In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
The Hour is surely going to come and the Day of Judgement shall be established to reward the believers and punish those who discredit Allah's revelations
1 Praise be to Allah to Whom belong all things in the heavens and on earth: to Him be Praise in the Hereafter: and He is Full of Wisdom acquainted with all things. 3785
2 He knows all that goes into the earth and all that comes out thereof; all that comes down from the sky and all that ascends thereto: and He is the Most Merciful the Oft-Forgiving. 3786 3787
3 The Unbelievers say "Never to us will come the hour": say "Nay! but most surely by my Lord it will come upon you by Him Who knows the unseen from Whom is not hidden the least little atom in the Heavens or on earth: nor is there anything less than that or greater but is in the Record Perspicuous: 3788 3789 3790
4 That He may reward those who believe and work deeds of righteousness: for such is Forgiveness and a Sustenance Most Generous." 3791
5 But those who strive against Our Signs to frustrate them for such will be a Penalty a Punishment most humiliating. 3792
Those who do not believe in the Hereafter are doomed
6 And those to whom knowledge has come see that the (Revelation) sent down to thee from thy Lord that is the Truth and that it guides to the Path of the Exalted (in Might) Worthy of all praise. 3793
7 The Unbelievers say (in ridicule): "Shall we point out to you a man that will tell you when ye are all scattered to pieces in disintegration that ye shall (then be raised) in a New Creation? 3794
8 "Has he invented a falsehood against Allah or has a spirit (seized) him?" Nay it is those who believe not in the Hereafter that are in (real) Penalty and in farthest Error. 3795
9 See they not what is before them and behind them of the sky and the earth? If We wished We could cause the earth to swallow them up or cause a piece of the sky to fall upon them. Verily in this is a Sign for every devotee that turns to Allah (in repentance). 3796 3797 3798
Mountains and birds use to sing Allah's Rhymes with Prophet Dawood and Allah subjected the winds and Jinns to Prophet Sulaiman and Claim of people that Jinns know the unseen is wrong
10 We bestowed Grace aforetime on David from Ourselves: "O ye Mountains! sing ye back the Praises of Allah with him! and ye birds (also)! and We made the iron soft for Him 3799 3800
11 (Commanding) "Make thou coats of mail balancing well the rings of chain armor and work ye righteousness; for be sure I see (clearly) all that ye do." 3801 3802
12 And to Solomon (We made) the Wind (obedient): its early morning (stride) was a month's (journey) and its evening (stride) was a month's (journey); and We made a Font of molten brass to flow for him; and there were Jinns that worked in front of him by the leave of his Lord and if any of them turned aside from Our command We made Him taste of the Penalty of the Blazing Fire. 3803 3804 3805
13 They worked for him as he desired (making) Arches Images Basins as large as Reservoirs and (cooking) Cauldrons fixed (in their places): "Work ye sons of David with thanks! But few of My servants are grateful!" 3806 3807
14 Then when We decreed (Solomon's) death nothing showed them his death except a little worm of the earth which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his staff: so when he fell down the Jinns saw plainly that if they had known the unseen they would not have tarried in the humiliating Penalty (of their Task). 3808 3809
The people of Saba rejected Allah's blessings and disbelieved in the Hereafter so Allah made them merely a tale of the past
15 There was for Saba' aforetime a Sign in their homeland two Gardens to the right and to the left. Eat of the Sustenance (provided) by your Lord and be grateful to Him: a territory fair and happy and a Lord Oft-Forgiving! 3810 3811
16 But they turned away (from Allah) and We sent against them the flood (released) from the Dams and We converted their two Garden (rows) into "gardens" producing bitter fruit and tamarisks and some few (stunted) Lote trees. 3812 3813 3814
17 That was the Requital We gave them because they ungratefully rejected Faith: and never do We give (such) requital except to such as are ungrateful rejecters. 3815
18 Between them and the Cities on which We had poured Our blessings We had placed Cities in prominent positions and between them We had appointed stages of journey in due proportion: "Travel therein secure by night and by day." 3816
19 But they said: "Our Lord! place longer distances between our journey-stages." But they wronged themselves (therein). At length We made them as a tale (that is told) and We dispersed them all in scattered fragments. Verily in this are Signs for every (soul that is) patiently constant and grateful. 3817 3818 3819
20 And on them did Satan prove true his idea and they followed him all but a Party that believed. 3820
21 But he had no authority over them except that We might test the man who believes in the Hereafter from him who is in doubt concerning it: and thy Lord doth watch over all things. 3821
No intercession before Allah can avail any one except for whom He permits it and Prophet Muhammad is sent for the entire mankind
22 Say: "Call upon other (gods) whom ye fancy besides Allah: they have no power not the weight of an atom in the heavens or on earth; no (sort of) share have they therein nor is any of them a helper to Allah. 3822 3823
23 "No intercession can avail in His Presence except for those for whom He has granted permission. So far (is this the case) that when terror is removed from their hearts (at the Day of Judgement then) will they say `What is it that your Lord commanded?' They will say `That which is true and just; and He is the Most High Most Great.' " 3824 3825 3826
24 Say: "Who gives you sustenance from the heavens and the earth?" Say: "It is Allah and certain it is that either we or ye are on right guidance or in manifest error!" 3827 3828
25 Say: "Ye shall not be questioned as to our sins nor shall we be questioned as to what ye do." 3829
26 Say: "Our Lord will gather us together and will in the end decide the matter between us (and you) in truth and justice: and He is the One to decide the One Who knows all." 3830
27 Say: "Show me those whom ye have joined with Him as partners: by no means (can ye). Nay He is Allah the Exalted in Power the Wise." 3831
28 We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men giving them glad tidings and warning them (against sin) but most men understand not. 3832
29 They say: "When will this promise (come to pass) if ye are telling the truth?"
30 Say: "The appointment to you is for a day which ye cannot put back for an hour nor put forward." 3833
Those who disbelieve in AL-Quran and prior scriptures will be subjected to yokes around their necks before tossing them into Hell and Wealth and children are not the indications of Allah's pleasure
31 The Unbelievers say: "We shall neither believe in this scripture nor in (any) that (came) before it." Couldst thou but see when the wrong-doers will be made to stand before their Lord throwing back the word (of blame) on one another! Those who had been despised will say to the arrogant ones: "Had it not been for you we should certainly have been believers!" 3834 3835 3836
32 The arrogant ones will say to those who had been despised: "Was it we who kept you back from Guidance after it reached you? Nay rather it was ye who transgressed." 3837
33 Those who had been despised will say to the arrogant ones: "Nay! it was a plot (of yours) by day and by night. Behold! ye (constantly) ordered us to be ungrateful to Allah and to attribute equals to Him!" They will declare (their) repentance when they see the Penalty: We shall put yokes on the necks of the Unbelievers: it would only be a requital for their (ill) deeds. 3838 3839 3840
34 Never did We send a Warner to a population but the wealthy ones among them said: "We believe not in the (message) with which ye have been sent." 3841
35 They said: "We have more in wealth and in sons and we cannot be punished." 3842
36 Say: "Verily my Lord enlarges and restricts the provision to whom He pleases but most men understand not." 3843
It is belief that brings you close to Allah not the wealth or children and Whatever you spend in charity, Allah will pay you back and Unbeliever's statements about the Prophet and AL-Quran
37 It is not your wealth nor your sons that will bring you nearer to Us in degree: but only those who believe and work Righteousness these are the ones for whom there is a multiplied Reward for their deeds while secure they (reside) in the dwellings on high! 3844 3845 3846
38 Those who strive against Our Signs to frustrate them will be given over into Punishment. 3847
39 Say: "Verily my Lord enlarges and restricts the Sustenance to such of His servants as He pleases: and nothing do ye spend in the least (in his cause) but He replaces it: for He is the Best of those Who grant Sustenance. 3848 3849
40 One day He will gather them all together and say to the angels "Was it you that these men used to worship?" 3850
41 They will say "Glory to thee! Our (tie) is with thee as Protector not with them. Nay but they worshipped the Jinns: most of them believed in them." 3851 3852
42 So on that day no power shall they have over each other for profit or harm: and We shall say to the wrong-doers "Taste ye the penalty of the Fire the which ye were wont to deny!" 3853
43 When Our Clear Signs are rehearsed to them they say "This is only a man who wishes to hinder you from the (worship) which your fathers practiced." And they say "This is only a falsehood invented!" And the Unbelievers say of the Truth when it comes to them "This is nothing but evident magic!" 3854
44 But We had not given them Books which they could study nor sent apostles to them before thee as Warners. 3855
45 And their predecessors rejected (the Truth); these have not received a tenth of what We had granted to those: yet when they rejected My apostles how (terrible) was My rejection (of them)! 3856
Unbelievers are asked to ponder upon their wrong statements and Truth has come, falsehood neither originates nor restores anything
46 Say: "I do admonish you on one point: that ye do stand up before Allah--(it may be) in pairs or (it may be) singly and reflect (within yourselves): your Companion is not possessed: he is no less than a Warner to you in face of a terrible Penalty." 3857 3858
47 Say: "No reward do I ask of you: it is (all) in your interest: my reward is only due from Allah: and He is Witness to all things." 3859
48 Say: "Verily my Lord doth cast the (mantle of) Truth (over His servants) He that has full knowledge of (all) that is hidden." 3860
49 Say: "The Truth has arrived and Falsehood neither creates anything new nor restores anything." 3861
50 Say: "If I am astray I only stray to the loss of my own soul: but if I receive guidance it is because of the inspiration of my Lord to me: it is He Who hears all things and is (ever) near." 3862
On the Day of Judgement unbelievers would like to believe but it will be of no avail to them
51 If thou couldst but see when they will quake with terror: but then there will be no escape (for them) and they will be seized from a position (quite) near. 3863
52 And they will say "We do believe (now) in the (truth)": but how could they receive (faith) from a position (so) far off 3864
53 Seeing that they did reject faith (entirely) before and that they (continually) cast (slanders) on the Unseen from a position far off? 3865
54 And between them and their desires is placed a barrier as was done in the past with their partisans: for they were indeed in suspicious (disquieting) doubt. 3866 3867 3868
