6:1  All praise belongs to God, who created the heavens and earth, and made the darkness and light; yet those who are ungrateful equate others with their Lord.
6:2  God it is who created you from clay, then decided a term. And there is an appointed term in the presence of God. And yet you doubt.
6:3  And God is what is worthy of worship in the heavens and the earth: God knows your secret and your manifestation, and God knows what you deserve.
6:11  Say, "Travel over the earth and see what became of those who rejected truth as false."
6:12  Say, "To whom belongs what is in the heavens and earth?” Say, "To God, self-committed to mercy. God will surely gather you all for the day of judgment in which there is no doubt; those who have lost their own souls are those who do not believe.
6:13  "And to God belongs all that dwells in the night and in the day; and God is all-hearing, all-knowing.”
6:14  Say, "Shall I take for friend and protector any other than God, creator of the heavens and the earth? For God feeds but is not fed.” Say, "I am commanded to be the first of those who submit to God; and you should not be idolatrous.”
6:32  And the life of this world is nothing but play and sport: and indeed the abode hereafter is best for the conscientious; so won't you understand?
6:38  And there is no beast upon the earth nor bird that flies on wings but forms communities like you: We have not omitted anything from the Book; and after a time they will be gathered, called unto their Lord.
6:42  And We did send envoys to communities before you, and seized them with misfortune and affliction, that they might humble themselves.
6:43  But why did they not humble themselves when Our misfortune reached them? Instead their hearts hard 1.ed. and Obsession made charming to them what they used to do.
6:44  Then when they forgot what they had been reminded of, We opened for them the doors of all things, till they smiled at what they had been given. Unexpectedly We seized them, and then they despaired.
6:45  And so was cut off the last remnant of the people who did wrong; and the praise belongs to God. Lord of the universe.
6:46  Say “Do you imagine. should God take your hearing and your seeing and seal your hearts. some god other than God that will restore them?" Observe how We explain the Signs, and yet they turn away.
6:47  Say, "Do you think that if there came to you the punishment of God. unexpectedly or obviously. any will be destroyed except the people who are unjust?”
6:48  We only send the envoys as bearers of good tidings and as warners; so whoever believe and amend themselves have nothing to fear and will not sorrow.
6:50  Say, “I do not tell you I have the treasures of God; and I do not know the unseen. And I do not tell you that I am an angel. I only follow what wat revealed to me." Say, "'Are the blind and the seeing equal? So will you not consider?”
6:51  So warn by this those who fear they'll be gathered to their Lord: other than God there is for them no protector and no intercessor; thus may they be wary.
6:52  And do not drive away those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening seeking the essence of God: you are not accountable for them, and they are not accountable for you. So if you drive them away, you will be an oppressor.
6:53  And thus have We tried some of them by others, that they might say, "'Are these the ones whom God has graced from our midst? Does not God know best who are the grateful ones?
6:54  And when there come to you those who believe in Our signs. say. “Peace upon you.” Your Lord is self-committed to mercy, so that if any among you do something bad in ignorance but then repent and make amends. assuredly God is forgiving and merciful.
6:56  Say, “I am forbidden to worship those upon whom you call other than God.” Say, “I do not follow your desires; I would have strayed in that case. and would not be among the guided."
6:57  Say. “I act on evidence from my Lord, though you consider it false. I do not have what you seek to hasten; God alone has the wisdom. God tells the truth and is the best of judges."
6:59  For with God are the keys of the unseen; no one knows them but God. And God knows what is on the land and in the sea; and not a single leaf falls but God knows it. And there is not a single grain in the darknesses of earth, nor anything green, or withered
6:60  And it is God who takes your souls by night, and knows what you have acquired by day; then resurrects you in it, that an appointed term may be fulfilled. Thence your destination is to God, who will then acquaint you with what you have done.
6:95  Surely it is God who splits the seed and the stone, bringing the living from the dead; and it is God who brings the dead. from the living. That is God; so how can you be deceived?
6:96  God ca uses the dawn to break, and has n1.ade the night for rest, and the sun and moon for reckoning; that is the ordering of the Mighty, the Knowing.
6:97  It is God who has made the stars for you that you may be guided by them in the darknesses of land and of sea. We have defined the signs for a people who discern.
6:98  It is God who has produced you all from a single self; so here is an abode, and a lodging. We have defined the signs for a people who understand.
6:114  So shall I seek a judge other than God. the very one who sent the Book to you clearly explained? And those to whom We gave the Book know it is a revelation from your Lord in truth: so do not be any part of those who doubt.
6:115  And the word of your Lord is fulfilled in truthfulness and justice: there is no changing the divine word, for God is all-hearing, all-knowing.
6:116  But if you were to obey most of those on earth, they would divert you from the way of God: for they follow but conjecture. and they only tell untruth.
6:117  Surely your Lord knows best who has strayed from the way of God; and God knows best who are guided.
6:120  So forsake all sin. both open and secret; for those who are guilty of sin will be recompensed for what they have gained.
6:122  And can those who were dead but We brought to life and gave a light wherewith to walk among humanity be as those who are in the dark and cannot emerge from it? Thus for the ungrateful what they have done is made to seem pleasing to them.
6:130  Assembly of spirits and humanity! Did there not come to you messengers from among you relating My signs and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours? They will say, “we bear witness against ourselves.” For the life of the world deceived them with v
6:159  As for those who split their religion and divide up into sects, you have no part in them at all: their affair is up to God alone, who will acquaint them with what they have been doing.
6:160  For those who do good is ten times that much; and those who do evil will not be rewarded but by its like: and they will not be wronged.
6:162  Say, "Truly my prayer and total devotion and my life and my death are for God, Lord of the worlds.
6:163  "No partner has God: this a1nI instructed; and I am the first of those who submit."
6:164  Say, “Shall I seek a lord other than God, who is Lord of all things? And no soul earns but what is due it, and none bears the burden of another. Ultimately your destination is to your Lord, who will acquaint you with that on which you differed."
