Surah 15 - Al Hijr - THE ROCKY TRACT 015.051 - 015.099
015.051 Tell them about the guests of Abraham.
015.052 When they entered his presence and said, "Peace!" He said, "We feel afraid of you!"
015.053 They said: "Fear not! We give thee glad tidings of a son endowed with wisdom."
015.054 He said: "Do ye give me glad tidings that old age has seized me? Of what, then, is your good news?"
015.055 They said: "We give thee glad tidings in truth: be not then in despair!"
015.056 He said: "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord, but such as go astray?"
015.057 Abraham said: "What then is the business on which ye (have come), O ye messengers (of God)?"
015.058 They said: "We have been sent to a people (deep) in sin,
015.059 "Excepting the adherents of Lut: them we are certainly (charged) to save (from harm),- All -
015.060 "Except his wife, who, We have ascertained, will be among those who will lag behind."
015.061 At length when the messengers arrived among the adherents of Lut,
015.062 He said: "Ye appear to be uncommon folk."
015.063 They said: "Yea, we have come to thee to accomplish that of which they doubt.
015.064 "We have brought to thee that which is inevitably due, and assuredly we tell the truth.
015.065 "Then travel by night with thy household, when a portion of the night (yet remains), and do thou bring up the rear: let no one amongst you look back, but pass on whither ye are ordered."
015.066 And We made known this decree to him, that the last remnants of those (sinners) should be cut off by the morning.
015.067 The inhabitants of the city came in (mad) joy (at news of the young men).
015.068 Lut said: "These are my guests: disgrace me not:
015.069 "But fear God, and shame me not."
015.070 They said: "Did we not forbid thee (to speak) for all and sundry?"
015.071 He said: "There are my daughters (to marry), if ye must act (so)."
015.072 Verily, by thy life (O Prophet), in their wild intoxication, they wander in distraction, to and fro.
015.073 But the (mighty) Blast overtook them before morning,
015.074 And We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay.
015.075 Behold! in this are Signs for those who by tokens do understand.
015.076 And the (cities were) right on the high-road.
015.077 Behold! in this is a sign for those who believed.
015.078 And the Companions of the Wood were also wrong-doers;
015.079 So We exacted retribution from them. They were both on an open highway, plain to see.
015.080 The Companions of the Rocky Tract also rejected the apostles:
015.081 We sent them Our Signs, but they persisted in turning away from them.
015.082 Out of the mountains did they hew (their) edifices, (feeling themselves) secure.
015.083 But the (mighty) Blast seized them of a morning,
015.084 And of no avail to them was all that they did (with such art and care)!
015.085 We created not the heavens, the earth, and all between them, but for just ends. And the Hour is surely coming (when this will be manifest). So overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.
015.086 For verily it is thy Lord who is the Master-Creator, knowing all things.
015.087 And We have bestowed upon thee the Seven Oft-repeated (verses) and the Grand Qur'an.
015.088 Strain not thine eyes. (Wistfully) at what We have bestowed on certain classes of them, nor grieve over them: but lower thy wing (in gentleness) to the believers.
015.089 And say: "I am indeed he that warneth openly and without ambiguity,"-
015.090 (Of just such wrath) as We sent down on those who divided (Scripture into arbitrary parts),-
015.091 (So also on such) as have made Qur'an into shreds (as they please).
015.092 Therefore, by the Lord, We will, of a surety, call them to account,
015.093 For all their deeds.
015.094 Therefore expound openly what thou art commanded, and turn away from those who join false gods with God.
015.095 For sufficient are We unto thee against those who scoff,-
015.096 Those who adopt, with God, another god: but soon will they come to know.
015.097 We do indeed know how thy heart is distressed at what they say.
015.098 But celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and be of those who prostrate themselves in adoration.
015.099 And serve thy Lord until there come unto thee the Hour that is Certain.
