بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate and the Merciful
 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 053

لِيَجْعَلَ مَا يُلْقِي الشَّيْطَانُ فِتْنَةً لِلَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ مَرَضٌ وَالْقَاسِيَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ لَفِي شِقَاقٍ بَعِيدٍ [ Whatever Satan throws in, Allah may make as a trial for those in whose hearts there is a disease (of hypocrisy and disbelief) and whose hearts are hardened.  Certainly, the wrongdoers are deadly opposed to the Truth. ]
 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 054

وَلِيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِنْ رَبِّكَ فَيُؤْمِنُوا بِهِ فَتُخْبِتَ لَهُ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهَادِ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ [ While those who have been granted knowledge (of the truth) know that whatever Allah reveals is the truth, and they believe in it and their hearts submit to Him in utmost humility. Allah guides to the straight path those who believe. ]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 055

وَلَا يَزَالُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فِي مِرْيَةٍ مِنْهُ حَتَّى تَأْتِيَهُمُ السَّاعَةُ بَغْتَةً أَوْ يَأْتِيَهُمْ عَذَابُ يَوْمٍ عَقِيمٍ [ But the unbelievers will continue to be in doubt about it (the Quran) until the Hour of Doom comes suddenly on them, or there comes on them a punishment of the Day of Disaster.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 056

الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِلَّهِ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ فِي جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ [ The sovereignty on that Day belongs to Allah; He will judge between them. So, those who believed and did righteous deeds will be in the Gardens of Delight.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 057

وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَكَذَّبُوا بِآَيَاتِنَا فَأُولَئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُهِينٌ [ And they who disbelieved and denied Our signs; for those there will be a humiliating punishment.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 058

وَالَّذِينَ هَاجَرُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ قُتِلُوا أَوْ مَاتُوا لَيَرْزُقَنَّهُمُ اللَّهُ رِزْقًا حَسَنًا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ [ Those who emigrated from their homes in the way of Allah, and then were killed or died, will surely be given a better provision by Allah, for Allah is surely the best of providers.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 059

لَيُدْخِلَنَّهُمْ مُدْخَلًا يَرْضَوْنَهُ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَلِيمٌ حَلِيمٌ [ He will admit them into an abode they are pleased with.  Indeed Allah is All Knowing, All Forbearing.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 060

ذَلِكَ وَمَنْ عَاقَبَ بِمِثْلِ مَا عُوقِبَ بِهِ ثُمَّ بُغِيَ عَلَيْهِ لَيَنْصُرَنَّهُ اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَعَفُوٌّ غَفُورٌ [ That (is  so).  If anyone retaliates because he was wronged unjustly, and seeks damages proportionate to his suffering (then he is justified).  And if he is wronged again, then (he will find that) Allah will definitely assist him. Allah is indeed Oft Pardoning and Oft Forgiving.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 061

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ يُولِجُ اللَّيْلَ فِي النَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ النَّهَارَ فِي اللَّيْلِ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ [ That is because Allah causes the night to enter the day and causes the day to enter the night and because Allah is All Hearing and All Seeing.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 062

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ هُوَ الْبَاطِلُ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْكَبِيرُ [ That is because Allah is the truth, and whatever they (polytheists) invoke besides Him, it is falsehood. And verily Allah is the Supreme, the Great.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 063

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَتُصْبِحُ الْأَرْضُ مُخْضَرَّةً إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَطِيفٌ خَبِيرٌ [ Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky, then the earth becomes green? Surely Allah is Most Subtle, All Aware.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 064

لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَهُوَ الْغَنِيُّ الْحَمِيدُ [ To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth; surely Allah is the One Who is the Self-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 065

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُمْ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَالْفُلْكَ تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِأَمْرِهِ وَيُمْسِكُ السَّمَاءَ أَنْ تَقَعَ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَءُوفٌ رَحِيمٌ [ Do you not see that Allah has made everything on the earth of service to you, including the ships that sail through the sea by His command. And that He prevents sky from falling on the earth without His permission? Allah is most compassionate and most Merciful to human beings.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 066

وَهُوَ الَّذِي أَحْيَاكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ إِنَّ الْإِنْسَانَ لَكَفُورٌ [ And He is the one who gave you life; then He causes you to die and then will (again) give you life. Indeed, mankind is ungrateful.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 067

لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنْسَكًا هُمْ نَاسِكُوهُ فَلَا يُنَازِعُنَّكَ فِي الْأَمْرِ وَادْعُ إِلَى رَبِّكَ إِنَّكَ لَعَلَى هُدًى مُسْتَقِيمٍ [ For every community We appointed a code of life to follow. So do not let them dispute with you  (O Prophet  ﷺ) in this matter. And invite (them) to your Lord, for you are truly on the Right Guidance.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 068

وَإِنْ جَادَلُوكَ فَقُلِ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ [ If they argue with you, tell them,  'Allah  knows well what you are doing.']

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 069

اللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فِيمَا كُنْتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ [ Allah will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection concerning the matters in which you differ.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 070

أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ فِي كِتَابٍ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ [ Do you not know that surely Allah knows whatever there is in the heavens and on the earth (including whatever takes place in them). They are all recorded in a Book. This (keeping the record of them all) is indeed easy for Allah.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 071

وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يُنَزِّلْ بِهِ سُلْطَانًا وَمَا لَيْسَ لَهُمْ بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ نَصِيرٍ  [ And they worship these (idols), besides Allah, for which He has not sent down any authority. Nor do they have any knowledge of (the consequence of) this (idol worship). And there will be no helper of the wrongdoers (on the Day of Judgment).]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 072

وَإِذَا تُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ آَيَاتُنَا بَيِّنَاتٍ تَعْرِفُ فِي وُجُوهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا الْمُنْكَرَ يَكَادُونَ يَسْطُونَ بِالَّذِينَ يَتْلُونَ عَلَيْهِمْ آَيَاتِنَا قُلْ أَفَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَلِكُمُ النَّارُ وَعَدَهَا اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ  [ And when Our clear Verses are recited to them, you will notice denial on the faces of those who disbelieve! They are nearly ready to attack with violence those who recite Our Verses to them.  Say: 'Shall I tell you something worse than that? It is the fire (of Hell) which Allah has promised to those who disbelieve, and worst indeed will be that destination!']

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 073

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ ضُرِبَ مَثَلٌ فَاسْتَمِعُوا لَهُ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ لَنْ يَخْلُقُوا ذُبَابًا وَلَوِ اجْتَمَعُوا لَهُ وَإِنْ يَسْلُبْهُمُ الذُّبَابُ شَيْئًا لَا يَسْتَنْقِذُوهُ مِنْهُ ضَعُفَ الطَّالِبُ وَالْمَطْلُوبُ  [ O' people! A parable is given, so listen to it (carefully). 'Those (idols) you invoke besides Allah can never create (even) a fly, even if they (all) were to come together for that. And if a fly were to snatch anything away from them, they cannot retrieve it from the fly. How powerless are those who invoke and those invoked!]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 074

مَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ  [ They have not shown Allah the reverence He deserves.  Surely Allah is All Powerful, Almighty.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 075

اللَّهُ يَصْطَفِي مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ رُسُلًا وَمِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ  [ Allah chooses messengers from angels and from mankind. Indeed Allah is All Hearing, All Seeing.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 076

يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُرْجَعُ الْأُمُورُ  [ He knows what is in front of them and what is hidden from them. And to Allah shall all matters return for decision.]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 077

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا ارْكَعُوا وَاسْجُدُوا وَاعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمْ وَافْعَلُوا الْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ  [ O' believers! Bow down, prostrate yourselves, worship your Lord, and do  good deeds so that you may be successful. ]

 

Juz 17, Al-Hajj, Verse 078

وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ مِنْ قَبْلُ وَفِي هَذَا لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآَتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلَاكُمْ فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلَى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ  [ And strive for the sake of Allah, a strive which is worthy of Him. He has chosen you and has not placed for you any obstacle in the religion, the faith of your father, Ibrahim (عليه السلام). He named you 'Muslims' before, and in this, so that the Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) will  be a witness to you, and that you will be witnesses to mankind.  So establish Salah, give the Zakat, and hold fast to Allah.  He is your Guardian, an excellent Guardian (He is),  and an excellent protector. ]
