Alif-Lâm-Mîm-Râ. These are the Verses of the Book, and the truth that which is sent down to you from your Lord. But most people do not believe (become Mumin).
It is Allah who erected the (levels of) heavens without pillars that you see. Then, He established Himself upon the Throne and He has subjected the sun and the moon to His command. Each one pursues its course for an appointed term. He manages and regulates all matter. He explains the Verses in detail that you may be certain of reaching your Lord (of having your spirits reach Allah before death).
And He it is Who spreads out the earth and makes it longer. He created in it firm mountains and rivers, and from all of the creation He made therein two (opposite) mates. He makes the night cover the day. Most surely there are Signs (proofs) in this for a people who reflect.
In the earth there are neighboring continents (sections of land) and gardens of vines and green crops and date-palms growing into two or three from a single stem root. They are watered with the same water, and some of them We make more excellent (in taste and smell) than others to eat. Most surely there are Signs in this for a people who understand.
If you find it strange, then actually strange is their saying: “What! When we are dust, shall we then certainly be raised in a new creation?” These are those who deny their Lord. And these are the ones who have chains on their necks, and they are the inmates of the Fire. In it they shall abide forever.
