Revealed at Medina, Verses: 29 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. All that is in the heavens and the earth extols God; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.(1)
  2. His is the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth; He gives life and makes to die; and He is powerful over everything.(2)
  3. He is the First and the Last, the Manifest and the Hidden, and He has knowledge of everything.(3)
  4. It is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then took over the Throne; He knows what enters into the earth and what comes out of it; what comes down from heaven and what goes up into it; He is with you wherever you may be; and God sees what you do.(4)
  5. His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and to Him all matters are returned.(5)
  6. He makes the night to enter into the day, and makes the day to enter into the night; and He knows the thoughts in the breasts.(6)
  7. Have faith in God and His Messenger, and expend of that to which He has made you heirs. And those of you who have faith and expend shall have a mighty wage.(7)
  8. And how is it with you, that you do not have faith in God, when the Messenger calls you to have faith in your Lord, and He has indeed taken compact with you, if you are Believers?(8)
  9. It is He who sends down upon His Servant clear signs that he may take you out of darkness into the light; and God is surely Kind and Merciful to you.(9)
  10. And how is it with you, that you do not expend in the way of God, when to God belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Not equal are those among you who expended and fought before the victory; those are greater in rank than those who expended and fought afterwards. And to all God has promised the best reward; and God is aware of what you do.(10)
  11. Who is he that will lend to God a good loan, then He will multiply it for him, and for him shall be a generous wage.(11)
  12. On the day when thou seest the Believers, men and women, their light running before them and on their right: `Good news for you today __ gardens underneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever; that is the mighty triumph'.(12)
  13. On the day when the hypocrites, men and women, shall say to the Believers, `wait for us that we may borrow from you some light;' it will be said, `return to your rear and seek for a light.' And there shall be set up between them a wall having a door; on its inside shall be mercy, and along its outer side punishment.(13)
  14. They shall call on them, `were we not with you?' They shall say, `yes, but you tempted yourselves, and waited, and doubted, and fancies deluded you, and the Deluder deluded you about God, until God's command came.(14)
  15. So today, no ransom shall be taken from you, nor from the unbelievers; your abode is the Fire; that is your comrade; and it is an evil destination!'(15)
  16. Has not the time for the Believers come that their hearts should be humbled to the Remembrance of God and to the Truth that He has sent down, and that they should not be like those who were given the Book before, then the term became long over them, so their hearts became hard; and many of them are transgressors?(16)
  17. Know that it is God who revives the earth after it is dead. We have explained the Signs for you that you might understand.(17)
  18. Those men and women who make offerings and lend God a good loan, it shall be multiplied for them, and they shall have a generous wage.(18)
  19. And those who have faith in God and His Messenger, they are the Truthful and the Witnesses in the sight of their Lord; they shall have their wage and their light. But those who disbelieve and give lies to Our Signs, they are the people of Hell.(19)
  20. Know that the present life is only a sport and a diversion, and an adornment and a cause for boasting among you, and a rivalry in wealth and children. It is like rain whose vegetation pleases the husbandmen; then it withers and thou seest it turning yellow, then it becomes broken bits. And in the Hereafter, there shall be a terrible punishment, and also forgiveness and pleasure from God; and the present life is not but the stuff of delusion.(20)
  21. Race to forgiveness of your Lord and a Garden whose breadth is as the breadth of the heaven and the earth, and is prepared for those who believe in God and His Messengers; that is the bounty of God; He gives it to whomsoever He will; and God is Highly Bounteous.(21)
  22. No affliction befalls in the earth or in yourselves, but it is in a Book before We create it; surely that is easy for God.(22)
  23. This is so that you may not grieve for what escaped you, nor rejoice in what He has given you; and God does not love any proud, boastful man,(23)
  24. those who are niggardly and bid men to be niggardly. And if any turns away, then surely God is the All-sufficient, the Praiseworthy.(24)
  25. We sent Our Messengers with the Clear Signs, and sent down with them the Book and the Balance, that men should stand by justice; and We sent down iron wherein is terrible might and other uses for mankind, and that God may know him who helps Him and His Messengers in the unseen; surely God is Strong and Mighty.(25)
  26. And We sent Noah and Abraham, and We kept the Prophethood and the Book in their offspring; now some of them are on right lines, but most of them are transgressors.(26)
  27. Then, following in their footsteps, We sent Our Messengers, and following them, We sent Jesus, son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel, and We placed in the hearts of his followers tenderness and mercy; but monasticism they invented themselves __ We did not prescribe it for them, except the seeking of God's good pleasure; then they did not observe it as it should be observed; so We gave the Believers among them their wage; but many of them are transgressors.(27)
  28. O Believers, fear God, and believe in His Messenger, and He will give you a twofold portion of His mercy, and He will appoint for you a light whereby you shall walk, and He will forgive you; and God is Forgiving, Merciful.(28)
  29. It is so that the People of the Book may know that they do not have power over anything of God's bounty, that the bounty is in the hand of God, and He gives it to whom He will; and God is Highly Bounteous.(29)
