 TRANSLATION

1. Ya-Sin. (Only Allah and the Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him] know the real meaning.)
2. By the Qur’an, full of Wisdom,
3. You are indeed one of the Messengers,
4. On the Straight Path.
5. This is revealed by Almighty, Ever-Merciful,
6. That you may warn the people whose fathers were (also) not warned. So they are careless and neglectful.
7. In fact Our Command has proved true against most of them. So they will not believe.
8. Surely We have put iron collars round their necks reaching their chins. So they have raised their heads up.
9. And We have set a wall before them and a wall behind them, and We have cast a veil over their eyes so they do not see anything.
10. And it is all the same for them whether you warn or do not warn them, they will not believe.
11. You can only warn him who follows the direction and guidance and fears the Most Kind Lord unseen. So give him the good news of forgiveness and a reward of great honour.
12. Surely We alone raise the dead alive. And We are writing down (the deeds) which they have sent forward and their effects (that are left behind). And We have encompassed everything in the illumining Book (al-Lawh al-Mahfuz).
13. And (in story-telling style) narrate to them the example of the people of a city (Antioch – an ancient city in North Syria), when there came to them some Messengers.
14. When (at first) We sent to them two Messengers, they rejected them both. Then We reinforced (them) with a third (Messenger). Then the three of them said: ‘Surely we have been sent to you.’
15. (The people of the city) said: ‘You are but human beings like us, and the Most Kind Lord has not sent down anything. You are only lying.’
16. (The Messengers) said: ‘Our Lord knows that assuredly we have been sent to you.
17. And there is no binding upon us except to communicate the message expressly.’
18. (The people of the city) said: ‘An evil omen has reached us from you. If you do not desist, we shall certainly stone you and you will definitely suffer an agonizing punishment at our hands.’
19. (The Messengers) said: ‘Your evil omen is with you. Is it an evil omen that you are admonished? Nay, but you are a people who exceed limits.’
20. And a person came running from the farthest end of the city. He said: ‘O my people, follow the Messengers.
21. Follow those who do not ask from you any compensation and who are rightly guided.
22. And what is the matter with me that I should not worship Him Who has created me and to Him (all of) you will be returned?
23. Should I take such gods apart from Him (Allah) that if the Most Kind Lord intends to do me any harm, their intercession would not bring me any benefit, nor would they be able to rescue me?
24. Then, certainly I would be in open error.
25. Surely, I have believed in your Lord, so listen to me (attentively).’
26. (The disbelievers martyred him; then it) was said (to him): ‘(Come,) enter Paradise.’ He said: ‘Alas! Would that my people knew,
27. That my Lord has forgiven me and put me among the honoured and near ones.’
28. And, after him, We did not send any army (of angels) from the heaven to his people, nor were We to send down (angels to destroy them).
29. (Their torment) was nothing but a Mighty Blast, and there were they put out (dead like charred coal).
30. Ah! Woe to (these) servants! Never did a Messenger come to them but they used to mock him.
31. Have they not seen how many communities We destroyed before them, and that now they will not return to them,
32. But that all of them will be brought before Our Presence?
33. And a sign for them is the dead earth to which We gave life, and We brought forth from it (grain); then they eat of it.
34. And We produced in it gardens of date-palms and grapes, and also caused some springs as well to gush forth in it,
35. So that they may eat of its fruits. And it is not their hands that made it. Do they not thank (even) then?
36. Glory be to Him Who created everything in pairs of those the earth grows and of themselves as well and, (moreover,) of the things they do not know.
37. And (also) a sign for them is the night: (how) We draw the day out from it! So then they are left in darkness!
38. And the sun is always rotating (non-stop) for its appointed destination. It is a measure fixed by Almighty, All-Knowing (Lord).
39. And We have also appointed stages (of motion and rotation) of the moon till (its appearance to the dwellers of the earth wanes to) the semblance of an old dry branch of a palm-tree.
40. Neither can the sun (deviate from its orbit and) overtake the moon nor can the night precede the day and all (the stars and planets) are moving in their (respective) orbits.
41. And a Sign for them is (also) that We boarded their fathers (the Children of Adam) into the laden Ark of (Nuh [Noah] and saved them).
42. And like this (Ark) We made for them (many other means of transport) which they ride.
43. And if We intend We drown them. Then, there will not be any to respond to their cry, nor will they be saved anyway,
44. Except for Our Mercy and (this) provision is for an appointed term.
45. And when it is said to them: ‘Fear that (torment) which is before you and which is behind you so that you may be shown Mercy.’
46. And not a Sign of the Signs of their Lord comes to them but they turn away from it.
47. And when it is said to them: ‘Spend (in the way of Allah) of what Allah has given you,’ the disbelievers say to the believers: ‘Shall we feed that (poor) man whom, if Allah so willed, He would feed (Himself)?’ You are but (caught) in clear error.
48. And they say: ‘When will this promise (of the Last Hour) be fulfilled if you are truthful?’
49. They are simply waiting for a Mighty Blast which will seize them (all of sudden), and they will be disputing among themselves.
50. Then they will not be able to make a will or to return to their families.
51. And (when) the Trumpet will be blown (again) they will come out of the graves at once and run towards their Lord.
52. (Seeing the horrors of the Hour of Resurrection,) they will say: ‘Ah, woe to us! Who has raised us from our sleeping apartments? This (coming back to life) is the same that the Most Kind Lord promised and the Messengers spoke the Truth.’
53. This will only be a Mighty Blast. Then all of them will be brought to Our Presence straight away.
54. So today no soul will be wronged in the least. Nor will you be rewarded except for the deeds you used to do.
55. Surely the residents of Paradise will be rejoicing today (in their) favourite pastime pursuits (like spiritual visits, entertainments, sessions of hymns and spiritual musical performance and other favours).
56. They and their wives will be reclining on raised couches under the deep calming shades.
57. There they will be provided with fruits (of every kind) and will find (available) everything they will solicit.
58. ‘Peace (be upon you)!’ (This) greeting will be conveyed (to them) from the Ever-Merciful Lord.
59. ‘And, O evildoers, get aside (from the righteous) this Day.
60. O Children of Adam! Did I not take this covenant from you not to worship Satan; no doubt he is your open enemy;
61. And that you keep worshipping Me alone? That is the straight path.
62. And surely he led great many of you astray, so had you not any wisdom?
63. This is the same Hell that was being promised to you.
64. Enter this Hell today, for you kept disbelieving.’
65. Today We shall seal their mouths, and their hands will speak to Us, and their feet will bear witness to the deeds which they used to earn.
66. And if We had so willed, We would have obliterated the very marks of their eyes. Then if they would have run on the path, how could they have seen?
67. And if We had so intended, We would have defaced them in their places. Then they would have power neither to go forward nor to turn back.
68. And someone whom We give long life, We cause him to degenerate (towards childhood and debility) in strength and disposition. So, do they not have sense?
69. And We have not taught him (the Holy Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him]) composing poetry, nor does it befit his dignity. This (Book) is but direction and guidance and the illumining Qur’an,
70. So that it may warn the one who is alive and the word of judgment may be proved against the disbelievers.
71. Have they not seen that We created for them cattle out of the (Creation) We made with Our Mighty Hand; so they are their owners?
72. And We subjected those (cattle) to them. So some of them are their riding animals, and they eat some of them.
73. And there are other benefits and drinks in them as well for them. Then why they do not give thanks?
74. And they have made idols their gods other than Allah with the hope that they will be helped.
75. These idols are incapable of helping them. And these (disbelievers and polytheists) will be an army of these (idols) that will be brought (into Hell together).
76. So let not what they utter hurt you. Surely We know whatever they hide and whatever they make public.
77. Has man not seen that We have created him from a sperm drop? Even then, he has become an open adversary.
78. And he (himself) puts forth examples for Us and has forgotten (the truth of) his creation. He says: ‘Who will give life to bones when they will have been decomposed?’
79. Say: ‘He Who created them the first time will give them life. And He knows best every Creation,
80. He Who produces fire for you out of the green tree so now you kindle fire with the same!
81. And has He Who created the heavens and the earth not the power to create the like of them (again)?’ Yes indeed! And He is the Supreme Creator, All-Knowing.
82. His Command (of creation) is only that when He intends (to create) something, He says to it: ‘Be,’ so it instantly becomes (existent or visible and continues becoming).
83. So, Glory be to Him in Whose Hand (Power and Control) is the Sovereignty over everything and to Him you will be returned.

THE VIRTUE

1. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘Surely everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. I would love that it be in the heart of every person of my people’[Bazzar]. (S.Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Tafsir-al-Sabuni Vol.2)

2. The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘Whoever recites Yasin once Allah will record the reward of reciting the Qur’an ten times.’[Maqal, Tirmidhi 2812/A & Dhahabi]

3. It has been reported by Aisha (radiAllahu anha)that the Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said that there is a surah in the Qur’an that intercedes for its reciter and forgive its listener. Know! It is Surah Yasin. (It is called ‘Mu’amma’ in the Torah.) It was enquired, what is Mu’amma? The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wasalam) said, ‘it embraces the person with the goodness of this world and removes the dismay of the Hereafter’[Hashiya of Tafsir Jalalalayn , pg 368].

4. The Prophet said, ‘Whoever recited Surah Yasin in the night seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah would forgive him’[Ibn Hibban, Darimi 3283/A, Abu Yala, Tabarani, Baihaqi & Ibn Mardawaih]

5. Ma`qil ibn Yasar (Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Messenger of Allah (Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, his family, companions, and followers) said,”Ya Sin is the heart of the Qur’an. No one reads it intending thereby Allah and the Next Abode except that Allah forgives them. Recite it for your deceased ones.” [Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, Nasa'i (this wording is his), and Hakim, who deemed it rigorously authenticated (sahih)]

6. Imam Ghazali explained that this is because soundness of faith rests on acknowledging Resurrection and Judgment, and Surat Ya Sin details this in the most emphatic of ways. Imam Fakhr al-Din al-Razi concurred.

7. Imam Tibi explained in his commentary on Mishkat al-Masabih that Surat Ya Sin was called ‘the Heart of the Qur ‘an ‘ because of what it contains of overwhelming proofs, decisive signs, subtle spiritual meanings, eloquent admonition, and stern warnings.
