Alif-Laaam-Raa; tilka Aayaatul Kitaabi wa Qur-aa-nim Mubeen
Alif, Lam, Ra. These are the verses of the Book and a clear Qur'an.
Rubamaa yawaddul lazeena kafaroo law kaanoo muslimeen
Perhaps those who disbelieve will wish that they had been Muslims.
Zarhum yaakuloo wa tatamatta'oo wa yulhihimul amalu fasawfa ya'lamoon
Let them eat and enjoy themselves and be diverted by [false] hope, for they are going to know.
Wa maaa ahlaknaa min qaryatin illaa wa lahaa kitaabum ma'loom
And We did not destroy any city but that for it was a known decree.
Maa tasbiqu min ummatin ajalahaa wa maa yastaakhiroon
No nation will precede its term, nor will they remain thereafter.
Wa qaaloo yaaa aiyuhal lazee nuzzila 'alaihiz Zikru innaka lamajnoon
And they say, "O you upon whom the message has been sent down, indeed you are mad.
Law maa taateenaa bil malaaa'ikati in kunta minas saadiqeen
Why do you not bring us the angels, if you should be among the truthful?"
Maa nunazzilul malaaa'i kata illaa bilhaqqi wa maa kaanooo izam munzareen
We do not send down the angels except with truth; and the disbelievers would not then be reprieved.
Innaa Nahnu nazalnaz Zikra wa Innaa lahoo lahaa fizoon
Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian.
Wa laqad arsalnaa min qablika fee shiya'il awwaleen
And We had certainly sent [messengers] before you, [O Muhammad], among the sects of the former peoples.
