045 TheKneeling

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

 1. Ha Mim.

 2. The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the 

 3. Most surely in the heavens and the earth there are signs 
 for the believers.

 4. And in your (own) creation and in what He spreads abroad 
 of animals there are signs for a people that are sure;

 5. And (in) the variation of the night and the day, and (in) 
 what Allah sends down of sustenance from the cloud, then 
 gives life thereby to the earth after its death, and (in) 
 the changing of the winds, there are signs for a people who 

 6. These are the communications of Allah which We recite to 
 you with truth; then in what announcement would they believe 
 after Allah and His communications?

 7. Woe to every sinful liar,

 8. Who hears the communications of Allah recited to him, 
 then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so 
 announce to him a painful punishment.

 9. And when he comes to know of any of Our communications, 
 he takes it for a jest; these it is that shall have abasing 

 10. Before them is hell, and there shall not avail them 
 aught of what they earned, nor those whom they took for 
 guardians besides Allah, and they shall have a grievous 

 11. This is guidance; and (as for) those who disbelieve in 
 the communications of their Lord, they shall have a painful 
 punishment on account of uncleanness.

 12. Allah is He Who made subservient to you the sea that the 
 ships may run therein by His command, and that you may seek 
 of His grace, and that you may give thanks.

 13. And He has made subservient to you whatsoever is in the 
 heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, all, from Himself; 
 most surely there are signs in this for a people who 

 14. Say to those who believe (that) they forgive those who 
 do not fear the days of Allah that He may reward a people 
 for what they earn.

 15. Whoever does good, it is for his own soul, and whoever 
 does evil, it is against himself; then you shall be brought 
 back to your-- Lord.

 16. And certainly We gave the Book and the wisdom and the 
 prophecy to the children of Israel, and We gave them of the 
 goodly things, and We made them excel the nations.

 17. And We gave them clear arguments in the affair, but they 
 did not differ until after knowledge had come to them out of 
 envy among themselves; surely your -Lord will judge between 
 them on the day of resurrection concerning that wherein they 

 18. Then We have made you follow a course in the affair, 
 therefore follow it, and do not follow the low desires of 
 those who do not know.

 19. Surely they shall not avail you in the least against 
 Allah; and surely the unjust are friends of each other, and 
 Allah is the guardian of those who guard (against evil).

 20. These are clear proofs for men, and a guidance and a 
 mercy for a people who are sure.

 21. Nay! do those who have wrought evil deeds think that We 
 will make them like those who believe and do good-- that their 
 life and their death shall be equal? Evil it is that they 

 22. And Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth 
 and that every soul may be rewarded for what it has earned 
 and they shall not be wronged.

 23. Have you then considered him who takes his low desire 
 for his god, and Allah has made him err having knowledge and 
 has set a seal upon his ear and his heart and put a covering 
 upon his eye. Who can then guide him after Allah? Will you 
 not then be mindful?

 24. And they say: There is nothing but our life in this 
 world; we live and die and nothing destroys us but time, and 
 they have no knowledge of that; they only conjecture.

 25. And when Our clear communications are recited to them, 
 their argument is no other than that they say: Bring our 
 fathers (back) if you are truthful.

 26. Say: Allah gives you life, then He makes you die, then 
 will He gather you to the day of resurrection wherein is no 
 doubt, but most people do not know.

 27. And Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; 
 and on the day when the hour shall come to pass, on that day 
 shall they perish who say false things.

 28. And you shall see every nation kneeling down; every 
 nation shall be called to its book: today you shall be 
 rewarded for what you did.

 29. This is Our book that speaks against you with justice; 
 surely We wrote what you did,

 30. Then as to those who believed and did good, their Lord 
 will make them enter into His mercy; that is the manifest 

 31. As to those who disbelieved: What! were not My 
 communications recited to you? But you were proud and you 
 were a guilty people.

 32. And when it was said, Surely the promise of Allah is 
 true and as for the hour, there is no doubt about it, you 
 said: We do not know what the hour is; we do not think (that 
 it will come to pass) save a passing thought, and we are not 
 at all sure.

 33. And the evil (consequences) of what they did shall 
 become manifest to them and that which they mocked shall 
 encompass them.

 34. And it shall be said: Today We forsake you as you 
 neglected the meeting of this day of yours and your abode is 
 the fire, and there are not for you any helpers:

 35. That is because you took the communications of Allah for 
 a jest and the life of this world deceived you. So on that 
 day they shall not be brought forth from it, nor shall they 
 be granted goodwill.

 36. Therefore to Allah is due (all) praise, the Lord of the 
 heavens and the Lord of the earth, the Lord of the worlds.

 37. And to Him belongs greatness in the heavens and the 
 earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
