040 - Soorah Ghaafir / Mu.min - (The Forgiver / The Believer) - [Makkee]
In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[040:001] Hâ. Mîm.
[These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur'ân, and none but Allâh (Alone) knows their meanings.]
[040:002] The revelation of the Book (this Qur'ân) is from Allâh, the All-Mighty, the All-Knower.
[040:003] The Forgiver of sin, the Acceptor of repentance, the Severe in punishment, the Bestower (of favours). Lâ ilâha illâ Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), to Him is the final return.
[040:004] None disputes in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh but those who disbelieve. So let not their ability of going about here and there through the land (for their purposes) deceive you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam], for their ultimate end will be the fire of Hell)!
[040:005] The people of Nûh (Noah) and the Confederates after them denied (their Messengers) before these; and every (disbelieving) nation plotted against their Messenger to seize him, and disputed by means of falsehood to refute therewith the truth. So I seized them (with punishment), and how (terrible) was My punishment!
[040:006] Thus has the Word of your Lord been justified against those who disbelieved, that they will be the dwellers of the Fire.
[040:007] Those (angels) who bear the Throne (of Allâh) and those around it glorify the praises of their Lord, and believe in Him, and ask forgiveness for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh) (saying): "Our Lord! You comprehend all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who repent and follow Your way, and save them from the torment of the blazing Fire!
