Yunus (Jonah)
as rendered by Dr. Kamal Omar

Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah Jonah(Yunus)
10:1 A. L. R.      These are the signs of Al-Kitab-ul-Hakim
10:2 Did it become to mankind a wonder that We have sent Our Inspiration to a male adult from amongst themselves so that: “Warn mankind and give good news to those who have Believed — that for them is a right place with their Nourisher-Sustainer,” The disbelievers said: “This is indeed an evident sorcerer.”
10:3 Surely, your Nourisher-Sustainer is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six aeons, then He settled over the Throne. He (Himself) disposes off the affair. (There is) none from an intercessor except after His permission. That is, to you, Allah, your Nourisher-Sustainer; so pay obedience to Him. Then will you not take heed?
10:4 To Him is the place of return of you all. The promise of Allah is true. Surely, He initiates the creation; afterwards He will repeat it, so that He may reward those who have Believed and did righteous deeds, in justice. And those who have disbelieved: for them is a drink out of superbly hot (liquids) and a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve.
10:5 He it is Who appointed the sun as a brilliant light and the moon as a reflected light and set to it stages, that you might know the number of years and the reckoning (of time and periods). Allah did not create this but based on fact. He gives details to the Ayaat for a nation who know.
10:6 Verily, in the alternation of the night and the day, and what Allah created in the heaven and the earth are definitely proofs for a nation who pay obedience (to Him).
10:7 Verily, those who hope not for a meeting with Us and are fully pleased with the life of the present world and they became satisfied with it; and those: they are heedless to Our Ayaat,
10:8 those: their abode will be the Fire, because of what they used to earn (through their beliefs, concepts and deeds).
10:9 Verily, those who have Believed and did righteous deeds, their Nourisher-Sustainer will guide them through their Faith. Rivers will flow underneath them in Gardens of delight.
10:10 Their manner of invocation therein (will be) Subhanaka Allahumma (Glory be to You, beloved Allah!) and their greeting (to one another) therein (will be) Salam [Peace and tranquility (be from Allah over you)] and the closing (words) in their call (will be) that: Al-Hamd-o-Lillahe-Rabbil-Alamin.
10:11 And if Allah hastens for mankind the evil (outcome) (as would have been) their swiftness (of demand) for a good (out come), surely would have been settled to them their term (of respite). Then leave those who hope not for a meeting with Us, in their turmoil they would wander blindly.
10:12 And when a trouble or calamity touched a human being, he invoked Us while lying down on his side, or sitting, or standing. So as when We removed from him his trouble he slipped away as if he did not invoke Us for the trouble which touched him! Thus has become fair-seeming to the Musrifun what they used to do.
10:13 And indeed, We destroyed generations before you for what they transgressed. And came to them their Messengers with Al-Bayyinat but they were not (such) as to Believe. Thus We reward the nation of criminals.
10:14 Then We made you generations after generations in the earth after them, that We might see how you would work .
10:15 And when are recited to them Our Ayaat which are evidently manifest, said those who do not hope a meeting with Us: “Come to us with a Quran other than this or change it.” Say: “It suits not me that I may change it from the inclination of my ownself. I do not follow except what has been made evident to me. Verily, I fear, if I disobeyed my Nourisher-Sustainer, punishment on the great Day.”
10:16 Say: “If Allah had willed I would not have recited it to you, nor He had made it known to you. So, verily, I have stayed amongst you a lifetime before this. Do you then not use your sense?”
10:17 So, who is a bigger transgressor than that who forged a lie against Allah or denied His Ayaat? Surely it (is that) the criminals do not become successful.
10:18 And they obey besides Allah that hurts them not, nor gives them (any) profit and they say: “All these are intercessors to us unto Allah.” Say: “Do you inform Allah of that which He knows not in the heavens, and nor on the earth? He became glorified and became very High in comparison to what they assign as partners (to Him).
10:19 And mankind is not but one single community, then they (due to various reasons) differed (among themselves). And if a commitment was not already given from your Nourisher-Sustainer, surely (the matter) would have been settled between them regarding what they differ therein.
10:20 And they say: “Why not has been sent to him a Sign from his Nourisher-Sustainer?” So, Say: “Definitely, what is unseen belongs to Allah, so wait you, verily I am with you, from amongst those who wait.”
10:21 And when We made mankind taste mercy after the adversity that afflicted them, then for them (the evil pastime is) to plot against Our Ayaat. Say: “Allah is Swifter in plotting (against the criminals). Certainly Our messengers (angels) put to record whatever you plot (against Islam).”
10:22 He it is Who enables you to travel through the land and the sea, till when you are in the ships and (the vessels) started sailing with these (passengers) with a favourable wind and (riders) became very happy with this (vessel), (there) came to this (vessel) a wind, very stormy and came to them the waves from all positions and they became sure that it (the vessel) is overwhelmed and encircled along with them, they invoked Allah, keeping pure for Him the Religion: “Surely if you rescued us from this, truly, we become out of those who are grateful."
10:23 So when He rescued them, immediately they rebel in the earth without any right. O you mankind! Definitely, what is your rebellion (it is) against your ownselves — a brief enjoyment of this worldly life, afterwards unto Us is your place of return; then We shall inform you about that which you used to do.
10:24 Certainly, what is the example of this worldly life (it is) like the rain, We sent it down from the direction of the sky, then got intermingled with it the produce from the earth of which eat humans and cattle, until when the earth adopted its beautiful adornment and got fully beautified and its custodians became sure that they are full controllers over it, Our command reached it by night or by day, then We made it like a clean-mown harvest as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus We give details to the Ayaat for a nation who think and ponder.
10:25 And Allah calls to the home of peace (through His teachings in Al-Kitab) and guides whom He thinks proper to the Permanent Path.
10:26 For those who have done good in perfection is the perfect reward and much more. And humiliation shall not cover their faces and nor disgrace. They are the companions of Paradise. They, therein (are) dwellers.
10:27 And those who have earned evil deeds — the recompense of an evil deed is the like thereof, and disgrace shall cover them, there is not for them against Allah a defender. As it were, their faces got covered from the portion of the night that completely darkens (the sight). They are companions of the Fire. They will be dwellers therein.
10:28 And the Day We shall gather them all together, then We shall say to those who did set partners: “(Stop) at your place! You and your partners.” Then We broke the link between them. And their partners (whom they assigned in the Dominion of Allah) said: “You had not been paying obedience to us.
10:29 So Allah became Sufficient as a Witness between us and between you. Definitely, we had been truly unaware of your obedience (to us).”
10:30 Then and there every Nafs will test what she sent before and they were brought back to Allah, their rightful Maula (Protector). And vanished from them whatever they had been inventing in falsehood.
10:31 Say: “Who provides you sustenance from the direction of the sky and from the earth? Or who owns the hearing and the sights? And who brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living? And who disposes the affair?” Then immediately they say: “Allah.” Then say: would you, then, not pay obedience (to Allah)?”
10:32 Such is Allah, your Nourisher-Sustainer in truth. So what else (could there be) after the truth except losing the track? Then where are you being dispersed (away from the true-path)?
10:33 Thus proved true the statement of your Nourisher-Sustainer against those who disobeyed that they will not Believe.
10:34 Say: “Is there of your (assigned) partners that may initiate the creation (and) afterwards may repeat it?” Say: “Allah initiates the creation (and) afterwards shall repeat it. So how do you indulge in falsehood?”
10:35 Say: “Is there of your (assigned) partners that may guide to the truth?” Say: “Allah guides to the truth. Is then That Who guides to the truth more worthy That He should be obeyed, or he who himself gets no guidance except when he is provided guidance. Then what is to you? How do you make opinion?”
10:36 And the majority of them do not follow but (only) conjecture. Certainly, conjecture does not make (one) unconcerned regarding the truth to any extent. Surely, Allah is All-Aware of what they do.
10:37 And this Al-Quran is not such as could be falsely produced from (somebody) besides Allah; rather (it is) a verification and confirmation to what is in its two hands and details to Al-Kitab [the word 'Qur'an' means some thing which is read by emitting words. When Allah's Book is subjected to Qir'at, it confirms what is available in the written copies of the scripture already available anywhere in the world, and it also contains details to all the verdicts available in the Book]. There is no doubtful matter or interpolation therein, (it is) from the Nourisher-Sustainer of the worlds.
10:38 Do they say: ’ he has forged it ’ ? Say: ’Then come with a Surah similar to it and call upon whom you could besides Allah if you are truthful.”
10:39 Nay! They have denied which they did not comprehend in the knowledge thereof, and yet the true understanding of it has not come to them. The same way denied those who (went) before them. Then ponder what was the final end of the transgressors.
10:40 And of them is that who Believes therein, and of them is that who does not believe therein. And your Nourisher-Sustainer knows more about the Mufsidun.
10:41 And if they have denied you, then say: “For me is my action and for you is your action. You are absolved-ones from that which I do and I stand absolved from that which you do.”
10:42 And out of them are those who listen to you. Could you then make the deaf to hear even though they had been (those who) do not use intellect?
10:43 And among them is that who looks at you. Could then you give guidance to the blind even though they had not been using (their) sight?
10:44 Truly! Allah wrongs not mankind to any extent but mankind wrong their own selves.
10:45 And the Day He gathers them as if they stayed not except an hour of a day. They will recognise each other amongst them. Definitely, got ruined those who denied the meeting with Allah and they did not become guided.
10:46 And whether We show you (in your lifetime) some of what We promise them or We cause you to die — then unto Us is their returning place. Further on Allah is a Witness over what they do.
10:47 And to every Ummah (there is) a Messenger. So when their Messenger has come, (their case) got settled amongst them in justice. And they will not be wronged.
10:48 And they say: “When this Promise (will be implemented) if you are those who speak the truth?”
10:49 Say: “I possess no power of harm, and nor of benefit for my Nafs except what Allah thought proper. For every Ummah (there is) a term appointed. When their appointed term approached, then they do not delay by an hour and nor they advance (even a moment).”
10:50 Say: “Have you (ever) pondered if His punishment reached you by night or by day? What is that portion thereof the Mujrimun make haste (for that)?
10:51 Whether at that time when, what has already befallen, you developed Faith therein? What (happened to you? Is it) at this stage (that you have developed your Belief?) And indeed, you used to hasten it on (to yourself).”
10:52 Then it was said to those who transgressed: “Taste you the everlasting punishment. Would you be rewarded (any thing else) except what you used to earn?”
10:53 And they ask you for opinion and interpretation: “Whether it (i.e., the Day of Resurrection and punishment and reward therein) is a reality?” Say: “Of course! My Nourisher-Sustainer is (Himself) The Witness. Definitely, it is a sure reality and you are not of those who can obstruct (its appearance).”
10:54 And if there had been with every Nafs that has transgressed, whatever is on the earth, she would have offered it as a ransom (to be redeemed of her transgression). And they kept hidden the regret when they saw the punishment; and the matter got decided amongst them in full justice. And they will not be wronged (on the Day of Resurrection and Accountability).
10:55 Behold! Surely, belongs to Allah whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Beware! truly, the Promise from Allah is true, but the majority among them do not know.
10:56 He (it is Who) gives life and brings death; and unto Him you shall be returned.
10:57 O you mankind: “Definitely, has come to you Mauizah from your Nourisher-Sustainer and Shifah le-ma-fi-as-Sudoor and Huda and Rahmah for the Believers.
10:58 Say: “In the Bounty of Allah and in His Mercy through this, they must rejoice. That is better than what they amass.
10:59 Say: “Have you (ever) pondered? What Allah has provided you as provision, so you have (on your own) made out of it lawful and unlawful.” Say: “Has Allah permitted you or do you invent a lie against Allah?”
10:60 And what is the idea of those who invent a lie against Allah about the Day of Resurrection? Truly, Allah is full of grace to mankind but most of them do not pay thanks.
10:61 In whatever involvement you may be and whatever you may recite thereof from Qur’an — and you do not produce any action but We are over you as Witnesses when you people are involved in it. And nothing hides (itself) from your Nourisher-Sustainer (not) even the weight of a particle on the earth and nor in the heaven — and nor smaller than this and nor larger — but (it is recorded) in a manifest record.
10:62 Behold! Verily, the auliya of Allah (protectors and helpers for His System of Guidance) — there is no fear over them and nor they shall go in grief,
10:63 those who Believed and they had been paying obedience;
10:64 for them are glad tidings in the life of this world and in the Hereafter. There is no changing for the statements of Allah. This: it is the supreme achievement.
10:65 And let not their utterance grieve you. Definitely, the honour — all of it, is for Allah (Alone). He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
10:66 Behold! Verily, to Allah belongs whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is on the earth. And do not obey those who invoke besides Allah, the partners. They do not obey except conjecture and nothing they (do) but they harbour delusions.
10:67 He it is Who has appointed for you the night so that you may rest therein, and the day as one which makes things visible. Surely, in this are indeed signs for a nation who listen.
10:68 They (who have deviated from the Book of Allah) said: “Allah has begotten a son.” His Glory keeps Him absolved of it. He is Free of all needs. To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. For this (false accusation) you have no proof with you. Do you say concerning Allah what you know not?
10:69 Say: “Verily, those who forge a lie against Allah will not achieve success" —
10:70 a brief enjoyment in this world, then unto Us will be their returning place; then We shall make them taste the severest punishment because they used to disbelieve.
10:71 And reproduce before them the news of Nuh when he said to his nation: “O my nation! If it came very hard on you: my presence and my missionary pursuit with the help of Ayaatillahe, then in Allah I have put my trust. So bring together your stratagem and your accomplices; then your conspiracy should not remain unto you ill-defined, then pronounce your sentence against me and do not give me respite.
10:72 So if you have turned away (from the Message of Allah in His Al-Kitab) then (do realise) I have not asked you for any reward. My reward is not (due on anyone) except on Allah, and I have been commanded that I may become out of the Muslims.”
10:73 So they denied him. So We delivered him and those with him in the Ark and We appointed them as the successor-generations (who inherited the earth) while We drowned (in the great deluge all) those who belied Our Ayaat. Then ponder how was the final end of those who were warned.
10:74 Then We raised after him Messengers over the (future) nation of these people, so they came to them with Al-Bayyinat, but they would not Believe what they had already rejected beforehand. Thus We put up a seal on the hearts of those who break the limits.
10:75 Then We raised after them Musa and Harun to Firaun and his chiefs with Our Signs. But they behaved arrogantly and they happened to be a nation of criminals.
10:76 So when came to them Al-Haqq from Us, they said: “Without doubt, this is surely magic, fully manifest.”
10:77 Musa said: “Do you say about Al-Haqq when it has reached you: Is this magic? But the magicians never succeed.”
10:78 They said: “Have you come to us to deviate us from that we found following it our fathers; and you desire that the greatness (and position) in the land becomes restricted to you two? And we are not (becoming) Believers for you two.”
10:79 And Firaun said (to his administrators): “Produce before me every expert magician.”
10:80 And when the magicians came, Musa said to them: “Place on the ground whatever you want to put down.”
10:81 Then when they dropped (their items) on the ground, Musa said: “What you came alongwith is sorcery. Surely, Allah, very soon, will prove it false. Verily, Allah does not reform the work of Al-Mufsidun.
10:82 And Allah will establish Al-Haqq as true with the help of His statements (therein) even if the Mujrimun felt aversion.
10:83 But did not Believe in Musa (anyone) except the younger generation of his nation because of the fear of Firaun and their chiefs, lest they should put them to persecution and torture; and verily, Firaun behaved as an arrogant tyrant on the earth, and indeed he was surely of the Musrifun (those who breahead of state the limits, indulge in transgression).
10:84 And Musa said: “O my nation! If you have developed Faith in Allah then put your trust in Him if you are (really) Muslims.”
10:85 So they said: “In Allah we have put our trust. Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Make us not a trial for the nation of the transgressors.
10:86 And save us by Your Mercy from the nation of disbelievers.”
10:87 And We sent inspiration to Musa and his brother that: 'Both of you specify for the nation of you two the houses in Egypt. And regard your (such) houses as Qiblah and establish salat and give glad tidings to the Believers.’
10:88 And Musa said: “Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Surely, You have bestowed Firaun and his chiefs splendour and wealth in the life of this world, our Nourisher-Sustainer, so that they may lead (men) astray from your Path? Our Nourisher-Sustainer! Destroy their possessions and harden their hearts, so that they may not Believe until they see the painful torment.”
10:89 (Allah) said: “Verily, the invocation of you both has been accepted. So you both stick to your stand and you two do not follow the path of those who do not know (the requirements of Faith).”
10:90 And We separated the sea with Bani Israiel, and Firaun and his forces chased them in rebellion and enmity (against Allah and Islam) until when drowning overtook him, he said: “I have Believed that it (is a fact that there is) no god except That in Whom the Bani Israiel have developed Faith and I am out of the Muslims.”
10:91 (Allah made him realise): “At this stage? And definitely you refused to pay any heed before, and you remained of the Mufsidun.
10:92 So this day We deliver you as your (dead) body (naturally mummified) so that you may become a sign to that who came (in the world) after you. And verily, the majority among mankind are definitely heedless of Our Signs.”
10:93 And indeed We settled Bani Israiel in an honourable settlement and gave them provisions out of Tayyibat and they differed not until the knowledge came to them. Surely, Allah will pronounce judgement among them on the Day of Resurrection in that in which they used to differ.
10:94 So if you are in doubt concerning that what We have sent towards you, then ask those who are reading Al-Kitab since before you. Surely, has come to you Al-Haqq from your Nourisher-Sustainer. So be not of those who doubt.
10:95 And be not of those who belied the Ayaat of Allah, for then you become out of those who lose.
10:96 Truly! Those against whom has proved true the statement of your Nourisher-Sustainer, will not Believe,
10:97 even if all the signs reached them, until they see the painful torment.
10:98 Then why there went not any habitation that might have Believed, (and) then her Faith might have benefited her — except the nation of Yunus. As they accepted Faith, We removed from them the torment of disgrace in the life of this world and We provided them all provisions for a while.
10:99 And if had willed your Nourisher-Sustainer, would have Believed whoever is on the earth, all of them enmasse. Then, would you compel mankind until they become Believers?
10:100 And it is not (possible) for any Nafs that she may develop Faith except by the permission of Allah. And He places Rijs on those who do not use sense.
10:101 Say: “Ponder and think what is that which is in the heavens and the earth. And the Signs and warnings do not benefit a nation who do not Believe.
10:102 Then do they wait except like the days of those who passed away before them? Say: “So, wait, I am too, with you, among those who wait.”
10:103 Then (at the critical moment) We save Our Messengers and those who have Believed. In this way, it is incumbent upon Us: We provide a safe passage to the Believers.
10:104 Say: “O you mankind! If you are in doubt as to my Religion, then (know that) I do not obey those whom you worship besides Allah. But I pay obedience to Allah Who causes you to die and I am commanded that I may become out of the Believers;
10:105 and that: set your face (devote full attention) to the Unitarian Religion and be not out of the Mushrikun;
10:106 and invoke not besides Allah that who gives not benefit to you and gives not harm to you. So if you did, then surely you, in such a situation, are from the transgressors.
10:107 And if Allah touches you with hurt, then there is not one who can remove it except He (Himself); and if He intends for you any good, then there is not one who can repel His Grace. He reaches therewith whom He thinks proper amongst His Ibad. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, the continuously Merciful."
10:108 Say: “O you mankind! Surely, has come to you Al-Haqq from your Nourisher-Sustainer. So whosoever receives guidance, then surely it is that he guides his own self. And whosoever went astray, then surely it is that he goes astray against her(i.e., nafs). And I am not over you as a wakil (disposer of affairs).
10:109 And follow whatever has been inspired unto you and be patient till Allah pronounces judgement. And He is the Best of judges.
