The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
۞ A. L. R. These are the Ayats of Revelation,- of a Qur'an that makes things clear. (1) The unbelievers would haply like to wish that they had submitted (and become Muslim). (2) Let them eat and enjoy themselves and be diverted by [false] hope, for they are going to know. (3) Never did We destroy a population that had not a term decreed and assigned beforehand. (4) No people can outstrip the term for its destruction nor can it delay it. (5) And they say: O thou unto whom the admonition hath been sent down! verily thou art possessed. (6) Why do you not bring down the angels upon us, if you are truthful?" (7) [Yet] We never send down angels otherwise than in accordance with the [demands of] truth; and [were the angels to appear now,] lo! they [who reject this divine writ] would have no further respite! (8) Behold, it is We Ourselves who have bestowed from on high, step by step, this reminder; and behold, it is We who shall truly guard it [from all corruption]. (9) And assuredly We have sent apostles before thee among the sects of the ancients. (10) And no messenger would come to them except that they ridiculed him. (11) Thus do We insert denial into the hearts of the criminals. (12) they believe not in it, though the wont of the ancients is already gone. (13) And even if We open to them a gateway of heaven, so that they ascend into it all the while, (14) They would surely say: intoxicated have been our sights; aye! we are a people enchanted. (15)
