بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِِ

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 "Whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies God. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."

2 "O you who believe, why do you say that which you do not do?"

3 "Most hateful it is with God that you say that which you do not do."

4 "Verily, God loves those who fight in His cause in rows as if they were a solid structure."

5 "And when Moses said to his people: 'O my people, why do you annoy/persecute me while you know certainly that I am the messenger of God to you?', So when they turned away, God turned their hearts away. And God does not guide the people who are the evil-living people."

6 "And when Jesus, son of Mary, said: 'O Children of Israel, I am the messenger of God unto you confirming the Torah which came before me, and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed'. But when he came to them with clear proofs, they said: 'This is plain magic.'"

7 "And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against God, while he is being invited to Islam? And God does not guide the wrongdoing people."

8 "They intend to put out the light of God with their mouths. But God will bring His light to perfection/complete His light, even though the disbelievers dislike it."

9 "It is He Who has sent His messenger with guidance and the true religion to make it victorious over all other religions, even though the polytheists/pagans dislike it."

10 "O you who believe, shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful torment?"

11 "That you believe in God and His Messenger, and that you strive in the cause of God with your wealth and your lives/yourselves, that will be better for you, if you only knew."

12 "He will forgive your sins, and admit you into gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwellings in gardens of Eden, that is indeed the great success."

13 "And something else which you love, help from God, and an imminent victory. So give good news to the believers."

14 "O you who believe, be you helpers (in the Cause) of God as said Jesus, son of Mary, to the disciples: 'Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of God?' The disciples said: 'We are God's helpers'. Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the victorious."
