39:1  Revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Omnipotent, the Wise
39:2  We have revealed the Book to you [Prophet Muhammad] in Truth, indeed! Worship Allah, then, consecrating your lifestyle exclusively for Him
39:3  Is it not for Allah that the pure way of life is!? And those who have taken awliya besides Allah (say), "We worship them not but that they may bring us nearer to Allah." Allah will indeed decide among them concerning what they differ in. Allah does indeed not guide anyone who is a lying suppressor of the Truth
39:4  Had Allah wanted to have a son, He could have chosen anyone He willed out of those whom He created. Glorified is He! He is Allah: the One and Only, the Almighty
39:5  He created the heavens and the earth; and it was His privilege to create them. He wraps the day over the night and wraps the night over the day. And He has subjected the sun and the moon, each to run its course until an appointed time. Is He not the Omnipotent, the Ultimate Forgiver!
39:6  He (Allah) created you from a single being (Adam), and from that single being He made its mate. And He sent down for you eight cattle in pairs.ah He creates you in your mothersԠwombs, giving you one form after another inside three layers of darkness. That is Allah, your Lord. His is the sovereignty over all things. There is none worthy of worship other than Him. So what has made you turn away
39:7  If you suppress the Truth, then indeed Allah stands in no need of you. And He likes not that His subjects should suppress the Truth. And if you are grateful, He likes that for you. None shall bear anotherճ burden. Then to your Lord is your return and He will tell you what you had been doing. He is indeed well aware of what lies hidden in your minds
39:8  When any affliction affects man, he cries out to his Lord, turning to Him alone. Then when his Lord bestows His favour upon him, he forgets what he had cried out to Him for before, and sets up rivals to Allah that they may lead others astray from His Path. Say, (O Prophet), "Enjoy your suppression of the Truth for a while. Indeed, you will be among the inmates of the Fire."
39:9  Or [take the example of] one who remembers Allah assiduously during parts of the night, prostrating and standing, fears the Hereafter, and seeks His Lord's mercy [and] ask, "Are those who know [like that one] equal to those who do not know?" Only those endowed with insight take heed
39:10  Say, "O my fellow subjects of Allah who believe, fear your Lord! A good reward awaits those who are good in this world. And Allah's earth is spacious. Indeed those who persevere shall be granted their reward without measure beyond what is due to them."
39:11  Say, "I am indeed commanded to worship Allah, consecrating my lifestyle exclusively to Him."
39:12  "And I am commanded to be the first of those who surrender to Him."
39:13  Say, "I do indeed fear the punishment of a dreadful Day if I disobey my Lord,."
39:14  Say, "Allah shall I worship, consecrating my lifestyle exclusively to Him."
39:15  "You worship whomsoever you please, then, apart from Him." Say, "Those, indeed, shall be the losers who will have lost their own selves and their kith and kin on the Day of Resurrection! Is that not obviously the real loss?"
39:16  For them, sheets of fire above them and sheets beneath them! This is what Allah warns His subjects against. "Fear me then, O you subjects of Mine!"
39:17  And those who eschew worshipping false gods and return penitently to Allah — good news for them! (O Prophet!) Give good news to My subjects
39:18  Those who pay heed to the Word [Qur'aan] and follow the the good guidance thereof. Those are the ones whom Allah has guided. And those are the ones endowed with insight
39:19  What about the one on whom the sentence of punishment is decreed — can you save the one already in the Fire?"
39:20  But for those who fear their Lord there shall be chambers built over chambers beneath which rivers flow. Allahճ promise — and never does Allah fail to fulfill His promise
39:21  Do you not see that Allah sent down water from the sky, then made it flow on earth as resources of water, and then with it He brings out vegetation of various hues. Then this vegetation withers, and you see it turn yellow, and then He reduces it to rubble? Indeed there is a lesson in this for those endowed with insight
39:22  Is one then whose head Allah has opened for Islam and who is guided by the light from his Lord (be likened to) those — woe to them — whose minds are hardened against any remembrance of Allah. Those are the ones who have obviously gone astray
39:23  Allah has sent down the best hadeeth [Qur'aan], a Book with oft-repeated passages resembling one another. Thereat shiver the skins of those that fear their Lord! And then their skins and their minds become receptive to Allahճ remembrance. That is Allahճ Guidance! He guides therewith whosoever He wills. And one whom Allah lets go astray has none to guide him
39:24  How about the one who has to face the severe punishment on the Day of Resurrection? Wrong-doers [like that one] shall be told, "Taste what you earned." acwe. Kaththaba allatheena min qablihim faatahumu alAAathabu min haythu la yashAAuroon
39:25  The peoples that lived before them denied the Truth. Then the punishment came upon them from where they knew not
39:26  And Allah made them taste disgrace in the life of this world, and certainly the punishment of the Hereafter will be much more grievous. If only they knew
39:27  And We have certainly quoted for mankind from every kind of situations [they may face] in this Qurաn for them to remember and relate from
39:28  An Arabic Qurաn, without crookedness, for them to take heed from
39:29  Allah quotes an example: a man shared by several contending masters, and another submitting to one man. Can the two be alike? All praise to Allah! But most of them know not
39:30  You (Prophet Muhammad) are mortal and so are they
39:31  Then [after death] all of you will be contesting before your Lord on the Day of Resurrection
39:32  Who, then, can be more wicked than he who lied against Allah and denied the Truth when it came to him? Is not in Hell an abode for those who suppress the Truth
39:33  And one who came with the Truth, and one who confirmed it as true — such are the ones who practice piety
39:34  For them there shall be, with their Lord, whatever they desire. That is the reward for good people
39:35  [The reward of the good people is] such that Allah remits their bad deeds and compensates them well for their good deeds
39:36  Is Allah not sufficient for His subject? They frighten you of others besides Him. And there is none to guide the one whom Allah lets go astray
39:37  And one whom Allah guides, none can lead that one astray. Is not Allah Omnipotent, with power to give a fitting retribution
39:38  And if you ask them `Who created the heavens and the earth?' they will surely reply `Allah.' Tell them, `What do you think, then, of those whom you pray to instead of Allah? If Allah should will to harm me, will those remove the harm inflicted by Him? Or if Allah should will to be merciful to me, will they be able to wit old His Mercy from me?' Say, "Allah is sufficient for me. In Him should put their trust — all those who do trust!"
39:39  Tell them, "O my people! Do what you do, as hard as you may, I too will do what I should. You shall soon know."
39:40  "[You shall soon know] who suffers a disgracing punishment and whom the everlasting punishment is due upon."
39:41  We have sent down the Book upon you [Prophet Muhammad] with the Truth for all mankind. So one who takes guidance therefrom, one does so to one's own benefit. And one, who goes astray therefrom, shall hurt only one's own self by straying. You are not a manager of their affairs
39:42  It is Allah Who takes away the souls of people at their death; and in their sleep, of those that have not died. Then He retains the souls of those against whom He had decreed death and returns those of others till an appointed time. In that indeed are signs for people who reflect
39:43  Or have they taken intercessors other than Allah? Say, "Can they intercede even if they have no power and do not even understand?"
39:44  Say, "All intercession lies with Allah. His is the absolute sovereignty over the heavens and the earth. And to Him will all of you be returned."
39:45  And when Allah alone is mentioned, minds of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink away with aversion. And when others are mentioned besides Allah, they are filled with joy
39:46  Say, "O Allah, the Maker of the heavens and the earth, the Knower of the unseen and the seen! You are the One to judge among Your subjects in matters they have been differing in."
39:47  Had the wrong-doers at their disposal the treasures of the earth in their entirety and as much besides, they would gladly offer it on the Day of Resurrection to redeem themselves from the harrowing punishment. For, there will appear to them from Allah something (sinister) they had never even imagined
39:48  The evil that they earn will be apparent to them, and that which they scoffed at shall besiege them
39:49  When an affliction affects man, he prays to Us. Then when We bestow upon him a favour from Us, he says, "I have been given this because of my knowledge." Nay! This favour is a test; but most of them know not
39:50  The people before them had said the same, but their earnings were of no avail to them
39:51  And the evil they earned hit them. The wrongdoers among these now will also be hit by the evil they earn. They will not escape
39:52  Do they not know that Allah gives the provision in ample measure to whom He wills and restricts it to whom He wills? Therein are signs for those that believe
39:53  Say, "O my fellow subjects of Allah — those who have committed excesses against themselves! Despair not of Allah's Mercy. Allah does indeed forgive all sins; He is indeed the One forgiving, merciful."
39:54  "Turn to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes to you. Thereafter, you will receive no help."
39:55  "Follow the good admonition that has been sent down for you from your Lord before the punishment catches you unawares."
39:56  Lest anyone should say, "Oh! I am so sorry for neglecting my duty towards Allah and for being among those that scoffed."
39:57  Or should anyone say, "If only Allah had guided me, I should have been among the pious."
39:58  Or should anyone say on seeing the (gravity of the) punishment, "O that I could have another chance, and then be among those who do good deeds!"
39:59  Yes (you had your chances)! My signs did come to you but you rejected them. And you behaved arrogantly and were among those who suppressed the Truth
39:60  And on the Day of Resurrection you shall see the faces, of those who had lied against Allah, blackened! Is not the (proper) abode, for arrogant people, in Hell
39:61  And Allah will save the Allah-fearing on account of their success in resisting the evil. No harm shall touch them nor shall they grieve
39:62  Allah is the Creator of everything. And He is the Manager of affairs for everything.
39:63  He (Allah) has the keys of the heavens and the earth. And those who suppress Allahճ signs — they will be the doomed ones
39:64  Say, "O you ignorant people! Do you tell me to worship anyone other than Allah!?"
39:65  And, most certainly, it was revealed to you and to all Prophets before you that if you worship anyone besides Allah, your deeds will certainly be worthless and you will certainly be among the doomed ones
39:66  So then worship Allah alone and be among those that are grateful
39:67  And they have not given Allah the Honour that is due to Him! On the Day of Resurrection the entire earth will be in His grasp, and the heavens shall be folded up in His Right Hand. Glorified and Exalted is He from all that they worship besides Him.
39:68  And the Trumpet shall be blown and all who are in the heavens and the earth shall fall down dead save those whom Allah wills. Thereafter the Trumpet shall be blown again, and then all of them will be up on their feet, looking all around
39:69  And the earth shall shine with the light of its Lord, the Book (of deeds) shall be produced, the Prophets and all witnesses shall be brought, cases among them shall be justly decided, and they shall not be wronged
39:70  And everyone shall be paid in full for all that he/she did. And Allah knows what they do
39:71  And the suppressors of Truth shall be led in groups towards Hell until when they arrive there, its gates shall be opened. And its keepers shall ask them, "Did Messengers from among yourselves not come to you, reciting Verses/signs of your Lord to you and warning you of your meeting on this Day?" They will say, "Yes, they did come!" But the sentence of punishment was bound to be executed against the suppressors of Truth
39:72  They will be told, "Enter the gates of Hell to abide eternally therein!" Evil then is the abode of those that are arrogant
39:73  And those who feared their Lord shall be led in groups towards Paradise until when they arrive there, its gates shall be opened. And its keepers shall say to them, "Peace upon you; you did well! So enter it (Paradise) to abide eternally therein."
39:74  And they will say, "The praise is for Allah Who has made His promise to us come true, and Who gave us the earth to inherit. We may now dwell in Paradise wherever we please." Excellent is the reward of those who did good deeds
39:75  And you shall see the angels thronging around the Throne, glorifying their Lord with His praise. Cases among them will be justly decided. And it will be said, "The praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds."
