Mir Aneesuddin rendition of Surah Council, Consultation, The Counsel(ash-Shura)
42:1 Haa Miim
42:2 Ayn Siin Qaaf.
42:3 Thus it is communicated to you and (it was similarly communicated) to those before you (that) Allah is the Mighty, the Wise.
42:4 Whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth is His, and He is the High, the Great.
42:5 The skies are about to cleave asunder from their top, while the angels glorify by praising their Fosterer and ask for protective forgiveness for those in the earth. Beware ! Allah is certainly Protectively Forgiving, the Merciful. iful.
42:6 And those who take guardians besides Him, Allah is the Custodian over them and you are not a trustee over them.
42:7 And thus We have communicated to you an Arabic Quran, that you may warn the original city ( Mecca ) and those around it, and warn them of the day of gathering wherein there is no doubt, a party will be in the garden and a party will be in the blazing fire.
42:8 And had Allah willed, He would have made them a single community, but He admits whom He wills into His Mercy; and those who are unjust will have neither a guardian nor a helper.
42:9 Or have they taken guardians besides Him? By Allah, He is the Guardian, and He gives life to the dead, and He has power over everything.
42:10 And in whatever thing you disagree, the judgment thereof will be from Allah, that is Allah my Fosterer, in Him I put my trust and towards Him I turn.
42:11 The Initiator of creation of the skies and the earth, He has made mates for you from among yourselves, and pairs of the cattle, whereby He multiplies you. There is nothing like His likeness and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.
42:12 His are the keys of the skies and the earth, He enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straitens ( it for whomever and whenever He wills), He is certainly the Knower of everything.
42:13 He has given to you the ( same ) law of religion which He had enjoined on Nuh; and that which We communicated to you and that which We enjoined on Ibrahim and Musa and Isa ( are also the same), that: “Establish the religion and do not be divided therein.” Hard on the polytheists is that which you invite them to. Allah chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides towards Himself, him who turns ( to Him ).
42:14 And they became divided only after the knowledge that came to them, (because of ) mutual envy. And had a statement from your Fosterer not gone forth (for giving them time) till an appointed term it would have been judged between them. And those who were made to inherit the book after them, are in a restless doubt concerning the ( Quran ). would have been judged between them. And those who were made to inherit the book after them, are in a restless doubt concerning the ( Quran ).
42:15 Then invite to that, and be established ( on the Quran ) as you are commanded, and do not follow their desires, and say, “I believe in that which Allah has sent down of the book, and I am commanded to do justice between you, Allah is our Fosterer and your Fosterer, for us our deeds and for you your deeds, ( let there be ) no argument between us and you, Allah will bring us together and towards Him is the destination.”
42:16 And those who argue concerning Allah after He has been accepted, their argument is weightless with their Fosterer, and on them is anger and for them is severe punishment.
42:17 It is Allah who has sent down the book containing the truth and the balance. And what will make you realize, perhaps the hour of doom is near.
42:18 Those who do not believe in it seek to hasten it, but those who believe are afraid of it and they know that it is true. Beware ! those who have a doubt concerning the hour of doom are certainly far astray ( from the truth ).
42:19 Allah is gracious to His servants, He provides for whom He wills and He is the Strong, the Mighty.
42:20 Whoever intends ( to have the ) tilth of the hereafter, We give increase to him in his tilth*, and whoever intends to have the tilth of this world, We give it to him from it but he has no portion in the hereafter. *Reward
42:21 Or have they partners who have made a law of religion for them, for which Allah has not given ( any ) permission? And had a decisive statement not been made, it would have been judged between them and for those who are unjust, there will certainly be a painful punishment.
42:22 You will see those who were unjust, afraid of that which they earned, and that will befall them. And those who believed and did righteous works will be in meadows of gardens. They will have from their Fosterer what they will for. That is the great grace.
42:23 That is ( the reward about ) which Allah conveys the good news to His servants who believe and do righteous works. Say, “I do not ask you for a reward for it, but love among relatives.” And whoever earns good We will give him more of good therein. Allah is certainly Protectively Forgiving, One Who acknowledges.
42:24 Or do they say, “He has forged a lie against Allah.” ( If such a forgery is done ), then if Allah wills, He will put a seal on your heart; and Allah will abolish the falsehood and prove the truth by His words. He is certainly the Knower of the contents of the bosoms.
42:25 And He it is Who accepts repentance from His servants and pardons the evil deeds, and He knows what you do.
42:26 And He responds to those who believe and do righteous works and He gives them more out of His grace; and the infidels, for them there is a severe punishment.
42:27 And if Allah were to enlarge the provision of His servants they would rebel in the earth, but He sends down according to a programme that which He wills, He is certainly informed of, and seeing His servants.
42:28 And He it is Who sends down the rain after they have despaired, and scatters His mercy, and He is the Guardian, the Praised.
42:29 And among His signs is the creation of the skies and the earth and that which He has spread in them from among the living beings, and He has the power to gather them, when He wills.
42:30 And whatever disaster befalls you it is due to what your own hands have earned and He pardons much.
42:31 And you cannot frustrate ( Allah ) in the earth, and you do not have besides Allah any guardian or helper.
42:32 And among His signs are the ships in the sea, like mountains
42:33 If He wills, He can make the wind stationary so that the ( ships ) remain motionless on its back*. Certainly there are signs in that for every patient grateful one. * Surface of the sea
42:34 Or He can cause them to perish due to that which they earned, but He pardons much.
42:35 And ( let ) those who dispute concerning Our signs know ( that ) there is no escape for them.
42:36 So anything that you are given, is only a ( temporary ) provision for the life of this world, and that which is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who believe and put their trust in their Fosterer,
42:37 and those who avoid the great sins and indecencies and when they are angry they protectively forgive,
42:38 and those who respond to their Fosterer and establish worship ( salat ) and their affairs ( are decided by ) counsel among themselves and they spend from that which We have provided them,
42:39 and those who, when oppression afflicts them, they defend themselves.
42:40 And the requital of an evil is an evil similar to it, but one who pardons and reconciles, then ( the responsibility of ) rewarding him is on Allah, He certainly does not like those who are unjust.
42:41 And for him who defends after an injustice was done to him, then for such, there is no way ( of blame ) against them.
42:42 The way ( of blame ) is only against those who do injustice to mankind and rebel in the earth without having the right to do so, for such, there will be a painful punishment.
42:43 And whoever is patient and forgives, ( then ) those are certainly among the affairs ( which require ) determination.
42:44 And he whom Allah leaves to stray, then for him there is no guardian after that. And you will see those who were unjust, that when they see the punishment they will say, “Is there any way to return?”
42:45 And you will see them being brought before the , humbled due to disgrace, looking secretly from the corners ( of their eyes ). And those who believe will say, “The losers are certainly those who are themselves at loss and their people ( too ), on the day of resurrection.” Beware ! those who are unjust will be in an eternal punishment.
42:46 And they will have no guardians to help them besides Allah, and He whom Allah leaves to stray, for him there is no way ( of safety ).
42:47 Respond to your Fosterer before the coming of the day from Allah, for which there is no turning back. On that day there will be no refuge for you nor will you have ( the power of ) rejection.
42:48 But if they turn away, then We have not sent you as a custodian over them, there is nothing ( incumbent ) on you except conveyance ( of the message ). And when We make man taste mercy from Us, he is exultant thereat, but when an evil afflicts them due to what their hands have sent forth, then man certainly becomes ungrateful ( forgetting the earlier good days ).
42:49 Allah’s is the kingdom of the skies and the earth. He creates what He wills, He grants females ( daughters ) to whom He wills and He grants males ( sons ) to whom He wills.
42:50 Or He pairs them ( by granting both ) males and females and He makes barren whom He wills. He is certainly Knowing, Powerful.
42:51 And it is not for a man that Allah should speak to him except ( through inspirational ) communication or from behind a veil or by sending a messenger who communicates by His permission what He wills, He is certainly High, Wise.
42:52 And thus ( in the manner listed last above ), We have communicated to you ( through ) the spirit ( angel Jibreel, the message ), by Our command. You did not know what the book was nor ( did you know what ) the belief ( was ), but We made it a light, guiding thereby, whom We will of Our servants, and you are certainly guiding towards the straight path, the book was nor ( did you know what ) the belief ( was ), but We made it a light, guiding thereby, whom We will of Our servants, and you are certainly guiding towards the straight path,
42:53 the path of Allah, Whose is whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth. Beware ! towards Allah is the destination of affairs.
