Most exalted is the One in whose hand is the (absolute) sovereignty (of the heavens and the earth). And He is Most Capable of doing whatever He Desires .
He is the One Who created life and death so that He may let you experience hardship in order to identify which of you is best in deeds. Lo! He is the Almighty, the Oft-Forgiving,
Who has created the seven heavens in layers. You can see no imperfection in the creation of the True Merciful (God). Then cast your eyes again, turn them toward the heaven: can you detect a single flaw?
Then look again and again: your sight will return in the end to you completely humbled and exhausted.
And verily We adorned the lowest heavens with lamps and made them as missile launch facilities to strike against the devils. For them We have prepared a punishment of the blazing Fire .
(We have also prepared) for those who have no Faith in their Lord the punishment of Hellfire- What a dreadful journey’s end!
When they are cast into Hellfire, they will hear it terribly roaring as it boils.
It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is thrown into Hellfire, its keepers will ask them: "Did none come to you to warn?"
They will say: "Yes indeed! A messenger did come to warn us, but we accused him of lying and told him: “Allâh has revealed nothing and you are only in utter deception.”
They also say: "If we had discerned and used our intelligence, we would not have been among the Denizens of the Inferno."
So they confessed their iniquitous deeds. Now the Denizens of Hell are deprived (of the Mercy of Allâh).
Surely those who show honor and reverence for their Lord in secret will have forgiveness and a great reward.
Whether you conceal your word or disclose it, Allâh is Fully Aware of whatsoever is stored up in the hearts.
How could He who has created all creation does not know about His own creation? And He is the Subtle, the All-Aware.
He is the One Who has made the earth subservient to you, so walk in the path thereof and eat of His provision. To Him will be the resurrection.
Do you feel secure that the One Who is in the heavens will not cause you to sink into the earth when it is quivering violently?
Or do you feel secure that the One Who is in the heavens will not send against you a violent whirlwind? Then you will come to know how serious the warning was.
And verily those who were before them denied (the Messengers of Allâh). And how dreadful was My condemnation!
Do they not see the birds above them spreading out their wings and closing them? Nothing upholds them except the True Merciful (God). Indeed, He is the All-Seer of everything.
Or who is it that will be a host for you to help you against (the divine retribution) besides the True Merciful (God)? Those who have no Faith in Allâh are in nothing but lost in a web of self-delusion.
Or who is it that will be provide you with means of sustenance if He withholds His provisions? Nay, but they persist in impudence and aversion.
Is he who walks with his head hanging down more rightly guided, or he who walks upright on a straight path?
Say: "He is the One Who brought you into being and endowed you with hearing, sight, and hearts. Yet you show little gratitude!
Say: "He is the One Who multiplies you in earth, and to Him will you be gathered together."
They say: “When will the promise- (Day of Judgment)- be fulfilled if you are truthful?"
Say: "Such knowledge is with Allâh. I am only one who gives you genuine warnings."
But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who persistently refuse to yield to the Truth will be distressed. It will be said (to them): "This is what you used to call for."
Say: "Have you cogitated: If Allâh decides to obliterate me and those who are with me, or to shower us with His Mercy, who is there to protect those who have no Faith in Allâh from a painful punishment?"
Say: "He is the True Merciful (God). We do affirm our Faith in Him; and we do depend on Him with full trust. You, Polytheists, will soon know (when the punishment comes), and which of us has deviated from the truth!’
Say: "Have you cogitated: If it happens that your water sinks away, who then, will bring you flowing water?!
