43:1  Ha. Mim.
43:2  By the book which makes things evident.
43:3  Truly We have made it a Quran in Arabic so that perhaps you may understand.
43:4  And truly it is in Our presence in the mother of the book truly most high full of wisdom.
43:5  Shall We withdraw the remembrance from you in disdain and consign you to oblivion because you are a people who are wasteful to your own souls.
43:6  And how many a prophets did We send among the past nations.
43:7  And never came unto them a prophet but that they used to mock at him.
43:8  So We destroyed those who were greater than them in force and the example of the past nations went forth.
43:9  And if you were to ask them, “Who created the heavens and the earth?” Surely they will say, “The All-mighty, The All-knowing created them.”
43:10  He who made the earth as a cradle for you and He made for you ways in it so that perhaps you may find guidance.
43:11  And He who sends down the rain from the heaven in due measure so We raise a dead land with it. It is thus that you will be brought forth.
43:12  And He it is who has created all the pairs and has made for you from the ship and from the cattle what you ride on.
43:13  So that you may firmly establish yourselves on their backs and then remember the blessings of your Lord when you have firmly established yourself on them and say, “Glory be unto the One who has made these subservient unto us and we were never going to make them subservient on our own
43:14  and truly unto our Lord, we surely are going to turn back.”
43:15  And they have assigned unto Him a portion out of his bondsmen. Truly the human being is surely evidently full of ingratitude.
43:16  Or is it that He has taken unto Himself daughters out of that which He has created while He has favored you with the sons.
43:17  And when one of them is given the glad tidings about that which he has set forth as a parable for Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful], his face turns and remains darkened while he chokes with inner rage.
43:18  Is he then the one who is raised in the ornament and while he is in the course of the argument does not make things evident.
43:19  And they claim the angels, who are themselves servants of Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful], to be females. Did they witness their creation? Their witnessing will soon be written and they will be asked.
43:20  And they said, “Had Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful] so pleased, we would have not worshipped them.” They have no knowledge about that. All they do is to invent lies.
43:21  Or is it that We have given them a book before it so that they are holding fast unto it?
43:22  Nay! They said, “We have indeed found our fathers on a way and we indeed are guided by following their footsteps.”
43:23  And thus it is that We never sent before you a warner in a township but the ones who were indulged in affluence would say, “We have indeed found our fathers on a way and we indeed are going to follow on their footsteps.”
43:24  He [the warner] said, “Even if I bring you better guidance than the one you found your fathers upon?” They said, “We indeed are disbelievers in that with which you have been sent.”
43:25  So We exacted our right from them and look at how was the ending of those who belie.
43:26  And when Abraham said to his father and to his people, “I truly disavow all that you worship
43:27  except He who originated my creation and truly it is He who shall guide me.”
43:28  And he made it a word to remain in his posterity so that perhaps they may return back.
43:29  Nay! I have given these and their fathers temporary enjoyment until the truth came to them and a messenger most evident.
43:30  And when the truth came to them they said, “This is magic and we indeed disbelieve in it.”
43:31  And they said, “If only this Quran was sent down on a great man of the two townships.”
43:32  Are they the ones who distribute the mercy of your Lord? We have distributed among them their livelihood in the life of this world. And We have raised some of them above others in ranks [of this world] so that some of them may take others in their service but the mercy of your Lord is better than all that they gather.
43:33  And had it not been that humankind might become one nation, We would surely have made for those who disbelieve in Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful] roofs for their houses made out of silver and stairs [of silver too] on which they mount.
43:34  And for their houses doors [of silver] and beds [of silver] on which they recline,
43:35  as well as of gold. And all this is but the temporary enjoyment of this world but the hereafter is better in the presence of your Lord for those who revere Him.
43:36  And whosoever turns a blind eye to the remembrance of Ar-Rahman [The All-Merciful], We will decree for him a Satan and he will become for him a close companion.
43:37  And they indeed do hinder them from the way while they think that they are indeed well guided.
43:38  Until when he comes to Us, he will say, “I wish there had been between me and you the distance between the two easts, how woeful the companion [you are].”
43:39  But since you had wronged your own souls, it will never be of any benefit to you today that you are partners in the punishment.
43:40  Is it you who can make the deaf to hear or who can guide the blind and one who indeed is in most evident misguidance?
43:41  Even if We were to take you away, surely We are going to exact Our right from them.
43:42  Or that We show you that which We had forewarned them about, surely We have enforcing power over them.
43:43  Therefore hold fast unto that which We have inspired to you. Truly you are on a path most upright.
43:44  And indeed it [the Quran] is truly a remembrance for you [O Muhammad] and for your people and in time you will all be questioned.
43:45  And inquire of those We have sent before you from among Our messengers, “Did We ever appoint other deities who were worshipped besides Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful]?”
43:46  And We indeed sent Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and to his chieftains and he said, “Truly I am a messenger of the Lord of the worlds.”
43:47  But when he came to them with Our signs, lo! They held them in derision.
43:48  And We didn’t show them a sign except that it was greater than its sister and We seized them with the punishment so that perhaps they may return.
43:49  And they said, “O you the magician! Invoke your Lord for Us by virtue of the covenant which He has made with you, truly we are surely going to accept the guidance.”
43:50  But when We lifted the punishment from them lo! They are the ones who broke promise.
43:51  And Pharaoh proclaimed among his people he said, “Is the kingdom of Egypt not mine and do these rivers not flow beneath me? Will you not then see?
43:52  Am I not better than this who is an insignificant and who hardly makes himself clear?
43:53  Then why is it that armlets of gold have not been bestowed on him or that angels have not come with him in pageant.”
43:54  Thus he incited his people and so they obeyed him. Truly they were a people who transgressed against Allah’s commandment.
43:55  So at length when they caused Us grief, We exacted Our right from them so We drowned them altogether.
43:56  So We made them a precedent and an example for those yet to come.
43:57  And when the similitude of the son of Mary was set forth, lo! Your people raise an uproar about it.
43:58  And they said, “Are our deities better or he [Jesus]?” They only set it forth for you for the sake of argument. Nay! They are a people who are given to contention.
43:59  He is but a servant on whom We bestowed Our grace and We made him an example for the children of Israel.
43:60  And had We pleased We could have made of you angels succeeding one another as vicegerents in the earth.
43:61  And he [Jesus] indeed is truly a mark of the final hour therefore be in no confusion about it and follow me [Muhammad]. This is a path most upright.
43:62  And do not let Satan hinder you. Truly he is for you an enemy most evident.
43:63  And when Jesus came with the clear signs he said, “I have indeed come to you with the wisdom and so that I make clear to you some of that in which you disagree. Therefore revere Allah and obey me.”
43:64  Truly Allah, He alone is my Lord and your Lord therefore serve Him. This is a path most upright.
43:65  But the parties disagreed among them and woe unto those who wronged their own souls from the punishment of a painful day.
43:66  What are they waiting for other than the hour that it should come upon them suddenly while they are not aware.
43:67  Intimate friends that day will be enemies for one another except those who revere Allah.
43:68  “O My servants! There is no fear on you today nor will you grieve.”
43:69  Those who believed in Our signs while they submitted.
43:70  “Enter the garden you and your spouses with your hearts filled with joy.”
43:71  They will be waited upon with trays of gold and with goblets and therein will be all that the souls could desire and the eyes could find delight in while you will abide therein forever.
43:72  Those are the gardens which you are made to inherit because of all that you used to do.
43:73  Therein for you will be abundance of fruits from which you will eat.
43:74  Truly the evildoers will be in the punishment of hellfire to abide therein forever.
43:75  It will not be made to relent on them while they will be full of despair therein.
43:76  And We did not wrong them in the least but it is only they who wronged their own souls.
43:77  And they cried out, “O Malik! [Guardian of the hellfire] let your Lord make an end of us.” He said, “Truly you are going to stay on.”
43:78  We have indeed brought the truth unto you but most of you detest the truth.
43:79  Or is it that they have made a resolve about a matter and We too are indeed going to make a resolve.
43:80  Or do they think that We do not hear their inner thoughts and their secret counsels? Nay! Our messengers are present with them taking records.
43:81  Say, “If there were to be a son for Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful], I indeed would be the first of the servants.”
43:82  Glory be unto the Lord of the heavens and of the earth, [and glory be unto] Lord of the throne, from all that they attribute [to Him].
43:83  So let them indulge in their idle palavers and let them play until they meet the day of theirs of which they are promised.
43:84  And He it is who is deity in the heaven and deity in the earth and He alone is The All-wise, The All-knowing.
43:85  And blessed is He for whom is the kingdom of the heavens and of the earth and all that is between them and with Him lies the knowledge of the hour and unto Him you will be returned.
43:86  And those that they invoke besides Him will have no power to the intercession, except one who witnesses by the truth. And they know this very well.
43:87  And if you do ask them, “Who created them?” They will surely say, “It is Allah.” Where then are you turned away?
43:88  And his [Prophet Muhammad] utterance, “O my Lord! These truly are a people who do not believe.”
43:89  So turn away from them and say, “Peace.” And in time they will come to know.
