In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

2:51. And remember We appointed forty nights for Moses, and in his absence ye took the calf (for worship), and ye did grievous wrong.
2:52. Even then We did forgive you; there was a chance for you to be grateful.
2:53. And remember We gave Moses the Scripture and the Criterion (Between right and wrong): There was a chance for you to be guided aright.
2:54. And remember Moses said to his people: "O my people! Ye have indeed wronged yourselves by your worship of the calf: So turn (in repentance) to your Maker, and slay yourselves (the wrong-doers); that will be better for you in the sight of your Maker." Then He turned towards you (in forgiveness): For He is Oft- Returning, Most Merciful.
2:55. And remember ye said: "O Moses! We shall never believe in thee until we see Allah manifestly," but ye were dazed with thunder and lighting even as ye looked on.
2:56. Then We raised you up after your death: Ye had the chance to be grateful.
2:57. And We gave you the shade of clouds and sent down to you Manna and quails, saying: "Eat of the good things We have provided for you:" (But they rebelled); to us they did no harm, but they harmed their own souls.
2:58. And remember We said: "Enter this town, and eat of the plenty therein as ye wish; but enter the gate with humility, in posture and in words, and We shall forgive you your faults and increase (the portion of) those who do good."
2:59. But the transgressors changed the word from that which had been given them; so We sent on the transgressors a plague from heaven, for that they infringed (Our command) repeatedly.

2:92. There came to you Moses with clear (Signs); yet ye worshipped the calf (Even) after that, and ye did behave wrongfully.
2: 93. And remember We took your covenant and We raised above you (the towering height) of Mount (Sinai): (Saying): "Hold firmly to what We have given you, and hearken (to the Law)": They said:" We hear, and we disobey:" And they had to drink into their hearts (of the taint) of the calf because of their Faithlessness. Say: "Vile indeed are the behests of your Faith if ye have any faith!"
2: 94. Say: "If the last Home, with Allah, be for you specially, and not for anyone else, then seek ye for death, if ye are sincere."
2: 95. But they will never seek for death, on account of the (sins) which their hands have sent on before them. and Allah is well-acquainted with the wrong-doers.
2: 96. Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that they do.

2:170. When it is said to them: "Follow what Allah hath revealed:" They say: "Nay! we shall follow the ways of our fathers." What! even though their fathers Were void of wisdom and guidance?
2:171. The parable of those who reject Faith is as if one were to shout Like a goat-herd, to things that listen to nothing but calls and cries: Deaf, dumb, and blind, they are void of wisdom.

2:221. Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allures you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the Fire. But Allah beckons by His Grace to the Garden (of bliss) and forgiveness, and makes His Signs clear to mankind: That they may celebrate His praise.

4:153. The people of the Book ask thee to cause a book to descend to them from heaven: Indeed they asked Moses for an even greater (miracle), for they said: "Show us Allah in public," but they were dazed for their presumption, with thunder and lightning. Yet they worshipped the calf even after clear signs had come to them; even so we forgave them; and gave Moses manifest proofs of authority.
5: 103. It was not Allah who instituted (superstitions like those of) a slit-ear she- camel, or a she-camel let loose for free pasture, or idol sacrifices for twin-births in animals, or stallion-camels freed from work: It is blasphemers who invent a lie against Allah. but most of them lack wisdom.
5:104. When it is said to them: "Come to what Allah hath revealed; come to the Messenger.: They say: "Enough for us are the ways we found our fathers following." what! even though their fathers were void of knowledge and guidance?
5:105. O ye who believe! Guard your own souls: If ye follow (right) guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who stray. the goal of you all is to Allah. it is He that will show you the truth of all that ye do.
6:74. Lo! Abraham said to his father Azar: "Takest thou idols for gods? For I see thee and thy people in manifest error."
6:75. So also did We show Abraham the power and the laws of the heavens and the earth, that he might (with understanding) have certitude.
6:76. When the night covered him over, He saw a star: He said: "This is my Lord." But when it set, He said: "I love not those that set."
6:77. When he saw the moon rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord." But when the moon set, He said: "unless my Lord guide me, I shall surely be among those who go astray."
6:78. When he saw the sun rising in splendour, he said: "This is my Lord; this is the greatest (of all)." But when the sun set, he said: "O my people! I am indeed free from your (guilt) of giving partners to Allah.
6:79. "For me, I have set my face, firmly and truly, towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I give partners to Allah."
6:80. His people disputed with him. He said: "(Come) ye to dispute with me, about Allah, when He (Himself) hath guided me? I fear not (the beings) ye associate with Allah. Unless my Lord willeth, (nothing can happen). My Lord comprehendeth in His knowledge all things. Will ye not (yourselves) be admonished?
6:81. "How should I fear (the beings) ye associate with Allah, when ye fear not to give partners to Allah without any warrant having been given to you? Which of (us) two parties hath more right to security? (tell me) if ye know.
6:82. "It is those who believe and confuse not their beliefs with wrong - that are (truly) in security, for they are on (right) guidance."
6:83. That was the reasoning about Us, which We gave to Abraham (to use) against his people: We raise whom We will, degree after degree: for thy Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge.

6:148. Those who give partners (to Allah. will say: "If Allah had wished, we should not have given partners to Him nor would our fathers; nor should we have had any taboos." So did their ancestors argue falsely, until they tasted of Our wrath. Say: "Have ye any (certain) knowledge? If so, produce it before us. Ye follow nothing but conjecture: ye do nothing but lie."
6:149. Say: "With Allah is the argument that reaches home: if it had been His will, He could indeed have guided you all."
6:150. Say: "Bring forward your witnesses to prove that Allah did forbid so and so." If they bring such witnesses, be not thou amongst them: Nor follow thou the vain desires of such as treat our signs as falsehoods, and such as believe not in the Hereafter: for they hold others as equal with their Guardian-Lord. 

7:27. O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he and his tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith.
7:28. When they do aught that is shameful, they say: "We found our fathers doing so"; and "(Allah) commanded us thus": Say: "Nay, Allah never commands what is shameful: do ye say of Allah what ye know not?"
7:29. Say: "My Lord hath commanded justice; and that ye set your whole selves (to Him) at every time and place of prayer, and call upon Him, making your devotion sincere as in His sight: such as He created you in the beginning, so shall ye return."
7:30. Some He hath guided: Others have (by their choice) deserved the loss of their way; in that they took the evil ones, in preference to Allah, for their friends and protectors, and think that they receive guidance.

7:70. They said: "Comest thou to us, that we may worship Allah alone, and give up the cult of our fathers? bring us what thou threatenest us with, if so be that thou tellest the truth!"
7:71. He said: "Punishment and wrath have already come upon you from your Lord: dispute ye with me over names which ye have devised - ye and your fathers,- without authority from Allah. then wait: I am amongst you, also waiting."
7:72. We saved him and those who adhered to him. By Our mercy, and We cut off the roots of those who rejected Our signs and did not believe.

7:138. We took the Children of Israel (with safety) across the sea. They came upon a people devoted entirely to some idols they had. They said: "O Moses! fashion for us a god like unto the gods they have." He said: "Surely ye are a people without knowledge.
7:139. "As to these folk,- the cult they are in is (but) a fragment of a ruin, and vain is the (worship) which they practise."
7:140. He said: "Shall I seek for you a god other than the (true) Allah, when it is Allah Who hath endowed you with gifts above the nations?"
7:141. And remember We rescued you from Pharaoh's people, who afflicted you with the worst of penalties, who slew your male children and saved alive your females: in that was a momentous trial from your Lord.
7:148. The people of Moses made, in his absence, out of their ornaments, the image of calf, (for worship): it seemed to low: did they not see that it could neither speak to them, nor show them the way? They took it for worship and they did wrong.
7:149. When they repented, and saw that they had erred, they said: "If our Lord have not mercy upon us and forgive us, we shall indeed be of those who perish."
7:150. When Moses came back to his people, angry and grieved, he said: "Evil it is that ye have done in my place in my absence: did ye make haste to bring on the judgment of your Lord?" He put down the tablets, seized his brother by (the hair of) his head, and dragged him to him. Aaron said: "Son of my mother! the people did indeed reckon me as naught, and went near to slaying me! Make not the enemies rejoice over my misfortune, nor count thou me amongst the people of sin."
7:151. Moses prayed: "O my Lord! forgive me and my brother! admit us to Thy mercy! for Thou art the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!"
7:152. Those who took the calf (for worship) will indeed be overwhelmed with wrath from their Lord, and with shame in this life: thus do We recompense those who invent (falsehoods).
7:153. But those who do wrong but repent thereafter and (truly) believe,- verily thy Lord is thereafter Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
7:173. Or lest ye should say: "Our fathers before us may have taken false gods, but we are (their) descendants after them: wilt Thou then destroy us because of the deeds of men who were futile?"
7:174. Thus do We explain the signs in detail; and perchance they may turn (unto Us).
7:175. Relate to them the story of the man to whom We sent Our signs, but he passed them by: so Satan followed him up, and he went astray.
7:176. If it had been Our will, We should have elevated him with Our signs; but he inclined to the earth, and followed his own vain desires. His similitude is that of a dog: if you attack him, he lolls out his tongue, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls out his tongue. That is the similitude of those who reject Our signs; So relate the story; perchance they may reflect.
7:177. Evil as an example are people who reject Our signs and wrong their own souls.
7:178. Whom Allah doth guide,- he is on the right path: whom He rejects from His guidance,- such are the persons who perish.
7:179. Many are the Jinns and men we have made for Hell: They have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not. They are like cattle,- nay more misguided: for they are heedless (of warning).
7:180. The most beautiful names belong to Allah. so call on him by them; but shun such men as use profanity in his names: for what they do, they will soon be requited. 

9:23. O ye who believe! take not for protectors your fathers and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith: if any of you do so, they do wrong.
9:24. Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight - are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause;- then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious.

11:62. They said: "O Salih! thou hast been of us! a centre of our hopes hitherto! dost thou (now) forbid us the worship of what our fathers worshipped? But we are really in suspicious (disquieting) doubt as to that to which thou invitest us."
11:63. He said: "O my people! do ye see? if I have a Clear (Sign) from my Lord and He hath sent Mercy unto me from Himself,- who then can help me against Allah if I were to disobey Him? What then would ye add to my (portion) but perdition?

11:87. They said: "O Shu'aib! Does thy (religion of) prayer command thee that we leave off the worship which our fathers practised, or that we leave off doing what we like with our property? truly, thou art the one that forbeareth with faults and is right- minded!"
11:88. He said: "O my people! see ye whether I have a Clear (Sign) from my Lord, and He hath given me sustenance (pure and) good as from Himself? I wish not, in opposition to you, to do that which I forbid you to do. I only desire (your) betterment to the best of my power; and my success (in my task) can only come from Allah. In Him I trust, and unto Him I look.
11:89. "And O my people! let not my dissent (from you) cause you to sin, lest ye suffer a fate similar to that of the people of Noah or of Hud or of Salih, nor are the people of Lut far off from you!
11:90. "But ask forgiveness of your Lord, and turn unto Him (in repentance): For my Lord is indeed full of mercy and loving-kindness."
11:91. They said: "O Shu'aib! much of what thou sayest we do not understand! In fact among us we see that thou hast no strength! Were it not for thy family, we should certainly have stoned thee! for thou hast among us no great position!"
11:92. He said: "O my people! is then my family of more consideration with you than Allah. For ye cast Him away behind your backs (with contempt). But verily my Lord encompasseth on all sides all that ye do!
11:93. "And O my people! Do whatever ye can: I will do (my part): Soon will ye know who it is on whom descends the penalty of ignominy; and who is a liar! and watch ye! for I too am watching with you!"
11:94. When Our decree issued, We saved Shu'aib and those who believed with him, by (special) mercy from Ourselves: But the (mighty) blast did seize the wrong- doers, and they lay prostrate in their homes by the morning,-
11:95. As if they had never dwelt and flourished there! Ah! Behold! How the Madyan were removed (from sight) as were removed the Thamud!

11:109. Be not then in doubt as to what these men worship. They worship nothing but what their fathers worshipped before (them): but verily We shall pay them back (in full) their portion without (the least) abatement.

12:40. "If not Him, ye worship nothing but names which ye have named,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah hath sent down no authority: the command is for none but Allah. He hath commanded that ye worship none but Him: that is the right religion, but most men understand not...

14:10. Their apostles said: "Is there a doubt about Allah, The Creator of the heavens and the earth? It is He Who invites you, in order that He may forgive you your sins and give you respite for a term appointed!" They said: "Ah! ye are no more than human, like ourselves! Ye wish to turn us away from the (gods) our fathers used to worship: then bring us some clear authority."
14:11. Their apostles said to them: "True, we are human like yourselves, but Allah doth grant His grace to such of his servants as He pleases. It is not for us to bring you an authority except as Allah permits. And on Allah let all men of faith put their trust.
14:12. "No reason have we why we should not put our trust on Allah. Indeed He Has guided us to the Ways we (follow). We shall certainly bear with patience all the hurt you may cause us. For those who put their trust should put their trust on Allah."
14:13. And the Unbelievers said to their apostles: "Be sure we shall drive you out of our land, or ye shall return to our religion." But their Lord inspired (this Message) to them: "Verily We shall cause the wrong-doers to perish!
14:14. "And verily We shall cause you to abide in the land, and succeed them. This for such as fear the Time when they shall stand before My tribunal,- such as fear the punishment denounced."
14:15. But they sought victory and decision (there and then), and frustration was the lot of every powerful obstinate transgressor.
14:16. In front of such a one is Hell, and he is given, for drink, boiling fetid water.
14:17. In gulps will he sip it, but never will he be near swallowing it down his throat: death will come to him from every quarter, yet will he not die: and in front of him will be a chastisement unrelenting.
14:18. The parable of those who reject their Lord is that their works are as ashes, on which the wind blows furiously on a tempestuous day: No power have they over aught that they have earned: that is the straying far, far (from the goal).
14:19. Seest thou not that Allah created the heavens and the earth in Truth? If He so will, He can remove you and put (in your place) a new creation?
14:20. Nor is that for Allah any great matter.

14:30. And they set up (idols) as equal to Allah, to mislead (men) from the Path! Say: "Enjoy (your brief power)! But verily ye are making straightway for Hell!"
14:31. Speak to my servants who have believed, that they may establish regular prayers, and spend (in charity) out of the sustenance we have given them, secretly and openly, before the coming of a Day in which there will be neither mutual bargaining nor befriending.
14:32. It is Allah Who hath created the heavens and the earth and sendeth down rain from the skies, and with it bringeth out fruits wherewith to feed you; it is He Who hath made the ships subject to you, that they may sail through the sea by His command; and the rivers (also) hath He made subject to you.

14:35. Remember Abraham said: "O my Lord! make this city one of peace and security: and preserve me and my sons from worshipping idols.
14:36. "O my Lord! they have indeed led astray many among mankind; He then who follows my (ways) is of me, and he that disobeys me,- but Thou art indeed Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful.

16:35. The worshippers of false gods say: "If Allah had so willed, we should not have worshipped aught but Him - neither we nor our fathers,- nor should we have prescribed prohibitions other than His." So did those who went before them. But what is the mission of apostles but to preach the Clear Message?
16:36. For We assuredly sent amongst every People an apostle, (with the Command), "Serve Allah, and eschew Evil": of the People were some whom Allah guided, and some on whom error became inevitably (established). So travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who denied (the Truth).
16:37. If thou art anxious for their guidance, yet Allah guideth not such as He leaves to stray, and there is none to help them.
16:38. They swear their strongest oaths by Allah, that Allah will not raise up those who die: Nay, but it is a promise (binding) on Him in truth: but most among mankind realise it not.
16:39. (They must be raised up), in order that He may manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ, and that the rejecters of Truth may realise that they had indeed (surrendered to) Falsehood.

18:4. Further, that He may warn those (also) who say, "(Allah) hath begotten a son":
18:5. No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. It is a grievous thing that issues from their mouths as a saying what they say is nothing but falsehood!
18:6. Thou wouldst only, perchance, fret thyself to death, following after them, in grief, if they believe not in this Message.
18:7. That which is on earth we have made but as a glittering show for the earth, in order that We may test them - as to which of them are best in conduct.
18:8. Verily what is on earth we shall make but as dust and dry soil (without growth or herbage).

20:87. They said: "We broke not the promise to thee, as far as lay in our power: but we were made to carry the weight of the ornaments of the (whole) people, and we threw them (into the fire), and that was what the Samiri suggested.
20:88. "Then he brought out (of the fire) before the (people) the image of a calf: It seemed to low: so they said: This is your god, and the god of Moses, but (Moses) has forgotten!"
20:89. Could they not see that it could not return them a word (for answer), and that it had no power either to harm them or to do them good?
20:90. Aaron had already, before this said to them: "O my people! ye are being tested in this: for verily your Lord is ((Allah)) Most Gracious; so follow me and obey my command."
20:91. They had said: "We will not abandon this cult, but we will devote ourselves to it until Moses returns to us."
20:92. (Moses) said: "O Aaron! what kept thee back, when thou sawest them going wrong,
20:93. "From following me? Didst thou then disobey my order?"
20:94. (Aaron) replied: "O son of my mother! Seize (me) not by my beard nor by (the hair of) my head! Truly I feared lest thou shouldst say, 'Thou has caused a division among the children of Israel, and thou didst not respect my word!'"
20:95. (Moses) said: "What then is thy case, O Samiri?"
20:96. He replied: "I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the Messenger, and threw it (into the calf): thus did my soul suggest to me."
20:97. (Moses) said: "Get thee gone! but thy (punishment) in this life will be that thou wilt say, 'touch me not'; and moreover (for a future penalty) thou hast a promise that will not fail: Now look at thy god, of whom thou hast become a devoted worshipper: We will certainly (melt) it in a blazing fire and scatter it broadcast in the sea!"
20:98. But the god of you all is the One Allah. there is no god but He: all things He comprehends in His knowledge.
20:99. Thus do We relate to thee some stories of what happened before: for We have sent thee a Message from Our own Presence.
20:100. If any do turn away therefrom, verily they will bear a burden on the Day of judgment;
20:101. They will abide in this (state): and grievous will the burden be to them on that Day,-
20:102. The Day when the Trumpet will be sounded: that Day, We shall gather the sinful, blear-eyed (with terror).
20:103. In whispers will they consult each other: "Yet tarried not longer than ten (Days);
20:104. We know best what they will say, when their leader most eminent in conduct will say: "Ye tarried not longer than a day!"
20:105. They ask thee concerning the Mountains: say, "My Lord will uproot them and scatter them as dust;
20:106. "He will leave them as plains smooth and level;
20:107. "Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place."
20:108. On that Day will they follow the Caller (straight): no crookedness (can they show) him: all sounds shall humble themselves in the Presence of ((Allah)) Most Gracious: nothing shalt thou hear but the tramp of their feet (as they march).
20:109. On that Day shall no intercession avail except for those for whom permission has been granted by ((Allah)) Most Gracious and whose word is acceptable to Him.
20:110. He knows what (appears to His creatures as) before or after or behind them: but they shall not compass it with their knowledge.
20:111. (All) faces shall be humbled before (Him) - the Living, the Self-Subsisting, Eternal: hopeless indeed will be the man that carries iniquity (on his back).
20:112. But he who works deeds of righteousness, and has faith, will have no fear of harm nor of any curtailment (of what is his due).
20:113. Thus have We sent this down - an arabic Qur'an - and explained therein in detail some of the warnings, in order that they may fear Allah, or that it may cause their remembrance (of Him).
20:114. High above all is Allah, the King, the Truth! Be not in haste with the Qur'an before its revelation to thee is completed, but say, "O my Lord! advance me in knowledge."

21:52. Behold! he said to his father and his people, "What are these images, to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?"
21:53. They said, "We found our fathers worshipping them."
21:54. He said, "Indeed ye have been in manifest error - ye and your fathers."
21:55. They said, "Have you brought us the Truth, or are you one of those who jest?"
21:56. He said, "Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, He Who created them (from nothing): and I am a witness to this (Truth).
21:57. "And by Allah, I have a plan for your idols - after ye go away and turn your backs"..
21:58. So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them, that they might turn (and address themselves) to it.
21:59. They said, "Who has done this to our gods? He must indeed be some man of impiety!"
21:60. They said, "We heard a youth talk of them: He is called Abraham."
21:61. They said, "Then bring him before the eyes of the people, that they may bear witness."
21:62. They said, "Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?"
21:63. He said: "Nay, this was done by - this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!"
21:64. So they turned to themselves and said, "Surely ye are the ones in the wrong!"
21:65. Then were they confounded with shame: (they said), "Thou knowest full well that these (idols) do not speak!"
21:66. (Abraham) said, "Do ye then worship, besides Allah, things that can neither be of any good to you nor do you harm?
21:67. "Fie upon you, and upon the things that ye worship besides Allah. Have ye no sense?"..
21:68. They said, "Burn him and protect your gods, If ye do (anything at all)!"
21:69. We said, "O Fire! be thou cool, and (a means of) safety for Abraham!"
21:70. Then they sought a stratagem against him: but We made them the ones that lost most!
21:71. But We delivered him and (his nephew) Lut (and directed them) to the land which We have blessed for the nations.

22:30. Such (is the Pilgrimage): whoever honours the sacred rites of Allah, for him it is good in the Sight of his Lord. Lawful to you (for food in Pilgrimage) are cattle, except those mentioned to you (as exception): but shun the abomination of idols, and shun the word that is false,-
22:31. Being true in faith to Allah, and never assigning partners to Him: if anyone assigns partners to Allah, is as if he had fallen from heaven and been snatched up by birds, or the wind had swooped (like a bird on its prey) and thrown him into a far- distant place.

23:65. (It will be said): "Groan not in supplication this day: for ye shall certainly not be helped by Us.
23:66. "My Signs used to be rehearsed to you, but ye used to turn back on your heels-
23:67. "In arrogance: talking nonsense about the (Qur'an), like one telling fables by night."
23:68. Do they not ponder over the Word (of Allah., or has anything (new) come to them that did not come to their fathers of old?
23:69. Or do they not recognise their Messenger, that they deny him?
23:70. Or do they say, "He is possessed"? Nay, he has brought them the Truth, but most of them hate the Truth.
23:71. If the Truth had been in accord with their desires, truly the heavens and the earth, and all beings therein would have been in confusion and corruption! Nay, We have sent them their admonition, but they turn away from their admonition.
23:80. It is He Who gives life and death, and to Him (is due) the alternation of Night and Day: will ye not then understand?
23:81. On the contrary they say things similar to what the ancients said.
23:82. They say: "What! when we die and become dust and bones, could we really be raised up again?
23:83. "Such things have been promised to us and to our fathers before! they are nothing but tales of the ancients!"
23:84. Say: "To whom belong the earth and all beings therein? (say) if ye know!"
23:85. They will say, "To Allah." say: "Yet will ye not receive admonition?"
23:86. Say: "Who is the Lord of the seven heavens, and the Lord of the Throne (of Glory) Supreme?"
23:87. They will say, "(They belong) to Allah." Say: "Will ye not then be filled with awe?"
23:88. Say: "Who is it in whose hands is the governance of all things,- who protects (all), but is not protected (of any)? (say) if ye know."
23:89. They will say, "(It belongs) to Allah." Say: "Then how are ye deluded?"
23:90. We have sent them the Truth: but they indeed practise falsehood!

26:70. And rehearse to them (something of) Abraham's story.
26:71. Behold, he said to his father and his people: "What worship ye?"
26:72. They said: "We worship idols, and we remain constantly in attendance on them."
26:73. He said: "Do they listen to you when ye call (on them), or do you good or harm?"
26:74. They said: "Nay, but we found our fathers doing thus (what we do)."
26:75. He said: "Do ye then see whom ye have been worshipping,-
26:76. "Ye and your fathers before you?-
26:77. "For they are enemies to me; not so the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds;
26:78. "Who created me, and it is He Who guides me;
26:79. "Who gives me food and drink,
26:80. "And when I am ill, it is He Who cures me;
26:81. "Who will cause me to die, and then to life (again);
26:82. "And who, I hope, will forgive me my faults on the day of Judgment.
26:83. "O my Lord! bestow wisdom on me, and join me with the righteous;
26:84. "Grant me honourable mention on the tongue of truth among the latest (generations);
26:85. "Make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Bliss;
26:86. "Forgive my father, for that he is among those astray;
26:87. "And let me not be in disgrace on the Day when (men) will be raised up;-
26:88. "The Day whereon neither wealth nor sons will avail,
26:89. "But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart;
26:90. "To the righteous, the Garden will be brought near,
26:91. "And to those straying in Evil, the Fire will be placed in full view;
26:92. "And it shall be said to them: 'Where are the (gods) ye worshipped-
26:93. "'Besides Allah. Can they help you or help themselves?'
26:94. "Then they will be thrown headlong into the (Fire),- they and those straying in Evil,
26:95. "And the whole hosts of Iblis together.
26:96. "They will say there in their mutual bickerings:
26:97. "'By Allah, we were truly in an error manifest,
26:98. "'When we held you as equals with the Lord of the Worlds;
26:99. "'And our seducers were only those who were steeped in guilt.
26:100. "'Now, then, we have none to intercede (for us),
26:101. "'Nor a single friend to feel (for us).
26:102. "'Now if we only had a chance of return we shall truly be of those who believe!'"
26:103. Verily in this is a Sign but most of them do not believe.
26:104. And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.

27:67. The Unbelievers say: "What! when we become dust,- we and our fathers,- shall we really be raised (from the dead)?
27:68. "It is true we were promised this,- we and our fathers before (us): these are nothing but tales of the ancients."
27:69. Say: "Go ye through the earth and see what has been the end of those guilty (of sin)."
27:70. But grieve not over them, nor distress thyself because of their plots.
27:71. They also say: "When will this promise (come to pass)? (Say) if ye are truthful."
27:72. Say: "It may be that some of the events which ye wish to hasten on may be (close) in your pursuit!"
27:73. But verily thy Lord is full of grace to mankind: Yet most of them are ungrateful.
27:74. And verily thy Lord knoweth all that their hearts do hide. As well as all that they reveal.
27:75. Nor is there aught of the unseen, in heaven or earth, but is (recorded) in a clear record.

29:17. "For ye do worship idols besides Allah, and ye invent falsehood. The things that ye worship besides Allah have no power to give you sustenance: then seek ye sustenance from Allah, serve Him, and be grateful to Him: to Him will be your return.
29:18. "And if ye reject (the Message), so did generations before you: and the duty of the apostle is only to preach publicly (and clearly)."
29:19. See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.
29:20. Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.
29:21. "He punishes whom He pleases, and He grants Mercy to whom He pleases, and towards Him are ye turned.
29:22. "Not on earth nor in heaven will ye be able (fleeing) to frustrate (his Plan), nor have ye, besides Allah, any protector or helper."
29:23. Those who reject the Signs of Allah and the Meeting with Him (in the Hereafter),- it is they who shall despair of My Mercy: it is they who will (suffer) a most grievous Penalty.
29:24. So naught was the answer of (Abraham's) people except that they said: "Slay him or burn him." But Allah did save him from the Fire. Verily in this are Signs for people who believe.
29:25. And he said: "For you, ye have taken (for worship) idols besides Allah, out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life; but on the Day of Judgment ye shall disown each other and curse each other: and your abode will be the Fire, and ye shall have none to help."

31:21. When they are told to follow the (Revelation) that Allah has sent down, they say: "Nay, we shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following). "What! even if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire?
31:22. Whoever submits his whole self to Allah, and is a doer of good, has grasped indeed the most trustworthy hand-hold: and with Allah rests the End and Decision of (all) affairs.
31:23. But if any reject Faith, let not his rejection grieve thee: to Us is their return, and We shall tell them the truth of their deeds: for Allah knows well all that is in (men's) hearts.
31:24. We grant them their pleasure for a little while: in the end shall We drive them to a chastisement unrelenting.

34:43. When Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them, they say, "This is only a man who wishes to hinder you from the (worship) which your fathers practised." And they say, "This is only a falsehood invented!" and the Unbelievers say of the Truth when it comes to them, "This is nothing but evident magic!"
34:44. But We had not given them Books which they could study, nor sent apostles to them before thee as Warners.
34:45. And their predecessors rejected (the Truth); these have not received a tenth of what We had granted to those: yet when they rejected My apostles, how (terrible) was My rejection (of them)!

37:16. "What! when we die, and become dust and bones, shall we (then) be raised up (again)
37:17. "And also our fathers of old?"
37:18. Say thou: "Yea, and ye shall then be humiliated (on account of your evil)."
37:19. Then it will be a single (compelling) cry; and behold, they will begin to see!
37:20. They will say, "Ah! Woe to us! This is the Day of Judgment!"
37:21. (A voice will say,) "This is the Day of Sorting Out, whose truth ye (once) denied!"
37:22. "Bring ye up", it shall be said, "The wrong-doers and their wives, and the things they worshipped-
37:23. "Besides Allah, and lead them to the Way to the (Fierce) Fire!
37:24. "But stop them, for they must be asked:
37:25. "'What is the matter with you that ye help not each other?'"
37:26. Nay, but that day they shall submit (to Judgment);
37:27. And they will turn to one another, and question one another.
37:28. They will say: "It was ye who used to come to us from the right hand (of power and authority)!"
37:29. They will reply: "Nay, ye yourselves had no Faith!
37:30. "Nor had we any authority over you. Nay, it was ye who were a people in obstinate rebellion!
37:31. "So now has been proved true, against us, the word of our Lord that we shall indeed (have to) taste (the punishment of our sins).
37:32. "We led you astray: for truly we were ourselves astray."
37:33. Truly, that Day, they will (all) share in the Penalty.
37:34. Verily that is how We shall deal with Sinners.
37:35. For they, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, would puff themselves up with Pride,
37:36. And say: "What! shall we give up our gods for the sake of a Poet possessed?"
37:37. Nay! he has come with the (very) Truth, and he confirms (the Message of) the apostles (before him).
37:38. Ye shall indeed taste of the Grievous Penalty;-
37:39. But it will be no more than the retribution of (the Evil) that ye have wrought;-
37:69. Truly they found their fathers on the wrong Path;
37:70. So they (too) were rushed down on their footsteps!
37:71. And truly before them, many of the ancients went astray;-
37:72. But We sent aforetime, among them, (apostles) to admonish them;-
37:73. Then see what was the end of those who were admonished (but heeded not),-
37:74. Except the sincere (and devoted) Servants of Allah.

37:125. "Will ye call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators,-
37:126. "(Allah), your Lord and Cherisher and the Lord and Cherisher of your fathers of old?"
37:127. But they rejected him, and they will certainly be called up (for punishment),-
37:128. Except the sincere and devoted Servants of Allah (among them).

43:19. And they make into females angels who themselves serve Allah. Did they witness their creation? Their evidence will be recorded, and they will be called to account!
43:20. ("Ah!") they say, "If it had been the will of ((Allah)) Most Gracious, we should not have worshipped such (deities)!" Of that they have no knowledge! they do nothing but lie!
43:21. What! have We given them a Book before this, to which they are holding fast?
43:22. Nay! they say: "We found our fathers following a certain religion, and we do guide ourselves by their footsteps."
43:23. Just in the same way, whenever We sent a Warner before thee to any people, the wealthy ones among them said: "We found our fathers following a certain religion, and we will certainly follow in their footsteps."
43:24. He said: "What! Even if I brought you better guidance than that which ye found your fathers following?" They said: "For us, we deny that ye (prophets) are sent (on a mission at all)."
43:25. So We exacted retribution from them: now see what was the end of those who rejected (Truth)!
43:26. Behold! Abraham said to his father and his people: "I do indeed clear myself of what ye worship:
43:27. "(I worship) only Him Who made me, and He will certainly guide me."
43:28. And he left it as a Word to endure among those who came after him, that they may turn back (to Allah..

44:34. As to these (Quraish), they say forsooth:
44:35. "There is nothing beyond our first death, and we shall not be raised again.
44:36. "Then bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"
44:37. What! Are they better than the people of Tubba and those who were before them? We destroyed them because they were guilty of sin.

45:25. And when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them their argument is nothing but this: They say, "Bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"
45:26. Say: "It is Allah Who gives you life, then gives you death; then He will gather you together for the Day of Judgment about which there is no doubt": But most men do not understand.
45:27. To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and the Day that the Hour of Judgment is established,- that Day will the dealers in Falsehood perish!
45:28. And thou wilt see every sect bowing the knee: Every sect will be called to its Record: "This Day shall ye be recompensed for all that ye did!

53:19. Have ye seen Lat. and 'Uzza,
53:20. And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
53:21. What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female?
53:22. Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair!
53:23. These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord!
53:24. Nay, shall man have (just) anything he hankers after?
53:25. But it is to Allah that the End and the Beginning (of all things) belong.

56:47. And they used to say, "What! when we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be raised up again?-
56:48. "(We) and our fathers of old?"
56:49. Say: "Yea, those of old and those of later times,
56:50. "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known.
56:51. "Then will ye truly,- O ye that go wrong, and treat (Truth) as Falsehood!-
56:52. "Ye will surely taste of the Tree of Zaqqum.
56:53. "Then will ye fill your insides therewith,
56:54. "And drink Boiling Water on top of it:
56:55. "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst!"
56:56. Such will be their entertainment on the Day of Requital!
56:57. It is We Who have created you: why will ye not witness the Truth?
56:58. Do ye then see?- The (human Seed) that ye throw out,-
56:59. Is it ye who create it, or are We the Creators?
56:60. We have decreed Death to be your common lot, and We are not to be frustrated
56:61. from changing your Forms and creating you (again) in (forms) that ye know not.
56:62. And ye certainly know already the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His praises?
56:63. See ye the seed that ye sow in the ground?
56:64. Is it ye that cause it to grow, or are We the Cause?
56:65. Were it Our Will, We could crumble it to dry powder, and ye would be left in wonderment,
56:66. (Saying), "We are indeed left with debts (for nothing):

Surah 75. The Rising Of The Dead, Resurrection

1. I do call to witness the Resurrection Day;
2. And I do call to witness the self-reproaching spirit: (Eschew Evil).
3. Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?
4. Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his FINGERs.
5. But man wishes to do wrong (even) in the time in front of him.
6. He questions: "When is the Day of Resurrection?"
7. At length, when the sight is dazed,
8. And the moon is buried in darkness.
9. And the sun and moon are joined together,-
10. That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"
11. By no means! No place of safety!
12. Before thy Lord (alone), that Day will be the place of rest.
13. That Day will Man be told (all) that he put forward, and all that he put back.
14. Nay, man will be evidence against himself,
15. Even though he were to put up his excuses.
16. Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an) to make haste therewith.
17. It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it:
18. But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated):
19. Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (and make it clear):
20. Nay, (ye men!) but ye love the fleeting life,
21. And leave alone the Hereafter.
22. Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);-
23. Looking towards their Lord;
24. And some faces, that Day, will be sad and dismal,
25. In the thought that some back-breaking calamity was about to be inflicted on them;
26. Yea, when (the soul) reaches to the collar-bone (in its exit),
27. And there will be a cry, "Who is a magician (to restore him)?"
28. And he will conclude that it was (the Time) of Parting;
29. And one leg will be joined with another:
30. That Day the Drive will be (all) to thy Lord!
31. So he gave nothing in charity, nor did he pray!-
32. But on the contrary, he rejected Truth and turned away!
33. Then did he stalk to his family in full conceit!
34. Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
35. Again, Woe to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!
36. Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?
37. Was he not a drop of sperm emitted (in lowly form)?
38. Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did ((Allah)) make and fashion (him) in due proportion.
39. And of him He made two sexes, male and female.
40. Has not He, (the same), the power to give life to the dead?
