40:1  Ha-Mim.
40:2  The revelation of this book (this Qur’an) is from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Knower,
40:3  the Forgiver of sin, and the Acceptor of repentance, the Severe in punishment, the Bestower (of Favors), no one worthy of worship except Allah, to Allah is the final return.
40:4  None disputes in the Verses of Allah but those who disbelieve, so let not their ability of going about here and there through the land deceive you (O Muhammad)!
40:5  Before them the people of Noah and the confederates after them denied (their Messengers). Every (disbelieving) nation plotted against their Messenger to seize him, and disputed by means of falsehood to refute therewith the truth. So I seized them (with punishment), and how terrible was My Punishment!
40:6  Thus the Word of your Lord has been justified against those who disbelieved; they will be the inmates of the fire.
40:7  Those (angels) who bear the Throne (of Allah) and those who are around it glorify the praises of their Lord, and believe in Him, and ask forgiveness for those who believe (saying): “Our Lord! You comprehend all things in Mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who repent and follow Your Way, and save them from the punishment of the blazing fire!
40:8  Our Lord! Make them enter the gardens of (everlasting) Eden (Paradise) which You have promised them, and who was righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their offspring! Surely, You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
40:9  And save them from (the punishment) of the sins, and whomever You save from (the punishment of) the sins (excuse them) that Day, surely, You gave them Mercy.” That is the supreme success.
40:10  Truly those who disbelieve will be addressed (at the entry time to the fire): “Allah’s dislike towards you was greater (in the world when you used to reject the faith) than your dislike towards one another (now you are enemies to one another in the hellfire), when you were called to the faith but you used to refuse.”
40:11  They will say: “Our Lord! You have made us die twice (dead in the loins of our fathers and dead in this world), and You have given us life twice (when born and when resurrected)! Now we confess our sins, then is there any way to get out (of the fire)?”
40:12  (It will be replied): “This is because, when Allah alone was invoked (in worship) you disbelieved, but when partners were joined to Him, you believed! So the judgment is only with Allah, the High, the Great!”
40:13  It is He Who shows you His Verses and sends down provision for you from the sky. None remembers but those who turn (to Allah).
40:14  You (O Muhammad and the believers) call upon Allah making your worship pure to Him, however much the disbelievers may hate the it.
40:15  (Allah is the) Owner of High Ranks and Degrees, the Owner of the Throne. He sends the inspiration by His Command to any of His servants whom He wills, that he (the prophet who receives inspiration) warns people of the Day of mutual meeting (Resurrection).
40:16  The Day when they all will come out, nothing of them will be hidden from Allah. (It will be asked): “Whose kingdom is this Day?” (Allah will reply to His question): “It is to Allah, the One, the Irresistible!
40:17  This Day every person shall be recompensed for what it has earned. Today no injustice (shall be done to anybody). Truly, Allah is Swift in reckoning.”
40:18  And warn them (O Muhammad) of the Day that is drawing near (the Day of Resurrection), when the hearts will be choking the throats (with grief), and they can neither return them (hearts) to their chests nor they can throw them out. The wrongdoers will have neither friend nor intercessor who could be given attention.
40:19  Allah knows the fraud of the eyes, and all that the hearts conceal.
40:20  Allah will judge the truth, while those whom they invoke besides Him, cannot judge anything. Certainly, Allah is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.
40:21  Have they not traveled in the land and seen what was the end of those who were before them? They were superior to them in strength and in traces (they left) in the land. But Allah seized them for their sins. They had none to protect them from Allah.
40:22  That was because there came to them their Messengers with clear evidences. But they disbelieved. So Allah seized them. Surely, He is Strong, Severe in punishment.
40:23  And indeed We sent Moses with Our Verses, and a clear authority,
40:24  to Pharaoh, Haman, and Korah; they called (Moses): “A sorcerer, a liar!”
40:25  Then, when he brought the truth from Us to them, they said: “Kill the sons of those who believe with him and let their women live.” But the plots of disbelievers (were nothing) but in errors!
40:26  Pharaoh said: “Let me kill Moses, and let him call his Lord (to stop me)! Surely, I fear that he may change your religion or that he may cause mischief to appear in the land!”
40:27  Moses said: “Surely, I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant who don’t believe in the Day of reckoning!”
40:28  And a believer from Pharaoh’s family, who hid his faith, said: “Will you kill a man because he says: ‘My Lord is Allah,’ especially when Moses has come to you with clear signs from your Lord? If he is a liar, his sin will lie upon him; but if he is telling the truth, then some of that (calamity) which he threatens you will befall on you. Surely, Allah does not guide the one who is a polytheist, a liar!
40:29  O my people! You are the ruler today and you are uppermost in the land. But who will save us from the punishment of Allah, if it comes to us?” Pharaoh said: “I show you what I see correct and I guide you to the way of right policy!”
40:30  And he (who believed) said: “O my people! Surely, I fear for you a fate like that Day (disaster) of the confederates,
40:31  like the fate of the people of Noah, Ad, Thamud, and those who came after them. Allah wants no injustice for (His) servants.
40:32  And O my people! Surely! I fear for you the Day when there will be mutual calling (between the people of hell and Paradise),
40:33  a Day when you will turn your backs and you have no protector from Allah. Whomever Allah sends astray, there is no guide for him.
40:34  And indeed Joseph did come to you before with clear signs, but you were always in doubt concerning what he did bring to you, till when he died with it, you said: ‘Allah will never send a Messenger after him.’ Thus Allah leaves those astray who are the doubtful polytheists,
40:35  who dispute in Allah’s Verses without any authority that has come to them. It is greatly hateful to Allah and to those who believe. Thus Allah seals up every heart of arrogant, tyrant.”
40:36  And Pharaoh said: “O Haman! Build a tower for me so that I may arrive at the ways,
40:37  the ways to the heavens, and I may look upon the one worthy of worship of Moses but surely, I think him to be a liar.” Thus it was made seem fair in Pharaoh’s eyes, the evil of his deeds, and he was hindered from the Right Way. The plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but in loss.
40:38  And the man who believed, said: “O my people! Follow me; I will guide you to the way of right conduct.
40:39  O my people! Truly, this life of the world is nothing but an enjoyment, and surely, the Hereafter is the home that will remain forever
40:40  Whoever does an evil deed, will be requited the like thereof; and whoever is a true believer and does a righteous deed, whether male or female, such one will enter Paradise where they will be provided in it (all things) without limit.
40:41  And O my people! How is it that I call you to salvation and you call me to the fire
40:42  You invite me to disbelieve in Allah and to join (partners) with Allah about which I have no knowledge; while I invite you to the All-Mighty, the Forgiving!
40:43  No doubt that you call me to worship it which can neither grant a claim (request) in this world nor in the Hereafter. Our return will be to Allah; and the polytheists will be the inmates of the fire!
40:44  And you will remember what I am telling you and I leave all my matters to Allah. Surely, Allah is the All-Seer of everything of the servants.
40:45  So Allah saved him (believer) from the evils what they plotted (against him), and encompassed Pharaoh’s people with an evil punishment.
40:46  They are exposed to the fire morning and afternoon, and on the Day when the Hour will be established (angels will be told): “Cause Pharaoh’s people to enter the severest punishment!”
40:47  And when they will dispute in the fire, the weak will say to those who were arrogant: “Surely! We were your followers, so can you save us from a portion of the fire?”
40:48  Those who were arrogant will say: “Surely we are all together in it (fire)! Verily, Allah has judged between His servants!”
40:49  And those in the fire will say to the keepers (angels) of hell: “Call upon your Lord to lighten the punishment for us for a day!”
40:50  They (keepers) will say: “Did there not come to you Messengers with clear evidences? They will say: “Yes.” They will reply: “Then pray (as you like)!” But the invocation of the disbelievers is nothing but in error!
40:51  Surely, We will make Our Messengers victorious and those who believe in worldly life and on the Day when the witnesses will stand.
40:52  The Day when their excuses will not benefit the wrongdoers. The curse will be for them and for them will be evil abode (painful punishment).
40:53  And indeed We gave Moses the guidance, and We caused the children of Israel to inherit the Scripture (the Torah),
40:54  a guide and a reminder for people of understanding.
40:55  So be patient (O Muhammad). Surely, the Promise of Allah is true, ask forgiveness for your fault, and glorify the praises of your Lord in the early evening Hours and in the early morning Hours.
40:56  Surely, those who dispute about Allah’s Verses without any authority bestowed to them, there is nothing else in their hearts except arrogance. They will never have it (Prophethood which Allah has bestowed upon you). So seek refuge with Allah. Surely, He is the All-Hearer, All-Seer.
40:57  The creation of the heavens and the earth is indeed a greater task than the creation of mankind, yet most of mankind does not know.
40:58  And not equal are the blind and those who see; nor are equal those who believe and do righteous deeds, and those who do evil. Little do you think!
40:59  Surely, the Hour (Day of Judgment) is coming and there is no doubt about it, yet most people don’t believe.
40:60  And your Lord said: “Invoke Me, I will respond to you. Surely! Those who are arrogant about My worship, they will surely enter hell in humiliation!”
40:61  It is Allah who has made the night for you so that you may rest in it and the day for you to see. Truly, Allah is Bountiful to mankind, yet most people don’t give thanks.
40:62  That is Allah, your Lord, the Creator of all things, there is no one worthy of worship but He, how then you are turned away (from Him)?
40:63  Thus those who were turned away were denying in the Verses of Allah.
40:64  It is Allah Who has made for you the earth as a residing place and the sky as a canopy, has given you shape and made your shapes good looking and has provided you with good things. That is Allah, your Lord, then blessed be Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
40:65  He is the Ever-living; there is no one worthy of worship but He, so invoke Him making your worship pure (alone) to Him. All the praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
40:66  Say (O Muhammad): “Surely I have been forbidden to worship those whom you worship besides Allah, since there have come to me evidences from my Lord, and I am commanded to submit (in Islam) to the Lord of the worlds.
40:67  It is He Who has created you from dust, then from a sperm, then from a clot, then brings you forth as children, then (make you grow) to reach the age of full strength, then afterwards to be old among you who die before, and you reach an appointed term in order that you may understand.
40:68  It is He Who gives life and causes death. When He decides upon a thing, only He says to it: “Be!” and it is.
40:69  Don’t you see those who dispute about the evidences of Allah? How are they turning away (from the truth)?
40:70  Those who deny the book (this Qur’an) and that with which We sent Our Messengers, then they will come to know (in the fire),
40:71  when iron collars and the chains will be rounded over their necks, they shall be dragged alon
40:72  in the boiling water, then they will be burned in the fire.
40:73  Then it will be said to them: “Where are those whom you used to join in worship as partners
40:74  besides Allah?” They will say: “They have vanished from us. (Now we know that) we did not invoke (worship) anything before.” Thus Allah leads the disbelievers go astray.
40:75  (It will be said): “That was because you used to be delighted in the earth without the right (worship others instead of Allah), and you used to rejoice extremely.
40:76  Enter the gates of hell to abide forever in it, what an evil abode of the arrogant!”
40:77  So be patient (O Muhammad), surely, Allah’s Promise is true. Whether We show you (O Muhammad in this world) some part of that which We have promised them, or We cause you to die, then it is to Us, they all shall be returned.
40:78  And indeed We have sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad); some of them We have related their story to you and some of them whom We have not related their story to you, and it was not given to any Messenger so that he may bring a Verse except by the permission of Allah. So when the Commandment of Allah came, the matter was decided with truth, and the followers of falsehood suffered the loss.
40:79  It is Allah Who has made cattle for you so that you may ride on some of them and eat some of them.
40:80  And you have many benefits in them; they carry you where you wish to reach that are in your hearts and on them as ships carry you (by sea).
40:81  And thus He shows you His signs. So which of the signs of Allah do you deny?
40:82  Have they not traveled through the earth and seen how was the end of those from before them? They were more in numbers than them and mightier in strength, and (left behind them) the traces in the land, yet all that they used to earn did not avail them.
40:83  When their Messengers came to them with clear proofs, they were glad with the (worldly) knowledge which they had; (the punishment) surrounded them at which they mocked.
40:84  So when they saw Our punishment, they said: “We believe in Allah alone and reject all what we associated as partners with Him.”
40:85  But their faith (in Islam) could not avail them when they saw Our punishment. Such was the Way of Allah which were established in (dealing with) His servants. Thus the disbelievers were lost.
