The Revelation in Knowledge of this Book is from Allâh, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
Surely it is We Who have revealed the Book to you in all truth. Now, therefore, worship Allâh (in the way He wants us to worship Him).
Is it not to Allâh that pure devotion must be due? Those who choose guardians besides Him (say): “We worship these idols for no reason other than that they would bring us nearer to Allâh”. Verily, Allâh will judge between them concerning all matters on which they differ. Surely Allâh holds back the light of His inspiration from anyone who attributes falsehood to Him and has no tendency to live by Faith.
And had Allâh intended to take a son, He would have chosen whom He willed out of those whom He created. All Glory Be To Him! He is Allâh, the One true God and the Omnipotent.
He created the heavens and earth for a genuine reason. He causes the night to enfold completely the day, and causes the day to enfold completely the night. He has made the sun and the moon subservient, each of them running for an appointed term. He is truly the Almighty, the Oft-Forgiving.
He created you from a single Human person, then from (him) He made his mate. He sent down for you eight pairs of cattle. He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, in threefold darkness. This is Allâh, your Lord. To him belongs the Sovereignty. There is no other god beside Him. How, then, can you diverge (from the truth)?
If you refuse to yield to the Truth, then (you’ll need know that) Allâh is most certainly Self-sufficient above all need of you. And He is not pleased with the persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth from His servants. And if it happens that you show gratitude, He will be pleased with it from you. No bearer of a burden will bear the burden of another. To your Lord will you then be returned, and He will inform you of whatever you used to do. Most certainly He has full knowledge of what is stored up in the hearts.
And When misfortune touches a man, he supplicates to his Lord and turns to Him in repentance . Then, when He bestows on him a boon from Him, he forgets that for which he had just supplicated and sets up rivals to Allâh so as to deceive others into going away from His path. Say: “Enjoy your self for a while in your persistent and purposeful denial of the Truth. Most surely you are of the Denizens of Hell.
Or, is he who devoutly worships (Allâh) during the hours of the night, prostrating (himself) and standing (in prayer), taking heed of the Hereafter, and putting his hope in the Mercy of his Lord (equal to one who is spiritually blind)? Say: "Are those who pursue spiritual knowledge equal to those who lack the knowledge and awareness?" Only those who are highly intelligent people will take heed.
(Declare what Allâh says): "O' servants of Mine who live by Faith! Act piously towards your Lord! For those who pursue righteousness and perfection in Faith in this worldly life, there is a goodly reward. And (remember that) the land of Allâh is vast enough (to emigrate if you are wrongly treated because of your faith). Verily, those who cling to patience will be given their reward in full without any measure.
Say: “I’m commanded to worship Allâh alone.
And I am commanded (also) to be the first of those who wholly submit (themselves to the authority of Allâh ).”
Say: “I fear, if I refuse to yield to the authority of my Lord, the penalty of a great day.”
Say: “I do worship Allâh (in the way He wants us to worship Him). .
Now, therefore, worship (& venerate) whatever you desire beside Him! Say: "Most surely the (greatest) losers are the ones who will lose their own selves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Emphatically, that is the tremendous loss.”
They shall have layers of Fire above and beneath them. This is how the servants of Allâh are intimidated by Him. O’ My servants! Now, therefore, act piously.
And as for those who completely avoid the worship of the fabled gods and turn to Allâh in repentance, they will receive the glad tidings (of salvation). Now, therefore, announce the glad tidings to My servants,
Who listen attentively to what is said and adhere to the best if it. It is these whom Allâh has graced with enlightenment. It is these that are endowed with high intelligence and great illumination.
Can he, then, against whom the sentence of retribution has become due, be given guidance? Can you save one who is already in the Fire?
But as for those who live before the Face of their Lord, they will be in lofty mansions built one above the other, beneath which rivers flow. (This is) the Promise of Allâh (to them). Allâh will never fail in His Promise.
Have you not seen how Allâh sends down water from the sky and makes it to penetrate the earth to emerge as flowing springs? Then He brings forth with it plants of different colors, then they shrivel and so you could see them turning yellow, then He makes them chaff. Most surely in this, there is an admonition for those who are endowed with high intelligence and great illumination.
Is one whose heart Allâh has expanded to embrace Islam and so he follows a light from his Lord (like the one who is spiritually blind)? Woe, then, betide those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the Praise of Allâh! They are in utter deception!
Allâh has sent down the finest rhetoric in the form of a Book, harmonious in its oft-repeated. It makes the skin of those who show honor and proper reverence for Allâh to crawl, and then it softens their skins and hearts by celebrating the Praise of Allâh and declaring His glory. Such is the inspiration of Allâh by which He inspires whomever He wills of His servants to yield to (the truth), but the one whom He allows to fall away from the Faith has no one to lead him to the Truth.
Is, then, who shields himself with his face against the evil of the torment of the Day of Resurrection (like one who is admitted into Al- Jannah)? It will be said to those who abandoned Faith in favour of their own whims "Taste now (the dire consequence of) what you used to earn."
Those who were before them were inclined to deny (their Messengers), and so the punishment unexpectedly struck them while you are totally heedless (of its arrival).
So Allâh made them to taste the (flavor of) ignominy in this worldly life, but the punishment of the Hereafter is far greater- if they only know!
We have set forth every kind of similitude in this Qur’ān for the people so that they may receive admonition (& yield to the Truth).
(It is) an Arabic Qur’ān without fault so that they may act piously.
Allâh sets forth a similitude: There is a slave in whom are many partners at variance with each other, and there is another slave belonging exclusively to one man - are they equal in comparison? Al praise is due to Allâh! Nay, but most of them lack of the Knowledge.
Most surely you are destined to die, and most surely, they, too, are destined to die:
Then indeed, on the Day of Resurrection, you will all, dispute concerning your differences before your Lord .
Who then does greater evil than one who attributes falsehood to Allâh and denies the Truth after it has reached him (through the Messenger)? Is it not Gehenna a suitable abode for those who have no tendency to live by Faith?
And he who brings the Truth and he who affirms it - such are the Pious.
They will have whatever they desire with their Lord. That is the reward of those who pursue righteousness and perfection in Faith:
So that Allâh may acquit them of the worst of what they did and give them their reward for the best of what they used to do.
Is not Allâh Sufficient for His servant? They seek to frighten you with their idols they set up beside Him! Whomever Allâh allows to fall away from the Truth, there is no one that can lead him to the Truth.
And the one whom Allâh inspires him to yield to the truth, there is no one that can deceive him into going away from the truth. Is not Allâh Almighty, the Lord of Retribution?
And if it happens that you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth. They will surely reply: "Allâh". Say: "Why then do you call upon (these idols) instead of Allâh? If Allâh intended any adversity for me, could they relieve such an adversity? If He intended to show me some Mercy, could they withhold His Mercy?" Say: “Allâh is Sufficient for me. In Him, let those who trust put their trust.”
Say: “O’ my people! Act according to your position. Verily I am acting, and soon you will know
To whom will come a punishment that will humiliate him, and on whom the everlasting punishment will descend.”
Verily, We have sent down to you the Book for mankind in truth. So whosoever walks on the path of the Truth, it is only for his own benefit . And whosoever deviates form the path of truth, it is only for his own loss. And you are not a guardian over them to take full responsibility for their affairs.
It is Allâh Who gathers the souls (of the human beings) at the time of their death, and those which have not died yet during their sleep. Then He withholds those (souls) for which He has ordained death and releases the rest till an appointed term. Surely, in this, there are Signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for people who persist in meditation.
Or, have they taken others as intercessors instead of Allâh? Say: "What! Even though they possess no power over anything, nor do they have the ability to perceive and understand.
Say: "To Allâh belongs all intercession. His is the Absolute Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. Then to Him you will be brought back.”
And When Allâh alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who don’t believe in the Hereafter are filled with revulsion. But when others beside Him are mentioned, they restore their joy.
Say: "O’ Allâh, the Originator of the heavens and the earth who has the full knowledge of the unseen and the visible. It is You will Who judge between Your servants regarding all matters on which they were inclined to differ."
On the Day of Resurrection, if those who abandoned Faith in favour of had possessed all that is in earth, even twice as much, they would have hoped to offer it as redemption from the woeful torment when Allâh would bring to light that which they had never reckoned.
There will appear to them (clearly) the evil deeds of what they earned, and they will be encompassed by that which they used to mock.
So when a misfortune touches the man, he calls on Us. But, once We bestow a grace upon him, he says: “I have achieved this because of the knowledge (that I possess).” Nay, it is only a temptation, but most of them are suffering from a lack of vision.
Indeed, Those who were before them said the same things, but what they used to earn did not profit them.
So all the evil deeds that they had earned struck them. And those the who abandoned Faith in favour of their own whims among them will be struck by all the evil deeds of what they have ever earned. And they will never be able to elude (the punishment).
Do they not see that Allâh spreads out and straitens sustenance to whomever He wills? Surely in this, there are Signs (of Allâh’s power &glory) for a people who live a life of Genuine Faith.
O’ my servants who have acted extravagantly against their own selves! Don’t despair of the Mercy of Allâh. Most certainly Allâh will be Merciful toward all the iniquities. Most certainly He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Now, therefore, turn in repentance to your Lord and wholly submit (to His Authority) before the punishment comes on you, then you will not be helped.
And yield to the best of that which is sent down to you from your Lord before the punishment unexpectedly comes on you while you are totally heedless of (its arrival ).
Lest any person should say: "Woe betide me! I have failed to fulfill my duties to Allâh! Surely I was among those who mock at (the Revelation in knowledge of Allâh).”
Or, lest he should say: "If I had yielded to the Full Knowledge of the Truth which Allâh has already given to His servants, I would certainly have been among the Pious.
Or, lest when he sees the punishment should say: “If only I had another chance, I would certainly be among those who pursue righteousness and perfection in Faith.
Aye! My Signs (which demonstrate My power & glory) were shown to you, but you refused to admit the truth of them and displayed an arrogant attitude (towards the Authority of Allâh), simply because you were of those who have no tendency to live by Faith.
And on the Day of Resurrection, you will see those who attributed falsehood to Allâh, their faces blackened. Is there not in Gehenna an abode for those who display an arrogant attitude (towards the Authority of Allâh).
And Allâh will save those who acted piously (and guarded themselves against falling into deception) because of their achievements. No evil shall touch them, nor shall they ever grieve.
Allâh is the Creator of all things and He is Guardian over all things.
His are the keys of (the treasures of) the heavens and the earth. As for those who refuse to yield to the Revelation in the Knowledge of Allâh, they are the ones who are doomed to face perdition.
Say: “O’ ye who lack the knowledge (of Allâh)! Is it other than Allâh that you command me to worship'?"
And certainly it has been revealed to you, just as it was revealed to those who were before you, that if you associate partners with Allâh, then all all your good deeds will be nullified and you will surely be among those who are doomed to face perdition.
Nay! But worship Allâh (in the way He wants us to worship Him), and be among those who show show sincere gratitude (to Him).
And they have not venerated Allâh in accordance with what is appropriate for Him. The whole earth will be in His grip on the Day of Resurrection, and heavens will all be rolled up in His right Hand! All Glory Be To Him! Highly Exalted is He above whatever they associate (with Him).
And the will be blown on the Day of Resurrection, and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth will fall dead, except whom Allâh wills. Then it will be blown again, behold, they will be standing and looking on!.
And the earth will shine bright with the Light of its Lord. The Book (of Deeds) will be laid down. The Prophets and the witnesses are brought forward. And judgement will be made between them with absolute fairness, and they will not be wronged.
Each human person will be paid in full according to what has has done, for He has the full knowledge of whatever they do.
Those who willfully refuse to yield to the Truth will be driven to Gehenna in troops, till, when they reach it, its gates thereof will be opened. And Its keepers will say to them: “Did not there come to you Messengers from among you, reciting to you the Verses of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours?" They will say: “Yea, but the Word of the punishment has been proven true against those who have no tendency to live by Faith."
It will be said (to them): "Enter the gates of Gehenna and dwell therein forever”- Evil is the abode of those who used to display an arrogant attitude (towards the Authority of Allâh).
But those who used to act piously towards their Lord will be driven to Al-Jannah, in troops, till, when they reach it, its gates thereof will be opened. And Its keepers will say to them: ”Peace be upon you. You lived a pure life, so enter and dwell therein forever.”
And they will say: “All praise is due to Allâh, Who has fulfilled His Promise to us and has made us inherit the land of Al- Jannah so we can dwell in it wherever we desire. How marvelous is the reward of the Pious workers!
And You will see the Angels surrounding the Throne (of Allâh) from all round, glorifying the praise of their Lord. And judgement will be made between them with absolute fairness , and it will be said: “All praise is due to Allâh, the Lord of all being!"
