تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي نَزَّلَ الْفُرْقَانَ عَلَىٰ عَبْدِهِ لِيَكُونَ لِلْعَالَمِينَ نَذِيرًا ( 1 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 1
Most Blessed is He Who has revealed to His servant, the Criterion of the right and the wrong so that to the entire world it might be a warning. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 1
الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ فَقَدَّرَهُ تَقْدِيرًا ( 2 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 2
(The Sender of this Criterion is) He to Whom belongs the Kingship of the heavens and the earth. He has chosen no son, nor does He have a partner in His Kingship. He it is Who creates all things in precise design and gives them the potential to become what they are meant to be. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 2
وَاتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِ آلِهَةً لَّا يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْئًا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَ وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنفُسِهِمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ مَوْتًا وَلَا حَيَاةً وَلَا نُشُورًا ( 3 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 3
And yet, there are people who, instead of Him, choose deities and masters that create nothing and are themselves created. And they have it not within their power to avert harm or cause benefit even to themselves. They have no control over death and life, nor can they raise the dead (people and nations). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 3
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِنْ هَٰذَا إِلَّا إِفْكٌ افْتَرَاهُ وَأَعَانَهُ عَلَيْهِ قَوْمٌ آخَرُونَ ۖ فَقَدْ جَاءُوا ظُلْمًا وَزُورًا ( 4 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 4
Those who are bent on denying the Truth say, "This (Qur'an) is a lie that he has devised with the help of other people." Wrong is what they do and falsehood is what they utter. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 4
وَقَالُوا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ اكْتَتَبَهَا فَهِيَ تُمْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا ( 5 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 5
And they say, "Fables of ancient times which he has written down as they are dictated to him morning and evening." Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 5
قُلْ أَنزَلَهُ الَّذِي يَعْلَمُ السِّرَّ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا ( 6 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 6
Say, "He Who knows all the mysteries of the heavens and the earth has revealed it to me. He is Forgiving, Merciful." (May He forgive you for saying this)! Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 6

Yet they say, "What sort of Messenger is this who eats food and goes about in the market-places? Why is not an angel sent down to him to act as a Warner together with him?" Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 7
أَوْ يُلْقَىٰ إِلَيْهِ كَنزٌ أَوْ تَكُونُ لَهُ جَنَّةٌ يَأْكُلُ مِنْهَا ۚ وَقَالَ الظَّالِمُونَ إِن تَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا رَجُلًا مَّسْحُورًا ( 8 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 8
"Or why has not a treasure been bestowed on him, or why has he not a garden for enjoyment?" The wicked say, "You are but following a man bewitched!" Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 8
انظُرْ كَيْفَ ضَرَبُوا لَكَ الْأَمْثَالَ فَضَلُّوا فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ سَبِيلًا ( 9 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 9
See what sort of examples they apply to you! They have strayed far too much to find a way. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 9
تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي إِن شَاءَ جَعَلَ لَكَ خَيْرًا مِّن ذَٰلِكَ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ وَيَجْعَل لَّكَ قُصُورًا ( 10 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 10
Blessed is He Who can Will for you far better than all that, Gardens with flowing rivers and assign you beautiful palaces. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 10
بَلْ كَذَّبُوا بِالسَّاعَةِ ۖ وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِمَن كَذَّبَ بِالسَّاعَةِ سَعِيرًا ( 11 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 11
Nay, but they deny the oncoming Hour, and for those who deny the oncoming Hour, We have readied a Flame. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 11
إِذَا رَأَتْهُم مِّن مَّكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ سَمِعُوا لَهَا تَغَيُّظًا وَزَفِيرًا ( 12 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 12
When the Flame sees them from afar they will hear its rage and its roar. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 12
وَإِذَا أُلْقُوا مِنْهَا مَكَانًا ضَيِّقًا مُّقَرَّنِينَ دَعَوْا هُنَالِكَ ثُبُورًا ( 13 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 13
And when they are flung into a narrow space linked together in chains, they will plead for extinction there and then. (Distress of Hell is constricting while the Bliss of Paradise is Spacious (3:133). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 13
لَّا تَدْعُوا الْيَوْمَ ثُبُورًا وَاحِدًا وَادْعُوا ثُبُورًا كَثِيرًا ( 14 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 14
This Day plead not for a single extinction, but plead for repeated (revivals and) extinctions. (Therein they merely survive, neither living nor dying (14:17), (20:74), (87:13). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 14
قُلْ أَذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ أَمْ جَنَّةُ الْخُلْدِ الَّتِي وُعِدَ الْمُتَّقُونَ ۚ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَزَاءً وَمَصِيرًا ( 15 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 15
Say, "Is this better or the Garden of Immortality which is promised to those who walk aright? That is their reward and the ultimate destination." Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 15
لَّهُمْ فِيهَا مَا يَشَاءُونَ خَالِدِينَ ۚ كَانَ عَلَىٰ رَبِّكَ وَعْدًا مَّسْئُولًا ( 16 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 16

And on the Day when He summons them, together with the idols they had set up besides Allah, He will say to the idols, "Did you mislead these servants of Mine, or did they go astray from the Way on their own?" Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 17
قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ مَا كَانَ يَنبَغِي لَنَا أَن نَّتَّخِذَ مِن دُونِكَ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ وَلَٰكِن مَّتَّعْتَهُمْ وَآبَاءَهُمْ حَتَّىٰ نَسُوا الذِّكْرَ وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا بُورًا ( 18 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 18
They will say, "Glory to You! It was not befitting for us that we should take for protecting masters others than Yourself. But You did bestow on them and their ancestors, good things in life to the extent that they disregarded the Reminder and became a lost folk." Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 18
فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوكُم بِمَا تَقُولُونَ فَمَا تَسْتَطِيعُونَ صَرْفًا وَلَا نَصْرًا ۚ وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا ( 19 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 19

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ إِلَّا إِنَّهُمْ لَيَأْكُلُونَ الطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشُونَ فِي الْأَسْوَاقِ ۗ وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً أَتَصْبِرُونَ ۗ وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا ( 20 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 20
And the Messengers whom We sent before you (O Prophet) were all mortals who indeed ate food and went about in the market-places. It is thus that We cause you human beings to be a means of testing one another. Are you able to pass this test with patience? For, your Sustainer is All Seeing. (Human beings are expected to evaluate the Message by way of REASON, and not by way of miracles and supernatural phenomena (12:108)). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 20
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَرْجُونَ لِقَاءَنَا لَوْلَا أُنزِلَ عَلَيْنَا الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَوْ نَرَىٰ رَبَّنَا ۗ لَقَدِ اسْتَكْبَرُوا فِي أَنفُسِهِمْ وَعَتَوْا عُتُوًّا كَبِيرًا ( 21 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 21
Those who do not believe that they are destined to meet Us, say, "Why do not angels come down to us, or why do we not see our Lord?" Assuredly, they think too highly of themselves and they are uttering a gross insult. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 21
يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ الْمَلَائِكَةَ لَا بُشْرَىٰ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِّلْمُجْرِمِينَ وَيَقُولُونَ حِجْرًا مَّحْجُورًا ( 22 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 22
Yet on that Day when they shall see the angels, it will not be a pleasant news for violators of human rights who used to thrive on others' toil. They will exclaim, "Can there be a barrier between the angels and us?" Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 22
وَقَدِمْنَا إِلَىٰ مَا عَمِلُوا مِنْ عَمَلٍ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ هَبَاءً مَّنثُورًا ( 23 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 23
And We will look at the deeds they have done, and will make their work scatter like ashes and dust. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 23

The Day the heaven with the clouds will be rent asunder, angels will be sent down, a grand descent in ranks. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 25

On that Day it will become obvious to all that the Sovereignty belongs to the Most Gracious alone. Hence, a Day of distress it will be for all those who had been rejecting the Truth. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 26
وَيَوْمَ يَعَضُّ الظَّالِمُ عَلَىٰ يَدَيْهِ يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي اتَّخَذْتُ مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلًا ( 27 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 27
When the Day comes, the transgressor will bite his hands in anguish, exclaiming, "Oh, I wish I had taken a Path with the Messenger!" Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 27

وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي اتَّخَذُوا هَٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا ( 30 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 30
And the Messenger will say, "O my Lord! These are my people, the ones who had disabled and made this Qur'an of no account." (MAHJUR = They had immobilized it like villagers who bind a cow by tying her front foot to her horn). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 30
وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَا لِكُلِّ نَبِيٍّ عَدُوًّا مِّنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ ۗ وَكَفَىٰ بِرَبِّكَ هَادِيًا وَنَصِيرًا ( 31 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 31
Thus have we made for every Prophet enemies among the guilty, those who have been used to thriving on the fruit of others' toil. (6:112), (22:52-54). Yet, Your Lord is Sufficient for a Guide and Helper. (The Divine Message being a great Equalizer of humanity strikes at the vested interests of the exploiters). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 31
وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَوْلَا نُزِّلَ عَلَيْهِ الْقُرْآنُ جُمْلَةً وَاحِدَةً ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ لِنُثَبِّتَ بِهِ فُؤَادَكَ ۖ وَرَتَّلْنَاهُ تَرْتِيلًا ( 32 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 32
Now they who are bent on denying the Truth ask, "Why has not the Qur'an been revealed to him all at once?" So it has been! (It has all been revealed upon the Prophet's heart in the Night of Ruling (97:1)). For, in order to strengthen your heart We have already arranged it in the Right Order. And We have caused you to convey it to people in stages, step by step. (73:4). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 32
وَلَا يَأْتُونَكَ بِمَثَلٍ إِلَّا جِئْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَأَحْسَنَ تَفْسِيرًا ( 33 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 33
And no question do they bring to you but We bring to you the Truth and the best explanation. (We reveal to you the best TAFSEER, the explanation of the Qur'an from within itself). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 33
الَّذِينَ يُحْشَرُونَ عَلَىٰ وُجُوهِهِمْ إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ أُولَٰئِكَ شَرٌّ مَّكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ( 34 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 34

Then We said, "Go you both to the people who defy Our Laws!" Then We annihilated them (the deniers), a complete annihilation. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 36
وَقَوْمَ نُوحٍ لَّمَّا كَذَّبُوا الرُّسُلَ أَغْرَقْنَاهُمْ وَجَعَلْنَاهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ آيَةً ۖ وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ عَذَابًا أَلِيمًا ( 37 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 37
And Noah's folk: When they had denied the Messengers (denying him was denying the eternal Message of Allah), We caused them to drown and made them a symbol for all mankind. For, We have readied an awful doom for all who do wrong. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 37
وَعَادًا وَثَمُودَ وَأَصْحَابَ الرَّسِّ وَقُرُونًا بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ كَثِيرًا ( 38 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 38
And (Our Law also struck) Aad and Thamud, and the people of Ar-Rass, and many generations in between. (The people of Ar-Rass used to dig deep wells, and irrigate their flourishing crops. They lived in the current province of Al-Qaseem in the Central Arabian Peninsula. Historically they had thrown their Messenger in a well, and persisted with their feudal system). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 38
وَكُلًّا ضَرَبْنَا لَهُ الْأَمْثَالَ ۖ وَكُلًّا تَبَّرْنَا تَتْبِيرًا ( 39 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 39
Each of them We had warned with examples, and each of them We brought to total ruin. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 39
وَلَقَدْ أَتَوْا عَلَى الْقَرْيَةِ الَّتِي أُمْطِرَتْ مَطَرَ السَّوْءِ ۚ أَفَلَمْ يَكُونُوا يَرَوْنَهَا ۚ بَلْ كَانُوا لَا يَرْجُونَ نُشُورًا ( 40 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 40
And indeed they have passed by the township (Sodom) that was rained with a miserable rain. Have they never seen it with eyes of the heart? But nay, they expect not to be raised again. (They do not believe in the Law of Requital and deem that such things happen only by chance). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 40
وَإِذَا رَأَوْكَ إِن يَتَّخِذُونَكَ إِلَّا هُزُوًا أَهَٰذَا الَّذِي بَعَثَ اللَّهُ رَسُولًا ( 41 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 41

إِن كَادَ لَيُضِلُّنَا عَنْ آلِهَتِنَا لَوْلَا أَن صَبَرْنَا عَلَيْهَا ۚ وَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ حِينَ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ مَنْ أَضَلُّ سَبِيلًا ( 42 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 42
He would have led us far away from our gods if we were not staunch to them." They will know, when they see the doom, as to who is more astray from the Path. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 42

Have you seen him who has taken as god his own desire? Can you be an advocate responsible for him? Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 43

Or do you think that most of them really hear and use their reason? Nay! they are but like cattle. Nay, they are farther astray. (The cattle at least follow the Divine Laws instinctively). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 44
أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ كَيْفَ مَدَّ الظِّلَّ وَلَوْ شَاءَ لَجَعَلَهُ سَاكِنًا ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَا الشَّمْسَ عَلَيْهِ دَلِيلًا ( 45 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 45
Are you not aware of your Lord by His Works? - How He spread the shade. And if He Willed, He could have made it still! Then We have made the sun its pilot. (He could have designed the Solar System differently with the earth remaining stationary). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 45
ثُمَّ قَبَضْنَاهُ إِلَيْنَا قَبْضًا يَسِيرًا ( 46 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 46

And, He is the One Who sends the winds, glad news of His coming Grace, and We send down pure water from the sky. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 48
لِّنُحْيِيَ بِهِ بَلْدَةً مَّيْتًا وَنُسْقِيَهُ مِمَّا خَلَقْنَا أَنْعَامًا وَأَنَاسِيَّ كَثِيرًا ( 49 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 49
That We may give life with it to a dead land, and We provide drink for Our creations, a great many animals and human beings. Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 49

And verily, many times We have repeated all this to mankind, so that they might bear in mind. Yet most people refuse to be anything but ungrateful (for such Light-giving Guidance). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 50
وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لَبَعَثْنَا فِي كُلِّ قَرْيَةٍ نَّذِيرًا ( 51 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 51
Now had We so Willed, We could have continued to raise up a Warner in every single community. (But, time has now come for the Eternal, Universal Message, the Qur'an (25:1)). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 51
فَلَا تُطِعِ الْكَافِرِينَ وَجَاهِدْهُم بِهِ جِهَادًا كَبِيرًا ( 52 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 52
Hence, (O Prophet) Disregard the likes and dislikes of the rejecters, but strive hard against them by means of this, with utmost striving. (Jihadan Kabira = The Great Jihad by means of this Qur'an). Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 52
وَهُوَ الَّذِي مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ هَٰذَا عَذْبٌ فُرَاتٌ وَهَٰذَا مِلْحٌ أُجَاجٌ وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخًا وَحِجْرًا مَّحْجُورًا ( 53 ) Al-Furqan (The Criterion ) - Aya 53
And He it is Who has given freedom of movement to the two kinds of great bodies of water; one is palatable and fresh, the other salt and bitter.
