027:010

027:010 Khan          "And throw down your stick!" But when he saw it moving as if it were a snake, he turned in flight, and did not look back. (It was said): "O Musa (Moses)! Fear not, verily! The Messengers fear not in front of Me.

027:010 Maulana     And cast down thy rod. So when he saw it in motion as if it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and did not return. O Moses, fear not. Surely the messengers fear not in My presence --

027:010 Pickthal      And throw down thy staff! But when he saw it writhing as it were a demon, he turned to flee headlong; (but it was said unto him): O Moses! Fear not! the emissaries fear not in My presence,

027:010 Rashad       "Throw down your staff." When he saw it moving like a demon, he turned around and fled. "O Moses, do not be afraid. My messengers shall not fear.

027:010 Sarwar       Throw down your staff." When Moses saw his staff on the ground moving like a living creature, he stepped back and did not come forward again. The Lord said,"Moses, do not be afraid. Messengers do not become afraid in My presence".

027:010 Shakir        And cast down your staff. So when he saw it in motion as if it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and did not return: O Musa! fear not; surely the messengers shall not fear in My presence;

027:010 Sherali       `Throw down thy rod.' And when he saw it move as though it were a serpent, he turned back retreating and did not look back, whereupon WE said, `O Moses, fear not. Verily, I am the One in Whose presence the Messengers need have no fear;

027:010 Yusufali     "Now do thou throw thy rod!" But when he saw it moving (of its own accord)as if it had been a snake, he turned back in retreat, and retraced not his steps: "O Moses!" (it was said), "Fear not: truly, in My presence, those called as messengers have no fear,-

027:011

027:011 Khan          "Except him who has done wrong and afterwards has changed evil for good, then surely, I am Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.

027:011 Maulana     Nor he who does wrong, then does good instead after evil; surely I am Forgiving, Merciful,

027:011 Pickthal      Save him who hath done wrong and afterward hath changed evil for good. And lo! I am Forgiving, Merciful.

027:011 Rashad       "Except those who commit a transgression, then substitute righteousness after sinning; I am Forgiving, Most Merciful.

027:011 Sarwar       Only the unjust become afraid in My presence. Even to these people who replace their bad deeds by good ones, I am All-forgiving and All-merciful.

027:011 Shakir        Neither he who has been unjust, then he does good instead after evil, for surely I am the Forgiving, the Merciful:

027:011 Sherali       `As to those who do wrong and then adopt good instead of evil; to them I am indeed Most Forgiving, Merciful;

027:011 Yusufali     "But if any have done wrong and have thereafter substituted good to take the place of evil, truly, I am Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

027:012

027:012 Khan          "And put your hand into your bosom, it will come forth white without hurt. (These are) among the nine signs (you will take) to Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his people, they are a people who are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).

027:012 Maulana     And put thy hand into thy bosom, it will come forth white without evil, among nine signs to Pharaoh and his people. Surely they are a transgressing people.

027:012 Pickthal      And put thy hand into the bosom of thy robe, it will come forth white but unhurt. (This will be one) among nine tokens unto Pharaoh and his people Lo! they were ever evil-living folk.

027:012 Rashad       "Put your hand in your pocket; it will come out white, without a blemish. These are among nine miracles to Pharaoh and his people, for they are wicked people."

027:012 Sarwar       Put your hand into your pocket. It will come out sheer white but unharmed. This is one of the nine miracles which shall be showing to the Pharaoh and his people; they are truly wicked men."

027:012 Shakir        And enter your hand into the opening of your bosom, it shall come forth white without evil; among nine signs to Firon and his people, surely they are a transgressing people.

027:012 Sherali       And put thy hand into thy bosom; it will come forth white without evil. This is among the nine Signs unto Pharaoh and his people, for they are a rebellious people.'

027:012 Yusufali     "Now put thy hand into thy bosom, and it will come forth white without stain (or harm): (these are) among the nine Signs (thou wilt take) to Pharaoh and his people: for they are a people rebellious in transgression.”

027:013

027:013 Khan          But when Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) came to them, clear to see, they said: "This is a manifest magic."

027:013 Maulana     So when our clear signs came to them, they said: This is clear enchantment.

027:013 Pickthal      But when Our tokens came unto them, plain to see, they said: This is mere magic,

027:013 Rashad       When our miracles were presented to them, clear and profound, they said, "This is obviously magic."

027:013 Sarwar       When Our miracles were visibly shown to them, they said, "It is plain magic".

027:013 Shakir        So when Our clear signs came to them, they said: This is clear enchantment.

027:013 Sherali       But when Our sight-giving Signs came to them, they said, `This is manifest magic.'

027:013 Yusufali     But when Our Signs came to them, that should have opened their eyes, they said: "This is sorcery manifest!”

027:014

027:014 Khan          And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayat) are from Allah, and Musa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allah in truth, but they disliked to obey Musa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidun (disbelievers, disobedient to Allah, evil-doers, liars.).

027:014 Maulana     And they denied them unjustly and proudly, while their souls were convinced of them. See then, what was the end of the mischief-makers!

027:014 Pickthal      And they denied them, though their souls acknowledged them, for spite and arrogance. Then see the nature of the consequence for the wrong-doers!

027:014 Rashad       They rejected them and were utterly convinced of their wrong ways, due to their arrogance. Note the consequences for the evildoers.

027:014 Sarwar       They rejected the evidence because of their arrogance and injustice, although their souls knew it to be true. Think how terrible the end of the sinful ones was!

027:014 Shakir        And they denied them unjustly and proudly while their soul had been convinced of them; consider, then how was the end of the mischief-makers.

027:014 Sherali       And they rejected them wrongfully and arrogantly, while their souls were convinced of their truth. See then, how evil was the end of those who acted corruptly !

027:014 Yusufali     And they rejected those Signs in iniquity and arrogance, though their souls were convinced thereof: so see what was the end of those who acted corruptly!

027:015

027:015                   Section 2: History of Solomon

027:015 Khan          And indeed We gave knowledge to Dawud (David) and Sulaiman (Solomon), and they both said: "All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has preferred us above many of His believing slaves!"

027:015 Maulana     And certainly We gave knowledge to David and Solomon. And they said: Praise be to Allah, Who has made us excel many of His believing servants!

027:015 Pickthal      And We verily gave knowledge unto David and Solomon, and they said: Praise be to Allah, Who hath preferred us above many of His believing slaves!

027:015 Rashad       We endowed David and Solomon with knowledge, and they said, "Praise GOD for blessing us more than many of His believing servants."

027:015 Sarwar       We gave knowledge to David and Soloman. They said, "It is only God who deserves all praise. He has exalted us above many of His believing servants."

027:015 Shakir        And certainly We gave knowledge to Dawood and Sulaiman, and they both said: Praise be to Allah, Who has made us to excel many of His believing servants.

027:015 Sherali       And WE gave knowledge to David and Solomon and they said, `All praise belongs to ALLAH, Who has exalted us above many of HIS believing servants.'

027:015 Yusufali     We gave (in the past) knowledge to David and Solomon: And they both said: "Praise be to Allah, Who has favoured us above many of his servants who believe!”

027:016

027:016 Khan          And Sulaiman (Solomon) inherited (the knowledge of) Dawud (David). He said: "O mankind! We have been taught the language of birds, and on us have been bestowed all things. This, verily, is an evident grace (from Allah)."

027:016 Maulana     And Solomon was David’s heir, and he said: O men, we have been taught the speech of birds, and we have been granted of all things. Surely this is manifest grace.

027:016 Pickthal      And Solomon was David's heir. And he said: O mankind! Lo! we have been taught the language of birds, and have been given (abundance) of all things. This surely is evident favour.

027:016 Rashad       Solomon was David's heir. He said, "O people, we have been endowed with understanding the language of the birds, and all kinds of things have been bestowed upon us. This is indeed a real blessing."

027:016 Sarwar       Solomon became the heir to David. He said, "People, we have been taught the language of the birds and have been granted a share of everything. This indeed is a manifest favor (from God)".

027:016 Shakir        And Sulaiman was Dawood's heir, and he said: O men! we have been taught the language of birds, and we have been given all things; most surely this is manifest grace.

027:016 Sherali       And Solomon was heir to David. And he said, `O ye people, we have been taught the language of birds, and we have had all necessary things bestowed upon us. This indeed is God's manifest Grace.'

027:016 Yusufali     And Solomon was David's heir. He said: "O ye people! We have been taught the speech of birds, and on us has been bestowed (a little) of all things: this is indeed Grace manifest (from Allah.)”

027:017

027:017 Khan          And there were gathered before Sulaiman (Solomon) his hosts of jinns and men, and birds, and they all were set in battle order (marching forwards).

027:017 Maulana     And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were gathered to Solomon, and they were formed into groups.

027:017 Pickthal      And there were gathered together unto Solomon his armies of the jinn and humankind, and of the birds, and they were set in battle order;

027:017 Rashad       Mobilized in the service of Solomon were his obedient soldiers of jinns and humans, as well as the birds; all at his disposal.

027:017 Sarwar       Soloman's army, consisting of human beings, jinn, and birds were gathered together in his presence in ranks.

027:017 Shakir        And his hosts of the jinn and the men and the birds were gathered to him, and they were formed into groups.

027:017 Sherali       And there were gathered together unto Solomon his hosts of jinn and men and birds, and they were formed into separate divisions,

027:017 Yusufali     And before Solomon were marshalled his hosts,- of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks.

027:018

027:018 Khan          Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not."

027:018 Maulana     Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a Namlite said: O Naml, enter your houses, (lest) Solomon and his hosts crush you, while they know not.

027:018 Pickthal      Till, when they reached the Valley of the Ants, an ant exclaimed: O ants! Enter your dwellings lest Solomon and his armies crush you, unperceiving.

027:018 Rashad       When they approached the valley of the ants, one ant said, "O you ants, go into your homes, lest you get crushed by Solomon and his soldiers, without perceiving."

027:018 Sarwar       When they arrived in the valley of the ants, one ant said to the others, "Enter your dwellings lest you be carelessly crushed by Soloman and his army."

027:018 Shakir        Until when they came to the valley of the Naml, a Namlite said: O Naml! enter your houses, (that) Sulaiman and his hosts may not crush you while they do not know.

027:018 Sherali       Until when they came to the valley of Al-Naml, a Namlite said, `O ye Naml, enter your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you, while they know not.'

027:018 Yusufali     At length, when they came to a (lowly) valley of ants, one of the ants said: "O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (under foot) without knowing it.”

027:019

027:019 Khan          So he [Sulaiman (Solomon)] smiled, amused at her speech and said: "My Lord! Inspire and bestow upon me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favours which You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds that will please You, and admit me by Your Mercy among Your righteous slaves."

027:019 Maulana     So he smiled, wondering at her word, and said: My Lord, grant me that I may be grateful for Thy favour which Thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do good such as Thou art pleased with, and admit me, by Thy mercy, among Thy righteous servants.

027:019 Pickthal      And (Solomon) smiled, laughing at her speech, and said: My Lord, arouse me to be thankful for Thy favour wherewith Thou hast favoured me and my parents, and to do good that shall be pleasing unto Thee, and include me in (the number of) Thy righteous slaves.

027:019 Rashad       He smiled and laughed at her statement, and said, "My Lord, direct me to be appreciative of the blessings You have bestowed upon me and my parents, and to do the righteous works that please You. Admit me by Your mercy into the company of Your righteous servants."

027:019 Sarwar       (Solomon) smiled at the ant's remarks and said, "Lord, inspire me to thank you for Your favors to me and my parents and to act righteously so as to please you. Admit me, by your mercy into the company of Your righteous servants".

027:019 Shakir        So he smiled, wondering at her word, and said: My Lord! grant me that I should be grateful for Thy favor which Thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I should do good such as Thou art pleased with, and make me enter, by Thy mercy, into Thy servants, the good ones.

027:019 Sherali       Thereupon he smiled wondering at her words and said, `My Lord, grant me that I may be grateful to Thee, for Thy favour which Thou hast bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do such good works as would please Thee, and admit me, by Thy mercy, among Thy righteous servants.'

027:019 Yusufali     So he smiled, amused at her speech; and he said: "O my Lord! so order me that I may be grateful for Thy favours, which thou hast bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may work the righteousness that will please Thee: And admit me, by Thy Grace, to the ranks of Thy righteous Servants.”

027:020

027:020 Khan          He inspected the birds, and said: "What is the matter that I see not the hoopoe? Or is he among the absentees?

027:020 Maulana     And he reviewed the birds, then said: How is it I see not Hudhud, or is it that he is one of the absentees?

027:020 Pickthal      And he sought among the birds and said: How is it that I see not the hoopoe, or is he among the absent?

027:020 Rashad       He inspected the birds, and noted: "Why do I not see the hoopoe? Why is he missing?

027:020 Sarwar       (Solomon) inspected the birds and said, "How is it that I cannot see the hoopoe. Is he absent?.

027:020 Shakir        And he reviewed the birds, then said: How is it I see not the hoopoe or is it that he is of the absentees?

027:020 Sherali       And he reviewed the birds and said, `How is it that I do not see Hudhud?  Is he deliberately absent?

027:020 Yusufali     And he took a muster of the Birds; and he said: "Why is it I see not the Hoopoe? Or is he among the absentees?

027:021

027:021 Khan          "I will surely punish him with a severe torment, or slaughter him, unless he brings me a clear reason."

027:021 Maulana     I will certainly punish him with a severe punishment, or kill him, or he shall bring me a clear excuse.

027:038 Rashad       He said, "O you elders, which of you can bring me her mansion, before they arrive here as submitters?"

027:038 Sarwar       Solomon asked his people, "Who among you can bring her throne before (she, the queen of Sheba) comes to me submissively?".

027:038 Shakir        He said: O chiefs! which of you can bring to me her throne before they come to me in submission?

027:039 Pickthal      A stalwart of the jinn said: I will bring it thee before thou canst rise from thy place. Lo! I verily am strong and trusty for such work.

027:039 Rashad       One afrit from the jinns said, "I can bring it to you before you stand up. I am powerful enough to do this."

027:039 Sarwar       A monstrous jinn said, "I can bring it before you even stand up. I am powerful and trustworthy".

027:039 Shakir        One audacious among the jinn said: I will bring it to you before you rise up from your place; and most surely I am strong (and) trusty for it.

027:039 Sherali       A powerful chieftain from among the jinn said, `I will bring it to thee before thou strikest thy camp; and indeed I possess power therefor and I am trustworthy.'

027:040 Khan          One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said: "I will bring it to you within the twinkling of an eye!" then when [Sulaiman (Solomon)] saw it placed before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! And whoever is grateful, truly, his gratitude is for (the good of) his ownself, and whoever is ungrateful, (he is ungrateful only for the loss of his ownself). Certainly! My Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), Bountiful."

027:040 Maulana     One having knowledge of the Book said: I will bring it to thee in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he saw it settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my Lord, that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful. And whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-sufficient, Bountiful.

027:040 Pickthal      One with whom was knowledge of the Scripture said: I will bring it thee before thy gaze returneth unto thee. And when he saw it set in his presence, (Solomon) said: This is of the bounty of my Lord, that He may try me whether I give thanks or am ungrateful. Whosoever giveth thanks he only giveth thanks for (the good of) his own soul; and whosoever is ungrateful (is ungrateful only to his own soul's hurt). For lo! my Lord is Absolute in independence, Bountiful.

027:040 Rashad       The one who possessed knowledge from the book said, "I can bring it to you in the blink of your eye." When he saw it settled in front of him, he said, "This is a blessing from my Lord, whereby He tests me, to show whether I am appreciative or unappreciative. Whoever is appreciative is appreciative for his own good, and if one turns unappreciative, then my Lord is in no need for him, Most Honorable."

027:040 Sarwar       The one who had knowledge from the Book said, "I can bring it to you before you even blink your eye." When Solomon saw the throne placed before him, he said, "This is a favor from my Lord by which He wants to test whether I am grateful or ungrateful. Whoever thanks God does so for his own good. Whoever is ungrateful to God should know that my Lord is Self-Sufficient and Benevolent."

027:040 Shakir        One who had the knowledge of the Book said: I will bring it to you in the twinkling of an eye. Then when he saw it settled beside him, he said: This is of the grace of my Lord that He may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful; and whoever is grateful, he is grateful only for his own soul, and whoever is ungrateful, then surely my Lord is Self-sufficient, Honored.

027:040 Sherali       Said one who had knowledge of the book, `I will bring it to thee before thy noble envoy returns to thee.' And when he saw it set before him, he said, `This is of the grace of my Lord, that HE may try me whether I am grateful or ungrateful. And whosoever is grateful is grateful for the good of his own soul; but whosoever is ungrateful, truly, my Lord is Self-Sufficient, Gracious.'

027:040 Yusufali     Said one who had knowledge of the Book: "I will bring it to thee within the twinkling of an eye!" Then when (Solomon) saw it placed firmly before him, he said: "This is by the Grace of my Lord!- to test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful! and if any is grateful, truly his gratitude is (a gain) for his own soul; but if any is ungrateful, truly my Lord is Free of all Needs, Supreme in Honour !”

027:041

027:041 Khan          He said: "Disguise her throne for her that we may see whether she will be guided (to recognise her throne), or she will be one of those not guided."

027:041 Maulana     He said: Alter her throne for her; we may see whether she follows the right way or is of those who go not aright.

027:041 Pickthal      He said: Disguise her throne for her that we may see whether she will go aright or be of those not rightly guided.

027:041 Rashad       He said, "Remodel her mansion for her. Let us see if she will be guided, or continue with the misguided."

027:041 Sarwar       Then he said, "Make a few changes to her throne and let us see whether she will recognize it or not."

027:041 Shakir        He said: Alter her throne for her, we will see whether she follows the right way or is of those who do not go aright.

027:041 Sherali       He said, `Make the throne so beautiful as to make her own throne appear quite ordinary to her, and let us see whether she follows the right way or whether she is one of those who follow not the right way.'

027:041 Yusufali     He said: "Transform her throne out of all recognition by her: let us see whether she is guided (to the truth) or is one of those who receive no guidance.”

027:042

027:042 Khan          So when she came, it was said (to her): "Is your throne like this?" She said: "(It is) as though it were the very same." And [Sulaiman (Solomon) said]: "Knowledge was bestowed on us before her, and we were submitted to Allah (in Islam as Muslims before her)."

027:042 Maulana     So when she came, it was said: Was thy throne like this? She said: It is as it were the same; and we were given the knowledge before about it, and we submitted.

027:042 Pickthal      So, when she came, it was said (unto her): Is thy throne like this? She said: (It is) as though it were the very one. And (Solomon said): We were given the knowledge before her and we had surrendered (to Allah).

027:046 Rashad       He said, "O my people, why do you hasten to commit evil instead of good works? If only you implore GOD for forgiveness, you may attain mercy."

027:046 Sarwar       Salih said, "My people, why do you commit sins so quickly before doing good? Would that you ask forgiveness from God so that perhaps He will have mercy upon you."

027:046 Shakir        He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully?

027:046 Sherali       He said, `O my people, why do you seek to hasten on evil rather than good?  Wherefore do you not ask forgiveness of ALLAH that you may be shown mercy?'

027:046 Yusufali     He said: "O my people! why ask ye to hasten on the evil in preference to the good? If only ye ask Allah for forgiveness, ye may hope to receive mercy.

027:047 Sarwar       They said, "We have an ill omen about you and your followers." Salih replied, God has made your ill fortune await you. You are a people on trial."

027:047 Shakir        They said: We have met with ill luck on account of you and on account of those with you. He said: The cause of your evil fortune is with Allah; nay, you are a people who are tried.

027:052 Rashad       Here are their homes utterly ruined, because of their transgression. This should be a lesson for people who know.

027:052 Sarwar       Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge.
