40:1  Ha Mim.
40:2  The revelation of the book is from Allah the mighty and knowing.
40:3  He who forgives sin and accepts repentance, who has severe punishment and full power, there is no god but Him, to Him is the journey.
40:4  Only those who reject (the truth) argue about the signs of Allah, so be not deceived by how they move about in the land.
40:5  The people of Nuh (Noah) before them and the allies after them denied, and each community wanted to overtake their messenger and argued in ignorance in order to refute the truth, then I overtook them, and how was My punishment!
40:6  And this is how your Lord´s word about those who reject (the truth) comes true that they are inmates of the fire.
40:7  Those who carry the throne and those surrounding it glorify the praise of their Lord and believe in Him and ask for forgiveness for those who believe: our Lord, Your mercy and knowledge extends to everything, so forgive those who repent and follow Your way and safeguard them from the punishment of hell-fire.
40:8  Our Lord, and let them enter the gardens of Eden which you have promised them, and those who are righteous amongst their parents and partners and children, for you are the mighty and wise.
40:9  And safeguard them from (the punishment for) bad deeds, and whomever You safeguard (from the punishment for) bad deeds on that day You have already shown mercy, and that is the ultimate success.
40:10  Those who reject (the truth) will be called: Allah´s aversion is greater than your own aversion when you were called to faith but rejected.
40:11  They will say: our Lord, you made us die twice and revived us twice, then we acknowledged our sins, so is there a way out?
40:12  This is your outcome because when Allah alone was called, you rejected, and when something was associated with Him, you believed, then the judgement belongs to Allah, the exalted and great.
40:13  He is who shows you His signs and sends for you from the sky provision, and only those who repent reflect.
40:14  So call Allah, making the religion sincere for Him, even if the rejecters resent it.
40:15  He is above all ranks and owns the throne, He sends the Spirit by His command to whom He pleases of His servants to warn of the day of meeting.
40:16  On the day they are exposed nothing of them will be hidden from Allah. To whom does the kingdom belong today? to Allah the one and dominant.
40:17  Today every soul will be repaid for what it has earned, there is no injustice today, for Allah is swift in counting.
40:18  And warn them of the day to come when the hearts will be stuck near the throats; the wrongdoers will have no close confidant nor mediator to be followed.
40:19  He knows every secret glance and what is hidden inside.
40:20  And Allah decides with the truth, and those they call besides Him cannot decide anything, for Allah listens and sees.
40:21  Do they not travel on earth and see what the outcome was like for those before them? They were greater in power and impact on earth than them, then Allah seized them on account of their sins, and they had no defence against Allah.
40:22  This is because their messengers came to them with clear proofs but they rejected, so Allah seized them, for He is strong and severe in punishment.
40:23  And We sent Musa (Moses) with Our signs and a clear authority.
40:24  To Pharaoh and Haman and Qarun (Korah), but they said: a lying magician.
40:25  Then when he brought them the truth from Us, they said: kill the children of those who believe with him and spare their women, and the plot of those who reject (the truth) is only in vain.
40:26  And Pharaoh said: let me kill Musa (Moses), then he can call his Lord, for I fear that he will change your religion or bring about corruption on earth.
40:27  And Musa (Moses) said: I seek refuge in my Lord from every arrogant person who does not believe in the day of reckoning.
40:28  And a believing man from the family of Pharaoh who had hidden his belief said: are you going to kill a man for saying ´my Lord is Allah´ whilst he has already brought you clear proofs from his Lord? And if he is a liar, then his lie is upon him, and if he is truthful, some of what he has promised you will afflict you, for Allah does not guide whoever is an exaggerating liar.
40:29  Oh my people, yours is the kingdom today and you dominate on earth, but who will help us against Allah´s harm when it reaches us. Pharaoh said: I only show you what I see and I only guide you to the way of good conduct.
40:30  And the one who believed said: oh my people, I fear for you the like of the day of the allies.
40:31  The like of the fate of the people of Nuh (Noah), ´Ad, Thamud and those after them, and Allah does not want to wrong His servants.
40:32  And oh my people, I fear for you the day of being called.
40:33  The day when you will turn your backs, you will have no protector against Allah, and whomever Allah lets go astray, there is no-one to guide him.
40:34  And Yusuf (Joseph) already brought you clear proofs before, but you remained in doubt about what he brought you until when he passed away you said: Allah will not raise a messenger after him. This is how Allah lets the extravagant and doubtful go astray;
40:35  Those who argue about the signs of Allah without authority given by Him, which is highly offensive to Allah and those who believe. This is how Allah imprints on the heart of every arrogant tyrant.
40:36  And Pharaoh said: oh Haman, build me a structure so that I can reach the connections;
40:37  The connections to the heavens and take a look at the god of Musa (Moses), and I surely consider him a liar. And this is how his bad deeds appealed to Pharaoh and he was diverted from the way, and the plot of Pharaoh lead only to destruction.
40:38  And the one who believed said: oh my people, follow me, I will guide you to the way of good conduct.
40:39  Oh my people, this worldly life is only a provision, and the hereafter is the lasting abode.
40:40  Whoever does bad, he will only be rewarded with the like of it, and whoever does good, male or female, and is a believer, those will enter the garden where they will be provided for without counting.
40:41  And oh my people, how come I call you to the garden and you call me to the fire?
40:42  You call me to reject Allah and associate with Him what I have no knowledge of, and I call you to the mighty and forgiving.
40:43  Without fail that which you call me to has no claim in this world and the next, and our return is to Allah, and the extravagant will be inhabitants of the fire.
40:44  Then you will remember what I said to you and I will entrust my affairs to Allah, for Allah sees His servants.
40:45  Then Allah protected him against the evil they were scheming whilst the family of Pharaoh was surrounded by the worst punishment.
40:46  The fire to which they will be presented in the mornings and evenings, and on the day the hour happens: let the family of Pharaoh enter the severest punishment.
40:47  And they dispute with each other in the fire, then the weak say to the arrogant: we followed you, so will you avert a portion of the fire from us?
40:48  The arrogant say: we are all in it, for Allah has already judged between His servants.
40:49  And those in the fire say to the guards of hell: call your Lord to reduce for us a day of the punishment.
40:50  They say: did not your messengers reach you with clear proofs? They say: sure. They say: then call, and the call of those who rejected (the truth) is only in vain.
40:51  For We help Our messengers and the believers in the worldly life and on the day the witnesses stand up.
40:52  On the day when their excuses will not benefit the wrongdoers and they will be cursed and theirs is a bad abode.
40:53  And We gave Musa (Moses) guidance and made the Children of Israel inherit the book.
40:54  A guidance and reminder for those with understanding.
40:55  So be patient, for the promise of Allah is true, and ask for forgiveness for your sin and glorify the praise of your Lord in the evenings and mornings.
40:56  Those who argue about the signs of Allah without authority given by Him, they are only filled with pride and will not win the argument, so seek refuge in Allah, for He listens and sees.
40:57  The creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind, but most of mankind don´t know.
40:58  And the blind and the seeing are not the same, nor those who believe and do good work and the evil-doer, little do you reflect.
40:59  The hour will come, there is no doubt in it, but most of mankind don´t believe.
40:60  And your Lord says: call Me, I will respond to you, for those who are too arrogant to serve Me will enter hell in submission.
40:61  Allah is who made the night for you to rest in and the day to see, for Allah is full of favours for mankind, but most of mankind are ungrateful.
40:62  This is Allah for you, your Lord, the creator of everything, there is no god but Him, so where to are you diverted?
40:63  This is how those are diverted who dispute the signs of Allah.
40:64  Allah is who made the earth firm for you and the sky a cover and shaped you and made your shape beautiful and provided well for you, this is Allah for you, your Lord, so exalted is Allah the Lord of all worlds.
40:65  He is the living, there is no god but Him, so call Him, making the religion sincere for Him, praised is Allah the Lord of all worlds.
40:66  Say: I have been forbidden from serving those you call besides Allah when the clear proofs reached me from my Lord, and have been commanded to submit to the Lord of all worlds.
40:67  He is who created you from soil, then from a sperm, then from an implant, then He brings you out as a child in order for you to reach your strength, then you are going to age, and amongst you is he who dies before, and you will reach a fixed term so that you might understand.
40:68  He is who gives life and death, and when He decides a matter, He simply says to it "Be!", then it is.
40:69  Do you not consider how those who argue about the signs of Allah are diverted?
40:70  Those who deny the book and what We sent Our messengers with, but soon they will know.
40:71  When the cuffs will be on their necks and the chains, they will be dragged.
40:72  Through boiling water, then they will be heated in the fire.
40:73  Then they will be told: where is what you associated?
40:74  Besides Allah? They say: they have deserted us, but we did not call on anything before, that is how Allah leads those astray who reject (Him).
40:75  This is on account of you having rejoiced on earth without right and having been triumphant.
40:76  Enter the gates of hell to remain there, for bad is the home of the arrogant.
40:77  So be patient, for the promise of Allah is true, then whether We show you some of what We have promised them or take you away, to Us they will return.
40:78  We previously sent messengers, some of whom We related to you and some of whom We did not relate to you, and no messenger would bring a sign except with the permission of Allah, then when the command of Allah came, it was decided with truth and the followers of falsehood were the losers by then.
40:79  Allah is who gave you the cattle to ride on and to eat.
40:80  And you have benefits in them and can attain with them things you desire, and on them and on the ship you are carried.
40:81  And He shows you His signs, so which of the signs of Allah do you dislike?
40:82  Do they not travel on earth and see what the outcome was like for those before them? They were more numerous than them and stronger in power and impact on earth, but what they gathered did not benefit them.
40:83  Then when their messengers came to them with clear proofs, they rejoiced in whatever knowledge they had, and what they made fun of overcame them.
40:84  Then when they saw Our affliction they said: we believe in Allah alone and reject what we associated with Him.
40:85  But their belief did not benefit them when they saw Our affliction. This is the custom of Allah which already came to pass amongst His servants, and those who reject (the truth) were the losers by then.
