Exalted is He who has all Sovereignty in His Hand, who has power over all things
He who created death and life to test you as to which of you is best in deed. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving,
it is He who created seven heavens in total harmony with one another. You will not see any discrepancy in the creation of the Merciful-to-all. Look again, do you see any gaps?
Then look again, and again, and your sight will return to you dazzled and exhausted.
We have beautified the lowest heaven with lit objects and use them as tools to stone devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blazing fire.
For those who reject their Lord, there is the punishment of Hell, a miserable destination.
When they are thrown into it, they will hear it roaring, as it seethes.
It almost bursts with rage. Every time a group is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did no one come to warn you?"
They will say, "Yes, someone came to warn us, but we did not believe in him and said, 'God has not sent down anything. You are in greatly misguided.' "
They will say, "Had we listened or reasoned, we would not have been included among the inhabitants of the Blazing fire."
So they will come to realize and admit their sin. Away with the inhabitants of the Blazing fire.
Forgiveness and great reward await those who stand in awe of their Lord although He is beyond the reach of their perception.
Whether you keep your thoughts to yourself, or state them openly, He knows what is within the heart.
Would He who created not know, when He is the Most Subtle, the Totally Aware?
It is He who tamed the earth for you, so travel its regions, and eat of His provision. To Him you will be resurrected.
Do you feel confident that He who is in the heaven would not cause the earth to swallow you as it spins?
Or are you confident that He who is in heaven would not unleash a violent storm of stones against you?Then you will know how true My warning was.
Those before them had already denied my warnings, and how terrible was My condemnation.
Have they not seen the birds above them, with wings outspread or folded in? None holds them except the Merciful-to-all. He is, The Ever Insightful.
Or who can be a force to protect you other than the Merciful-to-all? The unbelievers are really living in delusion.
Or who can provide for you if He withholds His provision? Yet they persist in their disrespect and evasion.
Is he who walks, stumbles and falls on his face better guided or he who walks upright on a straight path?
Say, "It is He who brought you into being; and gave you hearing and vision and understanding. But you are rarely grateful."
Say, "It is He who scattered you on earth, and to Him you will be gathered."
And they say, "When will this promise be fulfilled, if what you say is true?"
Say, "God alone has knowledge of this, and I am only delivering a clear warning."
But when they see it approaching, the unbelievers' faces will turn gloomy, and it will be said, "This is what you were calling for."
Say, "Just think: Should God destroy me and those with me, or if He decides to have mercy on us, who will protect the unbelievers from a painful punishment?"
Say, "He is the Merciful-to-all; We have believed in Him, and in Him We trust. You will come to know who is in evident error."
Say, "Just think: if your water drains away, who will bring you pure flowing water?"
