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

 1. The revelation of the Book is from Allah, the Mighty, the 

 2. Surely We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, 
 therefore serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience.

 3. Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) 
 and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), 
 We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to 
 Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which 
 they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a 
 liar, ungrateful.

 4. If Allah desire to take a son to Himself, He will surely 
 choose those He pleases from what He has created. Glory be 
 to Him: He is Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all).

 5. He has created the heavens and the earth with the truth; 
 He makes the night cover the day and makes the day overtake 
 the night, and He has made the sun and the moon subservient; 
 each one runs on to an assigned term; now surely He is the 
 Mighty, the great Forgiver.

 6. He has created you from a single being, then made its 
 mate of the same (kind), and He has made for you eight of 
 the cattle in pairs. He creates you in the wombs of your 
 mothers-- a creation after a creation-- in triple darkness; that 
 is Allah your Lord, His is the kingdom; there is no god but 
 He; whence are you then turned away?

 7. If you are ungrateful, then surely Allah is 
 Self-sufficient above all need of you; and He does not like 
 ungratefulness in His servants; and if you are grateful, He 
 likes it in you; and no bearer of burden shall bear the 
 burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, then 
 will He inform you of what you did; surely He is Cognizant 
 of what is in the breasts.

 8. And when distress afflicts a man he calls upon his Lord 
 turning to Him frequently; then when He makes him possess a 
 favor from Him, he forgets that for which he called upon Him 
 before, and sets up rivals to Allah that he may cause (men) 
 to stray off from His path. Say: Enjoy yourself in your 
 ungratefulness a little, surely you are of the inmates of 
 the fire.

 9. What! he who is obedient during hours of the night, 
 prostrating himself and standing, takes care of the 
 hereafter and hopes for the mercy of his Lord! Say: Are 
 those who know and those who do not know alike? Only the men 
 of understanding are mindful.

 10. Say: O my servants who believe! be careful of (your duty 
 to) your Lord; for those who do good in this world is good, 
 and Allah's earth is spacious; only the patient will be paid 
 back their reward in full without measure.

 11. Say: I am commanded that I should serve Allah, being 
 sincere to Him in obedience.

 12. And I am commanded that I shall be the first of those 
 who submit.

 13. Say: I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the chastisement of a 
 grievous day.

 14. Say: Allah (it is Whom) I serve, being sincere to Him in 
 my obedience:

 15. Serve then what you like besides Him. Say: The losers 
 surely are those who shall have lost themselves and their 
 families on the day of resurrection; now surely that is the 
 clear loss.

 16. They shall have coverings of fire above them and 
 coverings beneath them; with that Allah makes His servants 
 to fear, so be careful of (your duty to) Me, O My servants!

 17, And (as for) those who keep off from the worship of the 
 idols and turn to Allah, they shall have good news, 
 therefore give good news to My servants,

 18. Those who listen to the word, then follow the best of 
 it; those are they whom Allah has guided, and those it is 
 who are the men of understanding.

 19. What! as for him then against whom the sentence of 
 chastisement is due: What! can you save him who is in the 

 . 20. But (as for) those who are careful of (their duty to) 
 their Lord, they shall have high places, above them higher 
 places, built (for them), beneath which flow rivers; (this 
 is) the promise of Allah: Allah will not fail in (His) 

 21. Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the 
 cloud, then makes it go along in the earth in springs, then 
 brings forth therewith herbage of various colors, then it 
 withers so that you see it becoming yellow, then He makes it 
 a thing crushed and broken into pieces? Most surely there is 
 a reminder in this for the men of understanding.

 22. What! is he whose heart Allah has opened for Islam so 
 that he is in a light from his Lord (like the hard-hearted)? 
 Nay, woe to those whose hearts are hard against the 
 remembrance of Allah; those are in clear error.

 23. Allah has revealed the best announcement, a book 
 conformable in its various parts, repeating, whereat do 
 shudder the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their 
 skins and their hearts become pliant to the remembrance of 
 Allah; this is Allah's guidance, He guides with it whom He 
 pleases; and (as for) him whom Allah makes err, there is no 
 guide for him.

 24. Is he then who has to guard himself with his own person 
 against the evil chastisement on the resurrection day? And 
 it will be said to the unjust: Taste what you earned.

 25. Those before them rejected (prophets), therefore there 
 came to them the chastisement from whence they perceived 

 26. So Allah made them taste the disgrace in this world's 
 life, and certainly the punishment of the hereafter is 
 greater; did they but know!

 27. And certainly We have set forth to men in this Quran 
 similitudes of every sort that they may mind.

 28. An Arabic Quran without any crookedness, that they may 
 guard (against evil).

 29. Allah sets forth an example: There is a slave in whom 
 are (several) partners differing with one another, and there 
 is another slave wholly owned by one man. Are the two alike 
 in condition? (All) praise is due to Allah. Nay! most of 
 them do not know.

 30. Surely you shall die and they (too) shall surely die.

 31. Then surely on the day of resurrection you will contend 
 one with another before. your Lord.

 32. Who is then more unjust than he who utters a lie against 
 Allah and (he who) gives the lie to the truth when it comes 
 to him; is there not in hell an abode for the unbelievers?

 33. And he who brings the truth and (he who) accepts it as 
 the truth-- these are they that guard (against evil).

 34. They shall have with their Lord what they please; that 
 is the reward of the doers of good;

 35. So that Allah will do away with the worst of what they 
 did and give them their reward for the best of what they do.

 36. Is not Allah sufficient for His servant? And they seek 
 to frighten you with those besides Him; and whomsoever Allah 
 makes err, there is no guide for him.

 37. And whom Allah guides, there is none that can lead him 
 astray; is not Allah Mighty, the Lord of retribution?

 38. And should you ask them, Who created the heavens and the 
 earth? They would most certainly say: Allah. Say: Have you 
 then considered that what you call upon besides Allah, would 
 they, if Allah desire to afflict me with harm, be the 
 removers of His harm, or (would they), if Allah desire to 
 show me mercy, be the withholders of His mercy? Say: Allah 
 is sufficient for me; on Him do the reliant rely.

 39. Say: O my people! work in your place, surely I am a 
 worker, so you will come to know.

 40. Who it is to whom there shall come a punishment which 
 will disgrace him and to whom will be due a lasting 

 41. Surely We have revealed to you the Book with the truth 
 for the sake of men; so whoever follows the right way, it is 
 for his own soul and whoever errs, he errs only to its 
 detriment; and you are not a custodian over them.

 42. Allah takes the souls at the time of their death, and 
 those that die not during their sleep; then He withholds 
 those on whom He has passed the decree of death and sends 
 the others back till an appointed term; most surely there 
 are signs in this for a people who reflect.

 43. Or have they taken intercessors besides Allah? Say: 
 what! even though they did not ever have control over 
 anything, nor do they understand.

 44. Say: Allah's is the intercession altogether; His is the 
 kingdom of the heavens and the earth, then to Him you shall 
 be brought back.

 45. And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those 
 who do not believe in the hereafter shrink, and when those 
 besides Him are mentioned, lo! they are joyful.

 46. Say: O Allah! Originator of the heavens and the earth, 
 Knower of the unseen and the seen! Thou (only) judgest 
 between Thy servants as to that wherein they differ.

 47. And had those who are unjust all that is in the earth 
 and the like of it with it, they would certainly offer it as 
 ransom (to be saved) from the evil of the punishment on the 
 day of resurrection; and what they never thought of shall 
 become plain to them from Allah.

 48. And the evil (consequences) of what they wrought shall 
 become plain to them, and the very thing they mocked at 
 shall beset them.

 49. So when harm afflicts a man he calls upon Us; then, when 
 We give him a favor from Us, he says: I have been given it 
 only by means of knowledge. Nay, it is a trial, but most of 
 them do not know.

 50. Those before them did say it indeed, but what they 
 earned availed them not.

 51. So there befell them the evil (consequences) of what 
 they earned; and (as for) those who are unjust from among 
 these, there shall befall them the evil (consequences) of 
 what they earn, and they shall not escape.

 52. Do they not know that Allah makes ample the means of 
 subsistence to whom He pleases, and He straitens; most 
 surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.

 53. Say: O my servants! who have acted extravagantly against 
 their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah; 
 surely Allah forgives the faults altogether; surely He is 
 the Forgiving the Merciful.

 54. And return to your Lord time after time and submit to 
 Him before there comes to you the punishment, then you shall 
 not be helped.

 SS. And follow the best that has been revealed to you from 
 your Lord before there comes to you the punishment all of a 
 sudden while you do not even perceive;

 56. Lest a soul should say: O woe to me! for what I fell 
 short of my duty to Allah, and most surely I was of those 
 who laughed to scorn;

 57. Or it should say: Had Allah guided me, I would certainly 
 have been of those who guard (against evil);

 58. Or it should say when it sees the punishment: Were there

 only a returning for me, I should be of the doers of good.

 59. Aye! My communications came to you, but you rejected 
 them, and you were proud and you were one of the 

 60. And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who 
 lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened. Is there 
 not in hell an abode for the proud?

 61. And Allah shall deliver those who guard (against evil) 
 with their achievement; evil shall not touch them, nor shall 
 they grieve.

 62. Allah is the Creator of every thing and He has charge 
 over every thing.

 63. His are the treasures of the heavens and the earth; and 
 (as for) those who disbelieve in the communications of 
 Allah, these it is that are the losers.

 64. Say: What! Do you then bid me serve others than Allah, O 
 ignorant men?

 65. And certainly, it has been revealed to you and to those 
 before you: Surely if you associate (with Allah), your work 
 would certainly come to naught and you would certainly be of 
 the losers.

 66. Nay! but serve Allah alone and be of the thankful.

 67. And they have not honored Allah with the honor that is 
 due to Him; and the whole earth shall be in His grip on the 
 day of resurrection and the heavens rolled up in His right 
 hand; glory be to Him, and may He be exalted above what they 
 associate (with Him).

 68. And the trumpet shall be blown, so all those that are in 
 the heavens and all those that are in the earth shall swoon, 
 except such as Allah please; then it shall be blown again, 
 then lo! they shall stand up awaiting.

 69. And the earth shall beam with the light of its Lord, and 
 the Book shall be laid down, and the prophets and the 
 witnesses shall be brought up, and judgment shall be given 
 between them with justice, and they shall not be dealt with 

 70. And every soul shall be paid back fully what it has 
 done, and He knows best what they do.

 71. And those who disbelieve shall be driven to hell in 
 companies; until, when they come to it, its doors shall be 
 opened, and the keepers of it shall say to them: Did not 
 there come to you apostles from among you reciting to you 
 the communications of your Lord and warning you of the 
 meeting of this day of yours? They shall say: Yea! But the 
 sentence of punishment was due against the unbelievers.

 72. It shall be said: Enter the gates of hell to abide 
 therein; so evil is the abode of the proud.

 73. And those who are careful of (their duty to) their Lord 
 shall be conveyed to the garden in companies; until when 
 they come to it, and its doors shall be opened, and the 
 keepers of it shall say to them: Peace be on you, you shall 
 be happy; therefore enter it to abide.

 74. And they shall say: (All) praise is due to Allah, Who 
 has made good to us His promise, and He has made us inherit 
 the land; we may abide in the garden where we please; so 
 goodly is the reward of the workers.

 75. And you shall see the angels going round about the 
 throne glorifying the praise of their Lord; and judgment 
 shall be given between them with justice, and it shall be 
 said: All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
