41:1  Ha Meem.
41:2  This is a Revelation from the Kind, the Caring;
41:3  a Book whose verses are clearly explained, an Arabic Quran for people who know.
41:4  It gives good news and warnings, though most of them will turn away and won’t listen.
41:5  They say, “Our hearts are hardy to what you invite us to; we are hard of hearing and there is a barrier between us and you, therefore do as you like, and we shall do what we like.”
41:6  Say: “I am a human like you; except that I receive revelation: your Lord is One God, so take the straight path to Him and seek forgiveness. Woe to the idolaters.
41:7  Those who don’t give charity and deny the Hereafter.
41:8  But the believers who are righteous will have a never-ending reward.
41:9  Say: “Do you deny the one Who created the Earth in two days? You have set up rivals to the Lord of the worlds.”
41:10  He made the mountains, blessed it, and in four days determined its provisions for seekers.
41:11  Then He focused on the sky and it was smoke so He said to it and the Earth: “Come into existence whether willingly or unwillingly.” They replied, “We shall come willingly.”
41:12  In two days He formed them into seven skies, and to each sky He assigned its functions. We decorated the nearest sky with stars and made it safe. That’s the plan of the Almighty, the All-Knowing
41:13  If they turn away say: “I warned you of a thunderbolt like the thunderbolt of Ad and Thamud.”
41:14  When their messengers came to them from all sides saying, “Worship Allah alone,” they replied, “Had Our Lord so wanted He would have sent angels; we refuse to accept what you have been sent with.”
41:15  The people of Ad behaved arrogantly and unjustly on the land, and boasted, “Who is stronger than us?” Didn’t they realise Allah created them, He is stronger than them? But they still rejected Our messages.
41:16  So, over a few ill-fated days We sent a violent roaring wind to give them a taste of the shocking punishment in this life and an even more shameful one in the Hereafter, and they won’t be helped.
41:17  Similarly, We gave the people of Thamud guidance, but they preferred blindness instead of guidance, so they were struck by a thunderbolt of a shocking punishment for what they did.
41:18  But, We saved the obedient believers
41:19  The Day all enemies of Allah are gathered in Hell, they will be divided into groups, and
41:20  when they reach it, their ears, eyes and skins will testify against them for their misdeeds.
41:21  They will ask their skins, “Why did you testify against us?” They will reply, “Allah is the One Who taught everything to speak and has taught us to speak too, and He created you the first time and to Him you will be returned.”
41:22  You didn’t try to hide your evil deeds from your ears, your eyes and your skins. But you thought that Allah didn’t know what you did.
41:23  That’s what you imagined about your Lord and it ruined you, so you became losers.
41:24  Even if they are patient now, the Fire will be their home. No matter how much forgiveness they seek, they won’t be pardoned
41:25  We appointed companions for them that make things seem attractive for them everywhere. Sentence was passed against them, the jinns and people before them: “They will be the losers”.
41:26  The disbelievers shouted, “Don’t listen to this Quran; you can drown it out with noisy laughter so you would prevail.”
41:27  We shall give the disbelievers a taste of severe punishment and repay them for the worst deed they did.
41:28  A payback for the enemies of Allah: Hell, where they will be forever, a reward for rejecting Our messages!
41:29  The disbelievers will say, “Our Lord, show the jinn and humans who misguided us, so we may crush them under our feet to make them lowest of the low.
41:30  People who say, “Allah is Our Lord,” and are steadfast are visited and motivated by the angels: “Don’t fear nor be sad, be happy with the news of promised Paradise.
41:31  We are your friends in this life and the Hereafter, and you will have whatever your souls want in Paradise: every wish fulfilled.
41:32  A warm hospitality from the Forgiver, the Caring Lord.
41:33  Whose speech can be better than the one who calls to Allah and acts righteously and openly says: “I am a Muslim.”
41:34  Good and evil aren’t the same; counter evil with goodness, and if there was any enmity between you and the other, he will become a dearest friend.
41:35  Only the patient are like this; they are fortunate.
41:36  If Satan tempts you, seek Allah’s protection. He is the Listener, the Knower
41:37  The night and the day, the sun and the moon are among His signs. Don’t worship the sun or the moon; worship Allah their Creator, if you truly worship Him.
41:38  If they are arrogant about worshipping Allah, so what, there are many in His service who glorify Him day and night, they never get tired.
41:39  You will see among His signs a dry, barren land; when We send rain it swells and plants grow there – the One Who gives life to it will bring the dead to life. He has power over all things.
41:40  Those who reject Our verses aren’t hidden from Us. So how can the one thrown in the Fire be better than the one who comes safely through on Judgement Day? Do what you like; He sees what you do
41:41  Those who deny the Quran when it comes to them do not realise that it is a honourable book
41:42  that cannot be influenced by falsehood from any angle, a revelation from the Wise, the Praiseworthy.
41:43  Messenger, what is said to you was said to the messengers before you; Your Lord is the Forgiver and the Lord of a painful torment.
41:44  Had We written the Quran in a foreign language they would have complained: “If only its verses were made clear.” What, in a foreign language yet he is an Arab: “It is a guidance and a healing for those who believe, but those who don’t believe are hard of hearing and blind to it, as though they are being called from far away.”
41:45  We gave Musa the Book, but disagreement arose about it too. If Your Lord’s sentence had not been passed against them, their disagreements would have been settled. They are doubtful and distrustful
41:46  Whoever does good does so for himself, and whoever does evil harms himself. Your Lord is not unjust to His servants.
41:47  Allah alone has the knowledge of the Final Hour: no fruit comes out of its cover, neither a female conceives nor gives birth except with His knowledge. On that Day He will ask them: “Where are my partners?” They will say, “We declare before You we aren’t their witness.”
41:48  Those they worshipped before will have vanished, and they will know there is no escape
41:49  Man never tires of praying for good, but at times of difficulty he becomes hopeless and sad.
41:50  When We are kind to him after a misfortune he claims, “This is all my doing, and I don’t think that the Final Hour will come, and even if I’m returned to my Lord I’m sure to receive Paradise from Him.” We will tell them what they did and torment them with a severe punishment.
41:51  When We are gracious to a person he turns away and stays aloof, but at times of difficulty he prays and prays
41:52  Say: “Consider this: if this Quran is really from Allah and you deny it, who would be the biggest loser other than the one who opposed it openly?”
41:53  Soon We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in themselves so the Truth becomes clear to them. Isn’t Your Lord enough, a witness over all things?
41:54  Beware! They are in doubt about meeting Their Lord. Beware! Everything is in His grasp.In the name of Allah, the Kind the Caring.
