In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . O mankind! Fear your Lord . Lo! the earthquake of the Hour ( of Doom ) is a tremendous thing .
2 . On the day when ye behold it , every nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden , and thou ( Muhammad ) wilt see mankind a drunken , yet they will not be drunken , but the Doom of Allah will be strong ( upon them ) .
3 . Among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge , and followeth each froward devil ;
4 . For him it is decreed that whoso taketh him for friend , be verily will mislead him and will guide him to the punishment of the Flame .
5 . O mankind! if ye are in doubt concerning the Resurrection , then lo! We have created you from dust , then from a drop of seed , then from a clot , then from a little lump of flesh shapely and shapeless , that We may make ( it ) clean for you . And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time , and afterward We bring you forth as infants , then ( give you growth ) that ye attain your full strength . And among you there is he who dieth ( young ) , and among you there is he who is brought back to the most abject time of life , so that , after knowledge , he knoweth naught . And thou ( Muhammad ) seest the earth barren , but when We send down water thereon , it doth thrill and swell and Put forth every lovely kind ( of growth ) .
6 . That is because Allah , He is the Truth . Lo! He quickeneth the dead , and lo! He is Able to do all things ;
7 . And because the Hour will come , there is no doubt thereof ; and because Allah will raise those who are in the graves .
8 . And among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge or guidance or a Scripture giving light .
9 . Turning away in pride to beguile ( men ) from the way of Allah . For him in this world is ignominy , and on the Day of Resurrection We make him taste the doom of burning .
10 . ( And unto him it will be said ) : This is for that which thy two hands have sent before , and because Allah is no oppressor of His slaves .
11 . And among mankind is he who worshippeth Allah upon a narrow marge so that if good befalleth him he is content therewith , but if a trial befalleth him , he falleth away utterly . He loseth both the world and the Hereafter . That is the sheer loss .
12 . He calleth , beside Allah , unto that which hurteth him not nor benefiteth him . That is the far error .
13 . He calleth unto him whose harm is nearer than his benefit ; verily an evil patron and verity an evil friend!
14 . Lo! Allah causeth those who believe and do good works to enter the Gardens underneath which rivers flow . Lo! Allah doth what He intendeth .
15 . Whoso is wont to think ( through envy ) that Allah will not give him ( Muhammad ) victory in the world and the Hereafter ( and is enraged at the thought of his victory ) , let him stretch a rope up to the roof ( of his dwelling ) , and let him hang himself . Then let him see whether his strategy dispelleth that whereat he rageth!
16 . Thus We reveal it as plain revelations , and verily Allah guideth whom He will .
17 . Lo! those who believe ( this Revelation ) , and those who are Jews , and the Sabaeans and the Christians and the Magians and the idolaters . Lo! Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection . Lo! Allah is Witness over all things .
18 . Hast thou not seen that unto Allah payeth adoration whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth , and the sun , and the moon , and the stars , and the hills , and the trees , and the beasts , and many of mankind , while there are many unto whom the doom is justly due . He whom Allah scorneth , there is none to give him honor . Lo! Allah doeth what He will .
19 . These twain ( the believers and the disbelievers ) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord . But as for those who disbelieve , garments of fire will be cut out for them ; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads .
20 . Whereby that which is in their bellies , and their skins too , will be melted ;
21 . And for them are hooked rods of iron .
22 . Whenever , in their anguish , they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and ( it is said unto them ) : Taste the doom of burning .
23 . Lo! Allah will cause those who believe and do good works to enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow , wherein they will be allowed armlets of gold , and pearls , and their raiment therein will be silk .
24 . They are guided unto gentle speech ; they are guided unto the path of the Glorious One .
25 . Lo! those who disbelieve and bar ( men ) from the way of Allah and from the Inviolable Place of Worship , which We have appointed for mankind together , the dweller therein and the nomad ; whosoever seeketh wrongful partiality therein , him We shall cause to taste a painful doom .
26 . And ( remember ) when We prepared for Abraham the place of the ( holy ) House , saying : Ascribe thou no thing as partner unto Me , and purify My House for those who make the round ( thereof ) and those who stand and those who bow and make prostration .
27 . And proclaim unto mankind the Pilgrimage . They will come unto thee on foot and on every lean camel ; they will come from every deep ravine .
28 . That they may witness things that are of benefit to them , and mention the name of Allah on appointed days over the beast of cattle that He hath bestowed upon them . Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor unfortunate .
29 . Then let them make an end of their unkemptness and pay their vows and go around the ancient House .
30 . That ( is the command ) . And whoso magnifieth the sacred things of Allah , it will be well for him in the sight of his Lord . The cattle are lawful unto you save that which hath been told you . So shun the filth of idols , and shun lying speech .
31 . Turning unto Allah ( only ) , not ascribing partners unto Him ; for whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah , it is as if he had fallen from the sky and the birds had snatched him or the wind had blown him to a far off place .
32 . That ( is the command ) . And whoso magnifieth the offerings consecrated to Allah , it surely is from devotion of the hearts .
33 . Therein are benefits for you for an appointed term ; and afterward they are brought for sacrifice unto the ancient House .
34 . And for every nation have We appointed a ritual , that they may mention the name of Allah over the beast of cattle that He hath given them for food ; and your God is One God , therefor surrender unto Him . And give good tidings ( O Muhammad ) to the humble .
35 . Whose hearts fear when Allah is mentioned , and the patient of whatever may befall them , and those who establish worship and who spend of that We have bestowed on them .
36 . And the camels! We have appointed them among the ceremonies of Allah . Therein ye have much good . So mention the name of Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines . Then when their flanks fall ( dead ) , eat thereof and feed the beggar and the suppliant . Thus have We made them subject unto you , that haply ye may give thanks .
37 . Their flesh and their blood reach not Allah , but the devotion from you reacheth Him . Thus have We made them subject unto you that ye may magnify Allah that He hath guided you . And give good tidings ( O Muhammad ) to the good .
38 . Lo! Allah defendeth those who are true . Lo! Allah loveth not each treacherous ingrate .
39 . Sanction is given unto those who fight because they have been wronged ; and Allah is indeed Able to give them victory ;
40 . Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said : Our Lord is Allah . For had it not been for Allah ' s repelling some men by means of others , cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques , wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned , would assuredly have been pulled down . Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him . Lo! Allah is Strong , Almighty .
41 . Those who , if We give them power in the land , establish worship and pay the poor due and enjoin kindness and forbid iniquity . And Allah ' s is the sequel of events .
42 . If they deny thee ( Muhammad ) , even so the folk of Noah , and ( the tribes of ) Aad and Thamud , before thee , denied ( Our messengers ) ;
43 . And the folk of Abraham and the folk of Lot ;
44 . ( And ) the dwellers in Midian . And Moses was denied ; but I indulged the disbelievers a long while , then I seized them , and how ( terrible ) was My abhorrence!
45 . How many a township have We destroyed while it was sinful , so that it lieth ( to this day ) in , and ( how many ) a deserted well and lofty tower!
46 . Have they not travelled in the land , and have they hearts wherewith to feel and ears wherewith to hear? For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind , but it is the hearts , which are within the bosoms , that grow blind .
47 . And they will bid thee hasten on the Doom , and Allah faileth not His promise , but lo! a Day with Allah is as a the sand years of what ye reckon .
48 . And how many a township did I suffer long though it was sinful! Than I grasped it . Unto Me is the return .
49 . Say : O mankind! I am only a plain warner unto you .
50 . Those who believe and do good works , for them pardon and a rich provision ;
51 . While those who strive to thwart Our revelations , such are rightful owners of the Fire .
52 . Never sent We a messenger or a Prophet before thee but when He recited ( the message ) Satan proposed ( opposition ) in respect of that which he recited thereof . But Allah abolisheth that which Satan proposeth . Then Allah establisheth His revelations . Allah is Knower , Wise ;
53 . That He may make that which the devil proposeth a temptation for those in whose hearts is a disease , and those whose hearts are hardened Lo! the evil doers are in open schism .
54 . And that those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from thy Lord , so that they may believe therein and their hearts may submit humbly unto Him . Lo! Allah verily is guiding those who believe unto a right path .
55 . And those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt thereof until the Hour come upon them unawares , or there come unto them the doom of a disastrous day .
56 . The Sovereignty on that day will be Allah ' s . He will judge between them . Then those who believed and did good works will be in Gardens of Delight ,
57 . While those who disbelieved and denied Our revelations , for them will be a shameful doom .
58 . Those who fled their homes for the cause of Allah and then were slain or died , Allah verily will provide for them a good provision . Lo! Allah , He verily is Best of all who make provision .
59 . Assuredly He will cause them to enter by an entry that they will love . Lo! Allah verily is knower , Indulgent .
60 . That ( is so ) . And whoso hath retaliated with the like of that which he was made to suffer and then hath ( again ) been wronged , Allah will succour him . Lo! Allah verily is , Mild , Forgiving .
61 . That is because Allah maketh the night to pass into the day and maketh the day to pass into the night , and because Allah is Hearer , Seer .
62 . That is because Allah , He is the True , and that whereon they call instead of Him , it is the False , and because Allah , He is the High , the Great .
63 . Seest thou not how Allah sendeth down water from the sky and then the earth becometh green upon the morrow? Lo! Allah is Subtile , Aware .
64 . Unto Him belongeth all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth . Lo! Allah , He verily is the Absolute , the Owner of Praise .
65 . Hast thou not seem how Allah hath made all that is in the earth subservient unto you? And the sap runneth upon the sea by His command , and He holdeth back the heaven from falling on the earth unless by His leave . Lo! Allah is , for mankind , Full of Pity , Merciful .
66 . And He it is Who gave you life , then He will cause you to die , and then will give you life ( again ) . Lo! man is verily an ingrate .
67 . Unto each nation have We given sacred riles which they are to perform ; so let them not dispute with thee of the matter , but summon thou unto thy Lord . Lo! thou indeed followest right guidance .
68 . And if thy wrangle with thee , say : Allah is best aware of what ye do .
69 . Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein ye used to differ .
70 . Hast thou not known that Allah knoweth all that is in the heaven and the earth? Lo! it is in a record . Lo! that is easy for Allah .
71 . And they worship instead of Allah that for which no warrant hath been revealed unto them , and that whereof they have no knowledge . For evil doers there is no helper .
72 . And when Our revelations are recited unto them , thou knowest the denial in the faces of those who disbelieve ; they all but attack those who recite Our revelations unto them . Say : Shall I proclaim unto you worse than that? The Fire! Allah hath promised it for the who disbelieve . A hapless journey ' s end!
73 . O mankind! A similitude is coined , so pay ye heed to it : Lo! those on whom ye call beside Allah will never create a fly though they combine together for the purpose . And if the fly took something from them , they could not rescue it from him . So weak are ( both ) the seeker and the sought!
74 . They measure not Allah His rightful measure . Lo! Allah is Strong , almighty .
75 . Allah chooseth from the angels messengers , and ( also ) from mankind . Lo! Allah is Nearer , Seer .
76 . He knoweth all that is before them and all that is hind them , and unto Allah all things are returned .
77 . O , ye who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves , and worship your Lord , and do good , that haply ye may prosper .
78 . And strive for Allah with the endeavor which is His right . He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship ; the faith of your father Abraham ( is yours ) . He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this ( Scripture ) , that the messenger may be a witness against you , and that ye may be witnesses against mankind . So establish worship , pay the poor due , and hold fast to Allah . He is your Protecting Friend . A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!
