بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الم(1)
Alif Lam Mim(1)
تِلكَ ءايٰتُ الكِتٰبِ الحَكيمِ(2)
Those are the signs of the Wise Book(2)
هُدًى وَرَحمَةً لِلمُحسِنينَ(3)
for a guidance and a mercy to the good-doers(3)
الَّذينَ يُقيمونَ الصَّلوٰةَ وَيُؤتونَ الزَّكوٰةَ وَهُم بِالءاخِرَةِ هُم يوقِنونَ(4)
who perform the prayer, and pay the alms, and have sure faith in the Hereafter.(4)
أُولٰئِكَ عَلىٰ هُدًى مِن رَبِّهِم ۖ وَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ(5)
Those are upon guidance from their Lord; those are the prosperers.(5)
وَمِنَ النّاسِ مَن يَشتَرى لَهوَ الحَديثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ بِغَيرِ عِلمٍ وَيَتَّخِذَها هُزُوًا ۚ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم عَذابٌ مُهينٌ(6)
Some men there are who buy diverting talk to lead astray from the way of God without knowledge, and to take it in mockery; those -- there awaits them a humbling chastisement.(6)
وَإِذا تُتلىٰ عَلَيهِ ءايٰتُنا وَلّىٰ مُستَكبِرًا كَأَن لَم يَسمَعها كَأَنَّ فى أُذُنَيهِ وَقرًا ۖ فَبَشِّرهُ بِعَذابٍ أَليمٍ(7)
And when Our signs are recited to such a man he turns away, waxing proud, as though he heard them not, and in his ears were heaviness; so give him good tidings of a painful chastisement.(7)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ لَهُم جَنّٰتُ النَّعيمِ(8)
Surely those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, there awaits them Gardens of Bliss(8)
خٰلِدينَ فيها ۖ وَعدَ اللَّهِ حَقًّا ۚ وَهُوَ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ(9)
therein to dwell forever -- God's promise in truth; and He is the All-mighty, the All-wise.(9)
خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ بِغَيرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَونَها ۖ وَأَلقىٰ فِى الأَرضِ رَوٰسِىَ أَن تَميدَ بِكُم وَبَثَّ فيها مِن كُلِّ دابَّةٍ ۚ وَأَنزَلنا مِنَ السَّماءِ ماءً فَأَنبَتنا فيها مِن كُلِّ زَوجٍ كَريمٍ(10)
He created the heavens without pillars you can see, and He cast on the earth firm mountains, lest it shake with you, and He scattered abroad in it all manner of crawling thing. And We sent down out of heaven water, and caused to grow in it of every generous kind.(10)
هٰذا خَلقُ اللَّهِ فَأَرونى ماذا خَلَقَ الَّذينَ مِن دونِهِ ۚ بَلِ الظّٰلِمونَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(11)
This is God's creation; now show me what those have created that are apart from Him! Nay, but the evildoers are in manifest error.(11)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا لُقمٰنَ الحِكمَةَ أَنِ اشكُر لِلَّهِ ۚ وَمَن يَشكُر فَإِنَّما يَشكُرُ لِنَفسِهِ ۖ وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَنِىٌّ حَميدٌ(12)
Indeed, We gave Lokman wisdom: 'Give thanks to God. Whosoever gives thanks gives thanks only for his own soul's good, and whosoever is ungrateful -- surely God is All-sufficient, All-laudable.'(12)
وَإِذ قالَ لُقمٰنُ لِابنِهِ وَهُوَ يَعِظُهُ يٰبُنَىَّ لا تُشرِك بِاللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّ الشِّركَ لَظُلمٌ عَظيمٌ(13)
And when Lokman said to his son, admonishing him, 'O my son, do not associate others with God; to associate others with God is a mighty wrong.(13)
وَوَصَّينَا الإِنسٰنَ بِوٰلِدَيهِ حَمَلَتهُ أُمُّهُ وَهنًا عَلىٰ وَهنٍ وَفِصٰلُهُ فى عامَينِ أَنِ اشكُر لى وَلِوٰلِدَيكَ إِلَىَّ المَصيرُ(14)
(And We have charged man concerning his parents -- his mother bore him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning was in two years -- 'Be thankful to Me, and to thy parents; to Me is the homecoming.(14)
وَإِن جٰهَداكَ عَلىٰ أَن تُشرِكَ بى ما لَيسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلمٌ فَلا تُطِعهُما ۖ وَصاحِبهُما فِى الدُّنيا مَعروفًا ۖ وَاتَّبِع سَبيلَ مَن أَنابَ إِلَىَّ ۚ ثُمَّ إِلَىَّ مَرجِعُكُم فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِما كُنتُم تَعمَلونَ(15)
But if they strive with thee to make thee associate with Me that whereof thou hast no knowledge, then do not obey them. Keep them company honourable in this world; but follow the way of him who turns to Me. Then unto Me you shall return, and I shall tell you what you were doing.')(15)
يٰبُنَىَّ إِنَّها إِن تَكُ مِثقالَ حَبَّةٍ مِن خَردَلٍ فَتَكُن فى صَخرَةٍ أَو فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ أَو فِى الأَرضِ يَأتِ بِهَا اللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَطيفٌ خَبيرٌ(16)
'O my son, if it should be but the weight of one grain of mustard-seed, and though it be in a rock, or in the heavens, or in the earth, God shall bring it forth; surely God is All-subtle, All-aware.(16)
يٰبُنَىَّ أَقِمِ الصَّلوٰةَ وَأمُر بِالمَعروفِ وَانهَ عَنِ المُنكَرِ وَاصبِر عَلىٰ ما أَصابَكَ ۖ إِنَّ ذٰلِكَ مِن عَزمِ الأُمورِ(17)
O my son, perform the prayer, and bid unto honour, and forbid dishonour. And bear patiently whatever may befall thee; surely that is true constancy.(17)
وَلا تُصَعِّر خَدَّكَ لِلنّاسِ وَلا تَمشِ فِى الأَرضِ مَرَحًا ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُختالٍ فَخورٍ(18)
Turn not thy cheek away from men in scorn, and walk not in the earth exultantly; God loves not any man proud and boastful.(18)
وَاقصِد فى مَشيِكَ وَاغضُض مِن صَوتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الأَصوٰتِ لَصَوتُ الحَميرِ(19)
Be modest in thy walk, and lower thy voice; the most hideous of voices is the ass's.'(19)
أَلَم تَرَوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ وَأَسبَغَ عَلَيكُم نِعَمَهُ ظٰهِرَةً وَباطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النّاسِ مَن يُجٰدِلُ فِى اللَّهِ بِغَيرِ عِلمٍ وَلا هُدًى وَلا كِتٰبٍ مُنيرٍ(20)
Have you not seen how that God has subjected to you whatsoever is in the heavens and earth, and He has lavished on you His blessings, outward and inward? And among men there is such a one that disputes concerning God without knowledge or guidance, or an illuminating Book;(20)
وَإِذا قيلَ لَهُمُ اتَّبِعوا ما أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ قالوا بَل نَتَّبِعُ ما وَجَدنا عَلَيهِ ءاباءَنا ۚ أَوَلَو كانَ الشَّيطٰنُ يَدعوهُم إِلىٰ عَذابِ السَّعيرِ(21)
and when it is said to them, 'Follow what God has sent down,' they say, 'No; but we will follow such things as we found our fathers doing.' What? Even though Satan were calling them to the chastisement of the burning?(21)
۞ وَمَن يُسلِم وَجهَهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَهُوَ مُحسِنٌ فَقَدِ استَمسَكَ بِالعُروَةِ الوُثقىٰ ۗ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ عٰقِبَةُ الأُمورِ(22)
And whosoever submits his will to God, being a good-doer, has laid hold of the most firm handle; and unto God is the issue of all affairs.(22)
وَمَن كَفَرَ فَلا يَحزُنكَ كُفرُهُ ۚ إِلَينا مَرجِعُهُم فَنُنَبِّئُهُم بِما عَمِلوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَليمٌ بِذاتِ الصُّدورِ(23)
And whoso disbelieves, let not his disbelief grieve thee; unto Us they shall return, and We shall tell them what they did. Surely God knows all the thoughts within the breasts.(23)
نُمَتِّعُهُم قَليلًا ثُمَّ نَضطَرُّهُم إِلىٰ عَذابٍ غَليظٍ(24)
To them We give enjoyment a little, then We compel them to a harsh chastisement.(24)
وَلَئِن سَأَلتَهُم مَن خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ لَيَقولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۚ قُلِ الحَمدُ لِلَّهِ ۚ بَل أَكثَرُهُم لا يَعلَمونَ(25)
If thou askest them, 'Who created the heavens and the earth?' they will say, 'God.' Say: 'Praise belongs to God.' Nay, but most of them have no knowledge.(25)
لِلَّهِ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الغَنِىُّ الحَميدُ(26)
To God belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth; surely God -- He is the All-sufficient, the All-laudable.(26)
وَلَو أَنَّما فِى الأَرضِ مِن شَجَرَةٍ أَقلٰمٌ وَالبَحرُ يَمُدُّهُ مِن بَعدِهِ سَبعَةُ أَبحُرٍ ما نَفِدَت كَلِمٰتُ اللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزيزٌ حَكيمٌ(27)
Though all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea-seven seas after it to replenish it, yet would the Words of God not be spent. God is All-mighty, All-wise.(27)
ما خَلقُكُم وَلا بَعثُكُم إِلّا كَنَفسٍ وٰحِدَةٍ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَميعٌ بَصيرٌ(28)
Your creation and your upraising are as but as a single soul. God is All-hearing, All-seeing.(28)
أَلَم تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يولِجُ الَّيلَ فِى النَّهارِ وَيولِجُ النَّهارَ فِى الَّيلِ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمسَ وَالقَمَرَ كُلٌّ يَجرى إِلىٰ أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ بِما تَعمَلونَ خَبيرٌ(29)
Hast thou not seen how that God makes the night to enter into the day and makes the day to enter into the night. and He has subjected the sun and the moon, each of them running to a stated term, and that God is aware of what you do?(29)
ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الحَقُّ وَأَنَّ ما يَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ البٰطِلُ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ العَلِىُّ الكَبيرُ(30)
That is because God -- He is the Truth, and that they call upon apart from Him -- that is the false; and for that God is the All-high, the All-great.(30)
أَلَم تَرَ أَنَّ الفُلكَ تَجرى فِى البَحرِ بِنِعمَتِ اللَّهِ لِيُرِيَكُم مِن ءايٰتِهِ ۚ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ(31)
Hast thou not seen how that the ships run upon the sea by the blessing of God, that He may show you some of His signs? Surely in that are signs for every man enduring, thankful.(31)
وَإِذا غَشِيَهُم مَوجٌ كَالظُّلَلِ دَعَوُا اللَّهَ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ فَلَمّا نَجّىٰهُم إِلَى البَرِّ فَمِنهُم مُقتَصِدٌ ۚ وَما يَجحَدُ بِـٔايٰتِنا إِلّا كُلُّ خَتّارٍ كَفورٍ(32)
And when the waves cover them like shadows they call upon God, making their religion sincerely His; but when He has delivered them to the land, some of them are lukewarm. And none denies Our signs, except every ungrateful traitor.(32)
يٰأَيُّهَا النّاسُ اتَّقوا رَبَّكُم وَاخشَوا يَومًا لا يَجزى والِدٌ عَن وَلَدِهِ وَلا مَولودٌ هُوَ جازٍ عَن والِدِهِ شَيـًٔا ۚ إِنَّ وَعدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ ۖ فَلا تَغُرَّنَّكُمُ الحَيوٰةُ الدُّنيا وَلا يَغُرَّنَّكُم بِاللَّهِ الغَرورُ(33)
O men, fear your Lord, and dread a day when no father shall give satisfaction for his child, and no child shall give satisfaction for his father whatever. Surely God's promise is true; so let not the present life delude you, and let not the Deluder delude you concerning God.(33)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ عِندَهُ عِلمُ السّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ الغَيثَ وَيَعلَمُ ما فِى الأَرحامِ ۖ وَما تَدرى نَفسٌ ماذا تَكسِبُ غَدًا ۖ وَما تَدرى نَفسٌ بِأَىِّ أَرضٍ تَموتُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَليمٌ خَبيرٌ(34)
Surely God -- He has knowledge of the Hour; He sends down the rain; He knows what is in the wombs. No soul knows what it shall earn tomorrow, and no soul knows in what land it shall die. Surely God is All-knowing, All-aware.(34)
