Fatir, Surah The Originator of Creation (Qur'an: Surat-35-Fatir)
Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem
All praise is due to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the Assigner of the angels as Rasuls (messengers) with two, three and four wings. He increases in Creation what He wills; surely He has Power over all things.
Whatever Allah opens (increases) to men of His Mercy, there is none to withhold it, and whatever He withholds there is none to send it forth (release) after that. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise (the Owner of Wisdom and Judgment).
O mankind! Call to mind (remember) the Blessing of Allah upon you. Is there a creator besides Allah who gives you sustenance from the heavens and the earth? There is no god but He. How then are you being turned away (from the Faith)?
And if they belie (deny) you, so were the Messengers belied before you. To Allah are all commands (affairs) returned.
O mankind! Surely the Promise of Allah is true; therefore let not the life of the world deceive you. Let not the Deceivers deceive you with Allah (having you trust in His Forgiveness).
Surely the Satan is your enemy, so take him for an enemy. He only summons his faction (supporters) that they may be inmates of the blazing Fire (hell).
Those who disbelieve, for them will be a severe torment, and those who believe (who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (do the soul’s cleansing); for them there is Forgiveness and a Great Reward.
What! Is he whose evil deed is made fair-seeming to him, so that he considers it as good? Verily, Allah leaves in Misguidance whom He wills and causes him whom He wills to have Hidayet. So let not your soul yearn (in grief) for them. Surely Allah is the All-Knower of what they do.
And Allah it is Who sends the winds, so raises the clouds. Then We drive it on to a dead land, so therewith We revive the earth after its death (with rain). Even so is the Nushûr (Resurrection and spreading again).
Whoever has desired might, then to Allah belongs the might wholly. To Him do ascend the good words. The improving deed (cleansing of the soul) lifts it up. Those who plot evil deeds, theirs will be a severe torment and their plot shall perish (will be wasted).
And Allah created you from dust, then of a little fluid, then He made you pairs (the male and the female). No female can bear (conceive) nor can she give birth, except with His Knowledge. No one whose life is lengthened has his life lengthened, nor is anything diminished of one’s life, aside from what it is in the Book. Surely this is easy to Allah.
And the two seas cannot be equal. This is delicious and sweet that subdues thirst by its excessive sweetness, pleasant to drink and this (other) is salty, bitter. Yet from each of them you eat fresh meat and bring forth ornaments which you wear (pearl, coral) and you see the ships cleave through it that you may seek of His Virtue. It is hoped that you may give thanks.
(Allah) causes the night to pass into the day and the day to pass into the night. He has subjected the sun and the moon to His command. Each one runs its course (rotates in its orbit) for an appointed term. This is Allah, your Lord. His is the Sovereignty. Those whom you call upon besides Him do not own even a Qitmir (the thin membrane of a date seed).
If you call on them, they shall not hear your call. Even if they could hear, they cannot answer you. On the Day of Resurrection they will deny your associating them. And none can bring you the likely of this (this news) (other than Allah).
O mankind! You are the poor ones who are in need of Allah, and Allah is He Who is the Self-Sufficient (All-Rich, free of all needs), the Praised One.
If He wills, He will remove (exterminate) you and bring a new creation (to replace you).
And this is not hard for Allah.
And no bearer of burdens (sinful) bears another’s burden (sin) and if one heavily laden calls another to (bear) his load, nothing of it will be lifted even though he be near of kin. You warn only those who are in reverence towards their Lord in the Unseen (without seeing Him) and keep up the Prayer. And whoever cleanses himself (his soul), he purifies himself only for his own soul and to Allah is the return (through the soul’s cleansing, the spirit returns to Allah and reaches Allah).
And the blind and the seeing are not equal.
And nor the darkness and the light (are not equal either).
And nor the shade and the heat (are not equal either).
And neither are the living and the dead equal. Surely Allah makes whom He wills hear, and you cannot make those hear who are in the graves.
You are only a Warner.
Surely We have sent you with the truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a Warner. There is not a nation but a Warner has passed among them.
And if they are belying you, so did those before them indeed belied (their Messengers). Their Messengers brought to them clear arguments (plain proofs, miracles) and the Psalms (the Pages) and the enlightening Book.
Then I seized those who disbelieved. After this how was My denial (My being denied)?
Have you not seen that Allah sends down water from the sky? Then We brought forth therewith crops (fruits) of various colors. And among the mountains are paths, white and red, and black and intensely black?
And likewise of men, cattle, moving creatures, are of various colors. Those of His servants only who are the learned (scholars) are in reverence towards Allah. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving.
Surely those who recite the Book of Allah and keep up the Prayer and spend out of what We have provided for them secretly and openly, hope for a trade (gain) that will never perish.
Their wages (rewards) are paid back to them fully and (Allah) increases them out of His Virtue. Surely He is Oft-Forgiving, the One Who is thanked.
And that which We have revealed to you of the Book is the truth confirming what is in their hands. Verily Allah is indeed All-Aware, and All-Seer of His servants.
Then We gave the Book as inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants. Then of them are those who wrong themselves (their own soul), and of them are those who are Muktesit (those who take the middle course). And of them are those who are foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah’s Permission. That that is a great Virtue!
(They) shall enter the Gardens of Eden. They shall wear therein bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments therein are silk.
And they say (said): “All praise is due to Allah, Who has made grief to depart from us, most surely our Lord is Oft-Forgiving, the One Who is thanked”.
That He, out of His Virtue, has lodged us in a dwelling, where exhaustion (due to hardship and hunger) will not touch us nor will boredom and weariness touch us.
And as for those who disbelieve (who do not wish to reach Allah before death), for them is the Fire of Hell. The Decision is not given for them so that they should die (according to this Decision), nor shall the torment thereof will be lightened to them. Even thus do We punish every ungrateful one.
And they cry for help therein: “Our Lord! Take us out; let us do improving deed other than those which we used to do”. Did We not grant you lives long enough, so that whosoever could deliberate to deliberate therein? And did not the Warner come to you? Therefore taste (the torment), because for the wrong-doers there is no helper.
Surely Allah is the All-Knower of the Unseen of the heavens and the earth. Verily, He is the All-Knower of what is in the bosoms.
He it is Who has made you vicegerents in the earth. Therefore whoever disbelieves, his disbelief is against him. Their disbelief does not increase the disbelievers with their Lord in anything except abhorrence and their disbelief does not increase the disbelievers in anything except loss.
Say: “Have you seen your associates which you worshipped besides Allah? Show me! What did they create from the earth? Or have they any partners in the heavens? Or have We given them a Book so that they are on a clear proof thereof? Nay, the wrongdoers do not hold out promises one to another but only to deceive”.
Verily Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they come to nothing. If they were both to disappear from their places, there is none who could uphold them (the heavens and the earth) after Him. Surely He is Ever Most Gentle, Oft-Forgiving.
And they swore by Allah with the strongest of their oaths that, if a Warner came to them, they would be in Hidayet more than any of the nations. But when a Warner came to them, it increased in nothing but hatred.
They behaved arrogantly in the land and plotted evil. Yet the evil plot besets (reaches) none but only him who makes it. Then, are they waiting for anything except the Sunnah (Way of Dealing, Practice, Rule, Law) of the former people? Yet you cannot find any alteration in the Sunnah of Allah and you cannot find any change in the Sunnah of Allah.
Have they not travelled in the land and seen how was the end of those before them? And they were stronger than these in power? There is nothing in the heavens or in the earth that can render Allah incapable. Surely He is All-Knowing, All-Omnipotent.
And were Allah to interrogate mankind by that which they earned, He would not leave on top of it (the earth) any moving (living) creature. And but He respites them to an appointed term. But when their term comes (questions them). Surely Allah is Ever All-Seeing of His servants.
