Dr. Munir Munshey rendition of Surah The Iron(al-Hadid)
57:1 Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, glorifies and praises Allah. He is the Mightiest, the Wisest
57:2 The kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. He gives life and death, and He is capable of doing everything
57:3 He is the First and the Last, the Perceptible and the Unseen. And He is well Aware of every single thing
57:4 He is the One Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods of time, then mounted the throne. He knows whatever enters the earth and whatever comes out of it, whatever comes down from heavens and whatever ascends up to it. He stays with you no matter where you happen to be. Allah watches over everything you do
57:5 The kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. All matters are referred to Allah (for decision)
57:6 He causes the night to settle over the day, and He causes the day to rise over the night. And He is fully Aware of everything, (even the innermost thoughts) that exists in the heart
57:7 Believe in Allah and His messenger and spend out of the wealth He has entrusted (in your care). There is a great reward for those of you who believe, and spend for His sake
57:8 What´s with you? Why do you not believe in Allah? The messenger urges you to believe in your Lord; and He has already secured a pledge from you, if you really are the believers
57:9 He it is Who revealed to His servant the clear proofs, (the explicit verses of the Qur´an), in order to bring you out of darkness into light. In fact, Allah is really very Merciful and very Kind to you
57:10 What is the matter with you? Why do you not spend for the sake of Allah? The heritage of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah! Those of you who spent and fought for the sake of Allah prior to victory (at Makkah), are not equal to others. They are far more exalted in status than those who spent and fought after (victory). Yet, Allah has promised excellent rewards to both. Allah is well Aware of what you do
57:11 Is there anyone who would advance Allah a good (high yielding) loan. He will increase it manifold and return it to you. (In addition), there is a great reward (for the lender)
57:12 That day, you will see that the light (emanating) from the believing men and women would run in front of, and to the right of them. (They would hear), "There is good news for you, to day!" (They shall have) the paradise _ rivers run right through it _ and they shall live there forever. That, in fact, is the greatest triumph
57:13 That day, the hypocrite men and women would say to the believers, "Look at us and let us borrow (and avail) a little of your light." (But) they would be told, "Turn back! Go find your own light!" Thereupon, a wall would be set in place between them and the believers. The gate (in the wall) would lock in (the believers and) the mercy and grace (of Allah) on the inside. While on the outside (of the enclosure) would be nothing but torture
57:14 They would call the believers (saying), "Were we not with you (in the life of this world)?" The believers would reply, "Of course, but you let yourself be tempted. You waited, (hesitated), and entertained doubts. Your hopes and expectations deceived (and lulled) you, until the decree arrived from Allah. The master deceiver, (the Shaitan), deceived you about Allah!"
57:15 And today, no ransom would be accepted from you or from those who had disbelieved. Fire is your _ and your companion´s _ abode. It is an evil end of the journey
57:16 Is it not time yet, that the hearts of the believers should stir with the mention of Allah, and the absolute truth that has come to them? Do not be like those who were given the scriptures earlier. After the passage of a long time, their hearts became hardened. Today, most of them are evildoers
57:17 You should know that Allah gives life back to the land after its death. We have already explained the signs to you. Perhaps you would understand
57:18 Indeed, there is a generous reward for the men and women who give charity, and advance a virtuous loan to Allah. He will increase it manifolds (and give them due credit)
57:19 The really honest and upright are those who believe in Allah and His messengers. According to Allah, they are the (true) witnesses. They shall have the reward and the light. While those who refute and reject Our signs are going to be the people of hell
57:20 You should know that the life of this world is (nothing but) fun and games _ merely play and pastime. (It consists of) the bragging and boasting among you about the adornments and embellishments (of your existence), and the abundance of your wealth and children. It is just like the shower of rain, which causes lush green (fields) that please the tillers. (But) later on, it dries up and you see it turn pale and become chaff. In the life-to-come, there is severe punishment (for the unbelievers), and forgiveness from Allah and His acceptance (for the believers). The life of this world is (nothing but) an illusive deception _ a brief enjoyment
57:21 Rush towards forgiveness of your Lord and the paradise (He has promised). Its expanse is like the vastness of the sky and the earth; and it has been prepared for those who believe in Allah and His messengers. That is the grace of Allah. He confers it upon whomever He wants! Allah is the Lord of great honor
57:22 No calamity (ever) strikes the earth _ or you _ that is not (already written) in the book of decrees. (Written) much earlier, before We cause the calamity to come about. That is really easy for Allah
57:23 So that you would not feel morose (and mournful) over matters that elude you. (And so that) you would not exult (and gloat) over what He grants you. (Indeed), Allah does not like the arrogant braggart
57:24 Those who are stingy, and advise others to be stingy! (Now), should anyone turn back (remember), Allah is Free of all want and Worthy of all praise
57:25 We have certainly sent Our messengers with clear proofs. We revealed to them the scriptures and the criteria (to distinguish the right from wrong), so that you may establish justice. We revealed iron (to mankind). It has considerable might and many uses for mankind. (So that) Allah may know who helps Him and His messengers without having seen (Him). Indeed, Allah is (very) Strong and Powerful
57:26 We sent Nooh and Ibraheem (as messengers), and We established the prophethood and the scriptures among their descendants. (Some) among them are rightly guided, but most of them are evildoers
57:27 Then, We had many messengers follow in their footsteps _ one after another. (Eventually), We sent , the son of Mary and gave him the Gospel. We instilled compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. (As for) the monasticism, We did not impose it on them. They invented it themselves. (By such means), they sought the acceptance and the pleasure of Allah. Yet, they did not abide by the demands of monasticism. We granted the reward to those of them who believed. Most of them, (however), are evildoers
57:28 Oh you who believe! Fear Allah and have faith in His messenger. He will grant you twice (the portion of) His mercy. He will grant you light by which you shall walk (along the straight path)! And He will grant you forgiveness! Indeed, Allah is oft-Forgiving, the most Merciful
57:29 So the people of the book may know that they do not have any control (or exclusive right) over (the distribution of) Allah´s bounties. In fact, the bounties rest in the hands of Allah, and He confers them upon whomever He wishes. Allah is the Lord of the highest honor
