Dr. Kamal Omar rendition of Surah The Wind-curved Sandhills, The Dunes, The Sandhills(al-Ahqaf)
---
46:1 H. M.
46:2 Descent of Al-Kitab proceeds from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise .
46:3 We created not the heavens and the earth and whatever is between those two but with a definite purpose and for an appointed term. And those who have disbelieved: they are deviators from what they have been warned against .
46:4 Say: “Have you thought over what you invoke besides Allah? Show me what is that which they have created out of the earth, or is for them a share in the (creation of the) heavens? Come to Me with a Book from (a time period) before this (Al-Kitab) or any traces of Knowledge if you are those who speak the truth.
46:5 And who is more astray than that who invokes besides Allah, such as will not respond him till the Day of Resurrection; and they regarding their calls (are) unaware .
46:6 And when mankind are assembled (on the Day of Resurrection), they (i.e., the false gods) became enemies unto them (who used to invoke them), and became deniers regarding their own worship (at the hands) of these people .
46:7 And when Our manifestly clear Ayaat (Verses) are reproduced before them, those who disbelieved said, regarding Al-Haqq when it reached them, “This is evident sorcery.”
46:8 Do they say he has forged it? Say: “If I have fabricated (or forged) it, then you have no power for (supporting) me against Allah — in any way. He knows more about that wherein you involve (yourselves). For Him (to act) as a Witness is quite sufficient. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, the continuously Merciful.”
46:9 Say: “I am not something unique out of the Messengers; and I do not perceive what will be done with me and nor (I do perceive what will be done) with you people. I do not obey except what has been revealed unto me. And I am not except a plain warner.”
46:10 Say: “Have you (ever) pondered, if it is proceeding from Allah and you disbelieved it — while a witness from amongst Bani Israiel gave testimony in favour of something identical to it, so he developed Faith, while you became arrogant?” Verily, Allah does not guide the nation of transgressors.
46:11 And those who disbelieved said about those who had Believed: “Had it been something good, they would not have preceded us thereto.” And when they did not get guidance through it, then soon they will utter: “This is a lie (quite) ancient."
46:12 And since before this (when the Book is revealing itself on the Last Prophet) Kitab-o-Musa (is) Imam (Leader) and Rahmah (Mercy). And this Book is Musaddiq in the Arabic tongue — so that those who have transgressed may be given warning; while it is as glad tidings for Muhsinun .
46:13 Verily, those who said: “Our Nourisher-Sustainer is Allah and thereafter remain steadfast, then there is no fear over them, and they will not be down in grief .
46:14 They are the companions of the Garden, abiders therein — as a reward for what they used to do (while in their worldly-life) .
46:15 We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents: in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth. And the gestation-period for him and the weaning of him (make) thirty months — until when he attained his full strength and attained forty years, he said, “My Nourisher-Sustainer! Bestow me (the power) that I may pay thanks for Your favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may perform righteous deeds that You may agree with it; and make reform in my offspring for my sake. Truly, I have turned to You, and truly I am (one) of the Muslims.”
46:16 They are those from whom We shall accept the better of what they did, and We will overlook their evil deeds. (They as a group shall stay) among the companions of the Garden — a promise of truth which they have been promised .
46:17 And (on the other hand is) that one who said to his parents: “Fie upon you both! Do you twain hold out a promise to me that I shall be raised up (alive after becoming a part of the dust and mud), and surely, the generations have passed away before me (but none has risen from the dead)?” While those two (the father and the mother) both invoke Allah for help (and admonish their son thus): “What a pitty for you! Develop Faith, surely the Promise of Allah is true.” Still he utters: “This (Al-Kitab) is not but written records of the initial people.”
46:18 They are those against whom the statement has proved to be true among the communities of jinns and mankind, which surely have passed before these people. Surely, they have become the losers .
46:19 And for all (the people there would be) ranks according to what they did; and in order that He may recompense them in full for their deeds. And they will not be subjected to injustice .
46:20 And the Day those who have disbelieved are exposed to the Fire, (they would be told): “You have received in full your due as palatable and desirable things in your life of the immediate world and you fully enjoyed therewith. So, this Day you shall be rewarded a humiliating punishment because you used to behave in arrogance in the land without right; and because you used to rebel and disobey. ”
46:21 And bring to mind the brother of ’Ad when he warned his nation in Al-Ahqaf. And surely, the warners have passed away from in between his two hands (i.e., , before him) and from behind his back (i.e., , after him) — (saying) that: “Obey not except Allah; truly, I fear against you the torment of a Mighty Day.”
46:22 They said, “Have you come to us that you may make us disgusted against our aaliha (gods)? Then approach us with that which you promise us (as a threat), if you are of those who speak the truth” .
46:23 (Prophet Hud) said, “Certainly, what (is a fact is that) the Real Knowledge is with Allah. However, I propagate unto you that wherewith I have been sent, but I, I see you a nation: you are falling in ignorance.”
46:24 Then, when they saw it (as) a dense cloud, one that comes quite in front of their valleys — they said: “This is a thick cloud, about to rain on us.” Nay! (Rather) it (is) which you asked to be hastened. (It is) a wind wherein (exists) a painful torment .
46:25 It shall destroy everything under the order of her Nourisher-Sustainer. So they became (such people that) nothing is seen except their houses. Thus do We recompense the nation of criminals .
46:26 And surely, indeed We established them so firmly wherewith We have not established you. And We have bestowed them (the faculties of) hearing, and eye-sights and hearts; but benifitted them not their hearing, and nor their eye-sights and nor their hearts — anything when they used to oppose Ayaatillah, and got encircled around them that whereat they used to mock and ridicule .
46:27 And surely indeed, We destroyed that which (existed) around you of the towns, and We have scattered the Verses (in the Text of the Scripture on any particular subject) so that they may turn (their attention to Al-Kitab for a detailed view) .
46:28 So why didn’t help them those whom they adopted besides Allah as a way of nearness (to Him) — as aaliha (gods)? Nay! They deserted them. And that is their lie (that they need a false god for attaining nearness to the Real God), and this is what they used to forge and invent (as a belief and as a practice) .
46:29 And when We diverted towards you Nafaran (a group of three to ten individuals) of the jinns: they listen to the Al-Quran. When they stood in the presence thereof, they said: “Be silent”! So when (the recitation) got completed, they went back to their nation as warners .
46:30 They addressed (their nation thus): “O our nation! Verily we, we have listened to the Book, made to descend after Musa, being one that is a confirmation to that what is between its two hands (i.e., what had been already there as Allah’s Scripture). It guides towards the truth and towards the permanent Path.
46:31 O our nation! Respond to Allah’s summoner, and Believe in Him; He will forgive for you out of your sins, and He will protect you from a painful torment ”.
46:32 And whosoever does not respond to Allah’s summoner, then he would not be one who will frustrate (Allah) on the earth; and (there are) not for him, besides Him (any) auliya. Those people (who do not respond to the Message of Allah) are in manifest error .
46:33 Have they not then seen that Allah Who created the heavens and the earth and was not wearied by their creation, is All-Capable that He may revive the dead? Of course! Surely, He is All-Capable over every thing .
46:34 And the Day, those who have disbelieved are exposed to the Fire (of Hell, it will be said to them): “Is this not (in line) with the truth (promised to you)?” They said: “Of course, by our Nourisher-Sustainer!” He said: “Then taste the punishment because you used to disbelieve.”
46:35 So be patient in the same way as remained patient the possessors of strong will from amongst the Messengers; and do not show haste regarding them. As if they, the Day they see what they are promised — they have not stayed except an hour of the day-time. Conveying (the Message is the duty of the Messenger). So, would one be destroyed except the nation of Al-Fasiqun (the rebellious, disobedient people)?
