as rendered by Mir Aneesuddin

Mir Aneesuddin rendition of Surah Luqman, Lukman(Luqman)
31:1 Alif Laam Miim.
31:2 Those are the signs of the book of wisdom,
31:3 a guidance and a mercy for the doers of good,
31:4 those who establish worship (salat) and give charity (zakat) and are certain of the hereafter.
31:5 Those are on guidance from their Fosterer and those are the persons who are successful.
31:6 And among mankind is he who purchases (as his) pastime issue, misleading of (people) from the way of Allah, without having (any) knowledge, and takes it as a mockery. Those are the persons for whom there is a disgraceful punishment.
31:7 And when Our signs are read to him he turns back proudly as if he did not hear them, as if there is heaviness in his ears, so convey to him the news of a painful punishment.
31:8 Those who believe and do righteous works, for them are gardens of bliss,
31:9 they will certainly stay in them, Allah’s promise is true and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
31:10 He has created the skies (heavenly bodies) without any support that you see, and He has put mountains in the earth lest it should shake with you, and He has spread in it all (kinds) of moving creatures, and We sent down water from the sky, then We caused every kind of beneficial (thing) to grow therein.
31:11 This is the creation of Allah, so show me that which those besides Him have created, no, the unjust are in clear error. (R 1)
31:12 And indeed We gave wisdom to Luqman, that: be grateful to Allah, and one who is grateful then he is grateful only for (the benefit of) his own soul, and one who is ungrateful then Allah is certainly Independent, Praised, fit of) his own soul, and one who is ungrateful then Allah is certainly Independent, Praised,
31:13 and when Luqman said to son while admonishing him, “O my son! do not associate (any partner) with Allah. Polytheism is certainly a great injustice.”
31:14 And We have enjoined on man regarding his parents, his mother carried him (in states of) weakness upon weakness, and his weaning (was completed) in two years, (so these obligations demand) that (you) be grateful to Me and to your parents, towards Me is the destination.
31:15 And if they strive with you that you should associate with Me (something) about which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them, but keep company with them in this world (in a manner that is) recognized (as good), and follow the way of him who turns to Me, then to Me is your return, then I will inform you about that which you used to do.
31:16 (Luqman further said), “O my son! even if it is the weight of the grain of a mustard seed and it is in a rock or in the skies or in the earth, Allah will bring it, (because) Allah is certainly Subtlety Informed.
31:17 O my son! establish worship (salat) and enjoin that which is recognized (as good) and stop (people) from that which is not recognized (as good) and be patient on whatever befalls on you, that certainly is among the deciding factors of affairs.
31:18 And do not turn away your cheek boastfully from people nor walk proudly in the earth, Allah certainly does not like anyone who considers himself great, boastful.
31:19 And be moderate in your walk and lower your voice, the harshest of voices is certainly the voice of the ass.”
31:20 Did you not consider that Allah has subjected to your service that which is in the skies and that which is in the earth and has (showered) His favors on you excessively (both) externally and internally? And among mankind is he who disputes regarding Allah without knowledge and without guidance and without a book giving light.
31:21 And when it is said to them, “Follow that which Allah has sent down,” they say, “No, we will follow that on which we found our fathers.” What! even if the devil used to invite them to the punishment of blazing fire?
31:22 And one who submits himself to Allah and he is the doer of good, then he has indeed caught hold of a strong handle for which there is no breaking off, and the (decision of) the consequences of affairs is Allah’s.
31:23 And one who does not believe, do not let his infidelity grieve you, to Us is their return, so We will inform them of that which they did. Allah is certainly the Knower of that which is in the bosoms.
31:24 We will make them enjoy a little then We will drive them towards a harsh punishment.
31:25 And if you ask them, “Who created the skies and the earth?” They will definitely say, “Allah.” Say, “Praise is due only for Allah, but the majority of them does not know.”
31:26 Allah’s is whatever is in the skies and the earth. Allah is certainly the Independent, the Praised.
31:27 And had all the trees that are in the earth been pens and the sea (were ink) with seven more seas added to it, (even then) the words of Allah would not be exhausted, Allah is certainly Mighty, Wise.
31:28 Your creation and your raising is nothing but like (the creation and raising of) a single soul. Allah is certainly Hearing, Seeing.
31:29 Did you not consider that Allah makes the night to enter into the day and makes the day to enter into the night and He has compelled the sun and the moon (to follow His laws), each one moves till an appointed term, and that Allah is informed of what you do?
31:30 That is because Allah is the Reality and that which they pray to besides Him, is falsehood; and that Allah is the High, the Great.
31:31 Did you not consider that the ships sail in the sea due to Allah’s favor, that He may show you (some) of His signs? Certainly there are signs in that for every patient, grateful one.
31:32 And when a wave covers them like overshadowing clouds, they pray to Allah, making religion exclusively for Him, but when He brings them safe to the land, then among them there are those who compromise (by not continuing to keep religion purely for Allah); and no one knowingly denies Our signs except every traitor, ungrateful one.
31:33 O mankind! be careful of your Fosterer and fear the day when a father will not be able to pay for the penalty on behalf of his son, and the son will not be able to pay for anything by way of penalty on behalf of his father. Allah’s promise is certainly true, so do not let the life of this world deceive you nor let the deceiver deceive you about Allah.
31:34 The knowledge of the hour of doom is certainly with Allah. And He sends down the rain. And He knows that which is in the wombs. And no person knows what he will earn tomorrow (in future). And no person knows in what (part of) the earth he will die. Allah is certainly Knowing, Informed.
