34:1  Praised is Allah to whom belongs what is in the heavens and what is on earth, and He is praised in the hereafter and He is wise and informed.
34:2  He knows what enters the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the sky and what ascends through it, and He is merciful and forgiving.
34:3  And those who reject (the truth) say: the hour will not come upon us. Say: but no, by my Lord, it will come upon you. He knows the unseen; not the weight of a tiny speck escapes Him in the heavens and on earth, nor what is smaller than that nor what is bigger, but it is in a clear record.
34:4  So that He rewards those who believe and do good work, theirs will be forgiveness and generous provision.
34:5  And those who strive to obscure Our signs, theirs is a punishment of painful affliction.
34:6  And those who were given knowledge see that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth and guides to the path of the mighty and praiseworthy.
34:7  And those who reject (the truth) say: shall we direct you to a man who informs you that once you are totally disintegrated you will be in a new creation.
34:8  Has he invented a lie against Allah or is he mad? But those who do not believe in the hereafter are in punishment and extensive error.
34:9  Do they not see the sky and earth before and behind them? If We pleased, We could make the earth swallow them up or drop a piece of the sky on them. In that is a sign for every repenting servant.
34:10  And We gave Dawud (David) favours from Us: oh mountains, and oh birds, echo his worship; and We made the iron pliable for him.
34:11  So that you make (protective) garments and design them well; and do good work, for I see what you do.
34:12  And to Sulayman (Solomon) (We subjected) the wind - it took a month to go and a month to return - and We let a spring of brass flow for him, and (subjected) of the Jinn who worked in front of him with the permission of his Lord, and any of them who defies Our command, We make him taste the punishment of the fire.
34:13  They make for him whatever he wants of elevated structures, statues, large watering basins and permanent cooking vessels: be grateful, oh family of Dawud (David), and few of My servants are grateful.
34:14  Then when We decreed death for him, only the earth worms who ate his staff pointed them to his death, so when it fell apart, it became clear to the Jinn that if they had known the unseen, they would not have remained in the humiliating punishment.
34:15  There was a sign for Saba´ (Sheba) in their homes: gardens both on the right and the left, eat from the provision of your Lord and thank Him, a good land and a forgiving Lord.
34:16  But they turned away, so We sent against them a flood from the dam and replaced both their gardens with gardens of bitter food and tamarisk and some cedar trees.
34:17  This is how We punished them for having been ungrateful, and do We not only punish the ungrateful?
34:18  And We placed between them and the towns We had blessed clearly visible towns and facilitated travel between them: travel there night and day safely.
34:19  But they said: our Lord, extend our journeys, and they wronged themselves, so We made them history and scattered them completely; for in this are signs for everyone who is patient and grateful.
34:20  And Iblis (the devil) made his thought about them come true and they followed him except a group of the believers.
34:21  And he had no authority over them other than that We would tell apart who believes in the hereafter from who is in doubt of it, and your Lord is keeper of everything.
34:22  Say: call those whom you claim besides Allah, they do not own the weight of a tiny speck in the heavens nor on earth and they have no share in them and He does not take any support from them.
34:23  And intercession does not benefit with Him except for whom permission has been given, until when their hearts have calmed down they say: what did your Lord say? They say: the truth, and He is the exalted and great.
34:24  Say: who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? Say: Allah, and we or you are either upon guidance or in clear error.
34:25  Say: you will not be asked about what we have committed and we will not be asked about what you do.
34:26  Say: our Lord will bring us together, then He will judge between us in truth, and He is the knowing judge.
34:27  Say: show me those you have attached to Him as partners, but no, He is Allah the mighty and wise.
34:28  And We have only sent you as a bringer of good news and warner to all of mankind, but most people don´t know.
34:29  And they say: when will this promise happen if you are truthful?
34:30  Say: you have an appointed day which you cannot hold back by an hour nor bring forward.
34:31  And those who reject (the truth) say: we will not believe in this Qur´an nor that which came before it, and if you saw the wrongdoers standing before their Lord, some of them responding to others, with those who were weak saying to those who were arrogant: if it had not been for you we would have been believers.
34:32  Those who were arrogant will say to those who were weak: did we prevent you from the guidance after it reached you? But you were sinners.
34:33  And those who were weak will say to those who were arrogant: but the (constant) scheming night and day when you commanded us to reject Allah and set up partners for Him. And they start regretting when they see the punishment, and We have placed cuffs around the necks of those who reject (the truth), are they punished for anything other than what they did?
34:34  And never have We sent a warner to a town but its affluent people said: we reject what you were sent with.
34:35  And they said: we have more wealth and children and we will not be punished.
34:36  Say: my Lord expands the provision for whom He pleases and tightens it, but most people don´t know.
34:37  And it is not your wealth or children which bring you closer to Us, but whoever believes and does good work, those will be rewarded twice for what they did and will be safe in chambers.
34:38  And those who strive to undermine Our signs will be presented for punishment.
34:39  Say: my Lord expands the provision for whom of His servants He pleases and tightens it, and whatever you spend, He replaces it, and He is the best provider.
34:40  And on the day He gathers them all, He will then say to the angels: did these serve you?
34:41  They will say: glorified are You, You are our protector without them, but they served the Jinn, most of them believed in them.
34:42  So today they cannot benefit nor harm each other, and We will say to the wrongdoers: taste the punishment of the fire which you used to deny.
34:43  And when Our clear signs are recited to them they say: this is only a man who wants to divert you from what your forefathers served. And they say: this is only a falsehood he invented. And those who reject the truth say when it comes to them: this is only plain magic.
34:44  And We did not give them a book which they study nor did We send a warner to them before you.
34:45  And those before them denied, and they did not even achieve a tenth of what We had given them, so they denied My messenger, and how was My rebuttal!
34:46  Say: I only admonish you with one thing: that you stand before Allah together or alone and reflect: there is no madness in your companion, for he is only a warner to you of a pending severe punishment.
34:47  Say: I did not ask any reward from you, but it is for you, for my reward is only upon Allah and He is a witness to everything.
34:48  Say: my Lord pronounces the truth, He knows the unseen.
34:49  Say: the truth has come and falsehood does not bring about or confirm anything.
34:50  Say: if I go astray, then I go astray at my own loss, and if I am guided, then due to what my Lord has revealed to me, for He listens and is near.
34:51  And if you saw when they are terror-stricken without escape and taken from nearby.
34:52  And they say: we believe in it, and to where will they return from afar?
34:53  And they rejected it before and made predictions about the unseen from afar.
34:54  And they are prevented from what they wanted just like it happened to their kind before, for they were in severe doubt.
