039:000 Translations of the Qur'an, Chapter 39: AZ-ZUMAR (THE TROOPS, THRONGS). Total Verses: 75. Revealed At: MAKKA

039:000                   In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

039:001

039:001                   Section 1: Obedience to Allah

039:001 Khan          The revelation of this Book (the Qur'an) is from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.

039:001 Maulana     The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

039:001 Pickthal      The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

039:001 Rashad       This is a revelation of the scripture, from GOD, the Almighty, the Wise.

039:001 Sarwar       This Book is a revelation from God, the Majestic and All-Wise.

039:001 Shakir        The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

039:001 Sherali       The revelation of this Book is from ALLAH, the Mighty, the Wise.

039:001 Yusufali     The revelation of this Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Power, full of Wisdom.

039:002

039:002 Khan          Verily, We have sent down the Book to you (O Muhammad SAW) in truth: So worship Allah (Alone) by doing religious deeds sincerely for Allah's sake only, (and not to show-off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship).

039:002 Maulana     Surely We have revealed to thee the Book with truth, so serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.

039:002 Pickthal      Lo! We have revealed the Scripture unto thee (Muhammad) with truth; so worship Allah, making religion pure for Him (only).

039:002 Rashad       We sent down to you this scripture, truthfully; you shall worship GOD, devoting your religion to Him alone.

039:002 Sarwar       We have revealed the Book to you in all truth. Worship God and be devoted to His religion.

039:002 Shakir        Surely We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, therefore serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.

039:002 Sherali       Surely, it is WE Who have revealed the Book to thee comprising the whole truth, so worship ALLAH, being sincere to HIM in obedience.

039:002 Yusufali     Verily it is We Who have revealed the Book to thee in Truth: so serve Allah, offering Him sincere devotion.

039:003

039:003 Khan          Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever.

039:003 Maulana     Now surely sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone). And those who choose protectors besides Him (say): We serve them only that they may bring us nearer to Allah. Surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ. Surely Allah guides not him who is a liar, ungrateful.

039:003 Pickthal      Surely pure religion is for Allah only. And those who choose protecting friends beside Him (say): We worship them only that they may bring us near unto Allah. Lo! Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Lo! Allah guideth not him who is a liar, an ingrate.

039:003 Rashad       Absolutely, the religion shall be devoted to GOD alone. Those who set up idols beside Him say, "We idolize them only to bring us closer to GOD; for they are in a better position!" GOD will judge them regarding their disputes. GOD does not guide such liars, disbelievers.

039:003 Sarwar       The religion of God is certainly pure. Concerning those whom they consider as their guardians besides God, they say, "We only worship them so that they may make our positions nearer to God." God will certainly issue His decree about their differences. God does not guide the liars and the disbelievers.

039:003 Shakir        Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a liar, ungrateful.

039:003 Sherali       Remember, it is to ALLAH alone that sincere obedience is due. And those who take as protectors others beside HIM, say, `We serve them only that they may bring us near to ALLAH in station.' Surely, ALLAH will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Surely, ALLAH guides not him who is an ungrateful liar.

039:003 Yusufali     Is it not to Allah that sincere devotion is due? But those who take for protectors other than Allah (say): "We only serve them in order that they may bring us nearer to Allah." Truly Allah will judge between them in that wherein they differ. But Allah guides not such as are false and ungrateful.

039:004

039:004 Khan          Had Allah willed to take a son (or offspring or children), He could have chosen whom He pleased out of those whom He created. But glory be to Him! (He is above such things). He is Allah, the One, the Irresistible.

039:004 Maulana     If Allah desired to take a son to Himself, He could have chosen those He pleased out of those whom He has created -- Glory be to Him! He is Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all).

039:004 Pickthal      If Allah had willed to choose a son, He could have chosen what He would of that which He hath created. Be He Glorified! He is Allah, the One, the Absolute.

039:004 Rashad       If GOD wanted to have a son, He could have chosen whomever He willed from among His creations. Be He glorified; He is GOD, the One, the Supreme.

039:004 Sarwar       Had God wanted to have a son, He would have chosen one from His creatures according to His will. God is too Exalted to have a son. He is One and Almighty.

039:004 Shakir        If Allah desire to take a son to Himself, He will surely choose those He pleases from what He has created. Glory be to Him: He is Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all).

039:004 Sherali       If ALLAH had desired to take to Himself a son, HE could have chosen whom HE pleased out of what HE creates. Holy is HE ! HE is ALLAH, the One, the Most Supreme.

039:004 Yusufali     Had Allah wished to take to Himself a son, He could have chosen whom He pleased out of those whom He doth create: but Glory be to Him! (He is above such things.) He is Allah, the One, the Irresistible.

039:005

039:005 Khan          He has created the heavens and the earth with truth. He makes the night to go in the day and makes the day to go in the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon. Each running (on a fixed course) for an appointed term. Verily, He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.

039:005 Maulana     He has created the heavens and the earth with truth; He makes the night cover the day and makes the day overtake the night, and He has made the sun and the moon subservient; each one moves on to an assigned term. Now surely He is the Mighty, the Forgiver.

039:005 Pickthal      He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth. He maketh night to succeed day, and He maketh day to succeed night, and He constraineth the sun and the moon to give service, each running on for an appointed term. Is not He the Mighty, the Forgiver?

039:005 Rashad       He created the heavens and the earth truthfully. He rolls the night over the day, and rolls the day over the night. He committed the sun and the moon, each running for a finite period. Absolutely, He is the Almighty, the Forgiving.

039:005 Sarwar       He has created the heavens and the earth for a genuine purpose. He covers the night with the day and the day with the night and has subdued the sun and the moon, each of which floats for an appointed time. God is certainly Majestic and All-Forgiving.

039:005 Shakir        He has created the heavens and the earth with the truth; He makes the night cover the day and makes the day overtake the night, and He has made the sun and the moon subservient; each one runs on to an assigned term; now surely He is the Mighty, the great Forgiver.

039:005 Sherali       HE created the heavens and the earth in accordance with the requirements of wisdom. HE makes the night to cover the day, and HE makes the day to cover the night; and he has pressed the sun and the moon into service; each pursues its course until an appointed time. Remember, it is HE alone Who is the Mighty, the Great Forgiver.

039:005 Yusufali     He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night: He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His law): Each one follows a course for a time appointed. Is not He the Exalted in Power - He Who forgives again and again?

039:006

039:006 Khan          He created you (all) from a single person (Adam); then made from him his wife [Hawwa' (Eve)]. And He has sent down for you of cattle eight pairs (of the sheep, two, male and female; of the goats, two, male and female; of the oxen, two, male and female; and of the camels, two, male and female). He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation in three veils of darkness, such is Allah your Lord. His is the kingdom, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). How then are you turned away?

039:006 Maulana     He created you from a single being, then made its mates of the same (kind). And He sent down for you eight of the cattle in pairs. He creates you in the wombs of your mothers -- creation after creation -- in triple darkness. That is Allah, your Lord; His is the kingdom. There is no God but He. How are you then turned away?

039:006 Pickthal      He created you from one being, then from that (being) He made its mate; and He hath provided for you of cattle eight kinds. He created you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, in a threefold gloom. Such is Allah, your Lord. His is the Sovereignty. There is no Allah save Him. How then are ye turned away?

039:006 Rashad       He created you from one person, then created from him his mate. He sent down to you eight kinds of livestock. He creates you in your mothers' bellies, creation after creation, in trimesters of darkness. Such is GOD your Lord. To Him belongs all sovereignty. There is no other god beside Him. How could you deviate?

039:006 Sarwar       He has created you from a single soul. Out of this He created your spouse. He sent you eight pairs of cattle. He creates you for a second time in the wombs of your mothers behind three curtains of darkness. He is your Lord to whom belongs the Kingdom. He is the only Lord. Where then will you turn away?.

039:006 Shakir        He has created you from a single being, then made its mate of the same (kind), and He has made for you eight of the cattle in pairs. He creates you in the wombs of your mothers-- a creation after a creation-- in triple darkness; that is Allah your Lord, His is the kingdom; there is no god but He; whence are you then turned away?

039:006 Sherali       HE created you from a single being; then from that HE made its mate; and HE has sent down for you of the cattle eight pairs. HE creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, through three stages of darkness. This is ALLAH, your Lord. HIS is the Kingdom. There is no god but HE. Wither then are you being turned away?

039:006 Yusufali     He created you (all) from a single person: then created, of like nature, his mate; and he sent down for you eight head of cattle in pairs: He makes you, in the wombs of your mothers, in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness. such is Allah, your Lord and Cherisher: to Him belongs (all) dominion. There is no god but He: then how are ye turned away (from your true Centre)?

039:007

039:007 Khan          If you disbelieve, then verily, Allah is not in need of you, He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you. No bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, so He will inform you what you used to do. Verily, He is the All-Knower of that which is in (men's) breasts.

039:007 Maulana     If you are ungrateful, then surely Allah is above need of you. And He likes not ungratefulness in His servants. And if you are grateful, He likes it for you. And no bearer of a burden will bear another’s burden. Then to your Lord is your return, then will He inform you of what you did. Surely He is Knower of what is in the breasts.

039:007 Pickthal      If ye are thankless, yet Allah is Independent of you, though He is not pleased with thanklessness for His bondmen; and if ye are thankful He is pleased therewith for you. No laden soul will bear another's load. Then unto your Lord is your return; and He will tell you what ye used to do. Lo! He knoweth what is in the breasts (of men).

039:007 Rashad       If you disbelieve, GOD does not need anyone. But He dislikes to see His servants make the wrong decision. If you decide to be appreciative, He is pleased for you. No soul bears the sins of any other soul. Ultimately, to your Lord is your return, then He will inform you of everything you had done. He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

039:007 Sarwar       If you disbelieve, know that God is certainly independent of you. He does not want disbelief for His servants. If you give thanks, He will accept it from you. No one will be responsible for the sins of others. To your Lord you will all return and He will tell you about what you have done. He knows best what the hearts contain.

039:007 Shakir        If you are ungrateful, then surely Allah is Self-sufficient above all need of you; and He does not like ungratefulness in His servants; and if you are grateful, He likes it in you; and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, then will He inform you of what you did; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the breasts.

039:007 Sherali       If you are ungrateful, surely ALLAH is Self-Sufficient, being independent of you. And HE is not pleased with ingratitude in HIS servants. But if you are grateful, HE likes it in you. And no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return; and HE will inform you of what you have been doing. Surely, HE knows full well all that is hidden in the breasts.

039:007 Yusufali     If ye reject (Allah), Truly Allah hath no need of you; but He liketh not ingratitude from His servants: if ye are grateful, He is pleased with you. No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another. In the end, to your Lord is your Return, when He will tell you the truth of all that ye did (in this life). for He knoweth well all that is in (men's) hearts.

039:008

039:008 Khan          And when some hurt touches man, he cries to his Lord (Allah Alone), turning to Him in repentance, but when He bestows a favour upon him from Himself, he forgets that for which he cried for before, and he sets up rivals to Allah, in order to mislead others from His Path. Say: "Take pleasure in your disbelief for a while: surely, you are (one) of the dwellers of the Fire!"

039:008 Maulana     And when distress afflicts a man he calls upon his Lord, turning to Him; then when He grants him a favour from Him, he forgets that for which he called upon Him before, and sets up rivals to Allah that he may cause (men) to stray from His path. Say: Enjoy thine ungratefulness for a little, surely thou art of the companions of the Fire.

039:008 Pickthal      And when some hurt toucheth man, he crieth unto his Lord, turning unto Him (repentant). Then, when He granteth him a boon from Him he forgetteth that for which he cried unto Him before, and setteth up rivals to Allah that he may beguile (men) from his way. Say (O Muhammad, unto such an one): Take pleasure in thy disbelief a while. Lo! thou art of the owners of the Fire.

039:008 Rashad       When the human being is afflicted, he implores his Lord, sincerely devoted to Him. But as soon as He blesses him, he forgets his previous imploring, sets up idols to rank with GOD and to divert others from His path. Say, "Enjoy your disbelief temporarily; you have incurred the hellfire."

039:008 Sarwar       When the human being is afflicted with hardship, he starts to pray to his Lord and turns to Him in repentance. When God grants him a favor, he forgets the hardship about which he had prayed to God and starts to consider equal to God things that lead him astray from His path. (Muhammad), tell him, "You can only enjoy in your disbelief for a short time. You will certainly be a dweller of hell fire".

039:008 Shakir        And when distress afflicts a man he calls upon his Lord turning to Him frequently; then when He makes him possess a favor from Him, he forgets that for which he called upon Him before, and sets up rivals to Allah that he may cause (men) to stray off from His path. Say: Enjoy yourself in your ungratefulness a little, surely you are of the inmates of the fire.

039:008 Sherali       And when an affliction befalls man, he calls upon his Lord, turning penitently to HIM.  Then, when HE confers upon him a favour from Himself, he forgets what he used to pray for before, and starts assigning rivals to ALLAH, that he may lead people astray from HIS way. Say, `Profit from thy disbelief a little; while in the end thou art, surely, of the inmates of the Fire.'

039:008 Yusufali     When some trouble toucheth man, he crieth unto his Lord, turning to Him in repentance: but when He bestoweth a favour upon him as from Himself, (man) doth forget what he cried and prayed for before, and he doth set up rivals unto Allah, thus misleading others from Allah's Path. Say, "Enjoy thy blasphemy for a little while: verily thou art (one) of the Companions of the Fire!”

039:009

039:009 Khan          Is one who is obedient to Allah, prostrating himself or standing (in prayer) during the hours of the night, fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord (like one who disbelieves)? Say: "Are those who know equal to those who know not?" It is only men of understanding who will remember (i.e. get a lesson from Allah's Signs and Verses).

039:009 Maulana     Is he who is obedient during hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing, taking care of the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord --? Say: Are those who know and those who know not alike? Only men of understanding mind.

 

039:009 Pickthal      Is he who payeth adoration in the watches of the night, prostrate and standing, bewaring of the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord, (to be accounted equal with a disbeliever)? Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Are those who know equal with those who know not? But only men of understanding will pay heed.

039:009 Rashad       Is it not better to be one of those who meditate in the night, prostrating and staying up, being aware of the Hereafter, and seeking the mercy of their Lord? Say, "Are those who know equal to those who do not know?" Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.

039:009 Sarwar       Can this one be considered equal to one who worships God during the night, prostrating and standing, who has fear of the Day of Judgment, and who has hope in the mercy of his Lord? Say, "Are those who know equal to those who do not know? Only the people of reason take heed".

039:009 Shakir        What! he who is obedient during hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing, takes care of the hereafter and hopes for the mercy of his Lord! Say: Are those who know and those who do not know alike? Only the men of understanding are mindful.

039:009 Sherali       Is he who prays devoutly to ALLAH in the hours of the night, prostrating himself and standing in Prayer and fears the Hereafter and hopes for the mercy of his Lord, like him who is disobedient?  Say, `Are those who know equal to those who know not?'  Verily, only those endowed with understanding will take heed.

039:009 Yusufali     Is one who worships devoutly during the hour of the night prostrating himself or standing (in adoration), who takes heed of the Hereafter, and who places his hope in the Mercy of his Lord - (like one who does not)? Say: "Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition.

039:010

039:010                   Section 2: Believers and Disbelievers

039:010 Khan          Say (O Muhammad SAW): "O My slaves who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism), be afraid of your Lord (Allah) and keep your duty to Him. Good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world, and Allah's earth is spacious (so if you cannot worship Allah at a place, then go to another)! Only those who are patient shall receive their rewards in full, without reckoning."

039:010 Maulana     Say: O My servants who believe; keep your duty to your Lord. For those who do good in this world is good, and Allah’s earth is spacious. Truly the steadfast will be paid their reward without measure.

039:010 Pickthal      Say: O My bondmen who believe! Observe your duty to your Lord. For those who do good in this world there is good, and Allah's earth is spacious. Verily the steadfast will be paid their wages without stint.

039:010 Rashad       Say, "O My servants who believed, you shall reverence your Lord." For those who worked righteousness in this world, a good reward. GOD's earth is spacious, and those who steadfastly persevere will receive their recompense generously, without limits.

039:010 Sarwar       Say to My believing servants, "Have fear of your Lord. Those who act righteously in this life will receive good reward. The land of God is vast. God will recompense the deeds of those who have exercised patience, without keeping an account".

039:010 Shakir        Say: O my servants who believe! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord; for those who do good in this world is good, and Allah's earth is spacious; only the patient will be paid back their reward in full without measure.

039:010 Sherali       Say, `O ye MY servants who believe, fear your Lord. There is good for those who do good in this life. And ALLAH's earth is spacious. Verily, the steadfast will have their reward without measure.'

039:010 Yusufali     Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is Allah's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!”

039:011

039:011 Khan          Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah (Alone) by obeying Him and doing religious deeds sincerely for Allah's sake only and not to show off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship;

039:011 Maulana     Say: I am commanded to serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience,

039:011 Pickthal      Say (O Muhammad): Lo! I am commanded to worship Allah, making religion pure for Him (only).

039:011 Rashad       Say, "I have been commanded to worship GOD, devoting the religion absolutely to Him alone.

039:011 Sarwar       Say, "I am commanded to worship God and be devoted to His religion

039:011 Shakir        Say: I am commanded that I should serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.

039:011 Sherali       Say, `Verily, I am commanded to worship ALLAH with sincere devotion,

039:011 Yusufali     Say: "Verily, I am commanded to serve Allah with sincere devotion;

039:012

039:012 Khan          "And I am commanded (this) in order that I may be the first of those who submit themselves to Allah (in Islam) as Muslims."

039:012 Maulana     And I am commanded to be the first of those who submit.

039:012 Pickthal      And I am commanded to be the first of those who are muslims (surrender unto Him).

039:012 Rashad       "And I was commanded to be the utmost submitter."

039:012 Sarwar       and I am commanded to be the first Muslim".

039:012 Shakir        And I am commanded that I shall be the first of those who submit.

039:012 Sherali       `And I am commanded to be the foremost of those who submit to HIM.'

039:012 Yusufali     "And I am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah in Islam.”

039:013

039:013 Khan          Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Verily, if I disobey my Lord, I am afraid of the torment of a great Day."

039:013 Maulana     Say: I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the chastisement of a grievous day.

039:013 Pickthal      Say: Lo! if I should disobey my Lord, I fear the doom of a tremendous Day.

039:013 Rashad       Say, "I fear, if I disobeyed my Lord, the retribution of a great day."

039:013 Sarwar       Say, "I am afraid that for disobeying my Lord I shall suffer the torment of the great day".

039:013 Shakir        Say: I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the chastisement of a grievous day.

039:013 Sherali       Say, `Indeed I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the punishment of a grievous day.'

039:013 Yusufali     Say: "I would, if I disobeyed my Lord, indeed have fear of the Penalty of a Mighty Day.”

039:014

039:014 Khan          Say (O Muhammad SAW) "Allah Alone I worship by doing religious deeds sincerely for His sake only and not to show-off, and not to set up rivals with Him in worship."

039:014 Maulana     Say: Allah I serve, being sincere to Him in my obedience.

039:014 Pickthal      Say: Allah I worship, making my religion pure for Him (only).

039:014 Rashad       Say, "GOD is the only One I worship, devoting my religion absolutely to Him alone.

039:014 Sarwar       Say, "I worship God alone and devote myself to His religion.

039:014 Shakir        Say: Allah (it is Whom) I serve, being sincere to Him in my obedience:

039:014 Sherali       Say, `It is ALLAH I worship in sincerest obedience to HIM.

039:014 Yusufali     Say: "It is Allah I serve, with my sincere (and exclusive) devotion:

039:015

039:015 Khan          So worship what you like besides Him. Say (O Muhammad SAW): "The losers are those who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, that will be a manifest loss!"

039:015 Maulana     Serve then what you will beside Him. Say: The losers surely are those who lose themselves and their people on the day of Resurrection. Now surely that is the manifest loss!

039:015 Pickthal      Then worship what ye will beside Him. Say: The losers will be those who lose themselves and their housefolk on the Day of Resurrection. Ah, that will be the manifest loss!

039:015 Rashad       "Therefore, worship whatever you wish beside Him." Say, "The real losers are those who lose their souls, and their families, on the Day of Resurrection." Most certainly, this is the real loss.

039:015 Sarwar       Worship besides Him whatever you want. The greatest losers are those whose souls and family members will be lost on the Day of Judgment for this is certainly a great loss".

039:015 Shakir        Serve then what you like besides Him. Say: The losers surely are those who shall have lost themselves and their families on the day of resurrection; now surely that is the clear loss.

039:015 Sherali       `As to you, worship what you like beside HIM.' Say, `Surely, the real losers are they who ruin their souls and their families on the day of Resurrection.' Beware !  that is, surely, the manifest loss.

039:015 Yusufali     "Serve ye what ye will besides him." Say: "Truly, those in loss are those who lose their own souls and their People on the Day of Judgment: Ah! that is indeed the (real and) evident Loss!

039:016

039:016 Khan          They shall have coverings of Fire, above them and covering (of Fire) beneath them; with this Allah does frighten His slaves: "O My slaves, therefore fear Me!"

039:016 Maulana     They shall have coverings of fire above them and coverings beneath them. With that Allah makes His servants to fear; so keep your duty to Me, O My servants.

039:016 Pickthal      They have an awning of fire above them and beneath them a dais (of fire). With this doth Allah appal His bondmen. O My bondmen, therefor fear Me!

039:016 Rashad       They will have masses of fire on top of them, and under them. GOD thus alerts His servants: O My servants, you shall reverence Me.

039:016 Shakir        They shall have coverings of fire above them and coverings beneath them; with that Allah makes His servants to fear, so be careful of (your duty to) Me, O My servants!

039:016 Sherali       They will have over them coverings of fire, and beneath them similar coverings. It is this against which ALLAH warns HIS servants. `O MY servants, take ME, then, for your Protector.'

039:016 Yusufali     They shall have Layers of Fire above them, and Layers (of Fire) below them: with this doth Allah warn off his servants: "O My Servants! then fear ye Me!”

039:017

039:017 Khan          Those who avoid At-Taghut (false deities) by not worshipping them and turn to Allah in repentance, for them are glad tidings; so announce the good news to My slaves,

039:017 Maulana     And those who eschew the worship of the idols and turn to Allah, for them is good news. So give good news to My servants,

039:017 Rashad       As for those who discard the worship of all idols, and devote themselves totally to GOD alone, they have deserved happiness. Give good news to My servants.

039:017 Sarwar       Those who have avoided worshipping idols and have turned in repentance to God will receive the glad news.

039:017 Shakir        And (as for) those who keep off from the worship of the idols and turn to Allah, they shall have good news, therefore give good news to My servants,

039:018 Maulana     Who listen to the Word, then follow the best of it. Such are they whom Allah has guided, and such are the men of understanding.

039:018 Pickthal      Who hear advice and follow the best thereof. Such are those whom Allah guideth, and such are men of understanding.

039:019

039:019 Khan          Is, then one against whom the Word of punishment justified (equal to the one who avoids evil). Will you (O Muhammad SAW) rescue him who is in the Fire?

039:019 Maulana     He against whom the sentence of chastisement is due -- canst thou save him who is in the Fire?

039:019 Pickthal      Is he on whom the word of doom is fulfilled (to be helped), and canst thou (O Muhammad) rescue him who is in the Fire?

039:019 Rashad       With regard to those who have deserved the retribution, can you save those who are already in Hell?

039:019 Sarwar       How can you rescue the one who is destined to suffer the torment?.

039:019 Shakir        What! as for him then against whom the sentence of chastisement is due: What! can you save him who is in the fire?

039:019 Sherali       Can he, then, against whom the sentence of punishment has become due, be saved?  Canst thou rescue him who is in the Fire?

039:019 Yusufali     Is, then, one against whom the decree of Punishment is justly due (equal to one who eschews Evil)? Wouldst thou, then, deliver one (who is) in the Fire?

039:020

039:020 Khan          But those who fear Allah and keep their duty to their Lord (Allah), for them are built lofty rooms; one above another under which rivers flow (i.e. Paradise). (This is) the Promise of Allah: and Allah does not fail in (His) Promise.

039:020 Maulana     But those who keep their duty to their Lord, for them are high places, above them higher places, built (for them), wherein rivers flow. (It is) the promise of Allah. Allah fails not in (His) promise.

039:020 Pickthal      But those who keep their duty to their Lord, for them are lofty halls with lofty halls above them, built (for them), beneath which rivers flow. (It is) a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise.

039:020 Rashad       As for those who reverence their Lord, they will have mansions upon mansions constructed for them, with flowing streams. This is GOD's promise, and GOD never breaks His promise.

039:020 Sarwar       Those who have fear of their Lord will have lofty mansions built upon mansions beneath which streams flow. It is the promise of God. God does not disregard His promise.

039:020 Shakir        But (as for) those who are careful of (their duty to) their Lord, they shall have high places, above them higher places, built (for them), beneath which flow rivers; (this is) the promise of Allah: Allah will not fail in (His) promise.

039:020 Yusufali     But it is for those who fear their Lord. That lofty mansions, one above another, have been built: beneath them flow rivers (of delight): (such is) the Promise of Allah: never doth Allah fail in (His) promise.

039:021

039:021 Khan          See you not, that Allah sends down water (rain) from the sky, and causes it to penetrate the earth, (and then makes it to spring up) as water-springs and afterward thereby produces crops of different colours, and afterward they wither and you see them turn yellow, then He makes them dry and broken pieces. Verily, in this, is a Reminder for men of understanding.

039:021 Maulana     Seest thou not that Allah sends down water from the clouds, then makes it go down into the earth in springs, then brings forth therewith herbage of various hues; then it withers so that thou seest it turn yellow, then He makes it chaff? Surely there is a reminder in this for men of understanding.

039:021 Pickthal      Hast thou not seen how Allah hath sent down water from the sky and hath caused it to penetrate the earth as watersprings, and afterward thereby produceth crops of divers hues; and afterward they wither and thou seest them turn yellow; then He maketh them chaff. Lo! herein verily is a reminder for men of understanding.

039:021 Rashad       Do you not see that GOD sends down from the sky water, then places it into underground wells, then produces with it plants of various colors, then they grow until they turn yellow, then He turns them into hay? This should be a reminder for those who possess intelligence.

039:021 Sarwar       Have you not seen that God has sent down water from the sky and made it flow as springs out of the earth? He makes crops of different colors grow with this water and flourish, which then turn yellow and wither away. In this there is a reminder for the people of understanding.

039:021 Shakir        Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the cloud, then makes it go along in the earth in springs, then brings forth therewith herbage of various colors, then it withers so that you see it becoming yellow, then He makes it a thing crushed and broken into pieces? Most surely there is a reminder in this for the men of understanding.

039:021 Sherali       Hast thou not seen that ALLAH sends down water from the sky, and causes it to flow in springs in the earth and then brings forth thereby herbage of diverse hues?  Then it dries up and thou seest it turn to yellow; then HE reduces it to broken straw. In that, verily, is a reminder for men of understanding.

039:021 Yusufali     Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and leads it through springs in the earth? Then He causes to grow, therewith, produce of various colours: then it withers; thou wilt see it grow yellow; then He makes it dry up and crumble away. Truly, in this, is a Message of remembrance to men of understanding.

039:022                   Section 3: A Perfect Guidance

039:022 Khan          Is he whose breast Allah has opened to Islam, so that he is in light from His Lord (as he who is non-Muslim)? So, woe to those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of Allah! They are in plain error!

039:022 Maulana     Is he whose breast Allah has opened to Islam so that he follows a light from his Lord --? So woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah! Such are in clear error.

039:022 Pickthal      Is he whose bosom Allah hath expanded for Al-Islam, so that he followeth a light from his Lord, (as he who disbelieveth)? Then woe unto those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of Allah. Such are in plain error.

039:022 Rashad       If GOD renders one's heart content with Submission, he will be following a light from his Lord. Therefore, woe to those whose hearts are hardened against GOD's message; they have gone far astray.

039:022 Sarwar       One whose chest (heart and mind) is left open for Islam (submission to His will) shall receive light from God. Woe to those whose hearts have become like stone against the remembrance of God. They are clearly in error.

039:022 Shakir        What! is he whose heart Allah has opened for Islam so that he is in a light from his Lord (like the hard-hearted)? Nay, woe to those whose hearts are hard against the remembrance of Allah; those are in clear error.

039:022 Sherali       Is he then whose bosom ALLAH has opened for the acceptance of Islam, so that he possesses a light from his Lord, like him who is grouping in the darkness of disbelief?  Woe, then, to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of ALLAH !  They are in manifest error.

039:022 Yusufali     Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so that he has received Enlightenment from Allah, (no better than one hard-hearted)? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the praises of Allah! they are manifestly wandering (in error)!

039:023

039:023 Khan          Allah has sent down the best statement, a Book (this Qur'an), its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, oft-repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it (when they recite it or hear it). Then their skin and their heart soften to the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah. He Guides therewith whom He pleases and whomever Allah sends astray, for him there is no guide.

039:023 Maulana     Allah has revealed the best announcement, a Book consistent, repeating (its injunctions), whereat do shudder the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts soften to Allah’s remembrance. This is Allah’s guidance -- He guides with it whom He pleases. And he whom Allah leaves in error, there is no guide for him.

039:023 Pickthal      Allah hath (now) revealed the fairest of statements, a Scripture consistent, (wherein promises of reward are) paired (with threats of punishment), whereat doth creep the flesh of those who fear their Lord, so that their flesh and their hearts soften to Allah's reminder. Such is Allah's guidance, wherewith He guideth whom He will. And him whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide.

039:023 Rashad       GOD has revealed herein the best Hadith; a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hearts soften up for GOD's message. Such is GOD's guidance; He bestows it upon whoever wills (to be guided). As for those sent astray by GOD, nothing can guide them.

039:023 Sarwar       God has revealed the best reading material in the form of a Book with similar passages which refer to each other and make the skins of those who fear their Lord shiver. Then their skins and hearts incline to the remembrance of God. This is the guidance of God. He guides whomever He wants. No one can guide those whom God has caused to go astray.

039:023 Shakir        Allah has revealed the best announcement, a book conformable in its various parts, repeating, whereat do shudder the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts become pliant to the remembrance of Allah; this is Allah's guidance, He guides with it whom He pleases; and (as for) him whom Allah makes err, there is no guide for him.

039:023 Sherali       ALLAH has sent down the Best Discourse - a Book, whose verses are mutually supporting and repeated in diverse forms. The skins of those, who fear their Lord, do creep at its recital, then their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of ALLAH. Such is the guidance of ALLAH.  HE guides therewith whom HE pleases. And he whom ALLAH adjudges astray - he shall have no guide.

039:023 Yusufali     Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of Allah's praises. Such is the guidance of Allah: He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as Allah leaves to stray, can have none to guide.

039:024

039:024 Khan          Is he then, who will confront with his face the awful torment on the Day of Resurrection (as he who enters peacefully in Paradise)? And it will be said to the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.): "Taste what you used to earn!"

039:024 Maulana     Is then he who has to guard himself with his own person against the evil chastisement on the Resurrection day --? And it will be said to the iniquitous: Taste what you earned.

039:024 Pickthal      Is he then, who will strike his face against the awful doom upon the Day of Resurrection (as he who doeth right)? And it will be said unto the wrong-doers: Taste what ye used to earn.

039:024 Rashad       What is better than saving one's face from the terrible retribution on the Day of Resurrection? The transgressors will be told, "Taste the consequences of what you earned."

039:024 Sarwar       Is there anyone who is afraid of the torment of the Day of Judgment when the unjust will be told, "Suffer the result of your deeds?".

039:024 Shakir        Is he then who has to guard himself with his own person against the evil chastisement on the resurrection day? And it will be said to the unjust: Taste what you earned.

039:024 Sherali       Is he, then, who has only his own face to shield from the evil punishment on the Day of Resurrection, like him who is secure?  And it will be said to the wrongdoers, `Taste ye the recompense of what you used to earn.'

039:024 Yusufali     Is, then, one who has to fear the brunt of the Penalty on the Day of Judgment (and receive it) on his face, (like one guarded therefrom)? It will be said to the wrong-doers: "Taste ye (the fruits of) what ye earned!”

039:025

039:025 Khan          Those before them belied, and so the torment came on them from directions they perceived not.

039:025 Maulana     Those before them denied, so the chastisement came to them from whence they perceived not.

039:025 Pickthal      Those before them denied, and so the doom came on them whence they knew not.

039:025 Rashad       Others before them have disbelieved and, consequently, the retribution afflicted them whence they never expected.

039:025 Sarwar       Those who lived before them had also rejected Our revelations. Thus, the torment struck them and they did not even realize where it came from.

039:025 Shakir        Those before them rejected (prophets), therefore there came to them the chastisement from whence they perceived not.

039:025 Sherali       Those, who were before them, rejected Our Messengers, so the punishment came upon them whence they knew not.

039:025 Yusufali     Those before them (also) rejected (revelation), and so the Punishment came to them from directions they did not perceive.

039:026

039:026 Khan          So Allah made them to taste the disgrace in the present life, but greater is the torment of the Hereafter if they only knew!

039:026 Maulana     So Allah made them taste disgrace in this worlds’ life, and certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is greater. Did they but know!

039:026 Pickthal      Thus Allah made them taste humiliation in the life of the world, and verily the doom of the Hereafter will be greater if they did but know.

039:026 Rashad       GOD has condemned them to humiliation in this life, and the retribution in the Hereafter will be far worse, if they only knew.

039:026 Sarwar       God made them suffer humiliation in this life. Would that they knew that the torment for them in the next life will be even greater.

039:026 Shakir        So Allah made them taste the disgrace in this world's life, and certainly the punishment of the hereafter is greater; did they but know!

039:026 Sherali       So ALLAH made them taste humiliation in the present life and the punishment of the Hereafter will certainly be greater, if they but knew.

039:026 Yusufali     So Allah gave them a taste of humiliation in the present life, but greater is the punishment of the Hereafter, if they only knew!

039:027

039:027 Khan          And indeed We have put forth for men, in this Qur'an every kind of similitude in order that they may remember.

039:027 Maulana     And certainly We have set forth for men in this Qur’an similitudes of every sort that they may mind.

039:027 Pickthal      And verily We have coined for mankind in this Qur'an all kinds of similitudes, that haply they may reflect;

039:027 Rashad       We have cited for the people every kind of example in this Quran, that they may take heed.

039:027 Sarwar       We have given all kinds of examples for the human being in this Quran so that perhaps he may take heed.

039:027 Shakir        And certainly We have set forth to men in this Quran similitudes of every sort that they may mind.

039:027 Sherali       And, indeed, WE have set forth for mankind all manner of parables in this Qur'an that they may take heed.

039:027 Yusufali     We have put forth for men, in this Qur'an every kind of Parable, in order that they may receive admonition.

039:028

039:028 Khan          An Arabic Qur'an, without any crookedness (therein) in order that they may avoid all evil which Allah has ordered them to avoid, fear Him and keep their duty to Him.

039:028 Maulana     An Arabic Qur’an without any crookedness, that they may guard against evil.

039:028 Pickthal      A Lecture in Arabic, containing no crookedness, that haply they may ward off (evil).

039:028 Rashad       An Arabic Quran, without any ambiguity, that they may be righteous.

039:028 Sarwar       This Quran is a flawless reading text in the Arabic language. Perhaps they will have fear of God.

039:028 Shakir        An Arabic Quran without any crookedness, that they may guard (against evil).

039:028 Sherali       WE have revealed the Qur'an in Arabic wherein there is no deviation from rectitude, that they may become righteous.

039:028 Yusufali     (It is) a Qur'an in Arabic, without any crookedness (therein): in order that they may guard against Evil.

039:029

039:029 Khan          Allah puts forth a similitude: a (slave) man belonging to many partners (like those who worship others along with Allah) disputing with one another, and a (slave) man belonging entirely to one master, (like those who worship Allah Alone). Are those two equal in comparison? All the praises and thanks be to Allah! But most of them know not.

039:029 Maulana     Allah sets forth a parable: A man belonging to partners differing with one another, and a man (devoted) wholly to one man. Are the two alike in condition? Praise be to Allah! Nay, most of them know not.

039:029 Pickthal      Allah coineth a similitude: A man in relation to whom are several part-owners, quarrelling, and a man belonging wholly to one man. Are the two equal in similitude? Praise be to Allah! But most of them know not.

039:029 Rashad       GOD cites the example of a man who deals with disputing partners (Hadith), compared to a man who deals with only one consistent source (Quran). Are they the same? Praise be to GOD; most of them do not know.

039:029 Sarwar       God tells a parable in which there is a company of quarrelsome people and only one of them is well disciplined. Can they be considered as equal? It is only God who deserves all praise. In fact, most of them do not know.

039:029 Shakir        Allah sets forth an example: There is a slave in whom are (several) partners differing with one another, and there is another slave wholly owned by one man. Are the two alike in condition? (All) praise is due to Allah. Nay! most of them do not know.

039:029 Sherali       ALLAH sets forth a parable - a man belonging to several partners, who disagree with one another, and a man belonging wholly to one man. Are the two equal in condition?  All praise belongs to ALLAH. But most of them know not.

039:029 Yusufali     Allah puts forth a Parable a man belonging to many partners at variance with each other, and a man belonging entirely to one master: are those two equal in comparison? Praise be to Allah! but most of them have no knowledge.

039:030 Sarwar       (Muhammad), you will die and all of them will also die.

039:033

039:033 Khan          And he (Muhammad SAW) who has brought the truth (this Qur'an and Islamic Monotheism) and (those who) believed therein (i.e. the true believers of Islamic Monotheism), those are Al- Muttaqun (the pious and righteous persons - see V.2:2).

039:035 Yusufali     So that Allah will turn off from them (even) the worst in their deeds and give them their reward according to the best of what they have done.

039:036

039:036 Khan          Is not Allah Sufficient for His slave? Yet they try to frighten you with those (whom they worship) besides Him! And whom Allah sends astray, for him there will be no guide.

039:036 Maulana     Is not Allah sufficient for His servant? And they seek to frighten thee with those besides Him. And whomsoever Allah leaves in error, there is no guide for him.

039:036 Pickthal      Will not Allah defend His slave? Yet they would frighten thee with those beside Him. He whom Allah sendeth astray, for him there is no guide.

039:036 Rashad       Is GOD not sufficient for His servant? They frighten you with the idols they set up beside Him. Whomever GOD sends astray, nothing can guide him.

039:036 Sarwar       Is God not sufficient (support) for His servants? They frighten you with what they worship besides God. Who can guide one whom God has caused to go astray?.

039:036 Shakir        Is not Allah sufficient for His servant? And they seek to frighten you with those besides Him; and whomsoever Allah makes err, there is no guide for him.

039:036 Sherali       Is not ALLAH sufficient for HIS servant?  And yet they would frighten thee with those beside HIM. And he whom ALLAH leaves in error - for him there is no guide.

039:036 Yusufali     Is not Allah enough for his Servant? But they try to frighten thee with other (gods) besides Him! for such as Allah leaves to stray, there can be no guide.

039:037

039:037 Khan          And whomsoever Allah guides, for him there will be no misleader. Is not Allah All-Mighty, Possessor of Retribution?

039:037 Maulana     And whom Allah guides, there is none that can lead him astray. Is not Allah Mighty, the Lord of retribution?

039:037 Pickthal      And he whom Allah guideth, for him there can be no misleader. Is not Allah Mighty, Able to Requite (the wrong)?

039:037 Rashad       And whomever GOD guides, nothing can send him astray. Is GOD not Almighty, Avenger?

039:037 Sarwar       Who can mislead one whom God has guided? Is God not Majestic and Revengeful?.

039:037 Shakir        And whom Allah guides, there is none that can lead him astray; is not Allah Mighty, the Lord of retribution?

039:037 Sherali       And him whom ALLAH guides - there is none to lead him astray. Is not ALLAH the Mighty, the Lord of retribution?

039:037 Yusufali     And such as Allah doth guide there can be none to lead astray. Is not Allah Exalted in Power, (Able to enforce His Will), Lord of Retribution?

039:038

039:038 Khan          And verily, if you ask them: "Who created the heavens and the earth?" Surely, they will say: "Allah (has created them)." Say: "Tell me then, the things that you invoke besides Allah, if Allah intended some harm for me, could they remove His harm, or if He (Allah) intended some mercy for me, could they withhold His Mercy?" Say: "Sufficient for me is Allah; in Him those who trust (i.e. believers) must put their trust."

039:038 Maulana     And if thou ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? They will say: Allah. Say: See you then that those you call upon besides Allah, would they, if Allah desire to afflict me with harm, remove His harm? Or if He desire to show me mercy, could they withhold His mercy? Say: Allah is sufficient for me. On Him do the reliant rely.

039:038 Pickthal      And verily, if thou shouldst ask them: Who created the heavens and the earth? they will say: Allah. Say: Bethink you then of those ye worship beside Allah, if Allah willed some hurt for me, could they remove from me His hurt; or if He willed some mercy for me, could they restrain His mercy? Say: Allah is my all. In Him do (all) the trusting put their trust.

039:038 Rashad       If you ask them, "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they will say, "GOD." Say, "Why then do you set up idols beside GOD? If GOD willed any adversity for me, can they relieve such an adversity? And if He willed a blessing for me, can they prevent such a blessing?" Say, "GOD is sufficient for me." In Him the trusters shall trust.

039:038 Sarwar       If you ask them, "Who has created the heavens and the earth?" They will certainly say, "God has created them." Ask them, "Do you think that you can rescue me from the punishment of God with which He may afflict me? Can you prevent His mercy if He wants to grant it to me?" Say, "God is Sufficient (support) for me. In Him alone one must trust".

039:038 Shakir        And should you ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? They would most certainly say: Allah. Say: Have you then considered that what you call upon besides Allah, would they, if Allah desire to afflict me with harm, be the removers of His harm, or (would they), if Allah desire to show me mercy, be the withholders of His mercy? Say: Allah is sufficient for me; on Him do the reliant rely.

039:038 Sherali       And if thou ask them,  `Who created the heavens and the earth?'  They will, surely, say, `ALLAH.'  Say, `What think ye, if ALLAH intends to do me harm, will those whom you call upon beside ALLAH be able to remove the harm HE may intend?  Or, if HE wills to show me mercy, could they withhold HIS mercy?'  Say, `ALLAH is sufficient for me. In HIM trust those who would trust.'

039:038 Yusufali     If indeed thou ask them who it is that created the heavens and the earth, they would be sure to say, "Allah". Say: "See ye then? the things that ye invoke besides Allah,- can they, if Allah wills some Penalty for me, remove His Penalty?- Or if He wills some Grace for me, can they keep back his Grace?" Say: "Sufficient is Allah for me! In Him trust those who put their trust.”

039:039

039:039 Khan          Say: (O Muhammad SAW) "O My people! Work according to your way, I am working (according to my way). Then you will come to know,

039:039 Maulana     Say: O my people, work in your place. Surely I am a worker, so you will come to know,

039:039 Pickthal      Say: O my people! Act in your manner. Lo! I (too) am acting. Thus ye will come to know

039:039 Rashad       Say, "O my people, do your best and I will do my best; you will surely find out.

039:039 Sarwar       Say, "My people, act as you wish. I shall do as I like and you will soon know

039:039 Shakir        Say: O my people! work in your place, surely I am a worker, so you will come to know.

039:039 Sherali       Say, `O my people, act as best as you can; I, too, am acting; soon shall you know,

039:039 Yusufali     Say: "O my People! Do whatever ye can: I will do (my part): but soon will ye know-

039:040

039:040 Khan          "To whom comes a disgracing torment, and on whom descends an everlasting torment."

039:040 Maulana     Who it is to whom there comes a chastisement abasing him, and on whom falls a lasting chastisement.

039:040 Pickthal      Who it is unto whom cometh a doom that will abase him, and on whom there falleth everlasting doom.

039:040 Rashad       "(You will find out) who has incurred shameful punishment, and has deserved an eternal retribution."

039:040 Sarwar       who will face the humiliating torment and suffer everlasting retribution".

039:040 Shakir        Who it is to whom there shall come a punishment which will disgrace him and to whom will be due a lasting punishment.

039:040 Sherali       Who it is unto whom comes a punishment that will disgrace him, and on whom there descends an abiding punishment?'

039:040 Yusufali     "Who it is to whom comes a Penalty of ignominy, and on whom descends a Penalty that abides.”

039:041

039:041 Khan          Verily, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur'an) for mankind in truth. So whosoever accepts the guidance, it is only for his ownself, and whosoever goes astray, he goes astray only for his (own) loss. And you (O Muhammad SAW) are not a Wakil (trustee or disposer of affairs, or keeper) over them.

039:041 Maulana     Surely We have revealed to thee the Book with truth for (the good of) men. So whoever follows the right way, it is for his own soul, and whoever errs, he errs only to its detriment. And thou art not a custodian over them.

039:041 Pickthal      Lo! We have revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture for mankind with truth. Then whosoever goeth right it is for his soul, and whosoever strayeth, strayeth only to its hurt. And thou art not a warder over them.

039:041 Rashad       We have revealed the scripture through you for the people, truthfully. Then, whoever is guided is guided for his own good, and whoever goes astray goes astray to his own detriment. You are not their advocate.

039:041 Sarwar       (Muhammad), We have revealed the Book to you for mankind in all truth. Whoever seeks guidance does so for his own good. Whosoever goes astray goes against his own soul. You are not their representative.

039:041 Shakir        Surely We have revealed to you the Book with the truth for the sake of men; so whoever follows the right way, it is for his own soul and whoever errs, he errs only to its detriment; and you are not a custodian over them.

039:041 Sherali       Verily, WE have revealed to thee the Book comprising all truth for the good of mankind. So whoever follows guidance, follows it for the benefit of his own soul; and whoever goes astray, goes astray only to its detriment. And thou art not a guardian over them.

039:041 Yusufali     Verily We have revealed the Book to thee in Truth, for (instructing) mankind. He, then, that receives guidance benefits his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. Nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.

039:042

039:042                   Section 5: Punishment cannot be Averted

039:042 Khan          It is Allah Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.

039:042 Maulana     Allah takes (men’s) souls at the time of their death, and those that die not, during their sleep. Then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term. Surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.

039:042 Pickthal      Allah receiveth (men's) souls at the time of their death, and that (soul) which dieth not (yet) in its sleep. He keepeth that (soul) for which He hath ordained death and dismisseth the rest till an appointed term. Lo! herein verily are portents for people who take thought.

039:042 Rashad       GOD puts the souls to death when the end of their life comes, and also at the time of sleep. Thus, He takes some back during their sleep, while others are allowed to continue living until the end of their predetermined interim. This should provide lessons for people who reflect.

039:042 Sarwar       God will receive their souls when they die. Their souls do not die when they are sleeping. During people's sleep He withholds those souls which He has decreed to die and releases the others for an appointed time. In this there is evidence (of the Truth) for the thoughtful people.

039:042 Shakir        Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep; then He withholds those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends the others back till an appointed term; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.

039:042 Sherali       ALLAH takes away the souls of men at the time of their death; and of those also that are not yet dead, during their sleep. Then HE withholds those against which HE has decreed death, and sends back the others till an appointed term. In that, surely, are Signs for a people who reflect.

039:042 Yusufali     It is Allah that takes the souls (of men) at death; and those that die not (He takes) during their sleep: those on whom He has passed the decree of death, He keeps back (from returning to life), but the rest He sends (to their bodies) for a term appointed verily in this are Signs for those who reflect.

039:043

039:043 Khan          Have they taken others as intercessors besides Allah? Say: "Even if they have power over nothing whatever and have no intelligence?"

039:043 Maulana     Or, take they intercessors besides Allah? Say: What! Even though they control naught, nor do they understand.

039:043 Pickthal      Or choose they intercessors other than Allah? Say: What! Even though they have power over nothing and have no intelligence?

039:043 Rashad       Have they invented intercessors to mediate between them and GOD? Say, "What if they do not possess any power, nor understanding?"

039:043 Sarwar       Have they chosen intercessors besides God? Say, "Would you choose them as your intercessors even though they do not possess anything and have no understanding?".

039:043 Shakir        Or have they taken intercessors besides Allah? Say: what! even though they did not ever have control over anything, nor do they understand.

039:043 Sherali       Have they taken intercessors beside ALLAH?  Say, `Even if they have no power over anything and no understanding?

039:043 Yusufali     What! Do they take for intercessors others besides Allah? Say: "Even if they have no power whatever and no intelligence?”

039:044

039:044 Khan          Say: "To Allah belongs all intercession. His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you shall be brought back."

039:044 Maulana     say: Allah’s is the intercession altogether. His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. Then to Him you will be returned.

039:044 Pickthal      Say: Unto Allah belongeth all intercession. His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. And afterward unto Him ye will be brought back.

039:044 Rashad       Say, "All intercession belongs to GOD." To Him belongs all sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you will be returned.

039:044 Sarwar       Say, "Intercession belongs to God. To Him belongs the heavens and the earth and to Him you will all return."

039:044 Shakir        Say: Allah's is the intercession altogether; His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you shall be brought back.

039:044 Sherali       Say, `All intercession rests with ALLAH. To HIM belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And to HIM, then, shall you be brought back.'

039:044 Yusufali     Say: "To Allah belongs exclusively (the right to grant) intercession: to Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth: In the End, it is to Him that ye shall be brought back.”

039:045

039:045 Khan          And when Allah Alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter are filled with disgust (from the Oneness of Allah and when those (whom they obey or worship) besides Him [like all false deities other than Allah, it may be a Messenger like 'Iesa (Jesus) - son of Maryam (Mary), 'Uzair (Ezra), an angel, a pious man, a jinn, or any other creature even idols, graves of religious people, saints, priests, monks, etc.] are mentioned, behold, they rejoice!

039:045 Maulana     And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter shrink, and when those besides Him are mentioned, lo! they are joyful.

039:045 Pickthal      And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter are repelled, and when those (whom they worship) beside Him are mentioned, behold! they are glad.

039:045 Rashad       When GOD ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned beside Him, they become satisfied.

039:045 Sarwar       When one God is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Day of Judgment begin to shrink, but when the idols are mentioned, they rejoice.

039:045 Shakir        And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink, and when those besides Him are mentioned, lo! they are joyful.

039:045 Sherali       And when ALLAH alone is mentioned, the hearts of those, who believe not in the Hereafter, shrink with aversion; but when those beside HIM are mentioned, behold !  they begin to rejoice.

039:045 Yusufali     When Allah, the One and Only, is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter are filled with disgust and horror; but when (gods) other than He are mentioned, behold, they are filled with joy!

039:046

039:046 Khan          Say (O Muhammad SAW): "O Allah! Creator of the heavens and the earth! All-Knower of the Ghaib (unseen) and the seen. You will judge between your slaves about that wherein they used to differ."

039:046 Maulana     Say: O Allah, Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, Thou judgest between Thy servants as to that wherein they differ.

039:046 Pickthal      Say: O Allah! Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of the Invisible and the Visible! Thou wilt judge between Thy slaves concerning that wherein they used to differ.

039:046 Rashad       Proclaim: "Our god, Initiator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of all secrets and declarations, You are the only One who judges among Your servants regarding their disputes."

039:046 Sarwar       Say, "Lord, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, knower of the seen and unseen, it is You who will issue Your decree about the differences of Your servants."

039:046 Shakir        Say: O Allah! Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen! Thou (only) judgest between Thy servants as to that wherein they differ.

039:046 Sherali       Say, `O ALLAH !  Originator of the heavens and the earth; Knower of the unseen and the seen; Thou alone wilt judge between Thy servants concerning that in which they differed.'

039:046 Yusufali     Say: "O Allah! Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of all that is hidden and open! it is Thou that wilt judge between Thy Servants in those matters about which they have differed.”

039:047

039:047 Khan          And those who did wrong (the polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), if they had all that is in earth and therewith as much again, they verily, would offer it to ransom themselves therewith on the Day of Resurrection from the evil torment, and there will become apparent to them from Allah, what they had not been reckoning.

039:047 Maulana     And had those who do wrong all that is in the earth and the like of it with it, they would certainly offer it as ransom from the evil of the chastisement on the day of Resurrection. And what they never thought of shall become plain to them from Allah.

039:047 Pickthal      And though those who do wrong possess all that is in the earth, and therewith as much again, they verily will seek to ransom themselves therewith on the Day of Resurrection from the awful doom; and there will appear unto them, from their Lord, that wherewith they never reckoned.

039:047 Rashad       If those who transgressed owned everything on earth, even twice as much, they would readily give it up to avoid the terrible retribution on the Day of Resurrection. They will be shown by GOD what they never expected.

039:047 Sarwar       Had the unjust possessed double the amount of the wealth of the whole earth, they would certainly have liked to offer it on the Day of Resurrection as redemption from the torment of Our scourge when God would make public what they had never expected.

039:047 Shakir        And had those who are unjust all that is in the earth and the like of it with it, they would certainly offer it as ransom (to be saved) from the evil of the punishment on the day of resurrection; and what they never thought of shall become plain to them from Allah.

039:047 Sherali       And even if the wrongdoers possessed all that is in the earth, and the like thereof in addition to it, they would, surely, seek to ransom themselves with it to escape from the evil punishment on the Day of Resurrection, but there shall appear unto them from ALLAH that which they had never thought of.

039:047 Yusufali     Even if the wrong-doers had all that there is on earth, and as much more, (in vain) would they offer it for ransom from the pain of the Penalty on the Day of Judgment: but something will confront them from Allah, which they could never have counted upon!

039:048

039:048 Khan          And the evils of that which they earned will become apparent to them, and they will be encircled by that which they used to mock at!

039:048 Maulana     And the evil of what they wrought will become plain to them, and that which they mocked at will beset them.

039:048 Pickthal      And the evils that they earned will appear unto them, and that whereat they used to scoff will surround them.

039:048 Rashad       The sinful works they had earned will be shown to them, and the very things they used to mock will come back to haunt them.

039:048 Sarwar       Their bad deeds will become public and they will be surrounded by the torment which they had mocked during their worldly life.

039:048 Shakir        And the evil (consequences) of what they wrought shall become plain to them, and the very thing they mocked at shall beset them.

039:048 Sherali       And the evil consequences of what they had earned will become apparent to them and that which they used to mock at will encompass them.

039:048 Yusufali     For the evils of their Deeds will confront them, and they will be (completely) encircled by that which they used to mock at!

039:049

039:049 Khan          When harm touches man, he calls to Us (for help), then when We have (rescued him from that harm and) changed it into a favour from Us, he says: "Only because of knowledge (that I possess) I obtained it." Nay, it is only a trial, but most of them know not!

039:049 Maulana     So when harm afflicts a man he calls upon Us; then, when We give him a boon from Us, he says: I have been given it only by means of knowledge. Nay, it is a trial, but most of them know not.

039:049 Pickthal      Now when hurt toucheth a man he crieth unto Us, and afterward when We have granted him a boon from Us, he saith: Only by force of knowledge I obtained it. Nay, but it is a test. But most of them know not.

039:049 Rashad       If the human is touched by adversity, he implores us, but as soon as we bestow a blessing upon him, he says, "I attained this because of my cleverness!" Indeed, this is only a test, but most of them do not know.

039:049 Sarwar       When the human being is afflicted with hardship, he cries out to us for help. When We grant him a favor, he says, "I knew that I deserved it." In fact, it is only a test for him, but most people do not know this.

039:049 Shakir        So when harm afflicts a man he calls upon Us; then, when We give him a favor from Us, he says: I have been given it only by means of knowledge. Nay, it is a trial, but most of them do not know.

039:049 Sherali       And when harm touches man, he cries unto US, but when WE bestow on him a favour from US, he says, `This has been given to me on account of my own knowledge.' Nay, it is only a trial; but most of them know not.

039:049 Yusufali     Now, when trouble touches man, he cries to Us: But when We bestow a favour upon him as from Ourselves, he says, "This has been given to me because of a certain knowledge (I have)!" Nay, but this is but a trial, but most of them understand not!

039:050

039:050 Khan          Verily, those before them said it, yet (all) that they had earned availed them not.

039:050 Maulana     Those before them did say it indeed, but what they earned availed them not.

039:050 Pickthal      Those before them said it, yet (all) that they had earned availed them not;

039:050 Rashad       Those before them have uttered the same thing, and their earnings did not help them in the least.

039:050 Sarwar       People who lived before them had also said, "Our wealth has been earned by our own merits." What they had earned was of no benefit to them

039:050 Shakir        Those before them did say it indeed, but what they earned availed them not.

039:050 Sherali       Those who were before said the same thing, yet all that they earned availed them not.

039:050 Yusufali     Thus did the (generations) before them say! But all that they did was of no profit to them.

039:051

039:051 Khan          So, the evil results of that which they earned overtook them. And those who did wrong of these [people to whom you (Muhammad SAW) have been sent], will also be overtaken by the evil results (torment) for that which they earned, and they will never be able to escape.

039:051 Maulana     So there befell them the evil which they had earned. And those who are unjust from among these, there shall befall them the evil which they earn, and they shall not escape.

039:051 Pickthal      But the evils that they earned smote them; and such of these as do wrong, the evils that they earn will smite them; they cannot escape.

039:051 Rashad       They suffered the consequences of their evil works. Similarly, the transgressors among the present generation will suffer the consequences of their evil works; they cannot escape.

039:051 Sarwar       They were afflicted by the terrible result of whatever they gained. Besides this affliction, the unjust among them will also suffer the consequence of their deeds. They will not be able to challenge God.

039:051 Shakir        So there befell them the evil (consequences) of what they earned; and (as for) those who are unjust from among these, there shall befall them the evil (consequences) of what they earn, and they shall not escape.

039:051 Sherali       So the evil consequences of what they had earned overtook them; and those who do wrong form among these disbelievers - the evil consequences of what they earned shall overtake them also and they cannot escape.

039:051 Yusufali     Nay, the evil results of their Deeds overtook them. And the wrong-doers of this (generation)- the evil results of their Deeds will soon overtake them (too), and they will never be able to frustrate (Our Plan)!

039:052

039:052 Khan          Do they not know that Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills, and straitens it (for whom He wills). Verily, in this are signs for the folk who believe!

039:052 Maulana     Know they not that Allah gives ample subsistence to whom He pleases, and He straitens; surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

039:052 Pickthal      Know they not that Allah enlargeth providence for whom He will, and straiteneth it (for whom He will). Lo! herein verily are portents for people who believe.

039:052 Rashad       Do they not realize that GOD is the One who increases the provision for whomever He chooses, and withholds? These are lessons for people who believe.

039:052 Sarwar       Did they not know that God determines and increases the sustenance of whomever He wants. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the believing people.

039:052 Shakir        Do they not know that Allah makes ample the means of subsistence to whom He pleases, and He straitens; most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

039:052 Sherali       Know they not that ALLAH enlarges the provision for whomsoever HE pleases, and straitens it for whomsoever HE pleases?  Verily, in that are Signs for a people who believe.

039:052 Yusufali     Know they not that Allah enlarges the provision or restricts it, for any He pleases? Verily, in this are Signs for those who believe!

039:053

039:053                   Section 6: Divine Mercy

039:053 Khan          Say: "O 'Ibadi (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

039:053 Maulana     Say: O My servants who have been prodigal regarding their souls, despair not of the mercy of Allah; surely Allah forgives sins altogether. He is indeed the Forgiving, the Merciful.

039:053 Pickthal      Say: O My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah, Who forgiveth all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.

039:053 Rashad       Proclaim: "O My servants who exceeded the limits, never despair of GOD's mercy. For GOD forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful."

039:053 Sarwar       (Muhammad), tell my servants who have committed injustice to themselves, "Do not despair of the mercy of God. God certainly forgives all sins. He is All-forgiving and All-merciful."
