بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
HA MIM.(1)
وَالكِتٰبِ المُبينِ(2)
I call to witness the lucent Book,(2)
إِنّا جَعَلنٰهُ قُرءٰنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ(3)
That We made it a distinctly lucid Qur'an that you may understand.(3)
وَإِنَّهُ فى أُمِّ الكِتٰبِ لَدَينا لَعَلِىٌّ حَكيمٌ(4)
It is inscribed in the original Book (of Books) with Us, sublime, dispenser of (all) laws.(4)
أَفَنَضرِبُ عَنكُمُ الذِّكرَ صَفحًا أَن كُنتُم قَومًا مُسرِفينَ(5)
Should We have withdrawn the Reminder from you as you are a people who exceed the bounds?(5)
وَكَم أَرسَلنا مِن نَبِىٍّ فِى الأَوَّلينَ(6)
Many a prophet had We sent to the earlier communities,(6)
وَما يَأتيهِم مِن نَبِىٍّ إِلّا كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(7)
But never did a prophet come at whom they did not scoff.(7)
فَأَهلَكنا أَشَدَّ مِنهُم بَطشًا وَمَضىٰ مَثَلُ الأَوَّلينَ(8)
So We destroyed far more powerful (nations) than they. The example of earlier people is there.(8)
وَلَئِن سَأَلتَهُم مَن خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ لَيَقولُنَّ خَلَقَهُنَّ العَزيزُ العَليمُ(9)
If you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will answer: "The Mighty and All-knowing created them,"(9)
الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الأَرضَ مَهدًا وَجَعَلَ لَكُم فيها سُبُلًا لَعَلَّكُم تَهتَدونَ(10)
He who made the earth a bed for you, and laid out tracks upon it so that you may find the way;(10)
وَالَّذى نَزَّلَ مِنَ السَّماءِ ماءً بِقَدَرٍ فَأَنشَرنا بِهِ بَلدَةً مَيتًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ تُخرَجونَ(11)
Who sent down water in due measure from the sky, then quickened a region that was dead -- So shall We bring you forth --(11)
وَالَّذى خَلَقَ الأَزوٰجَ كُلَّها وَجَعَلَ لَكُم مِنَ الفُلكِ وَالأَنعٰمِ ما تَركَبونَ(12)
He who created pairs of everything, and fashioned for you boats and beasts on which you ride,(12)
لِتَستَوۥا عَلىٰ ظُهورِهِ ثُمَّ تَذكُروا نِعمَةَ رَبِّكُم إِذَا استَوَيتُم عَلَيهِ وَتَقولوا سُبحٰنَ الَّذى سَخَّرَ لَنا هٰذا وَما كُنّا لَهُ مُقرِنينَ(13)
So that when you sit astride of them and think of the bounties of your Lord, you may say: "All glory to Him who subjugated these for us. We were incapable of doing so.(13)
وَإِنّا إِلىٰ رَبِّنا لَمُنقَلِبونَ(14)
Surely we have to go back to our Lord."(14)
وَجَعَلوا لَهُ مِن عِبادِهِ جُزءًا ۚ إِنَّ الإِنسٰنَ لَكَفورٌ مُبينٌ(15)
Yet they make some of His creatures His offspring! Man is surely most ungrateful.(15)
أَمِ اتَّخَذَ مِمّا يَخلُقُ بَناتٍ وَأَصفىٰكُم بِالبَنينَ(16)
Or has He taken from those He has created daughters for Himself, and assigned sons to you?(16)
وَإِذا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُم بِما ضَرَبَ لِلرَّحمٰنِ مَثَلًا ظَلَّ وَجهُهُ مُسوَدًّا وَهُوَ كَظيمٌ(17)
Yet when news of (a daughter) they had reserved for Ar-Rahman comes to one of them, his face is blackened (with shame), and he grieves in silence inwardly.(17)
أَوَمَن يُنَشَّؤُا۟ فِى الحِليَةِ وَهُوَ فِى الخِصامِ غَيرُ مُبينٍ(18)
Can one who has been raised on ornaments and cannot present her case coolly in a dispute (be associated with God?)(18)
وَجَعَلُوا المَلٰئِكَةَ الَّذينَ هُم عِبٰدُ الرَّحمٰنِ إِنٰثًا ۚ أَشَهِدوا خَلقَهُم ۚ سَتُكتَبُ شَهٰدَتُهُم وَيُسـَٔلونَ(19)
Yet they have made the angels, who are creatures of Ar-Rahman, females. Did they witness their creation? We shall record their testimony, and they will be interrogated.(19)
وَقالوا لَو شاءَ الرَّحمٰنُ ما عَبَدنٰهُم ۗ ما لَهُم بِذٰلِكَ مِن عِلمٍ ۖ إِن هُم إِلّا يَخرُصونَ(20)
Yet they say: "If Ar-Rahman had so pleased we would not have worshipped them." They have no knowledge of it in the least. They only make up lies.(20)
أَم ءاتَينٰهُم كِتٰبًا مِن قَبلِهِ فَهُم بِهِ مُستَمسِكونَ(21)
Did We give them a Scripture before this to which they are holding fast?(21)
بَل قالوا إِنّا وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا عَلىٰ أُمَّةٍ وَإِنّا عَلىٰ ءاثٰرِهِم مُهتَدونَ(22)
In fact they say: "We found our fathers following a certain way, and are guided by their footprints."(22)
وَكَذٰلِكَ ما أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ فى قَريَةٍ مِن نَذيرٍ إِلّا قالَ مُترَفوها إِنّا وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا عَلىٰ أُمَّةٍ وَإِنّا عَلىٰ ءاثٰرِهِم مُقتَدونَ(23)
Thus, We never sent an admonisher to a settlement before you but the decadent among them said. "We found our fathers following this way, and we are walking in their footsteps."(23)
۞ قٰلَ أَوَلَو جِئتُكُم بِأَهدىٰ مِمّا وَجَدتُم عَلَيهِ ءاباءَكُم ۖ قالوا إِنّا بِما أُرسِلتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(24)
"Even if I bring you a better guidance," he rejoined, "than the one you found your fathers on?" Still they said: "We do not believe in what you have brought."(24)
فَانتَقَمنا مِنهُم ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُكَذِّبينَ(25)
Then We punished them. So look at the fate of those who denied.(25)
وَإِذ قالَ إِبرٰهيمُ لِأَبيهِ وَقَومِهِ إِنَّنى بَراءٌ مِمّا تَعبُدونَ(26)
When Abraham said to his father and his people: "I am rid of what you worship(26)
إِلَّا الَّذى فَطَرَنى فَإِنَّهُ سَيَهدينِ(27)
Other than Him who created me. He will show me the right way."(27)
وَجَعَلَها كَلِمَةً باقِيَةً فى عَقِبِهِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(28)
This is the legacy he left to his descendants so that they may turn (to God).(28)
بَل مَتَّعتُ هٰؤُلاءِ وَءاباءَهُم حَتّىٰ جاءَهُمُ الحَقُّ وَرَسولٌ مُبينٌ(29)
In fact, I allowed them and their fathers to enjoy this life till the truth, and the apostle preaching it lucidly, came to them.(29)
وَلَمّا جاءَهُمُ الحَقُّ قالوا هٰذا سِحرٌ وَإِنّا بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(30)
Yet when the truth had come to them, they said: "This is sorcery. We shall never believe in it."(30)
وَقالوا لَولا نُزِّلَ هٰذَا القُرءانُ عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ مِنَ القَريَتَينِ عَظيمٍ(31)
They also said: "Why was this Qur'an not sent down to some great man of the two cities?"(31)
أَهُم يَقسِمونَ رَحمَتَ رَبِّكَ ۚ نَحنُ قَسَمنا بَينَهُم مَعيشَتَهُم فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۚ وَرَفَعنا بَعضَهُم فَوقَ بَعضٍ دَرَجٰتٍ لِيَتَّخِذَ بَعضُهُم بَعضًا سُخرِيًّا ۗ وَرَحمَتُ رَبِّكَ خَيرٌ مِمّا يَجمَعونَ(32)
Are they the ones who dispense the favour of your Lord? It is He who apportions the means of livelihood among them in this world, and raises some in position over the others to make some others submissive. The favours of your Lord are better than what they amass.(32)
وَلَولا أَن يَكونَ النّاسُ أُمَّةً وٰحِدَةً لَجَعَلنا لِمَن يَكفُرُ بِالرَّحمٰنِ لِبُيوتِهِم سُقُفًا مِن فِضَّةٍ وَمَعارِجَ عَلَيها يَظهَرونَ(33)
Had it not been that all people would become one community (of unbelievers), We might have given those who disbelieve in Ar-Rahman roofs of silver for their dwellings and (silver) stairs for mounting,(33)
وَلِبُيوتِهِم أَبوٰبًا وَسُرُرًا عَلَيها يَتَّكِـٔونَ(34)
And doors (of silver) for their houses, (silver) couches for reclining,(34)
وَزُخرُفًا ۚ وَإِن كُلُّ ذٰلِكَ لَمّا مَتٰعُ الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۚ وَالءاخِرَةُ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلمُتَّقينَ(35)
And ornaments of gold. But all this would have been nothing but the vanity of this world. The Hereafter with your Lord is for those who take heed for themselves and follow the straight path.(35)
وَمَن يَعشُ عَن ذِكرِ الرَّحمٰنِ نُقَيِّض لَهُ شَيطٰنًا فَهُوَ لَهُ قَرينٌ(36)
We shall attach to him who goes blind to the remembrance of Ar-Rahman a devil as companion, --(36)
وَإِنَّهُم لَيَصُدّونَهُم عَنِ السَّبيلِ وَيَحسَبونَ أَنَّهُم مُهتَدونَ(37)
Surely the (devils) obstruct them from the path, though they think they are rightly guided, --(37)
حَتّىٰ إِذا جاءَنا قالَ يٰلَيتَ بَينى وَبَينَكَ بُعدَ المَشرِقَينِ فَبِئسَ القَرينُ(38)
Until when he comes before Us he will say (to the devil): "Would to God there was a distance of the East and West between you and me, for you were an evil companion!"(38)
وَلَن يَنفَعَكُمُ اليَومَ إِذ ظَلَمتُم أَنَّكُم فِى العَذابِ مُشتَرِكونَ(39)
But nothing will avail you on that day, for you were unjust, and you will be partners in the punishment.(39)
أَفَأَنتَ تُسمِعُ الصُّمَّ أَو تَهدِى العُمىَ وَمَن كانَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(40)
Can you make the deaf to hear, or show the blind, and those lost in clear error, the way?(40)
فَإِمّا نَذهَبَنَّ بِكَ فَإِنّا مِنهُم مُنتَقِمونَ(41)
We shall punish them whether We take you away,(41)
أَو نُرِيَنَّكَ الَّذى وَعَدنٰهُم فَإِنّا عَلَيهِم مُقتَدِرونَ(42)
Or show you some of what We have promised them. They are certainly well within Our power.(42)
فَاستَمسِك بِالَّذى أوحِىَ إِلَيكَ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلىٰ صِرٰطٍ مُستَقيمٍ(43)
So hold fast to what has been revealed to you. You are truly on the right path.(43)
وَإِنَّهُ لَذِكرٌ لَكَ وَلِقَومِكَ ۖ وَسَوفَ تُسـَٔلونَ(44)
It is a (source) of greatness for you and your people. You will surely be questioned about it.(44)
وَسـَٔل مَن أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ مِن رُسُلِنا أَجَعَلنا مِن دونِ الرَّحمٰنِ ءالِهَةً يُعبَدونَ(45)
Inquire of apostles We had sent before you if We appointed gods to be worshipped other than Ar-Rahman.(45)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِ فَقالَ إِنّى رَسولُ رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(46)
We sent Moses with Our signs to the Pharaoh and his nobles. He said: "I have been sent by the Lord of all the worlds."(46)
فَلَمّا جاءَهُم بِـٔايٰتِنا إِذا هُم مِنها يَضحَكونَ(47)
But when he brought to them Our signs they laughed at them,(47)
وَما نُريهِم مِن ءايَةٍ إِلّا هِىَ أَكبَرُ مِن أُختِها ۖ وَأَخَذنٰهُم بِالعَذابِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(48)
(Even though) each miracle that We showed them was greater than the other. So We seized them with chastisement so that they may turn back.(48)
وَقالوا يٰأَيُّهَ السّاحِرُ ادعُ لَنا رَبَّكَ بِما عَهِدَ عِندَكَ إِنَّنا لَمُهتَدونَ(49)
But they said: "O sorcerer, call on your Lord for us in accordance with the compact He has made with you. We shall certainly come to guidance."(49)
فَلَمّا كَشَفنا عَنهُمُ العَذابَ إِذا هُم يَنكُثونَ(50)
Yet no sooner did We take away the affliction from them than they broke their pledge.(50)
وَنادىٰ فِرعَونُ فى قَومِهِ قالَ يٰقَومِ أَلَيسَ لى مُلكُ مِصرَ وَهٰذِهِ الأَنهٰرُ تَجرى مِن تَحتى ۖ أَفَلا تُبصِرونَ(51)
And the Pharaoh said to his people: "O people, is not mine the kingdom of Egypt and these rivers that flow at my feet? Can you still not comprehend?(51)
أَم أَنا۠ خَيرٌ مِن هٰذَا الَّذى هُوَ مَهينٌ وَلا يَكادُ يُبينُ(52)
Am I (not) better than him who is contemptible, and cannot even express himself clearly?(52)
فَلَولا أُلقِىَ عَلَيهِ أَسوِرَةٌ مِن ذَهَبٍ أَو جاءَ مَعَهُ المَلٰئِكَةُ مُقتَرِنينَ(53)
Why were then no bracelets of gold shed upon him from above, or angels sent down as a retinue with him?"(53)
فَاستَخَفَّ قَومَهُ فَأَطاعوهُ ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومًا فٰسِقينَ(54)
Thus he made light (of the matter) to his people, and they obeyed him. They were certainly wicked.(54)
فَلَمّا ءاسَفونَا انتَقَمنا مِنهُم فَأَغرَقنٰهُم أَجمَعينَ(55)
But when they roused Our anger We inflicted retributive punishment and drowned them all,(55)
فَجَعَلنٰهُم سَلَفًا وَمَثَلًا لِلءاخِرينَ(56)
And made them a precedent and example for posterity.(56)
۞ وَلَمّا ضُرِبَ ابنُ مَريَمَ مَثَلًا إِذا قَومُكَ مِنهُ يَصِدّونَ(57)
When the example of Mary's son is quoted before them, your people cry out at it,(57)
وَقالوا ءَأٰلِهَتُنا خَيرٌ أَم هُوَ ۚ ما ضَرَبوهُ لَكَ إِلّا جَدَلًا ۚ بَل هُم قَومٌ خَصِمونَ(58)
And say: "Are our deities better or he?" They say this only for disputing. Surely they are a contentious people.(58)
إِن هُوَ إِلّا عَبدٌ أَنعَمنا عَلَيهِ وَجَعَلنٰهُ مَثَلًا لِبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(59)
(Jesus) was only a creature whom We favoured and made an example for the children of Israel.(59)
وَلَو نَشاءُ لَجَعَلنا مِنكُم مَلٰئِكَةً فِى الأَرضِ يَخلُفونَ(60)
If We pleased We could have put angels in place of you as trustees on the earth.(60)
وَإِنَّهُ لَعِلمٌ لِلسّاعَةِ فَلا تَمتَرُنَّ بِها وَاتَّبِعونِ ۚ هٰذا صِرٰطٌ مُستَقيمٌ(61)
He is certainly the sign of the Hour (of change). So have no doubt about it, and listen to me. This is the straight path.(61)
وَلا يَصُدَّنَّكُمُ الشَّيطٰنُ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَكُم عَدُوٌّ مُبينٌ(62)
Let not Satan misdirect you. He is your open enemy.(62)
وَلَمّا جاءَ عيسىٰ بِالبَيِّنٰتِ قالَ قَد جِئتُكُم بِالحِكمَةِ وَلِأُبَيِّنَ لَكُم بَعضَ الَّذى تَختَلِفونَ فيهِ ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطيعونِ(63)
When Jesus came with the signs, he said: "I have come to you with authority, and to explain some thing about which you are at variance. So fear God, and follow me.(63)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ رَبّى وَرَبُّكُم فَاعبُدوهُ ۚ هٰذا صِرٰطٌ مُستَقيمٌ(64)
Verily God is my Lord and your Lord; so worship Him. This is the straight path."(64)
فَاختَلَفَ الأَحزابُ مِن بَينِهِم ۖ فَوَيلٌ لِلَّذينَ ظَلَموا مِن عَذابِ يَومٍ أَليمٍ(65)
But the factions differed among themselves. Woe alas to the sinners for the torment of the grievous Day!(65)
هَل يَنظُرونَ إِلَّا السّاعَةَ أَن تَأتِيَهُم بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(66)
Are they waiting (for any thing) but the Hour (of Doom) which would descend upon them suddenly, and catch them unawares?(66)
الأَخِلّاءُ يَومَئِذٍ بَعضُهُم لِبَعضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا المُتَّقينَ(67)
Friends will turn into enemies on that day, except those who fear and follow the straight path.(67)
يٰعِبادِ لا خَوفٌ عَلَيكُمُ اليَومَ وَلا أَنتُم تَحزَنونَ(68)
O My creatures, there will be no fear or regret(68)
الَّذينَ ءامَنوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَكانوا مُسلِمينَ(69)
For (those of) you on that day who believed in My revelations and submitted.(69)
ادخُلُوا الجَنَّةَ أَنتُم وَأَزوٰجُكُم تُحبَرونَ(70)
(You will) enter the garden, you and your spouses, and be glad."(70)
يُطافُ عَلَيهِم بِصِحافٍ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَأَكوابٍ ۖ وَفيها ما تَشتَهيهِ الأَنفُسُ وَتَلَذُّ الأَعيُنُ ۖ وَأَنتُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(71)
Golden platters and goblets will be passed around, and everything the heart desires and pleases the eye will be there, where you will abide for ever.(71)
وَتِلكَ الجَنَّةُ الَّتى أورِثتُموها بِما كُنتُم تَعمَلونَ(72)
This is the Paradise you will inherit (as meed) for your deeds.(72)
لَكُم فيها فٰكِهَةٌ كَثيرَةٌ مِنها تَأكُلونَ(73)
You will have fruits in abundance there to eat.(73)
إِنَّ المُجرِمينَ فى عَذابِ جَهَنَّمَ خٰلِدونَ(74)
The sinners will certainly dwell for ever in the torment of Hell.(74)
لا يُفَتَّرُ عَنهُم وَهُم فيهِ مُبلِسونَ(75)
It will not decrease for them; dumb with despair they will stay in it.(75)
وَما ظَلَمنٰهُم وَلٰكِن كانوا هُمُ الظّٰلِمينَ(76)
We did not wrong them, they wronged themselves.(76)
وَنادَوا يٰمٰلِكُ لِيَقضِ عَلَينا رَبُّكَ ۖ قالَ إِنَّكُم مٰكِثونَ(77)
They will call (to the keeper of Hell-gate): "O Malik, let your Lord decide our fate." He will answer: "You are to stay."(77)
لَقَد جِئنٰكُم بِالحَقِّ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَكُم لِلحَقِّ كٰرِهونَ(78)
We have brought to you the truth, but most of you despise the truth.(78)
أَم أَبرَموا أَمرًا فَإِنّا مُبرِمونَ(79)
Have they settled upon a plan? We shall also settle on one.(79)
أَم يَحسَبونَ أَنّا لا نَسمَعُ سِرَّهُم وَنَجوىٰهُم ۚ بَلىٰ وَرُسُلُنا لَدَيهِم يَكتُبونَ(80)
Or do they think We do not hear their secrecies and stealthy consultations? In fact, Our messengers who attend them record everything.(80)
قُل إِن كانَ لِلرَّحمٰنِ وَلَدٌ فَأَنا۠ أَوَّلُ العٰبِدينَ(81)
Say: "If Ar-Rahman had a son I would have been the first of worshippers."(81)
سُبحٰنَ رَبِّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ رَبِّ العَرشِ عَمّا يَصِفونَ(82)
All too glorious is He, Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of all power, for what they ascribe to Him(82)
فَذَرهُم يَخوضوا وَيَلعَبوا حَتّىٰ يُلٰقوا يَومَهُمُ الَّذى يوعَدونَ(83)
Leave them to their vain discoursing and horse-play till they come to meet their promised day (of reckoning).(83)
وَهُوَ الَّذى فِى السَّماءِ إِلٰهٌ وَفِى الأَرضِ إِلٰهٌ ۚ وَهُوَ الحَكيمُ العَليمُ(84)
He is God in heaven and God on earth, and He is all-wise and all-knowing.(84)
وَتَبارَكَ الَّذى لَهُ مُلكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَما بَينَهُما وَعِندَهُ عِلمُ السّاعَةِ وَإِلَيهِ تُرجَعونَ(85)
Blessed be He, who holds the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and all that lies between them. He alone has knowledge of the Hour, and to Him will you return.(85)
وَلا يَملِكُ الَّذينَ يَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ الشَّفٰعَةَ إِلّا مَن شَهِدَ بِالحَقِّ وَهُم يَعلَمونَ(86)
Those they invoke apart from Him have no power of intercession, except those who testify to the truth and have knowledge.(86)
وَلَئِن سَأَلتَهُم مَن خَلَقَهُم لَيَقولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۖ فَأَنّىٰ يُؤفَكونَ(87)
If you ask them who created them, they will answer: "God." How then can they turn away?(87)
وَقيلِهِ يٰرَبِّ إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ قَومٌ لا يُؤمِنونَ(88)
And (the Prophet) will say: "O Lord, these are certainly a people who do not believe."(88)
فَاصفَح عَنهُم وَقُل سَلٰمٌ ۚ فَسَوفَ يَعلَمونَ(89)
Turn away from them and say: "Peace." They will come to know soon.(89)
