Surah An-Najm 53:41-62

53:41 Whereupon he shall be required for it with the fullest requital. 

53:42 And that with thy Sustainer is the beginning and the end [of all that exists].

53:43 And that it is He alone who causes [you] to laugh and to weep. 

53:44 And that it is He alone who deals death and grants life.

53:45 And that it is He who creates the two kinds – the male and the female. 

53:46 Out of a [mere] drop of sperm as it is poured forth.

53:47 And that [therefore] it is within His power to bring about second life.

53:48 And that it is He alone who frees from want and causes to possess. 

53:49 And that it is He alone who sustains the brightest star.

53:50 And that it is He who destroyed the ancient [tribes of] ‘Ad. 

53:51 And Thamud, leaving no trace [of them].

53:52 As well as the people of Noah before them – [since] Verily, they all had been most wilful in their evildoing and most overweening.

53:53 Just as He thrust into perdition those cities that were overthrown.

53:54 And then covered them from sight forever.

53:55 About which, then, of thy Sustainer’s powers canst thou [still] remain in doubt?

53:56 This is a warning like those warnings of old.

53:57 That [Last Hour] which is so near drawing ever nearer. 

53:58 [Although] none but God can unveil it….

53:59 Do you, perchance, find this tiding strange?  

53:60 And do you laugh instead of weeping.

53:61 And divert yourselves all the while?

53:62 [Nay] but prostrate yourselves before God, and worship [Him alone]!


The divine scriptures are God’s beacons to the world. Surely God offered His trust to the heavens and the earth, and the hills, but they shrank from bearing it and were afraid of it. And man undertook it.
