Exalted in Might, the Wise.
We have sent down to you the Book, [O Muúammad], in truth. So worship Allāh, [being] sincere to Him in religion.
for Allāh is the pure religion. And those who
take protectors besides Him [say], "We only worship them that they may
bring us nearer to Allāh in position."
Indeed, Allāh will judge between them concerning
that over which they differ. Indeed, Allāh does
not guide he who is a liar and [confirmed] disbeliever.

chosen from what He creates whatever He willed. Exalted is He; He is Allāh, the One, the Prevailing.

you from the grazing livestock eight mates. He creates you in the wombs of your
mothers, creation after creation, within three darknesses. That is Allāh, your Lord; to Him belongs dominion. There is
no deity except Him, so how are you averted?
you disbelieve – indeed, Allāh is Free from
need of you. And He does not approve for His servants disbelief. And if you are
grateful, He approves it for you; and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden
of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you about what
you used to do. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts.
when adversity touches man, he calls upon his Lord, turning to Him [alone];
then when He bestows on him a favor from Himself, he forgets Him whom he called
upon before, and he attributes to Allāh equals
to mislead [people] from His way. Say, "Enjoy your disbelief for a little;
indeed, you are of the companions of the Fire."

standing [in prayer], fearing the Hereafter and hoping for the mercy of his
Lord, [like one who does not]? Say, "Are those who know equal to those who
do not know?" Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding.
"O My servants who have believed, fear your Lord. For those who do good in
this world is good, and the earth of Allāh is
spacious. Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account."
"Indeed, I have been commanded to worship Allāh,
[being] sincere to Him in religion.
I have been commanded to be the first [among you] of the Muslims."
"Indeed I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a

Him in my religion,

ones who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection.
Unquestionably, that is the manifest loss."

23. Allāh has sent down the best statement: a consistent
Book wherein is reiteration. The skins shiver therefrom of those who fear their
Lord; then their skins and their hearts relax at the remembrance of Allāh. That is the guidance of Allāh by which He guides whom He wills. And one whom Allāh leaves astray – for him there is no guide.

29. Allāh presents an example: a slave owned by
quarreling partners and another belonging exclusively to one man – are they
equal in comparison? Praise be to Allāh! But
most of them do not know.

if you asked them, "Who created the heavens and the earth?" they
would surely say, "Allāh." Say,
"Then have you considered what you invoke besides Allāh?
If Allāh intended me harm, are they removers of
His harm; or if He intended me mercy, are they withholders of His mercy?"
Say, "Sufficient for me is Allāh; upon Him

42. Allāh takes the souls at the time of their death, and
those that do not die [He takes] during their sleep. Then He keeps those for
which He has decreed death and releases the others for a specified term. Indeed
in that are signs for a people who give thought.

earth. Then to Him you will be returned."
when Allāh is mentioned alone, the hearts of
those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion, but when those

earth, Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, You will judge between your
servants concerning that over which they used to differ."
if those who did wrong had all that is in the earth entirely and the like of it
with it, they would [attempt to] ransom themselves thereby from the worst of
the punishment on the Day of Resurrection. And there will appear to them from Allāh that which they had not taken into account.
there will appear to them the evils they had earned, and they will be enveloped
by what they used to ridicule.
