Sura As-Sajdah (The Prostration)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

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

    32:1-3 Alif. Lam. Mim. The revelation of the Scripture whereof there is no doubt is from the Lord of the Worlds . Or say they : He has invented it? Nay, but it is the Truth from your Lord that you may warn a folk to whom no warner came before you, that perhaps they may walk aright.

    32:4-6 It is God Who created the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them, in six Days. Then He mounted the Throne. You have not, beside Him, a helper (and protector) or mediator. Will you not then remember? He directs the ordinance from the heaven to the earth; then it ascends to Him in a Day, of which the measure is a thousand years of that you reckon. Such is the Knower of the invisible and the visible, the Mighty, the Merciful,

    32:7-9 Who made perfect all things which He created, and He began the creation of man from clay; then He made his seed from a draught of despised fluid; then He fashioned him and breathed into him of His spirit; and appointed for you hearing and sight and hearts. Small thanks give you!

    32:10-14 And they say: When we are lost in the earth, how can we then be recreated? Nay but they are disbelievers in the meeting with their Lord. Say: The angel of death, who has charge concerning you, will gather you, and afterward to your Lord you will be returned. Could you but see when the guilty hang their heads before their Lord (and say): Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so send us back; we will do right, now we are sure. And if We had so willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me concerning evildoers took effect: that I will fill Hell with the jinn and people together. So taste (the evil of your deeds). Forasmuch as you forgot the meeting of this your Day, lo! We forget you. Taste the punishment of immortality because of what you used to do.

    32:15-16 Only those believe in Our revelations who, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate and hymn the praise of their Lord, and they are not arrogant, who forsake their beds to cry to their Lord in fear and hope, and spend of what we have bestowed on them.

    32:17 No soul knows what is kept hidden for them of joy, as a reward for what they used to do.

    32:18-22 Is he who is a believer like him who is an evildoer? They are not alike. But as for those who believe and do good works, for them are the Gardens of Retreat - a welcome (in reward) for what they used to do. And as for those who do evil, their retreat is the Fire. Whenever they desire to issue forth from there, they are brought back there. To them it is said: Taste the torment of the Fire, which you used to deny. And verily We make them taste the lower punishment before the greater, that perhaps they may return. And who does greater wrong than he who is reminded of the revelations of his Lord, then turns from them. Lo! We shall requite the guilty.

    32:23-25 We verily gave Moses the Scripture; so be not you in doubt of his receiving it; and We appointed it as a guidance for the Children of Israel. And when they became patient and believed firmly in Our revelations, We appointed from among them, leaders who guided by Our command. Lo! Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ.

    32:26 Is it not a guidance for them (to observe) how many generations He destroyed before them, amid whose dwelling places they do walk? Lo! Therein verily are signs! Will they not then heed?

    32:27 Have they not seen how We lead the water to the barren land and with it bring forth crops that their cattle eat, and they themselves? Will they not then see?

    32:28-30 And they say: When comes this victory (of yours) if you are truthful? Say (to them): On the day of the victory the faith of those who disbelieve, (and who then will believe), will not avail them, neither will they be reprieved. So withdraw from them (O Muhammad), and await (the event). Lo! They also are awaiting (it)
