Surah 26 - Al Shu'ara' THE POETS -026.151-026.200
026.151 "And follow not the bidding of those who are extravagant,-
026.152 "Who make mischief in the land, and mend not (their ways)."
026.153 They said: "Thou art only one of those bewitched!
026.154 "Thou art no more than a mortal like us: then bring us a Sign, if thou tellest the truth!"
026.155 He said: "Here is a she-camel: she has a right of watering, and ye have a right of watering, (severally) on a day appointed.
026.156 "Touch her not with harm, lest the Penalty of a Great Day seize you."
026.157 But they ham-strung her: then did they become full of regrets.
026.158 But the Penalty seized them. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them did not believe.
026.159 And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
026.160 The people of Lut rejected the messengers.
026.161 Behold, their brother Lut said to them: "Will ye not fear (Allah)?
026.162 "I am to you an messenger worthy of all trust.
026.163 "So fear Allah and obey me.
026.164 "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the lord of the Worlds.
026.165 "Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males,
026.166 "And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing (all limits)!"
026.167 They said: "If thou desist not, O Lut! Thou wilt assuredly be cast out!"
026.168 He said: "I do detest your doings."
026.169 "O my Lord! Deliver me and my family from such things as they do!"
026.170 So We delivered him and his family,- all
026.171 Except an old woman who lingered behind.
026.172 But the rest We destroyed utterly.
026.173 We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!
026.174 Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.
026.175 And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might Most Merciful.
026.176 The Companions of the Wood rejected the messengers.
026.177 Behold, Shu'aib said to them: "Will ye not fear (Allah)?
026.178 "I am to you an messenger worthy of all trust.
026.179 "So fear Allah and obey me.
026.180 "No reward do I ask of you for it: my reward is only from the Lord of the Worlds.
026.181 "Give just measure, and cause no loss (to others by fraud).
026.182 "And weigh with scales true and upright.
026.183 "And withhold not things justly due to men, nor do evil in the land, working mischief.
026.184 "And fear Him Who created you and (who created) the generations before (you)"
026.185 They said: "Thou art only one of those bewitched!
026.186 "Thou art no more than a mortal like us, and indeed we think thou art a liar!
026.187 "Now cause a piece of the sky to fall on us, if thou art truthful!"
026.188 He said: "My Lord knows best what ye do."
026.189 But they rejected him. Then the punishment of a day of overshadowing gloom seized them, and that was the Penalty of a Great Day.
026.190 Verily in that is a Sign: But most of them do not believe.
026.191 And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
026.192 Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds:
026.193 With it came down the spirit of Faith and Truth-
026.194 To thy heart and mind, that thou mayest admonish.
026.195 In the perspicuous Arabic tongue.
026.196 Without doubt it is (announced) in the revealed Books of former peoples.
026.197 Is it not a Sign to them that the Learned of the Children of Israel knew it (as true)?
026.198 Had We revealed it to any of the non-Arabs,
026.199 And had he recited it to them, they would not have believed in it.
026.200 Thus have We caused it to enter the hearts of the sinners.
