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

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

035.001

PICKTHAL: Praise be to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who
appointeth the angels messengers having wings two, three and four. He
multiplieth in creation what He will. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

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

035.002

PICKTHAL: That which Allah openeth unto mankind of mercy none can withhold
it; and that which He withholdeth none can release thereafter. He is the
Mighty, the Wise.

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

035.003

PICKTHAL: O mankind! Remember Allah's grace toward you! Is there any
creator other than Allah who provideth for you from the sky and the earth?
There is no Allah save Him. Whither then are ye turned?

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

035.004

PICKTHAL: And if they deny thee, (O Muhammad), messengers (of Allah) were
denied before thee. Unto Allah all things are brought back.

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

035.005

PICKTHAL: O mankind! Lo! the promise of Allah is true. So let not the life
of the world beguile you, and let not the (avowed) beguiler beguile you
with regard to Allah.

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

035.006

PICKTHAL: Lo! the devil is an enemy for you, so treat him as an enemy. He
only summoneth his faction to be owners of the flaming Fire.

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

035.007

PICKTHAL: Those who disbelieve, theirs will be an awful doom; and those who
believe and do good works, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward.

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

035.008

PICKTHAL: Is he, the evil of whose deeds is made fairseeming unto him so
that he deemeth it good, (other than Satan's dupe)? Allah verily sendeth
whom He will astray, and guideth whom He will; so let not thy soul expire
in sighings for them. Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do!

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

035.009

PICKTHAL: And Allah it is Who sendeth the winds and they raise a cloud;
then We lead it unto a dead land and revive therewith the earth after its
death. Such is the Resurrection.

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

035.010

PICKTHAL: Whoso desireth power (should know that) all power belongeth to
Allah. Unto Him good words ascend, and the pious deed doth He exalt; but
those who plot iniquities, theirs will be an awful doom; and the plotting
of such (folk) will come to naught.

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

035.011

PICKTHAL: Allah created you from dust, then from a little fluid, then He
made you pairs (the male and female). No female beareth or bringeth forth
save with His knowledge. And no-one groweth old who groweth old, nor is
aught lessened of his life, but it is recorded in a Book, Lo! that is easy
for Allah.

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

035.012

PICKTHAL: And the two seas are not alike: this, fresh, sweet, good to
drink, this (other) bitter, salt. And from them both ye eat fresh meat and
derive the ornament that ye wear. And thou seest the ship cleaving them
with its prow that ye may seek of His bounty, and that haply ye may give
thanks.

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

035.013

PICKTHAL: He maketh the night to pass into the day and He maketh the day to
pass into the night. He hath subdued the sun and moon to service. Each
runneth unto an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord; His is the
Sovereignty; and those unto whom ye pray instead of Him own not so much as
the white spot on a date-stone.

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

035.014

PICKTHAL: If ye pray unto them they hear not your prayer, and if they heard
they could not grant it you. On the Day of Resurrection they will disown
association with you. None can inform you like Him Who is Aware.

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

035.015

PICKTHAL: O mankind! Ye are the poor in your relation to Allah. And Allah!
He is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.

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

035.016

PICKTHAL: If He will, He can be rid of you and bring (instead of you) some
new creation.

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

035.017

PICKTHAL: That is not a hard thing for Allah.

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

035.018

PICKTHAL: And no burdened soul can bear another's burden, and if one heavy
laden crieth for (help with) his load, naught of it will be lifted even
though he (unto whom he crieth) be of kin. Thou warnest only those who fear
their Lord in secret, and have established worship. He who groweth (in
goodness), groweth only for himself, (he cannot by his merit redeem
others). Unto Allah is the journeying.

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

035.019

PICKTHAL: The blind man is not equal with the seer;

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

035.020

PICKTHAL: Nor is darkness (tantamount to) light;

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

035.021

PICKTHAL: Nor is the shadow equal with the sun's full heat;

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

035.022

PICKTHAL: Nor are the living equal with the dead. Lo! Allah maketh whom He
will to hear. Thou canst not reach those who are in the graves.

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

035.023

PICKTHAL: Thou art but a warner.

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

035.024

PICKTHAL: Lo! We have sent thee with the Truth, a bearer of glad tidings
and a warner; and there is not a nation but a warner hath passed among
them.

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

035.025

PICKTHAL: And if they deny thee, those before them also denied. Their
messengers came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), and
with the Psalms and the Scripture giving light.

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

035.026

PICKTHAL: Then seized I those who disbelieved, and how intense was My
abhorrence!

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

035.027

PICKTHAL: Hast thou not seen that Allah causeth water to fall from the sky,
and We produce therewith fruit of divers hues; and among the hills are
streaks white and red, of divers hues, and (others) raven-black;

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

035.028

PICKTHAL: And of men and beasts and cattle, in like manner, divers hues?
The erudite among His bondmen fear Allah alone. Lo! Allah is Mighty,
Forgiving.

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

035.029

PICKTHAL: Lo! those who read the Scripture of Allah, and establish worship,
and spend of that which We have bestowed on them secretly and openly, they
look forward to imperishable gain,

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

035.030

PICKTHAL: That He will pay them their wages and increase them of His grace.
Lo! He is Forgiving, Responsive.

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

035.031

PICKTHAL: As for that which We inspire in thee of the Scripture, it is the
Truth confirming that which was (revealed) before it. Lo! Allah is indeed
Observer, Seer of His slaves.

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

035.032

PICKTHAL: Then We gave the Scripture as inheritance unto those whom We
elected of Our bondmen. But of them are some who wrong themselves and of
them are some who are lukewarm, and of them are some who outstrip (others)
through good deeds, by Allah's leave. That is the great favour!

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

035.033

PICKTHAL: Gardens of Eden! They enter them wearing armlets of gold and
pearl and their raiment therein is silk.

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

035.034

PICKTHAL: And they say: Praise be to Allah Who hath put grief away from us.
Lo! Our Lord is Forgiving, Bountiful,

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

035.035

PICKTHAL: Who, of His grace, hath installed us in the mansion of eternity,
where toil toucheth us not nor can weariness affect us.

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

035.036

PICKTHAL: But as for those who disbelieve, for them is fire of hell; it
taketh not complete effect upon them so that they can die, nor is its
torment lightened for them. Thus We punish every ingrate.

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

035.037

PICKTHAL: And they cry for help there, (saying): Our Lord! Release us; we
will do right, not (the wrong) that we used to do. Did not We grant you a
life long enough for him who reflected to reflect therein? And the warner
came unto you. Now taste (the flavour of your deeds), for evil-doers have
no helper.

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

035.038

PICKTHAL: Lo! Allah is the Knower of the Unseen of the heavens and the
earth. Lo! He is Aware of the secret of (men's) breasts.

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

035.039

PICKTHAL: He it is Who hath made you regents in the earth; so he who
disbelieveth, his disbelief be on his own head. Their disbelief increaseth
for the disbelievers, in their Lord's sight, naught save abhorrence. Their
disbelief increaseth for the disbelievers naught save loss.

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

035.040

PICKTHAL: Say: Have ye seen your partner-gods to whom ye pray beside Allah?
Show me what they created of the earth! Or have they any portion in the
heavens? Or have We given them a scripture so they act on clear proof
therefrom? Nay, the evil-doers promise one another only to deceive.

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

035.041

PICKTHAL: Lo! Allah graspeth the heavens and the earth that they deviate
not, and if they were to deviate there is not one that could grasp them
after Him. Lo! He is ever Clement, Forgiving.

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

035.042

PICKTHAL: And they swore by Allah, their most binding oath, that if a
warner came unto them they would be more tractable than any of the nations;
yet, when a warner came unto them it aroused in them naught save
repugnance,

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

035.043

PICKTHAL: (Shown in their) behaving arrogantly in the land and plotting
evil; and the evil plot encloseth but the men who make it. Then, can they
expect aught save the treatment of the folk of old? Thou wilt not find for
Allah's way of treatment any substitute, nor wilt thou find for Allah's way
of treatment aught of power to change.

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

035.044

PICKTHAL: Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the
consequence for those who were before them, and they were mightier than
these in power? Allah is not such that aught in the heavens or in the earth
escapeth Him. Lo! He is the Wise, the Mighty.

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

035.045

PICKTHAL: If Allah took mankind to task by that which they deserve, He
would not leave a living creature on the surface of the earth; but He
reprieveth them unto an appointed term, and when their term cometh - then
verily (they will know that) Allah is ever Seer of His slaves.
