Asalam o Akykum, welcome to 156th part of our Discover the Holy Quran project. In this part we will read verses 32 to 62 of Surah An-Najm. Let’s begin:
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
32- Those who avoid great sins and shameful deeds, only (falling into) small faults, -verily thy Lord is ample in forgiveness. He knows you well when He brings you out of the earth, And when ye are hidden in your mothers’ wombs. Therefore justly not yourselves: He knows best who it is that guards against evil.
33- Seest thou one who turns back,
34- Gives a little, then hardens (his heart)?
35- What! Has he knowledge of the Unseen so that he can see?
36- Nay, is he not acquainted with what is in the Books of Moses-
37- And of Abraham who fulfilled his engagements?-
38- Namely, that no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another;
39- That man can have nothing but what he strives for;
40- That (the fruit of) his striving will soon come in sight:
41- Then will he be rewarded with a reward complete;
42- That to thy Lord is the final Goal;
43- That it is He Who granteth Laughter and Tears;
44- That it is He Who granteh Death and Life;
45- That He did create in pairs,- male and female,
46- From a seed when lodged (in its place);
47- That He hath promised a Second Creation (Raising of the Dead);
48- That it is He Who giveth wealth and satisfaction;
49- That He is the Lord of Sirius (the Mighty Star);
50- And that is He Who destroyed the (powerful) ancient ‘Ad (people),
51- And the Thamud nor gave them a lease of perpetual life.
52- And before them, the people of Noah, for that they were (all) most unjust and most insolent transgressors,
53- And He destroyed the Overthrown Cities (of Sodom and Gomorrah).
54- So that (ruins unknown) have covered them up.
55- Then which of the gifts of thy Lord, (O man), wilt thou dispute about?
56- This is a Warner, of the (series of) Warners of old!
57- The (Judgment) ever approaching draws nigh:
58- No (soul) but Allah can lay it bare.
59- Do ye then wonder at this recital?
60- And will ye laugh and not weep,-
61- Wasting your time in vanities?
62- But fall ye down in prostration to Allah, and adore (Him)!
May Allah Make us of those who believe and work righteousness. (Ameen)
