35. Fâtir or AlMalâ'ikah
In the Name of Allâh, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. All the praises
and thanks be to Allâh, the (only) Originator [or the (only)
Creator] of the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels messengers
with wings, - two or three or four. He increases in creation what
He wills. Verily, Allâh is Able to do all things.
2. Whatever of mercy
(i.e.of good), Allâh may grant to mankind, none can withhold
it, and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter.
And He is the AllMighty, the AllWise.
3. O mankind! Remember
the Grace of Allâh upon you! Is there any creator other
than Allâh who provides for you from the sky (rain) and
the earth? Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the
right to be worshipped but He). How then are you turning away
4. And if they belie
you (O Muhammad SAW),
so were Messengers belied before you. And to Allâh return
all matters (for decision).
5. O mankind! Verily,
the Promise of Allâh is true. So let not this present life
deceive you, and let not the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you
6. Surely, Shaitân
(Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He
only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become
the dwellers of the blazing Fire.
7. Those who disbelieve,
theirs will be a severe torment; and those who believe (in the
Oneness of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism) and do righteous
good deeds, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e.
8. Is he, then, to
whom the evil of his deeds made fairseeming, so that he
considers it as good (equal to one who is rightly guided)? Verily,
Allâh sends astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills.
So destroy not yourself (O Muhammad SAW)
in sorrow for them. Truly, Allâh is the AllKnower
of what they do!
9. And it is Allâh
Who sends the winds, so that they raise up the clouds, and We
drive them to a dead land, and revive therewith the earth after
its death. As such (will be) the Resurrection!
10. Whosoever desires
honour, power and glory then to Allâh belong all honour,
power and glory [and one can get honour, power and glory only
by obeying and worshipping Allâh (Alone)]. To Him ascend
(all) the goodly words, and the righteous deeds exalt it (the
goodly words i.e. the goodly words are not accepted by Allâh
unless and until they are followed by good deeds), but those who
plot evils, theirs will be severe torment. And the plotting of
such will perish.
11. And Allâh
did create you (Adam) from dust, then from Nutfah (male
and female discharge semen drops i.e. Adam's offspring), then
He made you pairs (male and female). And no female conceives or
gives birth, but with His Knowledge. And no aged man is granted
a length of life, nor is a part cut off from his life (or another
man's life), but is in a Book (AlLauh AlMahfûz)
Surely, that is easy for Allâh.
12. And the two seas
(kinds of water) are not alike, this fresh sweet, and pleasant
to drink, and that saltish and bitter. And from them both you
eat fresh tender meat (fish), and derive the ornaments that you
wear. And you see the ships cleaving (the seawater as they
sail through it), that you may seek of His Bounty, and that you
may give thanks.
13. He merges the
night into the day (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the night
are added to the hours of the day), and He merges the day into
the night (i.e. the decrease in the hours of the day are added
to the hours of the night). And He has subjected the sun and the
moon, each runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allâh
your Lord; His is the kingdom. And those, whom you invoke or call
upon instead of Him, own not even a Qitmîr (the thin
membrane over the datestone).
14. If you invoke
(or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case)
they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you.
And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping
them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad SAW) like Him Who is the AllKnower
(of each and everything).
15. O mankind! it
is you who stand in need of Allâh, but Allâh is Rich
(Free of all wants and needs), Worthy of all praise.
16. If He will, He
could destroy you and bring about a new creation.
17. And that is not hard
18. And no bearer
of burdens shall bear another's burden, and if one heavily laden
calls another to (bear) his load, nothing of it will be lifted
even though he be near of kin. You (O Muhammad SAW) can warn only those who fear
their Lord unseen, and perform As-Salât (IqâmatasSalât).
And he who purifies himself (from all kinds of sins), then he
purifies only for the benefit of his ownself. And to Allâh
is the (final) Return (of all).
19. Not alike are
the blind (disbelievers in Islâmic Monotheism) and the seeing
(believers in Islâmic Monotheism).
20. Nor are (alike)
the darkness (disbelief) and the light (Belief in Islâmic
21. Nor are (alike)
the shade and the sun's heat.
22. Nor are (alike)
the living (believers) and the dead (disbelievers). Verily, Allâh
makes whom He will hear, but you cannot make hear those who are
23. You (O Muhammad
SAW) are only a warner (i.e. your
duty is to convey Allâh's Message to mankind but the guidance
is in Allâh's Hand).
24. Verily! We have
sent you with the truth, a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner.
And there never was a nation but a warner had passed among them.
25. And if they belie
you, those before them also belied. Their Messengers came to them
with clear signs, and with the Scriptures, and the book giving
26. Then I took hold
of those who disbelieved, and how terrible was My denial (punishment)!
27. See you not that
Allâh sends down water (rain) from the sky, and We produce
therewith fruits of varying colours, and among the mountains are
streaks white and red, of varying colours and (others) very black.
28. And of men and
AdDawâb (moving living creatures, beasts,
etc.), and cattle, in like manner of various colours. It is only
those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allâh.
Verily, Allâh is AllMighty, OftForgiving.
29. Verily, those
who recite the Book of Allâh (this Qur'ân), and perform
and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided for them,
secretly and openly, hope for a (sure) tradegain that will
30. That He may pay
them their wages in full, and give them (even) more, out of His
Grace. Verily! He is OftForgiving, Most Ready to appreciate
(good deeds and to recompense).
31. And what We have
inspired in you (O Muhammad SAW),
of the Book (the Qur'ân), it is the (very) truth [that you
and your followers must act on its instructions], confirming that
which was (revealed) before it. Verily! Allâh is indeed
AllAware, and AllSeer of His slaves.
32. Then We gave
the Book the Qur'ân) for inheritance to such of Our slaves
whom We chose (the followers of Muhammad SAW). Then of them are some who wrong
their ownselves, and of them are some who follow a middle course,
and of them are some who are, by Allâh's Leave, foremost
in good deeds. That (inheritance of the Qur'ân), that is
indeed a great grace.
(Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) will they enter, therein
will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their
garments there will be of silk (i.e. in Paradise).
34. And they will
say: "All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, Who has
removed from us (all) grief. Verily, our Lord is indeed OftForgiving,
Most Ready to appreciate (good deeds and to recompense).
35. Who, out of His
Grace, has lodged us in a home that will last forever; there,
toil will touch us not, nor weariness will touch us."
36. But those who
disbelieve, (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism)
for them will be the Fire of Hell. Neither it will have a complete
killing effect on them so that they die, nor shall its torment
be lightened for them. Thus do We requite every disbeliever!
37. Therein they
will cry: "Our Lord! Bring us out, we shall do righteous
good deeds, not (the evil deeds) that we used to do." (Allâh
will reply): "Did We not give you lives long enough, so that
whosoever would receive admonition, - could receive it? And the
warner came to you. So taste you (the evil of your deeds). For
the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers,
etc.) there is no helper."
38. Verily, Allâh
is the AllKnower of the unseen of the heavens and the earth.
Verily! He is the AllKnower of that is in the breasts.
39. He it is Who
has made you successors generations after generations in the earth,
so whosoever disbelieves (in Islâmic Monotheism) on him
will be his disbelief. And the disbelief of the disbelievers adds
nothing but hatred with their Lord. And the disbelief of the disbelievers
adds nothing but loss.
40. Say (O Muhammad
SAW): "Tell me or inform me (what)
do you think about your (socalled) partnergods to
whom you call upon besides Allâh, show me, what they have
created of the earth? Or have they any share in the heavens? Or
have We given them a Book, so that they act on clear proof therefrom?
Nay, the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers,
etc.) promise one another nothing but delusions."
41. Verily! Allâh
grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their
places, and if they were to move away from their places, there
is not one that could grasp them after Him. Truly, He is Ever
Most Forbearing, OftForgiving.
42. And they swore
by Allâh their most binding oath, that if a warner came
to them, they would be more guided than any of the nations (before
them), yet when a warner (Muhammad SAW)
came to them, it increased in them nothing but flight (from the
43. (They took to
flight because of their) arrogance in the land and their plotting
of evil. But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it.
Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way
of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find
in Allâh's Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning
off will you find in Allâh's Sunnah (way of dealing).
44. Have they not
travelled in the land, and seen what was the end of those before
them, and they were superior to them in power? Allâh is
not such that anything in the heavens or in the earth escapes
Him. Verily, He is AllKnowing, AllOmnipotent.
45. And if Allâh
were to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave
a moving (living) creature on the surface of the earth, but He
gives them respite to an appointed term, and when their term comes,
then verily, Allâh is Ever AllSeer of His slaves.
