Asalam o Alykum, welcome to 154th part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read verser 30 to 49 of surah At-Tur. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
30- Or do they say:- “A Poet! we await for him some calamity (hatched) by Time!”
31- Say thou: “Await ye!- I too will wait along with you!”
32- Is it that their faculties of understanding urge them to this, or are they but a people transgressing beyond bounds?
33- Or do they say, “He fabricated the (Message)”? Nay, they have not faith!
34- Let them then produce a recital like unto it,- If (it be) they speak the truth!
35- Were they created of nothing, or were they themselves the creators?
36- Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, they have no firm belief.
37- Or are the Treasures of thy Lord with them, or are they the managers (of affairs)?
38- Or have they a ladder, by which they can (climb up to heaven and) listen (to its secrets)? Then let (such a) listener of theirs produce a mainfest proof.
39- Or has He only daughters and ye have sons?
40- Or is it that thou dost ask for a reward, so that they are burdened with a load of debt?-
41- Or that the Unseen in it their hands, and they write it down?
42- Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a Plot!
43- Or have they a god other than Allah. Exalted is Allah far above the things they associate with Him!
44- Were they to see a piece of the sky falling (on them), they would (only) say: “Clouds gathered in heaps!”
45- So leave them alone until they encounter that Day of theirs, wherein they shall (perforce) swoon (with terror),-
46- The Day when their plotting will avail them nothing and no help shall be given them.
47- And verily, for those who do wrong, there is another punishment besides this: But most of them understand not.
48- Now await in patience the command of thy Lord: for verily thou art in Our eyes: and celebrate the praises of thy Lord the while thou standest forth,
49- And for part of the night also praise thou Him,- and at the retreat of the stars!
