Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty! And He has power over all things
The One Who has created the death and the life to test which of you is good in conduct. And He is the One Omnipotent, Forgiving
The One Who has created seven heavens one over another. You shall not see anything amiss in the creation of the Gracious One! Then look again: can you see any incongruities
Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you humbled and tired
And verily We have adorned the heaven near [the earth] with lamps [stars and planets], and We have made it a stonewall for the devils [beyond which they cannot proceed]. And We have prepared for them punishment of the blazing Fire [Hell]
And for those who suppress their belief in their Lord there is the punishment of Hell. And it is a bad journey's end
When they are flung therein they hear it roar as it boils up
As if it [Hell] would burst with rage! Whenever a crowd [of wicked people] is thrown therein the wardens thereof ask them, "Had not anyone come to warn you?"
They say, "Yes, verily, a warner did come to us, but we refused to believe him and said, `Allah has not sent down anything, you are not but under a great delusion!'"
And they say, "Had we but listened or had sense, we would not now have been among the dwellers in the blazing Fire."
So they acknowledge their sins! And so the dwellers in the blazing Fire are done away with
Those who fear their Lord without seeing Him — for them is forgiveness and a great reward
And whether you conceal your opinion or proclaim it, He [Allah] does indeed know all that is in the minds
Would He not know what He created!? And He is the One Subtle, Aware
He it is Who has made the earth subservient to you, so walk through its winding paths and eat of what He has provided for. And to Him will the Resurrection be
Are you sure that One in the heaven will not cause the earth to swallow you while it is in a state of convulsion
Or are you sure that the One in the heaven will not let loose on you a hurricane? But you shall soon know how terribly true My warning was
And verily those before them refused to believe! And how severe in effect was My forsaking them!
Do they not see the birds above them spreading and folding their wings? Holds them up none but the Gracious One! HE does indeed look to all things
Who is it — other than the Gracious One — that will be like an army to help you out? Those who suppress the Truth are labouring under nothing but illusion
Who is it that will provide for you if He should wit old His provision? Nay, but they are given to pride and aversion
Is he who walks falling on his face [stumbling] better guided, or he who walks upright on a straight road
Say, "He it is who has brought you into being, and has endowed you with the hearing, the sights and the intellect. But you are seldom grateful!"
Say, "He it is Who multiplied you on the earth, and to Him you shall be gathered."
And they ask, "When will this promise be fulfilled, if what you say is true?"
Say, "That knowledge is only with Allah, and I am but a plain warner."
Then as they see it close to them [in the Hereafter], the faces of those who suppress the Truth will be distraught, and it will be said to them, "This is what you had been asking for!"
Say, "Do you see, whether Allah causes me (Muhammad) and those with me to perish or He bestows mercy upon us, [it is His Will?]. But, then, who will protect those who suppress the Truth from a painful punishment!?"h
Say, "He is the Gracious One. In Him we believe and in Him we put our trust. And you will soon know who is clearly astray."
Say, "Do you see if your waters should sink deep into the ground, who then could bring you flowing water?"
