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
۞ Alif. Lam. Ra'. These are the verses of the Book, and a Clear Qur'an. (1) Oft times would those who disbelieve fain that they had been Muslims. (2) Leave them to eat and enjoy life and let false hopes amuse them. They will soon come to know. (3) We never destroyed a village whose term had not already been decreed. (4) Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it. (5) And they say: O thou unto whom the admonition hath been sent down! verily thou art possessed. (6) Why dost thou not bring before us angels, if thou art a man of truth? (7) We send not the angels down except with the truth (i.e. for torment, etc.), and in that case, they (the disbelievers) would have no 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) (O Muhammad), certainly We did send Messengers before you among the nations which have gone by. (10) But no Messenger came to them except he was mocked. (11) This is how We cause the hearts of the guilty ones to behave. (12) They believe not therein, and already the example of the ancients hath gone forth. (13) And even if We opened unto them a gate of heaven and they kept mounting through it, (14) They would surely say: intoxicated have been our sights; aye! we are a people enchanted. (15)
