Surat Şād (The Letter "Saad") - سورة ص

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Muhsin Khan
: Sad [These letters (Sad etc.) are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings]. By the Quran full of reminding.
Muhsin Khan
: Nay, those who desbelieve are in false pride and opposition.
Muhsin Khan
: How many a generation We have destroyed before them, and they cried out when there was no longer time for escape!
Muhsin Khan
: And they (Arab pagans) wonder that a warner (Prophet Muhammad SAW) has come to them from among themselves! And the disbelievers say: "This (Prophet Muhammad SAW) is a sorcerer, a liar.
Muhsin Khan
: "Has he made the aliha (gods) (all) into One Ilah (God - Allah). Verily, this is a curious thing!"
Muhsin Khan
: And the leaders among them went about (saying): "Go on, and remain constant to your aliha (gods)! Verily, This is a thing designed (against you)!
Muhsin Khan
: "We have not heard (the like) of this among the people of these later days. This is nothing but an invention!
Muhsin Khan
: "Has the Reminder been sent down to him (alone) from among us?" Nay! but they are in doubt about My Reminder (this Quran)! Nay, but they have not tasted (My) Torment!
Muhsin Khan
: Or have they the treasures of the Mercy of your Lord, the All-Mighty, the Real Bestower?
Muhsin Khan
: Or is it that the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them is theirs? If so, let them ascend up with means (to the heavens)!
Muhsin Khan
: (As they denied Allah's Message) they will be a defeated host like the confederates of the old times (who were defeated).
Muhsin Khan
: Before them (were many who) belied Messengers, the people of Nuh (Noah); and 'Ad; and Fir'aun (Pharaoh) the man of stakes (with which he used to punish the people),
Muhsin Khan
: And Thamud, and the people of Lout (Lot), and the dwellers of the wood; such were the confederates.
Muhsin Khan
: Not one of them but belied the Messengers, therefore My Torment was justified,
Muhsin Khan
: And these only wait for a single Saihah [shout (i.e. the blowing of the Trumpet by the angel Israfil Sarafil)] there will be no pause or ending thereto [till everything will perish except Allah (the only God full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour)].
Muhsin Khan
: They say: "Our Lord! Hasten to us Qittana (i.e. our Record of good and bad deeds so that we see it) before the Day of Reckoning!"
Muhsin Khan
: Be patient (O Muhammad SAW) of what they say, and remember Our slave Dawud (David), endued with power. Verily, he was ever oft-returning in all matters and in repentance (toward Allah).
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, We made the mountains to glorify Our Praises with him [Dawud (David)] in the 'Ashi (i.e. after the mid-day till sunset) and Ishraq (i.e. after the sunrise till mid-day).
Muhsin Khan
: And (so did) the birds assembled: all with him [Dawud (David)] did turn (to Allah i.e. glorified His Praises).
Muhsin Khan
: We made his kingdom strong and gave him Al-Hikmah (Prophethood, etc.) and sound judgement in speech and decision.
Muhsin Khan
: And has the news of the litigants reached you? When they climbed over the wall into (his) Mihrab (a praying place or a private room,).
Muhsin Khan
: When they entered in upon Dawud (David), he was terrified of them, they said: "Fear not! (We are) two litigants, one of whom has wronged the other, therefore judge between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, and guide us to the Right Way.
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, this my brother (in religion) has ninety nine ewes, while I have (only) one ewe, and he says: "Hand it over to me, and he overpowered me in speech."
Muhsin Khan
: [Dawud (David)] said (immediately without listening to the opponent): "He has wronged you in demanding your ewe in addition to his ewes. And, verily, many partners oppress one another, except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and they are few." And Dawud (David) guessed that We have tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allah) in repentance.
Muhsin Khan
: So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise).
Muhsin Khan
: O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you as a successor on earth, so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire for it will mislead you from the Path of Allah. Verily! Those who wander astray from the Path of Allah (shall) have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.
Muhsin Khan
: And We created not the heaven and the earth and all that is between them without purpose! That is the consideration of those who disbelieve! Then woe to those who disbelieve (in Islamic Monotheism) from the Fire!
Muhsin Khan
: Shall We treat those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, as Mufsidun (those who associate partners in worship with Allah and commit crimes) on earth? Or shall We treat the Muttaqun (pious - see V.2:2), as the Fujjar (criminals, disbelievers, wicked, etc)?
Muhsin Khan
: (This is) a Book (the Quran) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember.
Muhsin Khan
: And to Dawud (David) We gave Sulaiman (Solomon). How excellent (a) slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance (to Us)!
Muhsin Khan
: When there were displayed before him, in the afternoon, well trained horses of the highest breed [for Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause)].
Muhsin Khan
: And he said: "Alas! I did love the good (these horses) instead of remembering my Lord (in my 'Asr prayer)" till the time was over, and (the sun) had hidden in the veil (of night).
Muhsin Khan
: Then he said "Bring them (horses) back to me." Then he began to pass his hand over their legs and their necks (till the end of the display).
Muhsin Khan
: And, indeed We did try Sulaiman (Solomon) and We placed on his throne Jasadan (a devil, so he lost his kingdom for a while) but he did return (to his throne and kingdom by the Grace of Allah and he did return) to Allah with obedience and in repentance.
Muhsin Khan
: He said: "My Lord! Forgive me, and bestow upon me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me: Verily, You are the Bestower."
Muhsin Khan
: So, We subjected to him the wind, it blew gently to his order whithersoever he willed,
Muhsin Khan
: And also the Shayatin (devils) from the jinns (including) every kind of builder and diver,
Muhsin Khan
: And also others bound in fetters.
Muhsin Khan
: [Saying of Allah to Sulaiman (Solomon)]: "This is Our gift, so spend you or withhold, no account will be asked."
Muhsin Khan
: And verily, he enjoyed a near access to Us, and a good final return (Paradise).
Muhsin Khan
: And remember Our slave Ayub (Job), when he invoked his Lord (saying): "Verily! Shaitan (Satan) has touched me with distress (by losing my health) and torment (by losing my wealth)!
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah said to him): "Strike the ground with your foot: This is a spring of water to wash in, cool and a (refreshing) drink."
Muhsin Khan
: And We gave him (back) his family, and along with them the like thereof, as a Mercy from Us, and a Reminder for those who understand.
Muhsin Khan
: "And take in your hand a bundle of thin grass and strike therewith (your wife), and break not your oath . Truly! We found him patient. How excellent (a) slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance (to Us)!
Muhsin Khan
: And remember Our slaves, Ibrahim (Abraham), Ishaque (Isaac), and Ya'qub (Jacob), (all) owners of strength (in worshipping Us) and (also) of religious understanding.
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, We did choose them by granting them (a good thing, i.e.) the remembrance of the home [in the Hereafter and they used to make the people remember it, and also they used to invite the people to obey Allah and to do good deeds for the Hereafter].
Muhsin Khan
: And they are with Us, verily, of the chosen and the best!
Muhsin Khan
: And remember Isma'il (Ishmael), Al-Yasa'a (Elisha), and Dhul-Kifl (Isaiah), all are among the best.
Muhsin Khan
: This is a Reminder, and verily, for the Muttaqun (pious and righteous persons - see V.2:2) is a good final return (Paradise),
Muhsin Khan
: 'Adn (Edn) Paradise (everlasting Gardens), whose doors will be open for them, [It is said (in Tafsir At-Tabari, Part 23, Page 174) that one can speak to the doors, just one tells it to open and close, and it will open or close as it is ordered].
Muhsin Khan
: Therein they will recline; therein they will call for fruits in abundance and drinks;
Muhsin Khan
: And beside them will be chaste females (virgins) restraining their glances only for their husbands, (and) of equal ages.
Muhsin Khan
: This it is what you (Al-Muttaqun - the pious) are promised for the Day of Reckoning!
Muhsin Khan
: (It will be said to them)! Verily, this is Our Provision which will never finish;
Muhsin Khan
: This is so! And for the Taghun (transgressors, disobedient to Allah and His Messenger - disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah, criminals, etc.), will be an evil final return (Fire),
Muhsin Khan
: Hell! Where they will burn, and worst (indeed) is that place to rest!
Muhsin Khan
: This is so! Then let them taste it, a boiling fluid and dirty wound discharges.
Muhsin Khan
: And other torments of similar kind, all together!
Muhsin Khan
: This is a troop entering with you (in Hell), no welcome for them! Verily, they shall burn in the Fire!
Muhsin Khan
: (The followers of the misleaders will say): "Nay, you (too)! No welcome for you! It is you (misleaders) who brought this upon us (because you misled us in the world), so evil is this place to stay in!"
Muhsin Khan
: They will say: "Our Lord! Whoever brought this upon us, add to him a double torment in the Fire!"
Muhsin Khan
: And they will say: "What is the matter with us that we see not men whom we used to count among the bad ones?"
Muhsin Khan
: Did we take them as an object of mockery, or have (our) eyes failed to perceive them?"
Muhsin Khan
: Verily, that is the very truth, the mutual dispute of the people of the Fire!
Muhsin Khan
: Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I am only a warner and there is no Ilah (God) except Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) the One, the Irresistible,
Muhsin Khan
: "The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving."
Muhsin Khan
: Say: "That (this Quran) is a great news,
Muhsin Khan
: "From which you turn away!
Muhsin Khan
: "I had no knowledge of the chiefs (angels) on high when they were disputing and discussing (about the creation of Adam).
Muhsin Khan
: "Only this has been inspired to me, that I am a plain warner."
Muhsin Khan
: (Remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Truly, I am going to create man from clay".
Muhsin Khan
: So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him."
Muhsin Khan
: So the angels prostrated themselves, all of them:
Muhsin Khan
: Except Iblis (Satan) he was proud and was one of the disbelievers.
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the high exalted?"
Muhsin Khan
: [Iblis (Satan)] said: "I am better than he, You created me from fire, and You created him from clay."
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah) said: "Then get out from here, for verily, you are outcast.
Muhsin Khan
: "And verily!, My Curse is on you till the Day of Recompense."
Muhsin Khan
: [Iblis (Satan)] said: "My Lord! Give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are resurrected."
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah) said: "Verily! You are of those allowed respite
Muhsin Khan
: "Till the Day of the time appointed."
Muhsin Khan
: [Iblis (Satan)] said: "By Your Might, then I will surely mislead them all,
Muhsin Khan
: "Except Your chosen slaves amongst them (faithful, obedient, true believers of Islamic Monotheism)."
Muhsin Khan
: (Allah) said: "The Truth is, and the Truth I say,
Muhsin Khan
: That I will fill Hell with you [Iblis (Satan)] and those of them (mankind) that follow you, together."
Muhsin Khan
: Say (O Muhammad SAW): "No wage do I ask of you for this (the Quran), nor am I one of the Mutakallifun (those who pretend and fabricate things which do not exist).
Muhsin Khan
: "It (this Quran) is only a Reminder for all the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns).
Muhsin Khan
: "And you shall certainly know the truth of it after a while.
