Alif Laam Miim Raa. Those are the signs of the book. And that which is sent down to you from your Fosterer is the truth, but the majority of human beings does not believe.
It is Allah Who raised the skies (heavenly bodies) without any support which you see, then set the balance on the throne (of the universe), and He compelled the sun and the moon (to follow His laws), each one moves fast till an appointed time. He governs the affair. The signs are explained in detail by Him that you may be certain of meeting your Fosterer.
And He it is Who stretched the earth and made in it mountains and rivers. And of every fruit in it, He has made pairs of two. He covers the night over the day. In that there are certainly signs for a people who reflect.
And in the earth there are neighboring tracts, and gardens of grapes and fields sown with corn and date palms, having one root and (others) having distinct roots, watered with one water. And We have made some to excel others in fruit. In that there are certainly signs for a people who understand.
And if you would wonder, then wonderful is their saying, “What ! when we become (part of the ) soil (after our death) shall we indeed be (created ) in a new creation?” Those are the persons who do not believe in their Fosterer and those will have chains in their necks and those are the inhabitants of the fire, they will stay therein.
And they ask you to hasten on the evil before the good, when there have been exemplary punishments before them. And your Fosterer is certainly Protectively Forgiving to mankind (inspite) of their being unjust and your Fosterer (at the same time) is certainly Severe in requiting (evil).
And those who do not believe say, “Why has not a sign been sent down to him from his Fosterer?” You are only a warner and for every people there is a guide.
And Allah knows that which every female bears and that which the wombs absorb and that which they grow; and with Him, everything is according to a programme.
Knower of the unseen and the seen, the Great, the Most High.
He who speaks secretly from among you and he who speaks openly and he who hides himself in the night and (he who) goes forth in the day time, are all equal (to Him).
For him there are (angels) following him closely, before him and behind him, protecting him by the command of Allah. Allah certainly does not change (the condition) in which a people are, until they change that which is in their souls. And when Allah intends evil for a people then there is no turning it back, and besides Him there is no guardian for them.
He it is Who shows you the lightning (causing) fear and hope and He produces the heavy clouds.
And the thunder glorifies Him with His praise and the angels (too), because of His fear; and He sends the thunder-bolts, then strikes with it whom He wills, and they dispute about Allah while He is Severely Powerful.
To Him is due the real prayer (for help), and those to whom they pray (for help) besides Him, do not respond to them in anything but like one who stretches his hands towards water that it may reach his mouth but it does not reach it. And the prayer of the infidels (is nothing) but in vain, (being fruitless).
And to Allah bows down whoever (and whatever) is in the skies and the earth willingly and unwillingly and their shadows (too), in the mornings and the evenings.
Say, “Who is the Fosterer of the skies and the earth?” Say, “Allah.” Say, “Then do you take guardians besides Him, who do not have the power to benefit or harm (even) their own selves?” Say, “Are the blind and the seeing equal or is the darkness equal to light. Or do they assign partners for Allah who have created as He has created, so that the creation (of Allah and theirs appear) similar to them?” Say, “Allah is the Creator of everything and He is the One, the Omnipotent.” Allah and theirs appear) similar to them?” Say, “Allah is the Creator of everything and He is the One, the Omnipotent.”
He sends down water from the sky which flows in valleys according to its programme, so that the torrent bears (on its surface) a swelling foam, and from that which they melt in fire for making ornaments or things (of utility, rises) a foam similar to it, thus Allah strikes (a comparison between) the truth and the falsehood. So as for the foam it passes away as useless froth and as for that which is useful to mankind, it remains in the earth. Thus does Allah (explain by) striking examples.
It is good for those who respond to their Fosterer, and those who do not respond to Him, (even) if they had all that is in the earth and the like thereof with it, they would offer it as ransom, for such persons there is an evil accountability and their settling place is hell and it is an evil place of habitation.
Then, is he who knows, that what is sent down to you from your Fosterer is the truth, like him who is blind? Only men of understanding will mind,
those who fulfill the agreement with Allah and do not break the pledge,
and those who join that which Allah has commanded to be joined and fear their Fosterer and are afraid of an evil accountability,
and those who are patient seeking the Attention of their Fosterer and establish worship (salat) and spend from that which We have provided them, secretly and publicly and turn off evil with good. For such persons there will be the final (good) home,
gardens of ever lasting bliss which they will enter along with those who were righteous from among their parents (forefathers) and their spouses and their descendants. And the angels will enter on them from every gate (saying),
“Peace be on you because of your patience,” so (for them is) happiness of the final (good) home.
And those who break the agreement of Allah after having pledged it, and cut off that which Allah has commanded that it should be joined, and cause corruption in the earth, for such persons there will be the curse and for them will be the evil home.
Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straitens (it for whomever and whenever He wills). And they are happy with the life of this world and the life of this world, compared to the hereafter, is nothing but (temporary) enjoyment.
And those who do not believe say, “Why is not a sign sent down on him from his Fosterer?” Say, “Allah certainly leaves in error whom He wills and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him),
those who believe and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah. Beware! hearts do find peace in the remembrance of Allah.
Those who believe and do righteous works, for them is pleasing good and a beautiful place of return.”
Thus We have sent you to a community, before whom other communities have passed away, that you may read to them that which We have communicated to you, yet they do not believe in the Beneficent (Allah). Say, “He is my Fosterer, there is no god except Him, in Him do I put my trust and to Him do I turn.”
And if there were a Quran, with which mountains could be moved or with which the earth could be cleaved asunder or with which the dead could be made to speak (even then they would not have believed). No! the command is wholly Allah’s. Then, do not those who believe know, that if Allah had willed He would have guided the whole of mankind? And as for those who do not believe, disaster will not cease to afflict them because of that which they do or it will alight near their houses until the promise of Allah comes to pass, Allah certainly does not go against His promise. do or it will alight near their houses until the promise of Allah comes to pass, Allah certainly does not go against His promise.
And messengers were certainly mocked at before you, but I gave (sufficient) time to those who did not believe, then I caught them. How then was my requital (of evil)?
Then, is He, Who is established on every soul (so as to know) that which it earns, (like those who are powerless)? And they appoint partners for Allah. Say, “Name them. Or do you wish to inform Him about (something) which He does not know in the earth? Or (is your polytheism just an) expression of words (and nothing else)?” No! their plans are made to appear fair seeming to those who do not believe and they are turned away from the way, and whom Allah leaves in error, then for him there is no guide.
For them there is punishment in the life of this world and the punishment of the hereafter is more painful, and they will have no defender against Allah.
The likeness of the garden which is promised to those who guard (against evil): rivers flow beneath it, its food is everlasting and (also) its shade. That is the end of those who guard (against evil) and the end of the infidels is the fire.
And those whom We gave the book are happy because of that which is sent down to you. And from among the parties, is he who does not recognise a part of it. Say, “I am commanded that I should serve only Allah and that I should not associate partners with Him. Towards Him do I invite and towards Him is my return.”
And thus have We sent it down (as) a judgment in Arabic, and if you follow their desires after the knowledge which has come to you, (then) you will not have any guardian or defender against Allah.
And We had sent messengers before you, and We had given to them wives and off spring; and it was not in (the power of) a messenger to bring a sign without the permission of Allah. For every term (period) there is a prescription (book).
Allah abolishes what He wills and keeps established (what He wills) and with Him is the original prescription (book).
And whether We make you see something of that which We have promised them or We take you back (cause you to die), on you then, is (incumbent) only the conveyance (of the message) while on Us (it is to take) the account.
Or do they not see that We certainly give the earth its reduction from its borders . And (when) Allah commands none can reverse His command and He is Quick at (settling) the account.
And those before them did indeed plan, but the planning is wholly Allah’s (consequently) He knows what every soul earns. And the infidels will come to know, for whom is the final (good) home.
And those who do not believe say, “You are not a messenger.” Say, “Allah is sufficient as a Witness between me and you along with him with whom is the knowledge of the book.”
