In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things,
[67.2] Who created death and life that He may try you-- which of you is
best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving,
[67.3] Who created
the seven heavens one above another; you see no incongruity in the creation of
the Beneficent God; then look again, can you see any disorder?
Then turn back the eye again and again; your look shall '~ come back to you confused
while it is fatigued.
[67.5] And certainly We have adorned this lower
heaven with ( lamps and We have made these missiles for the Shaitans, and We have
prepared for them the chastisement of burning.
[67.6] And for those
who disbelieve in their Lord is the punishment of hell, and evil is the resort.
[67.7] When they shall be cast therein, they shall hear a loud moaning
of it as it heaves,
[67.8] Almost bursting for fury. Whenever a group
is cast into it, its keeper shall ask them: Did there not come to you a warner?
[67.9] They shall say: Yea! indeed there came to us a warner, but we rejected
(him) and said: Allah has not revealed anything, you are only in a great error.
[67.10] And they shall say: Had we but listened or pondered, we should
not have been among the inmates of the burning fire.
[67.11] So they
shall acknowledge their sins, but far will be (forgiveness) from the inmates of
the burning fire.
[67.12] (As for) those who fear their Lord in secret,
they shall surely have forgiveness and a great reward.
conceal your word or manifest it; surely He is Cognizant of what is in the hearts.
[67.14] Does He not know, Who created? And He is the Knower of the subtleties,
[67.15] He it is Who made the earth smooth for you, therefore
go about in the spacious sides thereof, and eat of His sustenance, and to Him
is the return after death.
[67.16] Are you secure of those in the heaven
that He should not make the earth to swallow you up? Then lo! it shall be in a
state of commotion.
[67.17] Or are you secure of those in the heaven
that He should not send down upon you a punishment? Then shall you know how was
[67.18] And certainly those before them rejected (the truth),
then how was My disapproval.
[67.19] Have they not seen the birds above
them expanding (their wings) and contracting (them)? What is it that withholds
them save the Beneficent God? Surely He sees everything.
who is it that will be a host for you to assist you besides the Beneficent God?
The unbelievers are only in deception.
[67.21] Or who is it that will
give you sustenance if He should withhold His sustenance? Nay! they persist in
disdain and aversion.
[67.22] What! is he who goes prone upon his face
better guided or he who walks upright upon a straight path?
Say: He it is Who brought you into being and made for you the ears and the eyes
and the hearts: little is it that you give thanks.
[67.24] Say: He
it is Who multiplied you in the earth and to Him you shall be gathered.
And they say: When shall this threat be (executed) if you are truthful?
Say: The knowledge (thereof is only with Allah and I am only a plain warner.=
[67.27] But when they shall see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve
shall be sorry, and it shall be said; This is that which you used to call for.
[67.28] Say: Have you considered if Allah should destroy me and those with
me-- rather He will have mercy on us; yet who will protect the unbelievers from
a painful punishment?
[67.29] Say: He is the Beneficent God, we believe
in Him and on Him do we rely, so you shall come to know who it is that is in clear
[67.30] Say: Have you considered if your water should go down,
who is it then that will bring you flowing water?
