Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom (of the universe) and He has power over everything,
Who created death and life to test you (as to) which of you is best in deeds, and He is the Mighty, the Protectively Forgiving,
Who created the seven skies (higher levels) in accordance with each other, you do not see in the creation of the Beneficent (Allah) any discordance, then look again. Do you see any rifts (discontinuity)?
Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you defeated (in its purpose) and it will be tired.
And We adorned the sky of the world with lamps and We made them missiles for the devils and We have prepared for them the punishment of blazing fire.
And for those who do not believe in their Fosterer, is the punishment of hell and it is an evil destination.
When they will be thrown into it, they will hear its roaring and it will blaze,
almost bursting with fury. Whenever a batch is thrown into it, its guards will ask them, “Did no warner come to you?”
They will say, “Why not! a warner had indeed come to us, but we denied and we said: Allah has not sent down anything, you are in nothing but great error.”
And they will say, “Had we but listened or understood, we would not have been among the inhabitants of blazing fire.”
So they will confess their sins, therefore away with the inhabitants of the blazing fire.
Those who fear their Fosterer without having seen (Him), for them there is certainly protective forgiveness and a great reward.
And (whether) you hide your word or manifest it, He is the Knower of what the bosoms (hearts) possess.
Will He Who created not know, when He is the Subtilely Informed?
He it is Who has made the earth subdued for you, so move about in its surroundings and eat from His provision and to Him will be the return after death.
Or are you secure from Him Who is in the sky, that He will (not) make the earth sink with you when it is repeatedly shaken (during an earth quake)?
Or are you secure from Him Who is in the sky, that He will (not) send on you a sandstorm (or volcanic debris)? Then you will know how My warning was.
And those before them indeed denied, then how was My rejection (of them)?
Or did they not see towards the birds above them, spreading and contracting (their wings)? No one holds them except the Beneficent (Allah), He is certainly the Seer of everything.
Or who is it that will act as an army for you to help you, besides the Beneficent (Allah)? The infidels are in nothing but deception.
Or who is it who will provide for you if He withholds His provision? No, they persist in revolt and hatred.
Then, is he who walks headlong on his face better guided or he who walks balanced (on his feet and) on the straight path?
Say, “He it is Who produced you and made for you (the faculties of) hearing and seeing and the hearts, little is the gratitude you show.”
Say, “He it is Who has multiplied (and spread) you in the earth and towards Him you will be gathered.”
And they say, “When will this promise (be fulfilled) if you are truthful?”
Say, “The knowledge (of it) is only with Allah and I am only a clear warner.”
So when they see it near, the faces of those who did not believe will be grieved and it will be said, “This is what you used to ask for.”
Say, “Have you considered, Allah can destroy me and those with me or be merciful to us, but who will protect the infidels from the painful punishment?”
Say, “He is the Beneficent, we believe in Him and put our trust in Him, so you will come to know who it is that is in clear error.”
Say, “Have you considered, if your water were to go down, then who will bring flowing water?”
