Everything in the heavens and earth exalts God's limitless glory. He is the Almighty, the Wise.
The Kingdom of the heavens and earth belongs to Him. He gives life and causes death, and He is able to do all things.
He is the First and the Last, the Outer and the Inner, and He has knowledge of all things.
It is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then established Himself above the Throne. He knows what penetrates into the earth and what comes out of it, and what descends from the heaven and what ascends to it. He is with you wherever you may be. God sees everything you do.
The Kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs to Him. All matters are referred back to God.
He merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night. He knows what is in your hearts.
Believe in God and His Messenger and give out from that with which He has entrusted you. Those among the believers who give will have a great reward.
Why would you not believe in God, when the Messenger is inviting you to believe in your Lord and He has received a pledge from you, if you are believers?
It is He who sends down clear revelations to His servant, that He may bring you out from the darkness of ignorance into enlightenment. God is kind to you and Merciful-to-all.
And why shouldn't you spend in the cause of God, when the inheritance of the heavens and the earth belongs to God? Those of you who contributed before the conquest, and fought, are not equal to those who contributed and fought afterwards. They are higher in rank. But God promises both a good reward. God is All-Aware of what you do.
Who will make a loan of goodness to God, so that He may multiply it for him and reward him generously?
On the Day when you see the believing men and believing women, their light proceeding ahead of them and to their right, "Good news for you today: Gardens with rivers flowing through them, where you will remain eternally. That is the great victory".
On the Day, the hypocritical men and hypocritical women will say to the believers, "Wait for us. Let us have some of your light." They will be told, "Go back and look for light." And a wall will be raised between them with a gate in it; inside it there is mercy, but outside lies punishment.
The hypocrites will call to the believers, "Were we not with you?" They will say, "Yes, but you allowed yourselves to be tempted, and waited and doubted, deceived by wishful thinking until God's command came and the Deceiver deceived you about God."
Today no ransom will be accepted from you, nor from those who rejected the truth. Your home is the Fire. It is most worthy of you. What a miserable destination.
Is it not time for those believers hearts to become humbly submissive to the remembrance of God and to the Truth He has sent down? So they are not like those who were given the Book before them, whose time was extended but whose hearts hardened, and many of them are wicked
Know that God revives the earth after it dies. We made clear to you the signs; that you may comprehend.
For charitable men and women who have loaned God a loan of goodness, it will be multiplied for them, and they will have a generous reward.
Those who believed in God and His Messengers are the truthful ones who will bear witness before their Lord. They will have their reward and their light. But the unbelievers and those who reject Our revelations will be the inhabitants of Hell.
Know that the life of this world is just a game; recreation, glitter, boasting to one another and rivalry in wealth and children. It is like a rain that helps plants grow, pleasing the growers, but then it dries up and you see it turn yellow, then it becomes stubble. There is severe punishment in the Hereafter, as well as forgiveness from God and [His] approval. The life of this world is only an illusion.
So pursue forgiveness from your Lord and a Garden as vast as the heavens and the earth is prepared for [or 'awaits'] those who believed in God and His Messengers. That is the blessing of God which He gives to whom He wills. God is limitless in His blessings.
No misfortune occurs, either on earth or in your souls but it is recorded in a Book even before We make it happen. That is easy for God
So you will not grieve for what you missed or rejoice over what He has given you. For God does not like the vain and the arrogant,
those who are stingy and direct others to be stingy. Whoever turns away, [remember] God is rich beyond need, worthy of all praise.
We sent Our Messengers with clear evidence and We sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that people may establish justice. And We sent down iron, which can be used for military might and to benefit people in many different ways. So that God may know those who uplifted Him and His Messengers though He is beyond their senses. God is All-Powerful, Almighty.
We sent Noah and Abraham and placed prophethood and the Book among some of their descendants. Some of them were guided, but many were wicked
Then We sent Our Messengers to follow in their footsteps and followed up with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. We placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. As for monasticism, which they invented to seek God's pleasure, We did not ordain for them, and they did not observe properly. So We gave those who believed among them their reward, but many of them are wicked.
Believers, be ever mindful of God and believe in His Messenger; He will give you a double share of His mercy, provide you a light to guide you and forgive you; God is Ever Forgiving and Merciful-to-all.
That the people of the Book may know that they have no power whatsoever over God's blessings, and that all blessings are in God's Hand; He gives it to whomever He wills. God is limitless with His blessings.
