22:1  Oh people, beware of your Lord, for the trembling of the hour is a tremendous thing.
22:2  On the day when you see every nursing mother neglect what she nurses and every pregnant mother drop her burden and you see people as drunk when they are not drunk, but the punishment of Allah is severe.
22:3  And amongst people is he who argues about Allah without knowledge and follows every defiant devil.
22:4  It has been decreed for him that whoever befriends him, he will lead him astray and guide him to the punishment of the fire.
22:5  Oh people, if you are in doubt of the resurrection, then (consider that) We created you from soil, then from a sperm, then from an implant, then from a partly shaped piece of flesh in order to make it clear for you, and We retain in the wombs what We please until a fixed date, then We bring you out as a child, then let you reach your full strength, and amongst you is he who dies (early) and amongst you is he who ends up in the most feeble old age, so that he knows nothing after having had knowledge, and you see the earth lifeless, then when We send water onto it, it comes to life and swells and grows of every splendid species.
22:6  This is because Allah is the truth, and He revives the dead and He is able to do anything.
22:7  And the hour will come without doubt, and Allah will raise those in the graves.
22:8  And amongst people is he who argues about Allah without knowledge or guidance or enlightening book.
22:9  He turns away in order to lead away from the way of Allah. His is disgrace in this world and on the day of resurrection We make him taste the punishment of burning.
22:10  This is for the deeds you have sent ahead and that Allah does not wrong (His) servants.
22:11  And amongst people is he who serves Allah borderline, so if good befalls him, he is content with it, and if a trial befalls him, he turns away; he has lost the world and the hereafter - that is the clear loss.
22:12  He calls besides Allah on what does neither harm nor benefit him - that is the extensive error.
22:13  He calls on whose harm is more likely than his benefit - a bad protector and a bad friend.
22:14  Allah enters those who believe and do good work into gardens through which rivers flow, for Allah does what He pleases.
22:15  Whoever thinks that Allah will not help him (His messenger) in the world and the hereafter, let him find a means to ascend the heaven and try to cut off (the help), then see if his plot removes what enrages him.
22:16  And this is how We revealed clear signs and that Allah guides whom He pleases.
22:17  Those who believe and the Jews, the Sabeans, the Christians, the Zoroastrians and the idolaters, Allah will judge between them on the day of resurrection, for Allah is a witness to everything.
22:18  Do you not see that whoever is in the heavens and on earth prostrates to Allah, and the sun and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the trees and the creatures and many of the people? And many deserve the punishment, and whomever Allah humiliates, nobody can honour him, for Allah does what He pleases.
22:19  These are the two adversaries who dispute about their Lord, so those who reject (the truth), a garment of fire will be cut for them and boiling water will be poured over their heads.
22:20  It melts what is in their bellies and their skins.
22:21  And they will have iron chains.
22:22  Whenever they want to escape from it due to the distress, they will be returned to it: taste the punishment of burning.
22:23  Allah enters those who believe and do good work into gardens through which rivers flow; they are adorned there with bracelets of gold and pearls and their clothing there will be of silk.
22:24  And they are guided to good speech and are guided to the path of the Praiseworthy.
22:25  Those who reject (the truth) and divert from the way of Allah and the sacred mosque which We have placed for people, both the resident and the visitor - whoever wants to incline to wrongdoing there, We make him taste a painful punishment.
22:26  And when We provided Ibrahim (Abraham) with the location of the house: do not associate anything with Me and purify My house for those who go around, and those who stand (in prayer) and those who bow in prostration.
22:27  And announce to people the pilgrimage, they will come to you on foot and on every conveyance, they will come from every distant direction.
22:28  In order to witness benefits for them and remember the name of Allah on known days over the domestic cattle He has provided for them, so eat of it and feed the unfortunate poor.
22:29  Then they complete their rituals and fulfil their pledges and go round the ancient house.
22:30  This is how it is, and whoever honours the prohibitions of Allah, it is better for him with his Lord, and you are permitted the cattle except that which has been revealed to you, so shun the abomination of idols and shun false speech.
22:31  Sincerely devoted to Allah without associating anything with Him, and whoever associates anything with Allah, it is as if he falls out of the sky and the birds snatch him or the wind blows him to a remote place.
22:32  This is how it is, and whoever honours the rites of Allah, it is from the awareness of the hearts.
22:33  They contain benefits for you until a fixed date, then they are delivered to the ancient house.
22:34  And to every community We have given a sacrifice to mention the name of Allah over that which We have provided them with from the domestic cattle, so your Lord is a single god, so submit to Him and give good news to those who are humble.
22:35  Those who when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and those who bear patiently with what afflicts them, and those who keep up prayer and spend from what We have provided for them.
22:36  And We have made the fattened sacrificial animals signs of worship from Allah for you, you have (much) good in them, so mention the name of Allah over them when they are lined up. Then when their sides fall, eat from them and feed those who are content and those who ask; this is how We made them of service to you so that you would be grateful.
22:37  Neither their meat nor their blood reaches Allah, but your awareness reaches Him; this is how We made them of service to you so that you exalt Allah for having guided you, and give good news to those who do good.
22:38  For Allah defends the believers, for Allah does not love any faithless rejecter (of the truth).
22:39  Permission is given to those who have been fought because they have been wronged, and Allah is able to help them.
22:40  Those who were expelled from their homes without right only because they say: our Lord is Allah. And if Allah did not repel some people by others, the monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques where Allah´s name is mentioned a lot would have been destroyed, but Allah helps those who help Him, for Allah is strong and mighty.
22:41  Those who when We establish them on earth keep up prayer and give Zakat and command good conduct and forbid wrongdoing, and the outcome of affairs belongs to Allah.
22:42  And if they deny you, then the people of Nuh (Noah) and ´Ad and Thamud denied before them.
22:43  And the people of Ibrahim (Abraham) and the people of Lut (Lot).
22:44  And the inhabitants of Madyan (Midian), and Musa (Moses) was denied, so I gave time to those who rejected (the truth), then I overtook them, and how was My rebuttal!
22:45  And how many wrongdoing towns did We destroy, so they are abandoned in ruins, and how many dried up wells and elevated castles?
22:46  Do they not travel on the earth with hearts that understand or ears that hear? The eyes do not go blind, but the hearts inside go blind.
22:47  And they ask you to hasten the punishment, and Allah does not break His promise. And a day with your Lord is like a thousand years of what you count.
22:48  And how many wrongdoing towns did I give time, then I overtook them, and to Me is the journey.
22:49  Say: oh people, I am a clear warner for you.
22:50  So for those who believe and do good work will be forgiveness and generous provision.
22:51  And those who strive to undermine Our signs will be the inmates of hell-fire.
22:52  And whenever We sent a messenger or prophet before you, the devil interfered with his recitation when he recited, then Allah cancels the devil´s interference, then Allah lays down His signs, and Allah is knowing and wise.
22:53  So that Allah makes the interference of the devil a test for those with a disease in their hearts and whose hearts are hardened, and the wrongdoers are far away (from the truth).
22:54  And so that those who have been given knowledge know that it is the truth from your Lord, so they believe in it and their hearts are humbled towards it, and Allah guides the believers to a straight path.
22:55  And those who reject (the truth) will remain in doubt about it until the hour comes upon them suddenly or the punishment of an endless day reaches them.
22:56  The kingdom on that day belongs to Allah, He judges between them, so those who believed and did good work will be in gardens of blessing.
22:57  And those who rejected (the truth) and denied Our signs, for those will be a humiliating punishment.
22:58  And those who migrated in the way of Allah and were then killed or died, Allah provides them with a good provision, for Allah is the best of providers.
22:59  We let them enter from an entrance they are pleased with, and Allah is knowing and gentle.
22:60  This is how it is, and whoever inflicts punishment comparable to what had been inflicted on him and is then overcome, Allah will help him, for Allah is lenient, forgiving.
22:61  This is because Allah blends the night into the day and blends the day into the night and Allah hears and sees.
22:62  This is because Allah is the truth, and whatever they call besides Him is falsehood and Allah is exalted and great.
22:63  Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the sky, then the earth becomes green, for Allah is kind and informed.
22:64  To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is on earth, and Allah is the rich and praiseworthy.
22:65  Do you not see that Allah makes whatever is on earth of service to you, and the ship sails on the sea by His command, and He prevents the sky from falling onto the earth except by His permission, for Allah is lenient and merciful with mankind.
22:66  And He is who gave you life, then He lets you die, then He revives you, but man rejects (the truth).
22:67  To every community We have given a sacrifice to observe, so let them not challenge you in the matter and call to your Lord, for you are on straight guidance.
22:68  And if they dispute with you, say: Allah knows best what you do.
22:69  Allah judges between you on the day of resurrection with regard to what you used to differ in.
22:70  Don´t you know that Allah knows what is in the heaven and on earth? All that is in a book, for that is easy for Allah.
22:71  And they serve besides Allah that which no authority has been sent to them for and which they have no knowledge about, and the wrongdoers have no helper.
22:72  And when Our clear signs are recited to them, you notice in the faces of those who reject (the truth) the dislike, they would almost attack those who are reciting Our signs to them. Say: Shall I inform you of worse than that? The fire, Allah has promised it to those who reject (the truth), and it is a bad destination.
22:73  Oh people, a likeness has been coined for you, so listen to it: those whom you call besides Allah cannot create a fly even if they combined their efforts to do so, and if the fly takes something off them, they cannot recover it from it; week is the seeker and the one sought.
22:74  They do not measure Allah´s true ability, for Allah is strong and mighty.
22:75  Allah selects from the angels messengers and from people, for Allah hears and sees.
22:76  He knows what lies before them and behind them and to Allah return all things.
22:77  Oh you believers, bow down and prostrate and serve your Lord and do good in order to succeed.
22:78  And strive in the way of Allah with true effort, He has chosen you and did not place any hardship on you in the religion, the persuasion of your father Ibrahim (Abraham); he called you Muslims (those who submit) before, and in this case the messenger will be a witness against you and you will be witnesses against mankind, so keep up prayer and give Zakat and hold on to Allah, He is your protector, the best protector and the best helper.
