"Praise be to Allah and extolled are His glorious attributes" is an act of worship by all beings in the heavens and all beings, spiritual, animate and inanimate that are on earth. To Him belongs the absolute sovereignty of the universe and to Him is the gratitude and good will; He is Qadirun (Omnipotent) over all things
He is it Who created you people, and then there arose among you, into the world of action, the one who refuses to recognize Allah and the other who recognizes Allah with a heart impressed with the image of religious and spiritual virtues; Allah is Bassirun (Omnipresent), He sees all that you do
He created the heavens and the earth with equity and wisdom, and gave you form and shape and how shapely He fashioned you, then back to Him is the end and the purpose for which you are destined
He is Alimun (Omniscient) of all that is in the heavens and of all that is on earth, and He knows what you converse secretly or whisper under your breath and He knows what you utter loudly and all that is being said. And Allah is well acquainted with all that you suggest secretly to the mind and with all that the breasts store of thoughts and feelings and all that they forge
Have you people not been given a narrative of the eventful misfortunes which befell those who denied Allah among past generations, and how they tasted the fatal consequence of the evil way they conducted themselves in life? And there is yet an unsparing penalty and a condign punishment
These events were in the train of their response to their Messengers who brought them all the facts bearing witness to the truth and serving as a ground for belief; they made considerable efforts to bring them to themselves so that the spirit of truth would guide them into all truth. But they said: "How could it be so! shall we be steered by the guidance of mortals?" And so they refused to recognize Allah and they turned up their noses and turned a deaf ear. Allah ignored them and left them out of consideration; and Allah is Ghaiyun (Independent, Absolute) and Hamidun (Worthy of all praise)
The infidels venture to say that they shall not be resurrected. Say to them. O Muhammad: "But indeed you shall be. I solemnly swear by Allah my Creator you shall be resurrected and brought to judgment and you shall be informed of all that you had done, be it evil or good, minor or major, and this is indeed easy for Allah"
You people had better believe in Allah, in His Messenger and in the Quran which We have revealed; the Quran which illuminates your minds and your souls and imparts knowledge, wisdom and spiritual light and actuates you with a feeling of reverence and awe, and Allah is Alimun of all that you do
On some future Day, the Day of Resurrection, Allah shall assemble you. This is the Day of the Throng, the righteous and the wicked thronging to judgment, and he whose heart reflects I the image of religious and spiritual virtues and his works. wisdom and piety, shall Allah forgive him his iniquities and welcome him into gardens of surpassing beauty beneath which rivers flow, wherein he and such persons will have passed through nature to eternity and how befitting and how exulting is the triumph
But those who refuse to recognize Allah and inherently deny the truth, and persist in labeling Our revelations and signs as falsehood, are the inmates of the Fire, wherein they will have passed through nature to eternal suffering, and how evil is the destination
No calamity befalls a soul but by the leave of Allah. He who believes in Allah with a heart impressed with the image of religious and spiritual virtues and receives the blow without antipathy, as an act of Allah, realizing that in patience possesses he his soul, will Allah, the Spirit of truth, guide him into all truth and imprint his breast with reverential awe. Allah is Alimun of all things
You people had better obey Allah and His Messenger, and if you should turn a deaf ear and turn aside from the path of righteousness and direct your actions and thoughts away from it, then be it remembered that Our Messenger is entrusted only with relating the message and the elucidation of its text
Allah, there is no Ilah but Him; and so, entertain with profound reverence His very Oneness, Singleness, Sameness and Uniqueness, and in Him the believers, whose hearts have been touched with the Divine hand, should trust
O you whose hearts reflect : the image of religious also spiritual virtues: among your wives and your children are some who are an enemy to you, and so beware of them and be on your guard. But if you forgive, ignore their disposition and show forbearance, this will accord well together with the principles of Allah Who is Ghafurun (forgiving) and Rahimun (Merciful
Indeed your wealth and your progeny are but a trial for testing your inclinations and your beliefs, except that Allah in His heaven's realm has a much greater reward
Therefore, entertain the profound reverence dutiful to Allah to the best and open your hearts' ears to what Allah and His Messenger relate to you, and de not deviate from the path of righteousness, and spend of your wealth in benefaction and in benevolence for your own good. And he who resists the incitement arising from the state of mind and feeling and guards himself against an unjust act and impiety, inequity and greed, niggardliness and immorality and such vices, shall heaven prosper him and such persons
If you lend to Allah a pious deed, heaven shall lend you grace, and Allah reimburses you many times the like and forgives you your iniquities. Allah gives for the little what is much; He shows forbearance and may quit people His debt
He is the AL-Alim Who knows all in all; the unseen and the hidden, the spoken words, whispered under the breath or suggested secretly to the mind, and what the breasts store of thoughts and feelings and what they forge. He equally knows the loudly spoken words and all that is being said or openly done, and He is AL-Aziz (the Almighty) and AL-Hakim (the wise)
