بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic Language – Allah, and to whomever he reveals, know their precise meanings.)(1)
تَنزيلُ الكِتٰبِ مِنَ اللَّهِ العَزيزِ العَليمِ(2)
The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Most Honourable, the All Knowing.(2)
غافِرِ الذَّنبِ وَقابِلِ التَّوبِ شَديدِ العِقابِ ذِى الطَّولِ ۖ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ ۖ إِلَيهِ المَصيرُ(3)
The Forgiver of sin, and the Most Acceptor of Repentance, the Severe in Punishing, the Greatly Rewarding; there is no God except Him; towards Him only is the return.(3)
ما يُجٰدِلُ فى ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ إِلَّا الَّذينَ كَفَروا فَلا يَغرُركَ تَقَلُّبُهُم فِى البِلٰدِ(4)
None except the disbelievers dispute the signs of Allah, therefore do not let their free movements in the land deceive you.(4)
كَذَّبَت قَبلَهُم قَومُ نوحٍ وَالأَحزابُ مِن بَعدِهِم ۖ وَهَمَّت كُلُّ أُمَّةٍ بِرَسولِهِم لِيَأخُذوهُ ۖ وَجٰدَلوا بِالبٰطِلِ لِيُدحِضوا بِهِ الحَقَّ فَأَخَذتُهُم ۖ فَكَيفَ كانَ عِقابِ(5)
Before them, the people of Nooh and the groups after them had denied; and every nation intended to apprehend its Noble Messenger, and they fought along with falsehood to avert the truth, so I seized them; so how did My punishment turn out?(5)
وَكَذٰلِكَ حَقَّت كَلِمَتُ رَبِّكَ عَلَى الَّذينَ كَفَروا أَنَّهُم أَصحٰبُ النّارِ(6)
And this is how the Word of your Lord has proved true upon the disbelievers that they are people of the hell.(6)
الَّذينَ يَحمِلونَ العَرشَ وَمَن حَولَهُ يُسَبِّحونَ بِحَمدِ رَبِّهِم وَيُؤمِنونَ بِهِ وَيَستَغفِرونَ لِلَّذينَ ءامَنوا رَبَّنا وَسِعتَ كُلَّ شَيءٍ رَحمَةً وَعِلمًا فَاغفِر لِلَّذينَ تابوا وَاتَّبَعوا سَبيلَكَ وَقِهِم عَذابَ الجَحيمِ(7)
Those* who bear the Throne, and those who are around it, say the Purity of their Lord while praising Him, and they believe in Him and seek forgiveness for the believers; “O Our Lord! Your mercy and knowledge encompass all things, therefore forgive those who repented and followed Your path, and save them from the punishment of hell.” (* The angels.)(7)
رَبَّنا وَأَدخِلهُم جَنّٰتِ عَدنٍ الَّتى وَعَدتَهُم وَمَن صَلَحَ مِن ءابائِهِم وَأَزوٰجِهِم وَذُرِّيّٰتِهِم ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ العَزيزُ الحَكيمُ(8)
“O Our Lord! And admit them into the Gardens of everlasting stay which you have promised them, and those who are virtuous among their forefathers and their wives and their offspring; indeed You only are the Most Honourable, the Wise.”(8)
وَقِهِمُ السَّيِّـٔاتِ ۚ وَمَن تَقِ السَّيِّـٔاتِ يَومَئِذٍ فَقَد رَحِمتَهُ ۚ وَذٰلِكَ هُوَ الفَوزُ العَظيمُ(9)
“And save them from the evil consequences of sins; and whomever You save from the evil consequences of sins on that Day – so You have indeed had mercy upon him; and this only is the greatest success.”(9)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ كَفَروا يُنادَونَ لَمَقتُ اللَّهِ أَكبَرُ مِن مَقتِكُم أَنفُسَكُم إِذ تُدعَونَ إِلَى الإيمٰنِ فَتَكفُرونَ(10)
The disbelievers will indeed be called out to – “Indeed Allah’s disgust with you is greater than your own abhorrence of yourselves, whereas you used to deny when you were called towards the faith!”(10)
قالوا رَبَّنا أَمَتَّنَا اثنَتَينِ وَأَحيَيتَنَا اثنَتَينِ فَاعتَرَفنا بِذُنوبِنا فَهَل إِلىٰ خُروجٍ مِن سَبيلٍ(11)
They will say, “O Our Lord! Twice You have given us death and twice You have given us life* – we now confess to our sins – so is there a way out of the fire?” (From nothingness to life in this world, to death and then Resurrection.)(11)
ذٰلِكُم بِأَنَّهُ إِذا دُعِىَ اللَّهُ وَحدَهُ كَفَرتُم ۖ وَإِن يُشرَك بِهِ تُؤمِنوا ۚ فَالحُكمُ لِلَّهِ العَلِىِّ الكَبيرِ(12)
“This has occurred because when Allah the One was prayed to, you used to disbelieve; and when a partner was ascribed with Him, you used to believe; so the command is only for Allah, the Supreme, the Great.”(12)
هُوَ الَّذى يُريكُم ءايٰتِهِ وَيُنَزِّلُ لَكُم مِنَ السَّماءِ رِزقًا ۚ وَما يَتَذَكَّرُ إِلّا مَن يُنيبُ(13)
It is He Who shows you His signs, and sends down sustenance from the sky for you; and none accept guidance except those who incline (towards Him).(13)
فَادعُوا اللَّهَ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ وَلَو كَرِهَ الكٰفِرونَ(14)
Therefore worship Allah, as His sincere bondmen even if the disbelievers get annoyed.(14)
رَفيعُ الدَّرَجٰتِ ذُو العَرشِ يُلقِى الرّوحَ مِن أَمرِهِ عَلىٰ مَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ لِيُنذِرَ يَومَ التَّلاقِ(15)
Bestower of High Ranks, Owner of the Throne; it is He Who instils the spirit of faith into the one He wills among His bondmen, in order that he may warn of the Day of Meeting. –(15)
يَومَ هُم بٰرِزونَ ۖ لا يَخفىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنهُم شَيءٌ ۚ لِمَنِ المُلكُ اليَومَ ۖ لِلَّهِ الوٰحِدِ القَهّارِ(16)
A day when they will be fully exposed; nothing from their affairs will be hidden from Allah; “For whom is the kingship this day? For Allah, the One, the All Dominant.”(16)
اليَومَ تُجزىٰ كُلُّ نَفسٍ بِما كَسَبَت ۚ لا ظُلمَ اليَومَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ(17)
This day each soul will be repaid for what it has earned; no one will be wronged this day; indeed Allah is Swift At Taking Account.(17)
وَأَنذِرهُم يَومَ الءازِفَةِ إِذِ القُلوبُ لَدَى الحَناجِرِ كٰظِمينَ ۚ ما لِلظّٰلِمينَ مِن حَميمٍ وَلا شَفيعٍ يُطاعُ(18)
And warn them of the day of impending calamity, when hearts will rise up to the throats filled with grief; and the disbelievers will have neither any friend nor any intercessor who will be obeyed. (Intercession will be accepted only for the Muslims, not for the disbelievers)(18)
يَعلَمُ خائِنَةَ الأَعيُنِ وَما تُخفِى الصُّدورُ(19)
Allah well knows the covert glance and all what lies hidden in the hearts.(19)
وَاللَّهُ يَقضى بِالحَقِّ ۖ وَالَّذينَ يَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ لا يَقضونَ بِشَيءٍ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ(20)
And Allah renders the true judgement; and those whom they worship instead of Him do not judge at all; indeed Allah only, is the All Hearing, the All Seeing.(20)
۞ أَوَلَم يَسيروا فِى الأَرضِ فَيَنظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ الَّذينَ كانوا مِن قَبلِهِم ۚ كانوا هُم أَشَدَّ مِنهُم قُوَّةً وَءاثارًا فِى الأَرضِ فَأَخَذَهُمُ اللَّهُ بِذُنوبِهِم وَما كانَ لَهُم مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن واقٍ(21)
So did they not travel in the land in order to see what sort of fate befell those before them? Their strength and the signs they left behind in the earth, exceeded them – so Allah seized them on account of their sins, and they had no one to save them from Allah.(21)
ذٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُم كانَت تَأتيهِم رُسُلُهُم بِالبَيِّنٰتِ فَكَفَروا فَأَخَذَهُمُ اللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّهُ قَوِىٌّ شَديدُ العِقابِ(22)
This occurred because their Noble Messengers came to them with clear signs, thereupon they used to disbelieve, so Allah seized them; indeed Allah is All Powerful, Severe in Punishment.(22)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا وَسُلطٰنٍ مُبينٍ(23)
And indeed We sent Moosa with Our signs and a clear proof.(23)
إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَهٰمٰنَ وَقٰرونَ فَقالوا سٰحِرٌ كَذّابٌ(24)
Towards Firaun and Haman and Qaroon – in response they said, “(He is) a magician, a big liar!”(24)
فَلَمّا جاءَهُم بِالحَقِّ مِن عِندِنا قالُوا اقتُلوا أَبناءَ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا مَعَهُ وَاستَحيوا نِساءَهُم ۚ وَما كَيدُ الكٰفِرينَ إِلّا فى ضَلٰلٍ(25)
So when he brought the truth from Our presence to them, they said, “Kill the sons of those who believe in him, and keep their women alive”; and the evil scheme of the disbelievers only keeps wandering astray.(25)
وَقالَ فِرعَونُ ذَرونى أَقتُل موسىٰ وَليَدعُ رَبَّهُ ۖ إِنّى أَخافُ أَن يُبَدِّلَ دينَكُم أَو أَن يُظهِرَ فِى الأَرضِ الفَسادَ(26)
And said Firaun, “Allow me to kill Moosa and let him pray to his Lord; I fear that he will change your religion or cause chaos in the land!”(26)
وَقالَ موسىٰ إِنّى عُذتُ بِرَبّى وَرَبِّكُم مِن كُلِّ مُتَكَبِّرٍ لا يُؤمِنُ بِيَومِ الحِسابِ(27)
Said Moosa, “I seek the refuge of mine and your Lord, from every haughty person who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning.”(27)
وَقالَ رَجُلٌ مُؤمِنٌ مِن ءالِ فِرعَونَ يَكتُمُ إيمٰنَهُ أَتَقتُلونَ رَجُلًا أَن يَقولَ رَبِّىَ اللَّهُ وَقَد جاءَكُم بِالبَيِّنٰتِ مِن رَبِّكُم ۖ وَإِن يَكُ كٰذِبًا فَعَلَيهِ كَذِبُهُ ۖ وَإِن يَكُ صادِقًا يُصِبكُم بَعضُ الَّذى يَعِدُكُم ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهدى مَن هُوَ مُسرِفٌ كَذّابٌ(28)
And said a Muslim man from the people of Firaun, who used to hide his faith, “What! You want to kill a man just because he says, ‘Allah is my Lord’ whereas he has indeed brought clear signs to you from your Lord? And supposedly if he is speaking wrongly, then the calamity of wrongful speech is upon him; and if he is truthful, then part of what he promises you will reach you; indeed Allah does not guide any transgressor, excessive liar.”(28)
يٰقَومِ لَكُمُ المُلكُ اليَومَ ظٰهِرينَ فِى الأَرضِ فَمَن يَنصُرُنا مِن بَأسِ اللَّهِ إِن جاءَنا ۚ قالَ فِرعَونُ ما أُريكُم إِلّا ما أَرىٰ وَما أَهديكُم إِلّا سَبيلَ الرَّشادِ(29)
“O my people! You now rule the earth, dominant; so who will save us from Allah’s punishment if it comes upon us?” Said Firaun, “I only explain to you what I think is correct, and I show you only the right path.”(29)
وَقالَ الَّذى ءامَنَ يٰقَومِ إِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم مِثلَ يَومِ الأَحزابِ(30)
And the believer said, “O my people! I fear for you a day similar to that of the earlier groups!”(30)
مِثلَ دَأبِ قَومِ نوحٍ وَعادٍ وَثَمودَ وَالَّذينَ مِن بَعدِهِم ۚ وَمَا اللَّهُ يُريدُ ظُلمًا لِلعِبادِ(31)
“Like the tradition of the people of Nooh, and Aad, and Thamud and others after them; and Allah does not will injustice upon bondmen.”(31)
وَيٰقَومِ إِنّى أَخافُ عَلَيكُم يَومَ التَّنادِ(32)
“O my people! I fear for you a day on which will be a great outcry!”(32)
يَومَ تُوَلّونَ مُدبِرينَ ما لَكُم مِنَ اللَّهِ مِن عاصِمٍ ۗ وَمَن يُضلِلِ اللَّهُ فَما لَهُ مِن هادٍ(33)
“A day when you will turn back fleeing; none can save you from Allah; and whomever Allah sends astray, there is no guide for him.”(33)
وَلَقَد جاءَكُم يوسُفُ مِن قَبلُ بِالبَيِّنٰتِ فَما زِلتُم فى شَكٍّ مِمّا جاءَكُم بِهِ ۖ حَتّىٰ إِذا هَلَكَ قُلتُم لَن يَبعَثَ اللَّهُ مِن بَعدِهِ رَسولًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ يُضِلُّ اللَّهُ مَن هُوَ مُسرِفٌ مُرتابٌ(34)
“And indeed Yusuf came to you with clear signs before this, thereupon you remained doubtful concerning what he had brought; to the extent that when he died, you said, ‘Allah will surely not send any Noble Messenger after him’”; this is how Allah sends astray whoever transgresses, is doubtful. –(34)
الَّذينَ يُجٰدِلونَ فى ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ بِغَيرِ سُلطٰنٍ أَتىٰهُم ۖ كَبُرَ مَقتًا عِندَ اللَّهِ وَعِندَ الَّذينَ ءامَنوا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ يَطبَعُ اللَّهُ عَلىٰ كُلِّ قَلبِ مُتَكَبِّرٍ جَبّارٍ(35)
Those who dispute regarding the signs of Allah without any proof having come to them; how very disgusting this is, in the sight of Allah and in the sight of the believers! This is how Allah seals the entire heart of every haughty, rebellious person.(35)
وَقالَ فِرعَونُ يٰهٰمٰنُ ابنِ لى صَرحًا لَعَلّى أَبلُغُ الأَسبٰبَ(36)
And said Firaun, “O Haman! Build a high palace for me, in order that I may reach the routes.” –(36)
أَسبٰبَ السَّمٰوٰتِ فَأَطَّلِعَ إِلىٰ إِلٰهِ موسىٰ وَإِنّى لَأَظُنُّهُ كٰذِبًا ۚ وَكَذٰلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِفِرعَونَ سوءُ عَمَلِهِ وَصُدَّ عَنِ السَّبيلِ ۚ وَما كَيدُ فِرعَونَ إِلّا فى تَبابٍ(37)
“The routes of the heavens, in order to glance at the God of Moosa – and indeed I think he is a liar”; this is how the evil deeds of Firaun were made seeming good to him, and he was stopped from the path; and the evil scheme of Firaun was destined to be ruined.(37)
وَقالَ الَّذى ءامَنَ يٰقَومِ اتَّبِعونِ أَهدِكُم سَبيلَ الرَّشادِ(38)
And the believer said, “O my people! Follow me, I shall show you the way of righteousness.”(38)
يٰقَومِ إِنَّما هٰذِهِ الحَيوٰةُ الدُّنيا مَتٰعٌ وَإِنَّ الءاخِرَةَ هِىَ دارُ القَرارِ(39)
“O my people! The life of this world is just a brief usage, and indeed the next abode is one of everlasting stay.”(39)
مَن عَمِلَ سَيِّئَةً فَلا يُجزىٰ إِلّا مِثلَها ۖ وَمَن عَمِلَ صٰلِحًا مِن ذَكَرٍ أَو أُنثىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤمِنٌ فَأُولٰئِكَ يَدخُلونَ الجَنَّةَ يُرزَقونَ فيها بِغَيرِ حِسابٍ(40)
“Whoever commits an evil deed will not be repaid except to the same extent; and whoever does good deeds, whether a man or a woman, and is a Muslim, will be admitted into Paradise, in which they will receive sustenance without account.”(40)
۞ وَيٰقَومِ ما لى أَدعوكُم إِلَى النَّجوٰةِ وَتَدعونَنى إِلَى النّارِ(41)
“And O my people! What is the matter with me that I call you towards salvation whereas you call me towards hell?”(41)
تَدعونَنى لِأَكفُرَ بِاللَّهِ وَأُشرِكَ بِهِ ما لَيسَ لى بِهِ عِلمٌ وَأَنا۠ أَدعوكُم إِلَى العَزيزِ الغَفّٰرِ(42)
“You call me to disbelieve in Allah and ascribe such as partners to Him, regarding whom I do not have any knowledge – whereas I call you towards the Most Honourable, the Oft Forgiving!”(42)
لا جَرَمَ أَنَّما تَدعونَنى إِلَيهِ لَيسَ لَهُ دَعوَةٌ فِى الدُّنيا وَلا فِى الءاخِرَةِ وَأَنَّ مَرَدَّنا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَأَنَّ المُسرِفينَ هُم أَصحٰبُ النّارِ(43)
“So it is self evident that what you call me towards has no benefit being prayed to, either in this world or in the Hereafter, and that our return is towards Allah, and that the transgressors only are the people of the fire.”(43)
فَسَتَذكُرونَ ما أَقولُ لَكُم ۚ وَأُفَوِّضُ أَمرى إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَصيرٌ بِالعِبادِ(44)
“And soon the time will come when you will remember what I now say to you; and I entrust my tasks to Allah; indeed Allah sees the bondmen.”(44)
فَوَقىٰهُ اللَّهُ سَيِّـٔاتِ ما مَكَروا ۖ وَحاقَ بِـٔالِ فِرعَونَ سوءُ العَذابِ(45)
Therefore Allah saved him from the evils of their scheming, and an evil punishment enveloped the people of Firaun. –(45)
النّارُ يُعرَضونَ عَلَيها غُدُوًّا وَعَشِيًّا ۖ وَيَومَ تَقومُ السّاعَةُ أَدخِلوا ءالَ فِرعَونَ أَشَدَّ العَذابِ(46)
The fire – upon which they are presented morning and evening; and when the Last Day is established – “Put the people of Firaun into the most severe punishment.” (Punishment in the grave is proven by this verse.)(46)
وَإِذ يَتَحاجّونَ فِى النّارِ فَيَقولُ الضُّعَفٰؤُا۟ لِلَّذينَ استَكبَروا إِنّا كُنّا لَكُم تَبَعًا فَهَل أَنتُم مُغنونَ عَنّا نَصيبًا مِنَ النّارِ(47)
And when they will quarrel amongst themselves in the fire, those who were weak will say to those who sought greatness, “We were your followers, so will you reduce from us some of the punishment of the fire?”(47)
قالَ الَّذينَ استَكبَروا إِنّا كُلٌّ فيها إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَد حَكَمَ بَينَ العِبادِ(48)
Those who were proud will say, “We are all in the fire – indeed Allah has already passed the judgement among the bondmen.”(48)
وَقالَ الَّذينَ فِى النّارِ لِخَزَنَةِ جَهَنَّمَ ادعوا رَبَّكُم يُخَفِّف عَنّا يَومًا مِنَ العَذابِ(49)
And those who are in the fire said to its guards, “Pray to your Lord to decrease the punishment upon us for one day.”(49)
قالوا أَوَلَم تَكُ تَأتيكُم رُسُلُكُم بِالبَيِّنٰتِ ۖ قالوا بَلىٰ ۚ قالوا فَادعوا ۗ وَما دُعٰؤُا۟ الكٰفِرينَ إِلّا فى ضَلٰلٍ(50)
They said, “Is it not that your Noble Messengers used to come to you with clear signs?” They said, “Why not, surely yes!” They said, “Then you yourselves pray”; and the prayer of the disbelievers is nothing but astray.(50)
إِنّا لَنَنصُرُ رُسُلَنا وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا فِى الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا وَيَومَ يَقومُ الأَشهٰدُ(51)
Indeed We will surely help Our Noble Messengers, and the believers, in the life of this world and on the day when the witnesses will be standing.(51)
يَومَ لا يَنفَعُ الظّٰلِمينَ مَعذِرَتُهُم ۖ وَلَهُمُ اللَّعنَةُ وَلَهُم سوءُ الدّارِ(52)
The day on which the unjust will not gain any benefit from their excuses, and for them is the curse, and for them is the wretched home.(52)
وَلَقَد ءاتَينا موسَى الهُدىٰ وَأَورَثنا بَنى إِسرٰءيلَ الكِتٰبَ(53)
And indeed We gave Moosa the guidance, and bequeathed the Book to the Descendants of Israel.(53)
هُدًى وَذِكرىٰ لِأُولِى الأَلبٰبِ(54)
A guidance and an advice for the people of intellect.(54)
فَاصبِر إِنَّ وَعدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ وَاستَغفِر لِذَنبِكَ وَسَبِّح بِحَمدِ رَبِّكَ بِالعَشِىِّ وَالإِبكٰرِ(55)
Therefore be patient (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), undoubtedly Allah’s promise is true, and seek forgiveness for the sins of your own people, and praising your Lord, proclaim His Purity morning and evening.(55)
إِنَّ الَّذينَ يُجٰدِلونَ فى ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ بِغَيرِ سُلطٰنٍ أَتىٰهُم ۙ إِن فى صُدورِهِم إِلّا كِبرٌ ما هُم بِبٰلِغيهِ ۚ فَاستَعِذ بِاللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّميعُ البَصيرُ(56)
Those who dispute concerning the signs of Allah without any proof having come to them – in their hearts is nothing but a craving for greatness which they shall never achieve; therefore seek the refuge of Allah; indeed He only is the All Hearing, the All Seeing.(56)
لَخَلقُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ أَكبَرُ مِن خَلقِ النّاسِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَعلَمونَ(57)
Certainly the creation of the heavens and the earth is far greater than the creation of men, but most people do not know.(57)
وَما يَستَوِى الأَعمىٰ وَالبَصيرُ وَالَّذينَ ءامَنوا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَلَا المُسيءُ ۚ قَليلًا ما تَتَذَكَّرونَ(58)
And the blind and the sighted are not equal – and neither are the believers who perform good deeds and the wicked equal; how very little do you ponder!(58)
إِنَّ السّاعَةَ لَءاتِيَةٌ لا رَيبَ فيها وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يُؤمِنونَ(59)
Indeed the Last Day will surely come, there is no doubt in it – but most people do not accept faith.(59)
وَقالَ رَبُّكُمُ ادعونى أَستَجِب لَكُم ۚ إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَستَكبِرونَ عَن عِبادَتى سَيَدخُلونَ جَهَنَّمَ داخِرينَ(60)
And your Lord proclaimed, “Pray to Me, I will accept; indeed those who stay conceited towards worshipping Me, will enter hell in disgrace."(60)
اللَّهُ الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الَّيلَ لِتَسكُنوا فيهِ وَالنَّهارَ مُبصِرًا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَذو فَضلٍ عَلَى النّاسِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَ النّاسِ لا يَشكُرونَ(61)
It is Allah Who created night for you so that you may gain rest in it, and the day giving sight; indeed Allah is Most Munificent towards mankind, but most people do not give thanks.(61)
ذٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبُّكُم خٰلِقُ كُلِّ شَيءٍ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ ۖ فَأَنّىٰ تُؤفَكونَ(62)
Such is Allah, your Lord, the Creator of all things; there is no God except Him; so where are you reverting?(62)
كَذٰلِكَ يُؤفَكُ الَّذينَ كانوا بِـٔايٰتِ اللَّهِ يَجحَدونَ(63)
This is how those who deny the signs of Allah go reverting.(63)
اللَّهُ الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الأَرضَ قَرارًا وَالسَّماءَ بِناءً وَصَوَّرَكُم فَأَحسَنَ صُوَرَكُم وَرَزَقَكُم مِنَ الطَّيِّبٰتِ ۚ ذٰلِكُمُ اللَّهُ رَبُّكُم ۖ فَتَبارَكَ اللَّهُ رَبُّ العٰلَمينَ(64)
It is Allah Who made for you the earth your resting place and the sky a canopy, and moulded you so gave you the best shape, and gave you pure things for sustenance; such is Allah, your Lord; so Most Auspicious is Allah, the Lord Of The Creation.(64)
هُوَ الحَىُّ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ فَادعوهُ مُخلِصينَ لَهُ الدّينَ ۗ الحَمدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(65)
It is He, the Alive – there is no God except Him; therefore worship Him as His sincere bondmen; all praise is to Allah, the Lord Of The Creation.(65)
۞ قُل إِنّى نُهيتُ أَن أَعبُدَ الَّذينَ تَدعونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ لَمّا جاءَنِىَ البَيِّنٰتُ مِن رَبّى وَأُمِرتُ أَن أُسلِمَ لِرَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(66)
Proclaim (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), “I have been forbidden to worship those whom you worship besides Allah whilst clear proofs have come to me from my Lord; and I have been commanded to submit to the Lord Of The Creation.”(66)
هُوَ الَّذى خَلَقَكُم مِن تُرابٍ ثُمَّ مِن نُطفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِن عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ يُخرِجُكُم طِفلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبلُغوا أَشُدَّكُم ثُمَّ لِتَكونوا شُيوخًا ۚ وَمِنكُم مَن يُتَوَفّىٰ مِن قَبلُ ۖ وَلِتَبلُغوا أَجَلًا مُسَمًّى وَلَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ(67)
It is He Who created you from clay, then from a drop of liquid, then from a clot of blood, and then brings you forth as a child, then keeps you alive for you to reach adulthood and then to become old; and some among you pass away earlier, and for you to reach an appointed term, and so that you may understand.(67)
هُوَ الَّذى يُحيۦ وَيُميتُ ۖ فَإِذا قَضىٰ أَمرًا فَإِنَّما يَقولُ لَهُ كُن فَيَكونُ(68)
It is He Who gives life and death; so whenever He wills a thing, He only says to it “Be” – it thereupon happens!(68)
أَلَم تَرَ إِلَى الَّذينَ يُجٰدِلونَ فى ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ أَنّىٰ يُصرَفونَ(69)
Did you not see those who dispute concerning the signs of Allah? Where are they being diverted?(69)
الَّذينَ كَذَّبوا بِالكِتٰبِ وَبِما أَرسَلنا بِهِ رُسُلَنا ۖ فَسَوفَ يَعلَمونَ(70)
Those who denied the Book and what We sent with Our Noble Messengers; so they will soon come to know. –(70)
إِذِ الأَغلٰلُ فى أَعنٰقِهِم وَالسَّلٰسِلُ يُسحَبونَ(71)
When around their necks will be shackles and chains; they will be dragged. –(71)
فِى الحَميمِ ثُمَّ فِى النّارِ يُسجَرونَ(72)
In boiling water; they will then be ignited* in the fire. (Like fuel – see verse 2:24)(72)
ثُمَّ قيلَ لَهُم أَينَ ما كُنتُم تُشرِكونَ(73)
It will then be said to them, “Where are the partners you used to appoint?” –(73)
مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ۖ قالوا ضَلّوا عَنّا بَل لَم نَكُن نَدعوا مِن قَبلُ شَيـًٔا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ يُضِلُّ اللَّهُ الكٰفِرينَ(74)
“As rivals to Allah?”; they will say, “We have lost them – in fact we never used to worship anything before!”; this is how Allah sends the disbelievers astray.(74)
ذٰلِكُم بِما كُنتُم تَفرَحونَ فِى الأَرضِ بِغَيرِ الحَقِّ وَبِما كُنتُم تَمرَحونَ(75)
“This is the recompense of your being happy upon falsehood in the earth, and the recompense of your conceit.”(75)
ادخُلوا أَبوٰبَ جَهَنَّمَ خٰلِدينَ فيها ۖ فَبِئسَ مَثوَى المُتَكَبِّرينَ(76)
“Enter the gates of hell, to remain in it forever”; so what a wretched destination for the haughty!(76)
فَاصبِر إِنَّ وَعدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ ۚ فَإِمّا نُرِيَنَّكَ بَعضَ الَّذى نَعِدُهُم أَو نَتَوَفَّيَنَّكَ فَإِلَينا يُرجَعونَ(77)
Therefore be patient (O dear Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him), undoubtedly Allah’s promise is true; and whether We show some of what We promise them, or cause you to pass away before it – in any case they will return to Us.(77)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا رُسُلًا مِن قَبلِكَ مِنهُم مَن قَصَصنا عَلَيكَ وَمِنهُم مَن لَم نَقصُص عَلَيكَ ۗ وَما كانَ لِرَسولٍ أَن يَأتِىَ بِـٔايَةٍ إِلّا بِإِذنِ اللَّهِ ۚ فَإِذا جاءَ أَمرُ اللَّهِ قُضِىَ بِالحَقِّ وَخَسِرَ هُنالِكَ المُبطِلونَ(78)
Indeed We sent many Noble Messengers before you, so We have related to you the affairs of some among them, and not related the affairs of some; and no Noble Messenger has the right to bring any sign except with the command of Allah; so the time when the command of Allah comes, the true judgement will be delivered and there will the people of falsehood be ruined.(78)
اللَّهُ الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الأَنعٰمَ لِتَركَبوا مِنها وَمِنها تَأكُلونَ(79)
It is Allah Who created the animals for you, in order for you to ride some of them, and some to eat.(79)
وَلَكُم فيها مَنٰفِعُ وَلِتَبلُغوا عَلَيها حاجَةً فى صُدورِكُم وَعَلَيها وَعَلَى الفُلكِ تُحمَلونَ(80)
And in them are numerous benefits for you, and for you to reach your hearts’ desires while riding them – and you ride upon them and upon the ships.(80)
وَيُريكُم ءايٰتِهِ فَأَىَّ ءايٰتِ اللَّهِ تُنكِرونَ(81)
And He shows you His signs; so which sign of Allah will you deny?(81)
أَفَلَم يَسيروا فِى الأَرضِ فَيَنظُروا كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ الَّذينَ مِن قَبلِهِم ۚ كانوا أَكثَرَ مِنهُم وَأَشَدَّ قُوَّةً وَءاثارًا فِى الأَرضِ فَما أَغنىٰ عَنهُم ما كانوا يَكسِبونَ(82)
Did they not travel in the land to see what sort of fate befell those before them? They were more than these in number, and they exceeded them in strength and the signs they left behind in the earth – so what benefit did they get from what they earned?(82)
فَلَمّا جاءَتهُم رُسُلُهُم بِالبَيِّنٰتِ فَرِحوا بِما عِندَهُم مِنَ العِلمِ وَحاقَ بِهِم ما كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(83)
So when their Noble Messengers came to them with clear signs, they remained happy over the worldly knowledge they possessed, and upon them only reverted what they used to mock at!(83)
فَلَمّا رَأَوا بَأسَنا قالوا ءامَنّا بِاللَّهِ وَحدَهُ وَكَفَرنا بِما كُنّا بِهِ مُشرِكينَ(84)
So when they saw Our punishment, they said, “We accept faith in the One Allah, and reject those whom we ascribed with Him.”(84)
فَلَم يَكُ يَنفَعُهُم إيمٰنُهُم لَمّا رَأَوا بَأسَنا ۖ سُنَّتَ اللَّهِ الَّتى قَد خَلَت فى عِبادِهِ ۖ وَخَسِرَ هُنالِكَ الكٰفِرونَ(85)
So their accepting of faith did not benefit them when they saw Our punishment; the tradition of Allah which has passed among His bondmen; and there were the disbelievers ruined.(85)
