57:1  Whatever is in the heavens and the earth has glorified Allah. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise
57:2  To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He gives life, and He brings death; and He is All-Capable over every thing
57:3  He is the Alpha (The First One) and the Omega (The Last One), and The Manifest, and The Hidden. And He is All-Aware with every thing
57:4  He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six aeons, then He set (Himself) over the throne. He knows what enters the earth and what comes out of it; and what descends from towards the sky, and what ascends towards it. And He is alongwith you wheresoever you may be. And Allah is All-Seer of what you do
57:5  For Him is the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And the affairs are made to return to Allah
57:6  He enters the night into the day; and He enters the day into the night. And He is All-Aware about the state of (the hearts in) the chests
57:7  Develop Faith in Allah and His Messenger, and spend out of that wherein He has made you trustees. So those who have accepted Faith from amongst you and have spent (in his way): for them is a great reward
57:8  And what (is the matter) with you: you do not believe in Allah while the Messenger invites you so that you may develop Belief in your Nourisher-Sustainer? And He has indeed taken your covenant, if you happened to be Believers
57:9  He it is Who makes to descend down on (the heart of) His Abd, Ayaatin Bayyinatin (‘Manifestly clear Verses’) so that He may bring you out from the darknesses (of ignorance) unto Light (of Divine Way of life). And verily, Allah unto you is indeed Oft-Returning, continuously Merciful
57:10  And what is (the matter) with you that you do not spend in the Way of Allah? And to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. Does not become equal amongst you who spent before (witnessing) the victory and also took part in Qital. Such people are higher in rank in comparison to those who spent afterwards and took part in Qital. And Allah has promised the best to all. And Allah is Well-Acquainted of what you do
57:11  Who (is) that one who will lend to Allah Qarzan Hasanan so He will increase it for him; and for him is a generous reward (in this world as well as in the Hereafter)
57:12  The Day you mark the Believing males and the Believing females (that) their Light runs in between their two hands (i.e.,before them), and by their right (sides). Glad tidings for you this Day — Gardens, flow underneath them rivers, abiders therein. That, that is the Supreme achievement
57:13  The Day The hypocrite males and hypocrite females will say unto those who had accepted Faith, "Pay us attention, we will share some thing from your Light." Is is said (unto them): "Go back to your rear, then seek light." So a barries was made in between those (two groups); unto it, is a gate — its interior, therein is Mercy; and its exterior, directly in front of it is the torment
57:14  (The hypocrites will again) call them: “Were we not alongwith you?” (The Believers) said: “Yes! But you led yourselves into temptation, and you hesitated (from accepting Al-Kitab) and you doubted, and (your) vain desires deceived you until the Command of Allah got issued. And the Chief deceiver (i.e., Iblis) deceived you in respect of Allah
57:15  So this Day will not be accepted from you a ransom, and nor from those who have disbelieved. Your abode is the Hell, it is your maula (companion), and an evil place for Final stay.
57:16  Has not the time come for those who have Believed that their hearts may soften and show sincerity regarding Zikrullah (‘Message of Allah’), and what has descended as Al-Haqq (‘The Truth’)? And they must not become like those who were given Al-Kitab before; and a long period passed over them (when they last faced a Messenger) so their hearts became hardened. And a vast majority amongst them (became) Fasiqun
57:17  Do realise that Allah revives the earth after her death. Indeed We have made Al-Ayaat evidently clear for you, perchance you may use (your) intellect
57:18  Verily, those males who give donations, and females who give donations; and they loaned to Allah a loan not compulsory to be paid back — it shall be increased for them; and for them is a generous reward
57:19  And those who have developed Faith in Allah and His Messengers: those people, they very ones are As-Siddiqun (The people who testified) and Ash-Shuhadah (The people who became Witnesses) in the Sight of their Nourisher-Sustainer. For them is their reward and their Light. And those who disbelieved and denied Ayaatina, those people (would be the) companions of the blazing Fire
57:20  Do realise that what is Al-Hayat-ud-Dunya (the life devoted to this immediate world alone) becomes play and amusement, and pomp, and mutual boasting amongst you, and multiplication and enrichment in wealth and offspring. (This life is) like (the) rain: its vegetation brought the sowing-tillers to wonder; afterwards it dries up, so you see it turned yellowish, then it becomes straw. While in the Hereafter is severe torment, as well as Forgiveness from Allah, and (His) Agreement (and Assent). And what is the life devoted to this immediate world (alone) except a deceitful enjoyment
57:21  Race one with another towards Forgiveness proceeding from your Nourisher-Sustainer, and towards Paradise — the dimension thereof is as the dimensions of the heaven and the earth (together). It has been prepared for those who have Believed in Allah and His Messengers. This is the Bounty of Allah. He bestows it whom He thinks proper. And Allah is the Possessor of the Supreme Bounty
57:22  Has not reached out of a calamity inside the earth and nor inside your ownselves, but it (has come) in record before We bring it into action. Surely this is very easy for Allah (to implement)
57:23  (This is) in order that you may not be sad over what left or bypassed you, and do not indulge in merry-mahead of state about that which He bestowed on you. And Allah does not like any one who is a proud boaster
57:24  Those who behave as a niggard and enjoin upon humans to be niggardly; and whoever turns back (from spending whole heartedly in the Cause of Allah), then surely Allah: He is the Self-Sufficient, Worthy of all Praise
57:25  Surely, indeed We sent Our Messengers with Al-Bayyinat [‘The Manifestly Clear Items’. (See Verses 43/63, 61/6)]; and sent down alongwith them Al-Kitab and Al-Mizan (‘The Balance’) so that humans may establish (themselves) with justice. And We sent down iron; therein (is material for) violent warfare and benefits for mankind, and so that Allah may distinguish and comes to know who helps Him and His Messengers unseen. Verily, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Powerful
57:26  And surely, indeed We sent Nuh and Ibrahim and We continued among the offspring of these two Prophethood and Al-Kitab. So amongst them is that who is a guided one and the vast majority amongst them (consists) of Fasiqun
57:27  Then We brought afterwards Our Messengers on their footsteps and afterwards We brought Iesa Ibn-e-Maryam and We delivered him Al-Injeel [This is another attribute for Al-Kitab. See Verse No. 19/30 where Iesa himself terms it as Al-Kitab. Other attributes in relation to Prophet Iesa are available in 2/87, 253 3/50 5/46, 110 43/63 and they are Al-Bayyinat, Taurat, Hudah, Mauizatun-lil-Muttaqin, Al-Hikmah]. And We developed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. And as far as Rahbaniyah [Monasticism (is concerned)], they (themselves) initiated it; We did not prescribe it for them — except the seehead of state of the Pleasures of Allah; then they observed it not as its observance became due. Then We paid back those amongst them who Believed their reward. And the vast majority of them are Fasiqun
57:28  O you people who have Believed! Pay obedience to Allah and Believe in His Messenger. He will bestow you double portion of His Mercy, and He will establish for you a Light— you shall walk (in the Permanent Path) thereby. And He will provide Forgiveness for you. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, continuously Merciful
57:29  So that Ahl-ul-Kitab [(mere) possessors of Al-Kitab] may not think that they (the Muslims who have developed Belief,) have no capability over any thing out of the Bounty of Allah. And that the Bounty is in the hand of Allah — He will bestow it on whom He will think proper. And Allah is the Possessor of the Great Bounty
