In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
[35.1] All praise is due to Allah, the Originator of the heavens and
the earth, the Maker of the angels, messengers flying on wings, two, and three,
and four; He increases in creation what He pleases; surely Allah has power over
[35.2] Whatever Allah grants to men of (His) mercy, there
is none to withhold it, and what He withholds there is none to send it forth after
that, and He is the Mighty, the Wise
[35.3] O men! call to mind the
favor of Allah on you; is there any creator besides Allah who gives you sustenance
from the heaven and the earth? There is no god but He; whence are you then turned
[35.4] And if they call you a liar, truly apostles before you
were called liars, and to Allah are all affairs returned.
men! surely the promise of Allah is true, therefore let not the life of this world
deceive you, and let not the archdeceiver deceive you respecting Allah.
Surely the Shaitan is your enemy, so take him for an enemy; he only invites his
party that they may be inmates of the burning 7 (As for) those who disbelieve,
they shall have a severe punishment, and (as for) those who believe and do good,
they shall have forgiveness and a great reward.
[35.8] What! is he
whose evil deed is made fairseeming to him so much so that he considers it good?
Now surely Allah makes err whom He pleases and guides aright whom He pleases,
so let not your soul waste away in grief for them; surely Allah is Cognizant of
what they do
[35.9] And Allah is He Who sends the winds so they raise
a cloud, then We drive it on to a dead country, and therewith We give life to
the earth after its death; even so is the quickening.
desires honor, then to Allah belongs the honor wholly. To Him do ascend the good
words; and the good deeds, lift them up, and (as for) those who plan evil deeds,
they shall have a severe chastisement; and (as for) their plan, it shall perish.
[35.11] And Allah created you of dust, then of the life-germ, then He made
you pairs; and no female bears, nor does she bring forth, except with His knowledge;
and no one whose life is lengthened has his life lengthened, nor is aught diminished
of one's life, but it is all in a book; surely this is easy to Allah.
And the two seas are not alike: the one sweet, that subdues thirst by its excessive
sweetness, pleasant to drink; and the other salt, that burns by its saltness;
yet from each of them you eat fresh flesh and bring forth ornaments which you
wear; and you see the ships cleave through it that you may seek of His bounty
and that you may be grateful.
[35.13] He causes the night to enter
in upon the day, and He causes the day to enter in upon the night, and He has
made subservient (to you) the sun and the moon; each one follows its course to
an appointed time; this is Allah, your Lord, His is the kingdom; and those whom
you call upon besides Him do not control a straw.
[35.14] If you call
on them they shall not hear your call, and even if they could hear they shall
not answer you; and on the resurrection day they will deny your associating them
(with Allah); and none can inform you like the One Who is Aware.
O men! you are they who stand in need of Allah, and Allah is He Who is the Self-sufficient,
the Praised One.
[35.16] If He please, He will take you off and bring
a new generation.
[35.17] And this is not hard to Allah.
And a burdened soul cannot bear the burden of another and if one weighed down
by burden should cry for (another to carry) its burden, not aught of it shall
be carried, even though he be near of kin. You warn only those who fear their
Lord in secret and keep up prayer; and whoever purifies himself, he purifies himself
only for (the good of) his own soul; and to Allah is the eventual coming.
[35.19] And the blind and the seeing are not alike
the darkness and the light,
[35.21] Nor the shade and the heat,
[35.22] Neither are the living and the dead alike. Surely Allah makes whom
He pleases hear, and you cannot make those hear who are m the graves.
You are naught but a warner.
[35.24] Surely We have sent you with the
truth as a bearer of good news and a warner; and there is not a people but a warner
has gone among them.
[35.25] And if they call you a liar, so did those
before them indeed call (their apostles) liars; their apostles had come to them
with clear arguments, and with scriptures, and with the illuminating book. 26
Then did I punish those who disbelieved, so how was the manifestation of My disapproval?
[35.27] Do you not see that Allah sends down water from the cloud, then
We bring forth therewith fruits of various colors; and in the mountains are streaks,
white and red, of various hues and (others) intensely black?
And of men and beasts and cattle are various species of it likewise; those of
His servants only who are possessed of knowledge fear Allah; surely Allah is Mighty,
[35.29] Surely they who recite the Book of Allah and keep
up prayer and spend out of what We have given them secretly and openly, hope for
a gain which will not perish.
[35.30] That He may pay them back fully
their rewards and give them more out of His grace: surely He is Forgiving, Multiplier
[35.31] And that which We have revealed to you of the Book,
that is the truth verifying that which is before it; most surely with respect
to His servants Allah is Aware, Seeing.
[35.32] Then We gave the Book
for an inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants; but of them
is he who makes his soul to suffer a loss, and of them is he who takes a middle
course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah's permission;
this is the great excellence.
[35.33] Gardens of perpetuity, they shall
enter therein; they shad be made to wear therein bracelets of gold and pearls,
and their dress therein shall be silk.
[35.34] And they shall say:
(All) praise is due to Allah, Who has made grief to depart from us; most surely
our Lord is Forgiving, Multiplier of rewards,
[35.35] Who has made
us alight in a house abiding for ever out of . His grace; toil shall not touch
us therein, nor shall fatigue therein afflict us.
[35.34] And (as for)
those who disbelieve, for them is the fire of hell; it shall not be finished with
them entirely so that they should die, nor shall the chastisement thereof be lightened
to them: even thus do We retribute every ungrateful one.
they shall cry therein for succour: O our Lord ! take us out, we will do good
deeds other than those which we used to do. Did We not preserve you alive long
enough, so that he who would be mindful in it should mind? And there came to you
the warner; therefore taste; because for the unjust, there 1S no helper.
Surely Allah is the Knower of what is unseen m the heavens and the earth; surely
He is Cognizant of what IS m the hearts.
[35.39] He it is Who made
you rulers in the land; therefore whoever disbelieves, his unbelief is against
himself; and their unbelief does not increase the disbelievers with their Lord
in anything except hatred; and their unbelief does not increase the disbelievers
m anything except loss.
[35.40] Say: Have you considered your associates
which you call upon besides Allah? Show me what part of the earth they have created,
or have they any share in the heavens; or, have We given them a book so that they
follow a clear argument thereof? Nay, the unjust do not hold out promises one
to another but only to deceive. 41 Surely Allah upholds the heavens and the earth
lest they come to naught; and if they should come to naught, there Is none who
can uphold them after Him; surely He is the Forbearing, the Forgiving.
And they swore by Allah with the strongest of their oaths that if there came to
them a warner they would be better guided than any of the nations; but when there
came to them a warner it increased them in naught but aversion.
(In) behaving proudly in the land and in planning evil; and the evil plans shall
not beset any save the authors of it. Then should they wait for aught except the
way of the former people? For you shall not find any alteration in the course
of Allah; and you shall not find any change in the course of Allah.
Have they not travelled in the land and seen how was the end of those before them
while they were stronger than these in power? And Allah is not such that any thing
in the heavens or in the earth should escape Him; surely He is Knowing, Powerful.
[35.45] And were Allah to punish men for what they earn, He would not leave
on the back of it any creature, but He respites them till an appointed term; so
when their doom shall come, then surely Allah is Seeing with respect to His servants.
