13:2  God is the one who raised up the heavens without columns that you see; then He made for the throne, and subjected the sun and the moon; each one runs on to a named term; He governs the affair, He details the signs; perhaps you will be sure of the meeting with your Lord.

13:5  And if you wonder, then wondrous is their speech: 'When we are dust, shall we surely be in a new creation?' Those are the ones who disbelieve in their Lord, and those, on their necks are the fetters, and those are the fellows of the fire; they shall dwell in it forever.
13:6  And they ask you to hasten on the evil before the good; and verily examples have passed away before them. And indeed, your Lord is possessor of forgiveness unto men, for their wrongdoing; and indeed, your Lord is surely severe in punishment.

13:11  For him are successive angels before him and behind him, who guard him at the command of God; indeed God does not change what a people have until they change what is in themselves. And when God wishes evil for a people, then there is no averting it, nor have they a protector beside Him.
13:12  He is the one who shows you the lightning, a fear and hope; and He brings up the heavy clouds.

13:14  To Him is the call of truth, and those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches out his hand to the water to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it. And the call of the disbelievers is only in error.

Say, 'Shall the blind and the seeing be held equal? Or shall the darkness and the light be held equal? Or have they ascribed to God associates who can create as He creates, so that the creation seem alike to them?' Say, 'God is the creator of everything, and He is the One, the Subduer.'
13:17  He sends down from the sky water, and the valleys flow according to their measure, and the torrent carries a floating scum: and from what they heat in the fire, seeking ornaments or utensils, comes a scum like it; - thus God strikes the truth and the falsehood; - then as for the scum it is thrown off, and as for what profits mankind it stays in the earth. Thus God strikes out the parables.
13:18  For those who respond to their Lord is good; but those who do not respond to Him, if they had all that is in the earth and the like of it with it, surely they would give it for a ransom; those shall have an evil reckoning, and their habitation is Hell,- and evil is the bed.

13:29  Those who believe and do good works; goodness for them and an excellent place of return.
13:30  Thus We have sent you to a nation before which nations have passed away, to recite to them that which We have inspired you with; and they disbelieve in the Merciful. Say, 'He is my Lord; there is no god but He; upon Him do I rely, and unto Him is my repentance.'
13:31  And though that was a Quran by which the mountains passed away, or by which the earth were cut up, or by which the dead were made to speak - nay, God's is the command altogether.

Or of the apparent of the words?' Nay, their stratagem is beautified to those who disbelieve, and they are kept back from the way; and whomever God leads astray, then for him there is no guide.
13:34  For them is punishment in the worldly life; and surely the punishment of the hereafter is more severe, and they have no defender from God.

13:37  And thus We have sent it down, an Arabic judgment, and if you should follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would not have against God any patron or defender.
