22:1

22:2

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

The Day you see it, every nursing mother will abandon what she is nursing, and every pregnant woman will deliver her burden ˹prematurely˺. And you will see people ˹as if they were˺ drunk, though they will not be drunk; but the torment of Allah is ˹terribly˺ severe.

22:3

22:4

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

It has been decreed for such devils that whoever takes them as a guide will be misguided and led by them into the torment of the Blaze.

22:5

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

O humanity! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then ˹know that˺ We did create you1 from dust, then from a sperm-drop,2 then ˹developed you into˺ a clinging clot ˹of blood˺,3 then a lump of flesh4—fully formed or unformed5—in order to demonstrate ˹Our power˺ to you. ˹Then˺ We settle whatever ˹embryo˺ We will in the womb for an appointed term, then bring you forth as infants, so that you may reach your prime. Some of you ˹may˺ die ˹young˺, while others are left to reach the most feeble stage of life so that they may know nothing after having known much. And you see the earth lifeless, but as soon as We send down rain upon it, it begins to stir ˹to life˺ and swell, producing every type of pleasant plant.

22:6

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

That is because Allah ˹alone˺ is the Truth, He ˹alone˺ gives life to the dead, and He ˹alone˺ is Most Capable of everything.

22:7

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

And certainly the Hour is coming, there is no doubt about it. And Allah will surely resurrect those in the graves.

22:8

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹Still˺ there are some who dispute about Allah without knowledge, guidance, or an enlightening scripture,

22:9

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

turning away ˹in pride˺ to lead ˹others˺ astray from Allah’s Way. They will suffer disgrace in this world, and on the Day of Judgment We will make them taste the torment of burning.

22:10

Dr. Mustafa Khattab

˹They will be told,˺ “This is ˹the reward˺ for what your hands have done. And Allah is never unjust to ˹His˺ servants.”
