بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
Ha Mim(1)
تَنزيلٌ مِنَ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ(2)
A sending down from the Merciful, the Compassionate.(2)
كِتٰبٌ فُصِّلَت ءايٰتُهُ قُرءانًا عَرَبِيًّا لِقَومٍ يَعلَمونَ(3)
A Book whose signs have been distinguished as an Arabic Koran for a people having knowledge,(3)
بَشيرًا وَنَذيرًا فَأَعرَضَ أَكثَرُهُم فَهُم لا يَسمَعونَ(4)
good tidings to bear, and warning, but most of them have turned away, and do not give ear.(4)
وَقالوا قُلوبُنا فى أَكِنَّةٍ مِمّا تَدعونا إِلَيهِ وَفى ءاذانِنا وَقرٌ وَمِن بَينِنا وَبَينِكَ حِجابٌ فَاعمَل إِنَّنا عٰمِلونَ(5)
They say, 'Our hearts are veiled from what thou callest us to, and in our ears is a heaviness, and between us and thee there is a veil; so act; we are acting!'(5)
قُل إِنَّما أَنا۠ بَشَرٌ مِثلُكُم يوحىٰ إِلَىَّ أَنَّما إِلٰهُكُم إِلٰهٌ وٰحِدٌ فَاستَقيموا إِلَيهِ وَاستَغفِروهُ ۗ وَوَيلٌ لِلمُشرِكينَ(6)
Say: 'I am only a mortal, like you are. To me it has been revealed that your God is One God; so go straight with Him, and ask for His forgiveness; and woe to the idolaters(6)
الَّذينَ لا يُؤتونَ الزَّكوٰةَ وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ هُم كٰفِرونَ(7)
who pay not the alms, and disbelieve in the world to come.(7)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لَهُم أَجرٌ غَيرُ مَمنونٍ(8)
Surely those who believe, and do righteous deeds shall have a wage unfailing.'(8)
۞ قُل أَئِنَّكُم لَتَكفُرونَ بِالَّذى خَلَقَ الأَرضَ فى يَومَينِ وَتَجعَلونَ لَهُ أَندادًا ۚ ذٰلِكَ رَبُّ العٰلَمينَ(9)
Say: 'What, do you disbelieve in Him who created the earth in two days, and do you set up compeers to Him? That is the Lord of all Being.(9)
وَجَعَلَ فيها رَوٰسِىَ مِن فَوقِها وَبٰرَكَ فيها وَقَدَّرَ فيها أَقوٰتَها فى أَربَعَةِ أَيّامٍ سَواءً لِلسّائِلينَ(10)
'And He set therein firm mountains over it, and He blessed it, and He ordained therein its diverse sustenance in four days, equal to those who ask.'(10)
ثُمَّ استَوىٰ إِلَى السَّماءِ وَهِىَ دُخانٌ فَقالَ لَها وَلِلأَرضِ ائتِيا طَوعًا أَو كَرهًا قالَتا أَتَينا طائِعينَ(11)
Then He lifted Himself to heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth, "Come willingly, or unwillingly!" They said, "We come willingly."(11)
فَقَضىٰهُنَّ سَبعَ سَمٰواتٍ فى يَومَينِ وَأَوحىٰ فى كُلِّ سَماءٍ أَمرَها ۚ وَزَيَّنَّا السَّماءَ الدُّنيا بِمَصٰبيحَ وَحِفظًا ۚ ذٰلِكَ تَقديرُ العَزيزِ العَليمِ(12)
So He determined them as seven heavens in two days, and revealed its commandment in every heaven.'(12)
فَإِن أَعرَضوا فَقُل أَنذَرتُكُم صٰعِقَةً مِثلَ صٰعِقَةِ عادٍ وَثَمودَ(13)
And We adorned the lower heaven with lamps, and to reserve; that is the ordaining of the All-mighty, the All-knowing. But if they turn away, then say, 'I warn you of a thunderbolt like to the thunderbolt of Ad and Thamood.'(13)
إِذ جاءَتهُمُ الرُّسُلُ مِن بَينِ أَيديهِم وَمِن خَلفِهِم أَلّا تَعبُدوا إِلَّا اللَّهَ ۖ قالوا لَو شاءَ رَبُّنا لَأَنزَلَ مَلٰئِكَةً فَإِنّا بِما أُرسِلتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(14)
When the Messengers came unto them from before them and from behind them, saying, 'Serve none but God,' they said, 'Had our Lord willed, surely He would have sent down angels; so we disbelieve in the Message you were sent with.'(14)
فَأَمّا عادٌ فَاستَكبَروا فِى الأَرضِ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ وَقالوا مَن أَشَدُّ مِنّا قُوَّةً ۖ أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذى خَلَقَهُم هُوَ أَشَدُّ مِنهُم قُوَّةً ۖ وَكانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَجحَدونَ(15)
As for Ad, they waxed proud in the earth without right, and they said, 'Who is stronger than we in might?' What, did they not see that God, who created them, was stronger than they in might? And they denied Our signs.(15)
فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم ريحًا صَرصَرًا فى أَيّامٍ نَحِساتٍ لِنُذيقَهُم عَذابَ الخِزىِ فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۖ وَلَعَذابُ الءاخِرَةِ أَخزىٰ ۖ وَهُم لا يُنصَرونَ(16)
Then We loosed against them a wind clamorous in days of ill fortune, that We might let them taste the chastisement of degradation in the present life; and the chastisement of the world to come is even more degrading, and they shall not be helped.(16)
وَأَمّا ثَمودُ فَهَدَينٰهُم فَاستَحَبُّوا العَمىٰ عَلَى الهُدىٰ فَأَخَذَتهُم صٰعِقَةُ العَذابِ الهونِ بِما كانوا يَكسِبونَ(17)
As for Thamood, We guided them, but they preferred blindness above guidance, so the thunderbolt of the chastisement of humiliation seized them for that they were earning.(17)
وَنَجَّينَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَكانوا يَتَّقونَ(18)
And We delivered those who believed and were godfearing.(18)
وَيَومَ يُحشَرُ أَعداءُ اللَّهِ إِلَى النّارِ فَهُم يوزَعونَ(19)
Upon the day when God's enemies are mustered to the Fire, duly disposed,(19)
حَتّىٰ إِذا ما جاءوها شَهِدَ عَلَيهِم سَمعُهُم وَأَبصٰرُهُم وَجُلودُهُم بِما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(20)
till when they are come to it, their hearing, their eyes and their skins bear witness against them concerning what they have been doing,(20)
وَقالوا لِجُلودِهِم لِمَ شَهِدتُم عَلَينا ۖ قالوا أَنطَقَنَا اللَّهُ الَّذى أَنطَقَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ وَهُوَ خَلَقَكُم أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَإِلَيهِ تُرجَعونَ(21)
and they will say to their skins, 'Why bore you witness against us?' They shall say, 'God gave us speech, as He gave everything speech. He created you the first time, and unto Him you shall be returned.(21)
وَما كُنتُم تَستَتِرونَ أَن يَشهَدَ عَلَيكُم سَمعُكُم وَلا أَبصٰرُكُم وَلا جُلودُكُم وَلٰكِن ظَنَنتُم أَنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَعلَمُ كَثيرًا مِمّا تَعمَلونَ(22)
Not so did you cover yourselves, that your hearing, your eyes and your skins should not bear witness against you; but you thought that God would never know much of the things that you were working.(22)
وَذٰلِكُم ظَنُّكُمُ الَّذى ظَنَنتُم بِرَبِّكُم أَردىٰكُم فَأَصبَحتُم مِنَ الخٰسِرينَ(23)
That then, the thought you thought about your Lord, has destroyed you, and therefore you find yourselves this morning among the losers.'(23)
فَإِن يَصبِروا فَالنّارُ مَثوًى لَهُم ۖ وَإِن يَستَعتِبوا فَما هُم مِنَ المُعتَبينَ(24)
Then if they persist, the Fire shall be a lodging for them; and if they ask amends yet no amends shall be made to them.(24)
۞ وَقَيَّضنا لَهُم قُرَناءَ فَزَيَّنوا لَهُم ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم وَحَقَّ عَلَيهِمُ القَولُ فى أُمَمٍ قَد خَلَت مِن قَبلِهِم مِنَ الجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ ۖ إِنَّهُم كانوا خٰسِرينَ(25)
We have allotted them comrades, and they have decked out fair to them that which is before them and behind them. So against them has been realized the Word concerning nations that passed away before them, men and jinn alike; surely they were losers.(25)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لا تَسمَعوا لِهٰذَا القُرءانِ وَالغَوا فيهِ لَعَلَّكُم تَغلِبونَ(26)
The unbelievers say, 'Do not give ear to this Koran, and talk idly about it; haply you will overcome.(26)
فَلَنُذيقَنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا عَذابًا شَديدًا وَلَنَجزِيَنَّهُم أَسوَأَ الَّذى كانوا يَعمَلونَ(27)
So We shall let the unbelievers taste a terrible chastisement, and shall recompense them with the worst of what they were working.(27)
ذٰلِكَ جَزاءُ أَعداءِ اللَّهِ النّارُ ۖ لَهُم فيها دارُ الخُلدِ ۖ جَزاءً بِما كانوا بِـٔايٰتِنا يَجحَدونَ(28)
That is the recompense of God's enemies -- the Fire, wherein they shall have the Abode of Eternity as a recompense, for that they denied Our signs.(28)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا رَبَّنا أَرِنَا الَّذَينِ أَضَلّانا مِنَ الجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ نَجعَلهُما تَحتَ أَقدامِنا لِيَكونا مِنَ الأَسفَلينَ(29)
And the unbelievers shall say, 'Our Lord, show us those that led us astray, both jinn and men, and we shall set them underneath our feet, that they may be among the lower ones.(29)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ قالوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ استَقٰموا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيهِمُ المَلٰئِكَةُ أَلّا تَخافوا وَلا تَحزَنوا وَأَبشِروا بِالجَنَّةِ الَّتى كُنتُم توعَدونَ(30)
Those who have said, 'Our Lord is God.' then have gone straight, upon them the angels descend, saying, 'Fear not, neither sorrow; rejoice in Paradise that you were promised.(30)
نَحنُ أَولِياؤُكُم فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا وَفِى الءاخِرَةِ ۖ وَلَكُم فيها ما تَشتَهى أَنفُسُكُم وَلَكُم فيها ما تَدَّعونَ(31)
We are your friends in the present life and in the world to come; therein you shall have all that your souls desire, all that you call for,(31)
نُزُلًا مِن غَفورٍ رَحيمٍ(32)
as hospitality from One All-forgiving, One All-compassionate.'(32)
وَمَن أَحسَنُ قَولًا مِمَّن دَعا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صٰلِحًا وَقالَ إِنَّنى مِنَ المُسلِمينَ(33)
And who speaks fairer than he who calls unto God and does righteousness and says, 'Surely I am of them that surrender'?(33)
وَلا تَستَوِى الحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّئَةُ ۚ ادفَع بِالَّتى هِىَ أَحسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذى بَينَكَ وَبَينَهُ عَدٰوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِىٌّ حَميمٌ(34)
Not equal are the good deed and the evil deed. Repel with that which is fairer and behold, he between whom and thee there is enmity shall be as if he were a loyal friend.(34)
وَما يُلَقّىٰها إِلَّا الَّذينَ صَبَروا وَما يُلَقّىٰها إِلّا ذو حَظٍّ عَظيمٍ(35)
Yet none shall receive it, except the steadfast; none shall receive it, except a man of mighty fortune.(35)
وَإِمّا يَنزَغَنَّكَ مِنَ الشَّيطٰنِ نَزغٌ فَاستَعِذ بِاللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ العَليمُ(36)
If a provocation from Satan should provoke thee, seek refuge in God; He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing.(36)
وَمِن ءايٰتِهِ الَّيلُ وَالنَّهارُ وَالشَّمسُ وَالقَمَرُ ۚ لا تَسجُدوا لِلشَّمسِ وَلا لِلقَمَرِ وَاسجُدوا لِلَّهِ الَّذى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن كُنتُم إِيّاهُ تَعبُدونَ(37)
And of His signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon. Bow not yourselves to the sun and moon, but bow yourselves to God who created them, if Him you serve.(37)
فَإِنِ استَكبَروا فَالَّذينَ عِندَ رَبِّكَ يُسَبِّحونَ لَهُ بِالَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ وَهُم لا يَسـَٔمونَ ۩(38)
And if they wax proud, yet those who are with thy Lord do glorify Him by night and day, and grow not weary.(38)
وَمِن ءايٰتِهِ أَنَّكَ تَرَى الأَرضَ خٰشِعَةً فَإِذا أَنزَلنا عَلَيهَا الماءَ اهتَزَّت وَرَبَت ۚ إِنَّ الَّذى أَحياها لَمُحىِ المَوتىٰ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ(39)
And of His signs is that thou seest the earth humble; then, when We send down water upon it, it quivers, and swells. Surely He who quickens it is He who quickens the dead; surely He is powerful over everything.(39)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ يُلحِدونَ فى ءايٰتِنا لا يَخفَونَ عَلَينا ۗ أَفَمَن يُلقىٰ فِى النّارِ خَيرٌ أَم مَن يَأتى ءامِنًا يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ ۚ اعمَلوا ما شِئتُم ۖ إِنَّهُ بِما تَعمَلونَ بَصيرٌ(40)
Those who blaspheme Our signs are not hidden from Us. What, is he who shall be cast into the Fire better, or he who comes on the Day of Resurrection in security? Do what you will; surely He sees the things you do.(40)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا بِالذِّكرِ لَمّا جاءَهُم ۖ وَإِنَّهُ لَكِتٰبٌ عَزيزٌ(41)
Those who disbelieve in the Remembrance when it comes to them -- and surely it is a Book Sublime;(41)
لا يَأتيهِ البٰطِلُ مِن بَينِ يَدَيهِ وَلا مِن خَلفِهِ ۖ تَنزيلٌ مِن حَكيمٍ حَميدٍ(42)
falsehood comes not to it from before it nor from behind it; a sending down from One All-wise, All-laudable.(42)
ما يُقالُ لَكَ إِلّا ما قَد قيلَ لِلرُّسُلِ مِن قَبلِكَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذو مَغفِرَةٍ وَذو عِقابٍ أَليمٍ(43)
Naught is said to thee but what already was said to the Messengers before thee. Surely thy Lord is a Lord of forgiveness and of painful retribution.(43)
وَلَو جَعَلنٰهُ قُرءانًا أَعجَمِيًّا لَقالوا لَولا فُصِّلَت ءايٰتُهُ ۖ ءَأَعجَمِىٌّ وَعَرَبِىٌّ ۗ قُل هُوَ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا هُدًى وَشِفاءٌ ۖ وَالَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ فى ءاذانِهِم وَقرٌ وَهُوَ عَلَيهِم عَمًى ۚ أُولٰئِكَ يُنادَونَ مِن مَكانٍ بَعيدٍ(44)
If We had made it a barbarous Koran, they would have said, 'Why are its signs not distinguished? What, barbarous and Arabic?' Say: 'To the believers it is a guidance, and a healing; but those who believe not, in their ears is a heaviness, and to them it is a blindness; those -- they are called from a far place.'(44)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا موسَى الكِتٰبَ فَاختُلِفَ فيهِ ۗ وَلَولا كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَت مِن رَبِّكَ لَقُضِىَ بَينَهُم ۚ وَإِنَّهُم لَفى شَكٍّ مِنهُ مُريبٍ(45)
And We gave Moses the Book; and there was difference concerning it, and but for a Word that preceded from thy Lord, it had been decided between them; and they are in doubt of it disquieting.(45)
مَن عَمِلَ صٰلِحًا فَلِنَفسِهِ ۖ وَمَن أَساءَ فَعَلَيها ۗ وَما رَبُّكَ بِظَلّٰمٍ لِلعَبيدِ(46)
Whoso does righteousness, it is to his own gain, and whoso does evil, it is to his own loss. Thy Lord wrongs not His servants.(46)
۞ إِلَيهِ يُرَدُّ عِلمُ السّاعَةِ ۚ وَما تَخرُجُ مِن ثَمَرٰتٍ مِن أَكمامِها وَما تَحمِلُ مِن أُنثىٰ وَلا تَضَعُ إِلّا بِعِلمِهِ ۚ وَيَومَ يُناديهِم أَينَ شُرَكاءى قالوا ءاذَنّٰكَ ما مِنّا مِن شَهيدٍ(47)
To Him is referred the knowledge of the Hour. Not a fruit comes forth from its sheath, no female bears or brings forth, save with His knowledge. Upon the day when He shall call to them, 'Where now are My associates?' they shall say, 'We proclaim to Thee, there is not a witness among us.(47)
وَضَلَّ عَنهُم ما كانوا يَدعونَ مِن قَبلُ ۖ وَظَنّوا ما لَهُم مِن مَحيصٍ(48)
Then that they called upon before will go astray from them and they will think that they have no asylum.(48)
لا يَسـَٔمُ الإِنسٰنُ مِن دُعاءِ الخَيرِ وَإِن مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَيَـٔوسٌ قَنوطٌ(49)
Man wearies not of praying for good; but when evil visits him, then he is cast down and desperate.(49)
وَلَئِن أَذَقنٰهُ رَحمَةً مِنّا مِن بَعدِ ضَرّاءَ مَسَّتهُ لَيَقولَنَّ هٰذا لى وَما أَظُنُّ السّاعَةَ قائِمَةً وَلَئِن رُجِعتُ إِلىٰ رَبّى إِنَّ لى عِندَهُ لَلحُسنىٰ ۚ فَلَنُنَبِّئَنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا بِما عَمِلوا وَلَنُذيقَنَّهُم مِن عَذابٍ غَليظٍ(50)
And if We let him taste mercy from Us after hardship that has visited him, he surely says, 'This is mine; I think not the Hour is coming. If I am returned to my Lord, surely the reward most fair with Him will be mine.' Then We shall tell the unbelievers the things they have done, and assuredly We shall let them taste a harsh chastisement.(50)
وَإِذا أَنعَمنا عَلَى الإِنسٰنِ أَعرَضَ وَنَـٔا بِجانِبِهِ وَإِذا مَسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَذو دُعاءٍ عَريضٍ(51)
And when We bless man, he turns away and withdraws aside; but when evil visits him, he is full of endless prayers.(51)
قُل أَرَءَيتُم إِن كانَ مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ كَفَرتُم بِهِ مَن أَضَلُّ مِمَّن هُوَ فى شِقاقٍ بَعيدٍ(52)
Say: 'What think you? If it is from God, then you disbelieve in it, who is further astray than he who is in wide schism?'(52)
سَنُريهِم ءايٰتِنا فِى الءافاقِ وَفى أَنفُسِهِم حَتّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُم أَنَّهُ الحَقُّ ۗ أَوَلَم يَكفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ شَهيدٌ(53)
We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in themselves, till it is clear to them that it is the truth. Suffices it not as to thy Lord, that He is witness over everything?(53)
أَلا إِنَّهُم فى مِريَةٍ مِن لِقاءِ رَبِّهِم ۗ أَلا إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ مُحيطٌ(54)
Are they not in doubt touching the encounter with their Lord? Does He not encompass everything?(54)
