Al-Hijr, Surah The Rocky Tract (Qur'an: Surat-15-Al-Hijr)
Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem
Alif-Lâm-Râ. These are Verses of the Book and a clear Qur’ân.
Most likely; those who disbelieve will wish that ‘they had been Muslims (submitters to Allah)’.
Leave them! They may eat, enjoy themselves and hope entices them (keeps them busy). But soon they will come to know!
And never did We destroy a country but there was a known Book for it.
No nation can advance its end nor delay it.
And they said: “O you to whom the Zikir (Remembrance) has been sent down! You are most surely insane”.
Should you not bring to us the angels if you are of the truthful ones?
We do not send the angels down except with the truth. Then they would not be given time either.
Surely, We sent down the Zikir (the Qur’ân) and We are surely its Guardian (as well).
And certainly We sent (Messengers) before you among the previous communities.
There never came a Messenger to them except they mocked at them.
Thus do We make it (mocking) to enter into the hearts of the guilty.
Even though the Sunna (Practice) of the former people has already passed, they do not believe in him (Messenger).
And even if We open to them a gateway from the heaven so that they ascend into it.
They would certainly say: “Only our eyes have been covered over (dazzled so we cannot see the reality), rather, we are an enchanted people”.
And We have placed within the heaven great stars and have beautified it for the observers.
And We have guarded it from every stoned (outcast) Satan.
Yet whoever listened by stealth (tried to steal the information of the Unseen), then a visible flaming fire pursued him.
And the earth; We have spread it out, and made in it big mountains and caused to grow in it of every well-proportioned vegetation.
And We have made in it means of subsistence for you and for those for whom you are not the suppliers.
And there is not a thing but with Us are the treasures of it. We do send it down but in a known destiny (in a known foreordained measure).
And We sent the winds loaded (with water). So We sent down water from the sky, and watered you with it. And it is not you who are the creators of its treasures (the seas, the rivers, the underground and ground spring waters, the lakes).
And certainly, We! Only We give life. And We cause death. And We are the Inheritors.
And certainly We know those who have gone before you. And We certainly know those who shall come after you as well.
And surely your Lord, He gathers them together (in His presence). Surely, He is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
And certainly We created human from (Hamein Mesnûn Salsâlin) dried clay of altered mud (from clay that has undergone an organic transformation and has been given a standard shape of a human being).
And the jinn; We created earlier from intensely hot fire (Semûm).
And your Lord had said to the angels: “Surely I am going to create from (Hamein Mesnûn Salsâlin) dried clay of altered mud (from clay that has undergone an organic transformation and has been given a standard shape of a human being) a mortal (human being).”
So when I have made him complete and breathed into him of My Spirit, immediately fall down prostrating yourselves before him!
So the angels prostrated themselves altogether.
Except Iblîs (Satan). (He) refused to be with the ones who prostrated.
Allah said: “O Iblîs (Satan)! What is your reason for not being with the ones who prostrated?”
(Iblîs) said: “I am not the one to prostrate myself to a human being (a mortal), whom You created from (Hamein Mesnûn Salsâlin) dried clay of altered mud (from clay that has undergone an organic transformation and has been given a standard shape of a human being).”
(Allah) said: “Get out of there right away! Surely you are dismissed for this reason.”
And surely on you is the Curse until the Day of Religion (the Day of Recompense).
(Iblîs) said: “My Lord! Then respite me till a Day when they will be resurrected.”
(Allah) said: “Surely you are of the ones who is given time.”
Until the Day of the time well-known.
(Satan) said: “My Lord! Because you exacerbated me, I will certainly make (exacerbation) fair-seeming to them on earth and I will certainly exacerbate them.”
Except Your servants from among them who are utterly pure.
Allah Said: “This is the Path directed towards Me (that leads to Me).”
Certainly, you shall have no authority over My servants, except those who depend on you of those whom you exacerbated.
And surely Hell is the promised place of them all.
It (Hell) has seven gates. For every gate there shall be a separate party of them.
Surely the owners of piety (Muttaqûn) will be in the midst of Gardens and water-springs.
Enter there (Heaven) with greetings, being secure.
And We rooted out whatever of grudge is in their bosoms. They are on thrones, face to face being brothers.
No fatigue shall touch them there. And they shall not be ever expelled from it.
Inform My servants! Truly, I am the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful (the One who sends down the Light of Mercy).
And that My torment is indeed a painful torment.
And inform them of the guests of Abraham.
When they entered upon him, they said: “Peace (be upon you)”. (Abraham) said: “Surely We feel afraid of you.”
(The guests) said: “(You) do not be afraid! Surely we give you the glad tidings of a son endowed with knowledge.”
He said: “Do you give me good news when old age has come upon me? What then do you give me good news of?”
They said: “We gave you glad tidings with truth. Therefore do not be of the despairing.”
He said: “And who despairs of the Mercy of his Lord except those who are in Misguidance?”
He said: “What is the matter then of which you will speak, O Messengers?”
They said: “Surely We have been sent to a guilty people.”
Except the family of Lot; We will most surely deliver them all.
Except his wife. Because We have decreed that she shall be of those who remain behind (destroyed).
So when the sent messengers came to the family of Lot.
(Lot) said: “Surely you are an unknown (foreign) people.”
They said: “Nay, we have come to you with what they have been doubtful.”
And we have brought to you the truth, and we are most surely truthful.
Right away go forth with your family in a part of the night! Follow their rear, and let not anyone of you turn round to look back. And go on to where you are commanded.
And We made known this decree to him, that the root of them would be cut off in the early morning (they would be destroyed).
And the inhabitants of the city came giving good news to each other.
(Lot) said: “Surely these are my guests; therefore do not disgrace me.”
Have fear and piety towards Allah and do not degrade me.
They said: “Did we not forbid you from interfering (other) people’s business?”
(Lot) said: “These are my daughters, if you will do what you are thinking.”
Assuredly, by your life! They were blindly wandering on in their intoxication.
So a Sayha (terrible sound wave) overtook them (those who were there at sunrise).
Thus did We turn it (the city) upside down, and rained down upon them (fatal) stones of baked clay.
Surely in this are Signs for those who examine to learn.
And surely it still remains on a way.
Most surely there are Signs in this for the believers (those whose souls’ hearts is written Faith in them).
And the Dwellers of the Thicket (Al-Ayka) also were most surely wrong-doers.
So, We took vengeance on them too and they are both, indeed, a clear guide (a lesson to be learnt for the following generations).
And the Dwellers of Hijr certainly belied the sent Messengers.
And We gave them Our Verses (miracles, proofs), but they turned aside from them.
And they used to carve out safe houses in the mountains.
So the Sayha (awful cry) overtook those who made to the morning.
And what they earned did not avail them.
We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them except with the truth. And the Hour (Doomsday) will most surely come. So turn away from them with graciousness.
Surely your Lord is the Creator of all things and the All-Knowing.
And certainly We have given you seven from the second (sevenfold, as sevenfold) and the Grand Qur’ân.
Do not extend your eyes what We have given some of them as provision in pairs (abundantly), nor grieve over them. And lower your wings for (those whose souls’ hearts is written Faith in them) the believers (guard them, be humble).
And say: “Surely I am a plain Warner (who explains)”.
Like as We have sent down on the dividers (in parts).
They made the Qur’ân into parts.
So, by your Lord, We shall surely question them altogether.
As to what they used to do.
So proclaim openly what you are commanded, and turn away from those who associate.
Surely We will suffice you against the mockers.
Those who set up other gods with Allah shall soon know.
Surely We know that your breast is straitened at what they say.
Therefore glorify your Lord with His praise, and be of those who prostrate themselves.
And be a servant to Allah until what is certain (Hakk'ul yakîn, the last certainty, the Certainty of Allah when you become a slave to Him) comes to you.
