26:2 تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ

These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.
26:3 لَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَفْسَكَ أَلا يَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ

LaAAallaka bakhiAAun nafsaka alla yakoonoo mu/mineena

It may be thou frettest thy soul with grief, that they do not become Believers.
26:4 إِنْ نَشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ آيَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَاقُهُمْ لَهَا خَاضِعِينَ

In nasha/ nunazzil AAalayhim mina alssama-i ayatan fathallat aAAnaquhum laha khadiAAeena

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 وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ ذِكْرٍ مِنَ الرَّحْمَنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلا كَانُوا عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ

But there comes not to them a newly-revealed Message from (Allah) Most Gracious, but they turn away therefrom.
26:6 فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنْبَاءُ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ

Faqad kaththaboo fasaya/teehim anbao ma kanoo bihi yastahzi-oona

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

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

"My breast will be straitened. And my speech may not go (smoothly): so send unto Aaron.
26:14 وَلَهُمْ عَلَيَّ ذَنْبٌ فَأَخَافُ أَنْ يَقْتُلُونِ

WafaAAalta faAAlataka allatee faAAalta waanta mina alkafireena

26:20 قَالَ فَعَلْتُهَا إِذًا وَأَنَا مِنَ الضَّالِّينَ

Qala faAAaltuha ithan waana mina alddalleena

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

Fafarartu minkum lamma khiftukum fawahaba lee rabbee hukman wajaAAalanee mina almursaleena

"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 messengers.

Faalqa AAasahu fa-itha hiya thuAAbanun mubeenun

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

Qala lilmala-i hawlahu inna hatha lasahirun AAaleemun

(Pharaoh) said to the Chiefs around him: "This is indeed a sorcerer well-versed:
26:35 يُرِيدُ أَنْ يُخْرِجَكُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِكُمْ بِسِحْرِهِ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ

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

Qaloo arjih waakhahu waibAAath fee almada-ini hashireena

26:37 يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحَّارٍ عَلِيمٍ

Ya/tooka bikulli sahharin AAaleemin

"And bring up to thee all (our) sorcerers well-versed."
26:38 فَجُمِعَ السَّحَرَةُ لِمِيقَاتِ يَوْمٍ مَعْلُومٍ

FajumiAAa alssaharatu limeeqati yawmin maAAloomin

So the sorcerers were got together for the appointment of a day well-known,
26:39 وَقِيلَ لِلنَّاسِ هَلْ أَنْتُمْ مُجْتَمِعُونَ

Waqeela lilnnasi hal antum mujtamiAAoona

And the people were told: "Are ye (now) assembled?-
26:40 لَعَلَّنَا نَتَّبِعُ السَّحَرَةَ إِنْ كَانُوا هُمُ الْغَالِبِينَ

LaAAallana nattabiAAu alssaharata in kanoo humu alghalibeena

"That we may follow the sorcerers (in religion) if they win?"
26:41 فَلَمَّا جَاءَ السَّحَرَةُ قَالُوا لِفِرْعَوْنَ أَئِنَّ لَنَا لأجْرًا إِنْ كُنَّا نَحْنُ الْغَالِبِينَ

Falamma jaa alssaharatu qaloo lifirAAawna a-inna lana laajran in kunna nahnu alghalibeena

So when the sorcerers arrived, they said to Pharaoh: "Of course - shall we have a (suitable) reward if we win?
26:42 قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإِنَّكُمْ إِذًا لَمِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ

Qala naAAam wa-innakum ithan lamina almuqarrabeena

He said: "Yea, (and more),- for ye shall in that case be (raised to posts) nearest (to my person)."
26:43 قَالَ لَهُمْ مُوسَى أَلْقُوا مَا أَنْتُمْ مُلْقُونَ

Qala lahum moosa alqoo ma antum mulqoona

Moses said to them: "Throw ye - that which ye are about to throw!"
26:44 فَأَلْقَوْا حِبَالَهُمْ وَعِصِيَّهُمْ وَقَالُوا بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الْغَالِبُونَ

Faalqaw hibalahum waAAisiyyahum waqaloo biAAizzati firAAawna inna lanahnu alghaliboona

So they threw their ropes and their rods, and said: "By the might of Pharaoh, it is we who will certainly win!"
26:45 فَأَلْقَى مُوسَى عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ

Faalqa moosa AAasahu fa-itha hiya talqafu ma ya/fikoona

Then Moses threw his rod, when, behold, it straightway swallows up all the falsehoods which they fake!
26:46 فَأُلْقِيَ السَّحَرَةُ سَاجِدِينَ

Faolqiya alssaharatu sajideena

Then did the sorcerers fall down, prostrate in adoration,
26:47 قَالُوا آمَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

Qaloo amanna birabbi alAAalameena

Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the Worlds,
26:48 رَبِّ مُوسَى وَهَارُونَ

Rabbi moosa waharoona

"The Lord of Moses and Aaron."
26:49 قَالَ آمَنْتُمْ لَهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ آذَنَ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحْرَ فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ لأقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ مِنْ خِلافٍ وَلأصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

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! 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!"
26:50 قَالُوا لا ضَيْرَ إِنَّا إِلَى رَبِّنَا مُنْقَلِبُونَ

Qaloo la dayra inna ila rabbina munqaliboona

They said: "No matter! for us, we shall but return to our Lord!
26:51 إِنَّا نَطْمَعُ أَنْ يَغْفِرَ لَنَا رَبُّنَا خَطَايَانَا أَنْ كُنَّا أَوَّلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Inna natmaAAu an yaghfira lana rabbuna khatayana an kunna awwala almu/mineena

"Only, our desire is that our Lord will forgive us our faults, that we may become foremost among the believers!"
26:52 وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى مُوسَى أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِي إِنَّكُمْ مُتَّبَعُونَ

Waawhayna ila moosa an asri biAAibadee innakum muttabaAAoona

By inspiration we told Moses: "Travel by night with my servants; for surely ye shall be pursued."
26:53 فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ

Faarsala firAAawnu fee almada-ini hashireena

Then Pharaoh sent heralds to (all) the Cities,
26:54 إِنَّ هَؤُلاءِ لَشِرْذِمَةٌ قَلِيلُونَ

Inna haola-i lashirthimatun qaleeloona

(Saying): "These (Israelites) are but a small band,
26:55 وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَائِظُونَ

Wa-innahum lana lagha-ithoona

"And they are raging furiously against us;
26:56 وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَاذِرُونَ

Wa-inna lajameeAAun hathiroona

"But we are a multitude amply fore-warned."
26:57 فَأَخْرَجْنَاهُمْ مِنْ جَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ

Faakhrajnahum min jannatin waAAuyoonin

So We expelled them from gardens, springs,
26:58 وَكُنُوزٍ وَمَقَامٍ كَرِيمٍ

Wakunoozin wamaqamin kareemin

Treasures, and every kind of honourable position;
26:59 كَذَلِكَ وَأَوْرَثْنَاهَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ

Kathalika waawrathnaha banee isra-eela

Thus it was, but We made the Children of Israel inheritors of such things.
26:60 فَأَتْبَعُوهُمْ مُشْرِقِينَ

FaatbaAAoohum mushriqeena

So they pursued them at sunrise.
26:61 فَلَمَّا تَرَاءَى الْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ مُوسَى إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ

Falamma taraa aljamAAani qala as-habu moosa inna lamudrakoona

26:62 قَالَ كَلا إِنَّ مَعِيَ رَبِّي سَيَهْدِينِ

Qala kalla inna maAAiya rabbee sayahdeeni

(Moses) said: "By no means! my Lord is with me! Soon will He guide me!"
26:63 فَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَى مُوسَى أَنِ اضْرِبْ بِعَصَاكَ الْبَحْرَ فَانْفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍ كَالطَّوْدِ الْعَظِيمِ

Faawhayna ila moosa ani idrib biAAasaka albahra fainfalaqa fakana kullu firqin kaalttawdi alAAatheemi

Then We told Moses by inspiration: "Strike the sea with thy rod." So it divided, and each separate part became like the huge, firm mass of a mountain.
26:64 وَأَزْلَفْنَا ثَمَّ الآخَرِينَ

Waazlafna thamma al-akhareena

And We made the other party approach thither.
26:65 وَأَنْجَيْنَا مُوسَى وَمَنْ مَعَهُ أَجْمَعِينَ

Waanjayna moosa waman maAAahu ajmaAAeena

We delivered Moses and all who were with him;
26:66 ثُمَّ أَغْرَقْنَا الآخَرِينَ

Thumma aghraqna al-akhareena

But We drowned the others.
26:67 إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ

Inna fee thalika laayatan wama kana aktharuhum mu/mineena

Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe.
26:68 وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ

Wa-inna rabbaka lahuwa alAAazeezu alrraheemu

26:69 وَاتْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ نَبَأَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ

Waotlu AAalayhim nabaa ibraheema

La yu/minoona bihi hatta yarawoo alAAathaba al-aleema

They will not believe in it until they see the grievous Penalty;
26:202 فَيَأْتِيَهُمْ بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لا يَشْعُرُونَ

Faya/tiyahum baghtatan wahum la yashAAuroona

But the (Penalty) will come to them of a sudden, while they perceive it not;
26:203 فَيَقُولُوا هَلْ نَحْنُ مُنْظَرُونَ

Fayaqooloo hal nahnu muntharoona

Then they will say: "Shall we be respited?"
26:204 أَفَبِعَذَابِنَا يَسْتَعْجِلُونَ

AfabiAAathabina yastaAAjiloona

Do they then ask for Our Penalty to be hastened on?
26:205 أَفَرَأَيْتَ إِنْ مَتَّعْنَاهُمْ سِنِينَ

Afaraayta in mattaAAnahum sineena

Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few years,
26:206 ثُمَّ جَاءَهُمْ مَا كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ

Thumma jaahum ma kanoo yooAAadoona

Yet there comes to them at length the (Punishment) which they were promised!
26:207 مَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُمْ مَا كَانُوا يُمَتَّعُونَ

Ma aghna AAanhum ma kanoo yumattaAAoona

It will profit them not that they enjoyed (this life)!
26:208 وَمَا أَهْلَكْنَا مِنْ قَرْيَةٍ إِلا لَهَا مُنْذِرُونَ

Wama ahlakna min qaryatin illa laha munthiroona

Never did We destroy a population, but had its warners -
26:209 ذِكْرَى وَمَا كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ

Thikra wama kunna thalimeena

By way of reminder; and We never are unjust.
26:210 وَمَا تَنَزَّلَتْ بِهِ الشَّيَاطِينُ

Wama tanazzalat bihi alshshayateenu

No evil ones have brought down this (Revelation):
26:211 وَمَا يَنْبَغِي لَهُمْ وَمَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ

Wama yanbaghee lahum wama yastateeAAoona

It would neither suit them nor would they be able (to produce it).
26:212 إِنَّهُمْ عَنِ السَّمْعِ لَمَعْزُولُونَ

Innahum AAani alssamAAi lamaAAzooloona

Indeed they have been removed far from even (a chance of) hearing it.
26:213 فَلا تَدْعُ مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلَهًا آخَرَ فَتَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُعَذَّبِينَ

Fala tadAAu maAAa Allahi ilahan akhara fatakoona mina almuAAaththabeena

So call not on any other god with Allah, or thou wilt be among those under the Penalty.
26:214 وَأَنْذِرْ عَشِيرَتَكَ الأقْرَبِينَ

Waanthir AAasheerataka al-aqrabeena

And admonish thy nearest kinsmen,
26:215 وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Waikhfid janahaka limani ittabaAAaka mina almu/mineena

And lower thy wing to the Believers who follow thee.
26:216 فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّي بَرِيءٌ مِمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

Fa-in AAasawka faqul innee baree-on mimma taAAmaloona

Then if they disobey thee, say: "I am free (of responsibility) for what ye do!"
26:217 وَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى الْعَزِيزِ الرَّحِيمِ

Watawakkal AAala alAAazeezi alrraheemi

And put thy trust on the Exalted in Might, the Merciful,-
26:218 الَّذِي يَرَاكَ حِينَ تَقُومُ

Allathee yaraka heena taqoomu

Who seeth thee standing forth (in prayer),
26:219 وَتَقَلُّبَكَ فِي السَّاجِدِينَ

Wataqallubaka fee alssajideena

And thy movements among those who prostrate themselves,
26:220 إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

Innahu huwa alssameeAAu alAAaleemu

For it is He Who heareth and knoweth all things.
26:221 هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ عَلَى مَنْ تَنَزَّلُ الشَّيَاطِينُ

Hal onabbi-okum AAala man tanazzalu alshshayateenu

Shall I inform you, (O people!), on whom it is that the evil ones descend?
26:222 تَنَزَّلُ عَلَى كُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍ

Tanazzalu AAala kulli affakin atheemin

They descend on every lying, wicked person,
26:223 يُلْقُونَ السَّمْعَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ كَاذِبُونَ

Yulqoona alssamAAa waaktharuhum kathiboona

(Into whose ears) they pour hearsay vanities, and most of them are liars.
26:224 وَالشُّعَرَاءُ يَتَّبِعُهُمُ الْغَاوُونَ

WaalshshuAAarao yattabiAAuhumu alghawoona

And the Poets,- It is those straying in Evil, who follow them:
26:225 أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّهُمْ فِي كُلِّ وَادٍ يَهِيمُونَ

Alam tara annahum fee kulli wadin yaheemoona

Seest thou not that they wander distracted in every valley?-
26:226 وَأَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ مَا لا يَفْعَلُونَ

Waannahum yaqooloona ma la yafAAaloona

And that they say what they practise not?-
26:227 إِلا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَذَكَرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَانْتَصَرُوا مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا ظُلِمُوا وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ

Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati wathakaroo Allaha katheeran waintasaroo min baAAdi ma thulimoo wasayaAAlamu allatheena thalamoo ayya munqalabin yanqaliboona

Except those who believe, work righteousness, engage much in the remembrance of Allah, and defend themselves only after they are unjustly attacked. And soon will the unjust assailants know what vicissitudes their affairs will take!
