Do the people think that they will be left alone on saying: “We believe,” and that they will not be tested?
And indeed We tested those who were before them. And Allah will certainly make it known those who are telling the truth and will certainly make it known those who are liars.
Or do those who do evil deeds think that they can escape from Our reach? Evil is that which they judge!
Whoever hopes for the meeting with Allah, and then surely Allah’s term is coming. Allah is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
And whoever strives, then strives only for oneself. Surely, Allah is Rich (not in any need) from all mankind and jinns.
Those who believe and do righteous deeds, surely We shall remit their evil deeds from them and will reward them the best according to their deeds.
And We have enjoined on people to be good to their parents; but if they (parents) strive against you to make you join (partners in worship) with Me of which you have no knowledge, then don’t obey them. To Me is your return and I shall tell you what you did.
And those who believe and do righteous deeds, surely We shall make them enter among the righteous (in Paradise).
Some people are those who say: “We believe in Allah,” but if they are made to suffer in the cause of Allah, they confuse the trial of people as the punishment of Allah. But if victory comes from your Lord, they say: “Surely! We were with you.” Is not Allah fully aware of what is in the hearts (of the people) of the worlds?
Surely, Allah knows those who believe, and surely, He knows the hypocrites
And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: “Follow our way and we will surely bear your sins.” They will not bear anything from their sins. Surely, they are liars.
And surely, they shall bear their own loads and other loads with their own loads, and surely, they shall be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about their fabricated lies.
And indeed Allah sent Noah to his people and he stayed among them a 1,000 years less 50 years. The flood overtook them as they were wrongdoers.
Then We saved him and the people of the ship, and made it (the ship) a sign for the worlds.
And (remember) Abraham when he said to his people: “Worship Allah and fear Him, that is better for you if you understand.
You worship only idols besides Allah and you invent falsehood. Surely, those whom you worship besides Allah, don’t possess any power to give you any provision, so seek provision from Allah, worship Him, and be grateful to Him. To Him you will be brought back.
And if you deny, then truly nations have denied before you. The duty of the Messenger is not but to convey (the message) plainly.”
Don’t they see how Allah originates the creation, and then repeats it? Surely, it is easy for Allah.
Say: “Travel in the land and see how (Allah) originated the creation, then Allah will bring forth the creation last (of the Hereafter). Surely, Allah has power over everything.
He punishes whom He wills, shows Mercy to whom He wills, and to Him you will be returned.
And you cannot escape in the earth or in the heaven. And besides Allah you have neither any protector nor any helper.
And those who disbelieve in the Verses of Allah and the meeting with Him, they have no hope of My Mercy and there will be a painful punishment for them.
There was no answer of his (Abraham’s) people except that they said: “Kill him or burn him.” But Allah saved him from the fire. Surely, in this, there are signs for people who believe.
And (Abraham) said: “You have taken (for worship) idols instead of Allah. The love between you is only in the worldly life; but on the Day of Resurrection, you shall disown each other, curse each other, your abode will be the fire, and you shall have no helper.”
So Lot believed in him (Abraham). (Abraham) said: “Surely, I will emigrate for the sake of my Lord. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”
We bestowed on him (Abraham), Isaac (son) and Jacob (grandson), and ordained Prophethood and the book in his offspring. We granted him his reward in this world, and in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous.
And (remember) Lot, when he said to his people: “Surely you are committing the worst sin; no one has preceded you in committing it in the worlds
Surely, do you commit (sodomy) with men, rob travelers in the road, and practice every kind of evil deed in your gatherings?” But his people gave no answer except that they said: “Bring punishment of Allah upon us if you are one of the truthful.”
He (Lot) said: “My Lord! Help me against the corrupt people.”
And when Our Messengers (angels) came to Abraham with the glad tidings, they said: “Surely, we are going to destroy the people of this town, truly its people are wrongdoers.”
(Abraham) said: “But Lot is in there.” They (angels) said: “We know better who is in there, we will surely save him and his family, except his wife, she will be of those who remain behind.”
And when Our Messengers (angels) came to Lot, he was grieved because of them, felt distressed for them, and was unable (to protect them). They said: “Do no fear and don’t grieve! Truly, we shall save you and your family, except your wife, she will be of those who remain behind.
Surely, we are about to bring down a great punishment from the sky on the people of this town because of what they have been acting immorally.”
And indeed Allah has left in it a Sign (the Dead Sea in Palestine) evident for people who understand.
And to (the people of) Midian, (We sent) their brother Shuaib. He said: “O my people! Worship Allah, hope (reward of good deeds) for the Last Day, and don’t commit mischief on the earth as corrupt.”
But they denied him (Shuaib), so the earthquake seized them, and they became dead in their residences.
And Ad and Thamud (people)! Indeed (their destruction) is clearly apparent to you from their (ruined) residences. Satan made their deeds seem fair to them, and turned them away from the Right Way, though they were intelligent.
And (We destroyed) Korah, Pharaoh, and Haman. Indeed Moses came to them with clear evidences but they were arrogant in the land, and they could not escape Us.
So We seized all of them for their sins, against some of them We sent a violent wind with shower of stones (the people of Lot), some of them were overtaken by awful cry (Thamud or Shuaib’s people), some of them We caused the earth to swallow (like Korah), and some of them We drowned (the people of Noah or Pharaoh and his people). It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they were doing wrong to themselves.
The example of those who take protectors other than Allah is the example of a spider who builds (for itself) a house, but surely, the weakest of houses is the house of the spider; if they but knew.
Surely, Allah knows what things they invoke instead of Him. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
And these examples We put them forward for people, but none will grasp them except those who have knowledge.
Allah has created the heavens and the earth with truth. Surely! In that there is a sign for those who believe.
Recite (O Muhammad) what has been revealed to you of the book (the Qur’an) and establish the prayer. Surely the prayer prevents from great sins and evil wicked deed, and surely the Remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows what you do.
And don’t argue with the people of the book except (in a way it is) better, except those of them who do wrong, and say (to them): “We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; and our one worthy of worship and your one worthy of worship is One (Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims).”
And thus We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the book (this Qur’an) (same way as the book to Moses and Jesus). So those whom We gave the Scripture believe in it, and some of those who believe in it, and none but the disbelievers reject Our Verses.
Neither you (O Muhammad) have read any book before it (this Qur’an), nor have you written with your right hand. In that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted.
Nay, but these are clear signs in the hearts of those who are given the knowledge. None but the wrongdoers deny and reject Our Verses.
And they say: “Why have the Verses not sent down to him from his Lord? Say: “The Verses are only with Allah, and verily I am only a plain Warner.”
Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent the book (the Qur’an) down to you which is recited to them? Surely, in that there is a Mercy and a reminder for people who believe.
Say (to them O Muhammad): “Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you. He knows what is in the heavens and on earth. Those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve in Allah, they are the losers.”
And they ask you to hasten on the punishment for them. Had it not been for a term appointed, the punishment would certainly have come to them. Surely, it will come upon them suddenly while they don’t perceive!
They ask you to hasten on the punishment. Surely! Hell will surely encompass the disbelievers.
On the Day when the punishment (hellfire) shall cover them from above and from underneath their feet, and a voice shall say: “Taste what you used to do.”
O My devotees who believe! Certainly, My earth is spacious (to migrate). Therefore worship Me.
Every person shall taste the death. Then to Us you shall be returned.
And those who believe and do righteous deeds, to them We shall surely give a lofty residing place from Paradise, underneath it rivers flow, to reside in it forever. Excellent is the reward of the workers,
those who are patient and put their trust in their Lord.
So many from living creatures don’t carry their own provisions! Allah provides for them and for you. He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
And if you were to ask them (disbelievers): “Who has created the heavens and the earth, and subjected the sun and the moon?” They will surely reply: “Allah.” How then are they deviating (from truth)?
Allah enlarges the provision for whom He wills of His servants, and straitens it for whom (He wills). Surely, Allah is the All-Knower of everything.
And if you were to ask them: “Who sends down water (rain) from the sky and gives life thereby to the earth after its death?” They will surely reply: “Allah.” Say: “All the praises are to Allah!” But most of them have no sense.
This worldly life is nothing but amusement and play! Surely, the home of the Hereafter is indeed the life (that will never end), if they but knew.
When they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah (during trouble) making their religion pure for Him only. But when He brings them safely to land, behold, they join (give credit to) others in worship (besides Allah),
so that they become ungrateful for that which We have given them, and that they take enjoyment. But they will come to know.
Do they not see that We have made (Makkah) a secure sanctuary while the people from all around them are being snatched away? Then do they (still) believe in false deities, and deny the Graces of Allah?
And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or denies the truth when it comes to him? Is there not a residence in hell for the disbelievers?
As for those who strive hard in Our Cause, We will surely guide them to Allah’s ways. And surely, Allah is with the good doers
