تَنزِيلُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبِ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَكِيمِ

(39: 1) The revelation of this Book is from Allah, the Most Mighty, the Most
Wise. 1

إِنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ فَٱعۡبُدِ ٱللَّهَ مُخۡلِصٗا لَّهُ ٱلدِّينَ

(39: 2) (O Prophet), it is We Who have revealed this Book to you with Truth. 2
So serve only Allah, consecrating your devotion to Him. 3

أَلَا لِلَّهِ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلۡخَالِصُۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُواْ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مَا نَعۡبُدُهُمۡ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَآ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ زُلۡفَىٰٓ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَحۡكُمُ بَيۡنَهُمۡ فِي مَا هُمۡ فِيهِ يَخۡتَلِفُونَۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهۡدِي مَنۡ هُوَ كَٰذِبٞ كَفَّارٞ

(39: 3) Lo, religion is exclusively devoted to Allah. 4 Your religion
is entirely consecrated to Him. As for those who have taken others than Allah
for their guardians, (they say): “We worship them only that they may bring us
nearer to Allah.”5 Allah will judge between them concerning what
they differ about. 6 Verily Allah does not guide anyone who is given
to sheer lying, is an utter unbeliever. 7

لَّوۡ أَرَادَ ٱللَّهُ أَن يَتَّخِذَ وَلَدٗا لَّٱصۡطَفَىٰ مِمَّا يَخۡلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُۚ سُبۡحَٰنَهُۥۖ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡوَٰحِدُ ٱلۡقَهَّارُ

(39: 4) If Allah had wanted to take to Himself a son, He could have chosen
anyone He wanted out of those whom He creates. 8 Glory be to Him (that
He should have a son). He is Allah: the One, the Overpowering. 9

خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ بِٱلۡحَقِّۖ يُكَوِّرُ ٱلَّيۡلَ عَلَى ٱلنَّهَارِ وَيُكَوِّرُ ٱلنَّهَارَ عَلَى ٱلَّيۡلِۖ وَسَخَّرَ ٱلشَّمۡسَ وَٱلۡقَمَرَۖ كُلّٞ يَجۡرِي لِأَجَلٖ مُّسَمًّىۗ أَلَا هُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡغَفَّـٰرُ

(39: 5) He created the heavens and the earth with Truth, 0 and
He folds up the day over the night and folds up the night over the day. He has
subjected the sun and the moon, each is running its course until an appointed
time. Lo, He is the Most Mighty, the Most Forgiving. 1

خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفۡسٖ وَٰحِدَةٖ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنۡهَا زَوۡجَهَا وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلۡأَنۡعَٰمِ ثَمَٰنِيَةَ أَزۡوَٰجٖۚ يَخۡلُقُكُمۡ فِي بُطُونِ أُمَّهَٰتِكُمۡ خَلۡقٗا مِّنۢ بَعۡدِ خَلۡقٖ فِي ظُلُمَٰتٖ ثَلَٰثٖۚ ذَٰلِكُمُ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّكُمۡ لَهُ ٱلۡمُلۡكُۖ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۖ فَأَنَّىٰ تُصۡرَفُونَ

(39: 6) He it is Who created you from a single being, and He it is Who made
from it its mate. 2 He it is Who created for you eight heads of cattle
in pairs. 3 He creates you in your mothers' wombs, giving you one
form after another in threefold depths of darkness. 4 That, then,
is Allah, your Lord. 5 His is the kingdom. 6 There is
no god but He. 7 So, whence are you being turned astray?8

إِن تَكۡفُرُواْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنكُمۡۖ وَلَا يَرۡضَىٰ لِعِبَادِهِ ٱلۡكُفۡرَۖ وَإِن تَشۡكُرُواْ يَرۡضَهُ لَكُمۡۗ وَلَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٞ وِزۡرَ أُخۡرَىٰۚ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُم مَّرۡجِعُكُمۡ فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَۚ إِنَّهُۥ عَلِيمُۢ بِذَاتِ ٱلصُّدُورِ

(39: 7) If you disbelieve, know well that Allah has no need of you. 9
Yet He does not like unbelief in His servants. 0 But if you are thankful,
your thankfulness will please Him. 1 No one shall bear another's
burden. 2 You are destined to return to your Lord and He will tell
you what you used to do. He is well aware even of what lies hidden in your breasts.

۞وَإِذَا مَسَّ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ ضُرّٞ دَعَا رَبَّهُۥ مُنِيبًا إِلَيۡهِ ثُمَّ إِذَا خَوَّلَهُۥ نِعۡمَةٗ مِّنۡهُ نَسِيَ مَا كَانَ يَدۡعُوٓاْ إِلَيۡهِ مِن قَبۡلُ وَجَعَلَ لِلَّهِ أَندَادٗا لِّيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِۦۚ قُلۡ تَمَتَّعۡ بِكُفۡرِكَ قَلِيلًا إِنَّكَ مِنۡ أَصۡحَٰبِ ٱلنَّارِ

(39: 8) When any affliction befalls man, 3 he cries out to his
Lord, penitently turning to Him. 4 But when his Lord bestows His
favour upon him, he forgets the affliction regarding which he had cried out5
and sets up compeers to Allah6 that they may lead others astray
from His Path. 7 Say, (O Prophet): “Enjoy your unbelief for a while.
Surely you will be among the inmates of the Fire.”

أَمَّنۡ هُوَ قَٰنِتٌ ءَانَآءَ ٱلَّيۡلِ سَاجِدٗا وَقَآئِمٗا يَحۡذَرُ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةَ وَيَرۡجُواْ رَحۡمَةَ رَبِّهِۦۗ قُلۡ هَلۡ يَسۡتَوِي ٱلَّذِينَ يَعۡلَمُونَ وَٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُوْلُواْ ٱلۡأَلۡبَٰبِ

(39: 9) Is such a person (preferable or he) who is obedient, and prostrates
himself in the watches of the night, stands (in Prayer), is fearful of the Hereafter,
and looks forward to the mercy of His Lord? Ask them: “Are those who know equal
to those who do not know?”8 Only those endowed with understanding
take heed.

قُلۡ يَٰعِبَادِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمۡۚ لِلَّذِينَ أَحۡسَنُواْ فِي هَٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا حَسَنَةٞۗ وَأَرۡضُ ٱللَّهِ وَٰسِعَةٌۗ إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى ٱلصَّـٰبِرُونَ أَجۡرَهُم بِغَيۡرِ حِسَابٖ

(39: 10) Tell them (O Prophet): “O you servants of Mine who believe, have
fear of your Lord. 9 A good end awaits those who did good in this
world. 0 Allah's earth is spacious. 1 Verily those who
persevere shall be granted their reward beyond all reckoning.”2

قُلۡ إِنِّيٓ أُمِرۡتُ أَنۡ أَعۡبُدَ ٱللَّهَ مُخۡلِصٗا لَّهُ ٱلدِّينَ

(39: 11) Tell them, (O Prophet): “I am bidden to serve Allah, consecrating
my devotion to Him,

وَأُمِرۡتُ لِأَنۡ أَكُونَ أَوَّلَ ٱلۡمُسۡلِمِينَ

(39: 12) and I am bidden to be the first of those who surrender to Him.”3

قُلۡ إِنِّيٓ أَخَافُ إِنۡ عَصَيۡتُ رَبِّي عَذَابَ يَوۡمٍ عَظِيمٖ

(39: 13) Say: “If I disobey my Lord, I fear the chastisement of an Awesome
Day.”

قُلِ ٱللَّهَ أَعۡبُدُ مُخۡلِصٗا لَّهُۥ دِينِي

(39: 14) Say: “Allah alone shall I serve, consecrating my devotion to Him.

فَٱعۡبُدُواْ مَا شِئۡتُم مِّن دُونِهِۦۗ قُلۡ إِنَّ ٱلۡخَٰسِرِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ خَسِرُوٓاْ أَنفُسَهُمۡ وَأَهۡلِيهِمۡ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِۗ أَلَا ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ ٱلۡخُسۡرَانُ ٱلۡمُبِينُ

(39: 15) So serve, apart from Him, whomsoever you please.” Say: “Behold, the
real losers shall be those who will have lost their own selves and their kith
and kin on the Day of Resurrection. Behold, that is the obvious loss. 4

لَهُم مِّن فَوۡقِهِمۡ ظُلَلٞ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ وَمِن تَحۡتِهِمۡ ظُلَلٞۚ ذَٰلِكَ يُخَوِّفُ ٱللَّهُ بِهِۦ عِبَادَهُۥۚ يَٰعِبَادِ فَٱتَّقُونِ

(39: 16) There shall be sheets of fire above them and beneath them. This is
the end against which Allah warns His servants. So dread My wrath, O you servants
of Mine!”

وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱجۡتَنَبُواْ ٱلطَّـٰغُوتَ أَن يَعۡبُدُوهَا وَأَنَابُوٓاْ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ لَهُمُ ٱلۡبُشۡرَىٰۚ فَبَشِّرۡ عِبَادِ

(39: 17) (On the other hand), good tidings await those who eschew serving
false gods5 and penitently return to Allah. (O Prophet), give good
tidings to My servants,

ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَمِعُونَ ٱلۡقَوۡلَ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ أَحۡسَنَهُۥٓۚ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ هَدَىٰهُمُ ٱللَّهُۖ وَأُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ هُمۡ أُوْلُواْ ٱلۡأَلۡبَٰبِ

(39: 18) to those who pay heed to what is said and follow the best of it. 6
They are the ones whom Allah has guided to the Right Way; they are the ones
endowed with understanding.

أَفَمَنۡ حَقَّ عَلَيۡهِ كَلِمَةُ ٱلۡعَذَابِ أَفَأَنتَ تُنقِذُ مَن فِي ٱلنَّارِ

(39: 19) (O Prophet), can you save him (from chastisement) against whom the
sentence of chastisement has become due; 7 him who has, (as it were),
already fallen into the Fire?”

لَٰكِنِ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوۡاْ رَبَّهُمۡ لَهُمۡ غُرَفٞ مِّن فَوۡقِهَا غُرَفٞ مَّبۡنِيَّةٞ تَجۡرِي مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَٰرُۖ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ لَا يُخۡلِفُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡمِيعَادَ

(39: 20) But those who fear their Lord shall have lofty mansions built over
one another beneath which rivers flow. This is Allah's promise and never does
Allah fail to fulfil His promise.

أَلَمۡ تَرَ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ أَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءٗ فَسَلَكَهُۥ يَنَٰبِيعَ فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ ثُمَّ يُخۡرِجُ بِهِۦ زَرۡعٗا مُّخۡتَلِفًا أَلۡوَٰنُهُۥ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَىٰهُ مُصۡفَرّٗا ثُمَّ يَجۡعَلُهُۥ حُطَٰمًاۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَذِكۡرَىٰ لِأُوْلِي ٱلۡأَلۡبَٰبِ

(39: 21) Do you not see that Allah sent down water from the sky, then made
it flow on earth as springs and streams and rivers8 and then with
it He brings forth vegetation of various hues; then this vegetation ripens and
dries up, turning yellow, whereafter He reduces it to broken straw? Surely there
is a lesson in this for those endowed with understanding. 9

أَفَمَن شَرَحَ ٱللَّهُ صَدۡرَهُۥ لِلۡإِسۡلَٰمِ فَهُوَ عَلَىٰ نُورٖ مِّن رَّبِّهِۦۚ فَوَيۡلٞ لِّلۡقَٰسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُم مِّن ذِكۡرِ ٱللَّهِۚ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ فِي ضَلَٰلٖ مُّبِينٍ

(39: 22) Can he whose breast Allah has opened up for Islam0 and
who is thus (moving along a Path) illumined by a light from Allah1
(be likened to him who derives no lesson from what he observes)? Woe, then,
to those whose hearts were further hardened2 after Allah's admonition.
Such are indeed in obvious error.

ٱللَّهُ نَزَّلَ أَحۡسَنَ ٱلۡحَدِيثِ كِتَٰبٗا مُّتَشَٰبِهٗا مَّثَانِيَ تَقۡشَعِرُّ مِنۡهُ جُلُودُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَخۡشَوۡنَ رَبَّهُمۡ ثُمَّ تَلِينُ جُلُودُهُمۡ وَقُلُوبُهُمۡ إِلَىٰ ذِكۡرِ ٱللَّهِۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُدَى ٱللَّهِ يَهۡدِي بِهِۦ مَن يَشَآءُۚ وَمَن يُضۡلِلِ ٱللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُۥ مِنۡ هَادٍ

(39: 23) Allah has revealed the best teaching, a self-consistent Book3
which repeats its contents in manifold forms whereat shiver the skins of those
that hold their Lord in awe, and then their skins and their hearts soften for
Allah's remembrance. That is Allah's Guidance wherewith He guides whosoever
He pleases. And he whom Allah does not guide to the Right Path has none to guide
him.

أَفَمَن يَتَّقِي بِوَجۡهِهِۦ سُوٓءَ ٱلۡعَذَابِ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِۚ وَقِيلَ لِلظَّـٰلِمِينَ ذُوقُواْ مَا كُنتُمۡ تَكۡسِبُونَ

(39: 24) How woeful is the plight of him who has nothing except his face to
shield him from severe chastisement on the Day of Resurrection?4
Such evil-doers shall be told: “Taste now the consequence of your deeds.”5

كَذَّبَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِمۡ فَأَتَىٰهُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ

(39: 25) Their predecessors gave the lie to the Truth and then chastisement
came upon them from whence they could not imagine.

فَأَذَاقَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡخِزۡيَ فِي ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَاۖ وَلَعَذَابُ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةِ أَكۡبَرُۚ لَوۡ كَانُواْ يَعۡلَمُونَ

(39: 26) So Allah made them taste degradation in the life of this world, and
certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter will be much more grievous. Would
that they knew!

وَلَقَدۡ ضَرَبۡنَا لِلنَّاسِ فِي هَٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٖ لَّعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ

(39: 27) We have indeed propounded for mankind all kinds of parables in this
Qur'an that they may take heed.

قُرۡءَانًا عَرَبِيًّا غَيۡرَ ذِي عِوَجٖ لَّعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَّقُونَ

(39: 28) It is an Arabic Qur'an6 free of all crookedness7
that they may guard against their evil end.

ضَرَبَ ٱللَّهُ مَثَلٗا رَّجُلٗا فِيهِ شُرَكَآءُ مُتَشَٰكِسُونَ وَرَجُلٗا سَلَمٗا لِّرَجُلٍ هَلۡ يَسۡتَوِيَانِ مَثَلًاۚ ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِۚ بَلۡ أَكۡثَرُهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ

(39: 29) Allah propounds a parable: there is a man whose ownership is shared
by several quarrelsome masters, each pulling him to himself; and there is another
who is exclusively owned by one man. Can the two be alike?8 All
praise and thanks be to Allah. 9 But most of them are unaware. 0

إِنَّكَ مَيِّتٞ وَإِنَّهُم مَّيِّتُونَ

(39: 30) (O Prophet), you are destined to die and they too are destined to
die. 1

ثُمَّ إِنَّكُمۡ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ عِندَ رَبِّكُمۡ تَخۡتَصِمُونَ

(39: 31) Then eventually all of you will contend before your Lord on the Day
of Resurrection.

۞فَمَنۡ أَظۡلَمُ مِمَّن كَذَبَ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ وَكَذَّبَ بِٱلصِّدۡقِ إِذۡ جَآءَهُۥٓۚ أَلَيۡسَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ مَثۡوٗى لِّلۡكَٰفِرِينَ

(39: 32) Who, then, can be more unjust than he who lied against Allah and
denied the Truth when it came to him, calling it a lie? Is there no room for
such unbelievers in Hell?

وَٱلَّذِي جَآءَ بِٱلصِّدۡقِ وَصَدَّقَ بِهِۦٓ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُتَّقُونَ

(39: 33) But he who brought the Truth, and those who confirmed it as true,
such are the ones who shall be guarded against the chastisement. 2

لَهُم مَّا يَشَآءُونَ عِندَ رَبِّهِمۡۚ ذَٰلِكَ جَزَآءُ ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ

(39: 34) They shall have from their Lord all that they wish for. 3
That is the reward of those that do good,

لِيُكَفِّرَ ٱللَّهُ عَنۡهُمۡ أَسۡوَأَ ٱلَّذِي عَمِلُواْ وَيَجۡزِيَهُمۡ أَجۡرَهُم بِأَحۡسَنِ ٱلَّذِي كَانُواْ يَعۡمَلُونَ

(39: 35) so that Allah may remit their worst deeds and reward them according
to the best of their deeds. 4

أَلَيۡسَ ٱللَّهُ بِكَافٍ عَبۡدَهُۥۖ وَيُخَوِّفُونَكَ بِٱلَّذِينَ مِن دُونِهِۦۚ وَمَن يُضۡلِلِ ٱللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُۥ مِنۡ هَادٖ

(39: 36) (O Prophet), does Allah not suffice for His servant? They frighten
you with others apart from Him, 5 although he whom Allah lets go
astray, none can guide him to the Right Way.

وَمَن يَهۡدِ ٱللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُۥ مِن مُّضِلٍّۗ أَلَيۡسَ ٱللَّهُ بِعَزِيزٖ ذِي ٱنتِقَامٖ

(39: 37) And he whom Allah guides to the Right Way, none can lead him astray.
Is not Allah the Most Mighty, the Lord of Retribution?6

وَلَئِن سَأَلۡتَهُم مَّنۡ خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ لَيَقُولُنَّ ٱللَّهُۚ قُلۡ أَفَرَءَيۡتُم مَّا تَدۡعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ إِنۡ أَرَادَنِيَ ٱللَّهُ بِضُرٍّ هَلۡ هُنَّ كَٰشِفَٰتُ ضُرِّهِۦٓ أَوۡ أَرَادَنِي بِرَحۡمَةٍ هَلۡ هُنَّ مُمۡسِكَٰتُ رَحۡمَتِهِۦۚ قُلۡ حَسۡبِيَ ٱللَّهُۖ عَلَيۡهِ يَتَوَكَّلُ ٱلۡمُتَوَكِّلُونَ

(39: 38) If you ask them: “Who created the heavens and the earth?” they will
surely answer: “Allah.” Tell them: “What do you think, then, of the deities
whom you call upon instead of Allah? If Allah should will that an affliction
befall me, will those deities remove the harm inflicted by Him? Or if Allah
should will that I receive (His) Mercy, will they be able to withhold His Mercy
from me?” Say: “Allah is sufficient for me; those who have to put their trust,
let them put their trust in Him. 7

قُلۡ يَٰقَوۡمِ ٱعۡمَلُواْ عَلَىٰ مَكَانَتِكُمۡ إِنِّي عَٰمِلٞۖ فَسَوۡفَ تَعۡلَمُونَ

(39: 39) Tell them: “My people, continue to work in your position as you will,
I too will continue with my work. 8 Soon you shall know

مَن يَأۡتِيهِ عَذَابٞ يُخۡزِيهِ وَيَحِلُّ عَلَيۡهِ عَذَابٞ مُّقِيمٌ

(39: 40) whom the degrading chastisement will visit and upon whom the everlasting
chastisement will alight.

إِنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَا عَلَيۡكَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ لِلنَّاسِ بِٱلۡحَقِّۖ فَمَنِ ٱهۡتَدَىٰ فَلِنَفۡسِهِۦۖ وَمَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّمَا يَضِلُّ عَلَيۡهَاۖ وَمَآ أَنتَ عَلَيۡهِم بِوَكِيلٍ

(39: 41) (O Prophet), We revealed to you the Book with the Truth for all mankind.
So he who follows the Right Way does so to his own benefit, and he who goes
astray, shall hurt only himself by straying. You are not accountable on their
behalf. 9

ٱللَّهُ يَتَوَفَّى ٱلۡأَنفُسَ حِينَ مَوۡتِهَا وَٱلَّتِي لَمۡ تَمُتۡ فِي مَنَامِهَاۖ فَيُمۡسِكُ ٱلَّتِي قَضَىٰ عَلَيۡهَا ٱلۡمَوۡتَ وَيُرۡسِلُ ٱلۡأُخۡرَىٰٓ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٖ مُّسَمًّىۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَأٓيَٰتٖ لِّقَوۡمٖ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

(39: 42) It is Allah Who takes away the souls of people at the hour of their
death, and takes away at the time of sleep the souls of those that have not
died. 0 Then He retains the souls of those against whom He had decreed
death and returns the souls of others till an appointed time. Surely there are
Signs in this for a people who reflect. 1

أَمِ ٱتَّخَذُواْ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ شُفَعَآءَۚ قُلۡ أَوَلَوۡ كَانُواْ لَا يَمۡلِكُونَ شَيۡـٔٗا وَلَا يَعۡقِلُونَ

(39: 43) Or have they taken others instead of Allah as intercessors?2
Say: “Will they intercede though they may have no power and though they may
not even understand?”

قُل لِّلَّهِ ٱلشَّفَٰعَةُ جَمِيعٗاۖ لَّهُۥ مُلۡكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِۖ ثُمَّ إِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ

(39: 44) Say: “All intercession lies with Allah. 3 His is the dominion
of the heavens and the earth. And to Him will all of you be sent back.”

وَإِذَا ذُكِرَ ٱللَّهُ وَحۡدَهُ ٱشۡمَأَزَّتۡ قُلُوبُ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱلۡأٓخِرَةِۖ وَإِذَا ذُكِرَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ إِذَا هُمۡ يَسۡتَبۡشِرُونَ

(39: 45) When Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe
in the Hereafter contract with bitterness, but when deities apart from Allah
are mentioned, they are filled with joy. 4

قُلِ ٱللَّهُمَّ فَاطِرَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ عَٰلِمَ ٱلۡغَيۡبِ وَٱلشَّهَٰدَةِ أَنتَ تَحۡكُمُ بَيۡنَ عِبَادِكَ فِي مَا كَانُواْ فِيهِ يَخۡتَلِفُونَ

(39: 46) Say: “O Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, the Knower
of the unseen and the seen, You it is Who will judge among Your servants concerning
what they differed.

وَلَوۡ أَنَّ لِلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مَا فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ جَمِيعٗا وَمِثۡلَهُۥ مَعَهُۥ لَٱفۡتَدَوۡاْ بِهِۦ مِن سُوٓءِ ٱلۡعَذَابِ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِۚ وَبَدَا لَهُم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَمۡ يَكُونُواْ يَحۡتَسِبُونَ

(39: 47) If the wrong-doers possessed the treasures of the earth in their
entirety and as much besides, they would gladly offer it on the Day of Resurrection
to redeem themselves from the harrowing chastisement. This because there will
appear to them from Allah something (exceedingly dismal which) they had never
even imagined.

وَبَدَا لَهُمۡ سَيِّـَٔاتُ مَا كَسَبُواْ وَحَاقَ بِهِم مَّا كَانُواْ بِهِۦ يَسۡتَهۡزِءُونَ

(39: 48) The evil consequences of their deeds will become fully apparent to
them, and what they had scoffed at will encompass them.

فَإِذَا مَسَّ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ ضُرّٞ دَعَانَا ثُمَّ إِذَا خَوَّلۡنَٰهُ نِعۡمَةٗ مِّنَّا قَالَ إِنَّمَآ أُوتِيتُهُۥ عَلَىٰ عِلۡمِۭۚ بَلۡ هِيَ فِتۡنَةٞ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَهُمۡ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ

(39: 49) When an affliction befalls man, 5 he cries out to Us;
but when We grant him a favour from Us, he says: “I have been granted this on
account of my knowledge.”6 Nay; this (favour) is a test; but most
of them do not know. 7

قَدۡ قَالَهَا ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِمۡ فَمَآ أَغۡنَىٰ عَنۡهُم مَّا كَانُواْ يَكۡسِبُونَ

(39: 50) Their predecessors also said the same, but their earnings proved
of no avail to them, 8

فَأَصَابَهُمۡ سَيِّـَٔاتُ مَا كَسَبُواْۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مِنۡ هَـٰٓؤُلَآءِ سَيُصِيبُهُمۡ سَيِّـَٔاتُ مَا كَسَبُواْ وَمَا هُم بِمُعۡجِزِينَ

(39: 51) and the evil consequences of their deeds overtook them. The wrongdoers
among these will also be overtaken by the evil consequences of their deeds.
They will be utterly unable to frustrate (Us).

أَوَلَمۡ يَعۡلَمُوٓاْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَبۡسُطُ ٱلرِّزۡقَ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيَقۡدِرُۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَأٓيَٰتٖ لِّقَوۡمٖ يُؤۡمِنُونَ

(39: 52) Do they not know that Allah enlarges and straitens the provision
of whomsoever He pleases?9 Therein are Signs for those that believe.

۞قُلۡ يَٰعِبَادِيَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَسۡرَفُواْ عَلَىٰٓ أَنفُسِهِمۡ لَا تَقۡنَطُواْ مِن رَّحۡمَةِ ٱللَّهِۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَغۡفِرُ ٱلذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًاۚ إِنَّهُۥ هُوَ ٱلۡغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ

(39: 53) Tell them, (O Prophet): “My servants0 who have committed
excesses against themselves, do not despair of Allah's Mercy. Surely Allah forgives
all sins. He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. 1

وَأَنِيبُوٓاْ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمۡ وَأَسۡلِمُواْ لَهُۥ مِن قَبۡلِ أَن يَأۡتِيَكُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ

(39: 54) Turn to your Lord and surrender yourselves to Him before the chastisement
over-takes you; for then you will receive no help.

وَٱتَّبِعُوٓاْ أَحۡسَنَ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُم مِّن قَبۡلِ أَن يَأۡتِيَكُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابُ بَغۡتَةٗ وَأَنتُمۡ لَا تَشۡعُرُونَ

(39: 55) Follow the best2 of what has been revealed to you from
your Lord before the chastisement suddenly comes upon you without you even being
aware of it.”

أَن تَقُولَ نَفۡسٞ يَٰحَسۡرَتَىٰ عَلَىٰ مَا فَرَّطتُ فِي جَنۢبِ ٱللَّهِ وَإِن كُنتُ لَمِنَ ٱلسَّـٰخِرِينَ

(39: 56) Lest a person should say: “Alas for me for neglecting my duty towards
Allah and for being among those that scoffed”;

أَوۡ تَقُولَ لَوۡ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هَدَىٰنِي لَكُنتُ مِنَ ٱلۡمُتَّقِينَ

(39: 57) and lest a person should say: “If only Allah had guided me, I should
have been one of the God-fearing”;

أَوۡ تَقُولَ حِينَ تَرَى ٱلۡعَذَابَ لَوۡ أَنَّ لِي كَرَّةٗ فَأَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُحۡسِنِينَ

(39: 58) or lest he should say, when he sees the chastisement: “O that I might
return again, and be among those who do good.”

بَلَىٰ قَدۡ جَآءَتۡكَ ءَايَٰتِي فَكَذَّبۡتَ بِهَا وَٱسۡتَكۡبَرۡتَ وَكُنتَ مِنَ ٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ

(39: 59) Yes indeed! But My Signs came to you and you rejected them as lies,
and waxed arrogant and were among those who disbelieved.

وَيَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ تَرَى ٱلَّذِينَ كَذَبُواْ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ وُجُوهُهُم مُّسۡوَدَّةٌۚ أَلَيۡسَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ مَثۡوٗى لِّلۡمُتَكَبِّرِينَ

(39: 60) On the Day of Resurrection you shall see that the faces of those
who had lied against Allah have turned dark. Is Hell not vast enough to provide
a room to the vainglorious?

وَيُنَجِّي ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوۡاْ بِمَفَازَتِهِمۡ لَا يَمَسُّهُمُ ٱلسُّوٓءُ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحۡزَنُونَ

(39: 61) But as for the God-fearing, Allah will deliver them on account of
their achievements: no harm shall visit them nor shall they grieve.

ٱللَّهُ خَٰلِقُ كُلِّ شَيۡءٖۖ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيۡءٖ وَكِيلٞ

(39: 62) Allah is the Creator of everything; He is the Guardian over everything. 3

لَّهُۥ مَقَالِيدُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِۗ وَٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ بِـَٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ أُوْلَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلۡخَٰسِرُونَ

(39: 63) To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. It is those
who disbelieve in Allah's Signs who will be the losers.

قُلۡ أَفَغَيۡرَ ٱللَّهِ تَأۡمُرُوٓنِّيٓ أَعۡبُدُ أَيُّهَا ٱلۡجَٰهِلُونَ

(39: 64) (O Prophet), say: “Ignorant people! Do you bid me to serve any other
beside Allah?”

وَلَقَدۡ أُوحِيَ إِلَيۡكَ وَإِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِكَ لَئِنۡ أَشۡرَكۡتَ لَيَحۡبَطَنَّ عَمَلُكَ وَلَتَكُونَنَّ مِنَ ٱلۡخَٰسِرِينَ

(39: 65) (Tell them clearly that) it was revealed to you and to all Prophets
before you: “If you associate any others with Allah in His Divinity, your works
will surely come to naught4 and you will certainly be among the
losers.”

بَلِ ٱللَّهَ فَٱعۡبُدۡ وَكُن مِّنَ ٱلشَّـٰكِرِينَ

(39: 66) Therefore, serve Allah alone and be among those who give thanks.

وَمَا قَدَرُواْ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدۡرِهِۦ وَٱلۡأَرۡضُ جَمِيعٗا قَبۡضَتُهُۥ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَٰمَةِ وَٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتُ مَطۡوِيَّـٰتُۢ بِيَمِينِهِۦۚ سُبۡحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ

(39: 67) They did not recognise the true worth of Allah. 5 (Such
is Allah's power that) on the Day of Resurrection the whole earth will be in
His grasp, and the heavens shall be folded up in His Right Hand. 6
Glory be to Him! Exalted be He from all that they associate with Him. 7

وَنُفِخَ فِي ٱلصُّورِ فَصَعِقَ مَن فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَن فِي ٱلۡأَرۡضِ إِلَّا مَن شَآءَ ٱللَّهُۖ ثُمَّ نُفِخَ فِيهِ أُخۡرَىٰ فَإِذَا هُمۡ قِيَامٞ يَنظُرُونَ

(39: 68) And the Trumpet shall be blown8 and all who are in the
heavens and the earth shall fall down dead save those whom Allah wills. Then
the Trumpet shall be blown again, and lo! all of them will be standing and looking
on. 9

وَأَشۡرَقَتِ ٱلۡأَرۡضُ بِنُورِ رَبِّهَا وَوُضِعَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبُ وَجِاْيٓءَ بِٱلنَّبِيِّـۧنَ وَٱلشُّهَدَآءِ وَقُضِيَ بَيۡنَهُم بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَهُمۡ لَا يُظۡلَمُونَ

(39: 69) The earth shall shine with the light of its Lord, and the Scroll
(of deeds) shall be set in place, and the Prophets and all witnesses0
shall be brought, and judgement shall be justly passed among them, and they
shall not be wronged;

وَوُفِّيَتۡ كُلُّ نَفۡسٖ مَّا عَمِلَتۡ وَهُوَ أَعۡلَمُ بِمَا يَفۡعَلُونَ

(39: 70) and everyone shall be paid in full for all that he did. Allah is
best aware of all that they do.

وَسِيقَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓاْ إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ زُمَرًاۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءُوهَا فُتِحَتۡ أَبۡوَٰبُهَا وَقَالَ لَهُمۡ خَزَنَتُهَآ أَلَمۡ يَأۡتِكُمۡ رُسُلٞ مِّنكُمۡ يَتۡلُونَ عَلَيۡكُمۡ ءَايَٰتِ رَبِّكُمۡ وَيُنذِرُونَكُمۡ لِقَآءَ يَوۡمِكُمۡ هَٰذَاۚ قَالُواْ بَلَىٰ وَلَٰكِنۡ حَقَّتۡ كَلِمَةُ ٱلۡعَذَابِ عَلَى ٱلۡكَٰفِرِينَ

(39: 71) (After the judgement has been passed) the unbelievers shall be driven
in companies to Hell so that when they arrive there, its gates shall be thrown
open1 and its keepers shall say to them: “Did Messengers from among
yourselves not come to you, rehearsing to you the Signs of your Lord and warning
you against your meeting of this Day?” They will say: “Yes indeed; but the sentence
of chastisement was bound to be executed against the unbelievers.”

قِيلَ ٱدۡخُلُوٓاْ أَبۡوَٰبَ جَهَنَّمَ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَاۖ فَبِئۡسَ مَثۡوَى ٱلۡمُتَكَبِّرِينَ

(39: 72) It will be said: “Enter the gates of Hell. Herein shall you abide.”
How evil is the abode of the vainglorious!

وَسِيقَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّقَوۡاْ رَبَّهُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡجَنَّةِ زُمَرًاۖ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءُوهَا وَفُتِحَتۡ أَبۡوَٰبُهَا وَقَالَ لَهُمۡ خَزَنَتُهَا سَلَٰمٌ عَلَيۡكُمۡ طِبۡتُمۡ فَٱدۡخُلُوهَا خَٰلِدِينَ

(39: 73) And those who eschewed disobeying their Lord shall be driven in companies
to Paradise so that when they arrive there its gates will have already been
thrown open and its keepers shall say to them: “Peace be upon you; you have
done well. So enter. Herein you shall abide.”

وَقَالُواْ ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِي صَدَقَنَا وَعۡدَهُۥ وَأَوۡرَثَنَا ٱلۡأَرۡضَ نَتَبَوَّأُ مِنَ ٱلۡجَنَّةِ حَيۡثُ نَشَآءُۖ فَنِعۡمَ أَجۡرُ ٱلۡعَٰمِلِينَ

(39: 74) They will say: “All thanks and praise be to Allah Who has made His
promise to us come true, and Who gave us the earth to inherit. 2
We may now dwell in Paradise wherever we please.”3 How excellent
is the reward of those who laboured!4

وَتَرَى ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓئِكَةَ حَآفِّينَ مِنۡ حَوۡلِ ٱلۡعَرۡشِ يُسَبِّحُونَ بِحَمۡدِ رَبِّهِمۡۚ وَقُضِيَ بَيۡنَهُم بِٱلۡحَقِّۚ وَقِيلَ ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَٰلَمِينَ

(39: 75) You shall see the angels surrounding the Throne, glorifying their
Lord with His praise, and judgement will have been made among them with fairness,
and it will be proclaimed: “All praise and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the
whole Universe.” 5
