In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. All the praises
and thanks be to Allâh, to Whom belongs all that is in the
heavens and all that is in the earth. His is all the praises and
thanks in the Hereafter, and He is the AllWise, the AllAware.
2. He knows that
which goes into the earth and that which comes forth from it,
and that which descend from the heaven and that which ascends
to it. And He is the Most Merciful, the OftForgiving.
3. Those who disbelieve
say: "The Hour will not come to us." Say: "Yes,
by my Lord, it will come to you." (Allâh, He is) the
AllKnower of the unseen, not even the weight of an atom
(or a small ant) or less than that or greater, escapes from His
Knowledge in the heavens or in the earth, but it is in a Clear
Book (AlLauh AlMahfûz).
4. That He may recompense
those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh Islâmic
Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds. Those, theirs is forgiveness
and Rizqun Karîm (generous provision, i.e. Paradise).
5. But those who
strive against Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses,
lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) to frustrate them, those,
for them will be a severe painful torment.
6. And those who
have been given knowledge see that what is revealed to you (O
from your Lord is the truth, and guides to the Path of the Exalted
in Might, Owner of all praise.
7. Those who disbelieve
say: "Shall we direct you to a man (Muhammad SAW) who will tell you (that) when
you have become fully disintegrated into dust with full dispersion,
then, you will be created (again) anew?"
8. Has he (Muhammad
SAW) invented a lie against Allâh,
or is there a madness in him? Nay, but those who disbelieve in
the Hereafter are (themselves) in a torment, and in far error.
9. See they not what
is before them and what is behind them, of the heaven and the
earth? If We will, We shall sink the earth with them, or cause
a piece of the heaven to fall upon them. Verily, in this is a
sign for every faithful believer that [believes in the Oneness
of Allâh], and turns to Allâh (in all affairs with
humility and in repentance).
10. And indeed We
bestowed grace on David from Us (saying): "O you mountains.
Glorify (Allâh) with him! And you birds (also)! And We made
the iron soft for him."
11. Saying: "Make
you perfect coats of mail, balancing well the rings of chain armour,
and work you (men) righteousness. Truly, I am AllSeer of
what you do."
12. And to Solomon
(We subjected) the wind, its morning (stride from sunrise till
midnoon) was a month's (journey), and its afternoon (stride from
the midday decline of the sun to sunset) was a month's (journey
i.e. in one day he could travel two months' journey). And We caused
a fount of (molten) brass to flow for him, and there were jinns
that worked in front of him, by the Leave of his Lord, and whosoever
of them turned aside from Our Command, We shall cause him to taste
of the torment of the blazing Fire.
13. They worked for
him what he desired, (making) high rooms, images, basins as large
as reservoirs, and (cooking) cauldrons fixed (in their places).
"Work you, O family of Dâwud (David), with thanks!"
But few of My slaves are grateful.
14. Then when We
decreed death for him [Sulaimân (Solomon)], nothing informed
them (jinns) of his death except a little worm of the earth, which
kept (slowly) gnawing away at his stick, so when he fell down,
the jinns saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they
would not have stayed in the humiliating torment.
15. Indeed there
was for Saba' (Sheba) a sign in their dwelling place, - two gardens
on the right hand and on the left (and it was said to them) "Eat
of the provision of your Lord, and be grateful to Him, a fair
land and an OftForgiving Lord.
16. But they turned
away (from the obedience of Allâh), so We sent against them
Sail Al'Arim (flood released from the dam), and We
converted their two gardens into gardens producing bitter bad
fruit, and tamarisks, and some few lotetrees.
17. Like this We
requited them because they were ungrateful disbelievers. And never
do We requit in such a way except those who are ungrateful, (disbelievers).
18. And We placed
between them and the towns which We had blessed, towns easy to
be seen, and We made the stages (of journey) between them easy
(saying): "Travel in them safely both by night and day."
19. But they said:
"Our Lord! Make the stages between our journey longer,"
and they wronged themselves, so We made them as tales (in the
land), and We dispersed them all, totally. Verily, in this are
indeed signs for every steadfast grateful (person).
20. And indeed Iblîs
(Satan) did prove true his thought about them, and
they followed him, all except a group of true believers (in the
Oneness of Allâh).
21. And he (Iblîs
Satan) had no authority over them, except that We
might test him, who believes in the Hereafter from him who is
in doubt about it. And your Lord is a Hafiz over everything.
(AllKnower of everything i.e. He keeps record of each and
every person as regards deeds, and then He will reward them accordingly).
22. Say: (O Muhammad
SAW to those polytheists, pagans,
etc.) "Call upon those whom you assert (to be associate gods)
besides Allâh, they possess not even the weight of an atom
(or a small ant), either in the heavens or on the earth, nor
have they any share in either, nor there is for Him any supporter
from among them.
with Him profits not, except for him whom He permits. Until when
fear is banished from their (angels') hearts, they (angels) say:
"What is it that your Lord has said?" They say: "The
truth. And He is the Most High, the Most Great."
24. Say (O Muhammad
SAW to these polytheists, pagans,
etc.) "Who gives you provision from the heavens and the earth?"
Say: "Allâh, And verily, (either) we or you are rightly
guided or in a plain error."
25. Say (O Muhammad
SAW to these polytheists, pagans,
etc.) "You will not be asked about our sins, nor shall we
be asked of what you do."
26. Say: "Our
Lord will assemble us all together (on the Day of Resurrection),
then He will judge between us with truth. And He is the (Most
Trustworthy) AllKnowing Judge."
27. Say (O Muhammad
SAW to these polytheists and pagans):
"Show me those whom you have joined to Him as partners. Nay
(there are not at all any partners with Him)! But He is Allâh
(Alone), the AllMighty, the AllWise."
28. And We have not
sent you (O Muhammad SAW)
except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind,
but most of men know not.
29. And they say:
"When is this promise (i.e. the Day of Resurrection will
be fulfilled) if you are truthful?"
30. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "The appointment to you
is for a Day, which you cannot put back for an hour (or a moment)
nor put forward."
31. And those who
disbelieve say: "We believe not in this Qur'ân nor
in that which was before it," but if you could see when the
Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers,
etc.) will be made to stand before their Lord, how they will cast
the (blaming) word one to another! Those who were deemed weak
will say to those who were arrogant: "Had it not been for
you, we should certainly have been believers!"
32. And those who
were arrogant will say to those who were deemed weak: "Did
we keep you back from guidance after it had come to you? Nay,
but you were Mujrimûn (polytheists, sinners, criminals,
disobedient to Allâh, etc.).
33. Those who were
deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: "Nay, but
it was your plotting by night and day, when you ordered us to
disbelieve in Allâh and set up rivals to Him!" And
each of them (parties) will conceal their own regrets (for disobeying
Allâh during this worldly life), when they behold the torment.
And We shall put iron collars round the necks of those who disbelieved.
Are they requited aught except what they used to do?
34. And We did not
send a warner to a township, but those who were given the worldly
wealth and luxuries among them said: "We believe not in the
(Message) with which you have been sent."
35. And they say:
"We are more in wealth and in children, and we are not going
to be punished."
36. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "Verily, my Lord enlarges
and restricts the provision to whom He pleases, but most men know
37. And it is not
your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us (i.e.
pleases Allâh), but only he (will please Us) who believes
(in the Islâmic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds; as
for such, there will be twofold reward for what they did, and
they will reside in the high dwellings (Paradise) in peace and
38. And those who
strive against Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses,
lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), to frustrate them, will be
brought to the torment.
39. Say: "Truly,
my Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His slaves,
and (also) restricts (it) for him, and whatsoever you spend of
anything (in Allâh's Cause), He will replace it. And He
is the Best of providers."
40. And (remember)
the Day when He will gather them all together, and then will say
to the angels: "Was it you that these people used to worship?"
41. They (angels)
will say: "Glorified be You! You are our Walî
(Lord) instead of them. Nay, but they used to worship the jinns;
most of them were believers in them."
42. So Today (i.e.
the Day of Resurrection), none of you can profit or harm one another.
And We shall say to those who did wrong [i.e. worshipped others
(like angels, jinns, prophets, saints, righteous persons, etc.)
along with Allâh]: "Taste the torment of the Fire which
you used to belie.
43. And when Our
Clear Verses are recited to them, they say: "This (Muhammad
SAW) is naught but a man who wishes
to hinder you from that which your fathers used to worship."
And they say: "This is nothing but an invented lie."
And those who disbelieve say of the truth when it has come to
them (i.e. Prophet Muhammad SAW
when Allâh sent him as a Messenger with proofs, evidences,
verses, lessons, signs, etc.): "This is nothing but evident
44. And We had not
given them Scriptures which they could study, nor sent to them
before you (O Muhammad SAW)
any warner (Messenger).
45. And those before
them belied; these have not received one tenth (1/10th) of what
We had granted to those (of old), yet they belied My Messengers,
then how (terrible) was My denial (punishment)!
46. Say (to them O Muhammad
SAW): "I exhort you on one (thing)
only: that you stand up for Allâh's sake in pairs and singly,
and reflect (within yourselves the life history of the Prophet
SAW): there is no madness in your
companion (Muhammad SAW),
he is only a warner to you in face of a severe torment."
47. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "Whatever wage I might
have asked of you is yours. My wage is from Allâh only.
and He is Witness over all things."
48. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "Verily! My Lord sends
down Inspiration and makes apparent the truth (i.e. this Revelation
that had come to me), the AllKnower of the Ghaib
49. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "The truth (the Qur'ân
and Allâh's Inspiration) has come, and AlBâtil
[falsehood - Iblîs (Satan)] can neither create anything
nor resurrect (anything)."
50. Say: "If
(even) I go astray, I shall stray only to my own loss. But if
I remain guided, it is because of the Inspiration of my Lord to
me. Truly, He is AllHearer, Ever Near (to all things)."
51. And if you could
but see, when they will be terrified with no escape (for them),
and they will be seized from a near place.
52. And they will
say (in the Hereafter): "We do believe (now);" but how
could they receive (Faith and the acceptance of their repentance
by Allâh) from a place so far off (i.e. to return to the
worldly life again).
53. Indeed they did
disbelieve (in the Oneness of Allâh, Islâm, the Qur'ân
and Muhammad SAW)
before (in this world), and they (used to) conjecture about the
unseen [i.e. the Hereafter, Hell, Paradise, Resurrection and the
Promise of Allâh, etc. (by saying) all that is untrue],
from a far place.
54. And a barrier
will be set between them and that which they desire [i.e. At-Taubah
(turning to Allâh in repentance) and the accepting of
Faith etc.], as was done in the past with the people of their
kind. Verily, they have been in grave doubt.
