36 Ya-Sin | Ya Sin

  • 36:1


  • 36:2

    By the wise Quran.

  • 36:3

    You are one of the messengers.

  • 36:4

    Upon a straight path.

  • 36:5

    The revelation of the Honorable, the Compassionate.

  • 36:6

    To warn a people whose fathers were not warned, for they are unaware.

  • 36:7

    The retribution has been deserved by most of them, for they do not acknowledge.

  • 36:8

    We have placed shackles around their necks, up to their chins, so that they are forced in direction.

  • 36:9

    We have placed a barrier in front of them, and a barrier behind them, thus We shielded them so they cannot see.

  • 36:10

    Whether you warn them or do not warn them, they will not acknowledge.

  • 36:11

    You can only warn him who follows the reminder, and reverences the Gracious while unseen. Give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward.

  • 36:12

    It is indeed Us who resurrect the dead, and We record what they have done and left behind. Everything We have counted in a clear ledger.

  • 36:13

    Cite for them the example of the people of the town, when the messengers came to it.

  • 36:14

    Where We sent two to them, but they rejected them, so We supported them with a third one, thus they said, "We are messengers to you."

  • 36:15

    They replied: "You are but human beings like us, and the Gracious did not send down anything, you are only telling lies."

  • 36:16

    They said, "Our Lord knows that we have been sent to you."

  • 36:17

    "We are only required to give a clear delivery."

  • 36:18

    They replied: "We have welcomed you better than you deserve. If you do not cease, we will stone/excommunicate you, and you will receive a painful retribution from us!"

  • 36:19

    They said, "Keep your welcome with you, for you have been reminded. Indeed, you are transgressing people."

  • 36:20

    A man came running from the farthest part of the city, saying: "O my people, follow the messengers."

  • 36:21

    "Follow those who do not ask you for any wage, and are guided."

  • 36:22

    "Why should I not serve the One who initiated me, and to Him is your ultimate return?"

  • 36:23

    "Shall I take gods besides Him? If the Gracious intends any harm for me, their intercession cannot help me in the least, nor can they save me."

  • 36:24

    "Then I would be clearly astray."

  • 36:25

    "I have acknowledged your Lord, so listen to me!"

  • 36:26

    It was said, "Enter Paradise." He said "Oh, how I wish my people only knew!"

  • 36:27

    "Of what my Lord has forgiven me, and made me of the honored ones."

  • 36:28

    We did not send down upon his people after him soldiers from the sky; for there was no need to send them down.

  • 36:29

    For all it took was one scream, whereupon they were stilled.

  • 36:30

    Alas for the servants. For every time a messenger went to them, they would ridicule him.

  • 36:31

    Did they not see how many generations We destroyed before them; do they not go back to them?

  • 36:32

    How every one of them will be summoned before Us.

  • 36:33

    A sign for them is the dead land, We revive it and produce from it seeds from which they eat.

  • 36:34

    We made in it gardens of date palms, and grapes, and We cause springs to gush forth therein.

  • 36:35

    So that they may eat from its fruits, and what they manufacture with their own hands. Would they be thankful?

  • 36:36

    Praise be to the One who created all pairs from what the earth sprouts out and from themselves, and from what they do not know.

  • 36:37

    A sign for them is the night, We remove the daylight from it, whereupon they are in darkness.

  • 36:38

    The sun runs to a specific destination, such is the design of the Noble, the Knowledgeable.

  • 36:39

    The moon: We have measured it to appear in stages, until it returns to being like an old curved sheath.

  • 36:40

    The sun is not required to overtake the moon, nor will the night precede the day; each of them is swimming in its own orbit.

  • 36:41

    A sign for them is that We carried their ancestors on the charged Ship.

  • 36:42

    We created for them of its similarity, to ride in.

  • 36:43

    If We wished, We could drown them, so that their screaming would not be heard, nor could they be saved.

  • 36:44

    Except through a mercy from Us, and as an enjoyment for awhile.

  • 36:45

    When they are told: "Be aware of your present and your past, that you may attain mercy."

  • 36:46

    No matter what sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord, they turn away from it.

  • 36:47

    When they are told: "Spend from what God has provisioned you." Those who reject say to those who acknowledge: "Shall we feed those whom God could feed, if He so willed? You are clearly misguided!"

  • 36:48

    They say, "When is this promise to come, if you are truthful?"

  • 36:49

    They will not realize it when one scream overwhelms them, while they dispute.

  • 36:50

    They will not even be able to leave a will, nor will they be able to return to their people.

  • 36:51

    The horn will be blown, whereupon they will rise from the graves rushing towards their Lord.

  • 36:52

    They will say, "Woe to us. Who has resurrected us from our resting place? This is what the Gracious had promised. The messengers were truthful!"

  • 36:53

    It only took one scream, whereupon they are summoned before Us.

  • 36:54

    On this day, no person will be wronged in the least. You will be recompensed precisely for whatever you did.

  • 36:55

    The dwellers of Paradise will be, on that day, joyfully busy.

  • 36:56

    They and their spouses, both will be shaded, reclining on high furnishings.

  • 36:57

    They will have fruits therein; they will have in it whatever they ask for.

  • 36:58

    "Peace," a word from a Compassionate Lord.

  • 36:59

    "As for you, O criminals, you are singled out."

  • 36:60

    "Did I not pledge to you, O Children of Adam, that you should not serve the devil for he is your most ardent enemy?"

  • 36:61

    "That you should serve Me? That is a straight path."

  • 36:62

    "He has misled mountain loads of you. Did you not possess any understanding?"

  • 36:63

    "This is hell that you have been promised!"

  • 36:64

    "Burn in it today, as a consequence of your rejection."

  • 36:65

    Today, We shall seal their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness to every-thing they had done.

  • 36:66

    If We wished, We can blind their eyes, and they would race towards the path, but how would they see?

  • 36:67

    If We wished, We can freeze them in their place; thus, they can neither move forward, nor go back.

  • 36:68

    For whomever We grant a long life, We weaken him in body. Do they not understand?

  • 36:69

    We did not teach him poetry, nor does he need it. This is a reminder and a clear Quran.

  • 36:70

    To warn those who are alive, and so that the retribution will be deserved by the ingrates.

  • 36:71

    Did they not see that We created for them with Our own hands livestock which they own?

  • 36:72

    They were subdued by Us for them. So some they ride, and some they eat.

  • 36:73

    They have in them other benefits, as well as drinks. Would they not be appreciative?

  • 36:74

    They have taken besides God other gods, perhaps they will help them!

  • 36:75

    They cannot help them. They become to them as foot-soldiers.

  • 36:76

    So do not be saddened by what they say. We are fully aware of what they conceal and what they declare.

  • 36:77

    Has the human being not seen that We have created him from a seed, and yet he would become a clear enemy?

  • 36:78

    He cites an example for Us, while forgetting his own creation! He says: "Who can resurrect the bones while they are dust?"

  • 36:79

    Say, "The One who made them in the first place will resurrect them. He is fully aware of every creation."

  • 36:80

    The One who produces for you a fire from the green tree, which you burn.

  • 36:81

    Is not the One who created the heavens and the earth able to create the like of them? Yes indeed; He is the Creator, the Knowledgeable.

  • 36:82

    His command, when He wants anything, is to say to it: "Be" and it is!

  • 36:83

    Therefore, praise be to the One in whose Hand is the sovereignty of all things, and to Him you will be returned.
