as rendered by Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli

Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah The Pilgrimage(al-Hajj)
22:1 O Mankind! Be in awe of your Lord! Verily the earthquake of the Hour (of doom) is a grievous thing.
22:2 On the Day you shall behold it, every suckling mother shall forsake her suckling babe, and every pregnant woman shall lay down her burden, and you shall see the people (as) intoxicated, yet they are not intoxicated, but the chastisement of Allah is severe.
22:3 And among people there are such as dispute about Allah without knowledge, and follow every rebellious Satan.
22:4 About whom (Satan) it is decreed that whosoever takes him for friend, then verily he will mislead him and will guide him unto the torment of the burning Fire.
22:5 O, people! if you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then (consider that) verily We created you from dust, then from sperm, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, that We may manifest (Our power) to you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, then We bring you out as babes, then that you may attain your maturity, and some of you are called to die, and some of you are kept back to the worst part of life so that they know nothing after having known (much), and you see the earth dried, dead, but when We send down the water on it, it stirs and swells and brings forth every kind of attractive herbage (in pairs).
22:6 This is because verily Allah, He is the Truth, and because verily He gives life to the dead, and because verily He is All Powerful over everything.
22:7 And verily the Hour (of Resurrection) is coming: There is no doubt therein and that verily Allah will raise up whoever is within the graves.
22:8 And among the people there is such a one that disputes about Allah without knowledge, without guidance and without any enlightening Book.
22:9 Turning away in pride to lead (men) astray from the path of Allah: for him there is disgrace in this world and We shall make him to be on the Day of Judgment the punishment of the burning (Fire).
22:10 (And unto him it will be said): �This is for that which your two hands have sent before, and that (verily) Allah is not unjust to His servants�.
22:11 And among people there is such a one who worships Allah only by tongue, so that if good befalls him he is satisfied therewith, and if a trial afflicts him he turns back his face; he losses this world and (also) the Hereafter; that is indeed the manifest loss.
22:12 He calls, besides Allah, upon that which does not harm him and that which does not profit him: that is indeed the far straying.
22:13 He calls upon him whose harm is nearer than his profit; an evil protector indeed, he, an evil associate.
22:14 Verily Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds into gardens beneath which rivers flow; verily Allah does what He intends.
22:15 Whoever thinks that never will Allah help him (His Apostle) in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch up a rope to heaven (to hang himself), then let him cut it off, then see if his device takes away that at which he is enraged.
22:16 And thus have We sent it (The Qur�?n) down, (as) clear signs, and that verily Allah guides whomsoever He intends.
22:17 Verily those who believe (the Muslims) and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associate (others with Allah), verily, Allah will decide between them on the Day of Resurrection; verily Allah is witness over everything.
22:18 Have you not seen that to Allah prostrates whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth, and the sun and the moon, and the stars and the mountains and the trees and animals, and many of the people? But a great number are (also) such as unto whom the chastisement is justly due; and whomsoever Allah abases, there is none for him to honor; verily Allah does whatever He pleases.
22:19 These are, two adversaries who dispute about their Lord. But as for those who disbelieved, garments of Fire have been cut out, and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water.
22:20 With it shall be melted what is in their bellies, and (their) skins (as well).
22:21 And for them are maces of iron.
22:22 Whenever they will intend to get away there from, from anguish, they shall be turned back into it, and (it will be said to them) �Taste you the chastisement of burning�.
22:23 Verily, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds into gardens beneath which rivers flow, they shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and (with) pearls, and their garments therein shall be of silk.
22:24 And they are guided unto the purest of speeches, and they are guided to the Path (of Him who is) Worthy of (all) Praise.
22:25 Verily those who disbelieved, and hinder (the believers) from the way of Allah and the Sacred Mosque which We have made equally for all men, (for) the dweller therein and (for) the visitor from the country, and whoever does intend to wrong therein unjustly, We will make him taste of a grievous chastisement.
22:26 And (remember) when We prepare for Abraham the place of the (holy) House, (saying): �Do not associate with Me aught, and sanctify My House for those who make the round (thereof) and stand to pray and bow and prostrate themselves�.
22:27 And proclaim among men the pilgrimage; they will come to you on foot and (mounted) on every lean beast, coming from every remote path.
22:28 That they may witness advantages for them and mention the name of Allah during the appointed days over what He has provided them of the cattle quadrupeds (for sacrifice), then eat of them and feed the wretched poor.
22:29 Then let them get cleaned (smarten themselves) and fulfil their rows, and let them circumambulate the Ancient House (the Ka�bah).
22:30 Such (is the pilgrimage); and whoever magnifies the sacred things of Allah, it is better for him with his Lord; and the cattle are made lawful for you save that which has been recited to you, therefore avoid the filth of the idols and avoid false speech.
22:31 (Fulfil the rites of Hajj while) being true in Faith for Allah, not associating (anything) with Him, and whoever associates with Allah (anything), it is as though he had fallen from heaven and the birds snatch him away, or the wind carries him off to a far distant place.
22:32 That (is the command); and whoever holds in honour the rites of Allah, verily it is (the reflection) of the piety of the hearts.
22:33 You have benefits in them till an appointed time, then their place of sacrifice is by the Ancient House, (the ka�bah).
22:34 And for every people We appointed a ritual that they may mention the name of Allah on what He has provided them of the cattle quadrupeds (as their sustenance) so your God is One God, therefore surrender unto Him, and give you glad tidings unto the humble,
22:35 (To) those whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, and those who are patient under that which afflicts them, and the establishers of prayer, and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided them with.
22:36 And (as for) the fat camels, We have made them for you of the symbols of Allah, therein is good for you. So mention Allah�s Name on them, standing in a row; then, when they fall down (sacrificed) on their sides, eat of them and feed the contented (poor one) and such as beg with due humility; thus have We made them subservient to you that haply you may give thanks.
22:37 There never reaches Allah their flesh nor their blood, but it is your piety (that) reaches Him. Thus has He made them subservient to you, that you might pronounce the greatness of Allah for what He has guided you aright, and give good tidings to the good doers.
22:38 Verily Allah will defend those who believe; verily Allah does not love any treacherous ingrate.
22:39 To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight) for they have been oppressed, and verily Allah is well able to assist them.
22:40 (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes without right, except that they say: �Our Lord is Allah�. And had Allah not repelled some people by others, certainly there would have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and the mosques in which Allah�s name is much mentioned; and verily Allah will help him who helps Him (His cause); for verily Allah is Strong, Mighty.
22:41 Those who, if We establish them in the land, perform the prayer, and pay the alms, and enjoin good and forbid evil, and unto Allah belongs the end of (all) affairs.
22:42 And if they belie you (O� Prophet) then already before them did the people of Noah and �?d and Tham?d belie (prophets),
22:43 And the people of Abraham and the people of Lot,
22:44 And the dwellers of Midian; and Moses was (also) belied, but I gave respite to the disbelievers, then I did seize them, so how (severe) will be My punishment (of them).
22:45 So how many of townships We did destroy while they were unjust, and (their walls) have fallen down over their roofs, and (how many a) well abandoned and (even) lofty castles (ruined).
22:46 Have they not traveled in the land so that they should have hearts wherewith to understand (the truth), or ears wherewith to hear (the truth)? For verily blind are not the eyes but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.
22:47 And they demand of you to hasten on the punishment! While does never Allah fail His promise; and verily a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you number.
22:48 And how may of townships I did give a respite while (the people therein) were unjust, then I did seize them, and unto Me is the return (of all).
22:49 Say: �O people! I am only a plain warner unto you.
22:50 Then those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them is forgiveness and an honourable sustenance.
22:51 And those who strive against Our signs (to reject them), they shall be the inhabitants of Hell.
22:52 And We did not send before you any messenger or a prophet but when he desired, the Satan threw (some vanity) into his desire; but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in, then Allah does establish His signs, and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
22:53 So that He may make what the Satan casts a trial for those in whose hearts is disease and those whose hearts are hard, and verily the unjust are in a deep opposition.
22:54 And that those who have been given the knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord, so they may believe in it and their hearts may be lowly before it, and verily, Allah guides those who believe unto a straight path.
22:55 And those who disbelieve will not cease to be in doubt concerning it (Qur�?n) until the Hour (of Resurrection) overtakes them suddenly, or there comes to them the chastisement of a barren day.
22:56 On that Day the Sovereignty will be Allah�s; He will judge between them; and those who believe and do righteous deeds will be in gardens of bliss.
22:57 And those who disbelieve and reject Our signs, these, for them, shall be a disgraceful chastisement.
22:58 And those who migrate in the cause of Allah and are then slain or die, certainly will Allah provide them with a goodly sustenance, and verily Allah is the best of providers.
22:59 Certainly He will admit them into a place of entrance which they shall be well pleased with; and verily Allah is All-Knowing, Most Forbearing.
22:60 That (is so); and whoever retaliates with the like of that with which he has been wronged, and again he has been aggressed, most certainly Allah will aid him; verily Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
22:61 That is because Allah merges the night into the day and He merges the day into the night and that Allah is All-Hearing, All-seeing.
22:62 That is because Allah, He is the Truth, and that what they call upon besides Him, it is falsehood; and because Allah, He is the High, the Great.
22:63 Have you not seen that Allah has sent down water from the heaven then the earth becomes green? Verily Allah is All-Subtle, All-Aware.
22:64 To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and verily Allah, certainly He is the Self-Sufficient, the Praised.
22:65 Have you not seen that Allah has made subservient to you whatever is in the earth and the ships running in the sea by His command, and He withholds the heaven from falling on the earth, save with His permission? Verily, Allah is, for mankind, Full of Pity, Merciful.
22:66 And He it is Who gave you life, then He will cause you to die, and then will give you life (again). Verily man is ungrateful.
22:67 To every nation have We appointed rites which they are to perform, therefore they should not dispute with you about the matter, and you do invite (the people) unto your Lord; verily, you are upon a straight guidance.
22:68 And if they dispute with you, say: �Allah knows best what you do�.
22:69 Allah will judge between you on the Day of Judgment concerning that in which you used to differ.
22:70 Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the heaven and the earth? Verily this is (recorded) in a Book; verily this is easy for Allah.
22:71 And they worship, besides Allah, things for which He has sent no authority, and of which they have no knowledge, and for the unjust there shall be no helper.
22:72 And when Our clear signs are recited unto them, you recognize repugnance in the faces of those who disbelieve; (so that) well-nigh they rush upon those who recite to them Our Signs. Say: �Shall I inform you of what is worse than this? The Fire, Allah has promised it to those who disbelieve; and an evil destination it is!
22:73 O people! A parable is struck; so listen to it. Verily, those whom you call upon besides Allah can never create (even) a fly, though they should all gather for it; and should the fly snatch away anything from them, they could not take it back from it. Feeble are (both) the seeker and the sought!
22:74 They have not estimated Allah with the estimation that is due to Him. Verily Allah is Strong, Mighty.
22:75 Allah chooses messengers from among the angels and from among the men. Verily Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.
22:76 He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and unto Allah are returned all affairs.
22:77 O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves and worship your Lord, and do good; that you may be prosperous.
22:78 And strive hard in (the way of) Allah as you ought to strive for him. He has chosen you and has not laid upon you any hardship in religion; the faith of your father Abraham (is yours). He named you Muslims, both before and in this (Book), that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people; therefore establish prayer and pay the poor-rate and hold fast to Allah! He is your Guardian, how excellent the Guardian and how excellent the Helper!
