The praise is for Allah, Who has created the heavens and the earth, and made the darkness and the light; yet those who disbelieve in their Lord, they hold others as equal.
It is He, Who has created you from clay, then decreed a term (you to die) and a determined term (you to be resurrected) with Him, yet you doubt
And it is the same Allah in the heavens and in the earth, He knows your secret and your open deeds, and He knows what you earn.
Yet never comes to them a sign from Verses of their Lord, but they are turning away from it.
Indeed, they have rejected the truth (the Qur’an and Muhammad) when it came to them. But soon news will come to them of that (the punishment) they used to mock at it.
Have they not seen how many generations We have destroyed before them? We had established them (more powerful) on the earth such as We have not established for you. And We sent rain on them abundantly, and made the rivers flow under them. Then We destroyed them for their sins, and We raised after them other generations.
And if We had sent down to you (O Muhammad) a book written on paper and they could have touched it with their hands, those who disbelieve still would have said: “This is not but obvious magic!”
And they say: “Why has not an angel been sent down to him?” If We had sent down an angel, the matter would have been decided then, and no respite would have been granted to them
and had We appointed him an angel, We would have made him in a human form, and We would have certainly caused confusion to them in what they are already confused.
Indeed Messengers were mocked before you (O Muhammad), but those who ridiculed were surrounded by them the very thing what they were mocking at it.
Say (O Muhammad): “Travel in the land and see what the end of the rejecters was.”
Say (O Muhammad): “To whom belongs what is in the heavens and the earth?” Say: “To Allah.” He has prescribed the Mercy for Himself. He will gather you together on the Day of Resurrection, there is no doubt in it. Those who have ruined themselves, they will not believe.
And to Him belongs all that exist in the night and the day, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower
Say (O Muhammad): “Shall I take a guardian other than Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? It is He who feeds and He is not fed.” Say: “Surely, I am commanded that I should be first who submit to Allah and should not be among the polytheists.
Say: “I surely fear, if I disobey my Lord, the punishment of a mighty Day.”
Whoever is averted from it (punishment) that Day, surely (Allah) has Mercy on him. That is the obvious success.
And if Allah touches you with affliction, then none can relieve it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He has power over every thing.
And He is Omnipotent (Supreme Authority) over His servants, and He is the All-Wise, Well-Aware of everything.
Say (O Muhammad): “What thing is greatest in evidence?” Say: “Allah is a witness between me and between you; and this Qur’an is revealed to me so that I may warn you with it and whoever it may reach. Do you surely bear witness that besides Allah there are others worthy of worship?” Say: “I don’t bear such a witness!” Say: “Allah is only the one worthy of worship. Indeed I am innocent of what you associate (with Allah).”
Those whom We have given the Scripture recognize him (Muhammad) as they recognize their sons. But those who lost their own selves will not believe.
And who is greater wrongdoer than he who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His Verses? Surely, the wrongdoers will not attain success.
On the Day when We shall gather them all together, We shall say to those who associated others (with Allah): “Where are your associates (false deities) to whom you used to assert?”
They will not have arguments but will say: “By Allah, our Lord, we were not polytheists.”
Look! How they lie against themselves! The lie will leave them what they invented.
Among them there are those who (pretend that they) listen to you; but We have cast veils over their hearts, and deafness in their ears, so they can not understand it. Even if they see every sign, they will not believe in it. So much so that when they come to you, they argue with you. The disbelievers say: “This is not but tales of the ancients.”
And they forbid others from him (Muhammad) and they themselves keep away from him. They destroy not but their own selves and they don’t perceive it.
If you could see when they will be held over the fire! They will say: “We wish we were sent back (to the world), then we would not deny the Verse of our Lord, and we would be among the believers!”
But it has become clear to them what they used to conceal before. Even if they were sent back (to the world), they would have reverted to what they were forbidden. Indeed they are the liars.
And (today) they say: “There is no other life but our life of the world, and we will not be resurrected (on the Day of Resurrection).”
If you could see when they will be held to stand before their Lord! He will say: “Is this not the truth?” They will say: “Yes, our Lord!” He will say: “Then taste the punishment for what you used to disbelieve.”
Indeed they will suffer loss who denied meeting with Allah. When the Hour (doomsday) will come to them suddenly, they will say: “Alas for us over what we neglected in it.” They will carry the burden of their sins on their backs. Indeed evil is what they will bear!
The life of this world is nothing but a play and a pastime. Abode of the Hereafter is better for those who fear Allah. Will you not then understand?
Indeed We know that it grieves you (Muhammad) what they say: surely they don’t reject you, but the wrongdoers deny in the Verses (the Qur’an) of Allah.
Indeed, many Messengers were rejected before you (O Muhammad), but they endured with patience that they were rejected, and they were hurt; till Our help reached them, and there is none who can alter the words of Allah. Surely, there has come to you news of those Messengers.
If their dislike is hard on you, then see if you can seek a tunnel in the ground or a ladder to the sky, so that you can bring them a sign. (You know) if Allah willed, He could have gathered them all on the guidance. So don’t be like the ignorant.
It is only those who listen (to Muhammad), will respond. For the dead (disbelievers), Allah will raise them (on the Day of Resurrection), and then to Him they will be returned (for their recompense).
And they say: “Why not a sign has been sent down to him from his Lord?” Say: “Indeed Allah has power to send down a sign, but most of them don’t know (the wisdom behind it).”
There is no animal on earth and no bird that flies with its 2 wings, but are communities like you (who see the signs of Allah). We have not neglected anything in the book. Then to their Lord they shall be gathered.
Those who reject Our Verses are deaf and dumb in the darkness. Whom Allah wills lets go astray and whom He wills guides on the Right Way.
Say (O Muhammad): “What do you think if the punishment of Allah comes to you, or the last Hour comes to you, do you call anyone other than Allah? Answer if you are truthful!”
But to Him alone you will call, and He will remove the distress for which you have called upon Him if He wills. You will forget whoever you have associated (with Allah)!
Surely, We did send Messengers to nations before you (O Muhammad). We seized them with misfortune and hardship, so that they might humble themselves.
Why did they not humble themselves when Our punishment came to them? Because their hearts became hardened, and Satan made seem fair to them what they used to do.
When they forgot the warning what they had been reminded therewith, We opened to them the gates of every pleasant thing, until when they were rejoicing in what they were granted, We seized them suddenly, and then they were plunged into despair.
So last remnant of the people who did wrong were cut off. All praises are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.
Say (to the disbelievers): “What do you think if Allah takes away your hearing and your sight, and seals up your hearts; who is there worthy of worship other than Allah who could restore them to you?” See how We present the Verses in various ways, yet they turn away.
Say: “What do you think if the punishment of Allah comes to you suddenly or openly, will anyone be destroyed except the wrongdoers?”
And We have not sent the Messengers but bearers of glad tidings and warners. So those who believe and mend their life, then no fear shall be upon them, nor shall they grieve.
But those who reject Our Verses, the punishment will touch them for what they used to transgress.
Say (O Muhammad): “I don’t say to you that I have the treasures of Allah, nor that I know the unseen; nor I say to you that I am an angel. I follow not but what is revealed to me.” Say: “Is it equal the blind and the seeing? Why do you not think?”
And (O Muhammad) warn with it (the Qur’an) those who fear that they will be gathered before their Lord, when there will be neither a protector nor an intercessor for them besides Him; so that they may fear Allah and keep their duty to Him.
And don’t turn away those who invoke their Lord in the morning and the evening seeking His Favor. You are not accountable for their deeds and they are not accountable for yours. So if you turn them away, you shall be of the wrongdoers.
Thus We have tested some of them (poor believers) with others (chiefs of Quraish) so that they might say: “Are these (poor) people whom Allah has favored from amongst us?” Does not Allah know better the thankful ones?
When those who believe in Our revelations come to you, say: “Peace be upon you.” Your Lord has made the Mercy incumbent upon Himself. If any one of you does evil in ignorance, then repents after that, and mends ways; then surely, He is Forgiving, Merciful.
And thus We explain in detail the Verses, so that way of the sinners becomes clear
Say (O Muhammad): “I am forbidden that I worship those whom you call upon besides Allah.” Say: “I will not follow your desires, then I will go astray, and I will not be of the guided.”
Say (O Muhammad): “I am on a clear proof from my Lord, but you have rejected it. I don’t have (the punishment) which you are demanding hastily. The decision is not but for Allah: He declares the truth, and He is the best of the judges.”
Say: “If I had that power which you are asking for impatiently (the punishment), the matter would have been settled at once between me and you, but Allah knows the best the wrongdoers
And He has the keys of the unseen, none knows them but He. And He knows what is in the earth and the sea. There is not a leaf that falls but He knows it. There is neither a grain in darkness of the earth nor anything wet or dry, but is written in a clear book.
It is He, Who recalls your souls by night (during sleep), and knows what you have done during the day, then He raises you again in it (next day) so that the appointed term (your life) is completed. To Him will be your return, then He will inform you of what you used to do.”
He is the Omnipotent (Supreme Authority) above His servants, and He sends over you guardians (angels), until when death approaches one of you. Our Messengers (angels) cause you to die (take soul), and they don’t neglect their duty.
Then they (souls) are returned to Allah, their Lord, and the Just. Surely, He is the judge and He is the Swiftest in taking accounts.
Say (O Muhammad): “Who saves you from the darkness of the land and the sea? When you call upon Him humbly and secretly (saying): ‘If He (Allah) saves us from this (danger), we shall be among the thankful.”’
Say (O Muhammad): “Allah saves you from this and from every distress, yet you associate partners with Allah.”
Say: “He has power to sends upon you punishment from above you or from under your feet, or covers you with mutual discord, and lets some of you taste violence of one another. See how We explain Verses in various ways, so that they may understand.
But your people have denied it (the Qur’an) and the truth.” Say: “I am not a supervisor over you
For every prophecy there is a fixed time and soon you will know it.”
And when you (Muhammad) see those who engage in (argument with) Our revelations, turn away from them until they engage in a talk other than that (topic). If Satan causes you to forget (the commandment), then after the remembrance, you don’t sit with the wrongdoers.
Those who fear Allah are not responsible from their (wrongdoers’) actions anything, but remind them so that they (wrongdoers) may fear Allah.
And leave alone those who take their religion as a play and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. But remind them with it (the Qur’an) lest their souls are caught for what they have earned. Neither will be for them besides Allah a protector nor an intercessor, and even if they offer ransom for every ransom, it will not be accepted from them. They are those who are caught for what they earned. For them will be a drink of boiling water and a painful punishment because they used to disbelieve.
Say (O Muhammad to the disbelievers): “Shall we invoke others besides Allah that can neither benefit us nor can harm us? Shall we turn on our heels after when Allah has guided us? Like those whom the Satan has misled in the earth confused, their companions call them to the guidance (saying): ‘Come to us.’” Say: “Surely, the Guidance of Allah is the only guidance, and we are commanded that we submit (become Muslims) to the Lord of the worlds;
to offer prayer, fear Allah, and it is He to Whom you shall be gathered.”
It is He who has created the heavens and the earth in truth and on the Day (of Resurrection) He will say: “Be!” and it shall become. His word is the truth. The dominion will be His on the Day when the trumpet will be blown. He knows all the invisible and the visible. He is the Wise, aware of everything.
And (remember) when Abraham said to his father Azar: “Do you take idols as deities? Surely, I see you and your people in clear error.”
Thus We showed Abraham kingdom of the heavens and the earth so that he becomes one of the firm believers.
When the night outspread over him, he saw a star. He said: “This is my Lord.” But when it set, he said: “I don’t love those who set.”
When he saw the moon rising, he said: “This is my Lord.” But when it set, he said: “If my Lord don’t guide me, surely I shall be among the people who go astray.”
When he saw the sun rising, he said: “This is my Lord. This is the largest.” But when it set, he said: “O my people! Surely I am free from what you associate (with Allah).
Surely, I have turned my face to Him who has created the heavens and the earth, and exclusively I am not of the polytheists.”
His people disputed with him. He said: “Do you dispute with me about Allah, whereas He has guided me? I don’t fear what you associate with Him except that whatever my Lord wills; my Lord comprehends every thing (in His) knowledge. Then don’t you remember?
Why should I fear what you associate with Allah, when you don’t fear what you associate with Allah, for which He has not sent down any authority to you? Which of the 2 parties has more right to security? (Tell me) if you know.
Those who believe and don’t confuse their belief with wrong-doings, for them there is the security and they are the guided.”
That was Our argument which We gave to Abraham against his people. We raise in ranks whom We will. Surely your Lord is All-Wise, All-Knower of everything.
We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob, We guided each of them, and before that, We guided Noah, and among his progeny David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron. Thus We reward the righteous people.
(Others include) Zachariah, John, Jesus, and Elias; all were of the righteous
and Ishmael, Elisha, Jonah, Lot, and all We favored over the world
and from their forefathers, their progeny, and their brethren. We chose them and guided them to the Right Way.
This is the guidance of Allah with it He guides whom He wills of His servants. If they had associated others with Allah, rendered vain from them what they used to do (deeds).
They were those whom We gave the book, sound judgment, and Prophethood. But if they disbelieve in it, then indeed We would entrust it to the people who are not disbelievers in it.
(O Muhammad) they are those whom Allah had guided. So you follow their guidance. Say: “I ask you no reward for it (delivery of the message). This is not but a reminder for the worlds.
They have not valued (the attributes of) Allah with a value due to Him when they said: “Allah did not send down to any human being any thing.” Ask (O Muhammad): “Who sent down the book (Torah) which Moses brought it, a light and guidance for mankind? You have put into sheets for people, you disclose some of it and you conceal most of it. Though you were taught (through the Qur’an) what neither you know nor your forefathers knew.” (If they don’t answer) say: “Allah (sent it).” Then leave them in their arguments they play.
And this (the Qur’an) is a blessed book which We have sent down confirming (the revelations) which came before it, so that you may warn people of Mother of Towns (Makkah) and those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter, will believe in it (the Qur’an), and they will guard over their prayers
Who is more unjust than the one who invents a lie against Allah, or says: “Revelation was sent down to me,” while no revelation has come to him? Or the one who says: “I will reveal like what Allah has revealed.” If you could see when the wrongdoers are in agonies of the death and the angels are stretching out their hands (saying): “Deliver your souls! This Day you shall be recompensed with the punishment of humiliation for what you used to utter against Allah other than the truth. You used to be arrogant concerning His Verses!
And surely you have come back to Us all alone as We created you the first time. You have left behind what We had bestowed on you. We don’t see with you your those intercessors whom you claimed that they share with Allah (as partners) in your matters. Indeed (bonds) have been severed between you and have forsaken you what you used to claim.”
Surely! It is Allah who causes to split the grain and the fruit-stone. He brings forth the living from the dead, and brings forth the dead from the living. Such is Allah, then how are you being misled (from truth)?
(He) is the Cleaver (chopper) of the daybreak. He has made the night for resting, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. Such are the arrangements of the All-Mighty, the All-Knower.
It is He Who has made for you the stars, so that you may guide yourselves by them in darkness of the land and the sea. Indeed We have made clear the revelations for people who know.
It is He Who has created you from a single person (Adam), so there is a time-limit (on the earth) and a resting place (in the Hereafter). Indeed, We have made clear the Verses for people who understand.
It is He Who sends down rain from the heaven, We bring thereby vegetation of every kind, We bring forth thereby green stalks, We bring forth from it thick-clustered grain and from date-palm and from its sprout clusters of dates hanging low, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates resembling (in kind), and yet different. Look at its fruit when it bears fruit, and its ripeness. Surely! In all these are signs for people who believe
Yet, they make the jinns associates with Allah, though He has created them, and they falsely attribute to Him as sons and daughters without knowledge. He is glorified and exalted (far above) from what they attribute.
He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How He can have a son when He did not have a mate? He has created every thing and He is the All-Knower of everything.
Such is Allah, your Lord! There is no one worthy of worship but He, the Creator of every thing. So worship Him (alone) and He is the Guardian over every thing.
No vision can grasp Him, but He grasps all visions. He is the Subtle, Well-Aware of everything.
Surely, proofs have come to you from your Lord. So those who see will do so for their own self, and those who are blind, will do so against themselves. I (Muhammad) am not over you a keeper.
Thus We explain the Verses in various ways, and they (the disbelievers) may say: “You have learned (from the Scriptures of the people and brought this Qur’an)” and that We may make it clear for the people who have knowledge.
Follow what is revealed to you (O Muhammad) from your Lord, there is no one worthy of worship but He and turn away from the polytheists.
If Allah willed, they would not have associated others with Him. He has not made you a watcher over them nor you are a guardian over them.
And don’t insult those who (disbelievers) invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah wrongfully without knowledge. Thus We have made their deeds seem fair to each nation. Then to their Lord is their return and then He shall inform them of what they used to do.
They swear by Allah their strongest oaths, that if a Verse came to them, they would surely believe in it. Say: “Only the Verses are with Allah.” What will make you realize that when those Verses come, they will still not believe?
And We shall turn their hearts and their eyes (away from guidance), as they did not believe in it for the first time, and We shall leave them in their tyranny to wander blindly.
Even if We had sent down the angels to them, the dead had spoken to them, and We had gathered before them every thing open (before their eyes), they would not have believed, unless that Allah willed, but most of them are ignorant.
And so We have made for every Prophet an enemy - devils of humans and jinns, inspiring some of them to others with adorned speech as a deception. If your Lord had willed, they would not have done it, so leave them alone with what they fabricate,
so that the hearts of those who don’t believe in the Hereafter may incline (to such deception), and they may be pleased with it; so that they may commit what they wish to commit (sins and evil deeds).
(Say O Muhammad): “Shall I seek a judge other than Allah who has sent down to you the book (The Qur’an) in details?” Those whom We gave (previously) the Scripture; they know that it is revealed from your Lord in truth. So you should not be of those who doubts.
The Word of your Lord has been perfected in truth and justice. No one can change His Words. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower.
If you obey most of those on the earth, they will mislead you from the Way of Allah. They don’t follow but guess, and they don’t but lie.
Surely, your Lord! It is He Who knows best who strays from His Way, and He knows best the rightly guided ones.
So eat of that meat on which the name of Allah has been pronounced (during slaughter) if you are believers in His revelations.
What happened to you that you don’t eat of that (meat) on which the name of Allah has been pronounced (during slaughter) when indeed He has explained to you what is forbidden to you, unless that you are constrained to it? Surely many lead people astray by their desires for lack of knowledge. Certainly your Lord knows best the transgressors.
Abandon (all kinds of) sin, open and secret. Surely, those who earn sin, they will be recompensed for what they have committed.
You don’t eat of that (meat) on which the name of Allah has not been pronounced (during slaughter), it is indeed a transgression. Indeed, the devils do inspire their friends (from mankind) so that they dispute with you, and if you obey them, then you would surely be polytheists.
Can he who was dead (by ignorance and disbelief), whom We gave life (by knowledge and belief), and whom We gave a light (belief) of likeness by it (can walk) among people, be like the one who is in the darkness (disbelief) from which can never come out? Thus it is made seem fair to the disbelievers what they used to do
and thus We have set up in every town leaders of its wicked ones to plot in it. But they don’t plot except against themselves though they don’t perceive.
When a sign (Verse of the Qur’an) comes to them, they say: “We shall not believe until we are given like what was given to the Messengers of Allah.” Allah knows best where to place His message. Humiliation from Allah and a severe punishment will soon overtake the criminals for what they used to plot.
Whomever Allah wills to guide, He opens heart to Islam, and whomever He wills to let go astray, He makes heart closed, constricted, as if the soul is climbing to the sky. Thus Allah sets the wrath over those who don’t believe,
whereas, this is the Right Way (Islam) of your Lord. Surely, We have detailed Our Verses for a people who take heed.
For them there will be home of peace (Paradise) with their Lord. And He will be their protector for what they used to do.
And on the Day when He will gather them all together (and say): “O you assembly of jinns! Surely, you have misled a lot from humans.” Their friends among the humans (will say): “Our Lord! Some of us benefited from some, and now we have reached our term which You had appointed for us.” He will say: “The fire is your residing place to reside in it forever, except what Allah wills.” Surely your Lord is All-Wise, the All-knower of everything.
And thus We make some of the wrongdoers friends of some for what they used to earn (in the world)
(Allah will ask): “O assembly of jinns and mankind! Did not there come to you Messengers from among you, reciting to you My Verses and warning you of your meeting of this Day?” They will say: “We bear witness against ourselves.” It was this worldly life that deceived them. They will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
This is because your Lord would not destroy the towns unjustly while their people were unaware.
For every one there will be ranks for what they did. Your Lord is not unaware of what they do.
And your Lord is Self-Sufficient, full of Mercy. If He wills, He can destroy you away, and replace you with others as He wills, just as He raised you from the offspring of other people.
Surely, what you are promised is bound to pass and you can not escape (the punishment of Allah)
Say (O Muhammad): “O people! Work in your place, surely, I too am at work (in my way), soon you will know who will be happy for the reward of the house (Paradise). Surely, the wrongdoers will not succeed.”
And they assign to Allah a share of the tilth (produce) and the cattle which He has created, and they say: “This is for Allah,” so they presume, and “this is for our partners (of Allah).” But what is for their partners (of Allah) does not reach Allah, while what is for Allah reaches to their partners (of Allah)! Evil is what they judge!
Likewise to many of the polytheists, killing of their children for their partners (of Allah) have made seem fair so that they ruin them and so that they confuse them in their religion. If Allah had willed, they would not have done it. So leave them alone with what they fabricate.
They say that these (certain types of) cattle and crops are forbidden, none should eat them except those whom we allow. They presume (certain types of) cattle are forbidden to use their backs (for loads or any work), and they did not pronounce the name of Allah on cattle (during slaughter); made false fabrication against Him (Allah). He will recompense them for what they used to fabricate.
They say: “What is in bellies of these cattle (milk or fetus) is exclusively for our males, and forbidden to our females, but if it is born dead, then they all have shares in it.” He will punish them for their attribution (superstitions). Surely, He is All-Wise, All-knower of everything.
Indeed those who have killed their children foolishly without knowledge suffered loss, and they have made unlawful what sustenance Allah has provided them, inventing a lie against Allah. Surely they have gone astray and they are not guided ones.
And it is He who has created gardens trellised and not trellised, the date-palms, the crops of different tastes, the olives, and pomegranates, are similar (in kind) but not similar (in taste). Eat of its fruit when ripen, but pay its due (obligatory charity) on the day of its harvest. Don’t exceed the limits. Surely, He does not like those who exceed limits.
And of the cattle some are for loads (like camel) and some are to be laid on ground (for slaughter like sheep, goats etc). Eat that what Allah has provided you, and you don’t follow footsteps of Satan. Surely he is to you open enemy.
8 in pairs: of the sheep 2 (male and female), and of the goats 2 (male and female). Ask: “Has He forbidden you the 2 males or the 2 females, or contain (fetuses) which the wombs of the 2 females (enclose)? Tell me with knowledge, if you are truthful.”
Of the camels 2 (male and female), and of the cows 2 (male and female). Ask: “Has He forbidden you the 2 males or the 2 females or contain fetuses which the wombs of the 2 females (enclose)? Or were you present when Allah ordered you of this? Then who is more unjust than one who fabricates a lie against Allah so as to mislead the people without knowledge? Surely, Allah does not guide the wrongdoers.”
Say (O Muhammad): “I don’t find in what has been revealed to me anything prohibited to be eaten by one who intends to eat it, except that it be dead animal or blood poured out, or flesh of pork: for that is surely unclean or impious (unlawful meat slaughtered) by invoking name of other than Allah. But whoever is forced (by necessity) neither craving nor transgressing, then certainly your Lord is Forgiving, Merciful.”
And to those who are Jews, We forbade every animal with claws (undivided hoof), and We prohibited them the fat of the cows and the sheep, except what is carried to their backs or intestines, or what is mixed with bone. Thus We punished them for their rebellion. Surely, We are Truthful.
If they deny you (Muhammad) say: “Your Lord is owner of vast Mercy, but His punishment can not be averted from the guilty people.”
Those who made partners with Allah will say: “If Allah had willed, we would have made neither partner with Him, nor would our forefathers, nor we would have prohibited anything (against Him).” Likewise those who were before them rejected until they tasted Our punishment. Say: “Is there any knowledge (evidence) with you which you can provide to us? You follow nothing but guess and you are not but guessing.”
Say: “Allah has conclusive argument, and had He willed, He would have guided you all.”
Say: “Bring your witnesses, who can testify that Allah has prohibited this.” Even if they testify, you (O Muhammad) don’t testify with them. You don’t follow desires of those who have rejected Our Verses, those who don’t believe in the Hereafter, and they set up others as equals with their Lord
Say (O Muhammad): “Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you that you don’t associate anything with Him, do good with parents, don’t kill your children (for fear) of poverty - We provide sustenance for you and for them; don’t draw near those shameful deeds that are committed openly or secretly, don’t kill a life which Allah has forbidden, except in a just cause. He has commanded you these so that you may understand.
Don’t draw near the wealth of the orphan, except that which is better (to improve), until the orphan reaches maturity, and give full measure and weight with justice. We don’t burden anyone, but to its capacity. When you speak, be just even if it affects your own relative, and you fulfill the covenant of Allah. He commands you these so that you may take heed.
Surely, this is My Right Way, so follow it, and you don’t follow other ways, lest they will scatter you from His way. He has commanded you this so that you may become pious
Then, We gave Moses the book (the Torah) to complete (Our Favor) on those who would do good, it explained every thing, and was guidance and a Mercy, so that they might believe in meeting with their Lord.”
This is a blessed book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down, so follow it and fear Allah so that you may be shown Mercy.
Lest you (pagan Arabs) say: “The book was sent down only to 2 groups before us, and surely, we were unaware from their study,”
or lest you (pagan Arabs) say: “Surely if the book had been sent down to us, we would have been better guided than them.” Surely clear proof (the Qur’an) has come to you from your Lord, guidance and a Mercy. Who is then more unjust than the one who rejects the Verses of Allah and turns away from them? We shall requite those who turn away from Our Verses with severe punishment for what they used to turn away.
Are they waiting except that the angels should come to them, or your Lord should come, or some Verses of your Lord should come! The day when some Verses of your Lord do come, a soul will not benefit its belief if it had not believed before, or earned good through its faith. Say: “You wait! We (too) are waiting.”
Surely, those who divide their religion and break up into factions, you (O Muhammad) have no concern with them in the least. Surely, their case is with Allah, Who will tell them what they used to do.
Whoever does a good deed, shall have 10 times like thereof, and whoever does an evil deed, shall be punished only like thereof, and they will not be wronged.
Say (O Muhammad): “Surely, my Lord has guided me to a Right Way, a right religion, way of Abraham, the upright and he was not of the polytheists.”
Say (O Muhammad): “Surely, my prayer, my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
He has no partner. Thus I am commanded, and I am the first of those who surrender (Muslims).”
Say: “Should I seek a Lord other than Allah, and He is the Lord of every thing? Every soul will earn fruits of its own deeds; no bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return and He will tell you that you have been differing
And it is He who has made you inheritors of the earth, and exalted some of you over others in ranks so that He may try you in what He has given you. Surely your Lord is swift in retribution, and certainly He is Forgiving, Merciful.”
