In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
1. Whatsoever is
in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies Allah.
His is the dominion, and to Him belong all the praises and thanks,
and He is Able to do all things.
2. He it is Who created
you, then some of you are disbelievers and some of you are believers.
And Allah is All-Seer of what you do.
3. He has created
the heavens and the earth with truth, and He shaped you and made
good your shapes, and to Him is the final Return.
4. He knows what
is in the heavens and on earth, and He knows what you conceal
and what you reveal. And Allah is the All-Knower of what
is in the breasts (of men).
5. Has not the news
reached you of those who disbelieved aforetime? And so they tasted
the evil result of their disbelief, and theirs will be a painful
6. That was because
there came to them their Messengers with clear proofs (signs),
but they said: "Shall mere men guide us?" So they disbelieved
and turned away (from the truth), and Allah was not in need
(of them). And Allah is Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy
of all praise.
7. The disbelievers
pretend that they will never be resurrected (for the Account).
Say (O Muhammad ):
"Yes! By my Lord, you will certainly be resurrected, then
you will be informed of (and recompensed for) what you did, and
that is easy for Allah.
8. Therefore, believe
in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and in the Light (this Qur'an)
which We have sent down. And Allah is All-Aware of what
9. (And remember)
the Day when He will gather you (all) on the Day of Gathering,
that will be the Day of mutual loss and gain (i.e. loss for the
disbelievers as they will enter the Hell-fire and gain for the
believers as they will enter Paradise). And whosoever believes
in Allah and performs righteous good deeds, He will remit
from him his sins, and will admit him to Gardens under which rivers
flow (Paradise) to dwell therein forever, that will be the great
10. But those who
disbelieved (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism)
and denied Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons,
signs, revelations, etc.), they will be the dwellers of the Fire,
to dwell therein forever. And worst indeed is that destination.
11. No calamity befalls,
but with the Leave [i.e. decision and Qadar (Divine Preordainments)]
of Allah, and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides
his heart [to the true Faith with certainty, i.e. what has befallen
him was already written for him by Allah from the Qadar
(Divine Preordainments)], and Allah is the All-Knower
12. Obey Allah,
and obey the Messenger (Muhammad ),
but if you turn away, then the duty of Our Messenger is only to
convey (the Message) clearly.
La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be
worshipped but He), and in Allah (Alone), therefore, let
the believers put their trust.
14. O you who believe!
Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for
you (i.e. may stop you from the obedience of Allah), therefore
beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive
(their faults), then verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most
15. Your wealth and
your children are only a trial, whereas Allah! With Him
is a great reward (Paradise).
16. So keep your
duty to Allah and fear Him as much as you can; listen and
obey; and spend in charity, that is better for yourselves. And
whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, then they are the
17. If you lend to
Allah a goodly loan (i.e. spend in Allah's Cause)
He will double it for you, and will forgive you. And Allah
is Most Ready to appreciate and to reward, Most Forbearing,
18. All-Knower of
the unseen and seen, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
