19b. Maryam (51 to 98)
And make mention in the Scripture of Moses . Lo! he was
chosen , and he was a messenger ( of Allah ) , a Prophet ….
And make mention in the Scripture of Moses . Lo! he was chosen , and he was a messenger ( of Allah ) , a Prophet .
We called him from the right slope of the Mount , and brought him nigh in communion .
And We bestowed upon him of Our mercy his brother Aaron , a Prophet ( likewise ) .
And make mention in the Scripture of Ishmael . Lo! he was a keeper of his promise , and he was a messenger ( of Allah ) a Prophet .
He enjoined upon his people worship and alms giving , and was acceptable in the sight of his Lord .
And make mention in the Scripture of Idris . Lo! he was a saint , a Prophet ;
And We raised him to high station .
These are they unto whom Allah showed favor from among the Prophets , of the seed of Adam and of those whom We carried ( in the ship ) with Noah , and of the seed of Abraham and Israel , and from among those whom We guided and chose . When the revelations of the Beneficent were recited unto them , they fell down , adoring and weeping .
Now there hath succeeded them a later generation who have ruined worship and have followed lusts . But they will meet deception .
Save him who shall repent and believe and do right Such will enter the Garden and they will not be wronged in aught .
Gardens of Eden , which the Beneficent hath , promised to His slaves in the Unseen . Lo! His promise is ever sure of fulfillment .
They hear therein no idle talk , but only Peace ; and therein they have food for morn and evening .
Such is the Garden which We cause the devout among Our bondmen to inherit .
We ( angels ) come not down save by commandment of thy Lord . Unto Him belongeth all that is before us and all that is behind us and all that is between those two , and thy Lord was never forgetful
Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them! Therefor , worship thou Him and be thou steadfast in His service . Knowest thou one that can be named along with Him?
And man saith : When I am dead , shall I forsooth be brought forth alive?
Doth not man remember that We created him before , when he was naught?
And , by thy Lord , verily We shall assemble them and the devils , then We shall bring them , crouching , around hell .
Then We shall pluck out from every sect whichever of them was most stern in rebellion to the Beneficent .
And surely We are best aware of those most worthy to be burned therein .
There is not one of you but shall approach it . That is a fixed ordinance of thy Lord .
Then We shall rescue those who kept from evil , and leave the evil doers crouching there .
And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them those who disbelieve say Unto those who believe : Which of the two parties ( yours or ours ) is better in position , and more imposing as an army?
How many a generation have We destroyed before them , who were more imposing in respect of gear and outward seeming!
Say : As for him who is in error , the Beneficent will verily prolong his span of life until , when they behold that which they were promised , whether it be punishment ( in the world ) , or Hour ( of Doom ) , they will know who is worse in position and who is weaker as , an army .
Allah increaseth in right guidance those who walk aright , and the good deeds which endure are better in thy Lord ' s sight for reward , and better for resort .
Hast thou seen him who disbelieveth in Our revelations and saith : Assuredly I shall be given wealth and children!
Hath he perused the Unseen , or hath he made a pact with the Beneficent?
Nay , but We shall record that which he saith and prolong for him a span of torment .
And We shall inherit from him that whereof he spake , and he will come unto Us , alone ( without his wealth and children ) .
And they have chosen ( other ) gods beside Allah that they may be a power for them .
Nay , but they will deny their worship of them , and become opponents unto them .
Seest thou not that We have set the devils on the disbelievers to confound them with confusion?
So make no haste against them ( O Muhammad ) . We do but number unto them a sum ( of days ) .
On the Day when We shall gather the righteous unto the Beneficent , a goodly company .
And drive the guilty unto Hell , a weary herd ,
They will have no power of intercession , save him who hath made a covenant with his Lord
And they say : The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son .
Assuredly ye Utter a disastrous thing ,
Whereby almost the heavens are torn , and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins ,
That ye ascribe unto the Beneficent a son ,
When it is not meet for ( the Majesty of ) the Beneficent that He should choose a son .
There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave .
Verily He knoweth them and numbereth them with ( right ) numbering .
And each one of them will come unto Him on the Day of Resurrection , alone .
Lo! those who believe and do good works , the Beneficent will appoint for them love .
And We make ( this Scripture ) easy in thy tongue , ( O Muhammad ) only that thou mayst bear good tidings therewith unto those who ward off ( evil ) , and warn therewith the froward folk .
And how many a generation before them have We destroyed! Canst thou ( Muhammad ) see a single man of them , or hear from them the slightest sound?
