Sūra XLV.: Jathiya, or Bowing the Knee.

Section 4

27. Walillahi mulku alssamawati waal-ardi wayawma taqoomu alssaAAatu yawma-ithin yakhsaru almubtiloona

27. To God belongs
The dominion of the heavens
And the earth, and
The Day that the Hour
Of Judgment is established,—
That Day will the dealers
In Falsehood perish!

28. Watara kulla ommatin jathiyatan kullu ommatin tudAAa ila kitabiha alyawma tujzawna ma kuntum taAAmaloona

28. And thou wilt see
Every sect bowing the knee:
Every sect will be called
To its Record: "This Day
Shall ye be recompensed
For all that ye did!

29. Hatha kitabuna yantiqu AAalaykum bialhaqqi inna kunna nastansikhu ma kuntum taAAmaloona

29. "This Our Record speaks
About you with truth:
For We were wont
To put on record
All that ye did."

30. Faamma allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati fayudkhiluhum rabbuhum fee rahmatihi thalika huwa alfawzu almubeenu

30. Then, as to those who
Believed and did righteous
Deeds, their Lord will
Admit them to His Mercy:
That will be the Achievement's
For all to see.

31. Waamma allatheena kafaroo afalam takun ayatee tutla AAalaykum faistakbartum wakuntum qawman mujrimeena

31. But as to those who
Rejected God, (to them
Will be said): "Were not
Our Signs rehearsed to you?
But ye were arrogant,
And were a people
Given to sin!

32. Wa-itha qeela inna waAAda Allahi haqqun waalssaAAatu la rayba feeha qultum ma nadree ma alssaAAatu in nathunnu illa thannan wama nahnu bimustayqineena

32. "And when it was said
That the promise of God
Was true, and that the Hour—
There was no doubt
About its (coming), ye
Used to say, "We
Know not what is
The Hour: we only think
It is an idea, and we
Have no firm assurance."

33. Wabada lahum sayyi-atu ma AAamiloo wahaqa bihim ma kanoo bihi yastahzi-oona

33. Then will appear to them
The evil (fruits) of what
They did, and they will be
Completely encircled by that
Which they used to mock at!

34. Waqeela alyawma nansakum kama naseetum liqaa yawmikum hatha wama/wakumu alnnaru wama lakum min nasireena

34. It will also be said:
"This Day We will forget
You as ye forgot
The meeting of this Day
Of yours! And your
Abode is the Fire, and
No helpers have ye!

35. Thalikum bi-annakumu ittakhathtum ayati Allahi huzuwan wagharratkumu alhayatu alddunya faalyawma la yukhrajoona minha wala hum yustaAAtaboona

35. "This, because ye used
To take the Signs of God
In jest, and the life
Of the world deceived you:
(From) that Day, therefore,
They shall not be taken out
Thence, nor shall they be
Received into Grace.

36. Falillahi alhamdu rabbi alssamawati warabbi al-ardi rabbi alAAalameena

36. Then Praise be to God,
Lord of the heavens
And Lord of the earth,—
Lord and Cherisher
Of all the worlds!

37. Walahu alkibriyao fee alssamawati waal-ardi wahuwa alAAazeezu alhakeemu

37. To Him be Glory
Throughout the heavens
And the earth: and He
Is Exalted in Power,
Full of Wisdom!
