Quran

The Quranic Guide is two phased. One is the translation of Quranic verses. The other seeks to reflect the inpirational effect which the Holy Quraan has had on eminent personalities in our community. While aware of the maraculous nature of the entire Quraan, we want to share the special encounters with individual verses which have proven decisive in the lives of these authors. We hope thereby to instill a greater love for the Book in our readership, if only being moved by  a single verse therein.

Surah 92. The Night

E-mail Print PDF

1. By the Night as it conceals (the light);

2. By the Day as it appears in glory;

3. By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;-

4. Verily, (the ends) ye strive for are diverse.

5. So he who gives (in charity) and fears ((Allah)),

6. And (in all sincerity) testifies to the best,-

7. We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Bliss.

8. But he who is a greedy miser and thinks himself self-sufficient,

9. And gives the lie to the best,-

10. We will indeed make smooth for him the path to Misery;

11. Nor will his wealth profit him when he falls headlong (into the Pit).

12. Verily We take upon Ourselves to guide,

13. And verily unto Us (belong) the End and the Beginning.

14. Therefore do I warn you of a Fire blazing fiercely;

15. None shall reach it but those most unfortunate ones

16. Who give the lie to Truth and turn their backs.

17. But those most devoted to Allah shall be removed far from it,-

18. Those who spend their wealth for increase in self-purification,

19. And have in their minds no favour from anyone for which a reward is expected in return,

20. But only the desire to seek for the Countenance of their Lord Most High;

21. And soon will they attain (complete) satisfaction.

Surah 90. The City, This Countryside

E-mail Print PDF

1. I do call to witness this City;-

2. And thou art a freeman of this City;-

3. And (the mystic ties of) parent and child;-

4. Verily We have created man into toil and struggle.

5. Thinketh he, that none hath power over him?

6. He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance!

7. Thinketh he that none beholdeth him?

8. Have We not made for him a pair of eyes?-

9. And a tongue, and a pair of lips?-

10. And shown him the two highways?

11. But he hath made no haste on the path that is steep.

12. And what will explain to thee the path that is steep?-

13. (It is:) freeing the bondman;

14. Or the giving of food in a day of privation

15. To the orphan with claims of relationship,

16. Or to the indigent (down) in the dust.

17. Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion.

18. Such are the Companions of the Right Hand.

19. But those who reject Our Signs, they are the (unhappy) Companions of the Left Hand.

20. On them will be Fire vaulted over (all round).

Surah 89. The Dawn, Daybreak

E-mail Print PDF

1. By the break of Day

2. By the Nights twice five;

3. By the even and odd (contrasted);

4. And by the Night when it passeth away;-

5. Is there (not) in these an adjuration (or evidence) for those who understand?

6. Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the 'Ad (people),-

7. Of the (city of) Iram, with lofty pillars,

8. The like of which were not produced in (all) the land?

9. And with the Thamud (people), who cut out (huge) rocks in the valley?-

10. And with Pharaoh, lord of stakes?

11. (All) these transgressed beyond bounds in the lands,

12. And heaped therein mischief (on mischief).

13. Therefore did thy Lord pour on them a scourge of diverse chastisements:

14. For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower.

15. Now, as for man, when his Lord trieth him, giving him honour and gifts, then saith he, (puffed up), "My Lord hath honoured me."

16. But when He trieth him, restricting his subsistence for him, then saith he (in despair), "My Lord hath humiliated me!"

17. Nay, nay! but ye honour not the orphans!

18. Nor do ye encourage one another to feed the poor!-

19. And ye devour inheritance - all with greed,

20. And ye love wealth with inordinate love!

21. Nay! When the earth is pounded to powder,

22. And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,

23. And Hell, that Day, is brought (face to face),- on that Day will man remember, but how will that remembrance profit him?

24. He will say: "Ah! Would that I had sent forth (good deeds) for (this) my (Future) Life!"

25. For, that Day, His Chastisement will be such as none (else) can inflict,

26. And His bonds will be such as none (other) can bind.

27. (To the righteous soul will be said:) "O (thou) soul, in (complete) rest and satisfaction!

28. "Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him!

29. "Enter thou, then, among My devotees!

30. "Yea, enter thou My Heaven!

Surah 88. The Overwhelming, The Pall

E-mail Print PDF

1. Has the story reached thee of the overwhelming (Event)?

2. Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated,

3. Labouring (hard), weary,-

4. The while they enter the Blazing Fire,-

5. The while they are given, to drink, of a boiling hot spring,

6. No food will there be for them but a bitter Dhari'

7. Which will neither nourish nor satisfy hunger.

8. (Other) faces that Day will be joyful,

9. Pleased with their striving,-

10. In a Garden on high,

11. Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:

12. Therein will be a bubbling spring:

13. Therein will be Thrones (of dignity), raised on high,

14. Goblets placed (ready),

15. And cushions set in rows,

16. And rich carpets (all) spread out.

17. Do they not look at the Camels, how they are made?-

18. And at the Sky, how it is raised high?-

19. And at the Mountains, how they are fixed firm?-

20. And at the Earth, how it is spread out?

21. Therefore do thou give admonition, for thou art one to admonish.

22. Thou art not one to manage (men's) affairs.

23. But if any turn away and reject Allah,-

24. Allah will punish him with a mighty Punishment,

25. For to Us will be their return;

26. Then it will be for Us to call them to account.

Surah 86. The Morning Star, The Nightcomer

E-mail Print PDF

1. By the Sky and the Night-Visitant (therein);-

2. And what will explain to thee what the Night-Visitant is?-

3. (It is) the Star of piercing brightness;-

4. There is no soul but has a protector over it.

5. Now let man but think from what he is created!

6. He is created from a drop emitted-

7. Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:

8. Surely ((Allah)) is able to bring him back (to life)!

9. The Day that (all) things secret will be tested,

10. (Man) will have no power, and no helper.

11. By the Firmament which returns (in its round),

12. And by the Earth which opens out (for the gushing of springs or the sprouting of vegetation),-

13. Behold this is the Word that distinguishes (Good from Evil):

14. It is not a thing for amusement.

15. As for them, they are but plotting a scheme,

16. And I am planning a scheme.

17. Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: Give respite to them gently (for awhile).
