#41. Ha-Mim *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. Ha Mim.

2. A revelation from (Allah) Most Gracious Most Merciful

3. A Book whereof the verses are explained in detail a Qur'an in
Arabic forpeople who understand

4. Giving Good News and Admonition: yet most of them turn away
and so they hear not

5. They say: "Our hearts are under veils (concealed) from that to
which thou dost invite us and in ours ears in a deafness and
between us and thee is a screen: so do thou (what thou wilt); for
us we shall do (what we will!)."

6. Say thou: "I am but a man like you: it is revealed to me by
inspiration that your Allah is One Allah: so stand true to Him
and ask for His forgiveness." And woe to those who join gods with

7. Those who practice not Regular Charity and who even deny the

8. For those who believe and work deeds of righteousness is a
reward that will never fail.

9. Say: Is it that ye Deny Him Who created the earth in two Days?
And do ye join equals with Him? He is the Lord of (all) the

10. He set on the (earth) Mountains standing firm high above it
and bestowed blessings on the earth and measured therein all
things to give them nourishment in due proportion in four Days in
accordance with (the needs of) those who seek (sustenance).

11. Moreover He Comprehended in His design the sky and it had
been (as) smoke He said to it and to the earth: "Come ye together
willingly or unwillingly." They said: "We do come (together) in
willing obedience."

12. So He completed them as seven firmaments in two Days and He
assigned to each heaven its duty and command. And We adorned the
lower heaven with lights and (provided it) with guard. Such is
the Decree of (Him) the Exalted in Might Full of knowledge.

13. But if they turn away say thou: "I have warned you of a
stunning Punishment (as of thunder and lightning) like that which
(overtook) the `Ad and the Thamud!"

14. Behold the apostles came to them from before them and behind
them (preaching): "Serve none but Allah." They said "If our Lord
had so pleased He would certainly have sent down angels (to
preach): now we reject your mission (altogether)."

15. Now the `Ad behaved arrogantly through the land against (all)
truth and reason and said: "Who is superior to us in strength?"
What! did they not see that Allah Who created them was superior
to them in strength? But they" continued to reject Our Signs!

16. So We sent against them a furious Wind through days of
disaster that We might give them a taste of a Penalty of
humiliation in this Life; but the Penalty of the Hereafter will
be more humiliating still: and they will find no help.

17. As to the Thamud We gave them guidance but they preferred
blindness (of heart) to Guidance; so the stunning Punishment of
humiliation seized them because of what they had earned.

18. But We delivered those who believed and practiced

19. On the Day that the enemies of Allah will be gathered
together to the Fire"they will be marched in ranks.

20. At length when they reach the (Fire) their hearing their
sight and their skins will bear witness against them as to (all)
their deeds.

21. They will say to their skins: "Why bear ye witness against
us?" They will ay: "Allah hath given us speech (He) Who giveth
speech to everything: He created you for the first time and unto
Him were ye to return.

22. "Ye did not seek to hide yourselves lest your hearing your
sight and your skins should bear witness against you! But ye did
think that Allah knew.

23. "But this thought of yours which ye did entertain concerning
your Lord hath brought you to destruction and (now) have ye
become of those utterly lost!"

24. If then they have patience the Fire will be a Home for them!
And if they beg to be received into favor into favor will they
not (then) be received.

25. And We have destined for them intimate companions (of like
nature) Who made alluring to them what was before them and behind
them; and the sentence among the previous generations of Jinns
and men who have passed away is proved against them; for they are
utterly lost.

26. The Unbelievers say: "Listen not to this Qur'an but talk at
random in the midst of its (reading) that ye may gain the upper

27. But We will certainly give the Unbelievers a taste of a
severe Penalty and We will requite them for the worst of their

28. Such is the requital of the enemies of Allah the Fire:
therein will be for them the Eternal Home: a (fit) requital for
that they were wont to reject Our Signs.

29. And the Unbelievers will say: "Our Lord! show us those among
Jinns and men who misled us: we shall crush them beneath our feet
so that they become the vilest (before all)."

30. In the case of those who say "Our Lord is Allah" and further
stand straight and steadfast the angels descend on them (from
time to time) "Fear ye not!" (they suggest) "nor grieve! but
receive the Glad Tidings of the Garden (of Bliss) the which ye
were promised!

31. "We are your protectors in this life and in the Hereafter:
therein shall ye have all that your souls shall desire; therein
shall ye have all that ye ask for!

32. "A hospitable gift from One Oft-Forgiving Most

33. Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah
works righteousness and says "I am of those who bow in Islam"?

34. Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is
better then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it
were thy friend and intimade.

35. And no one will be granted such goodness except those who
exercise patience and self-restraint none but persons of the
greatest good fortune.

36. And if (at any time) an incitement to discord is made to thee
by the Evil One seek refuge in Allah. He is the One Who hears and
knows all things.

37. Among His Signs are the Night and the Day and the sun and
moon. Adore not the Sun and the Moon but adore Allah Who created
them if it is Him ye wish to serve.

38. But if they (Unbelievers) are arrogant (no matter) for in the
presence of thy Lord are those who celebrate His praises by night
and by day. And they never flag (nor feel themselves above it).

39. And among His Signs is this: thou seest the earth barren and
desolate; but when We send down rain to it it is stirred to life
and yields increase. Truly He Who gives life to the (dead) earth
can surely give life to (men) who are dead. For He has power over
all things.

40. Those who pervert the Truth in Our Signs are not hidden from
Us. Which is better? He that is cast into the Fire or he that
comes safe through on the Day of Judgement? Do what ye will
Verily He seeth (clearly) all that ye do.

41. Those who reject the Message when it comes to them (are not
hidden from Us); and indeed it is a Book of exalted power.

42. No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: it is
sent down by One Full of Wisdom Worthy of all Praise.

43. Nothing is said to thee that was not said to the apostles
before thee That thy Lord has at His command (all) Forgiveness as
well as a most Grievous Penalty.

44. Had We sent this as a Qur'an (in a language) other than
Arabic they would N have said: "Why are not its verses
explained in detail? What! (a Book) not in Arabic and (a
Messenger) an Arab?" Say: "It is a guide and a healing to
those who believe; and for those who believe not there is a
deafness in their ears and it is blindness in their (eyes); they
are (as it were) being called from a place far distant!"

45. We certainly gave Moses the Book aforetime: but dispute arose
therein. Had it not been for a word that went forth before from
thy Lord (their differences) would have been settled between
them: but they remained in )suspicious disquieting doubt thereon.

46. Whoever works righteousness benefits his own soul; whoever
works evil it is against his own soul: nor is thy Lord ever
unjust (in the least) to His servants.

47. To Him is referred the Knowledge of the Hour (of Judgment: He
knows all) no date-fruit comes out of its sheath nor does a
female conceive (within her womb) nor bring forth (young) but by
His Knowledge. The Day that (Allah) will propound to them the
(question) "Where are the partners (ye attributed) to Me?" They
will say "We do assure thee not one of us can bear witness!".

48. The (deities) they used to invoke aforetime will leave them
in the lurch and they will perceive that they have no way of

49. Man does not weary of asking for good (things) but if ill
touches him he gives up all hope (and) is lost in despair.

50. When We give him a taste of some mercy from Ourselves after
some adversity has touched him he is sure to say "This is due to
my (merit) think not that the Hour (of Judgment) will (ever) be
established; but if I am brought back to my Lord I have (much)
good (stored) in His sight!" But We will show the Unbelievers the
truth of all that they did and We shall give them the taste of a
severe Penalty.

51. When We bestow favors on man he turns away and gets himself
remote on his side (instead of coming to Us); and when Evil
seizes him (he comes) full of prolonged prayer!

52. Say: "See ye if the (Revelation) is (really) from Allah and
yet do ye reject it? Who is more astray than one who is in schism
far (from any purpose)?"

53. Soon will We show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions
(of the earth) and in their own souls until it becomes manifest
to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord
doth witness all things?

54. Ah indeed! are they in doubt concerning the Meeting with
their Lord? Ah indeed! it is He that doth encompass all things!
