023:016 Yusufali     Again, on the Day of Judgment, will ye be raised up.

023:017

023:017 Khan          And indeed We have created above you seven heavens (one over the other), and We are never unaware of the creation.

023:017 Maulana     And indeed We have made above you seven ways -- and never are We heedless of creation.

023:017 Yusufali     And We have made, above you, seven tracts; and We are never unmindful of (our) Creation.

023:018

023:018 Khan          And We sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and We gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, We are Able to take it away.

023:018 Maulana     And We send down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We cause it to settle in the earth, and We are indeed able to carry it away.

023:018 Pickthal      And we send down from the sky water in measure, and We give it lodging in the earth, and lo! We are Able to withdraw it.

023:018 Rashad       We send down from the sky water, in exact measure, then we store it in the ground. Certainly, we can let it escape.

023:018 Sarwar       We have sent a measure of water from the sky to stay on earth and We have the power to take it away.

023:018 Shakir        And We send down water from the cloud according to a measure, then We cause it to settle in the earth, and most surely We are able to carry it away.

023:018 Sherali       And WE sent down water from the sky according to a measure, and WE caused it to stay in the earth - and, surely, WE have the power to take it away.

023:018 Yusufali     And We send down water from the sky according to (due) measure, and We cause it to soak in the soil; and We certainly are able to drain it off (with ease).

023:019

023:019 Khan          Then We brought forth for you therewith gardens of date-palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you, and whereof you eat.

023:019 Maulana     Then We cause to grow thereby gardens of palm-trees and grapes for you. You have therein many fruits and of them you eat;

023:019 Pickthal      Then We produce for you therewith gardens of date-palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you and whereof ye eat;

023:019 Rashad       With it, we produce for you orchards of date palms, grapes, all kinds of fruits, and various foods.

023:019 Sarwar       We have established for you gardens of palm trees and vineyards with this water with many fruits for you to consume.

023:019 Shakir        Then We cause to grow thereby gardens of palm trees and grapes for you; you have in them many fruits and from them do you eat;

023:019 Sherali       And WE produced for you thereby gardens of date-palms and vines; for you therein are abundant fruits; and of them you eat;

023:019 Yusufali     With it We grow for you gardens of date-palms and vines: in them have ye abundant fruits: and of them ye eat (and have enjoyment),-

023:020

023:020 Khan          And a tree (olive) that springs forth from Mount Sinai, that grows oil, and (it is a) relish for the eaters.

023:020 Maulana     And a tree that grows out of Mount Sinai, which produces oil and relish for the eaters.

023:020 Pickthal      And a tree that springeth forth from Mount Sinai that groweth oil and relish for the eaters.

023:021

023:021 Khan          And Verily! In the cattle there is indeed a lesson for you. We give you to drink (milk) of that which is in their bellies. And there are, in them, numerous (other) benefits for you, and of them you eat.

023:021 Maulana     And surely there is a lesson for you in the cattle. We make you to drink of what is in their bellies, and you have in them many advantages and of them you eat,

023:021 Pickthal      And lo! in the cattle there is verily a lesson for you. We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies, and many uses have ye in them, and of them do ye eat;

023:021 Rashad       And the livestock should provide you with a lesson. We let you drink (milk) from their bellies, you derive other benefits from them, and some of them you use for food.

023:021 Sarwar       There is a lesson for you concerning cattle. We provide you with drink from their bellies and many other benefits. You can consume them as meat.

023:021 Shakir        And most surely there is a lesson for you in the cattle: We make you to drink of what is in their bellies, and you have in them many advantages and of them you eat,

023:021 Sherali       And in the cattle also there is a lesson for you. WE give you to drink of that which is in their bellies and you have in them many other benefits, and of the flesh of some of them you also eat;

023:021 Yusufali     And in cattle (too) ye have an instructive example: from within their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink; there are, in them, (besides), numerous (other) benefits for you; and of their (meat) ye eat;

023:022

023:022 Khan          And on them, and on ships you are carried.

023:022 Maulana     And on them and on the ships you are borne.

023:022 Pickthal      And on them and on the ship ye are carried.

023:022 Rashad       On them, and on the ships, you ride.

023:022 Sherali       And on them and on ships you are borne.

023:022 Yusufali     An on them, as well as in slips, ye side.

023:023

023:023                   Section 2: Noah

023:023 Khan          And indeed We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people, and he said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no other Ilah (God) but Him (Islamic Monotheism). Will you not then be afraid (of Him i.e. of His Punishment because of worshipping others besides Him)?"

023:023 Maulana     And certainly We sent Noah to his people, so he said: O my people, serve Allah, you have no God other than Him. Will you not guard against evil?

023:023 Pickthal      And We verily sent Noah unto his folk, and he said: O my people! Serve Allah. Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?

023:023 Rashad       We sent Noah to his people, saying, "O my people, worship GOD. You have no other god beside Him. Would you not be righteous?"

023:023 Sarwar       We sent Noah to his people who said, "My people, worship God for He is your only Lord. Will you then not have fear of Him?".

023:023 Shakir        And certainly We sent Nuh to his people, and he said: O my people! serve Allah, you have no god other than Him; will you not then guard (against evil)?

023:023 Sherali       And WE, certainly, sent Noah to his people, and he said, `O my people, worship ALLAH alone. You have no other god but HIM. Will you not then seek HIS protection?'

023:023 Yusufali     (Further, We sent a long line of prophets for your instruction). We sent Noah to his people: He said, "O my people! worship Allah! Ye have no other god but Him. Will ye not fear (Him)?”

023:024

023:024 Khan          But the chiefs of those who disbelieved among his people said: "He is no more than a human being like you, he seeks to make himself superior to you. Had Allah willed, He surely could have sent down angels; never did we hear such a thing among our fathers of old.

023:024 Maulana     But the chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: He is nothing but a mortal like yourselves, who desires to have superiority over you. And if Allah had pleased, He could have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our fathers of yore.

023:024 Pickthal      But the chieftains of his folk, who disbelieved, said: This is only a mortal like you who would make himself superior to you. Had Allah willed, He surely could have sent down angels. We heard not of this in the case of our fathers of old.

023:024 Rashad       The leaders who disbelieved among his people said, "This is no more than a human like you, who wants to gain prominence among you. Had GOD willed, He could have sent down angels. We never heard of anything like this from our ancestors.

023:024 Sarwar       The chiefs of the unbelievers said to the others, "He is a mere mortal like you. He wants only to be superior to you. Had God wanted He would have sent the angels (instead of him). We have never heard from our fathers anything like what he says.

023:024 Shakir        And the chiefs of those who disbelieved from among his people said: He is nothing but a mortal like yourselves who desires that he may have superiority over you, and if Allah had pleased, He could certainly have sent down angels. We have not heard of this among our fathers of yore:

023:024 Sherali       And the chiefs of his people, who disbelieved, said, `He is only a mortal like yourselves; he seeks to gain superiority over you. And if ALLAH had so willed, HE could have, surely, sent down angels with him. We have never heard of such a thing among our forefathers;

023:024 Yusufali     The chiefs of the Unbelievers among his people said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves: his wish is to assert his superiority over you: if Allah had wished (to send messengers), He could have sent down angels; never did we hear such a thing (as he says), among our ancestors of old.”

023:025

023:025 Khan          "He is only a man in whom is madness, so wait for him a while."

023:025 Maulana     He is only a madman, so bear with him for a time.

023:025 Pickthal      He is only a man in whom is a madness, so watch him for a while.

023:025 Rashad       "He is simply a man gone crazy. Just ignore him for awhile."

023:025 Sarwar       He is only an insane person. Wait for some time. Perhaps he will come to his senses."

023:025 Shakir        He is only a madman, so bear with him for a time.

023:025 Sherali       `He is but a man stricken with madness; wait, therefore, concerning him for a while.'

023:025 Yusufali     (And some said): "He is only a man possessed: wait (and have patience) with him for a time.”

023:026

023:026 Khan          [Nuh (Noah)] said: "O my Lord! Help me because they deny me."

023:026 Maulana     He said: My Lord, help me against their calling me a liar.

023:026 Pickthal      He said: My Lord! Help me because they deny me.

023:026 Rashad       He said, "My Lord, grant me victory, for they have disbelieved me."

023:026 Sarwar       Noah prayed, "Lord, help me; they have called me a liar".

023:026 Shakir        He said: O my Lord! help me against their calling me a liar.

023:026 Sherali       Noah said, `O my lord, help me, for they treat me as a liar.'

023:026 Yusufali     (Noah) said: "O my Lord! help me: for that they accuse me of falsehood!”

023:027

023:027 Khan          So We inspired him (saying): "Construct the ship under Our Eyes and under Our Revelation (guidance). Then, when Our Command comes, and the oven gushes forth water, take on board of each kind two (male and female), and your family, except those thereof against whom the Word has already gone forth. And address Me not in favour of those who have done wrong. Verily, they are to be drowned.

023:027 Maulana     So We revealed to him: Make the ark under Our eyes and according to Our revelation; then when our command comes, and water gushes forth from the valley, take into it of every kind a pair, two, and thy people, except those among them again whom the word has gone forth, and speak not to Me in respect of those who are unjust; surely they will be drowned.

023:027 Pickthal      Then We inspired in him, saying: Make the ship under Our eyes and Our inspiration. Then, when Our command cometh and the oven gusheth water, introduce therein of every (kind) two spouses, and thy household save him thereof against whom the Word hath already gone forth. And plead not with Me on behalf of those who have done wrong. Lo! they will be drowned.

023:027 Rashad       We then inspired him: "Make the watercraft under our watchful eyes, and in accordance with our inspiration. When our command comes, and the atmosphere boils up, put on it a pair of every kind (of your domesticated animals), and your family, except those condemned to be doomed. Do not speak to Me on behalf of those who transgressed; they will be drowned.

023:027 Sarwar       We inspired him, saying, "Build the Ark before Our eyes and by the instruction of Our revelation. When our decree comes to pass and water comes forth from the Oven, embark in the Ark with a pair of every kind of animals and your family except those already doomed (to perish). Do not plead with Me for the unjust; they will be drowned."

023:027 Shakir        So We revealed to him, saying: Make the ark before Our eyes and (according to) Our revelation; and when Our command is given and the valley overflows, take into it of every kind a pair, two, and your followers, except those among them against whom the word has gone forth, and do not speak to Me in respect of those who are unjust; surely they shall be drowned.

023:027 Sherali       So WE directed him by revelation: `Make the Ark under Our eyes and according to Our revelation. And when Our command comes, and the fountains of the earth gush forth, take thou into it two pairs of every species and thy family, except those of them against whom the word has already gone forth. And address ME not concerning those who have done wrong; they shall, surely, be drowned.

023:027 Yusufali     So We inspired him (with this message): "Construct the Ark within Our sight and under Our guidance: then when comes Our Command, and the fountains of the earth gush forth, take thou on board pairs of every species, male and female, and thy family- except those of them against whom the Word has already gone forth: And address Me not in favour of the wrong-doers; for they shall be drowned (in the Flood).

023:029 Sarwar       Say, "Lord, grant us a blessed landing from the Ark; You are the One who provides the safest landing".

023:029 Shakir        And say: O my Lord! cause me to disembark a blessed alighting, and Thou art the best to cause to alight.

023:029 Sherali       And when thou dost disembark from the Ark say, My Lord, cause me to land a blessed landing, for Thou art the Best of those who bring people to land.'

023:032 Maulana     So We sent among them a messenger from among them, saying: Serve Allah -- you have no God other than Him. Will you not guard against evil?

023:032 Pickthal      And we sent among them a messenger of their own, saying: Serve Allah, Ye have no other Allah save Him. Will ye not ward off (evil)?

023:044 Sarwar       We sent Our messengers one after the other but whenever a Messenger would come to a nation, its people would call him a liar and We would destroy one nation after the other, thus, only their stories were left behind them. God keeps the unbelievers far away from His Mercy.

023:044 Shakir        Then We sent Our messengers one after another; whenever there came to a people their messenger, they called him a liar, so We made some of them follow others and We made them stories; so away with a people who do not believe!

023:044 Sherali       Then WE sent Our Messengers one after the other. Every time there came to a people their Messenger, they treated him as a liar. So WE made them follow one another to destruction and WE made them mere tales of the past. Cursed, then, be the people who believe not !

023:117 Shakir        And whoever invokes with Allah another god-- he has no proof of this-- his reckoning is only with his Lord; surely the unbelievers shall not be successful.
