حمٓ ﴿١﴾
Ha Mim.
The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.
Most surely in the heavens and the earth there are signs for the believers.
And in your (own) creation and in what He spreads abroad of animals there are signs for a people that are sure;
And (in) the variation of the night and the day, and (in) what Allah sends down of sustenance from the cloud, then gives life thereby to the earth after its death, and (in) the changing of the winds, there are signs for a people who understand.
These are the communications of Allah which We recite to you with truth; then in what announcement would they believe after Allah and His communications?
Who hears the communications of Allah recited to him, then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so announce to him a painful punishment.
And when he comes to know of any of Our communications, he takes it for a jest; these it is that shall have abasing chastisement.
This is guidance; and (as for) those who disbelieve in the communications of their Lord, they shall have a painful punishment on account of uncleanness.
Allah is He Who made subservient to you the sea that the ships may run therein by His command, and that you may seek of His grace, and that you may give thanks.
And He has made subservient to you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, all, from Himself; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.
Whoever does good, it is for his own soul, and whoever does evil, it is against himself; then you shall be brought back to your– Lord.
Surely they shall not avail you in the least against Allah; and surely the unjust are friends of each other, and Allah is the guardian of those who guard (against evil).
These are clear proofs for men, and a guidance and a mercy for a people who are sure.
And Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth and that every soul may be rewarded for what it has earned and they shall not be wronged.
Have you then considered him who takes his low desire for his god, and Allah has made him err having knowledge and has set a seal upon his ear and his heart and put a covering upon his eye. Who can then guide him after Allah? Will you not then be mindful?
And Allah’s is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and on the day when the hour shall come to pass, on that day shall they perish who say false things.
And when it was said, Surely the promise of Allah is true and as for the hour, there is no doubt about it, you said: We do not know what the hour is; we do not think (that it will come to pass) save a passing thought, and we are not at all sure.
And the evil (consequences) of what they did shall become manifest to them and that which they mocked shall encompass them.
And it shall be said: Today We forsake you as you neglected the meeting of this day of yours and your abode is the fire, and there are not for you any helpers:
That is because you took the communications of Allah for a jest and the life of this world deceived you. So on that day they shall not be brought forth from it, nor shall they be granted goodwill.
Therefore to Allah is due (all) praise, the Lord of the heavens and the Lord of the earth, the Lord of the worlds.
