These are verses from the Wise Book (the Quran),
[offered] as guidance and mercy for those who act kindly,
who keep up prayer, pay the Zakat (welfare tax) and are convinced about the Hereafter.
Those hold on to guidance from their Lord; such will be prosperous.
Some men buy up vain talk to mislead [others] from Allah (God)'s way without having any knowledge, and they take it [all] as a joke. Those shall have shameful torment.
Whenever Our verses are recited to him, he turns around disdainfully as if he had not even heard them, just as if both his ears were hard of hearing. Announce painful torment to him!
The ones who believe and perform honorable deeds will have gardens of Bliss
to live in forever. Allah (God)'s promise is true, and He is the Powerful, the Wise.
He has created the heavens without any visible support. He has cast mountains on the earth lest it sway with you, and dispersed all kinds of animals throughout it. We send water down from the sky with which We grow every type of noble species.
This is Allah (God)'s creation. Show me what those others besides Him have created! Indeed, wrongdoers are in obvious error.
We gave Luqman wisdom: "Give thanks to Allah (God). Anyone who gives thanks, merely gives thanks for his own sake; while anyone who is ungrateful [will find] Allah (God) is Transcendent, Praiseworthy."
Thus Luqman told his son as he was instructing him: "My dear son, do not associate anything [in your worship] of Allah (God) [Alone]. Association is such a serious wrong!"
(We have commissioned (every)man to [look after] his parents: his mother bears him with one fainting spell after another fainting spell, while his weaning takes two years. Thank Me as well as your parents; towards Me lies the Destiney
Yet if either of them should strive to make you associate anything with Me which you have no knowledge about, do not obey them although you should (still) keep company with both of them properly during [their life in] this world. Follow the way of anyone who feels concerned about Me. Then to Me will be your return and I shall notify you about whatever you have been doing.)
"My dear son, if there existed the weight of a mustard seed, and it lay in some boulder in either Heaven or Earth, Allah (God) would still bring it forth. Allah (God) is so Gracious, Informed.
"My dear son, keep up prayer, command what is proper and forbid dishonor. Endure patiently whatever may afflict you; for that shows determination in [handling] matters.
Do not sneer down your cheek at other men nor walk brashly around the earth: Allah (God) does not love every swaggering boaster.
Act modestly in the way you walk, and lower your voice: The ugliest sound is a donkey's voice!
Do you not see how Allah (God) has harnessed whatever is in Heaven and whatever is on Earth for you? He has lavished His favor on you both publicly and privately. Yet some men will still argue about Allah (God) without having any knowledge or guidance, nor any enlightening scripture!
Whenever they are told: "Follow whatever Allah (God) has sent down," they say: "Rather we follow what we found our forefathers doing." Even though Satan has been inviting them to the torment of the Blaze?
Anyone who submits himself to Allah (God) and acts kindly has grasped the Firmest Handle! Towards Allah (God) lies the destiny of matters.
No matter who disbelieves, do not let his disbelief sadden you; to Us will be their return and We shall notify them about whatever they have done. Allah (God) is All-Knowing of what is on people's minds.
We will let them enjoy themselves for a little while; then We will drive them along to stern torment.
If you should ask them who created Heaven and Earth, they would say: "Allah (God)." SAY: "Praise be to Allah (God)!" However most of them do not realize it,
Allah (God) owns whatever is in Heaven and Earth; Allah (God) is the Transcendent, Praiseworthy.
If only the trees on earth were pens and the [inky] sea were later on replenished with seven other seas, Allah (God)'s words would never be exhausted; Allah (God) is Powerful, Wise!
Your creation and your rebirth [happen] only as with a single soul. Allah (God) is All-Hearing, Observant.
Have you not seen how Allah (God) wraps night up in daylight and wraps daylight up in night? He regulates the sun and moon: each runs along on a fixed course. Allah (God) is Informed about anything you do!
That is because Allah (God) is the Truth while anything they appeal to instead of Him is false. Allah (God) is the Sublime, the Great!
Have you not seen ships sailing along at sea because of Allah (God)'s favor, so He may show you some of His signs? In that are signs for every [person who is] persevering, grateful.
Whenever waves cover them like awnings, they appeal to Allah (God) sincerely; religion belongs to Him! Yet once He delivers them to land, some of them act disinterested. It is only every ungrateful swindler who repudiates Our signs.
Mankind, heed your Lord and dread the day when no parent will make amends for his child nor will any offspring make amends in any way for his parent. Allah (God)'s promise is true, so do not let worldly life deceive you, nor even let the Deceiver deceive you concerning Allah (God).
Allah (God) has knowledge about the Hour. He sends down showers and knows whatever wombs contains. Yet no person knows what he will earn tomorrow, nor does any person know in what land he will die. Still, Allah (God) is All-Knowing, Informed! 32. Worship or Adoration (Bowing Down On One's Knees) (I)
