34:1  The praise is for Allah for whom is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth and for Him is the praise in the hereafter and it is He who is The All-wise, The All-acquainted.
34:2  He knows all that enters in the earth and all that comes forth from it and all that descends from the heaven and all that ascends therein and it is He who is The Most Merciful, the Oft-Forgiving.
34:3  And those who disbelieved said, “The Hour will not come to us” say, “Indeed by my Lord who is the knower of the unseen, it will most certainly come to you.” The size of an atom is not hidden from Him in the heavens nor in the earth and nothing smaller than that and nothing bigger except that it is in a book which is most evident.
34:4  So that He may give unto those who believed and did righteous deeds their reward. For these there is forgiveness and a most gracious sustenance.
34:5  But those who endeavor to disprove Our signs, for them there will be a painful punishment of ignominy.
34:6  And those unto whom the knowledge is given see that what is sent down to you from your Lord, that is the truth and that it guides towards the path of The All-mighty, The All-praiseworthy.
34:7  And those who disbelieve say, “Shall we point out to you a man who will inform you that when you have totally disintegrated into pieces that surely you will be [raised into] a new creation?”
34:8  Has he contrived a lie against Allah or is there madness in him. Nay! It is those who do not believe in the hereafter who are in the punishment and in the misguidance gone far astray.
34:9  Have they not seen that which is ahead of them and that which is behind them from the heaven and the earth? If We wish, we can cause the earth to swallow them or can cause a piece from the heaven to fall on them and truly in this is a sign for every slave who returns.
34:10  And We have indeed given a favor unto David from Us, “O Mountains! Resonate with him and O you the birds [as well]! And We have softened the iron for him.”
34:11  Saying to him that, “Make ample panoply and measure well in your handicraft. And do righteous deeds. Truly I am All-seeing of all that you do.”
34:12  And for Solomon [We subjected] the wind [for him] its morning [travel] is equal to a month’s and its evening [travel] is equal to a month’s and We caused a fount of molten brass to flow for him and among the Jinns are those who work before him by the leave of his Lord and whosoever among them swerves from Our commandment, we make him taste from the punishment of the blazing fire.
34:13  They made for him whatever he pleases from sanctuaries and statues and basins like reservoirs and cauldrons anchored in their spot. O family of David! Work out of gratitude and few are those who are grateful from among My slaves.
34:14  But when We decreed the death on him, nothing showed them his death except a creature of the earth eating his staff. So when he fell, then it became clear to the Jinns that if they had the knowledge of the unseen, they would have not remained in the most humiliating punishment.
34:15  There indeed was a sign for Sheba in their dwelling place, two gardens one from right and one from left. Eat from the sustenance of your Lord and offer gratitude to Him. A goodly land and a Lord Oft-Forgiving.
34:16  But they turned away [from Allah] so We sent upon them an overwhelming flood and We changed their two gardens with two other gardens full of bitter fruit and tamarisks and a little bit of lot-tree.
34:17  And thus We paid them back for that they disbelieved and do We pay back anyone for his deed except the disbeliever?
34:18  And We had placed between them and the cities that We blessed, other cities that were visible and We measured the journey therein. Travel in them nights and days in all safety.
34:19  And they said, “O our Lord! Put a distance between our travels.” and they wronged their own souls. So We made them into tales and We dismembered them completely into pieces. Truly in that are surely signs for anyone who is patient and grateful.
34:20  And Satan has made his expectation on them come true so they followed him except a party from among the believers.
34:21  And he had no authority over them except that We may mark out who believes in the hereafter from who is in incredulity about it and your Lord is All-keeper for everything.
34:22  Say, “Call those that you claim other than Allah.” They do not control the weight of an atom in the heavens and in the earth and there is no partner for them to ascribe to Allah in both of them [heavens and the earth] and there is no supporter for Him from among them.
34:23  And intercession does not benefit in His presence except one for whom He has given permission till when fear is removed from their hearts they say, “What has your Lord pronounced?” They say, “The truth.” He it is The All-high, The All-great.
34:24  Say, “Who provides sustenance for you from the heavens and from the earth?” say, “It is Allah; so either only we or only you are on guidance or in evident misguidance.
34:25  Say, “You shall not be questioned about the evils that we have committed and we will not be questioned about all that you do.”
34:26  Say, “Our Lord will gather us together and then segregate between us by the truth and it is He who is The Opener, The All-knowing.”
34:27  Say, “Show me those you have joined with Him as partners. Not at all! Nay It is Allah, The All-mighty, The All-wise.”
34:28  We have not sent you except for the entire humankind as a bringer of glad tidings and as a warner but most human beings know not.
34:29  And they say, “When will this promise be fulfilled if you are indeed truthful?”
34:30  Say, “There is the appointment of a day for you. You will not delay an hour from it nor advance an hour beyond it.”
34:31  And those who disbelieve say, “We will never believe in this Quran nor in the one that was before it.” Only if you could see when the wrongdoers will be made to stand in the presence of their Lord as they bandy words of recrimination to one another. Those who were oppressed saying to those who held themselves great, “Had it not been for you we would certainly have been believers.”
34:32  And those who hold themselves great will say to those who were oppressed, “Were it we who hindered you from the guidance after it came to you? Nay, you were evildoers.”
34:33  And those who were oppressed will say to those who held themselves great, “Nay it was the scheme of the night and of the day when you commanded us to be ungrateful to Allah and to make equals to Him.” So they will hide their regret when they will see the punishment and We will put the chains in the necks of those who disbelieve. Are they rewarded except for that which they used to do?
34:34  And We have never sent a warner in a city except that its people of affluence would say, “We are disbelievers in that with which you are sent.”
34:35  And they say, “We have more wealth and more children so we are not going to be punished.”
34:36  Say, “Truly my Lord widens the sustenance for whom He pleases and constricts [it] but most human beings do not know.”
34:37  And it is not your wealth nor your children which is going to bring you closer to Our presence except the one who believes and does righteous deeds. Truly for them there will be twofold reward for all that they do and they will abide in all safety in the lofty mansions.
34:38  And those who endeavor to disprove Our signs, they will be brought into the punishment.
34:39  Say, “Truly my Lord widens the sustenance for whom He pleases from His slaves and constricts [it] for him and whatever you spend of anything, He indeed will replace it for you and it is He who is the best of those who provide sustenance.”
34:40  And on a day He will gather them altogether and then He will say to the angels, “Was it you that these used to worship?”
34:41  They will say, “Glory be unto you. You are our ally instead of them. Nay they used to worship the Jinns. Most of them are believers in them.”
34:42  So today none of you possesses benefit or harm for one another and We will say to those who wronged their own soul, “Taste you the punishment of the fire that which you used to belie.”
34:43  And whenever Our signs are related unto them clearly they say, “This is nothing but a man who wants to hinder you from that which your fathers used to worship.” and they say, “This is nothing but a contrived fabrication.” And those that disbelieve say to the truth when it came to them, “This is nothing but an evident magic.”
34:44  And We had not given them books which they might have studied nor did We send any warner to them before you.
34:45  And those who were before them did belie and they have not attained one-tenth of what We have given unto them and they too belied My messengers. So how exonerating was My punishment.
34:46  Say, “I only invite you to do one thing to stand for Allah in pairs and singles and then reflect.” There is no madness in your companion. He is but a warner for you ahead of a formidable punishment.
34:47  Say whatever I ask from you as a reward is all for you. My reward is only on Allah and He is All-witnessing over everything.
34:48  Say, “Truly my Lord throws by the truth. [He is] the Knower of the unseen.”
34:49  Say, “The truth has come and the falsehood has no start and has no returning.”
34:50  Say, “If I am misguided, then my misguidance is only against my own soul but if I am guided it is because of what my Lord has revealed unto me. Truly He is All-hearing, All-near.”
34:51  If only you could see when they will be stricken with terror but there will be no escape and they will be seized from a place so near.
34:52  And they say, “We believe in it but how can they reach it from a place so far.”
34:53  They indeed disbelieved in it before and they used to throw in the unseen from a place so far.
34:54  And a boundary was setup between them and all that they desired in the manner it was done to those of their kind before. Truly they were in doubtful incredulity.
