The revelation of the book is from Allah the mighty and wise.
For We revealed to you the book with the truth, so serve Allah, making religion sincere for Him.
For sure to Allah belongs the sincere religion, and those who take protectors besides Him, (saying) we only serve them to bring us closer to Allah, Allah will judge between them regarding what they used to differ in, for Allah does not guide any liar and rejecter (of the truth).
If Allah wanted to adopt a son, He would have chosen what He pleased from what He created, glorified is He, He is Allah the one and dominant.
He created the heavens and the earth with truth, He makes the night cover the day and the day cover the night and made subservient the sun and the moon, each floats for a fixed term; for sure He is the mighty and forgiving.
He created you from a single soul, then made from it its partner and sent you from the cattle eight in pairs; He creates you in the wombs of your mothers in a successive creation in three layers of darkness; that is Allah your Lord, His is the kingdom, there is no god but Him, so where to are you diverted?
If you reject (the truth), then Allah is independent of you, yet He is not content with the rejection from His servants, and if you give thanks, He is content with you, and no-one burdened will carry another´s burden, then your return is to your Lord and He will inform you what you used to do, for He knows what is kept inside.
And if harm befalls man, he calls his Lord, turning to Him, then when He grants him a favour from Him, he forgets what he called for before and sets up partners for Allah to be lead astray from His way. Say: enjoy your rejection for a while, for you are of the inmates of the fire.
Or what about him who is devoted throughout the night in prostration and standing (in prayer), concerned about the hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord? Say: are those who know and those who do not know the same? For only those with understanding reflect.
Say: oh My servants who believe, beware of your Lord. For those who do good in this world will be good, and the earth of Allah is spacious, and the patient will be paid their reward without counting.
Say: I have been commanded to serve Allah, making religion sincere for Him.
And I have been commanded to be the first to submit (as Muslim).
Say: I fear, if I disobeyed my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous day.
Say: I serve Allah, making my religion sincere for Him.
So serve what you please besides Him. Say: the losers are those who have lost themselves and their families on the day of resurrection; for sure this is the clear loss.
They will be shut off by fire from above and from below, this is what Allah scares His servants with: oh My servants, beware of Me!
And those who shun the idols and do not serve them and turn to Allah, for them is good news, so give good news to My servants.
Those who listen to the speech and follow the best of it, those are the ones Allah has guided and those are the ones with understanding.
So he for whom the word about the punishment comes to pass, are you going to rescue him from the fire?
But for those who beware of their Lord will be chambers with chambers built above them and rivers flowing below them, a promise from Allah - Allah does not break His promise.
Do you not see how Allah sends water from the sky, then He makes it pass through springs, then He makes vegetation of different colour grow from it, then it dries out and you see it yellow, then He makes it crumble - in that is surely a reminder for those with understanding.
Consider then him whose chest Allah has expanded towards Islam and he follows a light from his Lord, and woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah, they are in clear error.
Allah has revealed the best account in a book replete with similarities from which the skins of those who fear their Lord shiver, then their skins and hearts incline to the remembrance of Allah. This is the guidance of Allah by which He guides whom He pleases, and whomever Allah lets go astray, there is no-one to guide him.
Consider then him who tries to keep the harm of the punishment off his face, and the wrongdoers will be told: taste what you have earned.
Those before them denied, then the punishment reached them from where they were not aware.
And Allah made them taste the humiliation in the life of this world, and the punishment of the hereafter is even greater if they only knew.
And We have coined for people every kind of likeness in this Qur´an so that they reflect.
An Arabic reading (Qur´an) without distortion, so that they beware (of Allah).
Allah coins the similitude of a man who is owned by quarrelling partners and a man who belongs exclusively to one man - are they alike? Allah is praised, but most of them don´t know.
You will die, and they will die.
Then on the day of resurrection you will argue before your Lord.
And who is more wrong than he who lies about Allah or denies truthfulness when it reaches him? Is not in hell a home for those who reject (the truth)?
And he who brings truthfulness and confirms it, those are the ones who beware (of Allah).
They will have what they please with their Lord, that is the reward for those who do good.
So that Allah ignores from them the worst they did and gives them their reward for the best they used to do.
Is not Allah enough for His servant? And they try to scare you with those besides Him, and whomever Allah lets go astray, there is no-one to guide him.
And whomever Allah guides, there is no-one to lead him astray. Is not Allah mighty and vengeful?
And if you asked them who created the heavens and the earth, they would say: Allah. Say: consider then what you call on besides Allah, if Allah wanted harm for me, would they remove His harm, or if He wanted mercy for me, would they withhold His mercy? Say: Allah is sufficient for me, on Him let all those rely who want to rely on something.
Say: oh my people, act as you do, I also act, then soon you will know.
Whom a humiliating punishment will reach and who will deserve a lasting punishment.
We have revealed to you the book for mankind with truth, so whoever wants to be guided, does so for his own good, and who goes astray, goes astray against himself, and you are not a guardian over them.
Allah receives the souls when they die, and those which did not die in their sleep, then He retains those for whom death has been decreed and sends the others until a fixed term, for in that are signs for people who reflect.
Or do they take mediators besides Allah? Say: even though they do not have power over anything nor understand?
Say: to Allah belongs all mediation, his is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, then you will return to Him.
And when he mentions Allah alone, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shudder, and when those besides Him are mentioned, then they rejoice.
Say: oh Allah, originator of the heavens and the earth who knows the unseen and the apparent, You judge between Your servants in what they used to differ in.
And if those who did wrong had all that is on earth and the like again, they would give it up to avert the harm of the punishment on the day of resurrection, and they become aware from Allah of what they did not count on.
And they become aware of what they committed and what they used to make fun of overcomes them.
And if harm befalls man, he calls Us, then when We grant him a favour from Us he says: I achieved this by knowledge, but it is a test and most of them don´t know.
Those before them already said this but what they gathered did not benefit them.
Then the evil of what they committed afflicted them, and the wrongdoers amongst these, the evil of what they committed will afflict them and they will not escape.
Do they not know that Allah expands the provision for whom He pleases and tightens it, for in that are signs for people who believe.
Say: oh My servants who have been extravagant against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah, for Allah forgives all sins, for He is the forgiving, merciful.
And turn to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment reaches you - then you will not be helped.
And follow the best of what has been revealed to you from your Lord before the punishment reaches you suddenly when you are unaware.
When a soul will say: what a loss that I neglected the cause of Allah when I was of those who made fun.
Or will say: if only Allah had guided me I would have been of those who bewared (of Allah).
Or will say when it sees the punishment: if only I could return and would be of those who do good.
But no, My signs came to you before and you denied them and were arrogant and were of those who rejected (the truth).
And on the day of resurrection you will see those who denied Allah with blackened faces - is not in hell a home for the arrogant?
And Allah will rescue those who bewared on account of their accomplishment, no harm will touch them and they will not worry.
Allah is the creator of everything and He is a guardian over everything.
To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, and those who reject the signs of Allah, they are the losers.
Do you command me to serve other than Allah you fools?
And it has been revealed to me and to those before me that if you associate (anything with Allah) your work is wasted and you will be of the losers.
But serve Allah and be of the grateful.
And they do not measure Allah´s true ability, and the whole earth will be in His grasp on the day of resurrection and the heavens rolled up in His right hand, glorified and exalted is He above what they associate.
And the horn will be blown and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on earth will be struck down except whom Allah pleases; then it will be blown again and they will stand up and see.
And the earth will shine with the light of its Lord, and the book will be laid out, and the prophets and witnesses will be brought and it will be decided between them with truth and they will not be wronged.
And every soul will be repaid what it did and He knows best what you do.
And those who rejected (the truth) will be driven to hell in clusters until when they reach it, its gates will be opened and its guards will tell them: did not messengers of your own reach you and recite to you the signs of your Lord and warn you about the meeting of this day of yours? They will say: sure, but the word about the punishment has come to pass about those who rejected (the truth).
They will be told: enter the gates of hell to remain there, and bad is the home of the arrogant.
And those who bewared of their Lord will be driven to the garden in clusters until when they reach it, its gates will have been opened and its guards will tell them: peace be with you, you were good, so enter it forever.
And they will say: praised is Allah who kept His promise and gave us the earth as an inheritance to settle in the garden where we please, so blessed is the reward of those who work.
And you will see the angels circling the throne, glorifying the praise of their Lord, and it has been decided between them with truth and it will be said: praised is Allah the Lord of all worlds.
