040 - Soorah Ghaafir / Mu.min - (The Forgiver / The Believer) - [Makkee]
[040:050] They will say: "Did there not come to you, your Messengers with (clear) evidences (and signs)?" They will say: "Yes." They will reply: "Then call (as you like)! And the invocation of the disbelievers is nothing but in vain (as it will not be answered by Allâh)!"
[040:051] Verily, We will indeed make victorious Our Messengers and those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) in this world's life and on the Day when the witnesses will stand forth (i.e. Day of Resurrection)? –
[040:052] The Day when their excuses will be of no profit to Zâliműn (polytheists, wrong doers and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh). Theirs will be the curse, and theirs will be the evil abode (i.e. painful torment in Hell-fire).
[040:053] And, indeed We gave Műsâ (Moses) the guidance, and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture [i.e. the Taurât (Torah)]?–
[040:054] A guide and a reminder for men of understanding.
[040:055] So be patient (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]). Verily, the Promise of Allâh is true, and ask forgiveness for your fault, and glorify the praises of your Lord in the 'Ashî (i.e. the time period after the midnoon till sunset) and in the Ibkâr (i.e. the time period from early morning or sunrise till before midnoon) [it is said that, that means the five compulsory congregational Salât (prayers) or the 'Asr and Fajr prayers].
[040:056] Verily, those who dispute about the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, without any authority having come to them, there is nothing else in their breasts except pride [to accept you (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as a Messenger of Allâh and to obey you]. They will never have it (i.e. Prophethood which Allâh has bestowed upon you). So seek refuge in Allâh (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] from the arrogants). Verily, it is He Who is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.
[040:057] The creation of the heavens and the earth is indeed greater than the creation of mankind; yet, most of mankind know not.
[040:058] And not equal are the blind and those who see; nor are (equal) those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism), and do righteous good deeds, and those who do evil. Little do you remember!
