بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
HA MIM.(1)
تَنزيلُ الكِتٰبِ مِنَ اللَّهِ العَزيزِ الحَكيمِ(2)
The revelation of this Book is from God, the mighty and all-wise.(2)
ما خَلَقنَا السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ وَما بَينَهُما إِلّا بِالحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ۚ وَالَّذينَ كَفَروا عَمّا أُنذِروا مُعرِضونَ(3)
We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them but with a purpose for an appointed time. Yet the unbelievers turn away from the warning.(3)
قُل أَرَءَيتُم ما تَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ أَرونى ماذا خَلَقوا مِنَ الأَرضِ أَم لَهُم شِركٌ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ ۖ ائتونى بِكِتٰبٍ مِن قَبلِ هٰذا أَو أَثٰرَةٍ مِن عِلمٍ إِن كُنتُم صٰدِقينَ(4)
Say: "Have you thought of those you invoke apart from God? Show me what they have created of the earth, or, do they have a share in the heavens? Bring me an earlier Book than this, or inherited knowledge, if you are truthful."(4)
وَمَن أَضَلُّ مِمَّن يَدعوا مِن دونِ اللَّهِ مَن لا يَستَجيبُ لَهُ إِلىٰ يَومِ القِيٰمَةِ وَهُم عَن دُعائِهِم غٰفِلونَ(5)
Who is more astray than he who calls on those, apart from God, who cannot answer their prayers till the Day of Resurrection, and are even unaware of being called.(5)
وَإِذا حُشِرَ النّاسُ كانوا لَهُم أَعداءً وَكانوا بِعِبادَتِهِم كٰفِرينَ(6)
When all men are gathered together (on that Day) they will become their enemies and deny their worship.(6)
وَإِذا تُتلىٰ عَلَيهِم ءايٰتُنا بَيِّنٰتٍ قالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لِلحَقِّ لَمّا جاءَهُم هٰذا سِحرٌ مُبينٌ(7)
When Our clear revelations are read out to them, the infidels say of the truth, when it has come to them: "This is pure magic."(7)
أَم يَقولونَ افتَرىٰهُ ۖ قُل إِنِ افتَرَيتُهُ فَلا تَملِكونَ لى مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيـًٔا ۖ هُوَ أَعلَمُ بِما تُفيضونَ فيهِ ۖ كَفىٰ بِهِ شَهيدًا بَينى وَبَينَكُم ۖ وَهُوَ الغَفورُ الرَّحيمُ(8)
Do they say: "He has fabricated it?" Tell them: "If I have fabricated it, you have no power to save me from God. He knows what you are busy with concerning this. He is sufficient as witness between you and me; yet He is forgiving, ever-merciful."(8)
قُل ما كُنتُ بِدعًا مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَما أَدرى ما يُفعَلُ بى وَلا بِكُم ۖ إِن أَتَّبِعُ إِلّا ما يوحىٰ إِلَىَّ وَما أَنا۠ إِلّا نَذيرٌ مُبينٌ(9)
Say: "I am not a new Messenger to come, nor do I know what is to be done to me or you. I only follow what is revealed to me. My duty is only to warn you clearly."(9)
قُل أَرَءَيتُم إِن كانَ مِن عِندِ اللَّهِ وَكَفَرتُم بِهِ وَشَهِدَ شاهِدٌ مِن بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ عَلىٰ مِثلِهِ فَـٔامَنَ وَاستَكبَرتُم ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهدِى القَومَ الظّٰلِمينَ(10)
Tell them: "Think (of the consequence) if this is from God and you deny it when a witness from the people of Israel had testified to the like of it and come to believe, while you spurn it?" Assuredly God does not guide a wicked people.(10)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ كَفَروا لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا لَو كانَ خَيرًا ما سَبَقونا إِلَيهِ ۚ وَإِذ لَم يَهتَدوا بِهِ فَسَيَقولونَ هٰذا إِفكٌ قَديمٌ(11)
Those who deny say of those who believe: "Had there been any good in it they would not have preceded us in coming to it." Since they have not taken guidance from it, they will say: "This is the same old lie."(11)
وَمِن قَبلِهِ كِتٰبُ موسىٰ إِمامًا وَرَحمَةً ۚ وَهٰذا كِتٰبٌ مُصَدِّقٌ لِسانًا عَرَبِيًّا لِيُنذِرَ الَّذينَ ظَلَموا وَبُشرىٰ لِلمُحسِنينَ(12)
There was the Book of Moses before this, a guide and a mercy; and here is this Book confirming it in lucid language, warning those who are wicked, and giving happy tidings to the righteous.(12)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ قالوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ استَقٰموا فَلا خَوفٌ عَلَيهِم وَلا هُم يَحزَنونَ(13)
Surely for those who say, "God is our Lord," and then remain firm, there is no fear or regret.(13)
أُولٰئِكَ أَصحٰبُ الجَنَّةِ خٰلِدينَ فيها جَزاءً بِما كانوا يَعمَلونَ(14)
They are men of Paradise where they will abide for ever as a recompense for what they had done.(14)
وَوَصَّينَا الإِنسٰنَ بِوٰلِدَيهِ إِحسٰنًا ۖ حَمَلَتهُ أُمُّهُ كُرهًا وَوَضَعَتهُ كُرهًا ۖ وَحَملُهُ وَفِصٰلُهُ ثَلٰثونَ شَهرًا ۚ حَتّىٰ إِذا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ وَبَلَغَ أَربَعينَ سَنَةً قالَ رَبِّ أَوزِعنى أَن أَشكُرَ نِعمَتَكَ الَّتى أَنعَمتَ عَلَىَّ وَعَلىٰ وٰلِدَىَّ وَأَن أَعمَلَ صٰلِحًا تَرضىٰهُ وَأَصلِح لى فى ذُرِّيَّتى ۖ إِنّى تُبتُ إِلَيكَ وَإِنّى مِنَ المُسلِمينَ(15)
We have enjoined on man to be good to his parents: His mother carries him in her womb with hardship, and gives birth to him in pain. Thirty months is the period of her carrying and weaning him. When he attains to manhood and the age of forty, he says: "O Lord, guide me to thank You for the favours You have bestowed on me and my parents, and to do things good as may please You, and give me a righteous off-spring. I turn to You in penitence and submit."(15)
أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ نَتَقَبَّلُ عَنهُم أَحسَنَ ما عَمِلوا وَنَتَجاوَزُ عَن سَيِّـٔاتِهِم فى أَصحٰبِ الجَنَّةِ ۖ وَعدَ الصِّدقِ الَّذى كانوا يوعَدونَ(16)
They are those from whom We accept the very best of what they have done, and overlook their faults. They will be among the inmates of Paradise: A true promise they have been made.(16)
وَالَّذى قالَ لِوٰلِدَيهِ أُفٍّ لَكُما أَتَعِدانِنى أَن أُخرَجَ وَقَد خَلَتِ القُرونُ مِن قَبلى وَهُما يَستَغيثانِ اللَّهَ وَيلَكَ ءامِن إِنَّ وَعدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَيَقولُ ما هٰذا إِلّا أَسٰطيرُ الأَوَّلينَ(17)
But he who says to his parents: "Shame on you: You intimidate me that I will be resurrected when many generations will have passed before me?" And (the parents) would implore God's help: "Woe to you. You better believe. The promise of God is certainly true." Yet he answers: "These are only fables of long ago."(17)
أُولٰئِكَ الَّذينَ حَقَّ عَلَيهِمُ القَولُ فى أُمَمٍ قَد خَلَت مِن قَبلِهِم مِنَ الجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ ۖ إِنَّهُم كانوا خٰسِرينَ(18)
They are those on whom the sentence of God would be justified as on communities of jinns and men before them. They will surely perish.(18)
وَلِكُلٍّ دَرَجٰتٌ مِمّا عَمِلوا ۖ وَلِيُوَفِّيَهُم أَعمٰلَهُم وَهُم لا يُظلَمونَ(19)
Each will have a position in accordance with his deeds; and no wrong will be done to them.(19)
وَيَومَ يُعرَضُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا عَلَى النّارِ أَذهَبتُم طَيِّبٰتِكُم فى حَياتِكُمُ الدُّنيا وَاستَمتَعتُم بِها فَاليَومَ تُجزَونَ عَذابَ الهونِ بِما كُنتُم تَستَكبِرونَ فِى الأَرضِ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ وَبِما كُنتُم تَفسُقونَ(20)
The day the unbelievers are brought to the Fire, (it will be said): "You wasted all your good deeds in the life of the world, and enjoyed them to the full. You will now be requited with a shameful punishment, for you behaved with arrogance for no reason on the earth, and acted wickedly."(20)
۞ وَاذكُر أَخا عادٍ إِذ أَنذَرَ قَومَهُ بِالأَحقافِ وَقَد خَلَتِ النُّذُرُ مِن بَينِ يَدَيهِ وَمِن خَلفِهِ أَلّا تَعبُدوا إِلَّا اللَّهَ إِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم عَذابَ يَومٍ عَظيمٍ(21)
Remember (Hud) the brother of 'Ad. When he warned his people in Ahqaf -- though many a warner had come and gone before and after him: "Do not worship any one but God, for I fear the punishment of an awful day for you,"(21)
قالوا أَجِئتَنا لِتَأفِكَنا عَن ءالِهَتِنا فَأتِنا بِما تَعِدُنا إِن كُنتَ مِنَ الصّٰدِقينَ(22)
They said: "Have you come to turn us away from our gods? Then bring upon us what you predict for us, if you are a man of truth."(22)
قالَ إِنَّمَا العِلمُ عِندَ اللَّهِ وَأُبَلِّغُكُم ما أُرسِلتُ بِهِ وَلٰكِنّى أَرىٰكُم قَومًا تَجهَلونَ(23)
He said: "Only God has the knowledge. I only convey to you what I have been sent with. But I see you are a foolish people."(23)
فَلَمّا رَأَوهُ عارِضًا مُستَقبِلَ أَودِيَتِهِم قالوا هٰذا عارِضٌ مُمطِرُنا ۚ بَل هُوَ مَا استَعجَلتُم بِهِ ۖ ريحٌ فيها عَذابٌ أَليمٌ(24)
So when they saw it as a cloud advancing towards their valleys, they said: "This is just a passing cloud that will bring us rain." "No. It is what you were trying to hasten: The wind which carries the grievous punishment!(24)
تُدَمِّرُ كُلَّ شَيءٍ بِأَمرِ رَبِّها فَأَصبَحوا لا يُرىٰ إِلّا مَسٰكِنُهُم ۚ كَذٰلِكَ نَجزِى القَومَ المُجرِمينَ(25)
It will destroy everything at the bidding of its Lord." So in the morning there was nothing but their empty dwellings to be seen. That is how We requite the sinners.(25)
وَلَقَد مَكَّنّٰهُم فيما إِن مَكَّنّٰكُم فيهِ وَجَعَلنا لَهُم سَمعًا وَأَبصٰرًا وَأَفـِٔدَةً فَما أَغنىٰ عَنهُم سَمعُهُم وَلا أَبصٰرُهُم وَلا أَفـِٔدَتُهُم مِن شَيءٍ إِذ كانوا يَجحَدونَ بِـٔايٰتِ اللَّهِ وَحاقَ بِهِم ما كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(26)
We had strengthened them as We have not strengthened you, had given them ears and eyes and hearts; but nothing stood them in good stead, neither their ears nor eyes nor hearts, for they rejected the signs of God, and were seized by what they had mocked.(26)
وَلَقَد أَهلَكنا ما حَولَكُم مِنَ القُرىٰ وَصَرَّفنَا الءايٰتِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(27)
We have destroyed habitations all around you, having explained Our signs in different ways to them that they may turn back.(27)
فَلَولا نَصَرَهُمُ الَّذينَ اتَّخَذوا مِن دونِ اللَّهِ قُربانًا ءالِهَةً ۖ بَل ضَلّوا عَنهُم ۚ وَذٰلِكَ إِفكُهُم وَما كانوا يَفتَرونَ(28)
Why then did the gods they had taken apart from God as propitiators, not come to their aid? In fact they strayed away from them. It was all a lie what they had contrived!(28)
وَإِذ صَرَفنا إِلَيكَ نَفَرًا مِنَ الجِنِّ يَستَمِعونَ القُرءانَ فَلَمّا حَضَروهُ قالوا أَنصِتوا ۖ فَلَمّا قُضِىَ وَلَّوا إِلىٰ قَومِهِم مُنذِرينَ(29)
And (remember), when We turned a company of jinns towards you to listen to the Qur'an, they arrived when it was being recited, and they said: "Keep silent." When it was over they came back to their people, warning them:(29)
قالوا يٰقَومَنا إِنّا سَمِعنا كِتٰبًا أُنزِلَ مِن بَعدِ موسىٰ مُصَدِّقًا لِما بَينَ يَدَيهِ يَهدى إِلَى الحَقِّ وَإِلىٰ طَريقٍ مُستَقيمٍ(30)
"O our people:" they said: "we have listened to a Book which has come down after Moses, confirming what was (sent down) before it, showing the way to the truth and a path that is straight.(30)
يٰقَومَنا أَجيبوا داعِىَ اللَّهِ وَءامِنوا بِهِ يَغفِر لَكُم مِن ذُنوبِكُم وَيُجِركُم مِن عَذابٍ أَليمٍ(31)
O our people, hearken to the summoner of God, and believe in him, so that He may forgive you your sins and save you from a painful doom.(31)
وَمَن لا يُجِب داعِىَ اللَّهِ فَلَيسَ بِمُعجِزٍ فِى الأَرضِ وَلَيسَ لَهُ مِن دونِهِ أَولِياءُ ۚ أُولٰئِكَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(32)
He who does not listen to the summoner of God cannot weaken (the power of) God on earth, nor will he have protectors other than Him. They are clearly in the wrong."(32)
أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذى خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ وَلَم يَعىَ بِخَلقِهِنَّ بِقٰدِرٍ عَلىٰ أَن يُحۦِىَ المَوتىٰ ۚ بَلىٰ إِنَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ شَيءٍ قَديرٌ(33)
Do they not realise that God who created the heavens and the earth, and did not tire creating them, is able to bring the dead to life? And why not? He has the power over everything.(33)
وَيَومَ يُعرَضُ الَّذينَ كَفَروا عَلَى النّارِ أَلَيسَ هٰذا بِالحَقِّ ۖ قالوا بَلىٰ وَرَبِّنا ۚ قالَ فَذوقُوا العَذابَ بِما كُنتُم تَكفُرونَ(34)
The day the unbelievers will be stood before the Fire, (they will be asked:) "Is this not the reality?" They will answer: "In truth, by our Lord!" It will be said: "Then taste the torment of what you had denied."(34)
فَاصبِر كَما صَبَرَ أُولُوا العَزمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَلا تَستَعجِل لَهُم ۚ كَأَنَّهُم يَومَ يَرَونَ ما يوعَدونَ لَم يَلبَثوا إِلّا ساعَةً مِن نَهارٍ ۚ بَلٰغٌ ۚ فَهَل يُهلَكُ إِلَّا القَومُ الفٰسِقونَ(35)
So bear with patience, as the apostles who were constant, bore; and do not be hasty (in demanding punishment) for them. On the day they see what they had been foretold, (they will realise) that they did not stay in the world but only an hour of the day. This is the message to be conveyed: Shall any perish but the ungodly?(35)
