Sura 22: AL-HAJJ (THE PILGRIMAGE) - Juz' 17
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمْ إِنَّ زَلْزَلَةَ السَّاعَةِ شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴿۱﴾
Qarib: O people, have fear of your Lord. The earthquake of the Hour shall be a great thing.
Sarwar: People, have fear of your Lord; the quake (of the physical realm) at the Hour of Doom will be terribly violent.
Shakir: O people! guard against (the punishment from) your Lord; surely the violence of the hour is a grievous thing
Pickthall: O mankind! Fear your Lord. Lo! the earthquake of the Hour (of Doom) is a tremendous thing.
Yusufali: O mankind! fear your Lord! for the convulsion of the Hour (of Judgment) will be a thing terrible!
يَوْمَ تَرَوْنَهَا تَذْهَلُ كُلُّ مُرْضِعَةٍ عَمَّا أَرْضَعَتْ وَتَضَعُ كُلُّ ذَاتِ حَمْلٍ حَمْلَهَا وَتَرَى النَّاسَ سُكَارَى وَمَا هُمْ بِسُكَارَى وَلَكِنَّ عَذَابَ اللَّهِ شَدِيدٌ ﴿۲﴾
Qarib: On that Day you will see every one that suckles shall forsake her suckling, and every carrier shall miscarry, and you shall see mankind drunk although they are not drunk; dreadful will be the punishment of Allah.
Sarwar: When that hour comes, every breast-feeding mother will drop her baby out of fear and every pregnant female will cast off her burden. You will see the people behaving as though they were drunk, while, in fact, they are not drunk. They only will look such because of the severity of God's torment.
Shakir: On the day when you shall see it, every woman giving suck shall quit in confusion what she suckled, and every pregnant woman shall lay down her burden, and you shall see men intoxicated, and they shall not be intoxicated but the chastisement of Allah will be severe
Pickthall: On the day when ye behold it, every nursing mother will forget her nursling and every pregnant one will be delivered of her burden, and thou (Muhammad) wilt see mankind as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the Doom of Allah will be strong (upon them).
Yusufali: The Day ye shall see it, every mother giving suck shall forget her suckling-babe, and every pregnant female shall drop her load (unformed): thou shalt see mankind as in a drunken riot, yet not drunk: but dreadful will be the Wrath of Allah.
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّبِعُ كُلَّ شَيْطَانٍ مَرِيدٍ ﴿۳﴾
Qarib: Among people there are those, who without knowledge, dispute about Allah and follow every rebel satan,
Sarwar: Some people argue about God without knowledge and follow every rebellious devil.
Shakir: And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and follows every rebellious Shaitan;
Pickthall: Among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge, and followeth each froward devil;
Yusufali: And yet among men there are such as dispute about Allah, without knowledge, and follow every evil one obstinate in rebellion!
كُتِبَ عَلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ مَنْ تَوَلَّاهُ فَأَنَّهُ يُضِلُّهُ وَيَهْدِيهِ إِلَى عَذَابِ السَّعِيرِ ﴿۴﴾
Qarib: against whom it is written down that whosoever takes him for a guide, he guides astray, and leads him to the punishment of the Blaze.
Sarwar: It has been decided that satan will mislead and submit anyone who establishes friendship with him to the torment of the burning fire.
Shakir: Against him it is written down that whoever takes him for a friend, he shall lead him astray and conduct him to the chastisement of the burning fire
Pickthall: For him it is decreed that whoso taketh him for friend, he verily will mislead him and will guide him to the punishment of the Flame.
Yusufali: About the (Evil One) it is decreed that whoever turns to him for friendship, him will he lead astray, and he will guide him to the Penalty of the Fire.
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ فِي رَيْبٍ مِنَ الْبَعْثِ فَإِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ عَلَقَةٍ ثُمَّ مِنْ مُضْغَةٍ مُخَلَّقَةٍ وَغَيْرِ مُخَلَّقَةٍ لِنُبَيِّنَ لَكُمْ وَنُقِرُّ فِي الْأَرْحَامِ مَا نَشَاءُ إِلَى أَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى ثُمَّ نُخْرِجُكُمْ طِفْلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبْلُغُوا أَشُدَّكُمْ وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُتَوَفَّى وَمِنْكُمْ مَنْ يُرَدُّ إِلَى أَرْذَلِ الْعُمُرِ لِكَيْلَا يَعْلَمَ مِنْ بَعْدِ عِلْمٍ شَيْئًا وَتَرَى الْأَرْضَ هَامِدَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ وَأَنْبَتَتْ مِنْ كُلِّ زَوْجٍ بَهِيجٍ ﴿۵﴾
Qarib: O people, if you are in doubt about the Resurrection, remember that We first created you from dust, then, from a sperm drop, then from a clot, and then from a bitesize tissue formed and unformed, so that We might clarify for you. We establish in the wombs whatever We will for an appointed term, and then We bring you forth as infants, then you come of age. Some of you die, and some of you are kept back to the vilest state of life, after knowing somewhat, they know nothing. And you see the earth dry; but no sooner do We send down rain upon it than it begins to quiver and swell, putting forth every fine variety (of herbage).
Sarwar: People, if you have doubts about the Resurrection, you must know that We created you from clay that was turned into a living germ. This was developed into a clot of blood, which was made into a well formed and partly shapeless lump of flesh. This is how We show you that resurrection is not more difficult for Us than your creation. We cause whatever We want to stay in the womb for an appointed time, We then take you out of the womb as a baby, so that you may grow up and receive strength. Some of you may then die and others may grow to a very old age and lose your memory. You may see the earth as a barren land, but when we send rain, it starts to stir and swell and produce various pairs of attractive herbs.
Shakir: O people! if you are in doubt about the raising, then surely We created you from dust, then from a small seed, then from a clot, then from a lump of flesh, complete in make and incomplete, that We may make clear to you; and We cause what We please to stay in the wombs till an appointed time, then We bring you forth as babies, then that you may attain your maturity; and of you is he who is caused to die, and of you is he who is brought back to the worst part of life, so that after having knowledge he does not know anything; and you see the earth sterile land, but when We send down on it the water, it stirs and swells and brings forth of every kind a beautiful herbage
Pickthall: O mankind! if ye are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then lo! We have created you from dust, then from a drop of seed, then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh shapely and shapeless, that We may make (it) clear for you. And We cause what We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed time, and afterward We bring you forth as infants, then (give you growth) that ye attain your full strength. And among you there is he who dieth (young), and among you there is he who is brought back to the most abject time of life, so that, after knowledge, he knoweth naught. And thou (Muhammad) seest the earth barren, but when We send down water thereon, it doth thrill and swell and put forth every lovely kind (of growth).
Yusufali: O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (our power) to you; and We cause whom We will to rest in the wombs for an appointed term, then do We bring you out as babes, then (foster you) that ye may reach your age of full strength; and some of you are called to die, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing after having known (much), and (further), thou seest the earth barren and lifeless, but when We pour down rain on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs).
ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّهُ يُحْيِي الْمَوْتَى وَأَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿۶﴾
Qarib: That is because Allah is the Truth; He revives the dead and has power over all things.
Sarwar: This is because God is the Supreme Truth who gives life to the dead and who has power over all things.
Shakir: This is because Allah is the Truth and because He gives life to the dead and because He has power over all things
Pickthall: That is because Allah, He is the Truth and because He quickeneth the dead, and because He is Able to do all things;
Yusufali: This is so, because Allah is the Reality: it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who has power over all things.
وَأَنَّ السَّاعَةَ آتِيَةٌ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهَا وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ يَبْعَثُ مَنْ فِي الْقُبُورِ ﴿۷﴾
Qarib: And the Hour is sure to come there is no doubt. And Allah will raise up those in the graves.
Sarwar: There is no doubt about the coming of the Hour of Doom and that God will raise every one from their graves.
Shakir: And because the hour is coming, there is no doubt about it; and because Allah shall raise up those who are in the graves
Pickthall: And because the Hour will come, there is no doubt thereof; and because Allah will raise those who are in the graves.
Yusufali: And verily the Hour will come: there can be no doubt about it, or about (the fact) that Allah will raise up all who are in the graves.
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُنِيرٍ ﴿۸﴾
Qarib: Some dispute about Allah, though they have neither knowledge nor guidance, nor an illuminating Book.
Sarwar: Some people argue about God without knowledge, guidance, and an enlightening Book.
Shakir: And among men there is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge and without guidance and without an illuminating book,
Pickthall: And among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge or guidance or a scripture giving light,
Yusufali: Yet there is among men such a one as disputes about Allah, without Knowledge, without Guidance, and without a Book of Enlightenment,-
ثَانِيَ عِطْفِهِ لِيُضِلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ لَهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا خِزْيٌ وَنُذِيقُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَذَابَ الْحَرِيقِ ﴿۹﴾
Qarib: There is for him who turns his side to lead (others) astray from the Path of Allah, degradation in this life and We shall let him taste the punishment of the burning on the Day of Resurrection.
Sarwar: They turn away (from the Truth) to lead people away from the path of God. Their share in this world will be disgrace and on the Day of Judgment a burning torment.
Shakir: Turning away haughtily that he may lead (others) astray from the way of Allah; for him is disgrace in this world, and on the day of resurrection We will make him taste the punishment of burning:
Pickthall: Turning away in pride to beguile (men) from the way of Allah. For him in this world is ignominy, and on the Day of Resurrection We make him taste the doom of burning.
Yusufali: (Disdainfully) bending his side, in order to lead (men) astray from the Path of Allah: for him there is disgrace in this life, and on the Day of Judgment We shall make him taste the Penalty of burning (Fire).
ذَلِكَ بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ يَدَاكَ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ لَيْسَ بِظَلَّامٍ لِلْعَبِيدِ ﴿۱۰﴾
Qarib: 'This, is the reward for what your hands have forwarded. Allah is not unjust to the worshipers. '
Sarwar: (They will be told), "This is the result of what your hands have wrought. God is certainly not unjust to His servants."
Shakir: This is due to what your two hands have sent before, and because Allah is not in the least unjust to the servants
Pickthall: (And unto him it will be said): This is for that which thy two hands have sent before, and because Allah is no oppressor of His slaves.
Yusufali: (It will be said): "This is because of the deeds which thy hands sent forth, for verily Allah is not unjust to His servants.
