بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ سُبحٰنَ الَّذى أَسرىٰ بِعَبدِهِ لَيلًا مِنَ المَسجِدِ الحَرامِ إِلَى المَسجِدِ الأَقصَا الَّذى بٰرَكنا حَولَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِن ءايٰتِنا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ(1)
Glory be to Him, who carried His servant by night from the Holy Mosque to the Further Mosque the precincts of which We have blessed, that We might show him some of Our signs. He is the All-hearing, the All-seeing.(1)
وَءاتَينا موسَى الكِتٰبَ وَجَعَلنٰهُ هُدًى لِبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ أَلّا تَتَّخِذوا مِن دونى وَكيلًا(2)
And We gave Moses the Book, and made it a guidance to the Children of Israel: 'Take not unto yourselves any guardian apart from Me.'(2)
ذُرِّيَّةَ مَن حَمَلنا مَعَ نوحٍ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ عَبدًا شَكورًا(3)
The seed of those We bore with Noah; he was a thankful servant.(3)
وَقَضَينا إِلىٰ بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ فِى الكِتٰبِ لَتُفسِدُنَّ فِى الأَرضِ مَرَّتَينِ وَلَتَعلُنَّ عُلُوًّا كَبيرًا(4)
And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the Book: 'You shall do corruption in the earth twice, and you shall ascend exceeding high.'(4)
فَإِذا جاءَ وَعدُ أولىٰهُما بَعَثنا عَلَيكُم عِبادًا لَنا أُولى بَأسٍ شَديدٍ فَجاسوا خِلٰلَ الدِّيارِ ۚ وَكانَ وَعدًا مَفعولًا(5)
So, when the promise of the first of these came to pass, We sent against you servants of Ours, men of great might, and they went through the habitations, and it was a promise performed.(5)
ثُمَّ رَدَدنا لَكُمُ الكَرَّةَ عَلَيهِم وَأَمدَدنٰكُم بِأَموٰلٍ وَبَنينَ وَجَعَلنٰكُم أَكثَرَ نَفيرًا(6)
Then We gave back to you the turn to prevail over them, and We succoured you with wealth and children, and We made you a greater host.(6)
إِن أَحسَنتُم أَحسَنتُم لِأَنفُسِكُم ۖ وَإِن أَسَأتُم فَلَها ۚ فَإِذا جاءَ وَعدُ الءاخِرَةِ لِيَسۥـٔوا وُجوهَكُم وَلِيَدخُلُوا المَسجِدَ كَما دَخَلوهُ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَلِيُتَبِّروا ما عَلَوا تَتبيرًا(7)
'If you do good, it is your own souls you do good to, and if you do evil it is to them likewise.' Then, when the promise of the second came to pass, We sent against you Our servants to discountenance you, and to enter the Temple, as they entered it the first time, and to destroy utterly that which they ascended to.(7)
عَسىٰ رَبُّكُم أَن يَرحَمَكُم ۚ وَإِن عُدتُم عُدنا ۘ وَجَعَلنا جَهَنَّمَ لِلكٰفِرينَ حَصيرًا(8)
Perchance your Lord will have mercy upon you; but if you return, We shall return; and We have made Gehenna a prison for the unbelievers.(8)
إِنَّ هٰذَا القُرءانَ يَهدى لِلَّتى هِىَ أَقوَمُ وَيُبَشِّرُ المُؤمِنينَ الَّذينَ يَعمَلونَ الصّٰلِحٰتِ أَنَّ لَهُم أَجرًا كَبيرًا(9)
Surely this Koran guides to the way that is straightest and gives good tidings to the believers who do deeds of righteousness, that theirs shall be a great wage,(9)
وَأَنَّ الَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِالءاخِرَةِ أَعتَدنا لَهُم عَذابًا أَليمًا(10)
and that those who do not believe in the world to come -- we have prepared for them a painful chastisement.(10)
وَيَدعُ الإِنسٰنُ بِالشَّرِّ دُعاءَهُ بِالخَيرِ ۖ وَكانَ الإِنسٰنُ عَجولًا(11)
Man prays for evil, as he prays for good; man is ever hasty.(11)
وَجَعَلنَا الَّيلَ وَالنَّهارَ ءايَتَينِ ۖ فَمَحَونا ءايَةَ الَّيلِ وَجَعَلنا ءايَةَ النَّهارِ مُبصِرَةً لِتَبتَغوا فَضلًا مِن رَبِّكُم وَلِتَعلَموا عَدَدَ السِّنينَ وَالحِسابَ ۚ وَكُلَّ شَيءٍ فَصَّلنٰهُ تَفصيلًا(12)
We have appointed the night and the day as two signs; then We have blotted out the sign of the night, and made the sign of the day to see, and that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and that you may know the number of the years, and the reckoning; and everything We have distinguished very distinctly.(12)
وَكُلَّ إِنسٰنٍ أَلزَمنٰهُ طٰئِرَهُ فى عُنُقِهِ ۖ وَنُخرِجُ لَهُ يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ كِتٰبًا يَلقىٰهُ مَنشورًا(13)
And every man -- We have fastened to him his bird of omen upon his neck; and We shall bring forth for him, on the Day of Resurrection, a book he shall find spread wide open.(13)
اقرَأ كِتٰبَكَ كَفىٰ بِنَفسِكَ اليَومَ عَلَيكَ حَسيبًا(14)
'Read thy book! Thy soul suffices thee this day as a reckoner against thee.'(14)
مَنِ اهتَدىٰ فَإِنَّما يَهتَدى لِنَفسِهِ ۖ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّما يَضِلُّ عَلَيها ۚ وَلا تَزِرُ وازِرَةٌ وِزرَ أُخرىٰ ۗ وَما كُنّا مُعَذِّبينَ حَتّىٰ نَبعَثَ رَسولًا(15)
Whosoever is guided, is only guided to his own gain, and whosoever goes astray, it is only to his own loss; no soul laden bears the load of another. We never chastise, until We send forth a Messenger.(15)
وَإِذا أَرَدنا أَن نُهلِكَ قَريَةً أَمَرنا مُترَفيها فَفَسَقوا فيها فَحَقَّ عَلَيهَا القَولُ فَدَمَّرنٰها تَدميرًا(16)
And when We desire to destroy a city, We command its men who live at ease, and they commit ungodliness therein, then the Word is realized against it, and We destroy it utterly.(16)
وَكَم أَهلَكنا مِنَ القُرونِ مِن بَعدِ نوحٍ ۗ وَكَفىٰ بِرَبِّكَ بِذُنوبِ عِبادِهِ خَبيرًا بَصيرًا(17)
How many generations We have destroyed after Noah! Thy Lord suffices as one who is aware of and sees the sins of His servants.(17)
مَن كانَ يُريدُ العاجِلَةَ عَجَّلنا لَهُ فيها ما نَشاءُ لِمَن نُريدُ ثُمَّ جَعَلنا لَهُ جَهَنَّمَ يَصلىٰها مَذمومًا مَدحورًا(18)
Whosoever desires this hasty world, We hasten for him therein what We will unto whomsoever We desire; then We appoint for him Gehenna wherein he shall roast, condemned and rejected.(18)
وَمَن أَرادَ الءاخِرَةَ وَسَعىٰ لَها سَعيَها وَهُوَ مُؤمِنٌ فَأُولٰئِكَ كانَ سَعيُهُم مَشكورًا(19)
And whosoever desires the world to come and strives after it as he should, being a believer -- those, their striving shall be thanked.(19)
كُلًّا نُمِدُّ هٰؤُلاءِ وَهٰؤُلاءِ مِن عَطاءِ رَبِّكَ ۚ وَما كانَ عَطاءُ رَبِّكَ مَحظورًا(20)
Each We succour, these and those, from thy Lord's gift; and thy Lord's gift is not confined.(20)
انظُر كَيفَ فَضَّلنا بَعضَهُم عَلىٰ بَعضٍ ۚ وَلَلءاخِرَةُ أَكبَرُ دَرَجٰتٍ وَأَكبَرُ تَفضيلًا(21)
Behold, how We prefer some of them over others! And surely the world to come is greater in ranks, greater in preferment.(21)
لا تَجعَل مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلٰهًا ءاخَرَ فَتَقعُدَ مَذمومًا مَخذولًا(22)
Set not up with God another god, or thou wilt sit condemned and forsaken.(22)
۞ وَقَضىٰ رَبُّكَ أَلّا تَعبُدوا إِلّا إِيّاهُ وَبِالوٰلِدَينِ إِحسٰنًا ۚ إِمّا يَبلُغَنَّ عِندَكَ الكِبَرَ أَحَدُهُما أَو كِلاهُما فَلا تَقُل لَهُما أُفٍّ وَلا تَنهَرهُما وَقُل لَهُما قَولًا كَريمًا(23)
Thy Lord has decreed you shall not serve any but Him, and to be good to parents, whether one or both of them attains old age with thee; say not to them 'Fie' neither chide them, but speak unto them words respectful,(23)
وَاخفِض لَهُما جَناحَ الذُّلِّ مِنَ الرَّحمَةِ وَقُل رَبِّ ارحَمهُما كَما رَبَّيانى صَغيرًا(24)
and lower to them the wing of humbleness out of mercy and say; 'My Lord, have mercy upon them, as they raised me up when I was little.'(24)
رَبُّكُم أَعلَمُ بِما فى نُفوسِكُم ۚ إِن تَكونوا صٰلِحينَ فَإِنَّهُ كانَ لِلأَوّٰبينَ غَفورًا(25)
Your Lord knows very well what is in your hearts if you are righteous, for He is All-forgiving to those who are penitent.(25)
وَءاتِ ذَا القُربىٰ حَقَّهُ وَالمِسكينَ وَابنَ السَّبيلِ وَلا تُبَذِّر تَبذيرًا(26)
And give the kinsman his right, and the needy, and the traveller; and never squander;(26)
إِنَّ المُبَذِّرينَ كانوا إِخوٰنَ الشَّيٰطينِ ۖ وَكانَ الشَّيطٰنُ لِرَبِّهِ كَفورًا(27)
the squanderers are brothers of Satan, and Satan is unthankful to his Lord.(27)
وَإِمّا تُعرِضَنَّ عَنهُمُ ابتِغاءَ رَحمَةٍ مِن رَبِّكَ تَرجوها فَقُل لَهُم قَولًا مَيسورًا(28)
But if thou turnest from them, seeking mercy from thy Lord that thou hopest for, then speak unto them gentle words.(28)
وَلا تَجعَل يَدَكَ مَغلولَةً إِلىٰ عُنُقِكَ وَلا تَبسُطها كُلَّ البَسطِ فَتَقعُدَ مَلومًا مَحسورًا(29)
And keep not thy hand chained to thy neck, nor outspread it widespread altogether, or thou wilt sit reproached and denuded.(29)
إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ وَيَقدِرُ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ بِعِبادِهِ خَبيرًا بَصيرًا(30)
Surely thy Lord outspreads and straitens His provision unto whom He will; surely He is aware of and sees His servants.(30)
وَلا تَقتُلوا أَولٰدَكُم خَشيَةَ إِملٰقٍ ۖ نَحنُ نَرزُقُهُم وَإِيّاكُم ۚ إِنَّ قَتلَهُم كانَ خِطـًٔا كَبيرًا(31)
And slay not your children for fear of poverty; We will provide for you and them; surely the slaying of them is a grievous sin.(31)
وَلا تَقرَبُوا الزِّنىٰ ۖ إِنَّهُ كانَ فٰحِشَةً وَساءَ سَبيلًا(32)
And approach not fornication; surely it is an indecency, and evil as a way.(32)
وَلا تَقتُلُوا النَّفسَ الَّتى حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلّا بِالحَقِّ ۗ وَمَن قُتِلَ مَظلومًا فَقَد جَعَلنا لِوَلِيِّهِ سُلطٰنًا فَلا يُسرِف فِى القَتلِ ۖ إِنَّهُ كانَ مَنصورًا(33)
And slay not the soul God has forbidden, except by right. Whosoever is slain unjustly, We have appointed to his next-of-kin authority; but let him not exceed in slaying; he shall be helped.(33)
وَلا تَقرَبوا مالَ اليَتيمِ إِلّا بِالَّتى هِىَ أَحسَنُ حَتّىٰ يَبلُغَ أَشُدَّهُ ۚ وَأَوفوا بِالعَهدِ ۖ إِنَّ العَهدَ كانَ مَسـٔولًا(34)
And do not approach the property of the orphan save in the fairest manner, until he is of age. And fulfil the covenant; surely the covenant shall be questioned of.(34)
وَأَوفُوا الكَيلَ إِذا كِلتُم وَزِنوا بِالقِسطاسِ المُستَقيمِ ۚ ذٰلِكَ خَيرٌ وَأَحسَنُ تَأويلًا(35)
And fill up the measure when you measure, and weigh with the straight balance; that is better and fairer in the issue.(35)
وَلا تَقفُ ما لَيسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلمٌ ۚ إِنَّ السَّمعَ وَالبَصَرَ وَالفُؤادَ كُلُّ أُولٰئِكَ كانَ عَنهُ مَسـٔولًا(36)
And pursue not that thou hast no knowledge of; the hearing, the sight, the heart -- all of those shall be questioned of.(36)
وَلا تَمشِ فِى الأَرضِ مَرَحًا ۖ إِنَّكَ لَن تَخرِقَ الأَرضَ وَلَن تَبلُغَ الجِبالَ طولًا(37)
And walk not in the earth exultantly; certainly thou wilt never tear the earth open, nor attain the mountains in height.(37)
كُلُّ ذٰلِكَ كانَ سَيِّئُهُ عِندَ رَبِّكَ مَكروهًا(38)
All of that -- the wickedness of it is hateful in the sight of thy Lord has revealed to thee:(38)
ذٰلِكَ مِمّا أَوحىٰ إِلَيكَ رَبُّكَ مِنَ الحِكمَةِ ۗ وَلا تَجعَل مَعَ اللَّهِ إِلٰهًا ءاخَرَ فَتُلقىٰ فى جَهَنَّمَ مَلومًا مَدحورًا(39)
That is of the wisdom thy Lord set not up with God another god, or thou wilt be cast into Gehenna, reproached and rejected.(39)
أَفَأَصفىٰكُم رَبُّكُم بِالبَنينَ وَاتَّخَذَ مِنَ المَلٰئِكَةِ إِنٰثًا ۚ إِنَّكُم لَتَقولونَ قَولًا عَظيمًا(40)
What, has your Lord favoured you with sons and taken to Himself from the angels females? Surely it is a monstrous thing you are saying!(40)
وَلَقَد صَرَّفنا فى هٰذَا القُرءانِ لِيَذَّكَّروا وَما يَزيدُهُم إِلّا نُفورًا(41)
We have turned about in this Koran, that they may remember; and it increases them only in aversion.(41)
قُل لَو كانَ مَعَهُ ءالِهَةٌ كَما يَقولونَ إِذًا لَابتَغَوا إِلىٰ ذِى العَرشِ سَبيلًا(42)
Say: 'If there had been other gods with Him, as they say, in that case assuredly they would have sought a way unto the Lord of the Throne.' Glory be to Him!(42)
سُبحٰنَهُ وَتَعٰلىٰ عَمّا يَقولونَ عُلُوًّا كَبيرًا(43)
High indeed be He exalted above that they say!(43)
تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمٰوٰتُ السَّبعُ وَالأَرضُ وَمَن فيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِن مِن شَيءٍ إِلّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمدِهِ وَلٰكِن لا تَفقَهونَ تَسبيحَهُم ۗ إِنَّهُ كانَ حَليمًا غَفورًا(44)
The seven heavens and the earth, and whosoever in them is, extol Him; nothing is, that does not proclaim His praise, but you do not understand their extolling. Surely He is All-clement, All-forgiving.(44)
وَإِذا قَرَأتَ القُرءانَ جَعَلنا بَينَكَ وَبَينَ الَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِالءاخِرَةِ حِجابًا مَستورًا(45)
When thou recitest the Koran, We place between thee, and those who do not believe in the world to come, a curtain obstructing,(45)
وَجَعَلنا عَلىٰ قُلوبِهِم أَكِنَّةً أَن يَفقَهوهُ وَفى ءاذانِهِم وَقرًا ۚ وَإِذا ذَكَرتَ رَبَّكَ فِى القُرءانِ وَحدَهُ وَلَّوا عَلىٰ أَدبٰرِهِم نُفورًا(46)
and We lay veils upon their hearts lest they understand it, and in their ears heaviness. And when thou mentionest thy Lord only in the Koran, they turn in their traces in aversion.(46)
نَحنُ أَعلَمُ بِما يَستَمِعونَ بِهِ إِذ يَستَمِعونَ إِلَيكَ وَإِذ هُم نَجوىٰ إِذ يَقولُ الظّٰلِمونَ إِن تَتَّبِعونَ إِلّا رَجُلًا مَسحورًا(47)
We know very well how they listen when they listen to thee, and when they conspire, when the evildoers say, 'You are only following a man bewitched!'(47)
انظُر كَيفَ ضَرَبوا لَكَ الأَمثالَ فَضَلّوا فَلا يَستَطيعونَ سَبيلًا(48)
Behold, how they strike similitudes for thee, and go astray, and cannot find a way!(48)
وَقالوا أَءِذا كُنّا عِظٰمًا وَرُفٰتًا أَءِنّا لَمَبعوثونَ خَلقًا جَديدًا(49)
They say, 'What, when we are bones and broken bits, shall we really be raised up again in a new creation?'(49)
۞ قُل كونوا حِجارَةً أَو حَديدًا(50)
Say: 'Let you be stones, or iron,(50)
أَو خَلقًا مِمّا يَكبُرُ فى صُدورِكُم ۚ فَسَيَقولونَ مَن يُعيدُنا ۖ قُلِ الَّذى فَطَرَكُم أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ ۚ فَسَيُنغِضونَ إِلَيكَ رُءوسَهُم وَيَقولونَ مَتىٰ هُوَ ۖ قُل عَسىٰ أَن يَكونَ قَريبًا(51)
or some creation yet more monstrous in your minds!' Then they will say, 'Who will bring us back?' Say: 'He who originated you the first time.' Then they will shake their heads at thee, and they will say, 'When will it be?' Say: 'It is possible that it may be nigh,(51)
يَومَ يَدعوكُم فَتَستَجيبونَ بِحَمدِهِ وَتَظُنّونَ إِن لَبِثتُم إِلّا قَليلًا(52)
on the day when He will call you, and you will answer praising Him, and you will think you have but tarried a little.'(52)
وَقُل لِعِبادى يَقولُوا الَّتى هِىَ أَحسَنُ ۚ إِنَّ الشَّيطٰنَ يَنزَغُ بَينَهُم ۚ إِنَّ الشَّيطٰنَ كانَ لِلإِنسٰنِ عَدُوًّا مُبينًا(53)
And say to My servants, that they say words that are kindlier. For surely Satan provokes strife between them, and Satan is ever a manifest foe to man.(53)
رَبُّكُم أَعلَمُ بِكُم ۖ إِن يَشَأ يَرحَمكُم أَو إِن يَشَأ يُعَذِّبكُم ۚ وَما أَرسَلنٰكَ عَلَيهِم وَكيلًا(54)
Your Lord knows you very well; if He will, He will have mercy on you, or, if He will, He will chastise you. We sent thee not to be a guardian over them.(54)
وَرَبُّكَ أَعلَمُ بِمَن فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۗ وَلَقَد فَضَّلنا بَعضَ النَّبِيّۦنَ عَلىٰ بَعضٍ ۖ وَءاتَينا داوۥدَ زَبورًا(55)
And thy Lord knows very well all who are in the heavens and the earth; and We have preferred some Prophets over others; and We gave to David Psalms.(55)
قُلِ ادعُوا الَّذينَ زَعَمتُم مِن دونِهِ فَلا يَملِكونَ كَشفَ الضُّرِّ عَنكُم وَلا تَحويلًا(56)
Say: 'Call on those you asserted apart from Him; they have no power to remove affliction from you, or to transfer it.(56)
أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ يَدعونَ يَبتَغونَ إِلىٰ رَبِّهِمُ الوَسيلَةَ أَيُّهُم أَقرَبُ وَيَرجونَ رَحمَتَهُ وَيَخافونَ عَذابَهُ ۚ إِنَّ عَذابَ رَبِّكَ كانَ مَحذورًا(57)
Those they call upon are themselves seeking the means to come to their Lord, which of them shall be nearer; they hope for His mercy, and fear His chastisement. Surely thy Lord's chastisement is a thing to beware of.(57)
وَإِن مِن قَريَةٍ إِلّا نَحنُ مُهلِكوها قَبلَ يَومِ القِيٰمَةِ أَو مُعَذِّبوها عَذابًا شَديدًا ۚ كانَ ذٰلِكَ فِى الكِتٰبِ مَسطورًا(58)
No city is there, but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or We shall chastise it with a terrible chastisement; that is in the Book inscribed.(58)
وَما مَنَعَنا أَن نُرسِلَ بِالءايٰتِ إِلّا أَن كَذَّبَ بِهَا الأَوَّلونَ ۚ وَءاتَينا ثَمودَ النّاقَةَ مُبصِرَةً فَظَلَموا بِها ۚ وَما نُرسِلُ بِالءايٰتِ إِلّا تَخويفًا(59)
Naught prevented Us from sending the signs but that the ancients cried lies to them; and We brought Thamood the She-camel visible, but they did her wrong. And We do not send the signs, except to frighten.(59)
وَإِذ قُلنا لَكَ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ أَحاطَ بِالنّاسِ ۚ وَما جَعَلنَا الرُّءيَا الَّتى أَرَينٰكَ إِلّا فِتنَةً لِلنّاسِ وَالشَّجَرَةَ المَلعونَةَ فِى القُرءانِ ۚ وَنُخَوِّفُهُم فَما يَزيدُهُم إِلّا طُغيٰنًا كَبيرًا(60)
And when We said to thee, 'Surely thy Lord encompasses men,' and We made the vision that We showed thee and the tree cursed in the Koran to be only a trial for men; and We frighten them, but it only increases them in great insolence.(60)
وَإِذ قُلنا لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ اسجُدوا لِءادَمَ فَسَجَدوا إِلّا إِبليسَ قالَ ءَأَسجُدُ لِمَن خَلَقتَ طينًا(61)
And when We said to the angels, 'Bow yourselves to Adam'; so they bowed themselves, save Iblis; he said,, 'Shall I bow myself unto one Thou hast created of clay?'(61)
قالَ أَرَءَيتَكَ هٰذَا الَّذى كَرَّمتَ عَلَىَّ لَئِن أَخَّرتَنِ إِلىٰ يَومِ القِيٰمَةِ لَأَحتَنِكَنَّ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ إِلّا قَليلًا(62)
He said, 'What thinkest Thou? This whom Thou hast honoured above me -- if Thou deferrest me to the Day of Resurrection I shall assuredly master his seed, save a few.'(62)
قالَ اذهَب فَمَن تَبِعَكَ مِنهُم فَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ جَزاؤُكُم جَزاءً مَوفورًا(63)
Said He, 'Depart! Those of them that follow thee -- surely Gehenna shall be your recompense, an ample recompense!(63)
وَاستَفزِز مَنِ استَطَعتَ مِنهُم بِصَوتِكَ وَأَجلِب عَلَيهِم بِخَيلِكَ وَرَجِلِكَ وَشارِكهُم فِى الأَموٰلِ وَالأَولٰدِ وَعِدهُم ۚ وَما يَعِدُهُمُ الشَّيطٰنُ إِلّا غُرورًا(64)
And startle whomsoever of them thou canst with thy voice; and rally against them thy horsemen and thy foot, and share with them in their wealth and their children, and promise them!' But Satan promises them naught, except delusion.(64)
إِنَّ عِبادى لَيسَ لَكَ عَلَيهِم سُلطٰنٌ ۚ وَكَفىٰ بِرَبِّكَ وَكيلًا(65)
'Surely over My servants thou shalt have no authority.' Thy Lord suffices as a guardian.(65)
رَبُّكُمُ الَّذى يُزجى لَكُمُ الفُلكَ فِى البَحرِ لِتَبتَغوا مِن فَضلِهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ بِكُم رَحيمًا(66)
Your Lord it is who drives for you the ships on the sea that you may seek His bounty; surely He is All-compassionate towards you.(66)
وَإِذا مَسَّكُمُ الضُّرُّ فِى البَحرِ ضَلَّ مَن تَدعونَ إِلّا إِيّاهُ ۖ فَلَمّا نَجّىٰكُم إِلَى البَرِّ أَعرَضتُم ۚ وَكانَ الإِنسٰنُ كَفورًا(67)
And when affliction visits you upon the sea, then there go astray those on whom you call except Him; and when He delivers you to land, you turn away; man is ever unthankful.(67)
أَفَأَمِنتُم أَن يَخسِفَ بِكُم جانِبَ البَرِّ أَو يُرسِلَ عَلَيكُم حاصِبًا ثُمَّ لا تَجِدوا لَكُم وَكيلًا(68)
Do you feel secure that He will not cause the shore to swallow you up, or loose against you a squall of pebbles, then you will find no guardian for you?(68)
أَم أَمِنتُم أَن يُعيدَكُم فيهِ تارَةً أُخرىٰ فَيُرسِلَ عَلَيكُم قاصِفًا مِنَ الرّيحِ فَيُغرِقَكُم بِما كَفَرتُم ۙ ثُمَّ لا تَجِدوا لَكُم عَلَينا بِهِ تَبيعًا(69)
Or do you feel secure that He will not send you back into it a second time, and loose against you a hurricane of wind and drown you for your thanklessness, then you will find no prosecutor for you against Us?(69)
۞ وَلَقَد كَرَّمنا بَنى ءادَمَ وَحَمَلنٰهُم فِى البَرِّ وَالبَحرِ وَرَزَقنٰهُم مِنَ الطَّيِّبٰتِ وَفَضَّلنٰهُم عَلىٰ كَثيرٍ مِمَّن خَلَقنا تَفضيلًا(70)
We have honoured the Children of Adam and carried them on land and sea, and provided them with good things, and preferred them greatly over many of those We created.(70)
يَومَ نَدعوا كُلَّ أُناسٍ بِإِمٰمِهِم ۖ فَمَن أوتِىَ كِتٰبَهُ بِيَمينِهِ فَأُولٰئِكَ يَقرَءونَ كِتٰبَهُم وَلا يُظلَمونَ فَتيلًا(71)
On the day when We shall call all men with their record, and whoso is given his book in his right hand -- those shall read their book, and they shall not be wronged a single date-thread.(71)
وَمَن كانَ فى هٰذِهِ أَعمىٰ فَهُوَ فِى الءاخِرَةِ أَعمىٰ وَأَضَلُّ سَبيلًا(72)
And whosoever is blind in this world shall be blind in the world to come, and he shall be even further astray from the way.(72)
وَإِن كادوا لَيَفتِنونَكَ عَنِ الَّذى أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ لِتَفتَرِىَ عَلَينا غَيرَهُ ۖ وَإِذًا لَاتَّخَذوكَ خَليلًا(73)
Indeed they were near to seducing thee from that We revealed to thee, that thou mightest forge against Us another, and then they would surely have taken thee as a friend;(73)
وَلَولا أَن ثَبَّتنٰكَ لَقَد كِدتَ تَركَنُ إِلَيهِم شَيـًٔا قَليلًا(74)
and had We not confirmed thee, surely thou wert near to inclining unto them a very little;(74)
إِذًا لَأَذَقنٰكَ ضِعفَ الحَيوٰةِ وَضِعفَ المَماتِ ثُمَّ لا تَجِدُ لَكَ عَلَينا نَصيرًا(75)
then would We have let thee taste the double of life and the double of death; and then thou wouldst have found none to help thee against Us.(75)
وَإِن كادوا لَيَستَفِزّونَكَ مِنَ الأَرضِ لِيُخرِجوكَ مِنها ۖ وَإِذًا لا يَلبَثونَ خِلٰفَكَ إِلّا قَليلًا(76)
Indeed they were near to startling thee from the land, to expel thee from it, and then they would have tarried after thee only a little --(76)
سُنَّةَ مَن قَد أَرسَلنا قَبلَكَ مِن رُسُلِنا ۖ وَلا تَجِدُ لِسُنَّتِنا تَحويلًا(77)
the wont of those We sent before thee of Our Messengers; thou wilt find no change to Our wont.(77)
أَقِمِ الصَّلوٰةَ لِدُلوكِ الشَّمسِ إِلىٰ غَسَقِ الَّيلِ وَقُرءانَ الفَجرِ ۖ إِنَّ قُرءانَ الفَجرِ كانَ مَشهودًا(78)
Perform the prayer at the sinking of the sun to the darkening of the night and the recital of dawn; surely the recital of dawn is witnessed.(78)
وَمِنَ الَّيلِ فَتَهَجَّد بِهِ نافِلَةً لَكَ عَسىٰ أَن يَبعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقامًا مَحمودًا(79)
And as for the night, keep vigil a part of it, as a work of supererogation for thee; it may be that thy Lord will raise thee up to a laudable station.(79)
وَقُل رَبِّ أَدخِلنى مُدخَلَ صِدقٍ وَأَخرِجنى مُخرَجَ صِدقٍ وَاجعَل لى مِن لَدُنكَ سُلطٰنًا نَصيرًا(80)
And say: 'My Lord, lead me in with a just ingoing, and lead me out with a just outgoing; grant me authority from Thee, to help me.'(80)
وَقُل جاءَ الحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ البٰطِلُ ۚ إِنَّ البٰطِلَ كانَ زَهوقًا(81)
And say: 'The truth has come, and falsehood has vanished away; surely falsehood is ever certain to vanish.'(81)
وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ القُرءانِ ما هُوَ شِفاءٌ وَرَحمَةٌ لِلمُؤمِنينَ ۙ وَلا يَزيدُ الظّٰلِمينَ إِلّا خَسارًا(82)
And We send down, of the Koran, that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers; and the unbelievers it increases not, except in loss.(82)
وَإِذا أَنعَمنا عَلَى الإِنسٰنِ أَعرَضَ وَنَـٔا بِجانِبِهِ ۖ وَإِذا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ كانَ يَـٔوسًا(83)
And when We bless man, he turns away, and withdraws aside; but when evil visits him, he is in despair.(83)
قُل كُلٌّ يَعمَلُ عَلىٰ شاكِلَتِهِ فَرَبُّكُم أَعلَمُ بِمَن هُوَ أَهدىٰ سَبيلًا(84)
Say: 'Every man works according to his own manner; but your Lord knows very well what man is best guided as to the way.'(84)
وَيَسـَٔلونَكَ عَنِ الرّوحِ ۖ قُلِ الرّوحُ مِن أَمرِ رَبّى وَما أوتيتُم مِنَ العِلمِ إِلّا قَليلًا(85)
They will question thee concerning the Spirit. Say: 'The Spirit is of the bidding of my Lord. You have been given of knowledge nothing except a little.'(85)
وَلَئِن شِئنا لَنَذهَبَنَّ بِالَّذى أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ ثُمَّ لا تَجِدُ لَكَ بِهِ عَلَينا وَكيلًا(86)
If We willed, We could take away that We have revealed to thee, then thou wouldst find none thereover to guard thee against Us,(86)
إِلّا رَحمَةً مِن رَبِّكَ ۚ إِنَّ فَضلَهُ كانَ عَلَيكَ كَبيرًا(87)
excepting by some mercy of thy Lord; surly His favour to thee is great.(87)
قُل لَئِنِ اجتَمَعَتِ الإِنسُ وَالجِنُّ عَلىٰ أَن يَأتوا بِمِثلِ هٰذَا القُرءانِ لا يَأتونَ بِمِثلِهِ وَلَو كانَ بَعضُهُم لِبَعضٍ ظَهيرًا(88)
Say: 'If men and jinn banded together to produce the like of this Koran, they would never produce its like, not though they backed one another.'(88)
وَلَقَد صَرَّفنا لِلنّاسِ فى هٰذَا القُرءانِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍ فَأَبىٰ أَكثَرُ النّاسِ إِلّا كُفورًا(89)
We have indeed turned about for men in this Koran every manner of similitude; yet most men refuse all but unbelief.(89)
وَقالوا لَن نُؤمِنَ لَكَ حَتّىٰ تَفجُرَ لَنا مِنَ الأَرضِ يَنبوعًا(90)
They say, 'We will not believe thee till thou makest a spring to gush forth from the earth for us,(90)
أَو تَكونَ لَكَ جَنَّةٌ مِن نَخيلٍ وَعِنَبٍ فَتُفَجِّرَ الأَنهٰرَ خِلٰلَها تَفجيرًا(91)
or till thou possessest a garden of plants and vines, and thou makest rivers to gush forth abundantly all amongst it,(91)
أَو تُسقِطَ السَّماءَ كَما زَعَمتَ عَلَينا كِسَفًا أَو تَأتِىَ بِاللَّهِ وَالمَلٰئِكَةِ قَبيلًا(92)
or till thou makest heaven to fall, as thou assertest, on us in fragments, or thou bringest God and the angels as a surety,(92)
أَو يَكونَ لَكَ بَيتٌ مِن زُخرُفٍ أَو تَرقىٰ فِى السَّماءِ وَلَن نُؤمِنَ لِرُقِيِّكَ حَتّىٰ تُنَزِّلَ عَلَينا كِتٰبًا نَقرَؤُهُ ۗ قُل سُبحانَ رَبّى هَل كُنتُ إِلّا بَشَرًا رَسولًا(93)
or till thou possessest a house of gold ornament, or till thou goest up into heaven; and we will not believe thy going up till thou bringest down on us a book that we may read. Say: 'Glory be to my Lord. Am I aught but a mortal, a Messenger?'(93)
وَما مَنَعَ النّاسَ أَن يُؤمِنوا إِذ جاءَهُمُ الهُدىٰ إِلّا أَن قالوا أَبَعَثَ اللَّهُ بَشَرًا رَسولًا(94)
And naught prevented men from believing when the guidance came to them, but that they said, 'Has God sent forth a mortal as Messenger?'(94)
قُل لَو كانَ فِى الأَرضِ مَلٰئِكَةٌ يَمشونَ مُطمَئِنّينَ لَنَزَّلنا عَلَيهِم مِنَ السَّماءِ مَلَكًا رَسولًا(95)
Say: 'Had there been in the earth angels walking. at peace, We would have sent down upon them out of heaven an angel as Messenger.'(95)
قُل كَفىٰ بِاللَّهِ شَهيدًا بَينى وَبَينَكُم ۚ إِنَّهُ كانَ بِعِبادِهِ خَبيرًا بَصيرًا(96)
Say: 'God suffices as a witness between me and you; surely He is aware of and sees His servants.'(96)
وَمَن يَهدِ اللَّهُ فَهُوَ المُهتَدِ ۖ وَمَن يُضلِل فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُم أَولِياءَ مِن دونِهِ ۖ وَنَحشُرُهُم يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ عَلىٰ وُجوهِهِم عُميًا وَبُكمًا وَصُمًّا ۖ مَأوىٰهُم جَهَنَّمُ ۖ كُلَّما خَبَت زِدنٰهُم سَعيرًا(97)
Whomsoever God guides, he is rightly guided; and whom He leads astray -- thou wilt not find for them protectors, apart from Him. And We shall muster them on the Resurrection Day upon their faces, blind, dumb, deaf; their refuge shall be Gehenna, and whensoever it abates We shall increase for them the Blaze.(97)
ذٰلِكَ جَزاؤُهُم بِأَنَّهُم كَفَروا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَقالوا أَءِذا كُنّا عِظٰمًا وَرُفٰتًا أَءِنّا لَمَبعوثونَ خَلقًا جَديدًا(98)
That is their recompense because they disbelieved in Our signs and said, 'What, when we are bones and broken bits, shall we really be raised up again in a new creation?'(98)
۞ أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذى خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ قادِرٌ عَلىٰ أَن يَخلُقَ مِثلَهُم وَجَعَلَ لَهُم أَجَلًا لا رَيبَ فيهِ فَأَبَى الظّٰلِمونَ إِلّا كُفورًا(99)
Have they not seen that God, who created the heavens and earth, is powerful to create the like of them? He has appointed for them a term, no doubt of it; yet the unbelievers refuse all but unbelief.(99)
قُل لَو أَنتُم تَملِكونَ خَزائِنَ رَحمَةِ رَبّى إِذًا لَأَمسَكتُم خَشيَةَ الإِنفاقِ ۚ وَكانَ الإِنسٰنُ قَتورًا(100)
Say: 'If you possessed the treasuries of my Lord's mercy, yet would you hold back for fear of expending; and man is ever niggardly.'(100)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا موسىٰ تِسعَ ءايٰتٍ بَيِّنٰتٍ ۖ فَسـَٔل بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ إِذ جاءَهُم فَقالَ لَهُ فِرعَونُ إِنّى لَأَظُنُّكَ يٰموسىٰ مَسحورًا(101)
And We gave Moses nine signs, clear signs. Ask the Children of Israel when he came to them, and Pharaoh said to him, 'Moses, I think thou art bewitched.'(101)
قالَ لَقَد عَلِمتَ ما أَنزَلَ هٰؤُلاءِ إِلّا رَبُّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ بَصائِرَ وَإِنّى لَأَظُنُّكَ يٰفِرعَونُ مَثبورًا(102)
He said, 'Indeed thou knowest that none sent these down, except the Lord of the heavens and earth, as clear proofs; and, Pharaoh, I think thou art accursed.'(102)
فَأَرادَ أَن يَستَفِزَّهُم مِنَ الأَرضِ فَأَغرَقنٰهُ وَمَن مَعَهُ جَميعًا(103)
He desired to startle them from the land; and We drowned him and those with him, all together.(103)
وَقُلنا مِن بَعدِهِ لِبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ اسكُنُوا الأَرضَ فَإِذا جاءَ وَعدُ الءاخِرَةِ جِئنا بِكُم لَفيفًا(104)
And We said to the Children of Israel after him, 'Dwell in the land; and when the promise of the world to come comes to pass, We shall bring you a rabble.'(104)
وَبِالحَقِّ أَنزَلنٰهُ وَبِالحَقِّ نَزَلَ ۗ وَما أَرسَلنٰكَ إِلّا مُبَشِّرًا وَنَذيرًا(105)
With the truth We have sent it down, and with the truth it has come down; and We have sent thee not, except good tidings to bear, and warning;(105)
وَقُرءانًا فَرَقنٰهُ لِتَقرَأَهُ عَلَى النّاسِ عَلىٰ مُكثٍ وَنَزَّلنٰهُ تَنزيلًا(106)
and a Koran We have divided, for thee to recite it to mankind at intervals, and We have sent it down successively.(106)
قُل ءامِنوا بِهِ أَو لا تُؤمِنوا ۚ إِنَّ الَّذينَ أوتُوا العِلمَ مِن قَبلِهِ إِذا يُتلىٰ عَلَيهِم يَخِرّونَ لِلأَذقانِ سُجَّدًا(107)
Say: 'Believe in it, or believe not; those who were given the knowledge before it when it is recited to them, fall down upon their faces prostrating,(107)
وَيَقولونَ سُبحٰنَ رَبِّنا إِن كانَ وَعدُ رَبِّنا لَمَفعولًا(108)
and say, "Glory be to our Lord! Our Lord's promise is performed."(108)
وَيَخِرّونَ لِلأَذقانِ يَبكونَ وَيَزيدُهُم خُشوعًا ۩(109)
And they fall down upon their faces weeping; and it increases them in humility.'(109)
قُلِ ادعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادعُوا الرَّحمٰنَ ۖ أَيًّا ما تَدعوا فَلَهُ الأَسماءُ الحُسنىٰ ۚ وَلا تَجهَر بِصَلاتِكَ وَلا تُخافِت بِها وَابتَغِ بَينَ ذٰلِكَ سَبيلًا(110)
Say: 'Call upon God, or call upon the Merciful; whichsoever you call upon, to Him belong the Names Most Beautiful.' And be thou not loud in thy prayer, nor hushed therein, but seek thou for a way between that.(110)
وَقُلِ الحَمدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذى لَم يَتَّخِذ وَلَدًا وَلَم يَكُن لَهُ شَريكٌ فِى المُلكِ وَلَم يَكُن لَهُ وَلِىٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ ۖ وَكَبِّرهُ تَكبيرًا(111)
And say: 'Praise belongs to God, who has not taken to Him a son, and who has not any associate in the Kingdom, nor any protector out of humbleness.' And magnify Him with repeated magnificats.(111)
