Syed Vickar Ahamed rendition of Surah The Believers(al-Mu`minun)
23:1 Successful! Indeed must be the believers!
23:2 Those who make themselves humble in their prayer;
23:3 And those who avoid useless talk;
23:4 And those who are give (the due) charity;
23:5 And those who guard their chastity, (And their private parts from immoral acts of sex);
23:6 Except with those united to them by the bond of marriage, or (those) whom their right hands possess— For them, they are free from blame,
23:7 But those whose desires are beyond such limits— (They) are the transgressors—
23:8 Those who truly keep their trusts and their promises;
23:9 And who (strictly ensure and) guard their prayers—
23:10 These are indeed, the heirs;
23:11 Who will inherit the Paradise: They will live in there forever.
23:12 And indeed, We created man from purest (of the clay);
23:13 Then We placed him like (a drop of) semen firmly fixed, in a place of (its) rest;
23:14 Then We made the semen into a mass of half-solidified blood; Then from that mass We made an (early embryonic baby-like) lump: Then We made from the lump bones and covered the bones with flesh; Then We developed from it another creature, so blessed be Allah, the Best to create!
23:15 After that, at length, surely you will die.
23:16 Then again, surely, on the Day of Judgment, you will be raised up.
23:17 And above you, We have made seven heavens; And We are never unmindful of (Our) Creation.
23:18 And We send down water from the sky in (proper) quantity, and We make it sink (deep) in the soil; And truly We are able to drain it off.
23:19 Then with it (the water) We grow gardens of date—palms and vines for you; In them you have plenty of fruits; And from them you eat (and you rejoice)—
23:20 And also a tree that grows from Mount Sinai, which produces oil and relish for those who use it for food.
23:21 And truly, (also) in cattle you have an example to learn from: From inside their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink: (In addition), from them there are many (other) benefits for you: And you eat from their (meat);
23:22 And on them, as in ships, you ride.
23:23 (For your guidance, We sent many prophets). And indeed, We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people: (To them) he said: "O my people! Worship Allah! You have no god except Him. Then will you not fear (Him)?"
23:24 The leaders of the disbelievers from his people said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves; His wish is to make his superiority over you: If Allah had wished, He could have sent down angels: We never heard any such thing (like he says), from our forefathers of the old."
23:25 (And some said): "He is only a man in madness: So wait (and be patient) with him for a while."
23:26 He (Nuh) said: "O my Lord! Help me; Because they deny me (and blame me of lying!)"
23:27 So, We revealed to him (this command): "Build the Ark within Our view and under Our guidance: Then when Our command comes (true), and the fountains of the earth open up, you take (into the Ark) pairs of every species, male and female, and your family— Except those of them against whom the word has already gone out: And do not ask Me for favor to the wrongdoers; Surely, they will be drowned (in the flood).
23:28 "And when you have climbed onto the Ark— You and those with you— Then say: ‘All the Praises (and thanks) be to Allah, Who has saved us from the people who do wrong.’
23:29 "And say: ‘O my Lord! Cause me to land (the Ark) at a blessed place for landing: Because You are the best of those to bring (us back) to land.’ "
23:30 Surely, in this, there are Signs (from Us for men to understand: And so) do We try (them).
23:31 Then, We raised after them another generation.
23:32 And We sent to them a messenger from among themselves, (saying). "Worship Allah! You have no god except Him. Then will you not fear (Him)?"
23:33 And the leaders of his people, who disbelieved and denied the meeting in the Hereafter, and to whom We had granted the good things of this life, said: "He is no more than a man like yourselves: He eats from that of which you eat, and drinks from what you drink.
23:34 "If you obey a man like yourselves, then verily it is certain that you will be lost.
23:35 "Does he promise you that when you die and become dust and bones, you will be brought up (again)?
23:36 "Far, very far is that which you are promised!
23:37 "There is nothing except our life in this world! We shall die and (now) we live! And we shall never be raised up again!
23:38 "He is only a man who makes up a lie against Allah, but we are not the ones to believe in him!"
23:39 (The prophet) said: "O my Lord! Help me; Because they deny me (and blame me of lying)."
23:40 (Allah) said: "In only a little while, they are sure to be sorry!"
23:41 Then the blast (an awful cry) came to them with justice, and We made them like rubbish of dead leaves so, away with the wrongdoers!
23:42 Then, after them, We raised other generations.
23:43 No nation can quicken its term, nor can it delay (it).
23:44 Then We sent Our messengers one after another: Every time there came to a people their messenger, they denied him (and blamed him of lying): So, We made them follow each other (with punishment): And We made them like a tale (that is told): So away with the a people who will not believe!
23:45 Then We sent Musa (Moses) and his brother Haroon (Aaron), with Our Signs and clear authority,
23:46 To Firon (Pharaoh) and his chiefs: But these acted with insolence and disrespect: And they were an arrogant people.
23:47 They said: "Shall we believe in two men like ourselves? And their people are obedient to us in humility!"
23:48 So they denied them both (and accused them of lying), and they became of those who were destroyed.
23:49 And indeed, We gave Musa (Moses) the Book (Torah), that they might receive guidance.
23:50 And We made (Isa or Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary) and his mother like a Sign: And We gave them both protection on high ground, offering rest and security and gave them springs (for water).
23:51 O you messengers (of Allah)! Eat (all) the good and the pure things, and carry out righteousness: Verily, I am Well Acquainted with what (ever) you do.
23:52 And surely, this Religion (brotherhood of Islam) of yours is One single Religion (Islam), and I am your Lord and Cherisher: Therefore fear Me (Allah, Alone).
23:53 But people have broken their feelings (for Unity), between them, into (different) groups: Each group rejoices in what is with itself.
23:54 So, leave them in their error (unclear and uninformed condition) for a while.
23:55 Do they think that because We have granted them plenty of wealth and sons,
23:56 We would quicken every good (thing) upon them? No! They do not understand.
23:57 Surely those who live in reverence for the fear of their Lord;
23:58 And those who believe in the Signs of their Lord;
23:59 And those who do not join partners with their Lord;
23:60 And those who give out their charity with their hearts full of fear, because they will return to their Lord—
23:61 It is these who are quick in every good work, and these who are first among them (who are good).
23:62 And We place not a burden upon anyone except according to the capacity of the person: And with Us is a record clearly showing the truth: And they will never be wronged.
23:63 But (for some) their hearts are unclear and uninformed about this; And therein lie their (evil) actions, which they will (continue) to do—
23:64 Till (that time), when We grip in Punishment those of them who received the good things of this world, behold! They will groan (in pain and) in hurt!
23:65 (It will be said ): "Do not groan in (pain and) hurt today; Certainly, you will not be helped by Us.
23:66 "Indeed, My (Allah’s) Signs used to be recited to you, but you used to go back (running) on your heels—
23:67 "In defiance, (while) talking nonsense about (the Quran), like someone is saying (false) stories by night."
23:68 Do they not think deeply over the Word (of Allah), or has anything (new) come to them (now) that did not already come to their fathers of old?
23:69 Or do they not recognize their Messenger (Muhammad) that they reject him?
23:70 Or do they say: "Is there madness (deep) in him?" No! He has brought them the truth, but most of them hate the truth.
23:71 And if the truth was according to their desires, surely, the heavens and the earth, and all the beings in there will be in confusion and ruin! No! We have sent them their reminder (and guidance), but they turn away from their warning.
23:72 Or is it that you ask them for wages or reward? But the repayment of your Lord is best: He is the Best of those who give livelihood (Khair-ur-Razikeen).
23:73 But surely you call them to the Straight Way:
23:74 And certainly, those who do not believe in the Hereafter are wandering away from that Path (Seerath).
23:75 And even though We had mercy on them and removed the difficulty that is on them, still they would stubbornly continue to exceed their limits, wandering here and there being diverted.
23:76 And indeed, We seized them with Punishment, still they did not humble themselves to their Lord, and they do not humbly receive (Him)!
23:77 Till We open on them a gate of a harsh Punishment: Then listen! They will be drowned in pain (and sorrow) in there!
23:78 It is He Who has made for you (the faculties of) hearing, sight, feeling and understanding: (Yet) it is that you give little thanks!
23:79 And He has spread you throughout the earth, and you will be gathered back to Him.
23:80 And it is He Who gives life and causes death, and to Him (is due) the exchange (alternation) of night and day: Then will you not understand?
23:81 To the opposite (effect), they say things similar to what the olden (people) said.
23:82 They said: "What! When we die and become dust and bones, can we really be raised up again?
23:83 "Verily, such things have been promised to us and our fathers before! This is nothing but the stories of the ancient!"
23:84 Say: "To whom belong the earth and all beings in there? (Answer) if you know!"
23:85 They will say: "To Allah!" Say: "Yet will you not take warning (and guidance)?"
23:86 Say: "Who is the Lord of the seven heavens, and the Lord of the Throne Supreme (Rab-ul-Arsh-ul-Azeem)?"
23:87 They will say: "(They belong) to Allah." Say: "Then will you not be filled with fear (and respect)?"
23:88 Say: "Who is it in whose hands is the sovereignty (and order) of all things— Who protects (all), but is not protected: (Answer) if you know."
23:89 They will say: "(It belongs) to Allah." Say: "How, then are you deceived away from truth?"
23:90 We have sent them the truth: And verily, they practice lies!
23:91 Allah fathered no son, and there is not any god alongside with Him: (If there were many gods), then, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some (of them) would have lorded it over the others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things they attribute to Him!
23:92 He knows what is hidden and what is open: Very high above is He for the partners they attribute to Him!
23:93 Say: "O my Lord! If You will (ever) show me that, with which they are threatened (as the Hellfire)—
23:94 "Then, O my Lord! Do not put me amongst the people who do wrong!"
23:95 And surely, We are able to show you that, with which We have threatened them.
23:96 Put off evil with that which is best: We are very familiar with the things they say.
23:97 And say: "O my Lord! I seek protection with You from the whisperings of the Satans'.
23:98 "And I seek protection with You O my Lord! In case they should come near me."
23:99 (In lies will they be) till death comes to one of them, he says: "O my Lord! Send me back (again to life)—
23:100 "So that I may work rightfully the things that I neglected." — "By no means! It is only a word that he says." — Before them is a partition till the Day they are raised up.
23:101 Then, when the Trumpet is blown, there will be no relations between them that day, and they will not ask after another!
23:102 Then, those whose balance (of good deeds) is heavy— These, they will be successful:
23:103 And those whose balance (of good) is light, will be those who have lost their souls; They will live in Hell.
23:104 The Fire will burn their faces, and therein they will smile (in ugliness) with their lips displaced.
23:105 "Were My Signs not recited to you, and you only treated them as lies?"
23:106 They will say: "O Lord! Our bad luck overtook us, and we became a people who had lost our way!
23:107 "Our Lord! Bring us out from this: If we ever return (to evil), then truly we shall be wrongdoers!"
23:108 He (Allah) will say: "Remain you in it! (With worst shame)— And you do not speak to Me
23:109 "Verily, there was a party of My servants who used to Pray, ‘Our Lord! We believe; Then You do forgive us, and have mercy upon us: For You are the Best of those who show mercy (Khair-ur-Rahameen)!’
23:110 "But you made fun of them to the extent that (it) made you forget My Message while you were laughing at them!
23:111 "Verily, I (Allah) have gifted them this Day for their patience and constancy: Really, they are the ones who are successful."
23:112 He will say: "How many years did you stay on earth?"
23:113 They will say: "We stayed a day or part of a day: But ask those who keep account."
23:114 He will say: "You stayed only for a little (while)— If you had only known!
23:115 "Then did you think that We had created you for a joke, and that you will not be brought back to Us?"
23:116 So, Allah be Exalted, the King (Malik) of Truth (Haqq): There is no god except He, the Lord of the Throne of Mercy (Rab-ul-Arsh-ul-Kareem)!
23:117 And if anyone calls besides Allah, any other god when he has no authority for it; And his accounting will be only with his Lord! And surely the disbelievers will not win through!
23:118 And say: "O my Lord! You grant forgiveness and mercy! Because You are the Best of those who show mercy (Khair-ur-Rahimeen)!"
