In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . Ha . Mim .
2 . A revelation from the Beneficent , the Merciful ,
3 . A scripture whereof the verses are expounded , a Lecture in Arabic for people who have knowledge .
4 . Good tidings and a warning . But most of them turn away so that they hear not .
5 . And they say : Our hearts are protected from that unto which thou ( O Muhammad ) callest us , and in our ears there is a deafness , and between us and thee there is a veil . Act , then . Lo! we also shall be acting .
6 . Say ( unto them O Muhammad ) : I am only a mortal like you . It is inspired in me that your God is One God , therefor take the straight path unto Him and seek forgiveness of Him . And woe unto the idolaters ,
7 . Who give not the poor due , and who are disbelievers in the Hereafter .
8 . Lo! as for those who believe and do good works , for them is a reward enduring .
9 . Say ( O Muhammad , unto the idolaters ) : Disbelieve ye verily in Him Who created the earth in two Days , and ascribe ye unto Him rivals? He ( and none else ) is the Lord of the Worlds .
10 . He placed therein firm hills rising above it , and blessed it and measured therein its sustenance in four Days , alike for ( all ) who ask ;
11 . Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke , and said unto it and unto the earth : Come both of you , willingly or loth . They said : We come , obedient .
12 . Then He ordained them seven heavens in two Days and inspired in each heaven its mandate ; and we decked the nether heaven with lamps , and rendered it inviolable . That is the measuring of the Mighty , the Knower .
13 . But if they turn away , then say : I warn you of a thunderbolt like the thunderbolt ( which fell of old upon the tribes ) of Aad and Thamud ;
14 . When their messengers came unto them from before them and behind them , saying : Worship none but Allah! they said : If our Lord had willed , He surely would have sent down angels ( unto us ) , so lo! we are disbelievers in that wherewith ye have been sent .
15 . As for Aad , they were arrogant in the land without right , and they said : Who is mightier than us in power? Could they not see that Allah Who created them , He was mightier than them in power? And they denied Our revelations .
16 . Therefor We let loose on them a raging wind in evil days , that We might make them taste the torment of disgrace in the life of the world . And verily the doom of the Hereafter will be more shameful , and they will not be helped .
17 . And as for Thamud , We gave them guidance , but they preferred blindness to the guidance , so the bolt of the doom of humiliation overtook them because of what they used to earn .
18 . And We delivered those who believed and used to keep their duty to Allah .
19 . And ( make mention of ) the day when the enemies of Allah are gathered unto the Fire , they are driven on
20 . Till , when they reach it , their ears and their eyes and their skins testify against them as to what they used to do .
21 . And they say unto their skins : Why testify ye against us? They say : Allah hath given us speech Who giveth speech to all things , and Who created you at the first , and unto Whom ye are returned .
22 . Ye did not hide yourselves lest your ears and your eyes and your skins should testify against you , but ye deemed that Allah knew riot much of what ye did .
23 . That , your thought which ye did think about your Lord , hath ruined you ; and ye find yourselves ( this day ) among the lost .
24 . And though they are resigned , yet the Fire is still their home ; and if they ask for favor , yet they are not of those unto whom favor can be shown .
25 . And We assigned them comrades ( in the world ) , who made their present and their past fair seeming unto them . And the Word concerning nations of the jinn and humankind who passed away before them hath effect for them . Verily they are the losers .
26 . Those who disbelieve say : Heed not this Quran , and drown the hearing of it ; haply ye may conquer .
27 . But verily We shall cause those who disbelieve to taste an awful doom , and verily We shall requite them the worst of what they used to do .
28 . That is the reward of Allah ' s enemies : the Fire . Therein is their immortal home ; payment forasmuch as they denied Our revelations .
29 . And those who disbelieve will say : Our Lord! Show us these who beguiled us of the jinn and humankind . We will place them underneath our feet that they may be among the nethermost .
30 . Lo! those who say : Our Lord is Allah , and afterward are upright , the angels descend upon them , saying : Fear not nor grieve , but bear good tidings of the paradise which ye are promised .
31 . We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the Hereafter . There ye will have ( all ) that your souls desire , and there ye will have ( all ) for which ye pray .
32 . A gift of welcome from the Forgiving , the Merciful .
33 . And who is better in speech than him who prayeth unto his Lord and doeth right , and saith : Lo! I am of those who surrender ( unto Him ) .
34 . The good deed and the evil deed are not alike . Repel the evil deed with one which is better , then lo! he , between whom and thee there was enmity ( will become ) as though he was a bosom friend .
35 . But none is granted it save those who are steadfast , and none is granted it save the owner of great happiness .
36 . And if a whisper from the devil reach thee ( O Muhammad ) then seek refuge in Allah . Lo! He is the Nearer , the Knower .
37 . And of His portents are the night and the day and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or the moon; but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if it is in truth Him Whom ye worship.
38 . But if they are too proud still those who are with thy Lord glorify Him night and day , and tire not .
39 . And of His portents ( is this ) : that thou seest the earth lowly , but when We send down water thereon it thrilleth and groweth . Lo! He who quickeneth it is verily the Quickener of the dead . Lo! He is Able to do all things .
40 . Lo! those who distort Our revelations are not hid from Us . Is he who is hurled into the Fire better , or he who cometh secure on the Day of Resurrection? Do what ye will . Lo! He is Seer of what ye do .
41 . Lo! those who disbelieve in the Reminder when it cometh unto them ( are guilty ) , for lo! it is an unassailable Scripture .
42 . Falsehood cannot come at it from before it or behind it . ( It is ) a revelation from the Wise , the Owner of Praise .
43 . Naught is said unto thee ( Muhammad ) save what was said unto the messengers before thee . Lo! thy Lord is owner of forgiveness , and owner ( also ) of dire punishment .
44 . And if We had appointed it a Lecture in a foreign tongue they would assuredly have said : If only its verses were expounded ( so that we might understand ) ? What! A foreign tongue and an Arab? Say unto them ( O Muhammad ) : For those who believe it is a guidance and a healing ; and as for those who disbelieve , there is a deafness in their ears , and it is blindness for them . Such are called to from afar .
45 . And We verily gave Moses the Scripture , but there hath been dispute concerning it ; and but for a Word that had already gone forth from thy Lord , it would ere now have been judged between them ; but lo! they are in hopeless doubt concerning it .
46 . Whoso doeth right it is for his soul , and whoso doeth wrong it is against it . And thy Lord is not at all a tyrant to His slaves .
47 . Unto Him is referred ( all ) knowledge of the Hour . And no fruits burst forth from their sheaths , and no female carrieth or bringeth forth but with His knowledge . And on the day when He calleth unto them : Where are now My partners? they will say : We confess unto Thee , not one of us is a witness ( for them ) .
48 . And those to whom they used to cry of old have failed them , and they perceive they have no place of refuge .
49 . Man tireth not of praying for good , and if all toucheth him , then he is disheartened , desperate .
50 . And verily , if We cause him to taste mercy after some hurt that hath touched him , he will say : This is my own ; and I deem not that the Hour will ever rise , and if I am brought back to my Lord , I surely shall be better off with Him But We verily shall tell those who disbelieve ( all ) that they did , and We verily shall make them taste hard punishment
51 . When We show favor unto man , he withdraweth and turneth aside , but when ill toucheth him then he aboundeth in prayer .
52 . Bethink you : If it is from Allah and ye reject it Who is further astray than one who is at open feud ( with Allah ) ?
53 . We shall show them Our portents on the horizons and within themselves until it will be manifest unto them that it is the Truth . Doth not thy Lord suffice , since He is Witness over all things?
54 . How! Are they still in doubt about the meeting with their Lord? Lo! Is not He surrounding all things?
