Sûrat Al- A‘râf

[The Heights (or The Walls with Elevations) ] VII
In the Name of Allâh
the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

  1. Alif- Lâm- Mîm- Sâd. [ These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’ân and none but Allâh ( Alone ) knows their meaning

  1. ( This is the ) Book ( the Qur’ân ) sent down unto you ( O Muhammad ( saas ) ) , so let not your breast be narrow therefrom, that you warn thereby; and a reminder unto the believers
  2. [ Say ( O Muhammad ( saas ) ) to these idolaters ( pagan Arabs ) of your folk: ] Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord ( the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad’s Sunnah ) , and follow not any Auliyâ’ ( protectors and helpers who order you to associate partners in worship with Allâh ) , besides Him ( Allâh ) . Little do you remember

  1. And a great number of towns ( their population ) We destroyed ( for their crimes ) . Our torment came upon them ( suddenly ) by night or while they were taking their midday nap
    • No cry did they utter when Our Torment came upon them but this: « Verily, we were Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) »
  2. Then surely, We shall question those ( people ) to whom it ( the Book ) was sent and verily, We shall question the Messengers
  3. Then surely, We shall narrate unto them ( their whole story ) with knowledge, and indeed We have not been absent

  1. And the weighing on that day ( Day of Resurrection ) will be the true ( weighing ) [ 1 ] . So as for those whose scale ( of good deeds ) will be heavy, they will be the successful ( by entering Paradise )
  2. And as for those whose scale will be light, they are those who will lose their ownselves ( by entering Hell ) because they denied and rejected Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. )

  1. And surely, We gave you authority on the earth and appointed for you therein provisions ( for your life ) . Little thanks do you give
  2. And surely, We created you ( your father Adam ) and then gave you shape ( the noble shape of a human being ) ; then We told the angels, « Prostrate yourselves to Adam » , and they prostrated themselves, except Iblîs ( Satan ) , he refused to be of those who prostrated themselves

1 The Statement of Allâh (Lord Almighty and Exalted)
« And We shall set up balances of justice on the Day of Resurrection. » ( V.21:47 ) .
The deeds and the statement of Adam’s offspring will be weighed
Narrated Abu Hurairah ( raa ) : The Prophet ( saas ) said, ( There are ) two words ( expressions or sayings ) which are dear to the Most Gracious ( Allâh ) and very easy for the tongue to say, but very heavy in the balance. They are


Subhân Allâhi- wa bihamdihi – Subhân Allâhil- ‘Azîm’ « ( Sahih Al- Bukhârî, Vol. 9. hadîth No.652 ) .»
‘Glorified be Allâh and praised be He’ – ‘Glorified be Allâh, the Most Great.’ ( or I deem Allâh above all those unsuitable things ascribed to Him, and free Him from resembling anything whatsoever, and I glorify His Praises! I deem Allâh, the Most Great above all those unsuitable things ascribed to Him and free Him from resembling anything whatsoever )

  1. ( Allâh ) said: « What prevented you ( O Iblîs ) that you did not prostrate yourself, when I commanded you? » Iblîs said: « I am better than him ( Adam ) , You created me from fire, and him You created from clay. »
  2. ( Allâh ) said: « ( O Iblîs ) get down from this ( Paradise ) , it is not for you to be arrogant here. Get out, for you are of those humiliated and disgraced. »
  3. ( Iblîs ) said: « Allow me respite till the Day they are raised up ( i.e. the Day of Resurrection ) . »
  4. ( Allâh ) said: « You are of those respited. »

  1. ( Iblîs ) said: « Because You have sent me astray, surely I will sit in wait against them ( human beings ) on Your Straight Path.»
  2. « Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and You will not find most of them as thankful ones ( i.e. they will not be dutiful to You ) . »
  3. ( Allâh ) said ( to Iblîs ) : « Get out from this ( Paradise ) , disgraced and expelled. Whoever of them ( mankind ) will follow you, then surely I will fill Hell with you all. »

  1. « And O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in Paradise, and eat thereof as you both wish, but approach not this tree otherwise you both will be of the Zâlimûn ( unjust and wrong- doers ) . »
  2. Then Shaitân ( Satan ) whispered suggestions to them both in order to uncover that which was hidden from them of their private parts ( before ) ; he said: « Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save that you should become angels or become of the immortals. »
  3. And he [ Shaitân ( Satan ) ] swore by Allâh to them both ( saying ) :

  1. So he misled them with deception. Then when they tasted of the tree, that which was hidden from them of their shame ( private parts ) became manifest to them and they began to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise ( in order to cover their shame ) . And their Lord called out to them ( saying ) : « Did I not forbid you that tree and tell you: Verily, Shaitân ( Satan ) is an open enemy unto you? »
  1. They said: « Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If You forgive us not, and bestow not upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be of the losers. »

  1. ( Allâh ) said: « Get down, one of you is an enemy to the other [ i.e. Adam, Hawwâ’ ( Eve ) , and Shaitân ( Satan ) ] . On earth will be a dwelling- place for you and an enjoyment for a time. »
  2. He said: « Therein you shall live, and therein you shall die, and from it you shall be brought out ( i.e. resurrected ) . »

  1. O Children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover yourselves ( screen your private parts ) and as an adornment; and the raiment of righteousness, that is better. Such are among the Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) of Allâh, that they may remember ( i.e. leave falsehood and follow truth [ 1 ] )

  1. O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitân ( Satan ) deceive you, as he got your parents [ Adam and Hawwâ’ ( Eve ) ] out of Paradise, stripping them of their raiments, to show them their private parts. Verily, he and Qabîluhu ( his soldiers from the jinn or his tribe ) see you from where you cannot see them. Verily, We made the Shayâtin ( devils ) Auliyâ’ ( protectors and helpers ) for those who believe not

  1. And when they commit a Fâhishah ( evil deed, going round the Ka‘bah in naked state, and every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse ) , they say: « We found our fathers doing it, and Allâh has commanded it on us. » Say: « Nay, Allâh never commands Fâhishah. Do you say of Allâh what you know not? »

  1. Say ( O Muhammad ( saas ) ) : My Lord has commanded justice and ( said ) that you should face Him only ( i.e. worship none but Allâh and face the Qiblah, i.e. the Ka‘bah at Makkah during prayers ) in every place of worship, in prayers ( and not to face other false deities and idols ) , and invoke Him only making your religion sincere to Him

  1. ( by not joining in worship any partner with Him and with the intention that you are doing your deeds for Allâh’s sake only ) . As He brought you ( into being ) in the beginning, so shall you be brought into being [ on the Day of Resurrection in two groups, one as a blessed one ( believers ) , and the other as a wretched one ( disbelievers ) ]

  1. A group He has guided, and a group deserved to be in error; ( because ) surely they took the Shayâtîn ( devils ) as Auliyâ’ ( protectors and helpers ) instead of Allâh, and think that they are guided

1 It is said that the pagan Arabs in the Pre-Islâmic Period of Ignorance used to do Tawâf (going round) of the Ka‘bah in a naked state. So when Islâm became victorious and Makkah was conquered, the pagans and the polytheists were forbidden to enter Makkah, and none was allowed to do Tawâf of the Ka‘bah in a naked state

  1. ( Allâh ) will say: « Enter you in the company of nations who passed away before you, of men and jinn, into the Fire. » Every time a new nation enters, it curses its sister nation ( that went before ) until they will be gathered all together in the Fire. The last of them will say to the first of them: « Our Lord! These misled us, so give them a double torment of the Fire. » He will say: « For each one there is double ( torment ) , but you know not. »

  1. The first of them will say to the last of them: « You were not better than us, so taste the torment for what you used to earn. »
  2. Verily, those who belie Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations ) and treat them with arrogance, for them the gates of heaven will not be opened, and they will not enter Paradise until the camel goes through the eye of the needle ( which is impossible ) . Thus do We recompense the Mujrimûn ( criminals, polytheists and sinners )
  3. Theirs will be a bed of Hell ( Fire ) , and over them coverings ( of Hell- fire ) . Thus do We recompense the Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers )

  1. But those who believed ( in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism ) , and worked righteousness – We tax not any person beyond his scope – such are the dwellers of Paradise. They will abide therein
  2. And We shall remove from their breasts any

  1. ( mutual ) hatred or sense of injury ( which they had, if at all, in the life of this world ) ; rivers flowing under them, and they will say: « All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, Who has guided us to this, and never could we have found guidance, were it not that Allâh had guided us! Indeed, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth. » And it will be cried out to them: « This is the Paradise which you have inherited for what you used to do. »

  1. And the dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of the Fire ( saying ) : « We have indeed found true what our Lord had promised us; have you also found true, what your Lord promised ( warnings ) ? » They shall say: « Yes. » Then a crier will proclaim between them: « The Curse of Allâh is on the Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) . »

  1. Those who hindered ( men ) from the Path of Allâh, and would seek to make it crooked, and they were disbelievers in the Hereafter

  1. And between them will be a ( barrier ) screen and on Al- A‘râf [ 1 ] ( a wall with elevated places ) will be men ( whose good and evil deeds would be equal in scale ) , who would recognise all ( of the Paradise and Hell people ) , by their marks ( the dwellers of Paradise by their white faces and the dwellers of Hell by their black faces ) , they will call out to the dwellers of Paradise, « Salâmun ‘Alaikum » ( Peace be on you ) , and at that time they ( men on Al- A‘râf ) will not yet have entered it ( Paradise ) , but they will hope to enter ( it ) with certainty

  1. And when their eyes will be turned towards the dwellers of the Fire, they will say: « Our Lord! Place us not with the people who are Zâlimûn ( polytheists and wrong- doers ) . »
  2. And the men on Al- A‘râf ( the wall ) will call unto the men whom they would recognise by their marks, saying: « Of what benefit to you were your great numbers ( and hoards of wealth ) , and your arrogance ( against Faith ) ? »

  1. Are they those, of whom you swore that Allâh would never show them mercy. ( Behold! It has been said to them ) : « Enter Paradise, no fear shall be on you, nor shall you grieve. »
  2. And the dwellers of the Fire will call to the dwellers of Paradise: « Pour on us some water or anything that Allâh has provided you with. » They will say: « Both ( water and provision ) Allâh has forbidden to the disbelievers. »

  1. « Who took their religion as an amusement and play, and the life of the world deceived them. » So this Day We shall forget them as they forgot their meeting of this Day, and as they used to reject Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations )

52. Certainly, We have brought them a Book ( the Qur’ân ) which We have explained in detail with knowledge, – a guidance and a mercy to a people who believe
53. Await they just for the final fullfilment of the event? On the Day the event is finally fulfilled ( i.e. the Day of Resurrection ) , those who neglected it before will say

 « Verily, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth, now are there any intercessors for us that they might intercede on our behalf? Or could we be sent back ( to the first life of the world ) so that we might do ( good ) deeds other than those ( evil ) deeds which we used to do? » Verily, they have lost their ownselves ( i.e. destroyed themselves ) and that which they used to fabricate ( invoking and worshipping others besides Allâh ) has gone away from them


54. Indeed your Lord is Allâh, Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days, and then He rose over ( Istawâ ) the Throne ( really in a manner that suits His Majesty ) . He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and ( He created ) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed is Allâh, the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind, jinn and all that exists )


55. Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors.
56. And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, and invoke Him with fear and hope. Surely, Allâh’s Mercy is ( ever ) near unto the good- doers


57. And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of glad tidings, going before His Mercy ( rain ) . Till when they have carried a heavy- laden cloud, We drive it to a land that is dead, then We cause water ( rain ) to descend thereon. Then We produce every kind of fruit therewith. Similarly, We shall raise up the dead, so that you may remember or take heed

  1. The vegetation of a good land comes forth ( easily ) by the Permission of its Lord; and that which is bad, brings forth nothing but ( a little ) with difficulty. Thus do We explain variously the Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) for a people who give thanks

  1. Indeed, We sent Nûh ( Noah ) to his people and he said: « O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh ( God ) but Him. ( Lâ ilâha illallâh: none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh ) . Certainly, I fear for you the torment of a Great Day! »
  2. The leaders of his people said: « Verily, we see you in plain error. »
  3. [ Nûh ( Noah ) ] said: « O my people! There is no error in me, but I am a Messenger from the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind, jinn and all that exists ) !»
  4. « I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord and give sincere advice to you. And I know from Allâh what you know not.»

  1. « Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder from your Lord through a man from amongst you, that he may warn you, so that you may fear Allâh and that you may receive ( His ) Mercy? »
  2. But they belied him, so We saved him and those along with him in the ship, and We drowned those who belied Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) . They were indeed a blind people

  1. And to ‘Âd ( people, We sent ) their brother Hûd. He said: « O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh ( God ) but Him. ( Lâ ilâha illallâh: none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh ) . Will you not fear ( Allâh ) ? »

  1. The leaders of those who disbelieved among his people said: « Verily, we see you in foolishness, and verily, we think you are one of the liars. »
  2. ( Hûd ) said: « O my people! There is no foolishness in me, but ( I am ) a Messenger from the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind, jinn and all that exists ) !»

68. « I convey unto you the Messages of my Lord, and I am a trustworthy adviser ( or well- wisher ) for you.»
69. « Do you wonder that there has come to you a Reminder ( and an advice ) from your Lord through a man from amongst you to warn you? And remember that He made you successors after the people of Nûh ( Noah ) and increased you amply in stature. So remember the graces ( bestowed upon you ) from Allâh so that you may be successful. »


70. They said: « You have come to us that we should worship Allâh Alone and forsake that which our fathers used to worship. So bring us that wherewith you have threatened us if you are of the truthful. »
71. ( Hûd ) said: « Torment and wrath have already fallen on you from your Lord. Dispute you with me over names which you have named – you and your fathers – with no authority from Allâh? Then wait, I am with you among those who wait. »


72. So We saved him and those who were with him by a mercy from Us, and We cut the roots of those who belied Our Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) ; and they were not believers


73. And to Thamûd ( people, We sent ) their brother Sâlih. He said: « O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh ( God ) but Him. ( Lâ ilâha illallâh: none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh ) . Indeed there has come to you a clear sign ( the miracle of the coming out of a huge she- camel from the midst of a rock ) from your Lord. This she- camel of Allâh is a sign unto you; so you leave her to graze in Allâh’s earth, and touch her not with harm, lest a painful torment should seize you.»

  1. And remember when He made you successors after ‘Âd ( people ) and gave you habitations in the land, you build for yourselves palaces in plains, and carve out homes in the mountains. So remember the graces ( bestowed upon you ) from Allâh, and do not go about making mischief on the earth. « »
  2. The leaders of those who were arrogant among his people said to those who were counted weak – to such of them as believed: « Know you that Sâlih is one sent from his Lord. » They said: « We indeed believe in that with which he has been sent. »

  1. Those who were arrogant said: « Verily, we disbelieve in that which you believe in. »
  2. So they killed the she- camel and insolently defied the Commandment of their Lord, and said: « O Sâlih! Bring about your threats if you are indeed one of the Messengers ( of Allâh ) . »
  3. So the earthquake seized them, and they lay ( dead ) , prostrate in their homes
  4. Then he [ Sâlih ] turned from them, and said: « O my people! I have indeed conveyed to you the Message of my Lord, and have given you good advice but you like not good advisers. »

  1. And ( remember ) Lût ( Lot ) , when he said to his people: « Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind and jinn ) ?»
    • « Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds ( by committing great sins ) . »

82. And the answer of his people was only that they said: « Drive them out of your town, these are indeed men who want to be pure ( from sins ) ! »
83. Then We saved him and his family, except his wife; she was of those who remained behind ( in the torment )


84. And We rained down on them a rain ( of stones ) . Then see what was the end of the Mujrimûn ( criminals, polytheists and sinners )


85. And to ( the people of ) Madyan ( Midian ) , ( We sent ) their brother Shu‘aib. He said: « O my people! Worship Allâh! You have no other Ilâh ( God ) but Him. [ Lâ ilâha illallâh ( none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh ) ] . » Verily, a clear proof ( sign ) from your Lord has come unto you; so give full measure and full weight and wrong not men in their things, and do not do mischief on the earth after it has been set in order, that will be better for you, if you are believers


86. « And sit not on every road, threatening, and hindering from the Path of Allâh those who believe in Him, and seeking to make it crooked. And remember when you were but few, and He multiplied you. And see what was the end of the Mufsidûn ( mischief- makers, corrupters, liars ) .»
87. « And if there is a party of you who believe in that with which I have been sent and a party who do not believe, so be patient until Allâh judges between us, and He is the Best of judges. » [ 1 ]

[1] (V.7:87)


A ) . Narrated ‘Abdullâh bin ‘Umar ( raa ) : Allâh’s Messenger ( saas ) said, « Surely! Everyone of you is a guardian and is responsible for his charges: The Imâm ( ruler ) of the people is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects: a man is the guardian of his family ( household ) and is responsible for his subjects: a woman is the guardian of her husband’s home

and of his children and is responsible for them; and the slave of a man is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. Surely, everyone of you is a guardian and responsible for his charges. » ( Sahih Al- Bukhâri, Vol.9, hadîth No.252 )


B ) . Narrated Tarîf Abî Tamîmah: I saw Safwân and Jundub and Safwân’s companions when Jundub was advising. They said, « Did you hear something from Allâh’s Messenger ( saas ) ? » Jundub said, « I heard him saying, ‘Whoever does a good deed in order to show- off, Allâh will expose his intentions on the Day of Resurrection ( before the people ) , and whoever puts the people into difficulties, Allâh will put him into difficulties on the Day of Resurrection.’ »

 The people said ( to Jundub ) , « Advise us. » He said, « The first thing of the human body to purify is the abdomen, so he who can eat nothing but good food ( Halâl and earned lawfully ) should do so, and he who does as much as he can that nothing intervene between him and Paradise by not shedding even a handful of blood, ( i.e. murdering ) should do so. » [ Sahih Al- Bukhâri, Vol.9, hadîth No.266 ] 


C ) Narrated Anas bin Mâlik ( raa ) : While the Prophet ( saas ) and I were coming out of the mosque, a man met us outside the gate. The man said, « O Allâh’s Messenger! When will be the Hour? » The Prophet ( saas ) asked him, « What have you prepared for it? » The man became afraid and ashamed and then said, « O Allâh’s Messenger! I haven’t prepared for it much of Saum ( fasts ) , Salât ( prayers ) or charitable gifts but I love Allâh and His Messenger. » The Prophet ( saas ) said, « You will be with the one whom you love. » [ Sahih Al- Bukhâri, Vol.9, hadîth No. 267 ] 


D ) . Narrated Abu Dharr ( raa ) : Once I went to him ( the Prophet ( saas ) ) and he said, « By Allâh in Whose Hand my life is ( Or probably said, » By Allâh, except whom none has the right to be worshipped ) « whoever had camels or cows or sheep and did not pay their Zakât, those animals will be brought on the Day of Resurrection far bigger and fatter than before and they will tread him under their hooves, and will butt him with their horns, and ( those animals will come in circle ) : When the last does its turn, the first will start again, and this punishment will go on till Allâh has finished the judgements amongst the people. »
