[Yaa-Seen 36:28] And after him, We did not send down any army from heaven against his people, nor did We intend to send down an army.

[Yaa-Seen 36:29] It was just one scream, and with it they were extinguished.

[Yaa-Seen 36:30] And it was said, “Woe to those bondmen - whenever a Noble Messenger comes to them, they mock at him!”

[Yaa-Seen 36:31] Have they not seen how many generations We destroyed before them, which will not return to them?

[Yaa-Seen 36:32] And without exception, all of them will be brought forth before Us.


Section 3

[Yaa-Seen 36:33] And a sign for them is the dead earth; We gave it life and We produced from it grain, so they eat from it.

[Yaa-Seen 36:34] And We have placed in it gardens of dates and grapes, and We have made springs of water in it.

[Yaa-Seen 36:35] So that they may eat from its fruits, whereas they are not manufactured by their hands! So will they not be grateful?

[Yaa-Seen 36:36] Purity is to Him Who created all pairs, from what the earth grows, and of themselves, and from the things they do not know.

[Yaa-Seen 36:37] And a sign for them is the night; We strip the day out of it, thereupon they are in darkness.

[Yaa-Seen 36:38] And the sun runs its course for its final destination; this is a command of the Almighty, the All Knowing.

[Yaa-Seen 36:39] And We have appointed positions for the moon till it returns like an old branch of the date palm.

[Yaa-Seen 36:40] It is not for the sun to catch up with the moon, nor does the night surpass the day; and each one of them floats in its orbit.
