In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
     
  1 . The commandment of Allah will come to pass , so seek not ye to hasten it . Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate ( with Him ) .

2 . He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His command unto whom He will of His bondmen , ( saying ) : Warn mankind that there is no god save Me , so keep your duty unto Me .

3 . He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth . High be He exalted above all that they associate ( with Him ) .

4 . He hath created man from a drop of fluid , yet behold! he is an open opponent .

5 . And the cattle hath He created , whence ye have warm clothing and uses , and whereof ye eat .

6 . And wherein is beauty for you , when ye bring them home , and when ye take them out to pasture .

7 . And they bear your loads for you unto a land ye could not reach save with great trouble to yourselves . Lo! your Lord is Full of Pity , Merciful .

8 . And horses and mules and asses ( hath He created ) that ye may ride them , and for ornament . And He createth that which ye know not .

9 . And Allah ' s is the direction of the way , and some ( roads ) go not straight . And had He willed He would have led you all aright .

10 . He it is Who sendeth down water from the sky , whence ye have drink , and whence are trees on which ye send your beasts to pasture .

11 . Therewith He causeth crops to grow for you , and the olive and the date palm and grapes and all kinds of fruit . Lo! herein is indeed a portent for people who reflect .

12 . And he hath constrained the night and the day and the sun and the moon to be of service unto you , and the stars are made subservient by His command . Lo! herein indeed are portents for people who have sense .

13 . And whatsoever He hath created for you in the earth of divers hues , lo! therein is indeed a portent for people who take heed .

14 . And He it is Who hath constrained the sea to be of service that ye eat fresh meat from thence , and bring forth from thence ornaments which ye wear . And thou seest the ships ploughing it that ye ( mankind ) may seek of His bounty , and that haply ye may give thanks .

15 . And He hath cast into the earth firm hills that it quake not with you , and streams and roads that ye may find a way .

16 . And landmarks ( too ) , and by the star they find a way .

17 . Is He then Who createth as him who createth not? Will ye not then remember?

18 . And if ye would count the favor of Allah ye cannot reckon it . Lo! Allah is indeed Forgiving , Merciful .

19 . And Allah knoweth that which ye keep hidden and that which ye proclaim .

20 . Those unto whom they cry beside Allah created naught , but are themselves created .

21 . ( They are ) dead , not living . And they know not when they will be raised .

22 . Your God is One God . But as for those who believe not in the Hereafter their hearts refuse to know , for they are proud .

23 . Assuredly Allah knoweth that which they keep hidden and that which they proclaim . Lo! He loveth not the proud .

24 . And when it is said unto them : What hath your Lord revealed? they say : ( Mere ) fables of the men of old .

25 . That they may bear their burdens undiminished on the Day of Resurrection , with somewhat of the burdens of those whom they mislead without knowledge . Ah! evil is that which they bear!

26 . Those before them plotted , so Allah struck at the foundations of their building , and then the roof fell down upon them from above them , and the doom came on them whence they knew not ;

27 . Then on the Day of Resurrection He will disgrace them and will say : Where are My partners , for whose sake ye opposed ( My Guidance ) ? Those who have been given knowledge will say : Disgrace this day and evil are upon the disbelievers ,

28 . Whom the angels cause to die while they are wronging themselves . Then will they make full submission ( saying ) : We used not to do any wrong . Nay! Surely Allah is Knower of what ye used to do .

29 . So enter the gates of hell , to dwell therein for ever . Woeful indeed will be the lodging of the arrogant .

30 . And it is said unto those who ward off ( evil ) : What hath your Lord revealed? They say Good : For those who do good in this world there is a good ( reward ) and the home of the Hereafter will be better . Pleasant indeed will be the home of those who ward off ( evil ) .

31 . Gardens of Eden which they enter , underneath which rivers flow , wherein they have what they will . Thus Allah repayeth those who ward off ( evil ) .

32 . Those whom the angels cause to die ( when they are ) good They say : Peace be unto you! Enter the Garden because of what ye used to do .

33 . Await they aught save that the angels should come unto them or thy Lord ' s command should come to pass? Even so did those before them . Allah wronged them not , but they did wrong themselves ,

34 . So that the evil of what they did smote them , and that which they used to mock surrounded them .

35 . And the idolaters say : Had Allah willed , we had not worshipped aught beside Him , we and our fathers , nor had we forbidden aught without ( command from ) Him . Even so did those before them . Are the messengers charged with aught save plain conveyance ( of the message ) ?

36 . And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger , ( proclaiming ) : Serve Allah and shun false gods . Then some of them ( there were ) whom Allah guided , and some of them ( there were ) upon whom error had just hold . Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!

37 . Even if thou ( O Muhammad ) desirest their right guidance , still Allah assuredly will not guide him who misleadeth . Such have no helpers .

38 . And they swear by Allah their most binding oaths ( that ) Allah will not raise up him who dieth . Nay , but it is a promise ( binding ) upon Him in truth , but most of mankind know not ,

39 . That he may explain unto them that wherein they differ , and that those who disbelieved may know that they were liars .

40 . And Our word unto a thing , when We intend it , is only that We say unto it : Be! and it is .

41 . And those who became fugitives for the cause of Allah after they had been oppressed , We verily shall give them goodly lodging in the world , and surely the reward of the Hereafter is greater , if they but knew ;

42 . Such as are steadfast and put their trust in Allah .

43 . And We sent not ( as Our messengers ) before thee other than men whom We inspired Ask the followers of the Remembrance if ye know not!

44 . With clear proofs and writings ; and We have revealed unto thee the Remembrance that thou mayst explain to mankind that which hath been revealed for them , and that haply they may reflect .

45 . Are they who plan ill deeds then secure that Allah will not cause the earth to swallow them , or that the doom will not come on them whence they know not?

46 . Or that He will not seize them in their going to and fro that there be no escape for them?

47 . Or that He will not seize them with a gradual wasting? Lo! thy Lord is indeed Full of Pity , Merciful!

48 . Have they not observed all thing that Allah hath created , how their shadows incline to the right and to the left , making prostration unto Allah , and they are lowly?

49 . And unto Allah maketh prostration whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth of living creatures , and the angels ( also ) , and they are not proud

50 . They fear their Lord above them , and do what they are hidden .

51 . Allah hath said : Choose not two gods . There is only One God . So of Me , Me only , be in awe .

52 . Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth , and religion is His for ever . Will ye then fear any other than Allah?

53 . And whatever of comfort ye enjoy , it is from Allah . Then , when misfortune reacheth you , unto Him ye cry for help .

54 . And afterward , when He hath rid you of the misfortune , behold! a set of you attribute partners to their Lord ,

55 . So as to deny that which We have given them . Then enjoy life ( while ye may ) , for ye will come to know .

56 . And they assign a portion of that which We have given them unto what they know not . By Allah! but ye will indeed be asked concerning ( all ) that ye used to invent .

57 . And they assign unto Allah daughters . Be He glorified! and unto themselves what they desire ;

58 . When if one of them receiveth tidings of the birth of a female , his face remaineth darkened , and he is wroth inwardly .

59 . He bideth himself from the folk because of the evil of that whereof he hath bad tidings , ( asking himself ) : Shall he keep it in contempt , or bury it beneath the dust . Verily evil is their judgment .

60 . For those who believe not in the Hereafter is an evil similitude , and Allah ' s is the Sublime Similitude . He is the Mighty , the Wise .

61 . If Allah were to take mankind to task for their wrong doing , he would not leave hereon a living creature , but He reprieveth them to an appointed term , and when their term cometh they cannot put ( it ) off an hour nor ( yet ) advance ( it ) .

62 . And they assign unto Allah that which they ( themselves ) dislike , and their tongues expound the lie that the better portion will be theirs . Assuredly theirs will be the Fire , and they will be abandoned .

63 . By Allah , We verily sent messengers unto the nations before thee , but the devil made their deeds fair seeming unto them . So be is their patron this day , and theirs will be a painful doom .

64 . And we have revealed the Scripture unto thee only that thou mayst explain unto them that wherein they differ , and ( as ) a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe .

65 . Allah sendeth down water from the sky and therewith revives the earth after her death! Lo! herein is indeed a portent for a folk whim hear .

66 . And lo! in the cattle there is a lesson for you . We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies , from betwixt the refuse and the blood , pure milk palatable to the drinkers .

67 . And of the fruits of the date palm , and grapes , whence ye derive strong drink and ( also ) good nourishment . Lo! therein , is indeed a portent for people who have sense .

68 . And thy Lord inspired the bee , saying : Choose thou habitations in the hills and in the trees and in that which they thatch ;

69 . Then eat of all fruits , and follow the ways of thy Lord , made smooth ( for thee ) . There cometh forth from their bellies a drink diverse of hues , wherein is healing for mankind . Lo! herein is indeed a portent for people who reflect .

70 . And Allah createth you , then causeth you to die , and among you is he who is brought back to the most abject stage of life , so that be knoweth nothing after ( having had ) knowledge . Lo ! Allah is Knower , Powerful .

71 . And Allah hath favored some of you above others in provision . Now those who are more favored will by no means hand over their provision to those ( slaves ) whom their right hands possess , so that they may be equal with them in respect thereof . Is it then the grace of Allah that they deny?

72 . And Allah hath given you wives of your own kind , and hath given you , from your wives , sons and grandsons , and hath made provision of good things for you . Is it then in vanity that they believe and in the grace of Allah that they disbelieve?

73 . And they worship beside Allah that which owneth no provision whatsoever for them from the heavens or the earth , nor have they ( whom they worship ) any power .

74 . So coin not similitudes for Allah . Lo! Allah knoweth ; ye know not .

75 . Allah coineth a similitude : ( on the one hand ) a ( mere ) chattel slave , who hath control of nothing , and ( on the other hand ) one on whom We have bestowed a fair provision from Us , and he spendeth thereof secretly and openly . Are they equal? Praise be to Allah! But most of them know not .

76 . And Allah coineth a similitude Two men , one of them dumb , having control of nothing , and he is a burden on his owner ; whithersoever be directeth him to go , he bringeth no good . Is he equal with one who enjoineth justice and followeth a straight path ( of conduct ) ?

77 . And unto Allah belongeth the Unseen of the heavens and the earth , and the matter of the Hour ( of Doom ) is but as a winkling of the eye , or it is nearer still . Lo! Allah is Able to do all things .

78 . And Allah brought you forth from the wombs of your mothers knowing nothing , and gave you hearing and sight and hearts that haply ye might give thanks .

79 . Have they not seen the birds obedient in mid-air? None holdeth them save Allah . Lo! herein , verily , are portents for a people who believe .

80 . And Allah hath given you in your houses an abode , and hath given you ( also ) , of the hides of cattle , houses which ye find light ( to carry ) on the day of migration and on the day of pitching camp ; and of their wool and their fur and their hair , caparison and comfort for a while .

81 . And Allah hath given you , of that which He hath created , shelter from the sun ; and hath given you places of refuge in the mountains , and hath given you coats to ward off the heat from you , and coats ( of armor ) to save you from your own foolhardiness . Thus doth He perfect His favor unto you , in order that ye may surrender ( unto Him ) .

82 . Then , if they turn away , thy duty ( O Muhammad ) is but plain conveyance ( of the message ) .

83 . They know the favor of Allah and then deny it . Most of them are ingrates .

84 . And ( bethink you of ) the day when We raise up of every nation a witness , then there is no leave for disbelievers , nor are they allowed to make amends .

85 . And when those who did wrong behold the doom , it will not be made light for them , nor will they be reprieved .

86 . And when those who ascribed partners to Allah behold those partners of theirs , they will say : Our Lord! these are our partners unto whom we used to cry instead of Thee . But they will fling to them the saying : Lo! ye verily are liars!

87 . And they proffer unto Allah submission on that day , and all that they used to invent hath failed them .

88 . For those who disbelieve and debar ( men ) from the way of Allah , We add doom to doom because they wrought corruption .

89 . And ( bethink you of ) the day when We raise in every nation a witness against them of their own folk , and We bring thee ( Muhammad ) as a witness against these . And We reveal the Scripture unto thee as an exposition of all things , and a guidance and a mercy and good tidings for those who have surrendered ( to Allah ) .

90 . Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness , and giving to kinsfolk , and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness . He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed .

91 . Fulfill the covenant of Allah when ye have covenanted , and break not your oaths after the asseveration of them , and after ye have made Allah surety over you . Lo! Allah knoweth what ye do .

92 . And be not like unto her who unravelleth the thread , after she hath made it strong , to thin filaments , making your oaths a deceit between you because of a nation being more numerous than ( another ) nation . Allah only trieth you thereby , and He verily will explain to you on the Day of Resurrection that wherein ye differed .

93 . Had Allah willed He could have made you ( all ) one nation , but He sendeth whom He will astray and guideth whom He will , and ye will indeed be asked of what ye used to do .

94 . Make not your oaths a deceit between you , lest a foot should slip after being firmly planted and ye should taste evil forasmuch as ye debarred ( men ) from the way of Allah , and yours should be an awful doom .

95 . And purchase not a small gain at the price of Allah ' s covenant . Lo! that which Allah hath is better for you , if ye did but know .

96 . That which ye have wasteth away , and that which Allah hath remaineth . And verily We shall pay those who are steadfast a recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do .

97 . Whosoever doeth right , whether male or female , and is a believer , him verily We shall quicken with good life , and We shall pay them a recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do .

98 . And when thou recitest the Quran , seek refuge in Allah from Satan the outcast .

99 . Lo! he hath no power over those who believe and put trust in their Lord .

100 . His power is only over those who make a friend of him , and those who ascribe partners unto Him ( Allah ) .

101 . And when We put a revelation in place of ( another ) revelation , and Allah knoweth best what He revealeth they say : Lo! thou art but inventing . Most of them know not .

102 . Say : The holy Spirit hath revealed it from thy Lord with truth , that it may confirm ( the faith of ) those who believe , and as guidance and good tidings for those who have surrendered ( to Allah ) .

103 . And We know well that they say : Only a man teacheth him . The speech of him at whom they falsely hint is outlandish , and this is clear Arabic speech .

104 . Lo! those who disbelieve the revelations of Allah , Allah guideth them not and theirs will be a painful doom .

105 . Only they invent falsehood who believe not Allah ' s revelations , and ( only ) they are the liars .

106 . Whoso disbelieveth in Allah after his belief save him who is forced thereto and whose heart is still content with Faith but whoso findeth ease in disbelief : On them is wrath from Allah . Theirs will be an awful doom .

107 . That is because they have chosen the life of the world rather than the Hereafter , and because Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk .

108 . Such are they whose hearts and ears and eyes Allah hath sealed . And such are the heedless .

109 . Assuredly in the Hereafter they are the losers .

110 . Then lo! thy Lord for those who become fugitives after they had been persecuted , and then fought and were steadfast lo! thy Lord afterward is ( for them ) indeed Forgiving , Merciful

111 . On the Day when every soul will come pleading for itself , and every soul will be repaid what it did , and they will not be wronged .

112 . Allah coineth a similitude : a township that dwelt secure and well content , its provision coming to it in abundance from every side , but it disbelieved in Allah ' s favors , so Allah made it experience the garb of dearth and fear because of what they used to do .

113 . And verily there had come unto them a messenger from among them , but they had denied him , and So the torment seized them while they were wrong-doers .

114 . So eat of the lawful and good food which Allah hath provided for you , and thank the bounty of your Lord if it is Him ye serve .

115 . He hath forbidden for you only carrion and blood and swine flesh and that which hath been immolated in the name of any other than Allah ; but he who is driven thereto , neither craving nor transgressing , lo! then Allah is Forgiving , Merciful .

116 . And speak not , concerning that which your own tongues qualify ( as clean or unclean ) , the falsehood : "This is lawful , and this is forbidden , " so that ye invent a lie against Allah . Lo! those who invent a lie against Allah will not succeed .

117 . A brief enjoyment ( will be theirs ) ; and theirs a gainful doom .

118 . And unto those who are Jews We have forbidden that which We have already related unto thee . And We wronged them not , but they were wont to wrong themselves .

119 . Then lo! thy Lord for those who do evil in ignorance and afterward repent and amend lot ( for them ) thy Lord is afterward indeed Forgiving , Merciful .

120 . Lo! Abraham was a nation obedient to Allah , by nature upright , and he was not of the idolaters ;

121 . Thankful for His bounties ; He chose him and He guided him unto a straight path .

122 . And We gave him good in the world , and in the Hereafter he is among the righteous .

123 . And afterward We inspired thee ( Muhammad , saying ) : Follow the religion of Abraham , as one by nature upright . He was not of the idolaters .

124 . The Sabbath was appointed only for those who differed concerning it , and lo! thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that wherein they used to differ .

125 . Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation , and reason with them in the better way . Lo! thy Lord is best aware of him who strayeth from His way , and He is Best Aware of those who go aright .

126 . If ye punish , then punish with the like of that wherewith ye were afflicted . But if ye endure patiently , verily it is better for the patient .

127 . Endure thou patiently ( O Muhammad ) . Thine endurance is only by ( the help of ) Allah . Grieve not for them , and be not in distress because of that which they devise .

128 . Lo! Allah is with those who keep their duty unto Him and those who are doers of good .
