#40. Mumin *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. Ha Mim.

2. The revelation of this Book is from Allah Exalted in Power
Full of Knowledge

3. Who forgiveth Sin accepteth Repentance is strict in Punishment
and hath a Long Reach (in all things). There is no god but He: to
Him is the Final Goal

4. None can dispute about the Signs of Allah but the Unbelievers.
Let not then their strutting about through the land deceive thee!

5. But (there were people) before them who denied (the Signs) the
People of Noah and the confederates (of Evil) after them; and
every People plotted against their prophet to seize him and
disputed by means of vanities therewith to condemn the truth; but
it was I that seized them! And how (terrible) was My Requital!

6. Thus was the Decree of thy Lord proved true against the
Unbelievers; that truly they are Companions of Fire!

7. Those who sustain the Throne (of Allah) and those around it
sing Glory and Praise to their Lord; believe in Him; and implore
forgiveness for those who believe: "Our Lord! Thy reach is over
all things in Mercy and Knowledge. Forgive then those who turn in
repentance and follow Thy Path: and preserve them from the
Penalty of the Blazing Fire!

8. "And grant our Lord! That they enter the Gardens of Eternity
which Thou hast promised to them and to the righteous among their
fathers their wives and their posterity! For Thou art (He) the
Exalted in Might Full of Wisdom

9. "And preserve them from (all) ills; and any whom thou dost
preserve from ills that Day on them wilt Thou have bestowed Mercy
indeed: and that will be truly (for them) the highest Achievement

10. The Unbelievers will be addressed: "Greater was the aversion
of Allah to you than (is) your aversion to yourselves seeing that
ye were called to the Faith and ye used to refuse."

11. They will say:" Our Lord! twice hast Thou made us without
life and twice hast Thou given us Life! Now have we recognized
our sins: is there any way out (of this)?"

12. (The answer will be:) "This is because when Allah was invoked
as the only (object of worship) ye did reject Faith but when
partners were joined to Him ye believed! The command is with
Allah Most High Most Great!"

13. He it is Who showeth you His Signs and sendeth down
sustenance for you from the sky: but only those receive
admonition who turn (to Allah)

14. Call ye then upon Allah with sincere devotion to Him even
though the Unbelievers may detest it

15. Raised high above ranks (or degrees) (He is) the Lord of the
Throne (of authority): by his command doth He send the spirit (of
inspiration) to any of His servants He pleases that it may warn
(men) of the Day of Mutual Meeting

16. The Day whereon they will (all) come forth: Not a single
thing concerning them is hidden from Allah. Whose will be the
dominion that Day? That of Allah the One the Irresistible!

17. That Day will every soul be requited for what it earned; no
injustice will there be that Day for Allah is Swift in taking

18. Warn them of the Day that is (ever) drawing near when the
Hearts will (come) right up to the Throats to choke (them); no
intimate friend nor intercessor will the wrongdoers have who
could be listened to

19. (Allah) knows of (the tricks) that deceive with the eyes and
all that hearts (of men) conceal

20. And Allah will judge with (Justice and) Truth: but those whom
(men) invoke besides Him will not (be in a position) to judge at
all. Verily it is Allah (alone) Who hears and sees (all things)

21. Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the End
of those before them? They were even superior to them in strength
and in the traces: (they have left) in the land: but Allah did
call them to account for their sins and none had they to defend
them against Allah

22. That was because there came to them their apostles with Clear
(Signs) but they rejected them: So Allah called them to account:
for He is full of Strength Strict in Punishment

23. Of old We sent Moses with Our Signs and Authority manifest

24. To Pharaoh Haman and Qarun; but they called (him) "a sorcerer
telling lies!"

25. Now when he came to them in Truth from Us they said "Slay the
sons of those who believe with him and keep alive their females"
but the plots of Unbelievers (end) in nothing but errors (and

26. Said Pharaoh: "Leave me to slay Moses; and let him Call on
his Lord! What I fear is lest he should change your religion or
lest he should cause mischief to appear in the land!"

27. Moses said: "I have indeed called upon my Lord and your Lord
(for protection) from every arrogant one who believes not in the
Day of Account!"

28. A believer a man from among the people of Pharaoh who had
concealed his faith said: "Will ye slay a man because he says `My
Lord is Allah'? When he has indeed come to you with Clear (Signs)
from your Lord? And if he be a liar on him is (the sin of) his
lie: but if he is telling the Truth then will fall on you
something of the (calamity) of which he warns you: truly Allah
guides not one who transgresses and lies!

29. "O my people! yours is the dominion this day: ye have the
upper hand in the land: but who will help us from the Punishment
of Allah should it befall us?" Pharaoh said: "I but point out to
you that which I see (myself); nor do I guide you but to the Path
of Right!"

30. Then said the man who believed: "O my People! truly I do fear
for you something like the Day (of disaster) of the Confederates
(in sin)!

31. "Something like the fate of the people of Noah the `Ad and
the Thamud and those who came after them: but Allah never wishes
injustice to His Servants

32. "And O my People! I fear for you a Day when there will be
mutual calling (and wailing)

33. A day when ye shall turn your backs and flee: no defender
shall ye have from Allah: any whom Allah leaves to stray there is
none to guide

34. "And to you there came Joseph in times gone by with Clear
Signs but ye ceased not to doubt of the (mission) for which he
had come: at length when he died ye said: `No apostle will Allah
send after him. Thus doth Allah leave to stray such as transgress
and live in doubt

35. "(Such) as dispute about the Signs of Allah without any
authority that hath reached them. Grievous and odious (is such
conduct) in the sight of Allah and of the Believers. Thus doth
Allah seal up every heart of arrogant and obstinate

36. Pharaoh said: "O Haman! Build me a lofty palace that I may
attain the ways and means

37. "The ways and means of (reaching) the heavens and that I may
mount up to the Allah of Moses; but as far as I am concerned I
think (Moses) is a liar!" Thus was made alluring in Pharaoh's
eyes the evil of his deeds and he was hindered from the Path; and
the plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but perdition (for him)

38. The man who believed said further: "O my People! follow me: I
will lead you to the Path of Right

39. "O my people! This life of the present is nothing but
(temporary) convenience: it is the Hereafter that is the Home
that will last

40. "He that works evil will not be requited but by the like
thereof: and he that works a righteous deed whether man or woman
and is a believer such will enter the Garden (of Bliss): therein
will they have abundance without measure

41. "And O my People! how (strange) it is for me to call you to
Salvation while ye call me to the Fire!

42. "Ye do call upon me to blaspheme against Allah and to join
with Him Partners of whom I have no knowledge; and I call you to
the Exalted in Power Who forgives again and again!"

43. "Without doubt ye do call me to one who is not fit to be
called to whether in this world or in the Hereafter; our Return
will be to Allah; and the Transgressors will be Companions of the

44. "Soon will ye remember what I say to you (now) my (own)
affair I commit to Allah: for Allah (ever) watches over His

45. Then Allah saved him from (every) ill that they plotted
(against him) but the brunt of the Penalty encompassed on all
sides the People of Pharaoh

46. In front of the Fire will they be brought morning and
evening: and (the Sentence will be) on the Day that Judgment will
be established: "Cast ye the People of Pharaoh into the severest

47. Behold they will dispute with each other in the Fire! The
weak ones (who followed) will say to those who had been arrogant
"We but followed you can ye then take (on yourselves) from us
some share of the Fire?"

48. Those who had been arrogant will say: "We are all in this
(Fire)! Truly Allah has judged between (His) Servants!"

49. Those in the Fire will say to the Keepers of Hell: "Pray to
your Lord to lighten us the Penalty for a Day (at least)!"

50. They will say: "Did there not come to you your apostles with
Clear Signs?" They will say "Yes." They will reply "Then pray (as
ye like) but the Prayer of those without Faith is nothing but
(futile wandering) in (mazes of) error!"

51. We will without doubt help Our apostles and those who believe
(both) in this world's life and on the Day when the Witnesses
will stand forth

52. The Day when no profit will it be to Wrongdoers to present
their excuses but they will (only) have the Curse and the Home of

53. We did aforetime give Moses the (Book of) Guidance and We
gave the Book in inheritance to the Children of Israel

54. A Guide and a Message to men of understanding

55. Patiently then persevere: for the Promise of Allah is true:
and ask forgiveness for thy fault and celebrate the Praises of
thy Lord in the evening and in the morning

56. Those who dispute about the Signs of Allah without any
authority bestowed on them there is nothing in their breasts but
(the quest of) greatness which they shall never attain to: seek
refuge then in Allah: it is He Who hears and sees (all things)

57. Assuredly the creation of the heavens and the earth is a
greater (matter) than the creation of men: Yet most men
understand not

58. Not equal are the blind and those who (clearly) see: nor are
(equal) those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and
those who do evil. Little do ye learn by admonition!

59. The Hour will certainly come: therein is no doubt: yet most
men believe not

60. And your Lord says: "Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer):
But those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find
themselves in Hell in humiliation!"

61. It is Allah Who has made the Night for you that ye may rest
therein and the Day as that which helps (you) to see. Verily
Allah is Full of Grace and Bounty to men: yet most men give no

62. Such is Allah your Lord the Creator of all things there is no
god but He then how ye are deluded away from the Truth!

63. Thus are deluded those who are wont to reject the Signs of

64. It is Allah Who has made for you the earth as a resting place
and the sky as a canopy and has given you shapes and made your
shapes beautiful and has provided for you Sustenance of things
pure and good such is Allah your Lord. So Glory to Allah the Lord
of the Worlds!

65. He is the living (One): There is no god but He: Call upon Him
giving Him sincere devotion. Praise be to Allah Lord of the

66. Say: "I have been forbidden to invoke those whom ye invoke
besides Allah seeing that the Clear Signs have come to me from my
Lord: and I have been commanded to bow (in Islam) to the Lord of
the Worlds."

67. It is He Who has created you from dust then from a sperm-drop
then from a leech-like clot; then does He get you out (into the
light) as a child then lets you (grow and) reach your age of full
strength; then lets you become old though of you there are some
who die before; and lets you reach a Term appointed: in order
that ye may learn wisdom

68. It is He Who gives Life and Death; and when He decides upon
an affair He says to it "Be" and it is

69. Seest thou not those that dispute concerning the signs of
Allah? How are they turned away (from Reality)?

70. Those who reject the Book and the (revelations) with which We
sent Our apostles: But soon shall they know

71. When the yokes (shall be) round their necks and the chains;
they shall be dragged along

72. In the boiling fetid fluid then in the Fire shall they be

73. Then shall it be said to them: "Where are the (deities) to
which ye gave part-worship

74. "In derogation of Allah?" They will reply: "They have left us
in the lurch: nay we invoked not of old anything (that had real
existence)." Thus does Allah leave the Unbelievers to stray?

75. "That was because ye were wont to rejoice on the earth in
things other than the Truth and that ye were wont to be insolent

76. "Enter ye the gates of Hell to dwell therein: and evil is
(this) abode of the arrogant!"

77. So persevere in patience! For the Promise of Allah is true:
and whether We show thee (in this life) some part of what We
promise them or We take thy soul (to Our Mercy) (Before that) (in
any case) it is to Us that they shall (all) return

78. We did aforetime send apostles before thee: of them there are
some whose story We have related to thee and some whose story We
have not related to thee. It was not (possible) for any apostle
to bring a Sign except by thes leave of Allah: but when the
Command of Allah issued the matter was decided in truth and
justice and there perished there and then those who stood on

79. It is Allah Who made cattle for you that ye may use some for
riding and some for food

80. And there are (other) advantages in them for you (besides);
that ye may through them attain to any need (there may be) in
your hearts; and on them and on ships ye are carried

81. And He shows you always His Signs; then which of the Signs of
Allah will ye deny?

82. Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the end
of those before them? They were more numerous than these and
superior in strength and in the traces (they have left) in the
land: yet all that they accomplished was of no profit to them

83. For when their apostles came to them with Clear Signs they
exulted in such knowledge (and skill) as they had; but that very
(Wrath) at which they were wont to scoff hemmed them in

84. But when they saw Our punishment they said: "We believe in
Allah the One Allah and we reject the partners we used to join
with Him."

85. But their professing the Faith when they (actually) saw Our
Punishment was not going to profit them. (Such has been) Allah's
way of dealing with His servants (from the most ancient times).
And even thus did the rejecters of Allah perish (utterly)!
