22:1  O mankind! Fear your Lord. Indeed, the earthquake of the Hour is a great thing.
22:2  The day you shall see it every nursing mother will forget that which she was nursing; and every pregnant woman shall lay down her load; and you shall see mankind drunk, though they are not drunk; but the punishment of God is severe.
22:3  And among mankind is he who disputes about God without knowledge, and follows every rebellious devil;
22:4  Against him it is written down that whoever takes him for a patron, then indeed, he will lead him astray, and will guide him to the punishment of the blaze.
22:5  O mankind! If you are in doubt about the resurrection, - then indeed, We created you from dust, then from a sperm, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, shapely and shapeless, that We may make clear for you. And We make what We will rest in the wombs to a named term; then We bring you out a child, then that you may reach your strength; and of you is he who dies; and of you is he who is returned to the worst state of life, so that after knowledge, he knows nothing. And you see the earth parched, and when We send down water on it, it stirs and swells, and grows of every beautiful kind.
22:6  That is because God, He is the truth, and because He gives life to the dead, and because He is powerful over everything;
22:7  And because the Hour is coming, there is no doubt therein, and because God will resurrect those who are in the graves.
22:8  And amongst mankind is he who disputes about God without knowledge or guidance or an illuminating book;
22:9  Twisting his neck to lead astray from the way of God; for him is disgrace in the world, and We will make him taste, on the Day of Resurrection, the punishment of the burning.
22:10  That is for what your hands have sent forth, and because God is not unjust to His servants.
22:11  And among mankind is he who serves God on an edge; and if good befalls him, he is at ease with it, and if a trial befalls him, he turns on his face. He has lost the world and the hereafter. That, it is the clear loss.
22:12  He calls, besides God on what neither harms him nor profits him; - that, it is the far error.
22:13  He calls on him whose harm is nearer than his profit, - surely, an evil sovereign and surely an evil friend.
22:14  Indeed, God makes those who believe and do good works enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; indeed, God does what He desires.
22:15  Whoever thinks that God will not help him in the world and the hereafter, then let him extend a rope to the sky, then let him cut off, and let him see if his strategem will remove what he is enraged at.
22:16  And thus We sent it down, clear signs. And that God guides whom He desires.
22:17  Indeed, those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Sabaeans, and the Christians, and the Magians, and those who are idolaters - indeed, God will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection; indeed, God is witness over everything.
22:18  Do you not see that God, whoever is in the heavens prostrates to Him, and whoever is in the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the creatures, and many among mankind, and there are many on whom the punishment is justified? And whomever God abases there is none to honour him; indeed, God does what He wills.
22:19  These two disputants dispute about their Lord, but those who disbelieve, for them are cut out garments of fire, the hot water will be poured over their heads,
22:20  With it what is in their bellies shall be dissolved and the skins,
22:21  And for them are maces of iron.
22:22  Every time they desire to come out from it from pain, they are sent back into it: 'And taste the punishment of the burning!'
22:23  Indeed, God will make those who believe and do good works enter gardens beneath which rivers flow; they shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments therein shall be silk,
22:24  And they were guided to the good of the speech, and they were guided to the way of the Praiseworthy.
22:25  Indeed, those who disbelieve and who turn away from God's path and the Sacred Mosque which We have made for mankind alike, the dweller therein, and the stranger; and whoever desires therein profanation with injustice, We will make him taste of a painful punishment.
22:26  And when We settled for Abraham the place of the house, 'Do not associate anything with Me, and purify My house for those who make the circuits, and those who stand, and those who bow, those who prostrate.
22:27  'And proclaim amongst mankind the pilgrimage; let them come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they shall come from every deep ravine,
22:28  That they may witness advantages for them, and mention the name of God on well-known days over what He has provided them of the beast of cattle, So eat thereof and feed the distressed poor.
22:29  'Then let them finish the neglect of their persons, and let them fulfil their vows and make the circuit round the old house.'
22:30  That. And whoever magnifies the sacred things of God, then it is better for him with his Lord. Cattle are lawful for you, except what is recited to you; and avoid the abomination of idols, and avoid speaking falsely,
22:31  Being upright to God not associating partners with Him. And whoever associates partners with God, then it is as though he has fallen from the sky, and the birds snatch him up, or the wind blows him away into a far distant place.
22:32  That - and whoever magnifies the symbols of God, then indeed, it is from piety of the hearts.
22:33  In them are benefits for you to a named term, then the place for sacrificing them is at the old house.
22:34  And for every nation We have appointed rites, that they may mention the name of God on what He provided them of the beast of cattle; and your god is one god, so to Him submit, and give glad tidings to the humble,
22:35  Those who, when God is mentioned, their hearts are afraid, and those who are patient over what befalls them, and those who are steadfast in prayer, and of what We have provided them they spend.
22:36  And the camels We have made them for you of the symbols of God, for you therein is good; so mention the name of God upon them as they stand in a row, then when their flanks fall, then eat of them, and feed the contented and the beggar. Thus We have subjected them to you; perhaps you may give thanks.
22:37  Their meat will not reach God, nor their blood, but the piety from you reaches Him. Thus He subjected them to you that you may magnify God on what He guided you. And give glad tidings to those who do good.
22:38  Indeed, God defends those who believe; indeed, God loves not every disbelieving traitor.
22:39  Permission is given to those who fight because they have been wronged, - and indeed, God surely has power to help them, -
22:40  Those who have been driven from their homes without right, except that they said, 'Our Lord is God;' and were it not for God's repelling the people, some of them with others, cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques, in which God's name is mentioned much, would surely be destroyed. And surely God will help him who helps Him; indeed, God is surely strong, mighty.
22:41  Those who, if We establish them in the earth, are steadfast in prayer, and give alms, and command what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and God's is the end of affairs.
22:42  And if they call you liar, so verily, the people of Noah and 'Ad and Thamud denied before them,
22:43  And the people of Abraham and the people of Lot,
22:44  And the fellows of Midian; and Moses was called a liar: and I gave respite to the disbelievers then I seized them, and how was My disapproval.
22:45  And how many a city have We destroyed while it did wrong, so it has fallen down on its roofs, and a deserted well and lofty palace.
22:46  So have they not travelled in the earth, and have they hearts with which to understand, or ears with which to hear? For indeed, it is not the eyes which are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.
22:47  And they will ask you to hasten the punishment, but God will never fail in his promise; and indeed, a day with your Lord is like a thousand years of what you number.
22:48  And how many a city have I given respite to while it was doing wrong. Then I seized it and to Me is the destination.
22:49  Say, 'O mankind! I am only a clear warner to you.'
22:50  So those who believe and do good works, for them is forgiveness and a generous provision;
22:51  And those who strive to frustrate Our signs, those are the fellows of Hell.
22:52  And We have not sent before you any messenger nor prophet, but when he wished, the devil threw into his wish; but God annuls what the devil throws; then God confirms His signs, and God is knowing, wise -
22:53  That He may make what the devil throws a trial for those in whose hearts is sickness, and those whose hearts are hard; and indeed, the wrongdoers are surely in far schism -
22:54  And that those who have been given the knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, and may believe in it, and their hearts may be humble to it; and indeed, God surely guides those who believe to a straight way.
22:55  But those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt of it until the Hour comes on them suddenly, or there comes on them the punishment of a barren day.
22:56  The kingdom on that day shall be God's, He shall judge between them; and those who believe and do good works shall be in the Gardens of pleasure,
22:57  And those who disbelieve and say Our signs are lies, then those - for them is shameful punishment.
22:58  And those who fled in God's way, then were killed or died, surely God will provide them with a good provision; and indeed, God, surely He is the best of providers.
22:59  He shall surely make them enter by an entrance which they will be pleased with; and indeed, God surely is knowing, clement.
22:60  That. And whoever punishes with the like of what he has been injured with, then is outraged, God shall surely help him; indeed, God surely is pardoning, forgiving.
22:61  That is because God makes the night to enter into the day and makes the day to enter into the night, and that God is hearing, seeing.
22:62  That is because God, He is the Truth, and that what they call on beside Him, it is the false, and that God, He is the High, the Great.
22:63  Have you not seen that God sends down from the sky water, then the earth becomes green? Indeed, God is subtle, aware.
22:64  His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth; and indeed, God surely, He is the Rich, the Praiseworthy.
22:65  Have you not seen that God has subjected to you what is in the earth, and the ship that sail in the sea at His command, and He holds back the sky lest it falls on the earth except at His permission? Indeed, God to mankind is surely pitying, compassionate.
22:66  And He is the one who gave you life, then makes you die, then He will give you life - indeed, man is surely ungrateful.
22:67  For every nation We have made rites which they observe; so let them not dispute with you about the matter, and call to your Lord; indeed, you are surely on a straight guidance.
22:68  And if they dispute with you, then say, 'God is most knowing of what you do.'
22:69  God will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that in which you were disagreeing.
22:70  Do you not know that God knows what is in the heaven and the earth? Indeed, that is in a book; indeed, that for God is easy.
22:71  And they serve beside God what He has sent down no authority for, and what they have no knowledge of; and for the wrongdoers there is no helper.
22:72  And when Our signs are recited to them, clear proofs, you recognise in the faces of those who disbelieve denial; they almost attack those who recite to them Our signs. Say, 'Then shall I inform you of worse than that? The fire, God has promised it to those who disbelieve, and evil is the destination.'
22:73  O mankind! A parable is struck, so listen to it. Indeed, those on whom you call beside God could never create a fly if they gathered together for it, and if the fly should despoil them of a thing, they could not rescue it from it - weak are the seeker and the sought.
22:74  They do not value God at His true value; indeed, God is strong, mighty.
22:75  God chooses messengers from the angels and from mankind. Indeed, God is Hearing, Seeing.
22:76  He knows what is before them and what is behind them; and to God affairs return.
22:77  O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate, and serve your Lord, and do good, perhaps you may prosper;
22:78  And strive for God with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you, and has not placed upon you any straitness in the religion, - the faith of your father Abraham. He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Messenger may be a witness over you, and you may be witnesses over mankind. So be steadfast in the prayer, and give the alms, and take tight hold of God; He is your sovereign, and an excellent sovereign, and an excellent helper.
