In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[27.1] Ta Sin! These are
the verses of the Quran and the Book that makes (things) clear
[27.2] A guidance and good news for the believers,
[27.3] Who keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and of
the hereafter, they are sure.
[27.4] As to those who do not believe in the hereafter,
We have surely made their deeds fair-seeming to them, but they
blindly wander on.
[27.5] These are they who shall have an evil punishment,
and in the hereafter they shall be the greatest losers.
[27.6] And most surely you are made to receive the Quran
from the Wise, the Knowing God.
[27.7] When Musa said to his family: Surely I see fire; I
will bring to you from it some news, or I will bring to you
therefrom a burning firebrand so that you may warm yourselves.
[27.8] So when he came to it a voice was uttered saying:
Blessed is Whoever is in the fire and whatever is about it; and
glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds;
[27.9] O Musa! surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise;
[27.10] And cast down your staff. So when he saw it in
motion as if it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and
did not return: O Musa! fear not; surely the apostles shall not
fear in My presence;
[27.11] Neither he who has been unjust, then he does good
instead after evil, for surely I am the Forgiving, the Merciful:
[27.12] And enter your hand into the opening of your
bosom, it shall come forth white without evil; among nine signs
to Firon and his people, surely they are a transgressing people.
[27.13] So when Our clear signs came to them, they said:
This is clear enchantment.
[27.14] And they denied them unjustly and proudly while
their soul had been convinced of them; consider, then how was
the end of the mischief-makers.
[27.15] And certainly We gave knowledge to Dawood and
Sulaiman, and they both said: Praise be to Allah, Who has made
us to excel many of His believing servants.
[27.16] And Sulaiman was Dawood's heir, and he said: O
men! we have been taught the language of birds, and we have been
given all things; most surely this is manifest grace.
[27.17] And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the
birds were gathered to him, and they were formed into groups.
[27.18] Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a
Namlite said: O Naml! enter your houses, (that) Sulaiman and his
hosts may not crush you while they do not know.
[27.19] So he smiled, wondering at her word, and said: My
Lord! grant me that I should be grateful for Thy favor which
Thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I should do
good such as Thou art pleased with, and make me enter, by Thy
mercy, into Thy servants, the good ones.
[27.20] And he reviewed the birds, then said: How is it I
see not the hoopoe or is it that he is of the absentees?
[27.21] 1 will most certainly punish him with a severe
punishment, or kill him, or he shall bring to me a clear plea.
[27.22] And he tarried not long, then said: I comprehend
that which you do not comprehend and I have brought to you a
sure information from Sheba.
[27.23] Surely I found a woman ruling over them, and she
has been given abundance and she has a mighty throne:
[27.24] 1 found her and her people adoring the sun
instead of Allah, and the Shaitan has made their deeds
fair-seeming to them and thus turned them from the way, so they
do not go aright
[27.25] That they do not make obeisance to Allah, Who
brings forth what is hidden in the heavens and the earth and
knows what you hide and what you make manifest:
[27.26] Allah, there is no god but He: He is the Lord of
[27.27] He said: We will see whether you have told the
truth or whether you are of the liars:
[27.28] Take this my letter and hand it over to them,
then turn away from them and see what (answer) they return.
[27.29] She said: O chief! surely an honorable letter has
been delivered to me
[27.30] Surely it is from Sulaiman, and surely it is in
the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful;
[27.31] Saying: exalt not yourselves against me and come
to me in submission.
[27.32] She said: O chiefs! give me advice respecting my
affair: I never decide an affair until you are in my presence.
[27.33] They said: We are possessors of strength and
possessors of mighty prowess, and the command is yours,
therefore see what you will command.
[27.34] She said: Surely the kings, when they enter a
town, ruin it and make the noblest of its people to be low, and
thus they (always) do;
[27.35] And surely I am going to send a present to them,
and shall wait to see what (answer) do the messengers bring
[27.36] So when he came to Sulaiman, he said: What! will
you help me with wealth? But what Allah has given me is better
than what He has given you. Nay, you are exultant because of
[27.37] Go back to them, so we will most certainly come
to them with hosts which they shall have no power to oppose, and
we will most certainly expel them therefrom in abasement, and
they shall be in a state of ignominy.
[27.38] He said: O chiefs! which of you can bring to me
her throne before they come to me in submission?
[27.39] One audacious among the jinn said: I will bring
it to you before you rise up from your place; and most surely I
am strong (and) trusty for it.
[27.40] One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I
will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he
saw it settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my
Lord that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful; and
whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and
whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-sufficient,
[27.41] He said: Alter her throne for her, we will see
whether she follows the right way or is of those who do not go
[27.42] So when she came, it was said: Is your throne
like this? She said: It is as it were the same, and we were
given the knowledge before it, and we were submissive.
[27.43] And what she worshipped besides Allah prevented
her, surely she was of an unbelieving people.
[27.44] It was said to her: Enter the palace; but when
she saw it she deemed it to be a great expanse of water, and
bared her legs. He said: Surely it is a palace made smooth with
glass. She said: My Lord! surely I have been unjust to myself,
and I submit with Sulaiman to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
[27.45] And certainly We sent to Samood their brother
Salih, saying: Serve Allah; and lo! they became two sects
quarrelling with each other.
[27.46] He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten
on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of
Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully?
[27.47] They said: We have met with ill luck on account
of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of
your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are
[27.48] And there were in the city nine persons who made
mischief in the land and did not act aright.
[27.49] They said: Swear to each other by Allah that we
will certainly make a sudden attack on him and his family by
night, then we will say to his heir: We did not witness the
destruction of his family, and we are most surely truthful.
[27.50] And they planned a plan, and We planned a plan
while they perceived not.
[27.51] See, then, how was the end of their plan that We
destroyed them and their people, all (of them).
[27.52] So those are their houses fallen down because
they were unjust, most surely there is a sign in this for a
people who know.
[27.53] .And We delivered those who believed and who
guarded (against evil).
[27.54] And (We sent) Lut, when he said to his people:
What! do you commit indecency while you see?
[27.55] What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather
than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly.
[27.56] But the answer of his people was no other except
that they ~s said: Turn out Lut's followers from your town;
surely they are a people who would keep pure!
[27.57] But We delivered him and his followers except his
wife; We ordained her to be of those who remained behind.
[27.58] And We rained on them a rain, and evil was the
rain of those who had been warned.
[27.59] Say: Praise be to Allah and peace on His servants
whom He has chosen: is Allah better, or what they associate
[27.60] Nay, He Who created the heavens and the earth,
and sent down for you water from the cloud; then We cause to
grow thereby beautiful gardens; it is not possible for you that
you should make the trees thereof to grow. Is there a god with
Allah? Nay! they are people who deviate.
[27.61] Or, Who made the earth a restingplace, and made
in it rivers, and raised on it mountains and placed between the
two seas a barrier. Is there a god with Allah? Nay! most of them
do not know!
[27.62] Or, Who answers the distressed one when he calls
upon Him and removes the evil, and He will make you successors
in the earth. Is there a god with Allah? Little is it that you
[27.63] Or, Who guides you in utter darkness of the land
and the sea, and Who sends the winds as good news before His
mercy. Is there a god with Allah? Exalted by Allah above what
they associate (with Him).
[27.64] Or, Who originates the creation, then reproduces
it and Who gives you sustenance from the heaven and the earth.
Is there a god With Allah? Say: Bring your proof if you are
[27.65] Say: No one in the heavens and the earth knows
the unseen but Allah; and they do not know when they shall be
[27.66] Nay, their knowledge respecting the hereafter is
slight and hasty; nay, they are in doubt about it; nay, they are
quite blind to
[27.67] And those who disbelieve say: What! when we have
become dust and our fathers (too), shall we certainly be brought
[27.68] We have certainly been promised this, we and our
fathers before; these are naught but stories of the ancients
[27.69] Say: Travel in the earth, then see how was the
end of the guilty.
[27.70] And grieve not for them and be not distressed
because of what they plan.
[27.71] And they say: When will this threat come to pass,
if you are truthful?
[27.72] Say: Maybe there may have drawn near to you
somewhat of that which you seek to hasten on.
[27.73] And surely your Lord is the Lord of grace to men,
but most of them are not grateful.
[27.74] And most surely your Lord knows what their
breasts conceal and what they manifest.
[27.75] And there is nothing concealed in the heaven and
the earth but it is in a clear book.
[27.76] Surely this Quran declares to the children of
Israel most of what they differ in.
[27.77] And most surely it is a guidance and a mercy for
[27.78] Surely your Lord will judge between them by his
judgment, and He is the Mighty, the knowing.
[27.79] Therefore rely on Allah; surely you are on the
[27.80] Surely you do not make the dead to hear, and you
do not make the deaf to hear the call when they go back
[27.81] Nor can you be a guide to the blind out of their
error; you cannot make to bear (any one) except those who
believe in Our communications, so they submit.
[27.82] And when the word shall come to pass against
them, We shall bring forth for them a creature from the earth
that shall i wound them, because people did not believe in Our
[27.83] And on the day when We will gather from every
nation a party from among those who rejected Our communications,
then they shall be formed into groups.
[27.84] Until when they come, He will say: Did you reject
My communications while you had no comprehensive knowledge of
them? Or what was it that you did?
[27.85] And the word shall come to pass against them
because they were unjust, so they shall not speak.
[27.86] Do they not consider that We have made the night
that. they may rest therein, and the day to give light? Most
surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.
[27.87] And on the day when the trumpet shall be blown,
then those who are in the heavens and those who are in the earth
shall be terrified except such as Allah please, and all shall
come to him abased.
[27.88] And you see the mountains, you think them to be
solid, and they shall pass away as the passing away of the
cloud-- the handiwork of Allah Who has made every thing
thoroughly; surely He is Aware of what you do.
[27.89] Whoever brings good, he shall have better than
it; and they shall be secure from terror on the day.
[27.90] And whoever brings evil, these shall be thrown
down on their faces into the fire; shall you be rewarded (for)
aught except what you did?
[27.91] I am commanded only that I should serve the Lord
of this city, Who has made it sacred, and His are all things;
and I am commanded that I should be of these who submit;
[27.92] And that I should recite the Quran. Therefore
whoever goes aright, he goes aright for his own soul, and
whoever goes ' astray, then say: I am only one of the warners.
[27.93] And say: Praise be to Allah, He will show you His
signs so that you shall recognize them; nor is your Lord
heedless of what you do.
