|1||O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing.
Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling,
and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as
in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the
Torment of Allah.
among mankind is he who disputes concerning Allah, without knowledge,
and follows every rebellious (disobedient to Allah) Shaitan (devil)
(devoid of each and every kind of good).
him (the devil) it is decreed that whosoever follows him, he will
mislead him, and will drive him to the torment of the Fire. (Tafsir
mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then verily! We
have created you (i.e. Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah (mixed drops
of male and female sexual discharge i.e. offspring of Adam), then from a
clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) then from a little lump of
flesh, some formed and some unformed (miscarriage), that We may make
(it) clear to you (i.e. to show you Our Power and Ability to do what We
will). And We cause whom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed
term, then We bring you out as infants, then (give you growth) that you
may reach your age of full strength. And among you there is he who dies
(young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the miserable
old age, so that he knows nothing after having known. And you see the
earth barren, but when We send down water (rain) on it, it is stirred
(to life), it swells and puts forth every lovely kind (of growth).
|6||That is because Allah, He is the Truth, and it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who is Able to do all things.
|7||And surely, the Hour is coming, there is no doubt about it, and certainly, Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves.
|8||And among men is he who disputes about Allah, without knowledge or guidance, or a Book giving light (from Allah),
his neck in pride (far astray from the Path of Allah), and leading
(others) too (far) astray from the Path of Allah. For him there is
disgrace in this worldly life, and on the Day of Resurrection We shall
make him taste the torment of burning (Fire).
|10||That is because of what your hands have sent forth, and verily, Allah is not unjust to (His) slaves.
among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge
(i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a
trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to
disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the
Hereafter. That is the evident loss.
|12||He calls besides Allah unto that which hurts him not, nor profits him. That is a straying far away.
|13||He calls unto him whose harm is nearer than his profit; certainly, and evil Maula (patron) and certainly an evil friend!
Allah will admit those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do
righteous good deeds (according to the Quran and the Sunnah) to Gardens
underneath which rivers flow (in Paradise). Verily, Allah does what He
thinks that Allah will not help him (Muhammad SAW) in this world and in
the Hereafter, let him stretch out a rope to the ceiling and let him
strangle himself. Then let him see whether his plan will remove that
whereat he rages!
have We sent it (this Quran) down (to Muhammad SAW) as clear signs,
evidences and proofs, and surely, Allah guides whom He wills.
those who believe (in Allah and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW), and
those who are Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the
Magians, and those who worship others besides Allah, truly, Allah will
judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Verily! Allah is Witness
over all things.
you not that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever
is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the
mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawab (moving living creatures, beasts,
etc.), and many of mankind? But there are many (men) on whom the
punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allah disgraces, none can honour
him. Verily! Allah does what He wills.

Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens underneath which
rivers flow (in Paradise), wherein they will be adorned with bracelets
of gold and pearls and their garments therein will be of silk.

ill-Allah, Alhamdu lillah, recitation of the Quran, etc.) and they are
guided to the Path of Him (i.e. Allahs Religion of Islamic Monotheism),

Those who disbelieve and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, and from
Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah) which We have made (open) to (all) men,
the dweller in it and the visitor from the country are equal there (as
regards its sanctity and pilgrimage (Hajj and Umrah)). And whoever
inclines to evil actions therein or to do wrong (i.e. practise
polytheism and leave Islamic Monotheism), him We shall cause to taste a

House (the Kabah at Makkah) (saying): "Associate not anything (in
worship) with Me, (La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be
worshipped but Allah Islamic Monotheism), and sanctify My House for
those who circumambulate it, and those who stand up for prayer, and
those who bow (submit themselves with humility and obedience to Allah),
and make prostration (in prayer, etc.);"

foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant
(wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj).
they may witness things that are of benefit to them (i.e. reward of
Hajj in the Hereafter, and also some worldly gain from trade, etc.), and
mention the Name of Allah on appointed days (i.e. 10th, 11th, 12th, and
13th day of Dhul-Hijjah), over the beast of cattle that He has provided
for them (for sacrifice) (at the time of their slaughtering by saying:
Bismillah, Wallahu-Akbar, Allahumma Minka wa Ilaik). Then eat thereof
and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time.

to Allah), and whoever honours the sacred things of Allah, then that is

honours the Symbols of Allah, then it is truly from the piety of the

appointed term, and afterwards they are brought for sacrifice unto the
ancient House (the Haram - sacred territory of Makkah city).
for every nation We have appointed religious ceremonies, that they may
mention the Name of Allah over the beast of cattle that He has given
them for food. And your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God Allah), so you must
submit to Him Alone (in Islam). And (O Muhammad SAW) give glad tidings
to the Mukhbitin (those who obey Allah with humility and are humble from
among the true believers of Islamic Monotheism),
hearts are filled with fear when Allah is mentioned; who patiently bear
whatever may befall them (of calamities); and who perform AsSalat
(Iqamat-as-Salat), and who spend (in Allahs Cause) out of what We have
the Budn (cows, oxen, or camels driven to be offered as sacrifices by
the pilgrims at the sanctuary of Makkah.) We have made for you as among
the Symbols of Allah, therein you have much good. So mention the Name of
Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines (for sacrifice). Then,
when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat thereof, and
feed the beggar who does not ask (men), and the beggar who asks (men).
Thus have We made them subject to you that you may be grateful.
is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is
piety from you that reaches Him. Thus have We made them subject to you
that you may magnify Allah for His Guidance to you. And give glad
tidings (O Muhammad SAW) to the Muhsinoon (doers of good).
Allah defends those who believe. Verily! Allah likes not any
treacherous ingrate to Allah (those who disobey Allah but obey Shaitan

are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and
surely, Allah is Able to give them (believers) victory

said: "Our Lord is Allah." - For had it not been that Allah checks one
set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues,
and mosques, wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much would surely
have been pulled down. Verily, Allah will help those who help His

for Iqamat-as-Salat. (i.e. to perform the five compulsory congregational
Salat (prayers) (the males in mosques)), to pay the Zakat and they
enjoin Al-Maroof (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one
to do), and forbid Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism and all that
Islam has forbidden) (i.e. they make the Quran as the law of their
country in all the spheres of life). And with Allah rests the end of
(all) matters (of creatures).
if they belie you (O Muhammad SAW), so were belied the Prophets before
them, (by) the people of Nooh (Noah), Ad and Thamood,
|43||And the people of Ibrahim (Abraham) and the people of Lout (Lot),
the dwellers of Madyan (Midian); and belied was Moosa (Moses), but I
granted respite to the disbelievers for a while, then I seized them, and
how (terrible) was My Punishment (against their wrong-doing).
many a township have We destroyed while it was given to wrong-doing, so
that it lies in ruins (up to this day), and (many) a deserted well and
they not travelled through the land, and have they hearts wherewith to
understand and ears wherewith to hear? Verily, it is not the eyes that
grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow
they ask you to hasten on the torment! And Allah fails not His Promise.
And verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you
many a township did I give respite while it was given to wrong-doing.
Then (in the end) I seized it (with punishment). And to Me is the
(final) return (of all).

those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do
righteous good deeds, for them is forgiveness and Rizqoon Kareem

those who strive against Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.), to frustrate and obstruct them, they will be
dwellers of the Hell-fire.
did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but; when he did
recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitan (Satan) threw (some
falsehood) in it. But Allah abolishes that which Shaitan (Satan) throws
in. Then Allah establishes His Revelations. And Allah is All-Knower,
He (Allah) may make what is thrown in by Shaitan (Satan) a trial for
those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy and disbelief) and
whose hearts are hardened. And certainly, the Zalimoon (polytheists and
wrong-doers, etc.) are in an opposition far-off (from the truth against
Allahs Messenger and the believers).
that those who have been given knowledge may know that it (this Quran)
is the truth from your Lord, and that they may believe therein, and
their hearts may submit to it with humility. And verily, Allah is the
Guide of those who believe, to the Straight Path.
those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt about it (this
Quran) until the Hour comes suddenly upon them, or there comes to them
the torment of the Day after which there will be no night (i.e. the Day
sovereignty on that Day will be that of Allah (the one Who has no
partners). He will judge between them. So those who believed (in the
Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and did righteous good deeds will
be in Gardens of delight (Paradise).
|57||And those who disbelieved and belied Our Verses (of this Quran), for them will be a humiliating torment (in Hell).
who emigrated in the Cause of Allah and after that were killed or died,
surely, Allah will provide a good provision for them. And verily, it is
Allah Who indeed is the Best of those who make provision.
He will make them enter an entrance with which they shall be
well-pleased, and verily, Allah indeed is All-Knowing, Most Forbearing.

made to suffer, and then has again been wronged, Allah will surely help
him. Verily! Allah indeed is Oft-Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.
is because Allah merges the night into the day, and He merges the day
into the night. And verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
is because Allah He is the Truth (the only True God of all that exists,
Who has no partners or rivals with Him), and what they (the
polytheists) invoke besides Him, it is Batil (falsehood) And verily,
Allah He is the Most High, the Most Great.
you not that Allah sends down water (rain) from the sky, and then the
earth becomes green? Verily, Allah is the Most Kind and Courteous,
Well-Acquainted with all things.
Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth.
And verily, Allah He is Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.
you not that Allah has subjected to you (mankind) all that is on the
earth, and the ships that sail through the sea by His Command? He
withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except by His Leave.
Verily, Allah is, for mankind, full of Kindness, Most Merciful.

again give you life (on the Day of Resurrection). Verily! Man is indeed
every nation We have ordained religious ceremonies (e.g. slaughtering
of the beast of cattle during the three days of stay at Meena (Makkah)
during the Hajj (pilgrimage)) which they must follow; so let them
(pagans) not dispute with you on the matter (i.e. to eat of the cattle
which you slaughter, and not to eat of cattle which Allah kills by its
natural death), but invite them to your Lord. Verily! You (O Muhammad
SAW) indeed are on the (true) straight guidance. (i.e. the true religion
of Islamic Monotheism).
|68||And if they argue with you (as regards the slaughtering of the sacrifices), say; "Allah knows best of what you do.
|69||"Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein you used to differ."
you not that Allah knows all that is in heaven and on earth? Verily, it
is (all) in the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfooz). Verily! That is easy for
they worship besides Allah others for which He has sent down no
authority, and of which they have no knowledge and for the Zalimoon
(wrong-doers, polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah)
there is no helper.
when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, you will notice a denial on
the faces of the disbelievers! They are nearly ready to attack with
violence those who recite Our Verses to them. Say: "Shall I tell you of
something worse than that? The Fire (of Hell) which Allah has promised
to those who disbelieve, and worst indeed is that destination!"
mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully):
Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a
fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly
snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it
from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.

with all your efforts that His Name should be superior). He has chosen
you (to convey His Message of Islamic Monotheism to mankind by inviting
them to His religion, Islam), and has not laid upon you in religion any
hardship, it is the religion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham) (Islamic
Monotheism). It is He (Allah) Who has named you Muslims both before and
in this (the Quran), that the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) may be a witness
over you and you be witnesses over mankind! So perform AsSalat
(Iqamat-as-Salat), give Zakat and hold fast to Allah (i.e. have
confidence in Allah, and depend upon Him in all your affairs) He is your
Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.), what an Excellent Maula (Patron, Lord,
etc.) and what an Excellent Helper!
