This Book (Al-Qur'an), which contains no doubt, is revealed by the Lord of the worlds
Do the people say: "He (Muhammad) has forged it?" Nay! It is the Truth from your Lord, so that you may warn a people to whom no Warner has come before you: so that they may receive guidance
It is Allah Who has created the heavens, the earth and all that is between them in six periods, then firmly established Himself on the Throne of Authority. You have no guardian or intercessor besides Him. Will you not then take heed
He plans all affairs from the heavens to the earth: then each affair ascends to Him (takes place) in a time period which, to your calculations, is one thousand years
Such is He, the Knower of all the hidden and the open, the Almighty, the Merciful
It is He Who has given the best form to everything that He has created. He originated the creation of man from clay
then automated the creation of his progeny by an extract of a despicable water
then He fashioned him in due proportion and breathed into him of His spirit. He gave you ears, eyes and heart; yet you are seldom thankful
They say: "What! Once we are lost in the earth, shall we be created afresh?" Nay! They deny the fact that they will ever meet their Lord
Say: "The angel of death (Izra‘il) who is assigned for you will carry off your souls and bring you back to your Lord."
If only you could visualize when the criminals will hang their heads before their Lord saying: "Our Lord! We have seen and we have heard; please send us back to the world and we will do good deeds: we are now convinced."
In response to that, it will be said: "Had We so willed, We could have given every soul its guidance. But My word which I had said has been fulfilled, that I shall fill hell with jinns and men all together."
Now taste the reward for your forgetting the meeting of this Day - We too have forgotten you now - taste the everlasting punishment in consequence of your misdeeds."
Only those people believe in Our revelations, who, when they are reminded of them, prostrate themselves in adoration and celebrate the praises of their Lord and are not puffed up with pride
Who forsake their beds and invoke their Lord with fear and hope; and they spend in charity out of the sustenance which We have given them
No one knows what delights of the eye have been kept hidden for them as a reward for their good deeds
Can he who is a believer be like the one who is a transgressor? Of course, they are not alike
As for those who believe and do good deeds, they shall be awarded the gardens of paradise as a reward of their labors
But those who transgress shall be cast into the fire. Whenever they try to escape from it, they shall be pushed back into it, and it will be said to them: "Taste the punishment of the fire which you used to deny."
We shall certainly make them taste the lighter torment in this life before the greater punishment of the hereafter, so that they may return to the Right Way
Who could be more unjust than the one who is reminded of the revelations of his Lord and he turns away from them? Surely We shall take vengeance on such criminals
We gave the Book to Moses - so be not in doubt for receiving this Book which meets the same criteria - and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel
When they showed patience, We appointed from among them leaders giving guidance under Our command so long as they continued to have faith in Our revelations
Surely your Lord will decide between them, on the Day of Resurrection, concerning those matters wherein they differ among themselves
Do they not learn a lesson from the historical events of how many generations We have destroyed before them in whose dwelling-places they move about? Surely there are signs in this. Do they not listen
Do they not see how We drive the rain to the parched lands and therefrom bring forth crops of which they and their cattle eat? Have they no vision
Still they say: "When will this judgement take place, if you are telling the truth?"
Tell them: "On the Day of Judgement it will be of no benefit to the unbelievers even if they believe, since at that time they will not be granted a respite."
Therefore, pay no heed to them, and wait as they are waiting
