ALLAH in the
name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
Alif Lam Mim.
The Romans have been subdued.
In the nearby land and after their subjugation they
will soon overcome.
In a few years. The command is of Allah only before
and after. And on that day the believers shall
With the help of Allah, He helps whom He pleases.
And He is the Mighty, the Merciful.
This is the promise of Allah, Allah breaks not His
promise, but most of the people know not.
They know only the outer appearance of the worldly
life, and they are fully unaware of the Hereafter.
Have they-not pondered within themselves? Allah has
not created the heavens and the earth and whatever
is between them but with truth and for an appointed
term. And undoubtedly, most of the people are
deniers of the meeting with their Lord.
And have they not traveled in the land so that they
might see how was the end of those before them? They
were more powerful than these, and they tilled the
soil and populated it. And their Messengers brought
to them bright signs. Then it was not befitting to
the dignity of Allah Who would oppress them; yes
they used to oppress themselves.
Then the end of those who committed evil to their
limit was this that they began to belie the signs of
Allah and to mock at them.
Allah Creates for the first time then He shall make
for the second time, then you shall be returned to
And the day when the Hour shall be established the
culprits shall despair.
And their associates shall not be their intercessors
and they will deny their associates.
And the day when the Hour shall be established the
day they will be separated.
Then those who believed and did good deeds, they
shall be entertained in the flowerbed of the garden.
And those who became infidels and belied Our signs
and the meeting of the Hereafter, they shall be
brought into the torment.
Therefore, glorify Allah when you enter the evening
and when you enter the morning.
And His is praise in the heavens and in the earth,
and at little before the setting of sun and when you
enter the noon.
He brings forth the living from the dead and brings
forth the dead from the living, and gives life to
the earth after its death. And in like manner you
shall be brought forth.
And of His signs is this that He created you from
dust, then henceforth you are human beings scattered
in the world.
And of His signs is that He created for you from
among yourselves couple that you may find repose in
them and He put love and mercy between you. No
doubt, in it are signs for a people who ponder.
And of His signs is the creation of heavens and
earth, and the diversity of your tongues and
colours. No doubt, in it are signs for those who
And of His signs is your sleeping by night and day
and your seeking of His bounty. No doubt, in it are
signs for those who hear.
And of His signs is that He shows you lightening
frightening you and making you hopeful and sends
down water from the heaven and gives life therewith
the earth after its death. No doubt, in it are signs
for a people of understanding.
And of His signs is that the heaven and the earth
stand firm by His command. Then when He will call
you from the earth, henceforth you will come out.
And to Him belongs whosoever is in the heavens and
the earth. All are under His command.
And He it is, Who makes first, then He will make it
for the second time, and it should be most easy for
Him in your understanding. And for Him is the, most
exalted state in the heavens and in the earth and He
is the Honorable, the Wise.
He narrates for you an example from your own
conditions. Are some of your servants the possession
of your hand partners in what We have provided for
you so that you all become equal therein, you fear
them as you fear each other? Thus do We explain the
detail signs for a people who understand.
Nay! the unjust followed their own desires without
knowledge. Then who will guide him whom Allah has
led astray. And they have no helpers.
Therefore, set right your face for the obedience of
Allah being one devoted to Him only. The established
pattern of Allah upon which He has created mankind.
No change in the created things of Allah. This is
the only right religion. But most of the people know
Turning to Him in repentance and fear Him and
establish prayer and be not of the associaters.
Of those who have split up their religion and have
become many groups. Every group is happy over what
And when any hurt touches mankind, they call their
Lord, turning towards Him, then when He lets them
taste mercy from Him, henceforth, a group of them
use to associate partners with their Lord.
That they may be ungrateful for what We have given
them. So enjoy then, now soon you are to know.
Or have We sent down any authority upon them that it
is speaking of them as Our associaters?
And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy, they
rejoice in it. And if any evil befalls them, the
recompense of what their hands have sent forth,
hence they despair.
Have they not seen that Allah expands the provision
for whomsoever He pleases, and straitens for
whomsoever He pleases? Undoubtedly, in it there are
signs for the believers.
Therefore, give the kinsman his due and the needy
and the wayfarer. This is better for those who seek
the pleasure of Allah and it is they who became
And whatever you give to take back more that it may
increase the wealth of the givers, then it will not
increase with Allah, and whatever you give as
charity desiring Allah's pleasure, then those have
two fold increase.
Allah is He Who created you then provided for you,
then He will cause you to die, and then He will give
you life. Is there any such of your associates who
may do any of these things? Glorified and Exalted is
He above from what they associate.
The mischief has appeared in the land and sea,
because of the evils earned by the hands of men, so
that He may make them taste some of their doings,
that haply they may turn back.
Say you, travel in the land and see what was the end
of those before you. Most of them were associators.
Therefore, set your face right for the prayer before
there comes a day, which is not to be averted from
Allah, on that day they shall be divided.
Whoso commits infidelity, the burden of his
disbelief is on him and those who do good, they are
preparing for themselves.
In order that He may reward those who have believed
and have done good deeds out of His grace.
Undoubtedly He loves not the infidels.
And of His signs is that He sends the winds as
bearers of glad tidings and in order that He may
cause you to taste of His mercy and that the ship
may sail with His command and that you seek His
grace and that you may be grateful.
And undoubtedly, We sent so many Messengers before
you, towards their people and they brought them open
signs, then We took vengeance from the culprits. And
it is on Our grace binding to help the Muslims.
Allah is He Who sends the winds that lift the
clouds, then He spreads it in the sky as He pleases,
and breaks its into fragments, then you see the rain
is pouring from its midst. Then when He causes it to
reach on whom He pleases of His bondmen, Lo! they
Though before it was sent down upon them, they had
shattered their hopes.
Look then the effects of the mercy of Allah, how He
gives life to the earth after its death, no doubt,
He will give life to the dead, and He can do
And if We send any wind by which they see their
harvest yellow, then they would certainly thereafter
Continue to he ungrateful.
Therefore you make not the dead to hear nor you make
the deaf to hear the call when they turn away
showing their backs.
And nor you guide the blind from their error. You
make only those to hear who believe in Our signs and
they have already surrendered.
Allah is He who made you weak in the beginning, then
He gave you strength after weakness, then after
strength caused weakness and old age. He makes what
he likes. He is the Knowing, the Authoritative.
And the day when the Hour shall be established, the
culprits will swear, that they tarried not but an
hour. Thus, they were turned down.
And those who were given knowledge and faith said,
'undoubtedly, you have tarried according to the
writing of Allah, until the Day of Rising up. This
then is Day of Rising up but you did not know.
Therefore on that day, their excuses shall not
benefit the oppressors, nor will any one demand them
to please Allah.
And undoubtedly, We have set in this Qur'an every
kind of examples for the people. If you bring them
any sign, the infidels would certainly say then,
'you are not but on falsehood'.
Thus does Allah seal the hearts of those who do not
Therefore have patience undoubtedly, the promise of
Allah is true, and let not those who have no
conviction make you light.
