32:1  Alif Lam Mi
32:2  This scripture, free from all doubt, has been sent down from the Lord of the Worlds
32:3  Yet they say, ‘Muhammad has made it up.’ No indeed! It is the Truth from your Lord for you [Prophet], to warn a people who have had no one to warn them before, so that they may be guided
32:4  It is God who created the heavens and the earth and everything between them in six Days. Then He established Himself on the Throne. You [people] have no one but Him to protect you and no one to intercede for you, so why do you not take heed
32:5  He runs everything, from the heavens to the earth, and everything will ascend to Him in the end, on a Day that will measure a thousand years in your reckoning
32:6  Such is He who knows all that is unseen as well as what is seen, the Almighty, the Merciful
32:7  who gave everything its perfect form. He first created man from clay
32:8  then made his descendants from an extract of underrated fluid
32:9  Then He moulded him; He breathed from His Spirit into him; He gave you hearing, sight, and minds. How seldom you are grateful
32:10  They say, ‘What? When we have disappeared into the earth, shall we really be created anew?’ In fact, they deny the meeting with their Lord
32:11  Say, ‘The Angel of Death put in charge of you will reclaim you, and then you will be brought back to your Lord.’
32:12  [Prophet], if only you could see the wrongdoers hang their heads before their Lord: ‘Our Lord, now that we have seen and heard, send us back and we shall do good. [Now] we are convinced.’
32:13  ‘If it had been Our will, We could certainly have given every soul its true guidance, but My words have come true. “I shall be sure to fill Hell with jinn and men together.”
32:14  So since you ignored the meeting on this Day of yours, now We shall ignore you: taste the lasting suffering for all you have done.’
32:15  The only people who truly believe in Our messages are those who, when they are reminded of them, bow down in worship, cele-brate their Lord’s praises, and do not think themselves above this
32:16  Their sides shun their beds in order to pray to their Lord in fear and hope; they give to others some of what We have given them
32:17  No soul knows what joy is kept hidden in store for them as a reward for what they have done
32:18  So, is someone who believes equal to someone who defies God? No, they are not equal
32:19  Those who believe and do good deeds will have Gardens awaiting them as their home and as a reward for what they have done
32:20  As for those who defy God, their home will be the Fire. Whenever they try to escape it, they will be driven back into it, and they will be told, ‘Taste the torment of the Fire, which you persistently denied.’
32:21  We shall certainly make them taste a nearer torment [in this life] prior to the greater torment, so that perhaps they may return [to the right path]
32:22  Who does more wrong than someone who, when messages from his Lord are recited to him, turns away from them? We shall inflict retribution on the guilty
32:23  We gave Moses the Scripture- so [Muhammad] do not doubt that you are receiving it- and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel
32:24  When they became steadfast and believed firmly in Our messages, We raised leaders among them, guiding them according to Our command
32:25  [Prophet], it is your Lord who will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning their differences
32:26  Is it not a lesson for them [to see] how many generations We destroyed before them, in whose homes they now walk? There truly are signs in this- do they not hear
32:27  Do they not consider how We drive rain to the barren land, and with it produce vegetation from which their cattle and they themselves eat? Do they not see
32:28  And they say, ‘When will this Decision be, if you are telling the truth?’
32:29  Say, ‘On the Day of Decision it will be no use for the disbelievers to believe; they will be granted no respite.’
32:30  So [Prophet], turn away from them and wait: they too are waiting
