And nor the darkness and the light (are not equal either).
And nor the shade and the heat (are not equal either).
And neither are the living and the dead equal. Surely Allah makes whom He wills hear, and you cannot make those hear who are in the graves.
Surely We have sent you with the truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a Warner. There is not a nation but a Warner has passed among them.
And if they are belying you, so did those before them indeed belied (their Messengers). Their Messengers brought to them clear arguments (plain proofs, miracles) and the Psalms (the Pages) and the enlightening Book.
Then I seized those who disbelieved. After this how was My denial (My being denied)?
Have you not seen that Allah sends down water from the sky? Then We brought forth therewith crops (fruits) of various colors. And among the mountains are paths, white and red, and black and intensely black?
And likewise of men, cattle, moving creatures, are of various colors. Those of His servants only who are the learned (scholars) are in reverence towards Allah. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, Oft-Forgiving.
Surely those who recite the Book of Allah and keep up the Prayer and spend out of what We have provided for them secretly and openly, hope for a trade (gain) that will never perish.
Their wages (rewards) are paid back to them fully and (Allah) increases them out of His Virtue. Surely He is Oft-Forgiving, the One Who is thanked.
