025:001

025:001                   Section 1: A Warner for all Nations

025:001 Khan          Blessed be He Who sent down the criterion (of right and wrong, i.e. this Qur'an) to His slave (Muhammad SAW) that he may be a warner to the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns).

025:001 Maulana     Blessed is He Who sent down the Discrimination upon His servant that he might be a warner to the nations --

025:001 Pickthal      Blessed is He Who hath revealed unto His slave the Criterion (of right and wrong), that he may be a warner to the peoples.

025:001 Rashad       Most blessed is the One who revealed the Statute Book to His servant, so he can serve as a warner to the whole world.

025:001 Sarwar       Blessed is He who has revealed the criteria (for discerning truth from falsehood) to His servant so that He could warn mankind.

025:001 Shakir        Blessed is He Who sent down the Furqan upon His servant that he may be a warner to the nations;

025:001 Sherali       Blessed is HE who has sent down Al-Furqán to HIS servant, that he may be a Warner to all the worlds -

025:001 Yusufali     Blessed is He who sent down the criterion to His servant, that it may be an admonition to all creatures;-

025:002

025:002 Khan          He to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and Who has begotten no son (children or offspring) and for Whom there is no partner in the dominion. He has created everything, and has measured it exactly according to its due measurements.

025:002 Maulana     He, Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and Who did not take to Himself a son, and Who has no associate in the kingdom, and Who created everything, then ordained for it a measure.

025:002 Pickthal      He unto Whom belongeth the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, He hath chosen no son nor hath He any partner in the Sovereignty. He hath created everything and hath meted out for it a measure.

025:002 Rashad       The One to whom belongs all sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He never had a son, nor does He have any partners in sovereignty. He created everything in exact measure; He precisely designed everything.

025:002 Sarwar       To Him belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He has not begotten any sons, nor does He have any partner in His kingdom. He has created all things with precisely accurate planning.

025:002 Shakir        He, Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and Who did not take to Himself a son, and Who has no associate in the kingdom, and Who created everything, then ordained for it a measure.

025:002 Sherali       HE to Whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And HE has taken unto Himself no son, and has no partner in the Kingdom, and HE has created everything, and has determined its proper measure.

025:002 Yusufali     He to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: no son has He begotten, nor has He a partner in His dominion: it is He who created all things, and ordered them in due proportions.

025:003

025:003 Khan          Yet they have taken besides Him other aliha (gods) that created nothing but are themselves created, and possess neither hurt nor benefit for themselves, and possess no power (of causing) death, nor (of giving) life, nor of raising the dead.

025:003 Maulana     And they take besides Him gods who create naught, while they are themselves created, and they control for themselves no harm nor profit, and they control not death, nor life, nor raising to life.

025:003 Pickthal      Yet they choose beside Him other gods who create naught but are themselves created, and possess not hurt nor profit for themselves, and possess not death nor life, nor power to raise the dead.

025:003 Rashad       Yet, they set up beside Him gods who do not create anything - they themselves are created - and who possess no power to even harm or benefit themselves, nor do they possess any power to control life, or death, or resurrection.

025:003 Sarwar       Yet they have chosen for themselves other deities besides Him, who do not create anything but rather are themselves created, who have no power over their own benefits, or trouble, and who have no control over life, death, and resurrection.

025:003 Shakir        And they have taken besides Him gods, who do not create anything while they are themselves created, and they control not for themselves any harm or profit, and they control not death nor life, nor raising (the dead) to life.

025:003 Sherali       Yet they have taken beside HIM gods, who create nothing but are themselves created, and who have no power to harm or benefit themselves, nor have they any power over death or life or Resurrection.

025:003 Yusufali     Yet have they taken, besides him, gods that can create nothing but are themselves created; that have no control of hurt or good to themselves; nor can they control death nor life nor resurrection.

025:004

025:004 Khan          Those who disbelieve say: "This (the Qur'an) is nothing but a lie that he (Muhammad SAW) has invented, and others have helped him at it, so that they have produced an unjust wrong (thing) and a lie."

025:004 Maulana     And those who disbelieve say: This is nothing but a lie, which he has forged, and other people have helped him at it. So indeed they have brought an iniquity and a falsehood.

025:004 Pickthal      Those who disbelieve say: This is naught but a lie that he hath invented, and other folk have helped him with it, so that they have produced a slander and a lie.

025:004 Rashad       Those who disbelieved said, "This is a fabrication that he produced, with the help of some other people." They have uttered a blasphemy and a falsehood.

025:004 Sarwar       The unbelievers say, "This (Quran) is no more than a slanderous statement which h,e (Muhammad), with the help of some other people, has falsely invented." Certainly, this statement is unjust and sinful.

025:004 Shakir        And those who disbelieve say: This is nothing but a lie which he has forged, and other people have helped him at it; so indeed they have done injustice and (uttered) a falsehood.

025:004 Sherali       And those who disbelieve say, `It is naught but a lie which he has forged, and other people have helped him with it.' Indeed, they have perpetrated a great injustice and a great falsehood.

025:004 Yusufali     But the misbelievers say: "Naught is this but a lie which he has forged, and others have helped him at it." In truth it is they who have put forward an iniquity and a falsehood.

025:005

025:005 Khan          And they say: "Tales of the ancients, which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon."

025:005 Maulana     And they say: Stories of the ancients, which he has got written, so they are read out to him morning and evening!

025:005 Pickthal      And they say: Fables of the men of old which he hath had written down so that they are dictated to him morn and evening.

025:005 Rashad       They also said, "Tales from the past that he wrote down; they were dictated to him day and night."

025:005 Sarwar       They have also said, "It ,(the Quran), is only ancient legends, which were written down while they were dictated to him in the mornings and the evenings".

025:005 Shakir        And they say: The stories of the ancients-- he has got them written-- so these are read out to him morning and evening.

025:005 Sherali       And they say, `These are fables of the ancient; and he has got them written down and they are read out to him morning and evening.'

025:005 Yusufali     And they say: "Tales of the ancients, which he has caused to be written: and they are dictated before him morning and evening.”

025:006

025:006 Khan          Say: "It (this Qur'an) has been sent down by Him (Allah) (the Real Lord of the heavens and earth) Who knows the secret of the heavens and the earth. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

025:006 Maulana     Say: He has revealed it, Who knows the secret of the heavens and the earth. Surely He is ever Forgiving, Merciful.

025:006 Pickthal      Say (unto them, O Muhammad): He who knoweth the secret of the heavens and the earth hath revealed it. Lo! He ever is Forgiving, Merciful.

025:006 Rashad       Say, "This was revealed by the One who knows the Secret in the heavens and the earth. He is Forgiving, Most Merciful."

025:006 Sarwar       (Muhammad), tell them, "The One who knows all the secrets of the heavens and the earth has revealed it; He is All-forgiving and All-merciful."

025:006 Shakir        Say: He has revealed it Who knows the secret in the heavens and the earth; surely He is ever Forgiving, Merciful.

025:006 Sherali       Say, `HE, Who knows every secret of the heavens and the earth, has revealed it. Verily, HE is the Most Forgiving, Merciful.'

025:006 Yusufali     Say: "The (Qur'an) was sent down by Him who knows the mystery (that is) in the heavens and the earth: verily He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

025:007

025:007 Khan          And they say: "Why does this Messenger (Muhammad SAW) eat food, and walk about in the markets (like ourselves). Why is not an angel sent down to him to be a warner with him?

025:007 Maulana     And they say: What a Messenger is this? He eats food and goes about in the markets. Why has not an angel been sent down to him to be a warner with him?

025:007 Pickthal      And they say: What aileth this messenger (of Allah) that he eateth food and walketh in the markets? Why is not an angel sent down unto him, to be a warner with him.

025:007 Rashad       And they said, "How come this messenger eats the food and walks in the markets? If only an angel could come down with him, to serve with him as a preacher!"

025:007 Sarwar       They say, "Why does this Messenger eat food, and walk in the streets? Why has not an angel been sent to him so that they could preach the message together?.

025:007 Shakir        And they say: What is the matter with this Messenger that he eats food and goes about in the markets; why has not an angel been sent down to him, so that he should have been a warner with him?

025:007 Sherali       And they say, `What sort of Messenger is this that he eats food, and walks in the streets?  Why has not an angel been sent down to him that he might be a warner with him?

025:007 Yusufali     And they say: "What sort of a messenger is this, who eats food, and walks through the streets? Why has not an angel been sent down to him to give admonition with him?

025:008

025:008 Khan          "Or (why) has not a treasure been granted to him, or why has he not a garden whereof he may eat?" And the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong- doers, etc.) say: "You follow none but a man bewitched."

025:008 Maulana     Or a treasure given to him, or a garden from which to eat? And the evildoers say: You follow but a man bewitched!

025:008 Pickthal      Or (why is not) treasure thrown down unto him, or why hath he not a paradise from whence to eat? And the evil-doers say: Ye are but following a man bewitched.

025:008 Rashad       Or, "If only a treasure could be given to him!" Or, "If only he could possess an orchard from which he eats!" The transgressors also said, "You are following a bewitched man."

025:008 Sarwar       Why has a treasure not been laid out for him or a garden from which he could eat been given to him." The unjust ones say, "You are merely following a bewitched person".

025:008 Shakir        Or (why is not) a treasure sent down to him, or he is made to have a garden from which he should eat? And the unjust say: You do not follow any but a man deprived of reason.

025:008 Sherali       `Or a treasure should have been sent down to him, or he should have had a garden to eat therefrom.' And the wrongdoers say, `You follow but a man bewitched.'

025:008 Yusufali     "Or (Why) has not a treasure been bestowed on him, or why has he (not) a garden for enjoyment?" The wicked say: "Ye follow none other than a man bewitched.”

025:009

025:009 Khan          See how they coin similitudes for you, so they have gone astray, and they cannot find a (Right) Path.

025:009 Maulana     See what parables they set forth for thee -- they have gone astray, so they cannot find a way.

025:009 Pickthal      See how they coin similitudes for thee, so that they are all astray and cannot find a road!

025:009 Rashad       Note how they called you all kinds of names, and how this led them astray, never to find their way back.

025:009 Sarwar       Look at their various views about you! They have gone astray and are not able to find the right path.

025:009 Shakir        See what likenesses do they apply to you, so they have gone astray, therefore they shall not be able to find a way.

025:009 Sherali       See how they coin similitudes for thee !  Thus they have gone astray and cannot find a way.

025:009 Yusufali     See what kinds of comparisons they make for thee! But they have gone astray, and never a way will they be able to find!

025:010

025:010                   Section 2: Truth of the Warning

025:010 Khan          Blessed be He Who, if He will, will assign you better than (all) that, - Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) and will assign you palaces (i.e. in Paradise).

025:010 Maulana     Blessed is He Who if He please, will give thee what is better than this: Gardens wherein flow rivers. And He will give thee palaces.

025:010 Pickthal      Blessed is He Who, if He will, will assign thee better than (all) that - Gardens underneath which rivers flow - and will assign thee mansions.

025:010 Rashad       Most blessed is the One who can, if He wills, give you much better than their demands - gardens with flowing streams, and many mansions.

025:010 Sarwar       Blessed is He who could give you palaces and gardens wherein streams would flow, far better than what they want you to have.

025:010 Shakir        Blessed is He Who, if He please, will give you what is better than this, gardens beneath which rivers flow, and He will give you palaces.

025:010 Sherali       Blessed is HE Who, if HE please, will assign to thee better than all that - gardens through which streams flow - and will also assign to thee palaces.

025:010 Yusufali     Blessed is He who, if that were His will, could give thee better (things) than those,- Gardens beneath which rivers flow; and He could give thee palaces (secure to dwell in).

025:011

025:011 Khan          Nay, they deny the Hour (the Day of Resurrection), and for those who deny the Hour, We have prepared a flaming Fire (i.e. Hell).

025:011 Maulana     But they deny the Hour, and We have prepared a burning Fire for him who denies the Hour.

025:011 Pickthal      Nay, but they deny (the coming of) the Hour, and for those who deny (the coming of) the Hour We have prepared a flame.

025:011 Rashad       In fact, they have disbelieved in the Hour (Day of Resurrection), and we have prepared for those who disbelieve in the Hour a flaming Hell.

025:011 Sarwar       They deny the Hour of Doom so We have prepared for them a burning fire.

025:011 Shakir        But they reject the hour, and We have prepared a burning fire for him who rejects the hour.

025:011 Sherali       Nay, they deny the Hour, and for those who deny the Hour, WE have prepared a blazing fire.

025:011 Yusufali     Nay they deny the hour (of the judgment to come): but We have prepared a blazing fire for such as deny the hour:

025:012

025:012 Khan          When it (Hell) sees them from a far place, they will hear its raging and its roaring.

025:012 Maulana     When it sees them from a far-off place, they will hear its raging and roaring.

025:012 Pickthal      When it seeth them from afar, they hear the crackling and the roar thereof.

025:012 Rashad       When it sees them from afar, they will hear its rage and fuming.

025:012 Sarwar       Even if they were to see (this fire) from a distant place, they would only listen to its raging and roaring.

025:012 Shakir        When it shall come into their sight from a distant place, they shall hear its vehement raging and roaring.

025:012 Sherali       When it sees them from a place far-off, they will hear its raging and roaring.

025:012 Yusufali     When it sees them from a place fAr off, they will hear its fury and its ranging sigh.

025:013

025:013 Khan          And when they shall be thrown into a narrow place thereof, chained together, they will exclaim therein for destruction.

025:013 Maulana     And when they are cast into a narrow place thereof in chains, they will there pray for destruction.

025:013 Pickthal      And when they are flung into a narrow place thereof, chained together, they pray for destruction there.

025:013 Rashad       And when they are thrown into it, through a narrow place, all shackled, they will declare their remorse.

025:013 Sarwar       When they are thrown, bound, into a narrow place therein, then only will they wish for their death.

025:013 Shakir        And when they are cast into a narrow place in it, bound, they shall there call out for destruction.

025:013 Sherali       And when they are thrown into a narrow place thereof, chained together, they will pray there for destruction.

025:013 Yusufali     And when they are cast, bound together into a constricted place therein, they will pLead for destruction there and then!

025:014

025:014 Khan          Exclaim not today for one destruction, but exclaim for many destructions.

025:014 Maulana     Pray not this day for destruction once but pray for destruction again and again.

025:014 Pickthal      Pray not that day for one destruction, but pray for many destructions!

025:014 Rashad       You will not declare just a single remorse, on that day; you will suffer through a great number of remorses.

025:014 Sarwar       They will be told, "Do not pray to die only once but pray to die many times."

025:014 Shakir        Call not this day for one destruction, but call for destructions many.

025:014 Sherali       `Pray not this day for one destruction, but pray for many destructions,'

025:014 Yusufali     "This day plead not for a single destruction: plead for destruction oft-repeated!”

025:015

025:015 Khan          Say: (O Muhammad SAW) "Is that (torment) better or the Paradise of Eternity promised to the Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons - see V.2:2)?" It will be theirs as a reward and as a final destination.

025:015 Maulana     Say: Is this better or the Garden Perpetuity, which the dutiful are promised? That is a reward and a resort for them.

025:015 Pickthal      Say: Is that (doom) better or the Garden of Immortality which is promised unto those who ward off (evil)? It will be their reward and journey's end.

025:015 Rashad       Say, "Is this better or the eternal Paradise that is promised for the righteous? It is their well deserved reward; a well deserved destiny."

025:015 Sarwar       (Muhammad), ask them, "Is what you want better or the eternal garden promised to the pious ones as their reward and dwelling?

025:015 Shakir        Say: Is this better or the abiding garden which those who guard (against evil) are promised? That shall be a reward and a resort for them.

025:015 Sherali       Say, `Is that better or the Garden of Eternity, which is promised to the righteous?  It will be their reward and ultimate resort.'

025:015 Yusufali     Say: "Is that best, or the eternal garden, promised to the righteous? for them, that is a reward as well as a goal (of attainment).

025:016

025:016 Khan          For them there will be therein all that they desire, and they will abide (there forever). It is a promise binding upon your Lord that must be fulfilled.

025:016 Maulana     For them therein is what they desire, to abide. It is a promise to be prayed for from thy Lord.

025:016 Pickthal      Therein abiding, they have all that they desire. It is for thy Lord a promise that must be fulfilled.

025:016 Rashad       They get anything they wish therein, forever. This is your Lord's irrevocable promise.

025:016 Sarwar       Therein they will eternally have whatever they want. This is a binding promise from your Lord."

025:016 Shakir        They shall have therein what they desire abiding (in it); it is a promise which it is proper to be prayed for from your Lord.

025:016 Sherali       They will have therein whatsoever they desire, abiding therein for ever. It is a promise binding upon thy Lord, and to be always prayed for from HIM.

025:016 Yusufali     "For them there will be therein all that they wish for: they will dwell (there) for aye: A promise to be prayed for from thy Lord.”

025:017

025:017 Khan          And on the Day when He will gather them together and that which they worship besides Allah [idols, angels, pious men, saints, 'Iesa (Jesus) - son of Maryam (Mary), etc.]. He will say: "Was it you who misled these My slaves or did they (themselves) stray from the (Right) Path?"

025:017 Maulana     And on the day when He will gather them, and that which they serve besides Allah, He will say: Was it you who led astray these My servants, or did they themselves stray from the path?

025:017 Pickthal      And on the day when He will assemble them and that which they worship instead of Allah and will say: Was it ye who misled these my slaves or did they (themselves) wander from the way?

025:017 Rashad       On the day when He summons them, together with the idols they had set up beside GOD, He will say, "Have you misled these servants of Mine, or did they go astray on their own?"

025:017 Sarwar       On the day when the unbelievers and whatever they had been worshipping besides God will be resurrected, He will ask the idols, "Did you mislead My servants or did they themselves go astray from the right path?"

025:017 Shakir        And on the day when He shall gather them, and whatever they served besides Allah, He shall say: Was it you who led astray these My servants, or did they themselves go astray from the path?

025:017 Sherali       On the day when HE will assemble them and those whom they worship instead of ALLAH, HE will ask the latter, `Was it you that led astray these MY servants, or did they themselves stray away from the Path?'

025:017 Yusufali     The day He will gather them together as well as those whom they worship besides Allah, He will ask: "Was it ye who let these My servants astray, or did they stray from the Path themselves?”

025:018

025:018 Khan          They will say: "Glorified be You! It was not for us to take any Auliya' (Protectors, Helpers, etc.) besides You, but You gave them and their fathers comfort till they forgot the warning, and became a lost people (doomed to total loss).

025:018 Maulana     They will say: Glory be to Thee! it was not beseeming for us that we should take for protectors others besides Thee, but Thou didst make them and their fathers to enjoy until they forgot the Reminder, and they became a lost people.

025:018 Pickthal      They will say: Be Thou Glorified! it was not for us to choose any protecting friends beside thee; but Thou didst give them and their fathers ease till they forgot the warning and became lost folk.

025:018 Rashad       They will say, "Be You glorified, it was not right for us to set up any lords beside You. But You allowed them to enjoy, together with their parents. Consequently, they disregarded the message and thus became wicked people."

025:018 Sarwar       They will reply, "Lord, You alone deserve all glory! We were not supposed to choose any guardian other than you. Since you have been benevolent to these people and their fathers, they forgot Your guidance and, thus, became subject to perdition."

025:018 Shakir        They shall say: Glory be to Thee; it was not beseeming for us that we should take any guardians besides Thee, but Thou didst make them and their fathers to enjoy until they forsook the reminder, and they were a people in perdition,

025:018 Sherali       They will say, `Holy art Thou !  It was not right for us to take protectors other than Thee; but Thou didst bestow on them and their fathers the good things of this life until they forgot Thy admonition and became a ruined people.'

025:018 Yusufali     They will say: "Glory to Thee! not meet was it for us that we should take for protectors others besides Thee: But Thou didst bestow, on them and their fathers, good things (in life), until they forgot the Message: for they were a people (worthless and) lost.”

025:019

025:019 Khan          Thus they (false gods all deities other than Allah) will give you (polytheists) the lie regarding what you say (that they are gods besides Allah), then you can neither avert (the punishment), nor get help. And whoever among you does wrong (i.e. sets up rivals to Allah), We shall make him taste a great torment.

025:019 Maulana     So they will give you the lie in what you say, then you can neither ward off (evil), nor (obtain) help. And whoever among you does wrong, We shall make him taste a great chastisement.

025:019 Pickthal      Thus they will give you the lie regarding what ye say, then ye can neither avert (the doom) nor obtain help. And whoso among you doeth wrong, We shall make him taste great torment.

025:019 Rashad       They have disbelieved in the message you have given them, and, consequently, you can neither protect them from the retribution they have incurred, nor can you help them in any way. Anyone among you who commits evil, we will commit him to severe retribution.

025:019 Sarwar       God will say (to the idolaters), "Your idols have rejected your faith. You cannot avoid their rejection nor can you find any help. Anyone of you who commits injustice will be made to suffer a great torment."

025:019 Shakir        So they shall indeed give you the lie in what you say, then you shall not be able to ward off or help, and whoever among you is unjust, We will make him taste a great chastisement.

025:019 Sherali       Then WE shall say to their worshippers, `They have given you the lie regarding what you said, so you cannot avert the punishment, neither can you get help. And whosoever among you does wrong, WE shall make him taste a grievous punishment.

025:019 Yusufali     (Allah will say): "Now have they proved you liars in what ye say: so ye cannot avert (your penalty) nor (get) help." And whoever among you does wrong, him shall We cause to taste of a grievous Penalty.

025:020

025:020 Khan          And We never sent before you (O Muhammad SAW) any of the Messengers but verily, they ate food and walked in the markets. And We have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have patience? And your Lord is Ever All-Seer (of everything).

025:020 Maulana     And We did not send before thee any messengers but they surely ate food and went about in the markets. And We make some of you a trial for others. Will you bear patiently? And thy Lord is ever Seeing.

025:020 Pickthal      We never sent before thee any messengers but lo! they verily ate food and walked in the markets. And We have appointed some of you a test for others: Will ye be steadfast? And thy Lord is ever Seer.

025:020 Rashad       We did not send any messengers before you who did not eat food and walk in the markets. We thus test you by each other; will you steadfastly persevere? Your Lord is Seer.

025:020 Sarwar       All the Messengerss whom We sent before, certainly, ate food and walked through the streets. We have made some of you (people) a trial for the others. Would you then exercise patience? Your Lord is All-aware.

025:020 Shakir        And We have not sent before you any messengers but they most surely ate food and went about in the markets; and We have made some of you a trial for others; will you bear patiently? And your Lord is ever Seeing.

025:020 Sherali       And WE did not send any Messengers before thee but surely they ate food and walked in the streets. And WE make some of you a trial for others to see whether you are steadfast. And thy Lord is All-Seeing.

025:020 Yusufali     And the messengers whom We sent before thee were all (men) who ate food and walked through the streets: We have made some of you as a trial for others: will ye have patience? for Allah is One Who sees (all things).

025:021                   Section 3: The Day of Discrimination

025:021 Khan          And those who expect not for a Meeting with Us (i.e. those who deny the Day of Resurrection and the life of the Hereafter), say: "Why are not the angels sent down to us, or why do we not see our Lord?" Indeed they think too highly of themselves, and are scornful with great pride.

025:021 Maulana     And those who look not for meeting with Us, say: Why have not angels been sent down to us, or (why) do we not see our Lord? Indeed they are too proud of themselves and revolt in great revolt.

025:021 Pickthal      And those who look not for a meeting with Us say: Why are angels not sent down unto us and (Why) do we not see our Lord! Assuredly they think too highly of themselves and are scornful with great pride.

025:021 Rashad       Those who do not expect to meet us said, "If only the angels could come down to us, or we could see our Lord (we would then believe)!" Indeed, they have committed a gross arrogance, and have produced a gross blasphemy.

025:021 Sarwar       Those who have no desire to meet Us have said, "Would that the angels had been sent to us or that we could see our Lord." They are really filled with pride and have committed the greatest and worst kind of rebellion and hostility.

025:021 Shakir        And those who do not hope for Our meeting, say: Why have not angels been sent down upon us, or (why) do we not see our Lord? Now certainly they are too proud of themselves and have revolted in great revolt.

025:021 Sherali       And those, who do not expect a meeting with US, say, `Why are not angels sent down to us?  Or, why do we not see our Lord?' Surely, they are too proud of themselves and have gone far in rebellion.

025:021 Yusufali     Such as fear not the meeting with Us (for Judgment) say: "Why are not the angels sent down to us, or (why) do we not see our Lord?" Indeed they have an arrogant conceit of themselves, and mighty is the insolence of their impiety!

025:022

025:022 Khan          On the Day they will see the angels, no glad tidings will there be for the Mujrimun (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, etc.) that day. And they (angels) will say: "All kinds of glad tidings are forbidden for you," [None will be allowed to enter Paradise except the one who said: La ilaha ill-Allah, "(none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) and acted practically on its legal orders and obligations].

025:022 Maulana     On the day when they will see the angels, there will be no good news for the guilty, and they will say: Let there be a strong barrier!

025:022 Pickthal      On the day when they behold the angels, on that day there will be no good tidings for the guilty; and they will cry: A forbidding ban!

025:022 Rashad       The day they see the angels, it will not be good news for the guilty; they will say, "Now, we are irreversibly confined."

025:022 Sarwar       On the day when the criminals see the angels, there will, certainly, be no rejoicing for them. Rather, they will plead to the angels, "Please keep away from us (do not drive us into hell)."

025:022 Shakir        On the day when they shall see the angels, there shall be no joy on that day for the guilty, and they shall say: It is a forbidden thing totally prohibited.

025:022 Sherali       On the day when they see the angels - there will be no good tidings on that day for the guilty; and they will cry in distress, `Would that there were a strong barrier !

025:022 Yusufali     The Day they see the angels,- no joy will there be to the sinners that Day: The (angels) will say: "There is a barrier forbidden (to you) altogether!”

025:023

025:023 Khan          And We shall turn to whatever deeds they (disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, etc.) did, and We shall make such deeds as scattered floating particles of dust.

025:023 Maulana     And We shall turn to the work they have done, so We shall render it as scattered motes.

025:023 Pickthal      And We shall turn unto the work they did and make it scattered motes.

025:023 Rashad       We will look at all the works they have done, and render them null and void.

025:023 Sarwar       We shall call their deeds into Our presence and scatter them into the air as dust (turn them devoid of all virtue).

025:023 Shakir        And We will proceed to what they have done of deeds, so We shall render them as scattered floating dust.

025:023 Sherali       And WE shall turn to the work they did and WE shall scatter it into particles of dust.

025:023 Yusufali     And We shall turn to whatever deeds they did (in this life), and We shall make such deeds as floating dust scattered about.

025:024

025:024 Khan          The dwellers of Paradise (i.e. those who deserved it through their Faith and righteousness) will, on that Day, have the best abode, and have the fairest of places for repose.

025:024 Maulana     The owners of the Garden will on that day be in a better abiding-place and a fairer resting-place.

025:024 Pickthal      Those who have earned the Garden on that day will be better in their home and happier in their place of noonday rest;

025:024 Rashad       The dwellers of Paradise are far better on that day; they will hear better news.

025:024 Sarwar       The dwellers of Paradise on that day will have the best residence and resting place.

025:024 Shakir        The dwellers of the garden shall on that day be in a better abiding-place and a better resting-place.

025:024 Sherali       The inmates of Heaven on that day will be better off as regards their abode, and better off in respect of their place of repose.

025:024 Yusufali     The Companions of the Garden will be well, that Day, in their abode, and have the fairest of places for repose.

025:025

025:025 Khan          And (remember) the Day when the heaven shall be rent asunder with clouds, and the angels will be sent down, with a grand descending.

025:025 Maulana     And on the day when the heaven burst asunder with clouds, and the angels are sent down, as they are sent.

025:025 Pickthal      A day when the heaven with the clouds will be rent asunder and the angels will be sent down, a grand descent.

025:025 Rashad       The heaven will break apart, into masses of clouds, and the angels will descend in multitudes.

025:025 Sarwar       On that day the sky will be crystal blue, clear of clouds. The angels will descend in groups

025:025 Shakir        And on the day when the heaven shall burst asunder with the clouds, and the angels shall be sent down descending (in ranks).

025:025 Sherali       And on that day when the heaven shall burst asunder with the clouds overhanging it, and the angels shall be sent down in large numbers -

025:025 Yusufali     The Day the heaven shall be rent asunder with clouds, and angels shall be sent down, descending (in ranks),-

025:026

025:026 Khan          The sovereignty on that Day will be the true (sovereignty), belonging to the Most Beneficent (Allah), and it will be a hard Day for the disbelievers (those who disbelieve in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism).

025:026 Maulana     The kingdom on that day rightly belongs to the Beneficent, and it will be a hard day for the disbelievers.

025:026 Pickthal      The Sovereignty on that day will be the True (Sovereignty) belonging to the Beneficent One, and it will be a hard day for disbelievers.

025:026 Rashad       All sovereignty on that day belongs to the Most Gracious. For the disbelievers, it will be a difficult day.

025:026 Sarwar       and the Absolute kingdom will belong to the Beneficent God.

025:026 Shakir        The kingdom on that day shall rightly belong to the Beneficent Allah, and a hard day shall it be for the unbelievers.

025:026 Sherali       The true Kingdom on that day shall belong to the Gracious, God; and it shall be a hard day for the disbelievers.

025:026 Yusufali     That Day, the dominion as of right and truth, shall be (wholly) for (Allah) Most Merciful: it will be a Day of dire difficulty for the Misbelievers.

025:027

025:027 Khan          And (remember) the Day when the Zalim (wrong- doer, oppressor, polytheist, etc.) will bite at his hands, he will say: "Oh! Would that I had taken a path with the Messenger ( Muhammad SAW).

025:027 Maulana     And on the day when the wrongdoer will bite his hands, saying: Would that I had taken a way with the Messenger!

025:027 Pickthal      On the day when the wrong-doer gnaweth his hands, he will say: Ah, would that I had chosen a way together with the messenger (of Allah)!

025:027 Rashad       The day will come when the transgressor will bite his hands (in anguish) and say, "Alas, I wish I had followed the path with the messenger.

025:027 Sarwar       It will be a hard day for the unbelievers. It will be a day when the unjust will bite their fingers, (regretfully) saying, "Would that we had followed the path of the Messengers.

025:027 Shakir        And the day when the unjust one shall bite his hands saying: O! would that I had taken a way with the Messenger

025:027 Sherali       On that day the wrongdoer will bite his hands and will say, `O, would that I had taken a way along with the Messenger !

025:027 Yusufali     The Day that the wrong-doer will bite at his hands, he will say, "Oh! would that I had taken a (straight) path with the Messenger!

025:028

025:028 Khan          "Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend!

025:028 Maulana     O woe is me! would that I had not taken such a one for a friend!

025:028 Pickthal      Alas for me! Ah, would that I had never taken such an one for friend!

025:028 Rashad       "Alas, woe to me, I wish I did not take that person as a friend.

025:028 Yusufali     "Ah! woe is me! Would that I had never taken such a one for a friend!

025:029

025:029 Khan          "He indeed led me astray from the Reminder (this Qur'an) after it had come to me. And Shaitan (Satan) is ever a deserter to man in the hour of need."

025:029 Maulana     Certainly he led me astray from the Reminder after it had come to me. And the devil ever deserts man.

025:029 Pickthal      He verily led me astray from the Reminder after it had reached me. Satan was ever man's deserter in the hour of need.

025:029 Rashad       "He has led me away from the message after it came to me. Indeed, the devil lets down his human victims."

025:029 Sarwar       He led me away from the true guidance after it had come to us. Satan is a traitor to people."

025:029 Shakir        Certainly he led me astray from the reminder after it had come to me; and the Shaitan fails to aid man.

025:029 Sherali       `He led me astray from the Reminder after it had come to me.' And Satan always deserts man in the hour of need.

025:029 Yusufali     "He did lead me astray from the Message (of Allah) after it had come to me! Ah! the Evil One is but a traitor to man!”

025:030

025:030 Khan          And the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) will say: "O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Qur'an (neither listened to it, nor acted on its laws and orders).

025:030 Maulana     And the Messenger will say: My Lord, surely my people treat this Qur’an as a forsaken thing.

025:030 Pickthal      And the messenger saith: O my Lord! Lo! mine own folk make this Qur'an of no account.

025:030 Rashad       The messenger said, "My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran."

025:030 Sarwar       The Messengers will say, "Lord, my people had abandoned this Quran."

025:030 Shakir        And the Messenger cried out: O my Lord! surely my people have treated this Quran as a forsaken thing.

025:030 Yusufali     Then the Messenger will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Qur'an for just foolish nonsense.”

025:031

025:031 Khan          Thus have We made for every Prophet an enemy among the Mujrimun (disbelievers, polytheists, criminals, etc.). But Sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and Helper.

025:031 Maulana     And thus have We made for every prophet an enemy from among the guilty, and sufficient is thy Lord as a Guide and a Helper.

025:031 Pickthal      Even so have We appointed unto every prophet an opponent from among the guilty; but Allah sufficeth for a Guide and Helper.

025:031 Rashad       We also set up against every prophet enemies from among the guilty. Your Lord suffices as a guide, a master.

025:031 Sarwar       Thus, from the sinful people We made enemies for every Prophet. Your Lord is a Sufficient Guide and Helper.

025:031 Shakir        And thus have We made for every prophet an enemy from among the sinners and sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and a Helper.

025:031 Sherali       Thus did WE make for every Prophet an enemy from among the sinners; And sufficient is thy Lord as a Guide and a Helper.

025:031 Yusufali     Thus have We made for every prophet an enemy among the sinners: but enough is thy Lord to guide and to help.

025:032

025:032 Khan          And those who disbelieve say: "Why is not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once?" Thus (it is sent down in parts), that We may strengthen your heart thereby. And We have revealed it to you gradually, in stages. (It was revealed to the Prophet SAW in 23 years.).

025:032 Maulana     And those who disbelieve say: Why has not the Qur’an been revealed to him all at once? Thus, that We may strengthen thy heart thereby and We have arranged it well in arranging.

025:032 Pickthal      And those who disbelieve say: Why is the Qur'an not revealed unto him all at once? (It is revealed) thus that We may strengthen thy heart therewith; and We have arranged it in right order.

025:032 Rashad       Those who disbelieved said, "Why did not the Quran come through him all at once?" We have released it to you gradually, in order to fix it in your memory. We have recited it in a specific sequence.

025:032 Shakir        And those who disbelieve say: Why has not the Quran been revealed to him all at once? Thus, that We may strengthen your heart by it and We have arranged it well in arranging.

025:032 Sherali       And those who disbelieve say, `Why was not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once?'  WE have revealed it in this manner that WE may strengthen thy heart therewith. And WE have arranged it in the Best form.

025:032 Yusufali     Those who reject Faith say: "Why is not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once? Thus (is it revealed), that We may strengthen thy heart thereby, and We have rehearsed it to thee in slow, well-arranged stages, gradually.

025:033

025:033 Khan          And no example or similitude do they bring (to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Qur'an), but We reveal to you the truth (against that similitude or example), and the better explanation thereof.

025:033 Maulana     And they cannot bring thee a question, but We have brought thee the truth and the best explanation.

025:033 Pickthal      And they bring thee no similitude but We bring thee the Truth (as against it), and better (than their similitude) as argument.

025:033 Rashad       Whatever argument they come up with, we provide you with the truth, and a better understanding.

025:033 Sarwar       We will support you with the Truth and the best interpretation whenever the infidels argue against you.

025:033 Shakir        And they shall not bring to you any argument, but We have brought to you (one) with truth and best in significance.

025:033 Sherali       And they do not come to thee with an objection but WE provide thee with the truth and an excellent explanation.

025:033 Yusufali     And no question do they bring to thee but We reveal to thee the truth and the best explanation (thereof).

025:034

025:034 Khan          Those who will be gathered to Hell (prone) on their faces, such will be in an evil state, and most astray from the (Straight) Path.

025:034 Maulana     Those who will be gathered to hell on their faces -- they are in an evil plight and straying farther away from the path.

025:034 Pickthal      Those who will be gathered on their faces unto hell: such are worse in plight and further from the right road.

025:034 Rashad       Those who are forcibly summoned to Hell are in the worst position; they are the farthest from the right path.

025:034 Sarwar       Those who will be driven headlong into hell will have a terrible dwelling; they have certainly gone astray.

025:034 Shakir        (As for) those who shall be gathered upon their faces to hell, they are in a worse plight and straying farther away from the path.

025:035 Khan          And indeed We gave Musa (Moses) the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)], and placed his brother Harun (Aaron) with him as a helper;

025:037

025:037 Khan          And Nuh's (Noah) people, when they denied the Messengers We drowned them, and We made them as a sign for mankind. And We have prepared a painful torment for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong- doers, etc).

025:040 Maulana     And indeed they pass by the town wherein was rained an evil rain. Do they not see it? Nay, they hope not to be raised again.

025:040 Pickthal      And indeed they have passed by the township whereon was rained the fatal rain. Can it be that they have not seen it? Nay, but they hope for no resurrection.
