In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[45.1] Ha Mim.
[45.2] The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the
Mighty, the Wise.
[45.3] Most surely in the heavens and the earth there are
signs for the believers.
[45.4] And in your (own) creation and in what He spreads
abroad of animals there are signs for a people that are sure;
[45.5] And (in) the variation of the night and the day,
and (in) what Allah sends down of sustenance from the cloud,
then gives life thereby to the earth after its death, and (in)
the changing of the winds, there are signs for a people who
[45.6] These are the communications of Allah which We
recite to you with truth; then in what announcement would they
believe after Allah and His communications?
[45.7] Woe to every sinful liar,
[45.8] Who hears the communications of Allah recited to
him, then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so
announce to him a painful punishment.
[45.9] And when he comes to know of any of Our
communications, he takes it for a jest; these it is that shall
have abasing chastisement.
[45.10] Before them is hell, and there shall not avail
them aught of what they earned, nor those whom they took for
guardians besides Allah, and they shall have a grievous
[45.11] This is guidance; and (as for) those who
disbelieve in the communications of their Lord, they shall have
a painful punishment on account of uncleanness.
[45.12] Allah is He Who made subservient to you the sea
that the ships may run therein by His command, and that you may
seek of His grace, and that you may give thanks.
[45.13] And He has made subservient to you whatsoever is
in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, all, from
Himself; most surely there are signs in this for a people who
[45.14] Say to those who believe (that) they forgive
those who do not fear the days of Allah that He may reward a
people for what they earn.
[45.15] Whoever does good, it is for his own soul, and
whoever does evil, it is against himself; then you shall be
brought back to your-- Lord.
[45.16] And certainly We gave the Book and the wisdom and
the prophecy to the children of Israel, and We gave them of the
goodly things, and We made them excel the nations.
[45.17] And We gave them clear arguments in the affair,
but they did not differ until after knowledge had come to them
out of envy among themselves; surely your -Lord will judge
between them on the day of resurrection concerning that wherein
[45.18] Then We have made you follow a course in the
affair, therefore follow it, and do not follow the low desires
of those who do not know.
[45.19] Surely they shall not avail you in the least
against Allah; and surely the unjust are friends of each other,
and Allah is the guardian of those who guard (against evil).
[45.20] These are clear proofs for men, and a guidance
and a mercy for a people who are sure.
[45.21] Nay! do those who have wrought evil deeds think
that We will make them like those who believe and do good-- that
their life and their death shall be equal? Evil it is that they
[45.22] And Allah created the heavens and the earth with
truth and that every soul may be rewarded for what it has earned
and they shall not be wronged.
[45.23] Have you then considered him who takes his low
desire for his god, and Allah has made him err having knowledge
and has set a seal upon his ear and his heart and put a covering
upon his eye. Who can then guide him after Allah? Will you not
then be mindful?
[45.24] And they say: There is nothing but our life in
this world; we live and die and nothing destroys us but time,
and they have no knowledge of that; they only conjecture.
[45.25] And when Our clear communications are recited to
them, their argument is no other than that they say: Bring our
fathers (back) if you are truthful.
[45.26] Say: Allah gives you life, then He makes you die,
then will He gather you to the day of resurrection wherein is no
doubt, but most people do not know.
[45.27] And Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the
earth; and on the day when the hour shall come to pass, on that
day shall they perish who say false things.
[45.28] And you shall see every nation kneeling down;
every nation shall be called to its book: today you shall be
rewarded for what you did.
[45.29] This is Our book that speaks against you with
justice; surely We wrote what you did,
[45.30] Then as to those who believed and did good, their
Lord will make them enter into His mercy; that is the manifest
[45.31] As to those who disbelieved: What! were not My
communications recited to you? But you were proud and you were a
[45.32] And when it was said, Surely the promise of Allah
is true and as for the hour, there is no doubt about it, you
said: We do not know what the hour is; we do not think (that it
will come to pass) save a passing thought, and we are not at all
[45.33] And the evil (consequences) of what they did
shall become manifest to them and that which they mocked shall
[45.34] And it shall be said: Today We forsake you as you
neglected the meeting of this day of yours and your abode is the
fire, and there are not for you any helpers:
[45.35] That is because you took the communications of
Allah for a jest and the life of this world deceived you. So on
that day they shall not be brought forth from it, nor shall they
be granted goodwill.
[45.36] Therefore to Allah is due (all) praise, the Lord
of the heavens and the Lord of the earth, the Lord of the
[45.37] And to Him belongs greatness in the heavens and
the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
