بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ الحَمدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذى لَهُ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ وَلَهُ الحَمدُ فِى الءاخِرَةِ ۚ وَهُوَ الحَكيمُ الخَبيرُ(1)
Praise belongs to God to whom belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. To Him belongs praise also in the Hereafter; He is the All-wise, the All-aware.(1)
يَعلَمُ ما يَلِجُ فِى الأَرضِ وَما يَخرُجُ مِنها وَما يَنزِلُ مِنَ السَّماءِ وَما يَعرُجُ فيها ۚ وَهُوَ الرَّحيمُ الغَفورُ(2)
He knows what penetrates into the earth, and what comes forth from it, what comes down from heaven, and what goes up to it; He is the All-compassionate, the All-forgiving.(2)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لا تَأتينَا السّاعَةُ ۖ قُل بَلىٰ وَرَبّى لَتَأتِيَنَّكُم عٰلِمِ الغَيبِ ۖ لا يَعزُبُ عَنهُ مِثقالُ ذَرَّةٍ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَلا فِى الأَرضِ وَلا أَصغَرُ مِن ذٰلِكَ وَلا أَكبَرُ إِلّا فى كِتٰبٍ مُبينٍ(3)
The unbelievers say, 'The Hour will never come to us.' Say: 'Yes indeed, by my Lord, it shall come to you, by Him who knows the Unseen; not so much as the weight of an ant in heaven and earth escapes from Him, neither is aught smaller than that, or greater, but it is in a Manifest Book;(3)
لِيَجزِىَ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم مَغفِرَةٌ وَرِزقٌ كَريمٌ(4)
that He may recompense those who believe, and do righteous deeds; theirs shall be forgiveness and generous provision.(4)
وَالَّذينَ سَعَو فى ءايٰتِنا مُعٰجِزينَ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم عَذابٌ مِن رِجزٍ أَليمٌ(5)
'And those who strive against Our signs to void them -- theirs shall be a chastisement of painful wrath.'(5)
وَيَرَى الَّذينَ أوتُوا العِلمَ الَّذى أُنزِلَ إِلَيكَ مِن رَبِّكَ هُوَ الحَقَّ وَيَهدى إِلىٰ صِرٰطِ العَزيزِ الحَميدِ(6)
Those who have been given the knowledge see that what has been sent down to thee from thy Lord is the truth, and guides to the path of the All-mighty, the All-laudable.(6)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا هَل نَدُلُّكُم عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ يُنَبِّئُكُم إِذا مُزِّقتُم كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ إِنَّكُم لَفى خَلقٍ جَديدٍ(7)
The unbelievers say, 'Shall we point you to a man who will tell you, when you have been utterly torn to pieces, then you shall be in a new creation?'(7)
أَفتَرىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَم بِهِ جِنَّةٌ ۗ بَلِ الَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِالءاخِرَةِ فِى العَذابِ وَالضَّلٰلِ البَعيدِ(8)
What, has he forged against God a lie, or is he possessed? Not so; but those who believe not in the Hereafter are in chastisement and far error.(8)
أَفَلَم يَرَوا إِلىٰ ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم مِنَ السَّماءِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ إِن نَشَأ نَخسِف بِهِمُ الأَرضَ أَو نُسقِط عَلَيهِم كِسَفًا مِنَ السَّماءِ ۚ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايَةً لِكُلِّ عَبدٍ مُنيبٍ(9)
Have they not regarded what lies before them and what lies behind them of heaven and earth? Did We will, We would make the earth to swallow them, or We would drop down on them lumps from heaven. Surely in that is a sign to every penitent servant.(9)
۞ وَلَقَد ءاتَينا داوۥدَ مِنّا فَضلًا ۖ يٰجِبالُ أَوِّبى مَعَهُ وَالطَّيرَ ۖ وَأَلَنّا لَهُ الحَديدَ(10)
And We gave David bounty from Us: 'O you mountains, echo God's praises with him, and you birds!' And We softened for him iron:(10)
أَنِ اعمَل سٰبِغٰتٍ وَقَدِّر فِى السَّردِ ۖ وَاعمَلوا صٰلِحًا ۖ إِنّى بِما تَعمَلونَ بَصيرٌ(11)
'Fashion wide coats of mail, and measure well the links. ' -- And do ye righteousness, for surely I see the things you do.(11)
وَلِسُلَيمٰنَ الرّيحَ غُدُوُّها شَهرٌ وَرَواحُها شَهرٌ ۖ وَأَسَلنا لَهُ عَينَ القِطرِ ۖ وَمِنَ الجِنِّ مَن يَعمَلُ بَينَ يَدَيهِ بِإِذنِ رَبِّهِ ۖ وَمَن يَزِغ مِنهُم عَن أَمرِنا نُذِقهُ مِن عَذابِ السَّعيرِ(12)
And to Solomon the wind; its morning course was a month's journey, and its evening course was a month's journey. And We made the Fount of Molten Brass to flow for him. And of the jinn, some worked before him by the leave of his Lord; and such of them as swerved away from Our commandment, We would let them taste the chastisement of the Blaze;(12)
يَعمَلونَ لَهُ ما يَشاءُ مِن مَحٰريبَ وَتَمٰثيلَ وَجِفانٍ كَالجَوابِ وَقُدورٍ راسِيٰتٍ ۚ اعمَلوا ءالَ داوۥدَ شُكرًا ۚ وَقَليلٌ مِن عِبادِىَ الشَّكورُ(13)
fashioning for him whatsoever he would -- places of worship, statues, porringers like water-troughs, and anchored cooking-pots. 'Labour, O House of David, in thankfulness; for few indeed are those that are thankful among My servants.'(13)
فَلَمّا قَضَينا عَلَيهِ المَوتَ ما دَلَّهُم عَلىٰ مَوتِهِ إِلّا دابَّةُ الأَرضِ تَأكُلُ مِنسَأَتَهُ ۖ فَلَمّا خَرَّ تَبَيَّنَتِ الجِنُّ أَن لَو كانوا يَعلَمونَ الغَيبَ ما لَبِثوا فِى العَذابِ المُهينِ(14)
And when We decreed that he should die, naught indicated to them that he was dead but the Beast of the Earth devouring his staff; and when he fell down, the jinn saw clearly that, had they only known the Unseen, they would not have continued in the humbling chastisement.(14)
لَقَد كانَ لِسَبَإٍ فى مَسكَنِهِم ءايَةٌ ۖ جَنَّتانِ عَن يَمينٍ وَشِمالٍ ۖ كُلوا مِن رِزقِ رَبِّكُم وَاشكُروا لَهُ ۚ بَلدَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ وَرَبٌّ غَفورٌ(15)
For Sheba also there was a sign in their dwelling-place -- two gardens, one on the right and one on the left: 'Eat of your Lord's provision, and give thanks to Him; a good land, and a Lord All-forgiving.'(15)
فَأَعرَضوا فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم سَيلَ العَرِمِ وَبَدَّلنٰهُم بِجَنَّتَيهِم جَنَّتَينِ ذَواتَى أُكُلٍ خَمطٍ وَأَثلٍ وَشَيءٍ مِن سِدرٍ قَليلٍ(16)
But they turned away; so We loosed on them the Flood of Arim, and We gave them, in exchange for their two gardens, two gardens bearing bitter produce and tamarisk-bushes, and here and there a few lote-trees.(16)
ذٰلِكَ جَزَينٰهُم بِما كَفَروا ۖ وَهَل نُجٰزى إِلَّا الكَفورَ(17)
Thus We recompensed them for their unbelief; and do 'We ever recompense any hut the unbeliever?(17)
وَجَعَلنا بَينَهُم وَبَينَ القُرَى الَّتى بٰرَكنا فيها قُرًى ظٰهِرَةً وَقَدَّرنا فيهَا السَّيرَ ۖ سيروا فيها لَيالِىَ وَأَيّامًا ءامِنينَ(18)
And We set, between them and the cities that We have blessed, cities apparent and well We measured the journey between them: 'Journey among them by night and day in security!'(18)
فَقالوا رَبَّنا بٰعِد بَينَ أَسفارِنا وَظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم فَجَعَلنٰهُم أَحاديثَ وَمَزَّقنٰهُم كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ ۚ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ(19)
But they said, 'Our Lord, prolong the stages of our travel'; and they wronged themselves, so We made them as but tales, and We tore them utterly to pieces. Surely in that are signs for every man enduring, thankful.(19)
وَلَقَد صَدَّقَ عَلَيهِم إِبليسُ ظَنَّهُ فَاتَّبَعوهُ إِلّا فَريقًا مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ(20)
Iblis proved true his opinion of them, and they followed him, except a party of the believers.(20)
وَما كانَ لَهُ عَلَيهِم مِن سُلطٰنٍ إِلّا لِنَعلَمَ مَن يُؤمِنُ بِالءاخِرَةِ مِمَّن هُوَ مِنها فى شَكٍّ ۗ وَرَبُّكَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ حَفيظٌ(21)
Yet he had no authority over them, but that We might know him who believed in the Hereafter from him who was in doubt thereof Thy Lord is Guardian over everything.(21)
قُلِ ادعُوا الَّذينَ زَعَمتُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ۖ لا يَملِكونَ مِثقالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَلا فِى الأَرضِ وَما لَهُم فيهِما مِن شِركٍ وَما لَهُ مِنهُم مِن ظَهيرٍ(22)
Say: 'Call on those you have asserted apart from God; they possess not so much as the weight of an ant in the heavens nor in the earth; they have no partnership in either of them, nor has He in them any supporter.'(22)
وَلا تَنفَعُ الشَّفٰعَةُ عِندَهُ إِلّا لِمَن أَذِنَ لَهُ ۚ حَتّىٰ إِذا فُزِّعَ عَن قُلوبِهِم قالوا ماذا قالَ رَبُّكُم ۖ قالُوا الحَقَّ ۖ وَهُوَ العَلِىُّ الكَبيرُ(23)
Intercession will not avail with Him save for him to whom He gives leave; till, when terror is lifted from their hearts, they will say, "What said your Lord?' They will say, 'The truth; and He is the All-high; the All-great.'(23)
۞ قُل مَن يَرزُقُكُم مِنَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۖ قُلِ اللَّهُ ۖ وَإِنّا أَو إِيّاكُم لَعَلىٰ هُدًى أَو فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(24)
Say: 'Who provides for you out of the heavens and the earth?' Say: 'God.' Surely, either we or you are upon right guidance, or in manifest error.(24)
قُل لا تُسـَٔلونَ عَمّا أَجرَمنا وَلا نُسـَٔلُ عَمّا تَعمَلونَ(25)
Say: 'You will not be questioned concerning our sins, neither shall we be questioned as to what you do.'(25)
قُل يَجمَعُ بَينَنا رَبُّنا ثُمَّ يَفتَحُ بَينَنا بِالحَقِّ وَهُوَ الفَتّاحُ العَليمُ(26)
Say: 'Our Lord will bring us together, then make deliverance between us by the truth. He is the Deliverer, the All-knowing.'(26)
قُل أَرونِىَ الَّذينَ أَلحَقتُم بِهِ شُرَكاءَ ۖ كَلّا ۚ بَل هُوَ اللَّهُ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ(27)
Say: 'Show me those you have joined to Him as associates. No indeed; rather He is God, the All-mighty, the All-wise.'(27)
وَما أَرسَلنٰكَ إِلّا كافَّةً لِلنّاسِ بَشيرًا وَنَذيرًا وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(28)
We have sent thee not, except to mankind entire, good tidings to bear, and warning; but most men do not know it.(28)
وَيَقولونَ مَتىٰ هٰذَا الوَعدُ إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(29)
They say, 'When shall this promise come to pass, if you speak the truth?'(29)
قُل لَكُم ميعادُ يَومٍ لا تَستَـٔخِرونَ عَنهُ ساعَةً وَلا تَستَقدِمونَ(30)
Say: 'You have the tryst of a day that you shall not put back by a single hour nor put it forward.'(30)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لَن نُؤمِنَ بِهٰذَا القُرءانِ وَلا بِالَّذى بَينَ يَدَيهِ ۗ وَلَو تَرىٰ إِذِ الظّٰلِمونَ مَوقوفونَ عِندَ رَبِّهِم يَرجِعُ بَعضُهُم إِلىٰ بَعضٍ القَولَ يَقولُ الَّذينَ استُضعِفوا لِلَّذينَ استَكبَروا لَولا أَنتُم لَكُنّا مُؤمِنينَ(31)
The unbelievers say, 'We will not believe in this Koran, nor in that before it.' Ah, if thou couldst see when the evildoers are stationed before their Lord, bandying argument the one against the other! Those that were abased will say to those that waxed proud, 'Had it not been for you, we would have been believers.(31)
قالَ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا لِلَّذينَ استُضعِفوا أَنَحنُ صَدَدنٰكُم عَنِ الهُدىٰ بَعدَ إِذ جاءَكُم ۖ بَل كُنتُم مُجرِمينَ(32)
Those that waxed proud will say to those that were abased, 'What, did we bar you from the guidance after it came to you? Nay, rather you were sinners.'(32)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ استُضعِفوا لِلَّذينَ استَكبَروا بَل مَكرُ الَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ إِذ تَأمُرونَنا أَن نَكفُرَ بِاللَّهِ وَنَجعَلَ لَهُ أَندادًا ۚ وَأَسَرُّوا النَّدامَةَ لَمّا رَأَوُا العَذابَ وَجَعَلنَا الأَغلٰلَ فى أَعناقِ الَّذينَ كَفَروا ۚ هَل يُجزَونَ إِلّا ما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(33)
And those that were abased will say to those that waxed proud, 'Nay, but devising night and day, when you were ordering us to disbelieve in God, and to set up compeers to Him.' They will be secretly remorseful when they see the chastisement and We put fetters on the necks of the unbelievers; shall they be recompensed except for what they were doing?(33)
وَما أَرسَلنا فى قَريَةٍ مِن نَذيرٍ إِلّا قالَ مُترَفوها إِنّا بِما أُرسِلتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(34)
We sent no warner into any city except its men who lived at ease said, 'We disbelieve in the Message you have been sent with.'(34)
وَقالوا نَحنُ أَكثَرُ أَموٰلًا وَأَولٰدًا وَما نَحنُ بِمُعَذَّبينَ(35)
They also said, 'We are more abundant in wealth and children, and we shall not be chastised.'(35)
قُل إِنَّ رَبّى يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ وَيَقدِرُ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(36)
Say: 'My Lord outspreads and straitens His provision to whomsoever He will, but most men do not know it.'(36)
وَما أَموٰلُكُم وَلا أَولٰدُكُم بِالَّتى تُقَرِّبُكُم عِندَنا زُلفىٰ إِلّا مَن ءامَنَ وَعَمِلَ صٰلِحًا فَأُولٰئِكَ لَهُم جَزاءُ الضِّعفِ بِما عَمِلوا وَهُم فِى الغُرُفٰتِ ءامِنونَ(37)
It is not your wealth nor your children that shall bring you nigh in nearness to Us, except for him who believes, and does righteousness; those -- there awaits them the double recompense for that they did, and they shall be in the lofty chambers in security.(37)
وَالَّذينَ يَسعَونَ فى ءايٰتِنا مُعٰجِزينَ أُولٰئِكَ فِى العَذابِ مُحضَرونَ(38)
And those who strive against Our signs to void them -- those shall be arraigned into the chastisement.(38)
قُل إِنَّ رَبّى يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ وَيَقدِرُ لَهُ ۚ وَما أَنفَقتُم مِن شَيءٍ فَهُوَ يُخلِفُهُ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الرّٰزِقينَ(39)
Say: 'My Lord outspreads and straitens His provision to whomsoever He will of His servants; and whatever thing you shall expend, He will replace it. He is the best of providers.'(39)
وَيَومَ يَحشُرُهُم جَميعًا ثُمَّ يَقولُ لِلمَلٰئِكَةِ أَهٰؤُلاءِ إِيّاكُم كانوا يَعبُدونَ(40)
Upon the day when He shall muster them all together, then He shall say to the angels, 'Was it you these were serving?(40)
قالوا سُبحٰنَكَ أَنتَ وَلِيُّنا مِن دونِهِم ۖ بَل كانوا يَعبُدونَ الجِنَّ ۖ أَكثَرُهُم بِهِم مُؤمِنونَ(41)
They shall say, 'Glory be to Thee'! Thou art our Protector, apart from them; nay rather, they were serving the jinn; most of them believed in them.'(41)
فَاليَومَ لا يَملِكُ بَعضُكُم لِبَعضٍ نَفعًا وَلا ضَرًّا وَنَقولُ لِلَّذينَ ظَلَموا ذوقوا عَذابَ النّارِ الَّتى كُنتُم بِها تُكَذِّبونَ(42)
'Therefore today none of you shall have power to profit or hurt another.' And We shall say to the evildoers, 'Taste the chastisement of the Fire, which you cried lies to!'(42)
وَإِذا تُتلىٰ عَلَيهِم ءايٰتُنا بَيِّنٰتٍ قالوا ما هٰذا إِلّا رَجُلٌ يُريدُ أَن يَصُدَّكُم عَمّا كانَ يَعبُدُ ءاباؤُكُم وَقالوا ما هٰذا إِلّا إِفكٌ مُفتَرًى ۚ وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لِلحَقِّ لَمّا جاءَهُم إِن هٰذا إِلّا سِحرٌ مُبينٌ(43)
And when Our signs are recited to them, clear signs, they say, 'This is naught but a man who desires to bar you from that your fathers served'; and they say, 'This is nothing but a forged calumny.' And the unbelievers say to the truth, when it has come to them, 'This is nothing but manifest sorcery.(43)
وَما ءاتَينٰهُم مِن كُتُبٍ يَدرُسونَها ۖ وَما أَرسَلنا إِلَيهِم قَبلَكَ مِن نَذيرٍ(44)
We have not given them any Books to study, nor have We sent them before thee any warner.(44)
وَكَذَّبَ الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِهِم وَما بَلَغوا مِعشارَ ما ءاتَينٰهُم فَكَذَّبوا رُسُلى ۖ فَكَيفَ كانَ نَكيرِ(45)
Those that were before them also cried lies, yet they reached not a tenth of what We gave them; they cried lies to My Messengers, and how was My horror!(45)
۞ قُل إِنَّما أَعِظُكُم بِوٰحِدَةٍ ۖ أَن تَقوموا لِلَّهِ مَثنىٰ وَفُرٰدىٰ ثُمَّ تَتَفَكَّروا ۚ ما بِصاحِبِكُم مِن جِنَّةٍ ۚ إِن هُوَ إِلّا نَذيرٌ لَكُم بَينَ يَدَى عَذابٍ شَديدٍ(46)
Say: 'I give you but one admonition, that you stand unto God, two by two and one by one, and then reflect: no madness is in your comrade. He is naught but a warner unto you, before a terrible chastisement.'(46)
قُل ما سَأَلتُكُم مِن أَجرٍ فَهُوَ لَكُم ۖ إِن أَجرِىَ إِلّا عَلَى اللَّهِ ۖ وَهُوَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ شَهيدٌ(47)
Say: 'I have asked no wage of you; that shall be yours. My wage falls only upon God; and He is witness over everything.'(47)
قُل إِنَّ رَبّى يَقذِفُ بِالحَقِّ عَلّٰمُ الغُيوبِ(48)
Say: 'My Lord hurls the truth -- the Knower of the Unseen.'(48)
قُل جاءَ الحَقُّ وَما يُبدِئُ البٰطِلُ وَما يُعيدُ(49)
Say. 'Truth has come; falsehood originates not, nor brings again.'(49)
قُل إِن ضَلَلتُ فَإِنَّما أَضِلُّ عَلىٰ نَفسى ۖ وَإِنِ اهتَدَيتُ فَبِما يوحى إِلَىَّ رَبّى ۚ إِنَّهُ سَميعٌ قَريبٌ(50)
Say: 'If I go astray, I go astray only to my own loss; if I am guided, it is by what my Lord reveals to me. He is All-hearing, Ever-nigh.'(50)
وَلَو تَرىٰ إِذ فَزِعوا فَلا فَوتَ وَأُخِذوا مِن مَكانٍ قَريبٍ(51)
Ah, if thou couldst see when they are terrified, and there is no escape, and they are seized from a place near at hand,(51)
وَقالوا ءامَنّا بِهِ وَأَنّىٰ لَهُمُ التَّناوُشُ مِن مَكانٍ بَعيدٍ(52)
and they say, 'We believe in it'; but how can they reach from a place far away,(52)
وَقَد كَفَروا بِهِ مِن قَبلُ ۖ وَيَقذِفونَ بِالغَيبِ مِن مَكانٍ بَعيدٍ(53)
seeing they disbelieved in it before, guessing at the Unseen from a place far away?(53)
وَحيلَ بَينَهُم وَبَينَ ما يَشتَهونَ كَما فُعِلَ بِأَشياعِهِم مِن قَبلُ ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا فى شَكٍّ مُريبٍ(54)
And a barrier is set between them and that they desire, as was done with the likes of them aforetime; they were in doubt disquieting.(54)
