The book (the Qur’an) in which there is no doubt, is revealed from the Lord of the worlds.
Or do they say: “He (Muhammad) has fabricated it?” Nay, it is the truth from your Lord so that you (O Muhammad) may warn people to whom no Warner has come before you, in order that they may be guided.
It is Allah Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them in 6 days. Then He rose over the Throne (to suit Majesty). You (people) have no protector or intercessor besides Him. Will you not then remember
He manages every affair from the heavens to the earth; then each affair goes up to Him in one day, the period of which is 1,000 years of what you count (as worldly time).
That is He, the All-Knower of all the unseen and the seen, the All-Mighty, the Merciful.
It is He Who has made everything good that He has created. He began the creation of human from clay,
then He made human’s offspring from semen of worthless water,
then He fashioned human in due proportion, and breathed into human the soul (created by Allah). He gave you hearing (ears), sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is what thanks you give!
And they say: “When we are (dead and become) lost in the earth, shall we be created new?” Nay, but they deny the Meeting with their Lord!
Say: “The angel of death (Izra’il) who is set over you, will take your souls and then you will be returned to your Lord.”
And if only you could see when the criminals will hang their heads before their Lord (saying): “Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so send us back (to the world) and we will do righteous deeds. Surely! We now believe with certainty.”
And it will be said: “If We had willed, surely! We could have given every one its guidance. But the Word from Me took effect (about evil-doers) that I will fill hell with jinn and mankind together.
Now you taste (the punishment of the fire) because of your forgetting the meeting of this Day, surely! We too have forgotten you; you taste the continuous punishment for what you did.”
Only those who believe in Our Signs, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate, glorify the praises of their Lord, and are not proud.
Their sides forsake their beds, they invoke their Lord in fear and hope, and they spend (in Our Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them.
No one knows what is kept hidden for them of the joy of their eyes as a reward for what (good) they did.
Can the one who is a believer be like the one who is a sinner? They are not equal.
As for those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them are gardens (Paradise) as shelter to reside for what they did.
But those who have sinned, their abode will be the fire. Every time they wish to get away from it, they will be put back in it, and it will be said to them: “You taste the punishment of the fire which you used to deny.”
And surely, We will make them taste the lighter punishment (in this life) before the greater punishment (in the Hereafter), so that they may return (to the Right Way).
And who does more wrong than the one who is reminded of the Verses of his Lord and then he turns aside from them? Surely, We shall take retribution from the criminals.
And indeed, We gave Moses the Scripture (the Torah). So don’t be in doubt of his receiving it. And We made it (the Torah) a guide for the children of Israel.
And We made leaders from among them (children of Israel) giving guidance under Our Command as long as they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Verses.
Surely, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning what they differed.
Is it not guidance for them of how many previous generations We have destroyed before them in whose residences they walk about? Surely, there are signs. Would they not listen?
Don’t they see how We drive water (rain) to the dry land without any vegetation and bring forth crops with it which they and their cattle eat? Will they not then see?
They say: “When will this decision (Judgment) happen if you are telling the truth?”
Say (O Muhammad): “On the Day of decision, no benefit will be to the disbelievers, nor they will be granted respite.”
So turn aside from them (O Muhammad) and await, surely they are waiting.
