The Beneficent (Ar-Rahmân)

In the name of Allah, Gracious, Merciful.

1Gracious!

2It is He who has taught the Qur’an.

3He has created man:

4He has taught him speech.

5The sun and the moon follow courses computed;

6And the herbs and the trees both bow in adoration.1

7And the firmament has He raised high and He has set up the balance of justice.

8In order that you may not transgress due balance.

9So establish weight with justice and fall not short in the balance.

10And it is He who has spread out the earth for His creatures:

11Therein is fruit and date palms producing spathes:

12Also corn with its leaves and stalk for fodder and sweet smelling plants.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

1Arahman

2Allamal quran

3Halaqal insan

4Allamahul bayan

5Asamsu wal qamaru bihusban

6Wanajmu wa sajaru yasjudan

7Wasamaa rafaanha wa wadaal mizan

8Alla tatgau fil mizan

9Wa aqimul wazna bil qisti wa la tuksirul mizan

10Walarda wadaaha lil anam

11Fiha fakihatu wan naklu satul akmam

12Wal habu zul asfi warraihan

1. All things indeed do praise God who is the Creator of all things.

[Commentary continues below.]

13Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?2

14He created man from sounding clay like unto pottery.

15And He created jinns from fire free of smoke:

16Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

17Lord of the two Easts and Lord of the two Wests:3

18Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

19He has let free the two bodies of flowing water meeting together:4

20Between them is a barrier which they do not transgress:

21Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

22Out of them come pearls and coral:

23Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

13Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaz ziban

14Halaqal insana min salsalin kal fakar

15Wa halaqal jan na mim marijim minnar

16Fabi ayi ala rabbikuma tukaziban

17Rabbul masriqaini wa rabbul magribain

18Fabi ayi ala rabbikuma tukaziban

19Marajal bahraini yaltaqiyan

20Bainahuma barzakulla yabgiyan

21Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaziban

22Yakhruju minhumal lulu uwal marjan

23Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaziban

2. The goodness of the Lord, according to Paul in Romans 2:4: Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? Therefore one may deny the favors of God before other human beings, he cannot so do in the presence of the Almighty.

3. The two Easts and two Wests, Yusuf Ali says “are the two extreme points where the sun rises during the year, and includes all the points between. Similarly the two Wests include the two extreme points of the sun’s setting and all the points between”. Muhammad Ali sees the two Easts and Wests as the position of the sun in the summer and winter. It is best in this context to say that He is God of all. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess.

4. The two bodies of water is the salt and fresh waters.

[Commentary continues below.]

24And His are the ships sailing smoothly through the seas lofty as mountains:5

25Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

26All that is on earth will perish;

27But will abide the face of your Lord, full of majesty, bounty, and honor.

28Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

29Of Him seeks every creature in the heavens and on earth: every day in splendor does He shine!

30Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

31Soon shall We settle your affairs, O worlds!6

32Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

24Wa lahul jawaril munsa atu fil bahri kalalam

25Fabi ayi alai rabikuma tukaziban

26Kullu man alaiha fan

27Wa yabqa wajhu rabbika zul jalali walikram

28Fabi ayi alai rabikuma tukaziban

29Yas aluhu man fi samawati walard kulla yaumin huwa fi san

30Fabi ayi alai rabikuma tukaziban

31Sanafrugu lakum ayuhats saqalan

32Fabi ayi alai rabbimuma tukaziban

 

5. The ships are not His, although He gave mankind the wisdom to build them, He oversees everything, those He Personally created and those created by mankind.

 

6. The two worlds are necessarily the worlds of the unbeliever and the believers. Better yet, the kingdom of God Almighty and the kingdom of Satan and his darkness.

[Commentary continues below.]

33O you assembly of jinns and men! if it be you can pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, pass! not without authority shall you be able to pass!

40Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaziban

 [Commentary continues below.]

41The sinners will be known by their marks: and they will be seized by their forelocks and their feet.

42Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

43This is the hell which the sinners deny.

44In its midst and in the midst of boiling hot water will they wander round!

45Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

46But for such as fear the time when they will stand before their Lord, there will be two gardens

47Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

48Containing all kinds of trees and delights.

52In them will be fruits of every kind two and two.

50Fihima ainani tajriyan

51Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaziban

52Fihima min kulli fakihatin zaujan

 

 [Commentary continues below.]

53Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

54They will recline on carpets whose inner linings will be of rich brocade: the fruit of the gardens will be near.

55Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

56In them will be chaste maidens restraining their glances whom no man or jinn before them has touched.7

57Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

58Like unto rubies and coral.

59Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

60Is there any reward for good other than good?

61Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

62And besides these two there are two other gardens

63Then which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?

53Fabi ayi alai rabbikuma tukaziban

54Mutakina ala furusin batainuha min istabraq wajanal jannataini dan
