NAY, I call to witness the coming-down in parts [of this Qur'an]*
And those who were lost in sin will behold the fire, and will know that they are bound to fall into it, and will find no way of escape therefrom.
there will be nought that could give the lie to its having come to pass,
By means of intoxicants and games of chance Satan seeks only to sow enmity and hatred among you, and to turn you away from the remembrance of God and from prayer. Will you not, then, desist?'*
WHEN THAT which must come to pass* [at last] comes to pass,


And so, that which must come to pass* will on that day have come to pass;



And [did We not say,] when We caused Mount Sinai to quake above the children of Israel* as though it were a [mere] shadow, and they thought that it would fall upon them, "Hold fast with [all your] strength unto what We have vouchsafed you, and bear in mind all that is therein, so that you might remain conscious of God"?*
[In that life to come,] thou wilt see the evil­doers full of fear at [the thought of] what they have earned: for [now] it is bound to fall back upon them. And in the flowering meadows of the gardens [of paradise thou wilt see] those who have attained to faith and done righteous deeds: all that they might desire shall they have with their Sustainer: [and] this, this is the great bounty -
and, verily, judgment is bound to come!


VERILY, [O man,] the suffering decreed by thy Sustainer [for the sinners] will indeed come to pass:


ONE who is minded to ask might ask* about the suffering which [in the hereafter] is bound to befall


BEHOLD, all that you are told to expect* will surely come to pass.



And he who forsakes the domain of evil for the sake of God shall find on earth many a lonely road,* as well as life abundant. And if anyone leaves his home, fleeing from evil unto God and His Apostle, and then death overtakes him - his reward is ready with God: for God iss indeed much-forgiving, a dis­penser of grace.
Said [Hud]: "You are already beset by loath some evils* and by your Sustainer's condemnation! Do you argue with me about the [empty] names which you have invented* - you and your forefathers - for which God has bestowed no warrant from on high? Wait, then, [for what will happen:] verily, I shall wait with you!"*
whereupon the truth was established, and vain was proved all that they had been doing.
And whenever a plague struck them, they would cry: "O Moses, pray for us to thy Sustainer on the strength of the covenant [of prophethood] which He has made with thee! If thou remove this plague from us, we will truly believe in thee. and will let the children of Israel go with thee!"
Will you, then, believe in it [only] after it has come to pass -[on the Day when you will be asked, `Do you believe in it] now,* after having [contemptuously] called for its speedy advent?'
and when I have formed him fully and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down before him in prostration!*
Art thou not aware that it is God who has made subservient to you all that is on earth,* and the ships that sail through the sea at His behest - and [that it is He who] holds the celestial bodies* [in their orbits], so that they may not fall upon the earth otherwise than by His leave?* Verily, God is most compassionate towards men, a dispenser of grace –
Now, [as for the deaf and blind of heart –] when the word [of truth] stands revealed against them,* We shall bring forth unto them out of the earth a creature, which will tell them that mankind had no real faith in Our messages.*
And the word [of truth] will stand revealed against them in the face of* all the wrong which they had committed, and they will not [be able to] utter a single word [of excuse]:
and when I have formed him fully and breathed into him of My spirit, fall you down before him in prostration!"*
WHEN THAT which must come to pass* [at last] comes to pass,
And so, that which must come to pass* will on that day have come to pass;
