George Sale rendition of Surah The Beneficent, The Mercy Giving, The Merciful(ar-Rahman)
---
55:1 The Merciful
55:2 hath taught his servant the Koran.
55:3 He created man:
55:4 He hath taught him distinct speech.
55:5 The sun and the moon run their courses according to a certain rule:
55:6 And the vegetables which creep on the ground, and the trees submit to his disposition.
55:7 He also raised the heaven; and He appointed the balance,
55:8 that ye should not transgress in respect to the balance:
55:9 Wherefore observe a just weight; and diminish not the balance.
55:10 And the earth hath He prepared for living creatures:
55:11 Therein are various fruits, and palm-trees bearing sheaths of flowers;
55:12 and grain having chaff, and leaves.
55:13 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:14 He created man of dried clay like an earthen vessel:
55:15 But He created the genii of fire clear from smoke.
55:16 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:17 He is the Lord of the east, and the Lord of the west.
55:18 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:19 He hath let loose the two seas, that they meet each another:
55:20 Between them is placed a bar which they cannot pass.
55:21 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:22 From them are taken forth unions and lesser pearls.
55:23 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:24 His also are the ships, carrying their sails aloft in the sea, like mountains.
55:25 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:26 Every creature which liveth on the earth is subject to decay:
55:27 But the glorious and honourable countenance of thy Lord shall remain for ever.
55:28 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:29 Unto him do all creatures which are in heaven and earth make petition: Every day is He employed in some new work.
55:30 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:31 We will surely attend to judge you, O men and genii, at the last day.
55:32 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:33 O ye collective body of genii and men, if ye be able to pass out of the confines of heaven and earth, pass forth: Ye shall not pass forth but by absolute power.
55:34 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:35 A flame of fire without smoke, and a smoke without flame shall be sent down upon you; and ye shall not be able to defend yourselves therefrom.
55:36 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:37 And when the heaven shall be rent in sunder, and shall become red as a rose, and shall melt like ointment:
55:38 -- Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny? --
55:39 On that day neither man nor genius shall be asked concerning his sin.
55:40 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:41 The wicked shall be known by their marks; and they shall be taken by the forelocks, and the feet, and shall be cast into hell.
55:42 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:43 This is hell, which the wicked deny as a falsehood:
55:44 They shall pass to and fro between the same and hot boiling water.
55:45 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:46 But for him who dreadeth the tribunal of his Lord, are prepared two gardens:
55:47 -- Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny? --
55:48 Planted with shady trees.
55:49 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:50 In each of them shall be two fountains flowing.
55:51 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:52 In each of them shall there be of every fruit two kinds.
55:53 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:54 They shall repose on couches, the linings whereof shall be of thick silk interwoven with gold: And the fruit of the two gardens shall be near at hand to gather.
55:55 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:56 Therein shall receive them beauteous damsels, refraining their eyes from beholding any besides their spouses: Whom no man shall have deflowered before them, neither any genius:
55:57 -- Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny? --
55:58 Having complexions like rubies and pearls.
55:59 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:60 Shall the reward of good works be any other than good?
55:61 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:62 And besides these there shall be two other gardens:
55:63 -- Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny? --
55:64 Of a dark green.
55:65 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:66 In each of them shall be two fountains pouring forth plenty of water.
55:67 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:68 In each of them shall be fruits, and palm-trees, and pomegranates.
55:69 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:70 Therein shall be agreeable and beauteous damsels:
55:71 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:72 Having fine black eyes; and kept in pavilions from public view:
55:73 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:74 Whom no man shall have deflowered, before their destined spouses, nor any genius.
55:75 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:76 Therein shall they delight themselves, lying on green cushions and beautiful carpets.
55:77 Which, therefore, of your Lord's benefits will ye ungratefully deny?
55:78 Blessed be the name of thy Lord, possessed of glory and honour!
