13:1  Alif Lam Mim Ra. Those are the verses of the book and what has been revealed unto you from your Lord is the truth but most mankind does not believe.
13:2  Allah it is He who raised the heavens without the pillars that you see and then established His presence over the throne and He caused the sun and the moon to obediently run [their course]. Each is running for an appointed term. He pronounces the commandment, details the signs so that perhaps you may have certitude about meeting your Lord.
13:3  It is He who spread the earth and placed therein mountains and rivers and from every fruit He made two pairs. He causes the night to cover the day. In that indeed there are signs for a people who reflect.
13:4  And in the earth are neighbouring pieces of land and gardens of vines and crops and date trees, similar and dissimilar. They are all watered with one water but We do make some exceed in taste than others. In that indeed there are signs for a people who understand.
13:5  If you were to wonder then wonder at their saying, “If we were reduced to dust are we for sure be brought out in a new creation?” Those are the ones who disbelieved in their Lord. It is they who carry fetters around their necks and it is they who will be companions of the fire to abide therein forever.
13:6  And they prompt you towards evil sooner than towards good yet indeed have gone by before them outstanding signs [of our punishment] and your Lord is indeed Master of forgiveness for the mankind despite their wrongdoings. And your Lord indeed is severe in chastisement.
13:7  And those who disbelieve say, “If only a sign is sent down to him from his Lord.” Lo! You are but a warner and for every people there is a guide.
13:8  Allah knows what every female carries and what the wombs decrease and what they let increase. Everything with Him is in due measure.
13:9  He is the Knower of the un-witnessed and of the witnessed, The All-great, The All-exalted.
13:10  It is all equal [to Him] whoever among you makes the speech secret or whoever makes it public or whoever hides by the night or goes out in the open by the day.
13:11  Before him and behind him are angels who take turns. They protect him from the commandment of Allah. Allah does not change the state of a people until they change the state of their souls and when Allah wills to bring harm to a people there is none who can turn it away. They will have no one to be an ally for them besides Him.
13:12  It is He who shows you the lightning to [provoke] fear and hope and He builds up the heavy cloud.
13:13  And the thunder exalts His praise and so do the angels out of fear of Him and He sends the thunderbolts with which He strikes whom He pleases, all the while they argue about Allah when He is the one who is Mighty in the plan.
13:14  Only for Him is the call of the truth and those they call besides Him do not respond to them with anything except like one who stretches his open hands towards the water so that it may reach his mouth and it is not going to reach it and the call of the disbeliever but goes astray.
13:15  And for Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and in the earth and so do their shadows, willingly or unwillingly, in the morning and in the evening.
13:16  Say, “Who is the Lord of the heavens and of the earth?” Say, “It is Allah” Say, “Have you then taken others as allies besides Him who do not possess any power to benefit or harm themselves?” Say, “Is the blind equal to the seeing or are the darknesses equal to the light? Or have they ascribed partners to Allah who have created the likeness of His creation so that they are confused in the matter of creation?” Say, “Allah is the Creator of all things and it is He who is The One, The All Over-powering.
13:17  He sent down water from the heaven and with it flew valleys each according to its capacity then the water flow carried swelling scum. From those things which they heat up in the fire seeking ornament or items of utility there is scum like unto it. Thus Allah sets the truth against the falsehood. As for the scum, it goes away in vain. As to what benefits the humankind, it stays in the earth. Thus Allah sets the parables.
13:18  For those who responded to their Lord is the excellent reward and as for those who did not respond to Him, had they had for themselves all that is in the earth together and the like of it with it, they would surely pay it in ransom. It is they for whom there will be a woeful reckoning and their home will be the hellfire. What a woeful resting place.
13:19  Is the one who knows what has been revealed unto you from your Lord is the truth like the one who is blind. Only those who have an understanding heart, remember.
13:20  They who fulfill their promise to Allah and do not break the solemn pledge.
13:21  And those who keep fast that which Allah has commanded to be joined and hold their Lord in deference and fear a woeful reckoning.
13:22  And those who are patient for the sake of seeking the countenance [pleasure] of their Lord and establish the prayer and spend in secret and in public from that which We have provided for them and who push away the evil with the good. It is they for whom will be the home of the good ending.
13:23  Gardens of everlastingness they enter therein and those from their fathers and from their spouses and from their descendants who were righteous, and angels enter on them from every door.
13:24  [saying], “Peace be upon you for that you were patient.” Lo! What a joyful home of good ending.
13:25  And those who break the covenant of Allah after ratifying it, and sever that which Allah has commanded to be kept fast, and spread corruption in the earth. Those are the ones for whom is the curse and for them is the woeful home.
13:26  Allah expands the provision for whom He pleases and He constricts [it for whom He pleases] but they rejoice in the life of this world and the life of this world [compared to] the hereafter is nothing but a fleeting enjoyment.
13:27  And those who disbelieve say, “If only a sign was sent down upon him from His Lord” Say, “Allah does make go astray whom He wills and guides unto Him who returns to Him in repentance.”
13:28  Those who believe and their hearts find tranquility through the remembrance of Allah. Indeed it is only through the remembrance of Allah that hearts find tranquility.
13:29  Those who have believed and have done righteous deeds [tree of] tuba is for them and an excellent place of return.
13:30  Thus We have sent you in a nation before which nations did pass so that you may relate unto them that which We have inspired you with but they disbelieve in Ar-Rahman [The All-merciful]. Say, “It is He, He is my Lord, there is no god except He. In Him do I put my trust and back to him is my place of return.”
13:31  Had a divine writ [come to them] by which mountains could be moved or the earth could be cleft asunder or the dead could be made to speak [they would still not believe] nay for Allah is the commandment altogether. Have the believers not realized that if Allah so willed He would have guided the human kind altogether but the disbelievers do not seize [to disbelieve] till the thunderbolt had struck them for that they have wrought or it falls close to their homes until Allah’s promise comes to pass for Allah does not fail his appointed tryst.
13:32  Messengers before you were indeed mocked at but I gave respite to those who disbelieved and then I seized them. [See] how then was My chastisement.
13:33  Is the One who stands [as a witness] above every soul for that which it earns [equal to one who does not] and they ascribed partners to Allah say, “Name them or are you informing Him about something that He knows not in the earth or is just an ostentation of words?” Nay! The evil counsel of those who disbelieve has been made seemly to them and therefore they have been barred from the way and whosoever Allah makes go astray, there is none as a guide for him.
13:34  For them is punishment in the life of this world and truly the punishment in the life of hereafter is harder and there will be no protector for them against Allah.
13:35  The likeness of the garden which has been promised to those who guard their own souls [is that of a garden] under which the rivers flow. Its fruit is perennial and so is its shade. That is the place of ending of those who safeguard their own souls but the place of ending for the disbelievers is the fire.
13:36  And those unto whom We gave the book rejoice at that which has been revealed unto you but among the confederates are those who deny part of it. Say, “I am only commanded to worship Allah and to ascribe no partners to Him. Unto Him do I call and unto Him is my place of return.”
13:37  And thus We have revealed it as a wisdom in the Arabic tongue and if you ever follow their vain desires after that which has come to you from the knowledge [then know that] there is no ally for you besides Allah and no protector [for you against Allah].
13:38  And indeed We did send messengers before you and we did grant unto them spouses and progenies. It was not fitting for a messenger to bring forth a sign except by the permission of Allah. For every appointed term, there is a book.
13:39  Allah effaces what He pleases and confirms [what He pleases] and with Him is the mother of the book.
13:40  Whether We make you see some of that which We have promised them or we take your soul [Unto Us]. All that is upon you is to convey the message and the reckoning is on Us.
13:41  Have they not seen that We approach the earth reducing it from its sides and Allah judges and there is none to follow upon His judgment and it is He who is Swift in the reckoning.
13:42  Those before them did scheme but the scheming altogether is for Allah He knows what every soul earns and the disbelievers will soon come to know for Whom is the home of good ending.
13:43  Those who disbelieve say, “You have not been sent a messenger” say, “Allah suffices as a witness between me and you and so does the one with whom is the knowledge of the book.”
