The Holy Qoran with English Translation

سورة نوح MP3
1. بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.
2. إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ أَنْ أَنذِرْ قَوْمَكَ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ
SENT NOAH to his people to warn them before the painful punishment came upon them.
3. قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ إِنِّي لَكُمْ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ
He said: "O my people, I warn you clearly
4. أَنِ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَاتَّقُوهُ وَأَطِيعُونِ
That you should worship God and fear Him, and follow me
5. يَغْفِرْ لَكُم مِّن ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُؤَخِّرْكُمْ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى ۚ إِنَّ أَجَلَ اللَّهِ إِذَا جَاءَ لَا يُؤَخَّرُ ۖ لَوْ كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
That He may forgive some of your sins and prolong your term till an appointed time. Surely when God's appointed time is come it will not be put off, if only you knew!
6. قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي دَعَوْتُ قَوْمِي لَيْلًا وَنَهَارًا
He said: "O Lord, I called my people night and day,
7. فَلَمْ يَزِدْهُمْ دُعَائِي إِلَّا فِرَارًا
But the more I called, they only ran the farther away.
8. وَإِنِّي كُلَّمَا دَعَوْتُهُمْ لِتَغْفِرَ لَهُمْ جَعَلُوا أَصَابِعَهُمْ فِي آذَانِهِمْ وَاسْتَغْشَوْا ثِيَابَهُمْ وَأَصَرُّوا وَاسْتَكْبَرُوا اسْتِكْبَارًا
And every time I called them that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, and covered themselves with their garments, and became wayward, and behaved with downright insolence.
9. ثُمَّ إِنِّي دَعَوْتُهُمْ جِهَارًا
Then I called them loudly and more openly,
10. ثُمَّ إِنِّي أَعْلَنتُ لَهُمْ وَأَسْرَرْتُ لَهُمْ إِسْرَارًا
And declared to them in public and in private,
11. فَقُلْتُ اسْتَغْفِرُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفَّارًا
And I told them: 'Ask your Lord to forgive you. He is verily forgiving.
12. يُرْسِلِ السَّمَاءَ عَلَيْكُم مِّدْرَارًا
He will send you abundant rain from the sky,
13. وَيُمْدِدْكُم بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ أَنْهَارًا
And will give you increase of wealth and sons, and give you gardens and springs of water.
14. مَّا لَكُمْ لَا تَرْجُونَ لِلَّهِ وَقَارًا
What has come upon you that you do not fear the majesty of God,
15. وَقَدْ خَلَقَكُمْ أَطْوَارًا
Knowing that He has created you by various stages?
16. أَلَمْ تَرَوْا كَيْفَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ طِبَاقًا
Do you not see how God has fashioned seven skies one above the other,
17. وَجَعَلَ الْقَمَرَ فِيهِنَّ نُورًا وَجَعَلَ الشَّمْسَ سِرَاجًا
And has placed the moon therein, an illumination, and has placed the sun, a lighted lamp?
18. وَاللَّهُ أَنبَتَكُم مِّنَ الْأَرْضِ نَبَاتًا
God produced you from the earth like a vegetable growth;
19. ثُمَّ يُعِيدُكُمْ فِيهَا وَيُخْرِجُكُمْ إِخْرَاجًا
He will then return you back to it, and bring you out again.
20. وَاللَّهُ جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الْأَرْضَ بِسَاطًا
God has made the earth for you a spreading,
21. لِّتَسْلُكُوا مِنْهَا سُبُلًا فِجَاجًا
So that you may walk upon its spacious paths.'
22. قَالَ نُوحٌ رَّبِّ إِنَّهُمْ عَصَوْنِي وَاتَّبَعُوا مَن لَّمْ يَزِدْهُ مَالُهُ وَوَلَدُهُ إِلَّا خَسَارًا
But they did not listen to me," Noah said, "and followed him whose wealth and children only added to his ruin.
23. وَمَكَرُوا مَكْرًا كُبَّارًا
And they contrived a plot of great magnitude,
24. وَقَالُوا لَا تَذَرُنَّ آلِهَتَكُمْ وَلَا تَذَرُنَّ وَدًّا وَلَا سُوَاعًا وَلَا يَغُوثَ وَيَعُوقَ وَنَسْرًا
And said: 'Do not abandon your gods, and do not abandon Wadda or Suwa', or Yaghuth, Ya'uq or Nasr.'
25. وَقَدْ أَضَلُّوا كَثِيرًا ۖ وَلَا تَزِدِ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا ضَلَالًا
And they misled many. So do not give the evil-doers increase but in error.
26. مِّمَّا خَطِيئَاتِهِمْ أُغْرِقُوا فَأُدْخِلُوا نَارًا فَلَمْ يَجِدُوا لَهُم مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَنصَارًا
They were drowned because of their habitual sinfulness, and sent to Hell, and did not find any helper other than God.
27. وَقَالَ نُوحٌ رَّبِّ لَا تَذَرْ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ دَيَّارًا
Noah said: "O Lord, do not leave a single habitation of unbelievers on the earth.
28. إِنَّكَ إِن تَذَرْهُمْ يُضِلُّوا عِبَادَكَ وَلَا يَلِدُوا إِلَّا فَاجِرًا كَفَّارًا
If you leave them, they will lead Your creatures astray, and beget but iniquitous and ungrateful offspring.
29. رَّبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيَّ وَلِمَن دَخَلَ بَيْتِيَ مُؤْمِنًا وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَلَا تَزِدِ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا تَبَارًا
O Lord, forgive me, my parents, and any one who enters my house as a believer, and all believing men and women, and do not give the evil-doers increase save in ruin.
