بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
نَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡكَ مِن نَّبَإِ مُوسَىٰ وَفِرۡعَوۡنَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ لِقَوۡمٖ يُؤۡمِنُونَ3 3
(Here) We describe to you part of the true story of Musa ( ) and Firaun for (the benefit of) the people who believe (in the Quran).
إِنَّ فِرۡعَوۡنَ عَلَا فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعٗا يَسۡتَضۡعِفُ طَآئِفَةٗ مِّنۡهُمۡ يُذَبِّحُ أَبۡنَآءَهُمۡ وَيَسۡتَحۡيِۦ نِسَآءَهُمۡۚ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ4 4
Indeed, Firaun was extremely arrogant in the land and he had divided his people into many groups. He was very oppressive to one of those groups by kill-ing their sons and letting their females survive. Indeed, he was one of the tyrants.
وَنُرِيدُ أَن نَّمُنَّ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ ٱسۡتُضۡعِفُواْ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَنَجۡعَلَهُمۡ أَئِمَّةٗ وَنَجۡعَلَهُمُ ٱلۡوَٰرِثِينَ5 5
And We wished to do a favour to those who were oppressed in the land (i.e. Egypt) and We make them (religious) leaders and inheritors (of land).
وَنُمَكِّنَ لَهُمۡ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَنُرِيَ فِرۡعَوۡنَ وَهَٰمَٰنَ وَجُنُودَهُمَا مِنۡهُم مَّا كَانُواْ يَحۡذَرُونَ6 6
And that We give them authority and power in the land and We showed Firaun and Hamaan and their army the (unpleasant event) which they feared (i.e. Children of Israel may overpower Firaun).
وَأَوۡحَيۡنَآ إِلَىٰٓ أُمِّ مُوسَىٰٓ أَنۡ أَرۡضِعِيهِۖ فَإِذَا خِفۡتِ عَلَيۡهِ فَأَلۡقِيهِ فِي ٱلۡيَمِّ وَلَا تَخَافِي وَلَا تَحۡزَنِيٓۖ إِنَّا رَآدُّوهُ إِلَيۡكِ وَجَاعِلُوهُ مِنَ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِينَ7 7
And We inspired the mother of Musa ( ) (stating): “Suckle Musa ( ) , so when you fear for him (from the secret service personnel), then put him in the river (Nile) and don’t fear nor grieve. Indeed, We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) mes-sengers.”
فَٱلۡتَقَطَهُۥٓ ءَالُ فِرۡعَوۡنَ لِيَكُونَ لَهُمۡ عَدُوّٗا وَحَزَنًاۗ إِنَّ فِرۡعَوۡنَ وَهَٰمَٰنَ وَجُنُودَهُمَا كَانُواْ خَٰطِِٔينَ8 8
Then the family of Firaun picked him up so that he might become an enemy for them and also cause them grief (in the future). Indeed, Firaun, Hamaan and their army were sinners (so Allah destroyed them by this child).
وَقَالَتِ ٱمۡرَأَتُ فِرۡعَوۡنَ قُرَّتُ عَيۡنٖ لِّي وَلَكَۖ لَا تَقۡتُلُوهُ عَسَىٰٓ أَن يَنفَعَنَآ أَوۡ نَتَّخِذَهُۥ وَلَدٗا وَهُمۡ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ9 9
And the wife of Firaun (Hazrat Asia) said: “(This child) is the comfort of my eyes and yours too (i.e. we will be pleased to look at this lovely child). Don’t kill him. He may benefit us or we may adopt him as a son. And they were not aware of it (that they had killed several hundred innocent children to kill this very child).
وَأَصۡبَحَ فُؤَادُ أُمِّ مُوسَىٰ فَٰرِغًاۖ إِن كَادَتۡ لَتُبۡدِي بِهِۦ لَوۡلَآ أَن رَّبَطۡنَا عَلَىٰ قَلۡبِهَا لِتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ10 10
And the heart of the mother of Musa ( ) became impa-tient and she was about to reveal the story [of Musa ( ) ], had We not strengthened her heart (with Faith) so that she might remain as one of the believers (that the child will be returned to her).
وَقَالَتۡ لِأُخۡتِهِۦ قُصِّيهِۖ فَبَصُرَتۡ بِهِۦ عَن جُنُبٖ وَهُمۡ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ11 11
And the mother of Musa ( ) told Musa’s ( peace be up-on him ) sister to follow him. So she saw Musa ( ) from the distance (secretly) and they were not aware of it.
۞وَحَرَّمۡنَا عَلَيۡهِ ٱلۡمَرَاضِعَ مِن قَبۡلُ فَقَالَتۡ هَلۡ أَدُلُّكُمۡ عَلَىٰٓ أَهۡلِ بَيۡتٖ يَكۡفُلُونَهُۥ لَكُمۡ وَهُمۡ لَهُۥ نَٰصِحُونَ12 12
And We had already forbidden the milk of (other) suckling mothers for Musa ( ) until she (Musa’s sister) said: “Would you like that I point out to you a household which will bring up the child for you and look after him nicely?”
فَرَدَدۡنَٰهُ إِلَىٰٓ أُمِّهِۦ كَيۡ تَقَرَّ عَيۡنُهَا وَلَا تَحۡزَنَ وَلِتَعۡلَمَ أَنَّ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقّٞ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ13 13
Hence, We returned Musa ( ) to his mother to comfort her eyes, and that she might not grieve, and that she might know that the Promise of Allah is true. But most of them don’t know.
وَلَمَّا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُۥ وَٱسۡتَوَىٰٓ ءَاتَيۡنَٰهُ حُكۡمٗا وَعِلۡمٗاۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ نَجۡزِي ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ14 14
And when Musa ( ) attained his youth and full strength, We granted him wisdom (Prophethood) and (religious) knowledge. And thus We reward the good-doers.
وَدَخَلَ ٱلۡمَدِينَةَ عَلَىٰ حِينِ غَفۡلَةٖ مِّنۡ أَهۡلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيهَا رَجُلَيۡنِ يَقۡتَتِلَانِ هَٰذَا مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ وَهَٰذَا مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦۖ فَٱسۡتَغَٰثَهُ ٱلَّذِي مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ عَلَى ٱلَّذِي مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦ فَوَكَزَهُۥ مُوسَىٰ فَقَضَىٰ عَلَيۡهِۖ قَالَ هَٰذَا مِنۡ عَمَلِ ٱلشَّيۡطَٰنِۖ إِنَّهُۥ عَدُوّٞ مُّضِلّٞ مُّبِينٞ15 15
And Musa ( ) entered the city when most of the people were unaware of it (since they were resting). He found two men fighting there – one was from his group (i.e. from the Children of Israel) and the other from his foes. The one from his group called Musa ( ) for help against his foe, so Musa ( ) hit him with his fist which killed him (accidentally). (Musa ( ) felt sorry within and said to himself): “This is from Satan’s doing. Indeed, Satan is an obvious misleading enemy.”
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي ظَلَمۡتُ نَفۡسِي فَٱغۡفِرۡ لِي فَغَفَرَ لَهُۥٓۚ إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلۡغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ16 16
(Musa ( ) repented and) said: “My Creator, indeed, I have wronged myself, so forgive me (please).” Then Allah forgave him. Indeed, Allah is Very-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
قَالَ رَبِّ بِمَآ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَيَّ فَلَنۡ أَكُونَ ظَهِيرٗا لِّلۡمُجۡرِمِينَ17 17
(Musa ( ) also) said: “My Creator! Since you have done a favour to me, so I shall never help the criminals (in future).
فَأَصۡبَحَ فِي ٱلۡمَدِينَةِ خَآئِفٗا يَتَرَقَّبُ فَإِذَا ٱلَّذِي ٱسۡتَنصَرَهُۥ بِٱلۡأَمۡسِ يَسۡتَصۡرِخُهُۥۚ قَالَ لَهُۥ مُوسَىٰٓ إِنَّكَ لَغَوِيّٞ مُّبِينٞ18 18
So in the morning, Musa ( ) went to the city very frightened and with great vigilance (to see the results of his crime). Surprisingly the same person who called for his help yesterday, called Musa ( ) (for help again). Musa ( ) said to him: “You are clearly a misled person.”
فَلَمَّآ أَنۡ أَرَادَ أَن يَبۡطِشَ بِٱلَّذِي هُوَ عَدُوّٞ لَّهُمَا قَالَ يَٰمُوسَىٰٓ أَتُرِيدُ أَن تَقۡتُلَنِي كَمَا قَتَلۡتَ نَفۡسَۢا بِٱلۡأَمۡسِۖ إِن تُرِيدُ إِلَّآ أَن تَكُونَ جَبَّارٗا فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَمَا تُرِيدُ أَن تَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُصۡلِحِينَ19 19
Then when Musa ( ) stretched his hand to seize the (Firaun’s) man who was an enemy to both of them, the caller [from Musa’s ( ) group] said: “Do you intend to kill me as you killed a man yesterday? [Since this quarrelsome person from Musa’s ( ) group felt that Musa ( ) will kill him for fighting with others repeatedly]. You intend to be a tyrant in the land and not the one of those who reform (people).”
وَجَآءَ رَجُلٞ مِّنۡ أَقۡصَا ٱلۡمَدِينَةِ يَسۡعَىٰ قَالَ يَٰمُوسَىٰٓ إِنَّ ٱلۡمَلَأَ يَأۡتَمِرُونَ بِكَ لِيَقۡتُلُوكَ فَٱخۡرُجۡ إِنِّي لَكَ مِنَ ٱلنَّٰصِحِينَ20 20
[The man from Firaun’s group heard this information and conveyed it to Firaun. Firaun decided to kill Musa ( ) for his crime.] And a man came running, from the end of the city, he said: “Indeed, the chiefs are consulting mutually regarding you, to kill you, so get away from here. Truly, I am one of your well-wishers.”
فَخَرَجَ مِنۡهَا خَآئِفٗا يَتَرَقَّبُۖ قَالَ رَبِّ نَجِّنِي مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ21 21
So Musa ( ) escaped from there terrified and with great cau-tion. Musa ( ) said: “My Creator! Save me from the people who are wrong-doers (and lead me to a peaceful place).”
وَلَمَّا تَوَجَّهَ تِلۡقَآءَ مَدۡيَنَ قَالَ عَسَىٰ رَبِّيٓ أَن يَهۡدِيَنِي سَوَآءَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ22 22
And when Musa ( ) went towards Madyan, he said: “I hope that my Creator will guide me to a Right Path (which leads to a peaceful place).”
وَلَمَّا وَرَدَ مَآءَ مَدۡيَنَ وَجَدَ عَلَيۡهِ أُمَّةٗ مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِ يَسۡقُونَ وَوَجَدَ مِن دُونِهِمُ ٱمۡرَأَتَيۡنِ تَذُودَانِۖ قَالَ مَا خَطۡبُكُمَاۖ قَالَتَا لَا نَسۡقِي حَتَّىٰ يُصۡدِرَ ٱلرِّعَآءُۖ وَأَبُونَا شَيۡخٞ كَبِيرٞ23 23
And when he arrived at the water (the well) of Madyan, he noticed that a group of men let their cattle drink water from the well. And Musa ( ) also noticed that two ladies were holding back (their cattle). Musa ( ) said to them: “What is the matter with you?” They said: “We cannot let our cattle drink water until the shepherds drive away (their cat-tle), and our father is a very old man.”
فَسَقَىٰ لَهُمَا ثُمَّ تَوَلَّىٰٓ إِلَى ٱلظِّلِّ فَقَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي لِمَآ أَنزَلۡتَ إِلَيَّ مِنۡ خَيۡرٖ فَقِيرٞ24 24
So Musa ( ) helped their cattle to drink water. Then Musa ( ) retreated to a shade (of a tree) and said: “My Crea-tor! Indeed, I am badly in need of whatever favour you bestow upon me!”
فَجَآءَتۡهُ إِحۡدَىٰهُمَا تَمۡشِي عَلَى ٱسۡتِحۡيَآءٖ قَالَتۡ إِنَّ أَبِي يَدۡعُوكَ لِيَجۡزِيَكَ أَجۡرَ مَا سَقَيۡتَ لَنَاۚ فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُۥ وَقَصَّ عَلَيۡهِ ٱلۡقَصَصَ قَالَ لَا تَخَفۡۖ نَجَوۡتَ مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ25 25
Then one of the two ladies came to him walking bashfully. She said: “In-deed, my father is calling to reward you for your help (to let our cattle) drink water.” So when Musa ( ) reached him and narrated to him the story, he said: “Don’t fear. You have escaped from the people who are wrong-doers.”
قَالَتۡ إِحۡدَىٰهُمَا يَٰٓأَبَتِ ٱسۡتَٔۡجِرۡهُۖ إِنَّ خَيۡرَ مَنِ ٱسۡتَٔۡجَرۡتَ ٱلۡقَوِيُّ ٱلۡأَمِينُ26 26
And one of the two ladies said: “O my father! Hire him. Indeed, the best (of men) for you to hire is the strong and (simultaneously) the trustworthy one,”
قَالَ إِنِّيٓ أُرِيدُ أَنۡ أُنكِحَكَ إِحۡدَى ٱبۡنَتَيَّ هَٰتَيۡنِ عَلَىٰٓ أَن تَأۡجُرَنِي ثَمَٰنِيَ حِجَجٖۖ فَإِنۡ أَتۡمَمۡتَ عَشۡرٗا فَمِنۡ عِندِكَۖ وَمَآ أُرِيدُ أَنۡ أَشُقَّ عَلَيۡكَۚ سَتَجِدُنِيٓ إِن شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰلِحِينَ27 27
He said [to Musa ( ) ]: “I intend to marry one of my two daughters to you provided that you serve me for eight years, but if you complete ten years, so it will be a favour from you. I, however, do not intend to cause you any hardship (regarding its timing). If Allah wills, you will find me very nice to work with.”
قَالَ ذَٰلِكَ بَيۡنِي وَبَيۡنَكَۖ أَيَّمَا ٱلۡأَجَلَيۡنِ قَضَيۡتُ فَلَا عُدۡوَٰنَ عَلَيَّۖ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مَا نَقُولُ وَكِيلٞ28 28
[Musa ( ) ] said: “That is agreed between me and you. It will be up to me to complete whichever term I can. So there will be no pressure put on me. And Allah is Guardian (and witness) over what we say.”
۞فَلَمَّا قَضَىٰ مُوسَى ٱلۡأَجَلَ وَسَارَ بِأَهۡلِهِۦٓ ءَانَسَ مِن جَانِبِ ٱلطُّورِ نَارٗاۖ قَالَ لِأَهۡلِهِ ٱمۡكُثُوٓاْ إِنِّيٓ ءَانَسۡتُ نَارٗا لَّعَلِّيٓ ءَاتِيكُم مِّنۡهَا بِخَبَرٍ أَوۡ جَذۡوَةٖ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ لَعَلَّكُمۡ تَصۡطَلُونَ29 29
So when Musa ( ) had completed the term, and was travelling with his family, he saw a fire (which was actually a light) in the direc-tion of (mountain) Tur. He said to his family: “Wait here, I have seen a fire. I may bring some information from there or a burning fire-brand for you so that you may warm yourselves.”
فَلَمَّآ أَتَىٰهَا نُودِيَ مِن شَٰطِيِٕ ٱلۡوَادِ ٱلۡأَيۡمَنِ فِي ٱلۡبُقۡعَةِ ٱلۡمُبَٰرَكَةِ مِنَ ٱلشَّجَرَةِ أَن يَٰمُوسَىٰٓ إِنِّيٓ أَنَا ٱللَّهُ رَبُّ ٱلۡعَٰلَمِينَ30 30
So when Musa ( ) reached near it (the fire), he was called from the right side of the valley from a tree, in this blessed ground: “O Musa ( ) ! Indeed, I am Allah, the Creator of the universe!
وَأَنۡ أَلۡقِ عَصَاكَۚ فَلَمَّا رَءَاهَا تَهۡتَزُّ كَأَنَّهَا جَآنّٞ وَلَّىٰ مُدۡبِرٗا وَلَمۡ يُعَقِّبۡۚ يَٰمُوسَىٰٓ أَقۡبِلۡ وَلَا تَخَفۡۖ إِنَّكَ مِنَ ٱلۡأٓمِنِينَ31 31
“And throw your stick!” So when he saw it moving as if it were a snake, he ran backward and did not even care to look back. (It was said): “O Musa ( ) ! Come forward, and don’t fear. Indeed, you are from those who are fully secure. (In fact it is a miracle for you, and here is another miracle).
ٱسۡلُكۡ يَدَكَ فِي جَيۡبِكَ تَخۡرُجۡ بَيۡضَآءَ مِنۡ غَيۡرِ سُوٓءٖ وَٱضۡمُمۡ إِلَيۡكَ جَنَاحَكَ مِنَ ٱلرَّهۡبِۖ فَذَٰنِكَ بُرۡهَٰنَانِ مِن رَّبِّكَ إِلَىٰ فِرۡعَوۡنَ وَمَلَإِيْهِۦٓۚ إِنَّهُمۡ كَانُواْ قَوۡمٗا فَٰسِقِينَ32 32
“Put your hand in your bosom, and then bring it out. It will become brilliant white without any disease or defect. (To dispel your fear) put your hand under your armpit, (it will return to its original form). These are two proofs (of your Prophethood) from your Creator to Firaun and his chiefs. Indeed, they are the people who are disobedient (to Allah).”
قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي قَتَلۡتُ مِنۡهُمۡ نَفۡسٗا فَأَخَافُ أَن يَقۡتُلُونِ33 33
Musa ( ) said: “My Creator! I have killed a man from them, so I fear that they will kill me,
وَأَخِي هَٰرُونُ هُوَ أَفۡصَحُ مِنِّي لِسَانٗا فَأَرۡسِلۡهُ مَعِيَ رِدۡءٗا يُصَدِّقُنِيٓۖ إِنِّيٓ أَخَافُ أَن يُكَذِّبُونِ34 34
“And my brother Harun ( ) – he is more eloquent in speech than me, so send him with me as a supporter to confirm me. Indeed, I fear that they will deny me.”
قَالَ سَنَشُدُّ عَضُدَكَ بِأَخِيكَ وَنَجۡعَلُ لَكُمَا سُلۡطَٰنٗا فَلَا يَصِلُونَ إِلَيۡكُمَا بَِٔايَٰتِنَآۚ أَنتُمَا وَمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَكُمَا ٱلۡغَٰلِبُونَ35 35
Allah said: “We will strengthen your arm with your brother and We will make you dominate, so they will not be able to reach you. You and those who follow you will be victorious due to Our Signs.”
فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم مُّوسَىٰ بَِٔايَٰتِنَا بَيِّنَٰتٖ قَالُواْ مَا هَٰذَآ إِلَّا سِحۡرٞ مُّفۡتَرٗى وَمَا سَمِعۡنَا بِهَٰذَا فِيٓ ءَابَآئِنَا ٱلۡأَوَّلِينَ36 36
So when Musa ( ) came to them with Our miracles, they said: “This is nothing but an invented magic. And we never heard of this among our forefathers.”
وَقَالَ مُوسَىٰ رَبِّيٓ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَن جَآءَ بِٱلۡهُدَىٰ مِنۡ عِندِهِۦ وَمَن تَكُونُ لَهُۥ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلدَّارِۚ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يُفۡلِحُ ٱلظَّٰلِمُونَ37 37
And Musa ( ) said: “My Creator knows best who came with guidance from Him, and who will have (happy) end in the Hereafter. In-deed, the wrong-doers will not be successful.”
وَقَالَ فِرۡعَوۡنُ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلۡمَلَأُ مَا عَلِمۡتُ لَكُم مِّنۡ إِلَٰهٍ غَيۡرِي فَأَوۡقِدۡ لِي يَٰهَٰمَٰنُ عَلَى ٱلطِّينِ فَٱجۡعَل لِّي صَرۡحٗا لَّعَلِّيٓ أَطَّلِعُ إِلَىٰٓ إِلَٰهِ مُوسَىٰ وَإِنِّي لَأَظُنُّهُۥ مِنَ ٱلۡكَٰذِبِينَ38 38
And Firaun said: “O chiefs! I don’t know that you have a god other than me. O Hamaan! Light some fire to bake (bricks out of) clay and construct a lofty tower so that I may glance at the God of Musa ( ) . And, in-deed, I think Musa ( ) is one of the liars.”
وَٱسۡتَكۡبَرَ هُوَ وَجُنُودُهُۥ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ بِغَيۡرِ ٱلۡحَقِّ وَظَنُّوٓاْ أَنَّهُمۡ إِلَيۡنَا لَا يُرۡجَعُونَ39 39
And he (i.e. Firaun) and his army were arrogant in the land unjustly, and they thought that they would never return to Us.
فَأَخَذۡنَٰهُ وَجُنُودَهُۥ فَنَبَذۡنَٰهُمۡ فِي ٱلۡيَمِّۖ فَٱنظُرۡ كَيۡفَ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ40 40
So We seized him and his army, then We threw them all into the sea, so see what was the (bad) end of the wrong-doers.
وَجَعَلۡنَٰهُمۡ أَئِمَّةٗ يَدۡعُونَ إِلَى ٱلنَّارِۖ وَيَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ لَا يُنصَرُونَ41 41
And We made them leaders who invite others to the Fire. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped.
وَأَتۡبَعۡنَٰهُمۡ فِي هَٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا لَعۡنَةٗۖ وَيَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ هُم مِّنَ ٱلۡمَقۡبُوحِينَ42 42
And We made a curse to follow them in this world, and on the Day of Res-urrection they will be among those who are in an extremely disgusting condition.
وَلَقَدۡ ءَاتَيۡنَا مُوسَى ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ مَآ أَهۡلَكۡنَا ٱلۡقُرُونَ ٱلۡأُولَىٰ بَصَآئِرَ لِلنَّاسِ وَهُدٗى وَرَحۡمَةٗ لَّعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ43 43
And after We had destroyed the earlier generations, We gave Musa ( ) , the Scripture as an en-lightenment, guidance, and mercy for mankind so that they might learn a lesson from it.
وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلۡغَرۡبِيِّ إِذۡ قَضَيۡنَآ إِلَىٰ مُوسَى ٱلۡأَمۡرَ وَمَا كُنتَ مِنَ ٱلشَّٰهِدِينَ44 44
[Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)] And you were not on the western side of the mountain when We gave commandment (i.e. Tau-rat) to Musa ( ) and you were not among the witnesses (of this scene). Also Surah Aal-Imran:44
وَلَٰكِنَّآ أَنشَأۡنَا قُرُونٗا فَتَطَاوَلَ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلۡعُمُرُۚ وَمَا كُنتَ ثَاوِيٗا فِيٓ أَهۡلِ مَدۡيَنَ تَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ءَايَٰتِنَا وَلَٰكِنَّا كُنَّا مُرۡسِلِينَ45 45
And We created many genera-tions [after Musa ( ) ] and long ages passed over them. And [O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] you never resided among the people of Madyan reciting Our Verses to them. But We kept sending messengers. (Similarly, We have sent you as a messenger).
وَمَا كُنتَ بِجَانِبِ ٱلطُّورِ إِذۡ نَادَيۡنَا وَلَٰكِن رَّحۡمَةٗ مِّن رَّبِّكَ لِتُنذِرَ قَوۡمٗا مَّآ أَتَىٰهُم مِّن نَّذِيرٖ مِّن قَبۡلِكَ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ46 46
And you [O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] were not also present at the side of mountain Tur when We called [Musa ( ) to grant him Prophethood]. But it is due to the Mercy of your Creator (Who sent you as a messenger) to warn people to whom no warner had come before you so that they may receive some advice.
وَلَوۡلَآ أَن تُصِيبَهُم مُّصِيبَةُۢ بِمَا قَدَّمَتۡ أَيۡدِيهِمۡ فَيَقُولُواْ رَبَّنَا لَوۡلَآ أَرۡسَلۡتَ إِلَيۡنَا رَسُولٗا فَنَتَّبِعَ ءَايَٰتِكَ وَنَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ47 47
(And if We had not sent you as a messenger) whenever an adversity came to them due to that (their evil deeds) which their hands have sent forth, they would have said: “Our Creator! Why did you not send us a messenger, so we would have followed your revelations and would have been among the believers?”
فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلۡحَقُّ مِنۡ عِندِنَا قَالُواْ لَوۡلَآ أُوتِيَ مِثۡلَ مَآ أُوتِيَ مُوسَىٰٓۚ أَوَلَمۡ يَكۡفُرُواْ بِمَآ أُوتِيَ مُوسَىٰ مِن قَبۡلُۖ قَالُواْ سِحۡرَانِ تَظَٰهَرَا وَقَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا بِكُلّٖ كَٰفِرُونَ48 48
So when the truth [i.e. Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be up-on him) with his message] has come to them from Us, they say: “Why is he not given similar to what was given to Musa ( ) (i.e. Why the Quran did not come altogether as Taurat did?). Did they not disbelieve in that which was given to Musa ( ) before this? They say (about the Quran and the Taurat): “Two kinds of magic supporting each other!” They (further) say: “We, indeed, dis-be-lieve all of them.”
قُلۡ فَأۡتُواْ بِكِتَٰبٖ مِّنۡ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ هُوَ أَهۡدَىٰ مِنۡهُمَآ أَتَّبِعۡهُ إِن كُنتُمۡ صَٰدِقِينَ49 49
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Say (to them): “Then bring a Book from Allah, which offers better guidance than these two Books so that I may follow it, if you are truthful (in your claim).”
فَإِن لَّمۡ يَسۡتَجِيبُواْ لَكَ فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّمَا يَتَّبِعُونَ أَهۡوَآءَهُمۡۚ وَمَنۡ أَضَلُّ مِمَّنِ ٱتَّبَعَ هَوَىٰهُ بِغَيۡرِ هُدٗى مِّنَ ٱللَّهِۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهۡدِي ٱلۡقَوۡمَ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ50 50
But if they don’t answer you, then know that they only follow their vain desires. And who is more astray than one who follows his vain desires, without guidance from Allah? Indeed, Allah does not guide the people who are wrong-doers.
۞وَلَقَدۡ وَصَّلۡنَا لَهُمُ ٱلۡقَوۡلَ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ51 51
And We have, indeed, sent our Word (i.e. the Quran) to them so that they may seek advice from it.
ٱلَّذِينَ ءَاتَيۡنَٰهُمُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ مِن قَبۡلِهِۦ هُم بِهِۦ يُؤۡمِنُونَ52 52
Those to whom We gave Scriptures before it, they (the just scholars) believe (in the Quran).
وَإِذَا يُتۡلَىٰ عَلَيۡهِمۡ قَالُوٓاْ ءَامَنَّا بِهِۦٓ إِنَّهُ ٱلۡحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّنَآ إِنَّا كُنَّا مِن قَبۡلِهِۦ مُسۡلِمِينَ53 53
And when it is recited to them, they say: “We believe that it is the truth from our Creator. Indeed, even before this we were Muslims (i.e. followers of all the messengers are Muslims).”
أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ يُؤۡتَوۡنَ أَجۡرَهُم مَّرَّتَيۡنِ بِمَا صَبَرُواْ وَيَدۡرَءُونَ بِٱلۡحَسَنَةِ ٱلسَّيِّئَةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنَٰهُمۡ يُنفِقُونَ54 54
Those will be given double reward because they are patient and return evil with goodness and spend (in charity) out of what We have given them.
وَإِذَا سَمِعُواْ ٱللَّغۡوَ أَعۡرَضُواْ عَنۡهُ وَقَالُواْ لَنَآ أَعۡمَٰلُنَا وَلَكُمۡ أَعۡمَٰلُكُمۡ سَلَٰمٌ عَلَيۡكُمۡ لَا نَبۡتَغِي ٱلۡجَٰهِلِينَ55 55
And when they hear vain talk, they walk away from it and say: “Our deeds are for us and your deeds are for you. Salam to you, we don’t seek (the way of) the ignorant people.”
إِنَّكَ لَا تَهۡدِي مَنۡ أَحۡبَبۡتَ وَلَٰكِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَهۡدِي مَن يَشَآءُۚ وَهُوَ أَعۡلَمُ بِٱلۡمُهۡتَدِينَ56 56
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Indeed, you cannot guide whom you like, but only Allah guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are guided.
وَقَالُوٓاْ إِن نَّتَّبِعِ ٱلۡهُدَىٰ مَعَكَ نُتَخَطَّفۡ مِنۡ أَرۡضِنَآۚ أَوَلَمۡ نُمَكِّن لَّهُمۡ حَرَمًا ءَامِنٗا يُجۡبَىٰٓ إِلَيۡهِ ثَمَرَٰتُ كُلِّ شَيۡءٖ رِّزۡقٗا مِّن لَّدُنَّا وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ57 57
(The disbelievers refuse to embrace Islam for the following reasons). And they say: “If we follow the guidance with you, we would be snatched away from our land”. (But it is not a valid excuse) Have We not stationed them around Ha-ram (sanctuary) which is a place of peace and security and all kinds of fruits are brought to it as provision from Ourselves, but most of them don’t know it?
وَكَمۡ أَهۡلَكۡنَا مِن قَرۡيَةِۢ بَطِرَتۡ مَعِيشَتَهَاۖ فَتِلۡكَ مَسَٰكِنُهُمۡ لَمۡ تُسۡكَن مِّنۢ بَعۡدِهِمۡ إِلَّا قَلِيلٗاۖ وَكُنَّا نَحۡنُ ٱلۡوَٰرِثِينَ58 58
And how many communities We have destroyed which used to rejoice a lot for the luxuries of their life. And those are their homes (as ruins) which were never inhabited after them again except very little. And We have been the inher-itor (of all their belongings).
وَمَا كَانَ رَبُّكَ مُهۡلِكَ ٱلۡقُرَىٰ حَتَّىٰ يَبۡعَثَ فِيٓ أُمِّهَا رَسُولٗا يَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ءَايَٰتِنَاۚ وَمَا كُنَّا مُهۡلِكِي ٱلۡقُرَىٰٓ إِلَّا وَأَهۡلُهَا ظَٰلِمُونَ59 59
And your Creator will never destroy any community until He sends to their capi-tal city a messenger who recites Our Verses to them. And We never destroy a community unless its people insist upon wrong-doings.
وَمَآ أُوتِيتُم مِّن شَيۡءٖ فَمَتَٰعُ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَزِينَتُهَاۚ وَمَا عِندَ ٱللَّهِ خَيۡرٞ وَأَبۡقَىٰٓۚ أَفَلَا تَعۡقِلُونَ60 60
And whatever you have been given is for the enjoyment and splendour of this worldly life and that which is with Allah (in the Hereafter) is far superior and lasting. Have you then no sense (to make the correct choice)?
أَفَمَن وَعَدۡنَٰهُ وَعۡدًا حَسَنٗا فَهُوَ لَٰقِيهِ كَمَن مَّتَّعۡنَٰهُ مَتَٰعَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا ثُمَّ هُوَ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ مِنَ ٱلۡمُحۡضَرِينَ61 61
Is he whom We have made a fantastic promise (i.e. Paradise) – and he will find this promise come true – like him whom We have given the comforts of the life of this world, and he will be among those who are seized (and punished) on the Day of Judgement?
وَيَوۡمَ يُنَادِيهِمۡ فَيَقُولُ أَيۡنَ شُرَكَآءِيَ ٱلَّذِينَ كُنتُمۡ تَزۡعُمُونَ62 62
And (remember) the Day when He will call to them and say: “Where are those whom you used to consider My (so-called) partners?”
قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ حَقَّ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلۡقَوۡلُ رَبَّنَا هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ ٱلَّذِينَ أَغۡوَيۡنَآ أَغۡوَيۡنَٰهُمۡ كَمَا غَوَيۡنَاۖ تَبَرَّأۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَۖ مَا كَانُوٓاْ إِيَّانَا يَعۡبُدُونَ63 63
Those about whom the Word (for punishment) has been justified, will say: “Our Creator! These are those whom we led astray. We led them astray (without any force), just as we went astray (without anybody forcing us. These are our and their voluntary choices. Though we are criminals, but they are criminals too). We declare in Your presence that we have no relation with them. They did not wor-ship us. (They were simply following their own vain desires).
وَقِيلَ ٱدۡعُواْ شُرَكَآءَكُمۡ فَدَعَوۡهُمۡ فَلَمۡ يَسۡتَجِيبُواْ لَهُمۡ وَرَأَوُاْ ٱلۡعَذَابَۚ لَوۡ أَنَّهُمۡ كَانُواْ يَهۡتَدُونَ64 64
And it will be said (to them): “Call upon your (so-called) partners (of Al-lah),” and they will call upon them, but their false gods will not even answer, and they all will see the torment. (They will then wish) that if only they had been guided.
وَيَوۡمَ يُنَادِيهِمۡ فَيَقُولُ مَاذَآ أَجَبۡتُمُ ٱلۡمُرۡسَلِينَ65 65
And (remember) the Day when He (Allah) will call to them and say: “What answer did you give to the messengers?”
فَعَمِيَتۡ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلۡأَنۢبَآءُ يَوۡمَئِذٖ فَهُمۡ لَا يَتَسَآءَلُونَ66 66
Then all (good) answers will be erased (from their brains) on that Day and they will not be able to consult each other.
فَأَمَّا مَن تَابَ وَءَامَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَٰلِحٗا فَعَسَىٰٓ أَن يَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡلِحِينَ67 67
But as for him who believed after repentance, and did good deeds, he will be among those who are successful.
وَرَبُّكَ يَخۡلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَيَخۡتَارُۗ مَا كَانَ لَهُمُ ٱلۡخِيَرَةُۚ سُبۡحَٰنَ ٱللَّهِ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ68 68
And your Creator creates what-soever He wills and He chooses (whatsoever He wills). People have no choice. Glorified is Allah above all that they associate (as partners with Him).
وَرَبُّكَ يَعۡلَمُ مَا تُكِنُّ صُدُورُهُمۡ وَمَا يُعۡلِنُونَ69 69
And your Creator has (perfect) knowledge of what is hidden in their hearts and what they reveal.
وَهُوَ ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۖ لَهُ ٱلۡحَمۡدُ فِي ٱلۡأُولَىٰ وَٱلۡأٓخِرَةِۖ وَلَهُ ٱلۡحُكۡمُ وَإِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ70 70
And He is Allah. None has the right to be worshipped but Him. All praise and thanks are due to Him (Alone) in this world and in the Hereafter. And Sov-ereignty is for Him Alone, and to Him you all shall be returned.
قُلۡ أَرَءَيۡتُمۡ إِن جَعَلَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيۡكُمُ ٱلَّيۡلَ سَرۡمَدًا إِلَىٰ يَوۡمِ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ مَنۡ إِلَٰهٌ غَيۡرُ ٱللَّهِ يَأۡتِيكُم بِضِيَآءٍۚ أَفَلَا تَسۡمَعُونَ71 71
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Say: “Tell me! If Allah made the night perpetual for you till the Day of Resurrection, which god besides Allah could bring you light? Don’t you hear?”
قُلۡ أَرَءَيۡتُمۡ إِن جَعَلَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيۡكُمُ ٱلنَّهَارَ سَرۡمَدًا إِلَىٰ يَوۡمِ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ مَنۡ إِلَٰهٌ غَيۡرُ ٱللَّهِ يَأۡتِيكُم بِلَيۡلٖ تَسۡكُنُونَ فِيهِۚ أَفَلَا تُبۡصِرُونَ72 72
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Say: “Tell me! If Allah made the day perpetual for you till the Day of Resurrection, which god besides Allah could bring you night in which you may rest? Don’t you see (this point)?”
وَمِن رَّحۡمَتِهِۦ جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلَّيۡلَ وَٱلنَّهَارَ لِتَسۡكُنُواْ فِيهِ وَلِتَبۡتَغُواْ مِن فَضۡلِهِۦ وَلَعَلَّكُمۡ تَشۡكُرُونَ73 73
And it is due to His Mercy that He has created for you the night and the day so that you may rest (during the night) and so that you may seek His Bounty (during the day) – and in order that you may be grateful (to Him for both fa-vours).
وَيَوۡمَ يُنَادِيهِمۡ فَيَقُولُ أَيۡنَ شُرَكَآءِيَ ٱلَّذِينَ كُنتُمۡ تَزۡعُمُونَ74 74
And (remember) the Day when He (Allah) will call them (the idolaters), and will say: “Where are those whom you used to consider my partners (in wor-ship)?”
وَنَزَعۡنَا مِن كُلِّ أُمَّةٖ شَهِيدٗا فَقُلۡنَا هَاتُواْ بُرۡهَٰنَكُمۡ فَعَلِمُوٓاْ أَنَّ ٱلۡحَقَّ لِلَّهِ وَضَلَّ عَنۡهُم مَّا كَانُواْ يَفۡتَرُونَ75 75
And We shall bring out from every nation a witness (i.e. Prophet), and We shall say (to the idolaters): “Show your proof.” At that time they shall know (and realize) that the truth is with Allah (Alone) and the lies which they used to invent will disappear from them.
۞إِنَّ قَٰرُونَ كَانَ مِن قَوۡمِ مُوسَىٰ فَبَغَىٰ عَلَيۡهِمۡۖ وَءَاتَيۡنَٰهُ مِنَ ٱلۡكُنُوزِ مَآ إِنَّ مَفَاتِحَهُۥ لَتَنُوٓأُ بِٱلۡعُصۡبَةِ أُوْلِي ٱلۡقُوَّةِ إِذۡ قَالَ لَهُۥ قَوۡمُهُۥ لَا تَفۡرَحۡۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡفَرِحِينَ76 76
Indeed, Qarun was from Musa’s ( ) people but he was arrogant towards them (due to his wealth). And We gave him such treasures, that several strong persons could hardly carry the keys of his treasures. (Remember) when his people said to him: “Don’t act triumphant or boastful (with riches). Indeed, Allah does not like those who are boastful (with riches).
وَٱبۡتَغِ فِيمَآ ءَاتَىٰكَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلدَّارَ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةَۖ وَلَا تَنسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ ٱلدُّنۡيَاۖ وَأَحۡسِن كَمَآ أَحۡسَنَ ٱللَّهُ إِلَيۡكَۖ وَلَا تَبۡغِ ٱلۡفَسَادَ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ77 77
“And seek the good of the Hereafter with the wealth which Allah has given you. And spend reasonably for your worldly needs and be kind to the people as Allah has been kind to you (i.e. give in charity to help people). And don’t seek to spread mischief in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like the mischief makers.”
قَالَ إِنَّمَآ أُوتِيتُهُۥ عَلَىٰ عِلۡمٍ عِندِيٓۚ أَوَلَمۡ يَعۡلَمۡ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ قَدۡ أَهۡلَكَ مِن قَبۡلِهِۦ مِنَ ٱلۡقُرُونِ مَنۡ هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنۡهُ قُوَّةٗ وَأَكۡثَرُ جَمۡعٗاۚ وَلَا يُسَۡٔلُ عَن ذُنُوبِهِمُ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمُونَ78 78
Qarun said: “This has been given to me only due to the knowledge I pos-sess.” Did he not know that Allah had destroyed communities before him, which were stronger than him in power and much greater in riches and the criminals are not questioned about their sins (they will be punished without any accountability process).
فَخَرَجَ عَلَىٰ قَوۡمِهِۦ فِي زِينَتِهِۦۖ قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنۡيَا يَٰلَيۡتَ لَنَا مِثۡلَ مَآ أُوتِيَ قَٰرُونُ إِنَّهُۥ لَذُو حَظٍّ عَظِيمٖ79 79
So he came out before his people with great pomp and show. Those who preferred the life of this world, said: “Ah! We wish that we had similar to what Qarun has been given! Indeed, he is a very fortunate person.”
وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ وَيۡلَكُمۡ ثَوَابُ ٱللَّهِ خَيۡرٞ لِّمَنۡ ءَامَنَ وَعَمِلَ صَٰلِحٗاۚ وَلَا يُلَقَّىٰهَآ إِلَّا ٱلصَّٰبِرُونَ80 80
But those who had been given the (religious) knowledge said: “Woe to you! The reward of Allah (in the Hereafter) is far superior for those who believe and do good deeds, and this point is put in the minds of only those who are very pa-tient.”
فَخَسَفۡنَا بِهِۦ وَبِدَارِهِ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ فَمَا كَانَ لَهُۥ مِن فِئَةٖ يَنصُرُونَهُۥ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُنتَصِرِينَ81 81
So We made the earth to swallow him along with his castle. Then he had no group to help him against Us (although he belonged to a big group), nor was he one of those who could save themselves.
وَأَصۡبَحَ ٱلَّذِينَ تَمَنَّوۡاْ مَكَانَهُۥ بِٱلۡأَمۡسِ يَقُولُونَ وَيۡكَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَبۡسُطُ ٱلرِّزۡقَ لِمَن يَشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِۦ وَيَقۡدِرُۖ لَوۡلَآ أَن مَّنَّ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيۡنَا لَخَسَفَ بِنَاۖ وَيۡكَأَنَّهُۥ لَا يُفۡلِحُ ٱلۡكَٰفِرُونَ82 82
And those who had desired to be like Qarun the day before, said: “It is clear that it is Allah Who bestows His riches on whom He wills and limits it for whom He wills among His slaves. And if Allah had not been Gracious to us, the earth could have swallowed us too. Don’t you see that the disbelievers will never be successful?”
تِلۡكَ ٱلدَّارُ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةُ نَجۡعَلُهَا لِلَّذِينَ لَا يُرِيدُونَ عُلُوّٗا فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَلَا فَسَادٗاۚ وَٱلۡعَٰقِبَةُ لِلۡمُتَّقِينَ83 83
We have assigned the home of the Hereafter (i.e. Paradise) for those who are not arrogant and they do not spread mischief in the land. And the pious people have an enviable end.
مَن جَآءَ بِٱلۡحَسَنَةِ فَلَهُۥ خَيۡرٞ مِّنۡهَاۖ وَمَن جَآءَ بِٱلسَّيِّئَةِ فَلَا يُجۡزَى ٱلَّذِينَ عَمِلُواْ ٱلسَّئَِّاتِ إِلَّا مَا كَانُواْ يَعۡمَلُونَ84 84
Whoever brings good deeds, he shall receive more reward than what he de-serves. And whoever brings evil deeds, he will be punished according to his deeds (and no injustice will be done to him).
إِنَّ ٱلَّذِي فَرَضَ عَلَيۡكَ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ لَرَآدُّكَ إِلَىٰ مَعَادٖۚ قُل رَّبِّيٓ أَعۡلَمُ مَن جَآءَ بِٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَمَنۡ هُوَ فِي ضَلَٰلٖ مُّبِينٖ85 85
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Indeed, He Who has made it obligatory for you (to preach and follow the commands of) the Quran, will bring you back to the place of return (i.e. home or Makkah. Hence, reciting the Quran and following its teachings ensure Allah’s help and victory). [O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] Say: “My Cre-ator knows best the one who brings (true) guidance, and the one who is obviously astray.
وَمَا كُنتَ تَرۡجُوٓاْ أَن يُلۡقَىٰٓ إِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبُ إِلَّا رَحۡمَةٗ مِّن رَّبِّكَۖ فَلَا تَكُونَنَّ ظَهِيرٗا لِّلۡكَٰفِرِينَ86 86
And it never occurred (to your mind) that a Book will be revealed to you but (it was sent down) due to the Mercy of your Creator. Hence, you should never be a supporter of the disbelievers.
وَلَا يَصُدُّنَّكَ عَنۡ ءَايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ بَعۡدَ إِذۡ أُنزِلَتۡ إِلَيۡكَۖ وَٱدۡعُ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَۖ وَلَا تَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكِينَ87 87
[O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] And let the disbelievers not stop you from preaching the Commands of Allah (as it has not happened so far) after they have been sent down to you. And (continue) inviting people to (the religion of) your Creator, and don’t be one of the idolaters.
وَلَا تَدۡعُ مَعَ ٱللَّهِ إِلَٰهًا ءَاخَرَۘ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۚ كُلُّ شَيۡءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجۡهَهُۥۚ لَهُ ٱلۡحُكۡمُ وَإِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ88 88
And don’t worship any other god along with Allah. None has the right to be worshipped but He. Everything will perish except Allah. He is the Sovereign and all of you shall be returned to Him. (Also Surah Ar-Rahman:26-27).
