Surah 7 - Al A'raf (THE HEIGHTS)

In the name of allah the most beneficent and merciful.

Surah 7 - Al A'raf THE HEIGHTS
007.001 Alif, Lam, Mim,Saad.
007.002 A Book revealed unto thee,- Solet thy heart be oppressed no more by any difficulty on that account-- that with it thou mightest warn (the erring) and teach the Believers).
007.003 Follow (O men!) the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition.
007.004 How many towns have We destroyed (for their sins)? Our punishment took them on a suddenby night or while they slept for their afternoon rest.
007.005 When (thus) Our punishment took them, no cry did they utter but this: "Indeed we did wrong."
007.006 Then shall we question those to whom Our message was sent and those bywhom We sent it.
007.007 And verily, We shall recount their whole story with knowledge, for We were never absent (at any time or place).
007.008 The balance that day will be true (to a nicety): those whose scale (of good) will be heavy, will prosper:
007.009 Those whose scale will be light, will find their souls in perdition, for that theywrongfully treated Oursigns.
007.010 It is We Who have placed you with authority on earth, andprovided you therein with means for the fulfilment of your life: small are the thanks that ye give! 007.011 It is We Who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels bow down to Adam, and they bowed down; notso Iblis; He refused to be of those who bow down.
007.012 (God) said:"What prevented thee from bowing down when I commanded thee?" He said: "I am better than he: Thou didst create me from fire, and him from clay."
007.013 (God) said: "Getthee down from this: itis not for thee to be arrogant here: get out, for thou art of the meanest (of creatures)."
007.014 He said: "Give me respite till the day they are raised up."
007.015 (God) said: "Be thou among those who have respite."
007.016 He said:"Because thou hast thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in waitfor them on thy straight way:
007.017 "Then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left: Nor wilt thou find, in most of them, gratitude (for thy mercies)."
007.018 (God) said: "Getout from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow thee-- Hell will I fill with you all.
007.019 "O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden, andenjoy (its good things) as ye wish: but approach not this tree,or ye run into harm andtransgression."
007.020 Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, bringing openly before their minds all their shame that was hidden from them (before): he said: "Your Lord only forbade you this tree, lest ye should become angels or such beings as live forever." 007.021 And he swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser.
007.022 So by deceit hebrought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, andthey began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies. And their Lord called unto them: "Did Inot forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy unto you?"
007.023 They said: "OurLord! We have wronged our own souls: If thou forgive us not and bestow notupon us Thy Mercy, weshall certainly be lost."
007.024 (God) said: "Getye down. With enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and yourmeans of livelihood-- for a time."
007.025 He said:"Therein shall ye live, and therein shall ye die;but from it shall ye be taken out (at last)."
007.026 O ye Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourshame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment ofrighteousness, - that is the best. Such are among the Signs of God, that they may receive admonition!
007.027 O ye Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as He got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame: for he andhis tribe watch you from a position where ye cannot see them: We made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith.
007.028 When they do aught that is shameful, they say:"We found our fathers doing so"; and "God commanded us thus": Say: "Nay, God never commands what is shameful: Do ye say ofGod what ye know not?"
007.029 Say: "My Lord hath commanded justice; and that ye set your whole selves (to Him) at every time and place of prayer, and call upon Him, making your devotion sincere as in His sight: such as He created youin the beginning, so shall ye return."
007.030 Some He hath guided: Others have (by their choice) deserved the loss of their way; in that they took the evil ones, in preference to God, for their friends and protectors, and think that they receive guidance.
