064 LossAndGain

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

 1. Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth 
 declares the glory of Allah; to Him belongs the kingdom, and 
 to Him is due (all) praise, and He has power over all 

 2. He it is Who created you, but one of you is an unbeliever 
 and another of you is a believer; and Allah sees what you 

 3. He created the heavens and the earth with truth, and He 
 formed you, then made goodly your forms, and to Him is the 
 ultimate resort.

 4. He knows what is in the heavens and the earth, and He 
 knows what you hide and what you manifest;and Allah is 
 Cognizant of what is in the hearts.

 S. Has there not come to you the story of those who 
 disbelieved before, then tasted the evil result of their 
 conduct, and they had a painful punishment?

 6. That is because there came to them their apostles with 
 clear arguments, but they said: Shall mortals guide us? So 
 they disbelieved and turned back, and Allah does not stand 
 in need (of anything), and Allah is Self-sufficient, 

 7. Those who disbelieve think that they shall never be 
 raised. Say: Aye! by my Lord! you shall most certainly be 
 raised, then you shall most certainly be informed of what 
 you did; and that is easy to Allah.

 8. Therefore believe in Allah and His Apostle and the Light 
 which We have revealed; and Allah is Aware of what you do.

 9. On the day that He will gather you for the day of 
 gathering, that is the day of loss and gain; and whoever 
 believes in Allah and does good, He will remove from him his 
 evil and cause him to enter gardens beneath which rivers 
 flow, to abide therein forever; that is the great 

 10. And (as for) those who disbelieve and reject Our 
 communications, they are the inmates of the fire, to abide 
 therein and evil is the resort.

 11. No affliction comes about but by Allah's permission; and 
 whoever believes in Allah, He guides aright his heart; and 
 Allah is Cognizant of all things.

 12. And obey Allah and obey the Apostle, but if you turn 
 back, then upon Our Apostle devolves only the clear delivery 
 (of the message).

 13. Allah, there is no god but He; and upon Allah, then, let 
 the believers rely.

 14. O you who believe! surely from among your wives and your 
 children there is an enemy to you; therefore beware of them; 
 and if you pardon and forbear and forgive, then surely Allah 
 is Forgiving, Merciful.

 15. Your possessions and your children are only a trial, and 
 Allah it is with Whom is a great reward.

 16. Therefore be careful of (your duty to) Allah as much as 
 you can, and hear and obey and spend, it is better for your 
 souls; and whoever is saved from the greediness of his soul, 
 these it is that are the successful.

 17. If you set apart for Allah a goodly portion, He will 
 double it for you and forgive you; and Allah is the 
 Multiplier (of rewards), Forbearing,

 18. The Knower of the unseen and the seen, the Mighty, the
