1 Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion: and He over all things Hath Power 5554 5555
2 He Who created Death and Life that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might Oft-Forgiving 5556 5557 5558
3 He Who created the seven heavens one above another; no want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (Allah) Most Gracious so turn thy vision again: Seest thou any flaw? 5559
4 Again turn thy vision a second time; (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited in a state worn out. 5560
5 And We have (from of old) adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire. 5561 5562
6 For those who reject their Lord (and Cherisher) is the Penalty of Hell: and evil is (such) destination. 5563
7 When they are cast therein they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath even as it blazes forth. 5564
8 Almost bursting with fury: every time a Group is cast therein its Keepers will ask "Did no Warner come to you?" 5565
9 They will say: "Yes indeed: a Warner did come to us but we rejected him and said `Allah never sent down any (Message): ye are in nothing but an egregious delusion!' " 5566
10 They will further say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!" 5567
11 They will then confess their sins: but far will be (Forgiveness) from the Companions of the Blazing Fire! 5568
12 As for those who fear their Lord unseen for them is Forgiveness and a great Reward. 5569
13 And whether ye hide your word or publish it He certainly has (full) knowledge of the secrets of (all) hearts.
14 Should He not know He that created? And He is the One that understands the finest mysteries (and) is well-acquainted (with them). 5570
15 It is He Who has made the earth manageable for you so traverse ye through its tracts and enjoy of the Sustenance which He furnishes: but unto Him is the Resurrection. 5571 5572
16 Do ye feel secure that He Who is in heaven will not cause you to be swallowed up by the earth when it shakes (as in an earthquake)? 5573
17 Or do ye feel secure that He Who is in Heaven will not send against you a violent tornado (with showers of stones) so that ye shall know how (terrible) was My warning? 5574
18 But indeed men before them rejected (My warning): then how (terrible) was My rejection (of them)? 5575
19 Do they not observe the birds above them spreading their wings and folding them in? None can uphold them except (Allah) Most Gracious: truly it is He that watches over all things. 5576 5577
20 Nay who is there that can help you (even as) an army besides (Allah) Most Merciful? In nothing but delusion are the Unbelievers. 5578
21 Or who is there that can provide you with Sustenance if He were to withhold His provision? Nay they obstinately persist in insolent impiety and flight (from the Truth). 5579
22 Is then one who walks headlong with his face grovelling better guided or one who walks evenly on a Straight Way? 5580 5581
23 Say: "It is He Who has created you (and made you grow) and made for you the faculties of hearing seeing feeling and understanding: little thanks it is ye give." 5582 5583
24 Say: "It is He Who has multiplied you through the earth and to Him shall ye be gathered together." 5584
25 They ask: When will this promise be (fulfilled)? If ye are telling the truth. 5585
26 Say: "As to the knowledge of the time it is with Allah alone: I am (sent) only to warn plainly in public." 5586
27 At length when they see it close at hand grieved will be the faces of the Unbelievers and it will be said (to them): "This is (the promise fulfilled) which ye were calling for!" 5587 5588
28 Say: "See ye? If Allah were to destroy me and those with me or if He bestows His Mercy on us yet who can deliver the Unbelievers from a grievous Penalty?" 5589
29 Say: "He is (Allah) Most Gracious: we have believed in Him and on Him have we put our trust: so soon will ye know which (of us) it is that is in manifest error." 5590
30 Say: "See ye? If your stream be some morning lost (in the underground earth) who then can supply you with clear-flowing water?" 5591
