The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ Alif Lam Ra. These are the verses of a clear Book, the Quran. (1) A time will surely come when those who are bent on denying the truth will wish that they had surrendered themselves to God, (2) Leave them thou to eat and to enjoy, and let vain hope divert them; presently they will know. (3) Never did We destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned beforehand. (4) No people can hasten on their doom nor can they postpone (it). (5) They say: "O you to whom the Admonition has been revealed, you are surely crazed. (6) “Why do you not bring angels to us, if you are truthful?” (7) We do not send angels except with the truth. Then they shall have no respite. (8) As for the Admonition, indeed it is We Who have revealed it and it is indeed We Who are its guardians. (9) AND, INDEED, [O Prophet,] even before thy time did We send [Our apostles] unto communities of old (10) And never does a Noble Messenger come to them, but they mock at him. (11) Thus do We insert denial into the hearts of the criminals. (12) They do not believe in it, and indeed the example of the former people has already passed. (13) And even if We open to them a gateway of heaven, so that they ascend into it all the while, (14) They would say: Our sight is wrong - nay, but we are folk bewitched. (15)
