041 HaMim

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. Ha Mim!

 2. A revelation from the Beneficent, the Merciful God:

 3. A Book of which the verses are made plain, an Arabic 
 Quran for a people who know:

 4. A herald of good news and a warner, but most of them turn 
 aside so they hear not.

 5. And they say: Our hearts are under coverings from that to 
 which you call us, and there is a heaviness in our ears, and 
 a veil hangs between us and you, so work, we too are 

 6. Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me 
 that your God is one God, therefore follow the right way to 
 Him and ask His forgiveness; and woe to the polytheists;

 7. (To) those who do not give poor-rate and they are 
 unbelievers in the hereafter.

 8. (As for) those who believe and do good, they shall surely 
 have a reward never to be cut off.

 9. Say: What! do you indeed disbelieve in Him Who created 
 the earth in two periods, and do you set up equals with Him? 
 That is the Lord of the Worlds.

 10. And He made in it mountains above its surface, and He 
 blessed therein and made therein its foods, in four periods: 
 alike for the seekers.

 11. Then He directed Himself to the heaven and it is a 
 vapor, so He said to it and to the earth: Come both, 
 willingly or unwillingly. They both said: We come willingly.

 12. So He ordained them seven heavens in two periods, and 
 revealed in every heaven its affair; and We adorned the 
 lower heaven with brilliant stars and (made it) to guard; 
 that is the decree of the Mighty, the Knowing.

 13. But if they turn aside, then say: I have warned you of a 
 scourge like the scourge of Ad and Samood.

 14. When their apostles came to them from before them and 
 from behind them, saying, Serve nothing but Allah, they 
 said: If our Lord had pleased He would certainly have sent 
 down angels, so we are surely unbelievers in that with which 
 you are sent.

 15. Then as to Ad, they were unjustly proud in the land, and 
 they said: Who is mightier in strength than we? Did they not 
 see that Allah Who created them was mightier than they in 
 strength, and they denied Our communications?

 16. So We sent on them a furious wind in unlucky days, that 
 We may make them taste the chastisement of abasement in this 
 world's life; and certainly the chastisement of the 
 hereafter is much more abasing, and they shall not be 

 17. And as to Samood, We showed them the right way, but they 
 chose error above guidance, so there overtook them the 
 scourge of an abasing chastisement for what they earned.

 18. And We delivered those who believed and guarded (against 

 19. And on the day that the enemies of Allah shall be 
 brought together to the fire, then they shall be formed into 

 20. Until when they come to it, their ears and their eyes 
 and their skins shall bear witness against them as to what 
 they did.

 21. And they shall say to their skins: Why have you borne 
 witness against us? They shall say: Allah Who makes 
 everything speak has made us speak, and He created you at 
 first, and to Him you shall be brought back.

 22. And you did not veil yourselves lest your ears and your 
 eyes and your skins should bear witness against you, but you 
 thought that Allah did not know most of what you did.

 23. And that was your (evil) thought which you entertained 
 about your Lord that has tumbled you down into perdition, so 
 are you become of the lost ones.

 24. Then if they will endure, still the fire is their abode, 
 and if they ask for goodwill, then are they not of those who 
 shall be granted goodwill.

 25. And We have appointed for them comrades so they have 
 made fair-seeming to them what is before them and what is 
 behind them, and the word proved true against them-- among the 
 nations of the jinn and the men that have passed away before 
 them-- that they shall surely be losers.

 26. And those who disbelieve say: Do not listen to this 
 Quran and make noise therein, perhaps you may overcome.

 27. Therefore We will most certainly make those who 
 disbelieve taste a severe punishment, and We will most 
 certainly reward them for the evil deeds they used to do.

 28. That is the reward of the enemies of Allah-- the fire; for 
 them therein shall be the house of long abiding; a reward 
 for their denying Our communications.

 29. And those who disbelieve will say: Our Lord! show us 
 those who led us astray from among the jinn and the men that 
 we may trample them under our feet so that they may be of 
 the lowest.

 30. (As for) those who say: Our Lord is Allah, then continue 
 in the right way, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear 
 not, nor be grieved, and receive good news of the garden 
 which you were promised.

 31. We are your guardians in this world's life and in the 
 hereafter, and you shall have therein what your souls desire 
 and you shall have therein what you ask for:

 32. A provision from the Forgiving, the Merciful.

 33. And who speaks better than he who calls to Allah while 
 he himself does good, and says: I am surely of those who 

 34. And not alike are the good and the evil. Repel (evil) 
 with what is best, when lo! he between whom and you was 
 enmity would be as if he were a warm friend.

 35. And none are made to receive it but those who are 
 patient, and none are made to receive it but those who have 
 a mighty good fortune.

 36. And if an interference of the Shaitan should cause you 
 mischief, seek refuge in Allah; surely He is the Hearing, 
 the Knowing.

 37. And among His signs are the night and the day and the 
 sun and the moon; do not make obeisance to the sun nor to 
 the moon; and make obeisance to Allah Who created them, if 
 Him it is that you serve.

 38. But if they are proud, yet those with your Lord glorify 
 Him during the night and the day, and they are not tired.

 39. And among His signs is this, that you see the earth 
 still, but when We send down on it the water, it stirs and 
 swells: most surely He Who gives it life is the Giver of 
 life to the dead; surely He has power over all things.

 40. Surely they who deviate from the right way concerning 
 Our communications are not hidden from Us. What! is he then 
 who is cast into the fire better, or he who comes safe on 
 the day of resurrection? Do what you like, surely He sees 
 what you do.

 41. Surely those who disbelieve in the reminder when it 
 comes to them, and most surely it is a Mighty Book:

 42. Falsehood shall not come to it from before it nor from 
 behind it; a revelation from the Wise, the Praised One.

 43. Naught is said to you but what was said indeed to the 
 apostles before you; surely your Lord is the Lord of 
 forgiveness and the Lord of painful retribution.

 44. And if We had made it a Quran in a foreign tongue, they 
 would certainly have said: Why have not its communications 
 been made clear? What! a foreign (tongue) and an Arabian! 
 Say: It is to those who believe a guidance and a healing; 
 and (as for) those who do not believe, there is a heaviness 
 in their ears and it is obscure to them; these shall be 
 called to from a far-off place.

 45. And certainly We gave the Book to Musa, but it has been 
 differed about, and had not a word already gone forth from 
 your Lord, judgment would certainly have been given between 
 them; and most surely they are in a disquieting doubt about 

 46. Whoever does good, it is for his own soul, and whoever 
 does evil, it is against it; and your Lord is not in the 
 least unjust to the servants.

 47. To Him is referred the knowledge of the hour, and there 
 come not forth any of the fruits from their coverings, nor 
 does a female bear, nor does she give birth, but with His 
 knowledge; and on the day when He shall call out to them, 
 Where are (those whom you called) My associates? They shall 
 say: We declare to Thee, none of us is a witness.

 48. And away from them shall go what they called upon 
 before, and they shall know for certain that there is no 
 escape for them.

 49. Man is never tired of praying for good, and if evil 
 touch him, then he is despairing, hopeless.

 50. And if We make him taste mercy from Us after distress 
 that has touched him, he would most certainly say: This is 
 of me, and I do not think the hour will come to pass, and if 
 I am sent back to my Lord, I shall have with Him sure good; 
 but We will most certainly inform those who disbelieved of 
 what they did, and We will most certainly make them taste of 
 hard chastisement.

 51. And when We show favor to man, he turns aside and 
 withdraws himself; and when evil touches him, he makes 
 lengthy supplications.

 52. Say: Tell me if it is from Allah; then you disbelieve in 
 it, who is in greater error than he who is in a prolonged 

 53. We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and in 
 their own souls, until it will become quite clear to them 
 that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your 
 Lord that He is a witness over all things?

 54. Now surely they are in doubt as to the meeting of their 
 Lord; now surely He encompasses all things.
