22:1  O humankind! Revere your Lord. Truly the convulsions of the hour is a tremendous thing.
22:2  The day you will see it [you will see that] every nursing [mother] will forget about that which it is nursing and everyone who is carrying a load will lay down her load and you will see the human beings inebriant but they are not inebriant but it is Allah’s punishment which is formidable.
22:3  And from mankind are those who argue about Allah without knowledge and follow every wayward Satan.
22:4  Upon him [Satan] it is written that whosoever takes him as an ally, he indeed is going to misguide him and will guide him to the punishment of the blazing fire.
22:5  O humankind! If you are in doubt concerning the resurrection Lo! We have created you from dust, then from liquid, then from a clot of blood, then from a piece of flesh fully formed and not fully formed so that We may show you and then We cause to stay in the wombs that which We please to an appointed term. Then We bring you forth as babes so that you may attain the full strength of your growth. And among you are those whose souls are taken [in infancy] but also among you are those who are brought back to the most abject of the age so that after knowing he comes to know nothing. And you see the earth lifeless but when We send down the water on it Lo! It begins to shake and swell and bring forth a beautiful pair from every kind of plant
22:6  That is so because Allah is the truth and that He is the one who gives life to the dead and that He it is who has power over everything.
22:7  And that the hour is coming there is no doubt in it and that Allah will raise those who are in the graves.
22:8  And among humankind are those who argue about Allah without any knowledge and without any guidance and without an enlightening book.
22:9  Turning his neck in arrogance so that he misguide from the path of Allah. For him there will be humiliation in the life of this world and on the day of resurrection We will make him taste the punishment of the burning fire.
22:10  This is because of that which your two hands have sent forth and truly Allah is not a doer of wrong to the slaves.
22:11  Among men there are such who worship Allah on one side. If good happens to him, his heart is at rest thereby but if trial befalls him, he falls back on his face thus he loses the life of this world and the hereafter. That is the most obvious loss.
22:12  He calls besides Allah that which does not harm him neither does it benefit him. That is the misguidance far astray.
22:13  He calls on such whose harm is closer than his benefit. Truly woeful is the master and truly woeful is the folk.
22:14  Truly Allah will make enter those who believe and did righteous deeds to gardens under which the rivers flow. Truly Allah does that which He wills.
22:15  Whoever thinks that Allah will never help him in this life and in the hereafter, let him then extend any other rope to the heaven and then let him cut himself loose and let him see whether his plan will do away with that which is outraging him.
22:16  And thus We have sent it down as clear signs and truly Allah guides whom He wills.
22:17  Truly those who believe [in the entire book] and those who take guidance from the Torah and the Sabians and the Christians and the Magians and those who ascribe partners to Allah, truly Allah will judge between them on the day of resurrection. Truly Allah is a witness over all things.
22:18  Do you not see that it is Allah for whom prostrate whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth and the sun and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the tree and the animals and many from the humankind? But many are those on whom the sentence of punishment has been passed and whoever Allah humiliates, there is no one to honour him. Truly Allah does what He pleases.
22:19  These are two contender [groups] contending about their Lord. As for those who disbelieve, for them is cut a garment out of fire and upon their heads will be poured scalding water.
22:20  With it melts all that is in their body and all their skins.
22:21  And for them there will be rods of iron.
22:22  And every time they wish to get out from it out of their agony, they will be turned back in it [and it will be said to them], “Taste you the punishment of burning fire.”
22:23  Truly Allah will cause to enter those who believed and did righteous deeds into gardens under which the rivers flow, they will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and with pearl and their garment therein will be of silk.
22:24  They were guided to the good one from the speech and they were guided to the path of the All-praiseworthy.
22:25  Truly those who disbelieve and hinder people from the way of Allah and from the sacred mosque which We have made open to all men, the one who dwells therein, as well as the one from abroad. But whosoever intends to commit an act of perversion therein by ascribing partners to Allah, We will make him taste from a painful punishment.
22:26  And when We designated for Abraham the place for the house [and We said to him], “Do not ascribe anything as a partner to Me and cleanse My house for those who circumambulate and for those who stand steadfast in prayer and for those who are bowing, prostrating
22:27  and announce the pilgrimage unto the mankind they will come to you on foot and on every courser they will come out of every deep narrow path.”
22:28  So that they may witness benefits for them and proclaim the names of Allah through days well-appointed over the heads of cattle which He has provided them so eat from it and feed the miserable poor.
22:29  Then let them complete their rituals and let them fulfill their vows and let them circumambulate around the ancient house.
22:30  And it is so that whoever shows reverence for things consecrated by Allah that indeed is best for him in the eyes of his Lord. And the cattle have been made lawful to you except that which is related to you [as unlawful in the book]. Therefore keep away from the loathsome impurities of the idols and keep away from the word of false witnessing.
22:31  Devoted to the worship of Allah and not ascribing partners to Him. But whoever ascribes partners to Allah, it is as though he has fallen down from the heaven and the birds snatch him or the wind carry him to a far distant place.
22:32  So it is that whoever reveres the insignia of Allah, that truly comes from the reverence of Allah that is in the hearts.
22:33  In them are benefits for you till an appointed term and their final station is at the ancient house.
22:34  Unto every nation We have assigned the rituals of sacrifice so that they may proclaim the names of Allah over that which He has provided them from the heads of cattle. Therefore your God is one deity so surrender your total being only for Him and give glad tidings to those who are most humble.
22:35  Those whose hearts overawe when Allah is mentioned and who bear with patience that which afflicts them and who establish the prayer while they spend from that which We have provided for them.
22:36  And the camel We have appointed it for you as part of insignia of Allah in them there is good for you. Therefore proclaim the name of Allah when they line up for sacrifice. And then when their sides fall down on the ground then eat from them and feed the [poor] ones who are content and the one who are hard pressed by adversity. Thus We have made them subservient to you so that you may offer gratitude [to Allah].
22:37  Their flesh never reaches Allah nor their bloods but the God reverence from you reaches up to Him. Thus He has made them subservient to you so that you may extol the grandeur of Allah for the reason that He has guided you and give glad tidings to the ones who act in excellence.
22:38  Truly Allah defends those who believe. Truly Allah loves not anyone who is treacherous, ungrateful.
22:39  Permission [to fight] is given to those who are fought against because they are wronged and truly Allah is able to give them victory.
22:40  It is they who are driven out of their homes with no right just because they say, “Our Lord is Allah.” Had it not been that Allah do push back one set of men by another, truly temples and churches and synagogues and mosques would have been pulled down wherein Allah’s name is mentioned in abundance. Truly Allah will help those who help Him and Truly Allah is All-strong, All-mighty.
22:41  It is those who when We establish them in the earth, they establish the prayer and they give out the sanctifying dues and they enjoin [others] to do righteous things and forbid [them] from doing wicked things and for Allah is the ending of all the matters.
22:42  And if they belie you, truly before them belied the people of Noah and ‘Ad and Samood
22:43  and the people of Abraham and the people of Lot
22:44  and the inhabitants of Madian and Moses was belied and I gave respite to the disbelievers and then I seized them. How then was my disguised plan?
22:45  How many a townships have We destroyed while they were wronging their own souls and here it is lying thrown on their heads down and [how many] abandoned wells and how many a towering palaces
22:46  Have they not peregrinated in the land so that they may come to acquire hearts by which to understand or ears by which to hear? Lo! It is not the eyes in the head that go blind rather what goes blind are the hearts that are in the bosoms.
22:47  And they ask you to bring the punishment in haste but Allah will never fail His promise. For a day with your Lord is like a thousand years from that which you count.
22:48  And how many townships I gave them respite while they were wronging their own souls then I seized them and to Me is the place of final ending.
22:49  Say, “O mankind, I am but a manifest warner for you.”
22:50  As for those who believe and do righteous deeds for them is forgiveness and a most gracious provision.
22:51  And those who endeavor to defy Our signs, they are companions of the hellfire.
22:52  And We never sent before you a messenger or a prophet except that when he formulates a good wish, Satan will throw [doubt] in his wish but Allah abrogates that [doubt] which Satan casts and then Allah confirms His signs and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise
22:53  so that He may make that [doubt] which Satan casts a tribulation for those in whose hearts is a disease and for those whose hearts are hardened and truly those who wrong their own souls are in a dissension gone far astray
22:54  and so that those who are given the knowledge may know [witness] that it is the truth from your Lord and they may thereby attain to belief and their hearts may submit humbly for it and truly Allah surely is a guide of those who believe, to a path most upright.
22:55  And those who disbelieve will not cease to be in confusion about it until the hour comes upon them suddenly or comes upon them the punishment of a barren day.
22:56  The dominion on that day is for Allah and He will judge between them with wisdom. As for those who believed and did righteous deeds, they will be in gardens of the bliss.
22:57  As for those who disbelieved and belied Our signs, it is those for whom there will be a debasing punishment.
22:58  And as for those who migrated in the way of Allah and then they were killed or died, truly Allah will surely provide them with a most excellent provision and truly Allah, He indeed is the best of those who give provisions.
22:59  Truly He will make them enter through a place of entry with which they shall be well pleased and truly Allah is surely All-knowing, All-Magnanimous.
22:60  This is so and whoever meets out wrong with the like of that with which he was wronged and thereafter he is trespassed against, truly Allah will surely help him. Truly Allah surely is Oft-pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.
22:61  That is so because Allah is the one who causes the night to be covered by the day and causes the day to be covered by the night and truly Allah is All-hearing, All-seeing.
22:62  That is so because Allah, He is the truth and that all else that they invoke besides Him, that is the falsehood. And truly Allah is The All-high, The All-great.
22:63  Have you not seen that Allah sends water from the sky so the earth becomes green? Truly Allah is All-subtle, All-acquainted.
22:64  To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth and truly Allah is certainly The All-self-sufficient, The All-praiseworthy.
22:65  Have you not seen that Allah has made subservient for you all that is in the earth and the vessel that runs in the ocean by His command and He holds the firmament lest it falls on the earth except by His permission. Truly Allah is surely All-tender, Most merciful for the mankind.
22:66  And it is He who caused you to live and then will cause you to die and then will cause you to come back to life. Truly the human being is surely most ungrateful.
22:67  Unto every nation, We have assigned rituals which they are supposed to observe. Therefore they should not dispute with you concerning the commandment. Call unto your Lord. Truly you are on a guidance which is most upright.
22:68  And if they argue with you say, “Allah knows best about that which you do.”
22:69  Allah will judge between you with wisdom on the day of resurrection about the things in which you used to differ.
22:70  And do you not know [witness] that Allah knows all that is in the heaven and in the earth? Truly all of that is in a book. Truly that for Allah is easy.
22:71  And they worship besides Allah that by which He has sent down no authority and that about which they have no knowledge and as for those who wrong their own souls, there is no helper.
22:72  And whenever Our signs are related unto them clearly, you recognize the denial in the faces of those who disbelieve. They nearly attack those who relate Our signs unto them. Say, “Should I inform you of something worse than this? The fire that Allah has promised to those who disbelieve and what a woeful place of final coming.”
22:73  O you the mankind! An example is set forth so listen to it. Truly those whom you invoke besides Allah can never create a fly even if they were to work in concert to that end and if the fly were to rob them of something, they cannot recover it from it. Weak is the one seeking and weak is the one sought after.
22:74  They have not appreciated Allah to His true grandeur. Truly Allah is surely All-strong, All-mighty.
22:75  Allah selects messengers from among the angels and from among the human beings. Truly Allah is All-hearing, All-seeing.
22:76  He knows what is before them and what is behind them and all affairs are returned back to Allah.
22:77  O you who believe! Bow down and prostrate and supplicate your Lord and do the good so that you may attain prosperity.
22:78  And struggle towards Allah with true struggling for Him. It is He who has chosen you and has made no burden on you in the religion. The way of your father Abraham. It was He who named you ‘the submitters’ before and in this [now] so that the messenger becomes a witness over you and that you become witnesses over other human beings. So establish the prayer and give the sanctifying dues and fortify yourselves by Allah. He is your master and how blessed the master and how blessed the helper.
