Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah The Spider(al-`Ankabut)
29:1 Alif �A�, L?m �L�, M?m �M�.
29:2 Do people imagine that they will be left off on saying: �We believe� and they will not be tried?
29:3 And certainly We tried those before them, and assuredly Allah knows those who speak truly, and assuredly He knows the liars.
29:4 Or do those who practise evil imagine that they will outstrip Us? Evil is it that they judge!
29:5 Whoever hopes to meet Allah, (knows that) the term (appointed) by Allah is surely coming; and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
29:6 And whoever strives hard, he strives only for his own self, verily Allah is self sufficient, above (need of) the Worlds.
29:7 And those who believe, and do righteous deeds, We shall certainly acquit them of their evil deeds, and shall recompense them the best of what they were doing.
29:8 And We have enjoined on man goodness unto his parents; and if they strive with you that you should associate (others) with Me, of which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them, unto Me is your return, and I will inform you of what you were doing.
29:9 And those who believe, and do righteous deeds, certainly We shall admit them among the righteous.
29:10 And among the people there are those who say: �We believe in Allah,� and when they are hurt in Allah�s cause, they think the persecution of men as it were Allah�s chastisement, and if help comes from your Lord, they would certainly say: �Verily we were with you�. What! Is not Allah the Best-Knower of what is in the breasts of mankind?
29:11 And certainly Allah knows those who believe, and certainly He knows the hypocrites.
29:12 And those who disbelieve say unto those who believe: �Follow our path and we will certainly bear (the burden of) your sins.� And they shall not be bearers of any thing of their sins. Verily they are liars.
29:13 And certainly they shall carry their own burdens, and (other) burdens with their own burdens, and certainly they shall be questioned on the Day of Resurrection as to what they were forging.
29:14 And certainly We sent Noah to his people, so he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years. And the deluge overtook them while they were unjust.
29:15 So we delivered him and the Companions of the Ark. And We made it a sign for all peoples.
29:16 And (recollect) Abraham when he said unto his people �Worship Allah and be in owe of Him; that will be best for you if you did but know�.
29:17 You worship idols besides Allah and you create a calumny, verily those whom you worship besides Allah do not own for you any sustenance, therefore seek the sustenance from Allah and worship (only) Him, and be grateful to Him, unto Him you shall be returned.
29:18 And if you reject (the Message), so did generations before you and nothing is incumbent on the messenger but a plain delivery (of the message).
29:19 Have they not seen how Allah originates creation, then brings it back again? Verily that is easy for Allah.
29:20 Say: �Travel in the earth and see how He has originated the creation, then Allah brings forth the later creation; verily Allah is powerful over everything�.
29:21 He punishes whom He pleases and has mercy on whom He pleases, and unto Him you will be turned back.
29:22 You are not able to frustrate Him either in the earth or in heavens; and you have not, apart from Allah, either protector or helper.
29:23 And those who disbelieved in the signs of Allah and His meeting, these are despaired of My mercy, and these it is that shall have a painful chastisement.
29:24 But the answer of his people was only that they said: �Kill him, or burn him�. Then Allah saved him from the fire. Verily in this there are signs for a people who believe.
29:25 And said (Abraham): �You have chosen only idols instead of Allah; the love between you is only the life of the world. Then on the Day of Resurrection some of you shall deny the others, and some of you shall curse the others and your abode shall be the (Hell) Fire, and for you shall not be any helpers.
29:26 Then Lot believed in him (Abraham) and he said: �I am a fugitive unto my Lord, for verily He is the Mighty, the Wise.
29:27 And We granted him Isaac and Jacob, and We appointed the Prophecy and the Book to be among his progeny, and We gave him his recompense in the world, and verily in the Hereafter he will certainly be of the Righteous.
29:28 And (remember) Lot when he said to his people: �Verily you commit a lewdness which none of the people of the worlds has ever done before you�.
29:29 Do you approach males and cut the way (of natural matrimony), and you commit dishonour in your assemblies? But his people gave no answer except that they said: �Bring us the chastisement of Allah if you are of the truthful (ones)�.
29:30 He (Lot) said: �My Lord! Help me against the mischievous people!�
29:31 And when Our messengers came to Abraham with the glad tidings (of a son unto him), they said: �Verily we are going to destroy the people of this town, for verily its people are unjust�.
29:32 Said (Abraham to the messenger angels): �Verily Lot is in it.� They said: �We know very well who is in it; we shall certainly deliver him and his family, except his wife; she shall of those who stay behind�.
29:33 And when Our messengers came to Lot he was grieved on their account and distressed for them; but they said: �Fear not, nor grieve, for verily we shall deliver you and your family, except your wife, she shall be of those who stay behind.
29:34 Verily We are bringing down upon the people of this town a punishment from heaven for what they were transgressing.
29:35 And certainly We have left a clear sign of it for a people who have sense.
29:36 And to Madyan (We did send) their brother Shu�ayb, so he said: �O my people! Worship Allah, and look you for the Last Day; and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.
29:37 But they belied him, so the earth quake seized them, and they lay (deed) in their abodes motionless by the morning.
29:38 And (We destroyed) �?d and Tham?d, and it has become clear to you from their dwelling-places, and Satan made their deeds fair-seeming unto them, so he kept them back from the (right) path, though they were keen-sighted.
29:39 And (We destroyed) Korah, and Pharaoh, and H?m?n; and indeed Moses came unto them with clear proofs, but they behaved haughtily in the land, yet they could not outstrip (Us).
29:40 So each (one of them) We seized (in punishment) for his sin; and of them, against some We sent a violent tornado (with showers of stones), some were caught by a mighty Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up, and some We drowned; and it was not Allah to do injustice to them, but they unto their own selves did injustice.
29:41 The parable of those who take guardians besides Allah is as the parable of the spider that makes for itself a house but verily the frailest of (all) houses is the house of the spider, if they but know (this).
29:42 Verily, Allah knows whatever thing they call upon besides Him; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
29:43 And such are the parables We set forth for mankind, but none understand them but the learned (ones).
29:44 Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth, verily in this is a sign for the believers.
29:45 Recite that which has been revealed to you of the Book, and establish the prayer, verily prayer keeps (one) away from indecency and evil, and certainly the remembrance of Allah is greater, and Allah knows what you do.
29:46 And do not dispute with the People of the Book save in the best way, except for those of them who act unjustly, and say: �We believe in what has been sent down unto us and sent down unto you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit�.
29:47 And thus have We sent down unto you the Book. So (some of) those whom we have given the Book believe in it, and of these (pagans) there are those who believe in it, and none deny Our signs except the unbelievers.
29:48 And you did not recite before it any book, nor did you transcribe one with your right hand, indeed, would the talkers of vanities have doubted.
29:49 Nay! It (Qur�?n) is the clear signs in the breasts of those who have been granted the knowledge, and none but the unjust reject Our Signs.
29:50 And they say: �Why have signs (miracles) not been sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: �The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner�.
29:51 And is it not enough for them that We have sent down to you the Book which is recited to them? Verily in this there is mercy and a reminder for a people who believe.
29:52 Say: �Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you�. He knows what is in the heavens and the earth; and those who believe in the falsehood and disbelieve in Allah, these, they are the losers.
29:53 And they demand of you to hasten the chastisement! And had not a term been appointed, the chastisement would certainly have come to them; but it shall certainly come upon them suddenly when they are not aware.
29:54 They demand of you to hasten the chastisement! And verily Hell encompasses the unbeliever.
29:55 On the Day when the chastisement shall cover them from above them, and from beneath their feet, and He shall say: �Taste now what you were doing�.
29:56 O� My servants who believe! Verily My earth is vast, therefore, Me alone should you worship!
29:57 Every soul tastes death, then unto Us you shall be returned.
29:58 And those who believe and do righteous deeds, We will certainly lodge them in lofty chambers of Paradise beneath which rivers flow, therein dwelling forever; how excellent is the recompense of those who act (aright).
29:59 Those who are (patiently) steadfast and on their Lord do they rely.
29:60 And how many a moving creature that does not carry its own provision, (but) Allah sustains it and you! And He is he Hearing, the knowing.
29:61 And if you ask them: �Who created the heavens and the earth and made the sun and the moon subservient?� They will certainly say: �Allah!� Whence are they then perverted?
29:62 Allah enlarges the sustenance for whichever of His servants He pleases, and He grants him by (strict) measure, (as He pleases); verily Allah is Well-Cognizant of all things.
29:63 And if you ask them: �Who sends down water from the heaven and gives life with it unto the earth after its death?� They will certainly say: �Allah!� Say: �All praise is due to Allah.� But most of them so not ponder.
29:64 And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play and verily the abode of the hereafter, is certainly the (real) life: did they but know!
29:65 So when they ride in the ships, they call upon Allah sincerely vowing worship (only) unto Him, and when He brings them safe to the land, they associate others (with Him),
29:66 (Thus) let them be ungrateful for what We have given them and let them enjoy, but they shall soon know.
29:67 Have they not seen that We have appointed a sanctuary secure, while the people are snatched away from all around them? Will they still believe in the falsehood and disbelieve in bounty of Allah?
29:68 And who is more unjust than one who forges a lie against Allah, or belies the truth when it has come to him? Is there not a home in Hell for the disbelievers?
29:69 And those who strive hard for Us, We will certainly guide them in Our ways, and verily Allah is with the good-doers.
