022:000 Translations of the Qur'an, Chapter 22: AL-HAJJ (THE PILGRIMAGE). Total Verses: 78. Revealed At: MADINA

022:000                   In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

022:001

022:001                   Section 1: The Judgment

022:001 Khan          O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing.

022:001 Maulana     O people, keep your duty to your Lord; surely the shock of the Hour is a grievous thing.

022:001 Pickthal      O mankind! Fear your Lord. Lo! the earthquake of the Hour (of Doom) is a tremendous thing.

022:001 Rashad       O people, you shall reverence your Lord, for the quaking of the Hour is something horrendous.

022:001 Sarwar       People, have fear of your Lord; the quake (of the physical realm) at the Hour of Doom will be terribly violent.

022:001 Shakir        O people! guard against (the punishment from) your Lord; surely the violence of the hour is a grievous thing.

022:001 Sherali       O people, fear your Lord; Verily the earthquake of the Hour is a tremendous thing -

022:001 Yusufali     O mankind! fear your Lord! for the convulsion of the Hour (of Judgment) will be a thing terrible!

022:002

022:002 Khan          The Day you shall see it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling, and every pregnant one will drop her load, and you shall see mankind as in a drunken state, yet they will not be drunken, but severe will be the Torment of Allah.

022:002 Maulana     The day you see it, every woman giving suck will forget her suckling and every pregnant one will lay down her burden, and thou wilt see men as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the chastisement of Allah will be severe.

022:002 Pickthal      On the day when ye behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and thou (Muhammad) wilt see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the Doom of Allah will be strong (upon them).

022:002 Rashad       The day you witness it, even a nursing mother will discard her infant, and a pregnant woman will abort her fetus. You will see the people staggering, as if they are intoxicated, even though they are not intoxicated. This is because GOD's retribution is so awesome.

022:002 Sarwar       When that hour comes, every breast-feeding mother will drop her baby out of fear and every pregnant female will cast off her burden. You will see the people behaving as though they were drunk, while, in fact, they are not drunk. They only will look such because of the severity of God's torment.

022:002 Shakir        On the day when you shall see it, every woman giving suck shall quit in confusion what she suckled, and every pregnant woman shall lay down her burden, and you shall see men intoxicated, and they shall not be intoxicated but the chastisement of Allah will be severe.

022:002 Sherali       On the day when you see it, every woman giving suck shall forget her suckling and every pregnant woman shall cast her burden; and thou shalt see men as they were drunken while they will not be drunken, but severe will indeed be the chastisement of ALLAH.

022:002 Yusufali     The Day ye shall see it, every mother giving suck shall forget her suckling-babe, and every pregnant female shall drop her load (unformed): thou shalt see mankind as in a drunken riot, yet not drunk: but dreadful will be the Wrath of Allah.

022:003

022:003 Khan          And among mankind is he who disputes concerning Allah, without knowledge, and follows every rebellious (disobedient to Allah) Shaitan (devil) (devoid of each and every kind of good).

022:003 Maulana     And among men is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge, and follows every rebellious devil --

022:003 Pickthal      Among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge, and followeth each froward devil;

022:003 Rashad       Among the people, there are those who argue about GOD without knowledge, and follow every rebellious devil.

022:003 Sarwar       Some people argue about God without knowledge and follow every rebellious devil.

022:003 Shakir        And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and follows every rebellious Shaitan;

022:003 Sherali       And among men there are some who dispute about ALLAH without knowledge and follow every rebellious satan -

022:003 Yusufali     And yet among men there are such as dispute about Allah, without knowledge, and follow every evil one obstinate in rebellion!

022:004

022:004 Khan          For him (the devil) it is decreed that whosoever follows him, he will mislead him, and will drive him to the torment of the Fire.

022:004 Maulana     For him it is written that whoever takes him for a friend, he will lead him astray and conduct him to the chastisement of the burning Fire.

022:004 Pickthal      For him it is decreed that whoso taketh him for friend, he verily will mislead him and will guide him to the punishment of the Flame.

022:004 Rashad       It is decreed that anyone who allies himself with him, he will mislead him and guide him to the agony of Hell.

022:004 Sarwar       It has been decided that satan will mislead and submit anyone who establishes friendship with him to the torment of the burning fire.

022:004 Shakir        Against him it is written down that whoever takes him for a friend, he shall lead him astray and conduct him to the chastisement of the burning fire.

022:004 Sherali       Concerning whom it is decreed that whosoever makes friends with him, him he will lead astray and will guide to the torment of the Fire.

022:004 Yusufali     About the (Evil One) it is decreed that whoever turns to him for friendship, him will he lead astray, and he will guide him to the Penalty of the Fire.

022:005

022:005 Khan          O mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then verily! We have created you (i.e. Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah (mixed drops of male and female sexual discharge i.e. offspring of Adam), then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed (miscarriage), that We may make (it) clear to you (i.e. to show you Our Power and Ability to do what We will). And We cause whom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then We bring you out as infants, then (give you growth) that you may reach your age of full strength. And among you there is he who dies (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the miserable old age, so that he knows nothing after having known. And you see the earth barren, but when We send down water (rain) on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells and puts forth every lovely kind (of growth).

022:005 Maulana     O people, if you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then surely We created you from dust, then from a small life-germ, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, complete in make and incomplete, that We may make clear to you. And We cause what We please to remain in the wombs till an appointed time, then We bring you forth as babies, then that you may attain your maturity. And of you is he who is caused to die, and of you is he who is brought back to the worst part of life, so that after knowledge he knows nothing. And thou seest the earth barren, but when We send down thereon water, it stirs and swells and brings forth a beautiful (growth) of every kind.

022:005 Pickthal      O mankind! if ye are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then lo! We have created you from dust, then from a drop of seed, then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh shapely and shapeless, that We may make (it) clear for you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, and afterward We bring you forth as infants, then (give you growth) that ye attain your full strength. And among you there is he who dieth (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the most abject time of life, so that, after knowledge, he knoweth naught. And thou (Muhammad) seest the earth barren, but when We send down water thereon, it doth thrill and swell and put forth every lovely kind (of growth).

022:005 Rashad       O people, if you have any doubt about resurrection, (remember that) we created you from dust, and subsequently from a tiny drop, which turns into a hanging (embryo), then it becomes a fetus that is given life or deemed lifeless. We thus clarify things for you. We settle in the wombs whatever we will for a predetermined period. We then bring you out as infants, then you reach maturity. While some of you die young, others live to the worst age, only to find out that no more knowledge can be attained beyond a certain limit. Also, you look at a land that is dead, then as soon as we shower it with water, it vibrates with life and grows all kinds of beautiful plants.

022:005 Sarwar       People, if you have doubts about the Resurrection, you must know that We created you from clay that was turned into a living germ. This was developed into a clot of blood, which was made into a well formed and partly shapeless lump of flesh. This is how We show you that resurrection is not more difficult for Us than your creation. We cause whatever We want to stay in the womb for an appointed time, We then take you out of the womb as a baby, so that you may grow up and receive strength. Some of you may then die and others may grow to a very old age and lose your memory. You may see the earth as a barren land, but when we send rain, it starts to stir and swell and produce various pairs of attractive herbs.

022:005 Shakir        O people! if you are in doubt about the raising, then surely We created you from dust, then from a small seed, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, complete in make and incomplete, that We may make clear to you; and We cause what We please to stay in the wombs till an appointed time, then We bring you forth as babies, then that you may attain your maturity; and of you is he who is caused to die, and of you is he who is brought back to the worst part of life, so that after having knowledge he does not know anything; and you see the earth sterile land, but when We send down on it the water, it stirs and swells and brings forth of every kind a beautiful herbage.

022:005 Sherali       O people, if you are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then consider that WE have indeed created you from dust, then from a sperm drop, then from clotted blood, then from a lump of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that WE make Our power manifest to you. And WE cause what WE will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term; then WE bring you forth as babes; then WE rear you that you may attain to your age of full strength. And there are some of you who are caused to die in the normal course, and there are others among you are kept back till the worst part of life with the result that they know nothing after having had knowledge. And thou seest the earth lifeless, but when WE send down water thereon it stirs and swells and grows every kind of beauteous vegetation.

022:005 Yusufali     O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (our power) to you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We bring you out as babes, then (foster you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much), and (further), thou seest the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs).

022:006

022:006 Khan          That is because Allah, He is the Truth, and it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who is Able to do all things.

022:006 Maulana     That is because Allah, He is the Truth, and He gives life to the dead, and He is Possessor of power over all things,

022:006 Pickthal      That is because Allah, He is the Truth and because He quickeneth the dead, and because He is Able to do all things;

022:006 Rashad       This proves that GOD is the Truth, and that He revives the dead, and that He is Omnipotent.

022:006 Sarwar       This is because God is the Supreme Truth who gives life to the dead and who has power over all things.

022:006 Shakir        This is because Allah is the Truth and because He gives life to the dead and because He has power over all things

022:006 Sherali       That is because ALLAH is Self-Subsisting and All-Sustaining, and that it is HE Who brings the dead to life, and that HE has power over all things;

022:006 Yusufali     This is so, because Allah is the Reality: it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who has power over all things.

022:007

022:007 Khan          And surely, the Hour is coming, there is no doubt about it, and certainly, Allah will resurrect those who are in the graves.

022:007 Maulana     And the Hour is coming, there is no doubt about it; and Allah will raise up those who are in the graves.

022:007 Pickthal      And because the Hour will come, there is no doubt thereof; and because Allah will raise those who are in the graves.

022:007 Rashad       And that the Hour is coming, no doubt about it, and that GOD resurrects those who are in the graves.

022:007 Sarwar       There is no doubt about the coming of the Hour of Doom and that God will raise every one from their graves.

022:007 Shakir        And because the hour is coming, there is no doubt about it; and because Allah shall raise up those who are in the graves.

022:007 Sherali       And because the Hour will certainly come, there is no doubt about it, and because ALLAH will raise up those who are in the graves.

022:007 Yusufali     And verily the Hour will come: there can be no doubt about it, or about (the fact) that Allah will raise up all who are in the graves.

022:008

022:008 Khan          And among men is he who disputes about Allah, without knowledge or guidance, or a Book giving light (from Allah),

022:008 Maulana     And among men is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge, and without guidance, and without an illuminating Book.

022:008 Pickthal      And among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge or guidance or a scripture giving light,

022:008 Rashad       Among the people there is the one who argues about GOD without knowledge, and without guidance, and without an enlightening scripture.

022:008 Sarwar       Some people argue about God without knowledge, guidance, and an enlightening Book.

022:008 Shakir        And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and without guidance and without an illuminating book,

022:008 Sherali       And among men is he who disputes concerning ALLAH without knowledge and without guidance and without an illuminating Book,

022:008 Yusufali     Yet there is among men such a one as disputes about Allah, without Knowledge, without Guidance, and without a Book of Enlightenment,-

022:009

022:009 Khan          Bending his neck in pride (far astray from the Path of Allah), and leading (others) too (far) astray from the Path of Allah. For him there is disgrace in this worldly life, and on the Day of Resurrection We shall make him taste the torment of burning (Fire).

022:009 Maulana     Turning away haughtily to lead men astray from the way of Allah. For him is disgrace in this world, and on the day of Resurrection We shall make him taste the punishment of burning.

022:009 Pickthal      Turning away in pride to beguile (men) from the way of Allah. For him in this world is ignominy, and on the Day of Resurrection We make him taste the doom of burning.

022:009 Rashad       Arrogantly he strives to divert the people from the path of GOD. He thus incurs humiliation in this life, and we commit him on the Day of Resurrection to the agony of burning.

022:009 Sarwar       They turn away (from the Truth) to lead people away from the path of God. Their share in this world will be disgrace and on the Day of Judgment a burning torment.

022:009 Shakir        Turning away haughtily that he may lead (others) astray from the way of Allah; for him is disgrace in this world, and on the day of resurrection We will make him taste the punishment of burning:

022:009 Sherali       Turning his side disdainfully, that he may lead men astray from the way of ALLAH. For him is disgrace in this world; and on the Day of Resurrection WE shall make him taste the punishment of burning.

022:009 Yusufali     (Disdainfully) bending his side, in order to lead (men) astray from the Path of Allah: for him there is disgrace in this life, and on the Day of Judgment We shall make him taste the Penalty of burning (Fire).

022:010

022:010 Khan          That is because of what your hands have sent forth, and verily, Allah is not unjust to (His) slaves.

022:010 Maulana     This is for that which thy two hands have sent before, and Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants.

022:010 Pickthal      (And unto him it will be said): This is for that which thy two hands have sent before, and because Allah is no oppressor of His slaves.

022:010 Rashad       This is what your hands have sent ahead for you. GOD is never unjust towards the people.

022:010 Sarwar       (They will be told), "This is the result of what your hands have wrought. God is certainly not unjust to His servants."

022:010 Shakir        This is due to what your two hands have sent before, and because Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants.

022:010 Sherali       This is because of what thy hands have sent on before, and ALLAH is not unjust to HIS servants.

022:010 Yusufali     (It will be said): "This is because of the deeds which thy hands sent forth, for verily Allah is not unjust to His servants.

022:011

022:011                   Section 2: Certainty of Divine Help

022:011 Khan          And among mankind is he who worships Allah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss.

022:011 Maulana     And among men is he who serves Allah, (standing) on the verge, so that if good befalls him he is satisfied therewith, but if a trial afflicts him he turns back headlong. He loses this world and the Hereafter. That is a manifest loss.

022:011 Pickthal      And among mankind is he who worshippeth Allah upon a narrow marge so that if good befalleth him he is content therewith, but if a trial befalleth him, he falleth away utterly. He loseth both the world and the Hereafter. That is the sheer loss.

022:011 Rashad       Among the people there is the one who worships GOD conditionally. If things go his way, he is content. But if some adversity befalls him, he makes an about-face. Thus, he loses both this life and the Hereafter. Such is the real loss.

022:011 Sarwar       Some people worship God to achieve worldly gains. They are confident when they are prosperous, but when they face hardships they turn away from (worship). They are lost in this life and will be lost in the life to come. Such loss is indeed destructive.

022:011 Shakir        And among men is he who serves Allah (standing) on the verge, so that if good befalls him he is satisfied therewith, but if a trial afflict him he turns back headlong; he loses this world as well as the hereafter; that is a manifest loss.

022:011 Sherali       And among men is he who serves ALLAH, standing, as it were, on the verge. Then if good befalls him, he is content therewith; and if there befalls him a trial, he returns to his former way. He loses both this world as well as the Hereafter. That indeed is a manifest loss.

022:011 Yusufali     There are among men some who serve Allah, as it were, on the verge: if good befalls them, they are, therewith, well content; but if a trial comes to them, they turn on their faces: they lose both this world and the Hereafter: that is loss for all to see!

022:012

022:012 Khan          He calls besides Allah unto that which hurts him not, nor profits him. That is a straying far away.

022:012 Maulana     He calls besides Allah on that which harms him not, nor benefits him; that is straying far.

022:012 Pickthal      He calleth, beside Allah, unto that which hurteth him not nor benefiteth him. That is the far error.

022:012 Rashad       He idolizes beside GOD what possesses no power to harm him or benefit him; such is the real straying.

022:012 Sarwar       They worship things instead of God which can neither harm them nor benefit them. This is indeed to stray far away from the right path.

022:012 Shakir        He calls besides Allah upon that which does not harm him and that which does not profit him, that is the great straying.

022:012 Sherali       He calls beside ALLAH on that which can neither harm him nor benefit him. That is indeed straying far away.

022:012 Yusufali     They call on such deities, besides Allah, as can neither hurt nor profit them: that is straying far indeed (from the Way)!

022:013

022:013 Khan          He calls unto him whose harm is nearer than his profit; certainly, and evil Maula (patron) and certainly an evil friend!

022:013 Maulana     He calls on him whose harm is nearer than his benefit. Certainly an evil guardian and an evil associate!

022:013 Pickthal      He calleth unto him whose harm is nearer than his benefit; verily an evil patron and verily an evil friend!

022:013 Rashad       He idolizes what is more apt to harm him than benefit him. What a miserable lord! What a miserable companion!

022:013 Sarwar       Their worship of such things, in which there is no hope for any benefit, can only harm them. How terrible is such a guardian and companion!

022:013 Shakir        He calls upon him whose harm is nearer than his profit; evil certainly is the guardian and evil certainly is the associate.

022:013 Sherali       He calls on him whose harm is much more likely than his benefit. Evil indeed is the patron, and evil indeed the associate.

022:013 Yusufali     (Perhaps) they call on one whose hurt is nearer than his profit: evil, indeed, is the patron, and evil the companion (or help)!

022:014

022:014 Khan          Truly, Allah will admit those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds (according to the Qur'an and the Sunnah) to Gardens underneath which rivers flow (in Paradise). Verily, Allah does what He wills.

022:014 Maulana     Surely Allah causes those who believe and do good deeds to enter Gardens wherein flow rivers. Allah indeed does what He pleases.

022:014 Pickthal      Lo! Allah causeth those who believe and do good works to enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Lo! Allah doth what He intendeth.

022:014 Rashad       GOD admits those who believe and lead a righteous life into gardens with flowing streams. Everything is in accordance with GOD's will.

022:014 Sarwar       God will admit the righteously striving believers to the gardens wherein streams flow. God has all the power to do whatever He wants.

022:014 Shakir        Surely Allah will cause those who believe and do good deeds to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow, surely Allah does what He pleases.

022:014 Sherali       Verily, ALLAH will cause those who believe and do good deeds to enter Gardens beneath which streams flow; surely, ALLAH does what HE pleases.

022:014 Yusufali     Verily Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds, to Gardens, beneath which rivers flow: for Allah carries out all that He plans.

022:015

022:015 Khan          Whoever thinks that Allah will not help him (Muhammad SAW) in this world and in the Hereafter, let him stretch out a rope to the ceiling and let him strangle himself. Then let him see whether his plan will remove that whereat he rages!

022:015 Maulana     Whoever thinks that Allah will not assist him in this life and the Hereafter, let him raise (himself) by some means to the heaven, then let him cut (it) off, then let him see if his plan will take away that at which he is enraged.

022:015 Pickthal      Whoso is wont to think (through envy) that Allah will not give him (Muhammad) victory in the world and the Hereafter (and is enraged at the thought of his victory), let him stretch a rope up to the roof (of his dwelling), and let him hang himself. Then let him see whether his strategy dispelleth that whereat he rageth!.

022:015 Rashad       If anyone thinks that GOD cannot support him in this life and in the Hereafter, let him turn completely to (his creator in) heaven, and sever (his dependence on anyone else). He will then see that this plan eliminates anything that bothers him.

022:015 Sarwar       Those who thought that God would never grant victory to (Muhammad), in this world nor in the life hereafter (and now that he is victorious) should hang themselves by the necks from the ceiling, then cut the rope and see if this can do away with what has enraged them.

022:015 Shakir        Whoever thinks that Allah will not assist him in this life and the hereafter, let him stretch a rope to the ceiling, then let him cut (it) off, then let him see if his struggle will take away that at which he is enraged.

022:015 Sherali       Whoso thinks that ALLAH will not help him in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch a rope to heaven, and let him cut it off. Then let him see if his device can remove that which enrages him.

022:015 Yusufali     If any think that Allah will not help him (His Messenger) in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch out a rope to the ceiling and cut (himself) off: then let him see whether his plan will remove that which enrages (him)!

022:016

022:016 Khan          Thus have We sent it (this Qur'an) down (to Muhammad SAW) as clear signs, evidences and proofs, and surely, Allah guides whom He wills.

022:016 Maulana     And thus have We revealed it, clear arguments, and Allah guides whom He will.

022:016 Pickthal      Thus We reveal it as plain revelations, and verily Allah guideth whom He will.

022:016 Rashad       We have thus revealed clear revelations herein, then GOD guides whoever wills (to be guided).

022:016 Sarwar       We have revealed the Quran which contains authoritative verses. God guides only those whom He wants.

022:016 Shakir        And thus have We revealed it, being clear arguments, and because Allah guides whom He intends.

022:016 Sherali       And thus have WE sent down the Qur'an as manifest Signs, and surely ALLAH guides whom HE desires.

022:016 Yusufali     Thus have We sent down Clear Signs; and verily Allah doth guide whom He will!

022:017

022:017 Khan          Verily, those who believe (in Allah and in His Messenger Muhammad SAW), and those who are Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the Magians, and those who worship others besides Allah, truly, Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Verily! Allah is Witness over all things.

022:017 Maulana     Those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and the polytheists -- surely Allah will decide between them on the day of Resurrection. Surely Allah is Witness over all things.

022:017 Pickthal      Lo! those who believe (this revelation), and those who are Jews, and the Sabaeans and the Christians and the Magians and the idolaters - Lo! Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Allah is Witness over all things.

022:017 Rashad       Those who believe, those who are Jewish, the converts, the Christians, the Zoroastrians, and the idol worshipers, GOD is the One who will judge among them on the Day of Resurrection. GOD witnesses all things.

022:017 Sarwar       On the Day of Judgment, God will make truth and falsehood clearly distinct from each other to the believers, the Jews, the Sabeans, the Christian, the Zoroastrians, and the Pagans on the Day of Judgment. God is a Witness to all things.

022:017 Shakir        Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associate (others with Allah)-- surely Allah will decide between them on the day of resurrection; surely Allah is a witness over all things.

But there are many (men) on whom the punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allah disgraces, none can honour him. Verily! Allah does what He wills.

022:018 Maulana     Seest thou not that to Allah makes submission whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth, and the sun and the moon and the starts, and the mountains and the trees, and the animals and many of the people? And many there are to whom chastisement is due. And he whom Allah abases, none can give him honour. Surely Allah does what He pleases.

He whom Allah scorneth, there is none to give him honour. Lo! Allah doeth what He will.

022:018 Rashad       Do you not realize that to GOD prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the animals, and many people? Many others among the people are committed to doom. Whomever GOD shames, none will honor him. Everything is in accordance with GOD's will.

But many people deserve His torment. No one can give honor to whomever God has insulted. God has all the power to do what He wants.

022:018 Shakir        Do you not see that Allah is He, Whom obeys whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth, and the sun and the moon and the stars, and the mountains and the trees, and the animals and many of the people; and many there are against whom chastisement has become necessary; and whomsoever Allah abases, there is none who can make him honorable; surely Allah does what He pleases.

022:018 Yusufali     Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth,- the sun, the moon, the stars; the hills, the trees, the animals; and a great number among mankind? But a great number are (also) such as are fit for Punishment: and such as Allah shall disgrace,- None can raise to honour: for Allah carries out all that He wills.

022:030 Maulana     That (shall be so). And whoever respects the sacred ordinances of Allah, it is good for him with his Lord. And the cattle are made lawful for you, except that which is recited to you, so shun the filth of the idols and shun false words,

022:030 Pickthal      That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the sacred things of Allah, it will be well for him in the sight of his Lord. The cattle are lawful unto you save that which hath been told you. So shun the filth of idols, and shun lying speech,

022:030 Rashad       Those who reverence the rites decreed by GOD have deserved a good reward at their Lord. All livestock is made lawful for your food, except for those specifically prohibited for you. You shall avoid the abomination of idol worship, and avoid bearing false witness.

022:031 Sarwar       As the upright servants of God, do not consider anything equal to God. To consider things equal to God is like one falling from the sky who is snatched away by the birds or carried away by a strong wind to a far distant place.

022:031 Shakir        Being upright for Allah, not associating aught with Him and whoever associates (others) with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from on high, then the birds snatch him away or the wind carries him off to a far-distant place.

022:032 Khan          Thus it is [what has been mentioned in the above said Verses (27, 28, 29, 30, 31) is an obligation that mankind owes to Allah]. And whosoever honours the Symbols of Allah, then it is truly from the piety of the heart.

022:032 Maulana     That (shall be so). And whoever respects the ordinances of Allah, this is surely from the piety of hearts.

022:032 Pickthal      That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the offerings consecrated to Allah, it surely is from devotion of the hearts,

022:032 Rashad       Indeed, those who reverence the rites decreed by GOD demonstrate the righteousness of their hearts.

022:032 Sarwar       To respect the symbols of God is the sign of a pious heart.

022:036 Khan          And the Budn (cows, oxen, or camels driven to be offered as sacrifices by the pilgrims at the sanctuary of Makkah.) We have made for you as among the Symbols of Allah, therein you have much good. So mention the Name of Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines (for sacrifice). Then, when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat thereof, and feed the beggar who does not ask (men), and the beggar who asks (men). Thus have We made them subject to you that you may be grateful.

022:036 Maulana     And the camels, We have made them of the signs appointed by Allah for you -- for you therein is much good. So mention the name of Allah on them standing in a row. Then when they fall down on their sides, eat of them and feed the contented one and the beggar. Thus have We made them subservient to you that you may be grateful.

022:036 Pickthal      And the camels! We have appointed them among the ceremonies of Allah. Therein ye have much good. So mention the name of Allah over them when they are drawn up in lines. Then when their flanks fall (dead), eat thereof and feed the beggar and the suppliant. Thus have We made them subject unto you, that haply ye may give thanks.

022:036 Rashad       The animal offerings are among the rites decreed by GOD for your own good. You shall mention GOD's name on them while they are standing in line. Once they are offered for sacrifice, you shall eat therefrom and feed the poor and the needy. This is why we subdued them for you, that you may show your appreciation.

022:036 Sarwar       For you We have made the sacrificial camel one of the reminders of God. It also has other benefits for you. Consecrate it with the Name of God when it is steadily standing. When it is slaughtered, consume its flesh and give part of it to the needy who do and those do not ask for help from others. Thus We have made the camel subservient to you so that perhaps you may give thanks.

022:036 Shakir        And (as for) the camels, We have made them of the signs of the religion of Allah for you; for you therein is much good; therefore mention the name of Allah on them as they stand in a row, then when they fall down eat of them and feed the poor man who is contented and the beggar; thus have We made them subservient to you, that you may be grateful.

022:036 Sherali       And among the sacred Signs of ALLAH WE have appointed for you the sacrificial camels. In them there is much good for you. So mention the name of ALLAH over them as they stand tied up in rows. And when they fall down dead on their sides, eat thereof and feed him who is needy but contented and him also who supplicates. Thus have WE subjected them to you, that you may be grateful.

022:036 Yusufali     The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment, and such as beg with due humility: thus have We made animals subject to you, that ye may be grateful.

022:037

022:037 Khan          It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him. Thus have We made them subject to you that you may magnify Allah for His Guidance to you. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad SAW) to the Muhsinun (doers of good).

022:037 Maulana     Not their flesh, nor their blood, reaches Allah, but to Him is acceptable observance of duty on your part. Thus has He made them subservient to you, that you may magnify Allah for guiding you aright. And give good news to those who do good (to others).

022:037 Pickthal      Their flesh and their food reach not Allah, but the devotion from you reacheth Him. Thus have We made them subject unto you that ye may magnify Allah that He hath guided you. And give good tidings (O Muhammad) to the good.

022:037 Rashad       Neither their meat, nor their blood reaches GOD. What reaches Him is your righteousness. He has subdued them for you, that you may show your appreciation by glorifying GOD for guiding you. Give good news to the charitable.

022:037 Sarwar       It is not the flesh and blood of your sacrifice that pleases God. What pleases God is your piety. God has made subservient to you the sacrificial animals so that perhaps you will glorify Him; He is guiding you. (Muhammad), give the glad news (of God's mercy) to the righteous people.

022:037 Shakir        There does not reach Allah their flesh nor their blood, but to Him is acceptable the guarding (against evil) on your part; thus has He made them subservient to you, that you may magnify Allah because He has guided you aright; and give good news to those who do good (to others).

022:037 Sherali       Their flesh reaches not ALLAH, nor does their blood, but it is your righteousness that reaches HIM. Thus HE has subjected them to you, that you may glorify ALLAH for HIS guiding you. And give glad tidings to those who do good.

022:037 Yusufali     It is not their meat nor their blood, that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you, that ye may glorify Allah for His Guidance to you and proclaim the good news to all who do right.

022:038 Pickthal      Lo! Allah defendeth those who are true. Lo! Allah loveth not each treacherous ingrate.

022:038 Rashad       GOD defends those who believe. GOD does not love any betrayer, unappreciative.

022:038 Sarwar       God defends the believers but He does not love any of the treacherous, ungrateful ones.

022:039 Maulana     Permission (to fight) is given to those on whom war is made, because they are oppressed. And surely Allah is Able to assist them --

022:039 Pickthal      Sanction is given unto those who fight because they have been wronged; and Allah is indeed Able to give them victory;

022:039 Rashad       Permission is granted to those who are being persecuted, since injustice has befallen them, and GOD is certainly able to support them.

022:039 Sarwar       Permission to take up arms is hereby granted to those who are attacked; they have suffered injustice. God has all the power to give victory

022:039 Shakir        Permission (to fight) is given to those upon whom war is made because they are oppressed, and most surely Allah is well able to assist them;

022:039 Sherali       Permission to take up arms is given to those against whom war is made, because they have been wronged and ALLAH, indeed, has power to help them. -

022:039 Yusufali     To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged;- and verily, Allah is most powerful for their aid;-

Verily, Allah will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.

022:040 Maulana     Those who are driven from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah. And if Allah did not repel some people by others, cloisters, and churches, and synagogues, and mosques in which Allah’s name is much remembered, would have been pulled down.

022:040 Pickthal      Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah - For had it not been for Allah's repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft mentioned, would assuredly have been pulled down. Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty -

022:040 Rashad       They were evicted from their homes unjustly, for no reason other than saying, "Our Lord is GOD." If it were not for GOD's supporting of some people against others, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and masjids - where the name of GOD is commemorated frequently - would have been destroyed. Absolutely, GOD supports those who support Him. GOD is Powerful, Almighty.

022:040 Sarwar       to those who were unjustly expelled from their homes only because they said, "God is our Lord." Had it not been for God's repelling some people through the might of the others, the monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques in which God is very often worshipped would have been utterly destroyed. God shall certainly help those who help Him. He is All-powerful and Majestic.

022:040 Shakir        Those who have been expelled from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah. And had there not been Allah's repelling some people by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques in which Allah's name is much remembered; and surely Allah will help him who helps His cause; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.

022:040 Sherali       Those who have been driven out from their homes unjustly, only because they said, `Our Lord is ALLAH.' And if ALLAH had not repelled some people by means of others, cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of ALLAH is oft remembered, would surely have been destroyed.

022:040 Yusufali     (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, "our Lord is Allah". Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure.

022:044 Pickthal      (And) the dwellers in Midian. And Moses was denied; but I indulged the disbelievers a long while, then I seized them, and how (terrible) was My abhorrence!

022:044 Rashad       And the dwellers of Midyan. Moses was also rejected. I led all those people on, then I called them to account; how (devastating) was My requital!

022:044 Yusufali     And the Companions of the Madyan People; and Moses was rejected (in the same way). But I granted respite to the Unbelievers, and (only) after that did I punish them: but how (terrible) was my rejection (of them)!

022:045

022:045 Khan          And many a township have We destroyed while it was given to wrong-doing, so that it lies in ruins (up to this day), and (many) a deserted well and lofty castles!

022:045 Maulana     How many a town We destroyed while it was iniquitous, so it is fallen down upon its roofs; and (how many) a deserted well and palace raised high!

022:045 Pickthal      How many a township have We destroyed while it was sinful, so that it lieth (to this day) in ruins, and (how many) a deserted well and lofty tower!

022:045 Rashad       Many a community we have annihilated because of their wickedness. They ended up in ruins, stilled wells, and great empty mansions.

022:045 Sarwar       How many were the unjust dwellers of the towns that We destroyed. From their trellises to their lofty mansions, all were toppled and their wells were abandoned.

022:046 Pickthal      Have they not travelled in the land, and have they hearts wherewith to feel and ears wherewith to hear? For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind.

022:046 Rashad       Did they not roam the earth, then use their minds to understand, and use their ears to hear? Indeed, the real blindness is not the blindness of the eyes, but the blindness of the hearts inside the chests.

022:046 Sarwar       Have they not travelled (sufficiently) in the land to have understanding hearts and listening ears? It is their hearts which are blind, not their ears.

022:046 Shakir        Have they not travelled in the land so that they should have hearts with which to understand, or ears with which to hear? For surely it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.

022:046 Sherali       Have they not traveled in the land, so that they may have hearts wherewith to understand, or ears wherewith to hear? For, surely, it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.

022:052 Maulana     And We never sent a messenger or a prophet before thee but when he desired, the devil made a suggestion respecting his desire; but Allah annuls that which the devil casts, then does Allah establish His messages. And Allah is Knowing, Wise --

022:052 Pickthal      Never sent We a messenger or a prophet before thee but when He recited (the message) Satan proposed (opposition) in respect of that which he recited thereof. But Allah abolisheth that which Satan proposeth. Then Allah establisheth His revelations. Allah is Knower, Wise;

022:052 Rashad       We did not send before you any messenger, nor a prophet, without having the devil interfere in his wishes. GOD then nullifies what the devil has done. GOD perfects His revelations. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.

022:052 Sarwar       Satan would try to tamper with the desires of every Prophet or Messenger whom We sent. Then God would remove Satan's temptations and strengthen His revelations. God is All-knowing and All-wise.

022:052 Sherali       Never did WE send a Messenger or a Prophet before thee, but when he sought to attain his object, Satan put obstacles in the way of what he sought after. But ALLAH removes the obstacles that are placed by Satan. Then ALLAH firmly establishes HIS Signs. And ALLAH is All-Knowing, Wise.

022:072 Shakir        And when Our clear communications are recited to them you will find denial on the faces of those who disbelieve; they almost spring upon those who recite to them Our communications. Say: Shall I inform you of what is worse than this? The fire; Allah has promised it to those who disbelieve; and how evil the resort!

022:072 Sherali       And when Our clear Signs are recited unto them, thou seest on the faces of those who disbelieve, manifest signs of displeasure. They would well-nigh attack those who recite Our Signs to them. Say, `Shall I tell you of something worse than that?  It is the Fire !  ALLAH has promised it to those who disbelieve. And an evil destination it is !'

022:072 Yusufali     When Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them, thou wilt notice a denial on the faces of the Unbelievers! they nearly attack with violence those who rehearse Our Signs to them. Say, "Shall I tell you of something (far) worse than these Signs? It is the Fire (of Hell)! Allah has promised it to the Unbelievers! and evil is that destination!”

022:073

022:073                   Section 10: Polytheism will be uprooted

022:073 Khan          O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought.

022:073 Maulana     O people, a parable is set forth, so listen to it. Surely those whom you call upon besides Allah cannot create a fly, though they should all gather for it. And if the fly carry off aught from them, they cannot take it back from it. Weak are (both) the invoker and the invoked.

022:073 Pickthal      O mankind! A similitude is coined, so pay ye heed to it: Lo! those on whom ye call beside Allah will never create a fly though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly took something from them, they could not rescue it from it. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought!

022:073 Rashad       O people, here is a parable that you must ponder carefully: the idols you set up beside GOD can never create a fly, even if they banded together to do so. Furthermore, if the fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; weak is the pursuer and the pursued.

022:073 Sarwar       People, listen to this parable: Those whom you worship instead of God do not have the power to create even a fly, even though all of them would come together for the task. If the fly was to snatch something from them they would not be able to rescue it from the fly. How feeble are such worshippers and that which they worship.

022:073 Shakir        O people! a parable is set forth, therefore listen to it: surely those whom you call upon besides Allah cannot create fly, though they should all gather for it, and should the fly snatch away anything from them, they could not take it back from i weak are the invoker and the invoked.

022:073 Sherali       O men, a similitude is set forth, so listen to it. Surely those on whom you call upon instead of ALLAH cannot create even a fly, though they should all combine together for the purpose. And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they cannot recover it therefrom. Weak, indeed, are both the seeker and the sought.

022:073 Yusufali     O men! Here is a parable set forth! listen to it! Those on whom, besides Allah, ye call, cannot create (even) a fly, if they all met together for the purpose! and if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. Feeble are those who petition and those whom they petition!

022:074 Khan          They have not estimated Allah His Rightful Estimate; Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All- Mighty.

022:075 Khan          Allah chooses Messengers from angels and from men. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.

022:075 Maulana     Allah chooses messengers from angels and for men. Surely Allah is Hearing, Seeing.

022:075 Sherali       ALLAH chooses HIS Messengers from among angels and from among men. Surely, ALLAH is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.

022:075 Yusufali     Allah chooses messengers from angels and from men for Allah is He Who hears and sees (all things).

022:076

022:076 Khan          He knows what is before them, and what is behind them. And to Allah return all matters (for decision).

022:076 Maulana     He knows what is before them and what is behind them. And to Allah are all affairs returned.

022:078

022:078 Khan          And strive hard in Allah's Cause as you ought to strive (with sincerity and with all your efforts that His Name should be superior). He has chosen you (to convey His Message of Islamic Monotheism to mankind by inviting them to His religion, Islam), and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship, it is the religion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham) (Islamic Monotheism). It is He (Allah) Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (the Qur'an), that the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) may be a witness over you and you be witnesses over mankind! So perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), give Zakat and hold fast to Allah [i.e. have confidence in Allah, and depend upon Him in all your affairs] He is your Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.), what an Excellent Maula (Patron, Lord, etc.) and what an Excellent Helper!

022:078 Maulana     And strive hard for Allah with due striving. He has chosen you and has not laid upon you any hardship in religion -- the faith of your father Abraham. He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Messenger may be a bearer of witness to you, and you may be bearers of witness to the people; so keep up your prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protector; excellent the Protector and excellent the Helper!

022:078 Pickthal      And strive for Allah with the endeavour which is His right. He hath chosen you and hath not laid upon you in religion any hardship; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He hath named you Muslims of old time and in this (Scripture), that the messenger may be a witness against you, and that ye may be witnesses against mankind. So establish worship, pay the poor-due, and hold fast to Allah. He is your Protecting friend. A blessed Patron and a blessed Helper!

022:078 Rashad       You shall strive for the cause of GOD as you should strive for His cause. He has chosen you and has placed no hardship on you in practicing your religion - the religion of your father Abraham. He is the one who named you "Submitters" originally. Thus, the messenger shall serve as a witness among you, and you shall serve as witnesses among the people. Therefore, you shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and hold fast to GOD; He is your Lord, the best Lord and the best Supporter.

022:078 Sarwar       Strive steadfastly for the Cause of God. He has chosen you but has not imposed on you hardship in your religion, the noble religion of your father, Abraham.

Be steadfast in your prayer, pay the religious tax, and seek protection from God; He is your Guardian, a gracious Guardian and Helper.

022:078 Shakir        And strive hard in (the way of) Allah, (such) a striving a is due to Him; He has chosen you and has not laid upon you an hardship in religion; the faith of your father Ibrahim; He named you Muslims before and in this, that the Messenger may be a bearer of witness to you, and you may be bearers of witness to the people; therefore keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast by Allah; He is your Guardian; how excellent the Guardian and how excellent the Helper!

022:078 Sherali       And strive in the cause of ALLAH as it behooves you to strive for it.

Therefore observe Prayer and pay the Zakaat, and hold fast to ALLAH. HE is your Protector and an Excellent Protector and an Excellent Helper !

022:078 Yusufali     And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive, (with sincerity and under discipline). He has chosen you, and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims, both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind!
