Do human beings think that they will be left alone because they say, “We believe,” and they will not be tested?
And We did test those before them, that Allah may definitely know (mark out) those who are truthful and definitely know (mark out) the lairs.
Do those who do evil think that they will escape Us? Evil is that which they judge.
Whoever expects to meet Allah, let (him know that the end of) the term (fixed) by Allah will certainly come, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
And whoever strives, he strives only for (the benefit of) his own soul. Allah is certainly Independent of the worlds.
And those who believe and do righteous works, We will definitely wipe off from them (the effects of) their evil deeds, and We will definitely reward them (with something) better than that which they used to do.
And We have enjoined on man goodness to his parents, but if they strive with you that you should associate partners with Me, of which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them, to Me is your return then I will inform you about that which you used to do.
And those who believe and do righteous works, We will definitely admit them among the righteous.
And among mankind is he who says, “We believe in Allah,” but when he is harmed in (the cause of ) Allah, he regards the persecution of mankind like the punishment of Allah. And when victory comes from your Fosterer, they definitely say, “We were certainly with you.” Is not Allah the Best Knower of that which is there in the bosoms of (those in) the worlds.
And Allah definitely knows those who believe and He definitely knows the hypocrites.
And those who do not believe say to those who believe, “ Follow our way and we will ( carry the burdens of )your faults.” And they will not be the carriers of anything from their faults, they are certainly liars.
And they will definitely carry their own burdens plus burdens with their burdens, and they will definitely be questioned on the day of resurrection about that which they used to forge.
And We sent Nuh to his people, so he stayed among them for a thousand years less fifty years, then the flood took hold of them while they were unjust.
So We delivered him and his companions of the boat, and made it a sign for the worlds.
And (We sent) Ibrahim when he said to his people, “Worship Allah and fear Him, that is the best for you if you know.
You worship besides Allah, only idols, and you invent a lie; those whom you worship besides Allah, do not control any provision for you, so seek provision from Allah and worship Him and be grateful to Him, to Him you will be returned.
And if you deny, then the communities before you had (also) denied, and nothing is incumbent on the messenger except clear conveyance (of the message).”
Did they not consider how Allah begins the creation than gets it reproduced? That is certainly easy for Allah.
Say, “Travel in the earth and see how He began the creation, then Allah produces the later generations, Allah certainly has power over everything.
He punishes whom He wills and has mercy on whom He wills, and to Him you will be turned back.
And you cannot frustrate Him in the earth nor in the sky, and you have neither a guardian nor a helper besides Allah.”
And those who do not believe in the signs of Allah and (in their) meeting Him, those have lost hope of My mercy and those are the persons for whom there is a painful punishment.
So the answer of his (Ibrahim’s) people was nothing except that they said, “Kill him or burn him.” But Allah saved him from the fire. There are certainly signs in that for a people who believe.
And he said, “You have taken (for worship) only idols, besides Allah. Your mutual love is in the life of this world, then on the day of resurrection some of you will reject others and some of you will curse others, and your settling place will be the fire and you will not have any helpers.”
So Lut believed in him and said, “I am a migrant towards my Fosterer, He is certainly the Mighty, the Wise.”
And We granted to him (i.e. Ibrahim), Ishaq and Yaqub and made the prophet hood (to remain) in his descendants and (also) the book. And We gave him his reward in the world, and in the hereafter he will certainly be among the righteous.
And Lut when he said to his people, “You certainly commit an indecency which no one in the worlds had committed before you.
What! do you come to males and cut off the way (for committing robbery) and in your assemblies you commit things not recognised (as good)?” So the answer of his people was nothing except that they said, “Bring upon us the punishment of Allah if you are of the truthful ones.”
He said, “My Fosterer! help me against the corrupt people.”
And when Our messengers came to Ibrahim with good news, they said, “We are going to destroy the people of this town, its people are certainly unjust.”
He said, “(But) Lut is certainly there in it.” They said, “We know better about who is there in it, we will definitely save him and his followers except his wife, she will be of those who remain behind.”
So when the messengers came to Lut, he was grieved on account of them and distressed on account of them (because of his) incapability (to protect them), but they said, “ Do not fear, nor grieve, we will certainly save you and your followers except your wife, she will be of those who remain behind.
We are going to bring down on the people of this town a penalty form the sky because they used to exceed the limits.”
And We indeed left a clear sign of it for a people who understand.
And to Midian (We sent) their brother Shuaib, so he said, “O my people! serve Allah, and do expect (the coming of) the period hereafter, and do not cause disturbance in the earth being corrupt.”
But they denied him, so the earthquake took hold of them and the morning found them lying motionless in their houses.
And the Aad and the Samood, and (their punishment) is indeed clear to you from ( the remains of) their houses. And the devil had made their deeds fair seeming to them (and) thereby turned them away from the way, though they had insight.
And Qaroon and Firawn and Haman; and Musa came to them with clear proofs, but they considered themselves great in the earth and (therefore) they could not escape (Our punishment).
So each one We caught on account of his sin. So among them was he on whom We sent a sand-storm (or a rain of hot volcanic debris), and among them was he whom the loud cry afflicted, and among them was he whom We caused to sink into the earth, and among them was he whom We drowned and it was not Allah Who was unjust to them but they used to be unjust to themselves.
The likeness of those who have taken guardians besides Allah, is as the likeness of the spider which takes hold of a house and certainly the weakest of (all) the houses is the house, of the spider, if they (only) know.
Allah certainly knows whatever thing they pray to, besides Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.
And those similitude’s, We sent forth for mankind, but none understand them except those who are learned.
Allah has created the skies and the earth in reality (it is not an illusion), certainly there are signs in that for the believers.
Read that which is communicated to you of the book and establish worship (salat), worship (salat) certainly keeps one away from indecency and things not recognized (as good), and the remembrance of Allah is greatest, and Allah knows the work which you do.
And do not dispute with the owners of the book except in (a way) which is better, save (with) those who are unjust among them, and say (to them), “We believe in that which has been sent down to us and sent down to you and our God and your God is One and to Him we submit (as Muslims).”
And thus We have sent down the book to you, so those to whom We gave the book (earlier), believe in it and of these (Meccans too) there are those who believe in it, and no one knowingly denies Our signs except the infidels.
And earlier to this, you were not (able) to read from a book nor were you (able) to write it with your right hand. (Had you known reading and writing) then those involved in falsehood would have doubted.
No, those are clear signs in the bosoms of those who are given knowledge, and no one knowingly denies Our signs except those who are unjust.
And they say, “Why are signs not send down on him from his Fosterer?” Say, “Signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.”
It is not enough for them that We have sent down to you the book which is read to them? Certainly in that there is mercy, and (it is) a reminder for a people who believe.
Say, “Allah is sufficient as a Witness between me and you. He knows whatever is there in the skies and the earth. And those who believe in falsehood and do not believe in Allah, those are the persons who are the losers.”
And they ask you to hasten on the punishment, and had it not been (fixed at the end of) an appointed term, the punishment would have come (to them), and it will definitely come to them suddenly while they do not perceive.
They ask you to hasten on the punishment, and hell will certainly encompass the infidels.
On that day the punishment will cover them from above them and from beneath their feet and He will say, “Taste that which you used to do.”
O my servants who believe! My earth is certainly vast, so serve Me alone.
Every soul tastes death, then you will be returned to Us.
And those who believe and do righteous works, they will definitely be settled by Us in high places in a garden beneath which rivers flow, they will stay therein, an excellent reward for those who work (for it),
those who are patient and put their trust in their Fosterer.
And how many moving creatures are there which do not carry their provision, Allah provides for them and you (all too) and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
And if you ask them, “Who created the skies and the earth and subjected (to your service) the sun and the moon?” They will definitely say, “Allah.” How then are they turned away (form the truth)?
Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His servants and straitens it, for whomever (and whenever He wills), and Allah is certainly the Knower of everything.
And if you ask them, “Who sends down the water from the sky then gives life through it to the earth after its death?” They will definitely say, “Allah.” Say, “Praise is due only for Allah, but the majority of them does not understand.”
And this life of the world is nothing but a pastime and play and the home of the hereafter, that certainly is life, if they but know.
So when they embark on a ship they pray to Allah, making religion exclusively for Him, but when He brings them safe to the land then they associate partners (with Him),
so as to be ungrateful for that which We gave them and that they may enjoy, but they will come to know.
Did they not see that We have made the sanctuary (Kaaba) secure, while human beings are snatched away from around them? Then do they believe in falsehood and are ungrateful for the grace of Allah?
And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or denies the truth when it comes to him? Will not the home of the infidel be in hell?
And those who strive for Us, We will definitely guide them to Our ways, and Allah is certainly with the doers of good.
