035 TheOriginator

 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

 1. All praise is due to Allah, the Originator of the heavens 
 and the earth, the Maker of the angels, messengers flying on 
 wings, two, and three, and four; He increases in creation 
 what He pleases; surely Allah has power over all things.

 2. Whatever Allah grants to men of (His) mercy, there is 
 none to withhold it, and what He withholds there is none to 
 send it forth after that, and He is the Mighty, the Wise

 3. O men! call to mind the favor of Allah on you; is there 
 any creator besides Allah who gives you sustenance from the 
 heaven and the earth? There is no god but He; whence are you 
 then turned away?

 4. And if they call you a liar, truly apostles before you 
 were called liars, and to Allah are all affairs returned.

 5. O men! surely the promise of Allah is true, therefore let 
 not the life of this world deceive you, and let not the 
 archdeceiver deceive you respecting Allah.

 6. Surely the Shaitan is your enemy, so take him for an 
 enemy; he only invites his party that they may be inmates of 
 the burning

 7 (As for) those who disbelieve, they shall have a severe 
 punishment, and (as for) those who believe and do good, they 
 shall have forgiveness and a great reward.

 8. What! is he whose evil deed is made fairseeming to him so 
 much so that he considers it good? Now surely Allah makes 
 err whom He pleases and guides aright whom He pleases, so 
 let not your soul waste away in grief for them; surely Allah 
 is Cognizant of what they do

 9. And Allah is He Who sends the winds so they raise a 
 cloud, then We drive it on to a dead country, and therewith 
 We give life to the earth after its death; even so is the 

 10. Whoever desires honor, then to Allah belongs the honor 
 wholly. To Him do ascend the good words; and the good deeds, 
 lift them up, and (as for) those who plan evil deeds, they 
 shall have a severe chastisement; and (as for) their plan, 
 it shall perish.

 11. And Allah created you of dust, then of the life-germ, 
 then He made you pairs; and no female bears, nor does she 
 bring forth, except with His knowledge; and no one whose 
 life is lengthened has his life lengthened, nor is aught 
 diminished of one's life, but it is all in a book; surely 
 this is easy to Allah.

 12. And the two seas are not alike: the one sweet, that 
 subdues thirst by its excessive sweetness, pleasant to 
 drink; and the other salt, that burns by its saltness; yet 
 from each of them you eat fresh flesh and bring forth 
 ornaments which you wear; and you see the ships cleave 
 through it that you may seek of His bounty and that you may 
 be grateful.

 13. He causes the night to enter in upon the day, and He 
 causes the day to enter in upon the night, and He has made 
 subservient (to you) the sun and the moon; each one follows 
 its course to an appointed time; this is Allah, your Lord, 
 His is the kingdom; and those whom you call upon besides Him 
 do not control a straw.

 14. If you call on them they shall not hear your call, and 
 even if they could hear they shall not answer you; and on 
 the resurrection day they will deny your associating them 
 (with Allah); and none can inform you like the One Who is 

 15. O men! you are they who stand in need of Allah, and 
 Allah is He Who is the Self-sufficient, the Praised One.

 16. If He please, He will take you off and bring a new 

 17. And this is not hard to Allah.

 18. And a burdened soul cannot bear the burden of another 
 and if one weighed down by burden should cry for (another to 
 carry) its burden, not aught of it shall be carried, even 
 though he be near of kin. You warn only those who fear their 
 Lord in secret and keep up prayer; and whoever purifies 
 himself, he purifies himself only for (the good of) his own 
 soul; and to Allah is the eventual coming.

 19. And the blind and the seeing are not alike

 20. Nor the darkness and the light,

 21. Nor the shade and the heat,

 22. Neither are the living and the dead alike. Surely Allah 
 makes whom He pleases hear, and you cannot make those hear 
 who are m the graves.

 23. You are naught but a warner.

 24. Surely We have sent you with the truth as a bearer of 
 good news and a warner; and there is not a people but a 
 warner has gone among them.

 25. And if they call you a liar, so did those before them 
 indeed call (their apostles) liars; their apostles had come 
 to them with clear arguments, and with scriptures, and with 
 the illuminating book.

 26 Then did I punish those who disbelieved, so how was the 
 manifestation of My disapproval?

 27. Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the 
 cloud, then We bring forth therewith fruits of various 
 colors; and in the mountains are streaks, white and red, of 
 various hues and (others) intensely black?

 28. And of men and beasts and cattle are various species of 
 it likewise; those of His servants only who are possessed of 
 knowledge fear Allah; surely Allah is Mighty, Forgiving.

 29. Surely they who recite the Book of Allah and keep up 
 prayer and spend out of what We have given them secretly and 
 openly, hope for a gain which will not perish.

 30. That He may pay them back fully their rewards and give 
 them more out of His grace: surely He is Forgiving, 
 Multiplier of rewards.

 31. And that which We have revealed to you of the Book, that 
 is the truth verifying that which is before it; most surely 
 with respect to His servants Allah is Aware, Seeing.

 32. Then We gave the Book for an inheritance to those whom 
 We chose from among Our servants; but of them is he who 
 makes his soul to suffer a loss, and of them is he who takes 
 a middle course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds 
 of goodness by Allah's permission; this is the great 

 33. Gardens of perpetuity, they shall enter therein; they 
 shad be made to wear therein bracelets of gold and pearls, 
 and their dress therein shall be silk.

 34. And they shall say: (All) praise is due to Allah, Who 
 has made grief to depart from us; most surely our Lord is 
 Forgiving, Multiplier of rewards,

 35. Who has made us alight in a house abiding for ever out 
 of . His grace; toil shall not touch us therein, nor shall 
 fatigue therein afflict us.

 34. And (as for) those who disbelieve, for them is the fire 
 of hell; it shall not be finished with them entirely so that 
 they should die, nor shall the chastisement thereof be 
 lightened to them: even thus do We retribute every 
 ungrateful one.

 37. And they shall cry therein for succour: O our Lord ! 
 take us out, we will do good deeds other than those which we 
 used to do. Did We not preserve you alive long enough, so 
 that he who would be mindful in it should mind? And there 
 came to you the warner; therefore taste; because for the 
 unjust, there 1S no helper.

 38. Surely Allah is the Knower of what is unseen m the 
 heavens and the earth; surely He is Cognizant of what IS m 
 the hearts.

 39. He it is Who made you rulers in the land; therefore 
 whoever disbelieves, his unbelief is against himself; and 
 their unbelief does not increase the disbelievers with their 
 Lord in anything except hatred; and their unbelief does not 
 increase the disbelievers m anything except loss.

 40. Say: Have you considered your associates which you call 
 upon besides Allah? Show me what part of the earth they have 
 created, or have they any share in the heavens; or, have We 
 given them a book so that they follow a clear argument 
 thereof? Nay, the unjust do not hold out promises one to 
 another but only to deceive.

 41 Surely Allah upholds the heavens and the earth lest they 
 come to naught; and if they should come to naught, there Is 
 none who can uphold them after Him; surely He is the 
 Forbearing, the Forgiving.

 42. And they swore by Allah with the strongest of their 
 oaths that if there came to them a warner they would be 
 better guided than any of the nations; but when there came 
 to them a warner it increased them in naught but aversion.

 43. (In) behaving proudly in the land and in planning evil; 
 and the evil plans shall not beset any save the authors of 
 it. Then should they wait for aught except the way of the 
 former people? For you shall not find any alteration in the 
 course of Allah; and you shall not find any change in the 
 course of Allah.

 44. Have they not travelled in the land and seen how was the 
 end of those before them while they were stronger than these 
 in power? And Allah is not such that any thing in the 
 heavens or in the earth should escape Him; surely He is 
 Knowing, Powerful.

 45. And were Allah to punish men for what they earn, He 
 would not leave on the back of it any creature, but He 
 respites them till an appointed term; so when their doom 
 shall come, then surely Allah is Seeing with respect to His
