30:1  Alif Lam Mim
30:2  The Romans have been defeated—
30:3  In a nearby land: And they, after their defeat will be victorious—
30:4  Within a matter of years. The Decision is with Allah— In the Past and in the Future: And on that Day, the believers shall rejoice—
30:5  With the help of Allah. He helps whomsoever He wills; And He is the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the Most Merciful (Ar-Raheem)
30:6  (That is) the Promise of Allah, Allah never departs from His Promise: But most men do not understand
30:7  They know only the appearance (the outer things) of life in this world: But they do not care for the end of (all) things
30:8  In their own minds, do they not think (deeply)? That Allah has (indeed) created the heavens and earth and all between only for true cause and for a fixed duration: Yet really, there are many from (these) men who deny the meeting with their Lord (in the end)
30:9  Do they not travel in (and about) the earth; And see what was the end of those before them? They were superior (and) stronger than these (men): And they tilled the soil and populated it with more (men) than these (men): To them (the earlier people) came their messengers with Clear (Signs), (whom they rejected, to their own destruction): And it was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves (their own souls)
30:10  Over a long time terrible evil will be the end of those who do evil; Because they rejected the Signs (verses) of Allah, and made fun of them
30:11  It is Allah Who originates (begins) the creation; Then repeats (He) it; Then you shall be brought back to Him
30:12  And on the Day when the Hour will be established, the criminals will sink deep in despair
30:13  From their 'partners' (they have given to Allah) there will be nobody to help them, and they will refuse and reject their 'partners'
30:14  And on the Day when the Hour will be established, that Day (all men) shall be separated (according to what they have done)
30:15  Then those who have believed and done righteous deeds, such shall be esteemed and made happy in the luxury of Gardens of Delight
30:16  And those who have rejected Faith and falsely denied Our Signs (verses) and the meeting of the Hereafter— These shall be brought out for punishment
30:17  So (recite) the Glory to Allah when you enter the evening [‘Asr (early evening), Maghrib (mid evening) and Isha (night prayers)], and when you enter the morning [Faj’r (early morning) prayer]
30:18  And Praise be to Him, in the heavens and on earth; And (Glorify Him) in the late afternoon (Zuh’r prayer), and when the day begins to decline
30:19  It is He Who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living, and (it is He) Who gives life to the earth after it is dead: And like this you shall be brought out (from the dead)
30:20  And among His Signs, is this, that He created you from dust; And then (you) see— You are men spread (far and wide)
30:21  And among His Signs, is this, that He created (your) mates for you from yourselves, that you may live in joy (and peace) with them, and He has placed love and mercy between your (hearts): Surely, there are Signs in this for those who think
30:22  And among His Signs, is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference in your languages and (the difference of) your colors: Surely, there are Signs in this for those who know
30:23  And among His Signs, is the sleep that you have by night and by day, and the search that you (make for a living) from His many Gifts (in plenty): Surely, there are Signs in this for those who listen
30:24  And among His Signs, He shows the lightning, as both fear and hope, and He sends down the rain from the sky. And with it (He) gives life to the earth after it is dead: Surely, there are Signs in this for those who are wise
30:25  And among His Signs is this that heaven and earth stand by His Order: Then when He call you, by a single call, behold, you shall come up from the earth
30:26  To Him belongs every creature in the heavens and on earth: All are faithfully obedient to Him
30:27  And it is He Who originates the creation; Then (He) repeats it; And for Him it is extremely easy. To Him belongs the highest similitude (of Honor) in the heavens and earth: And He is the Almighty (Al-Aziz), the All Wise (Al-Hakeem)
30:28  He (Allah) brings out for you a similitude from your own selves (and thinking): Do you have partners from those whom your right hands possess, to be your equals to share in (your) wealth We have given to you? Do you fear them as you fear each other? Like this We explain the Signs in detail to those people who understand
30:29  No! The wrongdoers follow their (own) desires, lacking enough knowledge (and understanding). Then who will guide those whom Allah leaves them astray (to wander)? And for them there will be no helpers
30:30  So, you direct your face (and your sight) calmly, surely and truly towards the Faith: (Act on) Allah’s plan according to the Way upon which He has made mankind: (There should be) no change in the deeds for Allah. That is the (only) straight (and stable) Religion: But most of mankind has no knowledge
30:31  (O Mankind) you turn back in repentance to Him, and fear Him: Perform prayers regularly, and you do not be from those who join gods (with Allah)
30:32  (And you do not be from) those who break up their Religion, and become (divided into) sects— Each sect becoming happy in that which is its own
30:33  And when trouble comes to men, they call sincerely to their Lord, turning back to Him in repentance: But when He gives them a taste of Mercy, behold! Some of them do a part of their worship to other gods besides their Lord—
30:34  (As if) to show their thanklessness for the (gifts) We have given to them! Then enjoy (a little while); But soon you will realize (your mistakes)
30:35  Or is it that We have sent down the power (or capacity) to them, which shows them the things to which they do a part of their worship
30:36  And when We give men a gift of (Our) Mercy, they are very happy (as if in pride) with it: But when some evil comes upon them because of the doings of their (own) hands, behold! They are sorrowful
30:37  Do they not see that Allah gives the means (to live) in plenty or reduces them to anyone He pleases? Surely, in that are Signs for those who believe
30:38  So give what is due to the relatives and the needy, and the wayfarer (away from home) that is best for those who search for Allah’s Holy Face (Allah’s Divine Countenance), and such are those (who give) that will prosper
30:39  And that which you put aside in interest (as your own to be spent) to grow by using the property of (other) people, (that) will have no increase with Allah: But that which you give for charity, in search of Allah’s Holy Face, that will grow: These (are the people) who will get a reward many times larger
30:40  It is Allah Who created you: Then He has given you the things to live; Then He will cause you to die; Then He will give you life. Are there any of your (false) 'partners' that can do even a single one of these things? Glory be to Him! And High is He above the ‘partners’ they attribute (to Him)
30:41  Mischief has appeared on land and on sea because of what men have earned by their (own) hands, thus (Allah) gives them the taste of some of their actions: This way they can come back (to Him)
30:42  Say: "Travel through the earth and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them worshipped others besides Allah."
30:43  But you set your face (and your sight) to the straight (and the right) religion, before there comes the Day from Allah; (And) no chance, is there of turning away (this Day): On the Day men shall be divided (in two groups, one for the Paradise and one for the Fire of Hell)
30:44  Those who reject Faith (now) will be in pain because of that rejection (then): And those who work righteousness will spread their resting place for themselves (in heaven)
30:45  That He may reward from His Grace for those who believe and do righteous deeds. Surely, He does not love those who reject Faith
30:46  And among His Signs is this, that He sends the Winds, as the glad tidings (to sail the ships) giving you a taste of His (Gifts and) Mercy— And that the ships may sail by His Order and that you may search (for your livelihood) from His bounty, for you to be thankful (to Him)
30:47  And indeed, before you (O Prophet!), We did send (other) messengers to their (own) peoples, they came to them with (clear) proofs: Then, for those who exceeded their limits, We gave out harsh punishments: And it was due from Us to help those who believed
30:48  It is Allah Who sends the winds, and they bring up the clouds: Then He spread them in the sky as He wishes, and then break them into (small) fragments, until you see the drops of rain form within them; (And) then when He has made them reach those of His servants as He wills! Look, they are happy
30:49  And verily, even though, before they received (the rain)— just before this— they were full of sorrow
30:50  Then see and think (about it, O man!) the proof of Allah’s Mercy! How He gives life to the earth after its death: Surely, the Same (Allah) will give life to men after they are dead: And He is Able (Khadir) to do all thing
30:51  And if We (only) send a wind by which they see (their crops) become yellow— Behold! They become disbelievers
30:52  So surely, you cannot make the dead to hear, and (you) cannot make the deaf to hear, the Call (from Allah), when they show their backs and turn away
30:53  And you cannot guide (bring back) the blind from wandering (without knowing where he is going): Only those can you make (them) hear, who believe in Our Signs and submit (themselves to Allah in Islam)
30:54  It is Allah Who created you in weakness (as a helpless baby) then gave strength after the weakness, then gave weakness (again with your age) and head with gray (and torn hair) He creates what He wills, and He is the All Knowing (Al-Aleem), All Powerful (Al-Khadir)
30:55  And on the Day that the Hour (of Judgment) will be (finally) set, those who exceeded the limits will swear that they idled away no longer an hour like this they were used to being fooled
30:56  And those who are blessed with knowledge and faith will say: "Indeed you remained within Allah’s Decree, to the Day for being raised (again), and this is the Day for being raised but you—you were not aware!"
30:57  So, on that Day no excuse from them will be of use to those who exceeded the limits, and they will not be welcome to (Allah's) pleasure
30:58  Surely, for men, We have set forth in this Quran, every kind of story (with a moral in it). But if you take any Sign (of Allah) to them, the unbelievers are sure to say (to the believers): "You say nothing except useless (things)."
30:59  Thus does Allah seal up the hearts of those who do not understand
30:60  So patiently remain constant (and firm): Surely, the Promise of Allah is true: And do not let those (unbelievers) who have no certainty of faith, move you from your firmness (of your Faith)
