This Book is revealed from Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
Surely in the heavens and the earth there are signs for the true believers.
and in your own creation and that of animals which are scattered through the earth, there are signs for those who are firm in faith,
and in the alternation of night and day, in the sustenance that Allah sends down from heaven with which He revives the earth after its death and in the changing of the winds, there are signs for those who use their common sense.
These are the revelations of Allah, which We are reciting to you in all truth. Then, in what report will they believe if not Allah and His revelations?
Woe to each lying sinner
before whom the revelations of Allah are recited: he hears them, yet he arrogantly persists as though he never heard them; announce to him a painful punishment.
And when something of Our revelations come to his knowledge, he takes them as a joke; for all such people there will be a humiliating punishment.
Beyond them there lies hell, and nothing of what they have earned in this world will be of any benefit to them, nor those whom they have taken as their protectors besides Allah, and they shall have grievous punishment.
This Qur'an is the true Guidance. As for those who deny the revelations of their Rabb, there will be a terribly painful punishment.
It is Allah Who has subjected the sea to you, so that ships may sail upon it by His command, and that you may seek His bounty and be grateful to Him.
He also subjected to you whatever is between the heavens and the earth; all from Himself. Surely there are signs in this for those who think.
O Prophet, tell the believers to bear with those who do not fear the coming of the bad days from Allah, so that He may Himself recompense those people according to what they have earned.
He that does a righteous deed, does it for his own good; and he that commits evil, does so at his own peril. In the end, you all will be brought back to your Rabb.
We gave the Book to the Children of Israel and bestowed on them rulership and Prophethood. We provided them with good thing of life, exalted them above the nations,
and gave them clear instructions relating to the matters of religion through revealing to them the Torah. Then they differed among themselves, not because of ignorance but, after the knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. Surely your Rabb will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning the matters in which they have set up differences.
O Prophet, We have put you on the Right Way (Shari'ah) concerning the religion, so follow it, and do not yield to the desires of ignorant people;
for they can in no way protect you against Allah. In fact, the wrongdoers are protectors of one another, while the protector of the righteous is Allah Himself.
These (the Qur'an and Shari'ah) are the eye openers for mankind; a guidance and a blessing to the true believers.
Do the evil doers think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe and do good deeds, and that their lives and deaths shall be alike? Bad is their judgment!
Allah has created the heavens and the earth to manifest the truth, and to reward each soul according to its deeds, and none of them shall be wronged.
Have you considered the case of such an individual who has made his own desires as his god, and Allah having knowledge let him go astray, and sealed his hearing and heart and drew a veil over his sight? Who is there to guide him after Allah has withdrawn His guidance? Will you not learn a lesson?
The disbelievers say: "There is nothing but the life of this world? We live and die; nothing but time destroys us." In fact, they have no knowledge concerning this. They are merely guessing.
When Our clear revelations are recited to them, they have no other argument but to say: "Bring our forefathers back if what you say is true!"
O Prophet tell them: "It is Allah Who gives you life and later causes you to die; then it is He Who will gather you all on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt, yet most people do not understand."
To Allah belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth. On that Day when the Hour of Judgment will be established, those who have denied His revelations shall be doomed to loss.
You shall see every nation on its knees. Every nation shall be summoned to its book of record, and Allah will say: "Today you shall be rewarded for your deeds.
This book of Ours speaks about you with the truth. Surely We have recorded all your deeds."
As for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Rabb will admit them into His mercy. That will be a glorious achievement.
But as to those who disbelieved, Allah will say: "Were My revelations not recited to you? But you showed arrogance and became a people of criminals".
When it was said, "the promise of Allah is true and the Hour of Judgement is sure to come. You used to say, `We don't know what the Hour of Judgement is: we think it is just a conjecture, we are not convinced.'"
Then the evil of their deeds will become manifest to them, and they will be completely encircled by that which they used to mock at.
It will be said: "Today We will forget you as you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours! Hellfire will be your home and none will be there to help you.
This is because you used to take Allah's revelations as a joke and you let the worldly life deceive you." Therefore, on this Day neither they shall be taken out of hell, nor shall they be given a chance for amending their ways to please their Rabb.
So, praise be to Allah, the Rabb of the heavens, the Rabb of the earth and the Rabb of the worlds.
To Him belongs greatness throughout the heavens and the earth, and He Alone is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
