In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[22.1] O people! guard against (the punishment from) your Lord; surely
the violence of the hour is a grievous thing.
[22.2] On the day when
you shall see it, every woman giving suck shall quit in confusion what she suckled,
and every pregnant woman shall lay down her burden, and you shall see men intoxicated,
and they shall not be intoxicated but the chastisement of Allah will be severe.
[22.3] And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge
and follows every rebellious Shaitan;
[22.4] Against him it is written
down that whoever takes him for a friend, he shall lead him astray and conduct
him to the chastisement of the burning fire.
[22.5] O people! if you
are in doubt about the raising, then surely We created you from dust, then from
a small seed, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, complete in make and
incomplete, that We may make clear to you; and We cause what We please to stay
in the wombs till an appointed time, then We bring you forth as babies, then that
you may attain your maturity; and of you is he who is caused to die, and of you
is he who is brought back to the worst part of life, so that after having knowledge
he does not know anything; and you see the earth sterile land, but when We send
down on it the water, it stirs and swells and brings forth of every kind a beautiful
[22.6] This is because Allah is the Truth and because He gives
life to the dead and because He has power over all things
because the hour is coming, there is no doubt about it; and because Allah shall
raise up those who are in the graves.
[22.8] And among men there is
he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and without guidance and without
an illuminating book,
[22.9] Turning away haughtily that he may lead
(others) astray from the way of Allah; for him is disgrace in this world, and
on the day of resurrection We will make him taste the punishment of burning:
[22.10] This is due to what your two hands have sent before, and because
Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants.
[22.11] And among
men is he who serves Allah (standing) on the verge, so that if good befalls him
he is satisfied therewith, but if a trial afflict him he turns back headlong;
he loses this world as well as the hereafter; that is a manifest loss.
He calls besides Allah upon that which does not harm him and that which does not
profit him, that is the great straying.
[22.13] He calls upon him whose
harm is nearer than his profit; evil certainly is the guardian and evil certainly
is the associate.
[22.14] Surely Allah will cause those who believe
and do good deeds to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, surely Allah does
what He pleases.
[22.15] Whoever thinks that Allah will not assist
him in this life and the hereafter, let him stretch a rope to the ceiling, then
let him cut (it) off, then let him see if his struggle will take away that at
which he is enraged.
[22.16] And thus have We revealed it, being clear
arguments, and because Allah guides whom He intends.
those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and
the Magians and those who associate (others with Allah)-- surely Allah will decide
between them on the day of resurrection; surely Allah is a witness over all things.
[22.18] Do you not see that Allah is He, Whom obeys whoever is in the heavens
and whoever is in the earth, and the sun and the moon and the stars, and the mountains
and the trees, and the animals and many of the people; and many there are against
whom chastisement has become necessary; and whomsoever Allah abases, there is
none who can make him honorable; surely Allah does what He pleases.
These are two adversaries who dispute about their Lord; then (as to) those who
disbelieve, for them are cut out garments of fire, boiling water shall be poured
over their heads.
[22.20] With it shall be melted what is in their
bellies and (their) skins as well. 21 And for them are whips of iron. 22 Whenever
they will desire to go forth from it, from grief, they shall be turned back into
it, and taste the chastisement of burning.
[22.23] Surely Allah will
make those who believe and do good deeds enter gardens beneath which rivers flow;
they shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and (with) pearls, and their
garments therein shall be of silk.
[22.24] And they are guided to goodly
words and they are guided into the path of the Praised One.
Surely (as for) those who disbelieve, and hinder (men) from Allah's way and from
the Sacred Mosque which We have made equally for all men, (for) the dweller therein
and (for) the visitor, and whoever shall incline therein to wrong unjustly, We
will make him taste of a painful chastisement.
[22.26] And when We
assigned to Ibrahim the place of the House, saying: Do not associate with Me aught,
and purify My House for those who make the circuit and stand to pray and bow and
[22.27] And proclaim among men the Pilgrimage:
they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, coming from every remote
[22.28] That they may witness advantages for them and mention
the name of Allah during stated days over what He has given them of the cattle
quadrupeds, then eat of them and feed the distressed one, the needy.
Then let them accomplish their needful acts of shaving and cleansing, and let
them fulfil their vows and let them go round the Ancient House.
That (shall be so); and whoever respects the sacred ordinances of Allah, it is
better for him with his Lord; and the cattle are made lawful for you, except that
which is recited to you, therefore avoid the uncleanness of the idols and avoid
[22.31] Being upright for Allah, not associating aught
with Him and whoever associates (others) with Allah, it is as though he had fallen
from on high, then the birds snatch him away or the wind carries him off to a
[22.32] That (shall be so); and whoever respects
the signs of Allah, this surely is (the outcome) of the piety of hearts.
You have advantages in them till a fixed time, then their place of sacrifice is
the Ancient House.
[22.34] And to every nation We appointed acts of
devotion that they may mention the name of Allah on what He has given them of
the cattle quadrupeds; so your God is One God, therefore to Him should you submit,
and give good news to the humble,
[22.35] (To) those whose hearts tremble
when Allah is mentioned, and those who are patient under that which afflicts them,
and those who keep up prayer, and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given
[22.36] And (as for) the camels, We have made them of the signs
of the religion of Allah for you; for you therein is much good; therefore mention
the name of Allah on them as they stand in a row, then when they fall down eat
of them and feed the poor man who is contented and the beggar; thus have We made
them subservient to you, that you may be grateful.
[22.37] There does
not reach Allah their flesh nor their blood, but to Him is acceptable the guarding
(against evil) on your part; thus has He made them subservient to you, that you
may magnify Allah because He has guided you aright; and give good news to those
who do good (to others).
[22.38] Surely Allah will defend those who
believe; surely Allah does not love any one who is unfaithful, ungrateful.
[22.39] Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because
they are oppressed, and most surely Allah is well able to assist them;
Those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that
they say: Our Lord is Allah. And had there not been Allah's repelling some people
by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches
and synagogues and mosques in which Allah's name is much remembered; and surely
Allah will help him who helps His cause; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.
[22.41] Those who, should We establish them in the land, will keep up prayer
and pay the poor-rate and enjoin good and forbid evil; and Allah's is the end
[22.42] And if they reject you, then already before you
did the people of Nuh and Ad and Samood reject (prophets).
And the people of Ibrahim and the people of Lut,
[22.44] As well as
those of Madyan and Musa (too) was rejected, but I gave respite to the unbelievers,
then did I overtake them, so how (severe) was My disapproval.
So how many a town did We destroy while it was unjust, so it was fallen down upon
its roofs, and (how many a) deserted well and palace raised high.
Have they not travelled in the land so that they should have hearts with which
to understand, or ears with which to hear? For surely it is not the eyes that
are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.
And they ask you to hasten on the punishment, and Allah will by no means fail
in His promise, and surely a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what
[22.48] And how many a town to which I gave respite while
it was unjust, then I overtook it, and to Me is the return.
Say: O people! I am only a plain warner to you.
[22.50] Then (as for)
those who believe and do good, they shall have forgiveness and an honorable sustenance.
[22.51] And (as for) those who strive to oppose Our communications, they
shall be the inmates of the flaming fire.
[22.52] And We did not send
before you any apostle or prophet, but when he desired, the Shaitan made a suggestion
respecting his desire; but Allah annuls that which the Shaitan casts, then does
Allah establish His communications, and Allah is Knowing, Wise,
So that He may make what the Shaitan casts a trial for those in whose hearts is
disease and those whose hearts are hard; and most surely the unjust are in a great
[22.54] And that those who have been given the knowledge
may know that it is the truth from your Lord, so they may believe in it and their
hearts may be lowly before it; and most surely Allah is the Guide of those who
believe into a right path.
[22.55] And those who disbelieve shall not
cease to be in doubt concerning it until the hour overtakes them suddenly, or
there comes on them the chastisement of a destructive day.
The kingdom on that day shall be Allah's; He will judge between them; so those
who believe and do good will be in gardens of bliss.
[22.57] And (as
for) those who disbelieve in and reject Our communications, these it is who shall
have a disgraceful chastisement.
[22.58] And (as for) those who fly
in Allah's way and are then slain or die, Allah will most certainly grant them
a goodly sustenance, and most surely Allah is the best Giver of sustenance.
[22.59] He will certainly cause them to enter a place of entrance which
they shall be well pleased with, and most surely Allah is Knowing, Forbearing.
[22.60] That (shall be so); and he who retaliates with the like of that
with which he has been afflicted and he has been oppressed, Allah will most certainly
aid him; most surely.Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
[22.61] That is
because Allah causes the night to enter into the day and causes the day to enter
into the night, and because Allah is Hearing, Seeing.
is because Allah is the Truth, and that what they call upon besides Him-- that
is the falsehood, and because Allah is the High, the Great.
Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the cloud so the earth becomes
green? Surely Allah is Benignant, Aware.
[22.64] His is whatsoever
is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; and most surely Allah is the
Self-sufficient, the Praised.
[22.65] Do you not see that Allah has
made subservient to you whatsoever is in the earth and the ships running in the
sea by His command? And He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth except
with His permission; most surely Allah is Compassionate, Merciful to men.
[22.66] And He it is Who has brought you to life, then He will cause you
to die, then bring you to life (again); most surely man is ungrateful.
To every nation We appointed acts of devotion which they observe, therefore they
should not dispute with you about the matter and call to your Lord; most surely
you are on a right way.
[22.68] And if they contend with you, say:
Allah best knows what you do.
[22.69] Allah will judge between you
on the day of resurrection respecting that in which you differ.
Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the heaven and the earth? Surely this
is in a book; surely this is easy to Allah.
[22.71] And they serve
besides Allah that for which He has not sent any authority, and that of which
they have no knowledge; and for the unjust there shall be no helper.
And when Our clear communications are recited to them you will find denial on
the faces of those who disbelieve; they almost spring upon those who recite to
them Our communications. Say: Shall I inform you of what is worse than this? The
fire; Allah has promised it to those who disbelieve; and how evil the resort!
[22.73] O people! a parable is set forth, therefore listen to it: surely
those whom you call upon besides Allah cannot create fly, though they should all
gather for it, and should the fly snatch away anything from them, they could not
take it back from i weak are the invoker and the invoked.
have not estimated Allah with the estimation that i due to Him; most surely Allah
is Strong, Mighty.
[22.75] Allah chooses messengers from among the
angels and from among the men; surely Allah is Hearing, Seeing.
He knows what is before them and what is behind them and to Allah are all affairs
[22.77] O you who believe! bow down and prostrate yourselves
and serve your Lord, and do.good that you may succeed.
strive hard in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him; He has chosen
you and has not laid upon you an hardship in religion; the faith of your father
Ibrahim; He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Apostle may be a bearer
of witness to you, and you may be bearers of witness to the people; therefore
keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast by Allah; He is your Guardian;
how excellent the Guardian and how excellent the Helper!
