In the name of Allah, the
Beneficent, the Merciful.
[46.1] Ha Mim.
[46.2] The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the
Mighty, the Wise.
[46.3] We did not create the heavens and the earth and
what is between them two save with truth and (for) an appointed
term; and those who disbelieve turn aside from what they are
[46.4] Say: Have you considered what you call upon
besides Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth, or
have they a share in the heavens? Bring me a book before this or
traces of knowledge, if you are truthful.
[46.5] And who is in greater error than he who calls
besides Allah upon those that will not answer him till the day
of resurrection and they are heedless of their call?
[46.6] And when men are gathered together they shall be
their enemies, and shall be deniers of their worshipping (them).
[46.7] And when Our clear communications are recited to
them, those who disbelieve say with regard to the truth when it
comes to them: This is clear magic.
[46.8] Nay! they say: He has forged it. Say: If I have
forged it, you do not control anything for me from Allah; He
knows best what you utter concerning it; He is enough as a
witness between me and you, and He is the Forgiving, the
[46.9] Say: I am not the first of the apostles, and I do
not know what will be done with me or with you: I do not follow
anything but that which is revealed to me, and I am nothing but
a plain warner.
[46.10] Say: Have you considered if it is from Allah, and
you disbelieve in it, and a witness from among the children of
Israel has borne witness of one like it, so he believed, while
you are big with pride; surely Allah does not guide the unjust
[46.11] And those who disbelieve say concerning those who
believe: If it had been a good, they would not have gone ahead
of us therein. And as they do not seek to be rightly directed
thereby, they say: It is an old lie.
[46.12] And before it the Book of Musa was a guide and a
mercy: and this is a Book verifying (it) in the Arabic language
that it may warn those who are unjust and as good news for the
doers of good.
[46.13] Surely those who say, Our Lord is Allah, then
they continue on the right way, they shall have no fear nor
shall they grieve.
[46.14] These are the dwellers of the garden, abiding
therein: a reward for what they did.
[46.15] And We have enjoined on man doing of good to his
parents; with trouble did his mother bear him and with trouble
did she bring him forth; and the bearing of him and the weaning
of him was thirty months; until when he attains his maturity and
reaches forty years, he says: My Lord! grant me that I may give
thanks for Thy favor which Thou hast bestowed on me and on my
parents, and that I may do good which pleases Thee and do good
to me in respect of my offspring; surely I turn to Thee, and
surely I am of those who submit.
[46.16] These are they from whom We accept the best of
what they have done and pass over their evil deeds, among the
dwellers of the garden; the promise of truth which they were
[46.17] And he who says to his parents: Fie on you! do
you threaten me that I shall be brought forth when generations
have already passed away before me? And they both call for
Allah's aid: Woe to you! believe, surely the promise of Allah is
true. But he says: This is nothing but stories of the ancients.
[46.18] These are they against whom the word has proved
true among nations of the jinn and the men that have already
passed away before them; surely they are losers.
[46.19] And for all are degrees according to what they
did, and that He may pay them back fully their deeds and they
shall not be wronged.
[46.20] And on the day when those who disbelieve shall be
brought before the fire: You did away with your good things in
your life of the world and you enjoyed them for a while, so
today you shall be rewarded with the punishment of abasement
because you were unjustly proud in the land and because you
[46.21] And mention the brother of Ad; when he warned his
people in the sandy plains,-- and indeed warners came before him
and after him-- saying Serve none but Allah; surely I fear for
you the punishment of a grievous day.
[46.22] They said: Have you come to us to turn us away
from our gods; then bring us what you threaten us with, if you
are of the truthful ones.
[46.23] He said: The knowledge is only with Allah, and I
deliver to you the message with which I am sent, but I see you
are a people who are ignorant.
[46.24] So when they saw it as a cloud appearing in the
sky advancing towards their valleys, they said: This is a cloud
which will give us rain. Nay! it is what you sought to hasten
on, a blast of wind in which is a painful punishment,
[46.25] Destroying everything by the command of its Lord,
so they became such that naught could be seen except their
dwellings. Thus do We reward the guilty people.
[46.26] And certainly We had established them in what We
have not established you in, and We had given-- them ears and
eyes and hearts, but neither their ears, nor their eyes, nor
their hearts availed them aught, since they denied the
communications of Allah, and that which they mocked encompassed
[46.27] And certainly We destroyed the towns which are
around you, and We repeat the communications that they might
[46.28] Why did not then those help them whom they took
for gods besides Allah to draw (them) nigh (to Him)? Nay! they
were lost to them; and this was their lie and what they forged.
[46.29] And when We turned towards you a party of the
jinn who listened to the Quran; so when they came to it, they
said: Be silent; then when it was finished, they turned back to
their people warning (them).
[46.30] They said: O our people! we have listened to a
Book revealed after Musa verifying that which is before it,
guiding to the truth and to a right path:
[46.31] O our people! accept the Divine caller and
believe in Him, He will forgive you of your faults and protect
you from a painful punishment.
[46.32] And whoever does not accept the-Divine caller, he
shall not escape in the earth and he shall not have guardians
besides Him, these are in manifest error.
[46.33] Have they not considered that Allah, Who created
the heavens and the earth and was not tired by their creation,
is able to give life to the dead? Aye! He has surely power over
[46.34] And on the day when those who disbelieve shall be
brought before the fire: Is it not true? They shall say: Aye! by
our Lord! He will say: Then taste the punishment, because you
[46.35] Therefore bear up patiently as did the apostles
endowed with constancy bear up with patience and do not seek to
hasten for them (their doom). On the day that they shall see
what they are promised they shall be as if they had not tarried
save an hour of the day. A sufficient exposition! Shall then any
be destroyed save the transgressing people?
