Fatir (The Angels, Originator, The Creator)
as rendered by Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri

Dr. Mohammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendition of Surah The Angels, Originator, The Creator(Fatir)
35:1 All praise belongs to Allah alone, Who is the Creator of (all the infinities of) the heavens and the earth, and Who makes the angels messengers having two or three or four wings. He adds to (and expands) the creation as He wills. Surely, Allah is All-Powerful over everything.
35:2 Whatever of (the treasure of) His mercy Allah opens to mankind, there is none who can withhold it. And whatever He withholds, then after this there is none who may release it. And He alone is Almighty, Most Wise.
35:3 O people! Persistently remember the favour that Allah has bestowed on you. Is there any Creator other than Allah, Who may provide you sustenance from the heaven and the earth? There is no God but He. So where are you wandering, disorientated?
35:4 And if they reject you, many Messengers have been rejected before you. And all matters will be returned to Allah alone.
35:5 O people! Certainly, the promise of Allah is true. So let not the worldly life deceive you at all. Nor let the Arch-Deceiver, Satan, deceive you (in the Name) of Allah.
35:6 Assuredly, Satan is your enemy, so keep treating him as an enemy (being his adversary). He only calls his party to make them join the denizens of Hell.
35:7 There is a severe torment for those who disbelieve and there is forgiveness and a mighty reward for those who believe and keep doing pious deeds.
35:8 So what about him whose evil action has been made attractive to him, but he (actually) starts to consider it good? (How can he be like a virtuous believer?) Surely, Allah holds astray whoever He wills and guides to the straight path whoever He wills. (O Life of the universe!) Let not your soul waste away in grief for them. Surely, Allah is Best Aware of whatever they do.
35:9 And Allah alone sends winds that raise and build up clouds. Then We drive it (the cloud) towards some dry and dead land to water it. Then with that, We give life to the earth after its death. Similar will be the process of the rising (of the dead).
35:10 Whoever desires honour, then to Allah belongs all honour. The pure words ascend to Him alone, and He is the One Who elevates (the grades of) a pious deed. And those who are continually engaged in evil maneuvers, for them is severe punishment and their deceiving schemes will go void.
35:11 And Allah alone created you from clay (i.e., inorganic matter), then from a sperm drop, then He made you pairs. And no female conceives or gives birth but with His knowledge. And no aged man’s life is increased, nor is his age decreased, but (all this) is recorded in a Book (al-Lawh al-Mahfuz). That is certainly easy for Allah.
35:12 And two seas (or rivers) cannot be the same: this (one) is sweet, thirst-quenching and pleasant to drink and that (other) is salty and very bitter. And you eat fresh meat from each and bring forth ornaments (including pearls and corals) that you wear. And you see in them boats (and ships) that cleave through (the water), so that you may seek His bounty (through marine trade routes) and that you may become grateful.
35:13 He causes the night to pass into the day and the day to pass into the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon (to a system), each rotating for an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord. His is all the sovereignty. And the idols that you worship apart from Him do not own (even) the thin membrane of a date stone.
35:14 (O polytheists!) If you call upon them (the idols), they cannot hear your call. But if (supposing) they (the idols) hear, they cannot give you an answer. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will downright deny your setting up of partners with Allah. And none will make you aware like Allah, the Well Aware.
35:15 O mankind! You all are dependent upon Allah, and Allah is the One Who is Independent, Most Praiseworthy.
35:16 If He wills, He will destroy you and bring in a new creation.
35:17 And that is not at all difficult for Allah.
35:18 And no bearer of burden will bear another’s burden (of sins). And if someone heavily loaded calls (another) to share his load, nothing of his burden will be carried by him even though he be a close relative. (O Beloved!) You warn but those who fear their Lord unseen and establish Prayer. And whoever acquires purity does so to his own benefit. And to Allah is the return.
35:19 And the blind and the seeing cannot be alike;
35:20 Nor (can) the darkness and the light (be alike);
35:21 Nor the shade and the hot sun;
35:22 Nor can the living and the dead be alike. Surely, Allah makes whom He wills hear, and it is not your responsibility to make those hear who are (like those buried) in the graves* (i.e., you are not responsible to make the disbelievers accept what you say).
35:23 You are only a Warner.
35:24 Surely, We have sent you with the truth and guidance as a Bearer of good news and a Warner (for the Hereafter). And there is not a single Umma (community) but amongst whom there came (some) Warner.
35:25 And if they deny you, then surely the people before you have (also) denied. Their Messengers (also) came to them with clear signs and scriptures and the illumining Book.
35:26 Then I seized those disbelievers (with the torment). So how (awful) was My denial indeed!
35:27 Have you not seen that Allah sent down water from the sky? Then We brought forth with that the fruits which have different colours. And, similarly, in the mountains there are white and red streaks with a variety of shades and there are deep black (streaks) as well.
35:28 And likewise, there are various colours amongst men and beasts and animals. So only those of His servants who have knowledge (of these realities with a vision and outlook) fear Him. Surely, Allah is Almighty, Most Forgiving.
35:29 Surely, those who recite the Book of Allah and establish Prayer and spend secretly and openly in Our way out of what We have given them look forward to a trade (in the Hereafter) which will never run into loss,
35:30 So that Allah pays them their reward in full and blesses them more out of His bounty. Surely, Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Appreciative of thanks.
35:31 And the Book (the Qur’an) that We have revealed to you is the truth and confirms the former Books. Surely, Allah is Well Aware of His servants, All-Seeing.
35:32 Then We made those whom We chose from amongst Our servants (i.e., the Muslim Umma [Community]) the inheritors of the Book (the Qur’an). So of them are those who wrong their own souls, and of them are also those who are moderate, following the middle course, and of them are still those who excel in doing pious deeds by Allah’s command. This (excelling and becoming perfect) is but a great bounty (of Allah).
35:33 They shall enter the Gardens of Eden (Eden Paradise for eternal stay). Therein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their dress will be made of silk.
35:34 And they will say: ‘All gratitude and praise belong to Allah, Who has removed from us all grief. Surely, our Lord is Most Forgiving, Most Appreciative of gratitude,
35:35 Who has, out of His bounty, admitted us to a timeless abode wherein will touch us neither labour nor fatigue.’
35:36 And those who disbelieved, for them is the Fire of Hell. Neither will (death) be decreed for them that they should die, nor will anything of their torment be lessened. We pay back every disobedient person the same way.
35:37 And they will howl in Hell: ‘O our Lord, take us out (from here). We shall (now) do righteous works different from those (works) we used to do (before).’ (Allah will say:) ‘Did We not grant you long enough life during which whoever wanted to seek advice might reflect? And (moreover) the Warner too had come to you. So savour now the taste (of the torment), and there will be no helper for the wrongdoers.
35:38 Surely, Allah knows the unseen of the heavens and the earth. He is undoubtedly Well Aware of things (hidden) in breasts.
35:39 He is the One Who made you successors (of former communities) in the earth. So the one who disbelieves is to face the suffering of disbelief. And the denial of the disbelievers increases nothing for them in the sight of their Lord except His displeasure. And the infidels’ disbelief adds to them nothing but loss.
35:40 Say: ‘Have you seen your partner-gods you worship apart from Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth. Or do they have any share in (the creation of) the heavens? Or have We given them any Book so that they stick to its evidence? (Nothing at all!) In fact, the wrongdoers promise one another nothing but deception.
35:41 Surely, Allah is holding the heavens and the earth (through His control system) lest they should move away (from their respective locations and orbits). And if they start deviating, then none can hold them after Him. Surely, He is Most Forbearing, Most Forgiving.
35:42 And they used to swear solemn oaths by Allah that if a Warner came to them, they would certainly be far more on the straight path than any other community. But when the Warner (the Final Messenger of Allah [blessings and peace be upon him]) came to them, it only increased their aversion to the truth.
35:43 (They opted) to consider themselves the greatest in the earth and to maneuver evil schemes. And the evil schemes encompass only the schemer. So they are waiting (for nothing) but the pattern of (torment that seized) the bygone people. And you will not find any amendment in Allah’s Sunna. Nor will you find any divergence (and digression) in Allah’s Sunna.
35:44 Have they not travelled in the land and seen what was the end of the people who have passed before them? They were far more powerful than these people are. And nothing in the heavens or earth can make Allah helpless. Indeed, He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.
35:45 And if Allah were to seize people (by torment) for the (evil) deeds which they have earned, He would not spare any moving creature on the surface of the earth. But He is giving them respite till an appointed time. Then when their appointed time comes, Allah is Ever-Vigilant of His servants.
