In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Allah tests the believers to see who is truthful and who is a liar
1 Alif Lam Mim. 3422
2 Do men think that they will be left alone on saying "We believe" and that they will not be tested? 3423
3 We did test those before them and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false. 3424
4 Do those who practice evil think that they will get the better of us? Evil is their judgment! 3425
5 For those whose hopes are in the meeting with Allah (in the Hereafter let them strive); for the Term (appointed) by Allah is surely coming: and He hears and knows (all things). 3426 3427
6 And if any strive (with might and main) they do so for their own souls: for Allah is free of all needs from all creation. 3428
7 Those who believe and work righteous deeds from them shall We blot out all evil (that may be) in them and We shall reward them according to the best of their deeds. 3429
Be kind to your parents but do not obey them in the matter of shirk and Those who say, "Follow us we will bear your burden," are liars
8 We have enjoined on man kindness to parents: but if they (either of them) strive (to force) thee to join with Me (in worship) anything of which thou hast no knowledge obey them not. Ye have (all) to return to Me and I will tell you (the truth) of all that ye did. 3430 3431
9 And those who believe and work righteous deeds them shall We admit to the company of the Righteous. 3432
10 Then there are among men such as say "We believe in Allah"; but when they suffer affliction in (the cause of) Allah they treat men's oppression as if it were the Wrath of Allah! and if help comes (to thee) from thy Lord they are sure to say "We have (always) been with you!" Does not Allah know best all that is in the hearts of all Creation? 3433
11 And Allah most certainly knows those who believe and as certainly those who are Hypocrites. 3434
12 And the Unbelievers say to those who believe: "Follow our path and we will bear (the consequences) of your faults." Never in the least will they bear their faults: in fact they are liars! 3435
13 They will bear their own burdens and (other) burdens along with their own and on the Day of Judgement they will be called to account for their falsehoods. 3436
Nuh admonished his people not to commit shirk for 950 years Likewise, Ibrahim admonished his people not to commit shirk
14 We (once) sent Noah to his people and he tarried among them a thousand years less fifty: but the Deluge overwhelmed them while they (persisted in) sin. 3437
15 But We saved him and the Companions of the Ark and We made the (Ark) a Sign for all Peoples!
16 And (We also saved) Abraham: Behold he said to his people "Serve Allah and fear Him: that will be best for you if ye understand! 3438
17 "For ye do worship idols besides Allah and ye invent falsehood. The things that ye worship besides Allah have no power to give you sustenance: then seek ye sustenance from Allah serve Him and be grateful to Him: to Him will be your return. 3439
18 "And if ye reject (the Message) so did generations before you: and the duty of the apostle is only to preach publicly (and clearly)."
19 See they not how Allah originates creation then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah. 3440
20 Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation: so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things. 3441
21 "He punishes whom He pleases and He grants mercy to whom He pleases and towards Him are ye turned. 3442
22 "Not on earth nor in heaven will ye be able (fleeing) to frustrate (His plan) nor have ye besides Allah any protector or helper."
The people of Ibrahim even tried to burn him alive but Allah saved him and Lut (his nephew) is the only one who affirmed his belief with him
23 Those who reject the Signs of Allah and the Meeting with Him (in the Hereafter) it is they who shall despair of My mercy: it is they who will (suffer) a most grievous Penalty. 3443
24 So naught was the answer of (Abraham's) people except that they said: "Slay him or burn him." But Allah did save him from the fire: verily in this are Signs for people who believe. 3444
25 And He said: "For you ye have taken (for worship) idols besides Allah out of mutual love and regard between yourselves in this life; but on the Day of Judgement ye shall disown each other and curse each other: and your abode will be the Fire and ye shall have none to help. 3445
26 But Lut had faith in Him: he said: "I will leave home for the sake of my Lord: for He is Exalted in Might and Wise." 3446
27 And We gave (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob and ordained among his progeny Prophethood and Revelation and We granted him his reward in this life; and he was in the Hereafter (of the company) of the Righteous. 3447 3448
Lut was appointed as a Rasool towards the nation of homosexuals
28 And (remember) Lut; behold he said to his people: "Ye do commit lewdness such as no people in Creation (ever) committed before you. 3449
29 "Do ye indeed approach men and cut off the highway? And practice wickedness (even) in your councils?" But his people gave no answer but this: they said: "Bring us the Wrath of Allah if thou tellest the truth." 3450 3451
30 He said: "O my Lord! Help Thou me against people who do mischief!"
They rejected Allah's guidance; as a result Allah destroyed them all
31 When Our Messengers came to Abraham with the good news they said: "We are indeed going to destroy the people of this township: for truly they are (addicted to) crime." 3452 3453
32 He said: "But there is Lut there." They said: "Well do we know who is there: we will certainly save him and his following except his wife: she is of those who lag behind!" 3454
33 And when Our Messengers came to Lut he was grieved on their account and felt himself powerless (to protect) them: but they said "Fear thou not nor grieve: we are (here) to save thee and thy following except thy wife: she is of those who lag behind. 3455
34 "For we are going to bring down on the people of this township a Punishment from heaven because they have been wickedly rebellious." 3456
35 And We have left thereof an evident Sign for any people who (care to) understand. 3457
Likewise the Nations of 'Ad, Thamud, Madyan and Fir'on rejected the Rasools of Allah, which resulted in their destruction
36 To the Madyan (people) (We sent) their brother Shu`aib. Then he said: "O my people! serve Allah and fear the Last Day: nor commit evil on the earth with intent to do mischief."
37 But they rejected him: then the mighty Blast seized them and they lay prostrate in their homes by the morning. 3458
38 Remember also the `Ad and the Thamud (people): clearly will appear to you from (the traces) of their buildings (their fate): the Evil One made their deeds alluring to them and kept them back from the Path though they were gifted with Intelligence and Skill. 3459 3460
39 (Remember also) Qarun Pharaoh and Haman: there came to them Moses with Clear Signs but they behaved with insolence on the earth; yet they could not overreach (Us) . 3461
40 Each one of them We seized for his crime: of them against some We sent a violent tornado (with showers of stones); some were caught by a (mighty) Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up; and some We drowned (in the waters): it was not Allah Who injured (or oppressed) them: they injured (and oppressed) their own souls. 3462 3463 3464 3465
Parable of those who take protectors other than Allah
41 The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is that of the Spider who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the Spider's house if they but knew. 3466 3467
42 Verily Allah doth know of (everything) whatever that they call upon besides Him: and He is Exalted (in power) Wise. 3468
43 And such are the Parables We set for mankind but only those understand them who have Knowledge. 3469
44 Allah created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): verily in that is a Sign for those who believe. 3470
Salah keeps one away from the shameful deeds and Do not argue with the People of the Book except in good taste
45 Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee and establish Regular Prayer: for Prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds; and remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt. And Allah knows the (deeds) that ye do. 3471
46 And dispute ye not with the People of the Book except with means better (than mere disputation) unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say "We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam)." 3472 3473 3474
47 And thus (it is) that We have sent down the Book to thee. So the People of the Book believe therein as also do some of these (pagan Arabs): and none but Unbelievers reject Our Signs. 3475 3476 3477
48 And thou wast not (able) to recite a Book before this (Book came) nor art thou (able) to transcribe it with thy right hand: in that case indeed would the talkers of vanities have doubted. 3478
49 Nay here are Signs self-evident in the hearts of those endowed with knowledge: and none but the unjust reject Our Signs. 3479 3480
50 Yet they say: "Why are not Signs sent down to him from his Lord?" Say: "The Signs are indeed with Allah: and I am indeed a clear Warner." 3481
51 And is it not enough for them that We have sent down to thee the Book which is rehearsed to them? Verily in it is Mercy and Reminder to those who believe. 3482
Those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve Allah shall be the losers and How many creatures are there who do not carry their provisions with them ? Allah provides them as He provides you
52 Say: "Enough is Allah for a Witness between me and you: He knows what is in the heavens and on earth. And it is those who believe in vanities and reject Allah that will perish (in the end)." 3483 3484
53 They ask thee to hasten on the Punishment (for them): had it not been for a term (of respite) appointed the Punishment would certainly have come to them: and it will certainly reach them of a sudden while they perceive not! 3485
54 They ask thee to hasten on the Punishment but of a surety Hell will encompass the rejecters of Faith! 3486
55 On the Day that the Punishment shall cover them from above them and from below them and (a Voice) shall say: "Taste ye (the fruits) of your deeds!" 3487 3488
56 O My servants who believe! truly spacious is My Earth: therefore serve ye Me (and Me alone)! 3489
57 Every soul shall have a taste of death: in the end to Us shall ye be brought back. 3490
58 But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness to them shall We give a Home in Heaven lofty mansions beneath which flow rivers--to dwell therein for aye; an excellent reward for those who do (good)! 3491
59 Those who persevere in patience and put their trust in their Lord and Cherisher.
60 How many are the creatures that carry not their own sustenance? It is Allah Who feeds (both) them and you: for He hears and knows (all things). 3492
61 If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law); they will certainly reply "Allah." How are they then deluded away (from the truth)? 3493 3494
62 Allah enlarges the sustenance (which He gives) to whichever of His servants He pleases; and He (similarly) grants by (strict) measure (as He pleases): for Allah has full knowledge of all things. 3495
63 And if indeed thou ask them who it is that sends down rain from the sky and gives life therewith to the earth after its death they will certainly reply "Allah!" Say "Praise be to Allah!" But most of them understand not. 3496
The life of this world is nothing but a pastime, the real life is the life Hereafter and Those who strive in Our cause, We do guide them to Our Way
64 What is the life of this world but amusement and play? But verily the Home in the Hereafter that is life indeed if they but knew. 3497
65 Now if they embark on a boat they call on Allah making their devotion sincerely (and exclusively) to Him; but when He had delivered them safely to (dry) land Behold they give a share (of their worship to others)! 3498
66 Disdaining ungratefully Our gifts and giving themselves up to (worldly) enjoyment! But soon will they know. 3499
67 Do they not then see that We have made a Sanctuary secure and that men are being snatched away from all around them? Then do they believe in that which is vain and reject the Grace of Allah? 3500
68 And who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or rejects the Truth when it reaches Him? Is there not a home in Hell for those who reject Faith? 3501
69 And those who strive in Our (Cause) We will certainly guide them to Our Paths: for verily Allah is with those who do right. 3502 3503
