55:1 The Gracious One
55:2 HE has given the knowledge of the Qur'aan,
55:3 HE has created mankind.
55:4 He has taught mankind the art and skill of communicating with one another.
55:5 [HE has created] the sun and the moon on accurately measured dimentions, properties and positions.
55:6 And the star and the tree prostrate!
55:7 And the sky He has raised high and set up the balance.
55:8 So that you breach not that balance!
55:9 And weigh things correctly, and cut not the measure short!
55:10 And He has made the earth suitable for living beings,
55:11 Therein is fruit, and the palm tree with its sheathed clusters of dates
55:12 And the grain in its husk, and the plants giving out fragrance.
55:13 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:14 He has created mankind of clay, as [mankind make] pottery [out of it].
55:15 And He has created the invisible beings [jinns] out of radiation from fire.
55:16 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:17 Lord of the two Easts, and Lord of the two Wests
55:18 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:19 He has made the two streams of water flow side by side
55:20 Between them is a barrier which they do not transgress.
55:21 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:22 Out of these two come forth pearls, and precious corals.
55:23 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:24 And it is He Who has made it possible for the ships to remain afloat like some signboards raised in the sea.
55:25 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:26 Everything [every ship] thereon [on the sea] is passing
55:27 And, what is lasting is the Presence of your Lord, Majestic and Magnanimous!
55:28 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:29 Every single thing in the heavens and on earth takes its orders from Him. Every day it is He Who manifests Himself gloriously [and there is none to overcome His Power!]
55:30 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:31 We shall soon attend to you, O you sin-laden two [mankind and jinn]!
55:32 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:33 O assembly of the jinn and mankind! If you think you can pass beyond the frontiers of the heavens and the earth, then pass! You cannot pass beyond, save by a sanction [from Allah]!.
55:34 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:35 A trail of fire and smoke will be sent upon you, and you both will be left with no help!
55:36 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:37 Then as the sky disintegrates it would appear a rose-coloured stretch of leather.
55:38 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:39 And on that Day none — neither mankind nor jinn — will be questioned about his/her sins.
55:40 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:41 All the sinners shall be recognised by distinguishing marks on them, and seized by their forelocks and their feet!
55:42 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:43 This is the Hell that the sinners had dismissed as being a lie:
55:44 They wander to and fro between it [burning hot flame] and burning-hot water!
55:45 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:46 And for those who fear their Lord's [Invincible] Position, two Gardens [of Paradise, each for mankind and jinn]
55:47 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:48 [The two Gardens, each] having sections of various kinds.
55:49 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:50 In those two [gardens] flow two springs.
55:51 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:52 In those two [gardens] are pairs of every fruit.
55:53 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:54 [The blessed inhabitants of the gardens] recline upon carpets lined with rich brocade; and the fruit of both those gardens is within easy reach.
55:55 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:56 In those [gardens] are mates of modest gaze, whom neither man nor any jinn had touched ever before.
55:57 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?

55:59 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:60 Could the reward for good deeds be anything but good?
55:61 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?

55:63 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny? —
55:64 Both [gardens] deep green in colour!.
55:65 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:66 In those two [gardens], two gushing springs!
55:67 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:68 In both [gardens], fruits, dates and pomegranates!
55:69 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:70 In these [gardens] are things excellent and beautiful.
55:71 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:72 [In those gardens is companionship of] modest Houris in pavilions -
55:73 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:74 [Houris] whom neither man nor any jinn had ever touched before
55:75 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:76 [Dwellers of Paradise] recline upon green meadows and beautiful carpets
55:77 So, which of your Lordճ Means of Power will you deny?
55:78 Blessed is the Name of your Lord, Majestic and Glorified!
