The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the Book and a clear Qur'an. (1) It could be that those who disbelieve will wish that they were Muslims. (2) Leave them alone; let them eat and enjoy themselves the while the hope [of vain delights] beguiles them: for in time they will come to know [the truth]. (3) Whenever We destroyed a town, a definite term had previously been decreed for it. (4) [but remember that] no community can ever forestall [the end of] its term - and neither can they delay [it]. (5) They say: "O thou to whom the Message is being revealed! truly thou art mad (or possessed)! (6) "Why do you not bring angels to us if you are of the truthful ones?" (7) We do not send down the angels (in frivolity); and when We do send them down, We do so with Truth; then people are granted no 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) Indeed, We sent Messengers before thee, among the factions of the ancients, (10) And never came a Messenger to them but they did mock him. (11) This is how We make the mocking* enter the hearts of the guilty. (* The acts of disbelief.) (12) they believe not in it, though the wont of the ancients is already gone. (13) Even if We open a door in the heavens and they ascend through it in broad daylight, (14) they would surely have said, "It is only our eyes that are spellbound! Nay, we have been bewitched! (15)
