In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
ALL that is in the Heavens and in the Earth praiseth God, and He is the Mighty, the Wise!
His the Kingdom of the Heavens and of the Earth; He maketh alive and killeth; and He hath power over all things!
He is the first and the last; the Seen and the Hidden;2 and He knoweth all things!
It is He who in six days created the Heavens and the Earth, then ascended His throne. He knoweth that which entereth the earth, and that which goeth forth from it, and what cometh down from Heaven, and what mounteth up to it; and wherever ye are, He is with you; and God beholdeth all your actions!
His the kingdom of the Heavens and the Earth; and to God shall all things return!
Believe in God and his apostle, and bestow in alms of that whereof God hath made you heirs: for whoever among you believe and give almstheirs shall be a great recompense.
What hath come to you that ye believe not in God, although the apostle exhorteth you to believe in your Lord, and He hath accepted your allianceif ye are true believers?
He it is who hath sent down clear tokens upon His servant, that He may bring you out of darkness into light; and truly, Kind, Merciful to you is God.
And what hath come to you that ye expend not for the cause of God? since the heritage of the Heavens and of the Earth is Gods only! Those among you who contributed before the victory, and fought, shall be differently treated from certain others among you! Such shall have a nobler grade than those who contributed and fought after it. But a goodly recompense hath God promised to all; and God is fully informed of your actions.
One day thou shalt see the believers, men and women, with their light running before them, and on their right hand.3 The angels shall say to them, Good tidings for you this day of gardens beneath whose shades the rivers flow, in which ye shall abide for ever! This the great bliss!
On that day the hypocrites, both men and women, shall say to those who believe, Tarry for us, that we may kindle our light at yours. It shall be said, Return ye back, and seek light for yourselves. But between them shall be set a wall with a gateway, within which shall be the Mercy, and in front, without it, the Torment. They shall cry to them, Were we not with you? They shall say, Yes! but ye led yourselves into temptation, and ye delayed, and ye doubted, and the good things ye craved deceived you, till the doom of God arrived:and the deceiver deceived you in regard to God.
On that day, therefore, no ransom shall be taken from you or from those who believe not:your abode the fire!This shall be your master!4 and wretched the journey thither!
Hath not the time come, for those who believe, to humble their hearts at the warning of God and at the truth which he hath sent down? and that they be not as those to whom the Scriptures were given
