60. Behold! We told thee that thy Lord doth encompass mankind round about: We

granted the vision which We showed thee, but as a trial for men,- as also the Cursed Tree

(mentioned) in the Qur'an: We put terror (and warning) into them, but it only increases

their inordinate transgression!

Section 7 (61-70)

61. Wa-ith qulna lilmala-ikati osjudoo li-adama fasajadoo illa ibleesa qala aasjudu liman

khalaqta teena


61. Behold! We said to the angels: "Bow down unto Adam": They bowed down except

Iblis: He said, "Shall I bow down to one whom Thou didst create from clay?"

62. Qala araaytaka hatha allathee karramta AAalayya la-in akhkhartani ila yawmi

alqiyamati laahtanikanna thurriyyatahu illa qaleela


62. He said: "Seest Thou? this is the one whom Thou hast honoured above me! If Thou

wilt but respite me to the Day of Judgment, I will surely bring his descendants under my

sway - all but a few!"
