You are here: Guides 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 85. The Mansions Of The Stars, Constellations

E-mail Print PDF

1. By the sky, (displaying) the Zodiacal Signs;

2. By the promised Day (of Judgment);

3. By one that witnesses, and the subject of the witness;-

4. Woe to the makers of the pit (of fire),

5. Fire supplied (abundantly) with fuel:

6. Behold! they sat over against the (fire),

7. And they witnessed (all) that they were doing against the Believers.

8. And they ill-treated them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, Exalted in Power, Worthy of all Praise!-

9. Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth! And Allah is Witness to all things.

10. Those who persecute (or draw into temptation) the Believers, men and women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the Penalty of Hell: They will have the Penalty of the Burning Fire.

11. For those who believe and do righteous deeds, will be Gardens; beneath which rivers flow: That is the great Salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires),

12. Truly strong is the Grip (and Power) of thy Lord.

13. It is He Who creates from the very beginning, and He can restore (life).

14. And He is the Oft-Forgiving, Full of Loving-Kindness,

15. Lord of the Throne of Glory,

16. Doer (without let) of all that He intends.

17. Has the story reached thee, of the forces-

18. Of Pharaoh and the Thamud?

19. And yet the Unbelievers (persist) in rejecting (the Truth)!

20. But Allah doth encompass them from behind!

21. Nay, this is a Glorious Qur'an,

22. (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved!

Surah 84. The Sundering, Splitting Open

E-mail Print PDF

1. When the sky is rent asunder,

2. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord, and it must needs (do so);-

3. And when the earth is flattened out,

4. And casts forth what is within it and becomes (clean) empty,

5. And hearkens to (the Command of) its Lord,- and it must needs (do so);- (then will come Home the full reality).

6. O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.

7. Then he who is given his Record in his right hand,

8. Soon will his account be taken by an easy reckoning,

9. And he will turn to his people, rejoicing!

10. But he who is given his Record behind his back,-

11. Soon will he cry for perdition,

12. And he will enter a Blazing Fire.

13. Truly, did he go about among his people, rejoicing!

14. Truly, did he think that he would not have to return (to Us)!

15. Nay, nay! for his Lord was (ever) watchful of him!

16. So I do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset;

17. The Night and its Homing;

18. And the Moon in her fullness:

19. Ye shall surely travel from stage to stage.

20. What then is the matter with them, that they believe not?-

21. And when the Qur'an is read to them, they fall not prostrate,

22. But on the contrary the Unbelievers reject (it).

23. But Allah has full knowledge of what they secrete (in their breasts)

24. So announce to them a Penalty Grievous,

25. Except to those who believe and work righteous deeds: For them is a Reward that will never fail.

Surah 83. Defrauding, The Cheats, Cheating

E-mail Print PDF

1. Woe to those that deal in fraud,-

2. Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, exact full measure,

3. But when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due.

4. Do they not think that they will be called to account?-

5. On a Mighty Day,

6. A Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of the Worlds?

7. Nay! Surely the record of the wicked is (preserved) in Sijjin.

8. And what will explain to thee what Sijjin is?

9. (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed.

10. Woe, that Day, to those that deny-

11. Those that deny the Day of Judgment.

12. And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds the Sinner!

13. When Our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, "Tales of the ancients!"

14. By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the (ill) which they do!

15. Verily, from (the Light of) their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled.

16. Further, they will enter the Fire of Hell.

17. Further, it will be said to them: "This is the (reality) which ye rejected as false!

18. Nay, verily the record of the Righteous is (preserved) in 'Illiyin.

19. And what will explain to thee what 'Illiyun is?

20. (There is) a Register (fully) inscribed,

21. To which bear witness those Nearest (to Allah..

22. Truly the Righteous will be in Bliss:

23. On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):

24. Thou wilt recognise in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.

25. Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:

26. The seal thereof will be Musk: And for this let those aspire, who have aspirations:

27. With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:

28. A spring, from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.

29. Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed,

30. And whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other (in mockery);

31. And when they returned to their own people, they would return jesting;

32. And whenever they saw them, they would say, "Behold! These are the people truly astray!"

33. But they had not been sent as keepers over them!

34. But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers:

35. On Thrones (of Dignity) they will command (a sight) (of all things).

36. Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?

Surah 82. The Cleaving, Bursting Apart

E-mail Print PDF

1. When the Sky is cleft asunder;

2. When the Stars are scattered;

3. When the Oceans are suffered to burst forth;

4. And when the Graves are turned upside down;-

5. (Then) shall each soul know what it hath sent forward and (what it hath) kept back.

6. O man! What has seduced thee from thy Lord Most Beneficent?-

7. Him Who created thee. Fashioned thee in due proportion, and gave thee a just bias;

8. In whatever Form He wills, does He put thee together.

9. Day! nit ye do reject Right and Judgment!

10. But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,-

11. Kind and honourable,- Writing down (your deeds):

12. They know (and understand) all that ye do.

13. As for the Righteous, they will be in bliss;

14. And the Wicked - they will be in the Fire,

15. Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment,

16. And they will not be able to keep away therefrom.

17. And what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?

18. Again, what will explain to thee what the Day of Judgment is?

19. (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) aught for another: For the command, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.

Surah 81. The Overthrowing, Extinguished! Wrapping Things Up

E-mail Print PDF

1. When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up;

2. When the stars fall, losing their lustre;

3. When the mountains vanish (like a mirage);

4. When the she-camels, ten months with young, are left untended;

5. When the wild beasts are herded together (in the human habitations);

6. When the oceans boil over with a swell;

7. When the souls are sorted out, (being joined, like with like);

8. When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -

9. For what crime she was killed;

10. When the scrolls are laid open;

11. When the world on High is unveiled;

12. When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat;

13. And when the Garden is brought near;-

14. (Then) shall each soul know what it has put forward.

15. So verily I call to witness the planets - that recede,

16. Go straight, or hide;

17. And the Night as it dissipates;

18. And the Dawn as it breathes away the darkness;-

19. Verily this is the word of a most honourable Messenger,

20. Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne,

21. With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.

22. And (O people!) your companion is not one possessed;

23. And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.

24. Neither doth he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the Unseen.

25. Nor is it the word of an evil spirit accursed.

26. When whither go ye?

27. Verily this is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds:

28. (With profit) to whoever among you wills to go straight:

29. But ye shall not will except as Allah wills,- the Cherisher of the Worlds.
