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 Most Merciful
۞ Alif Lam Ra. These are the verses of a clear Book, the Quran. (1) Perchance the unbelievers will wish that they had surrendered: (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) And never did We destroy a town but it had a term made known. (4) Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it. (5) And they say: O thou unto whom the Reminder is revealed, lo! thou art indeed a madman! (6) "Why bringest thou not angels to us if it be that thou hast the Truth?" (7) We do not send down angels except for a genuine purpose, at which time none will be given any further respite. (8) Indeed We have sent down the Qur’an, and indeed We Ourselves surely are its Guardians. (This is one of the miracles of the Qur’an no one has been able to change even one letter of its text, despite every effort. It has remained in its original form since the 6th Century (A. D) and will remain so forever. Other Holy Books such as the Torah and the Bible have lost their originality.) (9) And assuredly We have sent apostles before thee among the sects of the ancients. (10) And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him. (11) Thus do We insert denial into the hearts of the criminals. (12) They do not believe in him, and the tradition of earlier nations has passed. (13) Yet even had We opened to them a gateway to heaven and they had ascended, on and on, up to it, (14) they would still say, "Our eyes have been dazzled. We are bewitched." (15)
