Alif Laam Raa. A book which We have sent down to you so that, by the permission of their Fosterer, you may bring out mankind from the darkness (and lead them) towards the light, towards the path of the Mighty, the Praised.
Allah is He, Whose is whatsoever is in the skies and whatsoever is in the earth; and sorrowful will be the state of the infidels due to a severe punishment.
Those who love the life of this world more than the hereafter and turn away (people) from Allah’s way and seek crookedness in it, they are far astray.
And We did not send any messenger (with a message) but in the language of his people that he might make (things) clear to them. Then Allah leaves in error whom He wills and guides whom He wills and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
And We had sent Musa with Our signs (saying) that, “Bring out your people from the darkness towards the light and remind them of the days (favours) of Allah, certainly in that there are signs for every patient, grateful one.”
And when Musa said to his people, “Remember Allah’s favour on you when He delivered you from the people of Firawn who subjected you to severe punishment, when they killed your sons and let your women live, and in that there was a great trial from your Fosterer.
And when your Fosterer announced: If you are grateful I will definitely give you more, but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is certainly severe.”
And Musa said, “If you are ungrateful, you and all in the earth together, (even) then Allah is certainly Independent, Praised.”
Has the news of those before you not come to you: people of Nuh and Aad and Samood and those after them? They do not know them but Allah (knows). Their messengers came to them with clear proofs but they thrust their hands in their mouths and said, “We certainly do not believe in that which you are sent with, and we are certainly in doubt causing restlessness, about that which you call us to.”
Their messengers said, “Is there a doubt about Allah, the Initiator of the creation of the skies and the earth? He invites you to protectively forgive you your sins and to give you time till an appointed term.” They said, “You are nothing but men like us, you intend to turn us away from that which our fathers used to serve (worship), so bring to us some clear authority.” othing but men like us, you intend to turn us away from that which our fathers used to serve (worship), so bring to us some clear authority.”
Their messengers said to them, “We are (of course) nothing but men like you but Allah bestows (his) favour on whom He wills of His servants, and it is not possible for us to come to you with an authority without the permission of Allah, and therefore, let the believers put their trust in Allah.
And what (reason) have we that we should not put our trust in Allah when He has guided us to our ways? And we will definitely be patient on the harm which you do to us, and therefore, let those who trust, put their trust in Allah.”
And those who did not believe said to their messengers, “We will definitely drive you out from our land or else you should return to our religious dictates.” So their Fosterer communicated to them, “We will definitely destroy the unjust,
and We will definitely make you dwell in the land after them.” That’s for him who fears standing before Me and fears My threat.
And the (messengers) sought for victory, so every compelling opponent was defeated.
Hell is before him and he will be made to drink from boiling water.
He will drink it little by little but he will not be able to swallow it, and death will come to him from every place yet he will not die, and before him there will be a harsh punishment.
The likeness of those who do not believe in their Fosterer (is like those) whose works will be like ashes on which the wind blows hard on a stormy day. They will not have power on anything of that which they earned. That (in fact), will be going far astray (from success).
Do you not see that Allah created the skies and the earth in reality? * If He wills He can remove you and bring in a new creation, * The universe is real, not an illusion.
and that is not mighty for Allah.
And they will all appear before Allah. Then the weak will say to those who were considered great, “We were your followers, so can you keep us safe from anything of Allah’s punishment?” They will say, “Had Allah guided us we would have guided you, (now) it is the same to us whether we are impatient or patient, there is no way of escape for us.”
And the devil will say after the affair is decided, “Allah certainly promised you the promise of truth and I promised you but went against (my promise to ) you, and I had no authority over you except that I invited you and you responded to me, so do not blame me but blame yourselves. I cannot help you (on your cries for help) nor can you help me I certainly rejected that (act of yours) in which you earlier associated me as a partner (with Allah). Those who are unjust, for them there is certainly a painful punishment.”
And those who believed and did righteous works will be made to enter the gardens beneath which rivers flow. They will stay therein by the permission of their Fosterer. Their greeting therein will be ‘Peace’.
Did you not consider how Allah sets forth a similitude? A good statement is like a good tree, the root of which is firm and the branches of which are in the sky.
It gives its fruit in every season by the permission of its Fosterer, and Allah sets forth similitude’s for mankind, that they may be mindful.
And (another) similitude: A bad statement is like a bad tree (which can be easily) uprooted from the earth’s surface, it has no stability.
Through the confirmed statement Allah establishes those who believe, (both) in the life of this world and in the hereafter, and Allah leaves the unjust in error and Allah does what He wills.
Did you not see those who exhibit ingratitude in exchange for Allah’s favours and make their people alight into the home of loss,
hell, they will enter it and it is an evil place (and time for) staying.
And they set up equals with Allah that they may mislead (people) from His way. Say, “Enjoy yourselves, but you are certainly destined for hell.”
Say to My servants who believe, that they should establish worship (salat) and spend from that which We have provided them, secretly and publicly, before the coming of a day in which there will be neither (mutual) trade nor friendship.
Allah is He Who created the skies and the earth and sent down water from the sky, then through it He brought forth (many varieties) of fruits (as) provision for you. And He compelled the ships (to follow His laws) and thereby sail in the sea by His command for your (service), and He compelled the rivers (to follow His laws) for your (service).
And He compelled the sun and the moon (to follow His laws) constantly for your (service) and compelled the night and the day (to follow His laws) for your service .
And He gives you everything which you ask from Him and if you count Allah’s favours you will not be able to compute them. Man is certainly unjust, ungrateful.
And when Ibrahim said, “My Fosterer ! make this city secure and save me and my sons from worshipping idols.
My Fosterer ! they have misled many of the mankind, so whoever follows me is of me and whoever disobeys me, then certainly You are Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
Our Fosterer ! I have settled (some) of my off-spring in a valley without cultivation, near Your Sacred House, our Fosterer ! that they may establish worship (salat), so make the hearts of mankind to incline towards them, and provide them with fruits that they may be grateful.
Our Fosterer ! You certainly know that which we hide and that which we make public and nothing is hidden from Allah (whether) in the earth or in the sky.
Praise is due only for Allah Who has granted me in old age, Ismael and Ishaq, my Fosterer is certainly the Hearer of prayer.
My Fosterer ! make me one who establishes worship (salat) and (also) from my offspring. Our Fosterer ! and accept my prayer.
Our Fosterer ! protectively forgive me and my parents and the believers on the day the account (of deeds) will be established.”
And do not think that Allah is unaware of that which the unjust do. He only gives them time till the day on which the eyes will stare (in horror),
(they will be) running with their heads raised without blinking their eyes and their hearts (will be) vacant.
And warn mankind of the day when the punishment will come upon them, then those who were unjust would say, “Our Fosterer ! give us time till a near term, we will respond to your invitation and we will follow the messengers.” (They will be answered), “Did you not swear before, that there will be no decline for you?
And you dwelt in the dwellings of those who were unjust to themselves and it was made clear to you how We dealt with them and We had set forth similitude’s for you.”
And they had planned their plan, and their plan is with Allah, and if their plan was implemented (it would have been sufficient) for moving away mountains thereby.
So do not think that Allah will go against His promise to His messengers, Allah is certainly Mighty, Capable of retribution.
The day on which the earth will be changed to other than the (present) earth and the skies (too), and they will appear before Allah, the One, the Omnipotent.
And on that day you will see the criminals linked together in chains,
their shirts made of pitch and the fire covering their faces,
that Allah may reward every soul (according to) that which it earned. Allah is certainly Quick (at settling) the account.
This is a message for mankind that they may be warned thereby and that they may know that He is certainly one God, and that men of understanding may be mindful.
