Section 1


Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Hadeed 57:1] All whatever is in the heavens and in the earth proclaims the Purity of Allah; and He only is the Most Honourable, the Wise.

[Hadeed 57:2] For Him only is the kingship of the heavens and the earth; He gives life and causes death; and He is Able to do all things.

[Hadeed 57:3] He only is the First and He only the Last, and He only is the Evident and He only the Concealed; and it is He Who knows all things.

[Hadeed 57:4] It is He Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then (befitting His Majesty) established Himself upon the Throne (of Control); He knows all what goes into the earth and all what comes out of it, and all what descends from the sky and all that rises in it; and He is with you, wherever you may be; and Allah is seeing your deeds.

[Hadeed 57:5] For Him only is the kingship of the heavens and the earth; and towards Allah only is the return of all matters.

[Hadeed 57:6] He brings the night in a part of the day, and brings the day in a part of the night; and He knows what lies within the hearts.

[Hadeed 57:7] Accept faith in Allah and His Noble Messenger, and spend in His cause from what He has made you the heirs of; so for those among you who accepted faith and spent in His cause, is a great reward.

[Hadeed 57:8] And what is the matter with you, that you should not accept faith in Allah? Whereas this Noble Messenger is calling you to believe in your Lord, and Allah has indeed already taken a covenant from you, if you believe.

[Hadeed 57:9] It is He Who sends down clear verses upon His chosen bondman, in order to take you out from the realms of darkness towards light; and indeed Allah is Most Compassionate, Most Merciful upon you.

[Hadeed 57:10] And what is the matter with you that you should not spend in Allah’s cause, whereas Allah is the Inheritor of all that is in the heavens and in the earth? Those among you who spent and fought before the conquest of Makkah are not equal to others; they are greater in rank than those who spent and fought after the conquest; and Allah has promised Paradise to all of them; and Allah well knows what you do.

Section 2

[Hadeed 57:11] Who will lend a handsome loan to Allah so that He may double it for him? And for such is an honourable reward.
