M. H. Shakir, The Holy Quran; Arabic Text and English Translation; Foot-notes by M. H. Shakir (1974)

130. Peace be on Ilyas.

131. Even thus do We reward the doers of good.

132. Surely he was one of Our believing servants.

133. And Lut was most surely of the apostles.

134. When We delivered him and his followers, all —

135. Except an old woman (who was) amongst those who tarried.

136. Then We destroyed the others.

137. And most surely you pass by them in the morning,

138. And at night; do you not then understand?

Section 5

139. And Yunus was most surely of the apostles.

140. When he ran away to a ship completely laden,

141. So he shared (with them), but was of those who are cast off.

142. So the fish swallowed him while he did that for which he blamed himself.

143. But had it not been that he was of those who glorify (Us),

144. He would certainly have tarried in its belly to the day when they are raised.

145. Then We cast him on to the vacant surface of the earth while he was sick.

146. And We caused to grow up for him a gourdplant.

147. And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.

148. And they believed, so We gave them provision till a time.

149. Then ask them whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons.
