Praise is due only for Allah, Who created the skies and the earth and made the darkness and the light, (even) then those who do not believe equate others with their Fosterer.
He it is Who created you from clay then decreed a term and there is a term named with Him, (even) then you doubt.
And He is Allah in the skies and in the earth, He knows that which you hide and that which you manifest and He knows that which you earn.
And there did not come to them any sign from the signs of their Fosterer but they turned away from it.
Thus they denied the truth when it came to them, so the news of that which they mocked at, will come to them.
Did they not see, how many a generation We destroyed before them, whom We had established in the earth more firmly than We have established you, and on whom We had sent abundant rain (from) the sky and (thereby) made the rivers to flow beneath them? Then We destroyed them for their sins and We raised after them another generation. tion.
And had We sent down to you a writing on a page so that they could touch it with their hands (even then) those who did not believe would have said, “This is nothing but clear magic.”
And they say ask "why has not an angel been sent down to him?" And had We sent down an angel, then the matter would have been decided (and) after that they would not have been allowed time (to amend).
And had We made an angel (Our messenger), We would have made him a man (so that he could be seen and heard delivering the message) and (thus) We would have (further) confused them (in a matter) in which they are already confused.
And messengers before you were mocked at, so, that which they mocked at, surrounded those who mocked from among them.
Say, "Travel in the earth then see how the end of those who denied (the truth) was (brought about)."
Say, "Whose is (all) that is in the skies and the earth?" Say, "Allah's." He has prescribed mercy on Himself. He will definitely gather you on the day of resurrection, there is no doubt in it. Those who caused loss to themselves, they will not believe.
And His is that which dwells in the night and the day, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
Say, "Should I take (as) a guardian (someone) other than Allah, the Initiator of the creation of the skies and the earth, when He feeds(others) and is not fed (by others)?" Say, "I am commanded that I should be the first of those who submit, and you should not be of the polytheists."
Say, "I fear the punishment of the great day, if I disobey my Fosterer.
He from whom it is turned away on that day, (then Allah) has indeed shown (His) mercy to him, and that is a clear achievement."
And if Allah afflicts you with harm, then there is no one who can remove it but He, and if He gives you (something) good, then He has power over everything.
And He is Omnipotent (All Powerful) over His servants and He is the Wise, the Informed.
Say, "What thing is greater (as) witness?" Say, "Allah is Witness between me and you. And this Quran has been communicated to me, that with it, I should warn you and whomsoever it reaches. Do you really bear witness that there are other gods with Allah?" Say, "I do not bear witness." Say, "He is only One God, and I am free from that which you associate as partners (with Allah)."
Those to whom We have given the book, recognise him as they recognise their sons. Those who caused loss to themselves, they do not believe
And who is more unjust than he who fabricates a lie against Allah or denies His signs, the unjust will not be successful.
And one day We will gather them all together, then We will say to those who associated partners (with Us), "Where are those whom you claimed (that they were Our) partners?"
Then they will be tempted to do nothing but to say, "By Allah our Fosterer, we were not polytheists."
See how they will lie against themselves, and that which they had fabricated will go away from them.
And among them is he who seeks to hear you but We have put veils on their hearts lest they understand and in their ears is heaviness, and (even) if they see every sign they will not believe in it, to the point that, when they come to you they will dispute with you. Those who do not believe say, "These are nothing but stories of the ancient." it, to the point that, when they come to you they will dispute with you. Those who do not believe say, "These are nothing but stories of the ancient."
And they forbid (others) from it and (they themselves) go far away from it and they do not destroy anyone except themselves but they do not perceive.
And if you could only see them when they would be made to stand before the fire, then they would say, "We wish, we were sent back, (then) we will not deny the signs of our Fosterer and we will be of the believers."
No, that which they used to hide earlier will become manifest to them; and (even) if they are sent back they will return to that which they are forbidden and they are liars.
And they say, "There is nothing except our life of this world and we will not be raised (again to life)."
And if you could only see them when they would be made to stand before their Fosterer, He will say, "Is this not real?" They will say, "Why not, by our Fosterer (it is real)." He will say, "Then taste the punishment because you used to reject (the truth)."
They indeed have lost who deny their meeting with Allah, until when the hour of doom comes on them suddenly, (then) they say, "Alas ! our regrets on our neglecting it." And they will bear their burdens on their backs. Is not what they bear, an evil?
And the life of this world is nothing but sport and pastime, whereas the home of the hereafter is better for those who guard (against evil). Do you not then understand?
We indeed know that what they say grieves you, they do not deny you, but the unjust knowingly deny the signs of Allah.
And messengers before you were indeed denied but they were patient on being denied and on being annoyed, until Our help came to them. And there is none to change the words of Allah; and the news of the messengers has come to you.
And if their keeping away (from your message) is a great (disappointment) for you, then if you can, seek a tunnel in the earth or a ladder (to ascend) into the sky, then come to them with a sign (miracle, still they will not believe). And had Allah willed, He would have gathered all of them on guidance, so do not be of those who are ignorant.
Only those will respond, who listen. And the dead, Allah will raise them up, then to Him they will be returned.
And they say, "Why has not a sign (miracle) been sent down on him from his Fosterer?" Say, "Allah certainly has the power to send down a sign but the majority of them does not know."
And there is not an animal in the earth nor a bird that flies on its two wings but they are communities (species) like that of yours, We have not neglected anything in the book, then they will be gathered towards their Fosterer.
And those who deny Our signs are deaf and dumb in darknesses. Whom Allah wills, He sends him astray, and whom He wills, He puts him on the straight path.
Say, "Have you considered, if the punishment of Allah comes upon you or the hour of doom comes upon you, (then) will you pray (for help) to someone other than Allah, if you are truthful?"
No ! you will pray to Him alone, then He will remove that for which you prayed to Him, if He wills, and you will forget those whom you used to associate as partners (with Allah).
And We had sent (messengers) to communities before you, then We afflicted them with distress and harm that they might humble themselves.
Then why did they not humble themselves, when distress from Us came to them? On the contrary, their hearts hardened and the devil made fair seeming to them, that which they did.
So when they forgot that with which they were admonished, We opened for them the gates of everything, until, while they were rejoicing in that which was given to them, We suddenly caught them, so then they were in utter despair.
So the root of the people who were unjust was cut off. And praise is due only for Allah, the Fosterer of the worlds.
Say, "Have you considered, if Allah were to take away your hearing and your sight and set a seal on your hearts, who is the god other than Allah who could bring them (back) to you?" See how We repeat the signs (for their understanding), even then they turn away.
Say, "Have you considered, if the punishment of Allah comes to you suddenly or openly, will anyone else be destroyed except the unjust people?"
And We do not send the messengers except as conveyers of good news and warners, so whoever believes and does righteous works, then there will neither be any fear on them nor will they grieve.
And those who deny Our signs, the punishment will afflict them because they used to transgress.
Say, "I do not say to you that with me are treasures of Allah nor that I know the unseen, and I do not say to you that I am an angel. I do not follow anything except that which is communicated to me." Say, "Are the blind and the seeing equal, then why do you not reflect?"
And warn through the (Quran) those who fear that they will be gathered towards their Fosterer, there will be no guardian for them besides Him and there will be no mediator, that they may guard (themselves against evil).
And do not drive away those who pray to their Fosterer in the morning and the evening intending (to seek) His Attention, you are not accountable for them in anything and they are not accountable for you in anything, so that (by) your driving them away you become (one) of the unjust.
And thus do We test some of them through others, so that they say, "Are these the persons upon whom Allah has showered His favour from among us?" Is not Allah the Best Knower of those who are grateful?
And when those who believe in Our signs come to you, then say (to them), "Peace be on you, your Fosterer has prescribed mercy on Himself, so if anyone of you did evil in ignorance then repented after that and amended, then He is certainly Protectively Forgiving, Merciful."
And thus do We explain the signs that the way of the criminals may become clear.
Say, "I am forbidden to serve, those whom you pray to, besides Allah," Say, "I will not follow your desires, (and in case I did) then indeed I would go astray and I would not be of those who are guided."
Say, "I am on a clear proof from my Fosterer, whereas you deny it. (The punishment) which you want to be hastened is not with me, the decision (to bring it about) is with none but Allah. He narrates the truth and He is the Best of judges."
Say, "Had (the punishment) which you want to be hastened been with me, then the affair between me and you would have been decided, and Allah knows best those who are unjust."
And with Him are the keys of the unseen, no one knows it but He. And He knows that which is in the land and the sea, and there does not fall a leaf but He knows it, nor a grain in the darkness of the earth, nor anything wet nor dry, but it is (recorded) in a clear record.
And He it is Who takes you back at night (by taking away your consciousness during your sleep) and He knows how you keep yourselves busy during the day, then He raises you up therein (day, by returning your consciousness) that you may fulfill the appointed term, then towards Him is your return, then He will inform you of that which you used to do.
And He is Omnipotent (All Powerful) over His servants. And protectors are sent over you by Him (and they protect you), until when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him back (cause him to die) and they do not neglect.
Then they are returned to Allah their Real Guardian. Beware ! His is the judgment, and He is the Swiftest in (settling) the account.
Say, "Who delivers you from the darkness (distresses) of the land and the sea (when) you pray to Him humbly and in secret, (saying): If He delivers us from this we will definitely be of those who are grateful?"
Say, "Allah delivers you from it and from every distress, then (even after that) you associate partners with Him."
Say, "He is able to let loose on you punishment from above you or from beneath your feet or put you under the banners of (rival) parties and (thereby) make some of you taste the violence of others (as in communal riots or wars)." See how We repeat the signs that they may understand.
And your people have denied it though it is the truth, say, "I am not a trustee over you."
For every news there is a (fixed) place/time, and you will come to know.
And when you see those who involve (themselves) in (vain talk) about Our signs then keep away from them until they involve (themselves) in some other issue, and if the devil causes you to forget, then do not sit with the unjust people after remembering it.
And those who guard (against evil) are not accountable for them in anything, but (this is only) a reminder that they may be careful.
And leave alone those who take their religion as sport and pastime and those whom the life of this world has deceived, but remind through it lest a soul be destroyed due to what it earned. There will be no guardian for it besides Allah and there will be no mediator and if it (tries to) compensate with every compensation it will not be accepted from it. Those are the persons who will be destroyed due to what they earned, there will be a drink of boiling water and a painful punishment for them because they did not believe.
Say, "Shall we pray to (something), besides Allah, that neither profits us nor harms us, and shall we turn back on our heels, after Allah has guided us, like him whom the devils have made to wander in the earth in a confused (state), while his companions call him towards guidance, "Come to us?" Say, "Allah's guidance is certainly the guidance, and we are commanded that we should submit to the Fosterer of the worlds,
and to establish worship (salat) and to fear Him; and He it is to Whom you will be gathered."
And He it is Who created the skies and the earth in reality. And the day He says, "Be," so it is. His word is the truth and His will be the authority the day it will be blown into the trumpet (or structure of the universe) . Knower of the unseen and the seen and He is the Wise, the Informed.
And when Ibrahim said to his father Azar, "Do you take idols as gods? I certainly see you and your people in clear error."
And thus We showed to Ibrahim, the kingdom of the skies and the earth that he might be of those who have certainty.
So when the night covered him he saw a planet*. He said, "This is my Fosterer," but when it set, he said, "I do not love those who set." * Probably Venus
Then when he saw the moon rising, he said, "This is my Fosterer," then when it set, he said, "If my Fosterer does not guide me I will definitely be among the people who are astray."
Then when he saw the sun rising, he said, "This is my Fosterer, this is the greatest (of all I could see)," then when it set, he said, "O my people ! I am free from that which you associate as partners (with Allah).
I turn my attention towards Him Who initiated the creation of the skies and the earth, being upright, and I am not of the polytheists."
And (when) his people argued with him, he said, "Do you argue with me about Allah Who has guided me, and I do not fear that which you associate as partners with Him, unless my Fosterer wills something. My Fosterer's knowledge extends over everything, will you not then be mindful?
And how should I fear that which you associate as partners (with Allah) when you do not fear to associate partners with Allah for which He has not sent down any authority on you, so which of the two parties has more right for security, if you know?
Those who believe and do not cover their belief with injustice, those are the persons for whom there is security and they are (rightly) guided."
And that was Our argument which We gave to Ibrahim against his people, We elevate the grades of whom We will. Your Fosterer is certainly Wise, Knowing.
And We granted him Ishaq and Yaqub, each did We guide, and earlier We had guided Nuh and from his descendants Dawood and Sulaiman and Iyub and Yusuf and Musa and Harun and thus do We reward those who do good,
and Zakariyya and Yahya and Isa and Ilyas, each one was of the righteous,
and Ismael and Elisha and Yunus and Lut and each one (of them) We preferred over (all others in) the worlds,
and from among their forefathers and their descendants and their brothers, and We chose them and We guided them to the straight path.
That's the guidance of Allah, He guides thereby whom He wills of His servants, and if they associate partners (with Allah), all that they used to do would become fruitless for them.
Those were the persons to whom We gave the book (law) and the judgment and the prophet hood; but if these do not believe in it, then We have entrusted with it, a people who will not be infidels to it.
Those were the persons whom Allah guided, therefore follow (religion) according to their guidance. Say, "I do not ask you for any reward for it; it is nothing but a reminder for the worlds."
And they did not estimate Allah with the estimation due to Him when they said, "Allah did not send down anything on man." Say, "Who (then) sent down the book with which Musa had come, (in which there was) light and guidance for mankind, of which you have made (written) pages, (part of) which you manifest while you hide much, and (through which) you were taught that which you did not know, you and your forefathers?" Say, "Allah," then leave them sporting in their involvement (of vain talk).
And this book (Quran too), We have sent down, (it is ) blessed, confirming those (Divine books) which were before it, that you may warn the mother of cities(Mecca) and those around it; and those who believe in the hereafter believe in it and they are guardians of their worship (salat).
And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or says, "Communication has come to me," when he has not been communicated with anything, and he who says, "I can (also) bring down the like of that which Allah has sent down." Could you but see when the unjust are engulfed in (the sufferings of) death and the angels stretch their hands (saying), "Bring out your souls. (This) day you will be rewarded with a shameful punishment because you used to speak about Allah (something) other than the truth, and you used to consider yourselves great with regard to (the acceptance) of His signs." about Allah (something) other than the truth, and you used to consider yourselves great with regard to (the acceptance) of His signs."
And now you have come to Us alone as We had created you the first time, and you have left behind your backs (all) that We bestowed upon you, and We do not see with you your mediators (about) whom you claimed that they would be partners in your (affairs), (all the ties) between you have been cut off and that which you used to claim (as dependable) has gone away from you.
(It is) certainly Allah Who splits the grain and the date-stone (seed). He brings out the living from the dead and He brings out the dead from the living. That is Allah, then how are you turned away (from the truth)?
Splitter of the day break, and He has made the night for rest and the sun and the moon for keeping an account (of time). That is the programme of the Mighty, the Knowing.
And He it is Who made for you the stars that you may guide yourselves by (using) them in the darknesses of the land and the sea. We have detailed the signs for a people who have knowledge.
And He it is Who has produced you from a single soul, then (appointed for you) a place/time for staying (life) and a place/time for departure (death). We have detailed the signs for a people who have understanding.
And He it is Who sends down water from the sky, then We bring out through it vegetation of every kind, then We bring out from it green (crop) from which We bring out grain piled up; and of the date palms, of the sheaths of it, come forth clusters of dates within reach; and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, similar and dissimilar. Look at its fruit when they bear fruit and its ripening. In these there are certainly signs for a people who believe.
And they make the jinn partners of Allah, whereas He created them, and they falsely attribute to Him sons and daughters without (having any) knowledge, glory be to Him and Highly Exalted is He above what they describe (about Him). (having any) knowledge, glory be to Him and Highly Exalted is He above what they describe (about Him).
Originator of the skies and the earth. How can He have a son when He has no consort? And He created everything and He is the Knower of everything.
That is Allah your Fosterer, there is no god except Him, Creator of everything, so serve Him, and He is the Trustee over everything.
Vision cannot comprehend Him, but He comprehends vision, and He is the Subtlety Informed.
Visual Proofs have come to you from your Fosterer, so whoever sees, then it is for (the good of) his own soul and whoever is blind then (the harm of it) is on him (alone), and I am not a protector over you.
And thus do We repeat the signs that they may say, "You have read," and that We may make it clear for a people who have knowledge.
Follow that which is communicated to you from your Fosterer, there is no god except Him and keep away from the polytheists.
And had Allah willed they would not have associated partners (with Him) and We have not made you a protector over them nor are you a trustee over them.
And do not abuse those whom they pray to, besides Allah, lest, exceeding the limits, they abuse (back) Allah unknowingly. Thus have We made fair seeming to every community, their deeds, then to their Fosterer will be their return and He will inform them of that which they used to do.
And they swear by Allah with their strong oaths, that if a sign comes to them they will definitely believe in it. Say, "Signs are only with Allah." And what will make you realize that (even) when the (sign) comes, they will not believe. elieve in it. Say, "Signs are only with Allah." And what will make you realize that (even) when the (sign) comes, they will not believe.
And We will turn their hearts and their eyes since they did not believe in it the first time, and We will leave them blindly wandering on in their rebellion.
And even if We had sent down angels to them, and the dead had spoken to them, and We had gathered for them every thing in front of them, (even then) they would not believe unless Allah wills it, and the majority of them is ignorant.
And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy, devils (from among the) human beings and the jinn, some (of them) communicating to others (through) decoratively deceptive language, and had your Fosterer willed they would not have done it, so leave alone, them and that which they forge,
so that the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter may incline to it, and that they may be pleased with it and that they may earn that which they are going to earn.
Shall I then seek (as) a judge (someone) other than Allah, when He it is Who has sent down the book (law) to you detailing (judgment)? And those to whom We gave the book know that it has been sent down from your Fosterer, (and it) contains the truth, so do not be of those who doubt (it).
And perfected is the word of your Fosterer in truth and justice. None can change His words and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
And if you obey most of those who are in the earth, they will send you astray from the way of Allah, they follow nothing but conjecture and they do nothing but lie.
Your Fosterer certainly knows best, him who goes astray from His way, and He knows best those who are guided.
So eat of that on which Allah's name has been mentioned if you are believers in His signs.
And why should you not eat of that on which Allah's name has been mentioned when He has explained to you what He has made unlawful for you, except that you become helpless by necessity to (eat) it? And certainly there are many who, without having (any) knowledge, lead (people) astray (only on the basis) of their desires, and your Fosterer certainly knows best those who exceed the limits.
And forsake sin (whether) open or secret, those who earn sin will certainly be rewarded for that which they used to earn.
And do not eat from that on which Allah's name has not been mentioned and that is certainly transgression. And the devils certainly communicate to their friends that they should dispute with you, and if you obey them then you will certainly become polytheists.
Is he who was dead, then We gave him life and made for him a light by which he walks among people, like him whose likeness is (like one) in darknesses from where there is no (way of) coming out? Thus, that which the infidels do, is made fair seeming to them.
And thus We have made in every city, (its) great ones its criminals that they may plan therein, and they do not plan but against their own souls but they do not perceive.
And when there comes to them a sign, they say, "We will never believe unless we are given the like of that which was given to the messengers of Allah (earlier). Allah knows best where He should place His message. Humiliation from Allah and severe punishment will befall those who are criminals, for that which they used to plan.
So, (for) whomsoever Allah intends that He should guide him, He opens his bosom for Islam, and (for) whomsoever He intends that He should leave him straying, He makes his bosom close and narrow as if he were ascending in the sky (when one gets suffocated due to lack of oxygen). Thus Allah lays uncleanliness on those who do not believe.
And this is the straight path of your Fosterer. We have detailed the signs for a people who are mindful.
For them there will be a home of peace with their Fosterer and He will be their Guardian because of that which they used to do.
And one day He will gather them all together, "O assembly of jinn ! you indeed sought many of the human beings." And their friends from among the human beings will say, "Our Fosterer ! some of us profited through others and we have reached our term which You termed for us." He will say, "The fire is your home, therein you will stay," except as Allah wills, your Fosterer is certainly Wise, Knowing.
And thus We make some of the unjust turn to others because of that which they used to earn.
"O assembly of jinn and human beings ! did there not come to you messengers from among you, narrating to you My signs and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours?" They will say, "We bear witness against ourselves." And the life of this world deceived them and they will bear witness against themselves that they used to be infidels.
That is because your Fosterer does not destroy (any) city unjustly while its people are unaware (of the message).
And for everyone are grades in accordance with that which they do and your Fosterer is not unaware of what they do.
And your Fosterer is Independent, Possessor of mercy, if He wills He can remove you and appoint whom He wills as successors after you, as He produced you from the descendants of other people.
That which you are promised will certainly come to pass and you cannot defeat (it).
Say, "O my people ! work on whatever lines you choose to, I too am working, but you will come to know for whom (of us) will the home (of the hereafter) be the (good) end, the unjust will certainly not be successful.
And they set aside a portion for Allah from that which He has produced of tilth (crop) and cattle and say, "This is for Allah," with their assertion. "And this is for our partners." But that which is for their partners does not reach Allah and that which is for Allah reaches their partners. Evil is ( the way in ) which they judge.
And thus their partners have made fair seeming to many of the polytheists the killing of their children, that they may destroy them and that they may cause confusion for them (in) their religion, and had Allah willed they would not have done it. So leave alone, them and that which they forge.
And they say, "These are the cattle and tilth forbidden, none shall eat them except whom we will." Thus they assert. And (there are) cattle whose backs are made unlawful and cattle over which they do not mention the name of Allah, forging (a lie) against Him. He will requite them because of that which they used to forge.
And they say, "That which is in the wombs of these cattle is exclusively for our males and it is unlawful for our wives, but if it is born dead, then they are partners in it. He will reward them for their description, He is certainly Wise, Knowing.
They who have killed their children foolishly without knowledge are at a loss and (those who ) have made unlawful that which Allah has provided for them, forging (a lie) against Allah, they have gone astray and they are not guided.
And He it is Who produced gardens raised on structures of pillars (like vine yards) and not raised, and the date palms and the vegetation differing in the food (prepared from) them and the olive and the pomegranates similar and dissimilar. Eat of its fruit when it bears fruit and give the (charity) due thereof on the day of its harvest and do not be extravagant, He certainly does not like the extravagant. olive and the pomegranates similar and dissimilar. Eat of its fruit when it bears fruit and give the (charity) due thereof on the day of its harvest and do not be extravagant, He certainly does not like the extravagant.
And of the cattle some are for carrying burden and some for slaughter (food). Eat of that which Allah has provided for you and do not follow the footsteps of the devil, he is certainly your open enemy.
Eight pairs, two of sheep and two of goats, say, "Has He made unlawful the two males or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Inform me with knowledge if you are truthful."
And two of camels and two of cows, say, "Has He made unlawful the two males or the two females or that which the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when Allah directed you with this?" So who is more unjust than him who forges a lie against Allah to mislead human beings without knowledge? Allah certainly does not guide the unjust people."
Say, "I do not find in that which is communicated to me, anything made unlawful for an eater to eat except that it be what has died of itself, or flowing blood, or flesh of swine, for that is certainly unclean; or exceeding the limits (by) invoking on the (food, the name of someone) other than Allah; but whoever is helplessly necessitated (to eat), neither desiring nor exceeding the limits, then your Fosterer is certainly Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
And on those who were Jews We had made unlawful every animal having claws, and of oxen and sheep We had made unlawful to them the fat of both, except that which adhered to their backs or the intestines or that mixed with the bone. We rewarded them with that because of their rebellion and We are certainly the Truthful.
So if they deny you, then say, "Your Fosterer is the Possessor of omnipresent mercy, but His punishment will not be turned away from people who are criminals."
Those who associate partners (with Allah) will say, "Had Allah willed we would not have associated partners (with Allah) nor our forefathers nor we would have made anything unlawful (by ourselves)." Thus did those before them deny, till they tasted Our punishment. Say, "Do you have any knowledge, then bring it out for us, you follow nothing but conjecture and you do nothing but lie."
Say, "Then Allah's is the argument (that makes one) reach (the final conclusion); so had He willed He would have guided all of you."
Say, "Come, bring your witnesses who should bear witness that Allah has made this unlawful." But if they bear witness, you do not bear witness with them, and do not follow the desires of those who deny Our signs and those who do not believe in the hereafter and make (others) equal to their Fosterer.
Say, "Come I will read to you that which your Fosterer has made unlawful for you: (It is unlawful) that you should associate any partner with Him. And (you) should be good to parents and you should not kill your children because of (the fear of) poverty, We provide for you and for them too, and (you) should not go near indecencies (both) those of them which are open and those which are secret and (you) should not kill a soul (anyone, the killing of) whom Allah has made unlawful except in the cause of justice. That He directs you with, that you may understand.
And you should not go near the wealth of the orphan, except in (a manner) that is best (having good intention), till the (orphan) reaches his (age of) maturity, and you should give back full measure and weight, with justice. We do not task a soul except to its capacity. And when you speak then (you) should be just, even if it be (against) a relative, and fulfill the agreement with Allah. That He directs you with, that you may be mindful.
And that, this is My path, straight, so follow it and do not follow other ways which will part you from His way. That He directs you with, that you may guard (against evil)."
Then We gave the book to Musa, complete for him who would do good, and an explanation of everything, and a guidance and mercy, that they may believe in the meeting with their Fosterer.
And this is a blessed book which We have sent down, so follow it and guard (against evil) that you may be dealt with mercifully,
lest you should say, that, "The book was sent down only to two parties before us and we were unaware of what they read,"
or you should say, "Had the book been sent down to us we would have been better guided than them." So a clear proof has come to you from your Fosterer, with guidance and mercy. Then who is more unjust than he who denies the signs of Allah and turns away from them. We will reward, those who turn away from Our signs, with an evil punishment because they used to turn away.
Do they wait for anything else than that the angels should come to them or your Fosterer should come or some signs of your Fosterer should come. The day some signs of your Fosterer come, the believing of a soul (anyone, after seeing the signs on that day) will not profit him who neither believed earlier nor earned good through his belief. Say, "(All of you) wait, we too are certainly waiting."
Those who divide their religion and become sects, you have nothing to do with them in anything, their affair is only with Allah, later He will inform them of what they used to do.
Whoever comes with (one) good then (the reward) for him is ten (times) like it and whoever comes with (one) evil, he will be rewarded only with the like of it and they will not be dealt with unjustly.
Say, "My Fosterer has certainly guided me to the straight path ( leading to ) the established religion (consisting of ) the religious dictates of Ibrahim the upright, and he was not of the polytheists."
Say, "My worship (salat) and my sacrifice and my life and my death are for Allah, the Fosterer of the worlds,
He has no partner and this I am commanded, and I am the first of those who submit (as Muslims)."
Say, "Shall I seek a fosterer other than Allah, when He is the Fosterer of everything? And every soul earns only against itself, and no bearer of a burden will bear the burden of another, then to your Fosterer will be your return, and He will inform you of that in which you differed."
And He it is Who made you successors of the earth, and raised the grades of some of you above others that He may test you through that which He has given you. Your Fosterer is certainly Quick in requiting while He is (also) Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.
