41:1  Ḥa, Ma«m
41:2  A [gradually] sent down [revelation] from the All-beneficent, the All-merciful
41:3  [this is] a Book whose signs have been elaborated, an Arabic Qur’an, for a people who have knowledge
41:4  a bearer of good news and a warner. But most of them turn away [from it], [and] so they do not listen
41:5  They say, ‘Our hearts are in veils [which shut them off] from what you invite us to, and there is a deafness in our ears, and there is a curtain between us and you. So act [as your faith requires]; we too are acting [according to our own].&rsquo
41:6  Say, ‘I am just a human being like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is the One God. So be steadfast toward Him and plead to Him for forgiveness.’ And woe to the polytheist
41:7  —those who do not pay the zakat and disbelieve in the Hereafter
41:8  As for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, there will be an everlasting reward for them
41:9  Say, ‘Do you really disbelieve in Him who created the earth in two days, and ascribe partners to Him? That is the Lord of all the worlds!’
41:10  He set in it firm mountains [rising] above it, and blessed it and ordained therein its [various] means of sustenance in four days, alike for all the seekers [of the means of sustenance]
41:11  Then He turned to the heaven, and it was smoke, and He said to it and to the earth, ‘Come! Willingly or unwillingly!’ They said, ‘We come heartily.’
41:12  Then He set them up as seven heavens in two days, and revealed in each heaven its ordinance. We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and guarded them. That is the ordaining of the All-mighty, the All-knowing
41:13  But if they turn away, say, ‘I warn you of a thunderbolt, like the thunderbolt of ‘a€d and Thamud.’
41:14  When the apostles came to them, before them and in their own time, saying, ‘Worship no one except Allah!’ They said, ‘Had our Lord wished, He would certainly have sent down angels [to us]. We indeed disbelieve in what you have been sent with.’
41:15  As for [the people of] ‘a€d, they acted arrogantly in the earth unduly, and they said, ‘Who is more powerful than us?’ Did they not see that Allah, who created them, is more powerful than them? They used to impugn Our signs
41:16  so We unleashed upon them an icy gale during ill-fated days, that We might make them taste the punishment of disgrace in the life of the world. Yet the punishment of the Hereafter is surely more disgraceful, and they will not be helped
41:17  As for [the people of] Thamud, We guided them, but they preferred blindness to guidance. So the bolt of a humiliating punishment seized them because of what they used to earn
41:18  And We delivered those who had faith and were Godwary
41:19  The day when the enemies of Allah are marched out toward the Fire, and they shall be held in check
41:20  When they come to it, their hearing will bear witness against them and their sight and their skins concerning what they used to do
41:21  They will say to their skins, ‘Why did you bear witness against us?’ They will say, ‘We were given speech by Allah, who gave speech to all things. He created you the first time, and to Him you are being brought back
41:22  You did not use to conceal yourselves lest your hearing should bear witness against you, or [for that matter] your sight, or your skin, but you thought that Allah did not know most of what you did
41:23  That misjudgment that you entertained about your Lord ruined you. So you became losers.’
41:24  Should they be patient, the Fire is their abode; and should they seek to propitiate, they will not be redeemed
41:25  We have assigned them companions who make to seem decorous to them whatever is before them and whatever is behind them, and the word became due against them, as it did against the nations that passed away before them of jinn and humans. They were indeed losers
41:26  The faithless say, ‘Do not listen to this Qur’an and hoot it down so that you may prevail [over the Apostle].&rsquo
41:27  We will surely make the faithless taste a severe punishment, and We will surely requite them by the worst of what they used to do
41:28  That is the requital of the enemies of Allah —the Fire! In it they will have an everlasting abode, as a requital for their impugning Our signs
41:29  The faithless will say, ‘Our Lord! Show us those who led us astray from among jinn and humans so that we may trample them under our feet, so that they may be among the lowermost!’
41:30  Indeed those who say, ‘Our Lord is Allah!’ and then remain steadfast, the angels descend upon them, [saying,] ‘Do not fear, nor be grieved! Receive the good news of the paradise which you have been promised
41:31  We are your friends in the life of this world and in the Hereafter, and you will have in it whatever your souls desire, and you will have in it whatever you ask for
41:32  as a hospitality from One all-forgiving, all-merciful.’
41:33  Who has a better call than him who summons to Allah and acts righteously and says, ‘Indeed I am one of the muslims’
41:34  Good and evil [conduct] are not equal. Repel [evil] with what is best. [If you do so,] behold, he between whom and you was enmity, will be as though he were a sympathetic friend
41:35  But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except the greatly endowed
41:36  Should a temptation from Satan disturb you, seek the protection of Allah. Indeed He is the All-hearing, the All-knowing
41:37  Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate to the sun, nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah who created them, if it is Him that you worship
41:38  But if they disdain [the worship of Allah], those who are near your Lord glorify Him night and day, and they are not wearied
41:39  Among His signs is that you see the earth desolate; but when We send down water upon it, it stirs and swells. Indeed He who revives it is the reviver of the dead. Indeed He has power over all things
41:40  Indeed those who commit sacrilege in Our signs are not hidden from Us. Is someone who is cast in the Fire better off, or someone who arrives safely on the Day of Resurrection? Act as you wish; indeed He sees best what you do
41:41  Indeed those who defy the Reminder when it comes to them. . . . Indeed it is an august Book
41:42  falsehood cannot approach it, from before it nor from behind it, a [gradually] sent down [revelation] from One all-wise, all-laudable
41:43  Nothing is said to you except what has already been said [earlier] to the apostles before you. Indeed your Lord is forgiving and One who metes out a painful retribution
41:44  Had We made it a non-Arabic Qur’an, they would have surely said, ‘Why have not its signs been articulated?’ ‘What! A non-Arabian [scripture] and an Arabian [prophet]!?’ Say, ‘For those who have faith, it is a guidance and healing; but as for those who are faithless, there is a deafness in their ears and it is lost to their sight.’ They are [as if they were] called from a distant place
41:45  Certainly We gave Moses the Book, but differences arose about it; and were it not for a prior decree of your Lord, judgement would have been made between them, for they are indeed in grave doubt concerning it
41:46  Whoever acts righteously, it is for his own soul, and whoever does evil, it is to its detriment, and your Lord is not tyrannical to the servants
41:47  On Him devolves the knowledge of the Hour, and no fruit emerges from its covering and no female conceives or delivers except with His knowledge. On the day when He will call out to them, ‘Where are My partners?’ They will say, ‘We have apprised You that there is no witness amongst us.’
41:48  What they used to invoke before has forsaken them, and they know there is no escape for them
41:49  Man is never wearied of supplicating for good, and should any ill befall him, he becomes hopeless, despondent
41:50  And if We let him have a taste of Our mercy after distress has befallen him, he will surely say, ‘This is my due! I do not think the Hour will ever set in, and in case I am returned to my Lord, I will indeed have the best [reward] with Him.’ But We will surely inform the faithless about what they have done, and will surely make them taste a harsh punishment
41:51  When We bless man, he is disregardful and turns aside; but when an ill befalls him, he makes protracted supplications
41:52  Say, ‘Tell me, if it is from Allah and you disbelieve in it, who will be more astray than someone who is in extreme defiance.’
41:53  Soon We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in their own souls until it becomes clear to them that He is the Real. Is it not sufficient that your Lord is witness to all things
41:54  Look! They are indeed in doubt about the encounter with their Lord! Look! He indeed comprehends all things
