39:1  The [gradual] sending down of the Book is from Allah, the All-mighty, the All-wise
39:2  Indeed We have sent down the Book to you with the truth; so worship Allah, putting exclusive faith in Him
39:3  Look! [Only] exclusive faith is worthy of Allah, and those who take guardians besides Him [claiming,] ‘We only worship them so that they may bring us near to Allah,’ Allah will indeed judge between them concerning that about which they differ. Indeed Allah does not guide someone who is a liar and an ingrate
39:4  Had Allah intended to take a son, He could have chosen from those He has created whatever He wished. Immaculate is He! He is Allah, the One, the All-paramount
39:5  He created the heavens and the earth with reason. He winds the night over the day, and winds the day over the night, and He has disposed the sun and the moon, each moving for a specified term. Look! He is the All-mighty, the All-forgiver
39:6  He created you from a single soul, then made from it its mate, and He has sent down for you eight mates of the cattle. He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation, in a threefold darkness. That is Allah, your Lord! To Him belongs all sovereignty. There is no god except Him. Then where are you being led away
39:7  If you are ungrateful, indeed Allah has no need of you, though He does not approve ingratitude for His servants; and if you give thanks He approves that for you. No bearer shall bear another’s burden; then to your Lord will be your return, whereat He will inform you concerning what you used to do. Indeed He knows best what is in the breasts
39:8  When distress befalls man, he supplicates his Lord, turning to Him penitently. Then, when He grants him a blessing from Himself, he forgets that for which he had supplicated Him before, and sets up equals to Allah that he may lead [people] astray from His way. Say, ‘Revel in your ingratitude for a while. Indeed you are among the inmates of the Fire.’
39:9  Is he who supplicates in the watches of the night, prostrating and standing, apprehensive of the Hereafter and expecting the mercy of his Lord . . . ? Say, ‘Are those who know equal to those who do not know?’ Only those who possess intellect take admonition
39:10  Say, ‘[Allah declares:] “O My servants who have faith! Be wary of your Lord. For those who do good in this world there will be a good [reward], and Allah’s earth is vast. Indeed the patient will be paid in full their reward without any reckoning.” ’
39:11  Say, ‘Indeed I have been commanded to worship Allah with exclusive faith in Him
39:12  and I have been commanded to be the first of those who submit [to Him].&rsquo
39:13  Say, ‘Indeed, should I disobey my Lord, I fear the punishment of a tremendous day.’
39:14  Say, ‘[Only] Allah do I worship, putting my exclusive faith in Him
39:15  You worship whatever you wish besides Him.’ Say, ‘Indeed the losers are those who ruin themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection.’ Look! That is a manifest loss
39:16  There will be canopies of fire above them, and [similar] canopies beneath them. With that Allah deters His servants. So, My servants, be wary of Me
39:17  As for those who stay clear of the worship of the Rebel and turn penitently to Allah, there is good news for them. So give good news to My servant
39:18  who listen to the word [of Allah] and follow the best [sense] of it. They are the ones whom Allah has guided, and it is they who possess intellect
39:19  Can he against whom the word of punishment has become due? Can you rescue someone who is in the Fire
39:20  But as for those who are wary of their Lord, for them there will be lofty abodes with [other] lofty abodes built above them, with streams running beneath them —a promise of Allah. Allah does not break His promise
39:21  Have you not seen that Allah sends down water from the sky, then He conducts it through the ground as springs. Then with it He brings forth crops of diverse hues. Then they wither and you see them turn yellow. Then He turns them into chaff. There is indeed an admonition in that for those who possess intellect
39:22  Is someone whose breast Allah has opened to Islam so that he follows a light from His Lord? So woe to those whose hearts have been hardened to the remembrance of Allah. They are in manifest error
39:23  Allah has sent down the best of discourses, a scripture [composed] of similar motifs, whereat quiver the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and hearts soften to Allah’s remembrance. That is Allah’s guidance, by which He guides whomever He wishes; and whomever Allah leads astray, has no guide
39:24  What! Is someone who fends off with his face the terrible punishment [meted out to him] on the Day of Resurrection? And the wrongdoers will be told, ‘Taste what you used to earn.’
39:25  Those who were before them impugned [the apostles], whereat the punishment overtook them whence they were not aware
39:26  So Allah made them taste disgrace in the life of the world, and the punishment of the Hereafter will surely be greater, had they known
39:27  Certainly we have drawn for mankind in this Qur’an every [kind of] example, so that they may take admonitio
39:28  —an Arabic Qur’an, without any deviousness, so that they may be Godwary
39:29  Allah draws an example: a man jointly owned by several contending masters, and a man belonging entirely to one man: are the two equal in comparison? All praise belongs to Allah! But most of them do not know
39:30  You will indeed die, and they [too] will die indeed
39:31  Then on the Day of Resurrection you will indeed contend before your Lord
39:32  So who is a greater wrongdoer than him who attributes a falsehood to Allah, and denies the truth when it reaches him? Is not the [final] abode of the faithless in hell
39:33  He who brings the truth and he who confirms it —it is they who are the Godwary
39:34  They will have whatever they wish near their Lord. That is the reward of the virtuous
39:35  so that Allah may absolve them of the worst of what they did, and pay them their reward by the best of what they used to do
39:36  Does not Allah suffice [to defend] His servant? They would frighten you of others than Him. Yet whomever Allah leads astray, has no guide
39:37  and whomever Allah guides, there is no one who can lead him astray. Is not Allah an all-mighty avenger
39:38  If you ask them, ‘Who created the heavens and the earth?’ they will surely say, ‘Allah.’ Say, ‘Have you considered what you invoke besides Allah? Should Allah desire some distress for me, can they remove the distress visited by Him? Or should He desire some mercy for me, can they withhold His mercy?’ Say, ‘Allah is sufficient for me. In Him let all the trusting put their trust.’
39:39  Say, ‘O my people! Act according to your ability. I too am acting. Soon you will kno
39:40  who will be overtaken by a punishment that will disgrace him, and on whom a lasting punishment will descend.’
39:41  Indeed We have sent down the Book to you for [the deliverance of] mankind with the truth. So whoever is guided is guided for his own sake, and whoever goes astray, goes astray to his own detriment, and it is not your duty to watch over them
39:42  Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and those who have not died in their sleep. Then He retains those for whom He has ordained death and releases the others until a specified time. There are indeed signs in that for a people who reflect
39:43  Have they taken intercessors besides Allah? Say, ‘What! Even though they have no control over anything and cannot apply reason?!’
39:44  Say, ‘All intercession rests with Allah. To Him belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; then you will be brought back to Him.’
39:45  When Allah is mentioned alone, [thereat] shrink away the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter, but when others are mentioned besides Him, behold, they rejoice
39:46  Say, ‘O Allah! Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the sensible and the Unseen, You will judge between Your servants concerning that about which they used to differ.’
39:47  Even if the wrongdoers possessed all that is on the earth, and as much of it besides, they would surely offer it to redeem themselves with it from a terrible punishment on the Day of Resurrection, and there will appear to them from Allah what they had never reckoned
39:48  The evils of what they had earned will appear to them, and they will be besieged by what they used to deride
39:49  When distress befalls man, he supplicates Us. Then, when We grant him a blessing from Us, he says, ‘I was given it by virtue of [my] knowledge.’ Rather it is a test, but most of them do not know
39:50  Those who were before them [also] said that, but what they used to earn did not avail them
39:51  So the evils of what they had earned visited them, and as for the wrongdoers among these, the evils of what they earn shall be visited on them and they will not thwart [Allah’s might]
39:52  Do they not know that Allah expands the provision for whomever He wishes and tightens it [for whomever He wishes]? There are indeed signs in that for a people who have faith
39:53  Say [that Allah declares,] ‘O My servants who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed Allah will forgive all sins. Indeed He is the All-forgiving, the All-merciful
39:54  Turn penitently to Him and submit to Him before the punishment overtakes you, whereupon you will not be helped
39:55  And follow the best of what has been sent down to you from your Lord, before the punishment overtakes you suddenly while you are unaware.’
39:56  Lest anyone should say, ‘Alas for my negligence in the vicinage of Allah! Indeed I was among those who ridiculed.’
39:57  Or say, ‘Had Allah guided me I would have surely been among the Godwary!’
39:58  Or say, when he sights the punishment, ‘If only there had been a second chance for me I would be among the virtuous!’
39:59  ‘Yes, My signs certainly came to you, but you denied them and acted arrogantly and you were among the faithless.’
39:60  On the Day of Resurrection you will see those who attributed lies to Allah with their faces blackened. Is not the [final] abode of the arrogant in hell
39:61  Allah will deliver those who were Godwary with their salvation. No ill shall touch them, nor will they grieve
39:62  Allah is creator of all things, and He watches over all things
39:63  To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, and those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah —it is they who are the losers
39:64  Say, ‘Will you, then, bid me to worship other than Allah, O you senseless ones?!’
39:65  Certainly it has been revealed to you and to those [who have been] before you: ‘If you ascribe a partner to Allah your works shall fail and you shall surely be among the losers
39:66  Rather, worship Allah, and be among the grateful!’
39:67  They do not regard Allah with the regard due to Him, yet the entire earth will be in His fist on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens, scrolled, in His right hand. Immaculate is He and exalted above [having] any partners that they ascribe [to Him]
39:68  And the Trumpet will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens will swoon and whoever is on the earth, except whomever Allah wishes. Then it will be blown a second time, behold, they will rise up, looking on
39:69  And the earth will glow with the light of her Lord, and the Book will be set up, and the prophets and the martyrs will be brought, and judgment will be made between them with justice, and they will not be wronged
39:70  Every soul will be recompensed fully for what it has done, and He is best aware of what they do
39:71  The faithless will be driven to hell in throngs. When they reach it, and its gates are opened, its keepers will say to them, ‘Did there not come to you [any] apostles from among yourselves, reciting to you the signs of your Lord and warning you of the encounter of this day of yours?’ They will say, ‘Yes, but the word of punishment became due against the faithless.’
39:72  It will be said, ‘Enter the gates of hell to remain in it [forever]. Evil is the [ultimate] abode of the arrogant.’
39:73  Those who are wary of their Lord will be led to paradise in throngs. When they reach it, and its gates are opened, its keepers will say to them, ‘Peace be to you! You are welcome! Enter it to remain [forever].&rsquo
39:74  They will say, ‘All praise belongs to Allah, who has fulfilled His promise to us and made us heirs to the earth, that we may settle in paradise wherever we may wish!’ How excellent is the reward of the workers [of righteousness]
39:75  And you will see the angels surrounding the Throne, celebrating the praise of their Lord, and judgment will be made between them with justice, and it will be said, ‘All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds!’
