In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Alif Lăm M'ďm.[1] This Book (Al-Qur'an), in which there is no doubt, is revealed by the Rabb of the worlds.[2] Do the people say: “He (Muhammad) has forged it?” Nay! It is the Truth from your Rabb, so that you may warn a people to whom no Warner has come before you: so that they may receive guidance.[3] It is Allah Who has created the heavens, the earth and all that is between them in six periods, then firmly established Himself on the Throne of Authority. You have no guardian or intercessor besides Him. Will you not then take heed?[4] He plans all affairs from the heavens to the earth: then each affair ascends to Him (takes place) in a time period which, to your calculations, is one thousand years.[5] Such is He, the Knower of all the hidden and the open, the Almighty, the Merciful.[6] It is He Who has given the best form to everything that He has created. He originated the creation of man from clay;[7] then automated the creation of his progeny by an extract of a despicable water;[8] then He fashioned him in due proportion and breathed into him of His spirit. He gave you ears, eyes and heart; yet you are seldom thankful.[9] They say: “What! Once we are lost in the earth, shall we be created afresh?” Nay! They deny the fact that they will ever meet their Rabb.[10] Say: “The angel of death (Izra‘il) who is assigned for you will carry off your souls and bring you back to your Rabb.”[11]


The Qur'an which there is no doubt, is revealed by Allah to Muhammad, so that he may warn those people to whom no Warner has come before

If only you could visualize when the criminals will hang their heads before their Rabb saying: “Our Rabb! We have seen and we have heard; please send us back to the world and we will do good deeds: we are now convinced."[12] In response to that, it will be said: “Had We so willed, We could have given every soul its guidance. But My word which I had said has been fulfilled, that I shall fill hell with jinns and men all together."[13] Now taste the reward for your forgetting the meeting of this Day - We too have forgotten you now - taste the everlasting punishment in consequence of your misdeeds.”[14]


On the Day of Judgement, the unbelievers shall believe but that belief will be of no benefit to them

Only those people believe in Our revelations, who, when they are reminded of them, prostrate themselves in adoration and celebrate the praises of their Rabb and are not puffed up with pride.[15] Who forsake their beds and invoke their Rabb with fear and hope; and they spend in charity out of the sustenance which We have given them.[16] No one knows what delights of the eye have been kept hidden for them as a reward for their good deeds.[17] Can he who is a believer be like the one who is a transgressor? Of course, they are not alike.[18] As for those who believe and do good deeds, they shall be awarded the gardens of paradise as a reward of their labors.[19] But those who transgress shall be cast into the fire. Whenever they try to escape from it, they shall be pushed back into it, and it will be said to them: “Taste the punishment of the fire which you used to deny."[20] We shall certainly make them taste the lighter torment in this life before the greater punishment of the hereafter, so that they may return to the Right Way.[21] Who could be more unjust than the one who is reminded of the revelations of his Rabb and he turns away from them? Surely We shall take vengeance on such criminals.[22]


There is a special reward for those who forsake their beds and invoke their Rabb with fear and hope and spend in charity

We gave the Book to Musa - so be not in doubt for receiving this Book which meets the same criteria - and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel.[23] When they showed patience, We appointed from among them leaders giving guidance under Our command so long as they continued to have faith in Our revelations.[24] Surely your Rabb will decide between them, on the Day of Resurrection, concerning those matters wherein they differ among themselves.[25] Do they not learn a lesson from the historical events of how many generations We have destroyed before them in whose dwelling-places they move about? Surely there are signs in this. Do they not listen?[26] Do they not see how We drive the rain to the parched lands and therefrom bring forth crops of which they and their cattle eat? Have they no vision?[27] Still they say: “When will this judgement take place, if you are telling the truth?”[28] Tell them: “On the Day of Judgement it will be of no benefit to the unbelievers even if they believe, since at that time they will not be granted a respite.”[29] Therefore, pay no heed to them, and wait as they are waiting.[30]


The Qur'an is similar to the Book which was given to the Prophet Musa

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* Al-Qur’an is beyond all doubts and is sent to warn those people to whom no Warner has come before.
* On the Day of Judgement, the disbelievers shall believe but that belief will be of no benefit to them.
* There is a special reward for those who forsake their beds and invoke their Rabb with fear and hope, and spend in charity.
* Al-Qur’an is similar to the Book which was given to the Prophet Musa (Moses).

Theme and Topics

The main theme of this Sürah is to remove the doubts that the people had concerning Tawhďd, the Hereafter and the Prophethood, and to invite them to all these three realities. The disbelievers are asked to use their common sense and judge for themselves as to which of the things presented by the Qur’an are strange and novel: “Look at the administration of the heavens and the earth: consider your own creation and structure. Don’t these things testify to the teaching which this Prophet is presenting before you in the Qur’an? Does the system of the universe point towards Tawhďd or towards shirk? Does your intellect testify that the One Who has given you your present existence will not be able to create you once again?” Then a scene of the Hereafter has been depicted, the fruits of belief and the evil consequences of disbelief have been mentioned and the people exhorted to give up disbelief even before they meet their doom and accept the teaching of the Qur'an, which will be to their own advantage in the Hereafter. Then they are told that it is Allah’s supreme Mercy that He does not seize man immediately for his errors to punish him finally and decisively. Instead he warns him beforehand by afflicting him with small troubles, hardships, calamities, losses and strokes of misfortune so that he may wake up and take admonition. Then they are told: “This is not the first novel event of its kind that a Book has been sent down upon a man from Allah. Before this the Book was sent to Musa (Moses), whom you all know.

In conclusion, the Prophet is asked to say: “ When the time comes for final Judgement regarding you and us, believing then will be of no benefit to you at all. Believe now if you want to save yourselves from punishment on the Day of Judgement.”
