Yusuf Ali A Book revealed unto thee,- So let thy heart be oppressed no more by any difficulty on that account,- that with it thou mightest warn (the erring) and teach the Believers).
7 : 3
Yusuf Ali Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition.
7 : 4
Yusuf Ali How many towns have We destroyed (for their sins)? Our punishment took them on a sudden by night or while they slept for their afternoon rest.
7 : 5
Yusuf Ali When (thus) Our punishment took them, no cry did they utter but this: "Indeed we did wrong."
7 : 6
Yusuf Ali Then shall we question those to whom Our message was sent and those by whom We sent it.
7 : 7
Yusuf Ali And verily, We shall recount their whole story with knowledge, for We were never absent (at any time or place).
7 : 8
Yusuf Ali The balance that day will be true (to nicety): those whose scale (of good) will be heavy, will prosper:
7 : 9
Yusuf Ali Those whose scale will be light, will be their souls in perdition, for that they wrongfully treated Our signs.
7 : 10
Yusuf Ali It is We Who have placed you with authority on earth, and provided you therein with means for the fulfilment of your life: small are the thanks that ye give!
7 : 11
Yusuf Ali It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels prostrate to Adam, and they prostrate; not so Iblis; He refused to be of those who prostrate.
7 : 12
Yusuf Ali (Allah) said: "What prevented thee from prostrating when I commanded thee?" He said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay."
7 : 13
Yusuf Ali (Allah) said: "Get thee down from this: it is not for thee to be arrogant here: get out, for thou art of the meanest (of creatures)."
7 : 14
Yusuf Ali He said: "Give me respite till the day they are raised up."
7 : 15
Yusuf Ali (Allah) said: "Be thou among those who have respite."
7 : 16
Yusuf Ali He said: "Because thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on thy straight way:
7 : 17
Yusuf Ali "Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies)."
7 : 18
Yusuf Ali (Allah) said: "Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee,- Hell will I fill with you all.
7 : 19
Yusuf Ali "O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, and enjoy (its good things) as ye wish: but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression."
7 : 20
Yusuf Ali Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said: "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such beings as live for ever."
