Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah Luqman, Lukman(Luqman)
31:1 A. L. M.
31:2 These (alphabets are) Signs of Al-Kitab-ul-Hakim ,
31:3 Hudah and Rahmah for those who do good in perfection ,
31:4 those who establish As-Salat and pay Az-Zakat and they, regarding the Hereafter, they have faith with certainty —
31:5 they are on guidance from their Nourisher-Sustainer and they: they are those who have attained success .
31:6 And of mankind is that who purchases Lahw-alhadees (absurd and senseless hadees) in order that he may mislead (people) against the Way of Allah without knowledge, and regards this (Prescribed Path of Allah) as a mockery. Those people: for them awaits a humiliating punishment .
31:7 And when Our Verses are reproduced unto him, he turned away becoming arrogant in pride as if he has not listened to it — as if there is a plug in his both ears. So announce to him a painful torment .
31:8 Verily, those who have Believed and did righteous deeds, for them are Gardens of delight ,
31:9 abiders therein. Promise of Allah is true. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise .
31:10 He has created the heavens without any supports that you might see, and He has set on the earth firm mountains lest it should become unstable with you. And He has spread therein from all sorts of living, moving creatures. And We sent down (rain-) water from towards the sky, then We caused to grow therein from all kinds of delightful (vegetation and plants etc.) .
31:11 This is the creation of Allah. Then show Me what is that which those besides Him, have created. Nay, the transgressors are in evident error .
31:12 And certainly, definitely We gave Luqman wisdom; that, adopt practical thankfulness for Allah, and whosoever would pay thanks, so surely what (is a fact is that) he pays thanks for his own self; and whosoever disobeyed — then undoubtedly Allah is Self-Independent, Immensely Praised .
31:13 And when Luqman spoke for his son, and he: he is advising him, “O my son! Do not join partners with Allah; verily, polytheism is certainly (the) biggest injustice.”
31:14 And We advised human-being about both of his parents; his mother bore him in weakness upon weakness, and the termination of his (motherly feeding) is in two years, that, adopt practical thankfulness for Me and for both of your parents; towards Me is the place of return .
31:15 And if both exhorted you upon (this) that you should join (someothers) as partners with Me, there is no knowledge for you about this, then do not obey them both, and keep company with both of them in the world admirably, and follow the path of that who remained obediently attentive towards Me; then, towards Me is your place of return, then I will inform you about whatever you had been doing.
31:16 “O my loving son! Certainly it, if it be the weight of a grain from the mustard, and it be inside a rock or in the skies or in the earth, Allah will come with it; verily Allah is the Keenest Observer, the Most Well-Informed .
31:17 O my loving son! Establish As-Salat and enjoin virtue and prohibit from vice, and be patient on what befell you — undoubtedly that is from the stability (of the will-power) for the actions .
31:18 And do not puff up your cheek for men, and do not move in the earth insolently. Certainly, Allah does not like any self-centred, boasting person .
31:19 And be moderate in your gait and control from your voice — surely the harshest of the voices is definitely the voice (braying) of the ass.”
31:20 See you not (O men) that Allah has controlled and regulated for you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and has showered over you His Graces — apparent and evident as well as hidden and invisible? Yet of mankind is that who argues and disputes ‘in Allah’ without Ilm (‘Knowledge,’), and not (through) Hudah (‘Guidance’) and not (through) Kitabun Munir (‘A Light Emitting Book’) .
31:21 And when it is said to them: “Follow that which Allah has sent down,” they said: “Nay, we shall (only) follow that on which we found our fathers.” Would they then do so even if Satan invites them to the torment of the Fire ?
31:22 And whosoever submits his face (i.e., personality) to Allah while he is a Muhsin then surely he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold. And towards Allah is the final end of (all) affairs .
31:23 And whoever disbelieved, then let not his disbelief grieve you. To Us is their returning place, then We will inform them about what they did. Surely, Allah is Well-Informed about the condition of (the hearts in) the chests .
31:24 We let them enjoy a little (during the life-span in this world), afterwards We shall drive them helpless and disowned to a severe torment (in the life of the Hereafter) .
31:25 And if you asked them who has created the heavens and the earth surely, they will say: “Allah”. Say: “Specified Praise suits Allah (Alone).” Nay, most of them know not .
31:26 To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Verily, Allah — He is the Self-Independent, the Immensely Praised .
31:27 And if (it so happened) that whatever is in the earth out of the trees (converted itself to produce) pens and the sea helps it (becoming ink, and) thereafter seven seas (come to its aid) — the statements of Allah have not (yet) completed. Surely, Allah (is) All-Mighty, All-Wise .
31:28 Neither your creation, and nor your resurrection (is) except like that of a single Nafs. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer .
31:29 Don’t you see that Allah merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night? [The day-time gets reduced and the night-hours get extended]. And He has controlled and regulated the sun and the moon, all continue in motion and movement for a specified term; and that Allah is All-Aware of what you do .
31:30 This is because Allah, He is the Reality; and that what the people invoke (as deities) is Al-Batil. And that Allah, He is the Most High, the Most Great .
31:31 Don’t you see that the ship sails through the sea by Allah’s Grace — so that He may make you see of His Signs? Verily, in this are surely signs for all those who are perseverant, grateful ones .
31:32 And when a wave covered them like coverings, they invoked Allah as those who keep the Religion strictly pure for Him. Then when He provided them a safe passage to the land, then amongst them are seen those who adopt a middle path. And do not strive against Ayaatina except all the perfidious, ungrateful individuals .
31:33 O you mankind! Pay obedience to your Nourisher-Sustainer and be afraid of the Day when does not benefit a father unto his son, and nor the son (is one that) he pays any thing for the redemption on behalf of his father. Verily, the Promise of Allah is true. Let not then this worldly life deceive you, and let not the chief deceiver (Iblis) deceive you about Allah .
31:34 Verily, Allah! With Him is the information about the Hour; and He sends down the rain; and He knows that which is in the wombs. And a Nafs (human personality) does not know what is that she will earn tomorrow, and a Nafs does not know in what land she will die. Verily, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware .
