AL-SHUA`RA (THE POETS)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[Shua`ra 26:1] Ta-Seen-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language – Allah, and to whomever he reveals, know their precise meanings.)
[Shua`ra 26:2] These are verses of the clear Book.
[Shua`ra 26:3] Possibly you may risk your life (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) by grieving, because they did not believe.
[Shua`ra 26:4] If We will, We can send down on them a sign from the sky so that their leaders would remain bowed before it.
[Shua`ra 26:5] And never does a new advice come to them from the Most Gracious, but they turn away from it.
[Shua`ra 26:6] Indeed they have denied, so now soon coming upon them are the tidings of what they used to scoff at.
[Shua`ra 26:7] Have they not seen the earth, that how many honourable pairs We have created in it?
[Shua`ra 26:8] Indeed in this is a sign; and most of them will not accept faith.
[Shua`ra 26:9] And indeed your Lord – indeed only He is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
[Shua`ra 26:10] And (remember) when your Lord said to Moosa, “Go to the unjust people.”
[Shua`ra 26:11] “The nation of Firaun; will they not fear?”
[Shua`ra 26:12] He said, “My Lord, I fear that they will deny me.”
[Shua`ra 26:13] “I feel hesitant, and my tongue does not speak fast, therefore make Haroon also a Noble Messenger.”
[Shua`ra 26:14] “And they have an accusation against me, so I fear that they may kill me.”
[Shua`ra 26:15] He said, “Not like this (any more); both of you go with Our signs, We are with you, All Hearing.”
[Shua`ra 26:16] “Therefore approach Firaun then proclaim, ‘We both are Noble Messengers of the Lord Of The Creation.’
[Shua`ra 26:17] ‘That you let the Descendants of Israel go with us.’ ”
[Shua`ra 26:18] Said Firaun, “Did we do not raise you amongst us, as a child? And you spent many years of your life among us!”
[Shua`ra 26:19] “And you committed the deed of yours that
you committed, and you were ungrateful.”
