SURAT AL-MUDDATHTHIR (THE CLOAKED ONE) & AL-FATIHA (THE OPENING)

MECCAN PERIOD

Division: 14

1,2O the one who is ready for duty!21 Arise! Immediately, warn!25Al-Fatiha 1-7” In the name of Allah, the One Who gives blessings to all living beings He created, the One Who is very merciful upon those He created: “All praise is to Allah, Rabb23 of all worlds22, the One Who gives blessings to all living beings He created, the One Who is very merciful to those He created, the owner and the ruler of the day of Akhirat [Afterlife], on which everyone will be recompensed with all deeds, evil or good, he did; no one else may be praised. Only You we worship24 and only You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path of those whom You favored, not to the path of those whom You are not pleased with and who are stuck in confusion!” 3And proclaim that only your Rabb is the greatest; 4-7do not stain your character; keep clean, abstain from blemish right away, take filth away immediately, do not reproach for the good that you did! And be patient only for your Rabb!26

8-10Because when that trumpet is blown,27 that day will be a very difficult and tough day. It will not be easy at all for the infidels; those who consciously denied the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb.

11-14Leave Me alone with the one whom I created alone, granted endless wealth, bestowed sons as witnesses, spread for him wide opportunities!

15After all that, he desires ambitiously that I should add even more. 16Certainly not as he thinks! Indeed, he has been obstinate towards Our Ayat/evidences/signs. 17I will oblige him to a steep ramp. 18-25Surely, he thought and planned. –He is ruined. How he planned! He is ruined again. How he planned!- Then he looked. Then he scowled, frowned. Then he turned back and acted arrogantly: “This is nothing but a magic coming as a rumor. This is nothing but the word of a human being ”.

26-30Soon I will drive the one who says “the Qur’an is nothing but the word of a human being” to the Saqar. Do you know what the Saqar is? It does not let remain nor leaves. It is what makes extraordinary plates/what is thirsty/what is seen from afar/what is an evidence for man/skin. Upon the Saqar is “nineteen”.

31And We have made companions of Jahannah [Hell] only angels. And We have not made their numbers except a trial so that those who were given the Book may know explicitly, those who have believed may increase in faith; those who were given the Book and those who believe may not have any doubt and those in whose hearts is disease; the ill-minded and infidels; those who have consciously denied the divinity of Allah and the fact that He is Rabb may say “What did Allah intend to say with this?”. Thus it is. Allah leads astray whom He wills/who wills, guides whom He wills/who wills. And no one knows the armies of your Rabb except Him. This is nothing but a reminder and what makes think for humanity.28

32-37Certainly not as you think! The status of the messenger, ignorance that departs, social enlightenment that has begun29 is the evidence that, the Saqar is one of the greatest things as a warner for the humans; for those among you who wish to proceed/go ahead or stay behind/fall behind.

38,39Every one who has found his self – except for the companions of the right – is a pledge for what he has earned.

40,41The companions of the right will be in the gardens. They will ask each other about the criminals: 42”What led you into the Saqar?” 43The criminals will say: “We were not of those who fulfill Salah [support financially and spiritually; strive to enlighten the community], 44and we did not give opportunities for those unemployed so they might earn their living. 45And our deeds were in vain together with those whose deeds were in vain. 46,47And we denied the Day of Religion until indisputable and inevitable death, the Qiyamat [Resurrection] came to us”. 48Now, help and intercession of intercessors, helpers will not benefit them.

49Then what is the matter with them that they turn away from that which reminds/makes them think? 50,51They are like fearful donkeys; fleeing from a lion. 52Rather, every person among them desires that he would be given scriptures spread. 53Certainly not as they think! Actually, they do not fear Akhirat [Afterlife]. 54Certainly not as they think! It is a reminder/what makes you think. 55,56Then whoever wills, will think and remember. And they will not remember except that Allah wills. He is capable of protecting, avoiding and forgiving.
