57. Surah Al Hadid – The Iron [الحديد]


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ



سَبَّحَ لِلّٰهِ مَا فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ ﴿الحديد:١

1. Whatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.


لَهُۥ مُلْكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۖ يُحْىِۦ وَيُمِيتُ ۖ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ﴿الحديد:٢

2. His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things competent.


هُوَ الْأَوَّلُ وَالْاٰخِرُ وَالظّٰهِرُ وَالْبَاطِنُ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمٌ ﴿الحديد:٣

3. He is the First and the Last, the Ascendant and the Intimate, and He is, of all things, Knowing.


هُوَ الَّذِى خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضَ فِى سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ ۚ يَعْلَمُ مَا يَلِجُ فِى الْأَرْضِ وَمَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْهَا وَمَا يَنزِلُ مِنَ السَّمَآءِ وَمَا يَعْرُجُ فِيهَا ۖ وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ ۚ وَاللهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ ﴿الحديد:٤

4. It is He who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He knows what penetrates into the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the heaven and what ascends therein; and He is with you wherever you are. And Allah, of what you do, is Seeing.


لَّهُۥ مُلْكُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَإِلَى اللهِ تُرْجَعُ الْأُمُورُ ﴿الحديد:٥

5. His is the dominion of the heavens and earth. And to Allah are returned [all] matters.


يُولِجُ الَّيْلَ فِى النَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ النَّهَارَ فِى الَّيْلِ ۚ وَهُوَ عَلِيمٌۢ بِذَاتِ الصُّدُورِ ﴿الحديد:٦

6. He causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night, and he is Knowing of that within the breasts.


ءَامِنُوا۟ بِاللهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَأَنفِقُوا۟ مِمَّا جَعَلَكُم مُّسْتَخْلَفِينَ فِيهِ ۖ فَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ مِنكُمْ وَأَنفَقُوا۟ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ كَبِيرٌ ﴿الحديد:٧

7. Believe in Allah and His Messenger and spend out of that in which He has made you successors. For those who have believed among you and spent, there will be a great reward.


وَمَا لَكُمْ لَا تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللهِ ۙ وَالرَّسُولُ يَدْعُوكُمْ لِتُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِرَبِّكُمْ وَقَدْ أَخَذَ مِيثٰقَكُمْ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ ﴿الحديد:٨

8. And why do you not believe in Allah while the Messenger invites you to believe in your Lord and He has taken your covenant, if you should [truly] be believers?


هُوَ الَّذِى يُنَزِّلُ عَلَىٰ عَبْدِهِۦٓ ءَايٰتٍۭ بَيِّنٰتٍ لِّيُخْرِجَكُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمٰتِ إِلَى النُّورِ ۚ وَإِنَّ اللهَ بِكُمْ لَرَءُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴿الحديد:٩

9. It is He who sends down upon His Servant [Muhammad] verses of clear evidence that He may bring you out from darknesses into the light. And indeed, Allah is to you Kind and Merciful.


وَمَا لَكُمْ أَلَّا تُنفِقُوا۟ فِى سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَلِلّٰهِ مِيرٰثُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ لَا يَسْتَوِى مِنكُم مَّنْ أَنفَقَ مِن قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقٰتَلَ ۚ أُو۟لٰٓئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أَنفَقُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدُ وَقٰتَلُوا۟ ۚ وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللهُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ وَاللهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ ﴿الحديد:١۰

10. And why do you not spend in the cause of Allah while to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal among you are those who spent before the conquest [of Makkah] and fought [and those who did so after it]. Those are greater in degree than they who spent afterwards and fought. But to all Allah has promised the best [reward]. And Allah, with what you do, is Acquainted.


مَّن ذَا الَّذِى يُقْرِضُ اللهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضٰعِفَهُۥ لَهُۥ وَلَهُۥٓ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ ﴿الحديد:١١

11. Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?


يَوْمَ تَرَى تَرَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنٰتِ يَسْعَىٰ نُورُهُم بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمٰنِهِم بُشْرَىٰكُمُ الْيَوْمَ جَنّٰتٌ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهٰرُ خٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ ذٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ ﴿الحديد:١٢

12. On the Day you see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding before them and on their right, [it will be said], “Your good tidings today are [of] gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein you will abide eternally.” That is what is the great attainment.


يَوْمَ يَقُولُ الْمُنٰفِقُونَ وَالْمُنٰفِقٰتُ لِلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ انظُرُونَا نَقْتَبِسْ مِن نُّورِكُمْ قِيلَ ارْجِعُوا۟ وَرَآءَكُمْ فَالْتَمِسُوا۟ نُورًا فَضُرِبَ بَيْنَهُم بِسُورٍ لَّهُۥ بَابٌۢ بَاطِنُهُۥ فِيهِ الرَّحْمَةُ وَظٰهِرُهُۥ مِن قِبَلِهِ الْعَذَابُ ﴿الحديد:١٣

13. On the [same] Day the hypocrite men and hypocrite women will say to those who believed, “Wait for us that we may acquire some of your light.” It will be said, “Go back behind you and seek light.” And a wall will be placed between them with a door, its interior containing mercy, but on the outside of it is torment.


يُنَادُونَهُمْ أَلَمْ نَكُن مَّعَكُمْ ۖ قَالُوا۟ بَلَىٰ وَلٰكِنَّكُمْ فَتَنتُمْ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَتَرَبَّصْتُمْ وَارْتَبْتُمْ وَغَرَّتْكُمُ الْأَمَانِىُّ حَتَّىٰ جَآءَ أَمْرُ اللهِ وَغَرَّكُم بِاللهِ الْغَرُورُ ﴿الحديد:١٤

14. The hypocrites will call to the believers, “Were we not with you?” They will say, “Yes, but you afflicted yourselves and awaited [misfortune for us] and doubted, and wishful thinking deluded you until there came the command of Allah . And the Deceiver deceived you concerning Allah .


فَالْيَوْمَ لَا يُؤْخَذُ مِنكُمْ فِدْيَةٌ وَلَا مِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ ۚ مَأْوَىٰكُمُ النَّارُ ۖ هِىَ مَوْلَىٰكُمْ ۖ وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ ﴿الحديد:١٥

15. So today no ransom will be taken from you or from those who disbelieved. Your refuge is the Fire. It is most worthy of you, and wretched is the destination.


أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَن تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا يَكُونُوا۟ كَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ الْكِتٰبَ مِن قَبْلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْأَمَدُ فَقَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فٰسِقُونَ ﴿الحديد:١٦

16. Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient.


اعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ اللهَ يُحْىِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا ۚ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا لَكُمُ الْاٰيٰتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ ﴿الحديد:١٧

17. Know that Allah gives life to the earth after its lifelessness. We have made clear to you the signs; perhaps you will understand.


إِنَّ الْمُصَّدِّقِينَ وَالْمُصَّدِّقٰتِ وَأَقْرَضُوا۟ اللهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا يُضٰعَفُ لَهُمْ وَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ ﴿الحديد:١٨

18. Indeed, the men who practice charity and the women who practice charity and [they who] have loaned Allah a goodly loan – it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a noble reward.


وَالَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ بِاللهِ وَرُسُلِهِۦٓ أُو۟لٰٓئِكَ هُمُ الصِّدِّيقُونَ ۖ وَالشُّهَدَآءُ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ لَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ وَنُورُهُمْ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ وَكَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايٰتِنَآ أُو۟لٰٓئِكَ أَصْحٰبُ الْجَحِيمِ ﴿الحديد:١٩

19. And those who have believed in Allah and His messengers – those are [in the ranks of] the supporters of truth and the martyrs, with their Lord. For them is their reward and their light. But those who have disbelieved and denied Our verses – those are the companions of Hellfire.


اعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّمَا الْحَيَوٰةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌۢ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِى الْأَمْوٰلِ وَالْأَوْلٰدِ ۖ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُۥ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَىٰهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطٰمًا ۖ وَفِى الْاٰخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللهِ وَرِضْوٰنٌ ۚ وَمَا الْحَيَوٰةُ الدُّنْيَآ إِلَّا مَتٰعُ الْغُرُورِ ﴿الحديد:٢۰

20. Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.


سَابِقُوٓا۟ إِلَىٰ مَغْفِرَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا كَعَرْضِ السَّمَآءِ وَالْأَرْضِ أُعِدَّتْ لِلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ بِاللهِ وَرُسُلِهِۦ ۚ ذٰلِكَ فَضْلُ اللهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَآءُ ۚ وَاللهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴿الحديد:٢١

21. Race toward forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and earth, prepared for those who believed in Allah and His messengers. That is the bounty of Allah which He gives to whom He wills, and Allah is the possessor of great bounty.


مَآ أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ فِى الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِىٓ أَنفُسِكُمْ إِلَّا فِى كِتٰبٍ مِّن قَبْلِ أَن نَّبْرَأَهَآ ۚ إِنَّ ذٰلِكَ عَلَى اللهِ يَسِيرٌ ﴿الحديد:٢٢

22. No disaster strikes upon the earth or among yourselves except that it is in a register before We bring it into being – indeed that, for Allah, is easy –


لِّكَيْلَا تَأْسَوْا۟ عَلَىٰ مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا تَفْرَحُوا۟ بِمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمْ ۗ وَاللهُ لَا يُحِبُّ كُلَّ مُخْتَالٍ فَخُورٍ ﴿الحديد:٢٣

23. In order that you not despair over what has eluded you and not exult [in pride] over what He has given you. And Allah does not like everyone self-deluded and boastful –


الَّذِينَ يَبْخَلُونَ وَيَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبُخْلِ ۗ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ فَإِنَّ اللهَ هُوَ الْغَنِىُّ الْحَمِيدُ ﴿الحديد:٢٤

24. [Those] who are stingy and enjoin upon people stinginess. And whoever turns away – then indeed, Allah is the Free of need, the Praiseworthy.


لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنٰتِ وَأَنزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتٰبَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ ۖ وَأَنزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنٰفِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُۥ وَرُسُلَهُۥ بِالْغَيْبِ ۚ إِنَّ اللهَ قَوِىٌّ عَزِيزٌ ﴿الحديد:٢٥

25. We have already sent Our messengers with clear evidences and sent down with them the Scripture and the balance that the people may maintain [their affairs] in justice. And We sent down iron, wherein is great military might and benefits for the people, and so that Allah may make evident those who support Him and His messengers unseen. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and Exalted in Might.


وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا وَإِبْرٰهِيمَ وَجَعَلْنَا فِى ذُرِّيَّتِهِمَا النُّبُوَّةَ وَالْكِتٰبَ ۖ فَمِنْهُم مُّهْتَدٍ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فٰسِقُونَ ﴿الحديد:٢٦

26. And We have already sent Noah and Abraham and placed in their descendants prophethood and scripture; and among them is he who is guided, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.


ثُمَّ قَفَّيْنَا عَلَىٰٓ ءَاثٰرِهِم بِرُسُلِنَا وَقَفَّيْنَا بِعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ وَءَاتَيْنٰهُ الْإِنجِيلَ وَجَعَلْنَا فِى قُلُوبِ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُ رَأْفَةً وَرَحْمَةً وَرَهْبَانِيَّةً ابْتَدَعُوهَا مَا كَتَبْنٰهَا عَلَيْهِمْ إِلَّا ابْتِغَآءَ رِضْوٰنِ اللهِ فَمَا رَعَوْهَا حَقَّ رِعَايَتِهَا ۖ فَـَٔاتَيْنَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ مِنْهُمْ أَجْرَهُمْ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فٰسِقُونَ ﴿الحديد:٢٧

27. Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah . But they did not observe it with due observance. So We gave the ones who believed among them their reward, but many of them are defiantly disobedient.


يٰٓأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ اتَّقُوا۟ اللهَ وَءَامِنُوا۟ بِرَسُولِهِۦ يُؤْتِكُمْ كِفْلَيْنِ مِن رَّحْمَتِهِۦ وَيَجْعَل لَّكُمْ نُورًا تَمْشُونَ بِهِۦ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ۚ وَاللهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴿الحديد:٢٨

28. O you who have believed, fear Allah and believe in His Messenger; He will [then] give you a double portion of His mercy and make for you a light by which you will walk and forgive you; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.


لِّئَلَّا يَعْلَمَ أَهْلُ الْكِتٰبِ أَلَّا يَقْدِرُونَ عَلَىٰ شَىْءٍ مِّن فَضْلِ اللهِ ۙ وَأَنَّ الْفَضْلَ بِيَدِ اللهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَآءُ ۚ وَاللهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ ﴿الحديد:٢٩

29. [This is] so that the People of the Scripture may know that they are not able [to obtain] anything from the bounty of Allah and that [all] bounty is in the hand of Allah ; He gives it to whom He wills. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty.
