57:3  He is the first and the last, the apparent and the concealed, and He knows everything.
57:4  He is who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then He rose onto the throne, He knows what enters the earth and what emerges from it and what descends from the sky and what ascends through it, and He is with you wherever you are, and Allah sees what you do.

57:10  And what is the matter with you that you don´t spend in the way of Allah when to Allah belongs the inheritance of the heavens and the earth?

57:11  Who will lend to Allah an excellent loan so that He multiplies it for him and he has a generous reward?
57:12  On the day you see the believing men and women with their light racing before them and on their right - good news for you today: gardens through which rivers flow where they will remain, that is the ultimate success.
57:13  On the day the pretending men and women will say to those who believed: look at us so that we can borrow some of your light. They will be told: turn back to what you left behind and look for light. Then a wall will be stuck between them with a door which has mercy on the inside and outside of it is the punishment.
57:14  They will call them: were we not with you? They will say: sure, but you corrupted yourselves and waited and doubted, and hopes mislead you until Allah´s command came to pass, and passing provisions mislead you about Allah.
57:15  So today no compensation will be taken from you nor from those who rejected (the truth), your abode is the fire, it is your master, a bad destination.
57:16  Has not the time come for the believers that their hearts humble towards the remembrance of Allah and what He has revealed of the truth and that they should not be like those who were given the book before them, but time went too slowly for them and their hearts hardened, and many of them were sinful?
57:17  Know that Allah revives the earth after its death; We have already explained the signs to you so that you might understand.

57:19  And those who believe in Allah and His messengers, those are the truthful and the witnesses before their Lord, they will have their reward and their light; and those who reject (the truth) and deny Our signs, those are the inmates of hell-fire.
57:20  Know that the life of this world is only play and pastime and adornment and boasting amongst you and amassing of wealth and children - like the rain when those who reject (the truth) like its vegetation, then it dries out and you see it yellow, then it crumbles, and in the hereafter there is severe punishment and forgiveness and contentment from Allah, and the life of this world is only a passing provision.
57:21  Strive for the forgiveness of your Lord and a garden whose width is like the width of the heavens and the earth which has been prepared for those who believe in Allah and His messengers. That is the favour of Allah which He gives to whom He pleases, and Allah possesses immense favours.
57:22  No affliction strikes on earth nor within yourselves but it is in a record before We discharge it, for that is easy for Allah.
57:23  So that you don´t worry about what has passed you by nor rejoice in what you were given, and Allah does not love an arrogant show-off.
57:24  Those who are mean and command people to be mean, and whoever turns away, Allah is the rich and praiseworthy.
57:25  We sent Our messengers with clear proofs and sent the book with them and the balance so that mankind upholds justice, and We sent iron which contains severe harm and benefits for mankind and so that Allah knows who helps Him and His messengers in secret, for Allah is strong and mighty.
57:26  And We sent Nuh (Noah) and Ibrahim (Abraham) and placed the prophethood and the book amongst their descendants, yet amongst them are those who are guided, and many of them are sinful.
57:27  Then We let Our messengers follow into their footsteps and made ´Isa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), follow and gave him the Injil and placed in the hearts of those who followed him kindness and mercy, and monasticism they invented, We did not prescribe it for them except that they should seek the contentment of Allah, and they did not observe it properly, so We gave those who believed amongst them their reward, and many of them were sinful.
57:28  Oh you believers, beware of Allah and believe in His messenger, He will give you double measure of His mercy and give you a light by which you walk and forgive you, and Allah is forgiving and merciful.
57:29  Let the people of the Book know that they have no power whatsoever over the favours of Allah and that all favours are in Allah´s hand, He gives them to whom He pleases, and Allah possesses immense favours.
