The great sûrah: 6. al-An'âm


Staff member
Beautiful and important Sûrah "al-An'âm":
about the Revelation of Allaah, message of the Qur'ân,
prophecy of Muhammad, situation of the disbelievers,
the Day of Judgement,...


Beautiful strong recitation: Samîr al-'Umrân (recording of 1992, Khobar, Saudi Arabia)

1. All praises and thanks be to Allah, Who (Alone) created the heavens and the earth, and originated the darkness and the light, yet those who disbelieve hold others as equal with their Lord.

2. He it is Who has created you from clay, and then has decreed a stated term (for you to die). And there is with Him another determined term (for you to be resurrected), yet you doubt (in the Resurrection).

3. And He is Allah (to be worshipped Alone) in the heavens and on the earth, He knows what you conceal and what you reveal, and He knows what you earn (good or bad).

4. And never an Ayah (sign) comes to them from the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord, but that they have been turning away from it.

5. Indeed, they rejected the truth (the Qur'an and Muhammad
)when it came to them, but there will come to them the news of that (the torment) which they used to mock at.

6. Have they not seen how many a generation before them We have destroyed whom We had established on the earth such as We have not established you? And We poured out on them rain from the sky in abundance, and made the rivers flow under them. Yet We destroyed them for their sins, and created after them other generations.

They deny the Revelation, mock the Messengers, while the Truth is clear!
Sûrah al-An'âm 6: 7-11

7. And even if We had sent down unto you (O Muhammad) a Message written on paper so that they could touch it with their hands, the disbelievers would have said: "This is nothing but obvious magic!"

8. And they say: "Why has not an angel been sent down to him?" Had We sent down an angel, the matter would have been judged at once, and no respite would be granted to them.

9. And had We appointed him an angel, We indeed would have made him a man, and We would have certainly caused them confusion in a matter which they have already covered with confusion (i.e. the Message of Prophet Muhammad).

10. And indeed (many) Messengers were mocked before you, but their scoffers were surrounded by the very thing that they used to mock at.

11. Say (O Muhammad): "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those who rejected truth."


The Quran is the holy book which Muslims recite and turn to for guidance in all features of their lives. Its verses have continued intact since their original revelation by God in the 7th century.
