Juz 19
This, (Quran), is certainly the revelation from the Lord of the Universe. (192) With it came down the spirit of Faith and Truth- (193) to your heart, so that you will warn (the people of the dangers of disobeying God). (194) In the perspicuous Arabic tongue. (195) This is (indicated) in the Books of earlier people. (196) Is it not evidence enough for them that the learned among the Children of Israel have recognized this [as true]? (197) (But such is their adamance) that had We revealed it to one of the non-Arabs and even if he had recited (this clear Arabic discourse) to them (198) who would have read it to them, they (pagans) would not have believed in it. (199) Thus have We caused it to enter the hearts of the sinners. (200) They will not believe in it until they suffer the painful torment. (201) that will come upon them [on resurrection,] all of a sudden, without their being aware [of its approach]; (202) they say: "Can we be granted some respite?" (203) Seek haste then they with our torment? (204) Seest thou? If We do let them enjoy (this life) for a few years, (205) and then the chastisement of which they were being warned were to come upon them, (206) of what avail will be the provisions of life which they have been granted to enjoy? (207) And We destroyed no township but it had its warners (208) To warn. For We are never unjust. (209) And the Shaitans have not come down with it. (210) for, neither does it suit their ends, nor is it in their power [to impart it to man]: (211) Lo! verily they are banished from the hearing. (212) So call not upon another god with Allah, lest you be of those who are punished. (213) And warn [whomever thou canst reach, beginning with] thy kinsfolk, (214) and extend kindness and affection to those of the believers who follow you. (215) Then if they disobey you, say: "I am innocent of what you do." (216) Have trust in the Mighty, the Merciful, (217) Who observes you when you rise (to pray) (218) and observes your movements among those who prostrate themselves. (219) For it is He Who heareth and knoweth all things. (220) O people, shall I tell you on whom it is that satans descend? (221) They descend upon every sinful liar. (222) who lends an ear to them, and most of them are liars. (223) And the poets -- the perverse follow them; (224) Did you not see that they keep wandering in every valley? (225) And that they say that which they do not? (226) Except those who believe and do the right, and remember God a great deal, who retaliate only when they have been wronged. Yet the oppressors will now come to know through what reversals they will be overthrown! (227)
Almighty Allah's Truth.
