Qur'an 26:1[edit]

Ta, Seen, Meem.

Qur'an 26:1 Notes[edit]

Random letters no one understands.

Qur'an 26:2[edit]

These are the Verses of the Clarifying Book.

Qur'an 26:2 Notes[edit]

What exactly does it clarify?

Qur'an 26:3[edit]

Perhaps you will destroy yourself with grief, because they do not become believers.

Qur'an 26:3 Notes[edit]

Muhammed apparantly is really frustrated here that many Arab clans didn't believe his nonsense.

Qur'an 26:4[edit]

If We will, We can send down upon them a sign from heaven, at which their necks will stay bent in humility.

Qur'an 26:4 Notes[edit]

Too bad that sign never came and he forced them to believe under threat.

Qur'an 26:5[edit]

No fresh reminder comes to them from the Most Merciful, but they turn their backs at it.

Qur'an 26:5 Notes[edit]

I guess those signs never came.

Qur'an 26:6[edit]

They have denied the truth, but soon will come to them the news of what they ridiculed.

Qur'an 26:6 Notes[edit]

Truth? Evidence please.

Qur'an 26:7[edit]

Have they not seen the earth, and how many beautiful pairs We produced therein?

Qur'an 26:7 Notes[edit]

That isn't evidence.

Qur'an 26:8[edit]

Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:8 Notes[edit]

No, the fact that there are interesting things on Earth isn't proof of a singular god.

Qur'an 26:9[edit]

Most surely, your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

Qur'an 26:9 Notes[edit]

There is nothing sure about that.

Qur'an 26:10[edit]

Your Lord called to Moses, “Go to the tyrannical people.

Qur'an 26:10 Notes[edit]

Plagerising from the bible here.

Qur'an 26:11[edit]

The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear?”

Qur'an 26:11 Notes[edit]

This must have been confusing for people unfamiliar with the stories.

Qur'an 26:12[edit]

He said, “My Lord, I fear they will reject me.

Qur'an 26:12 Notes[edit]

This is new.

Qur'an 26:13[edit]

And I become stressed, and my tongue is not fluent, so send Aaron too.

Qur'an 26:13 Notes[edit]

He needed back up.

Qur'an 26:14[edit]

And they have a charge against me, so I fear they will kill me.”

Qur'an 26:14 Notes[edit]

It was a murderous time it seems.

Qur'an 26:15[edit]

He said, “No. Go, both of you, with Our proofs. We will be with you, listening.

Qur'an 26:15 Notes[edit]

What proof?

Qur'an 26:16[edit]

Go to Pharaoh, and say, ‘We are the Messengers of the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:16 Notes[edit]

Anyone can claim to be a messenger.

Qur'an 26:17[edit]

Let the Children of Israel go with us.'“

Qur'an 26:17 Notes[edit]

Let my people go!

Qur'an 26:18[edit]

He said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you stayed among us for many of your years?

Qur'an 26:18 Notes[edit]

I guess the answer is no.

Qur'an 26:19[edit]

And you committed that deed you committed, and you were ungrateful.”

Qur'an 26:19 Notes[edit]

Ungrateful for being ungrateful slaves.

Qur'an 26:20[edit]

He said, “I did it then, when I was of those astray.

Qur'an 26:20 Notes[edit]

Turns out there is little evidence in fact that Israelites were mass enslaved in Egypt.

Qur'an 26:21[edit]

And I fled from you when I feared you; but my Lord gave me wisdom, and made me one of the messengers.

Qur'an 26:21 Notes[edit]

But then, there is little evidence for most holy fables.

Qur'an 26:22[edit]

Is that the favor you taunt me with, although you have enslaved the Children of Israel?”

Qur'an 26:22 Notes[edit]

Again, there is doubt about this.

Qur'an 26:23[edit]

Pharaoh said, “And what is the Lord of the Worlds?”

Qur'an 26:23 Notes[edit]

Smart Pharoah, asking for proof.

Qur'an 26:24[edit]

He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, if you are aware.”

Qur'an 26:24 Notes[edit]

Aware of what?

Qur'an 26:25[edit]

He said to those around him, “Do you not hear?”

Qur'an 26:25 Notes[edit]

I guess not.

Qur'an 26:26[edit]

He said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors of old.”

Qur'an 26:26 Notes[edit]

An allusion to the other gods.

Qur'an 26:27[edit]

He said, “This messenger of yours, who is sent to you, is crazy.”

Qur'an 26:27 Notes[edit]

Smart pharoah.

Qur'an 26:28[edit]

He said, “Lord of the East and the West, and everything between them, if you understand.”

Qur'an 26:28 Notes[edit]

I guess he doesn't understand.

Qur'an 26:29[edit]

He said, “If you accept any god other than me, I will make you a prisoner.”

Qur'an 26:29 Notes[edit]

Thought control. Religion control.

Qur'an 26:30[edit]

He said, “What if I bring you something convincing?”

Qur'an 26:30 Notes[edit]

Proof would be nice.

Qur'an 26:31[edit]

He said, “Bring it, if you are being truthful.”

Qur'an 26:31 Notes[edit]

He is being tested of his magic abilities.

Qur'an 26:32[edit]

So he cast his staff; and it was a serpent, plain to see.

Qur'an 26:32 Notes[edit]

Oh wow...a miracle!

Qur'an 26:33[edit]

And he pulled his hand; and it was white, for all to see.

Qur'an 26:33 Notes[edit]


Qur'an 26:34[edit]

He said to the dignitaries around him, “This is a skilled magician.

Qur'an 26:34 Notes[edit]

Zheesh is he ever. Turning staffs into serpents?

Qur'an 26:35[edit]

He intends to drive you out of your land with his magic, so what do you recommend?”

Qur'an 26:35 Notes[edit]

Hard to realise here, but this means there is competition on the magic stage.

Qur'an 26:36[edit]

They said, “Delay him and his brother, and send recruiters to the cities.

Qur'an 26:36 Notes[edit]

To get other magicians (I am not joking here)

Qur'an 26:37[edit]

To bring you every experienced magician.”

Qur'an 26:37 Notes[edit]

It's a bloody Harry Potter showdown! I am not joking.

Qur'an 26:38[edit]

So the magicians were gathered for the appointment on a specified day.

Qur'an 26:38 Notes[edit]

Get out your wands!

Qur'an 26:39[edit]

And it was said to the people, “Are you all gathered?

Qur'an 26:39 Notes[edit]

There would have been a god damn mob watching this.

Qur'an 26:40[edit]

That we may follow the magicians, if they are the winners.”

Qur'an 26:40 Notes[edit]

And so it begins

Qur'an 26:41[edit]

When the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, “Is there a reward for us, if we are the winners?”

Qur'an 26:41 Notes[edit]

That is how competitions work

Qur'an 26:42[edit]

He said, “Yes, and you will be among those favored.”

Qur'an 26:42 Notes[edit]

So it's like, no prize, just the glory.

Qur'an 26:43[edit]

Moses said to them, “Present what you intend to present.”

Qur'an 26:43 Notes[edit]

Bring it on!

Qur'an 26:44[edit]

So they threw their ropes and their sticks, and said, “By the majesty of Pharaoh, we will be the winners.”

Qur'an 26:44 Notes[edit]


Qur'an 26:45[edit]

Then Moses threw his staff, and behold, it began swallowing their trickery.

Qur'an 26:45 Notes[edit]

Dumbeldore beats he whose name we do not say.

Qur'an 26:46[edit]

And the magicians fell down prostrating.

Qur'an 26:46 Notes[edit]

So amazed, they just converted to Judaism! Trick people into thinking an illusion is magic, and your religion wins.

Qur'an 26:47[edit]

They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:47 Notes[edit]

That's a really rapid full out conversion!

Qur'an 26:48[edit]

The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”

Qur'an 26:48 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:49[edit]

He said, “Did you believe in Him before I have given you permission? He must be your chief, who taught you magic. You will soon know. I will cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will crucify you all.”

Qur'an 26:49 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:50[edit]

They said, “No problem. To our Lord we will return.

Qur'an 26:50 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:51[edit]

We are eager for our Lord to forgive us our sins, since we are the first of the believers.”

Qur'an 26:51 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:52[edit]

And We inspired Moses: “Travel with My servants by night. You will be followed.”

Qur'an 26:52 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:53[edit]

Pharaoh sent heralds to the cities.

Qur'an 26:53 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:54[edit]

“These are a small gang.

Qur'an 26:54 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:55[edit]

And they are enraging us.

Qur'an 26:55 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:56[edit]

But we are a vigilant multitude.”

Qur'an 26:56 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:57[edit]

So We drove them out of gardens and springs.

Qur'an 26:57 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:58[edit]

And treasures and noble dwellings.

Qur'an 26:58 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:59[edit]

So it was. And We made the Children of Israel inherit them.

Qur'an 26:59 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:60[edit]

And they pursued them at sunrise.

Qur'an 26:60 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:61[edit]

When the two groups sighted each other, the followers of Moses said, “We are being overtaken.”

Qur'an 26:61 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:62[edit]

He said, “No; my Lord is with me, He will guide me.”

Qur'an 26:62 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:63[edit]

We inspired Moses: “Strike the sea with your staff.” Whereupon it parted, and each part was like a huge hill.

Qur'an 26:63 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:64[edit]

And there We brought the others near.

Qur'an 26:64 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:65[edit]

And We saved Moses and those with him, all together.

Qur'an 26:65 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:66[edit]

Then We drowned the others.

Qur'an 26:66 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:67[edit]

In that there is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:67 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:68[edit]

Surely, your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

Qur'an 26:68 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:69[edit]

And relate to them the story of Abraham.

Qur'an 26:69 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:70[edit]

When he said to his father and his people, “What do you worship?”

Qur'an 26:70 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:71[edit]

They said, “We worship idols, and we remain devoted to them.”

Qur'an 26:71 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:72[edit]

He said, “Do they hear you when you pray?

Qur'an 26:72 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:73[edit]

Or do they benefit you, or harm you?”

Qur'an 26:73 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:74[edit]

They said, “But we found our ancestors doing so.”

Qur'an 26:74 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:75[edit]

He said, “Have you considered what you worship.

Qur'an 26:75 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:76[edit]

You and your ancient ancestors?

Qur'an 26:76 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:77[edit]

They are enemies to me, but not so the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:77 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:78[edit]

He who created me, and guides me.

Qur'an 26:78 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:79[edit]

He who feeds me, and waters me.

Qur'an 26:79 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:80[edit]

And when I get sick, He heals me.

Qur'an 26:80 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:81[edit]

He who makes me die, and then revives me.

Qur'an 26:81 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:82[edit]

He who, I hope, will forgive my sins on the Day of the Reckoning.”

Qur'an 26:82 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:83[edit]

“My Lord! Grant me wisdom, and include me with the righteous.

Qur'an 26:83 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:84[edit]

And give me a reputation of truth among the others.

Qur'an 26:84 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:85[edit]

And make me of the inheritors of the Garden of Bliss.

Qur'an 26:85 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:86[edit]

And forgive my father—he was one of the misguided.

Qur'an 26:86 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:87[edit]

And do not disgrace me on the Day they are resurrected.

Qur'an 26:87 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:88[edit]

The Day when neither wealth nor children will help.

Qur'an 26:88 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:89[edit]

Except for him who comes to God with a sound heart.”

Qur'an 26:89 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:90[edit]

And Paradise will be brought near for the righteous.

Qur'an 26:90 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:91[edit]

And the Blaze will be displayed to the deviators.

Qur'an 26:91 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:92[edit]

And it will be said to them, “Where are those you used to worship?”

Qur'an 26:92 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:93[edit]

Besides God? Can they help you, or help themselves?”

Qur'an 26:93 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:94[edit]

Then they will be toppled into it, together with the seducers.

Qur'an 26:94 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:95[edit]

And the soldiers of Satan, all of them.

Qur'an 26:95 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:96[edit]

They will say, as they feud in it.

Qur'an 26:96 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:97[edit]

“By God, We were in evident error.

Qur'an 26:97 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:98[edit]

For equating you with the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:98 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:99[edit]

No one misled us except the sinners.

Qur'an 26:99 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:100[edit]

Now we have no intercessors.

Qur'an 26:100 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:101[edit]

And no sincere friend.

Qur'an 26:101 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:102[edit]

If only we could have another chance, we would be among the faithful.”

Qur'an 26:102 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:103[edit]

Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:103 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:104[edit]

Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

Qur'an 26:104 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:105[edit]

The people of Noah disbelieved the messengers.

Qur'an 26:105 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:106[edit]

Their brother Noah said to them, “Do you not fear?

Qur'an 26:106 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:107[edit]

I am to you a faithful messenger.

Qur'an 26:107 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:108[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:108 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:109[edit]

I ask of you no payment for this. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:109 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:110[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.”

Qur'an 26:110 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:111[edit]

They said, “Shall we believe in you, when it is the lowliest who follow you?”

Qur'an 26:111 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:112[edit]

He said, “What do I know about what they do?

Qur'an 26:112 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:113[edit]

Their account rests only with my Lord, if you have sense.

Qur'an 26:113 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:114[edit]

And I am not about to drive away the believers.

Qur'an 26:114 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:115[edit]

I am only a clear warner.”

Qur'an 26:115 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:116[edit]

They said, “If you do not refrain, O Noah, you will be stoned.”

Qur'an 26:116 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:117[edit]

He said, “My Lord, my people have denied me.

Qur'an 26:117 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:118[edit]

So judge between me and them decisively, and deliver me and the believers who are with me.

Qur'an 26:118 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:119[edit]

So We delivered him and those with him in the laden Ark.

Qur'an 26:119 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:120[edit]

Then We drowned the rest.

Qur'an 26:120 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:121[edit]

In that is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:121 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:122[edit]

Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

Qur'an 26:122 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:125[edit]

I am to you a faithful messenger.

Qur'an 26:126[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:126 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:127[edit]

I ask of you no payment for this. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:127 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:128[edit]

Do you build a monument on every height for vanity's sake?

Qur'an 26:128 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:129[edit]

And you set up fortresses, hoping to live forever?

Qur'an 26:129 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:130[edit]

And when you strike, you strike mercilessly?

Qur'an 26:130 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:131[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:131 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:132[edit]

And reverence Him, who supplied you with everything you know.

Qur'an 26:132 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:133[edit]

He supplied you with livestock and children.

Qur'an 26:133 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:134[edit]

And gardens and springs.

Qur'an 26:134 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:135[edit]

I fear for you the punishment of an awesome Day.”

Qur'an 26:135 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:136[edit]

They said, “It is the same for us, whether you lecture us, or do not lecture.

Qur'an 26:136 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:137[edit]

This is nothing but morals of the ancients.

Qur'an 26:137 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:138[edit]

And we will not be punished.”

Qur'an 26:138 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:139[edit]

So they denied him, and We destroyed them. Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:139 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:143[edit]

I am to you a faithful messenger.

Qur'an 26:143 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:144[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:144 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:145[edit]

I ask of you no payment for it. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:145 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:146[edit]

Will you be left secure in what is here?

Qur'an 26:146 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:147[edit]

In gardens and springs?

Qur'an 26:147 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:148[edit]

And fields, and palm-trees whose fruits are delicious?

Qur'an 26:148 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:149[edit]

And you skillfully carve houses in the mountains?

Qur'an 26:149 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:150[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:150 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:151[edit]

And do not obey the command of the extravagant.

Qur'an 26:151 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:152[edit]

Who spread turmoil on earth, and do not reform.”

Qur'an 26:152 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:153[edit]

They said, “You are surely one of the bewitched.

Qur'an 26:153 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:154[edit]

You are nothing but a man like us. So bring us a sign, if you are truthful.

Qur'an 26:154 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:155[edit]

He said, “This is a she-camel; she has her turn of drinking, and you have your turn of drinking—on a specified day.

Qur'an 26:155 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:156[edit]

And do not touch her with harm, lest the punishment of a great day seizes you.”

Qur'an 26:156 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:157[edit]

But they slaughtered her, and became full of remorse.

Qur'an 26:157 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:158[edit]

So the punishment overtook them. Surely in this is a sign, but most of them are not believers.

Qur'an 26:158 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:159[edit]

Your Lord is the Almighty, the Merciful.

Qur'an 26:159 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:162[edit]

I am to you a faithful messenger.

Qur'an 26:162 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:163[edit]

So fear God, and obey me.

Qur'an 26:163 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:164[edit]

I ask of you no payment for it. My payment is only from the Lord of the Worlds.

Qur'an 26:164 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:165[edit]

Do you approach the males of the world?

Qur'an 26:165 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:166[edit]

And forsake the wives your Lord created for you? Indeed, you are intrusive people.”

Qur'an 26:166 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:167[edit]

They said, “Unless you refrain, O Lot, you will be expelled.”

Qur'an 26:167 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:168[edit]

He said, “I certainly deplore your conduct.”

Qur'an 26:168 Notes[edit]

Qur'an 26:169[edit]
