سوره ۲۱: الأنبياء - جزء ۱۷ - ترجمه Yusufali

وَكَمْ قَصَمْنَا مِنْ قَرْيَةٍ كَانَتْ ظَالِمَةً وَأَنْشَأْنَا بَعْدَهَا قَوْمًا آخَرِينَ ﴿۱۱﴾
How many were the populations We utterly destroyed because of their iniquities, setting up in their places other peoples? (۱۱)
فَلَمَّا أَحَسُّوا بَأْسَنَا إِذَا هُمْ مِنْهَا يَرْكُضُونَ ﴿۱۲﴾
Yet, when they felt Our Punishment (coming), behold, they (tried to) flee from it. (۱۲)
لَا تَرْكُضُوا وَارْجِعُوا إِلَى مَا أُتْرِفْتُمْ فِيهِ وَمَسَاكِنِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُسْأَلُونَ ﴿۱۳﴾
Flee not, but return to the good things of this life which were given you, and to your homes in order that ye may be called to account. (۱۳)
قَالُوا يَا وَيْلَنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ ﴿۱۴﴾
They said: "Ah! woe to us! We were indeed wrong-doers!" (۱۴)
فَمَا زَالَتْ تِلْكَ دَعْوَاهُمْ حَتَّى جَعَلْنَاهُمْ حَصِيدًا خَامِدِينَ ﴿۱۵﴾
And that cry of theirs ceased not, till We made them as a field that is mown, as ashes silent and quenched. (۱۵)
وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَاءَ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا لَاعِبِينَ ﴿۱۶﴾
Not for (idle) sport did We create the heavens and the earth and all that is between! (۱۶)
لَوْ أَرَدْنَا أَنْ نَتَّخِذَ لَهْوًا لَاتَّخَذْنَاهُ مِنْ لَدُنَّا إِنْ كُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ ﴿۱۷﴾
If it had been Our wish to take (just) a pastime, We should surely have taken it from the things nearest to Us, if We would do (such a thing)! (۱۷)
بَلْ نَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ فَيَدْمَغُهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ وَلَكُمُ الْوَيْلُ مِمَّا تَصِفُونَ ﴿۱۸﴾
Nay, We hurl the Truth against falsehood, and it knocks out its brain, and behold, falsehood doth perish! Ah! woe be to you for the (false) things ye ascribe (to Us). (۱۸)
وَلَهُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَنْ عِنْدَهُ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِهِ وَلَا يَسْتَحْسِرُونَ ﴿۱۹﴾
To Him belong all (creatures) in the heavens and on earth: Even those who are in His (very) Presence are not too proud to serve Him, nor are they (ever) weary (of His service): (۱۹)
يُسَبِّحُونَ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ لَا يَفْتُرُونَ ﴿۲۰﴾
They celebrate His praises night and day, nor do they ever flag or intermit. (۲۰)
