Aslam o Alykum, welcome to 158th part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read verses 33 to 55 of Surah Al-Qamar. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
33- The people of Lut rejected (his) warning.
34- We sent against them a violent Tornado with showers of stones, (which destroyed them), except Lut’s household: them We delivered by early Dawn,-
35- As a Grace from Us: thus do We reward those who give thanks.
36- And (Lut) did warn them of Our Punishment, but they disputed about the Warning.
37- And they even sought to snatch away his guests from him, but We blinded their eyes. (They heard:) “Now taste ye My Wrath and My Warning.”
38- Early on the morrow an abiding Punishment seized them:
39- “So taste ye My Wrath and My Warning.”
40- And We have indeed made the Quran easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?
41- To the People of Pharaoh, too, aforetime, came Warners (from Allah)..
42- The (people) rejected all Our Signs; but We seized them with such Penalty (as comes) from One Exalted in Power, able to carry out His Will.
43- Are your Unbelievers, (O Quraish), better than they? Or have ye an immunity in the Sacred Books?
44- Or do they say: “We acting together can defend ourselves?”
45- Soon will their multitude be put to flight, and they will show their backs.
46- Nay, the Hour (of Judgment) is the time promised them (for their full recompense): And that Hour will be most grievous and most bitter.
47- Truly those in sin are the ones straying in mind, and mad.
48- The Day they will be drageed through the Fire on their faces, (they will hear:) “Taste ye the touch of Hell!”
49- Verily, all things have We created in porportion and measure.
50- And Our Command is but a single (Act), -like the twinkling of an eye.
51- And (oft) in the past, have We destroyed gangs like unto you: then is there any that will receive admonition?
52- All that they do is noted in (their) Books (of Deeds):
53- Every matter, small and great, is on record.
54- As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Gardens and Rivers,
55- In an Assembly of Truth, in the Presence of a Sovereign Omnipotent.
May Allah Bless us with the knowledge of the Holy Quran. (Ameen)
