The Angels (Al­Malâikah )

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1Praise be to Allah who created the heavens and the earth, who made the angels messengers with wings, two or three or four pairs: He adds to creation as He pleases: for Allah has power over all things.

2What Allah out of His mercy does bestow on mankind none can withhold: what He does withhold none can grant apart from Him: and He is the exalted in power, full of wisdom.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Alhamdu lillahi fatiris samawati wal ardi jailil mala ikati rusulan uli ajnihatim matsna wa sulatsa wa rubaa yazidu fil halqi ma yasya innallaha ala kulli saiin qadir

2Ma yaftahil lahu linnasi mir rahmatin fala mumsika laha wa ma yumsik fala mursila lahu min badih wa huwal azizul hakim

[Commentary continues below.]

3O men! call to mind the grace of Allah unto you! Is there a creator other than Allah to give you sustenance from heaven or earth? There is no god but He: how then are you deluded away from the truth?

4And if they reject you, so were apostles rejected before you: all affairs go back to Allah for decision.

5men! certainly the promise of Allah is true. Let not then this present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver deceive you about Allah.1

6Verily, Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents that they may become companions of the blazing fire.

7For those who reject Allah is a terrible penalty: but for those who believe and work righteous deeds is forgiveness and a magnificent reward.

3Ya ayyuhan nasuz kuru nimatal lahi alaikum hal min haliqin gairul lahi yarzuqukum minassamai wal ard la ilaha illa huwa fa ana tufakun

4Wa iyyukaz zibuka faqad kuz zibat rusulum min qablik wa ilallahi turjaul umur

5Ya ay yuhan nasu inna wadal lahi haq qun fala tagur rannakumul hayatud dunya wa la yagur ran nakum bil lahil garur

6Innas Syaitana lakum aduw wun fat taizuhu aduw wa innama yadu hizbahu liyakunu min asabis sair

7Allazina kafaru lahum azabun sadidi wal lazina amanu wa amilus salihati lahum magfiratuw wa ajrun kabir

1. This verse can be paralleled to 1 John 2:15-17:

Stop loving the world and the things that are in the world. If anyone persists in loving the world, the Father's love is not in him. For everything that is in the world-the desire for fleshly gratification, the desire for possessions, and worldly arrogance-is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world and its desires are fading away, but the person who does God's will remains forever.

[Commentary continues below.]

8Is he then to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring so that he looks upon it as good equal to one who is rightly guided? For Allah leaves to stray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. So let not your soul go out in sighing after them: for Allah knows well all that they do!

9It is Allah who sends forth the winds so that they raise up the clouds and We drive them to a land that is dead and revive the earth therewith after its death: even so will be the resurrection!

8Afaman zuyyina lahu suu amalihi fara ahu hasana fa innallaha yudil lu mayyasyau wa yahdi may yasyafalataz hab nafsuka alaihim hasarat innallaha alimun bima yasnaun

9Wallahul lazi arsalar riyaha fa tutsiru sahaban fasuqnahu ila baladim mayyitin fa ahyaina bihil arda bada mautiha kazalikan nusur

[Commentary continues below.]

10If any do seek for glory and power, to Allah belong all glory and power. To Him mount up all words of purity: it is He who exalts each deed of righteousness. Those that lay plots of evil, for them is a terrible penalty; and the plotting of such will be void of result.

11And Allah did create you from dust; then from a sperm-drop; then He made you in pairs. And no female conceives or lays down her load but with His knowledge. Nor is a man long lived granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life but is in a decree. All this is easy for Allah.

12Nor are the two bodies of flowing water alike, the one palatable, sweet, and pleasant to drink, and the other salty and bitter. Yet from each kind of water you eat flesh, fresh and tender and you extract ornaments to wear; and you see the ships therein that plough the waves that you may seek thus of the bounty of Allah that you may be grateful.

10Mankana yuridul izzata falil lahil izzatu jamia ilaihi yas adul kalimut tayyibu wal amalus salihu yarfauh wal lazina yamkurunassayyiati lahum azabun sadid wa makru ulaika huwa yabur

11Wallahu halaqakum min turabin summa min nutfatin summa jaalakum azwaja wa ma tahmilu min unsawa latadau illabiilmih wa mayuam maru mim muam mariw wa layunqasu min umurihi illa fi kitab inna zalika alal lahi yasir

12Wa ma yastawil bahrani haza azbun furatun sa igun sarabuhu wa haza milhun ujaj wa min kul lin takuluna lahman tariyyaw wa tastakrijuna hilyatan talbasunaha wa taral fulka fihi mawahira litabtagu min fadlihi wa la allakum taskurun

[Commentary continues below.]

13He merges night into day and He merges day into night, and He has subjected the sun and the moon to His law: each one runs its course for a term appointed. Such is Allah, your Lord: to Him belongs all dominion. And those whom you invoke besides Him have not the least power.

14If you invoke them, they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen, they cannot answer your prayer. On the day of judgment they will reject your “partnership.” And none can tell you like the one who is acquainted with all things.

15O men! it is you that have need of Allah: but Allah is the one free of all wants, worthy of all praise.

16If He so pleased He could blot you out and bring in a new creation:

13Yulijul laila fin nahari wa yulijun nahara fil laili wa sah haras samsa wal qamar kul luyyajril li ajalim musam ma zalikumul lahu rabbukum lahul mulk wal lazina taduna min dunihi ma yamlikuna min qitmir

14In taduhum la yasmau dua akum wa lau samiu mastajabu lakum wa yaumal qiyamati yakfuruna bisirkikum wa la yunab biuka mislu habir

15Ya ayyuhan nasu antumul fuqarau ilallah wallahu huwal ganiyyul hamid

16Iyyasya yuz hibkum wa yati bihalqin jadid

17Wa ma zalika alallahi bi aziz

[Commentary continues below.]

17Nor is that difficult for Allah.

18Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another’s burden. If one heavily laden should call another to his load, not the least portion of it can be carried, even though he be nearly related. You can admonish such as fear their Lord unseen and establish regular prayer and whoever purifies himself, does so for the benefit of his own soul; and the destination is to Allah.

19And the blind and the seeing are not alike;

20Nor are the depths of darkness and the light;

21Nor are the shade and the heat of the sun:

22Nor are alike those that are living and those that are dead. Allah can make any that He wills to hear; but you cannot make those to hear who are in graves.

17Wa ma zalika alallahi bi aziz

18Wa la taziru waziratuw wizra uhra wa intadu musqalatun ila himliha la yuhmal minhu sai uw wa lau kana zaqurba innama tunzirul lazina yahsauna rab bahum bil gaibi wa aqamus salah wa man tazak ka fa innama yatazak ka linafsih wa ilallahil masir

19Wa ma yastawil ama wal basir

20Wa lazzulu matu wa lannur

21Wa lazzil lu wa lalharur

22Wa ma yastawil ahyau wa lal amwat innal laha yusmiu may yasya wa ma anta bimusmiim man fil qubur

[Commentary continues below.]

23You are no other than a warner.

24Verily, We have sent you in truth as a bearer of glad tidings and as a warner: and there never was a people without a warner having lived among them.

25And if they reject you, so did their predecessors to whom came their apostles with clear signs, books of dark prophecies and the book of enlightenment.

26In the end did I punish those who rejected faith: and how was My rejection!

27Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky? With it We then bring out produce of various colors. And in the mountains are tracts white and red of various shades of color and black intense in hue.

23In anta illa nazir

24Inna arsalnaka bil haqqi basiraw wa nazira wa inmin ummatin illa hala fiha nazir

25Wa iyyukazzibuka faqad kazzabal lazina min qablihim ja athum rusuluhum bil bayyinati wa biz zuburi wa bil kitabil munir

26Summa ahaztul lazina kafaru fakaifa kana nakir

27Alam tara annallaha anzala minas sama ma fa ahrajna bihi samaratim muhtalifan alwanuha wa minal jibali judadun biduwwa humrum muhtalifun alwanuha wa garabibu sud

[Commentary continues below.]

28And so among men and crawling creatures and cattle are they of various colors. Those truly fear Allah among His servants who have knowledge: for Allah is exalted in might, often forgiving.

29Those who rehearse the book of Allah, establish regular prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them, secretly and openly hope for a commerce that will never fail:

30For He will pay them their meet, no, He will give them more out of His bounty; for He is often forgiving, most ready to appreciate service.

31That which We have revealed to you of the book is the truth, confirming what was before it: for Allah is assuredly with respect to his servants well acquainted and fully observant.

28Wa minan nasi wa dawabbi wal anami muhtalifun alwanuhu kazalik innama yahsal laha min ibadihil ulamau innal laha azizun gafur

29Innal lazina yatluna kitabal lahi wa aqamus salata wa anfaqu mimma razaqnahum sirraw wa alaniyatayyarjuna tijaratallan tabur

30Liyuwaf fiyahum ujurahum wa yazidahum minfadlih innahu gafurun sakur

31Wallazi auhaina ilaika minalkitabi huwal haqqu musad diqal lima baina yadaih innallaha biibadihi lahabirun basir

[Commentary continues below.]

32Then We have given the book for inheritance to such of Our servants as We have chosen: but there are among them some who wrong their own souls; some who follow a middle course; and some who are by Allah’s leave foremost in good deeds; that is the highest grace.2

33Gardens of eternity will they enter: therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls; and their garments there will be of silk.3

34And they will say: “Praise be to Allah who has removed from us sorrow: for Our Lord is indeed often forgiving, ready to appreciate service:

35“Who has out of His bounty settled us in a home that will last: no toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us therein.”

32Summa aurasnal lazinas tafaina min ibadina faminhum zalimul linafsih wa minhum muqtasid wa minhum sabiqun bil hairati bi iznillah zalika huwal fadlul kabir

33Jannatu adniyyadhulunaha yuhal launa fiha min asawira min zahabiw wa luluan wa libasuhum fiha harir

34Wa qalul hamdu lillahil lazi azhaba annal hazan inna rabbana lagfurun sakur

35Allazi ahal lana daral muqamati min fadlih la yamas suna fiha nasabuw wala yamas suna fiha lugub

2. The Bible says of those that are now saved that, in God’s foreknowledge, they were created unto good works before the foundation of the world; Ephesians 2:10-11:

For we are his masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared long ago to be our way of life. So then, remember that at one time you were gentiles by birth and were called the uncircumcision by what is called the circumcision made in the flesh by hands.

This how things are with all people and this is the highest grace.

3. From a Christian perspective, those who will be in heaven will be clothed in white because their garments would have been washed in the blood of the Lamb. The street of heaven will be decked in gold. Nothing is mentioned of their garments being of silk.

36But those who reject Allah, for them will be the fire of hell: no term shall be determined for them so they should die nor shall its penalty be lightened for them: thus do We reward every ungrateful one!

37Therein will they cry aloud: “Our Lord! bring us out: we shall work righteousness, not the deeds we used to do!” Did we not give you long enough life so that he that would, should receive admonition? And moreover the warner came to you. So taste the fruit of your deeds: for the wrongdoers there is no helper.”

38Verily, Allah knows all the hidden things of the heavens and the earth: verily, He has full knowledge of all that is in men’s hearts.

36Wal lazina kafaru lahum naru jahannam la yuqda alaihim fayamutu wala yukaf fafu anhum min azabiha kazalika najzi kulla kafur

37Wa hum yastarikuna fiha rabana ahrijna namal salihan gairal lazi kunna namal awalam nuam mirkum ma yatazak karu fihi man tazak kara wa ja akumun nazir fazuqu fama lizzalimin na min nasir

38Innallaha alimu gaibis samawati wal ard innahu alimun bizatis sudur

[Commentary continues below.]

39He it is that has made you inheritors in the earth: if then any do reject (Allah) their rejection works against themselves: their rejection but adds to the odium for the unbelievers in the sight of their Lord: their rejection but adds to their own undoing.

40Say: “Have you seen these partners of yours whom you call upon besides Allah?” Show me what it is they have created in the earth. Or have they a share in the heavens? Or have We given them a book from which they can derive clear evidence? No, the wrongdoers promise each other nothing but delusions.4

41It is Allah who sustains the heavens and the earth lest they cease to function: and if they should fail, there is none, not one, can sustain them thereafter: verily, He is most forbearing, often forgiving.

39Huwal lazi jaalakum hala ifa fil ard faman kafara faalaihi kufruh wa la yazidul kafirina kufruhum inda rabbihim illa maqta wa la yazidul kafirina kufruhum il la hasara

40Qul ara aitum suraka akumul lazina taduna mindunil lah aruni maza halaqu minal ardi am lahum sirkun fissamawat am atainahum kitaban fahum ala bayinatim min bal iyyaiduz zalimuna baduhum badan illa gurura

41Innallaha yumsikus samawati wal arda an tazula wala in zalata inamsakahuma min afadim min badih innahu kana haliman gafura

4. Allah’s memory span is very short, now, both Qur’an 3:49 and 5:110 records that Jesus created a bird, breathed into it and it became a soaring bird. One of the partners associated with Allah as claimed by Allah is Jesus Christ, and this argument is used to discredit His claim to deity. But if indeed, He did create as the Qur’an says, then He is a bonafide partner with Allah. Rightly so, Jesus is known as the Word from God whose name is Jesus, son of Mary (kalimatim minhu ismuhul masihu isa bnu Maryama).

John rightly calls Him the Word of God (John 1:1-3):

In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made.

Jesus is coequal with God because the Spoken Word of anyone is great as the one from the Word came.

42And they swore their strongest oaths by Allah, that if a warner came to them they would follow his guidance better than any other of the peoples: but when a warner came to them it has only increased their flight from righteousness.

43On account of their arrogance in the land and their plotting of evil. But the plotting of evil will hem in only the authors thereof. Now are they but looking for the way the ancients were dealt with? But no change will you find in Allah’s way: no turning off will you find in Allah’s way.

42Wa aqsamu billahi jahda aimanihim la in ja ahum nazirul layakunan na ahda min ihdal umam falamajaahum nazirum mazadahum illanufura

43Istikbaran filardi wa makras sayyi wa la yahiqul makrus sayyi uilla bi ahlil fahal yansuruna illa sunatal aw walin falan tajida lisun nati lahi tabdila walan tajida lisun natillahi tahwila

 

44Do they not travel through the earth and see what was the end of those before them, though they were superior to them in strength? Nor is Allah to be frustrated by anything whatever in the heavens or on earth: for He is all-knowing, all-powerful.

45And if Allah were to punish men according to what they deserve, He would not leave on the back of the earth a single living creature: but He gives them respite for a stated term: when their term expires, verily, Allah has in his sight all His servants.

44Awalam yasiru fil ardi fayanzuru kaifa kana aqibatul lazina min qablihim wa kanu asad da minhum quwwah wa ma kanallahu liyujizahu min saiin fissamawati wa la fil ard innahu kana aliman qadira

45Wa lau yu ahizul lahun nasa bima kasabu ma taraka ala zahriha min dab batiw wa lakiyyu ahiruhum ila ajalim musam ma fa iza ja a aja luhum fa innallaha kana biibadihi basira
