45:1  Haa. Me’im!
45:2  The revelation knowledge of the Book, (this ‘Qur’ān’), is from Allâh, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
45:3  Indeed, in the heavens and on the earth are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for the ‘Monotheistic Believers’.
45:4  And in the creation of yourselves and what He scattered (through the earth) of moving creatures are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for a people who have a definite faith.
45:5  And in the difference of night and day, in the provision which Allâh sends down from the sky and then resuscitates it after its death, and in the changing of the winds, are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) for a people who are able to perceive the intended meaning of (His Signs).
45:6  These are the (Holy) ‘Verses’ of Allâh, which We recite to you with truth. In which statement other than Allâh and His ‘Verses’ do they believe?
45:7  Woe unto every sinful liar,
45:8  Who hears the (Holy) ‘Verses’ of Allâh being recited to him, then displays an arrogant attitude towards them as if he had not heard them. Thus, announce to him the agonizing chastisement.
45:9  When he learns something from Our (Holy) ‘Verses’, he takes them for a jest. For such there will be a humiliating chastisement.
45:10  In front of them, there is hellfire, and that which they have earned will avail them not, nor those whom they have taken as guardians besides Allâh. And they will be subjected to a tremendous chastisement.
45:11  This (‘Qur’ān’) is the source of inner guidance and spiritual transformation. Those who disbelieve in the (Holy) ‘Verses’ of their Lord will be subjected to an extremely agonizing punishment.
45:12  Allâh is the One Who made subservient unto you the sea so that the ships may run therein by His Command, that you may seek of His Bounty, and that you may show gratitude (to Him for His endless blessings) .
45:13  He also made subservient to you all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth; it is all from Him. Indeed, there are signs (of Allâh’s power & glory) in this for a people who ruminate (on the nature of existence).
45:14  Tell those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism to forgive those who do not look for the days of Allâh , so much so that He will recompense the people for what they used to earn.
45:15  Whoever does righteous good deed, it is for the benefit of himself, and whoever does evil, it is against himself. Then to your Lord, you are all destined to be brought back.
45:16  Verily we gave the ‘Children of Israel’ the ‘Scripture’, the authority and ‘Prophethood’, provided them with wholesome good things and preferred them over all the other nations.
45:17  We also gave them the knowledge of truth about (divine) matters. Thus, they did not differ until after knowledge of Truth had come to them, out of jealousy (and animosity) among themselves. Definitely, Your Lord will judge between them on the ‘Day of Resurrection’ concerning that wherein they used to differ.
45:18  Then We put you, (‘Muhammad’), on a clear way of (Our) commandment. Therefore, follow it, and take not in the self-deceived beliefs of those who lack knowledge (of Allâh) for the epistemic.
45:19  Absolutely, they can avail you naught against (the wrath of) Allâh. It must be the case that the iniquitous are allies of one another while Allâh is a close ally of the ‘Pious’ (whose faith is unfeigned).
45:20  This (‘Qur’ān’) is absolutely an evident enlightenment for mankind, a source of spiritual insight, and divine clemency, for a people who have a definite faith in It.
45:21  Or do those who commit evil deeds think that We shall make their life and death identical to those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism and do righteous good deeds (in the worldly life)? Evil is what they judge!
45:22  Allâh created the heavens and earth for a specific reason. It must be the case that every ‘Human Self’ will be duly recompensed for his deeds. They will not be wronged.
45:23  Have you seen the one who has taken his own whim as his god? Thus, Allâh sends him astray purposely, seals up his hearing and his heart, and places on his insight a covering. Then who can guide him after Allâh (has condemned him)? Will you not then celebrate the praise of Allâh and declare His divine glory?
45:24  They say: "We only live in this ‘worldly life’. We live and die. And nothing causes us to perish but a long course of time.” They have of that no knowledge. They are only speculating.
45:25  When Our (Holy) ‘Verses’ are recited to them as revelation in the knowledge of Allâh, their only argument is that they say: "Bring back our forefathers, if you are truthful."
45:26  Say: "Allâh gives you life, then causes you to die, then will He bring you together to the ‘Day of Resurrection’ whereof there is no doubt. But most of the people do not posses enough knowledge (of Allâh).
45:27  Unto Allâh belongs the (absolute) sovereignty of the heavens and of the earth. On the day when the ‘Hour’ of (Reckoning) comes to pass, there will be a great loss to the those who used to promote falsehood.
45:28  You will behold each nation kneeling down. Each nation will be called to its record. They will be told: "On this day, you are going to be requited for what you used to do."
45:29  This is Our Book (of Deeds), speaking about you with truth. Indeed, We put everything that you used to do in writing!
45:30  Thus those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism and do righteous good deeds (in this ‘worldly life’), their Lord will admit them into His (divine) clemency. This is ultimate success and the supreme one.
45:31  But as for those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) , (it will be said unto them): "Were not Our ‘Verses’ recited to you? But you displayed an arrogant attitude and you were a folk of ungodly sinners."
45:32  When it was said: "definitely, the promise of Allâh is true, and that the ‘Hour’ (of Reckoning) is inevitable." You said: “We do not know what the ‘Hour’ (of Reckoning) is. We think it to be nothing more than a mere speculation. Therefore, we are by no means convinced.”
45:33  The evil of their deeds will appear to them, and they will be encompassed by what they used to scoff.
45:34  It will be said: "This ‘Day’ We will forget you, just as you forgot the meeting of this day of yours. Your abode is going to be Hellfire, and there is none to help you.
45:35  That is because you made the (Holy) ‘Verses’ of Allâh a (source of) mockery, being deceived by this ‘worldly life’.” Therefore, on that day, they will not be taken out of it, nor will they be allowed to make amends.
45:36  All the praises and gratitude belong to Allâh, the Lord of the heavens, the Lord of the earth, and the Lord of all the worlds!
45:37  Unto Him belongs the Majesty in the heavens and on the earth, and He is the All-Mighty, the All- Wise.
