Sura Fussilat (They are explained in detail)
Sheikh / Mahmoud AlHosary

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

    41:1-5 Ha. Mim. A revelation from the Beneficent, the Merciful, a Scripture whereof the verses are expounded, a Lecture in Arabic for people who have knowledge . Good tidings and a warning. But most of them turn away so that they hear not. And they say : Our hearts are protected from that to which you (O Muhammad) call us, and in our ears there is a deafness , and between us and you there is a veil. Act , then . Lo! We also shall be acting.

    41:6-8 Say (to them, O Muhammad): I am only a mortal like you. It is inspired in me that your God is One God, therefore take the straight path to Him and seek forgiveness of Him. And woe to the polytheists, who give not the poor-due, and who are disbelievers in the Hereafter. Lo! As for those who believe and do good works, for them is a reward enduring.

    41:9-12 Say (O Muhammad, to the polytheists): Disbelieve you verily in Him Who created the earth in two Days, and ascribe you to Him rivals? He (and none else) is the Lord of the Worlds. He placed therein firm hills rising above it, and blessed it and measured therein its sustenance in four Days, alike for (all) who ask; then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: Come both of you, willingly or loath. They said: We come, obedient. Then He ordained them seven heavens in two Days and inspired in each heaven its mandate; and we decked the nether heaven with lamps, and rendered it inviolable. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Knower.

    41:13-14 But if they turn away, then say: I warn you of a thunderbolt like the thunderbolt (which fell of old upon the tribes) of Aad and Thamud; when their Messengers came to them from before them and behind them, saying: Worship none but God! They said: If our Lord had willed, He surely would have sent down angels (to us), so lo! We are disbelievers in that wherewith you have been sent.

    41:15-16 As for Aad, they were arrogant in the land without right, and they said: Who is mightier than us in power? Could they not see that God Who created them, He was Mightier than them in power? And they denied Our revelations. Therefore We let loose on them a raging wind in evil days, that We might make them taste the torment of disgrace in the life of the world. And verily the punishment of the Hereafter will be more shameful, and they will not be helped.

    41:17-18 And as for Thamud, We gave them guidance, but they preferred blindness to the guidance, so the bolt of the punishment of humiliation overtook them because of what they used to earn. And We delivered those who believed and used to keep their duty to God.

    41:19-21 And (make mention of) the Day when the enemies of God are gathered to the Fire, they are driven on till, when they reach it, their ears and their eyes and their skins testify against them as to what they used to do. And they say to their skins: Why testify you against us? They say: God has given us speech God gives speech to all things, and He created you at the first, and to Him you are returned.

    41:22-23 You did not hide yourselves lest your ears and your eyes and your skins should testify against you, but you deemed that God knew not much of what you did. That your thoughts which you did think about your Lord, has ruined you; and you find yourselves (this Day) among the lost.

    41:24-25 Even if they bear patiently, the Fire will be their abode; and if they ask for favor, they are not of those to whom favor shall be allowed. And We assigned them comrades (in the world), who made their present and their past fair seeming to them. And the Word concerning nations of the jinn and humankind who passed away before them has effect for them. Verily they are the losers.

    41:26-28 Those who disbelieve say: Heed not this Quran, and talk noisily while it is being recited; perhaps you may conquer. But verily We shall cause those who disbelieve to taste an awful punishment, and verily We shall requite them the worst of what they used to do. That is the reward of God's enemies: the Fire. Therein is their immortal home; payment forasmuch as they denied Our revelations.

    41:29 And those who disbelieve will say: Our Lord! Show us those who deceived us of the jinn and humankind. We will place them underneath our feet that they may be among the nethermost.

    41:30-32 Lo! Those who say: Our Lord is God, and afterward are upright, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not nor grieve, but hear good tidings of the Paradise which you are promised. We are your helpers (and protectors) in the life of the world and in the Hereafter. There you will have (all) that your souls desire, and there you will have (all) for which you pray. A gift of welcome from the Forgiving, the Merciful.

    41:33 And who is better in speech than him who prays to his Lord and does right, and says: Lo! I am of those who are Muslims (surrender to Him).

    41:34-36 The good deed and the evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one, which is better, then lo! He, between whom and you there was enmity (will become) as though he was a bosom friend. But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except the owner of great happiness. And if a whisper from Satan reaches you (O Muhammad) then seek refuge in God. Lo! He is the Hearer, the Knower.

    41:37-38 And of His signs are the night and the day and the sun and the moon. Adore neither the sun nor the moon; but adore God Who created them, if it is in truth Him whom you worship. But if they are too proud – still those who are with your Lord glorify Him night and day, and tire not.

    41:39 And of His signs (is this): that you see the earth barren and desolate, but when We send down water thereon, it thrills and grows. Lo! He Who quickens it is verily the Quickener of the dead. Lo! He is Able to do all things.

    41:40 Lo! Those who distort Our revelations are not hidden from Us. Is he who is hurled into the Fire better, or he who comes secure on the Day of Resurrection? Do what you will. Lo! He is Seer of what you do.

    41:41-42 Lo! Those who disbelieve in the Reminder when it comes to them (are guilty), for lo! It is an unassailable Scripture. Falsehood cannot come at it from before it or behind it. (It is) a revelation from the Wise, the Owner of praise.

    41:43 Nothing is said to you (O Muhammad) except what was said to the Messengers before you. Lo! Your Lord is Owner of forgiveness, and Owner (also) of dire punishment.

    41:44 And if We had appointed it a Lecture in a foreign tongue they would assuredly have said: If only its verses were expounded (so that we might understand)? What! A foreign tongue and an Arab? – Say to them (O Muhammad): For those who believe it is a guidance and a healing; and as for those who disbelieve, there is a deafness in their ears, and it is blindness for them. Such are called to from afar.

    41:45 And We verily gave Moses the Scripture, but there has been dispute concerning it; and but for a Word that had already gone forth from your Lord, it would ere now have been judged between them; but lo! They are in hopeless doubt concerning it.

    41:46 Whoever does right it is for his soul, and whoever does wrong it is against his soul. And your Lord is not at all a tyrant to His slaves.

    41:47-48 To Him is referred (all) knowledge of the Hour. And no fruits burst forth from their sheaths, and no female carries or brings forth but with His knowledge. And on the Day when He calls to them: Where are now My partners? They will say: We confess to You, not one of us is a witness (for them). And those to whom they used to cry of old have failed them, and they perceive they have no place of refuge.

    41:49-51 Man tires not of praying for good, and if ill touches him, then he is disheartened, and desperate. And verily, if We cause him to taste mercy after some hurt that has touched him, he will say: This is my own; and I deem not that the Hour will ever rise, and if I am brought back to my Lord, I surely shall be better off with Him – But We verily shall tell those who disbelieve (all) that they did, and We verily shall make them taste hard punishment. When We show favor to man, he withdraws and turns aside, but when ill touches him then he abounds in prayer.

    41:52 Have you not considered: If it is from God and you reject it – Who is further astray than one who is at open feud (with God)?

    41:53 We shall show them Our signs on the horizons and within themselves until it will be manifest to them that it is the Truth. Does not your Lord suffice, since He is Witness over all things?

    41:54 How! Are they still in doubt about the meeting with their Lord? Lo! Is not He surrounding all things?
