Alhamdulillah it’s Friday again. Remember to recite Surah Al Kahf and supplicate
Here’s Al Kahf in transliterations and English,if it makes it easier for you to find in shaa Allah. You may want to listen to the recitation though too if still learning in Arabic. This can be found on https://qurano.com/en/18-al-kahf/ amongst other websites. Alhamdulillah
May Allah accept our deeds and correct our intentions,making us amongst the 70,000 that will enter Paradise without reckoning.May He raise the status of those that have passed before us and beautify their grave for them and for us when it’s our turn.Ameen
Surah Al-Kahf. The Cave (18)
1.Alhamdu lillaahil lazeee anzala 'alaa 'abdihil kitaaba wa lam yaj’al lahoo 'iwajaa
[All] praise is [due] to Allah, who has sent down upon His Servant the Book and has not made therein any deviance.
2.Qaiyimal liyunzira baasan shadeedam mil ladunhu wa yubashshiral mu’mineenal lazeena ya’maloonas saalihaati anna lahum ajran hasanaa
[He has made it] straight, to warn of severe punishment from Him and to give good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a good reward
3.Maakiseena feehi abadaa
In which they will remain forever
4.Wa yunziral lazeena qaalut takhazal laahu waladaa
And to warn those who say, “Allah has taken a son.”
5.Maa lahum bihee min 'ilminw wa laa li aabaaa’ihim; kaburat kalimatan takhruju min afwaahihim; iny yaqooloona illaa kazibaa
They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers. Grave is the word that comes out of their mouths; they speak not except a lie.
6.Fala’allaka baakhi’un nafsaka 'alaaa aasaarihim illam yu;minoo bihaazal hadeesi asafaa
Then perhaps you would kill yourself through grief over them, [O Muhammad], if they do not believe in this message, [and] out of sorrow.
7.Innaa ja’alnaa ma 'alal ardi zeenatal lahaa linabluwahum ayyuhum ahsanu 'amalaa
Indeed, We have made that which is on the earth adornment for it that We may test them [as to] which of them is best in deed.
8.Wa innaa lajaa 'iloona maa 'alaihaa sa’aeedan juruzaa
And indeed, We will make that which is upon it [into] a barren ground.
9.Am hasibta anna Ashaabal Kahfi war Raqeemi kaanoo min Aayaatinaa ‘ajabaa
Or have you thought that the companions of the cave and the inscription were, among Our signs, a wonder?
10.Iz awal fityatu ilal Kahfi faqaaloo Rabbanaaa aatinaa mil ladunka rahmatanw wa haiyi’ lanaa min amrinaa rashadaa
[Mention] when the youths retreated to the cave and said, “Our Lord, grant us from Yourself mercy and prepare for us from our affair right guidance.”
11.Fadarabnaa 'alaaa aazaanihim fil Kahfi seneena 'adadaa
So We cast [a cover of sleep] over their ears within the cave for a number of years.
12.Summa ba’asnaahum lina’lama ayyul hizbaini ahsaa limaa labisooo amadaa
Then We awakened them that We might show which of the two factions was most precise in calculating what [extent] they had remained in time.
13.Nahnu naqussu 'alaika naba ahum bilhaqq; innahum fityatun aamanoo bi Rabbihim wa zidnaahum hudaa
It is We who relate to you, [O Muhammad], their story in truth. Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance.
14.Wa rabatnaa ‘alaa quloo bihim iz qaamoo faqaaloo Rabbunaa Rabbus samaawaati wal ardi lan nad’uwa min dooniheee ilaahal laqad qulnaaa izan shatataa
And We made firm their hearts when they stood up and said, “Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth. Never will we invoke besides Him any deity. We would have certainly spoken, then, an excessive transgression.
15.Haaa’ulaaa’i qawmunat takhazoo min dooniheee aalihatal law laa yaatoona 'alaihim bisultaanim baiyin; faman azlamu mimmaniftaraa 'alal laahi kazibaa
These, our people, have taken besides Him deities. Why do they not bring for [worship of] them a clear authority? And who is more unjust than one who invents about Allah a lie?”
16.Wa izi’tazal tumoohum wa maa ya’budoona illal laaha faawooo ilal kahfi yanshur lakum Rabbukum mir rahmatihee wa yuhaiyi’ lakum min amrikum mirfaqa
[The youths said to one another], “And when you have withdrawn from them and that which they worship other than Allah, retreat to the cave. Your Lord will spread out for you of His mercy and will prepare for you from your affair facility.”
17.Wa tarash shamsa izaa tala’at tazaawaru 'an kahfihim zaatal yameeni wa izaa gharabat taqriduhum zaatash shimaali wa hum fee fajwatim minh; zaalika min Aayaatillaah; mai yahdil laahu fahuwal muhtad, wa mai yudlil falan tajida lahoo waliyyam murshidaa
And [had you been present], you would see the sun when it rose, inclining away from their cave on the right, and when it set, passing away from them on the left, while they were [laying] within an open space thereof. That was from the signs of Allah. He whom Allah guides is the [rightly] guided, but he whom He leaves astray - never will you find for him a protecting guide.
18.Wa tahsabuhum ayqaazanw wa hum ruqood; wa nuqallibuhum zaatal yameeni wa zaatash shimaali wa kalbuhum baasitun ziraa’ayhi bilwaseed; lawit tala’ta 'alaihim la wallaita minhum firaaranw wa lamuli’ta minhum rubaa
And you would think them awake, while they were asleep. And We turned them to the right and to the left, while their dog stretched his forelegs at the entrance. If you had looked at them, you would have turned from them in flight and been filled by them with terror.
19.Wa kazaalika ba’asnaahum liyatasaaa’aloo bainahum; qaala qaaa’ilum minhum kam labistum qaaloo labisnaa yawman aw ba’da yawm; qaaloo Rabbukum a’almu bimaa labistum fab’asooo ahadakum biwariqikum haazihee ilal madeenati falyanzur ayyuhaaa azkaa ta’aaman falyaatikum birizqim minhu walyatalattaf wa laa yush’iranna bikum ahadaa
And similarly, We awakened them that they might question one another. Said a speaker from among them, “How long have you remained [here]?” They said, “We have remained a day or part of a day.” They said, “Your Lord is most knowing of how long you remained. So send one of you with this silver coin of yours to the city and let him look to which is the best of food and bring you provision from it and let him be cautious. And let no one be aware of you.
20.Innahum iny yazharoo 'alaikum yarjumookum aw yu’eedookum fee millatihim wa lan tuflihooo izan abadaa
Indeed, if they come to know of you, they will stone you or return you to their religion. And never would you succeed, then - ever.”
21.Wa kazaalika a’sarnaa 'alaihim liya’lamooo anna wa’dal laahi haqqunw wa annas Saa’ata laa raiba feehaa iz yatanaaza’oona bainahum amrahum faqaalub noo 'alaihim bunyaanaa; Rabbuhum a’lamu bihim; qaalal lazeena ghalaboo 'alaaa amrihim lanat takhizanna 'alaihim masjidaa
And similarly, We caused them to be found that they [who found them] would know that the promise of Allah is truth and that of the Hour there is no doubt. [That was] when they disputed among themselves about their affair and [then] said, “Construct over them a structure. Their Lord is most knowing about them.” Said those who prevailed in the matter, “We will surely take [for ourselves] over them a masjid.”
22.Sa yaqooloona salaasatur raabi’uhum kalbuhum wa yaqooloona khamsatun saadisuhum kalbuhum rajmam bilghaib; wa yaqooloona sab’atunw wa saaminuhum kalbuhum; qur Rabbeee a’lamu bi’iddatihim maa ya’lamuhum illaa qaleel; falaa tumaari feehim illaa miraaa’an zaahiranw wa laa tastafti feehim minhum ahadaa
They will say there were three, the fourth of them being their dog; and they will say there were five, the sixth of them being their dog - guessing at the unseen; and they will say there were seven, and the eighth of them was their dog. Say, [O Muhammad], “My Lord is most knowing of their number. None knows them except a few. So do not argue about them except with an obvious argument and do not inquire about them among [the speculators] from anyone.”
23.Wa laa taqoolanna lishai’in innee faa’ilun zaalika ghadaa
And never say of anything, “Indeed, I will do that tomorrow,”
24.Illaaa any yashaaa’al laah; wazkur Rabbaka izaa naseeta wa qul ‘asaaa any yahdiyani Rabbee li aqraba min haazaa rashadaa
Except [when adding], “If Allah wills.” And remember your Lord when you forget [it] and say, “Perhaps my Lord will guide me to what is nearer than this to right conduct.”
25.Wa labisoo fee kahfihim salaasa mi’atin sineena wazdaadoo tis’aa
And they remained in their cave for three hundred years and exceeded by nine.
26.Qulil laahu a’lamu bimaa labisoo lahoo ghaibus samaawaati wal ardi absir bihee wa asmi’; maa lahum min doonihee minw waliyyinw wa laa yushriku fee hukmihee ahadaa
Say, “Allah is most knowing of how long they remained. He has [knowledge of] the unseen [aspects] of the heavens and the earth. How Seeing is He and how Hearing! They have not besides Him any protector, and He shares not His legislation with anyone.”
27.Watlu maaa oohiya ilaika min Kitaabi Rabbika laa mubaddila li Kalimaatihee wa lan tajida min doonihee multahadaa
And recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord. There is no changer of His words, and never will you find in other than Him a refuge.
28.Wasbir nafsaka ma’al lazeena yad’oona Rabbahum bilghadaati wal’ashiyyi yureedoona Wajhahoo wa laa ta’du 'aynaaka ‘anhum tureedu zeenatal hayaatid dunyaa wa laa tuti’ man aghfalnaa qalbahoo ‘an zikrinaa wattaba’a hawaahu wa kaana amruhoo furutaa
And keep yourself patient [by being] with those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His countenance. And let not your eyes pass beyond them, desiring adornments of the worldly life, and do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance and who follows his desire and whose affair is ever [in] neglect.
29.Wa qulil haqqu mir Rabbikum faman shaaa’a falyu minw wa man shaaa’a falyakfur; innaaa a’tadnaa lizzaalimeena Naaran ahaata bihim suraadiquhaa; wa iny yastagheesoo yaghaasoo bimaaa’in kalmuhli yashwil wujooh’ bi’sash-sharaab; wa saaa’at murtafaqaa
And say, “The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills - let him believe; and whoever wills - let him disbelieve.” Indeed, We have prepared for the wrongdoers a fire whose walls will surround them. And if they call for relief, they will be relieved with water like murky oil, which scalds [their] faces. Wretched is the drink, and evil is the resting place.
30.Innal lazeena aamanoo wa 'amilus saalihaati innaa laa nudee’u ajra man ahsana 'amalaa
Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds - indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of any who did well in deeds.
31.Ulaaa’ika lahum Jannaatu 'Adnin tajree min tahtihimul anhaaru yuhallawna feehaa min asaawira min zahabinw wa yalbasoona siyaaban khudram min sundusinw wa istabraqim muttaki’eena feehaa 'alal araaa’ik; ni’mas sawaab; wa hasunat murtafaqaa
Those will have gardens of perpetual residence; beneath them rivers will flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and will wear green garments of fine silk and brocade, reclining therein on adorned couches. Excellent is the reward, and good is the resting place.
32.Wadrib lahum masalar rajulaini ja’alnaa li ahadihimaa jannataini min a’naabinw wa hafafnaahumaa binakhilinw wa ja’alnaa bainahumaa zar’aa
And present to them an example of two men: We granted to one of them two gardens of grapevines, and We bordered them with palm trees and placed between them [fields of] crops.
33.Kiltal jannataini aatat ukulahaa wa lam tazlim minhu shai’anw wa fajjarnaa khi laalahumaa naharaa
Each of the two gardens produced its fruit and did not fall short thereof in anything. And We caused to gush forth within them a river.
34.Wa kaana lahoo samarun faqaala lisaahibihee wa huwa yuhaawiruhoo ana aksaru minka maalanw wa a’azzu nafaraa
And he had fruit, so he said to his companion while he was conversing with him, “I am greater than you in wealth and mightier in [numbers of] men.”
35.Wa dakhala jannatahoo wa huwa zaalimul linafsihee qaala maaa azunnu an tabeeda haaziheee abadaa
And he entered his garden while he was unjust to himself. He said, “I do not think that this will perish - ever.
36.Wa maaa azunnus Saa’ata qaaa’imatanw wa la’ir rudittu ilaa Rabbee la ajidanna khairam minhaa munqalabaa
And I do not think the Hour will occur. And even if I should be brought back to my Lord, I will surely find better than this as a return.”
37.Qaala lahoo saahibuhoo wa huwa yuhaawiruhooo akafarta billazee khalaqaka min turaabin summa min nutfatin summa sawwaaka rajulaa
His companion said to him while he was conversing with him, “Have you disbelieved in He who created you from dust and then from a sperm-drop and then proportioned you [as] a man?
38.Laakinaa Huwal laahu Rabbee wa laa ushriku bi Rabbeee ahadaa
But as for me, He is Allah, my Lord, and I do not associate with my Lord anyone.
39.Wa law laaa iz dakhalta jannataka qulta maa shaaa’al laahu laa quwwata illaa billaah; in tarani ana aqalla minka maalanw wa waladaa
And why did you, when you entered your garden, not say, 'What Allah willed [has occurred]; there is no power except in Allah '? Although you see me less than you in wealth and children,
40.Fa’asaa Rabeee any yu’tiyani khairam min jannatika wa yursila 'alaihaa husbaanam minas samaaa’i fatusbiha sa’eedan zalaqaa
It may be that my Lord will give me [something] better than your garden and will send upon it a calamity from the sky, and it will become a smooth, dusty ground,
41.Aw yusbiha maaa’uhaaa ghawran falan tastatee’a lahoo talabaa
Or its water will become sunken [into the earth], so you would never be able to seek it.”
42.Wa uheeta bisamarihee faasbaha yuqallibu kaffaihi 'alaa maaa anfaqa feehaa wa hiya khaawiyatun 'alaa 'urooshihaa wa yaqoolu yaalaitanee lam ushrik bi Rabbeee ahadaa
And his fruits were encompassed [by ruin], so he began to turn his hands about [in dismay] over what he had spent on it, while it had collapsed upon its trellises, and said, “Oh, I wish I had not associated with my Lord anyone.”
43.Wa lam takul lahoo fi’atuny yansuroonahoo min doonil laahi wa maa kaana muntasiraa
And there was for him no company to aid him other than Allah, nor could he defend himself.
44.Hunaalikal walaayatu lillaahil haqq; huwa khairun sawaabanw wa khairun 'uqbaa
There the authority is [completely] for Allah, the Truth. He is best in reward and best in outcome.
45.Wadrib lahum masalal hayaatid dunyaa kamaaa’in anzalnaahu minas samaaa’i fakhtalata bihee nabaatul ardi fa asbaha hasheeman tazroo hur riyaah; wa kaanal laahu 'alaa kulli shai’im muqtadiraa
And present to them the example of the life of this world, [its being] like rain which We send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and [then] it becomes dry remnants, scattered by the winds. And Allah is ever, over all things, Perfect in Ability.
46.Almaalu walbanoona zeenatul hayaatid dunya wal baaqiyaatus saalihaatu khairun 'inda Rabbika sawaabanw wa khairun amalaa
Wealth and children are [but] adornment of the worldly life. But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope.
47.Wa yawma nusaiyirul jibaala wa taral arda baariza tanw wa hasharnaahum falam nughaadir minhum ahadaa
And [warn of] the Day when We will remove the mountains and you will see the earth prominent, and We will gather them and not leave behind from them anyone.
48.Wa 'uridoo 'alaa Rabbika saffaa, laqad ji’tumoonaa kamaa khalaqnaakum awala marrah; bal za’amtum allannaj’ala lakum maw’idaa
And they will be presented before your Lord in rows, [and He will say], “You have certainly come to Us just as We created you the first time. But you claimed that We would never make for you an appointment.”
49.Wa wudi’al kitaabu fataral mujrimeena mushfiqeena mimmaa feehi wa yaqooloona yaa wailatanaa maa lihaazal kitaabi laa yughaadiru saghee ratanw wa laa kabeeratan illaaa ahsaahaa; wa wajadoo maa 'amiloo haadiraa; wa laa yazlimu Rabbuka ahadaa
And the record [of deeds] will be placed [open], and you will see the criminals fearful of that within it, and they will say, “Oh, woe to us! What is this book that leaves nothing small or great except that it has enumerated it?” And they will find what they did present [before them]. And your Lord does injustice to no one.
50.Wa iz qulnaa lilma laaa’ikatis judoo li Aadama fasajadooo illaaa Ibleesa kaana minal jinni fafasaqa 'an amri Rabbih; afatattakhizoonahoo wa zurriyatahooo awliyaaa’a min doonee wa hum lakum 'aduww; bi’sa lizzaalimeena badalaa
And [mention] when We said to the angels, “Prostrate to Adam,” and they prostrated, except for Iblees. He was of the jinn and departed from the command of his Lord. Then will you take him and his descendants as allies other than Me while they are enemies to you? Wretched it is for the wrongdoers as an exchange.
51.Maaa ash hattuhum khalqas samaawaati wal ardi wa laa khalqa anfusihim wa maa kuntu muttakizal mudilleena 'adudaa
I did not make them witness to the creation of the heavens and the earth or to the creation of themselves, and I would not have taken the misguiders as assistants.
52.Wa Yawma yaqoolu naadoo shurakaaa’i yal lazeena za’amtum fada’awhum falam yastajeeboo lahum wa ja’alnaa bainahum maw biqaa
And [warn of] the Day when He will say, “Call ‘My partners’ whom you claimed,” and they will invoke them, but they will not respond to them. And We will put between them [a valley of] destruction.
53.Wa ra al mujrimoonan Naara fazannooo annahum muwaaqi’oohaa wa lam yajidoo 'anhaa masrifaa
And the criminals will see the Fire and will be certain that they are to fall therein. And they will not find from it a way elsewhere.
54.Wa laqad sarrafnaa fee haazal quraani linnaasi mn kulli masal; wa kaanal insaanu aksara shai’in jadalaa
And We have certainly diversified in this Qur’an for the people from every [kind of] example; but man has ever been, most of anything, [prone to] dispute.
55.Wa maa mana’an naasa any yu’minooo iz jaaa’ahumul hudaa wa yastaghfiroo Rabbahum illaaa an taatiyahum sunnatul awwaleena aw yaatiyahumul 'azaabu qubulaa
And nothing has prevented the people from believing when guidance came to them and from asking forgiveness of their Lord except that there [must] befall them the [accustomed] precedent of the former peoples or that the punishment should come [directly] before them.
56.Wa maa nursilul mursaleena illaa mubashshireena wa munzireen; wa yujaadilul lazeena kafaroo bilbaatili liyudhidoo bihil haqqa wattakhazooo Aayaatee wa maaa unziroo huzuwaa
And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule.
57.Wa man azlamu mimman zukkira bi ayaati Rabbihee fa-a’rada 'anhaa wa nasiya maa qaddamat yadaah; innaa ja’alnaa 'alaa quloobihim akinnatan any yafqahoohu wa feee aazaanihim waqraa; wa in tad’uhum ilal hudaa falany yahtadooo izan abadaa
And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord but turns away from them and forgets what his hands have put forth? Indeed, We have placed over their hearts coverings, lest they understand it, and in their ears deafness. And if you invite them to guidance - they will never be guided, then - ever.
58.Wa Rabbukal Ghafooru zur rahmati law yu’aakhi zuhum bimaa kasaboo la’ajala lahumul 'azaab; bal lahum maw’idul lany yajidoo min doonihee maw’ilaa
And your Lord is the Forgiving, full of mercy. If He were to impose blame upon them for what they earned, He would have hastened for them the punishment. Rather, for them is an appointment from which they will never find an escape.
59. Wa tkal quraaa ahlak nahum lammaa zulamoo wa ja’alnaa limahlikihim maw’idaa
And those cities - We destroyed them when they wronged, and We made for their destruction an appointed time.
60. Wa iz qaalaa Moosaa lifataahu laaa abrahu hattaaa ablugha majma’al bahrayni aw amdiya huqubaa
And [mention] when Moses said to his servant, “I will not cease [traveling] until I reach the junction of the two seas or continue for a long period.”
61. Falammaa balaghaa majma’a bainihimaa nasiyaa hootahumaa fattakhaza sabeelahoo fil bahri sarabaa
But when they reached the junction between them, they forgot their fish, and it took its course into the sea, slipping away.
62. Falammaa jaawazaa qaala lifataahu aatinaa ghadaaa’anaa laqad laqeena min safarinaa haazaa nasabaa
So when they had passed beyond it, [Moses] said to his boy, “Bring us our morning meal. We have certainly suffered in this, our journey, [much] fatigue.”
63. Qaala ara’ayta iz awainaaa ilas sakhrati fa innee naseetul hoota wa maaa ansaaneehu illash Shaitaanu an azkurah; wattakhaza sabeelahoo fil bahri’ajabaa
He said, “Did you see when we retired to the rock? Indeed, I forgot [there] the fish. And none made me forget it except Satan - that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea amazingly”.
64. Qaala zaalika maa kunnaa nabgh; fartaddaa 'alaa aasaari him maa qasasaa
[Moses] said, “That is what we were seeking.” So they returned, following their footprints.
65. Fa wajadaa 'abdam min 'ibaadinaaa aatainaahu Rahmatam min 'indinaa wa 'allamnaahu mil ladunnaa 'ilmaa
And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.
66. Qaala lahoo Moosaa hal attabi’uka 'alaaa an tu’allimani mimmaa 'ullimta rushdaa
Moses said to him, “May I follow you on [the condition] that you teach me from what you have been taught of sound judgement?”
67. Qaalaa innaka lan tastatee’a ma’iya sabraa
He said, “Indeed, with me you will never be able to have patience.
68. Wa kaifa tasbiru 'alaa maa lam tuhit bihee khubraa
And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge?”
69. Qaala satajiduneee in shaa 'al laahu saabiranw wa laaa a’see laka amraa
[Moses] said, “You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order.”
70. Qaala fa init taba’tanee falaa tas’alnee 'an shai’in hattaaa uhdisa laka minhu zikraa
He said, “Then if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mention.”
71. Fantalaqaa hattaaa izaa rakibaa fis safeenati kharaqahaa qaala akharaqtahaa litughriqa ahlahaa laqad ji’ta shai’an imraa
So they set out, until when they had embarked on the ship, al-Khidh r tore it open. [Moses] said, “Have you torn it open to drown its people? You have certainly done a grave thing.”
72. Qaala alam aqul innaka lan tastatee’a ma’iya sabraa
[Al-Khidh r] said, “Did I not say that with me you would never be able to have patience?”
73. Qaala laa tu’aakhiznee bimaa naseetu wa laa turhiqnee min amree 'usraa
[Moses] said, “Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty.”
74. Fantalaqaa hattaa izaa laqiyaa ghulaaman faqatalahoo qaala aqatalta nafsan zakiy yatam bighairi nafs; laqad ji’ta shai’an nukraa
So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidh r killed him. [Moses] said, “Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing.”
75. Qaala alam aqul laka innaka lan tastatee’a ma’iya sabraa
[Al-Khidh r] said, “Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?”
76. Qaala in sa altuka 'an shai’im ba’dahaa falaa tusaahibnee qad balaghta mil ladunnee 'uzraa
[Moses] said, “If I should ask you about anything after this, then do not keep me as a companion. You have obtained from me an excuse.”
77. Fantalaqaa hattaaa izaaa atayaaa ahla qaryatinis tat’amaaa ahlahaa fa abaw any yudaiyifoohumaa fawajadaa feehaa jidaarany yureedu any yanqadda fa aqaamah; qaala law shi’ta lattakhazta 'alaihi ajraa
So they set out, until when they came to the people of a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them hospitality. And they found therein a wall about to collapse, so al-Khidh r restored it. [Moses] said, “If you wished, you could have taken for it a payment.”
78. Qaala haazaa firaaqu bainee wa bainik; sa unabi ‘uka bitaaweeli maa lam tastati’ ‘alaihi sabraa
[Al-Khidh r] said, "This is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience.
79. Ammas safeenatu fakaanat limasaakeena ya’maloona fil bahri fa arattu an a’eebahaa wa kaana waraaa’ ahum malikuny yaakhuzu kulla safeenatin ghasbaa
As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working at sea. So I intended to cause defect in it as there was after them a king who seized every [good] ship by force.
80. Wa aammal ghulaamu fakaana abawaahu mu’minaini fakhasheenaaa any yurhiqa humaa tughyaananw wa kufraa
And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief.
81. Faradnaa any yubdila humaa Rabbuhumaa khairam minhu zakaatanw wa aqraba ruhmaa
So we intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy.
82. Wa ammal jidaaru fakaana lighulaamaini yateemaini fil madeenati wa kaana tahtahoo kanzul lahumaa wa kaana aboohumaa saalihan fa araada Rabbuka any yablughaaa ashuddahumaa wa yastakhrijaa kanzahumaa rahmatam mir Rabbik; wa maa fa’altuhoo ‘an amree; zaalika taaweelu maa lam tasti’ 'alaihi sabra
And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience."
83. Wa yas’aloonaka 'an Zil Qarnaini qul sa atloo 'alaikum minhu zikraa
And they ask you, [O Muhammad], about Dhul-Qarnayn. Say, “I will recite to you about him a report.”
84. Innaa makkannaa lahoo fil ardi wa aatainaahu min kulli shai’in sababaa
Indeed We established him upon the earth, and We gave him to everything a way.
85. Fa atba’a sababaa
So he followed a way
