Fatir (The Angels, Originator, The Creator)
as rendered by Mohammad Shafi

Mohammad Shafi rendition of Surah The Angels, Originator, The Creator(Fatir)
35:1 The praise is for Allah, Who originated the heavens and the earth, Who made the angels as messengers flying on wings, two, three, and four. He increases in creation what He wills. Allah is indeed Capable of doing anything.
35:2 Whatever of mercy Allah opens for mankind, there is none to wit old it. And what He wit olds none can send it thereafter. And He is Omnipotent, the Wise One.
35:3 O Mankind! Recall Allah's favours upon you. Is there any creator besides Allah who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? There is none worthy of worship but He. How then are you fooled by falsehood?
35:4 And if they reject you, Messengers before you were rejected too. And to Allah return all matters.
35:5 O mankind! Allah's promise is indeed true. So let not the lives of this world deceive you, nor let the arch-deceiver (the Satan) deceive you about Allah.
35:6 The devil is indeed your enemy, so take him for an enemy. He only invites his followers to be companions of the burning Fire.
35:7 Those who suppress the Truth, for them is a severe punishment. And those who believe and do good deeds, for them is forgiveness and a great reward.
35:8 Does he, whose evil deed is made to look enticing to him, consider it good!? Now, indeed, Allah lets go astray whom He wills and guides to the Right Path whom He wills. So let not yourself (Prophet) get affected with anxiety for them. Allah does indeed know what they do.
35:9 And Allah it is Who sends the winds to raise a cloud. Then We drive it on to a dead land, and therewith give life to the earth after it had been dead. Likewise will the Resurrection happen!
35:10 If any do seek power and glory, then to Allah belongs all power and glory! To Him do words of purity rise, and He does exalt the good deed. And those who plan evil, for them there shall be a severe punishment! And their plan will perish.
35:11 And Allah created you from dust, then from fertilized ovum, and then He made male and female pairs of you. And no female bears, or delivers, except with His knowledge. And no one is granted a long life, or a shortened one, but it is all recorded in a book. This is indeed easy for Allah.
35:12 And the two seas are not alike: one sweet, thirst-queching, pleasant to drink; and the other salty, bitter. And from both you eat fresh flesh and bring out jewels which you wear. And you see the ships in the sea cut through its water so that you might seek His bounty and be thankful.
35:13 Allah makes the night enter the day, and He makes the day enter the night. And He has made the sun and the moon subservient, each pursuing its course till an appointed time. That is Allah, your Lord; His is the kingdom! And those whom you pray to besides Him own not even so much as skin of a date-stone.
35:14 If you pray to them, they hear not your call; and if they hear, they cannot answer you. And on the day of Resurrection they will deny you worshipped them besides Allah. And none can give you information like the One All-Aware!
35:15 O mankind! It is you who are in need of Allah. And Allah is the Self-Sufficient One, the Praised One.
35:16 If He so wills, He can destroy you and bring a new creation.
35:17 And this is not at all beyond Allah's power.
35:18 And no bearer of burdens shall bear another's burden. And if any body weighed down by a burden calls attention to its heavy load, nothing of it will be carried by another, even though the latter be near of kin. You can warn only those who fear their Lord without seeing Him, and have established the Prayer. And whoever has purified himself, purifies only for his own good. And to Allah is the final destination.
35:19 And the blind and the one who is able to see are not alike.
35:20 Nor are the darkness and the light alike.
35:21 Nor are the shade and the heat alike.
35:22 And the living and the dead are not alike. Allah does indeed make one hear whom He wills. And you cannot make those ones hear who are in the graves.
35:23 You (Prophet Muhammad) are but a warner!
35:24 We have indeed sent you with the Truth as a bearer of good news and a warner. And not a people, but a warner had been among them!
35:25 And if they reject you, those before them did also reject! Their Messengers came to them with clear signs, and with scriptures, and with the illuminating Book.
35:26 Then I seized those who suppressed the Truth. And how severe in effect was My forsaking them!!
35:27 Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the clouds, and then We bring out therewith fruits of various hues and kinds? And in the mountains are streaks, white and red of various shades and very black.
35:28 And, similarly, there are mankind, beasts and cattle of various hues and colours. Only those of His subjects fear Allah who possess knowledge. Allah is indeed Omnipotent, Forgiving.
35:29 Those indeed who have recited the Book of Allah, established the Prayer and spent secretly and openly out of what We have given them, look forward to a bargain that never fails.
35:30 So that He may pay them back their rewards fully and give them more out of His grace. He is indeed Forgiving, Appreciative.
35:31 And that which We have revealed to you of the Book, that is the Truth, confirming that which is before it. Allah is indeed Aware, Observer of His subjects.
35:32 And then We have given the Book in inheritance to those whom We have chosen from among Our subjects. And of them is he who wrongs himself, and of them is he who takes a middle course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah's permission. That is the great favour.
35:33 Gardens of perpetuity they enter into, to be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearls. And their dress therein is silken.
35:34 And they say, "The praise is for Allah, Who has taken away the sorrow from us! Our Lord is indeed certainly Forgiving, Appreciative."
35:35 "Who by His grace has settled us in a house abiding forever. Neither any calamity nor any fatigue afflicts us therein."
35:36 And those who suppress the Truth, for them is Hell-fire. It does not finish them that they die there, (but they continue to suffer without dying) and the punishment thereof is not lightened for them. We thus do retribute every ingrate.
35:37 And therein they wail, "Our Lord! Take us out. We will do good deeds — other than what we used to do!" "Did We not give you a long life so that he, who would, could do it? And there came to you the warner! So suffer now; for, wicked persons have no one to help them."
35:38 Allah is indeed the Knower of the unseen in the heavens and the earth. He does inded know the secrets of the minds.
35:39 It is He Who has made you His representatives on the earth. So whoever suppresses the Truth, suppresses it to his own detriment. And their suppression increases the suppressors in nothing but hatred with their Lord. And their suppression increases the suppressors in nothing but loss.
35:40 Say, "Have you seen your gods whom you pray to besides Allah? Show me what sort of earth they have created! Or have they any share in the heavens? Or, have We given them a Book a clear edict whereof they follow?" Nay! The wicked people hold out promises to one another only to deceive.
35:41 Indeed, Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they degenerate. And if they degenerate, none can uphold them after He lets them degenrate. He is indeed Forbearing, Forgiving.
35:42 And they swore their strongest oaths, by Allah, that if a warner came to them, they would be better guided than any of the communities. And when a warner did come to them, it only increased their aversion (to right guidance).
35:43 Displaying arrogance on earth and planning evil. And the evil plan affects none but the planners themselves. Do they then wait for nothing but the way the ancients were dealt with? But you will find neither change nor deviation in Allah's way.
35:44 Do they not travel on earth and see what end those before them met with? And those before them were stronger in power than they! And Allah is not such that anything in the heavens or the earth could frustrate Him. He is indeed Knowledgeable, Powerful.
35:45 And were Allah to get hold of people for punishments they earn, He would not leave a single creature living! But He gives them time till an appointed term. And when their terms end, then, of course, Allah does have the overall picture of His subjects. h
