Surah 45 - Al Jathiyah THE KNEELING DOWN
045.002 The revelation of the Book is from God the Exalted in Power, Full of
045.003 Verily in the heavens and the earth, are Signs for those who believe.
045.004 And in the creation of yourselves and the fact that animals are scattered
(through the earth), are Signs for those of assured Faith.
045.005 And in the alternation of Night and Day, and the fact that God sends down
Sustenance from the sky, and revives therewith the earth after its death, and
change of the winds-- are Signs for those that are wise.
045.006 Such are the Signs of God, which We rehearse to thee in Truth; then in
exposition will they believe after (rejecting) God and His Signs?
045.007 Woe to each sinful dealer in Falsehoods:
045.008 He hears the Signs of God rehearsed to him, yet is obstinate and lofty, as if
he had not heard them: then announce to him a Penalty Grievous!
045.009 And when he learns something of Our Signs, he takes them in jest: for
there will be a humiliating Penalty.
045.010 In front of them is Hell: and of no profit to them is anything they may have
earned, nor any protectors they may have taken to themselves besides God: for them
is a tremendous Penalty.
045.011 This is (true) Guidance and for those who reject the Signs of their Lord, is a
grievous Penalty of abomination.
045.012 It is God Who has subjected the sea to you, that ships may sail through it by
His command, that ye may seek of His Bounty, and that ye may be grateful.
045.013 And He has subjected to you, as from Him, all that is in the heavens and on
earth: Behold, in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect.
045.014 Tell those who believe, to forgive those who do not look forward to the
Days of God: It is for Him to recompense (for good or ill) each People according to
what they have earned.
045.015 If any one does a righteous deed, it enures to the benefit of his own
he does evil, it works against (his own soul). In the end will ye (all) be brought back
to your Lord.
045.016 We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book the Power of
Command, and Prophethood; We gave them, for Sustenance, things good and pure;
and We favoured them above the nations.
045.017 And We granted them Clear Signs in affairs (of Religion): it was only
knowledge had been granted to them that they fell into schisms, through insolent envy
among themselves. Verily thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Judgement
as to those matters in which they set up differences.
045.018 Then We put thee on the (right) Way of Religion: so follow thou that (Way),
and follow not the desires of those who know not.
045.019 They will be of no use to thee in the sight of God: it is only Wrong-doers
(that stand as) protectors, one to another: but God is the Protector of the Righteous.
045.020 These are clear evidences to men and a Guidance and Mercy to those of
045.021 What! Do those who seek after evil ways think that We shall hold them
equal with those who believe and do righteous deeds-- that equal will be their
their death? Ill is the judgment that they make.
045.022 God created the heavens and the earth for just ends, and in order that
soul may find the recompense of what it has earned, and none of them be wronged.
045.023 Then seest thou such a one as takes as his god his own vain desire? God has,
knowing (him as such), left him astray, and sealed his hearing and his heart (and
understanding), and put a cover on his sight. Who, then, will guide him after God (has
withdrawn Guidance)? Will ye not then receive admonition?
045.024 And they say: "What is there but our life in this world? We shall die
live, and nothing but time can destroy us." But of that they have no knowledge:
045.025 And when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them their argument is nothing
but this: They say, "Bring (back) our forefathers, if what ye say is true!"
045.026 Say: "It is God Who gives you life, then gives you death; then He will
you together for the Day of Judgement about which there is no doubt": But most men
do not understand.
045.027 To God belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and the Day
the Hour of Judgement is established-- that Day will the dealers in Falsehood perish!
045.028 And thou wilt see every sect bowing the knee: Every sect will be called to
its Record: "This Day shall ye be recompensed for all that ye did!
045.029 "This Our Record speaks about you with truth: For We were wont to put on
Record all that ye did."
045.030 Then, as to those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord will
admit them to His Mercy that will be the achievement for all to see.
045.031 But as to those who rejected God, (to them will be said): "Were not Our
Signs rehearsed to you? But ye were arrogant, and were a people given to sin!
045.032 "And when it was said that the promise of God was true, and that the Hour-
there was no doubt about its (coming), ye used to say, 'We know not what is the
we only think it is an idea, and we have no firm assurance.'"
045.033 Then will appear to them the evil (fruits) of what they did, and they
completely encircled by that which they used to mock at!
045.034 It will also be said: "This Day We will forget you as ye forgot the meeting of
this Day of yours! and your abode is the Fire, and no helpers have ye!
045.035 "This, because ye used to take the Signs of God in jest, and the life
world deceived you:" (From) that Day, therefore, they shall not be taken out thence,
nor shall they be received into Grace.
045.036 Then Praise be to God, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth-- Lord and
Cherisher of all the Worlds!
045.037 To Him be glory throughout the heavens and the earth: and He is Exalted in
Power, Full of Wisdom!
