  4509 2612 3445 1969 46:1     HaMeem  
        تَنْزِيلُ الْكِتَبِ مِنَ اللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ  
  4510 2613 3446 1970 1558(2296), 761(1075) 1146 46:2     Revelation of the scripture is from God the Almighty, The All Wise.  
        مَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَوَتِ وَالأرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِلا بِالْحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا عَمَّا أُنْذِرُوا مُعْرِضُونَ  
  4511 2614 3447 1971 1147 46:3     We did not create the vacua and matter and everything between them except according to the truth, and for a specific time period. And the unfaithful will always turn away no matter how they are warned.  
        قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُمْ مَا تَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ أَرُونِي مَاذَا خَلَقُوا مِنَ الأرْضِ أَمْ لَهُمْ شِرْكٌ فِي السَّمَوَتِ اِئْتُونِي بِكِتَبٍ مِنْ قَبْلِ هَذَا أَوْ أَثَرَةٍ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَدِقِينَ  
  4512 2615 3448 1972 1559(2297), 762(1076) 3319 46:4     Say; do you see what you are calling besides God? Show me what they have created from matter? Do they possess any partnership in vacua? Bring me a book prior to this or any sign of knowledge if you are truthful.   
        وَمَنْ أَضَلُّ مِمَّنْ يَدْعُو مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مَنْ لا يَسْتَجِيبُ لَهُ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَمَةِ وَهُمْ عَنْ دُعَائِهِمْ غَفِلُونَ  
  4513 2616 3449 1973 1560(2298), 763(1077) 1148 46:5     And who is more astray than the one who calls upon one besides God who cannot respond to him until the Day of Resurrection and who is completely unaware of his callings.   
        وَإِذَا حُشِرَ النَّاسُ كَانُوا لَهُمْ أَعْدَاءً وَكَانُوا بِعِبَادَتِهِمْ كَفِرِينَ  
  4514 2617 3450 1974 3320 46:6     And when the people are summoned, they will become their enemies and will disown their idolatry.    
        وَإِذَا تُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ آيَتُنَا بَيِّنَتٍ قَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِلْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَاءَهُمْ هَذَا سِحْرٌ مُبِينٌ  
  4515 2618 3451 1975 1149 46:7     And when Our proven signs are recited to them, the unfaithful say about the truth when it comes to them; this is clearly magic.   
        أَمْ يَقُولُونَ افْتَرَاهُ قُلْ إِنِ افْتَرَيْتُهُ فَلا تَمْلِكُونَ لِي مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيْئًا هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تُفِيضُونَ فِيهِ كَفَى بِهِ شَهِيدًا بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ وَهُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ  
  4516 2619 3452 1976 1561(2299), 764(1078) 3321 46:8     Or they say; he has fabricated it.  Say, if I forged it, then I can gain nothing from God. He fully knows everything you scheme.  He suffices as a witness between me and you. And He is the All Forgiving, The All Merciful.  
        قُلْ مَا كُنْتُ بِدْعًا مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَمَا أَدْرِي مَا يُفْعَلُ بِي وَلا بِكُمْ إِنْ أَتَّبِعُ إِلا مَا يُوحَى إِلَيَّ وَمَا أَنَا إِلا نَذِيرٌ مُبِينٌ  
  4517 2620 3453 1977 3322 46:9     Say; I am not setting a precedent amongst the messengers and I do not know what will happen to me or to you.  I am to follow only what is inspired to me and I am only a clear warner.   
        قُلْ أَرَأَيْتُمْ إِنْ كَانَ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ وَكَفَرْتُمْ بِهِ وَشَهِدَ شَاهِدٌ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَئِيلَ عَلَى مِثْلِهِ فَآمَنَ وَاسْتَكْبَرْتُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّلِمِينَ  
  4518 2621 3454 1978 1562(2300,2301), 765(1079,1080) 3323 46:10     Say; what if it is from God and you disbelieve in it? A witness from amongst the Children of Israel has borne witness to something like this and then he believed, while you turned arrogant. God does not guide a people who commit injustice.   
        وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَوْ كَانَ خَيْرًا مَا سَبَقُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَإِذْ لَمْ يَهْتَدُوا بِهِ فَسَيَقُولُونَ هَذَا إِفْكٌ قَدِيمٌ  
  4519 2622 3455 1979 1150 46:11     And the unfaithful said about those who are faithful; if it were any good then they would not have rushed to it, and when they see they cannot guide themselves thereby, they will say; this is just an old fabrication.  
        وَمِنْ قَبْلِهِ كِتَبُ مُوسَى إِمَامًا وَرَحْمَةً وَهَذَا كِتَبٌ مُصَدِّقٌ لِسَانًا عَرَبِيًّا لِيُنْذِرَ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا وَبُشْرَى لِلْمُحْسِنِينَ  
  4520 2623 3456 1980 3324 46:12     And before this, the book of Moses served as a guide and a mercy. And this is a book, a confirmation in an Arabic tongue to warn the unjust and to give good news to the do-gooders.  
        إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا فَلا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ  
  4521 2624 3457 1981 1563(2302), 766(1081) 1151 46:13     Indeed, those who said; our Lord is God, then they stood firm, they will have nothing to fear nor will they ever grieve.  
        أُولَئِكَ أَصْحَبُ الْجَنَّةِ خَلِدِينَ فِيهَا جَزَاءً بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ  
  4522 2625 3458 1982 3325 46:14     These will be the dwellers of Paradise, wherein they abide forever as a reward for their deeds.  
        وَوَصَّيْنَا الإنْسَنَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ إِحْسَنًا حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ كُرْهًا وَوَضَعَتْهُ كُرْهًا وَحَمْلُهُ وَفِصَلُهُ ثَلثُونَ شَهْرًا حَتَّى إِذَا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُ وَبَلَغَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً قَالَ رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِي أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيَّ وَعَلَى وَالِدَيَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَلِحًا تَرْضَهُ وَأَصْلِحْ لِي فِي ذُرِّيَّتِي إِنِّي تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ وَإِنِّي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ  
  4523 2626 3459 1983 3326 46:15     We have enjoined the human being to be kind to his parents. His mother carried him arduously, and gave birth to him arduously. It takes thirty months until weaning. At last, when he reaches maturity and reaches forty years, he says; my Lord, make me be grateful for your blessings that You bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and do righteous work to please you; and grant me righteous heirs. Indeed, I repent to You and indeed I am one of the Peace Offerers.   
        أُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ نَتَقَبَّلُ عَنْهُمْ أَحْسَنَ مَا عَمِلُوا وَنَتَجاوَزُ عَنْ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ فِي أَصْحَبِ الْجَنَّةِ وَعْدَ الصِّدْقِ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ  
  4524 2627 3460 1984 3327 46:16     These are the ones whom We will accept the best of their deeds and redeem their bad deeds, for they will be among the dwellers of Paradise, a true promise, which was given to them.  
        وَالَّذِي قَالَ لِوَالِدَيْهِ أُفٍّ لَكُمَا أَتَعِدَانِنِي أَنْ أُخْرَجَ وَقَدْ خَلَتِ الْقُرُونُ مِنْ قَبْلِي وَهُمَا يَسْتَغِيثَانِ اللَّهَ وَيْلَكَ آمِنْ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَيَقُولُ مَا هَذَا إِلا أَسَاطِيرُ الأوَّلِينَ  
  4525 2628 3461 1985 1564(2303,2304), 767(1082,1083) 1152 46:17     And there is the one who says to his parents; woe to both of you; are you promising me that I will be resurrected, even though generations have perished before me? And the two of them implore God, saying; woe to you, have faith, for indeed God's promise is the truth. But he says; this is nothing but tales from the past.   
        أُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ حَقَّ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقَوْلُ فِي أُمَمٍ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإنْسِ إِنَّهُمْ كَانُوا خَسِرِينَ  
  4526 2629 3462 1986 3328 46:18     These are the ones who have fulfilled the promise among the previous generations of jinns and humans that perished. Indeed, they were all losers.   
        وَلِكُلٍّ دَرَجَتٌ مِمَّا عَمِلُوا وَلِيُوَفِّيَهُمْ أَعْمَلَهُمْ وَهُمْ لا يُظْلَمُونَ  
  4527 2630 3463 1987 1153 46:19     And for each one there is a rank due to their deeds and He will recompense them for their deeds, and they will suffer no injustice.  
        وَيَوْمَ يُعْرَضُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا عَلَى النَّارِ أَذْهَبْتُمْ طَيِّبَاتِكُمْ فِي حَيَاتِكُمُ الدُّنْيَا وَاسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهَا فَالْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ عَذَابَ الْهُونِ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَسْتَكْبِرُونَ فِي الأرْضِ بِغَيْرِ الْحَقِّ وَبِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَفْسُقُونَ  
  4528 2631 3464 1988 3329 46:20     And the day the unfaithful come face to face with Hell: "You have wasted your good things in your worldly life, and you rejoiced in them, consequently, today you will suffer the humiliating suffering because of your arrogance on the land, disregarding the truth, and because of your wickedness."   
        وَاذْكُرْ أَخَا عَادٍ إِذْ أَنْذَرَ قَوْمَهُ بِالأحْقَافِ وَقَدْ خَلَتِ النُّذُرُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ أَلا تَعْبُدُوا إِلا اللَّهَ إِنِّي أَخَافُ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابَ يَوْمٍ عَظِيمٍ  
  4529 2632 3465 1989 1565(2305), 768(1084) 3330 46:21     And remember the brother of Aad as he warned his people regarding the dunes; and indeed there have been continuous warnings that you shall not worship except God, I surely fear for you the suffering of a great day.  
        قَالُوا أَجِئْتَنَا لِتَأْفِكَنَا عَنْ آلِهَتِنَا فَأْتِنَا بِمَا تَعِدُنَا إِنْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الصَّدِقِينَ  
  4530 2633 3466 1990 3331 46:22     They said; have you come to divert us from our gods? Then bring us what you have promised us if you are truthful.   
        قَالَ إِنَّمَا الْعِلْمُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَأُبَلِّغُكُمْ مَا أُرْسِلْتُ بِهِ وَلَكِنِّي أَرَاكُمْ قَوْمًا تَجْهَلُونَ  
  4531 2634 3467 1991 1566(2306), 769(1085) 1154 46:23     He said; indeed the knowledge thereof is only with God. I am just delivering what I was sent with, however, I see that you are ignorant people.  
        فَلَمَّا رَأَوْهُ عَارِضًا مُسْتَقْبِلَ أَوْدِيَتِهِمْ قَالُوا هَذَا عَارِضٌ مُمْطِرُنَا بَلْ هُوَ مَا اسْتَعْجَلْتُمْ بِهِ رِيحٌ فِيهَا عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ  
  4532 2635 3468 1992 3332 46:24     Then, when they saw a cloud spanning the sky, coming towards their valleys, they said; this cloud will bring us rain. On the contrary, it is what you were challenging, a wind carrying a painful suffering.   
        تُدَمِّرُ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ بِأَمْرِ رَبِّهَا فَأَصْبَحُوا لا يُرَى إِلا مَسَكِنُهُمْ كَذَلِكَ نَجْزِي الْقَوْمَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ  
  4533 2636 3469 1993 3333 46:25     It destroyed everything according to its Lord's command. Then in the morning, nothing could be seen except their dwellings. We thus requite the guilty people.   
        وَلَقَدْ مَكَّنَّاهُمْ فِيمَا إِنْ مَكَّنَّاكُمْ فِيهِ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُمْ سَمْعًا وَأَبْصَارًا وَأَفْئِدَةً فَمَا أَغْنَى عَنْهُمْ سَمْعُهُمْ وَلا أَبْصَارُهُمْ وَلا أَفْئِدَتُهُمْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ إِذْ كَانُوا يَجْحَدُونَ بِآيَتِ اللَّهِ وَحَاقَ بِهِمْ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ  
  4534 2637 3470 1994 1567(2307), 770(1086) 3334 46:26     And We had established them in the same manner that We have established you, and We gave them the hearing, the eyesight and the mind, but their hearing, their eyesight, and their minds did not benefit them in the least once they argued about God's signs, and the very thing they mocked, came back to haunt them.   
        وَلَقَدْ أَهْلَكْنَا مَا حَوْلَكُمْ مِنَ الْقُرَى وَصَرَّفْنَا الآيَتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ  
  4535 2638 3471 1995 3335 46:27     And We indeed annihilated communities around you, and We explained the proofs that they may reform.   
        فَلَوْلا نَصَرَهُمُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ قُرْبَانًا آلِهَةً بَلْ ضَلُّوا عَنْهُمْ وَذَلِكَ إِفْكُهُمْ وَمَا كَانُوا يَفْتَرُونَ  
  4536 2639 3472 1996 1568(2308), 771(1087) 3336 46:28     Therefore, why was not there any help for them from gods besides God whom they implored to bring them closer to Him? On the contrary, they abandoned them. And such was their concoction, and their fabrication.   
        وَإِذْ صَرَفْنَا إِلَيْكَ نَفَرًا مِنَ الْجِنِّ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقُرْآنَ فَلَمَّا حَضَرُوهُ قَالُوا أَنْصِتُوا فَلَمَّا قُضِيَ وَلَّوْا إِلَى قَوْمِهِمْ مُنْذِرِينَ  
  4537 2640 3473 1997 1155 46:29     And when We led to you a group of jinns to listen to the Quran; when they arrived, they said; be quiet, and when it was over, they went to their people, warning.   
        قَالُوا يَا قَوْمَنَا إِنَّا سَمِعْنَا كِتَبًا أُنْزِلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مُوسَى مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ وَإِلَى طَرِيقٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ  
  4538 2641 3474 1998 3337 46:30     They said, O our people, we have indeed heard a book revealed after Moses, confirming what was revealed previously; it guides to the truth and to a straight path.   
        يَا قَوْمَنَا أَجِيبُوا دَاعِيَ اللَّهِ وَآمِنُوا بِهِ يَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ مِنْ ذُنُوبِكُمْ وَيُجِرْكُمْ مِنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ  
  4539 2642 3475 1999 1569(2309), 772(1088) 1156 46:31     O our people; respond to the caller who calls to God and believe in Him, He then forgives your sins and saves you from a painful suffering.   
        وَمَنْ لا يُجِبْ دَاعِيَ اللَّهِ فَلَيْسَ بِمُعْجِزٍ فِي الأرْضِ وَلَيْسَ لَهُ مِنْ دُونِهِ أَولِيَاءُ أُولَئِكَ فِي ضَللٍ مُبِينٍ  
  4540 2643 3476 2000 1570(2310), 773(1089) 3338 46:32     Anyone who does not respond to the caller, who calls to God, shall realize that he cannot be a miracle worker on the land and he has no ally besides Him. These have clearly gone astray.   
        أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأرْضَ وَلَمْ يَعْيَ بِخَلْقِهِنَّ بِقَدِرٍ عَلَى أَنْ يُحْيِيَ الْمَوْتَى بَلَى إِنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ  
  4541 2644 3477 2001 1571(2311), 774(1090) 3339 46:33     Do they not see that indeed God, the One who created the vacua and matter and was never burdened by their creation, is able to resurrect the dead? Yes indeed, He is All Powerful over all things.  
        وَيَوْمَ يُعْرَضُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا عَلَى النَّارِ أَلَيْسَ هَذَا بِالْحَقِّ قَالُوا بَلَى وَرَبِّنَا قَالَ فَذُوقُوا الْعَذَابَ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَكْفُرُونَ  
  4542 2645 3478 2002 3340 46:34     And the day the unfaithful come face to face with Hell: "Is this not the truth?" They will say; yes indeed, by our Lord.  He will say; then taste the agony of what you continuously denied.  
        فَاصْبِرْ كَمَا صَبَرَ أُولُو الْعَزْمِ مِنَ الرُّسُلِ وَلا تَسْتَعْجِلْ لَهُمْ كَأَنَّهُمْ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ مَا يُوعَدُونَ لَمْ يَلْبَثُوا إِلا سَاعَةً مِنْ نَهَارٍ بَلغٌ فَهَلْ يُهْلَكُ إِلا الْقَوْمُ الْفَسِقُونَ  
  4543 2646 3479 2003 3341 46:35     Therefore be patient, like messengers with strong character who resorted to patience, and do not be in a rush for them. The day they see what has been promised to them, it would seem as though they had only lasted for an hour of daylight. Here is the message; is it not a fact that only the wicked shall perish?
