22:1  O’ mankind, act piously toward your Lord! Indeed, the convulsion of the Hour is a tremendous thing.
22:2  On the day you witness it, every nursing mother will utterly forsake her infant, and every pregnant woman will cast off her burden. You will see people swaying as though they were drunk, while, in fact, they are not drunk. But the chastisement of Allâh is extremely severe.
22:3  And of the people is he who disputes concerning Allâh without knowledge, and follows every insubordinate devil.
22:4  It has been decreed that such devil- (Satan) - will make everyone who follows him to fall into deception and lead him to the punishment of the Burning Fire.
22:5  O’ mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then (you’ll need to know that) We have created you from dust, then from a semen-drop, then a clinging substance, then an embryonic lump, formed and unformed, in order to show You (Our Signs of power & glory). We cause what We intend to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then We bring you out as infants. Then We cause you to grow and become more mature. Among you, there is he who dies (young). And among you, there is he who is brought back to the worst part of life so that he may know nothing after once having knowledge. You see the earth barren, but when We send down thereon water, it stirs and swells, bringing forth every delightful pair of vegetation.
22:6  This is so, because Allâh is the (Ultimate) Truth: And He is the One Who gives life to the dead, and the One who is Most Capable of doing whatever He desires.
22:7  And Verily, the Hour is coming.- there is no doubt about it- and Allâh will definitely resurrect those who are in the graves.
22:8  And of the people is he who disputes concerning Allâh without knowledge, or spiritual illumination, or an enlightening book,
22:9  Twisting his neck (in pride) in order to prevent people from the path of knowing Allâh. For him in this worldly life is ignominy, and on the Day of Resurrection,We will make him taste the torment of the inferno.
22:10  That is because of what your hands have sent forth. And most certainly, Allâh never does the least wrong to His servants.
22:11  And of the people is he who worships Allâh upon the very edge. If it happens that good thing befalls him, he is satisfied therewith. But if an ordeal befalls him, he turns completely over. So He loses both this worldly life and the Hereafter. That is indeed the irreparable loss.
22:12  Instead of Allâh, he calls upon that which can neither harm nor benefit him. That is the extreme deviation from the plain path of truth.
22:13  He calls upon the one whose harm is nearer than his profit- how wretched the guardian and how wretched the associate!
22:14  Most assuredly Allâh will admit those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts (in the worldly life) into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. And most certainly, Allâh does whatever he is pleased to do.
22:15  And whoever thinks that Allâh won’t grant him- (Muhammad)- victory in this worldly life and in the Hereafter, then let him stretch a rope up to the ceiling, and let him sever it. Then let him see whether his scheme will remove that which enrages him.
22:16  And so We revealed the Qur'ān as irrefutable Signs. And Allâh certainly enlightens the path of those whom He wills.
22:17  Truly those who live by Faith, and those who are Jews, Sabians, Christians, Magians and the Polytheists- Allâh will indeed judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. And most certainly, Allâh is Witness over all things which they do.
22:18  Do you not see that whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, as well as the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, and all living creatures, as well as many humans make obeisance to Allâh? Yet there are many people on whom the punishment is rightly justified. And he whom Allâh humiliates, there is none to give him honour. And most certainly, Allâh does whatever he is pleased to do.
22:19  These are two opponents who have disputed over their Lord: But those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth, garments of Fire will be cut out for them, and Scalding Water will be poured over their heads,
22:20  Melting whatever is in their bellies, and (their) skins as well.
22:21  And there will be whips of iron for them.
22:22  Whenever, in their anguish, they strive to get out of it, they are driven back into it (and be told): "Taste the torment of the burning Fire!”
22:23  And most certainly, Allâh will admit those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts (in this worldly life) into Gardens underneath which rivers flow wherein they will be adorned with armbands of gold and pearls, and their garments therein will be of fine silk.
22:24  And they have been inspired to pursue the goodly words, and they have been inspired to walk in the Path of the All-Laudable
22:25  Indeed, (a painful doom awaits) those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth, and bar others from (following) the path of (knowing) Allâh and from (entering) the Sacred Mosque which We have made equally for all men, those who dwell therein and those who come from abroad. And whoever is inclined to commit impious and iniquitous deeds there, We will make him taste a painful punishment.
22:26  And (recall) when We showed Abraham the site of the (Sacred) House (and asked him) not to associate anything (in worship) with Me, and to purify My House for those who circumambulate it, those who stand in prayer and those who bow down and prostrate themselves in worship.
22:27  And proclaim to the mankind (the duty of) Hajj- (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel. They will come from every deep ravine
22:28  In order to witness all the benefits (provided) for them, and to celebrate the name of Allâh and declare His glory during the appointed days for what He has provided for them of (sacrificial) animals. So eat thereof and feed the wretched poor.
22:29  Then let them complete the rites prescribed for them, fulfil the vows which they may have made and circumambulate the Ancient House.
22:30  That (is the command). And whosoever venerates the sacred ordinances of Allâh, it will be better for him in the sight of his Lord. The cattle are made lawful unto you (for food) except for that which He has already mentioned to you. Now, therefore, shun the filth of the idols, and shun all words of falsehood.
22:31  Having a deep, pure, focused Faith in Allâh, don’t associate with Him anything. Whosoever associates any partners with Allâh - it is as though he had fallen from the sky, then the birds snatch him away, or the wind blows him off to a far distant place.
22:32  That (is the command). Whoever venerates the symbols of Allâh- it surely demonstrates the unfeigned piety of the hearts.
22:33  Therein are benefits for you for an appointed term; and afterward their lawful place of sacrifice is by the Ancient House.
22:34  For every Ummah, We have appointed a holy rite, that they may mention the name of Allâh over what We have provided for them of cattle (while offering them). Your God is the One and Only God, therefore you must hasten to submit to Him alone. And give good tidings to those who humble themselves.
22:35  Who, when Allâh is mentioned, their hearts tremble with awe, and who endure patiently whatever may befall them, and who establish the regular Prayer and expend of what We have provided them.
22:36  And the bulky sacrificial camels and cattle We have appointed for you as one of the symbols of Allâh. There is much good things in them for you. So mention the name of Allâh upon them when they are lined up in standing position for sacrifice. Then when they fall down lifeless on their sides, eat thereof, and feed the needy and the beggar. This is how We made them subservient unto you so that you may show gratitude.
22:37  It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allâh, but what reaches Him is the unfeigned piety towards Him. This is how We made them subservient unto you so that you may glorify Allâh for giving you the awesome opportunity for receiving salvation. So announce the glad tidings to those who pursue righteousness and perfection in Faith.
22:38  Verily, Allâh defends strongly those who live by Faith. Lo! He doesn’t demonstrates His own love for one who is perfidious and impious.
22:39  Permission is given to those who intend to fight because they were wronged. And Allâh alone is powerful enough to grant them victory.
22:40  (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes for no reason except that they say: ‘Our Lord is Allâh’. Had Allâh not driven back the people, some by the means of others, there had been destroyed Monasteries, Churches, Synagogues and Mosques wherein the Name of Allâh is much mentioned. And Allâh will surely grant victory to those who fight for His cause. And most certainly, Allâh is All- Powerful, Almighty.
22:41  Those who, if We give them authority in the land, will establish the regular Prayer, pay Zakāt, enjoin good and forbid evil. The consequence of all things belongs unto Allâh.
22:42  And if they deny you, so did the people of Noah before them, and also the tribes of ‘A'd and Thamūd,
22:43  And the people of Abraham, the people of Lot,
22:44  And the inhabitants of Midian. And Moses was denied, (too). But I gave respite to those who are spiritually dead and blind, then I seized them. And how dreadful was My condemnation and chastisement!
22:45  ( Imagine) so many towns we destroyed their inhabitants because they voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims. Now their dwellings lie in ruins- their wells abandoned and their lofty mansions deserted!
22:46  Have they not travelled through the land (to see the ruined cities) so that they may have hearts wherewith to understand, or ears wherewith to hear? Indeed, it is not the eyes that are blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that are blind.
22:47  Yet they (fervently) ask you to hasten the (divine) retribution! Allâh will not fail in His promise. And verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of your reckoning.
22:48  And how many a town to which I gave respite while it was iniquitous, then I seized it. And with Me lies the journey’s end.
22:49  Say: "O mankind! I am sent to you only to deliver a severe warning’.
22:50  Then (as for) those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous acts, they shall have forgiveness and abundant provision.
22:51  And (as for) those who strive to confute Our Enlightenment Quotes, they will be the Denizens of Hell.
22:52  And We didn’t send before you any Messenger or Prophet, except that when he recited (the scripture), Satan threw into it (some falsehood). But Allâh eliminates what Satan throws in. Then, Allâh entrenches His Revelations. And Allâh is All- Knowing, All-Wise.
22:53  (Allâh) makes whatever Satan throws in a trial for those in whose hearts there is doubt, and for whose hearts are so hardened. And verily, those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims are in open schism.
22:54  (Allâh has also permitted this) so that those who have spiritual gift of knowledge may know that this Qur’ān is the absolute truth from your Lord and so their faith (in Allâh may be invigorated by It) and their hearts may be humbled to Him. And verily, It is Allâh who shows those who live by Faith the right path.
22:55  Yet those who voluntarily and consciously refuse to Yield to the Truth will never cease to be in doubt concerning (the divine origin of) Qur’ān till the Hour (of death or resurrection) comes quickly and unexpectedly upon them, or the (divine) retribution of a barren day visits them.
22:56  The Absolute Sovereignty on the Day of Reckoning belongs unto Allâh (alone). He will judge between them. Those who live by Faith and strive to do righteous deeds will be in the Gardens of Bliss.
22:57  But those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth and deny Our Revelations will be subjected to humiliating punishment.
22:58  As for those who emigrated in the cause of Allâh and were slain or died, Allâh will definitely provide them with good provisions. Indeed, Allâh is the Best of the providers.
22:59  He will definitely admit them into a place with which they will be pleased. And indeed, Allâh is All-Knowing, Most Forbearing.
22:60  So shall it be. Whoever has retaliated with the like of that which he was afflicted and then has again been oppressed, Allâh will definitely support him. Indeed, Allâh is Oft-Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.
22:61  That is because Allâh causes the night to pass into the day, and the day to pass into the night. Indeed, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
22:62  That is because Allâh is the (Ultimate) Truth, and what they call upon other than Him is the falsehood, and Allâh is the Most High, the Most Great.
22:63  Do you not see that Allâh sends down water from the sky, then the earth becomes green? Indeed, Allâh is the Most Kind and Courteous, Well-Acquainted with all things.
22:64  Unto Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth. And verily, Allâh is the self-sufficient, Worthy of all praise.
22:65  Do you not see that Allâh has made subservient to you all that is on the earth, and ships that sail on the sea by His command? He withholds the sky from falling upon the earth except by His permission. Indeed, Allâh is Full of Compassion and Most Merciful to the people.
22:66  And He is the One who gives you life. Then, He causes you to die and will again give you life. Indeed, man is so ungrateful.
22:67  For every Ummah We appointed sacred rites which they perform, so let them not dispute with you in this matter. But invite them to your Lord. Indeed, for you're truly on the right path. .
22:68  If they dispute with you, then say: ‘Allâh has full knowledge of whatever you do.
22:69  And Allâh will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection regarding that wherein you used to differ ’.
22:70  Do you not know that Allâh has full knowledge of whatsoever is in the heaven and on the earth? Certainly this is in a book. That is indeed easy for Allâh.
22:71  Yet they worship besides Allâh others for which He has sent down no authority, and of which they have no knowledge. And there won’t be for those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned the Full Knowledge of the Truth in favour of their own whims any helper.
22:72  And when Our Verses are recited to them as conclusive evidence, you can easily recognize (the signs of) repudiation on the faces of those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth. They are nearly ready to make an assault on those who recite to them Our Verses. Say: ‘Shall I inform you of something worse than that? (It is) the Fire which Allâh has promised for those who persistently refuse to Yield to the Truth. And it is an evil journey’s end!’
22:73  O’ mankind, a parable is set forth, so listen to it (cautiously): Surely those whom you invoke besides Allâh cannot create a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. If the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to retrieve it from the fly. How helpless are (both) the seeker and the sought!
22:74  They don’t venerate Allâh in accordance with what is appropriate for Him, Indeed, Allâh is All-Strong, All- Mighty.
22:75  Allâh chooses Messengers from both Angels and people. Indeed, Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
22:76  He has full knowledge of what is before them, and what is behind them. To Allâh all matters are returned.
22:77  O’ you who live by Faith, bow down and prostrate yourselves, worship your Lord and strive to do good so that you may ultimately achieve a blissful life /or gain eternal salvation.
22:78  And strive hard for the cause of Allâh in accordance with what is required. He has chosen you and has not imposed on you an "undue" hardship in religion It is the faith of your father Abraham. It is ( Allâh) Who named you Muslims both before and in this (Qur’ān), so that the Messenger (Muhammad) may be a witness over you, and you be witnesses over mankind! So establish the regular Prayer, pay the Zakāt and hold fast to Allâh. He is your Guardian- what an excellent Guardian and what an excellent Helper!
