Tā. Sīn. Mīm. (1)
تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ
THESE ARE MESSAGES of the divine writ, clear in itself and clearly showing the truth. (2)
لَعَلَّكَ بَاخِعٌ نَفْسَكَ أَلَّا يَكُونُوا مُؤْمِنِينَ
Wouldst thou, perhaps, torment thyself to death [with grief] because they [who live around thee] refuse to believe [in it]? (3)
إِنْ نَشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ آيَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَاقُهُمْ لَهَا خَاضِعِينَ
Had We so willed, We could have sent down unto them a message from the skies, so that their necks would [be forced to] bow down before it in humility. (4)
وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ ذِكْرٍ مِنَ الرَّحْمَٰنِ مُحْدَثٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا عَنْهُ مُعْرِضِينَ
[But We have not willed it:] and so, whenever there comes unto them any fresh reminder from the Most Gracious, they [who are blind of heart] always turn their backs upon it: (5)
فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوا فَسَيَأْتِيهِمْ أَنْبَاءُ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ
thus, indeed, have they given the lie [to this message as well]. But [in time] they will come to understand what it was that they were wont to deride! (6)
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا إِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَمْ أَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ كَرِيمٍ
Have they, then, never considered the earth – how much of every noble kind [of life] We have caused to grow thereon? (7)
إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَةً وَمَا كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
In this, behold, there is a message [unto men], even though most of them will not believe [in it]. (8)
وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
But, verily, thy Sustainer – He alone – is almighty, a dispenser of grace! (9)
