Quran English Translation Sura 40-51 P4


[48:21]  As for the group that you could not possibly defeat, GOD took care of them; GOD is Omnipotent.

 

[48:22]  If the disbelievers ever fought you, they would turn around and flee. They have no Lord and Master; they have no helper.

 

[48:23]  Such is GOD‘s system throughout history, and you will find that GOD‘s system is unchangeable.

 

[48:24]  He is the One who withheld their hands of aggression against you, and withheld your hands of aggression against them in the valley of Mecca, after He had granted you victory over them. GOD is Seer of everything you do.

 

[48:25]  It is they who disbelieved and barred you from the Sacred Masjid, and even prevented your offerings from reaching their destination. There were believing men and women (within the enemy camp) whom you did not know, and you were about to hurt them, unknowingly. GOD thus admits into His mercy whomever He wills. If they persist, He will requite those among them who disbelieve with a painful retribution.

 

[48:26]  While those who disbelieved were enraged, and their hearts were filled with the pride of the days of ignorance, GOD blessed His messenger and the believers with peaceful contentment, and directed them to uphold the word of righteousness. This is what they well deserved. GOD is fully aware of all things.

 

[48:27]  GOD has fulfilled His messenger’s truthful vision: “You will enter the Sacred Masjid, GOD willing, perfectly secure, and you will cut your hair or shorten it (as you fulfill the pilgrimage rituals) there. You will not have any fear. Since He knew what you did not know, He has coupled this with an immediate victory.”

 

[48:28]  He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it prevail over all other religions. GOD suffices as a witness.

 

[48:29]  Muhammad – the messenger of GOD – and those with him are harsh and stern against the disbelievers, but kind and compassionate amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating, as they seek GOD‘s blessings and approval. Their marks are on their faces, because of prostrating. This is the same example as in the Torah. Their example in the Gospel is like plants that grow taller and stronger, and please the farmers. He thus enrages the disbelievers. GOD promises those among them who believe, and lead a righteous life, forgiveness and a great recompense.

Sura 49:  The Walls (Al-Hujurat)

Number of verses in sura: 18

Order of revelation: 106

 

[49:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[49:1]  O you who believe, do not place your opinion above that of GOD and His messenger. You shall reverence GOD. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.

 

[49:2]  O you who believe, do not raise your voices above the voice of the prophet, nor shall you shout at him as you shout at each other, lest your works become nullified while you do not perceive.

 

[49:3]  Surely, those who lower their voices at the messenger of GOD are the ones whose hearts are prepared by GOD to become righteous. They have deserved forgiveness and a great recompense.

 

[49:4]  As for those who call on you from outside the walls, most of them do not understand.

 

[49:5]  Had they been patient until you came out to them, it would have been better for them. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

 

[49:6]  O you who believe, if a wicked person brings any news to you, you shall first investigate, lest you commit injustice towards some people, out of ignorance, then become sorry and remorseful for what you have done.

 

[49:7]  And know that GOD‘s messenger has come in your midst. Had he listened to you in many things, you would have made things difficult for yourselves. But GOD made you love faith and adorned it in your hearts, and He made you abhor disbelief, wickedness, and disobedience. These are the guided ones.

 

[49:8]  Such is grace from GOD and His blessings. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.

 

[49:9]  If two groups of believers fought with each other, you shall reconcile them. If one group aggresses against the other, you shall fight the aggressing group until they submit to GOD‘s command. Once they submit, you shall reconcile the two groups equitably. You shall maintain justice; GOD loves those who are just.

 

[49:10]  The believers are members of one family; you shall keep the peace within your family and reverence GOD, that you may attain mercy.

 

[49:11]  O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or make fun of your names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors.

 

[49:12]  O you who believe, you shall avoid any suspicion, for even a little bit of suspicion is sinful. You shall not spy on one another, nor shall you backbite one another; this is as abominable as eating the flesh of your dead brother. You certainly abhor this. You shall observe GOD. GOD is Redeemer, Most Merciful.

 

[49:13]  O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.

 

[49:14]  The Arabs said, “We are Mu’mens (believers).” Say, “You have not believed; what you should say is, `We are Muslims (submitters),’ until belief is established in your hearts.” If you obey GOD and His messenger, He will not put any of your works to waste. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.

 

[49:15]  Mu’mens (believers) are those who believe in GOD and His messenger, then attain the status of having no doubt whatsoever, and strive with their money and their lives in the cause of GOD. These are the truthful ones.

 

[49:16]  Say, “Are you informing GOD about your religion? GOD knows everything in the heavens and the earth. GOD is Omniscient.”

 

[49:17]  They act as if they are doing you a favor by embracing Submission! Say, “You are not doing me any favors by embracing Submission. GOD is the One who is doing you a great favor by guiding you to the faith, if you are sincere.”

 

[49:18]  GOD knows all the secrets in the heavens and the earth; GOD is Seer of everything you do.

Sura 50:  Q. (Qaf)

Number of verses in sura: 45

Order of revelation: 34

 

[50:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[50:1]  Q., and the glorious Quran.

 

[50:2]  They found it strange that a warner from among them came to them! The disbelievers said, “This is really strange.

 

[50:3]  “After we die and become dust; this is impossible.”

 

[50:4]  We are fully aware of anyone of them who gets consumed by the earth; we have an accurate record.

 

[50:5]  They rejected the truth when it came to them; they are utterly confused.

 

[50:6]  Have they not looked at the sky above them, and how we constructed it and adorned it, without a flaw?

 

[50:7]  And we created the earth, and scattered on it mountains, and grew in it all kinds of beautiful plants.

 

[50:8]  This is an enlightenment, and a reminder for every pious worshiper.

 

[50:9]  And we sent from the sky blessed water, to grow with it gardens and grains to be harvested.

 

[50:10]  Tall date palms, with clustered fruit.

 

[50:11]  Provisions for the people. And we revive with it dead lands; you are similarly resurrected.

 

[50:12]  Disbelieving before them were the people of Noah, the dwellers of Russ, and Thamoud.

 

[50:13]  And `Aad, Pharaoh, and the brethren of Lot.

 

[50:14]  And the dwellers of the woods, and the people of Tubba`. All of them disbelieved the messengers and, consequently, My retribution befell them.

 

[50:15]  Were we too burdened by the first creation? Is this why they doubt resurrection?

 

[50:16]  We created the human, and we know what he whispers to himself. We are closer to him than his jugular vein.

 

[50:17]  Two recording (angels), at right and at left, are constantly recording.

 

[50:18]  Not an utterance does he utter without an alert witness.

 

[50:19]  Finally, the inevitable coma of death comes; this is what you tried to evade.

 

[50:20]  The horn is blown; this is the promised day.

 

[50:21]  Every soul comes with a herder and a witness.

 

[50:22]  You used to be oblivious to this. We now remove your veil; today, your vision is (as strong as) steel.

 

[50:23]  The companion said, “Here is my formidable testimony.”

 

[50:24]  Throw into Gehenna every stubborn disbeliever.

 

[50:25]  Forbidder of charity, aggressor, full of doubt.

 

[50:26]  He set up beside GOD another god. Throw him into severe retribution.

 

[50:27]  His companion said, “Our Lord, I did not mislead him; he was far astray.”

 

[50:28]  He said, “Do not feud in front of Me; I have sufficiently warned you.

 

[50:29]  “Nothing can be changed now. I am never unjust towards the people.”

 

[50:30]  That is the day when we ask Hell, “Have you had enough?” It will say, “Give me more.”

 

[50:31]  Paradise will be offered to the righteous, readily.

 

[50:32]  This is what was promised to every repenter, steadfast.

 

[50:33]  They reverenced the Most Gracious, in their privacy, and came wholeheartedly.

 

[50:34]  Enter it in peace; this is the Day of Eternity.

 

[50:35]  They get anything they wish therein, and we have even more.

 

[50:36]  Many a generation before them, who were more powerful, we annihilated. They searched the land; did they find an escape?

 

[50:37]  This should be a lesson for everyone who possesses a mind, or is able to hear and witness.

 

[50:38]  We have created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them in six days, and no fatigue touched us.

 

[50:39]  Therefore, be patient in the face of their utterances, and praise and glorify your Lord before sunrise, and before sunset.

 

[50:40]  During the night you shall meditate on His name, and after prostrating.

 

[50:41]  Prepare for the day when the caller calls from a place that is near.

 

[50:42]  When they hear the inevitable cry; that is the day you come out.

 

[50:43]  We are the ones who control life and death; to us is the final destiny.

 

[50:44]  The day will come when the earth cracks in a hurry, giving rise to them. Such summoning is easy for us to do.

 

[50:45]  We are fully aware of everything they utter, while you have no power over them. Therefore, remind with this Quran, those who reverence My warnings.

Sura 51:  Drivers of the Winds (Al-Dhareyat)

Number of verses in sura: 60

Order of revelation: 67

 

[51:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[51:1]  The blowing winds.

 

[51:2]  Bearing rain.

 

[51:3]  Bringing provisions.

 

[51:4]  Distributing them as commanded.

 

[51:5]  What is promised to you will surely come to pass.

 

[51:6]  The Day of Judgment is inevitable.

 

[51:7]  Despite the perfectly created sky.

 

[51:8]  You continue to dispute the truth.

 

[51:9]  Deviating therefrom are the deviators.

 

[51:10]  Woe to the falsifiers.

 

[51:11]  In their blundering, they are totally heedless.

 

[51:12]  They question the Day of Judgment.

 

[51:13]  The day they are presented to the fire.

 

[51:14]  Taste the retribution; this is what you used to challenge.

 

[51:15]  The righteous have deserved gardens and springs.

 

[51:16]  They receive their Lord’s rewards, for they used to be pious.

 

[51:17]  Rarely did they sleep the whole night.

 

[51:18]  At dawn, they prayed for forgiveness.

 

[51:19]  A portion of their money was set aside for the beggar and the needy.

 

[51:20]  The earth is full of signs for those who are certain.

 

[51:21]  And within yourselves; can you see?

 

[51:22]  In the heaven is your provision, and everything that is promised to you.

 

[51:23]  By the Lord of the heaven and the earth, this is as true as the fact that you speak.

 

[51:24]  Have you noted the history of Abraham’s honorable guests?

 

[51:25]  They visited him, saying, “Peace.” He said, “Peace to you, strangers!”

 

[51:26]  He asked his family to prepare a fat calf.

 

[51:27]  When he offered it to them, he remarked, “Do you not eat?”

 

[51:28]  He harbored fear of them. They said, “Have no fear,” and they gave good news of a knowledgeable son.

 

[51:29]  His wife was astonished. Noting her wrinkled face: “I am a sterile old woman.”

 

[51:30]  They said, “Thus said your Lord. He is the Most Wise, the Omniscient.”

 

[51:31]  He said, “What are you up to, O messengers?”

 

[51:32]  They said, “We have been dispatched to criminal people.

 

[51:33]  “We will shower them with rocks of clay.

 

[51:34]  “Marked by your Lord for the transgressors.”

 

[51:35]  We then delivered all the believers.

 

[51:36]  We did not find in it except one house of submitters.

 

[51:37]  We set it up as a lesson for those who fear the painful retribution.

 

[51:38]  In Moses (there is a lesson). We sent him to Pharaoh with manifest proofs.

 

[51:39]  But he turned away, in arrogance, and said, “Magician, or crazy.”

 

[51:40]  Consequently, we punished him and his troops. We threw them into the sea, and he is the one to blame.

 

[51:41]  In `Aad (there is a lesson). We sent upon them disastrous wind.

 

[51:42]  Anything that it came upon was utterly destroyed.

 

[51:43]  In Thamoud (there is a lesson). They were told, “Enjoy temporarily.”

 

[51:44]  They rebelled against the command of their Lord. Consequently, the lightning struck them as they looked.

 

[51:45]  They could never get up, nor were they helped.

 

[51:46]  And the people of Noah before that; they were wicked people.

 

[51:47]  We constructed the sky with our hands, and we will continue to expand it.

 

[51:48]  And we made the earth habitable; a perfect design.

 

[51:49]  We created a pair (male and female) of everything, that you may take heed.

 

[51:50]  You shall escape to GOD. I am sent by Him to you as a manifest warner.

 

[51:51]  Do not set up beside GOD any other god. I am sent by Him to you as a manifest warner.

 

[51:52]  Consistently, when a messenger went to the previous generations, they said, “Magician,” or, “Crazy.”

 

[51:53]  Did they make an agreement with each other? Indeed, they are transgressors.

 

[51:54]  You may disregard them; you cannot be blamed.

 

[51:55]  And remind, for the reminder benefits the believers.

 

[51:56]  I did not create the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone.

 

[51:57]  I need no provisions from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.

 

[51:58]  GOD is the Provider, the Possessor of all power, the Supreme.

 

[51:59]  The transgressors have incurred the same fate as their previous counterparts; they should not challenge.

 

[51:60]  Woe to those who disbelieved from the day that is awaiting them.
