1-30 | 31-60 | 61-90 | 91-120 | 121-128

1. The affair of Allah cometh, so seek not to hasten it. Hallowed be He and Exalted above that which they associate.
2. He sendeth down the angels with the spirit by His command upon whomsoever of his bondmen He willeth: warn that there is no god but I, wherefore fear Me.
3. He hath created the heavens and the earth with a purpose. Exalted is He above that which they associate.
4. He hath created man from a drop, and Lo! he is a disputer open.
5. And the cattle! He hath created them. For you in them there is warmth and other profits and of them ye eat.
6. And for you there is beauty in them as ye drive them at eventide and as ye drive them out to pasture.
7. And they bear Your loads to a city Which ye could not reach except with travail of souls; verily your Lord is Kind, Merciful.
8. And He hath created horses and mules and asses that ye may ride there on, and as an adornment; and He createth that which ye know not.
9. And upon Allah is the direction of the way, and thereof is some crooked; and had He willed He would have guided you all.
10. He it is who sendeth down from the heaven water for you, wherefrom is drinking and wherefrom are trees whereas ye pasture your herds.
11. He groweth for you thereby the corn and olives and date-palms and grapes and all kinds of fruit. Verily therein is a sign for a people who ponder.
12. And He hath subiected for you the night and the day and the sun and the moon, and the stars are subjected by His command. Verily therein are signs for a people who understand.
13. And He hath subjected for you whatsoever He hath multiplied for you on the earth of various kinds. Verily therein is a sign for a people who receive admonition.
14. And He it is who hath subjected the sea that ye may eat thereout flesh fresh and bring forth therefrom ornaments that ye wear. And thou beholdest ships ploughing therein, and it is in order that ye may seek of His grace, and that haply ye may give thanks.
15. And He hath cast on the earth firm mountains lest it move away with you, and rivers and paths that haply ye may be directed.
16. And also landmarks; and by the stars they are guided.
17. Is there one who createth like unto one who createth not? Will ye not then be admonished?
18. And if ye would count the favours of Allah ye could not compute them verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
19. And Allah knoweth that which ye keep secret and that which ye publish.
20. And those upon whom they call beside Allahls have not created aught, and are themselves created.
21. Dead are they, not alive; and they perceive not when they will be raised up.
22. God of you all is One God; so those who believe not in the Hereafter-their hearts are perverse and they are stiff-necked.
23. Undoubtedly Allah knoweth that which they keep secret and that which they publish; verily He loveth not the stiff- necked.
24. And when it is said unto them: what is it that your Lord hath sent down? they say: fables of the ancient.
25. That they may bear their burthens in full on the Judgment-Day and also some of the burthens of those whom they have led astray without knowledge. Lo! vile is that which they shall bear!
26. Surely there plotted those before them, but Allah came upon their structures from the foundations, so the roof fell down upon them from above them and the torment came upon them whence they perceived not.
27. Then on the Judgment-Day He will humiliate them and say: where are My associates regarding whom ye have been causing cleavage? Those who have been vouchsafed knowledge will say: verily the humiliation to-day and ill-hap are upon the infidels-
28. Those whom the angels cause to die while they are wronging them selves, and then they proffer submission: we have not been working any evil. Yea! verily Allah is the Knower of that which ye have been working.
29. Wherefore enter the portals of Hell as abiders therein. Vile is the abode of the arrogant
30. And when it is said unto those who fear: what is it that your Lord hath sent down? They say: that which is better. For those who do good is good in this world, and the dwelling of the Hereafter is better. Excellent is the dwelling of the God-fearing!
