Surah Info


˹The time of˺ people’s judgment has drawn near, yet they are heedlessly turning away.
Whatever new reminder comes to them from their Lord, they only listen to it jokingly,
with their hearts ˹totally˺ distracted. The evildoers would converse secretly, ˹saying,˺ “Is this ˹one˺ not human like yourselves? Would you fall for ˹this˺ witchcraft, even though you can ˹clearly˺ see?”
The Prophet responded, “My Lord ˹fully˺ knows every word spoken in the heavens and the earth. For He is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing.”
Yet they say, “This ˹Quran˺ is a set of confused dreams! No, he has fabricated it! No, he must be a poet! So let him bring us a ˹tangible˺ sign like those ˹prophets˺ sent before.”
Not a ˹single˺ society We destroyed before them ever believed ˹after receiving the signs˺. Will these ˹pagans˺ then believe?
We did not send ˹messengers˺ before you ˹O Prophet˺ except mere men inspired by Us. If you ˹polytheists˺ do not know ˹this already˺, then ask those who have knowledge ˹of the Scriptures˺.
We did not give those messengers ˹supernatural˺ bodies that did not need food, nor were they immortal.
Then We fulfilled Our promise to them, saving them along with whoever We willed and destroying the transgressors.
We have surely revealed to you a Book, in which there is glory for you. Will you not then understand?
