Blessed is He in Whose Hand lies sovereignty, and He is Powerful over all things
Who created death and life that He may try you as to which of you is most virtuous in deed, and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving
Who created seven heavens one upon another; no disproportion dost thou see in the Merciful’s creation. Cast thy sight again; dost thou see any flaw
Then cast thy sight twice again; thy sight will return to thee humbled and wearied
Truly We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps and made them missiles against the satans; and We have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze
And for those who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of Hell. What an evil journey’s end
When they are cast therein, they will hear it blaring as it boils over
well-nigh bursting with rage. Whenever a group is cast therein, its keepers ask them, “Did not a warner come unto you?
They say, “Indeed, a warner came unto us, but we denied him and said, ‘God did not send anything down; you are in naught but great error.’
They say, “Had we listened or had we understood, we would not be among the inhabitants of the Blaze.
Thus do they admit their sin; so away with the inhabitants of the Blaze
Truly for those who fear their Lord unseen there shall be forgiveness and a great reward
Keep your speech secret or proclaim it; truly He knows what lies within breasts
Does He Who created not know? He is the Subtle, the Aware
He is the One Who made the earth tractable for you; so travel the open roads thereof and eat of His provision. And unto Him is the Resurrection
Do you feel secure that He Who is in Heaven will not cause the earth to engulf you while it churns
Or do you feel secure that He Who is in Heaven will not unleash a torrent of stones upon you? Soon shall you know how My warning is
And indeed those before them denied. How, then, was the change I wrought
Have they not considered the birds above them, spreading and folding up [their wings]? None holds them save the Compassionate. Truly He sees all things
Who is it that will be a host for you, who may help you, apart from the Compassionate? The disbelievers are in naught but delusion
Who is it that will provide for you if He withholds His provision? Nay, but they persist in insolence and aversion
Is one who walks with his face stooped down more guided, or one who walks upright upon a straight path
Say, “He it is Who brought you into being and endowed you with hearing, sight, and hearts. Little do you give thanks!
Say, “He it is Who multiplied you upon the earth, and unto Him shall you be gathered.
And they say, “When will this promise come to pass, if you are truthful?
Say, “Knowledge lies with God alone, and I am only a clear warner.
And when they see it close at hand, the faces of those who disbelieved shall be stricken, and it shall be said, “This is that for which you called.
Say, “Have you considered whether God destroys me and those with me or has mercy upon us? Who will protect the disbelievers from a painful punishment?
Say, “He is the Compassionate; we believe in Him and trust in Him, and you will soon know who is in manifest error.
Say, “Have you considered? Were your water to vanish into the ground, then who would bring you flowing water?
