The summary /theme of the Surah Az-Zumar: 

It is primarily about calling people to monotheism and sincerity in worship in Surah Zumar. As the surah begins, it emphasizes the benefits of monotheism and Allah not having any sons. It asks the Prophet to purify his religion and not to worship the polytheist gods.

Lesson learned from Az-Zumar: 

  1. No soul will carry the burden of another on the Day of Qiyāmah.  
  2. Generally, when a human is afflicted with difficulty, he/she turns to Allāh, but when they then enjoy a blessing, they forget their turning to Allāh.  
  3. Ignorant and knowledgeable people can never be equal.  
  4. Allāh promises those who adopt taqwā and do good, goodness in this world as well as the Hereafter  
  5. None except Allāh can save those who have been doomed to the Fire 
  6. When those who fear Allāh hear the Qur’ān, they tremble, and their hearts soften and incline towards Allāh’s remembrance.  
  7. There is no greater oppressor than the one who attributes falsehood to Allāh, and denies the truth when it comes to him.  
  8. Is Allāh not sufficient for His slave?  
  9. If the oppressors had the option to give the equivalent of twice the world and everything that it contains in return for safety from the severe punishment of the Hereafter, they would give it. However, they shall face such punishment that they had not anticipated in the slightest.  
  10.  Allāh forgives all sins; let not those who have sinned excessively lose hope in Allāh’s Mercy.  
  11. Turn to Allāh and submit to Him before it’s too late, and His punishment befalls you. You will then be totally helpless.  
  12. Those who lied against Allāh will find their faces blackened on the Day of Qiyāmah.  
  13. On the Day of Judgement, each soul shall be recompensed for its deeds in full.  
  14. When the people of Jahannam shall be taken to Jahannam, the doors will be flung open for them to enhance their horrific experience.  
  15. When the people of Jannah will be led to Jannah, its doors will already be open to receive them with honour.

بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

 

تَنزِيلُ ٱلۡكِتَٰبِ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡعَزِيزِ ٱلۡحَكِيمِ
Transliteration:( Tanzeelul Kitaabi minal laahil 'Azeezil Hakeem )

1. The revelation of the book is from Allah, the Most Dignified (2), the Most Wise.

إِنَّآ أَنزَلۡنَآ إِلَيۡكَ ٱلۡكِتَٰبَ بِٱلۡحَقِّ فَٱعۡبُدِ ٱللَّهَ مُخۡلِصٗا لَّهُ ٱلدِّينَ
Transliteration:( Innaaa anzalnaaa ilaikal Kitaaba bilhaqqi fa'budil laaha mukhlisal lahud deen )

2. Surely it is We Who have revealed this Book to you with truth(3). Therefore, worship(4) Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.

أَلَا لِلَّهِ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلۡخَالِصُۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُواْ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ أَوۡلِيَآءَ مَا نَعۡبُدُهُمۡ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَآ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ زُلۡفَىٰٓ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَحۡكُمُ بَيۡنَهُمۡ فِي مَا هُمۡ فِيهِ يَخۡتَلِفُونَۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهۡدِي مَنۡ هُوَ كَٰذِبٞ كَفَّارٞ
Transliteration:( Alaa lillaahid deenul khaalis; wallazeenat takhazoo min dooniheee awliyaaa'a maa na'buduhum illaa liyuqar riboonaaa ilal laahi zulfaa; innal laaha yahkumu baina hum fee maa hum feehi yakhtalifoon; innal laaha laa yahdee man huwa kaazibun kaffaar )

3.Remember that sincere obedience (5) exclusively to Allah alone. And those who have taken protectors (6) other than Him say: "We worship (7) them only that they may bring us nearer to Allah. Certainly, Allah. (8) will decide among them concerning that wherein they differ (9). Surely, Allah does not guide him who is an ungrateful (10) liar.

لَّوۡ أَرَادَ ٱللَّهُ أَن يَتَّخِذَ وَلَدٗا لَّٱصۡطَفَىٰ مِمَّا يَخۡلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُۚ سُبۡحَٰنَهُۥۖ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡوَٰحِدُ ٱلۡقَهَّارُ
Transliteration:( Law araadal laahu aiyattakhiza waladal lastafaa mimmaa yakhluqu maa yashaaa'; Subhaanahoo Huwal laahul Waahidul Qahhaar )

4. If Allah intended to take a son for himself. He would have chosen (11) whom He had willed out of His creatures, and Sanctified is He. He is Allah, the only One, the Most Dominant (12).

خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ بِٱلۡحَقِّۖ يُكَوِّرُ ٱلَّيۡلَ عَلَى ٱلنَّهَارِ وَيُكَوِّرُ ٱلنَّهَارَ عَلَى ٱلَّيۡلِۖ وَسَخَّرَ ٱلشَّمۡسَ وَٱلۡقَمَرَۖ كُلّٞ يَجۡرِي لِأَجَلٖ مُّسَمًّىۗ أَلَا هُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡغَفَّـٰرُ
Transliteration:( Khalaqas samaawaati wal arda bilhaqq; yukawwirul laila 'alan nahaari wa yukawwirun nahaara 'alaal laili wa sakhkharash shamsa walqamara kulluny yajree li ajalim musammaa; alaa Huwal 'Azeezul Ghaffaar )

5.He created the heavens and the earth with truth (13). He makes the night cover the day and He makes the day cover the night (14); and He has employed the sun and the moon into service. Each moves on its course to an appointed time. Do (15) you hear? He is the Most Exalted in Power, the Most Forgiving (16).

خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفۡسٖ وَٰحِدَةٖ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنۡهَا زَوۡجَهَا وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلۡأَنۡعَٰمِ ثَمَٰنِيَةَ أَزۡوَٰجٖۚ يَخۡلُقُكُمۡ فِي بُطُونِ أُمَّهَٰتِكُمۡ خَلۡقٗا مِّنۢ بَعۡدِ خَلۡقٖ فِي ظُلُمَٰتٖ ثَلَٰثٖۚ ذَٰلِكُمُ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّكُمۡ لَهُ ٱلۡمُلۡكُۖ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَۖ فَأَنَّىٰ تُصۡرَفُونَ
Transliteration:( Khalaqakum min nafsinw waahidatin summa ja'ala minhaa zawjahaa wa anzala lakum minal-an'aami samaani yata azwaaj; yakhlu qukum fee butooni ummahaatikum khalqam mim ba'di khalqin fee zulumaatin salaas; zaalikumul laahu Rabbukum lahul mulk; laaa ilaaha illaa Huwa fa annaa tusrafoon )

6.He has created you from a single soul (17), then He created its mates (18) from that and sent down for you eight species of cattle in pairs (19), He creates you in the wombs of your mothers, creation after creation (20) in threefold darkness (21) (of the womb). This is Allah your Lord. He is the authority (22) to be worshipped besides (23) Him. Then where are you turning away?

إِن تَكۡفُرُواْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَنِيٌّ عَنكُمۡۖ وَلَا يَرۡضَىٰ لِعِبَادِهِ ٱلۡكُفۡرَۖ وَإِن تَشۡكُرُواْ يَرۡضَهُ لَكُمۡۗ وَلَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٞ وِزۡرَ أُخۡرَىٰۚ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُم مَّرۡجِعُكُمۡ فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمۡ تَعۡمَلُونَۚ إِنَّهُۥ عَلِيمُۢ بِذَاتِ ٱلصُّدُورِ
Transliteration:( In takfuroo fa innal laaha ghaniyyun 'ankum; wa laa yardaa li'ibaadihil kufra wa in tashkuroo yardahu lakum; wa laa taziru waaziratunw wizra ukhraa; summa ilaa Rabikum marji'ukum fa-yunabbi'ukum bimaa kuntum ta'maloon; innahoo 'aleemum bizaatissudoor )

7.If you ungrateful, then surely, Allah is Self-Sufficient (24), and He does not like the infidels (25) amongst His devotees. But if you are grateful (26) to Him, then He likes it in you. And no soul shall bear the burden of another (27). Then to your Lord is your return. And He will inform you of what you used to do. Undoubtedly, He Knows well the secrets of the hearts.

۞وَإِذَا مَسَّ ٱلۡإِنسَٰنَ ضُرّٞ دَعَا رَبَّهُۥ مُنِيبًا إِلَيۡهِ ثُمَّ إِذَا خَوَّلَهُۥ نِعۡمَةٗ مِّنۡهُ نَسِيَ مَا كَانَ يَدۡعُوٓاْ إِلَيۡهِ مِن قَبۡلُ وَجَعَلَ لِلَّهِ أَندَادٗا لِّيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِهِۦۚ قُلۡ تَمَتَّعۡ بِكُفۡرِكَ قَلِيلًا إِنَّكَ مِنۡ أَصۡحَٰبِ ٱلنَّارِ
Transliteration:( Wa izaa massal insaana durrun da'aa Rabbahoo muneeban ilaihi summa izaa khawwalahoo ni'matam minhu nasiya maa kaana yad'ooo ilaihi min qablu wa ja'ala lillaahi andaadal liyudilla 'ansabeelih; qul tamatta' bikufrika qaleelan innaka min Ashaabin Naar; )

8. And when any trouble (28) befalls a person, he calls upon his Lord, leaning towards Him. Then when He grants him any favour from Himself, such a person forgets what he had prayed for before (29). And the initiates to assign equals to (30) Allah that he may lead (mankind) on the wrong path, away from His path. Please declare: "Enjoy life a little (31) with your infidelity. Certainly you are the inhabitants of Hell".

أَمَّنۡ هُوَ قَٰنِتٌ ءَانَآءَ ٱلَّيۡلِ سَاجِدٗا وَقَآئِمٗا يَحۡذَرُ ٱلۡأٓخِرَةَ وَيَرۡجُواْ رَحۡمَةَ رَبِّهِۦۗ قُلۡ هَلۡ يَسۡتَوِي ٱلَّذِينَ يَعۡلَمُونَ وَٱلَّذِينَ لَا يَعۡلَمُونَۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُوْلُواْ ٱلۡأَلۡبَٰبِ
Transliteration:( Amman huwa qaanitun aanaaa'al laili saajidanw wa qaaa'imai yahzarul Aakhirata wa yarjoo rahmata Rabbih; qul hal yastawil lazeena ya'lamoona wallazeena laa ya'lamoon; innamaa yatazakkaru ulul albaab (section 1) )

9.Can someone who remains in the hours of the night in devotion (32), prostrating and standing in fear of the Hereafter and hoping for the Mercy of his Lord, be like the one who is disobedient? Please declare: "Are those who know equal to those who do not know(33) ? Surely, only those understand who are wise(34)

قُلۡ يَٰعِبَادِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ رَبَّكُمۡۚ لِلَّذِينَ أَحۡسَنُواْ فِي هَٰذِهِ ٱلدُّنۡيَا حَسَنَةٞۗ وَأَرۡضُ ٱللَّهِ وَٰسِعَةٌۗ إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى ٱلصَّـٰبِرُونَ أَجۡرَهُم بِغَيۡرِ حِسَابٖ
Transliteration:( Qul yaa 'ibaadil lazeena aamanut taqoo Rabbakum; lillazeena ahsanoo fee haazihid dunyaa hasanah; wa ardul laahi waasi'ah; innamaa yuwaffas saabiroona ajrahum bighayri hisab )
