The sending down of the Book
undoubtedly is from the Lord of the worlds.
What they say, 'that it has been
fabricated by him? Nay, it is the truth from your Lord that you
may warn such people to whom no warner came before you that haply
they may get the way.
Allah is, He Who has made heavens
and earth and whatever is in between them in six days, then He
seated Himself on the throne. You heave neither supporter nor
intercessor leaving Him. Do you not then reflect?
He plans the affairs from the
heaven to the earth, then it will return to Him in a day whose
measure is a thousand years in your counting.
He it is, the knower of every
hidden and apparent Honourable, Merciful.
He, Who whatever He made, made
best, and He began the creation of man from the clay.
Then He made his progeny from an
extract of valueless water.
Then He set him right and breathed
into him of His spirit and gave to you ear, and eyes and heart.
What a little gratitude you acknowledge?
And they said' 'what! When we shall
be merged in the earth, shall we be made a new? Nay! They even
deny the presence before their Lord.
Say you, 'the angel of death who
has been appointed over you causes you to die, then you shall be
returned to your Lord'.

Now taste you, for you forgot the
meeting of this your day, We have left you, now taste the lasting
torment the recompense of your doing.
Those only believe in Our signs,
who when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate and
praising their Lord speak His Hollowness and they are not proud.

Their sides keep away from beds and
they call upon their Lord in fear and hope and spend in charity
out of what We have provided them.
And no soul knows what joy of eyes

Will then he who is a believer be
like him who is disobedient, they are not equal?
As to those who have believed and
have done good deeds for them are gardens for abiding, an
entertainment for their doings.
And as for those who are
disobedient, their destination is the Fire. Whenever they will
wish to come out from there, they will be returned back into the
same and it will be said to them, Taste the torment of this Fire
which you used to belie'.
And surely, We will make them taste
some of the nearer torments before the great torment, so that one
who sees it may hope that just now they will turn back repenting.
And who is more unjust than he who

them and wait, undoubtedly; they are also to wait.
