Bilal Muhammad (2013 Edition) rendition of Surah The Angels, Originator, The Creator(Fatir)
---
35:1 Praise God, Who created out of nothing the heavens and the earth. Who made the angels messengers with wings, two, three, or four pairs. He adds to creation as He pleases, for God has power over all things. 
35:2 What God, out of his mercy, bestows on humanity, none can withhold. What He does withhold none can grant besides Him, and He is the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom. 
35:3 O humanity, call to mind the grace of God to you, is there a creator other than God, to give you sustenance from heaven or earth? There is no god but He. How then are you deluded from the truth? 
35:4 And if they reject you, so were messengers rejected before you. All affairs go back to God for decision. 
35:5 O humanity, certainly the promise of God is true. So do not let this present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver delude you about God. 
35:6 Indeed Satan is an enemy to you. So treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents so that they may become companions of the blazing fire. 
35:7 For those who reject God is a terrible penalty, but for those who believe and work righteous deeds is forgiveness, and a magnificent reward. 
35:8 Then is he, to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring, so that he looks upon it as good, equal to one who is rightly guided? For God leaves to stray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. So do not let your heart go out to them with regret, for God knows well all that they do. 
35:9 It is God Who sends the winds, so that they raise up the clouds, and We drive them to a land that is dead, and revive the earth with it after its death. Even then the resurrection will come. 
35:10 If any seek praise and power, to God belong all praise and power. To Him mounts up all words of purity. It is He Who exalts each deed of righteousness. Those who hatch harmful plots, for them is a penalty terrible, and the plotting of such will be void of success. 
35:11 And God created you from dust, then from a zygote, then He made you in pairs, and no female conceives nor delivers, except with His knowledge, nor is a person long-lived, granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life, except if it is in a decree ordained. All this is easy for God. 
35:12 Nor are the two bodies of flowing water alike, the one palatable, sweet, and pleasant to drink, and the other, salty and bitter. Yet from each kind of water do you eat meat fresh and tender, and you extract ornaments to wear, and you see the ships in it that plow the waves, so that you may seek the bounty of God, and that you may be grateful. 
35:13 He merges night into day, and He merges day into night, and He has subjected the Sun and the Moon to His law. Each one runs its course for a term appointed. Such is God your Lord. To Him belongs all control, and those whom you invoke besides Him have no power in the least. 
35:14 If you invoke them, they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen, they could not answer you. On the Day of Accountability, they will reject your partnership, and none can inform you like the One Who is acquainted with all things. 
35:15 O you people, it is you who have need of God, but God is the One free of all wants, worthy of all praise. 
35:16 If He so pleased, He could remove you and bring about a new creation. 
35:17 Nor is that difficult for God. 
35:18 Nor can a bearer of burdens bear another’s burdens. If one heavily laden should call another to his load, not the least portion of it can be carried by the other, even if they are nearly related. You can only advise those who fear their Lord unseen, and establish prayer. And whoever purifies himself does so for the benefit of his own soul, and the destination is to God. 
35:19 The blind and the seeing are not alike, 
35:20 Nor are the depths of darkness and the light, 
35:21 Nor are the shade and the heat of the Sun. 
35:22 Nor are those alike who are living and those who are dead. God can make any whom He wills to hear, but you cannot make those to hear who are in graves. 
35:23 You are no other than a warner. 
35:24 Indeed We have sent you in truth as a bearer of good news, and as a warner, and there never were a people without a warner having lived among them. 
35:25 And if they reject you, so did their predecessors, to whom came messengers with clear signs, books of prophecies, and the book of enlightenment. 
35:26 In the end, I punished those who rejected faith, and how terrible was My rejection of them. 
35:27 Do you not see that God sends down rain from the sky? With it We bring out produce of various colors. And in the mountains are tracts white and red, of various shades of color, and intensely black. 
35:28 And among human beings, and crawling creatures, and livestock, are those of various colors. Those that are indeed conscious of God, among His servants, who have knowledge, for God is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving. 
35:29 Those who recite the Book of God, establish prayer, and give out of what We have provided for them, secretly and openly, hope for a deal that will never fail. 
35:30 For He will pay them their due; no, He will give them more out of His bounty, for He is Oft-Forgiving, most ready to appreciate. 
35:31 That which We have revealed to you of the Book is the truth reflecting the truth of what was revealed before it, for God is surely, to His servants, well acquainted and fully observant. 
35:32 And We have given the Book for inheritance, to those of Our servants as We chose, but there are among them, some who wrong their own souls, some who follow a middle course, and some who are, by God's permission, foremost in good deeds, and that is the highest blessing. 
35:33 They will enter Gardens of eternity, therein they will be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls, and their garments will be of silk. 
35:34 And they will say, “Praise God, Who has removed from us all sorrow, for our Lord is indeed oft-forgiving, ready to appreciate. 
35:35 “He Who has, out of His bounty, settled us in a home that will last. Neither fatigue nor sense of weariness will touch us therein.” 
35:36 But those who reject God, for them will be the fire of hell. No term will be determined for them, so that they can die, nor will its penalty be lightened for them. This is how We reward every ungrateful one. 
35:37 Therein will they cry aloud, “Our Lord, let us out. We will work righteously, not the deeds we used to do.” “Did We not give you a long enough life so that all could take the advice? And the warner came to you. So taste this, for the wrongdoers there is no helper.” 
35:38 Indeed God knows all the hidden things of the heavens and the earth, and indeed He has full knowledge of all that is in the heart. 
35:39 It is He Who has made you inheritors in the earth. If any then reject God, their rejection will work against them. Their rejection only adds to disbelief for the unbelievers in the sight of their Lord. Their rejection only adds to their undoing. 
35:40 Say, “Have you seen these partners of yours whom you call upon besides God?Show Me what it is they have created in the earth. Or have they a share in the heavens? Or have We given them a book from which they can derive guidance? No, the wrongdoers promise each other nothing but delusions. 
35:41 It is God Who sustains the heavens and the earth, lest they cease to function, and if they should fail, there is none, not one, who can sustain them thereafter. Indeed He is Most Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving. 
35:42 They swore their strongest oath by God that if a warner came to them, they would follow his guidance better than any other people, but when a warner came to them, it only increased their flight, 
35:43 On account of their arrogance in the land, and their plotting of evil. But the plotting of evil will only hem in the authors of it. Now they are looking for the way the ancients were dealt with? But no change will you find in God's Sunnah, and no finale will you find in God's Sunnah. 
35:44 Do they not travel through the earth, and see what the end of those before them was, though they were superior to them in strength? Nor is God to be escaped by anything in the heavens or on earth, for He is All Knowing, All Powerful. 
35:45 If God were to punish people according to what they deserve, He would not leave on its back a single one of these creatures, but He gives them respite for a stated term. When their term expires, then indeed God has in His sight all His servants.
