Do those people who have denied (accepting the word of Prophet, Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) not ponder that all these skies and the earth were joined together (as one piece), then WE separated them, and created every living being from water?

34.             Wama jaAAalna libasharin min qablika alkhulda afain mitta fahumu alkhalidoona
And O Prophet (Muhammad,
sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), WE have not granted eternity to anyone before you if you die then would these people live forever?

43.             Am lahum alihatun tamnaAAuhum min doonina la yastateeAAoona nasra anfusihim wala hum minna yushaboona
Do they have some such deities (Ilhan) who can help them against US? Neither they (their deities) can help themselves nor do they have any support from US.

He responded: "Absolutely not, but in fact your Rbb is the same WHO is the Rbb of the skies and the earth and their Creator. I bear witness to this in front of you.

وَتَاللَّهِ لَأَكِيدَنَّ أَصْنَامَكُم بَعْدَ أَن تُوَلُّوا مُدْبِرِينَ

57.             WataAllahi laakeedanna asnamakum baAAda an tuwalloo mudbireena
And By Allh I shall certainly take care of your idols in your absence."

فَجَعَلَهُمْ جُذَاذًا إِلَّا كَبِيرًا لَّهُمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ إِلَيْهِ يَرْجِعُونَ

58.             FajaAAalahum juthathan illa kabeeran lahum laAAallahum ilayhi yarjiAAoona
Therefore, he broke them into pieces and only spared the biggest of them so that they might turn to it.

قَالُوا مَن فَعَلَ هَذَا بِآلِهَتِنَا إِنَّهُ لَمِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

59.             Qaloo man faAAala hatha bialihatina innahu lamina alththalimeena
(They came and saw the condition of their idols then) Began to say: "Who has done this to our deities (Ilhan)? He was a cruel person."

قَالُوا سَمِعْنَا فَتًى يَذْكُرُهُمْ يُقَالُ لَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ

60.             Qaloo samiAAna fatan yathkuruhum yuqalu lahu ibraheemu
(Some people) Said: "We heard a young man talking about them whose name is Ibrhim."

قَالُوا فَأْتُوا بِهِ عَلَى أَعْيُنِ النَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَشْهَدُونَ

61.             Qaloo fatoo bihi AAala aAAyuni alnnasi laAAallahum yashhadoona
They said: "Then bring him before all the people so that people should see (how he is dealt).

قَالُوا أَأَنتَ فَعَلْتَ هَذَا بِآلِهَتِنَا يَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ

62.             Qaloo aanta faAAalta hatha bialihatina ya ibraheemu
(When Ibrhim came) They asked: "O Ibrhim, have you done this to our deities?"

قَالَ بَلْ فَعَلَهُ كَبِيرُهُمْ هَذَا فَاسْأَلُوهُمْ إِن كَانُوا يَنطِقُونَ

63.             Qala bal faAAalahu kabeeruhum hatha faisaloohum in kanoo yantiqoona
He (Ibrhim) responded: "This chief of them has done all that, ask them if they speak.

فَرَجَعُوا إِلَى أَنفُسِهِمْ فَقَالُوا إِنَّكُمْ أَنتُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ

64.             FarajaAAoo ila anfusihim faqaloo innakum antumu alththalimoona
Hearing this they turned toward their inner-soul (self-consciousness) and (in their hearts) began to say: "Truly you yourselves are cruels (Zlimn)."

ثُمَّ نُكِسُوا عَلَى رُؤُوسِهِمْ لَقَدْ عَلِمْتَ مَا هَؤُلَاء يَنطِقُونَ

65.             Thumma nukisoo AAala ruoosihim laqad AAalimta ma haolai yantiqoona
But then their sense was gone and they said: "You know that they (idols) do not speak."

قَالَ أَفَتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُكُمْ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَضُرُّكُمْ

66.             Qala afataAAbudoona min dooni Allahi ma la yanfaAAukum shayan wala yadurrukum
Ibrhim said: "Then except Allh are you worshiping those things which do not have the power to benefit or harm you?

أُفٍّ لَّكُمْ وَلِمَا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

67.             Offin lakum walima taAAbudoona min dooni Allahi afala taAAqiloona
Shame on you and on your these idols -- whom you are worshiping except Allh. Have you no sense at all?"

قَالُوا حَرِّقُوهُ وَانصُرُوا آلِهَتَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ فَاعِلِينَ

68.             Qaloo harriqoohu waonsuroo alihatakum in kuntum faAAileena
They cried out: "Burn him and help your deities (Ilhan) if you have to do anything (for your deities).

قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُونِي بَرْدًا وَسَلَامًا عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ

69.             Qulna ya naru koonee bardan wasalaman AAala ibraheema
WE (Allh, subhaana wa taaala) said: "O fire! Be cool and become peaceful for Ibrhim."

وَأَرَادُوا بِهِ كَيْدًا فَجَعَلْنَاهُمُ الْأَخْسَرِينَ

70.             Waaradoo bihi kaydan fajaAAalnahumu alakhsareena
They wanted to harm him. But WE gave them worst defeat.

وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ وَلُوطًا إِلَى الْأَرْضِ الَّتِي بَارَكْنَا فِيهَا لِلْعَالَمِينَ

71.             Wanajjaynahu walootan ila alardi allatee barakna feeha lilAAalameena
And WE saved him and Lout (nephew of Ibrhim) and brought them to that land in which WE have placed many blessings for the mankind ('Alamn).

وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُ إِسْحَقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ نَافِلَةً وَكُلًّا جَعَلْنَا صَالِحِينَ

72.             Wawahabna lahu ishaqa wayaAAqooba nafilatan wakullan jaAAalna saliheena
And WE gave him Ishque and in addition Ya'qb, and made each of them righteous.

وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْهِمْ فِعْلَ الْخَيْرَاتِ وَإِقَامَ الصَّلَاةِ وَإِيتَاء الزَّكَاةِ وَكَانُوا لَنَا عَابِدِينَ

73.             WajaAAalnahum aimmatan yahdoona biamrina waawhayna ilayhim fiAAla alkhayrati waiqama alssalati waeetaa alzzakati wakanoo lana AAabideena
And WE made them spiritual guides (Imam) who guided by OUR Command. And WE instructed them by revelation to do righteous deeds and to establish prayer (Salt) and to pay the poor-dues (Zakt), and they were OUR devotees.

وَلُوطًا آتَيْنَاهُ حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْقَرْيَةِ الَّتِي كَانَت تَّعْمَلُ الْخَبَائِثَ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمَ سَوْءٍ فَاسِقِينَ

74.             Walootan ataynahu hukman waAAilman wanajjaynahu mina alqaryati allatee kanat taAAmalu alkhabaitha innahum kanoo qawma sawin fasiqeena
And WE gave Lout verdict (Hukman) and knowledge and safely delivered him from that town which used to do wicked deeds (Al-Khab'ith)
--in fact it was very bad, hypocrite nation (Fsiqn)--

وَأَدْخَلْنَاهُ فِي رَحْمَتِنَا إِنَّهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ

75.             Waadkhalnahu fee rahmatina innahu mina alssaliheena
And WE accepted Lout into OUR Mercy; he was from the righteous people.(R) 5

وَنُوحًا إِذْ نَادَى مِن قَبْلُ فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ فَنَجَّيْنَاهُ وَأَهْلَهُ مِنَ الْكَرْبِ الْعَظِيمِ

76.             Wanoohan ith nada min qablu faistajabna lahu fanajjaynahu waahlahu mina alkarbi alAAatheemi
And the same blessing WE bestowed on Nh. Recall when he called US before all of them. WE accepted his prayer and delivered him and his family from great distress,

وَنَصَرْنَاهُ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا قَوْمَ سَوْءٍ فَأَغْرَقْنَاهُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

77.             Wanasarnahu mina alqawmi allatheena kaththaboo biayatina innahum kanoo qawma sawin faaghraqnahum ajmaAAeena
And helped him against that nation -- who had denied OUR Revelation (Ayt). They were very bad people, so WE drowned them all.

وَدَاوُودَ وَسُلَيْمَانَ إِذْ يَحْكُمَانِ فِي الْحَرْثِ إِذْ نَفَشَتْ فِيهِ غَنَمُ الْقَوْمِ وَكُنَّا لِحُكْمِهِمْ شَاهِدِينَ

78.             Wadawooda wasulaymana ith yahkumani fee alharthi ith nafashat feehi ghanamu alqawmi wakunna lihukmihim shahideena
And WE honored Dawd and Sulaimn with the same blessing. Recall that occasion when they both were judging in the case of a field in which the sheep of other person had spread at nighttime, and WE were watching their court OURSELF.

فَفَهَّمْنَاهَا سُلَيْمَانَ وَكُلًّا آتَيْنَا حُكْمًا وَعِلْمًا وَسَخَّرْنَا مَعَ دَاوُودَ الْجِبَالَ يُسَبِّحْنَ وَالطَّيْرَ وَكُنَّا فَاعِلِينَ

79.             Fafahhamnaha sulaymana wakullan atayna hukman waAAilman wasakhkharna maAAa dawooda aljibala yusabbihna waalttayra wakunna faAAileena
At that time, WE guided Sulaimn to the right decision, whereas WE had given verdict (Hukman) and knowledge to both of them. WE made mountains and birds submissive to Dawd, which praises (OUR Glory); WE made that to happen,

وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ صَنْعَةَ لَبُوسٍ لَّكُمْ لِتُحْصِنَكُم مِّن بَأْسِكُمْ فَهَلْ أَنتُمْ شَاكِرُونَ

80.             WaAAallamnahu sanAAata laboosin lakum lituhsinakum min basikum fahal antum shakiroona
And WE had taught him the skill of making the metal coats for your benefit, so that it protects you from each others violence, are you then grateful?

وَلِسُلَيْمَانَ الرِّيحَ عَاصِفَةً تَجْرِي بِأَمْرِهِ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ الَّتِي بَارَكْنَا فِيهَا وَكُنَّا بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَالِمِينَ

81.             Walisulaymana alrreeha AAasifatan tajree biamrihi ila alardi allatee barakna feeha wakunna bikulli shayin AAalimeena
And WE had subjected the brisk winds for Sulaimn, which were running by his command towards that land in which WE have placed the blessings; WE had the Knowledge of everything.

وَمِنَ الشَّيَاطِينِ مَن يَغُوصُونَ لَهُ وَيَعْمَلُونَ عَمَلًا دُونَ ذَلِكَ وَكُنَّا لَهُمْ حَافِظِينَ

82.             Wamina alshshayateeni man yaghoosoona lahu wayaAAmaloona AAamalan doona thalika wakunna lahum hafitheena
And WE had made many such Shaytin subservient to him who used to dive for him and besides this used to do other things. WE were the custodians of all of them.

وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَى رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ

83.             Waayyooba ith nada rabbahu annee massaniya alddurru waanta arhamu alrrahimeena
And the same (wisdom, verdict and knowledge) WE had given to Ayb. Recall when he prayed to his Rbb: I am afflicted with disease and YOU are the Most Loving and Merciful.

فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ فَكَشَفْنَا مَا بِهِ مِن ضُرٍّ وَآتَيْنَاهُ أَهْلَهُ وَمِثْلَهُم مَّعَهُمْ رَحْمَةً مِّنْ عِندِنَا وَذِكْرَى لِلْعَابِدِينَ

84.             Faistajabna lahu fakashafna ma bihi min durrin waataynahu ahlahu wamithlahum maAAahum rahmatan min AAindina wathikra lilAAabideena
WE accepted his prayer and WE relieved him from his pain, and just did not gave back his family to him but also gave him as many more with it, as OUR special mercy, and for this reason that it should be a lesson for the righteous people.

وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِدْرِيسَ وَذَا الْكِفْلِ كُلٌّ مِّنَ الصَّابِرِينَ

85.             WaismaAAeela waidreesa watha alkifli kullun mina alssabireena
And the same blessing was given to Ismal, Idris, and Dhul-Kifl because they all were patient (As-Sbirin) people.

وَأَدْخَلْنَاهُمْ فِي رَحْمَتِنَا إِنَّهُم مِّنَ الصَّالِحِينَ

86.             Waadkhalnahum fee rahmatina innahum mina alssaliheena
And WE admitted them to OUR Mercy because they were from the pious people.

وَذَا النُّونِ إِذ ذَّهَبَ مُغَاضِبًا فَظَنَّ أَن لَّن نَّقْدِرَ عَلَيْهِ فَنَادَى فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ أَن لَّا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

87.             Watha alnnooni ith thahaba mughadiban fathanna an lan naqdira AAalayhi fanada fee alththulumati an la ilaha illa anta subhanaka innee kuntu mina alththalimeena
And WE also blessed the one with fish (Dhan-Nn). Recall when he went away in anger and had thought that WE would not hold (him) accountable on it. Eventually he called (prayed) from the darkness (saying): There is no Allh except YOU (L ilha illa Anta), YOU are Pure; surely I have done wrong (to myself).

فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَكَذَلِكَ نُنجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

88.             Faistajabna lahu wanajjaynahu mina alghammi wakathalika nunjee almumineena
Then WE accepted his prayer and delivered him from the distress and in the same way, WE save the true believers.

وَزَكَرِيَّا إِذْ نَادَى رَبَّهُ رَبِّ لَا تَذَرْنِي فَرْدًا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْوَارِثِينَ

89.             Wazakariyya ith nada rabbahu rabbi la tatharnee fardan waanta khayru alwaritheena
And to Zakariy, when he prayed to his Rbb: "O Rbb, do not leave me alone (childless), and YOU alone are the best inheritor."

فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَوَهَبْنَا لَهُ يَحْيَى وَأَصْلَحْنَا لَهُ زَوْجَهُ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ وَيَدْعُونَنَا رَغَبًا وَرَهَبًا وَكَانُوا لَنَا خَاشِعِينَ

90.             Faistajabna lahu wawahabna lahu yahya waaslahna lahu zawjahu innahum kanoo yusariAAoona fee alkhayrati wayadAAoonana raghaban warahaban wakanoo lana khashiAAeena
So, WE accepted his prayer and gave him Yahya and cured his wife (to bear a child) for him. These people used to exert for the righteous deeds and they called US with Love and Fear, and were submissive to US.

وَالَّتِي أَحْصَنَتْ فَرْجَهَا فَنَفَخْنَا فِيهَا مِن رُّوحِنَا وَجَعَلْنَاهَا وَابْنَهَا آيَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ

91.             Waallatee ahsanat farjaha fanafakhna feeha min roohina wajaAAalnaha waibnaha ayatan lilAAalameena
And that woman who had guarded her chastity (Maryam). WE breathed into her through OUR Rh (Angel Jibrael) and made her and her son ('Iesa) a sign for all mankind (Al-Alamn).

إِنَّ هَذِهِ أُمَّتُكُمْ أُمَّةً وَاحِدَةً وَأَنَا رَبُّكُمْ فَاعْبُدُونِ

92.             Inna hathihi ommatukum ommatan wahidatan waana rabbukum faoAAbudooni
Your Nation (Ummh) is in fact one nation and I am your Rbb, therefore you only serve ME (Alone).

وَتَقَطَّعُوا أَمْرَهُم بَيْنَهُمْ كُلٌّ إِلَيْنَا رَاجِعُونَ

93.             WataqattaAAoo amrahum baynahum kullun ilayna rajiAAoona
But (this is the mischief of the people that) they have broken-up their Deen (the way of life) into pieces (many sects)
--all have to return to US. (R) 6

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتِ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَا كُفْرَانَ لِسَعْيِهِ وَإِنَّا لَهُ كَاتِبُونَ

94.             Faman yaAAmal mina alssalihati wahuwa muminun fala kufrana lisaAAyihi wainna lahu katiboona
Then whoever will do righteous deeds provided he/she is a believer, his/her work (deeds) will not be rejected, and WE are writing it down.

وَحَرَامٌ عَلَى قَرْيَةٍ أَهْلَكْنَاهَا أَنَّهُمْ لَا يَرْجِعُونَ

95.             Waharamun AAala qaryatin ahlaknaha annahum la yarjiAAoona
And it is not possible that the town WE have destroyed could be returned.

حَتَّى إِذَا فُتِحَتْ يَأْجُوجُ وَمَأْجُوجُ وَهُم مِّن كُلِّ حَدَبٍ يَنسِلُونَ

96.             Hatta itha futihat yajooju wamajooju wahum min kulli hadabin yansiloona
Until when the Gog and Magog (Ya'jj and Ma'jj) will be released and they will show up from every height,

وَاقْتَرَبَ الْوَعْدُ الْحَقُّ فَإِذَا هِيَ شَاخِصَةٌ أَبْصَارُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يَا وَيْلَنَا قَدْ كُنَّا فِي غَفْلَةٍ مِّنْ هَذَا بَلْ كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ

97.             Waiqtaraba alwaAAdu alhaqqu faitha hiya shakhisatun absaru allatheena kafaroo ya waylana qad kunna fee ghaflatin min hatha bal kunna thalimeena
And the time of fulfillment for the true promise will come closer then suddenly the eyes of those people who had committed infidelity (Kufr) will remain wide-open. They will say: "Woe to us, we were negligent from this thing, moreover we were the wrongdoers (Zlimn)."

إِنَّكُمْ وَمَا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ حَصَبُ جَهَنَّمَ أَنتُمْ لَهَا وَارِدُونَ

98.             Innakum wama taAAbudoona min dooni Allahi hasabu jahannama antum laha waridoona
No doubt you and your those deities whom you worship except Allh are the fuel of Hell; there you have to go.

لَوْ كَانَ هَؤُلَاء آلِهَةً مَّا وَرَدُوهَا وَكُلٌّ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

99.             Law kana haolai alihatan ma waradooha wakullun feeha khalidoona
If they would be real deities (Ilhan) then they would not have gone there (in Hell). Now all of them have to stay there forever.

لَهُمْ فِيهَا زَفِيرٌ وَهُمْ فِيهَا لَا يَسْمَعُونَ

100.          Lahum feeha zafeerun wahum feeha la yasmaAAoona
There they will cry of distress and the situation will be that nothing could be heard.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ سَبَقَتْ لَهُم مِّنَّا الْحُسْنَى أُوْلَئِكَ عَنْهَا مُبْعَدُونَ

101.          Inna allatheena sabaqat lahum minna alhusna olaika AAanha mubAAadoona
As for those people for whom WE shall already have decided for the good, then they surely will be kept away from it,

لَا يَسْمَعُونَ حَسِيسَهَا وَهُمْ فِي مَا اشْتَهَتْ أَنفُسُهُمْ خَالِدُونَ

102.          La yasmaAAoona haseesaha wahum fee ma ishtahat anfusuhum khalidoona
(They) Will not ever hear the slightest sound of it (Hell) and they will live forever among those things which their own-selves desire the most,

لَا يَحْزُنُهُمُ الْفَزَعُ الْأَكْبَرُ وَتَتَلَقَّاهُمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ هَذَا يَوْمُكُمُ الَّذِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

104.          Yawma natwee alssamaa katayyi alssijlli lilkutubi kama badana awwala khalqin nuAAeeduhu waAAdan AAalayna inna kunna faAAileena
That Day when WE shall roll-up the skies like a historical document is rolled-up in a ledger. As WE had originated the creation, first time the same way WE shall repeat it. This is a promise binding on US, and however WE have to do this thing (to fulfill OUR Promise).

وَلَقَدْ كَتَبْنَا فِي الزَّبُورِ مِن بَعْدِ الذِّكْرِ أَنَّ الْأَرْضَ يَرِثُهَا عِبَادِيَ الصَّالِحُونَ

108.          Qul innama yooha ilayya annama ilahukum ilahun wahidun fahal antum muslimoona
Tell them: "The revelation that comes to me is -- that your Deity (Ilh) is only one Allh (Ilh), then do you submit (to HIM)?

فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَقُلْ آذَنتُكُمْ عَلَى سَوَاء وَإِنْ أَدْرِي أَقَرِيبٌ أَم بَعِيدٌ مَّا تُوعَدُونَ

109.          Fain tawallaw faqul athantukum AAala sawain wain adree aqareebun am baAAeedun ma tooAAadoona
If they turn away then say, "I have openly warned you. Now I do not know whether that thing which is being promised to you is near or far."

إِنَّهُ يَعْلَمُ الْجَهْرَ مِنَ الْقَوْلِ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا تَكْتُمُونَ

Allh knows those things, which are spoken aloud (openly), and those things as well which you whisper secretly.

O people, save yourselves from the anger of your Rbb, the fact is that the earthquake of the Hour of Doom (Resurrection) is a titanic (horrible) thing.

يَوْمَ تَرَوْنَهَا تَذْهَلُ كُلُّ مُرْضِعَةٍ عَمَّا أَرْضَعَتْ وَتَضَعُ كُلُّ ذَاتِ حَمْلٍ حَمْلَهَا وَتَرَى النَّاسَ سُكَارَى وَمَا هُم بِسُكَارَى وَلَكِنَّ عَذَابَ اللَّهِ شَدِيدٌ

2.              Yawma tarawnaha tathhalu kullu murdiAAatin AAamma ardaAAat watadaAAu kullu thati hamlin hamlaha watara alnnasa sukara wama hum bisukara walakinna AAathaba Allahi shadeedun
The Day you will see it, the situation will be that every nursing mother will become ignorant from her suckling, every pregnant will miscarry, and people will appear to you as drunk, though they will not be drunk, whereas the Torment of Allh will be so severe.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّبِعُ كُلَّ شَيْطَانٍ مَّرِيدٍ

3.               Wamina alnnasi man yujadilu fee Allahi bighayri AAilmin wayattabiAAu kulla shaytanin mareedin
There are some such people who debate about Allh without having any knowledge and start following every rebellious Shaitn.

كُتِبَ عَلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ مَن تَوَلَّاهُ فَأَنَّهُ يُضِلُّهُ وَيَهْدِيهِ إِلَى عَذَابِ السَّعِيرِ

4.               Kutiba AAalayhi annahu man tawallahu faannahu yudilluhu wayahdeehi ila AAathabi alssaAAeeri
Whereas it has been written in his fate that whosoever will take him as friend, he will mislead him/her and will show the path to the torment of the Hell.

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِن كُنتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِّنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِن مُّضْغَةٍ مُّخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِّنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الْأَرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاء إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنكُم مَّن يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنكُم مَّن يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلَا يَعْلَمَ مِن بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الْأَرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاء اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنبَتَتْ مِن كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ

5.               Ya ayyuha alnnasu in kuntum fee raybin mina albaAAthi fainna khalaqnakum min turabin thumma min nutfatin thumma min AAalaqatin thumma min mudghatin mukhallaqatin waghayri mukhallaqatin linubayyina lakum wanuqirru fee alarhami ma nashao ila ajalin musamman thumma nukhrijukum tiflan thumma litablughoo ashuddakum waminkum man yutawaffa waminkum man yuraddu ila arthali alAAumuri likayla yaAAlama min baAAdi AAilmin shayan watara alarda hamidatan faitha anzalna AAalayha almaa ihtazzat warabat waanbatat min kulli zawjin baheejin
O people, if you have any doubt about the life after death then you must know that WE have created you from mud, then from sperm (Nutfah), then from clot of blood, then from piece of flesh which is with shape and as well as shapeless. (WE are telling this) So that WE manifest the reality to you. Whichever sperm (Nutfah) WE wanted, (WE) cause it to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then (WE) bring you out in the shape of child (then nourish you) so that you may reach to the age of full strength. And some among you are called back early and some are sent to an old age (miserable period) so that after knowing everything should not know anything. And you see that the land is dry (barren), then wherever WE send rain on it, it suddenly flourished and outgrew and it started producing all kinds of beautiful produces.

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّهُ يُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى وَأَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

6.               Thalika bianna Allaha huwa alhaqqu waannahu yuhyee almawta waannahu AAala kulli shayin qadeerun
All this is so because Allh is the Truth, and HE gives life to the dead, and HE has power over everything,

وَأَنَّ السَّاعَةَ آتِيَةٌ لَّا رَيْبَ فِيهَا وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَبْعَثُ مَن فِي الْقُبُورِ

7.               Waanna alssaAAata atiyatun la rayba feeha waanna Allaha yabAAathu man fee alquboori
And (it is a proof of this thing) that the Hour of Doom will certainly come, there is no reason to doubt about it, and Allh will certainly resurrect those people who are gone into the graves.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ

8.               Wamina alnnasi man yujadilu fee Allahi bighayri AAilmin wala hudan wala kitabin muneerin
Some other people are such who disputes about Allh without any knowledge and guidance and enlightening Book, (with arrogance)

ثَانِيَ عِطْفِهِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ لَهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا خِزْيٌ وَنُذِيقُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَذَابَ الْحَرِيقِ

9.               Thaniya AAitfihi liyudilla AAan sabeeli Allahi lahu fee alddunya khizyun wanutheequhu yawma alqiyamati AAathaba alhareeqi
Turning neck in pride so that they mislead people from the path of Allh. For such person there is disgrace in this worldly life and on the Day of Resurrection WE shall make him/her taste the torment of burning Fire --

ذَلِكَ بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ يَدَاكَ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لَيْسَ بِظَلَّامٍ لِّلْعَبِيدِ

10.            Thalika bima qaddamat yadaka waanna Allaha laysa bithallamin lilAAabeedi
This is your that future which your own hands have prepared for you otherwise Allh is not unjust to HIS servants. (R) 8

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى حَرْفٍ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ

11.            Wamina alnnasi man yaAAbudu Allaha AAala harfin fain asabahu khayrun itmaanna bihi wain asabathu fitnatun inqalaba AAala wajhihi khasira alddunya waalakhirata thalika huwa alkhusranu almubeenu
And there is someone among the people who serve Allh standing on the edge (of Faith and Doubt), if benefited then satisfied and if some calamity comes then turns back. His/her world as well as the Hereafter is lost. This is the real loss.

يَدْعُو مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَضُرُّهُ وَمَا لَا يَنفَعُهُ ذَلِكَ هُوَ الضَّلَالُ الْبَعِيدُ

12.            YadAAoo min dooni Allahi ma la yadurruhu wama la yanfaAAuhu thalika huwa alddalalu albaAAeedu
Then except Allh he/she calls those who can neither harm nor benefit him/her. This is the peek of going astray.

يَدْعُو لَمَن ضَرُّهُ أَقْرَبُ مِن نَّفْعِهِ لَبِئْسَ الْمَوْلَى وَلَبِئْسَ الْعَشِيرُ

13.            YadAAoo laman darruhu aqrabu min nafAAihi labisa almawla walabisa alAAasheeru
He/she calls those whose harm is nearer to their profit the worst is his/her patron (Maul) and worst is his/her companion.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدْخِلُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يُرِيدُ

14.            Inna Allaha yudkhilu allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati jannatin tajree min tahtiha alanharu inna Allaha yafAAalu ma yureedu
(In contrary to this) Those people who brought Faith and did righteous deeds Allh will surely admit them into the Gardens underneath which the canals will be flowing. Allh does what HE wants.

مَن كَانَ يَظُنُّ أَن لَّن يَنصُرَهُ اللَّهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ فَلْيَمْدُدْ بِسَبَبٍ إِلَى السَّمَاء ثُمَّ لِيَقْطَعْ فَلْيَنظُرْ هَلْ يُذْهِبَنَّ كَيْدُهُ مَا يَغِيظُ

15.            Man kana yathunnu an lan yansurahu Allahu fee alddunya waalakhirati falyamdud bisababin ila alssamai thumma liyaqtaAA falyanthur hal yuthhibanna kayduhu ma yagheethu
Whosoever thinks that Allh will not help him/her in this world and in the Hereafter, he/she should try to crack (the sky) by ascending to the sky with the help of rope and then sees if his/her plan can avert any such thing, which he/she dislikes.

وَكَذَلِكَ أَنزَلْنَاهُ آيَاتٍ بَيِّنَاتٍ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَهْدِي مَن يُرِيدُ

16.            Wakathalika anzalnahu ayatin bayyinatin waanna Allaha yahdee man yureedu
Thus, WE have revealed this Al-Qur'n with such plain and clear things and Allh gives guidance whomsoever HE wills.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالصَّابِئِينَ وَالنَّصَارَى وَالْمَجُوسَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَفْصِلُ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

17.            Inna allatheena amanoo waallatheena hadoo waalssabieena waalnnasara waalmajoosa waallatheena ashrakoo inna Allaha yafsilu baynahum yawma alqiyamati inna Allaha AAala kulli shayin shaheedun
Those people who brought Faith, and those who became Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the Magians, and those who committed idolatry (shirk), Allh will judge among them on the Day of Judgment, everything is the Sight of Allh.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَسْجُدُ لَهُ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَن فِي الْأَرْضِ وَالشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ وَالنُّجُومُ وَالْجِبَالُ وَالشَّجَرُ وَالدَّوَابُّ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنَ النَّاسِ وَكَثِيرٌ حَقَّ عَلَيْهِ الْعَذَابُ وَمَن يُهِنِ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِن مُّكْرِمٍ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَفْعَلُ مَا يَشَاء(Al- Sajjda)

18.            Alam tara anna Allaha yasjudu lahu man fee alssamawati waman fee alardi waalshshamsu waalqamaru waalnnujoomu waaljibalu waalshshajaru waalddawabbu wakatheerun mina alnnasi wakatheerun haqqa AAalayhi alAAathabu waman yuhini Allahu fama lahu min mukrimin inna Allaha yafAAalu ma yashao
Dont you see that whatever is in the skies and in the earth -- bows down in prostration before Allh the sun and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the trees and animals (Ad-Dawb) and many of mankind and many those people who have merited for the punishment? And whomsoever Allh disgraces then there is none who can grant an honor -- Allh does whatever HE wants

هَذَانِ خَصْمَانِ اخْتَصَمُوا فِي رَبِّهِمْ فَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا قُطِّعَتْ لَهُمْ ثِيَابٌ مِّن نَّارٍ يُصَبُّ مِن فَوْقِ رُؤُوسِهِمُ الْحَمِيمُ

19.            Hathani khasmani ikhtasamoo fee rabbihim faallatheena kafaroo quttiAAat lahum thiyabun min narin yusabbu min fawqi ruoosihimu alhameemu
These are the two groups (believers and infidels) who have dispute among them about their Rbb. Those people among them who have committed infidelity (Kufr) the garments of fire have been cut for them; boiling water will be poured over their heads

يُصْهَرُ بِهِ مَا فِي بُطُونِهِمْ وَالْجُلُودُ

20.            Yusharu bihi ma fee butoonihim waaljuloodu
With it not only their skins but the inner parts of their bellies will also melt down,

وَلَهُم مَّقَامِعُ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ

21.            Walahum maqamiAAu min hadeedin
And there will be iron battle-axes to take care of them (to punish them).

كُلَّمَا أَرَادُوا أَن يَخْرُجُوا مِنْهَا مِنْ غَمٍّ أُعِيدُوا فِيهَا وَذُوقُوا عَذَابَ الْحَرِيقِ

22.            Kullama aradoo an yakhrujoo minha min ghammin oAAeedoo feeha wathooqoo AAathaba alhareeqi
Whenever in distress they will try to escape from the hell then they will be driven back into it and (it will be) said to them: "Now taste the torment of burning." (R) 9

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدْخِلُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيهَا مِنْ أَسَاوِرَ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَلُؤْلُؤًا وَلِبَاسُهُمْ فِيهَا حَرِيرٌ

23.            Inna Allaha yudkhilu allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati jannatin tajree min tahtiha alanharu yuhallawna feeha min asawira min thahabin waluluan walibasuhum feeha hareerun
(On the other side) Those people who brought Faith and did righteous deeds, Allh will admit them to such Gardens underneath which canals will be flowing. There they will be beautified with bracelets of gold and pearls and their garments will be of silk.

وَهُدُوا إِلَى الطَّيِّبِ مِنَ الْقَوْلِ وَهُدُوا إِلَى صِرَاطِ الْحَمِيدِ

24.            Wahudoo ila alttayyibi mina alqawli wahudoo ila sirati alhameedi
They were guided to accept the pure Word (L ilha ill-Allh) and they were shown the Path of Allh all Praise-Worthy.

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَيَصُدُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ الَّذِي جَعَلْنَاهُ لِلنَّاسِ سَوَاء الْعَاكِفُ فِيهِ وَالْبَادِ وَمَن يُرِدْ فِيهِ بِإِلْحَادٍ بِظُلْمٍ نُذِقْهُ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ

25.            Inna allatheena kafaroo wayasuddoona AAan sabeeli Allahi waalmasjidi alharami allathee jaAAalnahu lilnnasi sawaan alAAakifu feehi waalbadi waman yurid feehi biilhadin bithulmin nuthiqhu min AAathabin aleemin
Those people who committed infidelity (Kufr) and those who are stopping (today) from the Path of Allh and hinder the visitation of Masjid-al-Harm (at Makkah) which WE have made for all the people, where the rights of the natives and the foreigners (visitors) are equal (their attitude is surely punishable). Whoever will adopt the way of oppression except peace in it (Masjid-al-Harm) WE shall make him/her to taste a painful torment. (R) 10

وَإِذْ بَوَّأْنَا لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ مَكَانَ الْبَيْتِ أَن لَّا تُشْرِكْ بِي شَيْئًا وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ

26.            Waith bawwana liibraheema makana albayti an la tushrik bee shayan watahhir baytiya lilttaifeena waalqaimeena waalrrukkaAAi alssujoodi
Recall that time when WE suggested the place of this Home (Masjid-al-Harm) for Ibrhim (with this guidance) that do not associate anything with ME, and sanctify MY House for those who circulate around it (perform Tawf) and who stand and bow down and prostrate (in prayer),

وَأَذِّن فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالًا وَعَلَى كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِن كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ

27.            Waaththin fee alnnasi bialhajji yatooka rijalan waAAala kulli damirin yateena min kulli fajjin AAameeqin
And give general invitation to mankind for Hajj (pilgrimage) that they should come to you on foot and riding camels from every place faraway or near,

لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنَافِعَ لَهُمْ وَيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَّعْلُومَاتٍ عَلَى مَا رَزَقَهُم مِّن بَهِيمَةِ الْأَنْعَامِ فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْبَائِسَ الْفَقِيرَ

28.            Liyashhadoo manafiAAa lahum wayathkuroo isma Allahi fee ayyamin maAAloomatin AAala ma razaqahum min baheemati alanAAami fakuloo minha waatAAimoo albaisa alfaqeera
So that they may witness the benefits which are placed in it for them, and in the prescribed days (10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th day of Dhul-Hijjh) pronounce the Name of Allh over those animals which Allh has given them (Allh-u-Akbar, Allh-umma Minka WA Ilaik), they should eat (from that meat) and also give to the poor and indigent,

ثُمَّ لْيَقْضُوا تَفَثَهُمْ وَلْيُوفُوا نُذُورَهُمْ وَلْيَطَّوَّفُوا بِالْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ

29.            Thumma lyaqdoo tafathahum walyoofoo nuthoorahum walyattawwafoo bialbayti alAAateeqi
Then they should remove their dirt (shaving and cutting of hair, Mansik of Hajj) and fulfill their commitments, and circulate around (perform Tawf of) this Ancient House (the Ka'bah in Makkah).

ذَلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ حُرُمَاتِ اللَّهِ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ عِندَ رَبِّهِ وَأُحِلَّتْ لَكُمُ الْأَنْعَامُ إِلَّا مَا يُتْلَى عَلَيْكُمْ فَاجْتَنِبُوا الرِّجْسَ مِنَ الْأَوْثَانِ وَاجْتَنِبُوا قَوْلَ الزُّورِ

30.            Thalika waman yuAAaththim hurumati Allahi fahuwa khayrun lahu AAinda rabbihi waohillat lakumu alanAAamu illa ma yutla AAalaykum faijtaniboo alrrijsa mina alawthani waijtaniboo qawla alzzoori
This was (the purpose of building the Ka'bah) and whoever honors the sacred things established by Allh then it is best for him/her in the Sight of his Rbb. And the cattle are made lawful for you, except those things, which have been told to you. Therefore get away from the filth of idols; avoid from the lies (false statements),

حُنَفَاء لِلَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِهِ وَمَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا خَرَّ مِنَ السَّمَاء فَتَخْطَفُهُ الطَّيْرُ أَوْ تَهْوِي بِهِ الرِّيحُ فِي مَكَانٍ سَحِيقٍ

31.            Hunafaa lillahi ghayra mushrikeena bihi waman yushrik biAllahi fakaannama kharra mina alssamai fatakhtafuhu alttayru aw tahwee bihi alrreehu fee makanin saheeqin
Become the servants of Allh with loyalty (Hunaf' Lillh); do not associate anyone with HIM. And whoever associates partners (commits shirk) with Allh then as if he/she has fallen from the sky, now either birds will snatch him/her away or the wind will blow him/her off and throw at such place where he/she will be burst into pieces.

ذَلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ شَعَائِرَ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّهَا مِن تَقْوَى الْقُلُوبِ

32.            Thalika waman yuAAaththim shaAAaira Allahi fainnaha min taqwa alquloobi
This is the reality of the matter (understand it well), and whoever respects the symbols established by Allh then it is truly from the piety of the heart.

لَكُمْ فِيهَا مَنَافِعُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى ثُمَّ مَحِلُّهَا إِلَى الْبَيْتِ الْعَتِيقِ

33.            Thalika waman yuAAaththim shaAAaira Allahi fainnaha min taqwa alquloobi
You have the right to take benefit from them (the cattle of sacrifice) for an appointed term, then their place (of sacrifice) is near the ancient House (the Harm). (R) 11

وَلِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا لِيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَى مَا رَزَقَهُم مِّن بَهِيمَةِ الْأَنْعَامِ فَإِلَهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَلَهُ أَسْلِمُوا وَبَشِّرِ الْمُخْبِتِينَ

34.            Walikulli ommatin jaAAalna mansakan liyathkuroo isma Allahi AAala ma razaqahum min baheemati alanAAami failahukum ilahun wahidun falahu aslimoo wabashshiri almukhbiteena
WE have fixed a way of sacrifice for every nation so that the people (of that nation) should pronounce the Name of Allh over those animals, which HE has granted them.
(In these different ways the purpose is only one) Therefore, your Allh (Ilh) is only One Allh (Ilh) and you only submit to HIM. And O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), give glad tidings to those who have adopted the way of humbleness (Mukhbitin),

الَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ اللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَالصَّابِرِينَ عَلَى مَا أَصَابَهُمْ وَالْمُقِيمِي الصَّلَاةِ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ

35.            Allatheena itha thukira Allahu wajilat quloobuhum waalssabireena AAala ma asabahum waalmuqeemee alssalati wamimma razaqnahum yunfiqoona
Their condition is such that when they hear about Allh their hearts tremble with fear, whatever calamity comes on them they strive with patience, establish prayer (Salt), and whatever provisions WE have given them (they) spend from it.

وَالْبُدْنَ جَعَلْنَاهَا لَكُم مِّن شَعَائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُمْ فِيهَا خَيْرٌ فَاذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهَا صَوَافَّ فَإِذَا وَجَبَتْ جُنُوبُهَا فَكُلُوا مِنْهَا وَأَطْعِمُوا الْقَانِعَ وَالْمُعْتَرَّ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرْنَاهَا لَكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

36.            Waalbudna jaAAalnaha lakum min shaAAairi Allahi lakum feeha khayrun faothkuroo isma Allahi AAalayha sawaffa faitha wajabat junoobuha fakuloo minha waatAAimoo alqaniAAa waalmuAAtarra kathalika sakhkharnaha lakum laAAallakum tashkuroona
And WE have included the camels (of sacrifice, the Budn) for you in the Symbols of Allh there is good for you in them, therefore make them to stand and pronounce the Name of Allh over them, and when (after sacrifice) their backs touch the ground
then eat yourselves from it and also feed those who are sitting in gratification and also to those who submit their need. WE have subjected these animals for you in this way so that you may be grateful.

لَن يَنَالَ اللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلَا دِمَاؤُهَا وَلَكِن يَنَالُهُ التَّقْوَى مِنكُمْ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

37.            Lan yanala Allaha luhoomuha wala dimaoha walakin yanaluhu alttaqwa minkum kathalika sakhkharaha lakum litukabbiroo Allaha AAala ma hadakum wabashshiri almuhsineena
It is neither their meat nor blood that reaches Allh -- but it is your piety, which reaches HIM. HE has subjected them for you in this way so that you may proclaim HIS Greatness on the Guidance HE has given you. And O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), give good news to the pious people (Muhsinn).

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُدَافِعُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ خَوَّانٍ كَفُورٍ

38.            Inna Allaha yudafiAAu AAani allatheena amanoo inna Allaha la yuhibbu kulla khawwanin kafoorin
Certainly, Allh defends from the side of those people who have brought Faith. Certainly, Allh does not like any treacherous denier of blessings. (R) 1
2

أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ

39.            Othina lillatheena yuqataloona biannahum thulimoo wainna Allaha AAala nasrihim laqadeerun
Permission has been granted to those people against whom the war is directed, because they are the oppressed, and certainly, Allh is able to help them (with victory).

الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيَارِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَن يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

40.            Allatheena okhrijoo min diyarihim bighayri haqqin illa an yaqooloo rabbuna Allahu walawla dafAAu Allahi alnnasa baAAdahum bibaAAdin lahuddimat sawamiAAu wabiyaAAun wasalawatun wamasajidu yuthkaru feeha ismu Allahi katheeran walayansuranna Allahu man yansuruhu inna Allaha laqawiyyun AAazeezun
These are those people who have been expelled unjustly from their homes only because they used to say, "Our Rbb is Allh". If Allh does not keep turning away people with each other then monasteries and churches and synagogues (house of worship) and Masjids (Muslims place of worship) -- in which the Name of Allh is mentioned in abundance all would be overturned. Allh will surely help those people who will help HIM. Allh is Omnipotent and All-Mighty.

الَّذِينَ إِن مَّكَّنَّاهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ وَأَمَرُوا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَلِلَّهِ عَاقِبَةُ الْأُمُورِ

41.            Allatheena in makkannahum fee alardi aqamoo alssalata waatawoo alzzakata waamaroo bialmaAAroofi wanahaw AAani almunkari walillahi AAaqibatu alomoori
These are those people whom if WE give power to rule in the land then (they) will establish prayer (Salt) and will pay the poor-dues (Zakt), will order for the good (Al-Ma'rf) and will forbid from the evil (Al-Munkar). And the outcome of all the affairs is in the Hands of Allh.

وَإِن يُكَذِّبُوكَ فَقَدْ كَذَّبَتْ قَبْلَهُمْ قَوْمُ نُوحٍ وَعَادٌ وَثَمُودُ

42.            Wain yukaththibooka faqad kaththabat qablahum qawmu noohin waAAadun wathamoodu
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), if they (infidels) deny you then before them the people of Nh and 'Ad and Thamd,

وَقَوْمُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَقَوْمُ لُوطٍ

43.            Waqawmu ibraheema waqawmu lootin
And the people of Ibrhim and the people of Lout,

وَأَصْحَابُ مَدْيَنَ وَكُذِّبَ مُوسَى فَأَمْلَيْتُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُهُمْ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ نَكِيرِ

44.            Waashabu madyana wakuththiba moosa faamlaytu lilkafireena thumma akhathtuhum fakayfa kana nakeeri
And the dwellers of Madyan (Midian) have already rejected (their Prophets) and Msa was also disowned. At first, I granted respite to all of the deniers of Truth then seized them. Now see how MY Punishment was.

فَكَأَيِّن مِّن قَرْيَةٍ أَهْلَكْنَاهَا وَهِيَ ظَالِمَةٌ فَهِيَ خَاوِيَةٌ عَلَى عُرُوشِهَا وَبِئْرٍ مُّعَطَّلَةٍ وَقَصْرٍ مَّشِيدٍ

45.            Fakaayyin min qaryatin ahlaknaha wahiya thalimatun fahiya khawiyatun AAala AAurooshiha wabirin muAAattalatin waqasrin masheedin
How many wrongdoing towns, which WE have destroyed and today (they) are lying upside down on their roofs, how many wells are abandoned, and how many castles are with crumbling walls.

أَفَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ فَتَكُونَ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ يَعْقِلُونَ بِهَا أَوْ آذَانٌ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا فَإِنَّهَا لَا تَعْمَى الْأَبْصَارُ وَلَكِن تَعْمَى الْقُلُوبُ الَّتِي فِي الصُّدُورِ

46.            Afalam yaseeroo fee alardi fatakoona lahum quloobun yaAAqiloona biha aw athanun yasmaAAoona biha fainnaha la taAAma alabsaru walakin taAAma alquloobu allatee fee alssudoori
Have these people not traveled through the land that their hearts would be thoughtful or their ears would be hearing? The fact is that the eyes do not turn blind but those hearts turn blind, which are in chest.

وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالْعَذَابِ وَلَن يُخْلِفَ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ وَإِنَّ يَوْمًا عِندَ رَبِّكَ كَأَلْفِ سَنَةٍ مِّمَّا تَعُدُّونَ

47.            WayastaAAjiloonaka bialAAathabi walan yukhlifa Allahu waAAdahu wainna yawman AAinda rabbika kaalfi sanatin mimma taAAuddoona
These people are asking to hasten the calamity. Allh will never go against HIS Promise, but one-day of your Rbb is equal to thousand years of your count.

وَكَأَيِّن مِّن قَرْيَةٍ أَمْلَيْتُ لَهَا وَهِيَ ظَالِمَةٌ ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُهَا وَإِلَيَّ الْمَصِيرُ

48.            Wakaayyin min qaryatin amlaytu laha wahiya thalimatun thumma akhathtuha wailayya almaseeru
There are many towns, which were cruel, at first, I gave them respite, then seized them, and all have to return to ME. (R) 13

قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا أَنَا لَكُمْ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ

49.            Qul ya ayyuha alnnasu innama ana lakum natheerun mubeenun
O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), say, "O mankind, I am just like that person for you who clearly warns (before the bad time comes).

فَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ

50.            Faallatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati lahum maghfiratun warizqun kareemun
Then those who will bring Faith and do righteous deeds, there is forgiveness and true provisions (Rizqn Karm) for them.

وَالَّذِينَ سَعَوْا فِي آيَاتِنَا مُعَاجِزِينَ أُوْلَئِكَ أَصْحَابُ الْجَحِيمِ

51.            Waallatheena saAAaw fee ayatina muAAajizeena olaika ashabu aljaheemi
And those who will strive to betray OUR Revelation (Ayt) they are the friends of Hell.

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ مِن رَّسُولٍ وَلَا نَبِيٍّ إِلَّا إِذَا تَمَنَّى أَلْقَى الشَّيْطَانُ فِي أُمْنِيَّتِهِ فَيَنسَخُ اللَّهُ مَا يُلْقِي الشَّيْطَانُ ثُمَّ يُحْكِمُ اللَّهُ آيَاتِهِ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

52.            Wama arsalna min qablika min rasoolin wala nabiyyin illa itha tamanna alqa alshshaytanu fee omniyyatihi fayansakhu Allahu ma yulqee alshshaytanu thumma yuhkimu Allahu ayatihi waAllahu AAaleemun hakeemun
And O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), before you WE have neither sent any such Rasool nor any messenger (with whom this did not happen that) when he desired, Satan intruded in his desire. In this way whatever obstruction Satan creates, Allh eradicates it and makes HIS Revelation firm; Allh is Knowledgeable and All Wise.

لِيَجْعَلَ مَا يُلْقِي الشَّيْطَانُ فِتْنَةً لِّلَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ وَالْقَاسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ لَفِي شِقَاقٍ بَعِيدٍ

53.       LiyajAAala ma yulqee alshshaytanu fitnatan lillatheena fee quloobihim maradun waalqasiyati quloobuhum wainna alththalimeena lafee shiqaqin baAAeedin
(HE let this happen) So that (HE) may make the mischief caused by Satan a trial for those people in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy and disbelief) and whose hearts are impure--the fact is that these cruel people are gone far away in an enmity.

وَلِيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّكَ فَيُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ فَتُخْبِتَ لَهُ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهَادِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

54.             WaliyaAAlama allatheena ootoo alAAilma annahu alhaqqu min rabbika fayuminoo bihi fatukhbita lahu quloobuhum wainna Allaha lahadi allatheena amanoo ila siratin mustaqeemin
And the knowledgeable people should know that this is truth from your Rbb and they should bring Faith in it and their hearts should submit before HIM, certainly Allh always guides those to the right path who bring Faith.

وَلَا يَزَالُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فِي مِرْيَةٍ مِّنْهُ حَتَّى تَأْتِيَهُمُ السَّاعَةُ بَغْتَةً أَوْ يَأْتِيَهُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمٍ عَقِيمٍ

55.             Wala yazalu allatheena kafaroo fee miryatin minhu hatta tatiyahumu alssaAAatu baghtatan aw yatiyahum AAathabu yawmin AAaqeemin
Those who deny (denier of truth) will remain in doubt about it (Al-Qur'n) until either the Hour of Doom suddenly comes on them, or the calamity of unlucky day laid open them.

الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِّلَّهِ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ فِي جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ

56.             Almulku yawmaithin lillahi yahkumu baynahum faallatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati fee jannati alnnaAAeemi
On that day, Allh will be the owner of Kingdom, and HE will give ruling between them. Those who will have Faith and use to do righteous deeds they will enter into the blessed paradise,

وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَكَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا فَأُوْلَئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ

57.             Waallatheena kafaroo wakaththaboo biayatina faolaika lahum AAathabun muheenun
And those who will have committed infidelity (Kufr) and denied OUR Revelation (Al-Qur'n), there will be a humiliating torment for them. (R) 14

وَالَّذِينَ هَاجَرُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ قُتِلُوا أَوْ مَاتُوا لَيَرْزُقَنَّهُمُ اللَّهُ رِزْقًا حَسَنًا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ

58.             Waallatheena hajaroo fee sabeeli Allahi thumma qutiloo aw matoo layarzuqannahumu Allahu rizqan hasanan wainna Allaha lahuwa khayru alrraziqeena
And those people who migrated in the Path of Allh then (they) were killed or died, Allh will give them good provisions. And certainly, Allh is the Best Provider (of all).

لَيُدْخِلَنَّهُم مُّدْخَلًا يَرْضَوْنَهُ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَلِيمٌ حَلِيمٌ

59.             Layudkhilannahum mudkhalan yardawnahu wainna Allaha laAAaleemun haleemun
HE will send them to such a place with which they shall be delighted. No doubt, Allh is All-Knowing and Most Forbearing.

ذَلِكَ وَمَنْ عَاقَبَ بِمِثْلِ مَا عُوقِبَ بِهِ ثُمَّ بُغِيَ عَلَيْهِ لَيَنصُرَنَّهُ اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَفُوٌّ غَفُورٌ

60.             Thalika waman AAaqaba bimithli ma AAooqiba bihi thumma bughiya AAalayhi layansurannahu Allahu inna Allaha laAAafuwwun ghafoorun
This is their end, and whoever takes revenge, equal to the harm that had been done to him/her (tit for tat), and then has also been oppressed, then Allh will surely help him/her. Allh is Oft-Pardoning and Oft-Forgiving.

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ يُولِجُ اللَّيْلَ فِي النَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ النَّهَارَ فِي اللَّيْلِ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ

61.             Thalika bianna Allaha yooliju allayla fee alnnahari wayooliju alnnahara fee allayli waanna Allaha sameeAAun baseerun
This is because Allh is the One WHO brings the night from the day and the day from the night and HE is All Hearing and Most Observant.

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِ هُوَ الْبَاطِلُ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْكَبِيرُ

62.            Thalika bianna Allaha huwa alhaqqu waanna ma yadAAoona min doonihi huwa albatilu waanna Allaha huwa alAAaliyyu alkabeeru
This is because Allh is the Truth and all those are false (Btil) whom these people invoke except Allh and Allh is the Most Superior and the Most Respectable.

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاء مَاء فَتُصْبِحُ الْأَرْضُ مُخْضَرَّةً إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَطِيفٌ خَبِيرٌ

63.            Alam tara anna Allaha anzala mina alssamai maan fatusbihu alardu mukhdarratan inna Allaha lateefun khabeerun
Dont you see that Allh sends water (rain) from the sky and because of it, the land becomes green? The truth is that HE is the Most Delicate and Well-Acquainted.

لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ

64.             Lahu ma fee alssamawati wama fee alardi wainna Allaha lahuwa alghaniyyu alhameedu
Whatever is in the skies and in the earth (all that) belongs to HIM, no doubt HE is Most Generous and Praise Worthy. (R) 15

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَالْفُلْكَ تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِأَمْرِهِ وَيُمْسِكُ السَّمَاء أَن تَقَعَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَؤُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ

65.            Alam tara anna Allaha sakhkhara lakum ma fee alardi waalfulka tajree fee albahri biamrihi wayumsiku alssamaa an taqaAAa AAala alardi illa biithnihi inna Allaha bialnnasi laraoofun raheemun
Dont you see that HE (Allh, subhaana wa taaala) has subjected to you all that is in the earth, and HE has made the boat to follow the course that it sails in the sea by HIS Command, and HE is holding the sky in such a way that it cannot fall down without HIS Leave? The fact is that Allh is very Loving and Merciful for the mankind.

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَحْيَاكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَكَفُورٌ

66.            Wahuwa allathee ahyakum thumma yumeetukum thumma yuhyeekum inna alinsana lakafoorun
HE is the One WHO has given you life, HE gives you death, and then HE will give you life again. The truth is that mankind is a denier of reality.

لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا هُمْ نَاسِكُوهُ فَلَا يُنَازِعُنَّكَ فِي الْأَمْرِ وَادْعُ إِلَى رَبِّكَ إِنَّكَ لَعَلَى هُدًى مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

67.            Likulli ommatin jaAAalna mansakan hum nasikoohu fala yunaziAAunnaka fee alamri waodAAu ila rabbika innaka laAAala hudan mustaqeemin
WE have established a way of worship for every nation, which it follows, therefore O Prophet (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam), they should not dispute with you in this matter. You should invite (them) towards your Rbb. Certainly, you are on the Straight Path.

وَإِن جَادَلُوكَ فَقُلِ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

68.            Wain jadalooka faquli Allahu aAAlamu bima taAAmaloona
And if they argue with you then tell them, "Whatever you are doing Allh knows it very well,

اللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فِيمَا كُنتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ

69.            Allahu yahkumu baynakum yawma alqiyamati feema kuntum feehi takhtalifoona
On the Day of Judgment Allh will pass (HIS) judgment between you about which you are disputing."

أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاء وَالْأَرْضِ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ فِي كِتَابٍ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

70.            Alam taAAlam anna Allaha yaAAlamu ma fee alssamai waalardi inna thalika fee kitabin inna thalika AAala Allahi yaseerun
Dont you know that everything in the skies and the earth is in the Knowledge of Allh? Everything is written in the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfz). This is not difficult at all for Allh.

وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يُنَزِّلْ بِهِ سُلْطَانًا وَمَا لَيْسَ لَهُم بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِن نَّصِيرٍ

71.            WayaAAbudoona min dooni Allahi ma lam yunazzil bihi sultanan wama laysa lahum bihi AAilmun wama lilththalimeena min naseerin
These people are worshiping those (deities) except Allh for whom neither HE has sent any affirmation and nor they have any knowledge about them (those deities). There is no helper for these cruels (Zlimn).

وَإِذَا تُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتُنَا بَيِّنَاتٍ تَعْرِفُ فِي وُجُوهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا الْمُنكَرَ يَكَادُونَ يَسْطُونَ بِالَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِنَا قُلْ أَفَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذَلِكُمُ النَّارُ وَعَدَهَا اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ

72.            Waitha tutla AAalayhim ayatuna bayyinatin taAArifu fee wujoohi allatheena kafaroo almunkara yakadoona yastoona biallatheena yatloona AAalayhim ayatina qul afaonabbiokum bisharrin min thalikum alnnaru waAAadaha Allahu allatheena kafaroo wabisa almaseeru
And when OUR Clear Verses (Revelations) are recited to them then you see that the faces of the denial of truth start deforming, and it appears that right now they will attack on those people who recite OUR Verses (Revelations) to them. Tell them, "May I tell you what is the worse thing than it? (It is) The Fire (of Hell), Allh has promised it for those people who deny to accept the Truth, and it is the worst abiding place (destination)." (R) 16

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ ضُرِبَ مَثَلٌ فَاسْتَمِعُوا لَهُ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ لَن يَخْلُقُوا ذُبَابًا وَلَوِ اجْتَمَعُوا لَهُ وَإِن يَسْلُبْهُمُ الذُّبَابُ شَيْئًا لَّا يَسْتَنقِذُوهُ مِنْهُ ضَعُفَ الطَّالِبُ وَالْمَطْلُوبُ

73.             Ya ayyuha alnnasu duriba mathalun faistamiAAoo lahu inna allatheena tadAAoona min dooni Allahi lan yakhluqoo thubaban walawi ijtamaAAoo lahu wain yaslubuhumu alththubabu shayan la yastanqithoohu minhu daAAufa alttalibu waalmatloobu
O people, an example is given, listen carefully. Those deities whom you call except Allh if they collectively want to create a fly they cannot (do so--create it). Even if a fly snatches away anything from them, then they cannot get it back. The seekers of help are weak and from whom the help is pursued, they are also weak (feeble are the petitioners and powerless are those whom they petition).

مَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

74.            Ma qadaroo Allaha haqqa qadrihi inna Allaha laqawiyyun AAazeezun
These people have not recognized the Excellence of Allh as it has the right to be recognized. The fact is that Allh Alone is Omnipotent and Honorable.

اللَّهُ يَصْطَفِي مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ رُسُلًا وَمِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ

75.            Allahu yastafee mina almalaikati rusulan wamina alnnasi inna Allaha sameeAAun baseerun
The truth is that Allh also chooses HIS messengers (to deliver HIS message) from among the angels and as well as from the human beings. Allh is All-Hearer and Observant,

يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُرْجَعُ الأمُورُ

76.            YaAAlamu ma bayna aydeehim wama khalfahum waila Allahi turjaAAu alomooru
HE knows whatever is in front of the people as well as whatever is hidden from them, and all affairs are presented before Allh

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ارْكَعُوا وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ(Al- Sajjdah)

77.            Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo irkaAAoo waosjudoo waoAAbudoo rabbakum waifAAaloo alkhayra laAAallakum tuflihoona
O people who have brought Faith, bow down, and prostrate yourselves, serve your Rbb, and do righteous deeds; from it is expected that you may attain success

وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِي هَذَا لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلَاكُمْ فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلَى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ

78.            Wajahidoo fee Allahi haqqa jihadihi huwa ijtabakum wama jaAAala AAalaykum fee alddeeni min harajin millata abeekum ibraheema huwa sammakumu almuslimeena min qablu wafee hatha liyakoona alrrasoolu shaheedan AAalaykum watakoonoo shuhadaa AAala alnnasi faaqeemoo alssalata waatoo alzzakata waiAAtasimoo biAllahi huwa mawlakum faniAAma almawla waniAAma alnnaseeru
Strive hard or fight (Crusade, do Jihad) in the Path of Allh as one must strive for it. HE has chosen you for HIS work and has not kept any hardship in Deen (Islam, the way of life) for you. Be firm on the Nation (Faith) of your father Ibrhim. Allh has named you Muslims before and as well as in this (Al-Qur'n, you have the same name). So that the Rasool (Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind. Therefore establish prayer (Salt), pay the poor-dues (Zakt), and bound your-selves to Allh. HE is your Patron (Maul) HE is an Excellent Patron (Maul) and HE is an Excellent Helper.
(R) 17
