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

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.001

PICKTHAL: Alif. Lam. Mim

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.002

PICKTHAL: The revelation of the Scripture whereof there is no doubt is from
the Lord of the Worlds.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.003

PICKTHAL: Or say they: He hath invented it? Nay, but it is the Truth from
thy Lord, that thou mayst warn a folk to whom no warner came before thee,
that haply they may walk aright.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.004

PICKTHAL: Allah it is Who created the heavens and the earth, and that which
is between them, in six Days. Then He mounted the Throne. Ye have not,
beside Him, a protecting friend or mediator. Will ye not then remember?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.005

PICKTHAL: He directeth the ordinance from the heaven unto the earth; then
it ascendeth unto Him in a Day, whereof the measure is a thousand years of
that ye reckon.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.006

PICKTHAL: Such is the Knower of the Invisible and the Visible, the Mighty,
the Merciful,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.007

PICKTHAL: Who made all things good which He created, and He began the
creation of man from clay;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.008

PICKTHAL: Then He made his seed from a draught of despised fluid;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.009

PICKTHAL: Then He fashioned him and breathed into him of His Spirit; and
appointed for you hearing and sight and hearts. Small thanks give ye!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.010

PICKTHAL: And they say: When we are lost in the earth, how can we then be
re-created? Nay but they are disbelievers in the meeting with their Lord.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.011

PICKTHAL: Say: The angel of death, who hath charge concerning you, will
gather you, and afterward unto your Lord ye will be returned.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.012

PICKTHAL: Couldst thou but see when the guilty hang their heads before
their Lord, (and say): Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so send us
back; we will do right, now we are sure.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.013

PICKTHAL: And if We had so willed, We could have given every soul its
guidance, but the word from Me concerning evildoers took effect: that I
will fill hell with the jinn and mankind together.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.014

PICKTHAL: So taste (the evil of your deeds). Forasmuch as ye forgot the
meeting of this your day, lo! We forget you. Taste the doom of immortality
because of what ye used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.015

PICKTHAL: Only those believe in Our revelations who, when they are reminded
of them, fall down prostrate and hymn the praise of their Lord, and they
are not scornful,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.016

PICKTHAL: Who forsake their beds to cry unto their Lord in fear and hope,
and spend of that We have bestowed on them.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.017

PICKTHAL: No soul knoweth what is kept hid for them of joy, as a reward for
what they used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.018

PICKTHAL: Is he who is a believer like unto him who is an evil-liver? They
are not alike.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.019

PICKTHAL: But as for those who believe and do good works, for them are the
Gardens of Retreat - a welcome (in reward) for what they used to do.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.020

PICKTHAL: And as for those who do evil, their retreat is the Fire. Whenever
they desire to issue forth from thence, they are brought back thither. Unto
them it is said: Taste the torment of the Fire which ye used to deny.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.021

PICKTHAL: And verily We make them taste the lower punishment before the
greater, that haply they may return.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.022

PICKTHAL: And who doth greater wrong than he who is reminded of the
revelations of his Lord, then turneth from them. Lo! We shall requite the
guilty.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.023

PICKTHAL: We verily gave Moses the Scripture; so be not ye in doubt of his
receiving it; and We appointed it a guidance for the Children of Israel.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.024

PICKTHAL: And when they became steadfast and believed firmly in Our
revelations, We appointed from among them leaders who guided by Our
command.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.025

PICKTHAL: Lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection
concerning that wherein they used to differ.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.026

PICKTHAL: Is it not a guidance for them (to observe) how many generations
We destroyed before them, amid whose dwelling places they do walk? Lo!
therein verily are portents! Will they not then heed?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.027

PICKTHAL: Have they not seen how We lead the water to the barren land and
therewith bring forth crops whereof their cattle eat, and they themselves?
Will they not then see?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.028

PICKTHAL: And they say: When cometh this victory (of yours) if ye are
truthful?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.029

PICKTHAL: Say (unto them): On the day of the victory the faith of those who
disbelieve (and who then will believe) will not avail them, neither will
they be reprieved.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

032.030

PICKTHAL: So withdraw from them (O Muhammad), and await (the event). Lo!
they (also) are awaiting (it).
