Revealed at Mecca Verses: 37 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful

  1. Ha Mim (H.M.). (1)
  2. The sending down of the Book is from God, the Mighty, the Wise.(2)
  3. Surely in the heavens and the earth there are Signs for the Believers.(3)
  4. And in your creation and the creatures that He scatters, there are Signs for a people who have faith.(4)
  5. And in the alternation of night and day, and the provision that God sends down from the heaven wherewith He revives the earth after it is dead and the turning about of winds, there are Signs for a people who understand.(5)
  6. Those are the Signs of God that We recite to thee with truth; in what discourse, after God and His Signs, will they believe?(6)
  7. Woe to every impostor, sinner,(7)
  8. who hears the Signs of God recited to him, yet persists in arrogance, as if he has not heard them; so give him good news of a painful punishment.(8)
  9. And when he learns anything of Our Signs, he takes them in mockery; those shall have a humiliating punishment.(9)
  10. Beyond them is Hell; and what they earned shall not avail them in the least, nor those whom they took as protectors apart from God; and for them shall be a big punishment.(10)
  11. This is a guidance; and those who disbelieve in the Signs of their Lord, shall have a painful punishment of scourge.(11)
  12. God is He who has subjected to you the sea, that the ships may sail on it by His command, and that you may seek His bounty, and you might be thankful.(12)
  13. And He has subjected to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, all from Him; in that are surely Signs for a people who ponder.(13)
  14. Say to the Believers to forgive those who do not look for the days of God, that He may recompense a people for what they were earning.(14)
  15. Whoso does righteousness, it is for himself, and whoso does evil, it is against him; then to your Lord you will be returned.(15)
  16. And We gave the Children of Israel the Book, the Judgement, and the Prophethood, and We provided them with good things, and We exalted them over all people.(16)
  17. And We gave them Clear Signs of the Affair and they differed not, but after the knowledge had come to them, aggressing against one another; surely thy Lord shall decide between them on the Day of Resurrection in what they differed.(17)
  18. Then We put thee on an open way of the Affair, so follow it, and follow not the caprices of those who have no knowledge.(18)
  19. They shall not avail thee against God in the least; and surely the wrong-doers are the friends of one another; and God is the friend of the godfearing.(19)
  20. These are clear evidences for men, and a guidance and a mercy for a people who have firm faith.(20)
  21. Or do those who commit evil deeds think that We shall make them as those who believe and do righteous deeds __ their living and their dying equal? How ill they judge!(21)
  22. And God has created the heavens and the earth with truth, and that every soul may be recompensed for what it earned, and they are not wronged.(22)
  23. Hast thou seen him who has taken his caprice to be his god, and God has led him astray, in spite of knowledge, and has set a seal upon his ears and his heart, and has laid a covering on his eyes? Now who shall guide him after God? Will you not then pay heed?(23)
  24. And they say, `it is only our present life that we die and live, and nothing but Time destroys us; but they have no knowledge of that; they only conjecture.(24)
  25. And when Our Clear Signs are recited to them, their only argument is that they say, `bring our fathers, if you are truthful.'(25)
  26. Say, `God gives you life, then makes you to die, then He shall gather you to the Day of Resurrection, whereof is no doubt, but most men do not know.'(26)
  27. And to God belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and on the day when the Hour comes, that day the vain-doers shall lose.(27)
  28. And thou shalt see every community on the knees, every community shall be called to its Book. -Today you shall be recompensed for what you were doing.(28)
  29. This is Our Book that speaks against you with truth; and We have been recording what you were doing.'(29)
  30. Now as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord shall admit them to His mercy; that is the clear triumph.(30)
  31. And as for those who disbelieved; __ `were not My Signs recited to you, but you showed arrogance and you were a sinful people?'(31)
  32. And when it was said, `God's promise is true, and there is no doubt in the Hour', you said, `we do not know what the Hour is; we think it only a surmise, and we are not at all certain.'(32)
  33. And the evils of what they did shall appear to them, and what they used to mock at shall encompass them.(33)
  34. And it shall be said, `today We forget you as you forgot the meeting of this day of yours, and your resort is the Fire, and you have no helpers.(34)
  35. That is because you took God's Signs in mockery, and the worldly life deluded you'. So to-day they shall not be brought out of it, nor shall they be permitted to make amends.(35)
  36. So to God belongs the praise, the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the whole world.(36)
  37. And His is the domination in the heavens and the earth, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.(37)
