39:1  The revelation of the Book from God, the Mighty, the Wise
39:2  Indeed, We have sent down unto thee the Book in truth; so worship God, devoting religion entirely to Him
39:3  Behold! Unto God belongs the pure religion, and those who take protectors apart from Him [say], “We do not worship them, save to bring us nigh in nearness unto God.” Truly God will judge between them regarding that wherein they differ. Truly God does not guide one who is a disbelieving liar
39:4  Had God wanted to take a child, He would have chosen whatsoever He willed from that which He created. Glory be to Him; He is the One, the Paramount
39:5  He created the heavens and the earth in truth. He rolls the night up into the day and rolls the day up into the night, and He made the sun and the moon subservient, each running for a term appointed. Is He not the Mighty, the Forgiving
39:6  He created you from a single soul, then made from it its mate, and sent down for you of cattle eight pairs. He creates you in your mothers’ wombs, creation after creation, in threefold darkness. That is God, your Lord; to Him belongs sovereignty. There is no god but He. How, then, are you turned away
39:7  If you do not believe, surely God is beyond need of you. He is not pleased with disbelief for His servants. And if you are grateful, He is pleased therewith for you; and none shall bear the burden of another. Then unto your Lord is your return, and He shall inform you of that which you used to do. Truly He knows what lies within breasts
39:8  And when harm befalls man, he calls upon his Lord, turning unto Him. Then when He bestows a blessing from Himself upon him, he forgets the One upon whom he called before and sets up equals unto God to lead astray from His path. Say, “Enjoy your disbelief a little; truly you shall be among the inhabitants of the Fire.
39:9  What of one who is devoutly obedient during the watches of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], wary of the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord? Say, “Are those who know and those who do not know equal? Only possessors of intellect reflect.
39:10  Say, “O My servants who believe, reverence your Lord. For those who do good in this world there is good; and God’s earth is vast.” Surely those who are patient shall be paid their reward in full without reckoning
39:11  Say, “Truly I have been commanded to worship God, devoting religion entirely to Him
39:12  And I have been commanded to be the first of those who submit.
39:13  Say, “Truly I fear, should I disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day.
39:14  Say, “God do I worship, devoting my religion entirely to Him
39:15  So worship whatsoever you will apart from Him.” Say, “Truly the losers are those who lose their souls and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Yea! That is the manifest loss.
39:16  Above them they shall have canopies of fire and below them canopies; with that does God strike fear into His servants. My servants! Reverence Me
39:17  And as for those who shun false deities and worshipping them, and turn unto God, unto them glad tidings. So give glad tidings to My servants
39:18  who listen to the Word, then follow what is most beautiful of it. It is they whom God has guided; it is they who are the possessors of intellect
39:19  What of one for whom the Word of punishment comes due? Wilt thou save one who is in the Fire
39:20  But as for those who reverence their Lord, they will have lofty abodes above which are lofty abodes, and rivers running below. That is God’s Promise; God will not fail the tryst
39:21  Hast thou not considered that God sends down water from the sky, conducts it as springs in the earth, then brings forth crops of diverse colors? Then they wither and thou seest them yellowing. Then He turns them to chaff. Truly in that is a reminder for possessors of intellect
39:22  What of one whose breast God has expanded for submission, such that he follows a light from his Lord? Woe unto those whose hearts are hardened to the remembrance of God! They are in manifest error
39:23  God has sent down the most beautiful discourse, a Book consimilar, paired, whereat quivers the skin of those who fear their Lord. Then their skin and their hearts soften unto the remembrance of God. That is God’s Guidance, wherewith He guides whomsoever He will; and whomsoever God leads astray, no guide has he
39:24  What of one who guards with his face against the evil punishment on the Day of Resurrection? And it shall be said unto the wrongdoers, “Taste that which you used to earn.
39:25  Those before them denied, and the punishment came upon them whence they were not aware
39:26  Thus God had them taste disgrace in the life of this world; yet the punishment of the Hereafter is surely greater, if they but knew
39:27  And indeed We have set forth for mankind in this Quran every kind of parable, that haply they may remember
39:28  an Arabic Quran, bearing no crookedness, that haply they may be reverent
39:29  God sets forth a parable: a man in whom quarreling partners share, and a man belonging to one man: are the two equal in likeness? Praise be to God! Nay, but most of them know not
39:30  Surely thou wilt die, and surely they will die
39:31  Then on the Day of Resurrection, before thy Lord will you dispute
39:32  So who does greater wrong than one who lies against God and denies the truth when it comes to him? Is there not within Hell an abode for the disbelievers
39:33  And whosoever comes with the truth and confirms it, it is they who are reverent
39:34  With their Lord they shall have whatsoever they will—that is the recompense of the virtuous
39:35  that God may absolve them of the worst of that which they have done and render unto them their reward for the best of that which they used to do
39:36  Does God not suffice His servant? Yet they would frighten thee with those apart from Him; and whomsoever God leads astray, no guide has he
39:37  And whomsoever God guides, none shall lead him astray. Is not God Mighty, Possessor of Vengeance
39:38  And wert thou to ask them, “Who created the heavens and the earth?” They would surely say, “God.” Say, “Then have you considered those upon whom you call, apart from God? If God desires some harm for me, could they remove His Harm, or if He desires some mercy, could they withhold His Mercy?” Say, “God suffices me; in Him trust those who trust.
39:39  Say, “O my people! Act according to your position; I, too, am acting. Soon you shall kno
39:40  upon whom there comes a punishment that disgraces him and upon whom there falls a punishment enduring.
39:41  Truly We have sent down unto thee the Book for mankind in truth. Whosoever is rightly guided, it is for the sake of his own soul. And whosoever goes astray only goes astray to the detriment thereof. And thou art not a guardian over them
39:42  God takes souls at the moment of their death, and those who die not, during their sleep. He withholds those for whom He has decreed death, and sends forth the others till a term appointed. Truly in that are signs for a people who reflect
39:43  Or do they take intercessors apart from God? Say, “Even though they have not any power and do not understand?
39:44  Say, “Unto God belongs intercession altogether. To Him belongs sovereignty over the heavens and the earth. Then unto Him shall you be returned.
39:45  And when God is mentioned alone, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter recoil. But when those apart from Him are mentioned, behold, they rejoice
39:46  Say, “O God! Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the Unseen and the seen, Thou judgest between Thy servants regarding that wherein they differ.
39:47  Were those who work evil to possess all that is on the earth and the like of it besides, they would seek to ransom themselves with it from the terrible punishment on the Day of Resurrection. And there will appear unto them from God that which they had not reckoned
39:48  The evils of that which they have earned will appear unto them, and that which they used to mock will beset them
39:49  And when harm befalls man, he calls upon Us. Then, when We confer upon him a blessing from Us, he says, “I was only given it because of knowledge.” Nay, it is a trial, but most of them know not
39:50  Those before them did say the same; yet that which they used to earn availed them not
39:51  So the evils of that which they earned befell them. And as for those who do wrong among these, the evils of that which they have earned will befall them, and they cannot thwart [it]
39:52  Do they not know that God outspreads and straitens provision for whomsoever He will? Truly in that are signs for a people who believe
39:53  Say, “O My servants who have been prodigal to the detriment of their own souls! Despair not of God’s Mercy. Truly God forgives all sins. Truly He is the Forgiving, the Merciful
39:54  Turn unto your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you, whereupon you will not be helped
39:55  And follow the most beautiful of that which has been sent down unto you from your Lord, before the punishment comes suddenly upon you while you are unaware,
39:56  lest any soul should say, “Alas for me, for what I neglected of my duty to God! Indeed, I was among the scoffers.
39:57  Or lest it say, “If only God had guided me, I would have been among the reverent.
39:58  Or lest it say, when it sees the punishment, “If only I had another chance, I would be among the virtuous.
39:59  Nay, My signs did indeed come unto you; yet you denied them, waxed arrogant, and were among the disbelievers
39:60  And on the Day of Resurrection thou wilt see those who lied against God having blackened faces. Is there not in Hell an abode for the arrogant
39:61  And God saves those who are reverent by their triumph; evil will not befall them; nor will they grieve
39:62  God is the Creator of all things, and He is Guardian over all things
39:63  Unto Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth. And those who disbelieve in the signs of God, it is they who are the losers
39:64  Say, “Do you bid me to worship other than God, O ignorant ones?
39:65  Surely it has been revealed unto thee and unto those before thee that if thou dost ascribe partners [unto God], thy work will surely come to naught and thou shalt be among the losers
39:66  Rather, worship God and be among the thankful
39:67  They did not measure God with His true measure. The whole earth shall be but a handful to Him on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens will be enfolded in His right Hand. Glory be to Him, exalted is He above the partners they ascribe
39:68  And the trumpet will be blown, whereupon whosoever is in the heavens and on the earth will swoon, save those whom God wills. Then it will be blown again, and, behold, they will be standing, beholding
39:69  The earth will shine with the Light of its Lord, the Book will be set down, and the prophets and the witnesses will be brought forth. Judgment will be made between them in truth, and they shall not be wronged
39:70  Every soul will be paid in full for that which it has done, and He knows best what they do
39:71  And those who disbelieve will be driven unto Hell in throngs, till when they reach it, its gates will be opened and its keepers will say unto them, “Did not messengers from among you come to you, reciting unto you the signs of your Lord and warning you of the meeting with this your Day?” They will say, “Yea, indeed!” But the Word of punishment has come due for the disbelievers
39:72  It will be said, “Enter the gates of Hell, to abide therein.” How evil is the abode of the arrogant
39:73  And those who reverence their Lord will be driven to the Garden in throngs, till when they reach it, its gates will be opened and its keepers will say unto them, “Peace be upon you; you have done well; so enter it, to abide [therein].
39:74  They will say, “Praise be to God, Who was faithful to us in His Promise, and has caused us to inherit the land, that we may settle in the Garden wheresoever we will.” How excellent is the reward of the workers
39:75  And thou shalt see the angels encircling all around the Throne, hymning the praise of their Lord. Judgment shall be made between them in truth, and it will be said, “Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds.
