Abdul Hye rendition of Surah Luqman, Lukman(Luqman)
31:1  Alif-Lam-Meem.
31:2  These are the Verses of the wise book (the Qur’an),
31:3  a guide and a Mercy for the righteous;
31:4  those who establish the prayer, give obligatory charity, and have firm faith in the Hereafter.
31:5  These are on guidance from their Lord, and such are they who will the successful.
31:6  And of mankind there are some who purchase idle talks to mislead from the Way of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Way of Allah) as a mockery. For such people there will be a humiliating punishment.
31:7  And when Our Verses (of the Qur’an) are recited to such people, they turn away in pride, as if they did not hear them, as if there is deafness in their ear. So announce to them a painful punishment.
31:8  Surely, those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them are gardens of delight (Paradise)
31:9  to abide forever in it. It is a Promise of Allah in truth. And He is the Mighty, the Wise.
31:10  He has created the heavens without any pillars that you see, has set firm mountains on the earth lest it should shake with you. And He has scattered in it all kinds of animals. And We send down water (rain) from the sky and We cause plants of every noble kind to grow in it.
31:11  This is the creation of Allah. So show Me which those (false deities) besides Him have created? Nay, the wrongdoers are in plain error.
31:12  And indeed We bestowed upon Luqman the wisdom (saying): “Give thanks to Allah,” and those who give thanks, they only give thanks for their own self. And whoever is ungrateful (should know that) surely Allah is Rich, Praise-Worthy.
31:13  And (remember) when Luqman was advising his son, said to him: “O my son! Don’t join in worship others with Allah. Surely! Joining others in worship with Allah is a great wrong indeed.”
31:14  And We have enjoined on people (to be dutiful) to their parents. Each mother carries her child in her womb while suffering in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and then weans the child in 2 years that: “You give thanks to Me and to your parents, to Me is the final destination.
31:15  If they both strive against you to make you join in worship others with Me of which you have no knowledge, then don’t obey them; but behave with them kindly in this world, and follow the way of those who turn to Me in repentance and in obedience. To Me will be your return, and I shall tell you what you have done.”
31:16  (Luqman said): “O my son! Indeed if it (anything) is equal to the weight of a grain of mustard seed, and though it is in a rock, or in the heavens or in the earth, Allah will bring it out. Surely, Allah is Subtle (able to make fine distinction), Well-Aware (of all things).
31:17  O my son! Establish the prayer, enjoin good, forbid evil, and bear with patience whatever befalls you. Surely! These are some of the important commandments.
31:18  And don’t turn your face away (with pride) from people, nor walk in pride on the earth. Surely, Allah does not like any arrogant boaster.
31:19  And be moderate (no pride) in your walking and lower your voice. Surely, the harshest of all voices is indeed the voice of the donkey.”
31:20  Don’t you see that Allah has subjected for you whatever is in the heavens and in the earth, and has completed His Graces upon you, (both) apparent (seen) and hidden (unseen)? Yet, there are some people who dispute about Allah without knowledge or guidance or a book giving light!
31:21  When it is said to them: “Follow that which Allah has sent down,” they say: “Nay, we shall follow which we found our forefathers following.” (They will follow) even if Satan invites them to punishment of the fire.
31:22  And those who submit their faces to Allah while they are righteous people, then indeed they have grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold. And to Allah all matters return.
31:23  Those who disbelieve, let their disbelief not grieve you (O Muhammad). To Us is their return and We shall inform them what they have done. Surely, Allah is the All-Knower of what are in the hearts (of people).
31:24  We let them enjoy for a little while (in this world), then We shall oblige them to enter a great punishment (in the Hereafter).
31:25  And if you (O Muhammad) ask them: “Who has created the heavens and the earth?” They will certainly say: “Allah.” Say: “All the praises and thanks are to Allah!” But most of them don’t know.
31:26  To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Surely, Allah is the One Who is Rich (free of all wants), Praise-Worthy.
31:27  And if all the trees on the earth were pens and the sea (were ink to write) with 7 more seas behind it (supply), yet (the writing of the) Words of Allah would not be exhausted. Surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
31:28  Neither your creation nor your Resurrection is anything but as that of a single person. Surely, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.
31:29  Don’t you (O Muhammad) see that Allah merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night, and has subjected the sun and the moon (to follow the commandment of Allah), each running (its course) for an appointed term; and that Allah is All-Aware of all that you do?
31:30  That is because Allah is the Truth and all those which they invoke besides Him are false, and He is the High, the Great.
31:31  Don’t you see how the ships sail through the sea by the Grace of Allah so that He may show you His Signs? Surely, there are signs for every patient, grateful (person).
31:32  When a wave covers them like a shade, they invoke Allah with sincerity in faith to Him only. But when He brings them safe to land, there are some among them who stop in the middle (between belief and disbelief). But none denies Our Signs except every ungrateful traitor.
31:33  O mankind! Be afraid and dutiful to your Lord and fear a Day when no father shall avail for his son or a son shall avail for his father anything. Surely, the Promise of Allah is true. Let not the worldly life deceives you, nor let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah.
31:34  Surely, with Allah is the knowledge of the Hour, He sends down the rain, and knows what is in the wombs. No one knows what he will earn tomorrow, and no one knows in what land he will die. Surely, Allah is All-Knower, All-Aware of everything.
