25b. Al-Furqan (51 to 77)
If We willed , We could raise up a warner in every village ., So obey not the disbelievers , but strive against them …
If We willed , We could raise up a warner in every village .
So obey not the disbelievers , but strive against them herewith with a great endeavor .
And He it is Who hath given independence to the two seas ( though they meet ) ; one palatable , sweet , and the other saltish , bitter ; and hath set a bar and a forbidding ban between them .
And He it is Who hath created man from water , and hath appointed for him kindred by blood and kindred by marriage ; for thy Lord is ever Powerful .
Yet they worship instead of Allah that which can neither benefit them nor hurt them . The disbeliever was ever a partisan against his Lord .
And We have sent thee ( O Muhammad ) only as a bearer of good tidings and a warner .
Say : I ask of you no reward for this , save that whoso will may choose a way unto his Lord .
And trust thou in the Living One Who dieth not , and hymn His praise . He sufficeth as the Knower of His bondmen ' s sins ,
Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six Days , then He mounted the Throne . The Beneficent! Ask any one informed concerning Him!
And when it is said unto them: Prostrate to the Beneficent! they say: And what is the Beneficent? Are we to prostrate to whatever thou (Muhammad) biddest us? And it increaseth aversion in them.
Blessed be He Who hath placed in the heaven mansions of the stars , and hath placed therein a great lamp and a moon giving light!
And He it is Who hath appointed night and day in succession , for him who desireth to remember , or desireth thankfulness .
The ( faithful ) slaves of the Beneficent are they who walk upon the earth modestly , and when the foolish ones address them answer : Peace ;
And who spend the night before their Lord , prostrate and standing ,
And who say : Our Lord! Avert from us the doom of hell ; lo! the doom thereof is anguish ;
Lo! it is wretched as abode and station ;
And those who , when they spend , are neither prodigal nor grudging ; and there is ever a firm station between the two ;
And those who cry not unto any other god along with Allah , nor take the life which Allah hath forbidden save in ( course of ) justice , nor commit adultery and whoso doeth this shall pay the penalty ;
The doom will be doubled for him on the Day of Resurrection , and he will abide therein disdained for ever ;
Save him who repenteth and believeth and doth righteous work ; as for such , Allah will change their evil deeds to good deeds . Allah is ever Forgiving , Merciful .
And whosoever repenteth and doeth good , he verily repenteth toward Allah with true repentance .
And those who will not witness vanity , but when they pass near senseless play , pass by with dignity .
And those who , when they are reminded of the revelations of their Lord , fall not deaf and blind thereat .
And who say : Our Lord! Vouchsafe us comfort of our wives and of our offspring , and make us patterns for ( all ) those who ward off ( evil ) .
They will be awarded the high place forasmuch as they were steadfast , and they will meet therein with welcome and the word of peace ,
Abiding there for ever . Happy is it as abode and station!
Say ( O Muhammad , unto the disbelievers ) : My Lord would not concern himself with you but for your prayer . But now ye have denied ( the Truth ) , therefor there will be judgment .
