Quran with English Translation

Surah Al Rome

English Translation by Abdullah Yusuf Ali

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful



Alif Lam Mim.


غُلِبَتِ ٱلرُّومُ 

The Roman Empire has been defeated --


فِىٓ أَدۡنَى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ

In a land close by;

وَهُم مِّنۢ بَعۡدِ غَلَبِهِمۡ سَيَغۡلِبُونَ

but they, (even) after (this) defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious --


فِى بِضۡعِ سِنِينَ‌ۗ

Within a few years.

لِلَّهِ ٱلۡأَمۡرُ مِن قَبۡلُ وَمِنۢ بَعۡدُ‌ۚ

With Allah is the Decision, in the Past and in the Future:

وَيَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ۬ يَفۡرَحُ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ 

on that Day shall the Believers rejoice --


بِنَصۡرِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

With the help of Allah.

يَنصُرُ مَن يَشَآءُ‌ۖ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ 

He helps whom He will, and He is Exalted in Might, Most Merciful.


وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

(It is) the promise of Allah.

لَا يُخۡلِفُ ٱللَّهُ وَعۡدَهُ ۥ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَڪۡثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ

Never does Allah depart from His promise: but most men understand not.


يَعۡلَمُونَ ظَـٰهِرً۬ا مِّنَ ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا وَهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ هُمۡ غَـٰفِلُونَ

They know but the outer (things) in the life of this world: but of the End of things they are heedless.


أَوَلَمۡ يَتَفَكَّرُواْ فِىٓ أَنفُسِہِم‌ۗ

Do they not reflect in their own minds?

مَّا خَلَقَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ وَمَا بَيۡنَہُمَآ إِلَّا بِٱلۡحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ۬ مُّسَمًّ۬ى‌ۗ

Not but for just ends and for a term appointed, did Allah create the heavens and the earth, and all between them:

وَإِنَّ كَثِيرً۬ا مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِ بِلِقَآىِٕ رَبِّهِمۡ لَكَـٰفِرُونَ 

yet are there truly many among men who deny the meeting with their Lord (at the Resurrection)!


أَوَلَمۡ يَسِيرُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ فَيَنظُرُواْ كَيۡفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِمۡ‌ۚ

Do they not travel through the earth, and see what was the End of those before them?

ڪَانُوٓاْ أَشَدَّ مِنۡہُمۡ قُوَّةً۬

They were superior to them in strength:

وَأَثَارُواْ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ وَعَمَرُوهَآ أَڪۡثَرَ مِمَّا عَمَرُوهَا

they tilled the soil and populated it in greater numbers than these have done:

وَجَآءَتۡهُمۡ رُسُلُهُم بِٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ‌ۖ

there came to them their apostles with Clear (Signs), (which they rejected, to their own destruction):

فَمَا كَانَ ٱللَّهُ لِيَظۡلِمَهُمۡ وَلَـٰكِن كَانُوٓاْ أَنفُسَہُمۡ يَظۡلِمُونَ 

it was not Allah Who wronged them but they wronged their own souls.


ثُمَّ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَسَـٰٓـُٔواْ ٱلسُّوٓأَىٰٓ

In the long run evil in the extreme will be the End of those who do evil;

أَن ڪَذَّبُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَكَانُواْ بِہَا يَسۡتَهۡزِءُونَ 

for that they rejected the Signs of Allah, and held them up to ridicule.


ٱللَّهُ يَبۡدَؤُاْ ٱلۡخَلۡقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُ ۥ ثُمَّ إِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُونَ 

It is Allah Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; then shall ye be brought back to Him.


وَيَوۡمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يُبۡلِسُ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمُونَ 

On the Day that the Hour will be established, the guilty will be struck dumb with despair.


وَلَمۡ يَكُن لَّهُم مِّن شُرَكَآٮِٕهِمۡ شُفَعَـٰٓؤُاْوَڪَانُواْ بِشُرَكَآٮِٕهِمۡ ڪَـٰفِرِينَ

No intercessor will they have among their "Partners," and they will (themselves) reject their "Partners."


وَيَوۡمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ۬ يَتَفَرَّقُونَ 

On the Day that the Hour will be established, -- that Day shall (all men) be sorted out.


فَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ فَهُمۡ فِى رَوۡضَةٍ۬ يُحۡبَرُونَ 

Then those who have believed and worked righteous deeds, shall be made happy in a Mead of Delight.


وَأَمَّا ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَكَذَّبُواْ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا وَلِقَآىِٕ ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ فِى ٱلۡعَذَابِ مُحۡضَرُونَ 

And those who have rejected Faith and falsely denied Our Signs and the meeting of the Hereafter, such shall be brought forth to Punishment.


فَسُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱللَّهِ حِينَ تُمۡسُونَ وَحِينَ تُصۡبِحُونَ 

So (give) glory to Allah, when ye reach eventide and when ye rise in the morning;


وَلَهُ ٱلۡحَمۡدُ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَعَشِيًّ۬ا وَحِينَ تُظۡهِرُونَ 

Yea, to Him be praise, in the heavens and on earth; and in the late afternoon and when the day begins to decline.


يُخۡرِجُ ٱلۡحَىَّ مِنَ ٱلۡمَيِّتِ وَيُخۡرِجُ ٱلۡمَيِّتَ مِنَ ٱلۡحَىِّ وَيُحۡىِ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ بَعۡدَ مَوۡتِہَا‌ۚ

It is He Who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living, and Who gives life to the earth after it is dead:

وَكَذَٲلِكَ تُخۡرَجُونَ 

and thus shall ye be brought out (from the dead).


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦۤ أَنۡ خَلَقَكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ۬ ثُمَّ إِذَآ أَنتُم بَشَرٌ۬ تَنتَشِرُونَ 

Among His Signs is this, that He created you from dust; and then, behold, ye are men scattered (far and wide)!


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦۤ أَنۡ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنۡ أَنفُسِكُمۡ أَزۡوَٲجً۬ا لِّتَسۡكُنُوٓاْ إِلَيۡهَا

And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquillity with them,

وَجَعَلَ بَيۡنَڪُم مَّوَدَّةً۬ وَرَحۡمَةً‌ۚ

and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts);

إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ خَلۡقُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَٱخۡتِلَـٰفُ أَلۡسِنَتِڪُمۡ وَأَلۡوَٲنِكُمۡ‌ۚ

And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colors:

إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّلۡعَـٰلِمِينَ 

verily in that are Signs for those who know.


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ مَنَامُكُم بِٱلَّيۡلِ وَٱلنَّہَارِ وَٱبۡتِغَآؤُكُم مِّن فَضۡلِهِۦۤ‌ۚ

And among His Signs is the sleep that ye take by night and by day, and the quest that ye (make for livelihood) out of His Bounty:

إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَسۡمَعُونَ 

verily in that are Signs for those who hearken.


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ يُرِيڪُمُ ٱلۡبَرۡقَ خَوۡفً۬ا وَطَمَعً۬ا

And among His Signs, He shows you the lightning, by way both of fear and of hope,

وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً۬ فَيُحۡىِۦ بِهِ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ بَعۡدَ مَوۡتِهَآ‌ۚ

and He sends down rain from the sky and with it gives life to the earth after it is dead:

إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يَعۡقِلُونَ 

verily in that are Signs for those who are wise.


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦۤ أَن تَقُومَ ٱلسَّمَآءُ وَٱلۡأَرۡضُ بِأَمۡرِهِۦ‌ۚ

And among His Signs is this, that heaven and earth stand by His Command:

ثُمَّ إِذَا دَعَاكُمۡ دَعۡوَةً۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَرۡضِ إِذَآ أَنتُمۡ تَخۡرُجُونَ 

then when He calls you, by a single call, from the earth, behold, ye (straightway) come forth.


وَلَهُ ۥ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۖ

To Him belongs every being that is in the heavens and on earth:

ڪُلٌّ۬ لَّهُ ۥ قَـٰنِتُونَ 

all are devoutly obedient to Him.


وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى يَبۡدَؤُاْ ٱلۡخَلۡقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُ ۥ وَهُوَ أَهۡوَنُ عَلَيۡهِ‌ۚ

It is He Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; and for Him it is most easy.

وَلَهُ ٱلۡمَثَلُ ٱلۡأَعۡلَىٰ فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ‌ۚ

To Him belongs the loftiest similitude (We can think of) in the heavens and the earth:

وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَكِيمُ 

for He is Exalted in Might, Full of Wisdom.


ضَرَبَ لَكُم مَّثَلاً۬ مِّنۡ أَنفُسِكُمۡ‌ۖ

He does propound to you a similitude from your own (experience):

هَل لَّكُم مِّن مَّا مَلَكَتۡ أَيۡمَـٰنُكُم مِّن شُرَڪَآءَ فِى مَا رَزَقۡنَـٰڪُمۡ فَأَنتُمۡ فِيهِ

do ye have partners among those whom your right hands possess, to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you?

سَوَآءٌ۬ تَخَافُونَهُمۡ كَخِيفَتِڪُمۡ أَنفُسَكُمۡ‌ۚ

Do ye fear them as ye fear each other?

ڪَذَٲلِكَ نُفَصِّلُ ٱلۡأَيَـٰتِ لِقَوۡمٍ۬ يَعۡقِلُونَ 

Thus do We explain the Signs in detail to a people that understand.


بَلِ ٱتَّبَعَ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوٓاْ أَهۡوَآءَهُم بِغَيۡرِ عِلۡمٍ۬‌ۖ

Nay, the wrongdoers (merely) fellow their own lusts, being devoid of knowledge.

فَمَن يَہۡدِى مَنۡ أَضَلَّ ٱللَّهُ‌ۖ

But who will guide those whom Allah leaves astray?

وَمَا لَهُم مِّن نَّـٰصِرِينَ 

To them there will be no helpers.


فَأَقِمۡ وَجۡهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفً۬ا‌ۚ

So set thou thy face steadily and truly to the Faith:

فِطۡرَتَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّتِى فَطَرَ ٱلنَّاسَ عَلَيۡہَا‌ۚ

(Establish) Allah's handiwork according to the pattern on which He has made mankind:

لَا تَبۡدِيلَ لِخَلۡقِ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ

no change (let there be) in the work (wrought) by Allah:

ذَٲلِكَ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلۡقَيِّمُ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَڪۡثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ 

that is the standard Religion: but most among mankind understand not.


مُنِيبِينَ إِلَيۡهِ وَٱتَّقُوهُ وَأَقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَلَا تَكُونُواْ مِنَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِڪِينَ 

Turn ye back in repentance to Him, and fear Him: establish regular prayers, and be not ye among those who join gods with Allah, --


مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ فَرَّقُواْ دِينَهُمۡ وَڪَانُواْ شِيَعً۬ا‌ۖ

Those who split up their Religion, and become (mere) Sects, --

كُلُّ حِزۡبِۭ بِمَا لَدَيۡہِمۡ فَرِحُونَ 

each party rejoicing in that which is with itself!


وَإِذَا مَسَّ ٱلنَّاسَ ضُرٌّ۬ دَعَوۡاْ رَبَّہُم مُّنِيبِينَ إِلَيۡهِ

When trouble touches men, they cry to their Lord, turning back to Him in repentance:

ثُمَّ إِذَآ أَذَاقَهُم مِّنۡهُ رَحۡمَةً إِذَا فَرِيقٌ۬ مِّنۡہُم بِرَبِّهِمۡ يُشۡرِكُونَ

but when He gives them a taste of Mercy as from Himself, behold, some of them pay part-worship to other gods besides their Lord. --


لِيَكۡفُرُواْ بِمَآ ءَاتَيۡنَـٰهُمۡ‌ۚ

(As if) to show their ingratitude for the (favors) We have bestowed on them!

فَتَمَتَّعُواْ فَسَوۡفَ تَعۡلَمُونَ 

Then enjoy (your brief day); but soon will ye know (your folly).


أَمۡ أَنزَلۡنَا عَلَيۡهِمۡ سُلۡطَـٰنً۬ا فَهُوَ يَتَكَلَّمُ بِمَا كَانُواْ بِهِۦ يُشۡرِكُونَ 

Or have We sent down authority to them, which points out to them the things to which they pay part-worship?


وَإِذَآ أَذَقۡنَا ٱلنَّاسَ رَحۡمَةً۬ فَرِحُواْ بِہَا‌ۖ

When We give men a taste of Mercy, they exult thereat:

وَإِن تُصِبۡهُمۡ سَيِّئَةُۢ بِمَا قَدَّمَتۡ أَيۡدِيہِمۡ إِذَا هُمۡ يَقۡنَطُونَ 

and when some evil afflicts them because of what their (own) hands have sent forth, behold, they are in despair!


أَوَلَمۡ يَرَوۡاْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَبۡسُطُ ٱلرِّزۡقَ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيَقۡدِرُ‌ۚ

See they not that Allah enlarges the provision and restricts it, to whomsoever He pleases?

إِنَّ فِى ذَٲلِكَ لَأَيَـٰتٍ۬ لِّقَوۡمٍ۬ يُؤۡمِنُونَ 

Verily in that are Signs for those who believe.


فَـَٔاتِ ذَا ٱلۡقُرۡبَىٰ حَقَّهُ ۥ وَٱلۡمِسۡكِينَ وَٱبۡنَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ‌ۚ

So give what is due to kindred, the needy, and the wayfarer.

ذَٲلِكَ خَيۡرٌ۬ لِّلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ وَجۡهَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ وَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُفۡلِحُونَ 

That is best for those who seek the Countenance, of Allah, and it is they who will prosper.


وَمَآ ءَاتَيۡتُم مِّن رِّبً۬ا لِّيَرۡبُوَاْ فِىٓ أَمۡوَٲلِ ٱلنَّاسِ فَلَا يَرۡبُواْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

That which ye lay out for increase through the property of (other) people, will have no increase with Allah:

وَمَآ ءَاتَيۡتُم مِّن زَكَوٰةٍ۬ تُرِيدُونَ وَجۡهَ ٱللَّهِ فَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡمُضۡعِفُونَ 

but that which ye lay out for charity, seeking the Countenance of Allah, (will increase): it is these who will get a recompense multiplied.


ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُمۡ ثُمَّ رَزَقَكُمۡ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُڪُمۡ ثُمَّ يُحۡيِيكُمۡ‌ۖ

It is Allah Who has created you: further, He has provided for your sustenance; then He will cause you to die; and again He will give you life.

هَلۡ مِن شُرَكَآٮِٕكُم مَّن يَفۡعَلُ مِن ذَٲلِكُم مِّن شَىۡءٍ۬‌ۚ

Are there any of your (false) "Partners" who can do any single one of these things?

سُبۡحَـٰنَهُ ۥ وَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ 

Glory to Him! and High is He above the partners they attribute (to Him)!


ظَهَرَ ٱلۡفَسَادُ فِى ٱلۡبَرِّ وَٱلۡبَحۡرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتۡ أَيۡدِى ٱلنَّاسِ

Mischief has appeared on land and sea because of (the meed) that the hands of men have earned,

لِيُذِيقَهُم بَعۡضَ ٱلَّذِى عَمِلُواْ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡجِعُونَ 

that (Allah) may give them a taste of some of their deeds: in order that they may turn back (from Evil).


قُلۡ سِيرُواْ فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ فَٱنظُرُواْ كَيۡفَ كَانَ عَـٰقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلُ‌ۚ

Say: "Travel through the earth and see what was the End of those before (you):

كَانَ أَڪۡثَرُهُم مُّشۡرِكِينَ 

most of them worshipped others besides Allah."


فَأَقِمۡ وَجۡهَكَ لِلدِّينِ ٱلۡقَيِّمِ مِن قَبۡلِ أَن يَأۡتِىَ يَوۡمٌ۬ لَّا مَرَدَّ لَهُ ۥ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۖ

But set thou thy face to the right Religion, before there come from Allah the Day which there is no chance of averting:

يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ۬ يَصَّدَّعُونَ 

on that Day shall men be divided (in two).


مَن كَفَرَ فَعَلَيۡهِ كُفۡرُهُ ۥ‌ۖ

Those who reject Faith will suffer from that rejection:

وَمَنۡ عَمِلَ صَـٰلِحً۬ا فَلِأَنفُسِہِمۡ يَمۡهَدُونَ 

and those who work righteousness will spread their couch (of repose) for themselves (in heaven):


لِيَجۡزِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ مِن فَضۡلِهِۦۤ‌ۚ

That He may reward those who believe and work righteous deeds, out of His Bounty:

إِنَّهُ ۥ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ 

for He loves not those who reject Faith.


وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦۤ أَن يُرۡسِلَ ٱلرِّيَاحَ مُبَشِّرَٲتٍ۬

Among His Signs is this, that He sends the Winds, as heralds of Glad Tidings,

وَلِيُذِيقَكُم مِّن رَّحۡمَتِهِۦ وَلِتَجۡرِىَ ٱلۡفُلۡكُ بِأَمۡرِهِۦ

giving you a taste of His (Grace and) Mercy, -- that the ships may sail (majestically) by His Command

وَلِتَبۡتَغُواْ مِن فَضۡلِهِۦ وَلَعَلَّكُمۡ تَشۡكُرُونَ 

and that ye may seek of His Bounty: in order that ye may be grateful.


وَلَقَدۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا مِن قَبۡلِكَ رُسُلاً إِلَىٰ قَوۡمِهِمۡ فَجَآءُوهُم بِٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ

We did indeed send, before thee, apostles to their (respective) peoples, and they came to them with Clear Signs:

فَٱنتَقَمۡنَا مِنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَجۡرَمُواْ‌ۖ

then, to those who transgressed, We meted out Retribution:

وَكَانَ حَقًّا عَلَيۡنَا نَصۡرُ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ 

and it was due from us to aid those who believed.


ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِى يُرۡسِلُ ٱلرِّيَـٰحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابً۬ا

It is Allah Who sends the Winds, and they raise the Clouds:

فَيَبۡسُطُهُ ۥ فِى ٱلسَّمَآءِ كَيۡفَ يَشَآءُ وَيَجۡعَلُهُ ۥ كِسَفً۬ا

then does He spread them in the sky as He wills, and break them into fragments,

فَتَرَى ٱلۡوَدۡقَ يَخۡرُجُ مِنۡ خِلَـٰلِهِۦ‌ۖ

until thou seest rain-drops issue from the midst thereof:

فَإِذَآ أَصَابَ بِهِۦ مَن يَشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِۦۤ إِذَا هُمۡ يَسۡتَبۡشِرُونَ 

then when He has made them reach such of his servants as He wills, behold, they do rejoice!


وَإِن كَانُواْ مِن قَبۡلِ أَن يُنَزَّلَ عَلَيۡهِم مِّن قَبۡلِهِۦ لَمُبۡلِسِينَ

Even though, before they received (the rain) -- just before this -- they were dumb with despair!


فَٱنظُرۡ إِلَىٰٓ ءَاثَـٰرِ رَحۡمَتِ ٱللَّهِ ڪَيۡفَ يُحۡىِ ٱلۡأَرۡضَ بَعۡدَ مَوۡتِہَآ‌ۚ

Then contemplate (O man!) the memorials of Allah's Mercy! -- how He gives life to the earth after its death:

إِنَّ ذَٲلِكَ لَمُحۡىِ ٱلۡمَوۡتَىٰ‌ۖ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ۬ قَدِيرٌ۬ 

verily the Same will give life to the men who are dead: for He has power over all things.


وَلَٮِٕنۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا رِيحً۬ا فَرَأَوۡهُ مُصۡفَرًّ۬ا لَّظَلُّواْ مِنۢ بَعۡدِهِۦ يَكۡفُرُونَ 

And if We (but) send a Wind from which they see (their tilth) turn yellow, behold, they become, thereafter, ungrateful (Unbelievers)!


فَإِنَّكَ لَا تُسۡمِعُ ٱلۡمَوۡتَىٰ وَلَا تُسۡمِعُ ٱلصُّمَّ ٱلدُّعَآءَ إِذَا وَلَّوۡاْ مُدۡبِرِينَ 

So verily thou canst not make the dead to hear, nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs and turn away.


وَمَآ أَنتَ بِهَـٰدِ ٱلۡعُمۡىِ عَن ضَلَـٰلَتِهِمۡ‌ۖ

Nor canst thou lead back the blind from their straying:

إِن تُسۡمِعُ إِلَّا مَن يُؤۡمِنُ بِـَٔايَـٰتِنَا فَهُم مُّسۡلِمُونَ 

only those wilt thou make to hear, who believe in Our Signs and submit (their wills in Islam).


ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَكُم مِّن ضَعۡفٍ۬ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ ضَعۡفٍ۬ قُوَّةً۬

It is Allah Who created you in a state of (helpless) weakness, then gave (you) strength after weakness,

ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنۢ بَعۡدِ قُوَّةٍ۬ ضَعۡفً۬ا وَشَيۡبَةً۬‌ۚ

then, after strength, give (you) weakness and a hoary head:

يَخۡلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ‌ۖ وَهُوَ ٱلۡعَلِيمُ ٱلۡقَدِيرُ 

He creates as He wills, and it is He Who has all knowledge and power.


وَيَوۡمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يُقۡسِمُ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمُونَ مَا لَبِثُواْ غَيۡرَ سَاعَةٍ۬‌ۚ

On the Day that the Hour (of reckoning) will be established, the transgressors will swear that they tarried not but an hour:

كَذَٲلِكَ كَانُواْ يُؤۡفَكُونَ 

thus were they used to being deluded!


وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ وَٱلۡإِيمَـٰنَ لَقَدۡ لَبِثۡتُمۡ فِى كِتَـٰبِ ٱللَّهِ إِلَىٰ يَوۡمِ ٱلۡبَعۡثِ‌ۖ

But those endued with knowledge and faith will say:

"Indeed ye did tarry, within Allah's Decree, to the Day of Resurrection,

فَهَـٰذَا يَوۡمُ ٱلۡبَعۡثِ وَلَـٰكِنَّڪُمۡ كُنتُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ 

and this is the Day of Resurrection: but ye -- ye were not aware!"


فَيَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ۬ لَّا يَنفَعُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ مَعۡذِرَتُهُمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يُسۡتَعۡتَبُونَ 

So on that Day no excuse of theirs will avail the Transgressors, nor will they be invited (then) to seek grace (by repentance).


وَلَقَدۡ ضَرَبۡنَا لِلنَّاسِ فِى هَـٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍ۬‌ۚ

Verily We have propounded for men, in this Qur'án, every kind of Parable:

وَلَٮِٕن جِئۡتَهُم بِـَٔايَةٍ۬ لَّيَقُولَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ ڪَفَرُوٓاْ إِنۡ أَنتُمۡ إِلَّا مُبۡطِلُونَ 

but if thou bring to them any Sign, the Unbelievers are sure to say, "Ye do nothing but talk vanities."


كَذَٲلِكَ يَطۡبَعُ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَ 

Thus does Allah seal up the hearts of those who understand not.


فَٱصۡبِرۡ إِنَّ وَعۡدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ۬‌ۖ

So patiently persevere: for verily the promise of Allah is true:

وَلَا يَسۡتَخِفَّنَّكَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَا يُوقِنُونَ 

nor let those shake thy firmness, who have (themselves) no certainty of faith.
