All the praises and gratitude belong to Allâh, the Originator of the heavens and earth, Who appoints the ‘Angels’ as Messengers flying on wings, two, or three, or four. He increases in creation whatever He wills. Indeed, Allâh is capable of doing whatever He wills.
Whatever of mercy, Allâh may open to mankind, none will be capable of obstructing it. And Whatever He obstructs, none will be capable of assisting thereafter. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
O’ mankind, remember the grace of Allâh upon you. Is there any creator besides Allâh who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? There is no other god beside Him. So how they are deceived into going away from the established course?
And if it happens that they deny you, O ‘Muhammad’, ( you'll need to know that) other ‘Messengers’ have been denied before you. To Allah all matters are returned.
O’ mankind, the Promise of Allâh is absolutely true. Thus, let not this ‘worldly life’ deceive you, nor let the real deceiver, (‘Satan’), deceive you concerning Allâh.
The devil is absolutely, without a doubt is your enemy. Thus, treat him as your enemy. He only invites his party to be companions of the Blazing Fire.
For those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh), there is a severe punishment. But for those who adhere firmly to Islamic monotheism and do righteous acts, there is forgiveness and an immense remuneration.
What! Is the one whose evil deed is adorned to him so that he may consider it as good (equal to one who attains spiritual insight)? Indeed Allâh leads astray whomever He wills, and gives spiritual insight to whomever He wills. Let not yourself be wasted in sorrow for their sake. Indeed Allâh knows perfectly well what they do.
Allâh is the One Who sends the winds so as to stir up clouds. Then We drive it on to a dead land, and resuscitate therewith the earth after its death. Such will be the resurrection.
Whoever seeks sublimity (let him know that) all sublimity belongs unto Allâh. To Him, the highly pleasant words (of the monotheistic believer), do ascend, while He elevates (his) righteous deeds. Those who plan to do evil will be subjected to a severe chastisement. And their plan will come to null and void.
Allâh created you from dust, then from a semen-drop, then He made you pairs, (male and female). No female conceives or gives birth, except with His knowledge. No aged person is given a length of life, nor is aught lessened of his life, but it is all in a book. Undoubtedly this is easy for Allâh. .
The two seas are not alike: the one fresh, sweet, pleasant to drink; and the other salty, bitter. Yet from both you eat fresh tender meat and derive ornaments which you wear. You see the ships cleaving through it so that you may seek of His bounty, and show your gratitude (to Allâh for His blessings).
He causes the night to pass into the day and He causes the day to pass into the night. He has subjected the sun and the moon, each of them running to an appointed term. This is Allâh, your Lord. His is the Supreme Authority. Those whom you implore and pray, instead of him, possess nothing, not even a membrane of a date-seed.
If it happens that you implore and pray to them, they won’t be capable of hearing your supplication. Even if they were to hear, they would not be able to respond to you. On the ‘Day of Resurrection’, they will disown association with you. None is capable of informing you like Him Who is All-Aware.
O’ mankind, it is you who are in need of Allâh. Lo! Allâh is the Self-Sufficient, Worthy of all praise.
If He wills, He can (easily) cause you to vanish (competently) and bring forth a new creation.
This is not too arduous task for Allâh.
No bearer of a burden shall bear the burden of another. If one heavy-burdened calls for (another to carry) its burden, not aught of it will be carried, by none, not even a relative, will be allowed to do so. You can warn only those who venerate their Lord secretly and establish Prayer. Whoever purifies himself-, then purifies only for the benefit of his own self. To Allâh is the definitive course.
Not equal are the spiritual blind and the enlightened,
Nor the darkness and light,
Nor the sunshade and the heat.
Not equal are the living ones and the dead. Indeed, Allâh makes, whom He will, hear. But you cannot make those who are in the tombs hear.
You are not more than a warner.
Verily, We have sent you with the truth as a herald and a warner. There never was a nation but a warner had passed among them.
If it happens that they deny you, then (you’ll need to know that) those who before them had denied the ‘Messengers’. Their ‘Messengers’ came unto them with the full knowledge of the truth, with the ‘Psalms’ and with the enlightening ‘Scripture’.
Then I seized those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh). How (dreadful) was the manifestation of My denunciation!
Do you not see that Allâh sends down water from the heavens, then We bring forth therewith fruits of various colors? In the mountains are streaks white and red, of varying colors and (others) intensely deep black.
Also, of people, animals, and livestock come in various colors. The ones, who show proper reverence for Allâh, (more than others), among His servants, are the ones who have spiritual gift of knowledge. Indeed, Allâh is All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving.
Indeed, those who recite the ‘Book’ of Allâh, (this ‘Qur'an’), establish the regular Prayer and expend (on His cause) out of what We have provided them, privately and publicly, rummage around for a commerce that will never perish.
He will pay them in full their rewards, and will give them even more out of His Bounty. Verily! He is Oft-Forgiving, All-appreciating.
As for that which We inspire in you of the ‘Book’ is the truth verifying that which was (revealed) before it. Verily! Allâh is indeed All-Aware, and All-Seer of His servants.
Then We gave the ‘Scripture’ as inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants. But of them is he who wrongs himself, of them is he who is lukewarm, and of them is he who is foremost in doing good by the permission of Allâh. That is the great bounty.
Gardens of Eden, will they enter, therein they will be decked with bracelets of gold, pearls, and their raiment there will be of fine silk.
They will say: "All the praises and gratitude belong unto Allâh, Who has taken the sorrow away from us! Verily, our Lord is absolutely Oft-Forgiving, All-Appreciating,
Who, out of His Bounty, has made us establish in the abode of everlasting life; therein diligence will not touch us, nor will exhaustion touch us therein.
On the other hand, those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) will have to incur the fire of ‘Gehenna’. It will be preordained for them not to die, neither will the torment be lightened for them. This is how We chastise every ingrate one.
Therein they will cry out: “Our Lord, get us out, (for sure) we shall do righteous good deeds other than those which we used to do." Did not We grant you a life long enough, for whoever would (like to) consider therein to consider? There came to you the warner (who gave you sufficient warning about how to avoid Hellfire). Therefore, taste (the consequences of your evil deeds). For the ones who were grossly unfair and morally wrong, there is no helper.
Indeed, Allâh is the All-Knowing of the unseen of the heavens and the earth. Indeed, He is the All-Knowing of what is in the hearts.
He is the One Who has made you successors in the earth. Thus, whoever is tempted to fall into disbelief must bear the consequences of his denial. The denial of the faithless people adds naught except repugnance with their Lord. The denial of the faithless people adds naught except perdition.
Say: “Have you seen your associates to which you implore and pray, besides Allâh? Show me what part of the earth they have created. Or do they have any share in the creation of the heavens? Or, have We given them a book so that they may follow an evident pretext thereof? Nay, the ones who are grossly unfair and morally wrong promise one another naught but deception."
Definitely, Allâh upholds the heavens and the earth lest they fragmentize. If it should happen that they fragmentize, then none could uphold them after Him. Indeed, He is Ever Most Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving.
They swore by Allâh solemnly that If it should happen that a warner would come to them, they would be more guided than any of the nations. But when a warner came to them, it increased in them naught except reluctance.
(They were reluctant due to their) superciliousness in the earth and to their evil scheme. However, the evil scheme affects none but its schemer. Then do they expect anything else, but the (dreadful) outcome of the ancients? Therefore, no alteration will you find in the fate of Allâh. No diversion will you find in the fate of Allâh.
Have they not travelled through the land and seen what was the dreadful consequence for those who were before them? They were more powerful than them. Nothing in the heavens or on the earth can frustrate (the power of ) Allâh. Indeed, He is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.
If Allâh where to inflict a penalty on the people for what they committed, He would not leave a living creature on the surface of the earth. But He reprieves them till an appointed term. Thus, When their appointed term comes, then (you need to know that) Allâh is absolutely Ever All-Seer of His servants.
