Quran English Translation Sura 52-72 P1


Sura 52:  Mount Sinai (Al-Toor)

Number of verses in sura: 49

Order of revelation: 76

 

[52:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[52:1]  Mt. Sinai.

 

[52:2]  The recorded scripture.

 

[52:3]  Published in books.

 

[52:4]  The frequented Shrine.

 

[52:5]  The exalted ceiling.

 

[52:6]  The sea that is set aflame.

 

[52:7]  Your Lord’s requital is unavoidable.

 

[52:8]  No force in the universe can stop it.

 

[52:9]  The day will come when the sky will violently thunder.

 

[52:10]  The mountains will be wiped out.

 

[52:11]  Woe on that day to the disbelievers –

 

[52:12]  who are in their blundering, heedless.

 

[52:13]  They will be herded into Gehenna, forcibly.

 

[52:14]  This is the Fire in which you used to disbelieve.

 

[52:15]  Is this magic, or do you not see?

 

[52:16]  Suffer the burning. Whether you are patient or impatient, it will be the same for you. This is the just requital for what you did.

 

[52:17]  The righteous have deserved gardens and bliss.

 

[52:18]  They enjoy what their Lord has reserved for them; their Lord has spared them the retribution of Hell.

 

[52:19]  Eat and drink happily, in return for your works.

 

[52:20]  They relax on luxurious furnishings, and we match them with beautiful spouses.

 

[52:21]  For those who believed, and their children also followed them in belief, we will have their children join them. We never fail to reward them for any work. Every person is paid for what he did.

 

[52:22]  We will supply them with fruits and meats that they love.

 

[52:23]  They will enjoy drinks that are never polluted, and never sinful to drink.

 

[52:24]  Serving them will be servants like protected pearls.

 

[52:25]  They will meet each other and reminisce among themselves.

 

[52:26]  They will say, “We used to be kind and humble among our people.

 

[52:27]  “GOD has blessed us, and has spared us the agony of ill winds.

 

[52:28]  “We used to implore Him; He is the Most Kind, Most Merciful.”

 

[52:29]  You shall remind the people. With your Lord’s blessing’s upon you, you are neither a soothsayer, nor crazy.

 

[52:30]  They may say, “He is a poet; let us just wait until he is dead.”

 

[52:31]  Say, “Go on waiting; I will wait along with you.”

 

[52:32]  Is it their dreams that dictate their behavior, or are they naturally wicked?

 

[52:33]  Do they say, “He made it all up?” Instead, they are simply disbelievers.

 

[52:34]  Let them produce a Hadith like this, if they are truthful.

 

[52:35]  Were they created from nothing? Are they the creators?

 

[52:36]  Did they create the heavens and the earth? Indeed, they have no certainty.

 

[52:37]  Do they possess the treasures of your Lord? Are they in control?

 

[52:38]  Do they climb a ladder that enables them to listen? Let their listeners show their proof.

 

[52:39]  Does He have daughters, while you have sons?

 

[52:40]  Are you asking them for any wage, and they are burdened thereby?

 

[52:41]  Do they know the future, and have it recorded?

 

[52:42]  Are they plotting and scheming? The disbelievers’ schemes backfire against them.

 

[52:43]  Do they have another god beside GOD? GOD be glorified, far above having partners.

 

[52:44]  When they see masses falling from the sky, they will say, “Piled clouds!”

 

[52:45]  Disregard them until they meet the day in which they are struck.

 

[52:46]  On that day, their schemes will not protect them, nor will they be helped.

 

[52:47]  Those who transgress suffer retribution here, but most of them do not know.

 

[52:48]  You shall steadfastly persevere in carrying out your Lord’s command – you are in our eyes – and glorify and praise your Lord when you get up.

 

[52:49]  Also during the night glorify Him, and at dawn as the stars fade away.

Sura 53:  The Stars (Al-Najm)

Number of verses in sura: 62

Order of revelation: 23

 

[53:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[53:1]  As the stars fell away.

 

[53:2]  Your friend (Muhammad) was not astray, nor was he deceived.

 

[53:3]  Nor was he speaking out of a personal desire.

 

[53:4]  It was divine inspiration.

 

[53:5]  Dictated by the Most Powerful.

 

[53:6]  Possessor of all authority. From His highest height.

 

[53:7]  At the highest horizon.

 

[53:8]  He drew nearer by moving down.

 

[53:9]  Until He became as close as possible.

 

[53:10]  He then revealed to His servant what was to be revealed.

 

[53:11]  The mind never made up what it saw.

 

[53:12]  Are you doubting what he saw?

 

[53:13]  He saw him in another descent.

 

[53:14]  At the ultimate point.

 

[53:15]  Where the eternal Paradise is located.

 

[53:16]  The whole place was overwhelmed.

 

[53:17]  The eyes did not waver, nor go blind.

 

[53:18]  He saw great signs of his Lord.

 

[53:19]  Compare this with the female idols Allaat and Al-`Uzzah.

 

[53:20]  And Manaat, the third one.

 

[53:21]  Do you have sons, while He has these as daughters?

 

[53:22]  What a disgraceful distribution!

 

[53:23]  These are but names that you made up, you and your forefathers. GOD never authorized such a blasphemy. They follow conjecture, and personal desire, when the true guidance has come to them herein from their Lord.

 

[53:24]  What is it that the human being desires?

 

[53:25]  To GOD belongs both the Hereafter, and this world.

 

[53:26]  Not even the angels in heaven possess authority to intercede. The only ones permitted by GOD are those who act in accordance with His will and His approval.

 

[53:27]  Those who disbelieve in the Hereafter have given the angels feminine names.

 

[53:28]  They had no knowledge about this; they only conjectured. Conjecture is no substitute for the truth.

 

[53:29]  You shall disregard those who turn away from our message, and become preoccupied with this worldly life.

 

[53:30]  This is the extent of their knowledge. Your Lord is fully aware of those who strayed away from His path, and He is fully aware of those who are guided.

 

[53:31]  To GOD belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. He will requite those who commit evil for their works, and will reward the righteous for their righteousness.

 

[53:32]  They avoid gross sins and transgressions, except for minor offenses. Your Lord’s forgiveness is immense. He has been fully aware of you since He initiated you from the earth, and while you were embryos in your mothers’ bellies. Therefore, do not exalt yourselves; He is fully aware of the righteous.

 

[53:33]  Have you noted the one who turned away?

 

[53:34]  Rarely did he give to charity, and then very little.

 

[53:35]  Did he possess knowledge of the future? Could he see it?

 

[53:36]  Was he not informed of the teachings in the scripture of Moses?

 

[53:37]  And Abraham who fulfilled?

 

[53:38]  No soul bears the sins of another soul.

 

[53:39]  Every human being is responsible for his own works.

 

[53:40]  And everyone’s works will be shown.

 

[53:41]  Then they will be paid fully for such works.

 

[53:42]  To your Lord is the final destiny.

 

[53:43]  He is the One who makes you laugh or cry.

 

[53:44]  He is the One who controls death and life.

 

[53:45]  He is the One who created the two kinds, male and female –

 

[53:46]  from a tiny drop of semen.

 

[53:47]  He will effect the recreation.

 

[53:48]  He is the One who makes you rich or poor.

 

[53:49]  He is the Lord of the galaxies.

 

[53:50]  He is the One who annihilated ancient `Aad.

 

[53:51]  And wiped out Thamoud.

 

[53:52]  Also the people of Noah before that; they were evil transgressors.

 

[53:53]  The evil communities (of Sodom and Gomorrah) were the lowliest.

 

[53:54]  Consequently, they utterly vanished.

 

[53:55]  Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?

 

[53:56]  This is a warning like the older ones.

 

[53:57]  The inevitable is imminent.

 

[53:58]  None beside GOD can relieve it.

 

[53:59]  Are you questioning this matter?

 

[53:60]  Are you laughing, instead of crying?

 

[53:61]  Are you insisting on your ways?

 

[53:62]  You shall fall prostrate before GOD, and worship.

Sura 54:  The Moon (Al-Qamar)

Number of verses in sura: 55

Order of revelation: 37

 

[54:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

[54:1]  The Hour has come closer, and the moon has split.

 

[54:2]  Then they saw a miracle; but they turned away and said, “Old magic.”

 

[54:3]  They disbelieved, followed their opinions, and adhered to their old traditions.

 

[54:4]  Sufficient warnings have been delivered to alert them.

 

[54:5]  Great wisdom; but all the warnings have been in vain.

 

[54:6]  Ignore them; the day will come when the caller will announce a terrible disaster.

 

[54:7]  With their eyes humiliated, they come out of the graves like scattered locusts.

 

[54:8]  As they respond to the caller, the disbelievers will say, “This is a difficult day.”

 

[54:9]  The people of Noah disbelieved before them. They disbelieved our servant and said, “Crazy!” He was persecuted.

 

[54:10]  He implored his Lord, “I am oppressed; grant me victory.”

 

[54:11]  We then opened the gates of the sky, pouring water.

 

[54:12]  And we caused springs to gush out of the earth. The waters met to effect a predetermined decision.

 

[54:13]  We carried him on a watercraft made of logs and ropes.

 

[54:14]  It ran under our watchful eyes; a reward for one who was rejected.

 

[54:15]  We have set it up as a lesson. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:16]  How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!

 

[54:17]  We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:18]  `Aad disbelieved. Consequently, how terrible was My retribution after the warnings.

 

[54:19]  We sent upon them violent winds, on a day of continuous misery.

 

[54:20]  It tossed the people around as if they were decayed palm tree trunks.

 

[54:21]  How terrible was My retribution after the warnings!

 

[54:22]  We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:23]  Thamoud rejected the warnings.

 

[54:24]  They said, “Shall we follow one of us; a human being? We will then go astray, then end up in Hell.

 

[54:25]  “Did the message come down to him, instead of us? He is a flagrant liar.”

 

[54:26]  They will find out tomorrow who the flagrant liar is.

 

[54:27]  We are sending the camel as a test for them. Watch them and be patient.

 

[54:28]  Inform them that the water shall be divided among them; (the camel) shall be allowed to drink on her designated day.

 

[54:29]  But they persuaded their friend to kill (the camel), and he obliged.

 

[54:30]  Consequently, how terrible was My retribution! They have been warned.

 

[54:31]  We sent upon them one blow, whereupon they became like harvested hay.

 

[54:32]  We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:33]  The people of Lot rejected the warnings.

 

[54:34]  We showered them with rocks. Only Lot’s family was saved at dawn.

 

[54:35]  We blessed him and his family; we thus reward the appreciative.

 

[54:36]  He warned them about our requital, but they ridiculed the warnings.

 

[54:37]  They negotiated with him about his guests; we blinded them. Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.

 

[54:38]  Early the next morning, a devastating retribution struck them.

 

[54:39]  Suffer My retribution; you have been warned.

 

[54:40]  We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:41]  Pharaoh’s people were warned.

 

[54:42]  They rejected all our signs. Consequently, we requited them as an Almighty, Omnipotent should.

 

[54:43]  Are your disbelievers better than those disbelievers? Have you been absolved by the scripture?

 

[54:44]  Perhaps they think, “We will be the winners.”

 

[54:45]  All of them will be defeated; they will turn around and flee.

 

[54:46]  The Hour is awaiting them, and the Hour is far worse and more painful.

 

[54:47]  Certainly, the guilty are astray, and will end up in Hell.

 

[54:48]  They will be dragged into the hellfire, forcibly. Suffer the agony of retribution.

 

[54:49]  Everything we created is precisely measured.

 

[54:50]  Our commands are done within the blink of an eye.

 

[54:51]  We annihilated your counterparts. Does any of you wish to learn?

 

[54:52]  Everything they did is recorded in the scriptures.

 

[54:53]  Everything, small or large, is written down.

 

[54:54]  Surely, the righteous have deserved gardens and rivers.

 

[54:55]  In a position of honor, at an Omnipotent King.
