In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Hă M'ďm.[1] This Book is revealed from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.[2] Surely in the heavens and the earth there are signs for the true believers.[3] and in your own creation and that of animals which are scattered through the earth, there are signs for those who are firm in faith,[4] and in the alternation of night and day, in the sustenance that Allah sends down from heaven with which He revives the earth after its death and in the changing of the winds, there are signs for those who use their common sense.[5] These are the revelations of Allah, which We are reciting to you in all truth. Then, in what report will they believe if not that of Allah and His revelations?[6] Woe to each lying sinner[7] before whom the revelations of Allah are recited: he hears them, yet he arrogantly persists as though he never heard them; announce to him a painful punishment.[8] And when something of Our revelations come to his knowledge, he takes them as a joke; for all such people there will be a humiliating punishment.[9] Beyond them there lies hell, and nothing of what they have earned in this world will be of any benefit to them, nor those whom they have taken as their protectors besides Allah, and they shall have grievous punishment.[10] This Qur’an is the true Guidance. As for those who deny the revelations of their Rabb, there will be a terribly painful punishment.[11]


Food for thought to those who are seeking the signs of Allah

If they do not believe in Allah and His revelations then in what report will they believe?

It is Allah Who has subjected the sea to you, so that ships may sail upon it by His command, and that you may seek His bounty and be grateful to Him.[12] He also subjected to you whatever is between the heavens and the earth; all from Himself. Surely there are signs in this for those who think.[13] O Prophet, tell the believers to bear with those who do not fear the coming of the bad days from Allah, so that He may Himself recompense those people according to what they have earned.[14] He that does a righteous deed, does it for his own good; and he that commits an evil, does so at his own peril. In the end, you all will be brought back to your Rabb.[15] We gave the Book to the Children of Israel and bestowed on them rulership and Prophethood. We provided them with good things of life, exalted them above the nations,[16] and gave them clear instructions relating to the matters of religion through revealing to them the Torah. Then they differed among themselves, not because of ignorance but, after the knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. Surely your Rabb will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning the matters in which they have set up differences.[17]


Allah has subjected the seas and all that is between the heavens and the earth for human beings

The Israelites made sects in their religion after the knowledge had come to them through Torah

O Prophet, We have put you on the Right Way (Shari'ah) concerning the religion, so follow it, and do not yield to the desires of ignorant people;[18] for they can in no way protect you against Allah. In fact, the wrongdoers are protectors of one another, while the protector of the righteous is Allah Himself.[19] These (the Qur’an and Shari'ah) are the eye openers for mankind; a guidance and a blessing to the true believers.[20] Do the evil doers think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe and do good deeds, and that their lives and deaths shall be alike? Worst is the judgment that they make![21]


The Wrongdoers are protectors of one another while the protector of righteous is Allah Himself

Allah has created the heavens and the earth to manifest the truth, and to reward each soul according to its deeds, and none of them shall be wronged.[22] Have you considered the case of such an individual who has made his own desires as his god, and Allah having knowledge let him go astray, and sealed his hearing and heart and drew a veil over his sight? Who is there to guide him after Allah has withdrawn His guidance? Will you not learn a lesson?[23] The disbelievers say: “There is nothing but our life of this world. We live and die; nothing but time destroys us." In fact, they have no knowledge concerning this. They are merely guessing.[24] When Our clear revelations are recited to them, they have no other argument but to say: “Bring our forefathers back if what you say is true!”[25] O Prophet tell them: “It is Allah Who gives you life and later causes you to die; then it is He Who will gather you all on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt, yet most people do not understand."[26]


He who has made his own desires as his god, Allah lets him go astray and sets a seal upon his ears and heart

To Allah belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. On that Day when the Hour of Judgment will be established, those who have denied His revelations shall be doomed to loss.[27] You shall see every nation on its knees. Every nation shall be summoned to its book of record, and Allah will say: “Today you shall be rewarded for your deeds.[28] This book of Ours speaks about you with the truth. Surely We have recorded all your deeds."[29] As for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Rabb will admit them into His mercy. That will be a glorious achievement.[30] But as to those who disbelieved, Allah will say: “Were My revelations not recited to you? But you showed arrogance and became a people of criminals."[31] When it was said, "the promise of Allah is true and the Hour of Judgment is sure to come. You used to say, 'We don’t know what the Hour of Judgment is: we think it is just a conjecture, we are not convinced.'"[32] Then the evil of their deeds will become manifest to them, and they will be completely encircled by that which they used to mock at.[33] It will be said: “Today We will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours! Hellfire will be your home and none will be there to help you.[34] This is because you used to take Allah’s revelations as a joke and you let the worldly life deceive you." Therefore, on this Day neither shall they be taken out of hell, nor shall they be given a chance for amending their ways to please their Rabb.[35] So, praise be to Allah, the Rabb of the heavens, the Rabb of the earth and the Rabb of the worlds.[36] To Him belongs greatness throughout the heavens and the earth, and He Alone is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.[37]


Allah's address to the disbelievers on the Day of Judgment

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* If the disbelievers do not believe in Allah and His revelations then in what report will they believe!
* Allah has subjected the seas and all that is between the heavens and the earth for human beings.
* Israelites made sects in their religion after the knowledge has come to them through the Torah.
* Allah is the protector of righteous people.
* He that makes his own desires as his god, Allah will let him go astray and set a seal upon his ears and heart.
* Allah’s address to the disbelievers on the Day of Judgement.

It answers the doubts and objections of the disbelievers of Makkah about Tawhďd and the Hereafter and warns them regarding the attitude that they had adopted against the message of the Qur’an.

This discourse begins with the arguments for Tawhďd. In this connection, reference has been made to the countless signs that are found in the world, from man’s own body, to the earth and heavens, and it is pointed out that everywhere around him, man finds things which testify to Tawhďd which he refuses to acknowledge. If man sees carefully the variety of animals, the day and night, the rainfall and the vegetation growing thereby, the winds and his own creation, and ponders over them intelligently, he will find these Signs sufficiently convincing of the truth that this universe is not Godless, nor under the control of many gods, but it has been created by One God, called Allah, and He Alone is its Controller and Ruler. The countless forces and agencies that are serving his interests in the universe have not come into being just accidentally, nor have they been provided by gods and goddesses, but it is One God Alone Who has supplied and subjected them to him from Himself. If only a person uses his mind properly and rightly, his own intellect will proclaim that God Alone is man’s real Benefactor and He Alone deserves that man should pay obedience to Him.

About the hereafter Allah says: “It is utterly against reason and justice that the good and the bad, the obedient and the disobedient, the oppressor and the oppressed, should be made equal ultimately. Just as you did not become living of your own accord, but became living by Our power, so you do not die of your own accord, but die when We send death on you. And a time is certainly coming when you will all be gathered together. You may not believe in this because of your ignorance today, but the time will come when you will see it yourself. You will be presented before Allah and your whole book of conduct will be laid open bearing evidence against each of your misdeeds. Then you will come to know how dearly has your denial of the Hereafter and your mockery of it cost you.”
