 :: Holy Quran: 26. Ash-Shu'ara

 Surah Name Meaning: The Poets
 Revealed at Mecca, Ayat 227

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

26:1

 

Ta. Sin. Mim.

26:2

 

These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.

26:3

 

It may be thou frettest thy soul with grief, that they do not become Believers.

26:4

 

If (such) were Our Will, We could send down to them from the sky a Sign, to which they would bend their necks in humility.

26:5

 

But there comes not to them a newly-revealed Message from ((Allah)) Most Gracious, but they turn away therefrom.

26:6

 

They have indeed rejected (the Message): so they will know soon (enough) the truth of what they mocked at!

26:7

 

Do they not look at the earth,- how many noble things of all kinds We have produced therein?

26:8

 

Verily, in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.

26:9

 

And verily, thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.

26:10

 

Behold, thy Lord called Moses: "Go to the people of iniquity,-

26:11

 

"The people of the Pharaoh: will they not fear Allah."

26:12

 

He said: "O my Lord! I do fear that they will charge me with falsehood:

26:13

 

"My breast will be straitened. And my speech may not go (smoothly): so send unto Aaron.

26:14

 

"And (further), they have a charge of crime against me; and I fear they may slay me."

26:15

 

Allah said: "By no means! proceed then, both of you, with Our Signs; We are with you, and will listen (to your call).

26:16

 

"So go forth, both of you, to Pharaoh, and say: 'We have been sent by the Lord and Cherisher of the worlds;

26:17

 

"'Send thou with us the Children of Israel.'"

26:18

 

(Pharaoh) said: "Did we not cherish thee as a child among us, and didst thou not stay in our midst many years of thy life?

26:19

 

"And thou didst a deed of thine which (thou knowest) thou didst, and thou art an ungrateful (wretch)!"

26:20

 

Moses said: "I did it then, when I was in error.

26:21

 

"So I fled from you (all) when I feared you; but my Lord has (since) invested me with judgment (and wisdom) and appointed me as one of the apostles.

26:22

 

"And this is the favour with which thou dost reproach me,- that thou hast enslaved the Children of Israel!"

26:23

 

Pharaoh said: "And what is the 'Lord and Cherisher of the worlds'?"

26:24

 

(Moses) said: "The Lord and Cherisher of the heavens and the earth, and all between,- if ye want to be quite sure."

26:25

 

(Pharaoh) said to those around: "Did ye not listen (to what he says)?"

26:26

 

(Moses) said: "Your Lord and the Lord of your fathers from the beginning!"

26:27

 

(Pharaoh) said: "Truly your apostle who has been sent to you is a veritable madman!"

26:28

 

(Moses) said: "Lord of the East and the West, and all between! if ye only had sense!"

26:29

 

(Pharaoh) said: "If thou dost put forward any god other than me, I will certainly put thee in prison!"

26:30

 

(Moses) said: "Even if I showed you something clear (and) convincing?"

26:31

 

(Pharaoh) said: "Show it then, if thou tellest the truth!"

26:32

 

So (Moses) threw his rod, and behold, it was a serpent, plain (for all to see)!

26:33

 

And he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to all beholders!

26:34

 

(Pharaoh) said to the Chiefs around him: "This is indeed a sorcerer well- versed:

26:35

 

"His plan is to get you out of your land by his sorcery; then what is it ye counsel?"

26:36

 

They said: "Keep him and his brother in suspense (for a while), and dispatch to the Cities heralds to collect-

26:37

 

"And bring up to thee all (our) sorcerers well-versed."

26:38

 

So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a day well-known,

26:39

 

And the people were told: "Are ye (now) assembled?-

26:40

 

"That we may follow the sorcerers (in religion) if they win?"

26:41

 

So when the sorcerers arrived, they said to Pharaoh: "Of course - shall we have a (suitable) reward if we win?

26:42

 

He said: "Yea, (and more),- for ye shall in that case be (raised to posts) nearest (to my person)."

26:43

 

Moses said to them: "Throw ye - that which ye are about to throw!"

26:44

 

So they threw their ropes and their rods, and said: "By the might of Pharaoh, it is we who will certainly win!"

26:45

 

Then Moses threw his rod, when, behold, it straightway swallows up all the falsehoods which they fake!

26:46

 

Then did the sorcerers fall down, prostrate in adoration,

26:47

 

Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,

26:48

 

"The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

26:49

 

Said (Pharaoh): "Believe ye in Him before I give you permission? surely he is your leader, who has taught you sorcery! but soon shall ye know!

26:50

 

"Be sure I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will cause you all to die on the cross!"
