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 the verses of a clear Book, the Quran. (1) A time will surely come when those who are bent on denying the truth will wish that they had surrendered themselves to God, (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) Neither can a people anticipate its term, nor delay it. (5) And yet, they [who deny the truth] say: "O thou unto whom this reminder has [allegedly] been bestowed from on high: verily, thou art mad! (6) Why do you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones? (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) Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Quran) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (9) We did send messengers before thee amongst the religious sects of old: (10) But never once an apostle came to them at whom they did not scoff. (11) Thus do We make it traverse the hearts of the guilty: (12) they believe not in it, though the wont of the ancients is already gone. (13) If We were even to open for them a way to the heavens, and they could continually climb up to it in broad daylight, (14) They would only say: "Our eyes have been intoxicated: Nay, we have been bewitched by sorcery."
