Quran & Tafseer, The Noble Quran / Sunday, August 31st, 2008

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

وَالتِّينِ وَالزَّيْتُونِ (1)

[95:1] I swear by the Fig and the Olive,

وَطُورِ سِينِينَ (2)

[95:2] and by Tūr, the mount of Sinai,

وَهَذَا الْبَلَدِ الأَمِينِ (3)

[95:3] and by this peaceful city,

لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الإِنسَانَ فِي أَحْسَنِ تَقْوِيمٍ (4)

[95:4] We have created man in the best composition,

ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَاهُ أَسْفَلَ سَافِلِينَ (5)

[95:5] then We turned him into the lowest of the low,

إِلاَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ فَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ (6)

[95:6] except those who believed and did righteous deeds, because for them there is a reward never ending.

فَمَا يُكَذِّبُكَ بَعْدُ بِالدِّينِ (7)

[95:7] So, what can make you, after all this, to deny the Requital?

أَلَيْسَ اللَّهُ بِأَحْكَمِ الْحَاكِمِينَ (8)

[95:8] Is Allah not the Greatest Ruler of all the rulers?
