AL-HAJJ (22)

The Pilgrimage

Revealed at Medina,Verses: 78 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. O mankind, fear your Lord; surely the jolting of the Hour is a mighty thing.(1)
  2. On the day when you see it, every suckling female shall forget what she suckles, and every pregnant female shall deliver her burden, and thou shalt see men drunk, though they will not be drunk, but God's punishment is terrible. (2)
  3. And among men is he who disputes about God without any knowledge and follows every obstinate devil,(3)
  4. concerning whom it is written down that whoso takes him for a friend, he shall lead him astray and guide him to the punishment of the Blaze.(4)
  5. O mankind, if you are in doubt concerning the Uprising, then surely We created you of dust, then of a sperm-drop, then of a blood clot, then of soft tissue, formed and unformed __ this way We make the point clear to you. And We keep in the wombs what We will till a stated term, then We bring you forth as infants, then that you may attain your full strength; and some of you die and some of you are turned to the vilest age that, in spite of knowledge, they may know nothing. And thou seest the earth barren, then, when We send down water upon it, it quivers, and swells, and produces herbs of every joyous kind.(5)
  6. That is because God is the Truth, and that He brings the dead to life, and that He is powerful over everything,(6)
  7. and that the Hour is coming, no doubt in it, and that God shall raise up those that are in the graves.(7)
  8. And among men is he who disputes concerning God without any knowledge, or guidance, or an illuminating Book,(8)
  9. turning his side to lead astray from God's way; for him shall be disgrace in this world, and, on the Day of Resurrection, We shall let him taste punishment of the burning.(9)
  10. `That is for what thy hands have forwarded, and that God is not tyrant to His servants.'(10)
  11. And among men is he who serves God on the very edge, so that if good befalls him he is contented with it, and if a trial befalls him he turns about on his face; he loses this world and the Hereafter; and that is the manifest loss.(11)
  12. He calls, apart from God, on that which neither harms him nor profits him; that is the straying far away.(12)
  13. He calls on him whose harm is nearer than his profit; how evil is the friend, and how evil is the companion!(13)
  14. God shall admit those who believe and do righteous deeds into gardens underneath which rivers flow; God does what He desires.(14)
  15. If any thinks that God will not help him in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch up a rope to heaven, then let him cut it off and observe whether his guile does away what enrages him.(15)
  16. And like that We have sent it down as Clear Signs, and for that God guides whomso He desires.(16)
  17. The Believers, the Jews, the Sabaeans, the Christians, the Magians and the idolaters __ God will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection; God is witness over everything.(17)
  18. Hast thou not seen that to God prostrates whoso is in the heavens ad whoso is in the earth, and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the animals, and many of mankind; and many merit punishment; and whomso God humiliates there is none to honour him; God does what He will.(18)
  19. These are two adversaries who dispute concerning their Lord; as for the unbelievers, for them garments of Fire shall be cut; boiling water shall be poured over their heads,(19)
  20. whereby that which is in their bellies, and the skins shall melt;(20)
  21. and for them shall also be hooked rods of iron.(21)
  22. Whenever, in their anguish, they desire to go forth from it, they shall be returned to it, and: `Taste the punishment of the burring:'(22)
  23. Surely God will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they shall be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their dress there shall be of silk.(23)
  24. For they are guided to goodly speech, and they are guided to the path of the Praise-worthy.(24)
  25. Surely those who disbelieve, and bar from God's way and the Sacred Mosque, which We have appointed equal for all men, be he a dweller therein or the countryman; and whoso desires to violate it wrongfully, We shall let him taste a painful punishment.(25)
  26. And when We settled for Abraham the site of the House: `do not associate anything with Me, and purify My House for those that go about it, and those that stand (in submission), and those that bow and prostrate themselves.(26)
  27. And proclaim among men the Pilgrimage, they shall come to thee on foot and upon every lean mount, coming from every deep ravine,(27)
  28. that they may witness their profits and mention God's Name during the known days over the beasts of cattle that He has provided them: `so eat thereof and feed the wretched poor.'(28)
  29. Then let them finish with their dirt, and fulfil their vows, and go about the Ancient House.(29)
  30. All that; and whoso venerates the sacred things of God, it is good for him with his Lord. And cattle are made lawful to you except those which have been recited to you, so avoid the abomination of the idols and avoid speaking of falsehood,(30)
  31. being all-devoted to God, not associating anything with Him; and whoso associates anything with God, it is as if he has fallen from heaven, and the birds snatch him away, or the wind carries him to a far away place.(31)
  32. All that; and whoso venerates God's waymarks, it is surely an act of piety of the hearts.(32)
  33. In them are profits for you till a stated term, then their place of sacrifice is by the Ancient House.(33)
  34. And We have appointed for every community a ritual, that they may mention Gods' Name over the beasts of cattle that He has provided them; and your God is One God, so to Him you surrender; and give thou good news to the humble,(34)
  35. those whose hearts, when God is mentioned, quake and who show patience at what befalls them, and who establish the Prayer and expend of what We have provided them.(35)
  36. And the camels of sacrifice, We have appointed them for you as God's way-marks; therein is good for you, so putting them in rows, mention God's Name over them, and when they fall down on flanks, eat of them, and feed the contented and the beggar; like that We have subjected them to you that you may give thanks.(36)
  37. Their flesh shall not reach God, nor their blood, but your piety reaches Him; thus He has subjected them to you that you may glorify God for that He has guided you; and give thou good news to the good-doers.(37)
  38. Surely God will defend the Believers; surely God does not like any ungrateful traitor. (38)
  39. Permission is given to those who are being fought, for they have been wronged; and surely God is powerful to help them;(39)
  40. who have been expelled from their homes, without right, except that they say, `our Lord is God.' And had God not repelled people some by others, there had been demolished monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, wherein God's Name is mentioned much; and God will surely help him who helps Him; God is Surely Strong and Mighty.(40)
  41. Those, who, if We give them authority in the land, will establish the Prayer, and pay the Due-alms, and bid the desirable and forbid the dejected; and with God rests the end-result of the affairs.(41)
  42. And if they give lies to thee, then surely, before them, cried lies the people of Noah, and Ad and Thamood,(42)
  43. and the people of Abraham and the people of Lot,(43)
  44. and the men of Midian; and Moses was also given lies to; yet I respited the unbelievers, then I seized them; then how was My denial!(44)
  45. And how many a city We have destroyed, and it was wrong-doer, and now it is fallen down on its roofs; and how many a deserted well and a tall palace!(45)
  46. Have they not journeyed in the land that they could have hearts to understand with, or ears to hear with? Yet it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts that are in the breasts.(46)
  47. And they ask thee to hasten the punishment, but God will not fail His promise. However, a day with thy Lord is as a thousand years of your counting.(47)
  48. And how many a city that was wrong-doing I respited; then I seized it, and to Me is the destination.(48)
  49. Say, `O men, I am only a plain warner to you;(49)
  50. so those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them shall be forgiveness and a generous provision(50)
  51. And those who strive against Our Signs to frustrate Us, they shall be the people of Hell.'(51)
  52. And We did not send any Messenger or Prophet before thee, but when he longed for something, the Devil cast into his longings; but God annuls what the Devil casts, then God confirms His Signs __ and God is Knowing, Wise __(52)
  53. that He may make what the Devil casts a trial for those who have sickness in their hearts and their hearts are hardened; and surely the wrong-doers are far away in opposition;(53)
  54. and that those who have been given knowledge may know that it is the truth from thy Lord and believe in it, and their hearts be humbled to Him; and God is surely a guide of the Believers to a staight path.(54)
  55. But the unbelievers will not cease to doubt it, until the Hour comes on them suddenly, or the punishment of a barren day comes upon them.(55)
  56. The sovereignty on that day will belong to God; He will judge between them; then those who believe and do righteous deeds shall be in the gardens of bliss.(56)
  57. And those who disbelieve and give lies to Our signs, they shall get a humiliating punishment.(57)
  58. And those who emigrated in the way of God, then were killed or died, God will surely provide them with a good provision; and God is surely the best of providers.(58)
  59. He shall make them enter by an entrance with which they will be pleased; and God is surely Knowing, Clement.(59)
  60. All that; and whoso punishes in the manner he was punished, then he is oppressed, God will surely help him; God is surely Pardoning, Forgiving.(60)
  61. That is because God makes the night to enter into the day, and makes the day to enter into the night, and because God is Hearing, Seeing.(61)
  62. That is because God is the Truth, and because what they call upon, apart from Him, is the false, and because God is the High, the Great.(62)
  63. Hast thou not seen that God sends down water from the heaven, and the earth becomes green? Surely God is Gracious, Aware.(63)
  64. To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; and surely God is the All-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.(64)
  65. Hast thou not seen that God has subjected to you all that is in the earth, and the ships sail in the sea by His command; and He holds the heaven lest it should fall on the earth except by His permission; surely God is Kind and Merciful to men.(65)
  66. And it is He who gave you life, then He will make you dead, then He will give you life; man is surely ungrateful.(66)
  67. For every community We have appointed a ritual which they observe; so let them not wrangle with thee in the matter, and call thou unto thy Lord; surely thou art upon a straight guidance.(67)
  68. And if they contend with thee, say, `God very well knows what you do.'(68)
  69. God will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection in that you differed.(69)
  70. Dost thou not know that God knows whatever is in the heaven and the earth? That is in a Book; that is easy for God.(70)
  71. But they serve, apart from God, that for which God has not sent down any authority, and of which they have no knowledge; and the wrong-doers will have no helper.(71)
  72. And when Our Clear Signs are recited to them, thou recognisest disgust on the faces of the unbelievers; they would almost rush upon those who recite Our Signs to them. Say, `shall I tell you worse than that __ the Fire; God has promised it to the unbelievers; and how evil is the destination!'(72)
  73. O men, a similitude is described, listen to it; those whom you call upon, apart from God, shall never create a fly, even though they gathered together for it; and if a fly should snatch away anything from them; they would not rescue it from it; how weak are the seeker and the sought!(73)
  74. They have not estimated God with His true estimation; God is surely Strong and Mighty.(74)
  75. God chooses Messengers out of angels and out of men; God is Hearing, Seeing.(75)
  76. He knows what is before them, and what is after them; and to God are all matters returned.(76)
  77. O Believers, bow down, prostrate yourselves, serve your Lord, and do good that you may prosper.(77)
  78. And struggle for God as struggling is His due; He has chosen you and has not made for you any hardship in the Religion; it is the creed of your father, Abraham; He named you Obedient (Muslims), aforetime and in this, that the Messenger be a witnesses over you, and you be witnesses over mankind; so establish the Prayer, pay the Due-alms, and hold fast to God; He is your Protector; how excellent a Protector, and how excellent a Helper!(78)
