A revelation from God, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer
A book of verses explained in detail. A Quran in Arabic, for people who know
Giving good news and advice. Yet most of them turn away, so they do not hear
They say, “Our hearts are under veils, concealed from that which you invite us, and in our ears is deafness, and between us and you is a screen. So do what you will, and for us, we will do what we will.
Say, “I am only a human being like you. It is revealed to me by inspiration that your God is one God. So stand true to Him, and ask for His forgiveness.” And woe to those who join gods with God
Those who do not give zakat, and who deny the hereafter
For those who believe and do deeds of righteousness is a reward that will never fail
Say, is it that you deny Him Who created the earth in two days? And do you join equals with Him? He is the Lord of all the worlds
He set on the earth mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measure therein all things to give them nourishment in due proportion, in four days, in accordance with the needs of those who seek them
Moreover, He comprehended in His design, the sky while it was dust. He said to it and to the earth, “Come together, willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “We come in willing obedience.
So He completed them as seven firmaments in two days, and He assigned to each heaven its duty and command. And We adorned the lower heaven with lights and with guards. This is His decree, the Exalted in Might, Full of Knowledge
But if they turn away say, “I have warned you of a stunning punishment like that which overtook the ‘Ad and the Thamud.
Behold, the messengers came to them, from before them and behind them saying, “Serve none but God.” They said, “If our Lord had willed, He would certainly have sent down angels. So indeed we reject your mission.
Now the ‘Ad behaved arrogantly through the land, against all truth and reason and said, “Who is superior to us in strength?” What, did they not see that God, Who created them, was Superior to them in strength? But they continued to reject Our signs
So We sent against them a furious wind through days of disaster, that We might give them a taste of a penalty of humiliation in this life, but the penalty of the hereafter will be more crushing, and they will find no help
As for the Thamud, We gave them guidance, but they preferred blindness to guidance. So the stunning punishment of humiliation seized them because of what they earned
But We delivered those who believed and practiced righteousness
On the day that the enemies of God will be gathered together to the fire, they will be marched in ranks
Then, when they reach the fire, their hearing, their sight, and their skin will bear witness against them, as to all their deeds
They will say to their skin, “Why do you bear witness against us?” They will say, “God has given us speech, He Who gives speech to everything. He created you for the first time, and to Him were you to return
“You did not seek to protect yourselves, so that your hearing, your sight, and your skin would not bear witness against you. But you thought that God did not know many of the things you used to do
“But this thought of yours which you entertained concerning your Lord has brought you to destruction, and you became of those utterly lost.
Even if then they have patience, the fire will be a home for them, and if they beg for favor, favor they will not receive
And We have destined for them close companions, who made alluring to them that which was before them and behind them, and the accusation among the previous generations of jinn and humans who have passed away is proven against them, for they are utterly lost
The unbelievers say, “Do not listen to this Quran, but talk at random in the middle of its reading, that you may gain the upper hand.
But We will certainly give the unbelievers a taste of a severe penalty, and We will charge them for the worst of their deeds
Such is the punishment for the enemies of God. In the fire will be their eternal home, repayment because they used to reject Our signs
And the unbelievers will say, “Our Lord, show us those among the jinn and humans who misled us. We will crush them beneath our feet, so that they become the lowest.
In the case of those who say, “Our Lord is God,” and who also stand straight and steadfast, the angels descend on them, “Fear not, nor grieve, but receive the hope of the garden that you were promised
“We are your protectors in this life and in the hereafter. Therein you will have all that your soul desires. Therein you will have all that you ask for
“A hospitable gift from One Oft-Forgiving, Mercifully Redeeming.
Who is better in speech than one who calls people to God, works righteousness, and says, “I am of those who bow in Al-Islam”
And not equal are benefit and harm. Repel wrong with what is better. Then the two who hated each other will become close friends
And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint, none but those of the greatest good fortune
And if a harmful suggestion is made to you by Satan, seek refuge with God. He is the One Who hears and knows all things
Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not adore the sun and the moon, but adore God, Who created them, if it is Him you wish to worship
The unbelievers are arrogant, but in the presence of your Lord are those who praise Him by night and by day, and they never cease
And among His signs is this, you see the earth barren and desolate, but when We send down rain to it, it is stirred to life and yields increase. Truly, He Who gives life to the earth can surely give life to people who are dead, for He has power over all things
Those who corrupt the truth in Our verses are not hidden from Us. Which is better, he who is cast into the fire or he who passes by safely, on the Day of Accountability? Do what you will, indeed He sees all that you do
They are those who reject the message when it comes to them. But indeed it is a book of exalted power
No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it. It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of All Praise
Nothing is said to you that was not said to the messengers before you. That your Lord has at His command all forgiveness as well as a most terrible penalty
Had We sent this as a Quran in a language other than Arabic, they would have said, “Why are its verses not explained in detail? What, the message not in Arabic and the messenger an Arab?” Say, “It is a guide and a healing to those who believe, and for those who do not believe, there is deafness in their ears, and there is blindness in their eyes. They are being called from a place far away.
We certainly gave Moses the Book, but disputes arose concerning it. Had it not been for a word that went forth before from your Lord, their differences would have been settled between them, but they remained in disquieting doubt
Whoever works righteousness, benefits their own soul, whoever does wrong, it is against their own soul, nor is your Lord ever unjust to His servants. 46 (End of Part 24
To Him is referred the knowledge of the Hour. No date-fruit comes out of its sheath, nor does a female conceive or deliver on the day that God will ask them, “Where are the partners you associated with Me?” They will say, “We assure you, not one of us can bear witness.
The deities they used to invoke will leave them, but they will see that they have no way to escape
Human beings do not tire of asking for good, but if harm touches them, they give up all hope, lost in despair
When we give him a taste of some mercy from Ourselves, after some adversity has touched him, he is sure to say, “This is due to me. I do not think the Hour will be established, but if I am brought back to my Lord, I have enough good stored in His sight.” But We will show the unbelievers the truth of all that they did, and We will give them the taste of a severe penalty
When We bestow favor on the human being, he turns away and distances himself, and when harm seizes him, he comes full of prolonged prayer
Say, “Do you see that it is truly from God, and yet you still reject it? Who is more astray than one who is in opposition, and far from the purpose?
Soon We will show them our signs in all regions of the farthest horizons, and in their own selves, until it becomes clear to them that this is the truth. Is it not enough that your Lord witnesses all things
Ah indeed, they are in doubt concerning the meeting with their Lord. Ah indeed, it is He Who encompasses all things
