In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
[These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'ân,
and none but Allâh (Alone) knows their meanings.]
2. The revelation
of the Book (this Qur'ân) is from the Lord of the 'Alamîn
(mankind, jinns and all that exists) in which there is not doubt!
3. Or say they: "He
has fabricated it?" Nay, it is the truth from your Lord,
that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come before you
(O Muhammad SAW),
in order that they may be guided.
4. Allâh it
is He Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all that
is between them in six Days. Then He Istawâ (rose
over) the Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). You (mankind)
have none, besides Him, as a Walî (protector or helper
etc.) or an intercessor. Will you not then remember (or be admonished)?
5. He arranges (every)
affair from the heavens to the earth, then it (affair) will go
up to Him, in one Day, the space whereof is a thousand years of
your reckoning (i.e. reckoning of our present world's time).
6. That is He, the
AllKnower of the unseen and the seen, the AllMighty,
the Most Merciful.
7. Who made everything
He has created good, and He began the creation of man from clay.
8. Then He made his
offspring from semen of worthless water (male and female sexual
9. Then He fashioned
him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul (created
by Allâh for that person), and He gave you hearing (ears),
sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give!
10. And they say:
"When we are (dead and become) lost in the earth, shall we
indeed be recreated anew?" Nay, but they deny the Meeting
with their Lord!
11. Say: "The
angel of death, who is set over you, will take your souls, then
you shall be brought to your Lord."
12. And if you only
could see when the Mujrimûn (criminals, disbelievers,
polytheists, sinners, etc.) shall hang their heads before their
Lord (saying): "Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so
send us back (to the world), we will do righteous good deeds.
Verily! We now believe with certainty."
13. And if We had
willed, surely! We would have given every person his guidance,
but the Word from Me took effect (about evildoers), that
I will fill Hell with jinn and mankind together.
14. Then taste you
(the torment of the Fire) because of your forgetting the Meeting
of this Day of yours, (and) surely! We too will forget you, so
taste you the abiding torment for what you used to do.
15. Only those believe
in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.), who, when they are reminded of them
fall down prostrate, and glorify the Praises of their Lord, and
they are not proud.
16. Their sides forsake
their beds, to invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend
(charity in Allâh's Cause) out of what We have bestowed
17. No person knows
what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what they
used to do.
18. Is then he who
is a believer like him who is Fâsiq (disbeliever
and disobedient to Allâh)? Not equal are they.
19. As for those
who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism)
and do righteous good deeds, for them are Gardens (Paradise) as
an entertainment, for what they used to do.
20. And as for those
who are Fâsiqûn (disbelievers and disobedient
to Allâh), their abode will be the Fire, every time they
wish to get away therefrom, they will be put back thereto, and
it will be said to them: "Taste you the torment of the Fire
which you used to deny."
21. And verily, We
will make them taste of the near torment (i.e. the torment in
the life of this world, i.e. disasters, calamities, etc.) prior
to the supreme torment (in the Hereafter), in order that they
may (repent and) return (i.e. accept Islâm).
22. And who does
more wrong than he who is reminded of the Ayât (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of his Lord,
then he turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution
from the Mujrimûn (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists,
23. And indeed We
gave Mûsa (Moses) the Scripture [the Taurât (Torah)].
So be not you in doubt of meeting him [i.e.when you met Mûsa
(Moses) during the night of AlIsra' and AlMi'râj
over the heavens]. And We made it [the Taurât (Torah)] a
guide to the Children of Israel.
24. And We made from
among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under
Our Command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty
in Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.).
25. Verily, your
Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection, concerning
that wherein they used to differ.
26. Is it not a guidance
for them, how many generations We have destroyed before them in
whose dwellings they do walk about? Verily, therein indeed are
signs. Would they not then listen?
27. Have they not
seen how We drive water (rain clouds) to the dry land without
any vegetation, and therewith bring forth crops providing food
for their cattle and themselves? Will they not then see?
28. They say: "When
will this AlFath (Decision) be (between us and you,
i.e. the Day of Resurrection), if you are telling the truth?"
29. Say: "On
the Day of AlFath (Decision), no profit will it be
to those who disbelieve if they (then) believe! Nor will they
be granted a respite."
30. So turn aside from
them (O Muhammad SAW)
and await, verily they (too) are awaiting.
