[45.1] Ha. Mim.
[45.2] The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the
Mighty, the Wise.
[45.3] Lo! in the heavens and the earth are portents for
[45.4] And in your creation, and all the beasts that He
scattereth in the earth, are portents for a folk whose faith is
[45.5] And the difference of night and day and the provision
that Allah sendeth down from the sky and thereby quickeneth the
earth after her death, and the ordering of the winds, are
portents for a people who have sense.
[45.6] These are the portents of Allah which We recite unto thee
(Muhammad) with truth. Then in what fact, after Allah and His
portents, will they believe ?
[45.7] Woe unto each sinful liar,
[45.8] Who heareth the revelations of Allah recited unto him,
and then continueth in pride as though he heard them not. Give
him tidings of a painful doom.
[45.9] And when he knoweth aught of Our revelations he maketh it
a jest. For such there is a shameful doom.
[45.10] Beyond them there is hell, and that which they have
earned will naught avail them, nor those whom they have chosen
for protecting friends beside Allah. Theirs will be an awful
[45.11] This is guidance. And those who disbelieve the
revelations of their Lord, for them there is a painful doom of
[45.12] Allah it is Who hath made the sea of service unto you
that the ships may run thereon by His command, and that ye may
seek of His bounty, and that haply ye may be thankful;
[45.13] And hath made of service unto you whatsoever is in the
heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; it is all from Him. Lo!
herein verily are portents for a people who reflect.
[45.14] Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for
the days of Allah; in order that He may requite folk what they
used to earn.
[45.15] Whoso doeth right, it is for his soul, and whoso doeth
wrong, it is against it. And afterward unto your Lord ye will be
[45.16] And verily we gave the Children of Israel the Scripture
and the Command and the Prophethood, and provided them with good
things and favoured them above (all) peoples;
[45.17] And gave them plain commandments. And they differed not
until after the knowledge came unto them, through rivalry among
themselves. Lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of
Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ.
[45.18] And now have We set thee (O Muhammad) on a clear road of
(Our) commandment; so follow it, and follow not the whims of
those who know not.
[45.19] Lo! they can avail thee naught against Allah. And lo! as
for the wrong-doers, some of them are friends of others; and
Allah is the Friend of those who ward off (evil).
[45.20] This is clear indication for mankind, and a guidance and
a mercy for a folk whose faith is sure.
[45.21] Or do those who commit ill-deeds suppose that We shall
make them as those who believe and do good works, the same in
life and death ? Bad is their judgment!
[45.22] And Allah hath created the heavens and the earth with
truth, and that every soul may be repaid what it hath earned.
And they will not be wronged.
[45.23] Hast thou seen him who maketh his desire his god, and
Allah sendeth him astray purposely, and sealeth up his hearing
and his heart, and setteth on his sight a covering ? Then who
will lead him after Allah (hath condemned him) ? Will ye not
then heed ?
[45.24] And they say: There is naught but our life of the world;
we die and we live, and naught destroyeth us save time; when
they have no knowledge whatsoever of (all) that; they do but
[45.25] And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them
their only argument is that they say: Bring (back) our fathers.
then, if ye are truthful.
[45.26] Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Allah giveth life to you,
then causeth you to die, then gathereth you unto the Day of
Resurrection whereof there is no doubt. But most of mankind know
[45.27] And unto Allah belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens
and the earth; and on the day when the Hour riseth, on that day
those who follow falsehood will be lost.
[45.28] And thou wilt see each nation crouching, each nation
summoned to its record. (And it will be said unto them): This
day ye are requited what ye used to do.
[45.29] This Our Book pronounceth against you with truth. Lo! We
have caused (all) that ye did to be recorded.
[45.30] Then, as for those who believed and did good works,
their Lord will bring them in unto His mercy. That is the
[45.31] And as for those who disbelieved (it will be said unto
them): Were not Our revelations recited unto you ? But ye were
scornful and became a guilty folk.
[45.32] And when it was said: Lo! Allah's promise is the truth,
and there is no doubt of the Hour's coming, ye said: We know not
what the Hour is. We deem it naught but a conjecture, and we are
by no means convinced.
[45.33] And the evils of what they did will appear unto them,
and that which they used to deride will befall them.
[45.34] And it will be said: This day We forget you, even as ye
forgot the meeting of this your day; and your habitation is the
Fire, and there is none to help you.
[45.35] This, forasmuch as ye made the revelations of Allah a
jest, and the life of the world beguiled you. Therefor this day
they come not forth from thence, nor can they make amends.
[45.36] Then praise be to Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of
the earth, the Lord of the Worlds.
[45.37] And unto Him (alone) belongeth Majesty in the heavens
and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
