Elucidated (Fussilat)
54 verses, revealed in Mecca after Forgiver (Ghaafer) before Consultation (Al-Shooraa)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Ha Mim. (1) A sending down from the Merciful, the Most Merciful. (2) A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Qur'an in Arabic, for people who understand;- (3) to be a herald of glad tidings as well as a warning. And yet, [whenever this divine writ is offered to men,] most of them turn away, so that they cannot hear [its message]; (4) They say: “Our hearts are securely wrapped up against what you call us to, and in our ears is a heaviness, and between you and us there is a veil. So act; we too are acting.” (5) Tell them, (O Prophet): “I am only a human being like you. It is revealed to me that your God is One God; so direct yourselves straight to Him, and seek His forgiveness. Woe to those who associate others with Allah in His Divinity, (6) Woe to the pagans, who do not pay zakat and have no faith in the life to come. (7) (As for) those who believe and do good, they shall surely have a reward never to be cut off. (8)
