11c. Hud (101 to 123)
We wronged them not , but they did wrong themselves ;
and their gods on whom they call beside Allah availed them …
We wronged them not , but they did wrong themselves ; and their gods on whom they call beside Allah availed them naught then came thy Lords command ; they added to them naught save ruin .
Even thus is the grasp of thy Lord when he graspeth the townships while they are doing wrong . Lo! His grasp is painful , very strong .
Lo! herein verily there is a portent for those who fear the doom of the Hereafter . That is a day unto which mankind will be gathered , and that is a day that will be witnessed .
And We defer it only as a term already reckoned .
On the day when it cometh no soul will sneak except by His permission ; some among them will be wretched , ( others ) glad .
As for those who will be wretched ( on that day ) they will be in the Fire ; sighing and wailing will be their portion therein .
Abiding there so long as the heavens and the earth endure save for that which thy Lord willeth . Lo! thy Lord is Doer of what He will .
And as for those who will be glad ( that day ) they will be in the Garden , abiding there so long as the heavens and the earth endure save for that which thy Lord willeth : a gift unfailing .
So be not thou in doubt concerning that which these ( folk ) worship . They worship only as their fathers worshipped aforetime . Lo! We shall pay them their whole due unabated .
And We verily gave unto Moses the Scripture , and there was strife thereupon ; and had it not been for a Word that had already gone forth from thy Lord , the case would have been judged between them , and Lo! they are in grave doubt concerning it .
And lo! unto each thy Lord will verily repay his works in full . Lo! He is Informed of what they do .
So tread thou the straight path as thou art commanded , and those who turn ( unto Allah ) with thee , and transgress not . Lo! He is Seer of what ye do .
And incline not toward those who do wrong lest the Fire touch you , and ye have no protecting friends against Allah , and afterward ye would not be helped .
Establish worship at the two ends of the day and in some watches of the night . Lo! good deeds annul ill deeds . This is a reminder for the mindful .
And have patience , ( O Muhammad ) , for lo! Allah loseth not the wages of the good .
If only there had been among the generations before you men possessing a remnant ( of good sense ) to warn ( their people ) from corruption in the earth , as did a few of those whom We saved from them! The wrong doers followed that by which they were made sapless , and were guilty .
In truth thy Lord destroyed not the townships tyrannously while their folk were doing right .
And if thy Lord had willed , He verily would have made mankind one nation , yet they cease not differing ,
Save him on whom thy Lord hath mercy ; and for that He did create them . And the Word of thy Lord hath been fulfilled : Verily I shall fill hell with the jinn and mankind together .
And all that We relate unto thee of the story of the messengers is in order that thereby We may make firm thy heart . And herein hath come unto thee the Truth and an exhortation and a reminder for believers .
And say unto those who believe not : Act according to your power . Lo! we ( too ) are acting .
And wait! Lo! we ( too ) are waiting .
And Allah ' s is the Invisible of the heavens and the earth , and unto Him the whole matter will be returned . So worship Him and put thy trust in Him . Lo! thy Lord is not unaware of what ye ( mortals ) do .
