64:1  Whatever is of Heaven and Earth glorifies Allah. Dominion is His, and to Him all praise is due. He has power over all things.
64:2  It is He who has created you. Among you are believers and unbelievers. Know that Allah is fully aware of all that you do.
64:3  He created the skies and Earth with truth. He has given you form and made the human body a beautiful shape. To Him is the ultimate goal.
64:4  He knows all that is in Heaven and throughout Earth. He knows all that is concealed as well as what is revealed. Allah has full knowledge of what is in the hearts.
64:5  Have you not heard the story of those who previously rejected faith? They tasted the evil result of their conduct, and they had a horrid punishment.
64:6  That was because, after their messengers presented obvious signs, they said, “You, mere humans, are trying to tell us how to live?” They rejected and turned away, but Allah can do without them. Allah is Independent, the Praised One.
64:7  The unbelievers think that they will not be resurrected. Say, “Yes, by my Lord, you shall surely be resurrected, and then you will be told all that you ever did. That is an easy task for Allah.”
64:8  Believe, therefore, in Allah and His messenger and in the light We have descended. Allah is Fully Aware of all that you do.
64:9  The day that He assembles you on the Day of Congregation will be a day of mutual loss and gain. For those who believed in Allah and achieved righteous deeds, He will conceal any sins. He will admit them to gardens, beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will live forever. That will be the supreme achievement.
64:10  But those who reject faith and treat Our signs as fiction will be companions of flames in which they will dwell continuously. That fate is an evil goal indeed.
64:11  No kind of crisis can occur without the permission of Allah. For the believer in Allah, Allah guides his/her heart, and Allah knows everything.
64:12  So obey Allah and obey His messenger. If you backslide, however, the duty of Our messenger is merely to proclaim clearly.
64:13  Allah! No god is there except Him. On Allah, therefore, may the believers trust!
64:14  O Believers, certainly among your spouses and children there may be antagonists. Beware of those [family members who intentionally or inadvertently come between you and your duties to God]. If you forgive, ignore, and excuse, then certainly Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.
64:15  Your wealth and children may pose a trial for you, but with Allah is the highest reward.
64:16  So revere Allah to your fullest potential. Listen and obey, and expense [for charity] to benefit yourselves. Whoever is rescued [through his/her generous acts] from greed within his/her soul is among those who achieve prosperity.
64:17  Advance to Allah a beautiful loan, and He will multiply it for you and will forgive you. Allah is Most Appreciative, Most Tolerant.
64:18  He knows what is secret and what is public. He is the Victorious, the Perfectly Wise.
