Most exalted is the One in whose hand is the (absolute) sovereignty (of the heavens and of earth); and He is capable of doing whatever He wills.
He is the One Who created life and death so that He may let you experience hardship in order to identify those among you who would do better. Lo! He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving,
Who has created the seven heavens in layers, you can see no imperfection in the creation of the Most Beneficent. Keep on looking, do you see any flaw?
Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you humbled while it is fatigued.
We adorned the lowest heavens with lamps, making them as missile launch facilities to strike against the devils. For them, We have prepared a punishment of the blazing Fire (in the ‘Hereafter’).
(We have also prepared) for those who lack Faith in their Lord, the punishment of ‘Hellfire’. What a dreadful journey’s end!
When they are flung therein, they will hear a loud moaning while it boils.
It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is flung therein, its keepers will ask them: "Did no warner come to you?"
They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come unto us, but we belied him and said: “Allâh has revealed nothing. You are only in a utter deception.”
They also say: "If we had heard or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the denizens of the blazing Fire."
Thus, they confessed their sins: Woe unto the ‘Denizens of the blazing Fire’!
Indeed, those who show honor and reverence for their Lord in secret will have forgiveness and a great reward.
Whether you conceal your word or disclose it, (be sure that) Allâh is All- Aware of what is in the hearts.
Would He Who has created not know? while He is the Subtle, the All-Aware.
He is the One Who has made the earth subservient unto you, so walk in the path thereof and eat of His provision. To Him will be the resurrection.
Do you feel secure that the One Who is in the heavens will not cause you to sink into the earth when it is quivering violently?
Or do you feel secure that the One Who is in the heavens will not send against you a violent whirlwind? Then you will come to know how serious the warning was.
Indeed, those who lived before them belied (the ‘Messengers’ of Allâh). How (dreadful) was then My Denunciation!
Do they not see the birds above them spreading out their wings and closing them? Not anything upholds them except the Most Gracious. Indeed, He is the All-Seer of everything.
Or who is it that will be a host for you to help you against (the divine retribution of) the Most Gracious (Lord)? Those who lack Faith in Allâh are in nothing but delusion.
Or who is it that will be provide you with means of sustenance if He withholds His provisions? Nay, but they persist in impudence and aversion.
Is he who walks with his head hanging down, more rightly guided, or he who walks upright on a straight path?
Say: "He is the One Who brought you into being, and endowed you with hearing, sight, and hearts. Little gratitude you show!
Say: "He is the One who multiplies you in earth, and to Him will you be gathered together."
They say: “When will the promise (‘Day of Judgment’) be fulfilled, if you are truthful?"
Say, "Such knowledge is with Allâh. I am only a manifest warner (who gives humanity sufficient warning about how to avoid ‘Hellfire’)."
But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who excessively indulge in disbelief (in Allâh) will be distressed. It will be said (unto them): "This is what you used to call for."
Say: "Have you not deemed that whether Allâh decides to obliterate me and those who are with me, or to shower us with His Mercy, who is there to protect those who lack Faith in Allâh from a painful punishment?"
Say: "He is the Most Gracious. We believe in Him; and we do depend on Him with full trust. Thus, you will come to know the one who is in manifest error."
Say: "Have you deemed that if it happens that your water sinks away, who then, will bring you flowing water?!
