039 - Soorah az-Zumar - (The Groups) - [Makkee]
[039:041] Verily, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) the Book (this Qur'‚n) for mankind in truth. So, whosoever accepts the guidance, it is only for his own self; and whosoever goes astray, he goes astray only to his (own) loss. And you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) are not a WakÓl (trustee or disposer of affairs, or guardian) over them.
[039:042] It is All‚h Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.
[039:043] Have they taken (others) as intercessors besides All‚h? Say: "Even if they have power over nothing whatever and have no intelligence?"
[039:044] Say: "To All‚h belongs all intercession. His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. Then to Him you shall be brought back."
[039:045] And when All‚h Alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter are filled with disgust (from the Oneness of All‚h) and when those (whom they obey or worship) besides Him (other than All‚h, like all false deities Ė it may be a Messenger, an angel, a pious man, a jinn, or any other creature even idols, graves of religious people, saints, priests, monks and others) are mentioned, behold, they rejoice!
[039:046] Say (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "O All‚h! Creator of the heavens and the earth! All-Knower of the Ghaib (Unseen) and the seen! You will judge between your slaves about that wherein they used to differ."
[039:047] And those who did wrong (the polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of All‚h), if they had all that is in earth and therewith as much again, they verily, would offer it to ransom themselves therewith on the Day of Resurrection from the evil torment; and there will become apparent to them from All‚h what they had not been reckoning.
