Al-Hajj, Surah The Pilgrimage (Qur'an: Surat-22-Al-Hajj)
Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem
O mankind! Have piety (Takwa) towards your Lord! Surely the quake (severe shaking) of the Hour (Doomsday) is a mighty thing.
On the Day when you shall see it (the Doomsday) every suckling woman shall quit (cannot pay attention to her baby) in confusion what she suckled. Every pregnant one shall lay down (drop) her burden (baby), and you shall see humans intoxicated although they are not. However, the Torment of Allah is severe.
And of the mankind there is such who argues about Allah without knowledge and follows (depends on) every rebellious satan.
It is written down upon him (Satan) that whoever turns to him, then he shall cause him to fall into Misguidance and take him to the torment of Hell.
O mankind! If you are in doubt about the Raising up (the Resurrection), then surely We created you (at first) from dust (organic and inorganic substances) then from a Nutfah (a drop, small seed), then from an “Alaqah” (an embryo hung on to the wall of the womb at one point) then from a lump of (chewed) flesh, shaped and unshaped, that We may make clear to you. And We cause (you) to stay in the wombs till an appointed term that We wish, then take you out as a baby to reach your puberty. And of you is he who is caused to die, and of you is he who is brought back to old age so that after having knowledge he does not know anything. And you see the earth dry, but when We send down on it the water, it moves and it rises and grows vegetables of every charming pair.
Verily Allah, He is the Truth and verily He gives life to the dead and verily He has Power over all things.
And the Hour which there is no doubt about it (to take place) will be certainly coming. And Allah shall rise up (bring back to life) those who are in the graves.
And among men there is he who argues about Allah without knowledge and without having a person of Hidayet and without a Book of glorious light (that enlightens).
He bends (alters) it (the foundations of Allah’s Religion) in order to cause (others) to deviate from the Way of Allah. For him is disgrace in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection We will make him taste the burning torment.
This is because of what your two hands have sent forth (the injustice you caused), and verily Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants (of Allah).
And among mankind is such who worships Allah on the verge (reluctantly). If good befalls him, he is satisfied with it, but if a mischief afflicts him he turns back on his face. (They are) in loss in this world as well as in the Hereafter. He is in Loss in this world and in the Hereafter.
They call besides Allah which neither harm nor profit them. This is a manifest Misguidance.
Truly they call upon him whose harm is nearer (more) than his profit. How evil of a companion (helper) and how evil of a friend (what they worship).
Surely Allah will cause those who believe (those who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (the soul’s cleansing) to enter Heaven beneath which the rivers flow. Surely Allah does what He wills.
Whoever thinks that Allah will never assist him in this world and the Hereafter, let him stretch out a reason to the sky, then let him cut it (that reason, connection) off, then let him see if his plot will remove that (calamity that has befallen him) at which he is enraged.
And thus have We sent it down as clear Verses and surely Allah causes whom He wills to reach Hidayet (Himself).
Surely Allah will separate (as people of heaven and hell) between those who believe (those who wish to reach Allah before death) and those who are Jews, and the Christians and the Magians (the worshippers of the fire) and those who associate others with Allah (idol worshippers), on the Day of Resurrection. Surely Allah is a Witness over all things.
Do you not see that whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth; and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains and the trees and the (moving) animals and many of the mankind prostrate themselves to Allah. Upon many (humans) the punishment has been justified and whomever Allah humiliates, for him there is no bestower of honor. Surely Allah makes what He pleases.
These two (the believers and the disbelievers) are adversaries who dispute about their Lord. As to those who disbelieve, for them are cut out garments of fire. Boiling water shall be poured down over their heads.
With it shall be melted what is in their bellies (inner organs) and skins (flesh) as well.
And for them are whips of iron.
Whenever they desire to go forth from it, from anguish, they are turned back into it, and (it is said to them): “Taste the torment of burning”.
Surely Allah makes those who believe (who are âmenû, who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (the soul’s cleansing) enter Heavens, beneath which the rivers flow. They shall be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls. Their garments therein are of silk.
And they have been guided to the best of the speech (to wish to reach Allah) and they have been guided (delivered) to Sıratı Hamîd (to the Way of the first of the Seven Stages of Islam).
Surely those who disbelieve, and hinder from the Way of Allah and from the Sacred Mosque which We have made equally for all men, the dwellers therein and the visitors from the outside; and whoever desires therein to cause (others) to deviate (from the Way of the Truth) with wrongdoing, We will make them taste of a painful torment.
And when We made manifest (showed) to Abraham the site (place) of the (sacred) House (told him that): “Do not associate with Me anything; and keep My House clean for those who circumambulate (it) and those who stand up and those who bow and prostrate themselves.
And proclaim among the people the Pilgrimage so that they come to you on foot and on camels, from every distant mountain path.
Let them witness the things that are of benefit to them and mention the name of Allah on known days over what He has provided for them of (sacrificial) animals. Then eat of them and feed the poor who are in need.
Then let them remove their dirt (let them put on the pilgrim’s garb) and let them fulfill their vows (offerings) and let them circumambulate the Ancient House (the Ka’bah).
Just like that, whoever respects the sacred ordinances (prohibitions) of Allah; it is better for him with his Lord. And the animals are made lawful for you, except that which is recited (read and explained) to you (that are prohibited). Now avoid the uncleanness of the idols and false statements.
The Hanifs (the servants that are submitted to one God) are the ones who do not associate them (idols) with Him and whoever associates (others) with Allah, it is as if he had fallen from the sky, then the birds had snatched him away or the wind had blown him to a far off place.
And whoever observes respectfully the Marks (commands) of Allah, this surely because of the piety of their hearts.
In them are benefits (in their milk, wool) for a named term (till the time of their slaughtering), then their place is Ka’ba (the Ancient House).
And for every nation We appointed (the same) rituals that they may mention the name of Allah over what He has provided for them of (sacrificial) animals (that they should slaughter them in the Name of Allah). So your God is One God, therefore to Him should you submit! And give good news to the Muhbitûn (those whose hearts are put Ihbat-the divine computerized system enabling them to understand what the Murshid explains to them).
Those are the ones whose hearts tremble (those whose hearts and bodies are shaken by a “current” coming from Allah) when they mention (do Dhikir of) Allah. They are the patient ones over what afflicts them and the ones who keep up the prayer. And they spend out of what We have provided them.
And We have made the “Budn” (cow, oxen, and camel like animals) of the orders (ordinances) of Allah for you. For you therein (sacrificing them) is much good. So mention the Name of Allah (as you are slaughtering them) over them (sacrificial) (glorify Allah) as they are (still) standing. Then when they fall down on their sides (when they are slaughtered), eat of them and feed those who ask and who do not ask. Thus have We made them subservient to you, that you may be thankful.
It is neither their flesh nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety (Takwa, submitting to Allah) that reaches Him from you. Thus has He made them subservient to you, that you may glorify Allah because He has caused you to attain Hidayet. And give glad tidings to the Al-Muhsinûn (those who have submitted their physical bodies to Allah).
Surely Allah drives away (troubles) from those who are âmenû (who wish to reach Allah before death). Surely Allah does not love any one who is treacherous and ungrateful.
Permission is given to those who are fighting (to fight), because they have been wronged; and most surely Allah is capable to help them.
They have been expelled from their homes unjustly only because they said: “Our Lord is Allah”. And if there had not been Allah’s repelling some people by others, monasteries (of priests), churches (of Christians), synagogues (of Jews) and Masjids (of Muslims) in which Allah’s Name is often mentioned (remembered) would surely have been ruined and demolished. Allah surely helps those who help Him. Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All–Mighty.
If We have given them opportunities in the earth, they would have kept up the Prayer and given alms (Az-Zakat) and enjoined Al-Ma’ruf (all that Islam orders) and forbid Al- Munkar (all that Islam forbids). And Allah’s is the end of all the affairs (Judgment belongs to Allah).
And if they belie you, then (know that) already before you the people of Noah and Âd and Thamûd belied (their Prophets) as well.
And the people of Abraham and the people of Lot (belied their Prophets) too.
And the dwellers of Midian (belied) too; and Moses too was belied. But I gave respite to the disbelievers, then I seized them. So how was My punishment?
So just like the (people of the) countries who were wrongdoers did We destroy that as well. So it is fallen into ruin and its wells and a lofty palace is abandoned!
Have they not traveled in the earth so that they should have hearts with which to comprehend, or ears with which to hear? Surely it is not the physical eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the bosoms.
And they ask you to hasten on the torment! And Allah never turns away from His promise, and surely a day with your Lord is like a thousand years of what you number.
And I gave respite to it just like many countries that were wrong-doing (people), then I overtook (seized) it, and to Me is the return.
Say: “O mankind! I am only a plain Warner to you”.
For those who believe (those who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (the soul’s cleansing), there is Forgiveness (the conversion of sins into merits) and a generous sustenance.
And those who strive against Our signs to fail them, they shall be the inmates of the Flaming Fire (Ashabı Cehîm).
And We did not send before you any Messenger and Prophet, but when he framed a desire (wish), Satan cast into his wish (falsehood), but Allah abrogates (abolishes) that which Satan throws in, then does Allah make firm His Verses and Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise (the Owner of Wisdom and Judgment).
So that He may make what Satan casts a trial (mischief) for those in whose hearts is a disease and those whose hearts are hardened (and darkened). And surely the wrong-doers are in a remote opposition (far away from Sıratı Mustakîm).
And that those who have been given the knowledge may know that it (what the Murshid/Saint guide, the Saint Messenger, the Prophet Messenger has said) is the truth from your Lord, so that they may believe in Him, that their hearts may comprehend Him (that their hearts be satisfied as the Ekinnet/Covering is replaced with Ihbat in their hearts). And most surely Allah is the One who guides those who believe (are âmenû, who wish to reach Allah) to Sıratı Mustakîm (the Path directed to Allah).
And those who disbelieve shall not cease to be in doubt about it until the Hour comes suddenly upon them, or there comes to them the torment of the day whose goal cannot be attained (of the day of death).
The Sovereignty (Mulk) on the Day of Permission belongs to Allah. He will judge between them. Then those who believe (who wish to reach Allah) and do improving deeds (do the soul’s cleansing, that will make one reach the Post of Salâh) will be in the Naim Heavens.
And those who disbelieve and belie Our Verses, for them will be a humiliating torment.
And those who emigrated in the Way of Allah and are killed or die, Allah will most certainly grant them a goodly sustenance, and most surely Allah is the Best in giving sustenance.
(Allah) will certainly cause them to enter a place of entrance which they shall be well-pleased with; and most surely Allah is indeed All-Knowing, most Gentle.
Just like this, and he who retaliates with the like of that with which he has been afflicted and then he has been oppressed, Allah most certainly helps him. Verily Allah indeed is Oft- Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving (the One that converts sins into merits).
Just like that, because Allah makes the night pass into the day and makes the day pass into the night. And verily Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.
Just like that because Allah-He is the “Truth”. And what you call upon besides Him, they are the falsehood. Indeed Allah, He is the Most High, the Most Great.
Did you not see that Allah sends down water from the sky so that the earth becomes green? Surely Allah is Generous, Cognizant.
His is whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. And most surely Allah is the Self-Sufficient (Rich, Free of all needs), the Praised.
Did you not see that Allah has subjected to you whatsoever is in the earth? And the ships sail through the sea by His Command. And He holds back the sky from falling on the earth except with His Permission. Most surely Allah is, Full of Kindness, Most Merciful for mankind.
And He It is Who gives you life, and He will cause you to die, then bring you to life (again). Most surely human is indeed ungrateful.
For every nation we appointed a Law (single Sharia). They (should) follow (that Sharia). Therefore they should not dispute with you about My command. You invite to your Lord. Most surely you are indeed directed (towards Allah) upon Hidayet.
And if they contend with you, say: “Allah best knows what you do”.
Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection about that in which you used to differ.
Do you not know that Allah knows what is in the heavens and the earth? Surely these are in the Book. Surely these are easy to Allah.
And they serve besides Allah that for which He has not sent any authority (proof), and they have no knowledge of it (of that which they worship). And for the wrong-doers there is no helper.
And when Our explained Verses are recited to them, you recognize the denial on the faces of those who deny. They almost spring upon those who recite to them Our Verses. Say: “Shall I inform you of what is worse than this”? The Fire that Allah has promised to those who disbelieve, and how evil is the destination.
O mankind! A parable is set forth for you. Therefore listen to it. Surely those whom you worship besides Allah cannot even create a fly, even if they should all gather for it (to create). And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they could not take it back from it (the fly). So weak are the seeker and the sought.
They could not rightfully estimate Allah’s Power. Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.
Allah chooses Messengers from the angels and men. Surely Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.
He knows what is before them and what is behind them (the guardian angels) and to Allah are all orders returned.
O you who believe (who are âmenû, who which to reach Allah before death)! Bow down and prostrate yourselves. And be servants to Allah and do good that you may have Salvation.
And strive hard in Allah with its due. He has chosen you. Has not laid upon you any hardship in the Religion which is the religion of your father Abraham. He named you Muslims (submitters to Allah) before and in this (the Qur’ân), that the Messenger may be a witness to you, and you may be bearers of witnesses to people. Therefore keep up the Prayer and pay alms, hold fast to Allah (disappear in Allah). He is your Friend. How excellent Friend, how excellent Helper.
