In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah. To Him belongs the kingdom and to Him is due all praise, He has power over all things.[1] It is He Who has created you; yet some of you are unbelievers and some are believers. Allah is observant of all your actions.[2] He created the heavens and the earth to manifest the truth. He shaped you and shaped you well, and to Him you shall all return.[3] He knows all that is in the heavens and the earth. He knows what you conceal and what you reveal, and Allah knows what is in your breast.[4] Have you not heard of those who disbelieved before you? So they tasted the evil result of their deeds, and in the Hereafter there shall be a painful punishment for them.[5] That is because, when their Rasools came to them with clear revelations, they said: “Are human beings going to guide us?” So they disbelieved and paid no heed. Allah has no need of such people. Allah is free of all needs, worthy of all praise.[6] The unbelievers claim that they shall not be raised to life again. Tell them: “Indeed, by my Rabb, you shall surely be raised to life again! Then you shall be told of all that you have done, and that is easy for Allah."[7] Therefore, believe in Allah and His Rasool, and in the Light which We have revealed. Allah is well aware of all your actions.[8] The Day when He will gather you all will be the Day of Assembly, which shall be the Day of mutual loss and gain among the people. Those who believe in Allah and do good deeds, He will remove from them their sins and admit them to gardens beneath which rivers flow, to live therein forever, and that will be the supreme achievement.[9] As for those who disbelieved and deny Our revelations, they will become the inmates of hell, wherein they shall live forever, and that is an evil abode.[10]


To Allah belongs the kingdom of heavens and earth, and He knows all that you conceal and reveal

Surely there will be life after death, Day of Judgment and reward for good and bad deeds

No affliction can ever befall except by the leave of Allah. He that believes in Allah, his heart is guided to the Right Way. Allah has knowledge of all things.[11] Obey Allah and obey His Rasool; but if you pay no heed, then you should know that Our Rasool’s responsibility is nothing but to convey the message plainly.[12] Allah! There is no god but Him, therefore, in Allah Alone let the believers put their trust.[13] O believers! Surely among your wives and your children there are some who are your enemies: so beware of them. But if you pardon, overlook and forgive their faults, then know that Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.[14] Your wealth and your children are but a trial. It is Allah with Whom is the greatest reward.[15] Therefore, fear Allah as much as you can, listen to His message attentively, be obedient, and be charitable, this is for your own good. Those who are saved from the covetousness of their own souls, it is they who are truly successful.[16] If you lend to Allah a goodly loan, He will pay you back manifold, and will forgive you your sins. Allah is Appreciative and Forbearing to those who are grateful.[17] He has the knowledge of the unseen and the seen, He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.[18]


No affliction can ever befall except by the leave of Allah

Among your wives and children there are some who are your enemies, be aware of them

Major Issues, Divine Law and Guidance:

* To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and He knows all that you conceal and reveal.
* Surely there will be life after death, the Day of Judgement and reward for good and bad deeds.
* No affliction can ever befall anyone except by the leave of Allah.
* Among your wives and children there are some who are your enemies, be aware of them.

The theme of this Sürah is an invitation to the Faith, obedience (to Allah) and the teaching of good morals. The sequence followed is that the first four verses are addressed to all men; verses 5-10 to those men who do not believe in the invitation of the Qur’an; and verses 11- l8 to those who accept and believe in this invitation. In the verses addressed to all men, they have been made aware in a few brief sentences of the following four truths:

  1. That the universe in which you live is not Godless, but its Creator, Master and Ruler is an All Powerful Allah, and everything in it testifies to His being Who is perfect and absolutely faultless.
  2. That the universe is not without purpose and wisdom. Its Creator has created it to manifest the truth. No one should be under the delusion that it is just a show, which began without a purpose and will come to an end with out a purpose.
  3. That the excellent form that Allah has created you with and the choice that He has given you to choose between belief and unbelief is not a useless and meaningless activity so that it may be of no consequence whether you choose belief or unbelief. In fact, God is watching as to how you exercise your choice.
  4. That you have not been created irresponsible and unanswerable. You are to return ultimately to your Creator, and will meet the Being who is aware of everything in the universe, from Whom nothing is hidden, and to Whom even the innermost thoughts of peoples' minds are known.

After stating these truths about the Universe and Man, the address turns to the disbelievers and their attention is drawn to the two causes of prior nations' destruction:
A. They refused to believe in the Rasools whom Allah sent for their guidance, with the result that Allah too left them to themselves, and that they invented their own philosophies of life and went on groping their way from one error to another.

B. They rejected the doctrine of the Hereafter, and thought this worldly life to be an end in itself, and believed that there was no life hereafter where they will render an account of their deeds before Allah. This corrupted their attitude towards life, and their morals and character became so polluted that eventually the scourge of Allah came and eliminated them from the scene.

After stating these historical facts, the disbelievers are admonished to wake up and believe in Allah, His Rasool and the Light of Guidance that Allah has sent in the form of The Qur’an if they want to avoid the fate met by the former peoples. Besides, they are warned that the Day shall eventually come when all the former and the latter generations will be gathered in one place and the misdeeds committed by each will be exposed before all mankind. Then addressing the believers, a few important instructions are given:

i. Whatever affliction befalls a person in the world, it befalls with Allah’s leave. Whoever in this state of affliction remains steadfast to the Faith, Allah blesses his heart with guidance.

ii. The believer is not required to affirm the Faith with the tongue only, but after the affirmation of the Faith he should practically obey Allah and His Messenger. If he turns away from obedience he would himself be respon- sible for his loss.

iii. The believer should place his trust in Allah alone and not in any other power of this world. iv. Worldly goods and children are a trial for it is their love that generally distracts man from the path of Allah and His obedience. Therefore, the believers should beware of this fact about their children, and wives lest they directly or indirectly become robbers for them on the Way of Allah ; and that they should spend their wealth for the sake of Allah so that their self remains safe against the temptations of Satan.

v. Every person is responsible only to the extent of his/her power and ability. Allah does not demand that man should exert himself beyond his power and ability. However, the believer should try his best to live in fear of Allah as much as possible, and should see that he does not transgress the limits set by Allah in his speech, conduct and dealings.
