A revelation from the Compassionate, the Merciful
a Book whose signs have been expounded as an Arabic Quran for a people who know
as a bringer of glad tidings, and as a warner. But most of them have turned away, such that they hear not
They say, “Our hearts are under coverings from that to which you call us, and in our ears there is deafness, and between us and you there is a veil. So do [as you will]; we shall do [as we will].
Say, “I am only a human being like you. It is revealed unto me that your God is only one God. So go straight unto Him and seek forgiveness from Him.” Woe unto the idolaters
those who do not give alms and who disbelieve in the Hereafter
Truly those who believe and perform righteous deeds, theirs shall be a reward unceasing
Say, “Do you indeed disbelieve in the One Who created the earth in two days, and do you set up equals unto Him? That is the Lord of the worlds.
He placed firm mountains therein rising above it, blessed it, and apportioned its means of sustenance therein in four days, alike for all who ask
Then He turned to heaven while it was smoke and said unto it and unto the earth, “Come willingly or unwillingly!” They said, “We come willingly.
Then He decreed that they be seven heavens in two days and revealed to each heaven its command. And We adorned the lowest heaven with lamps and a guard. That is the Decree of the Mighty, the Knowing
So if they turn away, then say, “I warned you of a thunderbolt, like the thunderbolt of ?Ad and Thamud
when messengers came unto them from before them and behind them, [saying], ‘Worship none but God,’ they said, ‘Had our Lord willed, He would have sent down angels; so truly we disbelieve in that wherewith you have been sent.’
As for ?Ad, they waxed arrogant upon the earth without right and said, “Who is greater than us in strength?” Have they not considered that God, Who created them, is greater than them in strength? Yet they rejected Our signs
So We sent a howling wind against them in days of ill fortune, that they might taste the punishment of disgrace in the life of this world; yet the punishment of the Hereafter is more disgraceful, and they will not be helped
As for Thamud, We guided them, but they preferred blindness to guidance; so the thunderbolt of humiliating punishment overtook them for that which they used to earn
And We saved those who believed and were reverent
And on that Day the enemies of God are gathered unto the Fire and are marshaled in [ordered ranks]
till, when they come upon it, their ears, their eyes, and their skins will bear witness against them for that which they used to do
They will say to their skins, “Why did you bear witness against us?” They will reply, “God, Who makes all things speak, made us speak. He created you the first time, and unto Him shall you be returned
You did not seek to conceal, lest your ears, your eyes, and your skins bear witness against you. But you thought that God knew not much of that which you did
That thought which you thought about your Lord has destroyed you, such that you have come to be among the losers.
Then if they are patient, the Fire shall be an abode for them. And if they seek favor, they will not be granted favor
We assigned to them companions, and they made that which is before them and that which is behind them seem fair to them. So the Word among the communities of jinn and men that have passed away before them came due for them. Truly they were lost
And those who disbelieve will say, “Listen not to this Quran, but speak dismissively of it, that haply you might prevail.
We shall surely make those who disbelieve taste a severe punishment, and We shall surely requite them for the worst of that which they used to do
That is the recompense of the enemies of God—the Fire. The Abode of Perpetuity shall be theirs therein, a recompense for their having rejected Our signs
And those who disbelieve will say, “Our Lord, show us those who led us astray among jinn and men. Let us put them under our feet, that they might be among the lowliest.
Truly those who say, “Our Lord is God,” then stand firm, the angels will descend upon them, [saying], “Fear not, nor grieve, and rejoice in the Garden that you have been promised
We are your protectors in the life of this world and in the Hereafter; therein you shall have whatsoever your souls desire, and therein you shall have whatsoever you call for
a welcome from One Forgiving, Merciful.
And who is more beautiful in speech than one who calls unto God, works righteousness, and says, “Truly I am among those who submit”
The good deed and the evil deed are not equal. Repel by that which is better; then behold, the one between whom and thee there is enmity shall be as if he were a loyal, protecting friend
Yet none shall receive it, save those who are patient; and none shall receive it, save those who possess great fortune
And should a temptation from Satan provoke thee, seek refuge in God. Truly He is the Hearing, the Knowing
Among His signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon. Prostrate not unto the sun, nor unto the moon. Prostrate unto God, Who created them, if it is He Whom you worship
And if they wax arrogant, then those who are with thy Lord glorify Him night and day, and they never weary
Among His signs is that thou seest the earth diminished; then, when We send down water upon it, it quivers and swells. He Who gives it life is surely the One Who gives life to the dead. Truly He is Powerful over all things
Truly those who deviate with regard to Our signs are not hidden from Us. Is one who is cast in the Fire better, or one who comes in security on the Day of Resurrection? Do what you will; truly He sees whatsoever you do
Truly those who disbelieve in the Reminder when it comes unto them And truly it is a mighty Book
Falsehood comes not upon it from before it or from behind it; a revelation from One Wise, Praised
Naught has been said unto thee save that which has been said unto the messengers before thee. Truly thy Lord is Possessed of Forgiveness and Possessed of a Painful Retribution
Had We made it a Quran in a foreign tongue, they would say, “If only its signs were expounded. What! A foreign tongue and an Arab [messenger]?” Say, “It is a guidance and a healing for those who believe, and those who do not believe have a deafness in their ears, and it is a blindness for them. Such are called from a place far off.
Indeed, We gave Moses the Book; then difference arose concerning it. And were it not for a Word that had already gone forth from thy Lord, judgment would have been made between them. Yet truly they are confounded by doubt regarding it
Whosoever works righteousness, it is for his own soul. And whosoever commits evil, it is to the detriment thereof. It is not for thy Lord to wrong His servants
Unto Him is knowledge of the Hour referred. No fruits come forth from their sheaths, nor does any female bear or bring forth, save by His Knowledge. And on the Day when He will call unto them, “Where are My partners?” they will say, “We admit unto Thee that none among us bears witness.
That which they used to call upon before will forsake them, and they will know for certain that they have no refuge
Man wearies not of supplicating for good, and if evil befalls him, he is despondent, despairing
And if We make him taste some mercy from Us after hardship has befallen him, surely he will say, “This is mine; I think not that the Hour will come. If I am returned unto my Lord, surely with Him shall I have that which is most beautiful.” So We shall inform those who disbelieved of that which they have done, and We shall cause them to taste of a grave punishment
And when We bless man, he turns away and withdraws. Yet when evil befalls him, he is full of prolonged supplication
Say, “What think you, if it is from God, yet you disbelieve in it? Who is more astray than one in extreme schism?
We shall show them Our signs upon the horizons and within themselves till it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. Does it not suffice that thy Lord is Witness over all things
Behold! They are in doubt regarding the meeting with their Lord. Behold! Truly He encompasses all things
