al-An`am (Cattle, Livestock)
as rendered by Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli

Sayyed Abbas Sadr-Ameli rendition of Surah Cattle, Livestock(al-An`am)
6:1 (All) praise belongs to Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth and appointed darkness and light; yet those who disbelieve hold (others) as equal with their Lord.
6:2 He it is Who created you from clay, then decreed a term (for your life) and the term is fixed with Him, yet still you doubt.
6:3 And He is Allah in the heavens and in the earth ! He knows your secret and your open, and He knows what you earn.
6:4 There never came unto them any Sign from the Signs of their Lord but they turned away from it.
6:5 So they indeed belied the truth when it came unto them, therefore very soon the (bitter) tidings will come to them of what they used to mock at.
6:6 Have they not considered how many a generation We destroyed before them, whom We had established in the earth (to the extent) that We have not established you, and We sent abundant (water down from) the sky upon them and made the rivers flow beneath them ? Yet We destroyed them for their sins, and raised up after them another generation.
6:7 And had We sent down unto you a book written on a paper, so that they touched it with their hands, certainly (still) the disbelievers would have said: ' This is nought but manifest sorcery.'
6:8 And they said: ' Why has not an angel been sent down to him ? And if We had sent down an angel, the matter would have certainly been determined, and then they would not be granted any respite.
6:9 And had We appointed him (Our Messenger) an angel, We would certainly have made him as a man, and We would certainly have made confused to them what they (now) make confused.
6:10 And certainly some Messengers were mocked at, before you, then the retribution which they used to ridicule fell on them.
6:11 Say: ' Travel in the earth, then see what has been the end of the rejecters '.
6:12 Say: ' To whom belongs what is in the heavens and the earth ? Say: ' To Allah, He has prescribed mercy on Himself. He will surely gather you on the Resurrection Day, of which there is no doubt. Those who have lost their own selves, they will not believe.'
6:13 And to Him belongs whatever dwells in the night and the day; and He is All-hearing, All-Knowing '.
6:14 Say: ' Shall I take a guardian besides Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, and He feeds (others) and is not (Himself) fed ? ' Say : ' I have been commanded to be the first who submits himself '. And be not you (O' Muhammad) of the polytheists.
6:15 Say: ' Verily I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the retribution of a grievous Day '.
6:16 Whoever is spared of it (the Divine retribution) on that Day, He has certainly been merciful to him, and that is the manifest triumph.
6:17 And if Allah touches you with affliction, none can remove it but He; and if He touches you with good, then He is All-Powerful over all things.
6:18 And He is the Omnipotent over His servants, and He is the All-Wise, the All-Aware.
6:19 Say: ' What thing is the greatest in testimony ? ' Say: ' Allah ! He is witness between me and you, and this Qur'an has been revealed to me that I may warn you thereby, and whomever it reaches. Do you indeed testify that there are other gods with Allah ? ' Say: ' I do not testify '. Say : ' He is only One God, and verily I am quit of that which you associate (with Him) '.
6:20 Those whom We have given The Book (the Jews and Christians) recognize him (Muhammad) as they recognize their sons. Yet those who have lost their own selves, they will not believe.
6:21 And who is more unjust than him who forges a lie against Allah or denies His Signs; verily the unjust will not succeed.
6:22 And on the Day We will muster them all together, then We will say to those who associated partners (to Allah) : ' Where are your associate-gods whom you were asserting ? '
6:23 Then their excuse would be nothing but that they would say : 'By Allah, our Lord ! we were not polytheists '.
6:24 See how they (the polytheists) lie against their own selves, and that whichthey were forging has passed away from them.
6:25 And of them there are some who hearken to you, and We have laid veils upon their hearts lest they understand it, and in their ears a heaviness; and (even) if they see every sign they will not believe in it, so that when they come to you they dispute with you, those who disbelieve say : ' This is naught but the legends of the ancients '.
6:26 And they prohibit people from it, and themselves they keep afar from it, and they destroy none save themselves, while they are not aware.
6:27 And if you could see when they are stationed before the (Hell) Fire, then they say : 'Would that we might be returned, and we would not belie the Signs of our Lord, and we would be of the believers'.
6:28 Rather, what they used to hide before has (now) appeared to them; and even if they were returned, they would revert to what they were prohibited, and most certainly they are liars.
6:29 And they say : ' There is nothing save our life of the world and we shall not be resurrected '.
6:30 And if you could see when they are stationed before their Lord ! He will say: 'Is this not the truth ? ' They will say : 'Yes, by our Lord !' He will say : 'Taste you then the chastisement for what you used to disbelieve'.
6:31 They indeed are losers who deny the meeting with Allah until, when the hour comes on them all of a sudden, they will say : ' Alas for us, for what we neglected in it ! ' And they shall bear their burdens on their backs; now beware, evil is that which they bear !
6:32 And the life of the world is naught but play and pastime, and certainly the abode of the Hereafter is better for those who keep from evil; have you then no sense ?
6:33 Indeed We know that what they say surely grieves you. Yet verily it is not you (that) they belie, but the unjust deny the Signs of Allah.
6:34 Messengers indeed have been denied before you, but they were patient on being denied and hurt, until Our help came unto them; and there is none to change the words of Allah, and certainly there has come to you some information about the messengers.
6:35 And if their turning away is hard upon you, then if you can seek a hole into the earth, or a ladder to heaven, so that you bring them a sign (they will not believe) ; and had Allah willed, He would have gathered them all to the guidance; so be not you of the ignorants.
6:36 Only those accept who hearken, and (as for) the dead, Allah will raise them up; then unto Him they will be returned.
6:37 And they say: ' Why has not a Sign been sent down to him (Muhammad) from his Lord ? ' Say: ' Verily Allah is able to send down a Sign, but most of them do not know '.
6:38 And there is no creature (that walks) on the earth nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but they are communities the like of you. We have not neglected anything in the Book, then unto their Lord shall they (all) be mustered.
6:39 And those who belied Our Signs are deaf and dumb, in darkness; whomever Allah pleases He leads astray, and whomever He pleases, He sets him on a straight path.
6:40 Say: Have you considered if Allah's torment comes to you (in the world) or the Hour (of Resurrection) comes to you, will you supplicate any one other than Allah, if you are truthful ?
6:41 Rather upon Him you will call, and He removes that for which you supplicated Him, if He pleases, and you forget what you have associated (with Him) .
6:42 Indeed We sent (messengers) to nations before you, then We seized them with distress and affliction in order that they might humble themselves.
6:43 Why then did they not entreat when Our distress came to them ? But their hearts were hard, and Satan made all that they used to do seem fair unto them.
6:44 Then, when they forgot that which they had been admonished to, We opened for them the doors of all things (of enjoyments) , until when they rejoiced in what they were given, We seized them suddenly when, behold, they were in utter dispair.
6:45 So the people who were unjust were rooted out, and praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
6:46 Say: ' Have you considered if Allah takes away your hearing and your eyesight and seals on your hearts, which god other than Allah can give it back to you ? ' See you, how We repeat the Signs, yet they turn away.
6:47 Say: ' Have you considered if the punishment of Allah comes to you suddenly or openly, will anyone be destroyed but the unjust people '.
6:48 And We do not send the messengers but (as) announcers of good news and warners, then whoever believes and amends (himself) - no fear shall be upon them, nor shall they grieve.
6:49 And as for those who belie Our Signs, chastisement shall afflict them for what they were transgressing.
6:50 Say: (O' Our prophet !) ' I do not say to you that the treasures of Allah, are with me, nor do I know the Unseen, nor do I say to you that I am an angel. I do not follow but what is revealed to me.' Say: ' Are the blind and the seeing one equal ? Do you not then ponder ? '
6:51 And warn with it (the Qur'an) those who fear that they will be mustered unto their Lord; (for) there is not any guardian nor intercessor for them besides Him, so that they may guard themselves (against evil) .
6:52 And do not repel those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His countenance. Nothing of their account falls upon you nor anything of your account falls upon them, that you should repel them and thus become of the unjust.
6:53 And thus did We try some of them by others so that they (mockingly) say: 'Are these they upon whom Allah has favoured from among us ? ' Does not Allah know best the grateful ?
6:54 And when those who believe in Our Signs come to you, say: ' Peace be on you. Your Lord has prescribed mercy on Himself that whoever of you does evil in ignorance, and thereafter repents and amends (himself) , then verily He is forgiving, Merciful '.
6:55 And thus do We explain the Signs so that (the Truth be distinguished) and the way of the sinners be manifest.
6:56 Say: ' I am forbidden to worship those whom you call besides Allah', Say: ' I do not follow your low desires, for then indeed I should have gone astray and I will not be of the (rightly) guided.
6:57 Say: Verily I am (relying) on clear proof from my Lord, while you belied it; I have not with me that (chastisement) which you hasten for, the judgment is only Allah's; Who declares the truth and He is the best of deciders '.
6:58 Say: 'If that which you hasten for were with me, certainly the matter would be decided between you and me, and Allah knows best the unjust '.
6:59 And with Him are the keys of the Unseen. None but He knows them. And He knows whatever is in the land and the sea; and no leaf (of a tree) drops down but He knows it, nor is there a grain in the darkness of the earth nor anything wet or dry but it is (noted) in a clear Book.
6:60 And He it is Who takes your souls at night (in sleep) , and He knows what you commit in the day, then He raises you up therein that an appointed term may be accomplished, then unto Him is your return, then He will inform you of what you were doing.
6:61 And He is the Omnipotent over His servants, and He sends guardians (to watch) over you until when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take his soul and they never neglect.
6:62 Then they are returned unto Allah, their Maula (Master) , the Real One. Beware ! His (alone) is the Judgment (on that Day) , and He is the swiftest of reckoners.
6:63 Say : ' Who delivers you from the darkness of the land and the sea ? You call upon Him humbly and secretly, (saying) : If He delivers us from this (darkness) , certainly we shall be of the grateful ones '.
6:64 Say : ' Allah delivers you from them and from every affliction, then again you assign (Him) associates'.
6:65 Say: ' He is able to send forth upon you a chastisement, from above you or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you of different parties, and to make you taste the violence of (fighting) one another.' See how We repeat the Signs that they may understand.
6:66 And your people have belied it (the Qur'an) though it is the truth. Say: 'I am not a guard upon you '.
6:67 For every announcement there is a term and you will come to know soon.
6:68 And when you see those who cavil about Our Signs, turn away from them until they enter into (some) other topic. And if Satan causes you to forget, then, after recollection, do not sit with the unjust people.
6:69 And nothing of the reckoning of their (deed) shall be upon those who keep from evil, but a reminding (must be given) so that they, too, may keep from evil.
6:70 And leave those who have taken their religion for a play and pastime, and whom the life of this world has deluded, and admonish (them) by it (the Qur'an) lest a soul be destroyed for what it has earned. It shall not have besides Allah any guardian nor any intercessor, and though it offers every compensation it will not be accepted from it. Those are they who are given up to destruction for what they have earned. They will have a drink of boiling water and a painful chastisement for what they used to disbelieve.
6:71 Say: ' Shall we call, besides Allah, on that which neither profits nor harms us, and shall we be returned back on our heels after that Allah has guided us ? Like someone whom Satans have lured (and) bewildered in the earth, (while) he has companions who invite him to the guidance (saying) : ' Come unto us '. Say: ' Verily (it is) the guidance of Allah which is the (true) guidance, and we are commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds '.
6:72 And that 'Establish prayer and be in awe of Him, and it is He unto Whom you shall be mustered '.
6:73 And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth with the Truth; and the day He says ' Be! ' and, it is. His word is the Truth, and to Him belongs all sovereignty on the day, when the trumpet will be blown; knower of the Unseen and the visible, and He is the All-Wise, the All-Aware.
6:74 And (remember) when Abraham said to his father 'Azar: ' Do you take idols for gods ? Verily I see you and your people in manifest error '.
6:75 And thus did we show Abraham the dominions of the heavens and the earth and that he might be of those who are sure.
6:76 So when the night outspread over him, he saw a star. He said : ' This is my Lord.' But when it set, he said: ' I do not like the setting ones.
6:77 Then when he saw the moon uprising, he said: 'This is my Lord !' But when it set, he said : 'If my Lord does not guide me I shall surely be of the people gone astray.'
6:78 And when he saw the sun uprising, he said : 'This is my Lord; this is greater !' But when it set, he said : 'O my people ! surely I am quit of that you associate. (with Allah) '.
6:79 Verily I have turned my face (myself wholly) toward Him Who created the heavens and the earth, being upright, and I am not of the idolaters. (1)
6:80 And his people disputed with him. He (Abraham) said: ' Do you dispute with me about Allah while He has guided me ? And I do not fear of what you associate with Him; unless my Lord wishes for something. My Lord includes everything in His knowledge. Will you not then remember? '
6:81 And how should I fear what you have associated, while you do not fear that you have associated with Allah that for which He has not sent down any authority to you ? Which of the two parties has more right to security if you have any knowledge ?
6:82 Those who believe and do not cloack their Faith with iniquity, those are they for whom is security, and they are guided aright.
6:83 And such was Our argument which We gave to Abraham against his people. We raise up in degrees whom We please; verily your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
6:84 And We bestowed upon him (Abraham) (issues like) Isac and Jacob, each one We guided; and Noah We guided before; and of his seed David and Solomon, Job and Joseph, Moses and Aron (We appointed prophets) , and thus do We reward the doers of good.
6:85 And Zakariya and John and Jesus and Elias; each one (of them) was of the righteous.
6:86 And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot, and everyone (of them) did We prefer above all beings.
6:87 And from among their fathers and their descendants and their brethren, and We chose them and guided them into the straight way.
6:88 Such is the guidance of Allah; He guides by it whom He pleases of His servants; and if they were to associate others (with Him) , certainly what theywere doing would be vain for them.
6:89 These are they to whom We gave the Book, the authority and the prophethood; so if these (infidels) disbelieve in it, We have (already) entrusted with it a people who are not disbelievers in it.
6:90 These are they whom Allah has guided, therefore follow their guidance. Say (to people) : ' I ask you no wage for it (the prophecy) ; it is naught but a Reminder to the worlds
6:91 And they did not recognize Allah with the recognition due to Him when they said: ' Allah has not sent down anything to any human being.' Say : ' Who sent down the Book that was brought by Moses as a light and a guidance to men, which you put into papers, revealing (a part of) it and concealing much (of it) ; and (by means of which) you were taught what you did not know, (neither) you nor your fathers ? ' Say: ' Allah (has sent it down) ;' then leave them sporting in their vain discourses.
6:92 And this is a blessed Book, We have sent it down confirming that which has been before it, and that you may warn (the people of) the Mother City (Mecca) and those around her; and those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are careful of their prayers.
6:93 And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah, or says : 'It has been revealed to me,' while nothing has been revealed to him, and he who says : ' I will send down the like of what Allah has sent down'? And if you had seen when the unjust shall be in the agonies of death and the angels shall spread forth their hands, (saying) : 'Give up your souls ! Today you shall be recompensed with a disgracing chastisement for what you used to say against Allah other than the truth and (because) you used to behave with pride against His Signs.
6:94 And certainly you come to Us (bare and) alone as We created you at first, and you have left behind your backs all that We gave you, and We do not see with you your intercessors, those whom you imagined that they were, in you, the associates (of Allah) ; certainly the ties between you are (now) cut off and what you used to assert have gone away from you.
6:95 Verily Allah is the splitter of the grain and the (date) stone. He brings out the living from the dead and He is the bringer of the dead from the living. That is Allah ! How then are you perverted ?
6:96 He is the Cleaver of the Daybreak, and He has made the night for rest, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. That is the ordaining of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.
6:97 And it is He Who has set for you the stars, that by them you might be guided in the darkness of the land and the sea. We have explained Our Signs for a people who know.
6:98 And it is He Who has produced you from one person, then there is a place of sojourn and a provisional repository. We have explained Our Signs for a people who understand.
6:99 And He it is Who sends down water from the sky and thereby We bring forth the shoot of every growing thing, then from it We bring forth green (foliage) from which We produce grain piled up (in the ears) ; and of the palm-tree, of the sheaths of it, come forth clusters (of dates) within reach, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, alike and unalike. Look upon its fruit when it fructifies and ripens. Verily, there are signs in that for a people who believe.
6:100 And they set up the jinn associates with Allah, while He created them, and they falsely attributed to Him sons and daughters without knowledge. Glory be to Him, and highly Exalted is He above what they ascribe (to Him) .
6:101 (He is the) Diviser of the heavens and the earth ! How can He have a child while there is for Him no consort, and He created everything, and He is All-Knowing of all things ?
6:102 That is Allah your Lord, there is no god but He, the Creator of everything. Therefore worship Him, for He is Guardian over all things.
6:103 The eyes do not perceive Him, but He perceives the eyes, He is the All-Subtle, the All-Aware.
6:104 Certainly clear proofs have come to you from your Lord. Whoever therefore sees (with insight) , it is to his own gain, and whoever be blind, it is to his own loss; and I am not a keeper over you.
6:105 And thus do We repeat the Signs, that they may say (unto you) : ' You have studied ', and that We may make it clear to a people who know.
6:106 Follow what is revealed to you from your Lord; there is no god but He; and turn away from the polytheists.
6:107 And had Allah pleased, they would not have associated others (with Him) , and We have not made you a keeper over them, nor are you over them a guardian.
6:108 And do not abuse those whom they call upon besides Allah, or they will abuse Allah in revenge without any knowledge. Thus unto every nation have We made their behaviour seem fair. Then unto their Lord is their return, so He will inform them of what they used to do.
6:109 And they swore by Allah with the strongest of their oaths, that if a sign came to them they would most certainly believe in it. Say: ' Signs are only with Allah '. And what should make you know that when it comes they will not believe ?
6:110 And (because of pertinacities of infidels) We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not believe in it the first time; and We will leave them in their contumacy wandering blindly.
6:111 And even if We sent down the angels to them, and the dead spoke to them, and We mustered all things before them, (even then) they would not believe, unless Allah pleases; but most of them (deliberately) ignore.
6:112 And thus did We assign for every prophet an enemy, the satans from humans and jinn, who (secretly) inspire each other with flashy words to deceive (them) . And had your Lord pleased they would not have done it. (Allah's way of treatment is freedom of men) therefore, leave them with what they forge.
6:113 And (the result of those Satanic inspirations is) so that the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter, may incline to it, and that they may be well-pleased with it (the flashy words) , and that they may commit (the evil) they were committing.
6:114 (Say:) ' Shall I seek a judge other than Allah, while it is He Who has sent down to you the Book, (fully) explained ? And those whom We have given the Book know that it has been sent down from your Lord with the truth, so be not you of the doubters.
6:115 And perfected is the Word of your Lord in truth and justice; there is naught that can change His Words, and He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
6:116 And if you obey most of those in the earth, they will lead you astray from the way of Allah. They follow nothing but conjecture; and they do nothing but surmise.
6:117 Verily your Lord knows best those who stray from His way, and He (also) knows best those who are guided.
6:118 Therefore, eat (the meat) of that over which Allah's name has been mentioned, if you are believers in His Signs.
6:119 And what has happened to you that you do not eat (the meat) of that over which Allah's name has been mentioned, while He has (already) explained for you what He has forbidden unto you, except what you are compelled to (eat) ? And indeed many (people) mislead (others) by their desires, without any knowledge. Verily, your Lord knows best the transgressors.
6:120 And abandon outward sin and the inward one; verily those who commit sin soon shall be recompensed with what they used to commit.
6:121 And do not eat (anything) of that over which Allah's name has not been mentioned (at the time of slaughter) and that is indeed transgression, and verily the Satans inspire unto their friends to dispute with you, and if you obey them, you will indeed be polytheists, (too) .
6:122 Is he who was dead (with ignorance and polytheism) and we gave him life (by Our guidance) and provided him with a light by which he walks among the people, as one whose likeness is in the shadows (of ignorance and polytheism) and he cannot come forth from them ? Thus has been made fair seeming for the disbelievers what they were doing.
6:123 And thus We have appointed in every town its leading criminals that they may plot therein. Yet they do not plot except against their own selves but they are not aware.
6:124 And when a Sign (from Allah) comes to them, they say: ' Never will we believe until we are given the like of what was given to Allah's apostles. Allah knows best where to place His apostleship. Soon there shall befall those who are guilty humiliation from Allah and a severe punishment because of the plots they used to devise.
6:125 Therefore, whomever Allah intends that He should guide him aright, He opens his breast to Islam; and whomever He intends that He should cause him to send astray, He makes his breast narrow and straitened as if he were ascending upwards into the sky. Thus does Allah lay abomination on those who do not believe.
6:126 And this is the path of your Lord; straight. Indeed We have explained the Signs for people who take admonition.
6:127 For them shall be the abode of peace with their Lord, and He is their Guardian because of what they used to do.
6:128 And on the day He musters all together, (addressing the Satans of jinn, He says:) ' O' assembly of jinn ! you took away a great part of mankind.' And their friends from among the human beings will say : ' O' our Lord ! Some of us profited by others and we have reached our term which You had assigned for us.' He will say : 'The fire is your abode, to remain in it (forever) , except that Allah wills (to forgive some of you) '. Verily your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
6:129 And thus do We make some of the iniquitous to befriend others on account of what they used to earn.
6:130 ' O' assembly of the jinn and mankind ! Did there not come to you messengers from yourselves, recounting to you My Signs and warning you of the meeting of this Day ? ' They will say : 'We bear witness against ourselves.' And the life of this world deceived them, and they will bear witness against their own selves that they were (constantly) disbelievers.
6:131 This is because your Lord would never destroy the towns unjustly while their people were negligent.
6:132 And for all (men) there are ranks in accordance with what they have done, and your Lord is not heedless of what they do.
6:133 And your Lord is Self-Sufficient, the Lord of Mercy, if He pleases, He may take you off, and make whom He pleases successors after you, just as He produced you from the descendants of other people.
6:134 Verily what you are promised, will certainly come, and you cannot make (Allah) helpless (to flee from His retribution) .
6:135 Say: ' O' my people ! act according to your ability; verily I too act. Then soon you will know for whom will be the (good) end of the abode. Surely the unjust will not be felicitous '.
6:136 And they (the polytheists) assigned to Allah out of what He has created of tilth and cattle, a portion, and said : 'This is for Allah', according to their assertion, 'And this is for our associates.' Then what is for their associates does not reach Allah, and what is for Allah reaches their associates. (How) evil is the judgement that they make !
6:137 And thus their associates have made fair seeming to most of the polytheists the killing of their children, that they may destroy them and confound their religion for them. And had Allah pleased they would not have done so. Therefore, leave them with what they forge.
6:138 And they said: ' These are cattle and tillage prohibited. None may eat them except whom we please' - so they assert - 'and (there are) cattle whose backs are forbidden and cattle over which they do not mention Allah's name' - forging a lie against Him. Soon He will requite them for what they used to forge.
6:139 And they said: ' What is in the bellies of these cattle is exclusively for our males and forbidden to our wives. But if it be born dead, then all of them are partners in it. Soon He will requite them for their attributing (falsehood to Him) . Verily He is All-Wise, All-Knowing.
6:140 Indeed are lost those who slay their children foolishly without knowledge, and forbid what Allah has provided them, forging falsehood against Allah. They have certainly gone astray and they are not guided aright.
6:141 And He it is Who produces gardens trellised and untrellised, and the date-palm, and crops of diverse flavour, and the olive and the pomegrate, like and unlike. Eat of its fruit when it fructifies, and give its due on the day of harvest, and do not act extravagantly; verily He does not love the extravagant (ones) .
6:142 And of the cattle some are bearers of burden and some (low fit) for spreading. Eat of what Allah has provided you with, and do not follow the footsteps of Satan, verily he is a manifest foe for you.
6:143 (Allah has made lawful of livestock) eight in pairs - of sheep a pair and of goats a pair. Say : 'Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or what is contained in the wombs of the two females ? Inform me with knowledge if you are truthful !
6:144 And of camels a pair and of oxen a pair. Say:' Has He forbidden the two males or the two females or what is contained in the wombs of the two females? Or were you witnesses when Allah enjoined you this ? ' Who, then, is more unjust than him who forges a lie against Allah to mislead the people without knowledge ? Verily Allah does not guide the unjust people.
6:145 Say: ' I do not find in what has been revealed to me anything forbidden for an eater to eat except it be carrion, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine - for that is indeed abomination or a transgression, slain invoking (the name of) other than Allah, but whoever is forced (to eat it by necessity) , not desiring nor transgressing, then surely your Lord is Forgiving, Merciful.
6:146 And to those who were Jews We forbade every (animal) having claws, and of oxen and sheep We forbade unto them the fat of both, save what is upon their backs or the entrails or what is mixed with bones. This (prohibition) We recompensed them for their rebellion, and verily We are truthful.
6:147 But if they belie you (O' Muhammad!) , then say : 'Your Lord is (full) of mercy all-embracing, but (if they do not repent) His punishment will not be returned from the guilty people.
6:148 Those who are polytheists will say: ' Had Allah wished we would not have associated (aught with Him) nor our fathers, nor would we have forbidden anything.' So did belie those who were before them until they tasted Our punishment. Say: ' Have you any knowledge with you to adduce for Us ? You follow nothing but conjecture, and you are nothing but idle talkers '.
6:149 Say: ' Then to Allah (alone) belongs the conclusive argument. Had He wished, He would have surely guided you all aright'.
6:150 Say: ' Bring your witnesses who bear witness that Allah has forbidden this.' So if they bear witness, do not testify with them, and do not follow the desires of those who deny Our Signs, and those who do not believe in the Hereafter, and they hold (others) equal with their Lord.
6:151 Say: ' Come, I will recite what your Lord has forbidden you from : that you do not associate anything with Him, and show kindness to your parents, and do not kill your children for poverty - We provide for you and for them - and do not approach indecencies, the outward among them and the inward ones, and do not kill the soul that Allah has forbidden save for justice. This He has enjoined you with so that you might understand.
6:152 And do not approach the orphan's property except in the best manner until he reaches his maturity. And give full measure and weight with justice. We do not impose upon anyone a duty but to the extent of his ability. And when you speak, be just, though it be (against) a relative; and fulfil Allah's covenant. This He has enjoined you with so that you might remember.
6:153 And this (the mentioned commandments) indeed is My path, straight, so follow it, and do not follow (other) ways, for they will scatter you away from His path. This He has enjoined you with, so that you may guard yourselves (against evil) .
6:154 Then We gave Moses the Book, to complete (Our blessing) on him who would do good, and to explain all things, and as a guidance and a mercy, so that they may believe in the meeting of their Lord.
6:155 And this (Qur'an) is a Book which we have sent down, blessed, so follow it, and keep from evil so that mercy may be shown to you.
6:156 Lest you should say : The Book was sent down only to two parties (the Jews and the Christians) before us, and we were truely unaware of their studies.
6:157 Or (lest) you should say : ' If the Book had been sent down to us, we would certainly have been better guided than them.' So indeed there has come to you clear proof from your Lord, and guidance and mercy. Who then is more unjust than him who denies the Signs of Allah, and turns away from them ? Soon We will recompense those who turn away from Our Signs with a terrible punishment for what they used to turn away.
6:158 Do they await anything but that the angels should come to them, or your Lord should come, or some of your Lord's Signs should come ? On the day when some of the Signs of your Lord come, the faith (and repentance) will not benefit anyone who had not believed beforehand and had not earned goodness through his faith. Say: ' Wait ! we too are waiting '.
6:159 Verily those who divided their religion and became parties, you have no concern with them. Their affair is only with Allah, then He will inform them of what they used to do.
6:160 Whoever brings a good (deed) , he shall have ten times its like, and whoever brings vice, he shall not be recompensed but with its like, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly.
6:161 Say: ' Verily my Lord has guided me to a Straight Path, the established religion, the creed of Abraham, the upright one, and he was not of the polytheists.
6:162 Say: ' Verily my prayer and my worship, my life and my death are for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
6:163 No associate (there is) for Him, and this (submission) I have been commanded to, and I am the first of the Muslims.
6:164 Say : ' shall I seek a Lord other than Allah while He is the Lord of all things ? And no one earns anything but to his own account; and no one bears the burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, so He will inform you of what you used to differ (about) .
6:165 And He it is Who has made you successors in the earth, and raised some of you above others in grades that He may try you in respect to what He has given you. Verily your Lord is swift in retribution, and indeed He is Forgiving, Merciful.
