This Book hath insight for mankind, and a Guidance and Mercy to a people who are firm in faith.
Deem they whose gettings are only evil, that we will deal with them as with those who believe and work righteousness, so that their lives and deaths shall be alike? Ill do they judge.
In all truth hath God created the Heavens and the Earth, that he may reward every one as he shall have wrought; and they shall not be wronged.
What thinkest thou? He who hath made a God of his passions, and whom God causeth wilfully to err, and whose ears and whose heart he hath sealed up, and over whose sight he hath placed a veilwho, after his rejection by God, shall guide such a one? Will ye not then be warned?
And they say, There is only this our present life: we die and we live, and nought but time destroyeth us. But in this they have no knowledge: it is merely their own conceit.
And when our clear signs are recited to them, their only argument is to say, Bring back our fathers, if ye speak the truth.
Say: God giveth you life, then causeth you to die: then will He assemble you on the day of resurrection: there is no doubt of it: but most men have not this knowledge.
And Gods is the kingdom of the Heavens and of the Earth; and on the day when the Hour shall arrive, on that day shall the despisers6 perish.
And thou shalt see every nation KNEELING: to its own book shall every nation be summoned:This day shall ye be repaid as ye have wrought.
This our Book will speak of you with truth: therein have we written down whatever ye have done.
As to those who have believed and wrought righteously, into his mercy shall their Lord cause them to enter. This shall be undoubted bliss!
But as to the InfidelsWere not my signs recited to you? but ye proudly scorned them, and became a sinful people.
And when it was said, Verily the Promise of God is truth; and as to the Hour, there is no doubt of it; ye said, We know not what the hour iswe conceive it a mere conceit,we have no assurance of it.
And the evils they have wrought shall rise up into their view, and that at which they mocked shall hem them in on every side.
And it shall be said to them, This day will we forget you as ye forgat your meeting with us this day, and your abode shall be the fire, and none shall there be to succour you:
This, because ye received the signs of God with mockery, and this present life deceived you. On that day therefore they shall not come out from it; and they shall not be asked to win the favour of God.
Praise then be to God, Lord of the Heavens and Lord of the Earth; the Lord of the worlds!
And His be the greatness in the Heavens and on the Earth; for He is the Mighty, the Wise!
