In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. By (the winds)
that scatter dust.
2. And (the clouds)
that bear heavy weight of water;
3. And (the ships)
that float with ease and gentleness;
4. And those (angels)
who distribute (provisions, rain, and other blessings) by (Allah's)
5. Verily, that which
you are promised (i.e. Resurrection in the Hereafter and receiving
the reward or punishment of good or bad deeds, etc.) is surely
6. And verily, the
Recompense is sure to happen.
7. By the heaven
full of paths,
8. Certainly, you
have different ideas (about Muhammad and the Qur'an).
9. Turned aside therefrom
(i.e. from Muhammad
and the Qur'an) is he who is turned aside (by the Decree
and Preordainment ÇáÞÖÇ æÇáÞÏÑ
10. Cursed be the
11. Who are under
a cover of heedlessness (think not about the gravity of the Hereafter),
12. They ask; "When
will be the Day of Recompense?"
13. (It will be)
a Day when they will be tried (i.e. burnt) over the Fire!
14. "Taste you
your trial (burning)! This is what you used to ask to be hastened!"
15. Verily, the Muttaqun
(pious - see V.2:2) will be in the midst of Gardens and Springs
(in the Paradise),
16. Taking joy in
the things which their Lord has given them. Verily, they were
before this Muhsinun (good-doers - see V.2:112).
17. They used to
sleep but little by night [invoking their Lord (Allah) and
praying, with fear and hope].
18. And in the hours
before dawn, they were (found) asking (Allah) for forgiveness,
19. And in their
properties there was the right of the beggar, and the Mahrum
(the poor who does not ask the others)
20. And on the earth are
signs for those who have Faith with certainty,
21. And also in your
ownselves. Will you not then see?
22. And in the heaven
is your provision, and that which you are promised.
23. Then, by the
Lord of the heaven and the earth, it is the truth (i.e. what has
been promised to you), just as it is the truth that you can speak.
24. Has the story
reached you, of the honoured guests [three angels; Jibrael (Gabriel)
along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)?
25. When they came
in to him, and said, "Salam, (peace be upon
you)!" He answered; "Salam, (peace be upon
you )," and said: "You are a people unknown to me,"
26. Then he turned
to his household, so brought out a roasted calf [as the property
of Ibrahim (Abraham) was mainly cows].
27. And placed it
before them, (saying): "Will you not eat?"
28. Then he conceived
a fear of them (when they ate not). They said: "Fear not."
And they gave him glad tidings of an intelligent son, having knowledge
(about Allah and His religion of True Monotheism).
29. Then his wife
came forward with a loud voice, she smote her face, and said:
"A barren old woman!"
30. They said: "Even
so says your Lord. Verily,
He is the All-Wise, the All-Knower."
(Abraham)] said: "Then for what purpose you have come, O
32. They said: "We
have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (polytheists,
sinners, criminals, disbelievers in Allah);
33. To send down
upon them stones of baked clay.
34. Marked by your
Lord for the Musrifun (polytheists, criminals, sinners
those who trespass Allah's set limits in evil-doings by
committing great sins).
35. So We brought
out from therein the believers.
36. But We found
not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot)
and his two daughters].
37. And We have left
there a sign (i.e. the place of the Dead Sea
, well-known in Palestine) for those who fear the painful torment.
38. And in Musa
(Moses) (too, there is a sign). When We sent him to Fir'aun (Pharaoh)
with a manifest authority.
39. But [Fir'aun
(Pharaoh)] turned away (from Belief in might) along with his hosts,
and said: "A sorcerer, or a madman."
40. So We took him
and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, while he was to be
41. And in 'Ad (there
is also a sign) when We sent against them the barren wind;
42. It spared nothing
that it reached, but blew it into broken spreads of rotten ruins.
43. And in Thamud
(there is also a sign), when they were told: "Enjoy yourselves
for a while!"
44. But they insolently
defied the Command of their Lord, so the Sa'iqah
overtook them while they were looking.
45. Then they were
unable to rise up, nor could they help themselves.
46. (So were) the
people of Nuh (Noah) before them. Verily, they were a people
who were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to
47. With power did
We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness
of space thereof.
48. And We have spread
out the earth, how Excellent Spreader (thereof) are We!
49. And of everything
We have created pairs, that you may remember (the Grace of Allah).
50. So flee to Allah
(from His Torment to His Mercy Islamic Monotheism), verily,
I (Muhammad )
am a plain warner to you from Him.
51. And set not up
(or worship) any other ilahan (god) along with Allah
[Glorified be He (Alone), Exalted above all that they associate
as partners with Him]. Verily, I (Muhammad ) am a plain warner to you from
52. Likewise, no
Messenger came to those before them, but they said: "A sorcerer
or a madman!"
53. Have they (the
people of the past) transmitted this saying to these (Quraish
pagans)? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond
bounds (in disbelief)!
54. So turn away
(O Muhammad )
from them (Quraish pagans) you are not to be blamed (as you have
conveyed Allah's Message).
55. And remind (by
preaching the Qur'an, O Muhammad ) for verily, the reminding profits
56. And I (Allah)
created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me
57. I seek not any
provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for My creatures)
nor do I ask that they should feed Me (i.e. feed themselves or
58. Verily, Allah
is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, the Most Strong.
59. And verily, for
those who do wrong, there is a portion of torment like to the
evil portion of torment (which came for) their likes (of old),
so let them not ask Me to hasten on!
60. Then, woe to
those who disbelieve (in Allah and His Oneness Islamic
Monotheism) from (that) their Day which they have been promised
(for their punishment).
