Quran English Translation |Surah 73-77

Sura 73:  Cloaked (Al-Muzzammil)

Number of verses in sura: 20

Order of revelation: 3

[73:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[73:1]  O you cloaked one.

[73:2]  Meditate during the night, except rarely.

[73:3]  Half of it, or a little less.

[73:4]  Or a little more. And read the Quran from cover to cover.

[73:5]  We will give you a heavy message.

[73:6]  The meditation at night is more effective, and more righteous.

[73:7]  You have a lot of time during the day for other matters.

[73:8]  You shall commemorate the name of your Lord, to come ever closer and closer to Him.

[73:9]  Lord of the east and the west; there is no other god beside Him. You should choose Him as your advocate.

[73:10]  And remain steadfast in the face of their utterances, and disregard them in a nice manner.

[73:11]  And let Me deal with the rejectors, who have been generously blessed; just give them a little time.

[73:12]  We have severe punishments, and Hell.

[73:13]  Food that can hardly be swallowed, and painful retribution.

[73:14]  The day will come when the earth and the mountains will quake, and the mountains will turn into a weightless pile.

[73:15]  We have sent to you a messenger, just as we sent to Pharaoh a messenger.

[73:16]  Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger and, consequently, we punished him severely.

[73:17]  If you disbelieve, how can you evade a day so terrible that it makes the infants gray-haired?

[73:18]  The heaven will shatter therefrom. His promise is true.

[73:19]  This is a reminder; whoever wills, let him choose the path to his Lord.

[73:20]  Your Lord knows that you meditate during two-thirds of the night, or half of it, or one-third of it, and so do some of those who believed with you. GOD has designed the night and the day, and He knows that you cannot always do this. He has pardoned you. Instead, you shall read what you can of the Quran. He knows that some of you may be ill, others may be traveling in pursuit of GOD‘s provisions, and others may be striving in the cause of GOD. You shall read what you can of it, and observe the contact prayers (Salat), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and lend GOD a loan of righteousness. Whatever good you send ahead on behalf of your souls, you will find it at GOD far better and generously rewarded. And implore GOD for forgiveness. GOD is Forgiver, Most Merciful.


Sura 74:  The Hidden Secret (Al-Muddath-thir)

Number of verses in sura: 56

Order of revelation: 4

[74:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[74:1]  O you hidden secret.

[74:2]  Come out and warn.

[74:3]  Extol your Lord.

[74:4]  Purify your garment.

[74:5]  Forsake what is wrong.

[74:6]  Be content with your lot.

[74:7]  Steadfastly commemorate your Lord.

[74:8]  Then, when the horn is blown.

[74:9]  That will be a difficult day.

[74:10]  For the disbelievers, not easy.

[74:11]  Let Me deal with one I created as an individual.

[74:12]  I provided him with lots of money.

[74:13]  And children to behold.

[74:14]  I made everything easy for him.

[74:15]  Yet, he is greedy for more.

[74:16]  He stubbornly refused to accept these proofs.

[74:17]  I will increasingly punish him.

[74:18]  For he reflected, then decided.

[74:19]  Miserable is what he decided.

[74:20]  Miserable indeed is what he decided.

[74:21]  He looked.

[74:22]  He frowned and whined.

[74:23]  Then he turned away arrogantly.

[74:24]  He said, “This is but clever magic!

[74:25]  “This is human made.”

[74:26]  I will commit him to retribution.

[74:27]  What retribution!

[74:28]  Thorough and comprehensive.

[74:29]  Obvious to all the people.

[74:30]  Over it is nineteen.

[74:31]  We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, “What did GOD mean by this allegory?” GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.

[74:32]  Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon.

[74:33]  And the night as it passes.

[74:34]  And the morning as it shines.

[74:35]  This is one of the great miracles.

[74:36]  A warning to the human race.

[74:37]  For those among you who wish to advance, or regress.

[74:38]  Every soul is trapped by its sins.

[74:39]  Except for those on the right.

[74:40]  While in Paradise, they will ask.

[74:41]  About the guilty.

[74:42]  “What brought you to this retribution?”

[74:43]  They will say, “We did not observe the contact prayers (Salat).

[74:44]  “We did not feed the poor.

[74:45]  “We blundered with the blunderers.

[74:46]  “We disbelieved in the Day of Judgment.

[74:47]  “Until certainty came to us now.”

[74:48]  The intercession of the intercessors will never help them.

[74:49]  Why are they so averse to this reminder?

[74:50]  Running like zebras.

[74:51]  Who are fleeing from the lion!

[74:52]  Does each one of them want to receive the scripture personally?

[74:53]  Indeed, they do not fear the Hereafter.

[74:54]  Indeed, this is a reminder.

[74:55]  For those who wish to take heed.

[74:56]  They cannot take heed against GOD‘s will. He is the source of righteousness; He is the source of forgiveness.


Sura 75:  Resurrection (Al-Qeyaamah)

Number of verses in sura: 40

Order of revelation: 31

[75:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[75:1]  I swear by the Day of Resurrection.

[75:2]  And I swear by the blaming soul.

[75:3]  Does the human being think that we will not reconstruct his bones?

[75:4]  Yes indeed; we are able to reconstruct his finger tip.

[75:5]  But the human being tends to believe only what he sees in front of him.

[75:6]  He doubts the Day of Resurrection!

[75:7]  Once the vision is sharpened.

[75:8]  And the moon is eclipsed.

[75:9]  And the sun and the moon crash into one another.

[75:10]  The human being will say on that day, “Where is the escape?”

[75:11]  Absolutely, there is no escape.

[75:12]  To your Lord, on that day, is the final destiny.

[75:13]  The human being will be informed, on that day, of everything he did to advance himself, and everything he did to regress himself.

[75:14]  The human being will be his own judge.

[75:15]  No excuses will be accepted.

[75:16]  Do not move your tongue to hasten it.

[75:17]  It is we who will collect it into Quran.

[75:18]  Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran.

[75:19]  Then it is we who will explain it.

[75:20]  Indeed, you love this fleeting life.

[75:21]  While disregarding the Hereafter.

[75:22]  Some faces, on that day, will be happy.

[75:23]  Looking at their Lord.

[75:24]  Other faces will be, on that day, miserable.

[75:25]  Expecting the worst.

[75:26]  Indeed, when (the soul) reaches the throat.

[75:27]  And it is ordered: “Let go!”

[75:28]  He knows it is the end.

[75:29]  Each leg will lay motionless next to the other leg.

[75:30]  To your Lord, on that day, is the summoning.

[75:31]  For he observed neither the charity, nor the contact prayers (Salat).

[75:32]  But he disbelieved and turned away.

[75:33]  With his family, he acted arrogantly.

[75:34]  You have deserved this.

[75:35]  Indeed, you have deserved this.

[75:36]  Does the human being think that he will go to nothing?

[75:37]  Was he not a drop of ejected semen?

[75:38]  Then He created an embryo out of it!

[75:39]  He made it into male or female!

[75:40]  Is He then unable to revive the dead?


Sura 76:  The Human (Al-Insaan)

Number of verses in sura: 31

Order of revelation: 98

[76:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[76:1]  Is it not a fact that there was a time when the human being was nothing to be mentioned?

[76:2]  We created the human from a liquid mixture, from two parents, in order to test him. Thus, we made him a hearer and a seer.

[76:3]  We showed him the two paths, then he is either appreciative, or unappreciative.

[76:4]  We prepared for the disbelievers chains, shackles, and a blazing Hell.

[76:5]  As for the virtuous, they will drink from cups spiced with nectar.

[76:6]  A spring that is reserved for GOD‘s servants; it will gush out as they will.

[76:7]  They fulfill their pledges, and reverence a day that is extremely difficult.

[76:8]  They donate their favorite food to the poor, the orphan, and the captive.

[76:9]  “We feed you for the sake of GOD; we expect no reward from you, nor thanks.

[76:10]  “We fear from our Lord a day that is full of misery and trouble.”

[76:11]  Consequently, GOD protects them from the evils of that day, and rewards them with joy and contentment.

[76:12]  He rewards them for their steadfastness with Paradise, and silk.

[76:13]  They relax therein on luxurious furnishings. They suffer neither the heat of the sun, nor any cold.

[76:14]  The shade covers them therein, and the fruits are brought within reach.

[76:15]  They are served drinks in silver containers and cups that are translucent.

[76:16]  Translucent cups, though made of silver; they rightly deserved all this.

[76:17]  They enjoy drinks of delicious flavors.

[76:18]  From a spring therein known as “Salsabeel.”

[76:19]  Serving them will be immortal servants. When you see them, they will look like scattered pearls.

[76:20]  Wherever you look, you will see bliss, and a wonderful dominion.

[76:21]  On them will be clothes of green velvet, satin, and silver ornaments. Their Lord will provide them with pure drinks.

[76:22]  This is the reward that awaits you, for your efforts have been appreciated.

[76:23]  We have revealed to you this Quran; a special revelation from us.

[76:24]  You shall steadfastly carry out your Lord’s commandments, and do not obey any sinful disbeliever among them.

[76:25]  And commemorate the name of your Lord day and night.

[76:26]  During the night, fall prostrate before Him, and glorify Him many a long night.

[76:27]  These people are preoccupied with this fleeting life, while disregarding – just ahead of them – a heavy day.

[76:28]  We created them, and established them, and, whenever we will, we can substitute others in their place.

[76:29]  This is a reminder: whoever wills shall choose the path to his Lord.

[76:30]  Whatever you will is in accordance with GOD‘s will.  GOD is Omniscient, Wise.

[76:31]  He admits whomever He wills into His mercy. As for the transgressors, He has prepared for them a painful retribution.


Sura 77:  Dispatched (Al-Mursalaat)

Number of verses in sura: 50

Order of revelation: 33

[77:0]  In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[77:1]  (Angels) dispatched in succession.

[77:2]  To drive the wind.

[77:3]  Stir up clouds.

[77:4]  Distribute the provisions.

[77:5]  Deliver messages.

[77:6]  Good news, as well as warnings.

[77:7]  What is promised will come to pass.

[77:8]  Thus, when the stars are put out.

[77:9]  The sky is opened up.

[77:10]  The mountains are blown up.

[77:11]  The messengers are summoned.

[77:12]  That is the appointed day.

[77:13]  The Day of Decision.

[77:14]  What a Day of Decision!

[77:15]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:16]  Did we not annihilate the earlier generations?

[77:17]  Then we made others follow them?

[77:18]  This is what we do to the criminals.

[77:19]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:20]  Did we not create you from a lowly liquid?

[77:21]  Then we placed it in a well-protected repository.

[77:22]  For a specific period.

[77:23]  We measured it precisely. We are the best designers.

[77:24]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:25]  Did we not make the earth an abode?

[77:26]  For the living and the dead?

[77:27]  We placed on it high mountains, and provided you with fresh water to drink.

[77:28]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:29]  Go to what you used to disbelieve in.

[77:30]  Go to a shade of three different densities.

[77:31]  Yet, it provides neither coolness, nor protection from the heat.

[77:32]  It throws sparks as big as mansions.

[77:33]  As yellow as the color of camels.

[77:34]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:35]  That is the day they do not speak.

[77:36]  Nor are they given permission to apologize.

[77:37]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:38]  This is the Day of Decision. We have summoned you and the previous generations.

[77:39]  If you have any schemes, go ahead and scheme.

[77:40]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:41]  The righteous will enjoy shade and springs.

[77:42]  And fruits that they desire.

[77:43]  Eat and drink happily in return for your works.

[77:44]  We thus reward the virtuous.

[77:45]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:46]  Eat and enjoy temporarily; you are guilty.

[77:47]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:48]  When they are told, “Bow down,” they do not bow down.

[77:49]  Woe on that day to the rejectors.

[77:50]  Which Hadith, other than this, do they uphold?
