O mankind! A parable is set forth for you. Therefore listen to it. Surely those whom you worship besides Allah cannot even create a fly, even if they should all gather for it (to create). And if the fly should snatch away anything from them, they could not take it back from it (the fly). So weak are the seeker and the sought.
They could not rightfully estimate Allah’s Power. Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.
Allah chooses Messengers from the angels and men. Surely Allah is All-Hearing, All-Seeing.
He knows what is before them and what is behind them (the guardian angels) and to Allah are all orders returned.
O you who believe (who are âmenû, who which to reach Allah before death)! Bow down and prostrate yourselves. And be servants to Allah and do good that you may have Salvation.
And strive hard in Allah with its due. He has chosen you. Has not laid upon you any hardship in the Religion which is the religion of your father Abraham. He named you Muslims (submitters to Allah) before and in this (the Qur’ân), that the Messenger may be a witness to you, and you may be bearers of witnesses to people. Therefore keep up the Prayer and pay alms, hold fast to Allah (disappear in Allah). He is your Friend. How excellent Friend, how excellent Helper.
