A.L.M. (Alif. Lam. Mim.)
Without a doubt, revelation of the book is from the Lord of humankind.
Or do they say he made it up? No, but it is the truth from your Lord in order for you to warn people whom a warner has not come to them before you, so that they may be guided.
God is the One Who created the skies and the earth and whatever between them in six stages then He reigned over the dominion. There is no protector and no mediator for you other than Him. Do you not take notice?
He directs every affair from the sky to the earth, then it goes up to Him in a day that its duration is one thousand years of what you count.
This is the knower of the unseen and the visible, the powerful, the merciful.
The One Who created everything well, and He began the creation of the human being from clay,
then He made his descendants from an extract of a despicable (and slimy) liquid,
then He shaped him and blew from His breath of life (or spirit) into him, while He made hearing, sight, and hearts for you. You give little thanks.
And they say: “When we are lost in the earth (after death), will we indeed be in a new creation?” No, but they are disbelievers in meeting of their Lord.
Say: “The angel of death, the one who is put in charge of you, makes you die, then you are returned to your Lord.”
And if you see when the guilty ones hang their heads down before their Lord (saying:) “Our Lord, we saw and we heard, so send us back and we will do good, we are certain.”
And if We had wanted, We would have given everyone its guidance, but the word from Me will be proved, that I shall fill hell with the Jinn and the people altogether.
So, taste (the punishment) because you forgot the meeting of this day of yours, (therefore) We forgot you, and taste the eternal punishment for what you were doing.
Only (people who) believe in Our signs are those who when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrating (showing humbleness), and with praise of their Lord they glorify Him, and they are not arrogant.
Their sides separate from the beds (as they get up) to call on their Lord afraid and hopeful, and they spend (in God's way) from what We have provided for them.
And no one knows what delight of the eyes (and joys) is hidden for them as a reward for what they were doing.
Is someone who is a believer the same as someone who is disobedient? They are not equal.
As for those who believe and do good, they will have gardens of (eternal) housing, a reception for what they were doing.
And as for those who were disobedient, their housing will be the fire. Whenever they want to get out of it, they are sent back in it, and they are told: “Taste the punishment of fire which you used to deny.”
And We shall make them taste from the lesser punishment (of this world) besides the greater punishment (of the Hereafter), so that they may return.
And who is more wrong than someone who is reminded of His Lord's signs, then he stays away from them? Indeed, We take revenge from the guilty ones.
And We certainly gave Moses the book, so do not be in doubt about his encounter (to receive the Torah), and We made it a guide for the children of Israel.
And We appointed leaders among them to guide by Our command because they persevered and were certain of Our signs.
Indeed, on the Resurrection Day your Lord judges between them about what they were disagreeing about.
Or does it not guide them (the fact) that how many generations before them We destroyed, which (now) they walk in their houses? There are certainly signs in that, do they not listen?
Or do they not see that We drive the rain to the barren land, then We bring out crops with it, that their livestock and themselves eat from it? Do they not see?
And they say: “When is the judgment/victory, if you are truthful?”
Say: “On the judgment/victory day, believing of those who disbelieved does not benefit them, and they are not given any delays.”
So, stay away from them and wait, for they are also waiting.
