The Study Quran rendition of Surah The Pilgrimage(al-Hajj)
22:1 O mankind! Reverence your Lord. Truly the quaking of the Hour is a tremendous thing.
22:2 On the day you see it, every nursing woman will forget what she nurses, and every pregnant woman will deliver her burden, and you will see mankind drunk, though drunk they will not be. Rather, the Punishment of God is severe.
22:3 And among mankind are those who dispute concerning God, without knowledge, and follow every defiant satan,
22:4 for whom it is decreed that, should anyone take him as a protector, he will cause him to go astray and guide him unto the punishment of the Blaze.
22:5 O mankind! If you are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, [remember] We created you from dust, then from a drop, then from a blood clot, then from a lump of flesh, formed and unformed, that We may make clear for you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for a term appointed. Then We bring you forth as an infant, then that you may reach maturity. And some are taken in death, and some are consigned to the most abject life, so that after having known they may know nothing. And thou seest the earth desiccated, but when We send down water upon it, it stirs and swells and produces every delightful kind.
22:6 That is because God is the Truth, and because He gives life to the dead, and because He is Powerful over all things,
22:7 and because the Hour is coming, in which there is no doubt, and because God will resurrect whosoever is in the graves.
22:8 And among mankind are those who dispute concerning God without knowledge, without guidance, and without an illuminating Book,
22:9 turning aside to cause others to stray from the way of God. Such shall have disgrace in this world, and We shall make him taste the punishment of the burning on the Day of Resurrection.
22:10 That is because of what your hands have sent forth, and because God wrongs not His servants.
22:11 And among mankind some worship God upon a brink: if good befalls him, he is content thereby, but if a trial befalls him, he is turned over upon his face, losing this world and the Hereafter. That is the manifest loss.
22:12 He calls, apart from God, upon that which neither harms him nor benefits him. That is extreme error.
22:13 He calls upon one whose harm is likelier than his benefit. What an evil ally, and what an evil friend!
22:14 Truly God will cause those who believe and perform righteous deeds to enter Gardens with rivers running below. Truly God does whatsoever He desires.
22:15 Whosoever thinks that God will not help him in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch out a rope to Heaven. Then let him sever it and see if his scheming removes that which enrages.
22:16 Thus do We send it down as clear signs, and thus does God guide whomsoever He desires.
22:17 As for those who believe, and those who are Jews, the Sabeans, the Christians, the Magians, and the idolaters, indeed God will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Truly God is Witness over all things.
22:18 Hast thou not considered that unto God prostrates whosoever is in the heavens and whosoever is on the earth, the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, and the beasts, and many among mankind? But for many the punishment has come due. Whomsoever God disgraces, none can ennoble. Truly God does whatsoever He will.
22:19 These two adversaries dispute concerning their Lord. As for those who disbelieve, garments of fire shall be cut for them, and boiling liquid shall be poured over their heads,
22:20 by which their innards and their skin will be melted.
22:21 And for them shall be hooked iron rods.
22:22 Whensoever they desire, in their grief, to leave it, they shall be returned unto it, while [being told], “Taste the punishment of the burning!”
22:23 Truly God will cause those who believe and perform righteous deeds to enter Gardens with rivers running below, adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearl, and therein their clothes will be of silk.
22:24 And they shall be guided unto that which is good in speech, and be guided unto the path of the Praised.
22:25 Truly those who disbelieve and turn from the way of God, and the Sacred Mosque which We have appointed for mankind—equal are those who dwell there and those who come from abroad—whosoever desires to deviate wrongfully therein, We shall cause him to taste a painful punishment.
22:26 And [remember] when We assigned for Abraham the place of the House, [saying], “Ascribe no partners unto Me, and purify My House for those who circumambulate, and those who stand, and those who bow and prostrate.
22:27 And proclaim the ḥajj among mankind: they shall come to thee on foot and upon all [manner of] lean beast, coming from all deep and distant mountain highways,
22:28 that they may witness benefits for them and mention the Name of God, during known days, over the four-legged cattle He has provided them. So eat thereof, and feed the wretched poor.
22:29 Then let them be done with their untidiness, and fulfill their vows, and circumambulate the Ancient House.”
22:30 Thus it is. And whosoever magnifies the sacred things of God, that is better for him in the eyes of his Lord. Cattle are permitted you, save that which is recited unto you. So shun the filth of idols, and shun false speech,
22:31 as ḥanīfs before God, not ascribing partners unto Him. And whosoever ascribes partners unto God, it is as if he fell from the sky and the birds snatched him, or the wind swept him away to a place far off.
22:32 Thus it is. And whosoever magnifies the rituals of God, truly that comes from the reverence of hearts.
22:33 You shall have benefits in them, for a term appointed. Thereafter their lawful place of sacrifice shall be at the Ancient House.
22:34 For every community We have appointed a rite, that they might mention the Name of God over the four-legged cattle He has provided them. Your God is one God; so submit unto Him, and give glad tidings to the humble,
22:35 whose hearts quiver when God is mentioned, and who bear patiently what befalls them, who perform the prayer, and who spend of that which We have provided them.
22:36 And We have placed the sacrificial camels for you among God’s rituals. There is good for you in them. So mention the Name of God over them as they line up. Then when they have fallen upon their flanks, eat of them, and feed the needy who solicit and those who do not. Thus have We made them subservient unto you, that haply you may give thanks.
22:37 Neither their flesh nor their blood will reach God, but the reverence from you reaches Him. Thus has He made them subservient unto you, that you might magnify God for having guided you. And give glad tidings to the virtuous.
22:38 Truly God defends those who believe. Truly God loves not any ungrateful traitor.
22:39 Permission is granted to those who are fought, because they have been wronged—and truly God is able to help them—
22:40 who were expelled from their homes without right, only for saying, “Our Lord is God.” Were it not for God’s repelling people, some by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein God’s Name is mentioned much, would have been destroyed. And God will surely help those who help Him—truly God is Strong, Mighty—
22:41 who, were We to establish them upon the earth, would perform the prayer, give the alms, and enjoin right and forbid wrong. And unto God is the end of all affairs.
22:42 And if they deny thee, the people of Noah denied before them, as did ʿĀd and Thamūd,
22:43 and the people of Abraham, and the people of Lot,
22:44 and the inhabitants of Midian, and Moses too was denied. But I granted the disbelievers a respite; then I seized them in punishment. And how, then, was the change I wrought!
22:45 How many a town have We destroyed while it did wrong, laying thus fallen upon their roofs! And [how many] an abandoned well and lofty palace!
22:46 Have they not journeyed upon the earth, that they might have hearts by which to understand or ears by which to hear? Truly it is not the eyes that go blind, but it is hearts within breasts that go blind.
22:47 They bid thee to hasten the punishment, though God will not fail His Promise. And truly a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of that which you reckon.
22:48 And how many a town did I grant respite while it did wrong. Then I seized it [in punishment], and unto Me is the journey’s end!
22:49 Say, “O mankind! I am only a clear warner unto you!”
22:50 And as for those who believe and perform righteous deeds, theirs shall be forgiveness and a generous provision.
22:51 But those who endeavor to thwart Our signs, they shall be the inhabitants of Hellfire.
22:52 And no messenger or prophet did We send before thee, but that when he had a longing, Satan would cast into his longing, whereupon God effaces what Satan cast. Then God makes firm His signs—and God is Knowing, Wise—
22:53 that He might make what Satan casts to be a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease, and those whose hearts are hard—and truly the wrongdoers are in extreme schism—
22:54 and so that those who have been given knowledge might know that it is the truth from thy Lord, and thus believe in it, and that their hearts be humbled before Him. And truly God guides those who believe unto a straight path.
22:55 Yet those who disbelieve remain in doubt over it, till the Hour comes upon them suddenly or there comes upon them the punishment of a barren day.
22:56 Sovereignty that Day shall be God’s; He will judge between them, and those who believe and perform righteous deeds shall be in Gardens of bliss.
22:57 And as for those who disbelieve and deny Our signs, theirs shall be a humiliating punishment.
22:58 And as for those who emigrate in the way of God and are then slain or die, God will surely provide them with a beautiful provision. And truly God is the best of providers.
22:59 He will surely cause them to enter an entrance with which they shall be content. And truly God is Knowing, Clement.
22:60 Thus it is. And whosoever retaliates with the like of that which he has suffered, and is then aggressed upon, God will surely help him. Truly God is Pardoning, Forgiving.
22:61 That is because God makes the night pass into the day and makes the day pass into the night, and because God is Hearing, Seeing.
22:62 That is because God is the Truth and what they call upon apart from Him is false, and because God is the Exalted, the Great.
22:63 Hast thou not considered that God sends down water from Heaven, and then the earth becomes green? Truly God is Subtle, Aware.
22:64 To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. And God is truly the Self-Sufficient, the Praised.
22:65 Hast thou not considered that God has made whatsoever is on the earth subservient unto you—and the ship sails upon the sea—by His Command? And He maintains the sky lest it fall upon the earth, save by His Leave. Truly God is Kind and Merciful unto mankind.
22:66 And He it is Who gave you life; then He causes you to die; then He gives you life. Truly man is ungrateful.
22:67 For every community We have appointed a rite they are to perform; so let them not argue with thee over the matter. And call to thy Lord. Truly thou art following straight guidance.
22:68 And if they dispute with thee, say, “God knows best what you do.
22:69 God will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein you used to differ.”
22:70 Knowest thou not that God knows whatsoever is in Heaven and on earth? Truly that is in a Book. Truly that is easy for God.
22:71 And they worship, apart from God, that for which He has sent down no authority, and that whereof they have no knowledge. And the wrongdoers shall have no helpers.
22:72 And when Our signs are recited unto them as clear proofs, thou seest denial upon the faces of those who disbelieve. They well-nigh pounce upon those who recite Our signs unto them. Say, “Shall I inform you of what is worse than that? The Fire God has promised to those who disbelieve. What an evil journey’s end!” s
22:73 O mankind! A parable is set forth, so hearken unto it! Truly those upon whom you call apart from God will never create a fly, even if they gathered together to do so. And if the fly should rob them of aught, they could not rescue it from it. Feeble are the seeker and the sought!
22:74 And they did not measure God with His true measure. Truly God is Strong, Mighty.
22:75 God chooses messengers from among the angels and from among mankind. Truly God is Hearing, Seeing.
22:76 He knows that which is before them and that which is behind them. And unto God are all matters returned. w
22:77 you who believe! Bow, prostrate, and worship your Lord! And do good, that haply you may prosper.
22:78 And strive for God as He should be striven for. He has chosen [for] you—and has placed no hardship for you in the religion—the creed of your father Abraham. He named you muslims aforetime, and herein, that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and that you may be witnesses for mankind. So perform the prayer and give the alms, and hold fast to God. He is your Master. How excellent a Master, and how excellent a Helper!
