the angels glorify the praises of their Lord, and ask for forgiveness

as for those who take as Auliya (guardians, supporters, helpers,
protectors, etc.) others besides Him (i.e. they take false deities other
than Allah (as) protectors, and they worship them) Allah is Hafeez
(Protector) over them (i.e. takes care of their deeds and will
recompense them), and you (O Muhammad SAW) are not a Wakeel (guardian or
a disposer of their affairs) over them (to protect their deeds, etc.).
thus We have inspired unto you (O Muhammad SAW) a Quran (in Arabic)
that you may warn the Mother of the Towns (Makkah) and all around it.
And warn of the Day of Assembling, of which there is no doubt, when a
party will be in Paradise (those who believed in Allah and followed what
Allahs Messenger SAW brought them) and a party in the blazing Fire
(Hell) (those who disbelieved in Allah and followed not what Allahs
Messenger SAW brought them)
if Allah had willed, He could have made them one nation, but He admits
whom He wills to His Mercy. And the Zalimoon (polytheists and
wrong-doers, etc.) will have neither a Walee (protector) nor a helper.
have they taken (for worship) Auliya (guardians, supporters, helpers,
protectors, etc.) besides Him? But Allah, He Alone is the Walee
(Protector, etc.). And it is He Who gives life to the dead, and He is
Able to do all things.
in whatsoever you differ, the decision thereof is with Allah (He is the
ruling Judge). (And say O Muhammad SAW to these polytheists:) Such is
Allah, my Lord in Whom I put my trust, and to Him I turn in all of my
affairs and in repentance.
Creator of the heavens and the earth. He has made for you mates from
yourselves, and for the cattle (also) mates. By this means He creates
you (in the wombs). There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the
All-Hearer, the All-Seer.
Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth, He enlarges provision
for whom He wills, and straitens (it for whom He wills). Verily! He is
the All-Knower of everything.
(Allah) has ordained for you the same religion (Islam) which He
ordained for Nooh (Noah), and that which We have inspired in you (O
Muhammad SAW), and that which We ordained for Ibraheem (Abraham), Moosa
(Moses) and Iesa (Jesus) saying you should establish religion (i.e. to
do what it orders you to do practically), and make no divisions in it
(religion) (i.e. various sects in religion). Intolerable for the
Mushrikoon , is that to which you (O Muhammad SAW) call them. Allah
chooses for Himself whom He wills, and guides unto Himself who turns to
Him in repentance and in obedience.
they divided not till after knowledge had come to them, through selfish
transgression between themselves. And had it not been for a Word that
went forth before from your Lord for an appointed term, the matter would
have been settled between them. And verily, those who were made to
inherit the Scripture (i.e. the Taurah (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel))
after them (i.e. Jews and Christians) are in grave doubt concerning it
(i.e. Allahs true religion Islam or the Quran).

(people) (O Muhammad SAW), and Istaqim ((i.e. stand firm and straight on
Islamic Monotheism by performing all that is ordained by Allah (good
deeds, etc.), and by abstaining from all that is forbidden by Allah
(sins and evil deeds, etc.)), as you are commanded, and follow not their
desires but say: "I believe in whatsoever Allah has sent down of the
Book (all the holy Books, this Quran and the Books of the old from the
Taurat (Torah), or the Injeel (Gospel) or the Pages of Ibrahim
(Abraham)) and I am commanded to do justice among you, Allah is our Lord
and your Lord. For us our deeds and for you your deeds. There is no
dispute between us and you. Allah will assemble us (all), and to Him is
the final return.
those who dispute concerning Allah (His Religion of Islamic Monotheism,
with which Muhammad SAW has been sent), after it has been accepted (by
the people), of no use is their dispute before their Lord, and on them
is wrath, and for them will be a severe torment(1) .

Balance (i.e. to act justly). And what can make you know that perhaps
the Hour is close at hand?
who believe not therein seek to hasten it, while those who believe are
fearful of it, and know that it is the very truth. Verily, those who
dispute concerning the Hour are certainly in error far away.

them a religion which Allah has not allowed. And had it not been for a
decisive Word (gone forth already), the matter would have been judged
between them. And verily, for the Zalimoon (polytheists and
wrong-doers), there is a painful torment.

wrong-doers, etc.) fearful of that which they have earned, and it
(Allahs Torment) will surely befall them, while those who believe (in
the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous deeds (will
be) in the flowering meadows of the Gardens (Paradise), having what they
wish from their Lord. That is the supreme Grace, (Paradise).
is (the Paradise) whereof Allah gives glad tidings to His slaves who
believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous
good deeds. Say (O Muhammad SAW): "No reward do I ask of you for this
except to be kind to me for my kinship with you." And whoever earns a
good righteous deed, We shall give him an increase of good in respect
thereof. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to appreciate (the
deeds of those who are obedient to Him).
say they: "He has invented a lie against Allah?" If Allah willed, He
could have sealed your heart (so that you forget all that you know of
the Quran). And Allah wipes out falsehood, and establishes the truth
(Islam) by His Word (this Quran). Verily, He knows well what (the
secrets) are in the breasts (of mankind).
|25||And He it is Who accepts repentance from His slaves, and forgives sins, and He knows what you do.
He answers (the invocation of) those who believe (in the Oneness of
Allah Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous good deeds, and gives them
increase of His Bounty. And as for the disbelievers, theirs will be a

surely rebel in the earth, but He sends down by measure as He wills.

their death, and dispersion of their bodies) whenever He will.

you have brought to them). We have not sent you (O Muhammad SAW) as a
