31:1  Alif. La’am. Mi’em!
31:2  These are Verses of the Judicious Book,
31:3  A True Source of Enlightenment and Mercy for those who pursue righteousness and perfection in Faith,
31:4  Who establish the regular Prayer and pay Zakāt, and who have absolute Faith in the Hereafter.
31:5  Those are the ones who walk in the light of their Lord: And they are the ones who will ultimately achieve salvation.
31:6  And among people there is he who purchases idle tale so as to deceive others into going away from the way of Allâh without knowledge, and who takes it in ridicule. For such there is a humiliating chastisement.
31:7  And when Our Verses are recited to the one of them, he turns away, showing an arrogant attitude, as though he never heard them, as though there were a deafness in his ears. So inform him of a painful doom.
31:8  Indeed, for those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, there will be Gardens of Bliss
31:9  Therein they will live forever: (It is) a promise of Allâh in truth. He is the Almighty, the All-Wise.
31:10  He created the heavens without pillars as you can see, placing on the earth firm mountains lest it might quake with you and dispersing therein all kinds of beasts. And We send down water from the sky and cause all kinds of plants to grow in gracious pairs.
31:11  This is the creation of Allâh. Now show me what those (whom you idolize), other than him, have created! In fact, those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims are living in utter deception.
31:12  Verily, We endowed Luq'mān with wisdom, (commanding him to) show gratitude to Allâh. And whoever shows gratitude to Allâh does so for his own benefit. But whoever is ungrateful should know that Allâh is indeed Self-Sufficient, Worthy of all praise.
31:13  And (mention) when Luq'mān said to his son when he was admonishing him: "O’ my son, ascribe no partners to Allâh. Indeed, Polytheism is an iniquitous deed.”
31:14  And We have enjoined on man to (be kind & dutiful) to his parents. His mother bears him in atonality upon atonality, and his weaning takes two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents. To Me is the journey’s end.
31:15  And if it happens that they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, don’t yield to their whims. But accompany them in this worldly life with inspirational kindness and follow the path of those who turn to Me in repentance. Then to Me will be your return, and I will inform you of what you used to do.
31:16  (Luq'mān said): “O’ my son! even if it should be the weight of a grain of mustard-seed, and even it is (hidden) in a rock or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth, Allâh will bring it. Indeed, Allâh is All-Subtle, All-Aware.
31:17  O’ my son! establish Prayer, enjoin whatever is right, forbid whatever is evil, and cling to patience in whatever befalls you. Verily these traits are parts of resoluteness.
31:18  Don’t turn your face away from people in scorn, neither do you walk exultantly in the land. Allâh doesn’t demonstrate His own love for anyone who is arrogant boaster.
31:19  Be moderate in your walking and lower your voice. Indeed, the most distasteful sound is the braying of donkeys.”
31:20  Do you not see that Allâh has made subservient to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and copiously bestowed upon you His favors, both conspicuous and invisible? Yet of mankind is he who disputes concerning Allâh without knowledge or guidance, or an illuminating book.
31:21  And when it is said to them: “Yield to what Allâh has revealed (of the Knowledge of the Truth)”, they say: “Nay, but we only yield to that wherein we found our fathers.” What! Even though the devil is inviting them to the punishment of the blazing Fire?
31:22  And whoever submits himself to Allah while he is pursuing righteousness and perfection in faith- then he has indeed taken hold of the firmest handle. And unto Allâh belongs the sequel of all matters.
31:23  And whoever has no tendency to deny the Truth, don’t let his denial grieve you: To Us is their return, then We will inform them of what they used to do. Indeed, Allâh has full knowledge of whatever is stored up in the hearts.
31:24  We let them enjoy for a little while, then We will impose on them a vehement punishment .
31:25  And if it happens that you ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth", they will surely say: "Allâh." Say: "Praise Be To Allâh!" But most of them do lack the knowledge (of Allâh).
31:26  Unto Allâh belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and on the earth. Indeed, Allâh is the Self-Sufficient, Worthy of all praise.
31:27  If all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven more seas added to it, (were ink), the Words of Allâh would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allâh is the Almighty, All-Wise.
31:28  Your creation and your resurrection are only as (the creation and the resurrection of) a single person. Indeed, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
31:29  Have you not seen how Allâh causes the night to pass into the day and causes the day to pass into the night, and has made the sun and the moon subservient, each running to an appointed term? Surely Allâh is All-Aware of whatsoever you do.
31:30  That is because Allâh is the Ultimate Truth, and that which they idolize, other than Him, is falsehood, and because Allâh is the One Who is the Most High, the Most Great.
31:31  Do you not see how the ships run on the sea by the grace of Allâh so that He may show you some of His Sings (of power & glory) ? Verily, there are Signs in this for one who is forbearing and grateful.
31:32  When the waves enshroud them like awnings, they call upon Allâh, sincere before Him in their Faith. But when He brings them safe to land, some of them are moderate. None will venture to repudiate Our Signs except every perfidious ingrate.
31:33  O’ people, act piously towards your Lord. And be aware of a day when no father can avail his own son in aught, nor can the child avail this own father. The promise of Allâh is absolutely true. So don’t let this worldly life delude you, nor do you let the Arch-Deceiver -( Satan )- delude you concerning Allâh.
31:34  Only Allâh has the Perfect Knowledge of the Hour of Reckoning. He sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. No person knows what he will earn tomorrow or in what land he will die. Indeed, Allâh is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
