043.000 Ornaments of Gold

 

043.001

Ha. Mim.

043.002

By the Scripture which maketh plain,

043.003

Lo! We have appointed it a Lecture, in Arabic that haply ye may understand.

043.004

And Lo! in the Source of Decrees, which We possess, it is indeed sublime, decisive.

043.005

Shall We utterly ignore you because ye are a wanton folk ?

043.006

How many a prophet did We send among the men of old!

043.007

And never came there unto them a prophet but they used to mock him.

043.008

Then We destroyed men mightier than these in prowess; and the example of the men of old hath gone (before them).

043.009

And if thou (Muhammad) ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely answer: The Mighty, the Knower created them;

043.010

Who made the earth a resting-place for you, and placed roads for you therein, that haply ye may find your way;

043.011

And Who sendeth down water from the sky in (due) measure, and We revive a dead land therewith. Even so will ye be brought forth;

043.012

He Who created all the pairs, and appointed for you ships and cattle whereupon ye ride.

043.013

That ye may mount upon their backs, and may remember your Lord's favour when ye mount thereon, and may say: Glorified be He Who hath subdued these unto us, and we were not capable (of subduing them);

043.014

And lo! unto our Lord we surely are returning.

043.015

And they allot to Him a portion of His bondmen! Lo! man is verily a mere ingrate.

043.016

Or chooseth He daughters of all that He hath created, and honoureth He you with sons ?

043.017

And if one of them hath tidings of that which he likeneth to the Beneficent One, his countenance becometh black and he is full of inward rage.

043.018

(Liken they then to Allah) that which is bred up in outward show, and in dispute cannot make itself plain ?

043.019

And they make the angels, who are the slaves of the Beneficent, females. Did they witness their creation ? Their testimony will be recorded and they will be questioned.

043.020

And they say: If the Beneficent One had (so) willed, we should not have worshipped them. They have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They do but guess.

043.021

Or have We given them any scripture before (this Qur'an) so that they are holding fast thereto ?

043.022

Nay, for they say only: Lo! we found our fathers following a religion, and we are guided by their footprints.

043.023

And even so We sent not a warner before thee (Muhammad) into any township but its luxurious ones said: Lo! we found our fathers following a religion, and we are following their footprints.

043.024

(And the warner) said: What! Even though I bring you better guidance than that ye found your fathers following ? They answered: Lo! in what ye bring we are disbelievers.

043.025

So We requited them. Then see the nature of the consequence for the rejecters!

043.026

And when Abraham said unto his father and his folk: Lo! I am innocent of what ye worship

043.027

Save Him Who did create me, for He will surely guide me.

043.028

And he made it a word enduring among his seed, that haply they might return.

043.029

Nay, but I let these and their fathers enjoy life (only) till there should come unto them the Truth and a messenger making plain.

043.030

And now that the Truth hath come unto them they say: This is mere magic, and lo! we are disbelievers therein.

043.031

And they say: If only this Qur'an had been revealed to some great man of the two towns ?

043.032

Is it they who apportion thy Lord's mercy ? We have apportioned among them their livelihood in the life of the world, and raised some of them above others in rank that some of them may take labour from others; and the mercy of thy Lord is better than (the wealth) that they amass.

043.033

And were it not that mankind would have become one community, We might well have appointed, for those who disbelieve in the Beneficent, roofs of silver for their houses and stairs (of silver) whereby to mount,

043.034

And for their houses doors (of silver) and couches of silver whereon to recline,

043.035

And ornaments of gold. Yet all that would have been but a provision of the life of the world. And the Hereafter with your Lord would have been for those who keep from evil.

043.036

And he whose sight is dim to the remembrance of the Beneficent, We assign unto him a devil who becometh his comrade;

043.037

And lo! they surely turn them from the way of Allah, and yet they deem that they are rightly guided;

043.038

Till, when he cometh unto Us, he saith (unto his comrade): Ah, would that between me and thee there were the distance of the two horizons - an evil comrade!

043.039

And it profiteth you not this day, because ye did wrong, that ye will be sharers in the doom.

043.040

Canst thou (Muhammad) make the deaf to hear, or canst thou guide the blind or him who is in error manifest ?

043.041

And if We take thee away, We surely shall take vengeance on them,

043.042

Or (if) We show thee that wherewith We threaten them; for lo! We have complete command of them.

043.043

So hold thou fast to that which is inspired in thee. Lo! thou art on a right path.

043.044

And lo! it is in truth a Reminder for thee and for thy folk; and ye will be questioned.

043.045

And ask those of Our messengers whom We sent before thee: Did We ever appoint gods to be worshipped beside the Beneficent ?

043.046

And verily We sent Moses with Our revelations unto Pharaoh and his chiefs, and he said: I am a messenger of the Lord of the Worlds.

043.047

But when he brought them Our tokens, behold! they laughed at them.

043.048

And every token that We showed them was greater than its sister (token), and We grasped them with the torment, that haply they might turn again.

043.049

And they said: O wizard! Entreat thy Lord for us by the pact that He hath made with thee. Lo! we verily will walk aright.

043.050

But when We eased them of the torment, behold! they broke their word.

043.051

And Pharaoh caused a proclamation to be made among his people saying: O my people! Is not mine the sovereignty of Egypt and these rivers flowing under me ? Can ye not then discern ?

043.052

I am surely better than this fellow, who is despicable and can hardly make (his meaning) plain!

043.053

Why, then, have armlets of gold not been set upon him, or angels sent along with him ?

043.054

Thus he persuaded his people to make light (of Moses), and they obeyed him. Lo! they were a wanton folk.

043.055

So, when they angered Us, We punished them and drowned them every one.

043.056

And We made them a thing past, and an example for those after (them).

043.057

And when the son of Mary is quoted as an example, behold! the folk laugh out,

043.058

And say: Are our gods better, or is he ? They raise not the objection save for argument. Nay! but they are a contentious folk.

043.059

He is nothing but a slave on whom We bestowed favour, and We made him a pattern for the Children of Israel.

043.060

And had We willed We could have set among you angels to be viceroys in the earth.

043.061

And lo! verily there is knowledge of the Hour. So doubt ye not concerning it, but follow Me. This is the right path.

043.062

And let not Satan turn you aside. Lo! he is an open enemy for you.

043.063

When Jesus came with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), he said: I have come unto you with wisdom, and to make plain some of that concerning which ye differ. So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.

043.064

Lo! Allah, He is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. This is a right path.

043.065

But the factions among them differed. Then woe unto those who do wrong from the doom of a painful day.

043.066

Await they aught save the Hour, that it shall come upon them suddenly, when they know not ?

043.067

Friends on that day will be foes one to another, save those who kept their duty (to Allah).

043.068

O My slaves! For you there is no fear this day, nor is it ye who grieve;

043.069

(Ye) who believed Our revelations and were self-surrendered,

043.070

Enter the Garden, ye and your wives, to be made glad.

043.071

Therein are brought round for them trays of gold and goblets, and therein is all that souls desire and eyes find sweet. And ye are immortal therein.

043.072

This is the Garden which ye are made to inherit because of what ye used to do.

043.073

Therein for you is fruit in plenty whence to eat.

043.074

Lo! the guilty are immortal in hell's torment.

043.075

It is not relaxed for them, and they despair therein.

043.076

We wronged them not, but they it was who did the wrong.

043.077

And they cry: O master! Let thy Lord make an end of us. He saith: Lo! here ye must remain.

043.078

We verily brought the Truth unto you, but ye were, most of you, averse to the Truth.

043.079

Or do they determine any thing (against the Prophet) ? Lo! We (also) are determining.

043.080

Or deem they that We cannot hear their secret thoughts and private confidences ? Nay, but Our envoys, present with them, do record.

043.081

Say (O Muhammad): If the Beneficent One hath a son, then, I shall be first among the worshippers. (But there is no son).

043.082

Glorified be the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne, from that which they ascribe (unto Him)!

043.083

So let them flounder (in their talk) and play until they meet the Day which they are promised.

043.084

And He it is Who in the heaven is God, and in the earth God. He is the Wise, the Knower.

043.085

And blessed be He unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and with Whom is knowledge of the Hour, and unto Whom ye will be returned.

043.086

And those unto whom they cry instead of Him possess no power of intercession, saving him who beareth witness unto the Truth knowingly.

043.087

And if thou ask them who created them, they will surely say: Allah. How then are they turned away ?

043.088

And he saith: O my Lord! Lo! these are a folk who believe not.

043.089

Then bear with them (O Muhammad) and say: Peace. But they will come to know.
