AL SHOORA (THE CONSULTATION)
Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[Shoora 42:1] Ha-Meem. (Alphabets of the Arabic language - Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)
[Shoora 42:2] A’in-Seen-Qaf. (Alphabets of the Arabic language - Allah, and to whomever He reveals, know their precise meanings.)
[Shoora 42:3] This is how Allah the Most Honourable, the All Knowing sends the divine revelation to you (O dear Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) and to those before you.
[Shoora 42:4] To Him only belongs all whatever is in the heavens and all whatever is in the earth; and He is the Supreme, the Greatest.
[Shoora 42:5] The heavens nearly split apart from above - and the angels say the Purity of their Lord while praising Him, and seek forgiveness for those on earth; pay heed! Indeed Allah only is the Oft Forgiving, the Most Merciful.
[Shoora 42:6] And Allah is watching those who have chosen supporters besides Him; and you are not responsible for them.
[Shoora 42:7] And this is how We have divinely revealed to you the Qur’an in Arabic, for you to warn the people of the mother of all towns - Makkah - and those around it, and to warn of the Day of Assembling of which there is no doubt; a group is in Paradise, and another group is in hell.
[Shoora 42:8] And had Allah willed, He could have made them all upon one religion, but He admits whomever He wills into His mercy; and the unjust do not have any friend nor any supporter.
[Shoora 42:9] What! Have they appointed supporters other than Allah? So (know that) Allah only is the Supporter, and He will revive the dead; and He is Able to do all things.
[Shoora 42:10] “The final decision for the matters in
which you differ rests with Allah; such is my Lord - I rely on Him; and
towards Him do I incline.”
