there is no doubt that this book has been sent down exactly as it is from the Lord of the Worlds.
Or do they say, "He invented it?" Rather, it is the Truth from your Lord, so that you will warn a people to whom no warner has come before you, and that they may be guided.
It is God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days; then He sat down on the Throne of His majesty. Apart from Him, You have no one to protect you or to intercede for you, so, will you not remember this?
He manages everything from heaven to earth; then, it will all ascend to Him on a Day whose measure is a thousand years as you count them.
Such is He, the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Almighty, the Merciful-to-all
He perfected everything which He created, and began the creation of the human being from clay;
then He made his discendents from the extract of a common fluid;
then He formed him and breathed into him from His spirit, and made hearing and vision and hearts for you, yet you seldom are grateful.
And they ask, "When we have decayed into the earth, will we be created anew?" In fact, they are denying that they will meet their Lord.
Say, "The angel of death, who has been put in charge of you, will retrieve you. Then you will be brought back to your Lord
If you could only see those who forced others to reject Our messages, bowing their heads before their Lord, [saying], "Our Lord, We have seen and heard, so send us back, and we will do good, we are [now] certain."
If it had been Our will, We could have given every soul its guidance, but My word came to be true: "I will surely fill up Hell with jinn and human beings all together.
Taste [punishment]. Because you ignored the meeting of this Day of your Judgment, We will ignore you, so taste the punishment of eternity for all you have done."
True believers in Our signs are those who, when they are reminded of them, fall down in prostration, and praise their Lord's limitless glory, and do not think they are too arrogant to do it.
They forsake their beds as they call upon their Lord in fear and hope, and they share with others from what We have provided them.
No soul knows what delight lies in store for them; a reward for what they have done.
Is a believer the same as one who was defiantly disobedient? [No], they are not equal.
As for those who believed and did good deeds, there will be Gardens of Refuge for them as an accommodation for what they have done.
But as for those who defiantly disobeyed, their refuge is the Fire. Every time they want to get out of it, they will be returned to it, while being told, "Taste the punishment of the Fire which you used to deny."
However, We will first let them taste a lesser punishment [on earth] prior to the greater punishment, so that perhaps they may return [to the right path].
Who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the signs of his Lord and then turns away from them? We will make those who force others to reject God's messages to pay a price.
We gave Moses the Book, so do not be in doubt that you are receiving the same [revelation]. And we made the Book guidance for the Children of Israel.
We raised leaders from among them who, as long as they were steadfast and believed firmly in Our messages, guided them according to Our command.
Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection regarding their differences.
Hasn't it become clear to them yet how many generations We destroyed before them, through whose ruined homes they now walk? In that are signs; don't they listen?
Have they not seen that We drive rain to barren land and bring forth vegetation from which they and their livestock eat? Do they not see?
They say, "When will this judgment be, if you are telling the truth?"
Say, "On the Day of Judgment, it will be of no use for the unbelievers to believe, nor will they be given amnesty."
So turn away from them and wait. They are waiting.
