Say: God is One, The Eternal God. He begot none, nor was He begotten. None is equal to Him.
Mankind, worship your Lord, who has created you and those before you so that you may ward off evil; who has made the earth a couch for you and the sky a canopy; and has sent down water from the sky, thereby producing fruits for you to eat. So do not knowingly set up rivals to God.
God forgives not that partners should be ascribed unto Him. He forgives whom He will all other sins. Whoever ascribes partners unto God has strayed far from the truth.
GOD- THE SUBLIME, THE TREMENDOUS
God – there is no deity save Him, the Ever-living, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. Who can intercede with Him save by His leave? He knows what lies before humans and what is after them, and they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He wills. His throne comprises both the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime the Tremendous.
Your Lord is God, who created the skies and the earth in six periods, then ascended His Throne. He throws the veil of night over day. Swiftly they follow one another. The sun, moon and stars are subservient by His command. His is the creation, His is the command. Blessed be God, the Lord of the worlds. Call on your Lord humbly and secretly; He does not love the transgressors. Do not work corruption in the land after things have been set right. Pray to Him fearfully, eagerly. God's mercy is within reach of the righteous. He sends forth the winds as harbingers of His mercy till, when they bear a heavy cloud, We drive it to a dead land and cause rain to descend thereon, bringing forth all manner of fruit. Thus We will raise the dead to life; perchance you will take heed. And as for the good land; its vegetation comes forth by the leave of its Lord. But poor and scant are the fruits which spring from barren soil. Thus We make plain Our signs for those who render thanks.
IN SPACE AND ON EARTH
So glory be to God morning and evening. Praise be to Him in space and on earth, at twilight and at noon. He brings forth the living from the dead, and the dead from the living, and He revives the earth after it is dead. Likewise you shall be raised to life. And of His signs is that He created you from dust; now behold you are human beings, ranging widely. And of His signs is that He created for you, of yourselves, spouses that you might find repose in them and has planted love and kindness in your hearts. Surely there are signs in this for people who reflect. And of His signs are the creation of the heavens and the earth and the variety of your tongues and hues. Surely there are signs in this for those who know. And of His signs is your slumbering by night and day, and your seeking of His bounty. Surely in that are signs for those who hear. The lightning which He shows you for fear and hope is yet another of His signs, He sends down water from the sky, thereby reviving the earth after it is dead. Surely in this there are signs for a people who understand. Space and the earth are firm by His command; then when He calls you, suddenly, from the earth you shall emerge. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and on earth; all are obedient to Him. He it is who originates creation, then reproduces it, and it is easier for Him, His is the loftiest likeliness in space and on earth. He is the Mighty, the Wise.
THE COSMIC CALL
It is God who splits the grain and the date stone. He brings forth the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. Such is God. How then can you turn away from Him? He splits the sky into dawn. He has made the night for a repose and the sun and the moon for a reckoning. Such is the ordinance of God, the Mighty, the Wise. It is He who has created for you the stars, that you may be guided by them in the darkness of land and sea. We have made plain our signs for people who understand. It is He who sent down water from the sky. With it We bring forth the shoot of every plant and then We have brought forth its green leaf and from it close-compounded grain; and out of the date-palm, from its pollen, dates thick-clustered, ready to the hand; and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, like and unlike one another. Look upon their fruits when they fructify and ripen. Surely in all this are signs for people who believe. Yet they ascribe as partners unto Him the jinn, though He created them, and they impute unto Him sons and daughters without any knowledge. Glory be to Him and exalted be He above what they describe. The Creator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son, when there is for Him no consort; when He created all things and He has knowledge of all things?
LORD OF THE GREAT THRONE
Did you think that We created you in vain and that you would never be returned to Us? Exalted be God, the true Master. There is no deity save Him, the Lord of the great throne. And whoever invokes any other deity besides God—a deity of whose divinity he has no proof—with his Lord alone will be his reckoning. The unbelievers shall never prosper. And say: Lord, forgive and have mercy, for You are the best of those that show mercy.
LOVE FOR GOD
In the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of night and day; in the ships that sail the ocean with cargoes beneficial to men; in the water which God sends down from the sky and with which He revives the dead earth after its death, dispersing in it all kinds of beasts; in the swirling of the winds and in the clouds that are driven between earth and sky; surely in this there are signs for people who understand. Yet there are some people who choose from other beings besides God, as rivals to God, loving them as God alone should be loved - whereas those who believe love God more than all else. If the evil-doers could only see, when they behold the doom, that power lies with God alone and that God is severe in punishment. When those who were followed disown their followers and they behold the doom, and their cords are cut asunder. Those who followed will say, "If only a return were possible for us, we would disown them, as they have disowned us." Thus God will show them their own work as anguish for them. They shall never emerge from the Fire. Mankind, eat of what is in the earth lawful and wholesome, and follow not in the steps of Satan, for he is your sworn enemy. He commands you only to evil and indecency and that you should assert about God what you do not know.
Those who believe and have not obscured their belief with wrong-doing are truly secure and they are rightly guided. Such was the argument with which We furnished Abraham against his people. We raise whom We will to an exalted rank. Your Lord is Wise, All-Knowing. And We gave to him Isaac and Jacob; each one We guided as We had guided Noah before them. And of his progeny David and Solomon, Job and Joseph, Moses and Aaron; thus We reward those who do good. And Zachariah and John, Jesus and Elias; each was of the Righteous. And Ishmael and Elisha, Jonah and Lot, each one We preferred above all beings. And of their fathers and of their offsprings and of their brethren; We elected them and guided them to a straight Path. Such is God's guidance. He bestows it on whom He pleases of His servants. But if they had served other gods besides Him their labours would have been in vain. On them We bestowed the scriptures, wisdom and prophethood. If these disbelieve therein, then We shall entrust them to others who are not disbelievers. These are the ones whom God guided. Follow their guidance, and say; I ask no wage for it; it is but a reminder to all beings.
HEAVEN AND HELL
They underrate the might of God. But on the Day of Resurrection He will hold the entire earth in His grasp and fold up the skies in His right hand. Glory be to Him! Exalted be He above all that they associate. The Trumpet shall be blown and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth shall swoon, save whom God wills. Then it shall be blown a second time and they will stand and look around them. The earth will shine with the light of its Lord and the Book will be set in place. The prophets and witnesses shall be brought in and all shall be judged with fairness: none shall be wronged. Each soul shall be paid in full for what it has wrought, for He is well-aware of what they do. Then the disbelievers will be driven into Hell in companies. When they draw near, its gates will be opened, and its keepers will say to them: "Did not messengers come to you from among yourselves, reciting to you the signs of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this day?" They shall say: "Yes, indeed." And thus the punishment which the unbelievers have been promised shall be fulfilled. It shall be said: "Enter the gates of Hell, to dwell therein forever." Evil is the dwelling-place of the arrogant. Then those who feared their Lord shall be led into heaven in companies to Paradise. When they draw near, its gates will be opened and its keepers shall say: "Peace be upon you! Well you have done. Enter Paradise and dwell therein forever." They will say: "Praise be to God, Who has been true to His promise to us and has made us inherit the land, that we may dwell wherever we wish in Paradise." How excellent is the wage of those that labour. And you will see the angels encircling about the Throne, hymning the praises of their Lord. Mankind will be judged with fairness and it will be said: "Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds."
Perform the prayers at sunset, at nightfall and at dawn; the dawn prayer is witnessed. And pray for a part of the night, an additional duty for you; it may be that your Lord will raise you up to an honorable station.
Be constant in praying at the beginning and the end of the day, and in the night too. Good deeds make amends for sins. That is a reminder for the mindful. Therefore have patience; God will not leave to waste the reward of the righteous.
And when you have performed the prayer, remember God, standing, sitting and lying down. Then, when you are secure, perform the prayer, for prayer is a duty incumbent on the faithful, to be observed at appointed hours.
Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book, and perform the prayer; prayer prevents indecency and the evil. God's remembrance is greatest of all. And God knows what you do.
Be ever mindful of prayers, and of the midmost prayer. And stand obedient to God.
