6:1  Praise be to God, the one who created the heavens and the earth, and made the darkness and the light. Then those who disbelieve ascribe equals with their Lord.
6:2  He is the one who created you from clay; then He decreed a term, - and a named term with Him. Then you doubt.
6:3  And He is God in the heavens and in the earth. He knows your secret and your open, and He knows what you earn.
6:4  And no sign comes to them from the signs of their Lord but they turn away from it.
6:5  Then indeed, they have called the truth a lie when it came to them, but soon there shall come to them news of what they mocked at.
6:6  Do they not see how many a generation We have destroyed before them, We had established them in the earth as We have not established you, and We sent the sky upon them pouring abundantly, and We made the rivers flow beneath them? Then We destroyed them in their sins, and raised up other generations after them.
6:7  Had We sent down to you a book on paper, and they had touched it with their hands, those who disbelieve surely would have said, 'This is not except clear magic.'
6:8  And they say, 'Why has not an angel been sent down on him?' And if We had sent down an angel the affair surely would have been decided, then they would have had no respite.
6:9  And had We made him an angel, certainly We would have made him a man; and certainly We would have confused for them what they are confusing.
6:10  And certainly messengers before you were mocked, but those who scoffed of them were encompassed by what they mocked at.
6:11  Say, 'Travel in the earth then see how was the end of the deniers.'
6:12  Say, 'Whose is what is in the heavens and the earth?' Say, 'God's.' He has prescribed mercy on Himself. He will surely gather you together to the Day of Resurrection. There is no doubt about it, those who have lost their souls, then they do not believe.
6:13  And His is whatever dwells in the night and the day, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
6:14  Say, 'Shall I take a patron other than God, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, And He feeds, And is not fed?' Say, 'Indeed, I have been commanded to be the first who submits, and not be of the idolaters.'
6:15  Say, 'Indeed, I fear, if I rebel against my Lord, the punishment of a mighty day.'
6:16  Whomever it is averted from on that day, then surely He will have had mercy on him; and that is the clear success.
6:17  And if God touches you with harm, then there is no remover of it but He. And if He touches you with good, then He is powerful over everything.
6:18  And He is the Supreme over His servants, and He is the Wise, the Aware.
6:19  Say, 'What thing is greatest as a testimony?' Say, 'God is witness between me and you. And this Quran was inspired to me that I may warn you with it and whoever it reaches. Do you indeed testify that there are other gods with God?' Say, 'I do not testify.' Say, 'He is only one god, and indeed I am clear of what you associate.'
6:20  Those to whom We have given the Book know him as they know their sons; - those who have lost their souls, then they do not believe.
6:21  And who is more unjust than he who forges against God a lie, or says His signs are lies? Indeed, the wrongdoers shall not prosper.
6:22  And the day We shall gather them all together, then We shall say to those who have associated others, 'Where are your associates those whom you used to claim?'
6:23  Then they will have no excuse but to say, 'By God, our Lord, we were not idolaters.'
6:24  See how they lie against themselves, and what they forged has gone astray from them.
6:25  And among them are those who listen to you, but We have placed a veil upon their hearts lest they should understand it, and in their ears is deafness; and though they see every sign they would not believe in it; until when they come to you to argue with you, those who disbelieve say, 'This is not except legends of the former people.'
6:26  And they forbid it and they avoid it; - but they destroy none but themselves; and they do not perceive.
6:27  And if you could see when they are stationed before the fire and say, 'Oh, would that we were sent back. And we would not call our Lord's signs lies, and we would be of the believers.'
6:28  Nay, is shown to them what they hid before; and if they were sent back certainly they would return to what they were forbidden, and indeed, they certainly are liars.
6:29  And they say, 'There is nothing except our worldly life and we shall not be raised.'
6:30  If you could see when they are stationed before their Lord; He says, 'Is this not the truth?' They say, 'Yea, by our Lord.' He says, 'Then taste the punishment, for that you used to disbelieve.'
6:31  Lost indeed are those who deny the meeting with God, until when the Hour comes suddenly upon them they say, 'Oh, our regret over what we neglected concerning it.' And they shall bear their burdens on their backs. Lo, evil is what they bear.
6:32  And the worldly life is nothing except play and diversion, and surely the home of the hereafter is better for those who fear. Do you not then understand?
6:33  Indeed, we know that what they say grieves you; And indeed, they do not call you liar; but the unjust deny the signs of God.
6:34  And certainly messengers before you were called liars; but they were patient of being called liars and of being hurt until Our help came to them; and there is none to change the words of God - And certainly there has come to you of the news of the messengers.
6:35  And if their turning away is hard for you, then if you are able to seek a tunnel in the earth, or a ladder in the sky, to bring them a sign - but if God willed surely He would have gathered them on the guidance, so do not be of the ignorant.
6:36  Only those who hear will answer; and the dead God will raise them up, then to Him they shall be returned.
6:37  And they say, 'Unless there is sent down a sign from his Lord' - Say, 'Indeed, God is able to send down a sign, but most of them do not know.'
6:38  And there is not a creature in the earth nor a bird that flies with both its wings, but are nations like you; We have neglected nothing in the Book; then to their Lord they shall be gathered.
6:39  And those who say Our signs are lies- deafness and dumbness, in darkness. Whomever God wills He leads him astray, and whomever He wills He places him on the straight path.
6:40  Say, 'Have you seen if there came to you God's punishment or there came to you the Hour, would you call on other than God, if you are truthful?'
6:41  Nay, on Him you would call, and He will remove what you call upon Him for if He wills; and you shall forget what you associate.
6:42  And certainly We sent to nations before you, then We seized them with distress and adversity that perhaps they might be humble.
6:43  And if only, when Our violence came upon them, they had been humble. - But their hearts were hard, and the devil beautified for them what they were doing.
6:44  And when they forgot what they were reminded of, We opened on them the gates of everything, until when they rejoiced in what they were given, We seized them suddenly, and lo, they were in despair.
6:45  And the roots of the people who did wrong were cut off; and praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds.
6:46  Say, 'Have you seen if God seizes your hearing and your sight, and sets a seal on your hearts - who is god other than God to bring it to you?' See how We turn about the signs; then they turn away.
6:47  Say, 'Have you seen if God's punishment should come upon you suddenly or openly, would any be destroyed except the unjust people?'
6:48  And We do not send the messengers except as heralds of glad tidings and of warning, and whoever believes and acts aright, then there is no fear upon them, and they shall not grieve.
6:49  And those who say Our signs are lies, the punishment shall touch them, for that they used to disobey.
6:50  Say, 'I do not say to you with me are the treasuries of God, nor I know the unseen; and I do not say to you, I am an angel - I only follow what is revealed to me.' Say, 'Are the blind and the seeing equal? Do you not reflect?
6:51  And warn with it those who fear that they will be gathered to their Lord; there is no patron for them besides Him, and no intercessor; perhaps they may fear.
6:52  And do not drive away those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, desiring His face; not upon you is anything of their account and not upon them is anything of your account; - so were you to drive them away, then you would be of the unjust.
6:53  And thus We have tried some of them with others, that they may say, 'Are these those unto whom God has been gracious amongst us?' Does not God know those who give thanks?
6:54  And when those who believe in Our signs come to you, then say, 'Peace be on you. Your Lord has prescribed upon Himself mercy; indeed, he of you who does evil in ignorance, then turns after it and does right, - then indeed, He is forgiving, compassionate.'
6:55  And thus We detail the signs, that the way of the sinners may be manifest.
6:56  Say, 'Indeed, I am forbidden to worship those whom you call on besides God.' Say, 'I will not follow your lusts, certainly I would err then and I would not be of the guided.'
6:57  Say, 'Indeed, I am on a clear proof from my Lord, and you call it a lie. Not with me is what you seek to hasten of it. The judgment is only God's. He relates the truth, and He is the best of deciders.'
6:58  Say, 'If what you seek to hasten of it were with me, the matter would have certainly been decided between you and me; and God knows best of the unjust.'
6:59  And with Him are the keys of the unseen. None knows them but He; And He knows what is in the land and the sea; and not a leaf falls but He knows it; nor a grain in the darkness of the earth, nor anything that is moist, nor anything that is dry, but is in a clear Book.
6:60  And He is the one who takes your souls by night, and knows what you have committed by day; then He raises you up therein, that a named term may be fulfilled; then to Him is your return, then He will inform you of what you have done.
6:61  And He is the Supreme over His servants; and He sends guardians over you; until when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and they neglect not.
6:62  Then they are returned to God, their sovereign, the True. Lo, His is the judgment and He is the swiftest of the reckoners.
6:63  Say, 'Who saves you from the darkness of the land and the sea?' You call upon Him in humility and in secret, 'Indeed, if He saves us from this, we will surely be of the thankful.'
6:64  Say, 'God saves you from it, and from every trouble, then you associate others.'
6:65  Say, 'He is able to send punishment on you from above you or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you into sects, and to make some of you taste the violence of others.' See how We turnabout the signs; perhaps they may understand.
6:66  And your people called it a lie, while it is the truth. Say, 'I am not a trustee over you.'
6:67  For every news is a fixed time, and soon you will know.
6:68  And when you see those who plunge into vain discourse about Our signs, then turn away from them until they plunge into vain discourse about a story other than it; and it may be that the devil may make you forget; but do not sit, after the remembrance, with the unjust people.
6:69  Nothing of their account falls upon those who fear; but a reminding; perhaps they may fear.
6:70  And leave those who have taken their religion as play and diversion, and whom the worldly life has deceived, and remind with it lest a soul is given up for what it has earned; besides God, it has no patron and no intercessor; and though it should compensate - every compensation, it would not be taken from it. Those are the ones who are given up for what they have earned, for them is a drink of hot water, and painful punishment for that they disbelieved.
6:71  Say, 'Shall we call, besides God, on what neither profits us nor harms us, and be turned back on our heels after God has guided us, like him whom the devil has led away bewildered in the earth, who has companions who call him to guidance, "Come to us?"' Say, 'Indeed, God's guidance, it is the guidance, and we are commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds.
6:72  And be steadfast in prayer and fear Him, and He is the one to whom you shall be gathered.'
6:73  And He is the one who created the heavens and the earth with the truth; and the day He says, 'Be,' Then it is. His speech is the truth; His is the kingdom on the day the horn will be blown in; the knower of the unseen and the seen; and He is the Wise, the Aware.
6:74  And when Abraham said to his father Azar, 'Do you take idols for gods? Indeed, I see you and your people in clear error.'
6:75  And thus did We show Abraham the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, and that he may be of those who are sure.
6:76  And when the night overshadowed him he saw a star. He said, 'This is my Lord;' But when it set, he said, 'I love not those that set.'
6:77  And when he saw the moon rising, he said, 'This is my Lord;' But when it set he said, 'If my Lord does not guide me I shall surely be of the people who err.'
6:78  And when he saw the sun rising he said, 'This is my Lord, this is greater;' But when it set, he said, 'O my people! Indeed, I am clear of what you associate.
6:79  Indeed, I have turned my face to the one who originated the heavens and the earth, upright, and I am not of the idolaters.'
6:80  And his people disputed with him; - he said, 'Do you dispute with me concerning God, and certainly He has guided me? And I fear not what you associate with Him, except my Lord wills anything. My Lord encompasses everything in knowledge, then will you not remember?
6:81  And how should I fear what you associate while you do not fear that you have associated with God what He has not sent down on you authority for it? So which of the two parties has more right to security, if you know?
6:82  Those who believe and do not mix their faith with wrong, those, for them is security and they are guided.
6:83  And that is Our argument, We gave it to Abraham against his people; - We raise up in degrees whom We will; Indeed, your Lord is wise, knowing.
6:84  And We bestowed to him Isaac and Jacob, all We guided. And Noah We guided before; and of his offspring, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. And thus We reward the good-doers.
6:85  And Zachariah and John and Jesus and Ilyas, all were of the righteous.
6:86  And Ishmael and Al Yasa'a and Jonah and Lot, and all We favoured over the worlds;
6:87  And of their fathers and their offspring and their brothers; and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.
6:88  That is God's guidance; He guides with it whom He wills of His servants; and if they associated partners, - surely vain for them is what they used to do.
6:89  Those are the ones to whom We gave the Book and the judgment and the prophethood; and if these disbelieve in it, then indeed, We have entrusted it to a people who are not disbelievers in it.
6:90  Those are the ones whom God has guided, and by their guidance be led. Say, 'I will not ask you for it a reward: it is not except a reminder to the worlds.'
6:91  They do not prize God at His true worth when they say, 'God has not sent down anything on a mortal.' Say, 'Who revealed the Book which Moses came with, a light and a guidance for mankind? You put it on papers which you show, and you hide much; and you are taught what you knew not, neither you nor your fathers.' Say, 'God,' Then leave them in their vain discourse to play.
6:92  And this is a Book which We have sent down, blessed, confirming that which was before it, and that you may warn the mother of the cities, and those who are around her. And those who believe in the hereafter believe in it, and they over their prayers are guarding.
6:93  Who is more unjust than he who forges against God a lie or says, 'It has been inspired to me,' while nothing has been inspired to him, and who says, 'I will reveal the like of what of what God has revealed'? And if you could see when the unjust are in the floods of death, and the angels stretch out their hands, 'Bring out your souls! Today you shall be recompensed with the punishment of disgrace, for that you used to say against God other than the truth and you were proud against His signs.'
6:94  And certainly you have come to Us alone as We created you the first time, and you have left what We granted you behind your backs. And We do not see with you your intercessors those whom you claimed that they were associates in you. Indeed, it has been cut asunder between you; and strayed away from you is what you used to claim.
6:95  Indeed, God is the cleaver of the grain and the date-stone; He brings forth the living from the dead, and is the bringer-forth of the dead from the living. That is God, so how are you turned away?
6:96  The cleaver of the morning. And He has made the night for repose, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. That is the decree of the Mighty, the Knowing.
6:97  And He is the one who made for you the stars that you might be guided with them in the darkness of the land and the sea. Certainly, We have detailed the signs for a people who know.
6:98  And He is the one who produced you from one soul, and a settlement and a resting place. Certainly, We have detailed the signs for a people who understand.
6:99  And He is the one who sends down from the sky water; and We bring forth with it plants of everything; and We bring forth from it green, from which We bring forth grain in full ear; and from the palm from its spathe near clusters; and gardens of grapes and the olives and the pomegranates, alike and unlike; look at its fruit when it fruits and ripens. Indeed, in that are signs for the people who believe.
6:100  And they make the jinn partners with God, though He created them. And they ascribed to Him sons and daughters, without knowledge. Glory be to Him and high is He above what they attribute.
6:101  Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son, and He has no female companion, and He has created everything, and He has knowledge of everything?
6:102  That is God your Lord. There is no god but He, the creator of everything; so worship Him. And He is over everything a trustee.
6:103  Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives vision; and He is the Subtle, the Aware.
6:104  Indeed, insight has come to you from your Lord. So whoever sees, then it is for his soul, and whoever is blind then it is against it; and I am not a guardian over you.
6:105  And thus We turn about the signs, that they may say, 'You have studied,' And that We may make it clear for a people who know.
6:106  Follow what is inspired to you from your Lord; there is no god but He, and turn away from the idolaters.
6:107  And if God had willed, they would not have associated partners. And We have not made you a guardian over them, nor are you over them a trustee.
6:108  And do not insult those whom they call on other than God, then they may insult God in enmity without knowledge. Thus We beautified to every nation their works. Then unto their Lord is their return, then He will inform them of what they used to do.
6:109  They swore by God their most strenuous oath, if there come to them a sign they will indeed believe in it. Say, 'Signs are only with God;' - But what will make you perceive that when it has come, they will not believe.
6:110  And We will turn their hearts and their eyesights, as they did not believe in it the first time; and We will leave them, in their immoderation, blindly wandering.
6:111  And had We sent down to them the angels, and the dead had spoken to them, and We had gathered everything before them, they would not have believed unless that God willed - but most of them are ignorant.
6:112  And thus We have made for every prophet an enemy: devils of mankind and the jinn; he inspires - some of them to some - the embellishment of speech, deception. And had your Lord willed they would not have done it; so leave them and what they invent.
6:113  And let the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter incline to it; and let them be pleased with it; and let them earn what they are earning.
6:114  Shall I then seek a judge other than God? And He is the one who has sent down to you the Book in detail, and those to whom We gave the Book know that it is sent down from your Lord with the truth, so do not be of the doubters.
6:115  The word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and justice; there is none to change His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.
6:116  And if you obey most of those who are in the earth, they will lead you astray from the path of God; they follow not except conjecture, and they do not except lie.
6:117  Indeed, your Lord, He knows best who errs from His path, and He knows best of the guided ones.
6:118  So eat of what God's name has been pronounced upon, if you are believers in His signs.
6:119  What ails you that you do not eat from what God's name is pronounced upon, and indeed, He has detailed to you what He has made unlawful for you? Except what you are forced to; and indeed, many surely lead astray by their desires, without knowledge. Indeed, your Lord, He knows best of the transgressors.
6:120  And leave the outside of sin and the inside thereof; indeed, those who earn sin shall be recompensed for what they have earned.
6:121  And do not eat of what the name of God has not been pronounced upon, and indeed, it is surely disobedience. And indeed, the devils inspire their friends that they may dispute with you; and if you obey them, indeed, you are idolaters.
6:122  Is he who was dead and We gave him life, and made for him a light with which he walks among men, like him whose likeness is in the darkness, from which he cannot come out? Thus is beautified to the disbelievers what they used to do.
6:123  And thus We have placed in every town the greatest of its sinners, that they may plot therein. And they plot only against themselves, and they do not perceive.
6:124  And when a sign comes to them, they say, 'We will not believe until we are given like what the messengers of God were given.' God knows best where to put His message. There shall befall those who sin, humiliation in God's sight, and grievous punishment for what they used to plot.
6:125  So whomsoever God wishes to guide, He expands his breast to the submission; and whomsoever He wishes to lead astray, He makes his breast narrow, straitened, as though he would mount up into the sky; thus God places the abomination on those who do not believe.
6:126  And this is the way of your Lord - straight. Certainly We have detailed the signs for a people who remember.
6:127  For them is the abode of peace with their Lord, and He is their patron for what they have done.
6:128  And the day He shall gather them all together, 'O assembly of the jinn! Certainly, you have got many of mankind.' And their clients among mankind shall say, 'Our Lord! Some of us profited by others; and we have reached our term which you delayed for us.' He says, 'The fire is your abode, to dwell therein forever.' - except what God wills; indeed, your Lord is wise, knowing.
6:129  And thus We make some of the wrongdoers patrons to some, for what they used to earn.
6:130  O assembly of jinn and mankind! Did there not come to you messengers from you relating to you My signs, and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours? They say, 'We bear witness against ourselves.' And the worldly life deceived them, and they bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
6:131  That is that your Lord is not one who destroys the towns unjustly while their people are heedless.
6:132  And for all are degrees of what they have done; and your Lord is not heedless of what they do.
6:133  And your Lord is the rich, the possessor of mercy; if He wills He can remove you, and can cause what He wills to succeed you after you; as He raised you from the offspring of other people.
6:134  Indeed, what you are promised will surely come, and you cannot escape.
6:135  Say, 'O my people! Work according to your position, indeed, I am working; and soon you shall know whose is the end of the abode. Indeed, the unjust shall not prosper.'
6:136  They set apart for God, from what He produced of tilth and cattle, a portion, and they say, 'This is God's;' - By their claim - 'And this is for our associates;' But what is for their associates does not reach to God, and what is for God then it reaches to their associates; - evil is what they judge.
6:137  And thus have their associates beautified to many of the idolaters the killing of their children, to destroy them, and to confuse for them their religion; but had God willed they would not have done it, so leave them and what they have forged.
6:138  And they say, 'These cattle and tilth are inviolable; none shall eat them, except whom we will,' - By their claim - And there are cattle whose backs are prohibited, and cattle upon which God's name is not pronounced, - forging against Him. He shall reward them for what they have forged.
6:139  And they say, 'What is in the wombs of these cattle is reserved for our males and unlawful for our wives, but if it is dead, then they are partners in it.' He will reward them for their attribution; indeed, He is wise, knowing.
6:140  Certainly, lost are those who kill their children foolishly, without knowledge, and prohibit what God has provided them, forging against God; certainly, they have erred and are not guided.
6:141  And He is the one who produces gardens trellised, and untrellised, and the palms and corn land, with various food, and olives, and pomegranates, alike and unlike. Eat of its fruit when it fruits, and give its due on the day of its harvest, and do not be extravagant; indeed, He does not love the extravagant.
6:142  And of cattle are there some to ride on and to spread. Eat of what God has provided you, and do not follow the footsteps of the devil; indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.
6:143  Eight pairs, - of the sheep two, and of the goats two; say, 'Are the two males unlawful, or the two females, or what the wombs of the two females contain? Inform me with knowledge if you are truthful.'
6:144  And of the camels two, and of the cows two; say, 'Are the two males unlawful, or the two females, or what the wombs of the two females contain? Or were you witnesses when God instructed you with this? - Then who is more unjust than he who invents a lie against God, to lead mankind astray without knowledge? Indeed, God does not guide the unjust people.'
6:145  Say, 'I cannot find in what is inspired to me anything unlawful for the taster to taste; except it be dead, or blood that has been shed, or the flesh of swine, - for indeed, it is an abomination - or disobedience, consecrated to other than God. But whoever is forced, not seeking nor transgressing, - then, indeed, your Lord is forgiving, compassionate.'
6:146  And to those who were Jews We prohibited everything that has a solid hoof; and of the cows and the sheep We prohibited to them their fat, except what their backs carry, or the entrails or what is mixed with bone; that is their recompense for their insolence. And indeed, We surely are truthful.
6:147  And if they deny you, then say, 'Your Lord is the possessor of vast mercy, and His violence will not be turned back from the sinful people.'
6:148  Those who associate partners will say, 'Had God willed, we had not associated partners nor our fathers; nor would we have prohibited anything.' Thus those who were before them denied until they tasted Our punishment. Say, 'Have you any knowledge with you? Then bring it forth to us: you follow not except conjecture, and you do not except lie.'
6:149  Say, 'Then God's is the conclusive argument; and had He willed, surely He would have guided you all.'
6:150  Say, 'Bring your witnesses, those who bear witness that God has prohibited this!' But if they bear witness, then do not bear witness with them; nor follow the lust of those who say Our signs are lies, and those who do not believe in the hereafter, and they make peers with their Lord.
6:151  Say, 'Come! I will recite what your Lord has forbidden you, that you do not associate anything with Him, and with the parents, goodness, and do not kill your children out of poverty; - We will provide for you and them; - and do not draw near immoralities, what is apparent of them and what is concealed, and do not kill the soul, which God has forbidden except with the right; that He has instructed you with, perhaps you may understand.'
6:152  And do not draw near to the wealth of the orphan, except with that which is best, until he reaches his strength; and give full measure and weight with justice. We do not task a soul except its capacity; and when you speak, then be just, though it be to a relative. And God's covenant fulfil. That He has instructed you with, perhaps you may remember.
6:153  And indeed, this is My straight way; so follow it. And do not follow paths, then they will separate you from His way; that He has instructed you with, perhaps you may fear.
6:154  Then We gave Moses the Book, complete for him who does good, and an explanation of everything and a guidance and a mercy; perhaps in the meeting with their Lord they will believe.
6:155  And this is a Book which We have sent down, - blessed; so follow it and fear; perhaps you may obtain mercy.
6:156  Lest you say, 'The Book was only sent down upon two parties before us; and indeed, we were certainly heedless of their study.'
6:157  Or, you should say, 'Had we had a book revealed to us we should surely have been more guided than them.' So certainly there has come to you a clear proof from your Lord, and a guidance and a mercy; who then is more unjust than he who calls God's signs lies, and turns away from them? We will reward those who turn away from Our signs with an evil punishment for that they turned away.
6:158  Are they waiting except that the angels should come to them, or that your Lord should come, or that some signs of your Lord should come? The day some signs of your Lord come, its faith shall profit no soul which did not believe before, or earned good by its faith. Say, 'Wait. Indeed, we are waiting.'

6:161  Say, 'Indeed me, my Lord has guided me to a straight way, a right religion, - the religion of Abraham, upright, and he was not of the idolaters.'
6:162  Say, 'Indeed, my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death belong to God, the Lord of the worlds.
6:163  He has no partner; and with that I have been commanded, and I am the first of those who submit.'

6:165  And He is the one who made you vicegerents of the earth, and raised some of you above some in degree, to try you in what He has given you; - indeed, your Lord is swift in the punishment, and indeed, He is surely forgiving, compassionate.
