Allah! (there is) no god but He, the Ever living, the Self-Subsisting by Whom all things subsist.
It is He Who sent down the Book in parts (verse by verse) (the Qur’ân) to you with truth, confirming what is in their hands (Books). And He sent down the Torah and the Gospel as well.
Aforetime, as a Guidance (Hidayet) for the mankind (He sent down the Torah and the Gospel) and (then) He sent down the Discernment (the Furqân, the criterion of judgment between the right and the wrong, the Qur’ân) Verily they denied the Verses (Signs) of Allah, for them there is a severe torment; and Allah is All-Mighty, All-Able of Retribution.
Truly, nothing is hidden from Allah in the earth and in the heaven.
He it is Who shapes you in the wombs as He wills. There is no god but He, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
He it is Who has sent down to you the Book. Some of its Verses are Muhkem (decisive, firm, containing decrees, whose meanings are plain), they are the Foundation of the Book and others allegorical (open to interpretations); then as for those in whose hearts there is a swerving (an incline to meaninglessness) pursue the allegorical seeking dissension (Al-Fitnah, disorder, confusion, tumult) and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation, but none knows its Interpretation except Allah; and those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it, it is all from our Lord”; and none do mind except Ulu’l Elbâb (those who have attained to the continuous remembrance of the Name of Allah).
Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us (gave us Hidayet), and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the One Who Bestows.
Our Lord! Verily, it is You Who will gather the mankind together on a Day about which there no doubt. Allah does not break His Promise.
