In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
1 . The revelation of the Scripture is from Allah , the Mighty , the Wise .
2 . Lo! We have revealed the Scripture unto thee ( Muhammad ) with truth ; so worship Allah , making religion pure for Him ( only ) .
3 . Surely Pure religion is for Allah only . And those who choose protecting friends beside Him ( say ) : We worship them only that they may bring us near unto Allah . Lo! Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ . Lo! Allah guideth not him who is a liar , an ingrate .
4 . If Allah had willed to choose a son , he could have chosen what he would of that which He hath created . Be He glorified! He is Allah , the One , the Absolute .
5 . He hath created the heavens and the earth with truth . He maketh night to succeed day , and He maketh day to succeed night , and He constraineth the sun and the moon to give service , each running on for an appointed term . Is not He the Mighty , the Forgiver?
6 . He created you from one being , then from that ( being ) He made its mate ; and He hath provided for you of cattle eight kinds . He created you in the wombs of your mothers , creation after creation , in a threefold gloom . Such is Allah , your Lord . His is the Sovereignty . There is no God save Him . How then are ye turned away?
7 . If ye are thankless , yet Allah is Independent of you , though He is not pleased with thanklessness for His bondmen ; and if ye are thankful He is pleased therewith for you . No laden soul will bear another ' s load . Then unto your Lord is your return ; and He will tell you what ye used to do . Lo! He knoweth what is in the breasts ( of men ) .
8 . And then some hurt toucheth man , he crieth unto his Lord , turning unto Him ( repentant ) . Then , when He granteth him a boon from Him he forgetteth that for which he cried unto Him before , and setteth up rivals to Allah that he may beguile ( men ) from His way . Say ( O Muhammad , unto such an one ) : Take pleasure in thy disbelief a while . Lo! thou art of the owners of the Fire .
9 . Is he who payeth adoration in the watches of the night , prostrate and standing , bewaring of the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his Lord , ( to be accounted equal with a disbeliever ) ? Say ( unto them , O Muhammad ) : Are those who know equal with those who know not? But only men of understanding will pay heed .
10 . Say : O My bondmen who believe! Observe your duty to your Lord . For those who do good in this world there is good , and Allah ' s earth is spacious . Verily the steadfast will be paid their wages without stint .
11 . Say ( O Muhammad ) : Lo! I am commanded to worship Allah , making religion pure for Him ( only ) .
12 . And I am commanded to be the first of those who surrender ( unto Him ) .
13 . Say : Lo! if I should disobey my Lord , I fear the doom of a tremendous Day .
14 . Say : Allah I worship , making my religion pure for Him ( only ) .
15 . Then worship what ye will beside Him . Say : The losers will be those who lose themselves and their housefolk on the Day of Resurrection . Ah , that will be the manifest loss!
16 . They have an awning of fire above them and beneath them a dais ( of fire ) . With this doth Allah appall His bondmen . O My bondmen , therefor fear Me!
17 . And those who put away false gods lest they should worship them and turn to Allah in repentance , for them there are glad tidings . Therefor give good tidings ( O Muhammad ) to my bondmen
18 . Who hear advice and follow the best thereof . Such are those whom Allah guideth , and such are men of understanding .
19 . Is he on whom the word of doom is fulfilled ( to be helped ) , and canst thou ( O Muhammad ) rescue him who is in the Fire?
20 . But those who keep their duty to their Lord , for them are lofty halls with lofty hails above them , built ( for them ) , beneath which rivers flow . ( It is ) a promise of Allah . Allah faileth not His promise .
21 . Hast thou not seen how Allah hath sent down water from the sky and hath caused it to penetrate the earth as water springs , and afterward thereby produceth crops of divers hues ; and afterward they wither and thou seest them turn yellow ; then He maketh them chaff . Lo! herein verily is a reminder for men of understanding .
22 . Is he whose bosom Allah hath expanded for the Surrender ( unto Him ) , so that he followeth a light from His Lord , ( as he who disbelieveth ) ? Then woe unto those whose hearts are hardened against remembrance of Allah . Such are in plain error .
23 . Allah hath ( now ) revealed the fairest of statements , a Scripture consistent , ( wherein promises of reward are ) paired ( with threats of punishment ) , whereat doth creep the flesh of those who fear their Lord , so that their flesh and their hearts soften to Allah ' s reminder . Such is Allah ' s guidance , where with He guideth whom He will . And him whom Allah sendeth astray , for him there is no guide .
24 . Is he then , who will strike his face against the awful doom upon the Day of Resurrection ( as he who doeth right ) ? And it will be said unto the wrong doers : Taste what ye used to earn .
25 . Those before them denied , and so the doom came on them whence they knew not .
26 . Thus Allah made them taste humiliation in the life of the world , and verily the doom of the Hereafter will be greater if they did but know .
27 . And verily We have coined for mankind in this Quran all kinds of similitudes , that haply they may reflect ;
28 . A Lecture in Arabic , containing no crookedness , that haply they may ward off ( evil ) .
29 . Allah coineth a similitude : A man in relation to whom are several part owners , quarrelling , and a man belonging wholly to one man . Are the two equal in similitude? Praise be to Allah! But most of them know not .
30 . Lo! thou wilt die , and lo! they will die ;
31 . Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection , before your Lord ye will dispute .
32 . And who doth greater wrong than he who telleth a lie against Allah , and denieth the truth when it reacheth him? Will not the home of disbelievers be in hell?
33 . And whoso bringeth the truth and believeth therein Such are the dutiful .
34 . They shall have what they will of their Lord ' s bounty . That is the reward of the good :
35 . That Allah will remit from them the worst of what they did , and will pay them for reward the best they used to Jo .
36 . Will not Allah defend His slave? Yet they would frighten thee with those beside Him . He whom Allah sendeth astray , for him there is no guide .
37 . And he whom Allah guideth , for him there can be no misleader . Is not Allah Mighty , Able to Requite ( the wrong ) ?
38 . And verily , if thou shouldst ask them : Who created the heavens and the earth? they will say : Allah . Say : Bethink you then of those ye worship beside Allah , if Allah willed some hurt for me , could they remove from me His hurt ; or if He willed some mercy for me , could they restrain His mercy? Say : Allah is my all . In Him do ( all ) the trusting put their trust .
39 . Say : O my people! Act in your manner . I too am acting . Thus ye will come to know
40 . Who it is unto whom cometh a doom that will abase him , and on whom there falleth everlasting doom .
41 . Lo! We have revealed unto thee ( Muhammad ) the Scripture for mankind with truth . Then whosoever goeth right it is for his soul , and whosoever strayeth , strayeth only to its hurt . And thou art not a warder over them .
42 . Allah receiveth ( men ' s ) souls at the time of their death , and that ( soul ) which dieth not ( yet ) in its sleep . He keepeth that ( soul ) for which He hath ordained death and dismisseth the rest till an appointed term . Lo herein verily are portents for people who take thought .
43 . Or choose they intercessors other than Allah? Say : What! Even though they have power over nothing and have no intelligence?
44 . Say : Unto Allah belongeth all intercession . His is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth . And afterward unto Him ye will be brought back .
45 . And when Allah alone is mentioned , the hearts of those who believe not in the Hereafter are repelled , and when those ( whom they worship ) beside Him are mentioned , behold! they are glad .
46 . Say : O Allah! Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of the invisible and the visible! Thou wilt judge between Thy slaves concerning that wherein they used to differ .
47 . And though those who do wrong possess all that is in the earth , and therewith as much again , the verily will seek to ransom themselves therewith on the Day of Resurrection from the awful doom ; and there will appear unto them , from their Lord , that wherewith they never reckoned .
48 . And the evils that they earned will appear unto them , and that whereat they used to scoff will surround them .
49 . Now when hurt toucheth a man he crieth unto Us , and afterward when We have granted him a boon from Us , he saith : Only by force of knowledge I obtained it . Nay , but it is a test . But most of them know not .
50 . Those before them said it , yet ( all ) that they had earned availed them not ;
51 . But the evils that they earned smote them ; and such of these as do wrong , the evils that they earn will smite them ; they cannot escape .
52 . Know they not that Allah enlargeth providence for whom He will , and straiteneth it ( for whom He will ) . Lo! herein verily are portents for people who believe .
53 . Say : My slaves who have been prodigal to their own hurt! Despair not of the mercy of Allah , Who forgiveth all sins . Lo! He is the Forgiving , the Merciful .
54 . Turn unto Him repentant , and surrender unto Him , before there come unto you the doom , when ye cannot be helped .
55 . And follow the better ( guidance ) of that which is revealed unto you from your Lord , before the doom cometh on you suddenly when ye know not ,
56 . Lest any soul should say Alas , my grief that I was unmindful of Allah , and I was indeed among the scoffers!
57 . Or should say : if Allah had but guided me I should have been among the dutiful!
58 . Or should say , when it seeth the doom : Oh , that I had but a second chance that I might be among the righteous!
59 . ( But now the answer will be ) : Nay , for My revelations came unto thee , but thou didst deny them and wast scornful and wast among the disbelievers .
60 . And on the Day of Resurrection thou ( Muhammad ) seest those who lied concerning Allah with their faces blackened . Is not the home of the scorners in hell?
61 . And Allah delivereth those who ward off ( evil ) because of their deserts . Evil toucheth them not , nor do they grieve .
62 . Allah is Creator of all things , and He is Guardian over all things .
63 . His are the keys of the heavens and the earth , and they who disbelieve the revelations of Allah such are they who are the losers .
64 . Say ( O Muhammad , to the disbelievers ) : Do ye bid me serve other than Allah? O ye fools!
65 . And verily it hath been revealed unto thee as unto those before thee ( saying ) : If thou ascribe a partner to Allah thy work will fail and thou indeed wilt be among the losers .
66 . Nay , but Allah must thou serve , and be among the thankful!
67 . And they esteem not Allah as He hath the right to be esteemed , when the whole earth is His handful on the Day of Resurrection , and the heavens are rolled in His right hand . Glorified is He and High Exalted from all that they ascribe as partner ( unto Him ) .
68 . And the trumpet is blown , and all who are in the heavens and the earth swoon away , save him whom Allah willeth . Then it is blown a second time , and behold them standing waiting!
69 . And the earth shineth with the light of her Lord , and the Book is set up , and the Prophets and the witnesses are brought , and it is judged between them with truth , and they are not wronged .
70 . And each soul is paid in full for what it did . And He is best aware of what they do .
71 . And those who disbelieve are driven unto hell in troops till , when they reach it and the gates thereof are opened , and the warders thereof say unto them : Came there not unto you messenger ' s of your own , reciting unto you the revelations of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this your Day? they say Yea , verily . But the word of doom for disbelievers is fulfilled .
72 . It is said ( unto them ) : Enter ye the gates of hell to dwell therein . Thus hapless is the journey ' s end of the scorners .
73 . And those who keep their duty to their Lord are driven unto the Garden in troops till , when they reach it , and the gates thereof are opened , and the warders thereof say unto them : Peace be unto you! Ye are good , so enter ye ( the Garden of delight ) , to dwell therein ;
74 . They say : Praise be to Allah , Who hath fulfilled His promise unto us and hath made us inherit the land , sojourning in the Garden where we will! So bounteous is the wage of workers .
75 . And thou ( O Muhammad ) seest the angels thronging round the Throne , hymning the praises of their Lord . And they are judged aright . And it is said : Praise be to Allah , the Lord of the Worlds!
