41:1  Ha Mi
41:2  A revelation from [God], the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
41:3  a Book whose revelations are well expounded, an Arabic Quran for people who possess knowledge
41:4  proclaiming good news and a warning. Yet most of them turn away and so do not listen
41:5  And they say, Our hearts are encased against that to which you call us, and there is a heaviness in our ears, and there is a barrier between us, so do as you will and so shall we
41:6  Say, I am only a human being like yourselves. It has been revealed to me that your God is One God. So take the straight path to Him and ask His forgiveness. Woe to those who associate others with Him
41:7  who do not pay the zakat, and who deny the Hereafter
41:8  The ones who believe and perform good deeds shall have a reward which will never be withheld from them.[37]
41:9  Say, What! Do you indeed deny Him who created the earth in two Days [periods] and do you set up equals with Him? He is the Lord of the Universe
41:10  He placed firm mountains on the earth, and blessed it. He measured out its means of sustenance all in four Days; this is for those who ask for it
41:11  Then He turned to heaven when it was vapour and said to it and to the earth, Come willingly or unwillingly.They both said, We come willingly
41:12  and in two Days He formed seven heavens, and revealed to each heaven its functions; and We adorned the lower heaven with brilliant lamps [stars] and guarded it. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All Knowing
41:13  If they turn away, then say, I warn you of a lightning-bolt like the one which struck the Ad and the Thamud
41:14  when the messengers came to them from before them and behind them, saying, Worship none but God! They said, If our Lord had willed, He would have sent down angels [to us]. Therefore, we shall never believe in your message
41:15  As for the tribe of Ad, they behaved arrogantly in the land without any justification and said, Who is mightier than we in power? Did they not see that God, who created them, was mightier than they in power? Still they continued to deny Our signs
41:16  so We let loose upon them a raging wind over several inauspicious days, so that We might make them taste the torment of humiliation in the life of this world, and surely the torment of the Hereafter will be more humiliating. They shall have none to help them
41:17  As for the Thamud We offered them Our guidance, but they preferred blindness to guidance. So the lightning-bolt of the punishment of humiliation seized them on account of their misdeeds
41:18  We saved those who had attained to faith and were God-fearing
41:19  On the Day that the enemies of God shall be gathered together and driven to the Fire, they shall be formed into groups, an
41:20  when they come close to it, their ears, eyes and skins will testify against them for their misdeeds
41:21  And they will ask their skins, Why did you bear witness against us? and their skins will reply, God, who gives speech to all things, has given speech to us [as well]it was He who created you in the first instance and to Him you are [now] brought bac
41:22  you could not hide yourselves from your ears and your eyes and your skins to prevent them from testifying against you, and you thought that God would never know much of what you did
41:23  but these thoughts which you entertained concerning your Lord, have brought you to destruction, and [now] you are among the utterly lost
41:24  Even if they are patient, the Fire will still be their homes. And if they pray to be allowed to make amends, they will not be allowed to do so
41:25  We assigned to them companions who made their doings appear fair to them. But the same decree [of punishment] proved true against them, which had proved true against nations of jinn and mankind who passed away before them. Surely they were the losers
41:26  Those who deny the truth say, Do not listen to this Quran. Drown it out with noise, so that you may gain the upper hand
41:27  Therefore, We will most certainly make those who are bent on denying the truth taste a severe punishment and We will most certainly requite them according to the worst of their deed
41:28  that is the reward of the enemies of Godthe Fire will be their everlasting home, a reward for their rejection of Our revelations
41:29  Those who deny the truth will say, Our Lord, show us those jinn and men who misled us and we shall trample them underfoot, so that they may be among the lowest of the low
41:30  As for those who affirm, Our Lord is God, and then remain steadfast, the angels will descend on them, saying, Have no fear and do not grieve. Rejoice in the [good news of the] Garden that you have been promised
41:31  We are your companions in this life and in the Hereafter. Therein you shall have all that your souls desire, and therein you shall have all that you ask fo
41:32  as a rich provision from One who is ever forgiving and most merciful
41:33  Who speaks better than one who calls to God and does good works and says, I am surely of those who submit
41:34  Good and evil deeds are not equal. Repel evil with what is better; then you will see that one who was once your enemy has become your dearest friend
41:35  but no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraintno one is granted it save those who are truly fortunate
41:36  If a prompting from Satan should stir you, seek refuge with God: He is the All Hearing and the All Knowing
41:37  Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate yourselves before the sun and the moon, but prostrate yourselves before God who created them all, if it is truly Him that you worship
41:38  If they grow arrogant, [remember that] those who are with your Lord glorify Him night and day and never grow tired
41:39  Among His signs is this: you see the earth dry and barren, but when We send down on it water, it stirs and swells: most surely He who gives it life is the giver of life to the dead; surely He has power over all things
41:40  Those who distort the meaning of Our message are not concealed from Us. Who is better someone who will be thrown into the Fire or someone who will arrive in safety on the Day of Resurrection? Do as you will, He sees whatever you do
41:41  Those who reject the Reminder [the Quran] when it comes to them [are the losers] truly it is a mighty Book
41:42  falsehood shall not reach from before or from behind. It is a revelation from the Wise, the One worthy of all praise
41:43  Nothing is said to you but what was said indeed to the messengers before you; surely your Lord is the Lord of forgiveness but also the Lord of painful retribution
41:44  Had We sent this as a Quran [in a language] other than Arabic, they would have said, Why are its verses not clearly explained? What! An Arab Prophet, and a scripture in a foreign tongue? Say, It is a guide and a healing to those who believe; but for those who do not believe, there is a deafness in their ears, and a covering over their eyes: they are [as it were] being called from a very distant place
41:45  We gave Moses the Book, but differences were created concerning it: and had it not been for a word that had already gone forth from your Lord, the matter would have been decided between them; and certainly they are in grave doubt about it
41:46  Whoever does what is just and right, does so for his own good; and whoever does evil, does so to his own detriment: and God is never in the least unjust to His creatures
41:47  He alone has knowledge of the Hour [of Judgment]. And no fruit emerges from its husk, nor does any female become pregnant or give birth, without His knowledge. On the Day He will call out to them, Where are My associates? They will reply, We declare to You that none of us can bear witness to them
41:48  [the deities] they invoked before will have vanished; they will know that there is no escape
41:49  Man never tires of asking for the good things of life; but if evil fortune befalls him, he abandons all hope, giving himself up to despair
41:50  When We give him a taste of some of Our mercy, after some adversity has touched him, he is sure to say, This is my due. I do not think that the Hour is going to come. And even if I return to my Lord, He will surely reward me well. But truly We shall tell those who deny the truth [all] that they did, and shall make them suffer a hard punishment
41:51  When We grant a blessing to a man, he turns away and draws aside, but when any evil touches him, he is full of endless prayers
41:52  Say to them, Have you considered, if this Quran is really from God and you still reject it, then who could be more astray than someone who has drifted far away from the truth
41:53  We shall show them Our signs in the universe and within themselves, until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is the witness of all things
41:54  Yet they still doubt that they will ever meet their Lord. Surely, He encompasses all things
