Surah 36 - Ya Sin YA SIN
036.001 Ya Sin.
036.002 By the Qur'an, full of Wisdom,-
036.003 Thou art indeed one of the apostles,
036.004 On a Straight Way.
036.005 It is a Revelation sent down by (Him), the Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.
036.006 In order that thou mayest admonish a people, whose fathers had received no admonition, and who therefore remain heedless (of the Signs of God).
036.007 The Word is proved true against the greater part of them: for they do not believe.
036.008 We have put yokes round their necks right up to their chins, so that their heads are forced up (and they cannot see).
036.009 And We have put a bar in front of them and a bar behind them, and further, We have covered them up; so that they cannot see.
036.010 The same is it to them whether thou admonish them or thou do not admonish them: they will not believe.
036.011 Thou canst but admonish such a one as follows the Message and fears the (Lord) Most Gracious, unseen: give such a one, therefore, good tidings, of Forgiveness and a Reward most generous.
036.012 Verily We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before and that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (of evidence).
036.013 Set forth to them, by way of a parable, the (story of) the Companions of the City. Behold!, there came apostles to it.
036.014 When We (first) sent to them two apostles, they rejected them: But We strengthened them with a third: they said, "Truly, we have been sent on a mission to you."
036.015 The (people) said: "Ye are only men like ourselves; and (God) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie."
036.016 They said: "Our Lord doth know that we have been sent on a mission to you:
036.017 "And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message."
036.018 The (people) said: "for us, we augur an evil omen from you: if ye desist not, we will certainly stone you. And a grievous punishment indeed will be inflicted on you by us."
036.019 They said: "Your evil omens are with yourselves: (deem ye this an evil omen). If ye are admonished? Nay, but ye are a people transgressing all bounds!"
036.020 Then there came running, from the farthest part of the City, a man, saying, "O my people! Obey the apostles:
036.021 "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves), and who have themselves received Guidance.
036.022 "It would not be reasonable in me if I did not serve Him Who created me, and to Whom ye shall (all) be brought back.
036.023 "Shall I take (other) gods besides Him? If (God) Most Gracious should intend some adversity for me, of no use whatever will be their intercession for me, nor can they deliver me.
036.024 "I would indeed, if I were to do so, be in manifest Error.
036.025 "For me, I have faith in the Lord of you (all): listen, then, to me!"
