045.001

PICKTHAL: Ha. Mim.

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

045.002

PICKTHAL: The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the Mighty, the
Wise.

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

045.003

PICKTHAL: Lo! in the heavens and the earth are portents for believers.

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

045.004

PICKTHAL: And in your creation, and all the beasts that He scattereth in
the earth, are portents for a folk whose faith is sure.

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

045.005

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.006

PICKTHAL: 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?

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

045.007

PICKTHAL: Woe unto each sinful liar,

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

045.008

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.009

PICKTHAL: And when he knoweth aught of Our revelations he maketh it a jest.
For such there is a shameful doom.

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

045.010

PICKTHAL: 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 doom.

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

045.011

PICKTHAL: This is guidance. And those who disbelieve the revelations of
their Lord, for them there is a painful doom of wrath.

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

045.012

PICKTHAL: 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;

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

045.013

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.014

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.015

PICKTHAL: Whoso doeth right, it is for his soul, and whoso doeth wrong, it
is against it. And afterward unto your Lord ye will be brought back.

it is against himself; then you shall be brought back to your-- Lord.

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

045.016

PICKTHAL: 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;

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

045.017

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.018

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.019

PICKTHAL: 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).

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

045.020

PICKTHAL: This is clear indication for mankind, and a guidance and a mercy
for a folk whose faith is sure.

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

045.021

PICKTHAL: 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!


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

045.022

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.023

PICKTHAL: 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?

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

045.024

PICKTHAL: 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 guess.

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

045.025

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.026

PICKTHAL: 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 not.

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

045.027

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.028

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.029

PICKTHAL: This Our Book pronounceth against you with truth. Lo! We have
caused (all) that ye did to be recorded.

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

045.030

PICKTHAL: Then, as for those who believed and did good works, their Lord
will bring them in unto His mercy. That is the evident triumph.

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

045.031

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.032

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.033

PICKTHAL: And the evils of what they did will appear unto them, and that
which they used to deride will befall them.

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

045.034

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.035

PICKTHAL: 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.

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

045.036

PICKTHAL: Then praise be to Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the
earth, the Lord of the Worlds.

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

045.037

PICKTHAL: And unto Him (alone) belongeth Majesty in the heavens and the
earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
