abrahem-sourat ibrahim

In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.

1.   Alif, Lam, Ra. A Scripture that We re-vealed to you, that you may bring humani-ty from darkness to light—with the per-mission of their Lord—to the path of the Almighty, the Praiseworthy.

2.   God—to whom belongs what is in the heavens and the earth. And woe to the disbelievers from a severe torment.

3.   Those who prefer the present life to the Hereafter, and repel from the path of God,

and seek to make it crooked—these are far astray.

4.   We never sent any messenger except in the language of his people, to make things clear for them. God leads astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

5.   We sent Moses with Our signs: “Bring your people out of darkness into light, and remind them of the Days of God.” In that are signs for every patient and thankful person.”

6.   Moses said to his people, “Remember God’s blessings upon you, as He delivered you from the people of Pharaoh, who in-flicted on you terrible suffering, slaughter-ing your sons while sparing your daugh-ters. In that there was a serious trial from your Lord.”

7.   And when your Lord proclaimed: “If you give thanks, I will grant you increase; but if you are ungrateful, My punishment is severe.”

8.   And Moses said, “Even if you are un-grateful, together with everyone on earth—God is in no need, Worthy of Praise.”

9.   Has not the story reached you, of those before you, the people of Noah, and Aad, and Thamood—and those after them? None knows them except God. Their mes-sengers came to them with the clear proofs, but they tried to silence them, and said, “We reject what you are sent with, and we are in serious doubt regarding what you are calling us to.”

10.  Their messengers said, “Is there any doubt about God, Maker of the heavens and the earth? He calls you to forgive you your sins, and to defer you until a stated term.” They said, “You are only humans like us; you want to turn us away from what our ancestors worshiped; so bring us a clear proof.”

11.  Their messengers said to them, “We are only humans like you, but God favors whomever He wills from among His serv-ants. We cannot possibly show you any proof, except by leave of God. In God let the faithful put their trust.”

12.  “And why should we not trust in God, when He has guided us in our ways? We will persevere in the face of your persecu-tion. And upon God the reliant should rely.”

13.  Those who disbelieved said to their messengers, “We will expel you from our land, unless you return to our religion.” And their Lord inspired them: “We will destroy the wrongdoers.

14.  And We will settle you in the land after them. That is for him who fears My Maj-esty, and fears My threats.”

15.  And they prayed for victory, and every stubborn tyrant came to disappointment.

16.  Beyond him lies Hell. He will be given to drink putrid water.

17.  He will guzzle it, but he will not swal-low it. Death will come at him from every direction, but he will not die. And beyond this is relentless suffering.

18.  The likeness of those who disbelieve in their Lord: their works are like ashes, in a fierce wind, on a stormy day. They have no control over anything they have earned. That is the utmost misguidance.

19.  Do you not see that God created the heavens and the earth with truth? If He wills, He can do away with you, and bring a new creation.

20.  And that is not difficult for God.

21.  They will emerge before God, altogeth-er. The weak will say to those who were proud, “We were your followers, can you protect us at all against God’s punish-ment?” They will say, “Had God guided us, we would have guided you. It is the same for us, whether we mourn, or are patient; there is no asylum for us.”

22.  And Satan will say, when the issue is settled, “God has promised you the prom-ise of truth, and I promised you, but I failed you. I had no authority over you, except that I called you, and you answered me. So do not blame me, but blame your-selves. I cannot come to your aid, nor can you come to my aid. I reject your associat-ing with me in the past. The wrongdoers will have a torment most painful.”

23.  But those who believed and did good deeds will be admitted into gardens be-neath which rivers flow, to remain therein forever, by leave of their Lord. Their greet-ing therein will be: “Peace.”

24.  Do you not see how God presents a parable? A good word is like a good tree—

its root is firm, and its branches are in the sky.

25.  It yields its fruits every season by the will of its Lord. God presents the parables to the people, so that they may reflect.

26.  And the parable of a bad word is that of a bad tree—it is uprooted from the ground; it has no stability.

27.  God gives firmness to those who be-lieve, with the firm word, in this life, and in the Hereafter. And God leads the wick-ed astray. God does whatever He wills.

28.  Have you not seen those who ex-changed the blessing of God with blas-phemy, and landed their people into the house of perdition?

29.  Hell—they will roast in it. What a mis-erable settlement.

30.  And they set up rivals to God, in order to lead away from His path. Say, “Enjoy yourselves; your destination is the Fire.”

31.  Tell My servants who have believed to perform the prayers, and to give from what We have given them, secretly and publicly, before a Day comes in which there is neither trading nor friendship.

32.  God is He Who created the heavens and the earth, and sends down water from the sky, and with it produces fruits for your sustenance. And He committed the ships to your service, sailing through the sea by His command, and He committed the rivers to your service.

33.  And He committed the sun and the moon to your service, both continuously pursuing their courses, and He committed the night and the day to your service.

34.  And He has given you something of all what you asked. And if you were to count God’s blessings, you would not be able to enumerate them. The human being is un-fair and ungrateful.

35.  Recall that Abraham said, “O my Lord, make this land peaceful, and keep me and my sons from worshiping idols.”

36.  “My Lord, they have led many people astray. Whoever follows me belongs with me; and whoever disobeys me—You are Forgiving and Merciful.

37.  “Our Lord, I have settled some of my offspring in a valley of no vegetation, by Your Sacred House, our Lord, so that they may perform the prayers. So make the hearts of some people incline towards them, and provide them with fruits, that they may be thankful.”

38.  “Our Lord, You know what we conceal and what we reveal. And nothing is hid-den from God, on earth, or in the heaven.”

39.  “Praise be to God, Who has given me, in my old age, Ishmael and Isaac. My Lord is the Hearer of Prayers.”

40.  “My Lord, make me one who performs the prayer, and from my offspring. Our Lord, accept my supplication.”

41.  “Our Lord, forgive me, and my parents, and the believers, on the Day the Reckon-ing takes place.”

42.  Do not ever think that God is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only defers them until a Day when the sights stare.

43.  Their necks outstretched, their heads upraised, their gaze unblinking, their hearts void.

44.  And warn mankind of the Day when the punishment will come upon them, and the wicked will say, “Our Lord, defer us for a little while, and we will answer Your call and follow the messengers.” Did you not swear before that there will be no passing away for you?

45.  And you inhabited the homes of those who wronged themselves, and it became clear to you how We dealt with them, and We cited for you the examples.

46.  They planned their plans, but their plans are known to God, even if their plans can eliminate mountains.

47.  Do not ever think that God will break His promise to His messengers. God is Strong, Able to Avenge.

48.  On the Day when the earth is changed into another earth, and the heavens, and they will emerge before God, the One, the Irresistible.

49.  On that Day, you will see the sinners bound together in chains.

50.  Their garments made of tar, and the Fire covering their faces.

51.  That God may repay each soul accord-ing to what it has earned. God is Quick in reckoning.

52. This is a proclamation for mankind, that they may be warned thereby, and know that He is One God, and that people of understanding may remember.

THUNDER (ar-Ra'd)

In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.

1.   Alif, Lam, Meem, Ra. These are the signs of the Scripture. What is revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, but most people do not believe.

2.   God is He who raised the heavens with-out pillars that you can see, and then set-tled on the Throne. And He regulated the sun and the moon, each running for a specified period. He manages all affairs, and He explains the signs, that you may be certain of the meeting with your Lord.

3.   And it is He who spread the earth, and placed on it mountains and rivers. Of eve-ry kind of fruit He made a pair of two. He causes the night to overlap the day. In that are signs for people who reflect.

4.   On earth are adjacent terrains, and gar-dens of vines, and crops, and date-palms, from the same root or from distinct roots, irrigated with the same water. We make some taste better than others. In that are proofs for people who reason.

5.   Should you wonder—the real wonder is their saying: “When we have become dust, will we be in a new creation?” Those are they who defied their Lord. Those are they who will have yokes around their necks. Those are the inhabitants of the Fire, where they will remain forever.

6.   And they urge you to hasten evil before good, though examples have passed away before them. Your Lord is full of for-

giveness towards the people for their wrongdoings, yet your Lord is severe in retribution.

7.  Those who disbelieve say, “Why was a miracle not sent down to him from his Lord?” You are only a warner, and to eve-ry community is a guide.

8.  God knows what every female bears, and every increase and decrease of the wombs. With Him, everything is by meas-ure.

9.  The Knower of the Invisible and the Visible, the Grand, the Supreme.

10.  It is the same; whether one of you con-ceals his speech, or declares it; whether he goes into hiding by night, or goes out by day.

11.  He has a succession, before him and behind him, protecting him by God’s command. God does not change the con-dition of a people until they change what is within themselves. And if God wills any hardship for a people, there is no turning it back, and apart from Him they have no protector.

12.  It is He who shows you the lightening, causing fear and hope. And He produces the heavy clouds.

13.  The thunder praises His glory, and so do the angels, in awe of Him. And He sends the thunderbolts, striking with them whomever He wills. Yet they argue about God, while He is Tremendous in might.

14.  To Him belongs the call to truth. Those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with anything—except as someone who stretches his hands towards water, so that it may reach his mouth, but it does not reach it. The prayers of the un-believers are only in vain.

15.  To God prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwill-ingly, as do their shadows, in the morning and in the evening.

16.  Say, “Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?” Say, “God.” Say, “Have you taken besides Him protectors, who have no power to profit or harm even themselves?” Say, “Are the blind and the seeing equal? Or are darkness and light equal? Or have they assigned to God asso-ciates, who created the likes of His crea-tion, so that the creations seemed to them alike? Say, “God is the Creator of all things, and He is The One, the Irresisti-ble.”

17.  He sends down water from the sky, and riverbeds flow according to their capacity. The current carries swelling froth. And from what they heat in fire of ornaments or utensils comes a similar froth. Thus God exemplifies truth and falsehood. As for the froth, it is swept away, but what benefits the people remains in the ground. Thus God presents the analogies.

18.  For those who respond to their Lord is the best. But as for those who do not re-spond to Him, even if they possessed eve-rything on earth, and twice as much, they could not redeem themselves with it. Those will have the worst reckoning; and

their home is Hell—a miserable destina-tion.

19.  Is he who knows that what was revealed to your from your Lord is the truth, like he who is blind? Only those who reason will remember.

20.  Those who fulfill the promise to God, and do not violate the agreement.

21.  And those who join what God has commanded to be joined, and fear their Lord, and dread the dire reckoning.

22.  And those who patiently seek the pres-ence of their Lord, and pray regularly, and spend from Our provisions to them, se-cretly and openly, and repel evil with good. These will have the Ultimate Home.

23.  Everlasting Gardens, which they will enter, along with the righteous among their parents, and their spouses, and their descendants. And the angels will enter upon them from every gate.

24.  “Peace be upon you, because you en-dured patiently. How excellent is the Final Home.”

25.  As for those who violate the promise to God, after pledging to keep it, and sever what God has commanded to be joined, and spread corruption on earth—these, the curse will be upon them, and they will have the Worst Home.

26.  God dispenses the provisions to whom-ever He wills, and restricts. And they de-light in the worldly life; yet the worldly life, compared to the Hereafter, is only enjoyment.
27.  Those who disbelieve say, “If only a miracle was sent down to him from his Lord.” Say, “God leads astray whomever He wills, and He guides to Himself who-ever repents.”

28.  Those who believe, and whose hearts find comfort in the remembrance of God. Surely, it is in the remembrance of God that hearts find comfort.”

29.  For those who believe and do righteous deeds—for them is happiness and a beau-tiful return.

30.  Thus We have sent you among a com-munity before which other communities have passed away, that you may recite to them what We revealed to you. Yet they deny the Benevolent One. Say, “He is my Lord; there is no god but He; in Him I trust, and to Him is my repentance.”

31.  Even if there were a Quran, by which mountains could be set in motion, by which the earth could be shattered, or by which the dead could be made to speak. In fact, every decision rests with God. Did the believers not give up and realize that had God willed, He would have guided all humanity? Disasters will continue to strike those who disbelieve, because of their deeds, or they fall near their homes, until God’s promise comes true. God never breaks a promise.

32.  Messengers before you were ridiculed, but I granted the disbelievers respite, and then I seized them. What a punishment it was.

33.  Is He who is watchful over the deeds of every soul? Yet they ascribe associates to God. Say, “Name them. Or are you in-forming Him of something on earth He does not know, or is it a show of words?” In fact, the scheming of those who disbe-lieve is made to appear good to them, and they are averted from the path. Whomever God misguides has no guide.

34.  There is for them torment in the world-ly life, but the torment of the Hereafter is harsher. And they have no defender against God.

35.  The likeness of the Garden promised to the righteous: rivers flowing beneath it; its food is perpetual, and so is its shade. Such is the sequel for those who guard against evil, but the sequel of the disbelievers is the Fire.

36.  Those to whom We gave the Scripture rejoice in what was revealed to you, while some factions reject parts of it. Say, “I am commanded to worship God, and to never associate anything with Him. To Him I invite, and to Him is my return.”

37.  Thus We revealed it an Arabic code of law. Were you to follow their desires, after the knowledge that has come to you, you would have neither ally nor defender against God.

38.  We sent messengers before you, and We assigned for them wives and offspring. No messenger could bring a sign except with the permission of God. For every era is a scripture.

39.  God abolishes whatever He wills, and He affirms. With Him is the source of the Scripture.

40.  Whether We show you some of what We have promised them, or We cause you to die—your duty is to inform, and Ours is the reckoning.

41.  Do they not see how We deal with the earth, diminishing it at its edges? God judges; and nothing can hold back His judgment. And He is quick to settle ac-counts.

42.  Those before them planned, but the entire plan is up to God. He knows what every soul earns. Those who disbelieve will know to whom the Ultimate Home is.

43.  Those who disbelieve say, “You are not a messenger.” Say, “God is a sufficient witness between me and you, and whoever has knowledge of the Scripture.”
