42:1  Ha Mim.
42:2  ´Ayn Sin Qaf.
42:3  This is how Allah reveals to you and those before you, Allah, the mighty and wise.
42:4  To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is on earth, and He is the exalted and great.
42:5  The heavens almost break up from above and the angels glorify the praise of their Lord and ask forgiveness for those on earth, for sure Allah is the forgiving and merciful.
42:6  And those who adopt protectors besides Him, Allah is their keeper and you are not their guardian.
42:7  And this is how We revealed to you an Arabic reading (Qur´an) to warn the leading township and those around it and warn of the day of gathering in which there is no doubt; a group will be in the garden and a group will be in the fire.
42:8  And if Allah pleased He would have made you a single community, but He enters whom He pleases into His mercy, and the wrongdoers have neither protector nor helper.
42:9  Or do they take protectors besides Allah? But Allah is the protector and He revives the dead and He is able to do anything.
42:10  And whatever you differ in, the judgement about it belongs to Allah, that is Allah your Lord, on Him I rely and to Him I repent.
42:11  The originator of the heavens and the earth who gave you partners from amongst yourselves and the cattle in pairs, thus He made you spread out, there is nothing like Him, and He listens and sees.
42:12  To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, He expands the provision for whom He pleases and tightens it, for He knows everything.
42:13  He has ordained for you in the religion what He instructed Nuh (Noah) with and what He revealed to you and what We instructed Ibrahim (Abraham) with and Musa (Moses) and ´Isa (Jesus): that you uphold the religion and do not break up regarding it. It is a big deal for the idolaters what you call them to. Allah chooses whom He pleases to come to Him and guides to Him who repents.
42:14  And they only broke up after the knowledge had reached them out of transgression amongst each other, and had not a word from your Lord gone before until a fixed term, it would have been decided between them, and those who inherited the book after them are in severe doubt about it.
42:15  So call to that and be steadfast as you have been commanded and do not follow their desires and say: I believe in any book Allah has revealed and have been commanded to deal justly with you, Allah is our Lord and your Lord, our deeds are for us and your deeds are for you, there is no dispute between us and you, Allah will gather us and to Him is the journey.
42:16  And those who dispute about Allah after He has been responded to, their argument is void before their Lord and upon them is (His) anger and theirs is a severe punishment.
42:17  Allah is who revealed the book with truth and (set up) the balance, and how can you tell whether the hour might be near.
42:18  Those are in a hurry for it who do not believe in it, and those who believe are anxious about it and know that it is the truth. For sure, those who are in doubt about the hour are in extensive error.
42:19  Allah is kind to His servants; He provides for whom He pleases and He is the strong and mighty.
42:20  Whoever wants the fruit of the hereafter, We increase its fruit for him, and whoever wants the fruit of this world, We give him of it and he has no share in the hereafter.
42:21  Or do they have partners who ordain for them in the religion what Allah did not permit? And if it had not been for the promise of judgement, it would have been decided between them, and for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment.
42:22  You will see the wrongdoers anxious about what they committed and it will fall upon them, and those who believe and do good work will be in the greenery of the gardens (of paradise) where they will have what they please with their Lord, that is the great favour.
42:23  This is the good news Allah gives to His servants who believe and do good work. Say: I do not ask you for a reward for it except love towards relatives, and whoever performs a good deed, We increase good for him through it, for Allah forgives and appreciates.
42:24  Or do they say he invented a lie against Allah? But if Allah pleased, He would seal your heart, and Allah eradicates falsehood and verifies the truth with His words, for He knows what is kept inside.
42:25  And He is who accepts repentance from His servants and overlooks bad deeds and knows what you do.
42:26  And He responds to those who believe and do good work and increases them of His favours, and for those who reject (the truth) is a severe punishment.
42:27  And if Allah expanded the provision for His servants, they would transgress on earth, but He sends in measure what He pleases, for He is informed of and sees His servants.
42:28  And He is who sends down the rain after they despair and spreads out His mercy, and He is the praiseworthy protector.
42:29  And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and all the creatures He spread on it, and He is able to gather them when He pleases.
42:30  And whatever affliction befalls you, it is due to what you yourselves have brought about, and He overlooks a lot.
42:31  And you will not escape on earth, and you have besides Allah no protector nor helper.
42:32  And of His signs are the towering ships traversing the sea.
42:33  If He pleases, He makes the wind stop and they remain motionless on top of it.
42:34  Or He destroys them on account of what they committed, and He overlooks a lot.
42:35  And those who argue about Our signs will know that they have no escape.
42:36  For whatever you have been given is the provision of the life of the world, and what is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who believe and rely on their Lord.
42:37  And those who shun the major sins and indecencies, and whenever they are angry, they forgive.
42:38  And those who respond to their Lord and keep up prayer and decide their affairs in consultation between them and spend of what We have provided them with.
42:39  And those who when they are afflicted by transgression help each other.
42:40  And the punishment for harm is a similar harm, but whoever lets it be and does good, his reward is with Allah, for He does not love the wrongdoers.
42:41  And whoever takes revenge after having been wronged, they should not be prevented.
42:42  Only those should be prevented who wrong people and transgress on earth without right, for those is a painful punishment.
42:43  And whoever is patient and forgives, that is one of the firmest things (to do).
42:44  And whomever Allah lets go astray, He has no protector after that, and you see the wrongdoers, when they see the punishment, say: is there a way of preventing it?
42:45  And you see them presented before it, fearful in humiliation, cautiously looking around, and the believers will say: the losers today are those who lost themselves and their families on the day of resurrection, for sure the wrongdoers will be in a lasting punishment.
42:46  And they had no protectors to help them besides Allah, and whomever Allah lets go astray, there is no way for him.
42:47  Respond to your Lord before a day arrives when there is no avoiding Allah; on that day you will have no refuge and you will have no defence.
42:48  And if they turn away, then We have not sent you as a guardian over them, for your duty is only to convey, and when We let man taste a mercy from Us, he rejoices in it, and when harm afflicts them on account of what they have sent ahead, then man is ungrateful.
42:49  To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, He creates what He pleases, He grants whom He pleases females, and grants whom He pleases males.
42:50  Or He pairs them up as males and females, and He makes whom He pleases barren, for He is knowing and powerful.
42:51  And it is not befitting for a human that Allah should talk to him except by revelation or from behind a barrier, or He sends a messenger to pass on of the revelation what He pleases by His permission, for He is knowing and wise.
42:52  And this is how We revealed to you through a Spirit We command, you had no idea what the book was or the faith, but We made it a light to guide with it whom We please of Our servants, and you certainly guide towards a straight path.
42:53  The path of Allah to whom belongs what is in the heavens and what is on earth, for sure to Allah return all matters.
