The Hijjr Valley (Al-Hijjr)
99 verses, revealed in Mecca after Joseph (Yousuf) before Animals (Al-An 'aam)
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
۞ ALIF LAM RA. These are the verses of the Book and the perspicuous oration. (1) Oft times would those who disbelieve fain that they had been 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) No nation can outstrip its term, nor do they put it back. (5) And yet they say: "You, to whom this Exposition has been sent are surely possessed of the Devil. (6) Why do you not bring us the angels, if you should be among the 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) It is We who sent down the Koran, and We watch over it. (9) Indeed, We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad SAW) amongst the sects (communities) of old. (10) But no Messenger came to them except he was mocked. (11) Even so do We [now] cause this [scorn of Our message] to pervade the hearts of those who are lost in sin, (12) They do not believe in it, and indeed the example of the former people has already passed. (13) Even if We opened out to them a gate from heaven, and they were to continue (all day) ascending therein, (14) yet would they say, 'Our eyes have been dazzled; nay, we are a people bewitched!'
