John Medows Rodwell rendition of Surah The Beneficent, The Mercy Giving, The Merciful(ar-Rahman)
---
55:1 The God of MERCY
55:2 hath taught the Koran,
55:3 Hath created man,
55:4 Hath taught him articulate speech,
55:5 The Sun and the Moon have each their times,
55:6 And the plants and the trees bend in adoration.
55:7 And the Heaven, He hath reared it on high, and hath appointed the balance;
55:8 That in the balance ye should not transgress.
55:9 Weigh therefore with fairness, and scant not the balance.
55:10 And the Earth, He hath prepared it for the living tribes:
55:11 Therein are fruits, and the palms with sheathed clusters,
55:12 And the grain with its husk, and the fragrant plants.
55:13 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny?
55:14 He created man of clay like that of the potter.
55:15 And He created the djinn of pure fire:
55:16 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which then of the bounties, etc.]
55:17 He is the Lord of the East, He is the Lord of the West:
55:18 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:19 He hath let loose the two seas which meet each other:
55:20 Yet between them is a barrier which they overpass not:
55:21 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:22 From each he bringeth up pearls both great and small:
55:23 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:24 And His are the ships towering up at sea like mountains:
55:25 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:26 All on the earth shall pass away,
55:27 But the face of thy Lord shall abide resplendent with majesty and glory:
55:28 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:29 To Him maketh suit all that is in the Heaven and the Earth. Every day doth some new work employ Him:
55:30 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:31 We will find leisure to judge you, O ye men and djinn:
55:32 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:33 O company of djinn and men, if ye can overpass the bounds of the Heavens and the Earth, then overpass them. But by our leave only shall ye overpass them:
55:34 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:35 A bright flash of fire shall be hurled at you both, and molten brass, and ye shall not defend yourselves from it:
55:36 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:37 When the Heaven shall be cleft asunder, and become rose red, like stained leather:
55:38 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:39 On that day shall neither man nor djinn be asked of his sin:
55:40 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:41 By their tokens shall the sinners be known, and they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet:
55:42 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:43 "This is Hell which sinners treated as a lie."
55:44 To and fro shall they pass between it and the boiling water:
55:45 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:46 But for those who dread the majesty of their Lord shall be two gardens:
55:47 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:48 With o'erbranching trees in each:
55:49 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:50 In each two fountains flowing:
55:51 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:52 In each two kinds of every fruit:
55:53 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:54 On couches with linings of brocade shall they recline, and the fruit of the two gardens shall be within easy reach:
55:55 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:56 Therein shall be the damsels with retiring glances, whom nor man nor djinn hath touched before them:
55:57 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:58 Like jacynths and pearls:
55:59 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:60 Shall the reward of good be aught but good?
55:61 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:62 And beside these shall be two other gardens:
55:63 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:64 Of a dark green:
55:65 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:66 With gushing fountains in each:
55:67 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:68 In each, fruits and the palm and the pomegranate:
55:69 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:70 In each, the fair, the beauteous ones:
55:71 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:72 With large dark eyeballs, kept close in their pavilions:
55:73 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:74 Whom man hath never touched, nor any djinn:
55:75 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:76 Their spouses on soft green cushions and on beautiful carpets shall recline:
55:77 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will ye twain deny? [RODWELL: Which, etc.]
55:78 Blessed be the name of thy Lord, full of majesty and glory.
