55:1 IT IS the Merciful
55:2 who has taught the Koran.
55:3 He created man
55:4 and taught him articulate speech.
55:5 The sun and the moon pursue their ordered course.
55:6 The plants and the trees bow down in adoration.
55:7 The heaven He raised on high and set the Balance of all things,
55:8 that you might not transgress that Balance.
55:9 Give just weight and full measure, and do not cheat the Balance.
55:10 And the earth He laid for His creatures,
55:11 with all its fruits and blossom-bearing palm,
55:12 chaff-covered grain and scented herbs.
55:13 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you² deny?
55:14 He created man from potter‘s clay,
55:15 and the jinn from smokeless fire.
55:16 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:17 The Lord of the two easts³ is He, and the Lord of the two wests.
55:18 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:19 He has let loose the two seas:⁴ they meet one another.
55:20 Yet between them stands a barrier which they cannot overrun.
55:21 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:22 Pearls and corals come out from both.
55:23 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:24 His are the ships that sail like mountains upon the ocean.
55:25 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:26 All that live on earth are doomed to die.
55:27 But the face of your Lord will abide for ever, in all its majesty and glory.
55:28 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:29 All who dwell in heaven and earth entreat Him. Each day some mighty task engages Him.

55:31 Jinn and mankind, We shall surely find the time to judge you.
55:32 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:33 You race of jinn and mankind, if you have power to penetrate the confines of heaven and earth, then penetrate them. But this you shall not do except with Our own authority.
55:34 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:35 Flames of fire shall be lashed at you, and molten brass. There shall be none to help you.
55:36 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:37 When the sky splits asunder, and reddens like a rose or stained leather
55:38 (so which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?),
55:39 on that day neither man nor jinnee will be asked about his sins.
55:40 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:41 The transgressors will be known by their looks; they shall be seized by their forelocks and their feet.

55:43 That is the Hell the transgressors deny.
55:44 They shall wander between fire and water fiercely seething.
55:45 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:46 But for those that fear the majesty of their Lord there are two Gardens
55:47 (so which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?),
55:48 planted with shady trees.
55:49 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:50 Each is watered by a flowing spring.
55:51 Which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:52 Each bears every kind of fruit in pairs.
55:53 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:54 They shall recline on couches lined with rich brocade, and within reach will hang the fruits of both Gardens.
55:55 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?

55:63 (so which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?),
55:64 of darkest green.
55:65 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:66 A gushing fountain shall flow in each.

55:71 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:72 Dark-eyed virgins, sheltered in their tents
55:73 (so which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?),
55:74 whom neither man nor jinnee will have touched before.
55:75 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:76 They shall recline on green cushions and fine carpets.
55:77 So which of your Lord‘s blessings would you deny?
55:78 Blessed be the name of your Lord, the Lord of Majesty and Glory!
