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 the Book and the perspicuous oration. (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 thou to eat and to enjoy, and let vain hope divert them; presently they will know. (3) We never destroyed a village whose term had not already been decreed. (4) No nation can 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 do you not bring us the angels, if you should be among the truthful?" (7) We do not send angels except with the truth. Then they shall have no respite. (8) Behold, it is We Ourselves who have bestowed from on high, step by step, this reminder; and behold, it is We who shall truly guard it [from all corruption]. (9) We did send messengers before thee amongst the religious sects of old: (10) And not an apostle came unto them but at him they were wont to mock. (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) Even if We opened out to them a gate from heaven, and they were to continue (all day) ascending therein, (14) they would still say, "Our eyes have been dazzled. We are bewitched." (15)
