Revealed At Mecca, Verses: 30 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. Alif Lam Mim (A.L.M.).(1)
  2. The sending down of the Book, no doubt about it, is from the Lord of the world.(2)
  3. Or do they say, `he has forged it?' No, it is the Truth from thy Lord, that thou mayest warn a people to whom no warner came before thee, that they may be guided.(3)
  4. God is He who created the heavens and the earth and what between them is in six days, then took over the Throne. You have no protector apart from Him, nor a mediator; so will you not take heed?(4)
  5. He directs the Affair from the heaven to the earth, then it goes up to Him in a day whose measure is a thousand years of your counting.(5)
  6. That is the Knower of the unseen and the visible, the Mighty, the Merciful,(6)
  7. who made everything that He created handsome, and began the creation of man out of clay.(7)
  8. Then He made his progeny of an extraction of a mean water;(8)
  9. then He shaped him, and breathed in him of His Spirit, and made for you ears, eyes, and heart; little thanks you show.(9)
  10. And they say, `when we are lost in the earth, shall we be in a new creation?' No, they disbelieve in the meeting with their Lord.(10)
  11. Say, `the Angel of Death, who has been charged with you, will cause you to die, then you will be returned to your Lord.'(11)
  12. And if thou clouldst see the sinners hanging their heads before their Lord: `Our Lord, we have seen and heard; now return us that we may do righteousness, for we have sure faith.'(12)
  13. And if We had willed, We could have given every soul its guidance, but My Word has proved true that I will certainly fill up Hell with jinn and men all together.(13)
  14. `Now taste, for you forgot the meeting of this your day; We have also forgotten you; and taste the punishment of eternity for that you have been doing!'(14)
  15. Only those believe in Our Signs who, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate and celebrate the praise of their Lord, and they do not show arrogance.(15)
  16. Their sides forsake the beds, calling on their Lord in fear and hope, and they expend of that We have provided them.(16)
  17. And no soul knows what coolness of eyes is secretly kept for them, as a recompense for that they have been doing.(17)
  18. Is he who was a believer like him who was a transgressor? They are not equal.(18)
  19. As for those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them shall be gardens of eternal abode, as a hospitality for what they have been doing.(19)
  20. And as for those who transgressed, their abode shall be the Fire; whenever they desire to come out of it, they shall be restored into it, and it shall be said to them, `taste the punishment of the Fire which you have been giving lies to.'(20)
  21. And We shall surely make them taste some smaller punishment, besides the greater punishment, that they may return.(21)
  22. And who does greater wrong than he, who is reminded of the Signs of his Lord, then turns away from them? We will surely take vengeance upon the sinners.(22)
  23. And We gave Moses the Book, so be thou not in doubt of receiving it, and We made it a guidance for the Children of Israel;(23)
  24. and We appointed among them leaders to guide by Our command, when they showed patience; and they had sure faith in Our Signs.(24)
  25. Surely it is thy Lord who shall decide between them on the Day of Resurrection in what they differed.(25)
  26. Is it not a guidance to them, how many generations We destroyed before them in whose dwellings they walk? In that are surely Signs; so will they not hear?(26)
  27. And do they not see that We drive water to the barren land, and therewith bring forth crops, which their cattle and themselves eat? So will they not see?(27)
  28. And they say, `when shall be this Decision, if you are truthful?'(28)
  29. Say, `on the Day of Decision, their faith shall not profit the unbelievers, nor shall they be respited.'(29)
  30. So, turn thou away from them, and wait; they too are waiting.(30)
