029:002 Khan          Do people think that they will be left alone because they say: "We believe," and will not be tested.

029:002 Maulana     Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and will not be tried?

029:002 Rashad       Do the people think that they will be left to say, "We believe," without being put to the test?

029:002 Sarwar       Do people think they will not be tested because they say, "We have faith?".

029:002 Yusufali     Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested?

029:003

029:003 Khan          And We indeed tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make (it) known (the truth of) those who are true, and will certainly make (it) known (the falsehood of) those who are liars, (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test).

029:003 Maulana     And indeed We tried those before them, so Allah will certainly know those who are true and He will know the liars.

029:003 Pickthal      Lo! We tested those who were before you. Thus Allah knoweth those who are sincere, and knoweth those who feign.

029:003 Rashad       We have tested those before them, for GOD must distinguish those who are truthful, and He must expose the liars.

029:003 Sarwar       We had certainly tried those who lived before them to make sure who were truthful in their faith and who were liars.

029:003 Shakir        And certainly We tried those before them, so Allah will certainly know those who are true and He will certainly know the liars.

029:003 Sherali       And WE did try those who were before them. So ALLAH will, assuredly, know those who are truthful and HE will, assuredly, know the liars.

029:003 Yusufali     We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.

029:004

029:004 Khan          Or those who do evil deeds think that they can outstrip Us (i.e. escape Our Punishment)? Evil is that which they judge!

029:004 Maulana     Or do they who work evil think that they will escape Us? Evil is it that they judge!

029:004 Pickthal      Or do those who do ill-deeds imagine that they can outstrip Us? Evil (for them) is that which they decide.

029:004 Rashad       Do those who commit sins think that they can ever fool us? Wrong indeed is their judgment.

029:004 Sarwar       Do the evil-doers think they can escape Us? How terrible is their judgment?.

029:004 Shakir        Or do they who work evil think that they will escape Us? Evil is it that they judge!

029:004 Sherali       Or, those who commit evil deeds imagine that they will escape US?  How ill they judge !

029:004 Yusufali     Do those who practise evil think that they will get the better of Us? Evil is their judgment!

029:005

029:005 Khan          Whoever hopes for the Meeting with Allah, then Allah's Term is surely coming. and He is the All- Hearer, the All-Knower.

029:005 Maulana     Whoever hopes to meet with Allah, the term of Allah is then surely coming. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

029:005 Pickthal      Whoso looketh forward to the meeting with Allah (let him know that) Allah's reckoning is surely nigh, and He is the Hearer, the Knower.

029:005 Rashad       Anyone hoping to meet GOD, (should know that) such a meeting with GOD will most assuredly come to pass. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

029:005 Sarwar       Let those who have the desire to be in the presence of God on the Day of Judgment know that their day will certainly be coming. God is All-Hearing and All-Knowing.

029:005 Shakir        Whoever hopes to meet Allah, the term appointed by Allah will then most surely come; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

029:005 Sherali       Whoso hopes to meet ALLAH, let him be prepared for it, for ALLAH's appointed time is certainly coming. And HE is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing.

029:005 Yusufali     For those whose hopes are in the meeting with Allah (in the Hereafter, let them strive); for the term (appointed) by Allah is surely coming and He hears and knows (all things).

029:006

029:006 Khan          And whosoever strives, he strives only for himself. Verily, Allah is free of all wants from the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns, and all that exists).

029:006 Maulana     And whoever strives hard, strives for himself. Surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of) (His) creatures.

029:006 Pickthal      And whosoever striveth, striveth only for himself, for lo! Allah is altogether Independent of (His) creatures.

029:006 Rashad       Those who strive, strive for their own good. GOD is in no need of anyone.

029:006 Sarwar       Whoever strives hard should know that it is for his own good. God is independent of the whole world.

029:006 Shakir        And whoever strives hard, he strives only for his own soul; most surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of) the worlds.

029:006 Yusufali     And if any strive (with might and main), they do so for their own souls: for Allah is free of all needs from all creation.

029:007

029:007 Khan          Those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism) and in Messenger Muhammad SAW, and do not apostate because of the harm they receive from the polytheists], and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall remit from them their evil deeds and shall reward them according to the best of that which they used to do.

029:007 Maulana     And those who believe and do good, We shall certainly do away with their afflictions and reward them for the best of what they did.

029:007 Pickthal      And as for those who believe and do good works, We shall remit from them their evil deeds and shall repay them the best that they did.

029:007 Rashad       Those who believe and lead a righteous life, we will certainly remit their sins, and will certainly reward them generously for their righteous works.

029:007 Sarwar       We shall expiate the sins of the righteously striving believers and shall reward them better than their deeds.

029:007 Shakir        And (as for) those who believe and do good, We will most certainly do away with their evil deeds and We will most certainly reward them the best of what they did.

029:007 Sherali       And as to those who believe and do righteous deeds WE shall surely, remove from them their evils, and WE shall, surely, give them the best reward of their works.

029:007 Yusufali     Those who believe and work righteous deeds,- from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them, and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds.

029:008

029:008 Khan          And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents, but if they strive to make you join with Me (in worship) anything (as a partner) of which you have no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return, and I shall tell you what you used to do.

029:008 Maulana     And We have enjoined on man goodness to his parents. But if they contend with thee to associate (others) with Me, of which thou has no knowledge, obey them not. To Me is your return, so I will inform you of what you did.

029:008 Pickthal      We have enjoined on man kindness to parents; but if they strive to make thee join with Me that of which thou hast no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto Me is your return and I shall tell you what ye used to do.

029:008 Rashad       We enjoined the human being to honor his parents. But if they try to force you to set up idols beside Me, do not obey them. To Me is your ultimate return, then I will inform you of everything you had done.

029:008 Sarwar       We have advised the human being, "Be kind to your parents. Do not obey them if they force you to consider equal to Me things which you do not know are such." You will all return (to Me) and I shall show all that you have done.

029:008 Shakir        And We have enjoined on man goodness to his parents, and if they contend with you that you should associate (others) with Me, of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them, to Me is your return, so I will inform you of what you did.

029:008 Sherali       And WE have enjoined on man kindness to his parents; but if they contend with thee to make thee associate that with ME of which thou hast no knowledge, then obey them not. Unto ME is your return, and I shall inform you of what you did.

029:008 Yusufali     We have enjoined on man kindness to parents: but if they (either of them) strive (to force) thee to join with Me (in worship) anything of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not. Ye have (all) to return to me, and I will tell you (the truth) of all that ye did.

029:009

029:009 Khan          And for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah and other items of Faith) and do righteous good deeds, surely, We shall make them enter in (the enterance of) the righteous (i.e. in Paradise).

029:009 Maulana     And those who believe and do good, We shall surely make them enter among the righteous.

029:009 Pickthal      And as for those who believe and do good works, We verily shall make them enter in among the righteous.

029:009 Sarwar       We shall admit the righteously striving believers into the company of the pious ones.

029:009 Yusufali     And those who believe and work righteous deeds,- them shall We admit to the company of the Righteous.

029:010

029:010 Khan          Of mankind are some who say: "We believe in Allah," but if they are made to suffer for the sake of Allah, they consider the trial of mankind as Allah's punishment, and if victory comes from your Lord, (the hypocrites) will say: "Verily! We were with you (helping you)." Is not Allah Best Aware of what is in the breast of the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns).

029:010 Maulana     And among men is he who says: We believe in Allah; but when he is persecuted for the sake of Allah, he thinks the persecution of men to be as the chastisement of Allah. And if there comes help from thy Lord, they will say: Surely we were with you. Is not Allah the Best Knower of what is in the hearts of mankind?

029:010 Pickthal      Of mankind is he who saith: We believe in Allah, but, if he be made to suffer for the sake of Allah, he mistaketh the persecution of mankind for Allah's punishment; and then, if victory cometh from thy Lord, will say: Lo! we were with you (all the while). Is not Allah Best Aware of what is in the bosoms of (His) creatures?

029:010 Rashad       Among the people there are those who say, "We believe in GOD," but as soon as they suffer any hardship because of GOD, they equate the people's persecution with GOD's retribution. But if blessings from your Lord come your way, they say, "We were with you." Is GOD not fully aware of the people's innermost thoughts?

029:010 Sarwar       Some people say, "We have faith in God." But when they face some hardship for His cause, they begin to consider the persecution that they have experienced from people as a torment from God. When your Lord grants you a victory, they say, "We were with you." Does God not know best what is in the hearts of every creature?.

029:010 Shakir        And among men is he who says: We believe in Allah; but when he is persecuted in (the way of) Allah he thinks the persecution of men to be as the chastisement of Allah; and if there come assistance from your Lord, they would most certainly say: Surely we were with you. What! is not Allah the best knower of what is in the breasts of mankind.

029:010 Sherali       And of men there are some who say, `We believe in ALLAH;' but when they are made to suffer in the cause of ALLAH, they regard the persecution of men as if it were the punishment of ALLAH. And if help comes from thy Lord, they are sure to say, `Certainly, we were with you.' Is not ALLAH best aware of what is in the breasts of HIS creatures?

029:010 Yusufali     Then there are among men such as say, "We believe in Allah"; but when they suffer affliction in (the cause of) Allah, they treat men's oppression as if it were the Wrath of Allah! And if help comes (to thee) from thy Lord, they are sure to say, "We have (always) been with you!" Does not Allah know best all that is in the hearts of all creation?

029:011

029:011 Khan          Verily, Allah knows those who believe, and verily, He knows the hypocrites [i.e. Allah will test the people with good and hard days to discriminate the good from the wicked (although Allah knows all that before putting them to test)].

029:011 Maulana     And certainly Allah will know those who believe, and He will know the hypocrites.

029:011 Pickthal      Verily Allah knoweth those who believe, and verily He knoweth the hypocrites.

029:011 Rashad       GOD will most certainly distinguish those who believe, and He will most certainly expose the hypocrites.

029:011 Sarwar       God certainly knows all about the believers and the hypocrites.

029:011 Shakir        And most certainly Allah will know those who believe and most certainly He will know the hypocrites.

029:011 Sherali       And ALLAH will, certainly, make manifest those who believe and HE will, surely, distinguish the hypocrites from the believers.

029:011 Yusufali     And Allah most certainly knows those who believe, and as certainly those who are Hypocrites.

029:012

029:012 Khan          And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: "Follow our way and we will verily bear your sins," never will they bear anything of their sins. Surely, they are liars.

029:012 Maulana     And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Follow our path and we will bear your wrongs. And they can never bear aught of their wrongs. Surely they are liars.

029:012 Pickthal      Those who disbelieve say unto those who believe: Follow our way (of religion) and we verily will bear your sins (for you). They cannot bear aught of their sins. Lo! they verily are liars.

029:012 Rashad       Those who disbelieved said to those who believed, "If you follow our way, we will be responsible for your sins." Not true; they cannot bear any of their sins. They are liars.

029:012 Sarwar       The unbelievers say to the believers. "Follow our way. We shall take the responsibility for your sins." They cannot take responsibility for any of the sins. They are only liars.

029:012 Shakir        And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Follow our path and we will bear your wrongs. And never shall they be the bearers of any of their wrongs; most surely they are liars.

029:012 Sherali       And those who disbelieve say to those who believe, `Follow our way, and we will, surely, bear the burden of your sins.' But they will bear none of the burden of their sins. They are, surely, liars.

029:012 Yusufali     And the Unbelievers say to those who believe: "Follow our path, and we will bear (the consequences) of your faults." Never in the least will they bear their faults: in fact they are liars!

029:013

029:013 Khan          And verily, they shall bear their own loads, and other loads besides their own, and verily, they shall be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about that which they used to fabricate.

029:013 Maulana     And they will certainly bear their own burdens, and other burdens besides their own burdens; and they will certainly be questioned on the day of Resurrection as to what they forged.

029:013 Pickthal      But they verily will bear their own loads and other loads beside their own, and they verily will be questioned on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they invented.

029:013 Rashad       In fact, they will carry their own sins, in addition to loads of other people's sins for which they were responsible. Most certainly, they will be asked on the Day of Resurrection about their false claims.

029:013 Sarwar       Besides the other burdens that they will have to carry, they will certainly be loaded with the burden of their own sins. They will be questioned on the Day of Judgment about what they had falsely invented.

029:013 Shakir        And most certainly they shall carry their own burdens, and other burdens with their own burdens, and most certainly they shall be questioned on the resurrection day as to what they forged.

029:013 Sherali       But they shall, surely, bear their own burdens, and other burdens along with their own burdens. And they will, surely, be questioned on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they fabricated.

029:013 Yusufali     They will bear their own burdens, and (other) burdens along with their own, and on the Day of Judgments they will be called to account for their falsehoods.

029:014

029:014                   Section 2: Noah and Abraham

029:014 Khan          And indeed We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people, and he stayed among them a thousand years less fifty years [inviting them to believe in the Oneness of Allah (Monotheism), and discard the false gods and other deities], and the Deluge overtook them while they were Zalimun (wrong- doers, polytheists, disbelievers, etc.).

029:014 Maulana     And We indeed sent Noah to his people, so he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years. And the deluge overtook them, and they were wrongdoers.

029:014 Pickthal      And verily we sent Noah (as Our messenger) unto his folk, and he continued with them for a thousand years save fifty years; and the flood engulfed them, for they were wrong-doers.

029:014 Rashad       We sent Noah to his people, and he stayed with them one thousand years, less fifty. Subsequently, they incurred the flood because of their transgressions.

029:014 Sarwar       We sent Noah to his people and he lived with them for nine hundred and fifty years, then the flood engulfed them for their injustice.

029:014 Shakir        And certainly We sent Nuh to his people, so he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years. And the deluge overtook them, while they were unjust.

029:014 Sherali       And WE, certainly, sent Noah to his people, and he remained among them a thousand years, short of fifty years. Then the deluge overtook them, while they were wrongdoers.

029:014 Yusufali     We (once) sent Noah to his people, and he tarried among them a thousand years less fifty: but the Deluge overwhelmed them while they (persisted in) sin.

029:015

029:015 Khan          Then We saved him and those with him in the ship, and made it (the ship) as an Ayah (a lesson, a warning, etc.) for the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

029:015 Maulana     So We delivered him and the inmates of the ark, and made it a sign to the nations.

029:015 Pickthal      And We rescued him and those with him in the ship, and made of it a portent for the peoples.

029:015 Rashad       We saved him and those who accompanied him in the ark, and we set it up as a lesson for all the people.

029:015 Sarwar       We saved Noah and the people in the Ark and made (their case) a miracle for the world.

029:015 Shakir        So We delivered him and the inmates of the ark, and made it a sign to the nations.

029:015 Sherali       But WE saved him and those who were with him in the Ark; and WE made it a Sign for all peoples.

029:015 Yusufali     But We saved him and the companions of the Ark, and We made the (Ark) a Sign for all peoples!

029:016

029:016 Khan          And (remember) Ibrahim (Abraham) when he said to his people: "Worship Allah (Alone), and fear Him, that is better for you if you did but know.

029:016 Maulana     And (We sent) Abraham, when he said to his people: Serve Allah and keep your duty to Him. That is better for you, if you did but know.

029:016 Pickthal      And Abraham! (Remember) when he said unto his folk: Serve Allah, and keep your duty unto Him; that is better for you if ye did but know.

029:016 Rashad       Abraham said to his people, "You shall worship GOD, and reverence Him. This is better for you, if you only knew.

029:016 Sarwar       Abraham told his people, "Worship God and have fear of Him. It is better for you if only you knew it.

029:016 Shakir        And (We sent) Ibrahim, when he said to his people: Serve Allah and be careful of (your duty to) Him; this is best for you, if you did but know:

029:016 Sherali       And WE sent Abraham when he said to his people, `Worship ALLAH and fear HIM. That is better for you, if only you knew;

029:016 Yusufali     And (We also saved) Abraham: behold, he said to his people, "Serve Allah and fear Him: that will be best for you- If ye understand!

029:017

029:017 Khan          "You worship besides Allah only idols, and you only invent falsehood. Verily, those whom you worship besides Allah have no power to give you provision, so seek your provision from Allah (Alone), and worship Him (Alone), and be grateful to Him. To Him (Alone) you will be brought back.

029:017 Maulana     You only worship idols besides Allah and you invent a lie. Surely they whom you serve besides Allah control no sustenance for you; so seek sustenance from Allah and serve Him and be grateful to Him. To Him you will be brought back.

029:017 Pickthal      Ye serve instead of Allah only idols, and ye only invent a lie. Lo! those whom ye serve instead of Allah own no provision for you. So seek your provision from Allah, and serve Him, and give thanks unto Him, (for) unto Him ye will be brought back.

029:017 Rashad       "What you worship instead of GOD are powerless idols; you have invented a lie." The idols you worship beside GOD do not possess any provisions for you. Therefore, you shall seek provisions only from GOD. You shall worship Him alone, and be appreciative of Him; to Him is your ultimate return.

029:017 Sarwar       You worship idols besides God and you create falsehood. Whatever you worship besides Him cannot provide you with anything for your sustenance. Seek your sustenance from the bounties of God. Worship Him. Give Him thanks. To Him you will all return."

029:017 Shakir        You only worship idols besides Allah and you create a lie surely they whom you serve besides Allah do not control for you any sustenance, therefore seek the sustenance from Allah and serve Him and be grateful to Him; to Him you shall be brought back.

029:017 Sherali       `You only worship idols beside ALLAH, and you invent a lie. Those, whom you worship beside ALLAH, have no power to provide sustenance for you. Then seek sustenance from ALLAH, and worship HIM, and be Grateful to HIM.  Unto HIM will you be brought back.'

029:017 Yusufali     "For ye do worship idols besides Allah, and ye invent falsehood. The things that ye worship besides Allah have no power to give you sustenance: then seek ye sustenance from Allah, serve Him, and be grateful to Him: to Him will be your return.

029:018

029:018 Khan          "And if you deny, then nations before you have denied (their Messengers). And the duty of the Messenger is only to convey (the Message) plainly."

029:018 Maulana     And if you reject, nations before you indeed reject (the Truth). And the duty of the Messenger is only to deliver (the message) plainly.

029:018 Pickthal      But if ye deny, then nations have denied before you. The messenger is only to convey (the message) plainly.

029:018 Rashad       If you disbelieve, generations before you have also disbelieved. The sole function of the messenger is to deliver (the message).

029:018 Sarwar       If you, (pagans), call our (revelations) lies, certainly many generations living before you have also done the same thing. The duty of a Messenger is only to preach clearly.

029:018 Shakir        And if you reject (the truth), nations before you did indeed reject (the truth); and nothing is incumbent on the messenger but a plain delivering (of the message).

029:018 Sherali       And if you reject the truth, then the generations before you also rejected it. And the Messenger is only responsible for the clear delivery of the Message.

029:018 Yusufali     "And if ye reject (the Message), so did generations before you: and the duty of the messenger is only to preach publicly (and clearly).”

029:019

029:019 Khan          See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it. Verily, that is easy for Allah.

029:019 Maulana     See they not how Allah originates the creation, the reproduces it? Surely that is easy to Allah.

029:019 Pickthal      See they not how Allah produceth creation, then reproduceth it? Lo! for Allah that is easy.

029:019 Rashad       Have they not seen how GOD initiates the creation, then repeats it? This is easy for GOD to do.

029:019 Sarwar       Have they not seen how God begins the creation and then turns it back? This is not difficult at all for God.

029:019 Shakir        What! do they not consider how Allah originates the creation, then reproduces it? Surely that is easy to Allah.

029:019 Sherali       See they not how ALLAH originates creation, then repeats it?  That, surely, is easy for ALLAH.

029:019 Yusufali     See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

029:020

029:020 Khan          Say: "Travel in the land and see how (Allah) originated creation, and then Allah will bring forth (resurrect) the creation of the Hereafter (i.e. resurrection after death). Verily, Allah is Able to do all things."

029:020 Maulana     Say: Travel in the earth then see how He makes the first creation, then Allah creates the latter creation. Surely Allah is Possessor of power over all things.

029:020 Pickthal      Say (O Muhammad): Travel in the land and see how He originated creation, then Allah bringeth forth the later growth. Lo! Allah is Able to do all things.

029:023 Khan          And those who disbelieve in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah and the Meeting with Him, it is they who have no hope of My Mercy, and it is they who will (have) a painful torment.

029:023 Maulana     And those who disbelieve in the messages of Allah and the meeting with Him, they despair of My mercy and for them is a painful chastisement.

029:023 Pickthal      Those who disbelieve in the revelations of Allah and in (their) Meeting with Him, such have no hope of My mercy. For such there is a painful doom.

029:023 Sarwar       Those who have rejected God's revelations have no hope in receiving His mercy. They will face a painful torment.

029:024

029:024 Khan          So nothing was the answer of [Ibrahim's (Abraham)] people except that they said: "Kill him or burn him." Then Allah saved him from the fire. Verily, in this are indeed signs for a people who believe.

029:024 Maulana     So naught was the answer of his people except that they say: Slay him or burn him! But Allah delivered him from the fire. Surely therein are signs for a people who believe.

029:024 Pickthal      But the answer of his folk was only that they said: "Kill him" or "Burn him." Then Allah saved him from the Fire. Lo! herein verily are portents for folk who believe.

029:024 Rashad       The only response from his people was their saying, "Kill him, or burn him." But GOD saved him from the fire. This should provide lessons for people who believe.

029:024 Sarwar       (Abraham's) people had no answer except suggesting, "Kill him or burn him." But God saved him from the fire. In this there is evidence (of truth) for the believing people.

029:024 Shakir        So naught was the answer of his people except that they said: Slay him or burn him; then Allah delivered him from the fire; most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

029:024 Sherali       And the only answer of his people was that they said, `Slay him or burn him.' But ALLAH delivered him from the fire. In that, surely, are, Signs for a people who believe.

029:024 Yusufali     So naught was the answer of (Abraham's) people except that they said: "Slay him or burn him." But Allah did save him from the Fire. Verily in this are Signs for people who believe.

029:025

029:025 Khan          And [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "You have taken (for worship) idols instead of Allah, and the love between you is only in the life of this world, but on the Day of Resurrection, you shall disown each other, and curse each other, and your abode will be the Fire, and you shall have no helper."

029:025 Maulana     And he said: you have only taken idols besides Allah by way of friendship between you in this world’s life, then on the day of Resurrection some of you will deny others, and some of you will curse others; and your abode is the Fire, and you will have no helpers.

029:025 Pickthal      He said: Ye have chosen only idols instead of Allah. The love between you is only in the life of the world. Then on the Day of Resurrection ye will deny each other and curse each other, and your abode will be the Fire, and ye will have no helpers.

029:025 Rashad       He said, "You worship beside GOD powerless idols due to peer pressure, just to preserve some friendship among you in this worldly life. But then, on the Day of Resurrection, you will disown one another, and curse one another. Your destiny is Hell, wherein you cannot help one another."

029:025 Sarwar       Abraham said, "You believe in idols besides God only out of worldly love, but on the Day of Judgment you will reject and condemn each other. Your dwelling will be fire and no one will help you."

029:025 Shakir        And he said: You have only taken for yourselves idols besides Allah by way of friendship between you in this world's life, then on the resurrection day some of you shall deny others, and some of you shall curse others, and your abode is the fire, and you shall not have any helpers.

029:025 Sherali       And Abraham said, `Verily, you have taken for yourselves idols beside ALLAH, out of love for each other in the present life. Then on the Day of Resurrection you will deny each other, and curse each other. And your abode will be the Fire; and you will have no helpers.'

029:025 Yusufali     And he said: "For you, ye have taken (for worship) idols besides Allah, out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life; but on the Day of Judgment ye shall disown each other and curse each other: and your abode will be the Fire, and ye shall have none to help.”

029:026

029:026 Khan          So Lout (Lot) believed in him [Ibrahim's (Abraham) Message of Islamic Monotheism]. He [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "I will emigrate for the sake of my Lord. Verily, He is the All- Mighty, the All-Wise."

029:026 Maulana     So Lot believed in him. And he said: I am fleeing to my Lord. Surely He is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:026 Pickthal      And Lot believed him, and said: Lo! I am a fugitive unto my Lord. Lo! He, only He, is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:026 Rashad       Lot believed with him and said, "I am emigrating to my Lord. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise."

029:026 Sarwar       Only Lot believed in (Abraham) and said, "I seek refuge in my Lord, for He is Majestic and All-wise".

029:026 Shakir        And Lut believed in Him, and he said: I am fleeing to my Lord, surely He is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:026 Sherali       And Lot believed in him, and Abraham said, `I flee unto my Lord; surely, HE is the Mighty, the Wise.'

029:026 Yusufali     But Lut had faith in Him: He said: "I will leave home for the sake of my Lord: for He is Exalted in Might, and Wise.”

029:027

029:027 Khan          And We bestowed on him [Ibrahim (Abraham)], Ishaque (Isaac) and Ya'qub (Jacob), and ordained among his offspring Prophethood and the Book [i.e. the Taurat (Torah) (to Musa - Moses), the Injeel (Gospel) (to 'Iesa - Jesus), the Qur'an (to Muhammad SAW), all from the offspring of Ibrahim (Abraham)], and We granted him his reward in this world, and verily, in the Hereafter he is indeed among the righteous.

029:027 Maulana     And We granted him Isaac and Jacob, and ordained prophethood and the Book among his seed. And We gave him his reward in this world, and in the Hereafter he will surely be among the righteous.

029:027 Pickthal      And We bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and We established the prophethood and the Scripture among his seed, and We gave him his reward in the world, and lo! in the Hereafter he verily is among the righteous.

029:027 Rashad       We granted him Isaac and Jacob, we assigned to his descendants prophethood and the scriptures, we endowed him with his due recompense in this life, and in the Hereafter he will surely be with the righteous.

029:027 Sherali       And WE bestowed on him Isaac and Jacob, and WE placed Prophethood and the Book among his descendants, and WE gave him his reward in this life, and in the Hereafter he will, surely, be among the righteous.

029:027 Yusufali     And We gave (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob, and ordained among his progeny Prophethood and Revelation, and We granted him his reward in this life; and he was in the Hereafter (of the company) of the Righteous.

029:028

029:028 Khan          And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people: "You commit Al-Fahishah (sodomy the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) it in the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)."

029:028 Maulana     And (We sent) Lot when he said to his people: Surely you are guilty of an abomination which none of the nations has done before you.

029:028 Pickthal      And Lot! (Remember) when he said unto his folk: Lo! ye commit lewdness such as no creature did before you.

029:028 Rashad       Lot said to his people, "You commit such an abomination, no one in the world has ever done it before you.

029:028 Sarwar       Lot told his people, "You are certainly committing the kind of indecency which no one in the world has committed before".

029:028 Shakir        And (We sent) Lut when he said to his people: Most surely you are guilty of an indecency which none of the nations has ever done before you;

029:028 Sherali       And call to mind Lot when he said to his people, `You commit an abomination such as no one among mankind has ever committed before you;

029:028 Yusufali     And (remember) Lut: behold, he said to his people: "Ye do commit lewdness, such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you.

029:029

029:029 Khan          "Verily, you do sodomy with men, and rob the wayfarer (travellers, etc.)! And practise Al- Munkar (disbelief and polytheism and every kind of evil wicked deed) in your meetings." But his people gave no answer except, that they said: "Bring Allah's Torment upon us if you are one of the truthful."

029:029 Maulana     Do you come to males and commit robbery on the highway, and commit evil deeds in your assemblies? But the answer of his people was only that they said: Bring on us Allah’s chastisement, if thou art truthful.

029:029 Pickthal      For come ye not in unto males, and cut ye not the road (for travellers), and commit ye not abomination in your meetings? But the answer of his folk was only that they said: Bring Allah's doom upon us if thou art a truthteller!

029:029 Rashad       "You practice sex with the men, you commit highway robbery, and you allow all kinds of vice in your society." The only response from his people was to say, "Bring to us GOD's retribution, if you are truthful."

029:029 Sarwar       Do you engage in carnal relations with men, rob the travellers, and commit evil in your gatherings? His people had no answer but to say, "Bring upon us the torment of God if you are truthful".

029:029 Shakir        What! do you come to the males and commit robbery on the highway, and you commit evil deeds in your assemblies? But nothing was the answer of his people except that they said: Bring on us Allah's punishment, if you are one of the truthful.

029:029 Sherali       What !  Do you approach men with lust and commit robbery on the highway, and you commit abomination in your meetings?'  But the only answer of his people was that they said, `Bring upon us the punishment of ALLAH if thou speakest the truth.'

029:029 Yusufali     "Do ye indeed approach men, and cut off the highway?- and practise wickedness (even) in your councils?" But his people gave no answer but this: they said: "Bring us the Wrath of Allah if thou tellest the truth.”

029:030

029:030 Khan          He said: "My Lord! Give me victory over the people who are Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes and sins, oppressors, tyrants, mischief- makers, corrupts).

029:030 Maulana     He said: My Lord, help me against the mischievous people.

029:030 Pickthal      He said: My Lord! Give me victory over folk who work corruption.

029:030 Rashad       He said, "My Lord, grant me victory over these wicked people."

029:030 Sarwar       He prayed, "Lord help me against the evil-doing people."

029:030 Shakir        He said: My Lord! help me against the mischievous people.

029:030 Sherali       He said, `Help me, my Lord, against the wicked people.'

029:030 Yusufali     He said: "O my Lord! help Thou me against people who do mischief!”

029:031                   Section 4: Opposition to Truth ever a Failure

029:031 Khan          And when Our Messengers came to Ibrahim (Abraham) with the glad tidings they said: "Verily, we are going to destroy the people of this [Lout's (Lot's)] town (i.e. the town of Sodom in Palestine) truly, its people have been Zalimun [wrong-doers, polytheists and disobedient to Allah, and have also belied their Messenger Lout (Lot)]."

029:031 Maulana     And when Our messengers came to Abraham with good news, they said: We are going to destroy the people of this town, for its people are iniquitous.

029:031 Pickthal      And when Our messengers brought Abraham the good news, they said: Lo! we are about to destroy the people of that township, for its people are wrong-doers.

029:031 Rashad       When our messengers went to Abraham with good news (about Isaac's birth), they also said, "We are on our way to annihilate the people of that town (Sodom), for its people have been wicked."

029:031 Sarwar       When Our angelic Messengers brought glad news to Abraham, they told him, "We are about to destroy the people of this town for their injustice".

029:031 Shakir        And when Our messengers came to Ibrahim with the good news, they said: Surely we are going to destroy the people of this town, for its people are unjust.

029:031 Sherali       And when Our Messengers brought Abraham the tidings, they said, `The tidings is, `We were about to destroy the people of this town; surely, its people are wrongdoers.'

029:031 Yusufali     When Our Messengers came to Abraham with the good news, they said: "We are indeed going to destroy the people of this township: for truly they are (addicted to) crime.”

029:032

029:032 Khan          Ibrahim (Abraham) said: "But there is Lout (Lot) in it." They said:"We know better who is there, we will verily save him [Lout (Lot)] and his family, except his wife, she will be of those who remain behind (i.e. she will be destroyed along with those who will be destroyed from her folk)."

029:032 Maulana     He said: Surely in it is Lot. They said: We know well who is in it; we shall certainly deliver him and his followers, except his wife; she is of those who remain behind.

029:032 Pickthal      He said: Lo! Lot is there. They said: We are best aware of who is there. We are to deliver him and his household, all save his wife, who is of those who stay behind.

029:032 Rashad       He said, "But Lot is living there." They said, "We are fully aware of everyone who lives in it. We will of course save him and his family, except his wife; she is doomed."

029:032 Sarwar       Abraham said, "Lot is there in that town!" They said, "We know everyone there. We shall certainly save him and his family except his wife who will remain behind."

029:032 Shakir        He said: Surely in it is Lut. They said: We know well who is in it; we shall certainly deliver him and his followers, except his wife; she shall be of those who remain behind.

029:032 Sherali       He said, `But Lot is there !'  They said, `We know very well who is there. We will surely, save him and his family, except his wife, who is of those who remain behind.'

029:032 Yusufali     He said: "But there is Lut there." They said: "Well do we know who is there: we will certainly save him and his following,- except his wife: she is of those who lag behind!”

029:033

029:033 Khan          And when Our Messengers came to Lout (Lot), he was grieved because of them, and felt straitened on their account. They said: "Have no fear, and do not grieve! Truly, we shall save you and your family, except your wife, she will be of those who remain behind (i.e. she will be destroyed along with those who will be destroyed from her folk).

029:033 Maulana     And when our messengers came to Lot, he was grieved on account of them, and he lacked strength to protect them. And they said: Fear not, nor grieve; surely we will deliver thee and thy followers, except thy wife -- she is of those who remain behind.

029:033 Pickthal      And when Our messengers came unto Lot, he was troubled upon their account, for he could not protect them; but they said: Fear not, nor grieve! Lo! we are to deliver thee and thy household, (all) save thy wife, who is of those who stay behind.

029:033 Rashad       When our messengers arrived at Lot's place, they were mistreated, and he was embarrassed by their presence. But they said, "Have no fear, and do not worry. We will save you and your family, except your wife; she is doomed.

029:033 Sarwar       When Our angelic Messengers came to Lot, he was grieved and depressed to see them. They told him, "Do not be afraid or grieved. We will rescue you and your family except your wife who will remain behind.

029:033 Shakir        And when Our messengers came to Lut he was grieved on account of them, and he felt powerless (to protect) them; and they said: Fear not, nor grieve; surely we will deliver you and your followers, except your wife; she shall be of those who remain behind.

029:033 Sherali       And when Our Messengers came to Lot, he was distressed on their account and felt powerless with regard to them. And they said, `Fear not nor grieve, and we have been charged with the divine message: `We will, surely, save thee and thy family except thy wife, who is of those who remain behind,

029:035 Maulana     And certainly We have left a clear sign of it for a people who understand.

029:035 Pickthal      And verily of that We have left a clear sign for people who have sense.

029:036 Khan          And to (the people of) Madyan (Midian), We sent their brother Shu'aib (Shuaib). He said: "O my people! Worship Allah, and hope for (the reward of good deeds by worshipping Allah Alone, on) the last Day, and commit no mischief on the earth as Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes, oppressors, tyrants, mischief-makers, corrupts).

029:036 Maulana     And to Midian (We sent) their brother Shu’aib, so he said: O my people, serve Allah and fear the Latter day, and act not corruptly, making mischief, in the land.

029:036 Pickthal      And unto Midian We sent Shu'eyb, their brother. He said: O my people! Serve Allah, and look forward to the Last Day, and do not evil, making mischief, in the earth.

029:036 Rashad       To Midyan we sent their brother Shu`aib. He said, "O my people, you shall worship GOD and seek the Last Day, and do not roam the earth corruptingly."

029:036 Sarwar       We sent to the people of Midian their brother Shu`ayb. He told them, "Worship God. Have hope in the life to come. Do not spread evil in the land".

029:036 Shakir        And to Madyan (We sent) their brother Shuaib, so he said: O my people! serve Allah and fear the latter day and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.

029:036 Sherali       And to Midian WE sent their brother Shu'aib who said, `O my people, worship ALLAH, and be mindful of the Last Day and commit not iniquity in the earth, creating disorder.'

029:036 Yusufali     To the Madyan (people) (We sent) their brother Shu'aib. Then he said: "O my people! serve Allah, and fear the Last Day: nor commit evil on the earth, with intent to do mischief.”

029:037

029:037 Khan          And they belied him [Shu'aib (Shuaib)], so the earthquake seized them, and they lay (dead), prostrate in their dwellings.

029:037 Maulana     But they rejected him, so a severe earthquake overtook them and they lay prostrate in their abodes.

029:037 Pickthal      But they denied him, and the dreadful earthquake took them, and morning found them prostrate in their dwelling place.

029:037 Rashad       They disbelieved him and, consequently, the earthquake annihilated them; they were left dead in their homes by morning.

029:037 Sarwar       They rejected him so We jolted them with a violent earthquake and they were left motionless in their houses.

029:037 Shakir        But they rejected him, so a severe earthquake overtook them, and they became motionless bodies in their abode.

029:037 Sherali       But they called him a liar. So a violent earthquake seized them, and in their homes they lay prostrate upon the ground.

029:037 Yusufali     But they rejected him: Then the mighty Blast seized them, and they lay prostrate in their homes by the morning.

029:038

029:038 Khan          And 'Ad and Thamud (people)! And indeed (their destruction) is clearly apparent to you from their (ruined) dwellings. Shaitan (Satan) made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and turned them away from the (Right) Path, though they were intelligent.

029:038 Maulana     And ‘Ad and Thamud! And some of their dwellings are indeed apparent to you. And the devil made their deeds fairseeming to them, so he kept them back from the path, and they could see clearly.

029:038 Pickthal      And (the tribes of) A'ad and Thamud! (Their fate) is manifest unto you from their (ruined and deserted) dwellings. Satan made their deeds seem fair unto them and so debarred them from the Way, though they were keen observers.

029:038 Rashad       Similarly, 'Aad and Thamoud (were annihilated). This is made manifest to you through their ruins. The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, and had diverted them from the path, even though they had eyes.

029:038 Sarwar       How the people of Ad and Thamud were destroyed is evident to you from their homes. Satan made their deeds seem attractive to them and prevented them from the right path, even though they had visions.

029:038 Shakir        And (We destroyed) Ad and Samood, and from their dwellings (this) is apparent to you indeed; and the Shaitan made their deeds fair-seeming to them, so he kept them back from the path, though they were endowed with intelligence and skill,

029:038 Sherali       And WE destroyed Ad and Thamud; and it is evident to you from their dwelling places. And Satan made their deeds appear attractive to them, and thus turned them away from the right path, sagacious though they were.

029:038 Yusufali     (Remember also) the 'Ad and the Thamud (people): clearly will appear to you from (the traces) of their buildings (their fate): the Evil One made their deeds alluring to them, and kept them back from the Path, though they were gifted with intelligence and skill.

029:039

029:039 Khan          And (We destroyed also) Qarun (Korah), Fir'aun (Pharaoh), and Haman. And indeed Musa (Moses) came to them with clear Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but they were arrogant in the land, yet they could not outstrip Us (escape Our punishment).

029:039 Maulana     And Korah and Pharaoh and Haman! And certainly Moses came to them with clear arguments, but they behaved haughtily in the land; and they could not outstrip (us).

029:039 Pickthal      And Korah, Pharaoh and Haman! Moses came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but they were boastful in the land. And they were not winners (in the race).

029:039 Rashad       Also Qaaroon, Pharaoh, and Hamaan; Moses went to them with clear signs. But they continued to commit tyranny on earth. Consequently, they could not evade (the retribution).

029:039 Sarwar       Korah, the Pharaoh, and Haman were also destroyed. Moses had brought them illustrious miracles, but they were puffed-up with pride in the land and they could not defeat Us.

029:039 Shakir        And (We destroyed) Qaroun and Firon and Haman; and certainly Musa came to them with clear arguments, but they behaved haughtily in the land; yet they could not outstrip (Us).

029:039 Sherali       And WE destroyed Korah and Pharaoh and Haman. And Moses did come to them with manifest Signs, but they behaved arrogantly in the land, yet they could not outstrip Us.

029:039 Yusufali     (Remember also) Qarun, Pharaoh, and Haman: there came to them Moses with Clear Signs, but they behaved with insolence on the earth; yet they could not overreach (Us).

029:040

029:040 Khan          So We punished each (of them) for his sins, of them were some on whom We sent Hasiban (a violent wind with shower of stones) [as the people of Lout (Lot)], and of them were some who were overtaken by As-Saihah [torment - awful cry, etc. (as Thamud or Shu'aib's people)], and of them were some whom We caused the earth to swallow [as Qarun (Korah)], and of them were some whom We drowned [as the people of Nuh (Noah), or Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his people]. It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves.

029:040 Maulana     So each one We punished for his sin. Of them was he on whom We sent a violent storm, and of them was he whom the rumbling overtook, and of them was he whom We caused the earth to swallow, and of them was he whom We drowned. And it was not Allah, Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves.

029:040 Pickthal      So We took each one in his sin; of them was he on whom We sent a hurricane, and of them was he who was overtaken by the (Awful) Cry, and of them was he whom We caused the earth to swallow, and of them was he whom We drowned. It was not for Allah to wrong them, but they wronged themselves.

029:040 Rashad       All those disbelievers were doomed as a consequence of their sins. Some of them we annihilated by violent winds, some were annihilated by the quake, some we caused the earth to swallow, and some we drowned. GOD is not the One who wronged them; it is they who wronged their own souls.

029:040 Sarwar       We punished all of these people because of their sin. Some of them were struck by a violent sand-storm, some by a blast of sound, others were swallowed up by the earth, and some were drowned (in the sea). God did not do injustice to them, but they had wronged themselves.

029:040 Shakir        So each We punished for his sin; of them was he on whom We sent down a violent storm, and of them was he whom the rumbling overtook, and of them was he whom We made to be swallowed up by the earth, and of them was he whom We drowned; and it did not beseem Allah that He should be unjust to them, but they were unjust to their own souls.

029:040 Sherali       So each one of them WE seized for his sin; of them were those against whom WE sent a violent sandstorm, and of them were those whom a roaring blast overtook, and of them were those whom WE caused the earth to swallow up, and of them were those whom WE drowned. And ALLAH did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves.

029:040 Yusufali     Each one of them We seized for his crime: of them, against some We sent a violent tornado (with showers of stones); some were caught by a (mighty) Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up; and some We drowned (in the waters): It was not Allah Who injured (or oppressed) them:" They injured (and oppressed) their own souls.

029:041

029:041 Khan          The likeness of those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) other than Allah is as the likeness of a spider, who builds (for itself) a house, but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider's house; if they but knew.

029:041 Maulana     The parable of those who take guardians besides Allah is as the parable of the spider that makes for itself a house; and surely the frailest of the houses is the spider’s house -- if they but knew!

029:041 Pickthal      The likeness of those who choose other patrons than Allah is as the likeness of the spider when she taketh unto herself a house, and lo! the frailest of all houses is the spider's house, if they but knew.

029:041 Rashad       The allegory of those who accept other masters beside GOD is that of the spider and her home; the flimsiest of all homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew.

029:041 Sarwar       The belief of considering other things as one's guardians besides God is as feeble as a spider's web. The spider's web is the frailest of all dwellings, if only they knew it.

029:041 Shakir        The parable of those who take guardians besides Allah is as the parable of the spider that makes for itself a house; and most surely the frailest of the houses is the spider's house did they but know.

029:041 Sherali       The case of those who take helpers beside ALLAH is like unto the case of the spider that takes to itself a house; and, surely, the frailest of all houses is the house of the spider, if they but knew.

029:041 Yusufali     The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is that of the spider, who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the spider's house;- if they but knew.

029:042

029:042 Khan          Verily, Allah knows what things they invoke instead of Him. He is the All-Mighty, the All- Wise.

029:042 Maulana     Surely Allah knows whatever they call upon besides Him. And He is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:042 Pickthal      Lo! Allah knoweth what thing they invoke instead of Him. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:042 Rashad       GOD knows full well that whatever they worship beside Him are really nothing. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.

029:042 Sarwar       God knows whatever they worship besides Him; He is the Majestic and All-wise.

029:042 Shakir        Surely Allah knows whatever thing they call upon besides Him; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:042 Sherali       Verily, ALLAH knows whatever they call upon beside HIM; and HE is the Mighty, the Wise.

029:042 Yusufali     Verily Allah doth know of (every thing) whatever that they call upon besides Him: and He is Exalted (in power), Wise.

029:043

029:043 Khan          And these similitudes We put forward for mankind, but none will understand them except those who have knowledge (of Allah and His Signs, etc.).

029:043 Maulana     And these parables, We set them forth for men, and none understand them but the learned.

029:043 Pickthal      As for these similitudes, We coin them for mankind, but none will grasp their meaning save the wise.

029:043 Rashad       We cite these examples for the people, and none appreciate them except the knowledgeable.

029:043 Sarwar       These are parables which We tell to human being, but only the learned ones understand them.

029:043 Shakir        And (as for) these examples, We set them forth for men, and none understand them but the learned.

029:043 Sherali       And these are similitudes which WE set forth for mankind, but only those understand them who have knowledge.

029:043 Yusufali     And such are the Parables We set forth for mankind, but only those understand them who have knowledge.

029:044

029:044 Khan          (Allah says to His Prophet Muhammad SAW): "Allah (Alone) created the heavens and the earth with truth (and none shared Him in their creation)." Verily! Therein is surely a sign for those who believe.

029:044 Maulana     Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth. Surely there is a sign in this for the believers.

029:044 Pickthal      Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth. Lo! therein is indeed a portent for believers.

029:044 Rashad       GOD created the heavens and the earth, truthfully. This provides a sufficient proof for the believers.

029:044 Sarwar       God has created the heavens and the earth for a genuine purpose. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the believers.

029:044 Shakir        Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth; most surely there is a sign in this for the believers.

029:044 Sherali       ALLAH created the heavens and the earth in accordance with the requirements of wisdom. In that, surely, is a Sign for the believers.

029:044 Yusufali     Allah created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): verily in that is a Sign for those who believe.

029:045

029:045                   Part 21.

029:045                   Section 5: The Qur’an is a Purifier

029:045 Khan          Recite (O Muhammad SAW) what has been revealed to you of the Book (the Qur'an), and perform As- Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat). Verily, As-Salat (the prayer) prevents from Al-Fahsha' (i.e. great sins of every kind, unlawful sexual intercourse, etc.) and Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism, and every kind of evil wicked deed, etc.) and the remembering (praising, etc.) of (you by) Allah (in front of the angels) is greater indeed [than your remembering (praising, etc.) Allah in prayers, etc.]. And Allah knows what you do.

029:045 Maulana     Recite that which has been revealed to thee of the Book and keep up prayer. Surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil; and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest (force). And Allah knows what you do.

029:045 Pickthal      Recite that which hath been inspired in thee of the Scripture, and establish worship. Lo! worship preserveth from lewdness and iniquity, but verily remembrance of Allah is more important. And Allah knoweth what ye do.

029:045 Rashad       You shall recite what is revealed to you of the scripture, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), for the Contact Prayers prohibit evil and vice. But the remembrance of GOD (through Salat) is the most important objective. GOD knows everything you do.

029:045 Sarwar       (Muhammad), recite to them what has been revealed to you in the Book and be steadfast in prayer; prayer keeps one away from indecency and evil. It is the greatest act of worshipping God. God knows what you do.

029:045 Shakir        Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book and keep up prayer; surely prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is the greatest, and Allah knows what you do.

029:045 Sherali       Recite that which has been revealed of the Book and observe Prayer. Surely, Prayer restrains one from indecency and manifest evil; and the remembrance of ALLAH is the greatest virtue. And ALLAH knows what you do.

029:045 Yusufali     Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee, and establish regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah knows the (deeds) that ye do.

029:046

029:046 Khan          And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to them): "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims)."

029:046 Maulana     And argue not with the People of the Book except by what is best, save such of them as act unjustly. But say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him we submit.

029:046 Pickthal      And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender.

029:046 Rashad       Do not argue with the people of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) except in the nicest possible manner - unless they transgress - and say, "We believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you, and our god and your god is one and the same; to Him we are submitters."

029:046 Sarwar       Do not argue with the People of the Book except only by the best manner, except the unjust among them. Tell them, "We believe in what is revealed to us and to you. Our Lord and your Lord is one. We have submitted ourselves to His will".

029:046 Shakir        And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our Allah and your Allah is One, and to Him do we submit.

029:046 Sherali       And argue not with the people of the Book except with what is best as an argument, but argue not at all with such of them as are unjust. And say, `We believe in that which has been revealed to us and that which has been revealed to you; and our God and your God is One, and to HIM we submit.'

029:046 Yusufali     And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam).”

029:047

029:047 Khan          And thus We have sent down the Book (i.e this Qur'an) to you (O Muhammad SAW), and those whom We gave the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) aforetime] believe therein as also do some of these (who are present with you now like 'Abdullah bin Salam) and none but the disbelievers reject Our Ayat [(proofs, signs, verses, lessons, etc., and deny Our Oneness of Lordship and Our Oneness of worship and Our Oneness of Our Names and Qualities: i.e. Islamic Monotheism)].

029:047 Maulana     And thus have We revealed the Book to thee. So those whom We have given the Book believe in it, and of these there are those who believe in it; and none deny Our messages except the disbelievers.

029:047 Pickthal      In like manner We have revealed unto thee the Scripture, and those unto whom We gave the Scripture aforetime will believe therein; and of these (also) there are some who believe therein. And none deny Our revelations save the disbelievers.

029:047 Rashad       We have revealed to you this scripture, and those whom we blessed with the previous scripture will believe in it. Also, some of your people will believe in it. Indeed, those who disregard our revelations are the real disbelievers.

029:047 Sarwar       We have revealed the Book to you. Some of the People of the Book and some of the pagans also believe in it. No one rejects Our revelations except the infidels.

029:047 Shakir        And thus have We revealed the Book to you. So those whom We have given the Book believe in it, and of these there are those who believe in it, and none deny Our communications except the unbelievers.

029:047 Sherali       And in like manner have WE sent down the Book to thee; so those to whom WE have given true knowledge of the Book (Torah) believe in it (the Qur'an); and of these Meccans also there are some who believe in it. And none but the disbelievers persist in rejecting Our Signs.

029:047 Yusufali     And thus (it is) that We have sent down the Book to thee. So the People of the Book believe therein, as also do some of these (pagan Arabs): and none but Unbelievers reject our signs.

029:048

029:048 Khan          Neither did you (O Muhammad SAW) read any book before it (this Qur'an), nor did you write any book (whatsoever) with your right hand. In that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted.

029:048 Maulana     And thou didst not recite before it any book, nor didst thou transcribe one with thy right hand, for then could the liars have doubted.

029:048 Pickthal      And thou (O Muhammad) wast not a reader of any scripture before it, nor didst thou write it with thy right hand, for then might those have doubted, who follow falsehood.

029:048 Rashad       You did not read the previous scriptures, nor did you write them with your hand. In that case, the rejectors would have had reason to harbor doubts.

029:048 Sarwar       You were not able to read or write before the Quran was revealed to you; otherwise, the followers of falsehood would have tried to confuse the matter.

029:048 Shakir        And you did not recite before it any book, nor did you transcribe one with your right hand, for then could those who say untrue things have doubted.

029:048 Sherali       And thou didst not recite any Book before the Qur'an, nor didst thou write one with thy right hand; in that case the liars would have had cause to doubt.

029:048 Yusufali     And thou wast not (able) to recite a Book before this (Book came), nor art thou (able) to transcribe it with thy right hand: In that case, indeed, would the talkers of vanities have doubted.

029:049

029:049 Khan          Nay, but they, the clear Ayat [i.e the description and the qualities of Prophet Muhammad SAW written like verses in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] are preserved in the breasts of those who have been given knowledge (from the people of the Scriptures). And none but the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) deny Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).

029:049 Maulana     Nay, it is clear messages in the hearts of those who are granted knowledge. And none deny Our messages except the iniquitous.

029:049 Pickthal      But it is clear revelations in the hearts of those who have been given knowledge, and none deny Our revelations save wrong-doers.

029:049 Rashad       In fact, these revelations are clear in the chests of those who possess knowledge. Only the wicked will disregard our revelations.

029:049 Sarwar       In fact, the Quran consists of illustrious verses that exist in the hearts of those who have knowledge. No one rejects Our revelations except the unjust ones.

029:049 Shakir        Nay! these are clear communications in the breasts of those who are granted knowledge; and none deny Our communications except the unjust.

029:049 Sherali       Nay, it is a collection of clear Signs in the hearts of those who are given knowledge. And none but the wrongdoers deny Our Signs.

029:049 Yusufali     Nay, here are Signs self-evident in the hearts of those endowed with knowledge: and none but the unjust reject Our Signs.

029:050

029:050 Khan          And they say: "Why are not signs sent down to him from his Lord? Say: "The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner."

029:050 Maulana     And they say: Why are not signs sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: Signs are with Allah only, and I am only a plain warner.

029:050 Pickthal      And they say: Why are not portents sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: Portents are with Allah only, and I am but a plain warner.

029:050 Rashad       They said, "If only miracles could come down to him from his Lord!" Say, "All miracles come only from GOD; I am no more than a manifest warner."

029:050 Sarwar       They say, "Why a miracle is not sent to him from his Lord." Say, "Miracles are in the hands of God. I am simply a warner."

029:050 Shakir        And they say: Why are not signs sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.

029:050 Sherali       And they say, `Why are not Signs sent down to him from his Lord?'  Say, `The Signs are with ALLAH, and I am but a plain warner,'

029:050 Yusufali     Ye they say: "Why are not Signs sent down to him from his Lord?" Say: "The signs are indeed with Allah: and I am indeed a clear Warner.”

029:051

029:051 Khan          Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur'an) which is recited to them? Verily, herein is mercy and a reminder (or an admonition) for a people who believe.

029:051 Maulana     Is it not enough for them that We have revealed to thee the Book which is recited to them? Surely there is mercy in this and a reminder for a people who believe.

029:051 Pickthal      Is it not enough for them that We have sent down unto thee the Scripture which is read unto them? Lo! herein verily is mercy, and a reminder for folk who believe.

029:051 Rashad       Is it not enough of a miracle that we sent down to you this book, being recited to them? This is indeed a mercy and a reminder for people who believe.

029:051 Sarwar       Is it not enough for them that We have revealed the Book to you to be recited to them. It is a mercy and a reminder for the believers.

029:051 Shakir        Is it not enough for them that We have revealed to you the Book which is recited to them? Most surely there is mercy in this and a reminder for a people who believe.

029:051 Sherali       Is it not enough for a Sign for them that WE have sent down to thee the perfect Book which is recited to them?  Verily, in this there is great mercy and a reminder for a people who believe.

029:051 Yusufali     And is it not enough for them that we have sent down to thee the Book which is rehearsed to them? Verily, in it is Mercy and a Reminder to those who believe.

029:052

029:052                   Section 6: Warning and Consolation

029:052 Khan          Say (to them O Muhammad SAW): "Sufficient is Allah for a witness between me and you. He knows what is in the heavens and on earth." And those who believe in Batil (all false deities other than Allah), and disbelieve in Allah and (in His Oneness), it is they who are the losers.

029:052 Maulana     Say: Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you -- He knows what is in the heavens and the earth. And those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve in Allah, these it is that are the losers.

029:052 Pickthal      Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Allah sufficeth for witness between me and you. He knoweth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. And those who believe in vanity and disbelieve in Allah, they it is who are the losers.

029:052 Rashad       Say, "GOD suffices as a witness between me and you. He knows everything in the heavens and the earth. Surely, those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve in GOD are the real losers."

029:052 Sarwar       Say, "God is sufficient as a witness between me and you. He knows all that is in the heavens and the earth." Those who have faith in falsehood and disbelieve in God are certainly lost.

029:052 Shakir        Say: Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you; He knows what is in the heavens and the earth. And (as for) those who believe in the falsehood and disbelieve in Allah, these it is that are the losers.

029:052 Sherali       Say, `ALLAH is sufficient as a Witness between me and you. HE knows what is in the heavens and the earth. And as for those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve in ALLAH, they it is who are the losers.'

029:052 Yusufali     Say: "Enough is Allah for a witness between me and you: He knows what is in the heavens and on earth. And it is those who believe in vanities and reject Allah, that will perish (in the end).

029:053

029:053 Khan          And they ask you to hasten on the torment (for them), and had it not been for a term appointed, the torment would certainly have come to them. And surely, it will come upon them suddenly while they perceive not!

029:053 Maulana     And they ask thee to hasten on the chastisement. And had not a term been appointed, the chastisement would certainly have come to them. And certainly it will come to them all of a sudden, while they perceive not.

029:053 Pickthal      They bid thee hasten on the doom (of Allah). And if a term had not been appointed, the doom would assuredly have come unto them (ere now). And verily it will come upon them suddenly when they perceive not.

029:053 Rashad       They challenge you to bring the retribution! If it were not for a predetermined appointment, the retribution would have come to them immediately. Certainly, it will come to them suddenly, when they least expect it.

029:053 Sarwar       They demand you to bring upon them torment immediately. Had not the time been fixed, the torment would certainly have approached them. It would have come to them suddenly and they would not have even realized how it came.

029:053 Shakir        And they ask you to hasten on the chastisement; and had not a term been appointed, the chastisement would certainly have come to them; and most certainly it will come to them all of a sudden while they will not perceive.

029:053 Sherali       They ask thee to hasten on the punishment, and had there not been an appointed term, the punishment would have come upon them. And it shall, surely, overtake them unexpectedly, while they perceive not.

029:053 Yusufali     They ask thee to hasten on the Punishment (for them): had it not been for a term (of respite) appointed, the Punishment would certainly have come to them: and it will certainly reach them,- of a sudden, while they perceive not!

029:054

029:054 Khan          They ask you to hasten on the torment. And verily! Hell, of a surety, will encompass the disbelievers.

029:054 Maulana     They ask thee to hasten on the chastisement, and surely hell encompasses the disbelievers --

029:054 Pickthal      They bid thee hasten on the doom, when lo! hell verily will encompass the disbelievers

029:054 Rashad       They challenge you to bring retribution! Hell already surrounds the disbelievers.

029:054 Sarwar       They demand you to bring upon them the torment immediately. Hell will certainly engulf the unbelievers.

029:054 Shakir        They ask you to hasten on the chastisement, and most surely hell encompasses the unbelievers;

029:054 Sherali       They ask thee to hasten on the punishment; but Hell will, certainly, encompass the disbelievers;

029:054 Yusufali     They ask thee to hasten on the Punishment: but, of a surety, Hell will encompass the Rejecters of Faith!-

029:055

029:055 Khan          On the Day when the torment (Hell-fire) shall cover them from above them and from underneath their feet, and it will be said: "Taste what you used to do."

029:055 Maulana     The day when the chastisement will cover them for above them, and from beneath their feet! And he will say: Taste what you did.

029:055 Pickthal      On the day when the doom will overwhelm them from above them and from underneath their feet, and He will say: Taste what ye used to do!

029:055 Rashad       The day will come when the retribution overwhelms them, from above them and from beneath their feet; He will say, "Taste the consequences of your works."

029:055 Sarwar       They will be told on the Day of Judgment, when the torment will surround them from all sides, "Suffer the consequences of your deeds."

029:055 Shakir        On the day when the chastisement shall cover them from above them, and from beneath their feet; and He shall say: Taste what you did.

029:055 Sherali       On the day when the punishment will overwhelm them from above them and from underneath their feet, and HE will say, `Taste ye the fruit of your actions.'

029:055 Yusufali     On the Day that the Punishment shall cover them from above them and from below them, and (a Voice) shall say: "Taste ye (the fruits) of your deeds!”

029:056

029:056 Khan          O My slaves who believe! Certainly, spacious is My earth. Therefore worship Me (Alone)."

029:056 Maulana     O My servants who believe, surely My earth is vast, so serve Me only.

029:056 Pickthal      O my bondmen who believe! Lo! My earth is spacious. Therefor serve Me only.

029:056 Rashad       O My servants who believed, My earth is spacious, so worship Me.

029:056 Sarwar       My believing servants, My land is vast. Worship Me alone.

029:056 Shakir        O My servants who believe! surely My earth is vast, therefore Me alone should you serve.

029:056 Sherali       O MY servants who believe !  verily, MY earth is vast; so worship ME alone.

029:056 Yusufali     O My servants who believe! truly, spacious is My Earth: therefore serve ye Me - (and Me alone)!

029:057

029:057 Khan          Everyone shall taste the death. Then unto Us you shall be returned.

029:057 Maulana     Every soul must taste of death; then to Us you will be returned.

029:057 Pickthal      Every soul will taste of death. Then unto Us ye will be returned.
