1. The Qur’an

Read in …      HINDI        URDU

           Allah says: The Qur’an is a complete book. In which there is an answer to every question related to the world and the afterlife. It guides those whose hearts are soft, those who seek the truth, to stay away from sinful activities. And those who think.

          This Qur’an is a book to judge right and wrong.  And it is full of mystery. Some of which have been solved by scientists with the help of Allah. As a result of which we consider ourselves to be developed and proud.

          Undoubtedly, necessity gives rise to the imagination of invention. And imagination provides the vision of invention. But the Qur’an provides this vision before the needs [i.e 1500 years ago]. By the will of God! I will try to collect these concepts in a future post called Science.

         This great Qur’an is preserved in the main book of Allah “Louh-E Mahfuz”. The one who is supreme and holy.


رَّبِّ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ مِنۡ ھَمَزٰتِ الشَّیٰطِیۡنِ ۙ وَ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ رَبِّ اَنۡ یَّحۡضُرُوۡن ؕ۔

بِسۡمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِۙ۔ 

The Qur’an

ذٰ لِكَ الۡڪِتٰبُ لَا رَيۡبَ ۚ فِيۡهِ ۚ هُدًى لِّلۡمُتَّقِيۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾  الَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡغَيۡبِ وَ يُقِيۡمُوۡنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنٰهُمۡ يُنۡفِقُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۳﴾  وَالَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِمَۤا اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ وَمَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ مِنۡ قَبۡلِكَۚ وَبِالۡاٰخِرَةِ هُمۡ يُوۡقِنُوۡنَؕ‏ ﴿۴﴾  اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ عَلٰى هُدًى مِّنۡ رَّبِّهِمۡ‌  وَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ الۡمُفۡلِحُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۵﴾۔


This is the Book (Qur’an) about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those-

  • Who fear Allah, and believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
  • And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith].

Those are under [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are successful. “2-5”


تَنۡزِيۡلٌ مِّنَ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۲﴾  كِتٰبٌ فُصِّلَتۡ اٰيٰتُهٗ قُرۡاٰنًا عَرَبِيًّا لِّقَوۡمٍ يَّعۡلَمُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۳﴾  بَشِيۡرًا وَّنَذِيۡرًا‌ ۚ فَاَعۡرَضَ اَكۡثَرُهُمۡ فَهُمۡ لَا يَسۡمَعُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۴﴾۔


         [This is] a revelation from the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful -2” A Book whose verses have been detailed, an Arabic Qur’an for a people who know,3” As a giver of good tidings and a warner; but most of them turn away, so they do not hear.4”


الٓرٰ‌ ࣞ  كِتٰبٌ اُحۡكِمَتۡ اٰيٰـتُهٗ ثُمَّ فُصِّلَتۡ مِنۡ لَّدُنۡ حَكِيۡمٍ خَبِيۡرٍۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾  اَلَّا تَعۡبُدُوۡۤا اِلَّا اللّٰهَ‌ ؕ اِنَّنِىۡ لَـكُمۡ مِّنۡهُ نَذِيۡرٌ وَّبَشِيۡرٌ ۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾  وَّاَنِ اسۡتَغۡفِرُوۡا رَبَّكُمۡ ثُمَّ تُوۡبُوۡۤا اِلَيۡهِ يُمَتِّعۡكُمۡ مَّتَاعًا حَسَنًا اِلٰٓى اَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَ يُؤۡتِ كُلَّ ذِىۡ فَضۡلٍ فَضۡلَهٗ ‌ؕ وَاِنۡ تَوَلَّوۡا فَاِنِّىۡۤ اَخَافُ عَلَيۡكُمۡ عَذَابَ يَوۡمٍ كَبِيۡرٍ﴿۳﴾۔


          Alif-Lam-Ra. (This is) a Book, the Verses whereof are perfected (in every sphere of knowledge, etc.), and then explained in detail by One (Allah), Who is All-Wise and Well-Acquainted (with all things).  (Saying) worship none but Allah. Verily, I (Muhammad ﷺ) am unto you from Him a warner and a bringer of glad tidings. 

        And (commanding you): “Seek the forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him in repentance, that He may grant you good enjoyment, for a term appointed, and bestow His abounding Grace to every owner of grace (i.e., the one who helps and serves needy and deserving, physically and with his wealth, and even with good words). But if you turn away, then I fear for you the torment of a Great Day (i.e., the Day of Resurrection).1-3″


اَفَمَنۡ يَّعۡلَمُ اَنَّمَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ الۡحَـقُّ كَمَنۡ هُوَ اَعۡمٰىؕ اِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ اُولُوا الۡاَلۡبَابِۙ‏ ﴿۱۹﴾۔


          Then is it he who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? They will only be reminded who are people of understanding। (19)


The Qur’an was revealed in Laylatul-Qadr.

وَالۡكِتٰبِ الۡمُبِيۡنِ ۙ ﴿۲﴾  اِنَّاۤ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ فِىۡ لَيۡلَةٍ مُّبٰـرَكَةٍ‌ اِنَّا كُنَّا مُنۡذِرِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۳﴾  فِيۡهَا يُفۡرَقُ كُلُّ اَمۡرٍ حَكِيۡمٍ ۙ‏ ﴿۴﴾  اَمۡرًا مِّنۡ عِنۡدِنَا‌ؕ اِنَّا كُنَّا مُرۡسِلِيۡنَ ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۵﴾  رَحۡمَةً مِّنۡ رَّبِّكَ‌ؕ اِنَّهٗ هُوَ السَّمِيۡعُ الۡعَلِيۡمُ ۙ‏ ﴿۶﴾۔


          By the clear Book, (2) Indeed, we sent it down during a blessed night. Indeed, we were to warn [mankind]. (3) On that night every precise matter is made distinct – (4) [Every] matter [proceeding] from Us. Indeed, we were to send [a messenger] (5) As mercy from your Lord. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Knowing. (6)


اِنَّاۤ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ فِىۡ لَيۡلَةِ الۡقَدۡر ِۚ‏ (۱)  وَمَاۤ اَدۡرٰٮكَ مَا لَيۡلَةُ الۡقَدۡرِؕ‏ (۲)  لَيۡلَةُ الۡقَدۡرِ ۙ خَيۡرٌ مِّنۡ اَلۡفِ شَهۡرٍ ؕ‏ (۳)  تَنَزَّلُ الۡمَلٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَالرُّوۡحُ فِيۡهَا بِاِذۡنِ رَبِّهِمۡ‌ۚ مِّنۡ كُلِّ اَمۡرٍ ۙ‏ (۴)  سَلٰمٌ ࣞ هِىَ حَتّٰى مَطۡلَعِ الۡفَجۡرِ‏ (۵) ۔


           Verily! We have sent it (this Qur’an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) (1) And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? (2) The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e., worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months). (3) Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees, (4) Peace! (All that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn. (5)


The Qur’an is preserved in the Luh-E- Mahfuz (The divine book).

بَلۡ هُوَ قُرۡاٰنٌ مَّجِيۡدٌ ۙ‏ ﴿۲۱﴾  فِىۡ لَوۡحٍ مَّحۡفُوۡظٍ ﴿۲۲﴾۔


          Nay! This is a Glorious Qur’an, 21. (Inscribed) in Al-Lauh Mahfuz (The Preserved Tablet)! 22.


 فَلَاۤ اُقۡسِمُ بِمَوٰقِعِ النُّجُوۡمِۙ‏‏ ﴿۷۵﴾    وَاِنَّهٗ لَقَسَمٌ لَّوۡ تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ عَظِيۡمٌۙ‏ ﴿۷۶﴾  اِنَّهٗ لَـقُرۡاٰنٌ كَرِيۡمٌۙ‏ (۷۷)  فِىۡ كِتٰبٍ مَّكۡنُوۡنٍۙ‏ ﴿۷۸﴾    لَّا يَمَسُّهٗۤ اِلَّا الۡمُطَهَّرُوۡنَؕ‏ ﴿۷۹﴾    تَنۡزِيۡلٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّ الۡعٰلَمِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۸۰﴾۔  


        So, I swear by Mawaqi (setting or the mansions, etc.) of the stars (they traverse). And verily, that is indeed a great oath, if you but know. That (this) is indeed an honourable recital (the Noble Qur’an). In a Book well-guarded (with Allah in heaven i.e., Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz). Which (that Book with Allah) no can touch but the purified (i.e., the angels). A Revelation (this Qur’an) from the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (75-80)


كَلَّاۤ اِنَّهَا تَذۡكِرَةٌ ۚ‏ ﴿۱۱﴾  فَمَنۡ شَآءَ ذَكَرَهٗ‌ۘ‏ ﴿۱۲﴾  فِىۡ صُحُفٍ مُّكَرَّمَةٍۙ‏ ﴿۱۳﴾ مَّرۡفُوۡعَةٍ مُّطَهَّرَةٍ ۭۙ‏ ﴿۱۴﴾  بِاَيۡدِىۡ سَفَرَةٍۙ‏ ﴿۱۵﴾  كِرَامٍۢ بَرَرَةٍؕ‏ ﴿۱۶﴾۔


         Nay, (do not do like this), indeed it (these Verses of this Qur’an) are an admonition, so whoever wills, let him pay attention to it. (It is) in Records held (greatly) in honour (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz). Exalted (in dignity), purified, In the hands of scribes (angels). Honourable and obedient. (11-16).


Influence of the Qur’an and the goal.

اِنَّا عَرَضۡنَا الۡاَمَانَةَ عَلَى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضِ وَالۡجِبَالِ فَاَبَيۡنَ اَنۡ يَّحۡمِلۡنَهَا وَاَشۡفَقۡنَ مِنۡهَا وَ حَمَلَهَا الۡاِنۡسَانُ ؕ  اِنَّهٗ كَانَ ظَلُوۡمًا جَهُوۡلًا ۙ‏ ﴿۷۲﴾  لِّيُعَذِّبَ اللّٰهُ الۡمُنٰفِقِيۡنَ وَالۡمُنٰفِقٰتِ وَالۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ وَالۡمُشۡرِكٰتِ وَيَتُوۡبَ اللّٰهُ عَلَى الۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ وَالۡمُؤۡمِنٰتِؕ وَكَانَ اللّٰهُ غَفُوۡرًا رَّحِيۡمًا ﴿۷۳﴾۔


            Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant. (72) [It was] so that Allah may punish the hypocrite men and hypocrite women and the men and women who associate others with Him, and that Allah may accept repentance from the believing men and believing women. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. (73)


لَوۡ اَنۡزَلۡنَا هٰذَا الۡقُرۡاٰنَ عَلٰى جَبَلٍ لَّرَاَيۡتَهٗ خَاشِعًا مُّتَصَدِّعًا مِّنۡ خَشۡيَةِ اللّٰهِ‌ؕ وَتِلۡكَ الۡاَمۡثَالُ نَضۡرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَفَكَّرُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۲۱﴾۔


        Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rending asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect.21″


The Qur’an is a book conveyed by Gabriel.

فَلَاۤ اُقۡسِمُ بِالۡخُنَّسِۙ‏ ﴿۱۵﴾  الۡجَوَارِ الۡكُنَّسِۙ‏ ﴿۱۶﴾  وَالَّيۡلِ اِذَا عَسۡعَسَۙ‏ ﴿۱۷﴾  وَالصُّبۡحِ اِذَا تَنَفَّسَۙ‏ ﴿۱۸﴾  اِنَّهٗ لَقَوۡلُ رَسُوۡلٍ كَرِيۡمٍۙ‏ ﴿۱۹﴾  ذِىۡ قُوَّةٍ عِنۡدَ ذِى الۡعَرۡشِ مَكِيۡنٍۙ‏ ﴿۲۰﴾  مُّطَاعٍ ثَمَّ اَمِيۡنٍؕ‏ ﴿۲۱﴾  وَ مَا صَاحِبُكُمۡ بِمَجۡنُوۡنٍ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۲۲﴾  وَلَقَدۡ رَاٰهُ بِالۡاُفُقِ الۡمُبِيۡنِ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۲۳﴾  وَمَا هُوَ عَلَى الۡغَيۡبِ بِضَنِيۡنٍ‌ۚ‏ ﴿۲۴﴾  وَمَا هُوَ بِقَوۡلِ شَيۡطٰنٍ رَّجِيۡمٍۙ‏ ﴿۲۵﴾  فَاَيۡنَ تَذۡهَبُوۡنَؕ‏ ﴿۲۶﴾  اِنۡ هُوَ اِلَّا ذِكۡرٌ لِّلۡعٰلَمِيۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۲۷﴾  لِمَنۡ شَآءَ مِنۡكُمۡ اَنۡ يَّسۡتَقِيۡمَؕ‏ ﴿۲۸﴾۔


          So, I swear by the retreating stars – Those that run [their courses] and disappear – Those that run [their courses] and disappear – And by the dawn when it breathes. [That] indeed, the Qur’an is a word [conveyed by] a noble messenger. [Who is] possessed of power and with the Owner of the Throne, secure [in position], Obeyed there [in the heavens] and trustworthy. And your companion is not [at all] mad.

         And he has already seen Gabriel on the clear horizon. And Muhammad is not a withholder of [knowledge of] the unseen. And the Qur’an is not the word of a devil, expelled [from the heavens]. So where are you going? It is not except a reminder to the world for whoever wants among you to take the right course. 15-28”


فَلَاۤ اُقۡسِمُ بِمَا تُبۡصِرُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۳۸﴾  وَمَا لَا تُبۡصِرُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۳۹﴾  اِنَّهٗ لَقَوۡلُ رَسُوۡلٍ كَرِيۡمٍۚ ۙ‏ ﴿۴۰﴾  وَّمَا هُوَ بِقَوۡلِ شَاعِرٍ‌ؕ قَلِيۡلًا مَّا تُؤۡمِنُوۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۴۱﴾  وَلَا بِقَوۡلِ كَاهِنٍ‌ؕ قَلِيۡلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُوۡنَؕ‏ ﴿۴۲﴾  تَنۡزِيۡلٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّ الۡعٰلَمِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۴۳﴾  وَلَوۡ تَقَوَّلَ عَلَيۡنَا بَعۡضَ الۡاَقَاوِيۡلِۙ‏ ﴿۴۴﴾  لَاَخَذۡنَا مِنۡهُ بِالۡيَمِيۡنِۙ‏ ﴿۴۵﴾  ثُمَّ لَقَطَعۡنَا مِنۡهُ الۡوَتِيۡنَ  ۖ‏ ﴿۴۶﴾  فَمَا مِنۡكُمۡ مِّنۡ اَحَدٍ عَنۡهُ حَاجِزِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۴۷﴾  وَاِنَّهٗ لَتَذۡكِرَةٌ لِّلۡمُتَّقِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۴۸﴾۔


          So, I swear by what you see and what you do not see [That] indeed, the Qur’an is the word of a noble Messenger. And it is not the word of a poet; little do you believe. Nor the word of a soothsayer; little do you remember. [It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds. And if Muhammad had made up about Us some [false] sayings, we would have seized him by the right hand; Then We would have cut from him the aorta. And there is none of you who could prevent [Us] from him. And indeed, the Qur’an is a reminder for the righteous. 38-48”


وَاِنَّهٗ لَـتَنۡزِيۡلُ رَبِّ الۡعٰلَمِيۡنَؕ‏ ﴿۱۹۲﴾  نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوۡحُ الۡاَمِيۡنُۙ‏ ﴿۱۹۳﴾ عَلٰى قَلۡبِكَ لِتَكُوۡنَ مِنَ الۡمُنۡذِرِيۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۱۹۴﴾  بِلِسَانٍ عَرَبِىٍّ مُّبِيۡنٍؕ‏ ﴿۱۹۵﴾   وَاِنَّهٗ لَفِىۡ زُبُرِ الۡاَوَّلِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۹۶﴾۔


            And truly, this (the Qur’an) is a revelation from the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists), Which the trustworthy Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] has brought down; Upon your heart (O Muhammad ﷺ) that you may be (one) of the warners, In the plain Arabic language. And verily, it (the Qur’an, and its revelation to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ) is (announced) in the Scriptures [i.e., the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] of former people. ‘192-196’


The Qur’an is not established simultaneously.

وَقَالَ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا لَوۡلَا نُزِّلَ عَلَيۡهِ الۡـقُرۡاٰنُ جُمۡلَةً وَّاحِدَةً‌  ‌ۚ كَذٰلِكَ ‌ۚ لِنُثَبِّتَ بِهٖ فُـؤَادَكَ‌ وَرَتَّلۡنٰهُ تَرۡتِيۡلًا‏ ﴿۳۲﴾  وَلَا يَاۡتُوۡنَكَ بِمَثَلٍ اِلَّا جِئۡنٰكَ بِالۡحَـقِّ وَاَحۡسَنَ تَفۡسِيۡرًا ؕ‏ ﴿۳۳﴾۔


         And those who disbelieve say, “Why was the Qur’an not revealed to him all at once?” Thus [it is] that We may strengthen thereby your heart. And We have spaced it distinctly.32” And they do not come to you with an argument except that We bring you the truth and the best explanation.33”


The Qur’an is education for the whole world.

وَمَا هُوَ اِلَّا ذِكۡرٌ لِّلۡعٰلَمِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۵۲﴾۔


         But it is nothing else than a Reminder to all the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). 52.


وَهٰذَا كِتٰبٌ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ مُبٰرَكٌ مُّصَدِّقُ الَّذِىۡ بَيۡنَ يَدَيۡهِ وَلِتُنۡذِرَ اُمَّ الۡقُرٰى وَمَنۡ حَوۡلَهَا‌ ؕ وَالَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡاٰخِرَةِ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِهٖ‌ وَهُمۡ عَلٰى صَلَاتِهِمۡ يُحَافِظُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۹۲﴾۔


         And this (the Qur’an) is a blessed Book which We have sent down, confirming (the revelations) which came before it, so that you may warn the mother of Towns (i.e., Makkah) and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in (the Qur’an), and they are constant in guarding their Salat (prayers). 92.


 قُلۡ اَىُّ شَىۡءٍ اَكۡبَرُ شَهَادَةً ؕ  قُلِ اللّٰهُ ࣞ  شَهِيۡدٌ ۢ بَيۡنِىۡ وَبَيۡنَكُمۡ‌ ۚ وَاُوۡحِىَ اِلَىَّ هٰذَا الۡـقُرۡاٰنُ لِاُنۡذِرَكُمۡ بِهٖ وَمَنۡۢ بَلَغَ‌ ؕ ﴿۱۹﴾۔


        Say, [O Muhammad ﷺ] “What thing is greatest in testimony?” Say, ” Allah is witness between me and you. And this Qur’an was revealed to me that I may warn you thereby and whomever it reaches. 19.


The Qur’an is the decisive book of Allah.

وَالسَّمَآءِ ذَاتِ الرَّجۡعِۙ‏ ﴿۱۱﴾  وَالۡاَرۡضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدۡعِۙ‏ ﴿۱۲﴾   اِنَّهٗ لَقَوۡلٌ فَصۡلٌۙ‏ ﴿۱۳﴾  وَّمَا هُوَ بِالۡهَزۡلِؕ‏ ﴿۱۴﴾۔


              By the sky (having rain clouds) which gives rain, again and again. And the earth which splits (with the growth of trees and plants), Verily! This (the Qur’an) is the Word that separates (the truth from falsehood, and commands strict legal laws for mankind to cut the roots of evil). And it is not a thing for amusement. ’11-14’


حٰمٓ‌ ۚ‏ ﴿۱﴾  تَنۡزِيۡلُ الۡكِتٰبِ مِنَ اللّٰهِ الۡعَزِيۡزِ الۡعَلِيۡمِۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾  غَافِرِ الذَّنۡۢبِ وَقَابِلِ التَّوۡبِ شَدِيۡدِ الۡعِقَابِ ذِى الطَّوۡلِؕ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَؕ اِلَيۡهِ الۡمَصِيۡرُ‏ ﴿۳﴾  مَا يُجَادِلُ فِىۡۤ اٰيٰتِ اللّٰهِ اِلَّا الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا فَلَا يَغۡرُرۡكَ تَقَلُّبُهُمۡ فِى الۡبِلَادِ‏ ﴿۴﴾۔


        Ha-Mim. The revelation of the Book (this Qur’an) is from Allah the All-Mighty, the All-Knower. The Forgiver of sin, the Acceptor of repentance, the Severe in punishment, the Bestower (of favours), La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), to Him is the final return. None disputes in the Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah but those who disbelieve. So let not their ability of going about here and there through the land (for their purposes) deceive you [O Muhammad ﷺ, their ultimate end will be the Fire of Hell]!’1-4’.


 اِلَّا تَذۡكِرَةً لِّمَنۡ يَّخۡشٰى ۙ‏ ﴿۳﴾  تَنۡزِيۡلًا مِّمَّنۡ خَلَقَ الۡاَرۡضَ وَالسَّمٰوٰتِ الۡعُلَى ؕ‏ ﴿۴﴾  اَلرَّحۡمٰنُ عَلَى الۡعَرۡشِ اسۡتَوٰى‏ ﴿۵﴾۔


         [The Qur’an] only as a Reminder to those who fear (Allah). A revelation from Him (Allah) Who has created the earth and high heavens. The Most Merciful [who is] above the Throne established.


وَيَرَى الَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوا الۡعِلۡمَ الَّذِىۡۤ اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ هُوَ الۡحَـقَّ ۙ وَيَهۡدِىۡۤ اِلٰى صِرَاطِ الۡعَزِيۡزِ الۡحَمِيۡدِ‏ ﴿۶﴾۔


        And those who have been given knowledge see that what is revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, and it guides to the path of the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy.06”


اِنَّ هٰذِهٖ تَذۡكِرَةٌ ‌ ۚ فَمَنۡ شَآءَ اتَّخَذَ اِلٰى رَۖبِّهٖ سَبِيۡلًا ﴿۱۹﴾۔


         Verily, this is an admonition, therefore whosoever will, let him take a Path to His Lord!19″


There is no other copy like the Qur’an.

قُلْ لَّٮِٕنِ اجۡتَمَعَتِ الۡاِنۡسُ وَالۡجِنُّ عَلٰٓى اَنۡ يَّاۡتُوۡا بِمِثۡلِ هٰذَا الۡقُرۡاٰنِ لَا يَاۡتُوۡنَ بِمِثۡلِهٖ وَلَوۡ كَانَ بَعۡضُهُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ ظَهِيۡرًا‏ ﴿۸۸﴾  وَلَقَدۡ صَرَّفۡنَا لِلنَّاسِ فِىۡ هٰذَا الۡقُرۡاٰنِ مِنۡ كُلِّ مَثَلٍ ؗ فَاَبٰٓى اَكۡثَرُ النَّاسِ اِلَّا كُفُوۡرًا‏ ﴿۸۹﴾۔


         Say: “If the mankind and the jinns were together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another.” 88. And indeed, we have fully explained to mankind, in this Qur’an, every kind of similitude, but most mankind refuse (the truth and accept nothing) but disbelief. 89.


The Qur’an is for the living.

وَمَا عَلَّمۡنٰهُ الشِّعۡرَ وَمَا يَنۡۢبَغِىۡ لَهٗؕ اِنۡ هُوَ اِلَّا ذِكۡرٌ وَّقُرۡاٰنٌ مُّبِيۡنٌۙ‏ ﴿۶۹﴾   لِّيُنۡذِرَ مَنۡ كَانَ حَيًّا وَّيَحِقَّ الۡقَوۡلُ عَلَى الۡكٰفِرِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۷۰﴾۔


         And We did not give Prophet Muhammad, knowledge of poetry, nor is it befitting for him. It is not but a message and a clear Qur’an.69” To warn whoever is alive and justify the word against the disbelievers.70”


The education of the Qur’an.

يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا كُوۡنُوۡا قَوَّا امِيۡنَ لِلّٰهِ شُهَدَآءَ بِالۡقِسۡطِ‌ ؗ وَلَا يَجۡرِمَنَّكُمۡ شَنَاٰنُ قَوۡمٍ عَلٰٓى اَ لَّا تَعۡدِلُوۡا‌ ؕ اِعۡدِلُوۡا  ࣞ هُوَ اَقۡرَبُ لِلتَّقۡوٰى‌ ؗ وَاتَّقُوا اللّٰهَ‌ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ خَبِيۡرٌۢ بِمَا تَعۡمَلُوۡنَ‏ (۸) وَعَدَ اللّٰهُ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ‌ ۙ لَهُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَةٌ وَّاَجۡرٌ عَظِيۡمٌ‏ ﴿۹﴾۔


         O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.8″ Allah has promised those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) and do deeds of righteousness, that for them there is forgiveness and a great reward (i.e., Paradise).9″


الٓمّٓۚ‏ (۱)  ذٰلِكَ الۡڪِتٰبُ لَا رَيۡبَۛ ۚ فِيۡهِۛ ۚ هُدًى لِّلۡمُتَّقِيۡنَۙ‏ (۲)  الَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِالۡغَيۡبِ وَ يُقِيۡمُوۡنَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقۡنٰهُمۡ يُنۡفِقُوۡنَۙ‏ (۳)  وَالَّذِيۡنَ يُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِمَۤا اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ وَمَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ مِنۡ قَبۡلِكَۚ وَبِالۡاٰخِرَةِ هُمۡ يُوۡقِنُوۡنَؕ‏ (۴)  اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ عَلٰى هُدًى مِّنۡ رَّبِّهِمۡ‌ ۖ وَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ الۡمُفۡلِحُوۡنَ‏ (۵)


         This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah- 2. Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,3. And who believe in what has been revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain [in faith]. 4. Those are under [right] guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are successful. 5.


لَيۡسَ الۡبِرَّ اَنۡ تُوَلُّوۡا وُجُوۡهَكُمۡ قِبَلَ الۡمَشۡرِقِ وَ الۡمَغۡرِبِ وَلٰـكِنَّ الۡبِرَّ مَنۡ اٰمَنَ بِاللّٰهِ وَالۡيَوۡمِ الۡاٰخِرِ وَالۡمَلٰٓٮِٕکَةِ وَالۡكِتٰبِ وَالنَّبِيّٖنَ ‌ۚ وَاٰتَى الۡمَالَ عَلٰى حُبِّهٖ ذَوِى الۡقُرۡبٰى وَالۡيَتٰمٰى وَالۡمَسٰكِيۡنَ وَابۡنَ السَّبِيۡلِۙ وَالسَّآٮِٕلِيۡنَ وَفِى الرِّقَابِ‌ۚ وَاَقَامَ الصَّلٰوةَ وَاٰتَى الزَّکٰوةَ ۚ   وَالۡمُوۡفُوۡنَ بِعَهۡدِهِمۡ اِذَا عٰهَدُوۡا ۚ   وَالصّٰبِرِيۡنَ فِى الۡبَاۡسَآءِ وَالضَّرَّآءِ وَحِيۡنَ الۡبَاۡسِؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ الَّذِيۡنَ صَدَقُوۡا  ؕ  وَاُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ الۡمُتَّقُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۷۷﴾۔


           Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.


Rusting on faith with time.

اَلَمۡ يَاۡنِ لِلَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اَنۡ تَخۡشَعَ قُلُوۡبُهُمۡ لِذِكۡرِ اللّٰهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الۡحَـقِّۙ وَلَا يَكُوۡنُوۡا كَالَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوا الۡكِتٰبَ مِنۡ قَبۡلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيۡهِمُ الۡاَمَدُ فَقَسَتۡ قُلُوۡبُهُمۡ‌ ؕ وَكَثِيۡرٌ مِّنۡهُمۡ فٰسِقُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۶﴾۔


               Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) to be affected by Allah’s Reminder (this Qur’an), and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] before (i.e. Jews and Christians), and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).16″


Reality of worldly life.

اِعۡلَمُوۡۤا اَنَّمَا الۡحَيٰوةُ الدُّنۡيَا لَعِبٌ وَّلَهۡوٌ وَّزِيۡنَةٌ وَّتَفَاخُرٌۢ بَيۡنَكُمۡ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِى الۡاَمۡوَالِ وَالۡاَوۡلَادِ‌ؕ كَمَثَلِ غَيۡثٍ اَعۡجَبَ الۡكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهٗ ثُمَّ يَهِيۡجُ فَتَرٰٮهُ مُصۡفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُوۡنُ حُطٰمًا‌ ؕ وَفِى الۡاٰخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيۡدٌ ۙ وَّمَغۡفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللّٰهِ وَرِضۡوَانٌ‌ؕ وَمَا الۡحَيٰوةُ الدُّنۡيَاۤ اِلَّا مَتَاعُ الۡغُرُوۡرِ‏ (۲۰)


          Know that the life of this world is only play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting among you, and rivalry in respect of wealth and children, as the likeness of vegetation after rain, thereof the growth is pleasing to the tiller; afterwards it dries up and you see it turning yellow; then it becomes straw. But in the Hereafter (there is) a severe torment (for the disbelievers, evil-doers), and (there is) Forgiveness from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure (for the believers, good-doers), whereas the life of this world is only a deceiving enjoyment.20″
