The Originator

Revealed At Mecca, Verses: 45 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. Praise be to God, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, who appoints the angels, as messengers, having wings, two, three and four. He adds to creation as He will; surely God is powerful over everything.(1)
  2. Whatever mercy God opens to mankind, there is none to withhold it, and whatever He withholds, there is none to release it after Him; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.(2)
  3. O mankind, remember God's blessing upon you. Is there any creator, other than God, who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? There is no god but He; how are you then perverted?(3)
  4. And if they give lies to thee, then Messengers before thee were also given lies to; and to God are all matters returned.(4)
  5. O mankind, God's promise is true, so let not the present life delude you, and let not the Deluder delude you regarding God.(5)
  6. Surely the Devil is an enemy to you, so take him as an enemy; he calls his faction only, that they may be among the people of the Blaze.(6)
  7. Those who disbelieve, for them shall be a terrible punishment. And those who believe and do righteous deeds, for them shall be forgiveness and a big wage.(7)
  8. And what of him, whom the evil of his deeds is adorned so that he sees it handsome? But God sends astray whom he will, and guides whom He will; so let not thy soul pass away in regrets for them; surley God knows what they work.(8)
  9. And God is He who looses the winds, and they stir up a cloud, then We drive it to a dead land, and, with it, revive the earth, after it is dead __ thus is the Uprising.(9)
  10. If any desires glory, then glory belongs to God altogether; to Him good words go up, and He uplifts the righteous deeds. And those who devise evil deeds for them shall be a terrible punishment; and their device is a thing to perish.(10)
  11. And God created you of dust, then of a sperm-drop, then He made you pairs. And no female bears nor lays down, but it is in His knowledge. And none, who is given a long life, lives long, nor anything is diminished in his life, but it is in a Book; surely that is easy for God.(11)
  12. And the two seas are not equal; this is sweet, fresh, to pleasant drink, and that is bitter salt; yet from each, you eat fresh flesh, and bring forth ornaments that you wear; and thou seest the ships ploughing through it, that you may seek of His bounty, and perhaps you will be thankful.(12)
  13. He makes the night to enter into the day and makes the day to enter into the night, and He has subjected the sun and the moon, each running to a stated term. That is God, your Lord, to whom belongs the kingdom; and those whom you call upon, apart from Him, do not possess even the skin of a date-stone.(13)
  14. If you call upon them, they do not hear your call; and if they heard, they would not answer you; and, on the Day of Resurrection, they will deny your associating (them with God); and none will tell thee like the One Aware. (14)
  15. O mankind, you are poor before God, and God __ He is the All-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.(15)
  16. If He will, He will take you away and bring a new creation;(16)
  17. and that is no great matter for God.(17)
  18. And no bearer of load bears the load of another; and if one heavily burdened calls for its load to be carried, not a thing of it will be carried, though he be a near kinsman. Thou warnest only those who fear their Lord, without seeing, and establish the Prayer; and whoso purifies himself, purifies himself for his own good; and to God is the destination.(18)
  19. And the blind and the seeing man are not equal,(19)
  20. nor the darkness and the light,(20)
  21. nor the shade and the torrid heat;(21)
  22. and the living and the dead are not equal; God makes to hear whom he will; and thou shalt not make to hear those who are in the tombs.(22)
  23. Thou art not but a warner.(23)
  24. Surely We have sent thee with the truth, as a bearer of good news and as a warner; and there is no community but a warner has gone among them.(24)
  25. And if they give thee lies, then those before them gave lies too; their Messengers came to them with the Clear Signs, and the Psalms, and the illuminating Book.(25)
  26. Then I seized the unbelievers, so how was My denial!(26)
  27. Hast thou not seen that God sends down water from heaven, and therewith We bring forth fruits of different hues; and in the mountains are streaks, white and red, of different hues and pitch black?(27)
  28. And men, animals and cattle are similarly of different hues; yet among His servants only the men of knowledge fear God; surely God is Mighty, Forgiving.(28)
  29. Those who recite the Book of God, and establish the Prayer, and expend of that We have provided them, secretly and openly, look for a commerce that will never perish,(29)
  30. that He may pay them in full their wages and increase for them out of His bounty; He is Forgiving, Thankful.(30)
  31. And that We have revealed to thee of the Book is the truth, confirming what is before it; God is surely aware of and sees His servants.(31)
  32. Then, We bequeathed the Book on those of Our servants whom We chose; now among them is he who wrongs himself, and among them is the lukewarm, and among them is the outstripper in good works, by the leave of God __ that indeed is the great bounty.(32)
  33. They shall enter Gardens of Eternity, wherein they shall be adorned with bracelets of gold and with pearls, and their dress therein shall be of silk.(33)
  34. And they shall say, `praise be to God, who has taken away all grief from us; surely our Lord is Forgiving, Thankful,(34)
  35. who, out of His bounty, has made us to dwell in the Home of Eternity, wherein no toil touches us, nor fatigue.(35)
  36. And the unbelievers, theirs shall be the Fire of Hell; they shall neither be done with to die, nor its punishment shall be lightened for them; thus We recompense every ungrateful one.(36)
  37. And they shall cry out there, `our Lord, take us out, and we will do righteousness, other than that we have been doing' __ `What! did We not give you life, long enough to pay heed for him who would pay heed, and the warner also came to you? Now taste, and there is no helper for the wrongdoers?'(37)
  38. God knows the unseen of the heavens and the earth; He knows the thoughts in the breasts.(38)
  39. It is He who made you viceroys in the earth; then whoso disbelieves, his unbelief shall stand against him; and their unbelief increases nothing for the unbelievers but hatred with God, and their unbelief increases nothing for the unbelievers but loss.(39)
  40. Say, `have you seen your associate-gods, whom you call upon, apart from God? Show me what they have created in the earth, or have they any partnership in the heavens; or have We given them a Book so that they are on a Clear Sign from it?' No, but the wrong-doers promise one another nothing but delusion.(40)
  41. God holds the heavens and the earth, lest they move away; and if they moved, none would hold them after Him; surely He is Penitent, Forgiving.(41)
  42. And they swore by God their most earnest oaths that if a warner came to them, they would be more guided than any one of the communities; but when a warner came to them, it increased them in aversion only __(42)
  43. showing arrogance in the earth and devising evil; but the evil device encompasses none except its own people. Now are they waiting only for the tradition of the ancients? And thou shalt never find any change in God's tradition, and thou shalt never find any alteration in God's tradition.(43)
  44. And have they not journeyed in the land and beheld how was the end of those before them, though they were stronger than them in might? And God is not such that anything in the heavens or in the earth can frustrate Him; surely He is Knowing, Powerful.(44)
  45. And if God were to take men to task for what they have earned, He would not leave on the surface (of earth) any creature; but He is deferring them to a stated term; and when their term is come __ then surely God sees His servants.(45)
