يس 1
Dr. Mustafa Khattab Yâ-Sĩn.

وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ 2
Dr. Mustafa Khattab By the Quran, rich in wisdom!

إِنَّكَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ 3
Dr. Mustafa Khattab You ˹O Prophet˺ are truly one of the messengers

عَلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ 4
Dr. Mustafa Khattab upon the Straight Path.

تَنْزِيلَ الْعَزِيزِ الرَّحِيمِ 5
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹This is˺ a revelation from the Almighty, Most Merciful,

لِتُنْذِرَ قَوْمًا ﭿ مَا أُنْذِرَ آبَاؤُهُمْ فَهُمْ غَافِلُونَ 6
Dr. Mustafa Khattab so that you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, and so are heedless.

لَقَدْ حَقَّ الْقَوْلُ عَلَىٰ أَكْثَرِهِمْ فَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ 7
Dr. Mustafa Khattab The decree ˹of torment˺ has already been justified against most of them, for they will never believe.

إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا فِي أَعْنَاقِهِمْ أَغْلَالًا فَهِيَ إِلَى الْأَذْقَانِ فَهُمْ مُقْمَحُونَ 8
Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹It is as if˺ We have put shackles around their necks up to their chins, so their heads are forced up,

وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْ بَيْنِ أَيْدِيهِمْ سَدًّا وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ سَدًّا فَأَغْشَيْنَاهُمْ فَهُمْ لَا يُبْصِرُونَ 9
Dr. Mustafa Khattab and have placed a barrier before them and a barrier behind them and covered them ˹all˺ up, so they fail to see ˹the truth˺.

وَسَوَاءٌ عَلَيْهِمْ أَأَنْذَرْتَهُمْ أَمْ لَمْ تُنْذِرْهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ 10
Dr. Mustafa Khattab It is the same whether you warn them or not—they will never believe.

إِنَّمَا تُنْذِرُ مَنِ اتَّبَعَ الذِّكْرَ وَخَشِيَ الرَّحْمَٰنَ بِالْغَيْبِ فَبَشِّرْهُ بِمَغْفِرَةٍ وَأَجْرٍ كَرِيمٍ 11
Dr. Mustafa Khattab You can only warn those who follow the Reminder1 and are in awe of the Most Compassionate without seeing Him.2 So give them good news of forgiveness and an honourable reward.
