Exalted is He in whose hand is the kingdom and He is able to do anything.
The One who created death and life to test you as to who does the best deeds, and He is the mighty and forgiving.
The One who created seven heavens in layers; you don´t see any neglect in the creation of Allah. Look again, do you see any gaps?
Then look yet another time, your gaze will return to you weak and exhausted.
And We have adorned the heaven of this world with lights and made them a repellent for the devils and promised them the punishment of the fire.
And for those who reject their Lord is the punishment of hell, a bad destination.
When they are thrown in it they hear it gulping and bubble up.
It almost bursts with anger, whenever a group is thrown into it, its guards ask them: did not a warner reach you?
They will say: sure, a warner reached us, but we denied and said: Allah has not revealed anything, you are just in a great delusion.
And they will say: if we listened or pondered, we would not be inmates of the fire.
So they acknowledge their sins, so away with the inmates of the fire.
For those who fear their Lord in secret is forgiveness and a great reward.
So conceal your speech or disclose it, He knows what is kept inside.
Does not He who created know? And He is the kind and informed.
He is who made the earth stretch out for you, so walk on its back and eat of His provision, and towards Him is the resurrection.
Are you safe that He who is in the heaven will not make the earth swallow you up and it will quake?
Or are you safe that He who is in the heaven will not sent a storm against you, then you will know what My warning means?
And those before them denied, then how was My rebuttal!
Don´t they look at the birds above them extending and retracting their wings? None but the Owner of Mercy holds them up, for He sees everything.
Or who will be a force to help you besides the Owner of Mercy? Those who reject (the truth) deceive themselves.
Or who will provide for you if He withholds His provision? But they persist in insolence and resentment.
Is he who walks with his face stuck to the ground better guided or who walks upright on a straight path?
Say: He is who brought you into existence and gave you hearing and eyesight and hearts, little thanks you give.
Say: He is who spread you out on earth, and to Him will you be gathered.
And they say: when will this promise happen if you are truthful?
Say: the knowledge is with Allah, and I am only a clear warner.
Then when they see it close by, the faces of those who reject (the truth) will be gloomy and they are told: this is what you asked for.
Say: have you considered if Allah destroyed me and those with me, or has mercy on us, who will protect those who reject (the truth) from a painful punishment?
Say: He is the Owner of Mercy, we believe in Him and rely on Him, then you will soon know who is in clear error.
Say: have you considered if your water would turn brackish, who will bring you flowing water?
