Do people think that they will be left alone saying: we believe, and will not be tested?
We tested those before them, so that Allah knows those who are truthful and knows the liars.
Or do those who do bad think that they will precede Us? Bad is how they judge.
Whoever hopes to meet Allah, Allah´s appointed time will come, and He listens and knows.
And whoever makes an effort, makes an effort for his own good, for Allah is independent of all the worlds.
And those who believe and do good work, We cancel their bad deeds and reward them for the best of what they used to do.
And We instructed man to be kind to his parents, and if they argue with you to associate with Me what you have no knowledge of, then do not obey them. To Me is your return, then I will inform you of what you used to do.
And those who believe and do good work, We will enter them amongst the righteous.
And amongst people is he who says: we believe in Allah, then when he is harmed because of Allah he makes out the trials of people as the punishment of Allah, and if a victory comes from your Lord, he will say: we were with you. Does not Allah know best what everyone keeps inside?
And Allah will surely know those who believe and will surely know those who pretend.
And those who reject (the truth) say to the believers: follow our way and we will carry your shortcomings, yet they carry none of their shortcomings, for they are liars.
And they will carry their burdens and other burdens with them, and they will be asked on the day of resurrection about what they used to invent.
And We sent Nuh (Noah) to his people, then he stayed amongst them a thousand years minus fifty years, then the floods took them whilst they were wrongdoers.
And We rescued him and his companions in the ship and made it a sign for all the worlds.
And Ibrahim (Abraham), when he said to his people: serve Allah and beware of Him, that is better for you if you knew.
For you serve besides Allah idols and create a falsehood; those whom you serve besides Allah do not control provision for you, so seek provision with Allah and serve Him and thank Him; to Him you will return.
And if you deny, then communities before you already denied, and the duty of the messenger is only to convey clearly.
Do they not see how Allah initiates the creation then repeats it? For that is easy for Allah.
Say: travel on earth and see how He initiated the creation, then Allah brings about the final existence, for Allah is able to do anything.
He punishes whom He pleases and has mercy on whom He pleases, and to Him will you be brought back.
And you will not escape on earth nor the sky, and you have besides Allah no protector nor helper.
And those who reject Our signs and the meeting with Him, those despair of My mercy and for those is a painful punishment.
But the answer of his people was only that they said: kill him or burn him, so Allah rescued him from the fire, for in that are signs for people who believe.
He said: you have between yourselves adopted idols besides Allah in this world whom you love, then on the day of resurrection you will reject each other and curse each other, and your abode is the fire and you will not be helped.
Then Lut (Lot) believed in him and said: I will migrate towards my Lord, for He is the mighty and wise.
And We bestowed on him Ishaq (Isaac) and Ya´qub (Jacob) and placed amongst his descendants the prophethood and the book and gave him his reward in this world, and in the hereafter he is amongst the righteous.
And Lut (Lot) when he said to his people: you bring an indecency no-one in the whole world has preceded you with!
For you come to men and cut off the way and come up with what is objectionable in your meetings, but the answer of his people was only that they said: bring us Allah´s punishment if you are truthful.
He said: my Lord, help me against the corrupt people.
And when Our messengers came to Ibrahim (Abraham) with the good news, they said: we will destroy the inhabitants of this town, for its inhabitants are wrongdoers.
He said: but Lut (Lot) is in there. They said: we know best who is in there, we will rescue him and his family except his wife who is of those who stay behind.
And when Our messengers came to Lut (Lot), he was concerned and uneasy about them. They said: do not fear nor worry, for we will rescue you and your family except your wife who is of those who stay behind.
We shall send down on the inhabitants of this town a punishment from the sky because of their excesses.
And We left a clear sign of it for people who understand.
And to Madyan (Midian) (We sent) their brother Shu´ayb (Jethro) who said: oh my people, serve Allah and hope for the last day and do not spread corruption on earth.
But they denied, so the earthquake overtook them and they were found face down in their houses in the morning.
And ´Ad, and Thamud, as is apparent to you from their homes, and the devil made their deeds appeal to them, so he diverted them from the way whilst they were aware of it.
And Qarun (Korah) and Pharaoh and Haman, and Musa (Moses) came to them with clear proofs but they were arrogant on earth but did not get ahead.
And each did We overtake due to his sin, so of them is on whom We sent a storm, and of them is whom the roar overtook, and of them is with whom We made the earth collapse, and of them is whom We drowned, and Allah did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves.
The likeness of those who adopt protectors besides Allah is that of the spider adopting a dwelling, and the most feeble of dwellings is the dwelling of the spider if they only knew.
Allah knows whatever they call upon besides Him, and He is mighty and wise.
And these are the likenesses We coin for people, and only those with knowledge understand them.
Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth, for in that is a sign for the believers.
Recite what has been revealed to you of the book and keep up prayer, for prayer prevents indecency and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater, and Allah knows what you do.
And do not argue with the people of the book except with what is better, except for the wrongdoers amongst them, and say: we believe in that which has been revealed to us and which has been revealed to you, and our Lord and your Lord is one, and we submit to Him (as Muslims).
And this is how We revealed to you the book, and the ones to whom we gave the book believe in it, and of those there is who believes in it, and only those who reject (the truth) object to Our signs.
And you did not recite from a book before nor write it with your own hand, otherwise the ignorant would have doubted.
But they are clear signs in the hearts of those who were given knowledge, and only the wrongdoers object to Our signs.
And they say: why were not signs sent down to him from his Lord? Say: the signs are with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.
Is it not sufficient for them that We revealed to you the book which is recited to them, for in that is indeed a mercy and reminder for people who believe.
Say: Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you, He knows what is in the heavens and on earth, and those who believe in falsehood and reject Allah, those are the losers.
And they ask you to hasten the punishment, and if it was not a fixed date, the punishment would have reached them, and it will reach them suddenly when they are not aware.
They ask you to hasten the punishment, and hell surrounds those who reject (the truth).
On the day the punishment covers them from above and from below them and He will say: taste what you were used to do.
Oh My servants who believe, My earth is spacious, so serve Me.
Every soul will taste death, then you will return to Us.
And those who believe and do good, We will arrange chambers for them in the garden (of paradise) through which rivers flow where they will remain; blessed is the reward of those who work.
Those who were patient and relied on their Lord.
And how many a creature does not carry its provision; Allah provides for it and for you, and He listens and knows.
And if you were to ask them who created the heavens and the earth and made the sun and the moon of service, they would say: Allah. So where to are they diverted?
Allah expands the provision for whom He pleases and tightens it, for Allah knows everything.
And if you were to ask them who sent down water from the sky to revive with it the earth after its death, they would say: Allah. Say: Allah is praised. But most of them do not understand.
And this worldly life is only pastime and play, and the abode of the hereafter is the real life, if only they knew.
And when they board the ship they call Allah making their religion sincere for Him, then when We rescue them to land, they associate (others with Him).
So that they reject that which We gave them and in order to enjoy it for a while, but they will soon know.
Do they not see that We have made a safe sanctuary whilst people are attacked all around them? Do they then believe in falsehood and reject the blessings of Allah?
And who is more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or denies the truth when it reaches him? Is not in hell a home for those who reject (the truth)?
And those who strive for Us, We will guide them Our ways, and Allah is with those who do good.
