In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent And Lenient
Section   1
1 Ta Ha
2 We have not sent down the Quran to distress you
3 but as a reminder for those who fear
4 a Revelation from Him who created the Earth and the elevated Heavens
5 and then the Beneficent rose over the Throne
6 to Him belongs all that’s in the Heavens and Earth and all in between them as well as beneath the soil
7 and if you speak aloud, He knows the secrets and what is hidden
8 no God except Him, with the most beautiful Names
9 have you heard Moses story?
10 when he saw a Fire he said to his family “wait here I will go and see in case I can bring some fire or receive guidance”
11 and when he came near the Fire, he heard “Moses !”
12 “I am your Lord so take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa”
13 “for I’ve chosen you, listen to the Revelations”
14 “for I am Allah there is no God except Me so worship and perform the prayer for Me”
15 “the Hour is near but hidden, for every Soul to be rewarded for its deeds”
16 “don’t let the Disbelievers who follow their lust, divert and finish you”
17 “now! what’s in your right hand Moses?”
18 he said “my rod I lean on it and beat fodder for my flock besides other uses”
19 He said “throw it Moses!”
20 he did and it turned into a slithering Snake
21 “don’t be afraid catch it and it will be the same again”
22 “now put your hand to your side, it will come out white, not diseased this is Our sign”
23 “and to show you more greater Sign”
24 “go to Pharaoh who has exceeded all limits”
Section   2
25 (Moses said) “my Lord make my chest big”
26 “and my work easy”
27 “and remove the impediment from my tongue”
28 “so that they understand my words”
29 “and give me a helper from my family”
30 “my brother Aaron (Harun)”
31 “adding his strength to mine”
32 “making us share our work”
33 “to glorify You”
34 “and remember You much”
35 “because You see us well”
36 (Allah) said “your prayer is granted”
37 “and We had also favored you before”
38 “when We inspired your mother”
39 saying “put him in a chest and cast him into the river, he will be found on the banks by My and his enemy, I have clothed him with love so that he is trained according to My will”
40 your sister goes ahead and says “shall I show you someone who can look after the baby?” and so you came back to your mother cooling her eyes. but than you killed a man and We saved you from trouble, testing you repeatedly. than you stayed for some years with people of Midian and finally came here as We intended
41 “I choose you for Myself”
42 “go with your brother and My Sign and don’t be sluggish in My remembrance”
43 “both of you go to Pharaoh who has greatly gone astray”
44 “and both speak mildly he may listen”
45 they said “we are scared he might become a tyrant”
46 He said “don’t fear I am with you hearing and listening”
47 “both of you go and say” ‘we are Messengers sent by your Lord. don’t trouble the Children of Israel and let them go with us, for we bring Message of peace to those who follow right guidance”
48 “and it is revealed to us that punishment awaits the Rejectors”
49 Pharaoh said “who than is your Lord?”
50 “Our Lord is He who gives to each thing its Form and Nature. and Guidance”
51 said “what than is the condition of previous Generations?”
52 “My Lord has it in a Record Book He never mistakes nor forgets”
53 “He has made Earth as a bed for you with paths in it and has sent Water from the Sky thereby producing different kinds of Plants”
54 “for you to eat and feed your Cattle” these are Sign’s for intelligent people
Section   3
55 from there We’ve created you, and shall return you in there than again bring you out
56 we showed Pharaoh all our Sign but still he rejected
57 he said “Moses! with Magic you have come to drive us out of our land”
58 “we can match your Magic, let’s meet at a convenient place without fail”
59 Moses said “fine on Festival Day, let all people gather when the sun is up
60 so Pharaoh retreated and after summing up his plans returned
61 Moses said to them “woe to you, do not lie against Allah least He destroys you for lying”
62 and they doubted one another secretly
63 they said “both Magicians’ came to drive us out of our land and end the traditions”
64 “so organize your plans and come to war front, the winner shall succeed”
65 “they said “Moses, will you throw first or shall we?”
66 he said “you throw first!” and their ropes and rod started to move with Magic
67 and Moses felt scared
68 We said “don’t worry you are in control”
69 “now throw which is in your right hand it will eat up all their fake Magic for Magic trick never succeeds”
70 the Magician fell flat saying “we believe in Moses and Aaron’s God”
71 Pharaoh said “you believe in him without my permission? this must be your leader teaching you Magic, I will cut your hands and feet from opposite side and crucify you on Palm trees trunks to show you who can give lasting punishment”
72 they said “we prefer what has come to us, do whatever you want we will never regard you better than the Clear Signs”
73 “for we are Believers and hope our Lord forgives our faults and the Magic you made us perform, for Allah is better and permanent”
74 the guilty when they come to their Lord, for them is Hell where they will neither live nor die
75 but who comes to Him as Believers with good deeds will be in high Ranks
76 Garden of Eden with river flowing beneath, are the reward forever for the good
Section   4
77 We revealed to Moses “travel by night with my Devotees and strike without fear a dry path into the Sea, nor be afraid of being over taken”
78 Pharaoh pursued after them but the Water engulfed them completely
79 for Pharaoh, instead of guiding, he misguided his people
80 “O Children of Israel We saved you from your enemy and made an agreement with you on right side of the Mount and sent down Manna and Quails”
81 eat the good things provided by Us avoid evil otherwise on whomever My wrath falls they perish
82 without doubt I forgive repeatedly those who try to be good Believers
83 “O Moses! what made you haste from your people?”
84 he said “they close on my footsteps so i came to you to please You”
85 “We tested your people and in your absence the As-Samiri has led them astray”
86 Moses returned to his people angry and sad and said “O my people didn’t you get a good promise from the Lord? or was the wait too long? or did you wanted Lord’s wrath on you that you broke your promise to me”
87 they said “we did not break any promise ourselves but we were made to carry weights of peoples ornaments and cast them as As-Samiri suggested”
88 “he produced a calf body with a low sound saying this is yours and Moses God, and Moses has forgotten”
89 couldn’t they see it could not answer, nor benefit or harm them
Section   5
90 Aaron had already told them “my people this is your test. your Lord is the Beneficent so stop and obey me”
91 they said “we will not stop, until Moses returns”
92 (Moses) said “what stopped you when you saw them going astray”
93 “O Aaron why didn’t you follow my orders?”
94 he said “O my mother’s son! don’t seize my beard or hair for I feared you will say, that you have caused Children of Israel to divide without waiting for my word!”
95 (Moses) said “what have you to say Samiri?”
96 he replied “they didn’t see what i saw and i threw in a handful (dust) from the Messenger’s footprints as suggested by my Soul”
97 said “now go! for in this life say ‘don’t touch me!’ there is more in store for you. see! your god, we will burn it and scatter it over the Sea”
98 your God is one Allah, who is all Knowledgeable
99 We relate some stories of old to you, and gave you Message from Our Presence
100 if anyone rejects, they will carry a big load on Judgment Day
101 in that condition a sad burden on that Day!
102 the Day when the Trumpet will sound and We gather together all the criminals blue or blind-eyed
103 whispering to each other “it’s only been Ten (10) Days”
104 We know their talk when their best man says “it’s only been a Day”
Section   6
105 they ask regarding the Mountain say “my Lord will blast them into dust”
106 “and He will level it”
107 “nothing crooked or curved you will see there”
108 that Day they follow the caller, without crookedness, all sound hushed in the Lord’s presence except a faint murmur
109 none can intercede except who the Lord allows and permits
110 He knows their future and past in a way they cannot imagine
111 faces humbled before the Living the Eternal. those burdened with Sin are failures
112 but the good Believers need not fear of injustice or cuts
113 We have Revealed an Arabic Quran and explained in details with warnings to fear Allah and be warned
114 high above all is Allah the true King, don’t rush with the Quran until Revelations are completed but say “my Lord increase me in knowledge”
115 We had taken a promise from Adam but he forgot, also We didn’t find any determination in him
Section   7
116 when We said to the Angels “bow down to Adam. all did except Satan (Iblis)”
117 than We told Adam “this is your and your wife’s enemy don’t make him get you out of the Paradise and into misery”
118 “for there is enough for you not to go hungry or naked”
119 “nor from thirst or the Sun’s heat”
120 but Satan whispered “Adam shall I show the Tree of Life and an eternal Kingdom”
121 as a result they ate the fruit and their nakedness appeared. they started sewing leaves as cover. so Adam disobeyed the Lord and went astray
122 still Allah forgave him and gave him Guidance.
123 he said “get down from here you both with enmity among yourselves but if any Guidance come from Me and whoever follows it, will not go astray or grieve
124 but whoever turns away will have a hard life and be raised as blind on Judgment Day
125 and will say “Lord why have you raised me as blind now?”
126 He will say “you forgot Our Revelations likewise We forgot you!”
127 this how We requite them who transgress and disbelieves the Lords Sign, and the Hereafter is more grievous and lasting
128 can’t they think how many generations We’ve destroyed before them where they walk? a Sign for the intelligent
Section   8
129 they would’ve been punished, but because of the Lord’s past ruling and the term being fixed
130 be patient to what they say, celebrate and praise your Lord before rising and setting of the Sun. glorify Him part of the Night and ends of the Day that you may find solace
131 don’t get upset from things We gave for enjoyment to some as test. what Allah provides for you is better and more lasting.
132 command your family the prayer and be patient in it, We give sustenance not ask you for it, the ending is for the good
133 they say “why doesn’t he bring a Sign from his Lord. didn’t they see the proof in the previous Books”
134 and if We had punished them they would’ve said “my Lord why didn’t you send a Messenger so that we would’ve followed the Revelations before our humiliation and disgrace”
135 say “each one is waiting, so wait and see who is straight and on right path”

10 We did send Prophets before you to the ancient religious sects

14 even if We open the Heavens’ Gate’s and they keep climbing up
15 they’d say “our eyes are influenced by Magic”
Section   2

20 and provided for your survival, and survival of those whom you are not responsible for
21 there is not a thing whose stores We do not hold, and We only send it down in due measures

28 and your Lord said to the Angels “I am about to create a Man out of Clay of Mud molded”
29 “when I’ve made and breathed My Spirit into him, bow down and prostrate to him”
30 so all Angels together prostrated themselves

32 He said “O Satan why didn’t you prostrate with the others?”
33 said “i will not prostrate to a mortal made of Clay and altered into shape”

51 tell them about Abraham’s guest
52 when they came to him and said “Peace!” he replied “we are afraid of you”
53 they said “don’t be afraid we’ve come with good news of your forthcoming wise Son”
54 he said “now, you bring me this good news when i am old? what’s the use?”
55 they said “this is good news in truth, so don’t despair!”
56 he said “who despairs from Lord’s Mercy except those astray?”
57 he said “so what is your business O Messengers?”
58 they said “we’ve been sent to people deep in Sin”
59 “except the family of Lut, whom we shall save”
60 “but not his Wife who shall remain behind”
Section   5
61 and when the Messengers came to the family of Lut
62 he said “you people are unknown folks”

64 “for we bring you the Truth, and we tell the truth”
65 “travel in the remaining part of the Night with your family, follow behind them, let none to look back. do as ordered”

73 than the awful blast swept over them at sunrise
74 and We turned it upside down and rained on them stones of baked clay
75 surely in these are Sign’s for those who see
76 and they were right on the high road
77 surely in these are Sign for the Believers
78 the inhabitant of the Woods were also Sinner
79 so We took Our revenge on them, they were both visibly on open highway
Section   6
80 the inhabitants of the Rocky tract also denied the Messenger
81 We sent them Our Sign’s. but they constantly rejected
82 they made homes cut out from the Mountains and felt secure
83 but the blast seized them by early Morning
84 all their doings were useless!
85 We didn’t create Heavens and Earth and all between them except with truth, the Hour is surely coming so overlook their sins and forgive
86 for your Lord is the Creator the all Knowing
87 We’ve bestowed on you the Seven (7) often repeated Verse and the glorious Quran
88 do not strain your eyes or grieve looking at what We gave to certain class. and lower your wings towards the Believers
89 and say “Lo! i am just a Warner”
90 as We’ve send down on the dividers
91 who have made the Quran into parts
92 by the Lord! each one We shall call to account
93 regarding their doings
94 so announce what you are commanded, and avoid the Idolaters
95 Lo! We will defend you from those who jeer
96 who join other Gods with Allah, soon they will know
97 We do know why your Heart grieves from their talks
98 celebrate your Lords praise and join those who bow in admiration
99 serve your Lord until comes the expected Hour

Sura 11 – Hud (Hudd)

 

HUD (HUDD)

  • Revealed at:  Mecca
  • Sura:  11
  • Part: (11)/12
  • Total Verse:  123
In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent And Merciful
Section   1
1 Alif Lam Ra Verses of the Book perfected and explained further from the all-Knowing
2 worship none but Allah “i am sent by Him to warn and give you good News”
3 “repent and ask forgiveness from your Lord that He may grant happiness  from His grace for a Term to those eligible. but those who reject i fear  for them  doom of a great Day”
4 for to Allah you return and He is all Powerful
5 they cover their Breasts to hide from Him. even with clothing Allah knows what they hide or reveal. He the all-Knower of Hearts

HUD (HUDD)

  • Revealed at:  Mecca
  • Sura:  11
  • Part: 11 / (12)
  • Total Verse:  123
6 there is no Creatures living on Earth whose requirements are not dependent on Allah. He knows its dwelling and permanent resting place. all is recorded in a Clear Book  (Lauh-e-Mahfuz)
7 He created the Heavens and Earth in Six (6) Days and His Throne was on the Water, that He might try those whose deeds are best. but if you tell them “you shall be raised up after Death” the Disbelievers are sure to say “it’s Magic”
8 and if We delay the Doom until a said term they’ll say “what delays it?” but they’ll know the Day when it reaches them and surrounds their mockery
  Section   2
9 when We give mercy and then withdrew it, they become desperate and ungrateful
10 but after withdrawing We give Mercy, they say “i have no evil”. and become arrogant and  boastful
11 except ones who are patience doing good. for them is forgiveness and great Reward
12 in case you may feel uncomfortable to show part of what is Revealed, lest they may say “why doesn’t Angel or Treasure come down to him” remember you are only a Warner, Allah is the overall Guardian
13 or they say “this is invented” than ask them to bring (10) Ten Verses with any help other than Allah’s! if they are Truthful
14 “if they cannot then know this Revelation can only come from Allah for there is no God but Him. won’t you then become Muslims?”
15 whoever want the glittering life of this World they will get it in full measure
16 because for them, there is nothing in the Hereafter except Fire. vain are their desires with fruitless deeds
17 can they who rely on clear Sign’s from their Lord, and a Witness from Him recites it. and before it came the Book of Moses a Guidance and Mercy, they believe in it but those who reject, their place is in the Fire. this is the Truth from your Lord but then most of Mankind disbelieve
18 isn’t he wrong who invents a lie against Allah and when brought in front of their Lord their Witness say’s “they lied against their Lord. Allah’s curse on Wrongdoers”
19 “those who stop from Allah’s path and look for crookedness, are Disbelievers in the Hereafter”
20 such cannot escape from Earth neither have they any protector besides Allah, their penalty is twice as they were unwilling to listen or see
21 such have lost their own Souls and all that they’ve invented will vanish
22 they are great losers in the Hereafter
23 those who do good and are humble in front of their Lord will have home forever in Paradise
24 the likeness of both these groups are as; the blind and deaf, and the seer and hearer. won’t you than understand?
  Section   3
25 we sent Noah to his people he said “O people i have come here as a plain Warner”
26 “serve only Allah, otherwise a terrible Day awaits you”
27 the Disbelievers Chiefs said “we see you as ordinary Man like us, and only those rejected from us follow you with immature judgment. we don’t see you above us. in fact we think you are liars”
28 he said “my people see i have clear Sign and mercy from my Lord but you cannot comprehend it, can we force you to accept it since you hate it?”
29 “my people i don’t ask you for wealth, Allah will reward me. but i will not send away the Believers for they have to meet with their Lord,  and you, i realise are ignorant”
30 “my people who will save me from Allah if i drive them away. can’t you not think”
31 “i haven’t told you that i have Allah’s treasures or know the unseen or that i am an Angel. or said that Allah won’t be kind to ones whom your eyes hate. only Allah knows their Souls. otherwise i will be Wrongdoer”
32 they said “Noah you disagreed and extended the dispute, now show what you threaten us with if you are truthful”
33 he said “only Allah can show you and than you cannot escape from it”
34 “as much as i want it’s no use to advise you, if it be that Allah wants you astray, He is your Lord and to Him you return”
35 or do they say “he has made it up?”  tell them  “if i did it is my sin but i am free from your sins”
  Section   4
36 it was inspired to Noah “none of your people believe except those who had already believed so don’t despair over their deeds”
37 “construct a Ship (Ark) under Our eyes and inspiration and don’t speak again about the Sinners for they are about to drown”
38 so he started constructing a Ship (Ark). the chiefs made fun of him as they passed by. and he replied “if you mock us now we can soon do likewise”
39 “for soon you shall know on whom lasting shameful doom falls”
40 finally by Our command the oven erupted and We said “board with pairs; Two (2) of each kind along with your family, except those on whom the word has already gone forth and the Believers; and none believed him except few
41 He said “board it in Allah’s name, whether it rests or moves, for the Lord is oft-Forgiving, Merciful”
42 so it floated with them on waves like mountains and Noah called his Son who was apart “join me! don’t be with the Disbelievers”
43 his Son replied “i will climb Mountain and escape from the water” he replied “today none can escape from Allah’s Commandment” except he who has His mercy and a huge wave came between them and drowned him
44 it was said “O Earth! absorb the Water and Sky stop! (Rain)” the water subsided, fulfilling the Command. it (Ark) rested on Mount Judi and it was said “away with the Sinners”
45 Noah called the Lord begging “my Lord my Son is my family and Your promise is true. You are a fair Judge”
46 He replied “Noah he is not your family he was evil so do not ask for what you don’t know. I warn you don’t be  like the ignorant”
47 Noah said “O my Lord i seek refuge in you for asking for things i don’t know. if you don’t forgive me and have Mercy i will be lost”
48 it was said “Noah disembark with Peace and blessings from Us. for a long time there will be enjoyment for the people than from Us a disaster
49 these are some of the stories We reveal to you which no one knows, be patient. the end is for those who are Pious
 Section   5 
50 sent to A’ad people, was Hud their brother who said “my people worship Allah you have no other God but He. you only but  invent”
51 “my people i am not asking you for reward, that  will come from my Creator don’t you understand ”
52 “my people ask forgiveness and repent. He will give abundant Rain and power to your strength. do not turn back to sin”
53 they said “Hud you have no proof, we won’t leave our Gods  on your words, we do not  believe you”
54 “we think that some of our God’s has possessed you with evil” he replied “i call Allah to be my witness and bear witness, that i am free from what you join partners”
55 “others with Him! so you all scheme, without giving me a break”
56 “i trust Allah, mine and your Lord. He can grasp any moving Creature from their Forefront!
57 “even though you turn away, my Job is to convey the Message. He will put in your place other people, and you cannot do a thing about it. He’s overall Guardian”
58 when Our Command  came into force, we saved Hud and the Believers from terrible Doom
59 these were the A’ad’s, who rejected Signs from their Lord and disobeyed His Messenger. and followed the Sinners
60 with a curse following them for rejecting, A’ad disbelieved their lord;  so ‘away with A’ad, people of Hud’
  Section   6
61 and sent to Thamud their brother Salih, he said “O my people worship Allah you have no God but Him. He brought you forth from Earth and established you. ask repentance  for my Lord will always Respond”
62 they said “Salih, you are one of us, still you asked us not to follow what our fathers worshiped? we do doubt your words”
63 he said “just think if this is a clear proof from Allah with His Mercy, who will than save me from Him if i disobeyed? what a loss you’ll put me into”
64 “O my people this she Camel is a Sign for you from Allah. let her graze freely on Earth and do not harm her lest a harm seizes you”
65 but they killed her, so He said “enjoy for Three (3) Days at home this is a threat that cannot be ignored!”
66 upon issuance of Our Command. with Our mercy We saved Salih and those who believed with him from humiliation of that Day, for your Lord is all-Mighty, Powerful
67 a huge Blast came over those Wrongdoers and they lay flat in their homes
68 as if they had never lived there. for Thamud’s rejected their Lord;  “away with Thamud”
Section   7
69 Our Messenger’s came to Abraham with greeting saying “Peace!” he replied “Peace” and hurriedly brought for them a roasted calf
70 but when their hands didn’t touch the foods he became suspicious with fear from them. they said “don’t fear us we’ve been sent against people of Lut”
71 his Wife standing by laughed when We gave her good news of Isaac and then Jacob”
72 she said “how can i bear a child for i am an old Woman and my husband an old Man. but that would be wonderful!”
73 they said “you wonder at Allah’s command? His blessings is upon the people of this household, for He’s all-Praiseworthy, Glorified”
74 with his fears reduced and with the good news Abraham  started to plead to Us for the people of Lut
75 for Abraham was tolerant, humble and repentant towards Allah
76 “Abraham don’t ask this as Our Commandment has already been issued and disaster cannot be stopped!”
77 when our Messenger came to Lut he was sad and powerless and said “today is a Day of Distress”
78 his people came rushing towards him. they were used to commit crimes (sodomy). he said “my people, marry my Daughters, fear Allah don’t shame me in front of my guests! isn’t there any upright Man?”
79 they replied “we don’t need your Daughters, you know what we want”
80  he said “wish i had power to stop you or had any powerful support”
81  “O Lut! we are Messengers from your Lord! they cannot reach you! so travel with your family while Night remains and don’t look back leave your Wife to her will and whatever happens to them will happen to her. the appointed time is Morning. isn’t Morning near!”
82 on the onset of Our Commandment. We turned (the Cities) upsides down and rained on them layers after layers of hard baked Brimstones
83 marked from your Lord, for destruction is never far from  Sinners
  Section   8
84 sent to the people of Madyan, was their brother Shu’aib, he said “O my people worship Allah you have no other God but Him. don’t cheat on Weights and Measure i see you wealthy but i worry for you from the Day that will surround you”
85 O my people give correct measure what is due to them. avoid corruptions  and mischief in the Land
86 “what Allah leaves for you is best if you believe. and i am not you’re Guardian”
87 they said “Shu’aib! does your Prayer commands us to give up what our fathers worshiped or that we give up what we do with our property? oh how right you are!
88 “my people see i have clear Sign’s from Allah who takes good care of me. i am not against you but want your betterment, and your success can only come from Allah in Him i trust and repent”
89 “O my people don’t let my break-up from you cause you to sin, in case you have the same fate like the people of Noah, Hud, Salih and Lut who are not far behind”
90 ask forgiveness and Repentance from my Lord for He is most-Merciful, Kind
91 they said “O Shu’aib we do not understand what you say, you are weak if it wasn’t for your family, we would’ve stoned you for you are powerless against us”
92 he said “is my family more important than Allah that you’ve cast Him behind. but my Lord covers you from all sides”
93 “do whatever you want while i do what i like. soon disaster will strike the lairs. lets both see”
94 on the start of Our command and with Our Mercy we saved Shu’aib and those who believed, and a mighty Blast laid the Wrongdoers flat in their homes
95 as if they’d never lived there. “away with Madyan and away with Thamud’s”
  Section   9
96 and We sent Moses with Our Revelations and Authority
97 to Pharaoh and his Chiefs; but they followed Pharaoh’s evil commands
98 he will go ahead before his people into the Fire on Judgment Day. all led to a miserable place
99 followed by Our curse, an evil gift, on Judgment Day
100 these are some of the stories of the Communities. you can  see some and some no longer exists
101 We did not wrong them but they wronged themselves. when  Our Command came, their god’s couldn’t give them anything except ruin
102 the Lords grasp is very painful, if in the middle a Township commits  crime, His punishment is  terrible
103 this lesson is for those who fear punishment of the Hereafter, when Mankind will be gathered together on a Day that’s to be witnessed
104 We won’t delay it, it has a fixed Term
105 on that Day none can speak except with His permission, with some being miserable and some happy
106 and in the Fire with sighs and sobs will be the miserable ones
107 living there for as long as Heavens and Earth can bear them. or whatever Allah has planned
108 in the Gardens will be the happy ones living there for as long as Heavens and Earth can bear them. or whatever Allah has planned. a lasting gift
109 don’t doubt regarding these people what they or their fathers worshiped, for without fail they shall get their due
  Section   10
110 indeed We gave the Book to Moses but differences arose within them. if the Lord hadn’t given His word earlier, the matter would’ve been settled between them. they are in doubt concerning it
111 to each, you’re Lord will pay back in full. for their deeds for He knows their doings
112 so stand firm and straight as commanded along with those with you and do not sin. for He Sees
113 don’t lean towards wrong for the Fire will get you, and none can protect or help you except Allah
114 Pray regularly at Two (2) ends of the Day and part of the Night. you’re Good deeds will cancel your Bad deeds. a Reminder to think about
115 be tolerant, for Allah doesn’t waste good-doers Rewards
116 if only there had been people before you with some goodness, to warn others from corruptions on Earth as did the few whom We saved. but the wrongdoers follow enjoyment of good things in Life and still sin
117 your Lord will not destroy Township if the people were good
118 if your Lord wanted He would’ve made the Human race one Nation, still their dispute won’t stop
119 except on whom your Lord has Mercy, this is why He created them. your Lords word is final when He says “I shall fill Hell with Jinn’s and Mankind”
120 all the stories we tell you of the Messengers to make your Heart strong. with Truth and Warning and a Reminder for Believers
121 say to the Disbelievers “act however you want, we are too”
122 “you wait! so are  We”
123 to Allah belongs the Secrets of Heavens and Earth, all is referred back to Him, so worship and trust Him. regarding your action’s He isn’t Unaware

Sura 10 – Jonah (Younus)

JONAH (YOUNUS)

  • Revealed at:  Makka
  • Sura:  10
  • Part: 11
  • Total Verses: 109
In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent And Merciful
Section 1
1 Alif Lam Ra  these are Verses from  the Book of Wisdom
2 Mankind, don’t they wonder how We’ve sent inspiration to a Man from amongst them. saying; warn Mankind and convey good news of sure hold with their Lord. Disbeliever’s say “he’s a Magician?”
3 Allah created Heavens and Earth in Six (6) Days and then rose over the Throne, controlling and governing all things. none can interfere except by His leave. Allah! you’re Lord! won’t you than remember
4 to Him is your return. Allah’s promise is true. He who creates and repeats Creations, rewards the Righteous justly. His Rejecters will have nothing but boiling water to drink with terrible punishments
5 He who made the Sun a dazzling magnificence and Moon a Light with measured stages so that you can calculate the Year and Time. He explains in details His Sign for intelligent people
6 in alternating of Night and Day and in all Creations are His Sign for God-fearing people
7 those who feel that they will not meet Us and are pleased with their present worldly  Life and are unmindful
8 Fire will be their home!
9 Believers who do good Allah will guide them through their faith. beneath them Rivers flow in Gardens of Bliss ( Naeem )
10 and their cry will be “glory to you O’ Allah” and “Peace” and lastly “praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds!”
Section 2
11 if Allah would hurry to give people their ills as fast as they’d want Him to hurry their good, then their respite would be quickly decided. but We leave those who don’t believe in their meeting with Us to wander blindly in their defiance.
12 when in trouble a person cries to Allah lying on their sides, standing or sitting. but when We solve their problem, they forget Us, as if they didn’t cry for help. is it fair?
13 generations before you We’ve destroyed because they disbelieved their Messenger who came with clear Signs. that’s how We retaliate with the  Sinners
14 after them to test you We made you responsible for the Land
15 when Our Verses are recited those who don’t believe in meeting Us say “bring us another Quran or change this”. tell them “it’s not up to me i only follow what’s inspired in me otherwise i will faces punishment on the Great Day”
16 say “if Allah wanted i wouldn’t have recited it to you. i have lived among you a lifetime. don’t you understand”
17 who is more wrong than one who lies concerning Allah.  Sinners will never prosper
18 they worship besides Allah. that which cannot harm nor benefit them. they say “these are our intercessor” say  “can you tell Allah something new concerning Heavens and Earth”  glorified is He far above the Partner’s they join Him with
19 Mankind was one Community, but then they differed.  if it hadn’t been for a word given by your Lord their differences would have been settled
20 they say “why he doesn’t receive a Sign from his Lord” say “only Allah knows the unseen  let’s wait, i am waiting too”
Section   3
21 when We give Mercy to Mankind after problem they start planning against Our Sign’s say “Allah is swifter in planning”. Our Messenger’s are Recording all your plots”
22 it is He who enables you to travel through Land and on Ships. they sail in favorable wind but when in stormy weather with waves encircling them they ask Allah; “if You save us we will be thankful”
23 but when in safety they start defying. O Mankind! this is going against your own Souls enjoy now, but you’ll know when you return to Us
24 this present Life is like Water We send from the Sky to produces food for people and cattle, until the Earth is beautified.  people think they own it. but Our one command by Day or Night can finish it as if there was nothing. a Sign for the thinker
25 but Allah invites you to the House of Peace and guides whom He will on the right path
26 those who do good their Face will not be covered in dust nor shame for their home forever is in Paradise
27 the reward for evil is Evil. they won’t have Allah’s backing with their Face covered in pieces of darkness. with home forever in the Fire
28 one Day We shall gather them and ask the ones who associated Us with Partner’s, “stop at your place with those Partners” than We shall separate them and these partner’s will say “it wasn’t us that you worshiped”
29 “Allah is witness!  we didn’t know you worshiped us”
30 every Soul will know what they’ve sent before when they return to Allah their Lord. their lies will disappear  from them
Section   4
31 say “who provides you from the Sky and Earth, and gives power to Hearing and Sight, who brings out Living from the Dead and Dead from the Living and manage all affairs”  they’ll say “Allah! than won’t you fear”
32 such is Allah your Lord. after the Truth what else is there except False? then why you are reluctant?
33 thus your Lord’s word proved true against the rebels: that they believe not
34 say “can your ‘Partners’ originate Creation and repeat it. say “it’s only Allah who can, than why are you misled”
35 say “can your ‘Partners’ give Guidance” say “Allah leads to Truth. isn’t He who gives Guidance more deserving than he who doesn’t find Guidance and has to be guided. how do you judge?”
36 but most follow their useless desires which cannot take place of the Truth. Allah knows their doings
37 this Quran cannot be produced by anyone other than Allah! it’s the final confirmation and full explanation of the previous Books. no doubt it is from the Lord of the Worlds!
38 or do they say “he forged it” say “than bring a Sura like it and call anyone besides Allah if you are truthful!”
39 nay! they call it fake because they cannot understand. like those before them, than see the ending of the wrongdoers
40 some believe and some doubt. your Lord knows the mischief makers
Section   5
41 if they call it false say “for me are my deeds for you yours. you are not responsible for my deeds and i am not responsible for yours”
42 some listen to you but can you make the deaf hear even though they don’t grasp it
43 some do look at you but can you guide the blind even though they cannot see
44 Allah is not unjust to Mankind in anyway but Mankind wrongs themselves
45 the Day when He shall gather them together. it will seem like only an Hour of a Day has passed, they will recognise each other but ruined will be ones who denied meeting with Allah and refused guidance
46 even if We show you part of Our promise or cause you to die before that. in any case their return is to Us. Allah is witness of their doings
47 every Community has a Messenger. and in front of the Messenger the matter will be fairly judged without mistake
48 they say “truly! when will this promise be?”
49 say “i have no power for loss or gain except as Allah wills: every Community there is a term appointed and when the time comes non can delay an Hour or advance it”
50 say “do you see the doom coming by Night or Day. which part the Sinners would like to speed up”
51 “would you than believe when it befalls on you. that you wanted to rush it”
52 “finally it will be said to the wrongdoers ‘taste your punishment forever. isn’t your repayment anything except what you’ve earned? ”
53 they ask you “is this true?” say “yes by Lord non can escape it”
Section   6
54 all those who Sinned will want to give all they have as ransom, and ask for forgiveness upon seeing the Doom  but they’ll be justly Judged without doubt
55 doesn’t all in the Heavens and Earth belong to Allah? His promise is true but most don’t understand
56 He who gives Life and takes it away and to Him you’ll return
57 Mankind! Allah has given good advice to fix your ailing Heart. a Guidance and Mercy for the Believers
58 say  “it is better to enjoy Allah’s mercy and gifts rather than hoard it”
59 say “have you noticed what Allah has sent down, and how you’ve made certain things lawful or unlawful” say “did Allah permit you this or do you invent a lie against Him?”
60 what do they think who invent lie against Allah regarding Judgment Day? still Allah gives to Mankind but most are ungrateful
Section 7
61 whatever you do or which part of Quran you recite, every deed We witness, nothing is hidden from your Lord a weight of an Atom on Earth or Heavens, big or small all is recorded in a clear Record. (Kitab-al Mobeen)
62 without doubt Allah’s friends shall not fear or grieve
63 nor the Believers who stay away from evil
64 good news for them in Life of this World and the Hereafter. in Allah’s word – a Supreme Achievement!
65 do not let their talks upset you. all power belongs to Allah. He the all-Hearer, Knower
66 everything in Heavens and Earth belongs to Allah. whoever worship others are following  a delusion and lies
67 He who’s has made Night for rest and Day to make things visible. in these are Sign’s for people who heed
68 they say “Allah has a Son” Glory be! He is self-sufficient owner of all in the Heavens and Earth! what right have you to say things you don’t know!
69 say “those who lie against Allah will never succeed”
70 only short enjoyment in this World, than they return to Us where Disbelievers will taste severest punishment
Section 8
71 tell them the story of Noah when he said to his people “my people if you feel offended by my reminding you regarding Allah’s Sign which i trust. decide than whatever you plan with your Partners, and hesitate not to sentence  me”
72 “if you turn away i ask no reward from you. my reward is from Allah and i am Commanded to be a Muslim”
73 but they rejected him. so We saved him and his people in the Ship (Ark). and repeatedly made them Rulers. We drowned the Disbelievers. so see their ending
74 later We sent other Messengers with clear Signs but they rejected them like before. so We sealed the Hearts of Transgressors
75 after them We sent Moses and Aaron with Our Sign to Pharaoh and his Chiefs but the arrogant sinful people rejected them too
76 when they got the Truth they said “it’s clear Magic”
77 Moses said “you say this regarding the Truth after it has reached you. is this Magic? but then  Magicians never prosper”
78 they said “have you come to turn us away from the followings of our forefathers so that you and your brother achieve greatness in the Land! we won’t believe you”
79 Pharaoh said “call all great Magicians”
80 when the Magician’s arrived Moses said “cast what you will”
81 when the Magicians did cast Moses said “what you bring is Magic! and Allah does not back Evildoers work”
82 “Allah justifies Truth by His words much to the hatred of Wrongdoers”
Section 9
83 none believed in Moses except some Children. for fear of Pharaoh and his Chiefs who were mighty on Earth and sinister breaking all bounds
84 Moses said “my people if you believe in Allah than put your trust in Him”
85 they said “in Allah we trust please don’t make us a trial for the tyrant”
86 “and save us with your Mercy from the  disbelieving folks”
87 We inspired this Message to Moses and his brother “provide homes for your people in Egypt, make your homes as place of Worship and Pray. also give Believers the good news”
88 Moses prayed “my Lord You’ve provided Pharaoh with so much wealth and splendor that my people get misled by them. O Lord! destroy their wealth and make their Heart hard so that they won’t believe until they see painful Doom”
89 Allah replied “your Prayers are accepted be firm and straight. don’t follow  the ignorant”
90 We took the Children of Israel across the Sea with the tyrant Pharaoh and his Men following. but when the flood engulfed them Pharaoh said “i believe there is no God but He whom the Children of Israel believe and i am a Muslim”
91 “ah! now you believe, but sometimes back you were rebellious and evil”
92 “this Day We shall save you in your body as a warning for those after you. still many are heedless of Our Sign!”
Section 10
93 to the Children of Israel We gave beautiful homes with best things. but after receiving knowledge they differed. your Lord  will judge on Judgment Day in what they differed in
94 if you doubt then ask the people who have read the previous Books? this is the Truth from your Lord
95 and don’t be one of them who doubt Allah’s Sign for you’ll be a loser
96 to them even if the Lord’s word is verified, they still won’t believe
97 even if all Sign’s were brought to them until they themselves see the Doom
98 if only there was a Township that believed, and benefited from it. like the people of Jonah and for them we removed humiliation from their Life and gave them comfort for a while
99 if it was Lord’s will then all on Earth would be Believers. so won’t you than, compel Mankind to believe!
100 none can believe unless Allah wills. His wrath will be on the heedless
101 say – all whatever in the Heaven’s and Earth; still no Sign’s nor warnings can benefit those who Disbelieve
102 can they expect anything like what happened in the past; say “wait! for i am waiting too”
103 finally We save our Messengers and the Believers. thus it’s befitting for Us to save those who believe
Section 11
104 say “O Mankind! if you doubt my Religion know that i will not worship what you worship besides Allah. i worship Allah who will take your Soul’s and has Commanded me to be a Believer”
105 “and face entirely towards upright Religion and don’t be of those who join Partners”
106 “do not call any other, except Allah. none can give benefit or loss. for if you do you’ll be Wrongdoers”
107 if Allah touches you with hurt none can remove it but Him. and none can stop any good going to you if He favors you or any Devotees. for He’s oft-Forgiving, Merciful
108 say “O Mankind since Truth has reached you from your Lord. those who receive Guidance benefits their own Souls whoever don’t are losers. and i am not here to check on you”
109 follow the Revelations inspired in you, be patient until Allah decides. for He’s the best Decision maker

Sura 8 Spoils Of War (Al-Anfal)

SPOILS OF WAR (AL-ANFAL)

  • Revealed at :  Medina    
  • Sura :  8
  • Part :  9 / 10    
  • Total verses :  75   
In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent And Merciful
Section 1
1 they ask you regarding the Booty say “War spoils belongs to Allah and His Messenger, so keep your relationship straight and obey them if you believe”
2 Believers’ Hearts quiver at the mention of Allah and their Faith and trust increases upon hearing His Revelations
3 those who Pray regularly and spend from the gifts We gave them
4 they are true Believers and rate highly with their Lord, receiving pardon and gifts
5 even when your Lord asked you to leave your Home for Truth, to the dislike of some Believers
6 disputing with you about the Truth after it’s verified, as if facing death
7 when Allah promised that you can have one of the Two (2) Parties and you chose the unarmed one. Allah willed victory for the Truth by His words and to cut off the roots of Disbelievers
8 so that Truth succeeds and falsehood fails much to the disappointment of the evil doers
9 remember when you asked your Lords help and He replied “I will help you with a Thousand (1000) Angels rank on rank”
10 Allah intended to give hope and to ease your heart. victory only comes from Allah, the Wise and Powerful
Section   2
11 remember when He made you fall asleep to calm you and cause rain from sky to fall and remove the blemish of Satan from you making your Heart strong and feet stable
12 also when your Lord inspired the Angels “I am with you, so support the Believers, I will put terror in the Hearts of Disbelievers, wound their necks and fingertips”
13 this because they opposed Allah and His Messenger and whoever opposes, Allah punishes severely
14 so “taste!  for Disbeliever’s torture is the Fire”
15 Believers! never turn your backs on Disbelievers when at War
16 anyone who does, unless necessary in War or to retreat to own troop, he will incur wrath of Allah and live in Hell, an evil destination
17 you did not kill them but it was Allah, and you did not throw but it was Allah to test the Believers, for He Hears and Knows all
18 and makes the Disbelievers plan weak
19 if you want decision, it is here now but if you stop it’s better. but if you persist We shall too, it is useless for you even if your forces were multiplied. for Allah is always with the Believers
Section   3
20 Believers obey Allah and his Messenger. do not turn away when you hear
21 don’t be like those who say “we hear” but don’t
22 the worst beasts in Allah’s sights are the deaf, dumb with no sense
23 if they were any good Allah would’ve made them listen, but they would’ve turned away rejecting
24 Believers, be attentive to Allah and His Messenger when He calls you, for Allah comes between an individual and his Heart and finally all return to Him
25 protect yourself from punishment which does not only fall on Wrongdoers. for Allah is strict in punishment
26 remember when you were few and weak in the Land and afraid that people might ruin you, how He protected, strengthened and provided good things for you so that you might be thankful
27 Believers, do not betray Allah and his Messenger or steal things entrusted to you
28 remember you’re possession and your children are just a trial, as your highest reward is with Allah
  Section   4
29 Believers! If you fear Allah, he will give you ways to remove evil from you and forgive you, for Allah has infinite Bounty
30 remember how the Disbelievers schemed against you to imprison, kill or drive you away. they plotted but Allah planned too for He’s the best of Planners
31 when our Revelation is recited to them they say “we’ve heard before and can speak like this, these are stories of old”
32 remember how they said “O Allah! if this is true then send a Rain of stones or a painful doom”
33 but Allah would not send while you were among them or while they asked for pardon
34 but what excuse do they have that Allah should not punish them, when they stop people from entering the Sacred Mosque. they are not it’s Guardians? only the Pious can be Guardians. but most do not understand
35 their prayer at the house is nothing but whistling and clapping hands “so taste the punishment for your disbelief”
36 the Disbelievers spend their wealth preventing people from Allah’s path. they will continue but in the end will have only regrets and assemble in Hell
37 so that Allah may separate the evil from the good. He will heap evil losers into Hell
Section   5
38 tell the Disbelievers if they cease, their past will be forgiven but if they persist then they have examples of the Ancient punishments
39 and fight them till there is no mischief and becomes the Religion all of it for Allah. but if they stop surely Allah sees their work
40 and if they refuse, know that Allah is your best Helper and Protector

SPOILS OF WAR (AL-ANFAL)

  • Revealed at :  Medina    
  • Sura :  8
  • Part :  9 /( 10)    
  • Total verses :  75   
41 remember one fifth (1/5th) one fifth of the Booty you gained, belongs to Allah and His Messenger, near Relatives, Orphans, Needy who don’t beg and Wayfarers. that is if you believe in Allah and the Revelations that He revealed to his Devotee on day of Rules, when the Two (2) armies met, for Allah can do all
42 when you were on near side of the valley and they on far side and the Caravan lower then you, than even if you had chosen to meet you wouldn’t have. but in order to finalize what Allah ordained, that ones who dies, dies with clear proof or live, lives with clear proof. For Allah Hears and Knows all
43 remember when Allah showed them as few in your dream, but if Allah had shown them as many you would’ve surely weakened and disputed. Allah saved you for he knows your heart
44 and also upon encounter He showed them as few, in your eyes and they saw you as few too so that Allah ends the matter, for all things reverts back to Him
Section   6
45 Believers! when you meet with opposition be firm and remember Allah much, for success
46 obey Allah and His Messenger. do not dispute for you will lose strength. Allah is always with the Steadfast
47 don’t be like those who come out of their Homes boastfully to be seen by people and obstruct them from Allah’s way, still Allah surrounds their doings
48 when Satan made their work seem just to them saying “none can conquer Mankind today, i am protecting you” but when the Two (2) armies met he fled saying “i had nothing to do with you for i can see, what you cannot. Allah ‘s punishment is very harsh”
Section   7
49 the hypocrites and ones with diseased Hearts say “these people are misled by their Religion” but those who trust Allah, Allah is all Powerful, Wise
50 if you could see the Angels when they come to take the Disbelievers Soul they slash their Faces and backs saying “taste punishment of Hell Fire”
51 “this, because of what your hand did, for Allah is not unjust to His Devotees”
52 “just like the punishments given to Pharaoh’s people and those before them for they rejected Allah’s Revelations so We destroyed them for their sins. for Allah is all Powerful severe in punishment”
53 “because Allah will never change an approval on people until they change their own selves. He Hears and Knows all”
54 like Pharaoh’s people and those before them who oppose their Lords Signs so We destroyed them and drowned all the people of Pharaoh for wrongdoings
55 Disbelievers are the worst creatures in Allah’s sight
56 they are the ones with whom you had an agreement but they break it each time and are not afraid of Allah
57 so if you triumph in War, than give them severe punishment so that their supporters flee and are taught
58 in case of disloyalty reply them in like. for disloyalty is disliked by Allah
Section   8
59 and don’t let the Disbelievers think they can escape for they can never save themselves
60 arm yourself fully in Warfare including Steeds etc, against Allah and your enemies and the enemies you may not know but He knows. whatever you spend Allah will reimburse and not treat you unjustly
61 if they want Peace, you too opt for Peace. trust Allah for He Hears and Knows all
62 but if their intention are to deceive than Allah is enough, He who has supported you with help and with Believers
63 He has united their hearts and even if you spend everything on Earth to join them you could not have done, but Allah did. He the most Powerful and Wise
64 O’ Messenger enough is Allah for you and your followers
Section   9
65 O’ Messenger! Encourage Believers to fight. because Twenty (20) devoted Believers can fight Two hundred (200) and One hundred (100) can fight One thousand (1000)
66 Allah has made your task easy, for He knows your weakness.  if there is One hundred (100) devoted Believers they can fight Two hundred (200) and One thousand (1000) can fight Two thousand (2000). Allah is with those who tolerate
67 taking prisoners does not befit a Prophet until he has made slaughter in the Land. you look for short term gains while Allah desires for you the Hereafter
68 had a previous rule not been there, you would’ve had severe punishment for Booty you took
69 now enjoy your Booty as lawful and good but be mindful. Allah is Forgiving and Merciful
Section   10
70 O’ Messenger!  tell the captives in your hands “if Allah finds any goodness in your Heart he will give better than what you’ve lost, He is oft-Forgiving most Merciful”
71 but if they deceive you like they deceived Allah before. Allah has given you power over them. For He is all Knower and Wise
72 Believers who left their Homes, wealth and lives to fight for Allah and those who helped them are each other friends and helpers. but those who did not emigrate, you do not need to protect them until they do. you can only help them regarding Religion, except those with whom you have a mutual pact. Allah is watching you
73 Disbelievers protect each other! and if you don’t do likewise, then there will be confusion and corruption on Earth
74 Believers who leave their Homes to fight for Allah and those who aid them are true Believers, for them is forgiveness of sin with generous provisions
75 those who later believed and left their Homes together with you, they are part of you. but blood Relatives have prior rights in the Order of Allah. for He is all Knower

2 a Book sent down to you, but don’t make your chest heavy from it that you may warn and caution the Believers
3 follow the Revelations sent to you by your Lord, don’t follow any protectors (Aulliya) except Him. little do you remember!
4 many a Town We’ve punished and destroyed by Night or while they slept at noon

6 We shall definitely question those to whom Our Message was sent and question the Messengers too
7 a­­­nd tell them with facts, for We were not absent
8 the Scale that Day will be correct. those with Heavy scales are the successful

10 it is We who established you on Earth with provisions for your livelihood. little thanks you give!
  Section   2
11 We created and shaped you; then said to the Angels “bow down to Adam” all did except Satan who refused to bow

13 He said “go down from this, here is no place for the arrogant and dishonored”
14 he said “give me leave till their revival”
15 (Allah) said “Lo! you are given leave”
16 (Satan) said “Since You’ve banished me. i will lie in wait for those following Your straight path”
17 “then i shall come upon them from their front, back, right or left. most of them you won’t find grateful”
18 (Allah) said “get out from here. you degraded outcast, I shall fill Hell with you all”
19 “Adam you and your Wife live in the Garden eat whatever you want but don’t go near this Tree otherwise you will be Sinners”
20 than Satan whispered to them suggestions to expose what was hidden of their Private Parts saying “your Lord stopped you from this Tree because you might become Angels or Immortal”
21 and he swore to them both saying “i am your sincere adviser”
22 thus he tricked them, and when they tasted from the Tree their Private Parts showed and they started covering themselves with the leaves of Paradise. their Lord called “didn’t I forbid you from this Tree and from Satan your enemy”
23 they said “Lord we were wrong. forgive us and have Mercy, otherwise we will surely be lost”
24 He said “get down with enmity among each other to live on Earth a place with provision provided  for a time”
25 “in it you shall live, die and then brought forth”
Section   3
26 O Children of Adam! We’ve revealed to you coverings to cover your shame and also for beauty, but cover from evil is best. a Sign from Allah for them to remember
27 O Children of Adam! don’t let Satan seduce you like he did to your Parents and made them leave Paradise naked, for he and his clan watches you from where you cannot see. We’ve made Satan a friend of the Disbelievers
28 when they do vulgarity they say “our Parents did it and Allah directed it on us” say “Allah does not command vulgarity so don’t say what you don’t know”
29 say “my Lord commands justice. and you should face Him alone at every place of worship, making His Religion pure. as He created you so shall you return”
30 some He guided, others chose Satan’s way and think they chose correctly
31 O Children of Adam! attend to your beautification at every prayer place, eat drink but without wasting for Allah dislikes wasters
Section   4
32 say: who has forbidden the gifts provided by Allah, the good pure things that are for His Devotees? say: such on Judgment Day will be for those who believed during their life in the World. thus we explain Our Sign for People with understanding
33 say: my Lord has forbidden shameful deeds, committed openly or secretly. Sin’s against Truth or reason, joining Partners to Allah for which He has given no authority, and talking about Allah things you don’t know
34 and for every Nation We’ve appointed a term: and when it comes none can delay or advance it
35 O Children of Adam! if a Messenger comes from amongst you reciting My Revelations than whoever shuns evil and mend their ways shall have no worry or grief
36 but those who reject and scorn Our Signs they are companions of Fire and shall live in it
37 who is more wrong than him who lies against Allah or reject His Verses? they will receive their share from the Book until Our Messenger of Death arrives. and ask them “where are they whom you called besides Allah?” they will reply “they have left us” thus testifying against themselves that they were Disbelievers
38 He will say “enter Nation’s of Humans and Jinn’s into the Fire along with those earlier ones” each group cursing and blaming the previous ones saying “Lord they have misled us give them double punishment in the Fire” He’ll reply “double for all! don’t you get it”
39 than the first one will say to the last “see! you were no better off than us. so taste what you’ve earned!”
Section   5
40 for the scorners and Rejecters of our Sign’s. the Gates of Heavens will not be opened nor can they enter the Garden until, the Camel goes through the needles Eye. Our punishment for Sinners
41 for them is a bed with layers of coverings of Hell, Our revenge for the unjust
42 as for Righteous Believers We do not burden them more than they can bear. their home is in the Gardens forever
43 We shall remove all grief from their Hearts, and with flowing Rivers beneath them: they will say “praise to Allah who guided us otherwise we would’ve been wrong, His Messenger did explain the Truth”. and they’ll hear a shout “behold! the Gardens you inherited for your deeds”
44 the Gardens Residents will call out to the Residents of the Fire “we’ve got what the Lord promised did you?”  they will say “yes” and the crier between them will yell “Allah’s curse on evil”
45 “those who hinder in Allah’s path, making it crooked they are Disbeliever in the Hereafter”
46 between them shall be a veil and on the Heights will be Men who know them all by their marks. they will call out to the Residents of the Garden “Peace be on you” for they hope to enter but still haven’t
47 but when they see the Residents of the Fire they will say “Lord do not place us with the Sinners”
Section   6
48 People on the Heights will call to certain People whom they identify from their marks saying “what did you gain from your hoardings and arrogance?”
49 “aren’t these the People you swore that Allah will not show Mercy on them? enter the Garden without fear or grief”
50 the Residents of Fire will say to the Resident of the Gardens “pour us some Water or provision Allah has given you” they’ll reply “Allah has forbidden to the Disbelievers”
51 “those who took their Religion as fun and joke and were charmed by Life of this World” that Day We shall forget them as they forgot Our meeting of this Day because they used to reject Our Sign’s
52 We definitely gave them a Guidance Book based on knowledge, explained in detail giving Guidance and Mercy to all Believers
53 do they wait for the outcome? on that Day those who ignored earlier will say “the Messenger did bring us the Truth, can anyone intervene on our behalf or we be sent back so that we behave differently than before?” in fact they have lost their Souls and their plans failed
  Section   7
54 your Lord is Allah who created the Heavens and Earth in (6) Six Days than He mounted the Throne. He makes Night cover the Day following each other in rotation. the Sun, Moon and Stars all are created and Commanded by Him. for He is the Lord of the Worlds!
55 call you Lord modestly in private, for He does not like aggressors
56 and do not create trouble on Earth after it’s organised. call Him in fear and hope, for He is close to the good
57 it’s He who sends Winds as good news of His Mercy of the oncoming Rain Cloud’s, and when they carry the heavy clouds, We drive them to a Dead Land pouring Rain and producing all kinds of Fruits. thus We revive the Dead: if you remember
58 from the good Land the vegetation comes forth by its Lords will, but only worthless comes from the bad Land. thus We explain Our Sign to the thankful
  Section   8
59 We sent Noah to his People he said “my People worship Allah you have none other but Him. i fear for you the punishment of a horrific Day!”
60 but leaders of his peoples said “we see you are plainly mistaken”
61 he said “my People!  i am not mistaken rather i am the Messenger sent from the Lord of the Worlds!”
62 “i am conveying Sincerely the Message of my Lord to you. i know this from Allah you don’t”
63 “don’t you wonder that a Messenger from Allah has come from amongst you to warn you that gladly you may find Mercy”
64 but they rejected him so We saved him along with those in the Ark, and drowned the ones who rejected Our Sign’s: these were blind folks!
  Section   9
65 and to Aad, sent their brother Hud, he said “O my People worship Allah there is no God but Him so won’t you fear?”
66 the leader of Disbelievers among his People said “we feel you are foolish and a liar”
67 “O my People i am not foolish but a Messenger from the Lord of the Worlds”
68 “i am conveying my Lords Message and am your trustworthy adviser”
69 “don’t you wonder that a Messenger from amongst you has come to warn you, you are successors of People of Noah and command respect. remember Allah’s favor’s so that you may prosper”
70 they said “you ask us to worship Allah and give-up what our fathers worshiped? than show us what you threaten us with if you are truthful”
71 he said “you have already received Allah’s punishment and wrath, still you dispute over names that you and your fathers gave without Allah’s authority. than wait, for i am waiting too”
72 We saved him along with his People by Our Mercy and destroyed the base of those who rejected Our Sign’s
  Section   10
73 to Thamud people We sent their brother Salih, he said “my people you have no God except Allah so worship Him. a Sign from your Lord is this she-Camel let her graze on Earth, don’t hurt her otherwise you will be severely punished”
74 “and remember He made you successors of Aad People and settled you on Earth. you made palaces in the plains and carved out homes in the Mountains. so remember His gifts and stop mischief on Earth”
75 their scornful Chiefs said to the weak and powerless Believers “do you know that Salih is Messenger from his Lord” they said “yes! and we believe the Revelations sent through him”
76 then the arrogant Group replied “and we reject what you believe”
77 and they killed the she Camel against the Lords Command and said “Salih bring what you threaten us with if you are the Messenger”
78 and an Earthquake seized them, in the Morning they were found flat in their homes
79 Salih left them saying “my People i did convey the Lords Message but you didn’t care for good advice”
80 and Lut! who said to his People “you commit Sin like no Man in the World ever did”
81 you lust after Men instead of Woman, you have sinned beyond bounds
82 his peoples said “turn them out of the City these are Men who want to be pure”
83 and We saved him and his family except his Wife who stayed behind
84 and We rained a rain (Brimstone) on them. see the ending of the Sinners
  Section   11
85 to the Madyan (sent) their brother Shu’aib who said “O my People! worship Allah none except Him, you have received His clear Sign’s, give full measures and Weights, do not cheat withholding peoples things nor do mischief on Earth after it’s set in order. that’s better for you if you believe”
86 “and do not lurk on Allah’s paths in hope to make it crooked and turn away Believers. remember when you were few, how He multiplied you. and see the wrongdoers end”
87 “and if there are some who believe and some who reject the Message of Allah with which i have been sent, have patience until Allah, the best Judge decides between us”

THE HEIGHTS (AL-AR’AF)  

  •             Revealed at :  Mecca
  •             Sura :  7
  •             Part : 8  /  (9)
  •             Total Verses :  206
88 Chief of his arrogant People said “ Shu’aib we shall drive you out of our Town with your Believers, or else come back to our Religion. he said “what, even if we hate it?”
89 we would be lying against Allah, if we return to your Religion, from which He rescued us. unless Allah wills, we shall never return to it Allah knows and we trust Him.  “our Lord decide between us and our People, for You are the best Judge”
90 leaders of his disbelieving people said “if you follow Shu’aib surely you will be ruined!”
91 but the Earthquake seized them and before Morning they lay flat in their homes
92 those who denied Shu’aib became as if they had never lived there, those who rejected him were losers!
93 Shu’aib left saying “my People i did convey the Lords Message and gave you good advice. than how can i grieve over the Disbelievers”
Section   12
94 We do not send Prophet to a Town until We afflict the People with trouble and hardship so that they may grow humble
95 than We change their misery to wealth and they begin to say “our fathers suffered than became wealthy” but then suddenly We take them by surprise
96 if People of the Town believed and shunned evil surely We would’ve given them blessings from the Sky and on Earth but Since they rejected We held them on account
97 did People of the Town felt secure from Our wrath coming over them by Night?
98 or did they feel secure of Our wrath coming while playing in broad Daylight?
99 or do they at all feel secure from Allah’s plan?  none can, except the doomed!
  Section   13
100 isn’t it clear to the Earth‘s inheritors, that if We wanted, We can punish and seal their Hearts to prevent them from listening
101 such were stories of the Towns We told you. Messengers were sent with clear proof but People wouldn’t believe as they had rejected before. thus Allah seals the Heart’s of the Disbelievers
102 mostly We found their promise untrue and them rebellious
103 after them We sent Moses to Pharaoh and his Chiefs, but they too rejected. than see the end of the wrongdoers!
104 Moses said “Pharaoh i am a Messenger from Lord of the Worlds”
105 “i can say nothing, except the Truth concerning Allah, now i come to you from your Lord, let the Children of Israel leave with me”
106 he replied “if truly you’ve come with clear proofs than show us”
107 than (Moses) threw his Rod and it turned into a Snake
108 and drew out his Hand and everyone saw it White!
  Section   14
109 Pharaoh’s chiefs said “he is a well-versed Magician”
110 “his plan is to throw you from your Land, then what?”
111 they said “keep him and his brother in suspense and send your Men to the Cities”
112 “to bring every known Magician to you”
113 and the Magicians said to Pharaoh “surely we will be rewarded if we win”
114 he replied “yes and you will be closest to me”
115 they said “Moses will you cast first or shall we?”
116 Moses said “you cast” and when they cast the People became enchanted upon seeing their Magic
117 We inspired Moses “throw your rod” and behold! it ate up all their demonstrations
118 thus Truth was confirmed and all their doings were useless
119 they returned defeated and disgraced
120 the Magicians fell down prostrate
121 saying “we believe in Lord of the Worlds!”
122 “Lord of Moses and Aaron”
123 Pharaoh said “you believe in him without my permission? you’ve devised this plan to drive People out of this City. soon you will know”
124 “i will cut off your Hands and feet on the opposite sides and crucify you”
125 they said “then we return to Our Lord!”
126 you want to take revenge on us because we believed the Lords Sign that we received. “O Lord give us patience and let us die as Muslims”
Section   15
127 Pharaoh’s chiefs said “will you leave Moses and his People to do evil in the Land and forget you and your God” he said “kill their Sons but let their Women live, we have power over them”
128 Moses said to his People “Pray patiently for Allah’s help. this Earth belongs to Allah. He gives to whoever he wants. the end is for the good”
129 they said “we’ve had troubles before and after you came” he said “maybe Allah will destroy your enemy and make you rulers of the land and is checking your deeds”
  Section   16
130 and We punished Pharaoh and his People with Years of famine as a warning
131 but in good times they said “this is because of our doings” and when in trouble say “this is due to ill omen of Moses and his People” know that their evil omens are only from Allah but most don’t realise!
132 they said “whatever Magic tricks you show us we shall not believe it”
133 so We sent on them floods, locust, pests, frogs and blood the Sign’s that didn’t need explaining, but People were deep in Sin
134 when in trouble they said “Moses appeal to your Lord His promise to you and save us. if this disaster is removed we shall believe and let you and the Children of Israel go”
135 but every time We removed their punishment to a fixed Term which they had to reach, they broke their promise
136 so We took revenge and drowned them into the Sea because they rejected nor heeded Our warnings
137 We made the People who were considered weak inheritors of the East and West part of Land and blessed it. and your Lord completed His promise to the tolerant Children of Israel. We destroyed all the fine buildings and works of Pharaoh and his People
138 and took the Children of Israel across the Sea, where they met some idol worshipers who said “Moses make an idol for us like their idol” he replied “you people are ignorant”
139 “and will be destroyed because of your vain doings”
140 he said “should i look for God other than Allah when it’s Allah who has given you superior gifts?”
141 and saved you from Pharaoh’s People who gave horrible punishment killing your Sons and sparing your Women. that was a trial from your Lord
  Section   17 
142 We fixed for Moses (30) Thirty nights plus (10) Ten thus completing the (40) Forty nights period with his Lord. Moses said to his brother Aaron “be in charge of my people and avoid Sin”
143 when Moses reached the decided place and the Lord spoke to Moses, Moses said “My Lord, show yourself to me” Allah said “you cannot really see me but look at the Mountain closely if you can see it standing than you will see Me” and when the Lord revealed His Magnificence, the Mountain came crashing down and Moses fainted, when he woke up he said “glory my Lord to You!  i repent and i am the first of Believers”
144 He said “Moses I have chosen you above People with my Message and My spoken words, so accept what I gave you with thanks”
145 We inscribed Law’s on Tablets for him Commanding and explaining all matters. (saying) “hold these firmly and direct your people to follow better ways, soon I will show you the home of evildoers”
146 and those behaving arrogantly on Earth. I will turn them away from My Revelations. even if they see it they will not believe or adopt the right way, but will adopt wrong ways. because they rejected and ignored Our Revelations
147 those that disbelieve Our Sign and meeting of the Hereafter, futile are their efforts, do they deserve reward for their past deeds?
Section   18
148 Moses folk’s, in his absence, created a low sounding calf from the ornaments. don’t they see it could neither speak nor guide them? they worshiped it, and thus became wrongdoers
149 and when they regretted and realized their mistake they said “if our Lord won’t forgive us, than we are lost “
150 when Moses returned to his people, angry and sad he said “you committed evil in my absence, do you want your Lords early Judgment?” then he put down the Tablets and seized his brothers hair pulling him towards him and said “my Mother’s Son my people think i am weak and nearly killed me!” don’t make my enemies rejoice at my fall, and don’t put me among the evildoers
151 Moses prayed “O my Lord forgive my brother and me and have Mercy on us for you are most Merciful”
  Section   19
152 those who worshiped the Calf will have the wrath from their Lord and shame in this World, thus We revenge the inventor of lies
153 but the wrongdoers who repent and believe. Lo! their Lord is oft-Forgiving most Merciful
154 when Moses anger calmed down he picked up the Tablets and in the writing was Guidance and Mercy for those who fear
155 Moses chose (70) Seventy Men for Our meeting place and when violent trembling came upon them he said “Lord if you wanted you could’ve destroyed us already, for the doing’s of our ignorant. this is a test from You, for it’s on You to put astray or guide anyone. You are our Savior and best at Forgiving so forgive us and give us Mercy”
156 and choose for us good in this World and in the Hereafter for we have turned to you. He said “I will punish whom I will, yet My Mercy is for all, and declare it for those who do good, give Charity and believe Our Revelations”
157 those who follow the unlettered Prophet already mentioned in Torah and the Gospel, for he teaches them the difference of right and wrong, allows them good and forbids bad. and remove their heavy load and restraints. so those who believe him, honor and follow the light sent down to him such will prosper
  Section   20
158 say “O People! i am Messenger of Allah to who belongs all in the Heavens and Earth there is no God except Him, He gives Life and Death. believe in Allah and his unlettered Messenger, who is Allah’s Believer, and follow him on the right path”
159 there was a Group of Moses People who were true and did justice
160 We divided them into Twelve (12) Tribes, and when his People asked Moses for Water We inspired in him “strike the Rock with your Rod” and out gushed Twelve (12) Springs. each Tribe knew their Spring. and We gave them shade from the Cloud and Manna and Quails (saying) “eat the good things We’ve given you. for they couldn’t harm Us but they harmed their own Souls”
161 they were told “live in this Town and eat whatever you wish but speak humbly even when you enter its Gates: We shall forgive your Sins and reward the good”
162 but the evil ones changed the words that We gave, so We sent a wrath from Heaven for their wrongdoings
Section   21
163 ask them of the Town by the Sea who broke their Sabbath. how the big fish came to them openly on their day of Sabbath. but the Day they broke the Sabbath Fish did not come to them. this was a trial for the wrongdoers
164 when a group asked “why do you preach those who you know Allah will destroy soon?” the preachers replied “to do my duty towards my Lord, that perhaps they may fear Him”
165 when they ignored the warning. We rescued those who shunned evil and gave severe punishment to the Sinners
166 so when they were committing evil and boasting. We said “be ye ‘Apes’ hated and rejected”
167 and your Lord declared that He will send against them those who will give them cruel punishment. for your Lord is quick to retaliate but oft-Forgiving and Merciful
168 We divided them in groups on Earth. some were good some quite the opposite We tried them with prosperity and poverty in case they might return
169 after them generation came inheriting the Book and they choose vain pride, saying “we will be forgiven” but if they get another chance they will repeat. didn’t they promise to study the Book and speak only the Truth regarding Allah? the Hereafter is better for those who avoid (evil). don’t you understand?
170 as for those who follow the Book and Pray regularly, never shall We let the reward of the good go to waste
171 when We shook the Mountain and when they felt it may fall over them (We said) “hold fast what We’ve given you, maybe you may fight off (evil)”
  Section   22
172 when you’re Lord brought forward from the loins of the Children of Adam’s their offspring and made them testify against themselves (saying) “am I not your Lord?” they said “yes” (this) in case you should say on Judgment Day “we were unaware”
173 or you may say “because of the deeds of our Idolater Fathers, will You than destroy us on account of what those people did?”
174 thus We explain in details Our Revelations that perhaps you may revert
175 tell them the story of him who upon receiving Our Sign disregarded it, and so Satan seized him and lead him astray
176 if We wanted we could’ve elevated him but he chose the Earth and lust. he is like a Dog whether attacked or unharmed he will always loll out his tongue just like those who Reject Our Sign. tell them the stories so that they think
177 evil as an example are people who reject Our Sign’s doing wrong to their own Soul
178 whoever Allah guides is on right path and whomever He rejects are losers
179 already many Jinn and Humans We’ve made for Hell. for their Hearts do not understand, their eyes do not see and ears do not hear. they are like Cattle even worse! and heedless
180 the most beautiful Names are Allah’s call Him by them. and avoid company of those who do Blasphemy to His name for they will soon be punished
181 among those We’ve created, are people who guide with truth and instruct justice
  Section   23
182 those who Reject Our Sign’s. We will punish them unexpectedly
183 although a breather I will grant them, for My plans are strong
184 don’t they think? their companion is not mad but a wise Warner
185 don’t they at all consider Allah’s authority governing Heavens and Earth and all His created things, and that their end may well be near. what else will they believe in after this?
186 whoever Allah rejects are alone and astray
187 they ask you about the Hour when will it come? say “only Allah knows and will show it at the right time” heavy is its burden upon the Heavens and Earth and it will come suddenly. they ask you as if you know, say “Allah only knows but most Mankind knows not”
188 say “i do not gain or lose except what Allah wills. if i knew the unseen than i would’ve amassed enough good so no evil could touch me but i am only a Warner and bringer of good news to the Believers”
  Section   24 
189 He it is who created you from a Single Being and made out of the same his Mate, so that he finds comfort in her. when they unite she carries a Light burden which slowly becomes heavy and they both Pray to Allah “if You give us a healthy child we shall be grateful”
190 but after they receive a healthy child they join partners to Him in what He had given them. but Allah is high above what they join Him with
191 joining Him with things who cannot create anything but are themselves created!
192 neither can they give help, nor help themselves!
193 if you call them to Guidance they will not listen. it is same whether you call or remain silent
194 those whom you call besides Allah are subjects like yourself. call them and see if they answer, if you are truthful
195 do they have feet to walk, Hands to hold, Eyes to see, or Ears to hear? say “call your Partners and scheme your worst, and give me no breather”
196 “for Allah is my protector, He revealed the Book and protects the Righteous”
197 “but those you call besides Him cannot help you nor help themselves”
198 if you invite them to Guidance they don’t hear, you can see them looking at you but they don’t see
199 hold to forgiveness, direct what’s right and stay away from the ignorant
200 and if Satan troubles you take shelter in Allah. He hears and knows
201 those who guard when evil thoughts cross their minds they remember Allah and they can then see
202 but their brothers (the Satan’s) plunge them into the wrong constantly
203 when you don’t bring a Revelation they say “why haven’t you chosen one?” say “i only follow what the Lord revels to me, these are His insight, Guidance and Mercy for the Believers”
204 listen quietly and attentively when the Quran is recited so that you may receive Mercy
205 remember your Lord with humbleness and respect, in a mild voice Morning and Evening without neglect
206 those near to their Lord do not turn away to Serve, Praise and Bow down before Him

Sura 6 The Cattle (Al-An’am)

THE CATTLE (AL-AN’AM)

  • Revealed at:  Mecca 
  • Sura:  6
  • Part:  (7) / 8
  • Total Verses:  165
   In The Name Of Allah, The Most Beneficent And Merciful
   Section   1
1 praise is for Allah who created the Heavens and Earth, and made Darkness and Light. still those who disbelieve join Partners with their Lord
2 He it is who created you from Clay and fixed for you a Term, and another Term with Him. still you doubt!
3 He is Allah, in the Heavens and Earth, He knows what you hide or reveal and knows what you’ve earned
4 never a Sign from their Lord reaches them and they turn away
5 and reject the Truth upon receiving it. soon they’ll know what they mocked
6 don’t they see how many generations We’ve destroyed before them? whom We had established on Earth more in strength than what We gave you. and poured on them abundant Rain, with flowing rivers beneath them: but for their sins We destroyed them and created another generation
7 even if We had sent a Book on Paper that they could touch with their hands the Disbelievers would’ve said “it’s obvious Magic!”
8 they say “why isn’t an Angel sent down to him?” but if We had sent an Angle than the matter would be closed with no respite to give
9 if We had sent an Angel than surly he would be a Man causing confusion to already confused people
10 laughed at were Messengers before you but those who laughed, were themselves ridiculed
  Section   2
11 say “travel the Earth and see the outcome of the Rejecters!”
12 say “to whom belongs what’s in Heavens and Earth?” say “to Allah! He has planned for Himself to give Mercy, and will gather together all on Judgment Day. it’s the Disbelievers who have wronged their own Soul’s”
13 “to Him belongs all that inhabits the Night and Day. for He Hears and Knows”
14 say “should i take someone other than Allah as my protector He who is the Creator of Heavens and Earth? He it is who feeds but is never fed?”say “nay! i am commanded to be the first to bow down in ‘Islam’, and be not with the Idolaters”
15 say “if i refuse my Lord, i fear the Doom of a terrible Day”
16 it’s Mercy of Allah if Doom is averted on that Day from anyone and that’s clear success”
17 if Allah touches you with problems non can help except Him and if He touches you with happiness, He is all-Powerful
18 He is pleasing to His Worshipers, He is all-Wise and Aware
19 say “what has most weight in evidence?” say “Allah is witness between me and you, this Qur’an has been inspired in me to warn you and whoever it reaches. can you verify that besides Allah there is another God?” say “no! i cannot for He is only One Allah and i am clear off whatever you join Him with”
20 those who We’ve given the Book understand it as they understand their Sons. those who’ve lost their Souls won’t believe
Section   3
21 who does greater wrong than one who lies regarding Allah or rejects His Signs. indeed the wrongdoers won’t succeed
22 one day We shall gather them and say to those who ascribe Partners to Allah “where are your imagined Partners?”
23 then they won’t have any excuse but to say “by Allah, our Lord we were not Idolaters”
24 see how they lie against their own Souls! and their invented lie how it fails them
25 of them some who listen to you. but We’ve put veil over their Hearts so that they don’t understand and made their ears deaf, even if they see Our Sign they won’t believe. still they come to argue they say  “these are nothing but Tales of old”
26 they forbid others and themselves to avoid it, and they  ruin none except  themselves naively
27 if you could see when confronted with Fire they’ll say “if only we were sent back we’ll not reject the Lords Revelations and be with the Believers!”
28 yes! what they hid before is visible now. and if they were returned they would again repeat the forbidden, for they are liars
29 they say “there is nothing except this Life on Earth and we won’t be raised again”
30 if you could see when they confront their Lord He will say “isn’t this the Truth? they’ll reply “yes by our Lord!” than He’ll say” “than taste the Doom for rejecting”
  Section   4
31 losers are they who deny their meeting with Allah until, when the Hour comes and they say “alas we didn’t think!”  and on their backs they carry evil burden
32 what’s Life of this World except fun and amusement but home of the Hereafter is far better, won’t you than understand
33 We know their talks upset you: it isn’t you they deny, but it’s Allah Signs the evildoers deny
34 rejected were other Messengers before you, but patiently they bear until Our help arrived. Allah’s word is final. and you already know regarding some of the Messengers
35 if their aversion upsets you, still if you dig the Earth or climb the Sky to bring proof it’s useless. if Allah so willed He would’ve guided them. so don’t be among the foolish
36 those who listen will accept. as for the Dead, Allah will raise them up and then to Him they’ll return
37 they say “why no Sign has come to him from his Lord” say “Allah can send any Sign” but most don’t understand
38 there is no Animal on Earth or flying Creatures with Two (2) wings but are communities like you, that isn’t mentioned in the Book. eventually all will be gathered to their Lord
39 those who reject Our Revelations are deaf, dumb and in darkness. it’s Allah’s will who He sends astray or puts on straight path
40 say “think if Allah’s wrath or the final Hour comes upon you can you really call anyone other than Allah? if you are truthful”
41 “nay! it’s to Him you will call and He removes it. but you forget that you had joined Him with others!”
  Section   5
42 before you We had sent to many a Nations and gave hardship to the Nation. so that they humble themselves
43 when Our punishment strikes, if only they’d been humble? rather their hearts became hard and Satan made them feel their doings was justified!
44 and as they forgot the warning. We opened all doors for them, than in the midst of their enjoyments We seized them by surprise plunging them in despair
45 that ended the last of evil people. praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds
46 say “think if Allah takes away your hearing, sight and seals your Heart than which God can restore it except Allah” see how We explain Our Sign? still they turn away
47 say “think if punishments comes to you suddenly or plainly? would anyone be destroyed other then wrongdoers?”
48 Messengers are sent only to give good news or warning. so good Believers should not fear or grieve
49 but those rejecting Our Sign shall suffer for persisting
50 say “i do not have treasures of Allah nor i know of any secrets nor am i an Angel but i follow the Revelations” say “is the blind equal to a seer?”  think?
  Section   6
51 warn those who fear that they will be brought before their Lord, where none can protect or plead for them, other than Him. therefore be on guard
52 do not send away those who call on their Lord, Morning and Evening seeking His favor. you are not responsible for them nor they for you that you should stop them and join wrongdoer
53 We tried some against others. but they said “are these who Allah chose from among us?”  doesn’t Allah know the grateful!
54 when those who believe in Our Revelations come to you: say “Peace! your Lord has prescribed Mercy for Himself. if any does evil and then repent doing good. Lo! Allah is oft-Forgiving”
55 that’s how We show our Sign, to make sinners visible
  Section   7
56 say “i am forbidden to worship those whom you call other than Allah” say “your desires i cannot follow, otherwise i will go astray and be among the misguided”
57 say “i am on a clear Sign from my Lord but you reject Him. i haven’t got what you’re impatient for, that command lies with Allah He tells the Truth and is the best Judge”
58 say “what you want if it was in my power, the problem would be solved. but Allah knows the wrongdoers”
59 He has the Keys of the unseen none but He knows, whatever is in the Land or Seas. not a leaf falls or a grain in the depths of Earth or anything fresh or dry. but is in a clear Record
60 its He who takes your Soul by Night and knows what you did during the Day. he then raises you up again so that you complete your Term. you finally return to Him and then He will show you your doings
Section   8
61  He is all-Powerful over his worshipers and has set guardians over you. when nearing Death Our Angels take your Soul without fail
62 and is returned to Allah, their Lord: the true, in command and the swiftest to Judge
63 say “who saves you from the darkness of Land and Sea when you call Him discreetly in fear (saying) “if He saves us, we’ll truly be thankful’?”
64 say “it’s Allah who saves you from this and all distress, still you worship others besides Allah “
65 say “He can punish you from above and below, or confuse you with cruelty of one another” see how We explain our Sign’s for your understanding
66 but your people reject the Truth. say “i am not responsible for you”
67 “every Message has a time limit. you shall soon know”
68 stay away from Men involved in vain discussion unless they stop. and if you forget because of Satan, than upon remembering, avoid evil company
69 Believers who do good and fear Allah are not responsible for their deeds but they can remind them to fear
70 forget them who take Religion as a joke and are impressed by Life in this World. but announce; a Soul may ruin itself by its deeds. none can help it except Allah and no ransom will be accepted. those are they who perish by their own doings. they will drink boiling Water and given severe punishment for disbelieving
  Section   9
71 say “shall we call others besides Allah who can neither benefit or harm us and turn back after receiving Allah’s Guidance?  like those whom Satan made fools of (saying) “come to us!”  say “nay Allah’s Guidance is the Guidance, and we’ve been commanded to surrender to the Lord of the Worlds”
72 “and to offer Prayer and fear Allah for you return to Him”
73 its He who created Heavens and Earth in Truth. and only needs to say “be!” and His word is Truth. He controls the Day when the Trumpet will be blown. know-er of Seen and Unseen, all-Wise and Aware
74 when Abraham said to his father Azar “, taking Idols as God? how wrong you and your people are!”
75 and We showed Abraham the Kingdom of Heavens and Earth so that he was sure
76 when the Night covered him he saw a Star and said “this is my Lord, but when it set” he said “i don’t like setting things”
77 when he saw the rising majestic Moon he said “this is my Lord” but when it set, he said “unless my Lord doesn’t guide me i will be in the wrong”
78 when he saw the Sun’s rising glory he said “this is my Lord” but when it set he said “my people i am not guilty of joining partners to Allah”
79 “i have turned my Face towards the one who created Heavens and Earth and never shall i join partners to Allah”
80 his people disputed with him he said “you are disputing regarding Allah who has guided me? i do not fear things you join Allah with, unless it’s His will, He understands all things. won’t you than be warned?
81 how should i fear things you associate Allah with, when you are not afraid to join partners to Allah, without any authority given to you? which of the two (2) party has more right to security than?
82 “those Believers who do not confuse their beliefs with wrongdoings, they are rightly guided”
  Section   10     
83 that was Our proof We gave Abraham against his people. We elevate whom We will in degrees. for your Lord is Wise, Aware
84 We gave him Isaac and Jacob and guided them. and before them We guided Noah and among his descendants David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses and Aaron hence We reward the good
85 and Zachariah, John, Jesus and Elias all in rank of the Righteous
86 and Ishmael, Elisha, Jonas and Lot: We favored them above the Worlds
87 some of their fathers their Children and brethren We chose and guided them on straight path
88 this is Allah’s Guidance He gives to whom He wills his Worshipers. but if they join others with Him all your deeds are lost
89 these are the Men to whom We gave the Book, the Authority and Prophet-hood but if they reject We shall give it to people who won’t reject
90 they have received Allah’s Guidance so follow their Guidance and say “i don’t ask for reward, for it’s no less than a reminder to the Worlds”
  Section 11
91 no justification of Allah do they make when they say “Allah did not send down anything” say “who then sent a Light and Guidance Book with Moses which you made in sheets hiding most and disclosing some. you learn t things that neither you nor your father knew” say “it’s Allah” and leave them in their useless talks
92 this is the blessed Book We’ve revealed, confirming that which We sent before. so that you may warn the Mother of Cities and all around her, those who believe in Hereafter and are constant in Prayer
93 who can be more evil than the one who invents lies regarding Allah or says “i have received inspiration” when he has not or “i can reveal like what Allah revealed” if you could but see on their Death when the Angels stretch their hands and say “give up your Souls! now you will receive punishment for lying and scorning at Signs of Allah”
94 “so you’ve come to Us alone bare like when We first created you, and without thing’s that We gave you. neither your partners is with you. so now they’ve broken all ties and abandoned you!”
  Section   12
95 its Allah who makes the Grains or seed stone to sprout out, the way He brings forth the living from the Dead and Dead from the living. that’s Allah than how you turn away?
96 separator of the Day, from stillness of the Night. and Sun and Moon for calculation, such is the Judgment of the Powerful all-Knowing
97 it is He who has made the Stars to guide you through the darkness of the Land and seas. We’ve explained our Revelations for people who know
98 it is He who has created you from One (1) person, and given you resting place and place to depart from. We have explained Our Revelation for people who understand
99 it is He who sends down Water from the Sky and produce all kinds of vegetation’s. from it emerges green stalk bearing clusters of grains. and from the sprout of the Date palm clusters of Dates hanging low and near, Gardens of Grapes, Olives and Pomegranates, with similar yet different to look at. see the Fruits and their ripeness. these are Sign for the Believers
100 still they make Jinn equal to Allah. He, who has created them! and without knowledge assign to Him Son’s and Daughter’s. praise Him who is high above all this
  Section   13
101 He is the designer of Heaven and Earth, how can He have child when He has no Wife? He created and knows all
102 such is Allah your Lord! the all Creator, so worship him. He has the power to arrange all affairs
103 no vision can reach him, but He sees all. He is above understanding, yet familiar with everything
104 “the proof is there from your Lord, whoever can see will benefit but whoever blinds himself will only harm own self. i am not here to check on you”
105 that’s how We explain in various ways the Verses, so that they may say “you’ve studied” and that We make it clear for the educated
106 follow what you are taught by inspiration. there is no God except Him, and turn away from the Idolaters
107 had Allah willed there would be no Idolaters, nether are you their Guardian nor responsible for them
108 do not insult what they worship in case they insult Allah through ignorance. thus it seems fair to both. and when they return to their Lord He will then inform them of their doings
109 they swear strongly by Allah, that if a Sign came they will believe. say “Sign’s are in Allah’s power. and even if it came, they’ll not believe?”
110 We shall make their Hearts and eyes turn away because they first disbelieved, and We shall leave them to wander blindly
 

THE CATTLE (AL-AN’AM)

  • Revealed at:  Mecca 
  • Sura:  6
  • Part:  7 / ( 8)
  • Total Verses:  165

 

Section   14
111 even if We send Angels to them or if the Dead spoke to them or We collect everything before their eyes, still they will not believe unless Allah wills, yet most ignore it
112 similarly for every Messenger We’ve created an enemy of Men and Jinn’s inspiring one another with fancy speech to deceive, if you’re Lord wanted they would not have done this. so leave them in their design
113 let the Hearts of those, who disbelieve in the Hereafter be happy and let them receive what they may
114 say “shall i find a Judge other than Allah when it is Him who sent you the Book with explanation” they know well the Books that are sent from their Lord. so don’t doubt
115 faultless is your Lords words in truth and justice. none can change it: for He hears and knows all
116 if you were to obey most on Earth they will mislead you from Allah. for they only guess and lie
117 your Lord knows, who drift away from Him and who receives Guidance
118 So eat from, on which Allah’s name has been read, if you believe in his Sign
119 why shouldn’t you eat on which Allah’s name is read, when he has explained to you what is forbidden except under emergency? but many misled others for their own urges and lack of knowledge. Your Lord knows the violators
120 avoid all Sin visible or hidden. sinners will get “due” payment
121 it’s a Sin to eat on which Allah name has not been read. the evil ones do inspire their friends to challenge you. for you will be an Idolater if you obey them
  Section   15
122 the Dead to whom We gave Life and knowledge so that he can walk in the society is the same as the one who lives forever in darkness? hence to the Faithless their own doings seems pleasing
123 And so in every Town We’ve placed evil Men as leaders who plot but only harm their own Soul and cannot see
124 when they get a Sign they say “we want the same Sign that Allah’s Messenger got” Allah knows best whom to give Message. soon Allah will disgrace the evil plotters with severe punishment
125 whoever Allah wishes to guide He opens their breast to Islam. the Disbelievers He does not guide and as result closes their breast as if you are climbing up the Sky
126 this is a straight road of your Lord. explained in details for the intelligent
127 their home will be of Peace in the Lords presence who will be their guardian because of what they did
128 one Day He will gather them together “you crowd of Jinn, you have misled Mankind ” their supporters among Men will say “our Lord we’ve gained from each other but now we’ve reached our Term that You’ve fixed” He will say “Fire is your home so live there forever except as Allah pleases” your Lord is all Wise and knowing
129 that’s how we make the wrongdoers support each other for on account of what they’ve earned
  Section   16
130 “crowd of Jinn and Mankind! didn’t Messengers came to you reciting My Verses and warning you of your this Day meeting?” they will reply “yes we agree” and it’s Life of this World that deceived them. thus proving that they rejected Faith
131 therefore your Lord will not destroy Township for its Sin without warning its people
132 Degrees are set for all according to their deeds. your Lord is not Unaware
133 your Lord is self-sufficient full of Mercy, if He willed He could destroy you and put another in your place. the way He raised you from offspring of others
134 whatever you’re promised will occur: you cannot escape it
135 say “O! my people do whatever you can so shall i, you will soon know who has a happy abode. for wrongdoers won’t succeed”
136 they assign to Allah what He has created of the crops and Cattle saying “this is for Allah and this” for our “Partners!” but the share they assign to their partners don’t reach Allah and what they assign to Allah reaches their “Partners”! evil is their Judgment
137 in the eyes of the Disbelievers their Partners made it seem appealing, killing their Children and so leading them to destruction and confusion in the Religion. if Allah willed they wouldn’t have done, so leave them to their devices
138 they say certain Cattle and crops are forbidden to eat except what we please and there are Cattle forbidden to carry burden, or Cattle with Allah’s name not mentioned; lying against Allah. soon He will avenge their lies
139 they say “whatever is in the Cattle’s womb is reserved for our Men and prohibited to our Woman but if still born than all can share” He will punish them for their sayings. He the Wise and aware
140 losers are those who kill their Children foolishly, forbidding food that Allah has provided for them, lying against Allah. indeed they are astray without heeding Guidance
  Section   17
141 He it is who created Gardens with or without trellis, with Date Palms and crops of varying taste, Olives and Pomegranate similar yet different. eat the seasons Fruit’s but pay the due on Harvest Day. and don’t waste as Allah dislikes wasters
142 of Cattle, some are for carrying load and some for food. eat what Allah has provided, and don’t follow the Devil’s footsteps who’s your arch enemy
143 eight pairs: a pair of Sheep and a pair of Goat; say has He forbidden the two Males or two Females or what the two Females womb contains? speak if you truly know
144 a pair of Camel and an Oxen pair; say has He forbidden the two Males or two Females or what the two Females womb contains? were you present when Allah had instructed this? who is more wrong than one who invents lie against Allah misleading ignorant people? for Allah dose not guide wrongdoers
  Section   18            
145 say “i haven’t found anything revealed to me, forbidding anything to be eaten, unless it be Dead meat, bleeding or flesh of Swine for that is unclean and foul. and on which, name other than Allah’s been mentioned unless driven by grave necessity not craving” Lo! your Lord is oft-Forgiving, Merciful
146 to the Jew We Forbade them ones with undivided hoofs and fat of ox and Sheep except which was on their backs, insides or bones. this punishment was for their disobedience. for We are truthful
147 if they deny you, say “your Lord is all-Embracing, Merciful but His wrath will never be withdrawn from the guilty”
148 the Idolater’s say “had Allah willed we or our fathers wouldn’t have joined Partners to Him nor had been forbidden anything” like those before them rejected until they tasted our wrath, say “ if have you any facts than produce it? you only guess and lie”
149 say “the final word is with Allah, if he wanted He would’ve guided you all”
150 say “bring your witness and prove that Allah forbade such and such. if they do don’t be part of it, don’t follow the fancies of those who reject Our Revelations and disbelieve the Hereafter: holding others equal to their Lord
  Section   19
151 say: “i will recite what Allah has forbidden you” join not Partners to Him, be kind to Parents, do not kill Children on plea of poverty because We provide for you both. do not commit Sin whether secret or open, don’t kill except for Justice. this is His command for you to understand
152 do not approach Orphans wealth except to better it, when Orphan is mature give full measure justly; We do not burden any Soul beyond their capability; speak justly even if it concerns relative; fulfill Allah’s covenant; this He command’s that you may remember
153 and this is My way of leading straight: don’t follow other paths that will divert you away from His path. thus He command’s you that you may be Righteous
154 furthermore, We gave the Book to Moses fulfilling and explaining everything for the Righteous. a Guidance and Mercy and to believe in meeting with their Lord
  Section   20
155 and this is a blessed Book We’ve sent down explaining everything, follow it and be on-guard that you may receive Mercy
156 in case you say “the Book was revealed to Two (2) earlier Sect and we didn’t know what they studied;”
157 or you should say “if only we had received the Book, we would’ve followed the Guidance better” now since your Lord has sent you the Guidance and Mercy, who would be more wrong than the one who rejects Allah’s Revelations. for them soon is a dreadful punishment
158 are they waiting for the Angels or the Lord or His Sign to come to them? but the Day when it does comes it won’t benefit those who didn’t believe before or earned good through its Faith. say “you wait! so are We”
159 those who divide and break Religion into sect they are not your concern; their case lies with Allah who will inform them what they did
160 he who does good will receive Ten (10) times the same: he who does evil will receive according to his evil: none shall be wronged
161 say “my Lord has guided me on a straight path, the right Religion that of Abraham who was no Idolater”
162 say “my Prayer, sacrifice, living and dying are all for Allah. the Lord of the World’s”
163 no partners has He;, thus i am Commanded and i am the first to believe
164 say “shall i look for others, when Allah is Lord of all things? everyone earns on his own account and not answerable for others burden’s. you return to your Lord and He will inform you where you disputed”
165 He has made you Rulers of Earth: with some in higher ranks than others: to test you in the gifts He gave: for your Lord is quick in punishment: yet He’s often Forgiving most Merciful
