45. Surah Al Jathiyah – The Crouching [الجاثية]


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ



حمٓ ﴿الجاثية:١

1. Ha, Meem.


تَنزِيلُ الْكِتٰبِ مِنَ اللهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ ﴿الجاثية:٢

2. The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.


إِنَّ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَاٰيٰتٍ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٣

3. Indeed, within the heavens and earth are signs for the believers.


وَفِى خَلْقِكُمْ وَمَا يَبُثُّ مِن دَآبَّةٍ ءَايٰتٌ لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٤

4. And in the creation of yourselves and what He disperses of moving creatures are signs for people who are certain [in faith].


وَاخْتِلٰفِ الَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَمَآ أَنزَلَ اللهُ مِنَ السَّمَآءِ مِن رِّزْقٍ فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيٰحِ ءَايٰتٌ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٥

5. And [in] the alternation of night and day and [in] what Allah sends down from the sky of provision and gives life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and [in His] directing of the winds are signs for a people who reason.


تِلْكَ ءَايٰتُ اللهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ ۖ فَبِأَىِّ حَدِيثٍۭ بَعْدَ اللهِ وَءَايٰتِهِۦ يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٦

6. These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you in truth. Then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe?


وَيْلٌ لِّكُلِّ أَفَّاكٍ أَثِيمٍ ﴿الجاثية:٧

7. Woe to every sinful liar


يَسْمَعُ ءَايٰتِ اللهِ تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ يُصِرُّ مُسْتَكْبِرًا كَأَن لَّمْ يَسْمَعْهَا ۖ فَبَشِّرْهُ بِعَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ ﴿الجاثية:٨

8. Who hears the verses of Allah recited to him, then persists arrogantly as if he had not heard them. So give him tidings of a painful punishment.


وَإِذَا عَلِمَ مِنْ ءَايٰتِنَا شَيْـًٔا اتَّخَذَهَا هُزُوًا ۚ أُو۟لٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ ﴿الجاثية:٩

9. And when he knows anything of Our verses, he takes them in ridicule. Those will have a humiliating punishment.


مِّن وَرَآئِهِمْ جَهَنَّمُ ۖ وَلَا يُغْنِى عَنْهُم مَّا كَسَبُوا۟ شَيْـًٔا وَلَا مَا اتَّخَذُوا۟ مِن دُونِ اللهِ أَوْلِيَآءَ ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ﴿الجاثية:١۰

10. Before them is Hell, and what they had earned will not avail them at all nor what they had taken besides Allah as allies. And they will have a great punishment.


هٰذَا هُدًى ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ بِـَٔايٰتِ رَبِّهِمْ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مِّن رِّجْزٍ أَلِيمٌ ﴿الجاثية:١١

11. This [Qur’an] is guidance. And those who have disbelieved in the verses of their Lord will have a painful punishment of foul nature.


اللهُ الَّذِى سَخَّرَ لَكُمُ الْبَحْرَ لِتَجْرِىَ الْفُلْكُ فِيهِ بِأَمْرِهِۦ وَلِتَبْتَغُوا۟ مِن فَضْلِهِۦ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٢

12. It is Allah who subjected to you the sea so that ships may sail upon it by His command and that you may seek of His bounty; and perhaps you will be grateful.


وَسَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَمَا فِى الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا مِّنْهُ ۚ إِنَّ فِى ذٰلِكَ لَاٰيٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٣

13. And He has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth – all from Him. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.


قُل لِّلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ يَغْفِرُوا۟ لِلَّذِينَ لَا يَرْجُونَ أَيَّامَ اللهِ لِيَجْزِىَ قَوْمًۢا بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَكْسِبُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٤

14. Say, [O Muhammad], to those who have believed that they [should] forgive those who expect not the days of Allah so that He may recompense a people for what they used to earn.


مَنْ عَمِلَ صٰلِحًا فَلِنَفْسِهِۦ ۖ وَمَنْ أَسَآءَ فَعَلَيْهَا ۖ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ تُرْجَعُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٥

15. Whoever does a good deed – it is for himself; and whoever does evil – it is against the self. Then to your Lord you will be returned.


وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا بَنِىٓ إِسْرٰٓءِيلَ الْكِتٰبَ وَالْحُكْمَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ وَرَزَقْنٰهُم مِّنَ الطَّيِّبٰتِ وَفَضَّلْنٰهُمْ عَلَى الْعٰلَمِينَ ﴿الجاثية:١٦

16. And We did certainly give the Children of Israel the Scripture and judgement and prophethood, and We provided them with good things and preferred them over the worlds.


وَءَاتَيْنٰهُم بَيِّنٰتٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْرِ ۖ فَمَا اخْتَلَفُوٓا۟ إِلَّا مِنۢ بَعْدِ مَا جَآءَهُمُ الْعِلْمُ بَغْيًۢا بَيْنَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَقْضِى بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيٰمَةِ فِيمَا كَانُوا۟ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٧

17. And We gave them clear proofs of the matter [of religion]. And they did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.


ثُمَّ جَعَلْنٰكَ عَلَىٰ شَرِيعَةٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْرِ فَاتَّبِعْهَا وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَآءَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿الجاثية:١٨

18. Then We put you, [O Muhammad], on an ordained way concerning the matter [of religion]; so follow it and do not follow the inclinations of those who do not know.


إِنَّهُمْ لَن يُغْنُوا۟ عَنكَ مِنَ اللهِ شَيْـًٔا ۚ وَإِنَّ الظّٰلِمِينَ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءُ بَعْضٍ ۖ وَاللهُ وَلِىُّ الْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿الجاثية:١٩

19. Indeed, they will never avail you against Allah at all. And indeed, the wrongdoers are allies of one another; but Allah is the protector of the righteous.


هٰذَا بَصٰٓئِرُ لِلنَّاسِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةٌ لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢۰

20. This [Qur’an] is enlightenment for mankind and guidance and mercy for a people who are certain [in faith].


أَمْ حَسِبَ الَّذِينَ اجْتَرَحُوا۟ السَّيِّـَٔاتِ أَن نَّجْعَلَهُمْ كَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ الصّٰلِحٰتِ سَوَآءً مَّحْيَاهُمْ وَمَمَاتُهُمْ ۚ سَآءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢١

21. Or do those who commit evils think We will make them like those who have believed and done righteous deeds – [make them] equal in their life and their death? Evil is that which they judge.


وَخَلَقَ اللهُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضَ بِالْحَقِّ وَلِتُجْزَىٰ كُلُّ نَفْسٍۭ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٢

22. And Allah created the heavens and earth in truth and so that every soul may be recompensed for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.


أَفَرَءَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلٰهَهُۥ هَوَىٰهُ وَأَضَلَّهُ اللهُ عَلَىٰ عِلْمٍ وَخَتَمَ عَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِۦ وَقَلْبِهِۦ وَجَعَلَ عَلَىٰ بَصَرِهِۦ غِشٰوَةً فَمَن يَهْدِيهِ مِنۢ بَعْدِ اللهِ ۚ أَفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٣

23. Have you seen he who has taken as his god his [own] desire, and Allah has sent him astray due to knowledge and has set a seal upon his hearing and his heart and put over his vision a veil? So who will guide him after Allah ? Then will you not be reminded?


وَقَالُوا۟ مَا هِىَ إِلَّا حَيَاتُنَا الدُّنْيَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحْيَا وَمَا يُهْلِكُنَآ إِلَّا الدَّهْرُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم بِذٰلِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَظُنُّونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٤

24. And they say, “There is not but our worldly life; we die and live, and nothing destroys us except time.” And they have of that no knowledge; they are only assuming.


وَإِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَايٰتُنَا بَيِّنٰتٍ مَّا كَانَ حُجَّتَهُمْ إِلَّآ أَن قَالُوا۟ ائْتُوا۟ بِـَٔابَآئِنَآ إِن كُنتُمْ صٰدِقِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٥

25. And when Our verses are recited to them as clear evidences, their argument is only that they say, “Bring [back] our forefathers, if you should be truthful.”


قُلِ اللهُ يُحْيِيكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يَجْمَعُكُمْ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيٰمَةِ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٦

26. Say, ” Allah causes you to live, then causes you to die; then He will assemble you for the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt, but most of the people do not know.”


وَلِلّٰهِ مُلْكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَخْسَرُ الْمُبْطِلُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٧

27. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And the Day the Hour appears – that Day the falsifiers will lose.


وَتَرَىٰ كُلَّ أُمَّةٍ جَاثِيَةً ۚ كُلُّ أُمَّةٍ تُدْعَىٰٓ إِلَىٰ كِتٰبِهَا الْيَوْمَ تُجْزَوْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٨

28. And you will see every nation kneeling [from fear]. Every nation will be called to its record [and told], “Today you will be recompensed for what you used to do.


هٰذَا كِتٰبُنَا يَنطِقُ عَلَيْكُم بِالْحَقِّ ۚ إِنَّا كُنَّا نَسْتَنسِخُ مَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٢٩

29. This, Our record, speaks about you in truth. Indeed, We were having transcribed whatever you used to do.”


فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ الصّٰلِحٰتِ فَيُدْخِلُهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ فِى رَحْمَتِهِۦ ۚ ذٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْمُبِينُ ﴿الجاثية:٣۰

30. So as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord will admit them into His mercy. That is what is the clear attainment.


وَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓا۟ أَفَلَمْ تَكُنْ ءَايٰتِى تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَاسْتَكْبَرْتُمْ وَكُنتُمْ قَوْمًا مُّجْرِمِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٣١

31. But as for those who disbelieved, [it will be said], “Were not Our verses recited to you, but you were arrogant and became a people of criminals?


وَإِذَا قِيلَ إِنَّ وَعْدَ اللهِ حَقٌّ وَالسَّاعَةُ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهَا قُلْتُم مَّا نَدْرِى مَا السَّاعَةُ إِن نَّظُنُّ إِلَّا ظَنًّا وَمَا نَحْنُ بِمُسْتَيْقِنِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٣٢

32. And when it was said, ‘Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth and the Hour [is coming] – no doubt about it,’ you said, ‘We know not what is the Hour. We assume only assumption, and we are not convinced.’ ”


وَبَدَا لَهُمْ سَيِّـَٔاتُ مَا عَمِلُوا۟ وَحَاقَ بِهِم مَّا كَانُوا۟ بِهِۦ يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٣٣

33. And the evil consequences of what they did will appear to them, and they will be enveloped by what they used to ridicule.


وَقِيلَ الْيَوْمَ نَنسَىٰكُمْ كَمَا نَسِيتُمْ لِقَآءَ يَوْمِكُمْ هٰذَا وَمَأْوَىٰكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن نّٰصِرِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٣٤

34. And it will be said, “Today We will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours, and your refuge is the Fire, and for you there are no helpers.


ذٰلِكُم بِأَنَّكُمُ اتَّخَذْتُمْ ءَايٰتِ اللهِ هُزُوًا وَغَرَّتْكُمُ الْحَيَوٰةُ الدُّنْيَا ۚ فَالْيَوْمَ لَا يُخْرَجُونَ مِنْهَا وَلَا هُمْ يُسْتَعْتَبُونَ ﴿الجاثية:٣٥

35. That is because you took the verses of Allah in ridicule, and worldly life deluded you.” So that Day they will not be removed from it, nor will they be asked to appease [ Allah ].


فَلِلّٰهِ الْحَمْدُ رَبِّ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَرَبِّ الْأَرْضِ رَبِّ الْعٰلَمِينَ ﴿الجاثية:٣٦

36. Then, to Allah belongs [all] praise – Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, Lord of the worlds.


وَلَهُ الْكِبْرِيَآءُ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ ﴿الجاثية:٣٧

37. And to Him belongs [all] grandeur within the heavens and the earth, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
