55:1 Al Rahman.
55:2 Who taught man the Quran, and by its instrumentality has He imparted to him knowledge and wisdom.
55:3 He created man and brought him into being.
55:4 And He taught him the expression of his thoughts in words and intellectual acquaintance with, and perception of, fact and truth and good versus evil.
55:5 The courses of the sun and the moon were determined according to precise computation,
55:6 And the stars and all that is in the heaven and the trees and all that is on earth bow to Him in adoration and prostrate their reason to Divine Omnipotence.
55:7 And the heaven did He raise aloft and construct as a building of imposing elevation, and He set the balance of reason, justice and vindication
55:8 So that you do not go beyond the limits prescribed whether in balancing probabilities to determine the truth or in balancing scales, nor go beyond all prudence and discretion.
55:9 But counterpoise and hold in equipoise all matters, concerns and affairs and that which exists individually, in fact or in idea, and that which is or may be in anyway an object of perception, knowledge, or thought, and do not de induced to act dishonestly with the balance, thus remains everything in the course and order wherein it was set at the creation.
55:10 And the earth did He found on a secure basis for created beings, animate and inanimate, and furnish with all that ministers to man's comfort and induces appreciation.
55:11 Therein grow edible variegated and delicious fruits and date- palms with large bracts and sheathing leaves enveloping the inflorescence which later becomes the fruit as the dates will come to be,
55:12 And grain of varying fruit- plants and grasses, with its clothing of the rich green leaves and the fragrance of its blossom.
55:13 Therefore, which of your Creator's favours, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
55:14 He created man's material part from clay, the same material of which earthenware vessels are made of.
55:15 And He created the Jinn from a brilliant flame of fire.
55:16 Therefore, which of your Creator's blessing's, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
55:17 It is He, Who ordained the two major cardinal eastern points and the two major western cardinal points and the points in between, where the sun rises and sets in winter and summer respectively, passing through recurrent cycles of successive events.
55:18 Therefore, which of your Creator's favours, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
55:19 He sent the fresh water and the sea water and made them come into contact with each other.*
55:20 And He set up an immaterial and natural barrier between them so that none of them gains advantage on the kingdom of the other
55:21 Therefore, which of your Creator's blessings, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
55:22 And out of the waters come delightful gems of pearls and coral
55:23 Therefore, which of your Creator's favours, you people of mankind and the Finn, will deny?
55:24 To Him, the invisible acting force that produces the motion, belong the ships that are manned to sail the sea propelled by material fastened to the high masts and the stately ships, propelled by other means, imposing and majestic in size and proportions.
55:25 Therefore; which of your Creators favours, you people of mankind and the Finn, will deny?
55:26 All that is on earth and elsewhere the material and the immaterial, shall come to an end and go through the gates of death,
55:27 And there and then remains only the One Whose countenance reflects authority, grandeur, greatness and sovereignty and the reverence accorded to His Omnipotence.
55:28 Therefore, which of your Creator's blessings, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
55:29 All created beings, the spiritual, the animate and the inanimate in the heavens and on earth address to Him a humble prayer for mercy and blessings individually or in litanies, pray to Him with supplication in difficulty and in difficulties, or pray to Him for deliverance from what is burdensome, or beg Him for relief, aid, and assistance in adversity and in time of danger, or ask of Him forgiveness for iniquities, or to exalt the pious and debase the despot and oppressor. Each and every day countless and different prayers and petitions, some being a repetition, and others being born anew, are addressed to Him for different requests each according to his or her circumstances and needs.
55:30 Therefore, which of your Creator's favours, you people of mankind and the Jinn, will deny?
