The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Alif. Lam. Ra. THESE ARE MESSAGES of revelation - of a discourse clear in itself and clearly showing the truth. (1) The disbelievers will ardently wish that if only they had been Muslims! (At the time of death / in their graves / on the Day of Resurrection.) (2) Leave them to eat and enjoy life and let false hopes amuse them. They will soon come to know. (3) We have never destroyed a township without a definite decree having been issued; (4) [but remember that] no community can ever forestall [the end of] its term - and neither can they delay [it]. (5) And they say, "O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad. (6) Why bringest thou not angels unto us, if thou art of the truthful? (7) We do not send down the angels except with truth; and the disbelievers would not then be reprieved. (8) It is We who sent down the Koran, and We watch over it. (9) And indeed We sent Noble Messengers before you, to the former nations. (10) And whenever a Messenger came to them, they never failed to mock him. (11) Even so do we let it creep into the hearts of the sinners - (12) They believe not therein, and already the example of the ancients hath gone forth. (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 only say: "Our eyes have been intoxicated: Nay, we have been bewitched by sorcery." (15)
