Surat Maryam (Mary) - سورة مريم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Muhsin Khan
: Kaf- Ha-Ya-'Ain-Sad. [These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings].
Muhsin Khan
: (This is) a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His slave Zakariya (Zachariah).
Muhsin Khan
: When he called out his Lord (Allah) a call in secret,
Muhsin Khan
: Saying: "My Lord! Indeed my bones have grown feeble, and grey hair has spread on my head, And I have never been unblest in my invocation to You, O my Lord!
Muhsin Khan
: "And Verily! I fear my relatives after me, since my wife is barren. So give me from Yourself an heir,
Muhsin Khan
: "Who shall inherit me, and inherit (also) the posterity of Ya'qub (Jacob) (inheritance of the religious knowledge and Prophethood, not the wealth, etc.). And make him, my Lord, one with whom You are Well-pleased!".
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah said) "O Zakariya (Zachariah)! Verily, We give you the glad tidings of a son, His name will be Yahya (John). We have given that name to none before (him)."
Muhsin Khan
: He said: "My Lord! How can I have a son, when my wife is barren, and I have reached the extreme old age."
Muhsin Khan
: He said: "So (it will be). Your Lord says; It is easy for Me. Certainly I have created you before, when you had been nothing!"
Muhsin Khan
: [Zakariya (Zachariah)] said: "My Lord! Appoint for me a sign." He said: "Your sign is that you shall not speak unto mankind for three nights, though having no bodily defect."
Muhsin Khan
: Then he came out to his people from Al-Mihrab (a praying place or a private room, etc.), he told them by signs to glorify Allah's Praises in the morning and in the afternoon.
Muhsin Khan
: (It was said to his son): "O Yahya (John)! Hold fast the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah)]." And We gave him wisdom while yet a child.
Muhsin Khan
: And (made him) sympathetic to men as a mercy (or a grant) from Us, and pure from sins [i.e. Yahya (John)] and he was righteous,
Muhsin Khan
: And dutiful towards his parents, and he was neither an arrogant nor disobedient (to Allah or to his parents).
Muhsin Khan
: So Peace on him the day he was born the day that he dies and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)!
Muhsin Khan
: And mention in the Book (the Quran, O Muhammad SAW , the story of) Maryam (Mary), when she withdrew in seclusion from her family to a place facing east.
Muhsin Khan
: She placed a screen (to screen herself) from them; then We sent to her Our Ruh [angel Jibrael (Gabriel)], and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects.
Muhsin Khan
: She said: "Verily! I seek refuge with the Most Beneficent (Allah) from you, if you do fear Allah."
Muhsin Khan
: (The angel) said: "I am only a Messenger from your Lord, (to announce) to you the gift of a righteous son."
Muhsin Khan
: She said: "How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste?"
Muhsin Khan
: He said: "So (it will be), your Lord said: 'That is easy for Me (Allah): And (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us (Allah), and it is a matter (already) decreed, (by Allah).”
Muhsin Khan
: So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a far place (i.e. Bethlehem valley about 4-6 miles from Jerusalem).
Muhsin Khan
: And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a date-palm. She said: "Would that I had died before this, and had been forgotten and out of sight!"
Muhsin Khan
: Then [the babe 'Iesa (Jesus) or Jibrael (Gabriel)] cried unto her from below her, saying: "Grieve not! Your Lord has provided a water stream under you;
Muhsin Khan
: "And shake the trunk of date-palm towards you, it will let fall fresh ripe-dates upon you."
Muhsin Khan
: "So eat and drink and be glad, and if you see any human being, say: 'Verily! I have vowed a fast unto the Most Beneficent (Allah) so I shall not speak to any human being this day.”
Muhsin Khan
: Then she brought him (the baby) to her people, carrying him. They said: "O Mary! Indeed you have brought a thing Fariya (an unheard mighty thing).
Muhsin Khan
: "O sister (i.e. the like) of Harun (Aaron) [not the brother of Musa (Moses), but he was another pious man at the time of Maryam (Mary)]! Your father was not a man who used to commit adultery, nor your mother was an unchaste woman."
Muhsin Khan
: Then she pointed to him. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"
Muhsin Khan
: "He ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: Verily! I am a slave of Allah, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet;"
Muhsin Khan
: "And He has made me blessed wheresoever I be, and has enjoined on me Salat (prayer), and Zakat, as long as I live."
Muhsin Khan
: "And dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant, unblest.
Muhsin Khan
: "And Salam (peace) be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive!"
Muhsin Khan
: Such is 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). (it is) a statement of truth, about which they doubt (or dispute).
Muhsin Khan
: It befits not (the Majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son [this refers to the slander of Christians against Allah, by saying that 'Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allah]. Glorified (and Exalted be He above all that they associate with Him). When He decrees a thing, He only says to it, "Be!" and it is.
Muhsin Khan
: ['Iesa (Jesus) said]: "And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). That is the Straight Path. (Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism which He did ordain for all of His Prophets)." [Tafsir At-Tabari]
Muhsin Khan
: Then the sects differed [i.e. the Christians about 'Iesa (Jesus) ], so woe unto the disbelievers [those who gave false witness by saying that 'Iesa (Jesus) is the son of Allah] from the meeting of a great Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection, when they will be thrown in the blazing Fire).
Muhsin Khan
: How clearly will they (polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) see and hear, the Day when they will appear before Us! But the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) today are in plain error.
Muhsin Khan
: And warn them (O Muhammad SAW) of the Day of grief and regrets, when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness, and they believe not.
Muhsin Khan
: Verily! We will inherit the earth and whatsoever is thereon. And to Us they all shall be returned,
Muhsin Khan
: And mention in the Book (the Quran) Ibrahim (Abraham). Verily! He was a man of truth, a Prophet.
Muhsin Khan
: When he said to his father: "O my father! Why do you worship that which hears not, sees not and cannot avail you in anything?
Muhsin Khan
: "O my father! Verily! There has come to me of knowledge that which came not unto you. So follow me. I will guide you to a Straight Path.
Muhsin Khan
: "O my father! Worship not Shaitan (Satan). Verily! Shaitan (Satan) has been a rebel against the Most Beneficent (Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: "O my father! Verily! I fear lest a torment from the Most Beneficent (Allah) overtake you, so that you become a companion of Shaitan (Satan) (in the Hell-fire)." [Tafsir Al-Qurtubi]
Muhsin Khan
: He (the father) said: "Do you reject my gods, O Ibrahim (Abraham)? If you stop not (this), I will indeed stone you. So get away from me safely before I punish you."
Muhsin Khan
: Ibrahim (Abraham) said: "Peace be on you! I will ask Forgiveness of my Lord for you. Verily! He is unto me, Ever Most Gracious.
Muhsin Khan
: "And I shall turn away from you and from those whom you invoke besides Allah. And I shall call on my Lord; and I hope that I shall not be unblest in my invocation to my Lord."
Muhsin Khan
: So when he had turned away from them and from those whom they worshipped besides Allah, We gave him Ishaque (Isaac) and Ya'qub (Jacob), and each one of them We made a Prophet.
Muhsin Khan
: And We gave them of Our Mercy (a good provision in plenty), and We granted them honour on the tongues (of all the nations, i.e everybody remembers them with a good praise).
Muhsin Khan
: And mention in the Book (this Quran) Musa (Moses). Verily! He was chosen and he was a Messenger (and) a Prophet.
Muhsin Khan
: And We called him from the right side of the Mount, and made him draw near to Us for a talk with him [Musa (Moses)].
Muhsin Khan
: And We bestowed on him his brother Harun (Aaron), (also) a Prophet, out of Our Mercy.
Muhsin Khan
: And mention in the Book (the Quran) Isma'il (Ishmael). Verily! He was true to what he promised, and he was a Messenger, (and) a Prophet.
Muhsin Khan
: And he used to enjoin on his family and his people As-Salat (the prayers) and the Zakat, and his Lord was pleased with him.
Muhsin Khan
: And mention in the Book (the Quran) Idris (Enoch).Verily! He was a man of truth, (and) a Prophet.
Muhsin Khan
: And We raised him to a high station.
Muhsin Khan
: Those were they unto whom Allah bestowed His Grace from among the Prophets, of the offspring of Adam, and of those whom We carried (in the ship) with Nuh (Noah), and of the offspring of Ibrahim (Abraham) and Israel and from among those whom We guided and chose. When the Verses of the Most Beneficent (Allah) were recited unto them, they fell down prostrating and weeping.
Muhsin Khan
: Then, there has succeeded them a posterity who have given up As-Salat (the prayers) [i.e. made their Salat (prayers) to be lost, either by not offering them or by not offering them perfectly or by not offering them in their proper fixed times, etc.] and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell.
Muhsin Khan
: Except those who repent and believe (in the Oneness of Allah and His Messenger Muhammad SAW), and work righteousness. Such will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged in aught.
Muhsin Khan
: (They will enter) 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), which the Most Beneficent (Allah) has promised to His slaves in the unseen: Verily! His Promise must come to pass.
Muhsin Khan
: They shall not hear therein (in Paradise) any Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk), but only Salam (salutations of peace). And they will have therein their sustenance, morning and afternoon. [See (V.40:55)].
Muhsin Khan
: Such is the Paradise which We shall give as an inheritance to those of Our slaves who have been Al-Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons - See V.2:2).
Muhsin Khan
: And we (angels) descend not except by the Command of your Lord (O Muhammad SAW). To Him belongs what is before us and what is behind us, and what is between those two, and your Lord is never forgetful,
Muhsin Khan
: Lord of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, so worship Him (Alone) and be constant and patient in His worship. Do you know of any who is similar to Him? (of course none is similar or coequal or comparable to Him, and He has none as partner with Him). [There is nothing like unto Him and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer].
Muhsin Khan
: And man (the disbeliever) says: "When I am dead, shall I then be raised up alive?"
Muhsin Khan
: Does not man remember that We created him before, while he was nothing?
Muhsin Khan
: So by your Lord, surely, We shall gather them together, and (also) the Shayatin (devils) (with them), then We shall bring them round Hell on their knees.
Muhsin Khan
: Then indeed We shall drag out from every sect all those who were worst in obstinate rebellion against the Most Beneficent (Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: Then, verily, We know best those who are most worthy of being burnt therein.
Muhsin Khan
: There is not one of you but will pass over it (Hell); this is with your Lord; a Decree which must be accomplished.
Muhsin Khan
: Then We shall save those who use to fear Allah and were dutiful to Him. And We shall leave the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) therein (humbled) to their knees (in Hell).
Muhsin Khan
: And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, those who disbelieve (the rich and strong among the pagans of Quraish who live a life of luxury) say to those who believe (the weak, poor companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW who have a hard life): "Which of the two groups (i.e. believers and disbelievers) is best in (point of) position and as regards station (place of council for consultation)."
Muhsin Khan
: And how many a generation (past nations) have We destroyed before them, who were better in wealth, goods and outward appearance?
Muhsin Khan
: Say (O Muhammad SAW) whoever is in error, the Most Beneficent (Allah) will extend (the rope) to him, until, when they see that which they were promised, either the torment or the Hour, they will come to know who is worst in position, and who is weaker in forces. [This is the answer for the Verse No.19:73]
Muhsin Khan
: And Allah increases in guidance those who walk aright [true believers in the Oneness of Allah who fear Allah much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden), and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]. And the righteous good deeds that last, are better with your Lord, for reward and better for resort.
Muhsin Khan
: Have you seen him who disbelieved in Our Ayat (this Quran and Muhammad SAW) and (yet) says: "I shall certainly be given wealth and children [if I will be alive (again)],"
Muhsin Khan
: Has he known the unseen or has he taken a covenant from the Most Beneficent (Allah)?
Muhsin Khan
: Nay! We shall record what he says, and We shall increase his torment (in the Hell);
Muhsin Khan
: And We shall inherit from him (at his death) all that he talks of (i.e. wealth and children which We have bestowed upon him in this world), and he shall come to Us alone.
Muhsin Khan
: And they have taken (for worship) aliha (gods) besides Allah, that they might give them honour, power and glory (and also protect them from Allah's Punishment etc.).
Muhsin Khan
: Nay, but they (the so-called gods) will deny their worship of them, and become opponents to them (on the Day of Resurrection).
Muhsin Khan
: See you not that We have sent the Shayatin (devils) against the disbelievers to push them to do evil.
Muhsin Khan
: So make no haste against them; We only count out to them a (limited) number (of the days of the life of this world and delay their term so that they may increase in evil and sins).
Muhsin Khan
: The Day We shall gather the Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2) unto the Most Beneficent (Allah), like a delegate (presented before a king for honour).
Muhsin Khan
: And We shall drive the Mujrimun (polytheists, sinners, criminals, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, etc.) to Hell, in a thirsty state (like a thirsty herd driven down to water),
Muhsin Khan
: None shall have the power of intercession, but such a one as has received permission (or promise) from the Most Beneficent (Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allah) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Iesa (Christ) ], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)]."
Muhsin Khan
: Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing.
Muhsin Khan
: Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins,
Muhsin Khan
: That they ascribe a son (or offspring or children) to the Most Beneficent (Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Most Beneficent (Allah) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children).
Muhsin Khan
: There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes unto the Most Beneficent (Allah) as a slave.
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, He knows each one of them, and has counted them a full counting.
Muhsin Khan
: And everyone of them will come to Him alone on the Day of Resurrection (without any helper, or protector or defender).
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah and in His Messenger (Muhammad SAW)] and work deeds of righteousness, the Most Beneficent (Allah) will bestow love for them (in the hearts of the believers).
Muhsin Khan
: So We have made this (the Quran) easy in your own tongue (O Muhammad SAW), only that you may give glad tidings to the Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons - See V.2:2), and warn with it the Ludda (most quarrelsome) people.
Muhsin Khan
: And how many a generation before them have We destroyed! Can you (O Muhammad SAW) find a single one of them or hear even a whisper of them?
