Sent down from the Beneficent, the Merciful
( is ) a book, the signs of which are explained in detail, an Arabic Quran for a people who know,
conveyer of good news and a warner, but most of them turn away so they do not hear.
They say, “Our hearts are under protection from that which you invite us to, and in our ears is heaviness, and between us and you is a veil, so you ( do your ) work, we ( too ) are working.”
Say, “ I am only a man like you, it is communicated to me that your God is one God, so take the straight path towards Him and seek His protective forgiveness, and sorrowful is the state of the polytheists,
who do not give the charity ( zakat ) and do not believe in the hereafter.
Those who believe and do righteous works, for them is certainly a reward that will never fail.”
Say, “What! do you not believe in Him Who created the earth in two periods, and do you set up equals with Him? That is the Fosterer of the worlds.”
And He made in it mountains ( through the deposition of material ) from the surface of it, and blessed therein, and He destined in it its food in four periods , balanced ( according to the requirement ) of the seekers.
Moreover, He set the balance towards the sky which was smoke. So he said to it and to the earth , “Come willingly or unwillingly.” They both said, “We come willingly,”
so He ordained them ( to get organized into ) seven skies ( higher levels ), in two periods, and communicated in each sky its affair. And We adorned the sky of the world with lamps* and protection. That is the programme of the Mighty, the Knowing. * Stars giving light due to conversion and burning of hydrogen to helium.
So if they turn away then say, “I have warned you ( of a ) thunderbolt like the thunderbolt ( which had fallen on the people of ) Aad and Samood.”
When the messengers came to them from before them and from behind them ( saying ), “Do not serve ( worship, anything ) except Allah,” they said, “Had our Fosterer willed He would have sent down angels, so we are rejecters of that with which you are sent.”
So as for Aad, they considered themselves great in the earth without having the right to do so, and said, “Who is stronger than us in power?” Did they not consider that Allah Who created them is Stronger than them in power, and they used to knowingly reject Our signs.
So We sent a furious wind on them during the days of loss, that We may make them taste the punishment of disgrace in the life of this world, and the punishment of the hereafter will be more disgraceful and they will not be helped.
So as for Samood, We gave them guidance but they loved blindness compared to guidance, so the thunderbolt of humiliating punishment took hold of them because of that which they used to earn.
And We saved those who believed and guarded ( against evil ).
And on the day the enemies of Allah will be gathered towards the fire, then they will be formed into ordered ranks,
until when they come to it, their ears and their eyes and their skins will bear witness against them as to what they used to do.
And they will say to their skins, “Why did you bear witness against us?” They will say, “Allah, Who gives speech to everything, has given us speech.” And He created you the first time and to Him you will be returned.
And you did not hide yourselves lest your ears and your eyes and your skins should bear witness against you, but you guessed that Allah did not know many of ( the things ) which you did.
And that guess of yours which you guessed about your Fosterer destroyed you, so you became of those at loss.
So if they are patient ( even ) then the fire is the home for them, and if they seek goodwill, then they will not be of those who will be granted goodwill.
And We have appointed comrades for them, so they make fair seeming to them that which is before them ( future ) and that which is behind them . And the word has proved true against them, ( as ) among the communities of the jinn and mankind that have passed away before them, ( that ) they will certainly be losers.
And those who do not believe say, “Do not listen to this Quran and make noise when it is , perhaps you may be victorious.”
So We will definitely make those who do not believe, taste a severe punishment, and We will definitely reward them for the evil ( things ) which they used to do.
That is the reward of the enemies of Allah, the fire, for them therein is an eternal home, a reward for that which they did with Our signs: ( They ) knowingly rejected ( them ).
And those who had not believed will say, “Our Fosterer ! show us those who misled us from among the jinn and the human beings that we may place them beneath our feet, so that they may be of the lowest.”
Those who say, “Our Fosterer is Allah,” then are firmly established ( on it ), the angels certainly come down upon them ( saying ), “Do not fear nor grieve but receive the good news of the garden which you are promised.
We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the hereafter, and for you therein, will be what your souls desire for and for you therein, will be what you pray for,
an entertainment from the Protectively Forgiving, Merciful ( Allah ).”
And who is better in speech than he who invites towards Allah and does righteous work and says, “I am certainly of those who submit ( as Muslims ).”
And the good and the evil are not equal, repel ( evil ) with that which is better, then he between whom and you was enemity would become an intimate friend.
And no one is made to receive this ( quality ) except the patient, and no one is made to receive it except the possessors of mighty good fortune.
And if an instigation instigates you from the devil, then seek Allah’s protection, He is certainly the Hearing, the Knowing.
And the night and the day and the sun and the moon are among His signs, ( so ) do not prostrate before the sun or the moon but prostrate before Allah Who created them, if it is Him alone you serve
So if they consider themselves great then those near your Fosterer glorify Him in the night and the day and they are not tired.
And among His signs is that you see the earth barren but when We send down water on it, it stirs and swells. He Who gives life to it, is certainly the Giver of life to the dead, He certainly has power over everything.
Those who move away from the right ( interpretation ) of Our signs are certainly not hidden from Us. Then is he who would be put in the fire better, or he who comes secure on the day of resurrection? Do what you will, He is certainly a Seer of what you do.
( There are ) certainly those who do not believe in the reminder when it comes to them, though it is a might book.
Falsehood cannot come to it from before it, or from behind it, ( it is ) sent down from the Wise, the Praised.
Nothing is said to you except that which was said to the messengers before you. Your Fosterer is certainly the Possessor of protective forgiveness and Possessor of ( the power to ) painfully retribute.
And had We made it a Quran in a foreign ( non Arabic ) language, they would have said, “Why have not its signs* been explained in detail ( in our Arabic language)? What ! a ( book in ) foreign ( language ) and ( the messenger and those addressed ) Arabs?” Say, “For those who believe, it is a guide and a healing, and ( for ) those who do not believe, there is a heaviness in their ears and it is obscure to them, ( it is as if ) they are called from a far off place. * Statements
And We had given the book to Musa but they disagreed therein. And had a word not gone forth from your Fosterer, it would have been judged between them, and they are certainly in a restless doubt about it.
Whoever does righteous work, it is for ( the benefit of ) his own soul and whoever does evil then ( the harm of it is ) on him ( alone ) and your Fosterer is not unjust to His servants.
To Him is referred the knowledge of the hour of doom. And no fruits come out of their coverings nor any female bears nor she lays down but it is with His knowledge. And on the day He calls them, “Where are My partners?” They will say, “We announce to you, none of us has any evidence ( of any such partners).”
And that which they used to pray to earlier, will go away from them, and they will realize ( that there is ) no escape for them.
Man does not get tired of praying for good but when evil afflicts him, then he is hopelessly despairing.
And if We make him taste mercy from Us after the harm that afflicted him, he definitely says, “This was ( due to ) me ( as my right ) and I do not think that the hour of doom will be established and ( even ) if I am brought back to my Fosterer, there will certainly be ( something ) good for me with Him.” So We will definitely inform those who did not believe, about that which they did and We will definitely make them taste ( something ) from a harsh punishment. hour of doom will be established and ( even ) if I am brought back to my Fosterer, there will certainly be ( something ) good for me with Him.” So We will definitely inform those who did not believe, about that which they did and We will definitely make them taste ( something ) from a harsh punishment.
And when We show favour to man he keeps away and turns away to his side and when evil afflicts him then he is involved in lengthy prayers.
Say, “You see, if the ( Quran ) is from Allah, then you do not believe in it, who is more astray then he who is deep in opposition?”
We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves . To the extent that it will become clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient concerning your Fosterer that He is a Witness over everything?
Beware ! they are certainly in doubt about ( their) meeting with their Fosterer. Beware ! He certainly encompasses everything.
