Revealed At Mecca, Verses: 34 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. Alif Lam Mim (A.L.M.).(1)
  2. These are the signs of the wise Book,(2)
  3. for a guidance and a mercy to the good-doers,(3)
  4. those who establish the Prayer, pay the due__alms, and who have sure faith in the Hereafter.(4)
  5. Those are upon guidance from their Lord, and those are the ones who shall prosper.(5)
  6. And among men is he who takes up a funny story to lead astray from God's way without any he knowledge, and takes it in mockery; for them there shall be a disgraceful punishment.(6)
  7. And when Our signs are recited to him, he turns away in arrogance, as if he did not hear them, as if there was heaviness in his ears; so give him a good news of a painful punishment.(7)
  8. Surely those, who believe and do righteous deeds, shall have gardens of bliss,(8)
  9. to dwell therein forever; it is God's promise in truth: and He is the Mighty, the Wise.(9)
  10. He created the heavens without pillars that you can see, and He cast firm mountains in the earth, lest it should shake with you, and He spread in it all types of creatures. And We sent down water from heaven, then caused to grow therein of every fine kind.(10)
  11. This is God's creation, now show me what those, that are apart from Him, have created. No, but the wrongdoers are clearly astray.(11)
  12. And We gave Lokman wisdom: `be grateful to God; and whoso is grateful, is grateful only for himself; and if any is ungrateful, then God is Self-sufficient, Praiseworthy.'(12)
  13. And when Lokman said to his son admonishing him, `O my son, do not assign associates to God; surely assigning of associates is a mighty wrong.' (13)
  14. And We have charged man concerning his parents __ his mother bears him in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years __ `Be thankful to Me and to thy parents; to Me is the destination.'(14)
  15. But if they strive with thee that thou shouldst make associates with Me, of which thou hast no knowledge, then do not obey them, but keep them company desirably in this world, and follow the way of him who turns to Me; then unto Me you shall return, and I shall tell you what you were doing.'(15)
  16. `O my son, if it should be the weight of a grain of mustard seed, and it should be in a rock or in the heavens or in the earth, God shall bring it forth; God is Subtle, Aware.(16)
  17. O my son, establish the Prayer, bid the desirable, forbid the disgusting, and bear patiently what befalls thee; surely that is a matter of great resolution.(17)
  18. And do not turn thy cheek away from men in scorn, nor walk on the earth exultantly; God does not like any proud, boastful man.(18)
  19. And be modest in thy walk, and keep thy voice low; surely the most repulsive of voices is the voice of the ass.'(19)
  20. Have you not seen that God has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and He has lavished on you His blessings, both open and hidden; yet there are men who dispute concerning God without any knowledge, or guidance, or an illuminating Book.(20)
  21. And when it is said to them, `follow what God has sent down', they say, `no, but we shall follow what we found our fathers on.' What! Even though the Devil was calling them to the punishment of the burning.(21)
  22. And whoso submits himself to God, and he is a good-doer, has laid hold of the most firm handle; and unto God is the end of all matters.(22)
  23. And whoso disbelieves, let not his unbelief grieve thee; to Us shall they return, then We will tell them what they did; surely God knows the thoughts in the breasts.(23)
  24. We shall let them enjoy a little, then compel them to a harsh punishment.(24)
  25. And if thou askest them, `who created the heavens and the earth,' they will surely say, `God'. Say, `praise be to God'. No, but most of them have no knowledge.(25)
  26. To God belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth; surely God __ He is the All-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.(26)
  27. And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven seas thereafter to replenish it (were ink), the Words of God would not be spent; surely God is Mighty, Wise.(27)
  28. Your creation and your upraising are not but as one soul; surely God is Hearing, Seeing.(28)
  29. Hast thou not seen that God makes the night to enter into the day, and makes the day to enter into the night, and has subjected the sun and the moon, all running to a stated term, and that God is aware of what you do?(29)
  30. That is because God is the Truth, and what they call, apart from Him, is false-hood, and that God is the High, the Great.(30)
  31. Hast thou not seen that the ships sail on the sea by God's blessing, that He may show you of His Signs? In that are surely Signs for every steadfast, thankful man.(31)
  32. And when the waves cover them like shadows, they call upon God, making obedience purely His; but when He delivers them to the land, then among them some are lukewarm. And none denies Our Signs except every treacherous, unthankful man.(32)
  33. O mankind, fear your Lord, and dread a day when a father shall not give satisfaction for his child, nor a child shall give satisfaction for his father in the least; God's promise is true, so let not the present life delude you, and let not the Deluder delude you concerning God.(33)
  34. Surely God __ with Him is the knowledge of the Hour; and He sends down the rain; and He knows what is in the wombs; and no soul knows what it shall earn tomorrow, and no soul knows in what land it shall die; surely God is Knowing, Aware.(34)
