revelation of the Book (this Quran) is from the Lord of the Alameen
(mankind, jinns and all that exists) in which there is not doubt!
say they: "He (Muhammad SAW) has fabricated it?" Nay, it is the truth
from your Lord, that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come
before you (O Muhammad SAW), in order that they may be guided.
it is He Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all that is
between them in six Days. Then He Istawa (rose over) the Throne (in a
manner that suits His Majesty). You (mankind) have none, besides Him, as
a Walee (protector or helper etc.) or an intercessor. Will you not then
remember (or be admonished)?

will go up to Him, in one Day, the space whereof is a thousand years of
your reckoning (i.e. reckoning of our present worlds time).

|8||Then He made his offspring from semen of worthless water (male and female sexual discharge).
He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul
(created by Allah for that person), and He gave you hearing (ears),
sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give!
they say: "When we are (dead and become) lost in the earth, shall we
indeed be recreated anew?" Nay, but they deny the Meeting with their

if you only could see when the Mujrimoon (criminals, disbelievers,
polytheists, sinners, etc.) shall hang their heads before their Lord
(saying): "Our Lord! We have now seen and heard, so send us back (to the
world), we will do righteous good deeds. Verily! We now believe with

guidance, but the Word from Me took effect (about evildoers), that I
will fill Hell with jinn and mankind together.

Meeting of this Day of yours, (and) surely! We too will forget you, so
taste you the abiding torment for what you used to do.

revelations, etc.), who, when they are reminded of them fall down
prostrate, and glorify the Praises of their Lord, and they are not

for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allah Islamic Monotheism) and
do righteous good deeds, for them are Gardens (Paradise) as an
entertainment, for what they used to do.
as for those who are Fasiqoon (disbelievers and disobedient to Allah),
their abode will be the Fire, every time they wish to get away
therefrom, they will be put back thereto, and it will be said to them:
"Taste you the torment of the Fire which you used to deny."
verily, We will make them taste of the near torment (i.e. the torment
in the life of this world, i.e. disasters, calamities, etc.) prior to
the supreme torment (in the Hereafter), in order that they may (repent
and) return (i.e. accept Islam).
who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the Ayat (proofs,
evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of his Lord, then
he turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution from the
Mujrimoon (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners, etc.).
indeed We gave Moosa (Moses) the Scripture (the Taurat (Torah)). So be
not you in doubt of meeting him (i.e.when you met Moosa (Moses) during
the night of AlIsra and AlMiraj over the heavens). And We made it (the
Taurat (Torah)) a guide to the Children of Israel.
We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance

any vegetation, and therewith bring forth crops providing food for their
cattle and themselves? Will they not then see?
say: "When will this AlFath (Decision) be (between us and you, i.e. the
Day of Resurrection), if you are telling the truth?"
"On the Day of AlFath (Decision), no profit will it be to those who
disbelieve if they (then) believe! Nor will they be granted a respite."
