Muhammad Asad rendition of Surah The Beneficent, The Mercy Giving, The Merciful(ar-Rahman)
---
55:1 THE MOST GRACIOUS
55:2 has imparted this Qur’an [unto man].
55:3 He has created man:
55:4 He has imparted unto him articulate thought and speech.
55:5 [At His behest] the sun and the moon run their appointed courses;
55:6 [before Him] prostrate themselves the stars and the trees.
55:7 And the skies has He raised high, and has devised [for all things] a measure,
55:8 so that you [too, O men,] might never transgress the measure [of what is right]:
55:9 weigh, therefore, [your deeds] with equity, and cut not the measure short!
55:10 And the earth has He spread out for all living beings,
55:11 with fruit thereon, and palm trees with sheathed clusters [of dates],
55:12 and grain growing tall on its stalks, and sweet-smelling plants.
55:13 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:14 He has created man out of sounding clay, like pottery,
55:15 whereas the invisible beings He has created out of a confusing flame of fire.
55:16 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:17 [He is] the Sustainer of the two farthest points of sunrise, and the Sustainer of the two farthest points of sunset.
55:18 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:19 He has given freedom to the two great bodies of water, so that they might meet:
55:20 [yet] between them is a barrier which they may not transgress.
55:21 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:22 Out of these two [bodies of water] come forth pearls, both great and small.
55:23 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:24 And His are the lofty ships that sail like [floating] mountains through the seas.
55:25 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:26 All that lives on earth or in the heavens is bound to pass away:
55:27 but forever will abide thy Sustainer’s Self, full of majesty and glory.
55:28 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:29 On Him depends all creatures in the heavens and on earth; [and] every day He manifests Himself in yet another [wondrous] way.
55:30 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:31 [ONE DAY] We shall take you to task, O you sin-laden two!
55:32 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:33 O you who live in close communion with [evil] invisible beings and humans! If you [think that you] can pass beyond the regions of the heavens and the earth, pass beyond them! [But] you cannot pass beyond them, save by a sanction [from God]!
55:34 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:35 A flash of fire will be let loose upon you, and smoke, and you will be left without succour!
55:36 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:37 And when the sky is rent asunder and becomes red like [burning] oil
55:38 which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:39 For on that Day neither man nor invisible being will be asked about his sins.
55:40 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:41 All who were lost in sin shall by their marks be known, and shall by their forelocks and their feet be seized!
55:42 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:43 This will be the hell which those who are lost in sin [now] call a lie:
55:44 between it and [their own] burning-hot despair will they wander to and fro!
55:45 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:46 BUT FOR THOSE who of their Sustainer’s Presence stand in fear, two gardens [of paradise are readied] -
55:47 which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow? –
55:48 [two gardens] of many wondrous hues.
55:49 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:50 In [each of] these two [gardens] two springs will flow.
55:51 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:52 In [each of] these two will two kinds of every fruit be [found].
55:53 Which, then, of your Sustainer s powers can you disavow?
55:54 [In such a paradise the blest will dwell,] reclining upon carpets lined with rich brocade; and the fruit of both these gardens will be within easy reach.
55:55 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:56 In these [gardens] will be mates of modest gaze, whom neither man nor invisible being will have touched ere then.
55:57 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:58 [When you are promised splendours] as though [of] rubies and [of] pearls –
55:59 which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:60 Could the reward of good be aught but good?
55:61 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:62 And besides those two will be yet two [other] gardens -
55:63 which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow? –
55:64 two [gardens] of the deepest green.
55:65 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:66 In [each of] these two [gardens] will two springs gush forth.
55:67 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:68 In both of them will be [all kinds of] fruit, and date-palms and pomegranates.
55:69 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:70 In these [gardens] will be [all] things most excellent and beautiful.
55:71 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:72 [There the blest will live with their] companions pure and modest, in pavilions [splendid] -
55:73 which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow? –
55:74 [companions] whom neither man nor invisible being will have touched ere then.
55:75 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:76 [In such a paradise will they dwell,] reclining upon meadows green and carpets rich in beauty.
55:77 Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?
55:78 HALLOWED be thy Sustainer’s name, full of majesty and glory!
