Muhammad Sarwar(Muhammad Sarwar)
بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ حم(1)
Ha. Mim.(1)
وَالكِتٰبِ المُبينِ(2)
I swear by the illustrious Book.(2)
إِنّا جَعَلنٰهُ قُرءٰنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَعَلَّكُم تَعقِلونَ(3)
We have made it an Arabic reading text so that perhaps you may understand.(3)
وَإِنَّهُ فى أُمِّ الكِتٰبِ لَدَينا لَعَلِىٌّ حَكيمٌ(4)
It (the Quran) exists in the original Book with Us which is certainly Most Exalted, full of wisdom and (beyond linguistic structures).(4)
أَفَنَضرِبُ عَنكُمُ الذِّكرَ صَفحًا أَن كُنتُم قَومًا مُسرِفينَ(5)
Can We ignore sending you the Quran just because you are a transgressing people?(5)
وَكَم أَرسَلنا مِن نَبِىٍّ فِى الأَوَّلينَ(6)
How many Messengers did We send to the ancient people?(6)
وَما يَأتيهِم مِن نَبِىٍّ إِلّا كانوا بِهِ يَستَهزِءونَ(7)
No Prophet came to them whom they did not mock.(7)
فَأَهلَكنا أَشَدَّ مِنهُم بَطشًا وَمَضىٰ مَثَلُ الأَوَّلينَ(8)
We destroyed the strongest among them in power. The stories of the ancient people have already been mentioned.(8)
وَلَئِن سَأَلتَهُم مَن خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ لَيَقولُنَّ خَلَقَهُنَّ العَزيزُ العَليمُ(9)
(Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "The Majestic and All-knowing God has created them".(9)
الَّذى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الأَرضَ مَهدًا وَجَعَلَ لَكُم فيها سُبُلًا لَعَلَّكُم تَهتَدونَ(10)
It is He who has made the earth for you as a cradle and has made roads therein so that you will perhaps seek guidance.(10)
وَالَّذى نَزَّلَ مِنَ السَّماءِ ماءً بِقَدَرٍ فَأَنشَرنا بِهِ بَلدَةً مَيتًا ۚ كَذٰلِكَ تُخرَجونَ(11)
It is He who has sent down water from the sky in a known measure by which He has given life to the dead earth. In the same way will you also be resurrected.(11)
وَالَّذى خَلَقَ الأَزوٰجَ كُلَّها وَجَعَلَ لَكُم مِنَ الفُلكِ وَالأَنعٰمِ ما تَركَبونَ(12)
It is He who has created everything in pairs and the ships and cattle for you to 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 perhaps when you ride them, you will recall the bounties of your Lord and when you establish your control over it you would say, "Glory belongs to Him who has made it subservient to us when we would not have been able to do so ourselves.(13)
وَإِنّا إِلىٰ رَبِّنا لَمُنقَلِبونَ(14)
To our Lord we shall all return".(14)
وَجَعَلوا لَهُ مِن عِبادِهِ جُزءًا ۚ إِنَّ الإِنسٰنَ لَكَفورٌ مُبينٌ(15)
The pagans have considered some of His servants as His children. There is no doubt that the human being is simply ungrateful.(15)
أَمِ اتَّخَذَ مِمّا يَخلُقُ بَناتٍ وَأَصفىٰكُم بِالبَنينَ(16)
Has God chosen some of His own creatures as daughters for Himself and has given you the preference of having sons?(16)
وَإِذا بُشِّرَ أَحَدُهُم بِما ضَرَبَ لِلرَّحمٰنِ مَثَلًا ظَلَّ وَجهُهُ مُسوَدًّا وَهُوَ كَظيمٌ(17)
When one of them is given the glad news of the birth of a daughter, which they believe to be the only kind of child that the Beneficent God can have, his face blackens with anger.(17)
أَوَمَن يُنَشَّؤُا۟ فِى الحِليَةِ وَهُوَ فِى الخِصامِ غَيرُ مُبينٍ(18)
Does God choose for Himself the kind of children who grow up wearing ornaments and who are not strong enough to defend their rights?(18)
وَجَعَلُوا المَلٰئِكَةَ الَّذينَ هُم عِبٰدُ الرَّحمٰنِ إِنٰثًا ۚ أَشَهِدوا خَلقَهُم ۚ سَتُكتَبُ شَهٰدَتُهُم وَيُسـَٔلونَ(19)
Do they say that the angels, who are the servants of the Beneficent God, are females? Have they witnessed their creation? Their words as such will be recorded and they will be questioned for it.(19)
وَقالوا لَو شاءَ الرَّحمٰنُ ما عَبَدنٰهُم ۗ ما لَهُم بِذٰلِكَ مِن عِلمٍ ۖ إِن هُم إِلّا يَخرُصونَ(20)
The pagans say, "Had the Beneficent God wanted, we would not have worshipped them (idols)." Whatever they say is not based on knowledge. It is only a false conjecture.(20)
أَم ءاتَينٰهُم كِتٰبًا مِن قَبلِهِ فَهُم بِهِ مُستَمسِكونَ(21)
Had We, before sending the Quran, given them a book to which they now refer as an authority?(21)
بَل قالوا إِنّا وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا عَلىٰ أُمَّةٍ وَإِنّا عَلىٰ ءاثٰرِهِم مُهتَدونَ(22)
In fact, they say, "We found our fathers following a certain belief and we now follow in their footsteps for our guidance".(22)
وَكَذٰلِكَ ما أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ فى قَريَةٍ مِن نَذيرٍ إِلّا قالَ مُترَفوها إِنّا وَجَدنا ءاباءَنا عَلىٰ أُمَّةٍ وَإِنّا عَلىٰ ءاثٰرِهِم مُقتَدونَ(23)
In the same way, whenever We had sent a Messenger before you to warn a town, the rich ones therein said, "We found our fathers following a certain belief and we follow in their footsteps.(23)
۞ قٰلَ أَوَلَو جِئتُكُم بِأَهدىٰ مِمّا وَجَدتُم عَلَيهِ ءاباءَكُم ۖ قالوا إِنّا بِما أُرسِلتُم بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(24)
The Messengers would say, "Would you still follow in the footsteps of your fathers even if I was to bring you better guidance?" They would say, "We have no faith in your message".(24)
فَانتَقَمنا مِنهُم ۖ فَانظُر كَيفَ كانَ عٰقِبَةُ المُكَذِّبينَ(25)
We took revenge on them. See how terrible the end of those who rejected (Or revelations) was!(25)
وَإِذ قالَ إِبرٰهيمُ لِأَبيهِ وَقَومِهِ إِنَّنى بَراءٌ مِمّا تَعبُدونَ(26)
When Abraham said to his father and his people, "I boldly renounce what you worship(26)
إِلَّا الَّذى فَطَرَنى فَإِنَّهُ سَيَهدينِ(27)
except for the One who has created me and will guide me".(27)
وَجَعَلَها كَلِمَةً باقِيَةً فى عَقِبِهِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(28)
God made (belief in one God) an everlasting task for his successors, so that perhaps they would return (to Him).(28)
بَل مَتَّعتُ هٰؤُلاءِ وَءاباءَهُم حَتّىٰ جاءَهُمُ الحَقُّ وَرَسولٌ مُبينٌ(29)
In fact, We allowed them and their fathers to enjoy themselves until the truth and a strong Messenger came to them.(29)
وَلَمّا جاءَهُمُ الحَقُّ قالوا هٰذا سِحرٌ وَإِنّا بِهِ كٰفِرونَ(30)
When the truth came to them, they said, "This is magic and we have no faith in it".(30)
وَقالوا لَولا نُزِّلَ هٰذَا القُرءانُ عَلىٰ رَجُلٍ مِنَ القَريَتَينِ عَظيمٍ(31)
Then they said, "Why this Quran had not been revealed to a man from either of the two great towns".(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)
Do they distribute the mercy of your Lord? It is We who have distributed their sustenance in this world and raised the positions of some of them above the others so that they would mock each other. The mercy of your Lord is better than what they can amass.(32)
وَلَولا أَن يَكونَ النّاسُ أُمَّةً وٰحِدَةً لَجَعَلنا لِمَن يَكفُرُ بِالرَّحمٰنِ لِبُيوتِهِم سُقُفًا مِن فِضَّةٍ وَمَعارِجَ عَلَيها يَظهَرونَ(33)
Were it not for the fear that all people would become one in disbelief, We would have made for the disbelievers in the Beneficent God ceilings out of silver and ladders by which they would climb up,(33)
وَلِبُيوتِهِم أَبوٰبًا وَسُرُرًا عَلَيها يَتَّكِـٔونَ(34)
doors for their houses, couches on which to recline,(34)
وَزُخرُفًا ۚ وَإِن كُلُّ ذٰلِكَ لَمّا مَتٰعُ الحَيوٰةِ الدُّنيا ۚ وَالءاخِرَةُ عِندَ رَبِّكَ لِلمُتَّقينَ(35)
and other ornament of gold. All these are only the means of enjoyment in this world, but the pious will receive their reward from your Lord in the life hereafter.(35)
وَمَن يَعشُ عَن ذِكرِ الرَّحمٰنِ نُقَيِّض لَهُ شَيطٰنًا فَهُوَ لَهُ قَرينٌ(36)
We shall make satan the companion of whoever ignores the remembrance of the Beneficent God.(36)
وَإِنَّهُم لَيَصُدّونَهُم عَنِ السَّبيلِ وَيَحسَبونَ أَنَّهُم مُهتَدونَ(37)
Satan will prevent them from the right path while they think that they have the right guidance.(37)
حَتّىٰ إِذا جاءَنا قالَ يٰلَيتَ بَينى وَبَينَكَ بُعدَ المَشرِقَينِ فَبِئسَ القَرينُ(38)
When he returns to us, he will say (to satan), "Would that there had been as long a distance between me and you as that between the East and West. What a terrible companion you have been".(38)
وَلَن يَنفَعَكُمُ اليَومَ إِذ ظَلَمتُم أَنَّكُم فِى العَذابِ مُشتَرِكونَ(39)
They will be told on the Day of Judgment, "Regret will never be of any benefit to you. You have done injustice to your souls and you will share the torment".(39)
أَفَأَنتَ تُسمِعُ الصُّمَّ أَو تَهدِى العُمىَ وَمَن كانَ فى ضَلٰلٍ مُبينٍ(40)
(Muhammad), can you make the deaf hear or guide the blind or the one who is clearly in error?(40)
فَإِمّا نَذهَبَنَّ بِكَ فَإِنّا مِنهُم مُنتَقِمونَ(41)
We shall revenge them either after your death(41)
أَو نُرِيَنَّكَ الَّذى وَعَدنٰهُم فَإِنّا عَلَيهِم مُقتَدِرونَ(42)
or show them to you suffering the torment with which We had threatened them. We are certainly dominant over them all.(42)
فَاستَمسِك بِالَّذى أوحِىَ إِلَيكَ ۖ إِنَّكَ عَلىٰ صِرٰطٍ مُستَقيمٍ(43)
Follow devotedly that which is revealed to you. You are certainly on the right path.(43)
وَإِنَّهُ لَذِكرٌ لَكَ وَلِقَومِكَ ۖ وَسَوفَ تُسـَٔلونَ(44)
The Quran is a reminder to you and to your people and you will soon be questioned about it.(44)
وَسـَٔل مَن أَرسَلنا مِن قَبلِكَ مِن رُسُلِنا أَجَعَلنا مِن دونِ الرَّحمٰنِ ءالِهَةً يُعبَدونَ(45)
You can ask Our Messengers whom We sent before you if We had commanded them to worship other gods besides the Beneficent God?"(45)
وَلَقَد أَرسَلنا موسىٰ بِـٔايٰتِنا إِلىٰ فِرعَونَ وَمَلَإِي۟هِ فَقالَ إِنّى رَسولُ رَبِّ العٰلَمينَ(46)
We sent Moses to the Pharaoh and his nobles with Our miracles and he said, "I am the Messenger of the Lord of the Universe".(46)
فَلَمّا جاءَهُم بِـٔايٰتِنا إِذا هُم مِنها يَضحَكونَ(47)
When he showed them Our miracles, they started to laugh at them.(47)
وَما نُريهِم مِن ءايَةٍ إِلّا هِىَ أَكبَرُ مِن أُختِها ۖ وَأَخَذنٰهُم بِالعَذابِ لَعَلَّهُم يَرجِعونَ(48)
Of all the miracles which We showed to them the latter ones were greater than the former. We struck them with torment so that perhaps they would return to Us.(48)
وَقالوا يٰأَيُّهَ السّاحِرُ ادعُ لَنا رَبَّكَ بِما عَهِدَ عِندَكَ إِنَّنا لَمُهتَدونَ(49)
They said, "Magician, pray to your Lord for us through your covenant with Him (If he saves us from the torment), we shall certainly seek guidance".(49)
فَلَمّا كَشَفنا عَنهُمُ العَذابَ إِذا هُم يَنكُثونَ(50)
When We relieved them from the torment they suddenly turned back on their heels.(50)
وَنادىٰ فِرعَونُ فى قَومِهِ قالَ يٰقَومِ أَلَيسَ لى مُلكُ مِصرَ وَهٰذِهِ الأَنهٰرُ تَجرى مِن تَحتى ۖ أَفَلا تُبصِرونَ(51)
The Pharaoh shouted to his people, "My people, is the kingdom of Egypt not mine? and can you not see that the streams flow from beneath my palace?(51)
أَم أَنا۠ خَيرٌ مِن هٰذَا الَّذى هُوَ مَهينٌ وَلا يَكادُ يُبينُ(52)
Am I not better than this lowly man who can barely express himself?(52)
فَلَولا أُلقِىَ عَلَيهِ أَسوِرَةٌ مِن ذَهَبٍ أَو جاءَ مَعَهُ المَلٰئِكَةُ مُقتَرِنينَ(53)
Why have bracelets of gold not been given to him and why have some angels not accompanied him?"(53)
فَاستَخَفَّ قَومَهُ فَأَطاعوهُ ۚ إِنَّهُم كانوا قَومًا فٰسِقينَ(54)
Thus, he made dimwits out of his people and they followed him. They, certainly, were a sinful people. When they invoked Our anger,(54)
فَلَمّا ءاسَفونَا انتَقَمنا مِنهُم فَأَغرَقنٰهُم أَجمَعينَ(55)
We took revenge on them by drowning them all together.(55)
فَجَعَلنٰهُم سَلَفًا وَمَثَلًا لِلءاخِرينَ(56)
We made them become of the people of the past and an example for the coming generations.(56)
۞ وَلَمّا ضُرِبَ ابنُ مَريَمَ مَثَلًا إِذا قَومُكَ مِنهُ يَصِدّونَ(57)
When the son of Mary was mentioned as an example, you people cried out in protest, saying,(57)
وَقالوا ءَأٰلِهَتُنا خَيرٌ أَم هُوَ ۚ ما ضَرَبوهُ لَكَ إِلّا جَدَلًا ۚ بَل هُم قَومٌ خَصِمونَ(58)
"Are our gods any better than Jesus (for according to Muhammad), if our gods go to hell so too will Jesus. What they say is only a false argument. In fact, they are a quarrelsome people.(58)
إِن هُوَ إِلّا عَبدٌ أَنعَمنا عَلَيهِ وَجَعَلنٰهُ مَثَلًا لِبَنى إِسرٰءيلَ(59)
Jesus was a servant of Ours to whom We had granted favors and whom We made as an example for the Israelites.(59)
وَلَو نَشاءُ لَجَعَلنا مِنكُم مَلٰئِكَةً فِى الأَرضِ يَخلُفونَ(60)
Had We wanted, We could have made the angels as your successors on the earth.(60)
وَإِنَّهُ لَعِلمٌ لِلسّاعَةِ فَلا تَمتَرُنَّ بِها وَاتَّبِعونِ ۚ هٰذا صِرٰطٌ مُستَقيمٌ(61)
(Muhammad), tell them, "Jesus is a sign of the Hour of Doom. Have no doubt about it and follow me; this is the straight path.(61)
وَلا يَصُدَّنَّكُمُ الشَّيطٰنُ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَكُم عَدُوٌّ مُبينٌ(62)
Let satan not prevent you from the right path. He is your sworn enemy".(62)
وَلَمّا جاءَ عيسىٰ بِالبَيِّنٰتِ قالَ قَد جِئتُكُم بِالحِكمَةِ وَلِأُبَيِّنَ لَكُم بَعضَ الَّذى تَختَلِفونَ فيهِ ۖ فَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطيعونِ(63)
When Jesus came with clear proof (in support of his truthfulness), he said, "I have come to you with wisdom to clarify for you some of the matters in which you have disputes. Have fear of God and obey me.(63)
إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ رَبّى وَرَبُّكُم فَاعبُدوهُ ۚ هٰذا صِرٰطٌ مُستَقيمٌ(64)
God is your Lord and my Lord, so worship Him. This is the right path".(64)
فَاختَلَفَ الأَحزابُ مِن بَينِهِم ۖ فَوَيلٌ لِلَّذينَ ظَلَموا مِن عَذابِ يَومٍ أَليمٍ(65)
But certain groups created differences among themselves. Woe to the unjust. They will face a painful torment.(65)
هَل يَنظُرونَ إِلَّا السّاعَةَ أَن تَأتِيَهُم بَغتَةً وَهُم لا يَشعُرونَ(66)
Are they waiting for the Hour of Doom when the torment will suddenly strike them and they will not even realize from where it came?(66)
الأَخِلّاءُ يَومَئِذٍ بَعضُهُم لِبَعضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا المُتَّقينَ(67)
All intimate friends on that day will become each others enemies except for the pious,(67)
يٰعِبادِ لا خَوفٌ عَلَيكُمُ اليَومَ وَلا أَنتُم تَحزَنونَ(68)
whom God will tell, "My servants, you need have no fear on this day, nor will you be grieved".(68)
الَّذينَ ءامَنوا بِـٔايٰتِنا وَكانوا مُسلِمينَ(69)
Those who have faith in Our revelations and have submitted themselves to Our will,(69)
ادخُلُوا الجَنَّةَ أَنتُم وَأَزوٰجُكُم تُحبَرونَ(70)
will be told, "Enter Paradise with your spouses in delight.(70)
يُطافُ عَلَيهِم بِصِحافٍ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَأَكوابٍ ۖ وَفيها ما تَشتَهيهِ الأَنفُسُ وَتَلَذُّ الأَعيُنُ ۖ وَأَنتُم فيها خٰلِدونَ(71)
Golden dishes and cups will be passed among them. All that the souls may desire and that may delight their eyes will be available therein. You will live therein forever.(71)
وَتِلكَ الجَنَّةُ الَّتى أورِثتُموها بِما كُنتُم تَعمَلونَ(72)
This is the Paradise which you have received as your inheritance by virtue of what you have done.(72)
لَكُم فيها فٰكِهَةٌ كَثيرَةٌ مِنها تَأكُلونَ(73)
You will have abundant fruits therein to consume".(73)
إِنَّ المُجرِمينَ فى عَذابِ جَهَنَّمَ خٰلِدونَ(74)
The criminals will live forever in the torment of hell. Their torment will not be relieved and they will despair of escaping.(74)
لا يُفَتَّرُ عَنهُم وَهُم فيهِ مُبلِسونَ(75)
We had not done any injustice to them but they had wronged themselves.(75)
وَما ظَلَمنٰهُم وَلٰكِن كانوا هُمُ الظّٰلِمينَ(76)
They will cry out, "Guard, let your Lord destroy us".(76)
وَنادَوا يٰمٰلِكُ لِيَقضِ عَلَينا رَبُّكَ ۖ قالَ إِنَّكُم مٰكِثونَ(77)
The angelic guard will say, "You will have to stay.(77)
لَقَد جِئنٰكُم بِالحَقِّ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَكُم لِلحَقِّ كٰرِهونَ(78)
We brought you the truth but most of you disliked it".(78)
أَم أَبرَموا أَمرًا فَإِنّا مُبرِمونَ(79)
If the disbelievers persist in their disbelief, We shall also persist in punishing them.(79)
أَم يَحسَبونَ أَنّا لا نَسمَعُ سِرَّهُم وَنَجوىٰهُم ۚ بَلىٰ وَرُسُلُنا لَدَيهِم يَكتُبونَ(80)
Do they think that We do not hear their secrets and whispers? We certainly can hear them and Our Messengers record it all.(80)
قُل إِن كانَ لِلرَّحمٰنِ وَلَدٌ فَأَنا۠ أَوَّلُ العٰبِدينَ(81)
(Muhammad), say, "Had the Beneficent God really had a son, I would certainly have been the first one to worship him.(81)
سُبحٰنَ رَبِّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ رَبِّ العَرشِ عَمّا يَصِفونَ(82)
The Lord of the heavens and the earth and the Throne is too glorious to be described in the way they describe Him.(82)
فَذَرهُم يَخوضوا وَيَلعَبوا حَتّىٰ يُلٰقوا يَومَهُمُ الَّذى يوعَدونَ(83)
Leave them (to indulge) in their desires and play around until they face that day which has been promised to them.(83)
وَهُوَ الَّذى فِى السَّماءِ إِلٰهٌ وَفِى الأَرضِ إِلٰهٌ ۚ وَهُوَ الحَكيمُ العَليمُ(84)
It is God who is the Lord of the heavens and is the Lord on earth. He is All-wise and All-knowing.(84)
وَتَبارَكَ الَّذى لَهُ مُلكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضِ وَما بَينَهُما وَعِندَهُ عِلمُ السّاعَةِ وَإِلَيهِ تُرجَعونَ(85)
Blessed is He to whom belongs the heavens, the earth and all that is between them and who has the knowledge of the Hour of Doom. To Him you will all return.(85)
وَلا يَملِكُ الَّذينَ يَدعونَ مِن دونِهِ الشَّفٰعَةَ إِلّا مَن شَهِدَ بِالحَقِّ وَهُم يَعلَمونَ(86)
Those whom they worship besides God are not able to intercede, except for those among them who believe in the Truth (God) and who know whom to intercede for.(86)
وَلَئِن سَأَلتَهُم مَن خَلَقَهُم لَيَقولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۖ فَأَنّىٰ يُؤفَكونَ(87)
(Muhammad), if you ask them, "Who had created the idols?" They will certainly say, "God has created them." Why do you then turn away from God?(87)
وَقيلِهِ يٰرَبِّ إِنَّ هٰؤُلاءِ قَومٌ لا يُؤمِنونَ(88)
(God has knowledge of Muhammad's words when he complains to Him), "My Lord, these, my people, do not believe".(88)
فَاصفَح عَنهُم وَقُل سَلٰمٌ ۚ فَسَوفَ يَعلَمونَ(89)
We have told him, "Ignore them and say to them 'farewell'. They will soon know the consequences of their deeds(89)
