41:1  H. M
41:2  (It is a) Descent from Ar-Rahman, Ar-Rahim
41:3  Kitab (‘Book’) — its Verses have been fully detailed — Quran (‘Reading’) in Arabic — (meant) for a nation who know (and appreciate the importance and utility of the Divine Book)
41:4  Bashir (‘the transmitter of glad tidings’. This is used as an attribute for the Divine Scripture), and Nazeer (‘Warner’. This also is an attribute for Allah’s Book); but most of them have remained unconcerned (of this Book), so they do not listen
41:5  And they said: “Our hearts are under coverings against that to which you invite us; and in our ears is a blockage; and between us and between you is a barrier. So carry on your deeds, surely we are those who act (according to our inclinations and knowledge).”
41:6  Say: “Certainly, what (is a fact is that) I am a human like you. It is inspired in me that what (is true is that) your Ilah (God) is One Ilah. So be steadfast to Him and invoke Him for forgiveness. And woe to Al-Mushrikun
41:7  those who do not pay Zakat, and they, regarding the Hereafter — they (are) disbelievers
41:8  Truly, those who have Believed and have performed righteous deeds — for them is a reward not prohibited
41:9  Say: “Do you verily, indeed disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two aeons; and you set up unto Him rivals? This is Nourisher-Sustainer to the worlds .
41:10  And He placed therein firm mountains from above it (i.e., projecting on its surface and also penetrating beyond its superficial strata), and He blessed inside it (provisions for life) and provided in measured needs therein its foods in four aeons — equally available for (all) seekers
41:11  Then He paid (His) attention towards the heaven while it is smoke. So He said to it and to the earth: “Come (submit) both of you, willingly or unwillingly.” Both said: “We both have come willingly.”
41:12  So He perfected them (into) seven (many) heavens in two aeons and Auha in each heaven its way (of functioning). And We adorned the nearest heaven with Masabeeh and as protective (missiles that shoot the devils. See Verse No. 67/5). This (is the) assessment of the All-Mighty, the All-Knower
41:13  But if they have bypassed (Al-Kitab and have remained heedless of its Teachings), then say (to them): “I have warned you of a Saiqa similar in nature to the Saiqa meant for ’Ad and Samud (people) "
41:14  When the Messengers came to them from in between their hands (i.e., who passed away before them) and from behind them [who came after them (saying)] that: “Pay not obedience but to Allah (Alone).” They said: “If Our Nourisher-Sustainer willed, He would have surely sent down angels. So indeed we, with what you have been sent therewith (are) disbelievers.”
41:15  So, as for ’Ad (people) — so they indulged in arrogance in the land without right and they uttered: “Who is mightier than us in strength?” See they not then, that Allah Who has created them — He (was and is) mightier than them in strength. And they used to argue and dispute regarding Ayaatina
41:16  So We directed against them a furious wind (storm) during the days (becoming) bad omen (unto them) in order that We may make them taste a punishment of humiliation and disgrace in the life of this world. And surely, the torment of the Hereafter is more disgracing; and they will not be helped
41:17  And as for Samud, so We gave them guidance but (afterwards) they preferred blindness over guidance; so Saiqa proceeding as a humiliating punishment overtook them because of that which they used to earn (through their beliefs and actions)
41:18  And We saved (and rescued) those who had Believed, and they used to be obedient
41:19  And the Day, are made to assemble the enemies of Allah, at the Fire; — so they will be set in groups —
41:20  until when as they approached it their hearing and their eyes and their skins brought evidence against them as to what they used to do
41:21  And they said to their skins: “For what you have given evidence against us?” They said (in reply): “Allah has made us to speak, He Who made all things to speak”. And He has created you the first time, and to Him you are made to return
41:22  And you had not been hiding that your hearing (i.e., the ears) may give evidence against you, and nor your eyes and nor your skins. But you thought that Allah does not know much of what you do
41:23  And this (had been) to you your thought which you harboured regarding your Nourisher-Sustainer. That (thought) has destroyed you, so you have become out of those who have lost
41:24  And (even) if they showed patience, yet the Fire is their abode. And if they bring an excuse, then they are not whose excuse is entertained
41:25  And We have assigned them (devils as) intimate companions (in this world), so they have made fair-seeming to them what is between their hands (i.e., in front of them) and what is behind them (i.e., , what awaits them); and the decree against them has become true (just like) in communities that surely passed before them out of Jinns and mankind. Indeed they were losers
41:26  And those who have disbelieved (in Al-Kitab) said: “Do not listen to this Al-Quran and make disturbance therein, so that you may prevail ”
41:27  So surely, We shall cause those who have disbelieved to taste a severe torment; and We shall surely reward them the worse of what they used to do
41:28  This is the recompense of the enemies of Allah. The Fire — for them therein is the lasting home — a recompense because they used to argue and dispute against Ayaatina
41:29  And those who have disbelieved said: "Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Show us those among jinns and mankind who led us astray. We shall take them both under our feet (to crush and disgrace them), so that they become the lowest (of the low).”
41:30  Verily, those who said, 'Our Nourisher-Sustainer is Allah,' and then remained steadfast, on them descend angels (at the time of death, saying) that: “Fear not and nor feel anxiety, depression or grief; and receive the glad-tidings of the Garden (of Paradise) which you have been promised (by your Allah)
41:31  We (have been) your friends in (your) worldly life and (so will be) in the Hereafter. And for you therein (will be available) whatever your Anfus (personalities) desire, and for you therein (will be made available) whatever you ask for —
41:32  as a welcome hospitality from Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful ”
41:33  And who is better in statement than that who invited towards Allah (i.e., towards the Book of Allah) and performed righteous deeds and said: “Surely, I am (one) of the Muslims.” [Please note that associating ourselves to any sect whatsoever amounts to becoming polytheists (mushriks) in the Sight of Allah. All sectarian divisions whether of the past like Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Zoroastrians etc. or of the present like Sunnis, Shias, Ahmadis etc. are refered to by one and the same single word in the holy Scripture]
41:34  And does not become equal (every) good deed, and nor (every) evil, (there are ranks and categories to every action). Repel (the evil) with that which is a better (than normal and usual behaviour) then immediately that one — there is enmity between you and between him — (may become) as if he is (to you) a sincere friend
41:35  But it is not granted except to those who remained steadfast; and it is not granted but to a possessor of supreme share (from the Message in Allah’s Scripture)
41:36  And if whatever reaches you as an evil whisper from the devil as a whisper, then seek refuge with Allah. Verily He: He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower
41:37  And from among His Ayaat (Signs) are the night, and the day, and the sun, and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun, and nor to the moon; but prostrate to Allah Who created those (marvels) if you, to Him Alone, you pay obedience
41:38  Then if they indulged in arrogance out of pride, then those (angels) who are in the close presence of your Nourisher-Sustainer, they swiftly pay Him obedience night and day and they do not feel tired
41:39  And among His Signs (is this), that you see the earth barren, but when We sent down over it (rain-) water, it stirred up to life and flourished. Surely, That Who revived it (becomes) a Sure Life-Giver for those who have died! Indeed, He is All-Capable over every thing
41:40  Verily, those who behave in crookedness in Ayaatina, they do not hide (their personalities) from Us. Is then, that one who is cast in the Fire better, or that who comes secure on the Day of Resurrection? (Continue to) do what you desired. Verily, He is All-Seer of what you do
41:41  Verily, those who have disbelieved in Az-Zikr (‘The Message’) when it approached them — and verily, it is indeed Kitabun Aziz (‘A Mighty Book’)
41:42  Batil (false, forged or unauthentic material) does not come to it from in between its two hands (i.e., from its front) and nor from behind it. (It is a) Descent proceeding from All-Wise, Worthy of all praise
41:43  A thing is not said to you except what has indeed been said to the Messengers before you. Verily, your Nourisher-Sustainer is indeed Possessor of Forgiveness, and (also) Possessor of a painful retribution
41:44  And if We had made it a Quran in a not fully comprehensive language (i.e., any language other than Arabic), people would have said: “Why not its Verses are armed with details? What! (A Book) not in Arabic, and (the Messenger) an Arab?” Say: “It is for those who have Believed — a Guide and a Healing. As for those who do not believe, there is a block in their ears. And it (i.e., the Quran) unto them is blindness, and they feel they are called from a very far away place”. [They are so ignorant and misinformed of the Quran that when its teachings are brought before them, their eyes get blind and their ears appear partially deaf]
41:45  And surely, indeed We delivered Musa Al-Kitab (‘The Book’). Then a dispute was created (by people about the teachings) therein. And if a statement had not already proceeded from your Nourisher-Sustainer (that Final Judgment shall be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection), surely, (their case) would have been decided between them. And truly, they are indeed in grave doubt thereof
41:46  Whosoever did righteous deed (it is) for (the benefit of) his ownself; and whosoever did evil, so it is against her (i.e., against his own Nafs or self). And your Nourisher-Sustainer is not (at all) unjust to (His) Abeed
41:47  To Him is referred the knowledge of the Hour (by all men of learning). And does not come out of its sheath any of the fruits; and does not conceive any one of the females, and nor she delivers, but with His Knowledge. And the Day He calls unto them: “Where (have gone) My (so-called) partners?” They said: “We have informed You — there is not from amongst us (any one) out of a witness (to our false claims that You had partners in Your Dominion).”
41:48  And vanished from them whom they used to invoke in (times) before. And they have realised (that there is) not for them (any) out of a place of refuge
41:49  A human being does not get tired of an invokation (or prayer) for good; and if an affliction touched him, then (immediately he is that) who has given up all hope, (and one) who has gone in despair
41:50  And surely, if We gave him a taste of mercy from Us after an adversity that has touched him, he will surely say: “This (came) to me (as a right due to my personal capabilities and qualities), and I think not the Hour as an event that (must) establish (itself). And (even) if I returned to my Nourisher-Sustainer, surely for me with Him (will be) indeed something extremely good.” So surely, We shall inform those who have disbelieved about what they did; and surely, We will make them taste out of a severe torment
41:51  And when We favoured a human being, he deviated, and he bowed to his own inclination. And when an adversity inflicted him, then instantly (he is one) involved in long supplications
41:52  Say: “Have you (ever) thought if (this Al-Kitab or Al-Quran) be from Allah but you disbelieved therein, (then) who is more astray than that? He is in opposition, far (and remote).”
41:53  Soon We show them Our Ayaat (Signs) in the universe, and in their own persons, until becomes clear unto them that it is Al-Haqq (‘The Truth’). Does it not then suffice with your Nourisher-Sustainer that He (remains) a Witness over all things?
41:54  Beware! Truly, they are in doubt concerning the meeting with their Nourisher-Sustainer. Be careful! Surely, He is All-Comprehending to every thing
