All the praise be to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, Who has made the angels with 2, 3 or 4 (pairs of) wings as Messengers. He adds to creation as He wills. Surely, Allah has power over every thing.
Whatever Mercy Allah grants to mankind, none can withhold it; and whatever He withholds, none can grant it thereafter. Allah is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
O mankind! Remember the Grace of Allah upon you! Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? There is no one worthy of worship but He. How then are you being deceived?
And if they deny you (O Muhammad), so surely Messengers were denied before you. And to Allah all matters return (for decision).
O mankind! Surely, the Promise of Allah is true. So don’t let the worldly life deceive you, and don’t let the chief deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah.
Surely, Satan is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy. He only invites his followers so that they may become the inmates of the blazing fire.
Those who disbelieve, there will be a severe punishment for them; and those who believe and do righteous deeds, there will be forgiveness and a great reward for them.
Can those (be guided), to whom their evil deeds made fair seeming, so that they consider them good? Surely, Allah sends astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. So don’t destroy yourself (O Muhammad) for them in sorrow. Truly, Allah is the All-Knower of what they do!
And it is Allah Who sends the winds to rise up the clouds, then We drive them to a dead land, and therewith revives the earth after its death. Such will be the Resurrection (of the dead)!
Whoever desires the honor, (should know that) all honor belongs to Allah alone. Good Words ascend to Allah and the righteous deeds are exalted by Allah. But those who plot evils, they will have severe punishment and their plots will perish.
And Allah has created you from dust, then from a drop of semen, and then He made you pairs. No female conceives or gives birth without His Knowledge. No aged human is granted a long life or the life is cut short but is written in a book. Surely, that is easy for Allah.
And the 2 seas are not alike - one is fresh sweet and pleasant to drink; and the other is salty and bitter. Yet, from each of them you eat fresh meat (fish) and get ornaments to wear. You see the ships sailing through them, that you may seek His Bounty, and that you may give thanks.
He merges the night into the day and the day into the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon (to serve you), each runs (its course) for an appointed term. Such is Allah, your Lord; His is the kingdom. Those to whom you pray instead of Him, don’t even own a thin membrane of a date-stone.
If you pray to them, they don’t hear your call, and even if they hear you, they can not answer you. On the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. None can inform you (O mankind) like the One Who is the All-Knower.
O mankind! It is you who stands in need of Allah, but Allah is Rich, Praise-Worthy.
If He wills, He can destroy you and replace with a new creation,
and that is not difficult for Allah.
And no bearer of burdens shall bear another’s burden, and if one heavily laden calls another to carry it (load), nothing will be lifted from it even though he is a close relative. You (O Muhammad) can only warn those who fear their unseen Lord, and establish prayers. Those who purify themselves, and then they purify only for their own selves. To Allah is the final return.
The blind (disbelievers) and the seeing (believers) are not alike;
nor the darkness (disbelief) and the light (belief)
nor the shade and the sun’s heat;
nor the living and the dead. Surely, Allah can make hear whom He wills, but you (O Muhammad) cannot make those hear who are in graves.
You (O Muhammad) are not but a Warner.
Surely! We have sent you (O Muhammad) with the truth as a bearer of good news, and as a Warner. And there was not a nation which did not have a Warner.
And if they deny you, so surely were those who came before. Their Messengers came to them with clear signs, with the Scriptures, and the light-giving book.
Then I seized those who disbelieved, and how terrible was My denial (punishment)!
Don’t you see that Allah sends down rain from the sky and We produce therewith fruits of varying colors? Among the mountains there are streaks (paths) white and red of varying colors and very black.
And likewise, men, beasts, and cattle have various colors. It is only those among His servants who have knowledge that fear Allah. Surely, Allah is All-Mighty, Forgiving.
Surely, those who recite the book of Allah (this Qur’an), establish prayer, and spend (in charity) out of what We have provided for them, secretly and openly, may hope for business (gain) that will never perish.
That He may pay them their rewards in full and give them more out of His Grace. Surely! He is forgiving, ready to appreciate (good deeds).
And that which We have revealed in you (O Muhammad) of the book (the Qur’an), it is the truth which confirms what was revealed before. Surely! Allah is indeed All-Aware, and All-Seer of His servants.
Then We gave the book (the Qur’an) as an inheritance to those of Our servants (Muslims) whom We have chosen. Among them there are some who wrong their own selves, some of them follow a middle course, and some of them are foremost in good deeds by the permission of Allah. That is the great grace.
They will enter the gardens of Eden where they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls and their garments will be silk therein.
They will say: “All the praise be to Allah Who has removed all grief from us. Surely, our Lord is indeed Forgiving, Ready to appreciate (good deeds),
Who has admitted us in a home (in Paradise) that will last forever out of His Grace; where no toil will touch us nor any weariness.”
But those who disbelieve, there will be fire of hell for them. Neither it (fire) will be completed on them so that they die, nor shall its punishment be lightened for them. Thus We do pay back every disbeliever!
They will cry therein: “Our Lord! Get us out, (from now) we shall do righteous deeds and shall not repeat that (evil deeds) which we used to do.” (Allah will reply): “Did We not give you lives long enough so that whoever would, could receive warning therein? And the Warner came to you. So taste (the evil of your deeds), there is no helper for the wrongdoers.”
Surely, Allah is the All-Knower of the unseen of the heavens and the earth. Surely! He is the All-Knower of what is in the hearts.
It is He Who has made you vicegerent in the earth. Whoever disbelieves, bears the burden of disbelief. And their disbelief of the disbelievers does not add anything except the Wrath of their Lord. And the disbelief of the disbelievers adds nothing but loss.
Say (O Muhammad): “What do you think about your partner to whom you call upon besides Allah? Show me, what they have created in the earth? Or do they have any share in the heavens? Or have We given them a book so that they act on clear proof from there? Nay, the wrongdoers promise one another nothing but delusions.”
Surely! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away (from their places). Even if they were to move away (from their places), there is none who could grasp them besides Him. Truly, He is ever Forbearing, Forgiving.
And they swore by Allah their most binding oath that if a Warner ever come to them, they would be more guided than any of the nations (before them). Yet, when a Warner (Muhammad) has come to them, it increased nothing in them but flight (from the truth),
(because of their) arrogance in the land and their plotting of evil. The evil plotting encompasses only those who make it. Can they expect anything but the way of former peoples? So you will not find any change in the Way of Allah and will not find any alternation in the Way of Allah.
Have they not traveled in the land and seen how terrible was the end of those who were before them, who were greater in power than them? There is nothing in the heavens or in the earth which can escape Him. Surely, Allah is the All-Knower, All-Powerful.
And if Allah were to punish people for their evil deeds, He would not leave any creature on the surface (of the earth), but He is giving them respite for an appointed term, and when their term will come, they surely will realize that Allah is All-Seer of His servants.
