Sura Ya-Sin
Sheikh / Mohammad Ayyoob

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    36:1-6 Ya Sin. By the Quran full of wisdom, lo! You are of those sent on a straight path, a revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful , that you may warn a folk whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless .

    36:7-11 Already has the word proved true of most of them, for they believe not. Lo! We have put on their necks shackles reaching to the chins, so that they are made stiff necked. And We have set a bar before them and a bar behind them, and (thus) have covered them so that they see not. Whether you warn them or you warn them not, it is alike for them, for they believe not. You warn only him who follows the Reminder and fears the Beneficent in secret. To him bear tidings of forgiveness and a rich reward.

    36:12 Lo! We it is Who bring the dead to life. We record that which they send before (them), and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear register.

    36:13-19 Coin for them a similitude: The people of the city when those sent (from God) came to them; when We sent to them both, and they denied them both, so We reinforced them with a third, and they said; Lo! We have been sent to you. They said: You are but mortals like to us. The Beneficent has revealed nothing. You do but lie! They answered: Our Lord knows that we are indeed sent to you, and our duty is but plain conveyance (of the message). (The people of the city) said: We augur ill of you. If you desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands. They said: Your evil augury be with you! Is it because you are reminded (of the truth)? Nay, but you are froward folk?

    36:20-27 And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running. He cried: O my people! Follow those who have been sent! Follow those who ask of you no fee, and who are rightly guided. For what cause should I not worship Him Who has created me, and to Whom you will be brought back? Shall I take (other) gods in place of Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me any harm, their intercession will avail me nothing, nor can they save? Then truly I should be in error manifest. Lo! I have believed in your Lord, so hear me! It was said (to him): Enter Paradise. He said: Would that my people knew with what (munificence) my Lord has pardoned me and made me of the honored ones!

    36:28-32 We sent not down against his people after him a host from heaven, nor do We ever send. It was but one shout, and lo! They were extinct. Ah, the anguish for the bondmen! Never came there to them a Messenger but they did mock him! Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which indeed return not to them; but all, without exception, will be brought before Us.

    36:33-36 A sign to them is the dead earth. We revive it, and We bring forth from it grain so that they eat thereof; and We have placed therein gardens of the date palm and grapes, and We have caused springs of water to gush forth therein. That they may eat of the fruit thereof, and their hand made it not. Will they not, then, give thanks? Glory be to Him Who created all the sexual pairs, of that which the earth grows, and of themselves, and of that which they know not!

    36:37-38 A sign to them is night. We strip it of the day, and lo! They are in darkness. And the sun runs on to a resting place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.

    36:39-40 And for the moon We have appointed mansions till she return like an old shriveled palm leaf. It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They float each in an orbit.

    36:41-45 And a sign to them is that We bear their offspring in the laden ship, and have created for them of the like thereof whereon they ride. And if We will, We drown them, and there is no help for them, neither can they be saved; unless by mercy from Us and as comfort for a while. When it is said to them: Beware of that which is before you and that which is behind you, that perhaps you may find mercy (they are heedless).

    36:46-48 Never came a sign of the signs of their Lord to them, but they did turn away from it! And when it is said to them: Spend of that wherewith God has provided you, those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Shall we feed those whom God, if He willed, would feed? You are in nothing else than error manifest. And they say: When will this promise be fulfilled, if you are truthful?

    36:49-52 They await but one shout, which will surprise them while they are disputing. Then they cannot make bequest, nor can they return to their own folk. And the Trumpet is blown and lo! From the graves they come to their Lord, crying: Woe upon us! Who has raised us from our place of sleep? This is that which the Beneficent did promise, and the Messengers spoke truth.

    36:53-54 It is but one shout, and behold them brought together before Us! This Day no soul is wronged in anything; nor are you requited anything except what you used to do.

    36:55-58 Lo! Those who merit Paradise this day are happily employed, they and their wives, in pleasant shade, on thrones reclining; theirs the fruit (of their good deeds) and theirs (all) that they ask; the word from a Merciful Lord (for them) is: Peace!

    36:59-64 O you guilty ones stand apart this day! Did I not charge you, O you sons of Adam, that you worship not Satan – Lo! He is your open foe! – but that you worship Me? That was the right path. Yet he has led astray of you a great multitude. Had you then no sense? This is Hell, which you were promised (if you followed him). Burn therein this Day for that you disbelieved.

    36:65-68 This Day We seal up mouths, and hands speak out and feet bear witness as to what they used to earn. And had We willed, We verily could have quenched their eyesight so that they should struggle for the way. Then how could they have seen? And had We willed, We verily could have fixed them in their place, making them powerless to go forward or turn back. He whom We bring to old age, We reverse him in creation (making him go back to weakness after strength). Have you then no sense?

    36:69-70 And we have not taught him (Muhammad) poetry, nor is it appropriate for him. This is nothing else than a Reminder and a Lecture making plain, to warn whosoever lives, and that the word may be fulfilled against the disbelievers.

    36:71-73 Have they not seen how We have created for them of Our handiwork the cattle, so that they are their owners, and have subdued them to them, so that some of them they have for riding, some for food? Benefits and (diverse) drinks have they from them. Will they not then give thanks?

    36:74-75 And they have taken (other) gods beside God, in order that they may be helped. It is not in their power to help them; but they (the worshippers) are to them a host in arms.

    36:76 So let not their speech grieve you (O Muhammad). Lo! We know what they conceal and what proclaim.

    36:77-81 Has not man seen that We have created him from a drop of seed? Yet lo! He is an open opponent. And he has coined for Us a similitude, and has forgotten the fact of his creation, saying: Who will revive these bones when they have rotted away? Say: He will revive them Who produced them at the first, for He is Knower of every creation, Who has appointed for you fire from the green tree, and behold! You kindle from it. Is not He Who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the like of them? Aye, that He is! For He is the All-Wise Creator,

    36:82-83 But His command, when He intends a thing, is only that he says to it: Be! And it is. Therefore glory be to Him in Whose Hand is the dominion over all things! To Him you will be brought back.
