Exalted is He who revealed the distinction (between truth and falsehood) to His servant for him to be a warner to all the world.
He to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and who did not adopt a son nor does He have any partner to share in the kingdom, and He created everything and arranged it in measure.
And they take gods besides Him who do not create anything and are themselves created, and they have no power over harm or benefit for themselves and are not in charge of death, life or the resurrection.
And those who reject (the truth) say: this is only a falsehood he invented and other people helped him with it; what they have come up with is wrong and dishonest.
And they say: stories of old which he has written down, and they are recited to him in the mornings and evenings.
Say: it has been revealed by Him who knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth, for He is forgiving and merciful.
And they say: what is the matter with this messenger that he eats food and walks in the market? Why was not an angel sent to him to be a warner with him?
And why was he not given a treasure or owns a garden to eat from it. And the wrongdoers say: you only follow a deranged man.
See how they coin likenesses for you and go astray and can´t find a way.
Exalted is He who, if He pleases, will give you better than that: gardens through which rivers flow, and will give you castles.
But they deny the hour, and We have promised for one who denies the hour a fire.
When it sees them from afar, they hear its fury and hissing.
And when they are thrown into a tight place there in which they are tied together, then they call for destruction.
Do not call for a single destruction today, but call for many destructions.
Say: is this better or the garden of eternity those who beware (of Allah) have been promised as their reward and destination?
They have there whatever they please, being immortal, a promise your Lord will make good.
And on the day He gathers them and what they serve besides Allah and says: did you lead these servants of Mine astray or did they lose the way?
They will say: glorified are You, it was not befitting for us to take protectors besides You, but You gave them and their fathers provision until they forgot the reminder and were ruined as people.
So they deny what you say and you can neither bring about change nor help, and whoever does wrong amongst you, We make him taste a great punishment.
And whenever We sent messengers before you they ate food and walked in the markets, and We made some of you a test for others as to whether you are patient, and your Lord is watching.
And those who do not look forward to meet Us say: why are not the angels sent down to us or do we see our Lord? They are arrogant in themselves and highly insulting.
On the day they see the angels there will be no good news for the sinful and they will order them to stay put.
And We turn to the work they did and turn it into dispersed dust.
The inhabitants of the garden will be in the best outcome that day and the most beautiful place of rest.
And on the day the sky, with the clouds, will be split open and the angels will come down in a descent;
On that day the true kingdom will belong to the Merciful, and it will be a difficult day for those who rejected (the truth).
And on the day the wrongdoer will bite his hands and say: woe to me, if only I had chosen a way with the messenger.
Woe upon woe to me, if only I did not choose this fellow for a friend.
He lead me astray from the reminder after it came to me, and the devil always abandons man.
And the messenger will say: oh my Lord, my people turned away from this Qur´an.
And likewise We arranged for every prophet an enemy from amongst the sinful, and your Lord is sufficient as a guide and helper.
And those who reject (the truth) say: why is not the Qur´an revealed to him in one go? In this manner We strengthen your heart and recite it gradually.
And whenever they bring you an example We bring instead the truth and best explanation.
Those who are gathered into hell on their faces, they are worst off and most astray from the way.
And We gave Musa (Moses) the book and made his brother Harun (Aaron) a deputy with him.
And We said: go both to the people who deny Our signs, then We annihilated them completely.
And the people of Nuh (Noah), when they denied the messengers, We drowned them and made them a sign for mankind, and We promised the wrongdoers a painful punishment.
And ´Ad and Thamud and the people around the waterhole (ar-Rass) and many generations between them.
For each of them We coined likenesses, and each of them We destroyed completely.
And they have come across the town on which an evil rain fell - did they not see it? But they did not hope for the resurrection.
And when they see you, they only make fun of you: is this the one whom Allah sent as a messenger?
He almost made us stray from our gods if we did not hold on to them. And soon will they know, when they see the punishment, who is most astray from the way.
Have you considered him who takes as his god his desire? Are you going to protect him?
Or do you think that most of them listen or understand? They are like the cattle; rather they are more astray from the way.
Do you not see how your Lord extends the shadow, and if He pleased He could have made it stationary? Then We made the sun a pointer for it.
Then We gradually reduce it towards Us.
And He is who made the night a cover for you and sleep for rest and made the day for rising.
And He is who sent the winds as good news in advance of His mercy, and We send clean water down from the sky.
To revive a dead land with it, and We give it to drink to many animals and people We have created.
And We have circulated it amongst them so that they would take heed, but most people refuse anything but rejection.
And if We pleased, We would have raised a warner in every town.
So do not obey those who reject (the truth) and fight them with it in a major effort.
And He is who mingled the two bodies of water, one sweet and palatable, the other salty and unpalatable, and He placed a barrier and impassable border between them.
And He is who created a human being from water and gave him lineage and relationships, and your Lord is powerful.
And they serve besides Allah what neither benefits nor harms them, and the one who rejects (the truth) is openly rebellious against his Lord.
And We only sent you as a bringer of good news and a warner.
Say: I do not ask you for a reward for it, but whoever pleases may choose a way towards his Lord.
And rely on the One who lives and does not die and glorify His praise, and He is sufficiently informed about the sins of His servants.
The One who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days, then He rose onto the throne, the Merciful, so ask anyone informed about Him.
And if they are told to prostrate to the Merciful, they say: who is the Merciful, are we to prostrate to whom you command us to? and it increases their disagreement.
Exalted is He who placed constellations in the sky and placed amongst them a light and a radiant moon.
And He is who made the night and day alternate for anyone who wishes to take heed or give thanks.
And the servants of the Merciful are those who walk gentle on the earth and when the ignorant address them, they say: peace.
And those who spend the night prostrating to their Lord and standing (in prayer).
And those who say: our Lord, avert from us the punishment of hell, for its punishment is unbearable.
It is a bad outcome and abode.
And those who when they spend are neither wasteful nor stingy, and the right balance is between the two.
And those who do not call on any other god alongside Allah and do not kill anyone whom Allah has forbidden except in justice and do not fornicate, and whoever does this commits a crime.
The punishment will be multiplied for him on the day of resurrection and he will remain in it disgraced.
Except for him who repents and believes and does good work, for those Allah replaces their bad deeds with good deeds, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
And whoever repents and does good, he truly repents to Allah.
And those who do not witness falsehood and when they pass by idle talk, they pass by dignified.
And those who when they are reminded of the signs of their Lord do not ignore them deaf and blind.
And those who say: our Lord, make our partners and offspring pleasing to look at and make us leaders for those who beware (of You).
Those will be rewarded a high station on account of their patience and will meet there greetings and peace.
They will remain there, a good outcome and abode.
Say: my Lord would not pay attention to you but for your prayer, yet you denied, so soon the inevitable will happen.
