1 "a-l-m"

2 "The revelation of the book, there is no doubt in it, is from the Lord of the worlds."

3 "Or do they say he has forged it? No, it is the truth from our Lord so that you may warn a people to whom no warner has come before you, that they may be guided."

4 "God is He Who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six days, and He is established on the throne, you have not besides Him a guardian or an intercessor, will you not then mind?"

5 "He orders the affair from the heaven to the earth, then it will ascend to Him in a day the measure of which is a thousand years as you count."

6 "Such is the Knower of the unseen and the seen, the mighty, the merciful."

7 "Who made beautiful everything that He created, and He began the creation of man from dust."

8 "Then He made his progeny of an extract, of worthless water."

9 "Then He made him complete and breathed into him of His spirit, and gave you ears and eyes and hearts, little it is that you give thanks."

10 "And they say: when we are lost in the earth, shall we then be in a new creation? No, in the meeting of their Lord they disbelieve."

11 "Say: the angel of death, who is given charge of you, will cause you to die, then to your Lord you will be returned."

12 "And if you could see the guilty hanging their heads before their Lord! 'Our Lord, we have seen and heard, now return us, that we may do righteousness, for we have sure faith."

13 "And if We had wanted, We could have given every soul its guidance, but the word from Me was just, I will certainly fill hell with the jinn and men together."

14 "So taste, because you forgot the meeting of this Day of yours surely We forsake you, and taste the eternal torment for what you did."

15 "Only they believe in Our messages who, when they are reminded of them, fall down prostrate and celebrate the praise of their Lord, and they are not proud."

16 "They forsake their beds, pray before their Lord in fear and in hope, and they spend out of what we have given them."

17 "So no soul knows what cheerfulness for eyes hidden for them a reward for what they did."

18 "Is he then, who is a believer, like him who is a sinner? They are not equal."

19 "As for those who believe and do good deeds, for them are gardens, a resort, an entertainment for what they did."

20 "And as for those who sinned, their resort is the fire, whenever they try to come out, they are returned back, and it is said to them: taste the torment of the fire, which you called a lie."

21 "And certainly We will make them taste the nearer punishment before the greater punishment, that they may turn."

22 "And who is more unjust than he who is reminded of the messages of his Lord, then he turns away from them? Surely We will take vengeance on the sinners."

23 "And We indeed gave Moses the book, so doubt not the meeting with Him, and We made it a guide for the Children of Israel."

24 "And We made from among them leaders to guide by Our command when they were patient, and they were sure of Our signs."

25 "Surely your Lord will judge between them on the day of resurrection concerning that wherein they do dispute."

26 "Is it not clear to them how many of the generations, in whose dwellings they walk over, We destroyed before them? Surely there are signs in this, will they not then hear?"

27 "Have they not seen that We drive the water to a barren land, then We bring forth thereby crops, of which their cattle and they themselves eat, will they not then see?"

28 "And they say: when will this victory come, if you are truthful?"

29 "Say: On the day of victory the faith of those who disbelieve will not profit them, nor will they be respired."

30 "So turn away from them and wait, surely they too are waiting."
