31:1  A.L.M. (Alif. Lam. Mim.)
31:2  These are verses of the wise Book,
31:3  a guide and a mercy for the good doers,
31:4  those who perform mandatory prayer and give to mandatory charity and they are certain of the Hereafter.
31:5  They are on guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful ones.
31:6  And some people trade the amusing (and baseless) saying in order to misguide (people) from God's way without knowledge, and they take it as a joke. They will have a humiliating punishment.
31:7  And when Our verses are read to him, he turns away arrogantly as if he did not hear it or as if his ears are hard of hearing, so give him the news of a painful punishment.
31:8  Indeed those who believe and do good, the gardens of delight are for them,
31:9  remaining in there forever. God’s promise is true, and He is the powerful and the knowledgeable.
31:10  He created the skies without any pillars that you see, and He placed firm mountains in the earth so that it does not shake you (as violently), and He scattered all kinds of creatures in it. And We sent down rain from the sky, then We grew all types of splendid plants in it.
31:11  This is God’s creation, so show me what those besides Him have created. No, but the wrongdoers are in obvious error.
31:12  And We certainly gave Luqman wisdom (telling him:) “Be grateful to God. And whoever is grateful, then he is only grateful for himself, and whoever is ungrateful then indeed God is without need and praiseworthy.”
31:13  And (remember) when Luqman said to his son while advising him: “My son, do not associate (any partner) with God, for associating (partners with God) is certainly a great wrongdoing.”
31:14  And We have instructed human being about (being good to) his parents, his mother carried him (getting) weaker and weaker, and his weaning (off breastfeeding) is in two years. You should be thankful to Me and your parents. The final return is to Me.
31:15  And if they try to make you associate (partners) with Me something that you have no knowledge of, then do not obey them, but continue to be nice to them in this world, and follow the way of those who have returned to Me (in repentance). Your return is to Me, and I inform you of what you were doing.
31:16  (Luqman also said:) “My son, indeed if it (your action) is the weight of a mustard seed and it is in a rock or in the skies or on the earth, God brings it (into account). Indeed God is nice and well-informed.
31:17  My son, perform mandatory prayer and instruct to the acceptable (and right) and prohibit from the unacceptable (and wrong) and be patient about what happens to you, indeed that is of the matters (requiring) determination.
31:18  And do not turn your cheek away from people, and do not walk on the earth arrogantly, for God does not like every selfish show offs.
31:19  And be modest in your walking and lower your voice, for the most awful voice is certainly voice of the donkey.”
31:20  Have you not considered that God has brought whatever is in the skies and whatever is on the earth under your control (and at your service), and He has given you of His favors abundantly, apparent and hidden? And some people argue about God without any knowledge and without any guidance and without an enlightening book.
31:21  And when they are told: “Follow what God has sent down” they say: “No, but we follow what we found our fathers upon it” even if Satan was inviting them to the punishment of the burning fire.
31:22  And anyone who submits himself to God and he is a good doer then he has indeed grabbed on to the firm handle, and the end of all affairs are with God.
31:23  And anyone who disbelieves, then do not let his disbelief make you sad. Their return is to Us, and We inform them of what they did. Indeed God knows well what is inside the chests/minds.
31:24  We let them enjoy for a little, then We force them into a severe punishment.
31:25  And if you ask them who created the skies and the earth? They shall say: “God.” Say: “All praise belongs to God.” But most of them do not know.
31:26  Whatever is in the skies and the earth belongs to God. Indeed God is rich (and without need) and praiseworthy.
31:27  If every tree on the earth was (made into) pens, and the sea (was ink) and afterward seven more seas replenish it, God’s words would not finish. Indeed God is powerful and knowledgeable.
31:28  Your creation and your resurrection is only like (creation of) a single person. Indeed God hears all and sees all.
31:29  Do you not see that God makes the night pass through the day and makes the day pass through the night, and He controls the sun and the moon, each running (its course) in a finite time, and God is well informed of what you do?
31:30  That is because God is the truth, and whatever they call on other than Him is falsehood, and that God is the superior, the great.
31:31  Or do you not see that the ship sails in the sea by God’s favor, so that He shows you some of His signs? Indeed there are signs in that for every persevering (and patient) and thankful (person).
31:32  And when a wave covers them like the shades, they call on God being sincere to Him in the religion, then when He saves them to the land, some of them keep to the middle course, and no one rejects Our signs except every ungrateful traitor.
31:33  People, be cautious of your Lord and fear a day when no father pays for his child and no child is the payer of anything for his father. Indeed God’s promise is true, so do not be deceived by this world’s life, and do not be deceived by the deceiver (Satan) about God.
31:34  Indeed knowledge of the Hour is with God, and He sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs, and no one knows what he/she will do tomorrow and no one knows in which land he/she will die. Indeed God is knowledgeable and well-informed.
