022 - Soorah al-Hajj - (The Pilgrimage) - [Madanee]
[022:016] Thus have We sent it (this Qur'ân) down (to Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as clear signs, evidences and proofs, and surely, Allâh guides whom He wills.
[022:017] Verily, those who believe (in Allâh and in His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), and those who are Jews, and the Sabians, and the Christians, and the Majûs (Magians) and those who worship others besides Allâh; truly, Allâh will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, Allâh is over all things a Witness.
[022:018] See you not that whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawâbb [moving (living) creatures, beasts], and many of mankind prostrate themselves to Allâh. But there are many (men) on whom the punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allâh disgraces, none can honour him. Verily, Allâh does what He wills.
[022:019] These two opponents (believers and disbelievers) dispute with each other about their Lord; then as for those who disbelieved, garments of fire will be cut out for them, boiling water will be poured down over their heads.
[022:020] With it will melt (or vanish away) what is within their bellies, as well as (their) skins.
[022:021] And for them are hooked rods of iron (to punish them).
[022:022] Every time they seek to get away therefrom, from anguish, they will be driven back therein, and (it will be) said to them: "Taste the torment of burning!"
[022:023] Truly, Allâh will admit those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, to Gardens underneath which rivers flow (in Paradise), wherein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls and their garments therein will be of silk.
