123 verses, revealed in Mecca after Jonah (Younus) before Joseph (Yousuf)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
Alif. Lam. Ra. This is a Book from One who is All-wise and All-aware. Its verses are well composed and distinctly arranged (from one another) (1) Saying: ye shall not worship ought except Allah. Verily I am unto you from Him a warner and a bearer of glad tidings. (2) And (commanding you): "Seek the forgiveness of your Lord, and turn to Him in repentance, that He may grant you good enjoyment, for a term appointed, and bestow His abounding Grace to every owner of grace (i.e. the one who helps and serves needy and deserving, physically and with his wealth, and even with good words). But if you turn away, then I fear for you the torment of a Great Day (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (3) Unto Allah is your return, and He is over everything Potent. (4) Lo! They fold up their breasts that they may conceal themselves from Him. Surely when they cover themselves up with their garments Allah knows well what they cover and what they reveal. Indeed He even knows the secrets hidden in the breasts. (5) ۞ And there is none that walks upon the earth whose sustenance does not depend on the mercy of Allah He knows where it shall stay and where it shall be deposited; everything is in a clearly explaining Book. (6) And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and His Throne was upon the waters -- that He might try you, which one of you is fairer in works. And if thou sayest, 'you shall surely be raised up after death,' the unbelievers will say, 'This is naught but a manifest sorcery.' (7) And thus it is: if We defer their suffering until a time-limit set [by Us,] they are sure to say: "What is preventing it [from coming now]?" Oh, verily, on the Day when it befalls them there will be nothing to avert it from them; and they shall be overwhelmed by the very thing which they were wont to deride. (8)
