The Believer

Revealed At Mecca, Verses: 85 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. Ha Mim (H.M.).(1)
  2. The sending down of the Book is from God the Mighty, the Knowing,(2)
  3. the Forgiver of sins, the Accepter of repentance Terrible in retribution, the Bountiful; there is no god but He; unto Him is the destination.(3)
  4. None disputes concerning the signs of God except the unbelievers, but let not their going to and fro in the land delude thee.(4)
  5. Before them, the people of Noah, and many factions after them, gave lies; and every community purposed to seize their Messenger, and they disputed by means of falsehood to rebut the truth thereby, then I seized them __ so how was My retribution!(5)
  6. And thus the Word of thy Lord was realized against the unbelievers that they are the people of the Fire.(6)
  7. Those who bear the throne and those round about it, celebrate the praise of their Lord and believe in Him, and they ask forgiveness for the Believers: `our Lord, Thou embracest everything in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who repented and followed Thy way, and save them from the punishment of Hell.(7)
  8. And our Lord, admit them to the gardens of eternity that thou hast promised them, and also those of their fathers, their wives and their offspring who acted right; surely Thou art the Mighty, the Wise;(8)
  9. and save them from evils; and whomsoever Thou savest from evils on that day, Thou hast had mercy on him; and that is the mighty triumph.'(9)
  10. To the unbelievers it shall be pronounced, `God's abhorrence was greater than your own abhorrence of yourselves, when you were called to belief and you disbelieved'.(10)
  11. They shall say, `Our Lord, Thou hast made us to die twice, and thou hast made us to live twice; now we confess our sins; is there any way to go forth?' __ (11)
  12. `This is because when God alone was called upon, you disbelieved, but if He was associated with others, you believed; now Judgement belongs to God, the High, the great.'(12)
  13. It is He who shows you His Signs, and sends down from heaven provision for you; yet none pays heed except him who turns to Him.(13)
  14. So call to God, making obedience sincerely His, though the unbelievers be averse.(14)
  15. Exalter of ranks, Lord of the Throne, He casts the Spirit of His Command upon whomsoever of His servants He will, that he may warn (people) of the Day of Meeting,(15)
  16. the day they will come forth; nothing of theirs shall be hidden from God. `Whose is the kingdom today?' __ ``God's, the One, the Omnipotent.(16)
  17. Today, every soul shall be recompensed for what it earned; no wrong today; surely God is swift at the reckoning'.(17)
  18. And warn them of the Approaching Day, when the hearts, choking with anguish, shall be at the throats; and there will be no bosom friend for the wrong-doers, nor any intercessor to be obeyed.(18)
  19. He knows the treachery of the eyes and what the breasts conceal.(19)
  20. And God shall decide on truth; and those they call upon, apart from Him, shall not decide anything; surely God is the Hearing, the Seeing.(20)
  21. And have they not journeyed in the land and seen how was the end of those before them? They were stronger than themselves, in might and in leaving traces in the earth, yet God seized them for their sins; and they had none to save them from God.(21)
  22. That was because their Messengers came to them with the clear signs, but they disbelieved, so God seized them; surely He is Strong and Terrible in Retribution.(22)
  23. And We sent Moses with Our signs and a clear authority(23)
  24. to Pharaoh, Haman and Korah, but they said, `a sorcerer, a big liar'.(24)
  25. And when he came to them with the truth from Us, they said, `kill the sons of those who have believed along with him, and let their women live'. But the guile of the unbelievers always goes astray.(25)
  26. And Pharaoh said, `leave me to kill Moses, and let him call to his Lord; I fear that he may not change your religion, or he may not cause disorder to prevail in the land'.(26)
  27. And Moses said, `I take refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant man, who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning'.(27)
  28. And a man, a Believer from Pharaoh's folk, who was hiding his belief, said, `will you kill a man because he says, `my Lord is God', and he has brought you the Clear Signs from your Lord? And if he is a liar, his lie shall go against him; and if he is truthful, then some of what he threatens you with, shall befall you; God does not guide him who is extravagant and a liar.(28)
  29. O my people, today yours is the kingdom, you being dominant in the land, but who will help us against the might of God, if it comes upon us?' Pharaoh said, `I show you only what I see, and I guide you only to the way of rectitude'.(29)
  30. And he who believed said, `O my people, I fear for you the like of the day of the factions,(30)
  31. the like of the case of Noah's people, Ad, Thamood, and those after them; and God does not desire wrong for His servants.(31)
  32. O my people, I fear for you the Day of Calling-out,(32)
  33. the day when you will turn back, retreating, there being no defender for you against God; and whomso God send astray, there is no guide for him.(33)
  34. And, of course, Joseph brought you the Clear Signs before, but you did not cease doubting what he brought you; until when he died, you said, `God shall not raise any Messenger after him.' Thus does God sends astray him who is extravagant and a doubter,(34)
  35. those who dispute concerning the Signs of God without any authority having come to them; very hateful is this in the sight of God and in the sight of the Believers; thus God sets a seal on the heart of every arrogant tyrant'.(35)
  36. And Pharaoh said, `O Haman, build for me a tower that I may reach the cords,(36)
  37. the cords of the heavens, and look upon Moses' God, for I think him a liar'. And thus the evil of his deed was adorned for Pharaoh, and he was barred from the way; but Pharaoh's guile was only to perish.(37)
  38. And he who believed said, `O my people, follow me, and I shall guide you to the way of rectitude.(38)
  39. O my people, this present life is only an enjoyment, and surely the Hereafter is the House of stability.(39)
  40. Whoso does an evil deed, he is not recompensed but with the like of it; and whoso, male or female, does a righteous deed, and he is a believer, those shall enter Paradise, wherein they shall be provided without reckoning.(40)
  41. And O my people, how is it with me, that I call you to salvation, and you call me to the Fire?(41)
  42. You call me to disbelieve in God, and to associate with Him that of which I have no knowledge, while I call you to the Mighty, the All-forgiving.(42)
  43. No doubt that what you call me to has no title to be called, in this world or in the Hereafter, and that our return is to God, and that the extravagant are the people of the Fire.(43)
  44. You will remember what I say to you, and I confide my affair to God; surely God sees His servants'.(44)
  45. Then God saved him from the evils of their devising, and there fell on Pharaoh's folk the evil punishment _(45)
  46. the Fire, to which they are presented morning and evening; and on the day the Hour comes: __ `Admit Pharaoh's folk into the most terrible punishment'.(46)
  47. And when they will dispute with one another in the Fire, the weak will say to those who showed arrogance, `we were your followers; will you now avail us against a part of the Fire?'(47)
  48. Those who showed arrogance will say, `we are all in it; God has passed judgement between (His) servants'.(48)
  49. And those in the Fire will say to the Keepers of Hell, `call on your Lord to lessen for us a day of the punishment.'(49)
  50. They will say, `but did not your Messengers bring you the Clear Signs?' They will say, `yes indeed'. They will say, `then call on; but the call of the unbelievers only goes astray'.(50)
  51. We shall surely help Our Messengers and the Believers in the present life, and on the day when the witnesses stand forth,(51)
  52. the day when their excuse shall not profit the wrong-doers, and they shall be cursed and shall have the evil home.(52)
  53. And We gave Moses the Guidance, and We made the Children of Israel heirs to the Book,(53)
  54. for a guidance and an admonition for men of understanding.(54)
  55. So be thou patient, surely God's promise is true; and ask forgiveness for thy mistake, and celebrate the praise of thy Lord at evening and dawn.(55)
  56. As for those who dispute concerning the Signs of God without any authority come to them, in their breasts is only feeling of greatness which they shall never attain; so seek thou refuge in God; surely He is the Hearing, the Seeing.(56)
  57. The creation of the heavens and the earth is greater (a feat) than the creation of mankind, but most men do not know.(57)
  58. And the blind and the seeing man are not equal, nor are the believers, who do righteous deeds, and the evil-doers; yet little heed you pay.(58)
  59. The Hour is surely coming, no doubt in it, though most men do not believe.(59)
  60. And your Lord says, `call upon Me, I will answer you; surely those who show arrogance against serving Me shall enter Hell in all lowliness'.(60)
  61. God is He who made for you the night that you may have rest in it, and the day to see; surely God is bountiful to mankind, though most men are not thankful.(61)
  62. That is God, your Lord, the Creator of everything; there is no god but He; how then are you perverted?(62)
  63. Thus are perverted those who deny the Signs of God.(63)
  64. God is He who made the earth a resting place for you and the heaven for an edifice, and He shaped you and made your shapes handsome, and provided you with good things. That is God, your Lord: so blessed be God, the Lord of the world.(64)
  65. He is the Living, there is no god but He, so call upon Him, making obedience sincerely His; praise be to God, the Lord of the world.(65)
  66. Say, `I am forbidden to serve those you call on, apart from God, since the clear Signs from my Lord have come to me; and I am commanded to surrender to the Lord of the world.(66)
  67. It is He who created you of dust, then of a sperm-drop, then of a blood-clot, then He brings you forth as a child, that you may then attain your full strength, then that you may become old men __ though some of you die before __ and that you may reach a stated term, haply you will understand.(67)
  68. It is He who gives life and makes to die; and when He decrees a thing, He only says to it, `Be', and it is.(68)
  69. Hast thou not seen those who dispute concerning the signs of God; how are they turned about?(69)
  70. Those who give lies to the Book and to that wherewith We sent Our Messengers; but they will soon know; __ (70)
  71. when the fetters and chains will be about their necks; they will be dragged(71)
  72. into the boiling water, and then, in the Fire they will be poured;(72)
  73. then it will be said to them, `where are those you took as associate-gods,(73)
  74. apart from God?' They will say, `they are lost to us; no, but we never called on anything before'.(74)
  75. Thus does God send astray the unbelievers. `That is because you rejoiced in the earth without right, and because you were exultant.(75)
  76. Enter the gates of Hell to dwell therein forever; and how evil is the resort of the arrogant!'(76)
  77. So, be thou patient; surely God's promise is true; whether We show thee a part of that We promise them, or We call thee to Us, to Us they shall be returned.(77)
  78. And We sent Messengers before thee, some of them We have related to thee, and some of them We have not related to thee. And it was not for a Messenger to bring a Sign, except by God's leave; and when God's command comes, it is decided on truth, and there the vain-doers are the losers.(78)
  79. God is He who made for you the cattle, so that you ride some of them and eat some;(79)
  80. and you have in them other uses, and through them you attain a need that is in your breasts, and upon them and upon the ships you are carried.(80)
  81. And He shows you His Signs; then which of God's Signs will you deny?(81)
  82. Have they not journeyed in the land and seen how was the end of those before them? They were more numerous and stronger in might and in leaving traces in the earth than these people, but what they earned did not avail them.(82)
  83. So when their Messengers came to them with the Clear Signs, they rejoiced in what knowledge they had, and what they mocked at encompassed upon them.(83)
  84. Then, when they saw Our might, they said, `we believe in God alone, and we disbelieve in that we were associating with Him.'(84)
  85. But their belief, when they saw Our might, could not profit them; it is God's tradition that has passed before among His servants; and there the unbelievers were losers.(85)
