بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
'Ain. Sin. Qaf.(2)
كَذٰلِكَ يوحى إِلَيكَ وَإِلَى الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِكَ اللَّهُ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ(3)
Thus doth (He) send inspiration to thee as (He did) to those before thee,- Allah, Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.(3)
لَهُ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ ۖ وَهُوَ العَلِىُّ العَظيمُ(4)
To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: and He is Most High, Most Great.(4)
تَكادُ السَّمٰوٰتُ يَتَفَطَّرنَ مِن فَوقِهِنَّ ۚ وَالمَلٰئِكَةُ يُسَبِّحونَ بِحَمدِ رَبِّهِم وَيَستَغفِرونَ لِمَن فِى الأَرضِ ۗ أَلا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الغَفورُ الرَّحيمُ(5)
The heavens are almost rent asunder from above them (by Him Glory): and the angels celebrate the Praises of their Lord, and pray for forgiveness for (all) beings on earth: Behold! Verily Allah is He, the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.(5)
وَالَّذينَ اتَّخَذوا مِن دونِهِ أَولِياءَ اللَّهُ حَفيظٌ عَلَيهِم وَما أَنتَ عَلَيهِم بِوَكيلٍ(6)
And those who take as protectors others besides Him,- Allah doth watch over them; and thou art not the disposer of their affairs.(6)
وَكَذٰلِكَ أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ قُرءانًا عَرَبِيًّا لِتُنذِرَ أُمَّ القُرىٰ وَمَن حَولَها وَتُنذِرَ يَومَ الجَمعِ لا رَيبَ فيهِ ۚ فَريقٌ فِى الجَنَّةِ وَفَريقٌ فِى السَّعيرِ(7)
Thus have We sent by inspiration to thee an Arabic Qur'an: that thou mayest warn the Mother of Cities and all around her,- and warn (them) of the Day of Assembly, of which there is no doubt: (when) some will be in the Garden, and some in the Blazing Fire.(7)
وَلَو شاءَ اللَّهُ لَجَعَلَهُم أُمَّةً وٰحِدَةً وَلٰكِن يُدخِلُ مَن يَشاءُ فى رَحمَتِهِ ۚ وَالظّٰلِمونَ ما لَهُم مِن وَلِىٍّ وَلا نَصيرٍ(8)
If Allah had so willed, He could have made them a single people; but He admits whom He will to His Mercy; and the Wrong-doers will have no protector nor helper.(8)
أَمِ اتَّخَذوا مِن دونِهِ أَولِياءَ ۖ فَاللَّهُ هُوَ الوَلِىُّ وَهُوَ يُحىِ المَوتىٰ وَهُوَ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ(9)
What! Have they taken (for worship) protectors besides Him? But it is Allah,- He is the Protector, and it is He Who gives life to the dead: It is He Who has power over all things,(9)
وَمَا اختَلَفتُم فيهِ مِن شَيءٍ فَحُكمُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ ذٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبّى عَلَيهِ تَوَكَّلتُ وَإِلَيهِ أُنيبُ(10)
Whatever it be wherein ye differ, the decision thereof is with Allah: such is Allah my Lord: In Him I trust, and to Him I turn.(10)
فاطِرُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ جَعَلَ لَكُم مِن أَنفُسِكُم أَزوٰجًا وَمِنَ الأَنعٰمِ أَزوٰجًا ۖ يَذرَؤُكُم فيهِ ۚ لَيسَ كَمِثلِهِ شَيءٌ ۖ وَهُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ(11)
(He is) the Creator of the heavens and the earth: He has made for you pairs from among yourselves, and pairs among cattle: by this means does He multiply you: there is nothing whatever like unto Him, and He is the One that hears and sees (all things).(11)
لَهُ مَقاليدُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۖ يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ وَيَقدِرُ ۚ إِنَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيءٍ عَليمٌ(12)
To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth: He enlarges and restricts. The Sustenance to whom He will: for He knows full well all things.(12)
۞ شَرَعَ لَكُم مِنَ الدّينِ ما وَصّىٰ بِهِ نوحًا وَالَّذى أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ وَما وَصَّينا بِهِ إِبرٰهيمَ وَموسىٰ وَعيسىٰ ۖ أَن أَقيمُوا الدّينَ وَلا تَتَفَرَّقوا فيهِ ۚ كَبُرَ عَلَى المُشرِكينَ ما تَدعوهُم إِلَيهِ ۚ اللَّهُ يَجتَبى إِلَيهِ مَن يَشاءُ وَيَهدى إِلَيهِ مَن يُنيبُ(13)
The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - the which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).(13)
وَما تَفَرَّقوا إِلّا مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَهُمُ العِلمُ بَغيًا بَينَهُم ۚ وَلَولا كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَت مِن رَبِّكَ إِلىٰ أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى لَقُضِىَ بَينَهُم ۚ وَإِنَّ الَّذينَ أورِثُوا الكِتٰبَ مِن بَعدِهِم لَفى شَكٍّ مِنهُ مُريبٍ(14)
And they became divided only after Knowledge reached them,- through selfish envy as between themselves. Had it not been for a Word that went forth before from thy Lord, (tending) to a Term appointed, the matter would have been settled between them: But truly those who have inherited the Book after them are in suspicious (disquieting) doubt concerning it.(14)
فَلِذٰلِكَ فَادعُ ۖ وَاستَقِم كَما أُمِرتَ ۖ وَلا تَتَّبِع أَهواءَهُم ۖ وَقُل ءامَنتُ بِما أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ مِن كِتٰبٍ ۖ وَأُمِرتُ لِأَعدِلَ بَينَكُمُ ۖ اللَّهُ رَبُّنا وَرَبُّكُم ۖ لَنا أَعمٰلُنا وَلَكُم أَعمٰلُكُم ۖ لا حُجَّةَ بَينَنا وَبَينَكُمُ ۖ اللَّهُ يَجمَعُ بَينَنا ۖ وَإِلَيهِ المَصيرُ(15)
Now then, for that (reason), call (them to the Faith), and stand steadfast as thou art commanded, nor follow thou their vain desires; but say: "I believe in the Book which Allah has sent down; and I am commanded to judge justly between you. Allah is our Lord and your Lord: for us (is the responsibility for) our deeds, and for you for your deeds. There is no contention between us and you. Allah will bring us together, and to Him is (our) Final Goal.(15)
وَالَّذينَ يُحاجّونَ فِى اللَّهِ مِن بَعدِ مَا استُجيبَ لَهُ حُجَّتُهُم داحِضَةٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِم وَعَلَيهِم غَضَبٌ وَلَهُم عَذابٌ شَديدٌ(16)
But those who dispute concerning Allah after He has been accepted,- futile is their dispute in the Sight of their Lord: on them will be a Penalty terrible.(16)
اللَّهُ الَّذى أَنزَلَ الكِتٰبَ بِالحَقِّ وَالميزانَ ۗ وَما يُدريكَ لَعَلَّ السّاعَةَ قَريبٌ(17)
It is Allah Who has sent down the Book in Truth, and the Balance (by which to weigh conduct). And what will make thee realise that perhaps the Hour is close at hand?(17)
يَستَعجِلُ بِهَا الَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِها ۖ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا مُشفِقونَ مِنها وَيَعلَمونَ أَنَّهَا الحَقُّ ۗ أَلا إِنَّ الَّذينَ يُمارونَ فِى السّاعَةِ لَفى ضَلٰلٍ بَعيدٍ(18)
Only those wish to hasten it who believe not in it: those who believe hold it in awe, and know that it is the Truth. Behold, verily those that dispute concerning the Hour are far astray.(18)
اللَّهُ لَطيفٌ بِعِبادِهِ يَرزُقُ مَن يَشاءُ ۖ وَهُوَ القَوِىُّ العَزيزُ(19)
Gracious is Allah to His servants: He gives Sustenance to whom He pleases: and He has power and can carry out His Will.(19)
مَن كانَ يُريدُ حَرثَ الءاخِرَةِ نَزِد لَهُ فى حَرثِهِ ۖ وَمَن كانَ يُريدُ حَرثَ الدُّنيا نُؤتِهِ مِنها وَما لَهُ فِى الءاخِرَةِ مِن نَصيبٍ(20)
To any that desires the tilth of the Hereafter, We give increase in his tilth, and to any that desires the tilth of this world, We grant somewhat thereof, but he has no share or lot in the Hereafter.(20)
أَم لَهُم شُرَكٰؤُا۟ شَرَعوا لَهُم مِنَ الدّينِ ما لَم يَأذَن بِهِ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَولا كَلِمَةُ الفَصلِ لَقُضِىَ بَينَهُم ۗ وَإِنَّ الظّٰلِمينَ لَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(21)
What! have they partners (in godhead), who have established for them some religion without the permission of Allah? Had it not been for the Decree of Judgment, the matter would have been decided between them (at once). But verily the Wrong-doers will have a grievous Penalty.(21)
تَرَى الظّٰلِمينَ مُشفِقينَ مِمّا كَسَبوا وَهُوَ واقِعٌ بِهِم ۗ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ فى رَوضاتِ الجَنّاتِ ۖ لَهُم ما يَشاءونَ عِندَ رَبِّهِم ۚ ذٰلِكَ هُوَ الفَضلُ الكَبيرُ(22)
Thou wilt see the Wrong-doers in fear on account of what they have earned, and (the burden of) that must (necessarily) fall on them. But those who believe and work righteous deeds will be in the luxuriant meads of the Gardens: they shall have, before their Lord, all that they wish for. That will indeed be the magnificent Bounty (of Allah).(22)
ذٰلِكَ الَّذى يُبَشِّرُ اللَّهُ عِبادَهُ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ ۗ قُل لا أَسـَٔلُكُم عَلَيهِ أَجرًا إِلَّا المَوَدَّةَ فِى القُربىٰ ۗ وَمَن يَقتَرِف حَسَنَةً نَزِد لَهُ فيها حُسنًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفورٌ شَكورٌ(23)
That is (the Bounty) whereof Allah gives Glad Tidings to His Servants who believe and do righteous deeds. Say: "No reward do I ask of you for this except the love of those near of kin." And if any one earns any good, We shall give him an increase of good in respect thereof: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (service).(23)
أَم يَقولونَ افتَرىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا ۖ فَإِن يَشَإِ اللَّهُ يَختِم عَلىٰ قَلبِكَ ۗ وَيَمحُ اللَّهُ البٰطِلَ وَيُحِقُّ الحَقَّ بِكَلِمٰتِهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَليمٌ بِذاتِ الصُّدورِ(24)
What! Do they say, "He has forged a falsehood against Allah"? But if Allah willed, He could seal up thy heart. And Allah blots out Vanity, and proves the Truth by His Words. For He knows well the secrets of all hearts.(24)
وَهُوَ الَّذى يَقبَلُ التَّوبَةَ عَن عِبادِهِ وَيَعفوا عَنِ السَّيِّـٔاتِ وَيَعلَمُ ما تَفعَلونَ(25)
He is the One that accepts repentance from His Servants and forgives sins: and He knows all that ye do.(25)
وَيَستَجيبُ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَيَزيدُهُم مِن فَضلِهِ ۚ وَالكٰفِرونَ لَهُم عَذابٌ شَديدٌ(26)
And He listens to those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, and gives them increase of His Bounty: but for the Unbelievers their is a terrible Penalty.(26)
۞ وَلَو بَسَطَ اللَّهُ الرِّزقَ لِعِبادِهِ لَبَغَوا فِى الأَرضِ وَلٰكِن يُنَزِّلُ بِقَدَرٍ ما يَشاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ بِعِبادِهِ خَبيرٌ بَصيرٌ(27)
If Allah were to enlarge the provision for His Servants, they would indeed transgress beyond all bounds through the earth; but he sends (it) down in due measure as He pleases. For He is with His Servants Well-acquainted, Watchful.(27)
وَهُوَ الَّذى يُنَزِّلُ الغَيثَ مِن بَعدِ ما قَنَطوا وَيَنشُرُ رَحمَتَهُ ۚ وَهُوَ الوَلِىُّ الحَميدُ(28)
He is the One that sends down rain (even) after (men) have given up all hope, and scatters His Mercy (far and wide). And He is the Protector, Worthy of all Praise.(28)
وَمِن ءايٰتِهِ خَلقُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَما بَثَّ فيهِما مِن دابَّةٍ ۚ وَهُوَ عَلىٰ جَمعِهِم إِذا يَشاءُ قَديرٌ(29)
And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the living creatures that He has scattered through them: and He has power to gather them together when He wills.(29)
وَما أَصٰبَكُم مِن مُصيبَةٍ فَبِما كَسَبَت أَيديكُم وَيَعفوا عَن كَثيرٍ(30)
Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.(30)
وَما أَنتُم بِمُعجِزينَ فِى الأَرضِ ۖ وَما لَكُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ مِن وَلِىٍّ وَلا نَصيرٍ(31)
Nor can ye frustrate (aught), (fleeing) through the earth; nor have ye, besides Allah, any one to protect or to help.(31)
وَمِن ءايٰتِهِ الجَوارِ فِى البَحرِ كَالأَعلٰمِ(32)
And among His Signs are the ships, smooth-running through the ocean, (tall) as mountains.(32)
إِن يَشَأ يُسكِنِ الرّيحَ فَيَظلَلنَ رَواكِدَ عَلىٰ ظَهرِهِ ۚ إِنَّ فى ذٰلِكَ لَءايٰتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ(33)
If it be His Will He can still the Wind: then would they become motionless on the back of the (ocean). Verily in this are Signs for everyone who patiently perseveres and is grateful.(33)
أَو يوبِقهُنَّ بِما كَسَبوا وَيَعفُ عَن كَثيرٍ(34)
Or He can cause them to perish because of the (evil) which (the men) have earned; but much doth He forgive.(34)
وَيَعلَمَ الَّذينَ يُجٰدِلونَ فى ءايٰتِنا ما لَهُم مِن مَحيصٍ(35)
But let those know, who dispute about Our Signs, that there is for them no way of escape.(35)
فَما أوتيتُم مِن شَيءٍ فَمَتٰعُ الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۖ وَما عِندَ اللَّهِ خَيرٌ وَأَبقىٰ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَلىٰ رَبِّهِم يَتَوَكَّلونَ(36)
Whatever ye are given (here) is (but) a convenience of this life: but that which is with Allah is better and more lasting: (it is) for those who believe and put their trust in their Lord:(36)
وَالَّذينَ يَجتَنِبونَ كَبٰئِرَ الإِثمِ وَالفَوٰحِشَ وَإِذا ما غَضِبوا هُم يَغفِرونَ(37)
Those who avoid the greater crimes and shameful deeds, and, when they are angry even then forgive;(37)
وَالَّذينَ استَجابوا لِرَبِّهِم وَأَقامُوا الصَّلوٰةَ وَأَمرُهُم شورىٰ بَينَهُم وَمِمّا رَزَقنٰهُم يُنفِقونَ(38)
Those who hearken to their Lord, and establish regular Prayer; who (conduct) their affairs by mutual Consultation; who spend out of what We bestow on them for Sustenance;(38)
وَالَّذينَ إِذا أَصابَهُمُ البَغىُ هُم يَنتَصِرونَ(39)
And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, (are not cowed but) help and defend themselves.(39)
وَجَزٰؤُا۟ سَيِّئَةٍ سَيِّئَةٌ مِثلُها ۖ فَمَن عَفا وَأَصلَحَ فَأَجرُهُ عَلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ لا يُحِبُّ الظّٰلِمينَ(40)
The recompense for an injury is an injury equal thereto (in degree): but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation, his reward is due from Allah: for (Allah) loveth not those who do wrong.(40)
وَلَمَنِ انتَصَرَ بَعدَ ظُلمِهِ فَأُولٰئِكَ ما عَلَيهِم مِن سَبيلٍ(41)
But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong (done) to them, against such there is no cause of blame.(41)
إِنَّمَا السَّبيلُ عَلَى الَّذينَ يَظلِمونَ النّاسَ وَيَبغونَ فِى الأَرضِ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ لَهُم عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(42)
The blame is only against those who oppress men and wrong-doing and insolently transgress beyond bounds through the land, defying right and justice: for such there will be a penalty grievous.(42)
وَلَمَن صَبَرَ وَغَفَرَ إِنَّ ذٰلِكَ لَمِن عَزمِ الأُمورِ(43)
But indeed if any show patience and forgive, that would truly be an exercise of courageous will and resolution in the conduct of affairs.(43)
وَمَن يُضلِلِ اللَّهُ فَما لَهُ مِن وَلِىٍّ مِن بَعدِهِ ۗ وَتَرَى الظّٰلِمينَ لَمّا رَأَوُا العَذابَ يَقولونَ هَل إِلىٰ مَرَدٍّ مِن سَبيلٍ(44)
For any whom Allah leaves astray, there is no protector thereafter. And thou wilt see the Wrong-doers, when in sight of the Penalty, Say: "Is there any way (to effect) a return?"(44)
وَتَرىٰهُم يُعرَضونَ عَلَيها خٰشِعينَ مِنَ الذُّلِّ يَنظُرونَ مِن طَرفٍ خَفِىٍّ ۗ وَقالَ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا إِنَّ الخٰسِرينَ الَّذينَ خَسِروا أَنفُسَهُم وَأَهليهِم يَومَ القِيٰمَةِ ۗ أَلا إِنَّ الظّٰلِمينَ فى عَذابٍ مُقيمٍ(45)
And thou wilt see them brought forward to the (Penalty), in a humble frame of mind because of (their) disgrace, (and) looking with a stealthy glance. And the Believers will say: "Those are indeed in loss, who have given to perdition their own selves and those belonging to them on the Day of Judgment. Behold! Truly the Wrong-doers are in a lasting Penalty!"(45)
وَما كانَ لَهُم مِن أَولِياءَ يَنصُرونَهُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ۗ وَمَن يُضلِلِ اللَّهُ فَما لَهُ مِن سَبيلٍ(46)
And no protectors have they to help them, other than Allah. And for any whom Allah leaves to stray, there is no way (to the Goal).(46)
استَجيبوا لِرَبِّكُم مِن قَبلِ أَن يَأتِىَ يَومٌ لا مَرَدَّ لَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ ۚ ما لَكُم مِن مَلجَإٍ يَومَئِذٍ وَما لَكُم مِن نَكيرٍ(47)
Hearken ye to your Lord, before there come a Day which there will be no putting back, because of (the Ordainment of) Allah! that Day there will be for you no place of refuge nor will there be for you any room for denial (of your sins)!(47)
فَإِن أَعرَضوا فَما أَرسَلنٰكَ عَلَيهِم حَفيظًا ۖ إِن عَلَيكَ إِلَّا البَلٰغُ ۗ وَإِنّا إِذا أَذَقنَا الإِنسٰنَ مِنّا رَحمَةً فَرِحَ بِها ۖ وَإِن تُصِبهُم سَيِّئَةٌ بِما قَدَّمَت أَيديهِم فَإِنَّ الإِنسٰنَ كَفورٌ(48)
If then they run away, We have not sent thee as a guard over them. Thy duty is but to convey (the Message). And truly, when We give man a taste of a Mercy from Ourselves, he doth exult thereat, but when some ill happens to him, on account of the deeds which his hands have sent forth, truly then is man ungrateful!(48)
لِلَّهِ مُلكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ ۚ يَخلُقُ ما يَشاءُ ۚ يَهَبُ لِمَن يَشاءُ إِنٰثًا وَيَهَبُ لِمَن يَشاءُ الذُّكورَ(49)
To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills (and plans). He bestows (children) male or female according to His Will (and Plan),(49)
أَو يُزَوِّجُهُم ذُكرانًا وَإِنٰثًا ۖ وَيَجعَلُ مَن يَشاءُ عَقيمًا ۚ إِنَّهُ عَليمٌ قَديرٌ(50)
Or He bestows both males and females, and He leaves barren whom He will: for He is full of Knowledge and Power.(50)
۞ وَما كانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلّا وَحيًا أَو مِن وَرائِ حِجابٍ أَو يُرسِلَ رَسولًا فَيوحِىَ بِإِذنِهِ ما يَشاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِىٌّ حَكيمٌ(51)
It is not fitting for a man that Allah should speak to him except by inspiration, or from behind a veil, or by the sending of a messenger to reveal, with Allah's permission, what Allah wills: for He is Most High, Most Wise.(51)
وَكَذٰلِكَ أَوحَينا إِلَيكَ روحًا مِن أَمرِنا ۚ ما كُنتَ تَدرى مَا الكِتٰبُ وَلَا الإيمٰنُ وَلٰكِن جَعَلنٰهُ نورًا نَهدى بِهِ مَن نَشاءُ مِن عِبادِنا ۚ وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهدى إِلىٰ صِرٰطٍ مُستَقيمٍ(52)
And thus have We, by Our Command, sent inspiration to thee: thou knewest not (before) what was Revelation, and what was Faith; but We have made the (Qur'an) a Light, wherewith We guide such of Our servants as We will; and verily thou dost guide (men) to the Straight Way,-(52)
صِرٰطِ اللَّهِ الَّذى لَهُ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ ۗ أَلا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَصيرُ الأُمورُ(53)
The Way of Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Behold (how) all affairs tend towards Allah!(53)
