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

PICKTHAL: All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifieth Allah; and He
is the Mighty, the Wise.

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

057.002

PICKTHAL: His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth; He
quickeneth and He giveth death; and He is Able to do all things.

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

057.003

PICKTHAL: He is the First and the Last, and the Outward and the Inward; and
He is Knower of all things.

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

057.004

PICKTHAL: He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days; then
He mounted the Throne. He knoweth all that entereth the earth and all that
emergeth therefrom and all that cometh down from the sky and all that
ascendeth therein; and He is with you wheresoever ye may be. And Allah is
Seer of what ye do.

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

057.005

PICKTHAL: His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and unto
Allah (all) things are brought back.

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

057.006

PICKTHAL: He causeth the night to pass into the day, and He causeth the day
to pass into the night, and He is knower of all that is in the breasts.

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

057.007

PICKTHAL: Believe in Allah and His messenger, and spend of that whereof He
hath made you trustees; and such of you as believe and spend (aright),
theirs will be a great reward.

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

057.008

PICKTHAL: What aileth you that ye believe not in Allah, when the messenger
calleth you to believe in your Lord, and He hath already made a covenant
with you, if ye are believers?

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

057.009

PICKTHAL: He it is Who sendeth down clear revelations unto His slave, that
He may bring you forth from darkness unto light; and lo! for you, Allah is
Full of Pity, Merciful.

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

057.010

PICKTHAL: And what aileth you that ye spend not in the way of Allah when
unto Allah belongeth the inheritance of the heavens and the earth? Those
who spent and fought before the victory are not upon a level (with the rest
of you). Such are greater in rank than those who spent and fought
afterwards. Unto each hath Allah promised good. And Allah is Informed of
what ye do.

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

057.011

PICKTHAL: Who is he that will lend unto Allah a goodly loan, that He may
double it for him and his may be a rich reward?

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

057.012

PICKTHAL: On the day when thou (Muhammad) wilt see the believers, men and
women, their light shining forth before them and on their right hands, (and
wilt hear it said unto them): Glad news for you this day: Gardens
underneath which rivers flow, wherein ye are immortal. That is the supreme
triumph.

SHAKIR: On that day you will see the faithful men and the faithful women--
their light running before them and on their right hand-- good news for you
today: gardens beneath which rivers flow, to abide therein, that is the
grand achievement.

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

057.013

PICKTHAL: On the day when the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women
will say unto those who believe: Look on us that we may borrow from your
light! it will be said: Go back and seek for light! Then there will
separate them a wall wherein is a gate, the inner side whereof containeth
mercy, while the outer side thereof is toward the doom.

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

057.014

PICKTHAL: They will cry unto them (saying): Were we not with you? They will
say: Yea, verily; but ye tempted one another, and hesitated, and doubted,
and vain desires beguiled you till the ordinance of Allah came to pass; and
the deceiver deceived you concerning Allah;

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

057.015

PICKTHAL: So this day no ransom can be taken from you nor from those who
disbelieved. Your home is the Fire; that is your patron, and a hapless
journey's end.

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

057.016

PICKTHAL: Is not the time ripe for the hearts of those who believe to
submit to Allah's reminder and to the truth which is revealed, that they
become not as those who received the scripture of old but the term was
prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened, and many of them are
evil-livers.

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

057.017

PICKTHAL: Know that Allah quickeneth the earth after its death. We have
made clear Our revelations for you, that haply ye may understand.

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

057.018

PICKTHAL: Lo! those who give alms, both men and women, and lend unto Allah
a goodly loan, it will be doubled for them, and theirs will be a rich
reward.

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

057.019

PICKTHAL: And those who believe in Allah and His messengers, they are the
loyal, and the martyrs are with their Lord; they have their reward and
their light; while as for those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations,
they are owners of hell-fire.

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

057.020

PICKTHAL: Know that the life of the world is only play, and idle talk, and
pageantry, and boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and
children; as the likeness of vegetation after rain, whereof the growth is
pleasing to the husbandman, but afterward it drieth up and thou seest it
turning yellow, then it becometh straw. And in the Hereafter there is
grievous punishment, and (also) forgiveness from Allah and His good
pleasure, whereas the life of the world is but matter of illusion.

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

057.021

PICKTHAL: Race one with another for forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden
whereof the breadth is as the breadth of the heavens and the earth, which
is in store for those who believe in Allah and His messengers. Such is the
bounty of Allah, which He bestoweth upon whom He will, and Allah is of
Infinite Bounty.

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

057.022

PICKTHAL: Naught of disaster befalleth in the earth or in yourselves but it
is in a Book before we bring it into being - Lo! that is easy for Allah -

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

057.023

PICKTHAL: That ye grieve not for the sake of that which hath escaped you,
nor yet exult because of that which hath been given. Allah loveth not all
prideful boasters,

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

057.024

PICKTHAL: Who hoard and who enjoin upon the people avarice. And whosoever
turneth away, still Allah is the Absolute, the Owner of Praise.

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

057.025

PICKTHAL: We verily sent Our messengers with clear proofs, and revealed
with them the Scripture and the Balance, that mankind may observe right
measure; and He revealed iron, wherein is mighty power and (many) uses for
mankind, and that Allah may know him who helpeth Him and His messengers,
though unseen. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty.

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

057.026

PICKTHAL: And We verily sent Noah and Abraham and placed the prophethood
and the scripture among their seed, and among them there is he who goeth
right, but many of them are evil-livers.

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

057.027

PICKTHAL: Then We caused Our messengers to follow in their footsteps; and
We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow, and gave him the Gospel, and
placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. But
monasticism they invented - We ordained it not for them - only seeking
Allah's pleasure, and they observed it not with right observance. So We
give those of them who believe their reward, but many of them are
evil-livers.

monkery, they innovated it-- We did not prescribe it to them-- only to seek
Allah's pleasure, but they did not observe it with its due observance; so
We gave to those of them who believed their reward, and most of them are
transgressors.

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

057.028

PICKTHAL: O ye who believe! Be mindful of your duty to Allah and put faith
in His messenger. He will give you twofold of His mercy and will appoint
for you a light wherein ye shall walk, and will forgive you. Allah is
Forgiving, Merciful;

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

057.029

PICKTHAL: That the People of the Scripture may know that they control
naught of the bounty of Allah, but that the bounty is in Allah's hand to
give to whom He will. And Allah is of Infinite Bounty.
