The Believers (Al-Mu' minoon)
118 verses, revealed in Mecca after The Prophets (Al-Anbyaa') before Prostration (Al-Sajdah)
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
۞ Prosperous are the believers, (1) Who are humble in their prayers, (2) those who turn away from all that is frivolous; (3) And those who pay the Zakat. (4) And who guard their private organs. (5) except with their spouses and slave-girls. The practice of carnal relations is lawful with them. (6) But those who covet more than this will be transgressors; (7) (Prosperous are those) who preserve their trusts and pledges (8) and who guard their prayers [from all worldly intent]. (9) and who are steadfast in their prayer. (10) Who will inherit al-Firdaus. They will abide therein eternally. (11) And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay. (12) Then We placed him as a sperm in a firmly established lodging; (13) We then turned the drop of fluid into a clot of blood, then the clot into a small lump of flesh, then the lump into bones, then covered the bones with flesh; then developed it in a different mould; therefore Most Auspicious is Allah, the Best Creator. (14) Then verily, thereafter, ye are sure to die. (15) Then lo! on the Day of Resurrection ye are raised (again). (16) We have indeed fashioned above you seven paths. Never were We unaware of the task of creation. (17) And We sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and We gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, We are Able to take it away. (18) Then We produce for you therewith gardens of date-palms and grapes, wherein is much fruit for you and whereof ye eat; (19) as well as a tree that issues from [the lands adjoining] Mount Sinai, yielding oil and relish for all to eat. (20) And lo! in the cattle there is verily a lesson for you. We give you to drink of that which is in their bellies, and many uses have ye in them, and of them do ye eat; (21) And on them, as well as in ships, ye ride. (22)
