HE WHO created the skies and the earth and all that is between the skies and the earth in six Days, then HE HIMSELF rose over the Throne (Istaw). The Most Loving -- ask about HIS Glory from the one who knows.

60.            Waitha qeela lahumu osjudoo lilrrahmani qaloo wama alrrahmanu anasjudu lima tamuruna wazadahum nufooran
When it is said to these people that prostrate before the Most Loving (Allh, subhaana wa taaala) they ask: "What is the Most Loving? Shall we just keep prostrating before the One about whom you desire? This invitation even increases their hatred more. (R) 3

66.            Innaha saat mustaqarran wamuqaman
It is an evil living and resting place."

36.            Falamma jaa sulaymana qala atumiddoonani bimalin fama ataniya Allahu khayrun mimma atakum bal antum bihadiyyatikum tafrahoona
When he (Queens messenger) came to Sulaimn, he (Sulaimn) said: "Do you want to help me with wealth? What Allh has given me is lot more than it that HE has given you. You rejoice with your gifts!"

ارْجِعْ إِلَيْهِمْ فَلَنَأْتِيَنَّهُمْ بِجُنُودٍ لَّا قِبَلَ لَهُم بِهَا وَلَنُخْرِجَنَّهُم مِّنْهَا أَذِلَّةً وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ

37.            IrjiAA ilayhim falanatiyannahum bijunoodin la qibala lahum biha walanukhrijannahum minha athillatan wahum saghiroona
(O messenger) Go back to those who sent you. We shall come to them with such armies that they will not be able to resist and we shall drive them out from there with such disgrace that they will remain humiliated."

قَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا المَلَأُ أَيُّكُمْ يَأْتِينِي بِعَرْشِهَا قَبْلَ أَن يَأْتُونِي مُسْلِمِينَ

38.            Qala AAifreetun mina aljinni ana ateeka bihi qabla an taqooma min maqamika wainne AAalayhi laqawiyyun ameenun
Sulaimn asked: "O people of the court, who among you is going to bring her throne to me before it that those people come to me in submission?

قَالَ عِفْريتٌ مِّنَ الْجِنِّ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن تَقُومَ مِن مَّقَامِكَ وَإِنِّي عَلَيْهِ لَقَوِيٌّ أَمِينٌ

39.            Qala AAifreetun mina aljinni ana ateeka bihi qabla an taqooma min maqamika wainne AAalayhi laqawiyyun ameenun
Among the Jinns the gigantic one (Ifrt) said: "I shall bring it to you before you rise from your place (council). I have the power for it and am trustworthy."

قَالَ الَّذِي عِندَهُ عِلْمٌ مِّنَ الْكِتَابِ أَنَا آتِيكَ بِهِ قَبْلَ أَن يَرْتَدَّ إِلَيْكَ طَرْفُكَ فَلَمَّا رَآهُ مُسْتَقِرًّا عِندَهُ قَالَ هَذَا مِن فَضْلِ رَبِّي لِيَبْلُوَنِي أَأَشْكُرُ أَمْ أَكْفُرُ وَمَن شَكَرَ فَإِنَّمَا يَشْكُرُ لِنَفْسِهِ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ رَبِّي غَنِيٌّ كَرِيمٌ

40.            Qala allathee AAindahu AAilmun mina alkitabi ana ateeka bihi qabla an yartadda ilayka tarfuka falamma raahu mustaqirran AAindahu qala hatha min fadli rabbee liyabluwanee aashkuru am akfuru waman shakara fainnama yashkuru linafsihi waman kafara fainna rabbee ghaniyyun kareemun
The person who has (a special) knowledge of the Book, he said: "I am going to bring it -- before you twinkle your eye. As Sulaimn saw the throne placed beside him, he exclaimed: "This is the Grace of my Rbb -- so that HE may test me whether I am grateful or ungrateful. And whoever is grateful, his/her gratitude is beneficial for him/her own-self, otherwise if a person is unmindful then my Rbb is Rich (Free of all wants) and SELF-EXALTED."

قَالَ نَكِّرُوا لَهَا عَرْشَهَا نَنظُرْ أَتَهْتَدِي أَمْ تَكُونُ مِنَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَهْتَدُونَ

41.            Qala nakkiroo laha AAarshaha nanthur atahtadee am takoonu mina allatheena la yahtadoona
Sulaimn said: "In an unfamiliar way place her throne in front of her, let us see whether she gets to the right thing or she is one of those who do not find the right path.

فَلَمَّا جَاءتْ قِيلَ أَهَكَذَا عَرْشُكِ قَالَتْ كَأَنَّهُ هُوَ وَأُوتِينَا الْعِلْمَ مِن قَبْلِهَا وَكُنَّا مُسْلِمِينَ

42.            Falamma jaat qeela ahakatha AAarshuki qalat kaannahu huwa waooteena alAAilma min qabliha wakunna muslimeena
When the queen came, it was said to her: "Is your throne like this?" She began to say: "It is as if the same one." We had come to know this before hand and we had surrendered (or we had become Muslims).

وَصَدَّهَا مَا كَانَت تَّعْبُدُ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهَا كَانَتْ مِن قَوْمٍ كَافِرِينَ

43.            Wasaddaha ma kanat taAAbudu min dooni Allahi innaha kanat min qawmin kafireena
That which was keeping her away (to bring Faith) was the worship of those deities whom she used to worship except Allh because she was from the infidel (Kafir) nation.

قِيلَ لَهَا ادْخُلِي الصَّرْحَ فَلَمَّا رَأَتْهُ حَسِبَتْهُ لُجَّةً وَكَشَفَتْ عَن سَاقَيْهَا قَالَ إِنَّهُ صَرْحٌ مُّمَرَّدٌ مِّن قَوَارِيرَ قَالَتْ رَبِّ إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَأَسْلَمْتُ مَعَ سُلَيْمَانَ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

44.            Qeela laha odkhulee alssarha falamma raathu hasibathu lujjatan wakashafat AAan saqayha qala innahu sarhun mumarradun min qawareera qalat rabbi innee thalamtu nafsee waaslamtu maAAa sulaymana lillahi rabbi alAAalameena
It was said to her: "Enter into the Palace (As-Sarh). As she saw it, she thought it is a water-pool and to enter she lifted up the legs of her trousers (uncovering her legs). Sulaimn said: "It is a polished glass house (Sarh)." On this she cried out: "O my Rbb, (till today) I have been doing wrong to myself, and now with Sulaimn I have embraced the submission of Allh, the Rbb-ul-'Alamn (
nourisher/sustainer of the entire world). (R) 18

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا إِلَى ثَمُودَ أَخَاهُمْ صَالِحًا أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ فَإِذَا هُمْ فَرِيقَانِ يَخْتَصِمُونَ

45.            Walaqad arsalna ila thamooda akhahum salihan ani oAAbudoo Allaha faitha hum fareeqani yakhtasimoona
And toward Thamd WE sent their brother Slih (with this message) that "Serve Allh then all-of-sudden they became two opposite groups (believers and infidels).

قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ لِمَ تَسْتَعْجِلُونَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ قَبْلَ الْحَسَنَةِ لَوْلَا تَسْتَغْفِرُونَ اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

46.            Qala ya qawmi lima tastaAAjiloona bialssayyiati qabla alhasanati lawla tastaghfiroona Allaha laAAallakum turhamoona
Slih said: "O people of my nation, why do you hasten for the evil before the good? Why dont you seek Forgiveness of Allh? Perhaps mercy is shown to you?

قَالُوا اطَّيَّرْنَا بِكَ وَبِمَن مَّعَكَ قَالَ طَائِرُكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ تُفْتَنُونَ

47.            Qaloo ittayyarna bika wabiman maAAaka qala tairukum AAinda Allahi bal antum qawmun tuftanoona
They replied, "We have found you and your companions as a symbol of bad luck. Slih responded: "Your good and bad luck is with Allh. The fact is that you people are being tested."

وَكَانَ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ تِسْعَةُ رَهْطٍ يُفْسِدُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا يُصْلِحُونَ

48.            Wakana fee almadeenati tisAAatu rahtin yufsidoona fee alardi wala yuslihoona
There were nine activists (reformers) in that city -- who used to spread mischief in the land and do nothing to reform.

قَالُوا تَقَاسَمُوا بِاللَّهِ لَنُبَيِّتَنَّهُ وَأَهْلَهُ ثُمَّ لَنَقُولَنَّ لِوَلِيِّهِ مَا شَهِدْنَا مَهْلِكَ أَهْلِهِ وَإِنَّا لَصَادِقُونَ

49.            Qaloo taqasamoo biAllahi lanubayyitannahu waahlahu thumma lanaqoolanna liwaliyyihi ma shahidna mahlika ahlihi wainna lasadiqoona
They said to one another: "Promise on oath -- By Allh we shall attack in the secret of night on Slih and his household and then (we) will say to his guardian that we were not present at the time of the destruction of his household, we are telling the truth".

وَمَكَرُوا مَكْرًا وَمَكَرْنَا مَكْرًا وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ

50.            Wamakaroo makran wamakarna makran wahum la yashAAuroona
This was their plan and then WE made a plan of which they were unaware.

فَانظُرْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ مَكْرِهِمْ أَنَّا دَمَّرْنَاهُمْ وَقَوْمَهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

51.            Faonthur kayfa kana AAaqibatu makrihim anna dammarnahum waqawmahum ajmaAAeena
Now see that what the end-result of their plan was. WE destroyed them and their entire nation.

فَتِلْكَ بُيُوتُهُمْ خَاوِيَةً بِمَا ظَلَمُوا إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْلَمُونَ

52.            Fatilka buyootuhum khawiyatan bima thalamoo inna fee thalika laayatan liqawmin yaAAlamoona
There are their empty houses (in utter ruin) as result of their cruelty that they used to do; there is a warning sign (Ayh) in it for those people who have knowledge.

وَأَنجَيْنَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَكَانُوا يَتَّقُونَ

53.            Waanjayna allatheena amanoo wakanoo yattaqoona
And WE saved those people who had brought Faith and used to restrain from disobedience.

وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ وَأَنتُمْ تُبْصِرُونَ

54.            Walootan ith qala liqawmihi atatoona alfahishata waantum tubsiroona
And WE sent Lout. Recall that time when he said to his nation. Do you commit sin (AlFhishah) while you see it?"

أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاء بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ تَجْهَلُونَ

55.            Ainnakum latatoona alrrijala shahwatan min dooni alnnisai bal antum qawmun tajhaloona
"Is this your conduct -- that you approach men for your sexual desires rather than women? The fact is that you are the people who do the act of severe stupidity.

فَمَا كَانَ جَوَابَ قَوْمِهِ إِلَّا أَن قَالُوا أَخْرِجُوا آلَ لُوطٍ مِّن قَرْيَتِكُمْ إِنَّهُمْ أُنَاسٌ يَتَطَهَّرُونَ

56.            Fama kana jawaba qawmihi illa an qaloo akhrijoo ala lootin min qaryatikum innahum onasun yatatahharoona
But there was no other answer given by his people except that they said: "Expel the family of Lout from your town, they proclaim to be clean and pure.

فَأَنجَيْنَاهُ وَأَهْلَهُ إِلَّا امْرَأَتَهُ قَدَّرْنَاهَا مِنَ الْغَابِرِينَ

57.            Faanjaynahu waahlahu illa imraatahu qaddarnaha mina alghabireena
Ultimately WE saved him and his household, except his wife about whom WE had decreed to be remained behind,

وَأَمْطَرْنَا عَلَيْهِم مَّطَرًا فَسَاء مَطَرُ الْمُنذَرِينَ

58.            Waamtarna AAalayhim mataran fasaa mataru almunthareena
And WE showered down rain (of stones) on them; it was the worst rain for those people who had been warned. (R) 19

قُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ وَسَلَامٌ عَلَى عِبَادِهِ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَى آللَّهُ خَيْرٌ أَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ

59.            Quli alhamdu lillahi wasalamun AAala AAibadihi allatheena istafa allahu khayrun amma yushrikoona
(O Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) Say: "Praise is for Allh and peace is upon HIS those servants whom HE has chosen. (Ask them) Is Allh better or those deities whom these people are associating with HIM?
