In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[29.1] Alif Lam Mim.
[29.2] Do men think that they will be left alone on
saying, We believe, and not be tried?
[29.3] And certainly We tried those before them, so Allah
will certainly know those who are true and He will certainly
know the liars.
[29.4] Or do they who work evil think that they will
escape Us? Evil is it that they judge!
[29.5] Whoever hopes to meet Allah, the term appointed by
Allah will then most surely come; and He is the Hearing, the
[29.6] And whoever strives hard, he strives only for his
own soul; most surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of)
[29.7] 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.
[29.8] 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
[29.9] And (as for) those who believe and do good, We
will most surely cause them to enter among the good.
[29.10] 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.
[29.11] And most certainly Allah will know those who
believe and most certainly He will know the hypocrites.
[29.12] 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.
[29.13] 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.
[29.14] 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.
[29.15] So We delivered him and the inmates of the ark,
and made it a sign to the nations.
[29.16] 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:
[29.17] 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.
[29.18] And if you reject (the truth), nations before you
did indeed reject (the truth); and nothing is incumbent on the
apostle but a plain delivering (of the message).
[29.19] What! do they not consider how Allah originates
the creation, then reproduces it? Surely that is easy to Allah.
[29.20] Say: Travel in the earth and see how He makes the
first creation, then Allah creates the latter creation; surely
Allah has power over all things.
[29.21] He punishes whom He pleases and has mercy on whom
He pleases, and to Him you shall be turned back.
[29.22] And you shall not escape in the earth nor in the
heaven, and you have neither a protector nor a helper besides
[29.23] And (as to) those who disbelieve in the
communications of Allah and His meeting, they have despaired of
My mercy, and these it is that shall have a painful punishment.
[29.24] 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
[29.25] 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.
[29.26] And Lut believed in Him, and he said: I am
fleeing to my Lord, surely He is the Mighty, the Wise.
[29.27] And We granted him Ishaq and Yaqoub, and caused
the t prophethood and the book to remain in his seed, and We
gave him his reward in this world, and in the hereafter he will
most surely be among the good.
[29.28] 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;
[29.29] 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.
[29.30] He said: My Lord! help me against the mischievous
[29.31] 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.
[29.32] 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
[29.33] 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.
[29.34] Surely We will cause to come down upon the people
of this town a punishment from heaven, because they
[29.35] And certainly We have left a clear sign of it for
a people who understand.
[29.36] 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.
[29.37] But they rejected him, so a severe earthquake
overtook them, and they became motionless bodies in their abode.
[29.38] 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,
[29.39] 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).
[29.40] 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.
[29.41] 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.
[29.42] Surely Allah knows whatever thing they call upon
besides Him; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
[29.43] And (as for) these examples, We set them forth
for men, and none understand them but the learned.
[29.44] Allah created the heavens and the earth with
truth; most surely there is a sign in this for the believers.
[29.45] 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.
[29.46] 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 God and your God is One, and to Him do
[29.47] 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.
[29.48] 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.
[29.49] Nay! these are clear communications in the
breasts of those who are granted knowledge; and none deny Our
communications except the unjust.
[29.50] 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.
[29.51] 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.
[29.52] 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.
[29.53] 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.
[29.54] They ask you to hasten on the chastisement, and
most surely hell encompasses the unbelievers;
[29.55] 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.
[29.56] O My servants who believe! surely My earth is
vast, therefore Me alone should you serve.
[29.57] Every soul must taste of death, then to Us you
shall be brought back.
[29.58] And (as for) those who believe and do good, We
will certainly give them abode in the high places in gardens
beneath which rivers flow, abiding therein; how good the reward
of the workers:
[29.59] Those who are patient, and on their Lord do they
[29.60] And how many a living creature that does not
carry its sustenance: Allah sustains it and yourselves; and He
is the Hearing, the Knowing.
[29.61] And if you ask them, Who created the heavens and
the earth and made the sun and the moon subservient, they will
certainly say, Allah. Whence are they then turned away?
[29.62] Allah makes abundant the means of subsistence for
whom He pleases of His servants, and straitens them for whom (He
pleases) surely Allah is Cognizant of all things.
[29.63] And if you ask them Who is it that sends down
water from the clouds, then gives life to the earth with it
after its death, they will certainly say, Allah. Say: All praise
is due to Allah. Nay, most of them do not understand.
[29.64] And this life of the world is nothing but a sport
and a play; and as for the next abode, that most surely is the
life-- did they but know!
[29.65] So when they ride in the ships they call upon
Allah, being sincerely obedient to Him, but when He brings them
safe to the land, lo! they associate others (with Him);
[29.66] Thus they become ungrateful for what We have
given them, so that they may enjoy; but they shall soon know.
[29.67] Do they not see that We have made a sacred
territory secure, while men are carried off by force from around
them? Will they still believe in the falsehood and disbelieve in
the favour of Allah?
[29.68] And who is more unjust than one who forges a lie
against Allah, or gives the lie to the truth when it has come to
him? Will not in hell be the abode of the unbelievers?
[29.69] And (as for) those who strive hard for Us, We
will most certainly guide them in Our ways; and Allah is most
surely with the doers of good.
