Wa 'Annahu Ta`ālá Jaddu Rabbinā Mā Attakhadha Şāĥibatan Wa Lā Waladāan

And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord, He has not taken a wife nor a son.



وَإِنْ تَعْجَبْ فَعَجَب ٌ قَوْلُهُمْ أَئِذَا كُنَّا تُرَاباً أَئِنَّا لَفِي خَلْق ٍ جَدِيدٍ أُوْلَائِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِرَبِّهِمْ وَأُوْلَائِكَ الأَغْلاَلُ فِي أَعْنَاقِهِمْ وَأُوْلَائِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

And if you are surprised, then what is more surprising is their saying: "Can it be that when we are dust, we will be created anew!" These are the ones who have rejected their Lord, and they will have shackles around their necks, and they are the dwellers of the Fire, in it they will abide.

أَلَمْ تَرَى أَنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ بِالْحَقِّ إِنْ يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْق ٍ جَدِيد ٍ
'Alam Tará 'Anna Allāha Khalaqa As-Samāwāti Wa Al-'ArĐa Bil-Ĥaqqi 'In Yasha' Yudh/hibkum Wa Ya'ti Bikhalqin Jadīdin

Did you not see that God created the heavens and the earth with the truth? If He wished, He would remove you and bring a new creation.

وَقَالُوا أَئِذَا كُنَّا عِظَاما ً وَرُفَاتاً أَئِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ خَلْقا ً جَدِيدا ً
Wa Qālū 'A'idhā Kunnā `Ižāmāan Wa Rufātāan 'A'innā Lamab`ūthūna Khalqāan Jadīdāan

And they said: "When we are bones and fragments, will we then be resurrected to a new creation?"

ذَلِكَ جَزَاؤُهُمْ بِأَنَّهُمْ كَفَرُوا بِآيَاتِنَا وَقَالُوا أَئِذَا كُنَّا عِظَاما ً وَرُفَاتاً أَئِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ خَلْقا ً جَدِيدا ً
Dhālika Jazā'uuhum Bi'annahum Kafarū Bi'āyātinā Wa Qālū 'A'idhā Kunnā `Ižāmāan Wa Rufātāan 'A'innā Lamab`ūthūna Khalqāan Jadīdāan

Such is their recompense that they rejected Our revelations, and they said: "If we are bones and fragments, will we be sent into a new creation?"

وَقَالُوا أَئِذَا ضَلَلْنَا فِي الأَرْضِ أَئِنَّا لَفِي خَلْق ٍ جَدِيد ٍ بَلْ هُمْ بِلِقَاءِ رَبِّهِمْ كَافِرُونَ
Wa Qālū 'A'idhā Đalalnā Fī Al-'ArĐi 'A'innā Lafī Khalqin Jadīdin Bal Hum Biliqā'i Rabbihim Kāfirūna

And they said: When we are buried in the ground, will we be created anew? Indeed, they reject the meeting of their Lord.

وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا هَلْ نَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى رَجُل ٍ يُنَبِّئُكُمْ إِذَا مُزِّقْتُمْ كُلَّ مُمَزَّق ٍ إِنَّكُمْ لَفِي خَلْق ٍ جَدِيد ٍ

إِنْ يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْق ٍ جَدِيد ٍ
'In Yasha' Yudh/hibkum Wa Ya'ti Bikhalqin Jadīdin

If He wishes, He could do away with you and He would bring a new creation.

أَفَعَيِينَا بِالْخَلْقِ الأَوَّلِ بَلْ هُمْ فِي لَبْس ٍ مِنْ خَلْق ٍ جَدِيد ٍ
'Afa`ayīnā Bil-Khalqi Al-'Awwali Bal Hum Fī Labsin Min Khalqin Jadīdin

Did We have any difficulty in making the first creation? No, they are in confusion about the next creation.


n.f. (pl. of juddah)

أَلَمْ تَرَى أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاء ً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِه ِِ ثَمَرَات ٍ مُخْتَلِفاً أَلْوَانُهَا وَمِنَ الْجِبَالِ جُدَد ٌ بِيض ٌ وَحُمْر ٌ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهَا وَغَرَابِيبُ سُود ٌ
'Alam Tará 'Anna Allāha 'Anzala Mina As-Samā'i Mā'an Fa'akhrajnā Bihi Thamarātin Mukhtalifāan 'Alwānuhā Wa Mina Al-Jibāli Judadun BīĐun Wa Ĥumrun Mukhtalifun 'Alwānuhā Wa Gharābību Sūdun

Do you not see that God sends down water from the sky, thus We produce with it fruits of various colors? And of the mountains are peaks that are white, red, or some other color and intense black.
