 #22. Hajj *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful



1. O mankind! fear your Lord! For the convulsion of the Hour (of
Judgment) will be a thing terrible!

2. The Day ye shall see it every mother giving suck shall forget
her suckling-babe and every pregnant female shall drop her load
(unformed) thou shalt see mankind as in a drunken riot yet not
drunk: but dreadful will be the Wrath of Allah

3. And yet among men there are such as dispute about Allah
without knowledge and follow every evil one obstinate in
rebellion!

4. About the (Evil One) it is decreed that whoever turns to him
for friendship him will he lead astray and he will guide him to
the Penalty of the Fire

5. O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection
(consider) that We created you out of dust then out of sperm then
out of a leech like clot then out a morsel of flesh partly formed
and partly unformed in order that We may manifest (Our Power) to
you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an
appointed term then do We bring you out as babes then (foster
you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and some of you
are called to die and some are sent back to the feeblest old age
so that they know nothing after having known (much). And
(further) thou seest the earth barren and lifeless but when We
pour down rain on it it is stirred (to life) it swells and it
puts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)

6. This is so because Allah is the Reality: it is He Who gives
life to the dead and it is He Who has power over all things

7. And verily the Hour will come: there can be no doubt about it
or about (the fact) that Allah will raise up all who are in the
graves

8. Yet there is among men such a one as disputes about Allah
without knowledge without guidance and without a Book of
Enlightenment

9. (Disdainfully) bending his side in order to (lead men) astray
from the Path of Allah; for him there is disgrace in this life
and on the Day of Judgment, we shall make him taste the Penalty
of burning (Fire)

10. (It will be said): "This is because of the deeds which thy
hands sent forth for verily Allah is not unjust to His servants

11. There are among men some who serve Allah as it were on the
verge: if good befalls them they are therewith well content; but
if a trial comes to them. they turn on their faces: they lose
both this world and the Hereafter that is loss for all to see!

12. They call on such deities besides Allah as can neither hurt
nor profit them: that is straying far indeed (from the Way)!

13. (Perhaps) they call on one whose hurt is nearer than his
profit: evil indeed is the patron and evil the companion (for
help)!

14. Verily Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous
deeds to Gardens beneath which rivers flow: for Allah carries out
all that He plans

15. If any think that Allah will not help him (His Apostle) in
this world and the Hereafter let him stretch out a rope to the
ceiling and cut (himself) off: then let him see whether his plan
will remove that which enrages (him)!

16. Thus have We sent down Clear Signs; and verily Allah doth
guide whom He will!

17. Those who believe (in the Qur'an) those who follow the Jewish
(scriptures) and the Sabians Christians Magians and Polytheists
Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for Allah
is witness of all things

18. Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things
that are in the heavens and on earth the sun the moon the stars;
the hills the trees the animals; and a great number among
mankind? But a great number are (also) such as are fit for
Punishment: and such as Allah shall disgrace none can rise to
honor: for Allah carries out all that He wills

19. These two antagonists dispute with each other about their
Lord: but those who deny (their Lord) for them will be cut out a
garment of Fire: over their heads will be poured out boiling
water

20. With it will be scalded what is within their bodies as well
as (their) skins

21. In addition there will be maces of iron (to punish) them

22. Every time they wish to get away therefrom from anguish they
will be forced back therein and (it will be said) "Taste ye the
Penalty of Burning!"

23. Allah will admit those who believe and work righteous deeds
to Gardens beneath which rivers flow: they shall be adorned
therein with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments
there will be of silk

24. For they have been guided (in this life) to the purest of
speeches; they have been guided to the Path of Him Who is worthy
of (all) praise

25. As to those who have rejected (Allah) and would keep back
(men) from the Way of Allah and from the Sacred Mosque which We
have made (open) to (all) men equal is the dweller there and the
visitor from the country and any whose purpose therein is
profanity or wrong-doing them will We cause to taste of a most
grievous Penalty

26. Behold! We gave the site to Abraham of the (Sacred) House
(saying): "Associate not any thing (in worship) with Me; and
sanctify My House for those who compass it round or stand up or
bow or prostrate themselves (therein in prayer)

27. "And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to
thee on foot and (mounted) on every kind of camel lean on account
of journeys through deep" and distant mountain highways;

28. "That they may witness the benefits (provided) for them and
celebrate the name of Allah through the Days appointed over the
cattle which He has provided for them (for sacrifice): then eat
ye thereof and feed the distressed ones in want

29. "Then let them complete the rites prescribed for them perform
their vows and (again) circumambulate the Ancient House."

30. Such (is the Pilgrimage): whoever honors the sacred rites of
Allah for him it is good in the sight of his Lord. Lawful to you
(for food in pilgrimage) are cattle except those mentioned to you
(as exceptions): but shun the abomination of idols and shun the
word that is false

31. Being true in faith to Allah and never assigning partners to
Him: if anyone assigns partners to Allah he is as if he had
fallen from heaven and been snatched up by birds or the wind had
swooped (like a bird on its prey) and thrown him into a
far-distant place

32. Such (is his state): and whoever holds in honor the Symbols
of Allah (in the sacrifice of animals) such (honor) should come
truly from piety of heart

33. In them ye have benefits for a term appointed: in the end
their place of sacrifice is near the Ancient House

34. To every people did We appoint rites (of sacrifice) that they
might celebrate the name of Allah over the sustenance He gave
them from animals (fit for food) but your Allah is one Allah:
submit then your wills to Him (in Islam) and give thou the Good
News to those who humble themselves

35. To those whose hearts when Allah is mentioned are filled with
fear who show patient perseverance over their afflictions keep up
regular prayer and spend (in charity) out of what we have
bestowed upon them

36. The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the
Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then
pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for
sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter)
eat ye thereof and feed such as (beg not but) live in contentment
and such as beg with due humility: thus have we made animals
subject to you that ye may be grateful

37. It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah: it
is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to
you that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you: and
proclaim the Good News to all who do right

38. Verily Allah will defend (from ill) those who believe: verily
Allah loveth not any that is a traitor to faith or shows
ingratitude

39. To those against whom war is made permission is given (to
fight) because they are wronged and verily Allah is Most powerful
for their aid

40. (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in
defiance of right (for no cause) except that they say "Our Lord
is Allah." Did not Allah check one set of people by means of
another there would surely have been pulled down monasteries
churches synagogues and mosques in which the name of Allah is
commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those
who aid His (cause); for verily Allah is Full of Strength Exalted
in Might (Able to enforce His Will)

41. (They are) those who if We establish them in the land
establish regular prayer and give regular charity enjoin the
right and forbid wrong: with Allah rests the end (and decision)
of (all) affairs

42. If they treat thy (mission) as false so did the Peoples
before them (with their prophets) the People of Noah and `Ad and
Thamud;

43. Those of Abraham and Lut;

44. And the Companions of the Madyan people: and Moses was
rejected (in the same way). But I granted respite to the
Unbelievers and (only) after that did I punish them: but how
(terrible) was My rejection (of them)!

45. How many populations have We destroyed which were given to
wrong- doing! They tumbled down on their roofs. And how many
wells are lying idle and neglected and castles lofty and
well-built!

46. Do they not travel through the land so that their hearts (and
mind) may thus learn wisdom and their ears may thus learn to
hear? Truly it is not their eyes that are blind but their hearts
which are in their breasts

47. Yet they ask thee to hasten on the Punishment! But Allah will
not fail in His promise. Verily a day in the sight of thy Lord is
like a thousand years of your reckoning

48. And to how many populations did I give respite which were
given to wrong-doing? In the end I punished them. To Me is the
destination (of all)

49. Say: "O men! I am (sent) to you only to give a clear warning"

50. "Those who believe and work righteousness for them is
forgiveness and a sustenance most generous

51. "But those who strive against Our Signs to frustrate them
they will be Companions of the Fire."

52. Never did We send an apostle or a prophet before thee but
when he framed a desire Satan threw some (vanity) into his
desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws
in and Allah will confirm (and establish) His Signs: for Allah is
full of knowledge and wisdom

53. That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan but a
trial for those in whose hearts is a disease and who are hardened
of heart: verily the X wrongdoers are in a schism far (from
the Truth): YI

54. And that those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may learn
that the (Qur'an) is the Truth from thy Lord and that they may
believe therein and their hearts may be may be made humbly (open)
to it: for verily Allah is the Guide of those who believe to the
Straight Way

55. Those who reject Faith will not cease to be in doubt
concerning (Revelation) until the Hour (of Judgment) comes
suddenly upon them or there comes to them the Penalty of a Day of
Disaster

56. On that Day the Dominion will be that of Allah: He will judge
between them: so those who believe and work righteous deeds will
be in Gardens of Delight

57. And for those who reject Faith and deny Our Signs there will
be a humiliating Punishment

58. Those who leave their homes in the cause of Allah and are
then slain or die on them will Allah bestow verily a goodly
Provision: truly Allah is He Who bestows the best Provision

59. Verily He will admit them to a place with which they shall be
well pleased: for Allah is All-Knowing Most Forbearing

60. That (is so). And if one has retaliated to no greater extent
than the injury he received and is again set upon inordinately
Allah will help him for Allah is One that blots out (sins) and
forgives (again and again)

61. That is because Allah merges Night into Day and He merges Day
into Night and verily it is Allah Who hears and sees (all things)

62. That is because Allah He is the Reality: and those besides
Him whom they invoke they are but vain Falsehood: verily Allah is
He Most High Most Great

63. Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky and
forthwith the earth becomes clothed with green? For Allah is He
Who understands the finest mysteries and is well-acquainted (with
them)

64. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: for
verily Allah He is Free of all wants Worthy of all praise

65. Seest thou not that Allah has made subject to you (men) all
that is on the earth and the ships that sail through the sea by
His command? He withholds the sky (rain) from falling on the
earth except by His leave: for Allah is Most Kind and Most
Merciful to man

66. It is He Who gave you life will cause you to die and will
again give you life: truly man is a most ungrateful creature!

67. To every People have we appointed rites and ceremonies which
they must follow let them not then dispute with thee on the
matter but do thou invite (them) to thy Lord: for thou art
assuredly on the Right Way

68. If they do wrangle with thee say "Allah knows best what it is
ye are doing."

69. "Allah will judge between you on the Day of Judgment
concerning the matters in which ye differ."

70. Knowest thou not that Allah knows all that is in heaven and
on earth? Indeed it is all in a record and that is easy for Allah

71. Yet they worship besides Allah things for which no authority
has been sent down to them and of which they have (really) no
knowledge: for those that do wrong there is no helper

72. When Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them thou wilt notice a
denial on the faces of the Unbelievers! They nearly attack with
violence those who rehearse Our Signs to them. Say "Shall I tell
you of something (far) worse than these Signs? It is the fire (of
Hell)! Allah has promised it tok the Unbelievers! And evil is
that destination!"

73. O men! Here is a parable set forth! Listen to it! Those on
whom besides Allah ye call cannot create (even) a fly if they all
met together for the purpose! And if the fly should snatch away
anything from them they would have no power to release it from
the fly: feeble are those who petition and those whom they
petition!

74. No just estimate have they made of Allah: for Allah is He Who
is strong and able to carry out His Will

75. Allah chooses Messengers from angels and from men: for Allah
is He Who hears and sees (all things)

76. He knows what is before them and what is behind them: and to
Allah go backo! all questions (for decision)

77. O ye who believe! bow down prostrate yourselves and adore
your Lord; and do good; that ye may prosper

78. And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive (with sincerity
and under discipline): He has chosen you and has imposed no
difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father
Abraham. It is He Who has named you Muslims both before and in
this (Revelation); that the Apostle may be a witness for you and
ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer give
regular Charity and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector the
Best to protect and the Best to help!
