Alif-Lâm-Râ. These are the Verses of the Wise Book.
Does it seem strange to men that We revealed to a man from among themselves, (saying): “Warn the people and give good news to those who believe (who wish to reach Allah before death)”? For them there is a Rank of Sıddik (Truthfulness) with their Lord. The disbelievers say: “This is most surely a manifest magician”.
Surely your Lord Allah is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days, then rose over the Throne (beyond existence). (He) regulates the affairs and there is no intercessor except after His Permission. This is Allah, your Lord. Be a servant to Him. Do you not then deliberate?
To Him is the return of all of you. The Promise of Allah is true. Surely He begins the creation in the first instant. Then those who believe (who wish to reach Allah before death) and do improving deeds (that purify the souls’ hearts) are returned to Him again, that He may reward them with justice. And as for those who disbelieve, for them there will be a drink of hot water and painful torment because they disbelieved.
He it is Who made the sun a Radiance and the moon a glorious light. And measured out for it stages that you might know the numbers and the computation of years. Allah did not create anything but with truth. He makes manifest the Verses for a people who know.
Most surely in the variation of the night and the day and what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth, there are Signs (proofs) for a people who have piety (Takwa).
