46:1  Ha Mim.
46:2  The revelation of the book is from Allah the mighty and wise.
46:3  We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them except with truth and for a fixed term, and those who reject (the truth) turn away from what they have been warned of.
46:4  Say: have you considered that which you call on besides Allah? Show me what they created of the earth, or do they have a share in the heavens? Bring me a book preceding this one or a trace of knowledge if you are truthful.
46:5  And who is more astray than who calls besides Allah on those who will not respond to him until the day of resurrection and who are unaware of their prayers?
46:6  And when mankind is gathered, they will be enemies to them and will reject their service.
46:7  And when Our clear signs are recited to them, those who reject (the truth) say about the truth when it reaches them: this is plain magic.
46:8  Or do they say he invented it? Say: if I invented it, then you are powerless to help me against Allah, He knows best what you engage in, He is sufficient as witness between me and you and He is the forgiving and merciful.
46:9  Say: I am not the first of the messengers, and I don´t know what will happen to me nor to you, I only follow what has been revealed to me and I am only a clear warner.
46:10  Say: have you considered that if it is from Allah and you reject it - whereas a witness from the Children of Israel gives evidence to something similar, then he believes - that you are arrogant? For Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.
46:11  And those who reject (the truth) say to those who believe: if it was good, they would not have got it before us. And as they are not guided by it they will say: this is an ancient falsehood.
46:12  And before it came the book of Musa (Moses) as a guide and mercy, and this book is a confirmation in the Arabic language to warn those who do wrong and give good news to those who do good.
46:13  Those who say: our Lord is Allah, then uphold it, they shall have no fear nor worry.
46:14  Those are the inhabitants of the garden in which they remain as a reward for what they used to do.
46:15  And We admonished man to be good to his parents. His mother carried him in discomfort and gave birth to him in discomfort, and carrying and weaning him takes thirty months, then finally when he reaches full strength and reaches forty years he says: my Lord, grant me that I am grateful for your blessings which You have blessed me with and my parents and that I do good work which You will be pleased with, and make my children good for me, for I turn to You and am of those who have submitted (as Muslims).
46:16  Those are the ones of whom We will accept the best of what they did and whose bad deeds We disregard from amongst the inhabitants of the garden, a true promise that they were given.
46:17  And he who says to his parents: get off, are you promising me that I will be raised when generations before me have gone by? And they implore Allah, (saying) woe to you, believe, for the promise of Allah is true, but he says: these are only stories of old.
46:18  Those are the ones upon whom the word has come true (as it did) amongst the communities of Jinn and mankind who have passed before them, for they were losers.
46:19  For all there are stages on account of what they did, and He will repay them their deeds and they will not be wronged.
46:20  On the day those who reject (the truth) are presented to the fire: you spent all the good you had in your worldly life and enjoyed it, so today you will be rewarded with a humiliating punishment for having been arrogant on earth without right and for having been corrupt.
46:21  And remember the brother of ´Ad when he warned his people in the sand dunes, and there have been warnings before him and after him, that you should not serve anyone but Allah, for I fear for you the punishment of a tremendous day.
46:22  They said: did you come to us to divert us from our gods? Then bring us what you promise us if you are truthful.
46:23  He said: knowledge rests with Allah, and I convey to you what I was sent with, but I see you are ignorant people.
46:24  Then when they saw clouds approaching their valleys they said: these are clouds to bring us rain. But it is what you were in a hurry for: a wind containing a painful punishment.
46:25  It destroys everything by the command of its Lord, so they ended up with only their homes left to be seen; this is how we punish the sinful people.
46:26  And We had established them more than We established you and gave them hearing and eyesight and hearts, but neither their hearing nor their eyesight nor their hearts benefited them the least when they disputed the signs of Allah, and what they used to make fun of overcame them.
46:27  And We destroyed towns around you before and explained the signs so that they might turn back.
46:28  Then why did not those whom they adopted as gods to endear them to Allah help them? But they deserted them, and that is their falsehood and what they used to invent.
46:29  And when We dispatched to you a group of the Jinn to listen to the Qur´an, then when they were in its presence they said: be quiet, then when it was completed, they went back to their people as warners.
46:30  They said: oh our people, we have listened to a book which has been revealed after Musa (Moses), confirming what came before it, which guides to the truth and to a straight path.
46:31  Oh our people, respond to the invitation of Allah and believe in Him, He will forgive you of your sins and protect you from a painful punishment.
46:32  And whoever does not respond to the invitation from Allah, he will not escape on earth and will have no protectors besides Him, those are in clear error.
46:33  Do they not consider that Allah, the One who created the heavens and the earth and did not tire of their creation, is able to revive the dead, for sure He is able to do anything.
46:34  And on the day those who rejected (the truth) are presented to the fire (it is said): is this not true? They will say: Sure, by our Lord. So taste the punishment because you used to reject (the truth).
46:35  So be patient like those firm amongst the messengers were patient, and do not be in a hurry for them; on the day they see what they were promised it is as if they will not have stayed except an hour of the day. This is a declaration, so will anyone but the sinful people be destroyed?
