040.000 The Believer

 

040.001

Ha. Mim.

040.002

The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the Mighty, the Knower,

040.003

The Forgiver of sin, the Accepter of repentance, the Stern in punishment, the Bountiful. There is no God save Him. Unto Him is the journeying.

040.004

None argue concerning the revelations of Allah save those who disbelieve, so let not their turn of fortune in the land deceive thee (O Muhammad).

040.005

The folk of Noah and the factions after them denied (their messengers) before these, and every nation purposed to seize their messenger and argued falsely, (thinking) thereby to refute the Truth. Then I seized them, and how (awful) was My punishment.

040.006

Thus was the word of thy Lord concerning those who disbelieve fulfilled: That they are owners of the Fire.

040.007

Those who bear the Throne, and all who are round about it, hymn the praises of their Lord and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who believe (saying): Our Lord! Thou comprehendest all things in mercy and knowledge, therefor forgive those who repent and follow Thy way. Ward off from them the punishment of hell.

040.008

Our Lord! And make them enter the Gardens of Eden which thou hast promised them, with such of their fathers and their wives and their descendants as do right. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Mighty, the Wise.

040.009

And ward off from them ill-deeds; and he from whom Thou wardest off ill-deeds that day, him verily hast Thou taken into mercy. That is the supreme triumph.

040.010

Lo! (on that day) those who disbelieve are informed by proclamation: Verily Allah's abhorrence is more terrible than your abhorrence one of another, when ye were called unto the faith but did refuse.

040.011

They say: Our Lord! Twice hast Thou made us die, and twice hast Thou made us live. Now we confess our sins. Is there any way to go out ?

040.012

(It is said unto them): This is (your plight) because, when Allah only was invoked, ye disbelieved, but when some partner was ascribed to Him ye were believing. But the command belongeth only to Allah, the Sublime, the Majestic.

040.013

He it is Who showeth you His portents, and sendeth down for you provision from the sky. None payeth heed save him who turneth (unto Him) repentant.

040.014

Therefor (O believers) pray unto Allah, making religion pure for Him (only), however much the disbelievers be averse -

040.015

The Exalter of Ranks, the Lord of the Throne. He causeth the Spirit of His command upon whom He will of His slaves, that He may warn of the Day of Meeting,

040.016

The day when they come forth, nothing of them being hidden from Allah. Whose is the Sovereignty this day ? It is Allah's, the One, the Almighty.

040.017

This day is each soul requited that which it hath earned; no wrong (is done) this day. Lo! Allah is swift at reckoning.

040.018

Warn them (O Muhammad) of the Day of the approaching (doom), when the hearts will be choking the throats, (when) there will be no friend for the wrong-doers, nor any intercessor who will be heard.

040.019

He knoweth the traitor of the eyes, and that which the bosoms hide.

040.020

Allah judgeth with truth, while those to whom they cry instead of Him judge not at all. Lo! Allah, He is the Hearer, the Seer.

040.021

Have they not travelled in the land to see the nature of the consequence for those who disbelieved before them ? They were mightier than these in power and (in the) traces (which they left behind them) in the earth. Yet Allah seized them for their sins, and they had no protector from Allah.

040.022

That was because their messengers kept bringing them clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty) but they disbelieved; so Allah seized them. Lo! He is Strong, severe in punishment.

040.023

And verily We sent Moses with Our revelations and a clear warrant

040.024

Unto Pharaoh and Haman and Korah, but they said: A lying sorcerer!

040.025

And when he brought them the Truth from Our presence, they said: Slay the sons of those who believe with him, and spare their women. But the plot of disbelievers is in naught but error.

040.026

And Pharaoh said: Suffer me to kill Moses, and let him cry unto his Lord. Lo! I fear that he will alter your religion or that he will cause confusion in the land.

040.027

Moses said: Lo! I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every scorner who believeth not in a Day of Reckoning.

040.028

And a believing man of Pharaoh's family, who hid his faith, said: Would ye kill a man because he saith: My Lord is Allah, and hath brought you clear proofs from your Lord ? If he is lying, then his lie is upon him; and if he is truthful, then some of that wherewith he threateneth you will strike you. Lo! Allah guideth not one who is a prodigal, a liar.

040.029

O my people! Yours is the kingdom to-day, ye being uppermost in the land. But who would save us from the wrath of Allah should it reach us ? Pharaoh said: I do but show you what I think, and I do but guide you to wise policy.

040.030

And he who believed said: O my people! Lo! I fear for you a fate like that of the factions (of old);

040.031

A plight like that of Noah's folk, and A'ad and Thamud, and those after them, and Allah willeth no injustice for (His) slaves.

040.032

And, O my people! Lo! I fear for you a Day of Summoning,

040.033

A day when ye will turn to flee, having no preserver from Allah: and he whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide.

040.034

And verily Joseph brought you of old clear proofs, yet ye ceased not to be in doubt concerning what he brought you till, when he died, ye said: Allah will not send any messenger after him. Thus Allah deceiveth him who is a prodigal, a doubter.

040.035

Those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah without any warrant that hath come unto them, it is greatly hateful in the sight of Allah and in the sight of those who believe. Thus doth Allah print on every arrogant, disdainful heart.

040.036

And Pharaoh said: O Haman! Build for me a tower that haply I may reach the roads,

040.037

The roads of the heavens, and may look upon the God of Moses, though verily I think him a liar. Thus was the evil that he did made fairseeming unto Pharaoh, and he was debarred from the (right) way. The plot of Pharaoh ended but in ruin.

040.038

And he who believed said: O my people! Follow me. I will show you the way of right conduct.

040.039

O my people! Lo! this life of the world is but a passing comfort, and lo! the Hereafter, that is the enduring home.

040.040

Whoso doeth an ill-deed, he will be repaid the like thereof, while whoso doeth right, whether male or female, and is a believer, (all) such will enter the Garden, where they will be nourished without stint.

040.041

And, O my people! What aileth me that I call you unto deliverance when ye call me unto the Fire ?

040.042

Ye call me to disbelieve in Allah and ascribe unto Him as partners that whereof I have no knowledge, while I call you unto the Mighty, the Forgiver.

040.043

Assuredly that whereunto ye call me hath no claim in the world or in the Hereafter, and our return will be unto Allah, and the prodigals will be owners of the Fire.

040.044

And ye will remember what I say unto you. I confide my cause unto Allah. Lo! Allah is Seer of (His) slaves.

040.045

So Allah warded off from him the evils which they plotted, while a dreadful doom encompassed Pharaoh's folk,

040.046

The Fire; they are exposed to it morning and evening; and on the day when the Hour upriseth (it is said): Cause Pharaoh's folk to enter the most awful doom.

040.047

And when they wrangle in the Fire, the weak say unto those who were proud: Lo! we were a following unto you; will ye therefor rid us of a portion of the Fire ?

040.048

Those who were proud say: Lo! we are all (together) herein. Lo! Allah hath judged between (His) slaves.

040.049

And those in the Fire say unto the guards of hell: Entreat your Lord that He relieve us of a day of the torment.

040.050

They say: Came not your messengers unto you with clear proofs ? They say: Yea, verily. They say: Then do ye pray, although the prayer of disbelievers is in vain.

040.051

Lo! We verily do help Our messengers, and those who believe, in the life of the world and on the day when the witnesses arise,

040.052

The day when their excuse availeth not the evil-doers, and theirs is the curse, and theirs the ill abode.

040.053

And We verily gave Moses the guidance, and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture,

040.054

A guide and a reminder for men of understanding.

040.055

Then have patience (O Muhammad). Lo! the promise of Allah is true. And ask forgiveness of thy sin, and hymn the praise of thy Lord at fall of night and in the early hours.

040.056

Lo! those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah without a warrant having come unto them, there is naught else in their breasts save pride which they will never attain. So take thou refuge in Allah. Lo! He, only He, is the Hearer, the Seer.

040.057

Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind; but most of mankind know not.

040.058

And the blind man and the seer are not equal, neither are those who believe and do good works (equal with) the evil-doer. Little do ye reflect!

040.059

Lo! the Hour is surely coming, there is no doubt thereof; yet most of mankind believe not.

040.060

And your Lord hath said: Pray unto Me and I will hear your prayer. Lo! those who scorn My service, they will enter hell, disgraced.

040.061

Allah it is Who hath appointed for you night that ye may rest therein, and day for seeing. Lo! Allah is a Lord of bounty for mankind, yet most of mankind give not thanks.

040.062

Such is Allah, your Lord, the Creator of all things, There is no God save Him. How then are ye perverted ?

040.063

Thus are they perverted who deny the revelations of Allah.

040.064

Allah it is Who appointed for you the earth for a dwelling-place and the sky for a canopy, and fashioned you and perfected your shapes, and hath provided you with good things. Such is Allah, your Lord. Then blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!

040.065

He is the Living One. There is no God save Him. So pray unto Him, making religion pure for Him (only). Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds!

040.066

Say (O Muhammad): I am forbidden to worship those unto whom ye cry beside Allah since there have come unto me clear proofs from my Lord, and I am commanded to surrender to the Lord of the Worlds.

040.067

He it is Who created you from dust, then from a drop (of seed) then from a clot, then bringeth you forth as a child, then (ordaineth) that ye attain full strength and afterward that ye become old men - though some among you die before - and that ye reach an appointed term, that haply ye may understand.

040.068

He it is Who quickeneth and giveth death. When He ordaineth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is.

040.069

Hast thou not seen those who wrangle concerning the revelations of Allah, how they are turned away ? -

040.070

Those who deny the Scripture and that wherewith We send Our messengers. But they will come to know,

040.071

When carcans are about their necks and chains. They are dragged

040.072

Through boiling waters; then they are thrust into the Fire.

040.073

Then it is said unto them: Where are (all) that ye used to make partners (in the Sovereignty)

040.074

Beside Allah ? They say: They have failed us; but we used not to pray to anything before. Thus doth Allah send astray the disbelievers (in His guidance).

040.075

(And it is said unto them): This is because ye exulted in the earth without right, and because ye were petulant.

040.076

Enter ye the gates of hell, to dwell therein. Evil is the habitation of the scornful.

040.077

Then have patience (O Muhammad). Lo! the promise of Allah is true. And whether we let thee see a part of that which We promise them, or (whether) We cause thee to die, still unto Us they will be brought back.

040.078

Verily We sent messengers before thee, among them those of whom We have told thee, and some of whom We have not told thee; and it was not given to any messenger that he should bring a portent save by Allah's leave, but when Allah's commandment cometh (the cause) is judged aright, and the followers of vanity will then be lost.

040.079

Allah it is Who hath appointed for you cattle, that ye may ride on some of them, and eat of some -

040.080

(Many) benefits ye have from them - and that ye may satisfy by their means a need that is in your breasts, and may be borne upon them as upon the ship.

040.081

And He showeth you His tokens. Which, then, of the tokens of Allah do ye deny ?

040.082

Have they not travelled in the land to see the nature of the consequence for those before them ? They were more numerous than these, and mightier in power and (in the) traces (which they left behind them) in the earth. But all that they used to earn availed them not.

040.083

And when their messengers brought them clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty) they exulted in the knowledge they (themselves) possessed. And that which they were wont to mock befell them.

040.084

Then, when they saw Our doom, they said: We believe in Allah only and reject (all) that we used to associate (with Him).

040.085

But their faith could not avail them when they saw Our doom. This is Allah's law which hath ever taken course for His bondmen. And then the disbelievers will be ruined.
