42:1  H. M. (Ha. Mim.)
42:2  A. S. Q. (Ain. Sin. Qaf.)
42:3  That is how God the powerful, the wise, reveals to you (Muhammad) and to those before you.
42:4  Whatever is in the skies and whatever is on the earth belong to Him, and He is the superior, the great.
42:5  The skies are about to tear apart from above them, and angels glorify their Lord with praise and ask forgiveness for whoever is on the earth. In fact, God is the forgiving, the merciful.
42:6  And those who take protectors/masters besides Him, God guards over them, and you are not their advocate.
42:7  And that is how We revealed an Arabic Quran to you, so that you warn (people of) the mother town (Mecca) and its vicinity, and you warn of the day of assembly which there is no doubt in it, a group in the garden and a group in the burning fire.
42:8  And if God wanted, He would have made you a single community (of faith), but He admits anyone He wants into His mercy. And the wrongdoers have no protector and no helper.
42:9  Or have they taken protectors/masters besides God? Whereas God is the protector and He gives life to the dead and He is capable of everything.
42:10  And anything you disagree about, then its judgment (and decision) is with God. That is God, my Lord, I trust in Him and I turn to Him (in repentance).
42:11  Creator of the skies and the earth, He made spouses for you from yourselves, as well as mates for livestock, by which He multiplies (and disperses) you in that. There is nothing like Him, and He hears all, sees all.
42:12  The keys of the skies and the earth belong to Him, He increases and decreases the provision for anyone He wants. Indeed He knows everything.
42:13  He legislated for you the way of life (religion) that He instructed Noah to it, and what We revealed to you, and what We instructed Abraham and Moses and Jesus to it, to uphold the religion and do not become divided in it. What you invite them to it, is difficult for the idolaters. God chooses anyone He wants for Himself, and He guides to Himself anyone who turns (in repentance).
42:14  And they only became divided after knowledge came to them because of jealousy between them. And if it was not for a word that previously came from your Lord for a limited period, it would have been judged between them. And indeed those, who were made to inherit the book after them, are in a serious doubt about it.
42:15  So invite to that (observing religion and not being divided in it), and stand firm as you were ordered, and do not follow their desires, and say: “I believe in whatever book/mandate that God has sent down, and I am ordered to be just (and fair) between you, God is our Lord and your Lord, our deeds are for us and your deeds are for you, there is no argument between us and you, God brings us together, and the final return is to Him.”
42:16  And those who argue about God after they have answered Him, their argument is invalid with their Lord, and anger (of God) is upon them, and they will have a severe punishment.
42:17  God is the One Who sent down the book and the scale (of good and bad) with truth. And how would you know, the Hour may be near!
42:18  Those who do not believe in it want to rush it, and those who believe are afraid of it and they know that it is indeed the truth. In fact, those who dispute about the Hour are indeed are lost far (from the right path).
42:19  God is nice to His servants, He provides for anyone He wants, and He is the strong, the powerful.
42:20  Anyone who desires the reward of the Hereafter, We increase his reward for him, and anyone who desires the reward of this world, We give him from it, but in the Hereafter there is no portion for him.
42:21  Or do they have associates who legislate part of the religion for them, which God has not allowed that? And if it was not for the decisive word (of God), it would have been judged between them. And indeed the wrongdoers will have a painful punishment.
42:22  You see the wrongdoers afraid because of what they have earned, and it (punishment) will happen to them. And those who believed and did good will be in the meadows of the gardens, they will have whatever they want with their Lord. That is the great bounty.
42:23  That is what God gives good news (about it) to His servants, those who believe and do good. Say: “I do not ask you for any wage except for the love among the close ones (or the love of the closeness to God).” And whoever commits a good deed, We increase its goodness for him. Indeed God is forgiving, appreciative.
42:24  Or do they say: “He has made up a lie (and attributes it) to God?” Then if God wants, He would seal your heart, but God eliminates the falsehood and proves the truth with His words. Indeed He knows what is inside the chests/minds.
42:25  And He is the One Who accepts the repentance from His servants and excuses the bad deeds and knows what you do.
42:26  And He answers those who believe and do good, and He gives them more from His grace (and bounty), and the disbelievers will have a severe punishment.
42:27  And if He increases the provision of His servants, they would certainly commit injustice on the earth, but He sends down in amount that He wants. Indeed He is well-informed and observant about His servants.
42:28  And He is the One Who sends down the rain after they lost hope and He spreads His mercy. And He is the praiseworthy protector.
42:29  And among His signs is the creation of the skies and the earth and whatever creature He scattered in them. And He is capable of bringing them together when He wants.
42:30  And whatever tragedy happens to you is because of what your hands have earned, and He excuses a lot.
42:31  And you cannot weaken/escape (God) on the earth, and there is no protector or helper for you besides God.
42:32  And among His signs are the ships like mountains (that sail) in the sea.
42:33  If He wants He makes the wind stand still, then they would become motionless on its back (sea's surface). Indeed there are signs in that for every patient and thankful (person).
42:34  Or He would destroy them (the ships and their passengers) for what they have done, but He forgives a lot (of your mistakes).
42:35  And those who argue about Our signs should know that they have no way (or place) to escape.
42:36  So everything you are given is an enjoyment of this world's life, but what is with God is better and more lasting for those who believe and trust in their Lord,
42:37  and those who avoid the great sins and indecencies, and they forgive when they are angry,
42:38  and those who answer (the call of) their Lord, and perform mandatory prayer, and (conduct) their affairs by consultation among them, and spend (in God's way) from what We have provided for them.
42:39  And those who defend themselves (or take revenge) when they suffer an injustice,
42:40  (should know that) punishment of a bad deed is a bad deed like it, and anyone who excuses and rectifies then his reward is upon God. Indeed He does not like the wrongdoers.
42:41  And certainly whoever defends himself (or takes revenge), there is no way against them.
42:42  The way is only against those who do wrong to people and commit offense on the land unjustly, they will have a painful punishment.
42:43  And anyone who perseveres (and is patient) and forgives, indeed that is of the matters (requiring great) determination.
42:44  And whomever God misguides then he has no protector after Him. And you will see the wrongdoers when they see the punishment, saying: “Is there any way to return?”
42:45  And you will see them presented to it (the fire) humiliated from disgrace, looking with a secret glance. And those who believed will say: “Indeed the losers are those who lose themselves and their families on the Resurrection Day.” Be aware that indeed the wrongdoers will be in a lasting punishment.
42:46  And they have no protectors to help them besides God. And whomever God misguides, he has no way.
42:47  Answer your Lord before a day comes that there is no turning it back by God. On that day there is no refuge for you and there is no denial for you.
42:48  But if they stay away, We have not sent you as their guardian, you are only responsible for delivering (the message). And indeed when We make the human being taste from Our mercy he enjoys it, but if they suffer a tragedy because of what their hands have sent ahead then indeed the human being is ungrateful.
42:49  The rule of the skies and the earth belongs to God. He creates what He wants. He gives daughters to anyone He wants and gives sons to anyone He wants.
42:50  Or He combines them (giving them) sons and daughters, and He makes anyone He wants infertile. Indeed He is knowledgeable and capable.
42:51  And it is not for any human being that God speaks to him, except through revelation or from behind a barrier or by sending a messenger (angel) to reveal what He wants with His permission. God is indeed superior, wise.
42:52  And like that We revealed to you a revelation (or a spirit, Gabriel) by Our command. You did not know what the book is or the belief/faith is, but We made it (Quran) a light and We guide any one of Our servants that We want with it. And indeed you guide to a straight path (by this Quran),
42:53  path of God, the One that whatever is in the skies and whatever is on the earth belongs to Him. No doubt, all affairs wind up with God.
