as rendered by Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli

Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah The Thunder(ar-Ra`d)
---
13:1 Alif 'A', Lam 'L', Mim 'M', Ra 'R'. These are the verses of the Book; and that which has been revealed to you from your Lord is the Truth, but most people do not believe.
13:2 Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars which you (can) see, then He established Himself on 'Arsh (the Throne of authority) and subjected the sun and the moon, each one runs unto an appointed term. He directs the affair (of existence) . He explains the signs (in detail) so that you may be certain of the meeting with your Lord.
13:3 And He it is Who spread the earth and placed mountains and streams in it and inserted in it two pairs of the each kind of fruit. He covers the day with the night. Certainly, there are signs in these matters for a people who reflect.
13:4 And in the earth there are tracts, side by side, and gardens of (
13:5 And if you do wonder, then wondrous is their sayings: ' What, when we turn into dust, Will we then surly be in a new creation ' They are those who disbelieve in their Lord and these shall have chains on their necks, and they are the people of the Fire, abiding therein for ever. '
13:6 And they ask you to hasten on the evil (the chastisement) before the good while there have been exemplary punishments before them. And verily, your Lord is full of forgiveness for people despite their injustice; and verily your Lord is strict in retribution.
13:7 And those who disbelieve say: 'Why has there not been sent down a sign to him from his Lord (O' Prophet!) You are only a Warner, and there is a guide for every people.
13:8 Allah knows what every female carries (in her womb) and what the wombs absorb and (that) in which they increase, and there is a measure with Him of everything.
13:9 He knows the unseen and the seen, He is the Great, the Most High.
13:10 It is alike (for Him) whether any of you conceals his speech or speaks openly, and whether he hides himself by night or he who exposes himself during day- time.
13:11 There are (angels) in succession, before him and behind him, who protect him by Allah's command. Verily, Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition. And if Allah intends evil upon a people, there is no turning it back; and they have, apart from Him, no protector.
13:12 It is He Who shows you the lightning for fear and hope and produces heavy clouds.
13:13 And The thunder glorifies Him with His praise, and the angels, too, in awe of Him; and He sends the thunderbolts so as to smite with them whomever He pleases, while they dispute about Allah, and He is mighty in wrath.
13:14 To Him (alone) is the call of Truth; and those to whom they call, besides Him, will answer them nothing, but like one who stretches his two hands towards the water so that it may reach his mouth, while it does not reach it. And the prayer of disbelievers is only in error
13:15 And whoever is in the skies and on the earth prostrates for Allah willingly or unwillingly, and (so do) their shadows in the mornings and the evenings.
13:16 Say: 'Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth ' Say: 'Allah'. (Then) say: 'Why is it that you have taken guardians other than Him who own no profit and loss for themselves ' Say: 'Are the blind and the eyed equal Or are the darknesses and light identical Or have they set up partners for Allah who have created (something) like His creation, so that creation is all alike to them ' Say: 'Allah is the Creator of everything, and He is the One, the All- Dominant'.
13:17 He sent down water from the sky, then rivers flew according to their capacity and the floodwater carried along a swelling foam, and from metals, which they melt with fire so as to make an ornament or goods, arises a foam similar to it. Thus does Allah illustrate the Truth and falsehood; then as for the foam passes away as a worthless thing, and what is beneficial for people remains on the earth. Thus Allah sets forth the parables.
13:18 For those (people) who accepted their Lord, it is the best (reward) . But those who did not accept Him, even if they were to have all that is on the earth and the like of it, they would certainly offer it as ransom. It is they for whom the reckoning will be terrible and their abode will be Hell and what an awful place it is!
13:19 Is he who knows that what is revealed to you from your Lord is the Truth, like the one who is blind Indeed, only the possessors of intellects take admonition,
13:20 Those who fulfill the covenant of Allah and do not break the pledge.
13:21 And those who join what Allah has commanded to be joined and they fear their Lord and dread the terrible reckoning.
13:22 And those who patiently persevere, seeking the countenance of their Lord, and establish prayer, and spend of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, and they avert evil with good; theirs shall be the Ultimate abode
13:23 Gardens of Eternity, they shall enter therein and also the righteous from among their fathers, their spouses, and their children, and unto whom the angels will enter from every gate'.
13:24 Peace (be) upon you (saying) that you persevered in patience! (And now) how excellent is the Ultimate Abode.
13:25 And there are those who break the covenant of Allah after its confirmation and cut asunder what Allah has commanded to be joined, and make mischief in the earth; they, theirs shall be the curse and theirs shall be the evil abode.
13:26 Allah enlarges the sustenance for whomever he pleases and straitens (it for whomever He wishes) and they rejoice in the life of the world, while the life of the world beside the Hereafter is naught but a temporary enjoyment.
13:27 And those who disbelieve say: 'Why has a sign not been sent down upon him from his Lord ' Say: 'Verily Allah leaves to stray whomever He wills and guides unto Himself whomever turns (to Him in repentance) '.
13:28 (The guided are) those who believe and their hearts are set at rest by the remembrance of Allah. Behold! By Allah's remembrance (only) the hearts are set at rest.
13:29 Those who believe and do righteous deeds; joy is for them, and a goodly (final) return.
13:30 Thus did We send you among a nation before whom (other) nations have (come and) passed away, in order that you might recite to them whatever We have revealed to you, whereas they reject the Beneficent (Allah) . Say: 'He is my Lord, there is no god but He; on Him only I rely, and unto Him is my return.
13:31 And if there were a Qur'an by which the mountains were moved or the earth were cloven asunder with it, or the dead were made to speak thereby, (still they would not believe) . But the affair is Allah's altogether. Have not those who believe yet known that if Allah had willed He would certainly have guided all the people ? And (as for) those who disbelieve, there will not cause to afflict them because of what they do a calamity, or it will alight close to their habitation, until Allah's promise comes. Verily Allah will not fail the tryst.
13:32 And messengers before you were certainly mocked at, but I gave respite to those who disbelieved, then I seized them (in My Wrath) ; then (see) how was My retribution
13:33 Is He then Who watches every soul as to what it earns (like the idols) And yet they ascribe partners to Allah. Say: 'Name them! Do you inform Him of something (partners) He does not know in the earth, or is it (just) a show of words ' Rather, to those who disbelieve their devising are made to appear fair seeming, and they are kept back from the (right) path; and whomever Allah leaves to stray, for him there will be no guide.
13:34 There is chastisement for them in the life of the world, and the chastisement of the hereafter is certainly more grievous, and for them shall not be against (the Wrath of) Allah any protector.
13:35 The likeness of the Garden (of bliss) which the pious are promised, (is such that) beneath it rivers flow, its fruits and its shades are everlasting. This is the End of those who keep from evil, and the End of the unbelievers is the Fire.
13:36 And those people to whom We have given the Book will rejoice in what has been sent down to you. And of the clans are some who deny a part of it. Say: 'Verily, I am commanded to worship Allah and not to associate (aught) with Him. Unto Him (only) I invite (you) , and unto Him is my return'.
13:37 37 And thus have We sent it (the Qur'an) (as a true) authority in the Arabic, and if you follow their low desires after what has come to you of knowledge, there shall not be for you against Allah any guardian or a protector.
13:38 And indeed We sent Messengers before you, and appointed for them wives and children; and it was not for any Messenger to bring a sign (miracle) , but by Allah's permission. For every term there is a book prescribed.
13:39 Allah effaces out whatever He pleases and He confirms (similarly) , and with Him is the Mother (Basic Source) of the Book.
13:40 And We will either let you see part of what We promise them or cause you to die, for your duty is only to make (the Message) reach them, while (calling them) to account is on Us.
13:41 Do they not see that We come unto the earth and reduce it from its sides And (were) Allah commands, there is no reverser for His command, and He is swift in reckoning.
13:42 And indeed those before them devised, but the devising altogether is Allah's; He knows what every soul earns, and the unbelievers soon will know for whom is the Ultimate abode.
13:43 And those who disbelieve say: 'You are not a messenger'. Say: Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you and he with whom is the knowledge of the Book.
