Satan tempt you even as he drave forth your parents from the Garden, divesting the twain of their garment that he might discover unto the twain their shame. Verily he beholdeth you, he and his tribe, in such wise that ye behold them not. Verily We have made the Satans patrons of those only who believe not.
28. And when they commit an indecency, they say: we found our fathers thereon, and God hath enjoined it on us. Say thou. verily Allah enjoineth not an indecency; say ye falsely of Allah that which ye know not?
29. Say thou; my Lord hath enjoined equity, and that ye shall set your faces aright at every prostration, and call on Him, making religion pure for Him. Even as He began you; ye shall be brought back.
30. A part He hath guided, and upon a part the straying hath been justified. Verily they have taken the Satans as patrons instead of Allah and they imagine that they are guided ones.
