Surah 26 - Al Shu'ara' THE POETS -026.201-026.227
026.201 They will not believe in it until they see the grievous Penalty;
026.202 But the (Penalty) will come to them of a sudden, while they perceive it not;
026.203 Then they will say: "Shall we be respited?"
026.204 Do they then ask for Our Penalty to be hastened on?
026.205 Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few years,
026.206 Yet there comes to them at length the (Punishment) which they were promised!
026.207 It will profit them not that they enjoyed (this life)!
026.208 Never did We destroy a population, but had its warners -
026.209 By way of reminder; and We never are unjust.
026.210 No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation):
026.211 It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it).
026.212 Indeed they have been removed far from even (a chance of) hearing it.
026.213 So call not on any other god with Allah, or thou wilt be among those under the Penalty.
026.214 And admonish thy nearest kinsmen,
026.215 And lower thy wing to the Believers who follow thee.
026.216 Then if they disobey thee, say: "I am free (of responsibility) for what ye do!"
026.217 And put thy trust on the Exalted in Might, the Merciful,-
026.218 Who seeth thee standing forth (in prayer),
026.219 And thy movements among those who prostrate themselves,
026.220 For it is He Who heareth and knoweth all things.
026.221 Shall I inform you, (O people!), on whom it is that the evil ones descend?
026.222 They descend on every lying, wicked person,
026.223 (Into whose ears) they pour hearsay vanities, and most of them are liars.
026.224 And the Poets,- It is those straying in Evil, who follow them:
026.225 Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?-
026.226 And that they say what they practise not?-
026.227 Except those who believe, work righteousness, engage much in the remembrance of Allah, and defend themselves only after they are unjustly attacked. And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!
