#35. Faatir *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. Praise be to Allah Who created (out of nothing) the heavens
and the earth Who made the angels messengers with wings two or
three or four (Pairs): He adds to Creation as He pleases: for
Allah has power over all things

2. What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is
none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant
apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power Full of Wisdom

3. O men! call to mind the grace of Allah unto you! Is there a
Creator other than Allah to give you Sustenance from heaven or
earth? There is no god but He: how then are ye deluded away from
the Truth?

4. And if they reject thee so were apostles rejected before thee:
to Allah go back for decision all affairs

5. O men! certainly the promise of Allah is true. Let not then
this present life deceive you nor let the Chief Deceiver deceive
you about Allah.

6. Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He
only invites his adherents that they may become Companions of the
Blazing Fire

7. For those who reject Allah is a terrible Penalty: but for
those who believe and work righteous deeds is Forgiveness and a
magnificent Reward

8. Is he then to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring so
that he looks upon it as good (equal to one who is rightly
guided)? For Allah leaves to stray whom He wills and guides whom
He wills. So let not thy soul go out in (vainly) sighing after
them: for Allah knows well all that they do!

9. It is Allah Who sends forth the Winds so that they raise up
the Clouds and We drive them to a Land that is dead and revive
the earth therewith after its death: even so (will be) the
Resurrection!

10. If any do seek for glory and power to Allah belong all glory
and power. To Him mount up (all) Words of Purity: it is He Who
exalts each Deed of Righteousness. Those that lay Plots of Evil
for them is a Penalty terrible; and the plotting of such will be
void (of result)

11. And Allah did create you from dust; then from a sperm-drop;
then He made you in pairs. And no female conceives or lays down
(her load) but with His knowledge. Nor is a man long-lived
granted length of days nor is a part cut off from his life but is
in a Decree (ordained). All this is easy for Allah

12. Nor are the two bodies of flowing water alike the one
palatable sweet and pleasant to drink and the other salty and
bitter. Yet from each (kind of water) do ye eat flesh fresh and
tender and ye extract ornaments to wear; and thou seest the ships
therein that plough the waves that ye may seek (thus) of the
Bounty of Allah that ye may be grateful

13. He merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night and He
has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law): each one runs
its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah your Lord: to Him
belongs all Dominion. And those whom ye invoke besides Him have
not the least power

14. If ye invoke them they will not listen to your call and if
they were to listen they cannot answer your (prayer). On the Day
of Judgement they will reject your "Partnership." And none (O
man!) can tell thee (the Truth) like the One Who is acquainted
with all things

15. O ye men! it is ye that have need of Allah: but Allah is the
One Free of all wants Worthy of all praise

16. If He so pleased He could blot you out and bring in a New
Creation:

17. Nor is that (at all) difficult for Allah

18. Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another's burden. If one
heavily laden should call another to (bear) his load not the
least portion of it can be carried (by the other) even though he
be nearly related. Thou canst but admonish such as fear their
Lord unseen and establish regular Prayer and whoever purifies
himself does so for the benefit of his own soul; and the
destination (of all) is to Allah

19. The blind and the seeing are not alike

20. Nor are the depths of Darkness and the Light

21. Nor are the (chilly) shade and the (genial) heat of the sun

22. Nor are alike those that are living and those that are dead.
Allah can make any that He wills to hear; but thou canst not make
those to hear who are (buried) in graves

23. Thou art no other than a warner

24. Verily We have sent thee in truth as a bearer of glad tidings
and as a warner: and there never was a people without a warner
having lived among them (in the past)

25. And if they reject thee so did their predecessors to whom
came their apostles with Clear Signs Books of Dark Prophecies and
the Book of Enlightenment

26. In the end did I punish those who rejected Faith: and how
(terrible) was My rejection (of them)!

27. Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky? With
it We then bring out produce of various colors. And in the
mountains are tracts white and red of various shades of color and
black intense in hue

28. And so amongst men and crawling creatures and cattle are they
of various colors. Those truly fear Allah among His Servants who
have knowledge: forh Allah is Exalted in Might Oft-Forgiving

29. Those who rehearse the Book of Allah establish regular Prayer
and spend (in Charity) out of what We have provided for them
secretly and openly hope for a Commerce that will never fail

30. For He will pay them their meed nay He will give them (even)
more out of His Bounty; for He is Oft-Forgiving Most Ready to
appreciate (service)

31. That which We have revealed to thee of the Book is the Truth
confirming what was (revealed) before it: for Allah is assuredly
with respect to his servants well acquainted and fully-Observant

32. Then We have given the Book for inheritance to such of Our
servants as We have chosen: but there are among them some who
wrong their own souls; some who follow a middle course; and some
who are by Allah's leave foremost in good deeds; that is the
highest Grace

33. Gardens of Eternity will they enter: therein will they be
adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments
there will be of silk

34. And they will say: "Praise be to Allah Who has removed from
us (all) sorrow: for Our Lord is indeed Oft-Forgiving Ready to
appreciate (service)

35. "Who has out of His bounty settled us in a Home that will
last: no toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us therein."

36. But those who reject (Allah) for them will be the Fire of
Hell: no term shall be determined for them so they should die nor
shall its Penalty be lightened for them: thus do We reward every
ungrateful one!

37. Therein will they cry aloud (for assistance): "Our Lord!
bring us out: we shall work righteousness not the (deeds) we used
to do!" Did we not give you long enough life so that he that
would should receive admonition? And (moreover) the warner came
to you. So taste ye (the fruit of your deeds) for the Wrongdoers
there is no helper."

38. Verily Allah knows (all) the hidden things of the heavens and
the earth: verily He has full knowledge of all that is in (men's)
hearts

39. He it is that has made you inheritors in the earth: if then
any do reject (Allah) their rejection (works) against themselves:
their rejection but adds to the odium for the Unbelievers in the
sight of their Lord: their rejection but adds to (their own)
undoing

40. Say: "Have ye seen (these) `partners' of yours whom ye call
upon besides Allah?" Show me what it is they have created in the
(wide) earth. Or have they a share in the heavens? Or have We
given them a Book from which they (can derive) clear (evidence)?
Nay the wrongdoers promise each other nothing but delusions

41. It is Allah Who sustains the heavens and the earth lest they
cease (to function): and if they should fail there is none not
one can sustain them thereafter: verily He is Most Forbearing
Oft-Forgiving

42. They swore their strongest oaths by Allah that if a warner
came to them they would follow his guidance better than any
(other) of the Peoples: but when a warner came to them it has
only increased their flight (from righteousness)

43. On account of their arrogance in the land and their plotting
of Evil. But the plotting of Evil will hem in only the authors
thereof. Now are they but looking for the way the ancients were
dealt with? But no change wilt thou find in Allah's way (of
dealing): no turning off wilt thou find in Allah's way (of
dealing)

44. Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the end
of those before them though they were superior to them in
strength? Nor is Allah to be frustrated by anything whatever in
the heavens or on earth: for He is All-Knowing All-Powerful

45. If Allah were to punish men according to what they deserve He
would not leave on the back of the (earth) a single living
creature: but He gives them respite for a stated Term: when their
Term expires verily Allah has in his sight all His servants
