043 - Soorah az-Zukhruf - (The Gold Adornments) - [Makkee]
[043:034] And for their houses, doors (of silver), and thrones (of silver) on which they could recline,
[043:035] And adornments of gold. Yet all this (i.e. the roofs, doors, stairs, elevators, thrones of their houses) would have been nothing but an enjoyment of this world. And the Hereafter with your Lord is (only) for the Muttaqûn.
[043:036] And whosoever turns away blindly from the remembrance of the Most Gracious (Allâh) (i.e. this Qur'ân and worship of Allâh), We appoint for him Shaitân (Satan – devil) to be a Qarîn (a companion) to him.
[043:037] And verily, they (Satans/devils) hinder them from the path (of Allâh), but they think that they are guided aright!
[043:038] Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says [to his Qarîn (Satan/devil companion)] "Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west)" – a worst (type of) companion (indeed)!
[043:039] It will profit you not this Day (O you who turn away from Allâh's remembrance and His worship) as you did wrong, (and) that you will be sharers (you and your Qarîn) in the punishment.
[043:040] Can you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) make the deaf to hear, or can you guide the blind or him who is in manifest error?
[043:041] And even if We take you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) away, We shall indeed take vengeance on them.
[043:042] Or (if) We show you that wherewith We threaten them, then verily, We have perfect command over them.
[043:043] So hold you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) fast to that which is revealed to you. Verily, you are on a Straight Path.
[043:044] And verily, this (the Qur'ân) is indeed a Reminder for you (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) and your people (Quraish people, or your followers), and you will be questioned (about it).
[043:045] And ask (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) those of Our Messengers whom We sent before you: "Did We ever appoint âlihah (gods) to be worshipped besides the Most Gracious (Allâh)?"
[043:046] And indeed We did send Mûsâ (Moses) with Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) to Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs (inviting them to Allâh's religion of Islâm). He said: "Verily, I am a Messenger of the Lord of the 'Âlamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists)."
[043:047] But when he came to them with Our Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) behold, they laughed at them.
(V.43:35) Al-Muttaqûn: means the pious believers of Islamic Monotheism who fear Allâh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allâh much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained).
