#57. Hadiid *SURAH*



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful




1. Whatever is in the heavens and on earth let it declare the
Praises and Glory of Allah: for He is the Exalted in Might the
Wise

2. To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; it
is He Who gives life and Death; and He has Power over all things

3. He is the First and the Last the Evident and the immanent: and
He has full knowledge of all things

4. He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and
is moreover firmly established on the Throne (of authority). He
knows what enters within the earth and what comes forth out of it
what comes down from heaven and what mounts up to it. And He is
with you wheresoever ye may be. And Allah sees well all that ye
do

5. To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: and
all affairs are referred back to Allah

6. He merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night; and He
has full knowledge of the secrets of (all) hearts

7. Believe in Allah and His Apostle and spend (in charity) out of
the (substance) whereof He has made you heirs. For those of you
who believe and spend (in charity) for them is a great Reward.

8. What cause have ye why ye should not believe in Allah? And the
Apostle invites you to believe in your Lord and has indeed taken
your Covenant if ye are men of faith

9. He is the One Who Sends to His Servants manifest Signs that He
may lead you from the depths of Darkness into the Light. And
verily Allah is to you Most Kind and Merciful

10. And what cause have ye why ye should not spend in the cause
of Allah? For to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and
the earth. Not equal among you are those who spent (freely) and
fought before the Victory (with those who did so later). Those
are higher in rank than those who spent (freely) and fought
afterwards. But to all has Allah promised a goodly (reward) and
Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do

11. Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful Loan? For
(Allah) will increase it manifold to his credit and he will have
(besides) a liberal reward

12. One Day shalt thou see the believing men and the believing
women how their Light runs forward before them and by their right
hands: (their greeting will be): "Good News for you this Day!
Gardens beneath which flow rivers! To dwell therein for aye! this
is indeed the highest Achievement!"

13. One day will the Hypocrites men and women say to the
Believers: "Wait for us! let us borrow (a light) from your
Light!" It will be said: "turn ye back to your rear! then seek a
light (where ye can)!" So a wall will be put up betwixt them with
a gate therein. Within it will be Mercy throughout and without it
all alongside will be (wrath and) Punishment!

14. (Those without) will call out "were we not with you?" (The
others) will reply "True! but ye led yourselves into temptation;
ye looked forward (to our ruin); ye doubted (Allah's promise);
and (your false) desires deceived you; until there issued the
Command of Allah. And the Deceiver deceived you in respect of
Allah

15. "This Day shall no ransom be accepted of you nor of those who
rejected Allah. Your abode is the fire: That is the proper place
to claim you: and an evil refuge it is !"

16. Has not the time arrived for the Believers that their hearts
in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of
the truth which has been revealed (to them) and that they should
not become like those to whom was given Revelation aforetime but
long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard? For many
among them are rebellious transgressors

17. Know ye (all) that Allah giveth life to the earth after its
death! already have We shown the Signs plainly to you that ye may
learn wisdom

18. For those who give in Charity men and women and loan to Allah
a Beautiful Loan it shall be increased manifold (to their credit)
and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward

19. And those who believe in Allah and His apostles they are the
Sincere (Lovers of truth) and the witnesses (who testify) in the
eyes of their Lord: they shall have their Reward and their Light
but those who reject Allah and deny Our Signs they are the
Companions of Hell- Fire

20. Know ye (all) that the life of this world is but play and
amusement pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying (in rivalry)
among yourselves riches and children: Here is a similitude: How
rain and the growth which it brings forth delight (the hearts of)
the tillers; soon it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then
it becomes dry and crumbles away. But in the Hereafter is a
Penalty severe (for the devotees of wrong) and Forgiveness from
Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the devotees of Allah). And
what is the life of this world but goods and chattels of
deception?

21. Be ye foremost (in seeking) forgiveness from your Lord and a
Garden (of Bliss) the width whereof is as the width of heaven and
earth prepared for those who believe in Allah and His apostles:
that is the Grace of Allah which He bestows on whom He pleases:
and Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding

22. No misfortune can happen on earth or in your souls but is
recorded in a decree before We bring it into existence: that is
truly easy for Allah

23. In order that ye may not despair over matters that pass you
by nor exult over favors bestowed upon you. For Allah loveth not
any vainglorious boaster

24. Such persons as are covetous and commend covetousness to men.
And if any turn back (from Allah's Way) verily Allah is free of
all needs worthy of all praise

25. We sent aforetime our apostles with Clear Signs and sent down
with them the Book and the Balance (of Right and Wrong) that men
may stand forth in justice; and We sent down Iron in which is
(material for) mighty war as well as many benefits for mankind
that Allah may test who it is that will help unseen Him and His
apostles; for Allah is Full of Strength exalted in) Might (and
able to enforce His will)

26. And We sent Noah and Abraham and established in their line
Prophethood and Revelation: and some of them were on right
guidance but many of them became rebellious transgressors

27. Then in their wake We followed them up with (others of) Our
apostles: We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary and bestowed
on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who
followed him Compassion and Mercy. But the monasticism which they
invented for themselves We did not prescribe for them: (We
commanded) only the seeking for the Good pleasure of Allah; but
that they did not foster as they should have done. Yet We
bestowed on those among them who believed their (due) reward but
many of them are rebellious transgressors

28. O ye that believe! fear Allah and believe in His apostle and
He will bestow on you a double portion of His Mercy: He will
provide for you a light by which ye shall walk (straight in your
path) and He will forgive you (your past): For Allah is
Oft-Forgiving. Most Merciful

29. That the People of the Book may know that they have no power
whatever over the Grace of Allah that (His) Grace is (entirely)
in his hand to bestow it on whomsoever He wills. For Allah is the
Lord of Grace abounding.
