Bismillāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm

Beginning is with Allah's personal name Ar-Rahman Who is The Fountain of Infinite Mercy. [Note]It should be remembered that it is not the written text/part/Ayah of سُورة and hence it is never numbered. For convenience of those readers who are already believers, this is traditionally printed since it is commanded in the Qur'an to read/recite with the Name of Sustainer Lord, The Creator with the exception of the ninth Sura.

1 "There have come upon man a space of time when he was not a thing worth mentioning."

2 "We created man from a sperm of mixtures, that We might test him, wherefore We made him hearing, seeing."

3 "We showed him the way, then he is either thankful or ingrate."

12 "And shall recompense them for that which they patiently bare with a Garden and silken garment."

13 "Reclining therein upon couches, they shall behold therein neither sun nor hurting cold."

14 "And close upon them will be the shades thereof, and low will hang the clusters thereof greatly."

15 "And brought round amongst them will be vessels of silver and also goblets of glass."

17 "And therein they shall be given to drink of a cup whereof the admixture will be ginger."

18 "From a fountain therein, named 'Salsabil'."

19 "And there shall go round unto them youths ever-young. When you see them they will look like scattered pearls."

20 "And when you look them you shall see there bliss and a dominion magnificent."

21 "Upon them shall be garments of fine green silk and of brocades, and adorned they shall be with bracelets of silver, and their Lord shall give them drink a beverage pure."

22 "This is for you by way of recompense, and your endeavor have been accepted."

23 "It is We Who have revealed to you the Quran, a gradual revelation."

24 "Therefore wait patiently for the command of your Lord, and obey not from among them a sinner or an ungrateful one."

25 "And remember the name of your Lord in the morning and in the evening."
