10. Yunus (Jonah, 109 verses)
10.1. Alif. Lām. Rā. These are the Revelations included in the Book full of wisdom.
10.2. Does it seem strange to people that We reveal to a man from among them, saying: "Warn all humankind (of the consequences of the way they follow), and give those who believe the glad tidings that they have a sure footing with their Lord (on account of their belief, faithfulness, and righteous deeds)"? (Is it because of this that) the unbelievers say: "This (man) is clearly a sorcerer?. "
10.3. Surely your Lord is God, Who has created the heavens and the earth in six days; then He established Himself on the Supreme Throne, directing all affairs (as the sole Ruler of creation). There is none to intercede with God unless after He grants leave. That is God, Your Lord, so worship Him. Will you still not reflect (on this fundamental truth) and be mindful?
10.4. To Him, you are all bound to return: a promise from God in truth (therefore certain to happen). He originates creation, then He brings it forth anew (in another world), to the end that He may reward with equity those who believe and do good, righteous deeds. Whereas for those who disbelieve (and die as unbelievers), there is a drink of boiling water and a painful punishment because they persistently disbelieve.
10.5. He it is Who has made the sun a radiant, illuminating light, and the moon a light reflected, and has determined for it stations, that you might know (how to compute) the number of the years and to measure (time). God has not created that but with truth (for a definite purpose, and meaningfully). He sets out in detail the signs (and proofs of the truth) for a people seeking knowledge.
10.6. In the alternation of night and day (with their periods shortening and lengthening), and all that He has created in the heavens and the earth, surely there are signs (manifesting truth) for a people who keep from disobedience to Him in reverence for Him.
10.7. Those who have no expectations to meet Us and are well-pleased with the present, worldly life, and (neither looking nor seeing beyond it) are content with it, and those who are heedless of Our Revelations and Our signs (manifested to them in their inner worlds and in the outer world):
10.8. Those are they whose final refuge is the Fire because of what they have been earning.
10.9. Surely for those who believe and do good, righteous deeds, their Lord will guide them by virtue of their belief to a happy end: rivers will flow at their feet in the Gardens of bounty and blessing.
10.10. Therein, their invocation will be: "All-Glorified You are, O God! (You are absolutely exalted above having any defects and doing anything wrong. )" And their greeting (to each other, and from God and the angels) will be: "Peace!" And their invocation will close with "All praise and gratitude are for God, the Lord of the worlds!"
10.11. If God were to hasten for human beings the ill (which they have earned) in the same manner as they hasten (the coming to them of what they consider to be) the good, their term would indeed have been decreed over for them. But We leave those who do not expect to encounter Us in their rebellion, blindly wandering.
10.12. When affliction befalls (such) a person, he invokes Us (in every situation), lying down on his side or sitting or standing; but when We remove his affliction from him, he goes his way as if he had never invoked us for an affliction that befell him. So to those wasteful ones (who have wasted their God-given faculties and committed excesses) are the things they have been doing decked out to be appealing.
10.13. Assuredly We destroyed many generations before you when they committed wrongs (in their deeds, in their measures and judgments, and in their response to the truth): the Messengers raised from among them came to them with the clear proofs of the truth, but it was plain that they would not believe. Thus do We recompense the disbelieving criminals committed to accumulating sin.
10.14. Then We made you successors after them on the earth, so that We might behold how you act.
10.15. When Our Revelations, clear as evidence and in meaning are recited (and conveyed) to them, those who have no expectations to meet Us say (in response to Our Messenger): "Either bring a Qur'ān other than this or alter it. " Say: "It is not for me to alter it of my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me. Indeed I fear, if I should rebel against my Lord, the punishment of an Awful Day. "
10.16. Say (also): "If God had so willed, I would not have recited it to you, nor would He have brought it to your knowledge. I lived among you a whole lifetime before it (began to be revealed to me). Will you not reason and understand?"
10.17. Who is more in the wrong than he who fabricates falsehood in attribution to God, or denies His Revelations and His signs (in the universe and in their own selves)? Surely the disbelieving criminals will not prosper.
10.18. They worship, apart from God, things or beings that can neither harm nor benefit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with God. " Say: "Would you inform God of something in the heavens or the earth that He does not know? All-Glorified is He, and absolutely exalted above all that they associate with Him. "
10.19. Humankind (in the beginning) was but one community following one single way; but later, they differed and began following different ways. Had it not been for a decree already issued by your Lord (postponing the final, decisive judgment until an appointed term), it would indeed have been judged between them in respect of all that they differ on.
10.20. They say: "Why isn't a miraculous sign (of a different sort) sent down on him from his Lord?" Say, then: "The Unseen belongs to God alone (He does whatever He wills, and only He knows what the future will bring): therefore, wait and see. Indeed, I, too, am with you among those who wait. "
10.21. Whenever We let the (unbelieving) people taste an act of grace after a hardship which has visited them, they at once contrive some plot against Our Revelations. Say: "God is swifter in enforcing His will (and making any plot rebound on those who conceived it). " Surely Our (heavenly) envoys (angels) are recording what they are devising.
10.22. He it is Who conveys you on the land and the sea. And when you are in the ships, and the ships run with their voyagers with a fair breeze, and they rejoice in it – until there comes upon them a tempest, and waves surge towards them from all sides, so that they are sure that they are encompassed (by death, with no way out). and they call upon God, sincerely believing in Him alone (as the only Deity, Lord, and Sovereign): "If You save us from this, we will most certainly be among the thankful. "
10.23. But when He has saved them, they behave rebelliously on earth, offending against all right. O humankind! Your rebellion is only against yourselves. (What you seek and get by all your offenses is only) the enjoyment of the present, worldly life; thereafter, to Us is your return whereupon We will make you understand what you were doing (and call you to account).
10.24. The present, worldly life is like this: We send down water from the sky, and the earth's vegetation, of which humans and animals eat, mingles with it, until, when the earth has taken on her ornaments and has been embellished, and its inhabitants suppose that they are its masters with a free hand over the earth, Our command comes upon it by night or day unexpectedly, and We cause it to become like a field mown down, as if it had not flourished the previous day. Thus, We set out in detail the signs (the signposts of Our way, and the relevant commands and guidance included in the Qur'ān) for a people who reflect (on them and draw the necessary lessons).
10.25. And God invites to the Abode of Peace (where they will enjoy perfect bliss, peace, and safety) and He guides whomever He wills to a Straight Path.
10.26. For those who do good, aware that God is seeing them, is the best (of the rewards that God has promised for good deeds), and still more. Neither stain nor ignominy will cover their faces. They are the companions of Paradise; they will abide therein.
10.27. And for those who have earned evil deeds, the recompense of an evil deed will be the like of it; and ignominy will cover them – nor will they have anyone to defend them against God – it is as though their faces were veiled with patches of darkest night. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein.
10.28. On that Day, We will raise them all to life and gather them all together, and then We will order those who associated partners with God: "Get to your place, you and your (so-called) associates (of God)!" So did We distinguish between them and the believers, and separate them from their associates. Their associates say to them: "It was not us that you worshipped.
10.29. "God is sufficient as a witness between us and you: we were certainly unaware of your worshipping (us). "
10.30. There, every soul will experience what it did before (in the world). They have been returned to God, their true Owner and Master; and those that they fabricated to worship besides God have failed them.
10.31. Say: "Who is it that provides for you from heaven and earth, or who is it that possesses full power over (your) hearing and eyes; and who is it that brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living, and who directs the whole affair (the universe)?" They will say, "It is God. " Then, say: "Will you not then keep your duty to him in reverence for Him and in fear of His punishment?"
10.32. That is God (Who does all these), Your rightful Lord, the Absolute Truth and Ever-Constant. What is there, after the truth, but error? Then, how are you turned about (to different ways, removed from the Straight Path)?
10.33. Thus has the word of your Lord proved true with regard to those who transgress, that they will not believe.
10.34. Say: "Is there any of your (so-called) associates (of God) who originates creation and then reproduces it, and will bring it forth anew (in another world)?" Say: "God originates creation and then reproduces it, and He will bring it forth anew. How then are you turned away from the truth and make false claims?
10.35. Say: "Is there any of your (so-called) associates (of God) who guides to the truth?" Say: "God alone guides to the truth. Which, then, is worthy to be followed: He Who guides to the truth, or he who cannot find the true way unless he is guided? What, then, is the matter with you, and how do you judge (so wrongly)?"
10.36. Most of them follow only conjecture. Surely conjecture can never substitute for anything of the truth. God surely has full knowledge of all that they do.
10.37. And this Qur'ān is not such that it could possibly be fabricated by one in attribution to God, but it is a (Divine Book) confirming (the Divine origin of, and the truths that are still contained by,) the Revelations prior to it, and an explanation of the Essence of all Divine Books – wherein there is no doubt, from the Lord of the worlds.
10.38. Or do they say that he (the Messenger) has fabricated it? Say: "(If it is possible for a mortal to fabricate it) then produce a sūrah like it, and call for help on anyone you can, apart from God, if you are truthful (in your doubt and the claim you base upon it). "
10.39. No (they are not truthful in their doubt and claim), but they have denied a thing (the Qur'ān) whose knowledge they could not encompass and whose exposition (through the fulfillment of its promises and threats) has not reached them. Even so did those who were before them deny (the Books sent to them). So look! How was the outcome for the wrong-doers (who judged and acted wrongly)?
10.40. Among them (the people of Makkah), there are such as have believed and will believe in it, just as among them, there are such as have not believed and will not believe in it. Your Lord has full knowledge of those who provoke disorder and corruption.
10.41. If (O Messenger) they continue to deny you (regarding the Message you bring), say: "To me are accounted my deeds, and to you, your deeds. You are quit of all that I do, and I am quit of all that you do. "
10.42. Among them are such as come to listen to you, but how can you make the deaf hear, if they do not use their reason to make sense of it?
10.43. Among them are such as look towards you, but how can you guide the blind (to the right way), if they are lacking the power of (in)sight?
10.44. Surely God does not wrong humankind in anything; but humans wrong their own selves.
10.45. On the Day when God will raise them to life and gather them together, it will seem to them that they had not tarried in the world but a short while of the day, knowing one another. Assuredly, those who deny (the truth) that they must encounter God have ruined themselves and have never been guided.
10.46. Whether We let you (O Messenger) witness the fulfillment of some of what We have promised them, or We cause you to die (before it befalls them), still to Us is their return. And God is witness to all that they do.
10.47. Every community has its Messenger: when their Messenger comes, (some believe in him and the others not, and) it is judged between them with absolute justice, and they are not wronged.
10.48. And they say: "When will this promise be fulfilled if you (O believers) are truthful?"
10.49. Say (O Messenger): "I have no power to harm or benefit myself, except by God's will. For every community, there is an appointed term; and when the end of the term falls in, they can neither delay it by any period of time, however short, nor can they hasten it. "
10.50. Say: "Have you ever considered: what (could you do) if God's punishment should come to you by night (unexpectedly), or by day (and you saw it come)? What do the disbelieving criminals have in prospect that they wish it to be hastened?"
