Sura Al-Jathiyah (The Kneeling)
Sheikh / Mahmoud AlHosary

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    45:1-2 Ha. Mim. The revelation of the Scripture is from God , the Mighty, the Wise.

    45:3-6 Lo! In the heavens and the earth are signs for believers. And in your creation, and all the beasts that He scattered in the earth, are signs for a folk whose faith is sure. And the difference of night and day and the provision that God sends down from the sky and thereby quickens the earth after her death, and the ordering of the winds, are signs for a people who have sense. These are the signs of God which We recite to you (O Muhammad) with truth. Then in what fact, after God and His signs, will they believe?

    45:7-8 Woe to each sinful liar, who hears the revelations of God recited to him, and then continues in arrogance as though he heard them not. Give him tidings of a painful punishment.

    45:9 And when he knows anything of Our revelations he makes it a jest. For such there is a shameful punishment.

    45:10 Beyond them there is Hell, and that which they have earned will not avail them, or those whom they have chosen for helpers (and protectors) beside God. Theirs will be an awful punishment.

    45:11 This is guidance. And those who disbelieve the revelations of their Lord, for them there is a painful punishment of wrath.

    45:12-13 It is God Who has made the sea of service to you that the ships may run upon it by His command, and that you may seek of His bounty, and that perhaps you may be thankful; and has made of service to you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; it is all from Him. Lo! Herein verily are signs for people who reflect.

    45:14 Tell those who believe to forgive those who hope not for the days of God; in order that He may requite folk what they used to earn.

    45:15 Whoever does right, it is for his soul, and whoever does wrong, it is against it. And afterward to your Lord you will be brought back.

    45:16-17 And verily We gave the Children of Israel the Scripture and the Command and the Prophethood, and provided them with good things and favored them above (all) peoples; and gave them plain commandments. And they differed not until after the knowledge came to them, through rivalry among themselves. Lo! Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ.

    45:18-19 And now have We set you (O Muhammad) on a clear road of (Our) commandment; so follow it, and follow not the whims of those who know not. Lo! They can avail you nothing against God. And lo! As for the wrongdoers, some of them are helpers (and protectors) of others; and God is the Guardian (and Protector) of those who are pious.

    45:20-21 This is clear indication for people, and a guidance and a mercy for a folk whose faith is sure. Or do those who commit ill deeds suppose that We shall make them as those who believe and do good works, the same life and death? Bad is their judgment!

    45:22 And God has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and that every soul may be repaid what it has earned. And they will not be wronged.

    45:23-24 Have you seen him who makes his desire his god, and God sends him astray purposely, and seals up his hearing and his heart, and sets on his sight a covering? Then who will lead him after God (has condemned him)? Will you not then heed? And they say: There is nothing but our life of the world; we die and we live, and nothing destroys us except time; when they have no knowledge whatsoever of (all) that; they do but guess.

    45:25-26 And when Our clear revelations are recited to them their only argument is that they say: Bring (back) our fathers then, if you are truthful. Say (to them, O Muhammad): God gives life to you, then causes you to die, then gathers you to the Day of Resurrection of which there is no doubt. But most of people know not.

    45:27 And to God belongs the supreme power of the heavens and the earth; and on the Day when the Hour rises, on that Day those who follow falsehood will be lost.

    45:28-29 And you will see each nation crouching, each nation summoned to its record. (And it will be said to them:) This Day you are requited what you used to do. This Our Book pronounces against you with truth. Lo! We have caused (all) that you did to be recorded.

    45:30 Then, as for those who believed and did good works, their Lord will bring them in to His mercy. That is the evident triumph.

    45:31 And as for those who disbelieved (it will be said to them): Were not Our revelations recited to you? But you were arrogant and became a guilty folk.

    45:32 And when it was said: Lo! God"s promise is the truth, and there is no doubt of the Hour"s coming, you said: We know not what the Hour is. We deem it nothing but a conjecture, and we are by no means convinced.

    45:33-35 And the evils of what they did will appear to them, and that which they used to deride will befall them: And it will be said: This Day We forget you, even as you forgot the meeting of this your Day; and your habitation is the Fire, and there is none to help you. This, forasmuch as you made the revelations of God a jest, and the life of the world deceived you. Therefore this Day they come not forth from there, nor can they make amends.

    45:36-37 Then praise be to God, Lord of the heavens and Lords of the earth, the Lord of the Worlds. And to Him (alone) belongs Majesty in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
