The Surah in Al-Quran which revealed at Mecca.

Beyond... and beyond....

1.  Alif. Lam. Mim. Sad.

2.  (It is) a Scripture that is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) - so let there be no heaviness in thy heart thereform - that thou mayest warn thereby, an (it is) a Reminder unto believers.

3.  (Saying): Follow that which is sent down unto you from your Lor, ang follow no protecting friends beside Him. Little do ye recollect!

4.  How many a township have We destroyed! As a raid by night, or while they slept at noon, Our terror came unto them.

5.  No plea had they, when Our terror came unto them, save that they said: Lo! We were wrong-doers.

6.  Then verily We shall question those unto whom (Our message) hath been sent, and verily We shall question the messengers.

7.  Then verily We shall narrate unto them (the event) with knowledge, for verily We were not absent (when it came to pass).

8.  The weighing on that day is the true (weighing). As for those whose scale is is heavy, they are the successful.

9.  And for those whose scale is light: those are they who lose their souls because they disbelieved Our revelations.

10. And We have given you (mankind) power in the earth and appointed for you therein a livelihood. Little give ye thenks!

11. And We created you, then fashioned you, then told the angels: Fall ye prostrate before Adam! And they fell prostrate all save iblis, who was not of those wgo make prostration.

12. He said: What hindered thee that thou didst not fall prostrate when I bade thee? (Iblis) said: I am better than him. Thou createdst me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud.

13. He said: Then go down hence! It is not for thee to show pride here, so go forth! Lo! thou art of those degraded.

14. He said: Reprieve me till the day when they are raised (from the dead).

15. He said: Lo! thou art of those reprieved.

16. He said: Now, because Thou hast sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Thy Right Path.

17.  And I shall come upon them from before them from behind them an from their right hands and from their left hands, and Thou wilt not find most of them beholden (unto Thee).

18. He said: Go forth from hence, degraded, banished. As for such of them as follow thee, surely I will fill hel with all of you.

19.  An (unto man): O Adam! Dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden and eat from whence ye will, but come not nigh this tree lest ye become wrong-doers.

Allahu-akbar... where is our destiny?

20. Then Satan whispered to them that he might manifest unto them that which was hidden from them of their shame, and he said: Your Lord forbade you from this tree only lest ye should become angels or become of the immortals.

21. And he swore unto them (saying): Lo! I am a sincere adviser unto you.

22. Thus did he lead them on with gile. And When they tasted of the tree their shame was manifest to them aand they began to hide (by heaping) on themselves som of the leaves of the Garden. And Their Lord called them, (saying): Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you: Lo! Satan is an open enemy to you?

23. They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If Thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost!

24. HE said: Go down (from hence), one of you a foe unto the other. There will be for you on earth a habitation and provision for a while.

25. HE said: There shall ye live, and there shall ye die, and thence shall ye be brought forth.

Let not Satan seduce you...

26. O Children of Adam! We have revealed unto you raiment to conceal your shame, and splendid vesture, but the raimentof restraint from evil, that is best. This is of the revelations of Allah, that they may remember.

27. O Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you as he caused your (first) parents to go forth from the Garden and tore off from them their robe (of innocence) that he might manifest their shame to them. Lo! he seeth you, he and his tribe, from whence ye see him not. Lo! We have made the devils protecting friends for those who believe not.

28. And when they do some lewdness they say: We found our fathers doing it and Allah hath enjoined it on us. Say: Allah, verily, enjoineth not lewdness. Tell ye concerning Allah that whick ye know not?

29. Say: My Lord enjoineth justice. And set your faces, upright (toward Him) at every place of worship and call upon Him, making religion pure for Him (only). As He brought you into being, so return ye (unto Him).

30. A party hath He led aright, while error hath just hold over (another) party, for lo! they choose the devils for protecting friends of Allah and deem that they are rightly guided.

31. O Children of Adam! Look to your adornment at every place of worship, and eat and drink, but be not prodigal. Lo! He loveth not the prodigals.
