The Holy Qoran with English Translation

سورة الانسان MP3
1. بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful.
2. هَلْ أَتَىٰ عَلَى الْإِنسَانِ حِينٌ مِّنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُن شَيْئًا مَّذْكُورًا
WAS THERE NOT a time in the life of man when he was not even a mentionable thing?
3. إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ نَّبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا
Verily We created man from a sperm yoked (to the ovum) to bring out his real substance, then gave him hearing and sight.
4. إِنَّا هَدَيْنَاهُ السَّبِيلَ إِمَّا شَاكِرًا وَإِمَّا كَفُورًا
We surely showed him the way that he may either be grateful or deny.
5. إِنَّا أَعْتَدْنَا لِلْكَافِرِينَ سَلَاسِلَ وَأَغْلَالًا وَسَعِيرًا
We have prepared for unbelievers chains and collars and a blazing fire.
6. إِنَّ الْأَبْرَارَ يَشْرَبُونَ مِن كَأْسٍ كَانَ مِزَاجُهَا كَافُورًا
Surely the devotees will drink cups flavoured with palm blossoms
7. عَيْنًا يَشْرَبُ بِهَا عِبَادُ اللَّهِ يُفَجِّرُونَهَا تَفْجِيرًا
From a spring of which the votaries of God will drink and make it flow in abundance.
8. يُوفُونَ بِالنَّذْرِ وَيَخَافُونَ يَوْمًا كَانَ شَرُّهُ مُسْتَطِيرًا
Those who fulfil their vows and fear the Day whose evil shall be diffused far and wide,
9. وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَىٰ حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا
And feed the needy for the love of Him, and the orphans and the captives,
10. إِنَّمَا نُطْعِمُكُمْ لِوَجْهِ اللَّهِ لَا نُرِيدُ مِنكُمْ جَزَاءً وَلَا شُكُورًا
(Saying): "We feed you for the sake of God, desiring neither recompense nor thanks.
11. إِنَّا نَخَافُ مِن رَّبِّنَا يَوْمًا عَبُوسًا قَمْطَرِيرًا
We fear the dismal day calamitous from our Lord."
12. فَوَقَاهُمُ اللَّهُ شَرَّ ذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمِ وَلَقَّاهُمْ نَضْرَةً وَسُرُورًا
So God will protect them from the evil of that day, and grant them happiness and joy,
13. وَجَزَاهُم بِمَا صَبَرُوا جَنَّةً وَحَرِيرًا
And reward them for their perseverence Paradise and silken robes,
14. مُّتَّكِئِينَ فِيهَا عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ ۖ لَا يَرَوْنَ فِيهَا شَمْسًا وَلَا زَمْهَرِيرًا
Where they will recline on couches feeling neither heat of the sun nor intense cold.
15. وَدَانِيَةً عَلَيْهِمْ ظِلَالُهَا وَذُلِّلَتْ قُطُوفُهَا تَذْلِيلًا
The shadows will bend over them, and low will hang the clusters of grapes.
16. وَيُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِآنِيَةٍ مِّن فِضَّةٍ وَأَكْوَابٍ كَانَتْ قَوَارِيرَا
Passed round will be silver flagons and goblets made of glass,
17. قَوَارِيرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ قَدَّرُوهَا تَقْدِيرًا
And crystal clear bottles of silver, of which they will determine the measure themselves.
18. وَيُسْقَوْنَ فِيهَا كَأْسًا كَانَ مِزَاجُهَا زَنجَبِيلًا
There will they drink a cup flavoured with ginger
19. عَيْنًا فِيهَا تُسَمَّىٰ سَلْسَبِيلًا
From a spring by the name of Ever-flowing-Salsabil.
20. ۞ وَيَطُوفُ عَلَيْهِمْ وِلْدَانٌ مُّخَلَّدُونَ إِذَا رَأَيْتَهُمْ حَسِبْتَهُمْ لُؤْلُؤًا مَّنثُورًا
And boys of everlasting youth will go about attending them. Looking at them you would think that they were pearls dispersed.
21. وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ ثَمَّ رَأَيْتَ نَعِيمًا وَمُلْكًا كَبِيرًا
When you look around, you will see delights and great dominion.
22. عَالِيَهُمْ ثِيَابُ سُندُسٍ خُضْرٌ وَإِسْتَبْرَقٌ ۖ وَحُلُّوا أَسَاوِرَ مِن فِضَّةٍ وَسَقَاهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ شَرَابًا طَهُورًا
On their bodies will be garments of the finest green silk and brocade, and they will be adorned with bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give them a purest draught to drink.
23. إِنَّ هَٰذَا كَانَ لَكُمْ جَزَاءً وَكَانَ سَعْيُكُم مَّشْكُورًا
"This in truth is your recompense, and acceptance of your endeavours."
24. إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْقُرْآنَ تَنزِيلًا
We have revealed the Qur'an to you gradually;
25. فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تُطِعْ مِنْهُمْ آثِمًا أَوْ كَفُورًا
So wait for your Lord's command, and do not follow any sinner or disbeliever among them.
26. وَاذْكُرِ اسْمَ رَبِّكَ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا
Meditate upon the name of your Lord morning and evening;
27. وَمِنَ اللَّيْلِ فَاسْجُدْ لَهُ وَسَبِّحْهُ لَيْلًا طَوِيلًا
And bow in homage part of the night, and glorify Him far into the night.
28. إِنَّ هَٰؤُلَاءِ يُحِبُّونَ الْعَاجِلَةَ وَيَذَرُونَ وَرَاءَهُمْ يَوْمًا ثَقِيلًا
Surely men love what hastes away and forget the grievous day (ahead).
29. نَّحْنُ خَلَقْنَاهُمْ وَشَدَدْنَا أَسْرَهُمْ ۖ وَإِذَا شِئْنَا بَدَّلْنَا أَمْثَالَهُمْ تَبْدِيلًا
We created them and fixed their bones and joints; and We could replace them when We like with others like them.
30. إِنَّ هَٰذِهِ تَذْكِرَةٌ ۖ فَمَن شَاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِيلًا
This surely is a reminder: Therefore whosoever desires may take the way to his Lord.
31. وَمَا تَشَاءُونَ إِلَّا أَن يَشَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا
But you will not desire except as God wills. Verily He is all-knowing and all-wise.
32. يُدْخِلُ مَن يَشَاءُ فِي رَحْمَتِهِ ۚ وَالظَّالِمِينَ أَعَدَّ لَهُمْ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا
He admits whosoever He will to His benevolence. But for the evil-doers He has prepared a painful punishment.
